B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Staring at Liam’s dyed hair with a red streak through it and a gigantic tattoo on his neck, Hope is aghast and has to ask if he was with Steffy when this happened. He gulps but needs to tell the truth they promised each other and finally says yes. It wasn’t deliberate. Hope had turned him down….he knows now with good cause….but he didn’t think he had to sit home and mope around his house the night before his wedding. The more he admits, the deeper the hole he is digging. Hope tells him to look in the mirror, Steffy ruined him. People are always telling Hope that she is too young, but she states that it is really Liam who is not ready to get married. Brooke suspects something is amiss and goes to check on Hope and finds the lovebirds arguing in the guest house. She goes back and tells the group including Bill. Taylor drops in on Steffy who admits what has been happening the last two days. She just wanted Liam to have fun. He doesn’t laugh with Hope the way he laughs with her. Too bad he doesn’t realize that.

Liam stammers that he knows he messed up again but he wants to be Hope’s husband. He starts peeling off his clothes and trying to wash off the tattoo. He’s making a mess with slinging the water, but he doesn’t care. He just wants to get decent so they can get married. Hope looks at him with disgust. She admits she loves him and wants to get married, but he’s just not ready on this day. She didn’t want her Italian wedding to be her last memories of her wedding, neither does she want this. She turns to go with Liam stammering, begging her to come back. When she doesn’t, he follows just wearing his boxers. She goes into the main house with Liam not far behind. All the guests, along with Stephanie and Eric, stand there dumbfounded at what’s happening as Hope charges upstairs. Bill confronts Liam and asks where are his clothes, what happened to his hair and what is that on his neck. Liam determines that Hope went upstairs and no one will let him to her. She looks down over the railing while he looks up and begs her to come down as he is not leaving until they get married.
