Todd is released from the hospital and is not pleased to discover that Tomas has been living at his house in his absence. Tea gets the charges against Tomas dropped and expects Tomas to move out, but after Tea leaves, Tomas tells Todd he’s not going anywhere. He reminds Tomas he has no choice in the matter, but Todd presents an alternative in the form of a gun. Bo and Nora aren’t convinced Tomas is innocent, despite having to release him from custody. Destiny comes to see Matthew, who is shocked by Clint’s confession to Eddie’s murder. Destiny begs Matt to let his uncle take the rap for him and rushes off to do damage control with Dani. Throughout the day, Matthew nurses a searing headache brought on by the injury he sustained when Nate punched him. Bo and Nora return home and Bo tells Matthew that Clint confessed because he’s dying. Matt is nonetheless determined to take responsibility for the murder and starts to tell his parents someone else knows the truth, but before he can name Nate, he collapses. Nate tells Deanna he overheard Dani and Destiny talking about Matthew’s guilt. Nate’s surprised when he sees Dani and she says nothing to him about it, but instead pretends she believes Clint’s confession. John comes to see Kelly, hopeful for information about Marty’s whereabouts but Kelly is unable to enlighten him. It comes out that Joey’s feelings for Kelly have been rekindled in the face of her near death, and Kelly suspects John’s feelings have been similarly stirred by the thought of losing Natalie and Liam. Before Aubrey can tell Joey the truth herself, Joey blasts her about her lying and scheming. Aubrey is forced to admit she set out to woo and rob Joey, but she fell in love with him. Joey is unimpressed and admits to his feelings for Kelly. He orders Aubrey out of the mansion, but Aubrey reminds him they need to stay married to retain custody of Ryder. Bo and Nora scramble to figure out what’s wrong with Matthew. When he doesn’t rouse, they panic and take him to the ER. He has a brain bleed and needs surgery immediately. Todd would shoot Tomas, but Tomas attempts to prove that to do so would be destroy Todd’s life. When Tea arrives home, Todd surprises her with news that he wants Tomas to live with them. Brody arrives and he wants to know what Todd knows about Brody’s missing son. Blair’s torn about her feelings for Tomas. Starr points out that nothing is ever perfect in affairs of the heart. Brody questions Tess who doesn’t give him an inch. But Brody levels with Tess about the baby. Bess emerges and gives Brody the name Todd Manning. Cutter’s all set to put his plan into motion. He tells Tess he’ll meet her at Capricorn after he gets the money. Tess questions him, but he assures her he’s going to get them set up so that they can disappear and she’ll be able to remain Tess forever, but we see that Cutter is betraying her. He shows up to Clint and tells him that he’s ready to commit Tess. Meanwhile, Tess walks in on Ford kissing his date. Viki challenges Clint about his claim that he killed Eddie Ford. Tea arrives to prevent Clint from answering. Clint is concerned about Tess’s marriage to Cutter. He wants Tea to go over the divorce and marriage documents to see if they’re legal. Tea says they are, and isn’t sure what can be done. Clint regrets his meddling with the paternity test. Tea admonishes him to consider engaging her services to prevent a long prison sentence for Eddie Ford’s murder. Clint, knowing he doesn’t have long to live, is vague. Viki again presses about Eddie, but Cutter shows up to pressure Clint about paying him to commit Tess. Ford is doing volunteer work with kids at the hospital. A nurse takes notice and they go out for a drink together. She reveals that she gave him a sponge bath when he was in the hospital last summer and he made a pass at her. He tells her he wishes he could still be that guy, but he’s changed. He’s trying to get back on his feet with women.  She kisses him and Tess walks in.

Tess is dragged away while begging Ford to get her out of this and if he does, she’ll get him his son. Blair receives a visit from Tomas.

Grand Hotel

GRAND HOTEL Finale: How Sky Died, Paternity Game-Changer, And Another Mystery Begins

ABC’s Grand Hotel ended its season with several plot twists that kept the hour soapy drama in a fast and furious pace to give viewers the answers they had been waiting for, and if the show was picked-up, a cliffhanger with multiple suspects who could be responsible for this new crime.

If you have not watched the finale and intend to, do not read any further, spoilers contained herein:

Danny is finally revealed to Santiago and Gigi to be the brother of the deceased Sky.  Alicia decides to help Danny figure out what happened to his sister on the night she died in the hurricane.  Through flashbacks, we learn that Sky discovered the suicide note that Beatriz had written inside a closet full of jewelry while on a date with Yoli.  Sky used the Intel in it to blackmail Gigi, but Gigi says she does not have access to that kind of cash.   The letter contains the damaging proof that Mrs P and Santiago had a child together, Jason.  Santiago did not know.  To make matters even worse in current time, Santiago just made Gigi’s daughters: Carolina and Yoli part of his new will.

It seems that Mrs. P and Gigi kept the secret of Jason’s paternity and did not want to come out.  Helen put the hotel on lockdown, leaving Sky trapped and having to go through the only available exit to get out of the hotel, which led her into the night and the hurricane.  There, Gigi confronts her at gunpoint. However, there is a scuffle, and lo and behold, Mrs. P husband’s, Malcolm steps out of the shadows after overhearing that his wife had an fling and child with Santiago and clubbed Sky in the back causing her death.

After Gigi admitted to Santiago, while he was trying to push Danny over the hotel balcony, that she did not kill Sky, Gigi eventually reveals who it was, leading Danny and Alicia to later head to the hospital where Malcolm is dying.  Alicia confronts Mrs. P about her lies and how she hid Jason’s paternity from him and Santiago.  Meanwhile, Danny decides not to tell Malcolm’s family that he killed his sister, because as Danny says, “the universe had already found another way to punish him” – and with that – a few moments later, Malcolm dies.

Now that Santiago had learned that he is the bio-dad of Jason, he won’t forgive Gigi, who clearly does not want Jason getting more of the pie than her daughters if Santiago were to have the opportunity to adjust his will.  Meanwhile, Santiago has finally blackmailed Mateo out of his job at the hotel, but Mateo does not want the evidence on the flash drive Santiago has in his possession to come out of the deed that he has done.  Mrs P. also gets into a very intense phone conversation with Santiago and they agree to meet downstairs at the hotel.

However, as Santiago walks through the dark halls, out of the shadows gun shots are fired, and he is left bleeding out on the floor.  Did Gigi, Mateo, Helen or even someone else shoot him?  Maybe Carolina and Yoli’s father is the culprit, who is said to be returning home after finding out his daughters are now in Santiago’s will and who has no love lost for the guy!

In other stories, Javi was seduced by an older woman who turned out to be an alcoholic and Ingrid’s mother, a pissed Ingrid then hooks up with Mateo.  And  finally, as Danny goes to the ocean to say goodbye to his sister Sky by throwing her lighter into the sea, Alicia asks, what he is going to do next?  He says, he will return home to Chicago, but at that point the two of them share a passionate kiss.

Throughout the episode, the emotional heart of it was played to perfection by Lincoln Younes as Danny, who as the brother trying to avenge his sister’s death, played all the beats of his story arc.

So, what did you think of the Grand Hotel finale? What did you think of who was revealed to have killed Sky? Who do you think shot Santiago? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Goes Over A Cliff! If He Survives, Will They Redeem Him?

Now here’s a ‘cliff’-hanger moment for a Friday soap, that brought with it what could be a game-changing moment, certainly for the relationship of Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), and what looks like for Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).  For months, Thomas had become more obsessed and unhinged over keeping Hope (Annika Noelle) from her child Beth and away from the man she truly loves, Liam (Scott Clifton).

Many of Thomas’ acts have been truly despicable.  But now after a wake-up call conversation with his son, Douglas, and an attempt to set things right with Hope, who wants nothing to do with him, things take a turn when at Steffy’s,  Hope screams at Thomas to stay away from her. He tries to explain he just wants to talk to her, but she wants nothing to do with him.

We then see Brooke making it to the house, and seeing the ensuing argument,  She fears the worse and becomes in-between her daughter and her stepson, as Ridgeis also heading to the house to make sure nothing happens between Thomas and Hope.

But then, in a push/pull moment, Thomas goes over the cliff.  Brooke is mortified. And from the promo for next week’s B&B, Thomas is unconscious and might not make it, as Ridge sits by his bedside.

So, what is this twist all about? Either, Thomas choreographed the fall to gain sympathy and knew exactly what he was doing, or it was an accident, that might look like an attempted murder for now, and that will cause trouble between Brooke and Ridge, but also, and perhaps through testing in the hospital it might reveal, Thomas had a brain tumor causing him to act erratically?  Or, could it be that on Friday’s episode Thomas truly had a quick come-to-Jesus moment and had already realized the horrors of his way and was truly trying to set things right?  Or, could someone sneak into hospital room and snuff him out with a pillow? Many theories!

Now watch below the final moments when Thomas takes a major tumble and next week’s promo for B&B.  Then, weigh-in: What do you think the show will do with the character of Thomas now? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.
