Nick stops by to see Summer before she and Phyllis leave and Nick and Phyllis have a civil conversation, finally realizing everything that they are losing by ending their marriage. Later, Nick shows up at Sharon’s with a copy of the newspaper with Sharon and Adam on the front page.  As Chris and Paul are meeting to talk about the kiss they shared last night, Heather, Sid and Ronan arrive to tell them that Chance plead not guilty at this arraignment to make sure he went to jail. They all fear the danger Chance’s actions will put him in. In jail, Chance tries to get the inmates to sell to him. Heather comes up with an idea to help Chance and takes Ronan and Sid with her, while Chris and Paul decide to go see Nina, unaware that she witnessed their kiss last night. Later, Heather and Ronan ask Owen to drop the charges against Chance in order to protect their case but Owen refuses and Ronan decides that it is time to go see the warden. Chance finds his way in when his cellmate is also ex-army and tells him he will try to get him what he needs. As Vance, Adam and Skye are going over everything for Adam’s trial, Vance assures Adam that he has everything under control but wonders if there is anything Adam hasn’t told him and Adam flashes back to his confession to Sharon. Adam admits that he confessed everything to her and Skye goes ballistic. Adam turns on her, saying that Skye could never understand what he and Sharon feel for one another and Skye laughs at the thought that Adam is still holding out hope for a reconciliation. Meanwhile, Sharon gets overwhelmed by everything Adam and Nick tries to remind her of everything he has done to the people Sharon loves. Nick realizes that Adam has gotten to her and now she doesn’t want to testify against him. Nick wonders if her feelings for Nick are stopping her from getting up on the stand and stopping Adam. Chris and Paul show up to support Nina and she tells them that she was surprised by what she saw outside Gloworm last night. They immediately realize that Nina thinks that they slept together and start explaining that it was nostalgia, a kiss and nothing more. Meanwhile, Heather and Ronan try to have Chance moved from general population but Chance continues to refuse. Later, Chance manages to score drugs from his cellmate. Later, Chris, Paul, Ronan and Heather meet after all else fails and realize that they need to find a way to get Chance out of jail before he gets himself hurt or worse.  Adam refuses to let Vance attack Sharon on the stand, no matter what she says. Meanwhile, Nick tells Sharon that the reason this all started was because she was trying to get over him and now that Phyllis has left him and if Adam goes to jail they will finally have a chance to get back what they lost. As Nick moves to check on Faith, Adam arrives and Sharon goes outside to talk to him. Sharon tells him she knows what he is up to. Later, Adam tells Sharon that he is okay with her telling the truth in court and promises her that no one will come after her. Meanwhile, Skye tells Vance to go after Sharon with everything.

While Chance is meeting with Nina, Meeks is nearby talking to Chance’s cellmate who tells him about the earlier drug exchange and Meeks tells him that when Chance “accidentally” gets killed it will look like a dirty cop was killed in prison. Cane and Lily are ecstatic when the doctor tells them that the twins can go home today. Neil and Sofia are at business meeting and tensions are high as Neil gets a call from Malcolm about the babies coming home and leaves, not telling Sofia where he is going. At Cane’s, Lily’s entire family gathers as Neil holds his grandchildren for the first time. Lily and Neil have father daughter moment as she watches him with her children. Moments later, Sofia arrives and calls Neil out on excluding her and Malcolm is none too thrilled by his brother’s behavior. Nikki is none to thrilled that Meggie is continuing to live the high life on Victor’s dime. Nikki tells Victor that she will handle Meggie and Victor can make sure that Adam gets what he deserves. Later, Nikki confronts Meggie and tells her that she is taking advantage of Victor’s generosity. Nikki promises her that if she is scamming them, Shaw Roberts is nothing compared to the wrath of Victor Newman. Tucker surprises the Abbotts when he flies Traci into town for Adam’s hearing, knowing that they will need her support. Abby arrives and is thrilled to see her aunt but isn’t sure she is welcome in the mansion. Traci finds Abby outside and assures her that everything will okay and brings her in to see the rest of her family. Ashley and Abby have a strong mother daughter moment as Ashley reminds her that no matter what she does she still loves her. Ashley tells Traci that she is glad Tucker won’t be in court today because she doesn’t want him to hear about her past struggle with her mental health. Nearby, Billy and Jack lean on one another as they each deal with their own heartbreak. Adam promises Sharon she has nothing to worry about on the stand just as Nick comes out and Adam leaves. Nick tells her not to believe him but Sharon tells him that his time she actually does. Skye tells Vance to annihilate Sharon but Adam arrives and overhears them and warns them both to leave Sharon alone. Nick pushes Sharon not to trust Adam and Sharon loses her cool with both of them, telling Nick she won’t let her guard down with either of them again. Nikki finds a note from Meggie saying that she left the ranch for good and Nikki calls Meggie to find out what she is doing. Meggie tells her that she isn’t staying anywhere that she isn’t wanted. Nikki tells her that she isn’t letting her go anywhere because Victor would never forgive her if happened to Meggie but Nikki continues to remain skeptical. Later, Nikki comes to pick Meggie up at the coffeehouse and finds Shaw with her; Nikki attacks him, assuming that Shaw is there to hurt Meggie and tells someone to call 911. Nikki apologizes for ever doubting Meggie. Everyone is thrilled by Sofia’s arrival in their lives, except Neil. Tucker drops by to welcome the twins home and Cane and Lily thank them for helping find a solution to Cane’s deportation problem. Neil is caught off guard, not realizing that that was what his meeting with Sofia was about this morning and Malcolm asks what his problem is and demands that it stop now. Sharon takes the stand against Adam in the hearing and doesn’t miss a beat telling the judge everything that Adam did. Vance pleads with Adam to let him attack Sharon but Adam tells him that he has already made his decision. Tucker enters the courtroom to support Ashley and Ashley starts to panic.

Adam remains adamant that Vance lay off Sharon on the stand and everyone is shocked when the judge allows Sharon to be dismissed. Outside the court, Tucker is thrown when Ashley doesn’t want him to stay for her testimony just as she is being called to the stand. Later, Victor helps Sharon come to grips with the fact that her testimony will be the main reason Adam’s case will go to trial. On the stand, Ashley tells her story about the times Adam tried to make her think she was losing her mind. Vance takes his shot at Ashley and tries to destroy her credibility. When Ashley steps down she is stunned when she sees Tucker standing in the back of the courtroom, but finds comfort with her sister and daughter. Victoria runs into Jill at the club and is surprised to hear that Billy fired her from Restless Style and even more surprised to learn that Jill was the one that leaked the information about Newman to Tucker. Later, Victoria goes to the magazine to wait for Billy. Meanwhile, Jill tells Tucker that he had better hold up his end of the bargain or else. Tucker, however, tells her to calm down and immediately makes the call as Ashley shows up. Jill leaves and Ashley apologizes for what he heard in court and offers to step down as Jabot’s CEO. At the court, Vance goes on a crusade to prove that everyone taking the stand against Adam had a vendetta against him. After court convenes, Nick follows Sharon out and asks her if she promised Adam anything in return for him going easy on her on the stand and Sharon loses it. She tells him she told the truth on the stand and wonders what Nick’s problem is. Victor and Jack walk in on their argument and Victor tells Nick that he needs to stop looking for trouble because they already have more than enough. Abby admits to Traci that she wishes there was more she could do to help Ashley right now. Tucker tells Ashley that she won’t be stepping down and he doesn’t think any less of her after what he heard today, if anything else he has more respect for her for what she has overcome. Meanwhile, at the magazine, Victoria tries to apologize to Billy for jumping to the wrong conclusions but Billy doesn’t understand why she immediately took her father’s word without believing him when he said that he loved her and wouldn’t hurt her, no matter what. Neither one is willing to take the first step so Victoria leaves. Jill calls Tucker’s P.I. to start investigating her birth parents. Meanwhile, Traci gives Abby some much needed advice and tells her that she might want to try reminding her parents how much she loves them once in awhile. Later, Sharon thanks Adam for keeping his word.  Paul stops by to support Nina as she worries not only about Chance being in jail but because it’s her other son’s birthday. At the coffeehouse, Chris reminds Ronan that it’s his birthday as well, but he is all too willing to forget as Heather approaches. She asks Chris if she has heard from the D.O.J. yet about Chance’s release and Chris tells her that although it should be soon it can’t be soon enough for Chance. At the jail, Chance continues to cover while Chloe is visiting with him but when she doesn’t believe a word of it, she shows him the drugs he scored from one of the inmates and she is stunned. Later, Chance opens up Chloe and tells her the truth about the drugs and the case and asks her to take the drugs and hide them as evidence but she refuses to do anything that could put Chance in more danger.

Malcolm and Sofia have an argument about where they are going to live and Sofia leaves to deal with work rather than figuring things out. Downstairs, Tucker is meeting with Neil and tells him that he found out that Victor has been bribing a Japanese official. As Sofia arrives she hears Neil ask Tucker if they rumors are true that Tucker is trying to take Beauty of Nature from Newman. Later, Neil warns Tucker what he is getting into with trying to take B of N from Victor, knowing what it means to both Victor and Victoria – going to war. Victor is stunned when Meggie and Nikki tell him about their close call with Shaw at the coffeehouse. Realizing the danger that Meggie is in now, Nikki offers to make Meggie her assistant so she can stay out of town and still make some money. Meanwhile, Neil tells Tucker and Sofia that he won’t help them go to war with Victor or endanger Chancellor in anyway just as Victor and Michael arrive to meet with the Chief D.O.J. officer in Genoa City. Tucker is none too pleased that Victor is taking the power out of his hands. Later, Nikki is impressed by Meggie’s effectiveness as her assistant. Heather pleads with Chris and Ronan to tell Chance the truth about their undercover operation but Ronan stands his ground and Chris makes the call that it isn’t their last resort yet. Meanwhile, Paul promises Nina that her son turned out okay because he had her as a mother. Later, Ronan starts to become suspicious of Meeks when Meeks tries to plant seeds of doubt about Chance with Ronan but Ronan knows better. Later, the inmates who were plotting with Meeks plan Chance’s murder. Chloe meets with Ronan and tells him about her conversation with Chance. Ronan is shocked how deeply Chance got in and so quickly and asks Chloe to go back in and get the drugs from Chance. At the jail, Chance slips the drugs to Heather. Later, Chance learns that he has been released but refuses to leave. Chloe runs into Heather as she returns to the jail to see Chance and they are both rocked by an explosion. They fear the worst until Chance comes running out of the jail and Heather moves to embrace Chance as Chloe leaves. Nina starts to panic when she hears about the explosion and is extremely relieved when Chance walks in with Heather. Chance calls Chloe to check in and tells her about Nina’s other son. Ronan meets with Chloe at Jimmy’s as Chloe is throwing herself a pity party after what happened at the jail and Chloe notices that Ronan’s birthday is today, the same day as Chance’s brother. Later, Chance tells Heather that the drugs he bought came the evidence room and Heather suggests they go to Owen to set up a sting. Meanwhile, Meeks tells Owen that Chance escaped the explosion and Owen orders them to make sure not to screw it up a second time. At Jimmy’s, Chloe starts to put the pieces together about Ronan and Nina’s missing son. Malcolm decides to give Sofia what she wants and signs a lease for the upscale condo rather than the house in the suburbs. Meanwhile, Victor tells Tucker that the DOJ is being understanding the misunderstanding in Japan and that he will fail if he continues to try to take over Beauty of Nature.

As Victor and Nikki wait to hear the judge’s ruling on Adam’s case, Victor thinks back on a time before Adam was born when Victor and Hope feared for his welling being and when the first time Victor held his son. Victor remembers the day that Hope dying and her decision to tell Adam the truth about Victor being his father and he realizes that her decision to tell him changed their lives forever. Victor remembers the day that Hope died and what it did to Adam, as he cried in despair next to her grave. Victor tells Nikki about the day Adam came to Genoa City to accept Victor’s job offer and when he changed his name to Adam Wilson, Victor should have known then what it meant. Adam was looking for anything but family. After Victor came back from Mexico he remembers how Adam took over his family and tried to dismantle Newman and the very real disappointment he felt having to fire his own son. After Adam went to jail for forging the diary Victor still didn’t turn his back on him and remembers when Adam learned he was losing his sight and decided to reach out to his son once again, which turned out to be a fatal error in judgment. Victor continued to give him chance after chance, even as he and Nick were at each other’s throats. Victor remembers the night in the cabin, knowing that he could’ve killed his own son for everything he did to his family that night. Moments later, Victor gets the call that court is reconvening. In court, the judge rules in Adam’s favor, finding that there isn’t sufficient evidence for Adam’s case to go to trial and everyone is furious while Adam and Skye are thrilled and a little stunned. Later, Victor offers to pay for Justin Hightower’s college education and makes sure that he has all the advantages in life that he lost when he lost his father. Victor and Nikki ask everyone to come back to the ranch to discuss the situation with Adam and they all agree as Adam comes out of the court expecting an angry mob but instead everyone just turns and walks away from him. At the ranch, Victor meets the group and asks them to let go of their anger towards Adam because if they retaliate only Adam wins but if they act as he doesn’t exist, he loses everything. Meanwhile, Adam remembers Hope and the day he left her to take a job in the city how proud she was of him. Adam fights back the emotion as he realizes how much he has let Hope down. Later, Victor tells everyone that Adam will have to pay for his sins but at his own hand because he will have to live with what he has done forever.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Quinn Walks Out on Carter Leaving Him Devastated

Monday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured a stand-out performance by Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) as after Carter professed his love for Quinn (Rena Sofer) and asked her to run away with him, only she put on the brakes!

Quinn tells him that she loves her husband, Eric (John McCook), and is going back to him and can’t run away with him, although that prospect sounds enticing. She goes on to say that she has built a life for herself with Eric and she is not willing to give it up.

Photo: JPI

Carter is devastated.  He believed what they had was so special that they could get through anything – mind you, the two have been having an affair (OK’s by Eric at this point, because of his ED), and she is a married woman.

Following their heart-to-heart, Quinn walks out on Carter determined to make her marriage work.  Meanwhile, Katie (Heather Tom), who had just told Bill, (Don Diamont) she won’t give their relationship another chance, heads to Carter’s to give him a piece of her mind on his fling with Quinn, and how he could do that to Eric!

Following her tirade, she gets quite the surprise, when Carter admits to Katie that he loves Quinn.  Katie is stopped in her tracks.  We fade to black.

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
