After hearing her son pronounced dead, Nina attacks Ronan who doesn’t defend himself. Paul stops her as Owen tells Meeks to place Ronan under rest and Ronan is caught off guard. Owen and Meeks tell Ronan that he is going down for Chance’s murder because it is his word against theirs. Nearby, Chloe, Heather and Nina are devastated over the loss of a man they all loved. Nina confronts Ronan who tells her that he is her son and he has known the truth for years, just as Chris arrives and tries to explain herself to Nina but Nina doesn’t want to hear any of it.  At Billy and Victoria’s, Billy asks Michael to go to the police station with him but Michael, suspecting that Victor had a hand in Victoria’s arrest says he can’t so Vance steps up and offers Billy his services. Billy and Vance leave, and Nikki tells Nick to go to Victoria while she deals with Victor. At the police station, Vance tells Victoria, Billy and Nick that Victoria is the only defendant named in the charges. Victoria can’t believe that Victor would do this to her but Nick and Billy are certain. Later, as Victoria is sent off to have her mug shot taken, Chloe comes in crying and Billy doubly freaked out thinking something happened to Delia. Chloe tells him that Chance is dead and Billy is stunned. At Gloworm, Jack tells Ashley that Victor may have done them a huge favor when he had Victoria arrested and now they may be able to get their hands on Beauty of Nature. Meanwhile, Nikki is furious when she confronts Victor about having Victoria arrested. Victor tells Nikki that Victoria will thank him one day for stopping the wedding but Nikki stuns him when she tells him that his plan failed and Victoria and Billy made it through their vows after all. Later, Nikki tells Victor that he was wrong about what Billy feels for their daughter and goes on to say that no one in their family will ever make the mistake of trusting him ever again. Meanwhile, Nick stops by Gloworm to tell everyone about Chance. Heather confronts Ronan about what really happened at the warehouse but he asks her if he should have died for Chance, saying it was self-defense. He asks her if she would died for him and Heather answers yes. Meanwhile, Nina rushes into the Chancellor estate and everyone sees her state and Paul is forced to tell them that Chance died while trying to break up a drug deal. Phillip asks Paul to let her go to Nina as the rest of the family tries to digest the news. Christine arrives to talk to Nina but Nina refuses to see her. Billy supports Chloe until she decides to move off to talk to Owen who tells Heather he is prosecuting Ronan himself. Victoria arrives and asks what is going on and Billy tells her about Chance. They try to lighten the mood by closing their vows with a kiss. Meanwhile, Christine tries to explain her actions to Paul but he tells her that Nina needed the truth from her and now it is too late. Billy finally comes to confront Victor about what he is doing to hurt Victoria but Victor tells Billy that one day when Delia tells him that she has fallen in love with a man like Billy that he won’t do everything in his power to stop it. Victor promises to continue to come after Billy as long as Victoria remains his wife. After the events of the day, Nick and Phyllis manage to come to an understanding about their relationship and Summer.  As the dirty cops celebrate Chance’s demise, Owen isn’t as thrilled while Ronan is still around. Meanwhile, Nina finally confronts Chris about keeping Ronan’s secret but when she realizes that Chris can’t say anything fix her pain she tells Chris to leave and rushes to Paul for comfort. Chris is heartbroken for her friend and her part in causing her pain.

Cane and Lily have their hands full with the twins but when Jill calls Cane with the news about Chance’s death, Cane tells her that he will be right there. Meanwhile, Christine encourages Heather to be there to support Nina. As Nina tries to deal with Chance’s death, Phillip tells her that someone from the military is there to see her. Later, Cane arrives at the mansion to give his condolences and while they are talking, Phillip urges Cane to stay away from Australia for his family’s sake as much as his own. Abby calls Jack and starts to panic thinking about what Victor will do to her after sending Victoria to jail just for daring to get married. Meanwhile, Victor tells his banker that he wants Abby’s trust dismantled by the end of the day. Billy picks Victoria up at the police station and Victoria tells him that she needs to face Victor alone, even after Billy tells her about his confrontation with Victor last night. Later, Victor promises Victoria that he will make the charges go away as long as she agrees to end her marriage to Billy. Meanwhile, Abby literally has a panic attack while meeting with Jack about going up against Victor but Jack manages to calm her down and gets her to agree to continue with the lawsuit.

Daniel stops by to check on Lily and the twins and they end up chatting about Abby and Cane and how unexpectedly great life is right now. Later, Daniel tries to make Abby see that Victor won’t back down just because a member of his family could end getting hurt in the cross-fire between him and Jack. When Owen and a bunch of cops show up at the Chancellor Mansion with a search warrant Nina refuses to let them go through Chance’s things, blaming him for Chance’s death. Owen tells Nina and Chance’s family that he is investigating Chance’s involvement in the drug ring and he and cops move to Chance’s room. Christine arrives and although Paul doesn’t want to see her, Phillip embraces her. Nina and Jill are crushed and furious as they watch the police rip through Chance’s things so callously. Victoria refuses to leave the man she loves and Victor shows her a dossier on Billy’s past but Victoria tells him she knows all about it and that Victor is no longer welcome in her life or the life of her children. Later, Jill goes to see Victor and tells him that she has lost Chance and she doesn’t want to lose Billy too and asks him if he really wants to risk losing his daughter and his grandchild for good. After Jill leaves, Victor makes a call and says that he was responsible for the bribe, not Victoria. Meanwhile, Victoria and Billy happily get their wedding band tattoos. Phillip doesn’t blame Chris because he understands what a burden secrets can be but tells her that she can’t go back and change things either and she can’t bring Chance back. Meanwhile, Nina battles with what to do about Chance’s burial. Cane tells Lily about Phillip trying to stay strong for his family and asks her about avoiding going to Australia for a while but lies to Lily about the real reason. However, Lily and Cane are unaware that there is someone watching them. Later, Heather stops by to see Nina, Paul and Phillip that she was reinstated and that she asked to prosecute Ronan herself. Nina says that she hopes Ronan goes to prison for the rest of his life. Owen comes in and tells them that he may have found a link to Ronan and Chance and the drug ring and they are all outraged. Meanwhile, Christine confronts Ronan. Victor is stunned when his banker tells him that Vance has an injunction barring Victor from dismantling Abby’s trust. Meanwhile, Abby tells Jack that she wants out of the lawsuit.

While getting ready for Chance’s wake Victoria gets a shocking phone call from Vance. At the ranch, Victor tells Nikki that he called the D.O.J. and told that he was responsible for the Japanese bribe. Nikki hopes that it isn’t too late to reunite their family. Meanwhile, Abby tells Jack that she can’t go up against Victor because Jack can’t guarantee they will win and Victor is ruthless. Later, Meggie continues to try and spike Nikki’s drinks. In front of Tucker, Neil and Sofia have yet another argument about work just as Malcolm arrives. Tucker tells Neil and Sofia that he has a project in New Orleans that he would like them to work on together, although it is clear they don’t get along. After Tucker leaves, Malcolm tells Neil that if he has a problem with him to address it with Malcolm and not to use Sofia again. Later, Sofia asks Malcolm to let her fight her own battles. Later, Sofia asks Neil for some middle ground and a chance to find solutions to problems he finds in her work before he takes it Tucker. Neil agrees and wonders if they might even one day be friends. Kevin tries to comfort a distraught Chloe over Chance’s death, pushing her to go to his wake. Meanwhile, Nina and Jill have a moment of closeness as Jill praises the way Nina raised Chance. At Chance’s wake, Billy and Victoria are touched when Jill welcomes Victoria to the family graciously. Chloe arrives with Kevin and makes a beeline for Delia when she sees her with Billy and Victoria and Chloe chastises them, snatching Delia out of Billy’s arms. Billy wonders what is going on with Chloe but Victoria understands that Chloe doesn’t want Delia getting attached to another person or trying to replace Chance. Kevin tells Chloe to take a moment but it’s clear that Chloe is on the verge of losing it. Victor and Nikki arrive at the Chancellor estate and Victor pulls Victoria aside, expecting her to be grateful for him stepping up with the D.O.J. but Victoria tells him too little too late. However, Abby plays her cards perfectly with Victor when she tells him that she dropped the lawsuit and she hopes that they can work it out between them, which doesn’t make Jack the least bit happy. Later, Jack tells Tucker that they lost Abby in their fight for B of N and Tucker warns Jack that he will lose Jabot if he doesn’t deliver. Nearby, Nina thanks a numb Chloe for everything she brought into Chance’s life and Kay notices that Nikki is jonsing for a drink. Victoria and Billy are both surprised when Tucker offers Victoria a job with him a McCall Industries. As everyone toasts to Chance, Kay is struck by a dizzy spell and everyone hovers around her concerned. Meanwhile, Kevin keeps pushing Chloe to vent her angry, to grieve her loss but she tells Kevin to shove it and leaves. Later, Nikki nearly takes a drink back at the ranch, but instead asks Meggie for more iced tea, unaware that the iced tea is spiked anyway.

On the day of Chance’s funeral, Kevin is surprised by how “together” Chloe seems to be. Meanwhile, Nina remembers the first time she held Chance and breaks down as Paul holds her. Her grief turns to anger as she searches for answers. Downstairs, it means a lot to Kay when both Brock and Tucker show up to support her. Later, Christine and Ronan have a cryptic conversation. Meanwhile, Sgt. Goldman arrives to escort Nina and Phillip to the church but Nina isn’t ready to bury her son. J.T. is furious when he overhears Victoria and Billy talking about their baby. Billy tells them that Victor had the charges dropped against Victoria but J.T. warns that they will never be free of Victor. Ashley is thrilled when Abby tells her that she dropped the lawsuit against Victor but Jack, on the other hand, tries to make Abby see that she needs to take what is hers before it is too late.

At the church, as everyone is arriving, Chloe walks in with Kevin and sees a distraught Heather and Chloe immediately goes on the attack. Paul and Kay step in to break up the fight and Kevin is forced to take Chloe outside. Phillip, Kay and Jill give very touching eulogies as they reminisce about the kind of man Chance was. Sgt. Goldman presents Nina with Chance’s American flag and Chance is given the proper Military service. As everyone is leaving and passing the casket they drop a rose. Nina is horrified when she sees that not only did Christine come to the funeral but Ronan is out of jail and she showed up as well. As everyone starts attacking Chris for bringing Ronan, Chris stops them, saying that she released him and Ronan flashes his F.B.I. and orders the other F.B.I. agents to arrest Owen, Meeks and the other dirty cops. Ronan tells them that Chance was wearing a wire and they have plenty of evidence on them to send them all to prison. Everyone else stands there shocked by this twist of fate. At the Chancellor estate, Tucker asks Neil if he worked things out with Malcolm and Sofia and Neil assures him that it won’t interfere with business again. Meanwhile, Nikki asks Victoria to try and reach out to Victor but Victoria refuses and when Jack approaches Nikki decides to leave. Jack asks Victoria if she has made any decisions about Tucker’s job offer with Jabot and Victoria tells him that she is still undecided. Nina is furious with Christine for turning her son’s funeral into a circus but Chris tries to explain, saying that this is what Chance wanted. Nina, however, isn’t interested in listening and she tells Chris to get away from Chance’s casket. Meanwhile, Kay suddenly collapses at the mansion when Tucker is asking her about her health.

In the chaos at the church, Chris tries to explain herself to the awaiting mob but Paul intervenes for Nina and Phillip and asks Chris to do what she has to but leave as soon as possible. Outside, Ronan asks Heather and Chloe to hear him out. Nearby, Jill gets a call from Murphy and tells Brock they need to get to the hospital because Kay collapsed. Ronan tells Chloe and Heather that this is what Chance wanted and he tried to protect Chance but in the end he failed. When it’s obvious that neither woman is going to forgive his actions he leaves. Chloe bites Heather’s head off when she tries to glorify Chance’s death. Later, Chris pleads with Paul and Nina to hear her out because there are things they need to know. At the hospital, Murphy and Nikki are relieved when Kay wakes up and is seemingly her old self but Murphy refuses to take any chances and won’t let Tucker in to see her when Murphy believes Tucker was arguing with her before she collapsed. Later, Nikki sits by a sleeping Kay and asks her to stay with them, telling her that she is struggling with her sobriety and she needs her best friend and sponsor now more than ever. Jill and Brock arrive and Jill is shaken to the core after everything she has lost recently. Heather confronts Owen at the police station and Owen tries to convince her that Ronan is lying but Heather won’t buy another word out of his mouth. Meanwhile, Kevin helps Chloe realize that everything Ronan did was for the case and that he may actually be a good guy. However, in the end, Chloe will always see him the man who killed Chance. Kay asks for some time alone with Murphy and when they finally get it she tells them they need to put her affairs in order, just in case. Kay asks Murphy to make sure that if it ever came down to it, he would never leave her on machines to prolong her life but Murphy is uncomfortable with the idea of pulling the plug and losing her. Meanwhile, Brock tells Tucker that he isn’t going to see Kay and Tucker doesn’t like the idea of being left out in the cold. Later, Jill and Nikki get into an argument over their competiveness regarding Kay and Nikki makes a thoughtless remark about Chance’s death and is immediately ashamed of herself and decides to leave. After agreeing to meet with Christine, Nina and Phillip are taken to a deserted road and Nina becomes impatient when it looks like Chris isn’t showing up. Phillip however sees car lights pull up and they brace themselves for whatever Chris has to tell them. Nina is none too happy, however, when Ronan is there with Chris but Nina and Phillip are blindsided when Chance steps out of the car with them. Meanwhile, Heather continues to beat herself up over trusting Owen. Later, Heather is caught off guard when Attorney General arrives and appoints her the interim District Attorney and Heather and Paul decide their first point of business is taking down Owen. Nina is overcome with relief that Chance is alive but is crushed again when they tell her that Chance is going into witness protection and this may be the last time she ever sees him. Nikki arrives home and goes straight to the liquor cabinet and decides to finally take a drink. Meanwhile, Kay’s doctor tells her that she can go home soon since she merely collapsed from dehydration and exhaustion.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
