B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy witnesses Hope being harassed and hounded by the reporters in front of the office. Marcus is first to come to her rescue and makes the reporters scatter. Bill walks in on Liam and nags him for taking another day off from the office and assumes it is because of his worrying about Hope. He’s amazed when he finds out that Amber has been sniffing around….she’s bad news for Hope. Hope calls Liam and he tries to talk lowly without Bill hearing him mention the psychiatrist or meds. Bill hears enough and rags again on Liam’s crazy girlfriend. She must be crazy, otherwise why is she seeing a shrink. Hope says she does not want to run to Dr. Barton every time she has an anxious moment with the press so she will be all right. Dr. Barton calls Hope and apologizes for having to cut short their last meeting. She did not prescribe Hope any more pills so if she has more then she should toss them and not be tempted. Rick catches Amber in his office….and she quickly hides the pills she has been holding for Hope. Caroline needs Rick’s input on a design she is working on. Caroline is grateful for Amber’s help. Steffy drops in on Hope and says she would not wish this media frenzy on anyone. Hope reminds her that if she would sign the annulment papers all of this would go away. She and Liam could get married and everyone get on with their lives. Steffy listens but ends up saying that she will sign nothing. This will all play out in time. Hope stares at the pills in her purse; Amber stares at the laptop while investigating the pills online. She discovers her pharmacy has been shut down. Finally unable to stand it any longer, Hope runs to the pills and takes one. Liam shows up and she is glad for his support. He’s glad to see that he has that smile back on her face. Steffy stops in to see Liam, but only finds Bill. She’s surprised to hear Bill say that not only is Hope seeing a shrink, she is popping pills too. Steffy needs to stick to her guns and stay sane and Liam will come back to her.
