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.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.


As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.


Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.


For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
