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!
Steffy proved supportive of Hope and Liam when the newlyweds encountered a potential medical issue with their unborn child, but this show of solidarity soon splintered when Ridge announced that Forrester Creations could afford to keep either the Intimates line or Hope For The Future — but not both! Brooke was miffed with her hubby for even considering the idea of axing her daughter’s label, while Steffy cornered Hope and asked her to “do the right thing” by bowing out gracefully. Brooke was certain that Steffy’s brazen attitude was really just payback for losing Liam to Hope.
Ridge Played Favorites
Everyone waited with bated breath until Ridge nally declared that he’d chosen to keep the Intimates line. But his explanation for why he made that decision did little to allay angry tempers in the room. Steffy ultimately lashed out at Hope, and the proverbial gloves later came off. In hurling accusations at one another, Steffy landed the coup de grace when she declared to the blonde that, unlike her, she didn’t need a man to feel complete! Sally, meanwhile, decided to hedge her bets by approaching Steffy to get in her good graces, hopeful that this eventually would further her career.
Brooke Defended Bill
Bill was surprised to discover that he had an unlikely ally in his fight to retain custody of Will: his ex-wife, Brooke! When Brooke told him that she didn’t agree with Katie’s decision to file for full custody, he beseeched her to speak with her sister and try to talk her out of it. Brooke agreed — with one very big stipulation. Ridge and Brooke weren’t seeing eye to eye on the situation with Hope and Steffy, but they agreed to call a temporary truce rather than continue to argue. Ridge couldn’t help but wonder, however, why his wife seemed to still have such sympathy for Bill, who in his estimation, didn’t deserve it. Brooke met with Katie and urged her not to deny Bill custody of his son. When Brooke reported back to Bill, he was very grateful for her support — and he showed her as much!
Zoe Seized the Moment!
Zoe eavesdropped on Xander making romantic plans with Emma, and when her rival left the scene, the vixen stepped in to flirt up a storm with her ex! Xander later surprised Emma by reserving a romantic beachside cabana at The Bikini Bar. There, things began to heat up for the young couple until Emma slammed on the brakes, saying she just wasn’t ready to take things to the next level. When Emma departed, Zoe — who was conveniently on the scene — entered the cabana to pick up with Xander where Emma had left off, so to speak!
Katie felt anguished over the steps she was taking to pursue full custody of her son, but Thorne was there to quell her doubts, assuring the beauty that he would be with her through every step of this legal battle. Bill naturally blamed Thorne for instigating this impasse in the first place, and he vowed that Katie would never succeed in her quest. Thorne ultimately decided that the time couldn’t be better to prove to Katie how committed he was to both her and her son. And so, he stunned the brunette by asking her to marry him!
