Colby and Damon break up. As Liza takes the initiative to be a better mother, Damon tells Tad that PV changed him and it will be hard to leave since there’s really no place like it. Liza tells Erica that she wants to push back the trial because she needs to be there for her daughter.  Erica presses Liza to drop the charges and Liza eventually agrees. Greenlee claims to understand why Ryan needs to go to CA and that there are times when they hold things back to protect one another. After meeting with the FAA guy, Ryan becomes suspicious of his claim that the valve malfunctioned. Greenlee encourages Ryan to forgive himself for Zach’s death. After meeting with Ryan, the FAA employee has a mysterious one way call where he says the case is closed and no one will be looking into it anymore. After Bianca questions Erica on why Caleb’s name isn’t on her wedding list, Kendall finds it odd she wouldn’t invite him. Opal, who’s been eavesdropping, asks Erica when she was going to tell her about the situation with Caleb. Kendall admits to Griffin that she is happy to know David is being transferred to another hospital. He encourages her to go back to sleeping in her and Zach’s bed to get some rest and improve her health. She thinks he might be right that it’s time to go back into her master bedroom. Erica tells an unconscious David that he can’t hurt her or her loved ones anymore. David opens his eyes.  David wakes from his coma and remembers that it was Kendall who shot him. Erica goes to see him and gives him “her version” of what happened but David says he knows it was Kendall, not her. Erica tells Jesse that David’s brain is warped from the coma. During this emotional time Erica leans on Caleb, not Jackson, which makes Jackson uneasy. Kendall is freaked out when she hears that David is awake and Erica tells Bianca that her sister must stay as far away as possible from David. Natalia and Brot’s relationship continues to flourish and they decide to go public. Amanda admits to Griffin that she pretended to be Cara so she could find out about her paperwork status. Griffin tells Cara she can’t be on a case if she isn’t’ objective. 

A stressed out Kendall confronts David who says he knows she tried to murder him.  Griffin defends Kendall against David. In trying to protect her daughter, Erica tells David that Kendall doesn’t remember shooting him. David makes it clear he won’t protect Kendall. When Jesse tries to question him, David says he’s too weak and would like his lawyer. Marissa realizes she must take charge in her relationship with David and makes the announcement that she is David’s lawyer. Jackson becomes upset as Erica grows closer to Caleb. Bianca alerts Erica and Jackson that Kendall isn’t in her room. Erica takes off and tells Jackson she doesn’t need him. As a result, Jackson finds himself confiding in Krystal how things between him and Erica have changed. Ryan proposes to Greenlee and she says yes.  

Krystal isn’t thrilled about Marissa’s decision to represent David but is unsuccessful in talking her out of it. Marissa warns David that he better not manipulate her or try and bend the rules. David says he couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. Ryan and Greenlee go public with their marriage plans. Both Jackson and Erica are happy for them but Erica is concerned how Kendall will take the news. When she does learn of their plans, Kendall acts like she’s fine but Ryan notices she’s hiding her true feelings. Using Kendall’s guilt as blackmail, David tells Erica to get Greenlee to come and see him. Greenlee and David talk about how much has changed between them. Erica goes to Caleb for help with David’s blackmail and Caleb agrees to help her with what she needs. Minister Torres encourages Kendall to get involved in something and suggest Habitat for Humanity. Griffin tells Cara that he’s not the guy for Kendall to reach out to and doesn’t want to get too personal with a patient. Kendall tries to cover her anxiety after Ryan explains his initial concern of foul play in Zach’s plane crash but covers that he’s sure there was none. Scott and Madison grow closer. She comforts him over his frustration at having to take a low-level job at the hospital but she thinks it’s great that he’s seizing an opportunity to rebuild himself.  Scott confronts Greenlee who says it was the best she could do. When Ryan sees Scott with Madison, Scott puts his arm around her.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: J.T. Holds Sharon, Nikki & Victoria Hostage With Dire Consequences For All

While The Young and the Restless left us with a major cliffhanger on Wednesday, and was on yesterday, or today due to the March Madness NCAA College Basketball tournament games, the show provided a sneak clip of a little more of what happened after J.T. passes out from a massive headache, and Sharon (Sharon Case), Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) are feeling the effects of the gas pipe leak leaving all of them passed-out and in peril.

But, what did you think of J.T.’s return thus far … and his trapping the women in the cabin and wanting payback for burying him alive? And … how J.T. revealed how he survived via the Genoa City sewage system?

Clearly, J.T. has something major and medically wrong with him.  Did he get a brain tumor after Nikki clobbered him to the head with a crowbar and from being buried at Chancellor Park?  Could J.T have had a medical issue no one knew about that could have been causing his abusive behavior toward Victoria and Victor and the Newman clan?  So many questions to be answered.

Outside the cabin is Billy(Jason Thompson) a busybody Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), and Victor (Eric Braeden) on his way too! Will they all save the day?

No matter what; Thad Luckinbill (J.T.) delivered another great performance as he finally comes face-to-face with the women that put him six feet under.  When J.T. is on the screen  … everyone takes notice.

Watch the sneak peek clip for next week’s Y&R, and let us know what you thought of Wednesday’s riveting scenes and what you think is wrong with J.T? Comment below

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’ As Ava Learns The Devastating Truth About Ryan

Last week on key episodes of General Hospital, the truth was finally out that Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) was masquerading as his twin brother, Dr. Kevin Collins, and that Ava Jerome (Maura West) was an unsuspecting victim in all of this.  As the week began, Ryan and Ava had gone over the bridge, but Jason (Steve Burton) was able to save Ava and pull her back to the bridge, and that set the stage for a powerhouse series of performances by West.

On the bridge with Laura (Genie Francis), who is trying to make Ava comprehend the harsh realization that she has been with a serial killer this entire time, and not the real Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), Ava doesn’t believe what Laura is attempting to tell her.  She believes that Kevin had a mental breakdown.  Laura explains to Ava that Kevin is at General Hospital, while Ryan has been posing as him.  In Ava’s version of the situation, she thinks the switcheroo happened in the last 48 hours when Ryan wanted to whisk her away to be married.  Laura then tells Ava that Ryan switched places with Kevin months ago, and she has never been with Kevin.

It is a horrifying reality for Ava to grapple with as she insists that Kevin loves her.  However, moment by moment, Ava can no longer deny that harsh truth that is right in front of her.  She had sex with her daughter Kiki’s murderer the night she was killed, and she has been sleeping with the wrong man this entire time.

In heartbreaking scenes, Maura, along with another wonderful performance by GH icon, Genie Francis, illustrated the raw pain and devastation of a woman who has been so blindsided by love, violated, and deceived all at the same time.  The scene where Laura holds Ava on the bridge as she collapses with anguish was soap gold.  But, never underestimate Ava Jerome!  You know she will get her payback.

In another episode, a now drunken Ava heads to the GH to see Kevin for herself, but finds Franco (Roger Howarth).  First, she blames Franco, then he makes her understand that it was Ryan who murdered people and deceived everyone.  He was just helping the PCPD snuff out the serial killer.   She tells Franco that Ryan made her feel like a goddess and that he worshipped her and helped her in her time of need following Kiki’s death.  Ava tells Franco that she hopes Ryan’s still alive so she can kill him herself!

And still in another moment, Ava runs into the real Kevin in the hospital hallway.  Ava loses her grip and slaps him in the face accusing him of killing her daughter.  Scott (Kin Shriner) pulls her off Kevin, and tries to get her to understand that Kevin was in surgery at GH when she was with Ryan in Niagara Falls.

Sitting down with Ava, Kevin apologizes for what Ryan did to her and everyone else.  Kevin thinks she needs to speak with a therapist, but not him and he will recommend someone.  Later, alone in the hospital corridor, Ava sees a poster of Kevin Collins and rips it to shreds as Scott comes by to calm her down. She sinks to the floor in sorrow over Kiki’s death, and how she ended up falling for Ryan.

Scene after scene, moment after moment, you can’t get better than West.  Ava is a delicious complex character, who has been so unlucky at love, is so flawed, and at times so revenge-filled, and yet in the hands of the oh-so-skilled and talented Maura West, she has humanized Ava, so that we can’t help root for her to get back on her feet after she falls so far down, so we can witness what trouble she will stir up next.   All of this to say: Michael Fairman TV names GH’s Maura West the ‘Power Performance of the Week”.

So, what did you think about of Maura’s performances on  GH? Did Ava finding out the truth about Ryan live up to everything you hoped it would be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Is Trapped With A Serial Killer

Ava Jerome (Maura West) got an eyeful on Thursday’s episode of General Hospital when she finds Carly (Laura Wright) gagged and knocked out in the trunk of “Kevin’s” (Jon Lindstrom) car.  Just then, Carly begins to open her eyes, but Ava is stunned when she finds “Kevin” standing behind her.   When Ava is trying to process what she just saw and her groom’s reaction to the sight of Carly in the truck of his car, he tosses it off, and lets her know he has a handle on everything and to go back to their motel room and wait for him.

Later, in their motel room in Niagara falls, Ava considers calling 911, but in that moment decides against, and begins to think that “Kevin” has had a mental breakdown as he has in the past.  When he shows up, “Kevin”asks Ava to trust him,  But when Ava asks why Carly was in the trunk of his car, he responds that it’s a wedding gift for his bride-to-be.

Meanwhile, the manhunt is on for Ryan Chamberlain as the real Kevin Collins has now been admitted to General Hospital.  Chase (Josh Swickard) fills Lulu (Emme Rylan) in on what is going down and she finally remembers it was Ryan, not Franco (Roger Howarth), who stabbed her, and she was his victim when Ryan hypnotized her to believe Franco was the serial killer.

Laura (Genie Francis)is on her way to Niagara Falls with Jason (Steve Burton), who is going to find Carly and bring her home as he is worried sick about his best friend.  Cameron (William Lipton) who is in the Falls with Joss (Eden McCoy)and Oscar (Garren Stitt), who has had a major seizure, runs into Ryan, but doesn’t know it, until he has a phone call with Liz  (Rebecca Herbst) who fills him in that Franco is not the murderer, but Ryan is.  Cameron has the tip to help all, with the name of the motel where Ryan is at.  Liz phones Laura and she and Jason head off to find the motel..

When Jason and Laura arrive at the cabin, Laura stays in the car as Jason grabs his gun and heads to Ryan’s room.   When an unnerved Ava tries to  tell “Kevin” that he must let Carly go and bring her back to Port Charles safely before they get married, he informs  Ava there is nothing for her to worry about.  He has already taken Carly five miles east of the motel.  Next thing you know, the scene transitions to a shot of Carly lifeless on the ground.  We go back to Jason, who kicks down the  door to Ryan’s room with his gun drawn.

So, what did you think of Ava’s reaction to a kidnapped Carly in the trunk of Ryan’s car? What will happen when Ava realizes she is with Ryan Chamberlain? Share your thoughts as this story heads to its major conclusion, or is it?
