The TV MegaSite's Thursday 1/17/13 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam tells Brooke that she is asking a lot of him and he’s the man in the middle. She says she can not support him and Hope unless he makes a firm commitment. He doesn’t mean to take offense, but he doesn’t feel that he has anything in common with her ex-husband so she should not try to put him in those shoes. She reminds him that he has hurt her daughter over and over again and she wants to make sure that doesn’t happen again. He may love both women, but he can’t be with both of them. He admits that he doesn't want to live in a world without both women. Steffy is a fun girl and lets him be who he is, no questions asked. But when he looks at Hope, she is just there and it fills the room. Maybe he needs to be more than he is to be with her. He’s a rich man’s son who doesn’t have to want for anything, but maybe he should strive for more. Pam makes martinis for Eric but he’s a little down and suggests that she not do this again. He keeps making the martinis every day and talking to Stephanie, but he needs to put that aside. He doesn’t need Pam to stay there and help him. Perhaps it is time for her to go. She’s hurt. He says they have the left-behind two halves of a person that they are trying to put together. It isn’t going to work. Bill misses his malt scotch and Katie happily tells him that it is taking a little vacation. He’s miffed and wants to know what gave her permission to do that. She reminds him that they agreed he needed a little help with his anger management. He counters he did not agree to that. That was her and her female posse that ganged up on him. She says they have to start somewhere and a little jewelry isn’t going to do it. He gets sarcastic and dramatic and she continues to reprimand him that she did not pour it down the drain but put it away where it is controlled in a good climate. He reminds her that he is not an alcoholic and now she is asking him to be a good boy and he might get a toddy at night. She lectures that she doesn’t want to say these things to him, but he gives her no choice. All of these people are real people with real needs and feelings that he needs to deal with. Bill calls Brooke while she is still at Liam’s; he says they need to meet and talk.

Eric tells Pam they have adjustments to make, but he's not sure they can do them together. She tells Eric to please let her stay. It’s terrible to be alone so it won’t hurt them to be miserable together. He says he broke Stephanie’s heart so many times and left her so many times, and she would never do that to him. Bill and Brooke meet at the cabin and he rants about his problems with Katie. He wants Brooke to talk to her sister as Katie doesn’t trust him any more and it seems Brooke is the only one that doesn’t totally think he is a monster. He pours himself a stiff drink just to prove a point. Brooke can’t stop him, but she realizes their conversation has come to a screeching halt. She says she will talk to Katie. Pam tells Eric abut the bluebird she saw on Christmas Eve. It was her miracle; her sister was still with her. Eric says then he wants his miracle too, but Stephanie is dead. He wants his girl back…the one with the long hair and the crooked smile on her face like a snake and the shoulders that carried the world. It’s not fair. He wants that girl back and he’d do things so much differently now. He breaks down in Pam’s arms and lays his head on her lap and weeps.
