THE BACHELORETTE: Becca Receives Bombshell From Tia; At ‘Hometowns’ Parents Warn Her Not To Break Hearts … But She Does!

Week 8 of The Bachelorette featuring Becca Kufrin, included the all important ‘hometowns” where she “meets the parents” of the four men she has chosen to be in the running for the final rose.  They are Garrett, Blake, Colton, and Jason.

The set-up has: Garrett bringing home a woman to meet his family for the first time since his divorce, Blake revealing a haunting secret from his high school days, Jason trying to open himself up and catch up to the other guys with their professions of love, and Colton bringing home a woman for the first time to meet his family.

And on that .. here we go:  In Central California, we learn Garrett grew up in an agricultural family-owned business, as he drives Becca around in his lap on a tractor, which she likes! Next, Garrett and Becca meet up with his parents and siblings.  His older sister is frantically worried and in tears that he could get hurt again and she doesn’t want to see that happen.  Garrett’s dad and mom separately plead with Becca to not hurt Garrett as he was torn apart by his divorce.  The odd thing:  while everyone is concerned around him, Garrett just keeps smiling. Guess that his constant positive nature illustrates nothing much affects him? Who would love to see the guy have one meltdown to show he is human? Raise your hands!

Next, Becca journeys to Buffalo to enter a chicken wing eating contest with Jason.  Her favorite kisser (as she constantly reminds us how much she loves his kisses), also shows off his hockey prowess at the hockey rink, which kind of turns on Becca, we think?   When the duo next head to meet the family, Jason lets us know that he admires his brother’s relationship to his partner, and his parents long-lasting marriage.  When he sat down with his brother, Jason got a warning that you better move fast now and tell her how you feel, because time is fleeting.  With that, after they left the parent’s house, Jason admitted he is in love with Becca.  She smiles.  What can she do?  She can’t admit she does, or doesn’t at this point.  Awkward!

On to Blake and his family in Colorado.  Blake, who was a high school football star, takes Becca back to his old stomping grounds, where if you recall his mother also works and where she met his former teacher and coach.  But the main reason we are at his high school is that he reveals that a school shooting took place there, and it had impacted the person he has become. Becca takes that intel in, but not sure how much that changes anything in his favor, or not.  Next, Blake walks her to the school auditorium where a ton of people are watching and listening to a performance by Betty Who! So, who Betty, you ask? Becca’s favorite singer! Now, just how did Blake know that?

Last up is Colton, who also is from Colorado.  This was not easy for Becca.  Colton’s father came at her with if: she has discussed her previous relationship with Arie enough with his son.  He also questioned her about how she felt about Colton’s past with Tia, and the reveal that his son was virgin.  Guess all that could cause a girl to run the other way!  After the family get-together, Colton tells Becca he loves her.  So now, all four men have virtually said they “love” Becca.  What more could a girl ask for?!

Knowing she has to send one guy packing, she enlists her “Bachelor” gal pals:  Tia, Bekah, Sienne, Kendall and Caroline to consult on her decision.  But things take a turn when Tia asks to speak to Becca privately.  Alone, she tells Becca she still has feelings for Colton, and it makes her “sick” thinking of Becca with him/cut to the gals who share the gossip of Tia’s text messages that she has sent them saying she is “sick” over Colton and Becca.

At the rose ceremony, no surprise.  Colton is the odd man out.  He is devastated, but Becca feels she made the right choice.

So, would you have given Colton the boot at this juncture? Of the men remaining ,who do you think will be the final two vying for Becca’s heart? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Why are you reporting on this, the worst possible example of “soap” on television?!?!? I tried watching one season, and I didn’t make it through one episode! It was the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen!

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.
