THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope To Steffy, “I’m Taking My Daughter & Don’t You Dare Try To Stop Me”

Photo: JPI

The next key revelation of the baby switch; that devastated the lives of Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton), but gave Steffy a baby to raise and a sister to Kelly, began to unravel on Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

Now that Hope knows for sure that Beth is alive and has been living as “Phoebe” under Steffy’s care, it was time to lower the boom on Steffy.  So, at the cliff house, a distraught Steffy refuses at first to believe the truth.  She says, “That baby can’t be Beth … she’s Phoebe!”

Liam (Scott Clifton) tells Steffy that he and Hope can do whatever genetic testing is necessary to prove it to her, but that it will indeed come back and prove that they are the biological parents to the little girl.   As they explain the events that led to Steffy ‘adopting’ Beth, she learns from Liam and Hope that Dr. Buckingham sold their baby for a gambling debt and how Steffy’s mom, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) was unknowingly buying their baby to give to her.

Hope says she cannot wait to take little Beth home, and how grateful she is that Steffy took such good care of her daughter all of these months.  Then, Steffy blurts out: “You’re not taking my daughter from the only home she’s ever known.  I’m her mommy.”  Steffy tries to use the reasoning that if Hope takes Phoebe away, she will be ripping her from the only home she has ever known.  Hope. who is becoming more frustrated and upset with Steffy says, “Her name is Beth.”  She then informs Steffy that she and Liam will let her help out with the transition.

Steffy starts to have a meltdown as she realizes that the little girl is really Beth.  Next, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive on the scene.  Steffy defies Hope and tells her again, “There’s no way you’re taking my daughter home.”  Brooke reminds her and everyone in the room that there was nothing legal about the adoption, while Ridge tries to make everyone understand how Steffy is also blindsided.  Steffy continues on how she is the only mother Beth knows, and the cliff house as her home.

A steadfast Hope tells Steffy in no uncertain terms she is now with her, her real mother, who she should have been with since the day she was born.  Hope tells Steffy again how grateful she is to her … but she firmly tells her, “I’m taking my daughter, and don’t you dare try to stop me.”  We fade to black.

Last week and this week, the cast involved in the baby switch storylime from: Annika Noelle, Scott Clifton, to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood have delivered strong and memorable performances as the payoff of this story continues.

So, do you hope Hope just walks right on out with Beth?  Do you think Steffy will go so far as to fight for custody? Take off with Beth and runaway? Share your thoughts om what you think will happen next via the comment section below.

Add baby Beth to a “strong” performance. This beautiful little girl has certainly been wowing me.

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas
Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

You are right ‼️‼️

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas
Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

Each character reminds me of the following
Douglas, truth, can relate to everyone but Thomas,Brings life and love to his family
Thomas, risk taker, all about self
Brooke, protector of the family, she and Steffy is on of the wave link , Drama Queen
Steffy, Great,able to play any part given her, she soo good , she causes the audience to feel what she feels, even when she wrong.
Liam Great Actor, plays his part well, Stregth, Man willing to fight for his family.
Hope Dreamer, She is very submissive, but when it comes to Beth she a lion.
Beth , second chance at family, she has a beautiful smile, and don’t care who holds or play with her.
This soap is the best day time story yet‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
Reg ,blind sighted by family and children.
The hold cast is Great ‼️‼️

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas
Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

8/14 Liam need not defend himself, he should be happy, the fans see it as real life, that mean he’s a great actor.
Flo and Zoe role play as two people pleasers, keeps them in trouble, but deep within they can’t understand why so much trouble, they realize after the fact they were used, by being push by Laim they had no other choice but to tell the truth, that’s why Laim’s fans are angry with him, many people in the real world are caught in that web.
That’s why I said this soap is the greatest.
Congrats ‼️‼️‼️

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

I used to look at this soap a couple of years ago, Quinsrole play then was one of Flo’s, betrayal, o

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas
Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

The story line has moved to another level, Mystery, Happiness, Surprises , Betrayal, Family, Defeated, Family secrets,
Bill and Katie rekindling their love.
Thomas madness, that brings the worst out of the ones that love him, Steffy and Ridge , and the son who can’t understand why he’s angry with him.
The legal matter will tear them up again, but Douglas and Beth will remind them of the love of family,
Keep Thomas in the story, He keeps drama alive
Laim dad Bill should be active in the legal matters, he and his son are go gets,
Brooke has had her share of lost love, betrayal, this part does her well.
Congrats ‼️‼️

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas
Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

GREAT JOB, YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS‼️‼️
ALL ACTORS NOW ARE SERIOUS AND MOVING TO ANOTHER LEVEL‼️

I’m sick and tired, how they treat steffy. I’m sooo done with brooke and hope and weak ass Liam. The writers should give steffy a new love because Liam is a piece of crap

Donna Morgan-Danner

They should find Steffy a new man and storyline.

Verta

I don’t feel that they are treating Steffy badly. Is it ok that Ridge seem to be caring only for his daughter and Brooke can’t care deeply for hers? Some one has to suffer now just as the suffering took place when Hope thought her baby died and Steffy gained another child. Lets just say nothings fair. This shouldn’t have happened to either of them. Its a story, but stories immitates real life happenings.

Mrs Rosemary Nicholas

Betty Walker

Totally agree 100%. Why do they always have to screw over Stephanie? I think Stephanie should keep the baby and Hope should move back to Paris. And, stupid Liam he’s going to continue to go back and forth with Hope and Steffy just like Ridge did with Brooke and Taylor.

Lolita
Lolita

Hell to the nooo. Steffy has screwed Hope over by manipulating Liam for years. And yes Liam is weak and Hope is a damn push over. But, bottom line its thier baby and not Stephanie’s.

CynthiaWeldon Perpall
CynthiaWeldon Perpall

No way I Know these are acting,but Steffy always gets what she wants, and Hope suffering the nerve to leave her baby is crazy , leave the Logon alone the always getting hurt.

Shari A Bragdon
Shari A Bragdon

How they treat steffy? Seriously? Hope has thanked her again and again. She told steffy she could help with the baby instead of kicking her to the curb. Hope did not give that baby up voluntarily. She has a right to her daughter.

KeepItReal
KeepItReal

Amen!

Barbara
Barbara

I agree Shari… Steffi would take her baby as soon as she found out that someone stole her baby and sold her baby. Steffi would not give a hook about Hope if the roles were reversed. I have watched this soap from day one almost. Steffi has always acted as though so is entitled to whatever or whoever she wants no matter someone else’s feelings .

Shari Warren

Amen to that!!

True Stuffy is always the one getting hurt.Hope and her mom are always up to something.

Linda

I so much disagree with you. They have tried to pamper Steffi to a point after that she needed a big dose of reality. she should have been happy that they found out that Beth is alive. Steffi is a mother she should put herself in hopes shoes especially after seeing all the trauma and pain and suffering hope went through unnecessarily all that time. It would have been really difficult for steffy if that baby born to some stranger from the hospital then she would never see baby Beth again

KeepItReal
KeepItReal

You are ABSOLUTELY right Linda!

Treva

I agree with you that Liam is weak minded and easy manipulated BUT let’s not forget that Steffy is NO angel and the way her and Bill schemed for her to win Liam from the very start was some bullshyt. I feel for Steffy getting attached but Hope was made to believe her daughter was dead and she not. Steffy is not winning this one and is out her monkey ass mind if she think she gonna keep that baby

KeepItReal
KeepItReal

I’m not understanding what some individuals are having so much sympathy for POOR Steffy. You are ABSOLUTELY right about Steffy. She has never been an
ANGEL. TRULY, Hope is the victim here. I was so happy when Hope finally stood up for herself on the Friday episode.

An Merch

Totally true! Many ignore the FACT that Liam was with Hope when Steffy first decided she wanted him. Just as Taylor, the doormat/psychologist was “treating” Ridge after the death of the first Caroline Spencer. The Caroline Spencer whose dying request to Brooke was to please make a life with Ridge. Caroline knew Brooke that way and trusted Taylor only as a psychologist. YES, Taylor & Steffy, like mother, like daughter.

Kathy Cavitt

I am too, PEOPLE don’t know that Hope was the black sheep and steffy had it easy all of her life,so let hope have her baby back with no problems, if she was in Hope place she would want her baby back.

FemaleFan
FemaleFan

First off, they all know the legal ramifications of the adoption, I applaud Hope that she finally is getting a backbone n is standing up for herself n her daughter (now get that so called marriage to Thomas annulled n move ahead with Liam). Steady will cry n her heart will ache but we all thought she jumped too fast into an adoption when she should of been spring on baby Kelly, but she should thank her stars ‘Phoebee’ is close by n she can watch her feom afar as she grows. And Kelly n Beth are half sisters n they will always be intertwined in each others lives. As I am sure tears fall for both these women (n Liam) we would be crazy in our own minds n world if this would ever happen to us. And trust me it does happen in real life. One more thing….I hope that Hope n Liam wind up with Thomas, also. He loves Hope n helped to get Beth back ( but Steffy, Ridge n even Taylor are blood relatives, but would Steffy want him after this, as a constant reminder??)…

Remember Hope is the daughter of Brooke and Deacon Sharpe. After all the catfights and face slappings Brooke had with Stephanie over the years, some of it was bound to run through Hopes blood

Just as it hurt for Hope when Steffy notice the bond between Hope and Beth and took away for months to bond. It did not work. I just want Hope to bond with her baby girl, Beth,while Steffy bonds with Kelly and they can give Steffy a new man just for her please.

It’s about time Hope and Liam have a happy ending. If you’ve been watching the Bold and the beautiful from the beginning you would know something always gets in the middle of there relationship and they end up apart. It’s there time to reunite and be a family . Steffy needs a new man in her life.

Debbie
Debbie

I am so happy the truth is finally coming out!! I actually stopped watching the show because I couldn’t stand what the writers were doing to Hope. You could see this coming at the very beginning and it was so frustrating to see another baby switch storyline ☹️ I really hope that Liam and Hope find out that Liam was drugged which is why he slept with Steffy. And I really really hope that Steffy doesn’t all of a sudden find out she’s pregnant. If so I will stop watching this show permanently!!

Angelina Ruz
Angelina Ruz

I agree, if that were to happen , Steffy pregnant with Liams baby I wouldnt watch it anymore, that would be the end for me.

I think Hope has gone through enough!!! Don’t make her get out the claws and fight for Beth, because she will. Thomas also should have to pay!!! Ridge is concentrating on everyone BUT him!!

Hope should most certainly have Beth back asap. She deserves her daughter for sure. I agree that the baby Beths deserve awards as well especially the baby Beth who shouts mommy and daddy right on time.

Hope should take us home end of discussion I also understand Steffi is going to be devastated the same as Hope was when she lost her when she thought she lost baby Beth and I do believe in time Hope will want to raise Beth and Kelly with Steffy as one big happy family both Steffi and Hope have been in a lot of pain because of Zoe’s dad and because of hopes cousin for perpetuating the LIE all this time not to mention Thomas role in it and he is the actor who plays Thomas he’s very good at playing a very creepy guy. I really hope that I Hope and Steffy can come together together for the sake of their families and not be like their mothers Brooke and Taylor

soapqueenforever
soapqueenforever

FINALLY!!!! It’s wonderful to see Hope finally getting her strength back and fighting for what is rightfully hers. I knew that deep down she had fighting streak in her, especially now that she is a mama protecting her baby. And that little baby is absolutely adorable.That scene was well played by all the actors involved. On a side note, I was a fan of Wyatt and Sally. I thought they were a perfect match, until he came crying back to her with his tail between his legs. He was looking for an excuse to dump Sally the minute he found out he and Flo were not brother and sister, and Flo started parading around the Forrester mansion half nude in her little bikinis. I hope they
don’t turn Sally to mush and she takes him back. She was always a strong fighter. Let stand up for herself like her namesake always did. And last, but certainly not least, the actor playing Douglas is not onlY completely adorable, but he is one hell of an actor. I can”t wait to see how this is going to play out.

Bessie McGee
Bessie McGee

I am glad the truth is out. It has gone on too long. I want all ofbthe ones involved in this scheme to be punished, starting with Flo. Sander should not be punished. At least he tried until Thomas threatened him. Make Thomas pay for the young lady’s death. She was on her way to tell Hope when Thomas made her wreck.

Estella Gonzalez
Estella Gonzalez

Hope should walk away with her daughter. Steffy needs to accept that Baby Beth belongs with her mother – Hope. The adoption is not legal and if Steffy wants the best for “the children” Beth, she will admit the best is for Beth to be with her real mom.

Juanita Moreno

They need to do a DNA to check if it really Beth. Liam may not be the Beth father.WHY does Hope get everything.

Lolita

Please don’t suggest this to the writers. If the results come back negative for Liam as the bio dad, I am out.

Brandy Alexander

I hope that’s what they do, turns out Beth isn’t Liam’s daughter. That would be an awesome twist. But then, I also want Steffy to tell Liam to take a hike. Bring back Leo for Steffy. He is gorgeous, and all about her. She deserves a man who only has eyes for her!

OMGosh, after reading some of these, it seems that I’m the only one who’s tired of Hopeless Hope and Lousy Liam? Take your baby and be happy, perhaps in a soap opera far far away!

This storyline has been dragged MUCH too long!Steffy IS NOT the victim, but HOPE! Sure, Steffy had formed an attachment to Baby Beth! But, it shouldn’t be to the degree that she think that she should keep Hope’s Baby and continue to raise her as her own! She has flip the script! Steffy should not want to deprive Hope of another minute being separated from her baby. They both love this baby, but Steffy is going to far in trying to hold on to Hope’s Baby. PLEASE! Do not write a custody battle in this storyline. It doesn’t matter whether or not Steffy’s home is
the only home Baby Beth know and she’s the only Mother the Baby know. Baby Beth is so very young and it’s not going to take very much for her to be reunited with her biological Mother, Hope!

Iam enjoying the exposer of Thomas,and Hope finally receiving news of her supposed to be dead child.
Douglas is a Jewel, the part he’s play , suits his personality. I can’t wait to see Douglas, relate to Steffy on another level as care giver. I am hoping she’d except him while Thomas is away, with a wild imagination , plotting his next move.
Emma played a short part on the story, hoping she come back as a twin sister, she capture the hearts of the cast and viewers.
In closing the entire cast is great. I am one who don’t watch day times stories, ,I have retired, watch this particular series, and love it, can’t wait until Monday

Bonnie

I see a bitter relationship coming between Hope and Steffy..Hope is already kind of nasty about taking Beth.but this is not over..Steffy might be pregnant again with Liam’s third child..Liam’s always in the middle of these two..the writers need to find him a wife and leave Hope and Steffy go..see the kids..but move on..he’s got himself into too much on this show..lol

KeepItReal
KeepItReal

I would also like to iterate that it’s not like Steffy is going to be left “BABYLESS!” She has Baby Kelly and she need to move on. The storyline need to bring another man on board for Steffy. Her personality is MUCH to strong for Liam. Wyatt is EVEN a better match for her than Liam. I’m not saying that Steffy and Wyatt should be reunited, but Liam is just not a match for Steffy. He is not and have NEVER been! Hope and Liam is SO suited for each other. They have the same personality!

Sandra Uribe

Regardless of how you feel about Steffy she is totally innocent in this situation. I’m glad Hope knows the truth but i also feel for Steffy. Liam is sooo weak i would love it if Beth wasn’t his child. Maybe hope was pregnant before she cane back home and didn’t know it. Remember Beth did come early.

Well stephy have a child because of her hope lost her first child with liam.stephy took Liam away from hope.when she discovered Liam is bills son. Don’t forget hope fought with bill to accept Liam as his son.rightfully hope should keep Beth. Look how the baby sticks with hope and Liam she looks at stephy like on intruder. Liam and hope should settle down now. And with Douglas.

LIS

What mother would hand over a child under these circumstances without demanding a paternity test?!!! Why isn’t Liam and Hope asking for one to make sure the child is theirs. Silly cliched story.

Susan flannery was the heart of this show and DC/ sally spectra multiple storylines even for a thirty minute soap going on the show is just not the same I hope this story is behind them and let Hope have that god awful Liam ! Give Steffy a new man but first put all of them on the back burner for at least three months . Burning question why is VI coming is their a twist is the baby not really Beth ? That would be a first and something interesting and hey Steffy burn the dam picture !

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Will Franco Wake Up As Drew & Become The Next Victim Of Mind-Mapping?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, picked up from the major plot twist; and unfortunately for Franco (Roger Howarth), even with the arrival of Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) to save the day; according to Dr. Cabot (Time Winters), the mind-mapping transfer could not be stopped.  And as the men were all bantering and arguing about, the download into Franco’s brain was fully completed.  Then, Cabot tells Drew that when Franco wakes up, it will be with the memories of Drew dating back to 2012.

Now the questions are, did the procedure work?  Will Franco awake from this nightmare with the history and personality of Drew, or could Dr, Cabot’s experiment be a bust on him?  Next. Liz (Rebecca Herbst) and Chase (Josh Swickard) show-up.  Liz is heartsick to begin to learn what happened in the warehouse to her son, Cameron (William Lipton) and her husband.  Chase arrests Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but he also goes to GH to get medical attention for his wounds from the fight with Drew and Curtis.

Courtesy/ABC

Once, Franco is taken to General Hospital still unconscious, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) is on the medical case and gets him a neurological work-up.  Lucas then has to stitch up Shiloh, who continually throws jabs at the good doc about Wiley.   Then in a bit of foreshadowing, Dr. Cabot tells Drew, that he will thank him once Franco wakes up with Drew’s memories.  Does that mean that Drew could have done some horrible things in his past … or that Shiloh will leave Drew alone, because what he needs is inside Franco’s brain now? Drew hopes his memories stay buried.

In heartbreaking scenes, and in touching performances from William Lipton and Rebecca Herbst; as well as Billy Miller, Cam tells his mother about Franco’s last words to him to,  ‘Tell your mom I love her and that I’ll be back”.   Liz learns how Franco protected her son, and traded places with him. Next, Liz sits by an unconscious Franco, and in tears, thanks him for keeping Cameron safe, but laments that it would be a far less wonderful world without Franco in it, and begs him to come back to her, and what a hero he is for what he did saving her son.

Courtesy/ABC

In addition, Cameron gives Drew a key piece of Intel he learned during his kidnapping and while the mind-mapping procedure on Franco was taking place.  Shiloh is looking for a specific memory that would allow him to disappear, and that is why he is so determined to get inside Drew’s head from back in the day, by any means possible!  When Cameron sees Shiloh being taken away by Chase, he runs at him but is stopped by Drew. Cameron threatens a snide and laughing Shiloh that he will, “Make him pay.”  Uh-oh!  Is a murder mystery on the way, too?  Drew tries to talk down Cameron.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco To Cameron, “Tell Your Mom I Love Her … And Tell Her I’ll Be Back”

In a stunning turn, which featured great performances by Roger Howarth (Franco) and William Lipton (Cameron), Franco demands to know what’s going on when he walks in on a frightening moment ..  his stepson Cameron has been drugged, and is being held captive by Dr. Cabot (Time Winters) and Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) … and he realizes after Cameron speaks the words “flash drive” and “Drew”, that the evil duo wants to use Cameron as the vehicle to implant Drew’s memories!

As Dr. Cabot goes on and on to Shiloh that his experiment should only be performed on an adult, not a child, Shiloh doesn’t give a rat’s ass insisting that Cabot start the procedure on Cameron immediately.  Throughout, Shiloh has a gun drawn on Franco and will use it on anyone else in the warehouse who does not go along with his twisted plot.

Meanwhile, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Drew (Billy Miller) are trying to locate Shiloh and Dr. Cabot realizing that he could be trying to implant Drew’s memories into an unsuspecting or unwillingly victim.  With the help of Lucy (Lynn Herring), who has been dealing in real estate, they all come to the conclusion of where the men could be hiding out!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco To Cameron, "Tell Your Mom I Love Her ... And Tell Her I'll Be Back"

At General Hospital, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is becoming frantic, because she had not heard from Cameron and she can’t reach Franco by his cell, either.  But now back at the warehouse, Franco’s cell has been confiscated by Shiloh.  Sam (Kelly Monaco) is blaming herself for what has happened, and Liz asks Jason (Steve Burton) for help and Jason puts Spinelli on the case.

Back at the warehouse, Franco tells Shiloh to use him instead for the mind-mapping, and to free Cameron.  Franco goes on to say that he has done some apprehensible things in his life, and he had a tortured childhood, and would like to forget about all of that, and convinces Shiloh and Dr, Cabot that he is their best chance at success.   But Franco also had a brain tumor which was removed and had prior brain damage, so could this not work at all?

After his plea, Shiloh finally agrees and unties Cameron and has Franco prepped and strapped to the chair.  However, in the exchange, Cameron is now chained to the fence near the door crying to not let this happen to his stepdad.

In a emotional moment, Franco tells Cameron how much he has enjoyed getting to know him and what a great kid he is.  He then tells Cameron to calm down, because he has something very important to tell him.  Franco says, “Tell your mother I love her, and tell her that I’ll be back.” Next thing you know, Franco is injected to start the mind-mapping procedure.
