Bill Spencer comes to Li Finnegan’s rescue on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’

Li’s life has been turned upside down since Sheila Carter’s (Kimberlin Brown) return to The Bold and the Beautiful. Li was stunned to learn Sheila was the birth mother of her son John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan). The doctor was dealt with another shocking revelation when her husband, Jack Finnegan (Ted King), confessed Finn was the result of his and Sheila’s affair.

Li and Jack’s marriage fell apart, but that wasn’t the only heartbreak she faced. She was horrified to discover Sheila shot Finn, but Li wouldn’t give up on her son. She snuck him out of the hospital and tended to an unconscious Finn at home.

However, Li’s secret was discovered by Sheila, who escaped from prison. The two had a heated confrontation after Li tried to call the cops. Their showdown leads to a high-speed chase, and Li crashes her car.

The doctor survived but was traumatized by the events. Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) found her and brought her back to his house to help her. Although Li was initially scared, she trusted Bill and revealed to him that Finn is alive.
