Colby and Damon break up. As Liza takes the initiative to be a better mother, Damon tells Tad that PV changed him and it will be hard to leave since there’s really no place like it. Liza tells Erica that she wants to push back the trial because she needs to be there for her daughter.  Erica presses Liza to drop the charges and Liza eventually agrees. Greenlee claims to understand why Ryan needs to go to CA and that there are times when they hold things back to protect one another. After meeting with the FAA guy, Ryan becomes suspicious of his claim that the valve malfunctioned. Greenlee encourages Ryan to forgive himself for Zach’s death. After meeting with Ryan, the FAA employee has a mysterious one way call where he says the case is closed and no one will be looking into it anymore. After Bianca questions Erica on why Caleb’s name isn’t on her wedding list, Kendall finds it odd she wouldn’t invite him. Opal, who’s been eavesdropping, asks Erica when she was going to tell her about the situation with Caleb. Kendall admits to Griffin that she is happy to know David is being transferred to another hospital. He encourages her to go back to sleeping in her and Zach’s bed to get some rest and improve her health. She thinks he might be right that it’s time to go back into her master bedroom. Erica tells an unconscious David that he can’t hurt her or her loved ones anymore. David opens his eyes.  David wakes from his coma and remembers that it was Kendall who shot him. Erica goes to see him and gives him “her version” of what happened but David says he knows it was Kendall, not her. Erica tells Jesse that David’s brain is warped from the coma. During this emotional time Erica leans on Caleb, not Jackson, which makes Jackson uneasy. Kendall is freaked out when she hears that David is awake and Erica tells Bianca that her sister must stay as far away as possible from David. Natalia and Brot’s relationship continues to flourish and they decide to go public. Amanda admits to Griffin that she pretended to be Cara so she could find out about her paperwork status. Griffin tells Cara she can’t be on a case if she isn’t’ objective. 

A stressed out Kendall confronts David who says he knows she tried to murder him.  Griffin defends Kendall against David. In trying to protect her daughter, Erica tells David that Kendall doesn’t remember shooting him. David makes it clear he won’t protect Kendall. When Jesse tries to question him, David says he’s too weak and would like his lawyer. Marissa realizes she must take charge in her relationship with David and makes the announcement that she is David’s lawyer. Jackson becomes upset as Erica grows closer to Caleb. Bianca alerts Erica and Jackson that Kendall isn’t in her room. Erica takes off and tells Jackson she doesn’t need him. As a result, Jackson finds himself confiding in Krystal how things between him and Erica have changed. Ryan proposes to Greenlee and she says yes.  

Krystal isn’t thrilled about Marissa’s decision to represent David but is unsuccessful in talking her out of it. Marissa warns David that he better not manipulate her or try and bend the rules. David says he couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. Ryan and Greenlee go public with their marriage plans. Both Jackson and Erica are happy for them but Erica is concerned how Kendall will take the news. When she does learn of their plans, Kendall acts like she’s fine but Ryan notices she’s hiding her true feelings. Using Kendall’s guilt as blackmail, David tells Erica to get Greenlee to come and see him. Greenlee and David talk about how much has changed between them. Erica goes to Caleb for help with David’s blackmail and Caleb agrees to help her with what she needs. Minister Torres encourages Kendall to get involved in something and suggest Habitat for Humanity. Griffin tells Cara that he’s not the guy for Kendall to reach out to and doesn’t want to get too personal with a patient. Kendall tries to cover her anxiety after Ryan explains his initial concern of foul play in Zach’s plane crash but covers that he’s sure there was none. Scott and Madison grow closer. She comforts him over his frustration at having to take a low-level job at the hospital but she thinks it’s great that he’s seizing an opportunity to rebuild himself.  Scott confronts Greenlee who says it was the best she could do. When Ryan sees Scott with Madison, Scott puts his arm around her.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
