Greenlee’s sudden return from the dead sends shockwaves through the assembled guests, who soon take their leave with the exception of Ryan.  Ryan’s speechless over Greenlee’s intention to marry David let alone on Valentine’s Day of all days.  Ryan tells Greenlee he never stopped loving her and is dismayed she kept the fact that she survived the accident from him.  Greenlee defends David, insisting he’s the one who’s going to take care of her now.  Jack wants nothing more than to see David behind bars but Jesse points out he hasn’t really committed any crimes.  Annie crashes the now non-wedding and is stunned to see Greenlee. Ryan stuns Greenlee when he suggests they run off and get married right now.  Ryan voices his undying love for Greenlee and pulls her into a passionate kiss which she responds to at first.  Greenlee’s instinct to melt into Ryan’s arms and reunite with the man she truly loves soon disappears as her fury returns and she accuses him of betraying her first with Kendall and then with Erica.  Ryan defends himself to Greenlee, claiming he thought she was dead and never coming back to him but her hurt is too great for her to simply get over.  Ryan’s positive Greenlee still loves him and that he’ll win her back.  David puts the screws to Angie, saying he knows she used the information he gave her to force the head of the janitorial union to call off the proposed strike.  David blackmails Angie into resigning as Chief of Staff.  JR and Marissa get the news that JR needs a bone marrow transplant.  JR rejects Adam’s offer to help but Adam refuses to walk away from his son.  Colby anticipates Annie’s descent back into insanity now that Greenlee has returned. Greenlee insists to David she still wants to marry him but decides it would be better to have a private ceremony the next day with no guests.  Jake refuses to let David get away with blackmailing Angie into resigning.  Tad, Ryan and Jake come up with a plan to get even with David.  To that end, Tad and Jake drag an unconscious David to an undisclosed location.  Greenlee faces off with Erica at Fusion.  Erica becomes incensed when Jack immediately jumps to Greenlee’s defense and tells him this is proof positive why they could never be together again.  Ryan surprises Greenlee at Fusion and carries her away despite her protests.  Pretending to Annie, Colby calls Oak Haven claiming she fears she’s starting to have a breakdown.  Annie starts to panic when Dr. Burke arrives at the mansion but does her best to cover her growing unease.  Annie asks Scott to spend the night.

David awakes handcuffed and bound to a chair in Erica’s new penthouse.  With Erica’s help, Tad and Jake get the tape David was using to blackmail Angie.  Back at the penthouse, Erica tries to convince David to get Greenlee to back off Fusion.  Ryan holds Greenlee against her will in the turret room at the castle where they got married the first time as he tries to get her to admit she still loves him.  Angie’s intent on resigning but Jesse surprises her when he retrieves the letter of resignation she sent to the hospital board.  The tension between Angie and Jesse remains high.  JR’s family starts to be tested as possible bone marrow donors.  Adam’s disappointed when Frankie and Jake inform him he can’t be tested as he wanted to be the one to come through for his son.  Colby’s pleased by Annie’s discomfort over Greenlee’s return, thinking it will surely send Annie back to Oak Haven. Ryan wears Greenlee down with talk of happy memories until she finally admits she does still love him and maybe always will.  Greenlee, however, insists to Ryan they can never get back what they had and it really is over between them.  The stressful situation takes its toll Greenlee, who faints in Ryan’s arms.  Alone with Jake, Greenlee reveals she’s really awake and asks him to help her.  Erica and David engage in a war of words while she holds him captive.  Annie seethes when Adam does as JR demands and sends her home from the hospital.  Scott devastates Annie when he walks away from her.  Annie’s chilled to find a tire iron on the terrace.  JR tells Marissa he wants her to officially adopt Little A.  Per Adam’s instructions, Tad begins searching for a mystery person.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

General Hospital

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
