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.
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?
Nothing blinds the logical mid like love. Nothing makes us fear as much as responsibility.
In Monday’s episode, Carter Walton, a man who could use the truth to better evaluate his fairy-tale idea of a love-situation, cannot handle the truth, or rather, the state of infatuation in which one does not even wat to hear the truth – though it is right in front of one’s face. The truth was also on Zoe’s face, but can Carter see it? Does he want to listen to his best friend, Ridge?
Haven’t you ever been so infatuated that you didn’t ackowledge a truth staring right back at you?
In the other major storyline, Hope, Liam, Finn all want to know more than Steffy the truth about Steffy. Thanks to new technology and persevering style of Steffy, Dr. Campbell will be able to tell the truth to the foursome, after which we wiill see who can “handle the truth.”
Instead of helping her sister try to find a job in Los Angeles Zoe Buckingham is more interested in keeping her sister Paris away from Zende Forrester Dominguez.
Ridge and Paris talk about Forrester foundation’s reaffirmation for social justice wherever it may be found or assisted. This includes a possible job for Paris at Forrester, whether Zoe likes it or not.
