The Christmas Eve episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured a trio of musical talents across the company of players and the entire episode was as though shot on the first take in real time. That’s old school, indeed, speaking of Grand Dude, the name Zende attaches to his grandfather Eric.

John McCook led the way with a self-accompanied Deck The Halls with the entire Forrester Christmas party joining in.

Next were two stirring solo performances. First, the blues-stylings of Kiara Barnes playing the character of Zoe Buckingham singing Jingle Bells, followed by the haunting and rhapsody-like rending of Silent Night as performed by sister Paris Buckingham.

The evening was rounded out by a reprise of Mr. McCook as Eric leading his entire company in Joy To The World on the piano.

 

Episode 66 features the fantastic Lawrence Saint Victor as Carter Walton, with his expectations at such a high level that one fears for him.

We see Zoe with wandering eye for Zende. By contrast, one-woman Carter has no other women on his mind or in his orbit of relationships.

Haven’t you had, uh, friends, yes, very good friends to whom this has happened? The pedestal for your fiance is not necessarily a good thing.

Tanner Novlan as Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan has gone from being an actor who seemed rightly intimidated by the experienced acting company of The Bold and The Beautiful when he first joined the cast a few months ago.

Quickly, he has shown poise and confidence – he has quickly become one of my favorite characters. Who is a more realistic doctor, Gregory House, MD or John Finnegan, MD? The no-money bet I have with my cat Jonson is on Finn, as much as I enjoy the fantastic yet unrealistic show HOUSE, MD.
