Hope Returns to Los Angeles

Hope is even more delighted to learn that Hope plans to stay in Los Angeles. She tells her mom, she’s ready for a new challenge. She wants to apply what she has learned in Europe in the Los Angeles office of Forrester Creations. And whatever Hope’s plan is must rub Rick the wrong way, since it isn’t long before the siblings are bickering, making Brooke wonder if having both her children under one roof is such a good idea.
Hope isn’t home for long however, when news of trouble in Liam’s marriage makes it’s way to Hope.
The Fallout from Steffy and Bill’s Affair Spreads
After a devastating week where Liam learned that not only his wife cheated on him, but with his father, the drama isn’t over as Bill desperately tries to make sure Steffy doesn’t lose her family because of their one night together.
Liam walked away from Steffy leaving her sobbing on the ground outside their home telling her that he hated her, and his father. He then imparted to the same message to his father, after Bill tried to gift him the Malibu Cliff House. He was walking out on both Bill and Steffy, but not his child, Liam told Bill. And his most important task as a parent would be to keep Bill away from his grandchild.
Bill goes to see Steffy. He tells Steffy that Liam is the baby’s father and he has to act like one. But Steffy’s has to face the possibility that she has lost Liam for good. Bill also tries to convince Liam not to walk out on his wife. If he does it will be the biggest mistake of his life, Bill tells his son.
But Liam isn’t listening to any more of Bill’s family comes first wisdom. Clearly, it is something he preaches and expects when it is to his advantage, but it sure isn’t something Bill practices. Liam tells his father that if he actually cared about Liam’s marriage that he wouldn’t have slept with his wife.
Wyatt listens as the two men argue. Later, Wyatt has a word of two for his father about his behavior. Bill barely has time to recover from the lashing Wyatt gives him when Katie arrives to do the same.
By the end of the week, Steffy has hopes that Bill’s words have impacted Liam when he comes to see her at the Cliff House. She is hopeful for a reconciliation and asks him to forgive her. But Liam recoils when she tries to touch him. He’s there because they need to make some decisions, Liam coldly tells his wife. Presumably, Liam means ending their marriage and coming to a custody arrangement.
Sally Provides Liam With Friendship
When Liam goes to Sally and tells her that he can no longer work with her on the Spectra Fashions relocations, Sally picks up on his change in demeanor. He’s not the same calm, Liam, he seems angry, and sad. Sally asks him what is going on, but Liam is reluctant to disclose the sordid details surrounding the end of his marriage.
Sally can see that Liam is in no state of mind to be alone, as he is requesting. Our of friendship, and gratitude for all Liam has done for her, standing by her, when his father demolished the Spectra Builing, Sally is going to do the same for Liam.
Later in the week, Sally and Hope meet for the first time. They quickly learn they have one thing in common. Liam. Will this common ground make for a friendship? Or rivalry?
