Jack rejects Diane when she strips down and attempts to lure him into supporting her and Kyle before she reveals Kyle’s true whereabouts. Diane is furious at Jack’s dismissive attitude and exclaims that Jack will never see Kyle again before storming out. Nick is outraged to learn that Diane sold revealing photos of Victor and Nikki in bed to the tabloid. Before he can set out to confront Diane, Victoria arrives with the bad news that Nikki is missing from rehab. When Diane receives a call from Nick, she rushes to meet him but is disappointed when Nick shows no compassion towards her. Nick insists he wants nothing more to do with Diane. Billy tries to reach out to Victoria when they both cross at the GCAC bar, but Victoria puts her guard up and reminds Billy that he was quiet dismissive to her just the other day. Billy does not fight Victoria’s resistance and simply sits down as he orders himself a drink. When Victor learns that Nikki is missing from her rehab center, he insists he will hop on the jet and find her at once. Michael reminds Victor that he was just released from jail and crossing state lines is not a good idea. Michael offers to go find Nikki. Tension flares as Phyllis interferes when Nick and Diane are fighting at Crimson Lights. Phyllis reminds Diane that she is violating the restraining order she filed against her and the cat fight ensues as Diane tears into Phyllis about her less than perfect past. Nick breaks up the cat fight and tells Diane to leave the people he cares about, including his family, alone. Jack confronts Billy at the GCAC bar about his growing dismissal of everyone around him, especially Victoria. Billy resists Jack’s suggestion to confront Victoria about their growing tension and instead orders yet another drink as Jack looks on in disapproval. Diane meets Ashley at Crimson Lights and confirms that she has Abby’s confession video in her possession, but attempts to bribe Ashley by insisting she can have it at a price. Ashley rejects her proposal, insisting that despite what Diane may think, nobody in Genoa City is intimidated by her threats. Diane flares, exclaiming that she did have sex with Tucker and it was very enjoyable. Ashley slaps Diane across the face before she can say any more.

Jack receives a call from Kyle but is having a hard time hearing him. Jack is shocked to learn that Kyle is in Switzerland and before he can find out Kyle’s exact location, the connection is lost. Michael moves to Diane quickly when she arrives while he is talking with Victor, insisting he will handle her. Michael pleads with Diane to leave town and offers to give her enough funds if she leaves Genoa City as soon as possible. When Michael starts to head back towards Victor, he stops in his tracks at the sight of Billy and Victor face to face. Victoria, Jack, and Abby are also tense at the sight of these two enraged men. Tempers flare as Victor bashes Billy for his vagrant ways, stepping towards Billy as they exchange heated words. Before everyone can stop them, Billy takes a swing at Victor, forcing Jack to grab him. Soon an officer arrives to break up the scuffle and escort Billy to the police station. Abby crosses paths with Adam later that night at the GCAC bar and is not at all amused with his small talk. Once Adam leaves with his sultry companion Elaine, Abby begins to drink heavily. A shadow rustles in the trees by the footbridge at the park. The moonlight reveals Diane’s lifeless body face down in the stream.

Murphy finds Diane’s lifeless body by the stream when he arrives to fish by the footbridge in the park. A frantic Murphy calls 911 to report that he has found Diane Newman dead in Town Park. Murphy then calls Kay to tell her of the horrible news. Adam begins to clean off the mud from his boots before heading out of his GCAC suite. He runs into Abby, who looks very disheveled after waking up from a black out induced slumber in the ladies bathroom with mud on her dress. Phyllis and Nick wake up entwined on the couch in the Restless Style office after spending the night together. Phyllis notices a scratch on Nick’s neck and suggests that perhaps she did it during the intense love making. As Phyllis looks down at her nails, she notices one is broken and most have dried dirt buried underneath. Phyllis quickly conceals them from Nick. Jack meets with Kay looking rather distressed and explains to Kay he had quiet a rough night. When Jack notices Adam, he excuses himself and approaches him, demanding to know where Diane sent Kyle away to. Kay receives a call from Murphy telling her that he found Diane’s body. Once off the phone, Kay moves to Jack and Adam to reveal the awful news of Diane’s death. Victor is attempting to leave town on his private jet when suddenly the cabin door opens to reveal two officers who have come to inform Victor that his bail prohibits leaving town. Despite Victor’s disapproval, he is arrested before being taking to GCPD. Jack is surprised to see Victoria at the police station and remembers that Billy was arrested. Jack tells Victoria of Diane’s death. Victoria is distraught when she learns that Jack was never able to find out where Diane sent Kyle in Switzerland. An officer brings Billy into the room and begins to thank Jack for posting bail, but Jack informs Billy that it was Victoria’s doing. Before Phyllis can head to the nail salon to repair her nails, a staffer arrives for work at Restless Style and informs Nick and Phyllis of Diane’s death. Victor arrives to the police station to find Jack talking with Spencer regarding the search for Kyle. Victor is subdued in his reaction when Jack tells him that Diane was found dead in Town Park. Ashley and Tucker worry that now that Diane’s dead, whatever dirt Diane had on Abby or anyone else close to her may not be kept a secret. After Adam throws away his muddy boots, Adam breaks into Diane’s GCAC suite in search of something. Adam appears to have no luck and moves out of the room just as the hotel manager is walking down the hall to let an officer into Diane’s suite.

Michael arrives to the police squad room demanding to know why Victor was rearrested. After learning that Victor attempted to leave town, Victor informs Michael that Diane was found dead in Town Park. Spencer adds that the M.E has ruled Diane’s death a homicide. Nina arrives back from LA and Jill learns she is distraught over not hearing from Chance. Murphy comforts the concerned women and tells them that sometimes no news is good news, having been a soldier himself. Nina tells Jill that she’s sure Kay knows someone high ranking in the military that could help track Chance down. Ashley confronts Tucker about Diane’s allegations that she and Tucker slept together. Tucker comes clean to Ashley and admits to sleeping with Diane. Ashley is devastated that Tucker denied having sex with Diane all this time and labeled Abby as a liar for telling Ashley that Tucker is a sleaze. Tucker begins his attempt to convince Ashley that he is committed to her but is interrupted when Kay arrives to inform them both that she will be challenging the validity of their marriage due to Tucker’s lack of mental competence. At the police station, Michael defends Victor’s attempt to leave Genoa City to Spencer, telling him that Victor was not attempting to flee but rather going to Nikki’s rehab facility to search for her. Jack receives a list of eleven boys around Kyle’s age that arrives unaccompanied in Switzerland. Jack, Michael and Victor ask for Spencer’s help in contacting the schools that Kyle may be boarding in. Michael receives a call informing him that Nikki is safe and back at the rehab facility. Victor is relieved to learn that Nikki just needed some time alone and that is why she had left the rehab. Spencer agrees to let Victor be released. Jack is giving details about Kyle on the phone but does not recognize the name associated with the boy that matches Kyle’s physical description so he asks if they can send a picture to verify.

Spencer receives a call from the mayor informing him that Genoa City will be bringing in a high profile detective to oversee Diane’s murder case. Paul and Detective Mauro are looking at the creek bed and discussing that a former FBI agent will be leading the investigation. Paul is dumbfounded when he hears a voice say “He’s here now”, and turns to see Ronan. Paul is stunned when Ronan arrives at the park and begins examining the area that Diane’s body was found. Paul bluntly reminds Ronan that he owes a lot of people in Genoa City answers as to why he snuck out of town with Chance’s liver and never looked back. Ronan coldly tells Paul that his only obligation right now is to find Diane’s killer. Billy gets a call from Rafe as he enters his and Victoria’s home informing him that the judge ruled against Billy having any further contact with Delia. Before he can absorb this blow, Victoria enters through the front door and is shocked to see Billy. Billy tells Victoria that he came to grab the rest of his things from the house, but before he can grab his suitcase, Victoria pleads with him to stay and talk with her. Jack confronts Adam and accuses him of killing Diane. Adam smugly denies that he had anything to do with Diane’s death and scrutinizes Jack for not even knowing where Kyle is. Jack becomes furious and pushes Adam against the wall, demanding that Adam tell him everything he knows about Kyle’s whereabouts. Billy and Victoria cannot fight the true feelings they have for each other and begin to make love after Victoria asks Billy to stay. When they are done, Victoria cannot hold back and confesses that she believes she wouldn’t be the woman she is today without Billy. Victoria moves off to make the two of them coffee, and when she exits into the kitchen, Billy gets up and goes to look inside the package he had noticed when he entered. Billy is overcome with emotion when he removes the painting Victoria had done of them dressed up like Hefner and his Bunny. He quickly places it back in the box, grabs his suitcase, and leaves. Adam tells Jack that he has no idea of Kyle’s whereabouts and Jack begins to leave Adam’s GCAC suite when Ronan arrives to bring them both in for questioning regarding Diane’s murder investigation. Jack insists he had planned to leave for Switzerland in search of Kyle, but Ronan informs him that he is unable to leave the country. When Adam and Jack arrive to GCPD with Ronan, Victor and Michael are just finalizing Victor’s release papers. Victor offers to go search for Kyle himself, but Ronan abruptly informs him that Victor will need to be questioned on his whereabouts on the night of Diane’s murder.

After Jack, Victor, and Adam are moved to another room, the Coroner arrives to inform Paul and Ronan that Diane’s cause of death was blunt force trauma. Both Paul and Ronan are stunned to learn that Diane was bashed in the head ten times with a rock. After being questioned by Ronan, Jack receives the picture of “Timothy Bilton” via email and is relieved to see that it is Kyle. Jack instantly tells Paul that he needs to book at flight to Switzerland immediately, but Paul reminds him that Ronan specifically told Jack he cannot leave the country. When Paul asks Ronan if Jack can leave to find Kyle, Ronan hesitantly agrees. Jack leaves right before a CSI tech arrives with evidence of six other people Diane sent texts to the night of her death.  Victoria’s heart sinks when she returns to the living room to find Billy and the suitcase gone. Sitting alone in a first class plane seat, Billy turns off his phone before soaring away from Genoa City.

Phyllis and Nick are reviewing a story at Restless Style when Jack arrives and announces that he is heading to Switzerland to get Kyle. Jack tells them that Ronan has questioned him on his whereabouts the night of Diane’s death because of recent evidence that Diane sent him a text before she was killed. Phyllis tells Jack and Nick that Diane also sent her a text the night she was murdered asking her to meet in the park. Jack warns Phyllis to be ready for Ronan to interrogate her. Just as Victoria is finishing up a voicemail to Billy asking him to let her know where he ran off too, Victor arrives with news that Ronan has already began questioning Victor about Diane’s death. Victor notes that because the lawsuit Diane filed against Nikki was public record, Ronan could conclude that both Victoria and Nick had motive to harm Diane for going after their mother. Victoria assures Victor she has nothing to hide. Adam finds Abby at the bar still attempting to nurse her hangover and suggests they use each other as an alibi since both of them were at the bar the night of Diane’s death. Abby recalls lunging at Diane in the park for the key that allegedly unlocks the safe harboring her confession. Abby comes back to reality and is reluctant to accept Adam’s alibi offer, despite her foggy recollection of her actions the night of Diane’s death. Nick admits to receiving a text from Diane the night of her death as well. Nick and Phyllis tell each other that they of course ignored Diane’s request to meet at the park. They decide that since they were both working all night at the Restless Style office, they have an alibi in case Ronan questions them. Sure enough, Ronan arrives and is skeptical of Nick and Phyllis’ story that they both stayed all night at the office. Ronan notices Phyllis’ fresh manicure and is suspicious of Phyllis’ claim that she went to the nail salon before her office sleepover. At GCAC, Abby tells Victor that Adam attempted to get her to agree on an alibi for the night of Diane’s murder. As Victor asks Abby if she really did see Diane last night, Ronan arrives demanding to know the answer to that same question. Abby insists she was at the bar the entire night, but the bartender cannot fully recollect how long Abby stayed. Ronan reads the autopsy report and reviews the photos associated with the crime scene. He picks up an envelope to reveal at tiny silver key that had been removed from Diane’s mouth after she was found. Another baggy contains a broken acrylic nail. A photo reveals an imprint of a Harvard ring found on Diane’s forearm.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Sheila and Deacon Team Up

The Forresters are really going to get what’s coming to them after their rantings to Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan), and previously Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown)!

Now mind you, they have good reason, but obviously their tirades, slaps, and holier than thou attitudes, are going to serve as the impetus for these two super-villains to dish out some payback.

On Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, after Deacon previously arrived on the scene to see his daughter, Hope (Annika Noelle), fresh out of his prison term, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) demanded that Hope tell Deacon that he cannot be a part of her life. Mind you, Hope, had already admitted that she was sending letters to Deacon while he was in prison this whole time.

In turn, Deacon showed Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Liam (Scott Clifton) and Brooke, said letters.  Now with everyone hating on Deacon, he tells Hope he is going to leave, because he does not want to cause her any pain.  Ridge calls him out for that touching, little speech, which no one believes, and then Brooke and Liam tell Deacon to leave with Brooke punctuating it with a “Just leave, Deacon. That’s something you’re good at.”

Later, after his hideous encounter with the Forresters, Deacon is having a drink at the Il Giardino when who should saddle up to the bar … Sheila!  Now sitting next to each other and realizing who each other is, the conversation turns to their issues with the Forresters, with Sheila coming up with the idea that they should work together after hearing what happened at the cabin with Hope and the rest of the clan.  Sheila admits she has child, a son, that she wants to be close to as well who is married to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) ! Deacon is, at first, shocked. She goes on to say how the Forresters are cutting her out of Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) life, just like they are trying to cut Deacon out of Hope’s life.

Sheila implores Deacon to not give up on Hope, as she is not giving up on Finn.  Then she adds: “With the two of them together, they are going to get what they want and the Forresters don’t stand a chance!”  Sheila lets out one of her maniacal laughs as Deacon looks on nervous and probably down right scared of what he just got himself into.

But how delicious were the scenes between Kimberlin Brown and Sean Kanan? They were great playing off each other and we can’t wait for more.

Watch a key scene between Sheila and Deacon from today’s episode below.   Followed by our recent Michael Fairman Channel with Kimberlin and Tanner Novlan.

Then let us know in the comment section, if you are excited by Sheila and Deacon teaming-up to reign terror on the Forresters? Our bet? And probably yours too? They are going to somehow push Finn and Hope together!
