SPEAKING OF SOAPS

RECAPS: OCTOBER 30 – NOVEMBER 3

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL —Liam felt betrayed by Bill and Wyatt when he learned that they made a major business decision without considering his opinion. Brooke began to have second thoughts about divorcing Bill when she learned from Steffy that he and Liam have reconciled. Bill urged to get Liam on board with him and Wyatt and provided him with the essential details behind their dominant decision. Shirley called Sally out on her feelings for Liam and encouraged her to pursue him in spite of the fact that he’s married to Steffy. Bill gave Liam an ultimatum to either remain loyal to the family and Spencer Publications or to side with Sally and Spectra Fashions. In the spirit of Halloween, Saul and Darlita surprised Sally with the scariest costume she could possibly wear. Steffy’s visit to Spectra Fashions left her with two revelations regarding Sally and Liam’s business relationship. Not wanting to reignite the conflict with Bill, Liam offered his father several compromises of how all parties involved might benefit. Bill offered his own compromise in return. Steffy learned from Bill that all of her efforts to reunite him with Liam were in vain because once again they’re at war. Liam was forced to tell Sally in person that their plan to rebuild and relaunch Spectra Fashions would not happen. When learning from Steffy that Liam told Sally about him being responsible for the fire, Bill became concerned about what lengths his son would take to help save Spectra. Liam made a promise to Sally and her employees that he would save the company and offered a solution for them all to fight Bill. Bill met with the head of demolition crew and made a plan to turn the Spectra building into rubble by day’s end. Steffy strongly voiced her objection of Liam going against Bill’s plan by joining Sally and her crew in their peaceful protest. Wyatt learned from Steffy about Liam’s idea and became worried that things between his father and brother would not end well. Liam made one last passionate plea to Bill to change his mind about tearing down the historic building. As the demolition crew arrived on the job, the Spectra group refused to vacate the premises. Bill was frustrated that Liam’s leading the protest with the Spectra group and refusing to leave the building that he’s ready to demolish. Steffy and Wyatt began to worry about Liam being willing to risk his life for Sally, a woman he barely knows.

THIS WEEK: Bill placed a call to Liam inside the building in an effort to reason with his son and get him and the others off of the premises. Unsuccessful in his attempted negotiations, Bill decided to put some fear into his opponents.

As Charlie realized how determined Cane is to reunite their family, he began to soften, but the warm moment was interrupted by angry Mattie.
