Lol! You’d think Carter would notice something is awry but no. At least he has someone looking out for him.

And since when is Carter his “best friend”?

This is petty but it's how I feel.  They need to eliminate soaps from Daytime Emmies.  How many does Heather Tom need now to take over the lead as the most number of Best Actress Emmys?  Admirable, but there's only 4 shows now and she's not competing with the likes of Flannery, Erika Slezak, Kim Zimmer, and others that we know.

Well Carter has performed enough Divorces, Annulments, and Weddings for him.

It’s particularly egregious with Heather Tom. She’s not in any way, shape, or form a Lead Actress of this show. She’s barely a Supporting Actress these days. She drives no story. They trot Katie to rage, snot, and have heart attacks for an episode or two each year, and they reap the benefits at the Emmys, which shows how much that system is broken.
 

You’d think Bradley would be like, “Hmmm, that Heather is pretty talented. Let’s give her actual stories.” They never do.

When I've read recaps I haven't heard her mentioned in ages.  The day I tuned in (I wanted to see the new character Paris because I'd not seen her yet), and then Katie and Bill had scenes I was like, Lord, here they go again.  I hadn't read anyone on the boards here mentioning Katie in months, so thought, yeah here they go again.  She bawls over Bill, needs an organ, she takes him back, he screws her over, etc.  I agree with someone above who said they need new blood on this show if they want to get viewers back.  I thought maybe I'd tune in for what I saw from the Paris/Zoey/Zende stuff but I didn't remember yesterday.  Zoey is clearly just going back to scheming and I'm like meh.  Nah.  She already did that back when she was lusting after Xander and used her dead stiff cat to get his attention.

I think Heather Tom needs to sit this year's Emmys out. If anyone from B&B deserves an Emmy this year, its Jacqueline MacInnes Wood. Her work during the Steffy's addiction storyline was amazing.

I think JMW is great, and she’s an actual lead. They certainly gave her a reel out of that rushed, stupid story.

There are glimpses of a great, character-driven drama on B&B, which makes its usual inanity that much more intolerable.

 

As much as I hate his Ridge, TK has a reel there too.

I hadn't seen this.  This was a good performance by JMW and TK.  I really want Ridge to grab Liam in the collar and dare him to come near his daughter again.  Stop the ping ponging and you're not coming NEAR her.  Hope can have you.  But don't continue to do this to her.

    • @Chris B Janet is top-tier supporting HW-- witty, a great gossip and holds her own. However, she is not an Alpha like Gina. And that's fine -- the Melbourne cast worked so well because it was this perfect complementary mix of women who act and react in unique standout ways. Janet works within that mix, but she's not the force of nature driving the show (Gina), nor the bimbo's answer to Blofeld (Lydia).   God, I am really going to miss Lydia! so entertaining.
    • ATL: I thought exact same thing and came here to post the same, regarding Drew vs. LaToya as being shades of Kenya vs. Porsha Season 5:  The two newbies having beef with one another while the veterans watch. This one falls flat though because they *both* look thirsty for the spotlight.  I am okay with Drew overall, but she certainly isn't a breakout star as Kenya & Porsha became. I could see her lasting another season and then fade way into oblivion a la Eva.    It's clear the producers are looking for the next "IT" girl and neither Drew nor LaToya fit the bill. Just my opinion.

Hmm, damage control?   
    • That would actually be a smart thing to do.   They could say that David faked his death because he had gotten into trouble or something. It would be nice for David to finally meet his son. They could even bring back Scotty and have him finally meet his brother.   I haven't seen any of Gregg Marx's work, but I'm sure he still has a lot of appeal
    • Y&R is dusting off old Phyllis/Abby antics for this Phyllis/Sally feud. With Sally’s threat to hit Phyllis “where she least expects it,” it appears they’ll pivot from Sally pursuing Jack to Sally going after Nick. Nick doesn’t have a story beyond Faith, and Sally/Jack has been poorly received (due to their own poor execution, of course—you can’t play a May/December romance like that these days without playing the necessary beats, or people will be grossed out). Clearly, folks are getting vaccinated (?) or guidelines have been loosened, as we’ve now seen Billy/Lily and Devon/Amanda lock lips.
