Steffy Leaves Liam to Hope on The Bold and the Beautiful




Is any child safe on The Bold and the Beautiful?  First Maya’s (Karla Mosley) dies is a car crash, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) loses her unborn child to a motorcycle mishap and now even the beloved Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) has a miscarriage.  Usually the over fifty crowd needs to be concerned for their safety, not the five belows.

At any rate, this miscarriage at least puts an end to Brooke’s seduction of Eric (John McCook).  I couldn’t handle much more of her ridiculous plan.  I did want to throw a bone where I normally wouldn’t.  I enjoyed Brooke’s attempt at coming clean with Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont).  I found Brooke’s unraveling rather enjoying and it almost felt that Bill was walking a fine line in the hospital afterwards.  Could we eventually see Bill threaten Brooke should the secret eat at her anymore?


Heather Tom has been ah-mazing.  The way Katie handled Hope (Kim Matula) with kid gloves while we once again suffered through Hope’s unrealistic rationalizations.  I can’t express enough how much I want to reach into my television and smack this girl.  Back off the grieving couple, please.  Thank God Katie told her as much, in a very ‘I’m your Aunt and want you happy’ kind of way.

Obviously Jacqueline MacInnes Wood needed to be written out somehow.  Do I like the idea of sending Steffy off to Paris yet again? Not really and Hope, as previously stated, is not on my good side.  Steffy throwing them together because Hope can bear a child is not the key to making me like her.  I get it, Hope really loves Liam (Scott Clifton), but he loves Steffy too and why these ladies feel they can decide his life is baffling. 

Don’t even get me started on the Jailhouse photo shoot with Maya.  I just can’t.

I just hope JMW going on recurring finally means the end of the triangle from hell.

B&B deserves no recognition whatsoever at the emmys, they should get Brad Bell on stage and throw fruit at him for how he's ruined this show

Uh, can I please get you started on the 'jailhouse photoshoot with Maya'???
Sounds like THAT would make for a good article, LOL.

Seems like Heather Tom is filling the Susan Flannery vacuum on B&B. As much as KKL is the face of the show in many ways she's not as skilled or a powerhouse and HT is the only actress on this show who can play the pathos. Congrats on another Emmy nom Heather! Still miss Susan and no one can ever replace her but the show must go on.

JMW (Steffy) has been rocking every single scene during this whole story arc...the is going out with a bang! I don't think I have ever seen her so alive. Shame about the events for Steffy but great for drama!

Liam must be a good joint, cause he keeps getting past around like one.
Here, take a hitt of this and then pass it back.

I havent watched this show in ages, eeven though I DVR it. I was home sick yesterday so I watched, for what may very well be the last time.

1) Steffy & Laim & Hope are an absolute snoozefest. Personally I wish Steffy would take Hope with her to Paris.

2) MAya as a model is almost as believable as Rick being tall. I didnt realize Hope For The Future did Jailhouse chic, I thought it was a joke at first.

3) Brooke needs a man and not her brother in law, grosses me out.

4) They need to stop allowing these actresses to alter their faces, JMW IS starting to look like she could be Hunter Tylo's actual daughter. Such a shame when beautiful women do this to themselves.

Agreed! HT is the only powerhouse actress left on BB. I would focus more on her.

There is an inherent flaw in the logic of the Maya story. Why wouldn't she just tell her boyfriend Rick that Bill is blackmailing her? There are no consequences to her if she just tells Rick.

Also, what's up with Thomas? He's cute and eligible. However, I fear that his future is limited now that his mother, father and sister have all left town.

Finally, I wish Caroline worked at Spencer as a fashion critic. It would give her more of a power base and she could influence Forrester based on her mood.

With Steffi leaving, maybe this lame trio storyline (AKA "I Dream Of Wiennie") will get a much needed rest.

Its lazy writing and the dumbing down of daytime.

Obviously JMW is leaving which is why they did that storyline. Its ok because its something. What else can you have her do?
I like Hope. I think shes smart, sexy, beautiful but shes riding last nerves. I mean let Liam and Steffy grieve before you come on to Liam. Man, be patient and maybe just maybe, stop going after Liam!! How many times have they been together and then broken up etc. Enough, just cut your losses at this point.

Btw, Brooke had a miscarriage?? When did this happen? I must have missed it.

I wish she would hurry up and get out of town and take that dippy Maya with her. Good grief she is bad.

My question is now with Liam and why (besides this dimwits ego) he allows the two women to choose for him who he should be with!!

Honestly this guy is ... Sad to say... As pathetic as hope is in this convoluted story of love and 3 hearts.

It's time for Liam to MAN UP and say he wants neither woman because its just too much drama! Drama he caused by being pathetic.

Sad with brook but the story wasnt told in the right way because it should have been more abt Brooke lying all around and not begging Eric. Dull outcome for a silly short lived and unbelievable storyline. (Let's hope bill bell figured out we hated the idea)

It's now time for Katie to get a marvelously wonderful clean bill of health and the confirmation that the monkey heart she has is baboon so he can conquer the world. Have her discover Brooke slept with bill and do a amazing divorce story line where Katie demands 50% of spencer publishing (bills half anyway).

Lets see Katie become deviant and stand her ground. Eventually a great story of Karen and Katie joining forces and forcing bill out would be great drama.

Hope.

I was astounded to find out Brooke had miscarried the baby! Moreso, because it had to have been planned, which means Bell thought it would be "nice" to have two women suffer a miscarriage within a two week time period. Kinda, weird?

Not that I'm complaining on The Brooke one though - it was dreadful from the beginning anyway, so I'm glad it's done.

Steffy, come back and get Hope knocked off the show....for good! She is not worth watching.

For those who say JMW is a bad actress, let me point out what is left of B&B: one eye cry, squint and you can act, keep your legs close when you do a sex scene, over enunciate your words, bite your lip in almost every scene. For the writers, write a story and keep playing it over and over again. The producers - just use flashbacks. Casting - have everybody almost related so most stories are almost incest.

Brooke miscarried? The triangle from hell could be over? I might just start watching again. Whoopie!

I find miscarriages to be extremely sad and was bummed out by both of B&B's. And Yoryla's right, it's bizarre that there were two miscarriages suffered by main characters within two weeks. How was that necessary? Life is so varied--there had to have been other stories to tell.

Good lord, JMW is too young for the obvious cosmetic work she's having. I saw the pic and first thought "Wow, Hunter Tylo looks better now!"
