After Victoria proclaims her love for Billy, Victor makes it clear that he is disappointed in her daughter’s choice before leaving. Billy thinks Victoria was joking and is stunned when it becomes clear that she wasn’t. Meanwhile, Nick tells Nikki that Phyllis left him. Phyllis shows up at her penthouse and tells Sharon that she left Nick and that she wants her place back. Later, Sharon is shocked by Phyllis’s pronouncement and tells Phyllis that she and Faith will be out by tonight. Sharon isn’t ready to face what Phyllis already knows; that Sharon will go straight to Nick. After the commotion Skye made in the courtroom, Owen tells Heather that she is taking over Adam’s case. Skye introduces Adam to his new attorney, Vance Abrams, just as Adam’s arraignment begins and Vance asks the judge to allow Adam bail so that he can go home. Heather and Chance are stunned when the judge actually allows Adam bail. Later, Skye tells Adam that before she posts his bail she wants him to marry her but before Adam can give her an answer Heather arrives, wanting to talk to Adam, alone. Trying to process Victoria’s statement of love, Billy decides to ask Victoria out on a first date. Meanwhile, Victor is venting his frustration to Nikki about Victoria’s declaration of love to Billy and he says that the Newmans have no business associating with the Abbotts, which Abby overhears and takes to heart. Later, Abby confronts her father about his speech as Victor does the same about Abby’s RS cover. Moments later, a reporter from Celebrity Weekly arrives to interview Abby and asks Victor how he feels about her sex tape, which blind sides Victor. While looking for Phyllis at the club, Nick runs into Sharon. Sharon tells him that Phyllis is at the penthouse and is stung by Nick’s vehemence that he and Phyllis will work out their relationship. Meanwhile, Phyllis thinks back on her life and how she and Nick came together to fall in love. Billy brings Victoria to an arcade for their date and Victoria plays it off as though she isn’t pleased with the venue, at first, until she lets her hair down and the two both start acting like big kids, playing games. Later, Billy watches Victoria as she plays and touched to see just how truly happy she really is. Heather tells Adam just how disgusting he truly is but it doesn’t faze him and when she leaves Heather runs into Skye. Heather assures Skye that Adam is using her too but Skye doesn’t seem to mind or care. Later, Skye tells Adam that she bailed his bail and Adam thinks he is free until Skye brings in a Justice of the Peace and asks him if he can live up to his end of the bargain. Meanwhile, Heather is touched by how protective Chance is as they talk about Adam. Victor nearly hits the roof as Abby tells him about the sex tape and plays it off as though she wasn’t involved in leaking. Abby plays the victim in front of the reporter and drags him out of the club just as Victor gets the call about Adam getting out on bail.

She says goodbye to Nick and closes the door on him and their marriage.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
