J.T. shows up at Jimmy’s to tell Mac about the hearing and shocks both Mac and Billy when he informs them that he won because Victoria never showed up. Meanwhile, Nikki and Victor are worried sick about Victoria’s whereabouts just as they get a call from her at the police station and Victoria tells them that she has been arrested for Adam’s murder. Victor tells Nikki that he know she didn’t kill Adam. Later, a cop gives Jill information on Victoria’s arrest and arraignment. Jana and Lauren try to reach Ryder and get him to help them but Daisy arrives and threatens Ryder who immediately backs down. Meanwhile, Sarah admits to Patty that she isn’t Lauren. Sarah tells Patty who she is and Patty realizes that Sarah was her nurse at the cosmetic surgery center in South America. Sarah thanks Patty for the idea to transform herself into Lauren. Later, Ryder refuses to help Daisy separate Lauren and Jana. Owen and Chance discuss the forensic evidence in Adam’s case and it becomes pretty clear that Victoria couldn’t have murdered Adam. Meanwhile, as Nick and Phyllis come out of the shower, post-love making he gets a call from Nikki telling him about Victoria’s arrest. Later, Michael starts to attack Chance and Owen but is caught off guard when they tell him that they can tie Victoria to the murder weapon. Before Sarah and Patty can get further into their discussion, Jack arrives home wanting answers. Patty manages to convince Jack that she needs more time with “Lauren” but Jack remains anxious to talk to her. Alone, Sarah suggests that they keep up the doctor patient pretense in case they need to help each other down the line. Later, Sarah tells Patty that she needs her help with Michael but the two women end up butting heads instead. After talking to Phyllis, Jack realizes that Emily could be faking her pregnancy. Jill prints a story online about Victoria’s arrest and moments later Billy reads the news. He calls Jill who tells him that she is going to the arraignment to twitter it and Billy tries to stop her but she is too thrilled with herself. Meanwhile, Mac offers to take care of Reed while J.T goes to look for Victoria. Later, Billy arrives at the courtroom and tries to drag Jill out just as Victoria’s arraignment is beginning and D.A. objects to Victoria being out on bail. Jack admits to Phyllis that he isn’t sure he is in love with “Emily” anymore. Meanwhile, Jana and Lauren continue to encourage Ryder to stand up for himself as Daisy calls Sarah to tell her what is going on. When the judge rules that Victoria’s bail is to be denied, Billy blurts out that Victoria couldn’t have killed Adam because she was with him.

As Chloe is following Jill’s twitters of Victoria’s arraignment, Mac and Reed arrive and Chloe fills Mac in but they both await news of what Billy said to the judge to stop Jill’s twitter fest. Meanwhile, the court is in an uproar and the judge asks Victoria if Billy’s claim is true but Victoria denies everything. Later, Victoria is hauled off but not before she admits to Victor that what Billy said was actually the truth. Nearby, Nikki pleads with J.T. to back down where Reed is concerned for Victoria’s sake but he refuses and Nick promises that J.T. is in for the fight of his life. Outside the courtroom, Jill realizes that Billy and Victoria were sleeping together just as J.T. arrives and the two come face to face. J.T. tells Billy to back off before J.T. gets arrested too, for assault. Billy turns on Jill then and fires her.

Tucker shows Kay footage from his office of Adam opening the sealed bids of Jabot and blackmails Kay into signing control of Jabot back over to him. Kay calls Nikki to tell Victor about Tucker’s blackmail and learns about Victoria’s arrest. After hanging up, Kay approaches Neil and Ashley who are having dinner nearby and tells them that she is turning control of Jabot back over to Tucker. Ashley attacks Tucker, demanding to know what game he is playing and after they depart Neil assures her that he is will find out what is really going on between Kay and Tucker. While discussing pregnancy Chloe implies to Mac that she and J.T. may be more than just friends. Billy arrives at the station with the Newman’s but Chance refuses to let Billy see Victoria and he gives Billy a hard time after Billy gave him a false statement. J.T. goes to see Victoria and realizes that Billy’s confession was true and that Victoria is covering for someone and he immediately assumes its Victor. J.T. tells her that he is grateful that he was granted full custody because she made her choice when she chose to be let herself get arrested for her family rather than give her alibi and go home to her son. Later, Billy gets in to see Victoria but she is furious with him and throws his gesture hard back in his face so Billy tells her that go to someone else the next time she needs help. Nikki and Nick continue to believe that Billy’s outburst was a lie as Victor keeps quiet about Victoria’s confession. Meanwhile, J.T. arrives at the Chancellor mansion and clues both Mac and Chloe in on Billy’s tryst with Victoria. Later, Billy runs into Heather at Jimmy’s and propositions her. At the station, Michael shows the Newman’s the pen that Adam was killed with. Tucker agrees to stop dismantling Chancellor when Kay gives him back Jabot just as Jill arrives to hear the news and tells Kay what a slap in the face it will be to both the Newman’s and the Abbots to hear this. Later, Billy decides to pass on a night with Heather. Nearby, Jill tries to make her unemployment status work for her with Kay but Kay dismisses her.

J.T. assures Reed that he and Mac will be there for him while Mommy is away. Meanwhile, Nick admits that the pen was a present for him from Victoria. Tucker asks Ashley to trust him where Jabot is concerned but she tells him that he has made that impossible. Jack traps Patty into going to see Phyllis’s OB/GYN tonight to find out the truth about the baby. Later, Patty lets her emotions get the better of her in front of Jack but is saved by an urgent call from Ashley. Jack has to leave giving Patty a reason to tear out of the house herself. Nick refuses to let Victoria lose her son and throw away her life protecting him, as Victoria, Victor and Michael all try to stop him, Nick confesses to Owen and Chance that the pen was his. Meanwhile, Daniel offers to help Phyllis out with Summer when she can’t get a hold of Nick. Later, Nick and Victor tell Owen and Chance the truth about their struggle with Adam and how blood got on Nick’s jacket but Owen isn’t sure to believe their story after all the lies they have told. Jack is blown away when Neil and Ashley tell him that Kay is giving back control of Jabot to Tucker without a fight. Meanwhile, Patty stalks around the tack house as Phyllis is inside doing chores. Later, Jack calls Victor to tell him what is going on with Kay. Nearby, Kay reminds Tucker that no matter what part of his empire he takes away from her the only thing he can’t take away from her is her friends and family and that is something knows nothing about. Patty arrives to confront Phyllis and Phyllis gets a first hand look at exactly what Jack was talking about when he said how much “Emily” has changed. At the G.C.A.C., Murphy stands up to Tucker, to everyone’s surprise, and tells him to stop blaming Kay for his miserable life. Later, Phyllis tells Patty about the doubts Jack is having regarding marrying her and Patty suddenly decides to play the sympathy card and starts yelling about her pregnancy and takes off. Phyllis calls Jack after Emily is gone to tell him about their encounter. Kay tells Murphy about Tucker’s blackmail and Tucker tries to spoil her in order to take her mind off what she has given up. Ashley and Neil go home together and finally make love.

Chance and Owen drop the charges against Victoria only to turn around and charge Nick with Adam’s murder. Meanwhile, Phyllis calls to check when “Emily” signed into the ranch. She is caught off guard to learn that she never did and wonders how she got onto the ranch without anyone seeing her. Victor calls moments later to tell her about Nick’s arrest. Later, Jack arrives home and Patty tells him that she lost the baby and Jack confronts her with the truth that she was never actually pregnant. Paul brings Heather to visit Emily, who barely registers who Heather is, but asks if Jack has figured out the truth yet. Meanwhile, Jack refuses to believe anymore of Patty’s lies, even as she tells a story of going to see Phyllis and Phyllis causing her miscarriage. Later, Patty tells Jack that she has a condition from childhood that made it difficult for her to conceive in the first place and that Phyllis is the one he should be blaming for interfering in their marriage. Jack isn’t sure if he can trust her and decides to take a walk. Michael stops by Gloria and Jeff’s to check on Fen and wonders what is going on with “Lauren” when he hears from Gloria that she hasn’t checked in Fen once all day. Meanwhile, Sarah works to familiarize herself with Lauren’s life. At the zoo, Jana’s headaches continue to get worse and Lauren tries to ease the pain by telling Jana to think back on time in her life that was happy as Jana remembers her wedding at the ashram. Later, Sarah buys an extravagant sports car in Lauren’s name. Emily asks Heather to help prove that she isn’t Patty. Emily gives Heather a cup she has been drinking out of and asks her to test the DNA. Later, Jack asks Paul to help him track down Emily’s younger brother. Meanwhile, Patty goes to see Emily and asks her to be her doctor again. Emily becomes concerned when Patty tells her that it may be time to teach Jack a lesson. Michael is not at all thrilled when Sarah tells him that she bought him a sports car to make up for the things she has done lately. Meanwhile, Jana and Lauren reminisce on the love they share with Michael and Kevin as Jana decides to try and make a psychic connection with Kevin by meditating on the word “zoo.” At the penthouse, Kevin, Gloria and Jeff use the Ouija board to try and find a clue to where Jana is and it spells out the word “zoo.” Later, Sarah tries to smooth things over with Michael but before she can she is thwarted by Fen wanting to spend time with her. As she is reading a book to Fen, a spider runs across the book and Sarah kills it, traumatizing Fen and Michael realizes that there is something truly off about his wife. Sarah realizes that she needs to get Michael on her side so she allows Lauren to call Michael herself. Meanwhile, Gloria tells Kevin that the clue is because Fen wanted Jeff to take him to the zoo and Kevin is disheartened once again. Later, while on the phone, Lauren tries to subtly tell Michael that he is being tricked. After Sarah and Daisy leave, Lauren tells Ryder that if he tells Michael the truth she will take care of him for the rest of his life. All alone, Jana tells Lauren that there is something really wrong with her head. Ryder and Daisy go to the coffeehouse but Daisy drags him out reminding him about their restraining orders just as Kevin gets a glimpse of Ryder. Meanwhile, Michael tells Sarah that he is moving in with Gloria because Fen doesn’t even feel safe around her anymore. Patty tries not to panic when Jack tells her that he called Emily’s brother and he is coming to town to visit.

Sharon arrives at the police station and Sharon and Phyllis are immediately at each other’s throats over Nick’s arrest. Meanwhile, Michael asks Nick for the whole truth regarding Adam the night of the explosion. Nick tells Michael everything that happened with Adam that night as Phyllis, Sharon and Victor look back on their own actions with regret. Later, Chance questions Sharon about how Nick’s jacket got out of tack house in the first place. Jack refuses to let Patty lie to him anymore, every chance he gives her to prove to him that she is telling him the truth about the baby she rejects. Jack hopes that seeing Jamie will help “Emily” get back to her old self but Patty refuses to stick around which only irritates Jack further. Later, Patty goes to see Emily for information on her brother. As Jana’s condition worsens, Sarah refuses to help her making it clear that Jana is expendable. Sarah taunts Lauren, telling her that everything is perfect at home with Michael and Lauren but when they are alone, Jana reminds Lauren that everything Sarah is saying is a lie and they need to find a way to escape. Later, Sarah grows impatient when Patty doesn’t show up for their meeting. Meanwhile, Emily tells Patty that Jamie is very refined, intellectual type that graduated with honors from school. However, when Jamie arrives at the Abbott mansion, it becomes quite clear that Emily is setting Patty up. Victor and Michael confront Owen, trying to rattle him to get him to drop the case against Nick but Owen walks away unfazed and Victor wonders just as confident Michael truly is that he can win. Meanwhile, Sharon and Phyllis visit Nick and the tension is palpable as Nick asks the two women to leave his case to Michael and take care of his children instead. As Jack starts to get to know Jamie to begins to wonder what kind of crazy family he married into. Meanwhile, Sarah suggests that Patty stay on her meds for both of their sakes. Lauren and Jana find a pile of old leaves and paper and decide to start a fire with a battery that Jana finds nearby, hoping it will catch someone’s attention nearby. Later, Jana manages to get a fire started and both Lauren and Jana pray someone will see and come looking for them. When Nick’s bail is denied Phyllis lets all her angered towards Sharon loose, blaming her for Adam and Nick’s situation. Later, Sarah asks Patty to help her kill Michael and Phyllis in order to get them out of the way to achieve their ultimate goals. Meanwhile, Victor announces that he is guilty of Adam’s murder in front of room full of witnesses.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Dancing with the Stars

‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justina Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julian’s Life Implodes As Bomb Explodes

Friday’s episode of General Hospital left viewers with an explosive ending, literally, that left fans on the edge of their seats of just what will be the ramifications for those inside and outside the Floating Rib, and on the docks of Port Charles.

At the epicenter of the story is William deVry (Julian Jerome), who delivered a top-notch and emotional heart-tugging performance within the hour installment of the ABC daytime drama series.

As it went down, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) wants Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) dead and has Julian doing his bidding; that includes Julian walking around with a bomb in a backpack. Renault meets Julian on the pier, and Julian lets the drug lord know that he will not target a restaurant full of people, since Jason is currently at the Floating Rib, playing pool with his son.  Cyrus tells Julian not to worry that the bomb will not be an issue until Jason is alone. He then hands Julian a burner phone to call him when the job is done.

As the two are talking, a drunken Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) stumbles upon the conversation, and that sets up what would have very well been the final scenes of the former couple known as “Julexis”.  When Alexis and Julian begin to talk, Julian shows his concern for her drinking, which she does not want to hear about.  Then in a key moment, Julian apologizes to Alexis for all the pain he has caused her.  It was in this line of dialogue, “Alexis, you have been such a positive light in my dark life” that viewers and possibly Alexis, felt the weight of what Julian was trying to convey, as he feared his life could be coming to an end, or feeling racked with guilt for the things he finds himself unable to extricate himself from.  Alexis wonders why he sounds like he’s saying goodbye to her.

Later, Julian shows up with the bomb at the Floating Rib as he flips through his phone and pictures of his children and loved ones knowing he must do what Renault has ordered to keep everyone safe.  He leaves the backpack with the bomb in it under a table.

At the Floating Rib, we have a major set up that could also lead to dire consequences.  Lulu (Emme Rylan) has summoned Dustin (Mark Lawson) to meet her at the bar to discuss the status of their relationship, now that Dante (Dominic Zamprigna) is back in town.  Dustin pulls out a ring and gets down on one knee to propose, just as Dante is outside the bar coming to talk to Lulu.

Meanwhile, Dev (Ashton Arbab) discovers the backpack and goes to tell the bartender about it.  In addition, Jason, Danny, Cameron (William Burton), and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Franco (Roger Howarth) are also there.

At  the end of the episode, Julian is back on the docks and pulls out the burner phone Cyrus gave him.  Julian says, “You better pick up”, but unknowingly when he hits Cyrus’ number, he sets off the bomb to explode in the bar.  Fade to black.

So, what will be the upshot of the bomb explosion?  Will Julian, in the midst of the turmoil, make it look like he perished in the explosion to facilitate William deVry’s exit?  Will something happen to Lulu, since we know Emme Rylan has exited the show as well?  Will everyone be saved?  Share your thoughts and theories and what you thought of Will’s performance via the comment section below.
