THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Passion Ignites for Carter and Quinn

Photos: JPI

CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful has been known over the years to surprise viewers with a cliffhanger they may have not seen coming, or a moment within an episode, that was unexpected.  Now, while often on daily episodes of soaps there is repetition in scenes and stories, Friday’s show surprised many!

In story, Quinn (Rena Sofer) went over to see Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) to try to get him to forgive Zoe (Kiara Barnes) and give her another chance, only things don’t go as planned.

Carter tells Quinn when he sees Zoe he wants to make love to her, and that it’s been a long time since he has had sex. Quinn can relate informing Carter expressing that it’s been a really long time since she felt wanted by Eric (John McCook).  She says that it feel like “We’re strangers”, and that when she reaches out to touch Eric he actually recoils.  Quinn adds that she is starving for affection, and that sometimes she just wants to be held.  Carter adds that he does not want to chase anyone, especially if she has feelings for someone else.  He wants someone who truly wants him.

As the seduction between Quinn and Carter begins, she recalls how Eric’s love gave her confidence and made her feel sexy and how she just wants to feel that again.  Next, Carter moves in close to Quinn, which prompts her to whisper, “We can’t”, but oh they do! Cue the music, the making love montage, the candles, the sofa, the camera cuts back and forth, and voila, Carter and Quinn make love.

This is a great twist for B&B, which will clearly give Lawrence Saint-Victor and Rena Sofer a secret to play.

Now the question becomes, will Carter and Quinn be the next hot couple on the show, or will this just be one night of bliss? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Hey Violet. You know it! Can we say unemployment for both of them and being ousted from the Forrester mansion for Quinn!

After the heat was flying off of these two when Quinn went to Carter’s apartment with him half dressed, it was only a matter of time before this happened!!

Instead, Carter might want to find out if that “Hope” mannequin is still available. 🙂

I don’t quite get what you meant about the manniquin, but I think even the manniquin would be preferable to Quinn. I just have never liked the character, after what she did to Liam, kidnapping him, etc, messing with Deacon and Ridge, siccing her friend on Ridge her step-son, just to hurt Brooke and now having sex with Carter, family friend and loyal employee, that really shows how much she loves Eric. Can’t blame her in one respect, he is a hunk, even in these old lady’s eyes.

Hi Violet: I certainly understand your reasons for disdain of Quinn and her misdeeds. I’m just being facetious with my original comment, but you agree with me! Cheers, Friend!

A few things…
1. I think that Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) and Rena Sofer (Quinn) have wonderful on-screen chemistry together. Just saying…
2. That wishy-washy Zoe is way too WHINY AND ANNOYING!!!!!
3. Eric listens to Brooke WAY TOO MUCH…PERIOD!!!!!

CARTER AND QUINN 2021!!!!!

Later.

Can not make sense of your rambling. Forgive me if you have a language barrier or are high on something.
I don’t understand how the moderator could o.k this.

I never thought I’d be happy a rumour about Sheila coming back might be true, but then again if she can get rid of Quinn, it might be worth it. Hopefully, she can work her magic and I think it would be like the fox and the hen.

Can someone explain the ridiculous outfits that they are all wearing???
I lived in LA for almost two decades and nobody wore anything like these.
And especially for a show that is based on fashion and design.
It’s ridiculous!

You know, I’ve thought the same thing many times, especially Flo before she joined Forrester. Gosh, what a mess she was.

It makes it very difficult to watch. They have such a platform for chic attire yet they continue to put them in awful outfits – so much so that I can’t even watch the dialogue.

Zoe with the pink dragon dress
Her sister with the gaudy earrings and cheese skirts
Brooke in the white with that lame gold belt

I don’t know how the actors actually allow them to be dressed in the horrific outfits.

Hi Margherita
Again I have to reply. The clothes these gals are wearing on this show are not to be believed. The older women, not too bad but the younger ones like Paris, Zoe and especially Flo are horrible. I hope they are made to wear them, because they wouldn’t pay me enough.

I KNOW Violet!!! They are so DISTRACTING!!! All of the patterns being on the same screen at the same time. It makes me dizzy!!! Maybe if one of the young cast wore something a bit more edgy (I mean crazy) then I could handle it, but when they are all in the same scene, it makes me nauseous (literally and figuratively).

Interesting to see the writers putting Carter and Quinn together. I am wondering how this sort of relationship plays out in the greater US. Carter is closer to the age of Quinn’s son. I know on daytime TV this might be more common, but I would think usually with the older man/younger woman combination, as with Eric and Quinn.

Oh, and then there’s the skin color difference. There’s that too.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: What Did You Think of Steffy and Finn’s Highly-Anticipated Reunion?

On Monday and Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) finally was reunited with her husband, Finn (Tanner Novlan).

As the story goes, Steffy has fallen into a deep depression and took off to Monaco.  Set against the backdrop of Monte Carlo, a very much alive Finn searches for her. After some false starts, they see each other for the first time outside a cathedral.  What followed was sweeping epic music, hugs, kisses, and tears as Steffy was trying to comprehend that the man she saw Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) shoot a bullet through never actually died.

Now, where the story gets a bit glossed over is when they get back to the hotel. Finn explains that he wouldn’t have made it, if it wasn’t for his mom, Li (Naomi Matsuda).  Steffy wonders if Li knew Finn was alive, why wouldn’t she tell her?  Finn tells Steffy that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) found them and things went down hill from there, but doesn’t get into any grisly details. When Steffy has some questions, Finn just wants to relish the moment, and promises he will never be apart from her ever again.

Next, Taylor (Krista Allen) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive with the children, Kelly and Hayes, and the Finnegan/Forrester clan are back together again, against all odds, complete with epic music and slo-motion.

Throughout this story arc, kudos has to go to Tanner Novlan. Without his emotional performances and the viewers investing in Finn’s freedom from the hands of Sheila, this would not have played the same.

So, what did you think of the Sinn reunion?  Do you think it holds up with the other classic B&B couple reunions? Did it fall flat in the explanation from Finn to Steffy of where he has been all this time, or do you think the key points were on-point and you were reaching for the hankies, anyways? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first watch the final scene from Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn and Li are Reunited

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, the CBS daytime drama moved the story forward in a major way.

While Finn (Tanner Novlan) was trying to outwit Sheila (Kimberlin Brown), he tells his bio-mom that she can’t keep him prisoner anymore and that he is going to walk out of this situation, and get back to his wife, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and his son, Hayes.

Elsewhere, Li (Naomi Matsuda) has finally been able to put more than two words together, and tells both Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill (Don Diamont) that Finn is alive.  She even details how she signed her son’s death certificate, and secretly whisked him away to a safe place to nurse him back to health and keep him away from Sheila.  Li also recounts to the Spencer men, how Sheila found her with Finn, and how she ultimately lost control of her car and landed in a fiery crash into the water.  Bill puts two and two together, as does Liam, and they realize Li is telling the truth.  Next, Bill asks Li if she knows where Finn and Sheila are, and off they go to save Finn.

Later, Finn has taken out all of his IV’s and such, and begins to walk out of his room and towards the front door, as Sheila watches in desperation. Just then, Bill bursts through the door and sees for himself – Sheila and Finn.  Next, Bill steps out of the way and Li is at the door.  Li and Finn are overcome with emotion as Li runs to her son, and says “Finn! Thank God! Oh my God!” At the same time, Li shoots daggers at Sheila, who begins to hyperventilate.

The loving mother and son are finally reunited, but what will happen next?  All we know is that we watched a hankie-inducing moment in the story played to the hilt by Tanner Novlan and Naomi Matsuda.

Watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

Now weigh-in: What did you think of the performances of Tanner Novlan, Kimberlin Brown, and Naomi Matsuda? Let us know in the comment section.
