The TV MegaSite's Friday 1/5/18 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Both tussling on the floor, Liam tells Bill to get off of him. Liam tells him he’s already heard all the explanations that he is so terribly sorry; everybody makes mistakes and needs to be forgiven. Liam has heard it two, three and four times. Bill says he meant it when he said it but obviously he learned nothing. And if Liam walks out of his life he never will learn. Liam says he is not responsible for what Bill does; not anymore since he slept with his wife. Bill repeats again that he is so sorry and he does not have to forgive him but at least forgive Steffy and do not destroy his family or the baby she is carrying. Katie hugs Steffy but she asks her to go. Katie says she will not leave her like this. Surely she can call Ridge or even Liam and wants to know when he will be back. Steffy says he won’t. Katie says she knows a little something about DNA but she is not jumping to conclusions. Steffy says now she knows why Liam is not coming back. Katie says he is angry now but in time he will forgive her and she is carrying his baby and he owes her that much. She says Liam loves her so much and she cannot imagine anything she did that is so bad that it would change that. Liam is just like Bill so stubborn. Everything is black or white and they are so alike. That is probably why they fight all the time. It was Steffy who kept working trying to get the two back together. Steffy has such a long relationship with both of them but especially Bill……then it is OMG, Bill is the other man. Liam will not let Bill say Steffy’s name so Bill says only two things have changed. The betrayal by Bill and a child on the way. So for the sake of that kid he has to forgive Steffy. He is pleading with him not to walk out on Steffy. Liam argues again that do not say her name again. Liam gets up and starts knocking over pictures on the desk breaking glass. Bill tells him that’s good; just take it out on anything he wants. Just take that anger out and even hit him as many times as he wants to. Steffy tells Katie that is only happened once. Katie wants to know if Bill was drinking or gave her something. Steffy admits no, they both gave in as they thought her marriage was over. She does not know why she let herself do this all over a kiss by Sally and at least Liam told her about it. And the next thing she knew she was waking up next to Bill. She makes Katie promise not to tell anyone. Katie gives her another hug.

Liam spouts that he cannot forgive either of them as Bill took the most precious thing from him and corrupted it. Bill reminds him that he did not know Liam or Wyatt until they were grown and he was counting on Liam to turn that Spencer curse around. He must think about the marriage vows. Liam says yeah, the ones Steffy just retook after she climbed out of Bill’s bed where he took her. Maybe Steffy cannot run away fast enough from Bill; well neither can he now. Bill says he does not blame him but do not make Steffy suffer any more than she has. There is no one who can give forgiveness more than Liam. Steffy was very upset when she thought of the possibility that the baby could be Bill’s. But when she found out it was Liam’s, she was more than overjoyed. So the baby is meant to be. He can make the Spencers function for once. His old man had no desire to do that and even Bill could not manage it. So it is up to Liam. Liam scoffs. That’s rich; Bill wants to talk to him about the obligations to family! Liam roars that he will share custody of this child and make sure that he is as far away from Bill as possible but do not talk to him about obligations or responsibility and especially how to be a parent. He will never be able to see Steffy in the same way again; never look her in the eye, never wake up next to her. That is all gone now thanks to Bill. Bill took that..... the most beautiful part of his life. So yes Bill is right; he is passing the Spencer legacy on down to Liam. Congratulations on how not to raise your own children. But Bill’s legacy is never enough. He has to control things. Nothing is ever big enough or shiny enough. He has to leave his mark on everything; even him and Wyatt. He laughs at the ridiculous swords as he rips his off his neck. He squeezes it tightly and says he never had a chance. Bill grimaces when Liam opens his palm and there is blood dripping everywhere. Bill says there is no excuse. He did not want to be like his own father and now he is worse. He could never forgive his own father but he cannot go on without Liam’s forgiveness. He pleads with Liam one more time – he has more goodness in him that anyone he knows. He needs his forgiveness. He mentions again that the Spencers have had this curse on them for generations and Liam could lift that and bring light to it by staying with his wife and family. He walks toward Liam but he moves backward. Bill falls to his knees and tells Liam to hate him if necessary but he is pleading with him to love his wife and baby. Bill cries that it was all his fault, just his. Liam does not say a word. With contempt he walks over and slaps his hand against Bill’s cheek leaving a huge bloody handprint. Liam walks out the door with Bill hollering for him to come back. Still on the floor he rocks back and forth wondering just what he has done.
