After a chance encounter with Charlie at a roadside bar, Dorian suggests that he kill Mitch as a way to solve all their problems.  Viki’s relieved when Charlie returns home without having resorted to drinking.  Rex tells Bo how Mitch made a move against Stacy to try and get her baby.  Bo lets Rex know he can turn to him at any time if he ever needs anything.  Gigi picks up on the fact that something’s bothering Schuyler, who’s privately worried Kyle, might spill the beans about Rex not being the father of Stacy’s baby.  Kyle hates keeping Schuyler and Stacy’s secret about the baby.  Stacy tells Kim she’s afraid the truth about the baby will come out when she fails to give birth by Valentine’s Day because her actual due date isn’t until a month later.  While doing research on the internet, Kim learns about a drug called oxytocin that’s used to induce labor and decides to enlist Schuyler to help her and Stacy get their hands on some of it.  Natalie and Jessica are dismayed to find that Kim has moved into the mansion with Clint.  Tea and Danielle arrive at Rachel’s after returning from Tahiti.  Tea tells Rachel that Danielle learned Todd’s her father but doesn’t mention the fact that Ross is alive.  Meanwhile, Blair takes a sullen Todd to visit Starr on her birthday but nothing can get his mind off of missing Tea.  Tea goes to see Todd, who’s happily surprised by her return.  Tea reveals that Danielle knows the truth that Todd is her father.  Rachel’s evasive when Danielle questions her about Todd.  Once alone, Danielle decides to start doing some research on Todd online.  Schuyler balks when Kim asks him to get her oxytocin to induce Stacy’s early labor but she makes a strong argument as to why he should do so.  After learning that Fish slept with Stacy, Kyle considers the possibility that Fish could be the father of her baby.  Langston confides to Blair that she fantasized about Ford while having sex with Markko.  Matthew tries to make things right with Destiny.  Rex and Stacy meet with Eli to discuss guardianship of their baby should something happen to both of them.

Todd’s taken by surprise when Tea tells him that Ross is alive and was the one responsible for convincing Danielle to return to Llanview.  Todd dreads the thought of having to explain his sordid past to Danielle.  Meanwhile, Danielle has already learned all about Todd’s misdeeds after researching him on the internet.  Matthew’s surprised to find Danielle at Rachel’s.  Danielle voices her despair to Matthew over the fact that Todd is her father.  Tea returns to Rachel’s only to find the apartment empty.  Fish is flabbergasted to think it’s possible he could be the father of Stacy’s baby.  Kyle and Fish confront Kim and Stacy threatening to go to Rex and Schuyler with their suspicions.  Kim and Stacy, however, force Fish and Kyle to keep quiet or risk them destroying Kyle’s medical career.  Fish and Kyle decide to bide their time and plan to have the baby’s DNA tested after it’s born.  After being put on the spot by Cristian and Layla, Markko’s forced to invite Ford to Starr and Langston’s party at Capricorn.  Langston, who can’t shake sexy thoughts of Ford, can barely hide her upset after learning he’s coming to her party.  Marty refuses to help Todd redeem himself in Danielle’s eyes.  Todd’s horrified when Tea alerts him to the fact that Danielle has already learned about his unsavory past via an internet search.  In an effort to help Danielle come to grips with Todd being her father, Matthew introduces her to Starr.  Jessica receives a letter from Mitch asking her to meet him on the docks alone.  After leaving Jessica under the watchful eye of a fellow cop, Brody decides to confront Mitch himself.  Nurse Charles sets her sights on Jessica.  Not wanting to let her know what he’s really up to, Charlie devastates Viki when he leads her to believe he’s drinking again when she follows him to the roadside bar where he’s meeting Dorian.  Charlie tells Dorian he’ll kill Mitch for her.

Starr tries to give Danielle some insight into Todd.  Todd and Tea are anxious to find Danielle.  Todd wonders if it would be best if Tea just returned to Tahiti with Danielle but she assures him they’ll work together to explain things to their daughter.  Brody plays into Mitch’s hands when he confronts him on the docks.  John stops Brody from killing Mitch with his bare hands.  Brody’s desperate to get to Jessica but an arriving Lowell orders his men to detain him.  Lowell has John arrested after John stops the cops from going after Brody when he makes a run for it.  Jessica falls into Nurse Charles’ clutches.  Charlie and Dorian seal their pact.  Langston doesn’t resist Ford when he kisses 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.
