Inside Bold and the Beautiful's Grizzly Twist
Jennifer Gareis by Monty Brinton/CBS
Watch out, she's off her meds again. Pam Douglas, the hilarious, bipolar baddie played by Alley Mills on
The Bold and the Beautiful
, is about to take her villainy one step too far. On August 28 29, she follows her archenemy, Donna (Jennifer Gareis), up to the Forresters' mountain cabin, where
Donna makes the mistake of mocking Pam's famous lemon bars and telling her she's off her rocker. Deeply hurt and outraged, Pam knocks her out, ties her up, douses her with honey and leaves her to be killed by a bear.
"This tops everything Pam's ever done," says Mills, best known as the mom on
The Wonder Years
. "For a while, my character was more Lucy Ricardo with her antics, but now that she's stopped taking her medications, she's gone into Sybil land."
Though the bear (a 600-pound, 8-foot bruiser named BamBam) is a trained professional with top credits, from
, Mills says he "was too dangerous for Jennifer and me to be anywhere near him. We shot our scenes, then the bear shot his."
So where does Pam go from here? "Behind bars?" says Mills with a laugh. "I have no idea where the writers are taking this. All I know is that, for a while, Pam will be on the lam. With a gun." -
