Henry learns Vienna was never pregnant from Katie. He calls Vienna out for lying to him. Vienna tries to defend her behavior but Henry will have none of it. Vienna calls Katie and yells at her for revealing the truth. Henry bangs on Barbara’s door to no avail. He leaves her a message begging her to come back to him. Vienna swears to herself that she’ll find a way to get Henry back.  Katie feels lousy for misleading Henry. Chris comforts her.   Will can’t let go of his gut feeling that something’s wrong with Barbara. Jack promised to look into it. At the EOD, Gwen stumbles across Barbara’s abandoned passport.   Katie and Vienna both want to talk to Henry.  He opens his hotel room door and asks to speak with Vienna alone.  He’s furious with her and her lie and wants an annulment, or if it comes to it, a divorce.  Vienna is angry, says fine, marry Barbara – if he can find her.  Henry is also furious with Katie, who tries to talk to him downstairs.  Henry tries to go see Barbara, but she’s not in her room.  Katie tells him that Barbara knew about Vienna’s secret.  Henry presumes she might have been kidnapped so as not to stop the wedding.  He sees Vienna while she’s ready for a massage, threatens her and asks where Barbara is.  Barbara has a Henry VIII fantasy in the warehouse.  Paul and Emily, and Gwen and Will, are in the fantasy too, all explaining why Barbara deserves punishment.  But she defends herself.  She rouses from the fantasy, puts down the clown, and sets her mind to escaping.  Will goes to Margo about Barbara.  Margo has heard that Barbara hasn’t left the country and she’ll now be considered a missing person.  Will and Emily argue about Barbara.  Gwen and Will then go to the Lakeview, where they find a maid has found Barbara’s phone.  Paul just wishes Barbara would call, while Emily wouldn’t mind if she didn’t.

Lily graciously tells Holden she’ll help with the kids for Holden and Molly’s wedding. She admits to Craig, that pretending to be happy for Holden is slowly killing her. He suggests she and Carly go to New York to sign the contract for the perfume factory. Carly’s game and Lily’s excited. Craig encourages Lily to continue pretending Craig’s not involved with the perfume company. He’d like to prove to himself and the world that he can become a better person.  Dusty’s glum that Craig’s keeping Johnny at an arm’s length. Luckily, Janet runs into Johnny’s babysitter and convinces her to let Janet care for Johnny for the day. Dusty’s thrilled to have lunch with Johnny. They all go to a movie and Dusty and Janet can’t deny the current between them. At the EOD, Dusty asks Janet to dine with him at Metro that night.  Anthony Blackthorn shows up and knows Jan, from his life as Tony Nero.  Dusty is rubbed the wrong way by this guy and invokes Ralph, which upsets Janet.   Jack and Carly go to Metro for a date and see Dusty and Janet there.  Janet’s receptive to Dusty’s flirting. Dusty still doesn’t like Blackthorns presence in Janet’s life, but she insists their relationship is innocent. Dusty tells Lucinda that Blackthorn’s been acting like he’s involved with Worldwide. Lucinda berates Blackthorn for not keeping his eye on the prize – ruining Craig. Dusty asks his executive assistant to investigate Blackthorn.   Carly finally hears that Janet and Liberty will be living in the cabin at the Snyder Farm and is upset at Jack for not telling her.  Jack absolutely cares for Carly, and kisses her, and would make love to her but Carly stops him, displeased with how things are right now.  Craig and Lily are in New York because of a baggage handlers’ strike.  The power in the motel goes out and with it the AC.  So Craig and Lily must improvise things to do, eat and how to stay cool.  Lily rubs some ice on herself and then Craig gets her back, asking aloud why they never got together.  Parker mopes around the farm watching Liberty and Faith work with Gabriel. Jack goes to Carly to see what they can do about Parker finding a summer job. Parker gets a commercial offered to him, and Carly agrees to stay in town so he can do it. Lily’s freaked out that Carly won’t be joining her in New York to sign the contract for the perfume factory. So she asks Craig to come along. Craig obliges her and they sign the contract with Francoise. Due to a baggage strike, all flights are grounded in New York and Lily and Craig must share a hotel room. Meanwhile, Jack and Carly bond over the success of their son. At the EOD, Jack asks Carly to dinner at Metro too.  Faith follows Parker to the commercial shoot and they flirt. Much to Gabriel’s disappointment, Liberty’s also compelled to go to the shoot, but leaves quickly when she sees Parker and Faith flirting.  Lily and Craig wake up in NY and Francoise catches them in semi-undress. They insist it’s not what it looks like – they just sleep in few clothes because the power and therefore air-conditioning was out. Francoise sends an incriminating photo to Lucinda.  Lucinda’s furious, and places a one-way phone call asking someone to return home.  Lucinda also let’s Holden know that Lily’s stuck in NY. When Holden calls to check in with her, Craig answers the phone. Holden’s suspicious but both Lily and Craig maintain they simply ran into each other in NY. Molly’s perturbed that Holden’s still affected by Lily’s love life. Holden claims he’s just concerned about his children. Bob turns down Mona Cross’ and Invicta’s offer to buy the hospital when she’s put off by Reid and Luke even though they aren’t and weren’t in a relationship when the money was donated.  He asks Reid to consider replacing him after working on his people skills.  Bob tells Kim he’s eyeing Reid for the job and she gets very upset at his choice.

‘Dynasty’ Season Two Finale: Double-Cross Upon Double-Cross; Two Bodies Dredged From The Water, Another Goes Into The Pool

On Friday night’s CW Dynasty season two finale, in true “soap opera on steroid” fashion; you needed a scorecard to check who was zoomin’ who! There was plenty of backstabbing, murderous intent, deceit and more, culminating in the re-wedding of Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal (Ana Brenda Contreras) with the lake and a pool set as a major backdrop on how viewers will be left wanting to know the outcome in this juicy cliffhanger.  But alas, folks! You will have to wait for the series upcoming third season to get all the answers.

And we just got to say, Elizabeth Gilles (Fallon) is a gem and the show would not be the same without her, but here’s how things were left for the Carringtons and company as we fade to black on the climatic final moments.

Sicko bad boy, Adam (Sam Underwood) has serious anger management issues.  When Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) learns the news that he has neurological disease, caused by the poison he ingested thanks to Adam, and that he will die, he puts a plan in motion.  He stages his own death. We believe Adam killed him, but in actuality it is revealed he was in cahoots with Dominique (Michael Michele).  After we see the flashback (as Jeff is heading to the Bahamas with the secret that he is dying), he knows they have Adam’s cuff-link planted at the scene of the crime that will do him in.  He says goodbye to his mother and sister and boards a plane.  But then, Dominique shows us that she went back and grabbed Adam’s cuff-link and is in cahoots with Blake.  She threw her own son under the bus!

Liam (Adam Huber) and Fallon have gotten oh-so-close, but not before Adam plants a letter on Fallon’s desk that Liam fathered a child … and later Fallon comes clean that during a drunken high school binge with a friend, the two got in an argument and the girl fell down a flight of stairs and the family covered it up.  Adam overheard the whole thing.  Next, Liam and Fallon go to the water in a row boat where Fallon proposes to him, with a valuable family ring from Liam’s family.  After Liam accepts the proposal, they make-out and the ring drops into the water.  Later, when Liam confronts Adam about the letter he knows he left for Fallon; Adam clubs Liam in the head and locks him up just outside the pool at the mansion.  Liam was about to expose Adam for all his lies and crimes.

Later, a shocked Fallon sees that her father and Cristal are getting re-married and their counter attack on Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) has worked.  Culhane is being arrested by the feds.  Fallon sold her company to Kirby (Maddison Brown) for $1 dollar to help reunite with her father in business, but since her father double-crossed her, she tells Kirby she wants her business back.  Kirby says she is not selling it back, because she tried to get Culhane to break up with her. Then, Blake demands Anders (Alan Dale) marry him and Cristal now, but Anders refuses.  He already made a deal with Sammy Jo (Rafael de La Fuente) to help run the hotel and is leaving Blake’s employ following his recent hospital stay and health scare.

All of a sudden, the divers who Adam hired to locate the MIA engagement ring, find two bodies in the water. Blake mutters that he knows who one of them is. Adam flashes back to a scene with Steven (James MacKay), where Steven tells him how the young girl’s death was covered up.  And yup, it was revealed that one of the bodies was the young girl that Fallon got into the drunken altercation with all those years ago.  The second boy has not been ID’d yet.  This is juxtaposed with Liam, who has made it out of lock-up by the pool.  He screams “Fallon” but he is so disoriented that he eventually falls into the pool face first, and all we can assume is that he has drowned.  But, will he be rescued?  Who will the second body turn out to be that was found in the lake? And … when will Adam and Alexis (Elizabeth Gilles) put their plan into motion? When we last saw Alexis a few episodes ago, we saw that she has a brand new face, identical to that of Fallon’s!  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of the season two finale of Dynasty? Comment below!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Unmasked! The Part Of Nicole Walker Is Now Being Played By Kristen DiMera

On Friday, NBC’s Days of our Lives delivered quite the cliffhanger as fans go into the Memorial Day Weekend.  There had been plenty of speculation that something just wasn’t quite right with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) since her “return from the dead” to Salem.  Leave it to head writer, Ron Carlivati to come up with an exciting twist …  and he did!

As it turns out, that isn’t Nicole after all, but Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) wearing a very convincing Nicole mask and weaving her plot while under wraps; chief among those plots is to nab Brady (Eric Martsolf) as her man; once and for all.

In story, at the Salem Inn, “Nicole” kisses Brady.  At first he responds, but then backs off, until “Nicole” yelps, “Damn it, Brady! Why are you fighting me on this? Just forget about Holly.”  Brady is stunned! “Nicole” says she wants to escape the pain of losing her daughter, but Brady leaves and “Nicole” smashes a vase.

Later at the Inn, Xander (Paul Telfer) hands over Holly’s hospital records.  Meanwhile, “Nicole” tells her accomplice all about the memorial service and how devastated Eric (Greg Vaughn ) was, and how bad she wants to be with Brady.  Admitting Brady currently rejected her, she says it’s only a matter of time before he gives in to her seductions.

Next, we see “Nicole” ripping a mask from her face, just as Xander announces that Nicole is being played by “Kristen DiMera” and smirks.  Meanwhile, Kristen emerges from under the mask, free at last as her wig comes off as she lets down her hair.   Thus, the pieces all are starting to fit together.

Kudos to Arianne Zucker for playing Nicole and Kristen as Nicole, and we can’t wait to see Stacy Haiduk as the conniving Kristen as this story unfolds.

Watch a promo for next week’s DAYS below.  Then let us know, what you thought of the twist: that Kristen is pretending to be Nicole, via the comment section below..

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Four: Joss Sings For Oscar, Valentin Takes The Stage, Kevin In Dire ‘Straits’, Ava Waits For Ryan

The conclusion of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 episodes brought with it emotional moments and performances from the stage, and major drama with yet to come ramifications for several people of Port Charles.

After Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) knocked out Kevin and switched places with him, yet again, the serial killer is on the loose at the ball. Later, when Scott (Kin Shriner) is backstage and is upset about Ava’s (Maura West) relationship with Kevin, Scott comes face-to-face with “Kevin” and having enough, tries to grab Scott’s hand to stop him from leaving. But, lo and behold, off comes his prosthetic hand.  Next, Ryan clubs Scott over the head, who now is the only person that saw Ryan at the ball.

Elsewhere, Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) confronts Willow (Katelyn MacMullan), after overhearing her conversation with Diane that she has a child, and he asks here if she was pregnant when she left “Dawn of Day”.  She claims she miscarried their child, but he refuses to believe a word out of her mouth and becomes irate.

Michael (Chad Duell) saves Willow and warns Shiloh to stay away from her and his family. An out-of-sorts Shiloh heads back to his table where Sam (Kelly Monaco), Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and Brad (Parry Shen) are.  Shiloh informs Sam that he just found out someone had his baby and deceived him.  Lucas and Brad are both alarmed.

The first musical performance of the episode was Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) rendition of Seals & Crofts classic, “Get Closer”.  Wally Kurth and Lisa LoCicero remain one of the endearing duos on the show.

Meanwhile, the question. and of course. the big musical finale hinged on Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), and if she would perform the song she wrote with Oscar (Garren Stitt) at his request and in his honor.  In the best scene of all the ball episodes this year, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds a conflicted Joss outside the ballroom.  She says she thought she was stronger and could do this, but she isn’t.  An emotional Sonny shares with her how Oscar will always be with her, and be OK with whatever choice she makes. Sonny relates it back to Stone and his relationship with him while the young man was living and while he has been deceased.  Maurice Benard and Eden McCoy delivered in this tender scene.

In the next musical number, Valentin Cassasdine (James Patrick Stuart) attempts to calm down a drunken Nina (Michelle Stafford), who is all out of sorts due to her hatred of Willow.(and perhaps her lust for Jax?), by taking to the stage to perform his number.  This time, Stuart plays the piano and sings “Nothing without You” by Vienna Tang.  And once again, Valentin wowed the audience, and James sang beautifully, as he has each year at the ball.

Still undecided if she can perform, Josslyn worries she’s letting everyone down. Jax (Ingo Rademacher) comes to see her and reassures her, saying she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone, she just needs to follow her heart.

Finally, Josslyn makes the decision to perform, and that she does in the emotional high point of the episode.  As she performs this song about the list of things she and Oscar were planning to do together before the young man died, and how she will carry it with her, she sees Oscar in the back of the ballroom in his tux singing with her and rooting her on.  Kudos to Eden McCoy for being the heartbeat of this year’s ball, along with Lynn Herring, who the ‘ball’ would not be the ball without Lucy Coe,

As the Nurses’ Ball winds down, Shiloh is becoming unglued, and as Sam tries to calm him down, he tells her she needs to finish her initiation tonight.  He says he needs her to be in the ‘trust’ and he needs her strength.  Oh-oh!  Will Sam go through with this to trap the guy, or are we going to witness a major backfire?

A massive light bulb has gone off in Lucas’ head and he tells Brad he believes Willow and Shiloh are Wylie’s birth parents. Brad doesn’t know what to say, and we all know why!

As Lucy is instructing the clean up crew to take everything down on the stage, the curtains open and Kevin is suspended in midair hoisted up, knocked out, and trapped in a straight-jacket!  Everyone is horrified.  Cut to Ava who is at her safe house preparing to kill Ryan all by herself.  She gets everything in place, while she sips on some booze and waits for Ryan to arrive, and sure enough, we come to the cliffhanger.   Ryan sees Ava from outside the widow.  What will happen next?

So, what did you think of the final installment of this year’s Nurses Ball? What did you think of the performances from Joss, Valentin, and Ned and Olivia? Will Ava kill Ryan, or will someone else do it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first,check out Josslyn’s AKA Eden McCoy’s performance below.
