A Few Soap Opera Questions and Answers

at . Comments
Here are a few burning soap opera questions - and answers, of course - from some curious fans:

Q: Why did General Hospital let Emily die? She and Nikolas were a good match, and weren't they a couple in real life?
A: Natalia Livingston wanted out, so General Hospital made Emily a victim of the Text Message Killer rather than recast the role again. Livingston and Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) did indeed date for a while, but they are no longer together.

Q: How could One Life to Live make Asa's loyal servant, Nigel, so disloyal?
A: If you're talking about Asa's will, One Life to Live established that David Vickers would make a less desirable Buchanan than Jared Banks, so Nigel let Jared claim the title - for now. Look for the soap to revisit that decision when David returns.

Q: Why is The Young and the Restless taking Jack down, but not Gloria? When is she going to pay?
A: Jeffrey is blackmailing Gloria into marriage, but Michael,Lauren and Kevin know the truth about the tainted face cream, so don't think this story is over!
