Daisy tells Sharon she went to Fairview under a fake name to escape from Ricky. Daisy is surprised when Sharon tells her that Ricky is dead. Sharon tells a suspicious Daisy that she is only staying at Fairview temporarily. Daisy tries to tell the doctors that she checked in to escape from Ricky, while Sharon pretends to have no idea who Daisy is. Tucker tries to visit Sharon but learns that he can’t see her until she is released. Sharon lies about her stealing to Dr. Laurents and claims she is just trying to prove that Victor’s family is wrong about her. Sharon tries to sleep in the ward to escape her stress and has a nightmare about the night of Faith’s birth. Later, Daisy pleads with Dr. Laurents to release her.

Paul and Heather are puzzled by why Ricky would’ve bought something as sentimental as the snow globe. Avery arrives and informs Paul that his trial date is fast approaching and that finding Ricky’s video is their first priority. Paul discovers Ricky’s flash drive hidden in the snow globe. Heather calls Michael so he can see the evidence. Michael tells them that they should have waited for him to get there before breaking the globe as they all sit down to watch the video. Everyone is stunned to find that the only video is of Ricky claiming that if something happens to him the authorities should look to Paul.

Tucker and Billy toast to the mutual benefits they’re enjoying because of Victor’s absence. In Los Angeles, Genevieve is able to cover for her lack of medical expertise when Victor asks her to help a dockworker with a broken arm. Victor promises that he’ll help the dockworker get his job back. Blaukowski, the bartender, dismisses Genevieve’s attempts to get a job and Sister Celeste suggests that Genevieve leave town. Victor rally’s the dockworkers to fight for their rights and to stand up for Norm who got hurt on the job. Victor takes Norm to the hospital while one of the other dock workers plots against him.

Victoria is excited to be running Newman Enterprises again, while Nick reminds her that Sharon is only temporarily out. Victoria rehires Nick and prepares a document that protects both of them from being fired without approval from the Board. Tucker is forced to sign the document so as not to blow his cover. Later, Nick tells Victoria that Newman stock is already on the rise. Billy returns and Victoria shares her worries about Victor’s absence. Billy prepares to tell her what he knows about Victor.

Paul, Heather, Avery, and Michael continue to watch the video of Ricky as he says that Paul was trying to make it look like he was crazy. Everyone regrets showing Michael the video as Ricky tells his audience that he just wanted to get to know Paul and that he hopes this video will show people the truth. Avery and Heather try to suggest that the video can’t be used in court but Michael tells them he can’t ignore it. Paul is devastated that Ricky would go to such lengths to ruin his life. Heather apologizes for calling Michael before they knew what was on the tape. Avery and Heather agree that if the video gets to a jury, it will mean bad news for Paul.

Lauren is confident that she has to come forward about her giving Paul the gun he used to kill Ricky. Michael is opposed to the idea and he tries to convince Lauren not to throw herself under the bus for Paul, knowing it may not be enough to save him. Jack senses that something is bothering Sarge. Sarge tells Jack he lost a friend in the World Trade Center eleven years earlier. Jack takes Sarge’s words to heart and invites his family over for dinner.

Billy starts to tell Victoria what he knows about Victor’s whereabouts, but she interrupts before he can share what he knows. Billy believes she may be better off without Victor in her life but Victoria says she would rather have her father back than her dream job at Newman. Later at the Abbott mansion, everyone is overjoyed when they see Jack only needing a cane to walk. Jack toasts his family as the Abbott clan celebrates Jack’s improvement. Victoria shares that she believes Victor will be back any day. Abby states that the Abbotts are a tough breed and Kyle tells Jack that he is very proud to be his son. Billy and Victoria head home and make love. Lauren and Gloria accuse Jeffrey of only wanting a relationship with Chelsea because of her money. Chelsea and Adam agree to keep her pregnancy a secret until the first trimester is over. Kevin and Chloe arrive and toast the success of their business with Adam and Chelsea. When Chelsea gets a wave of nausea and opts not to drink the champagne, Chloe’s suspicions about Chelsea being pregnant are confirmed. Later at Crimson Lights, Chloe spills the beans about Chelsea’s pregnancy. Jeffrey and Gloria decide to pay Chelsea a visit. Adam dismisses a call from a reporter who is looking for a comment about Sharon. Adam tells Chelsea he is glad that Nick and Victoria are dealing with Newman Enterprises as he just wants to focus on her. Gloria and Jeffrey drop by for a visit. Adam and Chelsea are surprised to see a tiny flicker of sincerity in Jeffrey. Back at their house, Kevin finds a note from Chloe saying she has a surprise for him. Chloe returns with a pizza and a new puppy.

Neil and Harmony joke about all the mishaps they keep having on their dates together. They invite Sarge to join them for their dinner. Harmony and Neil learn that Sarge does not have any kids and notice his somber attitude. Neil and Harmony discuss their history and when Harmony says something about where she is from, Sarge seems effected by it. As everyone is preparing to leave, Sarge confuses Harmony when he asks about Pittsburgh. He abruptly leaves as she sits wondering what he meant.

Summer notices an awkward moment between Phyllis and Nick as she leaves to meet Fenmore at Crimson Lights. Nick questions Phyllis about Ronan’s intentions. Kevin arrives and Nick apologizes that Kevin had to get dragged into the mess with Tim. Nick leaves to bring Summer her phone, while Phyllis tells Kevin about her fake affair with Ronan. They both are concerned that Michael is close to discovering the truth.

Michael doesn’t buy Ronan’s story about the affair and reiterates that all the evidence points towards Phyllis and Kevin. Michael updates Avery on the affair story as Fen arrives to borrow cash from Michael. Michael tells Avery that Ronan has never been the type of person to fall in love. Meanwhile, Beth is thrilled as she receives a package from Tim, while Ronan is on a call confirming that Beth got the package. Later, Michael meets with Kevin and pleads with him to tell him the truth for his and Chloe’s sake but Kevin keeps his secrets.  Ronan goes to see Phyllis and tells her that he sent Beth a plane ticket and money that she believes is from Tim. Phyllis is puzzled by why Ronan is going to such great lengths to protect her. She asks Ronan what his motives are for helping her but he dances around the real answer. Avery arrives and tells Phyllis she is doing terrible things to her marriage and Phyllis is bothered by her accusations. When Avery pushes the issue, Phyllis kicks her out.

At Crimson Lights, Nick offers to buy Fenmore and Summer concert tickets but Fen is nervous since Michael and Phyllis are at odds. Nick reminds them both that it is important to keep the people you care about close to you regardless of the circumstances. Fen tells Summer that she can talk to him about anything. Summer assumes something and demands to know what Fen is referring to. Fen confesses that he heard that Phyllis is having an affair with Ronan. Phyllis is stunned when Summer comes home and asks if she is cheating on Nick.

Nick remains closed off when Michael asks him about the affair. Michael says that he is only trying to help and that everyone is making things worse for themselves. Michael hears about Beth’s disappearance and is furious. Michael tells Ronan he is going to put a gag order on Beth before she does another interview. Avery arrives to discuss Paul but Michael is too focused on the mess with Phyllis. Nick questions Ronan as to why he is being so helpful if Phyllis and him are lying about the affair. Ronan tells Nick he is helping Phyllis because he wants to be with her.  Eden and Kyle catch up while Kevin and Chloe show them pictures of their new dog. Chloe asks Nick about Kevin’s partnership with Phyllis, while Nick is bothered that he has to keep up with Phyllis’ lies. At the Abbott mansion, Eden and Kyle open up with one another about their complicated history with their parents. Things heat up and Kyle takes Eden upstairs to his room. Later, Kevin tells Chloe he helped move Tim’s body. Chloe is upset that she also has to keep the secret and angrily walks out.

Summer is devastated when Phyllis tells her about the “affair”. Phyllis is mad that Michael allowed Fenmore to overhear his conversation. Summer is stunned to find out that Nick knows too. At Crimson Lights, Ronan confesses his feelings about Phyllis to a furious Nick. Ronan blocks Nick from punching him, as Nick warns him to stay away from Phyllis. Nick heads home as Summer storms out and they run into each other in the hallway. While Nick tries to stay calm about the situation, Summer runs out. Nick is livid that Phyllis put their daughter in this position. Phyllis explains that telling Summer the truth about Tim would be far worse than the lie she is telling. Nick tells Phyllis about Ronan’s confession and then says he is leaving to go and stay at the ranch.

At Crimson Lights, Fen tries to be supportive of Summer, but she wants to lash out and the two go running out on mission. Phyllis looks for Summer and runs into Billy. He tries to get a story out of her and she throws a drink into his face. Phyllis threatens to come after Billy if he mentions her or Summer on Restless Style TV. Later, Summer tries to spike her and Fen’s coffees with vodka but Ronan catches them. Ronan takes Summer back to the penthouse and tells Phyllis she should be grateful that he didn’t have Summer arrested.

In Los Angeles, Victor is wary of Genevieve but begins to let his guard down. He confesses that he feels like he has left people behind but cannot remember who. Genevieve calls Tucker and tells him that she thinks Victor may need help and is suffering from memory loss. Tucker tells her to continue what she is doing. Genevieve forgets her phone on the table in front of Victor.  At the Athletic Club, Nikki is thankful to see Jack out of his wheelchair. Jack tells Katherine and Nikki he thinks Victor may be with Genevieve who is also out of town. Nikki sees Ronan arrive and questions why he hasn’t had any leads on Victor. A distracted Ronan tells her to make an appointment. Katherine finds Genevieve’s phone number and gives it to Nikki. Nikki calls Genevieve’s phone but no one answers.

Victor questions Genevieve about the “Nikki Newman” that he saw on her caller ID, but she says she’s just a friend of hers. Later, Victor tries to rally the dock workers and one of them pulls Victor aside and tells him to stop causing trouble or someone will get hurt. Jack tells Tucker and Sofia about his purchasing Newman stock and his filing with the SEC. Sofia worries that Tucker will get in trouble for buying up too much stock. Nikki shares her concerns about Victor’s absence with Katherine. They leave as Katherine bumps into Tucker. She confesses that she wishes there was someway to know if Victor was alright, while Tucker continues to keep his secret about Victor’s whereabouts.

Victoria tells Billy that Jack is buying up Newman stock and wonders what his plans could be. Jack visits Victoria at Victor’s office and he tells her to watch out for Tucker. She thanks him for the heads up and informs him that she’ll be keeping an eye on him as well. Nick stops by and informs Victoria that he’ll be staying at the tack house. Later, Jack tells Billy about his conversation with Victoria and how he is confident that Victor will come back.

At the institution, Sharon has another bad dream about Faith and worries that her nightmares will cause Dr. Laurents to question her sanity. Dr. Laurents assures Sharon that he doesn’t intend to jump to any conclusions. Sharon tells him that there is no one more paranoid than Nick and Victoria and that she believes they’ve set her up. Dr. Laurents believes Sharon has a firm grasp on reality and Sharon asks him to release her so she can go run her company.

Ronan tells Phyllis about Summer’s attempts to drink. Phyllis tries to reprimand her, but Summer storms off. An angry Phyllis questions Ronan about what he told Nick. Ronan is honest about his feelings as Phyllis apologizes for freaking out. Phyllis calls Nick to tell him about Summer’s incident and that any other cop other than Ronan would’ve had her arrested. Phyllis apologizes to Ronan for lashing out at him as Daniel walks in. Daniel confronts Phyllis and lets her know that Summer told him what’s happening. He asks Phyllis if she plans on destroying her entire family.  Nick goes to work out at the club and runs into Nikki. She senses he is bothered and he tells her he is moving back to the ranch.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What’s Up With Elizabeth?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, finally moved the story of the haunting of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) along a bit, after it has been a very slow build for the audience. As it turns out, and with the new developments, it appears that Liz has been going in and out of a catatonic state, while sleeping walking.

With a tip from Violet (Jophielle Love), Finn (Michael Easton), who is chatting with Gregory (Gregory Harrison), recalls Liz was having trouble sleeping and was that she given a sleeping aid. He thinks he may be on to something so he decides to go to Liz’s house to talk to her.

Meanwhile, Liz comes to her house and tears Finn and Violet out of the picture that Violet drew, and then gets a scissors and starts cutting pieces off of the drawing, bit by bit.

Cameron (William Lipton) comes home and see his mother.  She does not respond to him and appears in a trance-like state. He is getting more upset by the moment, and then Finn arrives on the scene.

Finn is able to get the scissors from Liz, and also get her to snap out of her trance.  Liz talks with Finn and wonders what is happening? She doesn’t even remember how she got home.  When Cameron fills Liz in on what she was doing … cutting up the drawing and all … Finn tells Liz he believes she is the one who is haunting herself.

In tears, if what Finn is claiming is true, then it is she who is responsible for slashing her dress, setting fire to Franco’s studio, and hitting Chase over the head.  In that moment, a teary-eyed Liz recognizes that something is terribly wrong, saying, “What’s happening to me?”

Finn promises Liz they will get to the bottom of this as Cameron looks on.

So, what is happening to Liz and why? Is this just a case of another sleeping pill storyline on soaps, where someone does not recall their actions or where they are going in the middle of the night a la Nighttime Hope on DAYS? Is someone controlling Liz to make her do these things?  Is something else physically wrong with Liz causing her behavior? Share your thoughts on this storyline … and where you think this is all heading via the comment section below.

THIS IS US: Goodbyes and Connections; Rebecca Passes Away in Penultimate Episode

Tuesday night’s penultimate episode of This Is Us, brought the long-anticipated moment in the lives of the Pearson family, when their mother, Rebecca (Mandy Moore, the matriarch, the heart and soul of the family, dies due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease.  And, if come Emmy time, after all of the performances she gave this season, Mandy Moore, does not take home the Lead Actress in a Drama Series prize, something is amiss in the awards system.

That said, here we go.  I hope those who followed the Pearsons journey over six seasons had the hankies nearby for this.  In story, the focus was Rebecca’s passing, while meeting a new family, and then as viewers trying to figure out how this interconnects throughout the episode; something the show has stayed true to throughout its run; with a payoff of how they tell a themed-story when the sum of its parts is revealed.

Courtesy/NBC

As Rebecca takes her final turn on this earth, everyone is notified the end is near and to say their goodbyes. While Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin  (Justin Hartley) were present, Kate (Chrissy Metz) was in London trying to get back to her mom.  She then receives a devastating call from her brothers that Rebecca is running out of time.

When Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) goes to say her goodbye to Rebecca, in tears, she tells Rebecca that she does not have to worry.  She will take good care of her son, Randall.  While the family is gathered and trying to just hang and be with each other through tragedy, when all the noise stops and everyone leaves for the night, it’s just brothers Kevin and Randall who go sit with their mother in heartbreaking and realistic scenes for anyone who has gone through the death of a loved one due to this horrific disease.

Courtesy/NBC

To illustrate what is going on in the mind of Rebecca in her final hours, a younger version of herself is on a train, which brings into play how she loved train rides with her own father years ago. Taking her to the afterlife, Rebecca is guided through the cars by none other than William (Ron Cephas Jones).  She also spends time having a drink with the bartender, who turns out to be the doctor (Gerald McRaney) who saved her life and delivered her children. He recounted that fateful night, when Rebecca lost one of her triplets.  As Rebecca and William get to the caboose, back in the present, it’s morning.

Now, Rebecca is still alive but waiting for someone, which, of course, is her daughter, Kate.  As Randall and Kevin look on, an emotional Kate arrives and runs to her mother’s bedside, and holding Rebecca’s hand, tells her how much she loves her.  Cutting back to Rebecca’s journey on the train, she says to William, “This is quite sad, isn’t it, the end?” Willam replies: “That’s not the way I see it, if something makes you sad when it ends, it must have been pretty wonderful when it was happening. You will see that the end is not sad, Rebecca, it’s just the start of the next incredibly wonderful thing.”

Courtesy/NBC

It’s then, that Rebecca lets go and passes away with the Big Three all at her bedside.  Back to the train, Rebecca goes to the caboose lays down on a bed, and is met, in bed, by her beloved Jack (Milo Ventimiglia). In the present, Randall had whispered to his mom shortly before his death, “You tell him, hey”, and so when Rebecca lays down next to Jack, she says “hey”.

The other element to the episode was the new family we had never met before.  After a car accident, one of the sons, Marcus. is taken to the hospital in critical condition.  In the present, we think Marcus is the grown-up boyfriend of Deja, especially after she reveals to Randall that she is pregnant.

In the flashback, Marcus’ father, Kenny played by Dulé Hill, bumps into Jack at a vending machine at the hospital and we realize we are back in time when Jack went to the hospital following the Pearson family home fire.  Turns out, that Jack and Marcus were being treated by the same doctor, Dr. Spencer (Bill Irwin).  While Marcus survived after flatlining, that is when Jack suddenly didn’t, and died.  We later learn Malik turns out to be Deja’s baby daddy and boyfriend, and Marcus grows up to become a top researcher in Alzheimer’s disease and wins an award for his accomplishments.  The person who handed him the award was none other than This Is Us director and executive producer, Ken Olin.

So, what did you think of the penultimate episode of This Is Us? Did you reach for the hankies? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Photo: JPI

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

Courtesy/NBC

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
