Jack calls Dusty on moving in on his family too soon, even willing to fight over it.  They cool off when Liberty has called Janet and needs to see her.  Dusty, Janet, Jack and Carly fly up to Minnesota to see Liberty and Parker.  A decision has to be made about continuing Liberty’s treatment. Liberty wants to keep going with it.  Dusty would cover it but Jack insists he (Jack) make sure his insurance will cover it. Janet tells Liberty she’s pregnant and Liberty is livid with Jack for letting this happen.  Janet consoles Liberty and explains it’s not just about the chance for a donor.  Dusty asks for a minute alone and asks/tells Liberty he wants to marry Janet.  Liberty’s moved and calls Janet in, and Dusty gives Janet a ring, as Jack enters.  Jack’s a mensch about it. Carly has taken Parker off and tells him she won’t let anything get between her and Jack again.  At EOD, Jack and Carly enjoy the idea of being together. Vienna has a drink with Barbara and Henry.  Barbara doesn’t tell Vienna about her and Henry’s recent affair.  Henry is appreciative.  Vienna finds an earring in her bed, but she’s okay with it since she and Henry were broken up.  But Vienna wants Henry to make love to her and he resists her. Katie wants to seal the deal with Henry so he can’t back out of donating the money to the hospital. She and Reid get Henry to write the check in front of them and Vienna – who can’t wait to fall in love all over again with a new and improved Henry. They go to WOAK so Katie can do a piece about the new wing of the hospital to be named after Brad. Kim and Bob are there for the segment of the show, and Barbara’s tagged along. When Henry and Barbara run into each other they share a heated moment and Barbara almost tells Henry she loves him. After they finish taping, they go to the Lakeview to celebrate. There, Henry and Barbara talk in the elevator and share that they just want someone to love them for who they are, not who they are supposed be. They almost kiss, but the elevator opens and Barbara makes a quick exit. Henry avoids Vienna, who’s looking for him.

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Oh Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang)!

Now, the fallout begins! As Ridge and Katie (Heather Tom) are besides themselves with hurt and betrayal as it appears that Bill and Brooke once again could not keep their hands and lips off of each other.

Ridge has had it, and in no uncertain terms, smashes the iPad in defiance of the memories he shared with Brooke , and then after Bill opens his mouth to try to explain how Brooke needed comforting over Thomas (Matt Atkinson), especially since Ridge never believed her about his son, Ridge then hauls off and punches the guy.

Katie can’t believe it either!  She thought this was buried once and for all between them, but then she realizes she feels once again gullible to her sister’s seemingly endless attraction to the man she loves, Bill!

Quinn is loving every minute of this, and meanwhile at Shauna’s, Flo (Katrina Bowden) and Shauna (Denise Richards) are discussing why Shauna is leaving town, which stems from her loving Ridge, and not being able to be with him; even though she knows that Brooke’s world can come tumbling down with that videotape of that kiss with Bill.  Might she still have her shot at love with Ridge?

Back at the party, Brooke tries to explain to all and mostly to Ridge and Katie, how the kiss happened, and how it did not mean anything, and that she was in a vulnerable place after Thomas had just left.  So, Bill came in to comfort her.  But no matter how hard she tried, and through her tears and through her pleas that she loves Ridge and her sister, Ridge is  now ready to walk out on Brooke for good, and Katie is disgusted.

In this episode, B&B stalwart, Katherine Kelly Lang delivered a great performance of a woman who knows she did wrong, tries to explain it away and rationalize what happened; when nothing good could possibly come out of it for her.  Open, vulnerable, honest Brooke lays it all on the line, but who is going to easily forgive her for this?

After the episode aired, B&B and CBS Daytime released the promo for next week’s episodes, which show that Ridge does wind up at Shauna’s. (Check it out below) Now, what will happen between them and is Bridge finally over?

In the comment section, let us know what you thought about today’s episode and what happened to Brooke during the party after her secret kiss with Bill was revealed!
