The TV MegaSite's Friday 1/17/14 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Katie shows up unexpectedly at Brooke’s. She tells her that Bill visited her at her office and wants her back. Brooke tells her she is happy for her. This is what Katie wanted. Katie seems to feel that Bill’s words came straight from Brooke. Brooke says Bill takes orders from no one. Katie says she knows he was lying. She can’t believe Brooke would want that for her. Brooke argues that she just wants Katie to be happy with a man that she loves and married. Katie adds……”and wants you.” Ridge sketches and Caroline comes in and thinks it is grand. Rick asks Ridge if he is the reason that his mom is not coming in to work much anymore. Ridge answers that he doesn’t think so but Rick needs to ask her. He’s talked to her a few times. Rick says he always thought actions speak louder than words. Before they finish they are interrupted by Bill who opens the door and waltzes in. He says he is a major shareholder so just protecting his interest every now and then. He makes sure that Rick is treating Caroline right and she says he is. Bill then says he actually came to see Ridge, so Caroline senses they may need some alone time and she spirits Rick out of the office. Bill tells Ridge they make the best croissants in Paris and if he hurries he can make the last flight there. Ridge says he can’t help but wonder why his place of residence is any concern of Bill’s. And Bill says he can’t help but wonder why Ridge can’t put down that little pencil and look him in the eye. Ridge lays the pencil down and looks right at Bill and declares that Bill hasn’t given up yet on Brooke. Bill says that is a personality trait of his for sure. And Ridge is not being an obstacle but more like a tease or a spoiler. And then he sniffs the air and turns up his nose and wants to know what that smell is. Oh yeah, it’s that stench of Ridge's superiority that comes off of him that everyone around him is defective. So if he’s going back to Paris he is just suggesting he speed that process along. Ridge says he lost him somewhere in that last statement. Ridge says so Brooke is done with Bill. This conversation has nothing to do with Ridge but is all about Bill. Brooke wants Bill to go back to Katie. He announces he is busy and jumps up.

Bill continues and Ridge cuts him off again and tells him that he misunderestimates just how repulsive he is and what he stands for. Ridge shakes his head and says Bill’s hands on his wife, that keeps him up at night. Bill says due to the very sensitive nature of Ridge but he was not there, so he does not know how it went down between him and Brooke. Ridge says then there is nothing more to say, because if Bill thinks there is a certain set of circumstances where it is justified that he dumps his sick wife and sleeps with her sister then they are not on the same planet. Bill tells Ridge to whoa and back up. He wants to know if this is the same self-righteous high horse that he was riding a year and a half ago when he dumped his wife on their honeymoon over a text. He says he went to Katie and tried to repair the damage and return to his family. He thinks that is more than Ridge has tried to do to repair his. Bill asks Ridge if he has slept with Brooke yet. Ridge doesn’t answer. Bill goads him that it’s all right. They are just two guys talking. Ridge still doesn’t answer, he just glares. Bill smirks and says he didn’t think so or Ridge wouldn’t be here playing this coy little game; he’d be gloating. Ridge says Bill knows him too well. Bill reminds him that Ridge couldn’t bear to touch what he had touched. He can’t believe that Ridge would walk away from a woman like that over little old him. This is a whole new power that even he didn’t know he had. Ridge says they need to review. Katie doesn’t trust him and probably never will. Brooke knows what she wants and that doesn’t include Bill. And now he is sleeping on his son’s couch. He’s the poorest rich man he knows. Bill tells him to go, stay, Paris, Timbuktu, he really doesn’t care. He even says that he is not immune to looking down on people and the pleasures of that, but boy Ridge has elevated that to an art form. He’s just too good for this world. The rest of them have dirty hands and that will not do. As Bill leaves Ridge's office, Ridge says he thinks Bill should stay away from both women. Caroline leads Rick to the steam room where he laughs that it has certainly seen plenty of action. Katie tells Brooke that maybe she should just take her bitter pill and take Bill back just like Ridge is trying to do with her. But she cannot do that as he lied to her….and to Brooke. She wishes she could just wish that old feeling back, but she’s not Brooke. She’s so secure and falls in and out of love so easily. And if one doesn’t work out, it is okay as she knows there is another just around the corner. She cannot love like Brooke. For the longest time Bill was the one, the love of her life but he’s lost to her now. She keeps waiting for that man to show up. And she cries that Brooke is lost to her too. She is just trying to move forward in this life that she does not recognize and to make the best life she can in this life that she has left. Crying she runs out with Brooke unable to stop her. Katie runs right into the arms of Ridge who is walking up on the pavement.

Y&R Recap Written by Eva

Sharon is about to tell Nick the truth about what she did but she is interrupted by Jack who is upset with her, because she didn’t call him instead of Nick when Summer got sick. Sharon apologizes to Jack and tells him that she called several times after she got to the hospital, but he didn’t answer his phone. Stitch tells Jack, Nick, and Sharon that the drugs Summer took caused her to go into heart failure. Once they get the results of some tests they ran on Summer and the pills she took, they will know how to treat her condition. Jack and Nick argue because Nick doesn’t think Summer took drugs and Jack thinks that the stress caused by Phyllis’s illness and Nick’s lie about her real father made Summer want to take pills. Nick later tells Sharon that Jack is right; he should have told the truth sooner and maybe Summer wouldn’t be in this condition.

Chloe doesn’t take the news well and tells Chelsea she can’t take Connor away from her. Chelsea tells Chloe that she will always be a part of Connor’s life and that she should give her and Adam a year to get settled before she moves to Paris; in the meantime they can video chat.
