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.

Dancing with the Stars

‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justin Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.

OLTL Alum Ryan Phillippe Weighs-In on Shocking Twist in Season Opener of ‘Big Sky’

Hold on to your seats! Last night’s highly-anticipated arrival of ABC’s new drama, Big Sky from David E, Kelley offered several shocking moments and surprises as the dark story took viewers down a twisty path as we were introduced to all the characters.

Throughout it’s promotional push the network has touted the series having three leads played by One Life to Live alum, and TV and motion picture star, Ryan Phillippe (Ex-Billy Douglas), along with Katheryn Winnick, and Kylie Bunbury

Turns out that was a set-up so viewers, who had spent the entire hour learning of the complex relationships of this threesome, and how they work together to begin to solve a crime of three young women who have gone missing and kidnapped   But then in the episode’s final moments, Phillippe’s character of PI Cody Hoyt is shot dead!

Ryan shared his thoughts on going into the series knowing his character would be killed-off right off the bat: “I was shocked certainly, and I think that’s also what made me so excited about it. So often in entertainment you can see what’s coming a month away, and to have moments in a series like this where it kind of takes your breath away, when you are absolutely shocked and did not see it coming, it’s exciting to me.”  Phillippe added: “I think it sends the message that in a series like this, no one is safe, so you really have to pay attention and hope that the people you love stick around.”

But will Phillippe’s Cody be seen on future episodes such as Milo Ventimigilia is seen on This Is Us?  Ryan told a press panel: “That’s not the last you’ll see or hear of him.”

Look for Cody to definitely appear in flashbacks, while Deadline is reporting that the actor will be seen in several more installments of the TV drama.

In story, Cody was shot by State Trooper Rick Legarski (John Carroll Lynch) who is covering-up being at the epicenter of sex trafficking ring in Montana.  While viewers saw a bloody ending, we never saw an image of a dead Cody either, we can only assume.

Did you watch the season premiere of Big Sky? What do you think of network TV becoming more like some of the hottest shows on cable with shocking and unexpected twists right off the bat as the series begin? Share your thoughts below.
