Cara’s surprised when she sees Kendall’s engagement ring. Without revealing much Kendall downplays the engagement. Jake’s upset when Amanda tells him she stopped taking her birth control and might be pregnant. Amanda confides in Angie that she is hoping she’s pregnant despite the fact Jake’s mad at her. Amanda’s convinced having a baby will fix their problems. Jack tells Bianca he has a feeling something’s up with Erica. Based on the footage he saw of Diane and Ricky, Griffin searches for more evidence. Kendall learns that Ricky killed Diane and now she’s afraid. Griffin consoles Kendall and they share a moment. After Tad sees Griffin questioning someone about the casino, Griffin tells Tad that Ricky most likely killed Zach and fills him in on what he and Kendall have been up to. Tad’s surprised but agrees not to tell Cara. Ricky says he wants to marry Kendall immediately. Even though he made a pact with Krystal to pull back from Cara (and she agreed to pull back from Jack), Tad interrupts a close moment between Jake and Cara, claiming that Amanda needs him. Cara misinterprets Tad’s comment when he says he wants to spend the night with her. For a moment she thought he meant romantically but realizes he meant platonically. Amanda is in tears over her fight with Jake and Tad reassures her everything will be fine. Amanda’s upset that she’s not pregnant and when Jake comes home and apologizes, Amanda doesn’t say anything; she’s just happy when he says if she’s pregnant then it was meant to be. Ricky and Kendall’s wedding gets under way and through her earpiece Griffin tells Kendall not to go through with it. Kendall calls it off, claiming she wants their wedding to be unforgettable and offers to go on the yacht with him instead. Kendall tells Bianca she must bring things to an end and she informs Griffin through the earpiece that she will handle this and then cuts off communication. Before she gets a chance to leave, Griffin shows up and she tells him that she’ll get Ricky to confess while they’re on the boat. Seeing she has a gun is the last straw for him and he tosses her over his shoulder. Ricky overhears Bianca telling Miranda to stay away from him. Krystal senses something isn’t right with Erica. Scott tells Marissa that he will help Madison no matter what. JR thinks Marissa’s making a big mistake when she says she’ll be there for Scott. Scott tells JR that Marissa is a free agent now so back off. JR tells Maya she doesn’t need to be so formal around him (she’s been wearing long sleeves) but what he doesn’t notice are the bruises she’s hiding underneath her sleeves. In an effort to get away from Griffin, even though she knows he’s looking out for her best interest, Kendall injects him with a syringe. Realizing Bianca knows the truth about him, Ricky knocks out her and Marissa, ties them up, and puts them in a closet. When she awakes, Bianca has flashbacks to her rape and screams for Marissa to get away from her. As Ricky prepares to sail away, Kendall notices Bianca’s cell on the floor. Ricky admits he didn’t want to hurt Bianca and as he takes Kendall into his arms she pulls out the gun.

Jake asks Amanda why she would throw her “possible pregnancy” in Cara’s face. Jake is surprised when he learns from a nurse that Amanda isn’t pregnant. Unaware that Griffin never left PV, Cara thinks he’s dead after seeing a news report about danger in Afghanistan. She decides to go look for him but Jake stands in her way and the two shares a close moment. Tad wants to tell Cara the truth about her brother as he feels it’s wrong to still keep it from her. Tad tells Amanda that he knows her marriage is in trouble and she should go home and fix it. Griffin gets arrested and tries to tell the cop that Kendall is in danger. Tad shows up and defends Griffin; he knocks the gun from the cop’s hand so Griffin can escape. Kendall gets Ricky to admit he killed Zach and how. Ricky discovers a tape recorder under her clothes when he rips them off to make love and smashes it. Kendall threatens to use her gun. Marissa tries to console Bianca as she has horrible memories of Michael Cambias and the rape. The girls break out of the closet and Marissa gets Bianca to the hospital.  Bianca continues to have flashbacks of Michael Cambias. JR takes care of Marissa and while she knows he’s taking advantage of the situation to be with her, she’s ok with that because right now it’s what she needs. Liza agrees to help Tad put reasonable doubt on Ricky by examining the DNA under Diana’s fingernails. She tells Tad she didn’t realize how much he loved Cara until now. Jake and Cara come close to having sex with each other. Tad tells Cara the truth about Griffin and he apologizes for not being honest with her. Griffin shows up just as Ricky grabs the gun from Kendall. He threatens both of them but Kendall and Griffin are able to distract Ricky and take him down. Jesse shows up and arrests Ricky for kidnapping Bianca and Marissa. After sharing a moment with Kendall, Griffin is also arrested. Kendall says he’s hurt and Jesse says he’ll have Griffin checked out once they get down to the station. Kendall goes with them and says she’ll fight to clear his name.

Ugh–I can’t believe how stupid Kendall’s story has been and that it has dragged and I mean dragged for 6 months too long. Kane or no Kane blood in her–she has to have some screws loose like the writers on AMC. A widow and her being the only parent left–decides that maybe her children should become orphans because she is superwoman after AMC instilled into our heads that Kendall had to move on from Zach dying because her heart was weak and she couldn’t think about him has to try to solve not only Zach’s murderer but is also aiding and abbetting a fugitve from the law. Only Frons could have come up with this stupid story–and now that its over –Kendall is ready again to move on just like that–because–now there is no more worries about selling the casinos? GMAFB. They better pray to God that when Zach comes back–we are not going to be entrenched into a another triangle for Kendall –we just left the longest triangle with Ryan after 6 years and now we are heading into another one, at the end of the line. Wonderful–just wonderful.

Dynasty

‘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!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Unmasked! The Part Of Nicole Walker Is Now Being Played By Kristen DiMera

On Friday, NBC’s Days of our Lives delivered quite the cliffhanger as fans go into the Memorial Day Weekend.  There had been plenty of speculation that something just wasn’t quite right with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) since her “return from the dead” to Salem.  Leave it to head writer, Ron Carlivati to come up with an exciting twist …  and he did!

As it turns out, that isn’t Nicole after all, but Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) wearing a very convincing Nicole mask and weaving her plot while under wraps; chief among those plots is to nab Brady (Eric Martsolf) as her man; once and for all.

In story, at the Salem Inn, “Nicole” kisses Brady.  At first he responds, but then backs off, until “Nicole” yelps, “Damn it, Brady! Why are you fighting me on this? Just forget about Holly.”  Brady is stunned! “Nicole” says she wants to escape the pain of losing her daughter, but Brady leaves and “Nicole” smashes a vase.

Later at the Inn, Xander (Paul Telfer) hands over Holly’s hospital records.  Meanwhile, “Nicole” tells her accomplice all about the memorial service and how devastated Eric (Greg Vaughn ) was, and how bad she wants to be with Brady.  Admitting Brady currently rejected her, she says it’s only a matter of time before he gives in to her seductions.

Next, we see “Nicole” ripping a mask from her face, just as Xander announces that Nicole is being played by “Kristen DiMera” and smirks.  Meanwhile, Kristen emerges from under the mask, free at last as her wig comes off as she lets down her hair.   Thus, the pieces all are starting to fit together.

Kudos to Arianne Zucker for playing Nicole and Kristen as Nicole, and we can’t wait to see Stacy Haiduk as the conniving Kristen as this story unfolds.

Watch a promo for next week’s DAYS below.  Then let us know, what you thought of the twist: that Kristen is pretending to be Nicole, via the comment section below..

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Four: Joss Sings For Oscar, Valentin Takes The Stage, Kevin In Dire ‘Straits’, Ava Waits For Ryan

The conclusion of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 episodes brought with it emotional moments and performances from the stage, and major drama with yet to come ramifications for several people of Port Charles.

After Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) knocked out Kevin and switched places with him, yet again, the serial killer is on the loose at the ball. Later, when Scott (Kin Shriner) is backstage and is upset about Ava’s (Maura West) relationship with Kevin, Scott comes face-to-face with “Kevin” and having enough, tries to grab Scott’s hand to stop him from leaving. But, lo and behold, off comes his prosthetic hand.  Next, Ryan clubs Scott over the head, who now is the only person that saw Ryan at the ball.

Elsewhere, Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) confronts Willow (Katelyn MacMullan), after overhearing her conversation with Diane that she has a child, and he asks here if she was pregnant when she left “Dawn of Day”.  She claims she miscarried their child, but he refuses to believe a word out of her mouth and becomes irate.

Michael (Chad Duell) saves Willow and warns Shiloh to stay away from her and his family. An out-of-sorts Shiloh heads back to his table where Sam (Kelly Monaco), Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and Brad (Parry Shen) are.  Shiloh informs Sam that he just found out someone had his baby and deceived him.  Lucas and Brad are both alarmed.

The first musical performance of the episode was Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) rendition of Seals & Crofts classic, “Get Closer”.  Wally Kurth and Lisa LoCicero remain one of the endearing duos on the show.

Meanwhile, the question. and of course. the big musical finale hinged on Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), and if she would perform the song she wrote with Oscar (Garren Stitt) at his request and in his honor.  In the best scene of all the ball episodes this year, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds a conflicted Joss outside the ballroom.  She says she thought she was stronger and could do this, but she isn’t.  An emotional Sonny shares with her how Oscar will always be with her, and be OK with whatever choice she makes. Sonny relates it back to Stone and his relationship with him while the young man was living and while he has been deceased.  Maurice Benard and Eden McCoy delivered in this tender scene.

In the next musical number, Valentin Cassasdine (James Patrick Stuart) attempts to calm down a drunken Nina (Michelle Stafford), who is all out of sorts due to her hatred of Willow.(and perhaps her lust for Jax?), by taking to the stage to perform his number.  This time, Stuart plays the piano and sings “Nothing without You” by Vienna Tang.  And once again, Valentin wowed the audience, and James sang beautifully, as he has each year at the ball.

Still undecided if she can perform, Josslyn worries she’s letting everyone down. Jax (Ingo Rademacher) comes to see her and reassures her, saying she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone, she just needs to follow her heart.

Finally, Josslyn makes the decision to perform, and that she does in the emotional high point of the episode.  As she performs this song about the list of things she and Oscar were planning to do together before the young man died, and how she will carry it with her, she sees Oscar in the back of the ballroom in his tux singing with her and rooting her on.  Kudos to Eden McCoy for being the heartbeat of this year’s ball, along with Lynn Herring, who the ‘ball’ would not be the ball without Lucy Coe,

As the Nurses’ Ball winds down, Shiloh is becoming unglued, and as Sam tries to calm him down, he tells her she needs to finish her initiation tonight.  He says he needs her to be in the ‘trust’ and he needs her strength.  Oh-oh!  Will Sam go through with this to trap the guy, or are we going to witness a major backfire?

A massive light bulb has gone off in Lucas’ head and he tells Brad he believes Willow and Shiloh are Wylie’s birth parents. Brad doesn’t know what to say, and we all know why!

As Lucy is instructing the clean up crew to take everything down on the stage, the curtains open and Kevin is suspended in midair hoisted up, knocked out, and trapped in a straight-jacket!  Everyone is horrified.  Cut to Ava who is at her safe house preparing to kill Ryan all by herself.  She gets everything in place, while she sips on some booze and waits for Ryan to arrive, and sure enough, we come to the cliffhanger.   Ryan sees Ava from outside the widow.  What will happen next?

So, what did you think of the final installment of this year’s Nurses Ball? What did you think of the performances from Joss, Valentin, and Ned and Olivia? Will Ava kill Ryan, or will someone else do it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first,check out Josslyn’s AKA Eden McCoy’s performance below.
