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!
The holidays got off to a tense start when Hope made it clear she didn’t want Taylor involved in the Forrester family festivities. Taylor admitted to Reese that she’d done something terrible in the past which Brooke was now using against her. Ultimately, the Forresters, Logans, Avants and Spencers came together to make Kelly’s first Christmas a special one. Pam and Charlie’s Christmas dinner could have been a disaster, but the Logan sisters came to the rescue. At the end of the day, Eric reminded everyone of the true meaning of Christmas and the importance of family. Unfortunately, Rick was not among those in attendance, as it turned out that he and Maya were getting a divorce!
Zoe Had Concerns
Ridge and Steffy spent some much needed father/ daughter time together, after which he gave her a special gift to pass on to Taylor. Ridge then went to work where he surprised Brooke with a kiss and made her a special promise about their future. As Reese and Taylor continued getting closer, Zoe couldn’t help but wonder what her dad was up to. The model also insisted that her father stop pretending he’d moved to L.A. to be closer to her, saying they both knew that was baloney. Although Reese insisted that his days of being irresponsible were over, his daughter wasn’t convinced. And sure enough, he began getting harassed by a ver y scary man who insisted that Reese pay up what he owed!
Liam Raced to Get to Hope!

Hope suggested her hubby check on his daughter and then meet her at the airport. While doing so, Liam promised Steffy that he would always be there for her and Kelly. Meanwhile, Hope was at the airport awaiting her husband’s arrival. She wound up crossing paths with Matt and Kieran — who’d previously wound up on flights with both Quinn and Sally — and the pair, upon recognizing Hope, declared they were huge fans of her work. As Hope began to get nervous that Liam might not make it, he was at the hospital with Steffy and Kelly. Hope wound up heading to Catalina without Liam, who said he would catch the next flight. But soon after arriving on Catalina Island, Hope went into labor! The hotel manager helped her get to the clinic, where it turned out that the doctor on duty was none other than Reese Buckingham! Bad weather prevented Liam from being able to join his wife, so he went to Bill and asked if he could use his dad’s helicopter. After signing off on that plan, Bill called Brooke to let her know Hope was in labor and Liam was on his way to Catalina. Already regretting having left L.A., Hope was freaked when the power went out at the clinic. Reese assured Hope everything would be fine, but things took a tragic turn…
