Jack calls Dusty on moving in on his family too soon, even willing to fight over it.  They cool off when Liberty has called Janet and needs to see her.  Dusty, Janet, Jack and Carly fly up to Minnesota to see Liberty and Parker.  A decision has to be made about continuing Liberty’s treatment. Liberty wants to keep going with it.  Dusty would cover it but Jack insists he (Jack) make sure his insurance will cover it. Janet tells Liberty she’s pregnant and Liberty is livid with Jack for letting this happen.  Janet consoles Liberty and explains it’s not just about the chance for a donor.  Dusty asks for a minute alone and asks/tells Liberty he wants to marry Janet.  Liberty’s moved and calls Janet in, and Dusty gives Janet a ring, as Jack enters.  Jack’s a mensch about it. Carly has taken Parker off and tells him she won’t let anything get between her and Jack again.  At EOD, Jack and Carly enjoy the idea of being together. Vienna has a drink with Barbara and Henry.  Barbara doesn’t tell Vienna about her and Henry’s recent affair.  Henry is appreciative.  Vienna finds an earring in her bed, but she’s okay with it since she and Henry were broken up.  But Vienna wants Henry to make love to her and he resists her. Katie wants to seal the deal with Henry so he can’t back out of donating the money to the hospital. She and Reid get Henry to write the check in front of them and Vienna – who can’t wait to fall in love all over again with a new and improved Henry. They go to WOAK so Katie can do a piece about the new wing of the hospital to be named after Brad. Kim and Bob are there for the segment of the show, and Barbara’s tagged along. When Henry and Barbara run into each other they share a heated moment and Barbara almost tells Henry she loves him. After they finish taping, they go to the Lakeview to celebrate. There, Henry and Barbara talk in the elevator and share that they just want someone to love them for who they are, not who they are supposed be. They almost kiss, but the elevator opens and Barbara makes a quick exit. Henry avoids Vienna, who’s looking for him.

Chris runs into Ali, who’s standoffish and insists they can’t be close because of the way she’s treated his family, particularly Chris and Casey. Chris insists no one holds a grudge, but Ali’s determined to keep their relationship professional. Bob, Kim and Katie are suspicious about Chris’ feelings towards Alison. Luke tells Noah that if Noah can’t commit to him wholeheartedly then they can’t be together. Noah admits that he can’t give Luke what he wants and they share a regretful goodbye. Luke runs into Reid, but won’t give him the satisfaction of knowing that Luke and Noah broke up. A stranger confronts Reid for being a murderer. Alison runs into dejected Noah, and offers to be his roommate. He takes her up on it.

Emily doesn’t correct Eliza when she calls her “Mama” as they shop in Fashions. When Emily spots Meg in Old Town, she panics, but Meg quickly assures her that she’s allowed to be out and about – the Deerbrook patients are on a supervised trip to town. Paul joins them and Eliza makes everyone uncomfortable by calling Emily “Mama” again. Meg takes Eliza and she and Paul spend some quality time together. Paul returns home to Emily and asks her if she minded that he spent so much time with Meg. Emily assures him she’s ok with it, and Paul gently urges her to keep her relationship with Eliza realistic and not send her confusing messages. Emily’s somewhat defensive. Meanwhile, back at Deerbrook, Meg tells her therapist she’d like to take the next step and have an overnight with her daughter.

Luke watches as an old client of Reid’s attacks him and accuses him of killing his daughter. Luke follows Reid after the ambush, but Reid won’t give him any details about the history of the incident. Reid takes out his frustration on a nurse. Luke goes home, but missed reuniting with Holden who has taken Faith back to school with Lily. Lucinda’s there watching the kids and she consoles him about his break–up with Noah. Lucinda goes, but Luke notices someone out on the terrace and hoping its Noah, he rushes out. It’s Reid. Reid admits the daughter of Judd, the guy who attacked him, did die under his watch – but only because the tumor she had was inoperable, and while he did give a year she wouldn’t have had otherwise, he still feels guilty. Luke tells Reid he respects him as a doctor. Reid’s flattered and assures Luke he won’t murder Noah. Luke tells Reid they broke-up and Reid winds up insulting Luke instead of consoling him. They share a moment fraught with sexual tension, and Reid goes. Molly discovers Faith was suspended from school. Faith tells Molly she’ll tell Lily and Holden herself. Instead Faith lets them drop her off back at school. When Lily and Holden return home, Molly realizes Faith didn’t confide in them. Molly tells them that Faith was suspended for drug use. Lily and Holden are horrified and much to Molly’s displeasure, Lily takes comfort in Holden’s arms.

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.
