Bill got some just desserts this week, the Wyatt/Liam rivalry heated up, and Ally returned. Thoughts:
Hot off the presses.
While at Liam's house, Hope was pushing for Liam to accept Wyatt as his brother. It boggles the mind that she expects that to happen while she simultaneously has them competing over her. Wyatt showed up with the photos, knowing Hope wouldn't be able to resist them, and ended in a series of goofy challenges to prove he's manlier than Liam, who wound up with a ping-pong ball in the kisser. Cheesy, but funny.
Brooke did this?
It was also good fun seeing Bill, Justin, and Alison staring dumbfounded at the leaves that fell from the fated envelope. It was interesting that Bill ran back over to Brooke's with his tail between his legs rather than roaring as might have been expected. In other news, Katie began to thaw a bit toward Brooke this week. Do you think it's time? Let Soaps.com know by voting in our B&B Poll: Do you think Katie should forgive Brooke now?
Bill and Liam were a riot going back and forth about Bill living in the Malibu house and whose house it actually is. It was surprising that Liam agreed to have Bill intercede on his behalf with Wyatt - seems parental interference is fine when it's in your favor. Of course, Bill was mainly doing it to try and win points with Brooke, which Liam should have realized - he's pretty Bill-savvy by this point.
Thorne's daughter, Ally, returned from law school with dreams of designing a shoe line for Forrester dancing through her head. Speaking of dreams, she'll also happily follow in the footsteps, or lip prints, of her cousin, who's not actually a cousin, Hopie, whose life is currently raining men and accolades. Some viewers were affected by Thorne and Ally's emotional scenes, and others weren't so much, perhaps because Ally is a virtual stranger given that we didn't watch her grow up onscreen. Either way, the flashbacks and memories of Sally and Darla were awesome. With Thorne and Ally agreeing to move into the Forrester mansion by week's end, perhaps we'll be seeing more of Thorne? Here's hoping.
The Liam/Hope/Wyatt triangle is in full swing now that the parents are jumping on board to weigh in and try to manipulate the outcome. Seem familiar? Gah! The trouble is that all of this drama is surrounding Hope and many couldn't care less who she's with, although all dearly wish she'd pick someone and stick with them. Wyatt and Liam's relationships with Hope are boring when it comes down to it. They revolve almost completely around them telling her how special and amazing she is, and stealing kisses. Meanwhile, she leads them both on and slaps them down on a regular basis. If she loves Liam, why not marry him? What is she waiting for? If she feels passion for Wyatt, why not give in to it, like in the steam room? When Liam was enthusiastically telling her how Bill was going to get rid of Wyatt for them, why didn't she admit that she'd been letting Wyatt kiss her at every opportunity - she doesn't want him gone.
Revenge tastes so sweet.
Okay, so Quinn is clearly more of a loose cannon than we ever thought. Stabbing Bill and licking his blood off her fingers? Yike!
