With both Brooke and Taylor taking a different side about Thomas, Stephanie finds herself squarely in the middle and with a definite opinion. Stephanie agrees with Taylor that there is no denying Brooke’s scandalous behavior at Forrester Creations, and with the Forrester family, but also feels it’s not realistic to forbid Thomas from being in contact with his father’s wife. Taylor feels betrayed that Stephanie is taking Brooke’s side and after Brooke leaves, expresses to her friend that she feels she’s lost so much from Stephanie to Brooke. Stephanie apologizes to Taylor and reassures her that she’s not losing her friendship. Angry, Taylor let’s Stephanie know that it’s not “if” Brooke will go after her son, but “when”. Stephanie is left speechless when Taylor goes on an obsessive rant about Thomas needing protection from Brooke. Amber attempts to comfort Oliver when he arrives home early from his photo shoot with Hope. After learning how Liam barged in and took a willing Hope away, Amber offers Oliver a sympathetic ear and a bit of advice. Liam takes Hope to a secluded area on the beach where he speaks to her candidly about her relationship with Oliver and how the death of his mother has changed him. Hope and Liam share a steamy kiss. Taylor leaves Stephanie and heads to Ridge’s office to talk to him about the situation. When she enters, she becomes convinced that her worst fear has become a reality, when she sees Thomas in a steamy embrace with Brooke.  Taylor is relieved to find out she is mistaken and that the blonde girl Thomas is kissing is really “Summer.” Thomas demands an explanation for his mother’s behavior. When she admits she thought it was Brooke, Thomas promises her that will never happen. Thomas assures Taylor that he doesn’t resent her for giving her shares of the company to Steffy and explains that Brooke is helping to make everything okay because she is helping him to work his way up the ladder the old fashioned way, with hard work. Taylor agrees to stop fighting Brooke and Thomas’ partnership and the Taboo line. Stephen, Donna and Katie meet with Brooke for lunch. The Logan family discuss Donna and Stephen’s recent trip to Paris and Donna admits that she still misses Eric.  Stephen broaches the topic of his continuing relationship with Pam and asks his daughters to let bygones by bygones and to move forward. Stephen, Donna and Katie are skeptical when Brooke reveals that Stephanie’s cancer has changed her perspective on life. They query her about the kiss with Thomas. They are shocked when Brooke tells them that Stephanie supports her in this because it has created quite a buzz for the Taboo line. Brooke continues to defend Thomas and convinces her family that the publicity the kiss generated is good for business.  Katie comments on how good Brooke and Thomas look together. Brooke looks at pictures of Thomas and tells her sisters she sees Ridge in his son.

Amber and Oliver panic when Aggie arrives unannounced. Amber hides on the patio and listens as Aggie tells Oliver not to give up on Hope and begins to malign Amber.  When Aggie goes to shut the patio door, she sees Amber in hiding. Amber shows herself and gives Aggie attitude for what she said about her. Oliver tries to continue to cover to his sister, but Amber reveals the truth; that she and Oliver are living together.  Oliver comes to Amber’s defense when Aggie demands that he get rid of Amber immediately. Oliver becomes affected when Aggie asks how living with Amber will improve his chances of reuniting with Hope. Aggie leaves and Amber begins to pack. Oliver reminds her that she doesn’t need to defend herself anymore. Amber flirts with Oliver and tells him that while she wouldn’t steal the Forrester designs again, she would definitely still make the moves on him. Although Oliver assures her that he doesn’t see her like Aggie does, Amber is still disappointed when he tells her that she does need to leave. While Aggie goes to see Hope to beg her to give Oliver one more chance, Amber begs Oliver not to throw her out of his house. Amber gets seductive with Oliver and he becomes tempted by her offer. Hope attempts to get Aggie to understand that she and Oliver will always be friends but that she is with Liam now. Taylor explains to Ridge about her case of mistaken identity with Thomas and his model friend. She admits to her ex-husband that he is the only person who truly understands her. Taylor expresses her relief that she and Thomas were finally able to have an honest conversation and promises Ridge that she will try and trust Brooke. Taylor is beside herself when Ridge admits to her that if her fears would have been correct, and there were truly more between Brooke and Thomas than just the fashion line, his marriage would have been over. He goes on to say that if his marriage to Brooke fell apart he would return to her. Whip stands by unnoticed, but has heard part of his wife’s conversation with her ex-husband.

Ridge and Brooke make love and then discuss Stephanie, Taylor and Thomas. Ridge is surprised when Brooke tells him that Stephanie sided with her today over Taylor. Brooke and Ridge look at photos and remark how happy they are to be together and growing old. Brooke pledges to Ridge to never let anything happen again. Taylor is joyful at Ridge’s admission to her and calls Stephanie over to tell her all about it. As Taylor recounts to Stephanie her conversation with Ridge, Stephanie becomes concerned that Taylor may have misconstrued Ridge’s words and that Taylor may be holding out hope for a future with him. Taylor is positive that Brooke will let Ridge down and have another indiscretion. Stephanie expresses that she hopes that Brooke has changed, especially given all of the time that they have spent together lately. Stephanie thinks Taylor is still in love with Ridge. Amber tells Oliver she admires him and has learned so much for him. Oliver doesn’t allow Amber to berate herself for all of the mistakes she has made in the past. She wholeheartedly apologizes to him for all the messes she has gotten him into. Oliver surprises Amber and gives her a key to the apartment above the garage. She is genuinely moved, and tells him that he is more amazing than she realized and she hopes Hope knows how incredible he is. Aggie arrives to visit Oliver and is pleased that Amber is not there.  She tells her brother of her visit to Hope and urges him to go to her and tell her that he loves her.  Hope is surprised to see Amber at Forrester Creations. Hope lets Amber have it when she reveals she was hoping to see Rick to get a job. She accuses Amber of being a manipulator who enjoys hurting people. Amber is genuine when she tells Hope her true thoughts about Oliver and is pleased with herself when she plants a seed of doubt about Liam.

Bill and Justin are investigating the Liam limousine situation. Justin has uncovered information from the limousine company. Bill is angry and wants answers. When he finds out that Oliver was behind the stunt, he vows revenge. Amber and Hope continue to talk about Hope’s love life. Amber continues to persuade Hope that Liam is just like his father and she should not give up on Oliver.  Hope doesn’t want to listen but she doesn’t want to leave, either.  Liam visits Oliver at home and demands he stop making moves on his girl. Oliver reminds Liam that he works with Hope and that him taking her out of a photo shoot was unacceptable. The two argue over the Hope/Oliver kiss and who kissed who. The argument escalates and each man is convinced he is the right one for Hope.  Amber arrives home and starts to come through the patio door but Oliver waves her away. She sees Liam and hides on the patio. Hope thanks Ridge and Brooke for everything they have done for her. Her parents ask Hope why she seems blue and she admits that it is because of Oliver and Liam. They advise her to always put herself first when it comes to Liam and to make her intentions clear with Oliver, even if it may hurt him. Hope explains that it is not as simple as that, that she is still torn between the two of them. They are interrupted by a call from Liam who tells Hope he wants to see her tonight; that he has made plans and that she will be his top priority.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Elizabeth and Jason Have a Heart-to-Heart; Is a Liason Reunion Possible?

Have Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) 2.0 finally gone kaput? It would seem so. On Monday’s June 10th episode of General Hospital, it looks like the two now have what could be an insurmountable rift. Finn is drinking and can’t stop. Liz finds him with another woman drunk in his apartment, and can’t put herself in another relationship with someone who has an addiction (Remember, Lucky?).

Who should save Liz from an uncomfortable situation with Finn, but none other than Jason (Steve Burton). He comes upon on the scene where Finn is grabbing Liz’s hand to not leave him, but she insists it’s over between them.

Finn has hit his lowest point.  He has continued to spiral downward since the death of his father, Gregory.  Jason brings Liz to the Metro Court pool, which is closed at this time.

She admits to Jason, she wasn’t ready to go home and answer questions from her kids. A somber Jason says that she deserves better than what Finn is giving to her right now, and Liz feels so do her kids. They dip their feet in the pool. Liz jokes she can’t believe she got thee Jason Morgan to take off his shoes. He coyly asks her not to tell anyone.

Liz says she wants to support Finn through his grief, but Jason says Finn is pushing her away. She asks Jason how he knew to find her at Finn’s. That’s when he reveals, their son, Jake was worried about her, so it was Jake who reached out to him.

Next, Liz thanks Jason for being here for him, listening to her and extolling some advice.  Jason says he knows he is no place to be giving advice because he left her and Sam to raise his sons all on their own.

However, Liz points out it’s not because he didn’t want to be there. On that note, she’s pretty sure he wasn’t on vacation all the years he was away from his children. Jason says he’s here now and he will do whatever he can to make things up to Jake. Liz says just showing up to help her will go a long way with Jake, as it also goes along way with her.

You can watch the heartfelt scenes between Rebecca Herbst and Steve Burton below. Liason has been trending this evening on X.  Should GH consider putting Elizabeth and Jason back together? Weigh-in via the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Gregory’s Loved Ones Gather to Say Goodbye

On the Wednesday, June 7th episode of General Hospital, it was time for Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) memorial, which as Gregory wanted would be having his ashes spread with his loved ones in attendance.

The memorial service was held at the park bench in which he used to sit and read to Violet (Jophielle Love), which now has a plaque with his name imprinted on it.

Chase (Josh Swickard) was put in charge of the gathering, by his late father. In very well-written scenes, each of the man’s loved ones and friends extolled words of wisdom they learned from him that will forever remain with them and in their hearts.

Finn (Michael Easton) shares how much his dad, who was suffering from ALS, loved this spot and that when the climb up the hill became too much, he insisted he could make it on his own. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) speaks to what a good man that Gregory was. Violet reads a poem.

Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) opens up about how ALS is a devastating disease that takes resolve to handle, and Gregory had a lot of resolve. He made her aware of the limitations she put on her own life. She admits Gregory got her to jump out of a plane with him and that the two passionately kissed, which surprised everyone in attendance.

Tracy (Jane Elliot) talks with sadness about Gregory being a missed opportunity, and if she had known him sooner, longer and better, who knows what might have been. In the moral to her time with Gregory, Tracy expressed, “If an opportunity doesn’t present itself, make one. Contrary to conventional wisdom, you can miss what you didn’t have.”

Chase spoke last and says his dad taught him to find something remarkable in every person you meet. Next, Chase begins to scatter Gregory’s ashes around the tree, and then hands the container to Finn, so he can spread the last part of the ashes.

Afterwards, Tracy hosts a reception at the Metro Court. She and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) share a shot for Gregory. Alexis tells Finn, she is heading to an AA meeting, but first they discuss the kiss with his dad. Elizabeth and her boys make their exit, and then Chase goes looking for Finn and finds him at the bar. What he sees upsets him, as Finn is knocking back shots one after the other.

What did you think about Gregory’s memorial service? Did you reach for the hankies? What do you think will happen next to Finn now that he is continuing to drink? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Nicole Has Long-Awaited Showdown With Sloan as Carlivati Writing Regime Episodes Begin Again

On the Friday, May 31st episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati promised a nod to the audience that the script they are watching came from his writing team, their first, since the writers strike.

At the beginning of today’s show, one of Carlivati’s favorite muses, Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), is sitting with his laptop saying how bad The Spectator’s writing has gotten, expressing, “No offense Everett, but the quality of the writing has really gone down hill the last couple of months. But that is about to change starting today.”

With that, the viewers finally get the long-awaited confrontation between Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sloan (Jessica Serfaty), which seemed, at first, a bit odd that Sloan snuck into the DiMera mansion to confront Nicole in the first place, when she should be on the run.

Sloan tells Nicole there’s something she has to hear. Nicole starts to call Rafe (Galen Gering) to lock her up, but Sloan stops her. She swears to Nicole she didn’t plan to kidnap Jude. Dimitri showed up with him just as she was running out of options after her adoption fell through with Eric.  “It felt like fate,” Sloan says. “I’ll show you fate,” Nicole shouts and punches Sloan’s lights out.

Nicole is mortified of what Sloan put her through and the lengths of her lies and deceit. That’s when Sloan reminds Nicole she did the exact same thing to Sami (Alison Sweeney) years ago. So, she goes on to say, because of how she stole a baby from its birth mother, maybe she can show her some grace. Nicole shouts, “Never!”

Sloan starts to make her exit as Nicole is calling the cops, and just as Sloan makes it to the doorway, Eric (Greg Vaughan) shows up. Will she tell Eric he is the biological father of baby Jude before EJ (Dan Feuerriegel)​​ returns home?

Meanwhile, outside the Brady Pub, EJ runs into Leo and Leo is on to him. He realizes something is up with Sloan and baby Jude and EJ’s part in any cover-up just as Rafe arrests Melinda  (Tina Huang) for seemingly her part of hatching the baby switch plot.

Elsewhere, Bobby (Blake Berris) has control of Everett right in front of Jada (Elia Cantu), Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), who shows up to help him. It’s now defined to everyone that Bobby is an alter that is protecting Everett from finding out something terrible that happened to him, which caused his split personality.

So, what did you think of the Nicole/Sloan baby switch showdown? Underwhelming? Great? What did you think of the first show back from the regular DAYS writing regime? Do you like how things moved? Do you not like the direction? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
