Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of March 7, 2011
Steffy confronted Bill at Spencer Publications and accused him of pushing Amber over the cliff (not telling him that she'd actually saved Amber). He denied it and explained that a tree knocked her over the edge. Steffy didn't believe him. He challenged her and asked if she'd actually seen him push her. Steffy noted that he'd been wearing gloves and had made her get out of there. Steffy revealed that she hadn't left and had found a call from him on Amber's cell phone. Bill insisted that he was innocent. "You were never there," he stated, "and neither was I." Steffy refused to play along and asked if he'd hit Amber. Bill replied that it was best if Steffy didn't get involved in the investigation of Amber's "death," but she didn't want to lie for him. "I didn't kill her," he repeated, but admitted that he'd wanted to. Steffy pressed for more answers about what had happened at the Malibu house. Bill confessed that he'd planned to kill Amber, but that she didn't die by his hand. "I wasn't there and neither were you," he repeated. Steffy again implored him to be honest with the cops.
Meanwhile, Donna visited Justin at work and was pleased when his secretary called her "Mrs. Barber." She noted that she'd seen Bill earlier and he'd been acting oddly. Justin believed that Bill was upset because of Amber ruining Liam's life. The newlyweds forget about Bill for a moment and kissed, but were interrupted by Marcus. He informed them that he's returning to Paris for work. He wanted to say good-bye to Bill, but they told Marcus how out of sorts Bill was. Justin and Donna bashed Amber, but Marcus defended her. Justin asked his son how well he knows Amber. Marcus shrugged that they're friends; Justin implored him to stay away from her. He and Donna then said good-bye to their son as he left for his trip.
Bill was shocked beyond belief when an alive Amber stopped by his office. She thanked Steffy for saving her and he was even more surprised to learn that Steffy knew she hadn't died. Amber blamed the branch for knocking her over, but planned to get her baby checked out. She was relieved to hear that Liam was home. After Amber left, a furious Bill asked Steffy why she hadn't told him the truth. She retorted that he should be grateful that she saved him from an attempted murder charge. She then reamed him out for putting a pregnant Amber in danger. "She needs to be stopped!" he declared. "Not like this!" Steffy argued and tearfully pointed out that it would break Liam's heart to know that his dad was even thinking of killing someone. Bill explained that he wants to protect Liam, but Steffy implored him to just accept the situation and deal with it in another way. She added that they need each other because his life is out of control. He promised that he wouldn't think about murdering Amber again and Steffy promised to keep his secret.
At Bill's office, Steffy made him promise that he wouldn't try to kill Amber again. She hugged him and explained that she was protecting him because she didn't want him to throw his life away. Bill kept saying that he didn't shove Amber over the cliff, but Steffy pressed him to admit that he would've killed Amber had nature not intervened. She urged him to talk to her and promised that he could trust her.
Donna paid Katie a surprise visit at the beach house and found her sister wearing nothing but lingerie. Katie explained that she was expecting Bill. Donna shared that Bill has been acting “off” and noted that Steffy had been in his office. Katie refused to even consider the idea that something was going on between them, but Donna reminded her how vindictive Steffy can be. Katie insisted on trusting her husband. “I'm not worried about Steffy,” she stated. Later, Bill returned home and found an eager Katie waiting for him. “Welcome home,” she purred, as they kissed. “Thank you,” he told her as they gave in to their passion. Later, she asked about Steffy and warned him to be careful around the other woman.
Taylor stopped by Ridge's place to again complain about Thomas and Brooke. She was also concerned about Steffy being interested in Bill. Ridge wasn't too worried, but Taylor believed that their daughter was “vulnerable.” Ridge promised to keep an eye on Steffy. Meanwhile, Thomas and Brooke had some male models don the Taboo designs. Thomas asked Brooke how she felt about him dating around. Brooke replied that she's happy for him and Dayzee, and saw them kiss. He asked if she'd been spying on him and she became embarrassed. Brooke then said that he and Dayzee were lucky to have found each other. “Lucky for you, too,” he added, noting that since he's dating Dayzee Taylor will leave Brooke alone. He added that Dayzee is special, but praised having Brooke as a partner. Thomas mentioned the “mistake” he'd made by kissing her on the plane. Taylor arrived at the office and overheard Brooke discussing their “inappropriate secret.”
Taylor kept thinking about how she'd overheard Brooke mention her kiss with Thomas. Meanwhile, Oliver took photos of Brooke and Thomas for the Taboo line. Ridge approved when Brooke removed her vest to show off her tight top. Thomas suggested that they take another trip overseas and Ridge agreed.
After Ridge and Thomas stepped out, Brooke informed Ollie of Hope and Liam's breakup. Brooke encouraged Ollie to pursue Hope again, but suggested that he not pressure her. Just then, Hope arrived and wondered what they were talking about. Oliver showed Hope the latest pictures he'd taken of her and praised her for being such a skilled model. Hope asked if he knew about the breakup and he confirmed it. He sincerely told her how sorry he was and promised that things would be okay. He then showed her some photo booth pictures from one of their first dates and they reminisced about the night. He tried to recreate the night by having them do another set of fun photo booth poses. At the end, he kissed her on the cheek.
Thomas returned to his office and Taylor confronted him about the kiss. Thomas insisted that it wasn't what she thought, but Taylor, of course, wouldn't listen and put all of the blame on Brooke. "Brooke has worked her way through every single man in the Forrester family," boomed Taylor (who herself has been with Ridge, Thorne, Rick and has kissed Eric). Still, Taylor continued with her rant. Thomas demanded that she stop and took the blame for the kiss, but Taylor wouldn't believe it. "You're being ridiculous," Thomas stated, but Taylor disagreed and accused Brooke of having no impulse control. Thomas admitted that Ridge doesn't know about the kiss and that he'd implored Brooke to keep quiet. He asked his mom to do the same.... Ridge and Brooke discussed what a gifted designer Thomas is. Ridge was also pleased that Thomas was turning out to be such a ladies' man. Brooke looked guilty as she thought about the kiss. Later, Brooke alarmed Thomas when she made a joke about leaving Forrester Creations. Thomas filled her in on his conversation with Taylor. Brooke feared that Taylor would tell Ridge about the kiss, but trusted that her husband would understand.... Taylor went to see Ridge and told him about the kiss.
Taylor continued to rant about Brooke and Thomas's kiss. Ridge asked if she misheard what they'd said, but she was certain and added that Thomas had admitted it. Taylor explained how he'd kissed Brooke while she was sleeping, but still blamed the other woman for Thomas's actions. She advised Ridge to cancel Taboo.
Meanwhile, Thomas and Brooke hoped that Taylor hadn't said anything, but were sure that she had. Thomas planned to later explain to Ridge what had really happened. Brooke feared that it would ruin Thomas and Ridge's relationship, but Thomas was sure that he and his dad would be fine. Brooke wanted to be the one to tell Ridge.
After, Thomas joined Steffy at work, but was annoyed with her when she made a crack about Dayzee. Steffy sensed that something else was going on with her brother. Thomas confessed to kissing Brooke on the plane. "What the hell is wrong with you?" Steffy yelled — and of course, also blamed Brooke for his actions. Thomas defended Brooke and took all of the blame, and asked his sister to support him.
Taylor ran to find Stephanie and filled her in on the kiss. Stephanie was shocked, but Taylor was all, "I told you so." Taylor believed that Ridge would cancel Taboo to protect Thomas from "the inevitable," a.k.a sleeping with Brooke. She then went on about how Brooke has duped Steph into believing all of her lies and was sure that Brooke would go after Thomas. Taylor didn't think that Ridge would forgive Brooke this time.... Brooke went to speak with Ridge and realized that Taylor had gotten to him first. Ridge was mainly upset with her for keeping the kiss secret. Ridge wondered if Taylor had been right. Brooke argued that Taylor's the one who put the idea of her and Thomas out there and made her out to be "forbidden fruit." Still, Brooke apologized for not telling him and asked for his forgiveness.
Brooke promised Ridge that she'd never keep another secret from him and asked for his forgiveness. Ridge was upset with her for not telling him about Thomas's kiss immediately. Brooke explained that she'd just been trying to salvage his and Thomas's relationship and didn't mean to make things worse. Ridge replied that he wasn't angry; he was just disappointed and concerned. Brooke again apologized.
Meanwhile, Stephanie tried to understand how Brooke could kiss Thomas; Taylor explained that Thomas was the one who did the kissing — and painted a picture of Brooke as the seductress who didn't think the kiss was a big deal. Steph asked if Taylor was really hoping that Ridge would leave Brooke for her. Taylor insisted that she's happily married to Whip, then turned her focus back on Brooke keeping the kiss secret. Then she blamed Brooke for being so sexual that Thomas just couldn't stay away. She believed that Brooke enjoyed having all of the Forrester men lusting after her.
Dayzee went to see Pam at FC and ran into Thomas. Pam revealed that Dayzee had made a care package for Marcus, who was in Paris. After, Dayzee admired some photos from the Taboo shoot and Thomas filled her in on everything that was happening in his family. He feared that it would affect the line, but was confident that Brooke could get through to Ridge.
Later, Thomas went to see his father and asked if they could talk. Ridge asked how the kiss happened. Thomas insisted that the kiss was harmless and added that he'd requested that Brooke not say anything. "You disrespect me and my marriage," Ridge said angrily. "Like father, like son," Thomas shot back, reminding Ridge of how he'd stolen Brooke from Eric. Ridge argued that that situation was complex and asked if Thomas loves Brooke. Thomas replied that he's not "In love" with her. Ridge didn't understand what made him want to kiss his stepmother. Thomas shrugged that it was just an impulse. Ridge called it inappropriate, but Thomas didn't think it was a big deal. Ridge believed that his son was fighting genuine romantic feelings for Brooke. "Get over it," Thomas stated. Ridge was frustrated by his son's lack of respect and decided to cancel Taboo.
Meanwhile, Brooke joined Taylor and Stephanie and confirmed that Thomas did kiss her. Steph said that she was disappointed with her and Brooke agreed that she should've said something. Taylor accused her of trying to "corrupt" Thomas and called her rival a tramp. Brooke asked if she could speak with Stephanie alone; Taylor implored Steph not to listen to Brooke. After, Brooke tried to talk into Stephanie, but Taylor interrupted to bash Brooke. Brooke asked Steph to not let the kiss affect their newfound friendship, but Stephanie was clearly annoyed. Brooke promised that it wouldn't happen again and that she'd never betray Ridge. "How can you do something so stupid?" Stephanie cried and asked her to go. Brooke's eyes filled with tears.
