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!

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 already a grandmother to baby Lizzie and Bridget’s son?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

In the latest promo for DAYS, look for Sonny to also lower the boom on Maggie with another deserved outburst and a homecoming for Will and Sonny.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Freddie and Camila? What do you hope happens to Maggie after her remembrance of the night of the crash is revealed? What will Xander (Paul Telfer) and Victor (John Aniston) to next and all of their plans seem to be unraveling? Comment below.  But first check out the scene from Friday between Camila and Freddie, and this week’s promo for DAYS>

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Lucas Gives Wiley To Michael; While Willow Learns the Devastating Truth

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, brought the highly-emotional moments viewers had been waiting for all-week long; following the year and a half reveal that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Brad (Parry Shen) engineered a baby switch with Willow’s (Katelyn MacMullen) dead baby, Wiley being passed off as Michael (Chad Duell) and Nelle’s newborn, Jonah, and Jonah being raised by Brad and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) as Wiley.  Now with the truth out, it was time for two of the heaviest beats of the story to be played out.

When Willow comes to at the hospital with Chase (Josh Swickard) by her side, needless to say she is dazed and freaking out that Nelle took Wiley.  Chase tells her he has some things to tell her and it’s not going to be easy to hear. Willow braces herself and then Chase tells her the story of the baby switch and how her baby died a SIDS death while at Brad and Lucas’ and then how the babies were switched.

In a heartbreaking and powerful performance from Katelyn MacMullen (yes, she is our pick for “Power Performance of the Week”), Willow struggles to come to grips with the truth and starts to realize all of Brad’s machinations, as she thinks back to herself how could she do that to her son … to trust him with Brad, only to have the little infant die.  The devastation played by MacMullen, whose Willow, now must realize her baby never lived the full and happy young life she thought, was gut-wrenching.

Meanwhile, in yet another top-notch performance, William deVry (Julian) showed the pain and the need to unburden himself as Julian talks to his sister. Ava (Maura West) and spills what happened.   He goes so far to admit to Ava that he knew what Brad had done. Ava cannot believe he did not go to Sonny (Maurice Benard) right away with this Intel, but Julian just could not do this to his son, Lucas and rip the baby from his arms.  Julian says he will face-off with Sonny and not leave town, if it comes to that.   Ava says they have to come up with a way to silence Brad … before Brad gives up Julian’s part in the whole baby cover-up.

And in yet another masterful performance, we have to give it up to Chloe Lanier.  Who can play Nelle and spin stories and the tears so well, that if you did not know this pathological liar you would think she is telling the truth. When in opposing holding cells at the PCPD, Nelle lays it on about Brad so that the guard can hear them. She blames Brad for being the instigator in the baby switch and taking advantage of her – a distraught new mother, confused and dazed on the route where the baby switch happened.  It works! Brad is moved to a different cell and thinks look very grim for him.  Nelle smiles through her crocodile tears!

Then, in what we all knew had to happen, and even so, was still as heartbreaking as ever; Lucas spends his final moments with Wiley as his father in the kitchen at the Corinthos’ along with Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Carly (Laura Wright).  Lucas starts to tell his mother and sister, all the things Wiley needs and likes, such as having a story read to him.  All of this brings the tears as they know Lucas has to give the child back to Michael; who has been robbed of a year and half as the baby’s rightful father.

Michael tells Lucas they will work this out, so Lucas remains a constant in Wiley’s life. He also tells Sonny and Sasha (Sofia Matteson) he feels so badly for Lucas, but they tell him to be happy for this chance to have the son he grieved for.   In the end, a tear-filled Lucas hands Wiley to Michael as everyone watches on in sadness for one father … and joy for the other.  Ryan Carnes was poignant in the scenes; as was Chad Duell.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michael Blasts Brad As The Truth About Wiley Comes Out

FINALLY! On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) memory is jogged just enough that he clearly remembers Brad’s (Parry Shen) shocking words before their car crash; where Brad confessed that Wiley was Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and Michael’s (Chad Duell) biological son.

At the Corinthos home, Lucas stands up and announces to Michael that Wiley is actually his believed to be dead son, Jonah. Carly’s (Laura Wright) mouth drops and then she takes over getting to the root of the truth of the baby switch.

Brad is cornered and left with no choice but to fess up. He explains how Wiley died when he was no longer breathing, and how he was driving with him, when he ended up on the route where Nelle left Michael to die in the car he was driving (Michael recalls this bit of Intel in a flashback).

Then, Brad explains how Nelle appeared with her newborn baby and claimed the whole thing was engineered by Nelle …  and how he was so upset and panicked, that he went along with her plan.

Michael lets Brad have it for all of his lies and machinations, and the pain it has inflicted on so many people for over a year and half.  How on earth could he do that? Carly also lays into him.

Meanwhile, Sasha (Sofia Matteson) has urgently called Chase (Josh Swickard), who leaves “Wiley” and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) behind, and heads to the Corinthos’ where he hears the whole sad truth about the baby switch.

With Chase gone, Nelle goes looking for “Wiley” who is with Willow, and the two get into a major throwdown catfight.  Nelle comes out the victor and goes to get her baby ready to leave town with her son.

So, what did you think of how the truth finally came out?  What did you think of Michael’s tirade on Brad? What do you think will happen next? Comment below.
