Henry wakes up from a nap to find himself handcuffed to the bed. Henry resists Vienna’s romantic overtures, when he’s saved by a knock on the door – Barbara. Barbara’s come with wedding dress materiel samples, which Vienna examines in the bathroom, leaving Henry in a compromising position in front of Barbara. Uneasy Barbara helps Henry out of his handcuffs, when Vienna returns with a big hug for Barbara. Barbara leaves, and Henry accuses Vienna of keeping him hostage so she can try to get pregnant without Henry’s consent. Henry and Vienna continue their fight about Vienna tricking him into having a child. Henry admits he can’t rush into getting married and tells Vienna he needs space. They should stay in separate rooms. Henry goes to Katie for advice, and she tells him to after what makes him happy. Vienna drowns her sorrows in vodka at Yo’s. Meanwhile, Barbara goes on a blind lunch date with Rex, an anchor Katie knows at WOAK. Rex is full of himself, but Joe, a handsome pilot, helps Barbara escape her date, in exchange for dining with him. They enjoy each other’s company until Barbara drops Henry’s name one too many times. Barbara apologizes and Joe forgives her. Henry walks in and it’s clear he’s going after Barbara – she’s who makes him happy. Henry’s surprised to see Barbara with a handsome older man.  Back at Yo’s Vienna’s found company – Casey – freshly stung from seeing Ali and Chris hanging out together. Vienna realizes Casey has the same physical features as Henry, so she liquors him up and suggests they leave together. Henry scares off Barbara’s date, then takes her to Yo’s for a disco dance contest.  They’re tied with another couple when the woman hurts her leg and Henry/Barbara win by default. Vienna and Casey have unprotected sex.  Casey’s cool with it as long as they don’t kid themselves.  Vienna hopes she gets pregnant.

Carly finds distraught Craig in the boiler room. He drunkenly acts apologetic for what happened to Gabriel. Carly puts it together that Craig burned down Monte Carlo to get the insurance money. Carly takes Craig back to his hotel room after he’s gotten even more drunk at Yo’s. He passes out and she prints out evidence from his computer that he stole from Parker’s trust fund. Carly tells Margo to come over and take care of her drunk brother. Carly goes home where she tries to keep Parker calm, but he’s about to explode with the secret that he and Gabriel fought before the fire. The doctor says it doesn’t look good for Gabriel. Margo goes to Craig’s room, off Carly’s call, and finds the evidence that he stole from Parker’s trust fund. Jack encourages Janet not to go back to work so soon after returning from her father’s funeral. Janet needs to make money to get her own place and move out of Carly’s. Dusty interviews new hostesses but is unable to accept anyone but Janet for the position. He’s thrilled when she arrives to work. They both bond over Janet’s baby kicking for the first time. So does Jack when he arrives, making Dusty slightly jealous. Janet tells Dusty she will have to get a different job and make more money. Dusty offers to give her a raise, but Janet doesn’t want a hand out. Janet starts to move into her new apartment. Dusty continues to secretly fund her move and make her life easy by paying the landlord to watch over her. Janet walks up to Dusty as he’s negotiating with the landlord and asks him why he’s there.  Meanwhile, Carly schools Parker in lying, so he’ll be able to react convincingly when confronted about his trust fund having been emptied.  Jack tells him, and Parker does a great job.  Carly wants to go to the police station to hear what Craig has to say, and when she gets there, she knees him.  Privately, Craig says he did it for her, thinking he’d be able to replace the money.  Meanwhile, Jack and Margo go over Craig’s records and see a private jet ride from Oakdale to Melrose Park that Jack says was Gabriel.  Margo then surmises Gabriel was blackmailing Craig, and Craig might have done anything to get rid of his blackmailer, and make some money back. Jack’s semi convinced Craig’s telling the truth about never attempting to harm Gabriel. Parker’s spooked that Jack will quickly put together that Parker was responsible for knocking Gabriel out. Carly tries to calm him down, but Parker panics that he’ll never be able to keep the truth from Jack each time they run into each other at Milltown. Carly tells Jack that he must move out, but uses his need to live near Janet as an excuse. Craig gets out on bail, and flips out on Dusty for allowing Johnny to sprain his wrist while he was gone. Craig finds a guilty Parker in Gabriel’s hospital room at the EOD, but Gabriel’s gone. A nurse tells them Gabriel was removed due to a life-threatening crisis. Lucinda and Lily argue. Lucinda thinks Lily should use this time of crisis to reel in Holden. Lily thinks they shouldn’t think about that when Gabriel’s lying in a hospital bed.

Molly’s sick of Lily getting all of Holden’s attention, so she agrees to meet with Silas, and then let’s Holden discover this. Holden rushes off to rescue her and berates her for tricking him into paying attention to her. Ali’s disappointed Casey was hurt by seeing her with Chris – especially since they were only together because Katie set them up again. She tells Chris that hanging out with him was a mistake.  Chris tells Katie that she should stop playing matchmaker to disguise her own loneliness. Katie denies and they have a passionate argument. At the EOD, Chris tells Jacob they should find Katie a man.

It’s the day of Noah’s surgery. Luke comforts Noah and films them together, right before Noah’s led off by a nurse. Reid operates on Noah, but there’s a complication – a leaky blood vessel. Reid, matter of fact, tells Luke they won’t know the extent of the damage to Noah’s brain until he wakes up. Luke’s devastated.  Reid is upset with himself about Noah’s surgery, enough for Bob to order him away from the hospital for a time.  Luke wonders if Reid slipped up on purpose.  Reid is upset but later, he and Luke come back together. They are on their way to making love when Luke pulls back.  He can’t deal with it and goes to see Noah.  Reid watches the scene, then hears Luke say Noah’s been the only one for him. Reid gets it and backs away, respectful but hurting.

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. She unbuttons his shirt.  Quinn whispers, “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.
