To say that the retooled The Bay is different from its previous seasons is an understatement! Taking its cue from the progression of online soaps such as the revival of One Life to Live, where sex and drugs and a club are part of the central focus for much of the action. As promised by creator, Gregori Martin, The Bay is certainly for more edgier than before. And while we won’t spoil all the action, fasten your seat belts!
The Bay picks up three years after the last time we saw the Garrett clan! Billed on their series website as a drama filled with forbidden love, malicious lies and taboo sex, many familiar faces from daytime return to their roles including: Mary Beth Evans, Matthew Ashford, Lilly Melgar, Terri Ivens, Jackie Zeman, Nicholas Coster, Taylor Stanley and Scott Bailey, who join Derrell Whit, Jade Harlow, Kristos Andrews, Thor Knai, Eric Fellows, Emmie Romanovich and more in the pared down cast!
In story as the new episodes pick-up, Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans) has done the unthinkable making Lex Martin (Tristan Rogers) determined to uncover the truth. Peter Garrett’s (Kristos Andrews) love life takes a complicated turn, as does a confused Lianna Ramos (Jade Harlow). Steve Jensen (Matthew Ashford) has little choice but to deal with pesky reporter Nathan Perkins (Scott Bailey), while Mayor Jack Madison (Nicholas Coster) is left to do some serious explaining. Igor Chambers (Camden Toy) attempts to deal with Sofia Madison’s (Jackie Zeman) wrath and his shady reputation.
After watching the premiere, Scott Bailey really stood out to us for his performance as the investigative reporter trying to dig at the truth, while getting a dig in on all the shady peeps in Bay City! Now watch Chapter 11 episodes 1 and 2 of The Bay after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of it! Who did you enjoy seeing the most? Did you like the new opening credits? Weigh-in!
