“B&B” Breakdown
Week of September 10 – 14:

It’s been an emotional week on “B&B” as Brooke and Ridge remarried. Here are some thoughts:

Red wine, red meat.
Bill went the caveman route this week as he tried to make Liam a ‘real Spencer’ by force-feeding him rare steak and cigars. Kinda funny, but also kinda dumb – like calling him ‘Liam the Conqueror’. In any case, Liam showed up at Brooke and Ridge’s wedding looking like Bill’s mini-me, but still acted as soppy as ever, mooning over Hope.

Big dreams.
This stuff with Rick trying to manipulate everyone to do his bidding really rubbed some the wrong way this week. It’s hard to watch because he’s not even the least bit clever about it! He’s utterly transparent and totally a turn-off. There’s no way the other characters would listen to him for even a second. The most realistic scene coming out of all this was Caroline warning Hope away from Thomas. She’s genuinely confused and concerned.

Can you move on?
Wasn’t it just a short time ago that Taylor told Ridge how Thorne just doesn’t measure up in her heart or whatever? Now she’s telling Thorne she’s already ‘moved on’ from Ridge, with him, and playing kissy-face. All this while she moons over Ridge-themed photo albums. I’m afraid for Thorne – but it sure was great to see them this week!
