THE BACHELORETTE: And Then There Were Two As Becca Blindsides Jason

Courtesy/ABC

Last night on The Bachelorette, the backdrop was Thailand, and three men were left vying for Becca Kufrin’s heart. All with the intention of getting that key to the fantasy suite, and some alone time away from the cameras with her.  Two guys that worked for, and for one it did not.

“Bachelor Nation” is already screaming that Jason Tartick, who was eliminated, should be the next “Bachelor”.   Right now, all signs are pointing towards that, especially in an interview with ET posted today, where he said he would be interested,  and that, coupled with the fact of how he left the series makes him the instant favorite to be picked.  Jason and the other contestants who were shown the front door, appear next week in the season’s annual, Men Tell All episode.

As for Monday night’s installment, things quickly fell apart in Thailand for Jason, following Blake’s one-on-one date with Becca and night in the fantasy suite.  As Becca was speaking to Jason on their date, as they were beginning to walk around together, Becca freaked out, and asked for a moment, while Jason just sat their  endlessly, while she tried to pull herself together.  Becca admitted to a producer that she could not see a life with Jason, once she spit out words when describing the house they could live in.

Later at the the dinner date, she admits to Jason she has stronger feelings for the other two guys.  He kept pushing back that she should explore this more with him, but Becca shut him down.  Once she escorted Jason to his limo and off the show, we cut to Becca comparing blindsiding Jason to what Arie did to her – which in no way was close.  She breaks down in tears, yet again, because she sent such a good man home as she questions … what is wrong with her? But, Jason has one last card to play after getting the boot. He shows up in her hotel room complete with a scrapbook of their relationship.  This is when he became a “nudge”.  Becca clearly isn’t into him like she is with Garrett and Blake, dude!  Have some respect and walk away.  Jason finally did.  Finally alone, Becca says that whatever woman gets Jason’s heart, “better treat him like a king!”

As for Becca’s date with Blake, it’s his obvious doubt about her feelings for the other guys left that has him perpetually troubled.  We think he may be one step away from being dumped, if he continues his insecurities and shows them all of over his face and with is body language.  When at their dinner date, the two talk about how smooth their relationship has been and “knock on wood” that won’t change.  Becca gives Blake the fantasy suite invitation, and we are left with him closing the door so they have privacy, and then the twosome having to say goodbye to each other the next morning, while she goes off and potentially has sex with another guy! Awkward.

On her date with Garrett, the two end up bamboo rafting, but smack dab in the middle of a national holiday with a ton of families from Thailand!  Apparently, they didn’t get the memo!  This was to show that these two can work through obstacles together.  On the dinner date, Garrett fumbles and sidesteps around saying he is in love with Becca.  When he tries to get the words out, he gets jittery, puts his hand to wipe off the sweat on his forehead, before making his declaration, which he eventually dos.  Becca gives Garrett the Fantasy Suite invitation which is to a romantic tree house.  Of course, he says “yes” and they get some private time.    We are more intrigued by his long-awaited emotional meltdown from the promo for the last episode.

When it comes time for the rose ceremony, Becca explains to Garrett and Blake that she sent Jason home.  The two guys want to give stink-eye to each other, but try to hold it together in front of Becca, where Blake looks a bit more unnerved by Garrett, then vice-versa.  Now, we have to wait two weeks for the season finale.

So, were you upset to see Jason go home? Who do you think will win Becca’s heart now … Blake or Garrett? Comment below.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

General Hospital

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
