In Los Angeles, the Forrester family is dealing with Thomas’s strange behavior.
He hit his head in his apartment, and he has turned to kissing his ideal woman’s mannequin, Hope Logan, who is already married to Liam Spencer III.
On a loud sound audience note, my own mom has been dealing, like everyone alive, with the virus pandemic. In her building, at lunchtime 10-15 people every day socially distance and watch the BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL® and THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS® (CBS television) together and have coffee, tea, snacks and talks during the ads.
Today I was told that a man, who goes by the nickname of “The Joe” who had spent a lifetime wondering what anyone gained out of watching daytime dramas. The Joe is the retired surgeon of the group, thus when people have medical problems they turn to him. Why is that relevant? Because as the resident emergency doctor and everyday medical expert, he is accustomed to people going into a silent respect for everything he has to say, just in case they should need his help, though he believes it is his sheer brilliance people sit quietly to listen to.
On today’s episode, when Ridge told Thomas that he will “a son is always his father’s little boy, even if he grows up to be 6’5″, 280 pound and plays for the Rams.” Said The Joe, “I like that – what’s his name [?] – Ridge. All three of my sons are my little boys, even though none of them was half the athlete I was when I was a young man.”
One could hear a collective quiet yet audible groan beneath everyone face-coverings. My mom said, “If the guy, who calls himself ‘The Joe’ continues to show up at CBS daytime-drama time, the post-episode discussions are going to have to be on Zoom.”
