The TV MegaSite's Thursday 8/31/17 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam wants to hang around in Steffy’s office, not be in the way. He just does not feel like going to work after seeing Sally last night and all that she lost. She says she knows he does not want to talk about it but that he thinks his father was responsible. Liam says yes, he knows he was. Bill even told him. The doctor checks out Sally and says since her cough is almost gone and if she does not go back to work maybe she will release her today. However as soon as the doctor goes, Sally starts coughing again. Grams says what they need is a miracle……and in walks Thomas. Sally perks up but wants to cry at the same time. Thomas gives her a hug. Steffy asks Liam if he is saying arson. She thought it was an electrical wiring problem. Liam says it was and that is probably where Bill got the idea. His dad always hires the best people and even the electrical investigators will think as much unless someone says something. Ivy, Rick, Maya, Coco and RJ come rushing in and want to know about the fire. Maya says she was not her most favorite person but this is so unfair just the night before Sally’s big showing. Rick says call it karma or bad luck. Liam and Steffy just glance at each other. Rick says they should be looking around for someone to sue. Both Liam and Steffy say it was probably a faulty electrical wiring as the building is so old.

Brooke cannot believe Sally had no insurance and says they will never get back upon their feet. Only if maybe Thomas had stayed. Perhaps he can now set her up in another location and get back in the business. Thomas tells Sally that smoke can be dangerous so she needs to be careful. He gives her a hand-made heart with his two hands. Caroline walks into Bill’s office with Douglas. Brooke is happy to see them. But she says she is going to have to go or be late for work. So drop in later as she knows Steffy would like to see her. Caroline says it feels so good to be able to talk to someone who does not think she is dying. And Sally being torched........ Thomas is in love with her and deserves so much better than Caroline. Grams tells Thomas she is speaking for everyone that they are so glad he is back….she hopes he is back. Coco says Thomas and Sally probably would like some time alone. Sally tells him that even when things looked the bleakest and everything went up in smoke she told herself she still had Thomas. Brooke goes to work and says she was just at Bill’s office and his niece and her son were there. Thomas is here too but he did not come. She can only guess where he might be. Caroline says she never should have come to see Bill and she wants her miracle cure today before she leaves. Bill tells her it is too soon. She says hire an actor, pretend to be a doctor and cure her. Bill repeats again that it is too soon. Thomas is here still trying to rescue Little Orphan Sally so she has to give it more time. She could lose Thomas and if he gets mad enough she might lose Douglas as well. So none of this telling everyone that this is a lie. She will have Thomas raising Douglas with that crazy redhead. Sally asks about Caroline and Thomas says physically she seems fine but emotionally she is a wreck. Caroline seems to think that he is her only support out there. Even her moms do not know about her diagnosis. Sally says that is putting an awful lot on Thomas. She explains how she happened to be there and saw the place go up in smoke……and on the day her dream was to come true. And now she cannot see the future until she saw him walk through the door. Bill wants Caroline to tell him what is up with Thomas. She says he came to see Sally and if there was anything else he sure did not share it with her. She does not know what he is telling Sally. Sally asks Thomas if he is back. He tells her to pinch him to make sure he is real. She says she admires what he is doing for Caroline and Douglas and she was already in love with him but now he has this sunbeam around him. Not many men would have done what he did and then came back to check on her charred lungs and her rotten luck. She says she tries not to have expectations when it comes to him but the truth is she does. He’s going to be her champion and be there like he’s always been. She wants to know if that is still him or did that change when he left and is now with Caroline. She hates sounding needy but the truth is she is….and she needs to know if he is really back.
