I don't think that they fired Loren just because Mishael is returning. After all, Elena is still there to have a quad with Devon, Hilary, and Elena so it isn't like the Black characters are being written off. I think that they fired Loren to fund the wayback machine of Kevin, Chloe, Chelsea, Avery, etc. Those are a lot of characters to reset the show back to Griffith's idea of his "glory days. The actor who plays Tessa was also taken off contract and is now recurring so her story might also be wrapping up soon.

The actor is great the character was lame. I won't miss her.. Altho leaving Devon and Elana is pretty weak.. they are horrible

It's rumored that Daniel Goddard went to the producers and complained about the Traci & Cane love story. That's why the writers had to end Trane so abruptly.

He is so gross.. they never should have brought the character back to life. What a waste. And the actor makes me hurl.

Not necessarily true. We like PB and he doesn’t have. A major story. We like CG and Mariah is barely seen except when she’s propping Tessa or being a buddy to Kyle and/or Lola.

Not a PB fan here. I haven't liked Jack since TL left the part.

I've gotten used to him, over the years but I really did fall in love with Terry Lester as Jack. The same with Jill. This Jill is much saner than the original.

She’s a lot more gracious than I would be in that situation. Yeah yeah it’s business. But Black, White, Green or Purple, this whole thing was handled badly. I’m glad she’s got some things in the works and doesn’t harbor any ill feelings.

What does it say about the creative team that they couldn't figure out a storyline for an attractive, multi-talented, young woman who didn't have baggage  as a thief, liar, kidnapper, or murderer?

I could've gone with Ana/Kyle or Ana/Mariah or Ana/New character but I guess it's like someone mentioned upthread: there can be only one.

With her age range Ana could've been paired with Kyle, Fen, Theo (which it seemed they would try), Nate, Mariah, Tessa and even some of the other actors. The fact that they didn't even try tells us all we need to know. What other young, talented twentysomething doesn't even get a chemistry test on a SOAP? They ain't slick! But I'm happy she's so gracious and that she already booked a primetime gig. I hope it's something good. She deserves to be super successful and I'm sure she will be.

Yep. Can anyone remember the last time a young soap character connected to a legacy family was on for as long as Ana without even an attempt at a romantic pairing?

Like I commented before, Ana was mostly a placeholder character from the very beginning and was likely never intended to be much more than that. Once Devon had a new (racially ambiguous) babysitter in Elena, Ana became redundant. Note that it was uncertain whether the LL was being let go until the very last minute. Clearly (to me, anyway) TPTB were negotiating with someone else and LL was used as a stalking horse. Good on her for being gracious about it though. It's an especially tough road out there for actresses with certain of her attributes.

But Black, White, Green or Purple

Nah, I'm not willing to pretend that if LL was Green or Purple she'd still have a job.

I'm not. Call me a Pollyanna but I just don't think this was racial. I think they just got bored and didn't want to write for her anymore. Should anything come out that proves me wrong I'll be very disappointed. Not saying it never happens. Just that I prefer to think this wasn't one of those times

The point I didn't make very well is that referring to people of color by hues which don't apply to actual humans tends to trivialize the existence of POC and the possibility that they do indeed have issues directly attributable to their race.

We can agree to disagree on whether racism or colorism were factors in LL's treatment by Y&R during her tenure there.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Y&R has had a long, sorted history of shafting it's black actors. MM's Hillary was the only black female since Drucilla's death who lasted beyond one season on this show. 20 years ago, Y&R caved to pressure regarding a planned Victoria/Neil story. While I've heard that the hysterectomy Lily received was to work around CK not wanting to appear pregnant IIRC, there could've been any numbers of ways to get around that, starting with finding another actress that would do her job. Instead, the only child of the only black supercouple became infertile and given only one pregnancy.

Also, Winters Wednesdays.

At very best, it's just looks really, really, really bad for a network that's been dragged for this before.

I take back what I said about guiltily admiring DG's hustle with fans, Insta, etc to keep his job if the rumor is true. He's the weak link without family on the show now---he should have been BEGGING for storyline with an Abbott! It seems counterintuitive he would do that....but maybe he wants that Victoria kiss to come around again?

He should've stayed gone when he was killed off in 2011, but TIIC caved to those rabid stans that paid for the plane to fly a banner of suppoer over CBS's office. 

Me being a Star Trek fan, I'm no stranger to fan petitions and campaigns to keep a show going, but his stories were running thin even back then. But now, he's more expendible than Rey. He may be single, but he can provide support for his twit sister at least. Who does Cane have:

  • Lily: Gone and hopefully living her best life far away from him
  • His older children: MIA. Likly to "attend college" away from GC
  • His affair baby Sam: Whomst?!
  • Surrogate mother Jill: shows up twice a year, if that
  • Friends: you're kidding, right?

Yeah, he can leave yesterday. Bye.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Mishael Morgan is back! She has signed a new contract. I am thrilled. The question is how they will handle her return. Is Hilary back from the dead or is this is a long lost twin or doppelganger situation.

I need to be honest, we've had enough twins and dopplegangers…..I'd rather a weird, bizarre retcon where she was kept alive somehow (but lost the baby). On a podcast recently they were saying they could blend into it that creepy, unethical doctor who was obsessed with Ashley into the storyline too. Did he have a connection with Hillary as well? I actually missed Hillary's into to the show---but man she was a breakout star. Letting her go was such a mistake.

Devon goes into a church,  "Our Lady of Lost Virginity" and kneels to pray when he is tapped on the shoulder by Sister Pancetta (MM).  Devon has his work cut out for him.

Wasn't it Dr. Neville who helped Neil keep Hilary alive?

I hate it when they have these long slow extended deaths, and then bring the character back.  But Hilary will definitely spice things up.

Until I see it officially reported on a reputable site, right now I'm not quite buying the news about Mishael Morgan. So far all I've seen is several soap forums quoting each other about something allegedly in the next print edition of SOD. Meanwhile SOD doesn't have anything about it on their social media and neither does CBS. CBS isn't likely to leak that kind of announcement to print media before online media.

If this turns out to be a fake spoiler, I will be crushed. I saw it on another board, but it isn't on SOD's twitter so it hasn't been officially been announced.

I'd love to see Dr. Neville back.  I thought Michael E. Knight did a great job with the character and would certainly do so again, given half a chance.

Big yes to both of these sentiments. If they are looking for a way to bring Mishael back, using Dr Neville\MEK would be a great soapy way to do it.

THEN keep Knight around as a possible love interest for Ashley AND\OR (wait for it) Tracy. I remember when the sisters were both involved with Brad, without either alienating the audience. 

And, not gonna lie, would like for Tracy and Neville to, ultimately, end up together.

I would watch the he'll out of an age appropriate romance like that played out, with those actors. Just sayin.

also wouldn't object to a Jack Celeste pairing....

How I've longed for your return... MM or not.

But what a difference MEK and Gloria would make to the overall tone of the show. Which is right now grinding and chewing its own cud, sorta like B&B.

One quirky little comment or just a look from Dr. Silverhair or Gloria would make my day when they were on.  A bit of humour would be a relief from the current storylines.

I always thought it was odd that moments after he looked at Hillary, Dr. oldNate said "nothing more can be done".  Not the usual "let's try everything and call in experts from around the globe" attitude that GC Memorial is known for.

As much as I truly loathe defending anything regarding B&B and the worst story in the show's entire history, I can't say it was anything like it's usual fare. I guess their gamble paid off, even thought I will forever be salty about that.

But Y&R deserved to lose it's top spot. Show is not offensively bad--not like the days of MyPolar Sharon and Victor Newman eating up the show--but it's boring as hell. We've seen Nick and AA per on one another's leg, we've seen families fight over Christian, we've seen the Staff repeat her lines three times and flair and slink around the office in cocktail wear at 30 betow temperatures.

And Kola continue to cure insomnia with their ineffable lameness. I though Lily and Came bored me back in the day but oh nooooooooo. I'm hoping this is leading to someone getting shot at the alter because there's no reason a couple is this damn boring. Can Klye and Summer fly into LA and get the Forresters' laywers to annul their marriage before Carter gets disbarred? The sooner they're split the summer Kola get married and we move onto new shit.

I could've sworn he married her once before for some ass-covering reason.
