After hearing her son pronounced dead, Nina attacks Ronan who doesn’t defend himself. Paul stops her as Owen tells Meeks to place Ronan under rest and Ronan is caught off guard. Owen and Meeks tell Ronan that he is going down for Chance’s murder because it is his word against theirs. Nearby, Chloe, Heather and Nina are devastated over the loss of a man they all loved. Nina confronts Ronan who tells her that he is her son and he has known the truth for years, just as Chris arrives and tries to explain herself to Nina but Nina doesn’t want to hear any of it.  At Billy and Victoria’s, Billy asks Michael to go to the police station with him but Michael, suspecting that Victor had a hand in Victoria’s arrest says he can’t so Vance steps up and offers Billy his services. Billy and Vance leave, and Nikki tells Nick to go to Victoria while she deals with Victor. At the police station, Vance tells Victoria, Billy and Nick that Victoria is the only defendant named in the charges. Victoria can’t believe that Victor would do this to her but Nick and Billy are certain. Later, as Victoria is sent off to have her mug shot taken, Chloe comes in crying and Billy doubly freaked out thinking something happened to Delia. Chloe tells him that Chance is dead and Billy is stunned. At Gloworm, Jack tells Ashley that Victor may have done them a huge favor when he had Victoria arrested and now they may be able to get their hands on Beauty of Nature. Meanwhile, Nikki is furious when she confronts Victor about having Victoria arrested. Victor tells Nikki that Victoria will thank him one day for stopping the wedding but Nikki stuns him when she tells him that his plan failed and Victoria and Billy made it through their vows after all. Later, Nikki tells Victor that he was wrong about what Billy feels for their daughter and goes on to say that no one in their family will ever make the mistake of trusting him ever again. Meanwhile, Nick stops by Gloworm to tell everyone about Chance. Heather confronts Ronan about what really happened at the warehouse but he asks her if he should have died for Chance, saying it was self-defense. He asks her if she would died for him and Heather answers yes. Meanwhile, Nina rushes into the Chancellor estate and everyone sees her state and Paul is forced to tell them that Chance died while trying to break up a drug deal. Phillip asks Paul to let her go to Nina as the rest of the family tries to digest the news. Christine arrives to talk to Nina but Nina refuses to see her. Billy supports Chloe until she decides to move off to talk to Owen who tells Heather he is prosecuting Ronan himself. Victoria arrives and asks what is going on and Billy tells her about Chance. They try to lighten the mood by closing their vows with a kiss. Meanwhile, Christine tries to explain her actions to Paul but he tells her that Nina needed the truth from her and now it is too late. Billy finally comes to confront Victor about what he is doing to hurt Victoria but Victor tells Billy that one day when Delia tells him that she has fallen in love with a man like Billy that he won’t do everything in his power to stop it. Victor promises to continue to come after Billy as long as Victoria remains his wife. After the events of the day, Nick and Phyllis manage to come to an understanding about their relationship and Summer.  As the dirty cops celebrate Chance’s demise, Owen isn’t as thrilled while Ronan is still around. Meanwhile, Nina finally confronts Chris about keeping Ronan’s secret but when she realizes that Chris can’t say anything fix her pain she tells Chris to leave and rushes to Paul for comfort. Chris is heartbroken for her friend and her part in causing her pain.

Cane and Lily have their hands full with the twins but when Jill calls Cane with the news about Chance’s death, Cane tells her that he will be right there. Meanwhile, Christine encourages Heather to be there to support Nina. As Nina tries to deal with Chance’s death, Phillip tells her that someone from the military is there to see her. Later, Cane arrives at the mansion to give his condolences and while they are talking, Phillip urges Cane to stay away from Australia for his family’s sake as much as his own. Abby calls Jack and starts to panic thinking about what Victor will do to her after sending Victoria to jail just for daring to get married. Meanwhile, Victor tells his banker that he wants Abby’s trust dismantled by the end of the day. Billy picks Victoria up at the police station and Victoria tells him that she needs to face Victor alone, even after Billy tells her about his confrontation with Victor last night. Later, Victor promises Victoria that he will make the charges go away as long as she agrees to end her marriage to Billy. Meanwhile, Abby literally has a panic attack while meeting with Jack about going up against Victor but Jack manages to calm her down and gets her to agree to continue with the lawsuit.

Daniel stops by to check on Lily and the twins and they end up chatting about Abby and Cane and how unexpectedly great life is right now. Later, Daniel tries to make Abby see that Victor won’t back down just because a member of his family could end getting hurt in the cross-fire between him and Jack. When Owen and a bunch of cops show up at the Chancellor Mansion with a search warrant Nina refuses to let them go through Chance’s things, blaming him for Chance’s death. Owen tells Nina and Chance’s family that he is investigating Chance’s involvement in the drug ring and he and cops move to Chance’s room. Christine arrives and although Paul doesn’t want to see her, Phillip embraces her. Nina and Jill are crushed and furious as they watch the police rip through Chance’s things so callously. Victoria refuses to leave the man she loves and Victor shows her a dossier on Billy’s past but Victoria tells him she knows all about it and that Victor is no longer welcome in her life or the life of her children. Later, Jill goes to see Victor and tells him that she has lost Chance and she doesn’t want to lose Billy too and asks him if he really wants to risk losing his daughter and his grandchild for good. After Jill leaves, Victor makes a call and says that he was responsible for the bribe, not Victoria. Meanwhile, Victoria and Billy happily get their wedding band tattoos. Phillip doesn’t blame Chris because he understands what a burden secrets can be but tells her that she can’t go back and change things either and she can’t bring Chance back. Meanwhile, Nina battles with what to do about Chance’s burial. Cane tells Lily about Phillip trying to stay strong for his family and asks her about avoiding going to Australia for a while but lies to Lily about the real reason. However, Lily and Cane are unaware that there is someone watching them. Later, Heather stops by to see Nina, Paul and Phillip that she was reinstated and that she asked to prosecute Ronan herself. Nina says that she hopes Ronan goes to prison for the rest of his life. Owen comes in and tells them that he may have found a link to Ronan and Chance and the drug ring and they are all outraged. Meanwhile, Christine confronts Ronan. Victor is stunned when his banker tells him that Vance has an injunction barring Victor from dismantling Abby’s trust. Meanwhile, Abby tells Jack that she wants out of the lawsuit.

While getting ready for Chance’s wake Victoria gets a shocking phone call from Vance. At the ranch, Victor tells Nikki that he called the D.O.J. and told that he was responsible for the Japanese bribe. Nikki hopes that it isn’t too late to reunite their family. Meanwhile, Abby tells Jack that she can’t go up against Victor because Jack can’t guarantee they will win and Victor is ruthless. Later, Meggie continues to try and spike Nikki’s drinks. In front of Tucker, Neil and Sofia have yet another argument about work just as Malcolm arrives. Tucker tells Neil and Sofia that he has a project in New Orleans that he would like them to work on together, although it is clear they don’t get along. After Tucker leaves, Malcolm tells Neil that if he has a problem with him to address it with Malcolm and not to use Sofia again. Later, Sofia asks Malcolm to let her fight her own battles. Later, Sofia asks Neil for some middle ground and a chance to find solutions to problems he finds in her work before he takes it Tucker. Neil agrees and wonders if they might even one day be friends. Kevin tries to comfort a distraught Chloe over Chance’s death, pushing her to go to his wake. Meanwhile, Nina and Jill have a moment of closeness as Jill praises the way Nina raised Chance. At Chance’s wake, Billy and Victoria are touched when Jill welcomes Victoria to the family graciously. Chloe arrives with Kevin and makes a beeline for Delia when she sees her with Billy and Victoria and Chloe chastises them, snatching Delia out of Billy’s arms. Billy wonders what is going on with Chloe but Victoria understands that Chloe doesn’t want Delia getting attached to another person or trying to replace Chance. Kevin tells Chloe to take a moment but it’s clear that Chloe is on the verge of losing it. Victor and Nikki arrive at the Chancellor estate and Victor pulls Victoria aside, expecting her to be grateful for him stepping up with the D.O.J. but Victoria tells him too little too late. However, Abby plays her cards perfectly with Victor when she tells him that she dropped the lawsuit and she hopes that they can work it out between them, which doesn’t make Jack the least bit happy. Later, Jack tells Tucker that they lost Abby in their fight for B of N and Tucker warns Jack that he will lose Jabot if he doesn’t deliver. Nearby, Nina thanks a numb Chloe for everything she brought into Chance’s life and Kay notices that Nikki is jonsing for a drink. Victoria and Billy are both surprised when Tucker offers Victoria a job with him a McCall Industries. As everyone toasts to Chance, Kay is struck by a dizzy spell and everyone hovers around her concerned. Meanwhile, Kevin keeps pushing Chloe to vent her angry, to grieve her loss but she tells Kevin to shove it and leaves. Later, Nikki nearly takes a drink back at the ranch, but instead asks Meggie for more iced tea, unaware that the iced tea is spiked anyway.

On the day of Chance’s funeral, Kevin is surprised by how “together” Chloe seems to be. Meanwhile, Nina remembers the first time she held Chance and breaks down as Paul holds her. Her grief turns to anger as she searches for answers. Downstairs, it means a lot to Kay when both Brock and Tucker show up to support her. Later, Christine and Ronan have a cryptic conversation. Meanwhile, Sgt. Goldman arrives to escort Nina and Phillip to the church but Nina isn’t ready to bury her son. J.T. is furious when he overhears Victoria and Billy talking about their baby. Billy tells them that Victor had the charges dropped against Victoria but J.T. warns that they will never be free of Victor. Ashley is thrilled when Abby tells her that she dropped the lawsuit against Victor but Jack, on the other hand, tries to make Abby see that she needs to take what is hers before it is too late.

At the church, as everyone is arriving, Chloe walks in with Kevin and sees a distraught Heather and Chloe immediately goes on the attack. Paul and Kay step in to break up the fight and Kevin is forced to take Chloe outside. Phillip, Kay and Jill give very touching eulogies as they reminisce about the kind of man Chance was. Sgt. Goldman presents Nina with Chance’s American flag and Chance is given the proper Military service. As everyone is leaving and passing the casket they drop a rose. Nina is horrified when she sees that not only did Christine come to the funeral but Ronan is out of jail and she showed up as well. As everyone starts attacking Chris for bringing Ronan, Chris stops them, saying that she released him and Ronan flashes his F.B.I. and orders the other F.B.I. agents to arrest Owen, Meeks and the other dirty cops. Ronan tells them that Chance was wearing a wire and they have plenty of evidence on them to send them all to prison. Everyone else stands there shocked by this twist of fate. At the Chancellor estate, Tucker asks Neil if he worked things out with Malcolm and Sofia and Neil assures him that it won’t interfere with business again. Meanwhile, Nikki asks Victoria to try and reach out to Victor but Victoria refuses and when Jack approaches Nikki decides to leave. Jack asks Victoria if she has made any decisions about Tucker’s job offer with Jabot and Victoria tells him that she is still undecided. Nina is furious with Christine for turning her son’s funeral into a circus but Chris tries to explain, saying that this is what Chance wanted. Nina, however, isn’t interested in listening and she tells Chris to get away from Chance’s casket. Meanwhile, Kay suddenly collapses at the mansion when Tucker is asking her about her health.

In the chaos at the church, Chris tries to explain herself to the awaiting mob but Paul intervenes for Nina and Phillip and asks Chris to do what she has to but leave as soon as possible. Outside, Ronan asks Heather and Chloe to hear him out. Nearby, Jill gets a call from Murphy and tells Brock they need to get to the hospital because Kay collapsed. Ronan tells Chloe and Heather that this is what Chance wanted and he tried to protect Chance but in the end he failed. When it’s obvious that neither woman is going to forgive his actions he leaves. Chloe bites Heather’s head off when she tries to glorify Chance’s death. Later, Chris pleads with Paul and Nina to hear her out because there are things they need to know. At the hospital, Murphy and Nikki are relieved when Kay wakes up and is seemingly her old self but Murphy refuses to take any chances and won’t let Tucker in to see her when Murphy believes Tucker was arguing with her before she collapsed. Later, Nikki sits by a sleeping Kay and asks her to stay with them, telling her that she is struggling with her sobriety and she needs her best friend and sponsor now more than ever. Jill and Brock arrive and Jill is shaken to the core after everything she has lost recently. Heather confronts Owen at the police station and Owen tries to convince her that Ronan is lying but Heather won’t buy another word out of his mouth. Meanwhile, Kevin helps Chloe realize that everything Ronan did was for the case and that he may actually be a good guy. However, in the end, Chloe will always see him the man who killed Chance. Kay asks for some time alone with Murphy and when they finally get it she tells them they need to put her affairs in order, just in case. Kay asks Murphy to make sure that if it ever came down to it, he would never leave her on machines to prolong her life but Murphy is uncomfortable with the idea of pulling the plug and losing her. Meanwhile, Brock tells Tucker that he isn’t going to see Kay and Tucker doesn’t like the idea of being left out in the cold. Later, Jill and Nikki get into an argument over their competiveness regarding Kay and Nikki makes a thoughtless remark about Chance’s death and is immediately ashamed of herself and decides to leave. After agreeing to meet with Christine, Nina and Phillip are taken to a deserted road and Nina becomes impatient when it looks like Chris isn’t showing up. Phillip however sees car lights pull up and they brace themselves for whatever Chris has to tell them. Nina is none too happy, however, when Ronan is there with Chris but Nina and Phillip are blindsided when Chance steps out of the car with them. Meanwhile, Heather continues to beat herself up over trusting Owen. Later, Heather is caught off guard when Attorney General arrives and appoints her the interim District Attorney and Heather and Paul decide their first point of business is taking down Owen. Nina is overcome with relief that Chance is alive but is crushed again when they tell her that Chance is going into witness protection and this may be the last time she ever sees him. Nikki arrives home and goes straight to the liquor cabinet and decides to finally take a drink. Meanwhile, Kay’s doctor tells her that she can go home soon since she merely collapsed from dehydration and exhaustion.

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

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.
