On today’s ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey and J Bernard discuss the latest in All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital news and storylines, including:
All My Children picking up roots and moving to LA. In this episode, recorded before ABC confirmed Jamey’s report on Tuesday, Jamey predicts that the announcement would happen this week and discusses in depth what he is hearing from his sources. He discusses the impact this shakeup will have on AMC’s veteran actors, where this leaves One Life to Live as ABC’s only New York soap and why General Hospital gets a pass because of it being the “Luke and Laura soap.” Is ABC’s solution only a band-aid until they can develop a talk show?
J Bernard shares his theory about the Who Killed Adam storyline and why he believes everything isn’t as it seems.
General Hospital re-signed popular actors Steve Burton and Leslie Charleson, keeping them on canvas. Is Drew Garrett the next Tom Pelphrey or Steve Burton and could he surpass them? GH needs to cast Michael a love interest ASAP and do whatever it takes to avoid a pairing him with his sister Kristina. Luke sees chemistry between Lulu and Dante, but J Bernard doesn’t. What does it say about GH that it takes two of Luke’s sons to beat up the son of Sonny Corinthos? Is Alexis covering up Kristina’s involvement in Claudia’s car crash out of character or is it right in line with the Alexis we know and love? Martha Byrne is a great actress, but Jamey believes needs to be on As the World Turns and not a one note Port Charles villain.
One Life to Live was gearing up for the double wedding as Matthew blackmails Bo and Nora. Matthew seems to be channeling his grandfather Asa. Should OLTL turn Matthew into this generation’s Asa? The Tea, Todd and Blaire triangle has Luke and Jamey on opposing sides. Luke wants Tea with Todd while Jamey wants him with his Blair. If Crystal Hunt could act and didn’t appear bored with the role, Stacy Morasco could be a “hellified” role. Jamey believes OLTL should set up a Who Killed Stacy Morasco murder mystery since there are already more than enough possible suspects. It could be a blockbuster story.
