The TV MegaSite's Friday 1/26/18 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy opens the door one more time and there is Bill. He wants to be sure she is alone and then comes on in. She says he should not be here. He sees the annulment papers. He says he has expressed his regrets many times over but he is not going to spend the rest of his life doing so. Liam replays conversations with Steffy over and over, especially the one where she tells him she was with his father. Ridge shows up. He brings in a six pack of beer. He tells Liam that he doesn’t hold him responsible for any of this. Liam says that he doesn’t hold it against Ridge for the feuds he has with his father who is wrong in this case. Hope discusses Steffy with Brooke by telling her she is pregnant but then she guesses she already knew. That is what happens when you are away for so long, you lose touch. She was happy for them and now a child is on the way but there are so many secrets and things that are unclear. Brooke says everyone thought Taylor was so pure but when she fell she fell hard; like mother like daughter. Hope is hopeful that eventually they will get back together but Brooke says this time she doubts that will ever happen. Hope keeps repeating that there is a family at stake and Brooke replies more than she will ever know. Hope asks if the other man was Wyatt and when Brooke says no, then Hope guesses it was Bill.

As they discuss it, Steffy tells Bill that it is over although she is not giving up but Liam says he will never take her back. Ridge tells Liam that Steffy went to the guest house to be alone so Liam should not forget that. It was Bill that had revenge on his mind and he found her and took advantage. Liam says no, he knows what others have said that he should just suck it up and take it like a man but he cannot do that. Bill tells Steffy that she can keep beating up on herself and putting the baby’s needs in turmoil or she can do herself a favor and sign the papers and get on with her own life too if that is what Liam insists on doing. She can wait for his rose colored glasses to appear but that is probably not going to happen. Ridge tells Liam that he is going to the police. Liam says no, Steffy will not let him do that. It was consensual. Ridge does not see why Liam can’t comprehend that Bill pursued Steffy. That man is despicable and he as the husband and the father needs to be there for her. He wants to make Liam aware just how much Steffy loves him. And he wants Liam to see how much Bill hurt them, so just go to her. He knows deep down that is what he wants. Liam cries that Ridge cannot bully him too. Bill holds the papers and asks Steffy how long she wants to hold out on this. Bill confides that he is good at putting his feelings away and compartmentalize them. All of this was before he ever knew Liam existed. So while he would like them to get back together if she says it is not going to happen then she needs to move on. He will be there for her and be the best grandfather he can be. He knows she cannot tell that child she is carrying that his dad is not coming home. He strokes her hair and touches her face lovingly and says she is not alone. He is here.
