B&B's John McCook Delivers Power Performance Of The Week!

Courtesy/CBS

The Bold and the Beautiful had been can’t-miss-soap of late!

After bringing back Sheila Carter played to the hilt by Kimberlin Brown, the series finally brought out the secret that Quinn (Rena Sofer) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) have been making out and having goo-goo eyes for each other right behind poor Eric Forrester’s (John McCook) back.  After all, Quinn is married to the guy, and Ridge is his son.

Last week on B&B, Sheila made her move and Quinn and Ridge finally confessed all to Eric in must-see scenes.   But it was long-running cast member and soap vet, John McCook who made this all so emotionally riveting, because he played the betrayal and hurt by his wife and his son to the hilt.

Perhaps McCook’s finest moment was when he laid into Ridge, calling him “Ridge Marone” (since he is not Ridge’s bi0-dad) and how he steals all the women he has ever loved. Eric warns Quinn that she doesn’t know Ridge Marone the way he does. When he asks if the two of them slept together, they say it never happened. Nevertheless, Eric tells Quinn she betrayed him, and broke their vows.

Ridge owns up to that he is an egotistical bastard.  He finally tells Eric that he went to San Francisco, when this all started, to get Quinn to betray him, to prove that she was the wrong woman for him, but things went awry, because he realized she was a different woman then he thought.

After Ridge has to leave, because of RJ’s (Anthony Turpel) car accident, a deeply wounded Eric asks Quinn, what she got from Ridge that she couldn’t get from him? Eric asks Quinn if one kiss was worth their marriage.  Quinn can’t quite explain herself, her actions, or anything, other than falling back on that she loves Eric, and it all meant nothing. Eric tells Quinn to leave, and then a gut-punched Eric looks a the portrait of Quinn, while Sheila, who is still in the house, approaches him and places her hand on his shoulder, and then we see her embrace him from behind with that “Sheila smirk” we know and love.

Fast forward: Eric has gone MIA when Quinn and Ridge come back to the Forrester mansion to make things right with him … he is not there.  As we go into Monday, did Sheila take Eric away?

John McCook is On-Air On-Soaps choice for this past week’s power performance of the week, because as audience members he made us feel Eric’s pain and after all, nobody likes to see the good guy be put thought the ringer!

Watch a few clips of the showdown scenes between Eric, Quinn, and Ridge after the jump. Then let us know if you liked McCook’s performance as much as we did in the comment section below.

This show is “can’t miss.” I do not know the history, but the return of Sheila is brilliant. I also like the topical storylines like texting while driving. Thomas and Sally is the show’s super couple. I can’t wait to see Caroline’s return and hope it is permanent. Rena Sofer also turned in a powerhouse performance this past week.

Fantastic acting by both John & Rena. This really takes this soap opera up a notch with fine acting and the addition of Kimberlin Brown. She is amazing!! Good Job!! B&B.

I only wish the story had built with a slow burn. B&B seems to work like a telenovela anymore. I do not feel for Eric or Quinn because they have been together not even a year. Ridge has been revised to be so dopey, not dangerous or sexy. Sheila just is suddenly THERE! Her entrance was a surprise but the hurried Deacon closure and the closeness Sheila regained to the family seemed forced and unreal… even in daytime. But this does no take away from Mr. McCook who is never on screen enough for me!

It’s definitely B&B’s turn to be the show I have to watch before I go to bed at night. I knew bringing back sheila was going to bring lots of explosives and she’s only been back a few weeks. Keep the heat up, B&B…I want a nice, hot summer with you!!!

By the way, I love the “retro” feel to the Sheila episodes through the background music. Tres soapy!

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.

Melissa Reeves Talks On DAYS Time-Jump; Paul Telfer & Eric Martsolf Chat Between Their Scenes On ‘Inside Salem’ Podcast

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, the special guest is enduring DAYS star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who found herself as the catalyst for the year time-jump and flash-forward that fans are now watching play out on the daytime drama series.

Last week, Jennifer was pushed off a balcony following her wedding to Jack by Princess Gina.  And on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Jennifer woke up out of a coma to learn from Jack that she has been asleep for a year.

Now with a year having passed in Salem, Jennifer learns bits of information of what has happened to her loved ones.  Meanwhile, Eve is in lock-up for the crime against Jennifer, and it appears Jennifer cannot put the pieces together of who pushed her on that fateful night to clear Eve.

In addition during the podcast, Melissa chats with host Michael Fairman on the passing of John Clarke (Ex-Mickey), and being one of the core characters tied to the legacy of the Hortons – the first family of Salem.

As to the initial reaction to the time-jump, Melissa reveals that the entire cast was very excited, but all the pressure of the attention to detail was discussed with make-up, hair, and in the writing and production.

Later, Paul Telfer and Eric Martsolf have a little hang out discussion in between scenes, that is often hilarious when you can imagine getting Xander and Brady, and their real-life portrayers, Paul and Eric, in the same room in front of a microphone.
