B&B's Susan Flannery And Katherine Kelly Lang Turn In Heartbreaking Performances!

We hope you armed yourselves with a box of kleenex going into yesterday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful! If you didn’t see see it, grab a box and head over to CBS.com and watch Friday’s episode where Stephanie tells Brooke that her cancer has returned, under the guise of giving her an invitation to the party she is throwing to celebrate her life.

With clips from the history of Brooke and Stephanie’s often flammable relationship to illustrate how far these two women have come from enemies to best friends, and the incredible performances by Susan Flannery (Stephanie) and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), it was a very special show for long-time fans of B&B.

If there was ever a true soap super couple, this is it! And Susan Flannery showed us once again the art of being understated and yet powerful, as she depicted a woman trying to die with dignity and hold it together, while asking her loved ones to be strong around her as she heads towards the end of her life.  And as for Katherine Kelly Lang, she showed us once again that consistently not scoring a nod for Daytime Emmy contention is a crime!

The love and growth between these two characters over 25 years together has been one of the key factors to tuning in to B&B, and this episode was touching on many levels, but none more so than Brooke struggling to come to terms with how she will deal with losing her best friend.

What did you think of Susan and Katherine’s performances on yesterday’s special episode of B&B?  Share your thoughts!

Oh yeah my kleenex box got a work-out that episode. Both actresses played it dead on, and the script was balance between the sadness of the situation, with a nice dash of humour mixed in. It honoured the history of both characters and their relationship and the clips were well placed. Kudos to all.

The performances were spot on it is too bad for the last two years the show has not been recognizeable. If Katherine Kelly Lang would submit reels with actors that deliver back she probably would have had a nod before. It is really sad for me because this indeed is the end of the soap for me as a viewer when you lose a power house like Susan Flannery.

When this show is not focused on the Forrester incest-go-round, it is amazing what they can pull off. It is nice that there will be no fiery explosion and presumed death with Prince Omar riding to the rescue. This is a true to life, realistic depiction of an elderly person dying. It would be nice if our beloved vets could last as long as Alice Horton or Kay Chancellor. But the reality is that daytime soaps are all but extinct so it is time to let these people retire with dignity. It is also wonderful that this on screen death… Read more »

Y is it we are not seeing any flashback with taylor and stephanie. Their friendship was more special than brook and stephanie. How selfish of bell.

Supposedly she Taylor is told this week but this is the way Bell has been treating the character of Taylor for a long time why he brought her back from the dead I do not know. Ever since she got back she has been used and abused and Brooke always gets want she wants Katie got her home that Ridge bought her that is why after this story plays out back off the DVR I do not care to see the teenyboopers or Brooke land ing another man. Yawn

Too Bad they didn’t go with the Brooke and Stephanie hooking up. So instead she has slept with every male member of her Family!

Just watched the episode and not being an emotional person, this really got to me. Stephanie SF and Brook KKL were pure magic. This will leave a huge void in B&B however I respect SF and her decision to leave on her own terms. I wish her the best and perhaps KKL can get the emmy she long ago earned. Great Great Writing!!!!!!! Brad Bell being the original writer and current writer makes a difference. Will never have to worry about B&B becoming a GH, DOOL, AMC, OLTL, GL or ATWT knock off. I appreciate the continuity. God Bless all… Read more »

As a viewer who has watched since B&B premiered, this show was so beautiful and poignant.

KKL and SF truly are the “it” couple on B&B-always have been.

I appreciate the great sendoff BBell is giving Susan Flannery. She has been the central character of this show and has delivered great performances time and again. She will be sorely missed.

Susan Flannery is in a class of her own. She is a person that makes us all sit up and listen. I will miss her, but I wish her every happiness in her life. As a fan of B&B FOR 25 years I better see Katherine Kelly Lang not only being nominated for an Emmy, but walking away with the award this year. You gave it to Heather Tom last year and she barely scratched the surface on B&B. It is Katherine Kelly Lang, Susan Flannery and Ronn Moss that have made me tune in for 25 years. I am… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
