[Testament To The Kind of Man He Is], notes on #bb, 8/18/2021
Notes on betrayals, stalkers and co-parenting on Paramount+ Daytime Drama, episode #yr, s48e203, #bb s34e202
In Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful produced such an old-school cliffhanging episode for Monday that all hats go off to the writing team! Two people called me and asked, “What dog you really think us going to happen?” Not texts — actual phone calls. Five major storylines, all strong leaves the ‘what will Ridge do?’ issue as the most exciting and important.
In Genoa City Wisconsin on the Young and the Restless, new foundations are made, while Ben “Stitch” Rayburn is starting to creep out a lot of people. Meanwhile, the addition of Ashland and Tara Locke have made Victoria finally shine in her role in the business world.

The issues on both shows were about the decisions one makes in regard to whom they ought to place trust, and how much of that trust do they want in one place.
Have you ever been so blindly loyal to someone who has full legal capacity over you who takes your blind loyalty as a ticket to take you to the cleaners, don’t pass go, right to jail? Ever have a friend turn on you as that of what we saw on The Bold and The Beautiful?
Speaking of blind loyalty, Summer cannot be deterred from Kyle. She gave a kidney to Lola who was married to: Kyle at the time of the transplant. Add to that being the step-parent to achild she doesn’t know to a child co-parented by Ashland and Tara Locke, the most haughty and arrogant characters that have been on since Jeff Bardwell was last seen.

Marvin Gaye wrote the 1960s song ‘What”s Going On’, and Eric Forrester’s use of the phrase has the same rhythm to it. So one would think: same rhythm, same words, same meaning, right?

‘That’s What I Pay You For’ | #bb s34e181, June 18, 2021
The Bold and the Beautiful episode 181 made the room light up with talk about the old saying “it’s not what you wear, it’s where you wear it thus how you wear it,” a complement to the better known “it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.”
In this episode, we see the one of the wealthiest and most powerful men alive, Bill Spencer, Jr from prison. His clothes? The exact same scrubs as the angelic (for now) character John “Finn” Finnegan, with the only difference being the ‘L.A. County Jail’ stamps on the back of the shirts.
This happens in other places. Tuxedos! One can wear a tuxedo and receive the Academy Award for the Best Director of the Year. Also, tuxedos are often maitré de mandatory at diners that serve cheeseburgers and eggs. Golfing clothes are often seen on people serving community service as punishment for a D.U.I.
The tempo charts below are based on the song by the Beatles called Let It Be, which was also brought up in the television room after Bill Spencer outlashes at Wyatt in frustration about the actions of Liam. “God, I took care of everything – why couldn’t Liam just have let it be?”
‘Always, Always Be Ready To Compromise’ | June 18, 2021 | #yr, s48e183
Episode 183 features Jack Abbott, the father of Kyle Jenkins Abbott, delivering advice on how to be a father.
During a conversation at Abbott manor, Abby says to her mother-in-law Nina Webster and friend and surrogate mother to her child Mariah Copeland “That’s what friends are for,”in regard to the friendship she has with Devon Hamilton which reminded the people with whom I was watching at the time to start humming the beloved song by Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Dionne Warwick “That’s What Friends Are For,” a beautiful gesture where all proceeds from this song were donated to benefit charities for AIDS research and health care, embedded below.
