Week of April 22 - 26:
It's been an interesting week - plenty of contrast between the guilt and angst of the Brooke/Katie/Bill stuff, Steffy and Liam's happiness, and the comic relief of Caroline.
A lifelong adventure.
It's certainly been an amazing week for Liam and Steffy, who do for all intents and purposes appear to be madly in love. Here's hoping that this brings an end to the dreaded triangle business for at least a while, as it might actually be nice to see Hope do something other than pine. What a low moment for her to text Liam 'congratulations' while he's on his honeymoon. She clearly didn't mean it! Anyway, here's also hoping Baby Spencer ends up being named Aspen and not Wilhelm. Gah!
Brooke had a parenting 'hall of fame' moment when she asked Hope about getting back with Oliver five seconds after Liam married Steffy. God forbid she be without a man for more than a day or two. Yeesh! Speaking of Oliver, does this guy have low self-esteem issues? Why does he keep going back begging for scraps from Hope when she clearly doesn't feel about him the way one should to be in a serious relationship? What's his deal?
On the subject of begging, we've watched Katie spend all week pleading for forgiveness for ever questioning the loyalty of her hubby and sister, and neither of them flinch or say so much as a word - they just let her go on beating herself up. So hard to take! Even Donna jumped on the bandwagon, blaming Katie for pushing Bill and Brooke together but I'm betting she'll be singing a different tune if she finds out they did the horizontal mambo and Brooke lied to her about it!
Had breakfast yet?
This 'new' Caroline just keeps on being outlandish, in fact she's so fun that she's wasted on dry old President Rick, who has clearly moved on from her - though she was making it 'hard' by serving herself up for breakfast in his office. Hehe. I'd like to see Caroline respect herself enough to give up on Rick since he so clearly just isn't that into her anymore. Why always have women throwing themselves at men who are interested in someone else on this show? Hook Caroline up with a new hottie! What do you think Caroline should do next?

You did it!
Unless you're a staunch supporter of one or the other, it's tough not to sometimes find yourself siding with Brooke and other times with Taylor. In the current storyline, Taylor's unrelenting self-righteousness has definitely been annoying, and yet there's no denying she was right - she saw the writing on the wall where Brooke and Bill were concerned. Her realization today that they did the nasty made for a pretty intense scene. The question is, what will she do with this information now? Dun, dun, dun...
