Tea visits Todd and finally believes he’s innocent, after he swears on the lives of his children. He tells her about Irene offering him a deal. Tea agrees she’ll represent him. At EOD Todd receives a threat from Irene. Irene visits Viki, ostensibly to apologize. Viki calls Bo and gets confirmation that Irene was released from jail.  Viki berates Irene for her treatment of her sons and of her daughter Tina.  At EOD Irene says she has one more thing to share with Viki: a gun that she points at her. Blair tries to get Jack to admit he’s lying about Todd’s involvement in Victor’s death.  She tells him Todd might get the death sentence. However Dani and Tomas interrupt just when Jack might confess to the lie. At EOD Tea returns home and Blair is about to take off with Jack to keep working on him, when someone enters. He is there about Victor Lord Jr’s last will and testament. Tina travels to Llanview with a mysterious man traveling next to her. Tomas takes responsibility for the fact that Todd had to spend all those years behind bars. John is about to admit to Natalie that he still loves her, when he sees her engagement ring. He learns she’s going to marry Brody.  Bo sees Natalie is upset.

Tina Lord and her dog, David Vickers, return to Llanview and make a beeline to see her family. At Todd’s house, the lawyer is about to read the will when Tina arrives to the surprise of all.  By EOD the reading is back on track and the lawyer announces to whom Victor left the entirety of his estate. Todd freaks when he receives Irene’s note, in which she threatens the lives of all he holds dead.  Todd shows Starr the note, which suddenly is unreadable.  Starr wants to take the note to John and Bo, but Todd thinks it’s too risky to involve the police.  At EOD Todd tells Starr there’s only one thing to do: They must break him out of jail.  Natalie tells Rex that she accepted Brody’s marriage proposal.  Rex learns that an encounter with John precipitated Natalie’s decision.  Rex questions Natalie’s motives.  Later, Rex has another vision of Gigi. Jessica confides in Ford that Natalie accepted Brody’s marriage proposal.  Ford helps Jessica exorcise her anger.  But at EOD she may have some left over when she runs into Natalie.

Tina is crushed that there’s no money for her.  At EOD, we see that Irene has a plan for Victor’s family: a bomb is planted outside of the house where the family is still gathered. Todd convinces Starr to bust him out of prison.  Natalie and Jessica have it out about Natalie’s engagement to Brody and they come to blows.  Brody breaks them up and takes Natalie off, leaving a seething Jessica. Brody again asks Clint for his blessing in his marriage to Natalie. Clint argues against the wedding, but Brody is resolute.  He suggests that Clint’s approval would go a long way toward healing the enmity between Natalie and Jessica.  Clint very much wants to do that, so he gives the marriage his blessing.  When Brody goes, Clint gets a visit from someone he’s happy to see.

Blair, Tea, Viki and Jack react to Todd’s escape and the fact that he was abetted by Starr. Todd explains about Irene’s threat. Blair is mad at him for involving Starr. Meanwhile we see the bomb ticking away.  Jack is furious about Todd’s escape and surreptitiously calls the cops.    Tina reacts to seeing Todd, then tries to enlist him to fight Victor’s will.  She reveals Victor Lord Sr’s ring and Todd recognizes it. Todd fights over the ring with Tina. Tea tries to get Todd to turn himself in but he runs off to give the ring to Irene, at the docks. Bo arrives with cops, but Todd is already gone.  Meanwhile, the dog sniffs out the bomb. Cord has surprised Clint, and their talk turns to Rex. Cord is upset that Rex is running BE in name only and causing problems. Bo, after discovering the Todd escape and Starr’s involvement, interrupts a heated moment, looking for Todd, and then gets called away. Enter Tina, with Viki. Shane recalls the night of the murder.  Rex finds him in Angel Square and Rex admits to Shane that he’s been seeing Gigi. And in fact, this time she left him a note.

Todd and Irene face off.  They hear an explosion in the distance.  She informs him that was the sound of his family dying. Meanwhile, Tina’s dog, DV, has located the bomb outside Todd’s house.  Inside, it’s intense as Bo demands to know where Todd is.  Blair, Tea and Starr honestly don’t know where Todd is, only that he went to confront Irene.  Bo puts out word to search for them, then turns his attention to Starr.  Bo discovers the bomb.  Jessica tends to her wounds from her fight with Natalie, and is forced to tell her parents what happened. Viki is upset and goes to talk to Natalie.  Clint tells Jessica that he gave Brody his blessing to marry Natalie in the hope that it would bring peace to the family.  Tina, after arguing with Cord about her past misdeeds, discovers that her dog is missing.  Tina rushes to Jess with the empty carrier, asking if she’s seen the dog.  Jessica notices a piece of paper in the carrier.  Brody comforts Natalie after the fight.  She insists she tried to be nice, but Jessica kept at her.  Viki arrives.  Brody leaves to join the search for Todd.  Natalie is worried that she’s going to lose her mother.  Viki questions her about her feelings for John. After a bitter argument, Cord comforts Tina about her dog.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

‘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

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.
