Jack calls Dusty on moving in on his family too soon, even willing to fight over it.  They cool off when Liberty has called Janet and needs to see her.  Dusty, Janet, Jack and Carly fly up to Minnesota to see Liberty and Parker.  A decision has to be made about continuing Liberty’s treatment. Liberty wants to keep going with it.  Dusty would cover it but Jack insists he (Jack) make sure his insurance will cover it. Janet tells Liberty she’s pregnant and Liberty is livid with Jack for letting this happen.  Janet consoles Liberty and explains it’s not just about the chance for a donor.  Dusty asks for a minute alone and asks/tells Liberty he wants to marry Janet.  Liberty’s moved and calls Janet in, and Dusty gives Janet a ring, as Jack enters.  Jack’s a mensch about it. Carly has taken Parker off and tells him she won’t let anything get between her and Jack again.  At EOD, Jack and Carly enjoy the idea of being together. Vienna has a drink with Barbara and Henry.  Barbara doesn’t tell Vienna about her and Henry’s recent affair.  Henry is appreciative.  Vienna finds an earring in her bed, but she’s okay with it since she and Henry were broken up.  But Vienna wants Henry to make love to her and he resists her. Katie wants to seal the deal with Henry so he can’t back out of donating the money to the hospital. She and Reid get Henry to write the check in front of them and Vienna – who can’t wait to fall in love all over again with a new and improved Henry. They go to WOAK so Katie can do a piece about the new wing of the hospital to be named after Brad. Kim and Bob are there for the segment of the show, and Barbara’s tagged along. When Henry and Barbara run into each other they share a heated moment and Barbara almost tells Henry she loves him. After they finish taping, they go to the Lakeview to celebrate. There, Henry and Barbara talk in the elevator and share that they just want someone to love them for who they are, not who they are supposed be. They almost kiss, but the elevator opens and Barbara makes a quick exit. Henry avoids Vienna, who’s looking for him.

Chris runs into Ali, who’s standoffish and insists they can’t be close because of the way she’s treated his family, particularly Chris and Casey. Chris insists no one holds a grudge, but Ali’s determined to keep their relationship professional. Bob, Kim and Katie are suspicious about Chris’ feelings towards Alison. Luke tells Noah that if Noah can’t commit to him wholeheartedly then they can’t be together. Noah admits that he can’t give Luke what he wants and they share a regretful goodbye. Luke runs into Reid, but won’t give him the satisfaction of knowing that Luke and Noah broke up. A stranger confronts Reid for being a murderer. Alison runs into dejected Noah, and offers to be his roommate. He takes her up on it.

Emily doesn’t correct Eliza when she calls her “Mama” as they shop in Fashions. When Emily spots Meg in Old Town, she panics, but Meg quickly assures her that she’s allowed to be out and about – the Deerbrook patients are on a supervised trip to town. Paul joins them and Eliza makes everyone uncomfortable by calling Emily “Mama” again. Meg takes Eliza and she and Paul spend some quality time together. Paul returns home to Emily and asks her if she minded that he spent so much time with Meg. Emily assures him she’s ok with it, and Paul gently urges her to keep her relationship with Eliza realistic and not send her confusing messages. Emily’s somewhat defensive. Meanwhile, back at Deerbrook, Meg tells her therapist she’d like to take the next step and have an overnight with her daughter.

Luke watches as an old client of Reid’s attacks him and accuses him of killing his daughter. Luke follows Reid after the ambush, but Reid won’t give him any details about the history of the incident. Reid takes out his frustration on a nurse. Luke goes home, but missed reuniting with Holden who has taken Faith back to school with Lily. Lucinda’s there watching the kids and she consoles him about his break–up with Noah. Lucinda goes, but Luke notices someone out on the terrace and hoping its Noah, he rushes out. It’s Reid. Reid admits the daughter of Judd, the guy who attacked him, did die under his watch – but only because the tumor she had was inoperable, and while he did give a year she wouldn’t have had otherwise, he still feels guilty. Luke tells Reid he respects him as a doctor. Reid’s flattered and assures Luke he won’t murder Noah. Luke tells Reid they broke-up and Reid winds up insulting Luke instead of consoling him. They share a moment fraught with sexual tension, and Reid goes. Molly discovers Faith was suspended from school. Faith tells Molly she’ll tell Lily and Holden herself. Instead Faith lets them drop her off back at school. When Lily and Holden return home, Molly realizes Faith didn’t confide in them. Molly tells them that Faith was suspended for drug use. Lily and Holden are horrified and much to Molly’s displeasure, Lily takes comfort in Holden’s arms.

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.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Don Diamont & Scott Clifton Shine In Father/Son Scenes; As Bill Watches Liam’s Meltdown Over the Accident that Killed Vinny

On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, emotional two-person scenes were the order of the day featuring three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Scott Clifton (who may nab a nominations next year for this story) and longtime soap vet, Don Diamont.

In story, Dollar Bill has done everything to protect his son by covering up all the evidence in his attempt to save Liam from surely a murder sentence and going to prison.

Bill’s theory: if anyone were to find out that Liam was driving Bill’s car when suddenly out of nowhere came Vinny (Joe LoCicero) – who Liam hates – and he hit him with the car and fatally killed the guy, they would think he had intent and motive. (However, to us there has to be more to the story! Did Vinny just randomly happen to be on the road that Liam and Bill were driving on and walking across it?)

At Bill’s place, Liam is agonizing as he keeps flashing back to the accident.  When Bill comes in from a morning jog, Liam is astonished that his father was out jogging, when they are in deep hot water for covering up their now hit and run.  Bill gets angry and tells him he actually went to see if there are were any cameras near the accident and he is happy to report there were none, so Liam is in the clear.  Therefore, Liam needs to keep his mouth shut and let this go and move on with his life and reuniting with Hope (Annika Noelle).

Not able to live with the cover-up, the lies, and what he did, Liam is insisting he has to go to the police, but Bill shouts: “You are not going to the police!” Liam goes on to his own subplot theory that they can say he hit an animal and then turn themselves in. Bill keeps firing back at his son, that he cannot do anything of the sort. He has done everything to protect his son in this mess and Liam could screw that all up with one wrong move.  Bill says, “All you have to do is…” and Liam fires back, “Pretend it never happened.”

It is then that Bill tells Liam that killing Vinny will haunt him whether he’s behind bars or a free man, and that he should opt for the latter.  Now unraveling, Liam’s convinced the police will figure out their cover-up. Just then, Bill pulls out a news report on his phone about the hit-and-run that has no leads and no ID of the body.  He assures his son there will never be any leads because he took care of everything.

Just then, Hope texts Liam wondering where he is for their lunch date.  Bill tells Liam to text her back saying something came up, he is in no condition to see anyone till he pulls himself together.  Liam texts back that he can’t make it.  When Hope texts back in response, “I hope you’re okay,” that sets up the end of the episode where Liam begins to hyperventilate and cannot catch his breathe, and is frightened and grief-stricken, and horrified at what he has done.  Bill comes to his aid and tells him he will not let anything happen to his son, and to dig deep to put this accident behind him.  Bill expresses that if Liam can’t do it himself, to lean on him.

However, Vinny was just ID’d in the hospital morgue by Finn (Tanner Novlan), so there’s that!

Kudos to both Scott Clifton and Don Diamont for the riveting scenes between father and son within the episode.

So, what did you think of Scott and Don’s performance? How will Bill and Liam be able to continue to cover-up the hit and run of Vinny? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, watch the final moments from the episode below.
