Carly asks Jack to call off their investigation into Blackthorn – she’s worried it’s all about Ralph and Brad’s death – she doesn’t want Jack to go off the deep end again. Jack assures her his motives are innocent. Carly goes to the spa while Jack confronts Craig and Blackthorn. Craig’s startled to hear that Blackthorn could have any association with Ralph. Blackie denies. Meanwhile, in the spa, Carly tells Janet that she should stay away from Blackie. Janet rushes off, furious for being told what to do. Carly and Lily argue about Craig and Lily establishes they are no longer partners. Carly and Jack reunite and share that they’ve both discovered that Lucinda was behind the plot to ruin Craig. They take a romantic walk in the garden, only to run into Blackie and Janet. Later, Jack realizes Blackie had the coin Jack had given Dusty… which meant that they had to have crossed paths. Lucinda arrives at Avalon but Lily wants nothing to do with her. Lucinda receives a mysterious phone call, and visits the caller – Ralph.  Blackie’s thugs keep Dusty in a pantry. Dusty manages to head butt Blackie. Blackie exits the pantry, and runs into Janet about to enter.  Craig’s only too delighted to let Lily stay in his hotel room. He offers to take her to dinner. En route he runs into Lucinda and taunts her about his relationship with Lily. He implies that they’re intimately involved and Lucinda pushes him into a pool. Craig spots Carly arriving and asks her for help, but she pushes him back in the pool. Lily comes to his rescue and they walk back to his hotel room so he can change. Lucinda spies on Craig and Lily entering his hotel room, looking very much like a couple. She goes to Ralph and insist he call Blackthorn off so she can make amends with Lily. Lily thinks about taking over WorldWide. Craig kisses her and asks her to make love to him. Lily and Craig break off from their kiss, Lily thinking all of this is a game to Craig, who doesn’t want Lily to deny what’s going on between them.  Lily thinks he’s just like Lucinda, using people for his own personal gain.  Lily suggests he focus on being a father, redeeming himself that way.

Jack won’t give up his investigation into Blackthorn and Dusty’s whereabouts. He reassures Carly he’s acting as a cop and not because of his personal issues over Brad’s death. Carly forces Jack to check in with Margo. Margo discovers Dusty was potentially forced into a limo. Jack finds the same limo in the parking lot of Avalon Castle. He’s convinced Dusty’s being held there by Blackthorn.  Blackthorn stops Janet from entering the pantry where Dusty’s being held. He convinces Janet to meet him for dinner. Janet runs into Carly and Jack at the bar and Jack tells her that he suspects Blackthorn and Dusty have crossed paths recently. Suspicious Janet returns to the pantry, where Blackthorn once again stops her from entering. Dusty manages to make noise and Janet questions Blackthorn about what’s in the pantry.  Dusty is contained by two thugs.  They bring him around back to the dumpster where Blackthorn levels a gun on him.  But Jack shoots that gun out of Blackie’s hand and Dusty is okay. Faith wants Holden to be more concerned that Lily went to a fancy hotel with a guy, namely Craig.  Holden wants to explain that he can’t control what Lily does.  Faith knows Holden still has feelings for Lily and wants him not to just sit on them.  But Holden says he’s been chasing her a long time, maybe what loves him should find him.  Lily comes over and they work in the yard as Faith looks on, happy at the tableau. Ralph wants Lucinda, whom he knows from way back as Mary Ellen Walters, to go on the run with him.  Jack eventually finds Ralph, doesn’t shoot him, but has him arrested.  At EOD, Ralph meaningfully pretends he doesn’t know Lucinda, even from the past.

Reid admonishes Katie for sleeping with Chris. He’s thinking about Chris’s health but Katie thinks Reid’s just being a bad sport. Luke runs into Chris at the hospital and tells him that Reid’s suffering keeping Chris’ secret. Chris is furious at Reid for telling Luke that he’s sick. Luke tries to intervene, but Reid and Chris argue. Katie takes Chris to a pre-school open house in Old Town. Chris starts to feel sick and rushes to the hospital. Chris asks Luke to keep Katie at bay if she comes looking for him. Luke complies, but at the EOD Katie finds Chris in the hospital on oxygen. She demands to know what’s wrong with him. Katie wonders what’s wrong with Chris, who insists he’s fine, for most of the day.  But at the wedding, he realizes he must tell her the truth and does at the EOD, saying he’s sick and may not get better.

Barbara and Henry tell Paul, Emily, Gwen and Will that they plan to marry and would like the family to support them. Paul thinks Barbara’s perpetuating the curse of Stenbeck by marrying his son. Barbara won’t be told what to do by her son, so she leaves. Henry blasts Paul for not looking out for his mother’s happiness. Will and Gwen decide they should support Barbara and Henry. They return to Fairwinds only to find Henry and Barbara gone, and Paul stubbornly opposing the union. Henry goes to Barbara and rescinds his proposal.  Henry withdraws his proposal, saying he can’t marry Barbara because he loves her too much.  He’s worried about the Stenbeck curse that his Stenbeck blood will only continue to bring Barbara pain and misery.  But Barbara won’t have it, won’t let James continue to mar the rest of her life.  Henry relents.  Separately, Kim is excited for Barbara, though Paul is reluctant.  Barbara and Henry would get married in her LV hotel room, but are brought downstairs to the lounge where it’s set up with a makeshift aisle and everything.  Chris and Katie are there as well, as are Gwen and Will.  Eerily, many of these people see the Judge as James, threatening them, but with Barbara and Henry’s vows and kind words to each other, James is cast away and Henry and Barbara are married.  Paul asks them back to Fairwinds to burn some photographs, symbolically exorcising James from their lives, hopefully for the last time.  Barbara and Henry leave for him to carry her over the threshold as, at EOD, Paul and Emily make love. Will goes to Parker to talk about their father, Hal. Parker hints that he knows what he’d like to do with his future – but he’s not telling anyone yet. Kim and Bob see John Dixon checking into the Lakeview.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Dante is Shot as Jason Reveals Himself

Just how was General Hospital going to reintroduce the character of Jason Morgan to the canvas with the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton in the pivotal role? Well, why we don’t have all the answers, the show wasted no time, and Burton first appeared at the beginning of the Monday, March 4th episode.

In story, while Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selena (Lydia Look) and Ava (Maura West) are at the warehouse, they are facing off with the FBI and the PCPD when John (Adam J. Harrington), Anna (Finola Hughes), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Chase (Josh Swickard) et al show up.  Meanwhile on the roof, a man kneels over a skylight window who pipes up with, “it appears they are late to the party.” It’s then revealed just who the man is talking to, and it turns out it’s JASON!

Meanwhile, John and Anna are questioning Sonny and Selina on what they are doing in the warehouse. Selina says they are planning a poker game. Next, the man with Jason aims his gun at Sonny. However, Jason messes up his shot, but the shot rings out. Inside the warehouse everyone scatters about. They realize the show came from the skylight.

Jason tells the other man they’ve been compromised and need to leave the location. Below, in the warehouse, Dante thinks that he and Chase can get onto the roof since the shooter didn’t see them. So, Dante takes off with Chase to find the culprit. In the meantime, John orders a CSI unit. Next, Chase returns and says the building is all clear and Dante is pursuing the suspects.

Now on the pier, Dante catches up with Jason (who’s back is to him) and the other man. Dante orders them to freeze. While the other man gets away, Jason stays put and Dante orders him to turn around slowly with his hands up. Dante is shocked to see its Jason. Confused, Dante says, “What the hell?” Next, the other man returns and fires two shots into Dante’s chest.

As Dante goes down, Jason runs over to him. The other man calls Jason “Jacobs” and tell him to leave the cop to die. Jason tells the other man to go to the planned site and he will find another way out. Next, the man attempts to fire at Jason who is hovering over Dante, but Jason shoots at him first and takes him out.

Back at the warehouse, Ava sees a bullet hole in Sonny sleeve, as John says that it confirms that Sonny is the intended target. John and Sonny stare each other down due to their dark past.  It’s clear that Sonny doesn’t trust John and vice-versa.  Anna tells Sonny she is not out to get him and doesn’t want him to die. She adds that Sonny, “Must have had an angel on his shoulder because she doesn’t see how that sniper missed from this range.”

Chase returns to the warehouse having dropped everyone off at the PCPD, but says Dante hasn’t checked in with him. Sonny looks very concerned, as Jason is looking very concerned over Dante’s body.

So, what did you think of the first episode back for Steve Burton as Jason Morgan? Will it be revealed that he has been infiltrating this organization to save Sonny? Does Jason not know his true identify? What do you think is going on?  As for Dante, will he pass out from his injuries and not identify Jason was even there on the roof with him? Comment below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Trends on ‘X’ after Finn Puts His Hand in Sheila’s Blood

We got to give it up for fans of The Bold and the Beautiful, who during and after the CBS daytime drama series aired its Thursday, February 29th, took to X (formerly Twitter) to let their feelings be known on what they just witnessed. B&B is still trending on the social media platform as of this posing

In story, Finn (Tanner Novlan) is reeling from Sheila’s (Kimberlin Brown) death. He seems more pre-occupied that he lost his mother (who previously shot him, and his wife Steffy, and kept him hostage for months and separated from his family) than he is his wife. Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is also in shock and upset that she had to act in self-defense when Sheila broke into their home and was there to harm her.

The end of the line for Sheila came when Steffy stabbed the supervillain and is now presumed dead; after the paramedics and the cops arrived on the scene. (That is if you believe everyone who showed up from the first responders is legit.)

At the cliff house, Finn becomes emotional over the thought of something happening to Steffy or the kids. Steffy tells Finn that she truly thought Sheila was going to shoot her.

Finn fires back, “So you plunged a knife into her?” Steffy explains she had to protect herself, and that she is “sorry!” Finn snarls, “You’re sorry? You’re sorry for killing my mom?”

Next, in what can only be defined as Finn showing his ‘inner-Sheila’ he walks over to the blood stained carpet. He kneels down and touches it and put his hand it it, and cries.

A startled Steffy says, “What are you doing?” With his blood-soaked hand, Finn stands up and as Steffy steps toward him to attempt to comfort him, he backs away. In the tag of the episode, Finn says to Steffy, “My mom’s blood is on my hand. And yours, Steffy.”

Meanwhile, Hope (Annika Noelle) is flummoxed when she learned from Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) that Sheila died when Steffy in self-defense grabbed a knife and stabbed her. Hope’s first reaction was, “Does Finn know?! Does Finn know that Steffy killed his birth mom?!” Many a viewer believes this is all leading to Hope ‘comforting’ Finn.

Take a look below and just some of the gifs, memes and comments that are making The Bold and the Beautiful still trend on X today below.

Now let us know, what did you think of Finn’s reaction to Sheila’s death, his blood-stained hands and how he seems to be blaming Steffy for his mother’s death? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

‘General Hospital’ Reignites Scott’s Feud with Sonny Over His Past Misdeeds of His Late Daughter, Karen Wexler

In what now seems like many moons ago, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) was a small-time mobster who owned a strip club in Port Charles. He enticed a young Karen Wexler (Cari Shayne) to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge.

But things got worse from there! Sonny convinced Karen that stripping was her idea, and he eventually got her hooked on drugs and into his bed!

Karen’s father, Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) has never forgotten what Sonny did Karen and for years wanted to take him down when he was the D.A. Fast-forward and on Wednesday’s February 28th episode of GH, Scott visited Karen’s gravesite on her birthday.

However, Scott had a visitor at the gravesite when John “Jagger” Cates also showed up to pay respects to his ex-wife.  This was the first time Scott laid eyes on the new incarnation of “Jagger’ on-screen as played by Adam J. Harrington.

Scott realizes he might have an ally to put the screws to Sonny after John reveals the pain and sorrow he still has over what Sonny did to Karen. Speaking to his former son-in-law about the break-up of his daughter’s marriage to him, Scott pipes up that Sonny, “walks around like he’s the mayor.” Then, Scott shouts to John, “Make him pay! Take him out!”‘

In Karen’s backstory: after getting help, Karen was reunited with “Jagger” and left Sonny. The two married and left Port Charles. Karen returned as medical student and had divorced “Jagger” in 1997, and the character landed on the General Hospital spinoff soap opera, Port Charles. Eventually, Karen was struck by a car and died. Three actresses played the role during Karen’s history: Cari Shayne, Jennifer Hammon and Marie Wilson.

Watch Scott and John talk about their vendetta against Sonny Corinthos in key scenes from GH below. Now let us know, do you think Sonny should pay for his manipulation of Karen Wexler many years ago? Comment below.
