Things seem to be getting worse for Erica when a disembodied voice insists she tell Jackson that she doesn’t want to get married. After Jack gets the call from Erica he’s devastated while she’s shaken at having to break his heart. Caleb doesn’t believe what Erica’s told Jack (since in the call she claims it’s because of Caleb) and Opal admits the more she thinks about things the fishier they get. Krystal admits to Angie her feeling for Jack while Angie confesses Jesse hasn’t been himself lately. Marissa offers to help Bianca out with the Miranda situation since she is so stressed out over her mother. JR arrives with AJ and after he compliments her Marissa says she must deal with her feeling and isn’t going to freak out for AJ’s sake. JR thinks Marissa has been more open to him because of Bianca. Kendall talks with Griffin and tells him what’s happened with Erica. Ricky walks in to find Kendall upset and yells at Griffin, assuming he’s the cause. Jesse informs Griffin he is being charged with murder. Ricky yells at the guard he paid for botching up Griffin’s murder. Angie calls Jesse out on acting differently lately and he blames it on the case against Griffin and now Erica’s disappearance. Jesse confides in Brot that Angie can tell he’s not himself and decides he has to pull himself together to be a good father.

Jesse has trouble holding Lucy as he has flashes of his deceased baby. Tad questions him and thinks he’s pushing himself too far. David shows up at Angie’s to tell her about the extensive research regarding her blindness and she asks he stay and read it to her. Jesse kicks David out when he gets home and is upset Angie’s even listening to him. Bianca finds an emotional David in the park and reassures him that Marissa is doing well. Due to the fact the Miranda Center is receiving bad publicity as a result of what’s going on, Griffin decides he must resign. Cara’s upset Griffin’s going to lose his medical license and he tells Jake that whoever is after him made it personal. Jake is unhappy when Tad indirectly tells him to stay away from Cara, insisting he hasn’t done anything wrong. Kendall almost tells Griffin her suspicions about Ricky but changes her mind. Cara tells Kendall to stay away from her brother and takes a shot at Ricky for being so possessive. Kendall is alerted by her description of Ricky. Ricky makes plans for the two of them to start off fresh in a new city.

Tad finally allows Cara to help him with his investigation in to who shot her brother. They spot the man who stabbed Griffin at the bar at Krystal’s and when he leaves the two follow and split up for a better shot at catching him. Cara winds up being ambushed but Tad comes to her rescue. Jesse’s called in and the man is taken to the station. Griffin ID’s the guy as the one who stabbed him but the story’s turned around when the guy acts like he knows Griffin and says he did it to defend Diane. Greenlee seems to be making headway with Emma when she brings her down to Fusion but once she sees a photo of her mom, Emma gets upset and runs towards the elevator unaware that it’s dangerous. Once she’s freed Ryan insists her behavior stop immediately. While he has been trying to do things the “right way”, Scott finds that he isn’t getting the benefit of the doubt after he’s passed up for a job at the hospital. Thinking that honest work isn’t always the best way to go Scott calls JR to discuss opportunities for the both of them. While on a picnic with Ricky, Kendall wonders out loud what kind of person would set up Griffin. When Ricky discusses a conversation that Kendall had with Zach, she questions how he knew that, word for word.  Ricky quickly covers that she told him once after she had too much wine. Ryan and Ricky look through some of evidence of Diane and when Ricky finds a photo where he is clearly in the background he removes it. Needing some time alone, Kendall goes to the yacht where she accidentally discovers the original letter from Zach with the missing page that points the blame at the casino owners should something happen to him.

Erica tries to make a deal with her captor to let her go but gets no response. She tries to bust out but has no success with that either. Kendall tells Ryan that she might have proof Zach was murdered but cannot find Ricky’s name on the payment list for the Casino owners, but she does find Diane’s name. She reveals to Ryan that she suspects Ricky, but isn’t ready to involve the police just yet or falsely accuse anyone. Ricky overhears Tad and Cara talking about Griffin faking a ruptured spleen and he passes what he’s heard on to Liza who demands to see XRAY proof. Cara wants to fake the XRAY but Tad and Griffin make it clear she can’t otherwise she could be deported since it’s a felony. Griffin tells Liza that he is feeling better and she insists he go back to jail. Cara tells Kendall to stay away from her brother, worried he will wind up dead because of her. Kendall is able to convince Cara to help create a diversion from the police and tells Griffin she’s busting him out. Opal tries to reassure Jackson that Erica’s disappearance can be explained. Krystal shows up and Opal tells Caleb to spend more time with her because she is getting too cozy with Jack. Caleb’s not interested though especially since he still has hope things will work out with him and Erica. Krystal consoles Jack and says she is there for him, whenever he needs her.

Cara sets off the fire alarm in an effort to help Griffin escape. When Jesse takes Cara down to the station, Tad claims he was the one who set it off. Jesse thinks he’s lying but there’s nothing he can do about it. Cara breaks down that her brother is gone and Tad comforts her. Ricky tells Ryan that he wishes he could find a way to help Kendall let go of the casino owners/Zach but Ryan makes it clear that won’t happen since he and Kendall will never stop searching. Frankie worries that David might be trying to hurt Angie with his plan to cure her blindness. Angie tells Jesse that David is going to help her and he needs to give it a chance for her sake. Jesse agrees, but insists he’s keeping a close eye on David. After breaking him out of the hospital, Kendall tells Griffin her suspicions about Ricky. Ryan agrees to help them and they make plans to get Griffin out of the country. He doesn’t want to leave but they say their goodbyes. Before he goes Ryan assures Griffin that Kendall won’t be facing Ricky alone. Kendall heads home to prepare for her date with Ricky and finds him sitting on her sofa with the kids.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope To Steffy, “I’m Taking My Daughter & Don’t You Dare Try To Stop Me”

The next key revelation of the baby switch; that devastated the lives of Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton), but gave Steffy a baby to raise and a sister to Kelly, began to unravel on Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

Now that Hope knows for sure that Beth is alive and has been living as “Phoebe” under Steffy’s care, it was time to lower the boom on Steffy.  So, at the cliff house, a distraught Steffy refuses at first to believe the truth.  She says, “That baby can’t be Beth … she’s Phoebe!”

Liam (Scott Clifton) tells Steffy that he and Hope can do whatever genetic testing is necessary to prove it to her, but that it will indeed come back and prove that they are the biological parents to the little girl.   As they explain the events that led to Steffy ‘adopting’ Beth, she learns from Liam and Hope that Dr. Buckingham sold their baby for a gambling debt and how Steffy’s mom, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) was unknowingly buying their baby to give to her.

Hope says she cannot wait to take little Beth home, and how grateful she is that Steffy took such good care of her daughter all of these months.  Then, Steffy blurts out: “You’re not taking my daughter from the only home she’s ever known.  I’m her mommy.”  Steffy tries to use the reasoning that if Hope takes Phoebe away, she will be ripping her from the only home she has ever known.  Hope. who is becoming more frustrated and upset with Steffy says, “Her name is Beth.”  She then informs Steffy that she and Liam will let her help out with the transition.

Steffy starts to have a meltdown as she realizes that the little girl is really Beth.  Next, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive on the scene.  Steffy defies Hope and tells her again, “There’s no way you’re taking my daughter home.”  Brooke reminds her and everyone in the room that there was nothing legal about the adoption, while Ridge tries to make everyone understand how Steffy is also blindsided.  Steffy continues on how she is the only mother Beth knows, and the cliff house as her home.

A steadfast Hope tells Steffy in no uncertain terms she is now with her, her real mother, who she should have been with since the day she was born.  Hope tells Steffy again how grateful she is to her … but she firmly tells her, “I’m taking my daughter, and don’t you dare try to stop me.”  We fade to black.

Last week and this week, the cast involved in the baby switch storylime from: Annika Noelle, Scott Clifton, to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood have delivered strong and memorable performances as the payoff of this story continues.

So, do you hope Hope just walks right on out with Beth?  Do you think Steffy will go so far as to fight for custody? Take off with Beth and runaway? Share your thoughts om what you think will happen next via the comment section below.
