B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge stands and tells Bill that he is a predator and he violated his daughter and he cannot just take who he wants when he wants it. Brooke stops by to see Steffy after Ridge told her to. She asks if something else happened and is it about Liam. She thinks it is wonderful when Steffy says she is pregnant. Liam was happy until he discovered she took a paternity test. Brooke knows that means there was another man and asks who it was. Her jaw falls open when Steffy says it was Bill. Brooke refuses to believe that. Bill would not do that to her. Steffy explains how it happened when she would not forgive Liam about Sally and she went to the guest house. Bill dropped by and comforted her. She was in tears and devastated. But he did not take advantage of her; they just became close. It only happened that one time but that is why she took the paternity test. She wanted to tell Liam the truth but she couldn’t. Brooke wonders if Ridge knows. Bill tells Ridge he does not have to say another thing. It did not go down like Ridge is saying. Ridge rolls up his sleeves to get ready and tells Bill to do the same.

He always sees red when it comes to Bill.

Steffy confides in Brooke that Ridge does not believe her about Bill not taking advantage of her and wants to call the police. Ridge says he does not believe Bill. Bill wants to explain. Bill says he did want revenge when Liam took his company away from him, but Steffy kept him from doing that. He cares about her and her happiness means everything to him. Ridge squares off and says let himself be perfectly clear Bill will NEVER be with Steffy again. Bill says he wants that marriage to continue and he will do everything in his power to see that happens but he needs Ridge’s help. Neither of them came from a stable home and he knows Ridge does not want that to happen to their first grandchild. The baby needs to be loved, cherished and nurtured by two parents in the same house.
