In Genoa City, it looks like Ben Rayburn has returned and it does not look normal. He is already stalking Abby by staring at her through private spaces and asking her on dates when she is expecting a child through surrogate Mariah while she waits for her heroic husband Phillip “Chance” Chancellor IV. I see a creepy toxic male stalker storyline, as predictable as that would be, upon the show.

In Los Angeles, we learn that you don’t keep all your secrets with one person, especially if that person is also your personal lawyer. Problem is we see is if that personal lawyer doesn’t respect you, you life will end. Negativity pervades The Bold and the Beautiful’s Los Angeles! Lesson: if you own a family company business, make sure your lawyer is well compensated. Though, Eric Forrester learned that lesson and he got wildly embarrassed anyway. Well, at least he and Ridge are not in the L.A. County Jail, probably not as comfortable as Bel Air and Spencer Manor’s views.

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 –

  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?

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’?

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.”

On Friday, we see scenes of characters trying to find the balance between officious intermeddling and vital words of caution.

This issue in part is: how far can you bend the truth until it becomes a lie? Beyond that, when does one’s person’s version of a lie, if not of commission than at least omission, because so potentially toxic to someone you feel it is your duty to protect, give you the moral obligation to make things right, at least in the short term to prevent a tragic long term loss?

Most interesting about the way the characters played these elements out from a creatively written and reality-based script: in the role in which we usually see female characters, we see an outstanding job of Thorsten Kaye as Ridge doing that which we are used to seeing Katherine Kelly Lang as Brooke usually does. It is a refreshing element to watch.
