AMC Recap Written by Gisele

Celia rebels against her mystery guardian trying to keep her in line and orders Evelyn to tell him that, at 18, she wants her own life whether he likes it or not. Assuring her she's not afraid of him, Evelyn promises to speak to Celia's guardian, so she won't have to go sneaking around. Adam surprises Brooke with a big kiss to thank her for "last night," which was pretty wonderful. Opal walks in on the two lovebirds and urges them to get a room. Pete is next through the open front door and gets a big hug from Brooke, who promises Adam that she will speak to Winifred about the lax security. Opal wants her son to talk to Adam before making any major decisions about Cortlandt Enterprises. From what he's read in the papers, Adam doesn't think Pete needs any advice, but gives him the name of a lawyer. Pete and Opal don't agree on how long he'll stay in Pine Valley. Pete walks out just as Celia arrives to work with Brooke about the Miranda Center. Opal is pleased to meet Celia and deletes the file she'd been working on just to keep her around more and, hopefully, keep Pete in town. After he dismisses the lawyer, Pete returns to Cortlandt Manor but Celia's already left, much to Opal's dismay. Pete retrieves Celia's file and looks forward to seeing Brooke's assistant again. Celia is disappointed when Evelyn is not able to gain her more freedom and that she has to quit volunteering at the Miranda Center, but if she tried to leave, she would have nowhere to go.

At the hospital, Cara nearly has a stroke when she sees David go down a hallway. She and Griffin take refuge in a room where he accuses her of not having let David go after all these years. She kicks herself for not having confronted David herself instead of sending him a letter about her miscarriage. Griff thinks she had no choice but to lie to him about her baby. Panicked, Cara wants to leave right away, but she has a commitment to a patient with cancer. David is pleased to run into Angie and thanks her for speaking on his behalf to the parole board. She couldn't stand the thought of him being locked up for what was, in her opinion, an "accident." Angie wishes David would have gone somewhere else and avoid other people's negative reactions to his return, but he has unfinished business which he can't let go. Angie shares her sadness at Lucy now living in Oregon with Maya but decides to concentrate on the good in her life. David understands he's not the only one who's lost someone he loves. Angie tells David that Cara left the hospital after her miscarriage to return to "Doctors Without Borders" but now she's back. Before Cara can make her getaway to Puerto Rico, David confronts her about what she did. Jesse doesn't believe that Cassandra would just take off when she knows her family is waiting for her. Zach arrives to clue Jesse in on who picked up Cassie at the airport. He speaks of a Russian mob, Koslov, who threatened his family and caused Kendall to leave him out of fear. Zach is sure they're not going to stop until they get what they want -- his casino. Meanwhile, a Russian named Vlad brings a captive but defiant Cassie breakfast. When she kicks the tray away, he yells and hits her. As she's still not being "nice" to him, he decides to teach her a lesson. Angie walks in on Jesse and Zach working the phones and warmly greets her old friend.

B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Bill gives Katie a kiss and asks if she’d like to go to Forrester with him. Caroline would love to see her. Katie says no, she has a lot to do at the office. She will invite Caroline and her two moms over for dinner soon. Liam and Steffy walk in and Bill greets the happy couple. Liam and Steffy tell Katie that she looks good and they are glad she is out of the hospital. Bill says he’d like to stay and hear all about the honeymoon, but he’s late for a meeting at Forrester so he has to go. He warns Steffy to eat right and take care of that grandchild in there. Alone Katie tells Steffy that at one time she hoped things would turn out differently, but there is a baby now and she’s glad they are gonna be a family. She only wants good things for them and the baby in their marriage. There’s a meeting in Eric’s office of Taylor, Donna, Brooke and Hope. Donna just wants to go over some things for Caroline’s fundraiser. Taylor doesn’t mean it to be a slur but mentions she will get with Thomas but he is moving into the beach house since she doesn’t need it any more. She apologizes to Donna as she didn’t mean to throw that in her face. Then Donna throws one back to her by asking about Steffy being back today and that she's probably too busy and tired from pregnancy to come help out. There is an awkwardness in the air. Hope is the first to duck out. Brooke tells Taylor that Katie is better so she can stop with the insinuations. Brooke exits and leaves a little bombshell that why doesn’t Taylor go to her office every once in a while. Donna jumps on Taylor for harassing Brooke and Katie too. She’d like her to leave her sisters alone. Taylor remarks that she is only trying to look out for Katie. She is surprised that Donna doesn’t appreciate that. Donna says if Taylor would just keep at being Katie’s therapist that would be fine, but she’s crossed over that line. Taylor reminds her that Donna should be worried as Brooke can not respect boundaries and say no. Donna says considering Taylor’s history with Brooke she can understand why she would think that way. But she talked to both Bill and Brooke and they denied it. There was an attraction because Katie pushed them to that, but nothing happened. They did not cross the line. Just knowing what it would do to Katie, neither one of them would pursue their feelings of attraction.

Another awkward moment for Hope – she’s looking at some internet pix of Liam and Steffy when Steffy arrives in her office. Hope says she was just dropping off some things for Steffy to approve. Steffy is apologetic and says she knows how difficult this must be. She knows it will be difficult at first, but it doesn’t have to be forever. She wants them to be able to work together. They are family now and she doesn’t want to settle for just tolerating each other. She is offering her hand in friendship. Hope is shocked. She says Liam was gonna end up with one of them yes, but it was supposed to be Hope. Steffy took that from her so she doesn’t think she deserves her forgiveness. Brooke daydreams about her lovemaking/kisses with Bill. He walks in looking for Caroline. Brooke says she is probably in the showroom, but asks Bill not to leave. Brooke asks Bill about Katie and he mentions all is well and that she is spending the day at the office. Brooke wants more details as to how he is getting along with Katie. He replies better and better. In fact he is turning down Caroline’s offer for help so he can spend the day with Katie. Brooke mumbles that is as it should be, but then tells him that she just can’t help but think about what they shared together. She doesn’t know how she will get him out of her mind. She asks if he thinks about it. He says yes but they can’t go there again. He touches her hair, her face and gives her a hug……a very long hug just as Donna is about to open the door wider and spies them. She clears her throat so they will hear her coming. Bill says he was looking for Caroline but now has to leave. Donna walks a fine line to try and gather information from Brooke about how she loves her sister and would never hurt her…..and……she has grown closer to Bill but would never cross that line. Brooke turns her back to Donna while silently weeping. Donna continues that if Brooke had done anything that Donna would be able to tell just by the look on her face. Slowly Brooke turns around and Donna goes OMG, she did!
