B&B Breakdown
Week of March 7 – 11:

There were really only two storylines featured this week, and admittedly, I’m not a big fan of either one. Let’s take a look:

Bill’s blunder.
The bit with Amber going over the lookout had me on pins and needles for a few minutes, as did Steffy struggling to pull Amber back to safety. However, the whole idea that a supposedly intelligent man like Bill would plot Amber’s murder as the only means of dealing with the situation is just bizarre. Not only that, but he spends all of his time as he’s planning this, going around telling anyone who will listen that he’s going to ‘handle the situation’. Dumb. It was rather entertaining listening to him go on about Amber’s death being a tragic accident to Steffy, who knew Amber was alive and well. I guess Steffy will use this information to manipulate Bill now. Haven’t we seen her do this before?

Unleashing tension.
It seems Katie has done nothing much but ‘support’ Bill for nearly a year now. I’d like to see this character get a storyline of her own. While we’re at it, can we also have Eric, Thorne, Felicia, Bridget, and the Marone family back in the action?
