Hope Already Has Steffy and Liam Signed Up For Divorce Court on The Bold and the Beautiful

Was everyone else as depressed as I was while watching The Bold and The Beautiful this week?  My heart broke when Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) lost the baby, but as I watched, this episode made me feel just like Steffy.  Liam arrived to pick up his distraught wife and checked her out of the hospital.  Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and Thomas (Adam Gregory) looked on in concern. 

Steffy apologized to Liam as my favorite soap trick, flashbacks, played on.  Even though we saw just how angry Liam really was with his wife the day prior – how great were those scenes – he explained Steffy’s reasoning for getting on the bike.  I want to know why these soap writers insist on killing babies!

Hope (Kim Matula) talked with Katie (Heather Tom) about Steffy and Liam’s loss.  Apparently, she’s already taking bets on how long their marriage will last now that there isn’t a baby to keep them together.  Katie worried all the gifts Bill (Don Diamont) had sent over would upset Steffy, and wanted to have them picked up before she got home.  Hope told her to leave the gifts, because having them removed could signify the end of something, like their marriage.  Katie cautioned her niece to tread lightly with her heart, as Liam is loyal to a fault. 

I don’t care what anyone has told me, or what YouTube clips you have sent me; Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) is Looney Tunes.  How do you ask Eric (John McCook) to pretend to be the father of your baby, and then proceed to tell the man the convoluted plan of how to pull of your shenanigans? This is not a Brooke vs. Taylor thing; this is just stupid.  Someone explain to me why Eric is supposed to care more about Katie’s feelings than the woman he’s currently in a relationship with?

Liam took Steffy back to Malibu, and told her there were baby gifts inside from his dad.  She asked him to get rid of any trace of them.  Earlier, her motorcycle had been dropped off. Instead of having it taken away, Thomas told the tow truck driver to put it in the garage.  Steffy found her bike in the garage and broke down.

    I found it disgusting that Hope was all “Woo-hew! Now that Steffy miscarried, there’s still a chance for me and Liam!”

    Hope all but said that Steffy got what she deserved. It was F’d up.

    The thing is that Eric always had a soft spot for Brooke. No matter what she’s done, they always remained close. At one point he even married her a 2nd time when he was engaged to Jackie, just to cover Brooke’s feelings for Nick who was married to Bridget at that point.
    So I guess that Brooke runs to him is not so far off; using him as a safe haven that can provent her from doing damage to others. Anyway I always enjoyed Brooke and Eric together.

    Hope is pretty insensitive. Unbelievable.

    B&B is ridiculous and it just gets worse as time goes by. The triangle from hell is not exciting to watch, it’s crap. This show needs a makeover. Why not make Jon Hensley a regular and have Brooke go after him. He appears to actually be normal when compared to the other flakey men on B&B. Maybe it’s an LA thing, but this show is silly.

    I kinda see what people said about the writing before I started watching again. For about the last two months I really enjoyed the show.

    Brooke going to Eric and this round of “the trio” makes me wonder how it can go so wrong so fast.

    And this is Brad’s sweeps writing?

    Hope’s conversation with Katie was really startling. I literally said “Bitch!” spontaneously two or three times as shocking statement after shocking statement came out of her mouth. And then the scene ended with Hope, lit like she’s an angel, saying that she’s hanging on to her belief that there’s a chance with Liam now that Liam’s kid-to-be died???? Are they pulling a Caroline on her?

    Hope is an evil little bitch. She is happy that Liam’s child is dead. What did Liam ever see in that empty-headed tart. I use to say Hope was like Taylor as Steffy was like Brooke, but Taylor would never be that cruel as to be happy about the death of a baby.

    This post made me smile! I live in Los Angeles and I can tell you RealityCheck, LA ain’t nothing like this show! The closest this show comes to MY OWN reality here in LA is the time I saw Thorne (Winsor Harmon) at Target or the time I saw Eric (John McCook) at El Torito!

    My friend saw Hunter Tylo buying groceries at Whole Foods so I guess that counts too. haha

    Well people its not a reality show. Its a soap fgs. And B&B is by far the most believalble soap on the air compared to the others. Well maybe Y&R is not as crazy either.

    I like the dynamic between Brooke and ERric, always did. You know, Brad had to do something in character for Brooke. Nick is not there anymore, so it was was a logical choiche she would tyurn to Eric. She did it before. :)

    “I want to know why these soap writers insist on killing babies!”

    Exactly, and more to the point – why are they insistent on killing other people’s babies, except Brooke’s? She’s the only one allowed to have her babies!

    Hope is really being insensitive. I can’t believe I’m even saying this, because traditionally I have always been on Team Hope and have not liked Steffy. But somehow Steffy losing this baby changed it for me. I genuinely feel sorry for her, and do not like the fact that she had to lose her baby, while Brooke gets to keep hers. I’m not necessarily in favor of Steffy & Liam being together, but she should have still had her baby. It would have provided much more drama in the long run, if there was a Steffy/Liam baby and Liam was with Hope. But if it’s true that JMW is leaving, then I guess the point is moot.

    Anyway, I am finally seeing Hope in a not so good light. This is too much. She should only be supporting Steffy & Liam to get past losing their baby, and nothing else.

    I’m also not happy on Katie’s advice to Hope. Because of this Brooke mess, I was hoping Steffy & Katie could become unlikely allies, friends even, and unite against Brooke.

    Before the triangle this character had such potential, as the child of Brooke and Deacon, now I can’t stand her and just breeze right through her scenes.

    Hope hasn’t been interesting since she was dealing with her intimacy issues with Dr. Barton and became a drug addict for like two weeks.

    Steffy was also genuinely compassionate with Hope (the hug on the couch) right before she left Thomas’s place. Makes this whole thing just a little bit worse.

    Its a case of bad writing. Maybe this dead baby was not the plan in the beginning. Just think about it, it doesnt make any sense. Maybe JMW told him she wanted to leave the show, and this baby thing is a reason he needed her to go off without letting SC go. What else kind of story could he have written with JMW leaving in a happy marriage with a child, it would be Ronn Moss all over again, inexplainable. Because no mother would levae her child and no father would leave his child also.

    Someone needs to catch me up….but didn’t Hope originally “belong” with Liam. I don’t know the history of them. And hasn’t Steffi done some things to Hope and Liam?

    pferrando, Yes, Hope and Liam were an item first. Their first obstacle was with Amber, who was claiming to be pregnant with Liam’s child. At that time, Steffy was interested in Bill who was married to Katie. Steffy first fell in love with Liam when he saved her from drowning in the bath tub. Bill had just told Steffy he couldn’t be with her, and Steffy was suicidal.

    I have traditionally been on Team Hope & Liam, and just thought of Steffy as a manipulator and an interloper. And be that as it may, somehow her losing this baby and the real, raw grief and shock she is feeling over it, has changed my feelings for her. I actually feel sorry for her, and the fact that Hope would even think about, let alone plan her future with, Liam right now is a travesty. Steffy used to be her step-sister! A little compassion, please.
