Marty tells Todd the whole story. Todd presses her to leave but she’s having a fit of remorse. Todd tells her she’s suffered enough. He promises he’ll tell John about the baby. John arrives and is face to face with Todd. Meanwhile, Brody searches Todd’s house, to Tea’s dismay, as John has found Tomas with the baby at the poolhouse. Tomas claims he heard the baby crying and found him. John brings the baby to Brody and tells him to take his son to Natalie. Tea argues with John about Tomas, convincing him not to arrest him but to go after Marty. Tea asks Tomas if what he told the cops was true, and he swears it is. Tea remembers Todd keeping her out of the poolhouse previously. Tomas makes a phone call to Calmar, telling him they dodged a bullet. Natalie is at the hospital with Roxy, who doesn’t get a chance to reveal the tape recorder to her before Brody comes in with the baby. It’s a huge happy reunion. Roxy tries to play the recorder. After depositing Shane at the gym, with Cristian showing Shane the ropes, Gigi goes back to Buenos Dias where Blair is with Jack. Jack tells Blair about police cars at Todd’s and Blair calls Tea, learning about the search for Marty.

Gigi arrives and refuses to serve Jack. Blair and Gigi argue. Jack tells Blair he’s going to the library but goes to the gym to torment Shane. Shane intentionally drops a barbell on Jack’s toe. Jack cries and Shane laughs at him. Gigi arrives and takes Shane back to BD and warns him to find more effective ways to resolve conflict. Blair tells Jack she knows he came to the gym to make trouble for Shane, and she sends him home. Jack texts a warning to Shane. Shane tells him to bring it. Rama cries on Cristian’s shoulder about her inability to tell Vimal the truth about the baby. They have a fraught moment. She moves away but then returns to apologize and ends up kissing him. John questions Todd. Todd has the truth about Liam’s paternity on the tip of his tongue but John’s aggressive tactics ultimately lead him to keep quiet. John arrests Todd. Meanwhile, Téa confronts Tomas about his and Todd’s involvement with Marty and Liam. Tomas denies all, but Téa is skeptical, and her misgivings grow when she gets a call from Todd saying John arrested him. Téa arrives at the police station to bail out Todd. Blair calls Tomas a hero for bringing Liam to the police. Natalie and Brody discuss their surprising second kiss. At first they explain it away as a side effect of their relief at having Liam returned safe and sound. But they quickly admit there might be more at play. They agree on several points, most of all that it would be too complicated. At St. Ann’s, Ford and Tess are still absorbing the shock of realizing (privately) that they are falling for the other. They are on the verge of divulging the truth when Joey and Aubrey arrive to retrieve Ryder. Tess pretends to be Jessica in an attempt to get free of St. Ann’s, but Joey sees through her. Joey and Aubrey leave with Ryder, and Ford and Tess’s feelings for one another remain unsaid. Cutter makes himself at home in Asa’s mansion. Vimal, released from prison as a result of Téa’s legal maneuvering, arrives in search of Rama.  Meanwhile at Serenity Springs, Rama has a hard time keeping her hands of Cristian. Back at Asa’s mansion, Vimal is dismayed to learn that Rama has been living there with Cutter. Rama returns just as Cutter is letting slip that she is not pregnant. Rama is forced to confirm this, though she maintains that her reason for lying was to protect him. Alone with Rama, Cutter later points out that she did it for the money. Rama threatens to out Cutter’s other mysterious secret should he tell Vimal the truth. Back at Serenity Springs, Blair advises Cris to stay away from married women. Cris hears her, but at can’t shake thoughts of Rama.

Natalie expresses her gratitude to John for his role in bringing Liam back safely. She tells John she remembered having Marty’s tape recording with her when they argued on the roof. John and Natalie share a close moment that’s broken when Brody returns. Meanwhile, Todd is about to tell Tea about Marty’s secret of having switched Liam’s paternity records, but he changes his mind when he hears Brody tell Tea how much Liam means to him. John’s return and continued suspicion and antagonism toward Todd convinces Todd to keep Marty’s secret at least a little longer. Starr tells James about taking Hope to see Cole and that Hope didn’t want to leave her Daddy. James offers to help in any way he can. Things turn romantic, but Starr has to go home to Hope before things go too far. Gigi and Shane tell Rex about the latest incident with Jack. Rex is glad Shane’s fighting back and he and Gigi share the hope that the bullying problem will finally be put to rest. Meanwhile, Jack plots revenge against Shane, who apparently takes the bait when he “friends” a cute girl on MyFace. The girl, however, is a fabrication by Jack and Brad, but unbeknownst to them, Shane is well aware they’re behind the ruse and has a plan of his own. Viki learns that after Ford visited Tess, Tess became violent. She is stubbornly refusing to let Jessica out. The doctor feels it’s time to try electro-convulsive therapy. He assures Viki that the procedure is no longer the draconian measure it used to be and that it will likely be the key to getting Jessica back. Viki is reluctant, but after a hostile conversation with Tess, she gives her approval. Viki visits Ford to warn him not to visit Tess again, revealing that Tess is about to undergo ECT. Ford freaks, worrying that he’s going to lose Tess forever. Ford reveals to James that he is falling for Tess while Tess admits the same thing about Ford to Bess. Both James and Bess express concern that this emotional connection will end badly, but neither Ford nor Tess is willing to give up.

Matthew’s doctor presents Nora and Bo with news that there’s no change in Matthew’s condition. They are presented with 2 options but Nora refuses to consider pulling the plug on Matthew. Rex arrives and Bo is too overwhelmed with grief for Matthew to think straight. Eventually, he asks Rex about Clint. Rex reveals that he’s waiting for a compatible heart from a B- donor. Bo realizes and very reluctantly reveals that Matthew is B-. Rex and Gigi almost catch Shane corresponding with ComicGal1. They tell him that they’ve decided to get married at City Hall today. Gigi discovers Shane’s correspondence and thinks it’s sweet. But Shane, feeling guilty, reveals that he’s pretty sure ComicGal1 is Jack Manning. Starr learns about Matthew’s condition from Danielle. She visits Matthew and discovers the relationship between Destiny and Matthew. Nate calls Dani, hoping for good news about Matthew. When there is none, Nate grows even more concerned that he caused Matthew’s brain bleed. James arrives with news of a job for Deanna.

Nora leaps to the wrong conclusion when she overhears Bo and Rex discussing the odds that Matthew’s heart may be a match for Clint. The possibility of giving up on Matthew, much less giving his heart to Clint, is a non-starter for Nora. Elsewhere, Clint breaks the news to Joey and Natalie that he doesn’t have long to live. Clint advises Natalie and Joey to fight for John and Kelly. Meanwhile, Kelly and John make the mostly mutual decision to end their dalliance. John happens on Natalie, distraught over her father’s faltering health, while Joey seeks solace from Kelly. Rex confronts Clint, whose doctor approaches Bo and Nora about donating Matthew’s heart.

Mother and son have an emotional conversation as they prepare for her wedding to Rex. Gigi sends Shane ahead to the courthouse without her and Gigi decides to take care of Jack herself. Starr comforts Destiny, distraught over Matthew. Starr is concerned for Destiny.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Trevor Donovan, Wayne Brady, Daniel Durant & Gabby Windey Impress Judges On ‘Elvis Night’

In the second episode of Dancing with the Stars new season exclusively on Disney+, it was ‘Elvis Night’ and the couples put on a show for the judges performing to songs by ‘The King of Rock and Roll.”

Before the stars and their pro partners hit the ballroom floor, hosts Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro, revealed that since dancer, Daniella Karagach tested positive for Covid-19 Sunday night.  Therefore, her celebrity partner Joseph Baena had to mask up through the evening and perform his planned routine with a temporarily replacement, Alexis Warr. As well, a few others in the cast who were noted to be in close proximity of Karagach, also wore masks during the live show and their performances.

Here’s a rundown of a few of the performances that wowed the judges for various reasons.

Trevor Donovan (ex-Days, 92010) and Emma Slater – The duo danced the Rumba to the Elvis Classic “Always on My Mind.” Donovan, who keeps letting us know in the pre-package that he is not comfortable as a dancer, did a complete 180 from opening night and delivered what the judges deemed a very sexy routine with Emma. The judges (Carrie Ann, Bruno, Len and Derek) were impressed by Trevor’s hip rotation, his arm extensions through the dance, and of course his abs! Derek Hough said it best in his feedback to Donovan following the routine, “Remember when you were scared of dance? You love dance.” Score: 30 out of 40

Wayne Brady (ex-The Bold and the Beautiful, Let’s Make a Deal) and Witney Carson –  Dancing the Jive to “Burning Love”, Brady, who is great at impersonations anyway, brought some of the Elvis moves, facial expressions and ticks to the routine. In the pre-package, Wayne revealed he has trouble with one of his knees. The performance was highly-entertaining given the choreography and closed the show.  The judges told Wayne to pace himself and protect his knees, because he is a wonderful dancer and they want to see him make it through the entire season. Score: 30 out of 40

Gabby Windey (The Bachelotette) and Val Chmerkovskiy – The dance duo took to the floor to perform a classic Viennese Waltz to “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” During the pre-package, Windey, who is also a former Denver Broncos cheerleader, felt she was ‘lost in space” doing so many twirls, but she clearly got it all under control and with Val by her side, her new fiancé Eric Schwer in the house. Val and Gabby delivered a stellar performance.  The ending of the routine was punctuated by Windey walking over to Schwer, who entered the edge of the dance floor, to give him a smooch. Score: 32 out of 40

Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart – Taking on Elvis’ “King Creole”, this dance duo performed the Jive.  It is amazing to witness from the pre-package to the actual performance, how Britt communicates with Daniel, who is deaf, and how Durant is able to feel the vibrations, watch Stewart’s face and inhabit a character so well, without barely any missteps. The most noticeable, and the most difficult challenge posed to Durant, is dancing in the side-by-side sections where precision/synch is always favored upon by the judges. In the DWTS audience were Durant’s CODA co-stars, Oscar Winners Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur, rooting hm on. It was an impressive performance! Of note: how much did we love Durant’s two moms showing up in rehearsal and dancing some moves from the routing with him! Score: 29 out of 40

WWE SMACKDOWN: Roman Reigns Officially Makes Sami Zayn ‘Honorary Uce’ In Heart-Stopping Moment

Talk about your soap opera and great performances!  Last Friday’s WWE Friday Night Smackdown on Fox featured what could go down as a classic opening segment involving The Head of the Table/WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns and tag-along member of the ‘Bloodline’, Sami Zayn.

With the entire Bloodline in the ring and present (The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, Reigns and honorary member, Zayn) it set the stage for a potentially dangerous situation for Zayn.  Even though Sami is a heel, the fans were in Zayn’s corner for this every step of the away, if you just listened to the pop from the crowd.

First, Reigns demanded for Solo Sikoa to acknowledge him, since the youngest members of the Usos is the new enforcer of the Bloodline. Solo did just that in short order, and as the group was preparing to make their ring exit, Zayn stopped The Bloodline as he wanted his chance to acknowledge Reigns as his Tribal Chief, too.  That prompted Reigns to question Zayn as to why he was up in their business and wearing the ‘Bloodline’ t-shirt.

Suddenly, it became apparent that Zayn was going to be set-up to be the victim of a beatdown by the family. The moments were so tense that you honestly could not have guessed which way this was going to go – but things were looking bleak for Sami.

Reigns verbally assaulted Zayn for hanging around and wearing ‘The Bloodline’s’ shirt. Roman ordered Zayn to take off the shirt as Zayn’s enemy number one, Jey Uso, demanded the same thing of him.  Next, Uso ripped the t-shirt off Zayn and the audience was scared for Sami.  However, Reigns instead presented Zayn with a new t-shirt making him officially an “Honorary Uce”.  For those who wondered, “uce” is the Samoan slang term for “brother”.  Touched and relieved, Zayn celebrated the moment with Jimmy Uso, Sikoa and then, even hugging Reigns, while Jey Uso looked on mad-as-all-get-out.

The story arc was played brilliantly by Reigns who can play disingenuous like nobody’s business, and Zayn, who can play drama and comedy as the “Bloodline” wannabe.

There are several story angles that could stem from this – one being the obvious – a feud between Jey Uso and Zayn- plus, just how long Sami will be included in the Bloodline, before it all goes south on him.

You can watch the segment below, and then a hilarious video posted on Twitter by Zane on Sunday to Kelly Clarkson’s “A Moment Like This.”

So, did you think the Bloodline was going to turn on Sami? What did you think of Zayn and Reigns work in the opening segment of WWE Friday Night Smackdown? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?
