The Bold and the Beautiful Trends on ‘X’ after Finn Puts His Hand in Sheila’s Blood

Photo: JPI

We got to give it up for fans of The Bold and the Beautiful, who during and after the CBS daytime drama series aired its Thursday, February 29th, took to X (formerly Twitter) to let their feelings be known on what they just witnessed. B&B is still trending on the social media platform as of this posing

In story, Finn (Tanner Novlan) is reeling from Sheila’s (Kimberlin Brown) death. He seems more pre-occupied that he lost his mother (who previously shot him, and his wife Steffy, and kept him hostage for months and separated from his family) than he is his wife. Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is also in shock and upset that she had to act in self-defense when Sheila broke into their home and was there to harm her.

The end of the line for Sheila came when Steffy stabbed the supervillain and is now presumed dead; after the paramedics and the cops arrived on the scene. (That is if you believe everyone who showed up from the first responders is legit.)

At the cliff house, Finn becomes emotional over the thought of something happening to Steffy or the kids. Steffy tells Finn that she truly thought Sheila was going to shoot her.

Finn fires back, “So you plunged a knife into her?” Steffy explains she had to protect herself, and that she is “sorry!” Finn snarls, “You’re sorry? You’re sorry for killing my mom?”

Next, in what can only be defined as Finn showing his ‘inner-Sheila’ he walks over to the blood stained carpet. He kneels down and touches it and put his hand it it, and cries.

A startled Steffy says, “What are you doing?” With his blood-soaked hand, Finn stands up and as Steffy steps toward him to attempt to comfort him, he backs away. In the tag of the episode, Finn says to Steffy, “My mom’s blood is on my hand. And yours, Steffy.”

Meanwhile, Hope (Annika Noelle) is flummoxed when she learned from Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) that Sheila died when Steffy in self-defense grabbed a knife and stabbed her. Hope’s first reaction was, “Does Finn know?! Does Finn know that Steffy killed his birth mom?!” Many a viewer believes this is all leading to Hope ‘comforting’ Finn.

Take a look below and just some of the gifs, memes and comments that are making The Bold and the Beautiful still trend on X today below.

Now let us know, what did you think of Finn’s reaction to Sheila’s death, his blood-stained hands and how he seems to be blaming Steffy for his mother’s death? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Sugar’s blood.

Who is Sugar? I’ve heard this name a couple of times, but I do not know any of the background. Is Sugar a twin of Sheila or some other person from the past? I’d really appreciate it if you can LMK if there is a history. Thanks!

Yes, we all know where Bradley is taking this. A hook up with Hope and Finn and Liam comforting Steffy – GEEZ!!! So tired of the musical chairs with this show! Hope can’t really talk, because she was quite nasty to Sheila at the restaurant and basically told Deacon to give up Sheila or he wouldn’t see her or his grandchildren again.

B&B isn’t very well written. No guiding star shines over LA. Sheila was a villain. Her actions were beyond redemption. That there should be repercussions for Steffy for this insane. And after all we endured for Hope yo get with Thomas, we now have to face a plot line putting her and Finn together? Does no one have a conscience, character, or fortitude? I have never been able to feel emotion with this show as I have with other dramas. Everyone is so stupid! I keep thinking it will get better.

Keep and they will eventually kiss

Steffy killed her in self defense. You need to worry about your wife not your lunatic

Total U turn for the character of Finn this is crazy the stuff Brad Bell does.

The story is absurd and in the process character assassinating Finn, and yet I don’t see an inner-Sheila from Fin; he’s just in shock, grieving, and traumatized. Tanner Novlan is doing wonderful work with this material. He definitely should be upped for an Emmy nomination next year.

Tanner’s got more talent than any of the other male actors, except Deacon maybe.. Ridge acts like he’s mentally not there. He just stands and looks at the person who’s talking to him, can’t even answer them.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Lauren Gives Deacon an Earful About Sugar

On Friday’s April 19th episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) and Deacon (Sean Kanan) make a stunning realization, and viewers of the CBS soap opera can also give themselves a round of applause for figuring out the mystery surrounding (Kimberlin Brown) Sheila’s ‘death’, or at least a part of it.

At Il Giardino, Lauren and Deacon are getting into a heated exchange over Sheila. Going over the events that transpired with Lauren, Deacon tells her what he saw in the crematorium when the sheet lifted up revealing that the deceased person had ten toes, not nine as Sheila had.

Then, Deacon asks a freaked out Lauren, what she knows about Sugar? He reveals, “Sheila was texting with her before she went to Steffy’s.” Deacon begs Lauren to tell him. Lauren says the Sugar she knows couldn’t possibly be texting Sheila or anyone else for that matter because she’s in jail.

A reluctant Lauren finally tells Deacon what she knows about the sordid backstory of Sheila and Sugar. Lauren begins, “Sheila met her in prison. She was her warden.” She then goes into how they resurfaced in Genoa City and how Sheila was locked up in a mental ward. Confused and trying to follow along, Deacon looks shocked.  That’s when Lauren says he will be blown away by the rest of the story.

As they sit, Lauren explains that all that time she thought it was Sheila who was locked up, she learned that it wasn’t her in the mental institution. That is when we are treated to a flashback. It was there that Sheila admits to Lauren that when she and Sugar escaped the prison, they fled to South America, where Sugar sacrificed her face. Sugar thought she was going in for a facelift, but Sheila was able to buy off corrupt doctors to have Sugar’s face altered to look exactly like Sheila.

Deacon gulps, “What are you telling me, Lauren?” Lauren says, “That there’s someone out there who looks exactly like Sheila. Someone with ten toes.” Vindicated, Deacon shouts, “I was right. It wasn’t Sheila who got cremated. She’s alive! My, God! Sheila’s alive!”

So, the search will be for Sheila starting with next week’s episodes of B&B. Do you think somehow Sheila will wind up in the orbit of Lauren if she has been in hiding since Steffy ‘killed” her in self-defense?  Is Sheila kidnapped somewhere? Share your thoughts via the comment section, but first, look at the set-up of Deacon learning about Sheila and Sugar’s past from Lauren.

Y&R’s Eileen Davidson Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Taking on a DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) storyline on the soaps can be extraordinarily challenging for the performer who is tasked with making a clear distinction and delineation between the various alters of their character.

However, the other trick to playing this kind of story, is often having the various alters trying to hide the fact from those they know and love of what is truly going on with them, so as not to tip them off, as to what is happening to them as they battle for control of a person’s psyche.

The gold standard is One Life to Live icon Erika Slezak’s (ex-Viki) Emmy-winning and gut-wrenching and riveting DID storyline where we met Tori, Niki (although we met her earlier in the life of the show), Tommy, Princess, Jean and even her father, Victor.

Now in 2024, The Young and the Restless’ Eileen Davidson is playing out a new DID storyline for the first time as Ashley Abbott. We knew decades ago that Ashley had a breakdown and has suffered psychological issues, but this has taken it to a new level. And, let’s be real, if you are going to give someone currently on a soap a DID story, who better than Davidson, who is used to playing multiple characters at one time as she did on Days of our Lives. Although on DAYS, each of the characters were their own distinct person, while now on Y&R, Ashley’s alters are fighting for control of her being,

Last week, on the Thursday, April 12th episode of the CBS soap opera, Davidson truly got to shine, as in front of the Abbott family and through what was supposed to be an intervention (they hadn’t figure out what the hell was happening to her), Ashley was flipping from alter to alter. We know there is Ms. Abbott, and Ash thus far, but there is said to be one more alter a-coming.

In the key scenes, Davidson’s internal struggle was played pretty masterfully in a scene where she literally is in a tug of war with her alters and flings herself on the couch, while Jack (Peter Bergman), Diane (Susan Walters), Billy (Jason Thompson) and Traci (Beth Maitland) look on. Of course, there are the soap trope scenes of alters in handcuffs while the other is on the loose. And leave it to Billy to figure out Ashley is suffering from DID from his past experience.

While this all seemed to spring from Ashley’s messy relationship with Tucker (Trevor St. John) and a throw back to an old car accident where she lost her unborn baby, is there some other underlying issue in Ashley’s past that was even more traumatizing that will be revealed as another trigger for this massive personality split? We shall see.

In the meantime, Michael Fairman TV names Eileen Davidson’s work the Power Performance of the Week, and rest assured, come 2025, Davidson will find herself going for the third Daytime Emmy win as Lead Actress for this storyline.

So, let us know, what did you think of Eileen’s performance? Are you enjoying Ashley’s DID storyline? What do you think will happen to her next? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: “Sugar Sugar! Oh, Honey Honey”

The Bold and the Beautiful revealed at the end of the Friday April 13th episode what many viewers had guessed, that it wasn’t Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) who died when Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) stabbed her, but it had to her doppelgänger, Sugar, or at least it seems that way.

Deacon (Sean Kanan) has been beside himself since seeing what was supposed to be Sheila’s body being cremated, but revealing the body had ten toes and not nine, and we all know Sheila had cut off her toe, so she only had nine.

While explaining his thoughts that she is alive to Finn (Tanner Novlan) and then trying later to explain to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Deacon is more convinced that something is wrong here. Meanwhile, Finn went to talk to Steffy about Deacon’s theory, which stuns her, as she believed she killed Sheila in self-defense.

At Il Giardino, Deacon looks at his phone then slams it down. He flashes back to the body going into the crematorium oven saying to himself, “Maybe I’m not going crazy. Maybe that wasn’t you. And if that wasn’t you, maybe you’re out there. Maybe you need my help.”

Deacon gets on Sheila’s laptop and tries to find something that might help him figure out where Sheila has gone. He looks at her text message communications and sees a section from an unknown number. He opens the messages, and Deacon reads that they’re from someone named “Sugar.”  That person said she was going to find Sheila. In the messages, Sheila made it clear she wanted no part of her. But it could be that Sheila met up with Sugar, or was forced too?

In a quick history lesson about the character of Sugar: she was originally played by Robin Mattson on B&B, and was a former prison warden who helped Sheila escape and then joined her in kidnapping Ridge Forrester to hold him for ransom. A twisted plot ensued, where flames engulfed the foundry they were at and Ridge was presumed dead. Meanwhile, Sheila and Sugar disappeared with Massimo and Sheila’s baby, Diana.

Fast forward to 2006, Sheila returned to Genoa City to go after Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) again and was arrested for attacking Scott Grainger (Peter Barton). In a shocker, when Lauren went to visit Sheila in the slammer, she learned that the woman behind bars was actually Sugar, who had been given plastic surgery and now looks exactly like Sheila.

Now the questions become, did Sheila know that Sugar was going to attack Steffy? Did they have a plan and it went awry, or was Sheila hoping she could get rid of both Sugar and Steffy, by having her daughter-in-law sent to prison for her “murder”? Or, is Sheila out there somewhere in trouble?

Share your theories via the comment section below, and if you knew all along that it would be revealed that Sugar is the person who actually died and not Sheila. But first, check out next week on B&B where Deacon gets a visit from Lauren.
