Meg breaks into Lily’s house and threatens her with a shard of glass.  Damian bursts in and Lily elbows Meg, but gets cut in the process. Meg is taken away to Deerbrook.  Meg calls Paul, who’s on his way to consult with a fertility specialist about Mick’s treatments. She tells him that she needs him. Paul calls Emily and tells her they’ll have to postpone the treatment. Mick, who was about to knock Paul out again, is pleased the treatment consult must be delayed. Meg tells Paul he must help her escape from Deerbrook. Paul promises to help her. Later he promises Emily that he won’t bring drama into their lives by helping Meg. Craig and Rosanna want to get a marriage license, but need an eye witness.  They call Carly & Jack, who offer to do the job.  Carly and Molly join Rosanna at Metro for her bachelorette party Molly presses Carly about whether or not she’s comfortable with Rosanna marrying Craig. Carly would keep her mouth shut, but Janet gets on her nerves too and she defensively lashes out at both Janet and Ro. Carly apologizes and makes a toast and everyone scatters. Jack turns up at Metro to ask Janet to be his date at Craig and Ro’s wedding. She hesitatingly accepts. In Old Town, Molly tells Ro she can back out of the wedding at any time. Ro knows Craig isn’t perfect, but she insists they’re going into this marriage with their eyes wide open. Meanwhile, at Milltown, Craig turns up, drunk, and asks Carly if he’s good enough for Ro. Carly tries to comfort Craig but he won’t hear of it, admitting that he can’t possibly be a good partner for Ro when all he can think about is Carly. Craig’s still trying to convince Carly to sleep with him when Jack walks in. Craig leaves, but Jack gets the fact that Craig wanted to sleep with Carly out of her. Rosanna dreams of the “accident” – when Craig forced her off the road and into her coma. She attempts to steel her convictions (that Craig has changed for the better) for the wedding. Meanwhile, Carly, still wary about Craig’s intentions, goes to him at the Lakeview and throws herself on him. Craig would respond, but at the last moment he calls it off, citing his love for Rosanna.  At the Courthouse, everyone is almost ready for the ceremony, when Rosanna catches Craig and Carly caught up in a warm moment.  Rosanna sees Carly pinning on Craig’s boutonniere, and sees the way they look at each other.  At the wedding, Craig expresses his love for Rosanna, but Rosanna changes her mind.  She just can’t marry him, because she says he’s never looked at her the way he looked at Carly.  Craig and Rosanna discuss their relationship.  Craig essentially apologizes for having run Rosanna off the road all those years ago.  Rosanna appreciates it and she’s now free to leave town.  She’s going to Germany to run a motor company.

Brad has fun living again, in Henry’s body.  Katie thinks there’s a chance Brad’s made contact through Henry, and so she decides to go up to Henry and kiss him.  At the time she makes her move Brad has left Henry’s body at that point.  Later, Katie and Simon go for a walk away from Brad’s grave as Brad waches, feeling her slipping away.  Katie brings in a real estate agent, Dina, to look at her house to sell it.  Brad causes a ruckus, moving things around, and Dina rushes out, frightened.  Later, Katie wants to talk to Brad.  Jack wants the same, visiting Brad’s grave, wondering why for all the haunting Brad’s been doing, he hasn’t come to see his brother. Barbara and Emily continue their treatments with Mick. Alison and Paul continue to be wary of Mick. Barbara’s so curious about Mick; she steals his hotel room key and snoops around his room. Barbara discovers a letter she once wrote to James Stenbeck in a shoe box of Mick’s. Paul requests that he and Mick go talk to a real fertility doctor about his “treatments.”  Barbara gives a cop she’s paid off the glass that she stole from Mick’s hotel room. They say the fingerprints on the glass are James Stenbeck’s.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
