THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Happy Birthday Steffy Forrester! What Did You Think of the 9000th Episode?

Courtesy/CBS

All hail The Bold and the Beautiful’s Steffy Forrester! Now after all, it is her birthday, and this supermom, wife, and Co-CEO of Forrester Creations is quite the force to be reckoned with.  With today also marking the 9000th episode milestone of the CBS daytime drama series, why not make it a special episode devoted to the character, and its two-time Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.

Throughout the half-hour, Steffy spends a few moments with her dad, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), who gets her the the most fashionable of birthday cakes, then presents her with a slideshow of the life and times of his daughter all the way from when she was a child, to a teen, to a young adult.  Steffy has plans for her birthday with her hubby Finn (Tanner Novlan) so she needs to skedaddle, but dad wants her to hang out a little longer with him.  In the end, Finn wins out, and she heads home.

Now at the cliff house, Steffy comes upon a homemade birthday card from her kids, when Liam (Scott Clifton) shows up.  He says he plans on not staying long, although he did stay long enough for the exes to walk down memory lane, complete with the original song from Scott Clifton that aired previously, and a montage of some of the duos most heartfelt moments.

Meanwhile, back at Forrester Creations, Taylor (Krista Allen) and Ridge praise their daughter. Taylor is happy that the former ‘wild child’ has found a man to love her like Finn.

Back at Steffy’s, Finn set the tone for a romantic night celebrating his wife with some of her favorite food and wine.  Steffy shares to Finn that this birthday means more because he came back to her when she believed he had died, and how they received a second chance at a life together.

Cue the flashbacks of Finn, after being shot by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Steffy over his body, and later their long-awaited reunion in Monaco where the church bells rang when as they ran towards each other.  Next, Finn gives Steffy a birthday gift.  When she opens it, Steffy finds a small remote. When she pushes the button, the bells from the church in Monte Carlo play.  As Finn and Steffy kiss in front of the fireplace, the camera pans out to a an exterior shot of Finn and Steffy at the cliff house revealing the outside sky and fireworks that go off that say ‘9000’  – a great touch to acknowledge the series milestone.

You can check out the final moments of B&B’s 9000th episode below.

Did not watch but just read it so prepare yourself for another round of Liam & Steffy! What a awful outfit she has on

Pretty sure Liam and Steffy will be reuniting again and poor Gorgeous Finn will be out ‍♀️ this sucks lol but I love the drama & I’m so excited to see what they do next!! I Looove Steffy!! She’s the BEST!! Congrats on your 4th pregnancy im so excited for you im praying it’s a girl this time!! You have to have some equality in that house girl you’re outnumbered lol! Hopefully not for long lol! I have a huge feeling though that A certain “Bad Boy” and HOPE will be having some sexy time on set!! Iykyk
I’ve been watching this show since I was like 6 years old & I haven’t stopped since it’s one of my favor soaps the other is Y&R!! B&B & Y&R my favvvvss!! Love you all so much you’re amazing!! ♥️

I’ve never understood hers (JMW) or this show’s appeal. In the 80s with Susan Flannery it was probably good but now it’s seems like woke drivel. I like Heather Tom a lot tho.

A wonderful tribute to Steffy Forrester and the beautiful actress, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, who portrays her, in honor of The Bold & the Beautiful’s 9,000th episode.

The 9000th show sucked. I don’t think it should have been all about Steffy. She hasn’t been there for even half that many episodes! It should have focused on the original players still left: Eric Forrester, Ridge Forrester and Brooke Logan. (Taylor was not an original character, before anyone jumps on me about including her.) Jacqueline Macginnis Wood is not the show. I’ll NEVER understand how or why she wins the awards she does. She is not a very good actress. And for pete’s sake, she needs to decide if she is going to be an actress or a baby making machine! Now she will br off on another pregnancy leave and the show will be repeating the same storyline and dialogue for months upon months again! I’m not anti-woman or anti-child, but if it’s going to constantly interfere with your job, then pick family or work. Sorry, but I am old fashioned like that.

I agree but maybe they may do other feature shows. I agree the OG’s should’ve been honoured. Brooke is the backbone of the show. Steffy is great too. Happy for them all on 9000!

I do wish it was more about Steffy and her history on the show; both the actress and the character, and a lot less about Finn. But It was wonderful that they recognize this actress for her 15 years PLUS she is number 3 in episode count, right behind Kelly and John. That’s a lot of work! Her loyalty to the show is phenomenal. She deserves the honor. (Despite what the haters in your other comments say).

Yes, so happy for her but they could’ve added something at the beginning re the OG’s to honour them— reflecting on Steffy as a leader and innovator “next gen” type thing. It would have been respectful and inclusive ♥️

Missed the episode as it was pre-empted here in Ca in favor of crappy Soccer.

I have never been a Steffy fan as they started her out being deceptive, coniving and a most dislikeable self-centered character. She always seems to get just what she is after by any means that she chooses. I am just not fond of a character that displays those attributes. Not that Jacqueline MacInnes Wood dosen’t do an excellant job, she does, I guess that may be the reason I dislike her (Steffy) so much.

B.L Robinson,
I couldn’t have said it better myself. She sure takes after her Grandmother Stefanie. Unlike today’s show when Ridge was bragging about passing his artistic talent on to Ridge, Jr., that he inherited from HIS dad, Eric. They forgot that Ridge is not Eric’s s son but Masimo Marone’s.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Gregory’s Loved Ones Gather to Say Goodbye

On the Wednesday, June 7th episode of General Hospital, it was time for Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) memorial, which as Gregory wanted would be having his ashes spread with his loved ones in attendance.

The memorial service was held at the park bench in which he used to sit and read to Violet (Jophielle Love), which now has a plaque with his name imprinted on it.

Chase (Josh Swickard) was put in charge of the gathering, by his late father. In very well-written scenes, each of the man’s loved ones and friends extolled words of wisdom they learned from him that will forever remain with them and in their hearts.

Finn (Michael Easton) shares how much his dad, who was suffering from ALS, loved this spot and that when the climb up the hill became too much, he insisted he could make it on his own. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) speaks to what a good man that Gregory was. Violet reads a poem.

Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) opens up about how ALS is a devastating disease that takes resolve to handle, and Gregory had a lot of resolve. He made her aware of the limitations she put on her own life. She admits Gregory got her to jump out of a plane with him and that the two passionately kissed, which surprised everyone in attendance.

Tracy (Jane Elliot) talks with sadness about Gregory being a missed opportunity, and if she had known him sooner, longer and better, who knows what might have been. In the moral to her time with Gregory, Tracy expressed, “If an opportunity doesn’t present itself, make one. Contrary to conventional wisdom, you can miss what you didn’t have.”

Chase spoke last and says his dad taught him to find something remarkable in every person you meet. Next, Chase begins to scatter Gregory’s ashes around the tree, and then hands the container to Finn, so he can spread the last part of the ashes.

Afterwards, Tracy hosts a reception at the Metro Court. She and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) share a shot for Gregory. Alexis tells Finn, she is heading to an AA meeting, but first they discuss the kiss with his dad. Elizabeth and her boys make their exit, and then Chase goes looking for Finn and finds him at the bar. What he sees upsets him, as Finn is knocking back shots one after the other.

What did you think about Gregory’s memorial service? Did you reach for the hankies? What do you think will happen next to Finn now that he is continuing to drink? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Nicole Has Long-Awaited Showdown With Sloan as Carlivati Writing Regime Episodes Begin Again

On the Friday, May 31st episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati promised a nod to the audience that the script they are watching came from his writing team, their first, since the writers strike.

At the beginning of today’s show, one of Carlivati’s favorite muses, Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), is sitting with his laptop saying how bad The Spectator’s writing has gotten, expressing, “No offense Everett, but the quality of the writing has really gone down hill the last couple of months. But that is about to change starting today.”

With that, the viewers finally get the long-awaited confrontation between Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sloan (Jessica Serfaty), which seemed, at first, a bit odd that Sloan snuck into the DiMera mansion to confront Nicole in the first place, when she should be on the run.

Sloan tells Nicole there’s something she has to hear. Nicole starts to call Rafe (Galen Gering) to lock her up, but Sloan stops her. She swears to Nicole she didn’t plan to kidnap Jude. Dimitri showed up with him just as she was running out of options after her adoption fell through with Eric.  “It felt like fate,” Sloan says. “I’ll show you fate,” Nicole shouts and punches Sloan’s lights out.

Nicole is mortified of what Sloan put her through and the lengths of her lies and deceit. That’s when Sloan reminds Nicole she did the exact same thing to Sami (Alison Sweeney) years ago. So, she goes on to say, because of how she stole a baby from its birth mother, maybe she can show her some grace. Nicole shouts, “Never!”

Sloan starts to make her exit as Nicole is calling the cops, and just as Sloan makes it to the doorway, Eric (Greg Vaughan) shows up. Will she tell Eric he is the biological father of baby Jude before EJ (Dan Feuerriegel)​​ returns home?

Meanwhile, outside the Brady Pub, EJ runs into Leo and Leo is on to him. He realizes something is up with Sloan and baby Jude and EJ’s part in any cover-up just as Rafe arrests Melinda  (Tina Huang) for seemingly her part of hatching the baby switch plot.

Elsewhere, Bobby (Blake Berris) has control of Everett right in front of Jada (Elia Cantu), Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), who shows up to help him. It’s now defined to everyone that Bobby is an alter that is protecting Everett from finding out something terrible that happened to him, which caused his split personality.

So, what did you think of the Nicole/Sloan baby switch showdown? Underwhelming? Great? What did you think of the first show back from the regular DAYS writing regime? Do you like how things moved? Do you not like the direction? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
