Chance comes up with a plan to expose Ronan and tries to find a way to tell Chloe the truth about what happened with Heather. 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.

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, Daniel meets with Abby and she tells him that she wants him to meet her producer, which Daniel has no interest in. When Kent arrives Abby dives right in, wanting to know when they start filming their first episode. Later, Phyllis is none to pleased about Daniel’s debut on the cover of Restless Style.

Kay asks Jill to give Lauren some time to process what’s just happened to her. Kay and Neil wonder what is going on with Tucker when he sends Sofia Dupre to an important meeting in his place. 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.

Ashley meets with Jack to get his help brainstorming ideas on how to get Beauty of Nature away from Victor. Jack tells her to call Tucker because he has a proposition for him. Jack offers to get BofN for Tucker in exchange for becoming co-CEO with Ashley of Jabot and Tucker takes him up on the offer. Daniel tells Phyllis that there is more to Abby than people think. Meanwhile, Victor tells Ashley that Abby’s reality show is off the table. Jack meets with Abby and Abby tells him that although it will devastate her, she is going to sell Brad’s house in order to pay for her show. Jack, however, tells her that there may be another way. Later, Phyllis considers going back to work at Jabot. Meanwhile, Jack tells Abby that she can use her Newman stock in order to leverage the power she needs to get what she wants. Things with Jill and Lauren go from bad to worse when Lauren tells Jill that she will never accept her as her sister because her father never accepted her as his daughter. Sofia surprises Malcolm at the magazine office and he is thrilled to have his fiancé in town. Neil on the other hand isn’t happy to hear from Tucker that Sofia is going to be handling more of Tucker’s work at Chancellor from now on.

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. Sofia promises to make sure that Malcolm won’t have any more family conflicts with Neil but Malcolm isn’t so sure she can keep that promise where Tucker is concerned. Later, Tucker asks Sofia to relocate to Genoa City in order to handle things with Jack Abbott. Meanwhile, Jack tells Abby that they need to take their time but Abby isn’t interested in patience. As Adam and Skye are in the middle getting The Newman Fund up and running, Nick stops by to find out just what kind of con they are running. 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. Jack is wary when he realizes that he will be dealing with Sofia but quickly impressed by her sass and business sense.

Meanwhile, Heather tells Ronan that she doesn’t trust him and she is going to do everything she can to get Chance reinstated.

Later, Nina, Paul and Chris remember the child that was stolen from Nina and admits that she wishes she knew that he was okay. At the club, mayhem ensues as the Newmans are stunned by Abby’s naked entrance and Daniel films the entire thing nearby. Victor gets up to cover Abby up but she tells him that she is trying to sell her horse and doesn’t want to be covered as Victor tries to stop Daniel from filming. Later, as Victor is trying to straighten things out with the police and keep Abby out of the media, Abby steps in and says that she doesn’t want that but Victor takes Daniel’s camera and smashes it making it very clear that what she wants doesn’t matter. At the coffeehouse, Kevin tells Chloe that he is afraid Ryder is gone for good and that could mean he will lose Crimson Lights.

Kevin and Chloe go to the club to find out more about Jana and Ryder and learn from the club’s manager that Ryder and Jana left together without paying their bill. Later, the manager shows Kevin and Chloe pictures of Jana and Ryder leaving their room with suitcases, kissing and Kevin realizes that if the police don’t find them he will lose everything. At the coffeehouse, Chloe doesn’t realize that when Chance shows up he is there to protect Heather rather than to see her. When Chance rebuffs her romantic advances once again, however, Chloe asks Chance what is going on with him. Meanwhile, as Chris, Nina and Paul are discussing Nina’s child, Chris leaves abruptly which Nina and Paul notice and wonder if there is more going on with Chris than they realized. Later, Chris calls Ronan at the coffeehouse and tells him that Nina and Paul are looking for him. Ronan tells her that she needs to stop them now. Moments later, officers arrive to arrest Chance for drug possession. Adam tells Skye that he is meeting with Vance and that since Patty confessed to Hightower’s murder to he is feeling a lot more confident. Meanwhile, Patty has a nightmare of the night of Hightower’s murder and wakes up in a cold sweat whispering to herself that she didn’t do it. Paul arrives to visit Patty and realizes that she is in distress over Hightower’s murder. Paul calls Emily to come and help Patty try to figure things out. Jack however, is not too pleased when Emily agrees to go to the hospital to help Patty. At the station, Chloe and Nina wait for word on Chance as Ronan, Heather and Chris arrive and Chris is astonished to see how grownup Heather is. As Chloe and Nina are catching Chris up, Chloe tells Nina that before the arrest Chance was acting strangely. In the interrogation room, Chance points the finger at Ronan as the one who set him up and planted the drugs in his car. As Chance tries to defend himself to Owen and Sid, Ronan exposes his affair with Heather to them. Later, Sid suspends Chance without pay for this behavior with Heather until I.A.B. can clear him. At the hospital, after talking to Patty, Emily tells Paul that it is clear that her confession is more questionable than ever and she is calling the D.A. Meanwhile, Vance assures Adam and Skye that Adam will be a free man soon but Jack tells them not to get ahead of themselves. Chance takes off from the station without a word to Nina or Chloe and Heather tells them that Ronan hung Chance out to dry.

Paul arrives before more can be said and Heather and Nina fill him in.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Elizabeth and Jason Have a Heart-to-Heart; Is a Liason Reunion Possible?

Have Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) 2.0 finally gone kaput? It would seem so. On Monday’s June 10th episode of General Hospital, it looks like the two now have what could be an insurmountable rift. Finn is drinking and can’t stop. Liz finds him with another woman drunk in his apartment, and can’t put herself in another relationship with someone who has an addiction (Remember, Lucky?).

Who should save Liz from an uncomfortable situation with Finn, but none other than Jason (Steve Burton). He comes upon on the scene where Finn is grabbing Liz’s hand to not leave him, but she insists it’s over between them.

Finn has hit his lowest point.  He has continued to spiral downward since the death of his father, Gregory.  Jason brings Liz to the Metro Court pool, which is closed at this time.

She admits to Jason, she wasn’t ready to go home and answer questions from her kids. A somber Jason says that she deserves better than what Finn is giving to her right now, and Liz feels so do her kids. They dip their feet in the pool. Liz jokes she can’t believe she got thee Jason Morgan to take off his shoes. He coyly asks her not to tell anyone.

Liz says she wants to support Finn through his grief, but Jason says Finn is pushing her away. She asks Jason how he knew to find her at Finn’s. That’s when he reveals, their son, Jake was worried about her, so it was Jake who reached out to him.

Courtesy/ABC

Next, Liz thanks Jason for being here for him, listening to her and extolling some advice.  Jason says he knows he is no place to be giving advice because he left her and Sam to raise his sons all on their own.

However, Liz points out it’s not because he didn’t want to be there. On that note, she’s pretty sure he wasn’t on vacation all the years he was away from his children. Jason says he’s here now and he will do whatever he can to make things up to Jake. Liz says just showing up to help her will go a long way with Jake, as it also goes along way with her.

You can watch the heartfelt scenes between Rebecca Herbst and Steve Burton below. Liason has been trending this evening on X.  Should GH consider putting Elizabeth and Jason back together? Weigh-in via the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Gregory’s Loved Ones Gather to Say Goodbye

On the Wednesday, June 7th episode of General Hospital, it was time for Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) memorial, which as Gregory wanted would be having his ashes spread with his loved ones in attendance.

The memorial service was held at the park bench in which he used to sit and read to Violet (Jophielle Love), which now has a plaque with his name imprinted on it.

Chase (Josh Swickard) was put in charge of the gathering, by his late father. In very well-written scenes, each of the man’s loved ones and friends extolled words of wisdom they learned from him that will forever remain with them and in their hearts.

Finn (Michael Easton) shares how much his dad, who was suffering from ALS, loved this spot and that when the climb up the hill became too much, he insisted he could make it on his own. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) speaks to what a good man that Gregory was. Violet reads a poem.

Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) opens up about how ALS is a devastating disease that takes resolve to handle, and Gregory had a lot of resolve. He made her aware of the limitations she put on her own life. She admits Gregory got her to jump out of a plane with him and that the two passionately kissed, which surprised everyone in attendance.

Tracy (Jane Elliot) talks with sadness about Gregory being a missed opportunity, and if she had known him sooner, longer and better, who knows what might have been. In the moral to her time with Gregory, Tracy expressed, “If an opportunity doesn’t present itself, make one. Contrary to conventional wisdom, you can miss what you didn’t have.”

Chase spoke last and says his dad taught him to find something remarkable in every person you meet. Next, Chase begins to scatter Gregory’s ashes around the tree, and then hands the container to Finn, so he can spread the last part of the ashes.

Afterwards, Tracy hosts a reception at the Metro Court. She and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) share a shot for Gregory. Alexis tells Finn, she is heading to an AA meeting, but first they discuss the kiss with his dad. Elizabeth and her boys make their exit, and then Chase goes looking for Finn and finds him at the bar. What he sees upsets him, as Finn is knocking back shots one after the other.

What did you think about Gregory’s memorial service? Did you reach for the hankies? What do you think will happen next to Finn now that he is continuing to drink? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Nicole Has Long-Awaited Showdown With Sloan as Carlivati Writing Regime Episodes Begin Again

On the Friday, May 31st episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati promised a nod to the audience that the script they are watching came from his writing team, their first, since the writers strike.

At the beginning of today’s show, one of Carlivati’s favorite muses, Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), is sitting with his laptop saying how bad The Spectator’s writing has gotten, expressing, “No offense Everett, but the quality of the writing has really gone down hill the last couple of months. But that is about to change starting today.”

With that, the viewers finally get the long-awaited confrontation between Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sloan (Jessica Serfaty), which seemed, at first, a bit odd that Sloan snuck into the DiMera mansion to confront Nicole in the first place, when she should be on the run.

Sloan tells Nicole there’s something she has to hear. Nicole starts to call Rafe (Galen Gering) to lock her up, but Sloan stops her. She swears to Nicole she didn’t plan to kidnap Jude. Dimitri showed up with him just as she was running out of options after her adoption fell through with Eric.  “It felt like fate,” Sloan says. “I’ll show you fate,” Nicole shouts and punches Sloan’s lights out.

Nicole is mortified of what Sloan put her through and the lengths of her lies and deceit. That’s when Sloan reminds Nicole she did the exact same thing to Sami (Alison Sweeney) years ago. So, she goes on to say, because of how she stole a baby from its birth mother, maybe she can show her some grace. Nicole shouts, “Never!”

Sloan starts to make her exit as Nicole is calling the cops, and just as Sloan makes it to the doorway, Eric (Greg Vaughan) shows up. Will she tell Eric he is the biological father of baby Jude before EJ (Dan Feuerriegel)​​ returns home?

Photo: JPI

Meanwhile, outside the Brady Pub, EJ runs into Leo and Leo is on to him. He realizes something is up with Sloan and baby Jude and EJ’s part in any cover-up just as Rafe arrests Melinda  (Tina Huang) for seemingly her part of hatching the baby switch plot.

Courtesy/Peacock

Elsewhere, Bobby (Blake Berris) has control of Everett right in front of Jada (Elia Cantu), Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), who shows up to help him. It’s now defined to everyone that Bobby is an alter that is protecting Everett from finding out something terrible that happened to him, which caused his split personality.

So, what did you think of the Nicole/Sloan baby switch showdown? Underwhelming? Great? What did you think of the first show back from the regular DAYS writing regime? Do you like how things moved? Do you not like the direction? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
