"B&B" Breakdown for the week of September 23 - 27:

The show seemed to get a little bogged down in the stuff surrounding Hope and Brooke this week. Thoughts:

Quinn's plan.
Honestly, for someone who wanted nothing to do with the Spencers and Forresters and their money or lifestyle, Quinn sure is an eager participant now! Her sudden penchant for scheming, not to mention dropping in on people uninvited cast her in a more negative light. She seemed to have more integrity when she wasn't acting so dazzled by the wealthy people and so determined to stay a part of it at any cost. Has your view of Quinn changed? Vote:

Whirlwind Wyatt.
We get that he's into Hope, and some of his flirtatious talk and one-liners are adorable, but the negative is that it's so constant. It's a recurring problem that this show tends to beat viewers over the head with things until they are utterly annoying. Every single conversation Wyatt has now, has to include a stab at Liam or a plug for his and Hope's relationship. Pass the aspirin please. For insight from Wyatt's portrayer, read Soaps.com's Darin Brooks interview.

Liam's desperation.
While it's nice to see Liam squirming and getting a taste of his own medicine, it might have been even more entertaining to see him be supremely confident about his relationship with Hope and be blind-sided by her interest in another guy. His whining is making him really unappealing!

Romancing the stone.
Perfect storyline for Hope - a magical diamond with special powers that leads you to your destiny. Too funny that Ricardo used that dreaded word.

Surprise.
Such an icky situation with Katie showing up at Brooke's house right after she and Bill have just done the deed. I don't know what was more awkward - that Katie stuck around to talk about it, or that Brooke acted like Katie had some kind of problem because she hadn't accepted this by now. Ack!

Soon the whole world will know.
I'm sure the whole world already knows thanks to the tabloids. Anyway, Bill proposed to Brooke before he's even divorced from her sister. Jeeze, what is with the marriage obsession on this show? I'm thinking there's not a chance that Brooke will say no, and won't be able to resist sharing her exciting news with someone, like Donna, who was so sure Brooke wouldn't commit to Bill. Hmm...
