Holden confronts Damian at the Docks. Holden would call the police on him, but Damian insists that putting Lily and Luke through a trial will be worse than just letting him go. They fight and later we see Holden rinsing himself, bloodied, at the Snyder Farm. He goes to find Lily at home, who has just told Luke that Damian lied to them about the DNA test. Luke apologizes to Holden for trusting Damian. Holden leaves to see if there’s any word about Meg. Back at Snyder Farm, Molly tells Holden she’s moving into the Lakeview when she notices he’s bleeding through his shirt. She asks what happened between him and Damian. Molly keeps pressing Holden about what happened between him and Damian on the Docks, but Holden keeps mum. He invites Lily over to tell the children that Damian’s gone. Natalie and Ethan accept the news, but Lily feels guilty for putting them through it all.  Lucinda stumbles in on Dusty and Teri at Metro. She senses something between them, but Dusty denies much to Teri’s disappointment. Teri tells Dusty she’s not a kid and that they could reasonably date but he tells her they’re not meant to be together. Teri accuses Dusty of being in love with Janet. Later Lucinda meets the PI (Dusty presumably gave her the contact info for) and she asks him to find Damian and make sure he never returns to Oakdale.

Emily almost remembers discovering Mick’s not who he says he is. But she can’t quite grasp the memories and Mick’s right there to encourage her to focus on having a baby. Paul’s upset when he hears Emily repeating Mick’s words about just wanting to work on having a child right now, since he’s still worried about her health. Emily becomes upset and Paul tries to pacify her. He goes to Barbara’s hotel room where Mick had just given her a treatment and a ring to remind her of his love and devotion for her. When Paul arrives, Mick leaves promising to only do whatever’s in Emily’s best interests. Paul accuses Barbara of having an unhealthy interest in Mick and when he sees the ring, and realizes Mick gave it to her; Paul demands to know who Mick is. Barbara tells Paul it’s not her secret to tell. Meanwhile, back at Fairwinds Mick tells Emily that he’ll give her a child if Paul won’t.  Casey learns, much to his disappointment, that the bar might not let him become a lawyer due to his criminal past. Tom and he discuss how unfair it is. They return home, where Casey left exhausted Alison napping.  Alison’s not in his bed, but comes rushing in explaining that she took a walk, but felt the strong urge to only be in Casey’s arms. Casey’s ok with that.   Alison was actually at the Bell Tower caressing Mick’s scarf.  Mick convinces Emily to harvest her eggs on the premise that if Paul won’t commit to having a child with her, he’ll help her himself. Emily’s then goes to Alison’s wedding shower at the Lakeview. The shower’s attendees, Lisa, Susan, and Margo have stressed Ali out about whether or not she’ll change her last name when she marries Casey. Ali notices Mick watching her in the Lobby and she goes to him. He pulls her into the elevator and tries to convince her that she doesn’t actually want this marriage. Ali denies and manages to get out of the elevator. Seeing Casey arrive, she grabs hold of him and they go back to Tom and Margo’s where Ali is once again put down to rest. She awakes, alone, and leaves. She arrives at Bell Tower, unsure of why she’s come. Mick kisses her passionately and they begin to make love.  Barbara tells unsatisfied Paul that Mick will reveal his plan when he’s ready. Paul’s about to lose it, he’s so nervous that Mick might harm his wife, when Susan brings Emily in. Emily kept acting like she was in a trance at the shower and she tells Paul, once again in Mick’s words, that she’s going to have a baby with or without him. Paul’s distraught; he thought he and Emily were going to make it work this time. Emily snaps out of it and realizes Mick’s somehow brainwashing her. Barbara’s yelled at by Paul, rejected by Mick, and later finds herself looking in the mirror wondering if she looks remotely younger at all.

Alison leaves Mick in the Bell Tower after having made love. She’s determined this is not the life she wants for herself, even though Mick would rather they run away together. When she returns home, she claims she went for a walk. Casey wants to kiss her, but she refuses and jumps in the shower. When she returns Casey notices she’s missing her engagement ring. Alarmed Ali covers and says she left it in the shower, then she makes up an excuse and leaves to return to the Bell Tower. She finds the ring on Mick’s pillow along with a note from him that says that there’s a reason why she accidentally left her ring there. Ali’s conflicted.  Emily remembers that Mick confessed to her that he wasn’t who he said he was before he knocked her out and put her in a coma. Alarmed she and Paul scheme to get him to come over. Mick’s relieved to get a phone call from Emily, so he can stop arguing with Barbara about his feelings for her and Alison. He arrives and Emily and Paul pounce on him. Barbara’s tagged along with Mick, however, and when she sees Emily and Paul grabbing him she cries out for them to stop because Mick is Paul’s father.

Jack, Janet and Liberty return to their hotel after seeing some cancer specialists in NYC. Liberty will need chemo. Bummed no one could give her a miracle cure Liberty reaches out to Carly and complains about all the Doctors’ appointments, etc… Carly reveals she’s in NYC for MonteCarlo meetings. Liberty wants to meet up with her at the Met but Carly doesn’t think it’s a good idea. Liberty, let down, asks Jack and Janet if she can go alone to the Met and while Janet would rather Liberty stay, Jack convinces her to let Liberty go. Liberty runs into a fortune teller at the Met who tells her she has a very short life line. Liberty almost freaks out but Carly, sensing she should turn up at the Met, finds her and brings her back to the hotel. Jack and Janet are grateful Liberty’s safe, but Janet doesn’t like Carly’s presence. Jack confesses to Carly privately that when he’s with Janet he feels like he’s cheating on Carly.

Carly’s touched and accepts, but Jack remains in the kitchen, rooted in his spot. When Janet goes, Carly asks Jack why he never came out. He tries to reason that it would’ve looked suspicious – except they both know it wouldn’t have if they didn’t feel so guilty because of their shared, secret feelings for each other. They decide they’ll have to put their feelings aside. Jack returns home to Janet and promises her she has nothing to worry about when it comes to Carly. Henry tries in vain to convince Katie to let him move in instead of Reid. Katie won’t let Henry move in because of their shared history, his unspoken feelings for her, and Brad’s death.

Luke is suffering once he discovers that Damian lied to him and Lily. He would lean on Noah, but he can’t – since Reid won’t treat Noah if he’s affiliated with Luke. Noah regrets not being able to be there for Luke. Noah tells Reid he doesn’t like his rules, even though he’ll abide by them for the chance to get his sight back.  Luke doesn’t understand why Damian left him in the lurch with Noah’s surgery coming up and to handle a company he barely knows how to run. Luke asks Lily if there’s more to his disappearance than she told him, but Lily doesn’t want to talk about it. Luke turns to Molly, who’s recently come off a conversation with Holden (where he admitted that he and Damian fought and that he left Damian unconscious aboard a ship that left port). Molly’s nervous that Luke’s asking questions about Damian’s disappearance until she realizes it’s not related to Holden. Molly tells Luke that Damian drove Meg crazy and almost killed her (which Lily had been keeping from him). Luke’s horrified to learn this information. He returns to Lily who’s been delivered Damian’s wallet from a man at the docks, who found it in the water. They both think that this is a very bad sign and that Damian is in serious trouble – they think, likely by the hands of Meg.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope To Steffy, “I’m Taking My Daughter & Don’t You Dare Try To Stop Me”

The next key revelation of the baby switch; that devastated the lives of Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton), but gave Steffy a baby to raise and a sister to Kelly, began to unravel on Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

Now that Hope knows for sure that Beth is alive and has been living as “Phoebe” under Steffy’s care, it was time to lower the boom on Steffy.  So, at the cliff house, a distraught Steffy refuses at first to believe the truth.  She says, “That baby can’t be Beth … she’s Phoebe!”

Liam (Scott Clifton) tells Steffy that he and Hope can do whatever genetic testing is necessary to prove it to her, but that it will indeed come back and prove that they are the biological parents to the little girl.   As they explain the events that led to Steffy ‘adopting’ Beth, she learns from Liam and Hope that Dr. Buckingham sold their baby for a gambling debt and how Steffy’s mom, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) was unknowingly buying their baby to give to her.

Hope says she cannot wait to take little Beth home, and how grateful she is that Steffy took such good care of her daughter all of these months.  Then, Steffy blurts out: “You’re not taking my daughter from the only home she’s ever known.  I’m her mommy.”  Steffy tries to use the reasoning that if Hope takes Phoebe away, she will be ripping her from the only home she has ever known.  Hope. who is becoming more frustrated and upset with Steffy says, “Her name is Beth.”  She then informs Steffy that she and Liam will let her help out with the transition.

Steffy starts to have a meltdown as she realizes that the little girl is really Beth.  Next, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive on the scene.  Steffy defies Hope and tells her again, “There’s no way you’re taking my daughter home.”  Brooke reminds her and everyone in the room that there was nothing legal about the adoption, while Ridge tries to make everyone understand how Steffy is also blindsided.  Steffy continues on how she is the only mother Beth knows, and the cliff house as her home.

A steadfast Hope tells Steffy in no uncertain terms she is now with her, her real mother, who she should have been with since the day she was born.  Hope tells Steffy again how grateful she is to her … but she firmly tells her, “I’m taking my daughter, and don’t you dare try to stop me.”  We fade to black.

Last week and this week, the cast involved in the baby switch storylime from: Annika Noelle, Scott Clifton, to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood have delivered strong and memorable performances as the payoff of this story continues.

So, do you hope Hope just walks right on out with Beth?  Do you think Steffy will go so far as to fight for custody? Take off with Beth and runaway? Share your thoughts om what you think will happen next via the comment section below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Franco Wake Up As Drew & Become The Next Victim Of Mind-Mapping?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, picked up from the major plot twist; and unfortunately for Franco (Roger Howarth), even with the arrival of Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) to save the day; according to Dr. Cabot (Time Winters), the mind-mapping transfer could not be stopped.  And as the men were all bantering and arguing about, the download into Franco’s brain was fully completed.  Then, Cabot tells Drew that when Franco wakes up, it will be with the memories of Drew dating back to 2012.

Now the questions are, did the procedure work?  Will Franco awake from this nightmare with the history and personality of Drew, or could Dr, Cabot’s experiment be a bust on him?  Next. Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Chase (Josh Swickard) show-up.  Liz is heartsick to begin to learn what happened in the warehouse to her son, Cameron (William Lipton) and her husband.  Chase arrests Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but he also goes to GH to get medical attention for his wounds from the fight with Drew and Curtis.

Once, Franco is taken to General Hospital still unconscious, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) is on the medical case and gets him a neurological work-up.  Lucas then has to stitch up Shiloh, who continually throws jabs at the good doc about Wiley.   Then in a bit of foreshadowing, Dr. Cabot tells Drew, that he will thank him once Franco wakes up with Drew’s memories.  Does that mean that Drew could have done some horrible things in his past … or that Shiloh will leave Drew alone, because what he needs is inside Franco’s brain now? Drew hopes his memories stay buried.

In heartbreaking scenes, and in touching performances from William Lipton and Rebecca Herbst; as well as Billy Miller, Cam tells his mother about Franco’s last words to him to,  ‘Tell your mom I love her and that I’ll be back”.   Liz learns how Franco protected her son, and traded places with him. Next, Liz sits by an unconscious Franco, and in tears, thanks him for keeping Cameron safe, but laments that it would be a far less wonderful world without Franco in it, and begs him to come back to her, and what a hero he is for what he did saving her son.

In addition, Cameron gives Drew a key piece of Intel he learned during his kidnapping and while the mind-mapping procedure on Franco was taking place.  Shiloh is looking for a specific memory that would allow him to disappear, and that is why he is so determined to get inside Drew’s head from back in the day, by any means possible!  When Cameron sees Shiloh being taken away by Chase, he runs at him but is stopped by Drew. Cameron threatens a snide and laughing Shiloh that he will, “Make him pay.”  Uh-oh!  Is a murder mystery on the way, too?  Drew tries to talk down Cameron.
