Awww, #BoldandBeautiful fans it’s Cliffhanger Friday time and it’s all about recycling. What do you do when you can’t think of anything new? Yassss, recycled love, recycled story lines. Round and round we go. “Let’s Talk About Soaps.”
Well, here we go; Steffy is at the office packing her work from things to take home, when Wyatt arrives. Now I like Wyatt, but here’s my issue here. Ivy just got out of the hospital today with instructions from the doctor not to be left alone, and he ensured the doctor he was going to take care of her. The first time he leaves, Steffy arrives, Ivy is terrified and hits her head and calls Lt. Baker, because Steffy violated the restraining order. Ivy didn’t press the issue for Steffy to be arrested. However, Steffy NEVER thanked her, but continued to push for her to drop it until she left.
Now, help me understand why Wyatt would leave her again and feel the need to go check on Steffy????? Wyatt tells Steffy to give Ivy a chance to recover, and that she has to look at it from Ivy’s point of view. Since Steffy returned from Paris, she has made Ivy’s life a living h*ll, from taking Liam from her, killing Aly, firing Ivy and having her forcibly removed from the building, the electric shock, and now the next day, Ivy falling and a bump on her head, because Steffy violated the restraining order and Ivy was afraid of her.
Steffy thinks she should not have let Liam go over to see Ivy and there is nothing he can do because they are not close any longer.
Meanwhile. over at the Forrester mansion, Papa Avant is stressing that Sasha is in town and is continuously trying to change the subject. Sasha holds a secret over him and he wants her gone, like yesterday. However, Mama Avant, Nicole, Maya and the entire crew is glad to see her.
Speaking of things seen, Zende’s first introduction to Sasha was accidently seeing her in her lingerie as she was changing clothing at FC. Mannnnnnnn, the chemistry between the two was undeniable, and Zende couldn’t keep his eyes off of her, even after Nicole entered the room. Nicole was invisible.
After months of waiting, Zende is being understanding of Nicole’s quest to be the surrogate for RAYA, although he initially protested. The magical night finally arrived for ZENCOLE. Zende has his room, which is off from the others.—on fleek for Mac status. They are both hot and heavy. and they both want their first time to be special. The passionate kissing ensues and Zende closes in, unbuttoning one of Nicole’s button at a time and sprinkling kisses on Nicole’s body. As he reaches her stomach and is ready to pour out more kisses from his fountain of love on her— BAM!!! BABY BLOCK!!! REALITY!!! Zende FREEZES. After starring back and forth at each other and a long awkward silence, Zende wants to try again. However, Nicole is hurt and doesn’t want to. She dashes downstairs where Papa and Mama Avant, RAYA, and Sasha are. Everyone stares at Nicole, wanting to know what is wrong. REALLY?????
Zende is standing there with his shirt opening and exciting viewers with his six pack abs glistening and Nicole with herself all tussled and undone. It’s obvious what’s wrong. Everyone scatters like fleas. Nicole is upset with Zende and he returns to his room.
Hold up right here. A lot of people are throwing some major shade at Zende. However, one must remember that Nicole is carrying his UNCLE’s baby, AND burned in his eyes are visions of Ms. Sasha “Fierce” in her lingerie. Yes, he loves Nicole, but come on now. Those words from Papa Avant are probably ringing is ears that Nicole will be all blown up like a balloon and REALITY is probably setting in. I’m not hating on him. He’s young, FINE, and drama free. Did I say FINE? I can’t blame him if he drops Nicole like a hot potato. At least he tried.
Nicole goes to her room and Julius wants someone to make sure that she’s all right. However, he can’t pass up the opportunity to say “I told you so,” as he recalls, “I told you the surrogacy was a bad idea.” Rick counters and says that they don’t know that. #BoyBye, you weren’t born yesterday.
Papa Avant says that the baby is impacting ZENCOLE’s relationship, and he hopes RAYA is happy. At this point Sasha exits stage left saying this is a “family matter.”
Nicole returns and Mama wants to know if her baby is ok. But she doesn’t want to talk about it and goes in the kitchen. All present ask if she is all right. She says she is, and asks if her BFF Sasha is gone. Yeap, girl has gone ghost, lol. Rick tells her that she’s left, but that she’s thinking of her.
Alone, Maya says to Nicole she can tell her anything and wants to know what happened. ROTFL! Maya, Maya, Maya. You know what happened, just like everyone in that room. I applaud you for asking, but while you are up in your room with your husband making mad, passionate love, Nicole will be lying between two cold sheets with her and your husband’s baby in her stomach. RIGHT…
Ivy shares with Liam why she’s afraid of Steffy. He tells her it’s coming off as spiteful. Ivy was clearly afraid of Steffy and probably suffering from PTSD due to being pushed into a live electrical panel. I want to pause right here. It is evident that #BoldandBeautiful doesn’t know how to deal with mental issues. Aly was the first missed opportunity to deal with it, and again now Ivy. However, it’s being brushed off as “being spiteful.”
Now, it’s no secret I love my girl, Ivy. But right about now she’s getting on my LAST nerve. She says that after the accident, she realized that life is short and she wants another chance with Liam. #GirlBye, #JustBye.
It’s obvious that my girl, Ivy, picked up a few “playa” lines from Thomas because she was sounding just like him when breaking it down to Liam about Steffy.
Liam tells her that he’s moved on, and he doesn’t know who she is anymore. She agrees to drop the restraining order and reminds him that their values were what brought them together. MY GOODNESS, Ivy, get a clue! This is your boyfriend’s brother. I’m disgusted with how the writers are changing Ivy up like this. I just want to puke.
My girl Sasha “Fierce” was on a mission, and did a room check on Zende. Knock, knock, knock. Zende opens the door. When he sees Sasha, he wants to know what she wants. WOW, WHY are all these people so stupid? Ms. Sasha “Fierce” just saw you get dissed by your girlfriend, you saw her in her lingerie, and she wasn’t shy about it. Now, she’s standing at your door with an “itsy bity romper” that is showing her butt cheeks, instead of being with her BFF. What do you think she wants? She convinces him that “she’s here for him” (yeap, that’s true, lol) and she’s not leaving until he talks to her. He’s conflicted and upset with himself because of what happened. Ms. “Fierce” assures him that he’s justified in his feeling. She offers that she just arrived in town, and that she can be “the friend” that he needs.
Hallo, ZENCOLE is cute, it’s that “puppy love cute.” On the flip side of the coin, Sasha is “Fierce” and she and Zende can bring the “FIRE.”
Now back to this recycled relationship. Ivy kisses Liam. Correction: she initiated the kiss, and Liam reciprocated.
Well #BoldandBeautiful fans what will happen next? Nicole is otherwise occupied physically for the next 7 months—can Zende get past that? Or will Ms. Sasha “Fierce” get what she wants, since Zende is in dire straits? Will Liam and Ivy rekindle their relationship and what will Steffy and Wyatt do? You tell me.
P.S. I will be on hiatus for the next couple weeks, so I want to wish everyone Happy Holidays. Be safe, forgive, and love. Until next year.
