Emma continues to lash out at Greenlee but pretends to be nice when Bianca’s around. Greenlee confides in Bianca about the situation with Emma and admits that it’s taking a toll. Emma slips out of the house and goes to Scott and Madison’s; Madison calls Ryan and he comes to pick up his daughter. Emma wants to know why he couldn’t marry Madison. Ryan insists she must go home and apologize to Greenlee. In front of Ryan, a sweet Emma apologizes but she whispers something nasty to Greenlee. Greenlee says she knows every trick in the book and won’t let Emma push her away because she loves her. Madison questions Scott about his movie plans with Marissa and he gets annoyed JR told her about his history with Marissa. When Madison presses for more information, the two admit they care about each other. JR continues to try and win back Marissa. He brings up something from their past which almost leads to a kiss but Marissa pulls back. JR’s unhappy to learn that Marissa has plans for the movies with Scott. Bianca thanks JR for the contract he set for Reese and believes him when he says he still has feelings for Marissa.

Jake and Amanda get into an argument over Cara. They don’t have a chance to resolve anything as Jake gets a call from the hospital. Cara confides in Tad that all the talk about Trevor hurt because she was close to getting pregnant once and will likely never have a baby now. Cara admits to Tad that he might be the best friend she ever had. Kendall invites Griffin to Erica’s wedding, claiming she might need medical attention nearby but he’s given her a clean bill of health and she’s okay to go. Kendall informs Griffin that she is working with the probate lawyer and the sale of the casino should happen soon. Griffin expresses his worry to Tad that pushing the sale of the casino might leave Kendall as a target and he’d like Tad’s help in getting a meeting with the casino partners. When Cara comments that it’s obvious Griffin is connected to Kendall he gets defensive, saying he just wants to get the money so he can open more clinics. Ricky accepts Kendall’s invite to the wedding and she informs Bianca that she’s asked him since Griffin turned her down. Ricky tells Griffin that Kendall invited him to the wedding and Griffin claims he’s fine with that. Diana shows up after having followed Kendall and Ricky reams her out. He thought he made it clear they were done and insists he will make Kendall love him. Kendall lets Diana in after she claims her car’s broken down.

Scott videotapes Madison and she tells her baby that they’re lucky to have Scott in their lives. Later, when they show up for a checkup, Ryan’s there and asks if he and Greenlee can join. Madison agrees but Greenlee and Scott decide to wait outside. Scott tells Greenlee he isn’t worried about Ryan and Madison but its obvious Greenlee isn’t as confident. In the exam room Madison and Ryan share a moment as they hear their child’s heartbeat. Ryan tells Emma that it was him, not Greenlee, who set up the appointment with the psychologist and she decides to go and get it over with. Afterwards, Emma reveals that she told the doctor she doesn’t want Greenlee as a stepmom. Unaware of this, Greenlee feels relieved when she gets Emma to laugh while telling her about her baby sister’s exam. Griffin and Tad discuss the potential threats to Kendall and the need to look into the casino partners. Griffin downplays Tad’s comment that he’s her secret protector and promises to stay back until Tad gets the meeting with Diana. Griffin covers then abruptly leaves when Tad asks if he’s seen anything pertaining to the stolen drugs. Using a different name, Diana gains entrance into Kendall’s, claiming her car’s broken down. Luckily for Kendall, Ricky shows up and covers his surprise. On her way out, Diana warns Ricky that if he doesn’t take care of Kendall she will. Kendall’s shocked when she sees Diana’s credit card with her real name as opposed to the fake one she gave. Griffin covers his surprise when Kendall tells him what happened; he calls Brot to inform him the threat against Kendall is real. Unfortunately, Brot can’t offer much help since there is no substantial evidence. Griffin shows up at Kendall’s to watch over her but says he’s there to give her medical advice. In Diana’s hotel room Ricky kisses her passionately but he’s still upset she didn’t listen to his instructions. After he finds her knife and she says she would have used it on Kendall he starts to choke her. Marissa confides in Bianca that she feels a pull towards JR but is unsure why. Bianca says it’s because she’s helped him through a lot of tough times. JR asks Marissa to attend his two year anniversary of being sober at his AA meeting but she holds strong and says they are in the past and he must accept that. Later, JR witnesses from afar Scott putting his arm around Marissa. When Marissa notices Bianca and the bartender sharing looks she closes out her tab and hints that she should go and talk to Bianca. The bartender does but Bianca says she’s not ready for a relationship just yet.  Amanda’s come to see if Jake can get off work so they can head home and start on baby #2 but Jake doesn’t think now is the best time despite her protest that it will help them get past their tension. Ricky winds up killing Diana and now must deal with her body. Griffin watches over Kendall as she sleeps. She wants to know why he’s really there but before he can admit the real reason Ricky shows up and he says what he was going to tell her can wait. Griffin asks Ricky to look out for Kendall and quickly leaves. When Griffin walks back into his hotel room he finds a dead Diana in his bed. Kendall tells Ricky that the woman who showed up at her home was using a fake name. She googles Diana’s name and discovers she was one of the VPs of Zach’s casinos. Liza and David have sex and she asks him not to tell anyone but encourages him to prove to PVH that he can continue to save lives despite the fact they hate him. David passionately tells Angie he thinks he can help cure her blindness.

As Tad informs him of the drug investigation, Jesse gets a call about the dead body in Griffin’s room. Jesse goes to the station while Tad leaves to finds Cara; after informing her of what’s going on and they head down to the station together. Ryan shows up at Kendall’s and she fills him in on everything that’s been going on.  Ryan wonders why Ricky would tell her not to overreact about an intruder. Ricky goes to Griffin’s hotel room and questions cops about the crime scene. Initially they deflect until Ricky asks to perform the last rites. While doing so he whispers to Diana that he will never forget this. Griffin is unsuccessful in trying to revive Diana and when the cops/Brot show up he tries to explain to no avail. Down at the station Griffin tells them what he knows about Diana. Ryan and Kendall show up and when Kendall says that Diana worked for the casinos Griffin’s shocked. He explains what he’s been doing with his investigation and who Diana is. Kendall’s upset because she had no idea about this investigation and Griffin thinks someone might be setting him up. Kendall thinks if Zach was murdered that changes everything. Both Griffin and Kendall are even more surprised when Jesse says they found two tickets to Tahiti under Griffin and Diana’s name along with drugs and cash stashed in his hotel room. Clearly uncomfortable upon hearing that, Kendall admits that Griffin told her he was taking drugs from the hospital.

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.
