Brooke is Doing a Little Family Planning on The Bold and the Beautiful




Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is starting to depress me. Then again, I’m finding myself rather depressed throughout most of The Bold and the Beautiful lately.  Great scenes for Wood once again, but I’m going to need a little more from B&B and I don’t mean a refill for Prozac 

This stupid idea of Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang), to reunite her family with Eric (John McCook), is so stupid. I just used the word stupid two times in one sentence.  So nice of Bridget (Ashley Jones) to happen to be back in town for that convenient little family get together.  How over-the-top sugary, sweet was that?  “Gee Dad, you and Mom sure looked swell.”  
 


Rick (Jacob Young) playing into his mother's hand and suggesting that his single parents get back together was too much. Too bad they didn’t pull Hope (Kim Matula) away from her stupid idea. Look, I just said stupid again.

What is wrong with Hope?  Better yet, why is Liam (Scott Clifton) such an idiot?  Your wife just lost your child.  We get it. You’re upset, but don’t go running off to another woman. I want to see more scenes of Liam struggling to keep his anger in check, letting it slip here and there.  I don’t want to be mad at him for running to Hope and letting her kiss him.  I want to feel for him and, right now I’m back to feeling he’s just an idiot — again. 

Taylor (Hunter Tylo) crossed the line going to Hope and telling her to keep her distance where Liam was concerned.  Both these mothers would do themselves some good by minding their own business.  Brooke wouldn’t be knocked up by her brother-in-law and Taylor’s man wouldn’t be thisclose to considering a stupid plot point. 

As depressing as the loss of the baby has been, Wood and Scott really do something special, even with the simplest of scenes.  You feel the loss coming off them in waves.

Brooke wanting Eric to be the baby daddy and play happy family-PATHETIC

The triangle from hell is back on-OH YEAH ME!!!! Sez Brad Bell.

Come on the scenes with SC, JMW, HT and DD over the loss of the baby have been good. The rest of this crap is pap.

I wish that they had Brooke SCHEME to trick Eric into thinking the child was his since she did threaten Taylor with the simple notion "if she wanted him she could have him". It would have been soooooooo much better and fun to watch Eric battling with the fact he is going to be a dad again.

Then down the road with someone blackmailing Brooke with the truth and the eventual reveal of the baby daddy would have been 2 years TOPS/minimum of great soapy story!

As for the Liam Steffy Hope crap fest starting up again. NOW I WANT LIAM of all people to rail into Hope to leave him alone and STOP BEING SO GOD DAMN selfish!!! He just lost his unborn child and the last thing he is thinking about is Hope. Have him walk out on Hope saying he is disgusted in her because he needed a friend and not another lover at that moment!

And let liam then battle with his anger towards Steffy over her own stupidity on riding a motorbike. Eventually Hope willl come to apologize to Liam and it should be then that Liam says with all the confidence he can muster that Hope and he are finished. He can't keep jumping back and forth. He does not want to see Hope any more.

Not that he would take Steffy because her actions have crushed him to the core. I think we should see Liam turn dark and more SPENCER because of this story. That, too, would give the show a couple of years of story just with that direction.

Of course, its just repeat repeat repeat.

I think Steffy needs to snap out of it actually. It was a terrible loss, but this is already going on way too long.

How bout Liam chooses neither for once, and just moves on. Let all three move on.

But I gotta stop having Steffy mourn in that monotone voice of hers.

Love Eric and Brooke together, but the storyline sucks.

So if Eric goes along with Brooke's scheme they are going to rename the show to NOT MY CHILDREN?

I love to watch the show each, but the story line they trying to bring with Brook and Eric is so stupid. I agree with the the baby loss and how they making the rest of the story line crappy. The writer need to reconsider making Eric take the responsibility of Brooks and her brother-in-law baby. Let Brook take responsibility for a change in the life. I think she and her daughter needs to grow up!

They have pigeoned holed themselves into a corner now with Katie's heart constantly failing because it makes it cruel for anyone to do anything to her. The response will always be "OH MY GOD, HER HEART!!!" every time Katie looks sad.

I mean, its a detriment to the acting abilities of Heather Tom because "katie" will never be able to get to the level of anger that this story will warrant without everyone IMMEDIATELY saying "I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Katie, sit down, think of your heart. Your heart, Katie. Should we call Doctor Meade?!! Your Heart"

Also that they are not addressing the fact that she needs a new therapist and has to deal with her depression and anxiety in a better way than she is on this show. That's one way to allow Heather to truly ACT when the reveal of Brooke's baby and the father is uncovered. We need to see that Katie has admitted her fears with Bill, Brooke, and anyone who says BOO so that when she does hear that pathetic news we know about, NO ONE THINKS "your heart. Think of your heart!!"

We need to know she is strong.

That being said, I think it will be fun to see Taylor get gut punched over the revelation that Eric is the "father" and that in a moment of weakness after Stephanie past, he and Brooke succumbed to "grief passion" and he ONCE AGAIN implanted his seed in the MOST FERTILE OF FERTILE PLANTERS IN GOD'S GARDEN, Brooke.

It's better drama watching Taylor pissed off than watching the insensitive Hope beg and discuss with Liam, a man who just lost his baby, whether or not the two of them are meant to be together!

UGH

WIth the reignited friendship that Thomas is having with his step sister, it would be great if he spoke to Hope and explained to her that she is being selfish. Liam and HIS SISTER STEFFY just lost a child and she is asking Liam to dump his wife to take her back.

Someone has to say "HOPE, you are hopelessly selfish. STOP IT. Life is not revolving around you right now. Its around Liam and Steffy. Let them come out of this pain and then fight Steffy for Liam, the WUSS OF MALIBU."

And I am secretly hoping that Maya turns out to be CRAZY! That after Bill threatens her with the pics, she continues to date Rick in secret, telling Rick they should date in private so it doesn't look like she got her job cause she's screwing the boss. Then, have Bill find out and he goes berzerk on her and gets her arrested. She gets off somehow but all is revealed about her past and she gets dumped by FORRESTER and Rick. That sends her into a tailspin that leads to her going on a rampage the likes of SHEILA CARTER or Patti on Y&R.

That would be fun! She can start by killing off Dayzee, cause Dayzee kicks her out of the storage closet she rents her above her coffee shop.

Homeless makes Maya CRAYCRAY.
