“The Bold and the Beautiful” for the week of April 28 – May 2:

A solid week, with the high point being Brooke’s controversial move against her sister in support of her man. Thoughts:

Secrets can be fun.
It’s still unsettling to think of Oliver as some kind of user, so some are taking a ‘wait and see’ approach to this relationship with Ally. The foreshadowing with regard to Taylor was heavy this week, so methinks Oliver might be in for more than he bargained for if his geeky girlfriend turns full-on psycho at the sight of Dr. Hayes.

New energy.
Thorne may have new energy since he started sleeping with Taylor again, but it must also be fogging up his brain since he seems oblivious to the reception this relationship will get from his troubled daughter. In any case, I love this development and hope the pairing will stay around long-term instead of just appearing long enough to send Ally off the deep end.

My brother the genius.
The wind really went out of Wyatt’s sails when he learned Liam had convinced Hope not to have sex with him anymore. Despite his continued bravado and outward confidence, viewers could see and feel that Wyatt was truly sandbagged by the thought of losing Hope, and it was Liam who seemed more concerned with winning the prize. The bottom line is that it would enhance this storyline to have other young people figuring into this equation, as that is how it happens in the real world. Are there no other girls interested in pursuing Wyatt or Liam? Really? The way this triangle happens in a vacuum is annoying, especially in their work environments where there are models and young professionals galore.
