Long time no see, Serial Drama readers! And daytime soaps, for that matter. I haven't watched one since the end of 2013, so I figured it was time to pay a visit since I took a staycation day today (y'all, I slept till 8:10am and it was glorious).
Going in, I know very little. I haven't read any recaps, so I've just absorbed blips of information from friends and from Twitter. If pressed, here's how I'd sum up what I know: Jason's alive and played by Billy Miller but maybe has amnesia (more amnesia, rather)? Sonny killed AJ and Carly helped cover it up and Franco just revealed it in a manner similar to Todd's wedding to Blair where he exposed her for shooting Max in the middle of the vows, so now Michael knows. The Steffy/Liam/Hope triangle morphed into the Liam/Hope/Wyatt triangle, and Kim Matula is leaving the show. Thorsten Kaye plays Ridge now and Ridge has possibly hooked up with Caroline and Katie? I think Brooke married Bill and also Maya and Caroline swapped personalities. There is some sort of love triangle or quadrangle amid the children of General Hospital in which Spencer is an appropriately-Cassadinian pretentious mini-douche. Ava is pregnant. Silas had a coma wife Nina who is no longer in a coma. I have a dog named Nina.
That about sums up what I think I know. Which is already very little, so this should be an amusing little adventure. Come back later when I actually find out what's real and what's not and see how much I really do or do not miss my stories!
Here we go!
1:30pm The Bold & the Beautiful
Liam, Hope, and some people I don't know are on a plane, talking about Dutch and Australian phrases.
Deacon and Rena Sofer are kissing. I think Sofer's character's name is Quinn.
The last time I saw Sean Kanan, AJ Quartermaine was very alive and well. Sadface.
Carter is worried about Caroline. Apparently Rick didn't come home. Oh, there's Maya kissing on Rick, so I guess we know why!
Maybe the opening credits can help me sort out who's who. There's some people named Ivy and Aly who seem new and relevant.
Carter and Maya were dating the last time I watched, and he's clearly no longer a fan of hers. And she's a gold-digger now? When did that happen? Also apparently Rick is CEO now, and Maya is putting on the pressure for him to divorce Caroline.
Quinn shows Deacon an ultrasound of his grandchild, so I guess Hope is pregnant. By whom? It sounds like probably Wyatt.
