Phyllis Rose drops her bombshell and shows Tess’s photo of Charlie and Echo kissing. Natalie’s aghast, telling her mother that she’s sure it’s been photo-shopped, but Viki sets her straight. When she reveals that Tess sent her the same photo and likely leaked it to Phyllis, Natalie gets mad and goes to confront Tess. But Tess arrives at Llanfair instead, telling Viki to give up her fight for Ryder’s custody. Tess accuses Viki of being a failure in marriage and in motherhood. She hammers at Viki until Viki is writhing in some sort of private struggle. Tess thinks she’s having a heart attack until Viki reveals that she’s Niki Smith. Bo and Clint have it out about Matthew. Bo laces into him for everything he’s done, swearing Clint will get what’s coming to him. Clint keels over from a heart attack. Nora levels with Matthew about the fact that he murdered someone, asking if he can live with what he’s done.  Matthew reveals the depth of his guilt.  Nora asks if he wants to confess and be punished for his crime. Dorian’s horrified to learn of Echo and Charlie’s affair and that they’re in love. She accuses Echo of having known all along that Charlie wasn’t Rex’s father. Ford feels terrible that Tess unleashed the photo of Viki and Charlie, expressing sympathy for Viki. Tess sets him straight about Viki, explaining that she’s the reason Tess exists. Her alter, Niki, sat in bars and left Jess alone with an abusive man. Jess created Tess to protect herself. Ford tries to comfort her, but she pulls away. Natalie arrives and gives Ford a piece of her mind for teaming up with Tess.

Blair and Tea discuss John’s suspicion of Tomas. Tea fiercely defends her brother while Blair remains uncertain about Tomas. Tea expresses relief that Blair isn’t dating Tomas. Taking this as a challenge, Blair makes a date with Tea’s brother, privately revealing she can use the opportunity to find out if he’s hiding something. Tomas confronts John about questioning Tea and Blair about him. John probes for information and later reveals he has covertly obtained Tomas’ fingerprints. When he runs the prints through the system, he finds a match, but discovers any information about their owner is classified. Starr admits to James she’s uncomfortable about his ex-girlfriend staying with him. She makes Deanna an offer she can’t refuse – her own room at La Boulaie. Tess’s haranguing has brought out Niki Smith. The two alters strike a deal to assure Tess custody of Ryder. Dorian finds Clint in the throes of a heart attack but refuses to help him unless he tells her the truth about whether or not Echo knew all along that he, and not Charlie, was Rex’s father. Believing her secret is safe, Echo enjoys time with Charlie. Gigi accepts Rex’s wedding proposal.

Niki is nearly found out when she and Tess are happened on by Natalie. Tess provides Niki with a cover story for her shocking appearance; later, the two reset their plan to hijack the judge’s decision regarding Ryder’s custody. Dorian alerts Clint’s household to his heart attack. Joey and Dorian accompany Clint to the hospital. Natalie gets word of Clint’s heart attack from Joey. Niki (as Viki) declines to go with Natalie to the hospital, using Liam as an excuse. Dorian is on the verge of telling Joey about Aubrey and Cutter’s relationship when Natalie arrives, explaining that Viki stayed behind. Dorian makes a beeline for Viki. Dorian arrives at Llanfair to find Niki, exasperated at having to keep up her ruse as Viki. Dorian delivers the information she exacted from Clint, that Echo always knew the truth about Rex’s paternity. Niki reacts as appropriately as she can and Dorian is left wondering why Viki isn’t as angry as she expected her to be. Aubrey is left behind at the mansion with Rama, who wonders how Clint’s condition might affect their future. Aubrey confesses to Rama how Tess is now caught up in their scheme, and that she has taken an interest in Cutter. Rama wonders if Aubrey has a similarly genuine interest in Joey. At Capricorn, Kelly lets Cutter know that she knows the truth about him and Aubrey – but plans to do nothing with it. Tess arrives and invites Cutter to a dance. Cristian and Kelly look on angrily but can do nothing about it and previously Cutter told them how his plan to spend more time with Tess (in the “hope” she’ll give way to Jessica) has received Joey’s blessing. Rama and Cristian have another friendly cross. James gets the impression that Ford is softening on Tess. Ford learns of Deanna’s arrival in town. Starr shows Deanna to her new digs in Langston’s old room. Starr pumps Deanna for information about her relationship with James.

Marty hears John making plans with Kelly. Marty pays a visit to Kelly and suggests she could break up Kelly and John the same way she broke up Natalie and John. Kelly alerts John to Marty’s discomfiting visit and he goes to talk to Dr. Buhari about her, but instead he runs into Natalie. Marty tells Dr. Buhari that Liam is John’s baby, not Brody’s. Brody brings Liam to the hospital to comfort Natalie. Tomas pays a visit to Todd and is going to do something to him with a syringe when Dani and Nate interrupt him. They find the dropped syringe which the nurse says is not the kind used at the hospital. Nate thinks Tomas dropped it and Shaun advises them to tell the police. Tomas makes a mysterious phone call saying he was alone with Todd but unable to finish the job. Blair makes Jack work at Capricorn over his vacation. She steps out and two thugs come in and rough him up, warning him to stay away from Shane. Tomas enters just in time and fights off the thugs, which Blair sees. Gigi and Rex take Shane for a therapy session and Gigi is upset that she can’t be in on Shane’s sessions or know what he’s telling the doctor. Blair leaves Jack at the hospital briefly, and Shane and Jack are face to face. Rex hears about Clint’s heart attack and acts uninterested (to Natalie’s dismay). But later when he tells Gigi about it, we see he’s rocked. Bo learns of Clint’s heart attack from Brody.

John is deeply affected when he holds Liam while Natalie follows up on the syringe Nate and Dani discovered in Todd’s room. Marty confesses to Dr. Buhari that Liam is, in fact, John’s baby with Natalie and that she switched the results. Dr. Buhari is troubled by this information and we wonder if she’ll tell John when he comes to see her. Natalie and Marty come face to face. Blair and Kelly wonder why Todd is hiding a file with a picture of himself pre-reconstruction. Blair tells Kelly that Tomas has his own file on pre-reconstructed Todd. After Blair leaves, Kelly tries to decode Todd’s file. Tomas is surprised by Calmar’s arrival. Calmar regrets having encouraged Tomas to come to Llanview. Tomas alludes to having a job to finish. Blair arrives to find the men discussing her. Jack encounters Shane for the first time since his suicide attempt and accuses him of having his father hire thugs to beat him up. Shane is upset with his parents for having told anyone about his having tried to kill himself, and Rex uses this as an opportunity to bridge a gap with his son. Gigi returns to Dr. Buhari’s office to retrieve Shane’s backpack and is curious when she sees a tape of Shane’s private psychiatric session. Jack demands that the police arrest Rex for having had him assaulted.

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.
