At the Malibu house, Liam asks Hope if she's sure about Bill's interference. She says he admitted to getting Deacon out of prison to sabotage their wedding - it was all part of Bill's plan to make sure he ended up with Steffy. Liam becomes angry. Hope says she knows what his relationship with Bill means to him, but he needs to be able to defend himself against him. Liam works himself into a lather over Bill's manipulations and leaves.

At home, Bill is asked by Brooke if he's okay. She lets him know she thought the intervention was extreme. He's glad for a woman who is rational. He says he'll lay off the booze for a while for Katie, but he doesn't have a problem. He complains about Katie being oversensitive. Brooke thinks everything will work out. Bill says Liam is going to be furious. Brooke thinks their relationship is important to Liam.

At Forrester, Steffy and Thomas discuss the competition. They talk about Caroline's fall. Thomas thinks hot-headed Uncle Bill had something to do with it. Talk turns to Rick telling Hope the truth. Steffy say Hope will try to get Liam back, but she thinks they're in a place where Hope can't touch. She tells Thomas that Liam punched Rick the other day - maybe Caroline's brain will unscramble and she'll come back to Thomas.

Steffy arrives home to find Hope there. She says Liam knows everything now about Bill's manipulations in Italy. Steffy says she suspected but didn't say anything because she didn't want to hurt Liam's relationship with Bill. Hope says she was robbed of her life, her dignity, and her husband. She still thinks she and Liam will be married one day.

In the car, Liam thinks back on Bill teaching him to be a man. He arrives at Bill's place, where Bill reminds him he came around in Italy and accepted Hope. Liam says he's had it. "Stay out of my life." Liam decides they'll only have a professional relationship. Bill says he'll do better. Liam says his promises don't mean anything. He takes off the sword necklace. Bill says he can't do better if Liam walks away. He claims the sword represents their unbreakable bond. Liam puts it on the table and turns to leave. Bill picks up the tiny sword and plunges it into his own chest!
