The TV MegaSite's Thursday 1/26/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam asks Brooke for a moment alone with Hope. Steffy rants at Bill that he made her think she had a ticking time bomb in her head. She tells Katie that she was the victim, she had nothing to do with this. He says instead of her going off on him, she should be thanking him. Liam was going to leave her and would have told her that in the hospital room in Cabo. He was only trying to stop that from happening. Maybe he did something despicable, but that is why he is where he is today. He pushes the buttons to make things happen. But his loyalty is clear. They may question his tactics, but he expects the Spencers to stick together. Steffy marches off saying she is going to find Liam and tell him this was all on his father. She just prays that she can save her marriage. And meanwhile she will tell her family that she is okay and not going to die any moment. Katie looks at Bill in disgust and asks how he can live with himself. It was stupid and dangerous and maybe even illegal. He tells her that he loves her and does not want this to tear them apart. They must keep this amongst themselves. She can’t understand why he would risk everything for Steffy. It’s not his son, it’s Steffy. She can’t live like this. He locked her in a tower, no one does that. She wants a man that can be honest with her. She needs time. Steffy charges into Forrester’s and sees Brooke first as she asks for Liam. Brooke tells her that she does know where he is, but she got the impression that their marriage was over so he does not want to see her. Liam tells Hope that maybe he doesn’t deserve it, maybe she can’t forgive him, but a fog has been lifted and he hopes she can. His and Steffy’s marriage from the beginning has just been a series of schemes, but that is over now. He refuses to live one more day that way. In moments of their joy, Steffy finds Liam and begs him to just wait and listen to her. Bill did this on his own. She had nothing to do with it and he must believe that.
