We Love Soaps just broke the news that Tom Pelphrey, who just happens to be one of my favorite GL actors of ALL time, is coming to As The World Turns. DC had little deets to share, but we can all rest assured that the details of this hottie’s return will come out soon!
Ok. That title may have been a little over-exaggerated, but here are a couple of secrets that will have some spillage soon:
It’s not a big surprise, but Liberty is now pregnant thanks to her one night stand with some punk kid after being ignored by Parker.
Even less of a shock…Holden is alive! Maeve (Judi Evans) and Eb Stone (Frank Clem) will be keeping him as their captive of sorts. I definitely see new love in the air for Holden!
All signs point to sex for Rosanna and Craig. I ponder how Carly will feel about this?
Daytime Confidential is reporting that Austin Peck has been fired from As the World Turns. I am not sure how that would play out, but that’s half the comic relief right there. Who will be the next to put up with Katie’s crap?
I dropped a note below that this was all a big mistake. However, it is looking more and more as if Austin Peck has been let go from ATWT. There is no confirmation, but when rumors are swirling like this, they are usually true.
So long Brad, we knew thee well and laughed our asses off while doing it.
A sort of a trade-off, in my opinion. Days Of Our Lives fans were outraged earlier this year, and in late 2008, when Ken Corday announced the departures of Deidre Hall (Marlena), Drake Honesty (John), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Stephen Nichols (Steve) and Thaoo Penghlis (Tony). However, fans of the early 1990’s of Days seem to be rejoicing. Crystal Chappell (ex Maggie, OLTL; Olivia, GL) is returning as Dr. Carly Manning/Katerina Von Leuschner. Louise Sorel brings Vivian Alamain back, and Wally Kurth (ex Ned, GH) is back as Justin Kiriakis. It’s a casting whirlwind at Days Of Our Lives, but people do not seem to mind. Fan favorite Sorel has been sorely missed during her decade off. It will be exciting to see what Days has in store for her as she returns to Salem.
One of the more ironic returns is that of Wally Kurth. His character of Justin was wildly popular with Judi Evans’ (ex Paulina, AW; ex Beth, GL) Adrienne. Judi, who also played Bonnie, recently departed from Days after a brief stint as Adrienne. Viewers wondered if Justin would return, and, of course, he didn’t. Now that Justin does return to Days, Judi Evans joins As The World Turns as Maeve, beginning on August 26. How ironic, indeed. I just hope that Justin brings back one of his children to town. He has 2 adopted children with Adrienne (they are twins): Victor and Joseph. He has son Alexander with Anjelica Deveraux, and he has Jackson biologically with Adrienne. Alexander would be 20 years old now, without SORASing. Joseph and Victor are both 18, without SORASing. I don’t remember how old Jackson is, but we could make him Will’s age, 16. I think that Justin’s return could be used well, especially in this Kiriakis-DiMera feud.
What do you all think of these returns? Would like to see other returns? Do you think that the firing of Drake, Dee, Stephen & Mary Beth was worth it, if this is the outcome? Let us know!
