Adam comes upon a zombie-like Annie holding the tire iron and instinctively backs away, uncertain what to think.  Scott’s arrival snaps Annie out of her trance.  Scott later confronts Colby, who finally admits she’s responsible for the stunt but remains unremorseful.  Adam reads Scott, Colby and Annie the riot act after hearing Colby admit her guilt while accusing Scott of still having a thing for Annie.  Liza’s disheartened when Damon tells her that Bailey is staying at her parent’s house with Stuart permanently.  Natalia arrests Damon in connection to the recent string of burglaries.  Jesse convinces Angie they need some time alone and whisks her away to a room at the Yacht Club where they reconnect and make love.   Not wanting to ruin his parent’s time together, Frankie fails to give Angie an urgent message which results in the death of a patient.  Ryan eavesdrops as Greenlee pours her heart out to Jake and is deeply affected by what he hears.  After telling her he’s going to back off, Ryan and Greenlee begin to enjoy being together without feeling any pressure.  Greenlee’s touched when Ryan remembers her birthday and presents her with a cupcake.  Adam tells Tad to speed up the search for Sonia Reyes.  Afraid he won’t be around for Little A’s upcoming sixth birthday, JR suggests they celebrate early.  Little A thinks he needs a more grown up name now and everyone decides to start calling him AJ.  JR asks Tad to always play a role in AJ’s life the same way he did for him when he was growing up.  Tad catches JR when he collapses.  Tad tells Adam he tracked down Sonia Reyes’ son, Miguel, who’s agreed to have his DNA sent from California to be tested.  Angie realizes that Frankie deliberately didn’t give her the message about the patient who could have been saved because he didn’t want to interrupt her time alone with Jesse.  Frankie insists on taking full responsibility for the incident but Angie puts her foot down, saying she’ll handle it her way.  Frustrated, Frankie slams his fist into a wall, reinjuring his hand.  Annie suggests that Adam name her the new Editor-in-Chief at Tempo and he agrees to think about it.  Annie’s surprised when Brooke arrives at the mansion.  Erica’s confident she has David right where she wants him when she orchestrates it so that he dismisses Gayle as meaning nothing to him while a hidden Gayle listens.  Gayle wants to make David pay for what he’s done and Erica promises they’ll do just that.  Erica lays it out for David, telling him she wants him to marry Greenlee, get her out of town and away from Fusion or else.

Feeling threatened, Annie lies and tells Brooke that the Editor-in-Chief position at Tempo has already been filled, by none other than Annie herself.  After reuniting with Scott and Colby, Brooke heads off to the hospital with them when they get word about JR, leaving Annie out of the loop once again.  JR’s in bad shape but does his best to rally.  Tad and Adam are thrilled to see Brooke.  Tad later announces they found a match for JR.  Ryan lets Greenlee go but remains confident they’ll get back together one day.  Erica seethes when she reads Greenlee’s memo ousting her from Fusion effective immediately.  Erica digs in her heels and tells Jack she has no intention of walking away from the company and handing it back to Greenlee.  Greenlee explains to David why it’s so important to her that they get married.  David and Greenlee’s wedding gets underway.

Damon apologizes to Liza for committing the burglaries and lying to her.  Liza promises to stand by Damon at his trial for Stuart’s sake.  JR’s family celebrates the fact a donor has been found.  Adam explains that he had a one night stand many years ago that resulted in the woman having a son but she didn’t tell him and when he finally did learn what happened, the woman didn’t want Adam to have any contact with the boy.  Adam anticipates the arrival of Miguel, his son and JR’s half-brother.  Erica clashes with Greenlee when she interrupts her and David’s wedding.  Greenlee warns Erica she’ll never get her hands on Fusion.  Jack is unsuccessful in getting Greenlee to call off the wedding.  Erica reminds David of their deal.  David and Greenlee are pronounced husband and wife.  Gayle slips away from Erica.  Adam’s inclined to name Brooke Editor-in-Chief at Tempo and considers having Annie work with her.                

Greenlee suspects something is going on between David and Erica.  David admits to Greenlee that he teamed up with Erica to try and take Fusion from her.  David insists to Greenlee they they’ll work together to double-cross Erica, which she overhears.  Erica is anxious to find Gayle.  Jake and Ryan think they can use Gayle to destroy David and track her down as she’s about to leave town.  Ryan shows up at Erica’s door when Gayle reveals Erica’s the one who brought her to town in the first place.  Jake has Gayle hidden away in the turret room and is surprised when Greenlee shows up.  Everyone’s vastly disappointed when Miguel fails to show up in Pine Valley.  JR’s condition takes a turn for the worse.  Annie’s jealous of the easy rapport between Brooke and Adam.

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.
