JR’s anger towards Annie rises when she insists she’s his bone marrow donor.  Scott calls Adam, who comes to the hospital and confirms Annie’s story.  Alone with Colby, JR tells her he has a plan to get rid of Annie.  Back at the mansion, Brooke tries to talk some sense into Annie as she points out that Annie is her own worst enemy.  Feeling like everyone is always against her, Annie starts packing a suitcase when Adam asks her why she told JR the truth.  Damon becomes defensive when Angie questions him about the bottle of pills that went missing from the meds cart and makes a big show of emptying his pockets to prove he didn’t steal them.  Angie gives Damon the benefit of the doubt but once she’s gone, Damon reveals he did indeed steal the drugs and pops a pill.  Liza asks Tad point blank if he’s breaking up with her and doesn’t like the answer she gets.  Hurt over the breakup, Liza throws Tad’s past in his face.  Liza drowns her sorrows at Confusion where she ends up being charmed by Damon.  Tad sees Liza and Damon together at the bar.  Jesse puts his plan in motion.  David sees a news report on TV saying that Greenlee’s been arrested. Tad hits the roof when he sees Damon drinking with Liza at Confusion and drags him home.  Angie suspects Damon’s on drugs and he admits it’s true.  Tad’s in no mood to forgive Liza, accusing her of being as vindictive as ever by using his son to go after him.  Tad gives Damon a dose of tough love.  Jesse has Greenlee arrested hoping to lure David out of hiding but Jack quickly gets her released.  Greenlee’s surprised to find David waiting for her at Fusion.  David tells Greenlee he’s going to turn himself in to take the heat off her but she refuses to allow him to do so.  Greenlee has David carried back to Adam’s hidden inside a crate.  Brot suggests Natalie go undercover posing as a model for Fusion to get closer to Greenlee.  JR plans on killing Annie with kindness and surprises Marissa when he tells her they’ll be moving into the mansion once he’s released from the hospital.  Adam’s exasperated by Annie’s feelings of insecurity and paranoia.

Annie vents her frustrations over Brooke’s presence in Adam’s life to Liza.  Adam and Annie’s romantic interlude doesn’t go as planned.  Annie seethes when she spots Adam and Brooke in what appears to be an intimate moment.  Adam refuses to allow David to keep hiding out at the mansion.  David admits to Greenlee it’s time he stopped running.  Upset over the thought of losing him, Greenlee wants David to find a way to fight back.  After making his escape from the tunnels, David encounters Liza and suggests they work together.  Natalia’s not happy when Jesse goes along with Brot’s suggestion that she pose as a model at Fusion in an effort to cozy up to Greenlee.  Jesse “fires” Natalia from the police force to make their ruse seem more believable.  Madison’s clearly attracted to Ryan.  Randi warns Ryan to be careful where Madison’s concerned but he doesn’t think there’s anything to worry about.  After encountering Madison later at the casino, however, Ryan begins to wonder about what Randi said.

Adam’s patience wears thin when Annie continues to make everything about her.  Colby overhears Annie leaving a message for Liza telling her to move forward with drawing up divorce papers just in case she needs them.  JR readily goes along with Brooke’s idea of using his ordeal as the basis for an article in Tempo as he privately sees it as a way to further his plot against Annie.  Erica steals Amanda out from under Greenlee during the model auditions for Greenlee’s new Fusion campaign.  While hiding at Liza’s, David learns that Damon is Tad’s son.  After Tad leaves, Liza agrees to represent David and says the first thing he needs to do is turn himself in.  Jack tells Erica he’s decided to stay in Pine Valley JR works to convince Annie he’s had a change of heart about her while being interviewed by Brooke for the Tempo article she’s working on.  Using Annie’s phone, Colby leaves a text message for Liza telling her to send Adam the divorce papers.  Annie knows Colby is up to something.  David balks at Liza’s defense strategy.  Greenlee figures out that David’s at Liza’s and shows up there unaware that Ryan is right on her heels.  Amanda signs the contract to be Erica’s new model at Fusion.

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

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.
