B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Justin asks Donna how she could leave him like that years ago; just disappear without a word. She offers that she is sorry, but that was a lifetime ago. He wants to catch up on her past activities and life. He assures her that he loves the business world so doesn’t miss basketball. And he was one of those guys that perhaps wasn’t supposed to have children. Stephanie looks for Ridge, but finds Eric instead. He tells her that he has some news for her – he is adopting Marcus. She’s shocked. She likes Marcus, but he is a grown man now and already has an adopted family and Marcus is already mentioned in Eric’s will so this seems a little unnecessary. Katie finds Marcus playing basketball on the rooftop. He challenges her to a few shots. He tells her the most incredible thing just happened; he found his father. She’s astonished to find out when he admits it is Eric. Marcus goes by the office to see Donna and she introduces him to Justin Barber, an old friend. Donna looks uneasy. She is jumpy later when Katie walks in. She explains that she just saw Justin and she did not tell him about Marcus. Now she is having doubts if she did the right thing. Four little words and she could change both Marcus and Justin’s world…plus Eric now that he wants to adopt Marcus. Katie advises her to just drop this. If Marcus wanted to know about his father then he would ask.

Stephanie plays the devil’s advocate and offers her concern for the children’s sake if Eric goes through with this adoption. When Eric leaves, Stephanie stands there feeling strange. She acts like she is dizzy, her arm is numb but she finally moves it and starts to walk out. Justin looks up the Forrester’s on his laptop….particularly Donna. When he sees that Marcus is Donna’s son, the realization hits him that Marcus could be his son. Donna tells Katie that she must do what is best for Marcus and not tell Justin the truth.
