Bill was on today telling Sheila to stay away from Kelly.

What about Beth? Your OTHER granddaughter? I guess she doesn’t matter to him because she’s Hope’s child.

I’m glad that Katie is with Carter. Katie shouldn’t be with a man who hates her niece and doesn’t give a darn about her grandniece.

And Bill isn’t the only one. Liam doesn’t care about Beth’s grandfather being with Sheila, only about Kelly, who I doubt Sheila has any interest in, Hope doesn’t care what Thomas did re: Beth anymore.

Are they writing this to set Beth up to be a b in the future because of how everyone disregarded her?

How is she not relevant? She is the very reason Liam can't forgive Hope, as he keeps reminding her. She's Liam's daughter and she will actually be closer to Sheila now than even Kelly since Deacon is Beth's grandad. Why is there so much concern for Kelly who literally owes her life to Sheila which proves Sheila has no interest in harming her, and zero concern for Beth, who can now be a direct target of both Sheila and Thomas, if they so wish? If this is a writing oversight, it's a major blunder.

I don’t think they hate her. I just think that it’s insulting to have them only worry about Sheila in Kelly’s life and not worry about her being in Beth’s life via Deacon.

How can Beth not relevant to the story when her grandpa is in a committed relationship with Sheila who clowns Liam and Bill kept hammering how dangerous she is?! I guess in their delusional, stupid minds, Sheila is only dangerous to Kelly and Steffy, but no one else. Lmao.

It’s because they’re pushing a Liam/Steffy/Finn triangle for now. Admitting Liam has a child with Hope doesn’t fit his “it was always Steffy” narrative he’s pushing at the moment.

Leffy has been a dead horse for so long, so suddenly pushing them as some great love story is totally laughable imo. Not to mention, they were so mismatched, boring and dysfunctional too.

And that’s my point, that Deacon being with Sheila puts Beth in Sheila’s path as much as or more than Kelly (more than, imo) but nobody is talking about that.

And like Dreamgirl pointed out, Sheila saved Kelly, so she doesn’t seem interested in harming her.

Why not have the characters mention Beth too?

Why should any of the other characters mention Beth? Her own mother doesn't mention her except to say that Beth is off with some babysitter.

Because it’s decent storytelling.

I don’t like how Hope has been written in regards to Beth either.

But I thought about it and this is my feeling:

When the show is trying to push Liam/Steffy, they want to ignore that Liam has a daughter with Hope.

Just as Dreamgirl mentioned, the Beth kidnapping incident is mentioned when Liam is trying to persuade Hope to not be with Thomas.

But when he isn’t doing that, when he’s pursuing Steffy and using Sheila as an excuse for why Steffy shouldn’t be with Finn, “Kelly is in danger” is brought up, or brought up by Liam/Steffy supporters like Bill.

And I personally find it bad writing to use the children completely as pawns for whatever narrative is being pushed.

I just want good writing, regardless of whatever pairing is together, I want consistency.

While Liam was in jail Tom was babysitting Beth when Hope visited Liam...Liam had no problem then. He even asked Tom to take care of Hope and Beth if he should have to stay in jail for a longer time.

Yep.

It’s just further proof in my book that the children exist right now as props for whatever story the show is telling at the moment.

I think they need a writer or consultant who reminds the script writers of the history and all the relationships so that things don’t come off as illogical, like worrying about one granddaughter and not the other when they are both in the same position.

They don´t care much about the children, only when they need them to make a point for a story, like Kelly nearly drowning.
Or Beth´ birthday party in summer when Beth was born in January...they just needed it so Liam could pressure Hope.

That was before Thomas reverted to his old ways. Liam feels like he gave him his chance but he kept manipulating Hope emotionally and at one point Hope felt that way herself.

I think it is quite simple. Sheila is linked to Finn. Finn lives in the house with Kelly, so if he interacts with Sheila there is a chance Kelly would too. Also, Sheila saved Kelly. that is why she was mentioned. Thats all. It isn't that Beth doesn't matter. She is just not relevant in the story.

Liam mentioned BEth in relation to Thomas which makes sense.

Kids are forgotten on soaps until they are being used as a plot point when Douglas last mentioned meanwhile his parents have been together for months at this point.

But I could see down the road Beth rebelling if Thomas and Hope actually become a couple. I would love to see that.

I see that too. I think they’re setting her up to be the Steffy of that generation, complaining about her parents not being together.

Hayes may be that way too if Steffy ends up with Liam (I hope not) and I guess they (Beth and Hayes) will bond.

I don’t really want this though. I don’t want Beth whining about her parents. Even if these kids don’t have the perfect nuclear family, they still have it better than so many other children out there.

ReturnedBBFan, 11/20/2023, 7:45PM (104 days ago) @Ilovebizzie

Unfortunately children in soaps are only used as plot points.

I will say though that the portrayal of Hope in mom mode is terrible, we get to see Steffy taking care or hanging with her kids or mentioning her kids. It's not a lot but enough to establish her role as a mom. They also pop up every once in a while. Zilch with Beth, no wonder they call her invisiBeth. We also see Liam interact more with Kelly, hear about her spending time with him and nada for Beth.

I completely expect that Beth will grow up with a major chip on her shoulder. We had Taylor "good girl"/Brooke "bad girl", then Hope was the "good girl" to Steffy's "bad girl" and I can see Beth being the "bad girl" to "Kelly's" good girl if this soap is around so long.

The show won’t be on long enough for Beth to grow up unless they make an overnight change. I understand the thing with child actors. My problem is ever since Beth returned to her parents , it’s as if she’s a reminder of all the bad things people did to take and keep her from her parents. It’s as if they are trying to bury her story. It was a powerful story but to me the show wants to make characters good who did evil and blame their mistakes on immaturity. So I think it’s writers regret. Flo and Thomas are forever burdened by their roles and they should be. I wish shoe would work with the reality they created than gaslight fans. It may not be fact but it’s how I feel.
