Bad karma seems to be all around Jackson & Erica but they decide to ignore it. After Asher smashes the computer of some guy hitting on Colby, he’s taken down to the station. With some “help” from Caleb the kids chose not to press charges against Asher. Asher figures out that even though Caleb wasn’t invited to the wedding he was planning on going down to St. Bart’s to tell Erica how he feels. Kendall explains about the drugs to Jesse and Griffin requests a lawyer. Griffin tells Kendall that he never trusted anyone with something so personal and realizes now that doing so was a mistake. Kendall opens up to Ricky and hopes he will be able to help her figure things out. Playing the part wonderfully, Ricky calms her down and says not to worry; it’s his personal mission to make sure she relaxes for Erica’s wedding. Griffin tells Jesse that whoever set him up has done a great job since he’s got everyone fooled.  Maya wants a job at the Chandler mansion. JR tells her that once she gets herself checked out (since she just passed out) he will hire her. Maya meets with Frankie and tells him that she recently gave birth but had to give the baby away. She gets a clean bill of health and JR says she can start the next morning. Asher denies to JR that he wanted Maya to get a job at the mansion so he could hook up with her. Iris comes down hard on Jesse and insists he treat Griffin like a normal suspect. Angie encourages Jesse not to quit his job. Jesse says he wants to stay home just a little longer, claiming he wants to be with his daughter and the woman he loves.   Jackson thanks Ricky for all his help and says he feels like Ricky’s already part of the family. Kendall encourages Erica to talk to Ricky when she notices her mother’s reservations about the wedding. Caleb leaves Erica a message, claiming he needs to talk to her and will be arriving shortly. Erica deletes Caleb’s message after only listening to it briefly and tells Jack she can’t wait for their big day.

In an effort to get his family back together, JR gives Marissa the chip from the AA meeting since he couldn’t have been sober without her and she tells him that Reese agreed to full custody. Krystal’s upset when Jackson tells her the wedding is still on and admits to Tad that she does have feelings for Jack. Marissa asks Krystal about the wedding location and invites her to travel down to St. Bart’s to share the good news with Bianca and enjoy themselves. Caleb declares his love and asks Erica to take a chance with him. Cara ignores Griffin’s request for her to stay away from the bail hearing because of the danger and insists she will stand by him. He then asks Tad to keep Cara away from helping find out who framed him because it’s dangerous and Tad agrees. The bail hearing doesn’t go well and Griffin continues to worry about Kendall. Ricky works to get Kendall’s mind off Griffin. Ricky admits to Jackson that he has feelings for Kendall. Ricky gets a call that Griffin’s bail was denied and tells the mysterious person on the other line to kill Griffin in his jail cell.  Caleb makes his case to Erica on why she should go with him, and then waits at the airport hoping she will show. A torn Erica remembers times between her and Caleb and her and Jackson. Erica arrives for the rehearsal and sees Jack at the altar but before she can do anything someone puts a cloth over her mouth and she passes out. No one sees what happened and when she doesn’t show Kendall and Bianca go off looking for her. Opal tells Jack she might not have showed up because of Caleb. The tension between Emma and Greenlee continues as Emma decides she no longer wants to go to the ocean now that she hears Greenlee is going too. Jack advises his daughter not to give up on Emma. Ricky tells Kendall that Griffin wouldn’t have been denied bail if there wasn’t a strong case against him and assures her that she wasn’t wrong for ratting him out. Tad questions Liza on the real reason she won’t help him with an appeal for Griffin. Griffin is stabbed in the back and Cara watches as he collapses. Bianca’s grateful Marissa came to St. Bart’s to tell her the good news about Reese. Marissa admits that she kissed JR but doesn’t want to have feelings for him.

Jack thinks Erica was captured and goes off to look for her. Both Kendall and Bianca defend their mother and know she wouldn’t run off without a reason. When arriving at Krystal’s, Jackson sees Caleb who claims he doesn’t know where Erica is since he assumed she didn’t chose him when she didn’t show up at the airport. Kendall and Greenlee argue over the situation with their parents. Ricky consoles Kendall when she confides that maybe Greenlee was right that she gave up on Greenlee when she returned to town, maybe she’s doing the same thing to Griffin. Upon learning that Erica is not with Caleb, Kendall worries that the casino owners might have something to do with her disappearance. Kendall makes the decision to go back to PV to talk to Griffin after learning he was stabbed. Ricky will go with her while Bianca plans to stay behind in case Erica shows up. As Greenlee talks to Ryan about Erica being an evil stepmother, Emma claims now she knows how she feels. Erica is being held against her will and demands to know who kidnapped her. As Jake and Cara work to help Griffin, Amanda notices the closeness between them. Amanda shares her frustration about Jake and Cara with Tad and while he denies her paranoia, it’s obvious he’s a little bit unnerved as well. Amanda tells Jake the Castillo’s might get him into trouble.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?

THIS IS US Fall Finale Delivers Shocking Twists

In the final moments of the season 3 fall finale of This Is Us, viewers were given several jaw-dropping moments befitting of this top-rated drama.  Along the Pearson family journey, back in time, present-day and flash-forward, fans of the series discovered: that Jack’s ‘believed to be dead’, brother, Nicky is actually very much alive.

In a key moment flashing back to the Vietnam war,  Jack finds his brother (who is stoned yet again) sitting on the pier and pretending to shoot Vietnamese villagers with his hand.  Nicky sadly informs Jack that he is not going to leave drugs behind again and clean up this act.  He announces, “I see it all when I’m clean,” and adds, “I’m not gonna complete the mission.”

At the end of that day, Jack can’t find Nicky.  Suddenly, there’s blast from the water, where it appears a boat has exploded, and one of the soldiers says there was a guy in it. Jack rushes into the river and swims toward the wreckage.  We don’t see what happens next, but the belief is that Nicky died in the explosion.

Kevin, who has been in Vietnam trying to learn what happened to Jack and Nicky in the war and about the mysterious woman in the photograph, feels he has zero answers to what happened during the war.   As he and Zoe prepare to leave, Kevin’s tour guide mentions that he’d searched an online database of the Vietnam War Memorial for Nicholas Pearson, but came up short.  The guide says Nicky didn’t die in the war.

Next, the show cuts to a bespectacled man (Griffin Dunne, who now takes over the role) living in an a trailer home. There is a piece of mail on his table addressed to Nicholas Pearson, 2125 Songbird Rd., Bradford, PA 16701.  This would mean that NIcky has lived there for a long time – and a three-hour drive from  Pittsburgh, where Jack and his family lived and were raised!

In other plot developments, the all-important  …Who is “Her?” flash-forward mystery was answered and we learn it is Rebecca.  She is still alive, and we see Beth in present day without her wedding ring to Randall, and seemingly running a ballet studio, getting set to meet up with Randall and adult Tess.  In a key moment Beth tells her employee: “We’re all going to see Randall’s mother .., oh, did you bring the Pin the Tail on the Donkey from the office? I promised I bring it.”  The Pearson Pin the Tail on the Donkey game has been a through-line for the years with the Big Three.

The fall finale gave a look into the future that Randall and Beth’s marriage may not have survived and it could have started with the fact that Randall would not drop out of the political race he was in, even after promising Beth he would, if things were not looking good for him as a candidate.  We also learn that Tess like girls and sorta came out to Randall and Beth, but did to her grandmother, Rebecca.

And, Toby and Kate learned that they are having a boy after cutting the cake to reveal its gender.

This Is Us EP, Dan Fogelman told EW.com about what to look for in the second half of the season when the show returns with all-new episodes starting on January 13th: “Now, it’s time — for a little while, and we will catch little glimpses — to focus on the present-day storylines that help you get there. There are many questions. Where are Kate and Toby in that period? Where is their relationship? Do they have children? Has Kevin figured out his love life? If so, with whom? Have Randall and Beth made it through as we hope Randall and Beth make it through? What has come of their respective careers? And what kind of shape or state is Rebecca in when we’re meeting her and they’re all going to visit her? In order to get to the future and to get more answers there, you need a little bit more present story in the back half of the season. So, I would say that should be the focus right now.”

Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) are late to Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding, after they decide to undress (after they get dressed to the nines for the nuptials) and have sex.  After they make love, Griffin gets a call from Monica (Leslie Charleson) saying that the boards results are in as to if he has been reinstated at the hospital.

Curtis and Jordan are now getting ready to say their “I do’s” when the minister asks if there is anyone that has just cause that the duo should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Cue, Stella (Vernee Watson) who walks in looking very unhappy.  Will she unravel the wedding … or sit down and be a part of the celebration after getting some words of wisdom from Mike (Max Gail)?
