Damian touches base with Sharkey, who assures him Meg is safely sedated on her medication and won’t be a problem for him. 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.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke is “Slap” Happy … And Don’t We Love It?

Several characters are pushing the buttons of Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) these days on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and in return for their nasty remarks and machinations they have pulled, they have been on the receiving end of a wallop when Brooke’s hand meets their face!

First, there was Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), who was on the receiving end of bitch-slap from Brooke.  Now on Friday’s episode, it was another showdown – Shauna (Denise Richards) vs. Brooke.

Now that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is looking to move in with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for awhile to give space for him and Brooke to hopefully repair their strained relationship, Brooke shows up at Shauna’s.  Then, the gloves come off, and Brooke wants to know what happened the night Shauna spent with a drunken Ridge.  Shauna tells Brooke that she just made sure that her hubby was alright.  Brooke questions Shauna about not calling her to pick up Ridge. Shauna reminds Brooke that she told her off shortly before that night.

Then, Brooke channels her late mother-in-law, Stephanie Forrester and calls Shauna, “A slut from the desert.”   Shauna bites back saying that she is not the only slut, after all, Brooke slept with all the Forrester men and that Deacon, Hope’s father, was actually her son-in-law!

That was enough for Brooke to slap Shauna, and she really hit her target … so much so … that during the scene, Denise Richards’ earring came off!  During the slap, Brooke warns Shauna to stay away from Ridge with the following words : “He knows you’re trash. Do you understand me?”

Seems to us that Thomas and Shauna might be the next duo to conspire to destroy Ridge and Brooke from ever reconciling.

So, are you loving that Brooke is laying the smackdown on all those who wronged her and her family?  Do you think Thomas and Shauna might end up in an unholy alliance? Comment below.   But first, watch this soapalicious scene featuring Katherine Kelly Lang and Denise Richards.
