The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) preview promo spoilers tease that the addiction situation with Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will start to get more concerning during the week of September 7.
The new B&B preview is out, and it’s all about Steffy and her growing dependence on the prescription painkillers that she’s been using to numb both her physical and emotional pain.
As last week rolled to a close, Steffy was chatting with her doctor, John “Finn’ Finnegan (Tanner Novlan. Steffy has perked up a little bit since her big meltdown/argument with Hope Spencer (Annika Noelle), but Finn knows that Steffy is in serious crisis.
He heard Steffy’s tone and desperation when she was arguing with Hope, and now Finn will have a big decision to make about Steffy’s care – specifically about whether to allow her another refill of those pain meds.
According to B&B spoilers, Finn will flatly refuse Steffy’s pleas for a third refill on her pain pill prescription. In the promo, viewers see Steffy in various stages of crisis and popping pills at various times.
“You are strong, and you are a fighter,” Finn says as viewers see Steffy clearly in various stages of her growing addiction. Then Finn is shown telling Steffy that he wants her to fully understand what’s happening to her.
But Steffy doesn’t seem to get it. “You think I have a problem?” Steffy asks, clearly not seeing what Finn and her brother Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) see in Steffy’s demeanor and personality.
Clearly, Steffy isn’t herself, and in The Bold and the Beautiful preview promo, she tells Finn that the only thing that gives her relief are the meds. This just isn’t the Steffy Forrester that viewers know and love, and even someone new to the scene like Finn can see that Steffy is going down a terrible road.
There is something interesting about the promo, and that’s that Steffy seems to be popping an awful lot of pills throughout it. Yet at the end of last week, Steffy was out of her second refill.
And since ongoing B&B spoilers indicate that Steffy will get a very special gift from Thomas’ friend Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero), that could be a very bad sign.
As B&B viewers will remember Vinny scored some drugs for Thomas on two occasions in the past – once when Thomas wanted to drug Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and once when he wanted to drug Hope – and so the fact that Vinny is going to give Steffy a present could very well mean that he’s going to provide her with more pain pills when Finn denies her request for another refill of the meds.
It’s going to be a bad situation if Steffy starts getting access to illegal pain meds, and the potential for some serious abuse of the pills is pretty high. The promo clearly shows Steffy in a major crisis, and in some serious denial about her problem.
Something’s going to have to give soon, and we suspect that Finn will be the one to help Steffy climb her way out of addiction and reclaim control over her life.
Let’s hope that Steffy can dig in and reclaim her strength with Finn’s help relatively soon. One thing’s for sure – Steffy is going to have a big journey ahead of her as she has to face her growing addiction along with the emotional pain she’s trying to avoid.
It looks like we’re in for an exciting week, so stay tuned! We’ll give you updates as B&B news comes in. Stick with the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL frequently for the latest Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, daily episode recaps, and news.
