Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of September 20, 2010
At home, Brooke and Ridge noted how happy Hope seemed to be. They admitted that they'd seen her with Liam. Hope explained that she likes feeling "normal" and that her feelings toward Oliver have changed. "We've become good friends," she shared of Liam. "And now you're more than friends," Brooke concluded. Hope confirmed it and added that there's one problem: Steffy. She lamented that Steffy intruded in Bill and Liam's reunion and that she didn't trust her. Brooke vowed to prevent Steffy from ruining things between her daughter and Liam.... Oliver looked at pictures of Hope and thought about her telling him what a great guy Liam is. Liam stopped by Ollie's office at Forrester Creations and asked if they could talk. Oliver wasn't interested: "You stole my girl!" he seethed. Ridge interrupted and asked if he could speak with Liam alone. Liam insisted that he'd never hurt Hope, but Ridge wasn't sure that he could trust him. Ridge warned that he'd better not disappoint her. "Hope is a generous and compassionate person, which makes her special, but also makes her a target," Ridge noted. Liam argued that Hope can be fierce and even stood up to Bill. Ridge's interest was piqued when Liam shared that Steffy was there when he and Bill had made amends.
At Forrester Creations, Steffy confided in Taylor that she's interested in Liam. "He is hot," she enthused, then added that Hope also thought so. Taylor was concerned, but Steffy was ready to compete for him and compared Liam to a "butterfly coming out of its cocoon" She was also turned on by the fact that Liam is Bill's son. Later, Brooke arrived at FC and implored Taylor to get Steffy to stop playing "childish games." Brooke pointed out that Steffy seems to always like Hope's boyfriends, but Steffy retorted that Hope doesn't own Liam. Taylor chose to stay out of it. Brooke explained how happy Hope was now that she'd found someone new and pleaded with Steffy to allow Hope and Liam to explore their feelings for each other.... Hope and Liam went out for coffee and he shared that he and Bill were finally getting along. She was thrilled. They then admitted their feelings for each other and kissed.... Steffy was prepared to go after Liam.
The Jackie M crew set up for their fashion show. Whip reminded Jackie and Owen that the show is supposed to be about their love for each other and advised them to keep quiet about the baby. Meanwhile, Brooke sent Katie a text about Owen and Bridget's baby, which Bill intercepted.... At the show, Bridget was surprised to see Rick there. He insisted that he wasn't there to cause any trouble. After, Rick approached Jackie and asked for a good-luck kiss. Jackie refused. Jackie then called for Whip, Aggie, Owen, Bridget and the rest of the crew and reminded them that the show is "historic."
Katie entered Bill's office, but he didn't mention having seen the text. Bill was anxious for Liam to begin his first day of work at Spencer Publications... Hope helped a nervous Liam dress for work. Soon, Liam arrived and was greeted by his father and Katie. "Play nice," Katie urged before stepping out. Bill had Liam watch a video about Spencer Publications's history. Liam was impressed and was determined to prove himself. Bill's first assignment for him was to have Liam open a gift: it was a sword necklace, just like Bill has. Bill explained that it's a representation of how he lives his life. "You're my son, William Spencer III," Bill reminded. "If you're going to hang that sword around your neck, wear it with pride." Liam put it on and Bill's eyes misted over. Jarrett joined them and said that he's going to the Jackie M show. Bill announced that he and Liam would be going, as well. "My son's going to experience his first breaking story," Bill promised.
Stephanie paid Brooke an unwelcome visit at home and taunted Brooke about no longer working at Forrester Creations. Steph again accused Brooke of having tried to injure her during their previous confrontation. Hope returned home and was happy to see both women there, and urged them to get along. "You're both incredibly strong women," Hope praised. "How can you not see that in each other?" Hope wished that they could work together, noting that they'd be a "powerhouse." "Nooo," Steph mouthed at Brooke. Stephanie made Brooke promise that she'd never hurt Hope again; Brooke made Stephanie vow that she wouldn't try to turn Hope against her. Brooke then demanded that Steph leave.
Bill, Liam and Jarrett arrived at the show, where Jackie took the stage. As the show began and the models walked the runway, Bill looked forward to the "scandal" breaking. Jackie later walked the stage, dressed as Venus. Surrounding her were men decked out to look like statues, including Owen, whom she kissed and led to the front of the stage. She then had designers Bridget and Amber join them. Bridget asked if the press had any questions and Jarrett accused Jackie and Owen's marriage of being a scam. Whip offered a "no comment," but Jarrett persisted. Jackie stated that she and Owen are madly in love. Jarrett announced that Owen fathered Bridget's baby. Bill grinned, satisfied. Bridget, Owen, Jackie and Whip were mortified, and Liam just looked shocked.
At the Jackie M fashion show, chaos broke out when Jarrett revealed that Owen fathered Bridget's baby. Bill jumped in to get the "breaking story," while Whip struggled to do damage control. Bridget just stood on the stage looking like a deer caught in the headlights. Bill questioned Jackie and Owen's marriage, but Jackie insisted that they're truly in love. Bill pressed on and asked if Owen is indeed the father of Bridget's child. Jackie quickly met with Owen, Whip and Bridget; she then confirmed to the press that while Owen did father Bridget's baby, the three of them are raising the child together. Later, Liam told his father that he didn't approve of Bill outing a scandal that involved his wife's niece, Bridget. Bill argued that he uncovered an important story. "Going soft isn't the Spencer way. Get used to it," Bill shrugged, adding that he does what he has to sell magazines. Meanwhile, Jackie and Amber tried to boost everyone's spirits by insisting that the scandal wasn't so bad and would give them publicity. Whip disagreed, though, and feared that the scandal would hurt the company. After the show, Owen — still wearing his statue makeup — apologized to Jackie for cheating on her, while Rick watched their private conversation unseen. Owen pleaded with Jackie to stay with him and she replied by giving him a kiss. Later, one of the other "statues" blinked — it was Rick, waiting to make a move on Jackie!
After Stephanie left Brooke's home, Hope continued to encourage her mom to make amends with Steph. However, Brooke didn't think that they'd ever get along. Brooke changed the conversation to Liam and admitted that she had concerns about her daughter dating Bill Spencer's son. Hope argued that Bill could be influenced in a positive way by Liam.
At Forrester Creations, Stephanie lamented to Ridge, Taylor, Thomas and Steffy how Hope is nave. Ridge agreed with Hope that Brooke and Stephanie have a lot in common; Steph was annoyed and reminded them how Brooke had "accidentally" slept with Oliver. Thomas defended Brooke, stating that al though she's made mistakes, she isn't evil. Steffy and Stephanie were surprised by this, but Thomas declared that he likes Brooke and appreciates what she's done for FC. He wanted Brooke and Hope to be a part of the company. Stephanie reminded him that Brooke and her family have caused problems for the company and refused to back down. Steffy questioned Thomas's family loyalty, but he thought that they were wrong for holding a grudge against Brooke. Brooke joined them and Ridge called Thomas a leader. Stephanie described Thomas as having a "lack of judgment" and accused Brooke of causing all of FC's problems. Ridge urged them to move on like Thomas had, which just made Stephanie and Steffy angrier. Ridge wasn't fazed and said that once the scandal about Brooke and Oliver died down, Brooke was returning.
After the Jackie M fashion show, Owen — still dressed as a statue — complained about Rick putting the moves on Jackie. Jackie assured him that Rick wouldn't get anywhere. Meanwhile, a disguised Rick (also dressed as a statue) smiled. After, Jackie relaxed with a cold compress over her eyes and things began to get intimate between her and Owen. Rick closed his eyes and tried to stay completely still. The pair was interrupted when a messenger asked to see Owen. Rick then stepped in, pretending to be Jackie's husband. Jackie — still with the cloth over her eyes — requested that "Owen" kiss her all over and Rick happily obliged. Jackie groaned with pleasure and asked him to heal her with his "luscious kisses." "Venus likes it very, very slow," she crooned. "I am in heaven." Owen soon returned and Rick jumped back into position. Owen continued to caress Jackie, unaware that Rick had "filled in" for him. When a cell phone rang, Jackie said to leave it. "There are no phones in my kingdom," she commanded. Still, Owen went to get it and Rick returned. Jackie went on about "Owen's" chiseled abs. "Devour me," she moaned, and asked him to kiss her. Owen soon returned; both he and Jackie realized that Rick had been with her. "What the hell are you doing with my wife?" Owen asked angrily. Jackie calmly explained that Rick thinks Owen and Bridget belong together with Logan — and that Jackie shouldn't be alone. Owen was appalled that she was being so cool about the situation, especially when she shared that Rick had been pursuing her for a while. Rick admitted that he has a thing for Jackie. Jackie assured Owen that she let Rick know that she's committed to her husband. Rick demanded that Owen go home to Bridget and their baby; Owen chased after Rick, but Jackie stopped the "statues" from fighting over her.
Stephanie visited Brooke once again and asked to speak with her nemesis. "It's as if you missed me," Brooke joked. Stephanie got right to the point and suggested that Brooke leave Forrester Creations for good. Brooke refused. She asked if she and Stephanie could make amends, but Stephanie didn't think it was possible; instead, she believed that she and Brooke should just avoid contact. Brooke argued that by coming over, Steph was creating conflict. Stephanie insisted that she didn't enjoy fighting and Brooke reminded her of the times they've gotten along. "A momentary lapse on my part," Stephanie shrugged. Steph acknowledged that Brooke has had some good moments professionally, but Brooke always manages to make a "mistake" and ruin things. Brooke thought that it was a waste of time for them to keep squabbling, but Stephanie began to yell about how Brooke has no morals. Brooke demanded that Steph leave, but Stephanie suddenly collapsed and fell to the floor. Brooke accused her of faking, but Stephanie asked for help.
At FC, Thomas continued to defend Brooke. Ridge agreed with his son that Brooke belonged there, and reminded Thomas that she'd soon be returning. Thomas warned that Steffy and Stephanie would fight him. He didn't understand why there was so much bad blood between Brooke and Stephanie and wished that they could resolve their issues. Ridge noted that he's been dealing with the feud for decades.
After Stephanie collapsed at Brooke's place, Brooke accused her of faking. Steph asked for the paramedics, but Brooke didn't buy it. "Nothing can kill you, Stephanie," Brooke said, "except for maybe a stake through your heart." Stephanie became breathless and called for an ambulance herself. The EMTs arrived and Stephanie accused Brooke of pushing her. Brooke still believed that her rival was faking. Steph complained that she was short of breath. Brooke just rolled her eyes, but joined Stephanie at the hospital anyway.
At Jackie M, Amber sat with baby Logan. Bridget joined her and took her son back and Amber asked how she was doing. Amber felt badly for Jackie being caught in Bridget and Owen's scandal. She kindly offered to give a shaken Bridget a ride home. Amber then tried to question Bridget about Rick's availability and wondered if he was into someone else. Bridget hinted that her brother was interested in someone who was already taken.
Meanwhile, "statues" Owen and Rick fought over Jackie. Jackie, dressed as Venus, asked them not to fight in front of the Goddess of Love. Rick confidently stated that he'd be there for Jackie when Owen inevitably left her and Owen — wielding a foam statue head — chased after him again. Rick tried to calm him down and reminded them that a child is involved and Owen is going to want to be with his family. Owen insisted that he's not going to abandon his wife. "Are you this much trouble?" Jackie asked the statue head. Heh. Later, when the guys were back in their normal clothes, Jackie sat between them and tried to moderate a civil discussion. Bridget interrupted and demanded to know what Rick was doing. He replied that he was just getting everything out in the open. Jackie explained that Rick wanted to "help" his sister; Bridget wasn't pleased with this. Owen stated that Rick doesn't have a chance with his wife. Amber joined them with the baby and handed Logan to Owen. "I can't think of a single thing that would break us apart," Owen said of his marriage to Jackie. "I can," Rick replied, eyeing the baby.
At Forrester Creations, Thomas and Ridge continued to talk about Brooke and Stephanie's feud. They both wished that Steph would let go of her grudge. Thomas feared that the negativity wasn't healthy for his grandmother. Ridge worried about his mother, as well, and wondered what would happen if Stephanie and Brooke had to depend on each other.... At the hospital, the doctor questioned Stephanie about falling unconscious and said that there was no evidence of having been pushed. Steph admitted that she'd had shortness of breath. The doctor wanted additional tests done. Later, Stephanie filled in Brooke about how they'd put a tube down her throat. Brooke wondered why she was subjecting herself to unnecessary tests. Steph kept coughing as she waited for the results and was surprised to see Brooke in her hospital room. Brooke asked what Steph would say if Brooke told her that she's remarkable. "I'd say that you're even more heavily medicated than I am," Stephanie cracked. Stephanie became alarmed and asked why her rival was making nice; Brooke assured her that she's fine. The doctor returned with the test results and advised Stephanie to stay at the hospital. Stephanie demanded to know what was going on. "I'm sorry, you have cancer," the doctor sadly informed her.
