Soap News: Johnny staying at GH, Victor & Sharon get romantic on Y&R Plus Soap Memes


Christie Clark (Carrie) and Patrick Muldoon (Austin) taped their final scenes on Days of our Lives yesterday. What a waste of potential.

— Meanwhile, Brant Daugherty (Noel, Pretty Little Liars) has booked a guest arc on DAYS opposite Will and Sonny.

General Hospital’s executive producer Frank Valentini confirmed on Twitter that Brandon Barash (Johnny) isn’t exiting the soap.

— The wait is almost over…Kristina Wagner returns to GH tomorrow as Felicia.

Grayson McCouch (ex-Dusty, As the World Turns; ex-Morgan, Another World) has been cast as Dr. Don Masters in the new Nickelodeon soap, Hollywood Heights.

— As reported last week, Sean Kanan is headed back to The Bold and the Beautiful as Deacon Sharpe beginning May 24th. As per TV Guide, look for Deacon to be lured back to Los Angeles by Bill to help break up Liam and Hope. Looking forward to see if they ever address Little D/Little Eric’s (born in 1999) whereabouts. Especially since he was supposed to be older than Hope (who was born on screen in 2002) – significantly aging Amber (and by extension Rick), who schemed to get Hope’s man Liam last year. Of course, Brooke doesn’t look a day over 40.

— As sins from Phyllis’ (Michelle Stafford) past begin to be exposed next month on The Young and the Restless thanks to Ricky (Peter Porte), look for Aaron Lustig to return as Dr. Tim Reid. To refresh your memory, Dr. Reid was Phyllis’ court-appointed marriage counselor, whom she ended bedding and blackmailed with a sextape. The doctor later crossed over to The Bold and the Beautiful in 2001 and dealt with another redheaded vixen, Morgan DeWitt (Sarah Buxton). Michael Damian and Lauralee Bell are also back next month for this story as Danny and Cricket The Bug Christine.

— Most Y&R fans can agree that the show doesn’t always know what to do with their younger characters (see Noah Newman), but Blake Hood, who makes his debut as the aged Kyle Jenkins Abbott today (in Canada, tomorrow in the U.S.) has told Soaps in Depth that he’s here to stay, “I’ve been here every day this week. I’m busy here. There’s not much time for anything else.”

What’s coming up:

The Bold and the Beautiful: Hope continues to pop pills in Aspen because of the paparazzi. Taylor and Ridge take a stand against Brooke in regards to their children. Caroline is troubled by a family secret (lesbians, they’re getting lesbians). Jon Hensley (ex-Holden, ATWT) appears as a doctor on May 1 and 2.

Days of our Lives: John races to save Marlena. Kate and Sami battle it out after Kate catches Sami in bed with Lucas. Madison asks Justin to handle her divorce. Brady finds out that Nicole is pregnant. EJ finds out that he’s not Stefano’s son. An explosion rocks the safe house. Charles Shaughnessy returns as Shane Donovan next week.

General Hospital: Luke asks Anna for help. Sam and Carly confide in each other. Carly takes a peak at Kate’s medical file. Starr vows revenge against Sonny. Dante and McBain work together. Todd and Tea arrive to help Starr in the charges against her. Mac and Felicia find themselves in an awkward position.

The Young and the Restless: Kyle is hurt that Jack has moved on with Nikki. Cane is investigated by the SEC. Ashley finds out that Tucker has been hiding the truth about his past with Genevieve. Victor and Sharon become romantic. Yuck.
