Madison gives Ryan all the information she got from Emma’s phone call.  When she feels the baby kicking Madison almost tells Ryan the truth but decides against it. Greenlee justifies to Scott her reasons for not telling Ryan the truth. Ryan decides to follow a lead that Annie is staying at shelters. Greenlee worries when Ryan expresses his anger at Annie for keeping him uninformed regarding his child. After sharing with Erica the news that she and Reese are divorcing Bianca encourages her mom to make sure she loves Jackson before getting married. Jackson and Krystal continue growing closer as they work on the Cara case. Opal accidentally lets it slip about Erica and Caleb’s kiss but insists it meant nothing. Caleb encourages Asher to go with his gut and talk to Colby about Liza & Damon. Asher admits to Colby he knew the truth and she’s upset with him for keeping it from her. In order to deal with the stress in her life, Colby takes to her webcam. Kendall tells Griffin about what happened with the letter and Ricky insists that she might have just wanted to see more since she is grieving. Kendall questions why Ricky wants her to talk about Zach and dredge up old memories. Griffin tells Kendall that her tests results came back okay but suggests she talk to a therapist.  As Jake tries to deal with what Amanda’s done, he tells his wife she should have trusted him. Amanda wants to get to know Cara but Cara admits to feeling suffocated and just wants her old life back. In an effort to get to know Cara better, Tad shares his “secrets/stories” but when he asks about Jake she abruptly exits. Jake tells Tad why he fell in love with Cara. Caleb is surprised when Opal says Erica has not quit and she will be his new partner at Cortlandt. Jackson confronts Erica over not quitting Cortlandt and kissing Caleb. Erica calls Krystal out on fantasizing about being with Jackson but says it’s not going to happen. Jackson turns down Erica’s request to fire Krystal and doesn’t know how much he can trust her anymore. Asher helps Colby take down the video she made about Liza and Damon but unfortunately they’re too late as the video has gone viral.

Tad and Cara gather the family together as they try and make their fake marriage more “official”. Agent Kaye tells Tad and Cara he’d like to know more about their marriage. Krystal reams Tad for taking things so lightly and is worried about the kids finding out but agrees to help Tad cover to them.  Krystal tells Tad he’s giving up his love life and should worry about himself a little more. Despite Marissa’s suggestion, Bianca decides she will allow Reese custody of the kids during the summer and tells Marissa not to let her own personal past affect Bianca’s decisions. Diane tells Griffin she’s a writer and tries to find out more information about Zach and Kendall. Griffin tells Ricky that it’s his business on what’s best for Kendall and he should stay away. Griffin suggests to Kendall that it might be time to let the Zach memories go for now. Still uneasy over the letter from Zach, Kendall confides in Bianca that he used the word “sweetheart” but Zach always claimed to hate that word.

Griffin confides in Tad that after Cara & Jake divorced her leukemia returned.  Since he wants to eventually get back into the field, Griffin hopes that he can count on Tad to take care of his sister. Tad introduces himself to Leticia, Griffin and Cara’s mom who’s come to town and she questions why her daughter would marry the brother of her no good ex-husband.  Tad tries to convince his new “mother in-law” that Jake is Cara’s past and he is her future. Kendall overhears Griffin and Cara talking about the fake marriage and promises to keep the secret. Ryan questions David regarding Annie’s phone call and he claims she just needed money. Greenlee offers David a deal which he accepts; if he finds Emma she will help him get back his medical license. Madison gets another phone call from Emma who says she can’t say where she is because her mommy will be mad. Madison asks Emma to call her dad but the line gests disconnected. Preparing to go for her sonogram, Madison becomes emotional when Ryan shows up but luckily Scott arrives in the nick of time to go with her. Kendall continues to question why Zach would use the word sweetheart when he disliked it so much and Ricky tries to calm her down by reminding her that she’s just overeating. Convinced her memory loss is related to her pain meds Kendall wants Griffin to reduce them. Diane warns Ricky to find the evidence/documentation of Zach’s death today. Erica protests when Jackson decides to leave the house temporarily but after he comes to Bianca’s rescue she makes a plea for them to find their way back to each other. Bianca initially rejects Marissa’s advice and wants to talk to Reese in person about the kids/divorce but when a lawyer and nanny from France show up to take the children back to France for spring break Bianca says over her dead body. Bianca changes her mind and still wants Marissa to represent her. She will do whatever she needs to protect her and the kids. Griffin agrees to help Kendall figure out Zach’s message. When Kendall tells Ricky that the yacht was a special place for her and Zach he gets her to take him there. Leticia thinks Cara is making the same mistake she did with Jake, getting married too fast and says she’s there to take her home. Tad informs Griffin that his mom has come to town and thinks Cara could use some help. Leticia tells Griffin she plans to do whatever it takes to stop the wedding. Amanda watches from afar as Cara tries to give Jake back his ring as the memories of what it represents are too tough for her to deal with.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Trevor Donovan, Wayne Brady, Daniel Durant & Gabby Windey Impress Judges On ‘Elvis Night’

In the second episode of Dancing with the Stars new season exclusively on Disney+, it was ‘Elvis Night’ and the couples put on a show for the judges performing to songs by ‘The King of Rock and Roll.”

Before the stars and their pro partners hit the ballroom floor, hosts Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro, revealed that since dancer, Daniella Karagach tested positive for Covid-19 Sunday night.  Therefore, her celebrity partner Joseph Baena had to mask up through the evening and perform his planned routine with a temporarily replacement, Alexis Warr. As well, a few others in the cast who were noted to be in close proximity of Karagach, also wore masks during the live show and their performances.

Here’s a rundown of a few of the performances that wowed the judges for various reasons.

Trevor Donovan (ex-Days, 92010) and Emma Slater – The duo danced the Rumba to the Elvis Classic “Always on My Mind.” Donovan, who keeps letting us know in the pre-package that he is not comfortable as a dancer, did a complete 180 from opening night and delivered what the judges deemed a very sexy routine with Emma. The judges (Carrie Ann, Bruno, Len and Derek) were impressed by Trevor’s hip rotation, his arm extensions through the dance, and of course his abs! Derek Hough said it best in his feedback to Donovan following the routine, “Remember when you were scared of dance? You love dance.” Score: 30 out of 40

Wayne Brady (ex-The Bold and the Beautiful, Let’s Make a Deal) and Witney Carson –  Dancing the Jive to “Burning Love”, Brady, who is great at impersonations anyway, brought some of the Elvis moves, facial expressions and ticks to the routine. In the pre-package, Wayne revealed he has trouble with one of his knees. The performance was highly-entertaining given the choreography and closed the show.  The judges told Wayne to pace himself and protect his knees, because he is a wonderful dancer and they want to see him make it through the entire season. Score: 30 out of 40

Gabby Windey (The Bachelotette) and Val Chmerkovskiy – The dance duo took to the floor to perform a classic Viennese Waltz to “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” During the pre-package, Windey, who is also a former Denver Broncos cheerleader, felt she was ‘lost in space” doing so many twirls, but she clearly got it all under control and with Val by her side, her new fiancé Eric Schwer in the house. Val and Gabby delivered a stellar performance.  The ending of the routine was punctuated by Windey walking over to Schwer, who entered the edge of the dance floor, to give him a smooch. Score: 32 out of 40

Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart – Taking on Elvis’ “King Creole”, this dance duo performed the Jive.  It is amazing to witness from the pre-package to the actual performance, how Britt communicates with Daniel, who is deaf, and how Durant is able to feel the vibrations, watch Stewart’s face and inhabit a character so well, without barely any missteps. The most noticeable, and the most difficult challenge posed to Durant, is dancing in the side-by-side sections where precision/synch is always favored upon by the judges. In the DWTS audience were Durant’s CODA co-stars, Oscar Winners Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur, rooting hm on. It was an impressive performance! Of note: how much did we love Durant’s two moms showing up in rehearsal and dancing some moves from the routing with him! Score: 29 out of 40

WWE SMACKDOWN: Roman Reigns Officially Makes Sami Zayn ‘Honorary Uce’ In Heart-Stopping Moment

Talk about your soap opera and great performances!  Last Friday’s WWE Friday Night Smackdown on Fox featured what could go down as a classic opening segment involving The Head of the Table/WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns and tag-along member of the ‘Bloodline’, Sami Zayn.

With the entire Bloodline in the ring and present (The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, Reigns and honorary member, Zayn) it set the stage for a potentially dangerous situation for Zayn.  Even though Sami is a heel, the fans were in Zayn’s corner for this every step of the away, if you just listened to the pop from the crowd.

First, Reigns demanded for Solo Sikoa to acknowledge him, since the youngest members of the Usos is the new enforcer of the Bloodline. Solo did just that in short order, and as the group was preparing to make their ring exit, Zayn stopped The Bloodline as he wanted his chance to acknowledge Reigns as his Tribal Chief, too.  That prompted Reigns to question Zayn as to why he was up in their business and wearing the ‘Bloodline’ t-shirt.

Suddenly, it became apparent that Zayn was going to be set-up to be the victim of a beatdown by the family. The moments were so tense that you honestly could not have guessed which way this was going to go – but things were looking bleak for Sami.

Reigns verbally assaulted Zayn for hanging around and wearing ‘The Bloodline’s’ shirt. Roman ordered Zayn to take off the shirt as Zayn’s enemy number one, Jey Uso, demanded the same thing of him.  Next, Uso ripped the t-shirt off Zayn and the audience was scared for Sami.  However, Reigns instead presented Zayn with a new t-shirt making him officially an “Honorary Uce”.  For those who wondered, “uce” is the Samoan slang term for “brother”.  Touched and relieved, Zayn celebrated the moment with Jimmy Uso, Sikoa and then, even hugging Reigns, while Jey Uso looked on mad-as-all-get-out.

The story arc was played brilliantly by Reigns who can play disingenuous like nobody’s business, and Zayn, who can play drama and comedy as the “Bloodline” wannabe.

There are several story angles that could stem from this – one being the obvious – a feud between Jey Uso and Zayn- plus, just how long Sami will be included in the Bloodline, before it all goes south on him.

You can watch the segment below, and then a hilarious video posted on Twitter by Zane on Sunday to Kelly Clarkson’s “A Moment Like This.”

So, did you think the Bloodline was going to turn on Sami? What did you think of Zayn and Reigns work in the opening segment of WWE Friday Night Smackdown? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?
