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: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.

GH’s Holly Set Ablaze; Show Reveals Stunt Double For Emma Samms From Major Cliffhanger

If you caught the end of Tuesday’s fiery episode of General Hospital, you know that Holly (Emma Samms) who was cornered by the PCPD, ended up on fire when the cabin she was in went up in flames!

In the cliffhanger, Holly was seen on fire coming out of the cabin.  Of course, viewers knew that a stunt double would have to be called in to tape such a moment, and that is exactly what the ABC daytime drama series did.

On Wednesday, GH’s official Instagram released a photo of Samms and stunt performer Colby Lemmo stating: “We’re seeing double! 🔥 Let’s give stunt performer @colby_lemmo a hand for helping bring yesterday’s explosive finale to life. 👏👏👏 ”

Lemmo has performed stunts for major motion pictures and TV shows  including: The Mandalorian, Westworld, Criminal Minds, 9-1-1. and many others.

Now the question becomes, what will happen to Holly? We know that Emma Samms only returned to GH for a limited-run to reprise her signature GH role.

Does this mean that Holly might be recast with a new face, if she is badly burned and disfigured … or is this just an exit strategy where the character gets sent away to heal from her burns … or was that not really Holly who came out of the cabin?  Three possible theories that fans are pondering.

So, what did you think of the fiery conclusion of yesterday’s GH? What do you think will happen to Holly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge Learns The Truth About The CPS Call During His Nuptials to Taylor

Were you betting that Taylor (Krista Allen) would tell the truth to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) before she said her “I do’s”, or did you think she would keep her mouth shut and marry the man today? We got part of our answer on today’s highly-anticipated episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

At the altar, with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) giving her mother side eye that she needs to come clean to Ridge before she marries him, while Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) on the other side of his mom is trying to get her to go through with the nuptials, Taylor becomes overwhelmed,  She says to Ridge, “I have to tell you something.” However, that was a big fat red herring, because she immediately gushes that she’s ready to marry him.  Thomas smirks and Steffy’s is in shock.

Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) continues officiating the ceremony and then when he asks if anyone present has an objection to the union, it is none other than Steffy who says “I do.”  Thomas is seething.  Steffy continues to say that she objects to the wedding.

Ridge is perplexed, and so Steffy goes on to say it’s complicated, but he needs to know the truth, and tells Thomas to do just that.  Thomas begs Steffy to stop, but she won’t.

Next, Steffy tells Ridge, “Dad, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) didn’t hide anything from you. You deserve to know the truth… the truth about the CPS call.”  Thomas wants Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) to leave the room, but he won’t.  Now, Thomas is squirming a bit.

Steffy says it’s about the call to Child Protective Services, adding,“You thought it was Brooke, but it wasn’t.” Steffy reveals Thomas made the recording but Ridge feels that doesn’t make any sense.  Next thing you know, our hero, Douglas plays the CPS call on his phone. He first plays the Brook-voiced version, and then the call in Thomas’ voice.

Ridge is still not getting it (sometimes you just have to hit the Forrester men over the head!) until Douglas explains it’s an app on his phone where you can record your voice and can make it sound like someone else!  Now Ridge turns to his son filled with betrayal.  Thomas reminds his father he said he wanted to marry Taylor and the CPS call had nothing to do with it and all he wanted to do was make him happy.

Ridge yells, “Do I look happy to you?” Next, he really lays into Thomas: “You destroyed my marriage! My son! YOU did this!”

Meanwhile, at her home, Brooke is being comforted by her visiting father, Stephen (Patrick Duffy), who already told Brooke that he feels she should be furious at Ridge for ending their marriage without giving her a reason.  Stephen feels leaving his daughter with no explanation is just plain cruel of Ridge.

So, did you think the truth of the CPS call would come out at the wedding on today’s episode? What do you think will happen next? Will Ridge marry Taylor anyway?  Will he high-tail it back to Brooke … and if he does, should she even take him back? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the bombshell ending of Monday’s B&B below.
