Janet gets the news that her father has died.  She goes with Jack to see him in the morgue.  Dusty tries to explain but Janet doesn’t want to hear it right now.  Jack consoles her at EOD.  Craig is sorry he ever got involved with Rosanna again, because then maybe he and Carly would still be together and she’d have a man who could be totally committed to her.  They get massages.  At EOD, Carly goes to the police station to see Jack consoling Janet.  Gabriel and Craig are talking about fathers and sons and Gabriel burns his hand on the soldering iron.  Carly insists he go to the hospital, where Liberty is waiting to see her doctor with Faith and Parker (Janet has gone to hear about Rocco).  Surrounded by her friends, Liberty hears the good news that her cancer is in retreat.  Everyone’s thrilled, but Parker is jealous, or at least put off, when Liberty hugs Gabriel.  Gabriel shows them all his sports car and tosses Liberty the keys.  At EOD, she doesn’t want to go home right away.  Parker wants to stop having a card attached to his account, so he’s not tempted to irrationally spend money like Gabriel. Craig, who needs his card to continue withdrawing from the account, convinces him otherwise. Parker’s suspicious but goes. At Milltown, Parker finds Carly visibly affected that Jack’s spending all his time with Janet. Parker finds Liberty with Gabriel and even though Gabriel makes fun of him, Parker convinces Liberty to leave with him. He tells her Rocco’s died and they go to Metro so she can be with Janet and Teri. Janet’s thrilled to hear that Liberty no longer needs chemo. Teri gently urges Janet not to turn to Jack, who left her once, but to Dusty. Liberty agrees and texts Dusty to meet them at Fashions. Janet’s surprised to see Dusty but acknowledges that she overreacted. Dusty asks her to forgive him, but Janet can’t deal with stubborn men. Dusty’s heartbroken and asks Craig if he can spend some time with Johnny. Craig unsympathetically tells Dusty he’ll never be with Janet and Carly walks in on them about to fight. Carly accuses Craig of provoking Dusty, just so Janet will never take him back, and Jack will have to care for Janet, leaving Carly left behind for Craig. Craig doesn’t deny it. He tells Carly he’ll be there for her when she doesn’t get what she needs from Jack. Jack, much to Carly’s disappointment, will go to the funeral with Janet. Dusty and Carly sadly watch Jack and Janet leave. Craig returns to his room with Johnny only to find Gabriel moving in next door. Janet, Jack, Teri and Liberty arrive at the Ciccone house for Rocco’s wake and funeral. Eddie and Aunt Marie, Janet’s brother and Aunt, aren’t the most welcoming of guest. Jack defends Janet. Teri tries to help Liberty understand why their family is so judgmental and old-school. Liberty can’t take Aunt Marie’s insulting way of talking to her and she tells Gabriel and Parker as much when they call her. Carly and Parker consider going to the funeral to be with Jack and Liberty, but they talk each other out of it. Craig encourages Carly to focus on work, and pitches a perfume line for Monte Carlo. Carly goes to work on it. Craig calls Ellis, desperate to know how much money is left in Parker’s trust fund. An assistant in Ellis’ office informs Craig that Ellis has cleaned out his desk and disappeared. Craig’s pole-axed. Meanwhile, back at the Ciccone house, Gabriel arrives, much to Liberty’s surprise, and tells her he charted a plane to fly her home whenever she likes.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin's World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Ridge has had it, and in no uncertain terms, smashes the iPad in defiance of the memories he shared with Brooke , and then after Bill opens his mouth to try to explain how Brooke needed comforting over Thomas (Matt Atkinson), especially since Ridge never believed her about his son, Ridge then hauls off and punches the guy.

Katie can’t believe it either!  She thought this was buried once and for all between them, but then she realizes she feels once again gullible to her sister’s seemingly endless attraction to the man she loves, Bill!

Quinn is loving every minute of this, and meanwhile at Shauna’s, Flo (Katrina Bowden) and Shauna (Denise Richards) are discussing why Shauna is leaving town, which stems from her loving Ridge, and not being able to be with him; even though she knows that Brooke’s world can come tumbling down with that videotape of that kiss with Bill.  Might she still have her shot at love with Ridge?

Back at the party, Brooke tries to explain to all and mostly to Ridge and Katie, how the kiss happened, and how it did not mean anything, and that she was in a vulnerable place after Thomas had just left.  So, Bill came in to comfort her.  But no matter how hard she tried, and through her tears and through her pleas that she loves Ridge and her sister, Ridge is  now ready to walk out on Brooke for good, and Katie is disgusted.

In this episode, B&B stalwart, Katherine Kelly Lang delivered a great performance of a woman who knows she did wrong, tries to explain it away and rationalize what happened; when nothing good could possibly come out of it for her.  Open, vulnerable, honest Brooke lays it all on the line, but who is going to easily forgive her for this?

After the episode aired, B&B and CBS Daytime released the promo for next week’s episodes, which show that Ridge does wind up at Shauna’s. (Check it out below) Now, what will happen between them and is Bridge finally over?
