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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.

It’s clear she wants a second chance at being Peter’s mother and can’t see past that. With that, the duo is at a crossroads. Finn goes to get his daughter, Violet and packs a bag and moves of their place and heads to the Metro Court for the night.  He tells Anna he has to protect his daughter.  Of course, when they get to the Metro Court, they run into Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Finn is not happy.   Will Anna and Finn reconcile? Will Peter finally, finally get his comeuppance?

Y&R’s Sharon Case Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Standalone, dream or nightmare-centric episodes on your favorite soaps, require the audience to go along for the ride and also require the actor who is featured in it to make the material work – no matter if some of it may come off as cheesy, or may be over-dramatic, or seemingly out there.

On Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, longtime vet, Sharon Case (Sharon) was front and center in an episode that had her in almost every single scene, and performing via clever ways the writing team told the story of a woman preparing for her first round of chemo in her battle with breast cancer.  Throughout the show, Y&R made sure that many key beats of the feelings anyone about to go under this treatment, or anyone about to embark on major surgery, or a potential life-changing moments would feel.   In moment after moment, Sharon Case gave one of the finest performances of her storied Y&R career.

It begins with her beau, Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) trying to be there for her as Sharon kind of skirts the emotional toll of what tomorrow will bring for her, and how she is dreading the entire experience.  When Rey prompts her to talk about what’s in her heart. Sharon’s afraid if she opens up, she’ll scream and won’t be able to stop.  She admits she is terrified but won’t let herself go there.   Not wanting him to touch her or she will break down, Sharon decides to sleep upstairs, while Rey sleeps on the couch.

And that is where the dream begins, as a restless Sharon sees her dead daughter, Cassie, (Camryn Grimes reprises her role) who tells her: “I need you to come with me.”  When she won’t Cassie;s outreached hand, which Sharon believes will lead her to heaven, she runs downstairs to find Rey, but he is gone.  Since this is her dream, she next winds up at Crimson Lights where she learns Rey dumped her and left town for Miami, while Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) scoffs that no one would want to be with her like this!  Next, Nick appears and takes Phylllis out on a date, leaving Sharon upset.

Switch to next scenario: and as Sharon sees doctors beginning surgery on her, and she finds herself in the set of GC Buzz, as her other daughter, Mariah hosts an episode about how Sharon changed after her surgery!  Nick,Phyllis and Rey are it, spouting how negative Sharon was, and how she changed.  Then, Sharon becomes hysterical as she sees herself flatline. She screams at the doctors to not just leave her there … alone!

Next, Sharon shows up at the Grand Phoenix, as none other than Phyllis escorts her to radiation therapy. Mariah (Camryn Grimes). who shows up with a cane for her, brings her a mirror, and as Sharon holds it up, she sees she is wearing a headscarf as she must have lost all of her hair in the chemo.  Faith (Alyia Alyn Lind) runs on to the scene, and Cassie reappears and tells Sharon: “Mom, it’s time. It’s time to go home. Please don’t be afraid.”

Finally, Sharon is in the present and sees that Mariah and Rey are downstairs and she promises to not shut them out.  She tells them about her dream with Cassie and how the cancer has made her feel isolated.   Sharon comes to the conclusion. and promises. she will let the people she loves know that she needs them.  When she reveals she’s hungry, food is whipped up, as Nick and Faith come by to join them.

In the final moments, (grab your hankies), Sharon had a request that her daughters sleep next to her for the night.  We see Faith, and Mariah on each side of Sharon as Cassie watches upon them.

Kudos to Sharon Case for playing the vulnerability of a woman about to undergo chemo, the nuances of every scene she was called on to portray within the dream sequences, and for delivering it in such a way that was respectful, enlightening, and powerful for anyone undergoing something as difficult as this in their own lives.  For all of these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Sharon Case, this week’s “Power Performance of the Week”.

THE BACHELOR: A Telenovela & Four Contestants Sent Packing

It seems like Peter Weber, our “Bachelor”, finally got a clue, and wasn’t going to continue to be wishy-washy…. or will he fall back into his old ways? Wednesday night brought “Bachelor Nation”, yet another two-hour episode of The Bachelor, following its usual Monday installment.

Picking up in Chile, Victoria P. dug her own grave and was sent to home, after lying about knowing Alayah prior to being on the reality-competition series.  When she goes to talk with Peter about trying to get back on track with him, he lowers the boom on her and says: “I don’t know if I see you as my wife.”  Victoria P. loses it and wants to get in a limo and drive away ASAP.  Once in the car, she looks straight in the camera with tears and mascara dripping down her face.

For Telenovela and soap fans, the episode came with the gals and Peter performing a script to a soap opera, Latin America-style.  Mykenna got the role of the maid, the one who was constantly ignored, but longed for her man. Mykenna said she can play the part, because that is how it feels right now with Peter.  He doesn’t really see her, or spend much time with her versus the other women in the competition.

Later, when alone with the other women in the competition, after previously saying she was ready to walk from the show, Mykenna now said she is having the time of her life. Cue Tammy who stirs up trouble for everyone, by calling people out on things they say or do; whether true or not true. This time Tammy and Mykenna get into a yelling match over Mykenna’s true intentions.  Peter, who is outside with Madison on a one-on-one dare, hears the screaming.  They exit to be alone.

Next, in a twist, Peter invites Tammy and Mykena on a two-on-one date.  After hearing each of their sides of the story, Peter gives the boot to Tammy. Later, in the event that she was lying, he gave Mykenna the boot too!

There was one more contestant that needed to go, so Peter also did not give a rose to Sydney. Remember, she  told Peter how she was bullied and made fun of growing up while in High School, because of her mixed-race background.  This week, photos surfaced of her on social media showing that she was a beauty pageant winner, when she was in High School – thus trying to say she must have been very popular to be saying she was so isolated growing up.

Victoria F. who also went on a one-on-one date with Peter for the second time, still seems confused if she wants to be there.  Peter says he genuinely has feelings for her, but she seems to be acting as if she is not sure. Peter wants to make sure she really wants to be here, when she says she doesn’t like the thought of him with the other women in the competition.  Remember, earlier this week, “Cosmo” revealed they took her and Peter off the digital cover of their magazine, because of former photos of her  modeling for “White Lives Matter”  Fuller said on her Instagram that “The company ‘We Love Marlins’ is in support of catching white, blue & black marlins and releasing them back into the wild,” which is what the “White Lives Matter” slogan meant to her and the company.

So are you glad that Tammy, Mykenna, Sydney and Victora P. all went home? Comment below.
