B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Brooke makes Liam admit that for that one brief moment when Hope was on the back of his A.T.V. and Steffy chasing them, he was about to tell Hope that he would end his marriage. Brooke says she is going to be sensitive to Steffy’s condition, but not at the expense of her daughter. He needs to be with the woman he really loves. Liam says their conversation is over. He cares about Steffy and her progress depends on him right now, so he can’t leave her. Steffy wakes up and apologizes again for lying to Liam and why she did it. The resort was so incredible and then she looked up and saw Hope. Everything was ruined. Ridge is surprised when he learns from Eric that the newest designs are from Rick. Amber sits in Rick’s lap and coos to him that if sticks with her, he’ll be running the company soon. Ridge tells Rick that the designs are not terrible. But it’s obvious the designs are not Rick’s. Eric wants to put them in production right away. Rick says drawing is not his strong suit. He hired someone to draw them, but the designs are his. Ridge tells Eric that he doesn’t have the authority to go over him and put the designs in production. As Brooke leaves Liam’s, she runs into Katie and asks how Steffy has been. Katie says nothing different, she’s a trooper.

Liam tells Ridge how dare he dismiss his dad like that….after all he founded this company. Ridge says okay, the final tale will be the sales figures. Ridge quips that Rick has made the big time now; let’s see if he can stay there. Brooke fills Katie in on all that Liam confided in her. Steffy tells Liam that she was just trying to protect them. And she was right, at the first look he had of Hope, off he was running after her. She’s not upset, but she thinks they need to clear the air before they move forward. She begs him to stay. She wants to be a better partner, a better person. She needs his love.
