Janet tends to Dusty for the moment, as he’s still recuperating from his fights at Avalon Castle.  They kiss, but soon Janet’s having contractions.  He brings her to the hospital where the doctor does a sonogram.  Dusty has a copy and talks to John about it, speculating that the baby is bigger than expected because it’s actually Dusty’s. At EOD, John has Dusty’s cup tested against the DNA for Janet’s baby’s father. Liberty gets into F.I.T. from the waiting list, but is reluctant to go because of the baby on the way.  Faith encourages her to go, mostly because she’s jealous of Liberty’s and Parker’s relationship. She sees them at Al’s, Parker telling Liberty a secret of his own. Faith later tells Janet about Liberty’s having gotten in.  Janet is excited for Liberty and wants her to pursue her dreams despite the baby, because Janet’s done it before and moreover she’s not alone this time.  Liberty suggests to Faith that she be more honest with Parker, since that’s how she’ll win his heart.

Parker and Sage see that Jack and Carly are happy.  Sage hopes this means they’ll get married again, and wants to prod them in that direction.  Parker thinks if the status quo works, they shouldn’t mess it up by getting married again.  Sage leaves a picture of one of their earlier weddings on the couch, where Jack and Carly later find it.  They talk about how things have gone wrong in the past, but soon Jack is ready to propose.  But he gets a call that Janet’s having contractions.  They go to the hospital and later return, and Jack picks up where he left off, asking Carly to marry him.  It’s Carly and Jack’s wedding day. Carly’s nervous about the wedding. Gwen brings in Rosanna hoping her presence will help. Carly’s thrilled Jack tracked Ro down and the sisters reconcile. Gwen and Ro give Carly some alone time to collect herself. Carly leaves the house and goes to the Snyder pond. Carly accidentally drops the compass into the pond and Jack finds her in a tizzy unable to find it. Jack reassures her that they no longer need the compass to find each other.  Carly shares a warm moment with Gwen, Ro and Molly. They’ll all give her a flower for her bouquet.  Jack thanks Parker, Will and Holden for being there for him. He never thought, after Brad’s death, he’d feel this happy again. Carly and Jack are wed. Gwen, Rosanna, and Molly participate in the ceremony. Everyone’s thrilled when it goes off without a hitch – even with Craig present.

Lily and Gabriel warn Craig not to attend the wedding but he shows up anyway. Holden and Lily grow closer over their family.  Molly and Holden make up, in no small part because of Lily’s polite prodding. Parker tells everyone that he plans to be a cop, and go to police academy instead of college. Carly and Jack are nervous but supportive. Parker kisses Faith. Gabriel tells Craig he’s moving back to Montega. Craig flips out. Rosanna encourages Craig to let Gabriel go. Craig wishes Gabriel well and hugs him. Craig offers to buy Rosanna a drink and she accepts.  Liberty, however, is concerned about the whereabouts of her mother. Liberty tries to reach her, but the call goes straight to voicemail.

Dusty helps Janet decorate the cabin Jack and Carly will spend their honeymoon in. Dusty falls off a ladder, but is fine. Janet’s water breaks.  Carly and Jack leave their wedding and go to the cabin for their honeymoon. There they find Dusty injured and Janet having major contractions. With emotions running high, they all prepare to help Janet give birth in the cabin. With no time left, Jack, Carly, and Dusty pull together to help Janet deliver her baby in the cabin. Jack drives them to the hospital so Janet and the baby can be checked out. Jack discovers Carly weak, but before he can find a nurse to examine her they run into John telling Dusty that he’s the father of Janet’s baby. They’re all stunned. Dusty couldn’t be happier that John went behind his back and conducted a DNA test. Jack takes the news in stride and focuses on handing Carly off to a nurse.  Dusty goes to Janet and tells her the news. She feels for Jack, but she’s thrilled. Liberty and Teri arrive and congratulate the happy parents. Liberty finds Jack in the corridor and sympathizes with his loss. She encourages him to talk to Janet. Janet assures Jack that he’ll play a role in the baby’s life. Liberty says goodbye to her mother and the rest of her family, new and old. Dusty assures Teri and Liberty that he’ll close on the house he promised Janet and add a new addition to welcome all of them. Jack watches the happy family moment only to be pulled away by Carly who’s heard back about her tests. In private, Carly breaks the news to Jack – she’s pregnant.  They kiss passionately.

Lucinda consoles Luke over his loss. She assures him Reid will be remembered – she’ll also start a fellowship in his name. Luke’s further upset when he hears that Lucinda and Lily are fighting. Lucinda’s convinced there’s nothing she can do to win Lily back. She’s grateful when Noah interrupts Luke’s speech about how the loss of Reid has taught him that life is too short to waste holding grudges. Noah compliments Luke on finding his calling in his dedication to the hospital and Reid’s vision. When Luke realizes Noah’s at Java to work, he refuses to let him stay in Oakdale and give up his dreams in LA. Luke drags Noah to WOAK, where he gives him a piece of cinematic equipment. They realize they first met there. Luke and Noah acknowledge that they helped each other grow and come into their own. They share a warm goodbye.

John tries to compel Lily to forgive Lucinda. Lily won’t budge and Holden supports her. John runs into Lucinda at the Lakeview Lounge and admits that he spoke to Lily, to no avail. Lucinda’s downtrodden, even when John offers to take her with him to Amsterdam. Lucinda jumps at the opportunity to make amends when Lily invites her over, but when she arrives, Lily confesses that she’s didn’t invite Lucinda over to patch things up between them. She wants her mother to get her own life. Lucinda decides to take John up on his offer. Holden’s proud of Lily. They talk about growing up and starting their lives anew – and so, for a start, Holden kisses her.

In this final episode, Bob spends an otherwise ordinary day at his office, packing up his things before he and Kim move out to Arizona.  As he packs, he reflects on his life and long career as a doctor in this town.  He’s seen love and loss, birth and death, as many others in Oakdale have.  Alison wakes Casey up on this, the day they move to Carbondale.  Chris proposes to Katie, and she accepts.  Holden goes fishing with Ethan.  Tom and Margo, and Chris and Katie, agree to swap houses, one for a hopefully growing family, one for a pair of new empty-nesters.  Dusty and Janet introduce Jack and Carly to their baby, Lorenzo Dustin Donovan.  Jack and Carly are themselves almost a trimester into Carly’s pregnancy, and Sage can’t wait to tell the world.  Faith gets Parker to supervise her driving, but she speeds and gets them into trouble. Parker tries to take the heat for it, and Jack and Carly recognize themselves in the teens.  Luke is bereft after the loss of Reid, but he finds some solace in his family, especially Natalie, and in being there for them.  Paul wants out of business with Barbara, but he and Emily are surprised when Henry and Barbara meet them for dinner and Barbara has paperwork of her own that she wants Paul to sign.  She wants out, too.  It looks like Lily and Holden will find their way back to each other.  Craig wants the same for him and Rosanna, whom Johnny is excited to see.  Susan says goodbye to Bob.  Lucinda and John are themselves once again a couple, as Lisa supports them.  Kim gives Bob all the time he needs in his office.  Bob pockets his nameplate.  He spins the globe on his desk and leaves, but it lights up and keeps turning.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Has a Comeback, Kaitlyn Bristowe Overcomes Injury, One Couple Is Eliminated

On Tuesday evenings second night of competition in the new season of Dancing with the Stars, three former soap stars took to the ballroom dance floor in a night which also featured for the first time this season … the viewers vote counting for 50% of the total score, and one couple being sent home.

The “drama” of the episode was if former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe’s ankle would be OK enough for her to dance her routine.  With her being placed at the end of the show and then “wowing” everyone – it was hard to know how bad the injury was, but, as she detailed on the show she did receive a cortisone shot before performing and changed shoes to help her get through.

Meanwhile, Chrishell Stause, the former AMC, DAYS and Y&R star, currently on the reality hit, Selling Sunset, showed improvement, while ex- Passions, Desperate Housewives and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe continued to bring the heat – although the judges want him to dance with less use of his facial expressions – and Daytime Emmy winner Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marley, AW)  continued to be having the time of her life from her performances.

Here’a what went down…

Kaitlyn Bristowe and partner Artem Chigvintsev (Foxtrot): Performing to Leann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” and with the uncertainty of if she would dance at all, Bristowe, who wanted to be a dancer, got major kudos from the judges for her dramatic lines and moves fluidly through the dance floor and closed the night – combined total score of last week and this week 42 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Anne Heche and partner Keo Mostepe (Foxtrot): Performing to One Republic’s “Counting Stars”,  Heche revealed this was one of her favorite songs, and she also revealed this dance was to honor her two sons.  Although the judges did not feel Heche delivered as strongly with this performance than in the season opener, Anne still looked like she was enjoying every second of being on the floor – combined total score 36 out of 60

Chrishell Stause and partner Gleb Savchenko (Rumba):  Stause showed her vulnerability including sharing a story from her childhood past.  Then then duo danced to “This Is Me” from the Greatest Showman.  During the performance, Stause looked more fluid on the floor than the previous week and was praised for her improvement  – Combined total score 31 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Jesse Metcalfe and partner Sharna Burgess (Foxtror): This duo performed to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and played up their chemistry on the floor. The critique from the judges had more to do with Jesse not looking so intense, and also his posture, but all told they did well – Combined score was 38 out of 60.

Now to the first elimination:  Carole Baskin and Charles Oakley were the celebrities in the bottom two.   It was up to the judges to decide which celebrity would be saved.  Bruno picked Charles, but Carrie Ann picked Carole, leaving Derek to cast the deciding vote … and he saved Carole.

So what did you think of how Chrishell, Anne and Jesse did on last night’s DWTS?  Did the right celeb get sent packing? What did you think of Kaitlyn’s dance and ankle injury? Comment below, but first check out their dances.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Steffy vs. Liam Opioid Showdown

Things have gone off the rails for Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) now that she is addicted to painkillers, scoring drugs from places other than a prescription from the good doc, Finn (Tanner Novlan), who also has the hots for his favorite patient.

Enter Liam (Scott Clifton), who has flip-flopped so many times between Steffy and Hope (Annika Noelle) and who is the person who finds Steffy knocked out on her couch, while their daughter is not being attended to.

Now after finding pills that Steffy had tucked away in her couch, Liam goes on the offense and confronts Steffy who is pretending she no longer needs opioids to cope with her physical pain – but as we realize it’s also the emotional pain she has been in for months that have also brought her to this point,

When Liam wants her to admit she has a drug problem,  Steffy fires back “How dare you?” and mocks him over his “over-bearing” concern for her.  He then presents this “holier than thou” attitude where he tells her that he is not cool about Finn being involved with her when he is her doctor.

However, when Liam is confused to hear from Steffy that Finn doesn’t know about the pill bottle he has now in his possession, that is when she cries and admits she is still taking pills.  Steffy then counters that Liam does not understand – that he left her and their daughter, Kelly for Hope – and that she is all alone.  She goes on to say Finn has been there for her, like nobody else has been.

In the end, left with no choice, Liam tells Steffy he is leaving and taking their daughter with him, which leaves Steffy wrecked.  Will she try to stop Liam from taking their daughter?

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood delivered another one of her top-notch performances in today’s episode as well.

So, what did you think of the Liam and Steffy scenes on Tuesday’s episode of B&B? Comment below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
