Bo calls Nora, hoping for forgiveness, but she doesn’t take the call. Rex has a nightmare about the secret he’s concealing from Bo about David. Viki shows up to thank Dorian for getting rid of Echo on Christmas. Viki insists Dorian loves David no matter what she says. Viki gets called by John with the news that Jessica is in the hospital. John waits for Natalie at the hospital, who is still at the hearing room confronting Marty over her attempt to break up their wedding by revealing the truth about Brody. Marty is about to run off to the hospital and Natalie stops her but Marty falls, hitting her head.

Starr reveals to Langston what happened after she and James kissed on NYE.  James tells Ford the same story.  Ford and Langston convince James and Starr to do something about this thwarted relationship. Bo tries to talk to Nora, but she has nothing to say to him.  Rex plants the seeds in Bo’s mind that Inez might have drugged him.

As Natalie plans to leave, however, she feels her first labor pain. Inez gets upset when Bo questions whether or not they actually had sex. Bo later tells John he thinks Inez lied to him.  Todd arrives at court to hear Tea suggesting he killed Eddie.  Thinking he’s helping Starr stay true to Cole, James tells her he needs to start dating.  Starr tells Dorian she’d been planning on telling James that she wanted to see where their relationship could go, but in the end she thinks his decision was the right one. David tries to explain his situation to Dorian over the phone. Dorian remains determined to move on while David remains determined to get free. With Cristian’s help, Blair opens the mysterious box from Eli and finds an oil portrait of herself. About to abandon Marty at the Buchanan lodge, Natalie goes into labor.

Marty leaves Natalie helpless and about to have her baby. Jessica awaits test results with Brody, Clint, Viki and Charlie. Vivian tells them Jessica has a condition that puts her and the baby at risk, and it’s caused by scar tissue from a gunshot wound. Clint blasts Charlie, who is the one who shot Jessie in the abdomen. Jessica does not want to have the urgent c-section because she is scared the baby’s not ready, but after Viki and Brody plead with her to protect herself too, she agrees. Dorian realizes that Echo is exploiting her drinking problem to get close to Charlie. Echo meets Charlie at an AA meeting and she confesses she bought some vodka after a run-in with Dorian. Charlie helps her throw it away in the trash. Dorian infiltrates the AA meeting incognita. Charlie fishes the vodka out of the trash. At Nate’s arraignment, Tea tells Todd she thinks Inez may have killed Eddie. The judge grants Tea’s motion to throw out the charges, but Nate announces he’s guilty. Nate is taken to jail. Bo tells John he thinks Inez is lying and may have drugged him. John realizes this would have given her the opportunity to murder Eddie.

THE BACHELORETTE: After Being Pissed Off About Hannah’s Naked Bungee Jumping with Garrett; Luke P. Survives Another Week

Here’s how to rankle the ire of Luke P.!  Tell him you went bungee jumping naked with “his girl” Hannah, the ‘Bachelorette’! That is just what Garrett told Luke P. on Monday’s installment of The Bachelorette, after his fearless stripped encounter with the girl all the men are trying to get that final rose from.

“We decide to bungee jump naked. Naked!” Garrett, told the other eight guys left in the reality-dating competition sending Luke P. into orbit. In a confessional Luke P. says, “Who would want to be naked with that guy? There is no way Hannah went bungee jumping naked with Garrett.” However, later in a Latvian group date to all, Hannah confirmed the naked bungee jumping escapade.

Later, Luke P told Hannah: “Have you ever been cheated on in your relationship? You know that feeling, your stomach turns inside out? It’s just twisted. I’m not gonna lie, I had that feeling this morning. We were about to get sent off for the group date and Garrett stated blurting out a whole bunch of stuff about what happened with you guys on the one-and-one and honestly, like it was hard for me to receive. And it’s just because I know that your body is a temple and honestly I’m just thinking of you holding him, bare-skinned and I’m just thinking in my mind it just pissed me off, it really frustrated me.”  He apparently terms his time with Hannah on the show as making them an “official couple” which pissed her off.

Shocked, Luke P. later tells the cameras in his confessional: “Her body is her temple and to expose it to anyone who isn’t her husband, that was a slap in my face. If she really is the one for me, which I believe she is, there’s a lot of answers that I need. I have to say something.”

Hannah talked to Luke P. before the rose ceremony and said: “I so appreciate you coming to me and having a real conversation and actually sharing concerns because I respect that a lot, but the conversation, it didn’t sit well with me. The issues were the language that you used to describe why you were upset. You felt like it was a slap in the face because you want to spend the rest of your life with me and then you said, ‘We all make boneheaded mistakes.’ Oh, there was one other thing that really hurt me that you said. You were talking about me meeting your family and you wanted to be able to feel confident in doing that and it was referring to the bungee jumping thing and I was like, what does that mean with me meeting your family? I told you it wasn’t a sexual thing at all and it wasn’t. But even if it was, at this point it doesn’t matter because you’re not my husband. You don’t own my body, you don’t own me. It’s my body.”  Luke P. couldn’t offer much of an explanation to her point of view, but then promised, “It will be worth it if you just please keep fighting.”

After her decision to skip the cocktail party and go straight to the rose ceremony, Hannah axed only Dylan and Dustin, meaning Jed, Mike, Connor, Peter, Garrett and Tyler C. were still in, and the last rose of the ceremony was given to, once again, Luke P. with a message from Hannah: “There’s goodness inside of you, and I see that.”

When host Chris Harrison could not understand why Hannah kept Luke P. in the running all she could say was “I’m either falling in love with Luke, or Luke is making me go crazy. I’m not sure which one.”  Fade to black another dramatic conclusion.

So, why do you think Hannah has not thrown Luke P. to the curb at this point?  Will he ultimately be the last man standing when all is said and done? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Is Named Police Commissioner In Port Charles; But They Say It’s Temporary

In a cool move, the powers-that-be at ABC’s General Hospital, had Laura (Genie Francis), the now mayor of Port Charles, name none other than former commish, Mac Scorpio (John J, York) as interim police commissioner while Jordan (Brian Nicole Henry) recovers from her kidney transplant and needs some time to recover from her medical ordeal.

Now while the show is making sure in story it is stated that Mac is the temporary person in charge of the PCPD, for many longtime fans of the series, they remember fondly when Mac held down the position for years.

In the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, York said on the surprise story turn: “I was thrilled when Frank Valentini (EP, GH) told me!” He added that he was advised there was great story coming up, and added, “That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to see what is going on.  However long it lasts, I’ll take whatever I can get and I’m really looking forward to being back in there.  There is a whole nee squad. a whole new group of people. I don’t even know who these cops are anymore!”

Shortly after being named commissioner on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Mac is already getting wind of some criminal activities and things that seem way off; from Lulu’s (Emme Rylan) new assignment with The Intruder, to his brother Robert (Tristan Rogers), being pushed out of the WSB and forced to retire, and much more.   Can Mac get the police department to solve some crimes ..> for once?

So, what do you think of John J. York getting to be back in action at the PCPD? Do you hope somehow the story turns and remains in the position even after Jordan is well, or are you hoping Jordan can get back into the swing of things fast and return to her job? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

‘Dynasty’ Season Two Finale: Double-Cross Upon Double-Cross; Two Bodies Dredged From The Water, Another Goes Into The Pool

On Friday night’s CW Dynasty season two finale, in true “soap opera on steroid” fashion; you needed a scorecard to check who was zoomin’ who! There was plenty of backstabbing, murderous intent, deceit and more, culminating in the re-wedding of Blake (Grant Show) and Cristal (Ana Brenda Contreras) with the lake and a pool set as a major backdrop on how viewers will be left wanting to know the outcome in this juicy cliffhanger.  But alas, folks! You will have to wait for the series upcoming third season to get all the answers.

And we just got to say, Elizabeth Gilles (Fallon) is a gem and the show would not be the same without her, but here’s how things were left for the Carringtons and company as we fade to black on the climatic final moments.

Sicko bad boy, Adam (Sam Underwood) has serious anger management issues.  When Jeff Colby (Sam Adegoke) learns the news that he has neurological disease, caused by the poison he ingested thanks to Adam, and that he will die, he puts a plan in motion.  He stages his own death. We believe Adam killed him, but in actuality it is revealed he was in cahoots with Dominique (Michael Michele).  After we see the flashback (as Jeff is heading to the Bahamas with the secret that he is dying), he knows they have Adam’s cuff-link planted at the scene of the crime that will do him in.  He says goodbye to his mother and sister and boards a plane.  But then, Dominique shows us that she went back and grabbed Adam’s cuff-link and is in cahoots with Blake.  She threw her own son under the bus!

Liam (Adam Huber) and Fallon have gotten oh-so-close, but not before Adam plants a letter on Fallon’s desk that Liam fathered a child … and later Fallon comes clean that during a drunken high school binge with a friend, the two got in an argument and the girl fell down a flight of stairs and the family covered it up.  Adam overheard the whole thing.  Next, Liam and Fallon go to the water in a row boat where Fallon proposes to him, with a valuable family ring from Liam’s family.  After Liam accepts the proposal, they make-out and the ring drops into the water.  Later, when Liam confronts Adam about the letter he knows he left for Fallon; Adam clubs Liam in the head and locks him up just outside the pool at the mansion.  Liam was about to expose Adam for all his lies and crimes.

Later, a shocked Fallon sees that her father and Cristal are getting re-married and their counter attack on Culhane (Robert Christopher Riley) has worked.  Culhane is being arrested by the feds.  Fallon sold her company to Kirby (Maddison Brown) for $1 dollar to help reunite with her father in business, but since her father double-crossed her, she tells Kirby she wants her business back.  Kirby says she is not selling it back, because she tried to get Culhane to break up with her. Then, Blake demands Anders (Alan Dale) marry him and Cristal now, but Anders refuses.  He already made a deal with Sammy Jo (Rafael de La Fuente) to help run the hotel and is leaving Blake’s employ following his recent hospital stay and health scare.

All of a sudden, the divers who Adam hired to locate the MIA engagement ring, find two bodies in the water. Blake mutters that he knows who one of them is. Adam flashes back to a scene with Steven (James MacKay), where Steven tells him how the young girl’s death was covered up.  And yup, it was revealed that one of the bodies was the young girl that Fallon got into the drunken altercation with all those years ago.  The second boy has not been ID’d yet.  This is juxtaposed with Liam, who has made it out of lock-up by the pool.  He screams “Fallon” but he is so disoriented that he eventually falls into the pool face first, and all we can assume is that he has drowned.  But, will he be rescued?  Who will the second body turn out to be that was found in the lake? And … when will Adam and Alexis (Elizabeth Gilles) put their plan into motion? When we last saw Alexis a few episodes ago, we saw that she has a brand new face, identical to that of Fallon’s!  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of the season two finale of Dynasty? Comment below!
