The TV MegaSite's Tuesday 4/17/18 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy tells her mother that she is insane; she would never shoot anyone. Taylor replies that Bill may be a lot of things but he is not lying now. She did shoot him. Steffy wants to know if Bill knew. He says yes now after her lunatic mother showed up again and almost tried to again. Steffy finally grasps the situation and says now that means that Liam did not do it. Hope goes to see Liam and asks what happened with Steffy. He was going to tell her that he shot Bill and wondered if that happened. He keeps repeating that he was outside the door when he looked in and saw his dad by the window and he felt nothing, no sorrow. He remembers picking up the gun and shooting him. No one else was there. Hope tells him he is confused still and does not know those are real memories. He has a concussion. She says again she cannot believe anyone as good and kind as he could shoot anyone, much less his father. Steffy chastises her mother and says when Taylor found out about all of this she should have called Steffy. She would have told her the truth. Bill did not take advantage of her. Their sex was consensual. Taylor tells Bill she is so sorry that she almost took his life but she will not be able to deal with it if he presses charges. She is hoping they can let this go. Steffy even asks him to. He cannot see letting her get away with attempted murder, but Steffy says that is exactly what she is asking of him.

Liam tells Hope do not defend him. He is a monster who left his father like he had let the air out of a tire. He saw his father in the hospital and he did that and Hope does not know what will happen the next time something like this happens. Hope says there were circumstances then and she will not believe he is truly that man. He says he does not deserve her friendship. The smart thing for her is to go. Steffy tells Bill that her mother needs help, not prison. Something is wrong and her mother snapped. He says he is still not well and does not know how long that will be. Yes her mother needs help. But she knows how he fights back when someone hurts him. She begs again to please do not implicate her mom and have the police take her away. And Liam needs to know it was not him that shot his dad. Bill says he agrees; Liam needs to know so it is a matter of who and how they are going to tell him. She thanks him. Taylor says she raised her children in this house. She has so many memories and she never wanted violence here. He gets her a drink and has her sit down as she looks a little shaky. She says she would do anything to protect her children as she knows Bill would too. He says yes he loves his son and he would go to hell and back for him. He says he has questions but he doesn’t think this is the time or place to psychoanalyze each other. She agrees that she over-reacted. Steffy pounds on Liam’s door and says it is a matter of life and death. He bursts out that he did just tell Hope and Steffy says but that is wrong. It wasn’t him. Her mother was there and Bill confirmed it. As he keeps saying he remembers it she says he is wrong. He did not shoot anybody.
