The TV MegaSite's Wednesday 1/23/13 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

With their faces only inches apart and Bill caressing Brooke’s cheek, she says his name to stop him from probably kissing her. He rants that Katie should not have left him again……and all over one lousy drink. Brooke reminds him that it’s an issue and he couldn’t do the one thing Katie did not want him to do tonight. He says he is so sick of hearing Katie say that she wants him to be the best man he can be. He rants again that he does not have a drinking problem. It is Katie; she is over reacting. Brooke tells him to stop it. Katie and her child are counting on him. Her relationship with her sister is sacred. That is why she arranged this romantic evening, but Bill couldn’t do the one thing that Katie wanted him to do. He counters with it is so damned frustrating and again that Katie is over reacting. When Bill moves closer, Brooke tells him that Katie is her sister and she’s always looked up to Brooke. There is no way she would ever do anything to jeopardize that relationship. Bill says he understand that. He promises he will make it up to Katie. He wants to make this work and asks Brooke nicely if she will please help him get through this. Brooke says of course she will. He says it will all be okay if Katie would just try to stop fixing him. Brooke says they will be just fine. Katie is probably waiting for him right now to kiss and make up…..”so giddy-up Stallion, ride home to your wife.” Dayzee is shocked as the young lady tells her that her name is Maya. She helped out in the homeless shelter several years ago and now she has come back for her baby. It’s been so long since she went away and since Maya has kissed or held her little girl. If Dayzee will just tell her where she is, that is all she will ever ask of her. She doesn’t want to talk about prison or her court appeal. She is sorry that Dayzee did not receive her letters or e-mails. And even her own family turned against her and did not want her to come to L.A., but what is the use of voice and dance lessons if you are gonna play it safe. She reminds Dayzee that she never once judged her. She was the one friend everyone could turn to. Maya says when she had to go away to prison, her own parents were not an option nor any friends so she had no choice but to give up her baby. Like an angel, Dayzee came to her rescue and found a good home for her, but now she is back and ready to be a good momma. Liam and Hope are cuddled on the couch, laughing and giggling, talking about having some popcorn. She says this is what they were robbed of, nights like this and so much more. She knows the microwave beeper is driving him crazy so she kisses him and says she will go get the popcorn and be right back. She is barely out of the room when there is a knock at the door. It’s Taylor and she doesn’t even give him a chance to say no; she walks on in and says she needs to talk to him and hopes he is alone. She’s almost shocked when Hope emerges and says don’t let her stop her from saying what she came to tell Liam. Taylor berates her for barely letting Steffy out of their sights before Hope makes her move on Liam. Hope reminds her that Steffy would do the same thing. Taylor says things have changed. Hope says yes they have as now she and Liam know the truth. Taylor says Hope has had many changes before and something always comes up to break them up again. Hope says it also was wrong for Steffy not to tell Liam what she knew. Taylor wonders if she is asking too many questions. Hope says yes, but it is understandable. She is only protecting her daughter. And Taylor suggests that Brooke is doing the same thing. What they all need to do is sit down and talk this out. She realizes they have been victims of things that Bill orchestrated to keep them apart. That’s unfortunate, but it is not going to change the bond that Steffy and Liam have now. Liam just looks on and can’t get a word in edgewise; cat’s got his tongue. Taylor leaves.

There is a damper on the evening for Liam and Hope. She even feels like there was more that Taylor wanted to say but she held back. She doesn’t want what just happened or how she and Brooke may have it out to come between her and Liam. Brooke slips back into her house and is stunned to find Taylor inside. She hopes Brooke wasn’t spying on Bill and Katie. She asks Brooke if she is sure she arranged this evening out of pure love for Katie or out of guilt. She’s trying to give her some good, free advice. She knows how she feels about Bill. Brooke reminds her again that she loves her sister and would do nothing to hurt her. Taylor also says she came to tell Brooke that she asked her recently to talk to Hope about staying away from Liam, but she was just there and Hope was there. They were trying to have a very cozy evening by the fireplace so she knows Hope is very delusional. Brooke says she will tell her one more time – Hope is an adult and Brooke can not tell her what to do. She can not control her any more than Taylor can control Steffy. Taylor says this is not about control. It is about motherly advise and Brooke needs to give Hope some before she sets herself up for a huge disappointment. Brooke asks if there is something that Taylor is not telling her. Taylor also wonders the same. She wonders if Hope and Liam have done anything yet. Brooke says no, but they could at any time. Taylor barks this is exactly what Brooke did to her marriage to Ridge. She almost blurts it out that Steffy too will have a family. She does tell Brooke this is not going to happen. Hope is not going to do to her daughter what Brooke did to her. It ends now! Dayzee tries to explain to Maya that she signed papers so she can not make the adopted couple hand over the little girl. The system does not work like that. Angrily, she hands Dayzee her cell phone number and says if she does not hear from her, she will be back. Hope sees this exchange and asks Dayzee about it. Dayzee says Maya was one of her clients.
