The Bold And The Beautiful Weekly Blog
It was fantastic the way Thorne shook things up by bringing Taylor as his date to dinner. Other surprises included Brooke holding civil conversations with both Thomas and Taylor about Hope and 'the situation', and Eric's impromptu up-against-the-wall make out session with Stephanie. What may have been most surprising is that she didn't belt him after! Anyway, it made for a diversion from the Hope sulkfest. Yes, she has a right to feel bad - that doesn't mean viewers want to be exposed to it constantly. As for Ridge's holiday plan - to have Hope toast Liam and Steffy's marriage - I couldn't do anything but laugh at the absurdity of it all. Would you give thanks for a beefed-up storyline for Rick? Thorne? Nick? Let us know who you'd like to see featured in a hot love affair next by voting in Soaps.com's The Bold And The Beautiful Snap Poll: Hot Love.

Week of November 21 – 25:
It’s a short holiday week at “The Bold and the Beautiful,” so just a few notes on the storylines. Here we go!
After another few episodes, it really still feels like the storyline with Stephen dumping Pam, Pam blaming Stephanie, and Nick pimping himself out to Pam is quite contrived. Perhaps the biggest issue is that the whole premise of Nick and Jackie doing whatever it takes to steal designs doesn’t jibe with past history. It wasn’t so long ago that they went ballistic on Amber for doing just that – so it totally doesn’t make sense now. On a positive note, I loved the nods to Sally this week. Miss her!
The endless triangle.
There’s really not much more to say about the Liam/Steffy/Hope triangle. It’s all gotten to be a real headache having to rehash it every day. Worse, the annual Thanksgiving gathering totally revolved around it. Can we all just move on? If this week proved one thing, it’s that Liam and Steffy are very hot together – that pre-Thanksgiving dinner hook-up was so passionate! Unfortunately, it looks like the storyline is going to be ‘Hope works to get back her man’ judging by the looks being exchanged across the table at Thanksgiving. Exhausting.
