Jesse lets JR off to deal with “internal issues” but makes him promise that he will give a statement. Annie has reached her final breaking point. She smashes a gas pipe and locks Marissa in the attic.  When JR brings up her going to Oak Haven Annie comes clean about locking up Marissa. Marissa struggles to free herself and eventually passes out.  JR knocks on the door and tries to save her. Ryan is shocked to learn Madison is pregnant and Scott covers by saying the child is his.  Ryan tells Greenlee he is fine, he just wants to go on with the wedding and by day’s end they are pronounced husband and wife. Scott covers and acts surprised when Madison tells him that Greenlee knew she was pregnant.  Madison admits she is glad to no longer have to hide her pregnancy. JR rescues Marissa from the attic and when they search Annie’s room at the Yacht Club, Marissa realizes that JR was staying there with her.  He admits to a relationship with Annie and she realizes the lengths he went to in order to get custody.  Marissa’s sick over the fact she believed in him. Annie convinces Emma to leave the wedding with her and claims they are going on an adventure.  David helps her get away and says he will take care of everything.  Ryan freaks out when he realizes his daughter is missing and demands JR tell him where Annie went. Bianca admits to Erica the reason she is pushing her to do something about Jackson before it’s too late is because Reese decided not to get on the plane and come to PV. Erica sees Jackson and Krystal about to share a piece of cake and points out that maybe he didn’t miss her as much as she thought. Liza tries to avoid having a drink with David on Valentine’s Day; he tells her that he’s turned over a new leaf and is no longer holding onto people who don’t love him. Asher tries to pursue Colby but she makes it difficult. Colby approaches Liza about prosecuting Annie and tells her mother that she’s going to see Damon.  Asher overhears and thinks it’s a bad idea.  Liza tells Asher she’s learned to let Colby make her own decisions and thinks this one will fade.

After getting some relationship advice from Kendall, Bianca calls Reese to tell her everything.  She leaves a message and decides if she doesn’t hear back in 24 hours then she knows it’s really over. Cara confronts Griffin about his feelings for Kendall. Griffin tells Kendall to forget about the secret he told her about sending drugs oversees and to just concentrate on recovering. Insecure over Cara and Jake, Amanda questions Jake on what he felt when his ex admitted she still loved him.  Jake reassures Amanda that he only loves her. Cara refuses to take the wedding ring off her neck after Amanda asks her to, claiming it got her through tough times and Amanda’s just going to have to accept that Jake loved another woman. In the hopes of getting closer to his son, Caleb asks Asher to move in with him and out of the Chandler mansion. Asher doesn’t want to leave JR especially after he helped him when needed it most and now he wants to return the favor; JR is family to him. JR tries to apologize to Marissa for everything but she wants him to leave her alone.  Asher offers JR his support. Ryan listens to a message from Annie and Emma and Greenlee comforts her husband who is beside himself. As he tries to deal with Emma’s disappearance, Ryan blames those close to Annie for turning a blind eye to her craziness. Along with Jesse they find Marissa’s car near the woods which Annie took and now abandoned.  After getting a call from Opal about Spike’s concern for his sister, Ryan reassures the boy that Emma has gone on an adventure. Tad informs Jake of the danger Cara faces if she goes back to Doctors without Borders. Amanda calls the immigration department to report possible fraud on Cara’s passport.

Both Griffin and Ricky try to establish a relationship with Kendall while trying to knock down the other.  Ricky consoles Kendall about Emma and they share a kiss. Scott and Madison discuss whether or not he will maintain the lie that he is the father of her baby. Greenlee is grateful to Scott for covering in front of Ryan and he admits that he’s happy to help Madison since he thinks highly of her. In an effort to protect Cara from the dangerous warlords, Tad sets a fake funeral in motion. Both Griffin and Cara agree to the idea and Cara thanks Tad for trying to help her. Amanda admits to Jake that she was upset at Cara for wearing the ring but believes in their love.  After Tad tells Amanda about the funeral plan she tries to tell the USCIS that the passport fraud was a mistake but it’s too late, Cara is taken away by two men in suits which Amanda witnesses from afar. Ricky admits his feelings to Kendall and then insinuates Griffin is keeping her in the hospital longer than necessary. In the park, Diane tells Ricky that he was sent to PV to find out the evidence Zach had on the casino/mob situation not play “footsies” with his wife.  She makes it clear that any risk is too much and makes a veiled threat against Kendall which Ricky will have to implement if the evidence is not found.  Just as Griffin’s about to open up to Kendall she asks him if she can go home already. Ryan continues to look for Emma and combs through security footage with Greenlee by his side.  Jesse gives Ryan a photo of David talking to Annie before she fled. Kendall consoles Bianca when she says that she and Reese are divorcing. Marissa says she will be Bianca’s lawyer but going off her own experience warns her to be prepared for anything from Reese regarding the children.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: What Did You Think of Steffy and Finn’s Highly-Anticipated Reunion?

On Monday and Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) finally was reunited with her husband, Finn (Tanner Novlan).

As the story goes, Steffy has fallen into a deep depression and took off to Monaco.  Set against the backdrop of Monte Carlo, a very much alive Finn searches for her. After some false starts, they see each other for the first time outside a cathedral.  What followed was sweeping epic music, hugs, kisses, and tears as Steffy was trying to comprehend that the man she saw Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) shoot a bullet through never actually died.

Now, where the story gets a bit glossed over is when they get back to the hotel. Finn explains that he wouldn’t have made it, if it wasn’t for his mom, Li (Naomi Matsuda).  Steffy wonders if Li knew Finn was alive, why wouldn’t she tell her?  Finn tells Steffy that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) found them and things went down hill from there, but doesn’t get into any grisly details. When Steffy has some questions, Finn just wants to relish the moment, and promises he will never be apart from her ever again.

Next, Taylor (Krista Allen) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive with the children, Kelly and Hayes, and the Finnegan/Forrester clan are back together again, against all odds, complete with epic music and slo-motion.

Throughout this story arc, kudos has to go to Tanner Novlan. Without his emotional performances and the viewers investing in Finn’s freedom from the hands of Sheila, this would not have played the same.

So, what did you think of the Sinn reunion?  Do you think it holds up with the other classic B&B couple reunions? Did it fall flat in the explanation from Finn to Steffy of where he has been all this time, or do you think the key points were on-point and you were reaching for the hankies, anyways? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first watch the final scene from Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn and Li are Reunited

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, the CBS daytime drama moved the story forward in a major way.

While Finn (Tanner Novlan) was trying to outwit Sheila (Kimberlin Brown), he tells his bio-mom that she can’t keep him prisoner anymore and that he is going to walk out of this situation, and get back to his wife, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and his son, Hayes.

Elsewhere, Li (Naomi Matsuda) has finally been able to put more than two words together, and tells both Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill (Don Diamont) that Finn is alive.  She even details how she signed her son’s death certificate, and secretly whisked him away to a safe place to nurse him back to health and keep him away from Sheila.  Li also recounts to the Spencer men, how Sheila found her with Finn, and how she ultimately lost control of her car and landed in a fiery crash into the water.  Bill puts two and two together, as does Liam, and they realize Li is telling the truth.  Next, Bill asks Li if she knows where Finn and Sheila are, and off they go to save Finn.

Later, Finn has taken out all of his IV’s and such, and begins to walk out of his room and towards the front door, as Sheila watches in desperation. Just then, Bill bursts through the door and sees for himself – Sheila and Finn.  Next, Bill steps out of the way and Li is at the door.  Li and Finn are overcome with emotion as Li runs to her son, and says “Finn! Thank God! Oh my God!” At the same time, Li shoots daggers at Sheila, who begins to hyperventilate.

The loving mother and son are finally reunited, but what will happen next?  All we know is that we watched a hankie-inducing moment in the story played to the hilt by Tanner Novlan and Naomi Matsuda.

Watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

Now weigh-in: What did you think of the performances of Tanner Novlan, Kimberlin Brown, and Naomi Matsuda? Let us know in the comment section.
