Where does the Machiavelli statement about “dealing out severities all at once” versus “giving out benefits slowly” apply to this episode?

Machiavelli on dealing with severities versus favors

I included the idea because Devon, upon being betrayed by two people, both of whom he gave out benefits slowly, dealt his reaction with a sudden harshness.  Many would say, “How very un-Devon! He should be quick to forgive, he has made mistakes himself.”

This “nice-guy” Devon was being kinder by dealing his responses swiftly, harshly and directly.  The alternative is the Billy Abbott personality flaw: instead of confronting the person or people with whom he wants to settle an issue or right a wrong, he sneaks around, takes his time, uses secret surveillance, lowering himself beneath the person he even went after, as Adam is more sympathetic at this point than Billy.

Devon is a true adult.  he was not going to sneak around and sabatoge with Dr. Nate Hastings or live-in partner Dr. Elena Dawson slowly, drawing out pain for a woman he loved with all his heart, a cousin he trusted with all his mind, and a free-clinic completed with the two that helped the most in need of that health care, feeding Devon’s spirit.

Ridge and Brooke are still having serious problems in their marriage.

If I could speak for every Bold and Beautiful fan, which is ridiculous, but assuming for one minute I could, I’d shout: “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Sally!” (and more story-lines for Donna!)

In this episode, Peter Bergman as Jack Abbott brings Jabot back to its roots! Tired of the petty fighting between his son and nephew, he brilliantly channels their energy into the business: a new, ‘Classic Jabot’, as Jack’s father would have wanted.

Old School – Back to Jabot Basics’ is needed. Jack sets up a short term showdown as to which Abbott/Vanderway can make his pitch and more importantly have that pitch lead to new – as in classic! – branding and increased sales.

As in the song “I Don’t Have The Heart” by James Ingram, Wyatt can be persuaded to love Sally, but Sally cannot force him to be in love with her with the depth she has for him and he has for Flo Fulton.
