“B&B” Breakdown
Week of January 21 – 25:

Taylor was a presence this week, Katie let Brooke take the reins in her love life, the triangle continued, Dayzee met someone from her past, and it was open season on Eric.

Things are different now.
Are they? Taylor made the rounds on Steffy’s behalf this week, very nearly giving her secret away more than once. Taylor’s position on wanting Hope to respect Steffy’s relationship is realistic, but also pretty ironic, given that mere months ago Brooke was delivering the exact same speech to her when the tables were turned. Just a hint of why we’re so sick of this repetitious storyline. Bringing Taylor and Brooke’s ongoing rivalry into it gives me a headache. Why do they keep attacking and blaming each other? The man is at the center of it all, and keeps it going by flip-flopping and being receptive to advances made by the woman he isn’t in a relationship with at the time. The other woman can only cause problems if he allows it…

We deserve this time.
Every time there was a scene with Liam and Hope canoodling, I had to ask myself what the hell he was doing. He lives with Steffy right now. Both girls should dump him. If he was ready for a real commitment, he would have said a definitive ‘no’ to spending time with Hope despite the ‘lies and deceit’ being revealed, and remained steadfast in his feelings for Steffy. Do you think it’s realistic for Liam and Hope to spend time together while Steffy’s away? Vote in’s B&B Spending Time poll.

I want my baby!
Why is Dayzee’s past as an adoption facilitator such a big secret that she doesn’t even want her husband to know? She was helping these women like Maya, right? It also seems totally out-of-character for Dayzee to want to keep a secret about anything she did – she’s always been an honest, open book. Waiting for the blanks to be filled in on this one…
