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: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.

So, what did you think of these four cliffhangers? What do you think will happen with Brad, Lucas and the car that Julian tampered with?  Will this be the end of Mike as his condition continues to spiral downward? Will Neil or Julian save Alexis from Kendra? What will Finn’s next move be?  Will he tell Violet that her mother is gone? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Y&R’s Peter Bergman Reminds Us All Why He is One-of-a-Kind in Memorable Flashback-Driven 30th Anniversary Episode

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless featured the highly-touted and highly-anticipated 30th anniversary show for Peter Bergman.  For three decades, and with three Daytime Emmys for his work, Bergman has made Jack Abbott one of soap operas all-time classic characters.

And, if anybody needed a reminder, or a refresher course of just how good Peter Bergman has been in this role, you needed to look no further than the tremendous flashbacks the producers of the series pulled to punctuated Jack Abbott’s life story since Bergman’s arrival on the scene, replacing Terry Lester in the pivotal role.

What was great about this standalone episode, celebrating a milestone for one of their legacy cast members, was that it did not show the same ole’ same ole’ clips that often can be standard fare in soapland.  Instead, viewers were treated to some of the more heartbreaking moments for Jack, i.e. when he tells Nikki that their son who had died saved another child’s life, and that he got to hold the baby.  Then there was the gut-punch when Jack realizes Phyllis has been sleeping with none other than Nick Newman, and he feels the fool and that she played him.  There is the moment when Jack tells his dying father John, that he will look after the family now, and there is even boardroom corporate drama that back in the day was so exciting to see.  How great were Jess Walton and Bergman together back then as Jill and Jack? And then there is the rivalry of soap rivalries between Victor Newman and Jack Abbott played to the hilt by Eric Braeden and Bergman, respectively.

Watching Bergman’s work in flashbacks would be enough on its own. Now add to that the real-time mature version of Jack, who has realized his many failings and how he would do anything to be CEO of Jabot, including duping his sister, Ashley with the Blood-Abbott clause and more, and you’ve got soap gold.  You definitely needed some hankies for this episode, especially watching the reactions of Bergman acting mostly by himself when going in and out of the flashbacks.  We have often said, no male actor can cry quite like Peter Bergman, and move you to tears.  And in this episode, he did that several times over.

How fitting that Jack was sitting around with his siblings: Traci, Billy, and Ashley as well as his mother, Dina, his son, Kyle and his niece Abby, that brought the episode to its conclusion looking back at the life and times of the Abbott family through Traci’s manuscript that Jack helped write.

In the end, Jack celebrates what being an Abbott means, and remembers those who have passed, and looks forward to new members of the clan to come.
