AMC Recap Written by Lisa

Colby gasped when JR had a scary look on his face as she was bemoaning her father's neglect and Brooke's takeover of Chandler. Joe was alerted that Cara's prescription pad was stolen and was used for steroids. Cara figured out why JR lashed out at everyone at the gala and confronted him when he came to see her and Oliver at the hospital. He was the one that stole her prescription pad and broke her trust.

Pete went to Jane to help with his date with Celia. While waiting for her son, Opal looked at a picture of Celia on his phone and had a vision of her as a little girl then red blood splattered all over the screen. When Pete sat down with her, Opal tried to talk him out of committing to one person. After not getting anywhere, she wished him luck and a great time with Celia. After having another nightmare about a strange man, Celia met with Dixie to see if she could help. Dixie promised to help and keep her visits a secret. Little did they know, Colby was lurking around and overheard enough to launch a plan to botch up Celia and Pete. Colby went so far as to get Opal's help to do that. When she got back, Evelyn came to Celia's room, showed concern, and didn't believe her excuses why she was not at the television station. Evelyn called Celia's guardian to keep him up to date.

B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Brooke says everything she says seems to be wrong. Brooke says Katie is still refusing to take responsibility for her actions. Katie says no, she will accept her own but she is refusing to take blame for Brooke’s actions. Taylor tried to warn her that Brooke would steal Bill away if she didn’t watch out. Brooke betrayed her in the worst possible way. And she guesses her paranoia and insecurities were right on track since her own sister and husband can’t keep their hands off of each other. Brooke offers that Katie just wants to feel sorry for herself….poor maligned Katie and she wants everyone else to feel the same. Well, Brooke says she is sick and tired of listening to Katie be the victim. Wyatt pops in on the lovebirds and asks how does bar-b-que sound for dinner. Trying to sound okay with it, Liam unfolds from Hope and says he has food he can cook. Wyatt insists. He will just run down to the market and get some ribs, chicken and some veggie burgers, and Liam and Hope can just sit and enjoy. Liam gives in and says okay, he’ll get him some cash. Wyatt says no need; Bill gave him a credit card the day he moved in. But he didn’t buy him a mansion on the beach so that probably means he still likes Liam better. Liam wants to smile or laugh but can’t. Before he leaves, Wyatt asks if they want him to move his things out so Hope can have his room. Liam says no, his room is Hope’s room now. Wyatt acts surprised and says he just thought everybody would want their own space. Hope chimes in and says thank you but she will be all right not having her own space…..the closer to Liam she is the happier she will be. Wyatt says that is very beautiful and someday he HOPES someone will feel that way about him. Again Liam is not sure how to take that. Katie tells Brooke that thank God they can finally drop the sisterly pretense that she was on her side. Brooke says she was on her side and still is but Katie has been so unreasonable and erratic. One week she is kicking Bill out of his office and home and the next she is inviting him back in. Bill walked out because of what Katie did, not her. Everything is a test for Katie. She takes off her rings and says she wants a divorce, over and over again. And guess what, she didn’t even mean it. Brooke says she is not going to play that little game with her anymore. And she will not stand here and listen to this abuse to Bill. Katie scoffs. Brooke says she is calling it abuse because that is exactly what it is. Wyatt returns with a catered affair. He says why bother when Malibu has it all prepared. He tells Liam though that he’s still not quite sure where his place is here. He doesn’t know which dishes to use or what might be for special occasions. He doesn’t know which rooms he can go into and he doesn’t want to be obnoxious and start grabbing things. Liam says they are brothers so it’s also his house. Wyatt says not really. Liam's been living here a while and it’s his furniture and stuff on the walls. And now Hope is moving in and he’s really happy for them, but if it’s his home too then why wasn’t he asked. Liam ponders and says Wyatt is right. It makes him feel like a guest and not family. Liam says okay, here’s the rules. Anything he has is Wyatt's. Anything…..well except Hope. She stifles a giggle. Wyatt quips he knew there was a catch.

Katie says she guesses she needs to apologize for abusing Bill. Brooke adds that she stopped expecting that from Katie many years ago. Over the years Katie always blamed herself for things she had no control over like in Stormie’s death. Katie would cry, wring her hands and squeeze pity out of anyone who would listen. And now for things that she created and did, like kicking Bill out of the house, she claims pure innocence. She tells Katie that she never really knew her sister and the reason was she really never cared. She treated all of them like that and didn’t care except for what she could get. And they put up with it because she was the youngest. Sometimes it was cute and even precious, but it is not precious anymore. Katie needs to stop blaming other people for things she can fix. Otherwise it is just a big waste of time. Katie smiles and says she certainly doesn’t want her life to pass her by. Since she needs to get wise perhaps Brooke can educate her. Katie says she wants her marriage back so she wonders what her big sis would do. Brooke reminds her that she is a little too close to the situation and she didn’t exactly go unscathed herself, she lost a child. Katie mocks her and Brooke says she is not going to feel guilty for loving someone. Katie says that is the problem. Brooke is so hypercritical and tells Katie that she should fix her marriage when Brooke has no intention of letting that happen. Katie says she actually sees Brooke now a lot better than she thinks she does. She wants to know how many times has Brooke fell in love….how many weddings…how many times has she followed her heart to her destiny. Bill is her new destiny? Or maybe Brooke just wanted Bill because he was Katie’s. For the first time in her life she had someone who loved her and chose her. And she wants Brooke to know the next time that he tells Brooke that he loves her, he said that to Katie first and those feelings don’t just go away. And if Brooke hears a little voice in her head to if she can trust Bill, better get used to it as that is what it means to be loved by Bill Spencer. So she can do everything she can, use all her tricks and talents to make other women’s men fall at her feet, but just remember that he’ll never be completely hers. Wyatt is surprised that Liam and Hope are calling it an evening so soon. Then he realizes they aren’t going to the bedroom to sleep. On his laptop he looks at the bios of both Liam and Hope. Katie hears the baby crying and says she misses Bill too, but she will get him back. At home, Brooke takes off her earrings and sees something in her mirror. It’s Bill coming out of the shower in only a towel. She asks what he is doing here and he replies coming home to her. They are starting their life together. She tells him she can not do this. He wonders what her Plan B is. She says he needs to go back to his wife. She thinks Katie has learned her lesson this time. He says Brooke hasn’t been listening. He’s turned the page; he is done. He is there with her. He continues that he did everything he could to make Katie happy. She doesn’t want to be happy. And now she is aiming it all at Bill. He is the target. He makes a comparison to how big, strong lifeguards drown – they try to save people who drag them down with them. He’s not going to do that. It’s been too long since Brooke was in love; it’s not natural. So she can kiss him or tell him that she doesn’t love him and not mean it – that is her two choices. Hungrily they kiss and fall into bed.
