The TV MegaSite's Monday 2/20/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Stephanie sees Steffy pouring herself some champagne and asks what is she celebrating……or drowning her sorrows. Steffy says she did the right thing and signed the annulment papers. Hope and Liam are so excited that Rick got her to sign them. Brooke wonders how fast they can get to the courthouse. Liam is happy too, but he doesn’t want to jump the gun and run to Vegas. They need to be sure this is all legit. Sure enough when they look at the papers more closely, Steffy signed it “loser”. She gloats to Stephanie that is exactly what Liam will be if he goes ahead and leaves her and goes to Hope. Rick barges in and they both chastise him for trying to help his sister by pulling this act. Stephanie says they are on to him so he can cut the charades. He pretends to be hurt that Steffy would think he had an agenda. She explains that she saw him coming a mile away and wasn’t going to fall for his kiss or his act. He reminds her that she seemed to enjoy the kiss so he’ll take that as a good sign. Hope complains to her mom that this is just a game to Steffy and so far she is winning. She feels that Liam is even defending Steffy and he needs to do something. They can not wait six months. She can not stand this; they have to get an annulment.

Stephanie implores Brooke to drag her son away from Steffy. His newest moves are not going to work. Steffy declares to Rick that she is not going to be coerced about signing the papers and she certainly is not going to be seduced. He wonders how she can hang around for six months waiting only for Liam when she could be spending that time with Rick. Liam tells Hope that she is shaking and she needs to calm down. She is too angry; Steffy is holding them hostage. It’s not about the law; it’s all about Steffy. He says it’s the law and they have to respect that. She says she wants to be his wife and she wants to make love to him, but she wants to be married first. It’s not fair that they have to wait just because of Steffy. Rick tells Steffy that she can wait the six months and then she is gonna kick herself for wasting so much time. He tries one more time to tell her how great they can be together. They had exciting chemistry; he wasn’t just trying to get back at her dad. She says she’s had real love and that is not going to happen between the two of them. Hope calls Rick on his cell phone and begs him to do something quickly. She doesn’t care what he does, but he needs to sweep Steffy off her feet and the sooner the better. She can not stand this any longer.
