Jesse lets JR off to deal with “internal issues” but makes him promise that he will give a statement. Annie has reached her final breaking point. She smashes a gas pipe and locks Marissa in the attic.  When JR brings up her going to Oak Haven Annie comes clean about locking up Marissa. Marissa struggles to free herself and eventually passes out.  JR knocks on the door and tries to save her. Ryan is shocked to learn Madison is pregnant and Scott covers by saying the child is his.  Ryan tells Greenlee he is fine, he just wants to go on with the wedding and by day’s end they are pronounced husband and wife. Scott covers and acts surprised when Madison tells him that Greenlee knew she was pregnant.  Madison admits she is glad to no longer have to hide her pregnancy. JR rescues Marissa from the attic and when they search Annie’s room at the Yacht Club, Marissa realizes that JR was staying there with her.  He admits to a relationship with Annie and she realizes the lengths he went to in order to get custody.  Marissa’s sick over the fact she believed in him. Annie convinces Emma to leave the wedding with her and claims they are going on an adventure.  David helps her get away and says he will take care of everything.  Ryan freaks out when he realizes his daughter is missing and demands JR tell him where Annie went. Bianca admits to Erica the reason she is pushing her to do something about Jackson before it’s too late is because Reese decided not to get on the plane and come to PV. Erica sees Jackson and Krystal about to share a piece of cake and points out that maybe he didn’t miss her as much as she thought. Liza tries to avoid having a drink with David on Valentine’s Day; he tells her that he’s turned over a new leaf and is no longer holding onto people who don’t love him. Asher tries to pursue Colby but she makes it difficult. Colby approaches Liza about prosecuting Annie and tells her mother that she’s going to see Damon.  Asher overhears and thinks it’s a bad idea.  Liza tells Asher she’s learned to let Colby make her own decisions and thinks this one will fade.

After getting some relationship advice from Kendall, Bianca calls Reese to tell her everything.  She leaves a message and decides if she doesn’t hear back in 24 hours then she knows it’s really over. Cara confronts Griffin about his feelings for Kendall. Griffin tells Kendall to forget about the secret he told her about sending drugs oversees and to just concentrate on recovering. Insecure over Cara and Jake, Amanda questions Jake on what he felt when his ex admitted she still loved him.  Jake reassures Amanda that he only loves her. Cara refuses to take the wedding ring off her neck after Amanda asks her to, claiming it got her through tough times and Amanda’s just going to have to accept that Jake loved another woman. In the hopes of getting closer to his son, Caleb asks Asher to move in with him and out of the Chandler mansion. Asher doesn’t want to leave JR especially after he helped him when needed it most and now he wants to return the favor; JR is family to him. JR tries to apologize to Marissa for everything but she wants him to leave her alone.  Asher offers JR his support. Ryan listens to a message from Annie and Emma and Greenlee comforts her husband who is beside himself. As he tries to deal with Emma’s disappearance, Ryan blames those close to Annie for turning a blind eye to her craziness. Along with Jesse they find Marissa’s car near the woods which Annie took and now abandoned.  After getting a call from Opal about Spike’s concern for his sister, Ryan reassures the boy that Emma has gone on an adventure. Tad informs Jake of the danger Cara faces if she goes back to Doctors without Borders. Amanda calls the immigration department to report possible fraud on Cara’s passport.

Both Griffin and Ricky try to establish a relationship with Kendall while trying to knock down the other.  Ricky consoles Kendall about Emma and they share a kiss. Scott and Madison discuss whether or not he will maintain the lie that he is the father of her baby. Greenlee is grateful to Scott for covering in front of Ryan and he admits that he’s happy to help Madison since he thinks highly of her. In an effort to protect Cara from the dangerous warlords, Tad sets a fake funeral in motion. Both Griffin and Cara agree to the idea and Cara thanks Tad for trying to help her. Amanda admits to Jake that she was upset at Cara for wearing the ring but believes in their love.  After Tad tells Amanda about the funeral plan she tries to tell the USCIS that the passport fraud was a mistake but it’s too late, Cara is taken away by two men in suits which Amanda witnesses from afar. Ricky admits his feelings to Kendall and then insinuates Griffin is keeping her in the hospital longer than necessary. In the park, Diane tells Ricky that he was sent to PV to find out the evidence Zach had on the casino/mob situation not play “footsies” with his wife.  She makes it clear that any risk is too much and makes a veiled threat against Kendall which Ricky will have to implement if the evidence is not found.  Just as Griffin’s about to open up to Kendall she asks him if she can go home already. Ryan continues to look for Emma and combs through security footage with Greenlee by his side.  Jesse gives Ryan a photo of David talking to Annie before she fled. Kendall consoles Bianca when she says that she and Reese are divorcing. Marissa says she will be Bianca’s lawyer but going off her own experience warns her to be prepared for anything from Reese regarding the children.

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.
