On yesterday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, viewers were subjected to something so unbelievable, it was as though this show had entered the Twilight Zone. For some strange reason, it seemed to be a celebration of the letter ‘B’ without the presence of the muppets to carry it off. ‘B’ is of course for Brooke, Bill and Big Bear. Bill felt compelled to rush up to Big Bear to see Brooke after hearing about Stephanie’s passing. She had been there for him when Katie went off the deep end, and he was determined to ‘be’ there for her now that Stephanie met her untimely demise. In fact, Bill told his sister-in-law that he would always be there for her.
Brooke seemed clearly distressed over losing Stephanie, but Bill assured her Stephanie was still with her. Stephanie had given Brooke a ‘bauble’ (her diamond ring) stating she wanted her to have something that belonged to her. Brooke held the ring and was gazing at it when Bill took it and slid it on to Brooke’s hand next to her existing diamond. Suddenly, he moved in for a hug and the next thing you know, the two of them were kissing. Initially, they both looked shocked that they had just locked lips yet they never had that ‘we can’t go there again’ type of moment. They simply went back for more. Take a look at this CBS video clip from yesterday’s show featuring Bill and Brooke at Big Bear.
Interestingly enough, the previously bonkers Katie seemed to make a full recovery The rain has finally turned to sunshine for this new mother, who is home with the baby waiting to surprise her husband. Katie might end up being the one surprised, especially if Bill brings Brooke back with him from Big Bear. Postpartum depression is a serious illness and the fact that Katie suddenly pulled out of her dark world and is ready to resume her life simply doesn’t make sense.
Yes, it was a strange day yesterday on this show, but for many, it was hardly surprising. Life goes on for sure on a soap and over and over again, grief seems to pull some sort of trigger that causes people like Brooke to cope in strange ways. Viewers learned a lot about the letter ‘B’ yesterday. Bill being there for Brooke, Big Bear, the bauble, the previously bonkers Katie and her miracle cure, yet life went on before the body of the show’s beloved matriarch was even cold. The letter “B” was certainly predominant in yesterday’s episode but do remember, ‘B’ also stands for Brad Bell. This one had his signature all over it.
Do share your thoughts on the adventures of Brooke and Bill at Big Bear and don’t miss today’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. Big Bird really ought to be a guest on this show.
