Week of December 31 - January 4:
Wow. All characters and stories orbited around the super stale Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle again this week. Give us some of Bill's bumped up coffee! Scary thought: Will "B&B" expect viewers to watch Hope/Liam/Steffy for the next 20 or so years like Taylor/Ridge/Brooke? At least Taylor and Brooke had other loves and husbands! Some comments on the week's events:
I don't know if Caroline pushing Rick to tell the truth should constitute a betrayal of the Spencer family, but I do know that Bill isn't responsible for Caroline falling over the balcony. I also know it's utterly ridiculous that she even survived such a fall, let alone with only a minor concussion. It was also totally crazy and headache-inducing that Hope showed up at the hospital and started harping at Caroline about her and Liam two minutes after Caroline regained consciousness.
Hope is really coming out with both guns blazing this time around, but it's impossible to get excited about - not only does her version of events not make sense to what really happened, but she is uncomfortable to watch when trying to be a vixen. Her confidence is admirable, but when no one can understand why she'd want him back in the first place, it's pretty much a non-starter. Are you excited about Hope's plan to take back Liam?

Making Bill an overnight alcoholic is beyond silly. We're supposed to believe that Katie's been married to him all this time and just didn't notice, and that the fact that he had a drink before Caroline lost her balance somehow makes him responsible for her fall? What's worse is that they called Taylor for the intervention - probably the very last person he's going to listen to on earth since she just ratted him out to his wife about kissing Brooke! This is probably all playing out so that Brooke will take his side against Katie and they will be drawn together, but holy smokes, couldn't they have taken time to come up with something believable?
