The TV MegaSite's Tuesday 1/31/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Stephanie is very hurt and disappointed that Pam betrayed her family and gave the designs to Jackie M. She won’t take responsibility for Stephen’s leaving Pam or that being the reason that Pam did what she did. She tried to accept him into the family, just as Pam now has to take responsibility for what she did. No one forced her to do this. Pam asks that Stephanie forgive her. Stephanie says she is furious but more amazed. She just doesn’t know who her sister is anymore. Katie tells Liam that she’s still trying to make nice with Bill, but it’s gonna take time. She does believe though that Steffy wasn’t involved, at least not in the MRI exchange and faking the blood clot. It still doesn’t erase a lot of things she has done and he should not tolerate that. Katie knows she should not tolerate Bill so much either, but she cries that she loves him so much. Steffy tells Ridge that she is not going to give up on her marriage; Liam has been given his space and he just needs time. Ridge grouses that Liam doesn’t need time. He needs Ridge to make the decision for him. Hope talks to Steffy and admits she doesn’t want to tell the world about Bill; that wouldn’t help Liam. Ridge barges in on Liam and reminds him that he has one wife, no matter what she has done, and he needs to stay true to her.

Brooke tells Steffy that she doesn’t want her to get her hopes up. Liam loves Hope and Steffy giving him space won’t cure that. Just do the right thing, and don’t move back. Pam begs Stephanie not to give up on her now, not after all they have been through together. She has lost her mother and now Stephen. She can’t lose Stephanie too. Stephanie explains that this time she can not write this off as another of Pam’s pranks. With Pam begging her the whole way, Stephanie walks her to the elevator and tells her that she has to go. Eric and Ridge will never forgive her this time. She hopes it was worth it. The elevator door closes with Pam all alone. Steffy tells Hope that she gave Liam his space, not so he could hang out with Hope but to remind him where he belongs. Ridge emphasizes again to Liam that he likes being his father-in-law and he doesn’t know the full story and that doesn’t matter, but he feels like Bill has had something to do with this. He and Brooke have had rough times over the years but they always made it through and came back together, so will Liam and Steffy. Hope calls Liam and says she does not want to pressure him. It’s a huge day and she just wanted to hear his voice and to tell him that she loves him. Liam agonizes, he has a decision to make.
