Y'all. Yesterday's The Bold & the Beautiful wasn't about Steffy and Liam and Hope! I mean okay, Hope was on the episode, but not talking about Liam or Steffy and therefore far less irritating! It was incredibly exciting.
Okay. They're not awful, they're not great. In fact, they're incredibly bland. It speaks volumes about how sick I am of the usual storyline that I found the featuring of such a milquetoast pair to be a huge relief. Thomas can go listing all the wonderful things about Caroline he wants to, but it doesn't make them true. According to him, she is allegedly "smart, beautiful, funny, and sophisticated yet down to earth." Okay, Thomas. To me so far she's pretty (albeit way too skinny, and can she please get out of that awful yellow dress with the weird blue skeleton-enhancing waistband and matching wristband?) and stands up straight and speaks English. I look forward to this "funny," I do!
One thing we have learned about Caroline is that she's into terrible vampire movies. So I take that back, she is kind of funny. We learned this tidbit from her mother Karen:
And I'm excited to see Karen because admittedly I am looking forward to her upcoming storyline and to Crystal Chappell's arrival. Let's hope (a) Joanna Johnson's appearance as Karen yesterday means this is happening soon and (b) it doesn't just end up a story all about Caroline's issues. More grownups, please! (Yeah, I know. Wishful thinking.)
