FEBRUARY SWEEPS PREVIEW
Soap Opera Digest|February 07, 2022
The biggest stories you’ll be tuning in for on every show this month.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

“It should be great drama,” declares Co-Head Writer Michael Minnis of what’s ahead. “We’re pitting Forrester vs. Logan and going back to the roots of the show. Will Brooke and Ridge be able to prevail and will the truth come out about Sheila?”

Brooke/Ridge/Deacon/ Taylor/Sheila: “This is the main thrust of what we are doing in February. Slowly but surely, people are going to learn Brooke’s secret [about kissing Deacon on New Year’s Eve]. The secret will start to get out because of Douglas, and that is eventually going to lead to the beginning of the reveal. Right up until February, it’s on the precipice of Ridge finding out. Steffy and Thomas bring in some help to get actual proof before they go to Ridge and finally get him to open his eyes to Brooke.”

Carter/Paris/Zende/Grace: “Carter is trying to do the right thing but he’s drawn to Paris. Grace is going to step in. She’s going to see enough to want to put an end to this and thinks that Carter is not the route that Paris should go, given his history with Zoe and given his affair with Quinn. And she thinks Zende is just a wonderful guy. So she 30 basically threatens Carter to stay away from Paris and it’s a question of, can he do that or not? And Carter doesn’t [want] to jeopardize Paris staying at Forrester Creations and everything she’s built so far, so he’s in a dilemma.”

Quinn/Eric: “They’re repairing their relationship and spending time [with] each other. We will see Brooke confide in Eric, who is a great supporter of hers. Quinn made the ring for Zende and is probably wondering what’s going on there.”

Hope/Liam/Steffy/Finn: “Their personal relationships are pretty copacetic at the moment. Steffy is swept up in everything that’s going on with her mother and father, especially when she learns about Brooke and Deacon. We’re seeing a fair amount of Liam, especially as the talk-to for Hope, who is also swept up in the Deacon and Brooke situation.”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES

Head Writer Ron Carlivati dishes about what’s ahead in Salem.

Abigail/Kristen/Steve/Kayla/Sarah: “After Abigail gets too close to the truth, Gwen and Ava ship her off to a deserted island, where Kristen has Steve and Kayla. Abigail will soon realize that she’s not alone on the island. So the stories are starting to converge and while they’re trying to get away, they ultimately come face to face with Sarah. I will say that her return has an unusual twist.”

Chad/Tony: “This is kind of an all roads lead to the island, and it will be nice to see the DiMera brothers teaming up; we don’t get to see that too often. So Chad and Tony team up to try to find Abigail when she goes missing. And everybody is kind of ending up headed for the island.”

Xander/Gwen: “Xander finally puts his feelings for Sarah behind him and he proposes to Gwen. So just when it looks like Sarah is possibly on the brink of being rescued, Xander is making a commitment to Gwen and marriage.”

Ciara/Ben: “They are really starting to plan a future, and look for a bigger place where they’re going to start their family. And then something happens and they start to suspect that the devil may not be as gone as they thought. So they are again worried about the safety of their unborn baby and they start to investigate the possibility that the devil is back.”

MAT RULE

Some artists specialize in doing cartoon tattoos. Others have made black-and-grey realism their forte. Mat Rule is the rare artist who has mastered both. After falling in love with traditional and black-and-grey tattooing, he decided to combine the opposing genres to create an exceptionally unique signature style. His work literally pops off the skin and reminds us of movies like "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" and "Cool World" which brought cartoons into the real world. We sat down with Rule to learn how he came up with such a show-stopping style, which characters he loves tattooing most and much more.
