    You kissed her? (Soaps.com)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of July 16 - 20:


    Two storylines were featured on "B&B" this week. One was the dreaded triangle, and the other the tale of multi-tasking Marcus and his ill-fated wedding day.

    Hope/Liam/Steffy.
    The latest development that has me puzzled as the never-ending triangle story continues, is Brooke wanting Liam to tell Hope every detail of 'what happened in Italy' with Steffy. Now that Hope has 'won' by marrying Liam, it would be much more like Brooke to want to sweep 'what happened in Italy' under the rug so Hope can continue to live the fairytale in blissful ignorance. 'What happened in Italy' is nothing new for Liam, so if this behavior so concerns Brooke, why did she even want Hope to marry him at all? In any case, Liam told Hope enough to get a good rise out of her. She had her hissy fit, forgave everyone involved, and seems keen to go back to living the dream. Of course, we all know that's not going to last. Despite Steffy's new glassy-eyed zen approach to life, and her willingness to delete the video that had become her lifeline, the full story of 'what happened in Italy' is bound to come out. There's a certain anticipation in seeing Hope's reaction, and the fallout, but realistically, it's time to put Liam with one partner for longer than a week or two and move on to other characters on the show. Played. Out.


    Uh oh. (Soaps.com)
    Marcus's secret.
    We should have known, when Marcus's texting started being the topic of conversation, that we were headed for a PSA storyline, but somehow we didn't. It was an unexpected shock when he hit Anthony while texting and driving. I love to be taken by surprise and this fit the bill! Many thought that Marcus would have skeletons coming out of his closet before his wedding, never imagining something like this. It's an effective storyline - Marcus isn't a bad guy, yet he caused this horrible event to occur. His guilt, alongside his desire to hide the fact that he'd been texting while driving, really upped the tension factor in the hospital scenes. Meanwhile, viewers were pathetically grateful for the scenes involving characters other than those in the Liam/Steffy/Hope triangle - Stephanie and Dayzee, Donna and Eric, Rick and Caroline, Pam, Caroline and Thomas - bliss! As the wedding got underway, Marcus made the decision, with a little help from Thomas, to go forward without telling Dayzee that Anthony was in the hospital and he was responsible. Now this is going to come back and bite him worse than he ever thought possible - the fabulous Baker boys have shown up at the door! After all this comes out, do you think Dayzee should forgive Marcus? Vote in Soaps.com's B&B Marcus’s Betrayal poll.

    It's so true, fans were pathetically grateful for the sight of anyone other than the PARENTS of Liam, Hope and Steffy wringing their hands and whining about their childrens' love lives, over and over and over and OVER again. Terminally boring. Why either Taylor or Brooke would want her daughter with a man who can change his mind about a lifelong commitment in less than five minutes is beyond. me. I would be advising my daughter to run as fast as she could in the other direction. Too much romanticizing, not enough sense.

    As nice as the change of pace was, however, the Marcus story has not grabbed me yet. The wedding was way too rushed, we went from not seeing them for weeks to "'let's get married tomorrow." They are getting married with a huge untold truth that we know will come out and ruin everything. Dayzee will probably run toward Thomas, and he will be there for her. And where are Amber and Rosie? No mention.

    They throw the lovely Anthony back on the screen and then they run over him. I get the whole PSA thing, but it ALL seems too "out of the blue." The entire story needed another couple of weeks.

    Dramaqueen333, I don't usually "call" out bloggers out but I have to totally agree with you on this one where Marcus/Dayzee storyline is concerned. I dont' feel that their story is "strong" enough to even grab my attention. What I really want to see the writers aren't giving it to me - the Taylor/Thorne/Thomas/Steffy/Bill takeover. We were just left high and dry on this one, like it was totally forgotten. These people got these shares for a reason and I think the writers should invest in this storyline. All this work to getting these shares back and then what?

    The Dayzee character is boring; she never really did "catch" me. I thought maybe they'd put some friction between them with the African American girl who was modelling for Amber and Rick in the heels. She looked like she could do it.

    And honestly, I really don't want this Rick/Caroline/Thomas storyline. I'm getting tired of this. Aren't you? I won't be surprised if B&B come to a close really soon.

    I am so over with Liam/Hope and stuffy. I am so sick of Hope throwing in the towel to Steffy. I really try hard not to get into this Soap but I'm always drawn to it. The characters never do as you'd like them. I'm really hoping that Hope doesn't be a fool and just hand Liam over on a platter to Steffy. She really get on my nerves with that.

    I think that if Stephie were really to move on Liam would be able to focus and realize it is Hope that he truly want. I hope Brooke can talk some since into her daughter, however Liam is so weak, he'll probably go running back to Stephie.
