— Elizabeth Hendrickson’s final episode as The Young and the Restless’ Chloe has been set for Monday, May 26 (in Canada; airs on May 27 in the U.S.).
— The 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, June 22nd at the Beverly Hilton. No word yet on a broadcast partner. The awards were broadcast on HLN the past two years. Select nominations will be revealed during the 8:30-9 a.m. segment of Good Morning America.
— CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting that Michael Saucedo will return to General Hospital as Juan Santiago for a visit. Juan was a fixture in the Port Charles teen scene from 1999-2001. He came back in 2013 when it was revealed that he is Sabrina’s (Teresa Castillo) – via adoption of course, since Juan’s biological parents were Lily Rivera (Lilly Melgar) and Miguel Morez (Ricky Martin). Saucedo is of course married to Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth).
Rants & Raves:
- General Hospital: Sonny (Maurice Benard) & Ava’s (Maura West) Quartermaine crypt sex — I don’t know if I should be furious or if it was genius. AJ’s (Sean Kanan) death being the undoing of Sonny could be great. Let’s hope he finally pays for something.
- The Young and the Restless: I’m glad they revealed that Fake Cassie (Camryn Grimes) is Mariah, Tyler’s (Redaric Williams) ex. But her connection to Ian Ward was a surprise as well.
- The Bold and the Beautiful: Loved the reveal of Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and Thorne (Winsor Harmon) reuniting in Paris. Bring on Aly (Ashlyn Pearce) vs. Taylor.
- Days of our Lives: I still think Liam (Mark Collier) should have been Peter Blake. That is all. I cannot stress how much it would have made us care more about the “danger.”
What’s coming up:
The Bold and the Beautiful (CBS/CTV Two): Bob Barker returns to CBS Daytime!
Quinn pays Bill a visit and makes her desires known. Hope recounts the times she has spent with Wyatt and Liam and makes the viewers realize she has done nothing else with her life. Liam surprises Hope with a visit from Bob Barker(!). Your move, Liam. Oliver confides in someone about his romantic plans for Aly – Anyone else loving this pairing? Brooke wrestles with her conscience in regards to Spencer Publications. Hope receives a meaningful gift from Liam. (Meow.) Brooke resorts to desperate measures after Katie fails to see things her way.
Coronation Street (CBC/Hulu): Carla asks Tina to look after Peter.
Tina seduces Peter as Carla tries again to hold on to him. Kevin insists on a family discussion about Sophie and Maddie’s predicament. Lloyd and Andrea bury the hatchet. Carla issues Peter an ultimatum. Kevin lays down the law to Maddie. Owen and Katy discuss the Phelan situation. Carla tells Peter he needs to go to rehab. Gail starts self-defense class (LOL). Peter begs Steve for a drink. Rita’s shocked to learn that Dennis is at the hospital. Rob and Tracy discuss Peter’s predicament with Liz and Steve. Carla asks Tina to “look after” Peter. (Oh, I’m sure she will.) Tracy and Rob strike a deal with Tony. Tyrone and Fiz barricade themselves into No. 9 now that there is some excitement in their lives. Is Kirsty back or is someone masquerading as Tyrone’s abuser?
Note: FYI, Coronation Street will continue to air at 3 p.m. due to the NHL Playoffs on CBC.
Days of our Lives (NBC/Global): Danger on Smith Island!
Nicole races to Smith Island to rescue Jennifer from Liam (who really should have been Peter Blake post-op). Daniel makes a discovery at his apartment. (Unfortunately, it’s not a collection of message board comments about how boring Dannifer are.) Theresa makes a confession. Nicole and Jennifer fight to escape from Liam and if you saw the preview, Nicole has to shoot either Daniel or Liam. Eric also gets to go to Smith Island. EJ receives new evidence regarding the incriminating photo of him and Abigail. Theresa fears her role in Liam’s reign of terror will be exposed. Ciara’s proposition for Aidan. EJ confronts the person who took the photo (Greetings!). Sami reaches out to Abigail to help her with Nick. Kate drops a bomb on Jordan. EJ confronts Nick. The claws come out between Kate and Jordan.
General Hospital (ABC/City): Will Dr. Obrecht be set free?

Dr. Obrecht and Mdaeline are confident they will both be set free. Jordan displays her loyalty to the Jeromes. Luke is suspicious about Ric. Dante wants Scotty to drop the charges against Dr. Obrecht. Patrick may receive a message from Robin. Madeline has another secret for Nathan. (Let me guess, Nina – a character we’ve never seen or cared about – is really alive or is it that Victor Cassadine is his father?) “Luke” is less than thrilled with what Julian has to say about Ava. Maxie introduces Levi to Mac and Felicia. Ned and Alexis reminisce. Sam questions Patrick’s behavior. Sabrina hears about Carlos’ confession.
The Young and the Restless (CBS/Global): Faux Cassie = Mariah. Deal.
Tyler confronts Mariah – the Cassie lookalike. Victor tells Summer not to trust Sharon while Nick fills Noah in on what Victor did with Fake Cassie.

Victor and Sharon face off. Paul and Christine make a decision about their future (Will they try to have a baby?). Chloe drops a bomb on Chelsea (The “writers” made us redundant.) Billy pushes Jack to get information on Stitch.
