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.

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.
