A ranger finds Carly, Jack and Craig in the cabin. He can only take back two people back.  Jack goes with him while Carly opts to stay and care for Craig. Craig miserable with his cold and on top of it he must wear an old tracksuit. Craig won’t give up on Carly. Janet wakes up in Dusty’s room, mortified that they’ve made love. Dusty tries to convince her that she has nothing to be ashamed of. Janet leaves the elevator downstairs only to run smack into Jack who’s thrilled she stuck around – he thinks – for their date. Janet tries to play the part of willing wife, but when she eyes Dusty lurking in the corner she asks Jack if they can return to the farm instead of celebrating New Years at the Lakeview. At the farm Jack tries to put the moves on Janet but she flips on him and berates him for everything he put her through. She asks him to leave and go back to Milltown and Carly. Jack does. Janet collapses. Dusty goes to Metro to vent and runs into Teri who’s at a loss with what to do with all the food she made for people who never showed up for their reservations due to the blackout. Dusty suggest they donate it to shelters and they do. Teri returns to the farm and tells Janet she has feelings for Dusty. Teri asks Janet if there’s anything going on between Dusty and Janet and Janet denies, but does say she thinks her marriage is over. Later, Jack turns up at Carly’s door, afraid his marriage may be over. Dusty encourages Janet not to feel too bad about their having made love.  It was a human impulse.  Janet concedes that it was good, but she has trouble with the morality of it.  They do agree that they’re adults and can still work together.  Janet’s priest stops by and she tells him she feels bad, and the priest says repentance is a hopeful sign.  She later tells Jack that she’s spoken to her priest about an annulment.  Sage wants to go to Michigan for the Miss Snowflake America pageant, but really to get Jack and Carly together, as she thinks they belong.  Parker backs her on this, convincing Carly it’s what Sage really wants.  At EOD, it’s agreed that they’ll go.  Jack and Carly talk about where they are, how the timing’s so often off for them.  He shakes off the rust and remembers how to shoot, practicing on bottles.  Carly welcomes him back.  Liberty discovers she’s been admitted to F.I.T., with the provision that she turn in sketches of her ideas. Craig overhears Liberty lamenting her misfortune, since she’s never sketched before. He suggests to Janet that he take her to Carly, who can assist her. Janet begrudgingly agrees.  Jack, Carly, Parker and Sage leave for Michigan so Sage can enter the Miss Snowflake America Pageant. They immediately make enemies with a mother and daughter named Bridget and Hayden, who are determined to win at any cost. Liberty and Craig arrive and Carly manages to get rid of Craig by telling him she’s only in Michigan to seduce Jack. Craig tells Jack this. Jack goes to find Carly, and finds her sneaking into Bridget and Hayden’s room. Carly suspects they stole the CD with Sage’s recital piece on it. When they hear Bridget and Hayden returning they hide in the closet. Meanwhile, Liberty’s found Parker and discovered that the only reason the kids brought Carly and Jack to Michigan was to set them up. Liberty’s upset with Parker for trying to take Jack away from her mother before they’ve resolved their differences or decided to separate themselves. Parker apologizes and they go for a walk.  Janet realizes she can no longer live at the farm, with the family of the man she may no longer want to be married to. Dusty helps her move to the Lakeview, but then convinces her to give her marriage one last shot.

Henry cheers Katie up by sending her to Al’s where he knows she’ll run into Simon, who he’s recently employed there. Simon’s thinking of moving to Oakdale permanently. Katie’s concerned he’s staying for her, but Simon insists Oakdale simply feels like home to him. Henry sits for Jacob and they bond. Simon and Katie return to Henry and Jacob and they all enjoy a Twilight Zone marathon.  Henry helps Katie record a screen test for Kim of a new show about single moms. Simon takes her on a date, but has to shift his reservation from Metro to Al’s when he realizes he’s too poor to take Katie out properly.

Noah tells Lily and Luke that his stay with them will be short lived, as he’s seeking out treatment with a Doctor in California who’s been known to return sight to a remarkable number of patients. Noah’s reluctant to reciprocate Luke’s romantic feelings too. When Luke tells Noah he finished his film for him and it won first prize at the student film festival, Noah’s not appreciative and instead interprets Luke’s behavior as controlling.

Meg acts calm and as though she’s been cured by the medication and therapy at Deerbrook. Holden and Molly are thrilled but skeptical. They decide they will go to Kentucky to see if there was any merit to Meg’s claims that Damian lied about knowing Holden wasn’t dead. Molly goes to buy some new clothes from Fashions and runs into Lucinda, who warns Molly to stay away from Holden, since she believes he and Lily are still destined to be together. Molly tells Lucinda that Lily and Holden are over. Meanwhile, Holden goes to find Emma at the hospital, to tell her he’s leaving town for a few days. Instead he runs into Lily, who hasn’t been feeling well all day. A nurse tells Lily her pregnancy results will be in soon. Holden’s shocked she may be pregnant with Damian’s baby.  Lily is at the hospital for a pregnancy test.  Damian finds out and is excited by the prospect.  The test comes back negative but he wants them to have another child, and to take her away from Oakdale.  Lily’s reluctant to do either. Holden goes to Yo’s after hearing about Lily’s pregnancy test. There he kisses Molly, then holds back, then brings her back to his hotel room to make love.  Emily is suspicious of Barbara’s and Mick’s relationship, his bringing her flowers and being her doctor and all.  Emily also wants to be motherly to Eliza, which Paul is quick to discourage.  Paul visits Meg at Deerbrook and sees the progress she’s making, and all the pills she’s not taking.  Meg threatens to kill Damian when she gets out.

Alison and Casey get close, but still decide to hold off until after the wedding.  Alison is working with Dr. Kantor today, a sexist doctor.  He berates Alison with Mick nearby, unseen.  When Ali goes Mick threatens Dr. Kantor and he later makes good with Alison and wants Mick to stay away from him.  Alison goes to visit Mick at the bell tower.  Alison asks Mick to tell her his story, about the nosebleeds, the way he feels.  He explains that he sometimes feels like two people.  Alison must then go to the hospital, but wants Mick to call her.  Emily, going through some paperwork, finds a church circular with phone numbers on it, Paul’s, hers, Alison’s.  She heads over there and finds Mick.  Emily asks why Mick’s so into Paul.  Mick says it’s because Paul’s important.  Emily is worried and Mick uses his penlight to knock her out.  Mick brings her back to Fairwinds where Paul finds her and brings her to the hospital.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
