THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn Tells Sheila That She Saved Kelly’s Life

Summertime can bring accidental drownings, hence that was the message on Monday’s July 31st episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. Well, not the entire message. What was conveyed is now Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) will be looking like a ‘hero’ for saving Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy’s daughter, Kelly (Sophia Paras) from a fate in the water.

In story, Sheila, who is kinda sorta stalking her son, Finn (Tanner Novlan), while he is at the beach with Kelly, sees that Kelly had decided to go back into the ocean, while Finn is preoccupied with his back turned. That’s because Finn received a call about one of his patients, and being the good doctor that he is, he asked Kelly to stay right where she was, while he took the call.

Problem is, Kelly took off and once in the ocean was being swept by the tide.  Sheila spots this and runs to the ocean to save her,  Finn turns around as he hears Kelly yelling for help.  Sheila pulls Kelly out of the water to safety and Finn picks her up and runs to the beach blanket with the little girl in his arms.  Kelly coughs, but is alright as Sheila and Finn stare at each other.

On the beach, Finn tells Kelly, “I shouldn’t have taken my eyes off of you. I’m sorry honey.” Kelly responds, “It’s okay. She saved me.”  Realizing what Sheila has done, Finn says, “Thank you. Mom. Thank you.” Kelly then asks, “She’s your mom?” Finn says, she is, and asks Sheila what she’s doing there in the first place. Sheila claims she just wanted to see her son.  Finn is impressed and says, “You saved her life. You saved Kelly’s life.”

Meanwhile, at the cliff house, Liam is going on and on about Finn’s latest bonding with his mother.  Steffy snarls at the thought of her husband hugging it out with Sheila. At the end of the day, Steffy can’t believe that her husband would put her or her kids in jeopardy.  She’s certain there’s nothing Sheila can do to convince Finn to have her come back into their lives.

Just wait till Steffy finds out Finn had his back to Kelly and she almost drowned and Sheila was somehow there on the scene and saved her daughter!  Look for Steffy and Finn to hit the rocks soon, don’t you think?

So, what did you think of Sheila saving Kelly? Do you think Finn will now be so enamored with his mother that he will risk the end of his marriage to Steffy? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

We all see what is going down Brad at it again . Not seen Taylor in forever should she not have been at the trial instead of Liam well you did it again I’m personally worn out and Brooke and Ridge who cares it’s a worn out story . Won’t bitch anymore just shut her down . Everybody gripes about Bill Bell’s legacy but his own son has destroyed it

I don’t know what Brad Bell is doing but he is MOST DEFINITELY ruining Finn; him and Steffy better NOT break up. I’m waiting on him to find out about Liam kissing Steffy NOT once but TWICE. I’m ready for him to explode on him and Steffy will be the biggest hypocrite ever for keeping the kisses a secret! Brad, PLEASE fix your writing.

I am so tired of Liam!

I love Steffy .. I don’t know about fin .. because of his crazy mother . ..I don’t like her

Would love to see Sheila get therapy and be redeemed. Please don’t put Finn and Hope together !!! It would destroy the hottest couple / lovestory in daytime !!! Love Hope and Thomas. Love to see a little baby Thope !!!

Dick Van Dyke as Days of our Lives’ Timothy Robicheaux Meets John Black’s Family

Dick Van Dyke’s guest star turn on Days of our Lives has been a huge win for the long-running soap opera. During his entire run, Van Dyke has brought so much heart to his scenes, even though the story may be often far-fetched. It’s a testament to this television icon, that even at 97-years-old, he still has the acting chops and that endearing quality that audiences have loved for decades.

Now on Days of our Lives, Van Dyke is playing Timothy Robicheaux and as it was revealed last week, Van Dyke wasn’t playing just any amnesiac war veteran mystery man, he is tied to a major Salem character!

As predicted, Van Dyke turned out to be playing the real biological father of John Black (Drake Hogestyn), and the man John has been searching for all his life.  Previously, John thought the evil Yo Ling was his bio-dad.

On Thursday’s episode, Timothy was going to meet members of his new family. So, John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) bring him home from the hospital, where “Tim” meets his granddaughter, Belle (Martha Madison) and grandson, Brady (Eric Martsolf).  Later, Paul (Christopher Sean) shows up, and so too does Paul’s boyfriend, Andrew (Colton Little).

It is Andrew who suggests that they take a family photo, which he is happy to snap.  Throughout it all, it was heartwarming to see Van Dyke’s portrayal of a man who has lived most of his life all alone finally being reconnected to the family he lost.  There was even a moment where Timothy becomes overwhelmed with tears, and still a moment that followed between John and Timothy, where John asks him if it’s OK that he calls him “Dad!” Cue the hankies!

If next year, Van Dyke submits himself for a Daytime Emmy in the Guest Star category, he has to be a lock!

So, what did you think of the scenes where Timothy meets Belle, Brady, Paul and Andrew, and gets to know his son, John Black just a little bit better? Has Dick Van Dyke’s performance been bringing you to tears? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Victor Kiriakis is Laid To Rest in Tribute to John Aniston: What Did You Think of the Memorial Service?

This week, on Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running soap opera laid the character of Victor Kiriakis to rest, ten months after his portrayer, TV icon, John Aniston passed away.

In the final send-off, Victor’s loved ones gather for an informal funeral service just outside the Kiriakis mausoleum. Justin (Wally Kurth) reveals that Victor will be interned next to his beloved daughter, Isabella.

Several returns for this emotional occasion made this extra touching for DAYS viewers. In fact, a few of the actors that did return to the show, asked to be a part of the memorial, because of their love and respect for their time sharing scenes with Aniston. Those included: Rachel Melvin (Chelsea) and Jen Lilley (Theresa). In addition, John-Paul Lavoisier reprised his role as Victor’s son, Phillip Kiriakis, and Zach Tinker was back as Sonny Kiriakis.


We have to say, it was Tinker, Melvin, and Lavoisier’s portrayed remembrances during the service that truly tugged at the heartstrings. Each of their characters shared a bit of Victor’s history and his familial ties, ultimately revealing the devastating heartbreak they felt with his loss.

Then, there was Suzanne Rogers (Maggie). Currently celebrating her 50th anniversary with the show, Rogers effectively depicted the pain of a grieving widow who lost her other half.  When Sonny addressed Maggie at the funeral, and the love his uncle Victor had for ‘sweet’ Maggie, it made many a longtime viewer reach for the hankies.


Other characters who spoke or attended the memorial service included: Kate (Lauren Koslow), Alex (Robert Scott Wilson), Xander (Paul Telfer), Brady (Eric Martsolf), Rex (Kyle Lowder), Sarah (Linsey Godfrey), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), Brandon Beemer (Shawn), Martha Madison (Belle) and others. In fact, it was Justin, who captured a bit of the essence of his uncle Victor, when he shared to the guests, “I will miss that meddling.”


Following the service, there had to be one unwanted arrival, right? After the Kiriakis family returns to Victor’s mansion who should saunter in? That’s right! Vivian Alamain, played by the deliciously wicked, Louise Sorel.

So, what did you think about Days of our Lives’ memorial service for Victor Kiriakis, that concluded with a montage of memorable moments in the life of Victor as played by John Aniston with his co-stars? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.  In case you missed it, check out You Tube’s Michael Fairman recent interview with Suzanne Rogers, where she discussed: losing her on-screen partner, John Aniston, Victor’s death, and what may come next for Maggie, and more.

Dick Van Dyke and Drake Hogestyn Deliver Heart-Tugging Scenes as Days of our Lives’ Father and Son are Reunited

On Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Dick Van Dyke reminded us all why he is a national treasure. At 97-years-old, he can still pull off great performances, and now he can add his role on Days of our Lives to that list.

Van Dyke had never appeared on a soap opera, previously, but due to his friendship with Drake Hogestyn (John), this once and a lifetime guest-star turn has turned into quite the memorable one.

For DAYS fans who guessed that Van Dyke’s ‘mystery man’ would turn out to be John Black’s biological father, you were correct!  In story, it now turns out the real Timothy Robicheaux is Van Dyke’s amnesiac war veteran, who formerly was being called, “Joseph Bell.”


With so many twists and turns in the life of John Black, and so many confusing stories through the years, it is revealed through a series of flashbacks that during the Korean war and while in combat, Joseph Bell’s dog tags were switched by a soldier who left him there to die.  This key piece of intel is told by Bell while sitting with Marlena in her office, along with John.  Later, John reveals a pair of dog tags around his neck, and that Bell’s real name is Timothy Robicheaux. John says “All this time, you’ve been searching for your son. Sir, your search is over.”

Marlena (Deidre Hall) tells Timothy he was lost in the VA system after he was severely wounded in the war. John didn’t know much about his upbringing, except he was born on a rural farm, and Timothy came from a farm.

As his memory is further triggered, Timothy remembers his wife’s name was Maude and she had their baby after he was lost in the war.  Timothy feels sorry for the hard life John has had to live. John informs his father that Maude died a few years ago.


With all the sorrow and the pain, they have endured in their lifetimes, John and Timothy are just so happy they have found each other, at long last. In an emotional moment, John shares all the versions of himself and identities he has had along the way, but credits Marlena and Timothy for him being the man he is today.  This is followed, by yet, another touching moment when Timothy and John hug for the first time as father and son. Timothy vows that they will never lose each other again.

Through these scenes, Van Dyke played the beats of the story so convincingly, and made us feel for this man who finally finds the son he has longed for over years.  While this brought yet another change to John Black’s history and back-story, it is a welcome one. Finally, John gets a decent man for a dad, not the evil Yo Ling, when all is said and done.

So, what did you think of the scenes between Dick Van Dyke and Drake Hogestyn as father and son, who find each other after decades of being apart? Let us know in the comment section, but first check out next week’s promo for DAYS where Timothy meets the rest of his family including his grandson, Paul Narita (Christopher Sean).
