Chance tries to explain himself to Chloe but Chloe is shell shocked by Chance’s admission of cheating. Ronan is none to pleased that Chris blew his cover especially when she even goes as far as to tell Heather and Paul that she and Ronan are responsible for planting the drugs in Chance’s car. Later, Chris explains that they did it to protect Chance but neither Chance nor Nina can know anything about their covert operation. Meanwhile, Chance pleads with Chloe to listen to him, to believe him when he tells her that what happened was a mistake and that he loves her but Chloe is devastated and tells Chance that he is merely a good liar. As they continue to argue over Patty, Emily realizes that Jack is asking her to choose between their relationship and helping Patty. At the hospital, Patty continues to write in her diary that she didn’t kill anyone. Meanwhile, Adam works to break into the hospital to get to Patty again. Later, Jack tells Emily that if given the chance Patty will blow up their lives again. Meanwhile, Adam finds Patty’s diary and tears out the page that she wrote in saying she didn’t kill anyone and then starts writing something of his own.  Heather and Paul tell Chris and Ronan that Chance and Nina won’t let this go until they find out the truth. Chris and Ronan, however, make Paul and Heather realize how serious this situation is and that it is necessary that Nina and Chance know nothing in order to protect them. Meanwhile, Chance tells Chloe that he will do whatever it takes to be with her but Chloe tells him that she just needs to get away from him. Later, Paul calls Chance and asks him to back off tailing Heather and he agrees. Nina arrives and is annoyed that Chloe isn’t there supporting Chance but Chance tells her that he is the one that screwed up. Heather starts to see Ronan with new eyes. As they are finally relax around one another Chloe shows up to confront Heather. Meanwhile, Chance tells Nina what happened with Heather and refuses to hear a bad word about Chloe from Nina but Nina merely tells him to think about reasons he cheated. Chance tells her that he wants Chloe forever and he can’t live with himself for hurting her. Later, Chloe attacks Heather, who takes it in stride until Chloe pushes Heather too far and Heather decides to push back. Chloe ends up slapping Heather across the face just as Ronan enters to see it.  Emily finally sees how much Jack loves and fears for her and agrees to stop seeing Patty. Meanwhile, Patty wakes up to find Adam in her room. Adam tells her that he is the ghost of Hightower and he looks like Adam because that is who she meant to kill the night of the ball. Adam tells Patty that he needs to take her down the rabbit hole after hearing her talk in her dreams and Patty decides to trust him. She writes Paul a goodbye note and she and Adam take off together. Later, Adam gives Patty a new identity and tells her that she is going to Canada to start her penance as a nun. Chance tells Nina that he is going to fix things with Chloe, and figure out which cops are dirty. Meanwhile, Ronan picks Chloe up and removes her from the apartment. He tells her that he knows what she is going through and he is sorry.   At the jail, Abby is disheartened by her situation but is uplifted when Daniel shows up to support her. Abby puts on a brave face when it looks like Daniel can’t pay her bail and she is going to have to go back to jail but Jack shows up at the last moment and saves the day and Abby immediately drops her bravado, thanking her uncle profusely. Mac’s postpartum grows as she continues to miss the twins and J.T. tries to tell her that it is only natural. J.T. pushes Mac to visit the twins and Mac realizes that seeing Cane and Lily with the twins may help her remember why she became their surrogate in the first place. Meanwhile, Lily and Cane get the news that not only are the twins doing better but Lily is being discharged from the hospital today. Adam tells Skye that they need to go over their story one more time before the authorities find out about Patty. Meanwhile, Paul, Owen and Mr. Hewitt arrive to take Patty’s statement and become alarmed when they realize that Patty isn’t in her room. Paul finds the note that Patty left for him. Later, as Owen and the other hospital officials decide to set out to look for Patty, Paul tells them that Patty has been a pawn in Adam’s game since the beginning and Paul is convinced that he was there last night. As Emily is talking to Ashley about setting boundaries with Abby, Paul calls Emily and tells her that Patty escaped the hospital and both women are left in stunned disbelief. Mac and J.T. arrive to see the twins and Mac immediately brightens but when Mac hears that Lily is being discharged from the hospital she is disappointed in Lily that she could possibly even consider leaving the twins. Meanwhile, Cane and Lily arrive home and Lily tells Cane that they can’t relax because they need to get their house ready to bring their children home. Later, Mac wonders if it will be too difficult to be a part of the twins’ lives.

At the jail, Jack, Daniel and Abby overhear that Patty escaped the hospital and Jack rushes off to make sure Emily is safe. Meanwhile, Paul nearly breaks down Adam and Skye’s door demanding to talk to them. Adam opens the door pretending like they just woke up from a night of partying and is smug and “clueless” when Paul asks where Patty is. Skye backs Adam up, saying that they were in a casino all night. Owen assures Paul that he will take Adam down if he finds evidence that he is lying about his alibi. Later, Jack arrives home and is relieved that Emily is okay. Ashley asks about Abby and wonders where she is. Just as Daniel brings Abby to the Abbott’s to see Ashley, Paul arrives to see Emily and Jack. He tells them all that Patty hasn’t been found yet and asks Emily if there is any place she thinks Patty may go. Paul tells them that he is sure that Adam helped his sister escape and is using her to get away with murder. Meanwhile, Skye finally asks Adam if he actually killed Hightower. Later, Abby tells Ashley that Brad’s house belongs to her and she wants Ashley to move out. Adam tells Skye that he went to such great lengths to stop Patty from recanting because he knew he would be public enemy number one again if she did and he was protecting them both. Owen tells Paul, Emily and Jack that Adam and Skye have airtight alibis and that the only fingerprints that were found on the ventilation system were Patty’s. Emily tells Owen that she wants to help in any way possible and Jack realizes that Emily is choosing Patty over them again. Mac sees Lily and Cane holding the twins and is hit with a wave of sadness and discomfort as she tells J.T. it is time for them to leave.

There is an uncharacteristic heat wave on Chloe’s birthday as everyone around her seems to be a little crazy, including Chloe, who is still hurting from Chance’s betrayal. Meanwhile, Heather meets with Chance and he asks her to get him the D.A.’s file on the Riggs case, unaware that they are being spied on by a hit man, nearby. Later, Chloe falls asleep and wakes up in a Cinderella fantasy of her own. At first it starts off as nightmare as Chloe is in rag-tags and Billy, Chance and Cane are Princes who want nothing to do with her but then it turns into her dreams as Kay, her fairy godmother appears and transforms her into a princess with a prince of her own. Billy teases Lauren when he asks if calling her Aunty Lauren would be pushing it. Billy assures Lauren that he doesn’t feel the same way that Jill does about the Fenmore’s money or name and Lauren is greatly appreciative. Later, after talking to Billy, Lauren realizes that she has more family now than just Jill and decides to go talk to her sister to see if she can meet her halfway. Heather agrees to help Chance in order to keep him from getting into more trouble, unaware that the hit man is listening to their conversation and planning trouble for them both. Meanwhile, Chloe’s fantasy turns back into a nightmare as all the princes are paired with other princes, including Chance with Heather. Chloe wakes up in a fury and calls Chance to meet her at Jimmy’s. Chloe then calls Ronan and asks him to ditch Heather for a while to meet her because she has information that may be help to him and he agrees but all Chloe is really interested in is payback. Later, Chloe, dressed to kill, runs into Billy and Victoria at Jimmy’s and Billy gives her a charm of the Empire State Building for her birthday. Ronan sees her and immediately realizes that she is looking for payback and Chance is her target. Lily comes home to a completely clean and orderly house and is touched that her family went to all the trouble to make sure that the house and nursery were ready for the twins’ arrival home from the hospital. Malcolm tells them all that his fiancée is in town just as Sofia arrives and Neil is shocked to realize who she is. Later, as Neil’s family is falling in love with Sofia, Neil makes it clear to Malcolm that he doesn’t like his lies or deceit and he doesn’t want Sofia anywhere near his family. Lily and Cane are little shocked when they learn the news, separately, that Sofia is Tucker’s new CFO but Lily tries to make Neil see how happy Malcolm is. Sofia asks Neil to try and trust her.

Lauren and Michael arrive in time to hear Jill trashing on Lauren to Kay and Nina. Jill starts to get worked up again when Lauren tells Jill that she was “daddy’s little girl” but Lauren tells her that she came over to make things right. Lauren tells Jill that they are a lot alike, that she just didn’t want to admit it before but now she is ready. Jill’s walls are up and she doesn’t want to risk being played by another person let alone her sister. Later, Lauren tells Michael that all bets are off. Just as Chance arrives at the bar, Chloe stuns everyone by laying a passionate kiss on Ronan. Chance advances on Ronan but Billy steps in. Chance demands to know where Heather is, which cuts Chloe deeply. Chance runs out to make sure Heather is okay. Meanwhile, Heather finds herself trapped with the hit man. Later, Billy tries to seduce Victoria in order to apologize for the earlier Chloe drama. Chance finds Heather just as she manages to get free of car and the hit man and Sid arrives and tells Chance to take Heather and leave. At the bar, before Chloe knows what is happening, Ronan has her up against the bar and kisses her deeply.

Jack and Abby make a plan to meet and go over her financial statements in order to clearly define what she has in her trusts. Jack runs into Nick a little later and Nick asks him where Sharon is but Jack refuses, saying that he promised to keep Sharon’s whereabouts a secret, unaware that Adam is hovering nearby. Meanwhile, Phyllis is caught off guard with Victor meets with her to offer her a very sizeable divorce settlement. Later, Victoria allows Victor’s distrust of Billy get to her and continues to stonewall him, which clearly hurts Billy. Ashley calls and summons Billy while he is with Victoria and he tells her that she is probably calling to grill him about Japan some more. Victoria is evasive and Billy tells her that he hoped they were past all the games. Later, Tucker and Ashley offer Billy a very sweet deal to flip on Victor and Victoria but he turns them down flat. Billy refuses to become a part of the Newman-Abbott war or hurt Victoria just to get back at Victor for any reason. Phyllis realizes that Victor is trying to keep this divorce out of court and thus the events of the last year out of the public record and Phyllis refuses to be bought. Meanwhile, Nick realizes that Sharon is at the Abbott cabin and decides to go over and Adam isn’t far behind after hearing their conversation. Later, Nick arrives at the cabin and immediately starts explaining himself but is pleasantly surprised when Sharon doesn’t attack him or seem at all upset by his sudden appearance. Back at the coffeehouse, Adam plants a seed with Phyllis when he drops a bomb on her that Nick is up at the cabin with Sharon and although Phyllis plays tough in front of Adam, her façade cracks the minute he is gone. As Abby and Jack start to go through her trust papers, Abby is astonished when she realizes how much her Newman trust is worth. Victor calls her and asks her to meet him at the club and Abby jumps on the chance. At the club, Victor and Victoria try to reason with Abby but Abby tells Victoria that she doesn’t want to be like her or Victor and she wants her money. Victor tells her that if she keeps up her act she will be an old woman before she sees a dime of it. Victor starts to realize that Jack is helping Abby gain control of her trust and won’t listen when Victoria advises him to bend a little and allow Abby access to some of her trust. As Sharon invites Nick to stay for dinner, the two start to fall into old habits. Meanwhile, Phyllis can’t take not knowing what is going on between Nick and Sharon at the cabin and takes off to find out. On her way to the cabin, Phyllis blows a tire and ends up on the side of the road stranded as a massive rainstorm begins. Later, Phyllis is stunned when none other than Deacon Sharpe is standing in the raining asking to give her a hand. When Abby sees how much she is actually worth in total it knocks her off her feet and she starts to see Victor’s point. Jack tells her that admitting that means she deserves to finally be taken seriously. Meanwhile, Billy tells Victoria everything he knows about the bribery he witnessed in Japan and that Ashley and Tucker are dead set on exposing it. Billy assures her that he hasn’t told a soul and never will. However, Ashley suggests to Tucker that he find out if Billy ever mentioned anything to Jill. Later, as Abby is leaving Jack’s she brushed past Victor, who came to confront Jack. Nick thanks Sharon for everything and takes off into the rain. As she is cleaning up she hears a knock and thinks its Nick but is shocked to find a rain-soaked Adam at her front door. As Ashley tells Abby that she has moved out and in with Jack, Abby refuses to be remorseful, telling Ashley that the only way she will learn to be responsible with her money is allow sink or swim and she has a plan to get access to it. Meanwhile, Jack and Victor face off over Abby. Later, Sharon tells Adam to leave as he desperately tries to explain himself to Sharon. As Sharon opens the door to Adam, Nick returns and demands to know what Adam is doing there. At the Abbott mansion, Victor and Jack are tearing each other apart, just as Ashley arrives with her things.

Victor tells her that Jack is using Abby just as he did with Colleen. In the rain, Phyllis tells Deacon that she doesn’t need his help. Deacon tries to defend himself to Phyllis but she tells him to get lost. However, when she hurts herself trying to change the tire, Deacon comes to the rescue. Later, Deacon uses his shirt as bandage for Phyllis’s hand, he refuses to leave her until he changes her tire and although, Phyllis hates him she can’t help feeling a minute of gratitude. Chloe tells Kevin that Chance slept with Heather and he gives her his key and tells her she can move back in with him. Nearby, Chris gets news that there was another attempt on Heather’s life and she and Paul leave to make sure Heather is okay. Meanwhile, Chance is furious with Sid and Ronan for leaving Heather unprotected. Chris and Paul arrive and Chance immediately tells Paul to get Heather away from Ronan to keep her safe. Out in the hall, Chance runs into Chloe and tells her that Heather was almost killed because she was using Ronan to make him jealous. Ashley tells Jack to stay away from Abby. Meanwhile, Victor warns Abby that Jack will no longer be helping her go to war against him and Ashley and she will be hard pressed to find anyone else in town that will. Later, Ashley tells Victor that they should consider compromising with Abby but Victor isn’t so sure that even that will stop her. At the Abbott mansion, Jack tells Abby that they need to keep their alliance a secret. Sharon tells Adam that she doesn’t want to see him anymore and Adam is forced to leave but Sharon is none too thrilled when Nick orders her to pack her things and bring Faith back to Genoa City. Sharon refuses to leave the cabin but at Nick’s insistence Sharon agrees to having a gun in the cabin for her own protection. Abby meets with Victor and Ashley and they decide to give her a portion of her trust as long as she agrees to no more public nudity. Abby, however, tells them she isn’t interested because she will get all her trust on her own. Chance tells Chloe he has never see her like this – lying and scheming, but Chloe tells him that they have finally see each other for who they are and they are even. Chance warns Chloe to stay away from Ronan but she refuses, wanting to hurt Chance the way he hurt her. Meanwhile, Ronan tells Paul, Heather and Chris that they are going to have a huge problem if Chance won’t back off. Later, Kevin finds Chloe, who is a complete mess, and she tells him about her fight with Chance. Kevin tells her that if it were him he would have kicked the crap out of Ronan. Ronan and Chance end up in a heated fist-fight when Chance accuses Ronan of being a dirty cop, yet again. Deacon is forced to go to his place to call for help when he realizes that Phyllis’s spare is flat. Nick shows up and is stunned to find Phyllis. Phyllis lets loose on Nick when he realizes that she followed him up to the cabin. All her anger and resentment comes pouring out of her before she finally tells him to just leave her alone and Nick takes off into the rain. Meanwhile, Adam watches Sharon outside the cabin. Later, Phyllis sees Nick returning to the car and using Deacon to send a message as she grabs him and kisses him passionately. At the cabin, something outside spooks Sharon and she grabs the gun and shoots, not realizes that she shot Adam. Kevin does his best to celebrate Chloe’s birthday with her and cheer her up.

In the parking lot, Chris drags Ronan and Chance apart and has to remind Ronan that he was fighting with his own brother.

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.
