Tucker and Victor meet to finalize the terms of the Jabot deal and Tucker fishes for information on Adam and Victor’s fallout. Meanwhile, Ashley presents Adam with the piece of cloth stained in blood and demands the truth from him but Adam continues to pretend that he knows nothing. Adam continues to play dumb until Phyllis hits him with the evidence that Skye was a victim of Taylor’s and he had to have known about his girlfriend’s involvement. Sharon turns on him, wanting to know the truth. Daniel and Amber get to the coffeehouse and find Kevin still frantically searching for Jana, who is still missing. He tells them that he believes that Daisy and Ryder may be involved but they both have alibis. Chloe arrives and Kevin asks her to get Chance to help them find Jana. Later, Chance agrees to help find Jana and Ryder arrives to offer Kevin his help as well. Jack and Patty arrive home and Jack surprises Patty with a portrait of Emily in her wedding gown and Patty panics, trying to hide her jealousy and Jack wonders if she doesn’t like his gift. Patty recovers quickly and reminds Jack how much she loves both him and the portrait. Alone, she tells Emily that Jack belongs to her now. Adam pretends to be tortured by the idea that Skye was molested by Taylor and he knew nothing about it. He sells it so well that Nick and Sharon wonder if he is telling the truth but Phyllis and Ashley aren’t buying it. Adam tries to get Sharon to leave with him but Nick tries to stop Sharon. Adam, however, puts on his best show, and manages to convince Sharon that she can trust her. Later, Ashley, Nick and Phyllis are determined to find solid evidence to bring Adam down and show Sharon who she is truly married to. Chloe finds a tip on the website Kevin set up to find Jana and Kevin, Ryder and Daniel set out to track it down. Later, Amber breaks out the Ouija board but all it spells out is MAMA and Amber starts to think that it is because she has babies on the brain. Meanwhile, Kevin learns that Jana was at the Strand Theatre before her disappearance. Jack confronts Victor and Tucker during their business and accuses Adam of being a mole planted by Victor inside Tucker’s company to help Victor outbid Jack for Jabot. Victor doesn’t cop to any malfeasance but Jack refuses to back down. Later, Jack tells Victor that he is going to a judge with his suspicions in order to stop the Jabot deal from going through. Meanwhile, Patty calls in for an update on Emily and learns that she is still in a coma. Sharon tells Adam that if he doesn’t tell her everything he has done now she will run from him as fast as she can. Adam explains to Sharon that Ashley was already unstable and asks Sharon to believe him. He asks Sharon to leave Genoa City with him and save their marriage in the process. Later, Jack runs into Adam and tries to plant a seed of doubt that Victor is playing Adam. He offers to have Adam come to work with him to get back at Victor once and for all. Chloe learns that Chance is going to file a missing persons report but there is still no evidence that Jana didn’t just take off on her own which nearly sends Kevin over the edge. Meanwhile, still locked up, Jana screams for help.

Lily and Mac meet with Devon and Malcolm to celebrate her last day of chemo, while Cane and Neil have to bail due to work situations with Tucker. Later, Cane meets with Tucker and learns that he plans to sell off all the divisions of Chancellor in one day. Kay and Neil are going over all of Tucker’s past dealings, trying to find something they can use against him, just as Cane arrives with the bad news. Things between J.T. and Victoria go from bad to worse as the tension continues to rise and Victoria realizes how much she missed while she was in Dubai. Later, Nikki encourages Victoria to move into the main house but Victoria refuses to be around Victor at the moment after the stunt he pulled with Adam. However, Victoria and Victor finally talk and Victor makes a vow that Adam will keep his distance from the rest of the family in order to protect them. Jack stops by Sharon’s suite to drop off the keys to Brad’s house, now that it’s livable again, and Jack tries to work Adam again. Meanwhile, Ashley leaves Jack a message telling him that she plans to move into Brad’s with Faith and Abby just as Victor arrives wanting to know exactly what her suspicions are about Adam. Later, Ashley tells Jack that she is moving back into Brad’s just as Sharon and Adam arrive and she drops the bomb on them that they need to make new living arrangements. While looking into Tucker’s past with Cane and Neil, Kay finally finds what she has been looking for in order to bring Tucker down. Nearby, Lily and Malcolm grow closer as they talk about their future as parents. Later, Kay, Cane and Neil realize that Tucker used a painting in order to further his career. Malcolm, Lily, Mac and Devon discuss what it would be like for Devon to look for his biological father and what it meant for Mac to not know her father growing up. Devon brings up the fact that Lily’s children will, in a way, have two mothers but Mac quickly corrects saying that although she feels protective, Lily is their one and only mother. Sharon and Adam immediately assume that this is Ashley’s way of punishing Adam but Ashley explains that this was Abby’s way of feeling closer to Brad and Colleen. Jack tries to interject himself but Adam cuts all ties with him and calls off the partnership, which Ashley becomes curious about. Later, Adam makes a passionate plea to take Sharon away from Genoa City, to get away from all the people that are trying to pull them apart with their lies. Sharon is drawn in as they kiss deeply. Meanwhile, Ashley tells Jack that Adam was responsible for tormenting her last summer and that he needs to stay away from Adam. Sharon agrees to leave Genoa City with Adam. Victoria and Victor manage to reconcile when Victor tells Victoria that her family comes first and he understands her decisions regarding Jabot. Meanwhile, Kay interrupts Tucker’s auction of Chancellor’s holdings in order to make it clear to Tucker that she now has the upper hand. Later, Victoria tries to start a conversation with J.T. and asks him to find a place to live, knowing it may be better for everyone involved but J.T. immediately becomes hostile and the battle lines are drawn. Mac finally feels the babies kick for the first time and Lily is thrilled, and a little wistful. Nearby, a stranger watches Cane with his family. Meanwhile, Tucker is caught when Kay confronts him with her suspicions of the buy off.

Jana, still locked up, continues to believe that Kevin will find her. Meanwhile, Kevin’s entire family works to help a frustrated and scared Kevin look for Jana and reminds him that both Daisy and Ryder have solid alibis for the time Jana went missing. Ryder sees Adam with a stack of relocation books at the bookstore and asks him about it. Adam tells him that he is considering leaving the country and starting his life over. Meanwhile, after Phyllis and Nick fill Victor in on their latest Adam discovery, Victor is furious and calls Adam to the ranch immediately to find out what the truth really is. Tucker realizes that Kay has evidence that he is guilty of international corporate bribery. Kay threatens to unravel everything Tucker has worked his entire life building. Tucker, however, is dumbstruck when Kay tells him that she has no intention of making her knowledge of this public. J.T. and Victoria’s argument escalates when J.T. refuses to walk away from Reed and he starts to point the finger at Victoria, reminding her that she was the one that chose Newman over her own son. Moments later, Kevin calls for J.T.’s help and J.T. uses it as an excuse to leave in the middle of their argument. Meanwhile, Daisy shows Ryder Kevin’s flyers of Jana and tells him that she needs a plan to make sure Kevin won’t ever wonder what happened to Jana again. Later, Ryder brings Jana food and Jana tries to talk to him and convince him to help her for Kevin’s sake. Ryder, however, reminds her that she knows who his mother is now and his mother is never going to let her go. Phyllis and Nick wonder what Adam’s true intentions with Dr. Taylor were and what Victor will do if he gets Adam to admit what he has done. Meanwhile, Victor gives Adam a chance to come clean and tell him the truth about what he did to Ashley but Adam feigns hurt and then goes on the attack telling Victor that if Nick and Phyllis don’t back off that he will be forced to tell everyone about the Jabot deal. Victor, however, doesn’t take the bait and reminds Adam that he will go down with them. Later, Adam goes to Tucker and tells him that he wants to take over the position of V.P. of European Operations. J.T. arrives at the coffeehouse to help Kevin look for Jana as Victoria calls Michael to ask him to help her with her divorce, fearing that J.T.’s talk of an amicable divorce was all just talk. Meanwhile, Ryder tells Daisy that he is worried about Jana because she is having headaches but Daisy is flip about it more concerned about making Jana disappear. Later, Michael tells Victoria that she can’t force J.T. to move out because Sharon leased the house to both of them. Meanwhile, Daisy tries to imitate Jana’s accent in the hopes of convincing Kevin that Jana left him. Kay tells Victor that she could have crushed Tucker today and chose not to because he is her son. Meanwhile, Tucker refuses to let Adam leave and tells him to stop the sale of all Chancellor Companies immediately.

On the day of Delia’s birthday party, Ashley stops by to see Emily and Jack and Patty starts to panic when Ashley asks her about her “surprise” for Jack and Patty knows nothing about it. Meanwhile, Chance and Chloe prepare to celebrate Delia’s birthday and discuss the relationship Chance has with Delia. Chance makes it clear to Chloe that he isn’t trying to take Billy’s place as Delia’s father. Later, Jack, Patty and Ashley arrive at the Chancellor estate for the party and Patty sidles up to Chloe to try and get more information on her surprise for Jack. At Restless Style, Billy, Jill, Malcolm, Cane and Lily are going over Lily’s test shots and everyone seems to love them but away from the group Billy and Jill realize they still need to dig up dirt on Tucker to sell their cover story. Meanwhile, Kay tells Neil that she decided not to use the information she has over Tucker against him and he tells her that she has to if she wants to save Chancellor. As the party gets underway, everyone coos over Delia, and Billy spoils her with gifts. Nearby, Jack finally gets a call from the lawyer he has been waiting for with news about Jabot. Meanwhile, Victor and Tucker get the news that Jack managed to convince a judge to put a stay on their deal until it can be looked at more thoroughly. Later, Chance has to leave to go to work and Jill realizes that Kay has dirt on Tucker and she is dumbstruck when Cane tells her that Kay decided not to use it. Victor and Tucker realize how much they are alike and how many promises they have broken to the people in their lives. Meanwhile, Jill pleads with Kay to use her ammunition to strike at Tucker but Kay tells her to let it go. Later, Victor goes to the hospital to visit “Patty” and asks her if she believes in karma. Alone with Emily, Victor finally opens up about his regret and admits his part in bringing Patty to town and Colleen’s death. Back at the magazine, Billy and Jill work frantically to try and find out what Kay is hiding from them on Tucker.

Patty’s panic rises when Ashley tells her that the surprise has arrived for Jack. Just as Jack is leaving for the courthouse, Kyle runs through the front door and into his father’s arms. Jack is stunned to see his son and Patty tries to control her panic, not knowing this boy who is calling Jack dad. Meanwhile, Victor promises “Patty” that she will get the best care money can buy. Chance comes home after Delia’s party and tells Chloe that Riggs turned up dead and now he will never know what was really going on with him. Meanwhile, Tucker tells Kay that he is putting a hold on the sale of all of Chancellor’s companies and Kay thanks him. At the hospital, Lily prepares for her PET scan to see if the cancer is in remission or if it has spread and wonders where Cane could be. Meanwhile, Cane is detained by an Immigrations officer who tells him that he is in the country illegally.

Cane informs a frantic Lily that I.C.E. wants to deport him. Cane explains that because he used Phillip’s social security number and masqueraded as natural born U.S. citizen that it is a deportable offense regardless of the fact that they are married. Lily refuses to let him get deported, no matter what. Victor goes to see Sharon to find out where Adam is and she defends her husband promising that Adam will do his part in court today, no matter the personal cost to himself. Meanwhile, Phyllis works to get access to Dr. Taylor’s personal effects. Later, Phyllis tells Sharon that she is onto a lead that will prove who Adam truly is and when she does she wants Sharon to come with her. Victoria and Billy compare battle wounds from their respective past year and before he knows what he is doing Billy grabs Victoria and kisses her. Completely caught off guard, Victoria kisses him back before drawing off and slapping him. Michael interrupts them before they have a chance to discuss anything. Later, Victor wonders if there is something going on with Victoria and Billy that he needs to step in on. Meanwhile, Victoria asks Nick if Michael needs to know about Adam’s position as the mole in Tucker’s organization. Paul is alerted when he is talking to “Patty” and she manages to squeeze his hand. Meanwhile, Patty is hit again when Diane Jenkins walks through the door and introduces herself to Emily. Patty manages to compose herself quickly and Diane is impressed by “Emily,” much more so than Phyllis. However, when Diane brings up Patty’s reign of destruction Patty starts to slowly lose it again. Later, just as Diane and Patty are discussing Patty’s past with Jack, Paul calls to tell “Emily” about “Patty’s” break through and asks her to come to the hospital. At the courthouse, everyone arrives and prepares for the hearing, all wondering where Adam is and what he is going to say in court. Inside the court, Jack and Victor present their cases and then the judge asks to hear from Adam but everyone is stunned when it seems that Adam didn’t show up to testify. Meanwhile, Phyllis tries to reach Sharon and make her see that Adam is dangerous and promises that if she doesn’t find anything on Adam that she will drop her investigation. Later, Jack is thrilled when the judge rules for a stay of 30 days in order for Jack to find more evidence that Victor tampered with the bids. At the hospital, Paul tells Patty that his sister has been trying to wake up and Patty promises to take good care of her. Patty tries to get a moment alone with Emily but Paul refuses to leave the room. Later, Patty finally manages to get a few moments alone with Emily just as Emily opens her eyes. Patty panics and grabs a pillow in order smother Emily. Sharon refuses to help Phyllis blast Adam so Phyllis sets out to find the proof on her own. Up in her suite, Sharon calls Adam just as Victor arrives demanding to know where Adam is. Meanwhile, while going through Taylor’s papers, Phyllis finds Skye’s journal that proves Adam knew about Skye’s past with Taylor. Later, Phyllis brings the news to Jack and ends up face to face with Diane. At the Sharon’s suite, Nick brings Skye’s journal and pleads with Sharon to hear him out. Lily promises Cane that she will do everything she can to get him out of lock up and home to her. Meanwhile, Billy and Victoria run into each other but refuse to talk about the kiss that happened earlier in the day.

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!”

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Sally Reveals Her Plan To Nab Wyatt; Katie Lowers The Boom On Bill

BOLD is back!  On Tuesday, July 21st, the CBS Daytime drama, The Bold and the Beautiful aired its first original episodes in months, and should be congratulated not only for being the first soap back in production, but who also, in short order,  got new episodes on the air starting with today.

And, there was plenty of action in the first show back amid the coronavirus pandemic.  So, here’s the key points of what went down.

Photo: JPI

Sally (Courtney Hope) and Dr. Escobar (Monica Ruiz) wind up tying an unconscious Flo (Katrina Bowden) to a radiator after the doc conked her over the head previously, when Flo found out Sally’s been faking her illness.  Meanwhile, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) comes by Sally’s place, and sees how the place is in complete disarray.  A concerned Wyatt phones Sally who lies that she fell, and is with her doctor getting checked out.

When Wyatt tells Sally he wants to be there for her, she takes that to the extreme.  Dr. Escobar goes on how they will be arrested for kidnapping Flo.  Sally, who is becoming more unglued, says under her breath:“The threat of just losing me isn’t enough.”  Just then, Flo wakes up and is in for a rude awakening when she realizes she is kidnapped and tied up.  Flo thinks Sally has lost it.   Sally tries to reason to her that they never meant for this to happen, but she is going after Wyatt.  Flo warns her she won’t get him like this way  … and then Sally says this is the perfect moment for her to get pregnant due to what the app says on her phone, and she will have Wyatt’s children and a family,   Then, angry and vindictive, Sally tells Flo in no uncertain times: “I refuse to lose to you. I’m going to have Wyatt’s baby.”

Elsewhere at Forrester Creations, Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont) get into a discussion about the consequences he must face for kissing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), but he doesn’t know what Katie is about to say.  She says she believes he’s sorry. and she loves him very much, but she doesn’t know if she can forgive him this time.  Bill attempts to reason with Katie, by saying that “Bitch Quinn” (Rena Sofer) weaponized his kiss with Brooke and made them collateral damage.  All he wants is to come home.  However, Katie has other plans and wants them to tell their son, Will, what is going on between them … they’re separated and they may not get back together.  It should be noted that Heather Tom, who just won her record-tying sixth Daytime Emmy, proved again why she is a multi-winner with her performance in these scenes.

And at the beach house, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) talk over the current state of their lives; where he realizes and so does she, that something more has to be in her life than raising a baby and work.  Cue the new doctor in town (Tanner Novlan as “Finn”) later this week!

So, what did you think of B&B’s first new episode back? Comment below..

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.
