End of the line
Despite Daniel Bryan’s desire to distance himself from the craziness on E!’s Total Bellas, Brie joins him in his self-imposed exile in order to stand by her husband during a last-ditch doctor’s appointment that might clear him for the ring. And if Bryan is miserable when she gets there, he’s downright despondent when the news comes down that he is really, truly done with in-ring competition. For Brie, the development is doubly hard as she isn’t even able to soak in her own impending retirement, but after realizing he will have to remain strong for his family, Bryan begins to climb, inch by inch, out of the void.
Pretty much everybody loves Winston, Nikki Bella’s lovable little pooch. But John Cena, alas, has proven to be somewhat resistant to the little guy’s charms. Nikki thinks, at first, it’s because caring for Winston tends to put a damper on her and Cena’s date nights, but J.J. — who, you’ll remember, is expecting a child with his wife Lauren — has another theory: Given Cena’s adamant resistance to having children, he (and Nikki, for what it’s worth) likely view Winston as a stand-in for a baby and he’s not entirely sure how to handle it as a result.
Mama knows best
As Kathy’s wedding to John Laurinaitis draws ever closer, tensions between the spouses-to-be begin to spike when Kathy has found a lump in her breast, yet is choosing to keep that information secret from her children. The couple has a knock-down fight over the secrecy, and Johnny ends up throwing caution to the wind by flat-out telling J.J. and Nikki what the deal is. That leads to a confrontation between mother and children smack-dab on the eve of the wedding. During a trip to a doctor (under the condition that nobody else in the family be told about it), Kathy reveals both a family history of breast cancer and the surprise that she’s known about the lump for longer than previously indicated.
Watch the Season Finale of E!’s Total Bellas Wednesday at 8/7 C.
