Bad karma seems to be all around Jackson & Erica but they decide to ignore it. After Asher smashes the computer of some guy hitting on Colby, he’s taken down to the station. With some “help” from Caleb the kids chose not to press charges against Asher. Asher figures out that even though Caleb wasn’t invited to the wedding he was planning on going down to St. Bart’s to tell Erica how he feels. Kendall explains about the drugs to Jesse and Griffin requests a lawyer. Griffin tells Kendall that he never trusted anyone with something so personal and realizes now that doing so was a mistake. Kendall opens up to Ricky and hopes he will be able to help her figure things out. Playing the part wonderfully, Ricky calms her down and says not to worry; it’s his personal mission to make sure she relaxes for Erica’s wedding. Griffin tells Jesse that whoever set him up has done a great job since he’s got everyone fooled.  Maya wants a job at the Chandler mansion. JR tells her that once she gets herself checked out (since she just passed out) he will hire her. Maya meets with Frankie and tells him that she recently gave birth but had to give the baby away. She gets a clean bill of health and JR says she can start the next morning. Asher denies to JR that he wanted Maya to get a job at the mansion so he could hook up with her. Iris comes down hard on Jesse and insists he treat Griffin like a normal suspect. Angie encourages Jesse not to quit his job. Jesse says he wants to stay home just a little longer, claiming he wants to be with his daughter and the woman he loves.   Jackson thanks Ricky for all his help and says he feels like Ricky’s already part of the family. Kendall encourages Erica to talk to Ricky when she notices her mother’s reservations about the wedding. Caleb leaves Erica a message, claiming he needs to talk to her and will be arriving shortly. Erica deletes Caleb’s message after only listening to it briefly and tells Jack she can’t wait for their big day.

In an effort to get his family back together, JR gives Marissa the chip from the AA meeting since he couldn’t have been sober without her and she tells him that Reese agreed to full custody. Krystal’s upset when Jackson tells her the wedding is still on and admits to Tad that she does have feelings for Jack. Marissa asks Krystal about the wedding location and invites her to travel down to St. Bart’s to share the good news with Bianca and enjoy themselves. Caleb declares his love and asks Erica to take a chance with him. Cara ignores Griffin’s request for her to stay away from the bail hearing because of the danger and insists she will stand by him. He then asks Tad to keep Cara away from helping find out who framed him because it’s dangerous and Tad agrees. The bail hearing doesn’t go well and Griffin continues to worry about Kendall. Ricky works to get Kendall’s mind off Griffin. Ricky admits to Jackson that he has feelings for Kendall. Ricky gets a call that Griffin’s bail was denied and tells the mysterious person on the other line to kill Griffin in his jail cell.  Caleb makes his case to Erica on why she should go with him, and then waits at the airport hoping she will show. A torn Erica remembers times between her and Caleb and her and Jackson. Erica arrives for the rehearsal and sees Jack at the altar but before she can do anything someone puts a cloth over her mouth and she passes out. No one sees what happened and when she doesn’t show Kendall and Bianca go off looking for her. Opal tells Jack she might not have showed up because of Caleb. The tension between Emma and Greenlee continues as Emma decides she no longer wants to go to the ocean now that she hears Greenlee is going too. Jack advises his daughter not to give up on Emma. Ricky tells Kendall that Griffin wouldn’t have been denied bail if there wasn’t a strong case against him and assures her that she wasn’t wrong for ratting him out. Tad questions Liza on the real reason she won’t help him with an appeal for Griffin. Griffin is stabbed in the back and Cara watches as he collapses. Bianca’s grateful Marissa came to St. Bart’s to tell her the good news about Reese. Marissa admits that she kissed JR but doesn’t want to have feelings for him.

Jack thinks Erica was captured and goes off to look for her. Both Kendall and Bianca defend their mother and know she wouldn’t run off without a reason. When arriving at Krystal’s, Jackson sees Caleb who claims he doesn’t know where Erica is since he assumed she didn’t chose him when she didn’t show up at the airport. Kendall and Greenlee argue over the situation with their parents. Ricky consoles Kendall when she confides that maybe Greenlee was right that she gave up on Greenlee when she returned to town, maybe she’s doing the same thing to Griffin. Upon learning that Erica is not with Caleb, Kendall worries that the casino owners might have something to do with her disappearance. Kendall makes the decision to go back to PV to talk to Griffin after learning he was stabbed. Ricky will go with her while Bianca plans to stay behind in case Erica shows up. As Greenlee talks to Ryan about Erica being an evil stepmother, Emma claims now she knows how she feels. Erica is being held against her will and demands to know who kidnapped her. As Jake and Cara work to help Griffin, Amanda notices the closeness between them. Amanda shares her frustration about Jake and Cara with Tad and while he denies her paranoia, it’s obvious he’s a little bit unnerved as well. Amanda tells Jake the Castillo’s might get him into trouble.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke is “Slap” Happy … And Don’t We Love It?

Several characters are pushing the buttons of Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) these days on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and in return for their nasty remarks and machinations they have pulled, they have been on the receiving end of a wallop when Brooke’s hand meets their face!

First, there was Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), who was on the receiving end of bitch-slap from Brooke.  Now on Friday’s episode, it was another showdown – Shauna (Denise Richards) vs. Brooke.

Now that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is looking to move in with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for awhile to give space for him and Brooke to hopefully repair their strained relationship, Brooke shows up at Shauna’s.  Then, the gloves come off, and Brooke wants to know what happened the night Shauna spent with a drunken Ridge.  Shauna tells Brooke that she just made sure that her hubby was alright.  Brooke questions Shauna about not calling her to pick up Ridge. Shauna reminds Brooke that she told her off shortly before that night.

Then, Brooke channels her late mother-in-law, Stephanie Forrester and calls Shauna, “A slut from the desert.”   Shauna bites back saying that she is not the only slut, after all, Brooke slept with all the Forrester men and that Deacon, Hope’s father, was actually her son-in-law!

That was enough for Brooke to slap Shauna, and she really hit her target … so much so … that during the scene, Denise Richards’ earring came off!  During the slap, Brooke warns Shauna to stay away from Ridge with the following words : “He knows you’re trash. Do you understand me?”

Seems to us that Thomas and Shauna might be the next duo to conspire to destroy Ridge and Brooke from ever reconciling.

So, are you loving that Brooke is laying the smackdown on all those who wronged her and her family?  Do you think Thomas and Shauna might end up in an unholy alliance? Comment below.   But first, watch this soapalicious scene featuring Katherine Kelly Lang and Denise Richards.
