B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This entire week, Daytime Emmy winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) has been acting her heart out as viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful watched Steffy’s quick descent into drug addiction take complete hold of her, thanks in part to a “gift” from Vinny!

What the story has allowed the writers, Wood, and the daytime drama to do is play the beats of what may have felt swept under the rug – the devastation of Steffy having “Phoebe” (who was actually baby Beth) taken from her and returned to her biological mother, Hope (Annika Noelle)- and it was then Hope who also got the man Steffy loved, Liam (Scott Clifton), back in her life –  leaving Steffy feeling alone, abandoned, and vulnerable.

Throughout this week’s airshows, Steffy tried to hide and deny her pill-popping from Liam who found her passed out on the couch, unresponsive, and their daughter, Kelly, unattended to, which began the series of scenes pitting them against each other.  But where Jacqui hit the home run, and is certainly now a front-runner for the Lead Actress trophy come next year’s 48th annual Daytime Emmys competition, was on Friday’s heartbreaking episode.

In story, after Kelly was taken by Liam, Steffy has come to get her child back and take her home, while strung out.  Liam, Hope and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) try to reason with Steffy to let Kelly stay with them while she takes care of herself and then she can have Kelly back.  However, Steffy gets further agitated that she doesn’t need help or therapy; she just needs her daughter!

Steffy demands Hope get out of her way as she is going to get Kelly… but just then Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) enters.  Steffy pleads with her father to help her through her tears saying that Liam and Hope stole Kelly, and are keeping her in the cabin with Donna. Ridge is annoyed at first and wants an explanation. Brooke tells him there’s a lot going on he doesn’t realize.

Liam pipes up and tells Ridge that Steffy’s been abusing pain pills and he hopes he will listen to him and help Steffy now.  Ridge doesn’t think Steffy would lie about taking pills but Liam explains how he found the bottle of pills. Now cornered, Steffy breaks down and admits she took a few pills, because she has been in so much pain and going through such a difficult time since the accident, and even before that!  She also tells her father how the Logans are once again destroying the Forresters, and how he chose Brooke over Taylor, and how Liam left her for Hope.   Ridge says they will get her help, but Steffy is not interested, and won’t have it, and pulls a switchblade on the group demanding Kelly be returned to her.

It is then Ridge asks her now that she has the blade out; what is her plan? What is her next step?  Realizing what she is doing, Steffy cries and drops the knife. But not before saying that she’ll never forgive Ridge or any of them for what they are doing to her.  She runs out, while Ridge goes after her, leaving Liam devastated.

This performance by Wood was so gut-wrenching that Michael Fairman TV names Jacqueline’s work the Power Performance of the Week.

Watch the final seven minutes of Friday’s episode of Wood’s tour de force performance.  Then let us know what you thought of Jacqueline in this week’s episodes on B&B via the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Has a Comeback, Kaitlyn Bristowe Overcomes Injury, One Couple Is Eliminated

On Tuesday evenings second night of competition in the new season of Dancing with the Stars, three former soap stars took to the ballroom dance floor in a night which also featured for the first time this season … the viewers vote counting for 50% of the total score, and one couple being sent home.

The “drama” of the episode was if former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe’s ankle would be OK enough for her to dance her routine.  With her being placed at the end of the show and then “wowing” everyone – it was hard to know how bad the injury was, but, as she detailed on the show she did receive a cortisone shot before performing and changed shoes to help her get through.

Meanwhile, Chrishell Stause, the former AMC, DAYS and Y&R star, currently on the reality hit, Selling Sunset, showed improvement, while ex- Passions, Desperate Housewives and Dallas star Jesse Metcalfe continued to bring the heat – although the judges want him to dance with less use of his facial expressions – and Daytime Emmy winner Anne Heche (Ex- Vicky/Marley, AW)  continued to be having the time of her life from her performances.

Here’a what went down…

Kaitlyn Bristowe and partner Artem Chigvintsev (Foxtrot): Performing to Leann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” and with the uncertainty of if she would dance at all, Bristowe, who wanted to be a dancer, got major kudos from the judges for her dramatic lines and moves fluidly through the dance floor and closed the night – combined total score of last week and this week 42 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Anne Heche and partner Keo Mostepe (Foxtrot): Performing to One Republic’s “Counting Stars”,  Heche revealed this was one of her favorite songs, and she also revealed this dance was to honor her two sons.  Although the judges did not feel Heche delivered as strongly with this performance than in the season opener, Anne still looked like she was enjoying every second of being on the floor – combined total score 36 out of 60

Chrishell Stause and partner Gleb Savchenko (Rumba):  Stause showed her vulnerability including sharing a story from her childhood past.  Then then duo danced to “This Is Me” from the Greatest Showman.  During the performance, Stause looked more fluid on the floor than the previous week and was praised for her improvement  – Combined total score 31 out of 60

Photo: ABC

Jesse Metcalfe and partner Sharna Burgess (Foxtror): This duo performed to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” and played up their chemistry on the floor. The critique from the judges had more to do with Jesse not looking so intense, and also his posture, but all told they did well – Combined score was 38 out of 60.

Now to the first elimination:  Carole Baskin and Charles Oakley were the celebrities in the bottom two.   It was up to the judges to decide which celebrity would be saved.  Bruno picked Charles, but Carrie Ann picked Carole, leaving Derek to cast the deciding vote … and he saved Carole.

So what did you think of how Chrishell, Anne and Jesse did on last night’s DWTS?  Did the right celeb get sent packing? What did you think of Kaitlyn’s dance and ankle injury? Comment below, but first check out their dances.
