The Bold and the Beautiful® featured the harsh stand off between a wife and a wife’s friend who the husband temporarily prefers.
I cannot imagine a man with the forgiveness of Eric Forrester not talking Quinn back.
The song that came to mind was John Denver’s “Leaving’ On A Jet Plane,” as the first lines of the song, as Flo’s first lines to Eric were, “My bags are packed, I’m ready to go…the taxi’s waiting and he’s blowing his horn.”
Today’s episode revolved around the strength of the women of Genoa City and Nina and Jill from even beyond Genoa City being those who were taking firm control of their families.
Every woman – Phyllis, Chelsea, Chloe, Victoria, Nina, Jill, Abby and Amanda displayed an almost supernatural human strength on the episode and in the town in Wisconsin today, a strength called “being a woman.”
In one of the fastest opioid recoveries of all time, Steffy Forrester beats her addiction. Moreover, good Dr. Finnegan is after her
Meanwhile, Zendé is interested in Zoe and the attraction seems mutual. That would be great but for Carter’s wild interest in Hope.
Also, Thomas is pining after Hope, who is married to Liam. Liam, secure in his marriage, seems to be leaning to Steffy. As his father Dollar Bill says in this episode to his son William Spencer, Jr: “A part of you will always love Steffy.”
This episode features Dr. John Finnegan. What is so “nice’, from the way he dresses, smiles at everything, just “gets” all ideas abstract and mechanical, and is willing to to anything for the love of Steffy? Just about everything, from his too perfect smile to his baby powder blue sweatwershirt.
A man in Finn’s shoes would notice that of a Liam, who has a child with Steffy and can’t seem to stop loving her. Finn is one honest man. He goes right to Liam and says his close attachment to Steffy makes him uncomfortable. It his almost Finn is *too good* to be true. Are we seeing foreshadowing of another side of the Doctor?
Highlighted above on the summary sheet with the true fun on the episode, the ravings of Thomas!
From his bragging “I am damn good at what I do – actually, I am the best,” he continued on with Hope” I’ve got the talent, the experience and the *pedigree*” Humans with pedigree. Sounds troubling, and past being prologue, that’s something to watch for – the DNA/dynasty thing. Here is a rare case of a third generation of a company being loaded with most artistic genius and business talent.
Thomas is a designer who is losing his mind at the same time he is producing his best line a clothes.
A third generation Forrester dress designer, Thomas is maybe even more of a genius than his father Ridge and Grandfather Eric combined. He certainly is showing the tortured signs of Van Gogh in this latest episode.
Here is where the pure power afforded the Forrester family-company-business is given such deference in fictionalized Los Angeles and the world that Thomas can hide away from anyone and still look and act “the part.”
The plot in Genoa City today on the problems of the haves and the wishes they did.
Theo Vanderway, long lost relative to Dina Abbott Mergeron, is bitter that he has been all but shunned from her will while his already rich Abbott cousins seem to take their wealth for granted.
This begrudging jealousy is puzzling. Theo, though left out of one Abbott will feels bad, is still welcome in the family, and moreover there are plenty of opportunities which the Abbotts have all but handed him.
His talent? He is a professional “influencer,” which means he tells you what your taste in arts and entertainment ought to be. You’d think someone with such a job that requires criticism and judgment for everything would have thicker skin than he is showing.
