COME WHAT MAY
Soap Opera Digest|May 03, 2021
Your must-have guide to what’s happening in the month ahead.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

“May holds another jaw-dropping surprise for the Forresters, Logans, Spencers and our viewers,” teases Executive Producer/Head Writer Bradley Bell. “Be sure to tune in every day to see the shocking twist that no one saw coming.”

Vinny’s Death: “May 2021 takes us deeper into the aftermath of the death of Vinny and ensuing cover-up. Liam’s guilt takes on a tornado-like force as he continues to spiral downward, all while attempting to remain normal during his much-desired reconciliation with Hope. Meanwhile, Dollar Bill takes his credo of ‘Protect the family at all costs’ to an all-new high. Thomas makes two vows in May: one, to be there for Hope no matter what she needs; and two, to find Vinny’s killer and see that justice is served. Expect the unexpected as this super-hot story unfolds.”

Zoe/Carter/Paris/Zende: “Zoe has finally come to see how profoundly she hurt Carter. She enlists the help of Paris, Ridge, Carter and even Quinn to help win back the man she loves. But getting back into Carter’s good graces and his bed may be more challenging than she could ever have imagined. And now that she’s seemingly Quinn’s BFF, anything is possible. Zoe also gives Paris her blessing to be with Zende.”

Quinn/Eric: “Quinn and Eric just haven’t had the passion in their relationship that they’ve had in the past. The love is there, and he’s forgiven her, but Eric just can’t seem to trust his beautiful and talented wife. If things go according to Quinn’s plan, her portrait will remain above the mantel at the mansion, and she will remain Mrs. Eric Forrester forever. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans....”

Steffy/Finn: “Steffy and Finn prepare for the birth of their baby, and in late May you’ll see them return in full force.”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES

Head Writer Ron Carlivati gives the scoop on what’s shaking in Salem.

Belle/Shawn/John/Marlena/Jan: “Jan’s plan has worked out fairly perfectly for her, and her frame-up job of Belle has succeeded and Belle has been arrested. Shawn works with Belle and they try to figure out who did it, and soon, they are hot on Jan’s trail. We’ve seen Jan take desperate action when the walls close in on her. Jan seizes a hostage and inadvertently ends up with two. John and Marlena will be heavily involved in trying to clear Belle.”

Ben/Claire: “Ben is completely devastated after Ciara leaves town with Theo, and he is pretty broken and alone. He and Claire have bonded and confided in each other over the past few months, and Claire is there for him when Ciara leaves. Will that comfort lead to anything romantic between these two? I think the audience knows the endgame is Ben and Ciara. Obviously, if Ben turns to Claire, that will be a complication and I don’t want to say too much about whether they’re going to act on this or not. You will have to wait and see and have a little faith in your favorite couple.”

Kristen/Brady: “Jan is not the only one whose plans are going awry; the walls are closing in on Kristen, too. She turns to an old co-conspirator to help her cover up her secret and that’s Xander. She tries to employ him as a weapon to conceal her secret but ultimately, Brady is going to uncover the switcheroo.”

Sami/Lucas/Chloe: “When Chloe is a little bit disbelieving that he’s suddenly into her again, Lucas blurts out that he’s dying of a brain tumor and wants to spend what little time he has left with Chloe. Of course, that becomes a whole caper, and Lucas is scrambling to cover up. So Lucas turns to Sami and she pulls something out of her bag of tricks. Out of this whole mess, Sami and Lucas end up in a life-or-death situation and they think this could be the end for them and sparks begin to fly.”
