THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Flo Is The Daughter Of Storm Logan! What Did You Think Of The Twist?

Courtesy/CBS

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, the paternity of Flo (Katrina Bowden) was revealed.  While it seemed like it would turn out to be that Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) fathered another child, that would not be the case.  And, Bill was certainly the most relieved, as was Wyatt (Darin Brooks), because if that were to be true then his ex-flame would have turned out to be his sister!

When Bill read the DNA results after asking Wyatt, while in his office, to bring up the information (interesting that they should have such access). Bill saw the DNA match was the late Storm Logan, complete with photo of GH’s William deVry (Julian) who played Storm on B&B from 2006-2008.  The CBS daytime drama juxtaposed Flo’s paternity with the Logan sisters: Katie (Heather Tom), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis) reminiscing about their brother, and the gift Storm gave Katie after he took his own life …  for Katie would not be alive if it were not for the heart transplant she received with Storm’s heart.

Now it was all about breaking the news to a guilt-ridden Flo, who is constantly in the orbit of grieving mother Hope (Annika Noelle).  While at Forrester, Flo wants to tell Hope she is not the good person she thinks she is.  It is clear Flo wants to come clean about her part and knowledge of the baby switch; which has sent Hope’s baby Beth into the arms of Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes) to raise her.  Hope is still unaware that her baby is alive, which is all she talks about to Flo and the connection and bond they have.

So, as timing would have it, while Hope and Flo are having a heart-to-heart, in bursts Shauna (Denise Richards), Bill, Wyatt, and Quinn (Rena Sofer).  They tell Flo they have big news and that Hope will want to hear it, too.  Shauna tells her daughter that this wonderful man, Storm Logan. is her biological father.

Wouldn’t you know?  That makes Hope and Flo cousins.  Hope thinks that is what Flo was trying to tell her.  Little does she know that her cousin is a conspirator in taking her baby.

So, what did you think of the paternity twist? Did you expect Flo to turn about to be the newest Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful, or do you think there is a twist on a twist coming and this will turn out not to be the case?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Don’t these people ever practice safe sex. This show is turning into an inner circle. If your DNA isn’t connected to a Spencer, Logan or Forrester, you can’t join the club. I think Sally and Zoe are the only ones who fit that mold. Oh I forgot, Zoe is in because she is dating a Forrester. (An adopted Forrester, but a Forrester none the less). Now please pardon my ignorance, but doesn’t it have to be a 100% match? It said only 52%. What about the other 48? I was really hoping that Bill was the father for the sole reason that I am liking the Wyatt and Sally connection. I am really not in the mood for a Wyatt, Flo, Sally back and forth for the next 50 years. I think Hope needs to turn it down a notch or two. It looked like she was on the verge of stalking Flo. I wonder if and when the truth is going to come out. Time will tell I guess. Happy viewing everybody

Zoe is dating an Avant, not a Forrester.

You are right. I forgot that his father and Maya’s father are brothers. My mistake

This was definitely a curve ball that the writers threw the fans of the show. Never in a million years would I have thought that Flo would be Storm’s daughter which in hindsight, plays beautifully into the baby switch storyline and the drama that will unfold when the truth about Beth eventually comes out.

Well, I wonder why they didnt made her Hopes sister. Deacon was a gambler, so it made much more sense if he had a ONS with Flo’s mother, in Vegas. I dont see any point in Storm being the father. He is not coming back, so where is the drama.

Being Deacons daughter would have made so much more sense. Deacon is still alive, has another son (offscreen) and is a character with enough depth and history on this show.

The character of Flo does work though, the actress is good and she brings a fresh breath of air to this show.

Ok………. I saw a group picture with the actress who plays Flo, along with the other Logan women and I noticed how much she looks like them.

Great twist. So glad Bill wasn’t the daddy AGAIN! LOL

Since it seems like Flo is Brad Bell’s new pet, and he’s trying desperately to “make Flo happen” against the wishes of most fans, it makes sense that she’s now tied to one of the show’s core families. It was also a shock that Storm, a long forgotten and barely mentioned character, is Flo’s father. It’s sad that we won’t get to see them bond, but hopefully this reveal will lead to the reveal of the baby swap soon, because that story has gotten stale.

Thank god that Flo didn’t turn out to be Bill’s daughter. Aside from the obvious ick factor regarding Wyatt, it would also be crazy to do yet another long-lost paternity reveal for Bill Spencer. He has enough of a mess to deal with already with Liam, he’s just gotten back into Wyatt’s good graces, and he’s trying to be a real father to Will.

I just don’t like that we’re getting Flo shoved down our throats constantly. She’s been on almost every episode for the last two weeks. Where is Donna’s story? Why was she placed back on contract if they aren’t going to write for her? What about Maya? She returned months ago, announced her divorce from Rick for some unknown reason, and she hasn’t been seen since. Justin also hasn’t had a story of his own basically ever, but he still hangs around. And Ingo Rademacher was treated very poorly with barely any story aside from Thorne’s quickie marriage to Katie, which ended abruptly for no reason in order to usher him out. Hopefully GH treats him better. And all this for what? So that the entire cast can prop up newbie Flo and B&B could bring Denise Richards on as yet another useless character? Thank you, next.

B&B has a pattern of doing this. New characters are brought on who dominate story for weeks or months at a time while long-standing characters are ignored. Vets get tired of it and bail, and eventually story dries up for those new characters and one of two things happen. Either the same story is repeated (the never-ending Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle) or the characters disappear/are written out (most recently Thorne, and before him Rick, Zende, Nicole and Emma).

So, with that in mind, we’ll probably have to “go with the Flo” for the next few months and eventually she’ll be sidelined too, when Brad Bell decides to tell a different story with a bunch of newer newbies.

Jimmy, I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I loved Maya’s whole family for the brief time they were on. I thought with Donna coming back, they would pair her up with Justin, or bring Marcus and Amber back with their child and we could watch Donna and Justin be doting grandparents together. But this whole thing with Flo and Hope is definitely grating on my last nerve. I guess there is going to be some huge back story created between Bill and Flo’s mother. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Take care and thanks for listening.

Sigh. B&B loves the twists. But the show is never so good on the then-what. There is never any long-term follow-through. I am not sure why the show has become more Logan than Forrester. I miss the fashion-centric stories and the dynamics of the original family. I see this as the addition of one more player in the endless merry-go-round of quickie crushes, marriages, and dubious parentages. Frankly, I am tired of it.

The show just repeats the same story lines bringing in the celebrity star for a couple of months before it does another variation again. Brooke, Taylor Ridge act 2000. The show needs new story lines and should make people act their ages.

The only reason this show is still on is Baby boy Brad owns it all I have not watched in months just reading recaps makes me sick now all the sudden we remember Katie has a scar? Storm was a loser too bad he is still not on the show they could have adjoining prison cells . He has insulted current and past actors on this pathetic show. All I can say is these pathetic actors who still work for him must need a pay check go into real estate or some other crap but you have no pride or respect for the genre if you continue to work for this pathetic human being

Momo

Shocked!!! But a good move. The scenes when Bill was confronted by Shauna were funny. Don is the best.

While the Logans kept saying what a noble thing Storm did, they seem to forgot that it was his fault that Katie need a heart transplant in the first place!!!

I did think it odd that Storm’s ancestry/DNA was in the system considering he died before home ancestry kits were available. And they don’t show up nice and neat they way it showed on screen, but I guess that’s TV.

I hope we have a scene of Flo listening to Katie’s heart.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.

So, what did you think of these four cliffhangers? What do you think will happen with Brad, Lucas and the car that Julian tampered with?  Will this be the end of Mike as his condition continues to spiral downward? Will Neil or Julian save Alexis from Kendra? What will Finn’s next move be?  Will he tell Violet that her mother is gone? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Y&R’s Peter Bergman Reminds Us All Why He is One-of-a-Kind in Memorable Flashback-Driven 30th Anniversary Episode

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless featured the highly-touted and highly-anticipated 30th anniversary show for Peter Bergman.  For three decades, and with three Daytime Emmys for his work, Bergman has made Jack Abbott one of soap operas all-time classic characters.

And, if anybody needed a reminder, or a refresher course of just how good Peter Bergman has been in this role, you needed to look no further than the tremendous flashbacks the producers of the series pulled to punctuated Jack Abbott’s life story since Bergman’s arrival on the scene, replacing Terry Lester in the pivotal role.

Photo: CBS

What was great about this standalone episode, celebrating a milestone for one of their legacy cast members, was that it did not show the same ole’ same ole’ clips that often can be standard fare in soapland.  Instead, viewers were treated to some of the more heartbreaking moments for Jack, i.e. when he tells Nikki that their son who had died saved another child’s life, and that he got to hold the baby.  Then there was the gut-punch when Jack realizes Phyllis has been sleeping with none other than Nick Newman, and he feels the fool and that she played him.  There is the moment when Jack tells his dying father John, that he will look after the family now, and there is even boardroom corporate drama that back in the day was so exciting to see.  How great were Jess Walton and Bergman together back then as Jill and Jack? And then there is the rivalry of soap rivalries between Victor Newman and Jack Abbott played to the hilt by Eric Braeden and Bergman, respectively.

Watching Bergman’s work in flashbacks would be enough on its own. Now add to that the real-time mature version of Jack, who has realized his many failings and how he would do anything to be CEO of Jabot, including duping his sister, Ashley with the Blood-Abbott clause and more, and you’ve got soap gold.  You definitely needed some hankies for this episode, especially watching the reactions of Bergman acting mostly by himself when going in and out of the flashbacks.  We have often said, no male actor can cry quite like Peter Bergman, and move you to tears.  And in this episode, he did that several times over.

How fitting that Jack was sitting around with his siblings: Traci, Billy, and Ashley as well as his mother, Dina, his son, Kyle and his niece Abby, that brought the episode to its conclusion looking back at the life and times of the Abbott family through Traci’s manuscript that Jack helped write.

In the end, Jack celebrates what being an Abbott means, and remembers those who have passed, and looks forward to new members of the clan to come.
