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.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Semi-Finals Conclude with A Shocking Twist

Talk about giving people a near heart attack! After a night of high level competition from the remaining celebrity contestants and their pro partners, the ‘semi-finals’ edition of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars featured a jaw-dropping ending.

This week saw each couple tackling two all-new dances; one ballroom-style routine and one Latin-style routine. Marvel star Xochitl Gomez topped the leaderboard after two rounds of competition with pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Xochitl and Val scored a perfect 60 points from the judges performing a samba to Gloria Estefan’s “Samba’ and then a stunning waltz to Lady Gaga’s “La Vie en Rose”.

Following the waltz, judge Derek Hough became emotional and was moved to tears telling Xochitl and Val that the late head judge, Len Goodman, would have loved their performance, adding, “That was absolutely perfect.”

Going into the semi-finals, the couples were told of the five couples remaining only four would survive and move on the finals. With everything on the line, and through her back pain, Ariana Madix and Pasha Pashkov finally received their first perfect score from the judges performing a foxtrot.

Jason Mraz and Daniella Karagach also received a perfect score in their second round waltz. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said that Jason showed “emotional freedom” in this precise routine.

Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvintsev received 59 out of 60 and a perfect score for their second round performance to the quickstep. The judges commended the former star of The Bachelorette for finally showing some emotion in her performances, instead of just always showing them precision in her dance routines.

When it was time to reveal which couple was going home and which couples made it to the finals … in a heart-stopping moment, Alyson Hannigan and Sasha Farber, who believed they would be the couple going home, were first named as “safe!” As each couple learned their fate, the final two couples left  and supposedly in the bottom two were … Ariana and Pasha and Xochitl and Val.  How could this be? Did America vote off the wrong couple?

Then, in a stunning twist, co-hosts Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough announced that no one was going home meaning all five couples from the semi-finals were moving on to the finals, and their scores for the night would carry over into the final round.

Ariana Madix was moved to tears, thinking her time on the show was over.  She later told Page Six (after the episode came to an end), “That pretend elimination was the most terrifying thing. It was sick and twisted. I was like, ‘I love you guys, but also, I hate you guys for that!’”

Photo: ABC

Alyson Hannigan weighed-in on the shocking conclusion as well: “When (Alfonso) called my name, I thought he made a mistake. I was in total disbelief and I was waiting for him to correct himself .. and then he didn’t correct himself and I was like, ‘What universe are we in?’”

The three-hour Season 32 finale kicks off Tuesday, December 5th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and Disney+.

So, with all five couples moving on to next week’s season 32 finale, who do you think deserves to win the newly-named Len Goodman Mirror Ball Trophy? Share your picks via the comment section below.  But first check out the dance of the night from Xochitl and Val.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: The Newmans Are Blindsided By Who Aunt Jordan and Claire Really Are

On Monday’s November 27th episode of The Young and the Restless, true identifies began to be revealed as Aunt Jordan (Colleen Zenk) and Claire’s (Hayley Erin) plot took hold.

The story picked-up with poor Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) awake and in a drunken stupor and seeing things very blurry. Realizing the nightmare she finds herself in, she grabs the pillow and tries to sleep, but finds a photo of Eve Howard (the late Margaret Mason) behind it. Nikki recognizes the photo of Eve and is left bewildered.

Cole (J. Eddie Peck), who has arrived to the house, is downstairs leaving a message for Victoria on his cellphone. He says he followed Nikki’s instructions but is perplexed at just who’s house he is in. Next, Aunt Jordan appears from behind with a hammer, no less, and clobbers Cole on the head.

Later, Jordan is now hovering over Nikki’s bedside. Jordan tells Nikki to stay calm and well-hydrated and how she shouldn’t have pulled the IV out. (Oh no! Nikki will now drink the IV, or did she do that already?) Next, Jordan tells her that her family will be arriving soon. Nikki is distraught and under the influence and tells Jordan, “You did this to me!” Jordan replies, “No, Nikki. You did this to yourself. Your whole family did this to you.”  After Nikki has fallen asleep she has a dream – and we get a flashback to a crazed Eve in a showdown scene with Nikki.

With the Newmans all downstairs, Claire offers them all some water, while they wait for her Aunt Jordan. Finally, Jordan shows up with a faux cast in her arm with a flimsy story about what happened to Nikki, hinting she was drunk, and what happened when the paramedics came and took her to the hospital.

However, that was a ruse and Jordan lets the Newmans have it.  She tells them to shut up if they ever want to see Nikki again. Jordan asks Victor (Eric Braeden) if she looks familiar to him. He says I never seen you before in my life. Jordan then tells Victor, you knew my sister Eve Howard, intimately.  Jordan tells Victor he broke her sister’s heart and dumped her like she wasn’t human. Now they must all make amends.

Jordan says she and Eve were estranged when Eve died, and if she would have never come to Genoa City they would have reconciled. At that point, Jordan admits that Nikki is not in the hospital nor did she have seizure. She said all that to get them to the house. Throughout the conversation, Victor, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) have all been sipping on their water bottles. That is when Jordan admits they all just drank poison and soon they will have heart attacks, and she will take great pleasure in watching them die.

Just then, Claire drags Cole in to the living room. Victoria is shocked to see Cole, but even more shocked when Claire says,“He had to be here for the family reunion… didn’t he mother?” We fade to black.

So, what do you think (if it holds true) that Aunt Jordan is Eve’s sister and that Claire is Cole and Victoria’s daughter? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Thanksgiving Brings Gloria and Emma Back to Port Charles, While Sasha Struggles to Move on With Cody, Valentin Confronts Charlotte

In a heartfelt Thanksgiving episode (pt 1) from General Hospital, sometimes it’s the smaller moments that have the biggest impact.  As we begin Turkey Day gatherings, Lois (Rena Sofer) has a surprise for Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and the rest of the Quartermaines, when her mother Gloria (Ellen Travolta) arrives!

With Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois at the helm of cooking Thanksgiving dinner, this could be the year that nothing goes wrong with the Q’s Thanksgiving dinner … don’t count on it! Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives with Chase (Josh Swickard) and is thrilled to see grandma Gloria.

Later, Gloria meets Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) and Cody (Josh Kelly) and says what a stunning couple they are. In the Q’s living room, Gloria tells Sasha she’s a big fan of hers from Home & Heart, and to remember that she has a knight in shining armor in Cody. After all, he was the one who saved her from their attempt to drive her crazy on TV.  Eventually, Sasha sneaks out. Cody waits and then decides to find her.

While Gloria is in the kitchen, she gets a call on her cellphone that says, “Uncle Pete.” This changes Gloria’s demeanor as something is amiss. When Lois meets up with her mom in the kitchen, she sees that Gloria has poured some booze in her drink. Gloria gets a call again, but ignores it.

Cody has found Sasha in the stables with Ferdinand. It is then, we get to the root cause of what is going on with her. Sasha shares that this time last year she had Brando and Liam in her life and they are both gone. Sasha feels like she is betraying them, if she allows herself to move on, and that would make her feel she is leaving them behind. Sasha knows Brando would want her to go on with her life. Cody says moving on doesn’t mean forgetting.

When Gloria heads to the Q’s living room to announce that dinner will be ready in a few minutes, Lois may have just jinxed the meal when she mentioned that “They’ve broken the curse.” Ned (Wally Kurth) thinks she just jinxed things and Edward’s ghost will arrive soon. Then, like clockwork the smoke alarm sounds. Leo exclaims, “Here we go again!”

Elsewhere, a melancholy Anna (Finola Hughes) is in for a surprise when a chipper Robert (Tristan Rogers) shows up at her hotel room door. Knowing she is fretting over shooting Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) and her relationship with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), he has brought someone to cheer her up. With a knock at her door, Anna is thrilled to see her granddaughter Emma in a return visit from an all-grown up Brooklyn Rae Silzer.

Meanwhile, Charlotte is home from the hospital and Laura (Genie Francis) and Valentin confront her for what she did to Anna – and how Victor was manipulating her from the grave with the letter he wrote to her. Charlotte lies claiming she did not set fire to Anna’s. Valentin looks puzzled and worried as to how he can breakthrough to his daughter, especially now that his relationship with Anna has tanked.

Finally, it’s a Davis girls Thanksgiving as Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) hosts her daughters plus TJ (Tajh Bellow) Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez), who gets a last minute invitation from Kristina (Kate Mansi). Sam (Kelly Monaco) tells Kristina how proud of her she is, while Molly (Kristen Vaganos) and TJ share that, although they are sad about what happened to their potential child, they are thankful for what they do have. TJ tells Alexis he has chosen neurology as his medical speciality. Could she be hoping he could help her with Gregory’s (Gregory Harrison) ALS condition? Eventually, Alexis makes a toast to her girls and their friends and loved ones.
