Everyone gathers for a farewell barbeque in honor of Chance. Nina apologizes to Chance for being so difficult these past few days. Sharon joins Sam and Piper at the San Pueblo fair and notices Adam across the way.  Heather announces to Paul that she will be heading to New York to help Michael coordinate things for Newman Enterprises. Nina and Philip are happy to be at the barbeque to support Chance together. Paul and Heather arrive and Nina reminds Heather that she is unwelcome. Chance takes Heather inside to try to get some closure. Adam and Nick meet with Bob from the New Mexico forensic office, and Diane shows up. Nick begins to investigate the crash. Adam can’t stomach the crash site and decides to go check out the festival until Nick is finished, rejecting Diane’s offer to tag along. Kay bids Chance farewell. He changes into his Army Combat Uniform, and emotions roar as Murphy raises both the Blue Star and American flags.

­On the plane home, Diane begins to reminisce about how she and Nick were friends. Nick states that she proved her motives were always about money when she married Victor. They begin to bicker but turbulence catches both of them off guard, and she instinctually grabs Nick’s arm. Once on the ground she returns to her suite and Nick pays her a surprising visit.

Sharon edges towards Adam but Bob approaches him. She overhears Bob inform Adam they can rule Sharon’s cause of death as an accident. Bob leaves, giving Sharon a perfect opportunity to move in but she is stopped once again. Colin informs Caleb that Lily finally turned herself into the hospital and the twins are with Neil. Caleb relays the new info to Genevieve, frustrated that this wasn’t in their plans. Lily confesses to Neil how terrified she is of the tricks her mind is playing on her. Colin and Jill arrive to show their support. Lily privately embraces and thanks Colin. Adam is stopped by the same male carjacker who robbed Sharon, and he explains that his wife has been missing since that night. As Adam arrives back at the suite, he is met with a big surprise. Caleb insists that he and Genevieve need to accelerate their plan.   ­Chloe is adamant about continuing her custody battle against Billy despite Kevin’s lack of support. She meets with Landon Young, an attorney who is assigned to her case. As Nikki takes a seat at the bar, Victor approaches and explains he wants to make it very clear that Abby was not driving the evening Tucker was hit. Nikki doesn’t understand why Victor insists on defending Abby. The bartender interrupts their escalating argument with a special delivery. Nikki states that she didn’t expect Victor to remember her birthday and hotly exits. Billy and Rafe return from their talk with the judge. Billy explains to Victoria he made it clear that Phyllis wrote the blog and that she was immediately fired. Kevin arrives to visit Lucy. Billy gets an alert on his cell and he discovers that Phyllis has hacked into the blog and written yet another post.  Nikki’s liquid courage gets the best of her as she enters an AA meeting and begins belligerently belittling Deacon. Deacon pays an important visit to Victor, and Victor decides to lend a helping hand. Victoria confronts Phyllis about her blog post on Restless Style. Chloe overhears the two women arguing and stands up for Phyllis, which enrages Victoria even more. Daisy reads a print out of Phyllis latest online post on a bus.

­Ashley sadly collects her belongings as Kay and Paul enter, unaware of her presence. She overhears Kay and Paul discussing their search for Tucker’s long lost son. She shows herself and reveals Tucker never mentioned he had a child. Victor encourages Nikki to join him at Billy and Victoria’s house for the birthday lunch they have prepared. Victoria informs Billy and Nick that because Phyllis broke the gag order yet again, Rafe has advised Daniel and Lucy not to move in above the garage. Nikki arrives with Victor and everyone learns that Nikki is checking into rehab again. Cane is becoming impatient with Genevieve’s plan. Genevieve insists they must wait for Colin to try to flee for Australia with the twins. Cane worries that leaving the twins, Lily, and Jill exposed to Colin is only endangering them more. After a day with Jill and the twins, Colin takes steps to move his own plan along. Devon visits Lily at the mental institution. He exits as Colin arrives, and Colin updates Lily on the twins. Lily mentions she hopes the twins can one day visit Australia. Ashley sneaks into Tucker’s room to be by his side when suddenly Tucker’s monitors begin to go haywire. ­Abby and Deacon discuss her attending an AA meeting, and Jack and Michael arrive. Jack receives a call from a distressed Ashley, who was escorted by hospital security for violating her restraining order. Kay expresses to Victoria her untrusting feelings toward Ashley, and offers her the helm at Jabot. Victoria discusses the offer with Billy and Nick. Michael and Jack find Ashley in Tucker’s hospital room. Spencer enters and takes Ashley into custody. Phyllis makes a plea for Michael’s help with Lucy’s custody case. The doctor informs Kay and Abby that Tucker is stable. When the doctor exits, Abby and Kay have a discussion about who is to blame for Tucker’s accident, leaving Abby feeling even more guilt-ridden. Victor and Nikki arrive at the rehab facility together. Before he leaves the facility, Victor gives her a beautiful bracelet.­ Billy and Victoria are ecstatic when the judge grants full custody of Lucy to Daniel. Phyllis feels helpless. Little do they know, someone has arrived to claim Lucy.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Trevor Donovan, Wayne Brady, Daniel Durant & Gabby Windey Impress Judges On ‘Elvis Night’

In the second episode of Dancing with the Stars new season exclusively on Disney+, it was ‘Elvis Night’ and the couples put on a show for the judges performing to songs by ‘The King of Rock and Roll.”

Before the stars and their pro partners hit the ballroom floor, hosts Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro, revealed that since dancer, Daniella Karagach tested positive for Covid-19 Sunday night.  Therefore, her celebrity partner Joseph Baena had to mask up through the evening and perform his planned routine with a temporarily replacement, Alexis Warr. As well, a few others in the cast who were noted to be in close proximity of Karagach, also wore masks during the live show and their performances.

Here’s a rundown of a few of the performances that wowed the judges for various reasons.

Trevor Donovan (ex-Days, 92010) and Emma Slater – The duo danced the Rumba to the Elvis Classic “Always on My Mind.” Donovan, who keeps letting us know in the pre-package that he is not comfortable as a dancer, did a complete 180 from opening night and delivered what the judges deemed a very sexy routine with Emma. The judges (Carrie Ann, Bruno, Len and Derek) were impressed by Trevor’s hip rotation, his arm extensions through the dance, and of course his abs! Derek Hough said it best in his feedback to Donovan following the routine, “Remember when you were scared of dance? You love dance.” Score: 30 out of 40

Wayne Brady (ex-The Bold and the Beautiful, Let’s Make a Deal) and Witney Carson –  Dancing the Jive to “Burning Love”, Brady, who is great at impersonations anyway, brought some of the Elvis moves, facial expressions and ticks to the routine. In the pre-package, Wayne revealed he has trouble with one of his knees. The performance was highly-entertaining given the choreography and closed the show.  The judges told Wayne to pace himself and protect his knees, because he is a wonderful dancer and they want to see him make it through the entire season. Score: 30 out of 40

Gabby Windey (The Bachelotette) and Val Chmerkovskiy – The dance duo took to the floor to perform a classic Viennese Waltz to “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” During the pre-package, Windey, who is also a former Denver Broncos cheerleader, felt she was ‘lost in space” doing so many twirls, but she clearly got it all under control and with Val by her side, her new fiancé Eric Schwer in the house. Val and Gabby delivered a stellar performance.  The ending of the routine was punctuated by Windey walking over to Schwer, who entered the edge of the dance floor, to give him a smooch. Score: 32 out of 40

Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart – Taking on Elvis’ “King Creole”, this dance duo performed the Jive.  It is amazing to witness from the pre-package to the actual performance, how Britt communicates with Daniel, who is deaf, and how Durant is able to feel the vibrations, watch Stewart’s face and inhabit a character so well, without barely any missteps. The most noticeable, and the most difficult challenge posed to Durant, is dancing in the side-by-side sections where precision/synch is always favored upon by the judges. In the DWTS audience were Durant’s CODA co-stars, Oscar Winners Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur, rooting hm on. It was an impressive performance! Of note: how much did we love Durant’s two moms showing up in rehearsal and dancing some moves from the routing with him! Score: 29 out of 40

WWE SMACKDOWN: Roman Reigns Officially Makes Sami Zayn ‘Honorary Uce’ In Heart-Stopping Moment

Talk about your soap opera and great performances!  Last Friday’s WWE Friday Night Smackdown on Fox featured what could go down as a classic opening segment involving The Head of the Table/WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns and tag-along member of the ‘Bloodline’, Sami Zayn.

With the entire Bloodline in the ring and present (The Usos, Solo Sikoa, Paul Heyman, Reigns and honorary member, Zayn) it set the stage for a potentially dangerous situation for Zayn.  Even though Sami is a heel, the fans were in Zayn’s corner for this every step of the away, if you just listened to the pop from the crowd.

First, Reigns demanded for Solo Sikoa to acknowledge him, since the youngest members of the Usos is the new enforcer of the Bloodline. Solo did just that in short order, and as the group was preparing to make their ring exit, Zayn stopped The Bloodline as he wanted his chance to acknowledge Reigns as his Tribal Chief, too.  That prompted Reigns to question Zayn as to why he was up in their business and wearing the ‘Bloodline’ t-shirt.

Suddenly, it became apparent that Zayn was going to be set-up to be the victim of a beatdown by the family. The moments were so tense that you honestly could not have guessed which way this was going to go – but things were looking bleak for Sami.

Reigns verbally assaulted Zayn for hanging around and wearing ‘The Bloodline’s’ shirt. Roman ordered Zayn to take off the shirt as Zayn’s enemy number one, Jey Uso, demanded the same thing of him.  Next, Uso ripped the t-shirt off Zayn and the audience was scared for Sami.  However, Reigns instead presented Zayn with a new t-shirt making him officially an “Honorary Uce”.  For those who wondered, “uce” is the Samoan slang term for “brother”.  Touched and relieved, Zayn celebrated the moment with Jimmy Uso, Sikoa and then, even hugging Reigns, while Jey Uso looked on mad-as-all-get-out.

The story arc was played brilliantly by Reigns who can play disingenuous like nobody’s business, and Zayn, who can play drama and comedy as the “Bloodline” wannabe.

There are several story angles that could stem from this – one being the obvious – a feud between Jey Uso and Zayn- plus, just how long Sami will be included in the Bloodline, before it all goes south on him.

You can watch the segment below, and then a hilarious video posted on Twitter by Zane on Sunday to Kelly Clarkson’s “A Moment Like This.”

So, did you think the Bloodline was going to turn on Sami? What did you think of Zayn and Reigns work in the opening segment of WWE Friday Night Smackdown? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Diane Poised to Be Attacked by the ‘Hook’; Elizabeth Knew Finn’s Late Wife, Reiko?

On Friday’s cliffhanger of General Hospital, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) looks to be the next victim of the mysterious ‘hook’.  We won’t know till Monday how it plays out, but things are not looking good for the legal eagle in a preview for the airshow.

In story, Diane dropped by the garage that Brando worked at, looking for Sasha (Sofia Mattson).  At first, she bumps into Sonny (Maurice Benard) who is not pleased with Diane for trying to take him down on the witness stand during Nina’s hearing.  She shares she was helping her clients Michael and Willow as best she could.  Sonny says it was personal for him and he can’t forget what happened.

Next, Diane tells Sasha that she’s serving as her interim lawyer since Martin is unavailable and is there to discuss her guardianship. Sasha is scared that she’ll wind up behind bars now that Brando is gone.  Diane assures Sasha she will file a continuance to keep the process going to keep her out of jail. Diane asks where the guardianship papers may be, and Sasha tells her to check Brando’s office.

Dex (Evan Hofer), who is looking suspicious (but it has to be a red-herring, right?) is going to take Sasha home per Sonny’s orders, but Sonny also tells Dex to lock up when Diane is finished with her business.

Later, Diane in the dark, goes to Brando’s office to find the guardianship papers. Next, a figure appears in the doorway with the hook.  This time the ‘Hook’ looks to be of smaller stature leading many on social media that the person behind the violence could be Esme.

In other developments, Elizabeth Webber’s (Rebecca Herbst) convoluted storyline, just got even more convoluted.  Liz looks at the photo she’s drawn and suddenly has a flashback revealing the woman’s face at the bottom of the stairwell.  She then tells Finn (Michael Easton) that after her recent session with Kevin, she recalls seeing the woman’s face. Conveniently, Finn was just talking about his late wife, Reiko with Gregory (Gregory Harrison).  So, when Liz talks to Finn, she sees a woman’s face on Finn’s phone.

Finn explains that the picture is of his late wife, Reiko.  He tells Liz he is working on a case that reminded him of Reiko, and he mentions being in the Mariana Islands with her. That makes Liz frantic and she decides to leave. Next, she heads home, where she locates a photo of her and her sister, Sarah. The photo is titled, “Elizabeth and Sarah, Mariana Islands, 1997.”

So, do you think Diane will perish or survive the attack by the ‘Hook’? Who is the ‘Hook”? What on earth is going on with Liz’s storyline? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below.  But first, vote in our latest ‘Michael’s Poll’ below by voting on which character is the culprit behind all of the bloodshed?
