The TV MegaSite's Tuesday 1/2/18 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

As Steffy panics, Liam stands there and asks why would a doctor order a paternity test – it was not needed. She darts inside to get some water. Rick tells Maya that Christmas was not the place or time to confront Ridge of what he did with Quinn. He has to go now but he will see her soon. Nicole asks if he needs some help and he says no. He knows they have both been checking in on Lizzie in the nursery, and he thanks her again for what she did. Carter stops long enough to say hello to Maya and seems to be sticking around and she asks him what is wrong. He says all is fine but she is not buying it. She begs him to talk to her. He says maybe it was the holidays and seeing her so happy. He remembers how he felt toward her when he found out. She is now a strong woman and he misses her. Justin quizzes Bill and says he could have Steffy if he tried but he is being loyal to his son. So he is a good father. And Bill has his loyalty and silence always. Bill says he will never let him down. He will be the father Liam thinks he is. Liam follows Steffy into the house and she dodges all his questions. She simply says she had a complete physical and tests and this was included. He cannot understand since paternity was never in question and not necessary. Liam says this is not a standard test so this should not be. She spars at him why was he in her purse in the first place. He guesses it – it must have been that night over one kiss with Sally. And she lied about the guest house. That must be where it happened instead she lied and said she was just driving. And then later they repeated their vows although she was hesitant. That must have been when it was; she was with someone. Steffy keeps saying this is not important so she does not know what he is asking. She had a purely simple complete physical and this showed up as part of it. They can forget it. Liam says no they can’t. He needs to know why this was included.

Nicole tries to talk Rick into taking Maya to Europe and not just focus on his career. Maya tells Carter that she is married and a mother. He says he knows but if she is honest she knows what they were to each other, and things happen. They had fun times and were great together. And if she thinks she is out of options, she is not. Bill tells Justin that Steffy gave him his son back and he is not going to blow that. Liam will bond with his baby from day one and he will not deny that. Steffy tells Liam that he does not understand. He hollers then make him understand. She says she did drive around and ended up at the guest house. She did not invite anyone; he just showed up. Liam says this him has a name; so tell him. Carter tells Maya that the last thing he wants to do is interfere with her marriage but he feels something is missing. Maya says Carter is sweet and she will always care for him but not romantically. She is very happy with Rick. Bill admits there was a powerful connection with Steffy but he locked his feelings away before and he will have to again. Liam and Steffy are probably celebrating right now and he will celebrate with them. Liam accuses Wyatt. She says it was not his brother. Steffy slowly says she lost her mind and she does not know how it happened. She tried to tell him but Liam wouldn’t let her so she tried to forget. He keeps on that he needs to know. They will never have a marriage if he keeps thinking she was with another man that night, so tell him who it was. He keeps badgering until she spills it. She says he does not really want to know but it was Bill. She cowers in fear as Liam’s head is about to explode.
