It’s Casey and Alison’s wedding day.  Mick has Alison in the Bell Tower, and he lets her go downstairs when they hear footsteps.  Alison finds that it’s Emily, who calls Margo to send some police help to get Mick out of there and get Alison to safety.  Margo follows up, and Mick is led to a police car.  Mick escapes and comes back in time for the wedding.  It becomes a hostage situation – Mick, Paul, Emily, Alison, Casey, Barbara and Henry are inside.  Bob fakes an illness and he and Kim are taken to the hospital for examination.  Mick shoots Paul in the leg. Alison confronts Mick, urging him to remember who he is and who he is not (James).  But James wins out, and when Alison accuses him of not being a good liar, he says, to Casey’s shock, that he got Alison into bed, didn’t he?  Casey hurls himself at Mick and Mick’s gun goes off again, but it doesn’t hit anyone. Outside, Margo’s panicked to hear gun shots. She’s calls Mick and tries to negotiate with him. Mick-as-James won’t be negotiated with — he takes Ali and Casey to another room, while everyone else must stay in the church. Mick sadistically ties up Alison and Casey so they can talk about her betrayal. Casey berates Ali for lying to him and making him feel like a fool. Ali convinces Mick that she’ll run away with him and she leads him out of the church – with Casey following hot on their heels. Meanwhile, Margo’s found a way into the church and rescues Barbara, Henry, Emily and the still bleeding Paul. Ali and Mick stop in an alley and Mick turns to her and she realizes he’s repossessed his body back from James. Mick tells Ali he loves her, but he can’t force her to leave. He wants her to come with him on her own free will. Ali can’t answer before Casey arrives. Mick-as-James raises his gun to Casey, but Margo steps in and raises her own gun at Mick. Mick tells Alison goodbye and he runs into the street where he’s quickly struck by a large van. At the hospital, Paul recuperates from his gunshot wound and Emily tells him that she doesn’t need a child for them to be a family – she just needs him. Alison sees Mick into his room, and the nurse tells her Mick’s chances of survival don’t look good. Ali turns away from the room only to see Casey give her the cold shoulder and walk away from her with Margo and Tom. Ali’s left in the hospital corridor in her bloody wedding gown. Later, Casey goes looking for Alison and he finds her checking on Mick. Upset Casey goes but Ali follows him. She pleads with him to understand, but he can’t forgive her. Ali returns to hospital where Emily tries to comfort her but Ali has to take care of something. She goes to collect her things at Tom and Margo’s, when Casey shows up. She tells him she’s moving out and Casey wonders if she thought maybe he pushed her to get married. Ali assures him she wanted it just as much as him, but maybe it was too fast. There’s a thaw between them that’s halted by Ali’s cell phone ringing. A nurse tells her Mick’s taken a turn for the worse. At the hospital, Paul visits Mick and would pull out Mick’s ventilator but his conscious won’t let him – even when Mick, awake, motions for Paul to end his live. Emily’s proud of Paul when he tells her he didn’t kill Mick. Ali goes to Mick’s bedside. She tells him that she’s sorry she couldn’t save him. Mick flat lines. Ali kisses him and his heartbeat starts up again. Back at the Hughes’, Casey forlornly looks at the engagement ring Ali left behind. Meanwhile, Henry comforts Barbara at the Lakeview.

Liberty and Janet go to the hospital for another chemo treatment, but the doctor tells them the medication has affected Liberty’s immune system too much and they’re going to let her rest and recuperate before they resume. Liberty finds Janet’s bone marrow donor list and secretly checks to see if there have been any matches.   Carly and Craig meet a potential investor in Monte Carlo.  Craig makes Carly pretend they’re dating to seal the deal. Dusty calls Janet’s father Rocco to see if he can help Liberty.  Rocco doesn’t want anything to do with Dusty, so Dusty head to Melrose Park to see him and leaves a picture of Janet and Liberty for Rocco.  Parker stumbles onto Jack and Carly being close. Rocco’s health is later determined to exclude him from consideration.   In a last-ditch effort, Janet tells Jack that they have to have a baby together, to see if they can help Liberty.

The producer makes sure Molly’s on top of the Damian story.  Molly assures him it’ll be great, then turns to Holden and says they have a problem.  Lily waits for word re: Damian.  She tells Holden that Lucinda has a PI working on it.  The PI said no one saw Damian on any Grimaldi ship that left that day.  Lily says she doesn’t think Holden’s being honest with her about what’s going on.  Lily tells Holden that Luke was called to Grimaldi shipping after a crewmember saw a bloody body on the deck.  The body was then gone.  Holden says it could have been anyone on that deck.  Molly is running out of ways to put off the Damian assignment.  Holden tells her what Luke knew, that a crew guy saw a body that might have rolled into the water.  Holden (again) says Damian could be dead.  Holden tells her he’s going to turn himself in.  Molly tries to talk Holden out of confessing.  Holden agrees to at least think about not turning himself in. Molly is there to get Lily’s perspective on the case for her WOAK piece.  Molly wonders if Lily knows what might have happened to Damian after Holden let him go.  Lily wonders what Molly’s up to. Molly defends herself, and Lily relents.  Molly fakes a coughing fit, Lily gets water, and Molly snaps a photo of Damian’s inscription to Lily on the cover page, and steals a photo of Damian and Lily. Molly examines the picture, calls someone to have a portion blown up, and wants the name of a jeweler. Ethan asks if Damian’s dead.  Holden says no, he just went away. Lily is suspicious of what Holden knows.  Holden asks if Lily wants Damian to come back.  Holden is sure Damian’s not coming back.  Holden tells Molly he couldn’t convince Lily he didn’t know anything about what happened to Damian.  Molly’s relieved he didn’t crack.  Molly says she supplied the ending to Damian’s story.  Lily finds a small jewelry box with Damian’s ring in it and a note saying goodbye.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

Courtesy/WWE

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

Photo: ABC

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
