Begging For Crumbs.Tuesday, August 21 2012
Hope sends Liam packing, Bill confronts his son, and Hope drops in on Steffy.
At the Forrester mansion, everyone looks on as Liam begs Hope to marry him. Bill mutters, "Liam, what the hell are you doing?" Hope says his 'mistakes' keep happening and he has no respect for her, otherwise he wouldn't have been with Steffy! Everyone murmurs. Liam still wants to get married. Ridge turns him to the mirror. "Is this how a man in love shows up to his wedding?" Rick tells Liam it's time to go. Liam won't leave until Hope comes downstairs. She does. Liam bows down in front of her and pledges to be whoever she wants him to be. She says he doesn't deserve her. After Liam goes, everyone hovers around Hope. Marcus indicates Liam is outside. Katie walks out. Bill follows. Stephanie tells Hope she made the right decision. Brooke tells Hope it doesn't have to be the end.
At Forrester Creations, Steffy reassures Taylor that she won't fall apart over Liam marrying Hope. Steffy talks about her lack of ambition recently and wonders what her next big thing will be.
Katie finds Liam in the guesthouse and tells him about his disrespect and attitude - he's pitting two women and their families against each other and needs to check himself! She tells Bill she'll get a ride with Brooke and goes. Liam tells Bill he'll keep trying to get Hope back. Bill growls, "No son of mine is going to go begging for crumbs!" Bill tells him he was revolted by him earlier. Liam says Bill's wounded pride isn't his problem. They argue heatedly. Bill mocks him for what he's allowed Hope to put him through in front of the world. Bill tells him to love himself. Liam shouts that he doesn't want to be arrogant like Bill! Bill starts shoving Liam around to make his point that he won't fight back - he's let Hope humiliate him and walk all over him. Liam takes a swing at him. Bill gets him in a chokehold and tells him he's a Spencer - they don't beg, they take. "No one judges us!" Liam says he hears him and cries. They hug.
Katie returns to the Forrester mansion and rejoins Hope and Brooke to discuss the situation. Brooke wonders if what Hope saw and felt today was exactly what Steffy wanted.
Steffy is on the phone sending flowers to the wedding when Hope appears in her office. Hope tells her she should be dancing at her wedding reception, but there was no wedding. "Isn't that what you wanted?"
