The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will meet someone new once B&B returns with original episodes. Tanner Novlan will portray a love interest for Steffy named Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan. It’s intriguing that Steffy’s new man is a doctor, so let’s consider that story clue and how it might fit with the rest of the puzzle.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, The Bold and the Beautiful Head Writer and Executive Producer Bradley Bell talked about what’s ahead for Steffy. He confirmed that a new actor would be working mostly with Wood – and now TVLine has announced Novlan is that actor. Finn is specifically coming on the show to be Steffy’s next main squeeze.
Why will Steffy be spending so much time with a doctor? It’s possible Steffy meets Finn elsewhere and that just so happens to be his profession, but that seems sort of pointless. The Bold and the Beautiful appears to have a doctor-related story in mind, so will Finn end up treating Steffy?
Let’s look at what else Bell had to say in that interview. Bell insisted that there’ll be “a storyline for Steffy that should really be interesting, informative … it’s a bit of an issue storyline. We’re getting back into taking on an issue that’s challenging in America and around the world.”
Now we should put these clues together and see how it all adds up. We’ve got Steffy working mostly with a doctor, so they’ll presumably be dealing with this issue together. Since Bell spoke so generally about this issue, it doesn’t sound like a specific illness.
Could Steffy get injured and hooked on painkillers that Dr. Finnegan aka Finn prescribes? Addiction might be an issue that Bell wants to highlight. Bell alluded to some “intense drama” playing out right off the bat, and Wood would certainly be able to sink her teeth into a story like that.
Of course, a doctor falling for his patient might be another tricky problem to tackle! That could be part of this upcoming storyline and the messy circumstances it’ll bring. Whatever the case, B&B fans are definitely excited to see what the future holds for Steffy and Finn.
