B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Despite being so upset before, Hope tells Liam that she forgives him. She sees it was just a terrible misunderstanding and why he felt that way. She wishes he had not kissed Steffy on their wedding day, but it’s over now and she really doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. Pam interrupts to apprise her that Jarrett is waiting outside and she promised him a short exclusive with Hope. Jarrett playfully asks Hope if the wedding was a perfect as she made it out to be….since she did mention some unexpected twists and turns. Suddenly he gets a phone call saying his car is being towed away so he has to bolt. Brooke knew he was with Hope so obviously made this happen to save her any more embarrassment. She tells her mother that Liam just told her everything. Brooke sees her hurt and gives her a big hug. At Dayzee’s, she informs Anthony and her other friends that she is getting married tomorrow and wants to be sure they will be there as her family. Justin and Donna walk in to hear the good news, soon followed by Thomas and Caroline and Eric and Stephanie. Steffy keeps looking at the video of her and Liam before the wedding. He walks in and she wants to know if he is okay and did he tell Hope. He says it is the hardest thing he has ever had to do. Steffy reminds him that while Hope is upset and hurt, she does love him and she will forgive him, just give her some time. She’s relieved to hear him say that Hope already has already forgiven him.

Hope tells her mom that she knew her marriage would be tested. She just didn’t know it would happen this soon. But it was only a couple of kisses, nothing came of it so it does not change what she and Liam have now. She knows he loves her and wants this marriage so that is what she is going to focus on. Dayzee can’t say thanks enough to Stephanie for doing all of his for her. She tells Stephanie that she is more than a friend, more than a mentor, more like a mother and she would like her to be her matron of honor. Of course, Stephanie is delighted. She calls to order Dayzee’s favorite flower, the gardenia, for her bouquet. Liam says Hope forgave him for the kiss. She does not know about the accidental video; that would hurt her too much. He’s glad Steffy deleted it. She admits she e-mailed herself a copy as it was the last happy time they had together. She gets her cell then deletes that copy. Liam grins that he did everything Brooke asked and it almost cost him his marriage, but Hope has forgiven him so perhaps they can all forget about it. Steffy says yes they can now pretend that the video never existed. Hope knows they kissed but she will never know the words he said in that hotel room that he loved Steffy and wanted them to leave and have a life together. Hope doesn’t know that but Steffy does and she will always remember that.
