Liam continues to think about Steffy as Bill enters. Liam tells Bill he know why heís here but Bill says he just wants him to be happy and says he can guarantee he wonít be happy with Hope. He tells him that midnight tonight Steffy wonít be his wife no more if he doesnít stop this divorce. He asks him to look him in the eye and tell him thatís what he wants.
Eric asks if there is some way he can help. Brooke asks him to design Hopeís gown and he agrees happily. Brooke thanks him and says whatever he thinks of will be perfect.

Steffy says the fact that her wedding is supposed to end at midnight is something she canít even fathom. Stephanie encourages her by saying he tore up the annulment papers. Taylor though says that she thinks they should be prepared for the worst. Steffy says thatís so rational and when Taylor says thatís her job she says thatís not how her and her grandma are. She says they like to be blissfully irrational to which Stephanie agrees but Taylor asks what if Liam doesnít call. Steffy says then sheíll be really sad but life will go on. Sighing though she says it just wonít be the same without him.
As Liam thinks of Steffy, Ridge pays him a visit. He says that Steffy has had a lot of good times in this home and heís sure Hope has too. Liam says itís a nice house and Ridge cuts to the chase by telling Liam he has to make a decision. He says his entire family is being affected by this and they want an answer now. He tells Liam to get a backbone and choose right now because the time for waiting and deciding is over. He tells him that he has to make a decision as it isnít fair to keep both women hanging.

He tells Steffy he needs to see her now and asks if she can meet him at his house. Steffy says sheíll be right over while smiling brightly but on the other end Liam looks really frustrated and tense.
Steffy hastily gets ready to meet Liam. Stephanie comes in and asks if she heard a scream of joy or pain and Steffy tells her Liam called and asked her to come see him. Smiling, she says that Stephanie was right about everything and that Liam loves her and would call her. Stephanie says whatís not to love making her granddaughter smile. Steffy asks how she looks and Stephanie says beautiful. Steffy says she always has the right thing to say.

She says Ridge may not want to walk her down the isle but Brooke says he will and reminds Hope that she is a daughter to Hope.
