THE BACHELORETTE: Hannah Finally Sends Luke P. Packing!

Photo: ABC

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!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Tells The Men To Get Out If They Are There for the Wrong Reasons

So, let’s be real here.  Do you seriously think all of the men vying for Katie’s heart on this season’s The Bachelorette, or going onto a dating-reality show, are all just looking for love without realizing the fame, attention and instagram followers that will accrue due to their appearance on the long-running competition series? With that said, some men profess they are on the show searching for love, while others are on the show are there for “the wrong reasons” – i.e. searching for fame.

Katie Thurston had her fill of the “wrong reasons’ on Monday night’s episode of the series, after contestants Aaron and Cody went at it in a mud-wrestling match that turned dirtier than just rolling around in the muck.  Later, Katie pulls Aaron aside where he he reveals that he knows Cody from San Diego, and know he has a questionable character, especially from his social media postings.  Aaron believes Cody just came on to the show to become famous. When Katie then confronts Cody about this, he is pretty unfazed and matter-of-fact and emotionless.  Next up, she boots Cody from the show.

After Katie hits an emotional bottom, she gathers herself together for the evening’s cocktail chats and smooches, and as she is feeling good again, Karl decides to confuse her and tells her that their may be other men in the house who are there for the “wrong reasons”. That prompts Katie to have her episode ‘drop the mic’ moment where she tells the guys that ,”if they are not here for the right reasons to get the ‘f***” out!”  The men are pissed at Karl for stirring things up with nothing to back up his accusations with and Katie is left (as we fade to black) in a puddle of tears.

BUT, before that there were some other watershed moments within the episode. During her one-on-one ‘wilderness date’ with Greg, Katie opened up to him about the death of her father.  Later, when they sat down for their evening date, Greg revealed his father died, and then it was his turn to be overcome, revealing how difficult it was to leave his mom, who was still grieving to come be a part of The Bachelorette season, and to vie for Katie’s heart. But these two clearly have a very strong connection leading people to wonder if Greg will get the final rose.

Earlier, during the awkward – “prove to Katie how sexy you are in bed, or how you will take care of her in bed” – or something like that, Mike the virgin cried during his testimonials as to how he would get up in front of her and the other men with his presentation when he is a virgin.  Mike decided to go with the honest approach and wrote a poem for Katie about how he would love her while basically admitting he was a virgin, as she sat on the bed on the stage with him. He won the award in the sex competition.  OK? OK!

So, who do you think is the frontrunner for Katie’s heart? Is anyone on this show there to truly fall-in-love and get engaged??? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!
