If you have no reason to stay, you’ll leave Wyatt? Right? Steffy is confused. If the marriage is not valid, you are free, Liam tells Steffy. Steffy is stunned. What if I’m actually not married? Karma Liam says. Liam can’t wait to see the look on Quinn’s face if everything she’s done is for nothing. He needs to hear Steffy say that if the marriage isn’t legal she’d come back to him.
Steffy tells Liam that they don’t even know what he is saying is true. If it is there is a lot ofr her to think about. Steffy says that she made vows. The piece of paper doesn’t confirm their marriage, their vows and tattoo’s do. The tattoo is a permanent reminds she has a man to go home to.
Liam tells Steffy that tattoo’s can be removed or covered up. Liam gives her a shell to carry with her. Every time she thinks a tattoo reminds her she’s married she should take out the shell. The shell is a reminder of how far he will always go to get back to her. Steffy and Liam hug. Bill walks in. He was just with Wyatt ant the city clerk’s office. Steffy and Wyatt’s marriage is valid.
He’s a better reverend than he is a burglar. Bill tells Steffy its time to go home to her husband. Steffy leaves but let’s Liam see that she has taken the shell.

Liam rants about all the things he and Steffy have gone through and that they belong together.
Bill yells at Liam that even after all of that he and Steffy never worked out. Liam can’t change the past but he can change his behavior going forward. Suck it up he tells his son. He never wants to walk in and find him in an embrace with his brother’s wife again. No more hang dog expressions and Bill will not tolerate Liam sulking like a teenager.
Bill says he can’t ground Liam like a teenager but he can disenfranchise him from the family and throw him out of the company. Respect your brothers marriage or go your own way, Bill threatens his son.
Liam is stunned . You would really do that? Liam calls him a cold sob like his father. Bill says that he has been there for Liam, his father was never there for him, because he was a bastard son or his sister, because of her sexual orientation. Liam has a choice, Bill says. But Liam yells that he can’t respect Steffy’s marriage to Wyatt. She will never love Wyatt as much as she loves him. Bill knows it and Liam knows it too.
