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.

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.

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, 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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
