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

Courtesy/CBS

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”.

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.

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.

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

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.
