Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of December 6, 2010
Bill issued a stern warning to Oliver, who apologized for pulling the limo stunt on Liam. Bill told puzzled Oliver he was about to win the contest for Hope's affection. When Oliver wondered why Bill would go behind his son's back, Bill explained that his son had a lot of living to do; he should be bedding a different woman every night. "This is your lucky day," Bill smirked. A rattled Oliver said thanks, but he didn't need Bill's help.
Hope wondered why Liam brought her there to an empty apartment. Taking Hope into his arms, Liam told her that he lived in the apartment now. "It's my new favorite hangout," Hope said with a smile. Liam said Hope could keep a toothbrush there. "In case I spend the night," she said coyly. Hope was very happy for Liam, but said she didn't want him to that he was still Liam Cooper. He might change his name to Spencer, mused Liam.
Brooke took away Ridge's laptop and lured him back to bed, right before Taylor called Ridge t report they had received an email from Steffy, who was in Europe. Ridge assured Taylor that everything would be alright, but Brooke noted that Ridge seemed awfully chummy with his ex. Ridge explained that he and Taylor needed to discuss things as parents. Brooke said she understood, and also hoped that Taylor understands that she's with Whip now. Ridge admitted to Brooke that he'd told Taylor that that his marriage would be over if something happened between Brooke and Thomas. "It's never going to happen," he said quickly, but added that Taylor was "the other great love of my life." Brooke was flabbergasted, and worried that Ridge's comments would only get Taylor's hopes up. "Taylor is going to be waiting for me to mess up," Brooke fretted.
Taylor looked at a photo from her wedding with Whip, but it caused her to recall better times with Ridge. She took out a garter belt and when Whip entered their bedroom, they started to kiss. As they made love, Taylor kept recalling sex with Ridge. Whip pulled away when Taylor called him Ridge!
A shaken Whip climbed out of bed after Taylor called him Ridge. "Were you hoping that it was him touching you and not me?" he demanded. Taylor tried to explain herself, telling Whip that he'd helped her get past a lot of her Ridge issues and reminded her of how good it felt to be in love again. Whip wanted to believe her but still looked unsettled. When he asked Taylor where she would live if she could live anywhere, she cited "this house," where'd she'd raised her kids and made memories. It seemed to confirm his suspicions. He noted memories were "portable" and she could take them somewhere she hadn't lived with Ridge. An apologetic Taylor assured him she loves and adores him. "But I can never really come first with you, can I?" he wondered, noting she can't lie and say she loves him more than she loves Ridge. Taylor insisted loving them wasn't "the same," and said she was sorry for hurting him. Whip said he wasn't jealous of her first love as long as he's number one in her life right now. They ended up hugging and kissing.
Bill made himself at home on Oliver's couch. "If you want something, you
fight for it," he advised the boy, who wasn't all that hot to break up Liam
and Hope on his suggestion. Oliver, in fact, threatened to tell Liam and
Hope about Bill's idea! Bill said he was shooting himself in the foot. If
Oliver cooperated, they could clear a path to Hope. "What the Hell were you smoking for breakfast that makes you think you can threaten me?" Bill wondered. Bill then proceeded to make a very compelling argument for Oliver to do his bidding...as Amber lurked outside the door behind him. Amber listened as closely as she could as Bill kept making his pitch to Oliver. Bill even called Liam so he could lord it over Ollie that Hope was with his son. Alone, Amber and Oliver discussed Bill's offer. "What's the big deal?" Amber wondered, suggesting he go for it. Oliver didn't want to turn Hope's world upside down but Amber's encouragement on top of Bill's was pretty convincing...
Liam and Hope enjoyed their candlelight and Chinese food...until Hope called Liam out for making veiled sexual references. Liam apologized for making her uncomfortable and she wondered what it had been like for him and other girls. That subject got tabled for a minute when Bill called and told Liam to go home because he had a day starting at 7 tomorrow. As Liam vented, Hope urged him to just take the fledgling relationship with his father as it comes. Then, she explained how she doesn't want sleeping with him to just be some spur of the moment thing. "Is now a weird time for me to tell you how much I love you?" Liam asked. "Not necessarily, no," she smiled, before they kissed and cuddled.
Jarrett and Brio did an Eye on Fashion cover shoot with Ridge, Thomas and Taylor for the Taboo line. "Even the Europeans are impressed," Jarrett noted
of Thomas' line. Thomas gave him a few quotes and then ushered him out so a
TV reporter could come in...except there was no TV reporter. He was just
trying to sound like a hotshot! Taylor admitted she's not comfortable with
how Thomas has chosen to promote his line and then beamed that Ridge and
Thomas were the most important part of her life. (Poor Whip!) Ridge chimed
in that he loved the woman who gave him his son and his daughters and, after
Thomas left, they shared a chummy hug. At Il Giardino, Whip walked up on
Brooke finishing up an interview. He praised how great Brooke looks and
chalked Taboo's success all up to her. She thanked him for all the
compliments and asked how he's doing. She sensed something was up with him
and Taylor. Whip mentioned they were thinking of moving and gingerly
admitted to having experienced a personal blow relating to Ridge. "Old
memories can sometimes be oppressive if you're the outsider," he sighed.
Brooke sympathetically squeezed his hand as he opened up about Taylor. Back
at Forrester, Taylor and Ridge began discussing Whip. "It's so weird,"
Taylor sighed, before telling him about calling out Ridge's name. Ridge
cracked up...just as Whip walked in the door.
Bill called Oliver to remind him of what he needed to accomplish with Hope.
Just as Bill hung up, Liam walked into his office. Bill told his son to
"relax" and have a seat. He talked to Liam about how Spencer Publications
needed to be his focus. "You're seeing too much of Hope Logan," he declared.
When Liam said he was in love, Bill dismissed it as him being too young and
said he should play the field. "You will have endless opportunities to meet
women," he said. "Women are like food...they come in different flavors."
Bill just wanted Liam to experience everything the world has to offer. To do
that, he had to be "free." At the beach house, Hope came over for a photo
shoot on the beach. Oliver took a bunch of shots outdoors and indoors and then waxed poetic about
everything that makes Hope special. He told her he hadn't stopped loving
Whip was infuriated at Taylor discussing their sex life with her ex. Taylor
asked to borrow Ridge's office so she could talk to Whip alone. "I'm sorry,
I made a mistake," she sighed. Taylor said she and Ridge had
always been very open with each other. Whip couldn't fathom why she'd tell
him something so private. "We just share things," she sputtered. Whip
wondered if Ridge, not Thomas' Taboo line, was her big preoccupation. Taylor
kept trying to defend herself. "He laughed!" Whip raged of Ridge. He
went off on Taylor and ended up storming out...past Ridge, who'd
returned. "Whip walked out on me!" vented Taylor, freaking out. Oliver
interrupted their chat just long enough to say he'd deleted the Taboo test
shots. He gave Ridge the only hard copies...and, of course, Ridge showed
Taylor. Taylor went ballistic. Ridge assured Taylor that Brooke wouldn't
hurt Thomas. "Our son isn't a boy anymore, he's a grown man," Ridge
reminded, saying the campaign was under control. He swore to Taylor that he
wouldn't let anything happen and hugged her. Naturally, that was the moment
Oliver took some racy Taboo promo shots of Brooke and Oliver that Thorne was
definitely uncomfortable with. When Ridge walked up on it, he wasn't all
that thrilled either. "It's too blatant!" he said of the naughty set-ups.
"We can't go too far." He tossed Thomas his shirt and they all realized they
needed to set some guidelines. Ridge warned Brooke that they could end up in
"very dicey territory." Brooke stressed that she loves Ridge and nothing is
going on and said she'd do whatever Ridge wants.
Oliver called Bill to tell him that he'd seen Hope but she is firmly
committed to Liam. "Hang in there, Romeo," cracked Bill before Liam walked
in to his office for another lecture. Katie arrived just as Bill said he had
plans for Liam's future. He wanted to "introduce our new generation reader
to our new generation leader." He wanted to have a "coronation" and he was
entrusting Liam with the company's image. "Starting today, son, you are the
second most exciting badass dude on the planet!" he intoned. Liam noted he
just couldn't be a badass. Katie said he could still be himself...in
private! Katie gently echoed Bill's advice, but affectionately noted that
nothing was sexier than a man committed to the woman he loves and kissed her
hubby. Sans Katie, Bill told Liam that he could be anything he wanted to be,
and Bill would help. "I'm not a playboy," Liam reminded. Bill said it was
about image and told him to just avoid talking about his girlfriend. "I know
you have it in you...because you're part of me," he said. They had a
touching little heart to heart about their connection and clasped hands.
Ridge and Taylor broke from their hug as Whip looked on. Taylor hoped Ridge wouldn't live to regret supporting Taboo. "Try not to worry!" he said,
before he went downstairs. There, Thomas was preparing for the Taboo fashion
show and Summer kissed him for luck. Thomas reminded her that his "one
priority" is Taboo. Ridge reminded Thomas not to push the boundaries of good
taste. "Relax!" Thomas shrugged off. Ridge warned him not to cross the line.
Back in Ridge's office, Whip observed to Taylor that she's still in love
with her ex. "I don't want Ridge, I want you!" Taylor swore. Whip wasn't
sure it was enough. Taylor apologized yet again for calling out Ridge's name
in bed, but Whip was still unconvinced. He felt like he was losing her.
Taylor promised he wasn't, saying over and over that she was sorry and she
loves him. She begged him to forgive her and put this behind them. He
accepted her apology and promised to "protect you, always," warning her,
"but you gotta protect us!" Later, Whip went off on Ridge, telling him he
wouldn't put up with Ridge invading his family. "What is it with you? You
want the blonde and the brunette?" he accused, wondering why Ridge kept
feeding Taylor's vulnerability. Ridge said he wouldn't cut himself off from
the mother of his kids. "That's the way it is, it's not gonna change," he
said of their co-parenting. Ridge dismissed Whip with a smug, "Stay out of
my life, because there really isn't anything you can do to me." When Whip
went down to the Taboo show, he plotted to prove otherwise!
At Nick's, Aggie set up dinner for her, Nick, Jackie and Owen. She'd made
Jackie's favorites -- filet mignon, chocolate souffle and other goodies --
in the hopes that everything would go perfectly. Jackie reminded Nick that
their "friends across town" were having another fashion show. Nick dubbed
the Taboo line and the Forresters "more twisted" than they were! He then
toasted to the Jackie M family sticking together and persevering.
