B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy throws Liam some knowing glances that Aspen is the most beautiful city in the world. Justin tells Bill that the Forrester jet is about to land. Bill calls Oliver and wants to be sure everything is set in motion; let them see what Hope is made of. Justin tells Bill that it’s not too late to call this off. Bill says he didn’t get this far in this old world just leaving things to fate. Justin must have missed his calling. He should have been a judge in the Miss Congeniality contest. Rick is surprised to learn from his mom that Hope has been under that much stress and has been seeing a psychiatrist and even taking anti-anxiety medication. He says he will be there for her. He just hopes it won’t be that bad with the reporters following her in Aspen. He says good thing he has his own resources. He calls a friend and says he is sitting out this fashion week, but his sister is there. He needs him to watch out for Hope. The man says he will, just like she’s his own little sister. But game on in Aspen as the reporters spy Liam and Hope arrive and take off to the retreat. She tells Liam that she will not go stir-crazy. She will just take a short walk, read a lot and sleep and wait for him and they can go into the village at night when the reporters won’t be around. Rick still feels anxious about Hope being there since it is Bill’s house and he can manage things from a distance. He almost wishes that he was going there himself. Bill explains to Justin that he’s just giving Hope the chance to prove what she is made of. He knows her as a leech that just sucks Liam dry; this trip should tell the tale if she can stave off the reporters. Either way, his son will be better off because of Bill. Steffy admits to Ramona that she did things wrong the first time and it’s killing her that Liam and Hope are in her honeymoon house, but she will get through this. She states that whatever happens that Liam will have to make it back to her on his own. Ramona says she knows it was a magic place and who knows, by the end of the week perhaps she will be back together with Liam. As Liam moves through the house and especially the bedroom, he feels it too. Bill calls Oliver and says maybe he underestimated Hope, but they will know tomorrow when the reporters hit them like bees to a hive.

Days Recap Written by Michele and Cheryl  **One Day Ahead

Billie ran into EJ at the coffee house.  She wanted an answer to the question she asked him the other day.  He recapped how he caught her snooping through DiMera files.  He told her he could have her arrested.  She didnít think he went to his father or she would be in jail.  She said they both knew why he didnít go to Stefano.  Bo, Hope, John, and Marlena were at Bo and Hopeís house.  Bo and Hope got on the subject of getting married.  Bo wanted to know when he and Hope could get married.  She said they couldnít get married right away.  Bo wanted to know what was the holdup since she was in Alamania for two weeks and filed the petition.  John said they did.  Bo wanted to know how long it took for the divorce to be recognized in Salem.  John told him that they were sidetracked by Stefano.  Hope said Agent Spencer was working with the State Department to get the Alamania government to grant the divorce in absentia.  Marlena said they could all get married when that happened.  Bo realized that Stefano used the divorce to get John and Hope to Alamania in order to get the coin.  Hope said the coin was hidden in the egg that Princess Gina and the pawn stole for Stefano.  John said instead of giving it to him, they hid it away and Stefano has been looking for it ever since.  Bo realized that John and Hope didnít have memories of when they were the pawn and Princess Gina.  Bo asked how did Stefano think they could help and how did they know where to look.  Marlena didnít want to get into it because it would upset him.  Bo wanted to know how they found the egg.  Hope told him that Stefano turned them into Princess Gina and the pawn.  Hope told Bo that nothing happened between them.  John said he loved Marlena the same way Hope loved Bo.  Bo said that Stefano turned them into people who loved each other so much that they got married.  John said the mind control didnít work long enough for Stefano to get what he wanted.  Marlena said Stefano hoped John and Hope would never realize who they were.  Bo wondered how they kept the mind control from working.  John said they knew what was happening and prepared themselves.  John said he found a picture of Marlena and was drawn to it.  Hope said John helped her.  She said John kept talking to her about Bo.  John said it didnít take long for her to come back.  John said they had to pretend that they were still under mind control so they could leave.

Bo realized that Stefano was upset because his plan didnít work.  Marlena wondered if Stefano had the other half of the coin.  Hope didnít think Stefano had the coin.  She didnít think he knew what was on the other half of the coin.  Bo thought they were a step ahead of Stefano.  Bo wanted to help with the investigation, but the others didnít think he was ready.  Bo convinced them that he was going to be working on the case. EJ wanted to know who Billie was working for or else she would have to tell his father.  Billie knew that EJ was upset with Stefano and she was too after what he did to her mother.  EJ reminded her that Kate committed the worst crime against Stefano.  They continued to talk about Stefano and Kate until Billie wanted him to help her take down Stefano.  Bo was ready to take Stefano down, but Marlena and Hope thought they should wait because of Lexie. Hope thought Stefano might not be willing to make good on his threats now that Lexie is dying.  John got a text threatening to kill them if he didnít get the coin.  They all talked about what Stefano did while they were in Alamania.  John wanted to keep Marlena, Hope and the family safe.  He wanted them to lay low for a while.  Marlena didnít want to hide behind closed doors, but Hope thought they didnít have a choice.  Marlena suggested that they give Stefano what he wanted.  John thought that would be a mistake.  Bo thought it was the only thing they had right now.  John thought that they could put Stefano away if they could find out why the coin is important to him.  John wanted to get Marlena back to the townhouse and get security set up around the building.  He suggested Bo and Hope do the same thing.  Bo said Ciara could stay with Caroline and Kayla for a little while longer.  When John and Marlena left Bo and Hopeís house, a man came from behind the bushes and followed them.  While Bo and Hope were spending some romantic time together, a man was watching them through the window.  While John and Marlena were on their way home, a man grabbed Marlena and put a knife to her throat.  John wanted to know what the guy wanted.  The guy said to give him the coin or Marlena was dead.

He tells her not to turn it around on him. He says it isnít about the baby; it is about her lying to him, shutting him out, and confiding in the person that he specifically asked her not to talk to. He walks out, leaving her stranded alone at the Metro Court. McBain goes to Lukeís hotel suite to see Anna. Luke says John reminds him of a vampire.
