Episode #7765 ~ Unable to deny his love for her, Bill pleads with Steffy for them to be together; after punching Bill, Ridge heads to Liam's and begs him to not allow Bill to destroy his family.
Provided By SuzanneBill: You can't stay holed up in this house, tortured and tormented. It's not good for you or the baby. The time to move forward is quickly approaching, steffy. And if liam doesn't wake up, you have to make your and the baby's health the priority. Liam is a grown man who can fend for himself. That life you're carrying cannot. It needs its mommy. It needs its mommy strong. Emotionally and physically. You can count on me to be here for both of you. To love both of you.
Ridge: I can't even begin to understand the pain and the hurt that you're going through right now. But you're strong. Don't let your father do this to you. Don't let him break you. Go to steffy. Go to her before it's too late.
Brooke: I know this isn't what you were expecting to come home to. I'm sorry.
Hope: Why are you apologizing? You know, it should be steffy apologizing to liam.
Brooke: She has, repeatedly. But liam is devastated.
Hope: Of course he is. I mean, finding out his wife and his father... I can't even say it. [ Scoffs ] Ugh, gosh. I mean, you said it happened only once?
Brooke: Well, that is what they are saying. I just don't know how steffy and liam are going to survive this. I don't know how their marriage is going to survive this.
Hope: I'm just worried about liam. To be betrayed not by one, but two people you love...
Brooke: [ Sighs ] I am so furious -- furious with bill.
Hope: I am just glad you ended things with him when you did. I mean, if he is capable of this kind of cruelty... I knew he was capable of pulling a dirty trick or two. I've been on the receiving end multiple times. But for a father to do this to his own son...
Brooke: I was shocked when i heard about bill and steffy. All this talk about love and family and how much he cares about his sons... and he said this wasn't revenge.
Hope: Revenge or not, this was wrong on every level.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] As bad as I feel for liam and for their marriage and this baby on the way, I can't stop thinking about ridge and what this is doing to him, his enormous love for steffy.
Ridge: What is it, really? What's holding you back? You just don't think you'll ever be able to look at steffy the same way again? You will be. It takes time, but it's gonna be okay. Don't let your father do this to you, don't let him destroy everything you've worked for. Steffy made a mistake, but he was pulling the strings. She doesn't want to be with him, she wants to be with you. That's why that baby is so important. It's a baby that you guys made together, out of love. She loves you so much, and, yes, you love her. I know this sucks. But you can get through it. If you choose to.
Liam: You're right. I love your daughter. I love steffy. I -- I love her so much. But do you understand that as much as I want to forgive her, I can't? I can'T.
Bill: I honestly believe the pain and guilt that's overwhelming you now will be replaced by unbridled joy when you're holding your baby in your arms. A baby you thought you'd never have, steffy. And I'll be here for both of you.
Steffy: No. No, I can't accept that my marriage is over.
Bill: There are annulment papers. Liam told you he'll never take you back.
Steffy: I refuse to believe that. Our child deserves to be in a loving home with a mother and a father, and liam and I, we can still give that to our child. Somehow, I'm gonna repair my marriage. I'm not giving up on the man i love.
Liam: I realize it's not what you want to hear, but... it's all I got.
Ridge: Okay. Try to reach out to her if you can.
Liam: Ridge, what -- what do you -- what do you think it's like to be me right now? Seriously. Do you think I'm lying to you? Or to myself? Do you imagine that I must not really want a life and a family with your daughter all that much? Is that what you think? What do you -- what do you think I mean when I say "I can't?" I can't walk through walls. I can't fly. I can't move objects with my mind. And I can't forgive steffy. I'm not there yet. Okay? I'm not there yet. And I may never be there.
Ridge: You know, the thing about being a father... you know everything about your kid. Everything. And I know my daughter has never loved anyone the way she loves you. She made a mistake. And that's on bill. But I get it. I understand you can't find it in you to forgive, I get it. Do me a favor. Leave that door open just a little crack. You never know when the light's gonna come through.
Steffy: Liam and I have something amazing together.
Bill: You did. But liam's gone, and you're alone and pregnant.
Steffy: I don't need you to rescue me.
Bill: It's not about rescuing you. Protecting you, yes. You and that baby are my priority.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Bill: Look... I know none of this is easy. It's not easy for me, either, especially with, uh, your father throwing around accusations. But we both know what happened that night. We made love.
Steffy: Bill, stop it. I don't want --
Bill: It's true. That's what it was. We both know it. And that's what makes this so difficult. I want to do what's right, i want to do what's right by liam, but not at your or the baby's expense. I love you both too much to do that.
Hope: Well, I'm glad ridge has you. Especially now.
Brooke: I just wish there was more I could do.
Ridge: More you could do about what? Everything okay?
Brooke: Yeah. I've been trying to reach you.
Ridge: Yeah, well, it's been a day. I turned off my phone.
Brooke: Where were you?
Ridge: It's a long story. Hi, hope.
Hope: Hi. I'll let you two have your privacy, but I just wanted you to know I'm sorry. About everything.
Brooke: She was concerned about liam and steffy. She had a lot of questions.
Brooke: I went to see bill, and I know what you did.
Ridge: I didn't do nearly enough. And I know you don't like violence, but that is my daughter, okay?
Brooke: I know. I understand.
Ridge: Do you understand? Do you?
Brooke: Yes. I do. Yes.
Ridge: Because I don't -- I don't understand any of it. This is twisted, even for spencer. It's his own son. He destroyed his life, he destroyed his marriage, and now... he's talking about steffy... he says he loves her. Can you believe that? I know about love. This is just his conquest. That's my kid, brooke. She's nobody conquest. That's my little girl. I'm not gonna let him do it. I won'T.
Ridge: Steffy's alone. She's heartbroken. She's pregnant. And spencer, he keeps sniffing around. He wants to pull her even more into his world, and I just -- I can't let that happen. You understand that.
Brooke: What about liam? I mean, if he could just find it in his heart to forgive her...
Ridge: Yeah, if only he could.
[ Sighs ] I was talking to him. I -- I don'T...
Brooke: Really? That's where you were? Speaking with liam?
Ridge: I tried to make him see that what his father did was criminal. But I don't know that he wants to see it that way, I don't -- I don't know.
Brooke: What if steffy doesn't see it that way?
Ridge: She can't see anything right now. Spencer took advantage of her.
Brooke: So, how did you leave it with liam?
Ridge: He's broken. But with every look, every... every word, you can just see how much he loves steffy. He just can't find it in his heart to forgive her. But, hey, I don't know, maybe -- maybe he can find a way to get past the hurt and see the goodness in her.
Ridge: Don't let your father
do this to you.
Don't let him destroy
everything you've worked for.
Steffy made a mistake,
but he was pulling the strings.
I understand you can't find it
in you to forgive.
Do me a favor.
Leave that door open just a
Steffy: We will be happy.
Our baby will be happy.
You just have to find a place
of forgiveness within you.
Steffy: Don't do this, bill.
Bill: Don't do what? Tell you how I feel?
Steffy: You're creating a fantasy of the two of us.
Bill: No. Not a fantasy. That's not who I am and you know that. I'm more of a realist than anyone you know. And I'm asking the same of you. To be completely honest with yourself.
Steffy: Here's honesty. You shouldn't be coming here. I'm having your son's baby. I can't just go off with his father. It's out of the question.
[ Sighs ] It was one night. And it was the biggest mistake of my life. I am not gonna make that mistake even worse.
Bill: I'm sorry. The last thing I ever want to do is cause you pain.
Steffy: You're not the man for me, bill. The man I'm gonna be with is liam.
Bill: What if liam can't get past this?
Steffy: He will. He will. He has to. Look, I know he feels what I did changed the way he sees me, but I got to believe that in time, especially closer to the baby being born, that that's gonna change. Bill, I'm your daughter-in-law. You're gonna be a grandfather. I really need you to respect that. Respect what I'm trying to do for my sake, for all our sakes.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Bill: Okay. I'll do everything I can to get liam to come around because more than anything, I want to see that beautiful smile back on your face. And if that means staying away, so be it.
Steffy: I just want him back. I just want my husband back.
Ridge: I've never felt this kind of anger towards anyone. Every time I hear his name -- bill, billy, spencer -- I want to rip his head off.
Brooke: I know. I know. I'm angry, too.
Ridge: Well, you know what, you got out just in time because if you would have stayed, he would have done something awful to you, as well.
Brooke: I'm glad that that's over and that I am with you now. I just want to thank you. For everything good and wonderful that you've brought into my life through the years. And if you have one fault, it's that you follow your heart. But then so do I. So that's a good thing, right?
Brooke: And bill --
Ridge: [ Groans ]
Brooke: You know what, we're not gonna talk about bill. We're gonna focus on us and our future.
Brooke: So, you know what, I have a suggestion, something that I think would be good for all of us.
Ridge: And what's that?
Brooke: Let's bring the family together. Hope is back in town, and R.J.'S wanted this forever. And especially for liam and steffy, I think it's time to do this.
Ridge: What are you saying, brooke logan?
Brooke: Well, I believe that love conquers all. No matter how hard the obstacle. And I think that maybe we could be an example for our children. You and I have been through so much through the years, and we've forgiven each other. And we love each other.
Brooke: Maybe more than we ever have. And I just think that maybe they could learn something from us, you know? They could... it might help with them their issues, their problems. I don't know. I just love you so much. I do. I just...
[ Laughs ] That's it. I just -- I wanted to be married to you, okay? Now. Right now.
Ridge: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, I'm sorry. Are you asking me to marry you?
Brooke: [ Laughs ]
Ridge: You are, aren't you?
Brooke: Again. Again. Yes.
Ridge: Well, I accept. You're incredible. And, yeah, I want to marry you right now.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Yeah?
Ridge: Right now. . .
