The TV MegaSite's Wednesday 5/23/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Bill and his secretary, Alison, listen to the planted bug of Hope in a session with Dr. Barton who has just explained that although Hope wasn’t expecting to talk about this, estrangement from a parent can leave lasting scars. Hope admits it is weird since it involved both her mother and Bridget with her father, Deacon Sharpe. She can’t help wondering too why he never wanted anything to do with her. She does feel rejected. Maybe she would have handled everything with the press quiet differently had Deacon not disappeared from her life. She knows she could reach out to him, but she really feels he is the one who needs to reach out to her. She tells Dr. Barton that she can’t wait for the next few weeks and she will be so happy to be Liam’s wife. Katie tells Brooke that she is pregnant. Brooke is happy for her, of course, but only concerned because of her heart condition she was not supposed to get pregnant. Bill tells Alison that he doesn’t want Liam marrying this girl and her daddy seems to be the key. He needs her to find out every little piece of information she can on that clown.

Steffy tells Liam that he knows where she stands. Time is running out and he needs to stop it or their marriage ends. It’s up to him. He thinks she has been exceptionally cool about all of this. She reminds him that he’s a grown man and only he can decide how he’s going to spend the rest of his life. He gives her a hug before he goes back to his office. Bill rags on him again, the difference between Hope and Steffy. Liam walks out pretending not to hear him. Katie shows up unexpectedly at Steffy’s office wondering out of curiosity why she signed the annulment papers and then why Liam tore them up……yet no one told Hope. She accuses Steffy of doing this for the opposite reaction and that was to win Liam back. Time is running out….Liam is gonna marry Hope the minute the divorce is final so Steffy had to play the last card in her hand. Hope comes back to Liam’s office just after he is seen looking at photos of both he and Hope and he and Steffy. Hope is happy and says she got into some unexpected territory with Dr Barton today but she felt liberated and she is putting all the things that have bothered her for her entire life behind her. And now she can give Liam all of her. Alison gives Bill the bad news, they will have to devise a Plan B as Deacon Sharpe is in prison. Bill gloats that even a jail cell cannot stop him from achieving his goal.
