THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope and Thomas Make Out in Rome as Liam is Witness to it All

Photo: CBS Mauro Sostini

It all came down to this moment on Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.  After their “Hope for the Future’ fashion line is a huge success in Rome, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) and Hope (Annika Noelle) take off to do some sightseeing.  But not before, Hope is upset that Liam (Scott Clifton) isn’t calling her back or answering his phone. She thinks it’s a sign he is still upset with her. Meanwhile, Liam has just landed in Rome to be with her.

Once in Rome, Liam finds Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who apologizes to Liam for doubting Hope, telling him that Hope is very much in love with him.  Asking where Hope is, all Steffy knows is she took off.

Wandering the streets, as viewers get a glimpse of the architecture and beauty of Rome, Liam just happens to be standing underneath where Hope and Thomas are.


Together, Hope and Thomas discuss their success. Thomas tells her how impressed he is with everything she has accomplished. Thomas feels like they made history today in a very historical place.

Liam finally lays eyes on his wife and his nemesis. Suddenly, Hope can’t control her lust for Thomas any longer and goes in for a passionate kiss, all of this make out session is caught by a devastated Liam down below.


Meanwhile, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is being a bit of a curmudgeon. Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) is trying to get him to snap out of it. While speaking with the men and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), an Italian woman urges them to go look through the Aventine keyhole to see their destiny. Brooke likes the sound of it and tells the guys she is going to change out of her fashion show gown and meet them there.

Once at the Aventine keyhole, Carter encourages Ridge to look through it and see his future, and like a clockwork, who should he see though the hole … a lost Brooke, trying to find the destination..

Watch the final moments from today’s B&B below, where Hope kisses Thomas and Liam looks on. It appears Liam is about to be sick from what he just witnessed.

Then, let us know, are you glad that finally, finally, Hope made a move on Thomas, or are you feeling bad for Liam … or both? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Dump her and let her go to her “partmer” The character is ruined!


I totally agree.

Yes I agree as I am sick her denial!

You know Liam isn’t right for her and Thomas and Hope have a better partnership with work and it’s time for Hope to realize Thomas is a great partner. I’m happy!!!!


Im happy for Thomas and Hope they justake a better couple
Laid a nice person and wonderful father but him.and hope just don’t fit together like hom.and steffy do

Thomas is a loser and so is hope remember what Thomas has done in the past Liam deserves better

Yup no hope for hope. Not watching anymore all the characters are cheating. I know is a soap opera but I’m sick of it.

I agree it’s so bad I don’t want to see it no more


It would have been so much more epic if EVERYONE had seen that kiss. I mean, Brooke, Ridge, Carter and Steffy. Cut from face, to face, to shocked face. Brooke & Ridge’s little reunion would be finished.
Instead only Liam sees it.
So shortsighted

I think Thomas would be more loyal to hope then stupid liam ..he’s always been with Stephanie. And he’s not for hope thomas is the man for hope..



Let’s not forget Thomas is a killer.

So is Liam. Perhaps you forgot Vinny?

Nope he is not a killer Vinny jumped in front of the car.

No his not .Thomas killed Emma left the seen
Hope should have been a wife a mother not day dreaming about. Thomas also he didn’t pull back

Yes, it is disgusting what a wishy washy Liam has always been, especially when it comes down to Steffy. What do you think will happen when something happens to he and Steffy’s daughter Kelly, and everyone finds out that Kelly’s real father is $- Dollar Bill Spencer! These last couple of months, of Liam demanding that Hope fire Thomas, send him packing because of his own insecurities has been absolutely nauseating to me!! It has really made Liam look like a whiny little (the other term for cat ). Sickening to see a grown man act like a toddler, who can’t get his way. I can surely see why Hope would be swayed to see Liam for what he really is. Everyone just needs to get a lot fe, and come back to reality, and get a real job. Have a great weekend!

Absolutely! Liam always comes off with that holier than thou attitude. It’s nauseating considering he is the perpetual cheater in their relationship. It’s about time he experiences a fraction of the hurt that Hope has had to endure over the years because of his behavior.

Yes, he is portrayed as such a good guy. He is a cheater who could not make up his mind. He will run right to Stephie and cause problems with Finn. Such a noodle of a man.

JLR I agree

Yes you could say Liam drove Hope away with his constant whining over Thomas…

Yes he did

I’m sick of all of them. Are they going to put them together?
And break up Steffy and Finn and put her with Liam.
Didn’t she kiss Liam
That’s why I quit watching it

Liam do need to grow up, he is goofy and not a very good actor, all Liam and Wyatt do is sit around and do is talk bad about Thomas mental illness is a sickness and Thomas has made an effort to get better


I agree

Agree! Liam does whatever he wants so now it’s Hopes turn..

That doesn’t make it right. These soaps never leave any relationship alone haha


I agree..I think Thomas & Hope make a great couple!

So do I they have better chemistry

Leave Thomas with Hope

Liam ran to Steffy and kissed her.

Stephie is a bully

Hope is not happy with no one. She is like her know what that mean.

That’s ridiculous

Agreed. I didn’t want it to happen but since it did. It should have been photographed and made a scandal like they did with Brooke.

Taylor always gets done wrong that’s the one is Ridge true love

I think Brooke is Taylor is just like her son Thomas

I agree completely.

I agree 100% it is time that Taylor and Ridge get back together, Brooke has had her way too many times.

Taylor is sneaky and devious. They broke up a marriage. As a psychologist she does practice what she preaches. She needs to find someone that is into her. I am sick of the sleeping around and back stabbing to get what you want. Liam might be whiney but his concerns are on target. Hope needs to experience being alone and rejection. Just maybe she see she is messy.

Yes totally agree everyone should have seen it put I do feel bad for Liam

He brought it on his self always talking about.

That’s his karma I don’t feel sorry for him.

Pushed her into it. Always bringing it up.

Yes always talking about Thomas

I Agree.

I don’t the whiney waffler deserves it. He is the cheater supreme. Hope and Thomas are magic.

Me too!

Not me!

He’ll flip flop back to steffy like he always does but I don’t think steffy will go back to Liam. She will stay with Finn I hope

I hope so too.
Steffy and Finn deserve to be happy

I totally feel bad for Lian too but i agree for everyone as well



This is crazy stop this BS Leave Hope, Laim together Writters Find Thomas his own women not Hope

Thank you

Agree, great time for a dream!

I agree with that leave them together

You said a mouthful there and I agree with you 10,000%.

I agree same with ridge and Brooke leave them alone. Get Taylor a man



I agree. Taylor needs someone new or maybe her z Carter can get it on. He died with anyone snd everyone. Let Katie & Bill get bsck together


I do agree


I can’t even watch this anymore because I’m so tired of the DESTINY story lines! Brooke can’t live without a man to shack up with she needs to go back to Eric!! OMG the Story line is always the same… who is surprised that they were going to throw them together again! Brooke has been with every man on the show! Her daughters husband her sisters husband and anyone else that she throws one tear at! It’s laughable!! . Get new writers please!!

I agree. I get nauseated over Ridge and Brook. Over and over. Looks like they would do something with this story. Gets old.You feel stupid for even watching it.


Yes, they are going to lose what ever ppl, they still have to these boring storyline.

Yes new writers are needed this pathetic merry go round is nauseating and I cant stand the repetition any longer! I remember the sally spectra days when they had sooo many characters and story lines now everything is so predictable and cheesy!

Well, Sally is still causing trouble for two men on Y&R now.

Omg couldn’t have said it better. So so sick of the recycled storylines!! Do better writers!


They have many recycled stories. But the children are left with the disfunction. We need at least one couple to set an example of a decent marriage and family. It needs to be Brooke and Ridge. Cut Taylor and Thomas from the show. And Shelia.

Amen to that

You are so right!

Really don’t want Thomas and Hope together ..poor move on Bold And Beautiful

I like that agreed so show oh yeah she got it under control lol

I am so sick of the over and over with Ridge and Brook, I can’t count thee men she has been with and the times she and Ridge have gotten together and busted up, time for a change they aren’t their destiny.

I would have preferred Brook to meet a mystery man in Rome to freshen up the storylines. Her new man would be a cutting edge designer and convince Brook to battle Steffy for control of FC. Ridge would get dumped by Brook because she realizes Taylor was right about getting into a healthy relationship. She gets a backbone and feels SHE deserves to be CEO and have a man’s attention that is not divided. Lots of opportunities for storylines there!

I’ve always wanted hope and Thomas together,they have great chemistry and I hate Hope being such a good girl all the time

Agreed their superhot together


I love Thomas and Hope together! I can’t Stan steffy or Liam. Liam has always cheated on Hope and steffy is nothing but a tramp. That baby that she has that supposedly Liam’s is really his father’s child so that’s Liam’s little sister instead of his daughter I hope that comes out soon! In the meantime I hope Thomas and hope get married and have more children so Douglas can have some real siblings!

It’s a good story line. Sometimes you get a crush on someone! You can’t help it even if it’s wrong

He is a killer remember Emily.

She doesn’t deserve Liam!!!

No one does
He’s an idiot.

I agree Hope definitely is not good enough for Liam

Get rid of hope and thomasthey are bad

I am glad hope pursued there dream. Broke and steffy need to let her be. I am happy for her.. Liams part is getting old. I don’t care for the whinner

Whiners can’t be winners. Sorry, I couldn’t keep from making a comment that is so old – you know, old like the story line

While Rome looks beautiful this storyline is anything but Thomas and hope are such a fail and the fact that the writers think this a good direction to go in is sad in itself Thomas has gone off the rails to many times to discuss hope is a fool and can anyone explain why both Brooke and Taylor don’t move on from ridge Ridge is a lost pup who cares how much money he has Destiny not !

Agree about Tommy Boy N Hope But Ridge N Brooke is the iconic characters so they or like The Jessie n Angie of All My Children and Jessie played around for a minute too before he stopped as they got older wish we still had All My Children them was the days

I so Miss All My Children. It was an amazing Soap. They should have kept it and got rid of General Hospital. I also miss As The World Turns. Ridge and Brooke are perfect together. Liam and Hope are perfect together. Steffy and Finn are perfect together. They need to send Thomas and Taylor packing. I can’t stand either of them. Useless Son like Mother.

I agree with you


I am devastated I hate that for Liam he deserves better, and I am sick of Ridge and Brook they deserve one another two crazy people.

Why can’t this be a dream.Leave hope and Liam alone. Let Thomas find him someone else to love.

I agree. Maybe just a dream. This could be a new start for liam and hope.

Exactly and it should be. Liam doesn’t deserve to be hurt like this by his Wife!

A c and Mg,
It is a dream, but it’s a nightmare!

I agree


Why don’t Thomas just push Hope away and tell her HELL NO…

Completely agree with you!!

We needed more action like this.I felt it long ago Hope will turn out like her mom..

Liam’s instinct was right. No matter how Hope kept insisting, that was nothing going on with her and Thomas. She should have admitted. Maybe it could have been avoided.


I am sick of this show. The same old story lines. Round and round the mulberry bush. The writers seem to have a mind block for new events
Pls add some real excitement to the show or just take it off the air.

I think Brook and Ridge should be back together because they were married and Thomas mess that up she didn’t do anything. And for Liam he’s just as bad as Ridge always been back and forth from one woman to the otherso boomerang for him.

Amen. Basically just like what I posted

Exactly removing families I dnt believe not wen the kids is little now it’s going to shake up Hope n Liam family. He will definitely leave her maybe once he starts reverting back to wen they was getting it in and how vibrant and invigorating she was passionate maybe a little to much. It’s to see yesterday episode of Liam watching him makeout with Tommy Boy frfr

A little boring carrying these love triangles into the next generation

I agree! Let’s close the book on this one! Same stuff with Brooke & Ridge …3,2,1 DESTINY am not a fan ! Bring a good story line for a change! Why does everything revolve around Brooke??

That I agree, tired of Brook and Ridge. If the writers don’t throw a 360 curve in this relationship for a good moment, I’ll stop watching this show. Give Taylor a chance and see what Brook ah do…run into Bill arms.

I agree!
Taylor had left and Ridge came after her. Brooke and RIdge destiny, really!
She takes every and any body’s husband.
Hope is not innocent.
She slept with Liam while he was engaged to pregnant Steffy.
Let Steffy and Finn be happy
Let Taylor and Ridge be happy

I think is great so happy to see this Thomas and hope deserve each other

I wish someone was there to take pictures of if,and put on the cover of a magazine, try and let HOPE talk her was out of that,,,

Why couldn’t they just let Hope and Liam be ha6 and leave them be. Why ruin a happy marriage. Let him and Paris reconnect or bring someone new. Please don’t break up Finn and Stephanie. They’re good together

Yes but Liam always runs to Steffie when something goes wrong. And poor Finn will be left out. And Hope will beg for forgiveness like her Mom begging for Ridge. If you have to beg for someone it’s not a go. To bad everyone on that trip didn’t see the kiss. And they will blame Thomas. But it was Hope that went in for the kiss. And she is like her Mom. And why is everyone loves Brooke when she sleeps with everyone and she gets by with it?

All about sex

Liam & Hope are not happy too much pretending Steffy calling the kettle black no matter what man she’s seeing claiming to be in love with or love she’s always falling back in bed with Liam poor Dollar Bill. Who is she to talk.

Yes because we no the out come

Yes boring

Yes they are a boring couple together. It’s never going to last.

I’m tired of Liam whining. He’s pushing her toward Thomas. I never thought I’d say this but I hope Thomas and Hope get together.

I’m in total agreement.

Agreed 1000%

I don’t care for Liam at all so it was easy to giggle at the whole thing. Thomas is cute I don’t blame hope but she is so dull I don’t get her appeal. The Ridge Brooke in the keyhole thing was so dumb!

See, Tina, I am with you about Thomas. He is so cute and trying his best to not give in to Hope, but with Liam and his whining, I too am finally glad for the kiss, even though I wish everyone else too would have seen it, especially her nosey mom, Brook.

I’m so over this B&B story line! Like I said before it’s like watching a BAD rerun! I could care less if I ever see Liam again! So sickening! You have dragged this out so long…day after day!
New life needs to be brought to this soap!. New people, new story lines outside of this…

You are right

I would absolutely love to see Hope and Thomas finally get together! The writer’s have been dragging their heels for way too long now and besides, Thomas is a great guy who loves Hope unconditionally and would go to the end of the earth for her! Let him have some fun for a while!!! Liam had Hope and Steffy for the longest……. It’s time for him to sit back and lick his wounds for a while, show him exactly what Thomas was going thru all those years! Not so much fun when the shoes on the other foot, besides, he’s the one who actually pushed Hope into Thomas’s arm’s if you really think about it! HOPE & THOMAS❤

I’m glad that Hope kiss Thomas n I hope she leave Liam, I wish Ridge Steffy Carter Brooke had seem Hope kissing Thomas I hope Ridge n Brooke do not get back together because Broke will never b a faithful person to one man she have play d part of a slut to long if Ridge n Brooke get back together my friends n I will stop watching d show

Me too

Sick of The Bridge thing why can’t pick Taylor so much more suited,and tell what if Thomas the blame for this I am out the Logans get away with everything brook and hope can never do no wrong even when they had enough

Yes those are my thoughts too

Yes it’s about time for some excitement!!!
Sorry but I’m tired of the Brooke and Ridge break up make it’s very old I’ve watched from the beginning and it’s ridiculous.
And Hope and Liam just don’t have the chemistry!!!
Only my opinion.

I feel bad for Liam. He should dump Hope. I’m tired of her sweet and innocent act . Liam needs to find someone better.

He had he still loves Dteffie but won’t admit it.

Oh please listening to him sit around whining with Wyatt and Bill is so dumb. Men don’t do that!

I wish they would give Wyatt a story line. Wasn’t he supposed to get married? New story line.

I love Wyatt but they always push Liam on us who is so boring.

Same here,Hope always acts innocent and blames everyone else. She’s forgotten that she went after Liam while he was married to Steffy,and got pregnant. Tired of the whole “destiny”thing with Ridge and Brooke,the moment she had a child with her son in law, Deacon should have been it. But Eric,etc still have so much love for her!!

Finally Yey for Hope and Thomas! Liam is a winer, a whimp, good riddance. Sick of Brook and Ridge,really ???? Again?? Has Beens!!! Thomas over Liam any day.

The show shows Ridge as a weak man because he keep taking Brooke back after she continues to cheat on him two kids by his Dad Eric one kid by her son n law lose d baby by her sister Katie husband Bill she cheated with Hope boyfriend at Hope graduation said she thought it was Ridge what a slut from d Valley

Go Brooke

I hate that Hope gave into her fantasy love with Thomas. I’m upset about it and feel Liam doesn’t deserve her betrayal! He needs to move on now!

Hope might just leave Liam to go with Thomas he’s handsome and every thing, but i feel like hope is in for a big heartache from Thomas something just tells me his son’s mother is coming back they have a way of reviving people on the show once there wasn’t a body to prove that they are dead

They just need new writers,they need more actors. The story is just repeating itself. The story is just getting more nasty with Ridge and the slut. So sick of it. I’m taking a break from it. After 30 years, bye bye

Spineless Liam deserves this how many times has he cheated with Steffi countless and how many times has hope cheated on him never 1st time for everything

Absolutely sick of Hope and Thomas storyline. Have we forgotten that he knew about Beth being alive and kept it a secret. I don’t like the direction the writer’s have changed Hope trying to make her like her Mother. Hope has always been the level headed good choices person. I agree Liam needs to step up and be stronger but after the kiss yesterday I hope he dumps her. I’m probably done with B&B for now. Tired of the boring stories.

Thope are so superhot and don’t get me started on their flawless chemistry I’m definitely team Thomas and Hope but after that kiss I predict in the next episode they end up becoming inflagrante delicto after the consumption of their newfound love Thope ends up having twin babies together love them love them.❤️ ❣️

I’m tired of Hope, Thomas, and Liam. I used to never miss an episode. Now I can watch every other week and feel like I have missed nothing. Getting to be a waste of time. They need a new story line!!!

Same here iam sick of the stoy line too. Dont watch everyday anymore. Can easily catch up. It’s the same storyline get new writers to do do new stories

Don’t like the turn of events. Liam shouldn’t have been the only one witnessing the kiss. Getting tired if watching basically the same s**t over and over. If Hope truly loved Liam, she would never have brought Thomas back into her line. There are plenty of other designers and she would have respected her husband’s idea.

This show is so predictable and boring. Anyone could write for this show we all know what’s going to happen next. Get some new ideas or writers. Of course Hope was going to kiss Thomas right when Liam finds them. I bet he leaves quietly all sad. Ridge is going after Brook. Once it’s out about Hope everyone will say she is just like her mother. Boring.

Nope this isn’t going to be good for Hope and Liam Marriage kus now Liam sees wut Steffy was saying was definitely true. I dnt know if it’s Love ❤️ though he been wanting that to happen Kus Tommy boy went in also and it will hurt Liam he better stay away from Liam kus low Liam is a hot head like his daddy forreal and he may hurt him ijs we gone see in about an 1 hr 30 mins in Dallas Texas I can wait kus I want commercial free to Seamma about to unfold

No! liam and hope belongs together.why would you all write such a thing.

I hate that they ruin Liam and Hopes marriage. And I can’t stand Ridge with Brooke

Liam jealousy pushed the issues this is all on him and listening to Wyatt and steffy instead of talking to Hope about how she feels Liam created this mess now he must deal

So tired of these two couples get a life and move on with a different story line. You can miss a week and nothing new

Hope just screwed up big time.poor Liam has tired & tired.i hope she loses everything now she’ll tell Liam it wasn’t surprise to hapoen

She sure did. I hope that she ends up loosing Hope For The Future. It would serve her right!!

I don’t care for Liam, the character loved him as DylannQuartermaine. Liam is to wish washy

Absolutely! Move on already. Tired of whiney Liam and Brooke and Ridges “destiny”

I feel real bad for Liam.

This has been done and done!! We knew before Liam arrived in Rom,this would happen! Time to move on Liam. Now they will put Liam and Steffy back together. Why is this show even on. I delete more than I wat

Why in the world would hope want Thomas after all he’s done to her and her mom. Kept her baby from her, lied on her mom, tried to kidnapped her the list goes on and on. I hope Liam fights for custody of his daughter and wins I wouldn’t want my daughter around Thomas.

I couldn’t agree more. And don’t forget the Manaquin of Hope that Thomas had.i wouldn’t want any child around Thomas he is unfit to be a Husband. Or Father.

Hope is the good girl with moral, leave her alone. Let her keep her family intact.

Enough of these 40 year old love triangles; other soaps have more drama. As much as I hated Sheila; storyline was exceptional. How about Hayes gets sick, needs blood/organ and after all are tested, blood test reveals Bill is actually her daughter’s father. Finn has dilemma and partners with Liam, Stephy or Taylor. Katie is one who eventually finds out and tells Bill. DOLLLAR BILL finally has a daughter; he and Katie get together. Sheila returns gor payback and kidnaps daughter Finn and Bill partner up … wild ride..!

Liam is a woosy! Whine, Whine!!!!
He is needs a mommy not a wife!!!!

Get rid of this boring storyline same old stuff. We need some new excitement. Please find someone else for both Ridge and Brooke. What’s wrong you writer’s can’t put anything new together?

Sick of them same story line batted back and forth. Once again it’s like the writers have no imagination, so we have to keep reading the same story over and over!

I’m sooooo sick of the Ridge and Brooke. My God. Let’s move on. They are so fake and predictable now. Just let Taylor and Brooke make up. That’s much more drama friendly. Go hope go. You are your mothers child !!!

It’s about time. All he do is talk abou Thomas every day. He can see it wasn’t just Thomas all this time

The whole show is Bs they always have everyone cheating running around with each other what about a happy marriage love just that one person stop so much cheating
The world need more true love showing on TV and respect for one another, not one relationship is teaching others how to stay together and love each other thru bad
Time and good time we need that today.
Like Victor and Nikki on the young and Restless best couple every.


WWE King and Queen of The Ring 2024: Cody Rhodes Defeats Logan Paul to Retain Title; Liv Morgan Wins Women’s Title, Gunther and Nia Jax Crowned

On what seemed on paper as a probable underwhelming Peacock and WWE premium live event, was far from it.  Emanating from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, and streaming early in the day or morning the U.S., the 2024 edition of King and Queen of the Ring set up some major storylines heading into SummerSlam in August and even before then.

The main event saw the Undisputed Universal WWE champion, “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes battle United States Champion, Logan Paul. But here was the catch, after manipulation by “The Maverick” and his “team”, only Rhodes’ belt was on the line.

In the lead up, Paul surrendered his brass knuckles to ring announcer, Michael Cole, so he couldn’t use them, but as predicted, there was more than one pair and more than one way for Paul to get the knucks into the ring, thanks to his entourage, led by Jeff his manager at ringside.

Paul punched Rhodes in the ribs with them. Later, Rhodes accidentally knocked the referee out thus when he had Logan beaten with a three-count following a Cross Rhodes, no one was there to count three. Next, Paul delivered a low blow and was just about to use the brass knuckles again. All of a sudden at ringside, guest announcer, Saudi Arabian actor Ibrahim Al Hajjaj held on to Paul’s foot and kept him from punching out Rhodes.

Cody then had the opening he needed to deliver three Cross Rhodes and after the final one, he says to Paul, “I’m Cody Rhodes, Bitch!” and the rest is history. Rhodes retains the biggest prize in the WWE.

The opening bout saw “The Man” Becky Lynch defend the WWE Women’s Championship against Liv Morgan, who has grown more nasty of late. After coming in second on three various occasions which would have led her to title shot, she has managed to secure one here. But not before, injuring then champion, Rhea Ripley and sidelining her.

However, Dominik Mysterio played into the outcome of the match. Earlier in the show, Mysterio revealed he flew to Saudi Arabia to ensure that Morgan didn’t leave with Rhea’s championship.

During the back and forth match between Becky and Liv, Mysterio suddenly appeared at ringside when Lynch had Morgan in a Dis-Arm-Her submission hold which ultimately distracted her. Later, he throws chair into the ring for Lynch to use. However, she started arguing with Dirty Dom, and just then. Liv took advantage of the situation and hit a DDT on the chair and then her Oblivion maneuver and it was lights out for Becky. Liv Morgan became a WWE champion for only the second time in her career.


With the Q&K winner’s getting a title shot at SummerSlam, Gunther bested Randy “The Viper” Orton in what was a grueling match. However, the ending is marred in controversy. Gunther pinned Randy Orton after kicking out of on RKO because he punched the “injured” knee of Orton, which happened at the hands of the Bloodline on Friday Night SmackDown.

From the camera angle, it was clear that Orton’s left shoulder was not down on the mat, so it appeared like a mess-up. However, it seems odd that Gunther made no effort to ensure the other shoulder was down, leading one to believe a rematch or a fatal three-way may be on the horizon. Triple H took to social media afterwards and said the referee’s decision stands.  So where will this lead? Stay-tuned.

Nia Jax beat Lyra Valkerie to become your new ‘Queen’, even though the young upstart delivered a strong performance. However, Jax was just too big and too savvy. When Lyra attemped to flip under Jax for a powerbomb off the top rope, Nia was able to gather her footing on the second rope and slammed herself upon Valkerie, butt down, onto her chest  When Jax sat down on top of Valkerie it was with arms-folded for the victory.

Photo: WWE

After Triple H gave Jax the ‘Queen of the Ring’ crown, Nia taunted the crowd as did Gunther when he was crowned ‘King.’ Looks like it could be Nia vs, Bayley at SummerSlam, and as for Gunther, he said he wanted to go for the WWE Championship which is currently held by Damian Priest. But for how long? Triple H announced that Drew McIntrye is medically cleared to face Priest in Drew’s home country at Clash at the Castle in just a few weeks for that very championship.

Photo: WWE


The hometown crowd in Jeddah was all about Sami Zayn who hails from the Middle East.  Zayn was defending his Intercontinental title against Chad Gable with Otis at ringside and Bronson Reed. The match had plenty of heat from the crowd. Things broke down late in the match when Gable wanted Otis to clothesline Zayn. Otis hesitated, so when he finally decided to do what Gable said, Zayn ducked out of the way and Gable got the brunt of it, leaving the former tag partners at massive odds. That allowed, Zayn to pin Bronson and retain his championship.


The matches were solid. So, we are giving this PLE an A, with the best match of the night Cody vs. Logan, and Gunther getting a title shot he deserves, shoulders pinned down of Orton’s, or not!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Tracy Learns Gregory Died from Cody; Finn and Chase Share Their Grief

Friday’s May 24th episode of General Hospital featured some very touching scenes.

First, when Tracy (Jane Elliot) returned to the stables for a ride, she is met by Cody (Josh Kelly). He tells her she is needed in the house. Tracy doesn’t think anyone needs her there.

Tracy relates how Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) are on a plane to Florence. Cody tells her that they couldn’t get on that plane. Cody can only say, “He’s sorry.” It’s at that moment Tracy is hit with the realization that Gregory passed away.

Cody tells her what he knows of Gregory’s passing, but Tracy says that she knew this was eventually going to happen, but this feels so sudden. Cody is sorry she had to hear the news from him.  Tracy says, she’s not. She poignantly thinks Gregory must have been a lot like Cody when he was younger. Tracy goes on to say they both have an open way about them as he doesn’t miss a thing, doesn’t talk much, doesn’t push people around, and that he gives people a lot of grace. Cody is moved. Tracy decides she needs to head out.


Next, Tracy comes to the hospital and meets with Stella. Knowing Stella (Vernee Watson) is a patient advocate, Tracy tells her if anything comes up for Gregory’s death regarding bills or anything she can handle with her hands or her checkbook, to let her know. Tracy reveals that she doesn’t want Gregory’s family to worry about anything right now. She goes on to say to keep her name out of it.

Stella tells Tracy this is her loss to and its OK for her to grieve. Tracy shared that Gregory changed her, and she doesn’t want to let him down, at least not so soon.

At Finn’s, Chase tries to console his brother. Finn tells Chase he also lost his dad, but Chase can see how hard finding Gregory dead has hit Finn; given he has been drinking. Finn tells Chase that the person he found in that bed didn’t look their dad.  He cries that he didn’t want this to happen and Chase hugs his brother tight and says neither did he.

Sitting down together, the two brothers have a heart-to-heart. Finn realizes he handled the entire situation the wrong way and even pushed Elizabeth away.  Chase says there is no correct way to grieve. Finn feels such guilt over how many times in their lives he hurt their father, and now he threw his sobriety away, which Gregory was proud of him for.

Chase says he rebuilt his relationship with their dad, and he can do the same now with his sobriety. Finn asks Chase to get rid of the liquor bottle and so Chase takes care of it.  When Violet (Jophielle Love) and Brook Lynn return, Finn tells Brook Lynn he is so sorry that she and Chase had to miss their honeymoon. Brook Lynn assures him she is here for him for whatever he needs. Next, Finn says he needs a meeting and Chase says he thinks that is a good idea.


Meanwhile, in Albany, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is having all sorts of trouble in her attempt to get her law license reinstated during her her hearing vs. Fergus Byrne (Lane Davies). The judges will render their decision within 30 days and notify the parties. Will she head back to Port Charles, find out about Gregory, and wind up at an AA meeting with Finn?

In this episode, the always fabulous Jane Elliot touched out hearts in her scenes as well as Josh Kelly, Michael Easton and Josh Swickard.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Confronts Finn On His Drinking After Gregory’s Death

The saga of the aftermath of Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) death continuesdon the Thursday May 23rd episode of General Hospital. At Finn’s (Michael Easton), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) who knows he has lost his sobriety and has been drinking, attempts to tell the good doctor that she cares about him too much to let him throw away seven years sober.

Finn lashes out at Liz and tells her she doesn’t get to tell him when he is allowed to drink. Liz says she’s looking out for Violet (Jophielle Love) as he in turns looks out for her boys. Finn announces that Liz can stay here and make bracelets with Violet or leave. Next, he opens the door, and she walks out.

Immediately, Liz calls Chase (Josh Swickard) telling him to get over to Finn’s as his brother really needs him.  Meanwhile at the Q’s, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) gives a tender hug to her dad, Ned (Wally Kurth) because she can’t bear the thought of losing him.

Now back at Finn’s, he takes another drink and Violet emerges with the friendship bracelet and inquires where did Aunt Elizabeth go? Finn covers for the situation and says Liz got called back to the hospital, but she can show the bracelet she made to her later.

Just then, Chase and Brook Lynn finally show up. Surveying the situation, Brook Lynn can see that Finn has been drinking. She takes Violet for a walk so the two brothers can be alone.


Chase wants to know what happened, “step by step.” He shoots a look at the bottle of booze and says to Finn, “I mean everything that happened.” Finn tells him that Violet was at school and he came upon their father, dead in his bed.  At the point, Finn also admits he had a drink, maybe more than one, although it’s been such an emotional day he is not sure how many he has had. In addition, Finn did not cop to taking a sip of champagne at his brother’s wedding reception, which started this downfall.


Now the question becomes, what will Finn ask Chase to do? Cover for him? Help him to a meeting? Will he get rid of his brother quickly so he can continue his downward spiral? Weigh-in and share your theory via the comment section below.
