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!
After Bill doctored a photo to make it look like Hope and Liam were involved behind her back, Steffy wasn’t certain whether or not to believe him. She soon enough got proof of her own when she walked in on the couple getting hot and heavy in Hope’s office! Furious, Steffy bee-lined her way back to Bill where she negotiated a deal with him that she hoped would give her more power in her personal life. Liam and Hope both felt horrible about having hurt Steffy, and he set out to the Malibu cliff house to try to set things right with Kelly’s mom. When he got there, he found only the nanny home watching the little girl. Having been filled in by her daughter on what had gone down, Brooke later showed up and encouraged Liam not to feel guilty about what Steffy witnessed. Brooke insisted that his love for Hope was nothing to be ashamed of.
Steffy Turns To Bill!
Despite Justin’s warning that the bargain (signed and notarized!) which Steffy and Bill had struck was not a good idea, they decided to proceed… by getting engaged! Bill offered to drive Steffy back to the cliff house in order to break the news. Liam’s face turned ashen when Steffy came home wearing a Spencer sword necklace. She coldly explained that she had turned to Bill because of the hurt Liam caused her. Remorseful, Liam asked Steffy for something he knew she might be unable or unwilling to give. Wyatt was stunned when he heard about this new development between his father and Steffy. Bill was anxious to marry Steffy right away despite Wyatt’s assertions that doing so would forever cost him his relationship with Liam. At Bill’s house, Steffy saw the new nursery for Kelly that Bill had arranged. He also presented her with a very special gift and told her he wanted to get hitched, pronto. Steffy was unprepared for the lightning speed at which Bill hoped to seal the deal, but he told her that the clock was ticking, and she needed to decide immediately!
Ridge Is Dismayed!
Ridge saw red when Hope grudgingly explained to him that Steffy had caught her kissing Liam in the office. Ridge went off on his stepdaughter, but Brooke intervened and angrily insisted that he apologize to Hope for his harsh tone. When Ridge later found out that Steffy had turned to Bill, he was absolutely horrified that Liam’s shabby treatment of his daughter had pushed her straight into the hands of his worst enemy. Ridge urged Liam to stop Steffy from marrying his father while he still had the chance, saying that she was only settling for Bill because she was so hurt. Ridge and Brooke later argued about how each of them was handling the situation involving their daughters. Steffy ended up making a stunning declaration about her future, which also would have a major impact on the future of Forrester Creations.
Zoe Hits Pay-dirt
Emma was furious when Zoe snuck into the Hope For The Future fashion show and upstaged her dance routine by modeling the showstopper. Thorne, on the other hand, saw potential in the beautiful young interloper, despite her history of behaving in a threatening fashion. Knowing what a troublemaker she was, Xander beseeched his ex to pack her things and leave Los Angeles, but Thorne hoped she might stick around in an official capacity as a model at Forrester Creations. Emma seethed as Zoe accepted Thorne’s offer. When Zoe rushed giddily into Xander’s arms to celebrate, it was clear she was as excited about working in proximity to him as she was ecstatic about the career opportunity.
