Last week on The Bold and the Beautiful, Xander came clean with Emma and others about his stalker ex-girlfriend Zoe, who he believed was the one posting the threats on Hope’s website, only towards Emma. Once confronted, she admitted it was her, but laughed it off as a harmless prank. The Forrester gang ordered her to return to Britain to avoid them pressing charges. While Brooke planted the idea in Liam’s head that Steffy could have feelings for Bill, Bill visited Steffy and proposed to her after warning her that Liam would always be connected to Hope.
