Since this year began, B&B has been hard to watch even though it’s only 19 minutes long. Steffy seems to be running everything and everyone and Ridge and Brooke are STILL having sex in every episode. The 6/4 episode changed all that for me. Judging by the reactions on Twitter and other soap blogs, I am not the only one. Brooke has managed to sleep with her virgin daughter Hope’s boyfriend Oliver. It wasn’t that long ago that Brooke had a torrid affair with Deacon Sharpe who just so happened to be married to her daughter Bridget. That affair led to the birth of Hope. The irony is uh-mazing.
Brooke, still clinging to her youth, donned the exact same dress as her daughter and seduced Oliver, whom she thought was Ridge, up against the side of the building. Oliver looked pleased as punch when he returned to the party, only to look up and see Hope. The look on his face was priceless as he realized that he hadn’t been with Hope after all. In slow motion, Oliver’s new lover sauntered into the party and pulled off her mask. Voila! It’s Mother of the Year, Brooke Logan Forrester!
Brooke is so fertile, if a man blows on her she gets pregnant. I seriously hope that isn’t the case with Oliver. However, I do look forward to seeing the fallout from this dirty debacle. It makes for good story!
Thanks to Daytime Confidential for the screencap!
The third time is obviously not the charm for B&B’s Bridget and Nick. On Friday, Aggie fell to the bottom of the stairs after a heated debate with Bridget. Surely whatever feelings Nick has for Aggie are going to increase now! Bridget seems to think the same this week when she runs out on Nick over the Aggie baby debacle. Bridget will run to the lonely offices of Jackie M for some think time. The Jackie M offices will not be so empty, and Owen will comfort Bridget in her time of need. Yes friends. One thing will lead to another and the two will make love. I have to admit I thought B&B was taking the road always traveled with this storyline and that Nick would be sleeping with Aggie before we could say “Nick is a man whore”. What does this mean for the great love of Nick and Bridget? Must not be so great after all…..
Last week Steffy lived up to her namesake and proved that she is indeed Stephanie Forrester’s granddaughter. After getting her hands on Katie’s engagement ring, she knew it would the perfect opportunity to blackmail the great $Bill and snatch the company back from him.
I have to give it to Steffy. She was smart to know what Bill’s weaknesses were and knew exactly how and when to strike. Even though it was pure good luck for Steffy to find the engagement ring that night at Bill & Katie’s bedroom, she still proved to be a dangerous mix of Stephanie’s overprotectiveness of her family and Brooke’s savvy seduction powers.
Watching Steffy play with the tough ruthless Bill Spencer and scheme to get her family’s company back kind of made me like her for the first time since she “grew up”. But all that changed the second she explained what R.E.S.T stood for.
Steffy never kept her hatred for the Logan sisters a secret, and I can understand why she would hate Katie for helping Bill take the company at the first place, and Donna for forcing her beloved granny out of Forrester Creations. And neither Katie nor Donna deserve to be owners of FC, but whether Steffy likes it or not, Brooke has played a huge part in the company’s success over the years; so excluding her from the ownership is a childish and stupid move.
So Ridge and Eric stood there and watched Taylor, who knows nothing about fashion or running a fashion company, become an owner of Forrester Creations. But I wasn’t surprised they said nothing about that, because those two men always been useless. They always depend on their wives to do all the decisions for them, so when Steffy (the new bitch in charge) said “sign” they said “amen”.
Brooke and Donna were a little too late to the party as the contract had already been signed and when they found who the new owners were, Brooke gave Ridge her “you son of a bitch” look. And we know Brooke isn’t going to go down without a fight, so look for a big Dynasty-esque catfight between Brooke and Taylor this week!!
Looks like this week Ridge goes back to his old indecisive crappy self and locks lips with Taylor. After having Brooke and Ridge happy together and Taylor finding a new beau in Whip, this revisited triangle would be enough to make me take a break from the show. However, here’s why I won’t do that just yet…
Brooke and Ridge are a sweet couple together, but soap couples always be at their best during angst and nobody gives better angst than those two. This time it’s going to get ugly when they exchange some pretty harsh words. As much as this triangle has become old and used, it’s always entertaining to watch Brooke and Taylor battle it out, even if the man isn’t worth it.
On B&B this week, Katie discovered the truth about the Dare line via a confession from Brooke. Katie immediately shared the devastating news with her husband, Bill. After that, all hell broke loose. Heather Tom brought all her skills to the table, defending her sisters to her overpowering husband. I could see Katie’s heart ripping in two as she realized she had to choose between her hot ass husband and her family. She chose Donna and Brooke in the end, but her heart is still wholeheartedly with Bill. Kudos to Heather Tom. We can’t wait to see what happens next!
