A lot can happen in a day in Los Angeles, so it’s easy to get lost. If you’ve missed anything that happened over the last week or so on the soap, our THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL recaps can help you get back up to speed in no time!
Hope arranged for Liam to share a vegetarian dinner with her, Brooke and Ridge. Naturally, the evening was one more opportunity for the blonde to lobby on behalf of a possible future with Liam, but as they dined, Bill was plotting. He assured a skeptical Wyatt that his relationship with Steffy was far from being over. In fact, he led Wyatt to believe that he and Steffy were still involved. Following his dinner at Brooke’s house, Liam thanked Hope for her hospitality and admitted to wishing he could promise her that it would actually amount to something in the end. However, he was still far too conflicted about his future with Steffy to make any certain commitment to Hope. As if Liam weren’t feeling enough pressure about the decision he would soon make, Ridge took him aside to remind him of his marital obligations and the wedding vows he made to Steffy. In the end, Liam finally made his decision, giving Steffy the joyful romantic surprise of her life when she discovered he’d chosen her!
Bill Framed Steffy
As Steffy reveled in the over-the-top expression of love she’d just received, she had no idea she was also the victim of a horrible sabotage scheme. Bill recruited Justin to help set up the remnants of a romantic date at the Spencer offices, which Wyatt stumbled upon and mistakenly believed was proof that Steffy was still involved with Bill. Horrified by this discovery, Wyatt felt grudgingly compelled to tell Liam about his wife’s continued infidelity. Liam confronted Steffy in a blind rage, leaving his pregnant missus completely confused by his sudden about-face. Justin felt guilty about his hand in the deception and warned Bill that there could be dire consequences for his recent gambit. Wyatt remained perplexed about Steffy’s continuing betrayal of his brother. Liam eventually came to understand that Bill had been using Taylor to win back Steffy.

Ridge Suspected Foul Play
Ridge’s good mood over Steffy and Liam’s reunion soon soured when she arrived in tears explaining that things with Liam suddenly went south. She was completely bewildered, even more so when Wyatt accused her of still being involved with his father. Ridge attempted to help Steffy sort out what went wrong with Liam, and quickly became convinced that Bill was behind the whole mess. Ridge later confronted Liam about his decision to divorce Steffy and take up with Hope instead. The designer saved his most scathing ire for Bill. In a face-to-face encounter, Ridge told his nemesis that he was causing his own son massive heartache and misery. Bill remained both confident and unfazed by this verbal attack from Steffy’s dad
Liam Proposed to Hope
Hope was completely flabbergasted when Liam made her an unexpected proposal of marriage. The couple shared a tender moment and began to daydream bout their future together. Hope showed Liam a special memento that she had saved from their previous engagement. With the ink barely dry on Liam’s annulment papers, a glib Hope revealed to her romantic rival that she and Liam were engaged. The two women got into a spite-filled argument, one Brooke interrupted to rush to her daughter’s defense. Still unaware that Liam believed she was having an affair with Bill, Steffy later pleaded with her ex not to marry Hope but to instead wait until after their daughter’s birth.
