Liam forgives Bill, Hope and Steffy debate, and Liam reassures Steffy.
In Bill's living room, Liam hollers after Bill stabs himself with the mini-sword. Bill says the pain is nothing compared to what he feels when Liam says he's done with him. He tells Liam the only thing he's guilty of is loving him too much. Liam admits he cares about Bill. He pleads with Liam not to throw away their relationship - all he ever wanted to do was protect him. Liam points out that Hope helped bring them together. Bill tells Liam his life is better now than it was before Italy. Liam doesn't want Bill making his choices. Bill admits to having some of his father's control issues, but tells Liam he needs him. Liam says he can't be like Bill. Bill accepts that and gets him to put the necklace back on. Once they've made up, Bill says, "Don't go back to Hope." Liam gasps, "Really?" They hug painfully and Liam goes. After, Bill has a jeweler over and chooses an expensive necklace for Katie. He pays the man in cash - from a wad of money he had strapped to his chest!
At the Malibu house, Hope explains to Steffy why Liam needed to know what Bill did. She says he wants to take back the life she should have had. Steffy surprises Hope by saying she's glad everything's out in the open. They bicker about Liam going to confront Bill. Steffy reminds Hope this is their home now - Hope can't just walk in and tear that up. Hope argues they wouldn't be together if they hadn't been manipulated. Steffy counters that if she had had more faith in Liam no one could have separated them. Hope says they'll see what happens. Steffy wonders if Hope will still want Liam back next week when he doesn't live up to one of her standards. Hope says things have changed. Steffy knows there's something between them, but they've never gotten it right. She advises Hope to get on with her life. Hope leaves and Liam returns. Steffy told him she suspected Bill did something in Italy. Liam complains about Bill's twisted ways. He recounts how Bill stabbed himself. They marvel over it being bizarre and extreme, and embrace. After, they cuddle up on the couch and Steffy says Hope thinks things have changed. Liam assures Steffy nothing can erase what they share. Steffy tells him she's leaving to meet her dad in Paris tomorrow - she won't be away long. They make love.
At Forrester, Hope thinks about being with Liam in Italy and vows they'll be together again.
