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.”

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn to be Featured in Alexis-Centric Episode to Mark Her Upcoming 25 Years on the ABC Daytime Drama

She is a two Daytime Emmy-winning actress, and one of the best that has ever graced the soap genre, and now General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) will have an episode devoted to her, and her soap opera alter-ego, next week on the ABC daytime drama series.

The episode has been scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 7th.

Grahn will celebrate her 25th anniversary with GH in September, but as the imminent milestone draws near, and with Alexis in story getting ready to begin a three-year stint in Pentonville, it sets up plenty of drama for the former legal eagle of Port Charles; who has had an enduring battle with booze.

 

According to Nancy, who spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, “I will say that she (Alexis) knows she can’t stop drinking unless she faces her life as it really is and not as she’s faked it thus far, and she is perhaps forcing a brutal bottom in order for her to rise again from the ashes.”

Viewers can look for Alexis to interact with many characters, plus a brand new character, and her on-screen daughters within the episode.

Grahn added to what fans will see, “I feel like this show is not so much about what Alexis discovers, but how that discovery and resolution will affect the heart of so many who watch it.  I feel that many will relate in a personal way.”

So, excited to see the Alexis-centric episode featuring Nancy? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Franco Have Planned For Peter … The Ultimate Revenge?

This week on General Hospital, the story picks back up on the night of the double-wedding debacle for Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).

Last week’s Friday cliffhanger saw Franco (Roger Howarth) taking a crowbar to Peter’s head and knocking him out after realizing the voice in his head was that of Peter’s.

Meanwhile, Maxie who is in the hospital trying to ensure the safety of her unborn baby with Peter, is getting an earful on how far his deception has gone, and from all the people she knows and trusts.  Now, Anna (Finola Hughes) comes to see her God-daughter in the latest promo from ABC.

But the twist that many may, or may not, have seen coming is that Franco has taken Peter and tied him up which looks eerily familiar from when Franco’s mind-mapping took place and he was turned into Drew.

With Franco’s growing brain tumor, what is he capable of doing to Peter? Will he exact the perfect revenge on the guy?

Watch the latest teaser below.

Now weigh-in: what do you think Franco will do next? Share your theories in the comment section.
