THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Liam Realizes Beth Is Alive As Scott Clifton Delivers Heart-Tugging Performance

Courtesy/CBS

Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful continued to weave the story that has had soap fans crying out for the truth to be told, so the characters involved can stop anguishing in pain, and for those who were part of the deception to get their comeuppance.

Liam (Scott Clifton) has been piecing together the puzzle that his daughter with Hope, baby Beth, could still be alive, and that of all things, it’s the baby girl that Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) adopted and is going by the name “Phoebe.”

At the cliff house, Douglas near Phoebe’s crib insists to Liam that Phoebe is actually Beth.  Douglas remarks: “Beth didn’t die. That’s your baby. That’s Beth.”  Liam, who is already suspect, asks Douglas who told him that and he said it was his dad, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson)!

When they go to the living room and Steffy is there, Liam begins to tell her what Douglas is intimating.  Steffy is confused, and just thinks it’s the musings of a little boy, but then Douglas tells Liam that his mommy, the late Caroline, always told him to tell him the truth.  Then, Steffy wants to know from Liam, where Douglas could have heard such a thing.  Liam says her brother, Thomas!

In that moment, Liam gets a call from the Obgyn in the Las Vegas hospital where Flo (Katrina Bowden) supposedly gave birth to “Phoebe.”  But the doctor tells Liam that there is no record of Flo being at the hospital, or of her treating her, or delivering her baby, because she was out of the country at the time of the baby’s birth.  A stunned Liam realizes that Flo lied, and recalls to Steffy how his brother, Wyatt (Darin Brooks), told him Flo acted like she’d never given birth.  In that moment it hits Liam like a ton of bricks; as he realizes that Phoebe was born in “Catalina”, where Hope supposedly lost their baby, Hope.

Next, in one of the most emotional moments that we dare anyone to not reach for the hankies, Liam runs into the other room to the baby’s crib realizing that Phoebe is Beth!  The baby says, “Dada!”  Liam responds sobbing and overjoyed and gut-wrenched all at the same time, “Yeah, I’m your Dada.”  In these moments, Scott Clifton, illustrated once again why he is a multi-Daytime Emmy winner, with an emotional performance that was not-to-be-missed.

All of this was juxtaposed with Thomas trying to lure his new wife, Hope into bed, and her trying to let-go of her past with Liam.  She swigs down champagne to try to do so, thanks to her new husband.  Will she finally succumb to Thomas and have sex with him?  Will Liam get to Hope in time with the news that their baby is alive?  Will Flo, who has told her mother Shauna (Denise Richards) that she wants to confess the truth of her deception, come clean to Liam and Hope? What will Steffy do when she realizes Phoebe is Beth? Many questions to be answered!

But first, watch the final moments of Wednesday’s episode when Liam is reunited with the daughter he thought had died.  Then, let us know what you thought of Scott Clifton’s performance and what you hope happens next via the comment section below.

That beautiful baby deserves an Emmy for saying “Da Da” at the most perfect moment possible. A GREAT scene!

That’s because her real dada probably stepoed in on cue behind the camera. Babies don’t act…they react.

More likely they have a recording of a baby saying dada and dubbed it in post production, just like they did when baby Beth said mama at Hope’s wedding. Shooting a scene is expensive and they are not going to wait around trying to get a baby to say mama or dada on cue

Scott Clifton delivers another emmy worthy performance. I have watched him thru the years starting at GH and then onto B&B, and he just keeps getting better and better.

He really does give such an amazing performance. I will be disappointed if he doesn’t get the Best Actor award again at the next Emmys.

Now that the truth has been told they need to inform Hope immediately before Thomas has sex with her knowing that Beth is alive! This story line should never have gone this long and if they don’t reveal Beth is alive by the end of the week I am never going to watch this program again which I have not watched in the past three months anyway because of the stupid storyline!!!!!!!

Can not wait until Thomas is safely put away where he can’t harm anyone else.I loved the previous Thomas, especially with Sally. Too bad they felt the need to destroy their relationsionship, along with Thomas’s character. I could never accept this guy again. I have been waiting for him to come back and kidnap baby Beth, in order to get Hope.Poor little Douglas. I keep reading that Ridge will turn out to be his real father. I hope this is true, especially for the boy’s sake, although I can’t see Brooke being too happy. Has everyone forgotten that she is… Read more »

THE BACHELORETTE: Clare’s Laser-Focus on Dale Pisses Off The Other Guys; ABC Exec Robert Mills Reveals The Turning Point When They Knew They Had To Replace Her

There was a lot to unpack on last night’s episode of ABC’s The Bachelorette, and it’s becoming harder to like Clare and Dale in this messy first part of the season where everyone is awaiting next week’s installment where things are previewed to really blow up.  Thus, setting the stage for Tayshia Adams to replace Clare as the new ‘Bachelorette’.

So here is what went down: Yosef finally could not take it anymore and had to get off of his chest what he felt about Clare … to her! In a moment alone with her, he told her how “immature” she was and how demeaning it was to the men to make them play “strip dodgeball” and that the way she was behaving is not something he wants his daughter to see.  He tells her there are a lot of  “red flags” surrounding her.

Yosef then launched into: “I’m ashamed to be associated with you!” Adding, “I can’t believe I sacrificed so much to be here just for this tasteless and classless display.”   Clare fired-back, “I never thought I would have to repeat these words to another man. I would never want my children to have a father like you. Get out of here.”   Of course, Clare was referencing her tirade launched on Juan Pablo during his season of The Bachelor in which she was the runner-up.  Back to this season, an angry Yosef gets in the limo and it is driven away, and thus he is never to be heard from again in the episode.

But lo and behold, who should come to crying Clare’s rescue? Yup, you got it, Dale, the man she is enamored with, holding her in his arms and consoling her.  Later, Clare in a testimonial tells the cameras she is falling in love with him.

Fast forward – after cancelling the group date Clare brought the following men outside of her place for a cocktail party: Jason, Jay, Eazy, Chasen, Blake, Ed and Riley … and Dale! But then Dale tells the guys he wants a few moments alone with Clare and will be back.  Next thing you know Clare and Dale are gone for an hour because they are making out at Clare’s place, until Eazy finds them together, at that point, pretending that they were just hanging out.  Now all the guys are pissed at Dale.

Next, Clare goes on a one-one-one date with Zac J. and it blows up in his face, when he goes in for a kiss and grabs her by the neck and the arm and she doesn’t like it.  Later, Chris Harrison tells him that Clare will not be joining him for dinner, so he is sent packing and limo’s off the show too!

Then, we come to the ‘Roast’ where the guys are going to learn how to do some comedic roasting of one another by comedian Margaret Cho, who came to the La Quinta for a guest appearance on the reality-dating show.. But instead of throwing zingers at each other, Dale was the epicenter of the remarks, especially from Bennett, who really laid in to him as witnessed by Clare and Margaret who thought it was very hostile, while the other men really enjoyed it.

Later, during a cocktail party where all the guys were hoping for one-one-one time with Clare, she spent the entire party individually talking to them about Dale, and what Dale was saying about her in the house, and about the hostility shown to him by all the guys,  Then, the guys were over her!   After the suitors did not “give her what she needed,” Clare told a producer, “I’m not going to sit there (after they) dished on my fiance; so hard!” What?

In addition, after the roast group date that went south,  Clare during a testimonial decided to give herself the rose instead of any of her suitors! On former ‘Bachelor’s” Nick Viall’s podcast, ‘The Viall Files’, Robert Mills, ABC’s Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, noted that was the turning point for the production, citing: “When she didn’t give out that rose and she just gave it to herself, that was it.  That was really it, when we started making the call (to replace her).”

At the end of the episode, we were given a sneak peek to next week which will air on a special night due to the presidential election. The Bachelorette returns on Thursday November 5th.  In the preview, Tayshia is seen coming out of a pool in a bikini, as Clare’s time as the ‘Bachelorette’ is quickly coming to an end.

What did you think of the all the drama of last night’s episode of The Bachelorette? Comment below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Continues On After Halloween Week, Kaitlyn Bristowe Reacts To Carrie Ann’s Comment That She ‘Gave Up’

It was a fright night full of competition on the ballroom floor, as the celebrity contestants and their partners performed for the judges as notable villains.

Selling Sunset’s and former soap star, Chrishell Stause remained in the competition with pro partner, Gleb Savchenko after dancing the Paso Doble to VonLichten’s version of the Genesis classic “In The Air Tonight”.  Inspired by Maleficent, the duo received solid marks with judge Carrie Ann Inaba calling it, “storytelling at its finest.” Judge Bruno added,” Your focus, your intention, your purpose were absolutely spot-on,”  The pair scored 26 out of 30 and was revealed to be “safe” at the end of the night’s voting and scores.

Meanwhile, one of the frontrunners, ‘The Bachelorette’s” Kaitlyn Bristowe received some heavy criticism from the judges after dancing with her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev to Rihanna’s “Disturbia”.  In her Cruella de Vil outfit and dancing the Paso Doble, the duo received their lowest score since earlier in the competition which totaled a 24 out of 30.

Carrie Ann Inaba told Kaitlyn that she felt like she “gave up” during the performance and that she “felt her spirit drop”.  Following the night of competition, Bristowe who was saved for another week, talked with ET were she disagreed with Inaba stating, “It’s not in my character to give up. If anything, I might get tired at one point, but I’m pushing through as hard as I possibly can. I would never give up.”

The first perfect score of the season (3o out of 30)went to Nev Shulman and pro partner Jenna Johnson’s rendition of the Paso Doble dancing to the Swan Lake Remix by District 78 with costumes inspired by the movie Black Swan.

During the results portion of the show, Monica Aldana and Val Chmerkovskiy were sent home by a 2 to 1 vote from the judges over Jeannie Mai and Brandon Armstrong.

Watch Chrishell’s and then Kaitlyn’s performances below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Gets Creepy As The Hope Mannequin Talks To Him

Leave it to the good folks over at The Bold and the Beautiful to incorporate a play on their headline-grabbing mannequin use during Covid-19.  B&B was the first American television show back in production during the pandemic, and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, told the media how they were using mannequins in several scenes in place of real actors when it comes to some intimate moments between characters.  Since the time, the show has also brought in real-life partners of their cast members when needed for a make-out scene, etc.

And that brings us to Thursday’s shocking reveal on the CBS daytime drama series, when Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), who seemed to be a more centered-version of himself of late, takes home with him the Hope for the Future shipment and opens the box.  He is for a surprise when inside the box is a lifelike mannequin of Hope  (Annika Noelle).  And from there, things spiral out of control, as viewers learned Thomas’ obsession with Hope is alive and well.

Thomas just can’t believe how life-like the mannequin of Hope is – saying to himself, “No wonder they use it for the Hope for the Future line.”  But then  after he takes the mannequin out of the box, it starts talking to him … in Hope’s voice, begging him to allow her to stay there with him and not put her back in the boX saying, .Please don’t lock me up in that box again.   I’ve been away from you too long… I know you want to be with me too.”  Then, Thomas who is having a very hard time between reality and this apparent hallucination shouts: “You’re not real!” What’s wrong with me?”

 

Perhaps Liam said it best earlier in the episode when Hope was speaking about Thomas to him, when he uttered.“I get creeped out just thinking about Thomas.”

Watch some of the Hope-mannequin action with Thomas below. Then weigh-in, what do you think of this plot twist? Share your thoughts in the comment section,
