    Epic! (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of July 1 - 5:

    Big drama to start the week and something intriguing to end it. Nice! Thoughts:

    Chow time.
    Caroline has had moments lately where she's been just too over-the-top. It's not good because she loses her humanity and seems ridiculous. Keep her real, but quirky and mischievous! It was also a bit much that she was telling Rafael how to write his own web series, but you've got to suspend disbelief sometimes. As for Maya and Carter, they had more chemistry while 'acting' than they do otherwise. Saucy!

    The lowest low.
    Epic drama on the Brooke/Bill reveal! Who didn't relish every minute of the soapy histrionics? Many complained about Taylor's motives and lack of professionalism, but where would we have been this week without her determination and questionable ethics? There's absolutely nothing like one rival getting and dishing the goods on another on a soap. In any case, this is what "B&B" excels at - the big drama, and boy did this situation deliver. Taylor with her smug confidence, Brooke with her silent crying, Bill with his grim bluster, and Katie with her scathing recriminations and tremors of emotion. Brilliant! For a time, we were all on the edge of our seats waiting to see which way Katie was going to go on forgiveness...riveting stuff.

    Rick's rally.
    The exchange between Rick and Hope about Brooke was priceless. "We don't have all the information yet," he cautioned. Hope retorts, "Like what? She forgot Katie was her sister?" Given Rick's recent run-in with Bill, it was surprising he didn't have more to say on the matter.

    Over-reacting? (CBS)
    A criminal act.
    The future's not looking so rosy for lovebirds Taylor and Eric now that he's disgusted with her actions. Yike.

    No further contact.
    It's no surprise that Liam can't understand Steffy's actions. If we didn't know the actress was on a break, we wouldn't get it either as it's not like the character not to face things head on.

    Crazy romantico.
    Okay, so Hope's upset that Liam called Steffy, yet she's been letting this Wyatt dude kiss her repeatedly. Granted, he's super-cute, but still... Anyway, let's get to the nitty gritty. The last time Wyatt bent over to kiss her, it was revealed that he was sporting a sword necklace. The Spencer sword? Intriguing...

    Rick had the reaction that Caroline anticipated when he saw Maya making out with Carter onscreen. Do you think Rick was over-reacting? Vote:

    Heather Tom was brilliant this week.

    Bill was pathetic trying to blame Katie. Yes, she gave her ring back but she's done that before. If he's tired of her, get a divorce, but you're still married until those papers arrive. Brooke should know that, she's running out of fingers to count the number of times she's been divorced.

    The Caroline scenes make me fast-forward; she has become a caricature and it's not even funny, just annoying and stupid.

    Rick is acting like a baby. Grow up. Maybe he does belong with Caroline.

    Taylor has proven herself to be almost as morally corrupt as Bill Spencer. He eavesdropped on Hope's therapy and Taylor looked through another doctor's files. Both illegal, but Taylor is the one who should know better. I am tired of Taylor acting all high and mighty. She gave not one thought to the physical health of a woman with a donor heart who has a history of heart attacks when she gets bad news. I hope Eric kicks her to the curb.

    Hope has every right to kiss another guy. Liam has made not one promise to her. He's still married so he's not even available, and he hasn't made one move to find Steffy, to get divorced, to figure out what happened or to get over her. Hope must be seriously tired of waiting for him and now that she has some distraction, she is taking it. Liam was allowing Steffy to kiss him when he was about to walk down the aisle with Hope, so this is nothing. I hope she moves on and gives Mr. Indecision a dose of his own medicine.

    I hope Wyatt turns out to be Bill's half-brother! How would the big, bad man deal with that?

    Eric is disgusted by what Taylor did and may possibly end things but "will always support Brooke"....smh

    While I think Rick had valid point about it being hard watching Maya with Carter because he was a friend...what did he think was going to happen when Maya got this web series? She and Carter would be taped sitting around shooting the breeze?

    And PLEASE, let this be the end of Taylor and Eric, I thought Hunter Tylo was leaving anyways.

    Ditto dramaqueen. Agree with everything you wrote. Except for one thing. I think Wyatt is going to end-up being another "son". Could be wrong but that's how it looks to me. That would be a twist. Hope being between two brothers. I hope she does end-up with Wyatt. Liam has strung her along for too long. And his character was loving one more but marrying the other because she got pregnant. Who wants anyone whose heart is "divided"? Now he thinks he has the right to get angry???? Really. And I have been one of the biggest LIAM/HOPE fans but enough is enough. Hope deserves some who wants ONLY HER! I ALSO fast forward through Caroline scenes. Can't tolerate ridiculous scenes and immature behavior. Wonder how actors feel playing such ridiculous scenes??? As for Taylor, that was a waste of degrees and education. As for Katie... now it begins. She was great. Now let's see how big sister Brooke tries to manipulate herself out of this one. Who can do this to her own sister??? Except for a snake.
