THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Wakes Up; Liam Wants To Confess All to Hope

Photo: JPI

On Friday’s episode of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, fans were left pondering a few key questions heading into next week.

Now that Thomas (Mathew Arkinson) has regained consciousness and seems to have remembered kissing his favorite mannequin – the Hope mannequin – will he have any more brain trauma from his emergency surgery? What will be the residual effects?  Could the show go down the selective amnesia route?

Will Thomas be A-OK … and now Hope (Annika Noelle) and Thomas will be drawn to each other in reality; especially when Hope gets wind their husband, Liam (Scott Clifton) hightailed it over to his ex-wife Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) place and had sex with her … after believing that Hope was making out with Thomas … only to find out later what he saw was Thomas kissing the mannequin version of her?

 

After Thomas wakes up in the hospital, Steffy decides to head home to her daughter, Kelly, and Liam follows her out, which does not go unnoticed by Ridge (Thorsten Kaye). Has he figured out that the two had sex?

Later, when  Liam and Steffy talk at her place, she is adamant that he not reveal their tryst to Hope for fear it will also bust up her burgeoning relationship with Finn (Tanner Novlan).  However, headstrong Liam says he cannot live with this secret and that secrets have a way of being exposed if you don’t address them head on.  Steffy still feels it will be the absolute wrong move and it will certainly be the end of Liam’s marriage to Hope.  However, Liam says he has to tell his wife.

This also begs the question, with Jacqueline MacInnes Wood pregnant in real life; will the show ultimately write-in the pregnancy and we would not know if the child is Finn or Liam’s?

So, what do you ‘hope’ happens next?  Are you rooting for Hope and Thomas?  Do you want Thomas to be fine, or prefer him acting-out crazy?  Are you rooting for Steffy to be with Finn or wind up back with Liam? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I couldn’t have said it better myself. If he could only shut his mouth foe five minutes I would be very happy. He just re hashes the same thing over and over. Enough already!

I totally agree! He goes on and on and makes the same stupid mistakes. They put the character of Rick on the back-burner. Maybe it is time to do the same with Liam.

Agree, but seems that is where this is heading… Where is Bill? Where is Katie? Wasn’t Bridget supposed to be returning? Glad Eric is reconnecting with Quinn. And why did they not contact Taylor while Thomas was in the hospital. The writing of this soap would probably be better if they actually acknowledged the global pandemic in their storylines since we don’t see any of the cast other than those who would be in family pods. The mannequin situation is gross.

Have you forgotten Ridge and Bridget kissing remember Rick has been romantically involved with Phoebe Steffy and was engaged to Taylor when Kyle Lowder was in the role. Then Brooke and Thomas were hinted at maybe having a relationship years ago. I am sure I have missed some Brad Bell geeze is all I can say!

They should rename the snow Incest Among the Beautiful. They were suppose to give Donna A story as well. Instead they just focus on the usuals. Ridiculous

I don’t understand how this show stays afloat! I watch a couple of times a week to Liam singing the blues of his recent infidelity. He should just tell Hope to make himself feel better and the hell with what it does to three other lives and families. How damn selfish can some people be? While truthfulness is a good thing , sometimes it’s better for everyone involved to withhold something that would be so hurtful to so many people.

What is with Zoe? Can’t stand her persona, looks, everything about her. And where did she or anyone else get the idea that she can sing? The sister sings really well, and what does Zoe have against her younger sister besides jealousy of her and Zendie’s mutual attraction?

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
