Well #BoldandBeautiful fans you know what time it is, it’s Cliffhanger Friday time. Today was a real cliffhanger as we jetted back in time to the “Wild, Wild West.” No need to delay, “Let’s Talk About Soaps.”
Let’s start with the TALLY/Caroline debacle. Caroline swooned town at the request of Steffy. Now I get the reasoning behind Caroline coming to town; she said that Thomas has been neglecting his fatherly duties by not visiting Douglas since he’s been at Spectra. No problem, I can buy that because even before he hasn’t mentioned Douglas except for the time Granny Spectra spilled the tea that he had a child. She phoned Spectra Fashions and spoke with Sally, immediately throwing up Sally’s guard. However, Thomas reassured her that he was with her, not Caroline.
We later find out Steffy’s motive is to breakup TALLY. Mrs. Busybody Steffy Spencer was on the case, she immediately got into Caroline’s ear encouraging her to make her feelings known to Thomas and that she, Thomas, and Douglas should be one happy family.
Wait, hold up; there was NEVER any great Carmas love story. Caroline NEVER chose Thomas over ANYBODY. She chose Rick over Thomas and later Ridge; so this great love story is coming out of left field. The ONLY time Caroline slept with Thomas was when they both were intoxicated and she had taken Pam’s prescription medication. Now there’s a school of thought that Thomas raped Caroline; I’m not going to go there this go around.
Anyway, Ms. Sally Insecure Spectra and Thomas was chilling out working from home when a knock came at the door. BOOM, it’s Caroline “Baby Mama” Spencer Forrester with Douglas in tow. True to form, Sally’s insecurities got the best of her and she bolted out of the apartment to confront Steffy about bring Caroline back to break TALLY up. Chile please, you never let the enemy see you sweat. Sally confronting Steffy was a rookie move.
Meanwhile, Caroline is making her faux case about loving and missing Thomas. Just when Carmas is close together within breathing each other’s breath distance, Sally returns. “I can come back later,” #girlbye, you are rattled and it shows.
Instead of being a bad b*tch showing you’re confident with your man being with his baby mama; she proceeds to throw shade at Caroline with snide remarks. Whipped a*sed Thomas, should have told Sally that was inappropriate or at the very least give her the eye; but he didn’t, he’s whipped.
On the other side of town, Quinn is busy trying to track down Eric and calls Steffy. She and her sidekick, lapdawg Liam jet over to the Forrester mansion. Quinn spin her web of lies saying that Eric is with Sheila and she “thinks” Sheila has a gun. She covered her tracks by saying repeatedly, “I can’t be certain.” Yet, she knew the very thought of Eric being with Sheila and a gun in the same sentence would provoke fear. Remember Eric asked Sheila to get his electric razor, so that’s probably what Quinn felt, not a gun. I want to know on what planet does Steffy and lapdawg take Quinn at her word. Yes, Sheila is extremely dangerous, but they just threw the history of Quinn out the window and took her word as gospel.
While Rescue Ranger Lapdawg Liam tracks down Eric location by pinging his cell phone. Mrs. Busybody Steffy is upstairs retrieving Stephanie’s gun. Shocked that Steffy has a gun, but not man enough to tell her not to take it; lapdawg and Mrs. Busybody rushes out the door to “rescue” Eric after she explains that Sheila is the reason Taylor was out of the families lives for so long. Can we say hypocrisy here? Since the rewrite of Steffy, she’s shown little concern or love for Taylor; as a matter of fact, she has thrown Taylor under the bus numerous of times. So, that’s going to be a #girlbye for me.
At the hotel, Sheila is caring for Eric, making sure he take his meds. Eric makes it clear that there will never be a rekindle of their relationship. Sheila says she know she wants to help people using kindness and people in need and he’s in need. But we know that Sheila doesn’t mean it, she’s trying to slowly massage Eric’s heart to want her again.
Banging on the door like the police, Mrs. Busybody Steffy and Rescue Ranger Lapdawg Liam pushes past Sheila to interrogate a grown a*s man why he left his wife. It’s painfully obvious that Eric wants nothing to do with Quinn and his family right now. But in true form, Steffy is abrasive and demands answers while her lapdawg waits for her to throw him a bone.
Sheila at one point says we all are leaving; but nope, not Steffy. Her erratic, controlling, bossy, everyone answers to me self is going nowhere. When Eric tells Steffy to ask her father what happened; she digs her feet in deeper; Sheila steps in and tells them they need to leave. Adamant; Steffy refuses and Sheila grabs her arm. Rescue Ranger Lapdawg Liam grabs Sheila’s hand and tell her “let go.”
At this point Steffy demands answers and when Sheila tells her she’s helping her grandfather; she wants to know how. Sheila says she will show her how she’s helping Eric and goes to her purse. Rescue Ranger Lapdawg shouts “woo, woo, she’s got a gun.” Immediately Mrs. Busybody Steffy springs into action, shoving lapdawg out of the way; grabs the gun out of her purse and shoots Sheila. Eric grabs Sheila and stares at Steffy while lapdawg and Steffy look like deer in headlights.
Now, many people, even Steffy haters are giving her a pass because 1. Sheila is psycho and 2. Sheila shot Taylor. Nope, not me, I’m not giving this violent criminal a pass. Steffy is always looking for an opportunity to exert herself in other people’s lives taking control. She has done untold violent and criminal deeds; i.e. locking Hope in the gondola; blackmail; killing Aly, throwing away the murder weapon and lying about it; electrocuting Ivy; and numerous other deeds.
Sheila wasn’t posing a threat to Steffy, why didn’t she leave as asked? When Eric stood by Sheila, Steffy kept pushing. It’s NOT ok to shot someone because another psycho told you they “thought” she had a gun. Especially when their back is turned. Steffy played “Judge, Juror, and Executioner” as usual and she will get away with no consequence for her destructive behavior as usual.
Twitter was ablaze with comments, here’s a few:
@pghmum02 She’s injected into every single damn storyline when are other people going to get a chance.
@brbl4 They try way too hard to whitewash steffys actions and it so doesn’t work.
@bitchgodtemple By shooting Sheila, Steffy just handed her the keys to the castle! She will now have Eric’s unbridled support & loyalty #BoldAndBeautiful
@FebWriter However, once Sheila is back in Eric’s bed, and has his ring on her finger, Steffy better sleep with one eye open!
@PhilParis82 Sheila gonna get her later I’m sure. For now she’ll act like she forgives her just to show to Eric her good faith haha
Sheila will get her, if Bold’s bias writing doesn’t interfere. Fans are sick and tired of Steffy and the whitewashing of her character. So Steffy, it’s in your best interest to step away from the situation; because Sheila is coming for you and the fans are tired of seeing you in every story line.
What do you think? Is there really a great Carmas love story? Will Sally ever think she will “measure up?” Will Eric now turn his affections to Sheila? Will Steffy EVER pay for her crimes? You tell me.
