B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam looks at the annulment papers that Steffy has just handed him and is dumbfounded. She explains things have changed. Hope is always being pressured by the press and even by her fans and Steffy keeps ending up in the hospital; all this foolishness has to end so why not here? They both laugh when they discover they both are big Bob Hope fans and his Thanks for the Memories. Steffy thanks Liam for so much. Brooke tells Hope that when she found the press was going after her that way that she did call Dr. Barton to try to get her to call Hope and perhaps calm her down and help in some way. Brooke accompanies Hope to Dr. Bartonís session and at every turn Brooke tells Hope none of this was her fault. Hope reminds her that it was no one elseís. She panicked and did not call Liam to avoid the press but hid, took a pill and then even had the audacity to go skiing as if everything was normal. Liam did not know she was medicated. Then when she crashed into Steffy, she just left her there on the mountain without getting help. All of that changes today. She is going to take charge. She says she did a lot of soul-searching on the plane back and sheís ready to make some changes about her past bad choices. Bill talks to Ramona on the phone and she fills him in that Steffy is fine, but being treated at the hospital and Hope is on her way back home. Steffy may be suspicious about how the press got wind of Hope being there in Aspen. Bill confides in his secretary that heís not out to really get Hope, but he does hope Liam will see her for who she is and get her out of his life. He doesnít think there is a shrink in this world that can help that basket case. Dr. Barton tells Hope that she is struggling with her choices now and that in some respects she is beginning to believe what the press and her fans are saying. Perhaps she should not have moved in with Liam and this is something they need to assess. Steffy tears up and tells Liam to be sure and put those papers away safely. It took her so long to sign them. He takes them and tears them up and throws them to the wind, they float out to a stream. Liam takes Steffy in his arms and they kiss without saying a word.
