THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn Knows His Toes; Hope Lays Into Thomas

Courtesy/CBS

Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured two key story points. First, Finn (Tanner Novlan) is finally using his doctor brain/skills …  and putting all the pieces together to come to the conclusion that his bio-mom, the evil Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown), faked her own death, and her cut-off toe (the one that was supposedly severed when Sheila was attacked by a bear) that was presented as evidence, may not be as it appears.

Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who is in Finn’s office asks her husband, “You really think Sheila Carter cut off her own toe?” Finn replies, “You always told me she was capable of anything. She knew that we would never stop looking for her. Faking her own death was the only way out.”

Meanwhile, while hiding out at Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), Sheila is painting all nine of her toenails, and goes on to herself about how sacrificing her toe for her freedom is a little price to pay.  Later, Sheila tells Deacon about her sacrifice and the agony she went through to stay out of prison and that she will never turn herself in. Deacon tells her it’s time to do just that, or he will turn her in! Sheila is looking mighty pissed off to hear this from Deacon.

Back at Finn’s office, Finn and then Steffy examine Sheila’s toe under the microscope, where he points out that it’s too clean, there are no marks from a bear attack.  Sheila had to have done this to herself. Steffy is freaked knowing Sheila is alive, but Finn promises to never let Sheila hurt them again, professing, “I will find Sheila Carter and she will go to prison for the rest of her life!”

In the showdown we’ve been waiting for, Hope (Annika Noelle) throws down on Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) in the offices of Forrester Creations.  Hope asks Thomas how he can even have the nerve to show his face around the company, adding  “You really are shameless, aren’t you?” She goes to say that she believed in him.  Thomas tries to get a word in edge-wise to attempt to somehow explain his machinations, but Hope shuts him down before he can speak. Hope calls him out for sabotaging Brooke and Ridge’s marriage and using Douglas, his son to do it. Thomas says he can handle everything else falling apart around him, but not his connection to Hope and his son.

Hope is devastated by Thomas’ devious plot to call CPS posing as her mother.  She points out that the call never should have been made and he should never have asked their son to lie. “Now he doesn’t even want to see you anymore,” she exclaims.  Thomas doesn’t believe it, but Hope says it’s true and it’s all his doing.  Just then, Thomas starts blaming Donna. That was the final straw, and Hope finally loses it and screams, “Stop, Thomas! This is on you! You were the one who put him in the middle of this! I can’t believe I ever trusted you again.” She really goes for Thomas’ jugular when Hope says Liam and her mother were right about him all along.  Thomas asks Hope not to give up on him.  Shocked, he even had the nerve to ask her that, an emotional Hope says, “I let my guard down, I did. And then you tried to kiss me. You crossed a line.”  Thomas says he is a one-woman man and that is for Hope. She defiantly responds, “I love Liam. Never you, especially after this betrayal.”

Hope adds that she can’t bear the thought of working with Thomas again.  She ends her tirade by saying to Thomas’ face: “All I see is a sad, pathetic man who kept me from Beth, who didn’t care about his son’s safety so he called CPS on himself.”  Next, Hope leaves the office to which under his breath, Thomas responds, “You didn’t give me a chance to explain.”

As the episode came to its conclusion, we go back to Sheila outside of Deacon’s, now donning a blonde wig and in full disguise, and she says … “There always a way out.”  We fade to black … but not before a signature scary look from Kimberlin Brown as Sheila!

So, what did you think about Finn deducing the problem with the police evidence of Sheila’s toe? What did you think of the performance of Annika Noelle as Hope gave Thomas a piece of her mind and then some? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

I am so over Sheila. Thank goodness Finn’s coming to the rescue. But I’m sure it won’t be pretty. I’m worried about Hayes. Annika always plays Hope as so sweet and mild. It was great to see her finally break out of the Thomas fog she had been in. But Thomas never hears anyone. I don’t see a bright future for him. Not an easy role for Matthew to play. And he’s also done it well.

rose,
You are right. Sometimes I wish I could just shake Hope, so naive and trusting. Wait until she finds out her father has been shacking up with Sheila, to put it bluntly. I have also been worried about Sheila kidnapping Hayes and why haven’t Steffy and Finn even given a thought to their kids protection, especially Hayes against this crazy woman?

Sharon…I’ve watched forensic shows based on real life cases like “Bones.” It’s amazing what experts can make of bodies they are left with to find answers to their deaths. And Finn was a surgeon. And it is a soap. Sorry. Not a happy topic. :)))

Sheila,
No one probably. The police I’m sure told everyone in the beginning it was from her right foot, no big secret here.

I’m sure all this excitement over catching Sheila is for naught. That dumb cop will never catch her, she’s outsmarted smarter than him. I thought she’d head right for the beech house and kidnap the baby, she’s not through with her terror yet. I just hope this will be the end of her, enough is enough!

Steffy and Finn have hardly been home since Sheila showed up. They are just leaving her the space she needs to grab that baby. They should have taken the kids and kept them at Eric’s house until that witch is captured.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.
