Congrats to Scott Clifton (Liam, The Bold and the Beautiful) who was selected as the performer of the week...
Performer of the Week
Scott Clifton, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, showed up and showed off himself as Liam Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful this week. As we saw Clifton's gut-wrenching performance as Liam traveled to Rome to surprise his wife but instead found her kissing the one person who could destroy their marriage, our hearts were practically ripped to shreds. Liam returned to Los Angeles, and when Hope arrived home, Liam tested his wife. As Liam dragged the truth out of his wife, things became quite emotional.
Liam was becoming increasingly irritated by Hope's stumbling. Hope is confused, but gradually becomes more frightened, as she realizes Liam was in Rome and watched her kiss Thomas at the Colosseum. Liam, on the verge of exploding, pressed his wife for the truth. Hope started crying, but Liam yelled at her, “C’mon, say it with me. I … Kissed … Thomas”. Hope revealed the truth, crushing Liam's heart as he realized that his wife was the one who initiated the kiss on this man he despises more than anybody else on the planet. Clifton's acting NEVER declines. He is without a doubt one of the best actors in this genre. We could feel his anger and pain in his voice and posture at the same time. He sure has his Emmy reel locked for next year. He hit it out of the park yet again - congratulations, Clifton, on being named the performer of the week.
Let's not forget Annika Noelle who also broke our hearts this week as Hope had to face the consequences of her actions in Rome. Noelle has truly been an asset to the show - a true talent and this week she brought those raw emotions to the screen delivering one gutwrenching performance after the other.

RJ was happy to learn that his parents got back together, Brooke and Taylor confronted each other about Ridge. Steffy told Finn about what happened in Rome but didn't share that Liam kissed her.

The Young and the Restless
Sharon received a shocking package. Audra and Kyle hit the sheets. Summer struggled to come to terms with Kyle asking for a separation. She sought legal help from Michael. Michael reunited with Phyllis and later had a romantic date with Lauren. Sally cried in Nick's arms as she vented over the loss of her baby. Nick gave Adam an ultimatum.
