THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge Chooses Taylor

Courtesy/CBS

Looks like Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) continued machinations finally paid off for now on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.   Not giving up hope that they can reunite their mother, Taylor (Krista Allen) with their father, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and have Ridge kick Brooke to the curb for good measure, today’s episode would mark a success for the Forrester fam.

However, we still don’t know for sure who is behind the call to CPS (Child Protective Services) that Ridge assumes was Brooke … but could it be Thomas or Douglas (Django Ferri/but soon-to-be the returning Henry Joseph Samiri) using the voice-changer? Whatever the case, B&B has found yet another way to break up Brooke and Ridge.  Something tells us when the truth comes out, Ridge may regret his ‘bold’ move in Aspen.

After having an epiphany when a pinecone falls on his head, Ridge hightails it to Aspen to find Taylor.  Meanwhile, Taylor is lamenting that she doesn’t want to be Ridge’s second choice and involved in a constant flip-flop for his love, attention, and devotion along with Brooke.

Ridge tells Taylor he understands why she would want to run if he was stuck between two women; but he’s not that man anymore.  He exclaims: “I want to be a better man, and you make me a better man. I want to be with you, for always.”

In typical B&B sweeping romantic fashion, the scenes between Ridge and Taylor are shot on the top of the mountains overlooking Aspen. Ridge professes his love to Taylor saying: “I’m here for us and I want you to be here for us too. Can you do that?” At first, Taylor shakes her head and relates, “I’m sorry.”  Then, after a brief pause with a smile and tears in her eyes, Taylor asks Ridge,”But what took you so long?”  Next, they embrace and share a heartfelt and passionate kiss.

Meantime, Brooke is on the private jet trying to get to Aspen knowing her marriage is in real trouble.  What will she do when she finds out Ridge gave his heart to Taylor?   Will there be a twist coming?

Check out the key scene where Taylor and Ridge reunite on the mountain top below.

Then let us know, do you want Ridge to stay with Taylor, or do you hope he goes back with Brooke? And, who made the call to CPS that started this whole mess over Douglas staying with his bio-dad, Thomas? Share your theories in the comment section.

I agree, John. It reminds me of a dance caller yelling “CHANGE PARTNERS” when there are only two couples dancing. BORING!

After seeing todays episode I agree the writing is awful I wish this time Brooke & Taylor would say go away he does not deserve either one of them . I hate what they have also done to the character of Thomas.

Hi, Iam as bored and disgusted as most everyone, but can’t stop watching, if only to watch that dumb Ridge stand there and just turn him head back and forth and to hopefully put his son in his place when it finally comes out what terrible thing he’s done,no matter the end results.Who cares who Ridge chooses!

Brooke should just cut the waffler loose and get with Bill. I used to hate them as a pair. Bu he truly values her and she seems happy when she’s with him.

You make a good point. l don’t understand what these two women see in this waffler as you called him. Right now he’s thinking Brooke is lying about the CPS thing but how will he react when he finds out the truth? Y

While bold has had some good storylines as of late this one is a downer. Ridge is one of the most arrogant obnoxious characters in daytime he makes you root for dollar bill and those scenes of Taylor running away from him were pathetic these characters are supposed to be late fifties and are acting like 90210 high schoolers and even worse is the parent trap nonsense of steffy and Thomas get a life I’m really rooting for bill and Li and it’s a shame that Rena sofer wasn’t given a better offer she’s gold bold there has got to… Read more »

OK I haven’t watched B&B for over 20 years but I had to post when I saw this. I simply can’t believe the Ridge/Brooke vs Ridge/Taylor is still going on. OMG

I have waited 3 decades for this to happen. I kind of wish it was the original characters, but I’ll take it. I know someone used Brooke’s voice on that call, but for now this win for Taylor is sweet.

Brad your giving me whip lash! No reflections on any of the actors but TK comes out of his coma with KA Taylor . These are the things that have always bugged me about Brooke who sleeps with their daughters husband and has a child then she has sex against a wall with Hopes boyfriend at a party because she thought he was Ridge!! Really! I was hoping for a new path for Taylor but yet Deacon would have been Brookes hand me downs.

I haven’t watched this show for at least 15 years because of the lack of character development.These people are now close to if not in their sixties I just read this recap and can’t believe that they are still doing Ridge/Taylor/ Brooke!!! I don’t know how anyone can sit through this show.

It’s totally crazy!! If it’s Brooke, Ridge & Taylor, it’s Steffy, Hope & Liam. How many triangles can a show have!

This storyline is more than tired. Brooke should have evolved to be stronger and tougher after Stephanie died, giving Brooke her blessing. Why is Brooke painted as bad or troubled anymore? She is 60! Ridge has been written into a loser. His family are cruel and selfish and entitled. I just feel no empathy for them. Brooke and Bill make a more attractive and vibrant pair. Make them the Victor and Nikki of B&B and the new center. The Forrester family is no longer interesting.

Since B n B thrives on triangles I would love for this to be the last hoorah for this tired trio. It hurts without the original Ridge ( Moss) and Taylor ( tylo) . Time to retire these three and plunge. The Hope and Steffy triangle needs to mature up and introduce a new young teen triangle to grow into the show as leads! I thought there was tons of potential with Zende and Nicole and her sister because it reminded me of how beautiful Hunter, Ron and Katherine were when we first met those three. You could nt keep… Read more »

About time for Ridge and Taylor, Ridge needs to stand up to Brook on her constant bashing of Thomas and her meddling in Douglas’s life, like wanting him to forget the kiss he saw with Santa and trying to make Hope his only legal parent, Regardless of who made the CPS Call, Brook is not innocent of her judgement or threat.

Good luck I think they have great chemistry KA & TK but I am very sad because it will always end up with Brooke! If I was a shrink I would say severe problems decide which you want and let’s end the cycle of destruction only show I watch but I think I’m ready to fold it in ! I love KA and TK chemistry wonderful lord of fun but time to fold it in ! If grown ups are going to play the game let’s just close the story ! I think all of them are tired of this

How can anyone watch this and not know how it will end? When it comes out what Thomas has done, Ridge will be guiltily back with Brooke, unless she’s already being consoled by Bill, Now, that’s what I call destiny , by default.

Let’s just cut go the chase when Eric realizes what Thomas has done, all he’ll will break loose, including his neck when his dad learns the truth.
Ridge did not really choose Taylor, he was pushed into it by his interfering kids, which is going to hurt Taylor more in the end. Oh, what a tangled web we weave, etc,etc.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

Courtesy/WWE

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Courtesy/WWE

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

Photo: ABC

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

Courtesy/ABC

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.
