Liza shows Erica a security camera snapshot of Kendall with a pillow near David’s face. After overhearing Liza insist she will use the photo in court and put Kendall on trial, Jackson makes it clear that the evidence is inadmissible. Jackson vents his frustration to Erica over not knowing about Kendall’s incident. Caleb gets help from Asher & Bianca when he asks them to reenact the Ryan and David fight. Caleb realizes Erica didn’t have an angle to shoot from and confronts her with his theory that Kendall was the one who shot David. Erica tries to deny it but finally admits it’s true.  She details what happened and how she covered for Kendall.  She also points out that Kendall hasn’t said anything because she doesn’t remember what she did. Erica and Caleb kiss. Erica reflects on the year 2010 through a letter to her mother. Kendall bursts into a coughing fit and winds up falling into Caleb’s arms, unconscious.  Rushed to the hospital, Erica learns Kendall has pneumonia & must be monitored carefully due to the fact she’s had a heart transplant. Caleb’s a little thrown off his kiss with Erica but promises to keep that, along with the secret that Kendall shot David between them. Annie’s insecurity over her relationship with JR continues to escalate. JR assures Annie that as soon as it’s possible they will go public with their relationship.  Annie silently tells herself that her New Year’s resolution is to never be “the other woman” ever again. Caleb toasts to JR, Asher, and himself that they all have a better 2011. Madison changes her mind about taking Greenlee up on her offer of a new start in New York.  Kendall and Griffin grow closer and he urges her to take better care of herself. In an effort to keep up her spirits, Ryan and Madison arrange for Spike and Ian to visit. Greenlee continues to worry about Madison’s pregnancy and how it’s going to affect her relationship with Ryan.  Frankie tells Greenlee he knows what her real motives are and later advises Madison to watch her back when it comes to Greenlee. Greenlee tells Griffin she has the perfect friend for him. Watching Ryan and Madison interacting with Kendall and the kids really worries Greenlee but she denies it when Griffin calls her out. JR admits to Marissa that he interrogated Scott because he was concerned his cousin conned her into representing him. Distrustful of JR, Scott warns Ryan that his cousin plans to make a move on Cambias. Ryan tells JR he better treat Annie right because he doesn’t want to see her snap like she once did with him. Annie tells JR that she’s sick in the hopes he will come and take care of her.

Kendall continues to feel threatened by David despite the fact he is still in a coma. Damon tries to mend Colby’s strained relationship with her mother. Colby blames her childhood absence of a father on Liza. Asher gets Colby to open up and she admits she’s not sure if she believes Liza’s accusations of her father not loving her are true. Asher can’t imagine anyone not loving her and Damon arrives just in time to see them kissing. As Marissa and JR grow closer, he and Annie become more distant. Marissa warns Annie not to jeopardize JR’s health if she is sick. When JR goes for his health check-up Marissa accompanies him and JR admits that with her support he can get through anything.  When the doctor says he’s cancer-free, Marissa and JR embrace which Annie oversees. Caleb is affected by his feelings for Erica but assures her that he is comfortable in continuing to work with her and understands she is marrying Jack. Caleb tells Liza that he and his client (Erica) will take the lesser charge. After turning him down, Caleb suggests she reconsider. Both Marissa and Annie start to question the other’s relationship with JR as he tries to keep them both happy. After learning that Ryan warned JR about her “spinning out of control”, Annie tells Ryan not to screw up her relationship. Damon is devastated to see Colby and Asher kissing. JR tries to comfort Colby after her breakup with Damon. Damon reveals to Liza what happened and that he and Colby are over. Damon and Liza kiss. Erica worries that Kendall might remember shooting David and Ryan calms her down. Erica convinces Kendall that her anxiety over David is due to the medicine and she doesn’t need to keep thinking of the pillow accident since no crime was actually committed. Liza questions Erica on why she’s in David room. Erica rips into her, insisting that Liza is just jealous of Erica’s personal and professional success, something that Liza is lacking in both regards. As Erica and Jackson look at an unconscious David, Erica doesn’t really care if he comes out of the coma. When they leave, David lips move and he mutters Kendall’s name.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Has a Comeback, Kaitlyn Bristowe Overcomes Injury, One Couple Is Eliminated

On Tuesday evenings second night of competition in the new season of Dancing with the Stars, three former soap stars took to the ballroom dance floor in a night which also featured for the first time this season … the viewers vote counting for 50% of the total score, and one couple being sent home.

The “drama” of the episode was if former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe’s ankle would be OK enough for her to dance her routine.  With her being placed at the end of the show and then “wowing” everyone – it was hard to know how bad the injury was, but, as she detailed on the show she did receive a cortisone shot before performing and changed shoes to help her get through.

Meanwhile, Chrishell Stause, the former AMC, DAYS and Y&R star, currently on the reality hit, Selling Sunset, showed improvement, while ex- Passions, Desperate Housewives and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe continued to bring the heat – although the judges want him to dance with less use of his facial expressions – and Daytime Emmy winner Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marley, AW)  continued to be having the time of her life from her performances.

Here’a what went down…

Kaitlyn Bristowe and partner Artem Chigvintsev (Foxtrot): Performing to Leann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” and with the uncertainty of if she would dance at all, Bristowe, who wanted to be a dancer, got major kudos from the judges for her dramatic lines and moves fluidly through the dance floor and closed the night – combined total score of last week and this week 42 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Anne Heche and partner Keo Mostepe (Foxtrot): Performing to One Republic’s “Counting Stars”,  Heche revealed this was one of her favorite songs, and she also revealed this dance was to honor her two sons.  Although the judges did not feel Heche delivered as strongly with this performance than in the season opener, Anne still looked like she was enjoying every second of being on the floor – combined total score 36 out of 60

Chrishell Stause and partner Gleb Savchenko (Rumba):  Stause showed her vulnerability including sharing a story from her childhood past.  Then then duo danced to “This Is Me” from the Greatest Showman.  During the performance, Stause looked more fluid on the floor than the previous week and was praised for her improvement  – Combined total score 31 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Jesse Metcalfe and partner Sharna Burgess (Foxtror): This duo performed to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and played up their chemistry on the floor. The critique from the judges had more to do with Jesse not looking so intense, and also his posture, but all told they did well – Combined score was 38 out of 60.

Now to the first elimination:  Carole Baskin and Charles Oakley were the celebrities in the bottom two.   It was up to the judges to decide which celebrity would be saved.  Bruno picked Charles, but Carrie Ann picked Carole, leaving Derek to cast the deciding vote … and he saved Carole.

So what did you think of how Chrishell, Anne and Jesse did on last night’s DWTS?  Did the right celeb get sent packing? What did you think of Kaitlyn’s dance and ankle injury? Comment below, but first check out their dances.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Steffy vs. Liam Opioid Showdown

Things have gone off the rails for Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) now that she is addicted to painkillers, scoring drugs from places other than a prescription from the good doc, Finn (Tanner Novlan), who also has the hots for his favorite patient.

Enter Liam (Scott Clifton), who has flip-flopped so many times between Steffy and Hope (Annika Noelle) and who is the person who finds Steffy knocked out on her couch, while their daughter is not being attended to.

Now after finding pills that Steffy had tucked away in her couch, Liam goes on the offense and confronts Steffy who is pretending she no longer needs opioids to cope with her physical pain – but as we realize it’s also the emotional pain she has been in for months that have also brought her to this point,

When Liam wants her to admit she has a drug problem,  Steffy fires back “How dare you?” and mocks him over his “over-bearing” concern for her.  He then presents this “holier than thou” attitude where he tells her that he is not cool about Finn being involved with her when he is her doctor.

However, when Liam is confused to hear from Steffy that Finn doesn’t know about the pill bottle he has now in his possession, that is when she cries and admits she is still taking pills.  Steffy then counters that Liam does not understand – that he left her and their daughter, Kelly for Hope – and that she is all alone.  She goes on to say Finn has been there for her, like nobody else has been.

In the end, left with no choice, Liam tells Steffy he is leaving and taking their daughter with him, which leaves Steffy wrecked.  Will she try to stop Liam from taking their daughter?

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood delivered another one of her top-notch performances in today’s episode as well.

So, what did you think of the Liam and Steffy scenes on Tuesday’s episode of B&B? Comment below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
