On today’s ABC episode of the Daytime Confidential podcast Luke, Regan and Eye on Soaps’ Belinda (The View From the Recliner’s Edge) discuss the latest storylines and news for the week of November 9, including: More fan favorites return to All My Children for the 40th Anniversary. Julia Barr, Eden Riegel, Eva La Rue, Leven Rambin and more are set to return. The question becomes, can Chuck Pratt whip AMC into shape so that lapsed fans who tune in will have reason to stick around? Is there someone missing from the line up of returnees who you want to return? BethAnn Bonner makes her Pine Valley debut. Is it hard to watch and believe the Zach and Kendall storyline knowing that Thorsten Kaye isn’t making the move to L.A.? Annie pretends to fake the loss of a baby only to find out she’s actually pregnant. How original. Chad Brannon is returning to General Hospital for one episode. Luke is sick of the smug, spoiled Michael Corinthos III, but Regan loves this Michael. What do you think of him? Jonathan Jackson has had some time to settle back into the role of Lucky, but Regan isn’t sure she’s liking this version of Lucky. Hear her explain why. Is Dante’s secret identity the worst kept secret in town or would that be Jake’s paternity? Everyone and their mother seems to know–or will soon find out–who he really is. Bass ass Mitch Laurence has returned to shake up the citizens of Llanview’s lives. Were Jessica and Natalie’s reaction to over-the-top? The DC crew was disappointed with how the revelation that Mitch is Rex’s father played out. Couldn’t it have waited until Rex returned to Llanview so that we could see more people’s reaction all at once? Marcy gave birth to her miracle baby in a dramatic scene, but we’re happy she finally has a child. All this and much more on today’s show!
