    No more nookie. (CBS)
    "The Bold and the Beautiful" for the week of April 28 - May 2:

    A solid week, with the high point being Brooke's controversial move against her sister in support of her man. Thoughts:

    Secrets can be fun.
    It's still unsettling to think of Oliver as some kind of user, so some are taking a 'wait and see' approach to this relationship with Ally. The foreshadowing with regard to Taylor was heavy this week, so methinks Oliver might be in for more than he bargained for if his geeky girlfriend turns full-on psycho at the sight of Dr. Hayes.

    New energy.
    Thorne may have new energy since he started sleeping with Taylor again, but it must also be fogging up his brain since he seems oblivious to the reception this relationship will get from his troubled daughter. In any case, I love this development and hope the pairing will stay around long-term instead of just appearing long enough to send Ally off the deep end.

    My brother the genius.
    The wind really went out of Wyatt's sails when he learned Liam had convinced Hope not to have sex with him anymore. Despite his continued bravado and outward confidence, viewers could see and feel that Wyatt was truly sandbagged by the thought of losing Hope, and it was Liam who seemed more concerned with winning the prize. The bottom line is that it would enhance this storyline to have other young people figuring into this equation, as that is how it happens in the real world. Are there no other girls interested in pursuing Wyatt or Liam? Really? The way this triangle happens in a vacuum is annoying, especially in their work environments where there are models and young professionals galore.


    Paper payback. (CBS)
    Mind-blowing sex.
    Say what you like about Quinn, but she's definitely keeping things interesting right now. Besides pressuring Bill to exert some influence in his sons' battle over Hope, she is a deliciously loose cannon as far as Bill's relationship with Brooke goes. Who doesn't giggle every time Brooke repeats her new mantra that there's nobody else for Bill but her? Oh, it's only a matter of time...

    Signed papers.
    Well, it felt right somehow for Brooke to bring Katie down a peg or two with those papers. It was controversial given that Brooke put Bill above her sister, but Katie using Will as a means of punishing Bill was not right either. Bill's expression when he realized what Brooke had done for him definitely had impact. The big lug nearly teared up. This is absolutely a compelling storyline as there are so many angles to it.

    Hope's cat.
    The animal shelter storyline absolutely had an important message and there was some good footage and sweet animals, however, the cameos with all those people sounded like they were reading from brochures. It's too bad they couldn't have found a way to convey the message more organically within the story's dialogue so it didn't come across like a series of stilted public service announcements. As for Liam adopting a cat for himself and Hope - a tad presumptuous or another smart move?

    Katie got just what she deserved she was using Will to punish Bill for kicking her to the curb. He can't drink no motorcycle on and on so he left now she is salty lol! Everyone says Brooke is jealous of Katie and Ridge if so why when she walked into Katie's office she didn't give him the time of day walked right past him then he tried to bring up RJ she was like I will deal with you later, the ole Brooke would of gave him her full attention new Brooke kicked him to the curb so hard and fast i bet he will still be bouncing on Monday lol!

    Brooke fights for Bill's son but sends her son away to school. Go figure. Hate the pairing of Brooke and Bill. Katie and Ridge seem strange. Bill needs to tell Brooke about Quinn before it gets ugly. Oh well, they are not a couple I support. Katie needs to let Bill have more time with Will. About the CEO position, let Bill run the company but get something in return. Like LIam and Hope together. If he is in it completely, then I vote for them as a couple. Can't stand Wyatt or Quinn.

    I agree it did feel right somehow that Brooke brought Katie down, I really wish it didn't involve Will but if Katie is going to bring him into the fight anyways... besides Katie should've been bright enough to have made sure Brooke destroyed those papers a long time ago.

    I don't know how long you have been watching this soap but you definitely are not aware of many things for you to have an opinion like that. Brooke knows what Bill did and she has slept with and married everybody in the soap except for Rick. lol. that's all she does is sleep with everybody including her daughters men. She slept with Oliver who was dating Hope in high school and said she thought it was Ridge.

    I agree with you totally. She always wants to be the one everyman wants. Taylor told them along time ago that she has a problem. I blame Katie for not asking for the papers when Brooke told her. A real sister would not have kept those paper knowing how he was able to get her to sign them. I hope Katie will be able to do something because that was fraud.

    I disagree with Hope and Liam getting together Liam had plenty of chances with Hope but he always chose Steffy even left her at the alter and went with Steffy so please I am sick of seeing Liam hire some other people.

    I haven't watched since Liam stole the trailer. I just can't take the stupid triangle anymore and Liam is boring and insipid. I keep saying over and over that, for years, he licked his lips and looked away whenever Hope asked him if he loved and wanted her. It's just human nature - he wants her because (a) Steffi is not around and (b) Wyatt wants Hope now. So...awwww he got her a kitty - that's going to be one lonely kitty - who will bond with it? a housekeeper we never see? Anyway, though I haven't watched, I've been keeping track and I have some comments. It's pretty interesting that Brooke (who thinks she is incomparable sexually,) is now a "prom queen" compared to the OTT Quinn and her whips. Wow - wait til that comes out - the woman who told her sister that she "would never satisfy Ridge" like Brooke did. Cringe. My hope is that the writers have something unexpected and interesting up their sleeves to move on for once and for all with a new and interesting, compeling story line. Steffi is still in the opening credits, so she's gotta show up somewhere sometime. Hey, you recycling writers - maybe Steffi could drug Liam and get pregnant by him....that's been done and since you can't think of anything new, maybe you should use it . One more thing...as far as cringe-worthy moments go, I have been watching soaps since 1977 and I don't think I ever saw a more cringe-worthy downright eeewww moment that Ally barging in on Hope and Liam and yelling "Get off her"" Ohhh eeew.... Finally, I hope that things get interesting enough to watch again.

    OOPS- I meant Hope and WYATT!!! If it had been Lame, I mean Liam, I would be the one yelling "Get off her!
