The Bold and the Beautiful recap features an out-and-out criminal getting away with all of her crimes. Every. Single. One of them!
B&B Recap Highlights
In this episode, Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) bid county lockup — and a hopelessly-in-love cohort — goodbye and set about making sure Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) knew just how grateful she was for his interference. Elsewhere, Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) learned that her past actions have severe consequences in the present. Now, let’s take a deeper look into what went on.
Sheila Carter Is A Free Woman
Much to the horror of the Finnegans, Sheila is declared free to go. What? Huh? How can this be? There’s no way that their testimony — or lack thereof — could have been the only thing standing between Sheila and a prison cell.
Actually, that’s exactly the case, Judge Craig McMullen (Joe Lando) explains. Thanks to Mike’s (Ken Hanes) affidavit — the one in which he takes full responsibility for Sheila’s escape — there was nothing, save the couple’s own words, that could have swayed him to keep Sheila imprisoned.
And his decision had absolutely nothing to do with a bribe in the form of a weekend on Bill Spencer’s (Don Diamont) yacht. No, that’s pure coincidence. Yes, coincidence.
Bull, screeches Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who, after catching sight of Bill in the judge’s chamber, takes her ex to task for siding with Sheila — the Devil incarnate. How could he be so blind? So out and out stupid? So not caring when it comes to the safety of his grandchildren? Surely, he knows that the Sheila Carter wouldn’t hesitate to use Kelly or Phoebe to get to Finn (Tanner Novlan) or Hayes.
Perish the thought, says Bill. Steffy has his word that Sheila wouldn’t dare target those little girls, Steffy’s son, or anybody else she cares about. He’s got this all under control.
Bold and the Beautiful Recap: Misty Water Colored Memories
Despite the fact that he’s still stuck in prison blues while Sheila is free and clear, Mike does not bear a grudge. Mike loves her. Mike wants only the very best for her. Mike will miss her. Luckily, Mike will be comforted by his memories.
Ah, yes, memories of Sheila. Like the time she sicced a Doberman on him to teach him a lesson in loyalty. Or the time she threatened him to always remain on her good side because those that displeased her didn’t fare too well. Well, at least there was that smooch he blackmailed her into giving him. The image of that will sustain him for months, maybe even years to come…and it’ll have to, since Sheila wouldn’t give him another one. And he asked so politely too.
Taylor Didn’t See This Coming
Dr. Hayes’s day began with such promise. First, there was the patient who was making such excellent progress. Then, there was that stirring conversation with Eric Forrester (John McCook). And hanging in the air was the sweet smell of justice being served…or so Taylor thought. How wrong she was.
When a joyful Taylor made it to the cliff house, she was blindsided by Finn and Steffy’s sad faces. What’s going on here, she wondered. Why weren’t her daughter and son-in-law celebrating Sheila being jailed? Because of Bill, came the reply. “Bill said that if we testify against Sheila, he’ll let it be known that he was shot too…By you!”
B&B Recap: The Future Is Bleak
Try as she might, Sheila just can’t believe that she’s a free woman. How did she ever get so lucky? Well, that she knew. It was thanks to Bill. It was Bill who convinced Steffy and Finn not to testify, and it was Bill who arranged for his in-pocket judge to oversee the case. Sheila is grateful to Bill. So, so grateful. And she intends to thank Bill every day for the rest of their lives. She’s his now, all his. They’ll be partners till the end. Like a latter-day Lord and Lady Macbeth. What fun they’ll have. What havoc they’ll wreak.
