B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope confides in Thomas that she is thinking of retiring the Hope For the Future line if she has that authority. She says she has a lot to learn about life, but so does Thomas. He says he is not a puppet for his kid sister, but he knew that he did not stand a chance with Hope if she had known Liam was in Cabo too so he went along with that scheme. Dr. Montgomery escorts Steffy to her new MRI test. Bill escorts Katie back into Liam’s Malibu house. She accuses him of not letting go of Steffy, but just keeping her in the family. He tries to convince her that this is just another one of her misguided suspicions. She says Liam adores him, but that is all going to change because he doesn’t know the real Bill Spencer. She cries that the truth has a way of tearing the blinders off.

Hope calls Liam with the excuse of asking about Steffy’s MRI test. Bill tells Katie that he loves her and she knows that. He only did what he did so Liam wouldn’t make a huge mistake and leave his marriage. Katie counters that he chose her, he came to her because he needed her. But all the lies are gonna stop today. Poor mousy Katie Logan isn’t going to accept them any more. He says he is not out of control and does not need saving. She says he is so full of himself that he can’t see it. So if he won’t listen, then she’ll go to Taylor or anyone else who will listen. He blocks her way from leaving, picks her up and slings her over his shoulder and heads upstairs.
