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

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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.

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 )

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!

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.

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
Guest
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… Read more »

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 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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

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… Read more »

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!

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
