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.

Correction I just roll my eyes at Brad Bell’s stuff but other people seem to enjoy it!

3 people let go for 1 newcomer. Fair enough.

In addition, Josh Swickard (Chase), Harrison’s other on-screen son told Soap Opera Digest on Gregory’s exit, “Sometimes when you’re working on a show like this and someone plays your dad, it spills over. He really felt like a father figure to me in so many ways. Still does. He’s such a good human being. He’s been around the block in life, in Hollywood, and then some, and he’s just a wealth of knowledge. And he’s a humble human being.”
