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.

Summer notices an awkward moment between Phyllis and Nick as she leaves to meet Fenmore at Crimson Lights. Nick questions Phyllis about Ronan’s intentions. Kevin arrives and Nick apologizes that Kevin had to get dragged into the mess with Tim. Nick leaves to bring Summer her phone, while Phyllis tells Kevin about her fake affair with Ronan. They both are concerned that Michael is close to discovering the truth.

Michael doesn’t buy Ronan’s story about the affair and reiterates that all the evidence points towards Phyllis and Kevin. Michael updates Avery on the affair story as Fen arrives to borrow cash from Michael. Michael tells Avery that Ronan has never been the type of person to fall in love. Meanwhile, Beth is thrilled as she receives a package from Tim, while Ronan is on a call confirming that Beth got the package. Later, Michael meets with Kevin and pleads with him to tell him the truth for his and Chloe’s sake but Kevin keeps his secrets.  Ronan goes to see Phyllis and tells her that he sent Beth a plane ticket and money that she believes is from Tim. Phyllis is puzzled by why Ronan is going to such great lengths to protect her. She asks Ronan what his motives are for helping her but he dances around the real answer. Avery arrives and tells Phyllis she is doing terrible things to her marriage and Phyllis is bothered by her accusations. When Avery pushes the issue, Phyllis kicks her out.

At Crimson Lights, Nick offers to buy Fenmore and Summer concert tickets but Fen is nervous since Michael and Phyllis are at odds. Nick reminds them both that it is important to keep the people you care about close to you regardless of the circumstances. Fen tells Summer that she can talk to him about anything. Summer assumes something and demands to know what Fen is referring to. Fen confesses that he heard that Phyllis is having an affair with Ronan. Phyllis is stunned when Summer comes home and asks if she is cheating on Nick.

Nick remains closed off when Michael asks him about the affair. Michael says that he is only trying to help and that everyone is making things worse for themselves. Michael hears about Beth’s disappearance and is furious. Michael tells Ronan he is going to put a gag order on Beth before she does another interview. Avery arrives to discuss Paul but Michael is too focused on the mess with Phyllis. Nick questions Ronan as to why he is being so helpful if Phyllis and him are lying about the affair. Ronan tells Nick he is helping Phyllis because he wants to be with her.  Eden and Kyle catch up while Kevin and Chloe show them pictures of their new dog. Chloe asks Nick about Kevin’s partnership with Phyllis, while Nick is bothered that he has to keep up with Phyllis’ lies. At the Abbott mansion, Eden and Kyle open up with one another about their complicated history with their parents. Things heat up and Kyle takes Eden upstairs to his room. Later, Kevin tells Chloe he helped move Tim’s body. Chloe is upset that she also has to keep the secret and angrily walks out.

Summer is devastated when Phyllis tells her about the “affair”. Phyllis is mad that Michael allowed Fenmore to overhear his conversation. Summer is stunned to find out that Nick knows too. At Crimson Lights, Ronan confesses his feelings about Phyllis to a furious Nick. Ronan blocks Nick from punching him, as Nick warns him to stay away from Phyllis. Nick heads home as Summer storms out and they run into each other in the hallway. While Nick tries to stay calm about the situation, Summer runs out. Nick is livid that Phyllis put their daughter in this position. Phyllis explains that telling Summer the truth about Tim would be far worse than the lie she is telling. Nick tells Phyllis about Ronan’s confession and then says he is leaving to go and stay at the ranch.

At Crimson Lights, Fen tries to be supportive of Summer, but she wants to lash out and the two go running out on mission. Phyllis looks for Summer and runs into Billy. He tries to get a story out of her and she throws a drink into his face. Phyllis threatens to come after Billy if he mentions her or Summer on Restless Style TV. Later, Summer tries to spike her and Fen’s coffees with vodka but Ronan catches them. Ronan takes Summer back to the penthouse and tells Phyllis she should be grateful that he didn’t have Summer arrested.

In Los Angeles, Victor is wary of Genevieve but begins to let his guard down. He confesses that he feels like he has left people behind but cannot remember who. Genevieve calls Tucker and tells him that she thinks Victor may need help and is suffering from memory loss. Tucker tells her to continue what she is doing. Genevieve forgets her phone on the table in front of Victor.  At the Athletic Club, Nikki is thankful to see Jack out of his wheelchair. Jack tells Katherine and Nikki he thinks Victor may be with Genevieve who is also out of town. Nikki sees Ronan arrive and questions why he hasn’t had any leads on Victor. A distracted Ronan tells her to make an appointment. Katherine finds Genevieve’s phone number and gives it to Nikki. Nikki calls Genevieve’s phone but no one answers.

Victor questions Genevieve about the “Nikki Newman” that he saw on her caller ID, but she says she’s just a friend of hers. Later, Victor tries to rally the dock workers and one of them pulls Victor aside and tells him to stop causing trouble or someone will get hurt. Jack tells Tucker and Sofia about his purchasing Newman stock and his filing with the SEC. Sofia worries that Tucker will get in trouble for buying up too much stock. Nikki shares her concerns about Victor’s absence with Katherine. They leave as Katherine bumps into Tucker. She confesses that she wishes there was someway to know if Victor was alright, while Tucker continues to keep his secret about Victor’s whereabouts.

Victoria tells Billy that Jack is buying up Newman stock and wonders what his plans could be. Jack visits Victoria at Victor’s office and he tells her to watch out for Tucker. She thanks him for the heads up and informs him that she’ll be keeping an eye on him as well. Nick stops by and informs Victoria that he’ll be staying at the tack house. Later, Jack tells Billy about his conversation with Victoria and how he is confident that Victor will come back.

At the institution, Sharon has another bad dream about Faith and worries that her nightmares will cause Dr. Laurents to question her sanity. Dr. Laurents assures Sharon that he doesn’t intend to jump to any conclusions. Sharon tells him that there is no one more paranoid than Nick and Victoria and that she believes they’ve set her up. Dr. Laurents believes Sharon has a firm grasp on reality and Sharon asks him to release her so she can go run her company.

Ronan tells Phyllis about Summer’s attempts to drink. Phyllis tries to reprimand her, but Summer storms off. An angry Phyllis questions Ronan about what he told Nick. Ronan is honest about his feelings as Phyllis apologizes for freaking out. Phyllis calls Nick to tell him about Summer’s incident and that any other cop other than Ronan would’ve had her arrested. Phyllis apologizes to Ronan for lashing out at him as Daniel walks in. Daniel confronts Phyllis and lets her know that Summer told him what’s happening. He asks Phyllis if she plans on destroying her entire family.  Nick goes to work out at the club and runs into Nikki. She senses he is bothered and he tells her he is moving back to the ranch. Nikki confesses her worries about Victor’s absence, but Nick tries to reassure her that Victor will come home when he is ready. Later, Nikki asks Billy to help her find Victor.

Victoria puts the stockholders at ease as Billy texts Genevieve to check in on Victor. Billy heads out while Nick tells Victoria how Phyllis continually refuses to fully trust him and that he doesn’t know if he can continue to put up with it. Summer arrives and tries to blame her bad behavior on Phyllis. Nick reminds her of the trouble that Cassie got into with underage drinking. Summer is angry that she is the only one being punished as Nick takes her back to Phyllis’s penthouse.  Nick and Summer head back to the penthouse as Daniel leaves in frustration. Summer runs upstairs as Phyllis tries to reach out to an angry Nick. Nick tells Phyllis all of his frustrations about her lack of trust in him and tells her that he still plans on moving out. Summer tells Phyllis that if Nick moves out, she will never forgive her. Heather comforts Daniel about his frustrations with his family. Later, Daniel and Heather make love and he tells her that together they can get through anything.

Victor warns Moran, the dockworker not to threaten him. Sister Celeste tells Victor not to get his hopes up about changing things at the docks. Victor’s instinctive knowledge of business affairs startles him. Sister Celeste warns against taking action but Victor is fired up by the cause. Moran overhears their conversation and plots against Victor. Later, Victor is found beaten up. He tells Genevieve and Sister Celeste that he doesn’t want to go to the hospital in fear that his past will come pack to haunt him. Sister Celeste watches as Genevieve helps Victor with his hand. Genevieve and Sister Celeste try to get Victor to leave town for his own safety but he refuses.

Sharon tells Dr. Laurents she has a child that needs her and a company to run. He tells Sharon that he needs to follow protocol before he can release her. He exits as Daisy begs Sharon to tell the doctor who she really is. Sharon reluctantly admits that Daisy is telling the truth about who she really is. Dr. Laurents leaves as he tells a frustrated Daisy that he’ll speak to her during their session. Daisy tells Sharon that the doctors are trying to give her meds but she hasn’t been taking them. Daisy gets her fingerprints taken to confirm her identity and begs Sharon to tell Daniel that she is alive once Sharon is released. Daisy takes a bunch of pills with the hope of being sent to the hospital to escape.

Nick goes back to the office to see Victoria and updates her on the situation with Summer. They are both stunned when Sharon arrives and declares that she is back.  Ronan receives news that Daisy is alive!

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.

Courtesy/CBS

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

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.
