THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas’ Voice-Changing Plot Revealed; Ridge Kicks Brooke to the Curb

Courtesy/CBS

It’s dump on Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) time, yet again, on The Bold and the Beautiful. This comes after yet another round of machinations and misunderstandings, which for now means its ‘splitsville’ for long-standing star-crossed lovers, Brooke and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye).

In Wednesday’s pick-up from Tuesday’s cliffhanger, where we learn that Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) is the one who called CPS and alternated his voice to sound like Brooke’s – thanks to the handy dandy voice-changing app – viewers are let in on the back-story of just how Thomas pulled of his plot.

Thomas first learned of the app when his son, Douglas (the returning Henry Joseph Samiri) was using it, giving the often troublemaking Forrester just the right idea to blow up Brooke’s marriage to Ridge sky high, send Ridge back to his mom, Taylor (Krista Allen), and get payback for Brooke wanting Douglas to stay from away from him in the first place.

Snarky as ever, Thomas recalls in flashbacks how he made Brooke’s voice sound like the caller to CPS.

Meanwhile in Aspen, Brooke is dumb-founded and clueless of what she did for Ridge to be treating her this way – and, of course – he won’t state why he is so upset with her, but keeps playing over and over hearing her voice calling CPS against his son.

Once, Ridge officially ends things with Brooke and walks away from her, Brooke sits outside and is visited by a gloating Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).  She informs Brooke it’s now her mother’s time with her father, and her time is over with Ridge.

Ridge meets up with Taylor and reassures her that he is with her now.

So, how happy or frustrated are you to find out that Thomas engineered Brooke’s downfall? Didn’t Brooke just spend months wondering how she fell off the wagon and that was all done to spite her by a vengeful Sheila (Kimberlin Brown? Weigh-in via the comment section, but first check out two major moments from the last two episodes of B&B below.

Let Ridge stay with his second choice and his demented children, who truly need to get a life.

I agree Ridge doesn’t deserve Brook please don’t let her go back to him when Thomas is exposed.

Ridge may be the most arrogant obnoxious character in daytime along with Sonny Corinthos this storyline is as frustrating as the day is long. I do hope that when the truth comes out Brooke never takes ridge back as for Thomas in this actors shoes he’s play Thomas as a spoiled unstable hack and steffy and her scene with Brooke was ridiculous is she kidding me Brooke should have told her to get a life

I would say to Steffy as I would in real life ” go to hell bitch!”
Did you see the Real Estate man lurking around when Ridge and Brooke were talking? I bet he’ll report back to Bill and he’ll be ready to rescue her.

Yes, he did. Bill is knocking on the door as Katie said he would. The whole story line is sick.

Well, at the end of the day Ridge will want Brooke. They should bring her a fresh new love to the show. This is getting old.

Predictable plot twist
Would ve been much better if Steffy was behind it or even Douglas after overhearing Brooke!
Also sidenote B n B often has dialogue which really dumbs down the audience. Every episode the writing is so repetitive as if we didn’t understand even before it was explained extremely thoroughly.
Still enjoy the lightness of it but also very annoying the childness of it. Bill Bell Jr needs to stop phoning it in

This story is tired. Please let Brooke move on from Ridge. Bill Spencer is by far sexier and more vibrant a character. Perfect match for Brooke who now has evolved. The Forresters have not. The family has little in way of redeeming qualities and to be honest, they are all too old to behave this way. Each has been badly behaved. Stephanie gave Brooke agency when she passed. For goodness sake, let Brooke have it. At 60ish, Brooke is too mature and has achieved too much to be victim here. What the heck does Ridge even do? The show needs… Read more »

I want Ridge and Brooke together. Taylor should pack her bags and leave LA for good.

If she do, who’s gonna fight with Brooke and prop her up, gotta have someone to hate as much as you love Brooke the person that does no wrong or quickly get redeemed for whatever she does, because Bell is obsessed with Katherine Kelly Lang

Anything that can get Brooke kicked to the curb is fine by me. Do us all a favor, Brad Bell and stop the “destiny” nonsense.

Hard to watch when you know how it will end, same thing over and over again……..Ridge and Brooke are a super boring couple and this story just tanked.

I like Ridge and Brook together, but BILL, ain’t called the Stallion for nothing, plus Brook is a much more secure and passionate woman than Taylor. When Ridge comes running back (and he will) she should send him RIGHT BACK to Taylor and his conniving sneaky as children. …Ridge and Taylor are both weak and deserve each other.

I felt sorry for Thomas, everyone trying to keep his son from him. Now to find out what the creep has done and the lengths h’d go to see his mommy and daddy back together makes me sick.what a piece of crap he turned out to be. I bet he’ll lure Hope to Eric’s house so she can be with Douglas and himself.

Patricia
Guest

Hope has been sleeping in the Forrester’s home so that she can spend time with Douglas. Trust me, she has a game plan, but Thomas does not know. He thinks the ball is in his court. So does his mom and sister. It’s a matter of time when their world will fall apart. And Ridge will return to Brooke.

Thomas has never forgiven Brooke for “destroying” Ridge and Taylor’s marriage when he was a child.

Hope Ridge stays with Taylor, I’m so sick of Brook and her destiny crap and her saintly acting daughter Hope.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

Courtesy/WWE

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Courtesy/WWE

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

Photo: ABC

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.
