Congrats to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, B&B) who was selected as the performer of the week! Click here to learn more--->>
On this past week of The Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) remembered the chain of events that took place the night of the shooting. She recalled that Sheila shot Finn and then shot her and left her for dead. Wood took fans on Steffy’s rollercoaster of emotions as she was shaken up at the horrifying memories that came flooding back and having to relive her husband’s murder. Wood showed the shock and fear followed by the disgust, anger, and rage Steffy had toward Sheila and what Sheila took from her. When Sheila came over, under the impression that the Forrester’s wanted Sheila to have a place in Hayes’ life, it took everything in Steffy not to reveal the truth upfront. Wood showed this perfectly as Steffy took a moment to breathe as she closed her eyes as Sheila babbled on. However, when Sheila started to talk about Finn more and more, Steffy couldn’t keep the charade up much longer. The confrontation between Steffy and Sheila was a long time coming and Wood did not disappoint. Fans could feel Steffy’s rage and grief through Wood’s powerful performance. While fans are still upset over the loss of Finn, one thing fans can count on is that Wood will knock her scenes out of the park every time. Bravo Wood!
