Awkward. (CBS)

“B&B” Breakdown for the week of September 23 – 27:

The show seemed to get a little bogged down in the stuff surrounding Hope and Brooke this week. Thoughts:

Quinn’s plan.
Honestly, for someone who wanted nothing to do with the Spencers and Forresters and their money or lifestyle, Quinn sure is an eager participant now! Her sudden penchant for scheming, not to mention dropping in on people uninvited cast her in a more negative light. She seemed to have more integrity when she wasn’t acting so dazzled by the wealthy people and so determined to stay a part of it at any cost. Has your view of Quinn changed? Vote:

Whirlwind Wyatt.
We get that he’s into Hope, and some of his flirtatious talk and one-liners are adorable, but the negative is that it’s so constant. It’s a recurring problem that this show tends to beat viewers over the head with things until they are utterly annoying. Every single conversation Wyatt has now, has to include a stab at Liam or a plug for his and Hope’s relationship. Pass the aspirin please. For insight from Wyatt’s portrayer, read Soaps.com’s Darin Brooks interview.

Liam’s desperation.
While it’s nice to see Liam squirming and getting a taste of his own medicine, it might have been even more entertaining to see him be supremely confident about his relationship with Hope and be blind-sided by her interest in another guy. His whining is making him really unappealing!
