What I Watched Today

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

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Alicia pikes zombies, while Luci circles X’s on a map. John knifes zombies in the head, and June cuts through the rope between them. Alicia gets Morgan on the radio. She tells him she’s by the turnaround. John says, there’s nothing new, but they’re keeping their eyes peeled. Luci says the roadblocks form a pattern, and John says they’ll figure out a way in. Morgan loses the signal. Luci says something about a gas station, but starts to break up. John and June come across another chain of zombies blocking the road. He says, these kinds of warnings mean serious people are on the other side. June says they’re serous people. John thinks the chances of finding Al are less and less as time goes on. Shots are fired at them, and John and June run back to the car. John says they don’t want any trouble. They manage to get inside the car, but the back window is shot out. John wonder who the hell that is, and Jun says, serious people. John says they need more firepower. Their luck just turned again.

Zombies climb a windmill tower. Tumbleweeds blow through a Western-type ghost zombie town. John and June get out of the car. She asks what this place is, and John says, his old stomping grounds. Welcome to the Gulch.

A sign says, welcome to Humbug’s Gulch. John thinks there might be a dust storm coming. June ask if he used to work there, but the wind is so loud, I don’t hear what he says, but the town is basically a tourist thing that had actors; not a real town. They come to a building that says Brothel, and John says this is where they find the weapons. The wind blew them where they needed to be. June asks if it ever blows somewhere else, and he says, no. They go inside, and upstairs. John tries a cabinet, but it’s locked. While he messes with the lock, June looks through a rack of clothes. John gets ready to shoot the lock, telling June it’s his last round, but she sees a key on the dresser. He opens the cabinet, which is full of guns and ammo. June thinks they’re good.

Alicia asks Luci how she’s doing, and if she can move her arm yet. She can’t, and Alicia apologizes for what happened. Luci says there are words and actions, and they took action. Alicia says they crashed a plane, but Luci doesn’t regret getting on it. Alicia tries to radio the kids, and tells them if they can hear her, get back to the van. Alicia hears Annie saying not to talk; they’ll hear. Alicia says they want to help, and Annie asks what’s wrong with her? Leave them alone. Alicia asks where are they? and Annie tells her, if she says, they’ll find them. Alicia asks, who? and Annie tells Dylan to hide. They’re cut off. Alicia says they can’t leave.

June radios Morgan and Luci, but gets nothing. She asks John how long thees things last. He thinks they can make it to the car if they hurry. She asks what it’s like if you get stuck in it. What if they don’t make it? He says it’s like midnight, and you can’t breathe. Maybe they should wait it out. He says they can load up in the meantime. He starts looking for things they can use, while June has a beer and some snacks. She picks up a Western show program, and asks if he was a good or a bad guy. He says he didn’t get into theatrics; his talent was trick shooting. She asks about the different tricks listed in the program, but he ignores her. He says they can’t just wait here. June says they can’t help if they don’t make back, but John says they can, and they go back out.

Someone starts to shoot, and they duck behind a building. John yells, hold your fire! They see the tires have been shot out on the car. Someone at the end of the street continues to shoot at them, and John shoots back. He and June run. Getting distracted by a Wanted poster, John turns back, and finds a gun in his face. It’s Dwight from The Walking Dead. He says, where is she? Answer him. June comes up behind Dwight, and clonks him in the head. John thanks her, calling her June Bug, and she says, not yet. They have to get him inside.

An unconscious Dwight is tied to a chair. John says whoever he’ looking for, he’s been at it some time. He looks through Dwight’s stuff. He says that’s a helluva burn, and asks if June thinks he had it before/ He’s all worn down looking for some woman. Maybe he cracked, and got confused. If he’s a killer, he’s in no shape to kill anyone. June says he’s someone who genuinely needs their help. They notice the wind has died down, and zombies are gathering. John says even if they pick them off, they’ll attract more attention, and eventually run out of ammo. Dwight starts to wake up, and John tells him, easy. June says it’s okay. Dwight tells John not to touch his stuff. John says they don’t mean him any harm. He asks who Dwight is looking for, and June says she has to treat his wound. John says whoever he’s looking for must be important for him to point a gun at Johns’ head. June reminds Dwight that they could have left him out there. John says they’re looking for someone too. They can compare notes, not trade shots. He asks if Dwight knows who’s responsible for blocking the roads, or what’s on the other side. He thinks whoever Dwight was looking for might have been trying to get away from some bad people. June says they just want to help, and Dwight says they can’t. No one can. The whole place is screwed.

Dylan tells Alicia that they’re near the fireworks stand. Morgan says he can’t raise John and June on the radio. Alicia says she knows what she should have said to those kids. Alicia and Luci hear a bang, and they run off the road. Morgan asks if they’re okay. Alicia gets out. She sees that one of the tires is flat, and she’s run over a board that has nails sticking out of it. Luci says, someone doesn’t want them there. Alicia says that’s means they’re getting closer. Morgan tells them stay where they are. He’s coming. Alicia tries to call the kids, but gets no response. She tells Luci, let’s go. Morgan will catch up.

Zombies claw at the door, and John says, it can only hold for so long. June asks if there’s another way out, and he says, the roof, but then they need to hoof it out of town. Dwight says his car is at the end of the street. He’ll give them the keys, and they can take it. Go. John says he’s coming with them, but Dwight says he can’t. He put a gun to John’s head. John says maybe he’s being presumptuous, but it seems Dwight has been separated from someone as dear to him, as June is to John. They didn’t always have the good fortune to be together, and John went to a dark place. He shot a man’s finger off because he thought the man knew what happened to June. If he hadn’t found her, he might have done something worse. Although the guy was a disagreeable a-hole. They can help each other. Who is he looking for? Dwight says, his wife; her name is Shari. Dwight, John, and June introduce themselves. John shakes Dwight’s hand. Dwight says if he can have his gun back, he promises to point it at something other than them. June says he’s going to need it.

They get the player piano going, and slip upstairs. Attracted by the music, the zombies bust in, and more pour in from outside. June, John, and Dwight go out the windows above the awning, which isn’t too steady. Dwight jumps down, and John is like, what? Dwight rolls around on the ground for a moment, and shoots a zombie. He tells John, get to the car. John drops down, and June keeps watch. Dwight tells John that he calls the zombies walkers. June runs to where there’s a wagon below, filled with laundry bags. She jumps into it. Dwight chops a zombie in the head with an ax. You can tell he’s in a lot of pain. John and June head for the car. These zombies are kind of fast. Dwight hesitates, and then goes in the other direction. June and John get in car, and June asks where Dwight is.

He’s sitting in the car John and June came in. He pulls all kinds of paperwork and maps out from behind the visors, and out of the glovebox, obviously looking for something. Zombies start to clamor at windows, and Dwight is like, sh*t. John calls him on the radio. Dwight picks up the walkie-talkie, and John asks what the car has to do with Dwight’s wife. Dwight says that’s why he came at them. It was her car. He tells John that they should go. He’s gotten them in enough trouble. John tells him, stay calm. He looks at the back of a car registration, where West on 30 is written. He says when his wife moves to a new place, she leaves him a message. He thought he’d find one in the car. The last one was on a registration, but there’s nothing in there. It’s been at least a year, and there have been a lot of dead ends. He asks where they found the car, and John says, it was at a campground. Dwight says, tell him, and June takes the walkie-talkie. She says, there wasn’t anybody there alive, but that doesn’t mean she’s not out there. She and John were somewhere else. Dwight looks at his gun, but I figure he’s not going to shoot himself, since they took the trouble of transferring him to this show.

Dwight tells them, go, but June says they’re not leaving him like this. He says he’ll get through, and John says they’ll find her. He found June. Everybody said she was dead. Dwight says he’s gone halfway across the country, and he’s always two or three steps behind. He thought maybe she just got a head start or he missed a message or two, but now he starting to see it. June says he doesn’t think he deserves to find her. He says he’s not like them. He did things… things they can’t imagine. June says, they all have. Dwight says he’s still doing things. He tried to kill them because he thought maybe they’d done something to her, but they didn’t. There was nothing to find, and he might have killed them for nothing. It doesn’t matter if he’s alive or dead; he’s never going to find her and make it right/ That’s who he is now. June says, just don’t be that person. Giving up is just as bad… John tries stop her, but she says, he needs to hear this. He’s giving up because he thinks he doesn’t deserve his wife. She did the same thing; she ran from John. Dwight says, this is different, but June says, it’s not different. John almost got killed finding her. Shari is still out there, and if he’s choosing to believe she is, that looks like she hasn’t given up. And if she hasn’t, how can he? The cluster of zombies scrabbles at the windows and drools, looking at Dwight inside the car. Dwight cries a little, and says he can’t get back to them. He won’t be able to. John says, leave that to them.

Alicia asks if the kids copy. She and Luci walk down the road, and Morgan pulls up with a truck. He says, anything? and Alicia says, either they don’t want to answer, or they can’t. Morgan says, they could still be listening, so keep trying. Talk to them. She radios, saying she has to tell them something she should have told when she was with them. She lost her mom and her brother. She knows how much they’re hurting, and how scared they must be. Not because she’s been there, but because she’s there now, and wants them to know they don’t have to do it alone. If they’re listening, tell her where they are. Her group can help. The kids might not believe it, but she promises if given a chance, they will. She gets silence. Morgan nods. Alicia says, let’s go.

John sets down his bag, and takes up his rifle, and June backs him up. John starts shooting, and says, come to me. Dwight shoots a few zombies through the back window. John keeps shooting, taking out a handgun with his other hand. June’s gun won’t work, so she whacks a zombie with the butt of the gun.  John keeps shooting. Dwight gets out of the car, and uses the butt of his gun to hack a zombie in the forehead, but the zombie falls on him, and he’s pinned. What’s left of the zombie crowd around his car notices. John runs to June, who says she has one shot left. He grabs her gun and tells Dwight, raise the ax; hold it. He shoots the ax head, and the bullet ricochets off, killing the two zombies closest to Dwight. He frees Dwight from the zombie trapping him, and tells June, that’s a San Antonio split. They help Dwight up, and John says that’s only the second time he pulled that off.

Inside, John looks through Dwight’s stuff from the car, while Dwight carves a message into the wall. John says it wasn’t her car. The VIN number on the registration doesn’t match the car. She could be out there, or left a message in the car she was actually driving. John says he used to be cop. Law enforcement is a thing of the past now, but he’s trained. It serves a purpose once in a while. Dwight thanks him.

John tells June that he went by Six Gun Sam when he occasionally took part in theatrics. She kisses him. and he thanks her for what she said to Dwight. She says, he needed to hear it, and John says, he did too. He’d been questioning what he has, and why he deserves it. He couldn’t share his feelings, and by doubting it, he was taking it away from them, and neither one of them wants that. Morgan arrives with Luci and Alicia.

Morgan asks, what is this place? and John says he used to work in a place like this. He didn’t know the dividends were going to pay. Dwight comes out, and says, Morgan? June says, they know each other? Morgan says they come from the same place. Dwight tells Morgan that he’s following Shari. When her trail hit Georgia, everything seemed to drive her this way. He wants Morgan to understand what happened, but Morgan tells him that he doesn’t have to say it. Not now. He knows how it ended for Dwight. They’re all trying to start over. Morgan asks how long Dwight’s been stuck there, and Dwight says, longer than he’d hoped. Alicia asks if he knows what’s keeping them away with the blockades of the dead. He says he’s only been able to go so far. He can show them.

They go to where some dead are chained together as a blockade. Dwight says he tried to make his way around them, but they’re strung up everywhere. It’s as far as you can walk. Alicia says, not for long, and they all take out their guns. Alicia’s radio comes alive. It’s Max, and Alicia says the group came for them. They’ll be okay. He says they got the message, and they’re on their way to them. They’re at the truck stop. Everyone stops what they’re doing, and they leave.

Alicia smiles, and says, it’s starting to feel like they’re on the right track. Morgan believes they are. Luci suddenly says, what’s that? and Morgan says, it’s the van the kids were driving. Alicia says, no.

The same kind of ropes that were tying the zombie blockades together, are wrapped around the van. They cut the ropes off, and find a blood-covered Dylan lying on the backseat, barely conscious. Alicia asks where Max and Annie are.

Elsewhere in the woods, someone ties up a zombie, and checks out a map. Annie asks Max if he thinks they bought it, and he says, definitely. She says, Dylan might crack, or they might figure out why they’re here, and who took their friend. Annie says they have to make sure they’re never bothered again. She says he sounds scared, but he insists he isn’t. They leave, having put together another zombie blockade.

Next time, Victor uncovers a plane, the cat still lives, and Victor tells someone to open the gate.

🐩 Come On, Baby, Do It For Mama…

I would be remiss in not mentioning this week’s passing of an amazing actress. Midnight Cowboy is one of my favorite movies ever, and I love the story about Maureen Stapleton thinking Sylvia was a real hooker.

📡 Although it will never happen, I try to get my money’s worth of the too much I spend per month on the 500+ channels, most of which I don’t watch. This weekend, I was able to catch The Hate U Give on HBO. I don’t really review films, but it’s worth seeing. It’s well-written and thought provoking, the acting is superb, and the end both heart- breaking and hopeful. Catch it while U can.

💍 I’m loving the insanity that is the 90 Day Fiancé franchise, even though I have to watch in bits and pieces, due to FWD and NOS4ATU competing on Sunday night. If you haven’t seen the latter, it’s another brilliant piece of work, and Zachery Quinto is scary as hell. My favorite thing about 90 this season is the addition of Pillow Talk, where the nicer people who have been on the show (there are some couples, but also friends and relations), watch the episodes featuring the worst couples, and comment on them. I literally lol my way through it every week. The only thing I like more than watching TV, is watching someone else watch TV. I’m not sure what that says about me…

🌴 A Mini Mental Vacation…

Hoping all the father’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day, and the rest of you had a weekend filled with whatever takes your fancy. Alas, Monday morning and work come all too quickly, so enjoy the beach on me. Just ignore that dude with the dark sunglasses.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Sonny tells Jason to give it a minute, but Jason doesn’t want Sam blindsided. Sonny tells him they can hate Shiloh now, and worry about it later. Jason says Sonny heard what he did. He drugged Sam until she couldn’t say no or fight. Franco drugged Sam, and he couldn’t intervene. He failed her then, and doesn’t want to wait. Sonny says they can plan it, but they just can’t do it now. They’ll get it done, but not this way, with anger and on impulse. Jason will end up in prison. Is that what he wants for Sam and the kids? Jason says, no, and Sonny says, then he’s got to wait. It’s for a reason. He doesn’t mind getting rid of Shiloh, but they have to do it right for everybody’s sake.

At Charlie’s, Shiloh asks for coffee. The waitress says she just saw Julian ask him to leave. Shiloh says, you can’t build a bridge without coming down the river. (Huh?) It’s just a coffee. She goes to get it, and he looks through the hospital list. He makes a call, asking to speak to someone in the birth records office.

Maxie asks if Peter has heard of hygge. He says, it’s the Danish word for warm and cozy. Maxie says they wanted to introduce it to American readers last year, but it didn’t happen, so she’s prepping for the October issue to make up for the missed opportunity. Peter says, by October, it should be enticing. I’m thinking Crimson wouldn’t be this behind the times, and isn’t there a new Danish word in vogue now? Maxie says Nina wants pick out everything, so she’s putting the elements in a large pile. He sees a pile of pillows and blankets, and says it will be warm and cozy in the office. He tells her that his weekend is cleared, and asks if she want to visit Robin in Berkeley. She looks at her calendar, and sees Peter’s surprise birthday party. She says her schedule is like an avalanche meets a tsunami meets some other insurmountable thing.

Chase visits Willow at her classroom. The classroom that’s always devoid of children. She says the school year is almost over. It snuck up on her. After she was told she wasn’t invited back, she didn’t want it to end, but here they are. She says she has feelers out in the Port Charles area. She tells him that she spoke with Diane, who reminded her of how many people are fighting for Wiley. Chase says, Wiley has an army. She says Shiloh thinks she had his baby, but without proof, there’s not much he can do, especially from jail. She sees his face, and asks, what’s wrong? He hates tell her this, but the charges against Shiloh have been dropped, and he’s been released.

In her session, Alexis tells Neil, Shiloh is the gift that keeps on giving. The real reason Willow left DOD was because she was pregnant, and didn’t want him to know. Unfortunately, she gave the baby up for adoption, and didn’t tell him. Now he knows, and he’s seeking parental rights. Neil asks how this connects to what they were talking about, and she says, just wait. One of the adoptive parents is her client, and also happens to be Julian’s son. Neil says, the clouds part. She says Julian came to her and asked her to help his son by whatever means possible.

Sam gets a call from Jason, and asks, what’s up? Jason says he wanted to let her know that Shiloh was released and the charges were dropped. She asks how that’s possible, and he says he’ll explain later, but she needs to keep an eye out. He might come after her. She walks into Charlie’s, and says she’s looking at him now. Jason asks where she is, and says he’s on his way. Sam walks past Shiloh, and this moron gets up and follows her. He says he’s glad she’s there. He wanted to look her in the eye when he told her this. She wonders what else he could possibly have to say to her, and he says he’s sorry. Seriously? Is that the best he can do?

Willow tells Chase that she doesn’t understand. They had proof. Chase says one of his followers claims she’s the one who drugged Kristina and Sam. Willow says, Harmony. Her mother, and Shiloh’s biggest fan. After he left, Harmony stopped by to tell her that she doesn’t believe Willow lost the baby. She said she was Willow’s only hope to broker peace, and she should tell Harmony where the baby is for her own sake. Chase says, or what? and Willow says, Shiloh is devious enough to think of something. Chase asks if Harmony threatened Willow on Shiloh’s behalf, and she says someone had to. She says Chase probably thinks there’s a sacred bond between a mother and child, but for her, there isn’t been. Chase says he’s been a cop long enough to learn that. She says her mother chose her over Shiloh, but it’s not personal. She chose Shiloh over everyone, including herself. Now she’s going to jail for him. Harmony brought her to DOD in the first place, and gave Willow to him. Now she’s choosing his freedom over hers and Willow’s.

Shiloh says he’s sorry Sam believes what’s being said, but now he understands why she was upset at the hospital. She says he drugged her and tried to have sex with her without her consent. He says she may have been drugged, but it was Harmony who did it. She says, oh, he’s blaming Harmony. She didn’t carry Sam up the spiral staircase when she was passed out or started fondling her when she couldn’t resist. Or did he think she was just relaxed? He swears he’d never do anything without her permission. Many people saw them together, and saw how she reacted to his presence. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. She’s attracted to him. She’d like to teach him a lesson. When a person can’t say no, they can’t say yes. She did not consent. He says he’s sorry for the misunderstanding, but at least the person responsible has been arrested. She says, just like Daisy with the crazy emails, and he says, exactly. Now they’re bearing the consequences. It’s behind them, and now they can look forward and continue the journey they started.

Kristina finds Sonny (once again in the kitchen), and he asks what’s wrong? Does it have something to do with Shiloh’s release? He promised she didn’t have to be afraid anymore, and he’s keeping that promise. Didn’t she feel things were on track when she got up this morning? Just because Shiloh was released, that doesn’t change anything. Kristina says she knows Sonny hates him. She does too, but she doesn’t want him to die.

Kristina tells Sonny that she knows she made a mess of things. He tells her not to blame herself, but she says it was her fault. She’s grateful for the forgiveness, but she has to own what did. She was stupid. Some guy said she was awesome, and could be more awesome if she did what he said. She should have known better. He says she’s not the only one, but she says she’s Sonny daughter. She’s Alexis’s daughter. She should have learned by now. She survived Kiefer and what happened to Trey. She’s in her twenties, and already a widow. She doesn’t understand why she didn’t learn from those tragedies.  She didn’t listen to him or her mom, but listened to her own insecurities. Sonny jokes that she should blame her mother; she married Julian. She says, don’t make her laugh, and he says he’s serious. He believes in her. He always will, and will never stop. She asks what reason she’s given him, other than being his daughter. He asks how much time she’s got, and she says, more time than he needs, but it’s nice of him to say. Sonny says he’s a nice guy; everyone knows that. She appreciates everything he does, but he has to stop fixing things, especially this.

Neil says, so Alexis’s ex came to her for help, and she took umbrage with that. She says it’s not the asking for help. It’s by whatever means possible that concerns her. Julian is supposedly on the straight and narrow, but has no problem compromising her ethics. Neil takes it she said no. She says he even had the gall to point out she can be more flexible when it serves her. Neil thinks when people break rules, it’s usually for a selfish reason, even if it’s for someone else. They get something out of it, or it’s not worth the risk. She says her thinking this way hasn’t led a moral high ground. Julian said that when they got Kristina out of the cult, Kristina didn’t ask for help, and they didn’t ask permission. If she could kidnap Kristina, why can’t she help his son? Neil says she sounds angry. She says she is, but Julian is probably right.

Peter asks if Maxie wants to grab a bite to eat. She wishes she could, but Nina is pitching Ava for the cover, and working out the details. She’s in the long stretch at the office. Back to work. She asks if he spoke to his mom, and if she has any idea where Dante is. He says he hasn’t been able to pin her down.

Shiloh says, now that he’s apologized, is Sam going to honor her promise to help him heal? She says she did promise that. She lied. She lied to get what she wanted, like he did. One thing she admires is his skill at a long con. He says that’s her area of expertise. She says, it could be, but she didn’t bring him here. She calls him Hank, and says he came there looking for her. It made him happy, thinking he had her, and she wanted him. Please. Who does he think is really running the con now? Her or him? He grabs her arm, and Jason appears. He tells Shiloh, careful. His next move could be his last.

Shiloh asks if Sam is as good a liar with Jason as she is with him. Does she make promises to Jason like she did to him? Sam says when she makes promises to Jason, she keeps them. He says, what a bond they have. It doesn’t matter. He’s a father. There’s a little baby waiting for him to find it. Sorry, he can’t stay and play. He tells Jason that he also reminded the police that Jason attacked him. He told them that Jason or Sonny might come after him, due to the misunderstanding. if something happens to him, even by accident, they’ll come looking for Jason. Jason says he’ll keep that in mind, and Sam says, good luck with that. Shiloh leaves, and Jason asks if Sam is okay. She says she is. She’s glad she doesn’t have to pretend to believe in Shiloh anymore.

Chase asks Willow if her mother has always been devoted like this. Willow says, with all her gurus and cult leaders? No. They never captivated her. It’s partly due to her dad. Chase says she never mentioned her father, so he assumed he wasn’t part of the picture. She says that’s her fault. It hurts too much to explain, so she glosses over it. It wasn’t fair to her dad, and he did try, over and over. She says he was a little more skeptical. Shiloh was the first person to convince her mother that he had the answers. Chase says, one of his hardcore followers, but Willow says, not hardcore, but she believed Shiloh was sincere, and that DOD was dedicated to helping and doing good deeds. Her mother loved every minute. She was a strong, fierce, badass woman because Shiloh said she was. They joined as a family, but before too long, her mother was all about Shiloh. He came between her and her dad. In Harmony’s eyes, her dad was weak, and Shiloh was Superman. He used Harmony to take advantage, but everything really changed when he created the Trust. There are no men in it, and Harmony was the first woman invited to join. After she slept with Shiloh, it broke her dad. Chase asks, what happened?

Kristina says she loves Sonny. He got her out of DOD – even if it was kicking and screaming – and she’s grateful. She sees DOD and Shiloh for what they really are. She says he always comes to her rescue, and Sonny says, that’s what dads do. She says she thought they were supposed to make sure their kids could fend for themselves. Sonny says, that’s with sons, and she says, sexist much? He says mothers do it with their daughters, and spoil their sons. Fathers do it with their sons, and spoil their daughters. It’s like the circle of life. Kristina says she needs him to try something different. No more getting her into colleges, offering her jobs, or paving her way. He needs to let her stand on her own.

Alexis tells Neil that Julian was completely inappropriate, but he inspired her to take moral inventory. He asks what she found, and she says some things he already knows. The big ones, but there’s a list of smaller, embarrassing things that featured prominently in the smear campaign when she was running for mayor. He can find them online. He says he’ll be sure to look those up. She says she had a shift in perspective about Kristina. She wonders if Kristina thinks she’s so ethically challenged, that she’s more dangerous than her father, and that’s why she made the Pledge about her. Neil says, it’s possible. What is she planning on doing? Alexis says, nothing. She’s listening to him, and letting it rest. It’s not easy. Even if the Pledge has been neutralized, Shiloh knows, and she’ll always be thinking about it. What would Neil do if his daughter knew something about his life that could ruin him? He tells her that their time is up. Alexis thought they had a few more minutes. He tells her that he’s paid to treat her, and talking about his private life is not part of the program.

Peter says it’s obvious how much Lulu misses her husband, and he understands Maxie is dumping focus on that or work, but tell him what’s really going on. She says Dante being away from his family is part of it, but she’s worried he’s not coming back. Peter tells her, for Lulu’s sake, why not trust herself again? Why not give Dante time to heal? It can take years sometimes, but give them room to breathe. She says they don’t need room; they need to get a room, and help each other make a stronger bond. She tells Peter, you don’t give up. Not on love.

Willow tells Chase that Harmony got her dad kicked out of DOD. Not long after, he… She starts to cry, and says, he passed away. That’s when Shiloh wanted her to join the trust. Chase asks if her mother was okay with that, and Willow says she wanted to score points with Shiloh by offering her daughter to him. But when he started to favor her, her mother was furious and jealous. When Harmony tried to stand up for herself, Shiloh told her that she was reacting from an evil place. Harmony may resent the man she loves for sleeping with her daughter, but she can’t deny him. Willow is sure Shiloh was livid when Harmony couldn’t give him any information about the baby. Her confessing to his crimes is her way making of it up to him.

Sam tells Jason she’s sorry. She knows he wanted to handle Shiloh. Jason says they know how it would have turned out. Sam says, she got a tattoo; she let herself be drugged, and almost raped. She doesn’t want this to be like last time. Jason says Shiloh will never touch her again. He’s going to make sure of it.

Maxie tells Peter that Lulu deserves to know her husband is safe. Why not let her look? Peter says Maxie isn’t married to Dante; she needs to respect Lulu’s decision. Maxie says Dante loves his family, but needs to know Lulu still holds him in her heart. She assumes he sees it differently, and if they can help him gain sight about how much they love each other, they should do that. Peter thinks he knows where she’s coming from.

Chase says Willow has done everything in her power to protect Wiley. She says but Shiloh still thinks the baby is out there. Running will make him think she has something to hide, so she’s staying put. She wants to make sure she has no connection to a living child. She goes into her purse, and says, this is all she has. The one moment he was hers. She shows Chase a hospital bracelet with Baby Boy Tait on it, and says she can’t risk keeping it.

Shiloh tells Shawna in the birth records department that he knew she was a kind person. He’s hoping to get his sister off the streets. She says she’s kind of a fan. She read his book, and is familiar with DOD’s work. The world needs more people like him, reminding them that they’re here to take care of each other. He says he’s glad his message spoke to her. He writes something down, and she says they don’t usually give out information. He says, normally, they’re not inclined to give out personal information on DOD residents, but he’s worried. He thought she might see her way clear to bend the rules a little; help someone in need. She says she’ll see what they have on his sister, if anything. He says ever since she ran away, she’s been using the alias Willow Tait. He hopes he’s not overstepping, but she’s give him comfort. Her being there seems like a sign he’s in the right place. She says they do have a record. She was admitted in July of 2018. He says she has no idea how much joy this brings him. I know there are exceptions to every rule, and that people break rules, but it annoys me when they do something that’s this unbelievable. It would have been a better choice to have him get her out of the room, and find the information himself. I’ve worked at a clinic, and there’s no way in hell he’d get this information, especially just walking in off the street. I don’t care what book he wrote.

Sam tells Jason it was her risk to take. He says he still has nightmares of being locked in a room, watching what Franco did to her, and he can’t get to her or stop it. He wakes up, reminding himself it was years ago, and memories fade. He thinks it’s because he didn’t do anything to save her. Deep down, he’s afraid it will happen again. Sam says he has to tell her these things, and he says she never asked him to change because he’s afraid, and he’s not asking her to change either.

Sonny asks if he can get Kristina an apartment. She says, no, and he says, a car? She says, tempting, but no. He says, what about a small business? She’s like, come on, and he says he’s teasing. He’s proud of her, and doesn’t want her to see him getting emotional. She says she can’t rebuild her life knowing her mistakes drove him to commit an act of violence. He says his choices are his own, and she says she’s not questioning that, but asking him to honor hers. She chooses not to have Shiloh’s blood on her hands.

Alexis goes back to Neil’s office. She says she doesn’t mean to barge in, but feels uncomfortable about how they left the last session. He knows about her, but she doesn’t know about him. She’s sorry to upset be accidentally invading his privacy. She doesn’t know anything except what he’s told her, or she looked up online. He appreciates her apology, but she asks if he accepts it. He’d like to request that she honor doctor/patient boundaries.

Maxie tells Peter that she’ll make order out of chaos until Nina descends on the office again. He lies down on the pillows and blankets, and she asks if she should move the props. He says, don’t, and she says he looks comfortable. She joins him, and he says he was thinking about what she said, how it’s important to let the people you care about know how you feel. Maxie says that’s why it’s important that he knows how she feels about him, so he’s not guessing. They kiss, and he says she’s the first person to ever teach him what love is. He still doesn’t exactly know what do about it. She says, it’s okay. Love is kind of her thing. He says he noticed, and she says, to be honest, she thinks he’s getting the hang of it. They kiss some more.

Chase tells Willow that he’ll hold on to the bracelet. When Shiloh is no longer a threat and she’s safe – which he promises will happen – he’ll give it back. She says she’d like that very much, and he hugs her.

Shiloh tells Shawna, sorry. He knows he shouldn’t ask, but does she know why his sister was there? No specifics. He just wants to know is she’s okay, and that it was nothing life-threatening. She says, on the contrary. She had a baby. He says he has a niece or nephew, and she says, a healthy baby boy. I say, fire her ass immediately, and he says, fantastic. He can’t wait to welcome his nephew into the family. I’m fuming, since not only would they never give out this information, if she read his book, wouldn’t she know that he doesn’t have a sister?

Sam asks Jason to tell her something. He says, it depends, and smiles. She says, seriously. When he has nightmares, if she’s with him, wake her up. If not, please pick up the phone and call her. He asks if she still has nightmares, and she says, sometimes. He says she can wake him up, and he’ll remind her that they survived. She says, they did, didn’t they? She loves him, and feels safe with him. He says he loves her too, and they kiss.

Jason’s phone rings. It’s Sonny, who says, about their conversation earlier, put the project on hold. Jason is sorry to hear that. Sonny is too, but that’s what it has to be for now. Kristina smiles at Sonny. Sam says, it sounded like bad news. He says, Sonny doesn’t want him dealing with Shiloh. She says, it’s not that bad. If Shiloh disappeared, Jason would be the prime suspect. Jason says, Shiloh needs be finished, one way or the other. Sam says, okay. They’ll figure something out. They’re good at that.

Tomorrow, Maxie says Josslyn can talk to her, Ryan wonders how he got there, and Kim collapses.

The Haves and The Have Nots

There’s no money in the account. Hanna says, his damn sister. Benny says, the money was just there. The officer says, now it’s not. He asks where it is now, and she goes to check the records. Benny doesn’t think it was Candace. If she had the money, she would have given it to him. She said she didn’t have it, and he wants to give her the benefit of the doubt. Hanna says they’ll see. She says, both of the families are going to be after him now, but he tells her, hang on.

At the Artisian, RK goes to Scott’s room. He tells Scott the others are on the way. He suggests Scott take his clothes off. Scott says, him first. He asks if Scott wants a drink, and mixes one. Scott hears the President Elect stayed there; that’s pretty cool. RK gives him a drink, and there’s a knock at the door. It’s Rocky. Scott asks if they do drugs. RK says they like to party. Scott takes out what looks like an eye-drop container, and says they have to try this. When he puts it in his drink, if it changes color, someone is trying to drug him. He puts some in, and his drink turns blue. RK says, damn maids. Rocky is sure it’s nothing. Scott says there’s a nice cozy pub in London where Rocky can get a job, and speaks into a microphone on his collar, asking someone to come out. Broderick enters the room. Rocky says he’s supposed to be covering the bar, and Scott says, he’s not. They’re under arrest. Broderick says Scott knows everything, and Scott says they’ve been running a prostitution ring. Broderick says he’ll talk. He tells Rocky and RK that they don’t know how much Scott has on them. RK says, arrest him; he has nothing to say. Scott says if they testify against Candace, he’ll let them go. Rocky asks what he wants to know. She’s done a lot of evil things, and beat hell out of him. RK tells him, shut up, and he says RK is always on her side. Scott says if RK walks out, he’ll be arrested. RK says, fine. Scott radios his men to take RK out the back door. He doesn’t want to attract attention. I start wondering if Scott is the same character from Too Close To Home, since a lot of them worked for the government, but I look it up, and no.

RK jets. Two guys come out, and he really jets. They fly after him.

Scott says Rocky knows her. He said she beat hell out of him. Someone radios Scott, and he says, what? Find him now. He asks Rocky and Broderick, where did he go? He got away. The other two don’t know, and he tells them, think. Broderick says he told Scott everything. Scott says if RK calls her, the deal is off. Broderick says Scott told him that if he talked, he could walk. Scott says, change of plans. He’s going to have them both deported, and put on the terrorist watch list. Broderick says, that’s not what they agreed on. Scott says, Broderick thinks he’s a man of his word? He’s there to win, and get it done. He leaves. Neither one of them know where RK is. Broderick says he’s just going to go, and Rocky is like, damn!

Hanna wonders what’s taking so long. Now she’ll have to call Kathryn. Benny says he’s not scared of that dude, but he doesn’t want that fool thinking he stole his money. Hanna asks why he’s so calm. Did he do something with the money? He says, no, but she thinks he’s too calm about this. She calls Candace, and leaves a message to call her back. Benny says she and Candace just got in a good place. Don’t accuse her. Hanna says she’s just going to ask, but Bennie says, don’t go blaming her. The officer comes back, and says the money was wired out. They’re trying to find out by who. They got a reverse notice from the delivery bank to send it back to where it came from, the Cryer Company. Hanna says, so it went back; good. Benny asks, when? and the officer says, a few days ago. He says, it doesn’t make sense, and Hanna says she’ll call them. The officer leaves. What really doesn’t make sense is how lax this bank is. The officer had said they were actually $4000 overdrawn. This happened a few days ago, and they didn’t let the account holder know?

Kathryn calls Broderick, who tells her the hotel has been busy. She wonders why he’s being so formal, and he says he has to call her back. She asks, what’s going on? but he won’t tell her. He hangs up, and someone else answers when she calls back. She’s told Broderick just left. He walked out, and didn’t say where he was going. She gets another call, and it’s Hanna. She says they’re at the bank, and the money was reversed back to the account; the Cryer Company. Kathryn says Jim didn’t tell her, and says she’ll call Hanna back after she talks to him.

Jim sees Wyatt, and asks if he’s high. I’d say so, since he barely understands Jim is there. Jim asks, what the hell did he do? and smacks him. He asks where Wyatt got drugs, but Wyatt is too out of it to answer. Jim says don’t make him toss the room. Kathryn calls for Jim, and he says their son is high. She asks where he got drugs. Jim has no idea, but he got them somewhere. Kathryn says, let him sleep it off, proving she doesn’t understand the difference between drugs and alcohol. Jim says, he’s high as a kite. She says there’s nothing they can do now, and she has to talk to him. He tells Wyatt, stay there, like Wyatt can even get up. Kathryn asks if Jim has $8 million waiting. Hanna just called, and said it’s already in the account. It’s been there since last week. Jim says, no, and she tells him, call Lloyd. There was a reversal back to the Cryer Company. He says that’s not his company; she’s playing games. He says he’s getting to the bottom of it, and Kathryn says, don’t go near Hanna or her son. Jim says he’ll do what he has to, but Kathryn means it. Leave them alone. He storms out, and she calls him an a-hole.

Charles tells Candace that he just has to pack some personal things. She says, speaking of which, what is this? She picks up a photo, and shows it to him. He says, it’s nothing. She laughs, saying, it’s something. Is it him? He nods, and says he was a kid. She says, he danced?  He tells her, there was a time when he wanted to be breakdance champ. She asks how old he was, and he says, sixteen. Thank God before camera phones. She doesn’t believe him, and asks if he can still do it. He says, it was a long time ago. She says she has to see this, and he says, no, she doesn’t. She says she does, and puts music on, shoving him off the couch. He dances for her, ending with the splits, and it’s pretty impressive. She applauds. He says he’s rusty, and I say, I thought he was Charles. BA-DUM-CHH! Candace says he really can dance, and he tells her that she’ll never see it again. The President shouldn’t be doing that. She says he’s a different kind of President. He’s the cool one.

Not-Landon comes in, and Charles says, he didn’t see that, right? Not-Landon says, no, he didn’t, but Candace says, he’s lying, and he says he is. Charles has a phone call, and Candace says she’ll go upstairs so she doesn’t hear top secret information. Not-Landon tells Charles, it’s getting worse. Charles asks where Landon is, and not-Landon says, on the phone. Charles doesn’t even say, hi, how are ya? He tells Landon, let him make one thing clear. If the story hits, and Landon can’t spin it, he’s fired. He told Charles that’s what he’s good at. He hangs up, and not-Landon says, he tried to. Charles says, did he ask not-Landon anything? Not-Landon says, no sir. Charles says they have to get out to DC. Not-Landon suggests a flight back to Savannah for Candace, and Charles says, did he ask not-Landon to do anything? Not-Landon says, no, but he thinks it’s best. Charles thinks it’s best not-Landon do what he’s told. Methinks not-Landon is going to be on the unemployment line along with Landon.

At the police station, Veronica watches a group of thugs being brought in. The last one gives her the eye, so I assume these are the guys she hired.

Jeffrey gets ready to leave David’s house. David asks where he’s going, and Jeffrey says he’s not staying there, but he’s not going back to Justin. As long as David is with Veronica, he means it. David says, it’s different. Jeffrey knows how angry he is. He wants to take the law into his own hands. Jeffrey says, then do it, and David says he won’t for the same reason Jeffrey pulled that boy off Veronica. Jeffrey says he didn’t want to see Justin get hurt. David says he doesn’t understand the situation. There are several major legal situations that they need her help with. If he can’t keep her calm and working with him, everything will go to hell. Jeffrey says that’s the same reason he’s trying with Justin. Justin’s life went to hell because of her. David says Justin could kill him, and Jeffrey says, maybe death better than being part of this family. David tells him not to say that. Things are bad, but not that bad. He’s on verge of being pushed over the edge. He’s tested every day, but once the legal situations are resolved, he’ll let her go. He promises she won’t bother them again, and they can live there in peace. Just stay. Jeffrey says, okay, and David thanks him. He doesn’t know what he’d do if he lost Jeffrey. They hug.

David’s phone rings, and he says, damn. Jeffrey says, her? and David says, yeah. Jeffrey goes upstairs to unpack, and David says they’ll talk later. David answers, and Veronica says she needs to talk to him. She’s at the police station. She needs him to meet her at her house tonight. There’ll talk by the pool, not in the living room. He knows why. He says he’ll be there.

Veronica waits. Justin is brought in. He says he told them she’s lying. Veronica says, is she? He has no idea what he’s done. Bye, girl. Enjoy jail. She bets he thinks twice before hitting a woman. Rainbows and unicorns, baby. He tells her, go to hell, and she says, him first. He says he’s been there since he met her. She says he hasn’t been there yet. One of the arresting cops says, he’s an officer. He’ll be in a cell alone. He won’t be touched. Justin asks if they can speed it up. As he’s led away, Veronica says, bye, Tootsie. Enjoy yourself. Life in tight pants. You better work. She laughs.

David tells Jeffrey he’s going out. Jeffrey says, to meet mom? and David says, to keep the situation under control. Jeffrey tells him that Madison said he needs to keep the bandages changed, and David asks him to help do that when he gets back. Jeffrey thinks he should have Madison do it. He knows David is mad at him, but he meant the best. He thinks David should have him come back. David tells Jeffrey to have Madison call.

Hanna and Benny get home. Wow the house looks very different during the day with no cars in front of it. They see flowers on the porch; a bouquet of yellow roses (which I think means an apology). Benny says they’re from Derrick, and Hanna throws them down. Benny asks what Derrick did, and she tells him, don’t worry about it. They go inside. Benny asks again what Derrick did, and Hanna says she’s going to ask Kathryn about the money, and that’s all she’s saying. Her phone rings, and Hanna asks if Kathryn got it. Kathryn says, no. It’s not making sense. Jim said it’s not his company. She thinks it’s a mix-up, and she’ll get to the bottom of it. Hanna says let her know. She’s sorry; it’s a lot of money. Kathryn knows she didn’t do anything, and she’ll find out what’s going on. Benny asks what that was about, and Hanna says, it’s not Jim’s company. He says, that’s crazy, and Hanna says, maybe. He says, it must be a mix-up at the bank. She says, maybe, and goes upstairs.

Benny calls Candace, and asks where she is. She says, Detroit, and he asks if she’s with him. She says she is, and asks, what’s going on? He says they tried to give the money back, and the bank said it had been sent back already; something about a reverse wire request. She’s like, what? She says, from the Cryer company? and he says, yes. She says, okay. So he got his money, but Benny says, no. It doesn’t make sense. Jim was just there threatening him again. Candace says he’d better not threaten Benny again, and why do that if he’s got the money? She has to call him back.

Candace looks on her laptop, and sees the money in the account. (To refresh your memory, the Cryer company is the dummy account Candace created to get the money in the first place.)

RK slips into Veronica’s house. She sees him, and says, get the hell out. He says he needs her help. They’re after him. She doesn’t give a damn; she wants him to get out, and she means it. He says the Attorney General is trying to throw him in jail. He needs a couple of days to hide out. She asks what the AG would want with him; what did he do? He says he was involved in running a prostitution ring out of the hotel. She says that’s not her problem. He says he’s loyal, and he needs help. She asks where her jewelry is. He says he messed up on that, but he’ll do anything; whatever it takes. She calls him little boy, and says he needs to get out of her house. She’s tired. It’s been a rough day, and she’s pissed off. She needs him gone. He says maybe he should have turned on Candace. She says, Candace Young? What do they want with her? RK doesn’t know, but they wanted him to turn on her. Veronica says he should have, and he says he ain’t no damn snitch. She says, he has a code. Then he needs to be locked up. She’s not going to help him. He says he’ll remember that. She tells him, do that, and don’t come back. He says, don’t worry; he won’t.

There’s a knock at the door. It’s the FBI, and RK runs upstairs. Veronica yells at him to come down. She opens the door, and says he’s upstairs, but they ask her to come with them. She says, why? On what grounds? Head guy says she can come for questioning, or they can arrest her and take her in. She asks again, on what grounds? He says they’re not the local police. They’re the FBI. They’ll think of something. Now get her ass in the car. She asks if they’re arresting her. He says they can, and she says she’ll have all their badges. Just let her get her purse. He says, no; she won’t. She says, it’s been that kind of day. She’s sick of all of them. Let’s tighten it up.

RK comes downstairs. He can’t believe his luck. He closes the door quietly, and says, that’s more like it. He’s going to make some changes around there. He goes to see what in the kitchen. I’m wondering what’s going to happen when David shows up, and he’s throwing a party or something.

Justin tells Officer Ray, come on. Ray knows he didn’t do this. Ray puts him in a cell, alone, and says he’s just doing his job. Justin asks if Ray can call someone for him. Jeffrey Harrington. Ray says he can’t do that. Justin knows who Jeffrey’s mom is. Justin says, so what? and Ray says, sorry, man.

The guys in the next cell stare at Justin. Justin asks what the hell they’re looking at? Because he’s stupider than he looks, Justin gets too close to the dividing bars, and a dude grabs him. They manage to beat him through the bars.

Next time, Justin is pantsed (yes, that’s how I meant to spell it), Jim isn’t leaving until he gets his money, Scott calls Jim, Candace calls Jim, and David tells Veronica that he wants to kill her. Three episodes left to the season.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Provence, France. A trip which will, no doubt, be wasted on this group. The women gather their luggage. In her interview, LisaR says she loves France, but has never been to Provence. She thinks it’s going to be magical. Teddi asks if it’s all vineyards. She’s having déjà vu. In her interview, Kyle says she loves France. Six years ago, she was in Paris. We flash back to her and LVP visiting the Eiffel Tower. Kyle says it’s weird not have LVP there. LVP kicked her out of the house, and she’s not speaking to anyone. It breaks Kyle’s heart. Denise and Camille were also coming until the last minute. We flash back to them talking about the fire on the way to the airport. LisaR says they had to evacuate, and it doesn’t look good. She and Teddi can’t get phone service in the car.

They gasp, seeing the gated entrance to Chateau Whatever It Is. The staff is lined up on the steps, and Erika says it feels like they’re in a movie. She never felt so rich. Local Host Pascha greets them, and they meet the staff. Dorit feels like she’s be living like a princes in a castle. Pascha hopes they have a wonderful stay, and gives them the tour. I salivate over both the house and its furnishings. She explains the house has been mostly restored to the historic model. It was built in 1612, and Erika is sure previous guests are still floating around. The Great Lawn looks like something at Buckingham Palace. Kyle says it’s seventeen acres, and fully staffed. The women are going to be waited on hand and foot, from breakfast until bedtime.

The group is shown their rooms, which are no less than amazing. In LisaR’s interview, she says they usually stay at a five-star hotel, which she likes, since she gets her space. If there’s a conflict, there’s nowhere to run. I’m confused. Nowhere to run on seventeen acres? They shout at each other through the open casement windows.

Kyle tells the chef about the fire in LA, and how people had to evacuate. She explains that two of the friends they’d expected aren’t coming. The chef gives her a run-down of the dinner menu. The women meet in the sitting room or whatever, and even though they’d said it was casual, they’re dressed up. In her interview, Dorit says, the French countryside, and no glam? But contrary to popular belief, she can travel without her glam squad. They order drinks. In Erika’s interview, she says, don’t tell her they’re going to be casual. Bullsh*t. France equals glamour.

Kyle calls Denise, who still can’t get an update about the evacuated areas. Kyle asks if the fire has been contained, and Denise says it hasn’t. Teddi asks about her house, but Denise doesn’t know. The whole thing sounds horrible. Kyle says they’re thinking about her, and asks her to check in. Dorit says, it’s so scary. Kyle calls Camille, who says she just found out her house is okay. She says, last night was insane. She’s never experienced a massive evacuation. In her interview, she says the fire was moving quickly. She grabbed her important documents, and a Wyeth painting, and they caravanned down the street. Their lives have been misplaced. I can understand this a little, having been through a flood. She tells Kyle, they don’t know what do, or where to go, but they’re safe. She doesn’t want to be a buzzkill. Kyle says everyone loves her. Dorit says, thank God she’s safe. In her interview, LisaR says it’s a relief to know they’re safe. Knowing their friends are suffering, they have to make the best of things, since there’s not much they can do. Teddi reveals that her childhood nickname was Butch because she was tomboyish. Kyle says she was Kyle Bitchards. We find out Dorit stole the family car at thirteen, and outed herself by leaving traces of white chocolate in the backseat. She says she was grounded for about ten years.

Dinner is served, and they sit. In Kyle’s interview, she says she doesn’t care where she is in the world, she’s ordering a margarita. She’s not a rosé person. Teddi says, Butch wants her margarita on the rocks. Her drink is a little intense. Erika doesn’t handle strong drinks at all. LisaR tells them that she has one thing to say, which probably means fifty. She had a good time playing Erika Jayne. Teddi says she thought LisaR lost her mind. Kyle says Erika doesn’t behave like that, and it was weird. LisaR agrees it out of place, but it broke ice with Kim. There was an elephant in the room. Actually a bunny.

In Dorit’s interview, she says, who doesn’t want a private chef and being served? It’s luxury to the nth degree. I’m in. Erika says she’s a little drunk. Kyle wants them know they’re effing amazing. They can all be batsh*t crazy, and things can turn in a second, but she’s thankful they’re there. In Erika’s interview, she says the five of them have been through some stuff on these trips. We flash back to some of the stuff they’ve been through. She says, this place is magical, like some sh*t out of a storybook. She wonders if the drinks are strong or she’s lost her mojo. She might even need a piece of bread.

At 5 am, Dorit is up. She feels sick to her stomach. She woke up to a video of Camille’s full of fire. They’d just spoken to her, and everything was fine. What happened? Teddi shows her what Denise posted. She got all the animals out, but everyone is in gas masks. She feels better about Denise, but her heart is breaking for Camille. In her interview, Teddi says, your mind starts going to the worst place, and you start thinking of your family. She wishes she could turn it off.

At breakfast, Erika asks if she’s the only one wildly hungover. She’s drunk from the night before, and is really hurting. She’s miserable, and at breakfast with effing sunglasses on. Dorit thought she was just being fabulous. Teddi says her coach’s house burned down. She got out with only her PJs. Erika asks if the fire has been contained, but Dorit and Teddi don’t think so. The wind shifted. Kyle is freaking, and says Camille has nothing. LisaR says Camille went from her happiest day to being devastated. Teddi says her house is in good shape. Pascha comes in, and Kyle asks about going to a market. Pascha suggests a local one. The women get ready, and head out.

Erika takes pictures. LisaR wants to focus on the moment. They go into the town, and Kyle says it’s like Amsterdam. She tries on some hats. LisaR says she isn’t ready for cheese. Kyle haggles, and feels overwhelmed. LisaR relents, and eats cheese. Kyle and Dorit become lost to shopping. In Kyle’s interview, she says she’s not leaving without a beret. LisaR wants coffee, and they stop at a café.

Erika seems to be the only one who is fluent in French. They order drinks and peruse the menu. LisaR tells them that Amelia has chosen to study nutrition, wellness, and psychology. After sharing her story, she became an activist. In LisaR’s interview, she says Amelia took something that was an issue for her, and turned it into a tool for helping people. We flash back to Amelia says she doesn’t want this to happen to other people. LisaR says Amelia is still getting through her life, and figuring it out. She’s an addict. Teddi says the fact that Amelia is openly talking about it, means she wants to actually fix it. She asks if they knew before she told them, and LisaR says they saw the best doctors. One feels it’s genetic. Kyle says, she never talks about this; not even to her daughters, but when she was younger, she had her own problems. She gets weepy.

She says she never wanted it to be in her daughters’ heads. When she was seventeen, she was on TV. Her sisters were tiny, cute, blonde, blue-eyed, and skinny. She said she didn’t like her wardrobe on the show, and they said if she lost weight, she’d get a better one. The more compliments she got, the less she ate. She’d take V8, pour it in a bowl, heat it up, and call it her food for the day. She weighed 99 pounds. Some days, all she had was six almonds for food. Her sisters and the models were skinny, and she was self-conscious. In her interview, LisaR says since Amelia opened up, she couldn’t pretend she didn’t know what it feels like. Teddi thinks if you share with your kids, they’ll share with you. LisaR says if she tells them, that doesn’t mean they’ll do it, but Kyle doesn’t want to put it into their heads. LisaR says they already have it in their heads from the world, which is a good point. Dorit suggests having a chat. In Kyle’s interview, she says she was terrified, and wanted them to have a healthy body image. She never says things like she feels fat. She just wants them to be healthy. LisaR says she’s done an amazing job raising her daughters. In Erika’s interview, she thinks it’s brave for Kyle to admit that she struggled with an eating disorder. Erika tells the others, she never had that. She was always a stick figure. Now she’s the heaviest she’s ever been. With all that dancing, I’m sure a lot of it is muscle. In her interview, she says she thinks it’s easier to be vulnerable in front of each other, since they don’t think they’ll be judged, or jabbed at, or the information used at a later date. It feels like a safe space because LVP isn’t there. Oh come on. Can they leave her alone now? They got what they wanted. Move on.

The go to Pont Something-or-Other, and tour the city. The walk on a bridge to nowhere, that extends to the middle of a river. Erika thinks the river kept destroying the bridge, and they just quit rebuilding. She says, it’s a privilege to be on a vacation in Europe. It’s thousands of years of history. Places you think about for the rest of your life.

Dorit calls home, and video chats with the kids. LisaR tries to talk French to Harry. She tells Harry about Denise, Camille, and the fire. She says, Camille lost her house. It burned down. Harry says, it’s tragic. It will be horrible to find out what other friends lost their homes. LisaR says the fire affected many, many of the people they know; whole neighborhoods. Her heart is broken. She says, thank God everyone is okay. At the end of the day, things are replaceable. Erika says hi to Harry, and the women meet downstairs

LisaR declares she likes the drinks. Ooh. I love Kyle’s skirt. It has strings of beads hanging from it like fringe. Everyone looks fantastic. LisaR thinks their group likes looks that are fabulous, except Denise. We flash back to Denise’s casual look, and in her interview, LisaR imitates Denise, saying those bitches are making her raise her game, and she doesn’t want to. She tells them, everyone in the group has style – and Teddi is coming around. In her interview, she says, Teddi raised her fashion game from a year ago. We see a clip of Kyle helping her do some shopping. In Teddi’s interview, she says she didn’t think her style had changed that much, but people keep saying she’s bringing her A-game. She’d thought she’d always been bringing it.

LisaR says, drunk Rinna is here! and kicks her leg in the air like she just don’t care.

At the restaurant, Teddi apologizes in advance for their presence. She orders a skinny margarita, and Kyle is like, not in France. They talk about favoring their dads, and Erika says her father is from El Salvador, which surprises everyone. In Erika’s interview, she says, it doesn’t mean anything. She never meant anything to them, so it’s just part of her heritage. Several of them order hamburgers, and in her interview, Dorit wonders, if they could order anything other than burger in France. She gets it though. They’re American.

Kyle asks LisaR about the Erika Jayne act. She thought it was weird. LisaR says, because she was playing a character, it helped her face Kyle’s sister. In Kyle’s interview, she says using the Erika Jayne persona allowed LisaR to call her sister the c-word. LisaR needs to take responsibility for her own words, since she’s the queen of owning it. LisaR says it flew out of her mouth. It happened, but it led to sitting and having a conversation where they decided to move on and move forward. We flash back to them kissing and making up. Kyle says it seemed inappropriate, since Erika wouldn’t talk like that to anybody. We flash back to (I think) Erika’s first season, when she wore the c-word necklace. LisaR says it was just her interpretation. Teddi says it would hurt her feelings. LisaR says she knows Erika’s feelings aren’t hurt, and Erika says, not at all. Kyle asks if it isn’t a betrayal of who she is. Erika says, it’s just a persona. Teddi says LisaR was hiding behind a character, and it was confusing. LisaR wonders what issue Teddi is having with her, and in her interview, says it’s not her issue, and none of Teddi’s business. Teddi says, it doesn’t make her like LisaR any less, and LisaR says she doesn’t care if Teddi likes her or not. Don’t put it all on her.

Even LisaR realizes how bad that sounds, and says, well, she does care. Teddi says she does. Otherwise, why are they hanging out? In Dorit’s interview, she doesn’t know why Kyle and Teddi are baiting Erika to say something. She thinks Teddi is Kyle’s henchwoman. We flash back to Teddi explaining (Teddi-splainin’) Kyle’s feelings after the concert. In LisaR’s interview, she says if not for Kim, they would have laughed and applauded. It’s just sensitive because Kyle’s sister is involved. Well, yeah… Kyle says everyone was uncomfortable, even Erika, who is starting to look bored at this point. Kind of like I do. Erika says it seems the two of them – meaning LisaR and Kim – came to a resolution.  In Erika’s interview, she says she’s not annoyed that LisaR used the Erika Jayne persona to heal her wound, but she’s annoyed that they’re not letting it go. Dorit says it’s an alter ego who’s free to be whatever. Erika says it’s a performance persona, and quit trying to bait her into the conversation. In Teddi’s interview, she says when she’s uncomfortable, she wants to discuss it immediately. Erika wants to shut it down before it starts. She tells Erika that she’s not being an idiot. She’s trying to have a conversation about something she doesn’t understand. Erika says she’s glad they’ve moved on. In her interview, Erika says if she was going to be upset, she’d have been upset weeks ago, not in France. Stop ruining her night. Kyle says now Erika is upset with them. Erika says she’s okay. In Kyle’s interview, she’s struggling to believe that Erika wouldn’t be embarrassed by being used as an excuse to be rude to someone. I’m struggling to believe anyone can make this big a deal out of pretty much everything.

LisaR says, anyone feel like dessert?

Next time, a helicopter ride, the women do (very good) imitations of each other, Denise goes back to the rubble that was her house, Teddi can’t be a moral compass for everyone, and Erika feels bullied.

👠 No Phobias Here…

While I’ve amassed a nice tea collection, it’s late and it’s been a long week, even though it’s not half over. So I chose the article that says it all after tonight’s RHOBHLVP and her crew at the Pride parade. Despite her Wives estrangement, she’s not letting any moss grow on her.

June 9, 2019 – Victor Finds Daniel, Close As a Mother, NY Baby, About That Cup & Pressured

Standard

What I Watched Today

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

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Victor makes a video. He says if they’re watching this, it means he didn’t make it. Do what he couldn’t, and know that he tried. He gets out of the truck, and starts walking.

He sees a cat, and stops to pet it. A zombie comes up behind him, but gets impaled on a pointy fence. While Victor is looking at it, he feels a presence behind him. He says, take a breath. It’s Daniel. Victor tells him that he might be inclined to pull the trigger, but they can they just take a breath? Daniel says he still talks too much, and tells Victor, turn around slowly. Daniel points out that his kitty, Skidmark, likes Victor. Victor says, he has good taste, and Daniel says, he licks his own ass. Why is he there? Victor knows they parted under difficult circumstances, but things changed. Daniel shoots a zombie ambling up behind Victor, and tells him, come inside. It’s not safe to talk out there.

John tells Alicia, whatever Al came to check out, it’s gone. It must have slipped free. Maybe she’s just out chasing a story. Alicia asks if he really believes that. He guesses he wants to, but honestly, no. Morgan calls to them. They join him, and see the supplies are gone. Alicia says, whoever took Al, took the weapons and ammo, and probably had a vehicle. She says she should have stopped Al, but Morgan says, no regrets. Alicia says she should have known. Some zombies are wandering around, and Alicia dispatches them with her pointy thing.

June tends to Luci’s wound, and gives her something to take the edge off. Luci says she can’t feel her fingers, but June says, it’s normal, and it will take a while for things to heal. Luci wonders when she’ll be able to play the accordion. June is surprised she plays, and Luci says she’s thinking of learning. June tells her, rest. John comes back, and says there’s no sign of Al. They scavenged what they could. He says they found these, showing them some notebooks. Polar Bear might have something they can use. He also found The Little Prince, and tells Luci, any book that can survive a hurricane and a plane crash might be worth hanging on to. I had two favorite books go under water during Hurricane Sandy, and came out totally dry. True story. He says Alicia and Morgan headed north. He thinks they should go in the opposite direction. June says she can’t leave Luci alone, but Luci says she won’t be alone. She can work the radio with one hand. John gives her a gun, and tells her, try to track Victor on the radio, and find out if he heard Al’s message.

Daniel tells Victor not to touch anything, and leads him into a hangar that has a bunch of various vehicles in it. Victor ask where he got all this, and Daniel says he inherited it. Victor asks, from whom? and Daniel says he’s in no position to be asking questions. What does he want? Victor says he was told Daniel may have a small plane. Daniel asks who told him, and Victor says, Al. Daniel says, the journalist? and Victor says that’s how found Daniel. Daniel says, small world. Victor says, and they’re responsible to those who remain. Daniel knows them. Daniel says, Madison? Victor says, she’s gone, but Alicia remains. They need to help their friends. Daniel asks why Victor can’t be honest. It’s for him, and no one else. He knows who Victor is. Victor says Daniel doesn’t have to believe him. Does he have a radio?

Morgan and Alicia come across three cars blocking the road. DANGER KEEP OUT is written on them in red. Morgan says, more radiations signs. Luci radios, and says she knows how to make contact. Morgan says she’ll come through this. Alicia says she doesn’t know what this is, and Morgan says it’s not on her. She says she keeps everyone safe, and he handles the rest. He says she’s the one who decided that, but they’ll all do whatever it takes to find Al.

Alicia goes to a truck and says, this one. It’s loaded with supplies. They walk into the woods. Morgan hears a couple of crows, and follows the sound. They’re in a cage, hanging above two zombies, just out of reach. Morgan taps his stick, then whacks the first one with it. He steps toward the other one, and I say, oh sh*t! as he steps into a trap, and a rope tightens around his ankle. He falls, along with the other zombie, but someone shoots the zombie. A woman in biohazard gear stands over him, and tells him to take off his clothes.

She says she doesn’t want to shoot him. Just do what she says. Talking is bad, and move as little as possible. She takes his stick, and he says he needs to get it back; it’s important. She tells him, remember what she said about talking, and points her gun at him. Alicia grabs her from behind, and gets her down on the ground, holding her pointy thing at the woman’s throat. Alicia asks, where is she? The woman says, who? and Alicia says, a friend. The woman says she doesn’t know, and wants to keep her from losing another friend. Let her help. Morgan agrees, and Alicia releases the woman. Alicia asks, why? and the woman says the coolant system failed in a pressurized water reactor. They tried to keep it humming, but it disbursed dangerous particles. They might be on Morgan, who needs to be decontaminated. Morgan asks, how? and she says she’ll show him at her truck. Alicia says she could be lying. The woman introduces herself as Grace, and says she’s telling the truth. Morgan tells Alicia to let her go. Alicia does, but says she’s keeping Grace’s gun. Grace says she still needs Morgan to take his clothes off.

Morgan gets in a portable shower. Grace tells him, scrub down, but not hard, and don’t forget to get under his nails. He also has to take off his wedding ring, and rinse each foot before it hits the ground. She’s sorry about the selection of clothing. Laundry day is next week.

Grace wants her gun back, but Alicia still wants to hang on to it. Grace asks, what happened? and Alicia says their friend went missing. Grace says she can help them look, as soon as she take care of him. She indicates a corpse in plastic. She looks at some bagged cylinders, and says they’re dosimeters. They measure the exposure to radiation. Alicia asks if it’s safe to be there, and Grace says, on this side. Alicia asks if she’s responsible for the roadblocks, and she says, the signs, but the dead on the side of the road aren’t hers. She stays away from him, and they should too. She says they must have come from the plane that crashed, and Alicia says they handled it. Grace says it must have attracted zombie attention, and asks how many they killed. Alicia says, too many to count. Grace says they need to go to the crash site; it could be contaminated too. So could their friend.

Morgan calls John and June to tell them about the contaminated radiator, explaining about the zombies wearing dosimeters around their necks. John says, this place keeps getting friendlier. June says that’s why they need to be there, and John says, a little bit of sunshine in a dark place. They see a sign by the side of the road that says Camp Cackleberry, and June says it was on the car the kids were driving. It’s where they’re from. Maybe they went back.

They walk until they get to the camp. June calls for the kids, but John says, they don’t want be found. She says maybe they do. When she ran, she hoped he’d find her. John asks why she ran in the first place. She says partly because she was scared he wouldn’t come. It was easier keep moving than face the possibility that he wasn’t out there. They find tons of shell casings, and June says, someone called this place home. They hear a sound like someone banging on something. They keep walking, and see some cabins. They look inside, and zombies clamor at the window.

Victor tries the radio, but nothing. He tells Daniel, the signal isn’t strong enough. They crashed on the other side. Daniel asks why Victor wasn’t with them, and Victor says someone had to clear the runway. Daniel says the selfish someone had to be him. Victor says he did it for his friends. Daniel says the last time he heard that, he got shot in the face. Victor says he’s not the same man he was in Mexico. Daniel says he does have a new haircut. Victor asks if he doesn’t think a man can change, and Daniel says, some men. Victor knows he’s done terrible things, and might not be able make up for them, but he’s trying. He hopes Daniel can believe that. Daniel says, let him do that, and takes over the radio.

Grace’s dosimeter goes off, and she tells Morgan and Alicia to leave the plane. A lone zombie comes by, and Morgan says he’s got this, stabbing it in the eye. He says, about his stick, but Grace says he can’t have it back. Wood is porous, and there’s no way to clean it. She says they should keep moving. She has no traps over there. It’s the only thing keeping the zombies from crossing over. She says they have to put up more fencing, but Alicia says she’s wasting time chasing the dead. Their friend is alive. She says it’s not safe there, and Morgan says they don’t have time for this. They decide to meet at the truck, and Grace tells Morgan to grab some tape.

Zombies fall in the mud, and writhe around. Alicia says, sh*t, which is what we’d all say. She can’t tell which ones are wearing a dosimeter, and Grace tells her, get away. Morgan duct tapes the cuffs tighter on Grace’s suit. Alicia stabs each zombie as it comes forward from the mud. Ooh two at once. Nice move. Grace asks for her gun, and Alicia tosses it to her, but then slips in the mud. Alicia tangles with a zombie, and yells for them to hurry. Grace shoots the remaining zombies, and Alicia gets the one that’s grappling with her in the neck,

The road is littered with muddy downed zombies.

Grace says Alicia could be exposed, and she has no more water. Alicia can’t decontaminated. She knows they want to find their friend, but their friend wouldn’t want her to get sick and die. She picks up a dosimeter, and puts it in a bag. Morgan says she knew them. She says she worked at plant, and when things went south, they kept the thing running. The employees brought in their families when things got worse. They had supplies for months, and the place was designed to keep terrorists out. When the cities fell, and didn’t need power, she couldn’t see things going back to the way they were. She should have evacuated then. Morgan asks, how many are still left? and she says, sixty-three. She couldn’t take care of them then, so she has to now. John radios Alicia. She tells him not to touch anything. They’re on their way.

They go to the cabins, and Grace measures for radiation. She sees that bodies had been burned asks if they touched anything, or breathed in any ash. They could be sick. Morgan asks if fire doesn’t get rid of the radiation, and she says it releases it into the air. Grace looks inside. Morgan say she doesn’t have to do this. She could be contaminated. She says that’s why no one else can kill them. These people were exposed when they thought they were protecting themselves. The people inside who were exposed thought they were protecting themselves.

Luci asks if Victor copies, but gets nothing. She finally gets through, and Victor asks where she is. She says a truck stop. She was hurt in the crash. Al is missing. They found someone there; people they tried to help, but this place… They can’t stay long. Victor says he found him. She knows him. Alicia knows him. Suddenly, there’s only static, and they get cut off. Luci hears or feels something, and she gets up. Victor asks if Daniel believes him now. They need help; it’s worse than he thought. Daniel says, they do. Follow him.

Luci goes outside someone. She asks if someone is there. She walks out a little ways, and looks around. I ask, why are you doing this? She sees the radio tower has fallen over.

June gets in a car. She tells John, it has a lot of seats; room for kids. Luci radios, and tells June that Victor got the message, and he’s getting a plane. The wind took out her antenna though, and they got cut off. June asks if she’s outside. She shouldn’t be on her feet. She tells Luci, get back inside, and lock the doors. She says she’s heading back. Zombies start to appear, and Luci gets out her gun, but she can’t focus. They come closer, and she shoots until she’s out of bullets. I’m freaking. She runs, barely getting inside, and slamming the door. She locks it, and slides down next to it. The zombies scrape at the door. Luci waits.

Morgan asks if Alicia is okay. He says he used to think killing was the only thing he could do. She says it is the only thing she can do. She hasn’t helped anyone. She hasn’t found anyone on the tapes. She couldn’t stop Al from going missing. Everyone she kills is a help. Morgan says it used to be like that for him. He was lost; stuck. You don’t know until someone tells you. So he has to tell her. He’s sorry he didn’t say something before. Things have not always gone the way he’d hoped. He tells her that she’s not locked in. The door opens. There is a way out. She says, to what? He says there’s no way to really protect people. You can’t put a weapon between you and losing people. He tried, but the way out is opening the door to people, to possibility, to the hurt that will happen. That’s what he did. Then his life started again. Hers will too.

Grace says she going to the caverns near the plant, and burying the bodies there. Morgan says she’s taking his stick, and she says she is. She tells them not to stay long. it’s not safe. Morgan says they can help her find the rest. After they find Al and the kids, they’ll come back. They have a plane coming. She says she can’t. After the accident happened, she went back into the plant. She was careful, but she was still exposed. She’s not risking anyone else’s well-being. Morgan asks how long she has, but she doesn’t know. He says if she changes her mind, they’re on the other side of the walkie on channel seven. She says she’s on the other side too, and she leaves. Alicia tells Morgan that he said it was going to be hard. He says, he did, and they watch Grace drive off.

June finds Luci. Luci asks, where are they? June says, who? and Luci says, the dead.

Outside, the zombies’ heads are hanging from a billboard, teeth snapping. Luci says someone is trying o scare them. June thinks they must be close to something. John says when the plane comes, they’ll find Al, find the kids, and get home.

Daniel and Victor walk outside. Victor asks where Daniel got the plane. Daniel says it’s time for Victor to leave. Victor doesn’t understand. His friends need help. Daniel says, they do, but not from him. Victor says Daniel heard Luci. Daniel says Victor told him the reason he wasn’t on the plane was because he was helping his friends, but it doesn’t look that way. They’ll manage. He’s not giving Victor the plane. He’ll just make things worse. Every time he helps, he ends up hurting the people he’s helping. No one knows it better than he does. He opens the gate, and shoots the gun in the air. He says if Victor comes back, the next one will be in his face. Victor walks out.

Gee, thanks Daniel.

Victor sees zombies in the foggy distance. He grabs a rock, and smashes the closest one’s head to a pulp. He keeps walking toward them.

Next time, Luci says they took action, a new town, and June discovers the roadblocks form a pattern.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Carly tells Sonny that she just saw her first firefly. I’m baffled, thinking she means the first ever, but she means this season. She asks if he remembers when Morgan would try to get them to follow him in. Sonny says, he didn’t want to catch them, and wanted them to follow him. That way, they could be friends. She says, he loved this time of year; school ending, and summer on the way. Sonny says, he’d leave the house, and not come back until dinner. She says, Josslyn is the same way, but not this year. There’s no excitement, no smile, no laughter. She doesn’t know what to do about it. Josslyn comes in with her guitar, and says she took an online lesson. She’s trying to build on the chords Oscar was teaching her. She plays for them.

In Tanzania, Drew comes to Kim’s room with Oscar’s ashes. He didn’t know if she wanted them in his room or hers. She downs some coffee, and he asks if she thinks that’s a good idea. They have a long hard climb ahead. She says she’ll be ready. He tells her Kilimanjaro is the biggest mountain in Africa. She says she doesn’t want to sleep.

TJ tells Jordan that he can’t believe that bastard won’t give her a kidney. Instead, he’s giving her a death sentence. She says she wants him to forgive Ryan – and forgive her.

Someone puts an injection into a sleeping Ryan’s IV. The machine starts beeping, and he wakes up. He begins to have a seizure.

Curtis sits in the waiting area. Stella sees him, and says she takes it Ryan refuses save Jordan.

Elizabeth and Finn run into Ryan’s room. Elizabeth says he’s seizing. Finn holds Ryan, asking if he okay. He asks if Ryan can hear him, and says he had a seizure. He says, don’t try talk. They’re going to take some tests to find out why it happened, and prevent it from happening again. Ryan says he’s going to die.

In a hallway, Franco takes off a pair of surgical gloves, and tosses them in the trash. Cameron asks when he became a doctor. He’s wondering what Franco needs gloves for.

Drew asks Kim, what’s wrong, aside from having to scatter Oscar’s ashes? Why doesn’t she want to sleep? She says, because when she sleeps, she dreams Oscar is still alive. It’s so real that she wakes up, and goes into his bedroom, fully expecting to see him there, and he’s not. So she’d rather stay awake. Even as much agony as it is, it’s better than losing him over and over again.

Carly loves that Josslyn is making good use of Oscar’s guitar. Josslyn says she wanted to learn before Oscar died. He was in the middle of teaching her, but she’d get impatient, and ask him to play instead. They never got very far. Sonny says she’s a natural, and they’ll get her lessons after she finishes school. She says she’d like that. She’s supposed to make plans and keep moving. Carly tells her to feel whatever she’s feeling, and come to them when she needs help. Sonny says, it will take a while to get on track. Josslyn keeps thinking about Oscar’s final words. He told her everything would be all right; that she would be all right, and she promised him that she would be Carly says she’ll get there. Take it day by day, and somehow remember to breathe. Josslyn doesn’t want to breathe. She doesn’t want to be dead, but it’s hard. She’ll do it for Oscar, and for everyone who’s supporting her. Carly feels the baby move, and asks Josslyn if she wants to feel her little brother or sister. Josslyn puts her hand on Carly’s stomach, and says she can feel it. They all smile.

Josslyn says, amazing, and a little weird. There’s a person inside Carly’s body. She asks what it feels like, and Carly says like she swallowed a bunch of butterflies. Josslyn says, stuff just got real. There’s a little life in there. Sonny says it scares him to death. There’s a little person waiting to be born, who needs to be loved and protected. He doesn’t want to fail. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world, and the most terrifying thing in the world. Carly says, true. Having a baby is crazy. Sonny says, a reminder that life goes on.

Franco tells Cameron that he was using acetone to clean up some paint. It eats at the skin. Cameron says it sounds nasty, and Franco says, cleaning up is nasty business, which is an interesting choice of words. He asks how Cameron is doing, and Cameron says, with? Franco says, Oscar’s death. He must miss his friend. Cameron says if he wants to talk about Oscar, or anything, he’ll Franco know. He leaves, and Elizabeth comes out. She tells Franco that Ryan had a seizure, and is getting tests. Franco says, good. He hopes that’s the end of him.

TJ asks what Jordan did that needs forgiveness. She says she tries not to dwell on what she’d do differently, but she’s sorry for the time she missed with him.

Stella tells Curtis that she’ll talk to Ryan, but he says, leave it be. She says she most certainly will not. He says he doesn’t want her in the same room with that twisted freak. She says if he’s going to tell her that he thinks Ryan will manipulate her, she just might be offended.

Josslyn asks how she’s supposed to not think about Oscar, and get used to him not being there. Carly says, you never get used to the absence of someone you love. You just kind of grow around it. Other people come into your life, and take up space in your heart, and one day you find yourself surrounded by friends and family. You look up, and realize you didn’t think about the loss for just a minute. You were able to let go. That minute stretches to another minute, then an hour. The hole in your heart is still there; it just aches little less. Sonny tells her to keep Oscar’s memory tucked away, and eventually it will be a comfort. He promises. Carly says, until then, her family will be there for her. They’ll always take care of her. She holds Josslyn.

Kim tells Drew that she knew losing Oscar would be the most painful experience of her life. The most unimaginable pain. She didn’t know how to prepare for it. She’s not a person who likes to be caught off guard. She’s a doctor, and like procedure and facts, but it’s not about her being doctor. She’s a mother who lost her son. Drew sits next to her, and she says she doesn’t know how to feel from one moment to the next. She doesn’t know if she’ll burst out in tears when she’s pumping gas, or come across Oscar’s coat in the hall closet and smile. (While I’ve never lost a child, I can totally identify with this.) She doesn’t know how she’s going to do this. How is she going to make the journey up the mountain to scatter their son’s ashes. Drew says he’ll tell her how; because she’s a great mother. She says she thought it would help, but she doesn’t know what do with it, or how say goodbye for last time to her only child. Drew doesn’t think you ever say goodbye, but he makes her a promise. As long as he’s alive, she doesn’t have to do it alone. They hug.

Elizabeth tells Franco the alarms went off, and she couldn’t help think it’s what Ryan deserves. He doesn’t know how she manages to be a kind and healing nurse. She says, it’s her job. She spent time with Jordan earlier, and thanked her for Franco’s award. He says it still blows him away. As sick as Jordan is, she found the energy to acknowledge him. Elizabeth says he did something heroic, but he says he didn’t volunteer, and was pretty much bitching the whole time. He’s glad Jordan coerced him though. Sometimes the end justifies the means.

Curtis says he appreciates Stella trying, but it won’t do no good. She asks how he knows. He says they’re going to fight with everything they have. Stella says he’s done everything he can and more. Let her have a go. Finn approaches them, and says he has news about Ryan.

TJ understands what Jordan had do and why. It’s not a pretty story, but somehow through it all, her, him, Curtis, and Aunt Stella are a family. Jordan thanks him, and he says he can’t lose her. He wants her to see him become a doctor and hold her grandbabies. He wants to make her proud. She hugs him, and says, he has. a million times over. There’s a knock at the door, and Finn, Stella and Curtis come in. Finn says he has something to tell them about Ryan.

Josslyn practices on the terrace. Cameron comes out, and says she’s getting better. When she builds up calluses, it will be easier. She calls him Mr. Stealth Guitar Player, and asks when he started playing. He tells her, seventh grade. He had detention, and the teacher said it would be in both their interests to keep him occupied, and keep his fingers busy. So he taught Cameron guitar. Josslyn asks why he never told anyone, and he says he didn’t think it fit his image. The teacher gave him the guitar at the end of the year, and he’s been playing ever since. He didn’t get serious until… Josslyn says, Oscar got sick. Cameron says, music can let you say things you don’t have the words to say.

Finn says Ryan’s seizure turned out to be an allergic reaction to one of his medications. Stella asks if Ryan’s kidney is still good, and Finn says it is. Ryan is conscious now, and came back charming as ever. Jordan asks if Ryan is under guard, and Finn says he can’t hurt anyone. Curtis says he’s going to get Jordan a kidney.

Elisabeth asks where Franco went earlier, and he says, Kiki’s grave. Today would have been her birthday. She says, if she’d known, she would have gone with him, but he says it was spur of the moment. He thought with Ryan in custody, he could find serenity and a way to accept what happened. She asks if he did, but he says, not at all. Ava was there, and talking to her made him realize how much rage he still has about all of it. Kiki had so much to live for; so much to give. The only value Ryan has is to maybe help save Jordan’s life.

TJ approaches Ryan’s room, where Valerie stands guard. She says he’s wasting his time. TJ says Ryan is the only one who can save his mom. Valerie can argue with him, or wish him luck. She says, good luck, and he goes in. Ryan asks if he’s come to see the wounded animal, and revel in his suffering. TJ says nothing, and Ryan says, no. He’s here for the most mundane reason of all; to beg for his mother’s life. Save it. He’s heard it all. Outside the room, Stella asks Valerie if TJ is in with him. Valerie says she tried talking him out of it, but he was determined. Stella says TJ is a wonderful young man, but he’s no match for that filth. Valerie asks if Stella thinks she is, and Stella says, watch her. Ryan says, kid, listen. Nothing less than his unconditional release and subsequent freedom will convince him to give up a kidney. Not him, his mom, not even the Mother of Dragons. It’s useless. Stella says, listen to him with his posturing attitude, ranting and raving. She tells him that he won’t be getting any rest tonight. She’s not leaving his room until Jordan gets his kidney, one way or another.

Cameron tells Josslyn that he knows the kids at school are weird, but it will stop. She says, it’s not that. She just had a deep conversation about Oscar with Sonny and her mom. She got to feel the baby move, and it was pretty cool. Cameron says, sounds good. She says she was all, life goes on, but felt like she was outside of her body, watching herself pretend be a functioning person who will someday be okay. She wasn’t lying to herself, but she doesn’t feel that way. She doesn’t want to be okay. She doesn’t want to stop thinking about Oscar, because that would be like losing him all over again.

Sonny and Carly go to Morgan’s grave. Sonny says, the first lilac of the summer. Morgan loved it because he knew summer was coming soon. Carly wishes Morgan was there. He was a great big brother. Josslyn puts up a good front, but she doesn’t want to hover. Josslyn hates it as much as Morgan did. Sonny says they know deep inside, there’s a lot of pain. Carly says Morgan could always get Josslyn to open up and be herself. She had that with Oscar too. Sonny brushes leaves from the tombstone, and says Morgan would have liked Oscar. Keep an eye out for him up there. He’s gonna need a pal.

Ryan says, the dreaded social worker. Please spare him the bleeding heart. Stella doesn’t give a flip if he mocks her. She’s a believer. He says, in what? and she says, in a higher power. A higher power we sometimes appreciate, and sometimes beg for mercy. A higher power we sometimes question, and sometimes curse. Curtis and TJ don’t understand how the stars have aligned to spare Ryan’s life and not Jordan’s. He says, only the good die young? She says he’s cheated death a few times, and it was all leading to this moment. All the horrible acts he’s perpetrated, all the victims he’s killed and damaged; every move he’s ever made, brought him to this pivotal moment. Nothing could kill him. Does he know why? He has the feeling she’s going to tell him. She says he’s obsessed with himself. He can’t bear the thought of ceasing to exist. He’s tenacious; holding on to life. If he refuses, ignores fate, and doesn’t do what cosmic forces are telling him, those forces will come together and painfully kill him. He’ll take his final breath and go straight to hell. No more quests for victims or chasing after Ava. Give up his kidney and live, or withhold it and die. The choice is his. Wow. Not what I expected.

Jordan tells Curtis the moments with him and TJ have been the happiest moments of her life. She’s happy they moved there. Curtis feels the same way. Jordan says she wanted to get her affairs in order, but she doesn’t need to. Curtis can take care of everything. He tells her, don’t give up, but she says she doesn’t have much choice. Her body can’t keep going. She loves him, and will die loving him. He says he loves her, and always will. Jordan wants him to pick up the pieces and go on living. He’ll find someone else. He says, don’t talk like that; he’s not hearing it. TJ runs in, and tells them, Ryan said yes. He’s giving Jordan his kidney. Stella got through to him. Curtis says he’d better find out. It might be a cruel joke. He leaves, and TJ tells Jordan, it’s going to be okay.

Finn asks if Ryan is consenting. Ryan says, don’t get any ideas. He’s not doing it because of Stella’s nonsense about fate and a higher power. He just wants to get her to shut up. She says, whatever works. He says, surgery without anesthesia would be less tortuous, and Finn asks if he’d like to forego the anesthesia. Ryan says, it’s called hyperbole. If he signs the forms, and he never wants to see her again. Stella says, fine with her. He says she’s the most annoying person he’s ever crossed paths with. Curtis and Stella hug.

Valerie tells Stella she was right. Ryan was no match for her. Stella tells her, don’t say that until he signs. Finn gives him the papers, and Curtis says, let’s get this ball rolling, handing Ryan a pen.

Drew tells Kim to get some sleep. He’ll be right next door. She asks if he really thinks Oscar is on the mountain. He says he can’t believe a spirit like Oscar’s could just be gone. He’s out there somewhere; wherever he wants to be. She wants to see him one more time, and know he’s okay. Her good, sweet boy out there. Drew says that’s why they’re there. All she has to do is believe.

Josslyn tells Cameron that she was thinking at the Nurses Ball. When her voice was getting thin, and she thought she’d have to stop, she looked at the crowd, and Oscar was there. He helped her through. Cameron says, amazing. He could tell Josslyn was thinking about him. Josslyn says her mom and Sonny tell her, in time, the ache will be less, and she’ll grow around Oscar’s absence. What if she doesn’t want to? No one is asking her to forget, but she doesn’t want to feel better, move on, or get over Oscar. She wants to remember how he was and is. She tells Cameron, look! Fireflies!

Sonny tells Morgan, in the middle of everything, they got incredible news. No one can take his place, but they have a new baby coming into the family. Carly says they’re going to tell the baby all about him. Sonny says, maybe the fireflies will come around and light the place up. Carly says, look! There they are!

Josslyn catches a firefly, and tells Cameron, Oscar said if you catch the last firefly of the season, and make a wish, it will come true. Maybe it works for the first one too. Cameron covers her hands with his own. She closes her eyes, and says, okay. She lets it go, and they watch. Josslyn says when she first did this with Oscar, she wished they’d fall in love, and it came true. How lucky is she? Cameron smiles.

Ryan asks if Finn realizes the most loathed man in Port Charles is about to sign a paper that says they can put him under and remove a vital organ. He’ll be vulnerable, and he wouldn’t put it past them to mess with his anesthesia. Finn says he’ll be treated with the same care and respect as every other patient. Stella says she’ll speak up for him at his sentencing. He has her word. They wait, and he finally signs, surprising us all. He throws the pen down, and everyone breathes a sigh of relief.

Tomorrow, Willow tells Chase it’s not possible, Michael says they have to be willing to do anything to get Shiloh, Harmony visits Shiloh, and Sonny tells Jason to take Shiloh’s word for it if Jason won’t take his. In other words, lots of Shiloh tomorrow.

The Haves and The Have Nots

When we last left, David was identifying what he thought to be Jeffrey’s body, and Veronica was surprised to see someone.

David says, it’s not him; it’s not his son. Madison says, no, it’s not. David gets pissed at Madison, who says the call was from that address. He’s sorry. David says he’s fired, and stomps off. Madison cries on Tisha’s shoulder.

The door opens, and Veronica sees Jeffrey. After she gets over the initial shock, she says he’s leaving there. Justin says, it was just a joke. Jeffrey tells Justin not to talk to him. Shooting a gun with a blank isn’t a joke. Jeffrey walks off, and Veronica tells Justin that Jeffrey is leaving him. Justin says, shut your mouth, bitch. She’s already taken everything from him. She says he still has his life, and Justin says, it’s nothing without Jeffrey. She says she’ll remember that. Go back in your house, girl. Justin slams the door.

Veronica follows Jeffrey to the parking lot, where she has his car blocked. A woman asks Veronica to move her car. Veronica ignores her, and says Jeffrey needs to talk to her. The woman keeps asking Veronica to move her car, and Veronica gets in her face, telling her, shut up, bitch. The woman says she’ll call building security, and Veronica says, please do. Jeffrey tells Veronica to stop blocking his car, but she says she just wants to talk to him. She asks if that boy put a gun to him and pulled the trigger, and Jeffrey says, yes. She says she and his father thought he was dead. What the hell is happening? He says, what’s happening is her moving her car. She says she’s not moving it until she’s finished, and he says they’ll stand there all day then.

The woman brings Justin over, and points out Veronica. Echoing my thoughts, Veronica says this is their security officer? Justin says he’s an officer of law. She laughs, and says he’s got to be fired. He tells her to move her car, but she says she’s not done talking to her son. Justin says her son doesn’t want to talk to her. Veronica asks if he’s been reduced to a remedial cop now. The woman tells Justin that they should call the police, and he says he is the police. Veronica says, used to be. She calls Justin a little bitch, and he cracks her across the face, asking, who’s the little bitch now? Jeffrey steps in, and Justin slams him up against a car. Veronica beats on Justin with her bag, and the woman says she’s calling the real police. Jeffrey gets Justin in a choke hold, and David shows up. He asks, what the hell is going on? and separates them.

Veronica tells David, that thing hit her. He asks if Jeffrey is all right, and Veronica says she was the one who was hit. David tells her to stop it and calm down. Jeffrey says she wouldn’t move her car. Veronica says that boy hit her and David’s precious son, and Jeffrey let him do it. Jeffrey says he didn’t. Veronica wishes Justin had killed Jeffrey’s ass. Jeffrey can’t believe what she said, and she says it slapped her, and Jeffrey took his sweet time intervening. She can beat Justin better than Jeffrey. David tells her again to calm down, and she says he’s on this queen’s side. It doesn’t matter what happened to her; just like before. She says they can all kiss her ass, and gets in her car. She points at Justin and says, you, little girl hit the wrong bitch. You’ll see.

David asks, what happened? Justin says, his son, and David says get out of his face. Justin says David should pay him for slapping that bitch, since he can’t. Jeffrey tells Justin to go, and Justin says Jeffrey’s whole family is screwed up. Like Jeffrey doesn’t know this already. David says they thought Jeffrey was shot. He can’t see that boy again. Jeffrey says, but David can see Veronica. David says, that boy is deadly, and Jeffrey says, and mom isn’t? Jeffrey is forcing his hand. He asks Jeffrey to come home, and Jeffrey says he’ll get his things. He’s not staying there, but he’s not staying with David either. David says he can’t tell Jeffrey what’s going on with Veronica, but it’s not what he thinks. Meet him at home, and he’ll explain. Jeffrey relents, and says he’ll be there.

Wyatt paces in his room. He looks out, and sees RK coming back with the car – and the coke. RK gets out of the car, and does a little dance. Wyatt asks where the hell he’s been, and RK says, around. Wyatt tells him, throw the stuff up, but RK says, throw the money down. RK decides to knock on door, and see if anyone is home. He knocks and Wyatt flies down the stairs, yelling, he’s got it. Jim says he’ll get it. RK comes in, and Jim asks if he just walked in. RK took his wife’s car. RK says he did, but she said he could. Jim tells RK that he said he couldn’t. How did he get the keys. RK points to Wyatt, and says, his boy. Jim asks why Wyatt did that, and RK echoes, yeah, why? Jim tells him, shut up and get the hell out of his house. Wyatt says he’s stuck there, and wants RK to hang out. Jim tells RK to give him the keys and get out. Wyatt jets back upstairs.

Wyatt says goes back out on the balcony, and tells RK he’s got the money. RJ says he ain’t doing this with him, but Wyatt says he has a watch worth six grand. RK tells him, get it, and Wyatt goes into Kathryn’s room. He takes the watch, and tosses it down. He tells RK, throw it up. RK says, no, and starts to walk away. He turns back, saying he was just messing with Wyatt, and tosses the bag up. Nice catch. Wyatt says, this is it? RK says give him more jewelry, and he’ll get more product. He works at he Artisian; call him there.

The Presidential motorcade pulls up at Charles’s house mansion. He tells Candace he’ll show her around. She’s impressed, and says, it’s modern classic. She wouldn’t have figured it. He says that’s him too. She sees a picture of his wife, and says she was beautiful. He thanks her, and asks if she wants a drink. Candace says, wine, if he has it, and he pours a glass of red for both of them. She marvels over the art, and Charles tells her that his wife painted them. She says, he misses her; he says her name in his sleep. He says, like what she does with her son, and she says they’re both in the same boat. He guesses they are, and she says, it’s good they have each other. He says, exactly right, and thanks her for being there. She says for the first time in her life, she feels like she can breathe. He says that makes two of them… since his wife died. He doesn’t want to lose her, and she says she’s not going anywhere. He says, it’s not going to be easy. She says they have each other. He tells her that he’s just getting a few personal things for him and the kids, and she asks if she can help. He says he’ll show her the rooms.

Back at the hotel, Scott places the drink order that’s code for ordering a prostitute. RK says the drink doesn’t sound appealing (and it doesn’t), but Scott says it’s what he likes. He’s tired, horny, and thirsty. RK says the hotel can help him with being tired, and he can help with thirsty, but horny he doesn’t know. Scott says he must know the spots, and RK tells him to talk to Rocky. Scott says, what if he wanted a threesome or foursome? RK says he’s heard of those things being arranged, and gets Scott’s room number. He asks if he should bill it to the room, but Scott says he has ten grand, and wants RK, Rocky, and some random woman he points out, to come to the room. RK says, two guys and a girl? Scott asks if he didn’t say he was a freak. RK says give him an hour.

RK goes behind the bar, and tells Rocky that he was offered ten grand. Rocky says, to do what? and RK says, to get with the two of them and her. Rocky says she’s not a working girl, but RK says, don’t worry about that. He’s going to rob the dude’s ass. Rocky says the guy looks smart, and RK says, not to him. It doesn’t matter. Rocky thinks they should go together. RK tells him to ask Broderick to cover the bar. Broderick, who I again was calling Roderick. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me and names, but it happens IRL too. I wish everyone would just wear name tags. Rocky says, let’s make some money.

Rocky tells Broderick, it looks like they got an easy ten grand. A guy wants him and RK, and a girl. Will he watch the bar? Broderick says, sure, and Rocky asks what’s up with him? Broderick says, nothing, but Rocky says it’s written on his face. It’s Kathryn, isn’t it? Is she still all over him like cheap suit? Broderick says she’s not why he’s upset, and tells Rocky, take care of business.

Jeffrey pulls up to David’s house mansion. Madison is sitting outside, and Jeffrey asks why he’s out there. Madison says he came to get his things. David fired him. Jeffrey asks what did he do? and Madison says he made a mistake. They got a call about a gunshot victim, and Madison thought it was Jeffrey, since it was on the same street as Justin’s place. He’s sorry. Jeffrey says it could have been him. Justin pulled a gun on him. He had two guns; one on Jeffrey, and one on himself. He said one gun had a real bullet, and the other had a blank. Justin likes playing games. He actually pulled the trigger, and almost blew out Jeffrey’s eardrum. Madison asks if Jeffrey wants him to look at it, but Jeffrey says he’s fine. Madison says, it’s serious. If he doesn’t see Jeffrey again, he can’t let Justin do this. Jeffrey says he knows it, and hears enough from his parents. He says his dad should be behind him, and lets Madison in.

Madison says he’s sorry. Jeffrey says he is too, and Madison says they could have been good together. Jeffrey says Madison doesn’t even know him, but Madison says he’s seen enough to know Jeffrey goes for troubled guys. He’s punishing himself. Jeffrey repeats that Madison doesn’t know him, and he has actually studied this. Madison says, it’s always the student who can’t see, and Jeffrey tells him, get his stuff. Madison reminds Jeffrey to get on his dad about changing the bandages, and keeping his wounds dry, and goes upstairs.

Jim calls Lloyd. He needs $75K, cash, and he’s picking it up today. Lloyd says, well.. He doesn’t have it in his account. Jim says they, but Lloyd says he’s had strict instructions from Jim’s wife. She won’t give him any money. Jim asks how much is in his account, and Lloyd says, $3400. Jim asks if Kathryn knows, and says not to tell her. He’s waiting for an $8 million transfer. He’ll call when it gets there.

Outside the kitchen, Kathryn says she’s called three times. Call her back. Jim asks who’s not calling her back, and Kathryn asks what he did. He says, nothing, and she asks if he didn’t threaten Broderick. He says he didn’t have to. Broderick isn’t interested in her. She says he seems to be, and Jim says she’s going to get her ass sued. Contrary to popular belief, sexual harassment works both ways. She tells him to go find something to do. He says he could find someone to do, but she’s out of town. Jim tells her that he needs $75K in cash, and she says that’s his problem. He says it sounds like it’s their problem. If the money doesn’t get to the Malones by the end of the day, they’ll put a hit out on their son. Kathryn asks, what kind of hit? and he says, how many kinds are there? They’ll kill him. Does she think he’s talking about a hit record? Kathryn says Wyatt bought that much in drugs? Jim says, no; they’re saying it’s for pain and suffering. She says, give it to them, and he says he doesn’t have it. He needs her to call Lloyd. She asks why she should. He says, would she like to bury another child? She says, that’s not fair, and he says, call and get the money.

Kathryn calls, and makes small talk with Lloyd. She tells him that she needs $75K cash. She’ll send her errand boy to pick it up. Lloyd might know him. His name is Jim. She tells Lloyd not to say that about Jim, and laughs. When she’s done, Jim asks if that was so difficult. She says, it better be for Wyatt, and he says, who else? She says, one of his whores, but he says, her whores are the ones currently charging those rates. Last night’s wore took her car. She says, it’s back, isn’t it? He says she’s some piece of work, and she says he’s some piece of sh*t.

Scott tells the Attorney General that he was right. The AG asks what Scott found, and Scott gives him a folder. The AG says, he knew it. Scott asks if he was robbed at gunpoint, and the AG says, something like that. Scott says the Artisian keeps security records. The head of security is ex-military, and runs it like it’s war time. He got the tapes, and also got this. He gives the AG another folder. It shows the time the AG spent in Candace’s room. The AG says, it’s perfect. Scott shows him Jim’s picture, saying he’s a judge who was running for governor, but was disgraced by his mistress. She blackmailed him for a lot of money. Her name was Candace Young. The AG says, it gets better and better. He tells Scott, set up a discreet meeting. Scott says, that could backfire, but the AG says, this man is his kind of guy.

Veronica goes to the station. For a second, I think the desk sergeant is Rick (If Loving You Is Wrong), but it’s not. Veronica says she’s been assaulted. He tells her to fill out the paperwork, but she says she just wants him arrested. It’s Officer Justin Lewis. The sergeant says, okay. She says she wants him picked up. He was harassing her son, and when she stepped in to help out, he hit her. She shows him the mark on her face, but he doesn’t see it. She tells him, look closer, and he says he needs the paperwork. She pulls the restraining order out of her bag, and says she also has a lawsuit against him. And in the event of his death, a lawsuit against his estate, his wife, and his children. If he doesn’t have Justin picked up now, his job is on the line. She asks if he’s new, and he says he is. She tells him, get someone experienced who can handle this, and he says okay, probably desperate to get rid of her.

The Chief comes out, and Veronica tells him what happened, and says to let her know when Justin is in custody. He says, it doesn’t work that way. She says wants Justin arrested, now. The Chief wants to know what he did, and she shows him an affidavit. He looks at it, and says, okay. They’ll pick Justin up. Veronica asks what jail he’ll be taken to, and the Chief says, this one. She says they can call her when Justin gets there, but he says, that’s not protocol. She says she’s not their average bitch, and he says, okay. Because by now, he’s been sufficiently terrorized enough to just say okay to anything.

Veronica makes a call. She tells someone she wants him and five others to get themselves arrested in Precinct 11. She tells him to find some friends who like to rape and maim. He needs to do it quickly. She’ll give them $5K to split. She tells him to get arrested now.

Hanna and Benny go to the bank. The officer says she still has their signatures, and leaves to get the paperwork for Benny. Benny starts to talk, but Hanna says, nothing out of his mouth. They’re giving the money back. The officer returns, and Benny signs the papers. Hanna says they want to transfer everything except $20K. The officer looks at the account, and asks how much she thinks is in there. Hanna says $8 million, plus interest. The officer says, sorry, but the account is overdrawn by $4K. There’s no money in the account. Hanna looks at Benny, and says, his damn sister.

Next time, Charles says if the story hits and Landon can’t spin it, he’s fired; Justin gets arrested, and Veronica tells him that she bets he thinks twice before hitting a woman again; Jeffrey tells David, maybe death is better than being in this family.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

We see clips of the wildfires in California. Kyle, Teddi, and LisaR are in a car on the phone with Camille, then Denise. Camille is under mandatory evacuation. Denise thinks her house might be burning down.

Five days earlier. Dorit is choosing girls for a photo shoot. Kyle fixes Portia’s hair. Teddi gives Slade a riding lesson.

Erika meets LisaR for Mexican food. Erica compliments LisaR on her CVLUX cover. LisaR says it was a fun shoot. She asks if Erika had fun at the party, and Erika says she had the best time ever watching LisaR. We flash back to them on the Ferris wheel. In her interview, Erika says she loves that LisaR came to Farrahween as Erika at Coachella. When you’re a Halloween costume, you’ve made it. I have to agree with that. LisaE says she and Kim have moved on from their feud. In LisaR’s interview, she says she always liked Kim, and it’s time for the healing to take place. She tells Erika that she’s totally cool if someone says something negative to her face, but Camille says one thing to them, then talks behind their backs. Hmm… Isn’t she doing the same thing right now? Erika says Teddi told her what happened in the van. LisaR says Camille said a couple of things about Dorit that weren’t lovely, and said some things about Teddi to Denise. In Erika’s interview, she says she understands they’re frustrated with camille. They’ve gone to her events, and they’re feeling betrayed. Erika says Camille has a beef with pretty much everyone. LisaR says, she doesn’t know she has a beef with Dorit, and Erika says, but she’s about to.

Dorit talks the models through the shoot. She’s so excited and proud of her line growing, and becoming something she’s proud of. In her interview, she says, today is important. They’re shooting footage for a Kitson window display. I’m confused, since I thought Kitson went out of business. She says, it’s an incredible honor, and she wants to nail it. PK brings the kids to the shoot, and she tells Jagger that he needs to help mommy sell boys shorts. Jagger poses for pictures solo, and then with other models. Dorit’s assistant, Kimberly, forgot some pieces. In her interview, Dorit says she’s done a ton of photo shoots, and never remembers a time when something didn’t go wrong. It’s important for everything to be perfect. A lot of time, money, and effort goes into it, to make it go without a hitch. They have to make the most and best of the situation. They do a final shot of all the models together with Jagger. Everyone applauds.

Kyle’s dogs are out of control, and she runs out after them. She wonders why they can’t behave. She calls Marlena from Hosted Villas about a Chateau Ventoux in Provence. She says she’s thinking of bringing girlfriends, and wants to check dates. In her interview, she says they’ve been doing a lot of trips, and she saw the chateau is a Vogue article about Provence. She thought it was perfect. She asks Marlena about the staff, and asks if they can have a chef. She thinks it sounds amazing, and says she’ll call back after she confirms with the other girls.

She calls the others to lock down a date. In Kyle’s interview, she says the Bahamas was fun, but tense. The camping trip was really fun, but not glamorous. She wants go somewhere fun, chic, and exiting, where they can relax and bond. Teddi tells Kyle that she’s 99% sure she can go, but wants to run it by her husband. Kyle says maybe she should do that too.

Harry gets ready to grill. LisaR says it’s hard to keep track which daughter is vegetarian. In her interview, she says more than anything she loves having the whole family home. Lately, Harry has either been in Canada or camping, and the girls have been traveling. When she’s alone, she comes up with things to entertain herself. We see her bouncing around on Instagram. Harry is trying to hunt down the cheese he bought. Amelia pretends she knows nothing about it, but tells Delilah and LisaR that she ate it. In LisaR’s interview, she says Amelia has issues with food. We flash back to Amelia talking about anorexia. LisaR says it’s two steps forward, and one back. It’s not easy, and they do it one day at a time. She wants to fix it, and make it go away. You don’t want to see your child in pain. She asks Amelia to have a little something, and Amelia says she’s even allergic to corn. LisaR wonders if Amelia is going to have this forever. Amelia insists she’s not hungry. LisaR says she loves Harry, but the veggie burger tastes like rubber.

Harry says maybe Amelia doesn’t want to eat, but he’s having dessert. Amelia gives him the finger behind his back. In LisaR’s interview, she says maybe they did something; she doesn’t know, but it’s hard to watch Amelia be in pain. Amelia asks if it makes Harry angry that she’s not eating his food. If so, they have to work through it. She says the energy is effed up, and asks why he’s so passive aggressive. LisaR says he fathered these children. He says he doesn’t think he’s responsible for their behavior, and thinks she’s responsible. Me too, and it’s no surprise he’s never around.

The women get together for a lunch. Kyle shows them photos from the party. LisaR says it took a long time to get out of Erika Jayne. In Kyle’s interview, she says things were rough between Kim and LisaR before the party. She thinks LisaR was using Erika’s persona to speak rudely to her sister. She doesn’t want to say anything right now, but thinks it’s complete bullsh*t. Dorit talks about the photo shoot, and says she’s doing the Kitson window. She’s super excited. She says she spoke to PK, who’s in London, and he told her to go on the trip. LisaR says Harry told her to go. I’ll bet he did.

Erika arrives last, and asks, what’s happening? Kyle says she closed her store, and felt so bad, she started bawling. She opened seven years ago. In her interview, she says seeing her name on a corner she drove by her entire life felt exciting. We flash back to the opening. She says the rent in Beverly Hills is through the roof. Because of that, combined with more people shopping online, it didn’t make sense to stay open. LisaR says, it’s sad, and agrees about the rent. In her interview, LisaR says when she had a store, she and Harry were relying on it as income, so they were in a more precarious position. Luckily, Kyle is in a position where Mauricio is doing well, and she’ll be fine.

Kyle shows them the chateau website on her phone. Erika says she’s been to Provence, but nothing like this. In her interview, LisaR says she likes a hotel with her own room, where she can escape if she needs to, but she’s open to it. She likes the word chateau. In Erika’s interview, she says, the house is beautiful, and it’s the French countryside; no need for glam.

LisaR asks if Camille is coming. Kyle says she left a message. Dorit asks LisaR what Camille said, but LisaR says it’s not her place. She says she can tell Camille that she thinks she should talk to Dorit. Kyle thinks LisaR should just let them know. I think this should be an all or nothing situation. LisaR should have either kept her damn mouth shut about it, or told Dorit everything. To me, it’s nasty to tell someone that a friend is talking about them, but not what was said. It’s not fair to just leave them hanging and imagining what it must be. In LisaR’s interview, she says that if she hadn’t been mad at Camille, she wouldn’t have said anything. That’s nasty to. Point proved. We flash back to LisaR telling Dorit that Camille was talking about her. She says she doesn’t want to hurt Dorit’s feelings. Kyle says if Camille is pretending to be nice, yet saying nasty things behind Dorit’s back, LisaR has to tell her. Dorit thinks it’s scary that Camille is acting nice, but might have residual feelings from their past altercation. Teddi says wait until LVP hears what Camille said about her teeth. We flash back to Camille saying LVP needs dental work. Teddi says it didn’t please her to hear Camille say that, even though she and LVP are not on the best terms. Kyle says you wonder what the person is saying about you.

Camille talks to a friend whose name I don’t catch, but we’ve seen before. Camille thought the wedding was perfect, and couldn’t be more thrilled. In her interview, she says it’s a great feeling, having a life partner. She missed the love and family part of being married. The friend says Teddi was odd at the airport, and in Camille’s interview, she explains that when they were leaving, her daughter said hi to Teddi, who snubbed her. Mason felt bad, and that’s when her mommy claws come out. She tells the friend that she doesn’t like how Teddi is acting toward her. She’s gotten too big for her britches. She’s been taking jabs at Camille, wanting her to pick a side with the LVP thing. She’s been around LVP and Kyle a long time, and sees LVP’s point of view, but feels for Kyle. She knows the dynamic, and LVP has been there for both her and Kyle. Camille wants to bring it up, but doesn’t think Teddi can take criticism. Yet she’s an accountability coach. Go figure.

Denise asks Kyle if Camille is invited, and Kyle says, of course. In her interview, Kyle says she and Camille aren’t on the best terms, but to not invite her is making a statement.

Denise goes to a restaurant. We already know she’s meeting Brandi (bleh), although they try to surprise us. Brandi arrives, and says dumbass stuff. In her interview, Denise says a mutual friend introduced her and Brandi. They went to dinner, and hit it off. She thinks Brandi is crazy fun, and likes her. Brandi says they have a lot in common. In Brandi’s interview – where she looks like a horror show – she says she and Denise have been through the wringer together with public divorces. What you see is what you get. Period. No bullsh*t. Denise is just like her. Maybe in that way, but no. Denise is actually a kind person. Brandi is not. I’m sure some past thing is why she lashes out, but she refuses to recognize that, so pfft! Brandi says she saw Denise’s Instagram pictures wits Patrick, and asks how her husband is handling it. Denise says, he’s so supportive and fine with it. Brandi says, it’s fine until it’s not. Denise says, if it was her, she wouldn’t like it. We flash back to a reunion where Brandi talked about slitting Eddie’s tires. Brandi tells Denise about some dude named Casamigos, who says she hit him in the face. She might have slapped a pretty, older English woman in the face once, but not slapping dudes in face. Classless as ever; another thing Denise is not. Brandi says wasn’t even there. Denise tells Brandi about some story the women think LVP planted with Radar Online. She says she doesn’t know LVP well enough to know if she leaked it. Brandi says, of course she leaked it. In Brandi’s interview, she says she and LVP were best friends for five years. We flash back to that time. Giggy! Brandi tells Denise, whatever LVP wants out there, gets out there. We flash back to Brandi telling Kyle about LVP wanting her to bring the tabloids with her on vacation. She says if you cross LVP in any way, which she did – Denise asks if she crossed LVP or disagreed with her. Brandi says, a bit of both – you get punished. Denise wonders why do that to a friend who’s never done anything wrong. She thinks Brandi should come to Provence. Brandi orders two glasses of wine in one. She tells the waiter, if he brings two separate glasses, she’ll kill him. In her interview, Denise says Brandi can drink her under the table. Denise doesn’t do shots. She sips that sh*t. Me too. I’d make a much better friend for Denise. Public divorce aside.

Brandi (who is friends with Kim now?) tells Denise that Kim called her a bitch. We flash back to Denise telling Kim that LisaR is really a nice person. I’m beginning to think Denise needs help picking friends. Denise tells Brandi that she was just reassuring Kim that LisaR didn’t man anything by it. It was bad timing, and LisaR shouldn’t have said it, but they all make mistakes. She thinks LisaR and Kim should move on. It’s an effing bunny. Again, I’m no fan of Kim’s, but LisaR is the one who brought it up, and used the c-word in reference to Kim. Why isn’t Denise calling her out on it?

Denise meets Aaron at Compass, where he’s unpacking fitness equipment. He says they just got the power on. In her interview, Denise says it’s been crazy busy. She’s traveling a lot, but they try to make sure not too much time goes by before they see each other again. Denise says she got the pictures of Sami’s messy room and the bathroom. Aaron says she uses every towel. Denise feels terrible, leaving him while the fitness center is being put together. Leaving stresses her out, but she gives Aaron credit. As a new husband, he’s being supportive. He says when he approaches Sami in a cool and calm way, she says stop yelling at her. Denise says his voice carries, and a thirteen-year-old perceives it as yelling. In Denise’s interview, she says, Charlie is the easier going parent, while Aaron has strict boundaries, but they make the girls feel safe and secure. She tells him that she owes him a beach party in Vegas.

Walking down a commercial street, Kyle tells Erika it’s depressing to close the store. They go to the building where the store was, and it says for lease. Kyle realizes she didn’t take the chandeliers, and has to get them. She says she did find a space she likes, but she’s never done anything from the ground up. She needs help. She tells Erika that she has a lot to think about. In Kyle’s interview, she says it’s a challenging time for her. As they pass Villa Blanca, she thinks of fun times with LVP. We flash back to some of those. Kyle doesn’t focus on what happened recently. It makes her sad to think that chapter of her life is closed. She and Erika go shopping, and look for scarves. Erika says, what’s more French than a scarf and beret? All they’re missing is a baguette and some cheese.

Camille calls Kyle, and says she went over her schedule, and talked to her family. She can go. She’s excited to be included. Kyle and Erika pay for whatever they just bought, and it’s 800 bucks for the tiniest bag of stuff ever.

Everyone gets packing. Again from closets as big as a small country. Kyle considers taking a machete.

Breaking news. There are three separate wildfires in California. Malibu is evacuated. Kyle, Teddi, and LisaR are on their way to the airport. Camille calls, saying it’s stressful. She lives in a canyon, and can see flames in the next canyon over. She has to leave her house now. In Camille’s interview, she says they got stuck in traffic, and could see the flames and smoke moving faster than the cars. She was terrified. Kyle tells her to make sure she’s safe, and keep them posted. In Teddi’s interview, she says, it’s heartbreaking. They’d planned on talking with Camille, but tragedy has a way of putting things in perspective. Oh nice. Once again they want to pick an inappropriate venue to air their grievances. It’s doubly nice that the person who they have a grievance with, would have no means of escape. LisaR calls Denise, who finally has cell service. Denise says she’s never seen anything like it. It’s effing insane. LisaR tells her to keep in touch. They’re not on the plane until 3:30. Denise says she thinks her house might be burning.

Next time, the trip to Provence; LisaR says it’s like Downton Abbey, but in France; Dorit says it makes you feel like you’re in Europe; Camille’s house burns down; Teddi and LisaR clash.

🏇 If She’s Out, So Am I…

Even worse, it looks like Brandi is inching her way in. Sorry, Denise, but I can’t.

What I Watched Today

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

 

Fear the Walking Dead

Older kid Max is trying to teach little kid Dylan how to shoot. Dylan shoots at a deer, and it runs. They follow it, finding it dead. A zombie comes out of the woods, and I hope they get eaten. Max says they can get out, but his gun jams. Instead of running, he keeps trying.

A small plane flies low, and the zombie gets chopped in half, but you know how determined they are. It keeps moving. The kids see flames in the clearing, and find the plane has crashed. Zombies are popping out of everywhere now, but Max isn’t real bright, and keeps trying get the gun to work instead of getting the hell out of there. A zombie gets close, but it’s suddenly down. Alicia says they’re here to help, and she gets cracking on that.

Max and Dylan find Morgan hanging upside down in the plane. A zombie nearly gets him, but he gets out. Max asks, who are you people? and Morgan says they came to help. Are they the Logans? Max asks, who? Alicia says they can’t stay long. Luci has been impaled by a metal pipe in the plane. John and Morgan call for June, who’s semi-conscious in the cockpit. Morgan asks Dylan to put pressure on Luci’s wound, and keep her from moving. He’s going to make sure nothing out there gets inside. Max asks, what if it does? and Morgan says, if it’s dead, shoot it.

A zombie pokes at June’s face. She calls to Al, who regains consciousness. Alicia is outside, whacking zombies right and left, and almost hits Morgan. He tells her, easy, and points out that her hands are covered in blood. Al and June unbuckle themselves, and John sees through the window that they’re okay. Morgan says they’re about ten to fifteen miles from the touchdown site; they’ll make it. Alicia takes a zombie’s head off.

Morgan asks if Logan copies, and says they’re coming, but it might take longer than they thought. Alicia starts setting up something, pounding stakes into the ground. John helps June and Al get out of the plane. Al radios Victor, telling him the plane crashed. There’s a tape back at the mill labeled skidmark, and It will explain how to fly a small plane. They need him to come get them. It looks like he’ll fly after all. She can’t hear Victor, and John says he must be out of range. He helps her out of the plane.

Where did all these zombies come from? is a good question. Morgan and Alicia get busy knocking them off. Dylan tells Luci that they’re friends, and help is coming. June runs in to attend to Luci. Alicia falls, and sees a sign that says, Radiation Area. John asks how Luci is, and June says tells him that they have to cut her free, but the boxes with supplies are scattered everywhere. Al and John look through everything for a hacksaw, as Al’s camera records.

Al is grabbed by a zombie in a Darth Vader-ish mask, and matching suit made out of puffer material. She pushes him back, and impales him through the back on a pipe. She grabs her camera and films. John shows her the hacksaw, and they go back to where Luci is. John cuts at the pipe piercing Luci to get her free, and she screams. John says they need a clear path. June says they’ll make it work, and Morgan says they can do this. Alicia says she’ll lead, and Morgan will take the side. She tells the boys to stay in the middle, and watch their backs. Now.

A truck comes toward them, running right over some zombies. The teenage girl driving tells them to get in. Max says it’s their sister, Annie.

In the truck, Morgan says he hates flying anyway. June says, the dead are everywhere, but Annie says the dead are the least of their problems. They have no idea where they landed, do they?

In a truck, Charlie asks Victor if he’s sure Al said skidmark. In another truck, Sarah asks Wendell if he’s up for this. He says he is, and she tells him, he said that the last time. He insists he’s sure.

Alicia asks, what happened? and Anna says they don’t know. They just stay away from them. Dylan asks if Al is a pilot, and she says, no. He says, no wonder they crashed, but John says it would have been worse if she hadn’t done what she did. Max asks if Logan is part of their crew. John says, no; just someone they’re helping. Annie says, he’s probably dead. They screech to a stop. Al thinks he just got into trouble, and Max says they can’t go around helping people they don’t know. Morgan says, they did, but Max says, they didn’t feel like they had a choice. Morgan says neither do they. Annie asks, why? and Morgan says they try to do what they can to make things better. She tells him, good luck with that. This place is worse than it seems. Alicia asks what she means, and Annie says, it’s not just signs. It’s the… she’ll see.

They drive until they see some zombies tethered together across the road. They get out, and see a tree with zombie heads hanging from it by their hair. Al asks Annie if they did this. Annie says, no, but they’re all over the place. June says they need to keep moving, but Annie says she’s not driving into that. Morgan says they’ll walk. It’s something they have to do. Annie says they don’t know the guy, but Morgan says they’ve been doing this for a while; helping people. They haven’t had a whole lot of luck. Annie asks what he means, and Al says, people are either dead, missing, or don’t want to be found. Logan and his people were the first who do. Annie says, it better be worth it, and tells them, get in. Morgan thanks her.

They get to the truck stop, and Alicia tells them, Logan said they were surrounded, but there’s no one there. They go inside, carrying Luci on a makeshift stretcher. Morgan calls for Logan, but there’s no answer. They set Luci on a table. John looks around outside, and checks the garages. He finds nothing. Al and June canvas the inside, but it’s dark and quiet.

Morgan finds a radio, and asks if Logan copies. They’re at the truck stop. June tells Luci, they’re going to do this. Luci says it hurts, but June says she’ll be okay. She gives John a list of supplies they need, and tells him, it’s not going to be pretty. He asks if she’s done this before, and she says, at trauma the center, but not at a truck stop. Dylan shows Luci a toy truck, and asks what it’s for. Lucy says, the man who set it up, drives a truck. Dylan wonders why he’d need toys, and Lucy says, it’s his way of giving people something to believe in. Dylan asks where he is, and Lucy says, he didn’t make it, so they tried to turn it into something more.

Morgan tells the kids that they have a place on the other side that used to be a factory. John says they had a movie night. Morgan says they were working on it. A place for people to feel safe and call home. Annie says, places like that don’t exist, and June says, they do. Morgan suggests the kids come back with them. Alicia comes back, and says, no one has been here for a long time. Al wonders if it could be another truck stop, but Alicia says, it’s the only one for miles. Morgan says they have to be there. Annie wonders what’s wrong with them? Morgan says she can trust them, and doesn’t have to be afraid. Annie tells him, that’s what people always say when there’s something to be afraid of. Morgan says, they just have to help a friend. Max picks up his gun, and Annie says, if they’re smart, they’ll get their friend and get out. They jet, but Morgan calls to them, please wait. He says they can help.

June gets ready to work on Luci. She says they won’t have much time if it starts to bleed. At the count of three… They pull the pipe out of Luci, and she screams.

A guy uses a combination to open the gate at the mill. He calls out, but no one answers. He sees a box that says, take what you need – leave what you don’t, written on it. He walks through the building, and finds a room with empty beds, and schedules on a bulletin board. He looks at a movie requests sheet, and sees a load of Al’s tapes. It’s Matt Frewer, and I suddenly get very distracted by that. I hadn’t known he was joining the cast. I assume he’s not just passing through.

Alicia says the kids were like everyone else they tried to help. She and Al lock up. A zombie stumbles out from around the corner. Alicia looks bored as she pikes it in the head.

June tells Luci that she’s very lucky. If it was off by a centimeter or they’d hit a bad bump in the car, she wouldn’t be there. Morgan continues to try the radio. He thinks something isn’t right, but Logan suddenly comes through. Morgan says he had them worried, and asks where he is. They’ll come to him. Logan says, that would be a little tricky. He’s there with his crew, looking at Morgan’s crew, and a spectacular view of the river. It’s Matt Frewer, inside the mill, while Victor and company stand outside. Logan says sees they’ve been driving the big rig with C & L on the trailer. From what he’s gathered, they’ve met the C, and he’s the L. Morgan asks why he brought them there, and Logan says he wanted what was his. It was the only way to get them far enough away, so he could slip in without a big fuss. Alicia says they found a plane and crashed it, because they wanted to help him. He says they make Clayton look like an amateur. Morgan asks where he brought them, and Logan says, a truck stop far away. He’s reclaiming what’s his. The one thing Clay said that he agreed with is, take what you need; leave what you don’t.

Victor and the others look around outside the mill. On the radio, Alicia says, don’t do this. Logan says he already did. She says she’ going to find him, and kill him herself. He says, for taking over a place where he’s the legal owner? I guess he does have a point. He says they have a more pressing quandary; her attitude. He doesn’t want to see people dead, he just wants what’s his. They want to help people? It looks like they’ll have to help themselves. Geez. Luci is sitting up already. June is good.

Sarah drinks a beer, and looks at an old ad for Jim’s brew. She says, you missed a real sh*t pie a la mode today, Jimbo. They joke’s on them. Wendell says, it tastes like vinaigrette, but she’ll get there. Charlie tells Victor she can find a way in, and Victor tells her to get the tape. He should have been on the plane today. He sure as hell is going to be on this one.

Al looks through what she recorded earlier. She takes a closer look at the zombie in the mask. She tells Morgan that she has to go back to where the plane is. There’s a story there. Morgan suggests going in the morning, but she thinks it might not be there if she waits. She knows her tapes haven’t helped them so far, but Morgan says it’s not her fault. He tells her to go and see June.

John asks June how Luci is doing. June says, she might have nerve damage, but she’ll be okay. He says look what he found, and shows her a copy of the film, It Happened One Night. She says, Clayton had good taste. John says he’ll save it for when they have people to show it to. She says, there’s a VCR in the back, but he says, let’s wait. June says, they’ll find him. John tells her that he was starting to think got all the luck in this world. They’ve survived things people don’t survive. Most people don’t have that kind of good luck. It would be a shame not to share it. They hug, and June says she didn’t think anyone could help her, not even him, until he made her believe it. So that’s what they have to do. Find a way to make other people believe it. They kiss, but John looks distressed.

Alicia stabs zombies. Can’t stop; won’t stop. Morgan says, hey, and Alicia says they could have died today. Luci almost did. The people they came for took what they had back home, and the kids ran from them. They can’t make up for the past if they’re dead. This was stupid. Morgan says, they were trying. They can’t make up for the past if they don’t try. She says her mom did so much to make sure they were standing there. Why? If they’re out there, they need to make it mean something. Morgan says he’s not done yet. It’s what they need – what he needs – because they’re not done yet. They could keep looking for the kids. Alicia says they don’t want help, but Morgan says they’ll keep trying until they do. It’s not supposed to be easy. They can’t just say they want to help and that’s it. They kill people. The things they’ve done – the things he’s done – they should be hard. Maybe that’s how they know they’re on the right track. Alicia says, it shouldn’t be this hard. Morgan says they’re still standing; they’re still here. Until they’re not, they have to keep at it. She walks off, and he walks in the other direction.

Victor looks at the skidmark tape. He sees Al’s interview with Daniel. Victor is like, what?!

It’s pouring rain, but Al goes back to the impaled zombie. She takes the mask off, and stabs him in the head. She begins to film, and finds a wire attacked to his jacket. She pulls out some kind of electrical component, and a pouch. She pulls a map out of the pouch. On the map, are the letters CRM and three circles interlinked. She radios Morgan, and says she’s back at the plane. He asks if it can wait, and she says, she was right. There’s a story there.

Someone comes up from behind, and knocks her out using a taser. It’s another guy in a mask and suit, but I don’t think he’s a zombie.

Next time, I don’t know. Either they didn’t show it or I wasn’t paying attention.

💀 I was, however, paying attention to the code word for TWD Rewards during Talking Dead. It was skidmark, and Chris Hardwick made me laugh when he cautioned viewers to enter it at the website, not Google. Yeah, I can only imagine, but don’t want to. The guests also gave a tease that the radiation sign Alicia saw would have something to do with the storyline, and how that might have affected the zombies. Chris acted like this was all fresh, but um… Z Nation addressed that issue some time ago. (Still sobbing over its cancelation.)

And still hanging on. Tyrion was really the only character I was invested in. Except for the dragons and direwolves.

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

Scotty finds Ava in the interrogation room. She asks what he’s doing there, and he says he heard she got arrested on the police scanner. She’s not walking into the arraignment alone. He’s there; let him help her. She says if he wants to help, bring her confirmation that she killed Ryan.

Jordan stirs, and Curtis says he doesn’t know how she does it; waking up looking beautiful every day. She calls him a liar, and he says, facts. She starts to sit up, and he tells her, be careful. He’ll get a nurse. She says, talk to her. What happened? He asks what she remembers. She says he came back from Canada. Did he find Ryan?

On the phone, Monica finds out Ryan is still in surgery. Drew approaches, and she asks how he’s doing. He says that’s kind of why he’s there. He has some things to take care of before he and Kim leave town. She says, they’re going away together?

Julian gives Kim some paperwork, and says they should have no problem going through customs. Kim thanks him, and he says he knows how much the trip means to her. He hopes it brings her peace. She does too. He hugs her, and says he wishes he could make it easier. She says he is. She knows Oscar would want her to do this. She goes into the bedroom to get her passport, and Julian calls Alexis. He thanks her for the expedited paperwork. Kim needs to bring Oscar’s ashes to Mount Kilimanjaro. He never thought things could move that fast. She’s glad she can help, and he says he owes her already for getting him out of jail. She says he should thank Doc for dropping the charges. He wishes all of his problems were that easily solved. Kim comes back, and he says he was thanking Alexis for greasing the wheels. She says, he got arrested?

Sam and Jason look into Shiloh’s room. Jason asks how she’s feeling, and Sam says, like a huge weight has been lifted. It’s one of the hardest cons she’s ever had to run. She hated pretending to believe what Shiloh said; it was disgusting. Jason says he’ll see if Monica can get a rush on the toxicology report.

Neil visits Alexis. He tells her that he’s anxious to see how the plan to neutralize Shiloh panned out. Alexis says, apparently, he drugged Sam, who was kept for observation, but she’ll be okay. He’s glad about that, but wonders how did the plan work?

Sam sits on Shiloh’s bed. He says, please tell him that Jason failed, and adds, no matter how hard Jason tries, he can’t keep them apart.

Ava asks if Ryan is dead or not, but Scotty doesn’t know. She says she lives in hope. What happened is justice; a knife in Ryan’s back. Her only regret is that she didn’t twist it. Scotty says she can think that, but don’t say it. If he does, she could face a murder rap. She says he makes it sound like she’s done something to be ashamed of. She avenged her daughter’s death. Scotty says she can call it revenge or justice, but she’s pleading not guilty.

Jordan tells Curtis that she needs to know. He tells her, relax. Ava used herself as bait, luring Ryan to a remote cabin, where he caught up with her. Chase took Ryan into custody, and Ava stabbed him in the back while he was handcuffed. He’s in surgery. Jordan wonders if he’ll make it, but Curtis doesn’t know. She says she can’t blame Ava. Badge or no badge, she’d want the same thing. Curtis says they need Ryan to live. She asks what he isn’t he telling her.

Drew tells Monica that he and Kim are leaving for Tanzania. They’re taking Oscar’s ashes to Mont Kilimanjaro, since Oscar never made the trip. He wanted her blessing, since the Quartermaines are usually buried in the crypt. She says, not this time. She thinks Kilimanjaro is perfect for Oscar, but if they don’t mind, she’d like to put Oscar’s plaque in with the rest of the family. Drew thinks Oscar would like that. He loved being part of the family. He had a special spirit. Monica says he got it naturally from his father. Drew doesn’t know about that, but appreciates her saying it. Jason approaches, saying he doesn’t want to interrupt. Drew says it’s not an interruption. They’re family, right?

Alexis tells Neil that they need proof Shiloh drugged Sam. Then they can force him to return Kristina’s Pledge. Neil thinks maybe that will cancel some of Kristina’s self-criticism and self-blame, but she still has a long way to go. Alexis appreciates his help, and he says he’s still her therapist; she’s still his priority. Alexis says she’s not sure she’s the one with the problem. Kristina appears, and says, that would be her.

Shiloh tells Sam that Jason can’t hurt them now. His heart is full that she still believes, and is listening to her inner voice. She says he’s so in love with himself. He’s the one in love with his inner voice.  He asks what she’s saying, and she says, game over, Shiloh, Hank, David, or whatever he’s calling himself. You lose.

Ava asks Scotty what difference it makes, as long as the bastard who killed her daughter is dead. He says a first year law student could handle her case. She has to plead temporary insanity. Ava says if the DA says it was premeditated, she’d be right. Ava had every intention of killing Ryan. It didn’t play out the way she’d planned, but hopefully, she got the job done. He says, how about this? She matters to him. She might have given up on herself, but he hasn’t.

Julian tells Kim it was no big deal; one night in lockup. He was defending his sister’s honor, and slugged Doc, but he dropped the charges. Kim heard him say there were other problems. What else isn’t he telling her? He says he’s a big boy; he can take care of himself. She knows he can, but she wants to know if he needs her. Is he in trouble? His phone rings. He says, it’s Scotty, and might be about Ava. Scotty asks where he is. Didn’t he hear the news Ava was arrested? She’s at the PCPD, and needs him now. Julian tells Kim that he has to go. Ava’s been arrested. She says she’s coming with him, but he says she has a plane to catch. When she comes back, he’ll be there and waiting for her. She says he’d better be, and they kiss.

Curtis tells Jordan, something else happened. She says she was relieved to hear he was okay. Her heart was beating hard, and she couldn’t catch her breath. He says she had a cardiac episode, and she asks if he means a heart attack. He says, everything is under control, and she tells him, just say it. He says the dialysis put a strain on her heart. If she continues it, her heart will be compromised.

Jason asks if Drew wants him to do anything while he’s gone. Drew says, maybe one thing. He can get a head start on the plans for the treehouse. Monica says Oscar expected them to build it together, and Jason says he’ll order the supplies, and they can start when Drew gets back. They shake hands, and Drew leaves. Monica says she didn’t want to worry Drew any further, but how’s Sam. Jason says, she’s clear to go home, but they need her to expedite the toxicology report. They need proof Shiloh drugged Sam.

Alexis says it doesn’t look like Kristina got much sleep, and Kristina says she had a rough night. She knows Sam just got involved with DOD because of her. Neil says Kristina’s concern is admirable, and shows that Shiloh no longer has a hold over her, but Kristina says, he does. There’s something about DOD she didn’t tell them.

Sam puts her finger in Shiloh’s face, and says she’s so sick of listening to his voice. I’m dying laughing, he’s so surprised. She ask if he knows how hard it was to listen to his self-serving garbage. He says all he was trying to do was help her, and Jason threw him down the stairs. That’s attempted murder. She says, is it? Does he have a witness? She answers her own question, saying, no, he doesn’t. Because he abducted her, and they were alone in the tower. She was too drugged up to resist. He says she willingly drank the tea, and committed to the ceremony. She willing signed the Pledge. She says, please. The Pledge was as bogus as his book. What did Molly call it? Cliché and derivative. Jason walks in, and Sam asks if he has it. He says he sure does. The toxicology report says Sam was drugged. He says she drank the tea willingly, but Jason tells him, the recording says different. Shiloh says he didn’t consent to being recorded, but Sam says she did, and in the state of New York, that’s all they need. Jason says, assault, attempted rape; who knows what else they’ll find when they start investigating? Shiloh is going to prison for a long time.

Julian meets Scotty at the station, and asks, what the hell happened? Scotty says Ryan tried to resurrect himself, and Ava tried to put an end to him once and for all, allegedly sticking a knife in his back while he was handcuffed. Julian says, good for her, but Scotty says she’s pleading guilty. He wants her to plead temporary insanity, but she won’t budge. He wants Julian to talk to her.

Ava tells Kiki that she’ll be able to rest. Her killer is going to pay. Julian comes in, and Ava says Scotty must have called him. Julian has to hand it to her. She had him fooled. Nice work. She fooled him into thinking she was in love with Doc. She asks if Ryan is dead. He doesn’t know for sure, but he’s guessing no. He tells her that she can’t plead guilty. She asks, why? She set out to avenge her daughter, and it’s what she did. She’s not hiding it; she’s proud of it.

Josslyn visits Kim, saying she got Kim’s message. It’s weird. They were together practically 24/7 before Oscar passed away, and now Josslyn hasn’t seen her since. Kim says she couldn’t face the Nurses Ball, and Josslyn says she almost didn’t go herself. Cameron brought her a message from Oscar, a video he’d pre-recorded. He said he wanted her to live her life, starting at the Nurses Ball by singing. Kim can only imagine how hard it was. Josslyn says she knows it sounds weird, but when she thought she couldn’t do it, Oscar was there. She saw him, and didn’t want to let him down, so she sang. Kim says, it’s not weird. She’s sure Oscar was there. He loved music, and he loved her, which is why she and Drew are sure he’d want her to have this. He hands her Oscar’s guitar.

Curtis tells Jordan that they’ll get through this. Jordan says the kidney transplant isn’t a quality of life issue anymore; it’s life or death. She knows why he wants Ryan alive. Doc is a match, and Ryan is his twin. Curtis says if Ryan lives, he’ll convince him to donate. She asks, if he dies? and Curtis says he’s going to save her. He doesn’t care what it costs, or what favors he has to call in. Wherever he has to go, he’ll go there. She says don’t make her arrest him. He says as ruthless as Ryan was, he’s that in love. He’s going to find a way to give her the second chance at life she deserves.

Alexis tells Kristina, there’s no point reliving nightmare, but she wants to say it while she has the courage. It’s not what Shiloh did, it’s what she did before joining the Trust. He wanted her to make an offering; a secret that was deep and important. Alexis asks if she means the Pledge. Kristina asks if Alexis knows what she gave Shiloh, and Alexis says, not unless she wants to tell.

Shiloh tells Jason and Sam that Sonny threatened him. Jason says, Sonny doesn’t make threats. Sam says Shiloh has no idea how hard she had to work to convince Sonny to let her deal with him herself. Kristina is her sister, but Sonny is an overprotective father. She wouldn’t be surprised if Sonny did deal with Shiloh himself. Not now; there’s too much scrutiny. Jason says when he’s sent to Pentonville, when everyone has forgotten about him, accidents happen. Shiloh asks what they want. Jason says, Kristina’s Pledge. Give it to them or they give him up to the cops.

Ava thinks she should get a medal for stabbing Ryan. The DA agreed to call off the search, giving a serial killer a free pass. Ava never believed he was dead, and she out-manipulated him. The only reason she didn’t pull the trigger, was because Curtis said Kiki would want her to help save Jordan, and he was right. Kiki was too generous for her own good, but Ava knows better. The only way to get justice in this world is to take it. Scotty says Curtis can testify to her state of mind. If she flushes her life down the drain, Ryan wins. Is that what she wants?

Josslyn tells Kim that’s she’ll have to see if she remembers what Oscar taught her. Drew arrives, and asks if Kim is ready. He tells Josslyn the guitar looks good on her. Kim tells him that she wanted Josslyn to have before they left. Josslyn asks where they’re going, and Kim says they’re taking a trip. Drew says they’re going to make Oscar’s trip to Mount Kilimanjaro. Kim adds, to say goodbye to their son.

Monica joins Curtis is Jordan’s room. He says he was just explaining about getting a new kidney. Monica says, that’s the plan. Does Jordan have any questions? Jordan asks if Ryan is out of surgery, and Monica says, stand down, commissioner. She just had a serious episode, and can’t afford any strain on her heart. She tells Jordan to take a leave of absence. Let someone else do the job. She helped save Port Charles from a monster. The least they can do is help give her back her life.

Kristina says when Shiloh told her that he wanted something important and personal, she thought about when she tried to blackmail Parker, but he didn’t want that. He wanted… Neil says, something more useful that he could cash in later. Kristina says she was too stupid to see it, and Alexis says she was betrayed by someone she trusted. Kristina says, now they’re all going to pay the price, and Alexis asks what she told him. Kristina says, something about her family.

Shiloh asks if this is over if he gives them the Pledge. Jason says, it’s already over. He’s never going to bother Kristina again. It’s up to him if he walks away or not. Shiloh says He’ll cooperate, and Jason asks where the Pledges are. Shiloh says in the place where Jason almost killed him.

Ava tells Julian she lured Ryan to her cabin with every intention of killing him, and stabbed him in the back in front of police witnesses, but she was never more sane or sure of anything. How can she get around that? Julian says they can deal with the questions, but he can’t deal with her giving up. She needs to keep her mouth shut, and do what Scotty says. She calls Scotty her knight in shining armor. Julian says if she wants revenge, she needs to plead not guilty. If Ryan ends up in Ferncliff while she goes to prison, she won’t be able to finish what she started.

Josslyn says, Oscar talked a lot about Kilimanjaro, especially after he got sick. Oscar would want them to take him there. He wouldn’t want to be in an urn in a vault, but under the stars. If he knew they were doing it together, it would make him even happier. Drew asks if she wants a ride, but she thinks she’ll stop by the park. She’s going to Oscar’s Meadow, and see if she remembers the chords he taught her. She thanks Kim, and hugs her. Drew hopes she thinks about Oscar when she plays, and she says she’s always thinking of him. She hugs Drew, and tells them to take lots of pictures. She leaves, and Kim says Josslyn has been through so much, and stays so strong. Drew says, she’s not the only one.

Monica checks Jordan’s vitals, and says her blood pressure is elevated, and she has a low grade fever. The sooner they find a kidney, the better. Curtis says they need Ryan to make it through surgery. Monica says she’ll check on him. Jordan thanks her, and Monica says again, they owe her. She leaves, and Jordan doesn’t know what’s worse; her heart nearly stopping or agreeing to a leave of absence. Curtis says she’ll be back to fighting for truth and justice in no time. Until then just get better. Let him pamper her; he’ll fluff her pillow, spoon feed her rocky road ice cream, whatever she needs. She says she has everything she needs right there, and he kisses her.

Alexis tells Kristina, don’t worry. Whatever she said, they’ll deal with it. Neil thinks it’s a family matter, and it’s best to keep it that way. Kristina thanks him for his help, and he says, there’s more where that came from. He’s just a phone call away. When he’s gone, Alexis says Kristina is very brave to come forward. Whatever secret she told, her father will take care of it. Kristina says, it’s not about him.

Sam and Jason go to the tower. Sam looks sick, and remembers Shiloh starting to get undressed, and saying they were destined to know each other on every level. It starts tonight. Jason tells her that she can wait downstairs, but she says she’ll be okay. She thought she could fight him off, but she couldn’t. She was thinking, poor Kristina; she would have been alone. Jason says Sam would have been looking out for her. They start looking for the Pledges.

Kim says she promised not to cry on Drew’s shoulder anymore, and he asks what else is he good for? She says he needs his strength to climb the mountain, and more when he gets to the top. He says that’s why they’re doing it together. Kim says they have a plane to catch, and he says, they do. Let’s go. They head out.

Ava tells Julian it never occurred to her that Ryan might live. He would just end up back in Ferncliff or some other institution. Julian says, and Kiki’s murder goes unavenged. Scotty returns, saying he spoke to the judge. Ava is going to be arraigned this afternoon. He hopes Julian convinced her to fight. Ava tells him, don’t just stand there looking good. Start earning your fee.

Curtis says he and Jordan never got their honeymoon in Fiji. They could start looking at hotels. Sun and sand will do them some good. Monica tells them that Ryan is out of surgery, and Curtis asks if he’s going to make it. She says, it’s too early tell. Jordan wonders why Ryan would consent to give her a kidney.

Alexis says Shiloh needed leverage to use against Kristina or someone she loves. Kristina says she’s so sorry. Alexis says, if the secret isn’t about Kristina’s father… it’s about her.

Jason opens a desk drawer, and says, found it.. Sam asks how they know those are real, and Jason says they’ll have to open one. He picks up Margaux’s envelope. Good choice! He opens it, and looks at Sam, saying, it looks real to him. Sam looks through the envelopes and finds Kristina’s. She says, that’s it. Shiloh is finally finished. Jason says, not yet, but they’re close.

Tomorrow, Sasha tells Nina that she loves it there, Alexis asks Kristina what’s in the Pledge, Maxie doesn’t believe it, and Jason tells Sonny he has leverage against the DA.

The Haves and the Have Nots

Madison keeps trying to call David, but gets voicemail. He asks his co-worker Tisha (I got a name!) if she’s sure it’s him, and she says, it’s the same address. He thinks David is probably out on Valium. He says he told Jeffrey not to go over there. He tries the radio, and Tisha makes a call. Madison thinks it’s David, but she’s gotten Veronica, who’s just pulling into her driveway. Madison says he thinks Jeffrey has been hurt, and to come to the hospital. She says, who is this? and he realizes he’s not talking to David. He says, it’s Madison, and Veronica asks, what happened? He says, just come. Veronica drives back out.

Madison asks why Tisha called Jeffrey’s mother. She says, it’s on his records, and she’s his mother. He says Tisha doesn’t know her. David calls back, and Madison says he needs to come to the hospital. It’s Jeffrey. David asks, what’s wrong? and Madison says he just needs to come. David is like, damn, and jets.

Veronica gets there first. Tisha tells her the ambulance isn’t there yet; she’s still waiting to hear. Veronica says Tisha called her. What the hell happened? Madison comes out, and says, a shooting. They got a call from the address that there were two gunshot wounds to the head. David arrives, and Madison says, there are two gunshot wounds to the head coming in. Davis asks if Jeffrey has been shot, but Madison doesn’t know. David asks why he called, and Madison says, it’s his address; Spanish Moss Trail. Veronica says, whose address that is. Is it that boy? David says, yes. She says she told him to get that boy in line. David asks if Madison has called the ambulance. Madison says he’s been trying, but he’s not getting a response. They must be working on him. David says he should have made Jeffrey leave, and Veronica asks if Jeffrey was with that homosexual girl. Tisha gets a call, and says, it’s not two; it’s one wound, but she doesn’t know which one of them it is. It doesn’t look good. She says she’s sorry. A gurney is quickly wheeled past, and Veronica yells for Jeffrey. David says he’ll kill that son of a bitch.

Meanwhile, at the Iron Bone (I just like saying that), Mitch sees a cousin/uncle/thug/whatever, and says, look who’s up early drinking beer. Dude says, it’s the breakfast of champions. Funny. I thought that was a Hall’s cough drop, coffee, and a cigarette. Mitch asks where Uncle Vinnie is. He’s going to meet with Cryer. Dude says, the guy who stabbed Uncle Vinnie? but Mitch says, his father. Dude suggests he get Vinnie’s $50K, and while he’s at it, he heard Vinnie talking about that Black kid. He wants his money. Mitch says Benny is working on it, and dude wonders how the hell Benny has $8 million, and can’t pay back the family. Mitch asks if he’s stupid, and dude says, what’s stupid is Benny not paying what he owed. Uncle Vinnie was drunk last night, and talking crazy. Mitch says he’ll be back later with the money, and dude says he’d better be.

Madison tells David and Veronica, still no word on the surgery. Veronica asks, what kind of hospital is this? and David says, stay calm. She says she told him, but he doesn’t need to hear that. She asks what the address is, and he says, Spanish Moss Trail, apartment number seven; why? She wants to see what happened, and make sure the DA gets all the evidence. She’s going to put that bastard homosexual away for life. David says their son is in surgery, and may not make it. She says, Jeffrey will make it. He’s a fighter like his momma. She’s a survivor, not like him, letting Jeffrey go be with those people. They’re wicked. Doesn’t he get it? They’re evil. Destruction follows them everywhere. Does he know how many are on crystal meth? Disease and death follows them, and it’s what he allowed for their child. They’re sodomites, and he allowed it. He did that, and now look at this. This is war, and it’s all his fault. She tried to tell him. If Jeffrey doesn’t make it, she promises… A crying Madison approaches them, and says he’s sorry. Jeffrey didn’t make it. Just as I’m thinking, hmm… we didn’t actually see him, Madison says he was told the African American guy didn’t make it. Veronica asks, why do you people lie so much? You lie about everything. Lying is in your DNA. He even lies about something this serious. The smell on him disgusts her. She comes close to him, and sniffs. She says he smells like a lie. Why is he crying? Don’t cry over her boy; he’s not dead. She grabs Madison’s face, and says, liar. She walks out. David asks where he is. Madison calls the doctor, and David cries.

Wyatt pretends to be Jim, and calls through to Kathryn’s car.

In Kathryn’s car, impressing his friends, RK tells them he’s changed things. He’s different; he’s better. He’s got them. The phone rings, startling him. Wyatt tells him, get his ass over there. RK says his guy wasn’t around, and he had to wait until morning. Wyatt had better have the money. Wyatt says RK better be on his way. If he isn’t, Jim is going to report the car stolen, and RK will get caught with his stuff. RK says just make sure he has the damn money. He’s on his way. He says, you can call the car. It’s like a spaceship

Jim sees Kathryn sleeping, and slams the door. He says, hungover? and she says, yes, you ass. He says, good. Is he talking too LOUD? She says, like he’s never been hungover. He says the child who brought her home stole her car. She asks, what child? and he says she doesn’t remember? She says, who cares? and he says her car is gone. He stole it. She says she’ll get another one, but Jim says not before he puts the kid’s ass in jail. She says, the kid from the bar? He says she’s stupid when it comes to money, but she disagrees. That’s why she has a lot, and he’s done. He has none. The stupidest thing she ever did was marry him. He says that was the smartest thing. He keeps her in money. It’s his brand that kept her rich. She gave Hanna $8 million; is that smart? Kathryn says, she’ll give it back, and tells him, don’t go near Hanna’s son; she means it. He tells her, take a shower. She smells like a daycare. She suggests he take a hike off a cliff. In a really odd moment, he helps her up, and fixes the covers. Force of habit?

Wyatt tells Jim that someone is coming up the driveway. Jim says, he’s a Malone. Mitch rings the bell, and Jim comes out. Mitch introduces himself, saying, he came to negotiate a truce. Money for his son. Wyatt did a lot of damage, and the family is pissed. He’s there to keep the peace. Jim says he has no idea what Mitch is talking about, and Mitch asks if that’s a game Jim wants to play. Jim asks how he knows it was Wyatt, and Mitch says he found the receipt with Wyatt’s name on it. Jim asks what he wants, and Mitch says, $75K. Jim asks if that’s how much the drugs were worth that Wyatt bought, and Mitch says, it’s not about what Wyatt bought. It’s about him buying peace. Jim thinks it’s unreasonable, but Mitch says he doesn’t. Especially if his grandma found out his son put hers in the hospital. Jim has to agree, and Mitch says he’ll wait. He’s not going anywhere until he gets it. Jim says he’ll write a check, but Mitch says, the family doesn’t do checks. Cash only. Jim says he’ll bring it to the bar in the morning. Mitch says his uncle is pretty pissed. He suggests Jim give to him. Jim says, if he does this, his son will be left alone. Mitch says, yeah, but Jim has a question. It’s usually blood for blood. What’s different? Mitch says Jim has him in the middle. He doesn’t need this war. Jim says, all right.

Wyatt asks what Mitch said, and Jim asks how much he spent buying drugs from them. Wyatt asks how much Jim stole from him. Jim has half a mind to let them have Wyatt’s sorry ass. Wyatt says it would be better than being stuck there. Jim says the Malones aren’t playing games; they’ll kill Wyatt. It’s serious business. Wyatt says if Jim hadn’t taken his money, he wouldn’t be in this situation. Jim wonders how he raised such a fool, and Wyatt says Jim’s a fool for taking his money. Jim says he did it for Wyatt’s own good. Every time Wyatt does damage, and Jim digs out of the pile of sh*t, Wyatt makes another one for him to climb into. Wyatt tells Jim, go to hell. Jim says, he might, but Wyatt’s ass better be happy in his room. If the Malones get to it before they get their money, he won’t have an ass left. Jim asks, is this what happens when you get a participation award? Ha-ha! Everyone is cracking me up tonight.

Scott hunts down Roderick at the Artisian. He says he’s with the Attorney General’s office. Roderick asks what he can do for him, and Scott says he can start be not looking nervous. Does he have something to hide? Roderick says, no, and Scott shows him a picture of Candace, asking if he knows her. Roderick says, no, and Scott asks if he mentioned he was an FBI agent; top of his class. Roderick says, good for him. Scott says he rose to the top quickly, and knows Roderick is lying. He’ll ask again; does he know her? Roderick says, no, he doesn’t, and Scott says he wants to make it hard. Okay. He makes a call, asking about Roderick’s real name. Roderick asks what he’s doing, and Scott says, calling Homeland Security. Roderick gets super nervous, and says he remembers; he knows her. Scott hangs up. Roderick asks if he’s getting deported, but Scott says that depends on how much help he’s going to be. They’ve got cameras all around. They can start with surveillance. Where’s security? Roderick leads the way.

Candace asks what Charles is what up to today, and he says, what else? They’re packing up and moving. He’d love for her to see it. She’s excited that she gets to see his house. A house tells a lot about a person. He laughs, and looks out the window. She asks if it’s something interesting, and he says, yeah. America. She calls him Mr. President Elect, and he says she likes the sound of that. She says she likes the sound of him, especially right before that moment. He purrs. He says, no, he doesn’t, and she says, like a kitten. He says he roars like a lion, and she says, a baby lion. Hakuna Matata. There’s a knock at door. A guy who isn’t Landon says he needs to talk to Charles in private, and Candace goes to her adjoining room.

Not-Landon tells Charles, Lisa from the Times is doing a story on Candace, and it’s not a good one. Landon flew NYC to see if he can get the story killed, but he thinks it’s still going to go. Candace blackmailed and damaged several high profile. Her cover was blown when they saw her on TV. Charles says, Landon will take care of it, but not-Landon doesn’t think so. He knows Lisa, and there’s this guy. He shows Charles a picture of the AG, and says, he’s already spoken to the President. They think he’s the one making trouble, and they need to get Candace out of there. Charles asks how long they have, and not-Landon says, it depends on Landon, but he’s pretty sure there’s nothing Landon can do. Charles says, it’s his job, but not-Landon says if they don’t handle this now, it could get messy and nasty. Charles hears him, but doesn’t want Candace to go. Not-Landon knows he likes her, but she’s trouble for him, and them. They need to distance themselves from her. Charles wants her to come. If not-Landon hears from Landon, let him know.

Candace comes back, and asks if everything is okay. He says, just Presidential stuff. She asks what it’s like in the White House. Is there someone to teach you protocol? He says, yeah, and she says she has so many questions. He has to shower, and she offers to join him, but he says, no. He needs a moment.

Candace’s phone rings. It’s Benny. He asks if she’s all right. He saw the news. Is she with him? She says she thinks so, and Benny asks if they’re dating? She says, that’s what it looks like. He tells her, be careful, and she asks, why? He says because he’s her annoying kid brother, and he always has to look out for her. That’s why. She asks if Hanna saw, and what she said. Benny tells her, not much. She’s been acting funny lately. It has something to do with that dude she’s seeing. He says he’ll find out. He asks if Charles knows about everything, and she says he does. Hanna comes down, and there’s a three-way hello. Benny says he’ll call Candace back later.

Benny asks if Hanna is making breakfast, but she says they’ll pick something up on the way to the bank. They’re giving the money back. Benny says he needs to pay Mitch’s family. She says she knows that. She talked to Kathryn, who’s going to give her a loan off of the interest so Benny can pay them. And he’s going to help her pay Kathryn back. She tells him, don’t borrow from people like that no more, and he promises he won’t. The doorbell rings, and Benny says he’ll get it, but Hanna says, don’t. He asks if it’s that dude, and she says she doesn’t want talk to him. Benny says he’s been blowing up her phone all day. What did he do? Hanna says, let it go. Benny says he’ll break Derrick’s neck, but Hanna tells him to tend to his own wounds right now. Derrick just isn’t the man she thought he was. Benny says he told her there was something he didn’t like; he knew it. She says, let it go. Benny wants to know what Derrick did, but she tells him, get dressed. The bell rings again

Tisha tells Madison that she’s sorry. He asks if she’s sure the one who died was African American. She is, and he says, the one they took to the ER? She says, he’s not. They need a relative to ID the body, and Madison says he’ll talk to David. Tisha asks if he’s okay, and he says, no. She tells him again, she’s sorry. Madison tells David they need him to identify the body. David cries. Madison says he is so sorry, and David says take him to his son. Why didn’t we see either one of them though? I’m still thinking there could be a mix-up here.

Scott goes through security footage. He sees Candace follow a guy to his room. Scott says he’ll be taking all the footage, but Roderick says he can’t let him. He needs to call the owner. Scott tells him to do what he feels. He tells the security guy to leave, and asks Roderick what’s going on? A girl pays him, and he gives her money later. It’s happening night after night. Roderick thought he was looking for Candace, but Scott says he’s looking for everything. He wants to know what’s going on – now. Roderick asks if he needs a lawyer. Scott says Roderick needs to tell him what’s going on, or he’s going to be arrested. Spit it out. Roderick wants to call the owner, but Scott says he’ll take Roderick along with the evidence. He asks who the leader of the ring is, and Roderick says, not him. Scott asks if it’s the owner, but he says she’s not aware of it. Scott asks who she is, and Roderick says, Kathryn Cryer is the main owner. There’s a board, but she owns the largest share. Scott says it could make money for her, but Roderick says, it’s small money to her. Scott asks if Roderick is having an affair with her, and he says, no… okay. Scott says he saw the damn tape. Stop lying, and tell him everything. Does her husband know? Roderick says, no. Jim threatened him. Scott says he saw that moment at the bar. It didn’t look pleasant. Roderick says, it wasn’t. Scott asks, who’s in charge? and Roderick finally says, Candace. Scott says, now they’re talking. Does the President know she was a prostitute? Roderick doesn’t know, and Scott says, get her on the phone. Roderick says, she spooks easy; she’ll know right away. Scott says Roderick has been very helpful, but he needs a lot more. Roderick says, if he tells Scott everything, will he still get deported? Scott says that depends on how much he helps. Keep bringing it. Scott asks, who’s this guy? pointing to RK. Roderick says, he works with her. Scott points to Rocky, and says, this guy? Rocky says they’re all in this together. Scott asks, is there a code word? Roderick says if you order whiskey on the rocks with a beer chaser and mudded lime. Scott says, okay. Let’s have some fun.

Madison and David approach the body. David takes a breath. Madison holds his. The cover is lifted, and David says…

Veronica is on a porch, and when someone opens the door, she’s shocked.

Next time, Madison tells David they got a call from that address, Hanna tells Benny they’re giving the money back, and Jim tells Kathryn if they don’t give the Malones $75K cash by the end of the day, they’ll put a hit out on Wyatt.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

It’s the last breakfast in Hawaii. Kyle isn’t feeling well, and can’t afford to be sick. When she gets home, she has to get ready for Farrah’s 30th birthday. Dorit says she’s a little tired and anxious to get home. We see clips of Kyle and Mauricio out the night before. Camille joins the women and Mauricio. In her interview, she says it’s kind of trippy, waking up and being a Mrs. again. Mauricio asks if they’re going anywhere for a honeymoon, and Camille says, Switzerland. Kyle, who can’t seem to keep a lid on it, says she found out something weird. One of the family home of one of Alexia’s friend’s was burglarized. The construction workers were taking a lie detector test, and LVP was there taking one. Camille says, it’s ridiculous. Over a dog? Honestly, I don’t get their reaction to this, since they’re the ones who made the big deal out of calling LVP a liar. Camille says she hasn’t seen anything from LVP. LisaR tries to get her to admit it’s a huge devastation, but Camille says, it’s a little owey. LisaR says LVP doesn’t have to behave that way. Camille thinks it’s hurtful and sad. She wishes LVP could be there for her and dismiss all of this. Kyle says they have to get moving, and Camille thanks them all for coming.

Denise gets home from filming. She finds a gift from LisaR and Harry. The note says, Cheers to you and Aaron. Many happy endings! Eloise lost a tooth, and Denise tells her about the tooth fairy. In her interview, Denise says she’s grateful that Aaron is okay with her being on location with her ex-boyfriend. If their roles were reversed, she doesn’t know if she’d be as understanding. She might say she was, but she’d be a little jealous. Aaron is puzzled about the happy endings remark, and she says she may have done something he won’t be too happy about. We flash back to her telling the story about finding him a happy ending when she went camping. She says she didn’t get into the details, and told them he was mortified. Aaron says, it was awkward. Denise says it might not have been the weirdest thing ever if she hadn’t been a hundred years old. Aaron says, two hundred. She says some of the women were a little judgmental, but they can judge all they want. He says, it’s out there now.

Kyle packs her million pairs of shoes back up. She says it was so much fun. Everyone had a great time. and got along. That in itself is a wedding gift for Camille. In the airport limo, LisaR brings up an article in People magazine about LVP and Camille. Dorit says she was way surprised. LisaR reads that Camille said LVP helped her take a leap of faith, and she respects LVP’s decision not to attend the wedding. In LisaR’s interview, she says Camille tells them one thing, and something different in the article. She doesn’t trust both sides of Camille’s mouth. Because I guess Camille can’t possibly feel more than one way, or maybe felt differently later on. LisaR says Camille needs to own her sh*t, and had better step up. Ha-ha! Or what? Since she can never stop being a big-mouthed jerk, LisaR tells Dorit that Camille says not nice things behind her back. We flash back to Camille saying Dorit makes the hairs on the back of her neck stand up. Dorit says Camille claimed it was great getting to know her. We see a clip from the camping trip where Camille says now that she knows Dorit better, they can move forward. I’d also like to point out that when Camille said that to LisaR, it was way before the camping trip. Dorit says, don’t pretend to be nice.  Kyle tells her that Camille says what she thinks someone wants to hear. Teddi doesn’t care about the article, but at least tell them. I can’t believe none of these women understand how tabloids work.

Dorit tells PK he’s not allowed to have chips. Crunch on carrots. Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to work for him.

Erika asks Tom if he wants to come to a party. She got a text from Kyle, but he suddenly has something else to do. Can’t say I blame him.

Kyle picks up LisaR, who disgusts me at this point. LisaR is going for a mammogram. Both her mom and half-sister had double mastectomies, and she’s a little nervous. Kyle asks what LisaR is wearing to the party, but LisaR wants it to be a surprise. Kyle says there are going to be five hundred people. She still has to get a Ferris wheel. She says the party cost about fifteen Birkin bags. LisaR asks what she remembers about being pregnant the first time. She was screaming and crying, and locked the door when she found out there were so many tests, and the nurse wasn’t having it. Well, that does sound a little insane.

LisaR says, it was quite a weekend. When People magazine came out, she lost her sh*t. She wasn’t happy that she told Dorit that Camille was talking about her, but she felt like she had enough. So let me get this straight. LisaR had enough, so she decided to hurt both Camille and Dorit by telling Dorit that Camille had been talking about her. Okay. Does she ever look in a mirror?

Since Kyle was already scheduled for next week, she jumps on LisaR’s mammo-tails and gets in her appointment now. LisaR says now she can focus on Kyle’s anxiety rather than her own. In Kyle’s interview, she says it gives her anxiety, but her mom died because she didn’t get one. If she’d gone, maybe she’d still be with them. Kyle is haunted by it. In LisaR’s interview, she thinks the anxiety leading up to the test is more frightening than the procedure. The radiologist shows LisaR her results on a laptop, and she’s good. More pictures are wanted from Kyle, and she freaks. In her interview, she says when she was turning thirty, her mom found a lump. Now here she is. They think the see something the day of daughter’s thirtieth birthday.

We all nervously wait. Kyle looks like she going to pass out, and starts crying. She tells LisaR that she has to wait. The radiologist apologizes, and tells Kyle it looks great. LisaR hugs her, and Kyle says she just got scared when they wanted to look again. LisaR says she’s all good, and the radiologist says it was just dense tissue.

Dorit tells PK she doesn’t think anyone will be coming to the party as Karl Lagerfeld, and he says he doesn’t think anyone can compete. In Dorit’s interview, she says she loves Halloween. PK is going as Karl, and she’s his kitty cat, Choupette. PK’s head is sweating in the wig already, and I feel his pain. I have given up on Halloween wigs at parties forever.

LisaR says she has to nail it. In her interview, she says when she dresses up, she’s one hundred million percent. She wants to get as close as she can to the look, and act the part. I’m sure she does. Can I start a Make LisaR Go Away page on Facebook?

Farrah’s party is being set up. Kyle says since Farrah was born on Halloween, they’ve always called it Farrahween. She’s flown Alexia home for the occasion. Kyle asks if Alexia’s dad has seen her outfit, and we see a clip of Mauricio wondering where the rest of it is. Kyle says their mom can dress like a tramp if she wants to. She’s going as a Playboy bunny, and has paid over $600 for what’s basically a black one-piece swimsuit and ears. The tail was an extra $45. If that’s what it means to be rich, I think I could do it better.

No surprise, the decorations are fabulous. Subtler, yet more lavish than Dorinda in the Berkshires. Teddi calls Kyle, who’s stuck in her expensive costume, since the zipper won’t work. She’s waiting for an Uber bringing her another one. Teddi says she’s about a block away, and Kyle asks her to entertain everyone until she figures out what she’s doing. Teddi is dressed as Harley Quinn (me two Halloweens ago), and arrives with Edwin Joker. A vampire jumps out at them. Teddi hates it. Denise follows, in a mini Marie Antoinette dress and wig, with Aaron wearing something Edwardian.

Kyle says she’s literally stuck, and has to pee. Mauricio says he can take it off. He hands her a new costume, and brings her new costume. He rips the back open on the one she’s stuck in, and she gets pissed, saying what if the new one doesn’t work?

Outside, Dorit freaks at the vampire jumping out. Erika says their costumes are clever. I’m surprised that she’s so boring as a leopard or something. LisaR comes as Erika, and Erika loves it. She says she saw herself. It wasn’t her, but it was her at Coachella. She says LisaR nailed it. In her interview, LisaR says, Erika is every girls dream; sexual, over-the-top, and can get away with anything. They start to wonder where Kyle is, and Teddi says, she had a wardrobe malfunction.

Kyle gets her new costume adjusted. Her daughters are like, omg, your butt is hanging out.

Kim arrives dressed as a modernized version of a gangster from the 40s. In LisaR’s interview, she says she was kind of shocked to see Kim. She wishes she’s had a heads up. My Lord, this woman needs to be apprised of everything. It is actually a family party. How shocked can she be? What a lame brain. Maybe they took out brain cells to plump her lips.

Denise can’t breathe in her costume, but Dorit says she looks hot, so that’s all that counts. Camille, as Catwoman, comes with a friend, and the morally corrupt Faye Resnick right behind her. In her interview, Dorit says she’s a fashionista cat, Erika is an exotic cat, and Camille is a stray cat. She wonders where Camille bought a mask to cover both her faces. Okay. Hate her too now. Kyle tells her not to say anything to Camille. In Dorit’s interview, she says she has terrible anxiety, not knowing what Camille said about her, but she just got married and it’s Farrah’s birthday. Oh gee. Think you might be able to control yourself for a whole evening? Denise says she’s always clueless, and we flash back to Denise saying she’s lost during one of the many Puppygate convos.

The birthday girl comes out, and we see Mauricio as Hugh Hefner. In Kyle’s interview, she says, earlier, she was facing the worst thing, and it’s a reminder to celebrate family and friends when you get the chance. She takes the mic, and says Farrah is an inspiration, and she can’t believe she has a child who’s thirty. In her interview, she says it’s every parent’s dream to see their child grow to be a responsible adult; self-sufficient, smart, and successful. She’s proud of Farrah, and proud of the job she and Mauricio did. They kind of know what they’re doing. She tells everyone to take a ride on Farrah’s wheel. The DJ begins to play music, and everyone dances. In her interview, Kyle says she got a silver Rolex for her thirtieth birthday. In Erika’s interview, she says she went to Vegas. Dorit says she had a surprise luncheon in Connecticut, and didn’t have Ferris wheel.

Kyle talks to the women about her mammogram. She suggests a spin on the wheel, and Dorit wants to know why they have to be first. Kyle’s seatbelt is stuck, much like her first costume. In Teddi’s interview, she says she promised not to bring anything up to Camille, but they ended up side by side. Kyle says, FML when she gets stuck at the top.

There’s a photographer, and the women get a group shot taken. LisaR, in character as Erika, tells Kim that giving the bunny back to LisaR was something [bleep]. In her interview, Kim says she and LisaR don’t have a good history. We flash back to several episodes where LisaR acted incredibly nosy and rude to Kim, ending with her returning the bunny to LisaR at the reunion. Because it lacked good energy. She says she didn’t mean to be crude, rude, or disrespectful, but she feels attacked. She’s not hearing anything from LisaR but see you next Tuesday. LisaR likes being Erika.

Kim asks Dorit if that wasn’t wrong on LisaR’s part. It was upsetting. Kyle says, it was uncalled for. Kim says, it was inappropriate and rude. Kyle thinks LisaR is holding a grudge. In Kim’s interview, she says LisaR is always looking for attention. Denise joins them, and Kim whines that LisaR was rude to her. In Denise’s interview, she says LisaR is one of her best friends (I’m sorry), and was hurt by the bunny situation. She tells Kim that she really hurt LisaR’s feelings. Kim doesn’t believe it. In her interview, Kim says Denise should stand back. This is between her and LisaR. Let it go. Kyle says Kim isn’t wrong, and to give her that. It wasn’t okay. Denise is sorry that Kim is feeling hurt. Kim says she’s not, and Denise asks what’s the problem then. Kyle doesn’t think Denise gets it. Denise says, who cares about some bunny? They need to let it go. Well, here’s the thing, Denise. LisaR is the one who brought it up. Hello? Is this thing on?

LisaR says she’s Erika tonight, and admits to saying something about the bunny. Dorit observes that there are still strong feelings about it. In her interview, Kim says there are two years of unresolved energy. We flash back to Kim calling out LisaR on saying Kim was near death when she was nothing of the kind. Erika wishes it was different between them. In her interview, LisaR says, giving back the bunny was rude. Kim asks Erika/LisaR if they’re good, and says she wants to get a message to LisaR. Denise suggests LisaR be herself in the moment. Kim asks to have a private chat, and they sit.

Kim tells LisaR that she’s not looking for a fight, and LisaR looks beautiful. LisaR realizes she’s been over-the-top in character. Kim asks if she wants to say she’s sorry, but LisaR says Kim still hasn’t apologized for the bunny moment. Kim says, what about her? They used to have a nice relationship, and she’d be happy to go back to that, but LisaR has to be nice. LisaR agrees what she did wasn’t appropriate, but neither was what Kim did. Kim asks if LisaR can’t see her side. In Kim’s interview, she says there’s a lot of damage to repair. She doesn’t regret giving back the bunny. She was hurt by a lot of things LisaR did. LisaR says Kim caught her off-guard. She was scared to see Kim, and reacted that way. In her interview, LisaR says Kim giving the bunny back was the most hurt she’s been by this group. We flash back to Kim giving LisaR back the bunny, and tears streaming down LisaR’s face. She says it was like a gut punch. Sorry. I have no sympathy for her. Kim can be a nut, but LisaR dogged her the whole season. And if that’s the most hurt LisaR has been, she doesn’t know what hurt is. She says she’s sorry for what happened between them. Can they move on? Kim suggests forgiving each other. LisaR is glad their having this conversation under a dead angel. They hug, and Kim says, miracles happen. You never know.

Next time, Brandi (bleh) meets with Denise (I love Denise, but not so much her choice of friends), Camille says Teddi has gotten too big for her britches, Kyle plans a girls trip to France, and Camille’s house burns down.

🐍 LisaR autocorrects to lizard. Just sayin’…

💩 Stupidest. Sh*t. Ever.

One more reason to look at LisaR with disgust.

I rarely tweet, but I had to reply to this nonsense. You can say she was thoughtless. You can say the joke was tasteless or inappropriate. You can say a lot of things, but LVP is not transphobic. You, however, are a real piece of work, who should not be so proud of her big mouth.

But LVP remains a lady, acknowledging a poor choice of words.

May 27, 2019 – No Hospital, VPR Fake Out, a Double Dose of Gordon, Thrones Explained, Leslie’s Final Watch & Remembering

Standard

What I Watched Today

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

 

General Hospital

As I thought it would be, today was a rerun. At least it was a special one – the April 2nd episode where the characters had a scavenger hunt at the hospital, per the instructions in Gail’s will. Even though it was an enjoyable episode, I chose to watch People’s Court, which I love, but hardly ever get to see. I’m pleased to report that Doug Llewelyn is still just as annoying, sticking his microphone in the defeated litigant’s face, saying, so how does it feel to be a big loser? It always boggles my mind that no one has punched him out… yet.

Vanderpump Rules/Summer House

Tonight, even though the season has ended for Vanderpump Rules, the digital guide said Bravo was airing a new episode, describing it as a mash-up with Summer House. But what was listed as Vanderpump Rules was really a retrospective of the past Summer House season with some of the VPR cast – Stassi, Beau, Katie, and Schwartz coming on the scene forty-five minutes in. I felt ripped off, since it all turned into a two-hour episode of SH, half of which I’d seen already. I was like, yay! I get to hear about new cast member Jordan’s ED problems all over again. Kyle wanted to propose to Amanda, even though he’d cheated on her five minutes ago. Stassi advised against the timing, and Kyle broke down in tears. Carl did give a nice mixed metaphor when he said he got past first base and scored a touchdown. I don’t know much about sports, but I do know bases and touchdowns are from two different types of games. Next week is the finale, which is sure to have an amusing moment when Kyle asks Amanda’s father for his blessing. Her father’s response? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Looks like there might be more tears coming for Kyle.

🍳  MasterChef will begin it’s 10th season this Wednesday, May 29th at 8 pm, followed by Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back at 9 pm. I need one of those TVs where you can watch more than one show at the same time.

A happy ending for Jon Snow. No, not that kind.
