So when will Jack and Li Finnegan arrive in Los Angeles? Jack, Finn’s father, will appear on July 30th, while Li, Finn’s mother, will arrive on August 2nd. King and Matsuda both began filming on June 9th. It sounds like they’ll arrive shortly before Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) gives birth to their grandson.
Rumors of Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan’s (Tanner Novlan) backstory have run rampant in recent weeks. Viewers first began eyeing him suspiciously when he was briefly a suspect in the murder mystery surrounding Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero).
More recently, a spoiler from Head Writer and Executive Producer Bradley Bell suggested that Finn’s birth mother was already a familiar face on the B&B canvas, leading fans to speculate that everyone from Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Quinn (Rena Sofer) to Shauna (Denise Richards) could be Finn’s mom.
So how do we square Bell’s insider information with Li’s casting? Entertainment Weekly promises that Finn’s backstory will be “very dramatic”, so we’d best just buckle ourselves in! Click here for a look at the new characters.
