“B&B” Breakdown Week of December 12 – 16:
Careful what you wish for…
It was more of the same between Bill, Katie, Liam and Steffy this week. Candi was so right in her blog last week about Katie. Watching her scenes with Liam, I found myself wondering why she is so dumb. Of course she has the right to be stressed being around Steffy. As Katie said, it’s obvious that Bill and Steffy have chemistry. Yet why does she keep trying to push Liam towards Hope? A single Steffy is not going to make her situation with Bill better. Katie chose to stay with Bill and make their marriage work. Unfortunately for her, getting along with Steffy might now be part of that package.
During Steffy’s plea to Katie, she admitted she has been aggressive and made some mistakes, like so many other people on this show. Maybe it’s possible love can change you. The romantic in me would like to believe Liam has done that for Steffy. It was no surprise that Katie wouldn’t accept it. On the flip side of that, lust is totally clouding Bill’s judgment. He can’t really think a “family” trip to Mexico is a good idea. He wants his cake and to eat it, too. When he told Steffy to pack light and just wear a bikini, I found him to be borderline creepy. Bill is being too inappropriate for a father-in-law.
A weird declaration.
Not only did Jackie admit to knowing about the stolen designs to Eric, she also proclaimed her love. I really do adore Jackie, but found her conversation with Eric to be weird. Jackie is better than being another temporary stopover on the Eric and Stephanie love train. It will be interesting to see where they all go from here, professionally and personally.
A nice moment.
Aside from Hope being so wishy-washy about Liam, the other thing that annoys me is how a person with no educational or professional experience can be elevated to the top of a company. It's a bit insulting that Hope is near CEO level at Forrester, when she never went to college or had much work experience. Therefore, it was a really nice move to have Hope and Stephanie interact with the foster children this week. They were both so awful to Beverly, and it was great to have Hope exposed to how it's not always so easy when everything isn't handed to you. It was great that this heartwarming storyline was featured this week, especially during this time of year. There are so many silly things we get wrapped up in, and it's nice for a soap to take a moment and reflect on a meaningful story. What did you think?
