B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam is shell-shocked. His dad is telling him that absolutely he did not do it; he did not shoot him. Liam wants to know then who did. Steffy questions her mom and wants to know how she could do something like that. Taylor says she has no excuse. Steffy says she and Bill are the only ones who know and she is going to make sure it stays that way. Taylor says Steffy cannot even go near Bill again. Hope and Maya discuss Hope’s new line and Maya says she cannot be more excited to be part of something so empowering. She hopes Liam is helping her out too. She knows his relationship with Steffy is complicated. Liam tells Bill that he felt he had to hear this from Bill and he feels like now he may be able to breathe again. He feels like Bill may know who did this and is not saying. Bill says that is all behind them now. He could not have gone on the rest of his life thinking his son shot him. And Liam says he could have never forgiven himself. Taylor promises Steffy that she will seek help and see a colleague. She will not say where she is going but she will keep in touch and hope to come back and be an awesome grandmother to Steffy’s little girl right here in this house with Liam. They part with saying they love each other.

Hope rushes in to see Liam and he fills her in that now he knows when he blacked out it was so terrifying and he would believe anything, but now he knows he made it all up and he did not shoot his father. He was prepared to punish himself for the rest of his life but now he knows it wasn’t him. It never added up and he went over to Bill’s and he confirmed it. He could not have done it. She gives him a big hug. So now he does not have to live with that memory for the rest of his life. He can go to sleep tonight knowing he did not shoot his father. She says she always knew that; he does not have a mean bone in his body. He yells that he is free, truly free. He was lost there for a while and he did not think he would get over it but now he is back. They hug again. Bill shows up at Steffy’s. He wants to be sure Taylor is not there and Steffy says no she is leaving town. She is grateful that Bill is not going to press charges. She was not herself; that was not the real Taylor. She will get help and be herself again. Bill laments that he did something for Steffy and now he needs her to do something for him. She asks what. He says Liam gave her annulment papers and he knows she thought Liam would change his mind but that hasn’t happened. He wants her to sign them so all can get on with their lives. He has to go out of town to finish business that he is behind on since her mother put him in the hospital. He is sure if she signs the papers that Liam will move on probably with Hope. That will leave Steffy to find the time so she knows how she feels about Bill. He says he loves her and still wants a life with her. So she needs to give this careful consideration for her mother’s future and for her own.
