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.

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.
