In the Wednesday, March 22, 2023, full episode recap of CBS’ Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke fills her father in on her life, Bill tells Ridge the next stage of his plan, and Steffy looks for reassurance from Hope.

We also have Tuesday’s B&B recap where after watching how electric Hope and Thomas were working together, Steffy questioned Hope’s feelings for Thomas.

Sheila drinks coffee at Bill’s while he watches her from the surveillance bunker and curses “Nine Toes” being in his home.

Ridge interrupts his grimacing and Bill announces the next step in his plan. He’s going to ask Sheila to marry him.

“Samurai Sam” Forrester thinks he’s lost his marbles. Bill explains he’s not “marrying the bride of Frankenstein,” but he needs to show his total commitment to get her to confess.

The only way to get “the thing” to open up, is to tell her what she wants to believe: that she’s lovable.

Ridge agrees. He wants to get this done so he can get back to his life.

Bill is sure that slipping a ring on her finger is a sure way to a confession. When Ridge tries to crack a joke, Bill suggests he stick to sewing.

Sitting on the couch, Sheila thinks of Bill telling her how much he loves her. Bill arrives and she leaps up to greet him.

He tells her he still has a couple of tricks up his sleeve.

Telling her how great it is to come home to her smiling face, he takes her hand and reminds her of how intensely they connected. He’s been proving himself to her ever since.

She knows he put everything on the line for her. It chokes her up to think about it.

Sheila admits that she doesn’t know what he’s thinking some times. He admits he can be a bit withdrawn but he’s been open with her and wants her to be the same with him.

Bill knows she’s holding dark things in and he doesn’t want any barriers between them. He’s one hundred percent committed.

To prove it, he wants to show her she can believe in their life together. Dollar Bill Spencer was giving up on love until he saw her on the beach that night.

He would put everything on the line for her again. He can see their future and he knows exactly where she belongs. In the house, by his side forever.

Stroking her face, he says he wants to change her life permanently. She gasps as he takes out a ring.

She looks at the ring and then at Bill.
