Don Diamont, The Bold and the Beautiful

In one of the best scenes of any soap last week, Don Diamont didn't pull any punches when he ripped Katie and Wyatt's engagement to shreds. His shock and anger were just a small part of his explosive response. Deep down, he also felt betrayal and sadness at the loss of another son. - Mike Jubinville

Heather Tom, The Bold and the Beautiful

Heather Tom once again shows if you give her the material, she will deliver. Tom went from showing her screen partner (Darin Brooks) love and happiness with Katie's recent engagement, to heartbreak and anger opposite Don Diamont's Bill as she and Wyatt revealed their romance. Tom delivered a variety of emotions in just one 30-minute episode, showcasing what she can do when brought off the bench. Tom proves why she's a back-to-back Emmy-award winning actress who needs to be on screen more often instead of pitch hitting when needed. - Jillian Bowe

Joshua Morrow, The Young and the Restless

Joshua Morrow delivered subtle, yet stand-out performances this week on The Young and The Restless as Nick Newman. Nick struggled with the revelation that the boy he believed to be his son, Christian, is actually the biological son of his half brother Adam (Justin Hartley). From the moment Sharon (Sharon Case) spilled the proverbial beans about Christian, to her sitting with Nick in the hospital as he awaited the rushed DNA test results, Morrow was compelling. Nick's quiet intensity as he grieved what he already knew to be true, was heartbreaking. Once again Morrow's chemistry with Case was unquestionable. As I watched Morrow convey Nick's pain, I flashed back to Jacob Young's performance as JR Chandler during the iconic baby switch storyline involving Babe (Alexa Havins) and Bianca (Eden Riegel). Both fathers were heartbroken. Both actors delivered. Kudos to Morrow on his performances and for reminding me of another such story I hadn't thought of in a while. - Luke Kerr
