This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (June 20 – 24, 2016): What Steffy tells Liam surprises him; Thomas makes a move that has Caroline playing referee between father and son; Vivienne tells Nicole not to trust Sasha.
Liam, Wyatt and Steffy
Liam may have been threatened with banishment from the Spencer Clan and Company if he didn’t respect his brother’s wedding vows but it hasn’t stopped him wanting Steffy. Liam even promised Steffy that he would try to do as Bill wanted, but clearly Liam fails. He tries again to get Steffy to be with him, and is shocked when Steffy tells him that she doesn’t want to leave Wyatt or her marriage.
What no one has reminded Liam of; since his memory of events before the accident is still flakey; are the difficulties he and Steffy were having before Liam’ disappeared to Australia with Ivy. There is , however, nothing wrong with Steffy’s memory. Quinn may have prevented Liam and Steffy from working on their issues, but she didn’t cause them.
Liam seems to be holding Bill in high esteem on the subject of love, loyalty and commitment. Liam agrees to try respect his brothers wedding vows with Steffy, but not for Wyatt, because of the example that Bill has set in his own marriage to Katie; who he knows has given Bill a hard time. But Bill has only responded with support and love, Liam states. Liam will try to follow his dad’s lead. Of course that will give Liam free reign to do whatever he likes once he works out that Bill is secretly romancing Brooke on the side. Bill may have explained away the earring from his napping room as Katie’s, but its a clue that is out there. And every earring has a pair…
When Bill tries to reiterate his message to Steffy where she works, Steffy who is clearly done with conversations about her love life, tells him to make and appointment, one she won’t let Pam give him because he’s made his position clear. Steffy does take the time to call Bill out on favoring one son over the other, however.
Steffy tells Liam that yes, she and Wyatt got swepts up in something (of Quinn’s making) but that doesn’t mean that her feelings for Wyatt aren’t real. In a teary interaction this week, Steffy does remind Liam that she thought Liam didn’t want her. Liam does what Bill implicitly told him not to do – embrace his brother’s wife.
While Steffy and Liam and having a heart to heart, Wyatt is confiding in Katie. The two (clueless?) spouses chat in Katie’s kitchen where Wyatt tells him step mother that he isn’t worried about anyone taking his wife away from him. Katie tells Wyatt that life couldn’t be better in the Spencer household right now. Poor clueless katie…
By weeks end Liam has made a surprising discovery about his dad, and Wyatt and Liam have butted heads at the office. Is it because Liam wants to use Spencer Publications power and resources for good? At least in part. But if Wyatt understood whey Liam wants to start a charitable foundation with a significant percentage of Spencer Publications’ profits he would likely support Liam.
Liam confides in Steffy that he needs something “good” to focus on to distract him from his obsession with them getting back together as a couple…
Spencer Publications (and the Spencer family) may not be big enough for the two brothers .
Bill, Katie and Brooke
Bill and Brooke’s affair continues. Just as well, Bill made quite an investment in that love nest, and we all know when Dollar Bill makes an investment he expects a return!
Bill stated that no one would be able to find them in Bill’s “personal gym” but seems like Liam may almost catch them in the act last week. Bill laid down the law to his family, and Liam in particular last week about respecting Steffy and Wyatt’s wedding vows. Bill even went so far as to tell Liam if he didn’t stop pursuing his brother’s wife he would be banished from the Spencer family.
Liam would undoubtedly have much to say to his father if he were to walk in on Bill and Brooke disrespecting Bill and Katie’s wedding vows…or is the earring enough for Liam to put two and two together?
Bill explains it away. But it remains as a clue to Bill’s lack of love, loyalty and commitment to his marriage…
At the very least, Liam does question his father about his executive bedroom. Bill tries to tell Liam that he was alone, but Liam counters. If you were alone, why did I find a woman’s earring on the bed, Liam asks Bill.
Bill explains it away. But it remains as a clue to Bill’s lack of love, loyalty and commitment to his marriage…Liam, however, has taken his father’s words about respecting marriage to heart…
If Liam doesn’t work it out, maybe Rick will. Bill steals into Brooke’s bedroom, shocking Brooke. Dressed in only a bathrobe, Bill literally sweeps Brooke off her feet and takes her to the bed. As the couple kisses, Rick turns up at his mother’s bedroom door. When Rick asks if his mom is in there, its enough to stop Bill and Brooke and make them gape at the close door.
Brooke and Bill have a conversation about what he is doing. Brooke gently tells him that he expects Liam to respect Steffy and Wyatt’s marriage yet here they are disrespecting his. Brooke asks him where the honor is in that.
By week’s end Katie seems to be railing at Brooke again. Brooke sounds exasperated by Katie’s yo-yo moods returning. Can she see Bill’s point? Either way, Katie tells Brooke that she isn’t like Brooke. She was driven to drink by the people who supposedly care about her betraying her.
Ridge, Caroline and Thomas
Thomas makes a move that Ridge doesn’t see coming. At all. It puts father and son at odds once more and Caroline is forced back into the role of referee between her husband and the father of her son. Caroline manages to make peace between Thomas and Ridge by coming up with a solution to their problem.
Ridge is also arousing suspicion this week. Only a few people are in the know about the deal Ridge did with Bill and Brooke. In return for Bill and Brooke keeping quiet about Douglas’ paternity, Ridge agreed to treat Rick with respect – professionally at least.
This will be quite a change in attitude for Ridge and it has both Rick and Steffy scratching their heads. Rick especially going to be suspicious about Ridge’s change of heart where Rick is concerned. Jai Rodriguez appears as the photographer “Sax”.
Steffy questions her father and brother about what is going on between them. She thinks she deserves to know. But they keep silent.
But Thomas is struggling with the secret that Steffy sensed the father and son were keeping. At the home that he shares with his father and his new family, an emotional Thomas tells someone that he has to live everyday with the knowledge (and betrayal) of his father stealing his son from him. Of course, Ridge is still smarting from Thomas betrayal in taking advantage of Caroline.
Caroline who is caught in the middle between her husband and the father of her baby, thinks maybe it is time to just be honest and tell the truth about who Douglas’ father really is. Caroline wishes more than anything that Douglas was Ridge’s son. But he’s not. And with Caroline agreeing with Thomas that the truth about Douglas should come out, the power dynamic in this triangle shifts. How will Ridge feel about not being in control?
Nicole, Zende and Sasha
When Nicole confides in her mother about asking Zende to turn down photographing the Intimates line while Sasha models, Vivienne tells her daughter she did the right thing. Very smart, not to let that happen Vivienne says. Vivienne has some advice for her daughter, Nicole, when it comes to her love life. Vivienne advises Nicole to remain wary of Sasha’s intentions where Zende is concerned.
But Nicole has to question her decision. Not trusting Sasha is one thing, but shouldn’t she trust her boyfriend, Zende?
Sasha may seem to be making all the right moves by telling Ridge he didn’t need a new photographer, but a new lingerie model putting he own aspirations aside so that Zende can pursue his, but Vivienne seems to see through that generous move. Did she do it to help her relationship with her sister? Or did she do it so that Zende would think highly of her.
Ridge, however, doesn’t bring in a new model, but hires an edgy, hip, photographer from New York to shoot an important new campaign (lingerie line anyone?)
Sasha tells Zende that he should be the photographer of the line ( a great opportunity that could make his photographic career) not Sax and not anyone else. Nicole tells Zende that she made a stupid terrible mistake and she wishes she could take it back every single day (faking a pregnancy?)
Sasha understands taht Zende is being punished because of Sasha’s bad choices (even if Zende doesn’t). She is grateful for all the good he has brought into her life and she wants to return the favor.

Summer Spoilers: The Bold and the Beautiful
The Bold and the Beautiful Summer preview hints at some surprising turn of events this summer:
More and more people learn about Douglas’ paternity, which has Ridge working harder than before to protect his family from a scandal.
Thomas is still torn between being the cause of the scandal that Ridge and Caroline fear and claiming Douglas as his son.
Bill’s ability to not use the paternity secret to unseat Ridge as CEO of Forrester Creations is in question. Let’s just hope another CEO power struggle results in an outcome more interesting than Rick talking the helm; again.
Sasha remains a thorn in the side of Zende and Nicole’s relationship. Ridge offers Sasha a new opportunity at Forrester Creations that means she won’t be heading back to Illinois. Nicole doesn’t trust her sister and becomes fiercely protective of her relationship with Zende demanding that Sasha stay away from him – even at work. Could Zende’s relationship with Nicole cost him professionally?
An unusual even for Liam, has Wyatt wondering if his marriage to Steffy is even valid. There are three possibilities here: Wyatt and Steffy’s marriage wasn’t valid; Wyatt and Hope’s divorce wasn’t valid meaning that Wyatt wasn’t free to marry Steffy invalidating their marriage; or Steffy’s divorce from Liam wasn’t valid meaning that she is still legally married to Liam.
Since Chaz Bono, who portrayed the minister that married Wyatt and Steffy, has been back on the set, it seems that it’s Wyatt and Steffy’s union that may be in question.
Katie continues to struggle to stay away from alcohol; Bill and Brooke struggle to stay away from each other.
