We don't know anything about Finn's background AT ALL!!! Brad of course hasn't developed him as an actual character before rushing him into a romance with Steffy. I'm expecting a psycho ex or a meddling parent played by a 90's television star. 


Lol pretty much. I can so see after the birth & honeymoon Finn having a psycho ex-wife out there show up unexpectedly, the ex-wife being some lost daughter of Deacon and therefore is Hope’s half-sister. B&B would concoct a connection like that. Or Finn having a past with Shauna lol. 
 

Or Thudley goes to the Grant/Macy route to have Finn drop dead just when Finn & Steffy are at their happiest. 
 

Speaking of Grant...

Think back of all the men Brooke has dated that weren't Forresters. There was never much to them

 

Grant was pretty much the last real  versatile non-Forrester man on this show, and that was over 20 years now.

And even Grant... I mean Charles Grant gave him a lot beyond the paper but if you think about how much we knew about Grant, it is not much.

Dafuq? These scenes with Steffy and Finn are shot and edited SO awkwardly.


Why is every single person drawing out these paternity reveals? It’s BEYOND stupid.

It's amazing that Thomas is the only person to put the words together, "Vinny altered the paternity test!"  I thought Hope was going to leave Liam hanging for another day.....sheesh.

Remember what I was talking at length just a few days ago about Bell does not know how to do fallout? He just wants buildup and PLOT and then doesn't quite how to write the aftermath
His utter inability to write properly what should be gimme scenes of various characters reacting to the altered paternity test is proof of that again.

He didn't realize the "fun" of the storyline shouldn't be in the reveal Finn is the father itself but in the various reactions to it. And he can't even give us that properly.

I wanted to strangle Hope today. Spit it out!

 

Some fan with the time on his or her hands should edit a laugh track onto Liam’s scenes today.

And it seems he likes to take the easy way out too. We didn't need another round of Hope/Liam/Steffy. This could have been the chance to transition Steffy into something different and he just didn't take it.

It occurred to me that no one is running a second paternity test.

But because Vinnie admitted he tampered with it everyone simply assumes that means the result was wrong and Finn is the father.
But did we get a clear explanation of what Vinnie did other than make sure Liam came out the father? If I missed it, my speculation might off-base but I am pretty sure they stayed vague as to what exactly he did.
Because otherwise, if it is not a straight-forward sample switch, this leaves the door wide open for Bell to revisit this later once Finn has served his purpose and is out of the picture and he wants to sell us on another round of Liam/Steffy.
Tampered with it could simply mean Vinnie wrote down Liam without running the test properly or something. It doesn't mean it was wrong; it simply means he made sure it had the result he wanted.
He told Finn he was the father, granted, but that still leaves a pretty huge loophole that he made the assumption, just like the audience, or that he told Finn that to get rid of him in a situation where he was being threatened or was trying to justify himself to Thomas, and he actually doesn't know. 
Just like when I need to see a corpse to believe a character has been properly killed off, I need me a second paternity test to be sure. I know I am being far-fetched but I have watched enough soaps to spot a loophole.

There was no clear explanation. I just hope it doesn't mean that there's a twist coming

I don't think there is a plan for a twist.

I do think that leaves the door open to revisit this once Finn is out of the picture in a few years.

this could it be fun if Finn turned out be Deacon's son with Becky?  Then Finn and Hope are related. . .


I wouldn't have been mad at that at all if they had established it from the get-go.
Making him Eric Sharpe now would feel a bit too contrived.

On today's episode, everyone was saying "I could get Vinny" "I could kill Vinny" "I want Vinny in jail"

 

Are they leading up to a Who Killed Vinny? murder mystery?

And all Liam had to do to make Hope happy was to act excited that the baby wasn’t his.

 

The POS couldn’t even do that.

 

He talked about his LOSS, for God’s sake. I wanted to throw up.

Scott Clifton should sue the writers.
