SPEAKING OF SOAPS

RECAPS: OCT.R 23 - 27

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL — Feeling pressure from Sheila, Mateo stepped up his seduction game in order to accomplish his assigned task. Wyatt and Katie did not see eye to eye regarding what the presumed outcome would be from Bill and Liam’s confrontation. With Steffy on the sideline beaming with pride, Bill and Liam agreed to set aside their differences and promise to never fight this way again. Wyatt arrived at Spencer Publications to the sight and situation that he least expected. Liam praised Steffy for her dedication to him and credited her for reuniting the Spencer men in a way he couldn’t have imagined. Appreciation turned to bitterness between Steffy and Liam when the topic of Sally was brought up. At Il Giardino, Eric became upset and offended when Sheila attempted to turn him against Quinn by questioning her loyalty to their marriage. Seeing Quinn’s response to his inappropriate behavior, Mateo immediately regretted his money-driven actions. Sheila summoned Eric to inform him that Quinn’s having an affair behind his back with the estate manager, Mateo. Quinn told Wyatt about her encounter with Mateo after agreeing to keep her negative feeling about Katie in check. When Charlie confessed his concerns about Sheila causing more trouble for the Forresters, Pam confronted him about what he knows. Feeling betrayed by his wife, Eric invited Sheila over to his house, along with her portrait, so that she could replace Quinn in his life and on his wall. With all of the planning and scheming that she took part in, the situation at the Forrester mansion did not go the way Sheila anticipated. Katie would have had more of a concern about Quinn’s promise to accept her relationship with Wyatt if it wasn’t for Sheila wreaking havoc for the Forresters. Sheila explained to Eric how much she loves him and only wants what is best for him. Bill surprised Liam and Wyatt with legal papers making the three of them co-CEOs of Spencer Publications. As Steffy filled Ridge in on the Spencer family reconciliation, she intentionally left out the cause of the rift.

THIS WEEK: Without breaking her promise to Liam about keeping quiet about his gift, Sally nonverbally confirmed Shirley’s suspicions about how they obtained ownership of the Spectra building. Having placated Liam’s concern about his changes made while CEO remaining, Bill turned to Wyatt to be an ally in their future decisions regarding the company.
