Tess has duped Natalie and takes the baby from her. Ford tells James he has a plan for Tess. While Tess gloats about her freedom, Ford reveals to Langston that he plans to commit Tess. Marty is about to tell John something important about the baby, but Viki interrupts. John goes to find Natalie and sees her with Brody and Liam and he walks off, hurt and angry. Marty is enigmatic about everything having worked out as she hoped. Starr and Langston reconnect. Starr admits she and James are together now. The two friends bond and remark over the reversal of their fortunes. Tea has knocked out Todd and tied him up to keep him from running after Dani and Nate. In a vulnerable moment Todd admits he’s scared of losing everyone he loves. Tomas makes a mysterious phone call about Todd. Blair has told Cristian about Tomas, and Cristian remembers him from his childhood. Tomas comes in and reveals he’s sticking around. Cristian tells Blair to stay cautious about Tomas because Cristian has thought something was sketchy about the way he left home and never came back.

Bo is stonewalled at the Moroccan prison but Rex surprisingly shows up and gains them access to David’s cell, which is empty. Despite his anger at Rex for having kept his knowledge of David’s incarceration secret, Bo grudgingly accepts his help when they receive a clue that will take them to another part of the world. Clint pumps Nora for information about Bo’s mysterious “business” trip. Nora doesn’t reveal the nature of Bo’s business, but she informs Clint that Matthew now knows Nora and Bo believe Clint killed Eddie Ford. Joey finds Nora and tells her about his father’s meeting with Eddie right before Nora’s kidnapping. Matthew tells Destiny about his parents’ belief that Clint killed Eddie. Aubrey and Cutter want to get their hands on Clint’s tape that would expose their scheme. Clint catches Aubrey snooping in his desk and tells her the tape is securely locked in his safe. Joey returns home and with Aubrey’s support breaks into Clint’s safe, but is caught in the act by Clint. Dorian tries to prove she’s over David by kissing Cutter. Gigi arrives at Rodi’s to find John drinking in the morning. When she defends Natalie’s actions and reveals she knew the truth about Natalie’s baby’s paternity, John fires her. Kelly finds John alone and suggests he find a way besides drinking to deal with his pain. The pair end up kissing once again.

Téa tells Tomas he’s free to return to Paris now that she has everything under control with Todd. Tomas declines, causing Téa to assume he’s staying for Blair. Téa warns Tomas to stay away from Blair. Blair warns Todd that she isn’t the only person who’ll be keeping a close eye on him. Todd threatens to have Tomas deported. Neither Blair nor Todd is keeping a close eye on Jack, who continues his reign of terror on Shane. Todd, Blair and Gigi are called to the school to address the situation when Shane and Jack trade accusations about some missing money. Gigi lets slip to Natalie that John fired her. John and Kelly nearly have another spontaneous rendezvous, but thoughts of Joey put a damper on things. Natalie once again walks in on the moment and escalates her war of words with Kelly. Natalie demands that John rehire Gigi. Clint catches Joey and Aubrey breaking into his safe. Joey is upfront with Clint about his suspicions that his father was involved with Eddie’s murder, and thinks the flash drive in the safe might prove his guilt. Aubrey knows better and works to stop Clint from showing Joey the contents of the drive. Joey and Kelly share another close moment before Natalie arrives and clues her brother in that she just caught Kelly with John.

James, despite having taken precautions to avoid Tess, has another uncomfortable encounter with her while he’s naked. Starr walks in on it. Ford moves forward with his plan to have Tess committed, but he discovers he’s completely broke and won’t be able to use a cent of Ryder’s trust without Tess’s consent. When the orderlies arrive to take her away, he’s in a tight spot. Starr, Langston and James happily assume Tess is on her way to St. Ann’s. Natalie breaks down over John with Brody. They grow closer but are upended when there’s something wrong with Liam. John doesn’t want to hear it when Tea tries to compare him and Natalie to her and Todd. Todd gloats over John’s misfortune. He asks John to investigate his brother-in-law, Tomas. Blair tells Tomas that Cristian warned her to stay away from him. Tomas admits Tea warned him to stay away from Blair.  Tomas asks Blair on a date. When Todd leaves Rodi’s, we see he’s a target for an unseen gunman. Viki and Tea corner Clint into agreeing to the deal they concocted as a way to get Ford to commit Tess.  Someone starts shooting at Todd. John and Todd are trapped together, and John shoots back. Gigi walks into the crossfire and John gets her to safety. Ford decides not to commit Tess. He turns down the offer from Viki, Clint and Tea. Langston waits with James and Starr, thinking Tess is being committed to St. Ann’s. After not hearing from Ford, Langston returns and finds Tess and Ford a united front. Dorian gives Charlie hell for cheating on Viki with Echo. She tells him he won’t tell Viki about it if he breaks off with Echo immediately. Echo brings a pizza to Rex and finds Gigi home instead. Gigi senses something’s up with Echo and Charlie and tries to warn her off. Gigi leaves Echo to pick up some books from Rodi’s, and Charlie arrives. He means to tell Echo it’s over, but they kiss. Viki finds Dorian waiting for Charlie and wonders why. Bo and Rex are still in Morocco, discouraged about finding David alive. Bo almost mends fences with Rex. Kahlid gives them a clue about David’s whereabouts. They believe he’s in St. Blaze’s with Alex Olanov.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Michael at a Crossroads; What Did You Think of Christian LeBlanc’s 30th Anniversary Episode?

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it three-time Daytime Emmy winner Christian LeBlanc’s (Michael Baldwin) 30th anniversary show.

In the story, after winning a high-profile case, Michael meets up with his wife, Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) at Society to celebrate the court victory, only he ponders if he should quit while he is ahead and go out on top with a great winning-streak or change course in his life and do something else. Michael is at crossroads which sets the tone for characters and loved ones to weigh-in on what they think he should do, give him some advice, and he even gets a job offer within the hour.

The episode was at its absolute best when it went to flashbacks of Michael’s story through the years as it touched upon his dynamic with other key members of his family and Genoa City.  It was there we were reminded, and at times, grabbed for the hankies, of some of the emotional moments of Michael’s past all played brilliantly by LeBlanc.

Y&R did dance around the controversial relationship between Michael and Christine (Lauralee Bell), but did touch upon it via a clip of Michael’s heinous vendetta against a younger Christine with him determined to break down a wall, literally, and attack her, and, as longtime viewers know, Michael wound up shot by Paul who saved Christine  The dialog brought up: how Michael was consumed with revenge, how he hit rock bottom, and that his prison time ended up being life-saving and life-changing, and how, in the end, Christine did help him reclaim his legal career, and that they were able to put the past behind them.

Next, Victor (Eric Braeden) shows up at the bar and winds up sitting with Lauren and Michael, and while Victor and Michael recall their often- contentious professional relationship in flashbacks, Victor offers Michael a job to work at Newman Media; leaving Michael to ponder the offer.

Then, Lauren called the Baldwin/Fisher clan to show up. So together, Gloria (Judith Chapman), Kevin (Greg Rikaart), and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) lend moral support to Michael during his decision process. It is there that some of the best flashbacks in the episode occur:  One, where Gloria wants the chance to be a mother to her boys, another, where Michael sits by Kevin’s hospital bedside lamenting on how he could have been a better brother and that he left him behind, and then another where Kevin tells Michael how important he is to him and that they repaired their relationship.

After the trio leave, it’s just Lauren and Michael, where the two recall moments in their relationship and in the end, Michael knows what he wants to do – spend more time with Lauren.

Watch the final moments of Christian’s anniversary episode below, followed by our most recent interview with LeBlanc and his dear friend and Y&R co-star Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).

Now let us know, what did you think of Christian’s 30th anniversary episode of Y&R? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: A Shocked Brooke Exclaims: “Oh, My God! I Was Drinking Last Night!”

Score one for Sheila (Kimberlin Brown)! On Monday’s continuance of the New Year’s episode of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, a hungover Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) wakes up next to Deacon (Sean Kanan) in her bed, just as Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is finally able to make it home to his wife.

Horrified that she is next to Deacon and with a pounding headache, Brooke jumps up and realizes she had been drinking… booze! The stunning realization makes her flash back to the night before where she now recalls doing vodka shots, horsing around with Deacon and kissing him.

Deacon assures her that he was gentleman and nothing happened between them. As she hears Ridge pull up to the house, and now downstairs with Deacon, she begs him to leave ASAP and to never come back.  He slips out the back.   Ridge comes in to the house thrilled to see Brooke who is literally coming apart at the seams.

Next, Deacon goes to the infamous bar where he met up with Sheila in the first place.  He tries some non-alcoholic champagne. Sheila is there, but lurks. She then goes to the bar to pry about what happened on New Year’s Eve with Brooke.  Deacon is not giving up any intel to her.  However, Sheila figures out Brooke’s life must have imploded, if Deacon was testing the champagne.  In addition, via a flashback, viewers saw just how Sheila switched the labels on the champagne bottles to set this whole plot against Brooke in motion. Very clever, Sheila!

Back at the house. Ridge knows something is off with Brooke.  While he holds her, she cries.  When Ridge goes upstairs, Brooke begins to sob as she heads back to where all the alcohol is while staring at the Vodka, wondering what triggered her to drink again.  It was a great performance by Katherine Kelly Lang.

Now the question is, will Brooke just keep drinking? Will she get into AA stat? Share your thoughts on the episode and what you think will happen next in the comment section below. But first, check out the final moments of Monday’s B&B.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Tracy Tells Laura that Luke is “Gone”. What Will Her Next Sentence Be?

Is Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) literally dead-dead? That’s the question on viewers minds after the shocking ending of Monday’s first episode of the new year of General Hospital.

In the key scene at the end of Monday’s show, Tracy, played by Jane Elliot, makes a surprise visit to Laura’s (Genie Francis) just as the clock is about to strike midnight on New Year’s Eve in Port Charles.

When Laura, who is with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), opens the front door, she sees Tracy standing there.  An emotional Tracy tells Laura,”It’s Luke. He’s gone.”  Laura is gut-punched.  We fade to black.  The audience is stunned that, first, GH kept under wraps the return of Elliot, but second, that they truly would kill off the iconic character of Luke Spencer.

Since the airing of the episode, fans and viewers of the ABC soap, have been trying to figure out if this is a fake out, and Tracy will continue her explanation on tomorrow’s episode and reveal that, perhaps, Luke has disappeared?

Geary had previously made it clear he would not return to the GH.  So, could this be a story-driven point and the show is really saying buh-bye to Luke? Is this tied to what Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) wants to get out of the mind of Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison), after Victor’s rather threatening and revealing conversation with Peter (Wes Ramsey), who has unfortunately awakened from his coma?  Stay tuned!

Now, weigh-in: what do you think Tracy’s next sentence will be to Laura? What do you think has happened to Luke? Share your theories via the comment section below.
