Daisy tells Sharon she went to Fairview under a fake name to escape from Ricky. Daisy is surprised when Sharon tells her that Ricky is dead. Sharon tells a suspicious Daisy that she is only staying at Fairview temporarily. Daisy tries to tell the doctors that she checked in to escape from Ricky, while Sharon pretends to have no idea who Daisy is. Tucker tries to visit Sharon but learns that he can’t see her until she is released. Sharon lies about her stealing to Dr. Laurents and claims she is just trying to prove that Victor’s family is wrong about her. Sharon tries to sleep in the ward to escape her stress and has a nightmare about the night of Faith’s birth. Later, Daisy pleads with Dr. Laurents to release her.

Paul and Heather are puzzled by why Ricky would’ve bought something as sentimental as the snow globe. Avery arrives and informs Paul that his trial date is fast approaching and that finding Ricky’s video is their first priority. Paul discovers Ricky’s flash drive hidden in the snow globe. Heather calls Michael so he can see the evidence. Michael tells them that they should have waited for him to get there before breaking the globe as they all sit down to watch the video. Everyone is stunned to find that the only video is of Ricky claiming that if something happens to him the authorities should look to Paul.

Tucker and Billy toast to the mutual benefits they’re enjoying because of Victor’s absence. In Los Angeles, Genevieve is able to cover for her lack of medical expertise when Victor asks her to help a dockworker with a broken arm. Victor promises that he’ll help the dockworker get his job back. Blaukowski, the bartender, dismisses Genevieve’s attempts to get a job and Sister Celeste suggests that Genevieve leave town. Victor rally’s the dockworkers to fight for their rights and to stand up for Norm who got hurt on the job. Victor takes Norm to the hospital while one of the other dock workers plots against him.

Victoria is excited to be running Newman Enterprises again, while Nick reminds her that Sharon is only temporarily out. Victoria rehires Nick and prepares a document that protects both of them from being fired without approval from the Board. Tucker is forced to sign the document so as not to blow his cover. Later, Nick tells Victoria that Newman stock is already on the rise. Billy returns and Victoria shares her worries about Victor’s absence. Billy prepares to tell her what he knows about Victor.

Paul, Heather, Avery, and Michael continue to watch the video of Ricky as he says that Paul was trying to make it look like he was crazy. Everyone regrets showing Michael the video as Ricky tells his audience that he just wanted to get to know Paul and that he hopes this video will show people the truth. Avery and Heather try to suggest that the video can’t be used in court but Michael tells them he can’t ignore it. Paul is devastated that Ricky would go to such lengths to ruin his life. Heather apologizes for calling Michael before they knew what was on the tape. Avery and Heather agree that if the video gets to a jury, it will mean bad news for Paul.

Lauren is confident that she has to come forward about her giving Paul the gun he used to kill Ricky. Michael is opposed to the idea and he tries to convince Lauren not to throw herself under the bus for Paul, knowing it may not be enough to save him. Jack senses that something is bothering Sarge. Sarge tells Jack he lost a friend in the World Trade Center eleven years earlier. Jack takes Sarge’s words to heart and invites his family over for dinner.

Billy starts to tell Victoria what he knows about Victor’s whereabouts, but she interrupts before he can share what he knows. Billy believes she may be better off without Victor in her life but Victoria says she would rather have her father back than her dream job at Newman. Later at the Abbott mansion, everyone is overjoyed when they see Jack only needing a cane to walk. Jack toasts his family as the Abbott clan celebrates Jack’s improvement. Victoria shares that she believes Victor will be back any day. Abby states that the Abbotts are a tough breed and Kyle tells Jack that he is very proud to be his son. Billy and Victoria head home and make love. Lauren and Gloria accuse Jeffrey of only wanting a relationship with Chelsea because of her money. Chelsea and Adam agree to keep her pregnancy a secret until the first trimester is over. Kevin and Chloe arrive and toast the success of their business with Adam and Chelsea. When Chelsea gets a wave of nausea and opts not to drink the champagne, Chloe’s suspicions about Chelsea being pregnant are confirmed. Later at Crimson Lights, Chloe spills the beans about Chelsea’s pregnancy. Jeffrey and Gloria decide to pay Chelsea a visit. Adam dismisses a call from a reporter who is looking for a comment about Sharon. Adam tells Chelsea he is glad that Nick and Victoria are dealing with Newman Enterprises as he just wants to focus on her. Gloria and Jeffrey drop by for a visit. Adam and Chelsea are surprised to see a tiny flicker of sincerity in Jeffrey. Back at their house, Kevin finds a note from Chloe saying she has a surprise for him. Chloe returns with a pizza and a new puppy.

Neil and Harmony joke about all the mishaps they keep having on their dates together. They invite Sarge to join them for their dinner. Harmony and Neil learn that Sarge does not have any kids and notice his somber attitude. Neil and Harmony discuss their history and when Harmony says something about where she is from, Sarge seems effected by it. As everyone is preparing to leave, Sarge confuses Harmony when he asks about Pittsburgh. He abruptly leaves as she sits wondering what he meant.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

Courtesy/ABC

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.
