Todd is released from the hospital and is not pleased to discover that Tomas has been living at his house in his absence. Tea gets the charges against Tomas dropped and expects Tomas to move out, but after Tea leaves, Tomas tells Todd he’s not going anywhere. He reminds Tomas he has no choice in the matter, but Todd presents an alternative in the form of a gun. Bo and Nora aren’t convinced Tomas is innocent, despite having to release him from custody. Destiny comes to see Matthew, who is shocked by Clint’s confession to Eddie’s murder. Destiny begs Matt to let his uncle take the rap for him and rushes off to do damage control with Dani. Throughout the day, Matthew nurses a searing headache brought on by the injury he sustained when Nate punched him. Bo and Nora return home and Bo tells Matthew that Clint confessed because he’s dying. Matt is nonetheless determined to take responsibility for the murder and starts to tell his parents someone else knows the truth, but before he can name Nate, he collapses. Nate tells Deanna he overheard Dani and Destiny talking about Matthew’s guilt. Nate’s surprised when he sees Dani and she says nothing to him about it, but instead pretends she believes Clint’s confession. John comes to see Kelly, hopeful for information about Marty’s whereabouts but Kelly is unable to enlighten him. It comes out that Joey’s feelings for Kelly have been rekindled in the face of her near death, and Kelly suspects John’s feelings have been similarly stirred by the thought of losing Natalie and Liam. Before Aubrey can tell Joey the truth herself, Joey blasts her about her lying and scheming. Aubrey is forced to admit she set out to woo and rob Joey, but she fell in love with him. Joey is unimpressed and admits to his feelings for Kelly. He orders Aubrey out of the mansion, but Aubrey reminds him they need to stay married to retain custody of Ryder. Bo and Nora scramble to figure out what’s wrong with Matthew. When he doesn’t rouse, they panic and take him to the ER. He has a brain bleed and needs surgery immediately. Todd would shoot Tomas, but Tomas attempts to prove that to do so would be destroy Todd’s life. When Tea arrives home, Todd surprises her with news that he wants Tomas to live with them. Brody arrives and he wants to know what Todd knows about Brody’s missing son. Blair’s torn about her feelings for Tomas. Starr points out that nothing is ever perfect in affairs of the heart. Brody questions Tess who doesn’t give him an inch. But Brody levels with Tess about the baby. Bess emerges and gives Brody the name Todd Manning. Cutter’s all set to put his plan into motion. He tells Tess he’ll meet her at Capricorn after he gets the money. Tess questions him, but he assures her he’s going to get them set up so that they can disappear and she’ll be able to remain Tess forever, but we see that Cutter is betraying her. He shows up to Clint and tells him that he’s ready to commit Tess. Meanwhile, Tess walks in on Ford kissing his date. Viki challenges Clint about his claim that he killed Eddie Ford. Tea arrives to prevent Clint from answering. Clint is concerned about Tess’s marriage to Cutter. He wants Tea to go over the divorce and marriage documents to see if they’re legal. Tea says they are, and isn’t sure what can be done. Clint regrets his meddling with the paternity test. Tea admonishes him to consider engaging her services to prevent a long prison sentence for Eddie Ford’s murder. Clint, knowing he doesn’t have long to live, is vague. Viki again presses about Eddie, but Cutter shows up to pressure Clint about paying him to commit Tess. Ford is doing volunteer work with kids at the hospital. A nurse takes notice and they go out for a drink together. She reveals that she gave him a sponge bath when he was in the hospital last summer and he made a pass at her. He tells her he wishes he could still be that guy, but he’s changed. He’s trying to get back on his feet with women.  She kisses him and Tess walks in.

THE BACHELOR: Did Madison Walk Away From Peter For Good?

On last night’s “Fantasy Suites” episode of The Bachelor, as predicted from the previews, Peter took his relationships with Hannah Ann and Victoria F. to the next level and with overnights.  Did he sleep with both?  That left the big question of the installment, what would happen between Madison and Peter, the final women left in the running for his heart.  .

When they sit down for their date, (which happened last on the airshow)  Madison emphasized that she is saving herself for marriage, won’t change her values, expects and that Peter would not have sex with any other women in the competition series, when she expresses: “I’m not in any way trying to come across as judgmental or hold something over your head, but at the same time, those are just my expectations that I have in life,”

Peter admits that he did have sex with someone else, and apologizes to her.  Madison does acknowledge that she had been testing him, and that he’d failed, miserably. In her testimonial, she shares: “He (Peter) knew coming into this week, because I had made it clear, that there was a chance that he could lose me if he made certain decisions and he made them anyways. I’m so frustrated with him, I’m so mad at him.”

Madison walks away from their table in tears.  Peter sits at the table also in tears.  Then, Peter gets up and tries to make things OK, by going after Madison to comfort her.  Next, he begins apologizing for hurting her and tells her that he can see a future for them …and to please not walk away.  But, Madison made it clear that she does not want him getting down on one knee six days after he had slept with someone else.

In the end, Madison walks away and out of camera range, and the episode comes to its conclusion.  Now this moment harkens to the mystery that people have been talking about all season long … who is the woman that Peter’s mother is crying over in the promos and tell him to go after her and bring her home?  From all accounts after this episode that would be Madison!  And in next week’s promo, it’s Victoria F. and Hannah Ann who are at a rose ceremony with no Madison in sight.

What did you think of Madison walking out on Peter? Do you think she had a right to give him an ultimatum about the other women? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.
