THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope Is Reunited With Beth; And Liam Is The Hero

Courtesy/CBS

One thing that The Bold and the Beautiful does better than any other show in the genre is those big sweeping, majestic pay-offs, after months of fans tearing out their hair hoping that the truth will finally be revealed.  But when it does, its a watershed moment; which usually brings the audience to tears.

On Monday and Tuesday’s episode, B&B did just that, bringing the climax of the this first major arc of the story to a conclusion following Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) and Liam (Scott Clifton) going to toe-to-toe, or should we say fist-to-fist, which led them to the rooftop, which led to Liam’s headlock on Thomas with a confused Hope (Annika Noelle) standing there as the men try to kill each other.  However in the process, Liam getting Thomas to admit to Hope that he knew Beth was alive.  Since Thomas did not dispute, Hope knew it was true!

Next, Thomas gets out of Liam’s grip and runs off.  At that moment … cue the beautiful backdrop,  high above the building with all of Los Angeles below them, and the looks and the hugs between Liam and Hope as overjoyed parents knowing the little girl they thought had died was alive.

Thank goodness, Liam, played to perfection by Scott Clifton was not a doofus in this story, but was the one to put all the pieces together, with a major assist from Douglas!  And … kudos to Annika Noelle for her emotional turn as the big bombshell and secret was finally let out of the bag.

Later At the cliff house, Liam sends the babysitter home since Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is out (We will get to that point in a minute).  Hope is overcome with emotion as they get close to the room where Beth is.  Liam goes to get Beth, while Hope has a flashback to that horrible night in Catalina where she was told her baby died.

When Liam appears with Beth,  Hope tells the little one that they are going to start over, since she never got a chance to hold her or raise her.  Beth utters “Mama, mama,” as Hope sobs tears of joy, and Liam looks on.  Next, Liam and Hope share a kiss as they realize all seems well as they have their baby back.

But hold on! What do you think Steffy will do next?  Is she just going to let Beth go that easy?  We don’t think so! Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of the moment when Hope realized Beth was truly alive, and shared the moment with Liam on the rooftop, and then later was re-introduced to the baby girl she thought she had lost? Comment below.

One of the most pathetic storylines that idiot bell has told now that it is over can this buffoon tell a story with his other cast ? So sick of seeing the story always about the same three people ! Please end the character of Steffy from these other two morons gosh please have Kelly be Bill’s he has destroyed his fathers legacy

What an actress!! Annika Noelle’s look of pure elation made me burst into tears. You could just feel the realization that her child was alive from her facial expressions. She didn’t even need to say a word. Had to re-watch it a couple of times. SO SO GREAT!

Ugh. Why?!?!?!?

I miss the old days when this baby switch would’ve played out for 3 or 4 months and then back burnered for a few years with several almost reveals before the big pay off. Waiting until baby Beth was 5 or 6 years old would’ve been much more dramatic and emotional as the child was ripped from the only mother she’d ever known and then forced to live with a new mother. Once again this show never fails to disappoint.

And of course baby Beth will get sick and need a donor and they’ll test Kelly who won’t be match because she’s really Bill’s baby but then Steffy will be pregnant with Liam’s baby from their one night together after Thomas drugged him.

Yawwwwwwwwwwwwn…

I’m ready to see everyone go down for this. Reese, Flo, Zoe, Shauna… send them all to prison and commit Thomas to a psych ward. This story has completely ruined the fabric of the show, and has bent so many characters to fit the plot, not least of all Thomas. Flo and Shauna have been terrible additions to the canvas, and with Zoe being a relatively new character that many viewers hadn’t warmed up to yet, throwing her into the mix and having her be complicit in this crime did not score her any points. Zander did the smart thing by getting out of dodge. But I guess one good thing came out of the story – Emma’s death. She was insufferable, and the actress was terrible. Good riddance to this story.

The story didn’t go as long as I had hoped for but yet it was so great to see the climax. Once the payoff started coming together, my heart was pumping so fast it was just so overwhelming.

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Now, the fallout begins! As Ridge and Katie (Heather Tom) are besides themselves with hurt and betrayal as it appears that Bill and Brooke once again could not keep their hands and lips off of each other.

Ridge has had it, and in no uncertain terms, smashes the iPad in defiance of the memories he shared with Brooke , and then after Bill opens his mouth to try to explain how Brooke needed comforting over Thomas (Matt Atkinson), especially since Ridge never believed her about his son, Ridge then hauls off and punches the guy.

Katie can’t believe it either!  She thought this was buried once and for all between them, but then she realizes she feels once again gullible to her sister’s seemingly endless attraction to the man she loves, Bill!

Quinn is loving every minute of this, and meanwhile at Shauna’s, Flo (Katrina Bowden) and Shauna (Denise Richards) are discussing why Shauna is leaving town, which stems from her loving Ridge, and not being able to be with him; even though she knows that Brooke’s world can come tumbling down with that videotape of that kiss with Bill.  Might she still have her shot at love with Ridge?

Back at the party, Brooke tries to explain to all and mostly to Ridge and Katie, how the kiss happened, and how it did not mean anything, and that she was in a vulnerable place after Thomas had just left.  So, Bill came in to comfort her.  But no matter how hard she tried, and through her tears and through her pleas that she loves Ridge and her sister, Ridge is  now ready to walk out on Brooke for good, and Katie is disgusted.

In this episode, B&B stalwart, Katherine Kelly Lang delivered a great performance of a woman who knows she did wrong, tries to explain it away and rationalize what happened; when nothing good could possibly come out of it for her.  Open, vulnerable, honest Brooke lays it all on the line, but who is going to easily forgive her for this?

After the episode aired, B&B and CBS Daytime released the promo for next week’s episodes, which show that Ridge does wind up at Shauna’s. (Check it out below) Now, what will happen between them and is Bridge finally over?
