Lily tells Holden that Damian sent her the ring and the note.  Molly sees that Lily has bought it and shows her happiness to Holden.  Margo goes to Luke to say that a body was found and positively identified as Damian’s.  Noah will be there for Luke.  Molly and Holden celebrate by making love and talking about getting their family back together.  Lily comes home and tells Luke about the ring and the note, and Luke’s flabbergasted, then tells Lily that Margo was over with news about Damian’s body.  Now, Lily’s not sure what she believes.  Lily calls Margo and agrees to meet at the station.  Margo goes to the docks and sees a boy named Arthur who identifies Holden and Damian. Margo arrests Holden on a murder charge. Margo tells Holden the Maltese authorities are going after whoever killed Damian.  Lily and Luke believe Damian’s still alive, and that makes Molly feel guilty.  Molly hears Lily gave the ring to the police and Molly heads out in a panic.  Margo tells Holden about the ring, that it’s not authentic and was made here in Oakdale.  But she’ll still have to arrest him.  Lily catches up to Molly at Java and confronts her, presuming she had the ring made.  Luke is disappointed in Holden for not being honest with him.  Lily and Molly want to work together to free Holden, but Margo gets a fax that says Holden’s being extradited to Malta to stand trial for Damian’s murder.  Reid examines the brain scans that Luke has of Damian and says unless Damian has Huntington’s disease, they can’t belong to him. Holden is about to be extradited, and there’s not much Lily or Tom can do because of Damian’s influence.  Molly takes it into her own hands, goes to the station and tells Holden’s story.  The Attorney General, who knows Lucinda, gets on the phone and wants to work it out.  By EOD, Holden is not going to be extradited.

Craig wants to support Carly’s business interests and talks to Ellis about liquidating some assets.  Carly, meanwhile, is about to tell Jack about Janet and Dusty when Janet arrives and wonders what’s up. Janet then tells Carly she and Jack are going to have a baby. Carly’s shocked and goes to Craig, who says this is a good thing, will provide some distance between Carly and Jack.  Craig consoles Carly, kisses her hair, which makes Carly flip out and leave.  Janet wonders if Jack doesn’t want to commit to her. Jack insists it’s got to be about the baby.  Janet goes to see Liberty. Craig goes to Milltown and sees Jack, teases him about the baby. Janet wants Carly to stay away from Jack. Carly fires back that she knows about Janet and Dusty. Jack brings Liberty a DVD player, but Dusty has to bring it into the room.  Liberty is comforted.  Dusty also has a punching bag with “cancer” written on it, to help Liberty through.  Jack runs into Carly outside Yo’s, not sure of how he’ll proceed.  Dusty talks to Janet at the hospital, tries to convince her they can be good for each other.  Dusty then talks to Carly at the Lakeview, hears that Jack and Janet will be having a baby.  Jack relents and agrees to it officially, and at EOD Jack and Janet make love. Carly cleans the house, upset.  Parker senses it, and then goes to see Jack about it.  Jack has been awkward with Janet, and vice versa, about the baby.  Dusty has been doing some research and tells Liberty about a program in Minnesota for youths with leukemia.  There’s a spot available and Liberty wants to go.  Dusty tells Janet about it and she’s upset.  Dusty just wants to help, and doesn’t think a baby with Jack would be good for Janet, or anyone.  Parker is comforting to Liberty, but she doesn’t want him to come along to Minnesota.  At EOD, Parker and Liberty do speak over video chat on the computer, but Liberty’s still upset about her condition and being where she is. Craig reiterates to Carly that she’s still too attached to Jack, and it’s not doing her any good.  Craig wants her to focus on Monte Carlo.  He thinks they’ll have to move to New York to succeed.  Carly insists she can make it in Oakdale, as she has before.  She goes to Fashions, then runs out with a dress.  She’s wearing it near EOD when Jack goes to see her after being tipped off by the salesgirl. Carly and Jack start to kiss, and almost go upstairs to make love. Jack pulls back, because of Janet, and Carly lets fly that Janet slept with Dusty.  Craig, meanwhile, wants to use Parker’s trust fund to bankroll Monte Carlo.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: 50th Anniversary Of Newman Enterprises Gala Brings Retro Clips, Speeches & Icon Eric Braeden

Wednesday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it a very special episode to honor Eric Braeden’s 40th anniversary with the top-rated soap operas as the one and only Victor Newman.  Braeden has made himself and Victor Newman a household name throughout his four decades in Genoa City.

Since back in 1980 when Eric first came on to the scene as Victor, Y&R knew they had struck gold.  To celebrate the milestone, the series crafted an episode that centered around Newman Enterprises 50th anniversary and held a gala in its honored, steer-headed by Victor’s wife, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

With special returning guest stars including: Meg Bennett (Julia), Robert Parucha (Matt), Robert Adamson (Noah) and Eileen Davidson (Ashley), throughout the hour, characters stood up from their tables delivering a few endearing …. or sometimes contentious thoughts at their relationships with Victor over the years.

From children, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), Nick (Joshua Morrow), Abby (Melissa Ordway) and Adam (Mark Grossman) to business rivals, Jack (Peter Bergman) and Jill (Jess Walton) and more, emotions ran high.

What Y&R delivered best in the episode was finding retrospective clips that fans have not seen in awhile, while also reminding us through Braeden’s two most towering performances – when Victor confronts his mother (Dorothy McGuire) and later his father (George Kennedy) – the depth of his performances which to this day can make you reach for the hankies all over again.   One of our other favorite clips was the simply-stated scene between Abby and Victor; where he supports his daughter while her love life has fallen apart.

In addition, if you watched Braeden throughout the episode, several time he had tears in his eyes, as the viewers felt what Victor must be feeling during this walk down memory lane, and Eric, himself.   The series also went all in creating pieces of photographic art of Eric as a time capsule to this special occasion, which showed the attention to detail everyone at Y&R had for this special actor.

General Hospital

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

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman ... And Shiloh's Widow

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.
