The TV MegaSite's Thursday 8/23/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope is not sure she can believe Steffy and Liam was too wasted to even remember everything. Steffy says if she doesn’t believe her, then she probably isn’t going to believe the man she claims to love. They simply danced, they didn’t even kiss. Hope has her answer and needs to accept that. Brooke confronts Liam and asks what was he thinking. He claims he only wanted to marry her daughter. And he realizes that Rick wants him to stay away from Hope, but he loves her and he can’t do that. He told Hope the truth. Yes he went out dancing with Steffy and drank too much, but he didn’t betray Hope. Brooke isn’t sure the truth is enough. She heads straight to Steffy and blames her for inviting Liam out to dance. She says Liam realizes now he made a mistake; one that will never happen again.

Liam manages to track Hope down at Forrester and wants to talk. He knows Hope has talked to Steffy and knows from her too that nothing happened at the club or afterwards. Hope says she knows that part but she still doesn’t understand why he went out in the first place. Today is not a good day for a talk though. She is tired and upset and Liam can’t see that he did no wrong. Even if nothing happened, he was hanging out with HER again. She’s hurt and he is feeling guilty. When is it going to stop; when is enough enough? It makes him think. He says now; it stops now. Steffy tells Brooke that Hope is looking for perfection and that is not Liam. She did not ruin Hope’s wedding. She did everything she could to deliver him to Stephanie’s house on time. Rick talks to Thomas and says Liam proved today that he’s not ready to get married and he doesn’t want Hope to get hurt. He even brings up the fact that Thomas once was very interested in Hope and he was good for her; certainly better than Liam is. Thomas reminds him that was the past and he has moved on. And with Caroline who Rick also just happens to be interested in too; what a coincidence that Rick seems to suggest that Thomas could pick back up again with Hope if Liam is out of the picture. Thomas thinks over his romantic times with Hope, even asking her to marry him. Steffy tells Brooke not to confuse the issue. Liam and Hope are destructive to each other. The only person who actually thinks it is a good thing is Brooke. Liam admits to Hope that they keep trying to patch things up and he keeps apologizing to her and it gets harder and harder. His guilt is like poison. They can’t seem to stop, they just keep on fighting even if it hurts. He ends by saying that he loves her whether she forgives him or not. She cries that she loves him too. He wants to know if she can strip everything down and start over; he believes they can make it.
