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.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Devon and Hilary? How many hankies did you need to go through to get through the episode? Comment below.

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!”

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.

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,… Read more »

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… Read more »

Alan
Guest

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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
Guest
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.

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)

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

Photo: ABC

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
