“I don’t think we’ve ever seen a couple so in love” – Jack Finnegan to the Eric, Ridge and Brooke Forrester
“Finn wouldn’t want us standing here – he’d want us to party” – Steffy to Ridge
Part 1 – every day with Finn is a honeymoon
Part 2 – I have had a lot of trouble in my life
Episode 215 features Lawrence Saint Victor doing pull-ups and having before and after intimacy talks with Quinn.
When the character Carter is able to do any of his work? Off-screen! Who wants to watch an attorney research or a Chief Operating Officer sweat over spreadsheets of the xlsx variety when we can see his relaxation time in spread sheets (sorry) with the “spellbinding, gorgeous, mesmerizing” (Carter’s perfect words) lover, Quinn Fuller?
Doing double-duty in both episode 214 of The Bold and The Beautiful and The Young and The Restless is American actor John McCook, in the middle of multiple storylines on both programs.
On both #YR and #BB, John is seen as Eric Forrester being played by selfish characters as Sally Spectra and to a more righteous extent Phyllis Summers for his good nature and in business.
Episode 213 is no less than a first time all out meeting between Steffy’s parents and Finn’s parents since son Hayes has been born
In Genoa City, much of the suspense of Thursday and Friday’s episodes came from people unknown. Who is holding Mariah? Where is Chance Chancellor? How should Devon act as the head of the Winters family now that Neil is gone? What should Tara do without anything but grifting as a known skill?
On The Bold and the Beautiful in Los Angeles, it is just sex and sorrow mode – sex for Carter and Quinn, sorrow for poor Eric Forrester who has gone through more mortified moments one one week than most could endure in a lifetime. The peak of course was a couple of days ago when the best friend of his son, the man who is the family’s business, personal lawyer, and a certified wedding priest announces he has been having sex with the “groom” who is there to renew his wedding vows. Brutal. By contrast, Paris Buckingham has such savage, perfect luck that even as a character if she sold “Paris’s Luck” unisex cologne/aftershave, I’m buying it.
