    Nice! (
    "B&B" Breakdown
    week of June 25 - 29:

    Monday - Welcome To The Family.
    Liam and Steffy's 'goodbye' in the hotel suite, as she told him to put a smile on his face and not think about her or 'what happened', was heartwrenching. It was all downhill from there. Well, not totally. There was the unexpected, totally hot kiss between Deacon and Alison - way to leave us wanting more Deacon! Otherwise, the show became a sopping pile of goo, with Ridge forgetting all about Steffy to salve his dented ego and get back in Hope's good graces, and a suddenly watered-down Bill taking heat from Steffy and doing a bizarre 'aw shucks' routine in which he welcomed Hope to the family. What? After the insane lengths he went to trying to prevent this union, and the diatribes he unleashed about Hope? The best case scenario here is that Bill was faking it, because his abrupt turnaround blew the integrity of that aspect of the storyline - it felt as though a wheel came off - suddenly you couldn't really count on anything.

    Tuesday - All Yours.
    Aside from the comedy bits involving Steffy, this episode had little to redeem it. Even the Eric and Stephanie parts weren't stellar. Hope and Liam's wedding may have been a payoff for their fans, but this certainly won't go down in the annals of soap opera history as any great shakes. The couple is essentially boring, the bride is an insipid little girl, and the groom was ready to run off with someone else five minutes before the ceremony. That alone gave the wedding and Liam's vows a ridiculous feel - not to mention the out-of-the-blue acceptance of the groom's father, who had been actively trying to prevent the nuptials up until that morning! Thank goodness for the beautiful Italian scenery.

    Wednesday - The Marching Band Got Lost In Traffic.
    Well, the good news is that Bill appeared to have his cojones back as he dealt with Deacon on the jet. I was sorry to see Deacon depart and hope he'll be back in L.A. soon. Still in Italy, Hope was magically 'unfrozen' now that she was legally married. Please. Happily, we got to see some other characters, as Karen and Danielle were seen in a liplock by Katie, who seemed to think Bill would be fine with his sister being a lesbian. Karen's not so sure, however, having been spooked by their father's attitude. It will be interesting to see how Bill reacts.

    Oblivious. (
    Thursday - Glow Of Love.
    It was amazing to see Thomas and Caroline today. Thomas still acted a little too starry-eyed for my taste, but no matter, they seem like a good match, and it was just such a relief to see a couple that didn't have Liam making up one half of it. It was interesting that they referred to Rick's line being dropped and Rick having moved out of the guesthouse. Huh? In other news, Steffy briefed her family on her current outlook and told Taylor she thinks Bill may have been behind Deacon showing up in Italy. Taylor took the hard line, saying Bill should be in jail if that's the case. Over at Bill's, he was obnoxiously rude to his sister, Karen, when she dropped in at the house, and then proceeded to talk himself up to Katie as he told her how he'd turned over a new leaf where Hope was concerned. Katie wondered if he'd had a personality transplant - judging by how he treated Karen, the answer to that would be 'no'. They headed over to see the doctor, where Bill enjoyed a goofy moment playing in the stirrups! Wow, Bill's certainly displayed a range of moods this week!

    Friday - A Little Sword Necklace.
    Bill continued to be the man of a thousand faces, as today we saw his softer, more vulnerable side in the ultrasound appointment. It was so cute when he joked that they might see a little sword necklace! At Forrester, Steffy told Taylor all about what happened in the hotel room after Hope didn't show up at the church. In Italy, Liam's mind was also on Steffy...and so the triangle churns on. Hope, chirpy and oblivious as ever, decided to call Steffy up to see how she's doing - honestly, this chick should be living in a fairytale castle somewhere with little mice and bunnies as her happy little friends! Gah! What do you think Steffy should do now? Vote in's Steffy’s Situation poll.

    Truer words have never been spoken about how boring Hope and Liam are. The writers will of course keep this triangle going becsuse Steffy is the only thing that makes this couple even remotely intersting. I muted the wedding and nearly barfed during the wedding night.

    I agree with everything except I am not sure Bill was faking it when he accepted Hope into the Spencer family. First, I think there is a grudging respect there now because no matter what he has thrown at her -- gondolas, paparazzi, con-man bio dads, bugs in the therapist's office, etc. -- she ended up with Liam. She won, and he had to accept it, just like he did when Steffy took the Forrester stock away from him. Second, you can usually tell when Bill is being insincere. He smirks and manages to even sound sarcastic. And finally, when Deacon was talking about Hope on the plane home, Bill told him that she is not Deacon's daughter, she is Bill's family now. He wouldn't have said that if he didn't feel protective, and he would have made some snarky comment about how Deacon could have her -- take your daughter, please. Anyway, I think this is all leading up to Bill having to make a choice between his daughter-in-law, and Steffy (if she ends up pregnant with a Spencer heir). What will he do then?

    Can the writers do more on B&B besides recreating the same story line over and over and over. Could u perhaps bring another rich, handsome, successful Man into the storyline for Steffy. I swear, how do these people still have a job? It's a soap opera, u would think the writers could be a bit more Creative! SMH

    Hope brought Liam and Bill together she talked him into pursuing a relationship with his father and Liam is the child like man who can't be faithfull every time there is a problem he turns from one girl to the other

    Just because they made Steffy into a decent person doesn't make her a b#### before. Liam ans Hope would of already been married if it hadn't been for her chasing Liam like a B### in heat.

    I hope that the writers do make Steffy pregnant, because she deserve some happiness in her life after what Brooke and Rick has done to her and all the other Logans, Katie in particular. I hope that Katie does not carry the baby to full term and that she has complications. Hope is an imature little girl and not an adult she is always crying wolf. I hope that Steffy is pregnant because if she is Liam will not let her raise the child by herself because he knows what it is like not to have a father in your life and plus Steffy will not let Hope raise her child at all. Liam still loves Steffy and the marriage to Hope will not work out.

    Hope is an outstanding individual with a lot of class and morals. I guess having morals is boring and lying and cheating like Steffy is exciting. Which of two is a better citizen. HOPE.....

    I thought a reviewer was suppose to be objective. I can tell you don't like Hope.

    I don't believe some people even if this is just a soap why on earth would anyone wish a miscarriage on anyone? Maison that was cruel wishing that on Katie. I like Katie because she is THE only person who can control EVIL Bill in any way

    OMG You are correct on one thing! IT IS A SOAP OPERA!! She was not wishing a miscarriage on a real person! I don't know how anyone can even stand HOPELESS! She can't act and she is boring! AGAIN, we watch soap operas for fantasy and excitement and drama. No one acts like Hope and I don't think I would want to hang around anyone who does! Steff all the way! She is awsome and a great actress. Wish they would have some handsome new man enter the show and tell Liam and Hope BYE BYE. They do need to get more creative! Steff pregnant would be too good!!
