What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

General Hospital

Aiden is having a birthday party at Perks. Franco tells Elizabeth that Aiden has style and talent. He can’t believe how skilled Aiden is. Cameron hopes he’s skilled with the drum set he got. Franco says, and Elizabeth thought Cameron’s car gave them a headache.

Curtis and Jordan walk into the prison visiting area, where they have glass partitions. Curtis tells Jordan he’s glad they’re getting their lives back, but didn’t imagine they’d be going to Pentonville. He was thinking more like walks in the park or binge watching a show. Jordan says she needs peace of mind. He says, don’t count on it. Ryan is brought in, and acts like he’s in pain, clutching his side.

Willow visits Harmony, and says she’s sorry Harmony is back in prison after her statement against Shiloh. It doesn’t seem fair. Harmony tells Willow that she meant what said, and she has to take responsibility for her actions. It’s difficult, but it could be worse. Willow says Harmony’s cellmate Nelle is a comfort. Harmony says Nelle is young, like Willow. Because of her cooperation, Harmony has also been appointed to prison librarian. Willow says it suits her; she loves to read. Harmony says Willow does too. Willow wants to let her know Shiloh was arrested. Harmon says, wonderful. Willow’s son is safe from him. Willow says, yes. He’s finally safe Thanks to Harmony.

Drew and Jason go into The Floating Rib. Jason says, not a bad first day of work. Drew tells him the treehouse will be crawling with kids by August. I’m going to say this right now. There are days when the boom man is sleeping or something, because the sound will be unbalanced. You can hear things like people’s shoes louder than the dialogue. This is one of those days.

Sonny finds Kristina at Charlie’s, and tells her how proud he is that she stood up to Shiloh. She says Shiloh can’t hurt her now. She told him about the Pledge, and she’ll have to work through it, but he’ll be in prison. It serves him right.

At the station, Chase tells Laura, Robert wanted Shiloh held without bail. The judge set it impossibly high instead. She says, apparently not high enough. Shiloh comes out, and Chase tells him not to leave town. Shiloh says he can assure him until he retrieves the results of the DNA test, he’s not going anywhere.

Lulu tells Franco and Elizabeth, at the reception, Jake said Aiden wanted a drum set. They were saying he’d forget, but he didn’t. So her mom and Doc went for it. Don’t hate them. She says she heard what happened at the reception, and she’s so sorry. Franco tells her, blame the guest list, not the boat. There’s no talk of a lawsuit from Obrecht. Elizabeth thinks her sister has something big up her sleeve.

Charlotte asks Nina if she thinks they should have gotten a mixer instead. Nina thinks the mixing bowls are perfect, and is sure he’ll love it. Hayden arrives. In something sleeveless.

Kristina tells Sonny that she hates the thought of running into Shiloh. Sonny says she didn’t show it at the MetroCourt. She was on fire. He thinks Shiloh’s lawyer was more impressed with her than her client. She’s strong and resilient. She says it helps having her dad by her side. He says nothing matters more than his kids being healthy and whole. His phone rings. He steps away, and talks to someone in Spanish.

Willow tells Harmony that she can rest easy, knowing Wiley is safe. DOD is being brought down too. She doesn’t know about Beecher’s Corners, but in Port Charles, almost everyone left the group. Harmony imagines it will be the same in Beecher’s Corners, and wishes she could explain to them. They’re good people; just lost and searching for a connection. Shiloh took advantage of them, and even worse, she helped him. Willow says he took advantage of Harmony too. He’s the one to blame, when she’s behind bars. Harmony says she deserves to be, for many reasons, especially because she’s Willow’s mother. She should have protected Willow, instead of handing her over to Shiloh. Willow had to give up her son because of him. Harmony takes Willow’s hands, and says she’s so sorry. She was so blind. Willow tells her, please, if Shiloh winds up there, and she somehow runs into him, don’t let him manipulate her again.

Chase tells Shiloh, the judge has suspended any action in family court, pending the outcome of his criminal case. He can’t even get court date. Shiloh says, until he’s exonerated, but Chase says, not happening. Shiloh says he’s innocent until proven guilty. The charges are groundless. Chase says the evidence against him is piling up, including having a window of opportunity the night Douglas Miller was murdered. Shiloh says, one way or another, he’ll be a father to his son. Laura says, the evidence is overwhelming. He says, nothing is overwhelming to a man of faith. One day, they’ll work side by side. Their goals aren’t that different. They want to provide the best possible life for their children. He leaves, and Chase says he’d give anything to see Shiloh behind bars permanently.

Shiloh tells Daisy that Zahra can’t do it; he needs a criminal attorney. He says she needs to help. The future of DOD rests on him getting legal representation. She says she wants to help, but she can’t. It took her entire trust fund to pay his bail, and her parents cut her off. She asks what’s going to happen to him, and he says, it’s always darkest before the dawn. Zzzzzzzzz…

At The Floating Rib, Drew tells Jason that he doesn’t think the point of them building the treehouse was for them to become master carpenters, but to build a relationship between brothers. Hammering nails is a start, but maybe they should share a meal, have a beer. He thinks that’s what Oscar wanted. Jason says he’s starved, and they sit. Drew thinks he’ll have the brisket. Jason blows air, and Drew says he knows it’s weird for him, but Jason says, it’s fine. What’s bothering him is Oscar leaving his ELQ shares to Shiloh. Drew says, him too. Shiloh waltzed his way into the will reading like it was a joke. He had to exercise self-restraint. Jason says it conflicts with Oscar’s plan to use the shares for kids who want to make the climb, but can’t afford it. Drew says he’d like to think it was forged. Jason isn’t saying that, but maybe Oscar was confused, and forgot his bequest to Shiloh. Drew says he checked, and it’s legal, but Jason says, so is the Kilimanjaro Foundation. It’s in Oscar’s handwriting. Drew asks where that leaves the shares, and Jason says, tied up in court, probably for years. Drew says it’s a silver lining that Shiloh can’t get his hands on them.

Ryan picks up the prison phone. Jordan asks how he is, and he says the surgery gives him a twinge. It’s life-threatening, living with one kidney. It’s made him vulnerable to hypertension and a stroke. He doesn’t want his premature death on her conscience. Curtis tells Jordan, unfortunately, Ryan isn’t dying anytime soon. He’s seen Ryan’s medical records.

Aiden opens a present, and it’s a remote control truck. Charlotte wants to try it, and he says, sure. The kids go off, and Hayden helps gather up the paper. Elizabeth asks what’s going on with her, and Franco says he’ll leave them to it. Elizabeth asks if Hayden invited Jax, but Hayden says it never occurred to her. Elizabeth says, Jax is fun, easygoing, and children love him, Hayden says she doesn’t think of Jax that way, and asks if Elizabeth thinks Finn will show. Elizabeth asks why Hayden would care if he came or not.

Aiden wonders what’s in one of the boxes. Cameron gives him an envelope, telling him that a pastry chef (I don’t catch the name, but it’s not Christine Tosi, who’s the only pastry chef I know) is taping episodes of their show in the area, so he got right in line and got tickets. Aiden is excited, and Cameron tells him not to lose his cool. Aiden wants to have cake, and Cameron says, whatever he likes.

Hayden approaches Nina, and tells her that her future stepdaughter is lovely and energetic. Nina say she and Valentin are proud of her. Hayden says they didn’t get a chance to talk, and Nina says a finance meeting isn’t the best place to get acquainted. Hayden says she’s heard about Nina, and her work at Crimson. Nina says, that’s strange, since she’s heard next to nothing about Hayden. Nina excuses herself, and walks away.

Lulu is proud of Charlotte, and tells her it means a lot to Aiden that she came. Charlotte asks why Rocco isn’t there, and Lulu says he has a cold. Charlotte says, too bad. They’re hardly ever together as a family, especially since Dante’s been gone. She asks when he’s coming back. She misses him. Lulu says she does too, and hugs Charlotte.

Drew tells Jason, Shiloh is a con man. He can’t help thinking that Oscar got wrapped up with Shiloh because of him. Shiloh came after Oscar, and when Oscar died, Shiloh tried to console Drew for half a minute before he started on the past. He said Oscar was interested in Drew’s life, especially his time as a SEAL. The more he thinks about it, the more he wonders why.

Kristina turns around at the bar, and sees Shiloh. He says he’s there to make peace. She doesn’t know how he got released, but says he made a serious mistake showing up there. He says he made bail, and just wanted to come by. He’s missed her. Daisy says, her too. DOD suffered a huge blow, but with her help they can make DOD stronger and better. Shiloh says they’re not there to not pressure their sister, just to say hello. Even after what Kristina said to malign him, he forgives her. He wishes her nothing but love and happiness, and hopes to see more of her soon. She says he will. She’s going to testify against him. She can’t wait to tell a judge and jury how he pressured her into revealing person information he could blackmail her with. How he drugged her, and coerced other members of the Trust. He’s a sexual predator. Sonny tells her not to waste her waste her breath. He’s a cockroach to be stepped on. Shiloh tells Daisy, come. They have work to do.

Curtis takes the phone, and tells Ryan that the prison doctor said he’s doing good. He’s healing well, with no side effects. Ryan asks how Curtis got access to his medical records, laughs, and says, impressive. Curtis is a remarkable tracker. Curtis says Ryan doesn’t know him, or what he’s capable of doing. Jordan tells Curtis not to let Ryan bait him. Jordan thanks Ryan for saving her life. Ryan says, it wasn’t voluntary; he was forced. A kidney was taken from him, and that means a crime was committed. He asks if the commissioner is going to let that stand, or is the law as flexible as her husband’s morals?

Cameran says Aiden wants him to share the experience, so he’s going with him to see the pastry chef. Laura asks Lulu if she’s okay. Lulu says she looks around, and it’s a family party, but Dante’s not there. She wishes he would come home. Geez, why? So he can commit mass murder? He didn’t sound ready. Charlotte sees Willow, and says she’s glad Willow came. She’s doing Lila’s Kids this summer, and working on jumps with her pony. She asks if Willow got Aiden something to cook with. He likes to bake. Willow says she knew that. Charlotte tells Willow about the monster truck Aiden got. He doesn’t know how to operate it, but she does. She runs off, and Nina says she’s glad Willow is there. She’s afraid she owes Willow an apology.

Harmony goes into the visiting room to find Shiloh. She asks what he’s doing there. She was told he was never going to see the light of day, He wonders from whom; Willow? She’s misinformed. He made bail. Harmony says, the accounts are frozen, but he says his followers are still loyal. He hopes she follows their example. She sits down, and says, not likely. Shiloh knows she’s trying to atone for her perceived failing with her daughter, but what about her grandson? She’s depriving him of a father. He urges her to reflect on what she’s doing, In the name of what they created together. She needs to recant her statement, and he promises to do everything in his power, and use every resource he has to get her freed. And they’ll raise the child together.

Drew tells Jason that Margaux gave him back the flashdrive. It’s in a safe in his office. He should probably destroy it. He can’t risk losing the memories he’s made over the last five years to recover his old ones. Jason asks if he told Shiloh, and Drew says, more than once. Shiloh asks, and the answer is always the same. He can’t tell if Shiloh thinks that’s good or bad news. Jason says, it depends on what happened in Afghanistan. The story Shiloh tells is that Drew saved his life by pulling him from a wrecked convoy, but knowing Drew, he can’t believe they were friends. Drew says he can’t either. It’s more likely the truth is the opposite. Why go out of his way to reconnect with Drew?

Curtis says Ryan’s signature is on the donation form; he gave his consent, and there were multiple witnesses. Ryan says their plan worked. Curtis’s friend drugged him, and Ryan’s brother signed. Curtis says he could never prove it, and Ryan says Curtis is his kind of guy. The question is, has his wife become Bonnie to his Clyde, Curtis asks if Jordan wants to go, and Jordan tells Ryan if he has something to say, say it. Otherwise, they’re leaving. He tells Jordan it’s inescapable. Now he’s now literally in her blood. His kidney will affect her heart and soul, and she’ll never get him out.

Nina tells Willow that she realized she set something in motion. She overheard Willow say she put a baby up for adoption. She was obviously upset, and snapped at Nina, who snapped back, and mentioned the baby. She realized that Shiloh must have overheard. She’s the reason, and she’s so sorry. Willow thanks her, but tells her not to blame herself. It was only a matter of time. Shiloh has ways of finding things out. But it worked out. Wiley is safe, and Shiloh is in jail.

Harmony says Shiloh has always underestimated her. She always helped him to build, but he took all the credit. He wrote a book, got followers, and made himself a legend in his own mind. She finally sees him for the sexual predator that he is. He’s right. She feels guilty, but she can make amends. When she testifies, she’s going to more than sing like a bird. About all of it. He’s going to be found guilty, because he is guilty. He’ll go to prison, and her grandson will be safe, because she sees him now for who he is. Hank. A pathetic little man whose desperation reeks. She tells him, stay away from her daughter and grandson. She yells for the guard, and says she’s through there. The cheese Shiloh sits alone.

Kristina can’t believe they let Shiloh go, but Sonny says, just because he made bail, doesn’t mean he’s free. She says, Daisy must have posted bail; her mom is rich. Sonny is rich. She thinks that’s the real reason why Shiloh thought she was special. He asks why let Shiloh’s poison come to her; don’t do that. She says, he’s right. She’s stronger than Shiloh, and has love and support around her. She’ll be fine. She goes in the back, and Sonny takes out his phone.

Jason says it’s not a random guy Drew saved. They knew each other, Maybe Drew knew something, and it’s on the flashdrive. Jason’s phone rings. Sonny tells him, ready for this? Shiloh is out on bail.

Nina tells Willow that she read the article. She hopes the women he abused come forward to testify. She’s just happy Willow’s son is okay. Maybe they’re not so different after all. Aiden comes by, banging on a snare drum. He asks Willow if she thinks the principal would start a marching band. She thinks it’s a wonderful idea, and suggests he take it to the principal on the first day of school.

Laura tells Lulu, it’s going to take time. She’s in shock. Lulu still can’t believe Dante shot Peter. She heard the words, and tried to process them. When she woke up this morning, she didn’t want it to be true. Dante must be horrified, and feel lost. Laura says he’s getting the help he needs. A delivery guy gives Lulu an envelope.

Chase finds Willow, and she says he just made her day perfect. Shiloh’s been barred from family court, and she saw her mother. It was like rediscovering her again. They had an unbelievable breakthrough. And finally, there he is, her knight shining armor. She kisses him, and he says, it’s not all good news. Shiloh made bail.

On the phone, Jason says, got it. Shiloh comes into the restaurant, and Drew says, son of a bitch.

Kristina comes back, and asks if Sonny called Jason. Sonny says, yeah, he did. Kristina doesn’t want Shiloh to disappear. The only way for him to hurt her is if they got blamed if he disappeared or ran away. Sonny hopes he stays put, and has his day in court. Give Sam, and everybody else, a chance to face him down. Then he can rot in prison, where he belongs. Sonny gives a charming smile.

Shiloh tells Drew that he hates the way things ended between them. Drew says he made bail, and Shiloh says, that’s a good thing. They can put the ELQ stock drama behind them. Drew says Shiloh will be old and grey before he can touch the stock. Doesn’t DOD preach that money doesn’t matter? Shiloh says he’s the victim of a witch hunt, and unfortunately has to pay a lawyer. Drew says, good luck with that. Shiloh says Drew has forgotten that their friendship used to matter

Lulu tells Laura that Dante is divorcing her.

The kids whack at a piñata. No surprise, Charlotte is the one who finally cracks it open.

Jordan tells Curtis, sometimes justice serves, sometimes it doesn’t. He says there’s nothing just about letting her die while that monster lives. He tells her, don’t believe what comes out of his twisted mouth; the lies. She says she doesn’t feel any kind of connection, but she’s not comfortable knowing Ryan was forced to give up his kidney. Curtis says she deserves to live, and she says, it’s still wrong, but she’s not giving it back. She’ll just have to live with it. Curtis says saving her was the best thing he’s done in his miserable life. She says she can’t imagine a future without Curtis, and he says, him neither.

Harmony sees Shiloh’s book on the book cart, and is about to get rid of it. Ryan comes out, accompanied by a guard, and says, never discard something as precious as a book. She says this one is worthless. He takes it, and says perhaps he’ll find something. She says not if he has a brain. He says his brain is intact. It’s the rest of him that’s missing a piece. He’ll let her know what he thinks. Give his regards to her cellmate Nelle.

Chase tells Willow that the case against Shiloh is only getting stronger. She’s afraid he’ll fina a new way around the law, and come back to do more damage. She’s an adult, and can handle it, but what if he finds a way to get to Wiley?

Sonny tells Kristina not to worry. He doesn’t want Shiloh to disappear either. She says she’s out, and it’s up to her to stay out. He says he never believed what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but in her case, he agrees. She seems stronger.

Drew says Shiloh didn’t care about his son. He used Oscar, but Oscar came home to his family. Shiloh says Oscar left him the shares as a sign of his faith. Drew says Oscar had plans for the stock, and he’s going to make sure they become a reality. Shiloh will not tarnish his son’s legacy. Does Shiloh hear him? Shiloh smirks, and walks away. Drew picks up a pool cue. Jason says he’s going to take off, and Drew says he’s going to shoot some pool. He’ll see Jason back on treehouse duty later. Jason says he’ll be there. Jason gives Shiloh a look before he leaves.

At the bar, Shiloh remembers being in an infirmary tent in Afghanistan. A dude pounds on his chest and tells him, how about waking up? Shiloh says, hey, Drew, but sees the old Drew’s (Jason’s) face.

Laura says Lulu can give Dante what he wants or fight him, Jax gets the feeling Nina isn’t telling him something, Jordan asks Stella if she’s at peace with that, and Drew attacks Shiloh.

I’m wondering if Shiloh didn’t do something stupid in Afghanistan to get the convoy attacked. He could possibly been involved in Drew’s disappearance as well.

July 14, 2019 – A Step Closer To Takeoff, A Little 90 News, Tea For Three Wives & Yes It Is

Standard

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Alicia faces the zombie barricade. She radios the kids, asking if they can hear her. Nothing. She takes out her crazy weapon, and chops through the ropes linking the zombies.

Victor shoots at the zombies, and suggests he and Charlie beat a hasty retreat. He has to check the propeller, and Charlie yells, this way! coaxing the zombies away from him. Morgan radios, saying he heard gunshots. He tells Victor that they need to stay away from the zombies with burns on them. Stay as far away as they can. He’s seen people who were exposed, and it ain’t pretty.

Alicia chops zombies down like Joan Crawford chopping rosebushes. She ignores the ones who are restrained. She pikes a few in the head for variety.

Morgan tells Victor that Alicia is looking for Max and Annie. He asks if Victor is still near the balloon. Victor says they are, and asks Morgan for something. I miss what it is, but Morgan says he’s on it. June radios Morgan, saying she’s on her way. Morgan says he doesn’t know where John is, and if she wants to help, she can do that by finishing the plane. Morgan radios Grace, and says he needs some help. Some people crashed on the other side. They’re all right, but they need her. It’s the only way they’ll finish. He tells her that he’s past the roadblock. She says if he gets any closer, he could be contaminated. He says she has what they need to fix the plane. She tells him that he needs to get back to the truck stop, unless he wants less time to finish. She tells him where he can stop to get what he needs.

Alicia continues on through the woods. She gets a little fascinated with a tied-up zombie. She feels something behind her, and turns around to find Dylan. He tells her to follow him. The forest is crowded with zombie deterrents, attached to trees.

Victor drags the propeller, as the zombies toddle after him. He tells Charlie, now, and she pulls the balloon material up to make a barrier between them and the zombies.

At a tall, wooden gate, Dylan says, olly, olly, oxen free. The gate opens, and Alicia follows Dylan in. Max holds a gun on her, and Alicia says she wants to help. Annie says she told Alicia that they didn’t want it. She never should have come there. The gate closes.

Annie asks why Alicia has that thing, meaning her weapon. Alicia says it gives her another day. They’re running out of time. They all are. They’re not safe there. Annie says they made it through the first one, but Alicia says, one day the wind will blow in a different direction, and kick up the radiation. Annie asks why Alicia can’t leave them alone. Alicia says she can’t leave knowing she didn’t do everything to keep them safe. They could die, or worse, live and kill everyone by staying there. She knows getting on a plane sounds crazy, but so is staying there. Annie says Alicia crashed a plane, and someone almost died for a person who wasn’t even there. They put a barrier up, and Alicia still won’t give up. There’s something else. What is it? Alicia says she wants to do something good to make up for what she did. Annie asks if Alicia hurt people, and Alicia says she did. She asks if Alicia killed people, and Alicia says, yes. She doesn’t want them to go through what she did. Annie says she’s not going, and neither is Alicia. She tore down the only thing protecting them. She needs to help put the barricade back up, and make sure no one followed her. If Alicia misses her flight, it’s her fault.

Gas drips from the airplane, and Luci tells Al that they must have put a hole in the tank when they moved it. Al checks out the damage, says, sh*t, and gets into the cockpit. The plane won’t start. June says they’re standing on a giant gas tank, but Al says it’s not the same. They need aviation fuel. She knows where they can get some.

Morgan checks inside a car, and finds a bag with a mask in it. He goes into a house, pokey stick at the ready. He bangs on the floor, but all is quiet. He looks through some drawers, and radios Alicia. He asks if she’s all right, and she says, yeah. She found the kids; they’re with her now. She asks about Victor and Charlie, and if they’re still in the contaminated area. Morgan says, yes, and so is he, but not for much longer. He picks up a birthday card, and looks at it. He tells Alicia, John and Dwight are out of range. Stay safe, and get the kids back to the truck stop. Alicia says she tried, and she can’t. She can’t get through to them. Morgan should be there. Morgan says they’re both exactly where they’re supposed to be. He looks at some personal mementos on the refrigerator, and finds a set of keys. Alicia says she’s starting to wonder if this is right, but Morgan says, it is. He hears a zombie being noisy outside the window. He looks at it, and the reflection of his face looks like it’s the zombie’s face. He tells Alicia that they’re getting everybody on the plane, and they’re going to do what they came there to do.

June asks if Al is sure where the helicopter landed. Al say she is. She can climb up, and see what’s left.  John’s voice crackles over the radio. June tells him that he has to get back to the truck stop. He says they’re still a ways out, but she says, the second reactor might melt down. Grace said they don’t have much time. John has a problem hearing her, and loses the signal. Dwight found tells John that he found something. John says they need to get the hell out of there. Dwight tell him to go. John has done more for him then he needed to. He he has to keep looking. He asks if John would get on the plane if he knew June was out there, and John says, of course not. John almost gives Dwight the note from Shari, but decides against it. He says, come on.

Charlie asks if Victor thinks the material is going to hold, and he says, yes. She tells him, Daniel said, every day was a chance to start over; to get it right. Victor says, he speaks the truth, but she doesn’t think the barrier is going to hold for long. They might not get a chance. Victor says they already have. He knows he’s said that should have been his plane, but the truth is, he might have been able to get back on. He hesitated. Charlie asks, why? and he says he doesn’t think he believed in it – in them. They were on the precipice of something extraordinary, and he balked, but he’s standing there now. So is she, and they did something extraordinary, and didn’t balk. They’re not starting now.

Victor gets his gun ready, but blood starts to spatter on the other side. It’s Morgan, shooting up zombies while wearing a Hazmat suit. Victor tells him that he just said they’re due for a break. Morgan asks where the propeller is, and says he’s got to get them out of there.

Annie asks why Dylan brought Alicia there. He says, she wants to help, and Annie says, she’s a mess. Dylan says, the plane can work, and she asks if he wants to get in a plane that’s already crashed. If they stay there, they stay safe. They fix the zombie blockade, and jet.

Up in a treehouse, Alicia looks through a box of photographs, and finds a notebook of a child’s drawings. There are drawings of a family, a zombie barricade, and it looks like the kids as zombies. Dylan asks what she’s doing, and she asks if he drew these. He nods, and she says, he’s scared, isn’t he? She tells him, it’s okay, but he takes the book, puts it back in the box, and moves the box out of reach. He says he drew them before; at the beginning, when everything happened. He says, they were playing. Annie saw them, and thought they were scary. She thought if they made it real, it would scare away the others, so no one would bother them. Alicia says they’re living in his nightmare, and Dylan says, everything is a nightmare now. Alicia can’t argue with that. He looks at her weapon, and she says, it wasn’t always like that. She sharpened it after she lost her mom. It saved her from the dead, but kept the living away. She thought if she scared them, they’d leave her alone, but she was the one who was scared. Annie comes in, and says the zombies followed them.

A kid reinforces the gate, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to hold.

The generator doesn’t work, and Grace bangs on it. She puts her head in her hands. Morgan radios, and says he got what he needed. She tells him the generator isn’t strong enough; she’s sorry. He asks how long before a meltdown, and she says, twelve hours; maybe a day. Morgan says they’ll finish by then. She say she can still buy them time. He asks if that’s the truth, and she says she can try. She uses a wrench to tinker with something, and tells Morgan that she’ll go to the truck stop when she’s done.

Morgan gives Grace directions to the truck stop.  He tells Victor that he’ll meet them there. He’s going to get her. Victor says he thought they just said Grave was meeting them, but Morgan says, she’s not coming back. He was at her house, and saw who she was when she had something to live for. He says he’ll meet them there, and Victor and Charlie take off.

June packs up the gas containers, and tells Al it should get them over the mountain. Al says the fact that she knew where to find it, points to them being able to do this. She radios John, but it’s dead air. June says she went over a year without seeing John, without hearing his voice. She’s not letting that happen again. She waits a moment, and says, well? Al says she asked if Al wanted to talk about what happened when she was missing. She does, but June can’t tell anyone.

She tells June that she met someone. June says, who? When? Al says while she was gone, she met someone and felt something she hasn’t felt in a long time. But Al can never see her again, never talk to her, and doesn’t know how to live with that. June says when she left John in the cabin, she thought she’d never see him again. She felt… gone. Like she wasn’t the same as when she was with him. She was a ghost. She couldn’t talk about it. Nothing anyone said would have made it better. What do you say when someone is missing a piece of themselves? The piece that makes them who they are. She told herself every day, even if never saw him again, she’d always be grateful for what they had, and who she could be. Grateful that she could still feel that way for someone after everything. That it could even exist. She chooses to believe that whoever she is, Al will see her again. Al knows June will see John again. June says, as sure as sh*t, she knows that.

The fence isn’t doing well. Alicia asks about guns, and Annie says, they’re not loaded. She insists the fence will hold. They put the zombies there, and Alicia can’t stop them by herself. Alicia begs Annie to give her the guns. Max says, she’s right. He saw her after the crash. Dylan agrees she can keep them safe. The zombies start to come through. Alicia tells Annie to work on a plan to get down, and she’ll hold them off. Zombies begin to come across on a footbridge that hangs over the water, and Alicia meets them halfway. She impales one, not even breaking her stride.

John drives until the gas tank is empty. He says they have to raise June on the radio, or they’re up the creek. Dwight points out a giant rig. They get in the cab, and John tries to hotwire it. Dwight says they can walk if they have to. He says she might have made it across the mountain; they can too. John says it doesn’t sound like they have days. He thinks he may have gotten them into trouble. When Dwight asked if he’d found anything in the car, he said no. He lied. He found this… He hands Dwight the note, and Dwight reads it. John says he’s sorry. Dwight gets out of the truck.

Grace works on the generator. Morgan arrives wearing the suit, and carrying his pokey stick. He says Grace might not know how much time she has left, but she’s not dead yet, and he’s not letting her act like she is.

Alicia whacks and stabs zombies. She radios the kids, asking how it’s going. Max says they need more time. Zombies start trickling in. Alicia gives it everything she’s got, but one gets her down, his eyeball hanging in her face. This really pisses her off, and she flips him over, stabbing the other eyeball into next week. She sees the ID from the nuclear plant around his neck, and realizes there’s blood on her and she probably got it in her mouth.

Annie shoots at a couple of zombies, who tumble down the hill, pushing them even closer. She’s not a great shot but finally gets them in the head. Alicia asks if they’re okay, and Max says, yeah. Her? She looks around, and says, this isn’t going to work. She can’t do what she said. Annie tells her to come up, but she says, no. She knows they don’t want to leave, but they’ll die if they stay. You have to know when to let go. She tells Annie, get the kids on the plane. That’s how to protect them. Annie doesn’t know what Alicia did, but thanks her for it. She tells the kids, let’s go, and they head out.

Alicia bangs on the gate, and says, come on.

Luci tells Victor and Charlie they can shower and get fresh clothes. Victor tells her, Morgan said he’d be there, and Luci is sure he will.

Sitting outside the truck, Morgan tells Grace that he didn’t have much choice. He did what he had to do. Grace says they don’t know how much radiation they’ve been exposed to. He says he tried to face things, and almost died trying. A man named Eastman helped him. Eastman taught him that all life is precious. Grace asks how he knew she wouldn’t leave, and he says he didn’t. He just took a chance. Eastman taught him something else, about redirection. He didn’t think his own life was worth saving, so he made it about someone else’s life. She asks what if she’d refused to leave? and he says he didn’t think of that. She laughs, and says they have the same problem. They think everyone else’s life is more valuable than their own. She gets in the truck.

Charlie says they have to get to work. The kids show up at the gate. Luci introduces Victor and Charlie. Dylan says, The Little Prince. That was Charlie’s book. Charlie says it was. Luci says they came back, and Annie says, Alicia was convincing. Victor says, she usually is, and asks where she is now. I think Annie says, stuck, but I’m not positive.

Alicia leads the zombies through the forest.

Dwight looks at Shari’s rings. John supposes Dwight isn’t happy with him. He’d said that the world hadn’t touched John. Dwight knows why John did it. He wanted to keep Dwight going. John says, it doesn’t have to be the end of the road. Dwight says she didn’t want him looking for her, and looks at the note again. He reads, find something to live for, and live. He says he doesn’t want to give it up, even if she’s telling him to stop, but if he does find a reason to live, he has to make it right. Maybe they’ll end up like him and June. Maybe… she’s alive. Impossible sh*t happens. John says it happened for him, and Dwight says he’s going to get John back to June.

Alicia rinses her mouth in the creek. I don’t know how smart that is. In the car with Grace, Morgan radios, and asks if she’s all right. After the longest pause ever, she says she’s okay. She picked up a pack of walkers, but thinks she lost them. He tells her that the kids made it to the truck stop. She did it. He says when he and Grace were on their way back, he kept thinking about what she said. He thinks helping people isn’t the only reason. They might be right; trying make up for the lives they took. When they stopped living on their own, they kept finding people to help, but also helped themselves find a way to start living. Alicia says they will. Morgan asks her to tell him where she is. She gets up. A few zombies have nearly caught up to her.

A siren goes off, and Morgan says, is that…? She says, yes. We see the plant, where the zombies try to get at the speakers blasting the sound.

Next time, Max Headroom is back, June tries to find John, and the plane is started.

💍 The new season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days will begin on August 4th. I can’t wait. The Family Chantel, starting July 22nd, sounds intriguing, but phony as hell. I’ve always had the nagging suspicion that, even if their story is based in truth, these people have been reading their lines. And they’re bad actors. Yet somehow they’ve charmed the fans and gotten a spin-off.

May 20, 2019 – Finn Finds the Ring, VanderReunion Concludes, GH Fashion, LVP Rules, the Throne Game Lingers & Replacement Ad

Standard

What I Watched Today

(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)

 

General Hospital

The Ball begins. The nurses sing You Got the Best of My Love, with Epiphany, Deanna, and Amy doing solos. Nurses we’ve never seen before do some wicked dancing. I love the Ball, and seeing everyone do something they don’t normally. I’m really looking forward to Chase. Confetti falls at the end of the number to much applause.

Lucy welcomes everyone, and thanks them. She hopes they brought their wallets. Every dime goes to fight HIV and AIDS. She tells them fasten their seatbelts. They’re in for a wild ride.

Ava asks Scotty why he thought Lucy would be there. He asks why does she think? Doc says, it’s becoming obvious. Scotty says he saw Doc sneaking off with Lucy. Ava says, that’s odd, since she was with him when a staff member said someone fainted on the red carpet. She takes it that was Lucy. Doc says Lucy was wearing a lacy negligee, and Scotty says it’s a good outfit to faint in. Ava says he burst in like he expected to say, ah-ha! Caught you. Scotty says why wouldn’t he? Doc is all wrong for Ava.

Mike and Yvonne thank Sonny for including them. Mike thinks it’s the best way to celebrate their engagement, show off his fiancé. Carly looks at the ring.

Chase and Willow join Finn, who’s looking glum at the bar. Chase asks if he’s okay, and he says he’s fine. Chase asks Willow for some privacy, and tells Finn to propose without the ring. While Anna is saying yes, he’ll arrest Robert for stealing it in the first place.

Neil sees Alexis, and sits with her. She says she had no idea they’d be sitting at the same table. He’s probably the only person who can keep her from tearing Shiloh’s head off. Neil is surprised Shiloh is there, and Alexis points him out. Sam is taking pictures, and Shiloh says he didn’t take her for being a selfie girl. She says she’s not, but just got caught up in the moment.

Spinelli tells Jason the surveillance equipment is state of the art. They have all that they need to hear everything the instant it’s happening. Jason gets a text from Sam, saying she’s at the Ball with Shiloh. Spinelli says, excellent. The plan is working. In the meantime, they have to make sure no other members are at the DOD house.

Kristina suggests watching a movie, but Josslyn doesn’t care. She says Kristina doesn’t have to babysit her. Kristina says Josslyn is doing her favor. She doesn’t want to feel like a coward for skipping the Ball, but she doesn’t feel like a fancy party, so she appreciates keeping Josslyn company. Josslyn says, bring on the popcorn.

Jax tells Carly, Josslyn is fine; he just texted her. Cameron arrives, and asks if Josslyn is coming. Jax says she thought about it, but decided not to. Carly thinks, it’s a little soon after Oscar. She’ll tell Josslyn that he asked about her.

Felicia tells Anna that she didn’t say who her date was. Finn or Robert? Anna says she came with Finn. She loves Finn. She doesn’t know what Robert is doing, but it has to stop.

Mac sees Robert, and says he wasn’t expecting Robert to show up with Finn and Anna. He doesn’t think they did either. Robert insists it was a coincidence.

Mike introduces Yvonne to Bobbie, who tells them, best wishes and congratulations. She admires Yvonne’s ring.

Finn tells Chase, if everything works out, and Anna says yes, all is forgiven. Chase asks, what if she doesn’t? and Finn says he might not have to arrest Robert anyway. Finn sees Yvonne showing off the ring.

Alexis introduces Neil to Jax. Jax asks how he knows Alexis, and Alexis says, he doesn’t. Not in the way Jax thinks. It’s just a coincidence they’re sitting together. He’s a therapist. Jax asks if he’s seeing Alexis, and she says, yes; no. He’s treating her. This isn’t social. Well, it is, but… She shrugs. Neil takes it that Jax is an old friend. Jax says, his ex-wife actually.

Finn is sorry to take Sonny away from his family, but Sonny says whatever he’s going through seems important. Finn says, a little. The lady with Sonny’s father, the ring she’s wearing, it’s his. It’s special. He hates to do this, but he needs it back.

Anna wants to talk to Robert in private. He says, sounds important. She says, it is, and it’s not a joke.

Cameron sees a llama eating at the craft service table. He calls out, anybody lose a llama? He tells the llama, hold on one sec. He puts his guitar in the corner. He doesn’t want it messed up if this goes disastrous, which it probably will. Cameron doesn’t want to interrupt the llama’s snack, but someone could startle him, and he could get hurt. He’s going to grab the llama’s rope, and find out where he belongs. Cameron takes the llama’s lead, and pets him. He says, pretty weird, being backstage. The llama must feel out of place. Him too. He had this friend, and he died. It just seems so brutally unfair. Why is he the lucky one and gets to be alive? He guesses the question he should be asking is, what does he do with the life he has, and make the most of his chances? He’s going to start by finding out where the llama belongs. Felix comes in, and says, Budgie! He tells Cameron that Budgie thinks he’s a llama, and wandered off. They were frantic. He tells Budgie that his trailer awaits. Cameron tells Budgie, nice talking to you.

Ava says she can’t tell Scotty how much his loyalty and friendship mean to her. He says she wants him to keep out of her business. She says she and Doc know what they’re doing. Scotty says, the last time she said that, she ended up with Ryan. See how that turned out? Doc suggests they not miss any more of the Ball. They leave, and Scotty says, Lucy! the way Seinfeld used to say, Newman!

Sam tells Shiloh he looks good in his tux. At their table, Chase asks how Willow is holding up. she says, it would be a perfect night, but for Shiloh being here. At another table, Michael tells Sasha about being one of Milo’s Magic Wands. He didn’t pick the name. Sasha asks if Valentin performs, and he says, usually fully clothed.

Anna asks Robert why he ambushed her. He says he had to find some way to get in, but she’s not buying it. She says he purposely made it look like they came together. He says, so? and she says they didn’t do that. Finn is her date, and he’s being exasperating as an ex-husband.

Peter is glad he ran into Sam. He wanted to tell her about her sister Molly pitching an idea to him for an exposé. As in depth and hard-hitting of a piece as Lulu did on Ryan Chamberlain.

Scotty tells Lucy that she was supposed to get Doc in a compromising position. She tells him, don’t blame her. He was supposed to get Ava up to the suite sooner. She’s still just as determined to consciously uncouple Doc and Ava, but her first priority is the Ball.

Doc tells Ava that they should have expected something like that. She says maybe they would have if the relationship was real, and not a brilliant ruse to get Ryan out of hiding.

Anna says Robert sat next to her, and he says it was the seat he was assigned. She says he could have switched with Felicia or Mac. He says she’s right; he’s a bad boy. Can he go back now? She says not until they’ve dealt with the actual problem. He asks what that would be, and she says, even with all their history, especially with all their history, he can’t expect her try again with him.

Mike introduces Yvonne to Epiphany, who comments on what a rock Yvonne has. Yvonne says, it’s beautiful, and Epiphany says not as beautiful as her. Mike smiles proudly.

Kristina tells Josslyn, maybe a comedy? Josslyn says, this is a comedy. Kristina says, it’s not funny though; is it? Josslyn sees where it’s supposed to be or would be. Kristina says, if they weren’t both miserable? She knows she’s said it already, but it’s just them right now. She’s sorry about Oscar. Josslyn thanks her, and says, it actually helps when you’re hurting to know people care. Kristina wishes she’d realized that sooner. She could have saved them, and herself, a lot of trouble.

Jason and Spinelli go to the DOD house. They walk in, and Spinelli says Jason wasn’t kidding. They really do leave their door unlocked. Jason says, it’s Shiloh’s policy – except when he’s with Sam. He tells Spinelli that everything has to be perfect. Sam is setting Shiloh up tonight.

Sam and Shiloh sit at Peter’s table, and he introduces Shiloh to Lulu. Sam says Peter really blindsided her, saying Molly was writing a story. Lulu asks what it’s about, and Peter says, it’s a new organization that just opened up in Port Charles. It’s called Dawn of Day.

Peter says Molly is still in college, and will need mentoring. Lulu says she’d be happy to take Molly under her wing, but she knows nothing about DOD. Peter says Shiloh can fill her in. He’s their leader. Shiloh says, there is no leader per se. Maxie comes by, and tells him, save it. She asks why Sam is with him. Sam says she doesn’t judge Maxie’s dates, so she’d appreciate the same from Maxie. Maxie says, he only has one name, and it means he who has been sent. Sam says, it’s just a name, and Maxie says, it’s a perfect name for the leader of a cult.

Josslyn is checking out the Nurses Ball on her phone. Kristina says, any scandals? and Josslyn says, it wouldn’t be the Nurses Ball without them. Kristina looks at the phone, and asks, what is Sam doing there with Shiloh?    

Spinelli tells Jason, it’s looking good. They’re getting signals from all devices. Jason’s phone rings, and they jet out of the house. Jason says, it’s Kristina. He asks if she’s okay, and she says, Sam is at the Nurses Ball with Shiloh. Jason tells her, calm down, but she says Jason has to get Sam away from him. Jason says, trust him. It will all work out. She says, it won’t, and hangs up. Honestly, you’d think Kristina could figure this out.

Chase tells Willow that he has to prepare for his performance, but not to let Shiloh get to her. Or Nina. He leaves, and Sasha asks what he meant about Nina. Willow says she hasn’t been asked back to the elementary school. Sasha says, she was fired because of Nina? Willow says, there were several reasons, but one of them was Nina. Michael says there are a lot of private schools there. He’s sure she can get references from community leaders. She says she couldn’t impose, and Sasha tells her, don’t argue. Michael is a relentlessly decent guy. Resistance is futile.

Nina wonders if Michael can get Sasha to stay in Port Charles. Valentin didn’t realize things were happening so quickly between Sasha and Michael. Nina says it happened between them quickly. Maybe it’s an inherited trait. They kiss.

Robert says Anna thinks he wants them try again? She says, don’t deny it. She loves him, and always will, but she has to say no. She can’t marry him. She’s in love with Finn. Robert gets that, and she tells him, stop pursuing her. What they had is in the past. She walks away.

Sonny and Finn approach Mike. Sonny tells Mike, there’s a problem with the ring. It’s a fake. Mike bought a bum ring. Mike says he didn’t. Is Sonny sure? Sonny says, positive. Mike says he can’t take the ring back. It will break Yvonne’s heart. Finn understands, and has a suggestion. He shows Mike the replacement ring, and asks what he thinks. Sonny says, it’s a beautiful ring; the real deal. He can just explain the situation to Yvonne, and everything will be okay.

Lucy hopes everyone is having fun. She wants them to welcome back the next performer. Everyone has really anticipated his performance. Last year, he brought down the house. This detective has moves so arresting, he makes you want to write bad checks. Chase sings Something Just Like This. He’s so good, and definitely has the moves. He motions for Willow to come up. She shakes her head, but he brings her up on stage. Even though they didn’t rehearse, and as far as I know, have never even danced together, they dance perfectly. Sam smiles. Shiloh, not so much. Chase and Willow kiss.

Finn asks if he can talk to Robert, and Robert says, if he must. He says, despite Robert’s best efforts to sabotage him, he’s still proposing to Anna with the ring he intended to give her. Robert says, goody; he found it. He doesn’t suppose he can have the one back he replaced it with. Finn says, if only he could. Robert says, let him guess. Finn lost it. Finn says he knows exactly where it is, but don’t worry. Robert will be pleased to know it went to a good cause.

Yvonne says she likes the ring Mike gave her, but this one is so much better. Mike says, that’s all that matters. Sonny says they have to go back to Turning Woods, and Carly says they’ll walk Yvonne and Mike out. Mike hangs back, and says he and Sonny did a number last year, right? Sonny says they sure did, and Mike says Summer Wind. It was a good night. Sonny says, the best, and they hug. I wish they’d sing again, but I guess that’s not happening.

Lucy sees Cameron, and asks if he spoke with Josslyn. He says, no, and Lucy says he should know she’s not performing. Is he okay? He says he’s good to go, and she tells him, the show has to go on. She thanks him for saving her llama.

Everyone applauds as Chase and Willow go back to their table. Willow says, it was amazing. She had so much fun, but he’d better watch out. Groupies of all ages will be throwing themselves at him. He says, of all the screaming fangirls in the world, there’s only one woman for him.

Carly tells Jax that Josslyn said he looked handsome. He says, she’s a brave girl, and Carly says, the bravest. He thinks they should honor that courage, and not go home to check on her. She says they’re still texting though, right? He says, every half hour, and she says, his turn.

Cameron goes to Sonny’s house. Josslyn says his tux looks great. He says, no disasters yet. He has an Uber outside. The driver is really nice, and said she’d wait if Josslyn wants to change and come. Josslyn says, thanks, but she’d feel like more of a loser if she showed up and didn’t sing. She can’t. She thought about it, and even tried practicing, but it’s a duet. She can’t sing it without Oscar. Cameron gets it. He didn’t come to guilt her, but he brought her a message from Oscar.

In the hallway, Shiloh tells Sam that he needed a breather from her friend. Sam says Maxie isn’t so much a friend. Shiloh says, she called DOD a cult (like that’s never happened before), but he can’t hold Sam responsible. She gets his mission. Kristina appears, and tells Shiloh, get the hell away from her.

Spinelli and Jason get back to the MetroCourt. Spinelli says, mission accomplished. They have every inch of DOD wired, but they can’t be sure Shiloh will incriminate himself. Jason says, it doesn’t matter. This ends tonight.

Lucy talks about Robin. Robert tells Finn that Anna is about to speak. He’s Robin’s father, and he’s joining her on stage. Lucy says they love Robin, and miss her, but they’re fortunate that, in her absence, they have her also extraordinary mother there to tell them the importance of what tonight is all about. Anna takes the stage. She says her daughter is a woman of passion, a fighter, and a healer. Passion, fight, and healing are what the Nurses Ball is all about. Robin was diagnosed with HIV in 1995; a death sentence at that time. It’s taken the lives of so many loved ones, in particular, Stone, but her daughter’s death sentence became a life sentence. Where there’s life, there’s hope, and she doesn’t want them to forget, that’s the true meaning behind tonight – hope.

In the wings, Robert tells Finn that, Anna is one incredible woman. He’d better make her happy. All of a sudden, the ring rolls out and stops at her feet. Finn looks at Robert.

Tomorrow, Finn proposes to Anna, Lucy says something fishy is going on, and Sonny tells Shiloh to stay away from his daughter.

Vanderpump Rules – The Reunion – Part Three

We rewind a little to where Andy asks James if he’s still helping his family. Kristen says they act like he’s the only one helping his family. Katie says she’s been going through a helluva ride, and his parents got divorced, poor thing. Kristen says, he was raised by effing a-holes, but Lisa tells her, don’t talk like that; it’s going too far. James walks out, saying, he’s not listening to sh*t about his family without ripping someone’s head off. Lisa tells the group, take a breath. They’re not doing themselves any favors. Andy says Kristen keeps jumping into every question.

Lisa tells James, don’t walk away. He’ll lose the battle. He says he’s already won. She says he’s part of the show. He needs to pull himself together, and defend himself. Katie says people hate her because she stood up for herself. People told her to kill herself because she did something to James’s family. Lala says they need to quit talking about people’s parents. Lisa comes back with James, and asks if they’re good now.

Andy wisely changes the subject. He asks about Lala’s anxiety attacks, and she says they were driven by alcohol. We flash back to her freak-out at dinner in Mexico. She says she wanted to crawl out of her own skin. She wasn’t near Rand, her mom was far away, and her dad was gone. Andy says Scheana claimed everyone was up Lala’s ass, and treated her like she could do no wrong even before her dad passed away. He asks if Scheana has any examples, except for Lala not wanting to make out with her. We flash back to Scheana griping about that. Scheana thinks she had some insecurities, and felt like all of Lala’s other friends came first. Lala says she never wants Scheana to feel like her friendship is on the back burner. If she needs to try harder, she’ll make that happen.

Andy asks how Schwartz felt when he and Katie took the lead in the controversy surrounding inviting white Kanye to Mexico. Schwartz says he didn’t think it would be a problem. He thought enough time had passed, that it was safe. He was caught in the moment; he’s a softie. Andy asks how it made James feel when Tom got the brunt of the blame. Ariana says, in reality, they agreed. Schwartz says he knew he effed up, and it was a moment of cowardice. Katie’s voice is scary, and he didn’t know what to do. Andy asks why James would want to go somewhere, that clearly, several people didn’t want him to. He says he as curious. He’d been on all the trips. The Miami trip was fantastic. The group thought he’d be the liability of the Hawaii trip. We flash back to Jax saying James is obnoxious. James says he laughed when Jax got arrested. He wasn’t the liability. He became an international DJ when he worked in Mexico. It was all happening. He thought he’d earned the right to go on the next trip, and at the time, it hurt his feelings.

Moving on. Andy brings up Katie and Tom’s fight, where Tom blamed Katie for James losing his job and called her a bully. He asks if Tom thinks she’s responsible for James losing his job. James says, it’s irrelevant. It doesn’t mean what he did was okay, or he’s right, but Tom was pissed at the ultimatum and outcome. Tom says he thought if Katie hadn’t said anything, James wouldn’t have lost his job. It was bottled up in him. Schwartz says, back in the day, she said come pretty rough things. We flash back to Katie calling Lala a whore, and telling Schwartz, no wonder his d*ck doesn’t work. Schwartz says she’s a changed person. She’s come a long way, and matured. He loves her. Andy says Katie’s go-to insult is critiquing his d*ck. We see a clip of Schwartz saying he has a classic penis. Andy says they’re going to say it so much, it won’t work. Schwartz says it’s a nice, old-fashioned penis. Andy says Katie was penis shaming.

Andy welcome Stassi’s beau, Beau. He asks Beau if his suit is more comfortable than the dinosaur outfit. Beau says he has the dinosaur costume with him, but Stassi said. We go down the Memory Lane of Stassi’s exes, and see clips of their various antics. Jax flipped off everyone at SUR. Frank threatened to pull a customer’s underwear over his head. Patrick made unwanted comments on Lisa’s ass. Andy asks, where does Beau rank? He says Lisa loves him, and even tweeted that she loves her some Beau. Lisa says he’s lucky to have Stassi too. She’s bright and beautiful, but with her insecurities, thinks she’ll screw up. She wants Stassi to get it out of her head. Andy says Stassi put Patrick on a pedestal, and then said in her podcast that he’d cheated. Katie is shocked, saying she didn’t know about this. Stassi says the day she was moving from NYC to L.A,, she was using Patrick’s computer, and found texts between him and some, like, model that were very explicit. She didn’t want to just slink out, since she’d just told everyone she was in a new relationship. She was mortified. Beau is happy she did it. Andy asks if she made Beau happy, and Beau says, she did. Andy asks if Beau watched show when they started dating. Beau says he watched the pilot to see what he was getting into. Andy asks if it didn’t scare him, and Beau says, eff yeah. Kristen set them up. She and Beau met when she was doing an independent film, and they kissed. We see some clips from The Loneliness of the Long Distance Dreamer. Andy asks if it went further, but that’s a no. Jax says, this is the most incestuous group ever.

Andy asks about the first night in Mexico, when Stassi was arguing about going to bed. How does Beau keep cool when Stassi goes off the deep end? Beau says he gets help from friends. Andy asks what triggers Stassi’s rages? and Beau says, alcohol, Adderall past influence in relationships. He’s done nothing to make her think he’d do something shady. Andy says Stassi gave him a hard time at the club for encouraging her to have fun with her friends. Stassi says, all the girls were dancing, and she had on a maxi dress with oatmeal-colored Spanx that she’d cut the crotch out of so she could use the bathroom. She didn’t want everyone to look up and see. She didn’t feel hot, and Beau annoyed her when he kept telling her to go. She said no. He says he didn’t know she was wearing oatmeal-colored Spanx with the crotch cut out. Stassi says it’s embarrassing to say. Andy reminds Beau that he said he felt like a battered boyfriend, which was brutal. It was just over and over again.  The dark passenger snapped at the club, and his bottled feelings came out at the hotel. The old stuff and Stassi’s insecurities combined with alcohol makes the dark passenger come out. He doesn’t think it’s some deep persona thing. Andy asks who’s scarier; the dark passenger or tequila Katie. Schwartz thinks it’s Katie, but says the two of them could take over the world. Andy asks if it makes Stassi feel at risk of losing Beau if she doesn’t change her behavior. Stassi says, yes. She wants to find out what’s making her life this. She’s hurting her friends, Beau, and herself. She’s not taking Adderall again. Andy asks Beau if her behavior has changed, and they both say yes. Andy brings up Stassi’s mother telling her not to be herself or she’ll mess it up. Beau says he had no idea why her mother would say something like that. Stassi says it sticks with her, and she thinks something’s totally wrong with herself. Andy adds insult to injury by reminding Stassi that her mother also said she hoped Stassi would grow up to be half the woman Kristen is. We flash back to that. Stassi says she didn’t know about it, and it was hard to watch. Andy asks where she and her mother stand now. Stassi says they didn’t speak for eight months, but just this past weekend, she went to her sister’s bridal shower, and they talked. Her mother apologized and took ownership of what she’d done, and they both cried. It was awesome, and she’s happy about it, since she missed her mom. Everyone gets a little teary. Well, probably not James.

Andy says Jax seemed freaked out when the women arrived at the guy’s weekend. Jax says he felt guilty just being in the same room with them. He knows just because things are okay now, he still has work to do, and he’s treading water. He told Beau that the girls would probably be mad if they tell them, but they’ll find out anyway, so they’d better. Stassi says it was the right choice, but she wanted to FaceTime with those skanks. We move on to Kristen, and flash back to her freefalling in wine country. Andy says she got triggered by James DJing a party at PUMP. Does that really affect her? She wishes it didn’t. She thought she was fine. James tells her to get over it. He says she’s obsessed with him, and she has to get over him. Stassi sticks by saying she thinks it was really Carter that was the problem, and doesn’t think Kristen is obsessed with James. He triggered it, but they all knew what was going on with Carter. We see clips of Kristen complaining. Kristen insists it wasn’t about her and Carter, and she got upset when Stassi intermixed the two. Andy asks what issue broke Carter and Kristen up, and she says he didn’t respect her enough to pay his way. She felt taken advantage of. Beau thinks that Kristen vents so much about the bad, it’s all they hear. They never heard the good stuff. Andy says the girls accused Kristen of fighting in private, and acting like everything was okay in public. She says Carter was trying to make a shift; whatever it took. It doesn’t matter what caused it. Stassi says it does to her. It should be what Kristen wants, and not because of what other people think. Kristen says they made a choice not to be together. Andy reminds Kristen that she said if she ever gets married, it would be to Carter. She stands by that, and admits they still live together. Their dog was mauled by a Pitbull and she needed him. They don’t sleep in same bed every night, and they’ve only had sex twice. Andy says, it’s confusing. Stassi says they’re like Scheana and Adam. Scheana says they’re best friends, but they sleep together. Kristen says Stassi’s tough love doesn’t work for her. She doesn’t know how get him out. She cries alone, because they’re annoyed, and she’s afraid to call. Katie says Kristen is settling to be unhappy. She’s trying to make herself happy in a situation that’s no good for her. Kristen says she listened to Katie and Schwartz for eight years, and never walked away. Katie says they’re not walking away. Andy asks if the issue is that she should just get Carter’s ass out of the house. Kristen says it’s none of their business, but Katie says Kristen wants Carter to love her, and made it her business for over two years. Forgive her for having an opinion. Kristen says she does. Andy says Beau was friends with Patrick before he dated Stassi. How’s that going now? Beau says they text once in a while, but it’s been hard since Stassi’s break from him. Stassi says Patrick is scared of her. Andy tells her social media says Beau is the best thing for her; an upgrade from Jax. Stassi says she and Jax both upgraded. Andy asks Stassi if it’s hard to be not the most liked person in the relationship. She says she’s getting used to it. Stassi says she got everything she told her friends that she wanted. She wanted someone who could be friends with her friends, and do the same things she likes to do; an actual partner. Beau whispers, I love you, and Stassi returns the whisper. Everyone is like, aww! On that note, it’s time for Beau to skedaddle.

Andy says in the Mexican hotel, Schwartz’s balls were as big as anything. We flash back to Schwartz and Katie’s fight. Andy wonders where that all came from, and Schwartz said it had built up. The last rumblings of pent up resentment from early on, and was like one least burp. It was cathartic, but he felt terrible. Andy says the root of what Katie was saying is that he was working so hard, and she wanted to spend time Lisa says lot of people have jobs, and are still committed. Katie says Schwartz isn’t good at listening. Before Andy wraps up the Mexico conversation, he wants to know if Schwartz’s grand romantic gesture, of a violinist and junk food, worked. Did they make mad passionate love? Katie says she had Montezuma’s Revenge. Schwartz says he was on the verge, and Jax says they all had severe anal leakage. Andy is like, alrighty then.

He says when he thinks of rivalries, he thinks of the Hatfields and McCoys, the Red Sox and the Yankees, and Kristen and Ariana. He asks Tom if it’s weird seeing his ex and current girlfriends being friends. He says, it’s not that bad. Brittany wonders which is weirder; Tom and James being friends, or Ariana and Kristen. Ariana thinks the most weird thing is Jax and Tom being friends. Tom doesn’t think it’s weird, considering the other people who have made up. Andy asks if Kristen still thinks that Tom and Ariana did something inappropriate when she and Tom were together. She does, but it doesn’t matter anymore. Ariana says they did kiss in a pool in Vegas, so there was that.

Andy says from the moment Jax proposed, Brittany was planning her engagement party. He asks if she had the fairytale theme in mind already. She says she knew she would get married in a castle, so it followed the theme. Andy asks why the bigger Bridezilla will be; Brittany or Jax? Stassi says Brittany is Brattany. She knows what she wants. If she wants a cherry blossom tree that has to be shipped in from Japan, it’s going to happen. We find out Lala has become a bridesmaid. Brittany says she felt badly about it, because they are really close. She and the girls all have a bond. They understand each other and what they’re all going through better than anyone. Andy asks how many bridesmaids she has, and Brittany says, eleven bridesmaids and one bridesman. Andy asks why Kristen thought she should be maid-of-honor. Kristen says Brittany’s brother had said she was Brittany’s best friend in LA, so she figured it was a sure thing. Brittany says it breaks her heart that Kristen felt that way, but thought it was more appropriate for Katie to take that role. Stassi tells Ariana that she’s not picking bridesmaids. It’s too stressful.

Andy was impressed with Lisa’s beer bong. Lisa says there’s nobody else she’d do that for, and she’s never doing it again. It shot ninety miles an hour down her throat. We flash back to her burp, and Andy says, it was a great exit.

Andy points out that Tom ticked off a list of lies Jax has told over the years in the finale. Andy asks if Jax heard about it, and he says, no. Brittany reminds him that they watched the episode together. They laughed about it, because it was true. Brittany tells Andy that Jax would never say he didn’t eff up in the past. Tom says Jax had a Chanel fragrance ad in his portfolio for as long as Tom has known him, and it’s way not him. Stassi says, it doesn’t look like you, but omg, cool! Tom says something about Channing Tatum rooming with Jax, and Jax insists it’s true. It was in the beginning of his career. Tom says he was a model before Jax, and Channing was blowing up after doing a Mountain Dew ad. Jax says that’s when he left. He was nineteen, and it was a big deal. My high school boyfriend was roommates with Christopher Reeve before he was Superman, so it’s possible. Andy asks Lisa how she thinks Jax will do as a married man. She hopes well. She thinks Brittany is his best asset. She knows how control him to a certain extent. Jax says he’s still a work in progress, but he’s devoted to changing. Andy says he’s heard Jax say he was a work in progress before, but Jax says he always will be. No matter how much he changes, that old person will always be there. Lisa comparing him to Ken was an honor. Lisa says it wasn’t a positive, but Jax thinks it’s a compliment because Ken came out the other side, and he’s a great dude.

Andy says the engagement party meant something else to Scheana. Scheana says she’s never seen Adam that angry. We flash back to that, and Scheana says that’s what triggered her emotions. She never thought he’d speak to her again. Andy tells her that she kept saying she and Adam were just friends, but when he wasn’t giving her enough attention, she set up a date with a hot model. Lisa says it’s the worst choice she ever made. Well, there is Shay. Andy says then she got Adam’s attention. He asks if she was interested in Ethan or was she just setting up Adam to pay attention. Scheana says she met Ethan on Watch What Happens Live in LA. He was one of the guys who was fanning NeNe. They’ve been talking since then, which really didn’t answer the question. They discuss Botox, which Stassi says Scheana has been getting since she was twelve. Scheana says she’s going to be thirty-three, and this is how she can get a twenty-five year old.  Andy says she looks great, but she’s still young, and he thinks Botox makes you look older. I think it just makes you look freaky. Not to leave any personal stone unturned, Andy asks if she was thinking about Adam while having sex with Ethan. She admits he crossed her mind, and she felt badly about it. Andy asks how Adam reacted to the penguin, and she says he loves penguins like Stassi loves ranch dressing. It worked. She’s continued dating other people, but he hasn’t been with anyone. I wonder, how is this working? and also why Andy doesn’t ask, since he’s been so intrusive. Andy asks her about Adam not going downtown, and she says they’d go right to it without much foreplay. Lisa thinks in a relationship, if you’re not willing to go downtown, it’s a huge disrespect. Scheana says he did it the next day. There’s a TMI explosion in my head.

Andy says Brittany’s whole family was in town for the engagement party. He knows her mom and memaw love Jax, but where does he stand with the other members of the family. Brittany says she was surprised when she saw the footage, and didn’t like how Jax treated them. We see the clip where Jax says he’ll always be number one. She says she screamed bloody murder. Don’t disrespect her family. Jax agrees that he was inappropriate, but says there was a lot of pressure, and he was also entertaining his sister. He was having a couple of drinks, and trying to relax, when Brittany’s brothers kept giving him a list of what he needed to do for her. He thought, what about him? Andy asks if anyone got offended when Jax said he bought Brittany’s brother a baby. The vernacular was not great. Brittany says Jax doesn’t know how to speak; he doesn’t have a mom and dad. Andy says he has a mom. He’s not Dr. Phil, but wonders if Jax’s mom is invited to the wedding. Brittany says it’s still up in air. Andy says life is short, and Jax says he knows that. Brittany thinks his mother should try to reach out. She asks what Lisa thinks, and Lisa says she can see his pain, and as a mother, it’s incumbent on her to reach out. Brittany says they wanted to see his dad, and she told them to wait. Jax says he doesn’t have a mother, but Lisa says until recently. It’s going to hurt his mother when she sees this. He should say he wishes she’d reach out. Brittany says, Marie, please reach out. Jax says he’s the only man in the family, and doesn’t understand why she didn’t talk to him. Regardless of what his dad said, he would have called and told them he’s not going to make it; get on a plane. Andy asks how they think his father would feel about the engagement. Jax says he loved Brittany. Brittany says Jenny sent her texts about how he would love her, and she’s saving them forever.

James tells Stassi to get off his d*ck. Stassi says he won’t shut up, and stop telling her to shut up. He has no right to talk to her like that; it’s disgusting. Brittany says, it’s not okay. That’s why he’s never going to be around her again. He was talking about her family. James says Jax was talking sh*t about Raquel, and Andy says Brittany has never said a bad word to him. Why was he taking it out on her? She’s the nicest one in the room. James says he felt like it. He knows it’s not nice, okay? Lisa says, it’s not okay. He asks what she wants him to say. She says he’s going to lose any bit of support he has, and he asks if that’s a threat from her. She tells him that she’s saying, unless he changes, he’s going to lose the support he has. Andy says, James is no longer at SUR, and his relationship with the group has frayed; what’s in store? James says he’s making music, traveling America, and DJing. There’s a lot he’s working on, and he has high, high hopes.

Andy asks Schwartz how he felt about the audience reaction to Katie, and the haters. He says it took willpower not go after them, but he knows better than to feed the trolls. His wife is sexy and beautiful, and he loves her. Suck his classic d*ck.

Peter is standing by with cocktails, along with Ken, who has a tray of memaw’s beer cheese. Andy asks Lisa who she thinks will be first to have a PUMP baby. Shouldn’t that be a SUR baby? She thinks it will be Brittany, and Jax says, she’s already pregnant. Brittany says he’s just kidding. She wants to have fun at the wedding. Andy says nothing is coming between her and having fun at her wedding. They all say, cheers, and Lala toasts with cheese. They don’t seem to like the shots very much, and Brittany tells them, chase it with the beer cheese.

The end. For now
