Believing Jake and Cara had a one night stand Amanda tells JR she doesn’t think she can get past it. She’s struggling with the fact she isn’t Jake’s first love. JR relates to how she feels and tells her about his problems with Marissa. Krystal tells Marissa she thinks JR has changed. Marissa confides in Bianca about JR and Bianca tells her friend to follow her heart. Marissa apologizes to JR and says that was happened today was not his fault. Jake decides he’s going to tell Amanda what happened between him and Cara. When Amanda returns home he questions where she’s been. Jackson asks “Erica” what David wants from her. Jane/Erica says she just got information from him, nothing more. Jane signs the papers for the purchase of the hospital and Greenlee’s glad she sold it to “Erica.” David tells Jane now that she’s bought the hospital she must find a way to sell it to him. Jane seeks advice from Erica on how to be her. She wants to know how to cope with the pressure and demands put on her by everyone. Erica warns Jane that she is no match for David. She tells Jane she knows about the accident and points out that being her will not take away her pain. Jackson is shocked when Erica/Jane makes an announcement; she and David are now co-owners of the hospital.

“Erica” makes the announcement that David is the perfect partner to help her guide PVH. Jackson wants to look at the contract and find a way to break it but she insists it’s her decision and she doesn’t need his approval. Caleb gets in the mix and Erica/Jane tells both he and Jackson that they either trust her or they don’t. Jake questions Amanda on where she’s been. Tad calls with news of what’s going on with the hospital. Jake’s angry and won’t let David get away with this. Afraid of what Jake’s going to do, Cara heads to the hospital and Griffin agrees to go with her. Jake finds David at the hospital and rejects his peace offering. Jake starts throwing punches just as Cara arrives. Jane joins David for a drink at the Yacht Club. Jackson finds her there and she tells him she didn’t have a drink, just sparkling cider and while he isn’t mad, he’s concerned. Jackson realizes Erica is just “being Erica” and he realized he missed it. Angie tells Frankie it looks like David is his new boss and admits that David is a talented physician. Krystal and Caleb wonder how Jackson could stand by and “let Erica” do such a thing. Krystal’s also taken aback by Angie’s attitude towards the news. Amanda cries on Angie’s shoulder. She knows how hard things have been for the couple and Angie spills the beans on the trip Jake was planning. She encourages Amanda to go and tell her husband that she needs him. Krystal gives Jackson her resignation and thinks it’s best for both of them. Caleb offers her a job with him and she accepts.

Madison tells Ryan she isn’t his problem anymore and he tries to calm her down. Greenlee walks in on the close moment and compliments Madison on her work. She asks Madison to give a presentation. Kendall tells Griffin she has to stop David from taking advantage of Erica. David tells Kendall he won’t hold her shooting him over Erica’s head. While having a drink together at the Yacht Club, Kendall tells Griffin she is going to stop blaming David for everything. David tells Greenlee he bought the hospital to help people and she should be happy because now she’ll have time to focus on her personal life. He points out that his dark side helps him understand her in a way Ryan never will. Cara wants Jake to tell Amanda the truth and tells Tad that she just wants Jake to be happy and Amanda does that for him. Opal tells Cara she has what the family needs and hopes she doesn’t break Tad’s heart. When Marissa tells Bianca she wants to join her on her trip, Bianca says JR planned a trip for him and Marissa to the Grand Canyon and JR plays along.

Colby takes Asher to the Yacht Club and even though it’s closed for a graduation party, they get to hang out until the guests arrive. When Colby starts to sing Asher’s in awe of her voice. Colby admits she’s fantasized about being a singer. When Colby brings back a cupcake for Maya and tells her to kick back and relax with her and Asher, Maya strongly refuses. Angie is determined to get her sight back after David gives her a detailed treatment plan. Jesse’s suspicious of his motives but Angie assures her husband that David will not control her. David tells Angie he wants her back on staff but if she keeps listening to everyone else she’s going to remain blind as a bat. Angie slaps David but decides to start treatment. Angie interviews Maya for a babysitting position. Madison starts off doing excellent during the presentation but freezes in the middle of it when she is bombarded with memories of losing her baby. Greenlee steps in and finishes up and Madison admits she’s not ready to come back to work. Greenlee realizes that everyone at Fusion sees her as the bad guy and when Jackson shows up she seeks comfort from her father. Jackson reminds her that just because Ryan reaches out to others doesn’t mean he’s turning his back on her. Ryan wonders how David pulled off the acquisition of the hospital and he promises David he will figure out what he’s up to. Ryan meets with Jesse and informs him that he overheard a conversation between David and Erica and wonders if he’s somehow connected to Erica’s kidnapping. He’s even considered the possibility that David orchestrated Greenlee’s car wreck. Jesse thinks Ryan’s hunch is worth investigating. Ryan is upfront with Greenlee on what’s going on and promises that David won’t hurt her again. He realizes he’s been so focused on Madison that he’s turned his back on her and he’s sorry. Kendall admits to Griffin that she ran away because she was trying to get away from him. He reminded her of all that she’s survived this past year. While in the park with Griffin, Kendall spots Madison who is disoriented and showing signs of exhaustion. Madison freaks out when Griffin mentions taking her to the hospital but before she can object she faints. Griffin diagnosis Madison right then and there with extreme exhaustion. Kendall promises Madison that she’s going to help her get through this. Griffin tells Kendall she saved Madison.

Greenlee is surprised to find Madison at Kendall’s. She questions if Madison’s faking being ill but Kendall says no way. She tells her friend there’s no reason to worry about Madison trying to get Ryan back. Kendall’s comment strikes a nerve with Greenlee who’s convinced Madison’s just doing this to get Ryan’s attention. Kendall suggests she focus on how lucky she is to have Ryan instead. Madison tells Randi she doesn’t want to take time off because then she’ll be forced to face what happened. Randi relates to Madison and shares her story of a miscarriage. She suggests Madison call Scott but she refuses. While on the trip together Bianca is affected by her feelings for Marissa and says that she can’t do this anymore and plans to tell her why. Jake questions Amanda on what’s wrong. Colby finds Maya in a guest bedroom and Maya covers that she didn’t go home because she wasn’t feeling good. Colby reads the latest vlog on an abusive boyfriend and after Maya questions her on her response, Colby notices bruises on her arm. Maya’s phone rings and she jumps, causing Colby to questions what she’s so afraid of.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sasha and Valentin’s Secret Out Of The Bag: So Where Is Nina’s Real Daughter?

As many had suspected, there was something up in the relationship between Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and relative newbie to Port Charles, Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson).

The young woman who was introduced on the show back in the middle of September, and “turned out” to be Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) biological daughter (the one she gave birth to years ago), is not telling the truth, nor is Valentin,

At the end of Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Sasha is visiting Valentin at Wyndemere, where he tells her he wants her to go back to where she came from, and that if she sticks around, the truth will come out.

A confident Sasha says she won’t blow this and that no one will ever find out that she is not Nina’s daughter.  Thus meaning, Valentin set this whole ruse up to wrangle Nina back into a romance and marriage with him.

But as for Sasha, she clearly is intent on not leaving town, and getting her claws into Griffin (Matt Cohen), even though he is dating her “sister” Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Even Ava (Maura West) is telling Sasha to go after her daughter’s man, because, as we know, Ava is a woman scorned in regard to Griffin. And let’s not forget that Ava and Nina are longtime nemesis, too.  Adding to the confusion and deception are those second DNA results that came back positive to prove to Nina that Sasha is her bio-daughter, but she clearly isn’t.

So now that we know Sasha is a fake, that begs the questions … Is Nina’s daughter even alive?  If she is alive, where is she, and who is she?

Share your thoughts on where, or who Nina’s real daughter is, and what you think of the collision between Valentin and Sasha, via the comment section below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Ashley Leaves For Paris As Eileen Davidson Wraps Her Run

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless marked the final appearance of Eileen Davidson in the role of Ashley Abbott, and the two-time Daytime Emmy winner left on a high note with an emotional storyline that could just earn her yet another gold statuette next year.

As Ashley’s family drama came to its conclusion, she tells Jack (Peter Bergman), Traci (Beth Maitland), Kyle (Michael Mealor) Billy (Jason Thompson) and Abby (Melissa Ordway) that she is taking the patents and leaving Genoa City immediately.  She reveals that while she is completely disgusted with the Abbott clan, she is not leaving out of spite.

Ashley’s decided to start her own company with her own products. … and she will call it “My Beauty” – John’s nickname for her when she was growing up.  Next, she goes toe to toe with her brother Jack. He fires back that Ashley has left Jabot for company after company, time and time again.  Then, there is another flashback to an argument that ensued when they were kids over a mess that was less at the family pool.

Now in the present, defiant and standing up for herself, Ashley says to the group there is no offer from them that she would accept, because she plans to start her own empire in the same city her mother did years ago.  Then, Ashley announces she is leaving for Paris on a jet tonight.  When Jack and Traci bring up leaving Dina (Marla Adams) behind, who is losing her battle with Alzheimer’s, Ashley says she had made peace with her mother and that Dina doesn’t know who she is anymore, so it won’t make a difference to Dina.

Ashley turns to Abby and asks her to join her in Paris, but Abby refuses. They share a tearful hug.  Next, Ashley addresses Billy hoping that their relationship one day can be repaired. Then, an emotional Traci tells her sister that she will always love her unconditionally, but she thinks Ashley’s making the wrong choice.  The sisters share a hug.  When Dina joins everyone, Ashley explains to her mother that she now feels liberated.

Before she leaves, Ashley tells Jack she has nothing to say to him and walks out. Later, Ashley is at the GCAC and gets a call from Neil, and drops the bombshell that she is leaving for Paris tonight and starting her own company, and she wishes they could have seen where their relationship would have gone.

Just then, Jack shows up.  In a heartfelt conversation, he confesses to Ashley that he hates himself for starting this war years ago, and what it’s done to their family.  He confesses that part of the reason the “blood Abbott clause” was added was so he wouldn’t have to compete against his sister.  Jack finally admits that he was jealous of her and her talents!  After apologizing to Ashley, they hug.  Then, we go to a flash back to when they were younger and a young Ashley tells Jack she does not like fighting with him.

Now in the present, with a chance to reconcile with her brother, Ashley doesn’t take it. Instead, she stands up for her decision saying she needs to look out for herself now, first and exits  After all, how many times can she feel less than by her own family?

Davidson’s final moments occurred on the plane taking Ashley to Paris where she toasts her exit from Genoa City and on to her new life, while Jack is devastated looking at the empty Abbott house, with a big question mark for the future of Jabot and with a huge rift with his sister that may never be repaired.

Following the airing of the episode,  some of the cast who shared many scenes over the years with Davidson offered their sentiments on Eileen’s departure from the series, on a post on the official Y&R facebook page.

Marla Adams shared: I love Eileen so much. We’ve had so many wonderful scenes together. When I returned to the show, we did a scene in the Abbott Living Room and at the end of the scene Eileen cried. I knew then that we would make magic together. I will miss her but respect her decision and hope to see her soon.”

Beth Maitland sharedL “From the moment we met on the set these many years ago, we were sisters. Ups and downs, life events and comings and goings, we were always returning to the foundation of those days, and I will forever be blessed by the times I have shared with Eileen.”

So, what did you think about how Ashley left Genoa City?  Did she do the right thing for herself? Will you miss Eileen?

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Abbott Family Drama Leaves Ashley To Make A Game-Changing Decision

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless continued the emotional and riveting Abbott family drama that flashes back to when Ashley, Traci, and Jack were kids, and then to the present day; which illustrates how their relationship as kids forever changed their grown-up paths in business, and with one another.

Last week featured some intricate writing and directing and heart-tugging performances by Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Peter Bergman (Jack), and Beth Maitland (Traci).  As we head into Monday, it will mark the final episode of Davidson as she heads off the canvas and departs the role that she originally became soap-famous for, and has played on and off since 1982.

In story, as we flash back to the Abbott house in the 1970’s, a young Ashley tells John about her science experiment.  She expresses that she thought that if she worked hard and won a ribbon at the science fair that her mother would love her like she has always loved Jack. Unfortunately, Dina had already left them all behind.  Now in the present, Ashley sits with Dina, who is slipping further and further into dementia from her battle with Alzheimer’s for an emotional conversation.  Abby overhears their chat and is moved to tears.  Ashley tells Dina that she thanks her, and how she must have looked out for her when making the legal documents that gave her the patents to Jabot.  Dina can’t recall anything that Ashley is saying.  We go to another flashback, where John has to assure Ashley that her mom didn’t leave the family and all of them behind, because of her.  When young Ashley cries, John promises to always be there for her, but little do they know a young Jack and Traci are overhearing this.  Then, when a young Jack wants to share his feelings with John about how he has been affected by Dina leaving them, John doesn’t let him share his emotions. He instead reminds Jack that he has to be strong for his sisters.

Meanwhile at Jabot, panic is setting in between Jack, Billy, Traci, Abby and Kyle about what this all means for the company if Ashley becomes CEO and has all the patents.  Abby tells the group about how much Ashley has felt unloved over the years. Traci tells everyone that not one of them is living up to the legacy that John Abbott has set, and that not one of them should be running Jabot now.

When Ashley shows up, Jack makes her a very lucrative offer on paper, which Ashley rips up  An upset Ashley throws it back at her brother.  Abby accuses her mom of going against everything John stood for. “Jack started it!” Ashley yells.  Even though the Abbott family tries to reassure Ashley that they love and respect her, (and respect is what she wants from them, and feels she is not getting) she exits needing time to think.  Jack doesn’t know how things got this bad.  Traci explains that Jack was left to hold the family together after Dina ran out on them.  A tearful Traci talks about Jack buying Ashley a cake when she won the science fair. Jack has a flash back to when he and a young Ashley were arguing over who was John’s favorite child  However, Jack worried that John wouldn’t always be around, so he promised that he would be there to help Ashley if she ever needed it.

Later, back at the Abbott home, Traci says she knows how much attention John lavished on Ashley; while Jack had no one to comfort him. Finally, Jack admits he was very jealous of his sisters.  Next, Ashley arrives firmly telling the group that she will not to take a back seat to anyone.  Jack still holds firm about her not being CEO.   Ashley then reveals a bombshell, not only is she turning down their offer, but she is taking the patents with her and leaving the family and the company for good, and plans to leave Genoa City!  Everyone is stunned.

Kudos to magnificent performances by Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman, and to Beth Maitland for delivering the “Power Performance of the Week” and reminding us all while she is still such a valuable asset to The Young and the Restless.

So, what have you thought about how Y&R has told the story of the Abbott children’s past and how it affect the present? What did you think about the performances?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, watch Ashley announce her big decision below.
