B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Pam drops by on Stephanie at her request. She’s devastated when she sees that Stephanie is going to have a party to celebrate her life. Stephanie explains that the cancer has come back and this time she won’t beat it. Having radiation or chemo will only extend her life by another month. She wants Pam to say whatever she’d like to say now that she won’t be able to say when Stephanie is gone. Pam admits she is a little selfish as she doesn’t know what she will do without her big sister. She’s nothing to anybody else. They just have to accept her as family. She thinks back on the fun moments in their life. They laugh over that blessed infuriating woman that was their mother. Stephanie asks Pam if she has a message that she can give to her when she sees her. Would that be in Heaven?

Thomas wants to talk to Caroline but is informed that his office is being used so they chat in the hallway by Donna’s desk after he asks for privacy. He feels the chill that she is still upset with him about Rick falling out the window. He repeats again that it was an accident. Rick had tripped. She says the flowers were very nice…at least the first day. But not necessary every day and he can stop embarrassing himself and to please stop. He states that he over-reacted and kissed Hope in that press conference. He saw a chance and took it to get people talking about her new line. He’s running the company now and he has a new vision and it includes Caroline. He needs her to keep an open mind. He asks for another chance. Taylor and Brooke see him reprimand Donna for the comedy routine that she and Pam are presenting manning their receptionist desk. They must do better or one of both will be gone. Later he tells Brooke that she and Donna are no longer a part of the family. She is a valued employee, but Donna will have to step up to even be that. Brooke reminds Taylor that she hopes history is not going to repeat itself when Taylor thinks it is over between her and Ridge, because it is not and never will be.

GH Recap Written by Brenda
