Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) told Hope (Kim Matula) she was glad that everything was out in the open about Bill (Don Diamont). When Steffy asked where Liam (Scott Clifton) was, Hope said he’d gone to confront his father. Hope told Steffy that she and Liam wouldn’t even be together if it wasn’t for Bill’s interference.
At the Spencer mansion, Bill made a speech about how the pain he felt was nothing in comparison to the pain he felt when Liam said he didn’t want him to be in his life. Bill told Liam that he couldn’t throw away their relationship. I don’t understand how Liam, after everything he now knows his father has done, didn’t just laugh in Bill’s face when he stabbed himself. This is one of the stupidest things we’ve seen on soaps since Passions was still on the air.
Bill asked Liam to take back the now bloodied sword necklace. The gullible son Liam is, he accepted it and the two men hugged. After Liam left, a jeweler arrived so Bill could choose a piece for Katie (Heather Tom). When the jeweler asked about payment, Bill opened his shirt to reveal a small money bag strapped to his chest where he’d stabbed himself.
The Bold and the Beautiful has officially made me never want to visit whatever part of Italy they shot at on location. I am so sick of Italy flashbacks it isn’t even funny.
In 2012 The Bold and the Beautiful was the Liam/Hope/Steffy show. So far in 2013, there is absolutely no indication anything has changed. It boggles the mind that ratings actually go up when this story is playing out.
