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.

Grand Hotel

GRAND HOTEL Finale: How Sky Died, Paternity Game-Changer, And Another Mystery Begins

ABC’s Grand Hotel ended its season with several plot twists that kept the hour soapy drama in a fast and furious pace to give viewers the answers they had been waiting for, and if the show was picked-up, a cliffhanger with multiple suspects who could be responsible for this new crime.

If you have not watched the finale and intend to, do not read any further, spoilers contained herein:

Danny is finally revealed to Santiago and Gigi to be the brother of the deceased Sky.  Alicia decides to help Danny figure out what happened to his sister on the night she died in the hurricane.  Through flashbacks, we learn that Sky discovered the suicide note that Beatriz had written inside a closet full of jewelry while on a date with Yoli.  Sky used the Intel in it to blackmail Gigi, but Gigi says she does not have access to that kind of cash.   The letter contains the damaging proof that Mrs P and Santiago had a child together, Jason.  Santiago did not know.  To make matters even worse in current time, Santiago just made Gigi’s daughters: Carolina and Yoli part of his new will.

It seems that Mrs. P and Gigi kept the secret of Jason’s paternity and did not want to come out.  Helen put the hotel on lockdown, leaving Sky trapped and having to go through the only available exit to get out of the hotel, which led her into the night and the hurricane.  There, Gigi confronts her at gunpoint. However, there is a scuffle, and lo and behold, Mrs. P husband’s, Malcolm steps out of the shadows after overhearing that his wife had an fling and child with Santiago and clubbed Sky in the back causing her death.

After Gigi admitted to Santiago, while he was trying to push Danny over the hotel balcony, that she did not kill Sky, Gigi eventually reveals who it was, leading Danny and Alicia to later head to the hospital where Malcolm is dying.  Alicia confronts Mrs. P about her lies and how she hid Jason’s paternity from him and Santiago.  Meanwhile, Danny decides not to tell Malcolm’s family that he killed his sister, because as Danny says, “the universe had already found another way to punish him” – and with that – a few moments later, Malcolm dies.

Now that Santiago had learned that he is the bio-dad of Jason, he won’t forgive Gigi, who clearly does not want Jason getting more of the pie than her daughters if Santiago were to have the opportunity to adjust his will.  Meanwhile, Santiago has finally blackmailed Mateo out of his job at the hotel, but Mateo does not want the evidence on the flash drive Santiago has in his possession to come out of the deed that he has done.  Mrs P. also gets into a very intense phone conversation with Santiago and they agree to meet downstairs at the hotel.

However, as Santiago walks through the dark halls, out of the shadows gun shots are fired, and he is left bleeding out on the floor.  Did Gigi, Mateo, Helen or even someone else shoot him?  Maybe Carolina and Yoli’s father is the culprit, who is said to be returning home after finding out his daughters are now in Santiago’s will and who has no love lost for the guy!

In other stories, Javi was seduced by an older woman who turned out to be an alcoholic and Ingrid’s mother, a pissed Ingrid then hooks up with Mateo.  And  finally, as Danny goes to the ocean to say goodbye to his sister Sky by throwing her lighter into the sea, Alicia asks, what he is going to do next?  He says, he will return home to Chicago, but at that point the two of them share a passionate kiss.

Throughout the episode, the emotional heart of it was played to perfection by Lincoln Younes as Danny, who as the brother trying to avenge his sister’s death, played all the beats of his story arc.

So, what did you think of the Grand Hotel finale? What did you think of who was revealed to have killed Sky? Who do you think shot Santiago? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Goes Over A Cliff! If He Survives, Will They Redeem Him?

Now here’s a ‘cliff’-hanger moment for a Friday soap, that brought with it what could be a game-changing moment, certainly for the relationship of Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), and what looks like for Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).  For months, Thomas had become more obsessed and unhinged over keeping Hope (Annika Noelle) from her child Beth and away from the man she truly loves, Liam (Scott Clifton).

Many of Thomas’ acts have been truly despicable.  But now after a wake-up call conversation with his son, Douglas, and an attempt to set things right with Hope, who wants nothing to do with him, things take a turn when at Steffy’s,  Hope screams at Thomas to stay away from her. He tries to explain he just wants to talk to her, but she wants nothing to do with him.

We then see Brooke making it to the house, and seeing the ensuing argument,  She fears the worse and becomes in-between her daughter and her stepson, as Ridgeis also heading to the house to make sure nothing happens between Thomas and Hope.

But then, in a push/pull moment, Thomas goes over the cliff.  Brooke is mortified. And from the promo for next week’s B&B, Thomas is unconscious and might not make it, as Ridge sits by his bedside.

So, what is this twist all about? Either, Thomas choreographed the fall to gain sympathy and knew exactly what he was doing, or it was an accident, that might look like an attempted murder for now, and that will cause trouble between Brooke and Ridge, but also, and perhaps through testing in the hospital it might reveal, Thomas had a brain tumor causing him to act erratically?  Or, could it be that on Friday’s episode Thomas truly had a quick come-to-Jesus moment and had already realized the horrors of his way and was truly trying to set things right?  Or, could someone sneak into hospital room and snuff him out with a pillow? Many theories!

Now watch below the final moments when Thomas takes a major tumble and next week’s promo for B&B.  Then, weigh-in: What do you think the show will do with the character of Thomas now? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.
