With both Brooke and Taylor taking a different side about Thomas, Stephanie finds herself squarely in the middle and with a definite opinion. Stephanie agrees with Taylor that there is no denying Brooke’s scandalous behavior at Forrester Creations, and with the Forrester family, but also feels it’s not realistic to forbid Thomas from being in contact with his father’s wife. Taylor feels betrayed that Stephanie is taking Brooke’s side and after Brooke leaves, expresses to her friend that she feels she’s lost so much from Stephanie to Brooke. Stephanie apologizes to Taylor and reassures her that she’s not losing her friendship. Angry, Taylor let’s Stephanie know that it’s not “if” Brooke will go after her son, but “when”. Stephanie is left speechless when Taylor goes on an obsessive rant about Thomas needing protection from Brooke. Amber attempts to comfort Oliver when he arrives home early from his photo shoot with Hope. After learning how Liam barged in and took a willing Hope away, Amber offers Oliver a sympathetic ear and a bit of advice. Liam takes Hope to a secluded area on the beach where he speaks to her candidly about her relationship with Oliver and how the death of his mother has changed him. Hope and Liam share a steamy kiss. Taylor leaves Stephanie and heads to Ridge’s office to talk to him about the situation. When she enters, she becomes convinced that her worst fear has become a reality, when she sees Thomas in a steamy embrace with Brooke.  Taylor is relieved to find out she is mistaken and that the blonde girl Thomas is kissing is really “Summer.” Thomas demands an explanation for his mother’s behavior. When she admits she thought it was Brooke, Thomas promises her that will never happen. Thomas assures Taylor that he doesn’t resent her for giving her shares of the company to Steffy and explains that Brooke is helping to make everything okay because she is helping him to work his way up the ladder the old fashioned way, with hard work. Taylor agrees to stop fighting Brooke and Thomas’ partnership and the Taboo line. Stephen, Donna and Katie meet with Brooke for lunch. The Logan family discuss Donna and Stephen’s recent trip to Paris and Donna admits that she still misses Eric.  Stephen broaches the topic of his continuing relationship with Pam and asks his daughters to let bygones by bygones and to move forward. Stephen, Donna and Katie are skeptical when Brooke reveals that Stephanie’s cancer has changed her perspective on life. They query her about the kiss with Thomas. They are shocked when Brooke tells them that Stephanie supports her in this because it has created quite a buzz for the Taboo line. Brooke continues to defend Thomas and convinces her family that the publicity the kiss generated is good for business.  Katie comments on how good Brooke and Thomas look together. Brooke looks at pictures of Thomas and tells her sisters she sees Ridge in his son.

Amber and Oliver panic when Aggie arrives unannounced. Amber hides on the patio and listens as Aggie tells Oliver not to give up on Hope and begins to malign Amber.  When Aggie goes to shut the patio door, she sees Amber in hiding. Amber shows herself and gives Aggie attitude for what she said about her. Oliver tries to continue to cover to his sister, but Amber reveals the truth; that she and Oliver are living together.  Oliver comes to Amber’s defense when Aggie demands that he get rid of Amber immediately. Oliver becomes affected when Aggie asks how living with Amber will improve his chances of reuniting with Hope. Aggie leaves and Amber begins to pack. Oliver reminds her that she doesn’t need to defend herself anymore. Amber flirts with Oliver and tells him that while she wouldn’t steal the Forrester designs again, she would definitely still make the moves on him. Although Oliver assures her that he doesn’t see her like Aggie does, Amber is still disappointed when he tells her that she does need to leave. While Aggie goes to see Hope to beg her to give Oliver one more chance, Amber begs Oliver not to throw her out of his house. Amber gets seductive with Oliver and he becomes tempted by her offer. Hope attempts to get Aggie to understand that she and Oliver will always be friends but that she is with Liam now. Taylor explains to Ridge about her case of mistaken identity with Thomas and his model friend. She admits to her ex-husband that he is the only person who truly understands her. Taylor expresses her relief that she and Thomas were finally able to have an honest conversation and promises Ridge that she will try and trust Brooke. Taylor is beside herself when Ridge admits to her that if her fears would have been correct, and there were truly more between Brooke and Thomas than just the fashion line, his marriage would have been over. He goes on to say that if his marriage to Brooke fell apart he would return to her. Whip stands by unnoticed, but has heard part of his wife’s conversation with her ex-husband.

Ridge and Brooke make love and then discuss Stephanie, Taylor and Thomas. Ridge is surprised when Brooke tells him that Stephanie sided with her today over Taylor. Brooke and Ridge look at photos and remark how happy they are to be together and growing old. Brooke pledges to Ridge to never let anything happen again. Taylor is joyful at Ridge’s admission to her and calls Stephanie over to tell her all about it. As Taylor recounts to Stephanie her conversation with Ridge, Stephanie becomes concerned that Taylor may have misconstrued Ridge’s words and that Taylor may be holding out hope for a future with him. Taylor is positive that Brooke will let Ridge down and have another indiscretion. Stephanie expresses that she hopes that Brooke has changed, especially given all of the time that they have spent together lately. Stephanie thinks Taylor is still in love with Ridge. Amber tells Oliver she admires him and has learned so much for him. Oliver doesn’t allow Amber to berate herself for all of the mistakes she has made in the past. She wholeheartedly apologizes to him for all the messes she has gotten him into. Oliver surprises Amber and gives her a key to the apartment above the garage. She is genuinely moved, and tells him that he is more amazing than she realized and she hopes Hope knows how incredible he is. Aggie arrives to visit Oliver and is pleased that Amber is not there.  She tells her brother of her visit to Hope and urges him to go to her and tell her that he loves her.  Hope is surprised to see Amber at Forrester Creations. Hope lets Amber have it when she reveals she was hoping to see Rick to get a job. She accuses Amber of being a manipulator who enjoys hurting people. Amber is genuine when she tells Hope her true thoughts about Oliver and is pleased with herself when she plants a seed of doubt about Liam.

Bill and Justin are investigating the Liam limousine situation. Justin has uncovered information from the limousine company. Bill is angry and wants answers. When he finds out that Oliver was behind the stunt, he vows revenge. Amber and Hope continue to talk about Hope’s love life. Amber continues to persuade Hope that Liam is just like his father and she should not give up on Oliver.  Hope doesn’t want to listen but she doesn’t want to leave, either.  Liam visits Oliver at home and demands he stop making moves on his girl. Oliver reminds Liam that he works with Hope and that him taking her out of a photo shoot was unacceptable. The two argue over the Hope/Oliver kiss and who kissed who. The argument escalates and each man is convinced he is the right one for Hope.  Amber arrives home and starts to come through the patio door but Oliver waves her away. She sees Liam and hides on the patio. Hope thanks Ridge and Brooke for everything they have done for her. Her parents ask Hope why she seems blue and she admits that it is because of Oliver and Liam. They advise her to always put herself first when it comes to Liam and to make her intentions clear with Oliver, even if it may hurt him. Hope explains that it is not as simple as that, that she is still torn between the two of them. They are interrupted by a call from Liam who tells Hope he wants to see her tonight; that he has made plans and that she will be his top priority.

THIS IS US Fall Finale Delivers Shocking Twists

In the final moments of the season 3 fall finale of This Is Us, viewers were given several jaw-dropping moments befitting of this top-rated drama.  Along the Pearson family journey, back in time, present-day and flash-forward, fans of the series discovered: that Jack’s ‘believed to be dead’, brother, Nicky is actually very much alive.

In a key moment flashing back to the Vietnam war,  Jack finds his brother (who is stoned yet again) sitting on the pier and pretending to shoot Vietnamese villagers with his hand.  Nicky sadly informs Jack that he is not going to leave drugs behind again and clean up this act.  He announces, “I see it all when I’m clean,” and adds, “I’m not gonna complete the mission.”

At the end of that day, Jack can’t find Nicky.  Suddenly, there’s blast from the water, where it appears a boat has exploded, and one of the soldiers says there was a guy in it. Jack rushes into the river and swims toward the wreckage.  We don’t see what happens next, but the belief is that Nicky died in the explosion.

Kevin, who has been in Vietnam trying to learn what happened to Jack and Nicky in the war and about the mysterious woman in the photograph, feels he has zero answers to what happened during the war.   As he and Zoe prepare to leave, Kevin’s tour guide mentions that he’d searched an online database of the Vietnam War Memorial for Nicholas Pearson, but came up short.  The guide says Nicky didn’t die in the war.

Next, the show cuts to a bespectacled man (Griffin Dunne, who now takes over the role) living in an a trailer home. There is a piece of mail on his table addressed to Nicholas Pearson, 2125 Songbird Rd., Bradford, PA 16701.  This would mean that NIcky has lived there for a long time – and a three-hour drive from  Pittsburgh, where Jack and his family lived and were raised!

In other plot developments, the all-important  …Who is “Her?” flash-forward mystery was answered and we learn it is Rebecca.  She is still alive, and we see Beth in present day without her wedding ring to Randall, and seemingly running a ballet studio, getting set to meet up with Randall and adult Tess.  In a key moment Beth tells her employee: “We’re all going to see Randall’s mother .., oh, did you bring the Pin the Tail on the Donkey from the office? I promised I bring it.”  The Pearson Pin the Tail on the Donkey game has been a through-line for the years with the Big Three.

The fall finale gave a look into the future that Randall and Beth’s marriage may not have survived and it could have started with the fact that Randall would not drop out of the political race he was in, even after promising Beth he would, if things were not looking good for him as a candidate.  We also learn that Tess like girls and sorta came out to Randall and Beth, but did to her grandmother, Rebecca.

And, Toby and Kate learned that they are having a boy after cutting the cake to reveal its gender.

This Is Us EP, Dan Fogelman told EW.com about what to look for in the second half of the season when the show returns with all-new episodes starting on January 13th: “Now, it’s time — for a little while, and we will catch little glimpses — to focus on the present-day storylines that help you get there. There are many questions. Where are Kate and Toby in that period? Where is their relationship? Do they have children? Has Kevin figured out his love life? If so, with whom? Have Randall and Beth made it through as we hope Randall and Beth make it through? What has come of their respective careers? And what kind of shape or state is Rebecca in when we’re meeting her and they’re all going to visit her? In order to get to the future and to get more answers there, you need a little bit more present story in the back half of the season. So, I would say that should be the focus right now.”

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Paul Signs Off In Salem With Tearjerker Goodbye

As they say, “all good things must come to an end”, and on Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, viewers watched a tear-filled and emotional goodbye as actor Christopher Sean, who played the role of Paul Narita for over four years with such dignity and grace, exited the series in his final episode.

It all comes about after Paul is heartbroken to learn, thanks to Brady (Eric Martsolf) who could not lie to him anymore, that Will is still in love with Sonny.  And after calling things off with Will and setting him “free”, Paul asks Brady to come by his apartment to inform him that he is leaving Salem.  Brady is certain that Paul will “find love again.”

Later, Paul’s dad, John Black (Drake Hogestyn), arrives and learns the heartbreaking news that Paul had decided to move back to San Francisco to be near his mom, and because there is a top-notch rehab facility to help him get back on his feet and walk again.

John asks his son: “Are you sure that you are doing all this for the right reasons?” Paul says he is not running away, but adds: “It would be hard for me to be here in Salem with Will and Sonny back together and all that. But mostly I could be with my mom, who I really, really miss, and I could be hopeful because I could probably walk again someday.”

After looking up the clinic on the internet with Brady and Paul, John concludes this is the best situation for his son.   “I need to get back on my feet again, in more ways that one,: Paul says.  When John asks when he is headed out, Paul reveals now.  An emotional John is filled with tears at having to saying goodbye to the son he never knew he had until a few years ago.

Paul says to John in a tearjerker moment: “I used to lie awake in bed thinking what kind of man my father was.  And then I met you, and I saw the way that you cherished Marlena and the way you protected your family and the way you fought for what was right.  You have surpassed every expectation I have ever had about a father.”  He tells John he is grateful for all the time they had together. John tells Paul, “I’m so proud of you,” and he tells his son to always keep that big heart of his open, and they share a touching hug.

There is then a knock at the door at Luke, the new PT comes in to whisk Paul away to San Francisco!  There seems to be an instant connection between the two, and then Luke says that he knows full-well who Paul is, “You’re one of my idols”.  Luke goes on to say that when Paul came out it gave him the strength in his own life to do the same.  We also learn Luke is single, which is not lost on Brady and Paul, and John.

As a nice button on Paul’s journey he says, “I’m not hiding anymore, and I’m not pretending to be anyone I’m not. And for that, I do owe Sonny and Will a lo.,” Luke says, “Who is Sonny and Will?” As everyone sort of chuckles, it’s time to leave for the flight and John and Brady exit with Luke, as Paul looks around the apartment one more time.

Kudos to both Christopher Sean and Drake Hogestyn for those heartfelt scenes between father and son.  How many hankies did you need while watching them? We needed five!
