The Bold and the Beautiful recap for October 12-16, 2020, features Steffy getting a clean bill of health, Liam showing his true (selfish) colors, and more.
The Bold and the Beautiful Recap Highlights
A person’s stay in rehab is (apparently) proportionate to the amount of time they spent suffering from their specific addiction. Since Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) went from zero to opioid abuser in about two weeks that’s how long she was forced to languish in her treatment facility.
A little introspection here, a little group therapy there, and an off the cuff self-recorded PSA was all it took to magically “cure” Steffy of her affliction. And the added bonus? She’s also (somehow) back pain-free…because that’s how it works in the real world.
But we digress. And move on to the next point…which is actually a question. What does one do with a problem like Dr. John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan)? If you’re Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), you stomp around, make sour faces, scream at the top of your lungs, and cast aspersions on his skills as a physician.
Oh, and you also attempt to make your ex-wife (about three times over) doubt her judgment and question whether or not it would be right to date a man who *gasp* ordered her a second prescription! And you also have to insist that you’d have NOOOOO problem with her dating anyone else. It’s just this one guy that you really hate.
Luckily for Steffy (and the whole of the viewing audience), Hope (Annika Noelle) is ready and willing to call bull. She knows exactly what the issue is: Liam wants to have his cake and eat it too. He wants a life with her and Beth but he also wants to have Steffy play side chick and be at his beck and call (or is it mercy?) 24/7.
Heck, even Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) has picked up on Liam’s hypocrisy, and since he’s a psychopath who has a really hard time reading the room, that’s saying something about how ridiculous Liam is acting. Yet he continues to press on.
They’ve flirted. They’ve seen each other in nothing but their underwear. They’ve shared a few kisses and one or two candlelight suppers. But what Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Zoe (Kiara Barnes) won’t be doing is co-habituating.
Turns out, a decision to move in together is proportionate to the amount of time a couple has known one another. And since Carter and Zoe haven’t even spent one night together – you know, in the Biblical sense – it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to suddenly start playing happy families. It’s really the smartest – make that the only smart – thing that Zoe has done since she relocated from Vegas to L.A.
Zoe: “Everything I’ve gone through this year has taught me to not rush into anything. I mean, let’s just start off with my dad…And then I thought I had Xander to help me through, and then he disappeared…” Yea…what ever happened to Xander? Guess that Thomas and Zoe were the only ones allowed to board the forgiveness/let’s get our jobs back at Forrester train.
So, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) had an empty beachfront condo this whole time, huh? Why didn’t he stay THERE after he decamped from Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) and insisted he had nowhere else to go but Eric’s (John McCook)…which put him directly in Shauna’s (Denise Richards) path?
