THE GOLDEN BACHELOR: Gerry Chooses The Final Three For Hometowns: Are You Happy With His Picks?


When the dust settled on Thursday night’s episode of The Golden Bachelor, three women were sent home, and three remained.  The ones still in the running for the final rose have made it to the coveted hometowns, where next week, Gerry will meet their families.

As viewers have seen, the rose ceremonies are more of gut-punch for the contestant vying for love then on traditional episodes of the ‘Bachelor’ franchise. Gerry, the ‘Golden Bachelor’, is consistently aware of how devastating it must be for the women to learn he has not chosen them to continue in his journey to find love later in life.

The women, many of whom haven’t felt the yearnings of falling in love for the first time in years, also appear more heartbroken, making this reality series much more touching than its usual counterparts.

On this episode, Faith gets a one-on-one with Gerry. The date cemented Faith in Gerry’s heart as one of the frontrunners.  That was most true while on the boat, following their helicopter ride … to the boat!  There, Faith admitted some details about her past. She told Gerry, “I lived a lot of time alone, like a homeless teen. I didn’t have a mother and a father. That kind of childhood made me think, maybe there’s something in me that’s not whole.”

Faith went on to share that the trauma from her childhood has followed her throughout her life, including when it comes to the men she’s dated. But with Gerry, she can see a relationship with a man who is emotionally open and healthy. Gerry loves hearing that and she gets a rose.

On the group date with the remaining five contestants, Gerry wants to see their ‘inner-child’ so he takes then to the Santa Monica Pier for games, rides and chats. Leslie, has been struggling through the whole episode for the deep feelings she has developed for Gerry and is worried it may not be enough to get her through to the hometowns. She even tells him her fears.

After the group date, Gerry informs the women, he can’t give out the group date rose.  He needs more time to think about his feelings and who he wants to include in the all-important hometowns. That means, at the rose ceremony, Gerry will give out the last two roses.

Ellen, who has professed her love for Gerry to him, is about to be blindsided. Leading into the episode, the producers of the show edited a promo which led viewers to believe that when Gerry says “You’re my girl” it was to Ellen, but it was not! She further sticks her foot in her mouth talking with Gerry on the group date: “I am absolutely falling head over heels in love with you. I can’t wait to have my children, my best friend Roberta meet you. I know they would adore you as much as I do.”

Now it comes down to the rose ceremony. A tear-filled Gerry gives out roses to Leslie and Theresa. That means, that Ellen, Sandra and Susan are sent home.  Gerry asks Ellen if he can walk her out.  As they sit in front of the SUV, before it takes her away, Gerry tells her that this was “the most difficult decision” of the night to send her home. However, he just had to make the right decision for his future.  As a parting statement, he says to Ellen, “I hope you stay positive. Because that’s you.”  Ellen has had enough and says, ‘she’s gotta go.’

Inside the SUV, Ellen shares, “I just thought he was the one. This experience has been one of the best experiences of my life. I have a lot more optimism about love and the possibility of finding love at this stage in my life.”  If they decide to do a ‘Golden Bachelorette’, Ellen might be the perfect choice!

So, who are you rooting for to be the woman Gerry chooses for the final rose? Are you hoping it’s Theresa? Leslie? or Faith? What did you think of Ellen’s elimination? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

As much as I liked Ellen, she became a bit needy and showed desperation in the end. Always better to show interest but keep some independence as well.

Funny, these are the three I like the least, especially Theresa, the big mouth that ran and told Gerry about that other woman telling her to ” zip it” because she confided everything she and Gerry did and how he came to her room to talk and console her. She didn’t tell or confide in her out of meanness or bragging, just had a big mouth .

Just adding that prolonging the agony is not helping. He’ll be stuck with one of these women, glad it isn’t me making the choice. Don’t care for any of them, least of all Theresa.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Elizabeth and Jason Have a Heart-to-Heart; Is a Liason Reunion Possible?

Have Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) 2.0 finally gone kaput? It would seem so. On Monday’s June 10th episode of General Hospital, it looks like the two now have what could be an insurmountable rift. Finn is drinking and can’t stop. Liz finds him with another woman drunk in his apartment, and can’t put herself in another relationship with someone who has an addiction (Remember, Lucky?).

Who should save Liz from an uncomfortable situation with Finn, but none other than Jason (Steve Burton). He comes upon on the scene where Finn is grabbing Liz’s hand to not leave him, but she insists it’s over between them.

Finn has hit his lowest point.  He has continued to spiral downward since the death of his father, Gregory.  Jason brings Liz to the Metro Court pool, which is closed at this time.


She admits to Jason, she wasn’t ready to go home and answer questions from her kids. A somber Jason says that she deserves better than what Finn is giving to her right now, and Liz feels so do her kids. They dip their feet in the pool. Liz jokes she can’t believe she got thee Jason Morgan to take off his shoes. He coyly asks her not to tell anyone.

Liz says she wants to support Finn through his grief, but Jason says Finn is pushing her away. She asks Jason how he knew to find her at Finn’s. That’s when he reveals, their son, Jake was worried about her, so it was Jake who reached out to him.


Next, Liz thanks Jason for being here for him, listening to her and extolling some advice.  Jason says he knows he is no place to be giving advice because he left her and Sam to raise his sons all on their own.

However, Liz points out it’s not because he didn’t want to be there. On that note, she’s pretty sure he wasn’t on vacation all the years he was away from his children. Jason says he’s here now and he will do whatever he can to make things up to Jake. Liz says just showing up to help her will go a long way with Jake, as it also goes along way with her.

You can watch the heartfelt scenes between Rebecca Herbst and Steve Burton below. Liason has been trending this evening on X.  Should GH consider putting Elizabeth and Jason back together? Weigh-in via the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Gregory’s Loved Ones Gather to Say Goodbye

On the Wednesday, June 7th episode of General Hospital, it was time for Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) memorial, which as Gregory wanted would be having his ashes spread with his loved ones in attendance.

The memorial service was held at the park bench in which he used to sit and read to Violet (Jophielle Love), which now has a plaque with his name imprinted on it.

Chase (Josh Swickard) was put in charge of the gathering, by his late father. In very well-written scenes, each of the man’s loved ones and friends extolled words of wisdom they learned from him that will forever remain with them and in their hearts.


Finn (Michael Easton) shares how much his dad, who was suffering from ALS, loved this spot and that when the climb up the hill became too much, he insisted he could make it on his own. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) speaks to what a good man that Gregory was. Violet reads a poem.

Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) opens up about how ALS is a devastating disease that takes resolve to handle, and Gregory had a lot of resolve. He made her aware of the limitations she put on her own life. She admits Gregory got her to jump out of a plane with him and that the two passionately kissed, which surprised everyone in attendance.

Tracy (Jane Elliot) talks with sadness about Gregory being a missed opportunity, and if she had known him sooner, longer and better, who knows what might have been. In the moral to her time with Gregory, Tracy expressed, “If an opportunity doesn’t present itself, make one. Contrary to conventional wisdom, you can miss what you didn’t have.”

Chase spoke last and says his dad taught him to find something remarkable in every person you meet. Next, Chase begins to scatter Gregory’s ashes around the tree, and then hands the container to Finn, so he can spread the last part of the ashes.


Afterwards, Tracy hosts a reception at the Metro Court. She and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) share a shot for Gregory. Alexis tells Finn, she is heading to an AA meeting, but first they discuss the kiss with his dad. Elizabeth and her boys make their exit, and then Chase goes looking for Finn and finds him at the bar. What he sees upsets him, as Finn is knocking back shots one after the other.

What did you think about Gregory’s memorial service? Did you reach for the hankies? What do you think will happen next to Finn now that he is continuing to drink? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Nicole Has Long-Awaited Showdown With Sloan as Carlivati Writing Regime Episodes Begin Again

On the Friday, May 31st episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati promised a nod to the audience that the script they are watching came from his writing team, their first, since the writers strike.

At the beginning of today’s show, one of Carlivati’s favorite muses, Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), is sitting with his laptop saying how bad The Spectator’s writing has gotten, expressing, “No offense Everett, but the quality of the writing has really gone down hill the last couple of months. But that is about to change starting today.”

With that, the viewers finally get the long-awaited confrontation between Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sloan (Jessica Serfaty), which seemed, at first, a bit odd that Sloan snuck into the DiMera mansion to confront Nicole in the first place, when she should be on the run.


Sloan tells Nicole there’s something she has to hear. Nicole starts to call Rafe (Galen Gering) to lock her up, but Sloan stops her. She swears to Nicole she didn’t plan to kidnap Jude. Dimitri showed up with him just as she was running out of options after her adoption fell through with Eric.  “It felt like fate,” Sloan says. “I’ll show you fate,” Nicole shouts and punches Sloan’s lights out.

Nicole is mortified of what Sloan put her through and the lengths of her lies and deceit. That’s when Sloan reminds Nicole she did the exact same thing to Sami (Alison Sweeney) years ago. So, she goes on to say, because of how she stole a baby from its birth mother, maybe she can show her some grace. Nicole shouts, “Never!”

Sloan starts to make her exit as Nicole is calling the cops, and just as Sloan makes it to the doorway, Eric (Greg Vaughan) shows up. Will she tell Eric he is the biological father of baby Jude before EJ (Dan Feuerriegel)​​ returns home?

Meanwhile, outside the Brady Pub, EJ runs into Leo and Leo is on to him. He realizes something is up with Sloan and baby Jude and EJ’s part in any cover-up just as Rafe arrests Melinda  (Tina Huang) for seemingly her part of hatching the baby switch plot.


Elsewhere, Bobby (Blake Berris) has control of Everett right in front of Jada (Elia Cantu), Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), who shows up to help him. It’s now defined to everyone that Bobby is an alter that is protecting Everett from finding out something terrible that happened to him, which caused his split personality.

So, what did you think of the Nicole/Sloan baby switch showdown? Underwhelming? Great? What did you think of the first show back from the regular DAYS writing regime? Do you like how things moved? Do you not like the direction? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
