Todd and Tea are hugely relieved to learn that Danielle is safe at Starr’s apartment.  Danielle agrees to talk to Tea but refuses to have anything to do with Todd, who’s left devastated by her rejection.  Tea tries to explain her feelings for Todd to Danielle.  Danielle convinces Tea to let her stay at Starr’s for a while.  Starr advises Todd to give Danielle the time and space she needs.  Blair lets Ford know she’s wise to his game after catching him kissing Langston.  Natalie’s therapy session with Marty soon dissolves into a heated conversation about John.  Brody and Viki panic when they suspect one of Mitch’s minions has kidnapped Jessica.  Meanwhile, John is powerless to do anything to help find Jessica as he’s being held at the police station by Lowell.  Natalie vows to help John escape from jail.  Kim sets out to seduce Clint and is well on her way of doing so when Nora interrupts them with the news of Jessica’s kidnapping.  Stacy, meanwhile, is frustrated when her attempt to get closer to Rex comes to a screeching halt when Bo arrives to break the news about Jessica.  Gigi’s moved when Schuyler surprises her with a romantic dinner but their evening is cut short as well when Rex informs them Jessica is missing.  Rex and Gigi decide to send Shane to the Buchanan ranch in Texas with Bo and Nora for his own safety.  Viki and Clint take Bo’s advice and decide to send Bree to the ranch as well.  Gigi and Rex share an emotional goodbye with Shane.  Stacy is desperate for Schuyler to get her the oxytocin she needs to induce early labor.  Rachel and Greg are forced to put their romantic interlude on hold.

Brody gets a potential lead on Jessica’s whereabouts after having the letter Mitch sent her analyzed at the lab.  Jessica finds herself Mitch’s captive in his hideout and is horrified to realize he plans on taking Stacy’s baby.  Jessica is further sickened when Mitch explains she’s going to mother Stacy’s baby as her own, claiming the baby is the “chosen one.”  Charlie vows to kill Mitch after learning he had Jessica kidnapped.  Charlie comes face to face with Viki when he returns to Llanfair.  Schuyler passes the point of no return when he forges a requisition form and gets the oxytocin for Stacy.  Brody assures Natalie that he and John already have a plan in place to break John out of jail.  Marty admits to Dr. Levin she’s concerned that John and Natalie could get back together.  Stacy insists to Fish that he isn’t the father of her baby when he questions her again. Jessica, still fighting the influence of the sedatives Mitch has injected her with, reels as Mitch outlines his plans for her and Stacy’s unborn baby.  Before once again succumbing to the drugs, Jessica insists she’ll never forget her family or do Mitch’s bidding but he’s not going to take no for an answer. Schuyler forces Stacy to name him as the baby’s guardian should anything happen to her and insists on administering the oxytocin himself when she fakes going into labor.  Dorian comes up with an idea on how to get to Mitch after an encounter with Rex.  Charlie tries to reach out to Viki but the moment is ruined when he suddenly leaves to secretly meet with Dorian. John and Brody embark on their risky mission to break John out of jail but it appears as though their plan may have taken an unexpected turn.  Mitch has no reservations about resorting to heinous measures to get what he wants from Jessica.  Dorian tells Charlie they’re going to use Stacy to get to Mitch.  Danielle continues to refuse to have anything to do with Todd.  Tea goes to see Danielle and tells her she’s made arrangements to enroll her at Llanview High.  Stacy fakes going into labor after making some headway with Rex when she wonders if there’s any chance there could ever be anything more between them.            

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”?

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!
