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: Nikolas & Spencer’s Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated reunion of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and his son, Spencer aired on Monday’s episode of General Hospital.  And it reminded us all how much we love Nicolas Bechtel as the young Cassadine.

While Ava (Maura West) first talks with Spencer in order to prepare him for his father’s appearance and that he is alive; when Nikolas shows up and receives a hug from Spencer, it appeared all might be OK between them, but how could it be? Nikolas let his son believe he was dead for over three years!

Next, Spencer lays into his father for choosing claiming the Cassadine fortune and keeping hidden over telling him that he was alive; leaving Spencer alone with two broken legs, in a boarding school in Europe, and grief-stricken.

The best scenes were actually shared by Maura West and Bechtel, when Ava tries to reason with the disappointed and disillusioned young man over his father’s return, which has a double meaning for her.  She says, “The person you love most in the world just came back to you. That makes you the luckiest boy on the planet. Can’t you see that?”  For Ava, she is obviously drawing a parallel to her losing her daughter, Kiki and wishing she was alive.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.

GH’s Genie Francis Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This past Monday’s episode of General Hospital was one of the series best installmnets in recent months filled with long awaited confrontations and reveals.

The cast at the epicenter of it which included the talents of: James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Cynthia Watros (Nina), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava) all had stellar moments.

However, there is nothing like getting to see the icon herself, Genie Francis (Laura), do what she does best; the momma bear who is at once shocked and overjoyed that the son she grieved for over three years was very much alive, and the flip side of the anger over the fact that he let her, his sister, and most importantly his son, Spencer, continue to believe that he was dead, all for his vendetta and quest for revenge against Valentin Cassadine.

For it was Valentin who was the man who shot him and now is no longer the heir apparent to the Cassadine throne, now that the codicil said that it all belongs to Nikolas and Valentin was Helena’s son, not Mikkos’.

The thing of it is, everyone is great when Francis does her performances, and you could see that in the work of soap newcomer, Coloma, who you could just see through his eyes the disappointment and despair he caused his mother all these years, by Francis’ mesmerizing delivery.

Beat after beat in that episode, Genie brought the fire, the sorrow, and the wisdom, as Laura to every moment.  It was also well-written that Laura did not just have a happy reunion with her son, but a complex one fraught with issues to be ironed out.

Then, in the punctuation of that episode, was there anything better than watching Laura’s jaw-drop when Ava struts in telling Nikolas it’s time to tie-the-knot?

That is why Michael Fairman TV names Genie Francis “The Power Performance of the Week”.

Let us know in the comment section below, if you enjoyed Genie’s performances as much as we did.
