Feisty Brooke. (CBS)
“The Bold and the Beautiful” for the Week of February 2 – 6:
There were a great variety of characters and stories on this week. Loved it. Thoughts:
Honey, I’m home!
You’ve gotta’ love Bill when he’s in a good mood and getting his way. He’s like the cat that swallowed the canary. Katie accepted his marriage proposal and finally got some proper bling for her ring finger. Watching Bill kiss her made me weak in the knees. Gah!
Brooke was a riot this week trying everything she could to get Caroline away from Ridge and back with Rick. “Rick tell Caroline you forgive her and you want her back.” Hehe. When that whole scenario didn’t pan out she resorted to using some sort of Jedi mind trick on Caroline, repeatedly snapping her fingers and saying she could have Ridge back ‘just like that, like that, like that…’ Hilarious! Caroline resisted that approach, so the next step was to slip seductively into Ridge’s office and invite him to dinner – using RJ as insurance so he couldn’t refuse of course.
How nice of Brooke to bestow Katie’s own fiance on her. Haha! “Bill is yours.”
It was great to have Steffy back at the house in Malibu – she positively brings Liam to life. Her presence also made Ivy just a little jittery, and why not? Steffy is gorgeous and has a lot of history with Liam. Steffy’s trip over to Forrester was disappointing, however. Her attacks on Caroline and Ridge were way over the top and hugely hypocritical considering she wanted Bill in the worst way. I just couldn’t feel her – she had no credibility. Later, Steffy returned to Spencer and ran into Wyatt. She and Liam discussed the controversial plan to take over Forrester before she shocked Liam with the news that she is still in love with him. Duh!
Chewed up and spit out.
Wyatt worked up a good anger-on while visiting with his dysfunctional family unit of Quinn and Deacon, and then made his way over to Forrester and found himself confronted with the irrational dictator. The way they're writing Rick; talking down to everybody, it was very satisfying for Wyatt to stand up to him and tell him to take his job and shove it!
For however long they can draw out the sexual tension between Ridge and Caroline, I'm all in. Their connection is so sensual and the painting scenario was no exception. Gah.
Brooke may be playing with fire taking Deacon on as her confidante. As mentioned in last week's B&B Breakdown, Quinn was starting to seem like an insecure wreck, so it was a relief to see her get tough and warn Brooke away from Deacon. I'd love to see feisty Brooke and crazy Quinn clash!
Rick flashing back to Amber and Raymond (Usher) was good fun and, as Maya said, helped remind us why Caroline's actions hurt him to the degree they did. Some are taking note of the recent Amber mentions and calling for her return. Vote in Soaps.com's B&B Poll: Would you like to see Amber return?
