Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of January 31, 2011
Hope and Liam promptly cracked up when Amber claimed she is pregnant. Liam offered her sarcastic congratulations and doubts about whether he was the father. He demanded she tell him what had happened the night of his concussion. Amber deflected, stressing that she's pregnant. Back at Tawny's, she checked things like "nap" and "beer run" off her to-do list and reveled in Amber taking caring of her own business. At Spencer Publications, Hope blasted Amber about what she'd done to Rick, refusing to let Amber do the same thing to Liam. Hope asked Amber how many other guys she'd been with and Amber got defensive and huffy. Hope and Liam warned her they'd get a paternity test. A defeatist Amber returned to Tawny's, figuring she should just tell Oliver the truth. Tawny disabused her of that notion, reminding her that they had an ace in the hole: Carl! Tawny manipulated her daughter until Amber was back on the same page.
Brooke asked Stephanie to end the feud between their families once and for all. "Forgiving is living, right?" Stephanie sighed, before agreeing. A jubilant Brooke gave her grouchy pal a hug. Then, Stephanie mended fences with Stephen and Pam, asking where they wanted to have the wedding. Stephanie was still wary, of course, warning Stephen that if he ever hurt Pam, "all bets are off." Stephen accepted the warning in the spirit in which it was intended and they all went back to talking about the wedding. Elsewhere, Donna came to visit Eric and tell him in person that she's marrying Justin tomorrow. Eric was happy for her, and for Marcus and Justin as well. The two shared a sweet moment as Donna lauded Eric for always supporting her. Cue some flashbacks! Before she left, Donna gave Eric a honey bear to remember her by. Later, Donna caught up with Brooke, who told her that Stephanie had agreed to end the Logan/Forrester feud. Meanwhile, Stephanie came home to Eric and told him about Pam and Stephen's engagement. He told her how he felt about Donna's engagement. "I think this old man finally understands...that I'm damn lucky to be with you," he sighed. "Thank you for giving me a second chance." They toasted with martinis and Eric
teased her with the honey bear. In Malibu, Donna waxed poetic about Justin. Brooke loved that, at long last, all three Logan sisters would be married to wonderful men.
Donna's sisters helped her get ready on her wedding day, and Justin called to check on her. When she teased him about not wanting to see her before the wedding, superstitious Justin joked that he didn't want to "tick off the Big Man" at the last moment. They sweetly traded "I love you"s. Donna then told Brooke and Katie she wished Stephen was bringing their mom, not Pam, to the ceremony. Meanwhile, Stephen and Pam traded niceties and engagement news with Ridge. Marcus soon arrived, introducing Dayzee to his grandfather. That left Ridge free to trade jibes with Bill! Back at Bride Central, they did the whole "something old, something new" thing. Moments later, Justin introduced his cousin Olivia from Genoa City to the wedding attendees. Nearby, Pam caught up with Jarrett and Ridge and Brooke canoodled. They joked about family weddings having drama, even referencing Brooke's infamous horse moment! Then, Marcus and Donna shared a sweet moment and Justin welcomed the minister. Stephen, Katie, Brooke and Donna talked about Beth and Storm, and then it was time for Donna to get into her dress and walk down the aisle...er, off the porch and into the house. A radiant Donna joined Justin and their attendants in front of the fireplace. "I am so ready!" gasped a teary Donna, as the ceremony began.
At Spencer Publications, Hope and Liam discussed what they'd learned (or not learned, as the case may be) from Amber. They ran through other
possibilities for Amber's baby daddy and landed on...Oliver! Meanwhile,
Amber showed up at Oliver's and told him she's pregnant. "I'm the father," Oliver assumed. Amber quickly told him he wasn't, explaining she'd shared her news with Liam and Hope already. "They're gonna come looking for answers," she warned. "You better have the right one." Oliver wanted her assurance that there was no possibility of him being the dad. Amber sidestepped, pointing out that the mere implication would blow Ollie's chances of getting Hope back. Oliver went off, refusing to promise Amber anything, but she worked her charm, getting him on her side.
All those gathered for Donna and Justin's wedding settled in for a sweet,
simple ceremony. Brooke spoke, welcoming Justin to the family. Then it was time for the "I do's" and the rings. Donna and Justin exchanged moving vows and Donna planted a kiss on Justin before "you may kiss the bride" was even out of the minister's mouth! Afterwards, Justin and Marcus talked about how Donna had taken his name. Would Marcus consider doing that, too? Marcus said he'd think about it and they hugged tightly. Later, Bill, Justin and Jarrett chatted with Olivia. Bill wondered if he'd met Olivia before, since she looked familiar. Nearby, Ridge and Brooke cuddled and danced, and Marcus told Dayzee he was leaving to work at Forrester International for a bit. Pam offered Donna lemon bars and a truce, seeing as how she was to be her stepmother. Then, Bill offered up a toast to the happy couple. Olivia made her own toast, thanking everyone for making her feel welcome. Donna then thanked everyone (and God, too).
At Oliver's, Amber again stressed that her baby is Liam's. Oliver was
uncomfortable with lying to Hope about their involvement. He and Amber went a few rounds. Later, Liam and Hope showed up to question Oliver, who stuck to Amber's story and told Liam to man up and "do the right thing" by Amber. He left them alone to talk. Liam was still convinced they were being scammed, but Hope was shaken. Liam held her and begged her not to lose faith in him.
At the Spencer beach house after the wedding, Katie and Brooke were alone talking. Brooke confided in her baby sis about her trip to Paris with
Thomas. Meanwhile, Ridge and Thomas were doing the late shift at Forrester, talking about the wedding and the rivalry with Bill. Ridge then lauded his son's work ethic and "chutzpah." Thomas shrugged off all the praise...and then had to face Ridge's questions about his personal life. A clueless Ridge raved about how he hoped Thomas would find someone as phenomenal as Brooke. Back at the house, Brooke told Katie Thomas had kissed her, admitting she didn't know what to think. "You better cut this off!" warned Katie. Brooke swore she hadn't sent Thomas any mixed signals and swore her sister to secrecy. Brooke and Katie kept going back and forth, and Katie encouraged Brooke to get to the bottom of this thing with Thomas. Brooke called her stepson. When Thomas picked up, he tried to tell Brooke it wasn't a good time (since Ridge was there!) but Brooke hung up and headed over! Thomas tried to rush Ridge out of his office. When Brooke showed up, she found a note from Thomas asking her to meet him in the steam room. When Brooke marched down there...it was to find Thomas in there with Summer. That was who the note was for. Brooke was very relieved.
At Jackie M, Owen comforted Jackie, who was worried about Nick's health. When Nick arrived, he was in no mood to be lectured about his smoking. A cranky Nick was trying to fight off his oral fixation with munchies. Owen left his wife and stepson alone to talk. Across town at the Forrester manse, Stephanie stifled coughs and she and Eric talked about Donna's wedding. Eric was happy for Marcus, who finally had his parents back together. Eric then gave Stephanie her chemo pill, and that spurred her to talk about Nick. At Jackie M, Jackie and Nick talked about his withdrawal symptoms. Nick wasn't sure he could make it just a few weeks. Jackie was sure he's strong enough to overcome the addiction. She even showed Nick an anti-smoking PSA featuring the late Yul Brynner! Nick admitted the PSA was powerful and that he'd admired Brynner immensely. "Then listen to him," urged Jackie. Nick was still resistant to calling himself an addict.
Bright and early at Forrester, Katie pumped Brooke about Thomas. Brooke
explained the whole embarrassing steam room debacle. Brooke was relieved
that she'd misconstrued the situation. Ridge walked up on the chat and the
sisters pretended they were discussing Donna's wedding. Alone, Brooke and
Ridge bantered about the wedding and talked about Bill. Then, Summer popped
in looking for Thomas and apologized about the steam room moment. Ridge's
curiosity was piqued and Brooke told mostly the truth about catching
Summer and Thomas in the steam room. Ridge was happy to hear that Thomas was
playing the field. Ridge hoped that once Thomas did settle down, it would be
with someone like Brooke. Brooke told Ridge how much she loves him and they
At the hospital, Nick was antsy, and kind of dismissive about Dr. Lewis'
concerns that the spot on his lung could get worse. He said he was on the
patch and chewing the gum and "giving quitting a shot" but he didn't really
believe an occasional cigar would kill him. At Jackie M, Stephanie caught up
with a frantic Jackie, who was worried about Nick's smoking. Jackie asked
Stephanie to try and get through to Nick again. Stephanie admitted that
she'd been mulling over the idea of starting a support group for lung cancer
survivors...and perhaps Nick could sit in. Jackie assured Stephanie that
Nick would show up to such a thing. Nick blew Dr. Lewis off and was about to
leave...when Stephanie arrived! She outlined her support group plan and
persuaded Nick to be a part of it. Nick came over to the Forrester mansion
with Stephanie, all uncomfortable. Stephanie welcomed the first survivor and
explained why Nick was sitting in. The woman talked about her experience and
how she'd quit smoking 29 years before and been diagnosed and told she had
six months to live. "I admire your strength and perseverance," Stephanie
