The Bold and the Beautiful: September 11 Live Thoughts
The Bold and the Beautiful: September 11 Live Thoughts
The Bold and the Beautiful begins with Brooke having flashbacks about her attack again.  I suppose that since the wedding storyline is done, we can now go back to the only other available storyline here.  Ridge has hired a private investigator to track down the accomplice that Andy alluded to before he got fried.

Katie is at Stephanie's house at Stephanie's request.  Old Stephanie wants to thank Katie for interfering with Donna's and Thorne's wedding.  Katie, who rocks by the way, bitches that she did it for Donna's sake but she's not going to stand by and listen to Stephanie tongue-lash her sisters.  We and Katie find out that Stephanie really called Katie over so that she can get to scoop on Brooke.  Because, you see, now that she doesn't have to worry about Donna, she has time to go back to Brooke.

I'm totally with Katie here.  Stephanie claims that Brooke is manipulating Ridge.  She says that Brooke is just using the children as a pawn to keep Ridge tied to her.

Stephanie calls Ridge on his cell.  The two bicker.  I'm proud of Ridge telling her to butt out, but then Stephanie retorts that he has to think of Ashley as well.  Ridge hangs up on her, and she lets out a bellow of frustration.

Ridge remembers that the bartender at Cafe Russe still has Andy's cellphone.  Maybe he's not as dumb as I thought!  He realizes that the accomplice's phone number might be in the phone.

Katie really does rock.  She wearing a very pretty floral silk dress with a pink sash around the waist.  But more importantly, she is not afraid to snark at Stephanie.  Stephanie says that Brooke is interfering with Ridge and Ashley, who belong together.  Katie says, "Isn't that just wishful thinking, Stephanie?" with a smirk.

After the break, Katie approaches Felicia for help in creating peace between their two families.  Katie warns Felicia that her mother is out of control.  Felicia is also looking stunning, in a blue, strappy number. The Bold and the Beautiful mostly dresses their characters in glam dresses, with the one glaring exception of Stephanie.  Today, she is wearing a dark teal blue pantsuit.  Her pants, however, are too short for her and they reveal too much of her sensible old-lady black shoes.  She's dressed like an old man who lives in a Miami retirement home.

Ridge is at the Cafe Russe.  The bartender has the cellphone and he gives it to Ridge, but the battery is dead.  Ridge's PI is also there and happens to have the exact same phone and a spare battery in his car.  The PI retrieves the battery and success!  The phone turns on.  Naturally, we'll have to wait for the next episode or longer of The Bold and the Beautiful to find out what happens.
