More outstanding performances by Annika Noelle as Hope and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as Hope and Steffy, respectively, as they try to handle what Ms. Forrester calls “the biggest crisis in my life” highlight the February 8, 2021 episode.
Friday’s episode features Annika Noelle as Hope Logan.
The [original] Hope, Kimberlay Matula left the program. The shoes to fill were unique and well known to fans of the show. In other words not enviable.
This version of Hope in Annika resonates with me insofar as her bold, silent-when-needed poise and strength. My bet is that she was an excellent actress who has gotten much better while on the show working with the best in the business.
Thomas telling Liam to face himself and look in the mirror and realize that William Spencer III himself is the source of most of his own problems, like the rest of us, was a spark and interesting turn in storyline from Thomas as perpetually unreasonable episodes. Like the rest of us, Thomas has his good days and his bad days without ever knowing which is coming.
Hope and Steffy’s relationship with Brooke and Ridge regarding the ‘is it this man or is it that man?’ situation. Their conversations are notably candid and open yet not tacky or gauche.
When Carter Walton, Esq, the Chief Operating Officer of Forrester Creations, as well as their in-house legal cousel, confronts Zoe Buckingham, Forrester’s lead model, on her conflicting signals, the acting skills of Lawrence Saint Victor and Kiara Barnes are on full display.
I thought –
- how well do you have to know someone before you agree to marry them?
- when is it time to forgive someone if you do not think they are being fully genuine with you?
- should you give a partner another chance after you find out that they are not as perfect of character as you might have thought?
Season 34, episode 91 of the Bold and the Beautiful, raises many issues and asks a series of questions, among these parts of drama lie the harshness of the unknowing:
- who does Zoe really love?
- who really loves Zoe?
- who is the father of Steffy’s baby?
what should one who knows bad news do knowing that ‘no one likes the bearer of bad news’?
