It's been a while! Which is weak on my part since I have been watching B&B (though let's not even talk about Nashville, the state of that show is a sore subject). So what the heck, shall we take a look at today's episode?
When we left off yesterday, Ridge decided that Brooke was born yesterday and tried to make her believe he'd gotten his vasectomy reversed after all. Thankfully, she is not buying it for one second.
Caroline looks very nervous when Pam tells her she's already told Brooke about the pregnancy.
Wyatt and Ivy eat each other's faces again.
It's amazing that Steffy's lip color matches the shade of her dress exactly.
I find this highly impressive. Lip color lasts no longer than half my morning commute on me, so I've never aimed for such coordination. A fantasy only!
Charlie and Pam express bafflement about Brooke's shock upon hearing of Caroline's pregnancy, which is interesting since yesterday's scriptwriter had them thinking that made perfect sense because of Ridge and Brooke's history.
Ivy and Wyatt continue to discuss Ivy's near-brush with the horror of lingerie modeling. Do we feel like Ivy and Wyatt have ever gone out on a date? They moved from non-couple to virtually-living-together-and-nesting couple overnight. On the other hand, not many people on this show ever go on dates outside the home or office. Going on location is in the budget! A restaurant set rarely is. Wyatt's doing a strip show for Ivy in this scene, of course, so they couldn't be in public. EXCEPT THEY'RE AT WORK.
Here's basically the gist of it:
Charlie and Pam walk in so that Pam can deliver some lemon bars since that is her only personality trait (other than overhearing/oversharing) and despite having an actress the caliber of Alley Mills on the show they've just basically given up on giving her anything new to do.
Caroline is flipping through photos on her phone of her wedding to Ridge, while he's off lying a lot to Brooke. Badly, I might add. He's obnoxiously defensive for a while and then it finally occurs to him that that's not the best way to play it, so he appeals to her bleeding heart by talking about how surprised he is too and how "maybe it's [his] time now" like this is The Goonies or something. I imagine she, as a woman he's married as many times as Caroline is years old and who's borne his most recent invisible child, is delighted to hear this!
