Although they have different goals, Ryan convinces Erica to team up with him to destroy David.  Greenlee’s honest with David when she admits to still loving Ryan but says David is the man she trusts.  In turn, David is honest with Greenlee when he admits Erica’s threatening to send him to prison unless he helps her oust Greenlee from Fusion.  Greenlee tells David they’ll work together to take Erica down.  Angie tells Annie she’s a partial match for JR and is his best hope for survival.  Annie keeps the news to herself as she struggles to decide what to do.  JR regains consciousness just long enough to angrily order Annie out of his room as she stands over him, knowing she could be the only one who could save his life.  Brooke tries to comfort Adam.  Colby is bolstered by Damon’s words of encouragement.  Ryan brings Liza onboard to help him and Erica get the goods on David.  Erica, Liza and Ryan have their work cut out for them convincing a nervous Gayle to go through with their plan.  Gayle tells Ryan and Liza that David bribed a coroner to switch Greenlee’s DNA with someone else’s after the accident but Liza explains that without the man’s name, they still don’t have a case.  Angie stands up to David when he tries to blackmail her again.  The pain in Frankie’s hand grows worse and he pops a pill, which David witnesses.  Greenlee and Erica go toe-to-toe at Fusion with each woman refusing to back down.  Greenlee, however, realizes she went too far with one of her digs and suggests she and Erica need to find a way to work together.  Tad finds Damon sleeping on a gurney at the hospital because he had nowhere else to go.  Damon tells Tad he’s estranged from his father and doesn’t want to burden his mother.  Seeing a lot of himself in Damon, Tad offers to let him stay at his place for a while in exchange for doing some odd jobs around the house. Annie barely hides her jealousy when she witnesses the closeness between Brooke and Adam.  With her own selfish motives at the forefront, Annie finally tells Adam she’s a partial match for JR.  Dixie’s spirit appears at JR’s bedside.  Adam isn’t thrilled when Liza gives Marissa the papers finalizing her adoption of AJ.  Gayle answers her phone to David, who lays it on thick as he claims to still have feelings for her.  With her resolve weakened, Gayle tells David where she is.  David, however, only finds Ryan when he arrives at the turret room after getting the hotel’s location from Greenlee as Jake has already moved Gayle to his loft.  Amanda and Gayle find common ground over having been victimized by David.  Opal admits to Tad she might have misjudged Damon when she sees how good he is with Kathy and Jenny. Annie’s thrilled by Adam’s gratitude when she tells him she’s a partial donor match for JR and puts on a show of wanting to do whatever she can to save his life.  Knowing JR would never accept her being his donor, Annie leads the rest of the family to believe she’s going to a spa for a few days instead of telling them she’s checking into the hospital for the procedure.  Dixie appears before JR and takes him to her version of heaven, which turns out to be Pigeon Hollow.  Jake, Ryan, Gayle and Erica put their plan against David in motion, with help from Amanda and Natalia.  When David refuses to sign a formal confession and reveal the name of the coroner he bribed, Gayle threatens to shoot Erica.

JR spends time with Dixie and Stuart in heaven and would be content to stay there but Dixie urges him to reconsider and fight for his future.  As she’s about to leave for the hospital, Annie’s unsettled when she learns Adam invited Brooke to stay at the mansion.  Annie has a nightmare that Adam’s leaving her for Brooke as the procedure gets underway and bolts awake.  David falls into Ryan’s trap when it appears as though Gayle shot Erica.  Greenlee fakes injuring her back in order to give David the chance to make his getaway.  Greenlee rips into Ryan, who remains unrepentant.  Erica’s shaken to find David waiting for her when she returns home.  Liza’s concerned over Colby’s growing closeness with Damon.  Krystal reaches out to Tad.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.
