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.

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!”

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..
