Cabin fever. (CBS)
Bush baby. (CBS)
Week of October 1 - 5:
It was a pretty interesting week on "The Bold and the Beautiful," what with Donna finding out way more than she wanted to know about a couple of different things, and Ridge causing drama at the company. Some points:
That ripe, delicious one.
Through all of the innuendo and sexy stolen moments leading up to Liam and Steffy's reunion in the cabin, I couldn't help but think how much better the dreaded triangle might have been if Hope and Liam had anything near as much chemistry as Steffy and Liam. Obviously some prefer Hope's more wholesome approach to romance, and that's fine, but couples need to generate heat at some point or they might as well be brother and sister.
Donna's approach to discovering what Bill had done in Italy was kind of childish. Why run off to tattle? As an adult, it might have been more fitting to give Bill the opportunity to come clean with Liam and Hope himself. If he refused, then she could decide whether or not to let them know. As it was, she probably wished she'd never got involved after she looked through that cabin window!
Let sleeping dogs lie.
Well, Othello sure proved to be all bark and no bite. He had Hope right there in the office, let her leave none the wiser, and then apparently left like a dog with his tail between his legs following his confrontation with Rick. Meh.
Wow, that mention of Bob Hope having spent time in the cabin put Liam right over the edge! But seriously, I'm hoping that Steffy and Liam will stick for a while so that the triangle can be given a much needed rest.
Katie stayed with Bill after he plotted to murder Amber and what he believed to be his own unborn grandchild, so from where I'm sitting she has no room to complain about anything else he does. If she's had enough, she should leave. Otherwise, stop moaning about what kind of man he is, which is old news and never going to change.
By my side.
Boo on Caroline for buying into Rick's rhetoric. I wanted her to be so much more savvy than that.
It's a bit bizarre to believe that Ridge would elect not to return from his honeymoon, given that he gave no indication of doing anything out of the ordinary before he left, but it is what it is. As far as him appointing Thomas as interim CEO, it's a bit silly considering he's only ever designed. This probably should have been a board decision anyway, but Ridge wouldn't have wanted Rick or Thorne to end up running the company, so he's done it this way. As for Thomas putting Rick through the window and into the bushes below - it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I had to giggle, even though Thomas was acting somewhat obnoxious beforehand. What did you think about Ridge choosing Thomas to run the company? Let us know by voting in Soaps.com's B&B Ridge’s Choice poll.
