B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge tells Liam that he knows he is still in love with Steffy as he almost ran off with her in Italy. Liam says yes but only because he thought Hope had left him. Ridge says yes he shared some very intimate moments with Steffy yet married Hope anyway. Liam wonders if Ridge is saying he made a mistake by marrying Hope. He married Hope because he loved her, and the last thing he wants to do is hurt her. Brooke calls and says she knows Ridge does not agree with her, but Liam must tell Hope the truth before her preview. Steffy keeps saying she has something to tell Hope. Hope is busy and has little time for her but gushes that she can just say it quickly. Things are going so perfect that she keeps waiting for someone to say it was all a big mistake. Steffy loses her nerve and quickly says that she just wants Hope to be happy. They are stepsisters and she really values their relationship and perhaps they can be closer some day. All their problems are in the past and she totally supports her now. Hope hugs her as she says it meant so much to her for Steffy to come to Italy. Stephanie and Eric catch Marcus “practicing” his kiss on Dayzee. Eric and Marcus have a very happy bonding when they talk about having another wedding in his house. Marcus says Eric is the best dad a guy could have. He’s done a lot to change his life and he can’t thank him enough. He asks Thomas to be his best man and Thomas proudly accepts.

Liam says he doesn’t want to tell Hope; it’s gonna kill her. Ridge says yes she will be hurt but Brooke is not gonna let up so Liam better tell Hope himself. Just be honest with her and tell her what happened. They both agree it was very strange that Deacon showed up at that exact time and was the catalyst for everything that went wrong. Steffy drops in to see her dad at home but only finds Brooke. She warns Steffy not to try to stop Liam. He is on his way to tell Hope everything. Steffy reminds her that she did not try to manipulate anything in Italy or even stop the wedding. She took the high road and did not tell Hope. She did not want Hope to hate her and she didn’t want Hope to be hurt. She will always love Liam but she will have to accept his marriage. Brooke spits out that she wishes she did not know what she did, but it must be done. Hope must know. She will not allow her to start her marriage based on a lie. Hope spies Liam lurking in the shadows and he greets her with a kiss. She gushes more how perfect the day has been and a natural progression of her Hope line now with Hope’s Perfect Wedding. She is back to living her values and principles and it feels so right. She is being honest and authentic to her audience and to the press. Liam stammers that he has something to tell her. She hushes him by saying he doesn’t have to keep explaining how he felt on their wedding day. The past is in the past. He says this is different and he just hopes she will understand.
