B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy asks Bill what is going to happen to them. He huffs that he told her; he is going to be there for his wife. All he can think about now is his wife getting well and Katie needs him to get well. He’s sorry, but that’s the way it has to be. He explains that this is an extraordinary situation and he can’t even tell her when he will see Steffy next, but nothing he told her about their future is a lie. She tries to stop him when he has to go back to the hospital. He tells her not to make this any harder than it already is. She finally says she loves him even more that he wants to do the right thing about Katie. Katie unhooks the wires and tubes, spots a coat left on the table in her room and puts it on. She gets her belongings with iPhone and calls for a cab. Taylor reveals to Ridge that she knew about Steffy pursuing Bill for some time….but she thought it was merely a crush and that she would not act on it and certainly Bill wouldn’t since he was a happily married man. She tells both Ridge and Brooke that she did not approve of this and that is why she went to see Katie and told her. Ridge realizes Steffy is going to be heartbroken. Brooke says it is exactly what she deserves. Katie suddenly shows up at Steffy’s. Steffy is concerned and asks her to sit down. Katie sits down, says she is okay. She just wanted Steffy to know that Bill is not going to leave her, and he will never step foot in this place again. Steffy opines that she is sorry that Katie had a heart attack and that all of this happened, but what Katie just said was not the impression she got from Bill.

Ridge tells Taylor and Brooke there is no use in assigning blame here. It is up to them to act as responsible parents. Brooke lashes out that Steffy always wants what she wants when she wants it and it’s up to them as her parents to say no. Ridge can’t stand the thought of that man’s hands on his daughter and how upset she will be when Bill dumps her. Everyone panics when they realizes Katie is not in her room and they have no idea where she is. Katie tells Steffy that she is beautiful so she can understand why Bill would want her, but she also is cold. Steffy says Katie and her sisters are addicted to drama and Bill wants a normal life. She’s disappointed in his decision, of course, but she’s not going to jump out of a window. She can wait. Bill returns to Katie’s room. Katie is not far behind. She confronts Bill that he made promises to her and he also made promises to Steffy. She wants to know the truth. Which one was he lying to?

Y&R Recap Written by Eva

Diane narrates this episode similar to Mary Alice on Desperate Housewives. We discover that everyone who got a text message to meet Diane at the footbridge played a part in her death, because each of the suspects either gave her a bruise on her body or left something behind to place them at the scene of the crime. Phyllis broke a fake nail that the police found after her physical confrontation with Diane. Tucker got a leaf in his hair after Diane pushed him off her when he lunged at her. Nick and Diane struggled over his phone because Diane didn’t want him to call the DA to tell him that she was trying to blackmail the Newman family. Nick also threatened to kill Diane if she did anything else against her family. Adam grabbed Diane’s arm hard enough to leave a mark after their confrontation and Abby fought with Diane so hard that she broke her hotel room key which the police found in Diane’s mouth.

In flashback we discover that in one of the many physical struggles with the suspects Diane dropped her phone, which fell in the bushes and was still on and it may hold the evidence to lead the Police to Diane’s killer
