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.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This entire week, Daytime Emmy winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) has been acting her heart out as viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful watched Steffy’s quick descent into drug addiction take complete hold of her, thanks in part to a “gift” from Vinny!

What the story has allowed the writers, Wood, and the daytime drama to do is play the beats of what may have felt swept under the rug – the devastation of Steffy having “Phoebe” (who was actually baby Beth) taken from her and returned to her biological mother, Hope (Annika Noelle)- and it was then Hope who also got the man Steffy loved, Liam (Scott Clifton), back in her life –  leaving Steffy feeling alone, abandoned, and vulnerable.

Throughout this week’s airshows, Steffy tried to hide and deny her pill-popping from Liam who found her passed out on the couch, unresponsive, and their daughter, Kelly, unattended to, which began the series of scenes pitting them against each other.  But where Jacqui hit the home run, and is certainly now a front-runner for the Lead Actress trophy come next year’s 48th annual Daytime Emmys competition, was on Friday’s heartbreaking episode.

In story, after Kelly was taken by Liam, Steffy has come to get her child back and take her home, while strung out.  Liam, Hope and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) try to reason with Steffy to let Kelly stay with them while she takes care of herself and then she can have Kelly back.  However, Steffy gets further agitated that she doesn’t need help or therapy; she just needs her daughter!

Steffy demands Hope get out of her way as she is going to get Kelly… but just then Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) enters.  Steffy pleads with her father to help her through her tears saying that Liam and Hope stole Kelly, and are keeping her in the cabin with Donna. Ridge is annoyed at first and wants an explanation. Brooke tells him there’s a lot going on he doesn’t realize.

Liam pipes up and tells Ridge that Steffy’s been abusing pain pills and he hopes he will listen to him and help Steffy now.  Ridge doesn’t think Steffy would lie about taking pills but Liam explains how he found the bottle of pills. Now cornered, Steffy breaks down and admits she took a few pills, because she has been in so much pain and going through such a difficult time since the accident, and even before that!  She also tells her father how the Logans are once again destroying the Forresters, and how he chose Brooke over Taylor, and how Liam left her for Hope.   Ridge says they will get her help, but Steffy is not interested, and won’t have it, and pulls a switchblade on the group demanding Kelly be returned to her.

It is then Ridge asks her now that she has the blade out; what is her plan? What is her next step?  Realizing what she is doing, Steffy cries and drops the knife. But not before saying that she’ll never forgive Ridge or any of them for what they are doing to her.  She runs out, while Ridge goes after her, leaving Liam devastated.

This performance by Wood was so gut-wrenching that Michael Fairman TV names Jacqueline’s work the Power Performance of the Week.

Watch the final seven minutes of Friday’s episode of Wood’s tour de force performance.  Then let us know what you thought of Jacqueline in this week’s episodes on B&B via the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Has a Comeback, Kaitlyn Bristowe Overcomes Injury, One Couple Is Eliminated

On Tuesday evenings second night of competition in the new season of Dancing with the Stars, three former soap stars took to the ballroom dance floor in a night which also featured for the first time this season … the viewers vote counting for 50% of the total score, and one couple being sent home.

The “drama” of the episode was if former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe’s ankle would be OK enough for her to dance her routine.  With her being placed at the end of the show and then “wowing” everyone – it was hard to know how bad the injury was, but, as she detailed on the show she did receive a cortisone shot before performing and changed shoes to help her get through.

Meanwhile, Chrishell Stause, the former AMC, DAYS and Y&R star, currently on the reality hit, Selling Sunset, showed improvement, while ex- Passions, Desperate Housewives and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe continued to bring the heat – although the judges want him to dance with less use of his facial expressions – and Daytime Emmy winner Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marley, AW)  continued to be having the time of her life from her performances.

Here’a what went down…

Kaitlyn Bristowe and partner Artem Chigvintsev (Foxtrot): Performing to Leann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” and with the uncertainty of if she would dance at all, Bristowe, who wanted to be a dancer, got major kudos from the judges for her dramatic lines and moves fluidly through the dance floor and closed the night – combined total score of last week and this week 42 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Anne Heche and partner Keo Mostepe (Foxtrot): Performing to One Republic’s “Counting Stars”,  Heche revealed this was one of her favorite songs, and she also revealed this dance was to honor her two sons.  Although the judges did not feel Heche delivered as strongly with this performance than in the season opener, Anne still looked like she was enjoying every second of being on the floor – combined total score 36 out of 60

Chrishell Stause and partner Gleb Savchenko (Rumba):  Stause showed her vulnerability including sharing a story from her childhood past.  Then then duo danced to “This Is Me” from the Greatest Showman.  During the performance, Stause looked more fluid on the floor than the previous week and was praised for her improvement  – Combined total score 31 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Jesse Metcalfe and partner Sharna Burgess (Foxtror): This duo performed to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and played up their chemistry on the floor. The critique from the judges had more to do with Jesse not looking so intense, and also his posture, but all told they did well – Combined score was 38 out of 60.

Now to the first elimination:  Carole Baskin and Charles Oakley were the celebrities in the bottom two.   It was up to the judges to decide which celebrity would be saved.  Bruno picked Charles, but Carrie Ann picked Carole, leaving Derek to cast the deciding vote … and he saved Carole.

So what did you think of how Chrishell, Anne and Jesse did on last night’s DWTS?  Did the right celeb get sent packing? What did you think of Kaitlyn’s dance and ankle injury? Comment below, but first check out their dances.
