The TV MegaSite's Tuesday 8/21/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

While Hope stares at Liam with disgust, Liam begs her to forget last night. It meant nothing and they have the rest of their lives. They are to get married today as they planned. He says he is sorry; he can’t say it many more times. She has to forgive him. He did not cheat on her. He’s standing there; he still loves her; nothing has changed. She wonders how many weddings they are going to have to plan before he gets the idea they are not ready to be married. He says he is not leaving until she says she will marry him. Finally in desperation, Ridge pulls him aside and drags Liam in front of a mirror and tells him this is not the way to prove he is ready to be married. Steffy continues to tell her mother that Liam is probably getting married about now; she just wanted him to have fun one last night. Hope tells Liam he is making a fool of himself. He was out with Steffy the night before their marriage and he expects her to just accept that. He says he didn’t do anything wrong and he won’t leave until she comes down. She does and he falls to his knees at her feet. He just wants to hear her say she will forgive him. Slowly she says she does love him, but he doesn’t deserve her. She thinks he should go. Marcus steps forward to politely escort him out.

Everyone gives their condolences to Hope. Stephanie tells her this is little comfort, but she thinks she made the right decision. Hope cries that she is so sorry that she ruined everyone’s day. Brooke tells her this doesn’t have to be the end if she doesn’t want it to be. Marcus tells Bill that Liam is calling a cab, but Bill says the hell he is. Katie gets to him first and reads him the riot act how disrespectful he was for pitting two women against each other. That is not acceptable. Bill takes his turn in listening to Liam make excuses for what happened. He vows he will beg a thousand times, whatever it takes to get Hope back as his wife. Bill spins him around and tells him the hell he will; no son of his will go begging for crumbs. Liam tells his dad to get out of his way. Bill shoves him again and tells him he needs to remember just who he is – his life, his name. Those are things no woman can take away from him. Bill says he was disappointed and revolted at the sight of his own flesh and blood dancing around in his underpants with his Halloween hairdo and his skater tattoo and actually begging on his knees to that neurotic bunch of losers to forgive him. Liam lashes out and says Bill’s opinion of Liam isn’t nearly as important as Bill thinks it should be. Bill says just as well because his opinion is that Liam is pathetic and Bill is embarrassed to even look at him to see just what he would allow – that emotional black hole of a girlfriend would put him through. Hope moves in and Liam is dancing on air, but she moves out and he can’t eat. He can’t sleep; he’s catatonic. Bill tells him that he’s not going to put up with this; Hope disrespecting him in front of both sets of parents. He needs to learn to love himself before he can love anyone else. Liam screams at him that he doesn’t want to be Bill. He doesn’t want to be as sad, lonely and arrogant as Bill worshipping at the altar of himself. Liam says he has made mistakes and no he’s not too proud to admit that. Bill shoves Liam again and calls him a boy scout so maybe they will stick a merit badge on his chest. He keeps pushing him with a strong finger and tells Liam he’s just a bad, bad naughty boy and lets Hope keep humiliating him. He’s not going to stand up for himself. Bill says he could walk out on Liam; hell he could walk all over him and Liam wouldn’t do a thing about it. Liam takes a swing at him; Bill grabs him in return in a stranglehold and states that he is a Spencer and no one judges them. They do not beg; they take. He is not Liam, the beggar, but Liam the conqueror; he better get that. Liam breaks down and cries that he hears him. Steffy is about to order an arrangement to be delivered to her two friends getting married when Hope shows up at her door. She announces that no, they did not get married; just as Steffy had planned.
