Still tormented by Beth’s death and her own inability to give Liam a family, Hope determined that her husband ought to be with Steffy, instead. Brooke was alarmed by her daughter’s new perspective, as were Liam and Steffy. Liam told the blonde that he refused to give up on their marriage, and Steffy discouraged Hope from saying drastic things she didn’t really mean. Others, however, (including Bill, Ridge and Wyatt) all thought varying degrees of, “Perhaps she has a point!” To Liam and Steffy’s complete shock and alarm, Hope made a grand gesture toward them to show just how serious she was about wanting to make this marital hand-off happen. Heartbroken, she tried to explain to her gobsmacked spouse why she was ready to give him up. Liam insisted to Hope that staying together and working through their grief was the only correct course of action.
Spectra Fashions Lives Again!
Wanting to foster better relationships with his sons, Bill urged Wyatt to rejoin him at Spencer Publications. Wyatt considered the job offer, but came up with a counter-proposal for his father, namely, using Spencer funds to revive Spectra Fashions, Bill was caught off guard by the idea, but eventually agreed, and Sally was beyond thrilled that her boyfriend had gone to bat for her and received his father’s backing. Wyatt and Sally let Quinn and Eric know that they were leaving Forrester in order to go work for Bill, instead. Dollar Bill admitted he was only making this foray into the fashion world as a way to resume working with his son, and he ended up making a last-minute change to the deal he’d hatched with Wyatt and Sally.
Bill Wanted Katie Back!
Bill was certainly pleased to learn that the reason Thorne had ended his marriage to Katie was because he felt she’d never gotten over her ex, but the tycoon adopted an appropriately sympathetic demeanor when he paid her a visit to offer her his support. Katie was touched by Bill’s gentle compassion toward her in the wake of her failed marriage. Justin and Donna spent some time together helping play matchmaker for Bill and Katie. Donna ended up having a not-so-subtle heart-to-heart with her newly single baby sister about her true feelings for Bill. Will later put his parents in the hot seat by asking them a pointed question about their past.
Flo Was Shaken

Flo admitted she was still shaken up over her involvement in the baby ruse, and that she’d decided to remain in L.A. for the time being. Katie brought a distraught Hope to Bikini Bar for a pick-me-up. She and her niece had a very candid conversation about recent events just a few feet away from where Flo was tending bar. Overhearing the heartfelt conversation left the L.A. transplant more rattled than ever!
