What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

In Puerto Rico. Michael says he has seen Cassandra before, in Port Charles at the MetroCourt restaurant. His mom is the owner, and he’s there all the time. She says he has a good memory for faces. It was a couple of years ago. She’d been there for a meeting, hoping to interest Michael’s father in a business proposal. Sasha says she must not be in the fashion industry, and Cassandra says she likes to keep up with the trends, but no. Michael asks what business she’s in, and she says, nothing nearly as exciting. Import/export.

Nina downs her drink, and on the side, Valentin tells her to pace herself. One of the drinks has the truth serum in it. She asks, which one? but he says, it’s hard tell now, since everyone has their glasses. She tells him to stay near her, and if she rambles, stop her. Jax tells Finn that he wants to be clear, he and Hayden are business associates; nothing more. Any indication that she’s given Finn that they’re together isn’t true.

In a hallway upstairs, Hayden says, if Valentin is following Nikolas’s footsteps, this should be the office. She starts to open a door, and is startled by someone behind her. A housekeeper asks what she thinks she’s doing.

Lulu drinks to true love; something Peter knows nothing about. Her doorbell rings, and she says, go away. Laura says, let her in. Lulu opens the door, and Laura tells her, it’s nasty out there. Lulu is lucky she has no place to be. Lulu says, no place to be; no one to be with. She’s so lucky. She drinks some more.

Carly calls Enrique in Puerto Rico. She’s wondering how Michael is doing, and if he’s having a good time. She wants to send them some champagne. Sonny takes the phone from her hand, and talks to Enrique in Spanish, including Carly’s name. Carly asks if Sonny just told him not to accept her calls. He says, his island, his rules.

Alexis and Neil are in the elevator, when it stops. Neil says, it must be the storm. The power is out, Alexis says, excellent, and Neil says it looks like they’re stuck.

Cassandra says she almost feels guilty; it’s storming back home. Sasha hopes Nina’s dinner party wasn’t rained out. She tells Cassandra that Jasper Jax and Hayden Barnes are the dinner guests. Why she would tell a total stranger this, I have no idea. Cassandra says, the names sound familiar. Maybe their paths crossed in Italy. She excuses herself to make a phone call. Sasha says, she seems nice. Michael says he knows who’s nicer, and Sasha says it had better be her. He says, definitely her, and they kiss.

Carly tells the MetroCourt patrons that she’s sure they came out for a nice, relaxing dinner, but the storm had other plans. The MetroCourt is going to take care of them though; the night is on them. If they haven’t received an entrée yet, they can’t cook with no electricity, but there are cold items and a generous wine list. She tells them, enjoy their evening. Sonny says, that’s pricey, but she says everyone will talk about how fabulous they are. Besides, her hotel, her rules.

Neil pushes the elevator buttons. Alexis says he was right about Kristina going to group therapy. Kristina thinks it’s helpful to talk to other cult survivors. He continues pressing all the buttons, and she tells him, stop doing that. They’re going to be in there until the power comes back, or someone comes to get them. He says he has no phone service. He’s got to get out. She says she has places to be too, but they’re there for the foreseeable future. Why doesn’t he bill her? They can do a session, and make good use of the time. He says he’s serious; he has to get out. She asks, what’s wrong? Is he claustrophobic? He says, no, but she says he’s clearly upset. It can’t just be because he’s stuck with her, could it? It’s a little extreme for that. He repeats that he has someplace he needs to be.

Hayden says she must have gotten turned around. The housekeeper wonders who she is, and Hayden introduces herself. The housekeeper asks if Valentin knows she’s there, and Hayden says she’s an invited dinner guest. She was looking for the restroom. The housekeeper says, that’s not it, and Hayden says she used to live there. She thought she could find her way, and was over-confident. The housekeeper asks if Hayden would like her to show the way back, and Hayden says, please.

Jax tells Nina that he was thinking about the idea she pitched, in the light of the favorable response to the Ava issue. Valentin thinks he’s downplaying that, and Nina says, it was a home run. Jax says he’s concerned about a continuing series on dangerous women. Nina suggests calling them complex or mysterious. She can think up a fabulous title. Jax says he doesn’t want their magazine to be the one that glorifies murder. The Ava issue was a one-off. Nina says, creativity is a bad idea that leads to a good one. There are a lot of interesting women. Helena Cassadine. Valentin says, no, and Jax agrees. Nina says, what about Cassandra Pierce? Finn nearly chokes on his drink. The woman comes in with Hayden, saying, she lost her way – or so she says.

Alexis asks Neil if she’s allowed to ask where, or is it a violation of their boundaries? Neil says his daughter died five years ago tonight. Alexis says she’s sorry. She doesn’t know what to say. He says, it’s almost cliché. A therapist who can help everyone, but those closest to him. He doesn’t know where or how, but somewhere, his daughter became a lost soul. Every time he tried to reach out… He says she knows how it is.

Laura gives Lulu some coffee. Lulu asks if Laura is sure she doesn’t want to open another bottle of wine. Laura is sure, and Lulu says, party pooper. Laura asks if that’s what this is; a party? Talk to her. Lulu says she’s trying to understand why Dante left. She’s put herself in his shoes. What would she have done? On one hand, as an objective outsider, she can see his perspective. But as his wife and the mother of his children… Laura says she’s sorry. She hates that this is happening to Lulu. Lulu says, that’s it exactly. It’s happening to her. She has no say and no choice. Not when Dante left, and certainly not when the divorce papers were delivered. Now she has to decide whether to let her marriage end or fight. No discussion, just an enormous decision she has to make completely alone. Laura says she knows it’s very hard, frustrating, and scary, but Lulu’s not alone.

The housekeeper says she found Hayden trying get in Valentin’s office. Jax says she must be mistaken. Windymere is a bit of a maze. She says, Hayden lived there, but Jax says, it was years ago, and Hayden has a notoriously bad sense of direction. She probably couldn’t find the powder room. Hayden says, no. She was snooping, and this lady busted her.

Carly tells Sonny that she’s calling the company who makes the generator. They’re going to fix it, and give her restitution, or she’ll sic Diane on them.

Alexis says that explains why Neil dedicated his life to helping others get out. He says he’s sorry. This is supposed to be her session, not his. Alexis sits on the floor. She says she’s had her share of AA meetings. She’s become an expert listener. Neil sits, and says, there were all the tell-tale patterns. She cut off her family, turned from her friends, and sold all of her possessions. Alexis says, and gave them the money, like Kristina did. He says, partly. This cult was into drugs. Alexis says, it must have been terrifying. He says he tried the tactics he used on others, but none of them worked on his own daughter. She took her own life. She was found in a bathtub, an empty bottle of pills on the floor, and pronounced dead right about now, at 9:47.

Alexis says now she knows why this night means something to him. She’s truly sorry he’s not getting to have a memorial for his daughter. Hopefully, it was postponed because of the storm. He says, it’s not that kind of memorial. Every year on the anniversary, he goes to a karaoke bar and sings a song from her childhood. She had trouble sleeping some nights, and the song put her out. He says, it’s a strange way to celebrate his daughter’s life, but Alexis says, not at all; it’s beautiful. She has trouble imagining him singing karaoke though. He says, it’s not pretty, but Joanna loved it. Until she joined the cult. She was fearless like that. Him, not so much. It’s a test every year to see if he can get through the song. Alexis says, but he does, and he says, yeah. A tribute to his daughter and an act of penance all in one. She asks, what song? and he says, Hush Little Baby (apparently, the only song ever sung to a child). Since they’re stuck in there, the guys will be spared this year. She says she’s not. She’s a captive audience; so sing.

Laura tells Lulu, Dante is a good man, who loves her and the kids more than anything. Lulu says, that’s what makes it so insane. Laura says, if he considers himself so broken that he’s willing to give them up, Lulu might not agree, but she can respect where the decision came from. Sometimes things can’t be fixed, and more damage is done by hanging on, and not accepting the loss. Lulu says she doesn’t want this. Laura says, if Lulu wants to fight it, she’s behind her 100%. All she can say is that she believes Dante made the choice out of love, and she doesn’t think he took it lightly. If he considers himself this far gone, maybe he is.

Sasha asks Michael what it was like, growing up with his own island. He says he was a holy terror as a kid, and she says, no way. He says, there were some rocky times. Times when it was really dangerous, or his parents were fighting and at odds, and they’d send the kids there. it was a safe haven. They could put away the crap hanging over them in Port Charles. It was still there when they came back, but while they were at the island, they didn’t think about it. A lot of people had troubles with their childhoods, but never had a refuge like this. (How insightful. Really, Michael?) He says he relaxes when he’s there. Sasha says, that’s what different.

Jax tells Hayden that she’s funny. She says, no. She went looking for Valentin’s office, knowing what she was doing. She was looking for the diamonds. Nina says, what diamonds? and Jax says they were something she left behind, and was hoping to locate them. Fleur says she needs to get back to Charlotte. She’s in the taxidermy room naming all the animals. Jax says, not every little girl likes taxidermy, and Fleur says, Charlotte isn’t every little girl.  Nina says, if Hayden wanted access, why didn’t she just ask? Jax says she didn’t want them to think she had an ulterior motive. She just wanted to reclaim what’s hers. Hayden walks over to Finn, and asks if he ever thinks about her. She can’t stop thinking about him. I guess we know who got the truth serum.

Michael says, so Sasha thinks he’s guarded and stiff. She says she didn’t say stiff. He’s warm and charming, and a million other wonderful things when they’re at home. People respect him, and the companies he runs. She starts listing his assets and the charities he’s involved with, and he says he gets it. There, he’s loosey goosey. Sasha finds a $25 chip on the floor, and gets all excited. Michael asks if she wants to skip sailing and go gambling. She says, that would be awesome, and he asks if she wants to gamble with real money or the house’s’ money. She asks what he means. He says the dealers are let known that the guest is going to win, and they have the best luck. Sasha says, that’s cheating, and he says, basically. She wants no part of that. She’s limiting herself to $100. If she wins, great; if she loses, so be it. He says she’ll only have to cough up $75. Cassandra returns, and asks if they’d like to join her for breakfast tomorrow at 8:30. They agree to be there, and she watches them leave.

Jax tells Hayden that she looks flushed. He’s getting her some water. He tries to drag her away from Finn, but she says she needs a moment alone with him. She brings Finn into another room. Valentin asks Jax if he thinks she’s all right. Jax says he’s not sure. He’s trying to figure out how she got so drunk on one drink. Nina says, Valentin makes strong martinis, and Jax says maybe she should stick to champagne next time. Nina says that’s his trademark. He brought it to her office to celebrate the magazine. He asks why she’s saying celebrate like it’s in quotes, and she says his own agenda was written all over it. He was trying to butter her up.

Lulu says it sounds like Laura is telling her to give up on her husband. Laura says she wants Lulu to trust her husband. Believe he has their best interests at heart. Laura believes he does. Lulu says she still doesn’t know what to do. Laura says she gets it, but this is life; things change. If she hadn’t been able to let go of Lulu’s father, she never would have found the happiness she has with Doc. It doesn’t happen for everyone, but sometimes life has a second act. She’s grateful she got hers.

Dev brings out a tray with caviar and champagne, and Carly asks what he’s doing. He says he thought she’d be okay with it, and she says, if it’s going to go bad, she is, but who gave him the keys to the champagne closet? He says he picked the lock. If she wants to keep it safe, she needs to up security. He goes back to work, and Carly tells Sonny, on one hand, she appreciates his initiative, but on the other, they won’t be able to afford it. Sonny says he’s got her covered.

Neil tells Alexis that she’s crazy, and she says that’s why she’s seeing a shrink. He says, the whole point is that he goes someplace where no one knows his name. She says, the anti-Cheers. He says, it’s between Joanna and himself. She says she’ll turn away and put her hands over her ears. Don’t let this stop him from doing something he needs to. He thanks her, but no. She says she’s apologizing in advance, but she has no choice. She starts to sing, hush, little baby, don’t say a word…

Hayden tells Finn that he’s stalling. Answer the question. Does he still think of her? He says, it doesn’t matter. He’s moved on. Hayden asks if he loves Anna, and he says he does. Hayden broke him when she left. It took him a long time to pick up the pieces, but he did. She says she knows he hates her. He says she saved his life, and she says he saved hers first. He says he couldn’t hate her, but she says she doesn’t know that.

Nina says it’s impossible to trust Jax. Valentin says his offer to buy the magazine still stands. No questions asked. Jax says he loves Crimson too, and he loves working with Nina. There’s nothing nefarious. He looks forward to the day he can prove that. Finn comes in, and says Hayden needs water. Hayden says she gets it; he’s moved on. But that doesn’t change the fact… She trails off.

Sasha is just out of the shower, and Michael asks if she’s okay. She says the last thing she feels like doing is putting on makeup and getting dressed. He says, the casino will still be there, and she has a standing invite. She says, and she has a $25 chip. He says, it’s fate. She has to come back. One question though. Since she doesn’t want to go gambling, what does she want to do instead? She kisses him, and they get busy during a song part.

Dev serves champagne. Sonny calls him over. Dev asks if there’s something wrong, and Sonny says, the opposite. Carly says, he’s doing a great job, and Sonny says he wants to give Dev more responsibility – working for him. He has a job if Dev wants it. Dev says he does, and asks if he’s to report to Jason or Sonny. He wants to learn from the best. Sonny says that’s exactly what he’ll be doing. Learning about the coffee business.

Neil and Alexis sing together. When the song is done, they look at each other. The elevator starts to move.

On the phone, Cassandra says, don’t say anything; just listen. She’s been compromised, and needs to relocate again needs to get something. A little gift for a new friend.

During pillow talk, Sasha thanks Michael for bringing her there; it’s special. He says he’s loved the island all his life, but this is the best time he’s had. She asks, why is that? and he says, Manuel’s mojitos, and adds, because of her. She asks if he answers every question with a joke first. He tells her that she’ll get used to it, and she says she plans to. They get busy again.

Carly says, what a night, and tells Sonny, Sasha is a nice girl. It’s nice (WOTD) to see Michael with someone his speed, enjoying life again as an adult. Sonny says, don’t mess things up. She says she’s not getting involved. She just wants to know how things are going. Sonny says, when Michael tells her, she’ll know. She says they should go to the island. He says, yeah, yeah, and steers her out.

Laura says, it looks like the rain stopped. Lulu thanks Laura for riding it out with her. The storm outside and the one that’s her life. Laura says she’ll figure it out. She’s just a phone call or text away. They hug, and Laura says, no more wine. Lulu agrees, and Laura leaves. Lulu looks around at her empty place, and looks at the divorce papers.

Neil tells Alexis, it looks like the power is back on, and Alexis says, that’s good news. They look at each other.

Valentin tells Finn, good news. The storm has passed, and the launch is ready. Finn says, it’s great news. As he leaves, he says, sorry again for interrupting. Have a beautiful evening. Outside, he leans against the door for a moment.

Jax says they’re heading out too. Hayden says, they are? Jax says they don’t know if the weather will take another turn, but thanks Nina and Valentin, saying, it was a lovely evening. They’ll have to do it again. They leave, and Nina says, that was a bust. Valentin doesn’t think so. Jax revealed he has an agenda, and they know he and Hayden were looking for something. They just have to figure out what it was. Nina says, not right now, and they kiss.

Tomorrow, Cassandra makes plans for important guests, Kim wants something from Franco, and Shiloh says it’s what he needed to make his day.

🗽 The new season of Million Dollar Listing New York made its premiere tonight. Those crazy brokers – Fredrik, Ryan, and Steve – are still showing me drool-worthy real estate that makes me want to cry, because I will never, ever be able to afford such fabulousity. Nor have I ever. The best I can say about the apartment I had in Manhattan is, it was in Manhattan, and my apartment in Queens was kind of nice. We found out Ryan and Amelia are expecting a girl, and Ryan had to sell an apartment near the BQE – i.e. near a lot of noise. He tried to distract his potential buyers from that by bringing in his own marching band. Steve has a serious girlfriend – who, since filming, has also revealed a pregnancy – and his property cross to bear was in upstate New York, Hudson Valley. It was quite a property too. He got the listing from a billionaire friend, who bought an agricultural complex built in 1902. Now an historic landmark, the friend had intended on turning it into a hotel, but got too busy with other projects. As the current caretaker said, not in live-in condition. It was in total disrepair, a mess, but oh-so-amazing. Fredrik and Derek’s twins were turning one, and he had a dated apartment to unload. He spent a whole bunch of money into throwing an 80s party there, telling us that he loved the 80s because it was extra, like him. Me too. I love the clothes. It was a costume party, so of course he went all out. and created a totally tubular event. The really sad thing was, his client found a buyer of his own, and per the contract, Fredrik was out a commission. $800,000. I hope the deal falls flat, and the client comes crawling back. It hardly seems fair that Fredrik wouldn’t at least get his expenses back, which certainly had to go into the tens of thousands. I have no clue why he wouldn’t have added that in the contract, but maybe he thought it would never happen. God knows his ego is that big. At the end, Luis crashed a party for the twins. He’s back, and charming as ever. It also looks like there’s going to be a new broker in town next time.

🍊 The other program on Bravo’s menu tonight was a rehashed half-hour called The Real Housewives of Orange County: How They Got Here 2019. No new news there, but their new season begins on Tuesday, August 6th, at 9 pm.

🎧 Been Hearing This Lately…

On a television ad for a phone or something (I don’t really pay attention), and over the end credits of A Simple Favor, which was a direct rip-off of Quentin Tarentino‘s Death Proof end credits. That’s where I first heard it, and I loved it. Tarantino’s soundtracks are always impressive.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Um… That’s what I said when I was hoping for some Shiloh scenes, and instead saw Robert Mueller on my TV.

Here’s what their FB page said: Due to the ongoing hearings on Capitol Hill, today’s episode of #GH will instead air tomorrow. Believe us when we say that it’s worth the wait. Stay tuned.

Here’s what I said: People’s Court, here I come.

Here’s what Soaps in Depth said:

Southern Charm

It’s morning in Colorado. The group trickles downstairs (or up, in Shep’s case) for breakfast. Austen says Madison is already out skiing. Chelsea wears a hat inside because she’s a wimp cold. Craig is making breakfast, and Shep thinks Craig is in the early lead for the MVP of the trip. Craig tells Cameran it’s strange with Austen and Madison. Austen says they have lessons set up for those who don’t ski or snowboard. Eliza says she just knows how to ride a horse. Kathryn comes in wearing some kind of undereye mask things. Craig asks Austen if he and Madison hooked up. That’s a no, but Kathryn asks if he was thinking about it. In his interview, Austen says it’s clear he can’t help himself around Madison. If the opportunity presents itself, he’s jumping at the chance.

Cameron is concerned she’s not on the rest of the group’s level with skiing, and she’s accident prone. In her interview, she says the trip was planned for her to get her mojo back, but she’s a mother now. She drives at the speed limit and doesn’t partake in dangerous activities. God forbid she won’t be there for her child, and she doesn’t want Jason to remarry. She FaceTimes with Palmer. As much as a baby can FaceTime anyway. Shep has to sit things out because of his injury. Whitney says he broke an ankle skiing once. Just one wrong angle and… Cameran doesn’t want to do it now.

Shep wonders why he’s always the first one ready. Even though Madison is already out there, and Austen is sitting there waiting. Craig joins them, bringing along his own snowboard. Shep asks why Eliza takes so long, and she says this is high maintenance, indicating herself. Either accept her or don’t. Kathryn comes in wearing a red ski outfit, with giant furry red earmuffs. Shep asks what planet she’s from, and she says, not this one. I hear that. The bus arrives, and they head out. When they get to the ski resort, Craig says, Kathryn looks like a Teletubby. Austen say he’s getting excited, and Craig says this is his Hallmark dream.

Everyone gets equipped, and those taking lessons go with the instructor. Cameran says she knows how to ski, but she’s sticking with the students. Whitney and Shep decide to get something to eat. Whitney shows Shep how to get oxygen out of something that looks like an airhorn. He tells Shep it helps you get acclimated, but Shep thinks it might be the biggest scam in the world. Clearly, he knows little about scams. They watch Eliza, Danni, Cameran, and Kathryn take a lesson. Madison meets the others, wondering what they’ve been doing. She’s been out since eight. The instructor tells the girls, the number one rule is don’t fall off, as he puts them on a conveyer belt, where they try to balance themselves.

The others take a lift to the hilltop. Shep takes pictures of the lesson. Cameran says she’s too old for this. Chelsea does great, until she falls. Don starts going too fast, and falls, but says, it was amazing. Cameran says they’re all pros now. Don sees a sign that says Happy Hour, and says that’s his next stop. Cameran suggests getting food. Shep, Austen, Madison, and Craig snowboard. Austen asks Madison for a hug, and asks if she missed him. Craig tells them to stop making out, and Austen says he wishes they were.

Danni and Kathryn take the gondola to meet the others. Kathryn freaks a little because she’s going backward. Danni asks what the plans are for dinner, and Kathryn says there’s a chef preparing a marijuana infused dinner at the house. She’s the white elephant [sic] in the room. In her interview, Kathryn says at her lowest point in life, she smoked weed, and her life turned upside down. We see a clip of her saying it was her drug of choice. She says it was the reason she lost her children for a while. She tells Danni, it’s like a big slap in the face – and rude. She also feels awkward about Whitney, and tells Danni that she still has the message in her phone. He asked her to come over, and she said she was with her mom. We read the text of him telling her not to say where she’s going. She tells Danni he wanted to have a quiet night. Danni reads the whole exchange, and says she feels like she watched them have sex. She tells Kathryn that men confuse her sometimes. I don’t know if I believe it, but see below for something I saw on twitter as to a possible reason for Whitney being a jerk. Besides him just being a jerk in general.

Naomie is in the car when Ashley calls. Ashley wonders if she’d be up for grabbing a drink. In Naomie’s interview, she says she’s never gotten a colonoscopy, but sounds better. A bikini wax, a severed arm, her foot run over by a car. She tells Ashley that she’s heading back to her office in Mt. Pleasant. Ashley knows a bar there, and promises to make it quick. Naomie groans. In her interview, she says, everyone deserves a second chance, even if it’s her 27th chance.

The group meets for lunch. Shep says they have a weed dinner tonight, and have more grams than they effing know what to do with. Whitney says they’re like Cheech and Chong. Kathryn and Danni join them, saying the ride was beautiful. Austen says, it’s pretty, but too freakin’ cold. A bell rings in the bar, and they hear a chant, ring that bell. Austen rings it like a maniac, and Shep finds out, when someone rings it, they have to buy a round for the bar. Shep says, Austen is going bankrupt. The total is $250. Austen goofs around with Madison, and Madison tells him, Shep is getting mad. Austen says Shep wants him to be single. Shep says Austen thinks he’s king of the bar. Austen suggests putting it on Shep’s tab. I really get the feeling that Shep is jealous of those he puts down, but I can’t figure out why, or what exactly he’s jealous of.  He’s insecure in some way.

Naomie goes to the bar, and orders an extra-large glass of rosé. She downs it before Ashely comes in. Ashley arrives, and Naomie asks for another. Ashley says, maybe make it a bottle. Naomie says, so..? Ashley says she appreciates Naomie meeting her. Naomie is straight shooter, like herself, and their convictions are strong. It’s obvious Naomie wishes she’d get to the point, and Ashley admits she made it uncomfortable for everyone when they last met. We flash back to her appearance at Eliza’s brunch. Ashley was hoping to get a second chance. She knows it’s wishful thinking, but she doesn’t want to hold a grudge. Naomie says Ashley’s behavior is erratic, and she doesn’t know what she’s going to get; is Ashley going to be nice or call her a bitch? Ashley says, it was just one time, and Naomie asks if it needs to be more. Ashley says she had a lapse in judgement, and besides, she said it in a nice way. Naomie is a bad bitch. In Naomie’s interview, she wonders why she does this to herself. She feels tired. Yep. There are some people who drain me just by hearing their voice. Ashley says she also wants Naomie’s advice on her relationship with Kathryn. Looking back, she’s had no chance to apologize, and wonders how she goes about that. If she runs into Kathryn, should she approach her? Naomie wisely says, no. She doesn’t think so. She doesn’t think Kathryn would be receptive. Ashley wonders, what if she just says, hello, and Naomie says, no. She called Kathryn an egg donor. Ashley says people put things in her head. She owns her actions, and wishes she could go back and fix it, but it’s too late. She’s actually on Kathryn’s side. Naomie asks for more wine. Ashley says she’s done, but doesn’t want to be enemies.

Shep and Austen split a gummy. Shep admits he’s been stoned all day. In Austen’s interview, he says, weed is legal there, and he thinks hiring a skilled chef is a fun thing to do. Get that man a thesaurus. Chef Roilty arrives.  The chef explains there will be four courses. He uses a small amount, and it builds. Shep asks if it will make anyone wild, but Chef Roilty assures him, he knows how to do this.

Craig tells Madison, it’s nice she and Austen are getting along, and asks what’s going on with them. Madison asks what he means, and he says they were being cutesy. Be honest. She says Craig and Shep seem to have something to say about her and Austen’s relationship. They’re a couple of hypocrites, giving advice on a relationship they know nothing about. Craig doesn’t think they should be together, and Madison says, if Austen isn’t asking his opinion, don’t give it. That’s all she asks.

Chelsea says, it smells delicious. The chef explains that he has infused olive oil and infused butter for the meal. Chelsea asks why Austen’s eyes look jacked up. The chef brings out some CBD wine. Chelsea asks if Austen is stoned, and he says he just took a gummy. She can’t believe he did that just before the dinner. Cameran comes in and says, it smells like ganja. She doesn’t want any weed in her food, but takes a sip of the wine. She tells Austen that his eyes are barely open. Chelsea offers Whitney some of the CBD wine, and he asks what that means. I find it hard to believe he’s never heard of it. I’m sure he goes on the internet.

Next door, Kathryn teases her hair. Madison shows up next, dressed in black. Shep says she looks like a femme fatale, and looks extra special tonight. She asks why he’s being nice to her, and he says he’s nice all the time. She asks for a gummy, and they go into the other room. He tells her not to have a whole one, since she’s probably only half his weight, but she says. let her be the judge, and pops one in her mouth. He says he’s starting to think she’s cool, but she should admit she’s toying with Austen’s emotions. She says Shep called her white trash, and she’s not tolerating that kind of behavior from him. He’s making a comment without even knowing her. Shep says it kept coming up, and he’s going to take his friend’s side. She says she thinks he’s a bad influence, and he says, free will’s a MF-er. She asks why he’s getting involved, and he says Austen doesn’t behave like his normal, fun-loving self, and he thinks she brings out the downer in him. She says it’s probably because Shep is breathing down his neck. He says she doesn’t like them hanging out, but she says she’s not controlling; she doesn’t care. In the living room, Austen wonders what tale Shep is weaving. Madison tells Shep she’s not saying she and Austen are going to live happily ever after, or that they’ll even be together, but they do feel some kind of way. Shep says they’re both attracted, but that seems to be the only thing they have in common. He then admits, maybe he’s wrong. She says, 100%, and he says he was angry, and said things he shouldn’t have. It was rude, and he apologizes. Does she accept? She says she’ll think about it. Madison comes back past the kitchen. She says, it smells weird. She sees the chef, and says, sorry. She’s sure he’s doing a great job.

Madison tells Austen that Shep apologized, but she doesn’t care enough to really focus on it. He tells her not to concern herself with it. Chef Roilty says, dinner is ready. He’s decorated the table with leaves he brought from home. He tells them nothing is infused unless they want it to be. He puts the salad dressing and melted butter for the pasta on the table. Eliza thinks they should say a blessing. Cameran is like, not over weed, and Shep thanks God for this leaf. Eliza says they’ll go to church when they get back. Craig asks about the strength, and the chef says it’s five to ten milligrams per serving. Nothing crazy. Craig asks what it tastes like, and Shep says, it tastes like victory. Cameran sniffs the butter. Shep says, drink it, but she says she’d be toasted, and call 911. He tells her, just go to bed if that happens, and she says, ya’ll are peer pressure. Shep and Austen laugh over nothing. In Cameran’s interview, she says it’s entertaining to watching her friends get high on the wacky weed, but she’s realizing there’s no getting her mojo back. Her mojo is retired.

Kathryn wants to let Austen know that it’s okay for her to be around this. It’s not awkward. He doesn’t get what she’s saying, so she says, it would have been nice if he’d asked if she was cool. He says he just assumed, and she says she’s not worried about wanting to do it, but she went to rehab for it. She couldn’t see the kids because of it. He says he’s sorry, but she says, don’t be sorry. She’s just glad it’s not an awkward situation. In Austen’s interview, he says he should have thought about it. He definitely doesn’t want her to feel isolated. Don wonders who will take care of Austen and Shep later on when they can’t speak English. Kathryn says, not her. Shep swallows a spoonful of the butter, and pretends to be all weird. Kathryn shows Craig and Danni something on her phone, and says Whitney said she was a drug addict sociopath. We see a 2016 clip from Watch What Happens Live with Whitney, Landon, and Cameran as guests. Whitney says Kathryn seems like this poor single mother, but she’s a drug addict, violent sociopath. Kathryn say she was just recalling when she had trouble; reminding herself. She says she has to go to the bathroom. It gets quiet as she leaves. Outside, she says she can’t do this.

Madison says these are Austen’s friends. Austen says they have fun together, and Madison says she sees why he doesn’t go home. Craig goes looking for Kathryn. He finds her in the other house, and asks if she’s all right. She says she just needed a minute. She thought she’d be cooler about it, but it’s bringing up memories of a traumatic time in her life. She says she doesn’t want to make a big deal, but Austen never said anything. In her interview, Kathryn says he planned it ahead of time, but never thought it might bother her in any way. It just shows where their focus is – on themselves. Kathryn just wanted him to ask if she’d be cool with it. Back at the table, Chelsea wonders where Kathryn and Craig are.  Kathryn says they talked so much sh*t about her. Whitney has given her a million eff yous. He looked her in the eye, and said they didn’t have sex, but he’s flattered. She gets that he doesn’t want his personal sh*t out there, but it’s already out there. She tells Craig that she’s just processing so she can get over it. I’m so with her on this. They’ve been flaunting legal weed in her face since they got there. Not on purpose, but they’re being thoughtless. It’s not like she just stop smoking either. That was a big deal.

Danni films Shep eating infused potatoes. He demands more weed butter. Craig comes back, and Austen asks if Kathryn is okay. Craig says, she’s not, because of him and Shep. She’s taking a breather because she got a blast from the past. Shep and Chelsea can’t stop laughing. Craig says Austen didn’t ask Kathryn about the weed dinner before throwing it in front of her. Cameran says, didn’t Austen ask her? and he says, no. Austen thanks Craig for saying something, and he says it’s not as much about him as Whitney. Cameran asks, what’s wrong? and Whitney is oblivious, and says goodnight. Craig asks if Whitney isn’t going to make sure Kathryn is okay. Whitney wonders what’s going on, and Craig says he denied hooking up with her, and made her feel like sh*t. He made her cry. They know he and Kathryn had sex. Shep asks how Craig knows. Did he smell Whitney’s junk? Craig says, the person he claims is his friend is upset, and he could care less. Shep says, couldn’t, and Craig corrects it to, couldn’t care less. He says, years ago, Whitney said she shouldn’t have her kids because of what she’s doing, and now they’re celebrating it. What would it cost him to make sure she’s okay? Whitney says Craig is a busybody, and should focus on himself. Craig says he should talk to her. In Craig’s interview, he says if someone denied having sex with him, it would hurt his feelings. He’d be like, he wasn’t that bad. Kathryn doesn’t fit on Whitney’s level of society, and it’s a dirty little secret for him.

Whitney goes to the other house, and looks for Kathryn. He doesn’t see her anywhere, but finds her outside on the porch swing in the dark. He asks if everything is all right. Someone said she was upset with him. She say she doesn’t want talk about it. Please let her be. He leaves.

Next time, the group goes swimming, Shep says he has nothing to hide, Austen doesn’t want to lsoe Madison, Danni wonders what’s wrong with Shep and Austen, and Shep wants ot know why Austen lets Madison walk on him.

🐦 Patricia Agreed...

Reality TV Bliss tweeted: @RealityTVBliss Replying to @ellenburnham and @Pataltschul  Are you keeping up with the custody hearing? Thomas is trying to have cast members deposed and production.  Some already have to go in. He’s alleging she’s a sex addict so YES he would be next on his hit list of witnesses #SouthernCharm

In other words, Whitney is pretending nothing happened so his ass doesn’t get dragged into court. Apparently, in a desperate move, Thomas is saying Kathryn shouldn’t have the kids because she’s a sex addict. I think at this point, the court will probably laugh at him. He’s done. Regardless, Whitney is still being a wuss.

Camille worked hard for the money.

Sadly, it hasn’t been LVP’s year.

She still soldiers on though. Project Angel Food is the best. When we were more broke than we are now, some friends got together and had food sent to us through them. The name fits. It was heavenly.

Like the Reunion itself isn’t enough, there’s the rehash afterward.

Reality TV isn’t a job for the faint of heart. It’s too bad. I have to admit, although I wanted to like Billie, she was becoming more and more like just one more drama queen. We already have Scheana for that.

July 16, 2019 – Nina Asks Curtis To Triple-Cross Jax, Beverly Hills Begins Reuniting, Other Way Capsule & Gone

Standard

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Lulu asks Maxie why Dante shot Peter. Maxie thinks it could have been anyone; he just fired. She tells Lulu, Dante is in trouble. It’s really bad.

Finn asks Peter how he’s feeling. Peter says, about the same. The pain is manageable, and he’s just glad he doesn’t need surgery. Finn says he should be glad he’s alive. He can’t be reckless like that. Peter says, it was an accident, and Finn tells him, try to avoid future accidents, especially ones involving bullets. He’ll tell Anna that Peter will make a full recovery. Peter says he’s not telling Anna anything.

On the phone, Robert says he got a call from the Bureau; something is going on with Peter. He asks if they can meet him at Charlie’s. Julian asks to what does he owe this headache? It’s been a minute. Robert says, not long enough. Kim watches through the window from outside. She takes Oscar’s teddy bear out of her bag, and flashes back to drugging Drew. She walks away.

Curtis asks if Drew has a minute. He has a couple of delicate issues to discuss. He knows the will reading was today, and says he’s sure that was tough. Drew says, it wasn’t fun, but he’d rather not get into it now. Curtis says, no problem, and Drew asks, what else? Curtis wonders who drugged him, and asks if he knew Hayden was on The Haunted Star?

Nina tells Jax that she has good news; excellent news. Ad sales are up in anticipation of their Ava issue. He says with luck readership will increase, and she says, luck has nothing to do with it. She gives the readers what they want. She tells him she’s wrapping it up for the day, and he asks if she’s got a hot date with Valentin. She wonders why he wants her to share information about Valentin, and he says he thought he knew the family. Then Valentin falls out of sky, and inherits everything. He’s curious how Valentin managed it. She says he already knows everything there is to know about her fiancé, doesn’t he?

Ava goes out on the hospital rooftop, and sees tables with candles set up. She calls out for Sibley, who comes up behind Ava, startling her. Sibley asks if she’s ready to contact her daughter. Ava asks why Sibley snuck up on her. Does she want to give Ava a heart attack? Sibley says she got distracted by the view. It’s beautiful, clear, and perfect for channeling. Ava asks if the candles are meant to draw Kiki, but Sibley says the candles will keep them from bumping into each other. She knows Ava paid the guard to let them up there, but if the lights went on, it might draw unwanted attention. Ava asks, what now? Do they just start? Sibley says, after she receives payment. Ava hands over the money, and Sibley says, so let’s contact Kiki.

Lulu tells Maxie that she knew Dante was in trouble, but she had no idea it was this bad. Maxie says she’s sorry, and Lulu asks what she was doing there. Maxie says she called in a favor from her dad, and Lulu asks, why? Maxie says she wanted to tell Dante how much his family needed him. Lulu says Dante is in there for treatment. What the hell was she thinking?

Finn tells Peter that he has to let Anna know. Peter says they both know she’ll drop whatever she’s doing, and race back. Finn says, probably, and Peter says they’re still trying to figure out who they are to each other. They don’t need a mother and son reunion based on a crisis that didn’t happen. Finn doubts Anna would see it that way, and Peter tells Finn, call it what he wants, but he’s not telling her, and as his physician, Finn isn’t either.

Robert asks if Julian is tending bar, but Julian says he owns the joint. Robert says he heard a rumor that Julian was going legit, and Julian says, it’s not a rumor; it’s the truth. Robert remembers putting Julian in the Witness Protection Program, and it wasn’t long before he went back to organized crime. Julian asks if there’s a point to this, and Robert says he knows what Julian is; a killer who could revert to form. Julian says he doesn’t think so. Now he has somebody to be on the straight and narrow for. He tells Robert the first round is on him. He steps away, and Robert orders a bottle of their most expensive scotch.

Kim comes in, and Julian asks how the reading was. She says, hard, and he asks if she wants to talk. She says, maybe later, but first, she needs to tell him that she’s so sorry.

Drew tells Curtis that he doesn’t want talk about it. Curtis says Drew was drugged. Why is he more pissed about it than Drew. Drew says nothing happened. The person responsible realized they were wrong. Let it go. Curtis tells him if he says so. Drew says as head of Aurora security, does Curtis have anything business related to tell him about? Curtis says he wants to warn him. Jax… Hayden walks in, saying they need to talk about firewall protection. Drew is like, what?! When did she get back? More important, why is she in his office? She says she was looking for Curtis. Drew says he runs security there, and asks what her concern is. She says she’s the new CFO of the Aurora print division. Jax hired her. He asks Curtis to give him a minute, and Curtis says he’ll be outside. Hayden tells Drew, let’s get it over with. She works for Jax, and has nothing to do with him. He says ulterior motives are her forte, and asks what she wants now.

Curtis finds Jax, and tells him that his new CFO announced herself to Drew. He might want to do damage control. Jax tells Nina that they’ll talk later.

Finn says Peter was wounded in a WSB facility. Anna is going to find out. Peter says he’ll be recovered by that time. Finn says, that’s not the point. Keeping secrets is a mistake. Peter says, it’s his to make, and Finn is ethically bound to honor it. He can’t disclose any information, even to his fiancé. Finn starts to leave, and says, as fast as Peter and Anna knock down the wall between them, he keeps building it back up. He’s his own worst enemy.

Maxie tells Lulu that she should have thought the plan through, but Lulu says, there never should have been a plan. She shouldn’t have interfered in Dante’s progress. Now it’s obliterated, and he’s back to where he started. Finn comes out, and tells them Peter is up for visitors, and asks them to limit it to one at a time. Maxie tells Lulu to go. Finn asks if Maxie is okay, and she says she’s doing the best she can. He says it’s all any of them can do.

Ava asks Sibley how this works exactly. Sibley says Ava told her the building was important to Kiki. Ava says GH was like her second home. She was in medical school, and worked there part time. They see her memorial plaque from the ledge. Sibley asks if Ava brought something, and Ava gives her a necklace. She says she gave it to Kiki for her high school graduation. She wore it most of the time, even when she was furious with Ava. Sibley explains the difference between channeling and being a medium is. As a medium, she relays the messages around her. Like playing telephone, but the voices are louder. When she’s channeling, she has to open herself to another plane. When Ava speaks to her, she’ll be speaking directly to Kiki, and she might not like everything she hears. Ava says, Kiki wasn’t one to hold back. Sibley says she’ll be speaking directly to her daughter, providing Kiki avails herself of the opportunity. Shall they begin? She takes Ava’s hands, and says she needs total silence and the utmost concentration. She tells Ava to close her eyes, and open her mind. Think of the strongest memory of the relationship. Sibley asks if Kiki is there. She makes some weird movements, and Ava asks if it worked. Sibley breathes hard, and looks at Ava. Ava says, Sibley? and Sibley says, no, mother; it’s me. Ava says, Kiki?

Kim tells Julian that she had a session with Dr. Massey. He asks how it went, and she says it was difficult but she thinks she got some clarity. She told the doctor about what happened with Drew. She couldn’t believe what she was saying. It sounded crazy, like she was talking about someone else. Julian says, it’s her grief, that’s all. She says she was convinced having a child with Drew could fill the void left when Oscar died. She forgot the good things she still had in her life. Dr. Massey had her write them down, and the first thing she wrote was her relationship with him.

Hayden tells Drew that he has every reason not to trust her. He says at least they agree on that. She says her motives shouldn’t impact him or Aurora. They have the same logo on their stationery, but they never need to cross paths. He says he’d planned on building a legacy for his son, and now that Oscar is gone, he’s building it for his daughter. Hayden says, it sounds like Oscar was a great kid. She’s sorry for his loss. Jax comes to the door, and says he sees they’re getting reacquainted.

Nina tells Curtis that Drew must be surprised. Hayden exploited his amnesia, and planned on being his ex-wife. He’s sorry he didn’t tell her. Nina says that’s kind of his thing now. He says, what thing? and she says Jax hiring Hayden isn’t the only secret he’s keeping from his closest friends.

Finn meets Robert at Charlie’s. He tells Robert that Peter is expected to make a full recover. Robert says, Anna will be relieved, but Finn says, she doesn’t know. Peter insisted on keeping it to himself. Is Robert listening to him?

Lulu tells Peter that she’s relieved he’s okay. He says she can talk about Dante if she wants. She says she’s in shock. She still thought he was getting better, when he’s gotten worse. It’s disturbing. He’s sorry she had to learn this way, and she says he’s last person who needs to apologize. She knows it wasn’t his idea. He says, for what it’s worth, Maxie did believe she could bring Dante home to her. Maxie comes in, and Lulu says she needs time with Peter. Got it. She breezes past Maxie. Peter takes Maxie’s hand, and he says, it’s okay. Lulu is just upset. It’s not her fault. She says, yeah; it is.

Laura sees Lulu, and says, it’s okay. Lulu runs to her, and says, it’s not okay.

Ava asks if it’s Kiki, and Sibley/Kiki says, yes, mother; it’s her. Ava wants to believe her, but wonders how she can be sure it’s not some kind of scam. Indicating the necklace, Sibley/Kiki says she wore this a lot, but not the night she was killed. She took it off, and never wore it again after Ava drugged Sasha, and set up Sasha and Griff like they slept together. Ava says, everybody knew that, and Sibley/Kiki says, Ava came to Kelly’s, and she tried to slap Ava, but Ava caught her hand. She’d slapped Ava weeks before, and Ava had said she only gets one. Ava says she has so many questions. There’s so much she needs to say. Most important is, she’s sorry. Sibley/Kiki says she never wants contact again. She never wants to talk to Ava again. I’m wondering why Sibley claimed earlier that Kiki wished she had shown up at the dinner. Kind of contradictory.

Kim tells Julian that she was convinced a baby like Oscar could heal her, and lessen the pain. She didn’t stop to consider the pain she’d be putting him through. For him to walk in on her with Drew… Julian says she doesn’t need to rehash it, but she says she wants to face it, and figure out what’s left. Julian has been her rock, and she’s scared that, after what happened, things have changed forever. Julian says she has a right to feel that way. They have.

Finn tells Robert that he reluctantly has to honor Peter’s wishes. Under HIPPA laws, he can’t tell Anna the details about her son. Robert says he’s all for following the law, but when Anna finds out, she’ll go ballistic. Finn says his hands are tied, but Robert says, his aren’t.

Maxie says Peter could have died. He says, he didn’t. She says she should be thrilled; dancing for joy. He says he’d like to see that, and she tells him, don’t flirt. She’s too upset to appreciate it. She meddled when everyone told her not to. Now Dante is worse off, and the WSB will ship him God knows where. Even if they don’t, he’s not safe to be around Lulu and the kids. He says she cares, and Maxie says she wishes she could turn it off. He says it’s one reason he’s crazy about her, but she doesn’t think Lulu would agree.

Laura tells Lulu that she’s sorry. She had no idea it was that severe. Lulu says, the doctors knew. That’s why they were treating him. Maxie barged in, and ruined everything. Laura says she doesn’t really believe that, does she? and Lulu says, no. Laura says Maxie was misguided, but there’s a silver lining. Lulu finally has the answers to the questions that have been haunting her for months.

Ava says they have so much they need to say to each other, but Sibley/Kiki says, not really. Ava always found new and creative ways hurt her. She’s finally at peace, and does Ava know why? Because Kiki is no longer with her. Ava says she doesn’t mean that. Ryan said Kiki forgave her. Sibley/Kiki asks if Ava’s that desperate for absolution, that she’ll take the word of the man who murdered her. She can’t believe his lies, and take no responsibility for her actions. Ava says they can’t undo what’s done, but can they can move past the pain they caused each other. Kiki inflicted her share of pain too. Sibley/Kiki says Ava will never change. They’re done. Ava says, no, they’re not, but Sibley/Kiki says, yes, they are. Goodbye. Ava says, please wait, but Sibley says, sorry. Kiki is gone. She doesn’t want to talk to Ava anymore. Sibley warned her that she might not like what Kiki had to say. Ava asks if Sibley thinks she can scare her. All of a sudden, Kiki doesn’t want to talk, until she’s charged for a few more sessions. Sibley says, wait; she’s back. Ava laughs, but Sibley says, no. She has a message. Kiki wants to send a message to her sister. She wants Avery to know that she loves and misses her. No matter how she feels about Ava.

Ava asks if there’s anything else. The knife is already lodged in Ava’s heart; she might as well give twist. Sibley says she can’t control what the dead tell her. She and Kiki never met, but obviously she’s still hurting. Ava says it’s probably the most truthful thing Sibley has said all evening. Sibley says, maybe Kiki doesn’t want to talk now, but will eventually. If she rebuffs Ava again, Sibley won’t charge anything. Ava wants Kiki to know she’s changed. Maybe the article in Crimson will do the trick. Sibley says she’s going to clean up now. Ava says, while Sibley is there, there’s somebody else she’d like to contact. There’s someone else she needs to make amends with. She doesn’t have a personal item, but this place was important to him too. His name is Nikolas Cassadine.

Laura says Lulu has been in a holding pattern a long time, wondering if and when Dante would come back. Lulu says now the time is further off. Laura tells her that Dante did say not to wait for him. He must have realized it would be a long time, if ever, before he could come back to her and the kids. Lulu says she was holding out hope that he’d walk in the front door, and everything would go back to normal. Now she knows normal is never going to happen. Laura says at least now she knows she doesn’t have to be in limbo. She can make plans. Lulu says she sounds like Maxie. Laura says, Maxie wanted to help. She botched the landing, but meant well. How does Lulu think she knew to show up? Lulu says Maxie called her. Laura says Maxie knew Lulu needed her. She’s good like that. Maxie sees them.

Robert tells Finn there’s no law preventing him saying he received word on Peter’s condition. Finn says, if Anna shows up, it could backfire, and wreck any progress she and Peter have made in their relationship. God knows Robert doesn’t like Peter, but he doesn’t want to hurt Anna. Robert says he hates it when Finn is right, but it’s the perfect opportunity to bring her home. Isn’t it what Finn wants? Finn says he wants her home more than ever, and Robert says, of course (🍷). His ex is in town.

Drew says he’s not telling Jax how to run his half of the business, but he and Hayden have a complicated history. He thought it was in the past. Hayden says, far in the past. Drew asks if Jax is aware that Hayden was fired from GH for embezzlement. Jax says he is, and Drew asks why he hired her.

Nina says Valentin told her that he hire Curtis sot spy on Jax, and it was his idea Curtis take the position at Aurora. Curtis says he needs the extra money. The medical bills are piling up. Nina says he has options, and he appreciates her offering to pay, but he has to do it on his own. Besides, it’s a temporary gig. Jax is a shark, and he’s bound to find out eventually, but it would help a lot if Nina didn’t tell him herself. She says she has no intention of telling him what Curtis is up to. She has another job in mind for him.

Kim says she understands if Julian wants to break up. He says he doesn’t want to, but she says he told her things changed. He says they can’t go on pretending things are the same. She lost the most important person to her. His feelings haven’t changed. She says, even after Drew? and he says she messed up, but she owned up to it, and she’s trying to do better. He’s messed up plenty. A lot of people are eager to remind him, but he’s not the cut and run type. He stays and fights. She says she won’t run either.

Maxie asks if it’s safe to approach. Lulu says, yeah, and Laura says she’ll let them talk. Maxie sits next to Lulu, and says Lulu was right. She shouldn’t have gone. Lulu says she shouldn’t have snapped. Maxie is just looking out for her, like always. She was just upset that Maxie did what she wished she could have done. She found Dante, and got the answers Lulu needed, even if they’re not the ones she wanted. Maxie says she’s not mad? Lulu says, no, and Maxie says, thank God. She despises fighting with Lulu. Lulu says she’ll need Maxie more than ever to get through the next phase of her life. They hug, and say they love each other.

Finn asks how Robert knows about Hayden, and Robert asks if Finn doesn’t think he does his research. When Finn and Anna started playing house, he had a dossier put together. Finn says, of course (🍷). Robert says, Hayden’s name leapt off the page. He knew she’d resurfaced and was involved with Jax apparently. Finn says apparently Robert thinks she has another agenda. Robert asks, does he? Finn says, with Hayden, anything is possible.

Jax tells Drew that he’s a big believer in second chances. Hayden says she is too. Jax says they all should be. She won’t be doing any finances on Drew’s end; no data, nothing. Drew says, understood, but he’d appreciate it if Jax doesn’t drive Aurora into bankruptcy. Jax says, duly noted. As Jax leaves, Drew tells him to watch his back and his wallet. Hayden walks out with him.

Curtis tells Nina that he’s confused. Nina wants him to pass along the same information about Jax to her that he’s giving to Valentin? She says, but she wants it first. He’ll be triple-crossing Jax. It’s simple. Valentin is leaving her out of the loop, and she needs to be in it. Are they clear? Curtis says, what could go wrong?

Hayden thanks Jax for standing up for her. He wants to be clear. If he’d only hired her as CFO, she’d be out on the street. She says, but she’s not. Why is she there? He says they’re going to keep poking and prodding, and Valentin and his house of cards are going to come tumbling down. Then, they’ll both get what they want.

Ava asks Sibley if there’s anything, but Sibley says, sorry. There could be many explanations, but she can’t feel any presence from the other side. I’m guessing we’ll see a new Nikolas soon.

Tomorrow, Diane has good news, Carly ask if there’s a problem with Dev and Josslyn, and Sonny tells Ava do it again and see what happens.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – The Reunion – Part One

Andy FaceTimes with Anderson Cooper, saying, there’s trouble in Beverly Hills. He tells Anderson that LVP isn’t there, but Camille is. They’re breaking a lot of news today.

There’s the usual schmoozing before air time. Andy welcomes us. Denise is excited for her first reunion, and Kyle says, that’s such a newbie thing to say. He tells Teddi what a difference a year makes. She says her dad told her not to have her boobs hanging out, and Mellencamps don’t cry. Andy says, obviously someone is missing. LVP said she’s skipping the reunion and not returning to the show. He says it brings to mind season three, where Adrienne Maloof didn’t show. We flash back to LVP at the same reunion, saying she thinks that’s a mistake. She should have come and cleared up her mess. Andy says LVP’s final act as a cast member was telling a reporter she’s not showing up. Kyle thinks she gave the interview yesterday, knowing if she didn’t show up, she’d be fired. She asks if Andy thinks she wanted to show up when she and Kim were on the outs. He says LVP had said the objective of a reunion is to reunite, and she had no inclination to reunite with the women who have been harassing her for ten months. Kyle says LVP hasn’t seen them since Denise’s wedding. LisaR says LVP pinched her butt, and they were laughing. We flash back to that.

Andy says a source close to LVP said, she was burned at the stake, nailed to the cross, and stoned by her co-stars. Erika says, get of the cross; we need the wood. I’m not impressed, since she stole that line from Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Andy tells them a source said LVP always wins. Kyle thinks it’s a mistake for her not to be there. They could have worked it out, even if it meant agreeing to disagree. Dorit says she doesn’t think LVP is capable of that. Andy says she drew a line in the sand, and said she wasn’t caving on the issue. Teddi feels like there’s a chance she’ll show up for dramatics. LisaR says she keeps looking at the door. Andy says he knows Kyle is holding out hope. She’s had LVP’s birthday present since September. Andy says, if she doesn’t come, he’s opening it. Denise asks Kyle why she thinks LVP didn’t show up. Kyle thinks she doesn’t want to face them because she’s been unmasked. She was called out on what happened at Vanderpump Dogs. Why do that to someone you care about? She’s been focusing on the Radar article, so she doesn’t have to talk about what actually happened. Erika says she’s expecting a stunt, and will be fully disappointed if it doesn’t happen. A limo pulls up, trying to make us think LVP decided to show, and Camille gets out, along with friend Kimber.

Andy tells us that LisaR and Harry got in a heated Twitter battle with Nicolette Sheridan about Michael Bolton. LisaR had said Nicolette went off with Michael after a concert. LisaR says Harry was in another city, felt strange, and had to go home. When he got back, he found a love note in the trash. Nicolette had slept with Michael Bolton that night, and without Michael, she wouldn’t be with Harry. Nicolette said it was fake news. LisaR reminds us that Denise’s husband was married to Nicolette. Andy says she’s making a compelling case for Nicolette to be on the show.

Andy says, Denise swears like a trooper, and drinks tequila like the world is not enough, thinking he’s being funny by referring to a couple of her movies. We see clips of her throughout he season. My favorite is when she talks about the women dressing up all the time in an interview, and says they’re lucky she put an effing bra on. Andy is amazed how chill she is, and asks what Charlie’s reaction to the show is. She says he was supportive when she told him that she was doing it, but he hasn’t been super happy about some of the things she’s said. Like the time she talked about having one of his ladies of the night to Thanksgiving. Denise says, she was lovely, and we flash back to that story, and Denise saying, even a hooker deserves have Thanksgiving dinner. She told Charlie she didn’t think his past was a secret, and he’d said he was in a different place now. She told him people love him because he’s honest, and his ladies were a big part of his past.

Andy asks Erika about Denise’s laid back sense of style, and Erika says, everyone should be themselves. Denise says she dresses up, but day-to-day, she’s a jeans, tank top, and T-shirt person. She considered the shorts she wore in the Bahamas fancy. A viewer says she’s been through a lot, but never seems like a victim. How is she so good at hanging with crazy? Denise says Charlie is her daughters dad, and they’ve been divorced for fourteen years. She didn’t want her daughters privy to the negative in his life. When he was diagnosed with HIV, they didn’t know. She moved into his neighborhood, and he knew he could call her any time, and she’d be there. A lot of people judged her for that, but she wanted him to be the best dad he could be because she has an amazing relationship with her father. She’s no saint, and she’s made mistakes, but she thinks it’s best not to talk negatively about her children’s father. Ultimately, they’re the ones who suffer. Andy asks LisaR about Denise, since they’ve been friends since the earth cooled. LisaR says Denise is a saint, and she has a lot of respect for her, dealing with a difficult time being so public. Denise says, it was just a snippet of what was really going on. Andy says it struck him that Denise could have taken Charlie to the cleaners. She says they had no prenup, and he got Two and a Half Men while they were married. Andy says she could have asked for a piece, since he had ownership. Denise adds, he made a lot of money. Andy asks how Aaron gets along with Charlie, and Denise says, they do get along. Out of respect, Aaron called Charlie to let him know when they were getting married.

Andy asks about Eloise, and Denise says she has a chromosome disorder that caused delays in speech and development. Erika asks how old Eloise was when they found out, and Denise says it was about two years ago; she’s eight now. She says it’s difficult to diagnose, and it was hard to see it in black and white when she saw the medical report. She tears up, saying, a two-year-old can talk, but Eloise can’t, even though she wants to. She’s a free spirit and happy. She doesn’t know. Andy asks what Eloise has taught her, and Denise says, you can communicate without verbally speaking. Eloise is a bright light. When she hears music, she dances, and doesn’t care who’s watching. Denise has to keep an eye on her 24/7 though. She’s taken swim lessons since she was a toddler, but wouldn’t be able to save herself. Dorit says, it’s hard to hear, since Jagger was a delayed speaker. He’s five now, and did reach milestones. She understands. As a mother, your biggest job is to protect and take care of your kids. Denise says, kids are mean, and it starts young. Dorit says Denise is a great mom.

Andy says, chaos and anxiety follow Kyle wherever she goes. We see clips of her life, and her saying she always feels her life is like whack-a-mole, which I totally understand. She has an anxiety disorder, and automatically imagines the worst. Sarah from Colorado asks if LisaR regrets taking Kyle along on her mammogram, since she suffered so much anxiety, but LisaR says, no. She thinks everyone should have one. She says she got positive feedback, but then people were saying Kyle’s appointment was possibly set up for the show. Kyle says she gets one every October, and was scheduled for the following week. Since both of them were expected, the doctor put time aside for Kyle, so she figured she might as well do it, since they give the results on the spot. A viewer asks if Dorit’s gigantic breast implants affect her mammograms. Dorit asks if they’ve seen gigantic. I agree. They’re always falling out, but I wouldn’t say they’re gigantic. Andy says LisaR said it was like a check-up for her implants. LisaR says she also gets an ultrasound. We see a clip of the doctor saying there’s no sign of a leak or rupture. LisaR says she wondered if it was okay to show it, but it’s the absolute truth. You need to be more careful when you have implants.

Andy asks Teddi how she helped Kyle when she was spiraling. Teddi says they actually went to her therapist together, and we see a clip of them. It’s not like talk therapy though. More like some kind of relaxation therapy. Kyle says her anxiety got so bad, Mauricio almost had to call 911.

Andy reminds us that Erika had toasted, all hail the true queen, Kyle. Erika says look at them today. Kyle is the queen. She says look who showed up. Dorit says Kyle is one of the originals, and the leader of the group. Erika says Kyle binds them, and Kyle thanks them. I watch her head get bigger.

In the hallway, Camille tells Kimber, it’s like walking into the lion’s den with these women. Everyone greets her all fake happy. Andy says an original Housewife is back. Camille doesn’t know if she should be happy or terrified. Andy congratulates her on the wedding, and we flash back to that. Andy says he wants what Mauricio had at dinner in Hawaii. So does everyone else, me included. We flash back to Mauricio wanting to tell a joke, and then forgetting it. Andy says the crew was laughing so hard, they had a problem with the audio. A viewer asks what the best part of Camille’s honeymoon in Switzerland was. She says, everything. She loves skiing, and they did a lot of that. We see photos of Camille’s temporary home, and Andy points out that the house is 1200 square feet. Camille says they’re still in it. It’s got great views, and it’s comfortable. Andy reminds Camille about how she griped about 3500 square feet in NYC. Camille says she thought it would be uncomfortable with two small kids. How times have changed. She went from a grand estate to 3500 square feet. We see clips of that. Andy says he was talking to Denise about raising kids with an ex. Camille says her mother watched Denise’s interviews, and said, that’s the classy way to do it; make it about the kids. Andy asks why she kept the name Grammer, and Camille says, for her kids. Denise says she couldn’t wait to get rid of her married name. Camille says she took the name off of her social media, but it’s still on her passport. Andy asks how David feels about that, and she says, he has no problem; he understands. Andy brings up her reaction to Denise not having a prenup. Camille says she was married for thirteen years. Denise says she was married just under five. I’ll bet it felt like a lot longer though. People think she should have asked for half. He was almost bankrupt before they married. Camille says she felt like she worked hard. She wasn’t sitting around eating bonbons. Dorit asks if Denise likes bonbons, but she says she’s never had one.

10 minutes later. While getting her makeup retouched, Camille says she didn’t expect that. In another room, Denise says wait until they get into Camille’s stuff. She’s already being mean. Camille can’t figure out why Denise is bothered by the money thing. The makeup artist tells Denise, maybe Camille isn’t happy, and Denise is getting laid. Teddi says she has hers scheduled for after this.

Andy tells us just because the women are proper in the streets, doesn’t mean they’re prudes in the sheets. He loves that rhyming stuff. We flash back to all the sex talk this season. Andy tells Denise that viewer Zoe has a question. Denise bets she does. He asks why it was okay for Aaron to get the happy ending, when Denise could do it herself. Denise says she does do that, but he’d never had one, and it was a wild night. Andy said he inferred that she was an old lady. Denise says he was mortified and embarrassed. Andy asks Erika how Tom felt when she said he probably paid for sex as a young man. She says he used to go to Vegas, win money, and the hotel would send up back scratchers. A viewer asks Denise how big is it? and Denise says she only said something once. We go back and count, and it’s like, four. Kyle says compare it to her shoe, and Denise says it’s bigger than that. Andy wants clarification. Denise says he was embarrassed at first, but now he’s glad. Denise asks where Andy falls, and he says nowhere near Aaron. Erika says Denise is the MVP of the group. They discuss her posting a pic online of him at full-mast under the sheets. She says she took it down because the kids saw something. Andy asks how LisaR and Harry keep it spicy after 22 years. She says they like to do some kinky sh*t. #WhatDidHarryDo She says she took a strip class, but all you have to do is bend over. Good to know. Sounds like a lot less work.

We revisit the battle between Teddi and LVP. Like we haven’t seen enough of that. Andy says, from Teddi’s point of view, what happened off camera before the season started? She wants to apologize again first. She should have never gotten involved. Dorit asks why she did. She says she was told that since she wasn’t getting along with Dorit, and LVP was friends with her, it was less weird for her to bring it up, and to figure out a way to make it happen. She was told the dog was in a kill shelter from John Blizzard. She says there was so much going into it; three and four way calls. Denise asks, why get involved? and Teddi says she made a mistake. She was angry at Dorit last year for what happened when they were leaving the reunion. Dorit refused to go to lunch if Teddi was there, and Teddi acted out. Andy doesn’t understand why Teddi didn’t talk to LVP directly. Why was she speaking to the employees? Teddi says she was going there because her kids go to a class nearby. She didn’t hang out with John. Andy says that makes it all the more weird. Teddi says she didn’t think twice, because John said he was talking to LVP. Dorit says it looks bad that she went along; she’s not dismissing Teddi’s bad behavior. Andy reminds them that Erika said Teddi wasn’t to be trusted last season, and we flash back to the previous reunion. Erika says she didn’t realize how much Teddi disliked Dorit.

Andy says for someone who’s the queen of accountability, it’s amzing that Teddi had such a lapse. This is definite shade, and I’m wondering if Andy isn’t just a little pissed that he lost LVP from the Housewives franchise. Dorit says she wondered why, if Teddi didn’t want to go through with it, she didn’t stop it when she was at Vanderpump Dogs. Instead she made Dorit the scapegoat. She thinks it wasn’t that Teddi didn’t want to do it to Dorit, but she didn’t want to be the only one to do it. That hurt.

Next time – Part Two – Andy stirs the pot by asking why the women think Erika doesn’t want to be around them, Camille says they want her to jump on the hate bandwagon. Denise suggests Camille think before she speaks, and Camille walks off.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Dev and Sonny walk into Sonny’s office at Pozzulo’s. Dev tells Sonny, Bensonhurst, New York City, and Sonny tells him, just say Brooklyn. He says Dev is doing good with Corinthos and Corbin, and he wants to move on to something more important. He needs to know who Sonny’s enemies are.

Jax walks into Nina’s office while she’s getting flowers for Obrecht. When she’s finished, she says she should get some for him too; he saved her aunt. He says he and Finn were just there at the right time. Nina wonders what the deal is between him and Hayden.

Finn asks Chase if something is wrong, and he says that’s what he’s trying to figure out. He needs to ask Hayden some questions. She says, ask away. He says, in public? but she says she doesn’t mind. Finn tells her the detective is his brother. Hayden says, since when? Chase says he’ll tell her the whole story on the way to the station. She asks what it’s about, and he says the attempted murder of Obrecht. Finn says, it’s a mistake, and Hayden asks if it’s some kind of joke. Chase says, not at all, and tells Finn he has orders. Hayden says, it’s ridiculous, but goes with him. Finn follows. Laura and Lulu come out of the elevator, and Chase greets Laura saying, Madam Mayor. Hayden is surprised, and Laura tells her, lots has changed since they last saw her. Hayden says she’s getting that impression.

Going into the restaurant, Lulu asks if Laura knew Hayden was back, but she says this is the first she’s heard. Valentin approaches them, and asks to talk to Lulu about Charlotte’s schedule for the rest of the summer. He knows she’s spread thin with Dante out of town for the foreseeable future. He’s there to pick up the slack where Charlotte is concerned.

Maxie and Peter wait at the WSB. Maxie tells Peter, relax, but he says, it’s not every day he walks into the enemy’s lair. She says, they’re not the enemy anymore. He’s one of the good guys. He says, some might disagree, but she says plenty will agree when they reunite Dante with his family.

Jason tells Sam, Shiloh is on his way to GH to pick up DNA test results he’s had run on Wiley. Mac comes out, saying he has a warrant for Shiloh’s arrest, and Jason tells him that Shiloh is at GH. Mac says it makes his job easier. Sam says she’ll see him there, and he tells them he hopes they don’t think he’s deputizing them. Sam says it’s personal to her. Shiloh didn’t just hurt her, but hurt her family. Mac says, what the hell. He’s only a temp anyway.

Curtis tells Jordan that he can get used to that kind of check-up. Jordan says, only good news. He says her kidney is functioning properly, and she’s on track with the anti-rejection meds. They couldn’t ask for much more. Jordan says, the green light to go back to work, and he says she’s impossible. She’s glad her recovery is going smoothly, and she’s aware of how lucky she is, but she’s going stir crazy. Curtis says, not for much longer.

Shiloh tells Lucas that Wiley is his son, and he has the DNA test to prove it. Lucas says he can’t take Wiley away from his parents. Shiloh says he’ll be just as good a dad as Lucas and Brad ever were. Better.

In the interrogation room, Chase asks Hayden, if given the opportunity, would she push Obrecht over the side? She says, tempting, but no. Is she under arrest? He says, it’s just a friendly chat. She says they’re not friends, and she doesn’t speak to the police without her lawyer present. Finn looks through the window. Chase goes out to the squad room, and Finn asks him to go easy on Hayden. Chase says, she’s making it difficult for herself. Finn says, that’s her style. Under the cutting remarks, there’s a really good person. Chase says it sounds like Finn knows her well. Who is she?

Jax says Nina has been given the wrong impression. Nina says, on second thought, she doesn’t need to know. His personal life is just that – personal. He says she brought it up, but she says upon further consideration, they should keep their relationship professional. His private life is his, and hers is hers. Jax gets a call from Hayden, who says she needs a lawyer. Finn’s brother dragged her to the police station for the attempted murder of Obrecht. He says, Liesl? And she asks if he knows another one. After he hangs up, Nina asks what was that about her aunt? but he says he can’t say. He wouldn’t want to share personal details.

Valentin tells Lulu that he’s offering to have Charlotte stay for the summer. He thinks it would be good for her. She says she’d prefer to stick to the court ordered schedule, and he says, fine. He just thought he’d free her to work on her marriage. Laura says, Lulu has lots of help from her family – like Sonny. She wonders how Sonny would feel about Valentin interfering in his son’s affairs. Valentin says she doesn’t need thinly veiled threats. They’re on the same team, wanting the best for Charlotte. He was just trying to help.

Sonny tells Dev, Josslyn’s father isn’t dangerous, just irritating. He’s bound to run into Jax, since he’s living with Josslyn. He’s going to wonder who Dev is. Dev says there is one way to avoid that, and Sonny asks what he has in mind. Dev suggests he not go to school.

Michael visits Willow in her cell. He asks how she is, and she says, good. Better, now that he’s there. She has great news. He just missed her mother. She got a temporary release from Pentonville to give the police her statement, incriminating Shiloh. He says, so she turned? and Willow says, completely. Something shifted, and it’s like she finally saw the scope of Shiloh’s crimes. They’re arresting him now. He’ll never get his hands on Wiley.

Shiloh says Lucas did a great job, but he’ll take it from here. Unfortunately, Wiley won’t remember who Lucas is, but Shiloh will. Lucas grabs him, calling him a son of a bitch, and slams him up against the wall. Jordan and Curtis run over, and Shiloh tells Jordan to arrest Lucas. She says, no can do. She’s in no position to make an arrest. Mac joins them, and says he is. David Henry Archer, you’re under arrest.

Willow tells Michael that she was totally shocked when she saw Harmony. After all this time, Harmony was like her mom again; like she was before DOD. She said she saw Shiloh for who he is. She says Michael will never guess who her mother’s cellmate is – Nelle. She said Nelle talks about Jonah all the time. It sounds like she misses him as much as Michael does.

Shiloh asks why Mac isn’t arresting Lucas. Lucas assaulted him. Mac asks if there are witnesses. Curtis says he didn’t witness any assault. Just two guys, having it out. Mac asks if anyone saw anything different, and Jordan says, nope. Even though nobody asked him, Shiloh thinks he might name his son David Henry. Wiley is too precious a for his son. Lucas says Wiley isn’t his son, but Shiloh says when the court sees the DNA evidence, they’ll think differently. He tells Sam that she can visit, and she says if he’s in Pentonville, she just might.

Sonny says Dev is going school. End of discussion. He tells Dev that he has to have an education in order to succeed in this country. Dev is concerned that Josslyn and her friends will see how far behind he is, and he’ll draw attention to himself. Sonny says he’ll get Dev a tutor. Dev says he looked it up. He’s old enough to drop out. It’s a waste of his talent. He wants to be out learning in the real world, working for Sonny.

Chase asks if Hayden is Finn’s ex-girlfriend, and Finn says, ex fiancé. It’s complicated, and ended badly. Chase asks if he’s defending Hayden, and Finn says she made mistakes, but there’s no way she’d try to kill Obrecht. Hayden saved his life. Chase says maybe one day Finn will trust him enough to tell him the whole story. Finn sighs, and Chase says, maybe not. Jax comes in, looking for Chase. He introduces himself, and says they have a friend of his in custody – Hayden.

Laura tells Lulu not to let Valentin get to her, but Lulu admits nothing he said was untrue. Dante is gone indefinitely, and he’s not in touch. He told her not to wait. She has two kids at home, and every day she goes to work, going on fake dates for an investigative piece that makes her miss Dante. She should be respecting him, and give him the space and time he needs to heal. Laura says Lulu has been an angel. It’s natural she’d want answers. Lulu says she’s feeling resentful, when Dante is trying to get the help he needs. What about the help she needs?

A WSB agent looks at Maxie and Peter’s ID’s. He says he hopes the know how much trouble they caused their friend. He’ll have to be relocated. Maxie says it’s important they speak to their friend about his family. They have a lot to talk about. He goes back into the office, and Maxie asks Peter if he noticed the guy was armed. Doesn’t he think that’s excessive? Peter says, not necessarily. Maybe Dante is being protected.

Michael tells Willow, Nelle is broken, and can’t be repaired. Whenever she’s kind, it’s because she’s manipulating someone. No one should believe a word she says. She’s sorry to upset him, and he says the night Jonah was born, Nelle put him in Michael’s hands. She cried the right tears, but he knew deep down that she liked seeing him hurt. He wishes he could bring Jonah back, but his son is gone. He’ll be damned if he lets Shiloh take Wiley away. Willow says he won’t if he never knows the truth, but Michael says Shiloh got a call from GH that the DNA test results are in. He’s afraid it will prove he’s Wiley’s father.

Mac asks if Shiloh is coming, or does he have to cuff him? Shiloh asks what the charge is, and Mac says, extortion, false promises, and he’s a suspect in the death of Douglas Miller. (Once again, I almost type Dennis Miller.) Sam says she’ll testify that he threatened her. Lorraine will also testify against him. Shiloh looks confused for a moment, and Sam says, she stopped calling herself Harmony. Jason says he doesn’t have an alibi for the night Douglas died. Sam says, it’s over. He’s over. Shiloh says Harmony would never do that. She’s his son’s grandmother. Mac tells an officer to cuff Shiloh. He’s under arrest. He reads Shiloh his rights.

Sonny asks what Dev thinks he does, and Dev says, he’s in the coffee business. Sonny says Dev isn’t a citizen. The further away he is from customs, the better. Dev says he can make himself useful. He could be the solution to a problem Sonny never knew he had. Sonny asks if that’s what Dev had in mind. Was he looking for a safe place, or a place in Sonny’s business?

Chase says Hayden’s record is something. Fraud, fraud, blackmail, false statements, perjury, and her favorite, fraud. How could his brother have wanted to marry her? Finn said she was capable of a lot of things, but she’s not a killer. Finn has never mentioned her before. Why should he believe her? She says Finn has a habit of compartmentalizing. Chase asks her to tell him all she knows about his brother, and what he needs to know about her.

Valentin goes up to the Crimson office, and Nina asks how it went with Lulu. He says, as expected. She had no interest in him taking care of Charlotte for the summer. She says, but he did it anyway, and she admires him for it. She says something is bothering him. If it’s not Lulu, what is it? Valentin says, Jax. Her new boss is not forthcoming. He doesn’t think Jax is concerned about Crimson, but concerned with what happens between the two of them.

Dev says he was in full survival mode when Sonny met him. It’s the first time he’s thought about his future. Sonny says if he gets an education, he can be anything he wants. Dev says he wants to stand on his own; be respected, and not be afraid of anyone. Like Sonny. Sonny says if Dev wants his trust, it has to be earned. He’ll keep Dev in mind for a business opportunity, but he has to learn when to take no for an answer. Go to school. Dev says, if Sonny insists. He does, and tells Dev to think about nailing down the background. He’s sending Dev to the MetroCourt. Carly will give him a job there. Dev says, not the warehouse? Sonny says if he wants to prove himself, do it by taking direction.

Valentin tells Nina that Jax has files on him and Cassandra. He has a source who’s seen them, and is working on what’s inside and why they exist. Nina says, no offense, but considering his reputation and last name, it would be surprising if Jax didn’t have a file on him. Valentin asks, why have one on Cassandra? Nina asks what he thinks is in it, and he says he doesn’t know. That’s what his source is working on. She asks him why he doesn’t just say it. His source is Curtis.

Chase asks Hayden to tell him about the relationship his brother kept secret. They can exchange stories. Jax is brought in, and Hayden says, her white knight. Where’s his horse? Chase says security footage cleared Hayden. She says he knew she was innocent, and just wanted to pump her for information about his brother. Mac says if they’re finished with whatever that was, he’s bringing in a prisoner that might interest Chase. He leaves, and Shiloh smirks his way in.

Willow asks how Shiloh obtained DNA proof. Michael doesn’t know, but Shiloh was dropping hints at Oscar’s will reading. She says, if he can prove he’s Wiley’s father, she’s there for no reason. It’s all for nothing.

Sam tells Lucas to go home to Brad and Wiley. He says he’s not okay to drive, and she says she’ll drive. Lucas wonders how he’ll face Brad, and Sam says he doesn’t have to. It’s over. Lucas says, is it?

Laura asks what kind of help Lulu needs, and she says the kind Dante gave her. The one she knew, who would do everything he could to support his family while he was gone. That’s not the person he is right now. He hasn’t been himself since he came back from Turkey. Laura wonders if being separated makes it harder to heal. Lulu says she’s not a psychiatrist. Laura says, but they have those there. Lulu asks if the WSB doesn’t know how to handle it best. It’s not their first experience in deprogramming. Laura says their mission statement is to help all over the world, but they don’t treat their agents well. They’re not fighting for her marriage. Lulu says, so she has to.

The agent tells Maxie and Peter that their visit can’t be accommodated at this time. The patient refuses to see them. Maxie asks if he told them who they were, and that it’s on behalf of Dante’s wife, who’s worried sick. The agent says, he’s aware of that, and doesn’t care.

On the phone, Jordan suggests Robert involve the Feds in a case against Shiloh. Curtis gives her the eye, and she says, it’s just a call, not a stakeout. He tells her, he didn’t say anything. If he did, it would be that it’s the most engaged he’s seen her in moths. Finn approaches them, and says he talked to Jordan’s kidney doctor, and her kidney is the picture of health. And she shows no sign of infection. Jordan asks if she can go back to work, and he says her surgeon needs to decide, but he’ll put in a good word. He has an ulterior motive. Maybe she could make a call, and clear Hayden of Obrecht’s near-drowning.

Jax brings Hayden back to his office. He says the reason she kissed him at the reception was because she wanted Finn’s attention. She says she was happy to see him. He says, for Finn’s benefit, say something. If she doesn’t tell him they’re not together, he will.

Nina says Curtis is conveniently made head of security at Aurora just before the files are uncovered. She’s telling Drew. Valentin says, please don’t. She’ll blow Curtis’s cover. She says, Drew will be in the dark, and he asks her to give him time to find what he can. She doesn’t like keeping secrets or having them kept from her. Valentin says he’s worried they’re the crux of Jax’s plan. She says, because of Cassandra? and he says he can’t think of another reason. No one knows that they were involved in Cassandra’s near-death. She says they do, and Finn, Anna, and Obrecht. That leaves Cassandra.

Lulu asks if Sonny has a minute. He asks, what’s wrong? She says, the same thing that’s been wrong for months – Dante.

Lucas tells Sam that he remembers getting his acceptance letter to med school. This is the opposite. A paper never felt so heavy. It’s proof of Wiley’s father; proof he can be taken away from them. Sam says, it will never happen. Lucas says she doesn’t know that. Shiloh has been exposed as a criminal a hundred times over, and got away so far. Sam says the judge isn’t letting him near Wiley or taking him away.

Michael tells Willow, nothing went to waste. Her being there gave time for Sam and Jason to build a case. Shiloh is going to be convicted, and go to prison. Willow asks, for how long? Ten years? Five? Michael says he murdered her father. He’ll get life. She says what if he’s wrong? What if Shiloh beats this charge like he’s beaten everything else? What if he goes free, and takes Wiley? Michael says the test results aren’t admissible. They’ve come this far, and fought so hard; they can’t give up. He’s going to GH to see what’s going on. She thanks him for being there for her and Wiley. He says there’s no place he’d rather be.

At the station, Mac says, the evidence is quite damning. Chase says there’s no reason to keep Willow in custody now, and Mac says he’ll call Diane. Shiloh is brought in, and he says he wants a lawyer. Mac asks if he can afford one, and he says he has stock in ELQ. He can afford the best. This case isn’t going to stand. It never does.

Jax says he and Hayden have a business arrangement. They’re not together. She says she’ll tell Finn, and he suggests she do it sooner rather than later. They have a job to do. Don’t let issues with her ex get in the way.

Finn calls Anna, and leaves a message. He asks her to call when she gets the chance. It’s nothing urgent. He just wants her to know Hayden is back in town.

Nina asks Valentin why Jax would connect them to Cassandra, unless someone told him. They didn’t, Obrecht didn’t, and she can’t see Anna or Finn doing it. Valentin says, there’s only one option. Jax and Cassandra are in touch. Jax comes into the Crimson office with Hayden. He says he was helping Hayden with a legal difficulty, and wants to get on with the budget meeting. Nina says Valentin can walk Hayden out, but Jax says, she’s part of this. Starting immediately, all financial decisions go through her. Jax tells Nina to say hello to her new CFO.

Laura gets a call from Mac saying Shiloh is under arrest. She says she can’t hear, and steps away from the table, leaving her bag on it. Dev comes in, and knocks her bag down. He starts to pick it up, and Jason takes it from his hand. They stare at each other.

Sonny asks if Lulu has heard from Dante. she says, no, and it’s getting to the point where his absence is more than she can take. Sonny is sorry to hear that, and asks if there’s anything he can do. Lulu says he found Dante and brought him home once before. She needs him to do it again.

Maxie tells the agent that Dante’s wife is worried sick. He tells them, wait there. Someone will be there soon to show them out. Maxie says she doesn’t accept this, and goes into the office. She says, Dante! No!

Jordan says Curtis didn’t tell her Hayden was back. He says the information got lost. Chase went overboard. He can’t believe Chase dragged Hayden to the PCPD. He wishes they were following her lead. He thinks they want her back. She asks if he’s suggesting she go back to work. They get in the elevator.

Chase goes to Willow’s cell. He tells her Shiloh has been arrested, and Judge Walters ordered her release. They kiss.

Sam tells Michael that he just missed the party. Shiloh was arrested. He says, fantastic. He asks about the DNA results, and Sam says he didn’t get to open them. Michael tells Lucas to destroy them. I can’t believe no one has actually bothered to take a look at the results.

Shiloh is brought into the cell, and says hello to Willow. He says he won’t be there long. He’ll be free soon. Free to be you and me a father to his son Wiley. A new day will dawn. It always does. Zzzzz…

Michael says, rip it, burn it, get rid of it. Sam says the records will still be there. There’s nothing to stop Shiloh from confirming he’s Wiley’s father. Not really answering that question, Michael says, it’s not legally admissible. It’s a failed threat. Genes don’t matter. Wiley has only two parents he needs or knows. Get rid of it. Lucas rips the envelope up, and throws it into the trashcan.

On Monday, Laura talks to Hayden, Jason says there’s going to be trouble for everyone, and Lulu says it’s time to make it right.

👠 The Sainted One…

Here’s the story of a lovely lady, who basically got ousted from her friend circle by mean girls. But they own it, which makes it okay.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Sibley tells Ava, shh… Ava says, this is ridiculous. What was she thinking? Sibley says, Kiki is here.

Obrecht goes out on deck, taking in the night air. Someone pushes her over the railing.

Drew and Kim find the fuse box. Drew suddenly feels a pain, and says, what was that? He slides to the floor. Kim flips the switch, getting the lights on, and looks at the syringe in her hand.

Elizabeth can’t believe Hayden made it. Hayden says nothing could keep her from being with her sister on the happiest day of her life.

Kim brings Drew to a stateroom. He says he doesn’t feel so great. She tells him, just lean back, and touches his face.

On deck, Cameron says he can’t believe Hayden is back. Trina says she thought they’d had enough of Hayden. Josslyn says, her mom has. They hate each other. They hear Obrecht calling for help, and Josslyn thinks there’s someone in the water.

Ava says Kiki made the lights go off and on, and Sibley says it could be Kiki reaching out from beyond the grave, or a blown fuse. Ava says she can feel Kiki, and asks if Kiki hears her. She says, please talk to her.

Ava calls for Kiki, saying she misses her very much. She can’t tell Kiki how sorry she is for the awful things she said. She wonders if Kiki can hear her, and says, please, something. Sibley tells Ava, be quiet. She’s trying to concentrate. Ava says, Kiki was there. Where is she now?

Hayden says she’ll leave Elizabeth and Franco to celebrate. She has to say hello to someone. Curtis says, what a coincidence; he’s right there. They hug, and she says she missed him. He suggests they take a stroll on deck and catch up. She says she has someone else to say hello to first. She hugs Jax. He’s glad she could make it. Cameron runs in, saying, man overboard. Josslyn says someone just went over the starboard side. Jax and Finn run out.

Lulu arrives at the MetroCourt, and Maxie calls her over. Peter asks if she cares to join them, and Maxie asks if she’s there to bait the burglar. She says she is, and Maxie tells Lulu to sit while she gives her a lecture. Lulu says, with any luck, her date will stand her up, and Peter says, because he’s robbing her house. Lulu says her decoy house. Hopefully, she’ll join them for celebration afterward when her date is at the police station. Lulu sees a guy come in, and says her date’s here. Maxie says, cute, clean, well-dressed; too bad Lulu is married who’s deeply in love with her husband. Lulu thanks her for the reminder, and says she doesn’t want to waste his entire evening. She walks over to her date, and Peter asks Maxie how she proposes to find Dante this time. She’s got that look again.

Kim pushes Drew back on the bed. She tells him that he has no idea how badly she wished he’d been able to see Oscar grow, but he’ll be there for every moment this time, and he’ll forgive her when he sees the baby. He says, Oscar. She strokes his face, and I’m actually kind of creeped out.

Obrecht is pulled out of the water, and brought on deck. Nina runs to her. Finn tells her that she doesn’t want to quit. She doesn’t want to leave all those schemes she’s got going on. Nina asks, what happened? and Jax says, she must have fallen overboard. Finn says, come on Obrecht, and does CPR. He pumps her chest, and she coughs on him. He wipes his mouth and tells Nina, she’s going to make it.

Kim tells Drew that Oscar used ask about his father, but she didn’t want to talk about it. She gets undressed, and gets in bed with him. She says she should have. That’s what tonight is about. She knows he’s going to be there for the baby they’re making tonight, created from love. She kisses him. Julian walks in, and she says it’s not what he thinks. He asks, what the hell is going on here? and Kim says, please, just go.

Obrecht is brought back inside, and Epiphany tells everyone to give her room. Valentin can’t believe it, and Nina says, thank God the kids heard her. She asks where he’s been.

Lulu thanks her date, and tells him that she’s sorry. He says, that he showed up and isn’t robbing her house? She says, something like that. He says it’s certainly the most convoluted explanation for breaking a date that he’s gotten. He says it was still great to meet her. He hopes she catches the burglar, and says, he’s not just decoy while his partner is robbing her house. She says he’s great. He’s funny and smart, and she’s sure there are plenty of good reasons why he’s single. But from their brief conversation, it doesn’t seem like he needs an app to get a date. She’s sure he’ll make some woman happy. She realizes she’s rambling, and asks if he’s stopping her. He says, if anything, he wants her to keep going. She sounds amazing.

Maxie tells Peter, it’s not like the WSB facility in Ithica is underground. It’s a bunch of office buildings. He says, with tremendous security. If she trespasses, it’s violating international law. They hear Lulu laughing, and Maxie says, some non-date. Lulu seems to be enjoying herself, and it’s not appropriate. Maxie says, so Ithaca?

Lulu’s date laughs about the amazing lengths his students will go to, to get off the hook; often in long, run-on sentences. She says, like her, but he says she’s better. She says it’s good to know she’s upped her game since high school. He tells her it’s the most enjoyable pretend date he’s been on.

Ava tells Sibley that she said Kiki was there, and Sibley says, she’s not there anymore. After what happened, her soul doesn’t wish to linger. Ava says, try again, but Sibley says, the session is over. Ava says Sibley isn’t going anywhere until she brings her daughter back.

Josslyn tells Cameron and Trina that Jax and Curtis pulled Obrecht out of the water, and Finn was giving her CPR. She gives Jax a towel, and he says, quick thinking. Josslyn says they didn’t do much. Cameron says Josslyn threw Obrecht a life preserver, and Josslyn says, but she was too weak to hold on. It wasn’t much of a rescue. Jax says they did what they were supposed to, all of them. He asks what he always tells Josslyn about these situations, and she says, never underestimate the value of a cool head.

Obrecht yells, get off me! adding something in German. Finn says, she’s back. Nurse, take the patient. Epiphany says, if she must, and he says, bless you.

Bobbie asks Brad where he’s been. He missed the excitement. He say he was getting some air, when the lights went out.

Cameron asks Hayden if she’s visiting, or is she back back? She says, excellent question. Curtis says it is, and asks if she’s got a ballpark answer, because he’s dying to know.

Julian asks what Kim gave Drew, and she says, a mild sedative. He asks if they… and Kim says they didn’t have sex; Julian stopped them. He asks if it’s what they both wanted, and she says Drew will love any child they have as much as Oscar. He says, that wasn’t his question, and she says he’s turning it into something it isn’t. He asks, what’s going on? and she tells him, stop it. He says she’s in pain; more than she can handle. He says he’s sorry, and she asks, what for? He says, for not recognizing how deep her grief went. She says, this will make it stop, but he says, no. That baby will never be Oscar. She says she knows that, but it might have a trace of Oscar; like his smile or eyes, or just a little gesture. He says it’s not fair to the baby to create a life as a reminder of a child she’ll always love more. It’s not fair. She says she misses Oscar so much. How will she explain things to Drew? Julian says they can deal with that later, but he thinks she should get out right now, before he wakes up. He leads her out of the room.

Elizabeth asks Curtis if he was able to use his PI skills to find out how long Hayden is staying, but he says she’s been cagey. He’s yet to determine how long she’s planning to stay, or how she’s connected to Jax. Hayden says she doesn’t know how long she’ll be in town, and she and Jax crossed paths in Rome. He hired he as a consultant, and they discovered they enjoy each other. Curtis says, same old cupcake. She acts like she’s giving a real juice, but in reality… Elizabeth says, there’s more going on than meets the eye.

Sibley tells Ava that her daughter’s spirit isn’t there anymore. Ava says, isn’t that convenient, and asks if she gets off on torturing the grieving. She’s toying with Ava’s loss, and will regret exploiting her child’s death. Sibley says, shhh… Ava asks, is Kiki…? and Sibley says, there’s something about a dinner; a special dinner. She really wanted to be there. Ava says they made a date a year ago; a girls night. When the reminder came up, Ava went by herself. Sibley is afraid Kiki is gone, and Ava says, get her back, but Sibley says, that’s not how it works. Ava says she just made contact. Do something; anything. She doesn’t care what it costs.

Nina thanks Curtis for helping, and says he’s a good friend. He says she makes it easy. She says, no; she doesn’t, and he agrees. She says she hasn’t thanked Jax, so she’s going to bite the bullet, and thank him now. She sees him with Hayden, and says she’d hate to interrupt an intimate moment.

Hayden gives Jax a jacket she found in the captain’s office. He says he’ll have to be sure to return it. She hasn’t told him if she’s accepting his proposal. She says she’s thinking about it.

Epiphany brings in some EMTs, telling them Obrecht’s vitals are fine, and so are her vocal chords. She tells Obrecht that the EMTs are going to ask her about her fall. Obrecht says she didn’t fall. She was pushed.

On deck, Elizabeth asks Finn how he is. She can’t imagine how he feels seeing Hayden. He says it was a great party, and thanks her for the invite. Congratulations. She asks if he knows that Obrecht claims she didn’t fall over the side of the boat because she was hammered. He says, she was pushed. She says, unfortunately, not by her. What about him? He says he’ll never tell. She says, given who’s on board, it could be anyone.

Maxie tells Peter that Spinelli will get them fake IDs, and official documents. There will even be a phone number in case their credentials are checked. She says he can be an important psychiatrist, and she can be his assistant. Wait, that was super sexist of her. She’ll be the doctor. Peter says her father is head of the WSB. Her face is most certainly in the security system. Someone might catch on. She says he might have a point.

Lulu tells her date that it was nice to meet him. One good thing she’s learned doing this story, is that there are plenty of nice people looking to make a connection. She hopes this hasn’t discouraged him. He says it would take more than a beautiful woman, inadvertently trapping him in her sting to make him give up on love. Now that he has his evening free, he’s going to work. As a teacher, he has several jobs. He says he’ll look for her bylines. She says, goodnight, Dustin Phillips.

Lulu goes back to Maxie and Peter’s table, and Maxie says someone looked like they were having a good time. Lulu says Dustin is a nice guy. Maxie asks if Dustin knows she’s married with children, and Lulu says, of course (🍷). He still found it in himself to be friendly and charming. Peter says, now that it’s over, does she care to join them for a drink. Lulu says she’ll be a third wheel. She’s going home to a nice hot bath. When Lulu is out of earshot, Maxie tells Peter, she’s texting her dad. She’s learned not to expect much from her dad, but he promised to step up if she ever needed him, and she’s not taking no for an answer this time.

Nina asks Obrecht who pushed her? but Obrecht says, it was dark. She didn’t see them. She was enjoying the calm night air, and the next thing she knew, she was in the drink. Nina says she was hammered. She suggests maybe it was less embarrassing for Obrecht to say she was pushed instead of admitting she ran into a pole and fell. Obrecht says she doesn’t run into poles. She was deliberately pushed.

Bobbie tells Scotty that Franco and Elizabeth finally get their reception, and one harpy shows up out of the blue, and another nearly drowns. Scotty says, here’s to Port Charles, and they clink glasses. She tells him stay there and work on his toast. She’ll round up the happy couple, everyone will raise their glasses, and they’ll get the wedding will be back on track. Scotty asks why he always has to save the day?

Drew wakes up, and wonders, what the hell is happening? Everything looks blurry to him. He pulls his pants on, and stumbles out. Curtis sees him, and asks, what happened? Drew doesn’t know how he got there, and Curtis asks if he’s okay.

On deck, Franco tells Elizabeth it was weird. Obrecht was rambling about Brad, Lucas, and Wiley’s real father. She was so hammered. He’s worried once she’s sober, she’ll clam up. Elizabeth says Obrecht trusts him. She’ll never understand it, but they care about each other. He doesn’t understand it either. Elizabeth says, tomorrow when she’s sober, he’ll get the truth out of her. Bobbie overhears.

Drew asks where he is, and Curtis says, a stateroom on The Haunted Star. Drew knows he was on the boat, but how did he get to the room? He wonders if he got drunk, but Curtis says he didn’t see that. He says, hang on. He thinks he saw something. He goes out in the hallway, and sees the syringe on a chair. He gets a cloth, and brings it back, saying, look what he found. Judging from Drew’s state of mind, and his pupils, Curtis thinks somebody drugged him. Drew remembers being with Kim. He flashes back to saying he doesn’t feel great, and Kim saying she’ll take care of everything, and starting to take her clothes off. Curtis says he’s calling Jordan, but Drew tells him, don’t call her. Curtis says, whoever did this needs to be caught. Drew says, the person who did this is in enough trouble already.

Julian leads Kim to the pier. She says, she was about to… She can’t look at Drew again. She doesn’t know who she is anymore. Who she is without Oscar. She doesn’t know what do. Julian holds her, and says he’ll get her some help, and he’ll be with her every step of the way.

Scotty asks Bobbie where the bride and groom are. He has his toast ready. She says, something came up, and she’ll be right back. She grabs Brad, saying she just heard something he needs to know about.

Jax introduces Josslyn to Hayden. Hayden says Josslyn must be Carly’s daughter. She couldn’t be anyone else. Josslyn says she’ll take that as a compliment, and Hayden says, it’s meant as one. Josslyn says she’ll tell her mom that Hayden said so. Jax says he’ll take Josslyn home, but she says she’ll share a ride with her friends. He says hell cancel the limo then. She says, he didn’t say limo.

Valentin congratulates Franco, and says he’ll see Nina in the car. Nina says, great reception. It was smart to get married in lock- up. There’s no one to object. Franco says, the guard looked like he might say something any moment. She tells him that she’s happy for him and his family. Even Elizabeth. She thinks they’re pretty perfect for each other. He thanks her, and she says she wants him to be happy. He deserves it. She kisses his cheek, and leaves.

Bobbie tells Brad that she overheard Franco say Obrecht knows who Wiley’s biological father is. He asks why anyone would believe anything that homicidal drama queen has to say? She asks, why was she talking about Wiley at all? He wishes he knew, and she says they can’t take a chance. She tells Brad to fill Lucas in, and call Alexis. The last thing they need is loose information flying abound about her grandson.

Ava tells Sibley that she had doubts, but there’s no way she could have known about the restaurant. She knows Kiki was really there, and needs her back. There’s so much she needs to tell Kiki. Sibley says she can’t feel her, and Ava says, there must be some other way. Sibley says she could try channeling Kiki, but it’s not always possible. When it works, she can be a conduit between the physical and spiritual worlds, but it takes time and preparation. It’s not something to be taken lightly, and she can’t always control what comes, especially if the spirits are unsettled. Ava says she believes Sibley. There’s no need to try and make it spooky. Sibley says she’s not doing this for effect. She’s warning Ava that once the door is opened, it’s not easily closed.

Lulu looks up Dustin’s profile, smiles, and goes into the elevator. Maxie looks at her phone, and says, amazing! Peter thought they were done with fashion week until September. She says she’s so glad he’s been paying attention, but her dad got them in to see Dante. Peter says, Ithaca, here we come.

Kim leaves a message for Dr. Massey. She wants to make an appointment. Tomorrow or as soon as possible. It’s an emergency.

Curtis wants to make sure Drew gets home safe. Drew says he can take care of himself, but Curtis says he has no choice, and helps him up. Drew is still groggy, and says, let’s just get out of here. He looks at the bed and flashes back to Kim saying, he’ll accept the baby they make tonight will be created out of love. He asks Curtis to get him the hell out of there.

Trina tells Josslyn and Cameron, that was the sweetest, craziest, most intense wedding reception she’s been too. Josslyn says, clearly, she’s never been to a Corinthos or Spencer wedding. Cameron says, no bomb threats, nobody got slapped, and only one person almost drowned. Trina thinks next time they do something, they should invite Dev. He’s cute, and mysterious, and annoys Josslyn, which is a plus. Cameron says she wants Josslyn to be annoyed, and Trina says, if it gets her out of the house. Josslyn says she didn’t come there because of Dev, but she had fun. They’re her best friends in the entire world. The three of them sit, Cameron in the middle with an arm around each girl.

Sibley tells Ava, when she has all the components to channel the spirit, she’ll be in touch. Ava says she’d better be. Sibley says she will. Not because Ava is threatening her, but because Ava and Kiki need to talk. Ava asks if Kiki hears that. They’ll talk soon.

Elizabeth tells Jax that she’s glad he was there. He wishes her all love she deserves, and she says, even if it’s with Franco. She tells Jax that he really is a changed man, and Jax says he makes her happy. If anyone deserves happiness, it’s her.

Finn comes face-to-face with Hayden. He says, hi, and she returns the hi. She says, now that they got that out of the way, excuse her. Jax is taking her back. Elizabeth thanks her for coming, and Hayden says she wouldn’t miss it. She and Jax leave.

Scotty asks if Bobbie took care of whatever was so important. She says she wouldn’t say it’s taken care of, but she did what she could. She’s ready to call it a night. Elizabeth thanks them for coming, and Scotty thanks Elizabeth for making an honest man of her son. Bobbie says he did a 180, and she’s proud of him. She tells Franco, be good to her, and he says, always. She tells Elizabeth, don’t wait for happiness. Grab it by both hands. Scotty says that was his toast. Now he’s got nothing, except he loves them. Franco says he loves Scotty, and thanks him. Bobbie and Scotty leave.

Franco says he thought they’d never leave, and Elizabeth says, at least they didn’t leave in an ambulance. Franco asks may he have this dance, Mrs. Baldwin? She says, her pleasure, Mr. Baldwin. They walk out to the floor. He asks if she knows what he was looking forward to the most. She says, tell her, and he says, just being by her side every day for the rest of his life. She says, good answer, and they kiss.

Tomorrow, Cameron says Oscar’s will is being ready today, Drew tells Kim that she crossed the line, Sam has evidence against Shiloh, and Jason asks Brick who’s getting a new identity.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Ugh. Thank God this is the finale. I’m not that interested in watching this bunch of mean women, who are old enough to know better, anymore. LVP won’t be at the reunion either. The only interest I’d have in watching the next season would be to see who they decide to turn on next. I don’t really believe LVP walks on water, but even if she might finagle things sometimes, it’s not like she’s deliberately cruel. And these chicks became like a gang.

Kim visits Kyle. She asks if Kim is hungry. She says she could eat. Kyle says, If Kim was a guest, she’d make her something, but since she’s Kyle’s sister, she can feed herself. In her interview, Kyle says she and Kim have gone through a lot. We flash back to a lot, including the infamous limo scene. She thinks their relationship will always be a work in progress. She asks how the baby is. Kim says she never imagined she’d have kids who would have babies, and she’d feel this way. She’s in a new phase of her life, and happy. She asks what going on with Kyle, and Kyle tells her Alexia is enjoying being in the business with Mauricio. In Kyle’s interview, she says when Alexia first came home from college, it was an adjustment, but she learned if she wants to succeed, she has to go out there and make that money. She tells Kim about the agency’s upcoming celebration. Kim says she’ll do her best to come. Kyle warns her that LisaR will be there. Kim says, no matter what she does to make things right, she’s going to have that with LisaR. She doesn’t want to be LisaR’s friend, but she doesn’t want a dagger coming at her, or being called the c-word. In Kim’s interview, she says she and LisaR will never be friends. There have been moments they’ve tried to make amends – we flash back to Farrahween when they decided to forgive each other – but she doesn’t know if LisaR is sincere. She tells Kyle that she just wants to get along, but thinks LisaR has it out for her.

Dorit tells PK that she’s still reeling. She could have done without Camille’s sh*t. She’s the most two-faced human Dorit has ever met. Wow. In LA? Really? PK says he’s not really surprised. Dorit tells him that Camille said she didn’t know how Dorit has so much, when PK clamed bankruptcy. PK says he filed in ’09; ten years ago, before he knew her. It has no bearing on their lifestyle now, and it’s his job to take care of Dorit. What irritates Dorit are some of the things in the press about the Beverly Beach lawsuit. She can’t discuss it, and she knows Camille wants to throw in digs. In her interview, she says the lawsuit is hanging over her head. It’s had a devastating effect on Beverly Beach, and she had to find a new manufacturer. She wonders why anyone would want to ruin her reputation. PK asks where Camille gets her money. In Dorit’s interview, she asks if Camille forgot where her money came from. (Later, on Watch What Happens Live, Camille answered that question – no, she didn’t.) She asks if there’s any chance PK can come to the party, but he says he has his daughter. Dorit explains in her interview that PK’s daughter, Atlanta, is now eighteen, and just moved to the US. She says she’d like him to be there, but understands. He asks if she can avoid Camille, but she says it would be impossible.

Everyone gets ready for the agency party. Dorit whines to her glam squad that Camille is low and dirty.

Teddi calls Kyle, saying she’s running late. In the limo, Kyle says she is too. Apparently, a little rain is going on, and this causes everyone to freak out, and traffic to be slower than it usually is. Denise and Aaron pick up Dorit. Denise asks if Dorit’s house is still for sale. Dorit says she wants more yard for the kids. Denise says they’ve been bouncing back and forth from different hotels, and it’s been hard, stressful, and sad. In Denise’s interview, she says the situation with the fire tested their marriage. If they can get through this, they can get through anything. She tells Dorit that she loves Malibu, but doesn’t feel safe because of the toxins from the smoke. Dorit thanks them for picking her up. Denise tells Aaron, if anything happens. he has to have Dorit’s back. Dorit says people like Camille scare her. I say, oh please. In Dorit’s interview, she says she hates knowing she’ll be face-to-face with Camille. She doesn’t know which face Camille will bring out. Hopefully, not the batsh*t crazy one. I guess she’s not that scared, since she’s saying that on camera for posterity.

The guests begin to arrive. Kyle tells Mauricio, if her boob falls out, let her know. Futuristic servers greet the guests and carry trays with food and drink, and there are guys on stilts in futuristic costumes milling around. As much as you can mill on stilts anyway. In Kyle’s interview, she says when Mauricio started the agency, it was his idea to build a legacy their daughters could carry on. When she looks at what they’ve built, she feels happy and fulfilled. She asks Teddi if anyone else is there (i.e. Dorit or Camille). She tells Alexia that she’s not comfortable when her friends are arguing. Alexia says Kyle’s friends are next level.

Both Erika and LisaR decide to wear wigs, independently of each other. In Erika’s interview, she says she loves a pink wig. We flash back to a few times when she’s worn one. I’m not sure why she brings this up, since both of their wigs are platinum. She says, it never rains in LA, and a little bit can ruin your whole situation. Mauricio says blah-blah-blah about the building. Camille walks in. In her interview, she says she’s disappointed with her friends’ actions and behavior. She’s sick of being on the chopping block. It’s pretty heartless.

Blah-blah-blah, real estate talk. Teddi says, oh no; she’s here, and again I say, oh please. Kyle says Camille came all the way there in the rain. Camille says she came for Kyle, and Kyle asks how she is after the other night. She tells Kyle, the other night was a sh*t show. They ganged up on her. Kyle says it wasn’t their intention, and Camille can’t understand why they’d bring up anything at all. No surprise, Teddi tries to insert herself in the conversation, and Camille tells her, shut it down. Teddi isn’t worth her time. She didn’t jump on the LVP bitch train, and it’s not fair. She says she’s disappointed in Kyle, but Kyle insists they weren’t attacking her. In Kyle’s interview, she says Camille seemed remorseful when they left the dinner, and now she comes in guns blazing. What’s going on? Teddi steps into the reception area, as Erika and LisaR are coming in. She says she’s taking a breath. Camille came in hot with her and Kyle. She doesn’t like to be talked down to, but doesn’t like that Camille says they attacked her. Erika wonders how you stand up for yourself without going overboard. In her interview, Teddi says Camille can’t tear her down to make herself feel better about her sh*tty behavior. Kyle tells Camille it was a miscommunication. The euphemism for when people act nasty and get caught.

Dorit and Denise arrive next. Denise and LisaR agree they look like high class hookers. In Denise’s interview, she’s sure some hookers dress like this, but not the ones she’s met. LisaR asks for chat with Camille, and Camille says, no. After being attacked, she wants to wait a while. LisaR says Camille seemed like she understood, and was fine with things the other night. What changed? Camille says, after thinking about it, she realized it’s not her fault. She doesn’t have to say she’s sorry. LisaR says she was just sharing what happened in the van. Camille says she and LVP know what they’ve been through. LisaR asks if she’s okay with what she did to Dorit. In her interview, LisaR says Camille bringing up LVP is annoying. She feels sympathetic to what the women have gone through, but their behaviors existed in the group before they had loss. She tells Camille that she’s empathetic, and Camille says, really? In LisaR’s interview, she says when she lost her father, she wasn’t cut any slack. She was accused of being a pill popper and drug addict. We flash back to that, and I can’t believe she’s bringing up that silliness. Not to mention, she didn’t tell people about her father right away. And while I’m at it, she had some fine sensitivity when LVP’s brother died, posting birthday greetings along with a joke about pills – which is how he died. She asks if she played the victim. Camille asks why come at her because she said something nice about LVP? How disgusting is she? It’s disgustingly petty. Let’s figure out who the mean girl is. She thinks it’s LisaR.

Zzzzzzz… this party. Denise approaches Camille, and Camille says she likes Denise. She’s not getting into it. She does feel bad about what she said about Dorit though. Denise says she needs to apologize. In Denise’s interview, she says she and Camille have both been attacked in the press. To see this side of Camille, and for her to lash out at Dorit is unacceptable. Kyle picks up the mic, and says she’s excited and proud of what her husband and the agency have accomplished. When Alexia was six months old, he lost his job, and she suggested they get real estate licenses. It was a big risk for Mauricio going out on his own, but they’ve gone from six people to four hundred and eighty-five. Mauricio thanks everyone at the agency and his family. Camille and Denise continue their conversation, and Dorit tells them to let Mauricio finish his speech. Camille wants to apologize to Dorit. Dorit tells the others that she’s shaking. My third oh please of the night. Camille says she feels awful about what she said. Dorit says it hurt her. In Dorit’s interview, she says she doesn’t take anything Camille says seriously. She’s gone too low. One of the stilt dudes strolls by.

Assuming it’s her business, Teddi tells Camille that she doesn’t know what going on. She’s sorry for what Camille is going through, but she doesn’t like how Camille talked down to her. If Camille doesn’t like her, don’t hang out with her. Which is amusing, since Teddi keeps seeking Camille out. Camille says Teddi blew off her daughter. We flash back to Camille hearing that Teddi ignored her daughter at an event. Teddi swears she said hi. Denise butts in, disappointing me. Camille says Teddi snubbed her daughter, but Teddi insists she never did. Camille knows she wouldn’t do that. Camille says she doesn’t know that, and that’s not how her daughter feels. In Camille’s interview, she says, Teddi has a hard time being accountable for her own behavior. She says her daughter isn’t making it up, and Teddi says, stop talking down to her. Denise says Camille isn’t talking down to her. They’re not in seventh grade. She starts to say Camille knows some other thing, and Camille says again, she doesn’t know, especially after the other night. She tells Denise, back off, and Denise says, you back off. Because we’re not in seventh grade. In her interview, Denise says she was married Charlie, and can handle drama, but enough’s enough. Camille says she’s not going to be attacked. In her interview, Camille says, it hurt. It was unfair, the way they were coming after her and questioning her. She just lost her house and assistant. She needs time to heal. LisaR says all the women there for her. Camille says, she appreciates it, but it’s too much to process, and leaves.

In the car, Camille tells David that she’s not diminishing or dismissing her daughter’s feelings. He thinks she should chill out, and they should put it behind them. She thanks him for being there. Now that I’m thinking about it, why didn’t the ever-accountable and fan of apologies Teddi, just say she was sorry if she made Camille’s daughter feel snubbed?

Kyle tells the women not to go anywhere. She brought Provence to Denise, since she couldn’t be there. She brings out the rosé they were drinking, and we flash back to that. In her interview, she says the group has gotten close, and that’s something to celebrate. She was hoping Camille would be a part of it, but that’s not happening. Not tonight. They clink glasses, and LisaR says, cheers, to a fun effing time.

Six months later. The women gather at Kyle’s house, Kyle telling Erika that she looks like Mrs. Girardi today. She does look like a high-end Donna Reed. Lunch is set up outside. Dorit asks if anyone saw the video of LVP opening her restaurant in Vegas. She was wearing a crown, and came in on sleigh or something. We see the video, but it’s not a sleigh. It’s one of those things Cleopatra is carried on. (I looked it up, and it’s called a carrying chair/litter.) Camille is in the video, and Denise doesn’t know why she wasn’t invited. We see a clip of Camille visiting LVP, and telling her how the women came after her after she lost Scott and her house. As soon as LVP left, she was the target. LVP says after all the bullsh*t, she immersed herself in her Vegas project. Camille is sorry about Kyle, and LVP says her friendship was thrown in her face. Camille says, it’s not fair. Back at the table, Dorinda says LVP needs the devotion of the people around her. No wonder she’s called the queen. Kyle says, that’s why she wears a crown. Denise says she thought it was because she’s English.

LisaR says she ran into LVP in a parking garage. She heard LVP’s voice say, oh god. She didn’t say anything, and LVP got in her car. She was fumbling in her purse, and her nails were wet. LisaR asked if she needed some money. In her interview, she says she’s still willing to loan LVP a few bucks. She says LVP said, no, and if she did, she wouldn’t take LisaR’s money. Erika wonders, why wet nails in 2019? Kyle says she also bumped into LVP in Nieman Marcus. She said hi, and LVP said hello before she realized it was Kyle. She was really shocked. Kyle said she was sorry about how everything turned out, and everything that’s happened; it didn’t need be this way. LVP said Kyle called her a liar. We flash back to their depressing argument. Kyle says, she didn’t; those were LVP’s words. Oh come on. One more person that hides behind not using the exact words when they still conveyed the idea. She says, it felt sad. Nothing is going to change. She feels for what LVP is going through, but it doesn’t excuse her behavior, and it’s not behavior because she’s having a hard time. Teddi says they’re all capable of saying they’re sorry and moving on. There’s only one person who hasn’t apologized. Kyle says she can’t keep trying to fix it; she can’t do it anymore. In her interview, Kyle says, it felt like old times; she and LVP trying to talk through something. She misses her friend, but she never came around at all, and left no door open. Kyle tells them she felt lighter. She’s good. In her interview, she says, in hindsight, it feels like she was more invested in the friendship than LVP.

Erika says they’ve all made mistakes, and said they’re sorry. LisaR says she’s done things she’s not proud of, but has been able to move through it. She feels a sense of freedom with them, and doesn’t feel that much in life. She thanks them. Dorit asks Denise how the honeymoon stage is, and if they’re still in it. Denise says, always. In Denise’s interview, she says the fire made her realize she doesn’t need a lot in life. She’s had all the stuff, and realizes what she needs to live with simply. It was a lesson for her. Since it’s the finale, we see some text about her life. She’s moved from Malibu to Brentwood, and even though her married life is just beginning, she’s counting on a happy ending with Aaron. BA-DUM-CHH! Denise asks if Teddi and Edwin are still scheduling sex. In Teddi’s interview, she says she went along with LVP’s scheme because she’s a stupid idiot. No argument with that. She says she has to trust her gut, and no matter how hard it is, go directly to the person she has an issue with. Her blurb say she’s focusing on her business and family, and scheduling more time with Edwin. LisaR can’t believe how fast her kids have grown. They have prom and graduation; it’s happening. In her interview, she says she’s called people on their sh*t. We read that Amelia is off to college, and LisaR is an official empty nester, but still refuses to go camping with Harry. In Erika’s interview, she says she’s been with this group four years now. She was slow to open up, but it feels comfortable sharing. It’s nice to know she’s not alone. She says, things are good. We see that, although she loves her friends, she still takes pictures of her handwritten notes – just in case. Okay… Not sure where that’s coming from. Dorit says they’re still looking for a new home, and talks about her kids being at a yummy age. In her interview, she says there could have been better closure. She wasn’t prepared for the LVP trauma. The text says she’s still looking for her dream home, and Beverly Beach is debuting men’s swimwear called the Andy.  Brownnose much? Kyle says she doesn’t want an enemy, and doesn’t like having bad feelings about someone she cares about.

In LVP’s interview, she says between opening a new restaurant, her personal issues, and the screw up with her friends, she’s had a lot to deal with. She feels like she’s in a different place. Out with the old, and in with the new. We read that LVP has many crowns to wear, but says her favorite times are at home with her dogs. Which is why I love her. She still hasn’t made amends with her friends.

Kyle says her girlfriends are beautiful, talented, and successful. She couldn’t be happier. In her interview, she says she was afraid to be honest and speak her truth with LVP, since she knew the outcome wouldn’t be good. But ultimately, she feels like she did the right thing. She grew as a person. Hopefully, for the better. She tells the women, instead of saying, I have to, say, I get to, and everyone tries it with crap they don’t want to do. Kyle’s ending says that she’s still waiting to give LVP her birthday present. She’s also working on some new TV projects, which she hopes don’t cause conflict with her sisters.

The women clink glasses, and LisaR says, the best is yet to come. Maybe so, but I don’t think I’ll be watching.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Jax calls Carly from his new office, thanking her for how quickly it was done. She’s glad he likes it, since she gave her input on a few things. His 55 Porsche was just delivered, and he asks if he can take her out to lunch. She says she’s in the middle of something, and he asks if everything is okay. She says, everything is fine, but I don’t think he’s buying it.

Scotty sees Ava at the MetroCourt. She says she’s headed to Aurora. She’s giving Crimson and explicit interview and photo shoot. She’s going to be on the cover. He hopes they don’t do a hatchet job. She says Jax promised she could tell her side of the story, and she’s hopeful it will be cathartic. He’s glad she’s getting back on track. She says she is. She has more to accomplish to end the hell she’s living in. She tells him that her legal affairs are in order, but he says he’s not there as a lawyer. She says it means so much that he cares, but she doesn’t need a friend either. He says maybe he does.

At the hospital, Bobbie tells Epiphany that she worked out the conflicts, and she’s fully staffed. Epiphany thanks her, and Bobbie thanks Epiphany for helping her with her diagnosis. She found some excellent resources, and is going to be proactive in dealing with her diabetes. She hopes she does half as well as Epiphany has. Epiphany hopes she does better.

Elizabeth shows up at the art therapy room, where Franco is working on a painting. He pushes her back out, telling her, go away. She can’t be there.

On the phone at Charlie’s, Finn asks Anna how the search is going. He tells her, the WSB let Alex escape; shouldn’t they find her? He understands. It’s her sister; it’s her problem. He says Jordan is doing well. She’s having breakfast there right now. We see Jordan at a table with Stella, TJ, and Curtis.

Jordan can’t remember the last time she lingered over breakfast. If things were normal, she’d be at the station. Stella says she should take advantage of the time off, but Jordan wishes she was back at work. Finn stops by, and says in his humble medical opinion, she has everything she needs right there.

Carly tells Sonny she’s been doing research. She’s learning everything she can about spina bifida. A C-section is performed to prevent infection or nerve damage. Sonny says she doesn’t have to do this right now. She says, the more they know, the better they’ll be prepared. She wonders if their baby is born with a defect, can they handle it? He says it would have to be a reality first, but he knows they can handle it. They have the money, the resources, and the support system. They can do this. She says she hears him, and she’s’ grateful, but the reality is that it’s not a month or a week; it’s a lifetime. She’s not sure if she’s strong enough to face it and give the baby what it needs.

Chase thinks it’s good that Jordan is back in circulation, and Curtis says, don’t think she’s returning to work yet. Chase says the new guy has a lot to learn, but he’s bringing Mac along. Jordan says he has plenty of experience, and Curtis says Mac is doing a good job. Now he needs to get to his new job at Aurora. He tells Jordan to make sure she gets some rest, and stay clear of the PCPD. He’s looking good in a suit, and she tells him, make sure his co-workers know he’s married. Stella says she’s proud he’s stepping up, and he says she raised him that way. Finn and Chase leave, and Jordan says she’s glad they figured out how to be brothers. Stella says, they’re good people. Jordan says Chase is her best detective, and she owes her life to Finn. Stella says it won’t be long before they have their own doctor in the family. TJ is like, um… and she asks, what’s wrong? He says he’s been doing some thinking, and he’s not going back to med school this fall.

Finn and Chase sit at a booth. Finn says it sounded urgent, and Chase looks stressed. Chase wants Finn to talk him down before he breaks his girlfriend out of lock-up.

Ava asks Scotty, what’s wrong? and Scotty says he’s feeling lost after Gail’s passing. The scavenger hunt was supposed to make them feel her presence, but for him, it did the opposite. He should have visited her more, but knowing there if needed her… Ava asks if they can find a better time to talk, and he says, she, of all people, should understand. She says she does. He’s suffered a terrible loss, and doesn’t find life satisfying. He’s in the throes of a midlife crisis. It’s normal and predictable. She knows exactly what he needs. Scotty says he’s been waiting… She says he needs to do something for himself; something totally self-indulgent – a red Ferrari. He spends his time worrying about others, and no time having fun. Scotty says, that’s really not… and she says they’ll talk tomorrow, or the next day, and jets.

Franco tells Elizabeth, that came out wrong. He’s always happy see her, but inspiration is fleeting. Elizabeth says he’s really wired, and asks what he’s working on. He doesn’t want to show her, and asks if she let everyone know about the venue change. She assures him that she sent out the information. They’ll replace a horrible memory with a lovely memory, and be glad that their family and friends are there. He says he needs to spend time with his hot, sexy nurse, but she says the honeymoon will be over before the reception is even started. He kisses her. She leaves, and he makes a call, asking how soon someone can get there.

Ava goes to Jax’s office. He asks what outrageous demands is she there for? A personal masseuse from Sweden? While she thinks that’s a fine idea, she’s there to discuss the cover story. He says, it’s pretty straightforward. They pick the questions, and she answers them. She says, the interview is off. He says she signed a contract. She can’t back out. She says she has no intention of backing out. What’s good for Aurora is good for her. She wants to reschedule, since she has a pressing engagement that she can’t put off. He says the only pressing engagement is to get Crimson on the street. An alarm goes off, and Curtis walks in. He thought Jax was away. He’s testing a new security system. Don’t mind him. He’s testing the sensors, and then doing an investigation. Ava tells Jax that she intends to fulfill her obligation, but not today. Something unexpected came up. He says she can’t walk out at the last minute. The alarm goes off again.

Jordan says she thought TJ loved school; he’s at the top of his class. He says he’ll finish eventually, and Stella tells him, define eventually. He says he was talking to a headhunter. There are a lot of jobs in the medical field out there, and he intends toed pay own way. Jordan asks if he’s giving up school so she can pay her medical bills. She has two words – not happening.

Finn says Chase is planning a jailbreak? What did the schoolmarm do now? Not pay a parking ticket? Chase says she refused to disclose her child’s whereabouts, and was jailed for contempt. Finn says he’s sorry. Chase didn’t tell him that Willow had a child. Chase says, it’s not his story to tell. Now it’s a matter of public record. Willow had a son who she gave up at birth. Finn takes it the father is the abusive ex, and Chase says, he wants custody. Finn supposes he has rights, but Chase says, he shouldn’t be in the same room. He believes in the system, but in this case, the system failed.

Scotty goes to the art therapy room, and Franco says he was looking for him. He has a surprise for Elizabeth. He shows Scotty the painting, and Scotty is sure she’ll like it. Franco says, it’s kind of a mess; love will do that to you. Scotty says he wouldn’t know. Franco wants to make sure Scotty is at his wedding, and tells him to feel free to bring a plus one. Scotty says, that would be difficult. He’s minus one and counting.

Elizabeth asks Bobbie if she knows about the change of venue for the wedding. She’s counting on Bobbie and Epiphany being there. Bobbie says she’ll do her best, and Epiphany says it will do her good. Elizabeth asks if there’s something wrong with a patient. Bobbie says, yes and no. The patient is her. She tested positive for type two diabetes.

Carly apologizes, telling Sonny that she’s just trying to be realistic. If the condition is severe, it will be so much more to perform basic tasks. Sonny says she’s going to the worst case. The doctor said not to jump to conclusions. Carly asks what they do until then, and he says, don’t look on the internet. It’s full of frightening possibilities, and their situation is probably not any of them.

TJ says, medical school can wait. He’s not giving up. There are lots of openings, and when he has enough money… Jordan says, absolutely not, and Stella says there are many gifted people out there to fill those jobs, but they’re in desperate need for doctors who have the calling he does. Jordan says she’ll be returning to work soon, Curtis has the new job, and the medical bills will get paid. Stella says, there’s no quitting this thing. Starting now, Dr. Ashford.

Chase tells Finn, it kills him to see Willow behind bars when that SOB is running around free. Finn says Anna would have more insight, but she’s searching for Alex. She’s a fugitive, and Anna wants to be the one to bring her in. Chase gets it. It’s a sibling thing. Finn says the last time she went on a solo mission, she didn’t come back.

Franco asks Scotty what the problem is, and Scotty says he wants companionship. It’s easy to go to a bar and make conversation, have dinner. His trips to Vegas were all smoke and mirrors; they mean nothing. He wants what Franco has; Elizabeth and the kids. Franco asks if he wants Cameron now, and Scotty says, forget kids. What he wants is a girl who can knock back a couple of martinis. Someone who knows who Dirty Harry is; who Deborah Harry is. Someone who can quote a line from Jaws. Is that too much to ask? Franco doesn’t know why Scotty is talking to him. It sounds like he should talk to Ava.

Ava tells Jax the meeting is vital. What difference does it make if they reschedule? He says she runs a gallery. She must realize the preparation involved. He arranged for Sydney Val Jean, the New York editor of Crimson, to conduct the interview. She asks what kind of interview he’s going to get if she’s forced to be there. He asks Curtis, how much longer? and Curtis says, forty minutes to an hour. He wants to give his personal attention to Jax’s office. Ava says she left something in the restaurant, and has to go. Jax says he’ll ride with her. Curtis closes the door behind them, and begins looking around.

Carly knows Sonny is right. All those times they applauded the kids in the Special Olympics and their parents; this time it’s them, their kid, their family. She knows they’ve faced health issues with the kids before, and knows they can face this. Carly puts her head in her hands, and Sonny says they can. They just have to be honest about what they’re getting themselves into. There might be nights and days they can’t give their child 100% of what they need. Carly thinks he’s forgetting something else. How much they need this child, and how much this special child is going to give them.

Scotty tells Franco, there was a time he thought he and Ava had something, but it didn’t work out. They’re still friends. She thinks he should get a Ferrari. Franco says, classic red, and Scotty says he’s not having a cliché midlife crises. If he was going to do that, he’d be dating go-go girls. He wants to feel needed, like when Bobbie fainted. She collapsed, and he got her to the hospital. It felt good, like he was there for her. Franco says it sounds like Scotty needs to get out of the fast lane, and find someone to share an RV, who knows the words to the songs he knows, and is comfortable on the back sideroads he likes to take. Scotty says maybe he should date the voice of his GPS. Franco tells him, stay open to possibility. Life is full of surprises.

Elizabeth says good thing Bobbie saw Lucas. Bobbie says he wouldn’t let her convince him it was no big deal. Epiphany says, they’re nurses, and it’s easy to be dismissive of the tell-tale signs in themselves. Bobbie says, looking back, she was in denial, but not anymore. She doesn’t want to put her heart at risk or have another episode like yesterday. She saw Lucas and Brad with her grandson, and it’s all the reminder she needed to make her want to stick around for her family. Elizabeth says, and for them. She’s irreplaceable.

Stella says she promised Curtis she would get Jordan home to rest. She tells TJ to call the headhunter back. He’s staying in med school. Jordan tells TJ, neither one of them has a choice. Stella says, accept your fate. She looks at her phone, and says she’s got a message from the genealogy website. TJ asks if she’s checking her ancestry, and she says it occurred to her that she wanted to know her relatives.

Finn tells Chase that he and Anna talk every day. He’ll never trust a digital message again. Chase says after Finn got the bogus texts, he went off to find her. Finn says he was forced to wake up Cassandra. He never wants to go through that again, and Cassandra is still out there. Chase says he and Robert teamed up to rescue them, but Finn says, by that point, they rescued themselves, but he’s not going to argue.

Curtis talks to himself, saying, Jax keeps information on business allies. He looks through some folders. He pulls one out, and says, interesting read. The label says, Valentin Cassadine. He sees a folder for Cassandra Pierce, and says, what have we here?

Ava tells Jax that she promises to make it up to him for the inconvenience. He’ll get the interview of a lifetime, and so will his readers. She’ll tell them everything they want to know. He says she’ll have to reach for a better excuse for breaching the contract. She says, if he must know, she’s meeting her late daughter, with the help of a psychic. They’re completely legit. She got the idea from his daughter. Jax says, Josslyn? Ava says, Josslyn had a séance, and reached out to Oscar. She was convinced he reached back. People do make contact. He asks if there’s no other time, and she says she’s committed to the Crimson deal; it’s not off. He tells her, don’t be so sure, and she asks which he would rather have, a lawsuit or a cover interview? He says, she has him there. He’ll let her reschedule once, but if she tries it again, she’ll see him in court.

Elizabeth asks Franco if she’s interrupting again, and he kisses her. She says, whatever he’s working on, don’t stop. Franco asks if she ever stops and thinks how lucky they are. Some people live their whole lives without what they have; the feelings, and really seeing each other and not being scared. Elizabeth says she was thinking the same thing about Bobbie. She’s going through a tough time, and is going to need all their love and support.

Bobbie sees Scotty riding a scooter in the hospital (see link below for the explanation). She thanks him again for his help, and he says, that’s what friends are for. She says she’s going to need all the friends she can get. He says he kind of overheard Lucas talking to her. It’s not just about missing a meal, is it? Bobbie explains that she has type two diabetes. It puts her at risk for a stroke, heart attack, and other fun ways to go. She has to learn to live healthier. She wants to stick around. Scotty says it has silver lining. She doesn’t have to face it by herself.

Jordan asks if Stella got a potential DNA match, and Stella says they say that to drum up business. TJ says, not necessarily, but you have to pay for a follow-up. You can learn more about your background. Stella says she’s more concerned about where she’s going, not where she’s from. TJ says, what if it’s someone famous, but she doesn’t care if it’s Cleopatra. In their family, DNA means do not argue.

Chase wonders how Finn got stuck being involved in a criminal enterprise that had shady associates like Valentin Cassadine.

Curtis photographs Valentin’s folder. He hears Jax coming, and puts everything back. Jax walks in, and asks what he’s doing.

Bobbie tells Scotty that she’s feeling better, but Scotty says he’s not just there for moral support. She says, it’s too late for breakfast and too early for lunch. She has to do homework about what foods she should eat. Scotty says she doesn’t have to do anything alone. She says that’s sweet, but she has to go. He says, there was a time when they were more than friends. Maybe they can recapture that again in an RV, going down the highway of life. There will be holes and flat tires, but all she has to do is say yes. He’d get down on one knee, but he already is. Will she marry him?

Elizabeth wants to look at Franco’s new painting, but he stops her, saying she can’t see it. She says he’s in a good mood, and he says the first time they were supposed to get married, there was an earthquake. Then the next time, he was behind bars. The third time’s the charm. They’re finally getting their happy ending. She says they get to live their happily ever after.

Someone books a flight from Paris to Port Charles. Cassandra?

TJ encourages Stella to follow up on the genealogy. He says it’s fascinating what you can find.

Chase tells Finn that he knows he’s walking a tightrope between duty and his feelings. Finn knows it well. It’s not easy for him to balance life between the Hippocratic Oath, and life with an ex-WSB agent. They tell each other, good luck, and Chase leaves

Jax asks if Curtis found any breaches in security. Curtis says, there are a few blind spots in surveillance that he’ll need to eliminate. He’s thinking motion sensors. Jax says, he’s the expert. Whatever he thinks. Curtis says he’s putting together a proposal of the changes he wants to make. Jax will have an overall picture tomorrow. Curtis leaves, and breathes a sigh of relief when he gets out in the hallway.

On the phone, Ava says she’s running late, but they’d know that since they’re a psychic. Yeah, sorry. They probably do hear it all the time. She’s nervous, but she’s taking this seriously; she promises. She’ll come prepared. She takes a picture of Kiki out of her bag.

Carly tells Sonny, it’s like the like situation with Mike. It was a lot on them. Sonny says, there’s so much joy and love he’s given them. Carly says Sonny found Mike after all these years. Sonny says there’s been laughter and tears, and it pisses him off. He didn’t know Alzheimer’s would take away Mike’s defenses, and he’d see who Mike is underneath. He’s a good man with a big heart who loves his family. Carly says she loves him a lot, and Sonny says he wouldn’t trade Mike for anything. Like he wouldn’t trade what they had with Morgan. Carly says, at times, it might be heartbreaking, but this child isn’t a mistake or a statistic. It’s a gift. She has to believe that there’s a reason they’re having this baby, even if they don’t know what it is. They’ll believe in it together. No matter what. Sonny takes her hand, and says, no matter what. She says she loves him, and they kiss. She says she’s scared, and he says, so is he.

Tomorrow, Neil says he can no longer treat Alexis, Scotty suggests he and Bobbie get hitched, and Sonny tells someone they know what happens to people who double-cross him.

The Haves and The Have Nots

Jeffrey changes David’s bandages. He says he’s not as good as Madison. David should have him come back. He’s not a nurse. David says he’s fine, but Jeffrey says it wasn’t Madison’s fault; it was his, so let him come back. Jeffrey offers to call, and David says, tomorrow. He says Madison seems to like Jeffrey. Does Jeffrey like him? Jeffrey says, he’s okay, and David says he’d rather see Jeffrey with somebody like Madison than that punk. Jeffrey says, mom took care of that. She had him beaten and raped. He tells David not to act like he feels sorry. David says he doesn’t, but Jeffrey says, Justin is still a human being. David says Justin hit Jeffrey’s mother, and she felt the need to teach him a lesson. Jeffrey says she almost had Justin killed. What does David think she’s going to do to him? She’s ruthless. David knows. Jeffrey asks if he’s ready, and David says he made a few stops. Veronica’s gang busts in.

David tells Jeffrey, on the floor, and Jeffrey pulls a gun out from under the bed. David pulls guns out of every conceivable place. About ten guys are in the house, and they shoot back and forth. Veronica waits outside in her black leather, and says, that’ll teach you to try to kill me. You won’t be killing anyone else any time soon, sweetheart, you son of a bitch. She crunches out her cigarette with her boot, and walks into the darkness.

Mitch goes to the Cryer house, and asks if Jim has the package. Jim tells him, hang on. Wyatt come down, and Mitch tells him that it’s his lucky day, and to kiss his father for this. Jim gives Mitch an envelope. Mitch says, $75K? and Jim says, as requested. Mitch says, good man. Jim wants to confirm that nobody is going to try to kill his son. Mitch says as soon as he gets the money to his uncle. Jim asks how he’ll know the job is done, and Mitch tells him, because he said so. They shake, and Mitch suggest he get that son of his some help. Jim thanks him. After Mitch leaves, Wyatt asks if he heard right. Jim paid Mitch $75K? That’s a lot for $5K of coke. Jim says Wyatt had a special problem, and it took a lot of money to fix it. Wyatt says he’ll get the money back when Jim dies. Jim asks if Wyatt thinks he’s in Jim’s will. Wyatt says, and mom’s, and Jim says Wyatt will probably die before they do at the rate he’s going. Wyatt doubts that. He asks if he can go out, and Jim says, tomorrow he’s hauling Wyatt’s ass upstate and into rehab, and he’s staying there. Wyatt is going if Jim has to drag him by the balls. Wyatt smiles, and Jim tells him, go to his room. Wyatt says he’s an adult, and Jim says, act like one. Wyatt pats Jim’s face, and goes upstairs. slamming the door to his bedroom.

Still in bed, Broderick asks where Kathryn is going. She says she has to go home. She wishes she could stay. He asks if it’s her husband, but she says she’s not worried about him. He says, then stay, and she says she can’t. She likes him. He says he likes her too, and she asks, why? He says she’s beautiful, sexy, amazingly smart… Kathryn interjects, and rich? and he says, it doesn’t hurt. She asks if he’d like her if she was broke. He asks if she’d be this loving and kind if she was broke, and she says, yes. He says, then yes; he would. She says she’ll be back tomorrow, and he says he’ll wait right there. She says, in this bed, looking like that? and he says, yep. I hope he gets out of bed to go to the bathroom. They kiss, and she extracts herself, saying, she’s leaving. He thanks her.

Veronica goes to the hospital to visit Justin. She finds his room, and says, damn, girl. He tells her, get out of here, but she says she just wanted to sit with him, and check on her handiwork. She likes it. He tells her, get out, and she says, or…? Is he going to hit her? He says she’s wicked, and she admits she is. She just wanted him to know that wasn’t official. There’s so much more to come. He says, please, and she says, the girl begs. He says, he’s sorry; he’ll leave Jeffrey alone. She says, that part was supposed to come before. He says he’s gone through a lot. Please. She says, please what? Does it hurt? She knows what they did because they did what she told them to. Justin says again that he’s sorry. She tells him, repeat after her, I’m sorry for hitting the queen. She’s not talking Jeffrey, but herself. Justin keeps repeating, I’m sorry, and she tells him, stop begging. He sounds like a little bitch. He says she ruined hi life, and she says he ruined his own life. He wouldn’t leave her son alone. Justin says he was just trying to love Jeffrey, and Veronica says, sick sh*t. It will get him hurt again. She can’t wait for him to taste what’s coming. She touches his face, then wipes her hand on his hospital gown. She’s going to let him heal up before the second round. She grabs his face, and says, next time he thinks about hitting a real bad bitch, think again.

Madison comes in, and asks what she’s doing. She says visiting a sick friend, but Madison says Justin isn’t her friend. She says, all queens are her friends. Justin says he asked her to leave, and Veronica asks if he likes Madison now. Get together, and leave her son alone. Madison says he’s asking her again, get out of here. In the hallway, she tells him to get fillers. He’s looking old. Older than her, and she’s twice his age. She says, goodbye, girl, and saunters off. Madison goes back, and asks Justin if he’s okay. Justin says, no; she’s going to kill him. Madison says he’ll let security know. Justin says he knows Madison hates him. He has every right to, but Justin just loves Jeffrey. He’s so sorry for what he did to Madison. He’ll never understand what Justin is going through. He lost everything because of Jeffrey. Madison is sure it’s hard, but Justin had no right to do what he did. Justin apologizes again, and Madison says, okay. Justin asks if Madison can stay for a while. Madison says he’s fine. Justin pleads with Madison, but he closes the door. Alone, Justin says he’s just misunderstood.

RK calls to Wyatt, and throws rocks at the window. Wyatt comes out on the balcony, and RK tells him, throw down the earrings. Wyatt does, and RK says, damn nice. He throws the package of coke up to Wyatt, who makes another great catch. Wyatt says, what the hell? They’re getting smaller and smaller. RK says if he’d throw money down instead of damn jewelry… Jim comes out and asks what Wyatt is doing out there. He sees RK, and asks, what’s going on? RK says he left something in the car. Jim says he’s coming down, and Wyatt tells RK to go. RK says he’s not scared; he’s a blackbelt in karate. He’s got this. Jim comes out, and tells RK, remind him again why he’s there. RK repeats that he left something in the car. Jim asks if he brought something to his son. RK says he was in the neighborhood, and was saying hi to Wyatt. Jim says he’s lying. What’s in his hand? RK shows Jim the earrings, and Jim asks if Wyatt gave those to him. RK asks if he can’t have ten carat earrings, and Jim says twenty carat; he paid for them himself. Wyatt yells down that RK stole them, and Jim says, call the cops. RK says, go ahead. Wyatt has coke in his room. Wyatt says he’ll say RK stole the earrings. Jim says it’s a fact that RK brought drugs to his son. RK says it’s a fact that Wyatt wanted him to bring drugs. Jim says if RK ever brings his son drugs again, he’ll have him murdered. RK says, fair enough, and Jim says, get the hell out.

Kathryn pulls into the driveway. She sees RK leaving, and asks, what was that about? Jim asks where she’s been, and she says, out with her men. Jim goes inside, and she runs in behind him.

Wyatt sits in his room. Jim asks, where is it? Wyatt says he doesn’t have any drugs. Kathryn comes in, and asks, what’s going on? Jim tells her, check her jewelry cabinet. Wyatt has been trading her jewelry for drugs. Wyatt says Jim shouldn’t have taken his money. Jim pushes Wyatt. Kathryn tries to intervene, and gets pushed back by Wyatt. Wyatt and Jim get in a mini shoving match, and Jim says, don’t touch his mother. He tells Wyatt, sit. For once, do what he’s asking. In the hallway, Jim tells Kathryn, calm down. Does she see what he’s dealing with? Because if she had been a better mother, he wouldn’t have to deal with this sh*t. She says if he doesn’t get out of her face, she’ll push him off the balcony. He asks her to please check and see how much jewelry she’s missing.

Wyatt hears them go down the hall, and gets the coke out from under his mattress. He goes into the bathroom.

Hanna, Benny, and Candace clear the table after dinner. There’s a knock at the door. Hanna says, if it’s Derrick, don’t let him in. Benny asks what he did, and she says, just do it. He says, she’s not telling him, is she? It’s Mitch at the door, and Benny goes outside. Mitch says Benny owes him. Benny says, what? and Mitch says, his damn life. He got the money; Jim paid him off. Benny asks what Mitch is talking about, and Mitch says he’s got the money in the car. Benny asks how he did it, and Mitch says, don’t worry; he’s got it. Benny owes him. They bro hug, and Mitch says Benny is the only family he trusts.

Candace asks Hanna what Derrick did, but Hanna says she doesn’t want to talk about it. Candace knows the feeling. Hanna hopes she doesn’t. Candace says, they’re all dogs. Hanna says, not all of them. That would include her brother. Candace says they take your heart, play with it, make you fall for them, and then they dump you. Hanna says, that’s not what happened. Candace says Hanna liked him more than she’s liked anyone in years. Hanna asks how she knew that, and Candace says she can tell. She’s Hanna’s daughter, and knows her. Charles told her that he wanted to be there for her. They stayed in D.C., and he took her to the White House. It made her feel special. Hanna says, he raped her.

Candace says, this is the second time it happened to Hanna? It happened a lot to Candace, since she was seven. Hanna says it was her first time. Candace says didn’t Hanna say Candace’s father raped her? Hanna says, yes, and Candace says she doesn’t understand. Hanna says, he’s the man who did it. Derrick is her father. She had no idea until she saw the tattoo on his chest. She says Candace can’t tell Benny, and Candace says, okay. Hanna says Derrick didn’t remember her. He went to jail, got hooked on drugs, got out, got clean, and changed his whole life around, but he didn’t remember her face. Candace says that was her father? and Hanna says, yes. She says she’s sorry, and Candace asks what she’s sorry for. Hanna says she didn’t know all that stuff was happening to Candace. Candace says it made her stronger. Hanna says, it made her evil. She’s not trying to go there; she’s just saying. It made Candace evil to every man. Candace says she could get them before they got her. It worked until she gave her heart.

Mitch tells Benny that he got it done, and Benny says, it’s a load off. Mitch has to get the money back to his uncle, and end this. He saw the news about Candace. Benny says, she’s inside, and Mitch asks if he can say hi real quick, but Benny doesn’t think she’s up for it. Mitch says he’ll give Benny a shout when it’s handled. Tell Candace to keep her head up. Benny goes back inside. Hanna tells Candace, don’t say nothin’.

Benny asks, what’s wrong? and Hanna says they were just talking about women’s issues. Benny’s not buying it, and Candace asks if he has anything for cramps. She’s on her period. He doesn’t know what he walked in on, but Mitch took care of the issue with his uncle. Hanna says they just have to give Jim back the money, and it will all be over. Candace says, yes, it will. Hanna says, it’s a great start, and Candace says, amen. Hanna has to get up early. She’s got a job offer, and she’s starting at the Artisian. She goes upstairs.

Benny says they were talking about that dude, and Candace says, no. They were talking about periods. He says he’s got it. He thinks Candace should keep the money, but she says, no. He says, it’s $8 million, but she says, it’s not worth it. He says, keep it, and she says, do what with it? He says it’s enough that she’ll never have to look back, and Candace says, just over her shoulder. What about Jim? He’ll come after Benny. Benny says he can handle Jim’s bitch ass; keep the money. She says she can’t. She’s done. He says if he wakes up in the morning, and she’s gone, he won’t blame her. He washes the dishes, and says he loves her. She loves him too.

Mitch goes to the Iron Bone. He says he has something for Vinnie. Fifty G’s for the Cryer kid. Vinnie says, he got it? He laughs, and says Mitch did good. Mitch appreciates that, and now Vinnie can call off whoever. Vinnie tells dude whose name I don’t know to get Will on the phone. They’re calling it off. Dude can’t believe it, and Mitch says he got that done. There’s something else. He slides another stack of bills over to Vinnie, and says, that, my friends is twenty G’s for Benny. He got that done too. Now call it off. Vinnie says Benny owes him five grand for being late. Mitch slides yet one more stack across the table, and says, that, my friends, is five grand. Vinnie sniffs the money, and asks where the kid got the money. Mitch says, good question. He doesn’t know. Vinnie says he’s been thinking he wants more, but Mitch says, ask again, and he’s calling Mama Rose. Don’t get greedy. He’s got the money; call it off. Vinnie says, all right, and dude dials. He tells Will that the Cryer kid and Black kid – Mitch says, Benny Young – it’s called off. Vinnie says, it’s done. Mitch has to get going. Vinnie asks if he doesn’t want his cut, but Mitch says, no. Vinnie says, it’s family money. Mitch says he’s good; keep it. Dude says he can’t keep running from the family. Mitch says they keep trying to pull him back in, but it ain’t gonna happen. He tells Vinnie to keep the envelope for his bank. Vinnie says he’ll be there waiting. Dude says, for Mitch and his raggedy ass car. Mitch says, one day he’ll buy a new one with his own money. Vinnie says he’ll be back. Dude says he’d better be. Well, he seems to be the only one not just hanging around the bar all day.

Jim discusses something financial on the phone. Kathryn is getting ready for a bath, when Derrick calls. Kathryn says she didn’t know he’d raped someone, and asks if it was only one. He says, yes. In his bedroom, Wyatt takes out the gun. Kathryn asks Derrick, why he did it, and he says he was high. He’s sick about it. Saying how sorry he is doesn’t help. She says he’s Candace’s father, and he says, oh my God. She says she’s sorry. She thought Hanna told him.

Wyatt approaches Jim from behind. Jim is telling someone they have to stay cool and collected. Where is she? Wyatt cocks the gun. Jim turns around, and says, what the hell?  Wyatt calls him a son of a bitch, and Jim yells, stop! but Wyatt shoots him, and he drops to the floor. Kathryn hears the shot, and says, what the hell was that? She runs out and part way downstairs. She sees Wyatt with the gun, and calls for Jim. Wyatt starts to head upstairs, and she runs. He cocks the gun. She stumbles, but keeps going. She runs into the bathroom and cowers, asking him, please. He shoots her, and she falls into the tub.

We hear sirens. George’s car pulls up to the Cryer’s house, followed by a squad car. George gets out, along with a couple of cops. Wyatt comes out on the porch, and George asks where are his parents? Wyatt says, dead. He brings the gun out from behind his back and holds it in the air. They shoot him.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Nina welcomes Drew back. She asks if he’s got a second. She wants to tell him what’s going on around there. He asks her to be specific, and she says she would have appreciated a heads up that he was selling Aurora. He tells her not to take it personally. He didn’t consult any employees. She says he knows how much Crimson means to her. When she was introduced to Jax, she thought he was a great guy, and someone she could work with. Jax stands in the doorway, but her back is to him. She tells Drew, he sabotaged her with the first project. Maybe not he’s not such a great guy, and just pretending. He said he wanted to build Crimson up, but maybe what he really wanted was a tax write-off. She’s asking why he sold her beloved magazine to a playboy who buys and sells companies like vintage handbags. Jax says that’s the first time he’s heard that metaphor.

At the MetroCourt, Curtis tells Valentin that his background check cleared. He’s starting today. Valentin wants to know everything, and says, no detail is too small. Curtis says Jax pleaded nolo contendere to an FCC violation, and it cost him millions. He took a plea so his brother and father could walk. He had to take a loss, but after five years, ended up back on top. Valentin wonders what corners he cut.

Sasha leaves Michael a message. She guesses his project is keeping him busy. She hopes he can make it tonight.

Michael meets Sonny and Carly at the hospital. He apologizes for being late, and says, it’s been a wild 24 hours. Carly asks what he and Jason got into in Beecher’s Corners. He says, it’s a long story. Jason got arrested, and he helped break him out. Carly says, he helped break Jason out of jail? Michael says he looked like an innocent bystander. Don’t worry. Carly says she is, and Sonny says, what the hell? Michael says it was bad timing, but they did find a witness. Carol Lockhart confirmed that Shiloh is a murderer.

Shiloh tells Kim that Oscar spoke often about her. What kind of woman she is; strong, fierce, and loving. Kim says Oscar was angry at her when he was living at the DOD house. Shiloh says, love and anger are different sides of the same coin. It shows how much he loved her that it was shining through in the midst of their difficulties. He knows her loss is immeasurable, and he’s sorry. She says, Oscar’s not lost. She feels him, but it’s not enough. She wants him back for real, and she knows how, but nobody wants to help her. Will he help bring Oscar back? He takes her hands, and says, of course (🍷). He’d do anything to help her. She says she needs to be mother. She tried to explain to Drew, but he didn’t understand. She can’t do it alone, and wants help. He says he needs her to say the words. She wants him to father a child with her?

In the interrogation room, Willow doubts any prisoner get chamomile tea before lights out, and Chase says she’s a special case. The judge might be completely misguided, but he thinks he’s doing the right thing. She asks if Chase thinks she should cooperate, and he says he thinks there’s a better way to protect Wiley than sitting in a jail cell.

Lucas tells Brad that Bobbie thanks them for giving her Wiley this evening. It gives her incentive to manage her treatment. Brad says, it’s the magic touch. Lucas says Alexis called, and asks why Brad didn’t tell him that he’d talked to her. Brad says Lucas had so much going on with his mom’s diagnosis, and he didn’t know how to tell him that her strategy is to reveal Wiley is Shiloh’s son. Lucas says it makes sense, but Brad says as soon as they admit it, Shiloh can claim him. Lucas says, then the case will be judged on their merits. Getting out in front of it is their best chance of retaining Wiley. Brad says, Alexis is wrong, and thinks they should take Wiley and run. Pack the car, get the hell out of Port Charles, and never look back.

Michael tells Sonny and Carly, when Shiloh was arrested, he had Carol brought to him, and convinced her to make a false confession. She had nothing to do with his death. Michael’s phone dings, and he says, dammit. He had dinner plans with Sasha. Carly says, go. It sounds like he could use a night out. He tells them, good luck, and leaves. Sonny says he’s texting Brick about following up on his plans for Dev. Some steps need to be taken before he can become a citizen. Carly wants to know what’s going on, but Dr. Navarro is ready. They go into the examining room.

Kim says she’s giving Shiloh the wrong idea. She appreciates his support, and that he’d be willing to go that far, but she wants a baby that’s part her and part Drew, like Oscar. Shiloh says obviously he can’t help her on that front. She says she could use some guidance. After Oscar died, she read all his DOD literature, and the notes he took. Some of the classes caught her attention. He asks which classes? and she says the ones on persuasive arguments, and how to get through on a spiritual level. Can he teach her how to get through to Drew? He asks if she wants him to teach her how to persuade Drew to have another child with her. She wants Drew to understand the importance of it. She already suggested it, but he doesn’t remember loving her. What they had is lost. It’s on the flashdrive with Drew’s other memories. Shiloh says she and Drew don’t have a relationship. Is she in a relationship with anyone else? She says she’s seeing Julian, but he turned her down before she realized Drew has to be the father. Julian has a lot on his mind anyway. He has some custody issue going on with his son.

Brad says, Seattle, Nashville, Chicago; it’s up to Lucas. Lucas says, no. This is crazy. Running isn’t an option. Brad says they have every right to move, and no obligation to stay. Lucas says, so they pack up and move to North Dakota. The suit will still proceed, and when the truth comes out, it will be assumed they knew Shiloh didn’t give his permission. They’ll be culpable. They’ll be fugitives, and if they’re caught, there’s no way they’ll keep their son. Brad says Lucas’s brother-in-law is an expert at making people disappear. Sonny can help. Lucas says, if they disappear, they and Wiley can never contact their family again. Is that what he wants for their child?

Willow asks if Chase thinks the only way to protect Wiley is to tell Shiloh the baby is his. Chase says she has more agency than she realizes. She can convince the judge that Shiloh is a threat to Wiley’s well-being. She says it will give Shiloh legal claim to Wiley. The only way to protect him is to not disclose Shiloh is his father. Chase says she’ll be in contempt of court. She says she is already, and he asks how much longer she thinks she can keep this up. She says as long as she has to, even if it’s the rest of her life.

Nina says it’s convenient Jax is there, and he asks, how’s that? She says instead of expressing her concerns to Drew, she should be expressing her concerns to the source. He asks if that’s what she was doing, expressing her concerns? It sounded a bit disparaging. Maybe something was lost in the translation. Drew says he’d like to help, but whatever dispute they have, it’s not his business. The terms of the sale are clear. Jax says he’s the sole owner of the print division, and Drew is the sole owner of the TV, radio, and streaming platforms. While they’re under the same umbrella, they operate independently. Drew says, sorry. Nina doesn’t work for him. She works for Jax.

Curtis says he still has paperwork to fill out, and Valentin doesn’t want to keep him. Next time, he wants something viable. Curtis says he can’t give him anything if nothing is there, but Valentin is sure he’ll find plenty. Curtis leaves, and Valentin approaches Sasha’s table. He asks if the seat is taken, and she says, it will be soon. He says he’ll warm it up. He’s been wanting to connect. Sasha says, about…? He tells her, the wedding is in September in Verona, and she says, like Romeo and Juliet. He says after the wedding, she’s free to go home to Chappaqua. She says, there’s been a change of plans. She’s decided to make Port Charles her home for good.

Michael comes to the interrogation room, and says he’s glad both Willow and Chase are there. He’s not glad Willow is in custody, but he wanted to talk to them both. He asks Willow how much she told Chase about her father, and she says, he knows everything. Her father intentionally OD’s because she chose her initiation ceremony over him. Michael says, that’s not what happened. She says she knows he’s being kind, but takes full responsibility. She came to terms with it a long time ago. Michael says her father didn’t commit suicide. He’s sorry tell her, but her father was murdered.

Dr. Navarro comes into the examining room, and asks if Carly or Sonny have any questions or concerns. Carly says they’re just ready to see how the baby is doing. Sonny asks if she thinks there are any complications. She says the protein levels can signify a number of things, but most are benign or manageable. She does a sonogram, and says, the baby is approximately twelve inches long, and… Sonny asks if everything is all right. She says she needs to consult with a colleague. She tells Carly to get dressed, and she’ll be back. Carly asks if something is wrong with the baby, but the doctor says she can’t give Carly a prognosis until she has a consult.

Jax says Nina was a major factor in his decision to buy Aurora. Nina says she thought he wanted to stay in Port Charles because of his daughter. He says she’ll always be his first consideration, but when he assesses a potential investment property, he looks at both the property and the personnel, and he wanted to keep her. He respects her opinion, but wants to make it clear, it’s his magazine. Nina says if he wants his magazine to be better, he needs to give her plenty of room. He says she’s putting Ava on the cover. How much room does she need? Nina says she hates Ava, but it will give the magazine a profile boost. He agrees, and says they’re on the same side. Drew wonders if it’s too much to ask that they shake hands and go about their day. Curtis comes to the door, and asks if it’s a good time. Drew says, it’s a great time. Nina asks why Curtis didn’t tell her that he was in the running for head of security. He says he didn’t want to jinx it, but she says she could have put in a good word. Jax says, his background speaks for itself. Drew says he could have pulled some strings for him, but Curtis says he wanted to get the job on his own without anyone clearing the way.

Willow says her father wasn’t murdered, and Michael says, it’s a lot to process. He and Jason went to see Carol in Beecher’s Corners. Willow says Carol is the one her father got the drugs from, but Michael says, she was brought before Shiloh, who convinced her to confess so he could be exonerated. He’d been arrested, and told her he’d been scapegoated. He said DOD would fall apart unless someone sacrificed themselves to exonerate him, so she went to the police and lied. Willow asks why Shiloh would kill her father. Michael says her father wanted her out of DOD, and Shiloh couldn’t let that happen.

Shiloh tells Kim that he wasn’t aware Julian had a son young enough be in a custody battle. She says, it’s actually his grandson. His son Lucas has a baby boy. Shiloh says, Brad is his husband. Odd that he hasn’t seen Brad lately. Kim says, a baby can hijack your life. Everything else takes a backseat. He asks her to tell him more, but she doesn’t know the specifics. She was focused on Oscar, and didn’t ask. She knows it’s a source of stress for Julian. He’s concerned the biological father will make a bid for custody, and Julian thinks he’s a dangerous man. I ask Kim, why? Why are you telling him this?

Lucas tells Brad, if they skip town, they’ll have to change their identities. They can never tell Wiley who he is, and he’ll grow up in a lie, thinking he’s someone else. Is that the kind of life Brad wants for their son? Lucas doesn’t, or for them. Brad says, if it keeps Shiloh away from Wiley, it will be worth it. Lucas says he’s right. Keeping Wiley from Shiloh is the most important thing. They can’t break the law, and have to be smart about it. He thinks Alexis is right. He thinks they have to be honest about who Wiley’s father is. Well this is going to be interesting when the DNA doesn’t match.

Nina and Curtis say they’ll catch up soon. Nina leaves, but in the hallway, Jax asks her to wait. He tells her, congratulations on the early ad sales. It’s quite a feat. Ava is creating a buzz. Well done. She says she wanted to talk to him about Josslyn interning at Crimson. He says sometimes he forgets he has a teenage daughter, and can’t make her decisions for her. Nina says she tripped over the same stone with her daughter Sasha. When they met, she tried way too hard, and had to remind herself that Sasha is an adult, and doesn’t need her input on everything. She’s glad she and Valentin have a few years left before Charlotte is independent. Jax says they have common ground. The most important thing to them is their daughters.

Valentin says the time for Sasha to return is after the wedding. She says she doesn’t have much going on in Chappaqua since he recruited her to be Nina’s daughter. He says, timing is everything, and they agreed. She says she didn’t expect it to pan out the way it did. She cares about Nina, and Port Charles feels like home. She has a stake in this too. He says not much of one compared to him, and she says, it’s not about him. She has other reasons. He says, Michael?

Chase asks Michael if there’s any corroborating evidence. Michael says Carol is willing to go on record with her story, but a cop stopped her and Jason before they could leave. Willow asks if it was Billy Price, and Michael says it was. She asks how they got away, but Chase says he’s cutting Michael off here for his own good. Willow wonders if her mother knew Shiloh was planning on killing her father. Michael says, if she didn’t, this might open her eyes. It would help a lot if she’d stop protecting Shiloh. Willow doesn’t believe her mom could do that. Shiloh must have lied to her too. Michael promises it will all work out, and she thanks him. Michael leaves, and she says she can’t believe this. Shiloh timed her initiation so that she’d be busy, and her dad would be alone. She says, oh, God. She slept with him after he killed he father. Chase holds her as she quietly freaks about that.

Kim thanks Shiloh for coming by, and he says he’s glad to be of service. She opens the door, and Julian is there. He asks what the hell Shiloh is doing there? and Shiloh says he was just leaving. When he’s gone, Julian asks Kim why he was there. She says she was just asking for advice, but Julian says he doesn’t trust Shiloh around women. There’s a lot she doesn’t know about him.

Carly tells Sonny, it feels like hours. He says the doctor has a procedure, and she’s playing it safe. Dr. Navarro comes back, and Carly asks her to please tell them what’s wrong with their baby. The doctor explains that there’s a pocket of fluid preventing part of the spinal cord from protection. The bones haven’t fused. She says it’s spina bifida, and Sonny asks how serious it is. She says they won’t know until after the birth. Many babies with spina bifida go on to lead thriving lives. Carly says, but not all, and the doctor says in some cases it can lead to developmental impairment.

Brad runs into Charlie’s, looking for Julian. The bartender says he took off, and to try his cell. Shiloh comes in, and says he’s glad he caught Brad.

Kim says Julian is telling her the man her son went to for spiritual guidance has been drugging women and coercing them to have sex? Why didn’t he tell her sooner? She even read Shiloh’s book, so she would feel closer to Oscar. Julian says all he knew was Alexis had reservations. He didn’t know Shiloh was a sexual predator until Sam told him that Kristina had gotten involved with DOD. She’s lucky she got out before Shiloh hurt her. Kim says she’s in shock. She was hanging on his every word. Julian asks why Shiloh was there, and she says she wanted some help from somebody. He says that’s why he’s there. He’s worried about her, and so is Drew. Kim asks if Drew told him what happened; that she wanted to have a baby with him.

Valentin asks Sasha how much she knows about Michael. She says he’s got a huge, complicated family, and he’s genuinely kind, a rare quality. Valentin says, he also heads a major corporation, and has a significant amount of the Quartermaine fortune. She says she’s not after his money, but Valentin says, if Michael hasn’t investigated her yet, someone from his huge, complicated family will. He vetted her, and knows she’ll stand up to scrutiny, but if they go sniffing around, they’ll find out she’s not Nina’s daughter. She promises Michael’s family has no reason to go digging into her background. They’re not serious. He’s just a nice guy she enjoys spending time with. Valentin says he speaks from experience; lying to someone you love is a special kind of pain. You wonder every day if you’ll get discovered and lose everything. If she has any sense at all, she’ll get out now. He leaves, and Michael arrives.

Dr. Navarro tells Carly that they’ll monitor the situation, and determine the severity as it gets closer to the birth. She’ll need to have a C-section. Sonny asks if Carly is at higher risk, but the doctor says, no. Any surgery is a risk, but it’s relatively low. Carly asks if it’s anything she did or didn’t do that contributed, but Dr. Navarro says she did nothing to cause the condition. She leaves to give them some privacy, telling them to contact her anytime if they have questions. Sonny holds Carly, and she cries a little.

Sasha tells Michael that she was worried he stood her up. He says, sorry for being off the grid. Things with his family are kind of crazy. She asks if everything is okay, and he says, it’s headed in that direction. He hopes she wasn’t too bored, and she says, not at all. Valentin looks at them, and Nina joins him. She says, aren’t they adorable? and he says, they’re an attractive couple. She says, they’re perfect for each other. Just like them.

Jax goes back into Drew’s office, and asks what he missed. Curtis says he was sharing his security analysis, and pitching some changes that are easy to implement. Drew says the unknown factor is Jax.

Julian tells Kim that Drew didn’t say anything. He didn’t have to. Julian put it together; that’s why he’s there. She asks if he’s breaking up with her, and he says, not at all (phrase of the day). He says he’s not going to lie and say it didn’t hurt that she went to Drew, but he understands her going to Oscar’s father. If she’s going to have a child, she wants it to be a full sibling, and he can never give that to her. She thanks him for understanding, and he says he just wants her to be okay. She wonders how that’s going to happen, and he says she needs help. She asks if he means a psychiatrist or a grief counselor, and he says they can guide her. She says she doesn’t need guidance. He says he wants her to be better. She says there’s no getting better. Oscar is gone, and she’s never going to see him again.

Shiloh asks if Brad is all right. He seems stressed. Brad says he’s not, but Shiloh says, clearly something is troubling him. They can talk. Brad says he was just looking for his father-in-law, but he’s not there. Shiloh says, the offer stands, and hopes Brad comes back to DOD when they’re in a new location. Brad tells Shiloh to stay the hell away from him, and jets.

Willow says Chase probably has to take her back to her cell. She knows he thinks she should cooperate, but she’s not changing her mind. Chase says he’s the one changing his mind. He never doubted Shiloh is a dangerous criminal. Now they have a witness. They’ll reopen the investigation into her father’s death, and prove Shiloh killed him. He tells her, stay stubborn. Don’t cooperate. It will buy them time to get a statement. It might be enough, but they’ll keep learning the truth.

Shiloh sits at Charlie’s bar. He flashes back to Brad telling him, the birth mother insisted the adoption be closed. She said the birth father was never in the picture. She picked him and Lucas as parents, but now she wants to change the terms. She lives in Port Charles, and keeps finding ways to insert herself in their lives. Shiloh smirks.

Sonny asks if Carly is okay. She doesn’t know. It’s a lot. The worst case, their child will have a difficult life. Sonny says any baby they have will have their love, no matter what, and that’s all that matters. He hugs her.

On Monday, Maxie says this is terrible, Chase talks to Mac about Willow, and Shiloh says he knows who his son is.

🍹 In case you’re still interested, Southern Charm New Orleans is back on Sunday nights at 9 pm. While the original Southern Charm is one of my favorites, I just never got drawn in by its sister show. Sadly, the couple with the little dogs divorced, and they were the only ones I was marginally interested in. I also liked that girl who was on the periphery and liked to stir the pot. I don’t remember her name, but she seems to be gone now anyway. It’s always been one of those shows where, if there’s nothing else on, it’s better than sitcom reruns.

🍗 On the other hand, MasterChef is as good as ever. I finally got a chance to see an episode from the current season, where the cooks were barbecuing for 100 guests, including some former finalists. They were divided into two teams, and the winners (blue) also made the biggest blunder, with team member Subah forgetting to turn on the grill. That’s kind of important. There were still eighteen contestants, so I didn’t even bother taking names, but I did note the captain of the red team, Sarah, could have been the sister of Teddi from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Not only do they look similar, it was eerie to watch Sarah having the same speech inflections, mannerisms, and taking of responsibility – aka owning it. It was a bit of a cliffhanger, since the elimination challenge won’t be shown until the next episode. It also gave me a couple of MasterQuotes:

I need a whiskey or cold beer really bad right now. – Name unknown, but a thought probably shared by everyone.

We should never have sent out raw food, like, period. – Noah, after his team lost.

🌎 NeNe Vs the World…

NeNe used to be fun. Even her ongoing feud with Kim Zolciak was fun. Who can forget, close your legs to married men? But it seems like now she has an ongoing feud with everyone. I stopped watching RHOA a while ago because the whole show became all about shade, and NeNe’s behavior has gotten worse as the years have gone on. I caught some of the last reunion, and she didn’t have a kind word for anyone. I feel badly about Greg’s illness, and realize it’s been a difficult road, but she’s just using it for one more excuse to act any way she pleases. She needs to retire her crown. She was dethroned by her own ego long ago.
