Week of May 9 – 13:
Well, I’m back to really only being interested in Bill’s storyline. The jet crash crisis was a nice bit of drama, but it seems we’re back to the extremely repetitive and slow-moving stuff involving recycled storylines. Taylor wanting Ridge, Brooke struggling with a secret, Hope sending mixed signals, and Tawny harping at Amber – nothing new or intriguing. Here’s how it breaks down:
I have to be with him.
Taylor has hit an all-time high annoying factor with this latest Ridge-obsession. I don’t know who deserves a slap more, Taylor, or her sidelined hubby, Whip, who made himself look like a turd this week by approaching Ridge and putting his insecurities on full display. Taylor, once everyone’s best hope for a strong female character, needs to stop being so pathetic – she has more unresolved personal issues than any practicing psychiatrist should be allowed, and Whip needs to stop allowing himself to be second-best. Dump her! Have an affair! Do something, man!
Hard to forget.
What happened, or didn’t happen, on the island may be difficult for Brooke to forget, but is it any wonder what with her rehashing it with Thomas every five minutes! This whole scenario, with Brooke and Thomas arguing over whether or not to keep a secret was just done with the plane kiss, and honestly, it was unappealing the first time, so why do we want to sit through a second round of it? Just tell Ridge already, Brooke. If nothing else it will make him stop saying, “You’re safe now, Logan.”
I found it hilarious that Thomas brought back a mash of berries from the island home in his jeans pocket. You have to wonder who is going to be weird enough to find that mess and taste it – because you know someone will!
He's slipping away.
Tawny, get a life! I don't know how Amber can take the sound of her voice any more at this point. Naggy McNagster! It's enough to make you feel sorry for Amber and want Liam to fall in love with her - almost. The problem is, I don't even believe Amber is really in love with Liam. I think she's just convinced herself of the fact. Knowing that it's all going to blow up eventually makes it hard to invest in them as a couple, as does the fact that she's knowingly scamming him, but I liked Friday's developments which make everything more complicated. I also love that Carl turned up - he's funny without even trying.
Nothing's changed - I'm totally over Hope's mixed signals and ridiculousness, and wish Oliver and Liam were over it too. At this point I dread Hope's repetitive and inane scenes.
I want you back.
While I'm slightly disturbed by Katie's total change of heart about Bill's murderous tendencies, the triangle shaping up is full of delicious possibilities. Bill oozes chemistry with both Katie and Steffy, so it's win/win for viewers no matter which woman he ends up with. Which woman are you rooting for?
