B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy tells Liam that she gets it; he needed some time. He says it is not just the two of them any more with the baby on the way. They have to find out how moving forward with a family will work. In bed, Katie asks Wyatt if perhaps they should invite Liam and Steffy over and discuss the matter. He nixes that as they are not an official couple yet and they would know when they saw him undressing Katie with his eyes across the table. And as much as he would like to help he does not think they can solve their problems over a plate of pasta. Sally drops in to see Steffy at work but Pam says she is not in today. Turning around she runs into Hope. She gushes she was such a huge fan and star struck over her Hope for the Future. She would like to talk to her. She goes on and on about Liam. Hope says she is practically gushing. Sally says she appreciates him and his goodness, that is it. She got caught with Liam and lived to tell about it. And he even confessed to Steffy and she forgave him. But Liam has moved out and something is very wrong so perhaps she did not forgive him after all. Liam tells Steffy that he wanted a baby so badly and he wanted it with her. He wanted the whole experience and he could have had that if he had kept his mouth shut but he did not want to pressure her that way. And then there was the paternity test. She says she knows she hurt him and she wishes she could go back and tell him how sorry she is. He says it does not mean he can walk through that door and pretend all is okay even for the baby. She says he is here now so he must want to work it out and tells him to reach down inside himself and think what is right for their baby. He says that is why he is here. Sally says Liam is a mess. He not only is leaving Steffy but Spencer as well but she cannot figure out why. But that is why she is here to talk to Steffy.

Liam says that is all he has thought about since she got pregnant; what kind of father he would be. Certainly not like his own. The world would be better off without him. Sally tells Hope please do not think she is here to gossip. When she saw her she knew here was someone who loved him as much as she does. Hope says this does not make any sense that she would ditch all of this when fighting for Liam so long. Sally says Liam is hurting and she has never seen him like this. She feels like it was her fault but Liam said no, she had nothing to do with it. Steffy tells Liam that if he wants more time, fine but take it here at home, watching their baby grow. Maybe when the baby comes his forgiveness will too. They can have the life they always dreamed of. Liam says they always have a choice. She had a choice to sleep with his father or not. She says she is asking….no she is begging … it for the baby. Maybe she does not deserve his forgiveness but the baby doesn’t deserve this. She begs him to please forgive her.
