THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL — Thorne’s return to Los Angeles after a lengthy stay in Paris was met with mixed emotions, especially from his elder brother, Ridge. Confused about the sudden change in dynamics within the Spencer family, Wyatt demanded that Bill tell him how his resolution with Liam happened. Attributing his reconciliation with Bill to Steffy, Liam insisted that she escort him to his first day back at Spencer Publications. Undetected tension filled the room between Steffy and Bill as Liam praised them both for his current happiness. Having temporarily moved back into Brooke’s home until he finds a place of his own, Thorne confided in her his frustrations regarding Ridge. Thorne admitted to Brooke why he stayed away for so long and what brought him back to Los Angeles. While at lunch at Il Giardino, Pam was startled to find that Sheila’s her server and even more surprised when she offered an olive branch and a promise. Liam explained to Wyatt his side of the story about how he and Bill reconciled following the Spectra building demolition. Thorne surprised Brooke when he told her about what he has been doing in Paris. Thorne hit the nail on the head with his assumption about why Brooke and Ridge did not get married in Australia: another woman. Brooke confirmed this but did not name the woman in question. Charlie became concerned, for selfish reasons, when he learned about Pam’s interaction with Sheila. Eric was caught off- guard when he’s greeted by Sheila at Il Giardino and learned that she never left town. Sheila offered him a sincere apology about her attempt to come between he and Quinn. Coco questioned Sally’s plan to pay an uninvited visit to Liam knowing that her sister’s presence is controversial. Liam’s overly professed appreciation for their reunion caused great anxiety for Steffy prompting her desire to break her promise with Bill. Upon her arrival at Liam’s house, Sally attempted to get a read on the current state of his and Steffy’s marriage. Steffy and Bill expressed their sincere regrets for betraying Liam and discussed the ramifications they would face if their secret’s revealed. During their already uncomfortable conversation, Sally bluntly asked Liam if he and Steffy are really happy or if their marital bliss is just an act. In return, Liam asked Sally where she thinks they stand in their affiliation with each other.
