THIS IS US Season 3 Finale: The Final Minutes Flash-Forward Stunner

Courtesy/NBC

On this week’s This Is Us season finale, plenty of emotional scenes, beautifully crafted and that key flash-forward in the final four minutes that has everyone talking are the order of the day for any fan of the popular NBC drama series.

One note: is that a series regular will not be returning for the show’s upcoming season four now that Zoe and Kevin’s (Justin Hartley) break-up is official, meaning actress Melanie Liburd will not be back.  The sticking point to their relationship was that Kevin wanted to have children some day, something Zoe says she never wants.  And, as we later see in the flash-forward that closes out the season, Kevin indeed has a son!  But, who will turn out to be the boy’s mother?  We also see an  elderly and sick Rebecca (Mandy Moore), who has none other than Nicky (Griffin Dunne)) sitting by her bedside. Wait! Do they end up together?  Does Rebecca fall in love with Jack’s (Milo Ventimigilia) brother? Where was Miquel?

As with all major episode of this series, those flash-forward’s leave the viewers with more questions than answers, which is exactly how the EP’s of the show want to leave you while you ponder and anticipate the new season in the fall.

Other key story points for the “Big Three” that resolve in the finale. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Randall’s (Sterling K. Brown) ‘love on the rocks’ gets sorted out.  When after Deja’s speech to Randall about him winning the lottery twice … being adopted by the Pearsons and marrying Beth .. he decides he will resign from political office.  But Beth has other idea and also is having a change of heart – she will have her dance studio and they will move so they can be closer to Philadelphia and work all this out,  She expresses: “We don’t work when we’re apart, but together, baby, we set the world on fire.”

Meanwhile premature baby, Jack is going home with Toby (Chris Sullivan) and Kate (Chrissy Metz), while Rebecca and Kate patch up their communication though Kate’s admitted feelings of inadequacy when trying to live up to her mother.  Rebecca will live near by the couple to help Kate with her son.

In addition, the answer to “Who is Her?” was revealed as it turned out to be Rebecca in a hospital bed at Kevin’s house, in an altered mental state.  Did Rebecca develop Alzheimer’s … or have another brain disorder … or become catatonic ?  When Randall walks in the room he says: “It’s Randall. Your son, Randall.”  Rebecca just stares.

We also see in the flash-forward that Toby may be estranged from his son, Jack and his wife, Kate.  When he was speaking to Randall on the phone he had no wedding band on, or wife beside him in the bed.  Where is Kate?

Touching performances, great writing, and leaving us with major cliffhangers, looks like This Is Us, one again, delivered an episode that will have everyone talking for months to come.

I absolutely love this program. It never disappoints. I am so thrilled that Randall and Beth didn’t split up. I loved when Deja gave her speech to Randall. Bravo to Lyric Ross who was excellent in that scene. It was great seeing Baby Jack going home. I was really worried about him. Even better than home coming, Toby mentions him in the future. He survives. Seeing Nicky was the big surprise for me. What does that mean?

As always, my sincere thanks to the entire cast and crew for another superb season. I cannot wait for MORE next season.

Love THIS IS US. I never miss it. It will be a long wait for the new season. Thank God for on demand. I can still get my “fix”. Love all of these characters and appreciate there are still family viewing options. Makes me reminisce about times in our own lives raising the kids and the ups and downs of life. You do it together. Very rewarding program. As a family going on 49 years, This is Us is very true to life and totally relatable.

‘Dynasty’ Reveals Its Recast For Nicollete Sheridan As Alexis Carrington In Cliffhanger Moment

Talk about a major soapy twist the reminds of some of the best and outrageous classics of the genre!  Friday’s episode of Dynasty offered up a shocker in an episode aptly titled and an oh-so clever one at that, “How Two-Faced Can You Get?”  And, as you watch the installment unfold, you think the “two-faced” in the title is about Fallon (Elizabeth Gilles) and Kirby’s (Maddison Brown) friendship when it comes to a certain man, but that was just the appetizer.

This episode served to reveal who is the replacement for Nicollette Sheridan in the key role of Alexis Carrington.  As viewers know, Sheridan announced her departure from the series to attend to personal family matters.  Dynasty fans last saw Sheridan on the March 22nd episode of the series.

SPOILERS BELOW IF YOU PLAN TO WATCH THE EPISODE BEFORE READING

In story, Adam (Sam Underwood) who is seriously psycho and hell-bent on major revenge has a face-off with his mother, Alexis (then played by Sheridan).  He confronts her and knows she fudged DNA evidence to make it look as if Hank was her true biological son.   Adam walked in on his mother burning the evidence of fake DNA test and interrupts her in the process.  After being caught, she fessed up to what she did … saying she did it all, because she was desperate to get her family back,

Next, Adam tells her to burn the rest of the evidence, and while her back is turned and as she is kneeling in front of the fireplace, Adam pushes her face into the fire.  And that sets the stage for the reveal of the new actress set to play Alexis, since Alexis has to undergo extensive plastic surgery to heal her burns,   We also note on that episode that Adam poisoned his “other” mother with a fatal overdose of her medication, and apparently that mom was a drug addict.

Now on to the final moments of the just aired Friday episode.  We cut to a scene where in the hospital, the bandages are being removed from Alexis’ face.  And we see her exclaim how youthful she looks!  Then, Adam comes by with flowers for his mother, saying he wants to see how she looks.  When she turns around it is revealed that the part is now being played by Elizabeth Gilles who also plays Fallon!  Adam looks very happy!  How twisted!  Looks like these two plotted together to bring down the Carringtons; by changing Alexis’ face to Fallon’s? Stay tuned.

Gilles took to her Twitter account on Saturday and asked the fans, “How’d we feel about last night’s ?”

So, what do you think of  Elizabeth Gilles as the new Alexis, now that it looks like Fallon will have a doppelgänger? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Flo Is The Daughter Of Storm Logan! What Did You Think Of The Twist?

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, the paternity of Flo (Katrina Bowden) was revealed.  While it seemed like it would turn out to be that Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) fathered another child, that would not be the case.  And, Bill was certainly the most relieved, as was Wyatt (Darin Brooks), because if that were to be true then his ex-flame would have turned out to be his sister!

When Bill read the DNA results after asking Wyatt, while in his office, to bring up the information (interesting that they should have such access). Bill saw the DNA match was the late Storm Logan, complete with photo of GH’s William deVry (Julian) who played Storm on B&B from 2006-2008.  The CBS daytime drama juxtaposed Flo’s paternity with the Logan sisters: Katie (Heather Tom), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis) reminiscing about their brother, and the gift Storm gave Katie after he took his own life …  for Katie would not be alive if it were not for the heart transplant she received with Storm’s heart.

Now it was all about breaking the news to a guilt-ridden Flo, who is constantly in the orbit of grieving mother Hope (Annika Noelle).  While at Forrester, Flo wants to tell Hope she is not the good person she thinks she is.  It is clear Flo wants to come clean about her part and knowledge of the baby switch; which has sent Hope’s baby Beth into the arms of Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes) to raise her.  Hope is still unaware that her baby is alive, which is all she talks about to Flo and the connection and bond they have.

So, as timing would have it, while Hope and Flo are having a heart-to-heart, in bursts Shauna (Denise Richards), Bill, Wyatt, and Quinn (Rena Sofer).  They tell Flo they have big news and that Hope will want to hear it, too.  Shauna tells her daughter that this wonderful man, Storm Logan. is her biological father.

Wouldn’t you know?  That makes Hope and Flo cousins.  Hope thinks that is what Flo was trying to tell her.  Little does she know that her cousin is a conspirator in taking her baby.

So, what did you think of the paternity twist? Did you expect Flo to turn about to be the newest Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful, or do you think there is a twist on a twist coming and this will turn out not to be the case?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will Learns He Has A Brain Tumor; What Next For WilSon?

On Days of our Lives, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) have been through the wringer.  Just like any power couple in “soapdom” they are constantly pulled apart by circumstances that drives distance between them, or prevents them from being happily reunited.  But then, isn’t that was soaps are all about … or, do these boys deserve a bit of peace and quiet?

On Wednesday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama series, Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) drop the bomb on WilSon.  Sadly, Will has a small brain tumor, although believed to be benign, it is is in a section of his frontal lobe that makes it most likely inoperable.

Will asks if that explains his headaches and why he has been passing out, and Rex confirms that is the cause.  He also says the tumor is likely benign, because the larger ones are usually cancerous.  The next step is to do a biopsy.  Rex advises Will to not exercise, drive, work, and to avoid stress right now.

Later at the Kiriakis mansion, Will Google’s brain tumor’s on the internet and is emotionally overcome with what it says.  In tears and looking very sad, Sonny comes on to the scene to comfort Will, but Sonny is looking concerned himself, trying to put on a brave front for Will.  Then, Sonny and Will admit they are frightened for what’s ahead, but Sonny says they must try to stay positive.  Will cries.

These scenes were nicely played by Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, who always bring it in their scenes.

Look for more drama ahead for the duo and their on-screen families as Will deals with this new health crisis.

So, what does Will’s tumor mean for the future of WilSon?  What do you think will happen next? Are you upset that Will has this diagnosis? Do you want the duo to finally have some down time from all the drama, especially after getting Leo Stark (Greg Rikart) out of their lives?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
