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.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

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.

Courtesy/WWE

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.

Courtesy/WWE

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.

General Hospital

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).

Photo: ABC

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.

Photo: ABC

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.
