This week on The Bold and the Beautiful January 29 -February 2, 2017: Sally tells Liam she wants him to move on with her; Bill wants Steffy to move on with him; Hope’s truth makes Steffy defensive; Thorne helps plan Ridge and Brooke’s wedding.
Bill Wants Steffy to Move On – With Him
Bill has had enough of everyone berating him for sleeping with Steffy. He’s tired of everyone making it something disgusting when it wasn’t. So far, Bill has endured “lectures” from Katie, Wyatt, Ridge and Brooke. Oh, and of course, Liam.
By the end of last week, Bill was done with being bludgeoned with guilt from everyone who learned the truth about why Liam walked out on his wife. He reminded Steffy that long before he knew Liam existed there was “them”. Bill also reminded Steffy that he didn’t walk away from her by choice. He had to. For the sake of Katie’s health.
Bill has been nothing but supporting of repairing Liam and Steffy’s marriage, but Liam told Steffy that he would never forgive Steffy. Isn’t’ it time to move on Bill wonders. With him. Bill offers Steffy a life with him. He will be a wonderful grandfather to her baby, but he can be it’s stepfather also.
But Steffy isn’t ready to hear Bill’s offers of love and happy family life with him. All Steffy wants is to be married to Liam and raise their child as a family. She tells Bill that she isn’t giving up on the man she loves.
And Ridge isn’t giving up on Liam and Steffy working through Steffy’s betrayal either. Ridge tells Liam that Bill took advantage of Steffy who was in emotional distress (Ridge stops short of blaming Liam for that distress). Ridg reasons that Bill is getting exactly what he wants – revenge on Liam and Ridge – in one elegant move. But that can only happen if Liam lets Bill’s disgusting behavior trump his and Steffy’s love. Don’t let your father destroy your life, Ridge begs of Liam.
Sally Wants Liam to Move on – With Her
Sally hasn’t exactly been shy about letting her feelings be known. Despite his marriage to Steffy, Sally let Liam know that his kindness and generosity had touched her deeper than Liam had expected. While buried beneath the rubble of the Spectra building, and thinking they could possible die, Sally confessed to Liam that she loved him.
Of course, Sally knew nothing could come of her feelings because Liam was happily married to Steffy, but when she ran into him at Spencer Publications when he was clearing out his office, Liam’s demeanor, and the fact that he was staying in a hotel told her there was trouble in paradise.
Sally offered Liam friendship, but so far Liam hasn’t taken her up on the offer. When Sally ran into Hope at Forrester Creations, it didn’t take Hope long to clue into Sally’s feelings either. And last week Sallly admitted to Darlita that when Liam was ready to move on, Sally hoped it would be with her.
This week, Sally is a little more brazen. She tells Liam that he knows how she feels about him, offering him her support and comfort. She kisses him.
Hope Confronts Steffy
But Sally isn’t Liam’s only option, if and when he’s ready to move on. Last week, Liam and Hope caught up after Hope returned to Los Angeles after years living in Italy. Liam told his brother that Hope provided a bit of sunshine in his cloudy and stormy life. He also noted that Hope would never have done what Steffy did, to which Wyatt reminded his brother that he already had a wife. One who is pregnant with his child.
Hope has been almost too keen to help Steffy and Liam resolve their marital issues. And as Ridge noted, given that Hope and Steffy have a long history as rivals – including for Liam’s heart – he though Hope needed to keep out of Liam and Steffy’s problems.
Hope didn’t quite see it that way and whined to Brooke that since returning she felt like and outsider in her own family. Perhaps to appease her daughter, Brooke hinted at what Steffy had done to make Liam walk out on her.
Hope was horrified that Steffy would sleep with Bill and started to make a comment but bit it back. Hope’s reaction suggests that Hope’s interest in Liam and Steffy’s marriage may not be as altruistic as she has been making out.
This week, Hope lets Steffy know she understands why Liam walked out on her. This puts Steffy on the defensive and the Hope vs Steffy rivalry squarely back in play.
Later in the week, Hope and Wyatt come face to face at Forrester Creations. She feld Los Angeles four years ago after she fell down some stairs and miscarried their baby. Hope later divorced Wyatt by mail. Needless to say, the meeting is more than a little awkward.
Ridge and Brooke Wedding Planning
Ridge and Brooke manage to put Liam and Steffy’s marital woe’s aside long enough to confirm that they are proceeding with wedding plans. A fact that seems to justify a champagne toast in the office.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers hint that Ridge and Thorne share a brotherly moment, their sibling rivalry set aside for a little while at least. Given that Brooke and Ridge are rumored to choose the best man and matron of honor for their wedding this week, we would suppose that Ridge asks Thorne to stand up for him. But the job also comes with some other duties and Thorne finds himself wedding planning with Pam, Ivy, Katie and Maya.
Quinn also has an offer for Ridge and Brooke. Presumably, to celebrate them all coming full circle since Australia, where Brooke called off her wedding to Ridge after she saw Quinn and Ridge kissing on the beach at Liam and Steffy’s wedding reception.
Brooke looks to her oldest son, Rick, to give her his blessing to marry Ridge. Rick will, but he has some conditions….
Next Week’s B&B Spoilers…
In support of her relationship with Ridge, Brooke asks Thorne to find another place to stay.
