As the reception gets underway, all the guests offer Jack and “Emily” their congratulations and Billy and Ashley toast the bride and groom just as the doors open and in walks Victor with gift in hand. Victor’s presence at the wedding reception tries to push Jack’s buttons but Neil steps up and asks Victor to leave but before he does Traci asks to speak to him. Later, Traci reminds Victor of the gift she gave him and the fact that he is tarnishing that gift on this endless feud with Jack. At the tack house, Nick and Phyllis discuss dissolution of Victoria and J.T.’s marriage and realize that it had a lot to do with their lack of communication.

At first, Lily is uncomfortable, but Malcolm suggests they just take tests shots to show her just how strong she truly is. Later, Malcolm shoots Lily for the first time in a wig as they discuss Dru’s strength and how Lily shares that quality. As they talk, Lily realizes that she doesn’t need her wig and goes to take it off. Jana tells Noah, over the phone, that she is going to find out what Ryder and Daisy’s connection is to the boy, Max, and his disappearance. Moments later, Jana meets with Ryder and offers to buy him dinner, unaware that Kevin is making plans for a romantic evening. Later, Jana tells Kevin that she had dinner with Ryder and tries to tell him why but he doesn’t want to know. Tucker comes in and asks Kevin to find out who is trying to dig up information on him and his past dealings. Ashley wonders to Neil if it is possible that Adam was the one torturing her all along and plans to confront him when he returns home. Meanwhile, Sharon tries to ignore Phyllis as Phyllis pushes Adam, but Sharon is caught off guard when Phyllis tells her about Dr. Taylor sexually harassing his patients. Later, Sharon refuses to believe that Adam knew anything about who Taylor truly was and starts to think that Phyllis is just trying to get back at her. Ashley comes downstairs, and Adam immediately assumes that she wants to know about Phyllis’s accusations but instead Ashley demands to know if he tried to drive her insane. Tucker approaches Jill and Cane to find about if they know anything about who may be investigating him but Jill denies knowing anything. Cane encourages her to focus on finding a new job but Jill already has that covered.

Ashley pushes Adam for the truth with Neil at her side as Sharon tries to defend him but Ashley refuses to waiver, knowing that Adam has been lying to her for months. Finally, Ashley tells Adam that it is time to move out of the ranch, immediately. Sharon’s faith in Adam starts to break when Phyllis points out that Ashley had no reason to be out to get Adam and even she has turned against him. Cane is caught off guard when Lily tells him how much Malcolm was helping her and that she was crying because she was happy. Later, Malcolm runs into Phyllis at the G.C.A.C. and they see Neil and Ashley together. He asks her how long Neil and Ashley have been dating and Phyllis isn’t sure but supports it considering what she is going through. Malcolm advises Phyllis to stay out of it but Phyllis is skeptical that there is anything Adam can really do to hurt her now. Upstairs, Adam and Sharon move into a suite, and Adam asks Sharon if anything that happened tonight changed the way she feels about him and she assures him that she still believes in him. Daisy realizes that her half of the photo is gone and she and Ryder put the pieces together that Jana has it. Jill brings Billy a new cover story idea on Tucker McCall and promises to dig up dirt on him, since he is so worried about someone looking into his background.

Meanwhile, Victor stops by the ranch to see Adam on the anniversary of Hope’s death and Ashley tells him that Adam and Sharon moved out.

Sharon believes him and as they are casually talking moments later, Adam realizes that today is the anniversary of Hope’s death. Daisy tells Ryder that their mother has a plan on how to handle Jana and the rest of the Fishers. At dinner, Jana and Kevin try to enjoy their evening but when Jana pushes Kevin too far about work things become tense. Later, Kevin surprises Jana with suite for the night but Jana feels like something is off between them and Kevin is determined to make it right. Victor presses Ashley to find out why Adam and Sharon moved out but Ashley is purposefully vague just as Abby arrives home. Abby is not happy to learn that Ashley has decided to give the ranch back to Victor. Later, as Adam is telling Sharon about his life growing up on the farm in Kansas, Victor arrives to see Adam. Alone, Victor tells Adam that he believes Hope would be proud of him. Meanwhile, Neil reminds Abby that home isn’t about a place but really about being with the people you love.

Jack wonders if “Emily’s” sudden change in behavior has anything to do with Patty. Patty works hard to stay in control and say the right things as she listens to Jack admit his guilt over hurting Patty but in the end, she wins him over and they go back to making love. Later, Patty overhears Jack on the phone with Ashley talking about Jabot and pushes Jack to tell her what is going on. Patty puts the pieces together and tells Jack they need to get back to Genoa City tonight. Jack is surprised and grateful when Patty supports him and tells him that he needs to take a stand against Victor. Jana receives a note from Kevin asking him to meet her at the Strand Theatre. Meanwhile, Kevin gets trapped in the elevator at the G.C.A.C. elevator. Later, Jana arrives at the theatre and finds a gift left for her, which she assumes is from Kevin, as Kevin continues to be stuck in the elevator trying not to panic. Jana opens the opens the gift and finds a picture of a birth announcement for twins – Ryder and Daisy. Moments later, in the elevator, the car jolts and plunges into darkness. Neil brings Abby home and Abby asks Ashley if it would be possibly to move into Brad’s house after the house is finished being rebuilt. Ashley likes the idea and agrees, thanking Neil for whatever he said to calm Abby down. Later, Ashley promises Neil that she will tell Victor the truth about Adam when the time is right. As Adam talks to Hope he wonders about the man he has become and tells her how much he truly loves Sharon but he doesn’t know if he can ever make things right. As he breaks down Sharon enters and wraps him in her arms. Adam blurts out the truth about his plan with Victor to Sharon and Sharon assures him that she is going to stand by his side, no matter what. Kevin finally gets out of the elevator and finds that Jana is gone from the club and wonders where she went. Meanwhile, Jana finally learns who Ryder and Daisy’s mother is just as she is attacked.

Kevin tells Michael and Lauren that Jana is missing and that he thinks something happened to her. Kevin tells them about Jana’s suspicions about Daisy and Ryder and they all set out to find out where Jana could be. Later, Kevin and Michael go back over the night and Kevin wonders if the elevator glitch wasn’t a glitch at all but instead, Ryder and Daisy were involved. They realize they need answers about them fast. As Ashley prepares to move into Brad’s, Billy pumps her for information on Tucker to no avail. Meanwhile, Victoria comes to see Victor about his interview on Adam in Restless Style and Victor tells her that he needs to talk her about his reasons for giving the interview in the first place. Later, Sharon stops by the ranch and tries to defend Adam to Ashley but Ashley holds her ground and even reminds Sharon that although she no longer trusts Adam, Sharon is still welcome and Sharon is suddenly overcome with emotion. Phyllis tells Nick that she can’t lay off Adam because he is more dangerous than anyone thought. Phyllis tells Nick everything she has learned about Adam and he realizes that he needs to tell Victor. Later, Victor tells Victoria everything about their plan with Adam just as Nick arrives and fills them in on Adam’s possible involvement in Ashley’s torment and Dr. Taylor. Victoria is furious to have been dragged into this mess against her will. Victoria tells them that she is resigning from Jabot and turning her back on this mess but Victor wants to forge ahead with the deal, even though Nick thinks Adam could turn on them.

When Ashley needs to rush off to help Abby, Sharon offers to stay with Faith and promises not to let Adam anywhere near her. Meanwhile, Adam shows up at Newman Enterprises and reminds Nick and Victor that if they cross him he will return the favor. Later, Phyllis runs into Ashley and tells her that she has proof that Adam knew everything that Dr. Taylor did to Skye and all the other women because she spoke to Skye’s best friend, who was also a victim of Taylor’s. At the ranch, Nick stops by and finds Sharon with Faith, and he tries to make Sharon see that Adam stories just aren’t adding up.

Meanwhile, Kevin confronts Ryder and tells him that if he did anything to hurt her that he will kill him. Later, Kevin starts to panic when there are no leads on Jana. Meanwhile, Ryder and Daisy watch over a trapped unconscious Jana, locked up in a cage. While talking to Billy at the bar, and being pumped for information on Tucker, Victoria lets it slip that she and J.T. are getting a divorce. Billy tells her that he thinks J.T. is a fool for letting her go and Victoria is caught off guard by the compliment. Later, Billy helps Victoria let off some steam and the two laugh, which Victor witnesses and doesn’t like. After Victoria leaves, Victor warns Billy away from Victoria.

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
