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.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: What Did You Think of Steffy and Finn’s Highly-Anticipated Reunion?

On Monday and Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) finally was reunited with her husband, Finn (Tanner Novlan).

As the story goes, Steffy has fallen into a deep depression and took off to Monaco.  Set against the backdrop of Monte Carlo, a very much alive Finn searches for her. After some false starts, they see each other for the first time outside a cathedral.  What followed was sweeping epic music, hugs, kisses, and tears as Steffy was trying to comprehend that the man she saw Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) shoot a bullet through never actually died.

Now, where the story gets a bit glossed over is when they get back to the hotel. Finn explains that he wouldn’t have made it, if it wasn’t for his mom, Li (Naomi Matsuda).  Steffy wonders if Li knew Finn was alive, why wouldn’t she tell her?  Finn tells Steffy that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) found them and things went down hill from there, but doesn’t get into any grisly details. When Steffy has some questions, Finn just wants to relish the moment, and promises he will never be apart from her ever again.

Next, Taylor (Krista Allen) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive with the children, Kelly and Hayes, and the Finnegan/Forrester clan are back together again, against all odds, complete with epic music and slo-motion.

Throughout this story arc, kudos has to go to Tanner Novlan. Without his emotional performances and the viewers investing in Finn’s freedom from the hands of Sheila, this would not have played the same.

So, what did you think of the Sinn reunion?  Do you think it holds up with the other classic B&B couple reunions? Did it fall flat in the explanation from Finn to Steffy of where he has been all this time, or do you think the key points were on-point and you were reaching for the hankies, anyways? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first watch the final scene from Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn and Li are Reunited

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, the CBS daytime drama moved the story forward in a major way.

While Finn (Tanner Novlan) was trying to outwit Sheila (Kimberlin Brown), he tells his bio-mom that she can’t keep him prisoner anymore and that he is going to walk out of this situation, and get back to his wife, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and his son, Hayes.

Elsewhere, Li (Naomi Matsuda) has finally been able to put more than two words together, and tells both Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill (Don Diamont) that Finn is alive.  She even details how she signed her son’s death certificate, and secretly whisked him away to a safe place to nurse him back to health and keep him away from Sheila.  Li also recounts to the Spencer men, how Sheila found her with Finn, and how she ultimately lost control of her car and landed in a fiery crash into the water.  Bill puts two and two together, as does Liam, and they realize Li is telling the truth.  Next, Bill asks Li if she knows where Finn and Sheila are, and off they go to save Finn.

Later, Finn has taken out all of his IV’s and such, and begins to walk out of his room and towards the front door, as Sheila watches in desperation. Just then, Bill bursts through the door and sees for himself – Sheila and Finn.  Next, Bill steps out of the way and Li is at the door.  Li and Finn are overcome with emotion as Li runs to her son, and says “Finn! Thank God! Oh my God!” At the same time, Li shoots daggers at Sheila, who begins to hyperventilate.

The loving mother and son are finally reunited, but what will happen next?  All we know is that we watched a hankie-inducing moment in the story played to the hilt by Tanner Novlan and Naomi Matsuda.

Watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

Now weigh-in: What did you think of the performances of Tanner Novlan, Kimberlin Brown, and Naomi Matsuda? Let us know in the comment section.
