Natalie, having caught John with the baby’s sonogram, tears it up, exploding at him because he can’t have it both ways. He tells her she’s made it impossible to come home, and anyway the father is Brody. She gives him back the engagement ring and exits with Brody. Marty runs into Vimal who’s waiting for Rama at Statesville. Vimal questions why Marty spent so much time in the genetics lab the night he switched the DNA results. Marty, leaving, drops the real DNA results for Natalie and grabs it before Cris can see it. Rama continues to lie to Vimal that she’s pregnant and Vimal tweaks Cris by saying something about Rama’s “delicate condition.” Tess and Cutter get steamy in the steam room until Ford enters. Ford orders Cutter to get his hands off his wife and threatens to tell Aubrey, Joey and Brody that Cutter is messing around with Tess. Cutter calls his bluff, saying he could blow the custody case sky high by exposing that Ford and Tess’ union isn’t a real marriage. Ford agrees he won’t tell anyone if Tess and Cutter decide to be together. Joey and Kelly have a huge fight over her relationship with John,   in Aubrey’s presence. Kelly stomps off and Aubrey, upset, asks Joey if he’s sorry he married her. Langston accuses Dorian of hiring Markko to direct David’s movie to get him back together with her. Langston and Markko agree they can work together, as upstairs Dorian and David make love, mull casting decisions, and agree that they can weather a long distance romance.

Deanna has spent the night at James’ apartment. When James talks about the way Deanna dumped him, she reveals things weren’t what they seemed. Before she can elaborate, Starr shows up. When Joey seeks Viki’s marital advice, Viki is forced to confess the state of her own marriage. Charlie visits Echo and assures her that although he’ll stick by Viki while Ryder’s custody is being decided, he will be solely Echo’s thereafter for an out-in-the-open, honest relationship. Echo has a guilty pang, having lied to Charlie about his paternity of Rex. Charlie returns home and is forced to admit to Viki that he’s in love with Echo. Having gotten on to Aubrey and Cutter’s scam, Tess agrees to keep quiet if they cut her in on their action. Tess reveals that although Cutter is with Aubrey, she has no intention of letting him go. Kelly visits Clint for an interview about his release from jail, but the discussion turns to her relationship with Joey. Clint tells Kelly the tape he made had proof that Aubrey and Cutter were lovers out to rip off Joey. Without the tape, he suggests he and Kelly find a way to “help” Joey discover the truth about his wife.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope To Steffy, “I’m Taking My Daughter & Don’t You Dare Try To Stop Me”

The next key revelation of the baby switch; that devastated the lives of Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton), but gave Steffy a baby to raise and a sister to Kelly, began to unravel on Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

Now that Hope knows for sure that Beth is alive and has been living as “Phoebe” under Steffy’s care, it was time to lower the boom on Steffy.  So, at the cliff house, a distraught Steffy refuses at first to believe the truth.  She says, “That baby can’t be Beth … she’s Phoebe!”

Liam (Scott Clifton) tells Steffy that he and Hope can do whatever genetic testing is necessary to prove it to her, but that it will indeed come back and prove that they are the biological parents to the little girl.   As they explain the events that led to Steffy ‘adopting’ Beth, she learns from Liam and Hope that Dr. Buckingham sold their baby for a gambling debt and how Steffy’s mom, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) was unknowingly buying their baby to give to her.

Hope says she cannot wait to take little Beth home, and how grateful she is that Steffy took such good care of her daughter all of these months.  Then, Steffy blurts out: “You’re not taking my daughter from the only home she’s ever known.  I’m her mommy.”  Steffy tries to use the reasoning that if Hope takes Phoebe away, she will be ripping her from the only home she has ever known.  Hope. who is becoming more frustrated and upset with Steffy says, “Her name is Beth.”  She then informs Steffy that she and Liam will let her help out with the transition.

Steffy starts to have a meltdown as she realizes that the little girl is really Beth.  Next, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive on the scene.  Steffy defies Hope and tells her again, “There’s no way you’re taking my daughter home.”  Brooke reminds her and everyone in the room that there was nothing legal about the adoption, while Ridge tries to make everyone understand how Steffy is also blindsided.  Steffy continues on how she is the only mother Beth knows, and the cliff house as her home.

A steadfast Hope tells Steffy in no uncertain terms she is now with her, her real mother, who she should have been with since the day she was born.  Hope tells Steffy again how grateful she is to her … but she firmly tells her, “I’m taking my daughter, and don’t you dare try to stop me.”  We fade to black.

So, do you hope Hope just walks right on out with Beth?  Do you think Steffy will go so far as to fight for custody? Take off with Beth and runaway? Share your thoughts om what you think will happen next via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Franco Wake Up As Drew & Become The Next Victim Of Mind-Mapping?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, picked up from the major plot twist; and unfortunately for Franco (Roger Howarth), even with the arrival of Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) to save the day; according to Dr. Cabot (Time Winters), the mind-mapping transfer could not be stopped.  And as the men were all bantering and arguing about, the download into Franco’s brain was fully completed.  Then, Cabot tells Drew that when Franco wakes up, it will be with the memories of Drew dating back to 2012.

Now the questions are, did the procedure work?  Will Franco awake from this nightmare with the history and personality of Drew, or could Dr, Cabot’s experiment be a bust on him?  Next. Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Chase (Josh Swickard) show-up.  Liz is heartsick to begin to learn what happened in the warehouse to her son, Cameron (William Lipton) and her husband.  Chase arrests Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but he also goes to GH to get medical attention for his wounds from the fight with Drew and Curtis.

Once, Franco is taken to General Hospital still unconscious, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) is on the medical case and gets him a neurological work-up.  Lucas then has to stitch up Shiloh, who continually throws jabs at the good doc about Wiley.   Then in a bit of foreshadowing, Dr. Cabot tells Drew, that he will thank him once Franco wakes up with Drew’s memories.  Does that mean that Drew could have done some horrible things in his past … or that Shiloh will leave Drew alone, because what he needs is inside Franco’s brain now? Drew hopes his memories stay buried.

In heartbreaking scenes, and in touching performances from William Lipton and Rebecca Herbst; as well as Billy Miller, Cam tells his mother about Franco’s last words to him to,  ‘Tell your mom I love her and that I’ll be back”.   Liz learns how Franco protected her son, and traded places with him. Next, Liz sits by an unconscious Franco, and in tears, thanks him for keeping Cameron safe, but laments that it would be a far less wonderful world without Franco in it, and begs him to come back to her, and what a hero he is for what he did saving her son.

In addition, Cameron gives Drew a key piece of Intel he learned during his kidnapping and while the mind-mapping procedure on Franco was taking place.  Shiloh is looking for a specific memory that would allow him to disappear, and that is why he is so determined to get inside Drew’s head from back in the day, by any means possible!  When Cameron sees Shiloh being taken away by Chase, he runs at him but is stopped by Drew. Cameron threatens a snide and laughing Shiloh that he will, “Make him pay.”  Uh-oh!  Is a murder mystery on the way, too?  Drew tries to talk down Cameron.
