The Friday, April 1 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful made waves with viewers for several reasons. The episode featured a long-awaited confrontation between Steffy and Sheila. This spurs Finn to action, stepping between his mother and his love — both literally and physically.

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, the end of the episode teases a violent showdown. Not only could the episode lead to the end of Finn’s time on The Bold and the Beautiful, but it could change the course of Steffy’s life forever.

In addition to the drama between Steffy, Sheila, and Finn, Ridge has his concerns about Sheila’s actions as well. He even gets Taylor involved by asking her to reconsider the way she’s been micromanaging Sheila’s office visit. With Sheila’s loose-cannon ways and Finn’s determination to protect his family, viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful could look forward to major drama.

What’s happened to Steffy, Sheila, and Finn since the April 1 episode?

Since the April 1 episode, Sheila shot both Finn and Steffy. Although her son died, Steffy made it to the hospital to be treated. As Soaps In Depth reports, a surprised Sheila told Thomas, “The idea of Steffy clinging to life in there scares me just as much as it scares you.” However, viewers know Sheila is scared of Steffy waking up and telling the world what she did. In more recent episodes, Steffy wakes up, bringing Sheila one step closer to justice.

Now is the perfect time to catch up on The Bold and the Beautiful. Fans can watch the drama on the CBS network, where new episodes air on a daily basis throughout the week. Viewers can also catch up on episodes of the show on the CBS website as well as on the Paramount+ streaming service. Full episodes are available as well as clips of specific episodes.
