Meg breaks into Lily’s house and threatens her with a shard of glass.  Damian bursts in and Lily elbows Meg, but gets cut in the process. Meg is taken away to Deerbrook.  Meg calls Paul, who’s on his way to consult with a fertility specialist about Mick’s treatments. She tells him that she needs him. Paul calls Emily and tells her they’ll have to postpone the treatment. Mick, who was about to knock Paul out again, is pleased the treatment consult must be delayed. Meg tells Paul he must help her escape from Deerbrook. Paul promises to help her. Later he promises Emily that he won’t bring drama into their lives by helping Meg. Craig and Rosanna want to get a marriage license, but need an eye witness.  They call Carly & Jack, who offer to do the job.  Carly and Molly join Rosanna at Metro for her bachelorette party Molly presses Carly about whether or not she’s comfortable with Rosanna marrying Craig. Carly would keep her mouth shut, but Janet gets on her nerves too and she defensively lashes out at both Janet and Ro. Carly apologizes and makes a toast and everyone scatters. Jack turns up at Metro to ask Janet to be his date at Craig and Ro’s wedding. She hesitatingly accepts. In Old Town, Molly tells Ro she can back out of the wedding at any time. Ro knows Craig isn’t perfect, but she insists they’re going into this marriage with their eyes wide open. Meanwhile, at Milltown, Craig turns up, drunk, and asks Carly if he’s good enough for Ro. Carly tries to comfort Craig but he won’t hear of it, admitting that he can’t possibly be a good partner for Ro when all he can think about is Carly. Craig’s still trying to convince Carly to sleep with him when Jack walks in. Craig leaves, but Jack gets the fact that Craig wanted to sleep with Carly out of her. Rosanna dreams of the “accident” – when Craig forced her off the road and into her coma. She attempts to steel her convictions (that Craig has changed for the better) for the wedding. Meanwhile, Carly, still wary about Craig’s intentions, goes to him at the Lakeview and throws herself on him. Craig would respond, but at the last moment he calls it off, citing his love for Rosanna.  At the Courthouse, everyone is almost ready for the ceremony, when Rosanna catches Craig and Carly caught up in a warm moment.  Rosanna sees Carly pinning on Craig’s boutonniere, and sees the way they look at each other.  At the wedding, Craig expresses his love for Rosanna, but Rosanna changes her mind.  She just can’t marry him, because she says he’s never looked at her the way he looked at Carly.  Craig and Rosanna discuss their relationship.  Craig essentially apologizes for having run Rosanna off the road all those years ago.  Rosanna appreciates it and she’s now free to leave town.  She’s going to Germany to run a motor company.

Brad has fun living again, in Henry’s body.  Katie thinks there’s a chance Brad’s made contact through Henry, and so she decides to go up to Henry and kiss him.  At the time she makes her move Brad has left Henry’s body at that point.  Later, Katie and Simon go for a walk away from Brad’s grave as Brad waches, feeling her slipping away.  Katie brings in a real estate agent, Dina, to look at her house to sell it.  Brad causes a ruckus, moving things around, and Dina rushes out, frightened.  Later, Katie wants to talk to Brad.  Jack wants the same, visiting Brad’s grave, wondering why for all the haunting Brad’s been doing, he hasn’t come to see his brother. Barbara and Emily continue their treatments with Mick. Alison and Paul continue to be wary of Mick. Barbara’s so curious about Mick; she steals his hotel room key and snoops around his room. Barbara discovers a letter she once wrote to James Stenbeck in a shoe box of Mick’s. Paul requests that he and Mick go talk to a real fertility doctor about his “treatments.”  Barbara gives a cop she’s paid off the glass that she stole from Mick’s hotel room. They say the fingerprints on the glass are James Stenbeck’s.

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.
