Stephen Logan was absent for much of his daughter Brooke’s life on The Bold and the Beautiful and his portrayer, Patrick Duffy, hasn’t been a regular on the show in a while. However, Duffy always walks back into the part with ease — often just when Brooke needs him the most.

Patrick Duffy – Performer of the Week

Patrick Duffy reprised Stephen along with real-life girlfriend Linda Purl (Lucy) last week on B&B. Stephen played catch-up with Brooke and went into immediate protective-dad mode while Brooke appears to have made peace with her split from Ridge, it’s quite possible that Stephen knows the situation a bit better.

“I wonder how Ridge feels about this,” Stephen wondered. Duffy brings all of Stephen’s history with him when he comes back to B&B. The Logan patriarch is applauding his daughter for making the decision to take an indefinite break from Ridge. However, he knows that the designer may not honor Brooke’s wishes.

Stephen may not have known he was speaking a tad hypocritically as he questioned Ridge’s absence from Brooke’s life given that Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) was on the loose. That didn’t stop him from picking up the phone to have a few words with his former son-in-law.

An exasperated Brooke insisted that wasn’t necessary but Lucy (the always terrific Linda Purl) shot Brooke a look as if to say there’s no stopping your dad when he wants to protect you. Stephen pounced on Ridge over the phone, telling him that his daughter deserves better from him. (He’s unaware that Ridge is keeping close tabs on Sheila with his new partner-in-crime, so to speak, Bill Spencer!)

Frustrated, Stephen can’t quite wrap his head around Ridge’s seeming disinterest in Brooke’s welfare. Lucy did her best to calm Stephen, but little was going to temper his anger at Ridge for not doing everything he can to protect his daughter.

Kudos to Patrick Duffy for bringing passion and protectiveness to his role as Stephen Logan. The good news is we haven’t seen the last of this fan favorite as he’ll be making more appearances as Brooke’s dad.
