Bo and Nora are thrilled when Matthew survives surgery, as are Destiny and Dani.  But their joy is short-lived when he suffers a life-altering complication. Nate suffers the torture of thinking he might have caused Matthew’s brain injury. Nate, unable to wait for news, goes to the hospital to find out if Matthew’s okay. Viki tries to reason with Tess who spits nails at her. After Viki leaves, the door to Tess’s padded cell opens and it’s Ford who’s arrived to spring Tess. Rex confronts Clint about his public confession and Clint flat lines. Joey’s shocked to learn all that Clint gave up to ensure Cutter committed Tess. When Joey finds Cutter at the mansion, he lets him have it. Cutter, after asking for Aubrey to come back to him, evicts her, Joey and Rama from what is now his new home. To Gigi’s surprise, Ford reaches out to Shane who responds positively to Ford’s advice.

Bo and Nora spiral into shock and denial after receiving the devastating news about Matthew. Nora in particular refuses to believe that her son is beyond hope and demands every measure be taken to save him. Matthew is taken for a nuclear profusion scan, a test that will prove his prognosis conclusively. Meanwhile, Nate is stunned to find out the extent of Matthew’s injuries. Nate can’t take the heat and excuses himself. Destiny falls apart after overhearing Matthew’s doctor writing off his patient. Bo and Nora are comforted by Rex and Viki.  Nora hangs onto her optimism until the doctor returns with more devastating news. Rick overhears Nate telling Deanna he’s sure he caused Matthew’s injuries. Viki and Rex bear witness as Clint’s heart gives out again. Viki is forced to tell Rex the truth that Clint is dying. Clint’s doctor takes drastic measures to save Clint’s life, installing a ventricular assist device. The silver lining is that Clint has shot to the top of the transplant list. Tess believes she is saved when Ford, dressed as an orderly, appears in her room at St. Ann’s. Ford first demands the information about Aubrey and Joey that may aid his pursuit of Ryder. Tess promises to tell Ford what he wants to know after he breaks her out. The two argue, neither trusting the other to follow through on their promise. Ford ultimately moves to walk out, prompting Tess to blurt out everything about Aubrey and Joey’s sham marriage. Ford attempts to make good on his promise but isn’t quick enough and the pair are discovered and Ford is thrown out. Cutter surprises Aubrey and Rama with the news that Clint signed over the house to him and now he wants them all out. Rama tries to improve her position with Cutter by claiming she advocated for him to Aubrey. Her case gets better when she and Aubrey trade punches. Cutter lets Rama stay, but Aubrey, Joey and Ryder must all go. Deanna encounters down-on-his-luck Rick at the Buenos Dias Café. Deanna isn’t much better off since last they met. Rick says there’s always a role for her at Treasure Island. Deanna declines his offer.

Tomas has spent the night watching Marty and passes the torch to Todd. Marty’s shocked to learn that Natalie’s still alive and refuses to believe it. When Todd leaves to get a newspaper to prove it, Marty vows to Liam that if Natalie isn’t dead, she will be soon. Unbeknownst to Marty, Natalie is at that very minute outside the pool house door. Tomas must cover with Blair. Natalie tells Brody she had a nightmare about her rooftop experience with Marty that makes her suspect the tape she had of Marty’s psychiatric session contains critical information. Meanwhile, Roxy finds the tape. John is affected when Roxy lets slip that Brody and Natalie shared a recent kiss. Joey tells Kelly he wants to be with her, but Kelly has no wish to be an afterthought. Ford finds Aubrey with his son and tells her he’s going to the judge with information about her relationship with Cutter and her fraudulent marriage to Joey. Aubrey warns that the judge still might not award custody to Ford. Ford is willing to take his chances, but knowing Ryder is what’s keeping her and Joey together, Aubrey offers another solution, allowing Ford generous visitation with his son. Ford takes Ryder off for the day, leaving Aubrey to explain to Joey. The man being held captive with Todd’s old face escapes. After vowing to kill Natalie, Marty discovers her right outside the door. She’s about to get rid of her once and for all when she hears Brody calling for her. She hides, and Brody swoops in to rescue Natalie. Marty goes with Todd, asking him to tell John that Liam isn’t Brody’s son, but is John’s. John gets a warrant to search Todd’s house. He and Brody arrive there and discover the house is empty. But John goes to the pool house where he finds Tomas holding Liam. Blair and Starr reveal to one another that neither had the night they thought they’d have last night. Blair’s relieved because she wants to get to know Tomas better. Starr realizes that with Marty’s psychotic break, Cole has no one and she feels guilty. Blair and Starr leave to visit him. Ford takes Ryder home. James is delighted to see his nephew again. He questions his brother and forces him to admit he’s falling for Tess. Bess points out to Tess her lack of options now that she’s in St. Ann’s. She forces Tess to admit she’s falling for Ford. Joey’s upset with Aubrey because she let Ford have the baby. Aubrey claims she did it out of compassion for Ford, but Joey calls her on it. He vows that as soon as Jessica is able to take care of her child, he’ll divorce Aubrey so he can be with Kelly.

‘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.
