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.

Gigi and Rex try to figure out what to do about Shane. Shane explains why he never told them about the harassment. When Blair drags Jack there to apologize, Rex reveals Shane tried to commit suicide. Blair, who knows nothing about Shane’s suicide attempt, tries to get Jack to apologize to Shane, but he refuses. Tomas arrives, wondering if Blair thinks he shot Todd. Blair confesses that, because of Jack’s bullying, she feels she’s failed as a mother. Tomas tells her otherwise. After he leaves, she gets tough with Jack. Tea, her suspicion tweaked because of John, is interested when Dani tells her that Tomas had a mysterious envelope. After Tomas leaves, Tea sneaks into his room and Tomas catches her. Viki refuses Charlie’s offer to stick with her until Ryder’s custody is decided. They share a bittersweet goodbye. Starr meets Deanna and has a lot of questions for James.  Viki is forced to confirm to Clint that her marriage to Charlie is over because of his affair with Echo. Clint refrains from telling Viki that Echo knew all along Rex was his son and not Charlie’s. Clint tells Viki about Shane’s troubles with LHS bullies. Blair is upended when Rex informs that Jack’s bullying caused Shane to attempt suicide. Jack is defensive but rattled by the fallout of his reign of terror. Kelly relays to Dorian information she learned from Clint that Aubrey and Cutter are not brother and sister but conmen and lovers out to bilk the Buchanans. Dorian suggests Kelly use this information to land Joey. Kelly, though, has decided to wash her hands of the affair. Aubrey and Cutter each accuse the other of allowing Tess to wheedle her way into their plans. Tess and Ford continue to snipe at one another. Tess helps out when Ford is unable to soothe Ryder. Tess makes a move to further dismantle Viki’s pursuit of Ryder’s custody. Tess receives a visit from Cutter; the pair make no effort to conceal their attraction from Ford. Tomas catches Téa rifling through his things and is forced to explain why he has a trove of information on Todd – including a fair bit about his plastic surgery. Tomas covers and presumes that Téa’s curiosity was precipitated by a talk with suspicious John.

Dorian sees Access Llanview and gets whipped into a frenzy that charges against Clint have been dropped. Bo confronts Clint. Phyllis, on TV, says she’s about to drop a Buchanan bombshell. Clint goes to Rex to find out how Shane is doing but they end up in a huge fight with Rex resenting Clint’s suddenly caring when he did so much to reject Rex. Clint is horrified to learn Shane tried to commit suicide. Cristian visits Natalie to let her know that Marty is still carrying around her DNA test results. She tells Cris about her ending things officially with John. Phyllis mentions Cristian was seen with Rama at the prison. Marty asks John if he could change things and it turned out the baby was really his, would he forgive Natalie? Rama and Nigel indulge together in their mutual love of Phyllis Rose. But Rama is horrified when the item about her and Cristian airs.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

So, what do you think of Carly and Sonny getting close? What did you think of the performances of Laura Wright, Steve Burton, Cynthia Watros, and Donnell Turner within this episode? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Lisa Rinna makes her return as Billie Reed, but dressed undercover as kind of a Princess Gina lookalike, long hair, tiara, and all. She gets busted by Ben and Ciara and tells them she is undercover watching the amethyst in the jewelry shop that Ciara was loving on to Ben. But as they talk about Ben being a serial killer and all, someone went in and bought the jewel spoiling Billie’s plan.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Steffy’s Not Having Any of Sheila

Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful saw Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) step up to the plate and not buy whatever Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) was selling, and is horrified what her new hubby, Finn (Tanner Novlan) and his father, Jack (Ted King) pulled behind her back.

Therefore, Steffy put them all on blast and with that came another powerful performance by two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.

In story, Steffy decided not to take her business trip.  So, she comes home to find Sheila holding baby Hayes and begins to freak out, and wouldn’t you?  After all, this is evil Sheila we are talking about who has kidnapped babies before!

Jack tries to explain their way out of it, that Sheila promised to see Finn and her grandson Hayes and hold him, and then she would leave town. Throughout all of the scenes, Finn looked like he realized his marriage could have just hit the rocks before it even got started.

Steffy cannot believe that no one is not seeing through Sheila’s epic manipulations.  She wisely points out that, why did Sheila come out of nowhere when he wed a Forrester to finally reveal herself to him as his bio-mom?  Sheila tries to make Steffy understand mother-to-mother why she wanted to see her son and hold her grandson, and Steffy is becoming more unglued, rightly pointing out what Sheila did to her mother and grandmother … she shot them both! Sheila says Steffy has a narrow perspective of how her grandmother treated her.

Next, Steffy just can’t listen to this anymore, or have Sheila in their home and near their child one more second.  Steffy then lays into Sheila, and says she hopes her son doesn’t have Sheila’s “sickness” and tells her she’s getting a restraining order against her and she will never see Finn and Hayes ,or come near her family.

Sheila thinks it’s very cruel of Steffy to threaten her with time in the slammer for wanting to see her son.  Steffy orders Sheila to leave and Jack as well, since he is the one that set this in motion.  Steffy tells Sheila she’s a monster with no feelings!  Since Sheila won’t start to exit, Steffy walks over to her and bitch-slaps her yelling: “Don’t you ever try to take someone I love away from me. Get out!!”

Jack drags Sheila out and Steffy glares and Finn! Ruh-roh!

So, what did you think of the performances of Jacqueline MacInnes Wood and Kimberlin Brown in the major confrontation scenes? What will Sheila do next? What will happen to Finn and Steffy? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out the final moments of Friday’s Steffy vs. Sheila below!
