THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge Makes a Beeline to Brooke

Courtesy/CBS

Now that Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) duplicity and machinations are all out and the open, and Taylor (Krista Allen) also kept her mouth shut right before her wedding to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), the question on B&B fans minds is … what on earth will Ridge to do next?

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Ridge really lit into his son.  After finding out Thomas called Child Protective Services, pretending to be Brooke (by using Douglas’ voice-changing app), Ridge fumes that his son is in need of some serious help; adding that what he did was sick and twisted. Ridge tells Thomas he is also going to talk to Eric (John McCook) about Thomas’ place at Forrester Creations.

In his overwhelming sense of betrayal, Ridge yells at his son: “I gave you life! I gave you love, I gave you support, and you took it all. Is there anything else you can possibly take from me? I was so proud of you! It makes me sick to look at you.”  Those words stung and Thomas was left in tears in another excellent performance by Matthew Atkinson.

Now, Ridge had a major decision to make – what to do about his bride, Taylor.  No matter how much Taylor, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Thomas tried to make Ridge realize that he belongs with Taylor, and that this is an opportunity for them to be a family again, Ridge is torn.

Previously, Taylor admitted to not fessing up to Ridge about what she learned right before the nuptials (that Thomas made the call to CPS as Brooke) saying she was scared and confused since she was one step away from becoming his wife. “My God Ridge, I love you so much,” she says. Ridge tells Taylor that he loves her too, but he’s going to set this situation straight.  Next thing you know, Ridge walks out as a devastated Taylor is left crying on the couch with Steffy trying to comfort her, and Thomas’ life imploding before him.

Next, Brooke gets a surprise visitor at her door when Ridge arrives. A shocked Brooke listens as Ridge tells her that he learned something today that she needs to know. He starts with, “I should have had more faith in you.”

Ridge goes on to explain that he was so certain, that she was the one who called CPS on Thomas.  Brooke is stunned!  She tells Ridge she never made such a call. That’s when Ridge shares he knows that now as it was Thomas who manipulated the situation to blow up their marriage. Ridge claims he knew in his heart of hearts that Brooke would never do something like this. Before the episode fades to black, Ridge admits to Brooke, “I am more sorry than I can say.”

Now let us know, what do you think will happen next? Will Brooke be so hurt that Ridge had such little faith in her that she will not take him back? Will Ridge head back to the Forresters and get married to Taylor, anyway?  Comment below.  But, first check out the final scene between Brooke and Ridge from yesterday’s B&B.

writers please make brooke show him the door ridge is the absolute worst you never told her the reason-you were upset in the first place you have carter bring ridiculous annulment papers when you have been married 26 times and have a son show brooke being strong and let her tell ridge later much later and no stallion or deacon either

AMEN! The show would go in wonderful new directions with that plot twist … Ridge and Brooke are not the end game. Make her strong, powerful, rich, fascinating. KKL should be the new Stephanie. Does anyone remember the passing of the torch when Stephanie died? Brooke could’ve so amazing. Ridge just drags her down. Actually as written, Ridge drags everyone down. This voice app story is as bad as the digital picture frame revelation of a simple kiss with Bill. These people are smarter than that. They act like children and are so hypocritical. Move on with their lives, writers. We as viewers can accept it.

For Brooke to even utter the word “decency” today in her holier than thou attitude was just disgusting. Those of us who have watched from the beginning know that Brooke hasn’t been decent a day in her life.

Quite a few characters have done things not to be proud of: RIDGE, Taylor, Thomas. Steffy,Liam, Justin. Carter and Quinn and I am sure many more I forgot to mention. I am gad the writers didn’t have her falling back into Ridge’s arm. Let Taylor have her dream wedding and her need to bring her family back together. I could see if her (KIDS) were children, but they are 30something!! Give me a break!

Yes she deserves her wedding.

right on

It would of been better if the B&B had made Ridge and Brooke the new Forrestors monarchs as Eric and Stepanine were. Then start the drama in the younger generation with all the children and bring back the children that are gone.

I guess I’m lucky. Since I’m relatively new to B&B I haven’t seen the baggage Brooke has accumulated over the years. Seems she’s matured, and is liking who she sees in the mirror. So I was really impressed by her “respect” speech.

rose
You have no idea the escalator these people have been on for years. Ridge did owe her an explanation,especially when she’d ask him a question right out and he’d just stand there like an idiot. I don’t think either woman deserves the jerk he’s become.

Final word this is all on Ridge he needs to be in serious therapy. Saying that I think I’m going to get off this train wreck !! Perry Mason reruns here I come!! Ha!

Recently read an article where Ronn Moss, the previous Ridge says that, that should have been the end of the Ridge character when he left. I thought then, how selfish of him but now Iam starting to agree with him. Thorsten Kaye was good on AMC but as Ridge Forrester, he’s fallen short and very disappointing.

it is the story line that is crazy, not the acting.

Ridge needs a long break from Brooke and Taylor.

He can’t be without a woman. Some people hate being alone for one minute and he should have stayed away from Taylor since he’s not capable of keeping his promise to her and Steffy when he said he’d protect her mother’s heart. He’s a real jerk.

From Broke.

Stephanie Forrester can’t be replaced!There is no Forrester Creations without Stephanie father money to start Forrester Creations, but it’s very sad that her husband makes his mistress and her children believe that his success was all because of his hard work when that was far from the truth. Eric need’s to share with everyone that getting Stephanie pregnant was the best thing that ever happened in his life because, Stephanie father was a wealthy man that completely loved his daughter and first grandson (Ridge), so he gave Stephanie the money to start Forrester Creations and protected her and their children legally should he ever divorce Stephanie. Forrester Creations will not be split, but owned by Stephanie Douglas Forrester, her children, and grandchildren or if Stephanie passes away the business belongs to Stephanie’s children and grandchildren. Its time Eric Forrester give Stephanie, her children, and grandchildren a public apology for disrespecting his marriage to Stephanie and most importantly disrespecting how much Stephanie love was so important to her father. Eric, you have been too comfortable with the mother daughter combo during the course of you’re marriage to Stephanie. It’s time Ridge no longer walk-in the shadow of you, but restore the one thing that mattered most to his mother “family”, and doing it with Taylor will be a better direction for the show which also includes Eric giving all his shares to Steffy who will inherit Queen Stephanie position respectfully and rightfully because, Eric and Ridge is getting old this will turn the tables best. Meanwhile, I haven’t forgotten about Thomas and Ridge’s real father its time Ridge’s biological father put Eric Forrester in his place, and help his grandson Thomas. Brooke Logan is just like her mother Beth Logan untasteful!

Tired of broken record Brooke!!! Please no more reconciliations between them !! Krista Allen is new fresh funny.. new

Y&R’s Eileen Davidson Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Taking on a DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) storyline on the soaps can be extraordinarily challenging for the performer who is tasked with making a clear distinction and delineation between the various alters of their character.

However, the other trick to playing this kind of story, is often having the various alters trying to hide the fact from those they know and love of what is truly going on with them, so as not to tip them off, as to what is happening to them as they battle for control of a person’s psyche.

The gold standard is One Life to Live icon Erika Slezak’s (ex-Viki) Emmy-winning and gut-wrenching and riveting DID storyline where we met Tori, Niki (although we met her earlier in the life of the show), Tommy, Princess, Jean and even her father, Victor.

Now in 2024, The Young and the Restless’ Eileen Davidson is playing out a new DID storyline for the first time as Ashley Abbott. We knew decades ago that Ashley had a breakdown and has suffered psychological issues, but this has taken it to a new level. And, let’s be real, if you are going to give someone currently on a soap a DID story, who better than Davidson, who is used to playing multiple characters at one time as she did on Days of our Lives. Although on DAYS, each of the characters were their own distinct person, while now on Y&R, Ashley’s alters are fighting for control of her being,

Last week, on the Thursday, April 12th episode of the CBS soap opera, Davidson truly got to shine, as in front of the Abbott family and through what was supposed to be an intervention (they hadn’t figure out what the hell was happening to her), Ashley was flipping from alter to alter. We know there is Ms. Abbott, and Ash thus far, but there is said to be one more alter a-coming.

In the key scenes, Davidson’s internal struggle was played pretty masterfully in a scene where she literally is in a tug of war with her alters and flings herself on the couch, while Jack (Peter Bergman), Diane (Susan Walters), Billy (Jason Thompson) and Traci (Beth Maitland) look on. Of course, there are the soap trope scenes of alters in handcuffs while the other is on the loose. And leave it to Billy to figure out Ashley is suffering from DID from his past experience.

While this all seemed to spring from Ashley’s messy relationship with Tucker (Trevor St. John) and a throw back to an old car accident where she lost her unborn baby, is there some other underlying issue in Ashley’s past that was even more traumatizing that will be revealed as another trigger for this massive personality split? We shall see.

In the meantime, Michael Fairman TV names Eileen Davidson’s work the Power Performance of the Week, and rest assured, come 2025, Davidson will find herself going for the third Daytime Emmy win as Lead Actress for this storyline.

So, let us know, what did you think of Eileen’s performance? Are you enjoying Ashley’s DID storyline? What do you think will happen to her next? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: “Sugar Sugar! Oh, Honey Honey”

The Bold and the Beautiful revealed at the end of the Friday April 13th episode what many viewers had guessed, that it wasn’t Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) who died when Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) stabbed her, but it had to her doppelgänger, Sugar, or at least it seems that way.

Deacon (Sean Kanan) has been beside himself since seeing what was supposed to be Sheila’s body being cremated, but revealing the body had ten toes and not nine, and we all know Sheila had cut off her toe, so she only had nine.

While explaining his thoughts that she is alive to Finn (Tanner Novlan) and then trying later to explain to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Deacon is more convinced that something is wrong here. Meanwhile, Finn went to talk to Steffy about Deacon’s theory, which stuns her, as she believed she killed Sheila in self-defense.

At Il Giardino, Deacon looks at his phone then slams it down. He flashes back to the body going into the crematorium oven saying to himself, “Maybe I’m not going crazy. Maybe that wasn’t you. And if that wasn’t you, maybe you’re out there. Maybe you need my help.”

Deacon gets on Sheila’s laptop and tries to find something that might help him figure out where Sheila has gone. He looks at her text message communications and sees a section from an unknown number. He opens the messages, and Deacon reads that they’re from someone named “Sugar.”  That person said she was going to find Sheila. In the messages, Sheila made it clear she wanted no part of her. But it could be that Sheila met up with Sugar, or was forced too?

In a quick history lesson about the character of Sugar: she was originally played by Robin Mattson on B&B, and was a former prison warden who helped Sheila escape and then joined her in kidnapping Ridge Forrester to hold him for ransom. A twisted plot ensued, where flames engulfed the foundry they were at and Ridge was presumed dead. Meanwhile, Sheila and Sugar disappeared with Massimo and Sheila’s baby, Diana.

Fast forward to 2006, Sheila returned to Genoa City to go after Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) again and was arrested for attacking Scott Grainger (Peter Barton). In a shocker, when Lauren went to visit Sheila in the slammer, she learned that the woman behind bars was actually Sugar, who had been given plastic surgery and now looks exactly like Sheila.

Now the questions become, did Sheila know that Sugar was going to attack Steffy? Did they have a plan and it went awry, or was Sheila hoping she could get rid of both Sugar and Steffy, by having her daughter-in-law sent to prison for her “murder”? Or, is Sheila out there somewhere in trouble?

Share your theories via the comment section below, and if you knew all along that it would be revealed that Sugar is the person who actually died and not Sheila. But first, check out next week on B&B where Deacon gets a visit from Lauren.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Drew and Nina Get Physical; Were You Surprised or Did You Expect it to Happen?

On the Tuesday, April 9th episode of General Hospital, Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) explosive relationship just turned up the heat another notch.

In story, Nina who was responsible (although she doesn’t see it that way) for Drew being sent to prison for insider trading when she tipped off the SEC, let out her feelings to him about how to get back in the good graces of her daughter, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell). In doing so, she asks him for his help with it.

For months, the two have had nothing short of contentious moments, where Drew has not let Nina off the hook for what he did to him, or to his ex Carly (Laura Wright). Fast-forward and when alone in the Crimson office, Nina brings up wanting to stick it to Carly again.

As they banter back and forth, Drew can’t figure out why he should help Nina at all with any of her manipulations. Suddenly, as he tried to exit, his shirt rips and exposes his bare chest and abs, and Nina get quite an eyeful. From there, things become physical and before you know it, Drew and Nina are making out and having their version of hate-sex.

Cameron Mathison spoke to Soap Opera Digest on the shocking turn events, sharing, “I didn’t see it coming at all. I really didn’t. I think the audience did. Cynthia did some appearances and I guess the audience was ‘You and Drew, there’s some sexy chemistry there.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really?’ I didn’t even get it. So I love it that it was very unexpected. The writers saw it, too. And, I love that it’s not a typical way for two people to be … physical. I was gonna say intimate, but there’s not a lot of intimacy there. And then as soon as it’s over, it’s back to arguing and giving each other crap again. It was really cute and really well done.”

As the fallout for their office room romp will air on the Wednesday April 10th episode, just how will the two deal with the fact that they had this fiery passionate moment in the weeks and months ahead? Will this be Nina’s new plot to get at Carly to be seen with her ex? Will Drew and Nina never speak of this again? (Well, this is a soap opera, after all, that’s pretty doubtful), or is this part of a major reset for some of the characters on the canvas now that Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte are co-head writing the show?

Courtesy/ABC

Speaking on the aftermath of the tryst, Mathison added, “The two of them are both like, all right, let’s forget about that and move on. It’s like a weird kind of aggression attraction. There’s obviously attraction there, but I don’t think either of them expected it, and I think they’re both totally shocked and surprised by it. I think Drew gets a kick out of it whereas Nina is a little embarrassed by it.”

Now let us know, did you see this coming? Did you think Drew and Nina would have sex? What do you think of the story turn? Comment below.
