Sharkey goes to the Lakeview to spend some quality time with Kiki, his renta-babe. Molly and Holden see him pay for his room in cash and become suspicious. They knock on his door and Holden distracts him while Molly checks his cell phone for incoming calls. Molly sees the name “Grimaldi” is listed. They tell Meg that they might be starting to believe her. When Molly discovers that Officer Grady retired and moved to Chicago, Holen and Molly decide to go check him out.  Lily and Damian are meant to go away to visit Faith, but Lily’s reluctant. When she learns Damian told Luke to coerce Reid to come to town by unsavory means, they have a fight.  Holden and Molly find Grady and Molly tries to trick him into confessing to her. Grady does, but when Molly goes to tell Holden she’s stopped by Damian who figured out they were investigating him. Damian tries to convince Molly that Holden will leave her for Lily if they manage to expose Damian and put him behind bars. Molly finds herself unable to tell Holden Damian paid Grady off. Lily’s livid when she learns that Holden left town, just as she was planning too. She and Emma argue about her relationships. She goes home just as Damian returns, and they plan to leave on their trip.

Jack and Carly break from their kiss.  Later, they kiss again. Carly pulls back, knows he’s married, and just needs him to leave.  Jack leaves and they’re on opposite sides of the door, each conflicted.  Margo doesn’t think Jack is fully prepared to come back to the force.  He goes to the spot where the boathouse used to be and meets up with Carly there.  They talk about how they always come back to each other and how, despite their fighting, things fall apart when they’re apart.  Jack confesses his feelings but Carly wants him to hold back until he’s actually hers again.  Jack goes home to talk to Janet, and is surprised to see Janet excited to see him, admitting she really needs him right now.  Jack hears about Liberty’s illness.  He is conflicted but affirms the promises he made when marrying Janet.  Carly has prepared a nice evening for them – beers for Jack, candles – and is disappointed when Craig shows up.  He realizes something’s up and that Carly wants Jack back.  Carly’s disappointed again when Jack comes over and admits he has to stay with Janet.  Dusty then hears that Jack came back to Janet and is himself disappointed.

Janet and Dusty go to see Liberty but she’s not in her room.  Dusty finds her on the hospital grounds and suggests she throw rocks at a building, to express her anger.  He reveals he owns the building, but he wants her to direct those feelings of anger at the cancer itself, to try her hardest to fight.  Liberty understands and appreciates Dusty’s support.  Janet takes Liberty to school, to talk to the principal about her illness.  Liberty wants to get through the day, but sees the relative unimportance of her bio test.  She goes to see Parker and wants to make love with him.  He wonders what brought this on, and Liberty eventually says she has leukemia.  Dusty takes Johnny to the hospital for a checkup.  Dr. Hearn wants to tell him about Liberty’s tests but Dusty tells him to talk to Janet and the others.  Johnny understands and asks if Liberty’s going to die like his mom did.  Dusty tries to explain it’s not the same situation but also that they’ll try even harder to get Liberty better. Dr. Reid Oliver tells Luke Noah’s case isn’t interesting enough to bother coming to Oakdale for. Luke, at a loss, goes to Damian for counsel. In typical Damian fashion he suggest Luke make it impossible for Dr. Oliver to say no. Luke threatens Dr. Oliver into coming, but when he returns home, he finds a note saying that Maddie collected Noah for lunch. Maddie asked Noah to lunch so she could work on a vlog entry about their relationship and his blindness. When Hunter runs into them, Noah’s charmed by his blunt yet innocent demeanor. Hunter tries to cheer Noah up by letting him enjoy music in a special sound room. Maddie’s taken aback but pleased by Hunter’s success and good intentions.  Luke, unable to find Noah at Al’s, leaves him a message and goes to the hospital to meet Dr. Oliver, who’s momentarily livid the patient can’t be found. Reid winds up approving of Noah, once he arrives, but Reid tells Luke to never pull another rich-boy stunt on him again. Noah would be mad at Luke for getting Reid to come to town by force, but he’s too happy that he may see again to hold it against him.  Reid is gruff but agrees to do the surgery.  A pre-surgery exam reveals that the procedure would have to be more in-depth than what Reid has time for.  Luke insists Reid stay but Reid won’t be bossed around.  Reid takes the keys from Luke and hits Kim’s car with his as he tries to get away.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Max Gail Turns In Another Emmy-Worthy Performance As Mike’s Battle With Alzheimer’s Takes Its Toll

For any of us who have seen our loved ones deteriorate right before our eyes, due to the horrific affects of Alzheimer’s, and have been witness to their confusion, dementia, angry outbursts, frightened looks, and uncontrollable tears, yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a stark reminder of how this disease is a gut-punch to those afflicted and their family members.

For several months, GH viewers saw a bit less of Mike; played brilliantly by recent Daytime Emmy Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, Max Gail.  And smartly, the writers have taken the time to advance Mike’s condition …. as at this point he doesn’t recognize his son, his family, his friends, and more.  For Mike, he is living in the past spirally backward and downward.

When Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) go to visit Mike at Turning Woods, it’s clear  how much he is suffering.  When Dev plays a checkers game with Mike it seems to calm him down, but when Sonny (Maurice Benard) enters, all hell breaks loose.  Mike thinks his son is actually one of their mortal enemies Joe Scully.

Earlier, at the Corinthos home, Michael (Chad Duell) sees that Sonny is considering entering his father in a clinical trial. Sonny says he knows it won’t cure the disease, but hopes the drugs in the trial can slow its progression.  In a key question, any family member needs to ask themselves, Michael asks Sonny to think first, if this is the man Mike would want to be?  Michael shares that Mike is no longer himself and sadly, there is no coming back from that.

All this becomes more poignant when Sonny sees first-hand how far Mike has slid.  Will Sonny be able to come to terms with losing Mike to Alzheimer’s?  How will he deal with it?  Gail’s partner in this entire storyline has been GH icon, Maurice Benard, who delivers poignant work throughout this story in very contained, emotional moments of deep hurt and pain, as Sonny watches the father he knew become lost in himself and to others.

Watch the key scenes below from yesterday’s GH below featuring Gail.  Then, let us know, do you think Max could end up in the running for another Daytime Emmy for his work?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.
