    She's gone. (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of November 26 - 30:


    Despite a few nit-picky items, it was another solid week on "B&B." Here are some thoughts on the happenings:

    Sing me to sleep, baby girl.
    Whether you love, or love to hate, Brooke, she came through for Stephanie in the end. She was soft-spoken, nurturing, and just strong enough to lean on. I was tearful as Brooke tried to keep singing through the moment she realized Stephanie was gone.

    Forrester foul-up.
    It was totally bizarre-o for Thomas to have called an important business meeting while his grandmother was dying, but Eric lingering around the place afterward to watch video footage instead of rushing back to Stephanie's side took the cake.

    Big Bear theory.
    There were some very touching scenes at the cabin following Stephanie's death - Brooke dazed with grief, Eric comforting Pam, Eric and the martini - but I kept wondering when we were really going to see Eric break down. As for Bill and Brooke kissing, as much as I'd been feeling their chemistry, that wasn't the time I wanted to see them finally give in.


    Tay's tips. (CBS)
    Our Little Family.
    It was very unrealistic how Katie went from the darkest dregs of depression to happy-go-lucky following her panic attack. So it was no surprise that Bill and Brooke looked shocked to walk through the door and see her lipsticked and laughing with Will in her arms - it was touch-and-go for a few minutes. As much as they love Katie, they had just experienced the first stirrings of passion for each other as well, so the air was thick with all sorts of emotions, which both Katie and Taylor picked up on. Soapy good.

    Team Spencer.
    I found it a little weird for Bill to jump right into having a party for Katie. Again, it was unreal for Katie to suddenly be fine and up for all of this.

    Taylor's tips.
    I thought it was funny how Taylor stopped by Brooke's house and wound up giving her tips on learning to be alone - since she gained so much experience every time Brooke took Ridge away. Too much! In any case, things deteriorated after Bill's name came up. Brooke ended up reliving her bonding moments with Bill, who came to the door and kissed her. Or did he? Could she have dozed off and been dreaming it?

    History repeating.
    Hope seemed to be grieving Stephanie with the others at Forrester, but it turned out she was mostly shedding tears about Liam. After rehashing the now skewed memory of how it all went bad with Dayzee, Hope later found herself over at Bill's reliving Italy with Liam himself. In the meantime, Caroline had found out what 'Bill did in Italy', and is hell bent on using it to upset the apple cart. Doh! Dear Caroline, if you blab and cause the return of the dreaded triangle you may never be forgiven. Nothing has changed really - Hope still looks and acts like a twelve year-old who isn't ready for an adult relationship. I've no idea why we have to keep revisiting this nonsense. Do you want to see the Steffy/Liam/Hope triangle again, or do you think Hope should move on? Vote in Soaps.com's B&B Triangle Revival poll.

    Thank you Candace for the opportunity to be able to voice my opinion about the dreaded Liam/Steffy/Hope triangle . The answer No to revival of triangle. Firstly, totally agree Hope is still acting like 12yr old she needs life
    Long therapy sessions to address all her issues she has about life is general until she has some of that therapy she doesn't need anything else except some time for herself, finishing her college education and maybe some time away at Forrestor international

    Definetly NO RETURN of triangle Mr Bell has finally got it right between Liam and Steffy done some rewriting of their story. Liam and Steffy have gone from starting off as friends turning into best friends and from that friendship have develope a beautiful love and respect for each other stop going back and forth Mr Bell between the two couples Liam and Steffy should be the endgame their are other challenges married couples can face besides not being able to make up your mind who you want to be with. Liam and Steffy storyline has developed into a believable really romantic love story why would you mess with that give them the ending they deserve. LOVE LOVE LOVING STEAM THE DREAM TEAM

    I think that was very Incon.of Tom calling for Emergancy meeting when He knew that His grandmother was dying.. I'm glad Brooke was with Stephine when She died.At Least Stephine
    did not dye all alone. As for Hope, I think she is showing that she is a grown women..and putting other people's needs before hers. I still think she Should end up with Liam..
    After all her & Liam were in Love with each other First before other people started to Interfair in their Relationship.

    Loved the ending for Stephnaie. Please no more triangle, but as for Hope acting like a 12 year old what does thar make Liam and steffy? Three? Hope has shown way more maturity than those other 2 idiots

    the triangle has to end. And I would say Hope acts 13 make it more realistic. Give her a Blair pleated skirt knee his and a lollipop and that's her

    End the triangle. Hope is much to childish to be in any relationship. She needs to move on with new adventures in her life that does not include a boy friend because she does not understand yet that because you fall in love that does not mean that you have to marry him. You do not always marry your first supposely love ask Oliver.

    Brooke did not last long on her pedestal. The kiss with Bill was untimely and disrespectful to Katie and Stephanie. Hope they never let it happen again. Hope pining for Liam is old. Move on. Katie's miraculous turnaroundmade the whole post partum storyline become unrealistic.

    If any is immature its Steffy! Her issues didn't just disappear because she got the guy. She's as twisted as they come. Hope has proven to be very mature in comparison. She was never hounding Liam at every turn campaigning for someone's love and attention.
