Maura West, Maurice Benard
It's been a crazy couple of weeks on ABC's General Hospital! Femme fatale Ava Jerome (Maura West) was revealed to be the murderer of Connie Falconeri (Kelly Sullivan). Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) tried to kill A.J. Quartermaine (Sean Kanan) by shooting him point-blank in the chest. And Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) abandoned her husband, Patrick (Jason Thompson), and her little girl, Emma (Brooklyn Rae Silzer), to leave Port Charles and save the life of her old friend Jason, a controversial decision that has infuriated many GH fans. What's behind these big, bold, ballsy moves? TV Guide Magazine got some insight from the show's head writer Ron Carlivati.
Thorsten Kaye, Heather Tom
It's March Madness on CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful! Katie (Heather Tom) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) hit the sack. Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) hits the bottle. Dead Darla (Schae Harrison) returns as a ghost. And who knows what's going on with that crazy Aly (Ashlyn Pearce)? TV Guide Magazine went to exec producer-head writer Bradley Bell for all the dish.
Jon Lindstrom. Cady McClain
It's good to be Jon Lindstrom! The multi-talented fan fave, best known as Dr. Kevin Collins on ABC's General Hospital, has directed his first feature film, the psychological chiller How We Got Away With It, about an annual reunion of friends that goes horribly wrong. It hits cable VOD later this month and opens in theaters in New York and Los Angeles in April (check howwegotawaywithit.com for details). On top of that, the actor recently got hitched in a hush-hush ceremony to his longtime love Cady McClain — the iconic Dixie on All My Children and soon to be Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless. TV Guide Magazine had a gab session with Lindstrom to discuss it all!

To find out, TV Guide Magazine sat down with Thomas Scott, who joined the CSB soap exactly 35 years ago Thursday. She shared with us her favorite, wildest, most trashtastic Nikki moments and we have clips to go with them that you won't believe! Check 'em out below.
