B&B Breakdown Weekly Blog
Oh snap. (CBS)
“The Bold and the Beautiful” for the Week of April 6 – 10:
It was a week of teasing on “B&B.” We thought Quinn stabbed Brooke, that Carter would tell Rick about Maya, and that Brooke would get Quinn fired, but none of that actually happened. We also got a little tease of Caroline and Ridge, who spoke over the phone. Thoughts:
We were sleeping together!
Carter’s reaction to finding out Maya had been born a male was very powerful. Their scenes, in which each stood firmly to their positions, were amazingly tense. It was kind of a letdown when Carter backed off on telling Rick because of Maya’s flimsy threat to have him fired. Huh? Now he has been reduced to walking around making cryptic comments. Boo. Anyway, if Maya really wants to keep this under wraps she’ll want to be more careful. On at least two occasions she was hollering about being born a man at the top of her lungs to Carter at work. Considering Carter found out by overhearing, she might want to tone it down!
Nicole continued to irk me to no end by badgering Oliver about modeling. Of course Ridge let her do it, which despite how awful she started out, will no doubt lead to her becoming the unlikely new face of Forrester Creations. Annoying. Nicole’s attitude really needs an adjustment. When Maya told Nicole that her transgender status was her private business, she just rolled her eyes and snarked, “Whatever.” When Oliver told her she would have to start out as a fit model, she rolled her eyes like it wasn’t good enough. Ugh! Carter’s little chat with her was satisfying since he called her out on squeezing Maya.
Not in the mood.
Caroline touched base with Ridge this week, and apparently she’s also been chatting with Rick and they’re in a much better place. Okaaay then…
Oh how I love to hear Bill’s nicknames for the men he loathes! Anyway, the Spencers were doing a lot of talking this week but not much else. As mentioned in last week’s B&B Breakdown, they need a plan. Can’t wait until they make a move against Rick!
Well, Brooke and Quinn had it out again, with neither of them pulling punches. It's so fun that Brooke isn't the least bit afraid of Quinn, even though she tells others that she is a dangerous psycho and more volatile than ever. Little does Brooke know, Quinn's already fantasizing about ending her!
Set the date.
In between sessions of scolding Wyatt for lighting a fire under a powder keg, Deacon pleaded with Quinn to believe it was her he wanted, not Brooke, and to set a wedding date. Yike, something tells me it won't be that simple.
Buttering up the boss.
Ooo, Ivy almost got herself in a mess of trouble when she got caught bad-mouthing Quinn to Wyatt. Luckily, Quinn was in a charitable mood and even complimented Ivy on her latest design. Oh boy, now there's a mentor situation waiting to happen. Might make Grandma Ivy more interesting...
Brooke agreed to return to Forrester full-time, presumably to facilitate run-ins with Quinn leading up to the wedding. It was a bit disappointing that Brooke confronted Rick about rehiring Quinn but didn't make it a condition of her return that she be fired. That would have been the last straw, hehe. Brooke instead turned her attentions to taming the beast, aka, disgruntled dress designer Ridge. She really did make a fool of herself snapping her fingers and insisting that she could have him back 'just like that' if she really wanted him. Uh, did she forget that she tried that with the bathing suit and swim deal at her place and he turned her down? In any case, their discussion was pretty satisfying as Brooke needs to stop living in the past for sure and Ridge told her as much. Vote in Soaps.com's B&B Poll: Who should Ridge be with?
Well, Rick and Maya had yet another little love-in in his office, but it ended with him finding her estrogen pills. He asked why she would need to take those. Will she lie?
