Soap Opera Summary
Be sure to check into General Hospital on Monday, Sept. 30. Things will be at a fever's pitch. The long awaited return of Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is set. The actress, who joined the show when she was seven, left last year to pursue a directing career. She was part of an ABC directing program. A year later she has both, film that she directed and a desire to return to the show, on which she literally grew up. This is not just a quick visit to the General Hospital emergency room; having singed a long-term contract, Robin will have regular appointments.
As if that were not enough to schedule an appointment at General Hospital, Dante and Lulu realize Spinelli is really the father of Maxie's newborn baby. The story will be biblical. As in the tale of Solomon, both couples want to have custody of baby Connie. There will be lots of angst and gulping of Zanax to get through this.
Elizabeth Dennehy who got her soap start playing Blake on Guiding Light, is retuning to daytime. The actress will interact with Ignacio Serricchio (Alex) starting Oct. 18. On Guiding Light her character was the very troubled daughter of Roger and Holly. Daughter of actor Brian Dennehy, her Guiding Light character was re-cast with Sherry Stringfield.
Jen Lilly (Theresa on Days of Our Lives) has had a very fun week. She booked an episode of The Crazy Ones staring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Geller — the original Kendall on All My Children. With "Days" on hiatus, the actress didn't have any scheduling contract. The once blonde (when she played Maxie on General Hospital), who now sports dark locks on "Days" told her twitter posse that she was doing a "happy dance" all week.
Former One Life to Live star John Brotherton (ex-Jared Banks) has joined the cast of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker's next installment of the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise. According to Deadline, Hollywood Brotherton will portray Sheppard — the right hand man of Kurt Russell's recently added character — in Fast & Furious 7. Brotherton's "One Life to Live" character married Natalie on the show. His death sent her into a downward spiral.
Nathan Owens (Cameron) confirmed at Kate Mansi's K20 Birthday event on Saturday, Sept. 21, that he has left Days of Our Lives. He is expected to air for the last time in November. Owens made his first appearance Dec. 24, 2012. He replaced Schuyler Yancey, who originated the role in April, 2012.
