Hope feels Liam slip away from her as she watches Bill onstage building Liam up to the crowd. Bill describes his son as one of the most eligible bachelors in the world, before introducing him as William Spencer the Third, the future of Spencer Publications.

The cheerleaders go wild and Liam runs on stage, swept up in all of the excitement.  Wanting to make Bill proud, Liam gives a speech where he tells the world that he promises to do the best job he can and live up to Bill’s image. Upset that he didn’t mention her, Hope begins to leave. Liam runs to her and tries to convince her that she means more to him than any of the things his father can offer, but is interrupted by a cheerleader who tries to take him back into the party. Hope tells him to go enjoy his party and then leaves. Amber witnesses this interaction and sends a tray of shots to Liam. He takes one and rejoins the cheerleaders. Saddened that Hope has left, Liam gets drunk. Amber follows him home and begins her seduction. Notified by Amber that Hope is alone, Oliver arrives at Hope’s house under the guise of delivering proofs for Brooke. Hope cries on Oliver’s shoulder then thanks him for being such a good friend. Oliver has made her feel better about the situation and she decides she must go back to Liam, that it was not fair of her to leave him on his big night. Donna, Marcus and Justin share a sweet family moment at Liam’s party. Bill tells Katie that although Hope is her niece, she still believes that Liam should not be in a relationship right now.

Liam is shocked to wake up and find Amber in his bed. She tells him she followed him home after the party because he was drunk. Liam can’t remember anything from the night before. Trying to act sincere, Amber tells him she came over with good intentions but she couldn’t help herself. Liam reminds her that he’s not eligible and that he still has a girlfriend, Hope. Liam realizes he has multiple missed phone messages from Hope and freaks out. Amber apologizes and offers to be anything he needs. After speaking with Hope, Liam says Hope can’t know about this; that she’ll never accept that he slept with Amber. Stephanie and Dayzee go to the Insomnia Café where C.J. informs them that he is selling the coffeehouse. C.J. and Stephanie reminisce about Sally Spectra. Over a pot of coffee, C.J. tells Stephanie that he’s ready to move to San Francisco but can’t seem to sell the joint. When C.J. goes to pack, Stephanie tells Dayzee she thinks Insomnia could be a vehicle to help the homeless and suggests if she buys it, that Dayzee could run it and help people from Skid Row. Excited and overwhelmed, Dayzee accepts Stephanie’s offer. Stephanie renames it “Dayzee’s”.

Brooke and Katie embark on another trip to Skid Row so that Brooke can find Anthony. She doesn’t want him to be alone on Christmas and plans on returning the good will that he recently showed her. Brooke becomes a bit frantic when no one has seen her new friend and he’s not at any of his regular spots. She decides to head down to the Mission and Katie sees firsthand the overcrowded tarp tents and the true plight of the homeless. Brooke hears faint music and follows it to where she finds a bruised and battered, but still performing, Anthony. Pam and Thomas arrive at “Dayzee’s” to help get it ready for the holiday celebration. Stephanie and Dayzee share their vision for the establishment with the others; it will be a place where everyone is welcome and everyone is a customer, even if they can’t afford to pay.   Brooke introduces Anthony to Katie then asks Anthony to come with her; she wants to take him away from the cold. Anthony only agrees to go with them when Ridge calls and tells them about Dayzee’s new place and that she and Stephanie want everyone to join them there for Christmas. Anthony is overwhelmed when Brooke and Katie take him home and offers him a shower and clean clothes. Brooke, Ridge, Eric, Hope, Liam, Marcus, Pam, Taylor, Whip, Thomas, Thorne and Felicia all gather at “Dayzee’s” with Anthony, Tony, Leilani, Kevin, OG and Miss Jones.  Stephanie makes a big announcement that will change all of their lives for the better.

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.
