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 »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Tells The Men To Get Out If They Are There for the Wrong Reasons

So, let’s be real here.  Do you seriously think all of the men vying for Katie’s heart on this season’s The Bachelorette, or going onto a dating-reality show, are all just looking for love without realizing the fame, attention and instagram followers that will accrue due to their appearance on the long-running competition series? With that said, some men profess they are on the show searching for love, while others are on the show are there for “the wrong reasons” – i.e. searching for fame.

Katie Thurston had her fill of the “wrong reasons’ on Monday night’s episode of the series, after contestants Aaron and Cody went at it in a mud-wrestling match that turned dirtier than just rolling around in the muck.  Later, Katie pulls Aaron aside where he he reveals that he knows Cody from San Diego, and know he has a questionable character, especially from his social media postings.  Aaron believes Cody just came on to the show to become famous. When Katie then confronts Cody about this, he is pretty unfazed and matter-of-fact and emotionless.  Next up, she boots Cody from the show.

After Katie hits an emotional bottom, she gathers herself together for the evening’s cocktail chats and smooches, and as she is feeling good again, Karl decides to confuse her and tells her that their may be other men in the house who are there for the “wrong reasons”. That prompts Katie to have her episode ‘drop the mic’ moment where she tells the guys that ,”if they are not here for the right reasons to get the ‘f***” out!”  The men are pissed at Karl for stirring things up with nothing to back up his accusations with and Katie is left (as we fade to black) in a puddle of tears.

BUT, before that there were some other watershed moments within the episode. During her one-on-one ‘wilderness date’ with Greg, Katie opened up to him about the death of her father.  Later, when they sat down for their evening date, Greg revealed his father died, and then it was his turn to be overcome, revealing how difficult it was to leave his mom, who was still grieving to come be a part of The Bachelorette season, and to vie for Katie’s heart. But these two clearly have a very strong connection leading people to wonder if Greg will get the final rose.

Earlier, during the awkward – “prove to Katie how sexy you are in bed, or how you will take care of her in bed” – or something like that, Mike the virgin cried during his testimonials as to how he would get up in front of her and the other men with his presentation when he is a virgin.  Mike decided to go with the honest approach and wrote a poem for Katie about how he would love her while basically admitting he was a virgin, as she sat on the bed on the stage with him. He won the award in the sex competition.  OK? OK!

So, who do you think is the frontrunner for Katie’s heart? Is anyone on this show there to truly fall-in-love and get engaged??? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Leave it to a beloved MVP of General Hospital, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), to pull out all the stops in the culmination of Maxie’s storyline with Peter August (Wes Ramsey), and that’s what viewers witnessed this week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Maxie manipulated the manipulator during a stunning sequence of events.  In story, while recovering at General Hospital after giving birth in the woods, Maxie lays it on thick to ensure that Peter never gets near their baby Louise – who is actually being passed off as “Bailey”, the baby of Valentin and Brook Lynn – not kidnapped by the naughty nurse, Chloe (Kimberly J. Brown).  But in Maxie’s chain of events to Peter, she tears into him and tells him that Chloe kidnapped her, drugged her to induce labor, and took off with Louise.  Peter is stunned.  Maxie goes on to explain that Chloe said she was working for him and that Peter planned to take her and the baby out of the country,

At that point, Maxie plays on Peter’s psyche, telling him she wishes the dark side of him would return to get the nurse for what she did.  It is then she gets Peter right where she wants him when he admits that Chloe isn’t the nurse’s real name.   Maxie then turns up the heat on Peter and reveals that Chloe must have been fed information on her from Peter! And that the only explanation is that Peter is horrible person.

Then, Maxie tells Peter their baby is gone, it’s all his fault, and he hopes he is terrified, and that she is repulsed by him, especially every time he touched her.  She then confronts him about killing Drew Cain, Franco Baldwin and anyone else who got in his way.   He says it’s not too late for them, and that he did it all for her and Louise.

Boom! Maxie has got Peter’s confession taped on a file on her phone which she immediately sends to Mac.  That sends Peter running and well, we know, or we think we know where that led, to Peter’s fall down the stairs thanks to Finn (Michael Easton).

Later when Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) arrives at GH with baby Louise, she sits outside Maxie’s room as emotional Maxie sees her daughter in the arms of another mother, and is heartbroken that she can’t be with the little girl she just gave birth to.

Over the last three episodes. Kirsten Storms has reminded us all of why she has the innate ability and combination to play strong, determined, vulnerable, loveable and devastated with such ease.  Storms gave us a bravura performance to remember, slicing Peter’s charade in half, playing beats of Maxie’s fictionalized account, with Maxie’s real account of life with Henrik Faison aka Peter.   For all of this and more, Michael Fairman TV names Kirsten Storms work, The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Kirsten in the pivotal scenes with Maxie and Peter, and the emotional fallout that followed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, check out some moments from Maxie giving Peter a piece of her mind!
