The TV MegaSite's Friday 5/18/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

While Thomas awaits awkwardly, Karen pulls Caroline aside and says this is not open for debate. They are not going to discuss this, not now. Kate tells Donna that she hasn’t seen her yet, but Bill’s sister, Karen, has moved in just down the beach. She is sure they will all be one big happy family soon. As a matter of fact, without being invited, Bill just drops in with a bottle of wine to welcome his sister to the neighborhood. He meets Dani for the first time and warns Karen just what people might think with two young ladies sharing a home and traveling so much together. Karen looks to Dani and whispers this is the reason they aren’t going to say anymore tonight. However, Caroline pushes it more and begs her mother to not keep the secret any longer. She wants Thomas to meet her entire family. Put on the spot in front of Thomas, Karen slowly reveals there is no father involved but Caroline does have two parents. She states that she and Dani are both Caroline’s mom and they have been partners for years. Caroline is bubbling with happiness and says it is no big deal. However one look at Thomas’s face shows his confusion.

Thomas stutters but manages to apologize for constantly asking about a father….he just assumed and he shouldn’t have. Love is the bottom line and he thinks it is great that Karen found Dani. Karen reminds him that she is appreciative of how Thomas feels, but not everyone will feel that way. And especially her brother, Bill, so he must never know of this. He would not accept it. In a moment of intimacy, Katie tells Bill that they are as solid as they have ever been; they have handled all the challenges thrown at them. With her past medical history, she doesn’t even know how it is possible but she is pregnant. Adamantly he tells her no, she is not going to have this child. She will have an abortion, end of discussion.
