‘The bold And The Beautiful’ Spoilers reveal Dr. John Finnegan AKA “Finn” (Tanner Novlan) as Steffy Forrester’s (Jacquelin MacInness Wood) new significant other and baby daddy, and they seem to be happy, but the thing is… we don’t exactly know anything about where he came from!
Steffy mentioned it to Dad Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) saying that she actually wants to know more about his family and what she’s getting into with baby Hayes, though you have to wonder… why did this conversation never come up before? They’ve had all this time and even had a baby together but apparently Finn’s life before moving to LA never once came up?
‘The bold And The Beautiful’ Spoilers: I find that a little hard to believe.
Now, in soap opera country this just means that he’s actually hiding something really messed up. There’s a fan theory going around that he’s actually a bastard son of Ridge Forrester’s which would just make things too Star Wars for words. (Anyone reminded of the Luke and Leia kiss?)
Here’s hoping that they don’t go in this direction because it would just make things really, really uncomfortable but it would confirm my pet theory that The Bold and the Beautiful is actually written by a bunch of feral cats and that explains why there is so many half-siblings developing fascinations with each other on the show. (Thomas and Hope, anyone?)
They could always take a play out of General Hospital’s handbook and make Finn an ex-con of some kind. Or, perhaps they could make him a gigolo doctor, the kind who uses women for their money and gets them addicted to all kinds of pain pills and cosmetic surgeries (considering Steffy suffered with addiction awhile back, this wouldn’t be that surprising) but so far Finn’s been a really good, loving, supportive boyfriend for Steffy so that theory is a bit far-fetched.
Could it be that Finn’s backstory is simply too boring for LA? Maybe he’s just from a completely normal family with no dirty secrets – and that’s his dirty secret, there are none. Hey, it’s a soap, that could be a thing. “Steffy Forrester marries boring doctor.” and crowds go wild.
However, I’m sure that Finn has a past that’s both sick and tawdry… perhaps he had an OnlyFans before meeting Steffy. Either way, we’ll see. Stay tuned!!!
