At the Malibu house, Wyatt stands by as Liam tells Hope he understands how Steffy feels about an annulment. Hope says what Steffy wants takes precedent again - she won't accept it. Hope insists that if Liam wants to marry her, he'll go to Paris and convince Steffy that she's wrong. Wyatt nibbles a snack as they bicker. Hope gripes that Steffy is controlling them from across the world. Liam suggests Hope move in. Hope nixes the idea. Liam gets a call and has to go to work. Wyatt tells Hope he thinks it's crazy that Liam won't go to bat for them. Hope snaps that it's always been that way. She wonders if Steffy's stalling and will maybe come back. She honestly doesn't know what Liam would do if she returned. Wyatt says he believes if a man wants something, he goes after it. He tells her that his half-brother accepted him into his house and all he wants to do is hit on his girl. But she's not his girl...not for six months and maybe never. He moves in close.
