“B&B” Breakdown for the week of August 26 – 30:

There was lots of drama again this week on “B&B,” with the focus remaining on several storylines and a variety of characters. Love this!

Licking their wounds.
It was so disappointing that they made Thomas and Thorne look like Dumb and Dumber. The fashion show still made for some solid viewing, even though the outcome was no surprise thanks to the many teasers that come out ahead of time. Regardless, there were some good moments of tension, and it’s always a kick seeing Pam trying to make things better with her lemon bars.

Dirty little secret.
It was surprising that Rick jumped into bed with Caroline so easily as he hasn’t even seemed turned on by her in recent weeks. Despite Maya’s dirty little secret hurting his pride, Rick should have had a bit more loyalty. Caroline’s self-congratulatory air when Maya arrived the morning after was bang on. One couldn’t help but feel for Maya at first, but by the time she was in Rick’s office doorway pouting and giving those long exaggerated looks she gives, I was pretty much over it. She shouldn’t have kissed creepy Carter in the first place. Caroline and Rick were pretty cute cuddled up on Friday’s episode, but I’m hoping this situation doesn’t deteriorate into weeks of longing looks from Rick and Maya as they half-heartedly romance Caroline and Carter. That would be predictable and boring.
