The Bold And The Beautiful Weekly Blog!
Nancy Drew. (Soaps.com)
Week of January 31 – February 4:
On the whole, I have to say The Bold and the Beautiful was a bit on the boring side this week – or maybe I’m just not that into the current storylines. Let’s take a closer look:
I must admit to feeling conflicted about the Logan and Forrester family feud coming to an end. I loved seeing Stephanie give Pam her blessing and mending fences with Stephen, but will miss them being at each other’s throats. That said, with Donna accusing Pam of serving poison lemon bars at her wedding reception, there should still be plenty of sniping to look forward to, and the truce probably won’t last long anyway. Do you think the truce will last? Let us know by voting in Soaps.com’s The Bold And The Beautiful Snap Poll: The Forrester Logan Truce.
Amber drops her bomb.
I just can’t get excited about this rather predictable storyline, and I remain bewildered as to why Amber and Tawny are mixing it up with teenagers. In any case, Hope’s ‘Nancy Drew’ routine got on my nerves so much this week, that I’ve decided that I’ll take some satisfaction in watching Amber prevail – for the time being. I can’t imagine where this storyline will take Amber down the road.
I loved the honey references this week – especially when Eric pulled out the honey bottle to joke with Stephanie – good stuff!
Here comes the bride.
Sudden bride Donna was positively glowing, but I didn't feel an ounce of emotion during this wedding ceremony - there was no time to invest in this romance, thus no payoff. It was like watching two strangers! Justin's cousin Olivia coming to town wound up being a bit of a non-event too. Here's hoping Stephen's wedding to Pam will be a real hoot!
What's in a name?
I thought it was kind of funny that after Justin made this big heartfelt speech to Marcus about taking his last name, Marcus just said that he'd think about it. I was expecting him to agree right away because I was caught up in the moment.
I'm not quite as excited about this quitting smoking storyline now that it's beginning to feel like a long drawn-out public service announcement. Jackie twittering and fretting isn't all that entertaining, and Nick's starting to sound like a broken record; 'the occasional cigar, yada, yada...' I'm hoping this plot will pick up when we start hearing from the real-life cancer survivors next week. Stephanie's interviews with the homeless were so interesting, and this should be too.
Meet me in the steam room.
So, is Thomas actually interested in Summer, or using her to fool Brooke into thinking he's really not that into her? Something tells me he deliberately left that note for Brooke to find. Either way, I still just wish this nonsense would end.
