THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Heartbreaking Hevon Wedding

Courtesy/CBS

If you missed Thursday’s episode of The Young and the Restless you missed quite the ensemble performance from the cast of the top-rated soap, but none more so than that of Mishael Morgan (Hilary).  Look for more about her performances in a major post to come.

Finally, Hevon fans got their wish, sort of.  The long-awaited Devon (Bryton James) and Hilary wedding finally happened, only this was on her death bed in the hospital.

However, the episode started with a nightmare sequence for Hilary; as she envisions her wedding at the penthouse with Devon in her wedding dress, but the minister starts reciting a funeral service ceremony instead of what you would hear at someone’s nuptials.  Hilary objects to what he is reciting saying it is not her time to die.  Now back to the present, Phyllis shows up, and how good is Gina Tognoni in these scenes as her maid of honor! (Trying to fight back the tears and help her friend through her final hours.) . The two discuss that this is going to be a beautiful wedding day for Hilary, and that Hilary will not fill it with regrets.

At Hamilton-Winters, Lily (Christel Khalil) sends Cane (Daniel Goddard) ahead to the wedding, as she is completely rocked to her core with guilt over the accident that is claiming Hilary’s life.  Once alone, she breaks down in tears.

An overcome Nate (Brooks Darnell) checks on Hilary before the wedding, and she thanks him for saving her enough to give Devon this day.

Then, in another touching moment, Neil (Kristoff St. John) comes to see Hilary and the two talk about the ups and downs of their stormy relationship.  Neil says he hopes that they can now be friends, and that they are part of the same family from now on.  Neil and Hilary finally have closure, and in tears, she says this is the best present he could have given her.

Next, Shauna (Camryn Hamm), Mariah (Camryn Grimes), Mattie (Lexie Stevenson) and Phyllis gather for the “something borrowed, something blue,” wedding tradition for the bride.  Things take a turn when Mariah is asked to stay in the room with Hilary.  Once alone. Hilary starts to say that Mariah will have to do their show alone, and Mariah is confused.  Next, Hilary passes out.

Cane goes back to Hamilton-Winters and finds Lily weeping there. She says she cannot go to the wedding.  He asks her if she can go and be there for Devon; since all Devon wants to have is a long-lasting memory of the moment with Hilary.

At the hospital, Nate tells Devon that Hilary’s condition is deteriorating.  Next thing we know, Hilary is now in her wedding dress in her hospital bed with family and friends surrounding her.  Neil reads a poem and Hevon exchange vows, which are heartbreaking.  Struggling through, the duo say their vows as Devon slips the wedding ring on Hilary’s finger, pledging his eternal love. Next, Hilary puts a ring on Devon’s finger, with what could be her last words: “It is a circle without beginning or end. ” Hevon becomes husband and wife.

Mishael Morgan is a powerhouse performer. These are the “stories” that I would rather see, not a mask reveal!
Not sure I will be able to stomach “The Mariah Hour!”

Soaphound

But you must admit, Dmr, the HILARY HOUR is unpredictable. It airs at any given time or place, guests can be lucid or not, and they never seem to get sued! Quite an accomplishment. One more bad thing about losing Marvelous Mishael: another Lily-centered story is imminent. I’ll get my FF button ready.

Yup, FF ready! UGH!

I have been thinking the same thing, that not only are we losing this lady who I didn’t realize was such an incredible actress until this week (I seem to always miss the most important stuff!), but oh NO, this is just going to be All Lily, All The Time.
Wait – I have an idea based on that last thought! Instead of the Mariah Hour, get NICK and Lily to team up and have The Self-Righteous Hour! Or the “How To Better Than Everyone Around [but just kidding, because we already are!” hour 🙂 Ugh! Lily causing that wreck, It’s been making me grind my teeth down to nubs all week. Glad to see it is OK to not fawn all over her here and I also apologize for jumping in, I was just so enjoying the comments.
I haven’t gone past Hevon toasting with their new wedding glasses. I just can’t make myself do it. I had no hankies, but i cried a lot – some of it was my real life stuff, but this has been handled beautifully so far. Y&R might be back in my good graces again – –

Why would they kill off Hillary?? very stupid move … now she can’t come back. They should have had her disappear like Chloe did, so this way she could come back later……

How many hankies did I need to get through the episode? Zero.

I didn’t buy for a second all those people Hilary had wronged over the years going in en masse and making up with her (particularly since Hilary wronged them in the first place). People don’t do that; people hold grudges. It would’ve been more believable for someone to not forgive her and then wrestle with regret later.

I don’t care what the circumstances were, I thought it was tacky how they spoke in their vows about how they loved each other from the moment they first saw each other in front of Neil, who Hilary cheated on with his own son when Neil was blind. So gross.

The last soap death to really move me was Nash’s death on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. The writing for that story was stellar, the performances were heartbreaking, and Nash’s death had ripple effects that generated story for years.

some people do get forgiveness for their wrong doings it is called making amends. don’t be such a wet blanket it is the soap world anything can happen

Alan

Not being a wet blanket, just asking the show to attempt some layered storytelling and present people who are flawed. Grudges are a part of life and have generated some of daytime’s best storylines. Today’s soap scribes seem to find it easier to have the characters let things go of things that no sane person would ever forget (like Nick forgiving Sharon for burning down the ranch, letting him and her kids think she was dead when she hid out in New Mexico to beat the rap for Skye Lockhart’s death, dumping him in favor of Adam who stole Faith at birth and let them think she was dead, changing Summer’s paternity results, and lying to him about Christian) rather than use those grudges to tell character based stories instead of plot driven ones.

Donna

Sounds like you think you might be able to do a better job writing the stories. Maybe you should submit your manuscript!

Vail

She was leaving the show. I like getting to say goodbye this way. It felt good, it’s frankly more sad than if she were hated by everyone which would suck for fans of MM…. i think we can cut them some slack for a good-bye. AND this is going to be or should be reigning hell down on Lily when Devon finds out his baby is gone, his wife is *dead* because his sister was not looking at the road – not only was Lily being hateful in that moment, she was reckless and she killed them. I want Devon mad. THAT is when the layers and facets should come in!! Little Mrs Perfect. Ended two lives, if she gets a pass, then I will be livid!

Vail

It was beautiful and real because these people have worked together for all this time, so in that way the tears are real, we will miss her and they will miss working with her, and dang it, Devon is losing his soulmate. Hil can of course be forgiven and forgiving. She came to town with an agenda, yes. That was dealt with though. Cain for one has lost so much moral ground, he had better have the ability to forgive, and I for one think he and Hillary did have a bond through Sam. I agree, it doesn’t all have to be super logical and such, it’s not a documentary 🙂 Lovely storytelling, lovely acting, I want Hillary’s dress! 🙂 I Googled it and ended up here, so if anyone knows anything about it, please share!

It brought tears to an old hardass like me. A very emotional episode. Mishael and her spunky character will be missed

When they said their vows, they could have at least said a little aside to Neil, something like “sorry dad, we were so blinded by our love, but what the hell, you couldn’t see anyway, so thought it would get by”. I could say a lot more, but, but a lot of people would be pissed or offended.

Soaphound
Soaphound

That’s a good laugh, Violet. Their behavior during Neil’s blindness was reprehensible! I guess soaps do give us good lessons in forgiveness. But I felt more sorry for us viewers’ loss of a wonderful actress than for deadbeat Devon. And now Lily front and center again? She’s like Lulu on GH…she just keeps popping up where you don’t need her.

Vail

LOL Pretty sure that was dealt with a while back 🙂 Why do you think you have things that would cause us to be “pissed or offended”? It’s just your opinion, not a new law or something.

This whole week has been sad. The last time a story on the show got me worked up was when Delia died. They all did a great job with this story. Hope recognition is passed around when it comes time for awards to be given out.

0ohh lawdy! That was sappy crappy haa!
It was gigantic confession booth and totally Not Hilary.

I forgive you do you forgive me snivel.
the death was poorly done, unreal.
No tears here, it was quite an overkill of a unbelievable junky stuff and I had need to FF through half of it.. It was like watching a body snatchers episode.

They did Hilary wrong, very wrong- shame one them for creating a pile of BS..

Anyways now, onto 4 months of watching Lily falling apart, sigh.
(it just was not right, not right= phony)

Soaphound

Exactly, su000. There were so many better ways to write Hilary out. Days and days of Devon crying (and trying to) while Cane tries to cover up for Lily (great moral lesson to teach Charlie) as I start sweating the arrival of LILY CENTRAL…the new “plot”.
It’s gonna be a true “dog days” August.

You know what I am over? Faux “Boycotts”. That used to mean something real. Like boycotting a restaurant because they wouldn’t let people of color sit in certain places. An actress decides to leave a soap, that is her choice! She chose to leave and filmed her last stuff a while ago. Not watching only makes soaps go bye bye and we only have 4 left! On three networks!
Save boycotting for something way more important – did she leave b/c of unfair treatment? Not that I heard of.

GramS

I laugh at the so-called regulars on this board who are so wrapped up in their own sense of how well they adjucate a show rather than how good the show is. They are so wrapped up in their own importance they fail to see and acknowledge how exceptional the closure was for both fans and foes and you have obviously have never experienced how forgiveness can happen for the unforgivable. The writers excelled at sending this larger than life character on her next journey while at the same time showcasing what an extraordinary talent the actor was. Thanks Mishael and RIP Hilary Curtis Hamilton.

Iakovos

I agree GramS. It was a touching sequence, classic soap opera, even the injured Hilary looked radiant as thought she was not hurt at all. Daytime allows us these emotional rides and I love it. I will miss Miss Morgan and Hilary. She was so watchable and interesting and the character was classic good girl who just went about things the wrong way. I applaud too the writing of death into the story. Seems now we are afraid of it or have to always leave door open for resurrection, often in most preposterous ways. good job Y&R but I would rather we kept Miss Morgan on contract and Hilary among the living.

Violet Lemm

GramS, I do understand why you are chastising some of us , but I still maintain that while it was all supposed to be sad, but beautiful, the writer could have shown some sensitivity, when it came to Neil’s character. This man was back stabbed and cuckolded by his wife and son, while being blind yet! He couldn’t even fight back, and yet he was made to stand there and listen to the sweet little speeches from those two people about how much they loved each other, at first sight. I’m not going to speak about forgiveness, which is a very personal thing. I just thought a little more thought by the writer or story editor, might have made that scene a little easier to watch.

GramS

I would absolutely agree with you if Neil had not expressed to Hilary how he had come to terms with it. Let’s face it, if she had lived the one on one talks with her would have been very different. Neil did forgive, that’s who he is and I believe he was sincere. He was the first of his family to understand why Hilary was how she was and forgave her then. This last segment was to showcase the person behind the mask and to honour the love she and Devon shared.

Cliched, plot-driven and unnecessary – Hilary wasn’t a legacy character in the least, yet so much time was wasted to show her demise.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.

GH’s Genie Francis Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This past Monday’s episode of General Hospital was one of the series best installmnets in recent months filled with long awaited confrontations and reveals.

The cast at the epicenter of it which included the talents of: James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Cynthia Watros (Nina), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava) all had stellar moments.

Courtesy/ABC

However, there is nothing like getting to see the icon herself, Genie Francis (Laura), do what she does best; the momma bear who is at once shocked and overjoyed that the son she grieved for over three years was very much alive, and the flip side of the anger over the fact that he let her, his sister, and most importantly his son, Spencer, continue to believe that he was dead, all for his vendetta and quest for revenge against Valentin Cassadine.

For it was Valentin who was the man who shot him and now is no longer the heir apparent to the Cassadine throne, now that the codicil said that it all belongs to Nikolas and Valentin was Helena’s son, not Mikkos’.

The thing of it is, everyone is great when Francis does her performances, and you could see that in the work of soap newcomer, Coloma, who you could just see through his eyes the disappointment and despair he caused his mother all these years, by Francis’ mesmerizing delivery.

Beat after beat in that episode, Genie brought the fire, the sorrow, and the wisdom, as Laura to every moment.  It was also well-written that Laura did not just have a happy reunion with her son, but a complex one fraught with issues to be ironed out.

Then, in the punctuation of that episode, was there anything better than watching Laura’s jaw-drop when Ava struts in telling Nikolas it’s time to tie-the-knot?

That is why Michael Fairman TV names Genie Francis “The Power Performance of the Week”.

Let us know in the comment section below, if you enjoyed Genie’s performances as much as we did.

THE BACHELOR: Hannah Brown and Hannah Ann Rock Peter’s World In Season Premiere

Peter Webber, “The Bachelor”, seems to have a penchant for former beauty pageant queens from the south named “Hannah”.  In the three hour season premiere of the reality-competition 24th season, the first impression rose went to Tennessee-native Hannah Ann Sluss, who interrupted Weber three times while he was getting to know the other female contestants, and apparently it didn’t bother Weber, who felt their feelings on shared family values, was part of the reason to give her the key rose of the premiere, which automatically makes her a frontrunner.

But hold your horses, Hannah Brown returns, not once, but twice, in the episode to help Peter’s journey kick-off to finding love, only, the thing of it is, she dumped him on her season of “The Bachelorette” and as viewers learned later in the episode, she may still want a chance with the guy!

Photo: ABC

This season premiere was set-up differently, when it opened with a scene from the final rose ceremony, where Peter receives some key intel from host and EP Chris Harrison, which sends him reeling.  We don’t know if Peter ever makes it back out of the hotel room and heads back to propose to someone, or the whole thing goes up in flames, or if Hannah Brown has a message or a shock for Weber that she relates to Harrison.  Everyone is trying to guess just what this ending could be that has been teased as “different than anything anyone has ever seen” on the series.

PASSIONS Reunion Documentary To Screen At Universal Studios For One-Night Only

Between plenty of references and obstacle courses (designed to incorporate and have many double entendres on Peter’s professional life as an airline pilot), and the windmills where Hannah Brown and Peter were revealed to have had sex multiple times during  her season of “The Bachelorette”, the series also had a contestant named Kelley, who rubbed all the women the wrong way, cheating her way to win the obstacle course for a ride in the sky with Peter solo.  Thing of it is, we learn that Kelley and Peter met previously before filming the ABC reality-competition series, and at the same hotel they were at for filming in Westlake Village, California.

The end of the three hours provided plenty of sparks, and a major cliffhanger when Hannah Brown and Peter end up behind the scenes and the two have an emotional exchange, when Peter is confused by Hannah’s feelings that she regrets choosing Jed and Tyler over him.  Peter admits he was hurt, add that to the fact that if she questioned her choice why she didn’t reach out to him, to which Hannah replied: “I didn’t know if you wanted to get past it.  I thought you wanted to be the Bachelor.”

Peter asks Hannah if she would consider joining the other women in the house and be in his season for finding love.  We don’t know what her answer will be as the show chyroned “To Be Continued” across the screen, leaving Peter in tears and Hannah B. with tons of mascara running down her face.
