B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope tells Liam that Steffy is going to try to get pregnant again right away, but it doesn’t have to be that way again….if they could only turn back their own clock. He admits there are so many things that he can’t say to Steffy, so it’s really nice to have Hope there. Steffy tells Taylor that, of course, Hope would feel that way that she is trying to trap Liam again, but she knows that Liam wants a child, too. Taylor tells her that wearing black on her wedding day was not an omen. She needs to put that in the past. Steffy screams but it did happen. She got on the bike regardless that Liam told her not to. Taylor warns her that having another baby right away won’t necessarily help things. But she can make a memorial box and put things in it and then put it away. She will always have her memories.

Both Rick and Bridget are curious why this family pow-wow by Brooke. Eric is happy to see Bridget and they fill each other in all the news. She was surprised to hear about Taylor. Eric says it caught everyone off guard but she’s very important to him and he would never want to do anything to hurt or disappoint her. He throws a look to Brooke when he says that. Rick has a great idea – both his mom and dad are single now so they could get it on again. Liam tells Hope that he needs to go as Steffy shouldn’t be alone this long. She says again that he can still choose to have the life that he wants. Brooke drags out the family photo albums showing her marriage to Eric and then their wonderful children. She claims she was so happy then, both in Eric as a husband and a father. This means so much to her. As Liam comes home, he finds Steffy crying while making her memory box.
