Henry wakes up from a nap to find himself handcuffed to the bed. Henry resists Vienna’s romantic overtures, when he’s saved by a knock on the door – Barbara. Barbara’s come with wedding dress materiel samples, which Vienna examines in the bathroom, leaving Henry in a compromising position in front of Barbara. Uneasy Barbara helps Henry out of his handcuffs, when Vienna returns with a big hug for Barbara. Barbara leaves, and Henry accuses Vienna of keeping him hostage so she can try to get pregnant without Henry’s consent. Henry and Vienna continue their fight about Vienna tricking him into having a child. Henry admits he can’t rush into getting married and tells Vienna he needs space. They should stay in separate rooms. Henry goes to Katie for advice, and she tells him to after what makes him happy. Vienna drowns her sorrows in vodka at Yo’s. Meanwhile, Barbara goes on a blind lunch date with Rex, an anchor Katie knows at WOAK. Rex is full of himself, but Joe, a handsome pilot, helps Barbara escape her date, in exchange for dining with him. They enjoy each other’s company until Barbara drops Henry’s name one too many times. Barbara apologizes and Joe forgives her. Henry walks in and it’s clear he’s going after Barbara – she’s who makes him happy. Henry’s surprised to see Barbara with a handsome older man.  Back at Yo’s Vienna’s found company – Casey – freshly stung from seeing Ali and Chris hanging out together. Vienna realizes Casey has the same physical features as Henry, so she liquors him up and suggests they leave together. Henry scares off Barbara’s date, then takes her to Yo’s for a disco dance contest.  They’re tied with another couple when the woman hurts her leg and Henry/Barbara win by default. Vienna and Casey have unprotected sex.  Casey’s cool with it as long as they don’t kid themselves.  Vienna hopes she gets pregnant.

Carly finds distraught Craig in the boiler room. He drunkenly acts apologetic for what happened to Gabriel. Carly puts it together that Craig burned down Monte Carlo to get the insurance money. Carly takes Craig back to his hotel room after he’s gotten even more drunk at Yo’s. He passes out and she prints out evidence from his computer that he stole from Parker’s trust fund. Carly tells Margo to come over and take care of her drunk brother. Carly goes home where she tries to keep Parker calm, but he’s about to explode with the secret that he and Gabriel fought before the fire. The doctor says it doesn’t look good for Gabriel. Margo goes to Craig’s room, off Carly’s call, and finds the evidence that he stole from Parker’s trust fund. Jack encourages Janet not to go back to work so soon after returning from her father’s funeral. Janet needs to make money to get her own place and move out of Carly’s. Dusty interviews new hostesses but is unable to accept anyone but Janet for the position. He’s thrilled when she arrives to work. They both bond over Janet’s baby kicking for the first time. So does Jack when he arrives, making Dusty slightly jealous. Janet tells Dusty she will have to get a different job and make more money. Dusty offers to give her a raise, but Janet doesn’t want a hand out. Janet starts to move into her new apartment. Dusty continues to secretly fund her move and make her life easy by paying the landlord to watch over her. Janet walks up to Dusty as he’s negotiating with the landlord and asks him why he’s there.  Meanwhile, Carly schools Parker in lying, so he’ll be able to react convincingly when confronted about his trust fund having been emptied.  Jack tells him, and Parker does a great job.  Carly wants to go to the police station to hear what Craig has to say, and when she gets there, she knees him.  Privately, Craig says he did it for her, thinking he’d be able to replace the money.  Meanwhile, Jack and Margo go over Craig’s records and see a private jet ride from Oakdale to Melrose Park that Jack says was Gabriel.  Margo then surmises Gabriel was blackmailing Craig, and Craig might have done anything to get rid of his blackmailer, and make some money back. Jack’s semi convinced Craig’s telling the truth about never attempting to harm Gabriel. Parker’s spooked that Jack will quickly put together that Parker was responsible for knocking Gabriel out. Carly tries to calm him down, but Parker panics that he’ll never be able to keep the truth from Jack each time they run into each other at Milltown. Carly tells Jack that he must move out, but uses his need to live near Janet as an excuse. Craig gets out on bail, and flips out on Dusty for allowing Johnny to sprain his wrist while he was gone. Craig finds a guilty Parker in Gabriel’s hospital room at the EOD, but Gabriel’s gone. A nurse tells them Gabriel was removed due to a life-threatening crisis. Lucinda and Lily argue. Lucinda thinks Lily should use this time of crisis to reel in Holden. Lily thinks they shouldn’t think about that when Gabriel’s lying in a hospital bed.

Molly’s sick of Lily getting all of Holden’s attention, so she agrees to meet with Silas, and then let’s Holden discover this. Holden rushes off to rescue her and berates her for tricking him into paying attention to her. Ali’s disappointed Casey was hurt by seeing her with Chris – especially since they were only together because Katie set them up again. She tells Chris that hanging out with him was a mistake.  Chris tells Katie that she should stop playing matchmaker to disguise her own loneliness. Katie denies and they have a passionate argument. At the EOD, Chris tells Jacob they should find Katie a man.

It’s the day of Noah’s surgery. Luke comforts Noah and films them together, right before Noah’s led off by a nurse. Reid operates on Noah, but there’s a complication – a leaky blood vessel. Reid, matter of fact, tells Luke they won’t know the extent of the damage to Noah’s brain until he wakes up. Luke’s devastated.  Reid is upset with himself about Noah’s surgery, enough for Bob to order him away from the hospital for a time.  Luke wonders if Reid slipped up on purpose.  Reid is upset but later, he and Luke come back together. They are on their way to making love when Luke pulls back.  He can’t deal with it and goes to see Noah.  Reid watches the scene, then hears Luke say Noah’s been the only one for him. Reid gets it and backs away, respectful but hurting.

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.

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.”

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Jack Admits to Li He’s Finn’s Biological Father in Standout Moments From Ted King

On Tuesday and Wednesday’s episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, Jack (Ted King) finally admitted to Li (Naomi Matsuda) that he is Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) biological father.  Li is devastated because not only did he lie for years and years and never told her or their  son, but he had been with Sheila (Kimberlin Brown).

In a solid performance by Ted King, Jack tries to explain away his bad mistake all those years ago, as Li finally learns about his tryst with Sheila that produced Finn.

He goes on to say how he loved and cared for Finn his entire life and has been a good father to him.  Li acknowledges that, but Jack still lied to both of them.

Jack says he did all of this because he loved Li and did not want to hurt her, or their marriage.  He hopes Li can find a way to forgive him.  She backs away from him, and wonders, if Finn will ever forgive him for his deception, since Finn grew up his entire life not knowing who is bio-dad was?

Watch two pivotal scenes below featuring Ted King and Naomi Matsuda below.

Then let us know, what you think will Finn will do once he learns Jack lied all of these years, and if you think Li will leave Jack, or will Jack be able to repair his marriage? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
