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.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
