As The Soap Turns: The recent shocking twists of daytime dramas
July 31, 2015
Hosted by Dan J. Kroll
Kroll Call goes back to its Soap Central Live roots for an hour of anything and everything soap. Soaps In Depth's executive editor Richard Simms returns to the show to help navigate some of the biggest soap stories of the moment. After 37 years, Tony Geary opted to walk away from his General Hospital alter ego. And while the foggy sendoff was reportedly not what the actor wanted, fans have been vocal about what they wanted from the farewell episode. And did GH miss a huge opportunity to lure in new or lapsed viewers? General Hospital also parted ways with its head writer, Ron Carlivati, a man that Geary had stinging criticism for. Did Ron need to be replaced, or did he just need some time to recharge his batteries. And what challenges do the show's new co-head writers face? Then, The Bold and the Beautiful pulled off yet another shocker. Just a few months after it stunned daytime viewers by announcing that a core character was a transgender woman, the CBS soap killed off a major character.
