Jack and Carly are hiding in the closet, trying to ignore their closeness, while Bridget and Hayden are in the room outside.  Carly denies she brought Jack on the trip to seduce him.  After they’re almost caught, they find Sage’s CD and bring it to her.  It’s her turn to perform but she gets stage fright and admits she lied about wanting to be Little Miss Snowflake in order to get Carly and Jack back together to realize that they still love each other.  Carly and Jack deny it.  Sage sings “Never Surrender” and it is a warm, close moment for them.  Sage goes to look for Parker and Liberty while Jack and Carly go to pack.  They agree they have to convince Sage they’re not getting back together, though they don’t seem convinced themselves.  They’re about to kiss when Janet arrives.  She tells Jack she’s ready to fight for their marriage. Parker and Liberty go on a hike through the woods and a couple of immature teenagers make them realize they’ve both had to grow up fast.  They have a leaf fight and then she cries because she misses her dad.  They agree they’ll miss each other when Liberty goes to college, and then realize they’re lost.  Trying to cross a ravine, Parker hurts his leg.  At first he tells Liberty he’s okay, but it’s bleeding, and he has to stop walking.  They find a cave where they can spend the night and Parker passes out.  Liberty takes care of Parker in the cave.  She finds some wood and makes a crutch for Parker.  At the hotel, Jack and Carly are worried, as is Janet.  Sage wonders if it’s her fault, but they assure her it isn’t.  Janet goes off and calls Dusty, who calms her down, but then also shows up in Michigan with resources.  Jack shakes his hand, which Janet notices.  Liberty and Parker get to the hotel and Parker’s looked at by the EMTs.  Parker is released from the hospital.  His brace and wheelchair make his injury look more serious than it is, a hairline fracture.  But he gets home and is happy to have felt like a family for a moment.  It gets out that Parker had been in on Sage’s plan to get Jack and Carly together.  Liberty is still at the hospital.  Dusty brings food for her and she appreciates it.  Her doctor notices a bruise and runs some tests.  It turns out that Liberty is very sick and must be kept at the hospital.  Parker tries to come to Liberty’s rescue, and sneak her out of the hospital, but Jack and Carly are onto him and follow him. Jack tells Liberty she should stay and Liberty accuses Jack of being an inconsistent father figure to her and an inconsistent husband to her mother. Jack apologizes and he shares that he too saw Brad’s spirit on Christmas. Liberty lets up on Jack slightly. She tells Parker to go home. Later, Carly catches Jack moving out. Their goodbye turns into a real kiss.  Janet and Dusty learn from Dr. Presserman that Liberty has leukemia. Janet prays in the chapel as Dusty comforts her. He assures her this isn’t divine retribution for their affair. Dusty gives Janet the strength to break the news to Liberty.

Clarissa tries to convince Simon to complete the real estate scam but Simon knows he’ll have to disappear and he doesn’t want to leave Oakdale.  Katie sees the two of them together but denies to Henry that it upsets her.  Clarissa tempts Simon with a large “tip” and he takes it, but then goes to see Katie and tells her he wants to take her out to dinner.  Katie suggests he ask Clarissa instead.  Simon tells her he isn’t involved with Clarissa and turned her down so he can stay.  Katie says she’s not ready, but he says he’ll wait, and then kisses her.  Henry flirts with Clarissa and tells her he can take Simon’s place in their scam.  Katie pulls back after Simon’s kiss.  Her life is so busy right now and she’s not sure if Simon’s ready for it.  Simon says a home life would be appealing to him now.  Katie then gets a visit from Pam, the real estate agent, wondering if Katie’s still thinking of selling.  Pam makes sure the ghost is gone, and then gives Katie her card.  Simon comes back and Katie admits that she already has feelings for him.  Katie’s incredulous when Simon admits he’s okay with that and is prepared to stay.  Henry assures Clarissa he can fill in for Simon.  Henry goes on about Katie, all her best qualities, and Clarissa picks up on the fact that this isn’t just about Simon.  Katie goes to Oakdale Now to start taping a segment for her new show about being a single mom. Everyone treats her gingerly, and while Katie insists she’s up for it she breaks down while taping and runs into Simon’s willing arms. Kim tells her to take all the time she needs. Simon comforts her but they’re interrupted by a phone call from Henry. Simon realizes Henry’s attempt to take Simon’s place in Clarissa’s scam has gone awry. Katie agrees to help Simon rescue Henry. They go and convince Mr. Lee, the man about to be swindled, that they’re FBI agents and they quickly escort Clarissa and Henry out of the Lounge. Katie, Simon and Henry are all proud of their work, but Clarissa’s furious the scam she put years of work into is now dead in the water. Clarissa tells Simon he’s pathetic for wanting to settle down in a boring town for a boring blonde. When Henry’s gone, Katie tells Simon to leave town. She’s sure he’ll be bored of her soon, like Clarissa said. Simon tells Katie he loves her, but he’ll leave if she wants him too. Katie tells him he should leave Oakdale, but she’ll come with him. Simon’s stunned.  Katie and Simon are set to leave. They tell Henry goodbye.  Margo, however, convinces Katie to postpone their departure.  Margo and Henry decide to pull out all the stops at Katie’s going away party to make her decide to stay.

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..
