THE BACHELORETTE: The Final Four

Courtesy/ABC

A virgin, a guy who “likes” controversial and seemingly right wing Instagram posts, an insecure hottie, and the seemingly to-good-to-be-true nice guy are all in the running for Becca’s heart after the smoke cleared on Monday night’s installment of The Bachelorette!

After the awful trip to Richmond, Virginia as the backdrop for her dates, this week saw Becca take her men to the Bahamas – and for this week’s twist – the roses will be given out on the dates with the recipients becoming the final four, and moving on to the all important “hometowns” were we meet the ‘fam!’

The first one-on-one date goes to Colton, which upsets Blake greatly.  After Becca (the make out bandit) takes the man she acknowledges is the hunk of the group out on a boat for their date, she says “He could just pick me up and do whatever he wants to do.”   Next, out of nowhere, comes a guy on to their boat, with some conch!  It’s known as the “Bahamian Viagra”, and as Colton and Becca eat some of this worm-like aphrodisiac, what Becca doesn’t know is that getting her guy, Colton all sexed up, doesn’t mean he is going to have sex with her!  Why? Because he is a virgin.  And in the moment ‘we have all been waiting for the whole episode’, during their after-date “dinner”, Colton confesses to Becca: “I haven’t had that many girlfriends, that many dates, because of sports, because of that, I still am … I am a virgin.”

Becca is clearly taken aback at first and says, “Really?” What’s a girl to do next? She hightails it out of the scene with Colton saying she needs a moment, while he sweats it out that this in the end of the line for him.  Things take a positive turn when Becca returns to the table and Colton tells her, he isn’t waiting for marriage, he’s just waiting for “the right heart.” Becca gives him a rose, and when he shows back up in the hotel where the other suitors await, they are visibly pissed off that the “virgin” was not tossed out of the competition.

The next one-on-one date goes to Garrett, and leaves Blake still fuming, and on edge.  Becca takes Garrett flying around the Bahamas. They then make out in the ocean.  Garrett, who is always up and fun with Becca, tells her he rarely lets things get him down.  When pressed over dinner about what went wrong in his relationship with is ex-wife, he later tells Becca the thing we think she has been waiting to hear: “Everything that I see in you is, like, everything that I’m looking for in a wife, and I’m beginning to fall in love with you.” Becca is over the moon.

Next, Blake gets the last one-on-one date card ending his misery.  Leaving Leo-Wills-Jason for the three-on-one date, and you kinda knew what would happen there.  For Blake’s date, he goes to a “impromptu” Baha Men’s concert, where he proceeds to show off his dance prowess – he’s got the moves.  Later alone on the beach with Becca, Blake admits his “freak out” of not getting a date card.  Becca answers with: “In a way, I do sympathize with Arie, because I couldn’t understand how you could feel so strongly for multiple people. I see how difficult it probably was for him at the end.”  That doesn’t make Blake feel too good to hear her say that!

When it’s time for his ‘vulnerable’ moment, while at their dinner date, he talks about his rough upbringing with his parents, who are divorced, and how his mother was actually having an affair and fell in love with his former basketball coach/English teacher, while married to his dad.  Blake tells Becca he is in love with her!  She is all smiles.  Later in her own confessional, Becca admits she is love with Blake, too.

Now the agonizing three-on-one date: Leo is given the boot, then an upset Wills is next, leaving, of course, Jason who gets the final rose.

So there you have your final four:  Jason, Colton, Garrett, and Blake.  Who will it be?  The promo for next week looks like trouble ahead for Colton and Becca, featuring the return of Tia!  Share your pick on who you think Becca will choose via the comment section below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.
