Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of November 29, 2010
Brooke and Taylor explained both their viewpoints in regards to Thomas's men's line. Taylor didn't want Brooke spending time with her son; Brooke argued that Ridge was the one who came up with the idea for the Taboo line. Stephanie didn't think that it was realistic to tell Thomas that he couldn't have any contact with his stepmother and didn't think Ridge's decision was "catastrophic," either. Taylor warned that Stephanie would be sorry for supporting Ridge and went on a rant about Brooke and Thomas. Steph noted that Brooke has proven that she can be loyal and loving. Brooke thanked her and left Stephanie's room. Taylor felt betrayed by her friend and cried that she was losing Steph. Stephanie gave her a hug and assured Taylor that their friendship was still strong. Taylor begged her to protect her son, but Stephanie didn't think that she could do anything.
Oliver returned home and found Amber parading around in a bikini. He told her that his shoot with Hope was over. Meanwhile, Hope assured Liam that Ollie hadn't been doing anything wrong and was just doing a photo shoot with her.... Oliver joined Amber for a swim and lamented that Hope feels safe with Liam, and not with him. Amber suggested that he write her a poem, but Oliver didn't think he could.... Hope and Liam enjoyed an impromptu picnic on the beach. He asked her to let him know if he got too needy and shared that he'd always been good at being alone until he'd met her. The talk turned back to Oliver and Liam said that if he lost Hope, he'd feel exactly as Ollie does. Hope urged him not to put her on a pedestal. "I'm an expert on ordinary," Liam assured her. "You're different from anyone I've ever known." They shared a steamy kiss, then snuggled.... After their swim, Oliver gave Amber a beer and asked her to stop scheming to get him and Hope together. Instead, he wanted Hope to decide for herself that she loves him.
Thomas had Summer come to his office to try on a bikini. Madison then stopped by and said that she'd had a great time at the party with him and hoped that they could go out again. Later, Brooke met up with Thomas at the office so they could work on his line. She filled him in on her talk with Stephanie and he was pleased. After, Thomas tried on one of his shirts as a blonde fondled him from behind. Taylor entered his office and screamed.
Taylor went to Thomas's office and screamed when she saw him kissing a blonde whom she assumed was Brooke. However, the blonde was Summer. Taylor apologized for interrupting and Summer left. Taylor hugged her son in relief and explained that she'd actually seen Brooke's face just then. Thomas jokingly asked if he was not allowed to date blondes. Madison then stopped by and made plans with Thomas for their date. Taylor was glad to see her son going out with different girls and having fun. He assured her that she doesn't have to worry about him hooking up with his stepmother and explained that he just wants to work his way up the ladder at Forrester Creations. Taylor promised to stop fighting with him over Taboo.
A half-naked Oliver and Amber hung out and drank beer at his place. He feared what would happen if his sister walked in and saw them together. Amber promised not to tell anyone that she's staying there and was certain that he and Hope would reunite. Just then, Aggie knocked on the door and entered, while Amber hid outside. Aggie asked why her brother was drinking two beers. He lied that he was working his way up to the second. She asked how his photo shoot with Hope went and he complained how Liam had interrupted it. Aggie encouraged him not to give up on Hope. She then went off on Amber, calling her rival a skank, as Amber listened from the patio. Aggie went to close the patio door and found Amber standing there, wearing nothing but Ollie's shirt. Oliver pretended that she'd just arrived, but Aggie realized that they were sleeping together. "Eww!" Aggie exclaimed and couldn't believe that he'd let Amber crash at his house. Oliver defended Amber and said that she's been helping him. Aggie didn't buy it and reminded him how Amber had stolen Hope's designs. "You need to wake up ... She's just using you," Aggie warned and implored him to kick his houseguest to the curb.
The Logan sisters met for lunch with Stephen. He thanked Donna for helping him go through Beth's things in Paris. Donna lamented that she misses Eric, but Stephen replied that Eric doesn't deserve her. Stephen then brought up his romance with Pam and said that Beth would want him to have some fun and happiness. His daughters agreed that it was time to move forward. Katie asked how Stephanie was doing. Brooke shared how her relationship with Steph has changed for the better and added that Stephanie even sided with her over Taylor. Brooke felt badly for Taylor being so concerned about Thomas, but stated that she'd never do anything inappropriate with her stepson. Katie agreed that the Taboo campaign was great PR. Brooke then showed them her shots from the campaign and went on about how Thomas is just like a young Ridge. Katie and Donna wondered if Thomas could really handle everything.
Aggie implored Oliver to kick Amber out of his home. Ollie defended his pal, but Aggie wanted Amber gone. "You're a liar and a thief," Aggie growled, but Amber wasn't fazed. Aggie asked Oliver how Hope would feel if she knew that he was shacking up with Amber. An impatient Oliver thanked his sister for caring, but asked her to butt out. Aggie reluctantly left. After, Oliver assured Amber that he forgives her for stealing Hope's designs — but indeed thought that she should go so that he could have a future with Hope. Amber argued that Hope could still find out that she'd been there and said that Hope doesn't appreciate him. "I need you, Oliver," Amber told him and pleaded with him to let her stay.
At Forrester Creations, Hope asked Marcus to give her pointers on a speech she was writing about making a difference in other people's lives. Marcus thought it was a good speech. Aggie went to FC and listened to Hope read it aloud for a moment. She then made her presence known and Hope welcomed her. Aggie begged Hope to reunite with Oliver.
Ridge met up with Taylor at her home. She admitted that she thought she'd seen Thomas kissing Brooke when it had really been a model, Summer. Ridge was concerned about her being so stressed out over the Thomas/Brooke scandal. She agreed that she's been overreacting. "You know me better than anybody," she told him, reaching over to grab Ridge's hand. "You know my heart." Ridge assured her that there was nothing for her to worry about. Taylor felt badly that she and Thomas have been growing apart. Ridge was sure that she wouldn't lose her son and noted that all Thomas is interested in is his work. She realized that she could no longer treat Thomas like a child. Ridge was relieved that she no longer felt like she had to protect their son from Brooke, and was ready for all of them to move forward. Taylor promised to try. Ridge affectionately kissed his ex on her forehead. Later, Ridge stated that if Thomas and Brooke had indeed done something inappropriate, his marriage to Brooke would've been over. Ridge and Taylor agreed that it was nice having this talk; Ridge reminded Taylor that she'd always be important to him. Whip soon came home and overheard Taylor and Ridge having their intimate conversation.
As a fire roared in the fireplace, Ridge and Brooke kissed and snuggled in bed. She was grateful to him for trusting her with Thomas and relieved that Taylor was going to stop fighting them on the Taboo line. Later, they looked at a photo of Thomas and Brooke noted that Ridge's son is just like him. She and Ridge looked forward to growing old together.
Meanwhile, Taylor kept thinking about how Ridge had told her he'd leave Brooke if anything happened between her and Thomas. Stephanie arrived at Taylor's and Taylor told her about her conversation with Ridge. "Something is coming, Stephanie," she gushed. "I can feel it." Stephanie didn't think that Ridge meant to give her false hope about their future. Still, Taylor thought it was nice that Ridge loves her and confided in her. Stephanie reminded that Taylor is married. "[Ridge] needs me when this whole thing falls apart," Taylor declared. She was certain that Brooke was going to lose him. Steph asked if Taylor is still in love with Ridge. Taylor evaded the question and went on about what a terrible person Brooke is. Stephanie wanted to give Brooke the benefit of the doubt but Taylor thought that her friend was being nave. Stephanie looked concerned about Taylor's ranting. Later, Ridge's words continued to echo in Taylor's head. Taylor again stated that Brooke was eventually going to let Ridge down.
Amber begged Oliver to let her stay at his place, but he didn't think that Hope would understand if he and Amber lived in the same house. He told Amber that he wants to get Hope back without any scheming. Amber stated that Ollie makes her want to be a better person and began to cry. Oliver changed his mind and agreed to let her stay in the apartment above the garage. Just like Fonzie! Amber was thrilled.... Aggie complained about Amber to Hope and noted that Oliver had been at Hope's party when Liam wasn't. "Please don't give up on him," Aggie pleaded. Later, Aggie returned to Oliver's and continued to bash Amber. She then revealed that she went to see Hope. He was annoyed until Aggie said that he still has a shot with Hope.... Amber went to Forrester Creations looking for a job from Rick and ran into Hope. Hope told her to get lost. Amber surprised her by replying that Hope should give Ollie another chance. Hope couldn't believe that Amber would try to tell her how to live her life. Amber went on about how lucky Hope is to have someone like Oliver in love with her and warned that Liam could turn out to be just like his father.
At Forrester Creations, Amber continued to encourage Hope to reunite with Oliver, noting that you never forget your first love.... At the beach house, Oliver and Liam argued over Hope. Liam told Ollie to stay away from his girlfriend, but Oliver planned to remind her of how much they love each other. Amber soon came home and Oliver motioned for her to hide so Liam wouldn't see her. Meanwhile, Liam implored Ollie to let Hope go.
Brooke and Ridge discussed how the guys keep fighting over Hope. Hope soon returned from work and made dinner plans with her parents. They asked how her photo shoot went and Hope replied that it was interrupted when Liam came by. Hope lamented that her love life is getting complicated. She explained that she cares for both guys and doesn't want either to get hurt. Hope then thanked her parents for giving her such a great life and also looked to Stephanie as a role model. Brooke acknowledged that she and Steph have a new level of respect for one another and Hope was pleased. Still, Hope wondered if she was being fair to Liam and Oliver and admitted that Liam's been very busy at work. Brooke thought that Liam should put her first and also reminded her that Hope can't control how Oliver reacts to her telling him that they can just be friends. Ridge agreed that all she could do was be honest with Oliver. Soon, Liam called and asked to see her right away. She agreed to meet him that evening.
After Liam left Oliver's place, Amber told Oliver how she'd had a talk with Hope. Ollie wasn't pleased, but Amber shared that she'd let Hope know what an amazing guy Oliver is. He still thought that she should stay away from Hope and stop scheming. Amber assured him that Hope would never find out that she's living with him. Later, Oliver sadly looked at photos of Hope and thought about their relationship.
Bill and Justin planned to find out who Liam's mystery limo driver was. Justin did some research and learned that Oliver was behind it (not realizing that Amber was the driver). Later, Bill paid Oliver a visit. "You messed with my son and his girlfriend and now you're going to answer to me," Bill stated.
