Sam’s family realizes Sam’s missing from his birthday party. They discover a groggy unmasked super hero. Todd and Tomas put aside their differences and rough him up, demanding to know what he did with Sam. The super hero explains that he was knocked out and didn’t see who did it. Blair calls John who arrives with Natalie. They theorize that the man who took Sam must’ve been the same guy who killed Kent. For the first time Tomas hears about the murder – and that Sam identified his imaginary friend as Todd with his old face. Todd misses out on the info because the kidnapper calls and arranges to meet with him. Todd is forced to cover to Tea about the call and quickly leaves. Todd finds himself face-to-face with the man with Todd’s original face. Before Blair calls, John and Natalie get another clue to the puzzle of the man with Todd’s original face. While investigating Sam’s disappearance, he makes it clear to incredulous Natalie that that there could very well be two Todd Mannings. The man with Todd’s original face play pretends he and Sam are on a mission to protect themselves. He keeps Sam occupied with the gifts he stole from the party. Dani’s knocking on Rick’s motel room door just as Deanna and Nate are about to begin filming their sex scene. Rick gets rid of Dani. Nate and Deanna do as Rick asks. Rick promises to keep Nate’s secret about having hurt Matthew, and he gives Deanna the info she needs to find her mother. Nora tells Destiny about the possible evidence she and Bo found at their place which they think might lead them to the identity of the person who hurt Matthew. Destiny is about to tell Nora she’s pregnant when Dani interrupts. Rama finds Vimal to congratulate him on his new job. He is tempted to tell her about the secret Todd confided in him: that Liam is John’s son.

Todd and the man with Todd’s original face come face to face. The man with Todd’s original face demands answers. The man with Todd’s original face mentions Baker and Kent, and we see a moment of recognition in Todd, who wants him to let Sam go. The man with Todd’s original face pulls a gun on Todd and marches him out to go see what Tea and Blair and Viki have to say. Natalie and John question whether there could be two Todd Mannings. Natalie looks for forensic evidence, and later finds a hair on the real super hero that doesn’t match that on his head. John confronts Tomas about the encrypted file that turned up when the dead Kent’s prints were run. Tomas insists he knows nothing about it. Blair presses Tomas to say something if he knows something about Sam but insists he doesn’t. Jack finally reveals he was attacked in the office. Before John can react, Dani comes in and reveals she thought she heard Sam’s voice at the Minute Man. John and cops show up there but, there’s no sign of Sam – only part of the super hero costume, etc. Echo panics, having kidnapped Dorian without quite meaning to. Dorian’s escape attempt is foiled. Echo is almost about to do something desperate to get rid of but Sam, hearing Dorian’s scream, bursts in dressed as a super hero. Dorian is stunned to realize the super hero is Sam. Viki tries to keep David from going hysterical with worry over Dorian. Dani’s about to leave the BA when Deanna and Nate come in. Nate lies and says Deanna was meeting a lawyer about her mother. Dani apologizes and Nate feels guilty and hopes Dani never finds out about the porno they just made.

John, in search of Sam, bursts into the Minute Man Motel room. Sam isn’t there, but evidence of the man with Todd’s original face is. Meanwhile, at Todd’s house, the man with Todd’s original face, bent on coercing the truth about what he believes to be his stolen life, marches Todd at gunpoint right up to the door of his own house. But before he can reveal them to the family inside, they are set upon by Baker and one of his agents. The man with Todd’s original face accuses Todd of being Baker’s cohort. Todd clearly recognizes Baker, who plays dumb about their mysterious connection in front of the man with Todd’s original face. The man with Todd’s original face threatens to kill Todd but is thwarted by the arrival of a second agent. Baker takes the man with Todd’s original face into custody as Todd demands to know what is going on. Baker refuses to enlighten Todd, simply assuring him that he’ll never see the man with Todd’s original face again. Téa nearly catches Todd with Baker. Meanwhile, Blair continues to worry about Sam’s whereabouts. Baz questions Tomas about his connections to Todd and all the goings-on. On the docks, Baker shoots the man with Todd’s original face and rolls him into the water. Baker makes a call to his unidentified controller to say that the man with Todd’s original face is dead. John examines evidence left in the man with Todd’s original face’s room, including Kent’s ID and phone, as well as a computer, complete with its search history indicating an interest in Todd Manning. John locates Sam in another Minute Man room with Dorian and Echo. John returns with Sam, providing the family with a happy reunion. John informs the Mannings that Sam claims the man behind super hero mask is the man with the line on his face. Natalie enters and brings David and Viki up to speed on the situation with missing Sam. Her update is interrupted by Dorian’s arrival. She tells David and Viki of her kidnapping by Echo and subsequent rescue. David and Dorian clear the air and renew their love. Later, Natalie divulges to Viki the oddity surrounding the identity of Sam’s no-longer imaginary friend. Joey shows up at La Boulaie on a pretense; his true mission is to spend time with Kelly.

John’s reading of Vimal’s letter telling him he’s Liam’s father is pre-empted when Rex arrives demanding Echo’s release from jail. With so much evidence against her, John refuses and Rex reminds him he let Jack Manning go free despite having killed Gigi. John is concerned about the lengths to which Rex will go for revenge, having figured out Origami Cogs, the company that scooped Todd, is an anagram for Gigi Morasco. Rex tries to go over John’s head and appeals to Bo for Echo’s release, despite the fact that Echo’s kidnap victim was Bo’s son’s wife. Bo is asked to choose between Rex, who he has treated as a son, and his own biological son David. Upset by seeing Brody, Natalie and Liam as a happy little family, Jessica suggests Natalie move out of Llanfair and in with Brody at the Angel Sq. Hotel, then bitterly warns Brody that Natalie still loves John and would be with him if Liam were his. After Brody leaves, the sisters’ fight escalates until it’s broken up by Ford. Ford comforts Jessica and when he asks her to join him and Ryder during his scheduled visit, she accepts. When John is away from his desk, Brody accidentally finds Vimal’s letter. Shaken to learn that someone else knows the truth that he’s not Liam’s father, he takes the letter seeks out Vimal. Meanwhile, John is troubled when the papers on his desk seem to have been rearranged. Vimal’s parents arrive from India and look forward to seeing their pregnant daughter-in-law. Panicking, Vimal asks Rama to pretend they’re still happily married. Kelly and Joey wake up together but their bliss is interrupted by Dorian, who has been happily reunited with David and invites them to the gala premiere of his movie. She later meets up with David and the happy couple extend the same invitation to Bo and Nora. Although not invited to the gala premiere, Cutter and Aubrey have plans to attend.

The man with Todd’s original face awakens to find a homeless man has fished him out of the water. He was spared by a bullet-proof vest he had the foresight to don before meeting with Todd. The homeless man is a sometime informant and convinces the man with Todd’s original face to call John McBain. John and the man with Todd’s original face come face-to-face. After John expresses concern that someone has messed with the papers on his desk, John and Natalie go over new evidence. When the DNA analysis of the hair Natalie found comes back as Todd’s, they wonder what it means. John’s informant line rings with an intriguing call from the man with Todd’s original face who id’s himself only as the super hero. John goes to meet him. Brody tries strong-arming Vimal into promising to keep the secret about Liam. When that doesn’t work, Brody pleads on an emotional level, which Vimal understands. Vimal, however, is noncommittal. He promises only to think about it. Brody returns to Natalie who asks if he tampered with anything on John’s desk. Brody lies, says he didn’t, but he is clearly troubled – and worried Vimal might tell the truth about Liam. Todd and Blair fete Sam with a day of his own in which they have to do whatever he wants them to do. He gets his dad riled up when he talks glowingly of the man with Todd’s original face. While everyone gets ready for Sam’s special lunch at the Buenos Dias Cafe, Todd probes about the man with Todd’s original face, but Sam has few answers.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Tells The Men To Get Out If They Are There for the Wrong Reasons

So, let’s be real here.  Do you seriously think all of the men vying for Katie’s heart on this season’s The Bachelorette, or going onto a dating-reality show, are all just looking for love without realizing the fame, attention and instagram followers that will accrue due to their appearance on the long-running competition series? With that said, some men profess they are on the show searching for love, while others are on the show are there for “the wrong reasons” – i.e. searching for fame.

Katie Thurston had her fill of the “wrong reasons’ on Monday night’s episode of the series, after contestants Aaron and Cody went at it in a mud-wrestling match that turned dirtier than just rolling around in the muck.  Later, Katie pulls Aaron aside where he he reveals that he knows Cody from San Diego, and know he has a questionable character, especially from his social media postings.  Aaron believes Cody just came on to the show to become famous. When Katie then confronts Cody about this, he is pretty unfazed and matter-of-fact and emotionless.  Next up, she boots Cody from the show.

After Katie hits an emotional bottom, she gathers herself together for the evening’s cocktail chats and smooches, and as she is feeling good again, Karl decides to confuse her and tells her that their may be other men in the house who are there for the “wrong reasons”. That prompts Katie to have her episode ‘drop the mic’ moment where she tells the guys that ,”if they are not here for the right reasons to get the ‘f***” out!”  The men are pissed at Karl for stirring things up with nothing to back up his accusations with and Katie is left (as we fade to black) in a puddle of tears.

BUT, before that there were some other watershed moments within the episode. During her one-on-one ‘wilderness date’ with Greg, Katie opened up to him about the death of her father.  Later, when they sat down for their evening date, Greg revealed his father died, and then it was his turn to be overcome, revealing how difficult it was to leave his mom, who was still grieving to come be a part of The Bachelorette season, and to vie for Katie’s heart. But these two clearly have a very strong connection leading people to wonder if Greg will get the final rose.

Earlier, during the awkward – “prove to Katie how sexy you are in bed, or how you will take care of her in bed” – or something like that, Mike the virgin cried during his testimonials as to how he would get up in front of her and the other men with his presentation when he is a virgin.  Mike decided to go with the honest approach and wrote a poem for Katie about how he would love her while basically admitting he was a virgin, as she sat on the bed on the stage with him. He won the award in the sex competition.  OK? OK!

So, who do you think is the frontrunner for Katie’s heart? Is anyone on this show there to truly fall-in-love and get engaged??? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!
