Yes, I had some initial concerns about The Bold and the Beautiful’s transgender story, and I still stand by them.
I will always think that the way it was introduced, while undoubtedly ‘soapy,’ hit a few problematic spots.
But the scenes with Maya and her parents – oh, my.
I’m nearly tempted to take back my previous words after seeing this scene.
It is, in any case, beautiful work and a beautiful scene.
I hope this Maya, struggling to tie the loose threads of her life together, integrates with the ambitious Maya we knew before.
I’m hoping for a Maya who is flawed and human, but also someone who is NOT to be trifled with!
And her parents are fascinating. Whether they are sincere – or shady – remains to be seen, but hooray to B&B for not making them one-dimensional talk-tos.
