To be honest this Othello actor is a bit painful to watch at times... I wish they would have put Oliver in his place.

Markjeh you rock that shirt! And you also are a cutie. Way to go biggrin.png

This A storyline is so exciting and well-paced to me, that I don't feel the lack of a B story. Especially considering how boring everyone can get on this show.

I would also like to add that I never saw why they kept KM and LSV. But I stand corrected. I love them on the show, they've been priceless additions, especially KM.

HOT DAMN!!! Friday's episode gave me life! Rick pulled off the Soap Opera Takeover effortlessly. Apart from all the drama that will (hopefully) come from this, Ridge very much deserved this slap in the face because God knows he's f-cked people over, especially Thorne, many a time. And JY played the conniving businessman/son/adulterer perfectly, without ever becoming too much or unsympathetic. That is not an easy thing on today's soap climate. B&B does boardroom drama now better than Y&R. ph34r.png

Too much Othello. Way too much. Way way waaaaay too much. But I see why they needed him.

LG gave EXCELLENT reaction to Rick's announcement that he is still with Maya and their marriage is over. I expect, DEMAND, a full explosion on the next episode. I don't want her to just get pissed and run into Ridge's arms--I want her to get REVENGE.

YAAAAS, hunni.

Can any of you lovely betches give me dates of exactly when (or thereabouts) Rick & Maya's affair started, Ridge & Caroline's 'affair' and when Rick first introduced this idea about the papers? Would be much appreciated. Thanks!

OK. I cheated and read the TV listing previews for the episodes this week and I think it's going to be a good week for B&B. Who'd have thought that Quinn's selfie with Bill > Ridge in drink > Partnering with Caroline 2.0 > Best B&B storyline in a long time.

"GET OUT!!!!!!!" Yas, Caroline, hunni, you tell 'em! :lol: LG showed up for WORK today, in looks AND acting. She's a perfect example of an actress/character I initially found merely acceptable but has graduated into something better (with the help of the story). And Jacob Young was also great. These two carried the weight of the reveal flawlessly. I was surprised Caroline still wants to make it work but it would have been too quick if she swore revenge straight away. She'll try, he'll continue to treat her like crap, and at some point she will snap. I am HERE for this!

Maybe next time Eric will listen to Carter.

LOL at Ivy asking Maya if she's sure about her place in Rick's life. I will die laughing if Maya's move into the Forrester mansion ends up with her having her things thrown out.

Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but lately they've styled and dressed Caroline in a much darker way. Makes me wonder if she might take a turn to the bad, darker, Spencer side. One can hope smile.png

I'm telling ya, she needs to swear sweet, sweet revenge!

As for the clothes, I definitely noted the use of red during a boardroom confrontation... reminded me of the classic Brooke scenes in which she'd show up for this type of stuff in red.

Today's show was so good! JY and LG brought it for sure! This was great writing/acting/directing all around and just what daytime needs more of. Who needs fancy outdoor shots (tho B&B does them best) or stunts when you can put a bunch of characters with history together into one room and let the sh*t fly!!

Of course, you need a bunch of characters that actually have history together. No one cares about twenty newbies.

And that's what makes this really work - Myrabella and Rick have a solid history prior to this, then Myrabella/Carter and Caroline from previous summer. Obviously, Rick/Eric/Ridge. B&B has done a great job of taking some backburned, criminally in JY's case, characters are making a rocking A story that has everything - corporate, romance, deception, family, etc. Kudos to Brad for having a great post-Hope plan. (I think they knew a long time ago that KM was leaving.)

BTW - I've noticed during the past couple of months, that Caroline/Carter have had 'little' chats together. I wouldn't mind having them test this out a little further. Honestly, they could be smoking together for some type of fling. However, I think the real money is the bizarrely hot and sort of taboo chemistry between TK/LG. My only hope is that they somehow get JJ back (via $Bill) even for two episodes to rip into Ridge about the whole Caroline 2.0.

Even I was scared when she screamed that…LOL…great episode today!

Great pic! Let me go compare..lol

Thank you darlings wub.png

Speaking of which, B&B needs a B story.

Yes, it does. A romantic Aly/Oliver storyline is overdue. Or anything with Bill and Katie.

I never thought in a million years, Mayan would be then reason I got hooked on B&B, but She has been a marvel to watch. From her delusions of grandeur to her unapologetic thristiness, I just want her to win it all. She has become a classic soap schemer, one not written under the guise of "crazy". And Caroline, I've always liked her, weirdly enough around the time they started to rewrite her character, when Maya and Rick first got together, was when I liked her the most.

I want to see both win, but that is a stretch. But in the meantime, I can't wait for Maya's reign in the Forrester mansion. I need her to put up her own portrait just for [!@#$%^&*] and giggles.

Linsey said Brad Bell said he was going to shake things up and bring Thorsten in on it, and damn it was a great idea!!!

    • RHUGT: I echo the sentiments here. I went into this thinking Vicki & Tamra are going to remind us all why they're needing on the mothership. Tamra? Yes. Vicki? Nah, I'm good now.  Besides being Debbie Downer on steroids, her overly prim, conservative reaction to anything sexual is old and tired (fitting, huh?). Plus, the whole anti-vax thing?  Yeah, let this be your Housewives swansong.  I'm still good with Tamra though. She's still a Housewives pro and plays the game well.  Taylor and Eva are surprising breaths of fresh air. I'm digging their friendship. Eva definitely seems more at ease in this setting and gives great commentary. Too bad they can't plop onto another city franchise.  Face work and badly done makeup... yeah, it can be harsh looking at Taylor, Brandi, and Vicki. At least Taylor's face has recovered from her years of drinking. This Phaedra is the Phaedra I know and love and... miss. I was side-eying her return to Housewivesland, but her comments, reactions, and her ability to make it nice with all the women of the group has been a welcome return.  Jill. I love my thirsty Jill Zarin (LOL at Brandi calling Jill out on her thirst to rejoin NYC on WWHL with Jill right next to her. Jill was noticably irked by that). She's a little underwhelming in terms of a personality so far, but her side digs (watch out Dorinda) and talkative nature is always fun. Sounds like she'll get into the mix more later.  Dorinda's reaction to Brandi's "national television" reminder to Jill while they played that game was classic Final Years of Dorinda on RHONY.  Girl, you need to give up control of EVERY single aspect of every function during this "Girls Trip."  On one hand, I would love her to be on the NYC OG cast, but she's gotta tone down the nastiness.  Can't wait for Episode 4!

    • First time he’s ever beaten Andy, who used to smoke servebots.
    • I have asked this question for YEARS!!  He doesn't care about real Roman and he's the one who killed Orpheus's wife.  I don't think there has ever been an explanation and they seemed to have just added that to John's backstory.   It's probably too hard to explain.  I am not sure Orpheus's endgame.  He isn't a super villian.  His target was Roman and his family because of his wife's death.  He wasn't a crazy lunatic.  He was a good guy gone bad.  Even Stefano at his worst, most cartoonish had a specific goal or endgame for his plans even if it just was to destroy the Bradys/John or make Marlena his queen. .  The whole Jan/Evan thing might be a round about way to screw with John/Marlena via their child, but it seems like a lot of work and planning to pull this whole scheme off when the only reaction is that a handful of people are a little bummed about it lol.   Anyway, I actually do think Jan could work on the canvas without Shawn.  I would be willing to give HL a shot to do something else.  I mean, a serial killer is our leading man so...... I had to laugh at the dress Jack and Jen picked out.  A beautiful prarie maxi dress from Free People bought at Nordstrom Rack.  LITERALLY.  It is very Marci Miller's Abby though I guess.  I am just not sure that oversized piece of endless cloth would wow anyone let alone her husband.  The acting was much better for CM and MA today though.  JJ and Chad were good as well.
    • People will post thirst traps to anything. I suppose Kate would be honored:  
    • I vaguely remember that story. Someone posted a TV promo for that storyline and for some reason, I found the promo pretty funny. The actress seemed solid and engaging, as as she was clearly a vixen. Had the character been someone like Kirk Anderson instead of Sean Baxter, who was fairly new and had a very thin tie to the canvas through Courtney, (a fairly recently introduced character herself), the story may have had more resonance but I guess, given Kirk’s recent storyline with Lenore, Kirk’s ex-wife and coming off the very messy storyline of his breakup with Iva to marry her sister Eli (which still seems so wrong even now, decades later), not to mention an early storyline introducing Kirk’s former employer and ex-lover Adelaide Fitzgibbon, it might have been too much of a “case of the ex” for Kirk.
