Meanwhile, Adam tries to convince “Emily” that he is the victim and that the Newmans are out to get him but Patty remembers Adam’s plots and doesn’t buy a word of his story. Later, Patty listens to Adam’s story as he tells her that he is suicidal and tries to figure out how to use it to her advantage. Nick gets a call from the hospital telling him that Phyllis has been in an accident. Later, the doctor tells Nick, Sharon, Jack and Daniel that Phyllis fractured her leg and they are all confused when they learn that Phyllis was coming home from the Abbott cabin. Meanwhile, Victor gently pushes Ashley to go to the hospital with him in order to get the DNA test done as soon as possible. Cane shows up at Billy’s trailer asking for his help and tells Billy that Lily’s cancer is back. Later, Lily admits to her family that she lied about her PET scan results and that is why Cane escaped custody. Billy comes by the Immigration office and pretends not to know anything about Cane’s escape but manages to get Lily a message. After Lily leaves, Neil, Devon and Malcolm realize that Billy knows something about where Cane is. Nick realizes what Phyllis was doing at the Abbott cabin when he finds Faith’s plaque among her things. Nick tells everyone and Daniel becomes angry with him, unaware of the new circumstances surrounding Faith. Amber tries to stop him and Nick and Sharon tell him the truth. Ashley realizes that she has to do the DNA test tonight to stop from hurting any more people. Billy brings Lily to see Cane and Lily tells Cane that he has to turn himself in. Later, Devon calls Lily and she tells him where they are and promises that she will get Cane to turn himself in. Devon in turn tells Michael where they are, realizing the severity of the situation. Paul runs into “Emily” at the hospital and tells her to stay away from his sister. As Sharon runs into Patty and tells her that Jack is here, Adam hears Sharon’s voice and they finally come face to face. Later, Patty tells the group that she was appointed Adam’s psychiatrist and they are all shocked when she tells them that Adam may not be responsible for his actions. Meanwhile, Adam tries to manipulate Sharon by reminding her that he saved Noah’s life. Sharon begs Adam for the truth, believing that a part of Adam truly loved her but Adam swears on Hope’s grave that he knows nothing and that sends Sharon over the edge.

Patty goes to see Emily at the sanitarium and finally let down her guard until Paul arrives and tells her that he scheduled a hearing to keep “Emily” from treating “Patty” any longer. Meanwhile, Nick tells Phyllis that he is going to be her personal slave for a few weeks since she has always been there to support him. Later, Sharon and Ashley prepare to take the DNA test. Meanwhile, Patty decides to inject Emily with a stimulant so that Emily will be a basket case in court and Emily begins to panic knowing it could kill her.

Neil arrives at Billy’s trailer right before the Immigrations officers, who take Cane into custody as Lily cries out to Cane that she loves him. Later, Michael tells Lily that as long as she has cancer Cane won’t be deported. As Paul and Michael prepare for “Patty’s” hearing, they find Emily in a state of unrest and Emily tries to tell them that Patty drugged her. Meanwhile, Jack tries to convince “Emily” to let Patty go for her own sake as well as Patty’s but Patty refuses and goes off on Jack which catches him off guard. Later, Patty isn’t happy when she learns that Jack has been summoned to testify. Victoria tells Victor that J.T. is suing her for full custody of Reed. Meanwhile, J.T. admits to Mac that he wants to protect Reed but not at Victoria’s expense by painting her as a bad mother. Later, J.T. opens up to Mac about wanting to keep Victor out of Reed’s life as Victor promises Victoria that J.T. will not be allowed to take Reed away from her. Chance goes to see Adam to take his statement about the charges pending against him and Adam continues to maintain that he is the victim. Meanwhile, Jill starts trying to dig up dirt on Adam’s arrest, which is the last thing Billy wants. Billy refuses to let Jill exploit Ashley’s pain for Restless Style. Later, Adam tells Chance everything that happened in the cabin and Chance isn’t sure he can believe a word of it. At Restless Style, Chloe tries to get information out of Chance about their intimate night together but he gives nothing away. While Chloe is busy, Chance questions Billy about Adam’s accusations. Billy admits that a meeting took place but says that it was an intervention, not a kidnapping. Meanwhile, Jill goes to see Adam and he tells her about the kidnapping. Later, Chance is forced to spill his big plans to Billy when Chloe lets something slip and Billy enjoys giving Chance a hard time.

At the court room, Patty manages to convince the judge that “Patty” can’t see Jack for her own health. When Michael tells Emily, Emily realizes what Patty is up to. As Jack and Patty give testimony to the court, Emily pretends to be sick and then runs into the court yelling for Jack. As Emily tries to talk to Jack, the judge agrees with Patty and denies Paul’s petition to remove Patty from Emily’s case. Mac reminds J.T. what he is up against declaring war against the Newmans. Victoria, however, tells Victor to stay out of the fight between her and J.T. Later, Victor backs up Billy’s story with Chance and reminds Chance that Adam can’t be trusted. Meanwhile, Adam throws away his annulment papers. Billy runs into Victoria who tells him about J.T. suing for custody because of what happened at the cabin and Billy starts to worry about what J.T. may say to the police. At Restless Style, Jill starts writing her article on Adam. Michael refuses to give up on “Patty’s” case, telling Paul that “Emily” has zero objectivity and now even Jack knows it. Meanwhile, Jack starts to wonder about “Patty” after the events in the court room. Alone, Emily finally breaks down. Kevin pushes Lauren to tell Michael the truth about the photos and Paul as Daisy eavesdrops on them. Paul arrives and Lauren shows him the photos and Paul realizes that they have to take to Michael before someone else gets the chance. Meanwhile, Jana continues to have faith that Kevin won’t give up on her. Later, Gloria tries to set Kevin up on a blind date to get his mind off Jana. Kevin tells Gloria that Jana is still his wife.

Victor and Jack meet with Kay and Neil to tell Kay that they intend on giving Kay back control of Jabot. Kay, however, tells them that it isn’t a good idea. Meanwhile, Tucker stops by to check in on Ashley and Ashley admits to him that Faith may not be her daughter and that she may be running out of time to capture of the memories of her daughter. Tucker offers to help Ashley make a video of her and Faith together. Later, Kay explains everything that happened with Tucker and Victor and Jack offer to gift Jabot back to her so that Tucker can’t touch it but Kay refuses to take charity from them. Daisy taunts Jana by telling her that Kevin is going on a date and that she is going to destroy Michael and Lauren’s marriage next. Meanwhile, Lauren and Paul prepare themselves to tell Michael what happened the night of their encounter. Later, Jack, Victor and Michael offer Kay another option – a tax shelter for Jabot that won’t burden any of them as Kay had worried. Kay graciously accepts and as Michael is giving them all the contracts they find inside photos of Lauren and Paul, which shocks them, especially Michael. Neil advises Michael not to do anything rash until he has spoken to Lauren and heard the truth. Meanwhile, Lauren and Paul try to get to the bottom of Lauren’s mood swings and what has been causing them. In front of Daisy and Ryder, Jana pretends to finally be broken and lost at the thought of losing Kevin but after they leave Jana’s demeanor changes and works on strategizing a plan of escape. Meanwhile, Gloria tries to help Kevin remember what it is like to live life without Jana. Later, Jana manages to break the lock on her cage. As Ashley is playing with Faith, Tucker watches them interact and sees how much she loves her daughter. Ashley finally loses her composure and Tucker moves in to comfort her. Moments later, while Ashley is out of the room, Neil arrives to find Tucker there. Tucker leaves but Neil still wonders what was going on. Later, Tucker confronts Kay, Jack and Victor about their meeting regarding Jabot to inform them that he wants Jabot for himself and he plans to get it. Michael confronts Paul and Lauren with the photos and throws Paul out of Lauren’s office. Meanwhile, Kevin agrees to go on the blind date. Daisy and Ryder come back to find Jana gone and Daisy orders Ryder to find her immediately. Later, just as Jana is desperately trying to escape and it looks like she may make it she makes a wrong turn and slams directly into Ryder.

Adam calls Victor to tell him about the article on RestlessStyle.com; Victor tells Jill she’ll regret it if she printed any of Adam’s lies. Meanwhile, a furious Billy tries to delete Jill’s article when Jack arrives to confront him. Billy swears to Jack that the article was all Jill’s doing but Jack is hard pressed to believe him. Victor lays into Billy about the article, but also blames Jack; Jill arrives and tells them she’s responsible for the article. Jill accuses Jack and Victor of being hypocrites. Victor makes it clear that Billy should never let the article see the light of day and that Jack shouldn’t have involved Billy in the first place. Jack tells Jill that Adam manipulated her; Billy tells her he was at the cabin too, a fact Adam conveniently left out. Jack tells Billy he has to fire Jill, but he doesn’t. Billy tells Jill she will be out if she pulls another stunt like the article again. Victor confronts Adam about the lies in the article and tells him that what happened at the cabin was for Adam’s own good – it was a chance for him to come clean. Victor tells Adam because of his lies he’ll find himself in an even deeper grave, a statement a passing nurse hears. Victor tells Adam he’s done all he can for him and only God can help him now; Victor walks out on his son. Jana pleads with Ryder to let her go but Daisy arrives and tells Jana that Kevin is out on a date. Meanwhile, Kevin and his date, Allison, readily admit how awkward their blind date is just as Gloria and Jeff watch from the shadows to see how things are going. Later, things between Kevin and Allison seem to be going well until he lets it slip that he is married. Kevin admits that he has no idea why Jana left him but all he can do now is move on. Kevin tells Allison about his relationship with Jana; he comes to a realization that it can’t be over. Kevin tells Gloria and Jeffrey he’s not giving up on Jana, ever.

Jeffrey teases Gloria about her wanting to spend more time with Tucker; she simply wants to keep her business options open. When Gloria sees that Kevin’s date has hit a rough patch, she plans to swoop in and rescue him, but Jeffrey goes instead. Jeffrey hits on Allison which riles Gloria. Gloria thinks she’ll be able to find another girl for Kevin at the policeman’s ball. Jeffrey suggests Gloria take Tucker as her date, but Gloria won’t consider leaving Jeffrey on his own because he’ll go after Allison. In Lauren’s office, Lauren explains to Michael that she was drugged and that is why she ended up with Paul, and assures him they didn’t make love. Michael promises her that they will find out who is behind this. They learn that the tests Paul ran on Lauren’s pill turned up negative – they were not tampered with. Michael starts to get a headache and it starts to dawn on them that something at Fenmore’s may be making Lauren sick. From the coffeehouse, Michael arranges for a toxicity test on Lauren’s office. Lauren suspects that Sheila is behind everything, but Michael assures her that Sheila is dead. Michael reveals that there are toxic fumes in Lauren’s office coming from the wallpaper glue.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Family Says Their Goodbyes in Emotional Episode Filled With Touching Performances

For anyone who has been watching the emotional Alzheimer’s storyline play out on General Hospital, Wednesday’s episode was a key moment in the storytelling and for the Corinthos family.  To say that the cast delivered in this episode is an understatement; everyone had their moments, and of course, chief among them, Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Mike’s (Max Gail) life is coming to an end as his body is shutting down from the disease.  Stella (Vernee Watson) comes to Mike’s room at Turning Woods and tells Sonny that Mike is waiting for permission to let go.  She explains to Sonny that Mike is torn between this world and the afterlife.   Stella helps Sonny prepare for the final moments of Mike’s life, dimming the lights, giving Sonny ice chips to put on his father’s lips, and for Sonny to put on some of Mike’s favorite music – jazz.   She also gets Mike a blanket because he is getting cold.  Then in a touching moment played to perfection by Vernee Watson, Stella says her own goodbye to Mike and hugs Sonny and tells him how grateful she was to know Mike.

Carly (Laura Wright) had been by Sonny’s side every step of the way in the final days of Mike’s life.  At one point in Mike’s room with Sonny, she has a dream where Mike tells her she is his daughter.  It was another heartbreaking moment – this time played beautifully by Laura Wright.  Earlier, Michael (Chad Duell) said goodbye to his grandfather and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) had also come to Turning Woods, as has Brando (Johnny Wactor) to be there for the end of Mike’s life and to support Sonny

Sonny tells Mike, (who can hear, but cannot truly respond as the disease continues to shut down his body), that he has made peace with what went down between them when he was a child.  He tells Mike, “I just want you to go in peace and go with love.”  Later, Sonny had a recollection seeing his father pray in the back of the church when he was a child, which sparked an idea for him.   Jason (Steve Burton) and Sonny know that Mike wants to be forgiven for his sins.

Then in the tearjerker, Father Ramos arrives to bless Mike and cleanse him from all of his sins, as Sonny, Carly, Michael and Josslyn witness it.

Afterwards, Jason realizes that Mike probably does not want to die in front of Sonny and tells Sonny to take a break, but Sonny does not want to – so Jason whispers to Mike that he should not worry that he will take care of Sonny. The two hope Mike will meet up with Morgan in heaven.

At the end of the episode, alone with his father, Sonny tells Mike not to be afraid, or to worry about him, and then remembers the night Mike walked out on him and his mother when he was a kid.  He says he knows his father always loved him … maybe too much.  We fade to black.  Maurice Benard’s work was again outstanding throughout these moments, making Sonny’s life-long pain, and love for this father, palpable.

As someone who went through this horrible disease with his mother, I can say, that GH played the beats of the story to perfection, honoring those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and the family members they leave behind.

So, what did you think of this emotional episode of GH and the performances by the cast? Comment below.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Anne Heche. Jesse Metcalfe & Chrishell Stause Make Their Ballroom Debuts; While Tyra Banks Bows As New Host

Season 29 of Dancing with the Stars got underway last night, and with the pandemic the changes were noticeable.

Judges seemed more than six feet apart at the table, gone was the Sky Box interviews, gone was the live band,  but we did get canned crowd applause and noise which was too over the top without any audience members truly in the ballroom.

Tyra Banks made her debut as the new host replacing Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, while Derek Hough took over Len Goodman’s spot at the judges table. With all of that; soap fans were intrigued to see how three of the contestants would do in the scoring with their first dance of the competition.

Anne Heche and dance partner Keo Motsepe (Cha-Cha):  Here we go – for pizazz and going for it … and doing well, we got to give it to Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marly Another World) although at times her foot work was off, she really sold this dance with her enthusiasm and spunk.  Judge Carrie Ann had high praise for Anne as a potential star on the dance floor, and the duo danced to Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start  Now, which we love. Judges’ Score: 18 out of 30

Photo: ABC

Jesse Metcalfe and dance partner Sharna Burgess (Quickstep):  Metcalfe (Ex-Dallas, Passions, and Desperate Housewives) looked intense on the dance floor and got some critique for his posture and foot work, but the quickstep is such a hard dance to pull off in the first place.  The duo danced to Stevie Wonder’s Part Time Lover.  And of note: Sharna fangirled out meting Metcalfe whom she loved as Miquel on Passions! Judges’ Score: 18 out of 30

Photo: ABC

Chrishell Stause and dance partner Gleb Savchenko (Tango): With mistakes that were noticeably caught by the judges, which they shared were about timing, footwork, and frame work, Chrishell (Ex-AMC, DAYS and Y&R) held it together and got through the dance in spite of it all.  She danced to Pink’s Raise Your Glass.  In a play on Stause’s Selling Sunset real estate gig and reality series, judge Bruno said Stause was “far from closing the deal” with that dance.  Judges’ Score: 13 out of 30.

At the top of the leaderboard after night one of the competition were: 18-year-old Skai Jackson with 21 points, as well as Justina Machado, then former ‘Bachlorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe with 20, along with Catfish creator and host Nev Shulman.  At the bottom of the score board was Tiger King’s Carole Baskin with 11 points.

Watch Anne, Jesse and Chrishell’s performances below.  Then let us know, what did you think of their first dance?  Who impressed you from the entire cast? What did you think of Tyra as Dancing with the Stars new host? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

General Hospital

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Let’s just make this official as we tweeted about it last week when these scenes aired on Tuesday.  And let’s just say, that Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) could very well receive another Daytime Emmy nomination next year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, if these moments are part of her reel.  LoCicero was previously nominated in 2015 in this category.

Now on to that performance that had everyone a-buzz on social media after it aired.  In the scenes, Robert (Tristan Rogers) has worked his WSB contacts to get Olivia to Geneva to secretly see her son, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), who is suffering from severe trauma and PTSD and is at this facility for treatment.  After traveling half way around the world to get there, with anticipation and wanting to hold her son and be there for him – when she arrives the doctor (Christopher Cousins) tells Dante his mother is here to see him, but Dante refuses to let that happen.

When the doctor tells Olivia that Dante will not open the door to his room to talk to his mom and come face-to-face with her, she goes into momma bear mode, releasing such heartache and anguish, just wanting to see Dante, but she is met with a steely shut door instead.  But as viewers saw, the scenes were made all the more poignant by the split screen; where Dante is on the other side of the door – heartbroken hearing his mother’s cries.  Dominic Zamprogna, who is always stellar, was also moving in these moments.

However, it was LoCicero’s ability to call up such deep rooted love and pain for her child, that any parent could relate to, which broke our hearts, rang so true, and showcased Lisa.

Later in the week, we also see how Liv was there for Robert in return  – and the two are now off on a mission of their own to find Holly (if she is indeed very much alive) which is sure to put a further wedge in her marriage to Ned (Wally Kurth).  That begs the questions, too.  How would you feel about a Robert and Olivia pairing…or would you be rooting for Olivia and Ned to work through their issues?

Through it all, it was Lisa LoCicero who grabbed our attention, brought out the hankies for all of us, and truly compelled the audience.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Lisa’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Lisa in these scenes with Dominic? In case you missed them, you can check them out below, then share your thoughts in the comment section.
