All My Children Testing one’s lover is never a good idea, as Bianca (Eden Riegel) found out when she decided to put Reese (Tamara Braun) and Zach (Thorsten Kaye) together to see what would happen because her mother, who never liked Reese, had told her something was going on between them. An upset Bianca had a minor car accident and landed in the hospital and refused to talk to Reese. So Reese returned Bianca’s ring and decided to move back to Paris. Bianca came to her senses and went after Reese. The wedding — in Connecticut so it can be legal — is back on. Later, Erica appeared to be mending fences with Reese, but Bianca’s mother always has a hidden agenda. And Zach began to question if there was actually something going on between him and Reese. Yikes. Toss in Bianca’s brother, Josh, going postal on Zach and who knows what else will happen to daytime’s only lesbian couple. Monday-Friday, 1 p.m. on ABC.
As the World Turns Jade and Casey managed to get Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann) back together. The unambiguously gay duo ended up immersed in a flurry of kisses in Old Town. They went back to Luke’s empty house to finally consummate their relationship after two very long years. Shirts came off, kisses got more intense and then … cut to commercial. Later, there they were, fresh from the shower, wet, tousled, shirtless and talking about how they were glad they had waited. Two years anticipating these two making it to the bedroom and the producers cheated viewers of the consummation. Fie. Later, Brian tried to fix things with Lucinda, but she said he needed to acknowledge that he’s gay. Luke and Noah went to check on him and saved Brian from possible suicide. He finally acknowledged that he is indeed gay. Lucinda came in on that revelation and offered to help him get therapy to sort it all out. Lawrence Lau’s tortured performance is Emmy-worthy. Monday-Friday, 2 p.m. on CBS.
