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.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Share your thoughts and theories on the return of Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan on DAYS; Did you think she was behind the bomb? Let us know  via the comment section below.
