Carly asks Jack to call off their investigation into Blackthorn – she’s worried it’s all about Ralph and Brad’s death – she doesn’t want Jack to go off the deep end again. Jack assures her his motives are innocent. Carly goes to the spa while Jack confronts Craig and Blackthorn. Craig’s startled to hear that Blackthorn could have any association with Ralph. Blackie denies. Meanwhile, in the spa, Carly tells Janet that she should stay away from Blackie. Janet rushes off, furious for being told what to do. Carly and Lily argue about Craig and Lily establishes they are no longer partners. Carly and Jack reunite and share that they’ve both discovered that Lucinda was behind the plot to ruin Craig. They take a romantic walk in the garden, only to run into Blackie and Janet. Later, Jack realizes Blackie had the coin Jack had given Dusty… which meant that they had to have crossed paths. Lucinda arrives at Avalon but Lily wants nothing to do with her. Lucinda receives a mysterious phone call, and visits the caller – Ralph.  Blackie’s thugs keep Dusty in a pantry. Dusty manages to head butt Blackie. Blackie exits the pantry, and runs into Janet about to enter.  Craig’s only too delighted to let Lily stay in his hotel room. He offers to take her to dinner. En route he runs into Lucinda and taunts her about his relationship with Lily. He implies that they’re intimately involved and Lucinda pushes him into a pool. Craig spots Carly arriving and asks her for help, but she pushes him back in the pool. Lily comes to his rescue and they walk back to his hotel room so he can change. Lucinda spies on Craig and Lily entering his hotel room, looking very much like a couple. She goes to Ralph and insist he call Blackthorn off so she can make amends with Lily. Lily thinks about taking over WorldWide. Craig kisses her and asks her to make love to him. Lily and Craig break off from their kiss, Lily thinking all of this is a game to Craig, who doesn’t want Lily to deny what’s going on between them.  Lily thinks he’s just like Lucinda, using people for his own personal gain.  Lily suggests he focus on being a father, redeeming himself that way.

Jack won’t give up his investigation into Blackthorn and Dusty’s whereabouts. He reassures Carly he’s acting as a cop and not because of his personal issues over Brad’s death. Carly forces Jack to check in with Margo. Margo discovers Dusty was potentially forced into a limo. Jack finds the same limo in the parking lot of Avalon Castle. He’s convinced Dusty’s being held there by Blackthorn.  Blackthorn stops Janet from entering the pantry where Dusty’s being held. He convinces Janet to meet him for dinner. Janet runs into Carly and Jack at the bar and Jack tells her that he suspects Blackthorn and Dusty have crossed paths recently. Suspicious Janet returns to the pantry, where Blackthorn once again stops her from entering. Dusty manages to make noise and Janet questions Blackthorn about what’s in the pantry.  Dusty is contained by two thugs.  They bring him around back to the dumpster where Blackthorn levels a gun on him.  But Jack shoots that gun out of Blackie’s hand and Dusty is okay. Faith wants Holden to be more concerned that Lily went to a fancy hotel with a guy, namely Craig.  Holden wants to explain that he can’t control what Lily does.  Faith knows Holden still has feelings for Lily and wants him not to just sit on them.  But Holden says he’s been chasing her a long time, maybe what loves him should find him.  Lily comes over and they work in the yard as Faith looks on, happy at the tableau. Ralph wants Lucinda, whom he knows from way back as Mary Ellen Walters, to go on the run with him.  Jack eventually finds Ralph, doesn’t shoot him, but has him arrested.  At EOD, Ralph meaningfully pretends he doesn’t know Lucinda, even from the past.

Reid admonishes Katie for sleeping with Chris. He’s thinking about Chris’s health but Katie thinks Reid’s just being a bad sport. Luke runs into Chris at the hospital and tells him that Reid’s suffering keeping Chris’ secret. Chris is furious at Reid for telling Luke that he’s sick. Luke tries to intervene, but Reid and Chris argue. Katie takes Chris to a pre-school open house in Old Town. Chris starts to feel sick and rushes to the hospital. Chris asks Luke to keep Katie at bay if she comes looking for him. Luke complies, but at the EOD Katie finds Chris in the hospital on oxygen. She demands to know what’s wrong with him. Katie wonders what’s wrong with Chris, who insists he’s fine, for most of the day.  But at the wedding, he realizes he must tell her the truth and does at the EOD, saying he’s sick and may not get better.

Barbara and Henry tell Paul, Emily, Gwen and Will that they plan to marry and would like the family to support them. Paul thinks Barbara’s perpetuating the curse of Stenbeck by marrying his son. Barbara won’t be told what to do by her son, so she leaves. Henry blasts Paul for not looking out for his mother’s happiness. Will and Gwen decide they should support Barbara and Henry. They return to Fairwinds only to find Henry and Barbara gone, and Paul stubbornly opposing the union. Henry goes to Barbara and rescinds his proposal.  Henry withdraws his proposal, saying he can’t marry Barbara because he loves her too much.  He’s worried about the Stenbeck curse that his Stenbeck blood will only continue to bring Barbara pain and misery.  But Barbara won’t have it, won’t let James continue to mar the rest of her life.  Henry relents.  Separately, Kim is excited for Barbara, though Paul is reluctant.  Barbara and Henry would get married in her LV hotel room, but are brought downstairs to the lounge where it’s set up with a makeshift aisle and everything.  Chris and Katie are there as well, as are Gwen and Will.  Eerily, many of these people see the Judge as James, threatening them, but with Barbara and Henry’s vows and kind words to each other, James is cast away and Henry and Barbara are married.  Paul asks them back to Fairwinds to burn some photographs, symbolically exorcising James from their lives, hopefully for the last time.  Barbara and Henry leave for him to carry her over the threshold as, at EOD, Paul and Emily make love. Will goes to Parker to talk about their father, Hal. Parker hints that he knows what he’d like to do with his future – but he’s not telling anyone yet. Kim and Bob see John Dixon checking into the Lakeview.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Quinn and Carter Agree to Take Their Secret to Their Graves

Well, this won’t end well for either Quinn (Rena Sofer) or Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor)! On Friday’s episode of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful it was reconciliation time.

First, at Forrester Creations, Zoe (Kiara Barnes) and Carter patch things up, after Zoe believes he had sex with Shauna (when it was in reality Quinn), and after a panic attack from Carter.  He says to Zoe, “I’m the best version of myself when I’m with you.”  Zoe is somewhat shocked and yet overjoyed and she is ready to give him another chance too, and so they wind up in each other’s arms, but not without a guilt-ridden look from Carter.  He knows he has been sleeping with his dear friend Eric’s (John McCook) wife, not Shauna.

Meanwhile, at the Forrester Mansion, Eric tells Quinn he has been thinking about their marriage and comes to the realization that he has not been fair to her.  Quinn replies, “No. Eric it’s me who hasn’t been fair to you.”  Eric then launches into how badly he feels for making Quinn feel undesirable. Quinn responds with, “I’m sorry too!”  She goes on to say that Eric’s kindness and affection means everything to her, and how his love helps her not give into her darker impulses.  They embrace and tell each other they love each other.

Later, Carter gets a call from Quinn.  She tells him that Eric and her are back together, and he shares the same news about he and Zoe.  They thank God for Shauna (Denise Richards) saving the day, but Quinn tells Carter they have to take the secret of their affair to their graves.  Carter replies, “To our graves.”

Now the questions become: will Quinn and Carter be able to stop their impulses, or hit the sheets yet again?  Who will find out first about their affair … Eric or Zoe, or will someone else come upon the information and might blackmail ensue? Share your theories via the comment section, but first check out the final moment from Friday’s cliffhanger of B&B.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Passion Ignites for Carter and Quinn

CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful has been known over the years to surprise viewers with a cliffhanger they may have not seen coming, or a moment within an episode, that was unexpected.  Now, while often on daily episodes of soaps there is repetition in scenes and stories, Friday’s show surprised many!

In story, Quinn (Rena Sofer) went over to see Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) to try to get him to forgive Zoe (Kiara Barnes) and give her another chance, only things don’t go as planned.

Carter tells Quinn when he sees Zoe he wants to make love to her, and that it’s been a long time since he has had sex. Quinn can relate informing Carter expressing that it’s been a really long time since she felt wanted by Eric (John McCook).  She says that it feel like “We’re strangers”, and that when she reaches out to touch Eric he actually recoils.  Quinn adds that she is starving for affection, and that sometimes she just wants to be held.  Carter adds that he does not want to chase anyone, especially if she has feelings for someone else.  He wants someone who truly wants him.

As the seduction between Quinn and Carter begins, she recalls how Eric’s love gave her confidence and made her feel sexy and how she just wants to feel that again.  Next, Carter moves in close to Quinn, which prompts her to whisper, “We can’t”, but oh they do! Cue the music, the making love montage, the candles, the sofa, the camera cuts back and forth, and voila, Carter and Quinn make love.

This is a great twist for B&B, which will clearly give Lawrence Saint-Victor and Rena Sofer a secret to play.

Now the question becomes, will Carter and Quinn be the next hot couple on the show, or will this just be one night of bliss? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
