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.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

Courtesy/ABC

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.
