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’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

Courtesy/ABC

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke is “Slap” Happy … And Don’t We Love It?

Several characters are pushing the buttons of Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) these days on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and in return for their nasty remarks and machinations they have pulled, they have been on the receiving end of a wallop when Brooke’s hand meets their face!

First, there was Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), who was on the receiving end of bitch-slap from Brooke.  Now on Friday’s episode, it was another showdown – Shauna (Denise Richards) vs. Brooke.

Now that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is looking to move in with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for awhile to give space for him and Brooke to hopefully repair their strained relationship, Brooke shows up at Shauna’s.  Then, the gloves come off, and Brooke wants to know what happened the night Shauna spent with a drunken Ridge.  Shauna tells Brooke that she just made sure that her hubby was alright.  Brooke questions Shauna about not calling her to pick up Ridge. Shauna reminds Brooke that she told her off shortly before that night.

Then, Brooke channels her late mother-in-law, Stephanie Forrester and calls Shauna, “A slut from the desert.”   Shauna bites back saying that she is not the only slut, after all, Brooke slept with all the Forrester men and that Deacon, Hope’s father, was actually her son-in-law!

That was enough for Brooke to slap Shauna, and she really hit her target … so much so … that during the scene, Denise Richards’ earring came off!  During the slap, Brooke warns Shauna to stay away from Ridge with the following words : “He knows you’re trash. Do you understand me?”

Seems to us that Thomas and Shauna might be the next duo to conspire to destroy Ridge and Brooke from ever reconciling.

So, are you loving that Brooke is laying the smackdown on all those who wronged her and her family?  Do you think Thomas and Shauna might end up in an unholy alliance? Comment below.   But first, watch this soapalicious scene featuring Katherine Kelly Lang and Denise Richards.
