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.

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?
