"B&B" Breakdown for the week of November 4 - 8:
Bill's near-death experience and the fallout have been the main focal point of the week. Thoughts:
The heist and the hero.
After all was said and done at the boutique, it was kind of irritating to know that Wyatt engineered the diamond's disappearance for publicity, and failed to admit it to Hope, therefore creating yet another misdeed hanging overhead waiting to be revealed, which will no doubt send Hope back in Liam's direction when it comes out. It's like Hope ping-pong. Liam does something bad, then Wyatt does something naughty... It just gets to feel predictable and worn out - the constant back and forth within these "B&B" triangles.
A stick up!
Pam rolling into the boutique after the heist growling, "Nobody move. This is a stick up!" and laughing out loud at herself was so funny. Comic gold! Pam and Charlie will make a fun 'odd couple' if they get together.
Things got messy.
This Maya/Rick/Caroline/Carter mash-up probably should be delicious fun, but the Maya/Carter part of the equation falls flat repeatedly. They have a weird stiff vibe going on in their interactions. It would be better if we loved all the possible outcomes and felt totally torn. As it is, the storyline's just not jacked-up enough. It's obvious the end game is supposed to be Rick and Maya (who clearly wants to go back to more than just modeling), with some entertaining sparring between Caroline and Maya along the way, which is fine, but nothing more.
Who the hell are you?
Well, the intensity of Bill's near-death experience on the mountain, led to him having a so-called epiphany and unceremoniously dumping Brooke to go back to Katie. I for one didn't see any flashbacks go through his mind that had to do with wanting Katie back, but in any case, that's what he claimed. So Brooke got her just desserts for betraying her sister. Katie, for her part, at least had the wherewithal to question Bill's motives and to voice to Brooke what we were all thinking - why would she want a man who comes crawling back to her smelling like Brooke? Yep. However, Katie looked to be wavering by the end of Friday's episode. If the sister-swapping isn't repugnant enough, the idea that Bill may be playing Katie in order to 'take back control' just might be. Do you think Bill is sincere in wanting Katie back? Vote:
