Reminiscing about what happened the week of April 30 – May 4 2007 in our soaps!

We love our soaps but we often commiserate over some of the more stagnant storylines. Fans are often quoted as saying ‘nothing ever changes over the years’ and ‘you can take a year off soaps and when you return, there’s a good chance you won’t miss a thing’. Sometimes we see parallels from what happened last year or a few years ago with what’s going on now. We dug up some archived recaps to learn just how close to the truth the fans are. Take a look at what we discovered.
