At Gloworm, while trying to help Gloria with her new electronic registers, Kevin is blindsided when Gloria gives Kevin his divorce papers from Michael just as Chloe arrives with the new issue of RS. Overwhelmed and uncertain about what he wants, Kevin walks out on Gloria and Chloe, who are advising him to close the door on his marriage. Later, Chloe ends up consoling Jana when she breaks into tears over losing Kevin. Victoria prepares to tell Nikki the news about her and Billy’s new home. At the ranch, after a sleepless night, Nikki admits to Victor that she was suddenly hit with the urge to drink and wonders where it came from.

Meanwhile, Adam warns Skye about interfering with the suit against the Abbotts after what she did with the Newmans. Later, while waiting to meet with Skye, Jack hears that Victoria and Billy bought a house together from Gloria. When Skye arrives she tells Jack that she isn’t telling him anything about the lawsuit unless there is something in it for her. Meanwhile, Ashley confronts Adam who tries to play the victim but Ashley won’t have it and promises him that she will find out what Victor has on him and use it to nail him to the wall. Nikki isn’t sure of Victoria’s decision but Victoria tells her that because of Billy she is moving on with her life and enjoying it and she doesn’t care what Victor thinks anymore. Meanwhile, both Billy and Victor find a moment of humor as Billy explains why he has a tattoo of Victor’s name on his back instead of Victoria’s name. Later, Billy and Victoria aren’t sure if they should laugh or be wary when Victor sends a tattoo artist to the trailer to finish Billy’s tattoo. Once complete, Billy and Victoria admire the work before leaving to their new home. Skye tells Jack that she wants his contacts to invest in the Newman Fund before she says a word and Jack makes good immediately. Skye turns right around and tells Jack that she was the reason that Adam had to drop the lawsuit against Victor. Meanwhile, Meggie purposefully steers her conversation with Nikki towards alcohol, trying to continue to push Nikki to the edge. Later, Skye tells Adam about her meeting with Jack and threatens that if Adam doesn’t drop the suit against the Abbotts she will tell Jack everything.

Meggie spikes a smoothie with alcohol and gives it Nikki. Meanwhile, Victoria is stung by Victor’s seeming indifference to her news about her moving in with Billy. Later, Ashley vows to take everything from Adam that he took from her.

Jack is forced to cover with Ashley when she tells him that Abby is suing Victor for mismanagement of her trust and she tells him that Victor thinks Jack is behind it. Meanwhile, Victor has bigger problems than Abby when he realizes that Victoria and Billy are having a baby and getting married. Nikki tries to keep the peace but Victoria loses it when Victor says that the only reason that Billy is marrying her is to stick it to him.

Later, Chance doesn’t believe for a second that Ronan is his brother and tells Chloe that Ronan’s game end tonight.

Victor leaves to go deal with Abby and Nikki calls Victoria who tells Nikki that they are going to Vegas to get married and although disappointed, Nikki supports Victoria. Meanwhile, Victor goes to see Ashley and Jack to tell them about Billy and Victoria’s news and Jack is no more pleased about it than Victor.

Meanwhile, Victor gets a call that his plan was successful.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

General Hospital

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

Photo: ABC

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
