THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Goes Over A Cliff! If He Survives, Will They Redeem Him?

Photo: JPI

Now here’s a ‘cliff’-hanger moment for a Friday soap, that brought with it what could be a game-changing moment, certainly for the relationship of Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), and what looks like for Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).  For months, Thomas had become more obsessed and unhinged over keeping Hope (Annika Noelle) from her child Beth and away from the man she truly loves, Liam (Scott Clifton).

Many of Thomas’ acts have been truly despicable.  But now after a wake-up call conversation with his son, Douglas, and an attempt to set things right with Hope, who wants nothing to do with him, things take a turn when at Steffy’s,  Hope screams at Thomas to stay away from her. He tries to explain he just wants to talk to her, but she wants nothing to do with him.

We then see Brooke making it to the house, and seeing the ensuing argument,  She fears the worse and becomes in-between her daughter and her stepson, as Ridgeis also heading to the house to make sure nothing happens between Thomas and Hope.

But then, in a push/pull moment, Thomas goes over the cliff.  Brooke is mortified. And from the promo for next week’s B&B, Thomas is unconscious and might not make it, as Ridge sits by his bedside.

So, what is this twist all about? Either, Thomas choreographed the fall to gain sympathy and knew exactly what he was doing, or it was an accident, that might look like an attempted murder for now, and that will cause trouble between Brooke and Ridge, but also, and perhaps through testing in the hospital it might reveal, Thomas had a brain tumor causing him to act erratically?  Or, could it be that on Friday’s episode Thomas truly had a quick come-to-Jesus moment and had already realized the horrors of his way and was truly trying to set things right?  Or, could someone sneak into hospital room and snuff him out with a pillow? Many theories!

Now watch below the final moments when Thomas takes a major tumble and next week’s promo for B&B.  Then, weigh-in: What do you think the show will do with the character of Thomas now? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Phyllis Newman survived a deadly fall. Drucilla Winters…not so lucky. Thomas was found. He’s still breathing. So there’s that. Dru was swallowed by a whale that swallowed a chair, a perpetually lit lantern, several books and years worth of sealed MRE’s. LOL.

I did not like Dru or the gal that played her.I was glad to see her go. I have liked Thomas over the years, even with his misdeeds, but they made us hate him this time around. When Brooke pushed him, all I could say was good! I would have done the same to protect my daughter.

Thanks for the smile, I think, but does it mean you agree or think I’m rotten for my comment?

Neither. Dru could be nerve wracking and Victoria Rowell even more exasperating with her constant off air on set diva act. Remember that whole Neil and Dru controversy she got going over a wedding dress Nikki married Victor in. LOL. But I definitely liked the character. And it was a mistake getting rid of her. If she wasn’t found then Sharon shouldn’t have been found either. I mistakenly said Phyllis. Oh well.

Actually meant Sharon.

I wish days had even a sliver of the b n b budget!$$$ If it was Salem , Thomas would ve fallen over the bush in that park past the horton square that no one else seems to use except the characters that tell out load secrets for others to eavesdrop on!
Wow. B n b still bringing those 80s big outdoor expensive shoots! Thank you to the ptb for making soaps still look good in 2019!

I dont disagree with you. There is no reason why soaps that shoot in LA can’t do day location shoots. They dont even have to travel and they dont have to haul large equipment anymore, with handheld cameras and such. But it would be nice if B and B would take some of that budget and hire a headwriter who knows how to write coherent stories, or…stories even. ANY kind of story. This show is just an endless merry go round of near incest triangles that ultimately go nowhere.

Ha Ha To be fair, the house is owned by Brad Bell so he may be letting them film there for free or at a reduced price. And I think since B&B is a half hour, they can do more location shoots (smaller cast).

It looked like Brooke pushed Thomas over the cliff. This will push Brooke and Ridge apart. Where is Taylor???!!! Maybe the conk on his head will “right” Thomas.

Have not been watching DNB for long but do not know of all of Thomases miss deeds. Started watching when him and Caroline and Rich realized Dunkel us was it. Then they recast Thomas with the person I do not like and he’s doing all these horrific things that I do not think our old Thomas would have done.

Sorry for all the miss spellings. No I meant BNB and that I meant Ridge and Douglas.

Thomas tried to blow Rick up in the past. Then he slept with Caroline when she was basically out of it from sleeping pills or something. He does have shady dealings in his past.

The character is so creepy.

Grand Hotel

GRAND HOTEL Finale: How Sky Died, Paternity Game-Changer, And Another Mystery Begins

ABC’s Grand Hotel ended its season with several plot twists that kept the hour soapy drama in a fast and furious pace to give viewers the answers they had been waiting for, and if the show was picked-up, a cliffhanger with multiple suspects who could be responsible for this new crime.

If you have not watched the finale and intend to, do not read any further, spoilers contained herein:

Danny is finally revealed to Santiago and Gigi to be the brother of the deceased Sky.  Alicia decides to help Danny figure out what happened to his sister on the night she died in the hurricane.  Through flashbacks, we learn that Sky discovered the suicide note that Beatriz had written inside a closet full of jewelry while on a date with Yoli.  Sky used the Intel in it to blackmail Gigi, but Gigi says she does not have access to that kind of cash.   The letter contains the damaging proof that Mrs P and Santiago had a child together, Jason.  Santiago did not know.  To make matters even worse in current time, Santiago just made Gigi’s daughters: Carolina and Yoli part of his new will.

It seems that Mrs. P and Gigi kept the secret of Jason’s paternity and did not want to come out.  Helen put the hotel on lockdown, leaving Sky trapped and having to go through the only available exit to get out of the hotel, which led her into the night and the hurricane.  There, Gigi confronts her at gunpoint. However, there is a scuffle, and lo and behold, Mrs. P husband’s, Malcolm steps out of the shadows after overhearing that his wife had an fling and child with Santiago and clubbed Sky in the back causing her death.

After Gigi admitted to Santiago, while he was trying to push Danny over the hotel balcony, that she did not kill Sky, Gigi eventually reveals who it was, leading Danny and Alicia to later head to the hospital where Malcolm is dying.  Alicia confronts Mrs. P about her lies and how she hid Jason’s paternity from him and Santiago.  Meanwhile, Danny decides not to tell Malcolm’s family that he killed his sister, because as Danny says, “the universe had already found another way to punish him” – and with that – a few moments later, Malcolm dies.

Now that Santiago had learned that he is the bio-dad of Jason, he won’t forgive Gigi, who clearly does not want Jason getting more of the pie than her daughters if Santiago were to have the opportunity to adjust his will.  Meanwhile, Santiago has finally blackmailed Mateo out of his job at the hotel, but Mateo does not want the evidence on the flash drive Santiago has in his possession to come out of the deed that he has done.  Mrs P. also gets into a very intense phone conversation with Santiago and they agree to meet downstairs at the hotel.

However, as Santiago walks through the dark halls, out of the shadows gun shots are fired, and he is left bleeding out on the floor.  Did Gigi, Mateo, Helen or even someone else shoot him?  Maybe Carolina and Yoli’s father is the culprit, who is said to be returning home after finding out his daughters are now in Santiago’s will and who has no love lost for the guy!

In other stories, Javi was seduced by an older woman who turned out to be an alcoholic and Ingrid’s mother, a pissed Ingrid then hooks up with Mateo.  And  finally, as Danny goes to the ocean to say goodbye to his sister Sky by throwing her lighter into the sea, Alicia asks, what he is going to do next?  He says, he will return home to Chicago, but at that point the two of them share a passionate kiss.

Throughout the episode, the emotional heart of it was played to perfection by Lincoln Younes as Danny, who as the brother trying to avenge his sister’s death, played all the beats of his story arc.

So, what did you think of the Grand Hotel finale? What did you think of who was revealed to have killed Sky? Who do you think shot Santiago? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Franco Looks In The Mirror … And Believing He Is Drew Kisses Kim

This week on General Hospital, viewers have seen that when Franco (Roger Howarth) awoke from his mind-mapping implantation  (thanks to Shiloh and Dr Cabot) he woke up saying that he is “Drew Cain”.  Thus, as far we know, Franco now carries the life and memories of Drew from 2012 and back, and as of now, has no trace of Franco’s memories.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) and Drew (Billy Miller) try to make Franco understand in his confusion what transpired,  Liz brings a mirror to Franco to see his face, which makes this all the more terrifying for him.  Liz insists to him that she is wife, but he tells her that he is sorry but he does not recognize her.  Franco insists he is going to leave town and Drew asks him to please stay put, as Liz promises that they can reverse what happened to him.  But can Liz really promise that?

Later, Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) fills Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) in on what happened and how Franco now was implanted with Drew’s memories, which leaves them stunned.  That means Franco, who is one of the people Jason loathes most in the world – now believes he is Jason’t twin brother.

Meanwhile, as Kim (Tamara Braun) and Julian (William deVry) prepare to leave Port Charles for Manhattan and start live anew, (so Kim can not be haunted by her life in Port Charles from the recent death of her son, Oscar) things are about to make a shocking turn … for her.

Back at GH, Liz is upset when Franco decides he must get out of his hospital room.  Liz is scared he will just skip town knowing he feels he has no ties there.  Drew reassures her that because he is a version of him, the pull will be way too strong for him to exit Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

Kim is now at the hospital getting ready to turn in her resignation letter and runs into Franco.  He recognizes her and calls her “Kim!” You can tell he is quite smitten with her.  Kim is not sure why Franco is acting that way.  She announces she is leaving Port Charles to which he says he is going to come with her. She sees he has a hospital ID bracelet on, so she thinks something has happened.  Just then, Franco tells her about the first time Drew Cain and her met up! This shocks Kim  … and the next thing you know … he moves in for a major kiss and lip-lock as Drew and Liz look on.
