Everyone tries to be strong for Liberty’s first chemo appointment but tensions are high. Carly arrives at the hospital much to Jack’s surprise, with a fashion care package for Liberty to distract herself with/focus her positive energy on. Liberty’s grateful Janet was big enough to ask Carly to come. Janet’s upset when Jack and Carly get tested to see if they can be potential bone marrow donors for Liberty – she wants to believe the chemo will work and they won’t have to explore any other options. Carly bows out gracefully and Jack comforts Janet.  Jack is considerate to Liberty, tending to her needs.  He gets a call from Carly that Parker’s principal wants to see them.  They go, and the principal has noticed that Parker’s been skipping classes again, after making good progress.  The principal implies Carly’s been drinking again, but Jack strongly defends her, calls the principal on it and explains that Liberty’s illness has really affected Parker.  They return home and see Parker and Liberty, in bed, sleeping.  They’re proud of their son, compliment each other, and end up kissing, though Carly breaks away and says it can’t happen again.  Parker supports Liberty, jokes with her a little bit, but also consoles her when she gives in to her fear and sadness.  Janet goes to be tested to see if she can donate bone marrow to Liberty, in case the chemo doesn’t work. Once at the hospital she runs into Dusty doing the same thing. Dusty helps Janet over her fear of needles and they share an intimate moment, interrupted by Teri. Dusty makes a fast exit, but Teri’s quick to realize that Janet and Dusty slept together. Janet can’t deny it, but she insists it was a onetime deal. She returns to Snyder Kitchen only to run into Jack who’s returned from Fashions with an early Valentine’s Day gift. It’s a little black dress and Janet loves it. Little does she realize that Carly ran into Jack at Fashions and helped him pick the dress out. Later, Janet and Jack are both thinking about how Dusty and Carly, respectively, helped them out earlier. Dusty and Carly share a meal at the diner and commiserate.  

Alison goes to get the morning after pill and is discovered by Susan. Susan realizes Ali had relations with Mick and she warns Ali to stay away from him. Emily finds Ali at Tom and Margo’s after leaving Fairwinds, where she and Paul had Mick arrested and Barbara admonished and kicked out. Emily tells Alison that Mick isn’t who he says he is. Ali’s deeply disturbed to learn that Mick claims to be James Stenbeck. She goes to the police station and confronts him. Mick pleads with her and tells her that he could only be himself with her. Ali would try to glean more information from him but Barbara arrives with a lawyer and demands Mick accompany her. Back at Fairwinds, Emily realizes if Mick’s a fraud then she’s probably still unlikely to ever become pregnant. Paul vows to punish MickCasey and Alison admire the cake the nurse staff made Ali to celebrate her last day at work before the wedding/honeymoon. Ali’s still jittery over the news that Mick’s been arrested and claims to be James Stenbeck. Emily arrives in the corridor to tell Ali that the DNA proves that Mick seems to be James Stenbeck. Ali gives a scream of horror, but tells a concerned and confused Casey it was a scream of delight because Emily told her that her wedding dress was ready. Casey buys it and leaves them alone. Emily tells Alison not to feel bad for bringing Mick into their lives. Alison’s disturbed that she slept with Mick, but she keeps this to herself. Meanwhile, at the Police Station, Paul’s confronting Mick, when Mick passes out due to an extreme nose bleed. They take him to the hospital where Ali tends to him in private. He wakes up and Ali assures him that she’ll help him and his nose bleed stops. Ali goes to call a doctor, but Mick takes out the guard and asks her to run away with him. Ali complies and they find themselves in the Bell Tower. Paul finds out Mick’s escaped and he grabs a gun and leaves Fairwinds. At Tom and Margo’s, Margo asks Casey if he’s sure he doesn’t want to postpone the wedding since Ali may be involved with the Mick/James Stenbeck situation. Casey defends Alison.  Casey’s recording a video for the wedding. Bob’s participating when he picks up that Casey might have a case of cold feet. Casey assures him that’s not the case, but Bob and Casey are both troubled when Emily and Susan show up looking for Alison (Emily having been clued in by Susan that Ali slept with Mick). Emily and Susan pretend nothing’s wrong, but Bob’s not convinced. Meanwhile, Ali’s with Mick in the Bell Tower where he confides in her that James Stenbeck took him under a wing as a young boy and made him do his bidding. Mick explains that James implanted his personality to a certain degree, within Mick and his brain, and Mick’s purpose to is to carry out pain and destruction upon Paul and all the people he loves – just as James would have wanted. Ali tells him she won’t let him hurt anyone. He says she must run away with him for that to happen but Alison can’t as she’s getting married tomorrow. Mick tries to convince Ali that she doesn’t want to marry Casey and live a mundane life, but Ali stays strong. They hear Paul arrive and Ali intercepts him. She sees he has a gun and she lies to him and tells him that Mick’s run away to a private plane. Paul buys it and leaves, assuring Alison that he’ll protect her and her family from Mick. Ali tells Mick to run away and she kisses him and returns home to a relieved Casey. They kiss, and Mick, watching from outside, glowers. He returns to the Bell Tower where it appears that that James Stenbeck wins the personality contest within him. Mick/James will execute his plans at the wedding. Barbara’s saddened by Paul’s rage against her. Henry shows up and they share a warm moment talking about James and how she wanted to look young again to compete with younger women for Henry (among other reasons). Henry assures Barbara that she’s sexy now. Barbara asks him to go to Casey and Ali’s wedding with her, Henry would, but he and Katie are already going together. He leaves. Barbara’s still lonely.  Emily finds Paul at home with the gun and she learns that he wants to kill Mick. Emily convinces Paul to leave Mick alone, since they’re different now and they love each other and James Stenbeck can’t get to them anymore. 

Lily comes home to find a crazed Meg in her house.  Lily triggers a silent alarm.  Holden and Molly are at Java when Molly has to leave, says it’s an assignment.  Really, a friend of hers has tipped her off that Lily called the cops on Meg, so Molly goes around and picks Meg up to protect her.  Meg does run away from Molly but Molly does pick her up, calms her down a bit, and encourages her to do the right thing and give herself and her family a chance.  Luke meets with Gregor, who says a bloody body might have fallen off a ship.  Lily wants Luke to put Damian and Holden in their proper place.  He must continue to think of Holden as his father, and he can’t let thoughts of Damian turn him against Holden.  Privately, Lily wonders if Holden could have killed Damian. 

Maddie is looking for a roommate.  Noah suggests himself, though it might be awkward for Luke because of their history. So Maddie thinks of getting a third roommate.  Reid calls Katie on her second thoughts about having Jacob tested as a bone marrow donor.  Reid and Katie have had a thaw.  Reid has experienced loss in his way, with some patients having died, and he takes personal responsibility for those losses, that he must fight harder the next time.  Katie has obviously experienced loss, with Brad.  She’s upset and Reid, despite his cold front, consoles her.  Henry interferes with Reid, so Reid has Henry quarantined by an orderly for tuberculosis.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Makes The Heartbreaking Decision About Mike In Episode With Touching Performances

For anyone who has gone through losing a loved one to Alzheimer’s Disease, Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital would bring them right back to the place they found themselves in when faced with the difficult decision of what to do when there is no more hope, when the disease has progressed to its most advance stages, and wanting the person they love to die with what dignity they have left.

Through Sonny’s journey played beautifully by Maurice Benard, we see a son who wants to do what he can to prolong his father’s life, holding on to the moments where there seemed to be some signs of life within his dad, and not wanting the guilt of being the person to make the ultimate decision – in this case to put Mike (Max Gail) on a feeding tube, when he no longer has the desire to eat.

Wanting to move forward with the procedure to have a feeding tube put into Mike, Sonny runs into Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) who tells him about Yvonne, and how she is at GH on a feeding tube and a ventilator and strapped to a bed.

When Sonny sees how Yvonne is hooked to machines, it is a real awakening for him,  That, coupled with one of the most important talks and moments in the Alzheimer’s storyline when Sonny speaks to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)  – who tells him how she sees Mike, who is now a shell of himself, who doesn’t smile, doesn’t eat, and so forth – Sonny is aware of what he truly needs to do.  These scenes they were played to perfection by Rebecca Herbst and Maurice Benard, and couple that with Laura Wright and Steve Burton as a concerned and emotional Carly and Jason; seeing how this situation is ripping Sonny apart, and also facing that Mike will die, they too are devastated and delivered hankie-filled moments in their scenes.

The final minutes of the episode featured father and son in a simple, quiet, and powerful scene where Sonny tells his dad, he is not going to have a procedure, and that it’s OK for him to go.   Mike, in tears, hears what Sonny is saying and is relieved.  Sonny has set him free to die, and now Sonny must face his decision – a selfless one that any of us who have been in this position know has to be done for their loved one; so there will be no more suffering and no more pain.  Kudos to GH for today’s scenes in this storyline.

Watch the scene between Sonny and Elizabeth below.

Now let us know via the comment section, how do you think GH handled this major moment in the telling of the Alzheimer’s storyline? What did you think of the performances?

Days Of Our Lives

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Share your thoughts and theories on the return of Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan on DAYS; Did you think she was behind the bomb? Let us know  via the comment section below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Sally Reveals Her Plan To Nab Wyatt; Katie Lowers The Boom On Bill

BOLD is back!  On Tuesday, July 21st, the CBS Daytime drama, The Bold and the Beautiful aired its first original episodes in months, and should be congratulated not only for being the first soap back in production, but who also, in short order,  got new episodes on the air starting with today.

And, there was plenty of action in the first show back amid the coronavirus pandemic.  So, here’s the key points of what went down.

Sally (Courtney Hope) and Dr. Escobar (Monica Ruiz) wind up tying an unconscious Flo (Katrina Bowden) to a radiator after the doc conked her over the head previously, when Flo found out Sally’s been faking her illness.  Meanwhile, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) comes by Sally’s place, and sees how the place is in complete disarray.  A concerned Wyatt phones Sally who lies that she fell, and is with her doctor getting checked out.

When Wyatt tells Sally he wants to be there for her, she takes that to the extreme.  Dr. Escobar goes on how they will be arrested for kidnapping Flo.  Sally, who is becoming more unglued, says under her breath:“The threat of just losing me isn’t enough.”  Just then, Flo wakes up and is in for a rude awakening when she realizes she is kidnapped and tied up.  Flo thinks Sally has lost it.   Sally tries to reason to her that they never meant for this to happen, but she is going after Wyatt.  Flo warns her she won’t get him like this way  … and then Sally says this is the perfect moment for her to get pregnant due to what the app says on her phone, and she will have Wyatt’s children and a family,   Then, angry and vindictive, Sally tells Flo in no uncertain times: “I refuse to lose to you. I’m going to have Wyatt’s baby.”

Elsewhere at Forrester Creations, Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont) get into a discussion about the consequences he must face for kissing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), but he doesn’t know what Katie is about to say.  She says she believes he’s sorry. and she loves him very much, but she doesn’t know if she can forgive him this time.  Bill attempts to reason with Katie, by saying that “Bitch Quinn” (Rena Sofer) weaponized his kiss with Brooke and made them collateral damage.  All he wants is to come home.  However, Katie has other plans and wants them to tell their son, Will, what is going on between them … they’re separated and they may not get back together.  It should be noted that Heather Tom, who just won her record-tying sixth Daytime Emmy, proved again why she is a multi-winner with her performance in these scenes.

And at the beach house, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) talk over the current state of their lives; where he realizes and so does she, that something more has to be in her life than raising a baby and work.  Cue the new doctor in town (Tanner Novlan as “Finn”) later this week!

So, what did you think of B&B’s first new episode back? Comment below..
