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

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

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.

Oh Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang)! How were you going to explain away this one?  On Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, surrounded by the people she loves, and her arch nemesis Quinn (Rena Sofer), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge’s (Thorsten Kaye) recommitment soiree’ goes bust, when Ridge and company get an eyeful on Ridge’s iPad during his picture montage of his time with Brooke, only sequestered within it, thanks to Quinn, is the footage of Bill (Don Diamont) and Brooke’s recent kiss!

Now, the fallout begins! As Ridge and Katie (Heather Tom) are besides themselves with hurt and betrayal as it appears that Bill and Brooke once again could not keep their hands and lips off of each other.

Ridge has had it, and in no uncertain terms, smashes the iPad in defiance of the memories he shared with Brooke , and then after Bill opens his mouth to try to explain how Brooke needed comforting over Thomas (Matt Atkinson), especially since Ridge never believed her about his son, Ridge then hauls off and punches the guy.

Katie can’t believe it either!  She thought this was buried once and for all between them, but then she realizes she feels once again gullible to her sister’s seemingly endless attraction to the man she loves, Bill!

Quinn is loving every minute of this, and meanwhile at Shauna’s, Flo (Katrina Bowden) and Shauna (Denise Richards) are discussing why Shauna is leaving town, which stems from her loving Ridge, and not being able to be with him; even though she knows that Brooke’s world can come tumbling down with that videotape of that kiss with Bill.  Might she still have her shot at love with Ridge?

Back at the party, Brooke tries to explain to all and mostly to Ridge and Katie, how the kiss happened, and how it did not mean anything, and that she was in a vulnerable place after Thomas had just left.  So, Bill came in to comfort her.  But no matter how hard she tried, and through her tears and through her pleas that she loves Ridge and her sister, Ridge is  now ready to walk out on Brooke for good, and Katie is disgusted.

In this episode, B&B stalwart, Katherine Kelly Lang delivered a great performance of a woman who knows she did wrong, tries to explain it away and rationalize what happened; when nothing good could possibly come out of it for her.  Open, vulnerable, honest Brooke lays it all on the line, but who is going to easily forgive her for this?

After the episode aired, B&B and CBS Daytime released the promo for next week’s episodes, which show that Ridge does wind up at Shauna’s. (Check it out below) Now, what will happen between them and is Bridge finally over?

In the comment section, let us know what you thought about today’s episode and what happened to Brooke during the party after her secret kiss with Bill was revealed!
