This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (January 26 – 30, 2015): Steffy comes to town. Will she help Liam with his plan? Steffy’s presence brings out Ivy’s insecurities. Ridge is pleased to see his daughter.
Liam, Ivy….and Steffy!
After making love for the first time Ivy tells Liam this isn’t something she does easily or takes lightly. Later, while discussing Rick and his behavior with Liam at his office, Ivy notes that its as if he’s actively seeking out to sabotage – everything! He’s the boss, so we all suffer Ivy tells Liam. But Liam has a plan!
Liam tells Bill that he wants to take over Forrester Creations. Forrester is going down with or without them. Bill looks impressed by his son’s plan. With Caroline designing and him running the company he could put Rick Forrester out to pasture Liam tells Bill(?)
Steffy and Liam come face to face for the first time in over a year. The last time they saw each other was Liam’s failed wedding to Hope when Hope saw Liam with Steffy.Did you miss me Steffy asks. Liam admits that it is so good to see her.
Liam asks for Steffy’s help in sorting out Rick at Forrester Creations. Bill and Liam aren’t happy about Rick’s power trip and bad treatment of the Forrester Creations staff – particularly, Ivy and Caroline. Will Liam explain that Ivy is his girlfriend? Liam and Bill have a plan and Steffy isn’t really fond of Rick either, so she’s likely to help out…Steffy also own 25% of Forrester Creations stock…Liam lays out his plan to Steffy, then asks what she thinks. Control of Forrester that can’t be taken away. You and I can make that happen Liam tells his ex-wife.
Steffy wants something in return for her assistance, however.
Ivy unaware of the reason for Liam and Steffy being together finds it difficult to hide her insecurities when she walks in on Steffy and Liam together.
Ridge, Caroline and Rick; Rick, Caroline and Maya
Rick shoots into the office where Ridge and Caroline were making out. Did he hit anyone? Was it a fantasy? Warning shots to get Ridge off his wife…
Ridge is delighted when his daughter, Steffy comes to town. Ridge can’t hide his surprise when Steffy tells him why she is there.
Rick’s claims that what Caroline and Ridge can do whatever they like because it has no effect on him is tested when he witnesses Ridge and Caroline kissing. Rick explodes in a fit of jealousy. Is Rick losing the plot?
Rick tells Brooke that he had to get Ridge off of his wife, as Maya looks on shocked. Is she shocked that Rick referred to Caroline as his wife, or that he took a gun and shot at Ridge and Caroline?
Despite Ridge telling Caroline he wouldn’t involve Lt Baker and the police in Rick taking pot shots at them with Stephanie’s gun, Ridge isn’t letting the incident go. Your son is out of control Ridge tells Brooke over the phone.
Caroline says she did everything she could to save her marriage. Caroline finally accepts that Rick’s bad treatment of her has gone to far and its time to turn her back on her marriage to Rick. Ridge and Caroline plot to have Rick removed as CEO of Forreser Creations. They threaten legal action if Rick doesn’t comply with their request that he step down as CEO. Do Caroline and Ridge use Rick trying to shoot them as leverage to get him to step down as CEO?
Ridge tells Rick that either he steps down as CEO of Forrester Creations or he and Caroline will go to the police and file charges against him.
Pam believes that the one and only solution to the mess Forrester Creations is in is to get Eric back to Los Angeles. Caroline asks herself and others if she wants a husband who shows his displeasure with her by shooting at her…
Maya tells brooke (after she’d gotten dressed!) that she loves her son. She also tells Brooke that Caroline cheated on Rick – with Ridge…Maya asks Brooke to support her and Rick. Brooke isn’t sure about Maya’s motives however, so her support isn’t a gimme! Brooke struggles with sides even though she and Ridge have been at odds since his return from Paris
Brooke is aghast that Caroline cheated on Rick but is equally suspicious of Maya. What are you up to Brooke wants to know from Maya. Brooke tell Maya that she is back and will be watching…looks like Maya isn’t getting the support from Rick’s momma that she wanted…
Brooke notes that if Caroline had kissed anyone else that moment would have come and gone and it would all be over by now.
Bill and Katie
Katie tells Liam that she doesn’t know what is going to happen (with Bill?) but she is going to try to stay open to whatever comes her way. Liam notes that things are looking up around here (at Spencer Publications).
Bill and Brooke come face to face for the first time since her return from Italy. Brooke understands Bill’s frustration with her. She admits she could have handled this in a better way.
Deacon and Quinn
Quinn and Deacon discuss Bill and Katie being back together again. Where does that leave Brooke Quinn wonders. Is Quinn worried Deacon will go after Brooke again? Repair his family like Quinn encouraged him to do when he came back to Los Angeles?
Wyatt returns from Italy to find himself cross examined by his mother on the state of his marriage. Uh. Just let Wyatt get back on the plane to Italy…

The Bold and the Beautiful Coming and Goings Summary:
While the Bold and the Beautiful make cast changes due to budgetary pressure from an actor pay raise?
Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) is back this week from her assignment at the Milan office and is set to learn what transpired in her absence.
Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) made her debut late last week. This week we see what mischief she gets up to and how Maya feels about her past catching up with her. Particularly since Maya confessed to Rick that he family never thought she would amount to anything.
Wyatt returns from Italy – Hope-less…
The Bold and the Beautiful Looking Forward – February Sweeps:
Rick feeling pressured from all sides takes matters or rather that gun into his own hands…Who’s is the gun anyway?
The future of Forrester takes an unexpected turn…
Katie teams up with her ex Bill against Forrester. Bill realizes he will never have Brooke and wants Katie back. Reunited, Bill and Katie become the new power couple of The Bold and the Beautiful.
January 2015 sees Steffy return from Paris. What trouble can she stir up while in town? How will Liam react to seeing his ex wife again? And how will Ivy take meeting Liam’s former wife?
Darin Brooks (Wyatt) will be out of town for much of January – Wyatt will probably head to Milan trying to save his marriage to Hope – while the actor films a movie. Look for him to return to the storytelling in February. Will he have a recast, Hope with him? (Speculation only!)
Bill Bell’s statement that Hope will remain a central character and on the canvas is being interpreted as The Bold and the Beautiful recasting Hope after Kim Matula’s departure. How long will the character of Hope be rested? Will Hope return from Italy with Brooke?
Katherine Kelly Lang is due to return to our screens towards the end of January. Look for Brooke back on our screens January 22, 2014…
Ridge isn’t finished vying for the CEO job. The battle for control at Forrester Creations isn’t over.
Rick may find that his feelings mess up his grand plan…
Could Rick impregnate both Caroline AND Maya at the same time? Not likely since he hasn’t slept with Caroline!….Yet.
Maya has some family arrive in town. The Bold and the Beautiful has reportedly cast Reign Edwards in the role of Nicole Avant – Maya’s hitherto unheard of younger sister. Apparently scheming and manipulating runs through the family genes. Look for Nicole to debut in January.
Another casting update for January screen time – Despite saying recently that she would not be returning to The Bold and the Beautiful Jacqueline MacInnes Woods (Steffy) is reportedly filming a handful of episodes also set to air in January…
