THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Courtney Hope Returns & Makes Us Love Sally All Over Again … Even Though She’s Got That Gun Pointed At Wyatt!

Courtesy/CBS

On Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, viewers saw the return of Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope).  How do we find Miss Sally? Getting schnockered at the Bikini Bar.  But, who should also be there ready for some libation? Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks).

As Sally drowns her sorrows in booze, and believe you me, she has plenty to drown, we learn the heartbreaking story of how Sally really has lost everything.

Wyatt sees Sally and strikes up a conversation.  He wonders why she is not in New York.  Sally reveals that although she went to be with Thomas, he dumped her and got back together with Caroline, even after Caroline was faking her illness.  Sally orders another round of drinks and says he was nothing but the, “Flavor of the month,” to Thomas.. She goes on to say how all of the Spencers make her sick.  Wyatt argues the point that only two Spencers have wronged her which of course includes his father, Bill (Don Diamont), who demolished Sally’s business … literally!  Sally decides to leave, but her credit card is declined and she has no cash on her, and announces she is going to go sleep on the beach. Wyatt will not let her do that, and takes her home with him to give her a place to sleep on his couch for the night.

Once at Wyatt’s, a distraught Sally admits she has nowhere else to go.  She returned to L.A. on instinct, and lists the things that were taken from her including: her fashion company, and Liam (Scott Clifton), etc.  When Wyatt tries to get her to sit down, she drops her purse.  As Sally turns, she sees everything has fallen out of it including a gun, which Wyatt sees.  Emotional and fed up, she admits she is alone with nothing, because of Wyatt’s father, Bill.  Sally is aiming to shoot at Wyatt as he tells her to stop, and we hear a shot ring out.  The episode fades to black.

Courtney Hope is so good at Sally that you root for the down-on-her-luck character who is a fighter and will claw her away back, even though she makes some radically bad decisions along the way.  We are glad that B&B has brought the characters back to the canvas as Courtney Hope infuses her with a fresh perspective and one that is very different character than the other women on the canvas.

So, do you think Sally will seek massive revenge on Bill?  Will she end up with Wyatt? Share your thoughts on Sally’s return to B&B in the comment section below.

Hope she and Wyatt AND Liam and Steffy gang up on Dollar Bill and DESTROY him!!!! Love Courtney being back and hope she gets a prominent storyline!!! I guess that would be a good pairing of Sally and Wyatt!! Let’s see!

I absolutely love this fiery redhead! So glad she’s back, and hope Wyatt will be man enough for her, especially when it comes to standing up to Bill.It didn’t work out for he and Katy, because they were both afraid of his wrath.Sally is not afraid of him, or anyone, maybe her strength and courage will rub off on Wyatt.

Hi Violet…really glad Sally is back as well. I think Wyatt’s perfect for her and likewise for him. Thomas was a wash, with the same story as Liam…the baby made the difference and the moms won. And as for Liam…he always turns out to be an unreliable wimp. Must admit I did enjoy his memory loss story with Quinn/Rena. Or when he is an animal activist. But why any woman would trust their heart to him is a mystery to me.

Hi Rose, loved your reply, and agree with you about Liam. He just tries to be everything to everyone, and somehow looses what he really wants. In my day, we would call him wishy washy. I do not think of him as a wimp, just a too nice guy. I liken him to Nick on Y&R. I know a lot of people do not think of these two as strong men, but I would take either one, before Bill Spencer and Victor Newman, who are evil, personified.

Violet…I like wishy washy.

They were afraid, but Katie was concerned about Will getting confused about Wyatt being his brother. Funny thing was, not 5 minutes after Katie and Wyatt broke up, Thorne goes in to comfort her and they start kissing. So heartbroken was she

like the return of Spectra and enjoy this actor as a new generation Sally, but please let’s have some real story and action. Not just a round of bedding and aching sappy hearts. Keep the couples together. Let them gel. And let the suspense, corporate intrigue, and real world concerns in for some drama. Might someone run for political office? Can there be a real mystery with consequences? B&B has received high honors for its social justice spotlight on ‘very special episodes;’ why not develop those as they did back in the day when Stephanie wandered off without her memory?

Lakovos…Like the return of Sally and your other ideas. EXCEPT No Politics. Too much of that elsewhere in real life.

Loving the pairing of Wyatt and Sally. I hope it’s not short lived like it was with Katie, although I can understand why. I guess now Thorne is going to wind up with Katie. Atc least some of the other cast members are finally getting some much deserved air time. There is only so much of Steffi I can take. But the show needs to pick up the pace a bit. I guess we’ll have to wait and see

I don’t know where else to speak of Hope, as this new format seems to be broken up into characters, and not each show.
Anyway, today’s show left me wondering about Hope’s next love interest,in the way they recycle characters.There are no young men left, so who will they use for her? It scares me to even be typing the names of Justin and Bill. Is there anyone I missed? Oliver is long gone, and they don’t do much hiring on B&B.

Love, love,love Sally! She’s got so much more to offer than pushy Steffy and whiney, clingy Hope. If you want Wyatt, you go get him girl!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sasha and Valentin’s Secret Out Of The Bag: So Where Is Nina’s Real Daughter?

As many had suspected, there was something up in the relationship between Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and relative newbie to Port Charles, Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson).

The young woman who was introduced on the show back in the middle of September, and “turned out” to be Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) biological daughter (the one she gave birth to years ago), is not telling the truth, nor is Valentin,

At the end of Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Sasha is visiting Valentin at Wyndemere, where he tells her he wants her to go back to where she came from, and that if she sticks around, the truth will come out.

A confident Sasha says she won’t blow this and that no one will ever find out that she is not Nina’s daughter.  Thus meaning, Valentin set this whole ruse up to wrangle Nina back into a romance and marriage with him.

But as for Sasha, she clearly is intent on not leaving town, and getting her claws into Griffin (Matt Cohen), even though he is dating her “sister” Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Even Ava (Maura West) is telling Sasha to go after her daughter’s man, because, as we know, Ava is a woman scorned in regard to Griffin. And let’s not forget that Ava and Nina are longtime nemesis, too.  Adding to the confusion and deception are those second DNA results that came back positive to prove to Nina that Sasha is her bio-daughter, but she clearly isn’t.

So now that we know Sasha is a fake, that begs the questions … Is Nina’s daughter even alive?  If she is alive, where is she, and who is she?

Share your thoughts on where, or who Nina’s real daughter is, and what you think of the collision between Valentin and Sasha, via the comment section below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Ashley Leaves For Paris As Eileen Davidson Wraps Her Run

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless marked the final appearance of Eileen Davidson in the role of Ashley Abbott, and the two-time Daytime Emmy winner left on a high note with an emotional storyline that could just earn her yet another gold statuette next year.

As Ashley’s family drama came to its conclusion, she tells Jack (Peter Bergman), Traci (Beth Maitland), Kyle (Michael Mealor) Billy (Jason Thompson) and Abby (Melissa Ordway) that she is taking the patents and leaving Genoa City immediately.  She reveals that while she is completely disgusted with the Abbott clan, she is not leaving out of spite.

Ashley’s decided to start her own company with her own products. … and she will call it “My Beauty” – John’s nickname for her when she was growing up.  Next, she goes toe to toe with her brother Jack. He fires back that Ashley has left Jabot for company after company, time and time again.  Then, there is another flashback to an argument that ensued when they were kids over a mess that was less at the family pool.

Now in the present, defiant and standing up for herself, Ashley says to the group there is no offer from them that she would accept, because she plans to start her own empire in the same city her mother did years ago.  Then, Ashley announces she is leaving for Paris on a jet tonight.  When Jack and Traci bring up leaving Dina (Marla Adams) behind, who is losing her battle with Alzheimer’s, Ashley says she had made peace with her mother and that Dina doesn’t know who she is anymore, so it won’t make a difference to Dina.

Ashley turns to Abby and asks her to join her in Paris, but Abby refuses. They share a tearful hug.  Next, Ashley addresses Billy hoping that their relationship one day can be repaired. Then, an emotional Traci tells her sister that she will always love her unconditionally, but she thinks Ashley’s making the wrong choice.  The sisters share a hug.  When Dina joins everyone, Ashley explains to her mother that she now feels liberated.

Before she leaves, Ashley tells Jack she has nothing to say to him and walks out. Later, Ashley is at the GCAC and gets a call from Neil, and drops the bombshell that she is leaving for Paris tonight and starting her own company, and she wishes they could have seen where their relationship would have gone.

Just then, Jack shows up.  In a heartfelt conversation, he confesses to Ashley that he hates himself for starting this war years ago, and what it’s done to their family.  He confesses that part of the reason the “blood Abbott clause” was added was so he wouldn’t have to compete against his sister.  Jack finally admits that he was jealous of her and her talents!  After apologizing to Ashley, they hug.  Then, we go to a flash back to when they were younger and a young Ashley tells Jack she does not like fighting with him.

Now in the present, with a chance to reconcile with her brother, Ashley doesn’t take it. Instead, she stands up for her decision saying she needs to look out for herself now, first and exits  After all, how many times can she feel less than by her own family?

Davidson’s final moments occurred on the plane taking Ashley to Paris where she toasts her exit from Genoa City and on to her new life, while Jack is devastated looking at the empty Abbott house, with a big question mark for the future of Jabot and with a huge rift with his sister that may never be repaired.

Following the airing of the episode,  some of the cast who shared many scenes over the years with Davidson offered their sentiments on Eileen’s departure from the series, on a post on the official Y&R facebook page.

Marla Adams shared: I love Eileen so much. We’ve had so many wonderful scenes together. When I returned to the show, we did a scene in the Abbott Living Room and at the end of the scene Eileen cried. I knew then that we would make magic together. I will miss her but respect her decision and hope to see her soon.”

Beth Maitland sharedL “From the moment we met on the set these many years ago, we were sisters. Ups and downs, life events and comings and goings, we were always returning to the foundation of those days, and I will forever be blessed by the times I have shared with Eileen.”

So, what did you think about how Ashley left Genoa City?  Did she do the right thing for herself? Will you miss Eileen?

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Abbott Family Drama Leaves Ashley To Make A Game-Changing Decision

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless continued the emotional and riveting Abbott family drama that flashes back to when Ashley, Traci, and Jack were kids, and then to the present day; which illustrates how their relationship as kids forever changed their grown-up paths in business, and with one another.

Last week featured some intricate writing and directing and heart-tugging performances by Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Peter Bergman (Jack), and Beth Maitland (Traci).  As we head into Monday, it will mark the final episode of Davidson as she heads off the canvas and departs the role that she originally became soap-famous for, and has played on and off since 1982.

In story, as we flash back to the Abbott house in the 1970’s, a young Ashley tells John about her science experiment.  She expresses that she thought that if she worked hard and won a ribbon at the science fair that her mother would love her like she has always loved Jack. Unfortunately, Dina had already left them all behind.  Now in the present, Ashley sits with Dina, who is slipping further and further into dementia from her battle with Alzheimer’s for an emotional conversation.  Abby overhears their chat and is moved to tears.  Ashley tells Dina that she thanks her, and how she must have looked out for her when making the legal documents that gave her the patents to Jabot.  Dina can’t recall anything that Ashley is saying.  We go to another flashback, where John has to assure Ashley that her mom didn’t leave the family and all of them behind, because of her.  When young Ashley cries, John promises to always be there for her, but little do they know a young Jack and Traci are overhearing this.  Then, when a young Jack wants to share his feelings with John about how he has been affected by Dina leaving them, John doesn’t let him share his emotions. He instead reminds Jack that he has to be strong for his sisters.

Meanwhile at Jabot, panic is setting in between Jack, Billy, Traci, Abby and Kyle about what this all means for the company if Ashley becomes CEO and has all the patents.  Abby tells the group about how much Ashley has felt unloved over the years. Traci tells everyone that not one of them is living up to the legacy that John Abbott has set, and that not one of them should be running Jabot now.

When Ashley shows up, Jack makes her a very lucrative offer on paper, which Ashley rips up  An upset Ashley throws it back at her brother.  Abby accuses her mom of going against everything John stood for. “Jack started it!” Ashley yells.  Even though the Abbott family tries to reassure Ashley that they love and respect her, (and respect is what she wants from them, and feels she is not getting) she exits needing time to think.  Jack doesn’t know how things got this bad.  Traci explains that Jack was left to hold the family together after Dina ran out on them.  A tearful Traci talks about Jack buying Ashley a cake when she won the science fair. Jack has a flash back to when he and a young Ashley were arguing over who was John’s favorite child  However, Jack worried that John wouldn’t always be around, so he promised that he would be there to help Ashley if she ever needed it.

Later, back at the Abbott home, Traci says she knows how much attention John lavished on Ashley; while Jack had no one to comfort him. Finally, Jack admits he was very jealous of his sisters.  Next, Ashley arrives firmly telling the group that she will not to take a back seat to anyone.  Jack still holds firm about her not being CEO.   Ashley then reveals a bombshell, not only is she turning down their offer, but she is taking the patents with her and leaving the family and the company for good, and plans to leave Genoa City!  Everyone is stunned.

Kudos to magnificent performances by Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman, and to Beth Maitland for delivering the “Power Performance of the Week” and reminding us all while she is still such a valuable asset to The Young and the Restless.

So, what have you thought about how Y&R has told the story of the Abbott children’s past and how it affect the present? What did you think about the performances?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, watch Ashley announce her big decision below.
