THE BACHELORETTE: The Final Four

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.

Good GAWD, why is this stupid show still on? & these stupid people…

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sasha and Valentin’s Secret Out Of The Bag: So Where Is Nina’s Real Daughter?

As many had suspected, there was something up in the relationship between Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and relative newbie to Port Charles, Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson).

The young woman who was introduced on the show back in the middle of September, and “turned out” to be Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) biological daughter (the one she gave birth to years ago), is not telling the truth, nor is Valentin,

At the end of Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Sasha is visiting Valentin at Wyndemere, where he tells her he wants her to go back to where she came from, and that if she sticks around, the truth will come out.

A confident Sasha says she won’t blow this and that no one will ever find out that she is not Nina’s daughter.  Thus meaning, Valentin set this whole ruse up to wrangle Nina back into a romance and marriage with him.

But as for Sasha, she clearly is intent on not leaving town, and getting her claws into Griffin (Matt Cohen), even though he is dating her “sister” Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Even Ava (Maura West) is telling Sasha to go after her daughter’s man, because, as we know, Ava is a woman scorned in regard to Griffin. And let’s not forget that Ava and Nina are longtime nemesis, too.  Adding to the confusion and deception are those second DNA results that came back positive to prove to Nina that Sasha is her bio-daughter, but she clearly isn’t.

So now that we know Sasha is a fake, that begs the questions … Is Nina’s daughter even alive?  If she is alive, where is she, and who is she?

Share your thoughts on where, or who Nina’s real daughter is, and what you think of the collision between Valentin and Sasha, via the comment section below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Ashley Leaves For Paris As Eileen Davidson Wraps Her Run

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless marked the final appearance of Eileen Davidson in the role of Ashley Abbott, and the two-time Daytime Emmy winner left on a high note with an emotional storyline that could just earn her yet another gold statuette next year.

As Ashley’s family drama came to its conclusion, she tells Jack (Peter Bergman), Traci (Beth Maitland), Kyle (Michael Mealor) Billy (Jason Thompson) and Abby (Melissa Ordway) that she is taking the patents and leaving Genoa City immediately.  She reveals that while she is completely disgusted with the Abbott clan, she is not leaving out of spite.

Ashley’s decided to start her own company with her own products. … and she will call it “My Beauty” – John’s nickname for her when she was growing up.  Next, she goes toe to toe with her brother Jack. He fires back that Ashley has left Jabot for company after company, time and time again.  Then, there is another flashback to an argument that ensued when they were kids over a mess that was less at the family pool.

Now in the present, defiant and standing up for herself, Ashley says to the group there is no offer from them that she would accept, because she plans to start her own empire in the same city her mother did years ago.  Then, Ashley announces she is leaving for Paris on a jet tonight.  When Jack and Traci bring up leaving Dina (Marla Adams) behind, who is losing her battle with Alzheimer’s, Ashley says she had made peace with her mother and that Dina doesn’t know who she is anymore, so it won’t make a difference to Dina.

Ashley turns to Abby and asks her to join her in Paris, but Abby refuses. They share a tearful hug.  Next, Ashley addresses Billy hoping that their relationship one day can be repaired. Then, an emotional Traci tells her sister that she will always love her unconditionally, but she thinks Ashley’s making the wrong choice.  The sisters share a hug.  When Dina joins everyone, Ashley explains to her mother that she now feels liberated.

Before she leaves, Ashley tells Jack she has nothing to say to him and walks out. Later, Ashley is at the GCAC and gets a call from Neil, and drops the bombshell that she is leaving for Paris tonight and starting her own company, and she wishes they could have seen where their relationship would have gone.

Just then, Jack shows up.  In a heartfelt conversation, he confesses to Ashley that he hates himself for starting this war years ago, and what it’s done to their family.  He confesses that part of the reason the “blood Abbott clause” was added was so he wouldn’t have to compete against his sister.  Jack finally admits that he was jealous of her and her talents!  After apologizing to Ashley, they hug.  Then, we go to a flash back to when they were younger and a young Ashley tells Jack she does not like fighting with him.

Now in the present, with a chance to reconcile with her brother, Ashley doesn’t take it. Instead, she stands up for her decision saying she needs to look out for herself now, first and exits  After all, how many times can she feel less than by her own family?

Davidson’s final moments occurred on the plane taking Ashley to Paris where she toasts her exit from Genoa City and on to her new life, while Jack is devastated looking at the empty Abbott house, with a big question mark for the future of Jabot and with a huge rift with his sister that may never be repaired.

Following the airing of the episode,  some of the cast who shared many scenes over the years with Davidson offered their sentiments on Eileen’s departure from the series, on a post on the official Y&R facebook page.

Marla Adams shared: I love Eileen so much. We’ve had so many wonderful scenes together. When I returned to the show, we did a scene in the Abbott Living Room and at the end of the scene Eileen cried. I knew then that we would make magic together. I will miss her but respect her decision and hope to see her soon.”

Beth Maitland sharedL “From the moment we met on the set these many years ago, we were sisters. Ups and downs, life events and comings and goings, we were always returning to the foundation of those days, and I will forever be blessed by the times I have shared with Eileen.”

So, what did you think about how Ashley left Genoa City?  Did she do the right thing for herself? Will you miss Eileen?

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Abbott Family Drama Leaves Ashley To Make A Game-Changing Decision

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless continued the emotional and riveting Abbott family drama that flashes back to when Ashley, Traci, and Jack were kids, and then to the present day; which illustrates how their relationship as kids forever changed their grown-up paths in business, and with one another.

Last week featured some intricate writing and directing and heart-tugging performances by Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Peter Bergman (Jack), and Beth Maitland (Traci).  As we head into Monday, it will mark the final episode of Davidson as she heads off the canvas and departs the role that she originally became soap-famous for, and has played on and off since 1982.

In story, as we flash back to the Abbott house in the 1970’s, a young Ashley tells John about her science experiment.  She expresses that she thought that if she worked hard and won a ribbon at the science fair that her mother would love her like she has always loved Jack. Unfortunately, Dina had already left them all behind.  Now in the present, Ashley sits with Dina, who is slipping further and further into dementia from her battle with Alzheimer’s for an emotional conversation.  Abby overhears their chat and is moved to tears.  Ashley tells Dina that she thanks her, and how she must have looked out for her when making the legal documents that gave her the patents to Jabot.  Dina can’t recall anything that Ashley is saying.  We go to another flashback, where John has to assure Ashley that her mom didn’t leave the family and all of them behind, because of her.  When young Ashley cries, John promises to always be there for her, but little do they know a young Jack and Traci are overhearing this.  Then, when a young Jack wants to share his feelings with John about how he has been affected by Dina leaving them, John doesn’t let him share his emotions. He instead reminds Jack that he has to be strong for his sisters.

Meanwhile at Jabot, panic is setting in between Jack, Billy, Traci, Abby and Kyle about what this all means for the company if Ashley becomes CEO and has all the patents.  Abby tells the group about how much Ashley has felt unloved over the years. Traci tells everyone that not one of them is living up to the legacy that John Abbott has set, and that not one of them should be running Jabot now.

When Ashley shows up, Jack makes her a very lucrative offer on paper, which Ashley rips up  An upset Ashley throws it back at her brother.  Abby accuses her mom of going against everything John stood for. “Jack started it!” Ashley yells.  Even though the Abbott family tries to reassure Ashley that they love and respect her, (and respect is what she wants from them, and feels she is not getting) she exits needing time to think.  Jack doesn’t know how things got this bad.  Traci explains that Jack was left to hold the family together after Dina ran out on them.  A tearful Traci talks about Jack buying Ashley a cake when she won the science fair. Jack has a flash back to when he and a young Ashley were arguing over who was John’s favorite child  However, Jack worried that John wouldn’t always be around, so he promised that he would be there to help Ashley if she ever needed it.

Later, back at the Abbott home, Traci says she knows how much attention John lavished on Ashley; while Jack had no one to comfort him. Finally, Jack admits he was very jealous of his sisters.  Next, Ashley arrives firmly telling the group that she will not to take a back seat to anyone.  Jack still holds firm about her not being CEO.   Ashley then reveals a bombshell, not only is she turning down their offer, but she is taking the patents with her and leaving the family and the company for good, and plans to leave Genoa City!  Everyone is stunned.

Kudos to magnificent performances by Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman, and to Beth Maitland for delivering the “Power Performance of the Week” and reminding us all while she is still such a valuable asset to The Young and the Restless.

So, what have you thought about how Y&R has told the story of the Abbott children’s past and how it affect the present? What did you think about the performances?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, watch Ashley announce her big decision below.
