I know I’ve said this, like, a million times, but Wyatt and Steffy SO need to meet. They would have the most deliciously complex relationship.
Wyatt has just found out from Katie that:
1) Bill once had an affair with Steffy (twice, actually, but who’s counting?).
2) That Bill so desperately wanted Steffy to be a Spencer he pretty much forced her and Liam together (negligible truth, but whatever).
As we know, Wyatt is pretty firmly Team Hope, but as we also know, they are really not an especially good match. Of the women on the show right now, I would dearly love it if Wyatt and Katie hooked up (OMG IMAGINE HOW THAT WOULD DRIVE EVERYONE INSANE), but him and Steffy? It could be so perfect.
Because he would try and hate her - hate her because of Hope, and because of what Katie said, and because she is officially Bill-approved and one of the things that is appealing about Hope is that she is not. But they are both SO clever and they could bond over their daddy issues and they could team up to break Hope and Liam up but fall in love themselves, and I JUST CAN’T GET OVER HOW AWESOME IT WOULD BE.
So once again, Rick and Caroline have won a Forrester Fashion Dance Off (tm). Their rebranded Hope for the Future line, HFTF, was apparently a smashing success.
Yes, it’s called HFTF. Let that sink in for a minute.
Anyway, they made it all successful by mobilising new markets - basically, their audience was made up of what appeared to be sheiks. So if this isn’t a subtle lead-in to a storyline where Prince Omar’s son is introduced, I will be super bummed.
And we all know Omar’s son would totes come sailing in with Phoebe on his arm, right? RIGHT?!
So overall, while Brooke has been a huge dick in this whole Bill/Katie/Brooke affair, I’ve been of the opinion that Bill has been a bigger dick. King of the dicks, in fact. Brooke at least has been paying some lip service to Katie’s feelings, while Bill hasn’t given a shit.
But then Brooke said this to Katie:
"I stopped expecting you to take responsibility for your life a long time ago."
And she accused Katie of abusing Bill, which… holy fuck, I can’t even.
So now I can’t decide which one of them is being a bigger dick in this whole affair. What do you think?
I know I criticise a lot about the writing on Bold (and let’s face it, they totally need to hire me) but I am loving the relationship between Liam and Wyatt. They seem to understand each other perfectly - consider these two quotes:
“It’s the boundaries thing. I don’t think he respects boundaries.” (Liam on Wyatt)
“He doesn’t deserve the ride he’s getting at Spencer.” (Wyatt on Liam)
Both of those are 100% dead-on accurate. I am so excited to see the way their relationship develops, especially given Wyatt’s similarity to Bill.
But you know what the least interesting part of their relationship is?
