Week of June 17 - 21:
In the wake of the pregnancy shockers, things seemed a little quieter by comparison this week on "B&B." Thoughts:
It seemed that Rick locking Bill up in a cell and having a sparring match with him would be entertaining, but alas, it didn't amount to much and Rick let him go without really accomplishing much of anything. Meh.
Superficial and rude.
Wow! Those Maya and Caroline face-offs are soapy goodness. They each give as good as they get - it's amazing! As for Caroline setting-up Maya yet again, it's getting a bit ridiculous for her to continue to scheme over Rick who has made it clear he's no longer interested. Why not have her get his attention back by moving on with someone else? The idea that Maya could fall for that creepy Carter while acting isn't appealing or very probable given her level of interest in Rick. Rick getting jealous is definitely possible though...
What was up with Katie spilling Steffy's secret to Brooke of all people? That was actually awful. Brooke has no place knowing before Liam and it was a surprising move by Katie who's usually pretty by the book. It was interesting, though, how it led to Katie calling Brooke out on her double-standard on the subject of meddling in the kids' lives. It's okay for her to push Hope and Liam together, but not for Taylor to find out the truth and push for a Liam and Steffy reconciliation... Anyway, it looked like Katie and Brooke might be headed for some tension, and who knows where that may lead?
Who knows if it was just inexperience, but Hope certainly didn't understand the enormity of what Liam was going through with her attempts to reunite with him so quickly. Also, she really did buy into her own spin that Liam was only with Steffy because she was pregnant, and reality came back to bite her this week. At least she acknowledged that she was trying to force 'happily ever after'. It was interesting that the trip to Big Bear, which began with a dazed Liam wondering if a priest would pop out (hilarious!), ended with Hope nearly chastising him about how they shouldn't be together there 'that way' if he wasn't ready - as though it was his idea!
Okay, what was that scenario in the woods all about? From taking the photo, to running away giggling like a school girl as though she'd never seen a guy's naked body before, it was silly even for Hope. Of course this particular annoying gigglefest ended abruptly when Hope got knocked unconscious...what a way to end the week! Are you excited about the possibility of Hope and Nature Boy hooking up?
