Brenda tries to convince Dante of Sonny’s innocence in the car bomb case. Sonny pursues Brenda further only to have her reiterate that they have no future. Spinelli reveals that the Balkan has gone out of his way to be invisible even on cyberspace. Luke meets with Jason to talk about the Balkan. Brenda asks Jason to help keep her away from Sonny and breaks down emotionally. In only her underwear, Lisa appears to Patrick in the GH locker room. Lisa continues to push Robin’s buttons, and Robin slaps her. Robin incriminates herself with Steve when she thinks Lisa has told on her. After having sex, Siobhan convinces Lucky to take her with him to find Brenda and they discover she is in Port Charles. Luke asks Carly for a favor – a room at the Metro Court until Tracy takes him back. Ethan tells Luke about being beat-up by Johnny’s men loaned to the Balkan because of his father’s international activities with “Ronan O’Reilly.” Mayor Floyd asks Ronnie to do whatever it takes to push Dante off the police force. Conflicted over his past decisions, Dante takes out his guilt on Michael. Brenda finds herself close in a kiss with Sonny and breaks away, demanding that Sonny go away. Sonny decides to give Brenda space, but he is not giving up on them. After discussing with Luke, Jason updates Sonny on Brenda’s status with the Balkan. Brenda calls Robin and begs her to help keep Sonny away. Jason and Sam get passionate, but Sam refuses to have sex with Jason in the same apartment with Brenda. Ordered to kill Siobhan by the Balkan’s men, Lucky bluffs to save their lives. Later, Lucky insists Siobhan come back to Port Charles with him for their safety and to keep up their cover to the Balkan. Steve comes to Lisa’s defense with Patrick, who argues that Lisa is as crazy as ever. Lisa takes a room at the Metro court on the same floor as Patrick. Ronnie warns Dante that Mayor Floyd has it in for him.

Carly once again challenges Jax on his feelings for Brenda, only to discover he is remodeling the Metro Court to accommodate an apartment for Brenda. Michael admits that he finds Brenda attractive. Charmed by Brook Lynn, Nik continues to pay her to be his social escort to events. Epiphany warns Robin that if she keeps lashing out at Lisa, the crazy stick is going to point at her and no one else. Considering Lisa’s impeccable hospital record so far, Steve doubts Lisa is guilty.  Robin freaks when she thinks Lisa is messing with her patients. Tracy tells Luke she’ll consider marrying him if he returns her $10 million. Ethan concocts a plan to get his father back into Tracy’s good graces. Carly revels telling Claire that Brenda dumped Sonny. Claire asks Dante to investigate Brenda’s background for her personal reasons. Spinelli comes to Maxie and Lulu’s defense when Kate lays into them for not getting Brenda on the cover of Crimson.

Both Jason and Suzanne separately press Brenda to reveal the truth behind the Balkan’s attack on her, but Brenda refuses. Carly plants a passionate kiss on Jason to incite jealousy from Jax. Robin falsely accuses Lisa and starts to spin out of control as Lisa hoped she would. Robin confides in Maxie and then attacks Patrick for the end of their marriage. Just as Ethan and Maya kiss, Luke collapses in front of Tracy, convincingly feigning a heart attack. Ronnie sympathizes with Dante but tells him to focus on convicting Sonny. Sonny and Claire arrive for dinner at Chez Loire – each having received an invitation from the other in a setup.

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.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

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.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.
