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.

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.

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.
