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: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope To Steffy, “I’m Taking My Daughter & Don’t You Dare Try To Stop Me”

The next key revelation of the baby switch; that devastated the lives of Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton), but gave Steffy a baby to raise and a sister to Kelly, began to unravel on Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

Now that Hope knows for sure that Beth is alive and has been living as “Phoebe” under Steffy’s care, it was time to lower the boom on Steffy.  So, at the cliff house, a distraught Steffy refuses at first to believe the truth.  She says, “That baby can’t be Beth … she’s Phoebe!”

Liam (Scott Clifton) tells Steffy that he and Hope can do whatever genetic testing is necessary to prove it to her, but that it will indeed come back and prove that they are the biological parents to the little girl.   As they explain the events that led to Steffy ‘adopting’ Beth, she learns from Liam and Hope that Dr. Buckingham sold their baby for a gambling debt and how Steffy’s mom, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) was unknowingly buying their baby to give to her.

Hope says she cannot wait to take little Beth home, and how grateful she is that Steffy took such good care of her daughter all of these months.  Then, Steffy blurts out: “You’re not taking my daughter from the only home she’s ever known.  I’m her mommy.”  Steffy tries to use the reasoning that if Hope takes Phoebe away, she will be ripping her from the only home she has ever known.  Hope. who is becoming more frustrated and upset with Steffy says, “Her name is Beth.”  She then informs Steffy that she and Liam will let her help out with the transition.

Steffy starts to have a meltdown as she realizes that the little girl is really Beth.  Next, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive on the scene.  Steffy defies Hope and tells her again, “There’s no way you’re taking my daughter home.”  Brooke reminds her and everyone in the room that there was nothing legal about the adoption, while Ridge tries to make everyone understand how Steffy is also blindsided.  Steffy continues on how she is the only mother Beth knows, and the cliff house as her home.

A steadfast Hope tells Steffy in no uncertain terms she is now with her, her real mother, who she should have been with since the day she was born.  Hope tells Steffy again how grateful she is to her … but she firmly tells her, “I’m taking my daughter, and don’t you dare try to stop me.”  We fade to black.

Last week and this week, the cast involved in the baby switch storylime from: Annika Noelle, Scott Clifton, to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood have delivered strong and memorable performances as the payoff of this story continues.

So, do you hope Hope just walks right on out with Beth?  Do you think Steffy will go so far as to fight for custody? Take off with Beth and runaway? Share your thoughts om what you think will happen next via the comment section below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Franco Wake Up As Drew & Become The Next Victim Of Mind-Mapping?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, picked up from the major plot twist; and unfortunately for Franco (Roger Howarth), even with the arrival of Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) to save the day; according to Dr. Cabot (Time Winters), the mind-mapping transfer could not be stopped.  And as the men were all bantering and arguing about, the download into Franco’s brain was fully completed.  Then, Cabot tells Drew that when Franco wakes up, it will be with the memories of Drew dating back to 2012.

Now the questions are, did the procedure work?  Will Franco awake from this nightmare with the history and personality of Drew, or could Dr, Cabot’s experiment be a bust on him?  Next. Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Chase (Josh Swickard) show-up.  Liz is heartsick to begin to learn what happened in the warehouse to her son, Cameron (William Lipton) and her husband.  Chase arrests Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but he also goes to GH to get medical attention for his wounds from the fight with Drew and Curtis.

Once, Franco is taken to General Hospital still unconscious, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) is on the medical case and gets him a neurological work-up.  Lucas then has to stitch up Shiloh, who continually throws jabs at the good doc about Wiley.   Then in a bit of foreshadowing, Dr. Cabot tells Drew, that he will thank him once Franco wakes up with Drew’s memories.  Does that mean that Drew could have done some horrible things in his past … or that Shiloh will leave Drew alone, because what he needs is inside Franco’s brain now? Drew hopes his memories stay buried.

In heartbreaking scenes, and in touching performances from William Lipton and Rebecca Herbst; as well as Billy Miller, Cam tells his mother about Franco’s last words to him to,  ‘Tell your mom I love her and that I’ll be back”.   Liz learns how Franco protected her son, and traded places with him. Next, Liz sits by an unconscious Franco, and in tears, thanks him for keeping Cameron safe, but laments that it would be a far less wonderful world without Franco in it, and begs him to come back to her, and what a hero he is for what he did saving her son.

Courtesy/ABC

In addition, Cameron gives Drew a key piece of Intel he learned during his kidnapping and while the mind-mapping procedure on Franco was taking place.  Shiloh is looking for a specific memory that would allow him to disappear, and that is why he is so determined to get inside Drew’s head from back in the day, by any means possible!  When Cameron sees Shiloh being taken away by Chase, he runs at him but is stopped by Drew. Cameron threatens a snide and laughing Shiloh that he will, “Make him pay.”  Uh-oh!  Is a murder mystery on the way, too?  Drew tries to talk down Cameron.

As the episode comes to it conclusion, Lucas informs Elizabeth that the test results show that all of the physical functions of Franco’s brain are working normally,  However, they won’t know the impact of the mind-mapping procedure until Franco wakes up.

So, what do you think Franco will wake up as Drew? The procedure will half work and he will be part Franco and part Drew? The procedure is a dud? What did you think of the performances from everyone involved in this storyline?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
