Happy 2013, Serial Drama readers! Sorry we've been taking a while to get off the ground with the year's new episodes, but getting back into the swing of things post-holidays is always tricky (plus, co-writing that Best and Worst post drained my brain of so very many of its few remaining cells).
Do any of you have any stories of soapy ways you spent the holidays? I switched a few paternity tests (as is Christmas tradition in my family), but I also did a ridiculous amount of binge-viewing One Life to Live episodes from 2009 (the ones they show back-to-back weekdays on SoapNet, which I am blissfully lucky enough to still get from my cable carrier). Ross! Eli! Jared! Fish! Kyle! Rachel! The Defenestration of Blair Cramer! Dorian's Big Gay Wedding! It's all way too much fun.
Speaking of OLTL, I saw the play Water by the Spoonful tonight (it was this year's Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama) and none other than Frankie Faison, aka Richard Evans aka Destiny's dad/grandpa aka Shaun and Greg's pop, had a major role in it. I highly recommend the production in every other way as well, but Mr. Faison did some really powerful and heartbreaking work. Warmed my heart to see him in action!
But let's get down to the real business of soap blogging! I am sitting down to watch yesterday's The Bold & the Beautiful, so let's check it out and see what that dastardly Bill is up to these days...
Hope's trying to get Liam to consider taking her back and he's all condescending and, "That's enough, Hope!" (Weird, he never said that to Steffy the six hundred times she kissed him while he was with Hope.)
Taylor asks Steffy about the Liam/Hope situation, and Steffy is perfectly confident that Hope is no threat.
Katie and Brooke are calling Bill out for drinking in the hospital waiting room. Katie tells him it's wildly inappropriate. "Wildly?" he says smugly. Bill leaves for a meeting with Justin and Brooke gives Katie a knowing look of some sort.
Oh em gee! Dani and Karen live! They stop by the hospital room to see Caroline. I always forget that she's their daughter since they're so much more interesting than she is.
Steffy tries to call Liam and Alison tells her he's with Hope. Meanwhile, Liam is continuing to insist to Hope that he's moved on and is not interested.
