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.

THE BACHELORETTE: During ‘Hometowns’ Jed’s Family Takes A Wrecking Ball To His Relationship With Hannah

Maybe everyone should think twice about bringing a potential suitor home to meet the folks and the siblings?  That’s what Jed and Hannah were probably feeling after that debacle of a hometown on Monday night’s pivotal episode of The Bachelorette.

After having great meet the family moments with Peter and Tyler, and even with Luke (will get back to that in a moment). Hannah probably would never expect to have a family of naysayers thrown at her when she comes to Knoxville with Jed, who at that point had been considered one of the front-runners to win the final rose.  Before they meet Jed’s family, they go record a song together that they co-write on the spot ! The song is supposed to represent their relationship and talks about cobblestone streets within the lyrics  Is this song going to come out on Spotify before we know it?  To add more drama to the moment, Jed says he cannot contain it any longer and confesses that he loves her.  Hannah seems moved.

Now when we get to the family hometown – Jed’s mother makes an odd toast about “sticking to your truth.”  Later, things get very tense and awkward when Hannah speaks with Jed’s mom alone, and tells her that she told Jed that she is falling in love with him  “Do you say that to all of them?” Jed’s mom quipped.

When talk turns to his music career both Jed’s sister, and mother told Hannah that Jed is really only about his music carer, and she might want to run the other way.  There may not be room in his life for her and his music.   Then, there is this whole other side story of Jed’s other girlfriend (Haley Stevens) no one is mentioning.  Following the evening with Jed’s family, Hannah is confused, not knowing what to do, but clearly has opened her eyes that she might be second fiddle in Jed’s life.

Previously, when Hannah met Luke’s family and friends, she saw how religious and how important, really important, his faith was to him, and how everyone loved him.  But, Hannah expressed what happened to Luke’s family with the other guys in the house. and how they hated on Luke throughout the entire competition.  She didn’t quite get the answers she was hoping for, except, that when Luke knows he is wrong about something he quickly fixes it.

When it is time for the rose ceremony, Hannah is supposed to kick one guy to the curb. She gives roses to Peter and Tyler.  Then has a mini-meltdown.  Then goes back in and can’t give a rose to either Jed or Luke,   She says she needs more time with everyone so everyone is staying and getting a rose.  Jed is pissed that he was almost tossed out when it was between him and Luke … and is very concerned what this means for his relationship with Hannah.  Will he stay or quit the show next week?

In an Instagram post telling viewers to back-off his family and more following the airing of last night’s episode, Jed related:  “Hi y’all. Several of you have reached out with messages and questions.  Please know I’m not able to answer right now, but as soon as I’m able to, I will. Until then, I ask that you please understand how much the actions being taken towards myself, my family, the men on the show, and above all, Hannah, are affecting all of our mental and physical health. It goes beyond what is said online. Threatening letters and phone calls have been sent to our homes. My parents and sister are being verbally attacked in public. I beg you to remember what seems like a harmless action is damaging to real people. I want to thank all of you who have reached out or reserved judgement until I am able to speak openly and I can only ask for your patience and kindness until then.”

So, will it be Peter vs. Tyler for the final rose, or are Jed and Luke (who looks like he gets kicked to the curb in next week’s promo) going to be there in the end for the heart of Hannah? Comment below on all The Bachelorette drama.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?

Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!

Courtes/ABC

As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?

So, what did you think about Kim drugging Drew? Who pushed Liesl overboard? What trouble will Hayden cause?  Share your theories via the comment section below.
