Schuyler knocks the wind out of Gigi when he announces he’s the father of Stacy’s baby as Sierra Rose is prepped for life-saving heart surgery.  Gigi is further stunned when Schuyler admits he’s known the truth for several months and never told her.  Rex has the difficult task of explaining the truth about the baby to Shane and later begins to open up to Bo about how he really feels.  Shane wonders if Rex and Gigi will get back together.  Kyle is dismayed over Fish’s reluctance to find out whether or not he’s Sierra Rose’s father because he believes the baby should be raised by a “normal couple” and not a gay man and his partner.  Jessica doesn’t recognize Natalie as being her sister but does pretend to know Bree so as not to traumatize the little girl.  Greg and Rachel reunite and make love.  Rachel and Greg are at odds over Schuyler’s possible involvement in stealing oxytocin from the hospital but agree to put the matter to rest.  With curiosity getting the best of her, Rachel looks through Schuyler’s backpack and finds the vial of oxytocin.

Schuyler’s under the delusion that nothing has to change between him and Gigi but she soon disabuses him of this notion after unleashing her anger.  Roxy encourages Rex to go to Gigi.  After learning that Tea has moved out, Blair resists Todd’s advances because she doesn’t want to fall back into old habits.  Fearing for Schuyler after finding the empty vial of oxytocin in his backpack, Rachel turns to Tea for legal advice.  Tea admits to Rachel that Schuyler could be in serious trouble if he induced Stacy’s early labor and something happens to the baby.  Clint rips into Kim when he hears her verbally abusing Nigel but softens when she tells him that Stacy drowned to death.  Matthew and Danielle’s make out session starts to build to something more but Matthew makes her see that her reasons for wanting to have sex aren’t the right ones.

Snoop Dogg gets caught up with his old friend Bo and invites him, Nora and Matthew to his concert. Jack and Danielle get off to a rocky start.  Danielle sees red when Todd instinctively forbids her to go to Snoop’s concert with Matthew.  Nora’s concerned about Matthew getting involved with Todd’s daughter but Bo tries to ease her worries.  Todd and Tea chaperone Danielle and Matthew’s outing at Capricorn.  Without mentioning Langston by name, Ford remains evasive when Cristian questions him about the girl he keeps thinking about.  Langston can’t get Ford off her mind and offers to babysit Hope to avoid going to Capricorn to see Snoop with Markko.  After learning Langston is home alone, Ford shows up at the apartment.  Greg’s parents snub Rachel but clearly adore Shaun’s date Vivian.  Snoop performs at Capricorn.

Brody desperately wants Jessica to remember him and shows her a DVD and photos of the happy times they shared but his efforts are in vain.  Jessica agrees to kiss Brody but even that doesn’t trigger her memory of him.  Gigi is grateful for Rex’s support as they wait for word on Sierra Rose.  Rachel believes Schuyler when he swears he didn’t use the oxytocin on Stacy.  Gigi finds Schuyler praying in the chapel and puts aside her emotions to let him know Sierra Rose is out of surgery.  Markko narrowly avoids catching Langston about to make love with Ford when he returns home unexpectedly.  Starr fights feelings of jealousy when she meets Hannah, Cole’s very attractive classmate.  John and Marty patch things up.  Natalie’s affected when she sees John kissing Marty.  Jessica calls Cristian and asks him to come see her.  Cristian would give Jessica a friendly kiss on the cheek but she pulls him into a far more passionate one.  Starr suspects Langston is hiding something but she denies it.  Langston confronts Ford after figuring out he came over the night before because he knew she was alone.  Ford plants a steamy kiss on Langston.  Blair cautions Dorian that her confidence that Mitch is no longer a threat may be premature.  Kelly and Adriana arrive at La Boulaie for Dorian’s gathering of the Cramer women.  Andrew arrives at Dorian’s saying he has bad news.  Roxy’s unsettled after visiting Mitch in prison.  Mitch gets a visit from one of his disciples.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Sally Reveals Her Plan To Nab Wyatt; Katie Lowers The Boom On Bill

BOLD is back!  On Tuesday, July 21st, the CBS Daytime drama, The Bold and the Beautiful aired its first original episodes in months, and should be congratulated not only for being the first soap back in production, but who also, in short order,  got new episodes on the air starting with today.

And, there was plenty of action in the first show back amid the coronavirus pandemic.  So, here’s the key points of what went down.

Sally (Courtney Hope) and Dr. Escobar (Monica Ruiz) wind up tying an unconscious Flo (Katrina Bowden) to a radiator after the doc conked her over the head previously, when Flo found out Sally’s been faking her illness.  Meanwhile, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) comes by Sally’s place, and sees how the place is in complete disarray.  A concerned Wyatt phones Sally who lies that she fell, and is with her doctor getting checked out.

When Wyatt tells Sally he wants to be there for her, she takes that to the extreme.  Dr. Escobar goes on how they will be arrested for kidnapping Flo.  Sally, who is becoming more unglued, says under her breath:“The threat of just losing me isn’t enough.”  Just then, Flo wakes up and is in for a rude awakening when she realizes she is kidnapped and tied up.  Flo thinks Sally has lost it.   Sally tries to reason to her that they never meant for this to happen, but she is going after Wyatt.  Flo warns her she won’t get him like this way  … and then Sally says this is the perfect moment for her to get pregnant due to what the app says on her phone, and she will have Wyatt’s children and a family,   Then, angry and vindictive, Sally tells Flo in no uncertain times: “I refuse to lose to you. I’m going to have Wyatt’s baby.”

Elsewhere at Forrester Creations, Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont) get into a discussion about the consequences he must face for kissing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), but he doesn’t know what Katie is about to say.  She says she believes he’s sorry. and she loves him very much, but she doesn’t know if she can forgive him this time.  Bill attempts to reason with Katie, by saying that “Bitch Quinn” (Rena Sofer) weaponized his kiss with Brooke and made them collateral damage.  All he wants is to come home.  However, Katie has other plans and wants them to tell their son, Will, what is going on between them … they’re separated and they may not get back together.  It should be noted that Heather Tom, who just won her record-tying sixth Daytime Emmy, proved again why she is a multi-winner with her performance in these scenes.

And at the beach house, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) talk over the current state of their lives; where he realizes and so does she, that something more has to be in her life than raising a baby and work.  Cue the new doctor in town (Tanner Novlan as “Finn”) later this week!

So, what did you think of B&B’s first new episode back? Comment below..

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.
