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.

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.)
