The man with Todd’s original face is about to make contact with Viki when he spies her with the other Todd. Natalie tells Jessica that she and Brody have become a couple. Jessica slaps Natalie in front of Viki. Viki alerts Jessica to the fact that Bree has witnessed the confrontation. Jessica leaves to see to her daughter, and Natalie leaves for the police station, where John is questioning Brody about the tape recorder, found on Gigi’s person at the time of her death and lately missing from the evidence room. Brody produces the tape recorder and covers the reason it is in his possession. The tape is played – but it’s blank. Natalie finds the tape recorder and remembers it as the item she and Marty fought over prior to her falling over the roof of the Angel Square Hotel. Natalie seems to be on the verge of remembering everything when John returns and Natalie’s memories of the incident disappear, but she questions John about the tape recorder. John suggests Natalie look to Brody for answers. Dorian threatens David with the gun Ionia sent. Dorian believes David was meant to use it to kill her. Their confrontation is cut short when they discover a body in the bushes – Agent Kent, dead. David assumes Dorian killed the man and calls the police. John and Brody arrive and quickly ascertain that Dorian could not have killed the man. Dorian gets back at David by alerting John and Brody to the gun and note. John and Brody don’t have enough evidence to arrest David, who is nonetheless sent packing by Dorian. Todd confides in Jack his secret knowledge that John doesn’t know Liam is his son. The secret they share draws the two closer. Todd assigns Jack the task of looking into Origami Cogs, the shadowy company that stole his satellite out from under him. Meanwhile, Echo overhears Rex plotting revenge against Todd and Jack by hurting Blair and Téa. Rex covers and diverts Echo by cluing her into his scheme to hit Todd in the wallet with a new subsidiary he’s created: Origami Cogs. Rex explains that the name of the company is an anagram for Gigi Morasco. Blair and Téa tell Starr about their disastrous attempt to share their grief over Gigi’s death with Rex. Starr warns Blair that Jack isn’t her only problem. Sam has been acting weird, too. The trio discuss Sam’s new imaginary friend, which seems innocuous enough to Téa – until she finds out the friend wears a conspicuous characteristic on his face: A scar.

The man with Todd’s original face sneaks into Todd’s office and tries to find out more about Todd, but he’s interrupted. He prepares to strike thinking Todd is coming in– and ends up hitting Jack instead. Todd comes in and the man with Todd’s original face hides. Todd thinks he knows who’s responsible for this. Bo probes Rex’s reasons for trading Gigi’s heart for Clint’s assets. Rex reveals his anger at everyone who covered up for Jack. Bo tries to get him to open up, but Rex shuts down and kicks Bo out. Rex, alone, allows his grief to surface. Natalie presses Brody about the tape recorder and John joins in. Brody gets defensive, which makes John suspicious. When Baz finds Starr looking at an old photo of herself and Todd, he questions her. She explains about Todd’s plastic surgery. He probes further and she reveals that she’s troubled about Sam’s imaginary friend who has “a line on his face.” Blair walks in on Dorian evicting David. When Dorian tells her what’s happened, she mentions the dead body found by the pool. Blair connects this to Sam and vows to talk to him about it. Viki and Todd try to figure out who broke the photo of him. David interrupts, blaming Viki for his problems with Dorian. Viki promises to help him find out who set him up.

Todd wants to make love to Tea but things are still tense regarding Jack. Tomas and Baz spar over music. Dani is distracted because of Nate and neither kid will eat the breakfast Tomas prepared. Tomas goes up to summon Tea for breakfast and sees Todd grab Tea angrily. He tells Todd to take his hands off Tea. Tea leaves them to argue, and the subject of their secret deal comes up. They both threaten that each has secrets that the other could expose. Baz overhears and later Tomas tells Tea that he has something to tell her about Todd. James and Starr have a romantic interlude by the pool. Baz tells Starr that there’s something up between her father and his. Nate blows off Dani on the phone when Rick finds him at the Buenos Dias and pressures him about being in the porno. Meanwhile Deanna is meeting her lawyer about getting info about her mother, but she still doesn’t have enough money. When Rick goes out to get a call, Nate tells Deanna that he told Dani he knows she knows that Matthew killed his father. Nate tells Rick he’ll do the porno but not Deanna. Rick may have leverage over Nate but not Deanna. Rick reveals he now owns the lawyer’s file on her mother. Bo and Nora are bereft that Matthew’s in the Philadelphia facility. Nora obsesses on figuring out who might have hurt Matthew. They realize the house hasn’t been cleaned since Matthew got hurt and they find a gum wrapper they can’t identify. We see Nate chewing the same gum. Destiny freaks out when Vivian mentions a teen pregnancy group she’s working with. Vivian gets twigged, while Shaun assumes she’s just upset because of Matthew. After Shaun leaves, Vivian gently prods and Destiny starts to sense nervously that Vivian’s guessing the truth. She runs to Dani and is about to confess the truth that she’s pregnant. Ford comes over with visitation papers. Jessica is hostile at first but warms up and asks him what he loved about Tess and they bond slightly.

Blair takes Sam to the police station in the hope she’ll be able to put to rest the issue of his imaginary friend. It’s her belief that Sam’s mysterious conversation partner is the unidentified man (Kent) who turned up dead on the grounds of La Boulaie. Sam confirms that he knows the dead man, but not that he is the imaginary friend. The dead man, in fact, tried to kill Sam. But Sam’s friend, the man with the line on his face, saved him. Elsewhere, Tomas forces Todd to apologize to Téa for his behavior. Todd and Tomas agree that they are at a stalemate and must continue with their tense truce. Baz tells Starr about the conversation he overheard between Todd and Tomas. Starr provides Baz with more information about his father, including his CIA connection. Baz is driven to learn more. The Mannings gather at Todd’s house to celebrate Sam’s birthday. However, the entertainment is late. He’s been detained by the man with Todd’s original face, who plans to infiltrate the party in a superhero costume. Rick has obtained information on Deanna’s mother but will only relinquish it in exchange for her performance in a porn. Nate and Deanna feel compelled to do as Rick asks. At Todd’s house, Dani tells Destiny that Nate knows Matthew killed Eddie, and also that he told Deanna. Dani assures Destiny that neither Nate nor Deanna will squeal. Destiny spots Nate and Deanna leaving the Buenos Dias and overhears their plan to rendezvous at the Minuteman.

Dressed as a superhero, the man with Todd’s original face infiltrates Sam’s birthday party, covertly interacting with Todd, Blair, Tea and their children as well as Tomas and Baz. Sam’s family plans to surprise him with a cake, but they discover Sam gone. Meanwhile, the man with Todd’s original face ushers Sam into a motel room, where Sam discovers the super hero is the line-faced man everyone else presumes to be his imaginary friend. Natalie delivers to John the results of the fingerprint analysis done on the dead body found by Dorian’s pool. The results yield an encrypted file, similar to the one the CIA had on Tomas as well as the one found in Todd’s possession. John puts together that all three men have some connection to pre-reconstructed Todd Manning. Destiny is forced to tell Dani that Nate lied about having to work a double shift and instead went off to a motel room with Deanna. At the motel, Rick starts to direct Nate and Deanna in their first porn scene, just as Dani shows up at the door. David forces Viki to make good on her promise to find out who’s been trying to destroy his relationship with Dorian. Viki realizes the perpetrator may be after Dorian, not David, and quickly comes up with Echo’s name. Meanwhile, unable to resist the temptation to gloat about Dorian’s failing relationship with David, tipsy Echo visits Dorian and overplays her hand, leading Dorian to come to the same conclusion that Echo has been setting up David. Viki agrees to join David while he tells Dorian about the Echo theory, but when they show up at the pool, they find evidence that Dorian was there, but no Dorian.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Quinn Walks Out on Carter Leaving Him Devastated

Monday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured a stand-out performance by Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) as after Carter professed his love for Quinn (Rena Sofer) and asked her to run away with him, only she put on the brakes!

Quinn tells him that she loves her husband, Eric (John McCook), and is going back to him and can’t run away with him, although that prospect sounds enticing. She goes on to say that she has built a life for herself with Eric and she is not willing to give it up.

Carter is devastated.  He believed what they had was so special that they could get through anything – mind you, the two have been having an affair (OK’s by Eric at this point, because of his ED), and she is a married woman.

Following their heart-to-heart, Quinn walks out on Carter determined to make her marriage work.  Meanwhile, Katie (Heather Tom), who had just told Bill, (Don Diamont) she won’t give their relationship another chance, heads to Carter’s to give him a piece of her mind on his fling with Quinn, and how he could do that to Eric!

Following her tirade, she gets quite the surprise, when Carter admits to Katie that he loves Quinn.  Katie is stopped in her tracks.  We fade to black.

Many have been suspecting that Katie and Carter will actually become the next couple on B&B.   Do you think the two will begin a relationship? What did you think of Lawrence Saint-Victor’s performance in the episode? Are you rooting for Quinn to come back to Carter? Let us know via the comment section, but first check out a pivotal scene between Heather Tom and Saint-Victor from the episode below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
