B&B Recap Written by Wanda

At Brooke’s Liam paces the floor and tells her that he’s been up all night. He’s been calling Hope, texting her and she is not answering or responding. Brooke says can he blame Hope – Steffy again. He says whoa; this is all just a big misunderstanding. Brooke says Hope did not come home last night and she does not know where she is. And Brooke probably wouldn’t even tell him if she knew. He says okay, be mad at him but do it later. He needs to find Hope now. He knows he has screwed up royally. Brooke wants to know what Steffy said or that Hope could have seen. Liam says nothing happened. He did not know Steffy was coming but she had incredible news. She can now have a baby. She got emotional and he gave her a hug, Brooke scolds him for things like this always happening with Steffy. Liam just needs to let Hope go and let her go be with someone who makes her happy. It dawns on him that Brooke is talking about Wyatt. He thought he had left town. In Hawaii Hope is in her hotel room looking out over the blue ocean. There is a knock at the door and it’s Wyatt. He is holding an orchid. He says he looked all over to find a flower that was worthy of her and this was the closest he could find. He wants to call room service for breakfast but Hope says she is good. Wyatt says okay then promise him she will have lunch with him. He doesn’t want her to get all light headed on him. He says they did not really talk much last night. Is she ready to tell him what she saw at the cabin? She says she saw Steffy in Liam’s arms. She doesn’t know what happened after that; she didn’t stick around. He says it’s okay; she will be okay as she is with him now. She’s safe. Hope says she didn’t stick around to hear more justifications or excuses or even the smug look on Steffy’s face… know the one that says see I can get him back anytime I want him. They were looking into each other’s eyes like they were the only ones on the planet. Wyatt asks if she saw them in the cabin. She says yes as Liam was getting dressed there. Wyatt doesn’t understand why Hope would be seeing Liam just before the wedding. She says it was Liam’s idea. He sent her a note to meet him. Wyatt says that doesn’t make sense since Steffy was there. Hope says Wyatt doesn’t know Steffy and that’s one of the things she likes about him. She says it’s obvious; it’s classic Steffy just wanting Hope to see them. She was letting Hope know that things haven’t changed. She will always be part of his life. Hope says she thinks she is just now understanding that…..message delivered, message received. Donna is shocked to find Quinn sitting in Eric’s office and sipping champagne. Donna says Quinn should be cleaning out her desk, not taking over Eric’s office. Looking smug, Quinn says guess the word is not out yet but Hope hired them back. QAJ’s is here to stay. Donna says she is calling security. Quinn says that would only accomplish two things. She would look incredibly foolish and she would piss Quinn off. Donna says then maybe Quinn can tell her what happened. Quinn says a terrible wrong was righted. Liam went on a power trip and Hope’s personal life spilled over into her professional. But power is fleeting and Liam’s is gone. Donna says this must have something to do with Hope walking out on the wedding. Quinn says Bingo. But it’s Hope’s story to tell. All she can tell Donna is that she does know where Hope is. She is with Wyatt and they are away and when they return they will be an item and will secure their position here. So Donna does not want to be on her bad side. Just be nice and respectful and everything will be fine. Cheers. Quinn pours herself another glass of bubbly and says life is fascinating. This time last year she and Wyatt were in their little warehouse, toiling away and struggling for survival. Now look at them. Partnering with FC on one of the hottest lines going; the possibilities are endless. But she guesses Donna would not feel like celebrating the return of the dreaded Quinn. Donna says she guesses that is in reference to Eric. Quinn admits that he likes her. Donna grins and says Eric doesn’t really know Quinn. Donna has a clearer picture. Quinn says it would not pay for Donna to try and sabotage her. Donna replies she has a feeling Quinn will not need help on that one. Quinn says she has worked far too long and too hard and things are finally paying off for her and Wyatt. Donna warns Quinn a word of advice. Hope and Liam have been here before. They plan a wedding and something always happens with Steffy. But here’s the thing; they always end up back together. Quinn gloats that there is always a last time for everything. Hope and Wyatt are on the beautiful island of Hawaii. It is the perfect opportunity for him to convince her to choose him. And her son can be very convincing. Brooke tells Liam that she can’t believe he let this thing happen. Just seeing Steffy there would devastate Hope. He snaps that she is acting like he set this in motion. He didn’t know Steffy was going to be there; she just showed up. He doesn’t even know why Hope was at the cabin in the first place. Brooke says because of the note that Liam sent. He argues that he did not send a note. Brooke says maybe Steffy then. Then he blurts out – that damn woman, Quinn. She has set him up again. Hope is mad right now but she has to come home and he will explain all that is going on right now. For now he is going to have it out with Quinn. Quinn offers Donna champagne but she declines. She tells Quinn that she likes Wyatt. He’s smart, funny, even handsome and some day he will make a lucky girl very happy. Quinn says that will be Hope; just look at how her eyes light up now that Liam is out of the picture. Donna says that is just it. He will be back in Hope’s life soon. They’ve had years of obstacles in their way and only came out stronger. Not just Steffy but Bill as well. They have overcome them all. Quinn says Hope and Wyatt are just at the beginning of their connection and they finally have the chance to do what they have been prepping for both personally and professionally which means QAJ is here for the long haul. She says she is a fact of Donna’s life so deal with it.

Wyatt says he won’t be a hypocrite. He’s not sorry that she did not marry Liam, but he is sorry that he got hurt. She says you live and learn. She just wishes she weren’t learning the same old thing over and over and over. Wyatt says Liam is the idiot. He treats her badly, always letting her down, betraying her trust and then takes her for granted that she will always be there. She shouldn’t have to put up with that. She agrees. Wyatt says it is a good thing she is not home as Liam would be there beating down the door trying to explain again. She says she knows. His explanations are always logical and innocent but to her they will always be unacceptable. Quinn pours another glass and Liam comes bounding in and says she set him up. He won’t even bother to explain it as she knows it all. She wrote the note. She says she knows he is upset over another derailed wedding to Hope and is looking for someone to blame. She adds but until he cools off she has absolutely no intentions of talking to him. He tells her she is not getting away with this. Quinn walks right past Donna and tells her to shut up. Brooke is happy to hear from Hope and that she is all right but Hope doesn’t want to say where she is. Brooke tells her Liam was just there so she knows all about Steffy, but there is something Hope should know. Hope doesn’t want to hear it now. She says she is exhausted and it always comes back to the same old thing – Steffy. Hope is just done. Wyatt says he has a great idea. How about they spend their holidays in Hawaii. Hope does not hesitate for a second and says yes. Liam talks to Donna and says he can’t prove it but his gut is screaming that Quinn sent the note. Donna says she wouldn’t put it past her as she was in here sitting in Eric’s office like she owned it drinking his champagne and bragging how Hope and Wyatt were in Hawaii. Liam bolts and tells Donna that he owes her one. Hope says she wanted to be so sure of Liam this time but she knows it is so wrong to get married as the result of an ultimatum. She says she tried to tell herself she was okay with Steffy but it will never be ok. Wyatt says then let Liam go in the past where he belongs. Wyatt can make her happy and she knows that. He says he has been patient and he was gracious in defeat, but Liam messed up again. Let this be the last time. He tells her that he loves her….more than he ever thought he could love someone. They are in Hawaii together now. There is no better place to start their lives. Just give them a chance; she won't regret it. He kisses her and then two or three more. When she puts her arm around his neck there is no engagement ring on her finger.
