Plus, the hook-up that’s got fans buzzing and the truth about those exit rumors.

We know, you’re busy folks with a limited amount of time… but you also don’t want to miss any of the week’s biggest stories. That’s why we’ve gathered up all the latest news from The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless in one place. But there’s a lot to catch up on, so don’t dawdle!

The Bold and the Beautiful

Viewers have been promised a murder mystery to remember, but so far things aren’t shaking out as expected. While Vinny’s death looked an awful lot more like an accident than an intentional homicide, could there be more to it than meets the eye? You don’t want to miss our thoughts on the killer twist yet to come. Of course, part of us is hoping that the mischievous lab tech hasn’t really been ushered off to the great beyond. Read our speculation on how Vinny could still be alive.

In the newest The Bold and the Beautiful column, Richard takes a shot at where the death of Vinny could be heading, wonders what the writers were thinking with that stinker of a Paris story, and thinks offers Zende a bit of dating advice.

Days of Our Lives

Character actor James Hampton passed away last week. He played one of the soap’s most heinous villains, Saul Taylor. Can’t quite place him? We look back at the character’s memorable story as well as the actor’s eclectic career. We also pay tribute to the untimely death of Brenda Benet, who played Salem supervixen Lee Dumonde, on the anniversary of her tragic passing.

Richard is intrigued by where things could go with Xander and Chanel, wonders if there might actually be a Hope recast on the horizon, and ponders what could (but won’t) happen in Gwen’s pregnancy story in the latest Days of Our Lives column.

General Hospital

General Hospital did something out of the ordinary last Thursday when it focused an entire episode on Alexis. With the disgraced lawyer being sent off to Pentonville, it seemed like an opportune moment to look back at her complicated and often disastrous life. We got in on the action by putting together a special photo album of Alexis’ stories. With Nancy Lee Grahn’s character carted off to prison, fans are worried that the actress may be written off. See what Grahn said about her status.

Dustin isn’t sure how to feel about having yet another baby switch story on the horizon, thought that the standalone episode for Alexis was fantastic and was downright thrilled to see Peter’s end in sight as elaborated on in his General Hospital column.

The Young and the Restless

Sharon Case (Sharon) recently opened up about everything from her time on the soap to her iconic role… but our favorite bit might have been the story she shared about one very famous leading man in particular. The actress also took the time to bid a fond farewell to her erstwhile on-screen daughter as Alyvia Alyn Lind left the role of Faith behind thanks to an exciting new role.

Finally, Candace senses big trouble ahead for the misguided surrogacy story, thinks the battle between Adam and Chelsea is a beautiful thing, is enjoying Ashland toying with Kyle, was relieved to see some making out onscreen, and said farewell to Faith in The Young and the Restless column.
