B&B Breakdown for the week of December 14.

I wasn’t too inspired by this week’s events, so it’s going to be a short rant, but here’s what stuck out for me.

I have been enjoying Nick’s concern for Sandy and I liked Brooke’s talk with her, but now I’m worried Sandy is going to fall for Nick. Since he will be the first man she can trust since her rape, which she confirmed this week, I fear this is where the story is going. I hope they’ll surprise us by not going down that road though. We’ll see.

Word came down that Sandy is getting a brother in 2010. I’m pretty excited by this as I’d like to see more of her and Whip’s family and I really like the actor, Zach Conroy. He recently played James on Guiding Light and I thought he was very charming and charismatic, so I can’t wait for him to hit B&B as Oliver Jones.
