The TV MegaSite's Wednesday 1/17/18 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge tells Brooke the ring looks better on her finger than in the box. He proposes they can run off to Vegas for the wedding. He was hoping Steffy would show up today but she is still not in. Bill walks in on Steffy all bundled up on the couch. He says he thought Liam might have come home. She lifts her head long enough to say he did just to say goodbye. Hope with Ivy, sporting short blonde hair, hug and she wants to know if blondes do have more fun. Rick is not happy to hear the news when Brooke is flashing her ring around for the office to see. Rick says he wants her to be happy but he wants her to be sure this is what she wants. She says she is absolutely happy. Ridge tells the group that Thorne has not been supportive and was not invited but it is up to him. Brooke surprises Hope by saying in the spirit of things she thought she would ask Steffy to be her matron of honor. Hope is okay with that and just wants her mom to be happy. Steffy tells Bill that Liam cannot even look at her now so he definitely is not going to share the house with her. Bill says all of that could change when he actually sees the baby in her arms. He rants there are scorecards and other ways to honor the integrity of a marriage. Bill says they are trying to put this marriage back together and Liam is talking to lawyers. Then he drops the bomb that he has his own annulment papers from Brooke. It is over. He tells Steffy that she does not have to be alone; he is only a phone call away.

Ridge tells the group that he has learned his lesson and he is not going to let Brooke down again. She hugs each one and says it will be such a joy to have them at her wedding. The next knock at Steffy’s door is Brooke and Steffy springs fast enough hoping it is Liam, but it is Brooke who is stunned at what she sees. Steffy pretends all is all right but she got busy and forgot to respond to Brooke’s e-mail. Brooke shows her the ring and says Bill got his annulment papers so Ridge and her wedding is on. And as a matter of fact she would like her to stand up for her as her matron of honor. Steffy fusses around and acts busy so she does not have to look Brooke in the eye and says she is happy for them but she can’t do that. Brooke thinks it might be because of Taylor and her history with Ridge as well. Steffy says no that has nothing to do with it. She knows she and Ridge love each other and they will have a beautiful marriage but she cannot be part of it. Brooke says she is not acting like herself. Why doesn’t she think it over as she wants both her and Liam there. Steffy says he won’t be; he has walked out on her. Brooke says obviously she does not know what happened but perhaps she could talk to her and she could help. She asks pointblank what happened.
