Long-running Cast Members Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook Close B&B's 30th Anniversary Episode With Special Moment!

It’s been an incredible few weeks of honors and parties, and episodes for CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful leading up to its 30th anniversary.

The show that premiered on March 23rd, 1987, shared a very poignant and special moment for its longtime viewers on Thursday’s anniversary episode. Long-running and enduring cast members, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric) have been with the series since its humble beginnings, where at one time the show was last-rated among all the soaps. Today, B&B remains in the second spot in the U.S., and is number one in many countries around the globe.

To honor Katherine and John and their characters Brooke and Eric, at the end of the 30th anniversary episode, the two share a nostalgic moment while in Australia sipping champagne on the beach. It’s McCook, always the stalwart of the series as Eric, who narrates the words of Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and his writing team about: the essence of The Bold and the Beautiful, the family legacies of the show and how Brook and Eric have survived it all through the good and the bad times and remained extremely close. The moment also includes a montage of Brooke and Eric through the years ending with them admitting their lives have been “bold” and “beautiful”.

Watch the scene after the jump!  Then let us know, if you were touched and happy that the series acknowledged Katherine and John as Brooke and Eric to close out the 30th anniversary episode of the series.  Comment below!

I will forever believe B&B missed a great opportunity when Stephanie Forrester died and Susan Flannery retired. Eric and Brooke should have found their way back to each other. The pairing would have given these two originals proper placement as the solid lead couple. And it would make perfect sense as Stephanie did in the end consider Brooke an heir of sorts. John McCook and Katherine Kelly Lang have such an ease and chemistry between them. It reminds me of AW’s Rachel and Mac. Maybe it still can happen. The Quinn-Eric coupling was surprising and fun but we did not get to enjoy it much. Rushed wedding, sudden medical crisis, flirtation with Ridge. It became a plot device rather than a genuine story.

Watching more Ridge-Brooke waffling no longer holds allure. Neither does the roundelay of man-sharing among thre Logan sisters. (It is a slow boat enough eith Steffy, Wyatt, Liam, Ivy, Hope… whoever!) We are 50+ now people! And the recasting of Ridge put a nail in that Ridge-Brooke love story despite history.

i like the nod to rachel and mac!

Beautiful moment. Katherine and John were great and they truly deserved that moment. I’d like Brad to take this where both characters slowly discover they can be together and run Forrester which is what Stephanie wanted from brooke in the end. Ridge is a creep.

Such a nice touch to celebrate the 30th anniversary…So nice that John and Katherine are still with the show and it’s fitting to have them be the one’s on the beach to look back and remember/reflect on all the years.

I LOVED that moment!

It was a beautiful moment. I freely admit that the tears started to flow….

Beautifully written it is obvious how much these two respect and love each other on and off camera! So Brad how about getting these two back together on camera as it should be!!

It had all the S’s– sweet, soapy, sentimental and sincere— oh yeah SORASing– because the characters said they have known each other for 30 years, but their son is 36–conceiving a child without having met yet– that is something— LOL– of course Rick was born in 1990 and should only be 27 but was SORASed in 99 to 18—- which is why I hate it, it really pollutes the timeline and makes these moments of celebrations off– either do soap time or real time, not both at the same time, other than that– I loved the scene and agree with others that Brooke and Eric should be the main couple for the show, but knowing Brad Bell–Katie will be next because Brad cannot have one Logan sister not sleep with the other sister ex. I mean Donna had her shot, it is only right Katie get her chance with Eric too she said sarcastically.

Darling you have been watching soaps forever and you know they screw with ages constantly it s the fantasy of a soap. Drives me crazy too and forgetting history etc but you just have to grin and go ok it Is a soap opera. I will say one thing time to let the character of Brooke grow up enough it’s the constant triangles she and Eric should be running Forrester because I will never feel TK is Ridge no reflection on the actor just Ronn Moss was Ridge! I think if Bill Bell had been alive their would have been no recast

TK is not ridge. Love TK BUT RM is ridge with kkl.

KKL deserved an Emmy a long time ago!

I so totally agree April…KKL is long overdue for an emmy…To me she is as good as Heather Tom who I think is fantastic…Heather and Katherine both shine and are top notch actresses.

For me B&B is based upon the soap classic set-up of Romeo and Juliet and Brooke is Juliet. Nice to see Brooke and Eric have a quiet moment together. And I love the new/old title sequence.

To me Bold and Beautiful is how Y&R use to feel and I am so glad I can hear the beautiful background music from Jack Allocco and David Kurtz and wish they were back at Y&R.

Allocco’s music at Y & R was part of what made a scene great. And when they sparingly used Nadia’s Theme – forget it I was in tears. 1973 to 1984ish were my favorite years for stories but Allocco was always a treat

April, THANKS for understanding about the background music and YES, 1973-1984 with the Brooks and the Foster’s where fantastic and I will never forget the wonderful stories during that era…

It was a really nice episode.

And I agree that KKL should have an Emmy.

General Hospital’s William Lipton to Star in Music Drama Series ‘The Runarounds’ From ‘Outer Banks’ Creators

This sounds like a perfect starring vehicle for the multi-talented William Lipton (Cameron Webber), who recently made a brief return to General Hospital for his best friend, Spencer Cassadine’s (the exited Nicholas Chavez) gravesite memorial service.

Now comes word that Lipton is set to star in a new series in the works entitled The Runarounds. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because The Runarounds is the name of the band seen in season three of Netflix’s popular series, Outer Banks. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Amazon has given the green light to an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for The Runarounds which premise features the story of a post-high school band as they try to make it big.

The fictional drama is inspired by the real life band of the same name and will star its group’s members: William Lipton, Axel Ellis, Jeremy Yun, Zendé Murdock and Jesse Golliher.

The Runarounds will be set and film in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Outer Banks was also shot. Skydance Television is the studio behind the series. Outer Banks creators Josh Pate, Joshua Pate, and Shannon Burke will bring this project to life.

Lipton took to his Instagram on Monday, once the news of the series was revealed, expressing, “Where are we going, fellas? To the top, Johnny!” Immediately GH co-stars past and present shared their congratulations to William including: Sydney Mikayla (ex-Trina Robinson) and Enzo De Angelis, who plays Lipton’s brother, Aiden on GH.

 

In a statement, Vernon Sanders, head of television at Amazon MGM Studios, expressed: “When we first met with Jonas and Skydance about The Runarounds, it was immediately clear that they brought us a special show featuring an incredibly talented cast and real-life band. We are very much looking forward to sharing the exhilarating journey of The Runarounds with our global Prime Video customers.”

The Runarounds were actually formed as a band back in 2021, when Jonas Pate issued a casting call looking for a group to appear on Outer Banks. The group first performed together when they played for Pate ahead of appearing in season three after being selected from a more than 5,000 musicians who responded to the call.

No word yet on when The Runarounds will be released.

So, excited for this opportunity for William Lipton to star in this music drama? Hope he returns to GH down the line? Comment below.

DAYS Blake Berris to Chat Live on the Michael Fairman Channel as Everett & Bobby’s Story Heats Up

The tale of Everett Lynch and Bobby Stein is starting to reveal itself on Peacock’s Days of our Lives, which puts returning cast member, Blake Berris front and center in story.

On Monday’s, February 26th episode of DAYS, the results of Everett’s CAT scan indicate he suffered a traumatic brain injury which jives with his story that he was in a car accident and spent in a year in a coma, or does it?

Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and Everett are reeling that Everett as Bobby Stein was married to Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu) and treated her badly. While Everett claims he doesn’t remember anything about his time as Bobby, despite his fingerprints matching those of Robert Stein’s, Marlena (Deidre Hall) ponders if he could be suffering from PTSD, which might explain his memory loss.

Everett wonders if he has a brain tumor, but Marlena points out that they would have found it on the CAT scan. While there is no obvious reason for his memory loss, Kayla wonders if he is faking his amnesia? Marlena tells Everett that she is a psychiatrist and they should set up sessions immediately. Will it be revealed that Everett and Bobby are split personalities living inside one man?

Blake Berris is set to chat about the latest storyline developments and more, when he visits the Michael Fairman Channel on Wednesday, February 28th beginning at 3 pm ET/Noon PT.  Make sure to join Michael and Blake in the live chat for your turn to share your questions and thoughts on the story.

Recently, Blake returned to the show in his newly-minted role of Everett Lynch at the end of October of last year.

Blake will talk about portraying Everett/Bobby, plus working his co-stars, and being a dad to his three boys, and more.  You can catch the livestream below.

Kimberlin Brown ‘Killed-Off’ as Sheila Carter on The Bold and the Beautiful in Shocking Twist

The Monday, February 26th episode of CBS daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful brought with it the apparent end to one of the all-time villains of soap opera.

In story, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was being stalked by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) in the dark. Eventually, Steffy stabs Sheila in the heart with a knife and she apparently dies.

Speaking with TV Insider, Brown admitted that it is extremely hard to leave a now iconic role she made soap-famous since 1990 on first The Young and the Restless and then The Bold and the Beautiful.

Kimberlin expressed: “It’s a tough place for me to be in right now; I’m not going to lie about this. I guess if anyone were going to take Sheila down, I’m happy it’s Steffy. I just wish that no one was taking Sheila down.”  Three time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood expressed: “It’s bittersweet because I absolutely love working with Kimberlin; she is just the consummate professional.”

However, the stabbing is vindication for Steffy as Wood related, “This is her moment. How long has it taken Steffy to take her down and it’s finally happening, so it’s going to be a big shock.”

As to her B&B death scene and to her future plans, Brown revealed, “Laying there on that floor when the paramedics pronounce the time of death, my eyes were closed and you’re holding your breath so it doesn’t look like you’re breathing. It was just like, ‘Wow, OK, I guess we’ll have to see what might come next for me.’”

If this holds up and Sheila is “dead” dead, it will open up the story and trouble in the marriage of Finn (Tanner Novlan) and Steffy, because ultimately, Steffy killed her husband’s biological mother.

This is leading many to believe this move will bring Steffy back together with Liam (Scott Clifton) while Finn and Hope (Annika Noelle) draw closer. Is that part of the reason for Sheila’s death? Stay tuned.
