(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Eva LaRue and Sarah Michelle Gellar reunited with some of their former co-stars on the set of “All My Children” earlier today. The two beautiful women taped their scenes scheduled to air on Wednesday, September 21. Continue to read to find out who Gellar will be playing. Soap Opera Network also investigated to find out if this episode is it for LaRue.

With scripts reportedly being manipulated due to “AMC” receiving a new lease on life on the internet, it appears to be impacting more than one return to the program. As we reported earlier this week, Julia Barr’s return was cut short. LaRue’s spokesperson tells Soap Opera Network that her appearance with Gellar will indeed be her next and final appearance on the soap on ABC. The actress who last appeared on the soap in July for two episodes was originally slated to air in three more episodes before “AMC” ended its run on ABC on Friday, September 23.

On her official Twitter feed, LaRue describes the scenes with Gellar that she affectionately refers to as cheesy. Paying homage to Gellar’s run on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and possibly to “AMC’s” current bizarre umbrella story that has several character returning from certain death thanks to a miracle drug regime, Sarah will be playing Dr. Maria Santos psychiatric patient. Dr. Santos’ patient insists she’s surrounded by … vampires!

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Less than a week after first breaking the news that Barret Helms had wrapped up filming on “One Life to Live,” Soap Opera Network can now confirm the actor’s final airdate as Tomas Delgado’s (Ted King) long-lost son Baz Moreau.

Helms will last appear as Baz on Tuesday, September 20, exactly three months to the day after he first appeared on the show back on July 20. The actor, who finished taping last month, tweeted on July 21 that he had “just finished one of the craziest 13 week periods of my life!!”

As previously reported, 13 weeks is the length of time since beginning a contract that a soap can drop an actor no matter the initial length of said contract. The actor is not given the same courtesy (they must stay for the full duration).

Fans shouldn’t expect Baz to go out on a quiet note however, as he prepares to leave Llanview to return to Paris to be with his mother. In a tweet on August 22, Helms assured fans that he has “one more really good stint coming up!”

Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Soap Opera Network interview with Helms along with his former “One Life” co-star Nafessa Williams (ex-Deanna Forbes), where the two discuss their experience on the soap and its cancellation and how the series going online may not be such a bad thing for fans.
