THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Amanda Walks Out On Devon, Chance Walks Out On Abby

Courtesy/CBS

After walking in on Devon (Bryton James) and Abby (Melissa Ordway) quite cozy, making out, and naked on the couch, Amanda (Mishael Morgan) and Chance (Conner Floyd) react to seeing the betrayal by their significant others!

Chance walks out on the scene, as Abby goes chasing after him, while Amanda demands answers from Devon.

“Really, Devon? That’s what you want? The tall blonde? … Amanda goes off, while Devon can only say that he didn’t plan this, it just happened.  Devon says he didn’t know Amanda was returning to genoa City.  Next, Amanda tells Devon to put on the rest of his clothes as she throws them at him.

Devon inquires as to why Amanda came home early.  After taking a drink to calm her nerves, she asks, “What does that matter?”  Amanda informs Devon that Naya regained consciousness, but her recovery from the stroke is going much slower than doctors hoped.  Devon says he is sorry, to which Amanda snaps back, “Is that why you were running around naked with Abby.”  She adds that she is sorry too, because she’ll be spending a lot more time in Virginia. Amanda admits she came back to tell Devon in-person, because she felt she owed him that. Seething with betrayal, Amanda snipes to Devon, “Because you have been so incredibly patient!”

Meanwhile, Abby tracks down Chance at the Chancellor Mansion and tells him she doesn’t understand how this happened with Devon.  Chase says he does.  He has seen the bond between Abby and Devon for months. Chance adds, “This didn’t come out of nowhere … this was all oddly inevitable.”  Knowing that Devon is Dominic’s biological father, just makes matters worse between the couple.

Abby adds that Devon is always there for her and Dominic and never tells her that work matters more.  Chance told Abby he phoned her and left a message, which she realized she never listened to because she was making out with Devon.  In it, he told her he wanted to make his marriage work. A disappointed and disillusioned Chance, shares that he wants to: make somebody happy, be able to be himself, and have that be enough for someone.  Chance admits to Abby, “That’s not what we have. I think it’s time we face that reality.”  A crushed Abby realizes Chance may be right, and before he leaves, he asks her to give him time and to respect that.

Back at the penthouse, as she gets ready to leave, Amanda tells Devon she has family who needs her now and it’s very clear he does not need her at all. She informs Devon she’ll send for the rest of her things. Devon professes his love her, but then Dominic starts crying. Amanda and Devon hear it on the walkie-talkie. Amanda tells him to go to his son and with that she storms out of Devon’s life for what might be forever.

Throughout the scenes, Mishael Morgan certainly reminded us all why she is a powerhouse and a Daytime Emmy-winner.   This story also paved the way for another exit, since she has gone on recurring status with the show.

So, what did you think of the Chance/Abby, Devon/Amanda break-up scenes?  Do you think these relationships are repairable? Would you be down for Devon and Abby as the end game? Let us know in the comment section.  But first, check out Amanda’s goodbye to Devon below.

This Chance has never worked. No chemistry with anyone.

I don’t know, Shari. I mean, Abby had no chemistry with Stitch either. She’s not the warmest character. I agree Chance is on the dull side but he’s so cute and seems like a likeable fellow. I’m going to give him another chance (wow, how corny is that?) with someone new. I just hope it’s someone less emasculating than Abby. Imagine being interrogated by your partner for stopping for coffee after a long day at work…but, I’m glad that the paragon of virtue known as Devon has been exposed. Nate was right about him. He had the same “control” issues… Read more »

I really like Conner Floyd s Chance. He seems cool and calm . The only good thing about the hook up was Amanda and Chance walking in on it and hopefully dumping those two duds on the couch. Hopefully Abby and Devon leave together, unbelievable how boring and basic those two are. Bryton and Melissa keep getting stories but the two are just a complete bore! After they were exposed I ffwd all the Abby and Devon scenes. It’s like torture

This Chance has grown on me, but it took a while as I think Abby had real chemistry with Donny Boaz – loved them together.

I’ve also liked Chance better recently when he’s been ‘out and about’ doing his job or interacting with other characters.

This seems to be a pattern with Devon. Not a smart move! Does he think he will be able to make Abby happy?? HA!!! I will.miss Mishael Morgan. They finally give her something to bite her teeth into – AT HER EXIT!!

I agree, Lew, particularly after her great scenes this week with Phyllis. It’s such a thrill seeing two great actresses at the top of their game creating such memorable scenes. I got the same charge watching the great Nicola Walker & Sarah Lancashire in LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX. Regarding Devon…I don’t know where the legend of his great moral purity got started but it’s as phony as that doll playing Dominic. He betrayed Neil with Hilary and constantly humiliated Anna when she was managing Fenmore. That’s why she left town. Then he got the ball rolling that sent Lily to… Read more »

Lee, I was thinking the same thing about MM. I loved when she yelled at the hapless Devon, clad in his tiny, black briefs, “ Tall and blonde!!! Is that what you want!!!?” Boy, Devon sure knows how to trade down. Princess is a spoiled brat. In her so called apology speech to Chance, she sniveled and whined and basically blamed him for making her cheat on him. So to unwind after a hard day of work, he had the unmitigated gall to unwind in a coffee shop instead of rushing home to bow down at the alter of the… Read more »

Not true. Morgan won her Emmy on a Front Burner storyline. She is choosing to leave. The writers had to break them up. And at the end if the day, this tryst has been the most drama in quite some time. I hope Morgan will come back but she can do so much more. I wish her much success.

Harry
Guest
Harry

I disagree.This is the first time Morgan has had her own storyline as Amanda. Prior to this, she was either weeping about her mother, a woman viewers didn’t know or care about, or offering Devon support with his idiotic, egotistical custody fight. I’m glad she was given an exit storyline worthy of her acting chops.

Agreed, John—Abby and Devon are my least favorite characters. But, at least, the tedium was somewhat shaken. There has not been any stimulating scene, sexual or otherwise, on this show since forever, as boring as eating polenta. Nonetheless, if it had been any other character combination, other than these two—-such as Chance and Phyllis? Ohh, Boy!! I do believe Phyllis would have awakened every dead nerve cell in his body. I agree with many of the above comments—Abby is always complaining about something ( I’ve said this a few weeks ago)— a never satisfied kvetch —not very inspiring—and, nuChance doesn’t… Read more »

Wow’ is it just me, or is Victoria turning into a real cow? Watching the episode where she kicked Sally out of her office, I was disgustedwith what a nasty piece of work she’s become!

Victoria has never had to struggle to get where she is as her daddy fed her the CEO position with a silver spoon. She’s never had to scramble to make ends meet the way Sally has. She just casually fires both Sally and Chloe with nary a flickering of empathy and then becomes irate that Sally is still in her office packing up her belongings. I keep waiting for Victoria to receive her comeuppance but I don’t see that ever happening.

Soaphound

Oh Steven, she’s not just a cow but the bull as well. At least Victor would have a valid reason to fire someone. Victoria is just a vengeful shrew. And what’s worse, she has no valid axe to grind with Sally. And what about kicking Chloe to the curb when Kevin has helped Newman Enterprises on many occasions? Insider trading? “I’ll take my chances”, she purrs. No conscience, either! And on top of that, we’re continually told what a great mom she is. Please! She couldn’t keep a Venus fly trap alive. Now she’s making googoo eyes at Nate…more inappropriate… Read more »

You obviously did not watch the original adult Victoria as played by Heather Tom. Her version of Victoria was just a surly, hostile, entitled b*tch, often for no reason at all. Granted, that is also how the character was written. But Amelia Heinle is the longest running Victoria, and her natural warmth, grace and heart permeate the character even when she is not being nice. She shows the reasons for her actions often just with a look or with body language. Her being tough in business is out of necessity … It is not just her being a b*tch. She… Read more »

JJ You know the saying.Fools Rush In, well here goes. You and Soaphound are both right in many ways. I remember Heather Tom as the totaly spoiled brat, Victoria who now lives to please daddy. She has more of something, lacking in a lot of men, but I think she is only admirable to a man. She actually reminds me of a much younger Jill, who did whatever it took to get what she wanted, but didn’t have a daddy for props. Victoria goes after what she wants with a vengeance and as Soaphound said, no conscience. It’s like the… Read more »

JJ — 2 things: (1) Yes I did see Heather Tom’s Victoria since I’ve been a viewer since 1973. So the condescension is misplaced on me. (2) I don’t use or attach the “b” word to anyone; my whole point is that being “tough” is not my issue with Victoria. It’s her being unfair, judgmental, and too easily swayed when HER feelings are involved. There’s no defensible reason to fire Sally or Chloe other than a personal dislike and/or vendetta. That’s poor behavior for ANY CEO. If I were Sally, I’d bring a harassment suit on Newman and wrongful termination,… Read more »

Soaphound I will say it, Victoria is a bitch! She hasn’t been somewhat bearable, since she fell.in love with Ashland, while played by Richard Burgi. She will use Nate, until she has no further use of him. The job comes with a price!!

Be that as it may, JJ, the character ( Victoria/Heinle) has made a complete reversal. This is not the Victoria I remember. Y&R has always been my No.1 soap and I was so glad Heather left. Amelia was a breath of fresh air—I would run up to my dorm between classes just to watch the show….I wasn’t going to wait to watch the recording, LOL. My point is–Victoria has changed drastically and dramatically. Being tough is one thing; becoming manipulative and devious by using under-the-counter tactics is not what I would have expected. She’s become so cold and unfeeling towards… Read more »

Yup. Steven Ryan—I think we all saw this transformation coming—-now that Daddy Dear is aging and possibly retiring ( both the character and the actor), someone must inherit the reins. Obviously, Nick is simply too meek, for lack of a better word—-not aggressive or devious enough to walk in Satan’s shoes—or does the Devil wear boots? I think that besides what I just opined, Victoria has become jaded—perhaps the impenetrable, harsh façade she seems to display, is in her genes—-Or, due to several marital hardships she has had to endure. I’m not liking this side of her—she will soon start… Read more »

Dear Celia, some of my best YR memories are about Miss Nikki’s “origins”, which I wouldn’t care about except for her increasingly obnoxious haughtiness. I’ll always treasure these tropes from Victor: “You were nothing but a pole strippah! I picked you up from the guttah! Dancing for men on a pole. Now I can’t stahnd you!” Good times.

Yes, I’ve heard all about Nikki’s early days on Y&R from my grandmother–“Cheeky” is what she called her.. LOL
I love your style of writing—it reminds me of Shay—always to the point. I wish….I go on and on—I remember being told by my English teacher to be concise—She kept assigning short stories where I would have to write one précis after another.
Ciao bella…

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn Knows His Toes; Hope Lays Into Thomas

Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured two key story points. First, Finn (Tanner Novlan) is finally using his doctor brain/skills …  and putting all the pieces together to come to the conclusion that his bio-mom, the evil Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown), faked her own death, and her cut-off toe (the one that was supposedly severed when Sheila was attacked by a bear) that was presented as evidence, may not be as it appears.

Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who is in Finn’s office asks her husband, “You really think Sheila Carter cut off her own toe?” Finn replies, “You always told me she was capable of anything. She knew that we would never stop looking for her. Faking her own death was the only way out.”

Meanwhile, while hiding out at Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), Sheila is painting all nine of her toenails, and goes on to herself about how sacrificing her toe for her freedom is a little price to pay.  Later, Sheila tells Deacon about her sacrifice and the agony she went through to stay out of prison and that she will never turn herself in. Deacon tells her it’s time to do just that, or he will turn her in! Sheila is looking mighty pissed off to hear this from Deacon.

Back at Finn’s office, Finn and then Steffy examine Sheila’s toe under the microscope, where he points out that it’s too clean, there are no marks from a bear attack.  Sheila had to have done this to herself. Steffy is freaked knowing Sheila is alive, but Finn promises to never let Sheila hurt them again, professing, “I will find Sheila Carter and she will go to prison for the rest of her life!”

In the showdown we’ve been waiting for, Hope (Annika Noelle) throws down on Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) in the offices of Forrester Creations.  Hope asks Thomas how he can even have the nerve to show his face around the company, adding  “You really are shameless, aren’t you?” She goes to say that she believed in him.  Thomas tries to get a word in edge-wise to attempt to somehow explain his machinations, but Hope shuts him down before he can speak. Hope calls him out for sabotaging Brooke and Ridge’s marriage and using Douglas, his son to do it. Thomas says he can handle everything else falling apart around him, but not his connection to Hope and his son.

Hope is devastated by Thomas’ devious plot to call CPS posing as her mother.  She points out that the call never should have been made and he should never have asked their son to lie. “Now he doesn’t even want to see you anymore,” she exclaims.  Thomas doesn’t believe it, but Hope says it’s true and it’s all his doing.  Just then, Thomas starts blaming Donna. That was the final straw, and Hope finally loses it and screams, “Stop, Thomas! This is on you! You were the one who put him in the middle of this! I can’t believe I ever trusted you again.” She really goes for Thomas’ jugular when Hope says Liam and her mother were right about him all along.  Thomas asks Hope not to give up on him.  Shocked, he even had the nerve to ask her that, an emotional Hope says, “I let my guard down, I did. And then you tried to kiss me. You crossed a line.”  Thomas says he is a one-woman man and that is for Hope. She defiantly responds, “I love Liam. Never you, especially after this betrayal.”

Hope adds that she can’t bear the thought of working with Thomas again.  She ends her tirade by saying to Thomas’ face: “All I see is a sad, pathetic man who kept me from Beth, who didn’t care about his son’s safety so he called CPS on himself.”  Next, Hope leaves the office to which under his breath, Thomas responds, “You didn’t give me a chance to explain.”

As the episode came to its conclusion, we go back to Sheila outside of Deacon’s, now donning a blonde wig and in full disguise, and she says … “There always a way out.”  We fade to black … but not before a signature scary look from Kimberlin Brown as Sheila!

So, what did you think about Finn deducing the problem with the police evidence of Sheila’s toe? What did you think of the performance of Annika Noelle as Hope gave Thomas a piece of her mind and then some? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge Makes a Beeline to Brooke

Now that Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) duplicity and machinations are all out and the open, and Taylor (Krista Allen) also kept her mouth shut right before her wedding to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), the question on B&B fans minds is … what on earth will Ridge to do next?

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Ridge really lit into his son.  After finding out Thomas called Child Protective Services, pretending to be Brooke (by using Douglas’ voice-changing app), Ridge fumes that his son is in need of some serious help; adding that what he did was sick and twisted. Ridge tells Thomas he is also going to talk to Eric (John McCook) about Thomas’ place at Forrester Creations.

Courtesy/CBS

In his overwhelming sense of betrayal, Ridge yells at his son: “I gave you life! I gave you love, I gave you support, and you took it all. Is there anything else you can possibly take from me? I was so proud of you! It makes me sick to look at you.”  Those words stung and Thomas was left in tears in another excellent performance by Matthew Atkinson.

Now, Ridge had a major decision to make – what to do about his bride, Taylor.  No matter how much Taylor, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Thomas tried to make Ridge realize that he belongs with Taylor, and that this is an opportunity for them to be a family again, Ridge is torn.

Previously, Taylor admitted to not fessing up to Ridge about what she learned right before the nuptials (that Thomas made the call to CPS as Brooke) saying she was scared and confused since she was one step away from becoming his wife. “My God Ridge, I love you so much,” she says. Ridge tells Taylor that he loves her too, but he’s going to set this situation straight.  Next thing you know, Ridge walks out as a devastated Taylor is left crying on the couch with Steffy trying to comfort her, and Thomas’ life imploding before him.

Next, Brooke gets a surprise visitor at her door when Ridge arrives. A shocked Brooke listens as Ridge tells her that he learned something today that she needs to know. He starts with, “I should have had more faith in you.”

Ridge goes on to explain that he was so certain, that she was the one who called CPS on Thomas.  Brooke is stunned!  She tells Ridge she never made such a call. That’s when Ridge shares he knows that now as it was Thomas who manipulated the situation to blow up their marriage. Ridge claims he knew in his heart of hearts that Brooke would never do something like this. Before the episode fades to black, Ridge admits to Brooke, “I am more sorry than I can say.”

Now let us know, what do you think will happen next? Will Brooke be so hurt that Ridge had such little faith in her that she will not take him back? Will Ridge head back to the Forresters and get married to Taylor, anyway?  Comment below.  But, first check out the final scene between Brooke and Ridge from yesterday’s B&B.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Courtesy/ABC

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.
