B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Down on her knees outside the house, Steffy tells Liam they are not over. When he says it is, she says there is nothing back there in the house for her. He says he loved this place once, he loved their life but most of all he loved her. He turns and starts to walk away and she grabs him by the arm and pleads with him not to leave her. Wyatt won’t say yes or no but Katie pretty much guesses with Bill giving Liam the house then he and Steffy might be pregnant. Liam shows up at the office. Bill welcomes him in and says he was looking for him. Liam says he went home to check on his wife. She’s okay as she always manages to take care of herself. Bill pulls out the papers giving Liam the cliff house. Liam asks if that seems like a fair trade to him. Then he wants to know about his mother. Bill says she was gorgeous, long flowing hair. Liam says kind of like Steffy. Bill agrees. Liam says they have the same type. Bill asks if something is bothering him. Liam says not really but he has always wondered why his mother wanted to protect him at all costs of finding Bill. He could not imagine what he did so terrible. Then when he did find him he was flawed but a good man so he thought his mother was wrong. He knows they never saw eye to eye but he truly was loyal to his family so he forgave him over and over because he believes in goodness and that everyone has goodness in them. But now he is the one who is admitting he was wrong. All he ever wanted was to be a father to a son or daughter and give them everything he never had. But even with this big house he never wanted to be like Bill. And now with this child it’s too late……oh he will not be a complete absentee father but he also will not be raising his child under the same roof. He tells Bill that yes his wife is pregnant and she even says the baby is not Bill’s.

Katie drops some papers off at Steffy’s but finds no one home and goes on inside. Then while just walking around making a phone call sees the DNA paternity test. Steffy walks in and wants to know what she is doing there and holding that paper. Katie tries to explain as Steffy snatches the paper from her hand. Katie says she knows she is pregnant; is she in trouble? Steffy tries to dismiss her by saying they will reschedule another meeting. Katie asks if Liam knows. Steffy breaks down crying. Katie goes to her and hugs her. Bill knows he is caught. Liam tells him just try to explain why he slept with his wife. Bill says he knows Liam has every right to be furious but Steffy tried to get away from him as fast as possible. She loves Liam. It is the greatest regret of his life what happened and it just can’t end like this. Liam starts walking away and says yes it can. Bill tries to stop him and Liam shoves him away. Liam tells Bill that he does not deserve him and do not ever say Steffy’s name again in his presence. He has his hand on the doorknob when Bill tackles him from behind and they end up tussling on the floor. Liam gets in a few good licks in Bill’s gut. But Bill has Liam in a strangle hold and tells Liam that he is going to have a baby and he is not going anywhere. He says over and over he is so sorry.
