The Bold and the Beautiful recap for January 18-22, 2021, features further drama for the soaps favorite foursome, plus a startling about-face, and a tardy text message finally reaching its intended recipient.
The Bold and the Beautiful Recap Highlight
In the aftermath of his confrontation with Finn (Tanner Novlan), Liam (Scott Clifton) begged Hope (Annika Noelle) on bended knee for her forgiveness. But Hope wasn’t prepared to just absolve Liam of his sin. And she wasn’t about to let him back into her life just so he could then turn around and commit another “mistake” with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).
Meanwhile, Finn and Steffy had a relationship (re)defining moment. Both agreed that they were holding out hope (no pun intended) that Finn would be named the baby’s father, and Steffy insisted that Finn was the man for her.
Switch It Up
Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), having overheard Liam’s pathetic attempt at reconciliation, extended his sympathies to Hope…then he surprised her by recommending that she forgive her husband!
Sure, Liam screwed up. Yet again. And yes, Steffy may be carrying his child. But Thomas was sure that Liam did truly value the life he built with Hope, Beth, and Douglas. And Thomas was also certain that Hope’s heart lay with Liam, so why break up the marriage?
Liam turned to Wyatt (Darin Brooks) for some comfort and wound up getting one heck of a dressing down. Seems Wyatt wasn’t pleased to learn that his sibling cheated on one of his favorite exes. But at least he did offer to house Liam in the event that Hope threw him out. What are brothers for?
Truth Be Told
Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) attempt to get the goods on Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) seemed like a non-starter when she failed to get Wyatt to reveal any dirt. Enter Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden), who had no such qualms about enlightening the visitor from Genoa City.
Zoe (Kiara Barnes) did her utmost to flirt her way into Zende’s (Delon de Metz) affections, but he remained resolute in his desire to stay away from his good friend’s fiancée.
Color Zoe shocked when she finally received the text Zende sent her the night she accepted Carter’s (Lawrence Saint-Victor) proposal. Would Zende’s request that she slow things down been headed? The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
