Billy tries to get Cane to cooperate by playing on his loyalty to Jill but Cane refuses to budge. Cane offers Billy some help on where to find the right information.

Meanwhile, Lauren apologizes to Amber and tells her that she has her job back. On their way out, Amber assures Chloe that there is no way Jana would cheat on Kevin. Later, as Kevin, Amber and Chloe are discussing Jana, Chance arrives and tells them that Riggs’ death was ruled a suicide and there may be someone on the police force involved in his death. Tucker slowly starts to realize that there is more to Kay than he initially believed. Meanwhile, Billy and Jill stumble upon a painting in their research and start to wonder if they found what they have been looking for. As they are talking, Jill realizes the connection between the painting, Tucker and Thomas and just what Tucker was trying to hide. Lauren takes the medication that her doctor prescribed for her headaches and just before she washes them down, Daisy drugs Lauren’s water. Meanwhile, Jana finishes a goodbye letter to Kevin that Daisy and Ryder forced her to write. Kevin receives the letter and it breaks his heart but refuses to believe that Jana has left him.

Sharon continues to read Skye’s diary and finds out that Adam knew about Skye being molested by Dr. Taylor a long time ago. Angered, Sharon calls Adam, sounding concerned for his whereabouts, but really ready to take him on and find out the truth when and if Adam returns. Sharon lies down for a nap to gain her strength and composure. Ashley calls to check the results of the forensics test on the purple cloth and finds out that the results will not be ready until the morning. She also lies down to rest. Sharon, now dreaming wakes up in her dream and hears a baby crying in the distance. Sharon searches the hall for the baby then walks into another G.C.A.C. suite where she finds Skye playing cards on the bed. Sharon figures out who the girl is then Skye invites her to play cards for big stakes, the baby. Ashley, now dreaming wakes up in the living room when she hears a loud crack of thunder and lightning. Ashley grabs for Faith and discovers that it is just an empty blanket. She searches and is blocked by Adam at the stairs. A loud bang of thunder occurs and Ashley gets a small glimpse of Adam dressed up as Sabrina. Ashley becomes confused and Adam eerily tries to calm her telling her that he is her only friend. Sharon tries to reason with Skye who now turns into Phyllis. Phyllis lets Sharon know that she is the big winner in the end because she has Nick, and Sharon doesn’t. Ashley still searches for Faith and realizes that she cannot go up the stairs and gets a bad feeling that something happened at the stairs. Ashley’s dream continues and she ends up in the G.C.A.C. where she runs into Victor and asks him if he has seen Faith. Victor is puzzled when Ashley realizes she is holding on to the baby. Victor takes the baby from Ashley and he tells her that Faith cannot be with an unstable mother. Ashley goes to swipe the baby back from Victor and it is only a yellow blanket. (Like Robert) Ashley is devastated and runs into Jack, who she pleads to not have her locked up again. Sharon jolts and realizes that she is pregnant again, feeling the baby kick. Sharon’s guilt over lying to Jack about the paternity of the baby is also expressed in this scene resulting in Jack telling Sharon that she is getting everything she deserves. Ashley still cannot get up the stairs and is confused why. Jack sits next to her and tries to comfort her and get her to realize that the baby never made it. Jack tries to deal delicately with Ashley because he thinks she has lost it all over again. Sharon once again finds herself in the outside with Nick. The two of them are ecstatic that Sharon is pregnant again. Nick promises that this is how Cassie wanted things to end up and that once the baby comes things will be back to normal between Sharon and Nick. Adam appears and tries to convince Sharon that the baby is actually hers and his not hers and Nick’s. Sharon begins to get labor pains and Adam calls the doctor. Sharon is afraid of being trapped with Adam when she should be with Nick. Ashley wakes up from her dream to a phone call with the results from the forensic test. She finds out that they couldn’t get any DNA from the cloth but there was indeed blood on the cloth. Sharon wakes up with happy thoughts of Faith still being alive and her being with Nick. Sharon is confused and hopeful about her dream when suddenly Adam arrives at her door returning from his trip.

Victor arrives at the tack house and Phyllis and Nick tell him that Adam knew that Dr. Taylor molested Skye and Adam knew it when he recommended Taylor to Ashley as her OBGYN. Phyllis and Nick tell Victor that only Sharon knows they have the diary. Victor becomes enraged when Nick tells him that it must have been revenge that motivated Adam since the beginning. Neil arrives at the ranch and Ashley tells him that the forensics test proved there was blood on the purple cloth. Ashley finally has the beginning of the proof she needs against Adam. Neil advises Ashley that she should investigate and get some more solid evidence before they confront Adam. Neil suggests that they begin with talking to Heather. Adam returns and Sharon is distant yet firm when talking to him. Adam reveals that he needed to get away for a little bit and decided to go to his mom’s grave in Kansas for some guidance. Sharon reveals that she has read Skye’s diary and Adam is gut punched. Sharon yells at Adam who claims it is only a copy and tries to dodge any blame. Adam pleads that he thought if he told Sharon about Skye, that Sharon would leave him. Sharon is very emotional but realizes she cannot believe Adam anymore. She tells Adam they are over and leaves.

Billy believes Kay won’t budge but Jill demands that they cannot blindside Kay with this article. Chloe arrives and warns Billy that he is making a mistake printing this article because Kay wants to make amends with Tucker not make things worse. Tucker, surprisingly, shows up at the Chancellor estate and tells Kay that he would like to give Kay a bigger voice in Chancellor Industries. Jill arrives at the mansion and Kay is furious that Jill is trying to get Kay against Tucker. Kay explodes when she realizes that Jill took the files Kay had at the mansion about Tucker. Kay tells Jill that if she really wants to show she cares for Kay she won’t use this information and take Tucker away from her. Jill tells Kay she will only throw the story away is if Tucker will make Kay an equal at Chancellor. Kay promises Jill that Tucker will come through and Jill calls Billy to cancel the story. Once gone, Jill sees Tucker and Kay embrace and she becomes crushed, calling Billy back to continue with the Tucker article. Chance and Chloe wait to meet with Sid on the Riggs case. Chance is sure that if Sid won’t look into the situation then he must be someone who Chance cannot trust. Sid meets with Chance and Chance expresses that he thinks Riggs death was not a suicide. Sid tells Chance to keep his hands clean but that he will begin to look into the situation. Chance also tells Sid about the death threat that he received. After the meeting, Chance and Chloe are almost hit by a car outside of the station. Heather tells Neil and Ashley that the evidence of the purple cloth is not nearly enough to actually investigate Adam since Ashley really was experiencing some psychiatric problems. Skye visits Adam in a daydream and Skye tells Adam he was stupid giving the diary to Dr. Taylor; Adam reveals that he is determined to not lose Sharon because this time it is different and he really does care for her. Sharon arrives at the Ranch and Phyllis, Nick, and Victor try to console Sharon who tells them she realizes she should not have trusted Adam in the first place.

Later, Patty tries to study the ins and outs of psychiatry in order to better impersonate Emily but it all starts to become too much for her. Meanwhile, Emily does everything she can to try and convince Paul of who she truly is, going as far as to cut herself and insists to him to test her DNA. However, Paul, believing that Patty has truly lost it, merely throws the tissue away. Daisy makes a call about getting more liquid X just as Michael arrives at Fenmore’s to see Lauren after his search for Jana. Lauren pounces on him and Michael is caught off guard by her overtly sexually behavior toward him. Lauren shows Michael the pills the doctor prescribed for her headaches and he immediately calls to find out what they are. Michael learns from the doctor that the pills shouldn’t be altering Lauren’s mood but before he can figure out what is going on he is called away to deal with Cane’s case.

‘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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
