The No & the Please Don't!
I... don't want to complain. I want to rave because we got three full episodes in a row that had absolutely nothing to do with Hope, Liam, and Steffy. We had a Deacon visit. We got a lot of great moments and great acting from the grownups. We got Heather Tom, just kicking ass and taking names with her stellar thespian skills in her post-pardum depression scenes. And even yesterday, when we did get subjected to some Hope/Steffy scenes, there were other storylines on display as well. You know, like a soap should do.
But there was something about this...
...and the way they lingered just a little too long...
Oh, Afternoon Television Program, please please please don't do this! Please don't make Brooke have an affair with her sister's husband! Was her daughter's husband not enough? Were the husbands of half the other female characters on the show not enough? I'm not saying not to give her a new love story at some point but sweet mercy, not Bill! Can't she just have a little experimental fling with Dani, who must be awfully lonely with her wife out of town for 361 days a year? I mean I know getting dumped by the great love of your life because you answered a text message and did not immediately report this to him might really make you question your own (and the world's) sanity, but this is not the correct response. (Speaking of which, can these people ever learn to actually file marriage-related paperwork? This "oopsie" plot point is starting to be relied on far too often.)
So yeah, in summary: No. Please Don't!
