B&B Breakdown for week of 9/1/08
It was a short week, but there was still quite a bit to talk about. Here’s my take on what happened…
Before I get into anything else, I have to start with Nick. Could he have picked a worse time to tell Bridget about Katie?! I mean, right after they have sex, with the sweat on their foreheads not even dry yet? Good God man, at least wait until you get showered and dressed to blow her world apart. And does he really think she’ll take it better after a lovely, romantic evening with him? He really should have just come to the house and laid it on the line instead of making her feel “alive and protected” first.
I loved Brooke slapping Katie! I know most of you think Brooke is being a hypocrite, and she is. She slept with two of Bridget’s husbands and got pregnant by one of them. She really should have said, “I completely understand. I too am powerless to resist Bridget’s men” and then they could have had a cup of tea (Brooke could have had something stronger) and compared notes. However, I cheered on the rage that went into the slap because I am so tired of Katie’s self-loathing. You know what, Katie? You did it. No one forced you to sleep with your best friend/niece’s man. Even if you were dying, you did it. Stop feeling sorry for yourself!
Now, on to Owen and Donna. I’m not sure how I feel about them. I don’t quite get Owen’s devotion to her. He’s known her for barely two months and he’s already saying things like, “I could have lost you.” It doesn’t sound right coming from him. I get that he wants to have sex with her, but this deep love he keeps professing is just kind of creepy. If I were Donna I would be more annoyed by, or afraid of, his smothering than turned on by it.
