THE BACHELORETTE: Two Rose Ceremonies, A Lumberjack Fetish  & One Guy Tells Becca He Is Falling For Her Then Takes It Back

Courtesy/ABC

On week four of The Bachelorette, two rose ceremonies, a contestant professes his love only to kinda, sorta take it back, and then is shown the front door, and the return of David following his fall to the floor from a bunk bed took center stage.  Let’s begin.

At the top of the show, David is let out of the hospital and returns to the house with a broken nose and contusions on his face. Becca gives him a rose so he can go rest, and to not have to stand up during the rose ceremony.  Jordan continues to be enraged over David, and vice versa.  The “male model” cannot believe Becca gave the guy a rose.  Later at the rose ceremony, Mike and Ryan (who we do not recall ever was heard uttering a word, or sound ,during the last several weeks) were sent packing.

Next stop, Park City, Utah, where Becca and the 15 remaining contestants get to know each other a bit more on a massive Lumberjack group date and, for Garrett, another one-one-one date.  During one of her testimonials to the camera, Kufrin shares: “With Garrett, every time I think about him I get butterflies. He just makes me feel like I can be me and be my goofy self and he embraces that, because he’s the same way. He reminds me of home. I feel like my dad is watching throughout this and Garrett is just somebody that he would really, really like. And that honestly warms my heart.”  From all appearances, Garrett is the frontrunner, and after all he did receive the first impression rose.

Later at dinner, and on his one-one-one date, Garrett reveals to Becca he is divorced, and that is ex-wife, was “emotionally abusive”.  He has tears in his eyes when he admits that no one from his family has ever been divorced.  Turns out that Garrett was engaged for a year, and then two months after they made it official the union went bust.  To ease Becca’s fears, he tells her, “I’m going to be in it, because the next person I say ‘I love you’ to is going to be the person that I see myself spending the rest of my life with. So I’m here for you … and for this to work.”

Then, we learn Becca’s got a Lumberjack fetish stemming back to her days in Minnesota.  She has 13 of her gents get dressed up in flannels, and seemingly “arranged” for a competition that included: wood-chopping, log-flipping, and of course, axe-throwing.

Now at the evening portion of the date, Jordan once again parades around in his underwear, while Jean Blanc does a major misstep.

Jean Blanc, who feels he must make his move, now pulls Becca aside and gives her a special bottle of perfume, because remember he is “colognoisseur.”  Next, he pretends to whisper in her ear and then kisses her, which makes Beeca move away from him.

Later on, Jean Blanc somehow gets more private time with Becca and reveals: “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I really haven’t felt like this in a long, long time. I wanted to let you know that I’m truly falling for you, and I’m falling in love with you.”

Becca is not liking this one bit, and tells Jean Blanc she is sending him home, because they are on different pages.  As she is walking him out, he seems to want his perfume gift back.  Then, he goes back on his comments to her, saying that he said he was falling for her, because he thought that is what she wanted to hear.  Becca becomes defiant, and after making sure Jean Blanc is gone from the premises tells the remaining guys that she is really mad, and if they can’t be honest with her, they need to leave.

After her little emotional meltdown, she picks herself up the next day to go on a one-one-one with Wills.  Becca says he is the perfect guy to have been understanding and to pick-her-back up following her downtrodden previous experience with Jean Blanc.  Wills is super nice … Becca appreciates it … and gives him a rose.

In the end, Becca decides to forego the weekly cocktail party before the rose ceremony, and just go directly to the big moment, as she knows what she wants, or so she says.  She eliminates Nick and Christon.

Awkward moment of the episode: Lincoln stating that he believes the world is flat.

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.

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.
