THE BACHELORETTE: Chris Seals His Fate & Reveals He Was Fat-Shamed, Jason Moves Up in Becca’s Heart, Six Now Remain

Courtesy/ABC

In week six of Becca Kufrin’s quest for love on the 14th season of The Bachelorette, annoying men were the order of the day, especially during a trip to Richmond, Virginia.

Chris, who is trying to recover from the mess he made last week, seems particularly ready to strike and lash out during the episode, and seems to have a continued bickering session with Lincoln, the guy who was convicted last month of indecent assault and battery.

This leads to a horrendous group date in front of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln impersonators, who revealed that the day would involve the men participating in a “political debate” on the capitol steps.  Who comes up with this stuff?  Now the men are forced to “campaign” for Becca’s heart.

Questions are asked of the remaining guys who give pat, boring answers to “impress” Becca.  However, the debate dissolved into a public verbal spat between Chris and Lincoln.  Out of nowhere, Chris brings up that he used to be 300 lbs and Lincoln ‘fat-shamed” him, and how Lincoln is not on the show for the right reasons.  Somehow, the Governor of Virginia also got roped into the episode standing up and asking a debate question.  Awful.

Kufrin, who appears to be embarrassed by what transpired earlier, and who is again ticked off, pulls Chris aside at the afterparty and confronts him about hearing he was aggressive and verbally abusive towards the other men.  Becca is pissed again, so she says she needs a moment to collect herself, and the other men are fed up with Chris, now that they have less time with Becca.  When she does calm down she picks things up with Garrett (Does anyone else think he is the top choice right now, by the way she acts around him?) Eventually, she gives the group date rose though to Colton, which upsets Garrett and the others.

After what we think looked like an awkward one-on-one date with Leo (Who Becca would not connect at the start of the date, but by the end let her guard back down) this ‘Bachelorette’ apparently enjoyed it.  So, Leo got a rose.   When he returned to the house where the men were hanging out, Chris saw he received a rose.  That was the last straw for Chris!   He heads over to Becca’s hotel and her room.  This sealed his fate.  Once inside, he proclaims to Becca that he could see himself marrying her, after just last week saying he was considering going home because he wasn’t sure where their relationship was going.  Becca cuts him off and sends him home, saying that the two of them would never work out.

However, in the best one-on-one date we have seen Becca have all season, she finally gave Jason a chance.  Even though they attended a weird goth “Unhappy Hour”, when they finally sat down at a “dinner table” to discuss their lives, Jason revealed what it was like watching his father losing his grandmother to Alzheimer’s and Becca followed up with talking about losing her dad when she was only 19.   Jason also had the advantage of the producers lining up three of his best friends to surprise him on his date with Becca.  This humanized Jason even more, and made him look like a “stand-up” guy to Becca, and actually made him appear to be the most down-to-earth of all the men still in the running.

At the end of the episode, Becca once again did not want to have a cocktail party, which would have given Connor maybe one last chance to get some “me” time with her. However, Becca already knew, who she was going to send packing so she wanted to just have the rose ceremony.  When the ceremony went down it was Connor and Lincoln who were out.   This left only six: Jason, Colton, Garrett, Wills, Leo and Blake.

What did you think about Chris’ meltdown?  Who do you think has the best odds at getting the final rose now? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: J.T. Holds Sharon, Nikki & Victoria Hostage With Dire Consequences For All

While The Young and the Restless left us with a major cliffhanger on Wednesday, and was on yesterday, or today due to the March Madness NCAA College Basketball tournament games, the show provided a sneak clip of a little more of what happened after J.T. passes out from a massive headache, and Sharon (Sharon Case), Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) are feeling the effects of the gas pipe leak leaving all of them passed-out and in peril.

But, what did you think of J.T.’s return thus far … and his trapping the women in the cabin and wanting payback for burying him alive? And … how J.T. revealed how he survived via the Genoa City sewage system?

Clearly, J.T. has something major and medically wrong with him.  Did he get a brain tumor after Nikki clobbered him to the head with a crowbar and from being buried at Chancellor Park?  Could J.T have had a medical issue no one knew about that could have been causing his abusive behavior toward Victoria and Victor and the Newman clan?  So many questions to be answered.

Outside the cabin is Billy(Jason Thompson) a busybody Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), and Victor (Eric Braeden) on his way too! Will they all save the day?

No matter what; Thad Luckinbill (J.T.) delivered another great performance as he finally comes face-to-face with the women that put him six feet under.  When J.T. is on the screen  … everyone takes notice.

Watch the sneak peek clip for next week’s Y&R, and let us know what you thought of Wednesday’s riveting scenes and what you think is wrong with J.T? Comment below

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’ As Ava Learns The Devastating Truth About Ryan

Last week on key episodes of General Hospital, the truth was finally out that Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) was masquerading as his twin brother, Dr. Kevin Collins, and that Ava Jerome (Maura West) was an unsuspecting victim in all of this.  As the week began, Ryan and Ava had gone over the bridge, but Jason (Steve Burton) was able to save Ava and pull her back to the bridge, and that set the stage for a powerhouse series of performances by West.

On the bridge with Laura (Genie Francis), who is trying to make Ava comprehend the harsh realization that she has been with a serial killer this entire time, and not the real Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), Ava doesn’t believe what Laura is attempting to tell her.  She believes that Kevin had a mental breakdown.  Laura explains to Ava that Kevin is at General Hospital, while Ryan has been posing as him.  In Ava’s version of the situation, she thinks the switcheroo happened in the last 48 hours when Ryan wanted to whisk her away to be married.  Laura then tells Ava that Ryan switched places with Kevin months ago, and she has never been with Kevin.

It is a horrifying reality for Ava to grapple with as she insists that Kevin loves her.  However, moment by moment, Ava can no longer deny that harsh truth that is right in front of her.  She had sex with her daughter Kiki’s murderer the night she was killed, and she has been sleeping with the wrong man this entire time.

In heartbreaking scenes, Maura, along with another wonderful performance by GH icon, Genie Francis, illustrated the raw pain and devastation of a woman who has been so blindsided by love, violated, and deceived all at the same time.  The scene where Laura holds Ava on the bridge as she collapses with anguish was soap gold.  But, never underestimate Ava Jerome!  You know she will get her payback.

In another episode, a now drunken Ava heads to the GH to see Kevin for herself, but finds Franco (Roger Howarth).  First, she blames Franco, then he makes her understand that it was Ryan who murdered people and deceived everyone.  He was just helping the PCPD snuff out the serial killer.   She tells Franco that Ryan made her feel like a goddess and that he worshipped her and helped her in her time of need following Kiki’s death.  Ava tells Franco that she hopes Ryan’s still alive so she can kill him herself!

And still in another moment, Ava runs into the real Kevin in the hospital hallway.  Ava loses her grip and slaps him in the face accusing him of killing her daughter.  Scott (Kin Shriner) pulls her off Kevin, and tries to get her to understand that Kevin was in surgery at GH when she was with Ryan in Niagara Falls.

Sitting down with Ava, Kevin apologizes for what Ryan did to her and everyone else.  Kevin thinks she needs to speak with a therapist, but not him and he will recommend someone.  Later, alone in the hospital corridor, Ava sees a poster of Kevin Collins and rips it to shreds as Scott comes by to calm her down. She sinks to the floor in sorrow over Kiki’s death, and how she ended up falling for Ryan.

Scene after scene, moment after moment, you can’t get better than West.  Ava is a delicious complex character, who has been so unlucky at love, is so flawed, and at times so revenge-filled, and yet in the hands of the oh-so-skilled and talented Maura West, she has humanized Ava, so that we can’t help root for her to get back on her feet after she falls so far down, so we can witness what trouble she will stir up next.   All of this to say: Michael Fairman TV names GH’s Maura West the ‘Power Performance of the Week”.

So, what did you think about of Maura’s performances on  GH? Did Ava finding out the truth about Ryan live up to everything you hoped it would be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Ava Is Trapped With A Serial Killer

Ava Jerome (Maura West) got an eyeful on Thursday’s episode of General Hospital when she finds Carly (Laura Wright) gagged and knocked out in the trunk of “Kevin’s” (Jon Lindstrom) car.  Just then, Carly begins to open her eyes, but Ava is stunned when she finds “Kevin” standing behind her.   When Ava is trying to process what she just saw and her groom’s reaction to the sight of Carly in the truck of his car, he tosses it off, and lets her know he has a handle on everything and to go back to their motel room and wait for him.

Later, in their motel room in Niagara falls, Ava considers calling 911, but in that moment decides against, and begins to think that “Kevin” has had a mental breakdown as he has in the past.  When he shows up, “Kevin”asks Ava to trust him,  But when Ava asks why Carly was in the trunk of his car, he responds that it’s a wedding gift for his bride-to-be.

Meanwhile, the manhunt is on for Ryan Chamberlain as the real Kevin Collins has now been admitted to General Hospital.  Chase (Josh Swickard) fills Lulu (Emme Rylan) in on what is going down and she finally remembers it was Ryan, not Franco (Roger Howarth), who stabbed her, and she was his victim when Ryan hypnotized her to believe Franco was the serial killer.

Laura (Genie Francis)is on her way to Niagara Falls with Jason (Steve Burton), who is going to find Carly and bring her home as he is worried sick about his best friend.  Cameron (William Lipton) who is in the Falls with Joss (Eden McCoy)and Oscar (Garren Stitt), who has had a major seizure, runs into Ryan, but doesn’t know it, until he has a phone call with Liz  (Rebecca Herbst) who fills him in that Franco is not the murderer, but Ryan is.  Cameron has the tip to help all, with the name of the motel where Ryan is at.  Liz phones Laura and she and Jason head off to find the motel..

When Jason and Laura arrive at the cabin, Laura stays in the car as Jason grabs his gun and heads to Ryan’s room.   When an unnerved Ava tries to  tell “Kevin” that he must let Carly go and bring her back to Port Charles safely before they get married, he informs  Ava there is nothing for her to worry about.  He has already taken Carly five miles east of the motel.  Next thing you know, the scene transitions to a shot of Carly lifeless on the ground.  We go back to Jason, who kicks down the  door to Ryan’s room with his gun drawn.

So, what did you think of Ava’s reaction to a kidnapped Carly in the trunk of Ryan’s car? What will happen when Ava realizes she is with Ryan Chamberlain? Share your thoughts as this story heads to its major conclusion, or is it?
