The TV MegaSite's Monday 7/30/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope and Liam discuss the video and he asks her to please remember the vows they said on their wedding day. He wants her to be careful what she says next as she implies that she's had a change of heart. This time instead of her being the problem, she points out that Liam is being naive and he is acting like she and Steffy are interchangeable. Liam calls the kiss a mistake, but she is still disgusted that it almost led to them making love. And even more disturbing is that she suddenly realizes that Steffy was still there hiding in a closet and heard every word. Steffy blames Brooke for Hope seeing the video and what she may do next. Brooke is devastated when she learns that the certificate hasn't been signed yet so technically Hope and Liam are not married. Brooke warns Steffy to keep her distance from them.

Ridge scolds Pam for letting Bill in his office without him being there. Bill retaliates by reminding Ridge that he owns 12 1/2 percent of FC. He's only concerned about Marcus and thinks either Eric or Ridge should front the bond since Justin won't ask for his help. Taylor arrives and Ridge is shocked to hear that Hope and Liam aren't legally married yet. This is the first that Bill is hearing about the video and vows to sue whoever taped it. Taylor says all this drama started when Deacon came to town. Liam and Hope continue to discuss the situation and he begs her to just sign the papers. He's stunned when instead she rips them up and says her perfect wedding day was a joke as too much was kept from her. He won't accept that this is the way she wants things to end. He knows that she still loves him, but love is not enough if they can't forgive each other when things go wrong. He is not perfect and he needs her forgiveness now just like she needed his in the past and he did not withhold that. She wishes she could hate him. He begs her one last time for her to forgive him.

Kristina says she needs to speak to Kristina immediately about Trey.  Sam hopes Kristina is going to say she is quitting ďMob Princess.Ē Kristina admits that the show is a way to keep Trey in her life, but that Trey isnít interested in getting involved with her. She reveals that Sonny believes that Trey is keeping a secret from her. She says Trey became distant after he got a call from his father after a couple of days with no contact. Sam asks Kristina what she knows about Treyís father.  Kristina gets defensive and says she doesnít want Sam to investigate Trey; she wants her to tell her how to get Trey to go out with her. Sam says the simplest solution is to quit the show. Kristina doesnít want to do that. Sam says that considering the state of her marriage, she is the last person who should give relationship advice. She says Kristina is beautiful, smart, and talented, and Trey doesnít deserve her if he doesnít see that.  Kristina leaves and Sam goes back to safecracking.

Jason warns Carly to stay away from Todd because he is impulsive and dangerous. She says that staying away from Todd would be difficult because their children are dating.

She cites the time when he was kind to Sam after she lost her baby. Jason wonders why Todd cared about Samís baby. Carly says Sam must be ok with Todd; otherwise, she wouldnít have taken a job with him. Jason says that doesnít make sense, unless Sam is working a case. Carly wonders if Sam is investigating Todd.

He tells him that his men followed Heather Webber when she took Anthonyís body. He then recounts the series of events as told to him by his men. Todd wonders why Johnny never said anything before. Johnny says he didnít want to call attention to the location of Anthonyís body, and then he didnít want Starr to know her father was a baby-switching kidnapper.  He repeats that if Todd tells anyone about the accident, then he will tell the world about the baby switch.
