The TV MegaSite's Wednesday 12/5/12 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Very sarcastically, Bill looks at Rick and Caroline and says they have already decided amongst themselves that honesty is the best policy. Rick admits he lied to his sister and had good reasons. Bill chides him for suddenly getting morals. And there is no such thing as the right thing. That’s the equivalent of a high school Santa Claus. He told a lie and now Rick wants to untell the lie so he can suck up to Bill’s niece. Caroline speaks up and says yes Rick told a lie, but she’d rather be with a man who does that and then tells the truth than one who constantly hides behind the truth. And Liam might feel that same way so it’s best the truth come from Bill of why Deacon was in Italy rather than it coming from any of them. Hope asks Liam if she has said too much. He says she can tell him anything. She says she is just telling him how she feels. She’s not asking him to do anything, but when she thinks about her life, she knows she is supposed to spend it with him. She continues that she knows he is happy with Steffy, and she doesn’t want him unhappy, but she really feels he is the one she is supposed to spend her life with. He stammers that yesterday he would have said it was getting easier to give up the dream of them, but now standing here with her that isn’t exactly true. He feels like they really tried hard and it went the other way and the worst is behind them. She says it is nice to be able to relate to him in a new way, not expecting or demanding. He asks if they can still be friends. She knows they will always be connected with each other. She says he’s always had this attraction to Steffy and needed to see where that would lead. He agrees that she has been amazing….patient and trusting and anything he says or does is cool. He reminds her that he did not choose Steffy over her; Hope did say no. She agrees that it was not fate or bad luck. They made the only decisions they could at the time. He doesn’t feel this talk has exactly settled everything, but she admits it will get easier each time they see each other. He wonders if that is what they want to do – forget what they lost.

Steffy and Taylor meet up with Thomas as he’s on the Skyroof treadmill. Steffy scoffs that he’s all hot and sweaty and she wanted to show him some proofs. They agree to stay and look at them over lunch. They have lunch and Taylor looks over the proofs and tells Steffy they are very elegant. Thomas comments that he is sure that Steffy is probably ticked that their dad named him CEO. She says no, if she were ticked, he’d know! She doesn’t want to be in charge; just work that satisfies her and the authority to get it done. She doesn’t want to work so hard that she can’t enjoy life. Bill asks what is the name of this little game show – Let’s Make a Threat? Brooke says no one is making a threat, they just think Liam and Hope have a right to know. Caroline explains that is information they need to know before making decisions in the dark. Bill says they can try to hold him responsible for the demise of a relationship that wasn’t supposed to happen in the first place, but that ain’t gonna happen. He doesn’t concede to anything. Deacon might have even shown up in Italy on his own. Hope would have still been late to the church and Liam would have turned to Steffy for comfort like he always does. He wonders if Brooke blames him too. She says it doesn’t matter. There is enough blame to go around and it’s too late now. Marriage is no cure. She should know as she’s done it enough time. Perhaps Liam and Hope just need to figure it out on their own. Bill tells them not to put words in his mouth. He never said he did nothing wrong, but Rick played a big part in it too after the wedding in Italy. Bill will admit that he betrayed his son by not keeping his promise not to interfere, but now Miss Holier Than Thou wants to sever that relationship he has with his son. He won’t let that happen. Caroline and Rick are glad to be getting back to their offices. There is more to this whole matter than she realized. Maybe she is too naïve. But if Hope gets any sadder or lonelier then she doesn’t know how she can stand by and say nothing. Bill asks Brooke if she thinks he is a terrible person. She’s coy and not sure she can answer that now. That works with his theory – any woman who has seen him naked can’t completely hate his guts. She chuckles and says she is so comfortable with people who like themselves and he certainly has mastered that. Then she mentions the kiss, but she is not in agony with guilt, but circumstances have changed. He agrees that yes they have, but he’d be lying if he didn’t say it was nice. Brooke says it was a unicorn, the last of it’s kind. It was magical, but never to be spoken about again.
