    It's love! (Soaps.com)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of March 19 - 23:


    The Hope and Liam drama was broken up this week by some Stephanie and Brooke scenes, some Marcus and Dayzee scenes, and some comic relief. Check it out:

    Denial.
    Dr. Stacy has her work cut out for her! Hope showed up at therapy this week claiming to be blissful now that Steffy's left town, and 'over' Brooke accidentally boinking Oliver at her graduation party. Considering the flashbacks, I'd say she's got a ways to go yet. It was interesting that Hope's father, Deacon, was brought up in the session. I'd love to see him back on "B&B," as long as he would be allowed to stir it up like he used to, and not be limited to discussing his daughter's love life. Anyway, I was annoyed at Hope telling her therapist that everything was on track and hunky-dory when she's popping pills in order to handle intimacy with Liam - 'fess up!

    As long as you don't cook.
    The Brooke/Stephanie scenes were so good this week as always. Stephanie's facial expressions as Brooke gushed all over her were hilarious, as were her droll one-liners. I would have enjoyed seeing more flashbacks though - this pair has had so many memorable scenes. Stephanie and Brooke facing off over the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle has been ideal because (so far) they are butting heads, but not at war.

    A bad feeling.
    Katie back-pedaling with regard to her advice to Hope was a realistic story point - it makes sense for her to question her motives in advising Hope to go ahead and be intimate with Liam, given that they easily could have been colored by her desire to get back at Steffy. What still puzzles me is that Katie never once, even in her own thoughts, seems to worry that a single Steffy might present a problem for her own marriage - now that would be a realistic concern.


    Ahh...that pill. (Soaps.com)
    Step-Mommy.
    I loved Marcus's proposal to Dayzee! Sure, they haven't been written as one of the most exciting couples to hit Daytime, but Marcus comes across so genuine and subtly sexy, and Dayzee is a breath of fresh air as a soap character. The proposal made me smile. It was only tainted by the spotlight immediately swinging back to Hope. Marcus and Dayzee even spent time discussing the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle while celebrating alone later - overkill!

    Hypocrite.
    I guess there's nothing like seeing someone who has put themselves on a pedestal take a tumble, because it was hard not to relish Maggie's mother confronting Hope in the cafe. That said, I have to agree with Liam that it was utterly over-the-top - she was reacting to a kiss between a single woman and a man who is legally separated, and this isn't the dark ages. In today's world most people move on with their love lives once they are legally separated. However, in Hope's case, she set herself up for such a reaction by publicly declaring herself to be a paragon of virtue, so she'll have to deal with the fallout of her subsequent choices now. Bottom line - I'm exasperated with Hope and her storyline, and am relieved to be able to find some comic relief in her new zest for pill-popping. Isn't it awesome how addicted soap characters quake, sob, and/or gasp dramatically until they get that pill into them? Love it. How about Hope's laid back attitude and wacky laughter later? How could that dumbass Liam not have realized she was on something! Is Hope the worst kind of hypocrite? Vote in Soaps.com's Hope poll.

    Tabloid train wreck.
    You had to laugh at the scene at Forrester with Ridge ranting about the PR nightmare and demanding that Hope move out of Liam's place. Of course Brooke narrowed her eyes at him in outrage, and Hope stomped her foot and refused. Then there was Bill over at Spencer, practically rubbing his hands together with the glee and luck of it all - what a bunch!

    Happy 25th Anniversary "B&B!"

    All in all, a pretty good week on B&B. I don't feel too sorry for Hope, she is getting what she put in motion. Doesn't Liam see that there is something going on with this person he is supposed to love to deeply? And as for Brooke, she seems to think that as long as they are in love and sex is happening, everything is fine. Love that Marcus and Dayzee are engaged, and the scene with Marcus doing the asking was so touching. He is a charmer and Dayzee, adorable. I hope they become a stronger couple with a STORY very soon. Ridge was a trip, ranting and raving about the mess with Hope. Good to see Stephanie paying attention, since Brooke is clueless. Still rooting for Steffy.

    The scandals in this family have always been a part of the LA press. Ridge is still defending STeffy and it is sickening! If Hope holds a press conference they will eat her up with questions that she does not want to answer. Eric and stephanie back together and a celebration. Rerun.

    Marcus doesn't seem to have a storyline on this show. He is a little connected to different characters. Just don't see the need for this character.

    how dare they put hope down have they forgotten what stephy did to her.m first she tried to get oliver and then she tried it with liam and did everything she could to get him away from hope she kissed him knowing that hope and liam were in a relationship but she didnt care stephy is more like brooke then hope is but at least brooke and ridge were in love ,liam was not in love with stephy he was in love with hope but that made no difference to her he belonged to hope first and if she had left them alone they would still be together so lay off of hope how about talking about how wrong stephy is for once

    Ridge is a BIG Hypocrite. If any of you have been watching B&B for a long time, remember Ridge and Brooke caused plenty of gossip for the company. Ridge didn't think it was so bad then. I can't stand Ridge. Haven't for a good while. I feel sorry for Hope. Yes, she did bring this on herself but where was everyone before she talked to the press? Where were you then Ridge?

    TEAM STEFFY ALL THE WAY!!! Hope on dope, just cant cope..lol
    Steffy will get her HUSBAND back and Hope will be a lost cause, she needs to let go and go back to Oliver!!! then she can go back to being her NORMAL self, The Princess!!!
    Hope will have an overdose if shes not careful, sorry Hope you are in the Big Leagues, if you cant hang then move on!!!

    I have been watching this soap since day 1, I guess the writers forgot how Brooke was the same person that Amber is right now, she was trampy, manipulative, and a con.
