THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge & Bill and The FBI Are Working Together to Bring Down Sheila!

Courtesy/CBS

How’s that for a headline we thought we would never see, or did not see coming … at all! On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, there was a quite a shocking cliffhanger in store for viewers.

The twist brings Thorsten Kaye back into the canvas after his character of Ridge presumably left town following Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Taylor (Krista Allen) kicking him to the curb.

Meanwhile for months now, viewers have been wondering what the hell is wrong with Bill Spencer (Don Diamont)? How could he be romantically involved with Sheila (Kimberlin Brown)? Hitting the sheets with her? Defending her? Blackmailing Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn (Tanner Novlan) to keep Sheila out of jail?

Many presumed it would be revealed that Bill has a brain tumor, or a physical ailment or had some sort of psychotic break (sword necklace and all), that would explain away his behavior.

Turns out we sort of got our answer at the end of yesterday’s episode.  In it, we see someone scanning a key card to go into “authorized personnel only” room. As the camera pans up, we see plenty of computers and a jacket that reads FBI.  Yes, the kind with big yellow letters on it.

Next, the cameras reveal a man taking off his headphones.  When we pan up, it is revealed that the man is actually Ridge Forrester in a sort of ‘man-bun’.  Next to him is … Bill!

Then Ridge calls Bill his “partner” in this takedown, and asks how is he holding up?  Just then, we see Bill angrily looking at multi-cams from Bill’s house and of Sheila sitting on the phone talking to someone.  Bill then declares that he wants to put Shiela Carter behind bars for life.

The story point has left viewers a bit confused. Such as: Sheila was already behind bars, when Bill got her out of the slammer by blackmailing Steffy and Finn over revealing that Taylor shot him years ago.

So, what did you think about the Ridge and Bill shocker? Do you think this is going to redeem Ridge in the eyes of Brooke and Taylor because he has thus been “protecting” their families this whole time? Do you think Bill will be able to keep his apparent charade with Sheila up much longer?  Watch the reveal below, and then share your thoughts and theories in the comment section.

Terrible. Sheila has been my absolute favourite character and Kimberlin fave actress in the 30 plus years I’ve been watching this show. I wish they would’ve stayed on the path to redemption when she reappeared in 2021. Not looking forward to the bore this show so often is during the years when she is absent.

I hope they don’t cancel Shelia, she is the Only reason I watch B&B

Linda,
OMG, what’s wrong with you people?

I hope she stays on B&B too because I don’t watch the show and if they set her loose she’ll storm I over to Y&R, a show I do watch. I don’t find Sheila interesting or compelling- she’s redundant and boring.

I don’t think this was the intent but I think negative viewers on Social media made Brad do a u turn. Soaps like everything else are not getting viewers people I’m one of them are disenchanted with the writing etc

Bill & Ridge working together? Never thought I’d see that happening.

I absolutely love this turn in the road! Hott!!

Yes! In keeping with friendship of Taylor & Brooke too!
But it can’t be an easy Sheila take down! Both Ridge & Bill will be
fighting for their lives against the FBI!

Linda Foris
I don’t think they are fighting AGAINST the FBI, but are working WITH them.

With the FBI involved, they’re looking for info on a specific crime that Sheila did.
The only way this makes sense.

This twist is a bit lame. The police has Sheila in custody with potential strong charges by Steffy and Finn. The threat of blackmail on Taylor seems weak as an excuse to allow this plot turn having the alpha males to have their own way. Is this a redemptive exercise to yet again activate the decades long merry go around for Brooke, Ridge, Taylor, and Bill? Boys showing off to win the girls? The Sheila return has lacked sustained suspense. Finn’s father and adoptive mother were here and gone. Wouldn’t they be engaged more? She never seems in jeopardy. I read speculation about her murder. Yeah right!

She was just going to be charged with attempted on steffy and finn…. they are going after her for life for actual murder so does make sense

Does this show EVER have a long-term story outline in place? They just write as they go with no thought to what happened a day, a week, or a year ago. Just like it says above, Sheila was already behind bars. Why would the FBI allow her to get out, allow Bill to blackmail her, and use private citizens in their 60’s (Bill and Ridge) to try to bring her down?

General Hospital still would have us believe that world law and spy agencies would still be recruiting the services of people in their 60’s and 70’s to run stealth, covert missions. Lol. But that’s GH … it is a spy and crime show and has been for over 40 years. B and B is not.

i give bold credit for being able to keep this under wraps they’ve done this a number of times in the last few years without social media bursting the bubble beforehand another interesting twist that will have people talking and while kimberlin is fantastic there is no redeeming sheila i still say she escapes and heads to genoa city to find lauren

Thorsten Kaye has never been Ridge and he looks awful looks like he is 70 what the heck! And do not start on Ronn moss he was dynamite looking yes he had his moments but this is just nonsense

I’m sorry, but Thorsten Kaye is a much better actor than boring Ronn Moss. Ron just stood around looking like a freaking statue. No real emotion. Nothing, so I was glad when TPTB replaced him. Thorston looks damn good, especiallyfor an older man. I always found Ronn Moss unattractive as hell! Tall and scrawny with a scratchy voice. Ugh…JMO

Sheila’s going to Al fox the three idiots yet again

I wish Taylor wouldn’t wear that vest/pants with that effing sweater off the shoulder for THREE days! I’m also sick of hair extensions! Glad Ridge is back.

Dave,
Who is AL Fox, someone new?

Yes love it

Yes love it please keep Brook and Taylor friends and Bill & Ridge friends.

I thought Sheila signed a three year Contract with the show. So, she will be on this show until summer of 2024. She is a Phenomenal actress ❤️. Time for Hope and Liam to take a Six Month break from the show!! So tired of all of their whining and complaining about Everything. Let’s finally get Donna & Eric married,, need a super extravaganza of a Wedding!!!

I like that Bill and Ridge are working together. Sheila is a good actress. She could certainly go to Y&R to shake things up over there thing. I find B&B more interesting and like the changing of story lines.

The biggest problem with B&B is that it should have extended into being an hour long rather than only a half hour long decades ago. Because of this, the show has been stunted in it’s ability to grow and expand. There are not enough characters on canvas so it really limits what the writers can do. They have a huge tendency to repeat themselves over and over and that’s when for us watching it can get really tedious. For example, you sometimes get Steffy & Finn or Hope & Liam repeating relatively the same dialog two or even three days in a row before we get something new. I have a tendency to fast forward through at least five minutes out of each episode and miss virtually nothing because I know it’s just the same dialog. GO TO AN HOUR!! IT’S MORE THAN PAST TIME FOR IT!!

Totally agree with you Julie. Y&R, GH & DAYS run circles around B&B when it comes to dialog writing because they aren’t nearly as repetitive. A scene with the same characters that takes B&B 3 episodes to get through takes the other soaps only 1 because of the expanded length.

Story-wise, it also feels like there are major missing pieces on B&B. Why has it taken this long for R.J. to return? Where has Jack Marone been all of these years, and why is he never mentioned? Where did Maya, Flo and Bridget go? They were never given a proper exit. Why are Thorne, Felicia and Rick not on the show? They are Eric’s children and should be playing a much larger role in the company/family.

If B&B were an hour long, maybe we would get better dialog, more characters to spread around the canvas, and less repetitive stories, but that seems very unlikely.

Sheila is like one of these ailments you see on TV, chronic that never go away. I think she will allude Ridge, Bill and the rest of the law enforcement, make her getaway or be assumed dead and hopefully will be gone for a long time until next time, and where she pops up, nobody knows.

It seems like Ridge did a scene like this with FBI on Bold and Beautiful before.

Yea familiar isn’t it?

The Logan ladies old geezer dad sure had a nerve attacking Ridge for not being there for his daughters. Where the heck was he years ago when they needed a dad and his wife z husband? What an old hypocrit!
Sorry, Bobby Ewing, still love ya!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kristina is Rocked By Sonny’s Behavior, Finn Teeters on the Edge as Gregory’s Condition Worsens

Monday’s May 20th episode of General Hospital brought with it emotional moments featuring excellent performances by Kate Mansi (Kristina), Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Michael Easton (Finn).

In the pick of Friday’s cliffhanger, Sonny goes postal on Dex (Evan Hofer) and Jason (Steve Burton), until he sees that Kristina heard and saw the whole thing. She runs into the bathroom, while Sonny goes after her.

Sonny is begging Kristina to let him explain. He goes on to say how Dex and Jason both turned on him, and to please not be afraid of him. But, all Kristina can do is cry as she begs Sonny not to touch her, and with that, he walks out.

Alone and frightened, and trying to calm herself down, Kristina phones Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) and tells her to come to the bathroom. Kristina is worried about her unborn baby, and cannot believe her father’s behavior.  It’s at that point, Kristina voices she feels like a fool because everyone was warning her about her father. She thought he had a code of ethics, but the man she saw threaten to kill Dex and Jason is nothing like that, leaving her bewildered and stunned.

Jason calls Carly (Laura Wright) and she comes running to the Metro Court to find Sonny, while Jason follows her, but remains sight unseen. Carly finds Sonny at the pool area. Sonny says he thinks no one loves him anymore. Carly says Kristina just needs some time. Carly tells Sonny to not act like that again, but Sonny says he can’t promise that.

Following Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding, Gregory, Finn and Violet (Jophielle Love) come home.  When Violet  goes to bed, it leaves father and son to have some very heavy moments given Gregory’s battle with ALS. Finn tells his dad that he appreciates the time they have together now after years of being apart. Gregory tells Finn he is proud of him, which brings the good doctor to tears.

After Finn helps Gregory get ready for bed, he leaves and calls Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn). Finn admits he threw away 7 years of sobriety by somehow taking a sip of champagne at the wedding reception. Alexis wonders if subconsciously he wanted the drink but says that doesn’t mean he failed.

At the end of episode, Gregory is in bed, and has flashes of his own life from a child till now, and of his children, Finn and Chase. He finally closes his eyes. Will Gregory not wake up sending Finn on a complete downward spiral? Stay tuned!

AMERICAN IDOL: Abi Carter Crowned the Winner, Katy Perry Sheds Tears In Her Final Episode

American Idol has crowned its winner when platinum ticket holder, Abi Carter took herself all the way to the finals with her exquisite voice and performances.

The 21-year-old from Indio, California, won Americas vote to become the “American Idol” season 22 champion during Sunday night’s finale on ABC besting runner-up Will Moseley. Earlier in the finale, Jack Blocker came in third.

During the three-hour season finale, Carter got a surprise video from her idol, Billie Eilish, which reduced her to tears. That would be a first of many moments through the show that Abi was emotional, and so too, was departing judge, pop superstar, Katy Perry.

When Carter was crowned the winner, the camera panned to the judges table where Perry was in a puddle of tears overjoyed for Carter, and also knowing this was the end of her run after seven years with the show.

Earlier this season, Katy announced she would be stepping away from “Idol”.  A replacement has not yet been named. At the end of the finale, judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie shared an emotional hug with Perry, who also performed during the show with the aforementioned, Jack Blocker.

Previously, Perry during the audition process, voted not to send Blocker through and gave him a “no”. Blocker’s fortunes were changed when the ‘Idol’ production crew and Bryan wanted him to move on to Hollywood and the rest, as they say, was ‘Idol’ history.

The who’s who of the music industry was also on hand to perform with the top ten runner-ups in musical numbers leading into the final moments of the show. Guest performers included: Jon Bon Jovi, Jason Mraz, Wynonna Judd, Seal and New Kids on the Block.

In the moment of the night, Ryan Seacrest revealed Abi as the winner and she fell to the floor in tears. After previewing her new single in the final round of competition, “This Isn’t Over”, Carter attempted to gather herself to sing a reprieve of Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” It was that song that started Abi’s ‘Idol’ journey.

On Friday’s, May 17th episode of General Hospital, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding reception was the focal point as the touching celebration for the newlyweds got underway.

Next, Sonny calls Dex a snitch, a spy, and lets him know he is “lucky to be breathing.”  Sonny issues Dex a warning to stay away from his family, or he may not be breathing much longer.

As Sonny turns to walk away., Dex grabs him by the arm to try to reason with him and to and say he’s not his enemy. However, Sonny throws a punch. In the pickup, Sonny continues to bloody and beatdown Dex, until Jason (Steve Burton) arrives on the scene and restrains Sonny.
