RECAPS – 9/4-7
THE BOLD AND THE BEAU. TIFUL . Bill had a difficult time containing his gratification regarding the final demise of Liam and Hope’s relationship. Thomas realized that Rick was attempting to redirect his attentions towards Hope, yet agreed that she deserved a man who would give her his undivided attention. Hope called a press conference to announce that she is putting an end to her Perfect Wedding collections AND her relationship with Liam. During the press conference, Rick hijacked Hope’s announcement with a shocking announcement of his own. Thomas’ stunt left tongues wagging by the press and tempers flaring by Liam and Caroline. Katie and Bill expressed polar opposite opinions while trying to give Liam advice about how to address Hope about what he saw happen at the press conference. Furious at Thomas for his stunt, Caroline turned to Rick for comfort… just as he had hoped. Thomas’ heartfelt confession to Hope was abruptly interrupted. Brooke and Ridge received a gift from Stephanie that they have been waiting for decades — her blessing on their impending nuptials. Steffy refused to adhere to Katie’s stern warning to stay away from Hope and Liam while they were working on their relationship. Despite Hope’s advisement of him to move on with his life, Liam made a final plea to Hope to give their relationship another chance.
THIS WEEK: Bill continues to manipulate Liam to choose Steffy instead of Hope.
