In the latest Bold & Beautiful column, Richard dubs Carter and Quinn’s hook-up the sexiest scene in years. The same enthusiasm definitely did not extend to the advice that Brooke has been doling out, Hope’s strange wardrobe and the show’s failure to use play Katie in Bill’s latest storyline.

Days of Our Lives

The Hallmark Channel is finally getting fully back into movie production. Not only do they have two premieres slated for May, but they’ve just announced a movie trilogy, The Wedding Veil. Inspired by Lori Wilde’s book There Goes the Bride: Wedding Veil Wishes, it will star Salem stalwart Alison Sweeney (Sami). Make sure you check out some behind-the-scenes action and further details.

  • Ciara was hardly off the canvas before headwriter Ron Carlivati announced that Victoria Konefal will be back this summer as the character, hinting that fans might finally get the romantic reunion they’ve been waiting for.

Lori found the pacing for last week seriously off, was more than a little underwhelmed by Ciara’s exit, was glad Xander and Chanel’s marriage didn’t outstay its welcome, and — despite enjoying Lauren Koslow’s performance — has had enough of the masks in the latest Days of Our Lives column.

General Hospital

Co-stars and couple Wes Ramsey (Peter) and Laura Wright (Carly) spent last week celebrating their fourth anniversary with a series of posts detailing how they mett years ago, where their paths crossed again and how they keep the romance alive. You won’t want to miss Ramsey’s romantic message to Wright.

  • Maurice Benard (Sonny) paid tribute to the woman who had a huge impact on his life, even making sure he stayed on the acting path at a point in his life when he considered becoming a preacher!
  • Fans were thrown for a loop when Steve Burton (Jason) revealed a hairy new look on Instagram. Be sure to take a peek at his fakeover and the response it received.
  • A conversation between Elizabeth and Scott hinted last week that perhaps her long-absent dad might soon return. But who should play Jeff Webber? We have a few suggestions.
  • More details have been released about the upcoming tribute to John Reilly and his character Sean Donely. But there is one major figure close to that character who won’t be back.

In this week’s General Hospital column, Dustin found himself wondering if Peter was being truthful, worried about the show’s latest baby plot, loved watching Ava put Carly in her place and was thrilled by Obrecht and Scott’s scenes.
