A lot can happen in a day in Los Angeles, so it’s easy to get lost. If you’ve missed anything that happened over the last week or so on the soap, our THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL recaps can help you get back up to speed in no time!
While working at Bikini Bar, Flo eavesdropped on Hope and was dismayed to see what her lies had done to the grief-stricken blonde. She felt compelled to tell Hope everything, but was thwarted by Zoe, who covered by explaining to Hope that Flo was Phoebe’s birth mom. Liam had a, “Wait… what?” reaction when his wife later explained who she’d just met. Meanwhile, Wyatt was surprised to bump into Flo — an old flame of his from high school — at Bikini Bar, and the two spent some time reminiscing about their former relationship. Wyatt told his ex all about the current love of his life, Sally, and suggested she come meet the redhead at an informal dinner party he was planning to throw at his place.
Dinner and a Show
When Flo arrived at Wyatt and Sally’s for the dinner, she was thrown to discover that Hope and Liam were also on the guest list! Needless to say, the former Vegas croupier found it difficult to sit through dinner acting like everything was hunky-dory. Wyatt, meanwhile, was stunned when Hope remarked on Flo being Phoebe’s birth mom, since she hadn’t mentioned to him that she’d birthed any babies since last they saw one another. Sally tried, unsuccessfully, to break the awkward tension in the room, but things got dicey when a secretly guilt-ridden Flo urged Hope to try to have another child to help ease her pain.
After Flo posted a social media snap of herself hanging out with Wyatt, Sally, Hope and Liam, Zoe freaked. She jumped out of bed with Xander and headed straight to Flo’s apartment to confront her about fraternizing with Hope! Flo acknowledged she thought they ought to come clean with the truth, Zoe reminded her that they’d all likely go to jail if she did. Reese ultimately made a convincing case to both women as to why they ought to take the secret to their graves. Flo, however, remained conflicted.
Steffy Said Goodbye
Given the tenuous state of Hope and Liam’s marriage (including her insistence that he’d be better off with Kelly’s mom), Steffy decided to make herself scarce in order to give the couple time to work things out. Steffy told the couple that she was moving to Europe with Phoebe and Kelly. Not wanting to miss out on time with Phoebe, Hope reacted with anger, saying Liam should not be kept from his daughter. Nevertheless, Steffy insisted that her decision was final and was the best thing for all of them. Taylor chastised her daughter for bowing out when she had a clear opening to reunite with Liam. She urged her to stay and fight for the man she loved, but Steffy would not be swayed and patently disagreed when her mother tried to compare Hope to Brooke.
A Batie Reunion?
Donna, Justin, Wyatt and Sally all conspired to arrange a meeting at Il Giardino between an unsuspecting Katie and Bill. The exes enjoyed their surprise lunch together and wondered who may have set them up. Later, Thomas and his son, Douglas, returned to Los Angeles with the sad news of Caroline’s death and received a warm welcome from the Forrester family as well as Sally, who made a point of clearing the air with her former beau. Thomas asked a big favor of Wyatt and Liam.
