GH BYTES: If you are a Jason (Steve Burton) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) fan then I suspect Thursday’s episode of General Hospital might have provided a bit of closure for your couple, in light of the fact Burton is leaving. Then again, it might have just rubbed salt in a wound. I have to admit it was well done. I particularly enjoyed seeing the Spixie I once loved fall back into their old dynamic. I think my favorite parts were the baby shower and the Lamaze class.
However, as a Liason fan, I kept demanding my TV to tell me where the “What if Jake Hadn’t Been Mowed Down by Luke (Anthony Geary)” episode is?
Robin Mattson’s return as Heather Webber was also a treat. How a character like Heather, with her many layers and nuances, could end up with a stick in the mud son like Steven Lars (Scott Reeves) is beyond me.
Thursday’s General Hospital ended with the best cliffhanger of the week, Heather on Tea’s (Florencia Lozano) doorstep.
Y&R BYTES: Billy (Billy Miller) told Genevieve (Genie Francis) he’d pay her to keep tabs on Victor (Eric Braeden). He then returned to Genoa City. Victoria (Amelia Heinle) is going to be pissed when she finds out Billy has been keeping her father’s location a secret. I wonder if Villy can survive such a betrayal?
Sharon (Sharon Case) decided to submit herself to observation, but when she arrived at the facility she discovered dear old Daisy (Yvonne Zima). This can’t bode well for Sharon.
Paul (Doug Davidson) learned that Ricky (Peter Porte) had sent important information to Heather (Jennifer Landon). He hurried to Heather’s, where she and Daniel (Michael Graziadei) had just finished bumping uglies.
DAYS BYTES: Brady (Eric Martsolf) called Kate (Lauren Koslow) to the Kiriakis mansion, where he revealed he is now her boss at Titan. When Brady found out Nick (Blake Berris) had been paroled, he rushed off to find Melanie (Molly Burnett). He ran into Maggie (Suzanne Rogers), who he ripped into. Later, back at the Kiriakis mansion, Brady told Maggie he thinks Nick could still be a major danger to Melanie.
The expression on Will’s (Chandler Massey) face when his grandmother Kate told him she had the perfect guy for him was hilarious. Don't you just love family members who want to be matchmakers? What wasn't nearly as much fun was Will flashing back to Sonny (Freddie Smith) kissing him while Kate was talking. Will and Sonny are good friends and need to stay that way.
T and Sonny faced off over Will yet again. T continued to blame Sonny for ruining his friendship with Will. After the two separated, Will arrived and noticed Sonny sitting by himself. However, instead of going over to his friend, he walked away.
Kate to Sami: “This is war, Sami and my guns are a lot bigger than yours. So prepare yourself because I am taking you down.”
I am all for more Kate vs. Sami. It has always been one of my favorite Days of our Lives hooks. Now that I think about it, DAYS appears to be headed in a direction I should find thoroughly enjoyable with more Kate vs. Sami and more Sami vs. Nicole (Arianne Zucker). Hopefully the execution lives up to the potential.
B&B BYTES: Stephanie (Susan Flannery) asked Ridge (Ronn Moss) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) if she could plan their latest wedding. She insisted it wouldn’t be a lot of work. She also told Brooke it would be a way for her to acknowledge Brooke as part of her family.
The best moments on The Bold and the Beautiful have always been the ones where Stephanie grudgingly acknowledges her feelings for Brooke. That scene on Thursday made me smile. Flannery will be missed.
Katie (Heather Tom) was suspicious of Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) motives. Nothing new to be seen there.
Liam (Scott Clifton) told Hope (Kim Matula) yet again how much he loved her. He said he’d say it as many times as it takes to convince her. All I could think was, “PLEASE STOP ALREADY!” Liam then asked Hope for one more chance.
At Forrester, Steffy wanted to know what Thomas (Adam Gregory) was doing kissing Hope at the press conference.
