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 being a brunette and give them a good story you can do it ! Probably in the end you will find out he is not her son

Today should be goooood!

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.

Epic!

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!

Who’s his real father – Eric!

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

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mac Comes Home

You probably needed the hankies during today’s Wednesday, June 19th episode of General Hospital, for it marked the return of fan favorite John J. York to his role as Mac Scorpio.

This was to be York’s first episode back on-screen since he underwent treatment for two blood cancers and revealed his health diagnosis and battle publicly back in September of 2023.

The scenes involving Mac gave viewers all the feels, and it looked as if reality and the soap blurred, especially in York’s scenes with his on-screen children, Maxie (who Max raised) and grandchildren, Georgie, James, and Bailey Louise, and wife, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Since Mac was out of town supposedly down in South America helping a ‘friend’, some things have changed, including Spinelli (Bradford Anderson). having moved in with Maxie and the kids, to which Mac does not disapprove.

In the meantime, Cody (Josh Kelly) is a man in conflict when he has second thoughts about not telling Mac he is his biological son.  When James shows up Maxie’s with Cody in tow, he lays his eyes upon the just-arrived-back-in-town Mac. The two share pleasant “hellos.” Later, back at the Quartermaine stables, Cody tells Tracy (Jane Elliot) the long and winding road story of not knowing who is father was for most of his life. Cody shares he finally found his father in Port Charles, but his father doesn’t know he has a son. Tracy thinks Cody now has a chance to re-set some things and should come clean.

Meanwhile, Felicia keeps getting calls from Maxie while she is work at General Hospital and does not pick up. So, Felicia is unaware that her husband is back. Eventually, Felicia arrives at Maxie’s and is in for a big surprise when Mac appears and the two hug and share a kiss.

After the episode aired, and seeing the reaction from GH fans, John J. York took to his account on X. York expressed, “WOW!!! I’m just so humbled by your warm, kind and gracious words as Mac returned to PC! Your support has been monumental! I have a feeling, things are about to get interesting!”

So, what did you think about Mac’s homecoming on GH? Were you touched just seeing John J. York back in action on the ABC soap opera? Comment below.

WWE Clash at the Castle: CM Punk Costs Drew McIntryre Title Victory in His Home Country

On Saturday, the WWE visited Glasgow, Scotland for the first time in company history for the PLE on Peacock, Clash at the Castle. Five matches took place inside OVO Hydro Arena, and each one had a title on the line.

There were four wrestlers on the card from Scotland, making this even more dramatic, and the crowd in attendance was electric throughout singing, chanting, booing and cheering for their favorites.

DREW MCINTRYE VS. DAMIAN PRIEST for the WWE Championship

The man of the hour in Glasgow was supposed to be Drew McIntyre. This was to be the Scottish warrior’s opportunity to win the WWE Championship belt from Damian Priest. Things looked like a McIntrye win was on the way, but when the referee accidentally got knocked out and Drew hit a Claymore on Priest, he clearly won the match with over a three-count, only with no referee there, it could not be made official.

All of a sudden a ref was seen running to ringside and when he slid in the ring to do the official count, he stopped at two! Drew looked up and the camera revealed it was McIntyre’s arch enemy, CM Punk. Next, Drew started to attack Punk, but the “Voice of the Voiceless” gave him a low blow, costing him the match as Priest went on the offense while the original knocked out referee got back the ring just in time for Priest to pin McIntyre with a three-count.

It should be noted there was a major botched move and scary moment within the match.  riest tried to jump off the ring but he got his foot caught in the ropes and could not easily be extricated. After minutes, McIntyre was able to flip him up and over to get him out of the ropes. It was clear throughout the match that Priest was injured as he hobbled around for most of it.

CODY RHODES VS. AJ STYLES “I Quit” match for the Universal WWE Heavyweight Championship

Has there ever been a babyface as over as Cody Rhodes? We don’t think so. His popularity continues to soar and on this night in Glascow, Scotland, there was nothing but chants of “Cody! Cody Rhodes!”

In the rematch between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles for the Universal title, it was an “I quit” match, where the only way you can lose is by saying the word “I quit!” when the referee puts a mic in front of your face, so everyone can hear the words.  That means, it would be an often brutal match.

One of the key moments occurred when Mamma Rhodes slapped AJ at ringside, which allowed Cody to recover and throw a chair at Styles who then went backward over the top rope and landed on a table and crashed through it (it was the table strategically placed there earlier in the night that most forgot about during the match).

At that point, Rhodes landed three Cross Rhodes and handcuffed Styles to the ropes as he relentlessly hit him with the chair. Styles didn’t quit yet but when Rhodes brought the steel steps into the ring, Styles all of a sudden uttered, “I Quit.” Cody retains the title. For good measure, and to show he can be a badass too, we guess. Rhodes threw the steps at Style for a punctuation point ending their feud for now.

As Rhodes walked back from the ring, he was accosted by the Bloodline – Solo Sikoa, Tanga Loa and Tama Tonga. However, Kevin Owens and Randy Orton came to “The American Nightmare’s” defense. It was not lost on the WWE Universe, that “The Viper” looked like he may take aim at Cody’s title with some serious looks captured on social media. Could SummerSlam in August feature Randy vs Cody for the title? Stay tuned.

Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill vs. Zoey Stark and Shayna Baszler vs. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn for the Women’s Tag Team titles.

The champs, Belair and Cargill have looked unstoppable and unbeatable with their sheer strength and ability to overpower their opponents. However, on this night, the crowd was firmly behind Scotland’s Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn. In a three-way for the title, the belts can change hands even if the current champions are not involved in the pin. That was the case here. In a shocker, as Belair and Cargill looked like they were about to win after their power combo on Shayna Baszler, it was Isla Dawn who snuck in and got the pin.

Cargill and Belair are stunned outside the ring, and Alba and Isla celebrated their massive victory in their home country in front of their families who give them bouquets of flowers at ringside. It should be noted, that Alba Frye tragically lost her mother, less than a month ago when she was hit by a driver in Florida. During the post-show press conference, Triple H said Alba and Isla winning the titles had nothing to do with the loss of Frye’s mother; in terms of the timing of the decision to have the duo win the belts. Now, could this be the end for Jade and Bianca? Will Jade turn heel on Bianca?

OTHER MATCH-UPS

Sami Zayn defeated Chad Gable to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship – the main takeaway coming out of the match is the continued disfunction in the Alpha Academy and Otis walking away with an ‘injured’ Maxine, and not helping Gable out when he needed it to win the match. Will Otis now officially turn on Gable?

Bayley defeated Scotland’s Piper Niven to retain the WWE Women’s Championship – Niven gave it her all for the hometown crowed, but Bayley’s in-ring savvy and finisher were too much for her.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Elizabeth and Jason Have a Heart-to-Heart; Is a Liason Reunion Possible?

Have Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) 2.0 finally gone kaput? It would seem so. On Monday’s June 10th episode of General Hospital, it looks like the two now have what could be an insurmountable rift. Finn is drinking and can’t stop. Liz finds him with another woman drunk in his apartment, and can’t put herself in another relationship with someone who has an addiction (Remember, Lucky?).

Who should save Liz from an uncomfortable situation with Finn, but none other than Jason (Steve Burton). He comes upon on the scene where Finn is grabbing Liz’s hand to not leave him, but she insists it’s over between them.

Finn has hit his lowest point.  He has continued to spiral downward since the death of his father, Gregory.  Jason brings Liz to the Metro Court pool, which is closed at this time.

She admits to Jason, she wasn’t ready to go home and answer questions from her kids. A somber Jason says that she deserves better than what Finn is giving to her right now, and Liz feels so do her kids. They dip their feet in the pool. Liz jokes she can’t believe she got thee Jason Morgan to take off his shoes. He coyly asks her not to tell anyone.

Liz says she wants to support Finn through his grief, but Jason says Finn is pushing her away. She asks Jason how he knew to find her at Finn’s. That’s when he reveals, their son, Jake was worried about her, so it was Jake who reached out to him.

Next, Liz thanks Jason for being here for him, listening to her and extolling some advice.  Jason says he knows he is no place to be giving advice because he left her and Sam to raise his sons all on their own.

However, Liz points out it’s not because he didn’t want to be there. On that note, she’s pretty sure he wasn’t on vacation all the years he was away from his children. Jason says he’s here now and he will do whatever he can to make things up to Jake. Liz says just showing up to help her will go a long way with Jake, as it also goes along way with her.

You can watch the heartfelt scenes between Rebecca Herbst and Steve Burton below. Liason has been trending this evening on X.  Should GH consider putting Elizabeth and Jason back together? Weigh-in via the comment section.
