SPEAKING OF SOAPS

RECAPS DEC. 25 - 29

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL — B&B is preempted on Friday, December 29, and is airing a classic Christmas episode on Christmas Day which originally aired in 2016. In that episode Steffy is feeling guilty about not spending Christmas with her family, but, basks in spending the holiday reunited with Liam. Ridge has a moment of nostalgia of Christmases past when Rick implements a new tradition for his family. Bill and Katie spend a cordial holiday together in her new home for the sake of Will. Knowing that his family members have other plans, Eric calls them over for at least one Christmas carol. It’s a much different picture this Christmas as Steffy is conflicted about telling Liam that a one night stand with his father could mean that Bill is the father of her unborn child. Liam is blissfully unaware of her conflict and has daydreams about being a father. On December 28 Liam has a fantasy of playing with Steffy’s unborn child. If the scene looks natural there’s a good reason. Ford Clifton the real-life son of Scott Clifton (who plays Liam) will be playing the role of the Steffy’s son. Liam imagines how idea life will be once he and Steffy become parents. Meanwhile, Steffy is terrified that Bill won’t play along and concede that Liam is the baby’s father and not fight for a paternity test.
