Um, wouldn’t Caroline be related to Liam, being half-cousins and all? I know GL already went there, but enough with the incestuous like relationships already, B&B!

What’s a half-cousin?

Oh good. Can we fold her into the mess that is Liam-Hope-Steffy-Bill-Thomas-Oliver-whoever? Whatever!

I am pleased to see Karen back and wish she would stay. I think an ongoing sibs relationship (Karen and Bill) would really make things interesting in LA and allow for some new plots that do not involve quickie marriages and over-the-top stunts (mistaken sex, hallucinogenic berries, or gondolas!). If we are bidding adieu to the Marones, then make good use of the Spencers, please.

B&B rep needs to remember that Bill will be her uncle and Liam her cousin.

Karen never had a relationship with Ridge she did with Thorne and Connor Davis. She would be Liam’s cousin. Of course there never was a Bill Spencer Jr. either Don Diamont’s character. He gets these young actors cheap I juat rill my eyes still have not watched in months.
