A lot can happen in a day in Los Angeles, so it’s easy to get lost. If you’ve missed anything that happened over the last week or so on the soap, our THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL recaps can help you get back up to speed in no time!
While Quinn, Eric, Hope and Steffy all waited and wondered about the outcome of Bill and Katie’s custody suit, Judge McMullen was across town ruling in Katie’s favor (much to Ridge’s delight). Liam and Wyatt were concerned when Bill went missing following the proceeding. He eventually turned up at Liam’s house, where he spent some time with Kelly and, in many ways, seemed to be a contrite man. A troubled Will asked Katie and Thorne how often he would be able to visit with his dad. Ridge couldn’t resist taunting Bill about his legal defeat. Later, at Will’s request, Katie allowed Bill to spend some time with their son.
Brooke Did Recon
After overhearing a conversation that wasn’t meant for her ears, Brooke suspected foul play was involved in the custody ruling. She made a surprise visit to the judge and ended up catching him in a lie — one that confirmed to her that Ridge had interfered in the case. When she returned home, Ridge was stunned by the ferocity of her anger after he made a dig at Bill’s expense. She lashed out at Ridge for his misdeeds, accusing him of being more concerned about getting even with Bill than with Will’s best interests. Ridge reminded his wife that many lives would be ruined if she went public with the truth — including their own! Nevertheless, Brooke felt compelled to tell Katie the truth after swearing her to secrecy.
Steffy Saw a Smooch!
Steffy was puzzled about the recent tension in her dad’s marriage and asked why he and Brooke were arguing. Meanwhile, wracked with guilt, Brooke visited a heartsick Bill, who made an admission of regret before initiating another forbidden kiss. Little did they know that an unseen Steffy got a good gander at their liplock! Shocked, the brunette tried forcing her stepmom to admit what she’d done, but Brooke balked, prompting Steffy to run to Ridge and fill him in. Ridge reeled from the news, and when husband and wife finally confronted one another, each hurled accusations of disloyalty. Brooke didn’t exactly help her case when she inadvertently let it slip that her kiss with Bill was actually the second of its kind!
Guilt Got the Best of Katie
After learning that Ridge strong-armed Judge McMullen into siding with her, Katie was forced to consider Brooke’s plea to let Bill spend more time with Will without getting the courts involved. Katie struggled with her conscience when she watched Bill bond with their son while helping the boy with his homework. Katie finally delivered important news to Bill about their son.
Emma Lashed Out
While participating in his first professional modeling shoot for the Intimates line, Xander got a few pointers from Zoe, who was eager to help her ex get into the swing of things while posing in his skivvies. Emma witnessed their closeness and threw a jealous fit, upset that Xander seemed to be en- joying every minute of his time with Zoe. Overhearing the confrontation, Zoe intervened, which only succeed in adding fuel to Emma’s fiery anger. When she left in a huff, Zoe told Xander it wasn’t fair that his sweetheart was trying to sabotage his career. Emma met up with an old friend, Tiffany, who warned her not to let history repeat itself.
