    Mmm that kiss... (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of December 17 - 21:


    The impending return of the dreaded triangle weighed heavily this week, so "B&B" didn't seem as enjoyable as it has been, although the Taylor/Brooke/Katie/Bill scenario brought plenty of drama. Some thoughts:

    The big confession.
    Nothing surrounding Rick's confession really makes sense - it's just an excuse to kick us back into dreaded triangle mode. Why does Caroline suddenly have this great respect and concern for Hope? The last time I recall them interacting, Hope was chastising her for trying to pit Thomas and Rick against each other. Why is Rick only telling half of the truth? His lie wasn't just to keep Hope from reconciling with Liam, but also to propel her into Thomas' arms so that he could move in on Caroline. It's also rather convenient that Hope has forgotten all of the issues she had with Liam save for that one incident on that one night. Gah.

    Trash-talking.
    What was up with Caroline getting in Steffy's face? Why the sudden dislike? Caroline should have been established as a solid character by now, but the girl has been all over the place as the plot dictates. There's no explanation for why she likes or dislikes the people she does - and the person she was first sketched out to be would never have been attracted to the smarmy Rick. She's a confusing character.

    We never have to talk about this again.
    Dear Katie, you are on "The Bold and the Beautiful." The kiss between Brooke and Bill will be talked about again. Repeatedly. You are fooling yourself. Katie may believe they've all put the kiss behind them, but she isn't going to forget about it, Bill said he'll never forget it, and if Brooke can't put it out of her mind, it's game over. The writing is on the wall, I just wonder what it is going to take to upset the apple cart and make Brooke and Bill go there again.


    Homecoming. (CBS)
    Confidentiality?
    So, if someone guesses the truth about your patient you're allowed to roll with it? I couldn't believe Taylor discussed Katie, Bill, and Brooke with Steffy, though I found it interesting that Steffy defended Brooke. It was also compelling to see Brooke and Taylor get on common ground briefly while talking about Stephanie - it was a bit of a moment. On the whole, Taylor needs to rein in her personal impulses when practicing as a therapist.

    Surprise!
    Well, Liam came home early to surprise a very happy Steffy and they enjoyed a carefree and passionate reunion. This could only be the precursor to the return of the dreaded triangle. Hope called and obviously very confident that Liam would dump Steffy instantly and take her back, ran into his arms and kissed him. What do you think Liam should do?

    I would like Liam to tell Hope, it means nothing he doesn't care. He will always care and love her but Steffy is the one he wants to spend his life with, he's in love with Steffy.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Enough of Hope and liam.

    liam needs to know what bill and steffy did in italy.even though bill planned it steffy knew bill was behind it.also i think it would be totally wrong for steffy to get pregnant to keep liam and hope apart or lie about being pregnant.give liam and hope an honest chance, for once.they have been in love for so long.have steffy move on.liam was hopes love first

    If Liam truly loves Steffy he should tell Hope it doesn't change anything.Also I want to add the Italy thing was all $Bill, Steffy had nothingto do with it she even told Bill he had better not pull anything that she wanted no more of it!!!

    I like Rick and Caroline. I don't care for Steffy and Liam being together, she threw herself at him, showing no self respect for herself. I think Liam will always yearn for Hope. Steffy can settle for the crumbs? I feel once again Taylor was intrusive and unprofessional in counseling Brooke's little sister. A professional would of said "this is not my place. Let me refer her to a doctor I trust.

    Are you serious.... of course Brooke wants Bill... these writers even forget what they write... Brooke has been with both her daughters men... is everyone forgetting Liam wasn't Hopes first love... she had a man, dumped him because mom slept with him... been all over Liam like her mom tramp that she is... like mother like daughter... these writers need to get their $$it together. Brooke is and has never been anything but a tramp... there isn't one man in the show she hasn't been with.... except maybe the young boys, with the exception of Hope's first man. Give her time, she'll get to Thomas and the others before she's done. She has no morale's. Now she's starting on her sister's men. Hope sounds and acts so pathetic. Get over it already. Grow up! You didn't trust Liam. Why would he want you. You are so childlike. Not innocent, immature, stupid, dumb... get over yourself. You aren't anyone I'd want to look up to. What have you done with your life. Nothing! Steffie has the brains, maturity. These writers need to move on. This Hope thing is getting real old.

    Of course Steffy knew what Bill was doing, why do you think she was fast to get on that plane to Italy after talking to Bill when she had said no to Hope's invite to the wedding???

    Liam and Hope will be forever....and they are going to get back together, very soon. Steffy, you better get that smug off your face....cause you won't know what's hit you very very soon.
