With both Brooke and Taylor taking a different side about Thomas, Stephanie finds herself squarely in the middle and with a definite opinion. Stephanie agrees with Taylor that there is no denying Brooke’s scandalous behavior at Forrester Creations, and with the Forrester family, but also feels it’s not realistic to forbid Thomas from being in contact with his father’s wife. Taylor feels betrayed that Stephanie is taking Brooke’s side and after Brooke leaves, expresses to her friend that she feels she’s lost so much from Stephanie to Brooke. Stephanie apologizes to Taylor and reassures her that she’s not losing her friendship. Angry, Taylor let’s Stephanie know that it’s not “if” Brooke will go after her son, but “when”. Stephanie is left speechless when Taylor goes on an obsessive rant about Thomas needing protection from Brooke. Amber attempts to comfort Oliver when he arrives home early from his photo shoot with Hope. After learning how Liam barged in and took a willing Hope away, Amber offers Oliver a sympathetic ear and a bit of advice. Liam takes Hope to a secluded area on the beach where he speaks to her candidly about her relationship with Oliver and how the death of his mother has changed him. Hope and Liam share a steamy kiss. Taylor leaves Stephanie and heads to Ridge’s office to talk to him about the situation. When she enters, she becomes convinced that her worst fear has become a reality, when she sees Thomas in a steamy embrace with Brooke.  Taylor is relieved to find out she is mistaken and that the blonde girl Thomas is kissing is really “Summer.” Thomas demands an explanation for his mother’s behavior. When she admits she thought it was Brooke, Thomas promises her that will never happen. Thomas assures Taylor that he doesn’t resent her for giving her shares of the company to Steffy and explains that Brooke is helping to make everything okay because she is helping him to work his way up the ladder the old fashioned way, with hard work. Taylor agrees to stop fighting Brooke and Thomas’ partnership and the Taboo line. Stephen, Donna and Katie meet with Brooke for lunch. The Logan family discuss Donna and Stephen’s recent trip to Paris and Donna admits that she still misses Eric.  Stephen broaches the topic of his continuing relationship with Pam and asks his daughters to let bygones by bygones and to move forward. Stephen, Donna and Katie are skeptical when Brooke reveals that Stephanie’s cancer has changed her perspective on life. They query her about the kiss with Thomas. They are shocked when Brooke tells them that Stephanie supports her in this because it has created quite a buzz for the Taboo line. Brooke continues to defend Thomas and convinces her family that the publicity the kiss generated is good for business.  Katie comments on how good Brooke and Thomas look together. Brooke looks at pictures of Thomas and tells her sisters she sees Ridge in his son.

Amber and Oliver panic when Aggie arrives unannounced. Amber hides on the patio and listens as Aggie tells Oliver not to give up on Hope and begins to malign Amber.  When Aggie goes to shut the patio door, she sees Amber in hiding. Amber shows herself and gives Aggie attitude for what she said about her. Oliver tries to continue to cover to his sister, but Amber reveals the truth; that she and Oliver are living together.  Oliver comes to Amber’s defense when Aggie demands that he get rid of Amber immediately. Oliver becomes affected when Aggie asks how living with Amber will improve his chances of reuniting with Hope. Aggie leaves and Amber begins to pack. Oliver reminds her that she doesn’t need to defend herself anymore. Amber flirts with Oliver and tells him that while she wouldn’t steal the Forrester designs again, she would definitely still make the moves on him. Although Oliver assures her that he doesn’t see her like Aggie does, Amber is still disappointed when he tells her that she does need to leave. While Aggie goes to see Hope to beg her to give Oliver one more chance, Amber begs Oliver not to throw her out of his house. Amber gets seductive with Oliver and he becomes tempted by her offer. Hope attempts to get Aggie to understand that she and Oliver will always be friends but that she is with Liam now. Taylor explains to Ridge about her case of mistaken identity with Thomas and his model friend. She admits to her ex-husband that he is the only person who truly understands her. Taylor expresses her relief that she and Thomas were finally able to have an honest conversation and promises Ridge that she will try and trust Brooke. Taylor is beside herself when Ridge admits to her that if her fears would have been correct, and there were truly more between Brooke and Thomas than just the fashion line, his marriage would have been over. He goes on to say that if his marriage to Brooke fell apart he would return to her. Whip stands by unnoticed, but has heard part of his wife’s conversation with her ex-husband.

Ridge and Brooke make love and then discuss Stephanie, Taylor and Thomas. Ridge is surprised when Brooke tells him that Stephanie sided with her today over Taylor. Brooke and Ridge look at photos and remark how happy they are to be together and growing old. Brooke pledges to Ridge to never let anything happen again. Taylor is joyful at Ridge’s admission to her and calls Stephanie over to tell her all about it. As Taylor recounts to Stephanie her conversation with Ridge, Stephanie becomes concerned that Taylor may have misconstrued Ridge’s words and that Taylor may be holding out hope for a future with him. Taylor is positive that Brooke will let Ridge down and have another indiscretion. Stephanie expresses that she hopes that Brooke has changed, especially given all of the time that they have spent together lately. Stephanie thinks Taylor is still in love with Ridge. Amber tells Oliver she admires him and has learned so much for him. Oliver doesn’t allow Amber to berate herself for all of the mistakes she has made in the past. She wholeheartedly apologizes to him for all the messes she has gotten him into. Oliver surprises Amber and gives her a key to the apartment above the garage. She is genuinely moved, and tells him that he is more amazing than she realized and she hopes Hope knows how incredible he is. Aggie arrives to visit Oliver and is pleased that Amber is not there.  She tells her brother of her visit to Hope and urges him to go to her and tell her that he loves her.  Hope is surprised to see Amber at Forrester Creations. Hope lets Amber have it when she reveals she was hoping to see Rick to get a job. She accuses Amber of being a manipulator who enjoys hurting people. Amber is genuine when she tells Hope her true thoughts about Oliver and is pleased with herself when she plants a seed of doubt about Liam.

Bill and Justin are investigating the Liam limousine situation. Justin has uncovered information from the limousine company. Bill is angry and wants answers. When he finds out that Oliver was behind the stunt, he vows revenge. Amber and Hope continue to talk about Hope’s love life. Amber continues to persuade Hope that Liam is just like his father and she should not give up on Oliver.  Hope doesn’t want to listen but she doesn’t want to leave, either.  Liam visits Oliver at home and demands he stop making moves on his girl. Oliver reminds Liam that he works with Hope and that him taking her out of a photo shoot was unacceptable. The two argue over the Hope/Oliver kiss and who kissed who. The argument escalates and each man is convinced he is the right one for Hope.  Amber arrives home and starts to come through the patio door but Oliver waves her away. She sees Liam and hides on the patio. Hope thanks Ridge and Brooke for everything they have done for her. Her parents ask Hope why she seems blue and she admits that it is because of Oliver and Liam. They advise her to always put herself first when it comes to Liam and to make her intentions clear with Oliver, even if it may hurt him. Hope explains that it is not as simple as that, that she is still torn between the two of them. They are interrupted by a call from Liam who tells Hope he wants to see her tonight; that he has made plans and that she will be his top priority.

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.
