Episode #8534 ~ Refusing to give up Bill, Liam stays silent as Baker grills him for more information. An angry Hope confronts Dollar Bill, blaming him for Liam being in prison.
Provided By SuzanneBill: You're sure liam isn't in the building? He should've been here by now. Never mind. Finally, what took you two so-- where's liam? Where is my son?
Baker: You said that you wouldn't answer any more questions without your attorney present. But I'm that hoping that you'd cooperate.
Liam: I've been cooperating, I--I wanna cooperate in every way possible.
Baker: I think there could be more. I think there are other details from that night that you're just holding back.
Liam: Why-- why do you think that?
Baker: I've been a cop a long time, for hundreds of investigations. You--you develop an instinct, maybe a sixth sense when someone's not being entirely forthcoming.
Liam: Okay. So, you think I'm lying?
Baker: It's difficult for me to believe that you're in this situation at all. Hit-and-run, vehicular manslaughter? And yet here you are, facing the very real possibility of years behind bars. And that's why I've gotta ask you, liam. One last time, is-- is there anything else that you're holding back? Anything that might change the dynamic of this case. Because if there is and if you're just withholding pertinent information, then you're just gonna make matters worse for yourself... and for those who love and care about you.
Ridge: Hey, got your message. Everything okay?
Brooke: Oh, there you are. Here, tell me what you think.
Ridge: What I think.
Ridge: Uh, oh, okay, uh, spa day for hope and liam.
Brooke: Yeah, it's supposed to be very romantic.
Ridge: Yeah, I know, it's-- it's romantic, be more romantic if it was, uh, you and me going to a spa and so I can see my hot, sexy wife naked.
Brooke: I would love more than anything to go to a romantic spa with my hot, sexy husband. But I think hope and liam deserve it more than we do given what they've been through, what do you think?
Ridge: Sure. Yeah. They--they-- it's a very nice thought you had.
Brooke: Well, it's a gift from you too. I used your credit card.
Ridge: So it's only a gift from me if I paid for it, right?
Brooke: No, no, it was my idea, that's--
Ridge: You know, look, I don't wanna jinx anything, things are better, they're great. Hope and liam back together and steffy and finn having a boy, we're gonna go to a spa one of these days--
Ridge: What? Oh, I-- I didn't get to tell you. No, no, steffy went to the doctor today and she's having a boy. We're gonna have a grandson. Isn't that perfect news?
Brooke: That'S... [ Laughs ]
Ridge: I know.
Brooke: I can't believe it.
Baker: You have nothing more to say?
Liam: I've told you everything I can.
Baker: But not everything there is to tell.
Liam: I admitted that I'm the one who hit vinny. I told you that was an accident.
Baker: An accident that took you quite some time to report.
Liam: I--yes, and that was wrong, so much of what I did that night was wrong and if I could take it back, I would.
Baker: Yeah. You've said that before.
Liam: Well, it's true, if I had-- it doesn't--it doesn't matter, I can't change any of it anyway, so...
Baker: Look, liam, I believe hope when she says you're a good man. The liam spencer who allegedly covered up a hit-and-run does not jive with the liam spencer your wife knows. How the liam spencer everyone seems to know, including myself. So I gotta ask you one last time, is there anything about that night that you're still holding back?
Bill: Where is my son? Damn it, hope, where is liam?
Hope: Liam just wanted you to think that we left the police station and he wanted to get rid of you so that he could do what he needed to do.
Bill: Needed to do. Are you telling me--
Hope: Liam is in custody, yes.
Bill: He's in custody. My son confessed? New pronamel mineral boost
Brooke: You know what I think we should do?
Ridge: I know what I think we should do.
Brooke: [ Laughs ] Plan a special evening for finn and steffy and hope and liam.
Ridge: Does this, uh-- this special evening include your friend bill spencer because you said we're planning something with him for hope and liam.
Brooke: Uh, well, yeah, we could combine the two and celebrate finn and steffy's good news and hope and liam'S. Really, it'll be good for everybody to just put the past behind them and move forward with their lives. So what do you say?
Ridge: You know what I say.
Brooke: [ Laughs ]
Ridge: I say you are the most optimistic person I've ever met in my life and that's why I love you.
Brooke: And I love you. And I also love when the people that we love have wonderful things going on in their lives.
Brooke: Like getting a new baby boy, the healing marriage.
Ridge: Uh-hmm. I think things are good for our kids at long last.
[ Laughs ]
Baker: Let me tell you how I see it. Getting rid of the car, covering up the evidence, that took some doing. Only you were undoubtedly traumatized by what had happened. Wasn't thinking it all straight you say. And yet you expect me to believe that you still had the presence of mind to carry out this intricate cover-up and to do it all on your own doesn't make sense, liam. And when something doesn't make sense, it just generates more questions. Questions that I'm determined to get to the bottom of.
Liam: I understand that.
Baker: And yet you still don't wanna cooperate?
Liam: Okay. Look, chief baker, I get that you think there's more to this. But all that matters is that I was behind the wheel that night. That--that is the only piece of information you need to know or should even care about. Vinny walker is dead because of me. You got your man.
Bill: I can't believe this. I can't believe that liam confessed after he agreed-- he agreed to meet back here so we could talk about it and--
Hope: He couldn't go on like that anymore, bill. The secrets and the lies, they were killing him.
Bill: The memory- of that night would've faded away... gradually. Gradually, liam would've gotten his life back.
Hope: If you believe that, then you don't know your son at all.
Bill: I know my son!
Hope: The only way liam felt that he could make peace with it was to own up for what he did.
Bill: How, hope? How? How could you let him do this?
Hope: How could I? What about you? You're the one who committed the real crime here. You orchestrated the entire cover-up. That is on you, bill. Liam is behind bars because of what you did.
Bill: And I made sure that there was nothing to tie liam to what happened. Liam is behind bars because you convinced him to confess and you say you love him? How could you say that?
Hope: Don't you ask me that. You know I love liam more than anything.
Bill: Well, you got a damn strange way of showing it. Now, kelly and beth are gonna lose their father and you're going to lose your family and why? Because you and liam had to do what was right.
Hope: And why couldn't you have done the right thing that night? But no, no, you had to take matters into your own hands and make the situation worse by throwing liam in the back of your car and driving off.
Bill: You weren't there. I had to protect my son and that's what I did!
Hope: Well, you know what, I don't really care how you rationalize itor what you need to tell yourself at night, but, bill, I am telling you right now, if I lose my husband, if my children lose their father, I will-- I will never forgive you for what you did.
Bill: Will you forgive yourself? "Confess, liam, it'll cleanse your soul, set you free," did it? Well, it doesn't matter now, does it? But I'll tell you this, if you believe that I will let my son spend one night behind bars because of the part I played in this-- I love my son and I will move heaven and earth to save him. I will not rest until he is home with you and those girls. Whatever it takes! Whatever it takes. When eye allergens attack, the itch can last 24 hours.
Brooke: Hi, honey. I was just in the garden picking these sweet little flowers and I thought this was the perfect spot for them. What do you think? Hope? What is it? It's not the children, is it?
Brooke: Is liam with you? Honey, I can see that something's wrong. Please, talk to me.
Hope: Do you remember that night liam and i kissed for the first time after he moved out?
Brooke: Yes, I remember. I was very happy for you. For the both of you.
Hope: And bill was here, too.
Brooke: Yes, he was up at the main house with me. And he was just as concerned about you and liam as I was.
Hope: He thought he might've had a little too much to drink and he asked liam to drive them home in his car.
Brooke: Okay, so what are you getting at?
Hope: You recall that's the night vinny was run over?
Brooke: Yes.&&--Ppi mean, thomas is very upset. He still doesn't understand why the police haven't found who actually hit his friend.
Hope: Well, they have now. That person turned himself in today.
Brooke: What? Who is it?
Hope: Mom, I just-- I--I want you to try to understand the circumstances of--of vinny's accident before we get into it. I mean, it was dark and road was really windy and the driver didn't have time to react, vinny was just suddenly there in front of their car, and then he just-- he died moments later.
Brooke: How--how do you know all this, honey? Did the police tell thomas?
Hope: The person who was behind the wheel told me.
Brooke: Oh, my god. No. No. Don't tell me. Don't tell me that--
Hope: Liam did it. The person who hit vinny that night... was liam.
Baker: I got a few more questions.
Liam: No, I'm sorry. Not-- not without an attorney present. I think we're done here.
Baker: Then I'll have officer cruz return you to your cell.
[ Door buzzes ]
Baker: Wait a minute!
Bill: I wanna talk to liam!
Baker: What are you doing here, mr. Spencer? You can't be in here!
Bill: Well, I am here and you've arrested my son!
Baker: Yeah, for a crime he's admitted to. The hit-and-run of vincent walker.
Bill: Yeah, I'm well aware. Hope told me.
Baker: Yeah, well, then you also know he's in a hell of a lot of trouble.
Bill: Well, you don't have to be a detective to figure that one out. Now, we're wasting time! Either let me talk to my son or I'm gonna...
Baker: Or what?
Bill: Please, chief baker. I just need a couple of minutes with my son.
Baker: Five minutes. That's all I'd give you.
Bill: Thank you.
Bill: Why, liam?
Liam: Dad. I had to. It was the only way--
Bill: It wasn't the only way. I took care of everything. They would've never known it was you.
Liam: Listen. I know that this didn't go the way that you wanted it to, but I have completely kept your name out of it. They have no idea.
Bill: I'm not worried about myself. I'm scared to death for you. And that's why I'm telling baker that I was there that night. You didn't commit a crime. I committed the crime by driving us away and covering it up. I will not let my son spend one night in prison. Not one night. Trusted by pet owners for over 20 years
Brooke: Honey, this can't be right. Liam would never do something like that. Hit-and-run?
Hope: It was an accident. It was an-- horrible accident. That vinny apparently just appeared in the middle of the road and liam didn't have time to react. It-- he didn't have time.
Brooke: Honey, honey. It's okay. Oh, sweetheart. I'm so sorry. Oh. How long have you known? And did liam tell you right away when it happened?
Hope: No. I only just found out.
Brooke: He's been carrying this with him the whole time?
Hope: Well, the guilt, the burden, it's been killing him and that's why he finally had to tell me and-- I mean, I knew something was wrong. I just--I didn't think it could be what it turned out to be.
Brooke: And he turned himself in? Oh, gosh.
Hope: I just came from-- and... I'm proud of him for doing the right thing and coming forward, but it's-- it's very difficult when you actually see him in handcuffs being led away. And I could feel my heart shattering. And I... I still can'T.
Brooke: Honey, I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Bill: I mean it, liam. You're not taking the fall for this. I'm telling baker that I drove us away after you passed out.
Liam: Dad, no!
Bill: Listen to me! You have hope. You have your children, your entire life in front of you. I'm not letting you throw that away. I am telling baker that I'm responsible.
Liam: No. Okay. That's not happening. First of all, because it's not even true, I was the one driving, I'm the one who hit him, I'm responsible, and I deserve to pay!
Bill: I don't wanna ever hear you say that again. It was an accident! The crime was me driving us away!
Liam: Dad. Dad, listen, listen, I have not brought your name into this. And I'm not going to. Ever.
Bill: No, liam!
Liam: Yes, dad! You're not gonna change my mind about this. I love you for trying to protect me, but you have your own life, you have a wife, and you have a child. You have will! He depends on you. Now, I-- listen, you are hell of a lot more valuable to me free than you are in here because I need you to take care of hope. And--and beth, and kelly. Dad, I-- just, please just tell me-- tell me that I can count on you. Tell me that my family can count on you.
Bill: Your family has to be able to count on you. Not me! Vinny was a lying, drug-dealing conman! And you are not going to spend one second in prison because of that degenerate!
[ Door buzzes ]
Baker: Time's up, spencer. Let's go, liam.
Bill: Stop! You've got the wrong man.
Liam: Dad, don't! Don't!
Bill: Liam was telling you the truth. Vinny stepped in front of the car out of nowhere. And I know that as a fact because I was in the car with liam.
Liam: Oh, oh, my god.
Bill: The crime was me driving us away and covering it up. Liam had nothing to do with it. You wanna arrest somebody? You arrest me. You put the cuffs on me, you lock me away! And you let my son go free.
