The show must go on.

Major gratitude to everyone at the Bold and the Beautiful for keeping things going during a chaotic time in American history.

 

This episode features Liam making presumptions that may or may not be true.

As “The Joe” was quick to point out to his new tv room friends, “I would have been able to tell Thomas was kissing a mannequin. Look, she was not moving at all, right? Right? I rest my case.”

Completely Blindsided

We all looked around the room and even with our face coverings our eyes said, “Does this man not know that the nature of the daytime drama is the use of hyperbole in order to drive home a point in a dramatic, memorable way?”

In Los Angeles, the Forrester family is dealing with Thomas’s strange behavior.

The Bold and The Beautiful, December 1, 2020

He hit his head in his apartment, and he has turned to kissing his ideal woman’s mannequin, Hope Logan, who is already married to Liam Spencer III.

On a loud sound audience note, my own mom has been dealing, like everyone alive, with the virus pandemic. In her building, at lunchtime 10-15 people every day socially distance and watch the BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL®  and THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS® (CBS television) together and have coffee, tea, snacks and talks during the ads.

Today I was told that a man, who goes by the nickname of “The Joe” who had spent a lifetime wondering what anyone gained out of watching daytime dramas. The Joe is the retired surgeon of the group, thus when people have medical problems they turn to him. Why is that relevant? Because as the resident emergency doctor and everyday medical expert, he is accustomed to people going into a silent respect for everything he has to say, just in case they should need his help, though he believes it is his sheer brilliance people sit quietly to listen to.

On today’s episode, when Ridge told Thomas that he will “a son is always his father’s little boy, even if he grows up to be 6’5″, 280 pound and plays for the Rams.”  Said The Joe, “I like that – what’s his name [?] – Ridge. All three of my sons are my little boys, even though none of them was half the athlete I was when I was a young man.”

One could hear a collective quiet yet audible groan beneath everyone face-coverings. My mom said, “If the guy, who calls himself ‘The Joe’ continues to show up at CBS daytime-drama time, the post-episode discussions are going to have to be on Zoom.”

 

“to measure up to all that is demanded of him, a man must overestimate his capabilities” – GOETHE

‘Always Remember That You are Always 100% Wrong’

The episode featured two men, Thomas Forrester and Charlie Webber. Both of these men, Thomas, in taking a chance by shipping a controversial package to himself is to us, the viewer, an example in the extreme of Thomas overestimating himself. By contrast, Charlie underestimates himself and does a beautiful thing.

Specifically, Charlie has no reason at all not to check the secret box of Thomas.  The package was not sealed in such a way that Charlie could not have easily checked it.  Upon checking it, he would have a complete hold on Thomas if he had wanted. Thomas would have offered him huge sums of money to not say a thing about it.  But even though he could have been a intermeddling threat, Charlie was the good man.
