Victor and Adam have a very public confrontation and Victor seemingly disowns his youngest son. Adam leaves with Tucker, who is completely unsympathetic to Adam about his exchange with Victor. Abby and Noah are disgusted by Victor’s behavior and as Ashley is taking them out she sees something from Victor’s pocket and has an unsettling flashback to the night she fell down the stairs. As Phyllis is leaving she runs into Malcolm and is thrilled to see her old friend. As Chloe and Emily continue to put the finishing touches on the wedding, they discuss Emily’s “surprise” for Jack and that it will have him thinking about family very soon. Later, Emily and Jack are testing dishes for their wedding when Cane interrupts and asks for Emily’s help with Lily. Lily and Cane meet with Devon and Neil to have them listen to the babies’ heartbeats and tell them the news about Harry. Lily decides to go the chapel to say a prayer and Cane and Neil become concerned for her. Later, Lily prays to God for Harry and that she will one day be here to meet her children and be a mother to them. Seeing how distressed Noah is, Sharon and Nick agree to let him go to Paris for a semester. After Noah is gone, Sharon asks Nick what is truly going on with Adam and Victor and Nick covers, telling her that she will have to ask them. Meanwhile, at Tucker’s apartment, as Tucker and Adam discuss what to do about the Jabot auction, Tucker wants to know why Victor feels that Adam is a habitual liar. Later, Victor shows up at the ranch to talk to Ashley and instead gets ambushed by Sharon and Ashley’s questions. Victor, however, refuses to tell them anything.

Lily opens up to Emily about her fears of dying and Emily encourages not to forget to live. Emily reminds her that she has an amazing support system, a family that loves her unconditionally and a friend who is willing to bear children for her. Later, Lily gets a letter from Harry and realizes that he must have written it just before he died. Harry’s words inspire Lily to continue living everyday that she has left, no matter how long that is. As Adam is leaving Tucker’s he comes face to face with Nick. They throw a few jabs at one another as Adam sees himself out. Nick offers to buy Jabot from Tucker but instead Tucker is more interested in buying Newman Cosmetics from Nick. Meanwhile, Abby helps Ashley unwrap a purple baby blanket from Dina and when Ashley sees it she has another flashback to when she thought she hit Sabrina. She asks Abby to help her find a strip of purple cloth and tells Abby that it is very important. Later, Nick turns Tucker’s offer down and Tucker tells him that if he wants Jabot to put in a sealed bid just like the Abbotts. Meanwhile, Adam and Victor meet and plot to continue deceiving Tucker in order to get back Kay’s company.

As Phyllis and Nick are discussing Phyllis’s determination to find out what Adam is hiding, Abby arrives in a panic and tells them that Ashley is freaking out. Meanwhile, Ashley rips apart the house looking for the purple piece of cloth when Sharon arrives. Ashley asks Sharon to take Faith for a little while so that Ashley can search and Sharon happily agrees. Later, Sharon arrives with Faith and tells Adam about Ashley’s meltdown and he immediately panics and says he needs to get home to help her. Daisy brings Lauren home from the store after she has another headache. Lauren sees the binder out and Michael tells her that he called Eden about it and Eden swears she is being set up by Daisy. Meanwhile, Jana tells Kevin that she saw Ryder digging through garbage and Kevin immediately goes to find his brother. Later, just as Sharon tells Noah that he can go to Paris, he gets a call from Eden telling him about Michael’s accusations. Meanwhile, when Lauren continues to believe that Eden is behind her attacks, Michael demands she go the doctor. Kevin finds Ryder on the street asking for change and is stricken but refuses to let him back into his life.

Abby tells Phyllis and Nick what is going on with Ashley and how it reminded her of what happened with Ashley last summer and Adam’s involvement. Phyllis wonders if Adam had anything to do with what happened to Ashley and that’s why Ashley is so determined to find the purple cloth. Meanwhile, Adam arrives at the house, and Ashley demands to know how he could make her believe she had committed murder on top of everything else she was going through. Adam tries to convince her that that’s not what happened. Later, as Adam and Ashley are arguing Phyllis arrives in time to hear Ashley ask Adam why he is trying to drive her crazy. Noah tells Eden that he will go Michael and Lauren’s and try to find out what he can. After he hangs up he admits to Sharon that someone is trying to frame Eden for something that she didn’t do. Later, Nick brings Abby down to the bookstore to meet Noah and he sees Sharon with Faith. The two bond as they watch the baby and Nick tells Sharon that he asked Phyllis to back off her and Adam. Adam is not happy to see Phyllis and when Neil arrives to check in on Ashley, Ashley asks him to leave. Adam can barely cover his panic. Meanwhile, Abby and Noah say goodbye to Sharon and Nick. Abby surprises Nick with a hug, thanking him. Sharon and Nick continue to watch Faith and notice how much like Noah she is. Nick asks Sharon if she is truly happy with Adam. Later, Adam finds Abby and Noah at the G.C.A.C and tries to get Abby to go home to her mom but she refuses. Adam vents his frustrations just as he comes face to face again with Phyllis. Ryder calls Daisy and tells her that he needs to see her. Meanwhile, Michael wonders if Lauren’s headaches have something to do with PTSD and insists that she start taking better care of herself. Later, Kevin rents a room for Ryder and pays the rent three months in advance. At the doctor’s office, he tells Michael and Lauren that there is nothing physically wrong with Lauren and that it may just be stress causing her headaches. Michael gets a call from the pet shop owner who sold the rat and tells Michael that he sold it to a teenage girl with long dark hair. Daisy meets Ryder and tells him to stop whining since she is the one who keeps having to run around in dark wigs to set Eden up. Daisy is stunned when she turns and comes face to face with Jana, who wants to know what is going on between Daisy and Ryder. Sharon assures Nick that she is happy with Adam, living at the ranch and being around Faith everyday. Meanwhile, Ashley tells Neil about everything that happened with Adam when he tried to convince her that she hit Sabrina and then Nikki with her car and gave her the purple cloth as evidence. Ashley asks Neil if she seems unstable now. Neil promises Ashley that he believes her and that they are going to find out what is really going on.

As Phyllis is questioning Adam about his relationship with Dr. Taylor, he calls Sharon to check in and is immediately sent into a panic when Sharon tells him that she is with Nick and Faith. Meanwhile, Neil reminds Ashley that lying is a part of Adam’s nature. In order to throw suspicion off himself, Adam tells Phyllis that Nick and Sharon are together. However, Phyllis doesn’t let Adam distract her and Adam realizes the walls are closing in on him. Phyllis continues to prod Adam until he finally has enough and leaves. Once gone, Phyllis calls Harvard and sets up a time to look through their records. Michael tells Lauren about the description the pet store-owner gave him and Lauren realizes that it had to be Eden who bought the rat. Meanwhile, Daisy tells Jana that she was talking to Ryder in order to help out Abby but Jana remains suspicious. As Noah is searching Daisy’s room, he finds the half of ripped photograph and on the bag is written, “Daisy and Max.” Later, Gloria approaches Jack about partnering with her to buy Jabot. Jana arrives and tells Kevin what she saw between Daisy and Ryder and is certain there is more going on than meets the eye. Victor and Nick meet and discuss the final stages of their plan to take down Tucker McCall thanks to Nick. Meanwhile, Sharon runs into Rafe at the bookstore and he warns her to keep her guard up around Adam. Later, Phyllis meets with Rafe and asks him about Adam’s relationship with Dr. Taylor. Rafe tells her that there was something strange going on between them and he was sure that they didn’t like each other.

Michael is surprised when Lauren tells him that he is right about Daisy and that it is time she stop taking in strays. Meanwhile, Noah overhears Kevin and Jana talking about Daisy and as Jana is leaving he intercepts her and asks her to talk to him about Daisy. Later, Michael and Lauren decide it is time that Daisy find a new place to live. Later, Noah shows Jana the torn photo he found and Jana realizes what it is. Jana tells Noah that this photo proves that Ryder and Daisy have known each other since they were kids. Neil meets with Phyllis and tells her what happened between Ashley and Adam months ago when Adam tried to make Ashley believe she hit Sabrina with her car. Phyllis and Neil decide to team up to figure out what Adam is really up to. Meanwhile, Nick tells Victor that it may be better for everyone if Adam never knows that Nick was the mastermind behind their plan. Nick voices his concern to Victor about what keeping more secrets from Phyllis will do to his marriage, and Victor assures him that Phyllis will understand. Later, Neil and Phyllis suspect that something must have happened between Adam and Ashley and Dr. Taylor was in on it.

Adam and Sharon arrive home and Ashley confronts Adam about his lies. Adam tells Ashley that she is merely confusing two different days but Ashley isn’t sure that she believes him as Neil arrives. Ashley tells Adam and Sharon that she thinks it may be best if they start looking for another place to live. Meanwhile, Phyllis and Nick continue to keep secrets from one another. Later, Adam and Sharon decide to go out to give Ashley some space and once they are gone, Ashley tells Neil that she remembers everything perfectly and she knows that Adam is lying. After making a deal with Jack to buy back Jabot, Gloria reels Kevin into another scheme with her. Meanwhile, Jack and Victor both prepare to make their moves on Jabot.

Jack and Emily enjoy themselves as Malcolm takes their engagement photo. Meanwhile, Patty continues to hide her medication, believing that Emily was trying to drug her in order to seduce Jack away from her. Later, Chloe suggests that Emily do her bridal portrait now because the day of the wedding can get a little hectic. At the hospital, Patty works hard to keep herself in control as she visits with Paul. Gloria tells Jeff that Jabot is up for sale and that she negotiated a deal with Jack to make them partners. Jeff, fed up with her scheming behind his back, reminds her that she can’t make this deal without him. Jeff purposefully gets Gloria riled up and then assures her that he is, but won’t trust that Jack is until he gets it in writing. Kay overhears Jill and Tucker making dinner plans and it sends Jill and Kay into another escalated argument. Kay and Jill are so busy taking swings at one another they don’t notice that Chance has heard their entire argument. Jill leaves and Chance tells Kay that he doesn’t understand Jill’s actions because she is alienating herself from Kay and everyone who loves her. Later, Jill and Tucker measure their relationship, each cut off by the idea of being exploited by the other. Neil and Ashley discuss what losing Jabot would do to the Abbotts and what kind of man Tucker McCall must be to not care about the collateral damage of his war against Kay. Meanwhile, Chloe and Chance run into Jill while she is having dinner with Tucker and Chance voices his disapproval of Jill’s relationship with Tucker and her choice to turn her back on Kay. Later, Chloe distracts Chance from Jill by offering to spend a quiet night at home together. Nearby, Jill decides to go home alone tonight which catches Tucker off guard.

As hard as she tries, Patty finally cracks in front of Paul and he is devastated to see how much his sister is deteriorating. Meanwhile, Jeff and Gloria ask Jack for assurance that they will have a place at Jabot once the sale goes through but Jack can’t make them any promises. Once gone, Emily wonders what Jack has gotten himself into. Emily reminds Jack that if he gets in bed with Gloria without informing Ashley he may need to prepare himself for the backlash. Later, Ashley finally meets Tucker and makes it clear to him that she isn’t impressed by his charm or business savvy. Tucker, however, tells her that he hopes tomorrow he is giving her back control of Jabot. Jill comes crashing into Kay’s room and wakes up to tell her that there is someone in house. Jill grabs Kay’s cell and dials 911. Meanwhile, Chance and Chloe arrive home to hear the same noises in the house and Chance immediately forces Chloe to the ground to protect her. Chance realizes that it was just a car backfiring and admits to Chloe that he got a call the other day from someone saying that he was in danger and now he doesn’t know who he can trust. Later, fearing for Kay, Jill accidentally calls her “mother,” and the two have a moment of closeness as they hear footsteps outside their door. Chance and Chloe come back into the house and see Kay and Jill with an officer. Their truce doesn’t last long when they realize someone broke in and Jill believes that Kay is blaming her. Chloe tells Chance that he needs to get someone to help him figure out what is going on before someone actually gets hurt. Jack calls Tucker to let him know that he will be winning the bid for Jabot tomorrow just as Emily comes downstairs in her wedding gown. Meanwhile, Patty breaks down, furious at Emily, and starts screaming about how much she hates her.

Jack reads Emily their wedding announcement in the paper and prepares to celebrate just as Paul arrives; concerned about the same announcement and that Patty may see it. Emily assures him that there is no chance Patty will have any chance of seeing it. Meanwhile, an orderly at the hospital gives Patty the paper and Patty’s heart falls when she reads that Emily and Jack will be getting married at the same church that she and Jack were wed. Later, Jack gives Emily a new bikini and tells her that they are going somewhere tropical for their honeymoon. Emily decides to get a room before the wedding, not wanting Jack to see her on the ceremony. At the hospital, Patty really begins to lose control as she destroys her room. An orderly sees her and calls Paul to let him know what is going on. Chloe warns Billy that someone broke in the Chancellor estate last night. Meanwhile, Cane assures Kay that he will continue to be her eyes and ears at Chancellor as long as Tucker is in charge. Jill goes to see Tucker to tell him about the events of last night, clearly still shaken, and is stunned when Tucker coldly tells her that they should stop seeing each other. Later, Jill tries to apologize to Kay but Kay sees right through and realizes that Tucker dumped her.

Adam meets with Victor and Victor gives him copies of the keys he had made of Tucker’s office when he was there after Adam’s public fight with Victor. Victor reminds Adam to get Tucker out of his office and to make sure to do his part. Later, Tucker meets with Adam and Cane and shows him the bids that came in for Jabot and admits that he was surprised not to get one from Victor. Nick sees Tucker arrive for his meeting at the G.C.A.C. with the mayor and he sets his plan with Adam in motion. Jack asks Billy to be his best man and Billy is completely shocked and touched. Meanwhile, Paul arrives at the hospital and Patty tells him that she needs to get out of the hospital now. Later, Billy and Jack are celebrating their new beginning when Tucker approaches them and asks if they are celebrating the sale of Jabot a bit prematurely. Billy is blindsided by this news but holds his tongue in front of Tucker and Tucker informs Jack that Victor has yet to offer a bid for Jabot.

Cane goes to Kay to warn her that Tucker is moving on and preparing to sell off the first portion of Chancellor as soon as the sale of Jabot is final. Meanwhile, Adam breaks into Tucker’s safe and opens all the sealed bids, photographing each one for Victor. Later, Adam continues to send Victor all the sealed bids as Nick signals to them that Tucker is on his way back to the office. Meanwhile, as Kay and Cane go over the divisions of Chancellor, Jill steps in and begs Kay and Cane to let her help but neither Cane nor Kay are willing to trust Jill any longer. Emily and Chloe discuss how good it was to see Jack and Billy put their differences aside and come together and now how perfect the wedding is going to be because of it. Meanwhile, Billy confronts Jack about keeping him out of the bidding war for Jabot and Jack shocked by the intensity of Billy’s anger and hurt. Jack tries to justify his actions but Billy tells Jack that he is merely treating him like a child, as always and Jack needs to find himself another best man. At Newman, Victor shows Nick what he plans to bid for Jabot and Nick is taken aback. Later, Paul is dumbfounded when Patty greets him as Dr. Emily Peterson. Victor calls Tucker to let him know that his offer for Jabot is on its way and it arrives moments before the deal as Adam wonders if Tucker suspects him of anything underhanded.

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.

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

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.

THE BACHELOR: A Telenovela & Four Contestants Sent Packing

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.
