In Liam’s hotel room, Steffy presses him to come home, for her and the baby. She thanks him again for convincing Bill to see the truth about Ridge – her father isn’t a monster. Steffy goes on that when she arrived, it seemed he and Hope were hiding something. She wants to know what’s going on. Liam paces and Steffy tells him she wants them to be honest with each other – it kills her that she hurt him. She suggests this time apart isn’t helping and they should move forward. Liam agrees that time won’t help and they should move on – he thinks Steffy should do so with his father. Steffy is bewildered as to why he’s saying this. Liam flashes to Hope saying Steffy will eventually give in to Bill. Steffy observes this doesn’t sound like him – did Hope fill his head with this? She doesn’t want Bill, and urges Liam not to listen to Hope – she doesn’t know what they share – and pleads with him not to give up on them. Once alone, Liam recalls his kisses with Steffy and Hope and agonizes.
