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?

Marvin Gaye, What’s Going On

The Bold and the Beautiful, on Wednesday June 16, 2021 featured Annika Noelle as Hope Logan Spencer trying to keep her family together.

Tanner Novlan as Finn Finnegan and Thorsten Kaye as Ridge Forrester want to ensure that Steffy’s new boy has a place in the world, a phrase that brings to mind the Pat Metheny Group’s masterpiece ‘A PLACE IN THE WORLD’.

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.

I thought –

  1. how well do you have to know someone before you agree to marry them?
  2. when is it time to forgive someone if you do not think they are being fully genuine with you?
  3. should you give a partner another chance after you find out that they are not as perfect of character as you might have thought?
