What happens on the island... (Soaps.com)
Week of May 2 – 6:
Even though this week revolved around a single storyline, many characters were pulled in, and it was quite entertaining, and dramatic, at times. Let’s break it down:
I won’t give up.
There’s no denying the sexual chemistry between Steffy and Bill, but her shameless pursuit of a married man during a crisis in which her brother could be dead, definitely bordered on tasteless. That said, it was an entertaining diversion. As far as them becoming a couple, I’m not sure where I stand. Steffy comes across rather ‘young’ for Bill for the most part – mostly due to acting like a spoiled teen as opposed to the worldly businesswoman she wants to be perceived as.
I can’t take anymore of Hope’s flip-flopping between Liam and Oliver. So over it.
I loved the coming together of the families to support each other as the search for Brooke and Thomas continued. Pam being the one to provide Donna with comfort, Stephanie examining her feelings for Brooke, and mending fences with Stephen – all were moments that remind us why we watch soaps. Nick announcing that Brooke and Thomas were alive caused a celebratory mood that was downright contagious.
What happens on the island, stays on the island.
But what did happen? I think Brooke and Thomas kissed again under the influence of the berries, and will create a mountain out of a molehill by making the same mistake as last time - keeping it a secret. Yawn. This is way too repetitive to even be fun. I hope there's a twist.
I loved the rescue. Ridge and Brooke spotting each other and running/limping toward each other in slow motion was irresistible - you had to indulge in the moment.
The jet ride home.
After the intense drama and imagery of the island hallucinations and rescue, the awkward plane ride home was rather dullsville. It was nice to see Taylor getting real with Brooke and Bill - no telling how long that will last - and I noticed that as relieved as Steffy was to have Thomas safe and sound, she wasted no time being nicey-nice, and went right back to insulting his girlfriend, Dayzee, in short order. Thomas's call to Dayzee was sweet. They don't bowl me over with chemistry, but I do like something about the pairing.
