Viki, Noelle, Moe, Rex and Shane all go to the diner for the pie-off, and everyone bonds over their memories of Gigi…while Cutter and “Stacy” wake up in each other’s arms. She later looks through the window of the Bon Jour to see her family and friends gathered in her honor, and is deeply moved. The judge of the pie contest is none other than Professor Delbert Fina, Jr., son of the famous time travel researcher who helped Gigi and Rex find each other when he was trapped in 1968.  Everyone goes to the airport to return to Llanview, but the plane is oversold.  One of them has to volunteer to take the next plane. Rex looks in the Professor’s book and sees an important message. “Stacy” meets Prof. Fina, confides she came to Paris, Texas, hoping to find something here, but she gave up. The Professor tells her his motto. When Cutter returns, Stacy is gone.  EOD, she comes face to face with Rex. Clint confides his dilemma in Natalie.  Natalie is of course on Viki’s side. Clint accuses her of being as stubborn as Viki. Natalie says Jessica helped her see she was being unreasonable about John, she wants to tell him she still loves him, but he’s been dodging her calls. She decides she’ll go talk to him in person. Kim comes to Clint to find out if he’s made up his mind, chosen between her and Viki.  Clint’s still uncertain.  Kim plants a big kiss on him just as Viki returns home. John’s at the hospital to take Tea home. She’s still pushing him about the Todd investigation, he reminds her to keep her stress levels down, let him handle it. She asks him about Natalie, calls him on evading talking about his relationship. Todd comes in on Tea and John talking about him, and he expresses sympathy to Tea over her scare with the baby. Tea, on edge, because she knows Todd’s guilty, loses it with him. Her hostility unsettles him. Shane calls Neela, reminds her he still needs Jack’s confession.  Neela’s surprised Jack’s working for Todd now. Todd makes progress getting his relationship with Jack on a better footing, treats him and Neela to a lavish lunch in his office. Neela/Jack grow closer. He kisses her, and by EOD, is about to unburden himself to her about a secret he’s been holding in for a long time as Neela’s tape recorder rolls.

Rex encounters “Stacy” and lets her have it about her plan to take Gigi’s place.  She swears she remembers nothing. He’s affected by having someone who’s a ringer for Gigi standing right in front of him – and this makes him even more furious.  Cutter interrupts.  At EOD, he’s about to do the right thing and tell them the truth about “Stacy.” After getting Neela’s reassurance that Jack can trust her, Jack spills the whole story about his part in Gigi’s death while Neela secretly tapes him.  He is genuinely sorry and breaks down. Shane finds Aubrey decorating his and Rex’s house for Christmas.  Aubrey’s disappointed to discover that Rex volunteered to get bumped from the flight home.  They have a heart-to-heart during which Aubrey assures Shane she isn’t trying to take Gigi’s place.  Shane reveals to her that he’s hoping to give Dad the best gift ever: justice for Gigi.  He tells her about his and Neela’s collaboration to get Jack to confess. Aubrey opens a box of Christmas decorations from Rex’s storage – and finds Gigi’s Christmas stocking. Viki walks in on Kim and Clint’s kiss.  She witnesses a second kiss, and then stumbles out only to run into entering David.  She asks him to get her out of there.  He takes her away and she pours out her story.  David insists she’s better off without Clint.  She’s genuinely hurt, really thought she and Clint had a chance.  He comforts her. Meanwhile, Clint tells Kim how he really feels.

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.”

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.

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?
