Jake’s not pleased to catch Amanda on the phone with David but soon lets his anger pass as she gives a heartfelt explanation of why she called.  Amanda begins researching the disease David claims to be dying of and fears Trevor could be suffering from it as well after discovering it could be hereditary.  Angie and Jake try to ease Amanda’s fears, saying they’ll run a DNA test on Trevor to learn more.  While eavesdropping on David and Greenlee, Gayle figures out that David isn’t Trevor’s father.  Erica and Ryan wake up in each other’s arms but are soon forced to face the world.  Randi and Frankie find Madison looking for Erica at Fusion and learn she needs a job.  Against her better judgment, Randi suggests that Madison could take an entry level job working with her at Fusion.  Randi can barely hide her bitterness when Erica hires Madison to be her personal assistant, a position that’s above Randi’s.  Ryan decides to help Erica run Fusion.  Madison walks in as Ryan and Erica are sharing a kiss.

THIS IS US: Milo Ventimiglia Delivers Heartbreaking Performance As Jack Grieves His Mother’s Death

Tuesday’s episode of This Is Us brought with it the one-man show that is Milo Ventimiglia (Jack). In it, Jack deals with his grief over the death if his mother, and his regret over not getting to know his mother and her life after she left his abusive father.  However, it was the final scene where the stoic Jack finally allows himself to feel the gravity of her loss that was a five-hankie tearjerker.

Milo spoke to TV Line where he shares how he got through the emotional final scene when Jack breaks down expressing: “Jack has to excuse himself from his wife and kids and go to the other room, and he’s in the other room, I remember Mandy just saying like, ‘Milo, what can I do for you, what do you need?’ And I was like, ‘Just let me know that you’re there, you know?’ But I think the man that Jack is, the product of the ’40s that he is, the man who went to war in the early ’70s, you know, he’s never going to show his emotion. So, knowing that his kids are in the other room and his wife is in there and all of that, he’d still keep his back to them, because he’d never want them to see it.”

The actor also speaks on Jack’s pivotal line at the end of the episode: “He gets to the point of realization that comes at the end of the episode when he says, ‘Rebecca, I don’t have a mom anymore.’ It’s all just very heavy and overwhelming, and even though Jack has been the stoic lion rock that he is in making sure that nobody else suffers or deals any discomfort or anything, you know, he’s not impervious to it. He’s going to experience things the same as any other person.  So, going back in a very childlike way and saying to his wife, ‘I don’t have a mom anymore, it’s pretty heartbreaking.”’

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) night of booze is coming back to bite her in so many ways! On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke’s daughter, Hope (Annika Noelle), confronts her mother after getting an earful from little Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) – that he saw grandma kissing Santa Claus AKA Deacon (Sean Kanan).

It all unravels when Douglas tells Hope that he saw Brooke kissing a man in a red hat. Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope think that Douglas may have Christmas Eve and New Years Eve confused when he saw the kiss.  However, Douglas insists it was New Year’s Eve, which stuns Hope.

Later, Hope surprises Brooke in her living room just as Brooke remembers New Year’s Eve and doing shots with Deacon. Hope then asks if she came clean about everything, because she and Liam had an interesting conversation with Douglas.

It is then that Brooke learns that Douglas came up to the house that night looking for his stuffed animal.  Hope shares that he saw Brooke through the window. She then exclaims: “Douglas says he saw you. He saw you kissing Santa Claus.”

Brooke is shocked! Hope remembers Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) was not home that night and asks her mom, “What happened?”

Will Brooke tell her Hope she was making out with her father? Will Brooke ever figure out what triggered her drinking, thanks to Sheila (Kimberlin Brown)? Comment below, but first check out the scene between Katherine Kelly Lang and Annika Noelle from today’s B&B.
