Though, it wasn’t as easy of a welcoming as she planned when Jake advised her to talk to Chad about his relationship with Gwen.

Tripp told Steve that he isn’t returning to medical school because he wants to finish his degree in Salem. Hope’s loved ones gathered around her as she continued her search for Ciara. Ciara, on the other hand, was fighting for her life as she tried to escape Vincent, even injecting him with whatever drug he was going to use on her.

Our Performers of the Week are:
The Young and the Restless’ Sharon Case!
Sharon Case is just phenomenal! Throughout Sharon’s cancer storyline she has given constant emotional, A+ work. This week was no different as Sharon faced the upsetting news that her cancer had spread after they weren’t able to remove it all. Faced with the knowledge that no matter how hard she tried she wasn’t in control of this she opted to do something she could control...helping Adam. Sharon is a character that fans have bonded with on this soap...we’re invested in her life. So, to see her pushing her own wellbeing aside is hard to watch. I guess that is part of Case’s brilliance. She makes you root for her character even when you are screaming in frustration about the story she is in.
General Hospital’s Lisa LoCicero!
I’m calling it now! Lisa LoCicero will win an Emmy next year! She has always been a great actress but the caliber of performance that she has delivered over the last couple of weeks has just been incredible...and in our humble opinion unmatched! Olivia was left devastated when Dante refused to see her after she had traveled all that way to visit him. She pleaded with him through the door, leaving us reaching for the tissues! Even my own father, who doesn’t watch soaps, was in the room commenting on how great of a scene it was!
