Kendall defends Erica spending the night with David and believes there’s an explanation as to why. Jane/Erica reassures Kendall that nothing is going on between her & David. Kendall suggests she call Jackson to reassure him of her love. Jane takes her advice and suggests to Jackson they go on a casual trip. At the Fusion office Kendall gives Madison some advice on how to present her line and agrees to talk to Greenlee about giving her another chance. Jake shares his frustration with Jesse over the fact David has taken over the hospital but won’t give his nemesis the satisfaction of quitting. When he wonders out loud how one would get away with killing someone Jesse tells Jake there are other ways to get back at David. Jesse feels David’s up to something and asks Jake to be his eyes and ears at the hospital. Jake wonders how Angie feels about all of this. Ryan also plans on finding out what David’s up to before anyone else gets hurt. He tells Jesse about Erica spending the night at David’s and also questions how Jesse could allow David to treat Angie. Jesse explains Angie wants her vision back. He’s doing his best to find out what David’s up to. Ryan updates Kendall on his conversation with Jesse and in talking to her realizes she misses Griffin. Ryan calls the airline and learns Griffin never got on the flight. Greenlee thinks it’s possible that Erica is having an affair with David and feels bad for Jackson. Ryan suggests they go on their honeymoon, and while Greenlee’s touched by the offer, she wants to stay in PV to find out what David is up to first.

Greenlee confronts David and Jackson intervenes and tells David to stay away from his daughter. David runs into Madison and perks up when she mentions Greenlee. She vents regarding Greenlee dismissing her line and David gives her some pointers on how to handle Greenlee. Madison thinks she’d need to be more like David and doesn’t think she can do that. She wonders if David is using her to get under Greenlee’s skin. JR and Amanda both want to know if she’s pregnant with his child. Marissa shows up and JR covers, claiming Amanda is helping him with paperwork. Marissa realizes Amanda looks sick and when Jake shows up and suggests they order some chili fries Amanda runs straight to the bathroom. Marissa tells JR he needs to stop stressing Amanda out about work, not realizing that she might be pregnant with JR’s baby. Marissa’s taken aback when JR suggests they have another baby. Jake takes Amanda to get checked out. Erica takes advantage of the fact her push knocked Jane unconscious and quickly comes up with an escape plan. She changes into Jane’s clothes, puts on her engagement ring and acts like Jane when Ben enters the room. Unfortunately, Jane wakes up and Erica’s busted when Jane trips her up with a question she has no clue the answer to. Erica tells Ben to get a tape recorder because she wants to begin another book about her life.

JR asks Marissa what’s going on. She was into being a couple, came back into his bed but now wants to take it slow. He’s confused while Marissa asks why he’s pushing her. JR wants to know why she doesn’t want to take their relationship to the next level. Before she can answer Bianca shows up and Marissa realizes she’s on a date. JR talks to Bianca who says that Marissa needs to feel wanted and appreciated. He takes her advice and tells Marissa that they should be together but not smother one another. JR admits he had some help in figuring out what she wants. Sienna, Bianca’s date, picks up on the vibe between the two girls and asks how long Marissa’s had a thing for her. She can tell Bianca feels the same and ends their date. JR texts Amanda to find out if she took the pregnancy test and Amanda says the test was negative. In an effort to prove she’s still hot Liza kisses Tad. She explains that she was fired and basically lost her job because she couldn’t get Jesse fired. Liza thinks “Tad the Cad” is now “Tad the Dad”. Tad says he won’t have sex with Liza because he’s a married man.  She goes off to prove she’s not dead yet. Caleb heard Liza got fired and offers her a job. At first Liza declines but later decides to accept. Jake brings Amanda to the hospital and Cara’s the doctor treating her. She wants Amanda to confide in her. Amanda and Jake learn she’s not pregnant, but after Jake leaves, Cara tells her the symptoms she’s having may be from HPV or cervical cancer. Amanda says Cara owes it to her to keep this news from Jake. Jake and Cara talk about her growing relationship with Tad but when Cara watches Jake with Amanda she starts to cry. Tad offers her a handkerchief and she notices lipstick on it. Tad explains what happened with Liza. Cara explains she was crying because she wants Jake and Amanda to be as happy as they are. She’s grateful for all he’s done for her. The two kiss and then Tad asks Cara for a divorce.

Tad tells Cara he wants more than gratitude from his relationship with Cara. He says he tried to fight it but he’s started to feel more for her and thinks things changed once she kissed him and started planning dates. Cara asks who said she didn’t want more. Tad asks if she has feelings for him or if her gratitude is forcing her to try and feel something for him. Ryan and Kendall interrupt Tad and Cara to say that Griffin didn’t get on the plan. Tad says he married Cara to keep her safe and it was a marriage in name only and that’s what it has to get back to. JR reveals to Marissa that Bianca is the one who’s been helping him all along. Scott tells JR that he is restoring the guest house so he can move in. He wants to be close to his family similar to how Adam and Stuart lived there together. Scott tells Marissa he thinks taking JR back would be a mistake. Marissa runs into Bianca at Krystal’s and learns the music box was Bianca’s idea. She wants to know why Bianca helped JR win her back and Bianca admits she did it because she couldn’t. Bianca thinks that for the sake of their friendship they should stay clear of each other for a while. Ryan explains to Kendall that he looked into the manifest because he thought Griffin could help him figure out David’s plan and that’s when he learned Griffin never got on the plane. Ryan wonders if all this has something to do with David. Ryan brings Kendall to her appointment with Griffin’s replacement and as she starts to remember moments with him she begins having heart palpitations. Kendall follows the nurse down the hall and freezes when she sees Griffin.

Bianca is shocked to hear Erica spent the night with David and is tired of her mother doing things to push Jackson away. Kendall tells Ryan that Bianca’s frustration has nothing to do with Erica. Mookie gets a job helping Scoot and tells Maya that he’s staying in PV. He admits he did it to be closer to her. Mookie sneaks up behind Maya and she flinches. Colby tells Frankie that Asher had to take more pain pills after hitting Mookie. Frankie is familiar with pain pill addiction and reminds Asher he can’t take more than prescribed. Asher’s mad at Colby for making it sound like he can’t control himself but back at the mansion he sneaks the bottle out of her purse and pops two pills.

Kendall asks what Griffin’s doing here. When he realizes she’s in a gown, Griffin sweeps Kendall off her feet and takes her back to her cubicle. He keeps things strictly professional and doesn’t reveal that he came back for her. Jake shows up and is thrilled to see Griffin and points out how they hadn’t even gotten a replacement for him yet. Cara’s happy to see her brother and thinks Kendall had something to do with his return. Cara loves her brother and wants him in her life and thinks that she’s not the only one who feels the same way. Ben starts rolling the tape for Erica to begin her new book. She’s calling it Erica Kane Uncensored. Erica finds this more emotionally difficult than she thought it would be. She talks about what a great mother Mona was and what a monster her father was. Even though her father abandoned her she still wants to rescue him. Ben starts to feel for Erica and behind his back she smiles because that’s the exact reaction she was hoping for. Ryan sneaks into David’s office and is caught by Angie. He admits he broke in to find some information on David’s hospital takeover and partnership with Erica. Angie agrees to get information on David’s plans as he treats her. David finds Jane clad in lingerie waiting in his room. He tries to leave for a meeting which upsets Jane and she accuses him of using her. Jane says if he turns his back on her she will destroy him. David puts on a show for Jane and claims he’s “falling” for her. Just as David kisses Jane passionately Jackson shows up, demanding to know what David did to Erica and how did he convince her to work with him all night. David says he thought she went home. After Jackson leaves Jane re-emerges and he suggests she go after him. Jane’s worried that if she’s found out she will go to jail. Kendall’s surprised when Griffin shows up at her house. He admits he came back to town for her.

THE BACHELORETTE: After Being Pissed Off About Hannah’s Naked Bungee Jumping with Garrett; Luke P. Survives Another Week

Here’s how to rankle the ire of Luke P.!  Tell him you went bungee jumping naked with “his girl” Hannah, the ‘Bachelorette’! That is just what Garrett told Luke P. on Monday’s installment of The Bachelorette, after his fearless stripped encounter with the girl all the men are trying to get that final rose from.

“We decide to bungee jump naked. Naked!” Garrett, told the other eight guys left in the reality-dating competition sending Luke P. into orbit. In a confessional Luke P. says, “Who would want to be naked with that guy? There is no way Hannah went bungee jumping naked with Garrett.” However, later in a Latvian group date to all, Hannah confirmed the naked bungee jumping escapade.

Later, Luke P told Hannah: “Have you ever been cheated on in your relationship? You know that feeling, your stomach turns inside out? It’s just twisted. I’m not gonna lie, I had that feeling this morning. We were about to get sent off for the group date and Garrett stated blurting out a whole bunch of stuff about what happened with you guys on the one-and-one and honestly, like it was hard for me to receive. And it’s just because I know that your body is a temple and honestly I’m just thinking of you holding him, bare-skinned and I’m just thinking in my mind it just pissed me off, it really frustrated me.”  He apparently terms his time with Hannah on the show as making them an “official couple” which pissed her off.

Shocked, Luke P. later tells the cameras in his confessional: “Her body is her temple and to expose it to anyone who isn’t her husband, that was a slap in my face. If she really is the one for me, which I believe she is, there’s a lot of answers that I need. I have to say something.”

Hannah talked to Luke P. before the rose ceremony and said: “I so appreciate you coming to me and having a real conversation and actually sharing concerns because I respect that a lot, but the conversation, it didn’t sit well with me. The issues were the language that you used to describe why you were upset. You felt like it was a slap in the face because you want to spend the rest of your life with me and then you said, ‘We all make boneheaded mistakes.’ Oh, there was one other thing that really hurt me that you said. You were talking about me meeting your family and you wanted to be able to feel confident in doing that and it was referring to the bungee jumping thing and I was like, what does that mean with me meeting your family? I told you it wasn’t a sexual thing at all and it wasn’t. But even if it was, at this point it doesn’t matter because you’re not my husband. You don’t own my body, you don’t own me. It’s my body.”  Luke P. couldn’t offer much of an explanation to her point of view, but then promised, “It will be worth it if you just please keep fighting.”

After her decision to skip the cocktail party and go straight to the rose ceremony, Hannah axed only Dylan and Dustin, meaning Jed, Mike, Connor, Peter, Garrett and Tyler C. were still in, and the last rose of the ceremony was given to, once again, Luke P. with a message from Hannah: “There’s goodness inside of you, and I see that.”

When host Chris Harrison could not understand why Hannah kept Luke P. in the running all she could say was “I’m either falling in love with Luke, or Luke is making me go crazy. I’m not sure which one.”  Fade to black another dramatic conclusion.

So, why do you think Hannah has not thrown Luke P. to the curb at this point?  Will he ultimately be the last man standing when all is said and done? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Is Named Police Commissioner In Port Charles; But They Say It’s Temporary

In a cool move, the powers-that-be at ABC’s General Hospital, had Laura (Genie Francis), the now mayor of Port Charles, name none other than former commish, Mac Scorpio (John J, York) as interim police commissioner while Jordan (Brian Nicole Henry) recovers from her kidney transplant and needs some time to recover from her medical ordeal.

Now while the show is making sure in story it is stated that Mac is the temporary person in charge of the PCPD, for many longtime fans of the series, they remember fondly when Mac held down the position for years.

In the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, York said on the surprise story turn: “I was thrilled when Frank Valentini (EP, GH) told me!” He added that he was advised there was great story coming up, and added, “That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to see what is going on.  However long it lasts, I’ll take whatever I can get and I’m really looking forward to being back in there.  There is a whole nee squad. a whole new group of people. I don’t even know who these cops are anymore!”

Shortly after being named commissioner on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Mac is already getting wind of some criminal activities and things that seem way off; from Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) new assignment with The Intruder, to his brother Robert (Tristan Rogers), being pushed out of the WSB and forced to retire, and much more.   Can Mac get the police department to solve some crimes ..> for once?

So, what do you think of John J. York getting to be back in action at the PCPD? Do you hope somehow the story turns and remains in the position even after Jordan is well, or are you hoping Jordan can get back into the swing of things fast and return to her job? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

‘Dynasty’ Season Two Finale: Double-Cross Upon Double-Cross; Two Bodies Dredged From The Water, Another Goes Into The Pool

On Friday night’s CW Dynasty season two finale, in true “soap opera on steroid” fashion; you needed a scorecard to check who was zoomin’ who! There was plenty of backstabbing, murderous intent, deceit and more, culminating in the re-wedding of Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal (Ana Brenda Contreras) with the lake and a pool set as a major backdrop on how viewers will be left wanting to know the outcome in this juicy cliffhanger.  But alas, folks! You will have to wait for the series upcoming third season to get all the answers.

And we just got to say, Elizabeth Gilles (Fallon) is a gem and the show would not be the same without her, but here’s how things were left for the Carringtons and company as we fade to black on the climatic final moments.

Sicko bad boy, Adam (Sam Underwood) has serious anger management issues.  When Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) learns the news that he has neurological disease, caused by the poison he ingested thanks to Adam, and that he will die, he puts a plan in motion.  He stages his own death. We believe Adam killed him, but in actuality it is revealed he was in cahoots with Dominique (Michael Michele).  After we see the flashback (as Jeff is heading to the Bahamas with the secret that he is dying), he knows they have Adam’s cuff-link planted at the scene of the crime that will do him in.  He says goodbye to his mother and sister and boards a plane.  But then, Dominique shows us that she went back and grabbed Adam’s cuff-link and is in cahoots with Blake.  She threw her own son under the bus!

Liam (Adam Huber) and Fallon have gotten oh-so-close, but not before Adam plants a letter on Fallon’s desk that Liam fathered a child … and later Fallon comes clean that during a drunken high school binge with a friend, the two got in an argument and the girl fell down a flight of stairs and the family covered it up.  Adam overheard the whole thing.  Next, Liam and Fallon go to the water in a row boat where Fallon proposes to him, with a valuable family ring from Liam’s family.  After Liam accepts the proposal, they make-out and the ring drops into the water.  Later, when Liam confronts Adam about the letter he knows he left for Fallon; Adam clubs Liam in the head and locks him up just outside the pool at the mansion.  Liam was about to expose Adam for all his lies and crimes.

Later, a shocked Fallon sees that her father and Cristal are getting re-married and their counter attack on Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) has worked.  Culhane is being arrested by the feds.  Fallon sold her company to Kirby (Maddison Brown) for $1 dollar to help reunite with her father in business, but since her father double-crossed her, she tells Kirby she wants her business back.  Kirby says she is not selling it back, because she tried to get Culhane to break up with her. Then, Blake demands Anders (Alan Dale) marry him and Cristal now, but Anders refuses.  He already made a deal with Sammy Jo (Rafael de La Fuente) to help run the hotel and is leaving Blake’s employ following his recent hospital stay and health scare.

All of a sudden, the divers who Adam hired to locate the MIA engagement ring, find two bodies in the water. Blake mutters that he knows who one of them is. Adam flashes back to a scene with Steven (James MacKay), where Steven tells him how the young girl’s death was covered up.  And yup, it was revealed that one of the bodies was the young girl that Fallon got into the drunken altercation with all those years ago.  The second boy has not been ID’d yet.  This is juxtaposed with Liam, who has made it out of lock-up by the pool.  He screams “Fallon” but he is so disoriented that he eventually falls into the pool face first, and all we can assume is that he has drowned.  But, will he be rescued?  Who will the second body turn out to be that was found in the lake? And … when will Adam and Alexis (Elizabeth Gilles) put their plan into motion? When we last saw Alexis a few episodes ago, we saw that she has a brand new face, identical to that of Fallon’s!  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of the season two finale of Dynasty? Comment below!
