Steffy and Liam spend time together, Hope chats with Eric, and Brooke reassures Hope.
At Liam's house, Steffy tells him he's cutting it close - their marriage expires at midnight - or not. They pour wine, and Steffy asks what he has to tell her. Liam tells her that before she arrived, he was sitting and thinking about all the fun they've had. They flirt and banter. He notices she's still wearing his ring. She asks again if this is the end, or a new beginning. Liam compliments her on how confident she is now. She reminds him she'll hear wedding bells at midnight, and says she knows he's torn. Steffy also reminds him she vowed not to step foot in the house again unless it was as his wife. She asks, "Is that why I'm here? After midnight, will I still be your wife?"
At Forrester, Ridge and Brooke bicker over what Liam will do. Brooke tells him Eric has agreed to design Hope's wedding gown. She wonders if Ridge will be able to walk Hope down the aisle and give her away - she's been talking about reaching out to Deacon. Ridge says he will do it. Brooke decides to go see Hope. Taylor arrives, with Stephanie right behind her. Speculation ensues about why Liam called Steffy over to his house. Ridge paces, saying he wants the best for both his daughters. Taylor says one will be heartbroken, there's no way around it. Stephanie thinks Liam would be nuts to let Steffy go. She also thinks Aspen was a game-changer.
In Hope's office, Eric notes how many times Hope has checked the time. Hope says she hopes she's not putting him in a tough position by getting him to do her dress - Stephanie's not going to like it. She says she wishes Ridge could have done it, but his feelings are to be expected since she's not his real daughter. Hope brings up Deacon Sharpe, and how awkward it would be for Ridge to walk her down the aisle. She says she understands now that Steffy really loved Liam, and made him happy, but not as happy as she will. She giggles and tells him she can't wait to marry him in an Eric Forrester original. Eric is sure Ridge will come through for Hope. Later, Brooke stops in on Hope to reassure her that everything will be fine and the wedding in Italy will be beautiful. They discuss Ridge and Steffy. Hope says she isn't sure why Steffy's been so confident, but she's not worried; she and Liam are the happiest they've ever been.
