B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Bill tells Liam that it isn’t fair to punish Steffy for something that he did. Liam previously said he wanted Bill to act more like a father than a CEO, so Bill says be careful what you wish for. Liam says Steffy may not have known that Bill lied about this, but she is not entirely innocent. Liam says he needs to make his own decisions and he does not need Bill’s help. Liam is disgusted and tells Bill that he is not going to expose him. He’s not doing it to protect Bill, but for all the people here in this building who look up to him and now would wonder who is this man. During a conversation, Donna admits to Brooke that she knows who stole her designs. She goes into this long story about Pam and Nick going on Let’s Make a Deal. Stephanie walks in and wonders why they are talking about her sister. Pam tells Nick that she has to confess that she took the designs and will never do it again. That was the way she was raised, to stand by your family. This is the kind of revenge that Donna will need to get even with her. She has to tell her family before Donna does.

Pammy comes to see Stephanie just as Donna is about to tell Stephanie that it was Pam that took the designs to Jackie M. Pam finishes the explanation of why she did it. It was just after Stephen left her and she felt all alone and unloved. Jackie M. was family and she just wanted to help. Liam states that from this moment on he considers himself separated until they sort this out. Steffy cries that she will move back to her mother’s house. She has enough faith in her marriage that she won’t try to stop him. Bill tells her that she was incredible and she has not lost her marriage yet. She was strong and Liam may be a man, but he doesn’t know yet if he wants Bambi or Steffy. Liam and Hope confess their love for each other. She tells him he has a lot of thinking to do. Is it too late for them or just their beginning?
