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.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Don Diamont & Scott Clifton Shine In Father/Son Scenes; As Bill Watches Liam’s Meltdown Over the Accident that Killed Vinny

On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, emotional two-person scenes were the order of the day featuring three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Scott Clifton (who may nab a nominations next year for this story) and longtime soap vet, Don Diamont.

In story, Dollar Bill has done everything to protect his son by covering up all the evidence in his attempt to save Liam from surely a murder sentence and going to prison.

Bill’s theory: if anyone were to find out that Liam was driving Bill’s car when suddenly out of nowhere came Vinny (Joe LoCicero) – who Liam hates – and he hit him with the car and fatally killed the guy, they would think he had intent and motive. (However, to us there has to be more to the story! Did Vinny just randomly happen to be on the road that Liam and Bill were driving on and walking across it?)

At Bill’s place, Liam is agonizing as he keeps flashing back to the accident.  When Bill comes in from a morning jog, Liam is astonished that his father was out jogging, when they are in deep hot water for covering up their now hit and run.  Bill gets angry and tells him he actually went to see if there are were any cameras near the accident and he is happy to report there were none, so Liam is in the clear.  Therefore, Liam needs to keep his mouth shut and let this go and move on with his life and reuniting with Hope (Annika Noelle).

Not able to live with the cover-up, the lies, and what he did, Liam is insisting he has to go to the police, but Bill shouts: “You are not going to the police!” Liam goes on to his own subplot theory that they can say he hit an animal and then turn themselves in. Bill keeps firing back at his son, that he cannot do anything of the sort. He has done everything to protect his son in this mess and Liam could screw that all up with one wrong move.  Bill says, “All you have to do is…” and Liam fires back, “Pretend it never happened.”

It is then that Bill tells Liam that killing Vinny will haunt him whether he’s behind bars or a free man, and that he should opt for the latter.  Now unraveling, Liam’s convinced the police will figure out their cover-up. Just then, Bill pulls out a news report on his phone about the hit-and-run that has no leads and no ID of the body.  He assures his son there will never be any leads because he took care of everything.

Just then, Hope texts Liam wondering where he is for their lunch date.  Bill tells Liam to text her back saying something came up, he is in no condition to see anyone till he pulls himself together.  Liam texts back that he can’t make it.  When Hope texts back in response, “I hope you’re okay,” that sets up the end of the episode where Liam begins to hyperventilate and cannot catch his breathe, and is frightened and grief-stricken, and horrified at what he has done.  Bill comes to his aid and tells him he will not let anything happen to his son, and to dig deep to put this accident behind him.  Bill expresses that if Liam can’t do it himself, to lean on him.

However, Vinny was just ID’d in the hospital morgue by Finn (Tanner Novlan), so there’s that!

Kudos to both Scott Clifton and Don Diamont for the riveting scenes between father and son within the episode.

So, what did you think of Scott and Don’s performance? How will Bill and Liam be able to continue to cover-up the hit and run of Vinny? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, watch the final moments from the episode below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill and Liam’s Car Ride Has Life-Altering Consequences

On Monday’s The Bold and the Beautiful, fans were shocked by the final moments of the episode leaving viewers, who knew that this week the show was promoting a murder mystery, just what will go down from here?

After Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) looked to be having a moment where they were finally finding their way back to one another, while Bill (Don Diamont) was talking about their children to Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), and having some tequila at the same time, that set up the kick-off to a new story arc.

Things will look pretty bad for Liam after he told Hope his feelings for Vinny, who is out on bail.  As viewers know, Vinny switched the DNA results to make it look as if Liam was originally the father to Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) baby, not Finn (Tanner Novlan).

Liam shares his feelings to Hope on the guy, stating: “I think I hate him. He treated our lives like a game.” He then advises Hope to keep her guard up in case he comes around looking for Thomas (Matthew Atkinson). Hope says he doubts Vinny will approach anyone.

When Bill and Brooke come to the cabin and Bill says some kind words to Hope about how much his son loves her, he exits with Liam.  Outside Bill tells Liam to drive his car home because he has been drinking.  Liam has never gotten to drive Bill’s car.  Once on the road, Liam is all smiles, as he says to his dad that things are finally looking up for him and Hope, and then suddenly Liam hits the brakes!

Liam is shaken as he knows he hit something and is visibly shaken. He utters, “Dad!” As the duo run out of the car they see a male body laying in the road… it’s Vinny (Joe LoCicero)! And the episode comes to a conclusion.

So, what do you think happens next? Vinny dies and there is a cover-up? Is there still a mystery? Will we go back in time and find out how Vinny was in the middle of the road anyway? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Cameron Gets a Gravesite Visit From Zander; A Very Preggers Brook Lynn Returns

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital revealed the return of Chad Brannon as Cameron Webber’s deceased father, Zander Smith, as well as the return of Amanda Setton in the role of Brook Lynn.

In story, an emotional Cameron (William Lipton) is overcome by all the loss in his life as he visits the gravesite of his biological father, Zander Smith, on the heels of losing his stepfather, Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth).  As Cameron looks at his father’s grave he goes on to say that he finally had a complete family unit for it to be taken away like everything else and everyone else he has cared about in his life including his friends, Dev and Oscar.

Cameron begins to lament what would life would be like for him, if Zander would have stuck around, instead of getting himself shot at such a young age.

 

Then, Zander appears to Cameron stating, “I get it, it’s all my fault.”  Cameron goes on to tear into Zander about the way his life ended, while Zander thinks he can still teach his son a thing or two, but Cam says he had the chance to be his dad and really blew it.  No matter what, Zander explains, “I will always be your dad.”  Zander understands that Cameron is angry and feeling all hope is lost, but tries to rally his son to not give in to that way of thinking, because he has so much potential.

Zander truly does not want to see his son give in to the same impulses that he did when he was young and that he wants Cameron to make the right decisions while at this crossroads in his young life.  As Joss (Eden McCoy) and Trina  (Sydney Mikala) show up at the cemetery, the ghost of Zander disappears.  Joss wants Cameron to stop the pity party as they all have been there, and all have lost people they love, but shares that they will get through it together. Cameron looks back and sees his father as he says he is loser just like his dad.  But, Trina and Joss tell Cam they don’t hang out with losers as Zander looks on.

Elsewhere, Brook Lynn, who is hiding outside the Q mansion, comes inside once alone with Michael (Chad Duell) and reveals she is pregnant.  Michael figures out the baby daddy is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), but Brook Lynn is not sure if she will even tell Valentin.  Michael warns her that she will be playing with fire with Valentin if she is not truthful.

Finally, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) has realized she is in a bad, bad way with all the creepy vibes she is now getting from Peter (Wes Ramsey).  She knows she has to protect her unborn child any way she can.

So, what did you think of the scenes between William Lipton and Chad Brannon? Are you happy to see Amanda Setton back as Brook Lynn? How will Maxie get away once and for all from Peter?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
