Barbara wakes up in a warehouse filled with party favors and candy. She talks to a clown doll and imagines who knocked her out and locked her in there – Vienna, Katie or Emily. She eats herself sick with candy and at the EOD cries about her predicament. She’s woeful she was unable to stop Henry from marrying Vienna under false pretenses.  Henry awkwardly waits for Barbara to interrupt the wedding, but she doesn’t show. Everyone notes how hesitant Henry appears. Vienna states her owns vows about love and forgiveness and Katie hopes this theme means that Vienna told Henry about there being no baby. Henry then gives his own vows about the baby, and Katie realizes Vienna hasn’t told Henry the truth. Chris tries to calm Katie down. Katie, seething, catches the bouquet and the realization that she’s the only unwed person in the room – that she’s unwed at all – upsets her. Chris takes her home. Henry and Vienna return to their room and Vienna’s positively thrilled she’s gotten away with it all. Henry’s distant.  Katie sees Chris talking to an attractive woman, who turns out to be a doctor Chris used to work with who’d like him to join her doing work in Haiti. Katie, insecure, tells Chris he should go to Haiti since there’s nothing keeping him in Oakdale. She rushes away and Chris consults with Kim about women. Chris confronts Katie and asks her to give him a reason to stay. Barbara wakes up in the warehouse. To her surprise and horror, Chuckles the clown responds to her questions in Henry’s voice. Barbara assumes she must be going a bit mad, but she still tries her best to escape. She finds fireworks and finally sets one off to attract attention. At the EOD, she excited to hear sirens outside.  Barbara is still stuck in the warehouse.  She hears sirens but they get farther away.  She holds Chuckles, who in Henry’s voice offers her encouragement.  She puts Chuckles in a box and puts it alongside a curtain, which moves and hides a door. She pops the lock but the door opens and there’s a brick wall behind it.  A woman’s hand covers Barbara’s mouth and she wakes up with Chuckles comforting her.  Henry is heartbroken about the miscarriage, though Vienna is surprisingly rational about it.  Katie and Chris talk about his staying in town, and Katie’s reluctance to be open to starting something new.  Katie goes to see Henry and Vienna and hear about the miscarriage.  She’s shocked that Vienna went through with all the deception.  At EOD, Katie is so fed up that she has to tell Henry the truth, that there was no baby to begin with.

Emily’s happy all day that Barbara is out of the picture.  Paul, Emily and Eliza take a Christmas card photo in Old Town. Kim arrives and admits she’s nervous about Barbara’s whereabouts. Emily’s only too quick to assure everyone Barbara’s fine. Paul’s irked with Emily’s blasé attitude, so she apologizes and promises to befriend Barbara upon her return. Paul receives a postcard, seemingly from Barbara, stating that she’s on a cruise. He’s reassured.  Paul finds Will, Gwen and Hallie in Old Town.  They catch up a little bit, but really focus on the weird postcard Barbara sent from her Bermudan cruise.  Will is certain Barbara hates cruises.  And she was supposed to visit Will’s family in Carbondale, but never showed up.  Gwen and Casey catch up themselves, about his and Alison’s renewed friendship and his possible fatherhood.

Jack offers to fix up a cabin on Snyder Farm for Janet and Liberty and the baby to live in. Liberty loves the idea, thinks Gabriel could be hired to help. Gabriel doesn’t want Liberty’s charity. He goes to a high stakes poker game and is arrested when it’s busted by a cop. Jack takes him in and calls Craig. Jack can’t believe he was almost going to hire Gabriel to work on the cabin. Back at the farm, Dusty’s over to check on Janet. He learns about the cabin and is upset that Janet will take help from Jack and not him. Janet wishes they weren’t arguing all the time – so does Dusty. Jack and Carly argue again and they both long to be how they used to be – but they can’t seem to get there yet.  Craig hears that Gabriel was brought in by the police for playing illegal poker.  Craig wants Gabriel to give him a chance.  Craig hears that Gabriel was playing to earn money, figures it was for a girl.  Craig asks Jack to let Gabriel work on the farm.  Jack resoundingly declines.  Craig pleads on Gabriel’s behalf, and Gabriel overhears this.  Jack relents.  Craig and Gabriel go to the farm and Liberty hears Gabriel did it for her.  Liberty actually doesn’t want Gabriel’s help, wants to pay her own way through college.  She is excited, however, to hear that Gabriel will be working at the farm.  Gabriel starts to pull her into a kiss but she pulls away, gives him a hammer.  Parker tells Jack he’s changed his mind, he doesn’t want to go to New York for the summer program.  It’s because Liberty doesn’t want to go, wants to stay in town and work.  Jack tells him not to pin all his hopes on one girl.  Parker turns it around on Jack.  Parker is cool to Faith, but changes his mind when he sees her getting out of Snyder Pond.  Lily continues to keep Craig’s involvement with the perfume line a secret from Carly. Lily and Carly name their perfume company Carlisle Cosmetics. Lily tells Lucinda she’s going into business with Carly, and Lily’s surprised by Lucinda’s support. At Worldwide, Craig comes to try to reason with Lucinda and Dusty. Lucinda point blank refuses to lower the price of Worldwide for Craig. Lucinda ignores a call from a young hot shot trader from Chicago, Mr. Anthony Blackthorn, and Dusty questions her reasoning. Craig overhears this and finds Blackthorn. Craig assures Blackthorn they can help each other. At the EOD, it looks like Craig has figured out a way to buy into Worldwide. Lucinda’s appalled outwardly, but appears to have a trick up her sleeve.  Lucinda arranges for Francoise to sell Lily her money pit of a factory, as a means to break Craig.  Lily is suspicious.  She goes to Lucinda and says the factory will be hers and Carly’s alone.

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Reveal of Who Killed Charlie?

“Sorry Charlie!” Those were the clever words said by the killer of the evil Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) on Days of our Lives.  But evil kinda knows evil, and thus viewers learned in a reveal just who was the culprit.

DAYS fans begin to get to the truth when on Monday’s episode, while under hypnosis from Marlena (Deidre Hall), John (Drake Hogestyn) recalls opening the door to the apartment in time to see someone in a red coat with a hood (very ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ but with a fashion flare) shoot Charlie.

When “Doc” brings John out of his hypnotic state, she asks him who fired the gun?  John is horrified as he reveals it was their daughter, Belle! (Martha Madison). John shares that Belle was wearing the coat they gave her for Valentine’s Day.  A shocked John utters, “My God, Doc. Our little girl blew that punk away.”  However, Marlena refuses and does not believe Belle would shoot and kill Charlie, let alone anyone.

Jan (Heather Lindell) shows up at Marlena’s office and tells John and Marlena she is not going to be locked up, because of the deal she made for her freedom. Then, we see Jan get more inquisitive into what John and Marlena were discussing before she walked in on them.  They leave to go talk to Belle to get answers, while Jan sneaks back into the office and into Marlena’s drawer to retrieve the recording device to find out exactly what John and Marlena were talking about.

It is there when Jan is alone that viewers learn what happened the night of Charlie’s death. Jan is listening to the recording of John telling Marlena that Belle shot Charlie, but that he didn’t see Belle’s face because she was wearing the red coat.

Next, Jan flashes back to Charlie saying, “Don’t shoot,” and then firing a gunshot as Charlie falls to the ground.  We see the visual of the face of the person in the red coat and it’s Jan!  Next, Jan smirks and says, “Sorry, Charlie.”

So it seems Jan Spears has an ultimate revenge plot to rid Belle once and for all and have her locked behind bars.  How long will it be before the other Salemites catch on that Jan is the murderer?

So, were you happy to see it was Jan who was the one who killed Charlie? Did you suspect it was her? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the moment the killer is revealed below.

‘The Talk’ Returns as Sheryl Underwood Shares the ‘Trauma’ She Feels Over Incident That Led to Sharon Osbourne’s Exit

CBS’ afternoon series The Talk finally returned to the air, following the departure of Sharon Osbourne and the tense moments that went down on the March 10th episode between her and Sheryl Underwood.

Monday afternoon, co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Amanda Kloots and Carrie Ann Inaba along with diversity and inclusion expert, Donald E. Grant, were on the episode.  Grant, served as the moderator as the women discussed what happened when Osbourne came at Underwood when defending Piers Morgan’s remarks about Meghan Markle, eventually prompting an extended internal investigation by CBS.

On today’s episode, Sheryl Underwood shared: “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that ‘angry Black woman’, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

Elaine Welteroth added, “When you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace.  As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.  There have been a lot of false narratives that have been spun in the aftermath of what happened on that episode…this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak. And I think it’s really important that we have the opportunity to say that the false accusations that are swirling in the press that frame Sheryl and I as some kind of, you know, people who attacked a woman on air, and were part of some sort of, you know, conspiracy, that is absolutely, categorically false.”

She later added, “I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard.”

In addition, Underwood wanted to go on record stating that while she had received text messages from Osbourne, she hadn’t replied to them because she wasn’t sure she was supposed to during during an internal investigation. Osbourne had said that she sent texts to Underwood and had apologized for her actions.

Sheryl shared: “I have never been through something like this. I didn’t know whether you were supposed to communicate or not communicate.  I have not spoken to Sharon, I haven’t had a phone call from her, ” However, Underwood expressed that if a friend were to come up to her and greet her nicely, she would do that same, “When you’re friends with someone, you stay friends,” she said.

So, what did you think about the sentiments shared by Sheryl and Elaine during The Talk? Was this episode helpful in shining a lot on racism, and successful in dealing with what transpired on March 10th with Sharon Osbourne? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
