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!

For fans of the show, Taylor has been absent for many key story points since 2019 including: her son Thomas’ brain surgery and the recent marriage of her daughter, Steffy’s marriage to Finn, plus the birth of her grandson and more.

In a tweet following the casting news being announced, Allen shared on her Twitter account: “This is gonna be a fun one! Very excited to step into this iconic role and be back on Daytime after 25 years! … Omg T-W-E-N-T-Y F-I-V-E years?”

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
