"It's common for actors to go into Brad's [Bell, executive producer/head writer] office and talk about where their characters are going, and during one of those meetings, Brad asked if I ever wanted to write an episode," Saint-Victor reveals to Soap Opera Digest.
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
"The episode deals with the aftermath of what has been seen: Maya follows up with Carter about their last conversation regarding Rick," Saint-Victor says. "That will be interesting [laughs]! We also see Caroline and Ridge contemplate if they’re ready to move forward together and Maya's baby sister, Nicole [Reign Edwards], makes her introduction. It was fun, but it was a little scary, too!"
On a day when "#OscarsSoWhite" is trending on Twitter due to the lack of diversity in the Academy Award nominations, it must be noted what a rare opportunity it is for an African American writer to be given a chance to write for a daytime soap opera. Kudos to Bradley P. Bell and B&B.
Saint-Victor has written another episode which airs in February.
