"B&B" Breakdown for the week of December 2 - 6:
The big stories this week were the wedding, Quinn's dark side showing itself again, and Liam deciding to give Hope an ultimatum. Thoughts:
Crazy in love.
While most viewers got sucked into Caroline and Rick's wildly romantic impromptu wedding (how could you not?), some stopped short of buying into Maya helping the bride get ready. Please. It was also shocking that Caroline got married without either of her mothers present. It all made for an entertaining couple of days' scenes though - Pam and Charlie kissing in the kitchen, Donna's interludes with Eric, which were fraught with delicious sexual tension (though it was odd that Eric didn't bed her - get him to the doctor), but in the end, the talk was all about Quinn's sinister dark side coming out again. This chick is almost as scary as the idea of yet another "B&B" triangle. While some might be concerned for Donna's welfare, I say she can hold her own, and with best friend Pammy backing her up, Quinn might be in for more than she bargained for. Fun! Whose side will you be taking? Vote in Soaps.com's B&B Poll: Donna or Quinn.
Nothing's in your way.
Clearly Hope is having a blast playing the field, so why is her Aunt Katie sternly warning her that she may lose Liam if she doesn't marry him. Why would anyone be pushing marriage on someone Hope's age who obviously isn't ready? It's like in the world of "B&B" everyone has to be married or engaged or at least working hard toward that goal. Gah!
I usually play with men.
You had to laugh at Ally beating Liam's butt in tennis. However, she is a somewhat puzzling addition to the triangle storyline. It's been good fun watching her take aim at Hope's behavior, but she seems too young to even be involved in all this. It's super uncomfortable to imagine her jumping in to make this a quadrangle, even after a make-over. The other issue - why is Ally so sure that Liam deserves better? She is terribly indignant on Liam's behalf considering she really doesn't know him at all. On the other hand, her conversation with Thorne about Hope was funny. "I don't think I like what she's teaching."
