Defending the writers

I feel dirty defending the writers of the BnB, believe me, hookers feel cleaner than I do, but here goes: The Forrester sibling storyline (the Donna hate?) makes SENSE.  Their attempt to get rid of her MAKES SENSE.  So little else about the show makes sense that when a storyline finally does, it’s like a needle in a haystack.  What makes sense about it?

 –Jared warned them that they were the laughing stock of the industry.

— The FC sales have fallen significantly.

— FC customers have told them that their new line is trashy and not worth buying.

What is it about Eric in particular the ‘sibs’ should be concerned about?

1 – That Eric has a habit of forgetting that the company didn’t rise to the top of the fashion industry on its own, that his children’s lives and legacies are on the line, too.  He’s not throwing only his legacy away just to get naked, he’s throwing away every summer his children worked for the company, nearly all of their adult work experiences, every dream they’ve ever had about their future.  He’s screwing around, literally, with their pasts, their present, their futures, and typical Eric, he’s focused only on his and his young bride’s needs.

2 – That Eric has already thrown the company away once before for the sake of great sex with a younger woman.  He may have forgotten, but his children remember.  He neglected to have Brooke sign a simple waiver and it cost them controlling interests in the company.

Was that the low point?  No, of course not.  We know that Eric was so smitten with his Brooke that he was willing to deprive his chilren and ex-wife the right to reclaim their legacy by hiding the fact that the company wasn’t HIS to lose.  Stephanie legally held controlling interest of the company and Eric stayed silent.  He followed up that act of betrayal by praising Brooke, and rightfully so – she worked hard for FC, for her stewardship of the company and let his children eat crow.

A high point for those of us who were Brooke fans, but still a low for Eric.  If he was YOUR old man, wouldn’t you want to have some sort of say over what he did with the family company?  They’ve given up asking Eric to leave Donna. They’re only asking that given his propensity to go a little ‘third eye blind’ that he leave their company alone.

I think the writers are dead on with this one.
