Carly and Jack go on a walk. In the woods they stumble across intimate Parker and Faith. Carly and Jack stand back while Parker stops his and Faith’s hook up before things escalate. Parker and Faith candidly share how upset they are about their parent’s rocky love lives. Carly and Jack are affected, make some noise and Parker and Faith rush to cover themselves. Carly takes Faith back to the farm, where Faith doesn’t respond very positively to Carly’s words of hope regarding love. Carly returns to Milltown where Jack and Parker have cleaned up the bridal shower. Carly’s shaken by Faith’s glum attitude toward love, but Jack reassures her that they are headed down the right path and that they are meant to be together. Chris tries to reassure Katie that he will be an unchanging presence in her life. She denies, but he stands firm and asks her to meet him halfway. Chris goes to Bob and Kim and affirms his desire to set roots in Oakdale by being considered to take over as Chief of Staff of Memorial when Bob steps down. Bob will have to submit Chris’s name to the board as well as Reid’s. Chris tells Tom that he’s interested in Katie and replacing Bob as Chief of Memorial. Tom’s realistic but positive. Katie meanwhile, breaks down in Margo’s arms about her inability to get over Brad. When Tom tells Margo that Chris has his sights set on Katie, she’s apprehensive and worries that Katie and he do not a match in heaven make. But, later, Chris helps Katie make inroads with Henry.  Katie helps Henry appeal to Barbara on WOAK. He frantically searches around Old Town and Barbara’s bedroom when a few calls come in stating people saw someone like Barbara in town. Henry’s convinced, by the presence of Barbara’s perfume/lipstick, that she’s around – just hiding from Henry to torment him. Katie’s alarmed by Henry’s intense behavior.  Katie encourages Henry to admit that Barbara has turned her back on him. Luke tries to teach Reid people skills but fails.

Barbara’s credit card is used at a lingerie store, so Paul and Henry investigate. The store owner doesn’t recognize the picture of Barbara they show her. Later, the store owner calls Emily at home to say that she found an expensive bracelet at her store – that could’ve been Barbara’s. Emily picks up the bracelet, but (furious with the way Barbara’s treated her over the years) decides to get rid of the potential evidence. Paul catches her throwing away the bracelet.  Gwen and Will speculate whether or not Emily and Paul are capable of being behind Barbara’s disappearance.    Will arrives at Fairwinds in time to hear that Emily tried to destroy potential evidence – Barbara’s bracelet. Will, Paul and Emily all accuse each other of their past crimes. Will admits to himself that he can’t be one to judge, when Gwen arrives off of just having seen Iris. Much to Will’s displeasure, Gwen has agreed to let Iris help in the search for Barbara.

Barbara’s visited by hallucinations of James, Henry, Paul and Will, none of whom can help her. Barbara vows to save herself. Barbara’s shocked to see someone who’s not a hallucination at the door – Iris.  Iris lets Barbara write a note to let everyone know that she’s alive and okay.  Iris leaves Barbara there, then goes to Old Town to put up missing posters etc. and sees Will and Gwen there.  Iris lauds the power of positive thinking and they go to Al’s.  Paul and everyone at Fairwinds reads it, and figures it’s the real deal.  Meanwhile, Gwen, Will and Hallie had been looking through Emily’s room for proof that she’s responsible for Barbara having gone missing.  Emily finds them there and she and Paul are upset by the others’ suspicion. Lucy runs into Janet in the hospital. She goes to see Dusty and informs him that she saw Janet with another man.  Lucy tries to apologize to Dusty later, and they wind up in an electric embrace. At the EOD, they are on their way to making love.  Craig helps cheer Lily up while she avoids Holden and Molly’s rehearsal dinner. When news arrives that another catastrophe has struck the perfume factory Lily impulsively decides to go to France. Worried Francoise calls Lucinda, but Lucinda thinks it’s time the whole lie blew up. Lily arrives in France only to discover there is no perfume factory. Crestfallen, she turns around to find Craig has followed her there. Holden and Molly are thrilled to welcome Abigail back to Oakdale for their wedding. Lucinda calls Holden during the rehearsal dinner to inform him that Lily may be walking into a trap in France. The women all retire to Milltown after the dinner, but Holden’s determined to rescue Lily overnight and be back in time for the wedding. Jack confides this information to Carly, who’s horrified he let Holden fly away.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Dancing with the Stars

‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justina Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.
