The TV MegaSite's Friday 8/17/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

What’s that between Liam’s ears – certainly not any brains, just sawdust. He wakes up from being sprawled out on the hotel pool chair with a towel draped over his head. He hasn’t a clue where he is or what happened. Steffy finally has to pull the towel off and show him a mirror – a dye job and a gigantic tattoo on his neck. He groans about a dozen times – oh my God! He has a wedding to get to. He doesn’t know how he will explain this to Hope who expects a traditional, formal wedding. She even calls to wish him Happy Wedding Day and he stammers that he’s running a little late but he will clean up and be there as soon as he can. The wedding guests begin to arrive and she makes apologizes to Bill and others that Liam is on his way.

On the motorcycle, Steffy drops Liam off at Stephanie’s pool house. Hope hears it and goes to greet him. He prolongs the moment and tries to get away to shower and change, but she insists that he take off the helmet and give her a kiss. He’s got some tall explaining to do to tell her about the dye job and tattoo, all he hopes will just be temporary and wash off. He doesn’t even know how it happened. He just knows that she cancelled on him last night and he went to a club and went wild. At the end of a long explanation, Hope accepts it but if they are going to be totally honest, she wonders if he was with Steffy.
