Kendall defends Erica spending the night with David and believes there’s an explanation as to why. Jane/Erica reassures Kendall that nothing is going on between her & David. Kendall suggests she call Jackson to reassure him of her love. Jane takes her advice and suggests to Jackson they go on a casual trip. At the Fusion office Kendall gives Madison some advice on how to present her line and agrees to talk to Greenlee about giving her another chance. Jake shares his frustration with Jesse over the fact David has taken over the hospital but won’t give his nemesis the satisfaction of quitting. When he wonders out loud how one would get away with killing someone Jesse tells Jake there are other ways to get back at David. Jesse feels David’s up to something and asks Jake to be his eyes and ears at the hospital. Jake wonders how Angie feels about all of this. Ryan also plans on finding out what David’s up to before anyone else gets hurt. He tells Jesse about Erica spending the night at David’s and also questions how Jesse could allow David to treat Angie. Jesse explains Angie wants her vision back. He’s doing his best to find out what David’s up to. Ryan updates Kendall on his conversation with Jesse and in talking to her realizes she misses Griffin. Ryan calls the airline and learns Griffin never got on the flight. Greenlee thinks it’s possible that Erica is having an affair with David and feels bad for Jackson. Ryan suggests they go on their honeymoon, and while Greenlee’s touched by the offer, she wants to stay in PV to find out what David is up to first.

Greenlee confronts David and Jackson intervenes and tells David to stay away from his daughter. David runs into Madison and perks up when she mentions Greenlee. She vents regarding Greenlee dismissing her line and David gives her some pointers on how to handle Greenlee. Madison thinks she’d need to be more like David and doesn’t think she can do that. She wonders if David is using her to get under Greenlee’s skin. JR and Amanda both want to know if she’s pregnant with his child. Marissa shows up and JR covers, claiming Amanda is helping him with paperwork. Marissa realizes Amanda looks sick and when Jake shows up and suggests they order some chili fries Amanda runs straight to the bathroom. Marissa tells JR he needs to stop stressing Amanda out about work, not realizing that she might be pregnant with JR’s baby. Marissa’s taken aback when JR suggests they have another baby. Jake takes Amanda to get checked out. Erica takes advantage of the fact her push knocked Jane unconscious and quickly comes up with an escape plan. She changes into Jane’s clothes, puts on her engagement ring and acts like Jane when Ben enters the room. Unfortunately, Jane wakes up and Erica’s busted when Jane trips her up with a question she has no clue the answer to. Erica tells Ben to get a tape recorder because she wants to begin another book about her life.

JR asks Marissa what’s going on. She was into being a couple, came back into his bed but now wants to take it slow. He’s confused while Marissa asks why he’s pushing her. JR wants to know why she doesn’t want to take their relationship to the next level. Before she can answer Bianca shows up and Marissa realizes she’s on a date. JR talks to Bianca who says that Marissa needs to feel wanted and appreciated. He takes her advice and tells Marissa that they should be together but not smother one another. JR admits he had some help in figuring out what she wants. Sienna, Bianca’s date, picks up on the vibe between the two girls and asks how long Marissa’s had a thing for her. She can tell Bianca feels the same and ends their date. JR texts Amanda to find out if she took the pregnancy test and Amanda says the test was negative. In an effort to prove she’s still hot Liza kisses Tad. She explains that she was fired and basically lost her job because she couldn’t get Jesse fired. Liza thinks “Tad the Cad” is now “Tad the Dad”. Tad says he won’t have sex with Liza because he’s a married man.  She goes off to prove she’s not dead yet. Caleb heard Liza got fired and offers her a job. At first Liza declines but later decides to accept. Jake brings Amanda to the hospital and Cara’s the doctor treating her. She wants Amanda to confide in her. Amanda and Jake learn she’s not pregnant, but after Jake leaves, Cara tells her the symptoms she’s having may be from HPV or cervical cancer. Amanda says Cara owes it to her to keep this news from Jake. Jake and Cara talk about her growing relationship with Tad but when Cara watches Jake with Amanda she starts to cry. Tad offers her a handkerchief and she notices lipstick on it. Tad explains what happened with Liza. Cara explains she was crying because she wants Jake and Amanda to be as happy as they are. She’s grateful for all he’s done for her. The two kiss and then Tad asks Cara for a divorce.

Tad tells Cara he wants more than gratitude from his relationship with Cara. He says he tried to fight it but he’s started to feel more for her and thinks things changed once she kissed him and started planning dates. Cara asks who said she didn’t want more. Tad asks if she has feelings for him or if her gratitude is forcing her to try and feel something for him. Ryan and Kendall interrupt Tad and Cara to say that Griffin didn’t get on the plan. Tad says he married Cara to keep her safe and it was a marriage in name only and that’s what it has to get back to. JR reveals to Marissa that Bianca is the one who’s been helping him all along. Scott tells JR that he is restoring the guest house so he can move in. He wants to be close to his family similar to how Adam and Stuart lived there together. Scott tells Marissa he thinks taking JR back would be a mistake. Marissa runs into Bianca at Krystal’s and learns the music box was Bianca’s idea. She wants to know why Bianca helped JR win her back and Bianca admits she did it because she couldn’t. Bianca thinks that for the sake of their friendship they should stay clear of each other for a while. Ryan explains to Kendall that he looked into the manifest because he thought Griffin could help him figure out David’s plan and that’s when he learned Griffin never got on the plane. Ryan wonders if all this has something to do with David. Ryan brings Kendall to her appointment with Griffin’s replacement and as she starts to remember moments with him she begins having heart palpitations. Kendall follows the nurse down the hall and freezes when she sees Griffin.

Bianca is shocked to hear Erica spent the night with David and is tired of her mother doing things to push Jackson away. Kendall tells Ryan that Bianca’s frustration has nothing to do with Erica. Mookie gets a job helping Scoot and tells Maya that he’s staying in PV. He admits he did it to be closer to her. Mookie sneaks up behind Maya and she flinches. Colby tells Frankie that Asher had to take more pain pills after hitting Mookie. Frankie is familiar with pain pill addiction and reminds Asher he can’t take more than prescribed. Asher’s mad at Colby for making it sound like he can’t control himself but back at the mansion he sneaks the bottle out of her purse and pops two pills.

Kendall asks what Griffin’s doing here. When he realizes she’s in a gown, Griffin sweeps Kendall off her feet and takes her back to her cubicle. He keeps things strictly professional and doesn’t reveal that he came back for her. Jake shows up and is thrilled to see Griffin and points out how they hadn’t even gotten a replacement for him yet. Cara’s happy to see her brother and thinks Kendall had something to do with his return. Cara loves her brother and wants him in her life and thinks that she’s not the only one who feels the same way. Ben starts rolling the tape for Erica to begin her new book. She’s calling it Erica Kane Uncensored. Erica finds this more emotionally difficult than she thought it would be. She talks about what a great mother Mona was and what a monster her father was. Even though her father abandoned her she still wants to rescue him. Ben starts to feel for Erica and behind his back she smiles because that’s the exact reaction she was hoping for. Ryan sneaks into David’s office and is caught by Angie. He admits he broke in to find some information on David’s hospital takeover and partnership with Erica. Angie agrees to get information on David’s plans as he treats her. David finds Jane clad in lingerie waiting in his room. He tries to leave for a meeting which upsets Jane and she accuses him of using her. Jane says if he turns his back on her she will destroy him. David puts on a show for Jane and claims he’s “falling” for her. Just as David kisses Jane passionately Jackson shows up, demanding to know what David did to Erica and how did he convince her to work with him all night. David says he thought she went home. After Jackson leaves Jane re-emerges and he suggests she go after him. Jane’s worried that if she’s found out she will go to jail. Kendall’s surprised when Griffin shows up at her house. He admits he came back to town for her.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.

It’s clear she wants a second chance at being Peter’s mother and can’t see past that. With that, the duo is at a crossroads. Finn goes to get his daughter, Violet and packs a bag and moves of their place and heads to the Metro Court for the night.  He tells Anna he has to protect his daughter.  Of course, when they get to the Metro Court, they run into Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Finn is not happy.   Will Anna and Finn reconcile? Will Peter finally, finally get his comeuppance?

Y&R’s Sharon Case Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Standalone, dream or nightmare-centric episodes on your favorite soaps, require the audience to go along for the ride and also require the actor who is featured in it to make the material work – no matter if some of it may come off as cheesy, or may be over-dramatic, or seemingly out there.

On Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, longtime vet, Sharon Case (Sharon) was front and center in an episode that had her in almost every single scene, and performing via clever ways the writing team told the story of a woman preparing for her first round of chemo in her battle with breast cancer.  Throughout the show, Y&R made sure that many key beats of the feelings anyone about to go under this treatment, or anyone about to embark on major surgery, or a potential life-changing moments would feel.   In moment after moment, Sharon Case gave one of the finest performances of her storied Y&R career.

It begins with her beau, Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) trying to be there for her as Sharon kind of skirts the emotional toll of what tomorrow will bring for her, and how she is dreading the entire experience.  When Rey prompts her to talk about what’s in her heart. Sharon’s afraid if she opens up, she’ll scream and won’t be able to stop.  She admits she is terrified but won’t let herself go there.   Not wanting him to touch her or she will break down, Sharon decides to sleep upstairs, while Rey sleeps on the couch.

And that is where the dream begins, as a restless Sharon sees her dead daughter, Cassie, (Camryn Grimes reprises her role) who tells her: “I need you to come with me.”  When she won’t Cassie;s outreached hand, which Sharon believes will lead her to heaven, she runs downstairs to find Rey, but he is gone.  Since this is her dream, she next winds up at Crimson Lights where she learns Rey dumped her and left town for Miami, while Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) scoffs that no one would want to be with her like this!  Next, Nick appears and takes Phylllis out on a date, leaving Sharon upset.

Switch to next scenario: and as Sharon sees doctors beginning surgery on her, and she finds herself in the set of GC Buzz, as her other daughter, Mariah hosts an episode about how Sharon changed after her surgery!  Nick,Phyllis and Rey are it, spouting how negative Sharon was, and how she changed.  Then, Sharon becomes hysterical as she sees herself flatline. She screams at the doctors to not just leave her there … alone!

Next, Sharon shows up at the Grand Phoenix, as none other than Phyllis escorts her to radiation therapy. Mariah (Camryn Grimes). who shows up with a cane for her, brings her a mirror, and as Sharon holds it up, she sees she is wearing a headscarf as she must have lost all of her hair in the chemo.  Faith (Alyia Alyn Lind) runs on to the scene, and Cassie reappears and tells Sharon: “Mom, it’s time. It’s time to go home. Please don’t be afraid.”

Finally, Sharon is in the present and sees that Mariah and Rey are downstairs and she promises to not shut them out.  She tells them about her dream with Cassie and how the cancer has made her feel isolated.   Sharon comes to the conclusion. and promises. she will let the people she loves know that she needs them.  When she reveals she’s hungry, food is whipped up, as Nick and Faith come by to join them.

In the final moments, (grab your hankies), Sharon had a request that her daughters sleep next to her for the night.  We see Faith, and Mariah on each side of Sharon as Cassie watches upon them.

Kudos to Sharon Case for playing the vulnerability of a woman about to undergo chemo, the nuances of every scene she was called on to portray within the dream sequences, and for delivering it in such a way that was respectful, enlightening, and powerful for anyone undergoing something as difficult as this in their own lives.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Sharon Case, this week’s “Power Performance of the Week”.

THE BACHELOR: A Telenovela & Four Contestants Sent Packing

It seems like Peter Weber, our “Bachelor”, finally got a clue, and wasn’t going to continue to be wishy-washy…. or will he fall back into his old ways? Wednesday night brought “Bachelor Nation”, yet another two-hour episode of The Bachelor, following its usual Monday installment.

Picking up in Chile, Victoria P. dug her own grave and was sent to home, after lying about knowing Alayah prior to being on the reality-competition series.  When she goes to talk with Peter about trying to get back on track with him, he lowers the boom on her and says: “I don’t know if I see you as my wife.”  Victoria P. loses it and wants to get in a limo and drive away ASAP.  Once in the car, she looks straight in the camera with tears and mascara dripping down her face.

For Telenovela and soap fans, the episode came with the gals and Peter performing a script to a soap opera, Latin America-style.  Mykenna got the role of the maid, the one who was constantly ignored, but longed for her man. Mykenna said she can play the part, because that is how it feels right now with Peter.  He doesn’t really see her, or spend much time with her versus the other women in the competition.

Later, when alone with the other women in the competition, after previously saying she was ready to walk from the show, Mykenna now said she is having the time of her life. Cue Tammy who stirs up trouble for everyone, by calling people out on things they say or do; whether true or not true. This time Tammy and Mykenna get into a yelling match over Mykenna’s true intentions.  Peter, who is outside with Madison on a one-on-one dare, hears the screaming.  They exit to be alone.

Next, in a twist, Peter invites Tammy and Mykena on a two-on-one date.  After hearing each of their sides of the story, Peter gives the boot to Tammy. Later, in the event that she was lying, he gave Mykenna the boot too!

There was one more contestant that needed to go, so Peter also did not give a rose to Sydney. Remember, she  told Peter how she was bullied and made fun of growing up while in High School, because of her mixed-race background.  This week, photos surfaced of her on social media showing that she was a beauty pageant winner, when she was in High School – thus trying to say she must have been very popular to be saying she was so isolated growing up.

Victoria F. who also went on a one-on-one date with Peter for the second time, still seems confused if she wants to be there.  Peter says he genuinely has feelings for her, but she seems to be acting as if she is not sure. Peter wants to make sure she really wants to be here, when she says she doesn’t like the thought of him with the other women in the competition.  Remember, earlier this week, “Cosmo” revealed they took her and Peter off the digital cover of their magazine, because of former photos of her  modeling for “White Lives Matter”  Fuller said on her Instagram that “The company ‘We Love Marlins’ is in support of catching white, blue & black marlins and releasing them back into the wild,” which is what the “White Lives Matter” slogan meant to her and the company.

So are you glad that Tammy, Mykenna, Sydney and Victora P. all went home? Comment below.
