Bad Timing: The insanely popular Eden Riegel returns to All My Children Oct. 17. Good news for us, bad news for her character, Bianca. Erica's youngest daughter shows up in Pine Valley just as a killer tornado hits. No one knows she's in town until Zach (Thorsten Kaye) finds her body in the rubble. And get this: Binks has a new lover, played by soap great Tamara Braun (ex-Carly, General Hospital)! BTW: If you're not into Riegel's outrageous web series, Imaginary Bitches, on YouTube, you're missing out on the most shameless pleasure ever.

Survivor: Oakdale: This week, As the World Turns kills off supervillain James Stenbeck - played by Anthony Herrera - when he takes a flyer off a lighthouse. But is he really most sincerely dead? As veteran ATWT fans know, Stenbeck has come back from the dead many times - even after a fall from an airplane. Herrera's quite the survivor, too. In 1997, he was diagnosed with terminal lymphoma but is still with us thanks to a stem-cell transplant. - Michael Logan
