B&B Recap Written by Wanda

With a power outage Hope is in a darkened room about to give birth. Dr. Buckingham tells her just to remain as calm and relaxed as she can. She holds his hand and thanks him for staying with her. Matt and Kieran keep munching on their goodies and talking Liam’s head off about trivial things. Bill calls Brooke and this is the first she has heard that Liam cannot get the helicopter out tonight and that Hope is in labor. Brooke wants to go as Hope will need her. Bill says there is nothing he won’t do for Liam or his granddaughter but he is not sure the helicopter can fly in these winds. Brooke manages to get through to Hope on the phone. Hope says she is scared and needs Liam. Only Dr. Buckingham is here. Brooke says Liam will be there as soon as he possibly can and she and Ridge will follow soon. She grouses to Ridge that her daughter cannot be having a baby in these conditions. Ridge says she does have a OB/GYN so she will come through just fine. And even though he doesn’t like Spencer he knows he will fly that copter himself if he has to get Liam there. Dr. Buckingham gets a text from the thug and warns him about his beautiful daughter being worth $200,000. He calls Zoe and says he was just thinking of her. As imperfect as he is he just wanted her to know that she is the world to him. He informs her that the power is out and no one else around and Hope is about to deliver. He says he loves her.

Bill walks in on Brooke and Ridge to inform him they cannot leave now but he will get Liam to Catalina as soon as possible. About that time the pilot shows up and grabs Liam and they leave the pad. Dr. Buckingham calls the thug and says he will get his money so just leave his daughter alone. Both Ridge and Bill try to convince Brooke that Hope will deliver a healthy baby girl. Zoe walks in and says she just spoke with her dad and all is fine. Hope is all right. Meanwhile Hope smiles for the first time and says Liam is on his way. Dr. Buckingham tells Hope this is his specialty. He is focused on her and the baby and he has delivered more babies than he can count. Bill gets word that the pilot and Liam are on the way. Brooke is elated. Dr. Buckingham encourages Hope to push again as the baby is coming. But the monitor shows the pressure is lowering and Hope falls back on her pillow, eyes closed, without a move.
