Bill barges in and tells Liam that he wants him to be happy. It’s do or die time. It’s time to stop this divorce and stay with Steffy. Brooke explains to Eric that Ridge could not be disloyal to Steffy and would not agree to design Hope’s wedding dress. She’d like him to help. He’d be delighted. Eric is aghast when he hears Hope is thinking about Deacon, even to the point of asking him to walk her down the aisle. Ridge, Taylor and Stephanie greet Steffy good morning. All are optimistic that by the end of the day – at midnight Liam will have come to his senses and cancel the divorce. Steffy shows them that she has wedding bells on her phone for when that magic moment comes.
