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!”

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.

What about the death of Mrs. Chanslo? Jeanie Cooper.that was sad because her death was real.

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

Violet Lemm

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
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.

The Young and the Restless need to pay their award winning actors and actresses more money to keep them on the show is over with there won’t be nobody around to keep us interested in the show any longer I do not like newcomers playing the part of somebody that left. It’s like being a scab when there is a union on strike

Devon and Hilory’s wedding was beautiful . The memorial Great C buzz show was a wonderful tribute.

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
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: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
