Hidden Message Inside Bold & Beautiful’s Resurrection Of Finn 


Sometimes a back-from-the-dead twist means more than just that a character is coming back from the dead.

There was a time when, if The Bold and the Beautiful killed off a character;

It was devastating. Impactful. Real. Take, for instance, the death of the soap’s original heroine, Caroline Spencer.

Three years after the show debuted, it, along with grieving husband Ridge Forrester, was rocked to its core by her passing.

Moreover, though portrayer Joanna Johnson was eventually brought back as surprise twin Karen, Caroline was never raised from the grave.

Well, unless you count it as an occasional vision.

In subsequent years, Bold & Beautiful began to get a bit loosey-goosey with matters of life and death.

Taylor Hayes croaked. Twice. Felicia Forrester was said to have kicked the bucket, only for the bucket to turn out to be undented.

Moreover, we cannot even imagine tallying the number of times that:

Between this show and The Young and the Restless, Sheila Carter has made a round trip to the hereafter.

However, now, with the resurrection of Tanner Novlan’s beloved Finn Finnegan, the soap feels like it has turned a corner.

Like it is saying, “Do not worry, if a character is popular enough, they will only ever die in air quotes.” Which, on the one hand, is lovely.

Fans were displeased that Steffy’s husband had traded a stethoscope for a toe tag. On the other, it makes it tough to care about what happens.

Think about it. Suppose Brooke was killed in a terrible car crash next week.

Every character on the show would react, and we would be supposed to have one, too. But how could we?

When we have been sent the message that the soap only puts down rugs to pull them out from under us, why would we?

We would sit there twiddling our thumbs, waiting for the “shocking reveal” that she is alive and well and rocking an exceptionally fashionable Band-Aid on a beach somewhere.
