Brooke visits Stephen in prison and is stunned when her father tells her not to accept Stephanie’s deal. She’s even further stunned when Stephen explains that Bill will take care of everything. When Brooke leaves, Pam arrives with lemon bars and assures Stephen that she is there for him. The two lovers share how they feel about one another. Bill puts his plan to reacquire part of Forrester Creations into action. Justin represents Donna in her arbitration regarding her divorce settlement with Eric. Stephanie offers up a deal that doesn’t sit well with Justin or Bill. As Bill and Stephanie exchange harsh words and fling accusations, Jarrett calls Bill on his cell to let him know that Pam is visiting Stephen in jail. Bill shocks the Forresters, and the Logan sisters, when he refuses Stephanie’s deal. Later, Pam arrives and testifies as an eye witness to the shooting, leaving some of the people furious and others quite smug.  Hope visits Stephen in jail and breaks the news that Oliver has convinced her to go off to college in Boston. Stephen wants to make sure that she’s not leaving because the Forresters have made her life miserable. Once assured, Stephen and Hope share a poignant grandfather/granddaughter moment where he tells her his hopes for all of his children and grandchildren. Furious with Pam, Stephanie lashes out at her sister for not realizing Stephen’s true motives. Pam defends Stephen until the bitter end. Stephanie offers her deal one last time but Bill convinces Brooke and Katie to decline. The arbitrator makes his ruling in the case of Logan v. Forrester.  Stephen thanks Bill and Justin for their involvement in his release and asks to have some time alone with Pam. He takes her in his arms and tries to convince her that his feelings for her are real. Stephanie, livid at the turn of events, realizes she must take care of Stephen before she can take care of Bill. Stephanie goes to see Stephen and threatens him. Ridge and the rest of Hope’s family deal with the sudden surprise of her decision to leave for college. Hope puts all of her trust in Oliver and Brooke. Oliver, disgusted that Steffy is controlling their lives with her blackmail, begs her to stop. Steffy, now armed with new information of Donna’s settlement, comes up with yet another blackmail demand for Brooke.  While waiting for Nick, Jackie tries to play peacekeeper between Bridget and Aggie. Amber and Whip are shocked and Bridget, Owen and Jackie silent, as Nick arrives and announces to all that the company is in shambles and his wife slept with his stepfather and is now having Owen’s baby. Nick asks for their confidentiality in this delicate matter. Later, Jackie confesses her true feelings about the situation to Whip. Bridget pleads with Nick to give her a chance to make things right. Jackie consoles her daughter-in-law when she returns and tells her of Nick’s decision. Nick makes a request of Aggie. Brooke realizes that Steffy’s blackmail will never stop and tells Oliver that her only option is to come clean with Ridge about what happened between them the night of Hope’s graduation party. Brooke sets out to tell Ridge the truth.  When Taylor returns home, Steffy confides in her and Stephanie how soon their lives will be “Logan-free.” Without giving details, Steffy admits she gave the Forresters an offer they could not refuse. Stephanie makes a generous offer to Taylor. Oliver spends time with Hope as she prepares to leave for college. He attempts to comfort her but makes it clear that she cannot put her life on hold for him. Hope begs Oliver to avoid Steffy while she is gone; because she’s sure her step-sister is trouble. Brooke begins to unravel the story of what happened that night to Ridge, explaining to him that she only left Forrester because she’s being blackmailed by Steffy.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke Reels When Hope Says Douglas Saw Grandma Kissing ‘Santa Claus’

Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) night of booze is coming back to bite her in so many ways! On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke’s daughter, Hope (Annika Noelle), confronts her mother after getting an earful from little Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) – that he saw grandma kissing Santa Claus AKA Deacon (Sean Kanan).

It all unravels when Douglas tells Hope that he saw Brooke kissing a man in a red hat. Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope think that Douglas may have Christmas Eve and New Years Eve confused when he saw the kiss.  However, Douglas insists it was New Year’s Eve, which stuns Hope.

Later, Hope surprises Brooke in her living room just as Brooke remembers New Year’s Eve and doing shots with Deacon. Hope then asks if she came clean about everything, because she and Liam had an interesting conversation with Douglas.

It is then that Brooke learns that Douglas came up to the house that night looking for his stuffed animal.  Hope shares that he saw Brooke through the window. She then exclaims: “Douglas says he saw you. He saw you kissing Santa Claus.”

Brooke is shocked! Hope remembers Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) was not home that night and asks her mom, “What happened?”

Will Brooke tell her Hope she was making out with her father? Will Brooke ever figure out what triggered her drinking, thanks to Sheila (Kimberlin Brown)? Comment below, but first check out the scene between Katherine Kelly Lang and Annika Noelle from today’s B&B.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
