THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thorsten Kaye & John McCook Bring The Drama As Eric Tells Ridge: "You'll Never Be My Son Again"

Courtesy/CBS

If you caught Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful you witnessed a beautifully written-scene and two standout performances from daytime vets, Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and John McCook (Eric).

In the scenes, Ridge is trying to make amends to his father, and to get him away from the rather seedy hotel he is holed up in with none other than Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).  But when Ridge visits Eric things take a devastating turn.

Eric questions Ridge, who admits he has left the Forrester mansion property, if he took Quinn with him?  Ridge says he doesn’t understand why Eric is in this hotel when he still loves Quinn. Then things take a nosedive when Ridge comes forward that he wanted to screw over Eric for demoting him in the company and naming Steffy CEO, and that Quinn was a pawn in all of this for him,.

Eric revisits their father/son rivalry and  history, and how Ridge began to compete with him taking all the women he ever loved, because he could.  Then in a “Godfather-esque” kiss-off, Eric grabs Ridge’s head in his hands and says, “I loved being your father.  You’ll never be my son again.”

Tears are streaming down Ridge’s cheeks as he realizes he has lost the man who has been his dad all of these years even though he was born Ridge Marone.   When he exits, even Sheila shows some signs off deep emotion torn up by the confrontation she has just witnessed, and is welling-up in tears, also.

Kaye and McCook played the beats to perfection. Watch the moment after the jump. Then, let us know what you thought of Eric disowning Ridge? Was it a long time coming? Did you enjoy the performances of Thorsten and John? Comment below.

I hope these actors remember this reel come awards season. Both ABSOLUTELY Emmy worthy.

The tears flowing from Ridge- the look in his eyes-Sheila crying-oh my goodness. This show never fails to deliver-one minute utter shock, horrified, laughing, crying- this has become my favorite show and I embrace it and adore it and excellent actors and on and on. Love it. Thanks.

I couldn’t believe what I was watching , today

there was “Ridge” Thorsten Kaye acting all rico suave avante garde TELLING “Dad” that’s all it takes… he can do any thing any time to any one

I kept thinking… Eric Forester.. isn’t even biologically his father… wasn’t that supposed to be Joseph Mascolo… whomever he played ?

NO ONE.. no matter how rich and famous… shows so little disregard

this was spit in Eric face

I truly liked Eric and Quinn… guess that has been quashed. John McCook is ALL that

It doesn’t matter if Eric isn’t Ridge’s biological father. He is still Ridge’s father.

Eric made reference to times in his “speech” when he would call Ridge Mascole(?), as a dig to him not being Eric’s biological son. But he raised him, so that’s why he said he loved being his father. Awesome scene.

Every so often a soap has scene that reminds me why I love the genre so much and this was one of them. No evil twin, no mob gunfight, no mad scientist or plane crash can EVER hold a candle to the simple brilliance of well written and acted scene from the heart for sheer drama and emotional stab in the heart. That scene was Shakespearean — the only drawback is because it is a soap, Eric will eventually forgive Ridge– because Eric has disowned him before — so there was a part of me that was right in the… Read more »

I’ve felt for a long time that Thorsten Kaye is an underrated, underappreciated actor, and he was excellent in these scenes. John McCook was very good, too. But what took me out of the moment were two things. First, I know that on B&B, someone being disowned lasts for about a month and not much longer, just as Ridge calling Brooke his destiny lasted about two weeks before he was making out with Quinn. The words are said, but this show changes on a dime. So big deal, Eric disowned Ridge. They’ll be family again in another month or so.… Read more »

I gained respect for Thorsten with those big beautiful eyes turning on the waterworks. Excellent observations.

I can’t remember a more riveting, powerful scene. I rewound and watched again. Emmy for John McCook, please.

I just can’t get invested in too much that occurs on B&B because the show always hits reset and goes back to the formula that works for it. Ridge steals Eric’s wife…Eric declares it the end of their relationship…Eric and Ridge reunite and are stronger than ever. Back in the day soaps understood that people held grudges and some things were just unforgivable and those emotions drove story. Today’s scribes find it easier to have characters forgive the transgressions committed against them only to suffer again and again at the hands of the same person which only makes the characters… Read more »

Loved it. The betrayal by Ridge not once but a few times (I didn’t watch back then but I heard about Ridge luring Brooke too from Eric) is unforgivable. And, yet, I actually do hope Eric forgives him at some point. The family dynamics, their bond, is what makes this show so warm, even with all the entanglements. Eric’s hurt is so deep and so justified. I would think there is no coming back from this. How would he ever be able to trust Ridge again; I don’t think Ridge trusts himself. This will divide family loyalties in all directions.… Read more »

Oh my gosh, I just finished watching Thursday’s episode…WONDERFUL and SUPERB acting and gut wrenching drama and the way it daytime drama or any drama should be…Absolutely LOVED IT…I love this kind of writing…John, Thorsten and Kimberlin, hat’s off to all 3 of you and to Brad Bell for the excellent writing…Keep up the GREAT work.

John McCook did the best work of his career in that episode! WOW!! Honestly, I don’t think Kimberlin Brown was supposed to cry in that scene. I think she was so overcome by watching John Thorsten do their scene.

Just when I was debating on whether or not I should take a break from the show after Bill’s ridiculous lie, I come across this scene and once again I am hooked. Although I was never fonof this Ridge, both actors stepped up to the plate and gave award winning perfrmances. I am looking forward to see how this story plays out.

This show has mostly been hitting homeruns all year. The return of Sheila has been an injection of greatness. I love Eric and Quinn together, so hope they can find their way back. Currently, I do not love Bill being ruthless toward Sally. The Zende/Nicole storyline was so rushed and forgotten within a month, it felt like it was an attempt to give the actors some dialogue. I would like to see Rick Forrester become more of a ruthless player again. He has been standing on the sidelines too long.

Overall, this show is soap opera perfection.

I agree with you Ray…it’s my favorite soap at the time then Y&R…No longer watching GH or DOOL…but I do turn in every now and then.

BTW, the writing and the feel of B&B is what Y&R once was and I feel that Y&R is much better since Sally and Kay have return even though some people don’t agree.. I feel if Y&R would get back the classic background music and some rich gut wrenching story lines then Y&R will be back 100%…
