Great rundown, Michael.I still believe that the real Cane is alive and pretending to be Caleb instead of vice a versa. I know it’s far fetched, but I’m sticking with it. And why does Colin want the babies? That still has to be addressed.. Chance left before and I say ,goodbye, I won’t miss you. Now, we should get rid of Heather. To many uninteresting characters floating around. But, I still am invested in Y&R……………..

A little off-description. There is no dinner in the main house — Sam brings it to the barn and that is where they eat.

Also, why no mention of Sharon breaking the glass with the mention of “pasta primavera” — a complete throwback to her first Thanksgiving dinner with Adam. And further why no mention of Adam’s very emotional description of his feelings for Sharon, wherein Diane comments that he has a lot of his mother, as well as his father.

Sounds like selective description to me. That is why I watch the youtubes for myself.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.

Y&R’s Sharon Case Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Standalone, dream or nightmare-centric episodes on your favorite soaps, require the audience to go along for the ride and also require the actor who is featured in it to make the material work – no matter if some of it may come off as cheesy, or may be over-dramatic, or seemingly out there.

On Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, longtime vet, Sharon Case (Sharon) was front and center in an episode that had her in almost every single scene, and performing via clever ways the writing team told the story of a woman preparing for her first round of chemo in her battle with breast cancer.  Throughout the show, Y&R made sure that many key beats of the feelings anyone about to go under this treatment, or anyone about to embark on major surgery, or a potential life-changing moments would feel.   In moment after moment, Sharon Case gave one of the finest performances of her storied Y&R career.

It begins with her beau, Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) trying to be there for her as Sharon kind of skirts the emotional toll of what tomorrow will bring for her, and how she is dreading the entire experience.  When Rey prompts her to talk about what’s in her heart. Sharon’s afraid if she opens up, she’ll scream and won’t be able to stop.  She admits she is terrified but won’t let herself go there.   Not wanting him to touch her or she will break down, Sharon decides to sleep upstairs, while Rey sleeps on the couch.

And that is where the dream begins, as a restless Sharon sees her dead daughter, Cassie, (Camryn Grimes reprises her role) who tells her: “I need you to come with me.”  When she won’t Cassie;s outreached hand, which Sharon believes will lead her to heaven, she runs downstairs to find Rey, but he is gone.  Since this is her dream, she next winds up at Crimson Lights where she learns Rey dumped her and left town for Miami, while Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) scoffs that no one would want to be with her like this!  Next, Nick appears and takes Phylllis out on a date, leaving Sharon upset.

Switch to next scenario: and as Sharon sees doctors beginning surgery on her, and she finds herself in the set of GC Buzz, as her other daughter, Mariah hosts an episode about how Sharon changed after her surgery!  Nick,Phyllis and Rey are it, spouting how negative Sharon was, and how she changed.  Then, Sharon becomes hysterical as she sees herself flatline. She screams at the doctors to not just leave her there … alone!

Next, Sharon shows up at the Grand Phoenix, as none other than Phyllis escorts her to radiation therapy. Mariah (Camryn Grimes). who shows up with a cane for her, brings her a mirror, and as Sharon holds it up, she sees she is wearing a headscarf as she must have lost all of her hair in the chemo.  Faith (Alyia Alyn Lind) runs on to the scene, and Cassie reappears and tells Sharon: “Mom, it’s time. It’s time to go home. Please don’t be afraid.”

Finally, Sharon is in the present and sees that Mariah and Rey are downstairs and she promises to not shut them out.  She tells them about her dream with Cassie and how the cancer has made her feel isolated.   Sharon comes to the conclusion. and promises. she will let the people she loves know that she needs them.  When she reveals she’s hungry, food is whipped up, as Nick and Faith come by to join them.

In the final moments, (grab your hankies), Sharon had a request that her daughters sleep next to her for the night.  We see Faith, and Mariah on each side of Sharon as Cassie watches upon them.

Kudos to Sharon Case for playing the vulnerability of a woman about to undergo chemo, the nuances of every scene she was called on to portray within the dream sequences, and for delivering it in such a way that was respectful, enlightening, and powerful for anyone undergoing something as difficult as this in their own lives.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Sharon Case, this week’s “Power Performance of the Week”.

THE BACHELOR: A Telenovela & Four Contestants Sent Packing

It seems like Peter Weber, our “Bachelor”, finally got a clue, and wasn’t going to continue to be wishy-washy…. or will he fall back into his old ways? Wednesday night brought “Bachelor Nation”, yet another two-hour episode of The Bachelor, following its usual Monday installment.

Picking up in Chile, Victoria P. dug her own grave and was sent to home, after lying about knowing Alayah prior to being on the reality-competition series.  When she goes to talk with Peter about trying to get back on track with him, he lowers the boom on her and says: “I don’t know if I see you as my wife.”  Victoria P. loses it and wants to get in a limo and drive away ASAP.  Once in the car, she looks straight in the camera with tears and mascara dripping down her face.

For Telenovela and soap fans, the episode came with the gals and Peter performing a script to a soap opera, Latin America-style.  Mykenna got the role of the maid, the one who was constantly ignored, but longed for her man. Mykenna said she can play the part, because that is how it feels right now with Peter.  He doesn’t really see her, or spend much time with her versus the other women in the competition.

Later, when alone with the other women in the competition, after previously saying she was ready to walk from the show, Mykenna now said she is having the time of her life. Cue Tammy who stirs up trouble for everyone, by calling people out on things they say or do; whether true or not true. This time Tammy and Mykenna get into a yelling match over Mykenna’s true intentions.  Peter, who is outside with Madison on a one-on-one dare, hears the screaming.  They exit to be alone.

Next, in a twist, Peter invites Tammy and Mykena on a two-on-one date.  After hearing each of their sides of the story, Peter gives the boot to Tammy. Later, in the event that she was lying, he gave Mykenna the boot too!

There was one more contestant that needed to go, so Peter also did not give a rose to Sydney. Remember, she  told Peter how she was bullied and made fun of growing up while in High School, because of her mixed-race background.  This week, photos surfaced of her on social media showing that she was a beauty pageant winner, when she was in High School – thus trying to say she must have been very popular to be saying she was so isolated growing up.

Victoria F. who also went on a one-on-one date with Peter for the second time, still seems confused if she wants to be there.  Peter says he genuinely has feelings for her, but she seems to be acting as if she is not sure. Peter wants to make sure she really wants to be here, when she says she doesn’t like the thought of him with the other women in the competition.  Remember, earlier this week, “Cosmo” revealed they took her and Peter off the digital cover of their magazine, because of former photos of her  modeling for “White Lives Matter”  Fuller said on her Instagram that “The company ‘We Love Marlins’ is in support of catching white, blue & black marlins and releasing them back into the wild,” which is what the “White Lives Matter” slogan meant to her and the company.

So are you glad that Tammy, Mykenna, Sydney and Victora P. all went home? Comment below.
