B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Taylor questions Katie’s plan to have Bill raise their son with Brooke as the surrogate mother. Katie won’t tell Taylor where she is staying. She doesn’t feel she needs therapy. She states that she is fine and happy. Taylor says she is not, but she can get her life back. Steffy tells Liam that he doesn’t think Will has picked up on any of this nor feels neglected at all. Brooke has been incredible to him and to Bill; she’s really been amazing. Bill and Brooke get into the hot air balloon and he tells her to relax and hold on. This is not his first rodeo and she’s in good hands.

Katie tells Taylor that she is not unstable. She has taken control of her life and doing it the best way she knows how. Taylor tells her how counter productive it is that she assumes that death is right around the corner so she’s not going to live life now. Without help her postpartum depression could turn into postpartum psychosis and she could become destructive to herself and others. Katie says Taylor is wrong. She is not depressed and she knows exactly what she is doing. She walks out. Brooke thinks the view is spectacular and she feels at peace.
