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.

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: 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.

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

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.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
