Angie returns to PV and family and friends throw her a welcome home party. After informing Jake that she might take a longer maternity leave than planned, Angie and Jesse ask Jake and Amanda to be their baby’s godparents. Amanda overhears Tad telling Jake that she needs to grow up. Amanda asks what she can do in order to finally be forgiven. Jake and Amanda both agree that they’d like to get back to the loving couple that they were while Tad and Cara share a close moment as he tries to learn Spanish. Madison admits to Ryan that he’s right; he is the baby’s father. Madison claims she didn’t mean to hurt Ryan by not telling him. Ryan wants to do right by Madison and offers his thanks for her help with Emma. After learning from Madison that Ryan now knows the truth, Scott says he still wants to be involved with her. Greenlee doesn’t tell Ryan that she already knew about the baby and promises to always be there for him. Madison calls Greenlee out on trying to steal her idea for how to fix the unhealthy product problem at Fusion. When Madison claims she feels she’s being taken advantage of, Greenlee caves to the pressure, and not wanting her to feel underappreciated, offers to allow Madison to sit in on a phone meeting with Wall Street analysts and explain her idea. Uncomfortable with Madison’s living conditions, Ryan expresses his feelings. Greenlee tells Ryan that she understands Madison doesn’t have complete say on whether or not he can be near his baby. Erica makes it clear to Caleb that she is committed to Jackson. Their conversation is interrupted when Asher shows up with a delivery from JR. Father and son wind up in an argument over Asher working for JR. Erica insists Caleb must make up with Asher and says that path is through Colby since Asher likes her. Liza continues to try and call Colby but all she gets is her daughter’s voicemail. When she confronts JR he tells her that Colby’s “real family” will help her through these tough times. Erica gives Colby the following advice; own your mistakes and be unafraid of who you are. Ava, the new young, Chandler maid thanks Colby for being herself and admires her honesty, something she wishes she had more of growing up. Colby sends out another video from her webcam about how she will call out the wrong behavior as she sees it in her life.

Kendall, Bianca and Marissa bond over being mothers. After an altercation with JR, Marissa admits to the girls that she’s worried she’s a bad mother. Bianca tells JR to leave Marissa alone. JR tries to get his family back together and tells Marissa how much AJ misses her but she refuses to feel guilty. Amanda confides in JR that things between her and Jake aren’t as great as they used to be. David tells Liza that he will encourage Iris to keep Liza on board as long as she is on his side in helping him get back his medical license. David insists he and Liza must support each other and pulls her into a kiss. A drunken Liza approaches Tad and blurts out to the whole bar that they can judge her all they want but she is who she is. Colby overhears Liza and later uploads a video on Pine Valley’s ‘YouTube’ of Liza’s rant. Learning from Angie that the hospital board doesn’t want Cara, Jake passionately defends her. Jake tells Cara that he got her a job but she must apologize to the parents of the sick child she lashed out on. Jake congratulates Amanda on her new job working with JR. Before heading out of town to try and dig up some more information about Zach’s casino partners Griffin checks Kendall out and deems her healthy. Kendall forces Griffin and Ricky to “make up” after she picks up on some tension between them. Ricky notices Zach’s crumpled letter in Griffin’s bag. Griffin tells a worried Cara that he wouldn’t be able to live with himself if there was a possibility Kendall could get hurt and that’s why he’s searching for more information concerning Zach. Using a cover story, Ricky tries to get information out of Kendall regarding the painkillers coming from Pine Valley. Tad’s upset when Krystal says she is going to move out to avoid putting Cara in danger with immigration and wonders if trying to save Cara is worth the price of losing his girls. After Cara begs Krystal not to leave, Krystal tells Tad his wife changed her mind and they’re not going anywhere. After shoving a man in the park (she realizes he’s not Scott), Annie steals his wallet and keys. Brot alerts Ryan of the incident since it was reported to the cops and Ryan speaks with the man. After Emma calls Madison to tell her that they’re in PV and staying at the man in the park’s room, Madison relays the information to Ryan. Emma escapes after she goes into the bathroom to shower. Ryan finally finds Annie who feels betrayed that he brought Greenlee along. Ryan questions Annie’s mental state when she can’t find Emma. After Madison turns down another living arrangement offer from Ryan she tells Scott she enjoys his company since he doesn’t tell her what to do or try and control her like the other men in her life have done.  Scott kisses Madison.

Kendall covers with Ricky, saying she doesn’t know anything about stolen drugs, then tells Griffin that there are people suspicious of the missing painkillers. Ricky reports back to Diane that he’s planted seeds of doubt about Griffin in Kendall’s mind. Diane gets a call informing her that Griffin wants to meet with her regarding the casino owners. As Griffin gets dressed for his meeting, Kendall shows up and says wherever he’s going she’s coming. Annie almost attacks Greenlee and is restrained by the cops and read her rights. Scott is unsuccessful in calming Annie down and just as she’s about to be sedated JR shows up and asks for a moment alone. After talking with JR, Annie agrees to go with the men (from the hospital) but as she’s being taken away she thinks she’s off to her and JR’s wedding. Ryan meets up with Madison and Scott in the park; after seeing Emma’s stuffed animal he calls out to his daughter and she comes out of hiding. Greenlee shows up with news about Annie and when Emma hears that her mommy is going to the hospital she lashes out, upset she’s going to the very place she’s scared of. Emma tells Ryan she hates him. David tries to reestablish himself in PV. First, Griffin puts in a good word with the medical board, and then David asks JR to do the same.  David wonders when he and Marissa will be able to get to a good place.

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.
