THIS IS US Fall Finale: Deteriorating Health, A Pregnancy, A Fall-Out

On Tuesday’s night’s pivotal fall finale of This Is Us, and their annual Thanksgiving episode, the series left us with more questions and concerns for the beloved Pearson family.  This Is Us will return in January; till then we are left to ponder what we saw.

First, is what has happened to Rebecca.  From all accounts she is dealing with some form of Alzheimer’s or dementia, but it is yet to be clarified, because as we end last night’s episode, Rebecca realizes she needs to see a doctor and tells her worried son, Randall (who has been on to mom’s condition) that she got all twisted up trying to remember the movie she wanted to see while she was watching the previews.  Nine months later in the flash-forward on her way to the cabin for Kevin’s 40th birthday, she winds up in a cop car being taken there, because she got lost.

Dan Fogelman the series creator told Entertainment Weekly: “So much of this show is about memory and about looking back. So the idea that one of our characters would be faced with this incredibly scary illness where you begin to lose that and that begins to fade away felt very in keeping with the themes of the show.”

We also learn that Kevin and Randall, who were looking like the best of brothers on Turkey day, had some sort of falling out by the time we got to the fast-forward. There, we learn that Kevin is not speaking to him anymore.  Viewers are left to question what caused the friction in their relationship.

In addition at Thanksgiving, Kevin says he wants to have a family by the time he is 40.  So flash-forward, Kevin reveals that he has a pregnant fiancée.  Who’s the baby mama? It would seem Cassidy is the obvious choice, but could it be a red herring and its another woman who re-entered or entered Kevin’s life?

Kate and Toby;s marriage continues to crack, and at Thanksgiving, Kate grabs Toby’s phone to take a photo but sees a text message from someone in his crossfit group who seems to be woman, which says “Don’t let her bring you down. Here for you.”   Could Kate be misinterpreting the message?

Deja’s mom is doing well, and that could cause trouble for the Pearsons, and down the line for Beth. Will Shauna try to get her daughter back, or can everyone co-exist?

DWTS Heartbreak: James Van Der Beek Eliminated Following Reveal Of His Wife’s Miscarriage

It was the most emotional semi-finals in the history of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.  Five couples were in the running and by the end of the two-hour broadcast on Monday night, one would be eliminated.

But no one expected it to go the way it did in a shocking and heartbreaking turn of events.  Considered by many the top frontrunner to take the Mirror Ball Trophy, former Dawson’s Creek star, James Van Der Beek, announced in tears during the broadcast that his wife, Kimberly who was pregnancy with their sixth child, miscarried over the weekend.

But things got even more painful from there.  In an attempt to make the finals next week each duo had to perform a “redemption dance” chosen by the judges as the worst dance from their season, followed by a new routine.

Van Der Beek and his pro partner, Emma Slater performed a Cha-Cha which did not go over well with the judges, causing them by the end of the night to be the lowest scoring couple on the leaderboard.  But it was before his second dance that Van Der Beek shared the news of his his wife’s miscarriage.  He then danced an emotional tango in her honor.

Across the board the judges chose Ally and Sasha.  What followed was pure shock in the audience.  Then, Ally Brooke broke town in tears pleasing for the judges and the producers to give her spot to Van Der Beek in the finals

“Can I give it to James, please?” Brooke expressed through her tears.  Van Der Beek would not allow her to do that and the show went off the air with co-host Erin Andrews, judge Carrie Ann Inaba and the viewers in America, in sadness.

Van Der Beek took to his Twitter account to thank those who supported him and his family during their difficult time following the loss of their unborn child: “Wrecked. Devastated. In shock. That’s how we’re feeling right now after the soul we thought were going to welcome into our family has taken a short cut to whatever lies beyond this life. There are no words… thank you everyone for the love & support. It’s exactly what we need.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Needs Fatherly Advice From Tony As Ryan Carnes and Brad Maule Deliver Tender Scenes

Friday’s highly-touted episode of ABC;s General Hospital featured the return of Brad Maule in the role of Dr. Tony Jones, the adoptive father of Lucas(Ryan Carnes) and former husband to Bobbie (Jackie Zeman).

It has been years since fan favorite Maule graced the GH screens, but the writers found a way to conjure him up in Lucas’ mind as Lucas is in a pivotal moment in his life; his bio-dad Julian Jerome (William deVry) is blackmailing his husband, Brad (Parry Shen), and Brad is keeping secrets from Lucas.  All spell bad news to Lucas for raising his son, Wiley.  But as GH fans know, Wiley is not the baby that Lucas thinks he is raising with Brad- he is actually raising Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) child, which Brad knows!

So, needing some clarity and visiting his adoptive dad’s gravesite, Lucas sees the vision of Tony, and the former father and son have a heart to heart.  Tony tells Lucas how raising him as  little boy gave him the strength and courage to go on through the hard times, and how to be their for his little boy.  Lucas is just emotionally overwrought and so burdened by the lies those who say that they supposedly love him have been telling.

At the same time, Julian is searching for Lucas, and happens upon Bobbie at the hospital. She really does not like Julian and the two land at the GH hospital wall where plaques of the beloved doctors and nurses who have passed away are seen.  Bobbie knows Julian could never be the kind of father, Tony was to Lucas.  Julian says he can never replace Tony, but he is Lucas’ father and wants to somehow do right by him.

Later alone, Bobbie talks to Tony’s photo and we see a heartfelt moment where Tony touches Bobbie’s hand and touches her on the cheek. Something Bobbie feels as she remembers this once great love of hers. At the end of the episode Julian finds Lucas at Tony’s gravesite. What will their confrontation bring?

Kudos to Ryan Carnes, who was the emotional heart of this episode and who made us feel every moment of Lucas’s anguish. And … how wonderful to see Brad Maule again!

So, what did you think of Tony’s visit to Lucas and Bobbie on Friday’s GH? Comment below. But first watch some key scenes between them.
