Diane uses Spike as an excuse to get Kendall off the yacht and over to his school so Ricky can have time alone to search for the evidence. Ricky claims to be looking for his cell phone when Kendall returns and questions what he’s doing. When Griffin shows up, Ricky overhears him confess to Kendall about the drugs he stole from the hospital and relays to Diane that they now have dirt on Griffin, if necessary. JR lays into Colby for posting a video online after their family has already endured so much scandal but since she’s getting a lot of positive responses online Colby decides to leave it up there. Everyone at Cara’s bridal shower sees the video and Liza leaves to go find her daughter. Tad convinces Jesse that the wedding is genuine and he agrees to be Tad’s best man. Amanda questions Jake on what he plans to do with Cara’s wedding ring now that she’s given it back to him. Jake catches Griffin going through medical supplies but Griffin covers and starts talking about how happy he is to be able to attend his sister’s wedding. JR becomes sentimental and tells Marissa he wishes he could turn back the clock. On a call with Jesse, Angie questions the wedding but all Jesse can say is he’s adopted a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy with Tad. Tad’s affected when Krystal tells him she’s moving out but reassures him that they’ll always put their kids first.  Tad tells Ruth the truth about the wedding. Amanda tells Jake that she can’t go to the wedding because she’s sick but he knows she’s lying. Cara confronts Amanda and lays into her for turning her into the feds. Kendall gives Cara a memento for her wedding. Before the wedding gets under way, Griffin reminds Cara they can leave and hide somewhere else but she insists she wants to stay; she’s never felt so welcome in a town like PV. As Tad and Cara recite their vows, Agent Kaye leaves and sees Amanda drinking alone in the bar.

Friends and family enjoy the wedding, and once it all winds down, the bride and groom head to a hotel to make things look more authentic, especially to the undercover cop watching from outside. In an effort to regain his family, JR asks Marissa to stay the night but she turns him down. It’s only after AJ privately asks Marissa to stay that JR returns to find the family, including his ex, playing games and full of hope he tells the maid it won’t be long now before the house is full again. Upset and alone Amanda opens up to Agent Kaye as he questions her. Jake calls to find out where she is but Amanda tells her husband she needs some time alone as she’s struggling with his feelings for Cara. Scott arranges for Madison to have a sonogram appointment. The two share a moment as they see the baby on the screen and they learn it’s a girl. Desperate to find his daughter, Ryan makes a video in the hopes Annie will see it and realize she has no other option but to return Emma. David continues to offer his help and both Ryan and Greenlee think the sooner he is out of their lives the better. After Greenlee hurts her ankle, Ryan takes her to the hospital where they watch Ryan’s broadcast.  David calls Ryan to let him know he missed a call from Annie but she will be calling back at a certain time.  The three wind up sitting together, waiting for the call. Madison heads to the office with a great idea for Fusion and hopes this will be her big chance to get noticed. Randi must call Greenlee with some bad news; one of their cosmetics is deemed an unhealthy product. Ryan grabs the phone from David and finally talks to his daughter but it sounds as if Emma is reading off a script. Ryan asks Madison to go with him to Boston and Greenlee actually encourages the idea and will even pay Madison for her time off from work. Greenlee reminds Madison that Ryan is too stressed to deal with other things; Madison gets the hint that she shouldn’t bring up the baby. After Scott threatens to have David kicked out of the hospital, David wonders what Greenlee’s motive was in having hired him. Jackson takes Erica to Kendall’s yacht which he just bought from her. Erica gets a call from Caleb regarding business. Erica meets with Caleb and talks about the changes she has for Cortlandt Electronics. Griffin encourages Kendall to inform Brot of the mystery in the letter and the potential murder of Zach. Brot insists she pursue it but there’s not enough information for the police to go on. Upon returning home, Kendall gets the feeling someone was there (Ricky just ran out the back door when she walked in) and remembering Brot’s question earlier on whether someone was stalking her, grabs the poker as someone is about to come through the door.

After having trouble reaching her, Greenlee complains to Kendall about the toxin problem they’re having at Fusion. Kendall tells Griffin he needs to allow her to let go of the whole letter situation and tosses it in the garbage. When the coast is clear Ricky fishes the letter out of the garbage. Ryan takes Madison to the hospital because she’s experienced another sharp stomach pain. At the hospital, Ryan overhears Madison telling the doctor just how far along she is and he figures out he’s the father. Tad and Cara return home to start their “married” life and find Jake and Amanda already there. Jake suggests a job at another hospital but Cara makes it clear she’s happy at PVH. Jake beats around the bush to find out what happened at the hotel with Tad/Cara and covers that he isn’t bothered by it but decides not to stick around for the wedding video.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.

Y&R’s Peter Bergman Reminds Us All Why He is One-of-a-Kind in Memorable Flashback-Driven 30th Anniversary Episode

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless featured the highly-touted and highly-anticipated 30th anniversary show for Peter Bergman.  For three decades, and with three Daytime Emmys for his work, Bergman has made Jack Abbott one of soap operas all-time classic characters.

And, if anybody needed a reminder, or a refresher course of just how good Peter Bergman has been in this role, you needed to look no further than the tremendous flashbacks the producers of the series pulled to punctuated Jack Abbott’s life story since Bergman’s arrival on the scene, replacing Terry Lester in the pivotal role.

What was great about this standalone episode, celebrating a milestone for one of their legacy cast members, was that it did not show the same ole’ same ole’ clips that often can be standard fare in soapland.  Instead, viewers were treated to some of the more heartbreaking moments for Jack, i.e. when he tells Nikki that their son who had died saved another child’s life, and that he got to hold the baby.  Then there was the gut-punch when Jack realizes Phyllis has been sleeping with none other than Nick Newman, and he feels the fool and that she played him.  There is the moment when Jack tells his dying father John, that he will look after the family now, and there is even boardroom corporate drama that back in the day was so exciting to see.  How great were Jess Walton and Bergman together back then as Jill and Jack? And then there is the rivalry of soap rivalries between Victor Newman and Jack Abbott played to the hilt by Eric Braeden and Bergman, respectively.

Watching Bergman’s work in flashbacks would be enough on its own. Now add to that the real-time mature version of Jack, who has realized his many failings and how he would do anything to be CEO of Jabot, including duping his sister, Ashley with the Blood-Abbott clause and more, and you’ve got soap gold.  You definitely needed some hankies for this episode, especially watching the reactions of Bergman acting mostly by himself when going in and out of the flashbacks.  We have often said, no male actor can cry quite like Peter Bergman, and move you to tears.  And in this episode, he did that several times over.

How fitting that Jack was sitting around with his siblings: Traci, Billy, and Ashley as well as his mother, Dina, his son, Kyle and his niece Abby, that brought the episode to its conclusion looking back at the life and times of the Abbott family through Traci’s manuscript that Jack helped write.

In the end, Jack celebrates what being an Abbott means, and remembers those who have passed, and looks forward to new members of the clan to come.
