    And it goes on... (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of January 14 - 18:


    The triangle continued to dominate, however there were other storylines going on as well, which was much-appreciated. Some points on the week:

    Honey, I'm home...
    Whether Steffy had the moment coming to her or not, finding out she was pregnant and rushing home to see Liam entwined with Hope on the bed was awful. It's like he couldn't even wait for her plane to take-off before he was canoodling. Sure he put a stop to it eventually, but not before he had indulged himself. Ugh.

    As the triangle tortures...
    "We were cheated," "We were robbed," "We were deceived..." Pass the Tylenol! Some of the other characters have been making a point of letting us know, through their dialogue, that Hope has matured. Strange, because she's still doing a darn good impression of a self-absorbed, foot-stomping child demanding her own way, and throwing Steffy's clothes around Liam's pad wasn't very grown-up behavior. It's back to being all about her message, her line, and her vision of how it all should be. Hope's so caught up in her me-me-me mania, she hasn't even stopped to consider that Liam's feelings for Steffy, who actually has matured, may have now surpassed what he felt for her. Liam, despite his preposterous declaration to Brooke that he is decisive, is still as wishy-washy as they come...


    Hard line. (CBS)
    Forrester fashion face-off.
    Many were anticipating the Forrester Creations fashion competition, but were disappointed by how abbreviated the whole thing turned out to be. Eric may as well not have bothered - it seemed a forgone conclusion that he'd choose Rick. I'm not sure what Thomas could have done with his designs to change the outcome. I hope they renew the focus on the company and the fashion shows - and even revive a competing fashion house!

    My miracle.
    Eric finally breaking down and mourning Stephanie was something I'd been waiting to see for a while. So heartbreaking! He didn't always appreciate her in life and it was amazing to hear him acknowledge that too instead of sugar-coating. It's probably safe to assume that Eric is ready to move forward now...

    On a vacation.
    Wow! Katie is certainly no shrinking violet. I wouldn't be messing with Dollar Bill's single malt scotch. Anyway, it was no surprise that he went running to Brooke. I expect that Katie taking the hard line with him is the beginning of what will lead to the breakdown of their relationship so that Brooke, who as evidenced by her advice to Katie on Friday, understands Bill so well, will be able to realize her next destiny. What do you think of Katie suddenly taking a hard line with Bill? Let us know by voting in Soaps.com's B&B Katie’s Hard Line poll.

    Liam is not all that come on leave Hope alone she is a baby.
    Hope needs someone else enough is enough we are tried of looking at the same thing with these three. We need action. Stephaine was wrong and the old man too I don't like Rick he should go, him and Caroline too we have had enough of the Logans Enough Enough its someone else turn there its off my chest.

    It would be a change for Mr. Bell to portray a single motherhood story line as it appears quite the norm in today's world!

    I completely agree with your post Candace especially with the being robbed, cheated, and deceived. It is so aggravating. She has not changed one bit. Hopefully Liam will too. I just wish the drama will finish and finally move on to better story lines. I think Steffy has matured and in a good place. She needs to have her baby and be happy with or without the father. It is wonderful if you can have the father of your child be with you, but if not a woman can do a wonderful job by them-self. She can do better without Liam and his indecisiveness.

    I agree Liam needs to leave Hope alone and stay in his committed relationship with Steffy. You cant change what happened, so move on. The fact still remains that Liam told her nothing happened at the club that night with Steffy, and she believed everyone else except Liam! So Im gonna say, Hope get yo life, because Liam is not available! So sick of this love triangle! Just let Liam and Steffy be, and get ready to raise their child thats coming......ughhh so tired of the Logans always winning, its getting boring.

    I have been loving how this s/l is developing.
    To me Liam and Hope have been the greatest love story on daytime tv.
    They have all the charisma & chemistry.
    I would love to see them back together and more in love than ever.
    They have gone through tough times together before and come out loving each other more & more.
    They are "soulmates".

    Well Candace thank you for giving us this opportunity to be able to agree totally that there has been no change at all in Hope's behave everything you said about her is true she is a self absorbed foot sromping child demanding to get her own way and still has her me me me personality added to it now a voliatile temper, she has grown up at all in fact she is getting worse and Clarence in his update today was right Hope has gone mental.

    Liam and Hope are the biggest disaster in daytime history and also on television ever they are just boring not only is watching paint dry and watching grass grow is more exciting than these. Hope's character could make any man looking boring with her foot stomping childish and irractic behaviour

    Posted by mg1729 at Friday, January 18 2013 10:48 PM

    Liam is very in decisive it's just ridiculous when he is with Hope he is just like a high school boy who has a crush on his high school girl friend.

    When Liam is with Steffy he is like a man in love who knows what he wants for his future. Liam and Steffy are the ones that have the passion romance and happiness together that any couple could dream about they have the perfect love story except Hope stomping up and down saying me me me me all the time

    Liam should be kissing his dad Bill's feet that he is not married to the foot stomping immature child
