Emily finds Iris drinking in the Fairwinds Wine Cellar, with the place a wreck.  Iris thinks she’s been caught and that Emily has also seen Barbara, but when they talk to Gwen it becomes clear she has not, and is disappointed only in Iris’ drinking.  Iris, glad she hasn’t been found out, plays up her shame and throws herself on Gwen’s mercy.  Gwen understands, and actually blames Iris’ relapse on Emily, for not being as kind as she could be.  Emily can’t believe it.  Iris goes to Barbara’s room and gets ready to cash a large check.  At EOD, Emily is again disbelieving when she finds Barbara in the wine cellar. Emily has found Barbara tied up in the wine cellar.  She toys with her little bit, teasing her about it being nice with Barbara bound and gagged.  Iris finds this scene and knocks Emily over the head with a wine bottle, then ties Emily to Barbara.  Emily reveals to Barbara that Henry and Vienna are no longer together, and that ever since Barbara “disappeared” Henry has been spending all his time trying to find her.  Barbara’s faith is renewed and now she needs to escape to get home to Henry.  Gwen calls the hospital to know when to pick Iris up but hears that there is no AA meeting at Memorial today.  Henry has more or less confirmed that Barbara is in trouble.  He still considers Vienna a suspect.  Iris, sensing their getting close, suggests it could be Emily – who she’s tied up in the wine cellar.  Henry, still in his get-up, goes to the Warehouse with Paul and Myra Haft, the psychic.  Myra says Chuckles has been witness to much pain and suffering in the room, but confesses that there’s not much to offer in the way of evidence or testimony.  But Henry keeps believing, and in the end finds the scrap of paper on which Barbara had written that she was in trouble.  At EOD, Henry is vindicated.

Chris has his blood tested for an illness and Reid is concerned.  Both prepare for a meeting with union reps at Al’s, Reid with Luke, and Chris with Katie.  But Chris snaps at Katie because of his stress and later finds out that he’s tested positive for a serious condition.  Chris falls asleep while preparing for the meeting and is later chewed out by Bob for appearing lackadaisical, the opposite of how he should act if he wants to be COS, considering he’s Bob’s son.  Reid, meanwhile, takes Luke’s advice (mostly) and knocks the meeting out of the park.  Luke and Reid go for dinner at Metro.  Luke talks about Noah, and Reid is uncomfortable at that.  Later, Alison sides with Luke that Noah has been a big part of his life and Reid will have to accept hearing about him.  Noah is moving to LA in September.  Meanwhile, at Metro, Katie and Chris, and Casey and Alison, are also there.  Chris asks Reid to give him an injection, and he does so in the restroom.  Katie later complains to Reid that Chris has been hot and cold with her and Reid, knowing what’s going on with Chris’ health, asks her to be patient, while having already encouraged Chris to tell her the truth tonight.

Lucy goes to Craig’s room and they have an awkward reunion. Johnny returns with a scraped knee and Craig’s alarmed, internally, that Blackthorn could have been the man who knocked Johnny over as part of his threat. Craig accuses Blackthorn of attacking his kid, and Blackthorn denies but still wants his money.   Carly’s informed by Lily that there’s no perfume factory and that Craig was the silent partner. Carly’s upset that Lily would let Craig into their business plan. Carly turns to Jack for emotional support. Together they will look into Craig and Blackthorn.  Carly overhears Craig and Blackthorn talking about their deal. She confronts Craig, and he denies that helped Carlisle fail. Carly tells Jack that she wants to set up Blackthorn to get to the truth of the matter. Jack will let her if she wears a wire.  Dusty and Lucy wake up together. Dusty rushes off to a meeting with Teri, leaving Lucy wondering about his feelings for her. Dusty tells Teri he saw Blackthorn and Janet kissing. Teri goes to Janet and encourages her to take action before she loses Dusty. Janet takes lasagna to Dusty’s room, only to find him back in Lucy’s embrace. Jack takes distraught Janet home from the Lakeview, where she saw Dusty and Lucy in bed together. Jack tells Janet she has no one to blame but herself, since she pushed Dusty away so often. Janet concedes that Jack has a point. Dusty tells Janet that he’s sorry she was hurt by his actions, but he can’t apologize for not being perfect – he never said he was.  Janet can’t accept Dusty’s love since he slept with Lucy. Liberty defends her. Janet takes Blackthorn up on his offer to meet. Meanwhile, Jack and Carly can hardly resist the heat when Carly unbuttons her shirt so Jack can wire her. Holden walks in on them, diffusing the moment. Carly finds Blackthorn in the Lakeview Lounge and flirts with him in the hope of discovering some evidence of his corrupt past. Blackthorn is about to admit to something when Janet walks into the lounge.

Gabriel hints to Lucinda that he knows she’s behind the sabotage of Carlisle. Lucinda goes to Worldwide only to find a crying Lucy. Lucy berates Lucinda for coaxing her back to town and into Dusty’s arms when Dusty loves another woman. Lucy and Gabriel meet for the first time and bond over memories of Lidia. Lucy tells Gabriel she’s leaving because she can’t put up with her family. Gabriel confesses that he knows Lucinda set Craig up.  Craig receives a threat.  Lucy advises Gabriel to do whatever he’d like with the information that Lucinda set up Craig for failure. Gabriel goes to tell Craig, but Craig, worried about Blackthorn’s threat to his children, tells Gabriel to stay away from him. Hurt Gabriel goes to the Snyder pond. In Fashions, Liberty berates Lucy for sleeping with Dusty and ruining her mother’s happiness. Lucy tells Liberty that Janet already won. Liberty joins Gabriel at the pond, where they console each other.  Craig’s freaked out by the bomb threat he’s received. Dusty learns of Blackthorns menace to Johnny. Dusty threatens Blackthorn at Al’s. He leaves, only to run into Lucy who’s there to say goodbye.

Holden tells Lily he’ll always rescue her, no matter what. Lily doesn’t want to need rescuing. Holden recommends she stop hanging out with Craig then. Lily’s not entirely convinced. Lily meets Holden, who presents her with the necklace she hocked to get them flown back in time for Holden’s wedding. Lily’s touched by the gesture, until Holden starts to go off on Craig. Lily tries to convince Holden that Craig isn’t to blame, but they argue instead. Lily walks off, only to come home to find Sierra and Lucy there to warn her about Craig as well. They discuss how Lucinda’s played them like chess pieces and they bond.

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.
