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.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Tells The Men To Get Out If They Are There for the Wrong Reasons

So, let’s be real here.  Do you seriously think all of the men vying for Katie’s heart on this season’s The Bachelorette, or going onto a dating-reality show, are all just looking for love without realizing the fame, attention and instagram followers that will accrue due to their appearance on the long-running competition series? With that said, some men profess they are on the show searching for love, while others are on the show are there for “the wrong reasons” – i.e. searching for fame.

Katie Thurston had her fill of the “wrong reasons’ on Monday night’s episode of the series, after contestants Aaron and Cody went at it in a mud-wrestling match that turned dirtier than just rolling around in the muck.  Later, Katie pulls Aaron aside where he he reveals that he knows Cody from San Diego, and know he has a questionable character, especially from his social media postings.  Aaron believes Cody just came on to the show to become famous. When Katie then confronts Cody about this, he is pretty unfazed and matter-of-fact and emotionless.  Next up, she boots Cody from the show.

After Katie hits an emotional bottom, she gathers herself together for the evening’s cocktail chats and smooches, and as she is feeling good again, Karl decides to confuse her and tells her that their may be other men in the house who are there for the “wrong reasons”. That prompts Katie to have her episode ‘drop the mic’ moment where she tells the guys that ,”if they are not here for the right reasons to get the ‘f***” out!”  The men are pissed at Karl for stirring things up with nothing to back up his accusations with and Katie is left (as we fade to black) in a puddle of tears.

BUT, before that there were some other watershed moments within the episode. During her one-on-one ‘wilderness date’ with Greg, Katie opened up to him about the death of her father.  Later, when they sat down for their evening date, Greg revealed his father died, and then it was his turn to be overcome, revealing how difficult it was to leave his mom, who was still grieving to come be a part of The Bachelorette season, and to vie for Katie’s heart. But these two clearly have a very strong connection leading people to wonder if Greg will get the final rose.

Earlier, during the awkward – “prove to Katie how sexy you are in bed, or how you will take care of her in bed” – or something like that, Mike the virgin cried during his testimonials as to how he would get up in front of her and the other men with his presentation when he is a virgin.  Mike decided to go with the honest approach and wrote a poem for Katie about how he would love her while basically admitting he was a virgin, as she sat on the bed on the stage with him. He won the award in the sex competition.  OK? OK!

So, who do you think is the frontrunner for Katie’s heart? Is anyone on this show there to truly fall-in-love and get engaged??? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!
