This is the week long-suffering throngs of fan factions of HOTT (Hope and Wyatt) and LOPE (Liam and Hope), will finally find our which man Hope chose to tie the knot with in the spectacular remote sequence shot in Paris, France with the Eiffel Tower the epicenter of the story on CBS The Bold and the Beautiful!

Will Hope (Kim Matula) chose the sexy and assured Wyatt (Darin Brooks)?  Or,  will she chose puppy-dog and long time love Liam (Scott Clifton)?  But as with any good soap the angst will continue no matter what goes down becomes, according to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, B&B is using the story of the film An Affair to Remember to jump start this arc of the story which airs today.

And here is what is going to go down according to TVG: “Hope agrees to marry Liam if he meets her at the Eiffel Tower but he stops along the way to save a damsel in distress and doesn’t show up at the appointed hour.  Hope waits a bit, but then heads off to Monaco with Wyatt and they say “I do” on a spectacular yacht in the Monte Carlo harbor.”

The other issue is crazy mama bear Quinn (Rena Sofer), who will be the one responsible for Liam’s being late to meet Hope in Paris. “Only the audience knows that,” says  Kim Matula, “but it could come out, like if Quinn has a couple of cocktails and opens her big mouth.” 

So it looks like a timing issue will prevent Hope and Liam from finally getting together!  So, how do you feel about this?  Do you want Hope and Wyatt together?  Or were you rooting for Liam and Hope?  What do you think of this Paris preview of what will go down in Hope’s choice of her “Man For the Future”?   Will Hope spend the next year pining away for Liam?  Weigh-in!

How about this:

As Wyatt and Hope are about to say “I do”, Liam arrives with Quinn quickly behind him and then Ally detonates a bomb on board the yacht.

Triangle solved and finally put out of its misery.

Why anyone cares who this self absorbed little twit ends up with is beyond me at this point, she is making her mothers choices in men seem normal.

Rob…Jenny is RIGHT ON!!!!! Dude…you SHOULD write for B&B!!!!! Bro…YOU TRULY ROCK!!!!!! Also…a few ideas:
1. Let Deacon and Quinn HOOK-UP TOGETHER…COUPLING AND ALL!!!!!
2. FINALLY put Ridge and Katie back together again…DUH!!!!!
3. Most of all, have BOTH Brooke and Hope each take PERMANENT vacations…N-E-V-E-R to be seen or heard from again. BOTH GOOD RIDDANCE AND SAYONARA!!!!!!

I’m just saying…..

Peace.

The character of Hope is a very immature young woman she should be sent off to college and learn something. This show has no balance what so ever and to waste Rena Sofer/Quinn on a storyline like this is very sad. I predicted as such I think we have major ego problems on that set. All roads lead to Hope or Brooke and all the location sets will not do it for me.

Ive been watching for several months and it is too much with Brooke and Hope and their love triangles…soon Brooke and Hope will probably fall for the same man and be in a triangle together…Quinn is my favorite and you are right about her being wasted…

I want Wyatt and Hope together myself, but am getting rather bored with the whole thing. I totally agree with you about Rena. Why are they writing this phenomenal actress into a corner they can’t redeem her from? I was totally stoked to find out she was coming on board. They started her as a strong independent woman that I really liked and then in true B & B style they turned her into a total nut job. They turn every female character on this soap into a victim, extremely promiscuous, or a total whack job. What does B &… Read more »

Maybe Hope can’t decide which man she wants because she’s really a lesbian.

Seriously. I am done watching this joke if that disgusting Wyatt ends up with hope. He makes me vomit every time he is on screen. That laugh of his is so annoying. This story is beyond ridiculous and boring to boot. What rational woman flip flops like this? Guess they r going to turn hope into the new Brooke. A woman that can’t live without a peninsula. Just turns my stomach.

And there you have it folks….exhibit A for why soaps are now largely irrelevant fairy tales. We are to believe that a modern career woman in her very early 20’s is so needy and desperate and unsure of herself…that she would be willing to marry one of two brothers? Either one will do?? This isnt a 1950’s Mormon colony or Amish farm!! This kind of writing is so thin and meaningless. And what brothers would be content to marry a girl knowing that she would indecisively marry either one of them??? Unreal!!

Lets be fair Johnny– Brad Bell only knows how to write one story– perhaps Daddy Bell only taught him one before heading to the great soap in the sky– the whole is show is just about love triangles– and unfortunately the cast is so small, that all the triangles end up involving family members— but this all Brad knows to write– and if you watch this show daily it will drive you nuts– best bet– do what I do, only watch once or twice a week– it is bit like reading a trashy romance novels– a little bit is a… Read more »

One of the things I really liked about Hope originally was that she tried so hard to NOT be like her mother when it came to men. Fast forward a few years and now it seems the writers are turning her into ‘Brooke of the Future’. Who runs off and marries a guy because another is a few minutes late? So silly!

Linda Weems

so silly is right she should have waited and talked to Liam but no I can’t stand the sight of Wyatt he knew his Mother was around the entire time and what she is capable of I thought Hope was smart enough to see thru all this mess

Does it even matter who she marries, she’s only going to waffle back and forth between the two like she’s doing now. They’ve done this whole Liam and Hope obstacles to marriage so much, it’s run its course.

Should we care? If the wedding would provide resolution to a long story or give the characters new plots, I might be excited. It seems B&B stages a wedding among the same tight circle every few weeks. The ceremony and vows don’t seem to matter. The prize has no value. Hope had had how many weddings or near-weddings now? As many as her mother! Just dumb lazy storytelling. All that is missing is Steffy but we have Aly and Ivy around to continue this tiring rondelay.

This show needs a makeover. Have Ally get the idea of reviving Spectra Fashions with Thorne as CEO, Thomas as head designer and Steffi in charge of marketing! Have Taylor back and be right there next to the one man that puts her children first. Ally should approach a frustrated Caroline, who lost her importance with Forester Creations due to Ridge’s return, and have her sabotage the Foresters. This would create great drama for all….Ridge and Brooke could even reunite and go against Thorne and the rest of that clan! 😉 anyone like these ideas??

Makes sense – I was wondering why she left – she probably couldn’t stand being part of the threesome (H-W-L) show either.

I cannot tolerate the thought of Hope marrying anyone other than Liam. Lying, double-talking, conniving Wyatt and his mom need to be shipped off to Siberia. I haven’t watched since Momma Wyatt pushed the girl into the brink to stall Liam from getting to Hope and I won’t waste my time any more. Liam should be with Hope. Ridge should be with Brooke. Bill should be with Katie. AND, Wyatt and his mom should be shown the road.

I’m soooo HAPPY Liam didn not make it… I mean do they really expect us to forget the hell Liam put her thro w Steffy? Wyatt has been such a breath of fresh air in this ongoing Liam/Hope saga. I haven’t rooted for “Lope” in a very long time! Hope changed when she met Wyatt & IMO for the better!!! I really want to see Wyatt & Hope together for the long haul & I hope them getting married is 100% true. Don’t ruin this B&B, please don’t make this story duplicate the Liam/Steffy/Hope triangle. Let Hope actually be happy… Read more »

Quinn is the woman that Wyatt keeps whining to…Quinn is the woman that has an unhealthy relarionship with her son…(And believe me you can’t tell me Wyatt ain’t taking advantage of the fact that his whacko mama will come and step in because he knows deep down he doesnt have a chance with Hope unless Quinn being devious and manipulative aren’t involved!!)…Quinn is the one who keeps interfering in her son’s life…Quinn is the reason that each and everytime Wyatt was able to get with Hope!

And agreed.. If Wyatt & Hope get married, let it be them for a while (and not talking a week or even a month). This storyline NEEDS to end. Keep her with Wyatt!

I was hoping it would be a new story line and they actually would be married and stay married for awhile. I like wyatt but his mother would deter me!! Ugh How can somebody just rebound like that? I hate the way they keep doing the same thing over and over. They stopped Brooke from marrying Bill which was a great romance. Let Katie have that wimp of a ridge. Ridge has made Brooks life miserable and Bill really cares about her. Give her a chance at Love. Ridge wants his brooke and Katie too. He is a loser and… Read more »

I think Hope and Liam should get married. They need to stop pulling the plot of Brooke, Ridge and Taylor. Just let them have a happy life and let Wyatt move on with somebody else.

Him and his mother should disappear off the show permanently and they just might once it is found out that his mother killed that guy in Mexico so that he lame son could get the diamond and it may be really be his.

So we all know hope said yes and married hope (which I’m happy about BTW). Now what I would like to see next is maybe Wyatt gets charged with the death because of false evidence or something and it tests hope and Wyatt’s relationship and because of it Liam tries to win hope back. I’m not sure where Ivy would fit into it maybe she fights for liam or maybe she falls for Wyatt and tries to make him think hope cheated on him with liam, now that would be something I would look forward too.

absolutely do not like hope with Wyatt he is as conniving as his mother hope they find out real soon she never went to rehab. so disappointed Hope and Liam didn’t get together they belong together

Aug 18 episode – if that is what you want to call it – I think it would be better titled the Hope & Wyatt & Liam music video – – – – When will this end – What is going on in the fashion world – Where are Ridge & Katie – Where are the writers and are their fingers broke? Please, please stop this 3 way madness. Liam tell her to take a hike! Are Hope and Wyatt going to continue to be the entire show? I can watch a whole episode in 5 minutes and that won’t… Read more »

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
