The TV MegaSite's Thursday 5/23/19 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy and the girls are home safe. Hope shocks Brooke by saying she made a tough decision by telling Liam that she is ending their marriage. Brooke takes a big breath and says she cannot keep doing this to Liam. Hope says yes she married Liam but circumstances have changed. Likewise Thomas ends up talking with his dad while they are working and he says things are going great with Hope and he hopes Ridge will see it that way too; best for Liam to be with Steffy and the girls and Hope has said as much. And Hope wants to be the mommy in Douglas’s life so all will be happy. Ridge says of course he wants everyone to be happy but he has learned over the years that no one can accept everyone’s advice and re-position their lives to suit others. Liam tries to tell Steffy his news about Hope but Steffy is super busy with her girls and can’t settle down to listen just to him. He’s going nowhere and keeps suggesting she could take a nap while the girls are down or will be there when they do wake up. Thomas tells Ridge that he and everyone else knows how he loves Hope so he hopes he won’t interfere. Ridge says surely he knows that Hope is in love with Liam, always has been. Thomas throws out some psychobabble and Ridge says he has been listening to his mother. Thomas says yes she trained him well. Brooke tells Hope that she thinks the only thing in the way here is that Hope does not feel good enough, but she is. Slowly Liam says more about Hope and how devoted she is to Douglas. Right now he is the only child she can think about and he feels the same for her. And he knows Thomas is her brother but he has his own agenda. She and Hope are now on the same team and are pulling together for Liam to be with Steffy and his girls and she with Douglas. Steffy says Thomas can be tenacious but he can be told no. Liam says yes but not if Hope doesn’t want to tell him no.

Hope tells Brooke she will always love Liam but she cannot give him what he wants and needs so she is doing what he does want, his family with Steffy. Brooke tells her if she goes through with this she will be making a mistake. Hope replies that the only mistake she made was going to Catalina and then losing Beth there. Steffy can focus on Kelly and Liam will have both Kelly and Phoebe and Hope will have Douglas who is yearning for a mother. It is the only way she can ever live with herself. Phoebe wakes up and Liam goes to get her and gives her a bottle. This leaves Steffy alone and she quickly looks at the fantasy photo on the wall. He waxes on that he missed her and the girls so much. And he does not want to hurt Hope but the more he fights for his marriage the more he feels like he is tormenting her and not accepting her wishes. So maybe Hope is right that love is just not enough to build a sturdy marriage on. Steffy assures him that her door is always open and he can spend as much time as he wants with Kelly and Phoebe no matter where he sleeps at night. Her heart just melts when she sees him with the girls. This will always be his home.
