The Born Identity, BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
Soap Opera Digest|September 06, 2021
Steffy and Finn’s romantic wedding went off without a hitch — but the same can’t be said for what followed, as B&B reintroduced its most storied villainess, Sheila, in a most dramatic — and consequential — fashion.

After exchanging heartfelt “I do’s” with his beloved, Finn headed to the guest house to check in on a patient. There, lurking in the shadows, was his birth mother, the mother of all evil herself, Sheila, who revealed that though she hadn’t raised him, she had followed his life and career, proudly, from afar. As the initial shock set in (for Finn and for viewers), Tanner Novlan impressively conveyed his character’s simultaneous confusion, awe, and disbelief, while triumphant returnee Kimberlin Brown didn’t miss a beat as, with seeming sincerity, Sheila expressed her longing to connect with her son, and apologized for showing up on his wedding day, insisting she didn’t want to make a scene.

Gaming By Degrees: The Philosophical Journey of Dr. Finn's Games

Early in his career as a self-publishing game designer, Dr. Stephen Finn earned a reputation as a designer of filler games. In fact, Richard Ham, host of the well-known board gaming video series and podcast “Rahdo Runs Through,” has called Finn the “undisputed King of the Filler.” It was a title that Finn embraced. “There was a time,” notes Finn, “when ‘filler’ wasn’t a pejorative term, but I think it’s now becoming one. I was always proud to call myself the King of the Fillers, because I was thinking of ‘filler’ as just a quick thing.” “However, over time, I began to realize that it may be to my detriment and now, I try to avoid it.” Not completely. Finn continues to promote the phrase on his company’s website because “being King of anything is still a good thing.” “I was thinking maybe it would become something bigger.”
