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.

Starr is surprised to see Markko, and even more surprised when she learns Langston is leaving to write David’s movie. The best friends recall highlights of their relationship. 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

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?

Oh Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang)! How were you going to explain away this one?  On Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, surrounded by the people she loves, and her arch nemesis Quinn (Rena Sofer), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge’s (Thorsten Kaye) recommitment soiree’ goes bust, when Ridge and company get an eyeful on Ridge’s iPad during his picture montage of his time with Brooke, only sequestered within it, thanks to Quinn, is the footage of Bill (Don Diamont) and Brooke’s recent kiss!

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!
