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.

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

THIS IS US Fall Finale Delivers Shocking Twists

In the final moments of the season 3 fall finale of This Is Us, viewers were given several jaw-dropping moments befitting of this top-rated drama.  Along the Pearson family journey, back in time, present-day and flash-forward, fans of the series discovered: that Jack’s ‘believed to be dead’, brother, Nicky is actually very much alive.

In a key moment flashing back to the Vietnam war,  Jack finds his brother (who is stoned yet again) sitting on the pier and pretending to shoot Vietnamese villagers with his hand.  Nicky sadly informs Jack that he is not going to leave drugs behind again and clean up this act.  He announces, “I see it all when I’m clean,” and adds, “I’m not gonna complete the mission.”

At the end of that day, Jack can’t find Nicky.  Suddenly, there’s blast from the water, where it appears a boat has exploded, and one of the soldiers says there was a guy in it. Jack rushes into the river and swims toward the wreckage.  We don’t see what happens next, but the belief is that Nicky died in the explosion.

Kevin, who has been in Vietnam trying to learn what happened to Jack and Nicky in the war and about the mysterious woman in the photograph, feels he has zero answers to what happened during the war.   As he and Zoe prepare to leave, Kevin’s tour guide mentions that he’d searched an online database of the Vietnam War Memorial for Nicholas Pearson, but came up short.  The guide says Nicky didn’t die in the war.

Next, the show cuts to a bespectacled man (Griffin Dunne, who now takes over the role) living in an a trailer home. There is a piece of mail on his table addressed to Nicholas Pearson, 2125 Songbird Rd., Bradford, PA 16701.  This would mean that NIcky has lived there for a long time – and a three-hour drive from  Pittsburgh, where Jack and his family lived and were raised!

In other plot developments, the all-important  …Who is “Her?” flash-forward mystery was answered and we learn it is Rebecca.  She is still alive, and we see Beth in present day without her wedding ring to Randall, and seemingly running a ballet studio, getting set to meet up with Randall and adult Tess.  In a key moment Beth tells her employee: “We’re all going to see Randall’s mother .., oh, did you bring the Pin the Tail on the Donkey from the office? I promised I bring it.”  The Pearson Pin the Tail on the Donkey game has been a through-line for the years with the Big Three.

The fall finale gave a look into the future that Randall and Beth’s marriage may not have survived and it could have started with the fact that Randall would not drop out of the political race he was in, even after promising Beth he would, if things were not looking good for him as a candidate.  We also learn that Tess like girls and sorta came out to Randall and Beth, but did to her grandmother, Rebecca.

And, Toby and Kate learned that they are having a boy after cutting the cake to reveal its gender.

This Is Us EP, Dan Fogelman told EW.com about what to look for in the second half of the season when the show returns with all-new episodes starting on January 13th: “Now, it’s time — for a little while, and we will catch little glimpses — to focus on the present-day storylines that help you get there. There are many questions. Where are Kate and Toby in that period? Where is their relationship? Do they have children? Has Kevin figured out his love life? If so, with whom? Have Randall and Beth made it through as we hope Randall and Beth make it through? What has come of their respective careers? And what kind of shape or state is Rebecca in when we’re meeting her and they’re all going to visit her? In order to get to the future and to get more answers there, you need a little bit more present story in the back half of the season. So, I would say that should be the focus right now.”

Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) are late to Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding, after they decide to undress (after they get dressed to the nines for the nuptials) and have sex.  After they make love, Griffin gets a call from Monica (Leslie Charleson) saying that the boards results are in as to if he has been reinstated at the hospital.

Curtis and Jordan are now getting ready to say their “I do’s” when the minister asks if there is anyone that has just cause that the duo should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Cue, Stella (Vernee Watson) who walks in looking very unhappy.  Will she unravel the wedding … or sit down and be a part of the celebration after getting some words of wisdom from Mike (Max Gail)?
