The TV MegaSite's Monday 12/18/17 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam and Steffy hug as he says they are having a baby. He’s amazed and she says she never thought they would ever be saying this. Bill is transfixed off in space and Wyatt cannot get his attention. This is Liam’s job but as usual he is not around. Wyatt says it is like talking to a brick wall. Thorne tells Rick and Maya that Ridge is getting ready to make his move, but not this time if he can help it. Thorne says it is time they all stand up to him. It’s a big surprise when Thorne tells them that Ridge betrayed Brooke with Quinn. He does not deny he still has deep feeling for Brooke and he told her and hopes it is not too late. Rick says for what it is worth, he is on Thorne’s side and pulling for him. Meanwhile Ridge and Brooke are in bed with a satisfied look on their faces. He hands her the ring and says put it on her finger where it will stay forever. He wonders what Bill is up to since he is no longer reaching out to Brooke. He says he almost feels sorry for him as he knows how it feels to lose the woman you love and feel you should be with. Liam gloats again. It is official, they made a baby. While Wyatt it thinking Brooke, Bill is thinking Steffy when Wyatt says it is not in the cards now so he needs to completely let it go. Liam confides in Steffy that he does not want to dwell on it too much as he knows she had a previous bad experience but he’s got it all planned out – where the nursery is going to be and a swing set on the beach – he is ready. Then he apologizes and says he is being insensitive. Steffy is not talking and he should let her have some alone time and space to think about this moment.

Thorne stops by Brooke's and he notices the ring when Brooke quickly slips it off. She says she is not wearing it but she did say yes to Ridge. She does not want to put the ring on since she is still married to Bill but she would like to make it clear that she has every intention of marrying Ridge. She knows what Ridge did but she is just trying to get past that and get on with her life. He says well she has another three months or so and he will spend all that time trying to change her mind. Liam says he knows they are both worried but they should be happy right now and focusing on that. She cries that she will be happy and positive and make this baby the best time ever. She just hopes all goes the way it is supposed to. He bends down to the floor with his mouth by Steffyís stomach to talk to his baby about his amazing mother and life he will have. Again he beams to Steffy "this is ours."
