Sex changes everything

In the BnB writers’ zeal to shock fans with the latest piece of schlock storytelling – they’ve managed to change the face of the show forever. Steffy Forrester sleeping with Rick Forrester was an act of unadulterated self-indulgence and pure contempt for anyone who’d ever cared for either of them (onscreen or off). New rule: if you share the same name and were raised in the same family: HANDS OFF! If ”hands off” is the rule -bumping uglies is definitely off the table. The former niece and uncle, raised in a family in which paternities change almost annually, decided to damn the fates and move forward into a sexual relationship.

That one act means that the writers can never undo the show’s biggest retcon ever…making Ridge Forrester (Rick’s once biological brother/Steffy’s father) Massimo Marone’s son and not Eric Forrester’s prized firstborn.

For fans like myself, we’d long suspected that Ridge had to be another man’s child. It was the only thing that made sense of Stephanie’s suffocating love and ”protection”of Ridge to the detriment of her other children. Simply having her exposed for the person of easy virtue she so smugly accuses others of being was enough. It was always possible for the writers to undo the retcon – until now. The writers were so committed to the uncle and his niece having sex that they’ve left no other choice but to keep Ridge biologically tied to a character who no longer exists.

At the same time, Eric and Ridge are still bonded as father as son in their hearts. Both Rick and Ridge call him dad. It’s what makes the act between Rick and Steffy so difficult to understand. It’s hard to believe that the writers chose to permanently alter the fabric of the show for two remarkably worthless characters as Steffy and Rick..

  1. I am telling ya, it is churning in my stomach daily. I am so angry that they put Taylor in scenes with this renegade. It is not funny.

    The storylines are so paradox that one really wonders why so many people aren’t watching AMC.

    And.. this crap is to continue for God knows how long. Brad needs to step down and let his daughter take over. If he thinks that his will is stronger than the viewer’s disgust, he really has to rethink his moves.

    I for one, find that I have reduced my interests to just reading recaps and youTubing when anything good happens.

    The landscape of bnb has definately changed… I am not sure that the show has enough life-preservers to save themselves when the landslide eventually comes.

    Thanks for the blog!

    Outland!

  2. If you’re youtubing the good stuff, that’s great! It means that you’re not spending a lot of time on youtube watching BnB clips because NOTHING good is happening on the show, right now… TOO MUCH Steffy and Rick.. .TOO MUCH crap with the other characters fixated on this pair of wankers!
