  1. Nice. Things are on the upswing for all soaps, which is good for the industry as a whole.

  3. The wedding fiasco was a really good multiple episode success. Lots of drama and terrific acting by all involved. Camilla and Blake and Chandler were all great. Freddie Smith and Casey (Chad) and Allison Sweeney were fantastic too. Still reeling at the repercussions. So glad the baby secret is out and the story continues. Hope Will and Sonny can work things out and eventually reunite.
