Thorsten Kaye, German-American actor

On Friday, we see scenes of characters trying to find the balance between officious intermeddling and vital words of caution.

This issue in part is: how far can you bend the truth until it becomes a lie? Beyond that, when does one’s person’s version of a lie, if not of commission than at least omission, because so potentially toxic to someone you feel it is your duty to protect, give you the moral obligation to make things right, at least in the short term to prevent a tragic long term loss?

Most interesting about the way the characters played these elements out from a creatively written and reality-based script: in the role in which we usually see female characters, we see an outstanding job of Thorsten Kaye as Ridge doing that which we are used to seeing Katherine Kelly Lang as Brooke usually does. It is a refreshing element to watch.
