Berry SwirlBy Naomi Rabinowitz Posted: May 5, 2011
I know that Thomas and Brooke's "berry trip" on B&B hasn't been everyone's cup of tea at this magazine (hi, Devin), but I enjoyed it. I wouldn't want to watch the characters giggle and frolic amidst hallucinated rainbows every day, mind you, but that little bit of camp added some much-needed levity to an otherwise dramatic storyline. Plus, portrayers Katherine Kelly Lang and Adam Gregory clearly had a blast filming those scenes!
Their plane crash also gave the show an excuse to bring all of the characters together. Ridge, Nick and Bill teamed up to find the missing pair, with help from Taylor and Steffy. Meanwhile, everyone from Whip and Jackie to Dayzee and Owen gathered at the Forrester manse to await news on Brooke and Thomas as Stephanie did her best to raise their spirits. How great was it seeing so many characters in one place? I especially enjoyed the scenes where Pam comforted her rival, Donna and one-time enemies, Stephen and Stephanie, made amends. And I LOVED when Brooke and Ridge ran to each other in slow motion when Ridge finally found the survivors on the beach. Was it cliché? Absolutely. But it still made me cheer.
Now that Brooke and Thomas have been rescued, several new storylines are brewing, the biggest being exactly what happened between them on the island. I honestly have no idea — and you know what? I like being surprised.
