In Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful produced such an old-school cliffhanging episode for Monday that all hats go off to the writing team!  Two people called me and asked, “What dog you really think us going to happen?” Not texts — actual phone calls. Five major storylines, all strong leaves the ‘what will Ridge do?’ issue as the most exciting and important.

In Genoa City Wisconsin on the Young and the Restless, new foundations are made, while Ben “Stitch” Rayburn is starting to creep out a lot of people. Meanwhile, the addition of Ashland and Tara Locke have made Victoria finally shine in her role in the business world.

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.

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.

People wonder, “Is there such thing as a ‘bro code'”? The interplay among the characters in the Forrester Creations unrequited / misunderstood love rectangle does an excellent exploratrion of this idea.

The action plays out something like: Paris loves Carter who loves Zoe, but Zoe loves Zende? The characters are trying to work this out. At many levels, most interesting dynamics and an excellent energy from all are displayed.
