Tonight on NBC’s hit drama, This Is Us, don’t miss Justin Hartley’s directorial debut on the series.  The former soap star, who has become an even bigger household name since landing the pivotal role of Kevin Pearson, has become quite the talent behind-the-camera, too.   Justin had previously directed an episode of the series Smallville in which he was also part of the cast.

Hartley directs the episode entitled “A Hell of a Week: Part Three” which features Kate’s (Chrissy Metz) drama at its epicenter, and concludes the latest Big Three trilogy of recent installments of the show.

In an interview with The Wrap, Hartley said of the episode in which he helms that Kate’s teenage troubled relationship with Marc comes more to light and how it impacted her as an adult woman in her relationship with Toby citing: “As far as the teenage storyline goes, there’s a massive through-line between her relationship with Marc (Austin Abrams) and how she handles her life in the present day with Toby (Chris Sullivan).”  Justin added: “These people that come and go in our lives, the relationships that come and go, they leave lingering things with us and they shape us and they form these habits or these sort of personalities that we become and we evolve into throughout our life. And that shapes the decisions that we make. Also, the relationship that she has with Toby and the relationship that she has with Marc, the differences and similarities, and the danger that goes along with that. The pushing and the pulling, the togetherness and separation.”

The creator of This Is Us, Dan Fogelman tweeted on Tuesday: “So not only is @justinhartley a 6’4 hunk who is legit funny (didn’t know they made funny in his size)… turns out he’s also a hell of a director. What a bastard. You’ll see tonight.”

Meanwhile, Justin’s This Is Us co-star and on-screen sister, Chrissy Metz shared: Directed by our guy, @justinhartley and the last of our Big Three trilogy, tonight’s all new nbc This Is Us is really something special. Can’t wait to hear what you all think.”

Harley himself shared on social media:I had the honor of directing tonight’s episode. This crew is truly incredible. Can’t wait for you to see.”

You’re Invited to the Nuptials of B&B’s Steffy Forrester and Dr. John Finnegan

Circle this Thursday August 5th and Friday August 6th for the highly-anticipated wedding of Steffy Forrester  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) to the man she loves, Finn (Tanner Novlan).

Now, what could go wrong at that ceremony? Well, this is The Bold and the Beautiful after all and there have been some pretty decisive break-ups at the altar if past history dictates the future.

 

However, the bombshell revelation on Monday evening was that longtime supervillain Sheila Carter is making her way back to the CBS Daytime drama series and will be revealed to be Finn’s biological mother marking the return of Kimberlin Brown to her soap-famous role.

To kick the wedding drama into high-gear, on Monday’s episode, Steffy and Finn showed their parents that were going to put their wedding announcement online, and when they did we cut to a mysterious computer monitor, where someone clicks on the incoming message from Forrester Creations – sees the wedding invitation – and said person focuses in on Finn.  Watch the clip below.

Now let us know, are you looking forward to Steffy and Finn’s wedding? Will they actually say their “I do’s”? Share your theories in the comment section.

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

THE BACHELORETTE: ‘Still To Come’ Promo Leaves Viewers Pondering with Its Editing

“A shocking arrival, tough decisions, emotional exits, and budding romances … don’t miss all this and more as The Bachelorette continues,” are the log lines the ABC reality-dating series foreshadows in its latest promo; as the back-half of its season is about to get underway.

After Monday’s night’s episode, this latest promo was revealed and for ‘Bachelor Nation’ some key moments where within it.  Problem is, you don’t know what is actually what, because the way the producers edit these, a reaction and a response could be from two different scenes or moments, and they are, of course, all out of order. That includes the narrative VO lines spoken by the contestants or ‘Bachelorette’ Katie Thurston, and how it may not match what you actually see play out when it airs within an episode.

So with all that, here is what was notable:

It appears that dad to a toddler, Michael A., will exit the show after receiving a heartbreaking Facetime call with his son, who says to him, “Maybe Daddy doesn’t want to see me”.  But does he leave?

Someone shows up at Katie’s door that she is very surprised to see – we are guessing it’s someone with some key intel to throw a wrench into one of Katie’s relationships.

Since late arrival Blake is seen speaking to his sister, one can assume he received one of the coveted ‘Hometown’ slots.

Favorite to win Katie’s heart, actor Greg Grippo, seems to get highly emotional and walks off the resort, that is followed by Katie seemingly following him angry.  But is she going after him, or talking to someone else?

Later, Katie announces she wants to just go home.  Did she exit the show ahead of schedule?  According to a report, this season of The Bachelorette wrapped one-week earlier than expected on Saturday, April 24.

So, take a look at the mega-promo below. Then let us know, who do you think will remain in the running for Katie’s heart towards the end of her journey … or is it another ‘Bachelor Nation’ bust, but this time for Katie?
