B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Pam is trudging a cart full of presents into Eric’s house when she hears a bird chirping. She is shaken to see a blue bird talking to her. She remembers Stephanie’s last words that she would always be there looking over her shoulder and looking out for Pammy. She’ll there just for “you”. Eric, dressed to the nines, enters a balcony seat at the theater/opera house. The attendant tells him this is highly against their rules but…..he brings out a champagne bucket and sits it before Eric. With a sad look on his face, Eric tells the man that he is sure his guest is already there. Bill holds Will while he feeds him and gives him a story about old Saint Nick and how he brings all the boys and girls useless junk which is broken by New Year’s Eve. But here’s the good stuff, the really good stuff like trust funds comes from mommy and daddy and not from rosy-cheeked strangers. Brooke, Thorne and Felicia are trimming the tree and wondering where Eric is. Kristen, Tony and Caroline urge Rick to turn on the Christmas tree lights. They ask about Hope and Brooke says Stephanie volunteered them to help at the homeless shelter again, but she just wasn’t up for it this year but Hope is there. Pam rushes in with her exciting news that she saw a bluebird outside and it was Stephanie. After some raising of eyebrows, they all say they believe her. Marcus, Dayzee and Donna join them and Pam has to tell them all that Eric wants them all to have a wonderful evening with dinner, but he won’t be here. Eric shakes up the pitcher of martinis, sets out two glasses and fills them complete with double olives and makes a toast to his “friend”. His heart is breaking and he’s about to cry. He hears the strains of the Celtic Woman singing “Danny Boy”, the way they did at Stephanie’s party. Suddenly he sees them on stage before him.

Pam tells the group that she is sorry but Eric just wanted to be alone tonight. They think that is a bad idea, he needs his family now more than ever. They get annoyed at Pam when they beg her to tell them where Eric is and she says she can’t. Felicia and Thorne look at each other, he goes and grabs the lemon bars and they both start throwing them one by one at the mirror until she finally confesses. Eric listens with a smile on his face now as CW sing “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”. With a heavy heart and a tear forming, he remembers happy moments of dancing with Stephanie, making her martinis and them snuggling in bed. He looks around and sees the whole gang behind him. Pam asks him to please not hate her and he says he doesn’t. Felicia says they lost their mother but please they do not want to lose him too. Eric’s tears flow as they tell him they love him. He realizes he needs them too. They all join in for a rendition of “White Christmas”. Stephanie fills the screen and wishes everyone a Merry Christmas, complete with bluebird on her shoulder.
