Jake and Tad throw a party for Angie and they give her and Jesse a memory book containing the story of their relationship. Angie’s overwhelmed and blurts out to her guests that she’s scared out of her mind. Jesse consoles his wife after she admits she’s afraid she made a mistake in her decision; the guests try and think of ways to help Angie. Randi deflects when Frankie brings up pregnancy but gives in to passion and the two make love in the elevator. Jake promises Amanda that everything is going to be ok between them. For their “auction date”, Cara brings Ricky to the hospital to cheer up some patients. She picks up on his barrage of questions regarding Griffin and defends her brother; she won’t tell him to back off Kendall. Ricky momentarily snaps but she holds her ground until Tad shows up and whisks her away. Kendall and Griffin go to the park on their date and as she plies him with wine and asks question after question. Ricky watches when Griffin drops Kendall back home. JR takes Marissa over to see Bianca so she can deliver some good news that Reese has agreed to joint custody. JR promises AJ that they will be a family again. After Colby invites Asher to sit and join her he assumes that she is the one who bought him for the auction date. When she says it really wasn’t her, Asher suggests they still have the date but Colby insists she can’t because he isn’t Damon. Caleb swears to his son he didn’t set up the date and Asher believes him. Alone, Colby tells her online viewers that she doesn’t want to risk loving again. Caleb admits his feelings to Erica but she claims to not feel the same and asks him to stop. Erica lashes out but Caleb says he will wait for her. After Erica interrupts a fun moment between Krystal and Jack, she warns Krystal that she’s wasting her time trying to move in on Jack. Erica says she wants to get married tonight. Jesse takes Angie to the Justice of the Peace Parlor where they got married and they envision how it used to be. Angie feels a contraction but claims she’s fine, until another pain hits and she realizes something is wrong.

Erica admits to Jack the reason why she wants to get married immediately, to prove to Caleb that she does love Jack and plus there’s no point in waiting and he agrees. Jackson plans a trip to St. Barts and tells Erica that once they get there they’ll get married. As the couple embrace, Erica ignores a call from Caleb. Bianca tells Erica that she wishes she could believe that she wants to be with Jack completely but she knows she’s trying to challenge Caleb. Caleb learns from Erica’s maid that she has gone off to get married. Jesse is unsuccessful in getting an ambulance as Angie continues to suffer contractions and it’s up to him to help deliver the baby. When Marissa comes over to the mansion to try and calm down AJ, she sees a contract for Reese that was drawn up by JR. He explains that he did it so Reese would speed up the custody case to work on a big project. In a phone conversation with Bianca, Marissa says that she doesn’t need to be talked out of spending more time with JR as she is having fun. After hanging up she returns to JR and AJ to play one more game which leaves AJ happy. Kendall admits to Greenlee the reason she can get close to Griffin is because she just needs a friend and he realizes that. Griffin tells Cara he had a great time with Kendall but defends that it wasn’t a date. When the two bump into each other at Confusion things seem a little awkward until Kendall says she is going to try and get him the money from Zach. Griffin covers that he’s thrilled and they both realize once he gets the money he will be able to leave town. Both hide their disappointment over the thought. Amanda assures Jake and Cara she is unaffected by their partnership and urges them to get to work.

Kendall notices a woman outside Griffin’s office when she shows up for her checkup and he claims she’s the one who bugged him to take her out to lunch. The two shares a bit of awkwardness and Kendall admits the doctor/patient relationship was a bit blurred but she doesn’t mind because she had a nice time with him. When a persistent Sara won’t leave Griffin alone, Kendall comes to his rescue. Ricky tells Kendall that he’s got tickets for them (including the boys) to go and see a game. He’s a bit unhappy but covers it up when Kendall says that she plans on expediting the sale of the casino. Ricky reveals to Diana that he is working on the next part of his plan to seduce Kendall but will handle her the way he wants. Amanda makes it clear to Cara she didn’t appreciate her early morning call and says she should remember which Martin she’s married to. Tad lightens Cara’s bad mood and gets her to laugh it off, just as Jake and Amanda seem to get on the same page about Cara infecting their personal life.

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.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
