Meanwhile, Billy gives Chloe a hard time about living across the hall from Chance while he still a target but Chloe wonders why Billy can’t just be happy that she finally found a decent guy. Later, Heather and Chance pretend as though they didn’t find the bug as they call Billy and tell him that they have a story for him. Meanwhile, Ronan meets with Meeks and tells him that if they don’t get Chance off the case or demoted their entire case could blow up in their faces.

Kay advises Nikki to follow her heart. Meanwhile, Victor sends Meggie out to Fenmores to get her own clothes as he plans something special for Nikki.

After a moment, Nikki finally tells Victor she will marry him.

Meeks takes Ronan’s side and takes Chance off the case. Chance is furious as Ronan gives Chance a veiled threat, telling him he better keep his mouth shut of things could get worst for him on the home front. Heather doesn’t feel good about Ronan guarding her now but Chance assures her that he will be back once he deals with telling Chloe the truth.

Jack runs into Phyllis at the coffeehouse and wonders how she is coping with leaving Nick. She assures him that she is doing okay with it and focuses on Summer, Daniel on the other hand is another story.

Meanwhile, Tucker and Ashley decide to confront Victor directly about their suspicions that he is bribing a Japanese official in order to maintain his hold on Asian cosmetics market, knowing that they have no proof and it could backfire. Victor doesn’t even flinch at their accusation and warns Ashley about getting in Tucker’s way when he wants something and what could happen to her if she doesn’t play by his rules.  As their meeting gets underway and Neil is making his presentation, Sofia immediately rubs Neil the wrong way when she tells him that his points are way off the mark. Sofia tells them that Chancellor needs to update their image and Kay takes immediate offense. Sofia gives them her own report and asks them to keep an open mind but Neil has some questions. Later, Neil wonders why he hasn’t met Sofia before now and if it’s because she is here to do Tucker’s dirty work but Sofia assures him that Tucker is capable of that all on his own. Abby confronts her father but her anger gets the better of her and Victor tells her that she won’t see a dime of her trust fund until she grows up. Meanwhile, Phyllis learns about Abby and Daniel’s sex tape and goes ballistic. Daniel tries to calm her down by telling her that she will stay away from Abby but Phyllis is incensed, wanting to know what Daniel was thinking getting involved with a hot mess like Abby Newman.

Victoria is taken aback when Victor tells her about his visit from Tucker and Ashley and inquires about her trip to Japan. Meanwhile, Jack tells Abby that she should be second only to Victor in terms of how much power she should have at Newman now and although grateful for the information, Abby tells Jack she isn’t interested in being his puppet the way Colleen was. Later, Jack antes up with Abby and tells her that he wants something from Victor and so does she and that they should form a partnership. Abby agrees as long as she gets cash immediately. At Restless Style, Daniel confronts Billy about lying to Abby about the cover and Billy wonders why it matters to Daniel and what Abby means to him. It becomes clear to Daniel that Billy is yanking his chain just as Nikki shows up wanting to know what Billy’s intentions are for Victoria. As Malcolm and Sofia are getting reacquainted Tucker calls and asks to meet with both of them now. After a roll in the hay, Sofia tries to get Malcolm up to meet Tucker but he is less than enthusiastic.

Nick threatens to sick the S.E.C. on them but Adam and Skye don’t even flinch, telling Nick that they have nothing to hide with the Newman Fund. Victoria is stung when Victor tells her that he expects better from her while they are discussing the way she handled things in Japan and Victoria tells him that next time he can handle his own dirty work. Meanwhile, Billy is open and honest with Nikki about his feelings for Victoria and about the conflict it causes running Restless Style and Nikki is genuinely impressed. Later, after her fight with Victor, Victoria seeks solace from Nikki. Victoria tells her mother that she thinks it may be time to move on from Newman since her father doesn’t believe that she is competent to do her job. Victoria immediately goes on the defensive when Nikki tells her about her talk with Billy, assuming the worst. Abby proposes to Victor that she come to work at Newman and they produce “The Naked Heiress” together. When Victor says no to the idea Abby tells him he doesn’t have a choice, since she is the second largest stockholder. Victor tells her that as majority stockholder he has the say over any project and he will not allow this. Abby throws a fit and storms out of the ranch. Later, Abby comes to Daniel for a little understanding and as she is explaining to him just why “The Naked Heiress” is so important to her Daniel finally sees a whole new side to Abby. He kisses her and things heat up. Post-sex, they are talking about Abby’s horse and Abby gets an idea. Just as Malcolm and Sofia are discussing her relocation, Jack arrives to see Tucker.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

Courtesy/ABC

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke is “Slap” Happy … And Don’t We Love It?

Several characters are pushing the buttons of Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) these days on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and in return for their nasty remarks and machinations they have pulled, they have been on the receiving end of a wallop when Brooke’s hand meets their face!

First, there was Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), who was on the receiving end of bitch-slap from Brooke.  Now on Friday’s episode, it was another showdown – Shauna (Denise Richards) vs. Brooke.

Now that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is looking to move in with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for awhile to give space for him and Brooke to hopefully repair their strained relationship, Brooke shows up at Shauna’s.  Then, the gloves come off, and Brooke wants to know what happened the night Shauna spent with a drunken Ridge.  Shauna tells Brooke that she just made sure that her hubby was alright.  Brooke questions Shauna about not calling her to pick up Ridge. Shauna reminds Brooke that she told her off shortly before that night.

Then, Brooke channels her late mother-in-law, Stephanie Forrester and calls Shauna, “A slut from the desert.”   Shauna bites back saying that she is not the only slut, after all, Brooke slept with all the Forrester men and that Deacon, Hope’s father, was actually her son-in-law!

That was enough for Brooke to slap Shauna, and she really hit her target … so much so … that during the scene, Denise Richards’ earring came off!  During the slap, Brooke warns Shauna to stay away from Ridge with the following words : “He knows you’re trash. Do you understand me?”

Seems to us that Thomas and Shauna might be the next duo to conspire to destroy Ridge and Brooke from ever reconciling.

So, are you loving that Brooke is laying the smackdown on all those who wronged her and her family?  Do you think Thomas and Shauna might end up in an unholy alliance? Comment below.   But first, watch this soapalicious scene featuring Katherine Kelly Lang and Denise Richards.
