THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn Meets His Mother … Sheila!

Photo: JPI

It was the moment we have been waiting for on Monday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, when did not only Finn (Tanner Novlan) meet his mother, but he introduced her to the rest of the Forrester family just after his nuptials to Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

But what Finn doesn’t know is that his mother is none other than psychopath and deeply-disturbed, Sheila Carter!

In the pick-from Friday’s episode, Finn is alone in the guest house to take a call regarding one of his patients, when out from the shadows comes Sheila introducing herself as Finn’s biological mother.  A startled Finn, at first does not know what to make of it, and Sheila is trying to explain away how she give him for adoption, and her absence all of his life, but how she just could not see him on his wedding day.

Finn is overcome, and Tanner Novlan turned in a very good performance as a son who has longed to know his real mother unaware of Sheila’s history with the Forresters.

He wants her to come with him back to the Forresters to meet Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and the family. She tells him it’s not a good idea.  But of course, we know Sheila is loving this!

Then, in one of the great, campy, soap opera cliffhangers, Finn comes back to the Forrester mansion and announces to everyone that the most incredible thing has happened. He shares, “I’ve met someone.” Next, Sheila walks in behind him.

Cue the zoom-in close-ups of reaction shots from Steffy, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Eric (John McCook)! Brooke drops her champagne glass and it smashes on the floor, as she gasps, “Sheila?” Ridge repeats, “Sheila?”\

However, Finn’s adoptive father, Jack (Ted King) scowls at the sight of Sheila and her emergence on the scene.  How do those two know each other? And of course, all this comes on the heels of Finn’s adoptive mom, Li’s (Naomi Matsuda), heartfelt sentiments that Finn couldn’t have been loved more if he’d been her own, and that he has been the light of her life. She adds, that she has thought about his birth mother, particularly on his wedding day .. and voila, the birth mother is right there … Sheila Carter.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Finn and Sheila and the final moments of today’s B&B? Comment below, but first watch some of the key moments played by Tanner Novlan and Kimberlin Brown.

The reveal of Sheila would have been much more effective had the PTB at Bold not revealed the news that Kimberlin Brown was coming back to the show. Instead, Friday’s episode turned into a complete dud.

Social media destroyed that it has nothing to do with anybody leaking anything . KB is still one of the best I watched today had not watched in months to see her with that smirk looking at Stephanie was priceless and the flashbacks were well done showed viewers a little of her history. Good luck to them I truly would like for them to get ahead of this and make it work. Missing Taylor is a problem my understanding thru a friend is she is in Italy in real life and no return but so it goes.KB go back to… Read more »

As much as I wish this bombshell wasn’t revealed before Friday’s episode, I do have to say, Sheila looks like Finn’s bio-mom. Now the question is who’s the daddy? I can’t recall how long ago it was that she was waiting tables. And then Poof! She was gone.

Going by his age we should look to Genoa City for that answer, anyway Steffy’s marriage is doomed.

Oh, that was just a few years ago when she got into it with Quinn. Certainly hasn’t been twenty plus years ago. Also, I can’t remember the last time she had a love interest.

Sheila and her magic womb.

Not that I care, but when was Shelia having all these children?

With Scott, the child she kidnapped, even if he aged in real time, he is 30 years old, born in 1991.

Then she supposedly had Mary / Erica, twins Daisy and Ryder, and now this one.

And these shows really need to address the Sheila situation on Y and R, especially with recent crossovers and cameos.

Lauren thinks she killed the Phyllis doppelgänger version of Sheila. It needs to be explained how she is roaming free, and it might actually give Tracey Bergman an actual storyline!

I think Paris needs to butt out of Stefy and Finn’s lives. We knew this would happen, but doesn’t make it easier to watch. With her as Finn’s confidant, why bother watching her aiding and abetting he and his mother’s relations lead up to a lot that he will wish he never got mixed up with Mommie Dearest.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Craig Reveals to Chloe He’s In Love With Another Man

Looks like it’s the end of the line for “Crancy”.  On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, once outside of the Brady Pub, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) overhears Craig (Kevin Spirtas) talking to someone on the phone and calling them “sweetheart”.

This confuses Chloe all the more, when Craig just had professed there is no other woman in his life than his wife, Nancy (Patrika Darbo), even though Nancy came back to Salem knowing there is trouble brewing in her marriage.

Craig admits to Chloe, who accuses him of cheating on her mother, that he is indeed cheating on her, but not with another woman, but a man.

Chloe is gut-wrenched and starts to cry and asks Craig … if he is gay? Craig owns up to that he is attracted to men, so if that makes him gay, then he’s gay.  He also adds that he loves Nancy very much.

Next, Chloe wants Craig to end things with the guy and Craig refuses, saying that he and the other man share a great connection and chemistry, something that he’s never felt before and … wait for it … that he is in love with him.

A teary-eyed Craig swears he never meant to hurt Nancy.  Next, Nancy comes upon the scene and announces to Craig that they are staying in Salem, while Chloe tells Craig he needs to come clean with her mom.

So, what did you think about the story turn for the character; where Craig is now in love with another man? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

THIS IS US: Milo Ventimiglia Delivers Heartbreaking Performance As Jack Grieves His Mother’s Death

Tuesday’s episode of This Is Us brought with it the one-man show that is Milo Ventimiglia (Jack). In it, Jack deals with his grief over the death if his mother, and his regret over not getting to know his mother and her life after she left his abusive father.  However, it was the final scene where the stoic Jack finally allows himself to feel the gravity of her loss that was a five-hankie tearjerker.

Milo spoke to TV Line where he shares how he got through the emotional final scene when Jack breaks down expressing: “Jack has to excuse himself from his wife and kids and go to the other room, and he’s in the other room, I remember Mandy just saying like, ‘Milo, what can I do for you, what do you need?’ And I was like, ‘Just let me know that you’re there, you know?’ But I think the man that Jack is, the product of the ’40s that he is, the man who went to war in the early ’70s, you know, he’s never going to show his emotion. So, knowing that his kids are in the other room and his wife is in there and all of that, he’d still keep his back to them, because he’d never want them to see it.”

The actor also speaks on Jack’s pivotal line at the end of the episode: “He gets to the point of realization that comes at the end of the episode when he says, ‘Rebecca, I don’t have a mom anymore.’ It’s all just very heavy and overwhelming, and even though Jack has been the stoic lion rock that he is in making sure that nobody else suffers or deals any discomfort or anything, you know, he’s not impervious to it. He’s going to experience things the same as any other person.  So, going back in a very childlike way and saying to his wife, ‘I don’t have a mom anymore, it’s pretty heartbreaking.”’
