Dialogue Neither Bold Nor Beautiful
Even though the storyline is dreadful, I have to celebrate the fact that a television genre exists in which this can be said....
Brooke: She's just really devastated about what happened -- having to watch them get married while she was stuck in a gondola.
I really hate when that happens.
We should start a charity or put out a benefit album to help those who have had to watch their ex-boyfriends get married while they're stuck on a gondola. It's becoming an epidemic and, y'all, we should no longer stand for it!
But really. Someone sat down and wrote that line. Someone else memorized and delivered that line. It's a beautiful world, people.
The other line of the day? Came from Katie, and got a giant laugh from me.
Katie: Liam is an amazing person!
Oh my lord, they slay me. I assume this was intended for comedic purposes, yes? Because Liam Spencer is a wretched man who no woman should want to get near. He cheated on his fiancée with her sort-of-half-sister by making out with said sort-of-half-sister about nine times during the few-weeks-long engagement. When she caught him and broke off the engagement (though he didn't know why), he was so heartbroken that within ten minutes he'd turned around and proposed to the sort-of-half-sister using the original fiancée's ring. And then married her THE VERY NEXT DAY! What a spineless, wishy-washy douche.
Not that it wasn't fun to watch Hope's misery, mind you. If she had shown a little insecurity, a little vulnerability, a little "I'm going to fight for him but I'm not sure it's going to work" -- anything other than the smug certainty she displayed -- I may have been able to muster up an ounce of compassion. Instead? Just glee. That glee would have been a lot more satisfying, though, if the payoff to her misery hadn't been the joy and smug satisfaction of Steffy, who really is just some sort of sinister weirdo at this point. I'd almost pity her if I believed she scammed Liam the way she did because she really loved this man or had a sincere bone in her body. I so look forward to Liam learning about his father's and his new wife's machinations and what a pathetic chump he is.
I'd say, "Hooray! We got scenes between Eric and Stephanie yesterday so maybe we'll actually get a new storyline any second now!" but I've been fooled that way before.
Aspen was beautiful, and I can only regret that not one of the three of those morons fell off that damn mountain.
