The excitement level dropped down a notch or two this week on "B&B." Thoughts:
In the mix.
Thorne made amends with Eric this week. While he had to say something after that display of pomposity during Rick's fashion show, it's all so unappealing. It was disappointing for Thorne to be portrayed as one part of 'Dumb and Dumber' with Thomas in the first place; basically they were set-up to be humiliated. Now, once again, Thorne's resigned to kissing butt at Forrester while playing second fiddle to yet another brother. Many viewers feel Thorne is long overdue to come into his own as a main player at the family business, complete with a romance and a big storyline.
A new appreciation.
How could you not laugh when Rick told Liam he had a new appreciation for what he went through with Steffy and Hope, and the scene ended with Liam learning that Wyatt and Hope had made a deal to work together? Liam is definitely getting a 'new appreciation' for what he put the girls through - about time!
It's a kick seeing Wyatt get the best of Liam. Hope obviously isn't ready to give up Wyatt's flattering attentions, and few feel sorry for Liam as this is like karma biting him back. Wyatt is at his best when he's being flirty with Hope. She's still too giggly and girlish - it's all so 'puppy love' with her - but Wyatt makes her bearable. As for Hope's obsession with making Wyatt and Liam act like brothers, Miss Bossy Boots should let them decide on their own.
Brooke visited Wyatt and continued to promote her and Bill's version of the events that led to them 'shacking up'. Blaming Katie is still too twisted a concept for most, but Wyatt clearly craves a relationship with his father, so he seemed to be willing to buy it. As for Wyatt's interest in Hope, if Brooke is so invested in Hope marrying Liam, why didn't she warn Wyatt away from her daughter? Anyway, Brooke's visit ultimately led to a Bill/Wyatt reunion, which was definitely a 'feel good' moment.
Quinn and Katie.
These two bonding is all good as long as it doesn't lead to regular meetings of the 'Bitter Exes Club'. Much more preferable would be them being empowered, confident, and supportive of one another.
What's she up to?
That was the question on everyone's mind after Caroline surprised a half-naked Uncle Bill in the bedroom to pledge her support (kinda' creepy), and later paid Katie a visit at Spencer to do the same thing. Hmm.
It was satisfying to hear Katie tell Brooke and Bill how it's going to be. It was a tad poignant watching Bill say goodbye to Will, but there has to be some repercussions.
There are no words for how creepy and pushy Carter is with his Maya obsession. He knows she's still got a thing for Rick and she's rebuffed him in the past, yet he's gone straight to a marriage proposal? Run, Maya, run! What do you think Maya should do? Vote:
