At Gloworm, while trying to help Gloria with her new electronic registers, Kevin is blindsided when Gloria gives Kevin his divorce papers from Michael just as Chloe arrives with the new issue of RS.

Later, Chloe ends up consoling Jana when she breaks into tears over losing Kevin. Victoria prepares to tell Nikki the news about her and Billy’s new home. At the ranch, after a sleepless night, Nikki admits to Victor that she was suddenly hit with the urge to drink and wonders where it came from. Meggie listens out of sight, secretly thrilled that her plan is working. Later, Nikki is going through old family photos when Victoria arrives. Victoria tells Nikki about the house and Nikki takes it in stride until she learns that Victoria bought the house together, they aren’t renting. However, no one is more stunned than Victor when he runs into Billy at the gym and sees his tattoo. Jack and Ashley wonder how Victor persuaded Adam to drop his suit against the Newmans and realize that Skye may know something. Meanwhile, Adam warns Skye about interfering with the suit against the Abbotts after what she did with the Newmans.

When Skye arrives she tells Jack that she isn’t telling him anything about the lawsuit unless there is something in it for her. Meanwhile, Ashley confronts Adam who tries to play the victim but Ashley won’t have it and promises him that she will find out what Victor has on him and use it to nail him to the wall. Nikki isn’t sure of Victoria’s decision but Victoria tells her that because of Billy she is moving on with her life and enjoying it and she doesn’t care what Victor thinks anymore. Meanwhile, both Billy and Victor find a moment of humor as Billy explains why he has a tattoo of Victor’s name on his back instead of Victoria’s name. Later, Billy and Victoria aren’t sure if they should laugh or be wary when Victor sends a tattoo artist to the trailer to finish Billy’s tattoo. Once complete, Billy and Victoria admire the work before leaving to their new home. Skye tells Jack that she wants his contacts to invest in the Newman Fund before she says a word and Jack makes good immediately. Skye turns right around and tells Jack that she was the reason that Adam had to drop the lawsuit against Victor. Meanwhile, Meggie purposefully steers her conversation with Nikki towards alcohol, trying to continue to push Nikki to the edge. Later, Skye tells Adam about her meeting with Jack and threatens that if Adam doesn’t drop the suit against the Abbotts she will tell Jack everything. At Gloworm, Victor meets with Jack and Ashley to tell them what he found out from Skye and Ashley is stunned at the depths of Adam’s cruelty. Ashley leaves as Billy and Victoria arrive to meet Gloria and Jack tells Victor that Billy and Victoria bought a house together.  Jana is crushed when Kevin presents her with the divorce papers and runs out of the coffeehouse without taking them. Later, Jana and Kevin sit together as they look at the papers and Jana asks Kevin for one last chance. Kevin responds by signing the papers and saying goodbye. Meggie spikes a smoothie with alcohol and gives it Nikki. Meanwhile, Victoria is stung by Victor’s seeming indifference to her news about her moving in with Billy. Later, Ashley vows to take everything from Adam that he took from her.

Jack is forced to cover with Ashley when she tells him that Abby is suing Victor for mismanagement of her trust and she tells him that Victor thinks Jack is behind it. Meanwhile, Victor has bigger problems than Abby when he realizes that Victoria and Billy are having a baby and getting married. Nikki tries to keep the peace but Victoria loses it when Victor says that the only reason that Billy is marrying her is to stick it to him. Billy steps in, furious, and asks Victoria to marry him tomorrow and Victoria agrees. When they can’t get married in Genoa City because license waiting periods, Billy asks Victoria to go to Las Vegas. At the coffeehouse, Nina and Paul finally see the computer aged photo of Nina’s son but it looks nothing like Ronan. Nina realizes that she has never seen this person before and she thought she would recognize him somehow. Meanwhile, Chloe quickly tries to explain to a reeling Chance how she came to find out that Ronan was his brother. With Meeks and Owen, Ronan, trying to prove his loyalty, agrees to kill Chance by tomorrow night. Later, Chance doesn’t believe for a second that Ronan is his brother and tells Chloe that Ronan’s game end tonight.

Heather tells him that she is there to tell Owen everything about the case and Ronan begs her to give him more time, his life depends on it.

Nikki tries to get Victor to reconsider his position about Billy and Victoria, especially since they are expecting a child but he refuses. Victor leaves to go deal with Abby and Nikki calls Victoria who tells Nikki that they are going to Vegas to get married and although disappointed, Nikki supports Victoria. Meanwhile, Victor goes to see Ashley and Jack to tell them about Billy and Victoria’s news and Jack is no more pleased about it than Victor. Ashley tells them to leave Billy and Victoria alone but Victor tells them that he plans to stop the wedding. Later, Nikki calls Victoria to tell her that she was able to get the waiting period on the marriage license waived so that she and Billy can get married in Genoa City tomorrow.  At Ronan’s motel, Chance confronts his brother for the first time since learning the truth and Ronan doesn’t deny it. Chance attacks him and Ronan tells him to back off and he’ll tell him everything. Meanwhile, Heather shows up at the coffeehouse, visibly upset and tells Nina and Paul that she doesn’t know who she can trust.

Meanwhile, Victor gets a call that his plan was successful.

General Hospital

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

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.
