The TV MegaSite's Thursday 7/4/19 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Liam seems distracted. Steffy pulls it out of him that he was thinking of just being at Hope’s. He hopes the girls will awake after being on the beach and now with fireworks tonight. Thomas tells Hope that his dad and Brooke are at the pool asking about her. Douglas is counting on her coming. Thomas says he knows it was a stunner to learn that Liam not only was co-parenting with Steffy but they are a couple again. But she knew Liam was moving in so she should have expected this. Hope apologizes to Ridge and Brooke for not joining them. Ridge says it is okay, she just needed some time to herself to reflect. She says she knew Liam would be with Steffy but she did not expect they would connect again so soon. She cannot pretend that it doesn’t hurt. Their life will be beautiful and there will be all those firsts - birthdays, celebrations, holidays and ball games. But she will join them for the rest of the day. She does not want to let Douglas down. It will be his best July 4th ever. Steffy tells Liam that he is making it sound like Thomas is obsessed with Hope. Liam says she said it, not him. She sees nothing wrong with Thomas now seeing Hope or planning a future for them.

Thomas notices Douglas is not exactly having fun so he sits and explains his mommy is not coming back from Heaven but he knows she would be happy if Douglas were happy. And he is happy with Hope. So here is what they need to do. He pulls out a gorgeous engagement ring and says he would like to give it to Hope. Then he coaches him how to tell Hope that he’d like her for his mommy now. But Douglas cannot tell Hope. It is their little secret and it will be special. They practice and Thomas tells him good job. Hope gets ready for the fireworks. She goes outside and at his place so does Liam. She remembers telling Liam last year on that day as the fireworks go off that she was pregnant. Ridge cradles Brooke in his arms and says he knows she is worried about Hope but she is a strong woman and he does not think she is second guessing her marriage. Liam is right where he wants to be with Steffy. At Steffy’s both Steffy and Liam hold a girl and watch the fireworks. She mentions this must be bittersweet since he just found out about Beth last year at this time. He says he is not comparing them but it is comforting to be around Phoebe. They must be about the same age. She really feels like his daughter. As Thomas and Hope watch their own fireworks, Douglas comes to Hope and says he is so happy when he is with her. And he wants her to be happy too. He pulls out the ring and holds it up to Hope. He says he loves her. He wants her to be his mommy and marry his daddy. Hope is stunned and of course Thomas pretends this is all news to him.
