‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ (B&B) spoilers find that the ‘bombshell’ finally dropped this week. And it was as disappointing as the performances themselves.
Those of us waiting on a big twist were left dissatisfied. All of the signs, the dialogue and the actions of the key players in the DNA switch storyline led to the exact resolution we saw on our screens.
Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero), from his position in the hospital lab, switched the results to make it look like Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) was the father of Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) unborn baby, freeing up Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) to be with his BFF Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson).

If the three days of Thomas badgering Vinny into confessing weren’t enough to have you turning off the long running suds-fest, perhaps the weirdly shot flying punches and the cringey delivery of accusations and confessions today were.
It wasn’t the best acting we’ve seen from Atkinson, LoCicero or Tanner Novlan (Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan). Okay, it was downright awful. I can’t be the only one who LOL’ed a little at the lab scene, especially at Vinny’s cartoon-like departure.
But here is where I’m going to defend the performers and blame the clunky dialogue, in fact the entire played-out storyline, for the debacle we saw on our screens today.
Do the writers really give their viewers such little credit that they needed almost every second line uttered from one of their actors to be a hint at what could have been a decent twist but ultimately became just par for the course?
The only surprise that come from the “reveal” was Finn catching up to Steffy before she left for the airport to jet to Paris. We all know Jaqueline MacInnes Wood is currently on maternity leave so a smooth exit was expected.
Will she still leave, and if so, what will be her insane logic this time now that Finn is proven to be the father? Maybe she will stay in L.A. but the writers will give some other actors some screen time.
Perhaps Steffy will go by the way of all the children on the B&B, spoken of often, but never seen nor heard (I sure hope Aunty Donna gets paid for all this off screen baby-sitting she does).
I’m sure this conundrum will be answered as unsensationally as the paternity switch…and then what? Maybe some Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) and Katie Logan (Heather Tom) or Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer) and Eric Forrester (John McCook) drama for a change?
