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.

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.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas’ Wedding Plans Go Bust

If you caught last week’s Thursday and Friday episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, you know that Thomas and Zoe’s nuptials took centerstage with a dramatic fallout that will continue today on Monday and have ramifications for the story moving forward.

For Thomas, he was betting on that Hope’s love for his son, Douglas, will bring her down the stairs, interrupt his nuptials to Zoe, and that he will somehow guilt-trip Hope into marrying him.  Steffy and Liam are concerned that Thomas’ machinations will work on Hope.

In the Forrester living room, where Carter is presiding over the wedding, Zoe warns Thomas not to dare leave her at the altar. Viewers see Thomas getting more uncomfortable saying any kind of words of commitment through the ceremony when he is clearly not in love with Zoe, especially after seeing Hope descend the stairs in a wedding dress with little Douglas by her side. Finally, Thomas tells Zoe he cannot marry her, because Hope is  the ‘mother of his child’.  So … what’s a girl to do? Oh yeah! Bitch-slap to the guy’s face! Zoe slaps Thomas.

An emotional Thomas, think he has Hope, but Hope levies the smack down on him, informing Thomas she wore the wedding gown to expose his duplicity and true intentions.  When he goes into hug her,  Hope strongly shoves him away. “Steffy told Liam and I everything!” she says, in regard to the kiss between Liam and Steffy that Thomas made sure Hope caught.  Now ,Thomas backpedals with Zoe, and she is having none of it.  Zoe tells Thomas that he has lost her and everyone else!

Liam states Thomas is just as bad as he ever was. Thomas seethes “You will not take my son away from me.” Liam says they can give him the family he deserves.

Ridge, who has put his relationship with Brooke over the ringer over his son, tells Thomas  “You played me.” Hope is done with him. Thomas leaves the mansion a caught and broken man for all of his machinations.  And in the end, Douglas looks to now be a part of Hope and Liam’s family nucleus.
