Holden and Lily are in France with Craig, having found out that the factory doesn’t really exist.  Holden and Lily try to fly back to Oakdale in time to make his wedding, but there is a storm over the Atlantic and they’re redirected to Canada.  They’ll try to make it home as quickly as possible.  Molly explains to Natalie and Ethan that she’s not looking to replace Lily.  Faith is on board, too.  Carly finishes up Molly’s dress and stresses over Holden’s having gone to help his ex-wife the night before his wedding.  Jack sees there’s a storm coming, and hears from Holden.  He and Carly tell Molly about this who tries to keep her spirits up, suggesting they relax and have a good time until Holden’s able to get back.  Carly works overtime to distract Molly from the fact that Holden’s stranded in Canada with Lily. In her efforts, she fakes a sprained ankle and Jack must take her to the ER. Abigail helps Molly get ready for the wedding and they discuss Abigail’s disastrous love life. Molly realizes she must take the advice she gives her daughter.  Lily bargains a diamond (from an old engagement ring Holden gave her) for a flight from Canada to Oakdale. It’s too late – Holden arrives at the farm only to find Molly in jeans. Molly can’t be with someone who doesn’t put her first. Abigail meets Reid, who she thinks might be Noah at first.  Reid admits that he and Luke are together.  Luke and Reid bond a bit over caring for Natalie and Ethan. Reid suggests he and Luke take the bridal suite Molly and Holden will no longer use. Luke’s hesitant, especially after the afternoon’s events. Reid thinks Luke’s worth the wait. They kiss.  Craig accuses Lucinda of orchestrating the perfume factory conspiracy. Lucinda defends herself and suggest Craig steer clear of Lily. Lucinda meets with Blackthorn and instructs him to complete phase two of their plan. Blackthorn tells Craig he wants what Craig owes him. Craig needs time, but Blackthorn’s unwilling to give him more than 24 hours. Henry swears he hears Barbara’s voice through the baby monitor at Katie’s house.  No one really believes him, except for Will, who’s willing to follow the lead if it can help locate Barbara.  Henry thinks to go back to Barbara’s room at the Lakeview, considering the woman seen in the surveillance footage might not be Barbara.  At EOD, despite having sworn against it, he finds himself once again in a dress, this time to find the woman he loves.  Iris celebrates her birthday at Al’s.  It’s not entirely happy because she’s kicked out of the Wagon Wheel.  Gwen asks Paul if Iris can stay with them for a few days.  Iris returns to Barbara in the Warehouse, gloating about a family photo taken with Gwen, Will and Hallie. Barbara tells Iris she’ll give her a check, if Iris retrieves Barbara’s checkbook from the strongbox in her hotel room.  Iris goes and jimmies the box open with the pen Barbara used the write the note, the pen with “Party Warehouse” on it.  Henry, as the Lakeview maid Henrietta, goes into the room and finds the pen.  Will finds Henry there, and they go to the Warehouse, where they find no sign of Barbara, since Iris has bound and gagged her and brought her to the Fairwinds Wine Cellar.  Iris keeps Barbara tied up in the Fairwinds Wine Cellar. Barbara tries to trick Iris, and Iris retaliates by shooting her with a paintball gun. Barbara’s left bound, gagged and humiliated. Gwen and Emily wonder where Iris has gone. Emily suggests Iris is drinking in the wine cellar, but Gwen refuses to believe that. At the EOD, Emily goes to hide their expensive Scotch in the wine cellar and encounters Iris, just leaving.  Henry tries to convince Will, Paul and Margo that Barbara was locked up in the warehouse. He uses a lipstick smudge on Chuckles, in Barbara’s color, as proof. Margo won’t investigate without real verification Barbara’s been taken hostage. Henry decides to call upon a psychic since there’s no psychical evidence. Myra Haft arrives and tells Will, Henry and Paul that there is a secret inside Chuckles.

Chris is now in full pursuit of the Chief of Staff position at the hospital.  He finally admits to Katie, who hadn’t caught on, that he’s doing these things for her, to show he’d be a good husband and father.  Chris draws the line and sternly asks Katie if she wants to go to the cabin.  She does, and they head up there, alone, because Tom and Margo have to stay in town for a case.  They kiss and are excited to make love, but Chris can’t because he’s physically unwell.  Chris collapses at the cabin, but won’t let Katie call 911. She drives him to Memorial where he treats himself. Chris assures Katie and Margo, who Katie called for moral support, he simply had acid reflux. Katie’s relieved his reaction was a simple medical problem, not an emotional one. Reid sees Chris order his blood to be tested for a rare tropical disease and he confronts Chris about his lies. Casey and Alison watch Jacob for a while and find it difficult.  The two of them, plus Gwen, barbecue at Casey’s house and realize among beer and babies they’re grown-ups.  Casey and Alison find themselves even closer together.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Gets Creepy As The Hope Mannequin Talks To Him

Leave it to the good folks over at The Bold and the Beautiful to incorporate a play on their headline-grabbing mannequin use during Covid-19.  B&B was the first American television show back in production during the pandemic, and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, told the media how they were using mannequins in several scenes in place of real actors when it comes to some intimate moments between characters.  Since the time, the show has also brought in real-life partners of their cast members when needed for a make-out scene, etc.

And that brings us to Thursday’s shocking reveal on the CBS daytime drama series, when Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), who seemed to be a more centered-version of himself of late, takes home with him the Hope for the Future shipment and opens the box.  He is for a surprise when inside the box is a lifelike mannequin of Hope  (Annika Noelle).  And from there, things spiral out of control, as viewers learned Thomas’ obsession with Hope is alive and well.

Thomas just can’t believe how life-like the mannequin of Hope is – saying to himself, “No wonder they use it for the Hope for the Future line.”  But then  after he takes the mannequin out of the box, it starts talking to him … in Hope’s voice, begging him to allow her to stay there with him and not put her back in the boX saying, .Please don’t lock me up in that box again.   I’ve been away from you too long… I know you want to be with me too.”  Then, Thomas who is having a very hard time between reality and this apparent hallucination shouts: “You’re not real!” What’s wrong with me?”

 

Perhaps Liam said it best earlier in the episode when Hope was speaking about Thomas to him, when he uttered.“I get creeped out just thinking about Thomas.”

Watch some of the Hope-mannequin action with Thomas below. Then weigh-in, what do you think of this plot twist? Share your thoughts in the comment section,

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Shares & Performs Emotional Tribute To Her Late Parents

It has been a challenging few years for former soap and current Selling Sunset star, Chrishell Stause, who is currently still in the running for the Mirror Ball Trophy following Monday night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars.

Last night, Chrishell shared in the pre-dance package that she was performing a contemporary routine with her pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, in honor of both of her parents who died from lung cancer in July of 2020 and April 2019.

Stause expressed: “They were really loving people. Some of my best memories are with my mom, dancing with her in the living room.  No one would be more excited about me being here and doing the show than her.” (referring to her mom who passed away this summer).  She continued on to say: “Right before I dance, I really feel her calm me, encourage me. That has been the most special thing I will take away from this show.  I know that my parents are with me. My mom’s name was Renee Stause, and my dad’s name was Jeff Stause. And this dance is for them.”

 

Dancing to “Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Chrishell and Gleb delivered the most emotional performance of the night.  And the judges took notice, as Carrie Ann Inaba said to Stause: “You poured your heart and soul into that dance.   Bruno added: “That was so emotionally engaging, so raw, so truthful, irresistible because you gave everything you have.”  While the three judges including Derek Hough also gave a rougher technical critique of her to improve upon next week, Chrishell and Gleb still scored all eights and 24 out of 30 overall.

At the end of the night, during the reveal of who was safe and who was in the bottom two, host Tyra Banks revealed that Chrishell and Gleb were safe.

Then, after combining the scores and fans’ votes, in the bottom two were Johnny Weir and Vernon Davis.  In a close decision, Derek chose to save Johnny, and Carrie Ann chose Vernon. So, it was up to Bruno to cast the deciding vote and he saved Johnny, sending Davis, the former NFL Pro football star, home.

Watch Chrishell’s emotional dance below.   Then let us know if you are rooting for Chrishell and what you thought of the very personal story she shared last night via the comment section below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Jesse Metcalfe Eliminated, Chrishell Stause Gets A Surprise From NKOTB

Last night on  ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, another soap opera alumni’s journey on the ballroom dance floor came to an end, when Jesse Metcalfe’s (Passions, Desperate Houswives and Dallas) ) and his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, were sent home by the judges after landing in the bottom two.

After combining the judges scores and fan voting at home, the other couple joining Jesse and Sharna in the bottom two were  Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd.  This season it is up to the judges to choose who stays and who goes when forced with picking between the two lowest scoring couples of the night.. Bruno chose Vernon, Carrie Ann followed and Derek also revealed he would have saved Davis or Metcalfe as well.

With Metcalfe eliminated following last’s week’s departure of Ex-Another World’s Anne Heche, that leaves only Chrishell Stause still in the running vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy from the world of daytime drama.

 

Here’s a recap of what went down on the dance floor for Metcalfe, Stause and Davis last night.

Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess – (Tango) – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Dancing to the classic by Tears for Fears, Metcalfe promised in the pre-package to loosen up and show a more human and vulnerable side to his dancing.  However, although there was a bit more coming from Jesse this outing, the judges criticized him for needing more technique than just performance. SCORE 19 out of 30

Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko (Cha-Cha)  – “The Right Stuff”

Revealing to all on the pre-package, Chrishell is a huge New Kids on the Block fan from back in her teens, and was stoked to dance to their song during the night’s 80’s competition,   However, during the performance, while Stause has shown improvement, this time the judges noted she seemed to slow down to much during the dance and also she needs to watch her footwork.  After Gleb and Chrishell danced, Tyra Banks had a surprise for Chrishell when the NKOTB sent in a viral video message to their biggest fan!  Stause was overjoyed.  SCORE 19 out of 30

Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd –  (Tango) – “Living’ on a Prayer”

Performing to Bon Jovi’s classic “Living on a Prayer”, Davis donned some rocker dude long locks and hit the floor with Murgatroyd, but the former pro football star looked stiff moving around the ballroom.  Judge Bruno noted that his footwork was a bit flat.  However, Carrie Ann shared she liked the quality of movement he was showing them.  SCORE 21 out of 30

So after looking at the clips of their performances below, did the right person get sent home in Metcalfe vs. Davis?  Do you think Chrishell can hold out longer on the series through the next rounds of competition?  Let us know in the comments section. (Also check out the moment when NKOTB message to Stause is played during the broadcast.)
