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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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
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.

Bart

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

GRADE: F!!!

BIG BROTHER Recap: Bye Bye Bayleigh

Another week, another eviction! In what was an (yet again) explosive episode, the drama reached new heights this season.

After the veto meeting, Bayleigh was upset because she had been wrongfully accused of being the hacker. She knew she was the target, but she was more upset by the blindside set by Angela who had promised her safety.  It was an awkward confrontation between her and Tyler as Bayleigh told him she had trusted him. Tyler didn’t say much, but provoked her by reminding her she’s up on the block and he was going to vote her out.

Bayleigh wasn’t the only one feeling all of the emotions.  Her close friend, and ally Haleigh who was the actual hacker, felt guilty Bayleigh was getting the blame for all of this.  She thought Bayleigh’s eviction could be because of the moves she made to target Tyler.  She was debating keeping quiet to save her game or keep her morals by opening up about the situation.  She ultimately went with telling the truth – first up was Bayleigh.  You could tell Bayleigh was upset over the news, but she understood why Haleigh took the move.

Haleigh wanted to clear Bayleigh’s name, and possibly save her from going home, so she decided to throw a house meeting to confess her “Big Brother” sins.  As she called everyone into the living room, she told them she was the hacker while calling out Tyler’s game in the process.  This sparked an argument between Tyler and Bayleigh which led to an explosive confrontation.  You can watch part of it below.

When it came time to vote, Haleigh unfortunately wasn’t able to save Bayleigh, even by cancelling Tyler’s vote. S he was evicted 6 to 1.  It was then time for another HOH competition, and everyone was determined to control the next week.  However, after eight rounds of putting together mashed-up hashtags with the correct photo, Haleigh came out with the win! (filed by Jake Updegraff -Big Brother Correspondent)

Who do you think she’ll nominate, and will the hacker hijack the nominations this week? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to tune-in on Sunday at 8/7c on CBS to find out what happens!

THE BACHELORETTE Season Finale: So Many Tears, So Many Meltdowns

There were plenty of waterworks on the season finale of The Bachelorette, that by the end of it Becca, Garrett, and Blake’s tear ducts were probably all dried out.  Meanwhile, from the look of the audience during the live three-hour season finale, they needed plenty of hankies too, which we then would assume “Bachelor Nation” faithfuls were wiping their eyes throughout the last installment of Becca’s journey,

It began when Becca took Garrett to meet her family.  And once in deep conversations with Becca’s sister, uncle, and mother, the once more light-hearted Garrett let the tears flow thinking about how he has waited to love again after his disastrous first marriage, and that Becca is his everything … tears were flowing everywhere as he shared his true emotional side.

Courtesy/ABC

However, when it was Blake’s turn to meet the family, he had a premonition that if he had followed he could have gotten out of the situation with some dignity.  But, Blake who professed he was so in love with Becca, got an important earful from her mother.  She asked, “How would you feel if she didn’t pick you, would you be okay?”  Next, Blake started to second-guess everything in his confessionals. “She’s gonna pick Garrett,” he muttered under his breath.

In between her final dates with the guys, and the moments with the family, Becca had her own meltdown where she knew she had to let one guy go, and that she felt like a “monster” for doing so, and even told her mother she never wanted to hurt anyone, as a tear streamed down her face.

Now as Becca is glammed up waiting for a proposal and to give out the final rose (set against the backdrop of Maldives and the Indian Ocean), it was revealed that Blake would be the first guy she would come to face-to-face with her, and we all know what that means … yup, he’s going home.

Sweating, Blake launches into his prepared proposal speech: “You’re the most sincere, honest, compassionate, goofy, funny, intelligent, truly genuinely beautiful person inside and out.  I’ve been waiting for this day and this moment for quite some time now.  Will you let me spend the rest of my life making you smile?”  Then he is crushed by what happens next.   Wait,” says Becca, who begins a muddled explanation of why she is not choosing him stating. “I think there’s a better fit for us out there.”

Courtesy/ABC

And so, begins Blake’s tear-filled meltdown.  He says, “How could I be so wrong?”  Then Becca tries to explain to him why she is choosing Garrett, but that only kicked a guy when he was down.  She explains for the longest time she really thought she would choose him, but that it prevented her from seeing any other potential guys and what they had to offer.  That made everything worse.  Blake walks off sobbing repeatedly into a towel, while Becca is crying and having trouble breathing. Then, in a hankie-inducing moment, Blake says to the camera: “I can’t believe I have to go through all this alone.”

Next up, Garrett proposes to Becca, she accepts, and finally gets to tell him how much she loves him. Throughout the competition, the comparison to her late father, was one of the driving forces to her decision to pick Garrett.

Courtesy/ABC

As revealed in a very uncomfortable moment in front of the live studio audience, Becca and Blake saw each other for the first time since his rejection on the series.  He wanted some answers from her, to which one of them stood out.  Becca noted that Blake had a penchant to get more in his head when issues come up, and it made her worry about how he would handle a serious situation; like a sick family member or child.  She added, “That’s when I just started to question the longevity of it.” (meaning their relationship).  Blake just wished her all the happiness, but never really asked her a follow-up question to that answer.

Courtesy/ABC

At the end when Becca and Garrett appeared for the first time as a couple on the live finale, the question of if the couple has faced any challenges and issues by host, Chris Harrison, which led to the discussion of Garrett’s social media activity that was part of a firestorm early on in the season when he showed a history of liking Instagram posts by politicians and pundits that mock Parkland high school students, liberal women, trans people and undocumented immigrants. Garrett and Becca said he know he made a mistake and is growing as person and left it at that.

So, what did you think of the season finale of The Bachelorette?  Did Becca choose the right guy? Comment below.

BIG BROTHER: The Biggest Blindside Of The Season … So Far

As we go into tonight’s episode of Big Brother, let’s catch up as where things left off on this past Thursday night, which gave viewers one explosive episode … and it was all live! With Brett and Rachel both up on the block, it was time for Level 6 to lose another member in their alliance.

As we saw in Wednesday’s episode, Rachel’s paranoia caused her alliance to question the loyalty she had for them. It seemed as if it would be an easy week for her considering Scottie, Haleigh, Faysal, and Rockstar were all voting to save her. All they needed were five votes, and they were sure that Angela, (Rachel’s BFF in the house), would vote to keep her. However, we saw her and the rest of the Level 6 members consider the idea of voting to keep Brett, the stronger competitor of the two, in the game. They just needed both JC and Sam’s vote to ensure Rachel was sent packing.

via GIPHY

Tyler continued to play both sides of the house as he pledged to Bayleigh that he will keep his commitment to her and vote to evict Brett. It was to America, in the diary room, that he told the truth; saying he would keep Bayleigh around until he flushed out her power app. Brett started to work on both Tyler and JC mentioning that an all-girl alliance rumor is floating around, and if true, could dominate all the men in the house since they’re outnumbered. Later, Tyler filled in Brett on Bayleigh’s power, and how it could affect their game.

When it was time for the live eviction, both houseguests gave their final plea, but it wasn’t until Brett said his that the drama unfolded. He made up a lie that Rachel was a ringleader of the female alliance, and he had told her about Bayleigh’s power app that could change the nominations next week. Rachel was seen in complete shock … shaking her head and mouthing that she did not say that. Host, Julie Chen told houseguests they can now cast their votes for the house. One by one they entered the diary room to anonymously vote out either; Brett or Rachel.

via GIPHY

The votes poured in, and unfortunately for Rachel, her time in the “Big Brother” came to an end. Julie revealed to Rachel that she had been evicted by a vote of 5 to 4. It was clear by her reaction that she had no idea this was coming. Immediately, she stormed out of the house on the verge of what looked like an emotional breakdown. During her exit interview, Julie revealed that her alliance, including Angela, voted to evict her. Stunned, disappointed, and visibly saddened, she was shown goodbye messages from the houseguests. The most explosive one came from her thought-to-be-BFF that really took Rachel off-guard. In the video message, Angela said, “Just a few bullet points to go over here. You talked yourself onto the block, you lied to my face and your stories don’t make sense. Our Final 2 deal is about as irrelevant as you were in week two.” The last statement referring to the time Rachel got the “least trending” in the second week of the season, based off of America’s favorites. It was clear this friendship is over and out!

With another power up for grabs, you can tell the houseguests were thirsty to win the HOT. This time they had to play a true or false competition. Contestants were eliminated each round if they guessed incorrectly. It eventually came down to Angela and Rockstar, but in the sudden death question, Angela came out with the win. With Level 6 safe, it looks like it’s time for The Hive to lose another member. (Filed by Jake Updegraf – Big Brother Correspondent)
