Todd receives another visit from Irene.  Meanwhile, Téa presents a deal to Bo. Téa is given an opportunity to listen to Victor’s last words, captured on Shaun’s voicemail.  At EOD Téa seeks out Todd as Bo contemplates her offer.  Elsewhere, John gets a visit from Shaun, who relays his strange encounter with Vimal.  John remembers witnessing a run-in between Vimal and Brody and wonders if he might have had cause to kill Victor.  John confronts Brody and requests his weapon for testing.  Natalie is forced to run the test.  John wonders why Brody would threaten Victor.  Earlier, Natalie catches up with Rex.  Both are moving on with their lives.  Later, Roxy flips out when she learns from Rex that Natalie is engaged to Brody.  Roxy tells Rex that John is still in love with Natalie.  At the Spotted Pony, Rama and Cutter set up Kim to take the fall for Mr. Berger’s death years ago.  Kim beseeches Cutter to take care of her friend in her absence.  Meanwhile, Cutter shows up just as the doctor is asking the patient if she remembers her name.

Todd is grateful to Tea for representing him.  Tea informs him that Bo is considering dropping the charges against him – but he has to turn himself in.  Todd agrees to do so.  But when they arrive, Nora, not trusting him, demands he tell her the truth.  John doesn’t let go if his question to Brody: why did he threaten Victor?  Finally, Brody explodes at John, accusing him of hammering at him because Liam is Brody’s son, not John’s, and Natalie is going to be his wife and not John’s.  They leave but John isn’t about to let it go.  Jessica holds onto Liam’s paternity test but hides it from Tina.  She tells Jessica that the document, whatever it was, belonged to Victor. Ford is surprised when Jessica accepts his invitation to Capricorn.  Once they’re there, Jessica fills him in about the paternity test, surmising that Victor hated John McBain, maybe he was purposely keeping him from knowing the truth.  Rex runs into Aubrey at Capricorn.  She apologizes for telling Bo about Rex’s gun – and for trying to get closer to him right after his fiancée died.  Rex assures her he knows all about being a con, used to be one too. She offers to help him with the party for Natalie and Brody he wants to throw.  He accepts.  The doctor is forced to sedate the patient in the hospital bed.  Bo and Nora discuss dropping the charges against Todd.  Nora admits that she will never trust him.  She was fooled by him once when she defended him when he raped Marty, she will never be fooled by him again.  Bo assures her that the mayor would be happy if Nora went to trial anyway.  Nora teases Bo about the mayor’s romantic interest in him.  Cord and Tina babysit Ryder and they are reminded of parenting together.  They address the elephant in the room: their recent near-kiss. They look like they might kiss again.

Natalie interrupts Cord and Tina. Natalie finally has it out with Tina for her role in being held captive three years earlier. Tina offers to plan her wedding. After Natalie leaves, Tina and Cord agree to table the talk of their relationship for another day. Ford and Jessica’s night out at Capricorn is spoiled by Brody’s arrival. Privately, Ford wonders if Brody might already know that Liam is not his son. Brody warns gives Vimal a warning.  Danielle visits Starr at the jail cell. The two sisters offer each other advice. Meanwhile, Blair finds Jack working late at The Sun. She reminds her son that Shane’s testimony will prove that Jack lied to the police. At the LPD,  Nora makes a decision about the charges against Todd and Todd and Starr come face-to-face.

Starr and Todd have their day in court.  Meanwhile Tomas appears for his sentencing hearing. Tea tells him she can’t do anything for him since he pled guilty. Blair, kicked out of the arraignment, questions Tomas about his reasons for pleading guilty to a crime he didn’t commit. Anguished Blair asks if she means anything to him, and he makes a confession to her. Bo argues with Mayor Finn and she fires Bo, who tells her (essentially) to go to hell. She rehires him and he makes an excellent point that she cannot dispute. Roxy tells Rex about Echo’s forgery and the document that’s floating around that turns all of Rex’s money back over to Clint, and sends him a copy of the forged document.  Meanwhile Viki forces Clint to do his exercises when he gets a call from Cutter, telling him he can get all Clint’s money and property back for him, for a price. Clint calls Rex and demands he come over.   Cutter talks to the patient, who calls him Rex once by mistake. Cutter is not forthcoming when she asks him questions. Clint calls Cutter and tells him to take his document and shove it.  Cutter at first is foiled but quickly comes up with a plan.

Blair begs Todd to save Tomas from a prison sentence.  Inside the hearing room, Tomas faces sentencing.  But before hearing the judge’s decision, he directs a heartfelt speech to Téa and Blair in which he takes responsibility for his failures.  Meanwhile, Todd is confronted by another vision of Irene which prompts him to take drastic action.  Cutter comes up with a scheme to get the Buchanan money.  In Llanview, Aubrey tells Rex about her idea for Natalie and Brody’s engagement party.  Rex informs Aubrey about Cutter’s attempt to get his money. In Llanview, Cutter goes to Rex with an offer.  Starr gets physical with one of the pushy paparazzi, then is spirited inside by James.  Starr is glad to be home and can’t wait for life to get back to normal.  She goes upstairs to see Hope, leaving James to answer the door to Rick.  Rick congratulates Starr on her arrest; buzz is building, and her new bad girl image is just the thing they need to sell records.  Rick tells her that if she won’t play ball, he’ll seize control of her music.  At EOD Rick has something else up his sleeve to get what he wants.

GET BRODIE! Enough!

Thanks for the recap! I am glad to see some changes happen before the show gets stale. For instance i’m glad to see Rex at his office now, instead of just at the mansion or the graveyard or the restaurant. I know that soaps have to save money on sets but I wish they had the beautiful sets that all my children had.
But watching Friday’s episode last night I realized how bad people can look on there sometimes. Irene for instance, is that a wig she’s wearing? She does not look flattering at all. And Todd’s hair is a mess and so is Blair’s! Blair had some beautiful hairstyles over the years (especially seeing the flashbacks) but now it is just a mess and not attractive on her at all.
I’m hoping the show really is planning on bringing out all the stops the closer it gets towards the end on network tv. Not only with stories and bringing back old favorites but with sets, wardrobe and hair.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?

THIS IS US Fall Finale Delivers Shocking Twists

In the final moments of the season 3 fall finale of This Is Us, viewers were given several jaw-dropping moments befitting of this top-rated drama.  Along the Pearson family journey, back in time, present-day and flash-forward, fans of the series discovered: that Jack’s ‘believed to be dead’, brother, Nicky is actually very much alive.

In a key moment flashing back to the Vietnam war,  Jack finds his brother (who is stoned yet again) sitting on the pier and pretending to shoot Vietnamese villagers with his hand.  Nicky sadly informs Jack that he is not going to leave drugs behind again and clean up this act.  He announces, “I see it all when I’m clean,” and adds, “I’m not gonna complete the mission.”

At the end of that day, Jack can’t find Nicky.  Suddenly, there’s blast from the water, where it appears a boat has exploded, and one of the soldiers says there was a guy in it. Jack rushes into the river and swims toward the wreckage.  We don’t see what happens next, but the belief is that Nicky died in the explosion.

Kevin, who has been in Vietnam trying to learn what happened to Jack and Nicky in the war and about the mysterious woman in the photograph, feels he has zero answers to what happened during the war.   As he and Zoe prepare to leave, Kevin’s tour guide mentions that he’d searched an online database of the Vietnam War Memorial for Nicholas Pearson, but came up short.  The guide says Nicky didn’t die in the war.

Next, the show cuts to a bespectacled man (Griffin Dunne, who now takes over the role) living in an a trailer home. There is a piece of mail on his table addressed to Nicholas Pearson, 2125 Songbird Rd., Bradford, PA 16701.  This would mean that NIcky has lived there for a long time – and a three-hour drive from  Pittsburgh, where Jack and his family lived and were raised!

In other plot developments, the all-important  …Who is “Her?” flash-forward mystery was answered and we learn it is Rebecca.  She is still alive, and we see Beth in present day without her wedding ring to Randall, and seemingly running a ballet studio, getting set to meet up with Randall and adult Tess.  In a key moment Beth tells her employee: “We’re all going to see Randall’s mother .., oh, did you bring the Pin the Tail on the Donkey from the office? I promised I bring it.”  The Pearson Pin the Tail on the Donkey game has been a through-line for the years with the Big Three.

The fall finale gave a look into the future that Randall and Beth’s marriage may not have survived and it could have started with the fact that Randall would not drop out of the political race he was in, even after promising Beth he would, if things were not looking good for him as a candidate.  We also learn that Tess like girls and sorta came out to Randall and Beth, but did to her grandmother, Rebecca.

And, Toby and Kate learned that they are having a boy after cutting the cake to reveal its gender.

This Is Us EP, Dan Fogelman told EW.com about what to look for in the second half of the season when the show returns with all-new episodes starting on January 13th: “Now, it’s time — for a little while, and we will catch little glimpses — to focus on the present-day storylines that help you get there. There are many questions. Where are Kate and Toby in that period? Where is their relationship? Do they have children? Has Kevin figured out his love life? If so, with whom? Have Randall and Beth made it through as we hope Randall and Beth make it through? What has come of their respective careers? And what kind of shape or state is Rebecca in when we’re meeting her and they’re all going to visit her? In order to get to the future and to get more answers there, you need a little bit more present story in the back half of the season. So, I would say that should be the focus right now.”

Griffin (Matt Cohen) and Kiki (Hayley Erin) are late to Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan’s (Briana Nicole Henry) wedding, after they decide to undress (after they get dressed to the nines for the nuptials) and have sex.  After they make love, Griffin gets a call from Monica (Leslie Charleson) saying that the boards results are in as to if he has been reinstated at the hospital.

Curtis and Jordan are now getting ready to say their “I do’s” when the minister asks if there is anyone that has just cause that the duo should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Cue, Stella (Vernee Watson) who walks in looking very unhappy.  Will she unravel the wedding … or sit down and be a part of the celebration after getting some words of wisdom from Mike (Max Gail)?
