“The Bold and the Beautiful” for the week of April 14 – 18:

It was another solid week of “B&B,” as the Katie and Brooke feud heated up. Though Katie came out swinging, it looks as though Brooke is ready to hit back. Thoughts:

Place of business.
There were some pretty entertaining scenes with Katie and Eric, and then with Katie and Brooke after Katie confronted Eric about his efforts to push Ridge and Brooke together at work. Snippy confrontational Katie can be a little annoying, but a lot of fun, as she has a great deal of conviction once she forms an opinion. She’s good at dishing out straight talk to Brooke – there’s been a void left by Stephanie and Taylor in that department. On the opposite side of the coin is Eric, whose convictions seem to change weekly. Recently his party line is that Ridge and Brooke are the future of the company. Why wasn’t he concerned about this when Ridge was in Europe, and how on earth does he envision the company running smoothly with Ridge as CEO and Rick as president when they can’t agree on anything? Yeeps.

Out of options.
Liam kidnapping Hope to take her back to Malibu for another round of ‘we should be married by now’ had many reaching for the aspirin or the fast-forward button. If she’d been knocked up with Wyatt’s baby at least this triangle business would have been over for the time being. Or would it?

Wyatt’s lament.
Who didn’t laugh when Wyatt complained to Quinn that Liam had taken his truck, his trailer, and his girlfriend? Sounded like a country song in the making! Speaking of which, some viewers have a hankering to see plain vanilla Liam buck up and go for a round of hot hate sex with quick-tempered Quinn. Now that would be a total hoot…not to mention loaded with potentially embarrassing and hilarious complications after the fact. Would you like to see this happen?
