In the Wednesday, March 1, 2023, full episode recap of CBS’ Bold and the Beautiful, Steffy worries about Hope, Liam tries to reassure Hope about Douglas, and Eric worries about the future of Hope for the Future.
We also have Tuesday’s B&B recap where an emotional Steffy agreed to give Thomas another chance, and Sheila wept after telling Deacon she can’t attend his opening.
At the cliff house, Steffy and Finn are impressed with themselves and with how helpful Douglas has been.
He needs to get to work. She misses him. They kiss and she gets a text that makes her sigh.
Steffy explains it’s Hope wondering about Douglas. She worries about her. Finn reminds her this situation is temporary.
She’s sure Hope thought Douglas would be home by now. Plus, her line has been struggling since they let Thomas go.
The timing couldn’t be worse, but she might have to pull the line.
At the cabin, Hope stares at her phone. Liam comes home and tells her how happy Beth was to go to school and see her friends.
She worries the little girl will be missing Douglas. She’s been trying to put on a brave face but she’s hurting. Hope misses Douglas a lot.
Liam gives her a hug. She beats herself up about them letting Douglas make this choice. He assures her there’s no way they could have anticipated this.
Everything will be okay. “Will it?” she asks.
The only thing that will make her feel better is Douglas coming home. Liam says it will happen at some point.
She’s terrified that Douglas might decide he’s happier with his aunt. “Not a chance in hell,” Liam says.
Unexpected things may happen all the time, but Douglas’ love will bring him home.
“He belongs here with us,” she sobs.
As she packs her bag, he asks if anything else is going wrong. She seems more “internal” than usual.
She says it’s mainly Douglas… and Sheila… but her line isn’t doing too well either.
He tells her she doesn’t have to go through it alone. She can talk to him about anything.
They kiss. She claims she just needs her life to go back to the way it was.
