To be fair IMO, a bad storyline, usually ends in poor results.
Here we have a Doctor trained in handling problems for others, but she goes and tries to Kill Bill as a way of Solving her dilemma ...WHAT? When Steffy and Bill were in a relationship before, Taylor used her Brain...not a Gun, to solve the problem. But this time she goes straight to the Gun to use to solve her problem, this is a trash storyline from Bell.
Bell wanted what we saw on our TV from the Actress, just as much as he wanted this Trashy Stupid Storyline. He made her look unhinged breaking down in front of us. No one had a gun to her head or a knife to her throat, so WHY would she confess and no evidence against her...this is just too stupid for even a soap opera show. He threw Taylor under the bus. The man has no imagination at all. Now we are going to see Steffy going to Bill and asking him Not to turn her mother into the Police. Bill will do what Steffy asked.
