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.

THE BACHELORETTE: Hannah Finally Sends Luke P. Packing!

On last night’s pivotal episode of The Bachelorette, it was the Fantasy Suites that were the major theme and next level for Hannah and the four gents still left in the running for the final rose to navigate.  But let’s start with the moment that all of ‘Bachelor Nation’ has been been buzzing about, the long-awaited showdown (thanks to that promo!) between Hannah and Luke P.

After what seemed to be lovely date taking a helicopter ride together, tension mounted when they sat down for dinner afterwards when the conversation turned to sex.  And as viewers know, Luke P. is deeply religious.  In the conversation, Luke revealed that although he’s not a virgin (which he has talked about his life of “sin” in his younger days) he’s been abstinent for four years and has plans to wait until marriage to have sex again … and he expects the same would hold true for Hannah.

He goes on to further stick his foot in his mouth by expressing to the Alabama beauty queen: “I am very confident that were on the same page with our morals and I just want to hear it from your mouth.  I’ve heard people proclaim their faith, but yet they’ve said things like, ‘I’m excited for Fantasy Suites, I want to explore this relationship on a sexually intimate level and that’s what I’m looking forward to.’  And to me, that’s like, ‘Whoa (and the ‘whoa’ he said multiple times) excuse me?’  I don’t believe that’s something you should be doing … and I just want to make sure that you’re not going to be sexually intimate with the other relationships here.”  Luke continues on to Hannah, “I totally have all the trust in the world for you … but at the same time I just want to make sure we’re on the same page.  If you told me you’re going to have sex … or you had sex with one or multiple of these guys I would be wanting to go home 100 percent.”

Finally, Hannah pushes back with: “Some of the things you said, I don’t agree with at all.  And honestly, I’m  mad because the way that you just said that is like, why do you have the right to do that because you’re not my husband and you’re not … ”

At a loss for words, she then adds: “I get when you care for somebody that you don’t want to think about somebody being intimate with another person. But guess what?  Sex might be a sin out of marriage, pride is a sin, too, and I feel like this is a pride thing. I’m a grown woman, and I can make my own decisions, and I’m not strapped to a man right now.”

But then, Luke makes a major “slip-up” when Luke referred to Hannah having sex as a “slip-up” that he could forgive!  Hannah fired back, “I don’t slip up.”  Hannah finally looks like she has had her epiphany, which was helped along by Jed standing his ground with her on the previous date, telling her he does not want to see her wind up with a man like Luke.  ‘The Bachelorette’ then leaves Luke devastated: “I have cried,  I have struggled, I have screamed, I have made decisions that have kept me up at night,”

She says all of that revolving Luke staying in the competition against all the warning of the other guys: “There have been so many times that I have wanted to say I am done with you, but my heart has just not allowed me to let you go.  I prayed so much for clarity and I feel like I have finally gotten clarity on you. I do not want you to be my husband.”   She wants Luke up and Adam and into the car to get him away from her as fast as possible.  In true Luke fashion, he stalls, saying Hannah owes him a minute to share his heart.  That ticks Hannah off even more.  She tells him she does not owe him anything at this point.  When he still will not get into the car; Hannah pulled out her final ammo: “I have had sex, and guess what? Jesus still love me.  From obviously how you feel, me f**ing in a windmill, you probably want to leave. And my husband would never say what you said to me.”

After a weird reaction of “What?” Luke then awkwardly asks Hannah to pray with him before getting in the car.  Hannah refuses, flips him the bird and he is a-goner.  Problem is: it looks like Luke P returns before the final rose is handed out to try to win Hannah back one last time in the preview of what’s coming up o the series at the end of Monday’s episode.

However, a Twitter war erupted between the two during the airing of the episode last night, which included this:

As for the rest of the Fantasy Suite dates.  Pilot Peter finally uttered the words “I love you” to Hannah, but barely could get it out.  Tyler is told by Hannah that when they go to the Fantasy Suite she does not want to have sex with him, because they need to bond more than just the physical, so apparently they had a lovely night of cuddling.  And as for Jed, his relationship with Hannah looked to implode over Luke, but Hannah came around and it looks like these two wound up with a great night in the Fantasy Suite, but who knows how Hannah will play the remainder of this out!

So, what did you think of the sex and religion talk between Luke P. and Hannah that sent him home? Who do you think is the front-runner for Hannah’s heart now? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: During ‘Hometowns’ Jed’s Family Takes A Wrecking Ball To His Relationship With Hannah

Maybe everyone should think twice about bringing a potential suitor home to meet the folks and the siblings?  That’s what Jed and Hannah were probably feeling after that debacle of a hometown on Monday night’s pivotal episode of The Bachelorette.

After having great meet the family moments with Peter and Tyler, and even with Luke (will get back to that in a moment). Hannah probably would never expect to have a family of naysayers thrown at her when she comes to Knoxville with Jed, who at that point had been considered one of the front-runners to win the final rose.  Before they meet Jed’s family, they go record a song together that they co-write on the spot ! The song is supposed to represent their relationship and talks about cobblestone streets within the lyrics  Is this song going to come out on Spotify before we know it?  To add more drama to the moment, Jed says he cannot contain it any longer and confesses that he loves her.  Hannah seems moved.

Now when we get to the family hometown – Jed’s mother makes an odd toast about “sticking to your truth.”  Later, things get very tense and awkward when Hannah speaks with Jed’s mom alone, and tells her that she told Jed that she is falling in love with him  “Do you say that to all of them?” Jed’s mom quipped.

When talk turns to his music career both Jed’s sister, and mother told Hannah that Jed is really only about his music carer, and she might want to run the other way.  There may not be room in his life for her and his music.   Then, there is this whole other side story of Jed’s other girlfriend (Haley Stevens) no one is mentioning.  Following the evening with Jed’s family, Hannah is confused, not knowing what to do, but clearly has opened her eyes that she might be second fiddle in Jed’s life.

Previously, when Hannah met Luke’s family and friends, she saw how religious and how important, really important, his faith was to him, and how everyone loved him.  But, Hannah expressed what happened to Luke’s family with the other guys in the house. and how they hated on Luke throughout the entire competition.  She didn’t quite get the answers she was hoping for, except, that when Luke knows he is wrong about something he quickly fixes it.

When it is time for the rose ceremony, Hannah is supposed to kick one guy to the curb. She gives roses to Peter and Tyler.  Then has a mini-meltdown.  Then goes back in and can’t give a rose to either Jed or Luke,   She says she needs more time with everyone so everyone is staying and getting a rose.  Jed is pissed that he was almost tossed out when it was between him and Luke … and is very concerned what this means for his relationship with Hannah.  Will he stay or quit the show next week?

In an Instagram post telling viewers to back-off his family and more following the airing of last night’s episode, Jed related:  “Hi y’all. Several of you have reached out with messages and questions.  Please know I’m not able to answer right now, but as soon as I’m able to, I will. Until then, I ask that you please understand how much the actions being taken towards myself, my family, the men on the show, and above all, Hannah, are affecting all of our mental and physical health. It goes beyond what is said online. Threatening letters and phone calls have been sent to our homes. My parents and sister are being verbally attacked in public. I beg you to remember what seems like a harmless action is damaging to real people. I want to thank all of you who have reached out or reserved judgement until I am able to speak openly and I can only ask for your patience and kindness until then.”

So, will it be Peter vs. Tyler for the final rose, or are Jed and Luke (who looks like he gets kicked to the curb in next week’s promo) going to be there in the end for the heart of Hannah? Comment below on all The Bachelorette drama.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Drugs Drew, Hayden Returns, Liesl Overboard As Secrets Mount

In a Monday’s installment of ABC’s General Hospital, the series left viewers with three major cliffhangers and the week has just started.  All of the action and the drama centered around the long-awaited wedding reception of Franco (Roger Howarth) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).

As everyone gathered at the ‘Haunted Star’ for the celebration, many of the guests are on edge, and one is schnockered.  When Kim (Tamara Braun) arrives with Julian (William deVry), Drew is speaking to Terry (Cassandra James).  With a moment alone, Drew asks Julian how Kim is doing.  He tells Drew to take a closer look, meaning she is not doing well at all since Oscar’s death.  Later, when a conversation ensues between Kim and Drew, he reassures her that even though Oscar is gone, they will always be family. Kim wonders if that means it’s still possible for them to have another child together.  Drew tells her he cannot do that right now.  That sets the stage for the shocker of the episode that has had fans tweeting since it aired.

When the fuses apparently blow and the lights go out on the ‘Haunted Star”, Kim and Drew go to locate it, and once at the fuse box, Kim stabs Drew with a syringe.  Then, Kim knows exactly how to turn the fuse box back on, and we see Drew blindsided by Kim’s action.  Has GH made Kim unhinged?  Does this mean that she is going to rape Drew?

Elsewhere, Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) is drunk.  She has many secrets that could ruin several lives of the citizens of Port Charles at the reception. She tells Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) that Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) relationship is going to hit the skids.  Brad overhears this!  Add to that, Liesl gets Nina (Cynthia Watros) to introduce her to Jax  (Ingo Rademacher) and starts asking him if he’s heard from his brother, Jerry. She informs Jax that they go way back to the Helena Cassadine days.  Franco (Roger Howarth) comes to get a drunken Liesl and she breaks down in front of him about how lonely she is and all the secrets she knows about Wiley, Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father.  We see someone else eavesdropping on their conversation.   As the episode comes to it’s conclusion, Liesl is pushed overboard.  But who did it? Brad, Valentin, someone else?

Throughout the episode, guest star, Veronica Cartwright plays psychic, Sibley Gamble, who is hired by Ava (Maura West) to reconnect her to her late daughter, Kiki.  But in the process, Sibley drops bombshells at those at the Metro Court … and at the wedding reception.  She tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) she has a cryptic message from Madeline Reeves revolving around tweezers. She tells Franco he won’t be feeling himself soon and she warns Finn (Michael Easton) that he’ll still have more women in his life than he can handle.  And ,,, wouldn’t you know? Who should arrive at the reception … Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig)!

Courtes/ABC

As for the backdrop – the wedding reception – Liz and Franco had their romantic dip, Liz’s sons: Cameron (William Lipton), Jake (Hudson West), and Aiden (Jason David) performed an adorable song for their mom and step-dad, and Terry caught the bouquet! Will they give the good doctor a love interest?  If so, who might it be?

So, what did you think about Kim drugging Drew? Who pushed Liesl overboard? What trouble will Hayden cause?  Share your theories via the comment section below.
