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.

Grand Hotel

GRAND HOTEL Finale: How Sky Died, Paternity Game-Changer, And Another Mystery Begins

ABC’s Grand Hotel ended its season with several plot twists that kept the hour soapy drama in a fast and furious pace to give viewers the answers they had been waiting for, and if the show was picked-up, a cliffhanger with multiple suspects who could be responsible for this new crime.

If you have not watched the finale and intend to, do not read any further, spoilers contained herein:

Danny is finally revealed to Santiago and Gigi to be the brother of the deceased Sky.  Alicia decides to help Danny figure out what happened to his sister on the night she died in the hurricane.  Through flashbacks, we learn that Sky discovered the suicide note that Beatriz had written inside a closet full of jewelry while on a date with Yoli.  Sky used the Intel in it to blackmail Gigi, but Gigi says she does not have access to that kind of cash.   The letter contains the damaging proof that Mrs P and Santiago had a child together, Jason.  Santiago did not know.  To make matters even worse in current time, Santiago just made Gigi’s daughters: Carolina and Yoli part of his new will.

It seems that Mrs. P and Gigi kept the secret of Jason’s paternity and did not want to come out.  Helen put the hotel on lockdown, leaving Sky trapped and having to go through the only available exit to get out of the hotel, which led her into the night and the hurricane.  There, Gigi confronts her at gunpoint. However, there is a scuffle, and lo and behold, Mrs. P husband’s, Malcolm steps out of the shadows after overhearing that his wife had an fling and child with Santiago and clubbed Sky in the back causing her death.

After Gigi admitted to Santiago, while he was trying to push Danny over the hotel balcony, that she did not kill Sky, Gigi eventually reveals who it was, leading Danny and Alicia to later head to the hospital where Malcolm is dying.  Alicia confronts Mrs. P about her lies and how she hid Jason’s paternity from him and Santiago.  Meanwhile, Danny decides not to tell Malcolm’s family that he killed his sister, because as Danny says, “the universe had already found another way to punish him” – and with that – a few moments later, Malcolm dies.

Now that Santiago had learned that he is the bio-dad of Jason, he won’t forgive Gigi, who clearly does not want Jason getting more of the pie than her daughters if Santiago were to have the opportunity to adjust his will.  Meanwhile, Santiago has finally blackmailed Mateo out of his job at the hotel, but Mateo does not want the evidence on the flash drive Santiago has in his possession to come out of the deed that he has done.  Mrs P. also gets into a very intense phone conversation with Santiago and they agree to meet downstairs at the hotel.

However, as Santiago walks through the dark halls, out of the shadows gun shots are fired, and he is left bleeding out on the floor.  Did Gigi, Mateo, Helen or even someone else shoot him?  Maybe Carolina and Yoli’s father is the culprit, who is said to be returning home after finding out his daughters are now in Santiago’s will and who has no love lost for the guy!

In other stories, Javi was seduced by an older woman who turned out to be an alcoholic and Ingrid’s mother, a pissed Ingrid then hooks up with Mateo.  And  finally, as Danny goes to the ocean to say goodbye to his sister Sky by throwing her lighter into the sea, Alicia asks, what he is going to do next?  He says, he will return home to Chicago, but at that point the two of them share a passionate kiss.

Throughout the episode, the emotional heart of it was played to perfection by Lincoln Younes as Danny, who as the brother trying to avenge his sister’s death, played all the beats of his story arc.

So, what did you think of the Grand Hotel finale? What did you think of who was revealed to have killed Sky? Who do you think shot Santiago? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Goes Over A Cliff! If He Survives, Will They Redeem Him?

Now here’s a ‘cliff’-hanger moment for a Friday soap, that brought with it what could be a game-changing moment, certainly for the relationship of Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), and what looks like for Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).  For months, Thomas had become more obsessed and unhinged over keeping Hope (Annika Noelle) from her child Beth and away from the man she truly loves, Liam (Scott Clifton).

Many of Thomas’ acts have been truly despicable.  But now after a wake-up call conversation with his son, Douglas, and an attempt to set things right with Hope, who wants nothing to do with him, things take a turn when at Steffy’s,  Hope screams at Thomas to stay away from her. He tries to explain he just wants to talk to her, but she wants nothing to do with him.

We then see Brooke making it to the house, and seeing the ensuing argument,  She fears the worse and becomes in-between her daughter and her stepson, as Ridgeis also heading to the house to make sure nothing happens between Thomas and Hope.

But then, in a push/pull moment, Thomas goes over the cliff.  Brooke is mortified. And from the promo for next week’s B&B, Thomas is unconscious and might not make it, as Ridge sits by his bedside.

So, what is this twist all about? Either, Thomas choreographed the fall to gain sympathy and knew exactly what he was doing, or it was an accident, that might look like an attempted murder for now, and that will cause trouble between Brooke and Ridge, but also, and perhaps through testing in the hospital it might reveal, Thomas had a brain tumor causing him to act erratically?  Or, could it be that on Friday’s episode Thomas truly had a quick come-to-Jesus moment and had already realized the horrors of his way and was truly trying to set things right?  Or, could someone sneak into hospital room and snuff him out with a pillow? Many theories!

Now watch below the final moments when Thomas takes a major tumble and next week’s promo for B&B.  Then, weigh-in: What do you think the show will do with the character of Thomas now? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.
