The TV MegaSite's Thursday 1/8/15 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Maya looks at Rick while he is waking up. She tells him she can not believe this, they are sleeping in this bed, sharing their life together out in the open. They can hold hands and kiss in public, no more hiding or sneaking around or people calling her a gold digger. He says no one will call her that again as she is officially under his protection now. She asks how long they can stay. Rick says what with the electrical and plumbing upgrades it could take a while. And his dad might be gone for a couple of months. He does not want her to feel intimidated; just be comfortable. Lady of the house; that would be a long way from where she has come. Rick says something tells him that she will adjust. She says this is crazy. He is CEO and they are going to run the company and live in this house, it can’t get any better. Pam is in the house and questions Aly and Ivy that they had to spend the night in a hotel. Ivy says yeah that Rick and Maya wanted a private place on their first night. And it’s not just for one night as Maya has moved in. Then they all look up and say Oh My God. They see Maya’s portrait instead of Stephanie’s. Caroline wakes up on Liam’s couch. He muses that bar-b-que and coffee is about the extent of his talents. She says she calls in a mean takeout. He says that will work. She apologizes for landing on his doorstep like this. He tells her don’t be. He’s sorry for the circumstances but happy for the company as it is lonely rattling around in this big old house. She can’t believe she has been kicked out of her own house. Maya stole her husband. Liam says she is welcome to stay as long as she needs. She says no offense to her cousin but this might be the shortest stay in history. She is not giving up on her marriage. He says that is the Spencer in her; they are pretty stubborn. He says judging by his past behavior he is the last one to judge. He says she is fighting for something she already has; Maya is the interloper. Caroline says she underestimated Maya at first but she won’t do that again. She is clever and dangerous. And not just for Rick but what he has – the power, the money, the house and the family. Maya is a social climber but not on her husband’s back. Pam says her eyes must be playing tricks on her but isn’t that Maya up there instead of Pam’s sister…..Stephanie’s place of honor. Ivy says not to worry when Rick sees it he will have it taken down. In walks Rick and says good morning. They ask about the portrait and he says it is beautiful, captures the twinkle in Maya’s eyes. He likes it and that is why he put it there. Pam says how dare he disrespect her sister like this. He says he is not. It’s about him running the company and the family. Pam huffs did Eric sign off on Rick sleeping in his bed and putting his mistress on the wall. Rick says his dad does things differently of course, but while Rick is here he is the man of the house and he’d like it to reflect that. He tells Pam that he doesn’t need hers or anybody else’s permission to do what he wants. This is his family home. Pam scoffs okay sleep in that bedroom with Maya; sleep in any bedroom with Maya as it isn’t going to last anyway so that is what is most upsetting exchanging the portrait for one of a home-wrecker. Rick spouts that Stephanie played favorites. That would be Ridge, the same man who destroyed his marriage that he was supposed to value so much. He did not want to come downstairs and look at her portrait every day so he hung a beautiful picture of Maya. When Eric comes home he will put Stephanie’s back up. Until then Maya stays, end of discussion. After the ladies are gone, Maya comes down and says she heard voices. He fills her in on the portrait and she agrees that Pam may have had a right to be upset. He says they can do what they want under his roof and he likes the picture and doesn’t give a damn who disapproves. He wants his lady to grace the walls and the world will have to deal with it. Ivy tells Aly that she sees a method to Rick’s madness. He is only trying to get back and even with Caroline.

Liam asks Caroline to explain to him what this thing with Ridge is so strong that she bulldozed her marriage. She finds it hard to explain. She says he is a very powerful man, intellectually, creatively and physically but she did not think she was that vulnerable. She was happy in her marriage and Rick was everything to her. But there was chemistry the first time that Ridge touched her hand. She tried to explain it to herself that this was normal in the excitement of creating with him. It was sort of like hero worship. But that only goes so far and there was this electricity between them she could not explain. And Ridge started feeling it too and that is when she should have stopped. But she admits she did not want to; she was all in. She wanted Ridge to kiss her and know how it felt to be in his arms. And if she is painfully honest she was not thinking of her marriage. It was like the last thing on her mind. But that is all behind her now and she is only focused on getting her husband back. Liam says he respects her decision and he’d like to weigh in here. He says again that he respects her decision but at some point she might have to do like he did with standing up for pride and dignity and that might mean letting go. Caroline tells Liam that he is her cousin and she loves him but his advice she can not take today. She calls Rick and wants to talk. He says nothing has changed but when she insists he invites her to the house. Liam asks if Maya is there. Caroline says probably glued to the walls already. She says it doesn’t matter as Maya will be gone soon. She will get her husband back and she will not let him go this time. Caroline arrives at Rick’s and asks if Maya is there. He says yes so she suggests they talk outside. He says no, unless it is going to be long and drawn out Maya is upstairs and Caroline will not see her. She says she did not like the way they left it earlier. Basically she goes over all they have discussed before – she made a mistake , one she will not make again and wishes she could take back. Rick leads her further into the living room until it is obvious. She sees the portrait and is so shocked that she drops and breaks her glass.
