The Bold and the Beautiful recap for Monday, September 7, features Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who was struggling after Dr. Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) refused her request for more prescription painkillers. He let her know that she could count on him. She insisted she was fine and just needed her medication, per Soap Central.
Finn sensed there had been some tension between Steffy and Hope Logan Spencer (Annika Noelle). He didn't want to dig into her past with Hope and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), but said he was just trying to help.
The physician felt Steffy should take time away from Kelly to heal. He sensed she also had some emotional healing to do. He spoke about the picture on the wall and said he recognized love when he saw it. When her relationship with Liam ended, it must have left a void in her life. Steffy asked if he was giving her a pep talk. The doctor was just trying to encourage her to use her support system. He reminded her she had a father who she could speak to. She could also lean on him if she wanted to.
Steffy divulged she hated being away from Kelly Spencer (Colette and Avalon Gray). She felt she was failing her daughter by not being able to be with her, but she experienced pain even when she picked the toddler up. She asked him to reconsider and to please give her one more refill so she could continue to give the best to Kelly.At Spencer Publications, Liam insisted Steffy was spending too much time alone. Bill suggested she needed to heal from her injuries. He advised Liam not to indulge in his guilty feelings about his ex because she would eventually find someone new.
Hope arrived at the office. As seen in the above image, Liam was stunned when she told him she had not dropped Kelly off. She explained that the little girl had asked to finish her art project at the cabin. However, Steffy's reaction had been pretty intense. Liam understood why she reacted that way — Kelly had been at the cabin a lot over the last couple of weeks. He didn't want her to think they were taking advantage of her situation.
Liam wanted them to be sensitive to Steffy's needs. Hope divulged Steffy was not alone. The doctor had paid her a visit at the cliff house. Bill felt there was an ulterior reason Finn had stopped by.
"Did he bring her apple pie and hand-churned butter?" a sarcastic Bill wanted to know.
Liam insisted the physician's interest in Steffy was purely related to her health. He had taken very good care of his ex-wife while she was in the hospital.
After Bill left, Hope told Liam something was wrong with Steffy. She seemed a bit off. Liam sensed the same thing.
