The next episode is GOLD and yet strange because the most important scene happens halfway through it and not at the end.

 

Whoa, you weren't kidding. Great episode all around and I was not expecting Todd to kill both himself and Angela. Those shots of their bodies were quite scary -- never thought they'd do something like that!

I was shocked to see those scenes many years ago because they have been around forever in Italian. It's a really bold story climax, yet the built up does not hold up to classic Bill Bell standards. It's like a writer's strike story finished within 5 seconds after the strike has ended which is kinda sad. That said; it's getting reallllllly wicked eventually and perfectly over the top in ca. 2 months' time.

I'm actually liking pre-Thorne Macy a lot... she has an edge that the show sadly softened later on. 

 

One thing I will say I like about Bill Bell and the early years of Bold... is that he probably had intentions of pairing certain characters together.. but didn't telegraph it too much to the audience so when the characters did finally meet.. it made perfect sense.  He did that with Brooke/Ridge in the early episodes (they don't meet till episode 60.. but hints were dropped of her interest in his/Caroline's engagement.. but from an eager bystander pov).. and he does that with Macy/Thorne as well.  Developing Macy as a character first.. and getting Thorne to a point where it would make sense for the two to meet.

 

And I do like in the early season 3 episodes where Donna is in limbo with school, life, love.. and than she meets Macy.. thus starting her character's eventually next orbit (Spectra.. I think)

Can you post the link to those scenes, I'm having trouble finding them.

I was watching the newest episode uploaded on Amy Silence's channel 536... and after seeing Thorne/Brooke together plus Caroline remarking how perfect they would be together... I don't get why the show didn't try to pursue Thorne/Brooke at this time instead of having Brooke go for Eric.  Maybe when this Thorne left, the plans changed?

I've often wondered if Bill Bell's original intention in 1990 was to pair Brooke with Eric (elements of the Jill/Phillip/Katherine and Jill/Stuart/Liz storylines from Y&R) or if he changed the storyline because KKL became pregnant in real life.
