    Gigglepuss. (
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of June 11 – 15:

    Monday - Not Looking For A Parachute.
    On the Forrester jet, Steffy sat wondering how the hell she managed to get herself talked into going along to the wedding, while Liam, idiotically, decided it was important to get all of the discomfort and awkwardness on video. Brooke did some eye-narrowing and whispering about why Steffy came just to help keep things real. Over on the Spencer jet, Bill continued to confide freely in Alison with regard to his sinister plan. Frankly, I’m surprised that Bill is telling her so much – especially since she doesn’t exactly seem to be seeing things his way. It could come back to bite him. At the prison, Bill and Deacon did some more macho posturing and name-calling before heading off to Italy. It’s kind of fun watching these two butt heads.

    Tuesday - A Lover, Not A Killer.
    Today, Bill appeared to make a threat against Deacon’s life, but then claimed he’s a lover, not a killer. Methinks Deacon should put in a call to his ex, Amber, and get the 411 on what Bill’s capable of! In Italy, Hope spent time hanging off Liam’s neck in his suite, and giggling about becoming 'Mrs. Liam Spencer'. Sigh. In another suite, Brooke also did her fair share of giggling as Ridge inexplicably went on and on about his need to find a big, giant olive. Bizarre. Later, Steffy explained to Hope that it was just too weird for her to be there, and said she was leaving.

    Wednesday - Ol’ Ball And Chain.
    Steffy made every effort to leave, snidely telling Bill that Hope and Liam are getting married, and him trying to wish Hope into a breakdown isn’t going to stop it. Too funny. Not to be dissuaded, Bill talked Steffy into staying and they made tracks over to Liam’s suite where Steffy told Hope she’d stand up for her if the offer was still open. This prompted Hope to bounce, clap, and enthuse, "We’re really getting married!" Bill hung around just long enough to make a couple of cryptic comments, and Brooke and Ridge left to go olive hunting.

    Warnings & threats. (
    Meanwhile, Deacon and Alison had some alone time to discuss Bill and his plan. This could be Bill’s undoing. By the pool, Hope explained to Liam why she turned down Ridge’s offer to walk her down the aisle, which really didn't actually make much sense, it just opened the door for Deacon's appearance.

    Thursday - Stiff Upper Lip.
    Today viewers got to enjoy some of the scenery in Italy as Liam and Hope did some sightseeing – I really loved this aspect of the location shoot. Anyway, Hope and Liam found the perfect spot to be married, and he picked her up and spun her around. Cheese overload. Over in the olive grove, Ridge had Brooke chase him as he hid behind the trees. I don’t know if they were supposed to look like carefree forest nymphs or what, but poor Brooke was really huffing and puffing by the time he relented and let her find the big, giant olive. Jeeze, Ridge. The ensuing proposal was very sweet – except for Brooke blurting that she’d forgotten they weren’t married – who forgets that? Back in L.A., it was terrific to see Eric and Stephanie. The looks she gave him while he proposed a toast to Hope and Liam were priceless! In his room in Italy, Deacon cracked me up by asking Bill if he could stop being a tool for five minutes. Perfect.

    Friday - Stubborn Streak.
    Today’s episode was terminally boring other than the bits of Italy we got to see, and the interaction between Steffy and Brooke, which was something slightly different. Otherwise, it was more handholding, kissing, and giggling from Liam and Hope and more of Bill warning Deacon. The 'major change' to the wedding plans came when Hope decided she wanted to wed at the church rather than the grand staircase. Other than possibly being a glitch for Bill, it seemed inconsequential. This episode seemed to drag – it would have been nice to have some real drama and a cliffhanger considering it was a Friday episode on location in Italy.

    Worst show ever today!

    I haven't seen the show yet, but reading about todays way does it appeal to me. I think I'll be fine, just ignoring it. I'll be glad when this idiotic wedding is over.

    Once again the writers make Hope look so innocence. She is so much like her mom, they both think what they do to others is okay, the idea of Brook once again being my stepmom would make me vomit. They are the first to cause trouble if things don't go their way and if someone else plays their game they are bad. I hope Lima decides not to marry Hope and realizes that he loves Steffy. But it seems the writers like the Hope thing better, so i guess I will have to get use to the idea of the Hope, Brook, Liam show or maybe I will stop watching.

    If I were Alison, I would not want to be in a foreign country alone in a farm house with a guy who has been in prison for how many years? There better be a bonus in it for putting up with all this and listening to Bill's plots. I also don't believe more family conversations don't include the ick factor of Bill pushing his son to be with Bill's former mistress. I just don't believe Steffy is so in love with Liam - Bill was more her style. Someone with high aspirations and pushing anyone out of the way who is blocking their path. Also, the Big Olive story was weird, doesn't seem like something Ridge would do. Guess they had to find something for Ridge and Brooke to do besides discussing the kids.

    momviking, All ways making Hope look like the innocence, but on the other hand, to protray this sweet and rightous innocence person, they have her lying out of both sides of her mouth.

    I wonder are we the viewers are suppost to forget what is being said from day to day.

    I wonder who will be the first to figure out that it was Bill who brought Deacon to Italy? Steffy? It certainly won't take a brain surgeon to figure out that Deacon, who hasn't seen or heard from Hope or Brooke for almost two decades, and has no reason to know about the wedding or where it is, didn't break out of prison and make his way to the correct Italian town and church on his own steam. Or maybe, knowing the combined IQ of this bunch, it would take a brain surgeon. Steffy is the only one with an IQ in the triple digits.

    Brooke and Ridge and Hope and Liam make me gag. I actually think Hope is less mature than she was a year ago. And Brooke and Ridge always act like teenagers. As the Valley Girls used to say, "gag me with a spoon!"

    She may be a sweet girl,as long as things go her way, and if they don't Mom will fix it. She is the one who choose the pills from Amber because the Doctor would not give more to her, sweet or spoiled, then it was Amber that got kicked in the butt for helping her, not to say she was sweet, but if you really want the guy then you have to work for it. But not Hope, Mom will do it.

    How does a man let his dad run his life without telling him to backoff!!!!

    Posted by pattykess5 at Wednesday, June 20 2012 05:33 PM

    You really need to fix Liam and Hopes wedding and Don"t let Bill get away with this because it is a lie. I will not watch this show anymore.

    I am so sick of Steffy and her mother!!!! There is only one word that describes those two and we all know what it is!
