Later, Heather and Chance pretend as though they didn’t find the bug as they call Billy and tell him that they have a story for him. Meanwhile, Ronan meets with Meeks and tells him that if they don’t get Chance off the case or demoted their entire case could blow up in their faces.

Heather doesn’t feel good about Ronan guarding her now but Chance assures her that he will be back once he deals with telling Chloe the truth.

Jack runs into Phyllis at the coffeehouse and wonders how she is coping with leaving Nick. She assures him that she is doing okay with it and focuses on Summer, Daniel on the other hand is another story. Meanwhile, Daniel meets with Abby and she tells him that she wants him to meet her producer, which Daniel has no interest in. When Kent arrives Abby dives right in, wanting to know when they start filming their first episode. Later, Phyllis is none to pleased about Daniel’s debut on the cover of Restless Style. Abby is beaten and furious when Kent tells her that there is no backer for the pilot and the “The Naked Heiress” is officially dead. Lauren is blindsided when she is served with legal papers at Fenmores. Lauren arrives at the Chancellor estate to confront Jill about suing her for half of Fenmores but Jill tells her that she has their father’s will and it should be a slam dunk case now. Later, just as Lauren and Jill are about to rip each other apart, Kay steps in. Kay tries to make Lauren and Jill see the where the other is coming from. Kay asks Jill to give Lauren some time to process what’s just happened to her. Kay and Neil wonder what is going on with Tucker when he sends Sofia Dupre to an important meeting in his place. Meanwhile, Tucker and Ashley decide to confront Victor directly about their suspicions that he is bribing a Japanese official in order to maintain his hold on Asian cosmetics market, knowing that they have no proof and it could backfire. Victor doesn’t even flinch at their accusation and warns Ashley about getting in Tucker’s way when he wants something and what could happen to her if she doesn’t play by his rules.  As their meeting gets underway and Neil is making his presentation, Sofia immediately rubs Neil the wrong way when she tells him that his points are way off the mark. Sofia tells them that Chancellor needs to update their image and Kay takes immediate offense. Sofia gives them her own report and asks them to keep an open mind but Neil has some questions. Later, Neil wonders why he hasn’t met Sofia before now and if it’s because she is here to do Tucker’s dirty work but Sofia assures him that Tucker is capable of that all on his own. Abby confronts her father but her anger gets the better of her and Victor tells her that she won’t see a dime of her trust fund until she grows up. Meanwhile, Phyllis learns about Abby and Daniel’s sex tape and goes ballistic. Daniel tries to calm her down by telling her that she will stay away from Abby but Phyllis is incensed, wanting to know what Daniel was thinking getting involved with a hot mess like Abby Newman.

Ashley meets with Jack to get his help brainstorming ideas on how to get Beauty of Nature away from Victor. Jack tells her to call Tucker because he has a proposition for him. Jack offers to get BofN for Tucker in exchange for becoming co-CEO with Ashley of Jabot and Tucker takes him up on the offer. Daniel tells Phyllis that there is more to Abby than people think. Meanwhile, Victor tells Ashley that Abby’s reality show is off the table. Jack meets with Abby and Abby tells him that although it will devastate her, she is going to sell Brad’s house in order to pay for her show. Jack, however, tells her that there may be another way. Later, Phyllis considers going back to work at Jabot. Meanwhile, Jack tells Abby that she can use her Newman stock in order to leverage the power she needs to get what she wants. Things with Jill and Lauren go from bad to worse when Lauren tells Jill that she will never accept her as her sister because her father never accepted her as his daughter. Sofia surprises Malcolm at the magazine office and he is thrilled to have his fiancé in town. Neil on the other hand isn’t happy to hear from Tucker that Sofia is going to be handling more of Tucker’s work at Chancellor from now on.

Victoria is taken aback when Victor tells her about his visit from Tucker and Ashley and inquires about her trip to Japan. Meanwhile, Jack tells Abby that she should be second only to Victor in terms of how much power she should have at Newman now and although grateful for the information, Abby tells Jack she isn’t interested in being his puppet the way Colleen was. Later, Jack antes up with Abby and tells her that he wants something from Victor and so does she and that they should form a partnership. Abby agrees as long as she gets cash immediately. At Restless Style, Daniel confronts Billy about lying to Abby about the cover and Billy wonders why it matters to Daniel and what Abby means to him. It becomes clear to Daniel that Billy is yanking his chain just as Nikki shows up wanting to know what Billy’s intentions are for Victoria. As Malcolm and Sofia are getting reacquainted Tucker calls and asks to meet with both of them now. After a roll in the hay, Sofia tries to get Malcolm up to meet Tucker but he is less than enthusiastic. Sofia promises to make sure that Malcolm won’t have any more family conflicts with Neil but Malcolm isn’t so sure she can keep that promise where Tucker is concerned. Later, Tucker asks Sofia to relocate to Genoa City in order to handle things with Jack Abbott. Meanwhile, Jack tells Abby that they need to take their time but Abby isn’t interested in patience. As Adam and Skye are in the middle getting The Newman Fund up and running, Nick stops by to find out just what kind of con they are running. Nick threatens to sick the S.E.C. on them but Adam and Skye don’t even flinch, telling Nick that they have nothing to hide with the Newman Fund. Victoria is stung when Victor tells her that he expects better from her while they are discussing the way she handled things in Japan and Victoria tells him that next time he can handle his own dirty work. Meanwhile, Billy is open and honest with Nikki about his feelings for Victoria and about the conflict it causes running Restless Style and Nikki is genuinely impressed. Later, after her fight with Victor, Victoria seeks solace from Nikki. Victoria tells her mother that she thinks it may be time to move on from Newman since her father doesn’t believe that she is competent to do her job. Victoria immediately goes on the defensive when Nikki tells her about her talk with Billy, assuming the worst. Abby proposes to Victor that she come to work at Newman and they produce “The Naked Heiress” together. When Victor says no to the idea Abby tells him he doesn’t have a choice, since she is the second largest stockholder. Victor tells her that as majority stockholder he has the say over any project and he will not allow this. Abby throws a fit and storms out of the ranch. Later, Abby comes to Daniel for a little understanding and as she is explaining to him just why “The Naked Heiress” is so important to her Daniel finally sees a whole new side to Abby. He kisses her and things heat up. Post-sex, they are talking about Abby’s horse and Abby gets an idea. Just as Malcolm and Sofia are discussing her relocation, Jack arrives to see Tucker. Jack is wary when he realizes that he will be dealing with Sofia but quickly impressed by her sass and business sense. Billy convinces Victoria to go to dinner with her family but Victoria won’t go without him and Billy agrees. Adam and Skye gloat as they realize that their investment is doubling in size and what it will do to Victor and Nick. Later, Billy and Victoria arrive at the club but Billy tells her that he is going to let her go to dinner alone but not without a kiss. Victoria joins her family and Nikki and Victor announce their engagement just as Abby rides into the club naked on her horse.

At Jimmy’s, just as Nina is getting ready for some time alone with Paul in walks Chris. Meanwhile, Heather tells Ronan that she doesn’t trust him and she is going to do everything she can to get Chance reinstated. Chance shows up at the dive bar and briefly says hello to Chris and Nina before he tries to get into it with three guards from the prison about who tipped them off about the warrant but they won’t tell him a thing. Later, Nina, Paul and Chris remember the child that was stolen from Nina and admits that she wishes she knew that he was okay. At the club, mayhem ensues as the Newmans are stunned by Abby’s naked entrance and Daniel films the entire thing nearby. Victor gets up to cover Abby up but she tells him that she is trying to sell her horse and doesn’t want to be covered as Victor tries to stop Daniel from filming. Later, as Victor is trying to straighten things out with the police and keep Abby out of the media, Abby steps in and says that she doesn’t want that but Victor takes Daniel’s camera and smashes it making it very clear that what she wants doesn’t matter. At the coffeehouse, Kevin tells Chloe that he is afraid Ryder is gone for good and that could mean he will lose Crimson Lights. Kevin tracks down Ryder’s phone at the G.C.A.C. but when he calls Jana is disappointed to learn that her phone has been disconnected. Chance and Ronan clash when Ronan tells Chance to back off his investigation. Meanwhile, Paul offers to help Nina try to find the son that was lost to her years ago. At the station, Chance tells Heather that he is going to continue to try and keep an eye on them because he doesn’t trust Ronan. He makes it clear to Heather it’s because he is her friend nothing more and that he has to tell Chloe the truth now. Abby is finally arrested when she refuses to listen to Victor and go home quietly. At the jail, Abby expects jail to be a walk in the park but Daniel sets her straight and worries for her that she is in for a rude awakening. Meanwhile, Victor and Nikki are hurt but Victoria and Nick’s lack of enthusiasm over their engagement but Victor assures them that he is in this relationship forever. Later, Abby is a deer in the headlights for her mug shot after she learns she won’t be arraigned until Monday. Daniel promises her that she will be okay and he will visit her.

Kevin and Chloe go to the club to find out more about Jana and Ryder and learn from the club’s manager that Ryder and Jana left together without paying their bill. Later, the manager shows Kevin and Chloe pictures of Jana and Ryder leaving their room with suitcases, kissing and Kevin realizes that if the police don’t find them he will lose everything. At the coffeehouse, Chloe doesn’t realize that when Chance shows up he is there to protect Heather rather than to see her. When Chance rebuffs her romantic advances once again, however, Chloe asks Chance what is going on with him. Meanwhile, as Chris, Nina and Paul are discussing Nina’s child, Chris leaves abruptly which Nina and Paul notice and wonder if there is more going on with Chris than they realized. Later, Chris calls Ronan at the coffeehouse and tells him that Nina and Paul are looking for him. Ronan tells her that she needs to stop them now. Moments later, officers arrive to arrest Chance for drug possession. Adam tells Skye that he is meeting with Vance and that since Patty confessed to Hightower’s murder to he is feeling a lot more confident. Meanwhile, Patty has a nightmare of the night of Hightower’s murder and wakes up in a cold sweat whispering to herself that she didn’t do it. Paul arrives to visit Patty and realizes that she is in distress over Hightower’s murder. Paul calls Emily to come and help Patty try to figure things out. Jack however, is not too pleased when Emily agrees to go to the hospital to help Patty. At the station, Chloe and Nina wait for word on Chance as Ronan, Heather and Chris arrive and Chris is astonished to see how grownup Heather is. As Chloe and Nina are catching Chris up, Chloe tells Nina that before the arrest Chance was acting strangely. In the interrogation room, Chance points the finger at Ronan as the one who set him up and planted the drugs in his car. As Chance tries to defend himself to Owen and Sid, Ronan exposes his affair with Heather to them. Later, Sid suspends Chance without pay for this behavior with Heather until I.A.B. can clear him. At the hospital, after talking to Patty, Emily tells Paul that it is clear that her confession is more questionable than ever and she is calling the D.A. Meanwhile, Vance assures Adam and Skye that Adam will be a free man soon but Jack tells them not to get ahead of themselves. Chance takes off from the station without a word to Nina or Chloe and Heather tells them that Ronan hung Chance out to dry. Nina turns on Ronan and attacks him and as Chris stands by watching Nina attack her own son she finally steps in, telling her to stop. Paul arrives before more can be said and Heather and Nina fill him in. Paul tells Ronan that he won’t allow him to be alone with his daughter and Nina vows not to stop until Ronan is thrown off the force.

‘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.
