The Bold and the Beautiful’s Tanner Novlan on Sheila’s Death: “Normally, Finn Would Be Right There with Steffy and Helping Her Through It, But Someone Needs to Help Finn Through This.”

This past week, viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful watched in shock as Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) was stabbed and eventually died, when Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in self-defense plunged a knife into the supervillain.

According to all accounts, for now, Kimberlin Brown has exited the series, leaving fans in disbelief. Many believe it’s a set-up against Steffy, and Sheila has not really met her maker. At the epicenter of the story is also Tanner Novlan (Finn). In key moments, it appears that Finn blames his wife for his biological mother’s death, which sends him reeling and not comforting his wife.

Instead, he runs out of the cliff house and goes to Deacon’s (Sean Kanan) where he sits in devastation, only at the end of Friday’s episode to be comforted by none other than Hope (Annika Noelle). All leading to speculation that Finn and Hope are about to hook up. Tanner appeared on the newest episode of Bold Live after the week’s episodes where he fielded questions from callers on what inquiring B&B fans want to know.

During the call-in show, Novlan addressed if he thinks or knows if Sheila is actually alive. He responded, “Who knows? It is the soap world, but we definitely had to say goodbye to Kimberlin at work and that was really tough and really sad.”

While fans love their ‘Sinn’, Tanner agreed that they are seemingly an enduring couple, but the death of Finn’s mom will challenge them in a whole new way as his core values are tested. “I don’t think anyone wants to see ‘Sinn’ go away. They have one of the best relationships in soaps. It’s really interesting to see all of these different elements thrown at them and the them survive and how they battle through it,” he explained. “With this recent reaction it was different than the other ones, and the challenges they faced. I think it’s a moment where Finn is really rocked, and you’re right, his values, we know them. That is what is so great in playing him, in that, he has such great, true honest values.”

When getting the scripts in which Finn points the finger at Steffy for his mother’s death and does not comfort her, Novlan shared his reaction, “In this moment he (Finn) is having a really hard time, mentally, which I think as an actor when I read that I was like, ‘Why isn’t he standing by his wife? What’s going on? This is not like him.’ This is something deep in him that has been triggered and he’s going to have to figure that out.” Tanner added, “Normally, Finn would be right there with Steffy and helping her through it, but someone needs to help Finn through this.”

All leading to what fans saw on Friday’s episode. Hope comforted Finn in his grief. While Novlan is not giving anything away, he told a caller, about a potential Finn/Hope pairing that, “Finn would have to battle Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), and that might be a mountain to climb. I think Finn just needs someone to talk to. That relationship feels platonic to me.”

Watch the entire episode of BOLD Live featuring Novlan below.

Now let us know, do you think Hope and Finn will hit the sheets? Will Steffy and Finn ultimately divorce only to reunite down the line? Will Sheila come back alive and well, once Steffy is locked up behind bars for her “murder”? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I appreciated the Bold Live interviewed, particularly when Tanner clarified that Finn isn’t blaming Steffy for Sheila’s death; he’s simply undergoing an out-of-body experience and he, himself, is traumatized. It is notable how there is always this insistent that Finn needs to be supporting Steffy, but it is equally important to consider who is there for Finn when he needs support.

I truly feel that this storyline for Finn is contrived and completely out of character, however, Tanner Novlan’s portrayal of the role is commendable, showcasing his talent in bringing depth and drawing viewers in with his compelling portrayal and emotional resonance. His dedication and skill elevate this story.

Tanner is a sexy dude, his acting has improved. Love him so much, eye candy lol.

I dont like how this is playing out. Especially, Finn and Hope and Deacon. It contradicts prior conversations. I’m going to stop watching for a couple of months and hope this ridiculous storyline is over

The only saving grace is when his real mother Li goes off on him I can’t wait to hear about that I hope she rips that punk apart

Personally Sheila has expired a long time ago and the fact Brad bell is doing this story is sick Taylor no where to be seen stupid Hope saying oh steffy did it on purpose pathetic writing and Finn crying like a pathetic child and to top it off I’m all for pathetic Liam

So slap that picture back on the wall and kick Finn to the curb ! I have no sympathy for him he is disturbed a loser

Taylor needs to come a help him.

Get rid of the damn bloody rug! How can Finn be expected to stand there looking at that???? The whole thing appeared to happen in an hour or less! And yes, Sheila did what she did but my God, the berating she took from Steffy & even Brooke-screaming in her face about how she will NEVER EVER SEE her son or grandson, etc., no good, never be a part of the family, etc. before the shooting incident. You don’t poke a bear Steffy! Remember when Taylor had her over for Christmas? And she was nice?

Let it to Hope to pick up Steffys leftovers! She’s gonna set off Thomas once again. Crap stay with you man, Haope!

Finn, and Stephanie are a beautiful couple.Now that this as happen here comes Liam which is ridiculous..Of course Finn is in shocked because he is such a good person…I am not feeling this story line…I will take break if this goes in the Liam & Stephanie direction.

I know for a fact that sheila is still alive the woman that Steffy killed was her look alike she wants to get rid of Steffy so she can be in Finn life and Hays life as well at first I was mad and not going to watch Bold and the beautiful anymore because it’s getting crazy too broke up the two most love ❤️ couple is so crazy but this takes the cake

Well, if you are right and a lot of people are agreeing with you, we’re right back where we started from. I guess I can stop watching again, I’d thought Sheila was gone for good, but so many viewers can’t be wrong, the bitch is still alive and that’s it for me.

I think she is still alive and will be back like Arnold
