The TV MegaSite's Monday 9/17/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

While Rick is smirking and even putting out his photo on Ridge’s desk, Hope walks in. She tells him to enjoy it while he can as Ridge is not retiring; he’s only on his honeymoon. Rick suggests it is a start and he wants to prove to both his Dad and Ridge that he can run the company. Rick questions her on Thomas and mentions he seemed very attentive at the wedding. She fires back that Liam seems to have changed too. In his office, Liam pours himself a stiff drink while he incorporates a new attitude and basically chews out his assistants to get him some better stories than what they are presenting. Bill is pleased. He tells Liam that he doesn’t have to play nice as nice guys finish last. He can forget about Hope. She was a learning experience. He can thank her later. Caroline seems a little less than pleased when Rick announces to all of them that there will be a photo shoot with Thomas and Hope for the new line. He coaches both of them that the press ate up that kiss at her press conference, so he needs more of that. She needs to portray that she is over Liam once and for all and ready to move on. Caroline sulks as she looks on while Hope vamps sexily with Thomas. Finally Caroline walks out and Thomas sees her and follows. Thomas quizzes Caroline and she unloads on him that he should see himself from her point of view when he is helping Hope, his "friend". And he’s putting their relationship on hold while doing all of this. They barely see each other. She ends up apologizing and saying she has been unfair and selfish.

Bill tells Liam that he can throw himself into other things, just forget Hope. Men can not retreat from the world or lose their pride. He can not lose his respect otherwise no one else will care what he has to say. A woman can’t love a man she doesn’t respect. You can’t earn it; you have to demand it in your expectations. He got off on the wrong foot. The first cut is always the deepest, but Liam will have respect from this day forward. Bill will see to that. Katie walks in and asks what is going on. Bill says he is teaching his son how to be a man. They argue about if Hope is really done with Liam or not and Bill doesn’t want Liam to be so namby pamby about it; time to move on. Liam walks out and tells them that in the future he will decide when he moves on and with whom, not them and they will have to respect that. Rick tells Hope that she has that Liam look in her eyes again; she needs to accept what happened and keep her options open like with Thomas. She receives flowers with a card that says “I Love You”. She turns around and there is her dad, Deacon.
