Brody comes close to telling Natalie that John is really Liam’s dad. But before he can do so, Natalie reveals that she told John that she and Brody were together now, that they’re going to be a family with their son. Brody keeps the secret to himself. Vimal is about to spill all to John when Todd interrupts. Vimal is still insistent, though, but John discovers that Ford has abducted Jessica. When he’s gone, Todd offers Vimal a job, and he also threatens him. When John returns, Vimal keeps quiet. Jessica and Ford come to an understanding. Jessica agrees to let him be a father to Ryder. When John arrives to rescue Jessica, she refuses to press charges against Ford. Aubrey and Rama don’t believe that Ford’s sexual prowess made the woman in his room scream that way. They call the police on Ford. Cutter shows up, having been ejected from the Palace. He and Aubrey have it out about Joey and Tess. Aubrey and Rama allow him to crash in their room. Rama misses Vimal.

Shane bursts in on Clint and Viki, blasting him for living while his mother has died. Rex takes him out, after agreeing with his son. Rex explains to Shane his purpose in trading Gigi’s heart for Clint’s money – he wants to get even with Jack and Todd. They prepare to move out of the carriage house and into Asa’s mansion. Meanwhile Jack balks at going to work for Todd, as he starts to feel genuine remorse over Gigi’s death. Blair confronts Todd about getting Jack off the hook and tells Jack he’ll never feel okay about this unless he admits the truth. Jack takes off in Todd’s car. Jack comes to talk to Shane, and they’re face to face. Bo visits Clint and Clint assumes Bo is there about his arrest for the crimes he confessed to. The men make significant eye contact about how Clint stands by his confession of killing Eddie, and Viki realizes Clint is covering for someone. She guesses that it’s Matthew (after Bo is gone) and warns him not to waste his new chance at life by going to jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Matthew struggles to tell Nora that it was Nate who hit him, but instead he has a seizure. The doctor tells Bo and Nora that there’s nothing he can do for him here. Nate tells Rick he may as well not bother blackmailing him and Deanna because Matthew is better and will eventually talk. Rick goes to the hospital and finds out that, in fact, Matthew is having a seizure and is not better. Dani comes upon Nate sharing this news with Deanna and hugging. They argue, leading to Nate blurting: why didn’t you tell me Matthew killed my father? Meanwhile Deanna runs into Rick and he tells her Matthew took a turn for the worst and she better do his porn film. James shares with Deanna his dislike of Baz, as Baz and Starr make music together. Baz is surprisingly good with Hope. James returns to Deanna, bummed that Baz has a way with Hope and he doesn’t, among other things. Dani confronts Destiny about the pregnancy test in her purse. Destiny makes light of it but Dani makes her promise to call if she decides to take it. Destiny takes the test.

Todd finds Jack at the Carriage House and pre-empts his confession to Rex and Shane about his responsibility for Gigi’s death. Todd covers with condolences and comments about Brad’s ostensible guilt. To everyone’s surprise, Rex welcomes the sympathy and suggests, for Gigi’s sake, that they bury the hatchet and move forward peaceably. After Todd and Jack leave, however, Rex tells Shane he was only pretending to let bygones be bygones in order to take Todd and Jack by surprise when he destroys them for what they did to his family. Nate and Dani argue about having kept secrets from each other – Dani’s that she knew Matthew had killed Eddie, and Nate’s that he knew Dani knew. Ultimately, they make up, though Nate keeps one more secret, that he was responsible for Matthew’s condition. Bo and Nora agree to send Matthew to an out-of-town rehab center specializing in traumatic brain injury. Destiny takes a pregnancy test and tells unconscious Matthew she’s pregnant. She’s frightened and confused and when Dani asks about the results, she lies and tells her the test was negative.

When Dorian checks on Clint’s condition, Viki blasts her for having left Clint untreated too long. Their friendship is strained, playing right into Echo’s plan to destroy Viki and Dorian. The other part of Echo’s plan is furthered when David gets a surprise poolside visit from Ionia who once again throws herself at him. Unbeknownst to David, Echo covertly snaps seemingly salacious photos. Dorian returns after Ionia leaves and David chooses not to tell her about the actress’s visit. Dorian finds out, however, when the photos hit the internet. Blair encounters Tomas and is unable to tell him the truth about Jack’s involvement in Gigi’s death. Tomas suspects she’s keeping a secret and she blasts him about all the secrets he’s keeping from her. Their passionate argument turns into to a passionate kiss.

The man with Todd’s original face skulks around Llanfair, nearly making contact with Viki.  At EOD Viki is on the verge of catching him. John questions Vimal about the statement he pulled back from making last night, but Vimal again bites his tongue. Vimal is let go – for now – but with a tail, thanks to John. As a result, John learns that Vimal has gone to work for Todd. Meanwhile, Brody continues to fret about his knowledge that Liam is not his son – and Marty’s taped confession that could out it all. Later, John enlists Brody in a new project: Bringing down Todd, once and for all. Brody signs on. John needs to iron out a few details, chief among them a piece of missing evidence from the investigation into Gigi’s death signed out by Brody: The tape recorder. Jack starts work at the Sun but is distracted by Gigi-related news. Todd tries to keep Jack focused but is taken aback to learn a business plan was undone by the intervention of another company, Origami Cogs. Vimal arrives before Todd can delve deeper into this mystery. Vimal tells Todd about his run-in with John. After sending Jack away Todd demands details from Vimal. Jack returns as Todd and Vimal are discussing a secret Todd is keeping from John. Jack asks Todd about this secret. Blair confronts Téa about her role in Jack’s “exoneration.” Téa and Blair blame themselves for Jack’s behavior, but Todd, too. Together they decide to pay Rex and Shane their respects, but are chilled by the welcome they get. Rex and Shane prepare to receive friends and family at their new home, Asa’s mansion, where they’ll remember Gigi. Roxy is stunned and dismayed to learn of the deal that gave Gigi’s heart to Clint, and Clint’s fortune to Rex. Roxy is further appalled that Rex has fired Nigel.

Echo also takes note of the ruthless shift in Rex but ultimately gives him a pass. Rex intends to make Todd and Jack pay by doing to them what they did to him and Rex: By depriving them of their wife and mother, Téa and Blair. Dorian and David continue to spar over his alleged infidelity with Ionia. Dorian refuses to accompany David while he gives his condolences to Rex and Shane. Left alone, Dorian signs for a package addressed to David, assumed to be from Ionia. At the mansion, David, Viki, Jessica and Natalie visit Rex and Shane. Natalie invites Jessica to talk about Brody later at Llanfair. Echo listens in and revels as David relates to Viki the turn for the worse his marriage has taken. David seeks an ally in Viki, but she is on the outs with Dorian. David returns home only to be confronted by Dorian, wielding the contents of the package: A gun. At Llanfair, Natalie tells Jessica that she and Brody have gotten together.

‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justina Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.

OLTL Alum Ryan Phillippe Weighs-In on Shocking Twist in Season Opener of ‘Big Sky’

Hold on to your seats! Last night’s highly-anticipated arrival of ABC’s new drama, Big Sky from David E, Kelley offered several shocking moments and surprises as the dark story took viewers down a twisty path as we were introduced to all the characters.

Throughout it’s promotional push the network has touted the series having three leads played by One Life to Live alum, and TV and motion picture star, Ryan Phillippe (Ex-Billy Douglas), along with Katheryn Winnick, and Kylie Bunbury

Turns out that was a set-up so viewers, who had spent the entire hour learning of the complex relationships of this threesome, and how they work together to begin to solve a crime of three young women who have gone missing and kidnapped   But then in the episode’s final moments, Phillippe’s character of PI Cody Hoyt is shot dead!

Ryan shared his thoughts on going into the series knowing his character would be killed-off right off the bat: “I was shocked certainly, and I think that’s also what made me so excited about it. So often in entertainment you can see what’s coming a month away, and to have moments in a series like this where it kind of takes your breath away, when you are absolutely shocked and did not see it coming, it’s exciting to me.”  Phillippe added: “I think it sends the message that in a series like this, no one is safe, so you really have to pay attention and hope that the people you love stick around.”

But will Phillippe’s Cody be seen on future episodes such as Milo Ventimigilia is seen on This Is Us?  Ryan told a press panel: “That’s not the last you’ll see or hear of him.”

Look for Cody to definitely appear in flashbacks, while Deadline is reporting that the actor will be seen in several more installments of the TV drama.

In story, Cody was shot by State Trooper Rick Legarski (John Carroll Lynch) who is covering-up being at the epicenter of sex trafficking ring in Montana.  While viewers saw a bloody ending, we never saw an image of a dead Cody either, we can only assume.

Did you watch the season premiere of Big Sky? What do you think of network TV becoming more like some of the hottest shows on cable with shocking and unexpected twists right off the bat as the series begin? Share your thoughts below.
