‘The Bold and The Beautiful’ Speculation: Sheila’s Frustration Against Steffy Turns Deadly

On The Bold and the Beautiful, the battle lines between Sheila Carter and Steffy Forrester have been drawn. Sheila wants to have a relationship with her son, Finn Finnegan, and grandbaby. But even though Finn is married to Steffy, Steffy isn’t trying to hear what Sheila has to say. Unsurprisingly, this is building up some incredible tension between the two. And the latest speculation suggests that their conflict will turn deadly.

[Spoiler alert: Potential spoilers for upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful are up ahead.]

On ‘The Bold and the Beautiful,’ Sheila faked a fainting spell to get Finn’s sympathy

The Sept. 3 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured Sheila stooping to a whole new low in her relationship with Finn and Steffy. As Soaps @ SheKnows explains, Sheila faked a fainting spell to garner sympathy from her biological child.

“Sheila takes a reassuring tone as she tells him she just wanted to see her son again!” they report. “Finn won’t betray his wife and can’t allow this to continue. He calls her Sheila, but she wants him to call her ‘Mom’. He can’t. Finn reminds her that she promised she would leave. He warns, “My son and I will have no part of your life, Sheila, ever!” He turns to make a call, and Sheila passes out on the floor. Finn calls 911. “Her name is Sheila Carter. She’s my mother. My mom.” On the floor, Sheila smiles.”

Talk about being the monster-in-law from hell!

She did it after Finn and Steffy came to an understanding about Sheila

Earlier on that same The Bold and the Beautiful episode, Finn and Steffy came to an understanding about Sheila. Finn finally realized that he couldn’t keep hurting his wife like this — even though he wants nothing more than to have a relationship with his birth mother.

Steffy truly believed Finn when he said that Sheila will no longer be bothering them — and that, even if she were to come around again, he’d turn her away. Steffy even let Finn out of the dog house (or, more accurately, the guest house) and back into the main house.

But her faith in Finn may be misplaced if the latest The Bold and the Beautiful speculation is to be believed.

Will Sheila use deadly force against Steffy?

According to another report filed by Soaps @ SheKnows, if there’s one thing The Bold and the Beautiful fans know, it’s that Sheila will stop at nothing to get what she wants. It’s all but confirmed that Sheila wants Steffy out of the way. But how far will she go to ensure that happens?

“Big-hearted, empty-headed Finn will find himself wanting to be by his mother’s side as she convalesces, further alienating Steffy — who will rightfully insist Sheila’s a big ol’ faker — in the process,” they said. “If this all sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because this exact same story played out when Sheila wormed her way into a Forrester bedroom after battling with Quinn.”

Now, this is all just speculation, of course. Who knows what Sheila will do to get her way? Whatever happens, we know Steffy won’t go down without a fight. We’ll just have to tune in to upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful to see what happens next.
