This group really wants to spill tea but Alan won't go there. Alan is horrible today. He keeps interrupting.

 

Maybe Alan should encourage people to send questions to either his social media account or in the comments section of the corresponding YouTube video ahead of time.  Maybe then he can sift through comments, questions to share with the guests.  The chat section sometimes has interesting questions, comments but is in general a mess with requests for other guests, blah blah blah that have nothing to do with the group of actors that are on the actual livestream.

And Alan mostly seems to ignore the chat section anyway.

It's a good thing this was a very engaging group. Alan is horrible as always. Barbara Walters she ain't .

He needs a producer.  I know it's unlikely that he considers it a professional effort but still, he needs some help.

This one went by too fast. Alan ruined this one for me. The actors were fine telling their stories and he'd interrupt them. 

 

Liz to Allyson: You're giving your husband credit for your work?...lol

I've never seen this before, but Yvonne Perry reminds me of Cady McClain with some of her mannerisms here. 

 

I haven't been bothered by Alan that much, and honestly wasn't bothered much in this one. The William Fichtner/Martha Byrne one was a different story. I though Alan was typing while William was talking, which I later read wasn't typing, but static. However, Alan was very clearly not listening, which clearly disturbed WF and MB both. I think William deserved much better. Overall, though, I remain mostly thankful for Alan organizing these at all.

Allyson Rice has a YouTube page. I hope she posts some classic ATWT episodes. I'm sure she has the Walsh takeover story and it's conclusion. I'd love to see it again. No one has ever posted those episodes on YouTube.

So I'm still having a blissful time bingeing '86, but uhhh, this was a lot!

 

 

The fakeout on making people think Shannon is Lucinda’s phantom caller is pretty obvious - Ron Carlivati was doing only slightly less subtle ones a few years ago. I like to think I’d have guessed it was Iva, but I dunno as AFAIK there’s very little textual hints whatsoever that I know of beforehand that Lily was not Lucinda’s? At least not in the most of the three months I've seen. Just hints visually and in the blocking with Iva, Lily and Lucinda, or in her bonding with the Snyders. They do smack you in the face with it when Lily says the Snyders are like a real family to her, and Iva is literally tucking Lily into bed, but even then I don’t recall any discussion of Lily being adopted. I wonder if I’d have pieced the secret together from context clues but who knows, esp since they were just coming off the Sierra reveal. I feel privileged to finally get to see this - just watched the Friday cliffhanger where Lucinda walks into the bar to meet her tormentor.

 

They've begun introducing a crop of new men like Casey Peretti, and I understand the Snyders I'm unfamiliar with like Seth come next. I wonder if they seriously intended Casey for Frannie, or Iva for Steve. They also namedrop Emily running away here, preparing us presumably for the great Melanie Smith.

In watching the livestream with Hillary Bailey Smith, Scott Bryce and Gregg Marx, I got the impression that Casey was considered a more serious prospect for Frannie.  I don't get that sense with Iva and Steve but who really knows for sure, if Frank Runyeon had wanted to stay? 

It was for the appearance Colleen McDermott that those Emily hints were being dropped. Melanie Smith didn't appear onscreen as Emily until early 1987.

If I remember correctly, the reveal of Lucinda not being Lily's biological mother came during her rivalry with Whit McColl, as she blamed him for her husband Martin's suicide over blackmail involving that secret. 

 

I do think it would have still been a surprise to viewers about Iva and Lily.

Yvonne was fired by John Valente. 

 

I'm glad Yvonne was fond of Marland but I thought even his material for her was poor.

Rosanna and Ben as a couple

 

Yvonne mentioned the firings of her and ART. 

 

That's surprising, as I think she was gone by the time Ben arrived. I remember reading at the time there was no long term story plans for ATWT - maybe it was a last minute firing.

 

So was there any interesting gossip that was hinted at? It sounds like the whole thing was poorly done so I won't be watching.

During their confrontation, Lucinda scoffs at the idea that Lily's adoption secret could've had anything to do with Martin's suicide - she blames it on McColl as though it's an entirely separate issue. I thought she came on blaming Whit McColl for ruining his business. It's Iva who suggests to her Martin could've had another reason. But you'd know better than me.

I haven't seen any of that in a long time to be honest - I don't really remember when that aspect was written in.

    • First...*waves @Mr. Vixen* and congrats on the next book.   I think...it's Brenda so what could go wrong? Please register in order to view this content   But seriously, it is a great concept. And ohhh how my mind sees so many angles and what you wrote. I would love to see a series like this.   As for me...I might have to chew on what I would do as a spinoff for a spell...:) 
    • Would these rather creepy drawings entice you to devote 1 hr each morning to 2 new soaps?
    • RHOD   Now that was much, much better.   So clearly for me, it had to be who was spotlighted. For the last few episodes, the focus has been on Brandi, Kary, and Stephanie with LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron getting moments here and there, but most in the background. This episode was the end of the Oaklahoma trip and heading back to Dallas. Once there, the show shifted to individual scenes so it was only natural that it shifted since the stronger people with individual scenes (and are still somewhat likeable) are LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron. And I liked all of them. And ooooo at the next leg of the LeeAndra family drama. I keep saying...she's so what soap opera heroines are made of. And as usual...the next nugget she gave in the saga of her vs her brother produced new questions. Hopefully, the answers will start to be revealed as LeeAndra goes to meet with her mother-in-law next week.    Meanwhile, the trip started boring AF. But it ended in a good place I felt. The highlight for me was Tiffany, Kameron, and Brandi (yes, I said Brandi) performing the Bend and Snap from LEGALLY BLONDE as their warmup routine for the series of games Stephanie had set up for everybody. And not shocked that Kary does not know how to give a sincere apology so her trying to apologize to Charles the guy from last week fell flat for me.    And surely I am not the only person who saw that Brandi was clearly preggers on the trip.    Things to make you go hmmmm...   LEEANDRA. Well, well, well. Where do I start? Just like Ashley Abbott finding out that John Abbott was not her dad shattered her, there appears to be more to the story of the events surrounding LeeAndra's Dad's death. And as she was talking to Jeremy, for the first time I wondered if she had considered therapy or hmmm hypnotism? It sounded like either she was editing herself for television or that she might have blocked some of that day out. I thought she had been the one to find the body if I remember correctly...or am I wrong? She definitely saw it. And the reveal of her finding out that her mother-in-law put the one will on the bed day of death...and then Mama Dee's actions with the other will....and I'm wondering how BOTH of the moms factored into the breakdown in the relationship between LeeAndra and her brother. I get LeeAndra's reasoning for not telling him of the death immediately, but it sounded like the mother in law went all out to keep them separated. And then...Mama Dee made a deal with the Dad insuring that LeeAndra would get the inheritance in the first place. But then Mother in Law pushed for a court fight. I mean...WOW!!! This was just the stuff of good soaps. I'll say this much...LeeAndra's relationship with her family has always been her throughline throughout her time on the show and it continued to bear so much fruit for her. And that fruit continues to be juicy. And yes, I love the followup from the letter a few episodes back.    KAMERON. God, Court is hot. lol. That said...I enjoyed her misadventures with moving this week. The packing. The ribbing from Court. The psychic from an earlier episode. Court accepting it all even with an eyeroll. Who didn't like Kameron's dog? It has been natural that she is still mourning Louie and worrying about him as she moves into her dream house. Meanwhile, Kameron was fun on the trip...except for when she got angry over the bed prank that went wrong. Yeaaah...mess with my sleep, I'm a bitca, too. Please register in order to view this content   TIFFANY. Wow at her and Kameron getting along. If only it would last. Meanwhile awwww at her and her mother coming to some understanding. That was a talk that needed to happen.  Tiffany always brings the real and I will be sadden if she does decide to leave at the end of this season. And I hollered at her and the twins' science project. That was my project in elementary school so it was a cute little walk down memory lane.   BRANDI. *side-eye*   STEPHANIE. Who?   KARY. Lint.   So next week we are going to be on the mansion from DALLAS? Good. That means also we are at the end of the season.              
    • They said the show is so bad they no longer have the energy to keep up with it. 
    • Yes, the 'I'm blind and will be a burden so I'll be noble and lie' was something out of a 1930's radio soap and didn't work in 1976. Bill should have been more inventive in finding away to create a wedge b/w Brad and Leslie.
