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.

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.

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.

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, 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.

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.

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.

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.
