Starr visits a delusional Marty at St. Ann’s. As Marty’s memory starts to clear up she begins to remember Natalie’s secret. Jessica and Brody decide to marry right away. They convince Natalie and John to join them in a double-wedding. As Aubrey is about to tell the Buchanan family about Clint’s treachery, Clint stops her and apologizes for having disowned Joey. Cutter visits Dorian on a pretense and while he’s there the yearbook from the Paris boarding school Aubrey supposedly attended arrives.  He hides it from Dorian. The yearbook photo reveals that Aubrey Wentworth isn’t who she claims to be. Dorian surmises Aubrey has something on Clint.  Echo discovers that Shane is being bullied and he begs her not to tell his folks. When Rex and Gigi arrive, Echo keeps the problem to herself.  Rex questions Echo about his paternity, and that he’s considering getting another DNA test.  Echo warns him to leave it alone. Dorian and Kelly are worried that the requested boarding school yearbook hasn’t arrived so they can prove Aubrey is a fake. Dorian tells Kelly she thinks Aubrey had something on Clint. Dorian suggests Kelly tell Joey the truth about her feelings.  Kelly thinks if they don’t find something in the yearbook, it’s a lost cause. Aubrey and Cutter doctor the yearbook and Cutter slips it back into Dorian’s house on the pretext of a date with Kelly. Kelly and Dorian see nothing amiss and Kelly decides to give up on Joey. She kisses Cutter to seal the deal. Rex hints to Joey that Kelly has feelings for him. He tears off to find Kelly but sees her kissing Cutter. Clint gets a visit from Vimal who requests invitations to the double wedding. Clint instead intimidates him to find out who he told about the DNA switching and fires him. Vimal finds Rama at the spa, and she doesn’t tell him it was she who told Aubrey. Clint has a camera planted in Aubrey’s room. Bo and John try to get Clint’s men to flip on him but they don’t. Brody walks into it and John & Bo end up telling him about their suspicions about Clint.  Brody is troubled but won’t say anything to Jessica. Rex comes to Bo, troubled about Clint maybe being his father. Bo tells Rex all the horrible things Clint has done. Rex calls Dorian and lies, saying he did the DNA test and Clint isn’t his father. Jessica and Natalie try on wedding dresses and are excited about their bachelorette party.  Rex tells John and Brody they’re having a bachelor party. Natalie and Jessica have a bachelorette party while John and Brody say goodbye to their bachelorhood. Dorian and Viki clash with Echo. Joey and Kelly separately confess their conflict about each other to Shaun and Vivian. Aubrey admits to Rama that she used privileged information to blackmail Clint. A chance meeting with Todd gives Vimal the confidence he needs to stand up to Clint.

On their mutual wedding day, Natalie wakes from a nightmare about Marty telling John he’s not the baby’s father, while Jess has a nightmare in which she wakes up in bed with Ford. The girls put aside what they assume are pre-wedding jitters and get ready for the big day.  John and Brody also get ready at John’s place, where Starr shows up to tell John about her visit with Marty.  Hearing that Marty’s more lucid, Brody goes to see Natalie and suggests they tell John and Jess they slept together before Marty can. Marty flees St. Ann’s and shows up at John’s door. Kelly and Joey remain locked in the storage room, where Kelly finally admits to her feelings for Joey. Their near kiss is aborted when they’re rescued. Aubrey and Cutter review their plans and discuss their relationship, unaware that they are being recorded. Cutter discovers the hidden camera only after Clint’s man has retrieved the damning tape. With Langston’s help and the knowledge that James is longing for her, Starr finally realizes she must tell Cole she has to move on. She heads to Statesville, looking forward to starting a relationship with James upon her return, unaware that at that very moment things have heated up between James and Michelle.  Ford vows to be employed before his Valentine’s Day date with Langston.

As the double wedding fast approaches, Marty tells John it was Natalie who kidnapped her. John thinks Marty is still in the throes of derangement, but Marty insists it was the other way around. Marty’s foggy, though, about why Natalie abducted her, saying only that it had something to do with Brody. Natalie convinces Brody to keep quiet about their one-nighter. Rama plots her husband’s revenge on Clint Buchanan. Aubrey and Cutter freak out about the camera, fearing that Clint knows everything. Joey arrives and is forced to tell Aubrey that he and Kelly were locked up together in a storage closet all night. Kelly tells Blair about the night with Joey.  Bo threatens to expose Clint’s wrongdoings to the rest of the family.

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.
