    So much pressure. (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of February 18 - 22:


    It was mostly a triangle-oriented week, which peaked with Liam learning of Steffy's pregnancy. Eric mooned over Taylor, and Rick had to deal with a changed Caroline. Thoughts on the week:

    Ambush.
    If Brooke was so keen on Liam being free of manipulations to make his decision - and so sure he'd choose Hope - why did she feel the immediate need to manipulate him into a re-enactment of the ceremony in Italy? I guess when she manipulates it's a sweet and thoughtful surprise. Too funny! Between Father Fontana spouting his rhetoric and Brooke urging Liam to put the ring on Hope's finger it got pretty intense - I thought Liam's head was going to explode!

    I'm pregnant.
    This week's events with the triangle got me to thinking that essentially Hope and Steffy switched tactics throughout the course of things - Hope gave up on doing everything by the book, and Steffy started doing everything by the book. It didn't make much difference because Liam still didn't seem to know, or be able to declare, what or who he really wanted. Now that Steffy has revealed the pregnancy, here's hoping he still chooses the person he had already decided on, despite the speeches from both sides - otherwise the questioning of his motives will be ongoing and headache-inducing.


    Diva? (CBS)
    Sushi on the shore.
    Something's 'fishy' about Caroline's suddenly diva-like behavior at Dayzee's. Is this the same angelic goody two-shoes who arrived in town and was admired for having established her own cancer foundation? Sure people change, but it's extremely tough to buy someone having a personality transplant with no explanation. Dumb. As for Rick, it's not so bad that he had to deal with Caroline's whining - gave him a taste of what he's been dishing Eric's way. In any case, the minute Caroline left the cafe, Rick randomly fell for Maya because she sang a song. Yep, he got that same starry-eyed look that Thomas gets when he's about to start obsessing over someone new. Gah. What do you think about a possible Rick/Maya pairing?

    Hope is a little brat who thinks she should get everything she wants and when she doesnt she cries like a baby.as far as them being kept apart by secrets that clearly doesnt play a role on them not being togethet. They still tgot.married in italy and then hope ropped uhopep the papers and when they were going to get Levelsmarried again hope broke that off too. She had her cjances . She is doing everything she used to hate steffy for. Hope is the homewrecker and needs to stay out of other peoples buisness and as for brooke her and hope just tried forcing liam to marry just like what steffy did in aspen why do hope and brooke think its so wrong when steffy does ot (and it was? But when they do it its perfectly moral? No...logans need to get knocled down a couple levels

    Brooke needs to stop manipulating (and shut up) - she just caused more pain for her daughter who can now cry endlessly about the man she “pledged her life to” but who left her at the altar. Ugh.

    Rick needs to stop whining and stop falling in love, he's a grown man

    Taylor needs to knock that boulder off her shoulder (and by the way, Steffy has never done anything to manipulate Liam -- really?)

    Caroline has turned into a raging brat

    Hope needs to stop giggling (and by the way how perfect that she just so happened to be wearing a long, white dress on the day her mother tried to marry her off -classic)

    Eric should tell his son before he signs him up for something

    How come Rick is a Logan? Besides Thorne, he’s the only biological Forrester male, and yet even HE calls himself a Logan

    Love how Steffy refused to manipulate Liam’s decision for weeks, and then when she did, claims that is not doing what she is doing. “I didn’t want the baby to be the reason Liam chose me, but I have to stop him from choosing Hope by telling him about the baby.” Please.

    I do think Liam should be with the mother of his child and they do love each other, but Steffy could have saved everyone a lot of pain by telling Liam the truth before she “let him” spend all that time with Hope. Running away to France is not her style, it's Hope's. Did she really think Liam, who is the King of the Wafflers, would just “get Hope out of his system”? Hopefully Steffy now has her boy-man, but now she will have to watch her back as long as she has him.

    Steffy please stop scratching at your stomach

    How come Amber is still in the opening credits? I get why Ridge and Stephanie are there, but Amber hasn’t been seen in forever.

    Strike 3 for Brooke's third planned wedding for her immature daughter. Hope and Brooke its time for you both to leave and take the good priest with you.
    Liam if you are smart you will take Steffie and whisk her off on the private jet to destination unknown by everyone and get married.
    I can't wait to see what happens next with Taylor and Eric. They make such a great couple.

    They need to bring Amber back, she made Ric human and likeable.

    Do Not Buy a Rick and Maya pairing. Rick has always been a womanizer of a certain type and that type isn't Maya.

    Bye Bye Miss goody two shoes Caroline, HELLO Maya. A welcome breath of fresh air. The main trouble with this show is every story line is about two people fighting over one person. Isn't there any other romantic storylines out there? I think so. I have watched soaps for 40 years and have seen a lot of relevant things going on but not on this show. As far as the LIAM (boring and juvenile) storyline, Liam "LOVES THE ONE HE'S WITH" SO girlies, if your lucky enough to catch him alone, he will love you. Hey, is this guy just loving sex this much or what? He acts so sincere about everything but never has been able to stand up and say "this is what I want". Oh I get it, that is called drama. Couldn't one of these girls find some other guy and have a really steamy relationship that would just drive Liam wild? just asking. This show is so junior high. Even the Taylor/Eric storyline seems so stupid. He only gets excited about her when she is on some kind of a rant about the Logans. Maybe that's it, he wants to see Taylor, Steffy and Thomas in a mud wrestling match with Brooke, Hope and Rick. Hey lets throw Bill in the mix. He could lick the mud off of Brooke while Katie pretends everything is beautiful.

    If it was meant for Hope and Liam to be married they would be right now. This last thing with her moving out and running home to momma, should have been the last straw. Liam and Hope had plenty plenty chances to be together regardless of who manipulated what. At the end of the day Liam didn't fight long nor hard enough for Hope.
