The TV MegaSite's Tuesday 8/20/19 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope sits and talks to Beth and that she will never take things for granted again. It is the way now like it should have been. Liam overhears it when she says she is going to fix it. She tells him she will have questions about Phoebe and the adoption but for now she wants to concentrate on their future. Ridge keeps trying but can’t get a hold of Thomas. Brooke tells him now that Flo and Reese are in custody the police will be questioning anyone who knew about Beth and that will include Thomas. Ridge says he knows and he wants to help Thomas through this but he can’t if he cannot find him. Douglas comes in and says his dad is still not home. He thinks he does not like Douglas anymore now that he told Beth’s secret. Brooke says they are not mad at him. Ridge says he did good; they are very proud of him. He tells Brooke later that Thomas is away trying to get his head on straight. And once he does that he will come back for Hope and Douglas. Justin drops in on Hope and Liam. He tells them how sorry he is that all of this happened but he is here now to do whatever they need to get their life back in order. He has talked to Carter who is also sorry for his part in all of this. Liam says he was not at fault. Justin says unless Steffy pushes back he thinks the paperwork will all go okay. Hope says she just wants to make sure the birth certificate is legitimate and ironclad. Hope gives her condolences for his loss of his niece, Emma. He says it was awful and he is just throwing himself into work to try to forget. That is why he is helping Carter. Liam fills him in on so much that Thomas has done, manipulating his own five year old son and then Hope to marry him. Hope wants to make sure she gets out of that. Thomas is holed up with Vinny and Thomas’s nerves are on end, helped by the faulty air conditioning and only a fan to cool them off some. And he grumbles that he feels like an idiot, like some college roomie on Vinny’s couch. He rants that he has to get back to Hope; get her away from Liam who has such a smug face. He says Vinny has no idea what he went through to get Hope and he did not even get a wedding night.

Brooke and Ridge end up saying different things. She says she knows sometimes it seems she is the only one with something at stake. She knows he does with his son too. When she calls Thomas dangerous he disagrees with her. That is not his son. He had nothing to do with Emma’s death. At that moment there is knock on the door and it is Sgt. Sanchez who needs to ask them a few questions. Brooke invites him in and first he asks if Thomas is there; he has a few questions for him. Ridge goes through that he is not here now and no they do not know when he will return. He doesn’t always check in with them. Brooke wants to know if Thomas is in trouble. Sanchez says that depends. They are re-opening the Emma Barber accident. Brooke asks why and the Sgt. replies that new evidence has come to light of a not so friendly spat on the night she died. Ridge tells him that Xander is wrong. This is his son they are talking about and the Sgt. seems to be implying he could be a murderer and he is not. Vinny tells Thomas that he needs to calm down; he has never known him to be like this. Thomas says yes of course, he is right. He just needs to get to Hope, get her away from Liam and talk to her. She would not like to see him stressed like this. He said his vows and he meant them – to death do they part. And that is the way it will be. Anything else is unacceptable. Alone he vows that Hope is his.
