The Magnanimous & the Procrastinating
I have to admit I wasn't even a little embarrassed watching yesterday's episode of The Bold & the Beautiful. Not even a little! Sure, it was a little silly that it basically had the same ending as the day before (Brooke's about to see the video of Liam and Steffy! I can't have been the only one who chuckled at Brooke's ethical qualms with watching it, right?) and, sure, it was all about the same three characters it always is. It's a distinct possibility that I just have Stockholm Syndrome.
Can I mention, though, how irked I am that Bill and Katie are having a boy? Look at that damn smirk.
He can raise another little misogynist now! Yay! He's so happy! I guess it's a good thing he's not having a girl because then he might actually have to learn something about women. That would be terribly emasculating.
To be fair, though, the scenes between Bill and Liam yesterday were actually quite lovely. As were the scenes between Hope and Steffy. I wasn't born yesterday, so I do realize that this detente between Steffy and Hope is only so that everything can blow sky-high when the pre-wedding events come to light and when they start this whole damn triangle over again from the beginning, but I can't help but find it a little delightful to see two people actually evolving and trying to behave a little. (Not that I'm really in a position to judge, as "behaving" really isn't in my wheelhouse.)
I admit I cracked up, though, at Steffy's one little attempt to try to rid herself of the newlyweds...
Hope: Oh god, I loved everything about Italy, the -- the people, the beauty, all that history.
Steffy: Well, you know, maybe you and Liam could live there, start branches of Spencer and Forrester publications.
Ha! If only all three of them would move to Italy, sort this out offscreen for a year, and return to new storylines.
There they were, talking like actual friends! Heartwarming, I tell you! And I guess it doesn't count since they're about to be stepsisters again, but it just made me glad because this show is seriously lacking in the friends department. People's entire social lives are their families (although in fairness, it's tough to break out of that when Dayzee is the only character who's not related to half the cast).
So have we seen the last of Deacon? I'm guessing that we have, but what a lame use of him.
Wait, I was concentrating on enjoying good things while they're on the screen, wasn't I?
