The TV MegaSite's Friday 8/23/19 Short Recaps


B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge paces with his phone in hand. Brooke says if Thomas is not going to pick up then maybe they need to go look for him. They need to find him before anything else happens. Hope comes in before they say more but Ridge is not happy that Brooke brought up a few of Thomas’s dangerous positions in the past. So when it comes to her daughter she does not want to see his anger happen again. Hope informs them that Liam is watching Beth at home while he is working and she is going to Steffy’s to get Beth’s things and Liam will join her there later. Ridge asks if she has heard from Thomas since he hasn’t. She says yes by phone and he knows that she is seeking an annulment. That doesn’t make Ridge happy either; maybe really pushing him now too quickly. Hope says she knows he is Ridge’s son but she wants nothing to do with Thomas ever again. Ridge tells Brooke that this is all unraveling a little too quickly and he does not know what they can do without seeing Thomas. She says he is out there just hiding as he knows he did wrong. Brooke says he knows that Douglas is scared of him and that Hope is ending her marriage so no telling what he might do now. Ridge replies that he is not asking everyone to forget but he would like to help and needs to be in touch with Thomas. She says Douglas needs his father and Ridge agrees. That is all Douglas talks about. He says this might sound like Taylor but he thinks therapy for both Douglas and Thomas would be a good idea. She assures him that he will always have her to rely on. Amelia stops by and speaks with them and says she should have told them but Thomas called her and wanted to see Douglas so she took him over after asking Douglas if that was okay and he said yes. Brooke is worried that Thomas is alone with Douglas. Ridge asks where this place is and Amelia shows him the address. He asks her to go back there and go inside and stay there until he knocks. Thomas starts off playing nice with Douglas, calling him Bud. He told him a secret but Thomas says he disobeyed him and told others and he doesn’t know why he did that. Douglas says he is sorry he made him mad but Hope had to know Beth was alive. Everybody has said he did the right thing. And Hope is so happy to have Beth back. Thomas says yeah, well that is the end of them. He hopes Douglas is happy now. Douglas says he misses his old daddy. Thomas is taken aback and asks what. Douglas says he is not like he used to be. He’s different now and he wants his old daddy back. Hope is happy now with Beth and his dad should be happy. Thomas says Douglas is too young to understand but his whole world has been flipped upside down. Douglas tells him that lying is bad for people. And Thomas is not bad; he is good. He is his best friend. Thomas seems to take notice of that. He even gets choked up and says he is sorry as this is not the way he should treat his son. He is his best friend too forever. He got so fixated on Hope that he forgot what was really important and that is Douglas. He squeezes him tightly and says he loves him so much. Douglas says he knows he misses Hope and he knows where she is. Thomas is grateful that Douglas knows and will tell him. He will talk to her and put his family back together.

Amelia soon arrives and Thomas leaves Douglas with her a little longer. Not far behind is Ridge who finds out Thomas has left. He sits with Douglas and says families are important and this is important. He needs to know where Thomas is. Douglas says he thinks he is with Hope at the beach house. Hope spends more time than she should at Steffy’s house, picking up and lovingly touching each stuffed animal and piece of clothing. Suddenly Thomas slips in and she looks up and has a shocked, scared look on her face. He starts nicely enough that he needed to talk to her. Really she did not have to get an annulment. She says she never wants to see him again. Gritting her teeth she says it is OVER between them. He still is not buying it and he moves closer to try and explain. She does not care to hear any more explanations and she tries to get past him but he blocks the door. She tells him that she will always be a part of Douglas’s life but she does not want to hear another word out of Thomas’s mouth. As she maneuvers a way to try and get past, she turns around and runs out the patio doors and ends up running toward the cliff. Thomas follows and with words going back and forth he eventually grabs her by both wrists so she cannot get away. Suddenly Brooke comes from around the house and spies them and runs toward them at the edge of the cliff, only a hedge separating them from the ocean floor below. She runs up and gets between Hope and Thomas. She seems to be telling Hope to run away, get away while she can. Her back is turned to Thomas but she instinctively gives him a shove so he cannot reach Hope. Ridge runs up just as Thomas goes over the hedge, splat! Ridge looks at Brooke with hatred in his eyes.
