    Eric to the rescue! (
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of May 28 - June 1:

    It was a short week for "B&B" what with the Memorial Day holiday, so the breakdown begins on Tuesday at the Genoa City prison...

    Tuesday - Tortured Father Routine.
    I could just feel Deacon's struggle with wanting to be released from prison, but not wanting to harm his daughter. It will be very interesting to see how things shake out. Brooke's reaction to Deacon's name being bandied about seemed way over the top - it may be undesirable to have him around, but that's about it. It's telling that she went to the extreme of visiting Stacy's office and trying to control what she's telling her client, Hope. Brooke might want to schedule herself in for a session or two! At Spencer, Katie shared her baby news with Karen and Danielle, who were stood up by Bill. Bill, of course, was on his jet boasting to Justin about his plan to rid Liam of Hope. Justin's phone connected to Marcus's phone, and he overheard the braggy bits. Uh oh.

    Wednesday - Butt Dial Dilemma.
    Today picked up with Marcus heading over to Spencer, where he got in Justin's face about the conversation he overheard. Justin put a stop to the inquiries right quick, but it's anyone's guess what Marcus might do with the information now. Whatever it is, he's sure taking his time about it. Meanwhile, Liam showed up at Steffy's office to 'talk', which we now know means hug, kiss, and get her to whisper, "Cha cha cha" in his ear. She played her wedding bells countdown alarm for him - set to go off at midnight when the divorce would become final. They have a knack for coming up with corny stuff on this show, not to mention repetitive - we've heard the bong of those wedding bells about a dozen times since then; anyone remember 'Pose'? Back over at Spencer, Bill finally had his meeting with Danielle and amused Karen to no end by complaining that Danielle hit on him throughout the interview. Oh, Bill.

    Off to meet the wizard. (
    Thursday - The Clock Is Ticking.
    Oh, the clock was ticking alright...slowly. Liam still seemed to be torn - probably a sure sign he shouldn't be jumping into another marriage if he lets the current one end. Steffy's family rallied around her, as she played her wedding bells and tried to be Zen about the whole thing, while over at Forrester, Brooke complained to Eric that everyone seemed to be on 'Team Steffy' and Hope didn't have a wedding dress designer. It was great to see Eric for whatever reason. Next, Hope arrived, spoke about her values, accepted Eric's offer of a gown, and then went back to talking about her latest obsession - not having a father. At home, Liam left that pesky door unlocked again - twice - and had to endure brainwashing attempts by both Bill and Ridge, who, in a surprisingly entertaining turn of events, suggested that Liam get a backbone! You'd know, Ridge! Liam promised to man up and called Steffy to come over...

    Friday - After Midnight.
    Liam welcomed Steffy at the Malibu house with candlelight and wine. Therefore, viewers could surmise that he (a) had decided to stay married to her, (b) was hoping for a seduction, (c) was dumping her while leading her on, or in the most likely scenario, (d) still hadn't decided what the hell he was doing. In any case, their flirtation was mature and sexy, and wildly different from what he has with Hope. I found it interesting that they had Hope dressed like a school girl in her scenes, which made for a real contrast with womanly Steffy. Brooke and Ridge crossed paths long enough for her to extract a promise from him to walk Hope down the aisle, and to remind him that Steffy is second-best, just like Taylor. Later, Taylor and Stephanie showed up at Forrester to pow-wow with Ridge over what Liam might do now that he'd called Steffy over to the house. Brooke and Hope indulged in more talk about the beautiful wedding in Italy. Back at Liam's, he and Steffy talked in circles, but she still didn't get an answer to her question about their marriage. Honestly, midnight can't come soon enough for any of us! What do you think Liam had planned? Let us know in's Liam’s Plan poll.

    Let the clock chime a dozen times - PLEASE! They have to change the name of this show; it's the same episode day after day. The Repetitious and the Tedious?

    The funniest thing (besides Bill's arrogance concerning Danielle) was Hope saying it would be "awkward" to have Ridge walk her down the aisle, but that Deacon should do it. Huh? Your mother's husband who raised you and whom you called Dad until a few weeks ago would be awkward, but the sperm-donor guy you haven't laid eyes on since you were an infant, who used to be married to your sister and who your mother despises wouldn't be? Just proves how immature the girl is.

    And Liam, who claims to be committed to Hope, but keeps going to visit Steffy for some cha-cha-cha is just as bad as Steffy pining over a man who can't make a choice. Did she learn nothing from her mother?

    Get a new story! Use some of the OTHER actors/characters you employ. Please?

    Liam needs to man up and stay with Steffy. I agree with Bill
    Hope is NO good for him. She resulted to pills because of the press. Grow up girl. I am so tired of Brooke and Hope getting
    thier happly ever after,and Taylor and Steffy always get hurt physically and emotionally. Hopeless should have been put into a drug rehab center for what she did to Steffy on the slopes. But no she gets Liam. What is wrong with you B and B no wonder
    you did not get nominated for best soap this year.

    Steffy certainly is not deserving of happiness with Liam.She wilfully and coveteously meddled in their relationship and even now continues to connive and manipulate her way with Liam.Also, Ridge has shown his bias for HIS daughter, can't blame him but should'nt blame Hope for her feelings either.Ridge and Taylor, at the outset, should have discouraged Steffy from meddling.Liam did go to Ridge to ask of Hope's hand in marriage.Iam a neutral fan, but want to see right done.

    Yes Liam has been whimpy all along, but notice that he and Hope can and do have conversations while with Steffy,she never lets him get a word in, another form of manipulation. Liam and Hope are at the same level of maturity and will develop together.Steffy is too controlling for Liam.Hope's outfit with that necktie??? But Steffy's shorts and plunging neckline, was clearly indicative of her intentions. She should have dressed more conservatively.

    Why,Ridge,Taylor,Stephanie & his own father leave Liam alone, he is a big boy, he can decide who he wants to be with, all the pressure from everyone, if I would have been his place without telling anyone just go to Vegas get married, and have a real wedding in Italy, how did Bill get away when he paid the doctor, now he he after Deacon, it shld backfire, Deacon shld give his daughter away, Bill is a worst criminal than Deacon

    Posted by BrownGirl1 at Sunday, June 03 2012 10:55 PM

    someone shld go after Bill for what he did to ruin his son's wedding, he thinks he can buy the entire world, doesn't he have a company to run? for all the things he did, his secretary should confess Katie, just feeling sorry for Hope,even bug the doctor's office, she shld call Katie & Liam what Bills next plans are, He shld pay for what he did, may be he wants Stefy more than his son? Doesn't Liam realize why his father forcing him to marry Steffy & not Hope?

    Posted by BrownGirl1 at Sunday, June 03 2012 11:38 PM

    Its not Hope thinking about Deacon, but her DR.Stacy, why the last movement, I thought Hope was going back for pills, Thank God she didn't, she is so cute,honest, doesn't play games likeSteffy, Liam was in love with Hope not Steffy, she stole him from Hope.. They both r so good together, (Hope & Liam)she waited all this time for him, Bill shld go back to Steffy, may be that is the reason he is trying his best his son to marry Steffy,pls someone let Katie know the things he did behind her back, The receptionist shld tell Katie how long he has been planning to break Liam & Hope

    Posted by chairer at Monday, June 04 2012 01:55 PM

    Finally Steffy has seen the light and realizes Liam's love for Hope.She fought a good fight and loathed to concede to Hope (a Logan).Jealousy of Hope has been her motivation to persue Liam in the first place. It follows that she would make the decision for Liam as she has done in so many things in their relationship,her planning and organizing the Aspen wedding without Liam's input or knowledge,ignoring his request to respect the engagement and continued to persue him. Finally, let right be done.
