“B&B” Breakdown week of August 19 – 23:

The high drama of the Katie/Brooke confrontation kicked the week off right, but things were more somber by week’s end. Thoughts:

You did this to me!
The way Katie went at Brooke and stood up to her repeatedly and unflinchingly as they argued was so satisfying to watch! Too bad she hadn’t done the same with Bill, whom she let tromp all over her. A fan commented that Brooke and Bill certainly don’t appear to be worried about upsetting Katie or sending her into cardiac arrest now. So true! Anyway, in no universe should Katie have allowed Bill to turn this around on her or put herself in the position to be pleading with him to come back to her. Gah! It seemed like both Brooke and Bill were coming from a place where they needed to find any way they could to blame Katie so that they could justify moving forward together.

Taming the stallion.
I believe Brooke loves her sister, but she might love ‘love’ a little bit more. She can’t seem to say no to being swept off her feet no matter who it hurts. She might as well ride the stallion all she wants now – the damage has been done. The question is how far will she go with this romance knowing that Katie still loves him?

Wyatt’s hunger to have what he feels he’s entitled to was a bit off-putting this week. That, and his rudeness toward his mother. He also wants ‘the woman’ into the bargain. Be careful what you wish for; some might say winding up with giggly Hope would be more punishment than reward for his bad behavior.
