B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Wyatt holds the diamond to Hope and says he promised her the diamond. It’s hers. All she has to do is say yes. Bill sits around and mopes but tells Alison that he will not lose Brooke over this. He will do whatever it takes to get her back. Alison says Brooke without a man is like a ship without a rudder, and Bill is that rudder. She will come back to him in time. The press ask Hope what she is going to do. Wyatt says he gave it to her once, now he is giving it to her in front of the whole world. She says yes she does accept it, the audience applauds…. but Liam glowers. He hears the press say romance and he walks out. Hope sees him and gives Wyatt the diamond to take over. She follows Liam. He wants to know what the hell was that? She told him she was going to give the diamond back. She begs him not to over-react on this. She was going to give it back. That was before she walked into a room full of media. Wyatt was just working the room; he’s really good at that. She thought that was great in there. They need this. Liam rants that Wyatt did not give her that diamond for business. He thinks it has a hold on Hope. If it doesn’t, then she needs to tell Wyatt and - she has to give it back to him right now. Wyatt tells the audience that Ricardo was a man of great class and he’d like to take a moment of silence in his memory. Aly pouts and tells both Ivy and Oliver that Wyatt is using the diamond to get Hope back. Ivy agrees it was disrespectful of Wyatt, and Liam should not put up with this. Hope keeps telling Liam this is not about Wyatt and her. This is all about publicity. Liam says she can’t be that naïve. She says Wyatt knows they are going to be married. He says all the more reason that it is so inappropriate. She says she is sorry. She guesses they are just seeing this differently.

Deacon tells Brooke that he used to be like that too – fire at will and forget the consequences. But that got him in a lot of trouble and he gave it up. Now he’s the model citizen. And the difference in him and Bill is that he paid his debt. Bill comes out of the cesspool and smells like cheap cologne. He has never gotten payback for what he did to Brooke, Katie or Hope. Brooke fell in love with him, Hope forgave him and Katie gave him back is company. He is the one who needs to be taught a lesson. Brooke says he is learning. Deacon says he has never seen her like this, not even with Ridge. Bill has certainly raised the bar. Brooke says yes it was a stupid, reckless act but he did not try to kill Ridge. Brooke tells Deacon that she appreciates he brought Bill to their attention. He needed to be exposed. Bill walks in and accuses Deacon of missing his parole officer, so beat it. Deacon says at least he knocked first. They are both visitors now. Bill says he wants private time with Brooke. She asks why since there are no more secrets. And if it had not been for Deacon she would still be believing Ridge was delusional and Bill did that to someone she loved. Bill tells Brooke okay fine he will say it in front of the stooge. He screwed up. He made a mistake. He’s human. Deacon utters that is debatable. Brooke says what he did was also criminal and then he made it worse by lying to her about it as if he knew nothing. He says what was he supposed to do, just stand there and wave goodbye to Ridge and turn the other cheek? Deacon brings up the snapshot and Bill tells him to go to hell. He tells Brooke to please butt out Deacon or he will have to take him outside and remind him of the cellblock dates. Brooke barks they both need to shut up. Deacon is a guest in this house just as Bill is. Bill says he’d like to think he is more than a guest. They have to get past it. He lists again how far they have come and they can’t let this tear them apart. They have sacrificed too much and he can’t wait any longer. He wants her to marry him. Wyatt walks up outside the office so he can hear that Hope says her line needs this. No one is playing her. She will wear it for publicity only, that is it. She says other than that it means nothing. She is committed to him. He still continues how disrespectful and insulting it is to him….how the press ate it up when they tied in the romance. And make no mistake, that will be their story. Wyatt chooses then to walk in and all happy face says Hope is back in the news. Liam says yes and doing what he does best – manipulating. Wyatt says the press can not be manipulated. Liam says not the press; he is talking about Hope. Wyatt asks Hope if she feels manipulated. Liam jumps in when Wyatt says he was working the room; he was beating the drums. The press will be talking about this for six months and sales will skyrocket. Liam accuses him of working it to get Hope and his fiancé should not be accepting diamonds from another man. Period! Wyatt is hitting on her because he thinks he has another chance. He needs to know if he does. Hope says no. Liam says okay then this is what needs to happen. She has to fire him and give the diamond back and this time he will accept nothing less.
