THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Loved Ones Learn Of Hilary’s Death; Camryn Grimes Breaks Hearts As Mariah Hosts GC Buzz

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

In another tear-jerker episode on Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, the story picks up with an effective prologue where calls come into the various characters’ cell phones as they learn that Hilary (Mishaal Morgan) passed away in Devon’s (Bryton James) arms.

Mariah (Camryn Grimes) awakes in the morning and goes downstairs, dials her phone, then looks mortified.  Neil (Kristoff St. John) comes to work at Hamilton-Winters finds an envelope with his name on it on the desk, and begins to read it, but a call comes in and he runs out.  Jack (Peter Bergman) is at the GCAC dining room, reads something on his tablet and becomes upset.  Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) comes downstairs at her place and gets ready to have her morning coffee and sees her phone and then breaks down in tears.  Each of these beats was played with no audio which enhanced the dramatic impact.

In a conversation with Sharon, a grief-stricken Mariah says she needs to do something big for Hilary.  Later, Neil gets to the hospital and finds a devastated Devon leaning against a wall and hugs him close. After Devon comes home to the penthouse, he does not want to stay citing he has business to tend to.  However, he first sits Shauna (Camryn Hamm) down and tells her that Hilary died.

Mariah shows up to Neil’s and asks if she could host GC Buzz in an honor of Hilary today.  Neil informs her that he got a resignation from Tessa.  Mariah says she had to quit because she had a last-minute opportunity (hiding the fact that Tessa is going undercover to find her sister, Crystal).

At the Dive Bar before Mariah’s live show, Sharon (Sharon Case) shows up and confronts Mariah as to why she had found a one-way ticket with her name on it and her bags packed.  Mariah explains she was planning on leaving town secretly with Tessa (Cait Fairbanks), but changed her mind after realizing how important her family in Genoa City is to her.

When the show begins, Mariah overcome and choking back tears, reports to the viewing audience that Hilary passed away, as she looks at Hilary’s empty host chair and remembers her endless jabs and biting, sarcastic humor.  She goes on to talk about Hilary’s generosity and how in the end she married the man she loves.  Devon, who had previously said he would not tune-in to the episode, is seen sobbing and is moved by Mariah’s words.   Mariah ends her episode in a heart-tugging way by saying that Hilary would want them to keep on buzzing.  She then signs off.  Neil is there for Devon as his the young man breaks down in his arms.

Following GC Buzz, Mariah is stunned when Tessa shows up.  She reveals she changed her train ticket to roundtrip.  She will not choose between Crystal and Mariah, and will be back to resume her relationship with Mariah soon.  The young women hug.

This episode featured a touching performance by Daytime Emmy-winner Camryn Grimes; who played all the emotions from grief to love, and soldiering on in the face of heartbreaking adversity and sadness.

So, what did you think of Monday’s episode of Y&R? The opening prologue of the show? Mariah’s GC Buzz Tribute episode? Tessa returning to tell Mariah she will be back for her? Comment below.

Cam was great! She is on another level. BUT, tear-jerker? Here is my problem. I hated Hillary and so did most of the town! Why all the sudden are people losing themselves over this slippery salamander? She screwed just about everyone in town on her show and F’d with Neil and Little Devon! FAKE FILLIS was friends with her for FIVE minutes and now she acts like she lost a sister! Jack really was the only one who should have been affected. He really did have a friendship with Hill. Mariah did a nice job on the BUZZ set. She… Read more »

Sadly, I didn’t cry. I didn’t care. Every time in her 5 or 6 years in GC, Hilary acted mean then nice then mean and she always expected to accepted the moment she opted to be nice again. Her death while Charlie and Lily walked around healthy after the accident (Charlie wasn’t even in a seat belt) was pretty less impactful because Hilary had no visible injuries, etc. And I hate that yet another child died for no reason on the show. ADD TO THIS, Shauna’s parents should be there for her now! She is 16 and, sure, her brother… Read more »

Actually Charlie was in a seat belt. I went back to the clip on cbs.com b/c I didn’t think he was in one either. The clip where HC gets t-boned by the bus shows that he was wearing it.

Yes, Shauna still living with Devon does not ring true. Maybe her brother is in family counseling. If so, Shauna needs to be there too. And I also don’t think she should be with Devon, but maybe he’s Daddy Warbucks now. 😉 I guess if no one calls CPS then it’s okay. And the aunt apparently wasn’t all the caring so she’s probably glad to get her out of the house. I know I would be.

It was yet another powerful episode. Wish stuff like this happened every day on all the shows.

I too was unmoved, because like others I believe Hilary’s character was so unlikable that this sudden rewrite of history is a bit much. It also bothers me that the actress was given this amazing send off story, while someone like ED, was ushered out quickly without so much as a teary goodbye. Granted ED, comes and goes from the show, but still Ashley is shipped off to Germany, while Hilary ( a minor character in show’s history) becomes the town’s saint — and I am one day ahead in Canada, so I got to see the funeral, and there… Read more »

What an odd comment, Acs. Soaps are at their best when they represent all aspects of the world.

Acs’s comment is not odd at all. We all have our opinions and preferences of what we’d rather see. I could do without some aspects, but I would rather just use my FF button, and watch the parts that interest me, than spite myself, by not watching at all. I record them all daily, and watch the SLs that interest me, and ignore the others.

Nicely worded sonnior— it’s 2018, and people cannot live in a cocoon anymore. No more closets.

ACS, you will be missing a lot of shows then. Except for B&B, all three soaps have same sex relationships.

That is the most bigoted comment….WOW!! Here I was, catching up with posts, and this is what I read?
People cannot help who they are!! It is not a choice.
Homosexuality is part of society and we would live a much healthier-stress-free-life if our hearts are more accepting.
As sonnorsolita said, all aspects of life SHOULD be represented.

I would rather a gay relationship based in reality than back-from-the-dead tales, dopplegangers, dubious parentages, and plastic-surgery makeovers.

I don’t like that Hilary was killed off. She was a great character & had wow chemistry with Devon. Not happy!!!
Don’t care about Tessa as her character is boring!!!
She should have gone, not Hilary.
Very disappointed

Tessa has no life in the show , she is useless.
The lesbian roll does not suit them at all and it is disgusting.
That Shauna looks like a trouble maker she is a bitch.

Camryn steps in as one of the very top actors in the show. I think the gathering of the team, regardless of previous relationships with Hilary, was personal as well as professional. That is a minor inconsistency in this program.

I want Camryn to move up in the cast. Tessa was not key. Mariah should have a wide scope for her character; don’t tie her down one way or the other. Right now she seems the only solid person around; although Sharon is moving up. An entire crazy troupe is difficult to watch without parameters.

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.
