B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam realizes Bill has more on his mind that choosing the cover of a magazine. He asks if he wants to talk about it. Then he proceeds to give Bill advise even if he doesn’t want to hear it. Bill shuts him up by saying Steffy is not wrong; he is going back to Katie. Hope tells Steffy that she is not gloating. She just hopes this is a wake-up call for her. She doesn’t know if this is for love or vengeance, but for everyone’s sake, she needs to stay away from Bill. Steffy is aghast that Hope is advising her to stay away from Bill considering her own mother has meddled for years in her own parent’s marriage. This time she is not backing down from the Logan’s. Hope can go tell this to Liam and he can pass it on to his dad. She orders Hope out. Brooke tells Ridge that she is worried about her sister because Katie is hurt about Bill’s involvement with his daughter. Ridge wants to change the subject since that is now in the past. Bill took advantage of his daughter and is still trying to do it by making promises to both women. He’s afraid of what Steffy might do when Bill ultimately lets her down. He stops by to see Steffy who is less than pleased to see him standing there. She confesses that Ridge was right; Bill went back to Katie so everyone thinks she got what she richly deserves for going after a married man. He gives her a big hug.

Steffy cries that she knows Ridge should feel good as he didn’t want her involved with Bill in the first place. He soothes her by saying she is his daughter and when she hurts, he hurts too. She promises she will never get herself in a place like this again, ever! Bill tells Liam that he knows he hurt Steffy and he regrets that. But Katie is his wife and he treated her unfairly too. Liam warned him about not getting too close to Steffy as it would spell trouble and he ignored that. But he can’t have two women and now he has made a re-commitment to Katie and he is going to stick to that, end of story. He hands Liam Steffy’s loft key and says the last person she will want to see right now is him, so for Liam to please give it back to her. Hope tells her mother that Steffy is never going to give up especially when she is hurting like this. Ridge shows up and Bill smirks and wonders what took him so long to get here. Bill is drinking a few shots. He claims that he did not lure Steffy in and Ridge will get no arguments from him that he should have stayed away from Steffy. He’s not going to explain himself, but he did fall in love with her and does care that she is hurting. He admits that he made a horrendous mistake, but Ridge of all people ought to understand that since he’s been in love with two women at the same time. And Bill should have known when that other woman is a much younger woman, lives are going to be ripped apart. Bill tells Ridge to stop; he doesn’t need a life lecture from him. He’s acknowledged his mistake and the pain it has caused, but he has a news flash for Ridge…..he is the one who caused Steffy’s life to be torn apart. Ridge hauls off and Bill’s mouth happens to be in the way of his fist. Bill reels from the blow and he touches the blood. He licks the blood off his finger and says there is nothing like tasting your own blood; it gets the adrenaline flowing. He knows Ridge is protecting his daughter so he will give him a pass, but that pass expires in just about ten seconds if he doesn’t get the hell out of his face. Ridge issues his own warning – stay away from Steffy. Bill has done enough damage and he will never let him hurt her again.
