Jack rejects Diane when she strips down and attempts to lure him into supporting her and Kyle before she reveals Kyle’s true whereabouts. Diane is furious at Jack’s dismissive attitude and exclaims that Jack will never see Kyle again before storming out. Nick is outraged to learn that Diane sold revealing photos of Victor and Nikki in bed to the tabloid. Before he can set out to confront Diane, Victoria arrives with the bad news that Nikki is missing from rehab. When Diane receives a call from Nick, she rushes to meet him but is disappointed when Nick shows no compassion towards her. Nick insists he wants nothing more to do with Diane. Billy tries to reach out to Victoria when they both cross at the GCAC bar, but Victoria puts her guard up and reminds Billy that he was quiet dismissive to her just the other day. Billy does not fight Victoria’s resistance and simply sits down as he orders himself a drink. When Victor learns that Nikki is missing from her rehab center, he insists he will hop on the jet and find her at once. Michael reminds Victor that he was just released from jail and crossing state lines is not a good idea. Michael offers to go find Nikki. Tension flares as Phyllis interferes when Nick and Diane are fighting at Crimson Lights. Phyllis reminds Diane that she is violating the restraining order she filed against her and the cat fight ensues as Diane tears into Phyllis about her less than perfect past. Nick breaks up the cat fight and tells Diane to leave the people he cares about, including his family, alone. Jack confronts Billy at the GCAC bar about his growing dismissal of everyone around him, especially Victoria. Billy resists Jack’s suggestion to confront Victoria about their growing tension and instead orders yet another drink as Jack looks on in disapproval. Diane meets Ashley at Crimson Lights and confirms that she has Abby’s confession video in her possession, but attempts to bribe Ashley by insisting she can have it at a price. Ashley rejects her proposal, insisting that despite what Diane may think, nobody in Genoa City is intimidated by her threats. Diane flares, exclaiming that she did have sex with Tucker and it was very enjoyable. Ashley slaps Diane across the face before she can say any more.

Jack receives a call from Kyle but is having a hard time hearing him. Jack is shocked to learn that Kyle is in Switzerland and before he can find out Kyle’s exact location, the connection is lost. Michael moves to Diane quickly when she arrives while he is talking with Victor, insisting he will handle her. Michael pleads with Diane to leave town and offers to give her enough funds if she leaves Genoa City as soon as possible. When Michael starts to head back towards Victor, he stops in his tracks at the sight of Billy and Victor face to face. Victoria, Jack, and Abby are also tense at the sight of these two enraged men. Tempers flare as Victor bashes Billy for his vagrant ways, stepping towards Billy as they exchange heated words. Before everyone can stop them, Billy takes a swing at Victor, forcing Jack to grab him. Soon an officer arrives to break up the scuffle and escort Billy to the police station. Abby crosses paths with Adam later that night at the GCAC bar and is not at all amused with his small talk. Once Adam leaves with his sultry companion Elaine, Abby begins to drink heavily. A shadow rustles in the trees by the footbridge at the park. The moonlight reveals Diane’s lifeless body face down in the stream.

Murphy finds Diane’s lifeless body by the stream when he arrives to fish by the footbridge in the park. A frantic Murphy calls 911 to report that he has found Diane Newman dead in Town Park. Murphy then calls Kay to tell her of the horrible news. Adam begins to clean off the mud from his boots before heading out of his GCAC suite. He runs into Abby, who looks very disheveled after waking up from a black out induced slumber in the ladies bathroom with mud on her dress. Phyllis and Nick wake up entwined on the couch in the Restless Style office after spending the night together. Phyllis notices a scratch on Nick’s neck and suggests that perhaps she did it during the intense love making. As Phyllis looks down at her nails, she notices one is broken and most have dried dirt buried underneath. Phyllis quickly conceals them from Nick. Jack meets with Kay looking rather distressed and explains to Kay he had quiet a rough night. When Jack notices Adam, he excuses himself and approaches him, demanding to know where Diane sent Kyle away to. Kay receives a call from Murphy telling her that he found Diane’s body. Once off the phone, Kay moves to Jack and Adam to reveal the awful news of Diane’s death. Victor is attempting to leave town on his private jet when suddenly the cabin door opens to reveal two officers who have come to inform Victor that his bail prohibits leaving town. Despite Victor’s disapproval, he is arrested before being taking to GCPD. Jack is surprised to see Victoria at the police station and remembers that Billy was arrested. Jack tells Victoria of Diane’s death. Victoria is distraught when she learns that Jack was never able to find out where Diane sent Kyle in Switzerland. An officer brings Billy into the room and begins to thank Jack for posting bail, but Jack informs Billy that it was Victoria’s doing. Before Phyllis can head to the nail salon to repair her nails, a staffer arrives for work at Restless Style and informs Nick and Phyllis of Diane’s death. Victor arrives to the police station to find Jack talking with Spencer regarding the search for Kyle. Victor is subdued in his reaction when Jack tells him that Diane was found dead in Town Park. Ashley and Tucker worry that now that Diane’s dead, whatever dirt Diane had on Abby or anyone else close to her may not be kept a secret. After Adam throws away his muddy boots, Adam breaks into Diane’s GCAC suite in search of something. Adam appears to have no luck and moves out of the room just as the hotel manager is walking down the hall to let an officer into Diane’s suite.

Michael arrives to the police squad room demanding to know why Victor was rearrested. After learning that Victor attempted to leave town, Victor informs Michael that Diane was found dead in Town Park. Spencer adds that the M.E has ruled Diane’s death a homicide. Nina arrives back from LA and Jill learns she is distraught over not hearing from Chance. Murphy comforts the concerned women and tells them that sometimes no news is good news, having been a soldier himself. Nina tells Jill that she’s sure Kay knows someone high ranking in the military that could help track Chance down. Ashley confronts Tucker about Diane’s allegations that she and Tucker slept together. Tucker comes clean to Ashley and admits to sleeping with Diane. Ashley is devastated that Tucker denied having sex with Diane all this time and labeled Abby as a liar for telling Ashley that Tucker is a sleaze. Tucker begins his attempt to convince Ashley that he is committed to her but is interrupted when Kay arrives to inform them both that she will be challenging the validity of their marriage due to Tucker’s lack of mental competence. At the police station, Michael defends Victor’s attempt to leave Genoa City to Spencer, telling him that Victor was not attempting to flee but rather going to Nikki’s rehab facility to search for her. Jack receives a list of eleven boys around Kyle’s age that arrives unaccompanied in Switzerland. Jack, Michael and Victor ask for Spencer’s help in contacting the schools that Kyle may be boarding in. Michael receives a call informing him that Nikki is safe and back at the rehab facility. Victor is relieved to learn that Nikki just needed some time alone and that is why she had left the rehab. Spencer agrees to let Victor be released. Jack is giving details about Kyle on the phone but does not recognize the name associated with the boy that matches Kyle’s physical description so he asks if they can send a picture to verify.

Spencer receives a call from the mayor informing him that Genoa City will be bringing in a high profile detective to oversee Diane’s murder case. Paul and Detective Mauro are looking at the creek bed and discussing that a former FBI agent will be leading the investigation. Paul is dumbfounded when he hears a voice say “He’s here now”, and turns to see Ronan. Paul is stunned when Ronan arrives at the park and begins examining the area that Diane’s body was found. Paul bluntly reminds Ronan that he owes a lot of people in Genoa City answers as to why he snuck out of town with Chance’s liver and never looked back. Ronan coldly tells Paul that his only obligation right now is to find Diane’s killer. Billy gets a call from Rafe as he enters his and Victoria’s home informing him that the judge ruled against Billy having any further contact with Delia. Before he can absorb this blow, Victoria enters through the front door and is shocked to see Billy. Billy tells Victoria that he came to grab the rest of his things from the house, but before he can grab his suitcase, Victoria pleads with him to stay and talk with her. Jack confronts Adam and accuses him of killing Diane. Adam smugly denies that he had anything to do with Diane’s death and scrutinizes Jack for not even knowing where Kyle is. Jack becomes furious and pushes Adam against the wall, demanding that Adam tell him everything he knows about Kyle’s whereabouts. Billy and Victoria cannot fight the true feelings they have for each other and begin to make love after Victoria asks Billy to stay. When they are done, Victoria cannot hold back and confesses that she believes she wouldn’t be the woman she is today without Billy. Victoria moves off to make the two of them coffee, and when she exits into the kitchen, Billy gets up and goes to look inside the package he had noticed when he entered. Billy is overcome with emotion when he removes the painting Victoria had done of them dressed up like Hefner and his Bunny. He quickly places it back in the box, grabs his suitcase, and leaves. Adam tells Jack that he has no idea of Kyle’s whereabouts and Jack begins to leave Adam’s GCAC suite when Ronan arrives to bring them both in for questioning regarding Diane’s murder investigation. Jack insists he had planned to leave for Switzerland in search of Kyle, but Ronan informs him that he is unable to leave the country. When Adam and Jack arrive to GCPD with Ronan, Victor and Michael are just finalizing Victor’s release papers. Victor offers to go search for Kyle himself, but Ronan abruptly informs him that Victor will need to be questioned on his whereabouts on the night of Diane’s murder.

After Jack, Victor, and Adam are moved to another room, the Coroner arrives to inform Paul and Ronan that Diane’s cause of death was blunt force trauma. Both Paul and Ronan are stunned to learn that Diane was bashed in the head ten times with a rock. After being questioned by Ronan, Jack receives the picture of “Timothy Bilton” via email and is relieved to see that it is Kyle. Jack instantly tells Paul that he needs to book at flight to Switzerland immediately, but Paul reminds him that Ronan specifically told Jack he cannot leave the country. When Paul asks Ronan if Jack can leave to find Kyle, Ronan hesitantly agrees. Jack leaves right before a CSI tech arrives with evidence of six other people Diane sent texts to the night of her death.  Victoria’s heart sinks when she returns to the living room to find Billy and the suitcase gone. Sitting alone in a first class plane seat, Billy turns off his phone before soaring away from Genoa City.

Phyllis and Nick are reviewing a story at Restless Style when Jack arrives and announces that he is heading to Switzerland to get Kyle. Jack tells them that Ronan has questioned him on his whereabouts the night of Diane’s death because of recent evidence that Diane sent him a text before she was killed. Phyllis tells Jack and Nick that Diane also sent her a text the night she was murdered asking her to meet in the park. Jack warns Phyllis to be ready for Ronan to interrogate her. Just as Victoria is finishing up a voicemail to Billy asking him to let her know where he ran off too, Victor arrives with news that Ronan has already began questioning Victor about Diane’s death. Victor notes that because the lawsuit Diane filed against Nikki was public record, Ronan could conclude that both Victoria and Nick had motive to harm Diane for going after their mother. Victoria assures Victor she has nothing to hide. Adam finds Abby at the bar still attempting to nurse her hangover and suggests they use each other as an alibi since both of them were at the bar the night of Diane’s death. Abby recalls lunging at Diane in the park for the key that allegedly unlocks the safe harboring her confession. Abby comes back to reality and is reluctant to accept Adam’s alibi offer, despite her foggy recollection of her actions the night of Diane’s death. Nick admits to receiving a text from Diane the night of her death as well. Nick and Phyllis tell each other that they of course ignored Diane’s request to meet at the park. They decide that since they were both working all night at the Restless Style office, they have an alibi in case Ronan questions them. Sure enough, Ronan arrives and is skeptical of Nick and Phyllis’ story that they both stayed all night at the office. Ronan notices Phyllis’ fresh manicure and is suspicious of Phyllis’ claim that she went to the nail salon before her office sleepover. At GCAC, Abby tells Victor that Adam attempted to get her to agree on an alibi for the night of Diane’s murder. As Victor asks Abby if she really did see Diane last night, Ronan arrives demanding to know the answer to that same question. Abby insists she was at the bar the entire night, but the bartender cannot fully recollect how long Abby stayed. Ronan reads the autopsy report and reviews the photos associated with the crime scene. He picks up an envelope to reveal at tiny silver key that had been removed from Diane’s mouth after she was found. Another baggy contains a broken acrylic nail. A photo reveals an imprint of a Harvard ring found on Diane’s forearm.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?

AEW RAMPAGE GRAND SLAM: Hangman Adam Page Punches Ticket to World Title Shot; The Great Muta Saves Sting

On the second half of a two-night pro wrestling television event, AEW Rampage aired an extended two-hour presentation on TNT.  Following Wednesday’s nights AEW Dynamite Grand Slam, where several titles changed hands, the pressure was on for AEW to air another great night of wrestling and continue to amp up their storylines.

Let’s get into some of the highlights of AEW Rampage Grand Slam.  The opening match featured high-flyer Darby Allin and the icon, Sting going up against ‘House of Black’ members, Buddy Matthews and Brody King with meddling Julia Hart at ringside. The match was a No DQ bout, so anything goes, and did.

While Allin and Matthews were beating up on each other with moves off the AEW set scaffoldings, Sting was handcuffed in the ring, with no one to help him. Ah, but cue the music! In a great cameo appearance, The Great Muta came down to the ring, and no one knew whether he would be there to help Sting or the ‘House of Black’. Longtime wrestling fans know that Sting and The Great Muta have had a storied career in bouts together dating as far back as 1989; whether it would be facing each other or teaming up together.

At ‘Grand Slam’ once Muta entered the ring, he turned and spit green mist into Buddy Matthews eyes and it was revealed he was there to make a save for Sting! The blinding mist backed-up Matthews right into Julia Hart, who went crashing through a table. Next, breaking free of his handcuffs Sting secured the victory over Matthews.

In an update on Saturday, it has been announced by Japan’s Pro Wrestling Noah that Sting will participate in The Great Muta’s retirement match.  The organization put out this statement on the event: “We are pleased to announce the participation of AEW superstar and international pro wrestling legend Sting at the GREAT MUTA FINAL ‘BYE-BYE’ event, which will be held on Sunday, January 22, 2023 in Yokohama. It was The Great Muta who came to the unexpected rescue of Sting on AEW Rampage: Grand Slam this week. This incident triggered him to partner with Sting at the Yokohama Arena event.”

Later in the night, in the Golden Ticket Battle Royal, where the winner would get a title shot at the AEW World Championship currently held by Jon Moxley, the melee featured many of the AEW stars trying to throw each other out of the ring and over the top ropes.  From the very beginning, Hangman Adam Page was a target, being attacked on his way to the ring, and now the main question was, would the former champ last through the entire Battle Royal?  In storyline, Matt Hardy was reunited with Private Party, as they worked together in the ring and were all eliminated outside of the ring.  When the smoke cleared, Hangman Page and Rush were the last men standing, and both trying to ‘hang’ on for dear life on the ring ropes and not hit the concrete floor and be eliminated.  In the end, Page scored the victory over Rush earning his title shot.

The main event featured Absolute Ricky Starks vs. Powerhouse Hobbs in a rematch of the former tag team partners feud.  Last time out, Hobbs beat Starks in less than five minutes. However, this time it was a ‘Lights Out’ match where anything goes. Coolest part of the night belonged to Starks with his entrance video.  You can check it out below.  After beating each other up with tables, chairs, chains and a light fixture rod (yup), in the end, Starks scored the victory over the much larger and towering Hobbs.

Honorable mention match goes to Jungle Boy Jack Perry (son of the late 90210’s Luke Perry) and his match with Rey Fenix.  The bout was filled with high-flying maneuvers as only these men can do, and the crowd was into it.  In the end, it was Jungle Boy who secured the win.  However, he ultimately faced a beatdown by his former partner, Luchasaurus, who attacked him in the ring at the command of Christian Cage, who entered the ring with his arm in a sling. Cage blames his injury on Perry from the All Out pay-per-view, and as always, Cage continued to trash Perry and his family.

The second honorable mention goes to Eddie Kingston and Sammy Guevara as they continued their feud. Guevara started the match by calling out how out of shape he believes Kingston is, which played on their previous backstage controversy.  In the end, Kingston went berserk after securing the victory over Guevara, by refusing to let go of his winning hold.  Security came out to extricate the two men.  That instance, made the referee change the decision and award the match to Guevara by disqualification.

AEW Owner/CEO and GM, Tony Khan took to Twitter on the decision and shared: “It’s unfortunate that Sammy Guevara of all people was the beneficiary of your screw-tightening, @RefTurnerAEW In hundreds of AEW shows, we’ve literally only had a few DQs ever, you hate to see it, but Eddie Kingston also put you and your officials in an impossible decision.”

AEW DYNAMITE GRAND SLAM: Jon Moxley Becomes 3-Time World Champ, ‘The Acclaimed’ Win Tag Team Belts For 1st Time

Wednesday night’s AEW Dynamite Grand Slam on TBS, direct from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, New York was a stacked television card featuring multiple title bouts.

In the main event, Jon Moxley faced Bryan Danielson.  Both men, who are members of the Blackpool Combat Club, won their spots to battle for the AEW World Title in a tournament after previous champ, C.M. Punk was reportedly suspended and injured, causing the AEW World Title to be vacant.

The suspension came after an alleged backstage brawl following a press scrum where Punk after AEW’s All Out pay-per-view in Chicago got into altercations with the Elite (The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega).  The Elite had previously won the AEW Trios championship but were stripped of that title, as well.

Going into Grand Slam, most AEW fans felt the momentum was for Danielson to win the belt.  However, it was not meant to be his night. Moxley pinned Danielson, with MJF looming in a stadium sky box complete with the large-sized poker chip that he won at All Out in the Casino Ladder Match (with the help of The Firm). MJF can cash that chip in and wrestle Moxley for the title at apparently, anytime. The smart bet is on MJF to become the next AEW World Champion given his rise in popularity with the audience, even though he is the master heel of the company. Bad boys rule!

In addition, in a history-making moment, The Acclaimed took down Swerve and Our Glory, to become first-time AEW World Tag Team Champions. The crowd was ready for the title to change hands, given this was a rematch between Anthony Bowens and Max Caster (The Acclaimed) vs. Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee (Swerve in Our Glory) from All Out.  The win makes Bowens AEW’s first LGBTQ Champion in its history.

Both Bowens and Caster took to social media after their popular victory.  Bowens shared: “When my Nana passed in 2015 I promised her I’d be a success. Nana, I made it! AEW’s first Gay Champion. Most tag team wins in AEW Most popular team in wrestling. EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED.. your #ForeverChamps.”

While Caster shared: “YO! LISTEN! The Acclaimed are YOUR @AEW world champions. The People’s Choice. Winningest team. Best homegrown team. We are the New Legends.”

Chris Jericho won his eighth pro-wrestling title in his iconic career, beating Claudio Castagnoli with a low blow to take home the Ring of Honor Heavyweight Championship.  In another shady maneuver, ‘The Bastard’ Pac used the ring bell hammer to clobber Orange Cassidy in the head to score the pin and retain the All-Atlantic Championship.

Finally, in the ‘sudden arrival department’, Saraya (formerly known as WWE’s Paige) put all the AEW Women’s Division on notice, when she halted Dr. Britt Baker DMD, Jamie Hayter, Serena Deeb’s beat down of Athena and Toni Storm and make her presence known. Saraya made it clear that she is going to take over the Women’s Division.

So, what did you think of AEW Dynamite Grand Slam? What did you think of the championship outcomes?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below, and don’t forget to watch a special AEW Rampage Grand Slam two-hours even this Friday night on TNT (8pm ET).
