Jessica’s horrified to learn that she doesn’t have custody of her own son. She’s forced to leave Ryder in Aubrey’s care a little longer when Brody informs her of the situation with Clint and she goes to the hospital. Aubrey learns that Jess came home to find Brody in bed with Natalie and commiserates with Brody since she, too, may be the victim of the bad timing of Jessica’s return. Indeed, Joey comes home and tells Aubrey they’re over for good now that Jessica has come home to take care of her son. Ford enlists James’ help to track down Tess. James suggests Tess was only using Ford to break her out of St. Ann’s, but Ford insists he and Tess are in love. Having checked everywhere else, Ford shows up at Llanfair where he comes face to face with Jessica. Blair follows Tomas to a New York hotel where he is supposedly meeting a man from an art gallery. Calmar catches Blair and warns her to go home or he’ll tell Tomas she was tailing him. Blair agrees, but doesn’t honor the agreement, sneaking back in time to hear Tomas’ raised voice and smashing glass from inside the room. Seeing Tomas storm off, Blair sneaks into the room and noses around but is caught a beautiful woman who tells Blair she’s Tomas’ wife. Starr and James meet at LU to register for a summer class they’ll be taking together. When James is called away by Ford, Starr has a phone conversation with Langston. Starr moves off to a hallway for privacy, leaving behind some items. When she returns, she finds an enigmatic young man listening to her iPod. The man with Todd’s original face shows Kent the wedding photo of him and Blair, says it’s what they’re looking for. Sam drops a tray of food, surprised by the situation. He killed Kent.  Sam asks if he is a bad man too and he replies that he’s not sure.

Natalie is caught in the middle of Clint and Rex’s war. Natalie and Viki confront Clint over his tactics. Todd and Téa defend Jack from John. Todd takes Jack home but John promises he’ll be seeing the kid real soon. Ford learns that Jessica has sent Tess packing and retaken control. Jessica makes it clear that she is not going anywhere, but he is – she wants no part of him and won’t stand for him to take part in Ryder’s life. Ford refuses to give up on Ryder or Tess. Blair is surprised to find out that Tomas isn’t visiting New York to meet with a gallery owner – he’s meeting with his wife, Yvette. Tomas arrives and admits this is true but quickly explains to Blair that he and Yvette have been over years, despite her refusal to sign divorce papers – a divorce he sought when he discovered her affair that landed her pregnant with her lover’s baby. Yvette turns Tomas’s world upside down when she tells him that her son is actually Tomas’s. Meanwhile, Starr meets a brash young newcomer with sophisticated taste in music. Starr takes issue when he monkeys around with her iPod, but grudgingly cops to some interest in his music. The young man introduces himself as Sebastian, but she can call him Baz – just as we’re learning that Yvette and Tomas’s son is named Sebastian, and missing from his NYC hotel room.

Tomas and Blair and Yvette have spent the night looking for Sebastian, who finally returns and admits he went to Llanview to check it out. Yvette tells Tomas he has to take Sebastian now if he wants her to sign the divorce papers, which Tomas does. Yvette leaves, first giving Blair another veiled warning about Tomas. Blair entices Sebastian to go stay with his father by promising access to the equipment at Capricorn, and he agrees. Starr tells James about the strange guy who disapproved of her music and put his own on her MP3 player. James insists he’s not jealous, even though Starr wants to hold on to the music. Tea gives Rex the bad news that she can’t find a way to marry him and Gigi at this point. Echo appears and they deal with the issue that Rex now knows Echo knew Charlie wasn’t Rex’s father. Todd and Jack argue over Jack’s behavior. They nearly come to blows after Jack pushes Todd’s buttons. Tea arrives and keeps Todd from slugging Jack. John gets the forensics report and he and Brody arrive and arrest Jack. Earlier, John notes Brody looks like hell and Brody tells him he’s moved into the Angel Square. John learns Jessica is back and is puzzled as to what’s up between Brody and her, but doesn’t pursue. Jessica and Natalie argue and Natalie finally lashes out at Jessica for abandoning Brody. Jessica points out she didn’t sleep with Natalie’s fiancé, although maybe she should change her ways. Dorian and David arrive from CA, fighting over an actress whose bra Dorian found in David’s dressing room. He appeases her but then an envelope arrives with incriminating sexy pictures of David and Ionia, the actress. Dorian has a fit but David explains the actress threw herself at him and he kicked her out. Dorian finally accepts the explanation but both wonder who took those pictures, and why. Meanwhile Echo thanks the messenger for delivering the pictures to Dorian.

Meanwhile, John presents his evidence to Jack, Tea and Todd. David arrives to see visit his family. Deanna tries to calm him. Rick Powers, the porn movie maker, shows up and tells Deanna that he heard what Nate did to the commissioner’s son. He wants her to be in a movie in exchange for her silence. James and Ford rescue her and toss Rick out. Tomas intros Dani to Baz. Baz, eager to get away from Tomas, invites himself along to Nate’s graduation. Baz and Starr come face-to-face again. Blair tells Starr about Tomas’s son. Later, she calls Tomas to see how things are going with Sebastian. Tomas admits his son couldn’t get away from him fast enough. Blair shows up to comfort him, telling Tomas that his ex-wife said something that suggested Tomas was lying when he said he found that photo of Todd and Blair (from which he painted her portrait) at the flea market. The man with Todd Manning’s original face tries to put together this puzzle of the apparent Todd Manning’s life Clint expects to be prepped for surgery when he is informed him the surgery is off. Clint prepares his family for a final goodbye. Todd gets Brad’s father alone and makes the unemployed man an offer he can’t refuse. Nate is horrified by Deanna’s news that Rick knows about Nick’s responsibility for hurting Matt. He’s further horrified when he learns that Rick will keep silent about it if he and Deanna appear in one of his films. Dani is twigged by seeing Nick and Deanna with their heads together. The graduation ceremony begins, preempting further conversations. Starr is stunned to learn that Baz is Tomas’s son and will be staying in Llanview. James isn’t thrilled when he comes upon Starr and Baz discussing music and the possibility of collaborating on a song.

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!
