    Liam won't find out! (Soaps.com)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of April 23 - 27:


    This week brought us round three of 'Liam, Hope, and Steffy go on location while Bill manipulates'. As much as viewers may love the show, and understand the need to build up the younger generation, there's simply no denying the frustration with the ongoing focus on this same triangle and the repetitiveness of these on location themes. Here's the breakdown:

    Out of the picture.
    At this point it would be amazing to see Bill do something other than pace around his office and enact diabolical schemes concerning Liam. How quickly he's forgotten that Liam found out about all of his previous plots and nearly disowned him to boot! His three-day argument with Justin this week became very repetitive, and it just seems both of these characters could be doing much more interesting things. Also, can we get the white tufts at the side of Bill's head dyed? He's beginning to resemble a male Cruella de Ville. For insight on Bill and Katie's storyline, read Soaps.com's interview with Heather Tom.

    Cutting loose.
    It will be interesting to see how Amber will play her cards now that she's lost Hope's backing. It was curious that Hope didn't rat out Amber to Brooke as her dealer. Guess they're saving that little nugget for later.

    A little extra 'oomph'.
    It was funny how Steffy described Hope's pill popping as a 'little extra oomph to get through the day' - very diplomatic. As for Hope's contention that Liam is all she needs in the way of support now, that's a bit of a heavy anchor to hang around a young guy's neck. I don't think it bodes well.


    So tired of this! (Soaps.com)
    On the wings of love.
    Steffy sharing a flight with Liam and Hope was awkward at best, dumb at worst. Why didn't Hope and Liam take the Spencer jet? In any case, it's hard to believe these three are on their third 'trip' with basically the same tug-of-war and events occurring. Tired.

    Take two Aspen and call me in the morning.
    Between Steffy being watered down, Liam being the least dynamic object of love's desire ever, and Hope's annoying laughter, this trip to Aspen hasn't started off looking too good. That said, the bit with Hope being chased by the paparazzi set to the Monkees' tune, 'Last Train to Clarksville', was just cute enough to save Friday's episode from being a complete dud. Let's hope something extraordinary happens next week.

    Yes, Hope's ANNOYING LAUGH. OMG, just shut up Hope, this show is unwatchable with her on it.

    Hope is protecting her drug source subconsciously.
    The writers can't out Amber because PPP wouldn't have the means to get more drugs.

    Go ahead Hope pop another pill, the same pills that you promised Liam you were done with!!! I knew it was a lie, she was still carrying them around with her! OMG give me a break, cant wait for you to really hit rock bottom Hope, so you can finally get off that high horse you been on all of your life!!! If you cant cope with the stress/ anxiety, remove yourself from the equation, get a clue will you?! Steffy and Liam are married so let go already, and find some one else to be with like Oliver, then you can have your own happily ever after... in the meantime,Steffy patience is a virtue, you and Liam will finally have your happily ever after soon ( I hope she is prego)..lol that would be so great...TEAM STEFFY ALL THE WAY, (WITH $BILL IN HER CORNER!) Brooke and Rick know where they can go..to Hell! Justin give it up, and go find some work to do...lol

    I thought that scene was silly and left me feeling dry. And wondering what the hell was that? I was looking for some drama and got here comes the monkees. That was disappointing. And would not care to watch again.

    I think the writters could do a little better job with Hope, they could let her grow up.With that being said when Hope was with Oliver,Steffy tried to get her hooks in him.Next came Liam who I might add Steffy tricked into getting married,so I think it is time Steffy reaps what she sowed,let Hope and Liam be together
