Soaps Digest Column.
The best of the blogs.
Bill and Kate’s baby bundle took center stage on “B&B” last week, Mel said her farewells to the citizens of Salem on “DOOL,” Victor snapped out of it on “Y&R,” and Connie really let her hair down at her classy bachelorette party at The Floating Rib on “GH.” But that was just the beginning of the Daytime dysfunction that happened, so see what the bloggers had to say about their favorite Soaps.
It couldn’t have gotten more dramatic than Katie having a heart attack after her c-section, but just as we were still subjected to Hope/Liam/Steffy drama, even ailing and hospitalized Katie couldn’t avoid them. “The drama surrounding Katie giving birth and then coding was well worth watching, including her little trip into the bright light where she saw Storm,” Candace said. “I always liked Storm, even though they wrecked his character toward the end. Not so great was Katie still talking about Hope and Liam’s relationship in the middle of it all – flat-out stupid. In any case, it was high emotion as Katie’s life hung in the balance.” How was Bill throughout it all? Find out in The Bold and the Beautiful Weekly Blog.
It was a sad week in Salem as we saw Melanie make her goodbyes after Chad’s paranoid off-the-deep end reaction. Christine said, “Mel then said a poignant goodbye to Salem and family and ran away to England in an attempt to clear her head. There were many tears. Now Chad wants revenge on Gabi and maybe even Nick. Viewers are debating about whether or not Chad’s bipolar or if this is just the normal ‘DiMera craziness’. He’s always been a little ‘intense’ in the past and Casey Deidrick does well with it. Many of us have been waiting a long time to see Chad with a little more darkness. Is it sexier?” Read more about Chad’s sexy competition Nick in the Days of our Lives Weekly Blog.
After the death and stress holding Port Charles hostage lately, everyone needed to loosen up and blew off steam at “Kate’s” bachelorette party. A special shout out goes to Sonny for making sure the event was well secured. Hollie stated, “Hands down, without a doubt the best thing to hit the screen this week was buttoned-up meat head Milo stepping up his beefcake status by shaking it for the ladies at Connie’s bachelorette party at The Floating Rib. Everyone got to loosen up a bit, like Lulu and Maxie off on the sidelines instructing Milo how to move. Even Liz got her groove on a bit. When the whipped cream and tequila came out and Connie straddled Milo, it was a good thing Mac hustled him out of there before things got weird.” What did the boys do?

Despite Sami’s date with Rafe, this past week in Salem has been about saying a proper goodbye to Melanie. “The last days of Mel wound down this week. After leaving Europe and a promising career as premiere party girl behind to stumble through a bloody wedding, a failed marriage, a few stalkings, abductions and discovering that she was part of a family of habitually homewrecking, drug-addled, science genius skanks with saint’s complexes, she’d finally had enough of Salem. Waking up early one morning and discovering that she was nearly at the point of darning doilies with Maggie, it seemed like a life anywhere else was likely the better option.” Read more about other couples like Will and Sonny at Matt’s Musings.
The excitement continued to build toward the new writers’ material beginning to air October 12, so there is no shortage of wondering where the outrageous and entertaining storylines will go from here. And some if it has been pretty hard to follow, even for Candace. “In what universe would the Sharon we know callously order some stranger’s body to be cremated knowing it was someone’s loved one?” she asked. “Her antics at the funeral – though funny and entertaining on a certain level – also illustrated how unlike her true self she has become. She didn’t even wait for Noah, who believed his grandfather had died, to get to the service. She was going to marry Tucker, and has now threatened a public battle with Victor without any thought to her kids. Huh? Her super catty scenes with Doris didn’t ring true either. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved to catch glimpses of Sharon’s dysfunctional or bitchy side; it made her more interesting, but one could argue that the fundamentals of the character are being lost at this point. Not okay.” Find out more about what happened last week in The Young and the Restless Weekly Blog.
