Bold and Beautiful fans, I can’t lie, I can’t pretend, #IJustCant. I’m beyond hurt about what happened to CaRidge today. Thorsten Kaye and Linsey Godrey deserve Emmys for their performances today. They both reached down deep, grabbed my heart and yanked it out of my chest. So, “Let’s Talk About Soaps.”
TomCat and a mode flirt as Steffy listens at the door. The model inquires why TomCat hasn’t RSVP’d to her birthday party invitation. She wants her gift to be him in his swimming trunks. TomCat is very receptive to that. Yes, I just bet you are, you spoiled brat, just take, take, take. (Lol, as you can tell, I’m peeved with him).
Steffy unknowingly stabs TomCat in the jugular by ribbing him about the model and saying, “You’re just like dad, if the legends are true about how he broke all the models’ hearts.” YIKES! What did she say that for? He digs into her like she slapped him or something. Steffy wants to know what’s his problem and why is he bashing their dad?????
“Mr. Entitlement TomCat” blurts out that he punched Ridge. Steffy is like WT????? He cries that Ridge was being judgmental, starts laying into him, and calls him an entitled brat. #BoyBye, *eyeroll* #TruthHurts – take SEVERAL seats.
Whining, Mr. Entitlement TomCat says, “Can you imagine if I took everything I wanted to?” When Steffy learns that he slept with Charlotte, the intern, she is LIVID and wants to know what the h*ll he was thinking.
Mr. Entitlement shrugs it off and tells her it’s no big deal, everybody else around here is doing it, and they are two consenting adults. Steffy basically did a playback of what Ridge told him. IDIOT, you can’t go around sleeping with interns, can you say LAWSUIT? Here’s the thing, yesterday, Ridge said ANOTHER lawsuit, so evidently TomCat’s sexual prowess and escapades cost the company money before in Paris. Now, I want to know what that SECRET is, spill the beans, tell it, we ALL want to know.
Steffy stands by what Ridge told TomCat and that he had every right to lecture him. Admittedly, Thomas agrees that he should not have hit Ridge BUTTTTTTTTTTTT, he crossed the line; blah, blah, blah, “Daddy said I’m an immature brat, Daddy said I take any woman I want, Daddy said this, Daddy said that, blah, blah, blah.” #BOYSHUTUP.
Ok, I was so enthralled with the situation with CaRidge that I couldn’t truly enjoy WIVY getting their special moment. Thorsten and Linsey did such a phenomenal job, as well as the other actors. I just wish they would have saved that special moment for another time and purely concentrated on CaRidge.
Don’t get it twisted, WIVY didn’t disappoint. I love the way Wyatt respects and treats Ivy. Ivy thanks Wyatt for supporting her and standing by her through Aly’s death, the video debacle, STEAM’s drama, and losing her job. She tells him that there were plenty of chances to give up on her, but he didn’t. He tells her no, not a chance and they kiss.
Wyatt lets her know that he’s there for her, he’s not his brother. She says she knows. He asks her if she is having a problem with trust because of his brother (Steffy’s lapdawg) Liam. Ivy jokingly says, “Mmm, could it be that he professed his love for me with his fingers crossed behind his back waiting for Steffy to come back.” ROTFL, loving Ivy, she’s so on point with that one. Good riddance to the lapdawg. Ivy admits that Liam made it hard to trust. However, Wyatt is making it easy for her to trust again.
Ivy wants to know what took them so long, they were right in front of each other and didn’t see it. He says it doesn’t matter because they are with each other now.
Although WIVY has been intimate before, today they finally received their love scene. It was explosive and without a shadow of a doubt, sparks were seen all over the world as they expressed themselves together in an intimate way.
Get out the Kleenex because whether you like CaRidge or not, a world of hurt is coming. I happen to love CaRidge, so it’s especially painful for me. Ridge stands apologizing to Caroline because of the vasectomy and his disappointment that although it can be reversed, the likelihood of her conceiving naturally is only about 11%. She’s still holding onto the secret, she tells him that she’s his wife and she meant every word of their vows. Although she wished he had told her before, she understands why he didn’t because he felt that it could be reversed without incident.
With Caroline sitting on the couch and Ridge at the other end in a chair, clasping her stomach, Caroline wishes she could do the same for him, something that she could protect him from, but it’s not an easy fix. She says she can’t handle it on her own and she needs her husband. Lovingly Ridge tells her that he will do anything in the world for her. She’s unsure about that until after he finds out. Ridge looks puzzled.
Ridge wants to know if she’s sick, she says no. He tells her that it can’t be that bad, just tell him. She starts to tell him that it was about the night that he broke up with her. Ridge shares with her that she shouldn’t be upset about it.
She says that night she couldn’t understand why he broke up with her just because she wanted a family. Ridge says that he wanted her life to be fulfilled and he has so many regrets about that night. Caroline says she has so many regrets about that night, and it was the worst night of her life. They both wish they could have done things differently that night.
Caroline explains about taking Pam’s pills and drinking wine. Ridge questions why she took pills and wants to know what that means. Ridge blames himself and, kneeling in a ball, she grabs her head and ask him to stop, that it was not his fault.
My heart, my heart, readers, it’s being torn out of my chest.
Totally emotional, Caroline says with the combination of the pills and the wine—then “he” showed up. SHOCKED, but still loving and supporting, Ridge questions: “he” showed up? Caroline explains that he was just trying to comfort her and that “he” misunderstood.
OMgoodness, what superb acting, we all can feel their pain and Ridge’s confusion about what is going on. It’s evident that the love and chemistry is there in their interaction with one another. Even though that are feet apart from one another and this is a distressful situation, the electric energy they pull from one another draws the viewer in and evokes sympathy.
Ridge asks if he spent the night with her. She turns her head, and although she doesn’t initially speak, the answer is evident by her glare. Oh, my man, Ridge is still calm. How, how, how, can you do that? Oh my, I just want to cry for Ridge.
Caroline tells Ridge that “he” didn’t realize. Ridge asks “realize what? That you were drunk and drugged? He realizes it now.” Finally, Ridge stands up. I have to give it to him; he’s containing this and giving her the opportunity to share with him all the information.
Ridge asks if it was consensual, is that what she really wanted. Caroline, almost in a fetal position on the couch crying, says that she was really out of it and didn’t know. Ridge, hands in pockets and pacing, repeats her, “you didn’t know?” At this point, MOST men would have just started packing her bags. Ridge must really love her, but his calm, yet smoldering anger and demeanor is more than justified.
Ridge wants to know what kind of man is he that he didn’t recognize. Caroline weeping uncontrollably continues to apologize. He tells her not to apologize. He wants to know who “he” is. Trying to buy more time before dropping two atomic bombs on Ridge, Caroline explains that “he” didn’t know about the pills, she let him hold her because she was upset, and it seemed like “he” understood her. #GirlBye, Ridge doesn’t want to hear that, he wants a NAME!!!!! His patience is getting thin now because he’s running his fingers through his hair and holding his head.
She tells Ridge that “he” kissed her. Ridge asks “’he’ kissed you? “You told him no? You didn’t tell him no, did you? Push him away?” She said that she was out of it and that “he” misread everything. “Ridge, I would never, even if we were broken up, I would never.”
Continuing to take the blame, Ridge says it was his fault because he wasn’t here for her and that she should have told him before. An emotional Caroline says she couldn’t because she was ashamed. Ridge assures her that she has no reason to be ashamed.
Ridge sits beside her on the couch, caresses her, and apologizes for not being there for her. Gently, he tells her it’s going to be ok and they are going to get through this.
Her presence is marginalized by the vastness of this situation, Caroline tells Ridge, “THERE’S MORE.”
Almost ready to break, Ridge asks, “What do you mean there’s more?” She says if they could just put this behind them she would, but she can’t. Ridge wants to know if she wants to be with this “guy.” She assures him she doesn’t and that he’s a friend. Ridge quickly lets her know that a friend wouldn’t do that to her.
Exhaling, she says it’s hard to say this, it’s hard to explain, but she has to get through this, things has changed and she has to tell him now. Ridge recognizes that she is stuck and tries prodding it out of her with questions and statements about what has changed. Caroline tells him that he doesn’t understand. Ridge says, “Make me understand.” Caroline follows with “I’m trying.”
Caroline tells him that “he’s” not back in her life because he never left. Ridge continues to question her on who “he” is. For the first time, Ridge’s voice raises an octave and he says, “Tell me.”
Out of Caroline’s mouth, she drops, “THOMAS.” BOOM!!!!!
Confused, hurt, angry, feeling betrayed, Ridge asks, “My son?” Caroline confirms by shaking her head: YES.
What will happen next? Will Thomas tell Steffy EVERYTHING? Will Steffy fire him too? Is Thomas more like Ridge than he wants to admit? What about CaRidge. Is there more to tell, will they be able to survive this? What will Ridge do to Thomas? Is this karma for Ridge, or is Ridge the victim in it all? Tell me what you think?
