Things seem to be getting worse for Erica when a disembodied voice insists she tell Jackson that she doesn’t want to get married. After Jack gets the call from Erica he’s devastated while she’s shaken at having to break his heart. Caleb doesn’t believe what Erica’s told Jack (since in the call she claims it’s because of Caleb) and Opal admits the more she thinks about things the fishier they get. Krystal admits to Angie her feeling for Jack while Angie confesses Jesse hasn’t been himself lately. Marissa offers to help Bianca out with the Miranda situation since she is so stressed out over her mother. JR arrives with AJ and after he compliments her Marissa says she must deal with her feeling and isn’t going to freak out for AJ’s sake. JR thinks Marissa has been more open to him because of Bianca. Kendall talks with Griffin and tells him what’s happened with Erica. Ricky walks in to find Kendall upset and yells at Griffin, assuming he’s the cause. Jesse informs Griffin he is being charged with murder. Ricky yells at the guard he paid for botching up Griffin’s murder. Angie calls Jesse out on acting differently lately and he blames it on the case against Griffin and now Erica’s disappearance. Jesse confides in Brot that Angie can tell he’s not himself and decides he has to pull himself together to be a good father.

Jesse has trouble holding Lucy as he has flashes of his deceased baby. Tad questions him and thinks he’s pushing himself too far. David shows up at Angie’s to tell her about the extensive research regarding her blindness and she asks he stay and read it to her. Jesse kicks David out when he gets home and is upset Angie’s even listening to him. Bianca finds an emotional David in the park and reassures him that Marissa is doing well. Due to the fact the Miranda Center is receiving bad publicity as a result of what’s going on, Griffin decides he must resign. Cara’s upset Griffin’s going to lose his medical license and he tells Jake that whoever is after him made it personal. Jake is unhappy when Tad indirectly tells him to stay away from Cara, insisting he hasn’t done anything wrong. Kendall almost tells Griffin her suspicions about Ricky but changes her mind. Cara tells Kendall to stay away from her brother and takes a shot at Ricky for being so possessive. Kendall is alerted by her description of Ricky. Ricky makes plans for the two of them to start off fresh in a new city.

Tad finally allows Cara to help him with his investigation in to who shot her brother. They spot the man who stabbed Griffin at the bar at Krystal’s and when he leaves the two follow and split up for a better shot at catching him. Cara winds up being ambushed but Tad comes to her rescue. Jesse’s called in and the man is taken to the station. Griffin ID’s the guy as the one who stabbed him but the story’s turned around when the guy acts like he knows Griffin and says he did it to defend Diane. Greenlee seems to be making headway with Emma when she brings her down to Fusion but once she sees a photo of her mom, Emma gets upset and runs towards the elevator unaware that it’s dangerous. Once she’s freed Ryan insists her behavior stop immediately. While he has been trying to do things the “right way”, Scott finds that he isn’t getting the benefit of the doubt after he’s passed up for a job at the hospital. Thinking that honest work isn’t always the best way to go Scott calls JR to discuss opportunities for the both of them. While on a picnic with Ricky, Kendall wonders out loud what kind of person would set up Griffin. When Ricky discusses a conversation that Kendall had with Zach, she questions how he knew that, word for word.  Ricky quickly covers that she told him once after she had too much wine. Ryan and Ricky look through some of evidence of Diane and when Ricky finds a photo where he is clearly in the background he removes it. Needing some time alone, Kendall goes to the yacht where she accidentally discovers the original letter from Zach with the missing page that points the blame at the casino owners should something happen to him.

Erica tries to make a deal with her captor to let her go but gets no response. She tries to bust out but has no success with that either. Kendall tells Ryan that she might have proof Zach was murdered but cannot find Ricky’s name on the payment list for the Casino owners, but she does find Diane’s name. She reveals to Ryan that she suspects Ricky, but isn’t ready to involve the police just yet or falsely accuse anyone. Ricky overhears Tad and Cara talking about Griffin faking a ruptured spleen and he passes what he’s heard on to Liza who demands to see XRAY proof. Cara wants to fake the XRAY but Tad and Griffin make it clear she can’t otherwise she could be deported since it’s a felony. Griffin tells Liza that he is feeling better and she insists he go back to jail. Cara tells Kendall to stay away from her brother, worried he will wind up dead because of her. Kendall is able to convince Cara to help create a diversion from the police and tells Griffin she’s busting him out. Opal tries to reassure Jackson that Erica’s disappearance can be explained. Krystal shows up and Opal tells Caleb to spend more time with her because she is getting too cozy with Jack. Caleb’s not interested though especially since he still has hope things will work out with him and Erica. Krystal consoles Jack and says she is there for him, whenever he needs her.

Cara sets off the fire alarm in an effort to help Griffin escape. When Jesse takes Cara down to the station, Tad claims he was the one who set it off. Jesse thinks he’s lying but there’s nothing he can do about it. Cara breaks down that her brother is gone and Tad comforts her. Ricky tells Ryan that he wishes he could find a way to help Kendall let go of the casino owners/Zach but Ryan makes it clear that won’t happen since he and Kendall will never stop searching. Frankie worries that David might be trying to hurt Angie with his plan to cure her blindness. Angie tells Jesse that David is going to help her and he needs to give it a chance for her sake. Jesse agrees, but insists he’s keeping a close eye on David. After breaking him out of the hospital, Kendall tells Griffin her suspicions about Ricky. Ryan agrees to help them and they make plans to get Griffin out of the country. He doesn’t want to leave but they say their goodbyes. Before he goes Ryan assures Griffin that Kendall won’t be facing Ricky alone. Kendall heads home to prepare for her date with Ricky and finds him sitting on her sofa with the kids.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
