THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Sheila and Bill are in Cahoots as History Comes Back to Bite Steffy

Courtesy/CBS

In the pick-up from Tuesday’s episode which saw Bill (Don Diamont) show up at the beach house where Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) was being tied-up by her son, Finn (Tanner Novlan ) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), Wednesday’s episode brought ‘crazy out of nowhere’ to new heights on The Bold and the Beautiful.

As had been predicted, Dollar Bill has gone back to the dark side and apparently aligned himself with Sheila Carter!  In story, when Steffy sees Bill she asks him to help them with Sheila.  Bill tells them there is no reason to tie Sheila up and that no one will call the police because everyone deserves a second chance and so does Sheila.  Steffy cannot believe what she is witnessing or hearing.  The actual best parts of these scenes were all of the reaction shots of Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as Steffy including almost throwing up realizing what was going on!

Bill goes on to explain that Katie (Heather Tom) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) all turn their backs on him, don’t want anything to do with him, and it all started with Steffy’s rejection of him. He adds that no one cares about him, and Sheila knows exactly what that feels like. He then adds that Sheila has become a part of his life now!

A flabbergasted Finn reminds Bill that he helped his mother, Li (Naomi Matsuda) rescue him from Sheila and flew him to Monte Carlo to reunite with Steffy. How is it possible that he is now teaming up with Sheila?  Bill says he’s here tonight to make sure Sheila remains free.  A stunned Steffy thinks Bill has absolutely lost his mind.

Finn gets his his cell phone to call the police.  Bill tells him he is not going to place that call and how could Finn live with himself putting his own mother behind bars?

Bill says he’s behaved so badly and caused so much hurt for the women in his life. Just then, Sheila puts her head on his shoulder. Bill says he’s moving on with someone he can’t hurt.  Steffy losses it even more!

Steffy shows Finn’s scar of where Sheila shot him.  But in a game of tit for tat, Bill and Sheila had a plan,  Sheila tells Bill to ‘turn’ she then lifts his shirt to reveal the scar from a gunshot wound. Steffy knows what that is from.  Sheila know is armed with the truth, because Bill told her, that Taylor shot him several years ago and he never turned her in. Bill says If Steffy and Finn go to the police, he will turn Steffy’s mother in for shooting him.  Of course, all of this happened before Finn was even in the picture, so he’s trying to figure out what everyone is talking about!  He doesn’t know how Steffy and Bill had an affair after Liam (Scott Clifton) made out with Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) and then later, how Taylor shot the guy! Stay tuned.

Watch the big reveal and how B&B plans to keep Sheila out of jail so she can cause more trouble for Steffy, Finn and company below.

Then let us know, do you like the twisted heel turn for Bill Spencer? Can you buy-in to this story? Do you think down the line it could be revealed he did this to keep Sheila in tow, since he believes she will always stay one step ahead of the law even if she wound up in prison?

We have now entered into Bizarro World! No words!!

Dec 16th episode begging Katie / Dec 28th he is Sheila’s sweetheart ! Total trash I am done and pray they cancel this crap

Interesting use of history (I’ll take the attempt), but Beth and Kelly are his granddaughters. No matter how hurt he is over Brooke/Katie, I can’t imagine he’d even allow for the *possibility* that his grandchildren would be Sheila’s victims. But maybe that’s the angle: he’s doing it for them more than himself.

How are they going to dig $Bill out of this mess? Steffy looks so hurt that he would do this. Bill turning on Steffy for Sheila is breaking my heart.

He’s got to be like a doppelganger and or robot. That is s not the Bill Spencer we know.

I missed watching this show because the power was out in my area. After reading MF’s summary I’m turning the power off on B&B. And Carly on GH. Plus I’m tired of all the guns and shootings on the soaps. And not just gangsters like Sonny. This includes Ava carrying her’s in her purse. What wrong with this country and it’s guns. Sick.

rose,
These are soaps, try not getting them mixed up with real life where there are worse things I don’t even want to list that are worse than ” guns and shootings”. There are also worse people on GH that are a lot worse than ” gangster Sonny”. How about his punk son Michael willing to see his father behind bars because he left his Mommy Dearest, that’s the main reason. It sure didn’t bother him all these years the way he made a living that provided everything he’s got now. Michael just makes me sick, he sees Willow dying right in front of his eyes and all he can think of is sticking it to Sonny. I want to see him suffer too but not at Willow’s expense. Sorry for the rant, Happy New Year!

Violet…I watch soaps to get away from a lot of real life. You know that old saying…romance in the afternoon. They are soooo far from that now, and the stories and characters we used to like and watch. No wonder there is viewer increase in Hallmark like shows.

rose
That was my escape years ago when married and raising a family. The Soaps which ran all day, saved my life, taking my mind off of my own unhappiness, so I know of where you speak. Sorry, the Hallmark stuff I just can’t stomach, see one you see them all.

Violet…I am sorry to hear those years were so unhappy for you. You are a survivor in more ways than one. It would be interesting to sit and have a cup of tea with each other, to compare notes, cry a little, laugh a little. As for Hallmark, if you knew my background and interests, I’d be the last person you would think would have watched H. To be quite frank, much of the new stuff is wearing on me. So I don’t watch as much. I pick and chose. But some of it in the beginning was fresh and new, and I needed it at the time. So let’s all click our glasses, and have a nice New Years. Rose

rose
Thanks for responding and I like the idea of the “tea party” but being so much older you probably would find me boring but yes, let’s raise our glasses, I do love Champagne ounce in a while, even at 90! A very happy and healthy New Year to you also.

THIS was the jolt Sheila’s story needed. I couldn’t see a way she could get out of the mess she’s in unless she went into hiding, but connecting Sheila and Bill is pure genius. Bill is at his best when he turns to the dark side, and the plot point of Taylor shooting Bill all those years ago has been completely forgotten until now.

This has actually been one of my biggest complaints since Krista Allen took over the role of Taylor… there has been zero mention of her “recovery” and past misdeeds. Now, it seems B&B is ready to revisit that story, and in a fantastic way. And it’s all the better that Finn is clueless about both the shooting and the affair, as it adds to the drama.

As for Bill, I just hope there’s an added layer to all of this that we’re unaware of, because it seems rather drastic to go from being rejected by Brooke and Katie to aligning himself with Sheila… I’d love some flashback scenes of how Bill and Sheila connected in the first place, and I can’t wait to see Deacon’s response to all of this!

Agreed!

Jimmy
I agree with a lot you’ve said. Bill just made me sick with all his carrying on about no one wanting him, my God what sane woman would? I was encouraged by Bill’s coming to Finn’s mother’s rescue but TPTB decided to go this way instead. Deacon looks like he’ll become a restaurateur in the future, it will be interesting to see who that will attract. Happy New Year Sir!

What a surprise when $Bill came to the door to rescue Sheila. Probably the only way to write her out of hiding. At least they had a previous storyline to fall back on. The show is getting very dark now unlike the nice Christmas episode. Brad has a great writing team and cast! Happy New Year to B&B and CBS Daytime. Expect No. 1 status soon—only 300k viewers away.

Cib
Surprise is an understatement but now his son’s have evidence to take to the Police, ha, ha. They have got to get rid of Sheila soon. She is so good she literally turns my stomach with her evil smile.

is deacon playing a bill double

Put Brad bell down like a rabid dog

God, will this never end? Just let Sheila go out and jump off the cliff!

This is sick, I’m going to stop watching show until this crazy stuff with Sheila and Bill is over with.

Jean Williams
I want to do the same but you know what they say about a train wreck. I’ve never thought Bill is an imposter, we all know what a selfish, self- centered person he is. Why do people think he’s an imposter?

I actually stopped watching the bold and beautiful because of Brooke and Ridge. I don’t think they should be together. She actually stole Ridge from Taylor in the beginning. I don’t like whiney Brooke. She always has an excuse for any and everything she has done intentionally or not. It is Taylor’s time to try and make him happy. So until that time comes I’m done with this soap. Oh and Thomas…
really does things out of the goodness of his heart, messed up as he does things but the outcome is the same.

I’m also tired of seeing Nina and Sonny together. It makes me sick.
Another soap I won’t be watching anymore

I need some long time viewers for this. I either wasn’t watching at that time or just don’t remember. I was watching some old videos and it was showing Stephanie and Eric getting remarried. I guess there was an involvement with Lauren Fenmore at the time and as the Pastor was reading the vows he found a photo of Eric and Lauren, in his Bible ,naked in bed. Lauren swore she didn’t do it and I believe her. Does anyone know who put that photo in the bible? Would appreciate an answer.

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
