Emily and Jack discuss Patty’s disappearance, both convinced that Adam played a part in it and Emily becomes frustrated that Adam may never get what’s coming to him. At the cabin, Sharon pleads with Adam to live as Nick arrives and is shocked by the scene that greets him. He calls Victor to tell what happened as the paramedics arrive to take Adam to the hospital and Nick comforts Sharon as she admits she shot Adam. Later, as Emily and Jack are disagreeing on how to handle the situation with Patty, as well as their personal and professional lives, Phyllis arrives and Emily is grateful for the interruption. At the hospital, Skye confronts Sharon about the shooting with a camera crew on her heels. Lauren tells Michael that she is drawing a line in the sand with Jill in regards to Fenmore’s. Michael reminds Lauren that Jill isn’t Sarah Smythe but she is reacting to her as if she is. Lauren decides to call Jill just as she hears on the news that Jill is giving an interview from Neil Fenmore’s grave. Later, as Jill is giving her interview, Lauren arrives to set the record straight. As Lily’s health improves, they begin to worry about Cane’s immigration status. Moments later, Malcolm and Sofia arrive with a possible solution to Cane’s problem. Sofia tells them Tucker is partnering with a company in Australia and wants Cane to help run it, which would allow Cane to get a work Visa for eight months and buy him time to find a more permanent solution. Cane and Lily are blown away that Sofia would do so much to help them. Later, Lily and Cane wonder if Sofia’s offer is too good to be true but know that they can’t pass it up, no matter what. Malcolm is so thrilled with what Sofia did for Lily and Cane that he gets down on one knee and asks her to marry him all over again, which she happily accepts.

Nick and Victor step in to help Sharon as the doctor arrives to tell them all that Adam is going to be all right. Sharon nearly faints with relief as Skye is taken to his room. The rangers arrive with questions for Sharon. In Adam’s room, Skye tells an unconscious Adam that Sharon is going to learn her lesson now that she has tried to kill Adam. The ranger accuses Sharon of trying to kill Adam and Nick tells Sharon not to take the bait. Later, Sharon recounts the events leading up to Adam getting shot and Michael tells her that although he believes her a jury may not because she had too many reasons to want him dead.  Phyllis tells Jack that she used Deacon in order to get back at Nick. Emily overhears Phyllis telling Jack that she was delusional trying to be someone she wasn’t for Nick in order to live in a fairy tale. Later, Phyllis tells Jack and Emily that she is going to leave Genoa City for awhile and they may not be ready for the person that comes back. Lauren tells Jill that all she is after is cold-hard cash, not a family and if she doesn’t stop this stop these cheap publicity stunts Lauren will get a restraining order. Jill tells Lauren that all she wants is to feel closer to their father and Lauren overreacts, pushing Jill into a nearby open grave. At the hospital, Adam wakes up and tells the rangers that Sharon shot him in self-defense.

Lauren is stunned when Michael tells her that after what happened last night at the cemetery the only person that would have grounds for a restraining order would be Jill. Meanwhile, Kay tries to make Jill see that Lauren is the only blood family she has and she needs to make things right with her now and stop making everything about money.  Billy and Delia run into Victoria and Reed as they are selling lemonade to help one of Reed’s friends. Billy and Victoria are thrilled at the chance meeting and the opportunity to spend some time together with their kids. Meanwhile, Mac tells J.T. that she thinks it is time that she go back to her volunteer work in Haiti or the Sudan and J.T. is stunned considering he was about to ask her to move in with him. J.T. tells Mac that he loves her and that running away won’t help her deal with her problems but in G.C. she has family and friends who can help her. Later, Billy, Victoria, Delia and Reed enjoy their day together as they sell lemonade. As Ryder’s trial is set to begin, Kevin realizes that he is about to lose his business after already losing his wife to the brother that he was so eager to have once-upon-a-time. As Jana and Ryder hitchhike back to Genoa City, Ryder changes his mind, but Jana pleads with him to go back for Kevin’s sake. Ryder tells Jana that he loves her and asks her to start over with him someplace new but she refuses and tells him he can’t go either. Later, at the courthouse, everyone waits on news from Ryder, hoping that Jana might come through for Kevin at the last moment. Ryder refuses to go back just to be thrown in jail, but Jana pleads with him to be the man that she thinks he is.  Jill meets with Tucker and he tells her that he wants to know what Billy knows about Victoria’s meeting in Japan. Jill leads him on, making him believe that she knows more than she in fact does in order to get something out of him for herself. Jill asks for Tucker’s help finding out if her father ever looked for her and Tucker agrees to help her as long as she holds up her end of the bargain. J.T. and Mac run into Billy and Victoria while they are with the kids and J.T. is concerned to see that they are spending time together with their children but Victoria assures him that they are taking one step at a time. Later, Billy asks for Jill’s word that she will drop the story about Newman’s stronghold on the Japanese market. Kevin is crushed all over again when Ryder doesn’t show up in court and Jana doesn’t even call, allowing Kevin to lose Crimson Lights. Mac overhears that Kevin is going to lose the coffeehouse and offers to buy back in and split the profits with him until he can afford to buy the entire thing back from him and Kevin accepts. Later, Jana arrives at the coffeehouse and tells Kevin that she tried to get Ryder to come back but he refused. Kevin however, is too furious to hear her and throws her out of the coffeehouse. Outside, Jana breaks down into tears. Meanwhile, Ryder calls Daisy and tells her that he is on his way.  Kay and Tucker have a moment of bonding as Kay tells him about Liz Foster. Meanwhile, Jill sneaks onto Billy’s computer and finds the information about the antique gun. After another run in with Lauren, Jill calls Tucker and tells him that she has what he is looking for. Mac tells J.T. that everything that happened today made her realize that she is needed and wanted in Genoa City and admits to J.T. that she loves him.

As Gloria and Jeff prepare for the opening of Gloworm things go from bad to worse when the Health Inspector shows up at Gloworm and tells Jeff and Gloria that they can’t open until they pass their inspection. Just as they pass the inspection, Jeff and Gloria learn that their chef is sick in the kitchen. Later, they realize they have no bartenders and no chef so Jeff tells Gloria to roll up her sleeves. Michael tells Sharon that the D.A. isn’t filing charges against her just as Adam and Skye arrive and Adam and Sharon lock eyes. Sharon apologizes to Adam but Adam tells her again that it was his fault, which clearly irritates Skye. Michael jumps to protect Sharon and leads her away before anything more can be said. As he prepares for his Internals Affairs hearing, Chance tells Nina that he will always do the right thing, no matter what. Meanwhile, Chris reminds Heather that as much as they hate having to set Chance up if they don’t continue down this path Chance could end up getting himself killed. At Kevin’s as Chloe is leaving for Chance’s hearing she opens the door and finds herself face to face with Jana. Jana wonders if there is something going on between Chloe and Kevin but they both tell her there isn’t. Chloe leaves as Jana tries to apologize again for everything that happened with Ryder but Kevin isn’t interested. Jana tries to explain to Kevin why she reached out to Ryder instead of him but Kevin tells her that what happened between her and Ryder forced him to move on and now he isn’t in love with her anymore. Chris tries to reassure Nina that everything will be okay with Chance. In the hearing, Chance tells the panel that the drugs are his and Ronan, Heather and Sid stunned by the turn of events. Outside, Chloe arrives and Nina is surprised to see her after what Chance did but Chloe assures her that she doesn’t believe for a moment that the drugs belonged to Chance and it is more important to support him than to hold a grudge right now. Later, I.A. officer takes Chance into custody as Heather starts yelling that Chance is lying. Skye asks Adam that everything Sharon has done to him, what it is going to take for Adam to get over her. Later, Adam and Skye plan to go to the opening of Gloworm as Michael invites Sharon to attend with him. At Gloworm, photographers and reporters are laying in wait as Gloria is greeting everyone as they arrive including, Adam, Skye, Michael and Sharon, who is stopped in her tracks when she sees Adam. Kevin gives Jana some money to live on as they two go their separate ways. Meanwhile, Heather tries to get Chance to tell her what he is up to but he won’t budge, saying that he is merely paying for his crime. Chloe and Nina are stunned when Chance comes out in cuffs and they plead with Chris and Heather to help him but Chance tells Nina to remember what he told her earlier because his life depends on it. Later, Kevin invites a miserable Chloe to come with him to the opening of Gloworm to help lift both of their spirits. Jana, however, follows them on their way to the club. Meanwhile, Chris, Heather, Ronan and Sid discuss what to do next about Chance.

Jack tries to get Emily to go to Gloria’s club opening with him but she has a patient in crisis and tells him she has to go to the office. Jack comes up with an idea, however on how to salvage the evening. Later, Jack surprises Emily with Christmas in August.  Ashley and Tucker confront Victor with their suspicions that Victoria gave the antique gun as bribe in Japan and tell him that they know it went up on the auction block shortly thereafter. Victor tells them they have no real proof and they know it.  At Gloworm, the who’s who of Genoa City start arriving as Nick tries to calm Sharon’s nerves, while Adam’s eyes remain permanently fixed on her. Victoria and Billy arrive and admit to the press that they are an item and Chloe and Kevin are admittedly impressed by Gloria’s décor. As everyone is trying in their own way to enjoy themselves, Abby arrives with her own camera crew and Daniel realizes things are about to get out of control. Kevin’s face falls when he sees Jana enter right behind Abby. Later, Abby tells Daniel in confidence that Jack is helping her get a hold her inheritance but she needs to continue to let everyone think that she is acting out. Nearby, Chris and Paul share a drink to their anniversary, while Jill and Lauren continue to share barbs instead of sisterly bonding. Skye confronts Sharon about Sharon’s time alone with Adam at the cabin but Adam interrupts them and tries to get Sharon to talk to him. As Emily and Jack are getting into the Christmas spirit they are interrupted by work and the moment is lost. As they continue to try to go back to what they had they realize what they lost. Emily wonders where it leaves them now and Jack doesn’t know. Nick rescues Sharon from Adam after a photographer snaps a photo of “Mr. and Mrs. Newman.” Billy and Victoria try to help a clearly intoxicated Abby not make a fool of herself but they are a few drinks too late and decide to let Daniel handle her instead. Chloe is stung when she tells Billy about Chance’s cheating escapade and Billy misunderstands her, saying he would never cheat on Victoria. Victor arrives and Victoria decides to make a statement, kisses Billy in front of the photographers and her father. Later, Skye tries to remind Adam what he has at stake if he doesn’t stop pinning over Sharon. Victor tells Nick and Michael about his conversation with Ashley and Tucker and they consider going to the D.O.J. directly and taking it out of Tucker’s hands before Newman or Victoria gets into anymore trouble. Victoria overhears them and wonders what trouble she could be in. Inside, a wasted Abby climbs into the giant champagne glass as she strips down to nothing but her corset just as Ashley and Tucker arrive. Later, Victor tells Victoria that Billy conned her and he is the reason they are going to lose everything.  Chris and Paul fall back into old habits as they remember the past and they end up in a kiss, which Nina witnesses. Nina slips away just as Paul and Chris realize they can’t continue. Jana tells Kevin that she wants him back. Nearby, Abby asks Ashley why, if she loves her, does she hate who Abby is. Jill and Lauren have an explosive argument over the Fenmore name once again but Michael and Nick step in before Jill can attack Lauren. Later, Ashley comes face to face with Adam for the first time since his return to Genoa City.

Emily and Jack both wonder if they have a future. Emily tells Jack that she knows who she is and knows that they wouldn’t work but that doesn’t make letting go any easier. Jack takes her in his arms as she cries. Meanwhile, Patty calls Paul and tells him that she is okay and is going to make up for all the bad things that she did. Paul tries to get him to tell her where she is but she refuses and says that she is never coming back to Genoa City. Later, Paul tells Emily and Jack about his call from Patty and Emily decides it’s time for her to get away from Genoa City as well. Jack and Emily say goodbye. In a Latin bar, Patty becomes Mary Jane again. Nick stunned when Phyllis tells him that she and Summer are leaving town for awhile. Meanwhile, Victor tells Victoria that Billy used her and Victoria remembers her conversation with Billy about the gun just as Billy comes outside and Victor tells him to get lost because Victoria wants nothing more to do with him. Billy tries to figure out what is going on and ask Victoria to come with him but Victoria tells him to stay away from her and leaves and Victor thinks he has finally won. Later, Nick sets Phyllis off with his superior attitude and so she throws Sharon back in his face. Phyllis tells him that he was never completely there for her because Sharon was always a part of him and when Phyllis tells him that she doesn’t think he was ever really sorry for cheating on her, Nick is forced to admit that it brought him Faith so he can’t truly regret it. Jana pleads with Kevin to give them a chance to get back what they have lost but Kevin refuses telling her that she threw it all away. Nearby, Ashley has her chance to tell Adam exactly what she thinks of him and everyone is incensed by how Adam just seems to be able to rewrite history to suit him. Ashley even has a confrontation with Skye and realizes she is as delusional as her husband. Later, Ashley tells Tucker that she won’t allow him to go to the D.O.J. against Victor. Meanwhile, Victor promises Adam that he will get what’s coming to him no matter what.  Alone, Victoria tells Billy that Tucker knows about the gun and he was the only one that could have told Tucker but Billy swears that he didn’t do it, however Victoria doesn’t believe him and leaves Billy standing in the parking lot alone. Meanwhile, Ashley makes it clear to Tucker that if he decides to go to the D.O.J. and report Victor she will leave Jabot. Tucker is careful not to make any promises but makes sure to let Ashley know that he won’t do anything for now as long as Victor makes some concessions. Jill moves in and Tucker tells her that he will get her the information he promised. Victor warns Sharon not to let her guard down around Adam, not to let herself be sucked in by him again, even as Sharon admits there are times when she forgets what he has done and is reminded of the man she fell in love with. Meanwhile, Phyllis loses control of herself as their argument escalates and she feels as she is being compared to Sharon. Nick leaves and Phyllis breaks into sobs. Later, Skye tells Adam that if he doesn’t get over his fixation of Sharon she is going to divorce and take their money and Vance Abrams with her.  Billy realizes that Jill leaked the information about the gun to Tucker and fires her from the magazine on the spot. Gloria is horrified and Jeff starts laughing when the cops shut then down after Abby’s strip tease in the champagne glass on their opening night. Outside, Adam walks up to Sharon and kisses her deeply and she lets him. After a moment she pulls back and walks away.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
