I don’t know how they did it. BnB writers gave us a ton of characters who disliked Rick and had every reason in the world to want to see him taken down. He’s been handed everything on a silver platter and it’s never been enough for him. The more you give him the more he wants. WOW! It makes PERFECT sense that Rick would be the one who sets his family up for a fall and moves on to help his father’s worst enemy take his family’s company down. We were misdirected when the real villain was under our noses the entire time. If a single plot was enough to earn a show an Emmy, the Emmy clearly belongs to the Bold and the Beautiful.
It’s consistent with the show’s history and makes use of a plot point that many may have forgotten. Rick betrayed his father the MINUTE he got back to town. He hid behind a pathological hatred for Ridge and Stephanie to fault them for the Forresters losing the company. Jackie and nick stole the Forrester Creations based on a lie Jackie concocted! Stephanie NEVER shoved Jackie over the banister in the Forrester home, she only defended herself against Jackie’s physical attack on her. The Forresters were faced with saving Stephanie from prison by selling the company, or kissing her good bye (frankly, I would have kissed her good bye).
Rick handed Nick a list of FC employees who would help him make a success of the company he stole (not that they were successful in saving FC from lousy management). He came back and pimped his mother. He came back and treated his grieving sister like a pawn. He came back and ignored his sister’s child’s death.
Rick is a real sociopath! DE-FREAKIN-LICIOUS!
How much more could Eric have loved him? How much more could his parents have given him? Enough is never enough for our Rick, give him and hand and he’ll choke the life out of you and pick your pockets with it. What a evil bastard. What a diabolical plot. Well done, BnB writers! The best in daytime? No, this plot holds it’s own no matter what genre you place it in.
Give me MORE.
