Henry demands that Vienna tell him what she’s done to Barbara. He thinks she did something to silence Barbara from revealing her pregnancy as fake, before the wedding. Vienna denies, and manages to escape and lock him in the spa room at the Lakeview. Margo and Will arrive to help Henry, off their scenes with Katie in the Police Station where Katie admitted everything she knew about the fake pregnancy.  Alison and Casey bond while babysitting Hallie. Casey gives Ali a quick kiss. Later, at the hospital, Casey finds the recently escaped Vienna in a hospital room. She begs him for help. In the corridor, he runs into Ali who informs him of the police investigation into Vienna’s role in Barbara’s disappearance. Casey brings Margo to the room he saw Vienna in. She’s gone.

At the EOD, Will and Gwen are happily surprised to hear noises coming from inside Barbara’s hotel room. They assume Barbara’s returned, but to their shock, Iris is waiting for them.  Gwen and Will are reluctant to let Hallie bond any more with Iris.  Gwen wishes Iris would just leave.  Iris says she’s there to help.  Also, she’s found religion.  Hallie wants Iris to stay, though.  Iris wants to continue ingratiating herself with Hallie, but Gwen wants Iris on a bus out of town ASAP.  Gwen considers calling the police but Iris reminds her that Barbara would also be implicated.  At EOD, Iris has promised to leave town, making Hallie sad, but alone she books a room at the Wagon Wheel. Lily shows Carly that she closed the deal.  Lily doesn’t tell Carly about Craig’s involvement.  Lily also tells Lucinda about the deal.  Lily hopes Lucinda is proud of her.  Lucinda, a little guilty, says she is always proud of Lily, who is thrilled with this project.  Carly hears from Molly that Lily and Craig were in that motel room together.  It really gets to Carly, who rushes right to Craig and asks him what’s going on.  Craig talks to Holden about this same thing in Java, and Holden is slightly jealous of Craig being with Lily.  Gabriel is happy enough doing the work he’s doing.  Craig tells him he’s destined for bigger things.  Carly asks Lily why it was Craig and not Lily who told Carly that he and Lily were together in New York.  Lily spins the New York encounter with Craig as pure coincidence – and quite friendly.  Lily plays up her “friendship” with Craig to keep Carly from hitting on his business involvement with Carlisle Fragrance.  Craig and Lily kiss and Carly sees.  Carly talks to Jack about Craig and Lily maybe getting together, and Jack maintains that they’re both single and not to concern herself too much.  Lucinda talks to Lily about her denial that she’s okay with Holden, the man she loves, marrying someone else.  Meanwhile, everyone prepares for the bridal shower at Milltown.  At EOD, Lily shows up, unexpectedly excited for it.

Dusty reveals that Blackthorn is working with Craig.  Jack and Dusty are both concerned about the Craig/Blackthorn association, but Dusty spurns Jack’s offer to help get more information on the subject.  By end of day, Jack and Dusty agree to work together to look into the Blackthorn situation for the sake of Janet’s protection, and Dusty stuns Craig by revealing he knows that Craig’s buy-in money for Worldwide came from Blackthorn.  Lucinda wants Dusty to leave the Craig/Blackthorn issue alone, and makes a mysterious call asking someone to return to town that day.  Craig twists the knife with Lucinda; having bought into Worldwide despite what he assumes was her opposition.  Lucinda covers her knowledge of Blackthorn’s association with Craig, but is shaken by Craig’s innuendo about his and Lily’s “closeness.” Craig tells Lucinda it’s time for Lily to feel fulfilled in every way, and coyly suggests he’s ready to help her.  By end of day, Sierra is waiting for Lucinda in her office.  Sierra wonders as to Lucinda’s motives for asking Lucy to come back to town.  Lucinda insists she only wants to help Craig. Craig tells Carly he’s bought into Worldwide and is legit now.  He insists he’s moved on and suggests she do the same.  Carly insists she has moved on – with Jack.  Craig stirs the pot by dangling the notion that he’s gotten closer to Lily.  Lucy is back in town hears that Lucinda wants to help make amends with Craig.  Lucy’s not buying it, since Lucinda has always hated Craig.  Really, Lucinda wants Lucy around to create some space between Craig and Lily.  Lucy also wants to see Johnny.  Lucinda then tells Lucy about Dusty’s on-again, off-again relationship with Janet.  Lucinda calls Francoise one-way to express her hopes that Lucy will be enough to distract Craig.  Lucy finally meets up with Craig and Johnny in Old Town.  Craig hears it was Lucinda that brought Lucy back to Oakdale and he confronts Lucinda about it, who merely says to enjoy the fact that Lucy’s around.  Lucy goes with Johnny to see Dusty.  They’re happy to see each other.  They go to Old Town to get Johnny ice cream and run into Janet.  Dusty is not cold to Janet, but is indifferent. Lily and Faith encounter Holden at the dress shop.  Holden and Lily have an awkward moment and squabble over Lily’s encounter with Craig in New York.  Lily confesses to Holden that Faith in her bridesmaid’s dress made Lily realize Holden’s marriage to Molly is real.  Lily tells Holden she wants to be happy for him in his new marriage, but comes close to admitting that she can’t be.  Molly and Holden meet with the minister for a pre-wedding interview.  The minister asks if Holden still loves Lily.  Holden and Molly touch on their past relationships, but affirm they bring out the best in each other.  Lily tries to smile her way through Molly’s wedding shower, but after hearing how excited Holden is about getting married, and after everything else, Lily just can’t take it any more and has to go.  She leaves Molly’s present on the porch.  Gabriel is thinking of blackmailing Lucinda. Liberty and Parker talk, and Parker admits that no one can ever be a friend like Liberty.  But Liberty was sort of jealous of Parker and Faith.  At EOD, Parker and Faith have gone to the woods, kiss, and are on their way to making love. Blackthorn sees Janet at the diner, asks her out, but she politely turns him down.  He’s playful but insistent.

THE BACHELOR Season Finale: Zach Gets Engaged & In True Origin Franchise Fashion Leaves Another Heartbroken

On last night’s season finale of The Bachelor, it looks like the reality-dating series went back to its roots. The producers found a lead who would revert the show back to its original form.

Zach Shallcross broke a woman’s heart by making her the runner-up in love, and made her show up dressed to the nines to a potential engagement ceremony only to let her down at the most vulnerable moment.

It appears on the surface that the show needed to ensure they had a ‘Bachelor’ that wouldn’t do the right thing, by sending a woman home before the final ceremony, if he knew he didn’t want to be with her in the end.  In Shallcross, they found their man, but it came at a price, because many in ‘Bachelor Nation’ found Zach to be one of the most unlikeable bachelors in the history of the franchise.

In fact, Zach was the very first ‘Bachelor’ since 2017 to choose between two women in the finale and to leave the After the Final Rose post-show with the woman he is ‘engaged’ too.

The woman who deserves props here is Gabi.  She knew in her gut (leading into the engagement ceremony) that she was not the one Zach would ultimately choose, yet she begrudgingly, showed up anyway – this is a TV show she had a contract to be on, after all.   For Gabi, was the one who had sex with Zach during ‘Fantasy Week” initially, and then Zach had to tell Kaity, not Ariel tho, that they had sex together breaking his ‘code’ that he set for ‘sex week’ – in that, he was going to swear off sex with all three women. Apparently, he wound up having sex with two – Gabi and Kaity.

When it came down to Zach’s speech to Gabi, you could hear ‘Bachelor Nation’s’ heart drop when he lowered the boom on Gabi.  Best part, when Gabi stepped into mud getting out of the limo to meet Zach only to be rejected by him and tells the producers, “When Kaity arrives, don’t do that to her.” It’s as if Gabi knew what was ahead of her in a very self-aware moment.

Later, while Zach began is meandering during his rejection speech of her, Gabi announces, “Can you stop? I knew it was coming. What I don’t know is why you didn’t tell me when you knew.” Us either!

During the After the Final Rose episode, an intense and emotional Gabi was struggling after watching herself being dumped. When seeing Zack for the first time since the season ended, Gabi tells him, “I wish you would have just sent me home and saved me all the pain that just went on and on. I thought it was love. I thought it was more than a TV show. I get it, sex sells, but now I’ve become a narrative; it’s really painful.” Heartbreaking.

However, let’s not forget to talk about Kaity, who was the odds-on favorite for weeks to win Zach’s heart, and she did.  In the end, Zach professed his love for her over and over at their engagement ceremony, handed her the final rose which she accepted, and the duo walked away unscathed, for now.

Later, Kaity appeared with Zach for the first time in public during the After the Final Rose episode and Zach revealed his plans to move to Austin, so they could live together.  Will they last? Stay tuned.

So, what did you think about the season finale of The Bachelor? Were you rooting for Gabi or Kaity to receive the final rose from Zach? Comment below.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown: Rey Mysterio Pushed to the Limits ‘Clocks’ His Son Dominik & Their Wrestlemania Match is Set

When the WWE tells storylines involving family of a wrestler, it succeeds the most in true soap opera form, and in front of a live crowd.  This one set up a major Wrestlemania match months in the making.

Last night on Friday Night Smackdown, soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer, Rey Mysterio, was in a match against LA Knight. Coming to ringside was none other than Rey’s turned-heel son, and member of the Judgement Day, Dominik Mysterio.

When Dominik got the opportunity, he tripped up his dad from outside the ring ropes and LA Knight secured the victory.  Already having enough of Dominik’s antics, Rey heads up towards the entrance ramp, but once again Dominik goes on to bait his dad, about what a loser father he is, and how all the years he was growing up, Rey was MIA and wrestling around the world.

For weeks, the younger Mysterio has been daring his father to punch him, but Rey swore he would never touch his son, no matter how bad things got.  However, that all changed last night when Dominik involved Rey’s wife and his daughter who were at ringside.

Dominik got in his mother’s face for staying married to a loser like Rey, and after trashing his mother, that was the final straw for Rey.  He headed back to the ring area and punched his son!  After the crowd went nuts with approval, Rey turned to Dominik and told him he will see him at Wrestlemania and the match between father vs. son has been made.

Following the events, Rey took to his Instagram and shared:  “Every man has his limits…Don’t forget, she’s not only your mother, but my wife.”

Watch went down below as Dominik provoked Rey which leads to next week’s Wrestlemania 39 match in Los Angeles.

What do you think of the storyline of Rey vs. Dominik, father vs. son? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown: Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn Hug It Out and Reunite

When you can get the kind of ‘pop’ that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn received in front of a live crowd on Friday night’s edition of WWE Smackdown, you know you have struck gold.

Truthfully, this storyline has got so much emotional heart at its epicenter that you find yourself rooting for the two friends to finally put aside their differences.

With Cody Rhodes attempting to mend fences between the estranged besties, it ultimately failed, or did it?  After KO walked out of the arena, he was about to get in his car and drive off when a distraught Sami ran after him. Sami pleaded with Kevin, sharing, that they are ‘brothers’ and that he loves him, and that this is not all just about wanting to repair their friendship just to go after the Usos. KO heard him out, but was silent and eventually drove off.

From there, it looked like it was going to be very bad night for Zayn. Not only was his friendship with Owens in question, but he had to head to the ring for a confrontation with enemy-turned-friend (or so he thought), Jey Uso.

In another great in-ring performance, Jey takes to the mic and unloads on Zayn.  Jey says he was betrayed by Sami, and had no choice but to eventually go back and side with The Bloodline. Just then, Sami took the mic and told Jey he did have a choice, but instead he chose to put up with Roman Reigns’ abuse for weeks.  Sami admits he loved being part of the Uso family and The Bloodline, but he wasn’t willing to stand for Reigns’ manipulations any longer.  He even goes on to say that Jey secretly wishes that he had delivered the chair shot to Reigns at the Royal Rumble.

All of that said was not enough to steer Jey back to Sami’s side, and from there all communication broke down.  Zayn was manhandled by both Jey and his brother, Jimmy Uso.  However, Kevin Owens returned when his music hit … but not down the ramp, he was already in the ring behind the Usos.

Shocked, Owens delivered a stunner and powerbomb to the brothers Uso. After the ring was cleared of Usos, the crowd started chanting in unison “hug it out” as Cody Rhodes watched on a monitor from the back with a smile on his face and a bit overcome.

Finally, Kevin went in to hug Sami, the crowd went nuts, the friends are back together, and we wouldn’t be surprised one bit if this week the WWE will announce that it will be Owens and Zayn vs. The Usos for the Tag Team titles at Wrestlemania 39 in just a few short weeks.

Take a look at the dramatic moments leading up to the reunion of Kevin and Sami below.

Now let us know, where you happy to see Kevin come to Sami’s aid and hug it out with his best friend? Comment below.
