Previous Ridge Thread

Holy crap -- was that Patrick or was that Ridge on my (OK, Christy's) TV screen today? The brutally cold, gray, gloomy January day this is just got a shot of warmth, light, and ruggedly handsomeness.

But really, Ridge, as wonderful as it was to see you this year, and it was -- could you please just knock off with the bringing home of annoying, unnecessary Brooke relatives? I can take Steffy. I can't really take Hope, but OK. BUT BOTH OF THEIR PAMPERED, PRIVELEGED ASSES VYING TO HOG ALL THE AIRTIME FROM NOW ON?! FUCK NO!!!! (Sorry for the caps.)

But it is about time Ridge learns his daughter is pregnant -- and who the father is. Just too bad Ridge won't feel all the schadenfreude he should be able to with Bill because of Steffy.

It was good to see Ridge but I just want to scream at the thought of him involved in anything to do with Hope. Gawd, no. Not another woman for Liam to waffle over. Just kill me now. Why is there such a surplus of suitable women for Liam while Ridge is stuck doing nothing but coming up with nice surprises for Brooke??

 

And for that matter why the hell hasn’t Steffy turned to Ridge for comfort? Will he be the last to know that she’s even pregnant???

 

Oh,I thought I was watching an episode of Friends with Katie/Whyatt.  I mean their convo was veering to the point where kept expecting Katie to say but they don’t know that we know that they know and for him to say I couldn’t even if I wanted to.  Only as soon as Whyatt finds out Katie knew Steffy had sex with Bill and Hope is back, their lackluster relation should be kaput and it’ll be endless Liam/Hope/Whyatt reruns only not funny.

Ridge is a loving father,I can't understand why Steffy doesn't seek his comfort.It's

because she thinks he will react as she did about CaRIDGE. It's sad she doesn't

confide in her wonderful dad , he's so compassionate and understanding 

and yet she shuts him out, HER LOSS!

The peek a boo game of who was at a Steffy's door was so frustrating! The one man

I wanted there with her was Ridge! The dad who walked her down the aisle on her

happiest day holding her hand in his and now his loving hands would

embrace her face,wipe away her tears and tell her,things will get better. Why isn't

B&B writing a sweet,heart felt,emotionally packed scene between daughter and

dad...Y???????????????

Why do I suspect that Ridge will be the last to know about Steffy and her problems?  I doubt he knows that she's pregnant, let alone that Liam has left her.  And no doubt, he'll be catching hell anyway for bringing Hope back into the mix, because she's obviously all about Liam (why all these women want him astounds me).  And then there's the issue of Steffy sleeping with Bill, Ridge's sworn enemy.  It's just a hot mess.  And we can add the whiney boys, Rick and Thorne, on their campaign to get rid of Ridge.  Just heap it on.  Blech.  I want Ridge to come out on top for a change.  He's been kicked around too much for too long.

As today's episode progressed I was only anticipated that any moment someone

would tap on Billy boy's shoulder and he would turn around and Ridge's fist would

knock him down!

No Ridge sighting today, so in honor of Martin Luther King Day, I thought I'd post this video... in my imagination, Ridge listened to this song today, too.

Ridge should always wear that black T shirt. He should start a line of Forrester men’s T-shirts. Ridge was the epitome of romance today – he was generous, understanding and compassionate with Brooke in a way I’ve never seen her be with him. Every time Ridge is allowed to be happy it feels like a set up and he's about to be ambushed.

 

Prick and Little Ricky tattling to Daddy about Ridge as if Brooke is some total innocent and Quinn isn’t a homicidal maniac nobody in the family wanted Eric to marry is one of the lamest scenes ever. It was impossible not to picture them sitting in high chairs, they were so childish. And Eric didn’t exactly offer a ringing defense of Ridge to his colluding offspring. I also can’t believe anybody the Forrester family would have the unmitigated gall to complain about any other family member’s work attendance when they all seem to go in only if they feel like it.

The 'epitome of romance', for sure.  Breakfast in bed, compassion for how she might be feeling about the annulment, down on one knee proposal......she doesn't deserve him!  
I tried to enjoy every second of happy Ridge today because I'm sure it won't be long until he's ducking arrows!  If only his happiness could drag on as long as Liam's sad face...[rolleyes]

On a shallow note....
Ridge:  "I need you in bed."
Me:   [thud][thud][thud][thud][thud][thud]

Ditto Anne & Christy!  TK rocked the black tshirt - love!  He was so playful & sweet & utterly romantic - SWOON!  [thud][thud][thud][thud][dream] What a way to treat us to Ridge's return!  Just too bad the anvil is going drop.  But I enjoyed the moment.  TK does so much with so little & makes us all envious of Brooke.  There's something about his bare feet also.  Sorry - shallow end today.  As for tweedle dee & tweedle dum - well they looked like Cinderella's ugly step-sisters to me - sitting there plotting against the magnificent one.  Hubby summed up nuThorne - aside from resembling a weasel now he notes that he resembles Marv the wet bandit in Home Alone - believe his name is Daniel Stern.  They were pathetic!  Not a good look for the brothers grim.

Just when I thought I couldn't love Ridge more...he does that..be the god of

romance! Ridge bringing it to bed... and breakfast too...FANTASTICO!

I know his bliss will be short lived...I predict he will be justly enraged with PIG and

Brooke won't approve of him issuing PIG a knuckle sandwich and that will be the

end of bRIDGE this time around.I say this because she mentioned to Ridge her

marriage to PIG ended because of violence.

I didn't get to watch all of it.   I hope that was a new nightie and not one she has modeled for one of her many men.  I'm just waiting for Brooke to stab him in the back again.  I knew whose side the old goat would be on. [explode]

Another day, another feeling that Ridge’s official engagement with Brooke is at the mercy of events. Like it becoming all about Steffy and Bill, not Ridge. It’s already started out that way what with Brooke being the one to make the announcement to Steffy and enough foreshadowing to need high beams. It just feels as if there soon will be some pieces to be picked up and Thorne will be heading the team. Oh well, at least Ridge and Brooke have gotten some sweet scenes out of it. But color me pessimistic.

Can anybody think of any other reason for Ivy to have had her hair cut and colored so much like Brooke's than Ridge getting caught innocently mistaking her for Brooke by one of the Mean Boys (Thorne/Rick) and being publicly accused of coming on to his non-bio-cousin?

Anyway, I thought it was just ludicrous that Thorne's absence from the engagement announcement today was what stood out to Eric -- not Ridge's happiness.

I hate to sound like a pessimist but I agree with you, Christy, that Ridge is not going to make it to the alter. I have mixed feelings about that. I want him to have what makes him happy, but I've always seen Brooke as the flightiest and  most unreliable person in the whole bunch, so she's no prize.. I guess the truth  is that  I  am the REALLY selfish one, because all I really care about is seeing lots and lots of Thorsten doing his stuff, be it extreme sorrow OR extreme happiness. He's so great at both (and everything in between!).

I hate this build up! B&B having Ridge again say he doesn't care who PIG is with

as long as it's not Logan.I hope he will say rather loudly to his daughter when he

finds out what she did...REALLY, of all people it had to be BILL,the scum of the

earth  who btw happens to be your husband's father!


This story line is taking a descent to decadency ,how can that revolting PIG even

consider being a family with his grandchild's mother????!!!


MOST importantly....RIDGE is GORGEOUS,smiling..I am cherishing these wonderful

moments because as usual,he will be in struggles soon!

Blonde is NOT her at all,Ivy looks ridiculous! If Ridge does innocently mistaken

her for Brooke...Brooke mistaken Liam for whoever way back when and made out

with him!

I'm sure she would give Ridge a pass to the chagrin of the REAL sons of

Eric,those two,take every opportunity to bring up their lineage.They can't

compete with Ridge on any level ,he is OUTSTANDING  on every count so they cry

to daddy,we're your blood...they are PATHETIC!

I agree. The blonde look on Ivy is horrible.

Brad Bell better not concoct some half assed story about Ridge mistaking Ivy for Brooke and being “caught” in a “compromising” situation by the two cry BABIES. That is just beneath TK/Ridge and I would like to think that TK has some creative license/say about his character and story lines.

Note to Brad Bell: Why don't you reach out to Alicia Minshew. She lives on the East Coast and could fly in with TK and the two of them as a couple could really ignite passion, love, commitment and breathtaking stories on B&B.

After the gut wrenching news that Tommy boy got Caroline pregnant...I think Ridge will take the news of

Steffy and Billy boy with a grain of salt...I hope,for Ridge's sake! The fact of the matter is, Steffy wanted PIG!

Bravo, TK, for putting Ridge through the entire gamut of emotions yesterday! [clap]

From pure elation when he learned of Steffy's pregnancy, to the angst he felt as a parent, not being able to fix her problems, to the seething rage when he learned that it was Bill who is responsible for her pain.  I was exhausted for you! 

So looking forward to watching Ridge get his pound of flesh!  (Hopefully!)

I would love to see Ridge knocking on Bill's office door and waits till he opens it and punches his lights out!

Steffy will probably give Bill a heads up. She is crying because she doesn't regret being with Bill!

TK was amazing yest!  His eyes destroyed me!!  He does not have to utter a sound but so many emotions were present in his expression/eyes.  IDK how he does it!  I was right there in the moment with him completely gripped by the revelation & it was as if I was hearing this news at the same time!  He has such gifts!  [bravo]   TK always delivers!

As I watched those final scenes I was reminded of the crushing angst that Ridge felt when he found out that Thomas was the one who took advantage of Caroline in her similarly distressed state. He must have been reliving those moments, which surely added to his angry, dark and icy stare into the future, via those past, cruel memories. The eyes certainly said it all.
Watch out Bill.

Let's count all the reasons Ridge has ...to smash Bill's face in!

Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!Dumping Ridge in the Persian gulf!

...and the other countless conspiracies!

Too bad Ridge doesn't wear a pinkie ring...that would cause some real damage!

Ridge wasn't detoured from his mission of " total scumbag annihilation "with the

Steffy reveal that" Bill loves me" crap! If anything that infuriated Ridge more,his

daughter is having marital problems and Bill adds confusion to the chaos!

Today just hurt. I want Ridge to beat the tar out of Bill who so has had it coming for years. I don’t want Ridge to lose his relationship with Steffy. Once again Ridge is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t…damned to either accept that his daughter has a thing for Bill & vice versa, or else damned to piss off Steff for beating up Bill because of it.

 

So I don’t understand how Ridge can ever process this shock. I know I’d feel betrayed if I were him. But Steffy already betrayed Ridge months ago when she had the gall to tell Ridge that Bill – the man who tried to kill him – had a “good side.” So I have no problem believing she would have consensual sex with Bill, but I also agree with Ridge that Bill did take advantage of her because she was an emotional mess.  Now Bill sees her as the “love of his life,” but if he truly loved her he wouldn’t have come between her and Liam. Bill only loves himself and Steffy is a fool to defend him to Ridge.

 

Just last week, Ridge tried to make nice with Bill in gratitude for his relationship with Brooke finally getting back on track. Today, I thought Brooke’s grilling of Bill over Liam and Steffy’s breakup was so incongruous – I mean, what’s it to her? And why wouldn’t she just wait until after Ridge talked to Steffy to find out what was going on? This just made it look as if she wanted an excuse to see Bill, and whose side will she be on after tomorrow?

 

But getting back to Ridge and Steffy, they are at a total impasse, and it hurts to see. But I feel it was inevitable. Steffy already put Bill over her husband beginning months ago, so it’s not exactly a stretch to see her putting him over her father. I just feel that no matter what happens, Ridge will end up paying the biggest price.

Doesn't he always pay?  The writing for Ridge is horrendous.  It's like Ridge is continually being chased up a tree and having rocks thrown at him.  No matter what, he's always the bad guy; it's always "Ridge's fault".  It's so frustrating, that if it weren't for the magnificent TK, I would never be watching this dreck with "heros" like Liam and the "irresistible" Brooke.  Just ugh!

Too bad Ridge can't access the footage of that night as we can because if he could,  

it would be abundantly clear that Steffy wanted Bill as much as Bill wanted her!

This daughter has feelings for the man who almost killed her father! Ridge suffered

severe trauma and subsequently nearly lost his identity and career. 

All of Bill's baby mamas wanted to raise the  children away from him and Steffy

sees a good side in that scumbag,REALLY!!!

That is the worst of it, she wants Bill...she is STUPID!

IA with you Katbert & Christy - all of that is true.  Aside from that though we had a marvelous, Emmy reel performance from TK today & he moved me to tears - his voice halting & near tears was so real & haunting.  Once again TK has treated us to his special gifts & taken us along on the journey so I'm just going to enjoy that for now.  I think some of the treatment is always going to be around - it seems his lot to be up a tree dodging stones & villagers with pitchforks.  But TK is masterful & I always know whatever he brings will be the very best & rock me to the core.  Those of you who remember, it was great seeing dark, scary & lethal come out today!  Can't wait for the beatdown - just wish I could hold $Bill for Ridge!

As Ridge marched out the door , I was thinking maybe Steffy was having a

nightmare and finally she was going to wake up and thankfully realized she did the

right thing after all and had thrown Bill OUT of the guest house before they fell in

each others arms(btw.. I didn't see any obstacles on the floor for them to trip,but

anyway,lol)

All that concerns me is Ridge's tears,riveting and heart wrenching,Steffy's

not so much!

Every time Bill opened his mouth he got deeper in shit...Liam blackmailed him

ONLY because he wouldn't resign! Ridge should have him arrested on arson

charges...how much can be shoved under the carpet in the name of a united

family front???!!! 

Bill has sex with Ridge's daughter and somehow it's Ridge's responsibility to help

him get Liam back! 

Word to the unwise"Idiot Bill,instead of getting your jollies that time,why didn't

YOU do just that?

Ridge's one packed punch was so satisfying! It was for the fall off the

helicopter,being beaten up because of a few stolen kisses with Caroline...are you

listening Bill???...KISSES!... and now this...this guy is a menace to society!

Watching Ridge’s rage was such visceral experience I actually had to decompress after watching the show! His wrath almost had a life of its own. I think I gasped a time or two. Nobody does these scenes like TK. One more for the emmy reel!

 

Once again though I got the disturbing feeling that while Ridge owed Bill way more than one punch, he won’t even get the satisfaction that that one punch will really hurt Bill other than physically, because the daughter he loves and wants to protect so much wanted to have sex with the man who tried to kill her father. I don’t think Ridge can face that ghastly fact -- who could?!

That isn’t to say I don’t think Bill took advantage of her mental state, because I do. And it was laughably hypocritical for him to piously claim he wants to work with Ridge to reunite Liam and Steffy for the sake of "our grandchild." I’m so afraid Steffy is going to side with Bill. And Ridge won’t have any place to put his rage.

[bravo] TK!  Another masterpiece!  I'm always swept away by your magnificent portrayal - that one will stay with me a long time.  I was exhausted emotionally when it was over.  Thanks again for your gifts & taking me on this journey.
