The TV MegaSite's Monday 12/10/18 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge tells Brooke that it was a one time thing and Taylor is remorseful that she shot Bill so they should just let it go. Brooke goes on that she knows he feels protective of Taylor being the mother of his children. She hopes Taylor never snaps again but there is that chance. They both need to watch out for her. Hope tells Liam that considering what Taylor did to Bill that she could now turn on Brooke for knowing the truth so they can all be concerned. She hates to be suspicious. She puts the seeds in his head that for now she would feel better if Taylor was not left alone with Kelly. Liam has doubts too but he tries to remind himself that she knows she did wrong and she is getting help for her mental health. Taylor keeps telling Steffy that she is fine so just go and mingle and enjoy her party. Zoe points out to her dad that he is spending a lot of time with Dr. Hayes. He pretends he did not notice how attractive she is, just how accomplished (and don’t forget rich Reese) she is. When Taylor turns her back and Steffy notices a glass of wine that Taylor has had she texts her dad to please come over, it is important. Reese asks his daughter what can she tell him about Brooke Logan. She finds a photo and shows him and wonders why he wants to know. He says just trying to place names with faces.

Taylor is surprised when Ridge shows up and Steffy admits she saw her staring at the glass of wine and knew she was tempted. They both just want to be there for her. Taylor breaks down and cries that she knows everyone is worried about her. Perhaps it is all her fault. She says she does not hate Ridge but it is true that he was not always there when he was with Brooke years ago and she had to hold the family together. Hope asks her mom how she left things with Taylor. She says for now she will not say anything but she will be on the look out to protect anyone she loves, especially Hope. Taylor spouts that maybe all their problems in the family starts with her. She used to be a confident woman but she is not any more. Her emotions are all over the place and she does not know how she got to this point. She keeps saying that she shot a man, unbelievable. But Ridge sweeps it under the rug and says she was upset. She really is a kind, wonderful woman. Steffy goes in and gets Kelly and puts her in Taylor’s arms.
