Doing double-duty in both episode 214 of The Bold and The Beautiful and The Young and The Restless is American actor John McCook, in the middle of multiple storylines on both programs.
On both #YR and #BB, John is seen as Eric Forrester being played by selfish characters as Sally Spectra and to a more righteous extent Phyllis Summers for his good nature and in business.
In Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful produced such an old-school cliffhanging episode for Monday that all hats go off to the writing team! Two people called me and asked, “What dog you really think us going to happen?” Not texts — actual phone calls. Five major storylines, all strong leaves the ‘what will Ridge do?’ issue as the most exciting and important.
In Genoa City Wisconsin on the Young and the Restless, new foundations are made, while Ben “Stitch” Rayburn is starting to creep out a lot of people. Meanwhile, the addition of Ashland and Tara Locke have made Victoria finally shine in her role in the business world.
On The Young and the Restless, the episode is features Nick and Summer played by Joshua Morrow and Hunter King in scenes that depict the hardest of all human encounters: the long, bittersweet goodbye. Meanwhile in Genoa City Lily has overcome cancer, a dead husband and a 6 month prison sentence for manslaughter as she giggles about Ashland Locke’s condition. At the Abbott mansion, as Harrison has moved in with Tara, is finally introduced the fabulous Aunt Traci and Aunt Ashley while Billy and Jack round out the scene for a full-Abbott celebration.
On The Bold and The Beautiful, Ridge deduces that Justin Barber must be lying about Thomas because of the ‘Eye On Fashion’ related “he left his phone here on business” excuse. Ridge, citing how young people do not make a move without personal cell phones asserts to Justin, “He wouldn’t have made it to the elevator” much less “take a business trip” without his cell phone. Liam is making a better case for himself than Justin is, yet all he is getting as a reward is a trip from L.A. County Jail to the Maximum Security system, whatever that means to Detective Baker, the Chief of the L.A. police department.
