  1. To be fair, Steffy did tell Brooke about the proposal "in confidence". To explain why she told Hope, she admitted Steffy "confided" in her and she needed to "confide" in Hope. Then, Hope said Brooke told her about the proposal "in confidence". It's as if Hope and Brooke don't understand the meaning of the word they're using.
  2. I'm wondering if the papers Justin was so desperate to have Bill sign not only remove Liam and Wyatt from Spencer Publications but also install Justin as CEO. Justin knows Bill trusts him and would sign anything he put in front of him. This is all soap opera law, of course, but it would provide a motive for Justin being the shooter.
  3. Yes, she made the choice for herself. She also made it publicly without consulting her fiance which just revealed gross immaturity and self-absorption on her part. I'm not buying into the sleep-with-a-man-to-keep-him idea that some were pushing but I do think a mature conversation with the man she intended to marry would have been appropriate.
  4. I have to say, I thought HT was perfect in her scene with JMW. The reading of the paternity test, the utter lack of defensiveness at being caught, the uncertainty as to how to have any sort of conversation and, finally, the physical embrace of someone who has just fucked up. (Royally, once she finds out the other possible father was $Bill). That all seems actually in-character to me. Katie has had a lot of time to move past, or at least bury, her enmity towards Steffy. She's been her stepmother-in-law twice and they've had to put their differences aside for the sake of family. Much the same way Stephanie I came to see Brooke as more of a "daughter" than a rival, it makes sense that Katie has moved on too. I think JMW was good in their scene too. Righteous indignation at Katie the Snoop followed very closely by realization that the jig is up and that having Katie know is the least of her problems. And, finally, the collapse in tears into Katie's arms.
  5. Brooke really is just the worst. Playfully pushing Thorne to remember he said he wants her back after she just told him she's engaged to his brother? "Remember what you said?" "Giggle, giggle!" And Katie had me rolling. "Were you absolutely clear with Thorne that you have no feelings for him?" Ha. Since when has Brooke ever cut what she can untie?
  6. Ridge had his 30th birthday in 1990, so the character should be 57. Think they've de-aged him a bit, though.
  7. I think a perfect opportunity for TPTB to show another side of the Ridge-Thorne relationship would have been after Thorne tore into Ridge in that meeting in his office and Ridge's response was "Are you going to cry?"*. That could have led to both of them laughing, like brothers, and enjoying a moment together with something other than complete enmity towards one another. It would have shown they are more than just adversaries and competitors, that there's shared history and affection there too. *As much as I've harped on TK's lack of charm or humor, that line made me laugh out loud.
  8. Either IR's Thorne will revert to his never-winning, bland personality or he will be shipped off back to Paris. IR's Thorne is light-years ahead of TK's Ridge in attractiveness, charm, etc. If the show doesn't take advantage of this to reboot Thorne, beyond his relatively newfound desire to design, TPTB should be fired. Or, I suppose TK could call it quits. I can't see him being ok with being upstaged by a B&B newcomer. But, upstaged he is. TK has never ever worked as Ridge. Looks aside, his characterization of Ridge is brusque, mean-spirited and charmless. At least RM had his looks, was pretty good at light humor and had a degree of charm. TK has none of that. And it's going to become increasingly apparent when he and IR square off.
  9. WH was also the first Thorne to really compete with RM's Ridge in the looks department. Clayton Norcross was always a bit doughy and Jeff Trachta was . . . tall. With IR in the role, Thorne is now actually better-looking (and more charming) than Ridge. YMMV, of course.
  10. What I hate is the gaslighting of the non-cheating spouse. Liam proclaimed to anyone who would listen that he was just trying to right the wrongs Sally endured and that he had no "feelings" for her. We all knew that was a crock but that's how he sold it. It was all in Steffy's head and should she believe her husband or her lying eyes? Sally, too, even up to the moment she was buried in the rubble of Spectra, proclaimed her feelings for Liam were innocent and that she wasn't hitting on him. Now, we know that was a lie too. They both continued with the mutual, but platonic, admiration right up to the time it became something everyone else knew all along. That it wasn't platonic and they had feelings for each other.
  11. What happened to the whole "I love you in an innocent way" thing? Now, Sally's going to leave town because of the kiss that she said was just a sign of appreciation?
  12. As the tension mounted, I could feel the redux of the we're-about-to-die kiss between Bridget and Ridge. This show is nothing if not unoriginal.
  13. I think they're reconciling Bill and Liam, legitimately, so the pain of Steffy's and Bill's betrayal when they finally hit the sheets will cut even deeper.
  14. In the comic books, Attilan was in The Himalayas for many years, and was subsequently relocated to The Blue Area on the moon. So, fanwanking says these Inhumans are basically earthlings who now reside on the moon.
  15. Steffy: "I told you Sally is my arch rival!" Liam: "I thought that was a figure of speech." Hilarious.
