The Bold And The Beautiful Weekly Blog!
Week of September 27 – October 1:
I often find The Bold and the Beautiful to be a mixed bag. That was true this week. There was the powerful Stephanie drama, the inane stuff involving Rick, and some romance between Nick and Aggie. Read on for my thoughts:
I love to see romance in the afternoon, but I can’t quite make up my mind about Nick and Aggie, or more specifically, Aggie. She has a sense of playfulness and sincerity that I like, but when she gets more serious she somehow annoys me. I can’t put my finger on it. Feel free to comment.
Thomas the conqueror.
Wow, I wish I could better understand Thomas’s sudden zeal to reinstate Brooke. Does he just want to get back at Steffy? It’s unclear, so it’s hard not to be taken aback at this suddenly being a constant theme running through every conversation he holds at Forrester. It’s a bit much, but on the other hand, I love how it evens things up, so I’m all for seeing what comes out in the wash!
Since when do men propose to women who are happily married! Again, I’m finding this all to be too out-of-the-blue and over-the-top. It’s plain silly. I need a touch more realism to appreciate and invest in a storyline.
Bridget and Owen.
I don't mind the idea of Bridget and Owen being together, aside from the fact that he's already married, but her constant hints about it are making her seem too needy. There's not much in this Bridget/Owen/Rick/Jackie scenario that's working for me.
What an awesome episode! I actually teared up when she came down the slide with everyone chanting and clapping. So well done! I have relished most of this story so far, knowing that it will be powerful. Also, it's so much fun to watch Stephanie deal with Brooke's hovering - hilarious! The only complaint is that Brooke and Stephanie have veered rather close to that trap we sometimes see on The Bold and the Beautiful where two characters have the same argument/dialogue for days on end. We know Stephanie is protecting her family, and we know Brooke thinks she should 'tell them' - please don't drive us insane making sure we get it! What do you think about Stephanie's decision not to fill in her family? Let us know by voting in Soaps.com's The Bold And The Beautiful Snap Poll: Stephanie's Choice.
