THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: What Did You Think of Steffy and Finn’s Highly-Anticipated Reunion?

Courtesy/CBS

On Monday and Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) finally was reunited with her husband, Finn (Tanner Novlan).

As the story goes, Steffy has fallen into a deep depression and took off to Monaco.  Set against the backdrop of Monte Carlo, a very much alive Finn searches for her. After some false starts, they see each other for the first time outside a cathedral.  What followed was sweeping epic music, hugs, kisses, and tears as Steffy was trying to comprehend that the man she saw Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) shoot a bullet through never actually died.

Now, where the story gets a bit glossed over is when they get back to the hotel. Finn explains that he wouldn’t have made it, if it wasn’t for his mom, Li (Naomi Matsuda).  Steffy wonders if Li knew Finn was alive, why wouldn’t she tell her?  Finn tells Steffy that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) found them and things went down hill from there, but doesn’t get into any grisly details. When Steffy has some questions, Finn just wants to relish the moment, and promises he will never be apart from her ever again.

Next, Taylor (Krista Allen) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) arrive with the children, Kelly and Hayes, and the Finnegan/Forrester clan are back together again, against all odds, complete with epic music and slo-motion.

Throughout this story arc, kudos has to go to Tanner Novlan. Without his emotional performances and the viewers investing in Finn’s freedom from the hands of Sheila, this would not have played the same.

So, what did you think of the Sinn reunion?  Do you think it holds up with the other classic B&B couple reunions? Did it fall flat in the explanation from Finn to Steffy of where he has been all this time, or do you think the key points were on-point and you were reaching for the hankies, anyways? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first watch the final scene from Tuesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful below.

I loved the Monaco reunion for Steffy and Finn. The atmosphere was romantic from the moment we saw the beautiful city. I loved the Heavenly scenes at the church and the church bells were symbolic of Gods Grace and Love . For Sinn to be reunited by church bells is the reason I love soaps. 1 happy viewer

I loved the reunion. But I don’t think Monaco was necessary for what the storyline was. They could’ve done this in LA. I like when the entire or most of the cast travel for a huge story, etc.

It was kind of a let down to me. Steffy acts more like someone just died than getting her beloved husband back. She does not act happy at all, hardly ever smiles, she should be over the moon. The best reaction is from Kelly, her little girl. That kid is something else, what a good little actress. Iam so sick of Ridge and Taylor, she just can’t keep her hands off of him and he’s loving it but Brooke should not be anywhere near Deacon, what a hypocrite he is. Just a little added complaint. Why don’t they get babies… Read more »

Violet…I feel the same about Steffy’s reaction to having Finn back…alive. But then I think she provoked Sheila in the first place. I just don’t like her character. If anything Finn (Tanner) is doing all of “celebrating” for both of them. As is Ridge and Taylor. About R&T…if they can get so upset and feel betrayed by family picture of Brooke that includes Deacon wonder what Brooke would think about all the hugging going on between her husband and his ex? But “Oh,”. She never sees it.

Sure agree with you. I’ve never liked Steffys , high and mighty attitude. Look at all she did to get Liam away from Hope. I like Finn, but he got no bargain with her! Well, it will be interesting to see what she does to ruin this miracle she just got.

Agree. Steffys reaction was more like someone died and to be honest JMW I think was a little over the top in her acting with this.

It was done well but I’ve never been a fan of Steffy & Finn it’s the worst coupling on the show in my opinion and very overrated. Most Steffy fans only like Finn because he’s not Liam. They still hate how Liam chooses Hope all the time over Steffy. Steffy & Finn have absolutely no chemistry and aren’t anywhere close to sexy like Quinn & Carter. That reunion was much smaller and felt a lot better. Even Taylor & Deacon have a better connection. LOL!

Steffy seems “shell-shocked” to me. Everyone else is definitely showing their happiness better. I could absolutely kill stupid Hope for taking that dumb picture of the 3 of them then posting it!!!!!!! WHY???? She is an idiot. Brooke has been so patient & accepting of everything that has happened to her & waiting for Ridge to make up his mind, taking care of Steffy & now flying off with Taylor! And 30 unintentional seconds with Deacon causes Ridge to kiss Taylor. Ridge does not deserve Brooke.

Iam not a fan of Brooke, but she’s taken more than enough emotional abuse from “his hignass” Ridge. I’d have kicked him out on his butt a long time ago. We used to talk about wishy washy Liam, but Ridge does the same thing.

I agree with you somewhat but as Hope told her mom today, she should be able to take a photo with her mom and dad and not have to worry how it might effect St.Ridge, my words not Hope’s. Brooke should have kicked his bullying ass out long ago after that affair/wedding he had with the Las Vegas bimbo.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Finn and Li are Reunited

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, the CBS daytime drama moved the story forward in a major way.

While Finn (Tanner Novlan) was trying to outwit Sheila (Kimberlin Brown), he tells his bio-mom that she can’t keep him prisoner anymore and that he is going to walk out of this situation, and get back to his wife, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and his son, Hayes.

Elsewhere, Li (Naomi Matsuda) has finally been able to put more than two words together, and tells both Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill (Don Diamont) that Finn is alive.  She even details how she signed her son’s death certificate, and secretly whisked him away to a safe place to nurse him back to health and keep him away from Sheila.  Li also recounts to the Spencer men, how Sheila found her with Finn, and how she ultimately lost control of her car and landed in a fiery crash into the water.  Bill puts two and two together, as does Liam, and they realize Li is telling the truth.  Next, Bill asks Li if she knows where Finn and Sheila are, and off they go to save Finn.

Later, Finn has taken out all of his IV’s and such, and begins to walk out of his room and towards the front door, as Sheila watches in desperation. Just then, Bill bursts through the door and sees for himself – Sheila and Finn.  Next, Bill steps out of the way and Li is at the door.  Li and Finn are overcome with emotion as Li runs to her son, and says “Finn! Thank God! Oh my God!” At the same time, Li shoots daggers at Sheila, who begins to hyperventilate.

The loving mother and son are finally reunited, but what will happen next?  All we know is that we watched a hankie-inducing moment in the story played to the hilt by Tanner Novlan and Naomi Matsuda.

Watch the final moments from today’s B&B below.

Now weigh-in: What did you think of the performances of Tanner Novlan, Kimberlin Brown, and Naomi Matsuda? Let us know in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Esme’s Veiled Threat to Nikolas, “I Want To Tell Ava and Spence We Slept Together”

Everything’s coming up roses for Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), or at least it seems to be after Monday’s episode of General Hospital.

After Esme drugs Oz, he begins to pass out while she hides as Curtis (Donnell Turner) breaks down Oz’s door. When Curtis enters the apartment, Oz utters, “She gave me something,” and then passes out.  Next, Curtis calls 911 due to an unresponsive Oz, and he is soon whisked away by paramedics to GH, while Esme escapes sight unseen.

Elsewhere, at the lobby of the hotel, Ava (Maura West) and Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) are joined by Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) where they go over the events that transpired at Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) trial.  At the same time, Nikolas gets a text message from Esme who is now outside the hotel and tells him to come out and meet her, or she will come inside.

Once outside, Esme tells Nikolas that their secret is heavily weighing on her and wants to come clean to Ava and Spence. Esme tells Nikolas: “I want to tell Ava and Spence we slept together,” which mortifies Nikolas! He goes on to tell her it was a one time thing that will not happen again, so there is no need to bring it up.  Next, Esme opines about feeling lost without the internship at Spring Ridge.  So, what’s a guy to do?  Tell the woman he slept with he will make sure her internship is reinstated by tomorrow! All fake smiles and crocodile tears, Esme’s machinations is working wonders for her.

At GH, TJ (Tajh Bellow) tells Curtis that they had to put Oz in a medically-induced coma, and they will have to see what drugs were in his system at the time he passed out. Curtis is sure Esme Prince was behind this and wants to prove the connection between her and Oz.

Now going for the trifecta, Esme calls GH and gets Dione at the nurses’ station.  Esme pretends to be Oz’s daughter where she learns that her ‘dad’ is in a coma.  That’s music to Esme’s ears and she is all smiles – grinning from ear to ear.

Share your thoughts on Esme’s reign of terror, and what you think will be her next move and ultimate downfall, in the comment section below.
