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

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Comes Home as Jason and Carly Begin Their Wedding Night

Monday’s episode of General Hospital continued to set the stage for major payoffs in the long and winding road tale of everyone in Port Charles believing Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is dead.

Only now, with his memory in tact, Sonny is very much alive, no longer living as “Mike” in Nixon Falls. and back in the town which he ruled as the mob kingpin.  Problem is: his wife, Carly (Laura Wright) just got married to his best friend, Jason (Steve Burton) and they are about to have their first night together as newlyweds.  And without all the subplot and subtext, Sonny has no idea that they were first brought together to be a united front to save Sonny’s territory from the ‘Five Families’.  Only now, the two have admitted they truly are in-love with each other.

In story, after the bomb that went off was proven to kill mobsters Buscema and Novak, and not its intended target – the newlyweds – thanks to a double-cross from Ms. Wu – Jason, Carly, and Ms. Wu discuss Cyrus Renault’s (Jeff Kober) involvement and that Wu is happy for Jason and Carly.

 

At the wedding reception, Michael (Chad Duell) gives a touching speech about his mom and Jason and gives the official toast.  Later, Jason and Carly head out after Carly throws the bouquet which Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) catches.

Meanwhile, back in Nixon Falls, Sonny gets out of dodge and away from Nina (Cynthia Watros), thanks to Jax’s (Ingo Rademacher) plane, while Nina gets a visit from Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Anna (Finola Hughes), where she admits that Peter (Wes Ramsey) was in Nixon Falls, and caused the fire, and is going to go after Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and the baby.  She does not tell them what she did keeping Sonny away from his family for 9 months.

Anna and Peter split up to find Peter, and Peter’s exit ride hasn’t show up yet to get him out of Nixon Falls, so Anna catches him, gun drawn.

Later at the Corinthos home, Jason and Carly are alone together in the bedroom with wedding night jitters, but Jason says there is no rush as the two kiss, just as Sonny arrives home, smiles, looks around, sees photos of himself with Carly and the family, and heads upstairs!

Will Sonny find the two in each others arms and not tell then he is alive?  Will something call him away? Will Jason and Carly have sex? When will Nina get payback for all that she has done to Carly and Sonny?  Will Peter get away from Anna? Let us know your theories in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
