Ah, the smell of alcohol induced stupor is in the air, and CBS The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers are bringing you every delicious moment of it.
It’s not hard imagining things going wrong for Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) so early in her self-appointed war with Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer), but that’s exactly what happened. Now, we just have to sit back and wait for the booze to hit the fan.
Brooke let her guard down
It doesn’t matter what movie or show we watch, there’s always that one person that lets their guard down when they shouldn’t. Of course, in those instances it’s usually an innocent mistake or young person trusting those with them. It’s been the source of countless horror stories both fictional and real.
Because of that, one would expect Brooke to pay attention to Quinn, especially after challenging her to bring out her darker self. But nope. Not only did Brooke take a phone call and walk away, giving Quinn the chance to add alcohol to her drink, but she didn’t notice the change in taste when she chugged the bottle, or how Quinn’s eyes kept going to the bottle in her hands.
Maybe Brooke never played poker, or it’ been so long since her alcoholic days that she doesn’t remember what it tastes like? That’s a little farfetched, but a case can be made. Quinn easily added two or more shots worth to her drink, and the strongest juice would be hard pressed to hide that much.
The argument that she was too focused on Quinn to pay attention as she drank doesn’t make sense either, given she’d be hyper aware of a doublecross. At least, we’d hope so. A hunter that goes into the lion’s den and falls asleep rarely wakes up.
This leads to one of two possibilities. Brooke is actually a psychotic genius that Quinn should bow to, or she’s a Darwin Award winner.
Chances are, she recognized something was added, but wanted Quinn to feel like she got the upper hand. This way, she can claim Quinn spiked her drink and cite how she’s been so vigilant. Doing this, and finding a way of convincing Eric Forrester (John McCook) and Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) of that would make her a evil, psychotic genius Quinn would have to respect and bow to. Until Quinn figured out how to submarine her at some point.
The other is that Brooke is why there are warning labels on things. Sure, there can be excuses made that she was too angry to care, or she thought she could handle it and wanted to prove it to Quinn, but is that believable?
Given how she was already showing signs of being intoxicated before she left the house give this argument some credence. For that reason, it seems the most likely. Of course, CBS The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers will stay on top of this so none of us miss a thing.
It makes sense to a certain degree that she simply wasn’t paying attention or didn’t care. She will then battle her demons in the coming weeks and give Thomas a reason to step in. It’d make sense that Brooke would blame Quinn, but given how no one believes her now, that probably won’t change.
Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), on the other hand, will for reasons of his own. More than that, he’ll see an opportunity to make himself indebted to her, and will help her plot against Quinn.
Of course, the fact this could endear him to Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) and help change Brooke’s mind about him. This may be reaching, but so was expecting us to think Brooke drank that much alcohol without noticing it.
Still, two desperate people against one as cunning and conniving as Quinn should be a fair fight, right?
And if it’s not, we’ll have stories to tell of the great Brooke-Thomas massacre of 2020.
We never know when things are going to happen, so keep checking back with CBS The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers for more updates as they come.
More than that, we’d love to hear your theories on what’s going to happen, so drop us a line in the comments.
