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.

Brody confronts Todd about Bess’s claim that he knows where Marty is hiding. Todd hears out Brody and blows him off after gleaning that the information comes third hand by way of two alters. Brody nevertheless demands to search the house. Todd refuses but Téa grants permission. Brody finds no evidence of Marty but warns Todd to call him if Marty makes contact. Téa exits after Todd swears again that he knows nothing about Marty. Tess interrupts Ford’s date. Tess one-ups Ford with news that she is awaiting Cutter’s arrival, and when he does come, they’ll be rich. Meanwhile, Cutter puts the screws to Viki and Clint. He demands scads of cash – and Asa’s mansion – in exchange for committing Tess to St. Ann’s. Tess flips out when Cutter clues her into his doublecross. 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. Now that he’s out of jail and the charges are dropped, he’s wondering if they have any possibility at a future. The two clear the air, kiss and decide to take things to another level. Meanwhile, James prepares a romantic evening for Starr. They decide to move their relationship along, much like Tomas and Blair. James and Starr check into the Palace and are about to go up to their room when they run into Tomas and Blair.

Marty reveals she’s been hiding in the pool house behind Todd’s house, with the baby. Marty warns him he has to hide her, because she can expose his dealings with Tomas and bring to light a computer disc that could be damaging to him. Todd goes to look for the disk and it’s gone. John appears and Marty hides. Todd covers but John is still suspicious. Brody fills in John regarding Bess’s clue about Todd knowing where Marty is hiding. John acknowledges the twisted relationship between Marty and Todd, and that he’s hidden her before. Brody apologizes to John for blaming the baby’s disappearance on him. Roxy brings a psychic to Natalie to track down Liam. The psychic confirms that Liam is alive, and also that Brody and Natalie kissed to Roxy’s surprise. Brody asks the psychic if Marty is with Todd, but at that moment Marty isn’t with Todd and so the psychic doesn’t see it. Brody tells Natalie that Todd could be mixed up in this. Blair and Tomas, and James and Starr are all embarrassed to find each other at the Palace. Both couples pretend they’re just there for drinks. They intend to sneak upstairs but Blair ends up on the elevator with James and Starr ends up with Tomas. Both couples finally get to their rooms, and the two guys don’t reveal to their women that the other woman is there about to have sex. Blair and Tomas are about to make love when Blair steps into the bathroom. Tomas sees Todd is calling him.

Bo and Nora wait anxiously while Matthew is in surgery and wonder how he received the blow to his head. They contact Destiny, who knows nothing about the injury, but is distraught to hear about Matthew’s condition. Nate and Deanna discuss Dani’s acceptance of Clint’s confession to Eddie’s murder. Nate’s upset that Dani didn’t tell him she knew Matthew was the real killer and wonders what it says about their relationship. Nate privately worries to Deanna that he may have caused Matthew’s injury when he punched him. Todd leaves a desperate message for Tomas, warning him that Marty is on to their covert relationship. Tomas doesn’t initially get the message as he’s otherwise engaged, about to make love to Blair. Todd is persistent and before Blair and Tomas can consummate their relationship, Tomas is forced to return home to see Todd, who demands that Tomas get rid of the Marty problem. Tomas prepares to do just that, armed with a gun. Blair wonders if fate prevented her and Tomas from making love and looks forward to the timing to be right for them. Starr and James are again interrupted from lovemaking, but the night is a big one for them as they admit they love each other. Rama tells Vimal she was never pregnant.

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?
