Steffy shrugs and says, “Ask Hope.” She explains Hope thinks she should leave Liam and get together with Bill. Ridge is flustered to hear that Hope admitted she’s still in love with Liam. Steffy muses that something’s changed, and adds that Hope wants to spend more time with Liam, working on her line, which makes her uncomfortable. She just doesn’t need Hope interfering. Ridge decides he’ll talk to Brooke and Hope, because Steffy’s marriage is on the line.
