GH BYTES: General Hospital kicked off the week by having Todd (Roger Howarth) pose shirtless in his hotel room, when he saw it was Carly (Laura Wright) knocking on his door. The scene was hilarious. Todd can be such a cad, and oh so manipulative. It turns out Todd bought the Port Charles’ paper and changed its name to The Sun. It also seems he’s the majority owner of Kate Howard’s (Kelly Sullivan) Crimson. I'm not sure I want to see Todd in scenes with Kate, but I like that he renamed the paper. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Todd and Carly are SO HOT! They need to jump in bed already!
Sam (Kelly Monaco) continued to mourn the loss of her child with her sisters and her mother at the cemetery. Thanks to Monaco, I'm feeling almost as bad for Sam as I did for Patrick (Jason Thompson) when Robin (Kimberly McCullough) "died". Meanwhile, Michael (Chad Duell) and Jason (Steve Burton) spent a bunch of time talking about Jason's emotions.
Anna (Finola Hughes) woke up in bed and discovered Luke (Anthony Geary) watching her.
Luke: “Well, that happened.”
Anna: “Yep, it did.”
Now that’s a ringing endorsement for their roll in the hay!
I’m not a fan of Luke with Anna, but if this results in Tracy (Jane Elliot) going on a rampage, I’m willing to give it time.
Heather (Robin Mattson) got it into her head that she wants to be a reporter. The prospect of Todd having to manage a loose cannon like Heather actually sounds like fun. I hope it happens!
Y&R BYTES: In the aftermath of their catfight, Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) found themselves stuck in the same Genoa City jail cell. It was hilarious when Victor (Eric Braeden) showed up and told them he wasn’t going to do a damn thing for either of them.
However, it was a bit ironic for Victor to tell Nikki and Sharon that they needed an attitude adjustment.
During their time in lockup, Sharon pulled the Cassie (Camryn Grimes) card on Nikki. Considering Cassie is the Newman family's sacred cow, there was no way for Nikki to trump Sharon's point.
Nikki: “Listen, this does not mean we are BFF's, or that I will ever approve of you and Victor. Got that?”
Nikki and Sharon need to take their comedy act on the road.
Paul’s (Doug Davidson) attempt to keep up with Ricky's (Peter Porte) schemes came up short once again. It must really suck to know your son is such a bad seed.
Daisy (Yvonne Zima) mysteriously overheard a conversation that will help Ricky in his plot against Phyllis (Michelle Stafford). This is a secret methodically calculating Phyllis has kept for years, but it is suddenly discovered by her lightweight, teen nemesis? Are The Young and the Restless writers penning these scripts with crayons?
DAYS BYTES: Victor (John Aniston) convinced Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) to stay, thank God! They really are two of DAYS’ ultimate gems.
Later, Maggie provided advice to Brady (Eric Martsolf), who is fighting his drug cravings. He decided to taken a drug test and prove to Madison (Sarah Brown) he’s clean. Unfortunately, he doesn’t know what is really going on. I think I need to be on drugs to get through this storyline.
Poor Nicole (Arianne Zucker), she doesn’t deserve to be saddled with Dr. Hairy Chest (Shawn Christian). Days of Our Lives just needs to get rid of the character.
All-in-all it was a fairly boring day in Salem.
B&B BYTES: Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Kim Matula) reveled in their pre-wedding joy, much to the chagrin of Liam’s big daddy Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). Learning the wedding was still a go, Bill sent in Deacon (Sean Kanan) to try and put a stop to the impending nuptials.
Hope discovered Deacon at her door and the two shared a tearful reunion. Boy I wish Deacon was staying on The Bold and the Beautiful longer! There is so much potential for him on B&B and Kanan is such a talented actor. I really need him to remain on my TV screen. Maybe General Hospital should snap him up to reprise his old role as AJ Quartermaine? Imagine him stirring things up in Port Charles once again. Plus, unlikel a couple of people on GH, Kanan's characters never appear constipated.
Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) pretty much threw in the towel over Liam. She decided she wouldn’t attend the wedding, then we watched all kinds of flashbacks. Raise your hands if you think Ms. Forrester has really given up?
