THE BACHELORETTE: Becca Feels ‘Sick’, Demolishes Memories of Arie, Gets An Earful From Colton, Lincoln & Connor

Courtesy/ABC

On week two of Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette: a shocking revelation, a flying picture frame,  a dodgeball competition with a surprise winner, probably the most financially successful Bachelorette contestant revealed, and an arrogant, ridiculous model set the tone for this episode’s drama.  Let’s break it all down.

Becca’s trying to get all ready for her first group date, to which she invites a bevy of guys, including Jean Blanc and Lincoln.  On the date, she makes all the guys dress in tuxedos, as she tries not to “ooh and ahh”” at their bodies as they change into their formal wear.  Then, they’re taken out to an obstacle course, where they’re met by last season’s ‘Bachelorette’, Rachel, and her man, Bryan. As they go through this ridiculous obstacle course, Lincoln – who seemingly cheated – ends up winning the obstacle course, getting the fake ring out of the wedding cake, (don’t ask, long story), and as a result, gets a framed photo of him with Becca at the finish line as a keepsake.

However, Lincoln shoved his victory in all the other dudes’ faces who were on the group date, and when they were all having cocktails back at the mansion, he continually interacts with the photo, even kissing it!  Finally Connor, who has already shown signs of jealousy and anger, and not being able to contain his feelings about how this guy is throwing everything in their faces, tosses the picture frame over into the pool, and the whole thing breaks.  Then, Lincoln tattles to Becca, “I feel threatened physically.” Next, Becca has it out with Connor, who realizes he may have ruined his chance at love with her. And, guess what? She doesn’t give the ‘group date rose’ to either guy, she gives it to Jean Blanc.

Then, it’s time for Becca’s first one-on-one date since Arie Luyendyk Jr. dumped her.  She chooses Blake, (we kind of knew that was going to happen, didn’t we?), and they are taken to a warehouse where in a demolition segment, she gets rid of all her hostility, remnants, and memories of her time with Arie.  Later, in a sit down dinner with Blake, he opens up about his previous relationship. Blake reveals: his last girlfriend was about to dump him, because he saw the texts pop up from her friend on her phone. Becca then feels they have a lot in common and so does he.  They kiss … they make out … in fact, Becca was making out with a lot of guys on this episode. I think she’s the new “kissing bandit” … *wink,wink Arie.*

The next day, another group date ensues that includes last week’s ‘first impression rose’ winner, Garrett.  The men end up suiting up in pink and green team dodgeball uniforms. It turns out that none other than Leo, is the best dodgeball player, long hair put in a man-bun, and all.

Then, that evening Colton needs to confess.  Everyone in Bachelor Nation is thinking that he’s going to confess to Becca that he’s a virgin, because we saw that preview on last week’s episode.  But, the surprise is on us! Turns out that in January, just a few months ago, Colton fessed up to a relationship with Tia Booth, who actually competed for Arie on The Bachelor against Becca.  Now here’s the twist … Tia and Becca are good friends.  It has also been reported that Colton previously dated Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.  Boy, this dude gets around!

Colton explains to Becca about his relationship with Tia: “We had a weekend together, and we had a good time, but for me the timing wasn’t right to grow what was a spark into a flame.  If my feelings were strong enough I wouldn’t have come on the show. I think that from what I know of you, we could build something awesome.”  Becca doesn’t know how to take this shocking news, and she fires back: “I’m not gonna lie.  It makes me feel a little bit sick. I mean, I’m very attracted to you, I really like where our conversation was on night one.  I feel like we have a lot in common, but it’s a very tricky situation and it puts me in a very strange position and, I mean, it’s just a lot to take in right now.”  Confused, she gives the ‘group date rose’ to Wills.

Now, in the episode’s final cocktail party/rose ceremony, male model, Jordan, is now nearly naked, and he interupts David’s time with Becca, and they have it out in the living room.  Yes, Jordan is dressed in a pink blanket. However, Becca’s mind is elsewhere, she’s thinking about the Colton situation. She admits, “I feel like I see something in you that I’m very attracted to, and there’s that interest there, but until I have more clarity, I don’t even want to really invest in this relationship.  So if you sense that I am holding back with you, I am.”

Ultimately, at the rose ceremony, Becca gives her final rose of the night to Colton, so he’s still in the running, folks.  However, Becca’s no fool. She’s got a surprise in store for Colton, when Tia appears in next week’s episode, putting him clearly in an uncomfortable spot.

Time also brought to light in an article when The Bachelorette premiered, that John Graham, one of the still-in-the-running contestants, was revealed to be quite wealthy.  In fact, Graham helped spearhead the development of the app Venmo. It looks like his net worth may make him the highest-earning Bachelorette contestant ever.  Do you think money, from the self-described “emoji consultant” who helped invent Venmo, could trump looks, on The Bachelorette?  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of Colton’s confession?  Would you go for the money guy, John? What did you think of Lincoln’s ridiculous behavior?  Did you love the one-on-one date with Blake and Becca? Who do you think the frontrunner is now?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
