Performer of the Week is Kin Shriner! (Scotty Baldwin, General Hospital)
Scotty had a busy week at General Hospital with Franco’s competency trial beginning. We loved seeing Scotty doing his best to reassure Elizabeth that her and Franco’s love would win out in the end. But it was his skills in the courtroom that lands him on the top of our list this week! The battle between Scotty and Martin Gray (Michael E. Knight) - two great actors - was any soap fans dream! His questioning of Kim’s motives and Frew’s memories was a turning point in the case as well! And the depth of emotion that he showed when Kevin gave his diagnosis on Franco’s competency was phenomenal! Kin proves that the vets still have the goods and need to be showcased like this more often!
Our Honorable Mention of the week is Thorsten Kaye! (Ridge Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful)
Thorsten Kaye gets our honorable mention this week for the epic battle between husband and wife we got at the end of the week on The Bold and the Beautiful! When forced to choose between his wife’s wishes and his son, he chose Thomas! Ridge and Brooke argued over Brooke demanding Thomas sign over Douglas to Hope and Liam. Brooke believes that this would be best for the child while Ridge believes the gesture is revenge for Thomas’ involvement with the baby swap. Ridge called out the Logan women on their hypocrisy and manipulation tactics and it was a beautiful thing to watch. I’d pay good money to watch Thorsten Kaye vs Katherine Kelly Lang any day! In the end, Ridge left with his son, grandson, and Brooke’s wedding ring.
