B&B’s Naomi Matsuda Shares Reaction on Learning Li Was Hiding Presumed-Dead Finn

In a plot twist that many fans felt was coming, but didn’t know just how they were going to pull it off, The Bold and the Beautiful, over the last run of episodes revealed that Finn didn’t actually die the night he was shot by his birth-mother, Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).

As it turns out, Finn (Tanner Novlan) was taken to one hospital and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) to another (she had been shot by Sheila too) by the paramedics.

As we learned in flashback scenes, it was Finn’s adoptive mother, Li, (Naomi Matsuda) who is also a doctor, who just happened to be working at the hospital the night Finn was rushed in with a faint heart beat.  Later, she smuggled Finn out of the hospital and has been secretly caring for him and helping him regain his life, although he is currently in a coma.

Actress Naomi Matsuda revealed in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, what her reaction was to the news that it was Li who is keeping the presumed-dead Finn alive, while letting the Forresters believe he is dead.

Matsuda said when she received her script, she went “Oh. Oh. Oh! Wow! That’s when I realized what a blessing this story was, and how grateful I am to be a part of it.”

The actress expressed that when Li learns that Sheila was the responsible party for shooting her son: “At this point, she is completely outraged. This is Li’s baby and she cannot understand how a mother could do this to her child.  It is unspeakable.  It is unthinkable.”

So, what have you thought of the plot twist? Did you suspect Li had Finn?  How long do you think it will be before Finn somehow gets back to Steffy and what lengths will Li take to keep Finn away from her, and the Forresters? Comment below.  But first, watch this scene where Li talks to her comatose son.

While the plot twist is NUTS, Naomi Matsudi has been doing Emmy caliber work with this material! I was over the moon with her scene quite a few weeks ago when she told Sheila that NO!, she could not see her dead son, and then even more so in the reveal scene that Finn is still alive! (I felt he would either still be alive or we would get another identical twin story, but it was clear with no announcement of his leaving the show that Tanner Novlan wasn’t gone from the show, just like Wes Ramsey wasn’t gone yet… Read more »

I read maybe about 2 mo. Ago, that he was coming back, just waiting to c if it was true. It was/is… I hope li doesn’t leave but sounds like she is.. But in a situation like 5he car going off the bridge,it is not on fire in front of car.. But getting out is a under water is a thing.. It is a soap

It’s a ridiculous plot twist. It is difficult to care about Li. Who is she? Finn too is a bit of a cipher. It is a way to minimize character bad behavior and keep a difficult story going.

It’s a soap!!! This twist is allowed. Love how Li is keeping Finn alive and everybody else at bay. She shows how more subtle acting can be powerful.

Days Of Our Lives

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
