Episode #7760 ~ Ridge has a major meltdown upon learning of Steffy and Bill's night together; Hope pays Liam a visit and fills him in on what's happened in her life since she left Los Angeles.
Provided By SuzanneRidge: Spencer?
Steffy: Yeah. We, uh...
Ridge: No. No.
Steffy: Can you please just let me explain?
Ridge: You and spencer, together.
Steffy: It was a mistake!
Ridge: You didn't do that. You wouldn't do that.
Steffy: I did. I did. Yeah, I slept with bill, and now liam hates me.
Ridge: No. You didn't do anything. He took advantage of you. And I'm gonna kill him.
Bill: So, ridge thinks he can get steffy to open up to him.
Brooke: Why wouldn't she?
Bill: Well, I could think of a few reasons.
Brooke: Ridge is her father.
Bill: That would be one of the reasons.
Brooke: Well, they're very close. If she would confide in anybody, she would confide in him.
Bill: Not necessarily.
Brooke: You're almost acting like you don't want her to.
Bill: No. No, no. Not at all. I -- listen, I have no control over what steffy does or doesn't do.
Brooke: There's a lot bothering her. She and liam are having trouble in their marriage, and as soon as she opens up about all of that, things will be better.
Bill: Yeah, I -- I don't know about that. And, listen, you know, it's none of ridge's business anyway, right? This is really between my son and his wife.
Brooke: None of this makes sense to me. I don't understand why liam walked out.
Hope: I just wish there was something I could do.
Liam: It's still nice of you to stop by, hope.
Hope: Look, I -- I don't want to intrude, but i know you're going through a rough time, and I know you said you don't want to talk about what happened between you and steffy, but... liam, I know you. Whatever it is, it must be a big deal. I can just tell. You're in so much pain, and it -- it breaks my heart to see you like this.
Liam: I appreciate you coming here, and all of your concern. I just -- I hope you understand if I don'T...
Hope: If you don't want to get into it. Of course.
Liam: I mean, I know you know something happened in my marriage. I just -- I can'T. I can't talk about what it is.
Hope: It's okay. It's okay. You don't have to say anything else. I just -- I just want you to know that you have a friend in me, liam. Always. In other news... I'm in town for good. And I've got lots of free time on my hands, so...I don't know, if you want to play cards or watch a bad movie on pay-per-view or...I don't know, just sit in silence... I am totally game.
Liam: I've missed you.
Hope: I missed you, too.
Brooke: Liam and steffy just renewed their vows, and now their marriage is ending.
Bill: It's not going to come to that.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Steffy seemed to think it was.
Bill: Liam just needs time to cool off.
Brooke: No. No. It's more than that.
[ Sighs ] Liam left. So something must have come between them. I don't understand because they were doing so well. You're liam's father. I mean, he must have confided in you somehow. Did he tell you what came between them?
Ridge: I am so sorry this happened to you. My sweet girl, are you hurt? Are you okay?
Steffy: No. No. Dad, I'm fine. I'm fine. Bill didn't --
Ridge: I knew he was dangerous, I always knew that. He beat up his own son. He threw me out of a helicopter. He tried to kill me. But now this? With you? He assaulted you.
Hope: Can I get you anything? I mean, it doesn't look like you brought much with you. I can go get food, bring it back...
Liam: Oh, um... uh... thanks. I don't have much of an appetite. I, um... I could keep talking about you, though. I could do that. Your time in europe and what's been happening. Can we do that?
Hope: Sure. Yeah, I kind of shifted away from fashion for a little bit. I was still working in the milan office, but I found a good balance. I started working with a human rights organization.
Liam: Oh, wow. I didn't -- I -- I didn't know that. That sounds like a lot of hard work.
Hope: Yeah, you know, i wanted to make a difference somehow. So I started working with families, trying to find them, you know, new homes, new communities, new schools, clothing, food -- I mean... god, there is such an overwhelming need for so much more. Yeah, it was difficult at times, but...it was incredibly rewarding, and it just gave me this greater sense of purpose and joy in my life.
Brooke: Well, it can't be hope. She just got back in town. It's got to be somebody else. Something or someone has come between steffy and liam. Be honest, bill. Do you think it's an affair?
Bill: I'm sure it's more complicated than that.
[ Knocks on door ]
Justin: Oh. Brooke, what a pleasure. Didn't think I would ever see you again.
Bill: She's not dead, justin. She just got an annulment.
Justin: So I heard. I don't know if I should congratulate you or say you made a big mistake for leaving my friend.
Bill: Oh, I think we all know the answer to that.
Brooke: Bill and I have had some wonderful times together. And he knows that he will always have a special place in my heart. But it was time for both of us to move on.
Justin: Wow. The end of an era. I wish you both well.
Brooke: Thank you, justin. And thank you, bill, for signing the papers and making things as easy as possible.
Bill: Probably a fool for letting you go.
Justin: Probably? Really?
Brooke: Oh, I'm not worried about bill. I have a feeling there's already a special lady in his life.
Steffy: Dad. Dad. No, you got it all wrong. Bill didn't try to hurt me.
Ridge: Did you call the police?
Steffy: What?! No!
Ridge: We got to do that. We got to call the police.
Steffy: No, no! Dad! This isn't a crime! Dad, can you just let me explain?
Ridge: Is this what happened? Is this why liam left? Why he left you? And you -- your unborn child? Because of what spencer did?
Steffy: Dad, no. No!
Ridge: I'm gonna make sure he ends up in jail.
Steffy: I wasn't thinking straight, but bill didn't force himself on me.
Ridge: He didn't force himself on you? He used you. You -- you were vulnerable, and you need someone, and he -- he just moved in. And I'm gonna make him pay. I'm gonna make sure that he rots in jail.
Liam: So, why now, hope? I mean, why would you come back to L.A.?
Hope: You know, I've been bouncing around europe, enjoying every minute of it, but I missed my home. My mom, my brothers, my friends...even you. Yeah, and then one day, I got a call from ridge, and he kind of convinced me to come home. A little surprise for my mom.
Liam: I'm sure she loved that.
Hope: Oh, my gosh, she is thrilled to have me home, and, you know, I am, too. Right now, I want to be here. I just, you know, want to get grounded with friends and family and, I don't know, maybe reboot hope for the future. Incorporate it with some of my charitable work.
Liam: Good. You should.
Hope: Yeah, but right now, I'm just excited to get caught up with everybody. I'm gonna go apartment hunting and restock my kitchen, and then...
Liam: I'm sorry. Did you -- back up. Did you say "kitchen?" You -- if I recall, you're more of a restaurant enthusiast.
Hope: Well, not anymore. I finally learned how to cook.
Liam: No, you didn'T. No, you didn'T. Nope.
Hope: No, seriously. I am talking real, authentic,
[ Italian accent ] Italian food! Mwah! Homemade pasta!
Liam: Oh, my god, if the accent's any indication, it must be good.
Hope: And using only the freshest ingredients.
Liam: All right.
Hope: I even grew -- I'm not kidding -- I even grew my own tomatoes.
Liam: You win. I'm impressed.
Hope: No, I will make a plate of truffle pasta, and you will have to try it one of these days.
Liam: I'd like that.
Hope: Was that -- oh, my gosh. Is that -- did you just smile?
[ Gasps, laughs ]
Liam: I just -- I'm happy you're happy, that's all. Your work in europe and helping people, that's -- I'm proud of you.
Hope: Yeah, well, you know, it kept me out of the social scene, which I have had enough of growing up around the forresters.
Liam: There's got to be some social scene in europe, right? You must have dated.
Hope: Well, you know, italian men do like their blondes.
Liam: Hope, your hair color had nothing to do with it.
Justin: Steffy's with ridge right now?
Bill: Probably finding out about his daughter and me.
Justin: We'll have to put him back on the ban-from-the-building list.
Bill: Not necessary.
Justin: He's still gonna become a furious father. You better watch your back, dollar bill, because forrester will be gunning for you.
Ridge: I'm going to the police. He's gonna pay for what he did.
Steffy: Dad, stop! Please! I'm not a little girl! You weren't there. I was! Look, I was devastated over liam. He told me about kissing sally, and I left! I went to granddad's guest house, and bill showed up.
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Steffy: Look, I -- I can't explain why it happened, but we -- we fell into each other's arms. He didn't attack me, dad. I take full responsibility for this.
Ridge: No. That's what he wants you to think. That's what he wants you to think happened. That's not what happened.
Steffy: I know that's what you want to hear, but that's --
Ridge: He victimized you! How do you not see that?
Steffy: Dad, can you please -- do not go to the police about this. And do not go to bill! Can you hear me? Can you please listen to what I'm saying? There was no crime. Bill wasn't aggressive. This was consensual.
Ridge: Consensual? You wouldn't do that. You wouldn't do that to him. You wouldn't do that to me. Not with -- with that scumbag. See it for what it is.
Steffy: Dad, please! I'm not gonna talk if you're not gonna listen to me! I regret this, all right? I regret it to my core. I regret leaving this house. I regret going there! But bill didn't assault me, and you can't accuse him of that.
Ridge: I know what I know.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Well, bill has feelings for me, dad. He says he loves me. That's why you and brooke haven't heard from him.
Ridge: Sp-- spencer said he loves you?
Ridge: But you don't -- you don't have feelings for him, right?
Steffy: No. I want liam to come home.
Ridge: Okay. Okay, good. Let's work on that. I know this is confusing right now because spencer, he vowed vengeance against liam and against me.
Steffy: No, this is has nothing to do with you.
Ridge: This has everything to do with me. This was premeditated.
Steffy: No, dad, you're believing what you want. You're not hearing me. Please. You can't say anything. I told you in the strictest of confidence. Bill didn't victimize me. If he did, I would go to the police, I would have pressed charges, but he didn't violate me.
Ridge: You don't see it, or you wouldn't have done it otherwise.
Steffy: No, dad. No, I did it. Nothing was done to me. I did it, and you need to accept that.
Ridge: You were helpless, and you wanted to be alone. And he saw that. He used you. He made his move on you.
Steffy: That's not true. Why are you being so stubborn?
Ridge: Because I'm your dad. I'm supposed to protect you. And I wasn't there. But I'm here now, and I'm gonna make this right. So I'm gonna call brooke, and she's coming over, and... I want you to open up to her. Just tell her what's going on because you can't hold onto this. It's not good for the baby, it's not good for liam, liam's baby. It's not --
Steffy: Dad, where are you going, what are you doing? Dad, please, do not go to --
Ridge: Hey. Hey. You will always be my little girl. Always.
Hope: I'll admit it. Part of me hated leaving L.A., But I needed time to find myself after everything I've been through.
Liam: Well, clearly I can relate to that. Sometimes you just -- you got to go, you know? Get yourself out of a situation, plant your feet somewhere else, see what happens.
Hope: Yes, but sometimes being alone isn't always the best solution. I mean, for me, it was a growing experience -- getting out of my boundaries. You know, I gained a lot of confidence. I had a stronger sense of who i am, I'm not as hard on myself anymore, and when I look in the mirror now, I -- I like who I see.
Liam: I like what I see, too.
Hope: Well, good, because I'm sticking around town for a while.
Liam: I'm glad you're back, hope.
Hope: Me, too.
[ Door opens ]
Justin: Now's not the time for "I told you so." We have a problem. Ridge forrester just blew past security. Want me to stop him?
Bill: No. I'll handle it.
Justin: You sure? Because I don't think I like that idea.
Bill: I got it, justin.
Justin: Call me. If you need me, call me.
Ridge: What did you do? What did you do to my daughter?
