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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!

Roger Howarth Returns to General Hospital and Debuts His New Character

Thursday was a special day for longtime fans of General Hospital and those of fan favorite Roger Howarth.  Today, Howarth returned in his new role on the ABC daytime drama series, who’s name is “Austin” and that viewers learn is a doctor, and that is all we know thus far.

General Hospital and Howarth previously noted that even though he was killed-off a few months ago as Franco Baldwin after he was shot in a struggle with Peter August (Wes Ramsey) that he would make his re-emergence on the canvas sometime in May.

Now with summer right around, Howarth is back.  When we first see his new soap incarnation of “Austin”, he comes to the rescue of Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), who has gone into labor and found her way into the woods to escape the clutches of evil Nurse Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown) and Peter’s machinations.

And … as she just so happens to need a doctor, lo and behold there is Austin in the woods from what appears to be a hike, who ultimately helps deliver Maxie’s baby girl.  Trouble is, at the end of the episode, it appears that baby Louise might not be breathing.

In a summer preview for GH, in the brand new issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands this weekend, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased, “Roger’s new character has an interest in a prominent Port Charles family.  He’ll shake up the canvas in surprising ways as summer unfolds.”

So, were you happy to see Roger back on GH today? Do you like that he is seemingly playing a doctor? Share your theories on his new character”Austin” via the comment section. But first check out, Howarth’s debut as Austin in the clips below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sean Donely’s Funeral Brings Unexpected & Emotional Moments for His Friends and Loved Ones

If you caught Friday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, it was the airing of the highly-anticipated tribute episode to the late John Reilly with an homage to his beloved character, Sean Donely.

What made this such a well-conceived hour of television was it truly harkened back to the 80’s hey day of GH, had a built-in story that brought Reilly’s real-life daughter, Caitlin Reilly, into the fold, found ways to integrate classic clips of Sean and his spy friends and colleagues, and viewers even got to hear the voice of the one and only Sharon Wyatt as Tiffany Hill Donely.

Photo: ABC

The episode starts in Ireland where Sean’s gravesite service has concluded and things are icy between Anna (Finola Hughes) and Felicia (Kristina Wagner).  As Anna tries to reach out to Felicia she is not having it, but Mac (John J. York) hopes the two longtime best friends will find a way to work this out.

Meanwhile, Annie (Caitlin Reilly) points Sean’s friends (who have traveled all the way from Port Charles to Ireland to be there for the funeral) to the Inn where they will be staying.  Robert talks to Annie about applying to the bureau. She says she went through the training program, took the oath, but was never called for the final test. She just assumed she didn’t make the cut.  Robert also explains they need access to some of Sean’s old files on another matter of dire consequences, but Annie won’t give up the code.

As Laura (Genie Francis) goes outside to call Tiffany, we hear the voice of Sharon Wyatt talk to her dear friend, the Mayor of Port Charles, and Laura tells Tiffany how much she misses her old friend, as Tiffany recall her life with Sean and viewers see a montage of Sean and Tiffany scenes through the years.  Next, Laura is grabbed and a clue is left behind in her room – a Mexican flag and a toy gun as a remembrance of when Sean ran illegal arms and was on the wrong side of the law.  Next, Monica (Leslie Charleson) is seemingly grabbed, and a clue is left behind, a trinket from Mount Rushmore.

Later, Felicia rips into Anna for allowing Peter into their lives and not protecting Maxie. Anna promises Felicia she’s trying to put Peter behind bars for good and to find justice for Maxie.  As Felicia and Anna flashback through moments in their lives with Sean, Felicia tells Anna that he would not have wanted them to be at odds and so she forgives Anna, and the two women hug as Mac looks on.

Mac is the next friend of Sean’s to apparently get kidnapped. That is followed by Robert (Tristan Rogers) getting conked over the head.  Annie finds Robert’s phone, and she finds a magnet in Anna’s purse which wiped out the computer earlier that Anna and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) were trying to access to check the security footage at the Inn.

Annie now believes Anna and Robert are in on what’s happening. Anna again says she wants access to Sean’s file, but Annie refuses to grant access to her. She says she’s loyal to the WSB. It is then Anna tells Annie that this was her final test for the WSB and she passed it!  As all of Sean’s friends who ‘disappeared’ return to watch, Robert gives Annie her dad’s WSB badge number and they congratulate her in a very hankie-inducing moment.

Later, everyone gathers to toast Sean, as they raise their glass it is Tristan Rogers, who broke our hearts when he says there will never be another one like Sean.  In real life, Tristan was close to John Reilly and publicly had admitted how devastated he was by his former castmates passing.

In Port Charles, it was nice to see Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) part of the tribute episode to, and in a touching scene BJ’s heart that beats inside Maxie was brought up reminding everyone of that emotional story as well.

Photo:A BC

The episode was filled with several hankie moments and how wonderful was Caitlin Reilly as Annie!  Her dad would be so proud.  And as for Finola Hughes, Kristina Wagner, Tristan Rogers, Kimberly McCullough, Leslie Charleson, Genie Francis, Sharon Wyatt by audio, how touching it was for longtime viewers to see all of these GH veterans together to remind us all of what brought us into GH in the first place.

Kudos to head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and their team for a clever way to honor Sean Donely with the passage of his daughter into the WSB.
