Steffy tells Liam that she had nothing to do with faking that test. Liam asks Steffy why he should believe a thing she says. Steffy says she knows shes lied to him before but shes not lying now. Hope asks if shes saying the doctor lied then and made it all up but Steffy says it was Bill. Hope asks if she really had nothing to do with it. Steffy says that she thought she was going to die and didnt know it was bogs but Liam is adamant and says no, Steffy and his father have been teaming up ever since the start of his marriage. He asks her how she could pretend to be having a stroke like that and lie to him and asks her who she is.
Ridge asks Brooke if she is okay. Brooke hugs Ridge and tells him that Steffy and Liams marriage may be over. Ridge looks back at Brooke disbelievingly.
Bill tells Justin that Katie, Liam and Steffy found out about his plan. Justin says this is bad and sighs heavily. Bill nods his head and says that his wife, his son and Steffy want nothing to do with him. Justin asks if he blames them. Bill says no. He says he tried to save Liams marriage but instead he ruined it. Justin asks so what now and Bill says he has to find some way out of this because hes not going to lose his family.
Ridge asks Brooke if Liam and Steffy are breaking up. Brooke says she doesnt know and that she was talking to Hope when Liam showed up. Taylor enters and tells Ridge she and Thomas were just about to go see Steffy after a bite to eat and were wondering if hed like to tag along. Ridge says they might want to hold up on that because something seems to be going on here. They all look at Brooke and Brooke tells them how Steffy and Liam might be ending their marriage. Taylor is shocked and Thomas says no way. Ridge asks Brooke if she wants to tell them how this came about and sounds very cynical.
Justin maps out how Katie found out by saying she must have taken the MRI from Allisons desk. Bill confirms that she took it to the doctor and found out that the brain in the scan wasnt Steffys. He tells Justin that his whole family is looking at him like a criminal and he has to find a way to make it right.
Steffy goes over to Liam and says he has to know that she would never do something like this. Liam says so all the blame goes to his father then, okay. Steffy says that she doesnt want him blaming his father. Liam gets frustrated and asks why not. Why doesnt she want that if what she is saying is true?
Steffy says because Bill is the only parent Liam has left. She says shes furious with Bill but Liam has to know that he did what he did to try and help. She says this is who Bill is, he does what he feels he needs to without even realizing it. Hope asks Steffy why she is defending Bill. Liam adds in that Steffy and his father have a history of lies and manipulations and asks her to be honest and just tell him this is another chapter in that history. He says this is just like Aspen and turns away from Steffy.
Steffy says that he doesnt believe her. She says that after everything that happened in Mexico that is why his dad probably took such desperate measures. Steffy says Liam doesnt want to change his story but they were both victims here. Liam asks Steffy how many times he believed her in the past when he shouldnt have. Steffy says maybe she didnt deserve forgiveness in the past but she does now because she knows she did nothing wrong. She says she didnt agree to anything Bill did. Steffy asks Hope if she really wants to end her marriage over something she didnt do. Steffy begs Liam to believe her. Liam tells Hope they need some answers and leaves with her.
Ridge asks Brooke if shes sure about this. Brooke says that is what happened in front of her. Thomas asks if the fact that Steffys condition is critical meant nothing to Liam. Brooke says Liam said that Steffy was fine and so did Steffy. Ridge and Taylor say that Steffy has a blood clot in her brain and any stress could cause a stroke. Steffy enters and says she wont.
Taylor and Ridge hug Steffy and ask her if shes okay. Steffy says shes fine and Ridge says they are not letting her out of their sight. Thomas hugs his sister and tells her he missed her and Steffy hugs him back before saying shes really fine. She tells them that her blood clot is gone. Taylor says it takes more time for that to happen but Steffy says that is what the MRI says. Taylor and Ridge become elated with joy and hug their daughter overjoyed with the news. Pulling away, Taylor asks Steffy if there is a problem with Liam and her. Ridge asks Steffy
Liam enters Bills office with Hope and tells him he wants the full story. Liam says he wants the whole truth. Bill tells him he knew he was going to leave Steffy in Mexico. Liam says that doesnt justify what he did. Bill asks what he was supposed to do then when he thought his son was going to make the biggest mistake of his life, just sit back and do nothing? Liam says he is not his puppet.
He says that its not his right. He asks his dad what he did and if he bribed the doctors. Bill says he made a generous contribution to the hospital. When he calls Liam son he tells him not to call him like that because he doesnt feel like his son right now and feels like a chess pawn instead. He asks his dad if Steffy is in on this or not.
Steffy explains that Liam is upset with her. Taylor asks what happened. Steffy says a misunderstanding. Ridge asks what kind and Steffy says it all goes back to Mexico. Thomas says that what happened in Mexico was that Liam couldnt keep his hands off Hope. Steffy says its a little more complicated than that. Thomas asks how she can defend him after him stringing her along and Hope too. Ridge asks Steffy where things stand now. She says shes not giving up on her marriage.
Ridge asks if she wants him to talk to Liam. Steffy says no and says he is not the bad guy in this. Ridge asks who is then and Steffy says her and Thomas partially because they did some things they should not have done. Ridge puts Steffy on the spot by asking if Bill Spencer is involved in this.
Steffy says she doesnt want to talk about her father-in-law. Ridge says hell take that as a yes and asks if she knows where Liam is now. Brooke asks if hes with Hope and Steffy says yes they both went to see Bill. Steffy says she wants them to know she is okay physically and mentally she says, she loves Liam and she knows he loves her. She says they will get through this and leaves but Brooke doesnt look so sure.
Liam asks his dad to answer him if Steffy was involved or not. Bill says that she had nothing to do with it. Hope asks if they are just supposed to take his word on that. Bill again says that she wasnt involved. Liam asks why he did it. Bill says when he sees a problem he just has to act, thats who he is. Liam asks what happens when he hurts people and if that is just collateral damage.
Bill says he doesnt always think about that. Hope says he is an arrogant man but Bill just says he is. He says its a by-product of his success. Liam says he wasnt very successful this time and Bill says he knows that and regrets it. Hope says she hopes he is not asking for forgiveness because she is not in a forgiving mood. Hope berates him about what he did to Liam, Taylor, Ridge and Steffy and her. She says he hates her but Bill says he respects her. Hope says she doesnt want to be fed lies but Bill says he will make it up to her. Hope disagrees and arrogantly says she will not be bought by him.
Ridge says he cant believe Steffy is okay. Taylor says its nothing short than a miracle. Thomas says that now all they have to do is get Liam and Steffys marriage back on track. Taylor says Steffy said it was just a misunderstanding so she is confidently theyll work it out. Brooke chimes in and says she doesnt think that will work, unable to keep happiness out of her voice.
Ridge sternly says they dont know that for sure. Brooke says the way Liam rushed over to see Hope says that but Taylor says it sounds to her like Liam and Steffy had an argument and he overreacted. Brooke says no, it was a really romantic moment between Liam and Hope. Taylor rolls her eyes. Brooke sys she really wouldnt be surprised if Hope and Liam became committed to one another again.
Liam tells his father he went too far and he cant treat his family like a business deal. Bill says he knows that and says he is still learning. He asks Liam if he will help him. Hope asks how exactly he wants them to do that. He says by keeping this quiet and Hope asks if hes kidding her. She asks why would she do anything for him after all the pain he caused her. Bill says he was wrong and says she can have anything she wants to make up for this.
Hope says she wants his respect, his support and his son. Bill falls silent and Liam asks how he can help him. Bill asks for forgiveness but Liam says hes not sure he can do that. Bill says he tried to treat this like a business deal but now he knows that being a father is not like being a CEO. He says he really did think he was doing the best thing for Liam though.
Liam says he manipulated him. Bill says he was wrong. He says this cant be a deal breaker though. Liam shouts that his relationship with him shouldnt be a deal and says why cant he just be his dad. Bill says he is and he is there for him in more ways that his dad ever was. Liam falls silent when Bill says maybe hes overcompensating for his own father never being there.
Steffy walks in and asks Bill if he told them she had nothing to do with this. Bill says he did and she asks if they believe him because based on the way they are looking at her it doesnt look like it. Bill says that Steffy had nothing to do with this. He says if Liam wants to hate anyone, hate him but not Steffy because she had nothing to do with this.
He turns to Hope and says that he wont interfere in this marriage anymore and neither should she. He tells Liam that he has two wonderful women here and its an honor to have both their affections but he is married to only one of them. Bill implores Liam to not end his marriage over this and tells him to do the right thing and stay with his wife. Liam looks overwhelmed and confused while Steffy looks at him with tears falling out of her eyes.
