Soap Opera Comings and Goings - July 2012

Updated on July 11, 2012

Comings and Goings Updates!

News from the past couple of months continues to filter through the process: First as rumors, then as confirmed departures and lastly with final tape dates and final airdates.

Comings and Goings continue to be active as the last four remaining soap operas jostle for ratings supremecy...

Below is the comings and goings news for Days or our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless. Remember these contain spoilers and healthy dose of speculation...

Don't forget to leave your thoughts in the comments section!


What started out as rumor and speculation back in May 2012 when Eileen Davidson (ex - Ashley Abbott Y&R) announced she'd been let go from The Young and the Restless has turned into fact! Eileen Davidson is returning to Days of our Lives! She commenced taping on July 10, 2012, but when Days of our Lives taping 3 months ahead, Kristen Blake or will it be Susan Banks won't appear on screen until October 11, 2012

Will Eileen return as Kristen, Susan or both!

Final Airdate

July 2012 sees Christie Clarke (Carrie Brady Reed) and Patrick Muldoon's (Austin Reed)final airdate on Days of our Lives. (July 24, 2012). Carrie's inability to suptress her feelilngs for Rafe while trying to rebuild her life with Austin and their unborn child prompts Austin and Carrie to return to their home in Switzerland.

Molly Burnett's (Melanie Jonas) final airdate has been reported as September 27, 2012. Hopeully she won't be held captive in the tunnels under Salem until then!

Peter Reckell's final airdate isn't set yet, but expect Bo Brady to depart sometime in the fall. Given that Reckell has already stated he may be interested in a return sometime in the future expect an open ended departure....

Just Visiting...

Expect to see Susan Seaforth Hayes and Bill Hayes this month on Days of our Lives as their Salem alter-egos and fan favorites, Doug and Julie Williams. With the Alice Horton secret storyline finally making it back to front burner hopefully Doug and Julie will have some news out of Africa...


Jon Hensley returns as Dr Meade from July 19, 2012 for a 5 episode run. Dr Meade was last seen in Aspen treating Steffy's knee after her run in with Hope who was self medicating anti anxiety pills...Dr Meade is said to appeal to a woman with a broken heart...

Goings, Guest appearance and a Coming

Though Eileen Davidson has tape dates and aridates for her new gig on Days of our Lives there still is no final airdate for Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless.

Jerry Douglas airs as John Abbott airs mid July. Could this have something to do with Ashely's departure from Genoa City?

Tricia Cast returned as Nina on July 3, 2012.

General Hospital - Staying!

Finola Hughes' Anna Devane will be hanging around Port Charles and hopefully seen on a regular basis. The actress has been put on contract with General Hospital.
