Todd receives another visit from Irene.  Meanwhile, Téa presents a deal to Bo. Téa is given an opportunity to listen to Victor’s last words, captured on Shaun’s voicemail.  At EOD Téa seeks out Todd as Bo contemplates her offer.  Elsewhere, John gets a visit from Shaun, who relays his strange encounter with Vimal.  John remembers witnessing a run-in between Vimal and Brody and wonders if he might have had cause to kill Victor.  John confronts Brody and requests his weapon for testing.  Natalie is forced to run the test.  John wonders why Brody would threaten Victor.  Earlier, Natalie catches up with Rex.  Both are moving on with their lives.  Later, Roxy flips out when she learns from Rex that Natalie is engaged to Brody.  Roxy tells Rex that John is still in love with Natalie.  At the Spotted Pony, Rama and Cutter set up Kim to take the fall for Mr. Berger’s death years ago.  Kim beseeches Cutter to take care of her friend in her absence.  Meanwhile, Cutter shows up just as the doctor is asking the patient if she remembers her name.

Todd is grateful to Tea for representing him.  Tea informs him that Bo is considering dropping the charges against him – but he has to turn himself in.  Todd agrees to do so.  But when they arrive, Nora, not trusting him, demands he tell her the truth.  John doesn’t let go if his question to Brody: why did he threaten Victor?  Finally, Brody explodes at John, accusing him of hammering at him because Liam is Brody’s son, not John’s, and Natalie is going to be his wife and not John’s.  They leave but John isn’t about to let it go.  Jessica holds onto Liam’s paternity test but hides it from Tina.  She tells Jessica that the document, whatever it was, belonged to Victor. Ford is surprised when Jessica accepts his invitation to Capricorn.  Once they’re there, Jessica fills him in about the paternity test, surmising that Victor hated John McBain, maybe he was purposely keeping him from knowing the truth.  Rex runs into Aubrey at Capricorn.  She apologizes for telling Bo about Rex’s gun – and for trying to get closer to him right after his fiancée died.  Rex assures her he knows all about being a con, used to be one too. She offers to help him with the party for Natalie and Brody he wants to throw.  He accepts.  The doctor is forced to sedate the patient in the hospital bed.  Bo and Nora discuss dropping the charges against Todd.  Nora admits that she will never trust him.  She was fooled by him once when she defended him when he raped Marty, she will never be fooled by him again.  Bo assures her that the mayor would be happy if Nora went to trial anyway.  Nora teases Bo about the mayor’s romantic interest in him.  Cord and Tina babysit Ryder and they are reminded of parenting together.  They address the elephant in the room: their recent near-kiss. They look like they might kiss again.

Natalie interrupts Cord and Tina. Natalie finally has it out with Tina for her role in being held captive three years earlier. Tina offers to plan her wedding. After Natalie leaves, Tina and Cord agree to table the talk of their relationship for another day. Ford and Jessica’s night out at Capricorn is spoiled by Brody’s arrival. Privately, Ford wonders if Brody might already know that Liam is not his son. Brody warns gives Vimal a warning.  Danielle visits Starr at the jail cell. The two sisters offer each other advice. Meanwhile, Blair finds Jack working late at The Sun. She reminds her son that Shane’s testimony will prove that Jack lied to the police. At the LPD,  Nora makes a decision about the charges against Todd and Todd and Starr come face-to-face.

Starr and Todd have their day in court.  Meanwhile Tomas appears for his sentencing hearing. Tea tells him she can’t do anything for him since he pled guilty. Blair, kicked out of the arraignment, questions Tomas about his reasons for pleading guilty to a crime he didn’t commit. Anguished Blair asks if she means anything to him, and he makes a confession to her. Bo argues with Mayor Finn and she fires Bo, who tells her (essentially) to go to hell. She rehires him and he makes an excellent point that she cannot dispute. Roxy tells Rex about Echo’s forgery and the document that’s floating around that turns all of Rex’s money back over to Clint, and sends him a copy of the forged document.  Meanwhile Viki forces Clint to do his exercises when he gets a call from Cutter, telling him he can get all Clint’s money and property back for him, for a price. Clint calls Rex and demands he come over.   Cutter talks to the patient, who calls him Rex once by mistake. Cutter is not forthcoming when she asks him questions. Clint calls Cutter and tells him to take his document and shove it.  Cutter at first is foiled but quickly comes up with a plan.

Blair begs Todd to save Tomas from a prison sentence.  Inside the hearing room, Tomas faces sentencing.  But before hearing the judge’s decision, he directs a heartfelt speech to Téa and Blair in which he takes responsibility for his failures.  Meanwhile, Todd is confronted by another vision of Irene which prompts him to take drastic action.  Cutter comes up with a scheme to get the Buchanan money.  In Llanview, Aubrey tells Rex about her idea for Natalie and Brody’s engagement party.  Rex informs Aubrey about Cutter’s attempt to get his money. In Llanview, Cutter goes to Rex with an offer.  Starr gets physical with one of the pushy paparazzi, then is spirited inside by James.  Starr is glad to be home and can’t wait for life to get back to normal.  She goes upstairs to see Hope, leaving James to answer the door to Rick.  Rick congratulates Starr on her arrest; buzz is building, and her new bad girl image is just the thing they need to sell records.  Rick tells her that if she won’t play ball, he’ll seize control of her music.  At EOD Rick has something else up his sleeve to get what he wants.

Thanks for the recap! I am glad to see some changes happen before the show gets stale. For instance i’m glad to see Rex at his office now, instead of just at the mansion or the graveyard or the restaurant. I know that soaps have to save money on sets but I wish they had the beautiful sets that all my children had.
But watching Friday’s episode last night I realized how bad people can look on there sometimes. Irene for instance, is that a wig she’s wearing? She does not look flattering at all. And Todd’s hair is a mess and so is Blair’s! Blair had some beautiful hairstyles over the years (especially seeing the flashbacks) but now it is just a mess and not attractive on her at all.
I’m hoping the show really is planning on bringing out all the stops the closer it gets towards the end on network tv. Not only with stories and bringing back old favorites but with sets, wardrobe and hair.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Needs Fatherly Advice From Tony As Ryan Carnes and Brad Maule Deliver Tender Scenes

Friday’s highly-touted episode of ABC;s General Hospital featured the return of Brad Maule in the role of Dr. Tony Jones, the adoptive father of Lucas(Ryan Carnes) and former husband to Bobbie (Jackie Zeman).

It has been years since fan favorite Maule graced the GH screens, but the writers found a way to conjure him up in Lucas’ mind as Lucas is in a pivotal moment in his life; his bio-dad Julian Jerome (William deVry) is blackmailing his husband, Brad (Parry Shen), and Brad is keeping secrets from Lucas.  All spell bad news to Lucas for raising his son, Wiley.  But as GH fans know, Wiley is not the baby that Lucas thinks he is raising with Brad- he is actually raising Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) child, which Brad knows!

So, needing some clarity and visiting his adoptive dad’s gravesite, Lucas sees the vision of Tony, and the former father and son have a heart to heart.  Tony tells Lucas how raising him as  little boy gave him the strength and courage to go on through the hard times, and how to be their for his little boy.  Lucas is just emotionally overwrought and so burdened by the lies those who say that they supposedly love him have been telling.

At the same time, Julian is searching for Lucas, and happens upon Bobbie at the hospital. She really does not like Julian and the two land at the GH hospital wall where plaques of the beloved doctors and nurses who have passed away are seen.  Bobbie knows Julian could never be the kind of father, Tony was to Lucas.  Julian says he can never replace Tony, but he is Lucas’ father and wants to somehow do right by him.

Later alone, Bobbie talks to Tony’s photo and we see a heartfelt moment where Tony touches Bobbie’s hand and touches her on the cheek. Something Bobbie feels as she remembers this once great love of hers. At the end of the episode Julian finds Lucas at Tony’s gravesite. What will their confrontation bring?

Kudos to Ryan Carnes, who was the emotional heart of this episode and who made us feel every moment of Lucas’s anguish. And … how wonderful to see Brad Maule again!

So, what did you think of Tony’s visit to Lucas and Bobbie on Friday’s GH? Comment below. But first watch some key scenes between them.

Days Of Our Lives

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Bring the Heartache and Heartbreak to DAYS’ Elani Wedding

Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives showcased the nuptials of now long-suffering duo, Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers).  In true soap opera fashion things didn’t look good for the couple to get hitched in the first place, especially with Gabi’s (Camila Banus) threats that she would literally blow Julie’s (Susan Seasforth Hayes) heart out of her chest, if Lani did not bust up with Eli at the altar.

As Marlena (Deidre Hall) is officiating the ceremony, things took a dark turn when she asked if anyone in attendance could show just cause why the couple should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Everyone is silent as Gabi, who is an attending the nuptials, is quite happy with herself broadcasting the wedding from her phone to Julie who is in the hospital.  Next, an emotional Lani tells Gabi how sorry she is for shooting Stefan.  Lani says she hopes Gabi can set aside their differences for the sake of Julie and Eli.  Gabi tells her she thought she made herself clear.  It appears that Lani decides she is moving forward with the vows, after standing up for herself and ignoring Gabi’s threat after tackling Gabi WWE Smackdown style.  Next, Gabi informs to everyone she just pressed the button on the app on her phone and Eli’s grandmother’s heart exploded. But hold the phone! In that moment, there is a twist.  We go back to Lani at the altar who snaps out of this blackmail nightmare she just played out in her head.  That didn’t really happen, but the audience sees her thinking process through it, which leads Lani in the present to break off the wedding to her beloved Eli.

At the altar, Lani tells Eli through her tears she cannot do this.  Eli is stunned and confused.  The bride tells him he doesn’t deserve this.  Next, Lani turns towards Gabi, and then tells Eli she is sorry and then runs out of the ceremony.   Gabi mutters that her “work is done here” which seems to be overheard by Will (Chandler Massey).

What follows is absolutely devastating scene in the park as Eli has followed Lani there.  Through her tears, and knowing that the only way she can break things off with Eli is to hurt him deeply, Lani tells him at first that she doesn’t deserve to be happy with a husband, because she shot and killed Gabi’s.  However, Eli won’t accept that, and that is when she has to muster everything inside her to break Eli’s heart in pieces.  She tells the man she loves that she doesn’t love him anymore. Lani says that she thought that after baby David’s death and all they went through to be together it would all fall back into place for them, but for her, it didn’t.

Lani says her decision is made. With tears streaming down his face, Eli cries, “So you’re leaving me? That’s it?” Lani confirms it is, and that she is sorry and then runs off.  Cue none other than Gabi to find a gut-punched Eli on the park bench, who she hugs! Looks like there’s a part two to Gabi’s heinous plan ahead.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Checks Into Shadybrook, While Laura Is Unconvinced That Nikolas Is Alive

For months now, viewers have seen the downward spiral of Ava Jerome (Maura West).  It began following the death of her daughter Kiki, and realizing the man she fell in love with was not her therapist, Dr Kevin Collins, but none other than his serial killer twin brother, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) – the man that murdered her daughter.

Trying to get back on her feet has been difficult for Ava.  She finally found some purpose in going back to work at the art gallery she loved so much.  Along the way, she has been sipping one too many martinis.  So, if you add all that up, and if you are other denizens in Port Charles, you might think that when Ava professes she saw the real Nikolas Mikhail Stavrosovich Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) in the flesh, when the man supposedly died a few years ago, then she has really lost it!

Thing is – Ava did see Nikolas, and he is back in Port Charles, alive and well, only know else knows except for Hayden  (Rebecca Budig) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which we learned at the end of Friday’s episode.

Earlier, after Ava passed out seeing Nikolas, she comes too, and he is not at the gallery anymore.  She panics and looks everywhere for him. Ava is convinced there has to be security camera footage of him in the gallery.  Nikolas’ mother, Laura (Genie Francis) happens to head over to see Ava to discuss Helena’s portrait, which has been the key to the codicil mystery, which is now at Ava’s gallery,

When Laura arrives, she finds Ava with drink in hand, and professing to her that Laura’s first-born son Nikolas is alive and he was just here at the gallery! As she tries to produce the physical evidence to show Laura, it’s not there.   Ava questions her sanity after Laura suggests she really needs professional help; something Laura knows a thing or two about

What happens next is shocking:  Julian (William deVry) is called and he meets Ava and Laura at Shadybrook sanitarium.  Viewers watch as Ava takes off all of her jewelry and her high heels. She hugs Julian and Laura before leaving them behind to get the help she “needs”.

Kudos to Genie Francis and Maura West, who’s unlikely on-screen friendship as Laura and Ava has been a delight to watch; especially when these two powerhouse actresses share two-person scenes together.

Watching Francis’ facial expression when Laura entertains for a moment that her son could be alive and then feels sorrow was masterful, as was West when as Ava she leans on Laura realizing she is in a worse way than she even imagined.  Will Ava get out of Shadybrook soon?  Will Laura get to feel joy that her son is truly alive and in Port Charles? Stay tuned.
