The TV MegaSite's Wednesday 5/9/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge drags out a box of breaded butterfly coconut shrimp. Steffy quips she hopes it comes with instructions as she remembers Brooke’s Thanksgiving skills. Ridge answers that she is great preparing for two people but over that, they usually cater. Brooke brings home take-out and then realizes Steffy is there…..and then in walks Hope, all surprised to see the other there. Hope immediately goes to Steffy and hugs her and apologizes for hurting her and hopes she can forgive her. Steffy replies that she is okay and she knows Hope didn’t mean to hurt her. She spies Hope’s bags and surmises that she’s not there just for dinner. Hope admits that she is moving back home. Liam did not ask her to leave; it was her decision. Bill doesn’t think Liam is acting very grateful for all the trouble he went through to bring the appropriate wine over for their dinner. Truth is, Liam forgot he had invited them for dinner. Katie and Bill are surprised when Liam admits that he forgot because Hope moved out. Katie wants to go, but Bill insists he will not leave his son at a time like this. So they’ll get in the kitchen and rustle something up. Caroline arrives as she is part of the family now. Bill quizzes Liam if he told Hope that he tore up the annulment papers and kissed Steffy. Liam whispers no; it didn’t come up and there was no reason to mention it now. Caroline joins in and espouses her belief that Hope was experiencing being caught in the middle in a conflict of her values that she so publicly embraced and the actual life she was living. Liam reminds them that the wedding is still on. Bill adds…..not before the divorce is final. He gets in his digs one more time that Hope is a basket case and her future is unknown. That is not the sort of girl that Liam should commit to.

Steffy and Hope have a heart to heart in which Hope says she just could not continue to live with Liam when he was still married to Steffy. And that was not Steffy’s problem to fix, but Hope’s. Steffy says Hope seems so much better. There’s an undercurrent in the air when the subject turns to Hope’s wedding and just where it’s gonna be and if Liam knows and approves. Steffy implies that it’s not too good to make too many definite plans yet. She appreciates being invited, but it’s not written in stone just yet. Hope tells Brooke that they are being insensitive. They should not be discussing wedding plans in front of Steffy. She excuses herself to go have a word with Steffy. She maintains that Steffy must really not think there is going to be a wedding. She tries to get Steffy to say if Liam has said or done anything to make her think otherwise. Has he given her reason to believe that he will stay with her. Finally Steffy relents and asks Hope if she is ready for this. Yes, something has happened between her and Liam.
