THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Courtney Hope Returns & Makes Us Love Sally All Over Again … Even Though She’s Got That Gun Pointed At Wyatt!

Courtesy/CBS

On Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, viewers saw the return of Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope).  How do we find Miss Sally? Getting schnockered at the Bikini Bar.  But, who should also be there ready for some libation? Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks).

As Sally drowns her sorrows in booze, and believe you me, she has plenty to drown, we learn the heartbreaking story of how Sally really has lost everything.

Wyatt sees Sally and strikes up a conversation.  He wonders why she is not in New York.  Sally reveals that although she went to be with Thomas, he dumped her and got back together with Caroline, even after Caroline was faking her illness.  Sally orders another round of drinks and says he was nothing but the, “Flavor of the month,” to Thomas.. She goes on to say how all of the Spencers make her sick.  Wyatt argues the point that only two Spencers have wronged her which of course includes his father, Bill (Don Diamont), who demolished Sally’s business … literally!  Sally decides to leave, but her credit card is declined and she has no cash on her, and announces she is going to go sleep on the beach. Wyatt will not let her do that, and takes her home with him to give her a place to sleep on his couch for the night.

Once at Wyatt’s, a distraught Sally admits she has nowhere else to go.  She returned to L.A. on instinct, and lists the things that were taken from her including: her fashion company, and Liam (Scott Clifton), etc.  When Wyatt tries to get her to sit down, she drops her purse.  As Sally turns, she sees everything has fallen out of it including a gun, which Wyatt sees.  Emotional and fed up, she admits she is alone with nothing, because of Wyatt’s father, Bill.  Sally is aiming to shoot at Wyatt as he tells her to stop, and we hear a shot ring out.  The episode fades to black.

Courtney Hope is so good at Sally that you root for the down-on-her-luck character who is a fighter and will claw her away back, even though she makes some radically bad decisions along the way.  We are glad that B&B has brought the characters back to the canvas as Courtney Hope infuses her with a fresh perspective and one that is very different character than the other women on the canvas.

So, do you think Sally will seek massive revenge on Bill?  Will she end up with Wyatt? Share your thoughts on Sally’s return to B&B in the comment section below.

Hope she and Wyatt AND Liam and Steffy gang up on Dollar Bill and DESTROY him!!!! Love Courtney being back and hope she gets a prominent storyline!!! I guess that would be a good pairing of Sally and Wyatt!! Let’s see!

I absolutely love this fiery redhead! So glad she’s back, and hope Wyatt will be man enough for her, especially when it comes to standing up to Bill.It didn’t work out for he and Katy, because they were both afraid of his wrath.Sally is not afraid of him, or anyone, maybe her strength and courage will rub off on Wyatt.

Hi Violet…really glad Sally is back as well. I think Wyatt’s perfect for her and likewise for him. Thomas was a wash, with the same story as Liam…the baby made the difference and the moms won. And as for Liam…he always turns out to be an unreliable wimp. Must admit I did enjoy his memory loss story with Quinn/Rena. Or when he is an animal activist. But why any woman would trust their heart to him is a mystery to me.

Hi Rose, loved your reply, and agree with you about Liam. He just tries to be everything to everyone, and somehow looses what he really wants. In my day, we would call him wishy washy. I do not think of him as a wimp, just a too nice guy. I liken him to Nick on Y&R. I know a lot of people do not think of these two as strong men, but I would take either one, before Bill Spencer and Victor Newman, who are evil, personified.

Violet…I like wishy washy.

They were afraid, but Katie was concerned about Will getting confused about Wyatt being his brother. Funny thing was, not 5 minutes after Katie and Wyatt broke up, Thorne goes in to comfort her and they start kissing. So heartbroken was she

like the return of Spectra and enjoy this actor as a new generation Sally, but please let’s have some real story and action. Not just a round of bedding and aching sappy hearts. Keep the couples together. Let them gel. And let the suspense, corporate intrigue, and real world concerns in for some drama. Might someone run for political office? Can there be a real mystery with consequences? B&B has received high honors for its social justice spotlight on ‘very special episodes;’ why not develop those as they did back in the day when Stephanie wandered off without her memory?

Lakovos…Like the return of Sally and your other ideas. EXCEPT No Politics. Too much of that elsewhere in real life.

Loving the pairing of Wyatt and Sally. I hope it’s not short lived like it was with Katie, although I can understand why. I guess now Thorne is going to wind up with Katie. Atc least some of the other cast members are finally getting some much deserved air time. There is only so much of Steffi I can take. But the show needs to pick up the pace a bit. I guess we’ll have to wait and see

I don’t know where else to speak of Hope, as this new format seems to be broken up into characters, and not each show.
Anyway, today’s show left me wondering about Hope’s next love interest,in the way they recycle characters.There are no young men left, so who will they use for her? It scares me to even be typing the names of Justin and Bill. Is there anyone I missed? Oliver is long gone, and they don’t do much hiring on B&B.

Love, love,love Sally! She’s got so much more to offer than pushy Steffy and whiney, clingy Hope. If you want Wyatt, you go get him girl!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
