The TV MegaSite's Wednesday 7/18/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Marcus promises Dayzee that he will be text-free on their wedding day. It’s been noticeable and driving everyone crazy. Liam drops back by Brooke’s and says he felt he owed her a visit. He told Hope everything. Brooke says only partly. He did not tell her that he and Steffy jumped onto the bed and he was prepared to run off with her until Hope showed up. She warns him that he is married now to Hope…..just stay completely away from Steffy. He tells her that she doesn’t have to worry about Steffy; he’s talked to her and she only wants him and Hope to be happy. Brooke is glad but she also can’t believe that all that passion just suddenly disappeared in one minute. Hope drops by to see Steffy and they go over the huge misunderstanding. Hope says she forgave Liam for that and she forgives Steffy too. Hope tells her that almost every lesson she has learned had something to do with Steffy. Donna tells Katie that she and Justin are good together right now, but nothing serious again, it’s better off this way. She’s going on a cruise soon. Anthony tells Dayzee that she is an inspiration. Not only does she talk the talk, but she walks the walk.

The girls give Dayzee a bridal shower with Pam even throwing in her infamous lemons bars plus recipe…….mums the word. Stephanie gives Dayzee an all expense paid trip to Hawaii from her and Eric. Steffy tells Hope not to brush her off. They have been on this merry-go-round too long and instead of being a gracious winner, she threw it in her face. She’s getting better and what happened in Italy wasn’t trying to hurt Hope or winning out over her. Liam tells Brooke that he was there when Steffy destroyed the video, so he doesn’t want to torture Hope any more by telling her that too. It won’t surface. As usual, Marcus is in the car and texting at same time and he hits someone. It turns out that it is Anthony and he is lying unresponsive on the ground.
