Carly finishes telling Jack about Janet and Dusty, how upset it makes her to see Jack torture himself when this is going on.  Carly thinks this changes everything, but Jack disagrees. There’s still family to think about.  Jack has to go work it out.  Jack goes to Metro to see Dusty but hears he’s out of town, and guesses Minneapolis.  Dusty, meanwhile, has been there for Janet and Liberty.  Liberty prepares for a treatment and Janet stays behind.  Dusty returns to the hotel to find Jack there wanting to discuss the Janet situation.  Jack defends his marriage while Dusty criticizes that they haven’t been there for each other.  Dusty admits he’s in love with Janet, just before Janet arrives. Craig’s livid to discover Carly’s only dragged him to Minnesota so she can go after Jack. He locks her in the hotel room. Meanwhile, Jack confronts Janet and Dusty about their infidelity. Dusty claims that he loves Janet. Janet won’t beg for Jack to forgive her, because all she can do is focus on Liberty. Carly interrupts their conversation, having broke out the hotel room. Craig joins the group as well, just as Carly tells all that Jack planned to return to her, and leave Janet, before he found out that Liberty was sick. Janet’s upset by this news, and even more upset that everyone else seemed to be informed but her. Carly says now that the truths out everyone can be with who they want to be, but Dusty notes it’s not that simple. Jack forces everyone out so he can talk to Janet alone. Janet asks him point blank if he’s in love with Carly and he says yes. Janet and Jack agree they should get that annulment, but Janet still wants to have a baby for Liberty. Dusty and Craig try to drink their sorrows away, while Carly settles for a chocolate bar. Carly looks into IVF and runs the idea past Janet and Jack.  She thinks it’s an ideal solution for Jack and Janet to have the child they’re looking for without actually sleeping together, which would sadden Carly.  Janet considers it, but isn’t sure about the idea of quintuplets.  Carly suggests giving them away, which Janet passes along to Jack, who himself isn’t sure he could do that.  Dusty looks to Jen for her blessing of Dusty’s wanting Janet. Craig gives Parker limited access to his own trust fund, to be used with Jack and Carly’s permission.  Parker goes to Minneapolis to visit Liberty, despite her wishes.  He goes and makes her laugh, takes some of the edge off.   Dusty asks Janet to marry him.  He’s tired of the way things are among Jack, Janet and Carly.  Janet is so surprised she faints.  They go to the hospital.  Liberty has spoken to Jack and pleaded with him not to bring a child into the world under these particular circumstances.  It wouldn’t be good for the baby, or Liberty, or the kid’s parents, really.  Jack then comes in to the hospital and tells Janet he can’t give her a baby.  Later, Janet hears that she’s pregnant.

Reid suggests to Katie that she take Henry’s offer of the Stenbeck fortune.  Barbara and Henry have enjoyed another romantic night, when Katie is there to talk to Henry.  Henry makes Barbara hide, which makes her realize Henry cares what Katie thinks about them.  Katie comes in, putting it together and insulting Henry’s taste in women (which irks a hiding Barbara).  Barbara is angry with Henry, and storms out, slamming the door on his hand.  Barbara then confronts Katie about the money, and Katie knows Henry told Barbara about their own conversations.  Henry goes to the hospital and reluctantly receives treatment from Reid.  Reid is direct with Henry, saying flat out that Henry himself thinks he’s not good enough for Katie.  Katie then cooks Reid an organic dinner and says she’ll miss him, if tomorrow’s hearing goes well for him and he leaves. Reid has a hearing about whether or not he can leave town. Bob and Kim stand up for Reid, much to Reid’s surprise. Luke tells the judge that he should have never pressed charges to begin with. The judge would drop Reid’s case, but Henry says Reid is a criminal for keeping him hostage with a fake diagnosis of TB. The judge let’s Reid go despite Henry’s charges. Katie’s delighted for Reid and livid at Henry. Reid tells Bob he’d stay if the hospital had better facilities, but Bob says they don’t have the funding. Katie asks Henry to donate his money to the hospital. Henry won’t. At the hospital Reid thanks Luke for standing up for him in the court room. There’s a thaw between them, until Reid lets it drop that he is indeed going to leave town now that he has the opportunity too. Luke’s upset, thought Reid wouldn’t abandon Noah’s case. Reid tells Luke that Noah’s going to Dallas with him. Luke confronts Noah, but Noah assures Luke that it’s not about their relationship, it’s about Noah gaining some independence and moving on with his life. Luke begs Reid not to leave, but Reid tells Luke he’s going to make Noah well and that’s the point. Devastated, Luke lets him walk away.

Meanwhile, back at the police station, Molly relays to Holden about her run in with an agitated Faith.

Holden urges Molly to reach out to a clearly troubled Faith. Back at Lily’s Faith distracts the security guard so Damian can sneak in the house and talk to Lily. Faith tries to divert the security guard to let Damian in to see Lily, but it doesn’t quite work, also because Molly comes in to see Lily about Faith.  Molly continues to be curious about Faith, and so calls the headmistress at Faith’s boarding school.  Molly hears that Faith’s father was there to pick her up, and Molly is startled and confused.  Faith apologizes to Damian for not affording him the chance to see Lily.

General Hospital

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: Nikolas & Spencer's Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

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.

It’s clear she wants a second chance at being Peter’s mother and can’t see past that. With that, the duo is at a crossroads. Finn goes to get his daughter, Violet and packs a bag and moves of their place and heads to the Metro Court for the night.  He tells Anna he has to protect his daughter.  Of course, when they get to the Metro Court, they run into Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Finn is not happy.   Will Anna and Finn reconcile? Will Peter finally, finally get his comeuppance?
