    Tellin' it like it is. (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of October 29 - November 2:

    "B&B" continues to be a more well-rounded show - the change to focus on several storylines instead of just one has been a breath of fresh air!

    Run to the hills.
    Wow, it's hard to get one's mind around Katie's delusional thinking, but it's certainly making for some intense scenes. The rundown apartment with the morphing paintings made it clear that Katie's really tripping! I'm wondering what on earth she'll do next.

    About that night...
    Hope's focus has shriveled to Liam lying about 'that night' with Steffy at the nightclub. Rick began to tell her the truth on Monday, but by Friday still hadn't got around to it. In the meantime, Liam stumbled on to Hope at Forrester and she was about to do some flirting until she remembered he was actually there looking for Steffy. Please, Hope, do us all a favor and go back to dating Oliver - we all want to see more of him and it might even make you seem less annoying. Maybe. Thanks.

    Hawaiian, er, Aspen vacation.
    Brooke and Bill moved quickly to follow Katie, only to find she'd led them on a wild goose chase. I love how Bill took the time to insult Liam's Hawaiian shirt at the height of the crisis. Too funny. Steffy and Liam's romance in Aspen has been light and fun to watch - interesting to see Liam noticing what qualities she brings out in him too. As for Brooke finding Bill appearing to have overdosed - I don't believe it. That's not in Bill's character at all.

    Lovin' the vision! (CBS)
    Alive in his heart.
    Stephanie and Eric's scenes had me choked up this week, as did the scenes with Dayzee. Eric was right about the house - it will never be quite as alive again when she's gone.

    Forrester drama.
    It's been great to see more of Taylor, Marcus, Thorne, and Oliver around Forrester. This week, Thomas made his announcement about his new vision - which sounded alright to me, although Forrester needs to retain some of that fusty old wood paneling charm as a nod to their legacy and couture line. That said, it was highly entertaining to see Rick grow increasingly disgruntled as he learned he would be stuck on the disastrous Hope For The Future line with his sister, and not even allowed to enjoy the lingerie line anymore as a consolation. Additionally, Rick learned that Caroline and Thomas would be the new power couple of Forrester Creations - outplayed at his own game I'd say! Caroline's enthusiasm for Thomas' vision certainly isn't likely to help Rick's headache. In fact, Caroline may find herself in hot water with Rick if bored Hope gets involved with her camera phone. Friday's scenes with Taylor calling out Rick and Hope were a hoot. Finally someone told Hope the truth about her tying her line (and her endless press conferences) too closely into her personal life. Wait 'til Brooke hears... Thomas may or may not be a mess as CEO, but it sure is shaking things up over there. What do you think of Thomas' vision for Forrester? Let us know by voting in's B&B Thomas’ Vision poll.

    please tell me bill od'd and is leaving the show and Katie will come claim her kid. That would make my day, Maybe with Brooke calling out to Liam instead of calling 911 will be to late for dollar bill. I hate his character and think they need to just cast him, liam steffy and rick out of the show all together...maybe Taylor as well.....just sayin

    Waiting for Ric to tell Hope what he did to break her up with Lima. Don't like Bill with Brooke!
    Need Hope to be pregnant, but guess she is not.
    Storyline with Stphanie to sad. Don't like it at all.
    Couldn't she have just gone off to see one of her
    daughters and then die.
    Still like Hope with Liam. Do not like Bill at all as the
    whole truth,never came out of what he did to Hope and Liam! He's gets away with so much!........

    Taylor's scenes with Rick and Hope Friday just emphasized to me Taylor's hypocritical nature. Yes she did have a point about Hope tying her lines to close to her personal life but Taylor had a lot of nerve saying Hope had an affair with a married man (Liam who was separated from Steffy)...did Taylor conveniently forget her own daughter's history with married men? Rick and/or Hope should've brought that up.

    Speaking of Liam and Taylor's daughter Steffy though...Steffy saying Friday to Liam that her thing is "Love the one you're with." SERIOUSLY?! Was that her thing when she went after Bill and then went after Liam while he was with Hope? I will say it's things like this that really show Liam and Steffy deserve each other.

    Taylor had not right talking to Rick and Hope like she did. Just because she has Stephanie's proxy don't make her have any rights in the company . She needs to let her baby Thomas fight his own battles. He has to have Mommy do that for him.Poor whittle baby. Oh we'll I am counting the days until Liam waffles again.

    Please tell me that Katie dies and Bill gets to raise Will without that pitiful banshee.

    Katie needs to stop acting crazy and step up and be the strong women she is and put Bill in his place and reveal him for what he is a ---hole and just be a great mother

    I don't like Taylor !!! She is suppose to b this great women but yet it's always ok when her kids r hurting people but when the show is on the other foot she acts like a crazy mom
