"The Bold and the Beautiful" for the Week of May 5 - 9:
It was a very busy week for "B&B," with clashes and tears galore. Thoughts:
It had to be done.
One of the best things about the Brooke/Bill/Katie/Ridge quadrangle is how emotionally-charged it can be, and also how the constant push and pull can keep viewers changing their perspective. It's rarely been dull. The love-in between Brooke and Bill after she gave him his company back was touching, yet later in the week, the angst of her conversation with Ridge was moving also. Viewers could find themselves cheering Brooke on one minute, and rooting for Katie the next. Ridge is truly the wild card in all of this, as he's been rather flighty - not around much - and then impulsively shows up and proposes, leaving room for doubt about his timing and true motives. Good stuff.
Weirdly vital interesting woman.
Quinn cheerfully blackmailing the behind off Bill was almost as fun to watch as her run-in with Liam. The clashes between these two are just becoming epic. Forget petting Hope's cat, sparring with Quinn energizes the deadly dull Liam and brings him to life. They totally need to throw down and have a hate sex session on his desk one of these times. The fallout would be absolutely brilliant. So bad but so fun!
It wasn't clear exactly how Quinn thinks it's going to help Wyatt to have Bill's name, though it's a nice enough gesture. It's also odd that she thinks Wyatt having Bill's support in the bid to win Hope is going to make any difference whatsoever. Bill lost his credibility as a parental meddler back in the Steffy days.
