Katie is sitting in her husband’s bed. Bill comes in and says that’s what he likes to see, Katie waiting in bed for him. Katie says that she was just enjoying some quiet time. Bill coyly says he’s disturbing her and should let her enjoy her time. He says that there is a game on TV and he will go watch that instead, but Katie tells him to get in the bedroom. Bill leaps onto the bed and they share a kiss and then another.
Ridge and Brooke are hugging in their bedroom. Ridge says that Brooke waited up for him but she says she was busy planning the wedding so she didn’t sleep yet. Ridge nods and tells her that it was good that she left the office when she did, prompting her to ask him what happened. Ridge tells her that Thorne is stirring up trouble but Brooke says that she’s sure that he can handle it and that she has faith in him. She turns him around and looks at him seductively and asks if he can handle her though to which Ridge smiles in excitement.
At Forrester, Steffy is pacing around all by herself with a smile on her face. A flashback reveals that Steffy is reminiscing about the recent kiss she shared with Liam on the beach after helping him write an article for Eye on Fashion. Thomas comes in and snaps her out of her trance. Thomas asks her where she ran off to, as he had been looking for her. Steffy tells him she was just looking for Liam. Thomas asks her if she found him to which Steffy smiles and says with a sparkle in her eye, “Not yet, but I will.”
Back at Ridge’s house, Ridge although turned on by his wife, turns around and goes back to sorting out his files leaving Brooke to realize that whatever happened at the office is weighing on his mind. Brooke smiles and tells Ridge to get whatever it is off his chest so that he can relax and enjoy her. Ridge turns and tells her that Thorne is telling Taylor not to give him the voting rights on Thomas’ stock at which Brooke falls silent. Ridge continues and says that suddenly Thorne is becoming the protector of his ex-wife and children. He says seriously that they might have a mutiny on their hands. Brooke only sighs and tells him not to be such a “worry-wort,” but Ridge continues on a serious note and tells her that it got pretty heated in the office after she left.
Brooke asks if he and Thorne ended up arguing. Ridge admits that it was worse than that, as things even got physical. Brooke looks at Ridge pointedly and says “Ridge,” in a chastising way but Ridge informs her that Thorne and Taylor kissed. Brooke looks surprised at the news and asks if it was a “kiss, kiss,” to which Ridge says yes, it did look like that. He says it was awkward but Brooke says she thinks it’s kind of cute. Ridge strongly disagrees to her opinion about the kiss being cute but Brooke tells him that Thorne and Taylor might be good together. Ridge looks at Brooke in annoyance over her words.
At the Spencer house, Bill and Katie are in bed. Katie tells Bill that she likes this, the peace they are enjoying right now and how all is right with their “world” right now. Bill says he hopes that one day his son can have something like this too to which Katie says that he’s marrying the girl of his dreams just like Bill did. Bill says that Liam has been having a rough time lately and Katie agrees that Liam does look a little distracted nowadays.
Bill says that she has her niece (Hope) to blame for that. Katie doesn’t reply to that and instead says that Liam did a good job on the letter from the editor and Bill says that Liam had a little help with that letter. Katie asks him if it was him who helped and smiles but Bill tells her it wasn’t him who helped her. Katie asks him whom it was who did and Bill quietly says that it was Steffy. Katie’s face immediately grows irritated and annoyed at the mention of Steffy’s name, something that Bill appears to sense.
Back at Steffy’s office, Thomas tells Steffy that she’s playing with fire. Steffy tells her brother that if she thought Hope was the right girl for Liam then she would have already backed away. Thomas asks his sister if she’s sure this isn’t about Hope and about winning. That if she’s maybe trying to get back at Hope by stealing her man to which Steffy firmly says that’s not what it’s about at all. When Thomas looks at her doubtfully Steffy elaborates and tells her brother that she cares about Liam and she thinks she’s falling in love with him.
Hope and Liam are at his cliff house on the couch kissing passionately over and over again. When Hope pulls away for a second, Liam says that he can’t believe that she did all this, namely set up this candle-lit room and came here for him. Hope says that they needed a night like this for so long and she says she needed it too.
She looks at Liam sadly and says that he can go ahead and say that she has been neglecting him lately but Liam says that he would never say that. Then he changes his answer and says maybe just a little but he knows how hard it is to make time. Hope says that they need to make time for each other to which Liam says that he doesn’t like how he is when she’s not around. Hope looks at him with a smile and says that in a few months she will be with him forever to which Liam impatiently says that it can’t come soon enough. Hope says she knows and engages him in a kiss.
Back at Forester, Thomas is still talking to Steffy. He asks her if he needs to remind her that Liam is marrying Hope in a few months. Steffy says no and that she can’t forget that at all because there are posters about it everywhere. She pours herself a glass of water while saying that she feels bad for Liam because he’s being shoved in the middle of an ad campaign.
Thomas hesitates for a moment but continues saying that he doesn’t want to sound like their mother but isn’t it weird that Steffy was in love with Liam’s father first and now him. Steffy firmly tells Thomas that she has no feelings for Bill. Yes she likes him and respects him but that’s as far as it goes. Thomas sighs and asks her where this pull to Liam came from then. He says that he knows Liam saved her from drowning and so she’s bound to feel connected to him. Steffy agrees and says that when Liam saved her she saw him in a new light. She said before that she thought Liam was just a boy and that she thought men had to be powerful and maybe a little mean to which Thomas says “like Bill?” Steffy looks at him firmly and says that Liam is the one who made her realize that not all men are like that. Steffy says that Liam is real and that he’s kind, loving, and loyal and that he’s everything she needs.
Thomas points out that again that Liam is marrying Hope though to which Steffy says but that wedding is months away. She smirks and says that a lot can happen in that much time.
At Spencer’s house, Katie pushes Bill off her lap and asks Bill what Steffy was doing helping Liam. Bill says that Steffy was hanging out at Liam’s place when he was writing the article. Katie looks at him sternly and asks why he was hanging out with her anyway to which Bill says they are friends. Katie huffs at this and doesn’t believe it but Bill says that Liam was stressed and tired and fell asleep and that Steffy was kind enough to finish the letter for him. Katie responds to that by saying “How Sweet,” in a sarcastic way. Bill says that Steffy was just being helpful to which again, Katie huffs in disbelief. She tells Bill that Brooke told her that ever since Bill left Steffy she’s been circling Liam. She says that apparently Brooke was right and they should keep an eye on Steffy. Bill just smiles in response.
Liam and Hope are again shown at his cliff house, still talking. He tells Hope that she shouldn’t feel bad for being so busy. Hope says she does but he tells her not to because he knows how much her work means to her. Hope looks at Liam lovingly and says yes it does but it doesn’t mean as much to her as he does. Liam sighs and says that it has been rough on him that they haven’t had time to be together but he’s so proud of her. He says he likes to see her succeed and he likes to see her happy. Hope smiles and tells him that he is the one who makes her happy. Liam smiles and picks up her left hand. He looks at her engagement ring and sys that seeing it on her hand makes him happy, and knowing that they’ll be spending the rest of their lives together makes him so happy too. He says he can’t wait to be her husband and Hope says that they are going to have such an amazing marriage. She grins and says that she can’t wait to be Mrs. William Spencer the third. Liam and Hope share another kiss.
Back at Ridge’s home, Brooke and Ridge are now snuggled up in bed. Ridge says that at least one of his kids is happy, talking about Hope. Brooke tells him that Steffy will find a man. Ridge says that Thomas and Steffy are frustrated with him right now. He says that they feel pushed aside as if he’s giving all his attention to Hope. Brooke says that, that can’t be an easy position for him to be in but Thomas and Steffy are adults and they shouldn’t feel that they need to compete with Hope.
She tells Ridge that he has plenty of love to go around. Ridge laughs and says that it’s really tough being a parent. Brooke agrees and quips in that Steffy just makes it harder on herself to which Ridge agrees. Brooke says that Steffy has been very vocal about how she feels about Liam and that she doesn’t care that Hope and Liam are engaged. Then she says that if she respects Hope and the family then she would just back off. Brooke says that she doesn’t think Steffy will though and Ridge looks troubled.
At Forester, Thomas asks Steffy if she really thinks that Liam will change his mind about Hope. Steffy says that for his sake it would be the best thing. Thomas says that it would be the best thing for her too. Steffy says that what Hope is doing to him is wrong. Broadcasting it all over the world is wrong. Thomas agrees that it is very personal. Steffy says that no one wants their private life dragged into public and that it’s not fair. She says that, that Lim and Hope’s relationship is built on Hope’s rules and what she wants. Thomas says that if Liam wants to marry her then he has to wait to which Steffy says that, that’s true but Liam is pretty messed up about it. Steffy says she’s worried about Liam but Hope is too busy basking in the limelight to notice Liam. She says that Hope is clueless and has no idea that her relationship with Liam is in trouble.
At Liam’s cliff house, Liam and Hope are again, making out. Hope suddenly pulls away and says she forgot to put the lasagna in the oven. Liam says that he’ll get it. When he gets up to do that he hits his leg on the table and moans in pain. Hope asks him if he’s okay. He says he’s fine and this kind of stuff has been happening a lot lately because he’s been a klutz. He stops and says that it’s not okay, changing his previous happy mood into a frustrated one. Hope asks him what’s wrong and Liam tells her a list of things he’s done wrong in the last week and he admits that he’s not doing very well.
Hope asks him what he’s saying and she asks him what she can do. Liam tells her that all this waiting feels unnatural and Hope says that she doesn’t want to wait either. Liam tells her that he knows this isn’t her fault but he’s kind of feeling like a pawn in the “Hope for the Future” line. He says he feels like it’s taking over their entire relationship to which Hope cuts in and says that honestly, she’s been feeling the exact same way. Liam says quickly, “Why don’t we just get married?” He asks why they are waiting when they love each other. He admits that he can’t wait months and months. He asks Hope if she can move up the wedding date for him.
At Ridge’s house, Ridge tells Brooke not to worry. He tells her that Steffy will respect Hope and Liam’s relationship. Brooke says that she certainly hopes so. She says that things are going so great for Hope right now. She says that she’s just so happy for their little girl and she doesn’t want anything to interfere with that. Ridge holds Brooke close and wears a determined expression.
At Spencer’s house, Katie tells Bill that she thinks Bill should allow Liam to live the life he once lived and not the one he thinks he should live. Bill protests and says that a father knows best but Katie says that in this incidence she’s not so sure that’s true. She says that for future reference that the bedroom is a “Steffy-free zone.” She says that she there is to be no talking about her, no thinking about her and no mentioning her name. Bill agrees and they clink knuckles saying “deal”. Katie says that she doesn’t think they should be talking at all right now anyway and pulls Bill into a deep kiss.
Back at Forester, Steffy tells Thomas that the reason she helped Liam was that he couldn’t concentrate so she wrote the letter for him. Thomas asks if that was the favor, Liam kissed her for. Steffy looks at him firmly and informs him that the kiss was her idea, not Liam’s.
Thomas still says that Liam could have still said no but Steffy says that she thinks he needed that kiss. Then she admits that she thinks he needs a lot more than he’s getting from Hope. Thomas asks her if she’s the one who wants to give it to him. Steffy says that Liam deserves so much more and that she knows she can make him happy. She says that and since Hope is waiting till the wedding, she has all the time in the world to work on Liam.
Hope asks Liam if he wants her to move up the wedding date. Liam says he knows it’s hard. He knows that Hope’s mother is making all these plans and this is supposed to be the wedding of the century. He says he wants it to be a big day but he honestly doesn’t care about the flowers, or the invites. He says he just wants to marry her. Liam also says that he knows it’s not fair of him to ask this of her but he’s kind of at the end of his patience.
Hope cuts into his further explanation and says that she will do it. Liam looks at her in surprise and asks if she will and Hope says yes. She says she doesn’t want to get married either. Liam picks her up and twirls her around saying, “Oh My God!” out of excitement and Hope giggles.
Liam puts her down on her feet and they hug and Hope says that this waiting has been too hard on both of them. Liam says he thought he was the only one and Hope laughs. He pulls away and asks her if they can marry tomorrow or this week but Hope says not that soon but she promises it will be soon. She has to tell her parents and everyone at Forester and there is no getting around, that but she agrees that given the circumstances, and after everything she’s asking of him, she wants to get married just as badly as he does.
Liam looks at her excitedly and asks if this means the wedding will be in weeks instead of months. Hope nods and says that there may be some resistance but it’s her line anyway so he has her word. She says yes again and promises him that it will happen. Liam grins and says, “We’re getting married,” before he kisses her and hugs her and Hope squeals a yes. The scene ends with a musical montage of the couple.
At Forester, Steffy is looking at a poster for Hope for the Future for the wedding. She runs her hand over Liam’s image and looks at him longingly before she remembers the time he saved her life and they shared a kiss. She snaps out of her memory and looks at the poster again. She shakes her head and says determinedly, “No, I can’t let this happen.”
