Erica tells Jack she needs to attend to some “business” and goes to see Caleb and Jackson watches from afar.  Krystal consoles Jack over the Erica situation. Krystal worries about Annie’s downward spiral and warns her to stay away from both Marissa and the bar.  JR reassures both Marissa and Krystal that he has the Annie situation under control; he’s called Dr. Burke from Oak Haven. JR is disturbed when he finds the stolen jewelry in Annie’s room. Kendall and Greenlee bond; Kendall offers up her house to Greenlee for the wedding but she says she’d rather have the wedding at Fusion.  Kendall, Greenlee & Ryan all toast to Kendall’s return to Fusion. After Ryan takes David to the rooftop mayhem ensues. Ryan threatens him and says he will be arrested for appearing to escape; Ryan’s got all areas covered and leaves.  David’s cuffed after Jesse finds him and despite insisting his innocence all evidence (a helicopter, Ryan’s alibi) points to a planned escape. With David “missing” from his room, Erica heads off to find Kendall after Jesse says David might want revenge on the person who shot him. When Marissa threatens to quit David insists Ryan set him up. David uses his one phone call to call Kendall down to the prison.  He brings up the photo of her trying to smother him with the pillow but Kendall doesn’t seem concerned. As she walks out Kendall collapses to the ground. Annie admits to JR that she staged the burglary which is the last straw for him. JR insists they can’t be together until unless she talks to someone. JR tells Tad that he won’t cut Annie loose just because she is “broken”.   JR returns Marissa’s stolen belongings, claiming he found them in pawn shop. Brot & Natalia each take measures to be together. When Brot is unsuccessful in getting fired, he resigns, but after Natalia tells the group she got a job with the Philly PD Jesse admits he stopped Brot’s letter from going through. Before visiting with David at the prison, Kendall shares an awkward moment with Ricky when she thinks he’s asking her out but both admit they just want a friendship.  The two make a date for dinner the following week. Jackson walks in on Erica and Caleb in an embrace and jumps to conclusions. Erica tells Jackson that he’s got the wrong idea and admits Kendall shot David and that’s why she’s been so close with Caleb lately.

Tensions run high between Erica and Jackson over their strained relationship as they deal with the fact Kendall is back in the hospital.  Jackson expresses his frustration with Erica for keeping things from him and she admits David knows that Kendall was the one to shoot him. Griffin informs Erica and Jackson that Kendall is developing an aneurysm. Cara becomes frustrated after Tad declines her offer of help on his investigation.  Knowing Jake was the one to put the kibosh on it, she asks him not to act differently towards her now that he knows the truth of her leukemia. Kendall barely survives her collapse and David is unlocked from his cell to help revive her. Madison’s pregnancy starts to show & Scott helps her to cover up her bump in front of Bianca. Madison drives Ryan to the hospital after learning about Kendall’s collapse and they share memories of their relationship.  Greenlee’s grateful Madison didn’t let Ryan get behind the wheel because he had been drinking at Krystal’s. Despite Ryan’s admission to Greenlee that they can get through anything she still holds back from telling him about Madison’s pregnancy.  JR wants to keep good ties with Marissa after the divorce and seemingly cut ties with Annie.  Marissa and JR agree to be good parents to AJ and remain friends. Annie gets worried JR’s breaking up with her when he says she just ruined everything and can’t take it anymore. Scott starts to take his relationship with Madison more serious than just a fling but when they’re by Kendall’s he notices the longing in her eyes towards Ryan.

Kendall’s friends and family try to convince her to get the surgery.  Erica encourages her not to give up and promises to be there to help her move on after it’s all over. Kendall overhears Ryan and David arguing outside her room and she flashes to a memory of shooting David. Griffin informs Bianca that Kendall could die during surgery. After Kendall reveals she was the one who shot David, Griffin leaves a message for Erica on Kendall’s behalf.  When Kendall doesn’t hear back she leaves to go and find her. After the cab driver drops her by the park Kendall’s hit with abdominal pain and collapses.  Luckily Griffin reaches Kendall on her cell and after she tells him what happened he along with Jake and Cara go find her.  As they’re on the way to the hospital they get into an accident with Annie. The Hubbard’s and Brot have a celebratory dinner for Natalia. Brot gives Natalia one of his Iraq medals for not running away from them and their love. Annie’s downward spiral starts to become unbearable. An exhausted JR reassures her that he loves her and suggests they both go and see Dr. Burke.  After JR is called away on business Colby shows up and gets Annie to admit that she was behind the burglary. Once Colby admits she taped the confession Annie handcuffs her to a chair and races home to make her appointment with Dr. Burke. As she’s rushing home she sees a hallucination of Marissa and winds up crashing her car into the ambulance carrying Kendall, Griffin, Jake and Cara.

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.
