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. Nikki confesses her worries about Victor’s absence, but Nick tries to reassure her that Victor will come home when he is ready. Later, Nikki asks Billy to help her find Victor.

Victoria puts the stockholders at ease as Billy texts Genevieve to check in on Victor. Billy heads out while Nick tells Victoria how Phyllis continually refuses to fully trust him and that he doesn’t know if he can continue to put up with it. Summer arrives and tries to blame her bad behavior on Phyllis. Nick reminds her of the trouble that Cassie got into with underage drinking. Summer is angry that she is the only one being punished as Nick takes her back to Phyllis’s penthouse.  Nick and Summer head back to the penthouse as Daniel leaves in frustration. Summer runs upstairs as Phyllis tries to reach out to an angry Nick. Nick tells Phyllis all of his frustrations about her lack of trust in him and tells her that he still plans on moving out. Summer tells Phyllis that if Nick moves out, she will never forgive her. Heather comforts Daniel about his frustrations with his family. Later, Daniel and Heather make love and he tells her that together they can get through anything.

Victor warns Moran, the dockworker not to threaten him. Sister Celeste tells Victor not to get his hopes up about changing things at the docks. Victor’s instinctive knowledge of business affairs startles him. Sister Celeste warns against taking action but Victor is fired up by the cause. Moran overhears their conversation and plots against Victor. Later, Victor is found beaten up. He tells Genevieve and Sister Celeste that he doesn’t want to go to the hospital in fear that his past will come pack to haunt him. Sister Celeste watches as Genevieve helps Victor with his hand. Genevieve and Sister Celeste try to get Victor to leave town for his own safety but he refuses.

Sharon tells Dr. Laurents she has a child that needs her and a company to run. He tells Sharon that he needs to follow protocol before he can release her. He exits as Daisy begs Sharon to tell the doctor who she really is. Sharon reluctantly admits that Daisy is telling the truth about who she really is. Dr. Laurents leaves as he tells a frustrated Daisy that he’ll speak to her during their session. Daisy tells Sharon that the doctors are trying to give her meds but she hasn’t been taking them. Daisy gets her fingerprints taken to confirm her identity and begs Sharon to tell Daniel that she is alive once Sharon is released. Daisy takes a bunch of pills with the hope of being sent to the hospital to escape.

Nick goes back to the office to see Victoria and updates her on the situation with Summer. They are both stunned when Sharon arrives and declares that she is back.  Ronan receives news that Daisy is alive!

THE BACHELOR Season Premiere: Is Matt James Destined to be the Best in Franchise History? The First Impression Rose Is Given Out

On Monday’s premiere episode of the highly-anticipated seasons of The Bachelor, viewers finally saw groundbreaking lead ‘Bachelor’ Matt James in action.

James, became the first black ‘Bachelor’ in the reality-dating competition 25-year history.

It kicks-off for viewers getting an introduction into Matt’s upbringing: He’s biracial and was raised by a single mother in North Carolina. He played college football at Wake Forest University, lives in New York City and works in real estate, and volunteers a lot of his time with under-privileged children.

As pressure began to mount (right before the ladies drove up in their limos to meet Matt), he asked to talk to host, Chris Harrison, because some things were weighing heavily on him including: not wanting to let people down, knowing this was a moment in TV history.  Matt expressed to Chris: “I don’t want to piss off black people, I don’t want to piss off white people,” trying to figure how to navigate the season.

Throughout the episode, Matt’s nerves, honesty, and a request of himself and to the women, to be open through this journey, seem to serve him well, which left viewers with a solid first impression of him during the premiere.  He also led the women in a prayer before the first cocktail party kicked-off!

Speaking of the women, there are 32 this season that are vying for the final rose – the largest contingent ever.  Everyone was said to have quarantined for weeks and took four COVID-19 tests with hopes of getting to get up close and personal with Matt.  The entire season moved to a an expansive mansion and set-up in Pennsylvania, not Hollywood.

While there were so many cringe-worthy moments of the women trying to impress Matt when they first meet him … let’s not forget Katie with the vibrator dubbed “MJ”, or  Victoria who walks around calling herself “The Queen” and being the most annoying… we could already sense some possible connections with the others.

Making ‘Bachelor’ history also was contestant, Abigail Heringer.  She is the first deaf contestant to ever appear on the franchise.   Matt was very taken with Abigail in the season premiere with her beauty and her honesty.  Right off the bat, she admitted to him that she was deaf.  Later, during the cocktail party and some one-on-one time, she also revealed that her older sister is deaf as well. Both were born with congenital hearing loss, and both underwent cochlear implantation surgery

Matt then shares his first real on-screen kiss with Abigail, and next went searching for the first impression rose, while all the other gals got jealous.  He gave the rose to Abigail.   Next, it was time for the first rose ceremony and we can’t understand (well, we can .. they need someone to stir the pot) why “The Queen” Victoria received a rose and is still in the running, but that’s another story.  Some potential picks such as Bri, Mari, Chelsea and Kristin could be in it for the long-haul, but we shall see.

The episode concluded with another promo of all the tears and drama from the gals and Matt as this season continues next Monday night.

So, what was your first impression of Matt as The Bachelor? Abigail as the women who received the first impression rose? Who do you think will win Matt’s heart in the end? Any early predictions? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE Season Finale: Zac Puts A Ring On It As Tayshia Gets Her Man

The pandemic version of the hit reality-dating series franchise, The Bachelorette, had a few major twists.  First, that in the middle of the season the lead ‘Bachelorette’ had to be switched out, when Clare Crawley found love early with Dale Moss and exited the show.

Enter Tayshia Adams, who then started her own journey with the men who were still part of Clare’s season and a few others brought in to add to the mix.

The entire production had to be quarantined and shot in one location in Palm Springs, California.  Even the hometown dates were in Palm Springs as family members from the men still in the competition were brought there.  So with limited locales, the season was not always big and splashy, but in the end, and on the second night of the two-night season finale, you could not have asked for a sweeter ending and proposal between Zac Clark and Tayshia.

So how did Tayshia and Zac end up together?  Here’s a brief rundown from last night’s two-hour season finale:

With Ben back in the mix and asking for a second chance, (after he could not tell Tayshia the last time that he loved her, he did so now), she invites him to the rose ceremony, where Ivan and Zac, who were the two last men standing, were in for a shock.

At the ceremony, Tayshia asks to talk to Ivan privately. She takes him aside and tells him she has concerns over religion from their overnight date, so much so that she does not think they can go any further and she sends him home.  That means, Tayshia gives her two roses to her finalists: Zac and Ben,

On her last date with Zac prior to the final rose ceremony, Tayshia is not herself when the couple go to a dance class together.  Her anxiety is getting the best of her and it was hard to tell if she was just not feeling Zac anymore, as she is now for Ben, or if she is just getting jitters over the whole process. Later, away from the dancing, Zac and Tayshia have a heart-to-heart, where she is worried what happens if something changes between them, (since she was previously divorced, as was he) and that he does not want her anymore?  Zac said calmly, “No matter what, I’m not going anywhere.”  That helped put Tayshia’s mind at ease, somewhat!

Next, she has made a decision to tell Ben, it’s over between them.  She sits him down and tells him she has stronger feelings for Zac.  Ben shares, “I was excited to be back, I was really hopeful that we would be together.  When you love somebody, you want them to be happy.”  So with that, he realizes it’s time to pack it up, sharing with the cameras that he believed their lives would have been so good together.

Zac is choosing an emerald diamond to give Tayshia from Neil Lane (of course, at this juncture, he has no idea that Ben has been sent home).  Then, we see both Zac and Tayshia getting ready for the big proposal day.  Will she accept Zac’s proposal … doubts swirling through her head and all?

As the final rose ceremony began, Zac delivered a heart-tugging speech which included: “The first conversation we ever had by our fountain, we talked about how everything happens for a reason. I came here because I was supposed to meet you, I came here because I was supposed to fall in love with you. Nothing has ever felt so right in my entire life. I love you, Tayshia. We spoke of the importance of loyalty, and I will always be loyal to you.”

Tayshia finally and fully let her guard down and shared to Zac; “I know that I told you that I love you, but it’s more than that. It’s this wild, wild love that I’ve tried to come up with so many reasons to not believe, and you have truly made me believe that there doesn’t have to be flaws, and that I deserve love with a man who won’t run away. I love you, Zac Clark.”

As Tayshia is sobbing as Zac gets down on one knee, she says “Yes” to his proposal, and to make it official she gives Zac the final rose which he accepts. Next, they ride off into the sunset in a symbolic cardboard taxi to New York City where Zac lives.

On Wednesday, Tayshia and Zac made their first TV appearance together since their engagement four months ago.  They told Good Morning America that they were looking forward to dating and taking it one step at a time, and that Tayshia will be bi-coastal for now, but spending time on the east coast with Zac over the holidays.

So, happy that Tayshia chose Zac? Share you thoughts on this unpredictable season and last night’s episode via the comment section below.

Y&R’s Jason Thompson Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, daytime drama offered up some stellar performances.  We had General Hospital’s Sydney Miykala (Trina) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus) being given some very emotional material and playing the heck out of it, and we had The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson in what was to be his third standalone episode during his run as Billy Abbott.  Scenes from his last standalone episode helped win Jason the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Award at the Daytime Emmys this past June.

While there has been a very mixed-bag of reviews from fans of the writing of this standalone episode, one thing remains true –  that if given the ball, Thompson will bring the complexities needed to it, make it work, and in-turn make the audience feel the deep emotional pain within Billy.  And that was on full display in one key scene that locked up his Power Performance of the Week honors.

In the set-up, this time Billy is in the slammer contemplating his life while trying to rest and is hit with a series of dream/nightmare sequences in which he is emotionally tortured by many family members, enemies, and friends for his consistently being a screw-up, or so they like to say.  The one person in the episode who stands by Billy’s side is Lily (Christel Khalil).

During the episode, as Billy jumped from different locations within Genoa City, he grew more hopeless given his situation.  However, then he is visited by his late daughter Delia (Sophie Pollano) in the grown-up teenage version.  This is where Thompson broke hearts, playing guilt, loss, and despair.  He tells Delia if he could take one day back to do over again, it would be the night he left her alone for a few minutes to get ice-cream in the convenient store, and she wandered out in the street after her dog, only to be fatally hit by a car driven by Adam.  In this scene, it was Jason at his best, and surely a scene that should be used for his Emmy reel in 2021. What made it all the more notable is that Jason was not even playing the character of Billy back then, but you believed every heartbreaking second of his talk with his daughter about what Billy experienced the the night of her death and for years after.

Two other moments were also stand-outs in the episode.  When Victor (Eric Braeden) comes to see Billy behind bars and taunts him every which way to Sunday.  It was hard to know if that was real or imagined, but both Eric Braeden and Thompson chewed the scenery with that showdown.

Later in the episode, Billy is shocked to be transported to the police station to where his now teenage son, Johnny is in trouble with the law, and Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) is detaining and questioning him.  Billy realizes he has to fight for his freedom as he can’t leave his family in disarray, or let himself or Lily down again.

Billy Abbott continues to be an oh-so-flawed character, which gives Thompson opportunities to shine and play all the beats to perfection.
