THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope Moves On In Kim Matula's Final Episode!

Today was the final episode of Kim Matula, who for over four years has been front and center on the The Bold and the Beautiful as the younger heroine of the show, Hope Logan Spencer.

B&B did an exceptional job in production of incorporating the elements  of slow motion camera looks, music, edits, montages, story and performance to wrap-up in short order Matula’s exit story throughout the entire week. SPOILER ALERT: If you have not watched today’s episode do not read any further.

In story, after losing her and Wyatt’s (Darin Brooks) unborn baby due to a terrible tumble down the stairs at the Forrester mansion, Hope comes back to the scene of the incident which occurred after a fight with her mother-in-law Quinn (Rena Sofer).  Liam (Scott Clifton), who has been there every step of the way for Hope, finds his star-crossed love, and the two have a simple, yet meaningful talk.  Hope tells Liam, she will always love him, but that she is going away to Milan to see her mother Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang).  She needs time to heal from all she has been through.  And as to when she is coming back, Liam comes to understand he may not see her again for quite some time.

Elsewhere, Wyatt is devastated and guilt-ridden that he not only lost his unborn son, but probably his wife Hope as well, and really lays into his mother for her over-protectiveness, something he then says he should have done for Hope!  Quinn even goes so far as to consider jumping from the Quinn Artisan warehouse rooftop and committing suicide as Bill (Don Diamont) happens upon the scene encouraging her to do so!

In the end, with one last montage, several glances, and plenty emotion, Hope and Liam share one last moment as Hope walks away … and in a symbolic moment … vanishes.

Kudos throughout the week have to go to the performances of Kim Matula, Scott Clifton and Darin Brooks who all stepped up to the plate and played the beats of this long-enduring triangle.

You can watch the final moments of today’s episode below! Then let us know, did you like how things were left between Hope and Liam?  What did you think of the ending? Comment below!

I wish her well, but I am so THANKFUL that I will not have to see those flashbacks of all the weddings and romantic moments in every other episode. 🙂

I wished the writer would finally allow Hope and Liam to marry. Some people need to know true love actually can exist living happily.

Charlene

Totally agree!!!!

Oh come on! True Love??? How true was the love when Liam sulked because Hope couldn’t have dinner with him the night before their wedding so he goes out with Steffy. How true was the love when he kissed Steffy while engaged to Hope?? How true was the love when he didn’t even bother to find out why Hope had to break their engagement – no, he gives Steffy the ring straightaway and the meekly agrees when she turns up dressed for a wedding with a celebrant in tow. Liam has been so weak and then so interfering in recent eipisodes. Poor Ivy.

I wish Kim good luck with whatever she does but it was time to for Hope to go. Brad Bell have gone way over the top in the Lope and then HOTT storyline it just got too boring listening to Hope and her selfish ways the way she left WyAtt straight after baby loss was selfish of Hope she was only thinking of herself and the fact Liam didn’t return the I love you too when she said it to him. So glad Liam may care about Hope but in there final moments you could tell he was not in love with her anymore. I hope Brad Bell spares us any resurrection of Lope ever again most boring couple in Daytime. If there was a recast of Hope it should be HOTT that get together

I agree. The way she left leaving wyatt. Not being there for him like he was for heR,how disrepectable. Hope needs to stay with wyatt and love him and respect him like he deserves. Liam move on. I hate hope and liam together. Move on with them. Tired of hope and liam

maranda

Hope should have said goodbye to Wyatt and tell him that she need time to grieve for the lost of there baby but I still love you so don’t give up on me

The writers, editors really performed a miracle. I liked the way it ended. Hope disappeared like she was a figment of Liam’s imagination. They were able to release Liam from Lope with very little baggage to take forward from that scene. He never said he loved Hope for all the times she declared her love for him. It was as clean an exit and end to Lope as was possible. A minor miracle. Here is hoping we can turn the page to the next chapter of Bold and Beautiful and close the book on the Hope chapter for a while.

That would be a miracle she need to stay with her husband and closed the chapter on Liam for good

I am so sad to see Kim Matula leaving. I am glad the final scenes acknowledged that Hope and Liam still loved each other and should be together. I found it odd that Hope just walked off and vanished in her final scene.

maranda

It is time to started anew chapter with Wyatt

Linda

I loved the ending. Hope recognized she needed physical and emotional healing. When the new Hope returns, refreshed. I am hoping The writers allow Hope and LIAM together one and for all (no games )

Not going to happen keep Liam away from her he needs to be with ivy

Angela

I don’t think so. Liam and Hope have loved each other from the start! They were manipulated and other people got involved like Ivy and Wyatt who should not of been in their lives.

I wish Kim Matula the best of luck in future. The producers of B&B did an EXCELLENT job of closing the Hope – Liam-Wyatt storyline! The final scene with Hope and Liam was wonderful… It brought everything full circle. Although I’m sure Hope will be brought back in at a later time, this role will ALWAYS belong to Ms. Matula. Thank you for four wonderful years, Kim, and good luck!

De

I will miss the Hope and liam dynamic of the show I so wished they could have played their love but I realize love is boring on soaps. If they recast they will have to find a real player because what Hope and Liam have is too big for a slouch actress. I’m also not looking forward to liam and whatever her name is her accent is annoying as all heck.

I think we will see lots of flashbacks until the role is recast.

Would have been nice if she’d said goodbye to her husband.

It was a good final episode with the exception of a proper good bye to Wyatt and her father. Liam had moved on and her husband was hurting too! She showed that she only cared about herself and lik Wyatt told her..she only wants what she doesn’t have. Immaturity on her part not to say goodbye to Wyatt.

Ada
Ada

Wyatt had the nerve to tell Hope that? He is the king of wanting what he doesn’t have! All the things he and Mom did to get Hope for him. From the time they met Liam, Quinn convinced him that everything he had should be Wyatt’s. He even wanted Liam’s house. Quinn has told Wyatt, again on Friday that he is the only love of her life. They have a truly dysfunctional mother/son relationship. Hope should have said goodbye just the way she did w/ Liam. Although Lope might be over (for now) at least that farce of a marriage call Hottmess is over!

Mo
Mo

Agreed. She does want what she can’t have. She wants it all. She should have told Wyatt she was going. She should have said goodbye to her father. Why spend all that time with Liam?

I really hope that while Hope is gone Liam will move on with Ivy. He Needs to cut ties and be happy with a girl who chooses Him! As for Wyatt and Quinn ugh I wish they’d move too. wyatt has No back bone and quinn is Nuts!

Quinn is the female version of Bill. Do you want Bill gone? In fact, Bill has done way worse. Why does he get a pass?

I really liked KM’s send-off and I will miss her.
I am happy that LOPE had a final scene, I always liked their chemistry and would have liked to see a happy ending for them once.

I am very happy with the story that facilitated Kim’s departure. After a tragedy, a young girl goes to be with her mother. She can return any time – no mystery, no plastic surgery. I believe that the character will return shortly – Hope is integral to three families and her presence in story is important.

Adam

I’ve been watching this show for along time and yes it was way too much HOPE the last four years, and I hated it but Kim M could act and she do an awesome job for four years. In end it sad to her go, but hopefully she will find success on nighttime TV and or movies. The ending and the song, the acting, flashbacks were so sad and great. I sure the these two actors will miss each other and you could see it and feel it, just awesome. Anne Heche was awesome on AW and when she left it was not the same, but she did find some success after daytime, so I am sure Kim will as well.

dawnhaze

I’m sure there are many who do and many who don’t but I loved Liam and Hope. Actually I only paid attention when they were on the screen. I probably won’t be watching B&B as often as I did because the other storylines are not very interesting to me. I wish Kim good luck but I hope she comes back after a while. I personally think there just isn’t a better pair as Liam and Hope.

I still think she should have not did her husband like that he’s been nothing but good to her because liam will leave her for another woman he did not love hope that much until someone else showed her some attention because he all ways thought he had hope where he wouldn’t her so with that said I hope she come back to her husband.

I really ejoyed Friday’s episode. I think this story really needed some sort of a break or closure if you will. I really wish they didn’t have to do it in such a tragic way, but it wouldn’t be a soap opera otherwise. I am hoping now the show will focus on the other stories and the terrific actors that play them so well. I’m kind of hoping that maybe Maya will start to crack over her situation with Rick. Maybe she can share a padded cell with Quinn. Looking forward to future episodes and wish Kim nothing but goog wishes on her future endeavors

I thought the scenes surrounding Hope’s departure were extremely well written and that the actors did an amazing job of keeping the emotional integrity of the losses that everyone felt. I especially enjoyed the montage of the hospital visit fused with Quinn learning the news….great job!

Mary SF

Wish her well, but not sure what poor Brad Bell is going to do now that he doesn’t have either Hope or Brooke to write for. He might actually discover there are other characters on the show– LOL.

Well, Brooke should be back soon so she’ll get center stage.

No disrespect to the actress, but this story line has been beaten to death… it is SO over.

I have to disaree with those that feel that the end was well written… I found it rushed and thrown together with the same old flasbacks we have be watching for years. Yesterday she was in the hospital, losing the baby and the very next day she meets with Liam, declares her love and leaves ths very minute to go see her mom, with no regard to her husband who too lost his child?? How is that well written?

Then she walks away, right out of a harlequinn romance novel and disappears into the clouds? There were so many other options here and while I understand it was a vey last minute decision leaving little time, it certainly showed.

I just hope the new actress brings a much stronger less selfish HOPE to the canvas. Liam move on… Wyatt take the time to heal and find somone deserving of you!

Disapponted in Chicago.

ByeBye Hope

The best thing about Friday Dec. 12th’s episode was Hope Leaving. Sorry but I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time now. Her character was just so boring. Not to mention she thinks she a saint but yet she sleeps with brothers dates two brothers at the same time. Quite one and married the other in the same day… Bye Hope, you looked better going then you did coming!

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment
