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!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Max Gail Turns In Another Emmy-Worthy Performance As Mike’s Battle With Alzheimer’s Takes Its Toll

For any of us who have seen our loved ones deteriorate right before our eyes, due to the horrific affects of Alzheimer’s, and have been witness to their confusion, dementia, angry outbursts, frightened looks, and uncontrollable tears, yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a stark reminder of how this disease is a gut-punch to those afflicted and their family members.

For several months, GH viewers saw a bit less of Mike; played brilliantly by recent Daytime Emmy Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, Max Gail.  And smartly, the writers have taken the time to advance Mike’s condition …. as at this point he doesn’t recognize his son, his family, his friends, and more.  For Mike, he is living in the past spirally backward and downward.

When Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) go to visit Mike at Turning Woods, it’s clear  how much he is suffering.  When Dev plays a checkers game with Mike it seems to calm him down, but when Sonny (Maurice Benard) enters, all hell breaks loose.  Mike thinks his son is actually one of their mortal enemies Joe Scully.

Earlier, at the Corinthos home, Michael (Chad Duell) sees that Sonny is considering entering his father in a clinical trial. Sonny says he knows it won’t cure the disease, but hopes the drugs in the trial can slow its progression.  In a key question, any family member needs to ask themselves, Michael asks Sonny to think first, if this is the man Mike would want to be?  Michael shares that Mike is no longer himself and sadly, there is no coming back from that.

All this becomes more poignant when Sonny sees first-hand how far Mike has slid.  Will Sonny be able to come to terms with losing Mike to Alzheimer’s?  How will he deal with it?  Gail’s partner in this entire storyline has been GH icon, Maurice Benard, who delivers poignant work throughout this story in very contained, emotional moments of deep hurt and pain, as Sonny watches the father he knew become lost in himself and to others.

Watch the key scenes below from yesterday’s GH below featuring Gail.  Then, let us know, do you think Max could end up in the running for another Daytime Emmy for his work?  Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.
