Stephanie tries to convince Thomas not to reveal the truth about him and Brooke, but he is determined to fess up.  Eric queries Ridge about why he is rushing into marriage with Taylor so soon after his breakup with Brooke. Ridge confesses to Eric the reason why he is marrying Taylor so quickly. Brooke is consoled by her family as she mourns the loss of her marriage. Deep and dark secrets are revealed by all in attendance at Taylor’s bridal shower.  When Thomas states that he intends to tell the truth to Ridge and Taylor, Stephanie assures him that he is too late. Stephanie and Thomas’ guilt is worn down when Hope and Dayzee separately give them a final chance to come clean regarding the truth about Brooke before the wedding.  Ridge pays one last visit to Brooke and RJ where he says an emotional “goodbye”.

Brooke sends Ridge off to his wedding with loving words and a thoughtful souvenir. Steffy has a difficult time containing her excitement that her family has triumphed over Brooke.  Family and friends gather to witness Ridge and Taylor reunited in marriage. Liam and Hope attempt to distract RJ and cheer up Brooke from thinking about Ridge marrying Taylor. While Hope continues to stand firm that Thomas lied about what happened on the Island, Brooke defends her trust in him.  Thomas and Stephanie are riddled with guilt as they watch Taylor and Ridge exchange their marriage vows.  Heartbroken that Ridge and Taylor’s wedding is taking place, Brooke is comforted by Stephen.  Brooke hopes that once Ridge and Taylor are married, she will be able to move on with her life.  Dayzee and Steffy set their differences aside and agree to become friends.

In the living room, Ridge is aghast at Stephanie’s suggestion that they just continue as though nothing happened. Taylor turns to Thomas and asks him how he could do this! Stephanie doesn’t let him answer – she says he saw her and Ridge happy together the way it used to be. Taylor yells that she wouldn’t want a reunion this way – she thought her son was molested. She can’t believe what they’ve done. She says she thought it was Brooke who corrupted Thomas, but it was Stephanie. Thomas tells Taylor he did it for himself too. At the guesthouse, Eric tells Steffy that he sent the minister back to the house – he was uncomfortable. Steffy takes off, saying she needs to know what’s going on. Pam, Thorne, and Felicia continue to speculate on why Stephanie would stop the wedding. Marcus notices that Dayzee went after Steffy. At home, Brooke tells Stephen that Ridge and Taylor must be married by now. Brooke tells him to go – she needs to be alone. Stephen leaves, but returns to retrieve his phone. He can’t find Brooke. Pam phones and tells him they don’t know if the wedding is going to happen or not. Stephen hangs up and searches for Brooke. Outside, Brooke finds a solitary spot below a fountain and sits. Meanwhile, Stephen calls Katie to fill her in. On the Forrester mansion grounds, Dayzee stops Steffy from going into the house. Steffy realizes she knows exactly what’s going on. Dayzee stammers that it’s not her place to tell. Steffy worries about whether the wedding will happen.

Dayzee says no matter what happens, nothing will be the same. Eric enters the Forrester living room and demands to know what’s going on, noting that Stephanie’s been hiding something from him for days. Ridge sends him back to the guesthouse and asks Thomas what promises Stephanie made him. Thomas tells his parents about the shares. Taylor is livid that Stephanie bribed her son and now her happiness will be yanked away. Stephanie hollers argues that Ridge should be with Taylor anyway – what other decision could he make? Taylor tells Ridge she would like to go on with the wedding, but she realizes what his feelings are for Brooke, who’s done nothing wrong. She tells Ridge what happens next is his decision. Back in the guesthouse, Eric tells the group he doesn’t have any answers. Steffy pleads with everyone to hang in there – she can’t believe the wedding is off. Pam calls Stephen back and warns him not to get Brooke’s hopes up – no one’s been sent home. Stephanie opens the door. Everyone clamors to ask what’s going on. Brooke sits watching the fountain in her garden. Suddenly rose petals appear in the water. She looks up to see Ridge smiling at her.

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.
