B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Steffy cries that they cannot apologize and just take Phoebe away. This is the only home she has ever had and it’s happening too fast. Hope explains that Steffy has been a wonderful mother and they will do all they can to make this transition go smoothly. She is taking Beth home tonight. Ridge says there is no reason it has to be right now. Brooke says too much time has been wasted already. Hope says she is sorry but she and Liam are taking Beth home to be a family where she should have been all along. She is sorry but it is time for Steffy to let Beth go. Steffy cries that she realizes this is a life changing moment for them but it is for her too. Takes a while but Wyatt explains to Sally all the sordid details of Hope’s baby being kidnapped and sold and now a secret between Flo and Thomas that Douglas overheard has proven that Phoebe is actually Beth. So Hope and Liam will have their baby they thought was dead. Sally listens and says in reference to Flo that no one is perfect. Wyatt says that is why he had to come see her and say he is sorry for dropping her for a secret much less worse. He realized he had been unfair. He is sorry how he handled things and how quickly he moved on with Flo. She wonders if this is him now wanting to lower the bar and wanting to take her back. She reminds him they are in Los Angeles and there are plenty of Prince Charmings out there so the chances of her having pity on him and taking him back is…….He says he did not come here with any expectations. He just wanted to talk to her the way they used to. Ridge holds onto Steffy as she tries to speak. She says that she only knows this baby as Phoebe since the day she brought her home and she can’t just turn a switch. Liam looks pained. Ridge asks if they can’t just take a few days before they have to take Beth. Steffy can’t believe that Zoe’s father could do something like this. Liam says he really was a terrible man thinking only of himself. Liam says and Flo knew all along and claimed to be Phoebe’s birth mother and signed a bunch of phony documents. Brooke adds and not to forget Thomas. He knew too and never said a word. Liam tells Steffy that he knows her heart is breaking as his is breaking for her as well. And he is sorry as Beth is doing so well. She is the person she is because of Steffy. Beth is so happy and curious and that is all Steffy. But he adds Hope was robbed. She never got the chance to raise her daughter or to teach her or love her and she blamed herself for that when she thought she could not deliver Beth alive. And it put her in a deep depression which will take time to heal.

Liam tells Steffy that he cares for her so much and how they move forward in this defining moment will be huge. Hope adds that it is time for both of them to put their futures together for the best possible futures for both of their daughters. It is time for them both to take charge of their lives again and she is starting now. Steffy cries that Phoebe has been hers since the beginning and she and Kelly have literally changed her life. She’s given them both all her love and affection. And she would give her life sacrificing it for them. But she was not prepared for this. She is not prepared for this now. She wants to fight it. She tries to smile through tears and says she loves them too much. Beth cries and Steffy says “Beth”, and that is Hope’s baby. She needs to be with her mom. She needs to be with Hope. Sally tells Wyatt that IF she were to even consider taking him back he would have to wine and dine her filet and champagne and there would have to be oodles of spa treatments. He says and that probably would be in Hawaii. She jokes it would be like boot camp and she would make sure he suffered for it. He says fine but if it puts that smile on her face like right now then it would be worth it. He gives her a hearty hug which she returns. Ridge tells Liam they will find Reese Buckingham and have him arrested. Hope says they are still one big, blended family. Always have been and always will. Steffy comes back and places Beth in Hope's arms. She tells Beth it has been so wonderful to see her grow up but it is time for Mommy to let her go. This is not goodbye as she will always see her but she has to give her to Hope now. She hands her to Hope and slowly she, Beth and Liam go out the door. Steffy falls to the floor dissolving in Ridge’s arms.
