B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Amber whines that she thought she was losing Rick and she loves him so much, she did stupid things. She will never do something like that again. He screams that no one wanted her back in his life yet he defied them and now Amber pulls this. She pleads with him to please get past this. Hope tells her mom that after tonight Amber will be out of Rick’s life forever. Caroline talks to her mother first, who is not crazy about the idea, but Caroline tells Thomas that she’d like to go to the beach house for dinner and for him to meet her parents. Karen is put on the spot when Caroline and Thomas show up. He’s gushing about wanting to meet Caroline’s dad and knows he will be as cool as Karen is. Thomas is thrown for a loop when he wants to meet the father and Jarrett walks out….quickly announcing that no, he’s not the father, just an old friend of the family. He’s promptly followed by Danielle who Karen introduces as another friend of the family.

Amber continues to plead her case. She can see Rick being CEO of the company and her right there besides him if they can just get past this one little thing. He finally explodes; it is not just one little thing. It’s her way of life over and over and he can’t accept this any more. It’s one thing to hurt him, but a whole other thing to hurt his sister. She needs to stop blaming everyone else and take responsibility for her own actions. His mother saw Amber for what she is really is and finally he does too. He wants her to leave Rosey to Marcus and get out of L.A. and he never wants to lay eyes on her face again. The situation at the dinner table is awkward as Thomas keeps mentioning Caroline’s father. Karen calls Caroline aside and asks her to adhere to her wishes. This is a family matter and will not be discussed tonight.
