Michael meets with Victor, Adam, Jack and Nick to tell them that he hasn’t found a single thing yet to void Tucker’s take over of Chancellor. Victor is determined to find Tucker’s weakness. Tucker gives Jill the DNA results and Jill learns that Tucker truly is Kay’s son. Wrecked, Jill becomes determined to make Kay understand what happened between her and Tucker. Meanwhile, Kay comes slamming back into the house and announces to Brock and Nikki that Jill is sleeping with Tucker. Later, Kay starts to believe that Jill was working with Tucker and that Kay never truly meant anything to Jill. Victor asks Nick and Adam for their opinions on how to handle Tucker McCall and Nick isn’t thrilled when Victor decides to head Adam’s advice. Alone, Nick tells Phyllis that he needs to start beating Adam at his own game. Later, Victor meets with Adam and asks him if he can finally put Newman first and earn Victor’s trust once and for all. Brock takes his turn to confront Tucker and finally hits the nail on the head when he tells Tucker the real reason he came to Genoa City was to find Kay., Jill arrives home and demands to talk to Kay but Nikki blocks her way refusing to let her see Kay. However, Kay tells Nikki to let her in. Jill tries to explain how she came to be involved with Tucker and the mistake it turned out to be but Kay realizes that this is just who she is and nothing Kay gives her, including her love, would ever be enough. Later, Cane arrives in time to hear Kay telling Jill to get out of the house. Away from Kay, Cane realizes that Jill is involved with Tucker in more than just a business sense. Meanwhile, Brock brings Tucker to see Kay. Later, Jill makes it clear that she intends to work with Tucker now that he controls Chancellor and Cane can’t believe what he is hearing. Meanwhile, Kay refuses to reach out to Tucker and as he leaves she finally breaks down from years of guilt. Victor brings Nick and Adam together and asks them to call a truce but Adam blows up and tells Nick and Victor exactly what he thinks of them and exactly how he feels about Sharon. Victor makes it clear to Adam that he will never earn his trust. Adam quits Newman. Adam brings Victor his letter of resignation and Victor tells him he is making a mistake. Meanwhile, Adam goes to Tucker and asks him for a job.  Noah gets an email from Eden about her time in Paris and she mentions that her aunt wasn’t the one who contacted her. Noah starts to ponder that and wonders who would want to send her away. Meanwhile, Daisy milks Lauren’s sympathies as she tells her how much she hates living in the dorms and her dreaded roommate. Lauren offers to let Daisy stay in Eden’s room while in Eden is in Paris and Daisy is eternally “grateful.” Later, Lauren’s headache continues to get worse and her mood swings heighten. Daisy notices that Lauren is about to have a drink of whiskey and points it out to her, which surprises Lauren, who wonders what is going on with her. Noah asks Sharon to let him go to Paris to be with Eden because he needs a break from all the family drama. Meanwhile, Adam gives Tucker some confidential files from Newman as a way of showing where his loyalties lay. Tucker is impressed and offers him a job. Later, Victor is not happy when Tucker informs him that he knows about Castle Properties, an acquisition Newman was interested in acquiring and that he also hired Adam. Meanwhile, Adam tells Sharon that he got a job with Tucker and Sharon is not thrilled. Later, Victor goes to Billy and offers to give him the story of his career. As Tucker is having a drink, he looks at the drive Adam gave him and says he doesn’t trust the Newman’s for a second. Chance overhears the end of Chloe and Billy’s conversation and realizes that Chloe is going back to work at Restless Style, an idea he doesn’t agree with.  Noah runs into Daisy at the coffeehouse and learns that Daisy is now living in Eden’s old room, which is unsettling to him. While going through Eden’s desk, Lauren finds a binder of Eden’s with clippings of Lauren’s life and incidents with Sheila and a receipt from a pet store and Lauren starts to think that Eden bought the rat. Adam tells Sharon that he is through trying to earn Victor’s respect but Sharon isn’t completely convinced. Meanwhile, Victor tells Billy that he can have a candid interview with him as long as the interview is all about Adam. Cane is furious when Kay tells him that Jill is sleeping with Tucker and she lied to Cane about it. Later, Victor, Jack and Kay all meet to start planning their take down of Tucker but Kay raises the question of just how long Jack and Victor’s truce can truly last.

Michael is caught off guard when Daisy comes out of Eden’s room in her pajamas. Later, Michael and Lauren get into an argument over Lauren asking Daisy to stay with them without talking to Michael first. Lauren shows Michael the scrapbook she found in Eden’s room and tells him that she believes Eden was behind the rat incident but Michael isn’t so sure. At the coffeehouse, Jana encourages Kevin to focus on what is happening at Chancellor Industries and to put Ryder out of his mind. Adam stops by Newman to drop off a gift to his assistant and Victor makes it clear to him that he’d better be careful what he does next. Meanwhile, Sharon offers to take care of Faith for the day so that Ashley and Jack can work at Jabot. Later, Sharon sits and talks to Faith, blissfully unaware that she is bonding with her own daughter. As Adam tells Ashley about his fight with Victor and decision to quit Newman and subsequent job with Tucker, Sharon arrives home and both she and Ashley are stunned when Adam demands to know what Sharon was doing with Faith. After learning that Adam took a job with Tucker, Ashley starts to wonder how much she can trust Adam after all. Lauren finds a sleeping bag in the backroom at Fenmore’s and Daisy lies saying it is hers. She tells Lauren a sob story about school and Lauren refuses to turn her back on Daisy, regardless of what Michael says. Meanwhile, Jana goes to ask a homeless man to leave the coffeehouse and is stopped short when she realizes that it is Ryder. Adam suggests that he and Sharon move off the ranch but Sharon won’t hear of it. Sharon wonders why Adam is so adamant about getting her off of the ranch. Everyone is shocked when Tucker calls a meeting of all the department heads to tell them that they are all fired. Tucker immediately assures him that he is kidding but that he intends to sell Jabot. Ashley and Victor agree that Abby needs them to show her a united front. Meanwhile, at the bookstore, Abby spikes her coffee as she runs into Ryder and offers him a drink and nearly does a spit-take.

Chloe tells Jack and Emily that there is an emergency at the church where they planned their wedding and they need to move it to Sacred Heart, where Jack married Patty. Later, while Chloe and Emily are dealing with the wedding crisis, Jack confronts Jill about her involvement with Tucker. The two exchange some pretty harsh words and Jill doesn’t reveal to Jack Tucker’s intention to sell Jabot. Meanwhile, Cane can’t help reminding Tucker just how lucky he is that Kay is his mother but Tucker’s only concern is business. Kay matter-of-factly asks Tucker what he plans for Chancellor Industries and he tells her that he is going to sell all of it off, piece by piece. Tucker states that it is purely business and Kay calls him out on his lie. Katherine finally admits to Tucker why she gave him up all those years ago and strikes a chord with him but he refuses to acknowledge it and continues to state that breaking up Chancellor is purely a business decision. Kay, however, knows better and hits the nail on the head when she calls Tucker out on his “tantrum.” Kay finds Jack and tells him that Tucker plans to sell Jabot and that needs to make Tucker an offer, quickly. Meanwhile, as Ashley and Victor are discussing Abby, Jack calls Ashley to tell her that Jabot is in play again. Ashley moves off to talk to Jack and Victor hears her over the baby monitor and realizes that Tucker plans to sell Jabot. Later, Victor calls Jill and tries to persuade her to convince Tucker not to sell to Jack. Jill returns to her meeting with Tucker and Cane and tries to convince Tucker not to sell Jabot but instead to keep it as a part of McCall Unlimited. Although intrigued, Tucker turns her down. Ryder tries to take Abby’s alcohol from her as Noah approaches and misreads the situation. Ryder lets Noah take over and Abby finally lets down her guard with him. As Noah tries to sober Abby up, he calls Victor to tell him that he found Abby is bringing her home soon. Later, Ashley and Victor try to talk to Abby, who is extremely emotional.

Sharon brings home a copy of the newest issue of Restless Style to show Adam and Ashley Victor’s interview on Adam. Phyllis, meanwhile, reads the article to Nick and is surprised by how far Victor went to smear Adam’s name. Victor arrives and both Nick and Phyllis wonder if Billy misquoted him but Victor tells them that he stands by every word. Later, Noah and Abby read Victor’s article and start to realize the type of man Victor is and the family they are a part of and truly wish they could both get away. Meanwhile, Adam reads the portion of the article about his mother and Adam is truly gut-punched. Jack confronts Billy about the new issue of the magazine and demands to know what is going on. Billy tells Jack that Victor came to him as he remembers the interview. Jack wonders what is going on, because something about Victor’s motives doesn’t sit right with him. Mac tells J.T. that she has another ultrasound today as Cane and Lily arrive and Lily can barely contain her excitement. At the doctors, Lily, Cane and Mac are all affected when they hear the babies’ heartbeats for the first time. Meanwhile, J.T. runs into Nick at the coffeehouse and asks about Victoria. Nick tells him that things in Dubai are a mess right now and that she will be home as soon as she can. Victor is hit when he overhears Noah talking to Nick about going to France for a semester and wishing he could take Abby with him. Meanwhile, Abby asks Ashley about Victor’s article and Ashley is at a loss as to how to explain Victor’s intentions. Later, Phyllis is furious when she learns that Victor is trying to force Ashley off the ranch and tells Ashley that she will stay on the ranch only if Ashley does. At the ranch, Noah asks Victor how he truly feels about Adam, Victor assures him that although there are elements at play here that Noah can’t understand, Victor does love his family. Sharon continues to support Adam in his pain and Adam blurts out that he doesn’t deserve her. Meanwhile, as Jack, Ashley and Phyllis are having lunch, Nick and Victor arrive at the G.C.A.C. Billy joins his siblings and shocks Ashley and Phyllis when he tells them that Victor brought the Adam interview to him. Later, Ashley confronts Victor at the G.C.A.C. as Abby and Noah arrive to see it. Victor tells her that he isn’t going to fight her for the ranch, leaving her speechless. Moments later, Sharon and Adam arrive and Adam immediately attacks his father in public, telling him that he went too far. Lily comes crashing down off her cloud of bliss when she learns that her friend from chemo, Harry, passed away. Meanwhile, J.T. and Mac bond as they play with Reed and J.T. admits how bad things are between him and Victoria. Later, J.T. and Mac share a moment when Mac admits to her that she wishes she was the one in love and about to have a family with the man she loves. Meanwhile, Cane tries to get Lily to talk about Harry but Lily just wants to focus on the babies and the future.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Nick Reflects on His Love Story with Sharon, Being Victor and Nikki’s Son, in Joshua Morrow’s 30-Year Milestone Episode

On Friday’s June 21st episode of The Young and the Restless, the top-rated soap delivered Joshua Morrow’s 30th anniversary episode as Nick Newman.

The show utilized plenty of clips from the past (as had been promoted) as a look back from the teenage Nick who grew into the man he is today. At the epicenter of the storytelling vehicle, the show decided to tell most of it through the ups and downs of Nick’s love story with Sharon (Sharon Case).

In the present, the two are together getting ready to welcome home their daughter, Faith (Reylynn Caster), who has been abroad. When she returns, she breaks down in tears. She informs her parents that Moses broke-up with her. Faith says she plans on never falling in love again and is impressed that her parents still get along after splitting up “a zillion times.”

Nick chimes in it wasn’t all bad, there were some good times too. Cue the clips and we go to a young Sharon and Nick about to go skinny-dipping on a tropical island.  All of sudden, Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) arrive and then sit down and join the trip down memory lane, wanting to hear all about Sharon and Nick’s past.

From there, we get moments from the Matt Clark (Eddie Cibrian) story and murder, Sharon sleeping with Diego, and Nick sleeping with Grace and then Sharon asking for a divorce, how Cassie came into their lives, and how Nick accepted her as his own daughter.

In two pivotal moments, Nick reflects back at Cassie’s death and how Victoria (Amelia Heinle) came to try to comfort him, but he could not cope with the loss and turned to Phyllis (Michelle Stafford). Later, there is the confrontation scene where Sharon tells Nick she knows he has been having an affair with her arch enemy.

Eventually, Sharon tells Faith, Tessa and Mariah, how before Cassie died, she had the premonition that she and Nick would have another little girl, and that turned out to be Faith. Sharon and Nick recall their ‘almost wedding, where she slapped him at the altar. Even through all of this, they explain to the young woman that they still share a lot of love between them.

At the end of the episode, Nick comes by to see his parents, Victor and Nikki. At first, he comes upon a photo of his sister, Victoria. Nick remembers seeing her again and welcoming her back to Genoa City (and when Amelia Heinle took over the role), and when Nick and Victoria shared a classic sibling moment before her wedding to Billy.

Next, Nick’s parents, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor (Eric Braeden) walk-in. They sit down and Nick says there is something he needs to say to them. It is then where it felt to us, that Joshua was speaking to Melody and Eric, just as Nick wouspeak to Nikki and Victor.

With tears in his eyes, Nick says that he wants them both to know how much he loves them and how indebted he is for the life they’ve given him. Nikki asks where is all this coming from? Nick reveals that he and Sharon told Faith the good and bad of their relationship and it reminded him of some of the mistakes he’s made.

Reflective, Nick says he hopes he has become wiser in the process. In the touching final moments, Nick tells his parents that he couldn’t have asked for better role models. Victor says they couldn’t have asked for a better son as Nikki holds Nick’s hand tightly. The camera pans up to a few photos of Nick through the years that are with his parents.

What did you think of the special episode in honor of Joshua Morrow for his 30 years as Nick Newman? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

WWE Clash at the Castle: CM Punk Costs Drew McIntryre Title Victory in His Home Country

On Saturday, the WWE visited Glasgow, Scotland for the first time in company history for the PLE on Peacock, Clash at the Castle. Five matches took place inside OVO Hydro Arena, and each one had a title on the line.

There were four wrestlers on the card from Scotland, making this even more dramatic, and the crowd in attendance was electric throughout singing, chanting, booing and cheering for their favorites.

DREW MCINTRYE VS. DAMIAN PRIEST for the WWE Championship

The man of the hour in Glasgow was supposed to be Drew McIntyre. This was to be the Scottish warrior’s opportunity to win the WWE Championship belt from Damian Priest. Things looked like a McIntrye win was on the way, but when the referee accidentally got knocked out and Drew hit a Claymore on Priest, he clearly won the match with over a three-count, only with no referee there, it could not be made official.

All of a sudden a ref was seen running to ringside and when he slid in the ring to do the official count, he stopped at two! Drew looked up and the camera revealed it was McIntyre’s arch enemy, CM Punk. Next, Drew started to attack Punk, but the “Voice of the Voiceless” gave him a low blow, costing him the match as Priest went on the offense while the original knocked out referee got back the ring just in time for Priest to pin McIntyre with a three-count.

It should be noted there was a major botched move and scary moment within the match.  riest tried to jump off the ring but he got his foot caught in the ropes and could not easily be extricated. After minutes, McIntyre was able to flip him up and over to get him out of the ropes. It was clear throughout the match that Priest was injured as he hobbled around for most of it.

CODY RHODES VS. AJ STYLES “I Quit” match for the Universal WWE Heavyweight Championship

Has there ever been a babyface as over as Cody Rhodes? We don’t think so. His popularity continues to soar and on this night in Glascow, Scotland, there was nothing but chants of “Cody! Cody Rhodes!”

In the rematch between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles for the Universal title, it was an “I quit” match, where the only way you can lose is by saying the word “I quit!” when the referee puts a mic in front of your face, so everyone can hear the words.  That means, it would be an often brutal match.

Photo: WWE

One of the key moments occurred when Mamma Rhodes slapped AJ at ringside, which allowed Cody to recover and throw a chair at Styles who then went backward over the top rope and landed on a table and crashed through it (it was the table strategically placed there earlier in the night that most forgot about during the match).

At that point, Rhodes landed three Cross Rhodes and handcuffed Styles to the ropes as he relentlessly hit him with the chair. Styles didn’t quit yet but when Rhodes brought the steel steps into the ring, Styles all of a sudden uttered, “I Quit.” Cody retains the title. For good measure, and to show he can be a badass too, we guess. Rhodes threw the steps at Style for a punctuation point ending their feud for now.

As Rhodes walked back from the ring, he was accosted by the Bloodline – Solo Sikoa, Tanga Loa and Tama Tonga. However, Kevin Owens and Randy Orton came to “The American Nightmare’s” defense. It was not lost on the WWE Universe, that “The Viper” looked like he may take aim at Cody’s title with some serious looks captured on social media. Could SummerSlam in August feature Randy vs Cody for the title? Stay tuned.

Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill vs. Zoey Stark and Shayna Baszler vs. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn for the Women’s Tag Team titles.

The champs, Belair and Cargill have looked unstoppable and unbeatable with their sheer strength and ability to overpower their opponents. However, on this night, the crowd was firmly behind Scotland’s Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn. In a three-way for the title, the belts can change hands even if the current champions are not involved in the pin. That was the case here. In a shocker, as Belair and Cargill looked like they were about to win after their power combo on Shayna Baszler, it was Isla Dawn who snuck in and got the pin.

Cargill and Belair are stunned outside the ring, and Alba and Isla celebrated their massive victory in their home country in front of their families who give them bouquets of flowers at ringside. It should be noted, that Alba Frye tragically lost her mother, less than a month ago when she was hit by a driver in Florida. During the post-show press conference, Triple H said Alba and Isla winning the titles had nothing to do with the loss of Frye’s mother; in terms of the timing of the decision to have the duo win the belts. Now, could this be the end for Jade and Bianca? Will Jade turn heel on Bianca?

OTHER MATCH-UPS

Sami Zayn defeated Chad Gable to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship – the main takeaway coming out of the match is the continued disfunction in the Alpha Academy and Otis walking away with an ‘injured’ Maxine, and not helping Gable out when he needed it to win the match. Will Otis now officially turn on Gable?

Bayley defeated Scotland’s Piper Niven to retain the WWE Women’s Championship – Niven gave it her all for the hometown crowed, but Bayley’s in-ring savvy and finisher were too much for her.
