Lauren and Jana are hopeful that the fire will burn enough to catch someone’s attention until Ryder arrives and sees what is going on. Meanwhile, Sarah tries to convince Patty that Michael and Phyllis are the only things that stand between their ultimate goals and killing them is the only way to get it. At the mansion, Jack asks Jamie for more background on Emily, trying to figure out just who his wife is. Later, when Patty has a hard time with the idea of killing someone in cold blood, Sarah plays on Patty’s insecurities. Everyone tries to stop Victor from confessing but he won’t back down. Michael manages to get a word alone with Victor but Victor only tells him and Nick that it is time the world knew how Adam died. Michael and Nick both plead with Victor to think about what he is doing but Victor refuses to change his mind. Outside the interrogation room, Phyllis wonders to Nick and Sharon if maybe Victor is actually finally telling the truth about Adam’s murder. Daisy arrives as Ryder is stomping out the fire and realizes that someone may have seen the smoke already. Daisy tells Ryder to gag Lauren and Jana while she tries to head off anyone who may come looking for the fire. Meanwhile, Jack bursts in Patty’s session with Sarah to bring Jamie by and Sarah gets out of the line of fire quickly. Patty greets Jamie warmly and tries to use the information Emily gave her about her brother, which she quickly realizes was false. Overwhelmed by Jack’s scrutiny, Jamie and Sarah’s plan, Patty bursts into tears. Later, a cop shows up at the zoo in search of the source of the fire and Daisy and Ryder put on a show for him until Ryder gets arrested while pretending to be a homeless man who started the fire. Victor recounts for Owen and Chance how he killed Adam. Nick, however, refuses to believe that Victor could ever kill his own flesh and blood. Phyllis and Sharon are in agreement that they would rather see Victor go to prison than Nick because Nick’s children need him right now. Later, Chance doesn’t believe a word of Victor’s confession and decides to lock both Victor and Nick up. Patty sidesteps her bizarre behavior by saying that she just always wanted a strong connection with her siblings and wished she had that with Jamie. Jack tells her that she and Jamie can start over but right now they need to get down to the police station because Chance has more questions about Adam. Jack arrives at the police station with Patty and Jamie and while Patty is giving her statement, Jack learns that Victor has confessed to Adam’s murder but doesn’t buy that he is doing it for selfless reasons. Chance gets in Phyllis’s face about Nick and Jack is forced to pull her aside to calm her down. Phyllis admits to Jack that for at time she believed that Nick may have killed Adam for Sharon and Faith. Meanwhile, Patty bribes Jamie to leave town by giving him Emily’s prescription pad and some cash. Lauren manages to get free from her binds and scratches Sarah. Meanwhile, Michael sees Ryder being booked at the police station and confronts him about what has happened to Lauren and why she seems so different. Later, Jamie tells Jack that “Emily” has definitely changed as he leaves the station. Sarah calls Patty and asks her if she is in on the plan and Patty agrees to it. Phyllis and Sharon decide to work together to clear Nick’s name. Meanwhile, Victor continues to tell Nick that he killed Adam but Nick refuses to believe it.  While at Mac’s doctor’s appointment, Lily tells Cane that her doctor wants to start her on chemo again but that it could save her life or it could also kill her. Later, Cane and Lily learn that they are having a little boy and girl, which overwhelms Lily. Neil and Ashley’s intimate night together is interrupted when Tucker shows up uninvited. Ashley, however, is stunned when Tucker asks her to take over as CEO of Jabot. Later, Tucker pitches Ashley as to why he wants her at Jabot and only her and Ashley agrees to consider it but Neil can see that she really wants it. Lauren and Jana realize that Sarah is going after everyone Sheila had a grudge against, which includes Amber. Meanwhile, Daniel sees Amber sketching a picture of her and Little D and the distance between them continues to grow. Sarah learns that Michael and Kevin are about to question Ryder at the station and she calls Daisy to make sure she stops it before Ryder can tell them anything. At the station, Ryder won’t tell Michael anything but is affected when Michael tells him that Kevin is on his way down. Later, Lauren and Jana plan what their life will be like once they finally get out of their cage and free of Sarah. Kevin arrives at the station and tells Ryder that he has no reason to live anymore without Jana and Ryder tells him that he can give Kevin a reason. Meanwhile, Daniel takes Fen out for a “guys” night Amber feels left out until “Lauren” stops by for a visit. Amber spills to Sarah everything about Little D and Deacon’s “Dragon Lady” that he was hiding his son from, unaware that Sarah is the one that that Deacon was referring to. Later, just as Kevin is getting to Ryder, Ryder is reminded just how dangerous Sarah is and refuses to tell Kevin anything about where Jana is. Meanwhile, Amber and Daniel let Sarah leave with Fen and Amber admits to Daniel that the reason she is thinking about Little D today is because it’s his birthday.

Jill runs into Tucker and he tells her that he found the perfect woman to run Jabot and she mistakenly believes that he is referring to her. Meanwhile, Neil isn’t interested in talking about Tucker or his offer, instead he grabs Ashley and kisses her deeply, to which she responds which leads them back to making love. Later, Jill realizes that Tucker isn’t talking about her as the CEO of Jabot and ends up throwing her drink in Tucker’s face. At Brad’s, Neil tells Ashley that he will support her no matter what she decides about Tucker’s offer, but does offer a word of warning not to trust him. As Cane and Mac are discussing the babies, Lily begins to wonder if she will even be around when the babies are born. Later, Lily tells Cane that she will do the chemo and whatever else it takes to be here when their children are born. Amber and Daniel realize that they just want different things in their lives. Meanwhile, Lauren promises Jana that they will be home with their families before the full moon. Later, Michael learns that Ryder posted bail and that “Lauren” picked up Fen from Daniel’s without his permission.

Michael isn’t happy when he finds Sarah and Fen at the coffeehouse and takes Fen with him leaving Sarah angry and alone. Later, Sarah gets a call from Patty who wants to discuss their “plan.” Everyone who was at the cabin gathers at the Abbott mansion at Phyllis and Sharon’s bequest. Patty arrives and makes a scene when she sees Phyllis there which forces Jack other the edge and he blurts out that he wants a separation from Emily. After Patty leaves, Sharon and Phyllis make a plea to the group to band together and take a stand against the D.A.’s office. They ask them to help them sue the office in order to send a message to the D.A. that what he is doing to their families has to stop. Later, Heather and Rafe refuse to help the Newmans or Abbotts with the suit and Michael advises them that it could backfire on them which makes Ashley decide against it as well. She tells them that she would do anything that gets her locked with Victor and she can’t admit that she doesn’t believe Victor didn’t kill Adam. Daniel and Amber continue to argue over the issue of Little D and their marriage. After seeing how much Amber is hurting Daniel tries to come up with a compromise. Later, Amber begins to panic when she can’t get a hold of her mother in Furnace Creek. Amber tells Daniel that she will wait 24 hour to hear from her mother, otherwise she is going to look for Little D. Owen starts to threaten Nick and Victor when he doesn’t get the answers he is looking for. Meanwhile, Jack and Ashley are shocked when they decide to pass on the lawsuit but Billy sides with the Newmans. Billy presents his case that Adam had too many enemies to count, even outside this room. Just as he is swaying Jack and Ashley, Owen arrives to the party. Meanwhile, Heather reveals to Rafe that she tipped Owen off to the meeting at the Abbotts. Heather wonders to Rafe if Emily was telling the truth about her identity at the mental ward. Sarah tells Patty that they are going to kill Michael and Phyllis tomorrow. Later, Sarah and Patty plot the perfect murders and perfect alibis. Sarah gives Patty a gun and makes sure she knows to use it. Meanwhile, Rafe convinces Heather to run a DNA test on the cup that Emily gave her. Nick and Victor continue to try protect one another but Victor refuses to budge and reminds Nick that he still has a baby he needs to get to know and family to go home to. Meanwhile, Owen tells the group at the Abbott’s that he is giving them all a chance to clear themselves by taking lie detector tests, otherwise he will charge them all with conspiracy to commit murder. Later, Michael advises the group to start cooperating with the authorities. Victoria apologizes to Billy for the way she treated him after he alibied her for Adam’s murder but when he tries to kiss her she stops him and tells him that she is going to play hard to get, which only intrigues him more. Meanwhile, Owen learns that they found Adam’s cell phone from the basement in the G.C.A.C. Patty and Sarah go over the last minute details of their plan to eliminate Michael and Phyllis just as Michael arrives at the apartment to get something for Fen. Michael asks Sarah if there is anyway they can salvage their marriage and Sarah, cryptically tells him that after tonight it won’t matter. Meanwhile, Jack tells Patty that he is going to see Phyllis and Patty blurts out that Jack can’t, knowing that he will ruin Sarah’s plan. At the zoo, Lauren has a dream that she is home with Michael but just as the dream is playing out perfectly, Fen comes running into her arms but doesn’t recognize her. Lauren wakes up and quietly sobs as Ryder watches her from a distance. Sarah makes a plan to meet Michael later, knowing that he won’t be there to meet her. Meanwhile, Lauren pushes Ryder to be a man and stand up to Sarah and Daisy before it is too late. Later, Sarah tells Daisy about her plan to kill Michael and Phyllis and then Sarah tells Daisy that Daisy will be the one to kill Phyllis. Ryder comes upon them just as Sarah manages to manipulate Daisy into agreeing to kill Phyllis for her and Ryder is horrid as he listens to their plan, wondering who they are talking about. Phyllis tells Nick about her and Sharon’s plan to sue the D.A.’s office and Nick wonders if it will only make Owen angrier but Phyllis refuses to sit back and let Nick go to prison. Michael takes pleasure in serving Owen his lawsuit papers in front of Nick and Phyllis. Meanwhile, as Jack is trying to talk to Patty about their separation, Patty starts to hallucinate that Emily is in the room with them telling Patty that she is falling apart. Owen offers Nick a deal but Nick remains adamant that he did nothing wrong and Michael demands that Owen release him, Owen, however, refuses. Later, Owen tells Nick that unless he cooperates he will charge Phyllis with obstruction of justice and his children will have two parents behind bars. Lauren decides to go to extremes to get out of the cage and asks Jana to pretend to pass out in order to get Ryder to come into the cage so that they can over power him and escape. Meanwhile, as Sarah is telling Daisy her plan, Patty calls and tells her that they have a problem. Patty tells Sarah about Jack and Sarah tells her that she needs to pull it together no matter what. Later, Ryder confronts Daisy after hearing that they are going to kill Phyllis and Michael and tells her they can’t trust Sarah but Daisy refuses to listen. When Ryder isn’t paying attention, Daisy steals his keys to the cage and walks away. After hearing everything that is going on with “Lauren,” Phyllis offers to talk to her for Michael. Meanwhile, Patty tries to play the part of Emily very closely in order to convince Jack to stay home while she heads off to the police station. At the amusement park, Ryder confesses to Lauren and Jana that Daisy and Sarah are going to kill Phyllis and Michael. Patty runs into Michael at the police station and asks if she set up a meeting later to talk about Lauren. Meanwhile, Jack finds Patty’s diary and grows even more concerned when he sees that all that is written in is gibberish. Later, as Lauren panics for husband and friend, Sarah arrives at Phyllis’s.

Lauren pleads with Ryder to call the police and stop Sarah and Daisy’s plan to kill Michael and Lauren. Meanwhile, Sarah startles Phyllis who asks her to come in to talk as Daisy skulks in the shadows, waiting. Amber and Daniel fight over the fact that Amber has decided to fly to California to look for Little D and Amber storms out. At the coffeehouse, Amber explains to Kevin and Michael about her fight with Daniel and Michael sympathizes with Amber’s ordeal. Later, Sarah is caught when Daniel calls Phyllis and offers to bring her dinner in order to get talk to her about Amber. Patty is caught off guard when Chance presents her with a broken cell phone and tells her that they found Adam’s fingerprints all over it. He asks her if she can shed some light on how he got the phone. Patty begins to panic when Chance tells her that they know Adam had to have had an accomplice and begins to get defensive leading Chance to believe that she is trying to hide something. Later, Patty manages to settle herself and tells Chance to ask whatever questions he may have but Patty starts to notice that it is getting late. Kevin advises Amber to call Daniel and smooth things over with him before she leaves town. As Amber is leaving Daniel a message, Kevin notices a kid stealing a tip off a table and stops him and Amber realizes the kid is Little D. Meanwhile, Sarah decides to change her plans and sends Daisy to intercept Daniel and tells Daisy that she will handle Phyllis herself.

‘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.

Courtesy/CBS

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
