Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) tore into Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) and Ivy (Ashleigh Brewer) over the design presentation on Tuesday’s episode. However, his reaction had less to do with their work at Forrester Creations and more to do with his boiling jealousy and anger with Caroline.
The situation escalated quickly with Rick accusing Caroline of being with Ridge (Thorsten Kaye). Ivy defended Caroline saying Rick’s accusations weren’t fair since he is sleeping with Maya (Karla Mosley). However, when Caroline’s silence became her confession Rick told her she was fired her and ordered her out of Forrester Creations.
Liam (Scott Clifton) had been outside the boardroom door waiting for Ivy and Caroline’s meeting with Rick to end, but when he heard Rick’s wrath he burst inside and pushed Rick to the floor. He warned Rick that he couldn’t talk to Ivy and Caroline that way.
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Tuesday episode was on fire. It continued the show’s run as the best soap of 2015 so far. The confrontation between Rick and Liam reminded me of conversations we’ve had on the Daytime Confidential podcast. Jamey Giddens has pointed out that B&B needs to make Liam darker like his father Bill (Don Diamont). He also suggested that Liam needs to use Spencer Publications as a vengeful weapon against Rick. Hopefully Tuesday’s episode is a preview of such a storyline to come.
