Q.This baf­fles me: Isn’t GH’s Jake older than Joss­lyn? To me, he looks like a very young child, while she looks like a teenager!

A.Your vis­ual anal­y­sis is right on! Nat­u­rally, the an­swer to this goes back to a nasty case of SORAS (soap-opera rapid-ag­ing syn­drome)! Joss was born on screen on Novem­ber 3, 2009 — more than two years af­ter Jake’s birth on May 4, 2007 — but she’s quite a bit older now. Af­ter be­ing be­lieved dead from 2011 to 2015, Jake ul­ti­mately re­turned home alive, well and the right age. Joss­lyn, mean­while, stayed on the can­vas and was aged four times. With 14-year-old Eden McCoy now play­ing the role, Bob­bie re­cently reamed Joss for drink­ing while be­ing “un­der­age by seven years!” That would make the char­ac­ter around 14 years old as well — while Jake’s only 10!

Q.I wish THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’s Rick would have vis­ited his lit­tle sis­ter, Hope, or at least men­tioned her the last time he and Maya trav­eled to Paris. Isn’t she sup­posed to be work­ing over there?

A.To be fair, while soap char­ac­ters do of­ten seem to fall prey to an “out of sight, out of mind” men­tal­ity, Rick might not ac­tu­ally have for­got­ten his sis­ter. It’s just that she is said to be liv­ing in Mi­lan, not work­ing for the Paris di­vi­sion of For­rester! And Brooke, at least, does oc­ca­sion­ally men­tion her ab­sen­tee daugh­ter. She’s even been said to visit Hope on oc­ca­sion.

Wow. Girls re­ally do ma­ture faster than boys.

Those are the looks of peo­ple who are greet­ing Hope with “Hey… you!”
