Carly finishes telling Jack about Janet and Dusty, how upset it makes her to see Jack torture himself when this is going on.  Carly thinks this changes everything, but Jack disagrees. There’s still family to think about.  Jack has to go work it out.  Jack goes to Metro to see Dusty but hears he’s out of town, and guesses Minneapolis.  Dusty, meanwhile, has been there for Janet and Liberty.  Liberty prepares for a treatment and Janet stays behind.  Dusty returns to the hotel to find Jack there wanting to discuss the Janet situation.  Jack defends his marriage while Dusty criticizes that they haven’t been there for each other.  Dusty admits he’s in love with Janet, just before Janet arrives. Craig’s livid to discover Carly’s only dragged him to Minnesota so she can go after Jack. He locks her in the hotel room. Meanwhile, Jack confronts Janet and Dusty about their infidelity. Dusty claims that he loves Janet. Janet won’t beg for Jack to forgive her, because all she can do is focus on Liberty. Carly interrupts their conversation, having broke out the hotel room. Craig joins the group as well, just as Carly tells all that Jack planned to return to her, and leave Janet, before he found out that Liberty was sick. Janet’s upset by this news, and even more upset that everyone else seemed to be informed but her. Carly says now that the truths out everyone can be with who they want to be, but Dusty notes it’s not that simple. Jack forces everyone out so he can talk to Janet alone. Janet asks him point blank if he’s in love with Carly and he says yes. Janet and Jack agree they should get that annulment, but Janet still wants to have a baby for Liberty. Dusty and Craig try to drink their sorrows away, while Carly settles for a chocolate bar. Carly looks into IVF and runs the idea past Janet and Jack.  She thinks it’s an ideal solution for Jack and Janet to have the child they’re looking for without actually sleeping together, which would sadden Carly.  Janet considers it, but isn’t sure about the idea of quintuplets.  Carly suggests giving them away, which Janet passes along to Jack, who himself isn’t sure he could do that.  Dusty looks to Jen for her blessing of Dusty’s wanting Janet. Craig gives Parker limited access to his own trust fund, to be used with Jack and Carly’s permission.  Parker goes to Minneapolis to visit Liberty, despite her wishes.  He goes and makes her laugh, takes some of the edge off.   Dusty asks Janet to marry him.  He’s tired of the way things are among Jack, Janet and Carly.  Janet is so surprised she faints.  They go to the hospital.  Liberty has spoken to Jack and pleaded with him not to bring a child into the world under these particular circumstances.  It wouldn’t be good for the baby, or Liberty, or the kid’s parents, really.  Jack then comes in to the hospital and tells Janet he can’t give her a baby.  Later, Janet hears that she’s pregnant. 

Reid suggests to Katie that she take Henry’s offer of the Stenbeck fortune.  Barbara and Henry have enjoyed another romantic night, when Katie is there to talk to Henry.  Henry makes Barbara hide, which makes her realize Henry cares what Katie thinks about them.  Katie comes in, putting it together and insulting Henry’s taste in women (which irks a hiding Barbara).  Barbara is angry with Henry, and storms out, slamming the door on his hand.  Barbara then confronts Katie about the money, and Katie knows Henry told Barbara about their own conversations.  Henry goes to the hospital and reluctantly receives treatment from Reid.  Reid is direct with Henry, saying flat out that Henry himself thinks he’s not good enough for Katie.  Katie then cooks Reid an organic dinner and says she’ll miss him, if tomorrow’s hearing goes well for him and he leaves. Reid has a hearing about whether or not he can leave town. Bob and Kim stand up for Reid, much to Reid’s surprise. Luke tells the judge that he should have never pressed charges to begin with. The judge would drop Reid’s case, but Henry says Reid is a criminal for keeping him hostage with a fake diagnosis of TB. The judge let’s Reid go despite Henry’s charges. Katie’s delighted for Reid and livid at Henry. Reid tells Bob he’d stay if the hospital had better facilities, but Bob says they don’t have the funding. Katie asks Henry to donate his money to the hospital. Henry won’t. At the hospital Reid thanks Luke for standing up for him in the court room. There’s a thaw between them, until Reid lets it drop that he is indeed going to leave town now that he has the opportunity too. Luke’s upset, thought Reid wouldn’t abandon Noah’s case. Reid tells Luke that Noah’s going to Dallas with him. Luke confronts Noah, but Noah assures Luke that it’s not about their relationship, it’s about Noah gaining some independence and moving on with his life. Luke begs Reid not to leave, but Reid tells Luke he’s going to make Noah well and that’s the point. Devastated, Luke lets him walk away.

Faith’s in trouble at school for having pot. The headmistress calls her in, and Damian’s there, pretending to be her father. He gets her off the hook, on the condition she comes with him. Damian tells Faith she must work for him, in order to clear Holden’s name. She reluctantly agrees. Molly visits Holden in jail and they agree Damian must’ve set up the body to be identified as his as some part of his scheme. Lily arrives and Molly takes her leave. Lily brings Natalie and Ethan and Holden’s touched. Lily tells Holden she’s behind him. Holden tells her to take the kids and leave town, but Lily won’t abandon him or Damian’s case. Lily’s thrilled Faith’s returned home, not realizing Faith’s return was set up by Damian. Lily and Faith go to visit Holden, and Damian tries to break into Lily’s house, but the presence of the security guard scares him off. Faith’s really upset by seeing Holden in prison and when she gets a text from Damian, as “Max”, she runs out explaining she must take her English Literature exam as an oral on the phone. Faith runs right into Molly, who’s concerned about her. Faith blows Molly off and goes to Damian. Faith asks Damian when he’s going to be able to let people know he’s not dead so Holden can get out of jail. Damian promises he’ll do it soon. Meanwhile, back at the police station, Molly relays to Holden about her run in with an agitated Faith. Holden tells Molly Faith had to run off and take a English Literature exam, and Molly’s suspicions are aroused since when she spoke to Faith, Faith had said she was busy with a Chemistry exam. Holden urges Molly to reach out to a clearly troubled Faith. Back at Lily’s Faith distracts the security guard so Damian can sneak in the house and talk to Lily. Faith tries to divert the security guard to let Damian in to see Lily, but it doesn’t quite work, also because Molly comes in to see Lily about Faith.  Molly continues to be curious about Faith, and so calls the headmistress at Faith’s boarding school.  Molly hears that Faith’s father was there to pick her up, and Molly is startled and confused.  Faith apologizes to Damian for not affording him the chance to see Lily.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
