DE­CI­SIONS, DE­CI­SIONS!

CBS Soaps In Depth - - WE SPEAK OUT! -

We weren’t sure we’d be able to watch THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’S Brooke wa­ver in her com­mit­ment to yet an­other mar­riage after all these years, but the show has done a re­ally fan­tas­tic job of set­ting the stage for why she might come to feel so torn be­tween her “Des­tiny,” Ridge, and her “Stal­lion,” Bill. This is not the same Brooke from ear­lier years on the show, the one who tended to let her li­bido lead the way in her life; rather, this is a

woman who’s des­per­ately tried to pla­cate an in­creas­ingly ar­ro­gant and con­de­scend­ing spouse, even as her heart has gone out to an ex- lover who claims ( and in many ways has proven) he’s a re­formed man. Yes, it can some-

times feel comic when you stop to count Brooke’s many re­la­tion­ship fails, but when her ro­man­tic woes are sup­ported by a well-con­structed sto­ry­line that builds over time, we’re happy to go along for the ride.
