Tea enters on Blair and Todd about to kiss. Tea tells Blair that Tomas pled guilty and that Starr didn’t get bailed out. Todd wonders if he should turn himself in. Tea gets emotional, remembers being with Victor last time she was at the cabin.  Her telling Todd about how possessive Victor was with his kids brings up the Jack/Gigi situation. Suddenly realizes there was someone else who wanted to kill Victor as much as Todd did. Starr presses Jack to admit he was lying about Todd’s guilt.  Blair comes in and apologizes to Tomas for sending him after Todd. Tomas evades, tells Blair to concentrate on helping Starr.   Blair urges Tomas to change his guilty plea and leaves. Jack goes to Victor’s grave and Delphina sees him, noting that he’s got a guilty conscience about something. Blair arrives. Kim tells her friend that she has to shake down Roxy and Echo to get Clint’s money back. Echo tells Roxy not to worry because the police think Todd murdered Victor.  Kim walks in on them. She tells them she’s turning in the gun, they’re out of time. Rex goes to the cemetery to talk to Gigi about what the “Don’t give up” note means.  Delphina shows up and Rex asks her to talk to Gigi to explain the note.  Rex pleads with Delphina to send him back in time to before Gigi died so he can keep her from dying. In Kentucky, Kim talks to her friend in the hospital and there is a shocking revelation.

Rex catches Echo and Roxy scheming together. Echo hides the gun in the foyer before retreating to the living room. Unnoticed, Shane finds the gun and flashes back to the night of the murder. In the living room, Rex gets Echo and Roxy to admit that they think he killed Victor. At the cemetery, Blair admits to Jack that she doesn’t believe the story he told the police. Blair pleads with Jack to consider that his false testimony will deny Victor justice and haunt Jack for the rest of his life. After she leaves, Shane approaches Jack with the gun in hand.  Tea and Todd, holed up in Viki’s cabin, begin to toss around the idea that Rex could be the person who killed Victor. Todd worries that if revenge is what motivated Rex, then Jack is still in danger. Tea calls Bo and strong-arms him into questioning Rex. Meanwhile, at Capricorn, Aubrey discovers that Rex’s gun was never dropped off to the police. Aubrey chastises Cutter and vows that they are done for good. Cutter storms out. At EOD, Aubrey finds Bo and tells him she has information about Victor’s murder…Kim assures her friend that everything will be fine now that Rex has signed over his company. At EOD, Cutter arrives with a plan of his own.

Shane confronts Jack in the cemetery, accusing Jack of lying about having seen Todd Manning knock him out at the scene of the murder.  Shane demands that Jack admit what he did to Gigi.  He threatens to shoot him dead if he doesn’t. Rex is still insisting that he didn’t kill Victor, even as Echo finds out the gun is missing.  They panic, fearing that Shane was the one who killed Victor.  When Bo arrives, Rex’s instinct is to protect his son.  Cutter has a plan to get Clint’s money back for himself.  When Kim refuses, he threatens to reveal her secret. Bo gets an earful from Aubrey about Cutter’s failure to turn in the gun.  She reveals that it belonged to Rex.  Bo tries to keep his emotions in check when he goes to talk to Rex.  Viki arrives home to Clint who reveals that he and Cord had a little tiff about Tina.  He mentions that Cord threw Clint’s relationship with Viki in his face.  Viki asks him about Kim.  Clint tells her that he hasn’t seen her since she asked for his help with her sick friend.  He sent Rex to investigate, but it was a dead end.  Viki wonders if he’s disappointed that Kim seems to have vanished again.  He prods Viki about whether she’s ready to date again. 

Shane has Jack at gunpoint.  Shane tells Bo and Rex his story. Meanwhile, Vimal suggests to Shaun that the police have a suspect in their midst.  Elsewhere, Blair visits Téa at the cabin and learns that Todd is on the mend.  Blair tells Téa that Jack as much as admitted his story that Todd killed Victor is false, but he refuses to say so to the police.  Kim confesses everything to Cutter.  By EOD Kim hands over the document that controls Clint’s fortune.  Cutter hopes to use it to wrangle control of the Buchanan riches.  Elsewhere, Aubrey tells Rama and that she and Cutter broke up.  In the process, Rama learns that Kim has surfaced.  Rama intends to get back the money Kim stole from her.  Jessica encounters John, but will she tell him the truth that Liam may be his son.

Tea lies to Dani about her whereabouts. He wonders if the cops are investigating Rex as Victor’s murderer but Tea doesn’t know; only that Starr caught Jack in a lie.  Meanwhile Blair is with Bo, having heard from Jack that Shane pulled a gun on him. Todd decides it’s time to turn himself in, and Tea agrees.  They have emotional scenes about her need for justice for Victor.  Meanwhile Blair wants Bo to press charges on Shane.  Tea comes to Bo and says Todd will turn himself in. But they’re going to need something in return. Dani is skipping school and lies to her mother.  She’s leaving then house when she runs into Nate and shares with him how worried she is re Starr.  Nate again apologizes to Dani for his porn endeavor. Rama has arranged to meet Cutter at the Spotted Pony and threatens to have him arrested. Kim goes to work and finds Rama waiting for her. Echo is about to tell Rex she forged his signature but Shane interrupts.  Rex and Shane have emotional scenes in which Rex questions why Shane never told Rex what he did to Jack, and that he thought Rex had killed Victor. They resolve not to keep things from each other, and to stop chasing a ghost. And the person in the hospital bed wakes up.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Family Says Their Goodbyes in Emotional Episode Filled With Touching Performances

For anyone who has been watching the emotional Alzheimer’s storyline play out on General Hospital, Wednesday’s episode was a key moment in the storytelling and for the Corinthos family.  To say that the cast delivered in this episode is an understatement; everyone had their moments, and of course, chief among them, Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Mike’s (Max Gail) life is coming to an end as his body is shutting down from the disease.  Stella (Vernee Watson) comes to Mike’s room at Turning Woods and tells Sonny that Mike is waiting for permission to let go.  She explains to Sonny that Mike is torn between this world and the afterlife.   Stella helps Sonny prepare for the final moments of Mike’s life, dimming the lights, giving Sonny ice chips to put on his father’s lips, and for Sonny to put on some of Mike’s favorite music – jazz.   She also gets Mike a blanket because he is getting cold.  Then in a touching moment played to perfection by Vernee Watson, Stella says her own goodbye to Mike and hugs Sonny and tells him how grateful she was to know Mike.

Carly (Laura Wright) had been by Sonny’s side every step of the way in the final days of Mike’s life.  At one point in Mike’s room with Sonny, she has a dream where Mike tells her she is his daughter.  It was another heartbreaking moment – this time played beautifully by Laura Wright.  Earlier, Michael (Chad Duell) said goodbye to his grandfather and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) had also come to Turning Woods, as has Brando (Johnny Wactor) to be there for the end of Mike’s life and to support Sonny

Sonny tells Mike, (who can hear, but cannot truly respond as the disease continues to shut down his body), that he has made peace with what went down between them when he was a child.  He tells Mike, “I just want you to go in peace and go with love.”  Later, Sonny had a recollection seeing his father pray in the back of the church when he was a child, which sparked an idea for him.   Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny know that Mike wants to be forgiven for his sins.

Then in the tearjerker, Father Ramos arrives to bless Mike and cleanse him from all of his sins, as Sonny, Carly, Michael and Josslyn witness it.

Afterwards, Jason realizes that Mike probably does not want to die in front of Sonny and tells Sonny to take a break, but Sonny does not want to – so Jason whispers to Mike that he should not worry that he will take care of Sonny. The two hope Mike will meet up with Morgan in heaven.

At the end of the episode, alone with his father, Sonny tells Mike not to be afraid, or to worry about him, and then remembers the night Mike walked out on him and his mother when he was a kid.  He says he knows his father always loved him … maybe too much.  We fade to black.  Maurice Benard’s work was again outstanding throughout these moments, making Sonny’s life-long pain, and love for this father, palpable.

As someone who went through this horrible disease with his mother, I can say, that GH played the beats of the story to perfection, honoring those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and the family members they leave behind.

So, what did you think of this emotional episode of GH and the performances by the cast? Comment below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Anne Heche. Jesse Metcalfe & Chrishell Stause Make Their Ballroom Debuts; While Tyra Banks Bows As New Host

Season 29 of Dancing with the Stars got underway last night, and with the pandemic the changes were noticeable.

Judges seemed more than six feet apart at the table, gone was the Sky Box interviews, gone was the live band,  but we did get canned crowd applause and noise which was too over the top without any audience members truly in the ballroom.

Tyra Banks made her debut as the new host replacing Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, while Derek Hough took over Len Goodman’s spot at the judges table. With all of that; soap fans were intrigued to see how three of the contestants would do in the scoring with their first dance of the competition.

Anne Heche and dance partner Keo Motsepe (Cha-Cha):  Here we go – for pizazz and going for it … and doing well, we got to give it to Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marly Another World) although at times her foot work was off, she really sold this dance with her enthusiasm and spunk.  Judge Carrie Ann had high praise for Anne as a potential star on the dance floor, and the duo danced to Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start  Now, which we love. Judges’ Score: 18 out of 30

Jesse Metcalfe and dance partner Sharna Burgess (Quickstep):  Metcalfe (Ex-Dallas, Passions, and Desperate Housewives) looked intense on the dance floor and got some critique for his posture and foot work, but the quickstep is such a hard dance to pull off in the first place.  The duo danced to Stevie Wonder’s Part Time Lover.  And of note: Sharna fangirled out meting Metcalfe whom she loved as Miquel on Passions! Judges’ Score: 18 out of 30

Chrishell Stause and dance partner Gleb Savchenko (Tango): With mistakes that were noticeably caught by the judges, which they shared were about timing, footwork, and frame work, Chrishell (Ex-AMC, DAYS and Y&R) held it together and got through the dance in spite of it all.  She danced to Pink’s Raise Your Glass.  In a play on Stause’s Selling Sunset real estate gig and reality series, judge Bruno said Stause was “far from closing the deal” with that dance.  Judges’ Score: 13 out of 30.

At the top of the leaderboard after night one of the competition were: 18-year-old Skai Jackson with 21 points, as well as Justina Machado, then former ‘Bachlorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe with 20, along with Catfish creator and host Nev Shulman.  At the bottom of the score board was Tiger King’s Carole Baskin with 11 points.

Watch Anne, Jesse and Chrishell’s performances below.  Then let us know, what did you think of their first dance?  Who impressed you from the entire cast? What did you think of Tyra as Dancing with the Stars new host? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Let’s just make this official as we tweeted about it last week when these scenes aired on Tuesday.  And let’s just say, that Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) could very well receive another Daytime Emmy nomination next year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, if these moments are part of her reel.  LoCicero was previously nominated in 2015 in this category.

Now on to that performance that had everyone a-buzz on social media after it aired.  In the scenes, Robert (Tristan Rogers) has worked his WSB contacts to get Olivia to Geneva to secretly see her son, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), who is suffering from severe trauma and PTSD and is at this facility for treatment.  After traveling half way around the world to get there, with anticipation and wanting to hold her son and be there for him – when she arrives the doctor (Christopher Cousins) tells Dante his mother is here to see him, but Dante refuses to let that happen.

When the doctor tells Olivia that Dante will not open the door to his room to talk to his mom and come face-to-face with her, she goes into momma bear mode, releasing such heartache and anguish, just wanting to see Dante, but she is met with a steely shut door instead.  But as viewers saw, the scenes were made all the more poignant by the split screen; where Dante is on the other side of the door – heartbroken hearing his mother’s cries.  Dominic Zamprogna, who is always stellar, was also moving in these moments.

However, it was LoCicero’s ability to call up such deep rooted love and pain for her child, that any parent could relate to, which broke our hearts, rang so true, and showcased Lisa.

Later in the week, we also see how Liv was there for Robert in return  – and the two are now off on a mission of their own to find Holly (if she is indeed very much alive) which is sure to put a further wedge in her marriage to Ned (Wally Kurth).  That begs the questions, too.  How would you feel about a Robert and Olivia pairing…or would you be rooting for Olivia and Ned to work through their issues?

Through it all, it was Lisa LoCicero who grabbed our attention, brought out the hankies for all of us, and truly compelled the audience.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Lisa’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Lisa in these scenes with Dominic? In case you missed them, you can check them out below, then share your thoughts in the comment section.
