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… Read more »

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Dancing with the Stars

‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justina Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.
