“B&B” Breakdown
Week of July 11 – 15:

“B&B” was much improved for me this week. There was some romance, comedy, and conflict. Let’s take a look at what happened:

Romantic reunion.
Ridge appearing at the top of the fountain and dropping the rose petals into the water to get Brooke’s attention was classic soapy romance. I’m not saying it was worth the ridiculous storyline it took to get there, but it was definitely a ‘moment’.

Keep it coming.
I was loving the strength of both Taylor and Dayzee this week in the aftermath of Stephanie and Thomas’s deception – here’s hoping they stick to their guns!

Facing Brooke.
I enjoyed seeing Thomas and Stephanie each having to face up to Brooke. Thomas’s betrayal was worse because of the bond they shared – she couldn’t even imagine that he would lie about such a thing even when certain people were suggesting it. On the other hand, Brooke didn’t even seem surprised to learn that Stephanie had a hand in it. Brooke is so happy to have Ridge back, and to have received a sincere apology from Stephanie, that she could afford to take the high road when doling out the punishment. I thought it was a very interesting choice to take a comedic route and have Eric and Stephanie doing shots and Stephanie professing her love for Brooke in front of a live audience. What did you think about Stephanie’s penance? Let us know by voting in’s The Bold And The Beautiful Snap Poll: Anything?
