Four parts? That's an awful lot of questions for Erika. Because, let's face it, Sutton v Crystal, Dorit trying it with Garcelle, and Hunky Dory would not fill 4 parts.
BH has had an amazing season overall, but it lucked out with the Fall of the House of Girardi for sure. Otherwise it might have been another season of fake Instagram life/let's focus on the petty to avoid talking about what's really going on.
I hear they start filming in a week. Already, Rinna has her SL for the new season, fighting with Sutton about who invited whom to Elton John's charity gala. Bravo probably wants to feature the ongoing Girardi implosion too.
I don't mind having the Vault shared - in fact, it opens up more opportunities for potential contributors! It's part of the reason why I had the idea of purchasing a OneDrive business account - to break down the cost barrier of accessing these episodes and making them more accessible to soap enthusiasts. Additionally, because OneDrive isn't primarily a video streaming/sharing platform like YouTube, it is much less likely to be flagged by the copyright police.
That being said, depending on the mode of communication, use your judgment. As long as there aren't potential powers that be that are lurking in Soap social media groups, sharing the link is completely fine. On the other hand, it might not be the best idea to directly provide the link on the B&B official YouTube channel in the comments - Casey Kasprzyk is very active on that account so really Gilson is just shooting themselves in the foot. But if you want to deter commenters from purchasing episodes from Gilson in a discreet manner, just do something along the lines of "I can provide access to the same episodes for free, unlike Gilson. PM me for details via (insert platform)".
Also, Gilson seems to be quick at deleting my comments LOL so don't directly reply under him.
4x21 was very messy, very soapy and very entertaining. It's probably one of the top ten episodes this show has delivered.
I love how Cristal is turning into the puppet-master behind Blake - hell, it's a plot the original show should've pulled if they hadn't had the attitude that "people like their women strong, but their men stronger".
