B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Taylor looks at a shocked Katie and says she is sorry, but she deserves to know about her husband and Taylor’s daughter. Katie scoffs and says it is not true, it is absurd. She knows Steffy has been throwing herself at Bill, but they are just fantasies. She thinks Taylor has a lot of nerve to come in here and say these things. Taylor assures her that she is not lying; she saw it with her own eyes. Katie tells Taylor that she doesn’t know what motivation Taylor had by coming here, but Steffy is sick and she is the one that Taylor needs to talk to. Steffy tells Bill that what they feel for each other is not wrong, but Katie may not let him go. She kisses him and vows that he will never go back to Katie ever. Bill has to literally push her off of him, fighting for 30 more minutes. He reminds her that he has a board meeting…..and he needs to still tell Katie. He doesn’t like this sneaking around and being deceptive. Amber feels like she is running Marcus out of his home. They’d had such a good time with their child, Rosie, and now he is leaving. Marcus says he is not moving that far away and he will see Rosie every day. Dayzee shows up to escort him out. She tells Marcus that Amber threw her a look and thinks she has a problem with her. Marcus tells her that is okay; he wants to re-kindle a relationship with her. He has a kid now and that might complicate things a bit, but he’s happy that both she and Rosie are in his life. Amber is unhappy to see them kissing.

Steffy calls Liam over to her new digs and wants his opinion. She realizes right away that he knows about her and Bill as he is looking for him. Bill returns to the office. Katie tries to act nonchalant and informs him that Taylor was just there. She launches into a long speech about how Taylor was there to warn her about a torrid affair he was having with Steffy. Bill is silent throughout it all, while Katie continues. Steffy is just a stupid little girl, playing little girl games. He wouldnít throw what they have away for that. She demands that he tell her it isnít true. He wouldnít do that to her after renewing their vows last night For the first time, he turns around and looks at her. Dayzee comes back to Amber’s for something she left, and Amber tells her that she really minds her putting the moves on Rosie’s father. And no matter what Dayzee thinks of her, they have been getting closer and Dayzee can think otherwise if she thinks it is gonna be a slam dunk what with her and Rosie in the picture. Katie realizes from Bill’s face that it is true. Is he telling her that this whole time he has been with Steffy. She rails at him that he must think she is an idiot. She always defends him and what a joke. She has held him up as a paragon of honor. She wants to know how long it has been; Steffy’s mouth on the same mouth that kissed Katie, the same hands that he puts on Katie. She feels like she is gonna be sick. She goes out of control and Bill says he will cancel the board meeting. He turns just in time to see Katie collapse to the floor.
