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!

So, what did you think of the sex and religion talk between Luke P. and Hannah that sent him home? Who do you think is the front-runner for Hannah’s heart now? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn Knows His Toes; Hope Lays Into Thomas

Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured two key story points. First, Finn (Tanner Novlan) is finally using his doctor brain/skills …  and putting all the pieces together to come to the conclusion that his bio-mom, the evil Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown), faked her own death, and her cut-off toe (the one that was supposedly severed when Sheila was attacked by a bear) that was presented as evidence, may not be as it appears.

Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who is in Finn’s office asks her husband, “You really think Sheila Carter cut off her own toe?” Finn replies, “You always told me she was capable of anything. She knew that we would never stop looking for her. Faking her own death was the only way out.”

Meanwhile, while hiding out at Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), Sheila is painting all nine of her toenails, and goes on to herself about how sacrificing her toe for her freedom is a little price to pay.  Later, Sheila tells Deacon about her sacrifice and the agony she went through to stay out of prison and that she will never turn herself in. Deacon tells her it’s time to do just that, or he will turn her in! Sheila is looking mighty pissed off to hear this from Deacon.

Back at Finn’s office, Finn and then Steffy examine Sheila’s toe under the microscope, where he points out that it’s too clean, there are no marks from a bear attack.  Sheila had to have done this to herself. Steffy is freaked knowing Sheila is alive, but Finn promises to never let Sheila hurt them again, professing, “I will find Sheila Carter and she will go to prison for the rest of her life!”

In the showdown we’ve been waiting for, Hope (Annika Noelle) throws down on Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) in the offices of Forrester Creations.  Hope asks Thomas how he can even have the nerve to show his face around the company, adding  “You really are shameless, aren’t you?” She goes to say that she believed in him.  Thomas tries to get a word in edge-wise to attempt to somehow explain his machinations, but Hope shuts him down before he can speak. Hope calls him out for sabotaging Brooke and Ridge’s marriage and using Douglas, his son to do it. Thomas says he can handle everything else falling apart around him, but not his connection to Hope and his son.

Hope is devastated by Thomas’ devious plot to call CPS posing as her mother.  She points out that the call never should have been made and he should never have asked their son to lie. “Now he doesn’t even want to see you anymore,” she exclaims.  Thomas doesn’t believe it, but Hope says it’s true and it’s all his doing.  Just then, Thomas starts blaming Donna. That was the final straw, and Hope finally loses it and screams, “Stop, Thomas! This is on you! You were the one who put him in the middle of this! I can’t believe I ever trusted you again.” She really goes for Thomas’ jugular when Hope says Liam and her mother were right about him all along.  Thomas asks Hope not to give up on him.  Shocked, he even had the nerve to ask her that, an emotional Hope says, “I let my guard down, I did. And then you tried to kiss me. You crossed a line.”  Thomas says he is a one-woman man and that is for Hope. She defiantly responds, “I love Liam. Never you, especially after this betrayal.”

Hope adds that she can’t bear the thought of working with Thomas again.  She ends her tirade by saying to Thomas’ face: “All I see is a sad, pathetic man who kept me from Beth, who didn’t care about his son’s safety so he called CPS on himself.”  Next, Hope leaves the office to which under his breath, Thomas responds, “You didn’t give me a chance to explain.”

As the episode came to its conclusion, we go back to Sheila outside of Deacon’s, now donning a blonde wig and in full disguise, and she says … “There always a way out.”  We fade to black … but not before a signature scary look from Kimberlin Brown as Sheila!

So, what did you think about Finn deducing the problem with the police evidence of Sheila’s toe? What did you think of the performance of Annika Noelle as Hope gave Thomas a piece of her mind and then some? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge Makes a Beeline to Brooke

Now that Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) duplicity and machinations are all out and the open, and Taylor (Krista Allen) also kept her mouth shut right before her wedding to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), the question on B&B fans minds is … what on earth will Ridge to do next?

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Ridge really lit into his son.  After finding out Thomas called Child Protective Services, pretending to be Brooke (by using Douglas’ voice-changing app), Ridge fumes that his son is in need of some serious help; adding that what he did was sick and twisted. Ridge tells Thomas he is also going to talk to Eric (John McCook) about Thomas’ place at Forrester Creations.

In his overwhelming sense of betrayal, Ridge yells at his son: “I gave you life! I gave you love, I gave you support, and you took it all. Is there anything else you can possibly take from me? I was so proud of you! It makes me sick to look at you.”  Those words stung and Thomas was left in tears in another excellent performance by Matthew Atkinson.

Now, Ridge had a major decision to make – what to do about his bride, Taylor.  No matter how much Taylor, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Thomas tried to make Ridge realize that he belongs with Taylor, and that this is an opportunity for them to be a family again, Ridge is torn.

Previously, Taylor admitted to not fessing up to Ridge about what she learned right before the nuptials (that Thomas made the call to CPS as Brooke) saying she was scared and confused since she was one step away from becoming his wife. “My God Ridge, I love you so much,” she says. Ridge tells Taylor that he loves her too, but he’s going to set this situation straight.  Next thing you know, Ridge walks out as a devastated Taylor is left crying on the couch with Steffy trying to comfort her, and Thomas’ life imploding before him.

Next, Brooke gets a surprise visitor at her door when Ridge arrives. A shocked Brooke listens as Ridge tells her that he learned something today that she needs to know. He starts with, “I should have had more faith in you.”

Ridge goes on to explain that he was so certain, that she was the one who called CPS on Thomas.  Brooke is stunned!  She tells Ridge she never made such a call. That’s when Ridge shares he knows that now as it was Thomas who manipulated the situation to blow up their marriage. Ridge claims he knew in his heart of hearts that Brooke would never do something like this. Before the episode fades to black, Ridge admits to Brooke, “I am more sorry than I can say.”

Now let us know, what do you think will happen next? Will Brooke be so hurt that Ridge had such little faith in her that she will not take him back? Will Ridge head back to the Forresters and get married to Taylor, anyway?  Comment below.  But, first check out the final scene between Brooke and Ridge from yesterday’s B&B.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.
