At EOD Todd receives a threat from Irene. Irene visits Viki, ostensibly to apologize. Viki calls Bo and gets confirmation that Irene was released from jail.  Viki berates Irene for her treatment of her sons and of her daughter Tina.  At EOD Irene says she has one more thing to share with Viki: a gun that she points at her. Blair tries to get Jack to admit he’s lying about Todd’s involvement in Victor’s death.  She tells him Todd might get the death sentence. However Dani and Tomas interrupt just when Jack might confess to the lie. At EOD Tea returns home and Blair is about to take off with Jack to keep working on him, when someone enters. He is there about Victor Lord Jr’s last will and testament. Tina travels to Llanview with a mysterious man traveling next to her. Tomas takes responsibility for the fact that Todd had to spend all those years behind bars. John is about to admit to Natalie that he still loves her, when he sees her engagement ring. He learns she’s going to marry Brody.  Bo sees Natalie is upset.

Tina Lord and her dog, David Vickers, return to Llanview and make a beeline to see her family. At Todd’s house, the lawyer is about to read the will when Tina arrives to the surprise of all.  By EOD the reading is back on track and the lawyer announces to whom Victor left the entirety of his estate. Todd freaks when he receives Irene’s note, in which she threatens the lives of all he holds dead.  Todd shows Starr the note, which suddenly is unreadable.  Starr wants to take the note to John and Bo, but Todd thinks it’s too risky to involve the police.  At EOD Todd tells Starr there’s only one thing to do: They must break him out of jail.  Natalie tells Rex that she accepted Brody’s marriage proposal.  Rex learns that an encounter with John precipitated Natalie’s decision.  Rex questions Natalie’s motives.  Later, Rex has another vision of Gigi. Jessica confides in Ford that Natalie accepted Brody’s marriage proposal.  Ford helps Jessica exorcise her anger.  But at EOD she may have some left over when she runs into Natalie.

Tina is crushed that there’s no money for her.  At EOD, we see that Irene has a plan for Victor’s family: a bomb is planted outside of the house where the family is still gathered. Todd convinces Starr to bust him out of prison.  Natalie and Jessica have it out about Natalie’s engagement to Brody and they come to blows.  Brody breaks them up and takes Natalie off, leaving a seething Jessica. Brody again asks Clint for his blessing in his marriage to Natalie. Clint argues against the wedding, but Brody is resolute.  He suggests that Clint’s approval would go a long way toward healing the enmity between Natalie and Jessica.  Clint very much wants to do that, so he gives the marriage his blessing.  When Brody goes, Clint gets a visit from someone he’s happy to see.

Blair, Tea, Viki and Jack react to Todd’s escape and the fact that he was abetted by Starr. Todd explains about Irene’s threat. Blair is mad at him for involving Starr. Meanwhile we see the bomb ticking away.  Jack is furious about Todd’s escape and surreptitiously calls the cops.    Tina reacts to seeing Todd, then tries to enlist him to fight Victor’s will.  She reveals Victor Lord Sr’s ring and Todd recognizes it.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: 50th Anniversary Of Newman Enterprises Gala Brings Retro Clips, Speeches & Icon Eric Braeden

Wednesday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it a very special episode to honor Eric Braeden’s 40th anniversary with the top-rated soap operas as the one and only Victor Newman.  Braeden has made himself and Victor Newman a household name throughout his four decades in Genoa City.

Since back in 1980 when Eric first came on to the scene as Victor, Y&R knew they had struck gold.  To celebrate the milestone, the series crafted an episode that centered around Newman Enterprises 50th anniversary and held a gala in its honored, steer-headed by Victor’s wife, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

With special returning guest stars including: Meg Bennett (Julia), Robert Parucha (Matt), Robert Adamson (Noah) and Eileen Davidson (Ashley), throughout the hour, characters stood up from their tables delivering a few endearing …. or sometimes contentious thoughts at their relationships with Victor over the years.

From children, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), Nick (Joshua Morrow), Abby (Melissa Ordway) and Adam (Mark Grossman) to business rivals, Jack (Peter Bergman) and Jill (Jess Walton) and more, emotions ran high.

What Y&R delivered best in the episode was finding retrospective clips that fans have not seen in awhile, while also reminding us through Braeden’s two most towering performances – when Victor confronts his mother (Dorothy McGuire) and later his father (George Kennedy) – the depth of his performances which to this day can make you reach for the hankies all over again.   One of our other favorite clips was the simply-stated scene between Abby and Victor; where he supports his daughter while her love life has fallen apart.

In addition, if you watched Braeden throughout the episode, several time he had tears in his eyes, as the viewers felt what Victor must be feeling during this walk down memory lane, and Eric, himself.   The series also went all in creating pieces of photographic art of Eric as a time capsule to this special occasion, which showed the attention to detail everyone at Y&R had for this special actor.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.
