Tea shares her suspicions about Todd with Blair and both women face the fact that he’s capable of almost anything.  Starr tells Todd she believes him when he swears he didn’t push Marty.  Hannah shocks Cole when she claims she saw Todd push Marty down the stairs.  Todd dismisses Hannah as a liar when Cole confronts him at the high school gym.  An enraged Cole begins pummeling Todd in front of Starr, Tea, Blair, Danielle and the others.  Markko comes dangerously close to discovering Langston’s affair with Ford but gets distracted by Cole’s outburst.  Nora promises Marty she’ll prosecute Todd to the fullest extent of the law if he did indeed cause her fall.  Gigi and Viki get caught up with each other.  Viki believes Gigi and Rex should find a way to get past their hurt and be together.  Meanwhile, Bo encourages Rex to take a chance with Gigi.

With Blair and Starr by his side, an unconscious Todd is rushed to the hospital after Cole beats him to within an inch of his life.  Danielle surprises Tea by wanting to accompany her to the hospital to check on Todd’s condition.  Dr. Gangemi warns Blair that Todd is in pretty bad shape.  Blair urges Todd to fight as she sits vigil by his bedside.  Starr tells Cole that Todd might die because of him.  John tells Brody to round up Cole and Hannah.  Natalie thinks John owes her an apology after learning there’s an eyewitness who saw Todd push Marty.  Dorian fears Kelly could be in danger if Melinda and Rodney really were murdered.  Viki and Charlie are glad they have each other. Blair, Tea and Danielle watch breathlessly as Dr. Gangemi and her team jump into action to try and save Todd after his heart stops.  While barely clinging to life, Todd suffers through a horrific nightmare in which he sees all his fears come true.  The tension is high between Cole and Starr as he remains unrepentant for what he’s done.  Brody arrives to arrest Cole.  John questions Hannah, who sticks to her story.  John shows up at Todd’s hospital room.  Natalie doesn’t get the apology she was expecting from John.  A wily Charlie convinces Jessica to consider asking Brody to the prom.  Layla anticipates a marriage proposal from Cristian when he surprises her with a romantic dinner for two.  Jessica calls Brody after seeing Layla and Cristian together. Tea reverts to form and reflexively defends Todd when John arrives to arrest him for pushing Marty down the stairs and killing her unborn baby.  Unmoved by Tea’s arguments, John handcuffs Todd to his hospital bed.  Todd implores Starr to believe his claims of innocence.  Blair puts Todd on notice that he’d better not have had anything to do with what happened to Marty.  Viki reaches out to Danielle, who’s in turmoil over Tea’s decision to represent Todd.  Marty races to Cole’s side after learning of his arrest.  Dorian, fearing for Kelly’s safety, contacts Shaun hoping to hire him to act as Kelly’s bodyguard.  A handsome stranger arrives at Dorian’s looking for Kelly.  Bo shares his fatherly wisdom with Matthew.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
