At Restless Style, Nick sees an old copy of the magazine with Adam and Sharon on the cover. Adam searches through at stack of memory cards for evidence to help Sharon. Sharon wakes up in bed with Sam. As Sam sleeps, she begins writing a letter to him explaining her life, and recounts, in detail, everything that has happened to her. Nick and Noah express their pain at the loss of Sharon. Adam looks at Sharon’s engagement ring and recounts how much she’s changed his life.  Sharon completes her letter to Sam, thanking him for giving her a second chance. However, as Sam stirs, she has second thoughts. ­Sharon wakes up in Sam’s bed and sneaks out. He finds her in the barn as she’s packing. She insists that he shouldn’t get involved with her, but he is sure they can work out.

Abby admits to Noah that she hasn’t told her parents that she left rehab. She explains to him the night Tucker was hit, and adds she saw Eden in rehab. Eden and Noah come face to face at the coffeehouse. Victor, Lauren, Michael, Victoria and the other board members gather for the Newman board meeting. Victor indicates that Adam won’t make it, but Adam arrives, and argues with his father throughout the meeting. At Restless Style, Billy hands over the keys to Nick. He learns that Nick has hired Phyllis to work there, and lashes out at her for using the magazine to get custody of Lucy.  Victor accuses Adam of being a fraud. Victor meets with Michael, who informs him that the SEC is focusing their investigation on Diane. Victor furiously insists that they should pursue Adam instead.  Victoria accuses Nick of taking advantage of Billy. Nick is equally annoyed to learn that she has accepted a position on the Newman board. Billy returns to his trailer and makes a call to his bookie. Later, the bookie arrives, demanding payment. Victoria shows up and wants to know why Billy sold Restless Style.  Adam finds something on one of the memory cards and excitedly makes a phone call.

­Eden and Noah discuss their relationship and Eden’s stay in rehab. Devon and Daniel both express to Lily that they will protect her from Cane. Lily explains to Daniel that she needs to confront Cane, and finds him at the park. Cane promises to stay away from her under one condition. Sam asks Sharon to move in with him. In Sam’s bedroom, they begin to make love.  Adam is rushing out of his suite as Diane arrives. He has no time for her and runs off. She stops the door from closing, sneaks into his room and checks his computer. She sees that someone named “Gingerman” e-mailed Adam some footage. Phyllis and Nick work on an article to expose Adam. Adam enters and asks them to help him prove that Sharon didn’t kill Skye. Diane runs into Michael at Gloworm and expresses her disappointment that his promise to make the SEC back off fell through. Diane contacts “Gingerman” and informs him that the Naked Heiress is about to put on a show.

Abby expresses to Daniel that she thinks they should try being a couple again. Gingerman and some paparazzi arrive and start snapping Abby’s photo. Diane approaches Gingerman and explains she has a proposition for him. Deacon approaches Diane and offers to help. Michael arrives at the coffeehouse and is shocked to see Eden.

Cane pays Jill a visit at Fenmore’s. Jill lashes out at him for not telling her that Colin was his father. Cane insists he was protecting her, since Colin threatened to kill her if he told. Jill tells Cane to leave town, but Cane insists he needs to stay in Genoa City as long as Colin and Genevieve are in town. Genevieve arrives and tells Jill to be glad her marriage with Colin was invalid, annoying Jill. After Jill leaves, Genevieve tries to convince Cane to return home with her, as she is his only ally. Cane wants nothing to do with her.

Daniel and Lily go for a run together in the park. Daniel asks Lily if she’s considered divorcing Cane. Lily says she needs time before making such a decision. Daniel reminds her that she can’t have a relationship without trust. Daniel apologizes for hurting her during their marriage, but Lily is glad that they’re friends now. At the coffeehouse, Kay clears things up with Ashley, saying her desire to keep Ashley away from Tucker was never personal. Ashley understands and says she would do anything to protect her child.

Adam and Noah continue to sift through the computer memory cards. Adam tells Noah that he found some footage of lava, and that his friend is trying to restore it. Noah tells Adam that he has to leave, since he, Nick and Doris are planning to spread Sharon’s ashes today. Adam is disappointed at being left out. Noah meets up with Nick and Doris at the coffeehouse, where they reminisce about good times with Sharon. As they leave, Adam watches from the patio.  At the park, Doris makes a speech about now Sharon liked this spot, with a stream below the footbridge, because it was peaceful. Noah, Nick and Doris each express their loving memories of Sharon, and then scatter the ashes in the stream. Adam watches silently from his hiding place. Later, Adam steps on to the bridge and speaks to Sharon, promising he will clear her name.

Sam tells a surprised Sharon to get ready for the town dance tonight. He offers Sharon a dress borrowed from Piper’s mother, but Sharon declines to attend, disappointing Sam. Sam arrives at the dance, where Piper, Lee and Piper’s mother are waiting to meet “Sheri.” Later, Piper finds Sharon at home and insists they are going to the dance together. She says that this will be the first time Sam has gone to the dance since his wife left him there. Brenda, a waitress, arrives at the dance and informs Marco, Lee and Sam that she was carjacked. Piper arrives at the dance with Sharon. Sam is blown away by how beautiful Sharon looks. Kay runs into Colin at the coffeehouse, and swears that she will take him down. She angrily warns him to stay away from Jill. Colin insists he has real feelings for Jill, as Jill arrives and tells Kay that she wants to speak to Colin alone. Jill tells Colin things are over between them, but he insists that he’ll keep pursuing her until he wins her back. At Fenmore’s, Kay and Ashley are discussing the new Jabot launch when Genevieve arrives and introduces herself to an annoyed Kay. Genevieve informs Kay that she is staying at the old McMillan estate, and invites Kay to stop by. However, Kay tells her she wants nothing to do with Genevieve or her degenerate family.

At the dive bar, Cane asks the bartender for a job and is hired immediately. Daniel and Lily enter, sweaty from their run. Jack arrives at Restless Style and congratulates Phyllis on her new job. He says that Phyllis is where she belongs, implying that she and Nick are back together. Jack leaves, passing Noah. Noah introduces Phyllis to his friend Hunter and suggests that Hunter could be an intern at the magazine. Phyllis isn’t opposed to the idea. At the coffeehouse, Ashley is playing with Faith. Nick gets a call from the babysitter, who is canceling, and Ashley offers to fill in. Nick realizes that Faith’s yellow blanket is missing and goes to find it. At the footbridge, Adam finds Faith’s blanket and picks it up. Nick arrives and lashes out at Adam for imposing himself where he’s not wanted, just like he did with Sharon’s funeral. Adam says he just wants to say goodbye to Sharon and wonders why Nick insists on hurting him. Nick says Adam deserves to be hurt. Adam says that Nick is still angry that Sharon chose him over Nick. Nick returns to the magazine and demands that Phyllis make the article about Adam even more damaging. While working on the article, Phyllis and Nick begin joking around and flirting. They suddenly realize their mutual attraction and closeness to each other. They begin to kiss passionately. Adam meets with Emmett, who is trying to restore the video of Sharon helping Skye in the volcano. After a few tries, Adam is ecstatic to hear Sharon’s voice say, “Give me your other hand.” Adam thanks Emmett for his help and is happy to now have proof of Sharon’s innocence.

Sam is thrilled that Sharon has come to the dance and pulls her into a kiss. Piper brings her parents over and introduces her mother to “Sheri.” Brenda passes by the group and catches sight of Sharon, saying that she knows her. Sharon denies knowing Brenda, but Marco says that Brenda has a good eye for faces. Lee and Marco supervise as several men drag the carjacker into the party. Brenda exclaims that he’s the one who took her car. The carjacker locks eyes with Sharon, and she flashes to being carjacked by him after her escape from jail. Later, Sharon shares a romantic dance with Sam as Green River Ordinance plays. Meanwhile, the carjacker speaks intensely with Marco and Lee outside the party. Lee re-enters the dance and tells Sharon that she’s under arrest.

Jack finds Ashley babysitting Faith and asks her if she thinks taking care of the little girl is a good idea. Ashley insists that Faith needs her, since Sharon is dead and Nikki’s in rehab. Jack expresses his excitement about the new Jabot line and encourages Ashley to get back into the lab again. Jack is shocked to learn that Tucker has put Ashley in charge of all of McCall Unlimited, including Jabot. Ashley is unable to make Jack any promises about his future, and he angrily exclaims that Jabot belongs to him. Noah takes Hunter to the footbridge to show her where he scattered his mom’s ashes. Noah expresses his regret about their last angry conversation and that he never got to say goodbye to Sharon.

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’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!

Roger Howarth Returns to General Hospital and Debuts His New Character

Thursday was a special day for longtime fans of General Hospital and those of fan favorite Roger Howarth.  Today, Howarth returned in his new role on the ABC daytime drama series, who’s name is “Austin” and that viewers learn is a doctor, and that is all we know thus far.

General Hospital and Howarth previously noted that even though he was killed-off a few months ago as Franco Baldwin after he was shot in a struggle with Peter August (Wes Ramsey) that he would make his re-emergence on the canvas sometime in May.

Now with summer right around, Howarth is back.  When we first see his new soap incarnation of “Austin”, he comes to the rescue of Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), who has gone into labor and found her way into the woods to escape the clutches of evil Nurse Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown) and Peter’s machinations.

And … as she just so happens to need a doctor, lo and behold there is Austin in the woods from what appears to be a hike, who ultimately helps deliver Maxie’s baby girl.  Trouble is, at the end of the episode, it appears that baby Louise might not be breathing.

In a summer preview for GH, in the brand new issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands this weekend, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased, “Roger’s new character has an interest in a prominent Port Charles family.  He’ll shake up the canvas in surprising ways as summer unfolds.”
