Katie Declines Bill’s Marriage Proposal
Thursday April 25, 2019: On Bold and the Beautiful today, Shauna looks forward to Flo's new prospects, Zoe's horrified to learn Flo's a Logan, and Shauna runs into Bill.
At Spencer Publications, Katie wants to know why Bill asked her to come by. Bill knows he lost his way for a while but has an idea that will reassure Will about the future in a way nothing else will. Katie asks, “Okay, what’s the idea?” Bill expands that what a boy Will’s age wants most is his mom and dad together. Katie thinks he has both of them as well as a huge family. Bill will never let their son down again. Katie believes him. They laugh as Bill reveals he’s on seven eligible bachelor lists, though he’s not sure he’s such a great catch. Katie reassures him and they discuss their history. Katie quips that they do divorce well. Bill suddenly stuns her by pulling out an engagement ring and proposing. He asks, “Will you do me the honor of marrying me again?” Bill tells her he loves her, and she makes him happy. Katie tears up – he has no idea what it means to hear that he loves her – he stopped saying it once. She worries about disappointing Will if they can’t make it work. Bill insists she can trust him. Katie recalls how much it hurt when he left her for her sister. She thanks him for his words, but she can’t give him the answer he wants.
At Forrester Creations, Brooke recalls that Zoe introduced Flo to Hope and imparts the news that Flo turned out to be a Logan. Zoe blurts, “She can’t be.” Brooke wonders what she has against Flo. Zoe notes all she and Hope have in common is missing a child. Brooke says they also share DNA and asks Zoe if she knows something about Flo. Zoe warns about people taking advantage. Brooke’s unconcerned and feels Hope needs a friend right now. Zoe exits and looks horrified. Later, Katie arrives and announces that Bill proposed. Brooke thinks it’s wonderful, but Katie relays that she said ‘no’.
At Flo’s place, Shauna wonders what Brooke’s house is worth and tells Flo that being a member of the Logan family will really change her life. Shauna then tells Flo what a charming gentleman her father Storm was when they’re together. Flo wonders why they didn’t stay together. Shauna says he wanted a simple life and a family, but felt those things were for someone else. She feels he would have been so proud of his beautiful daughter. Shauna leaves and Zoe arrives to confront Flo about being a Logan. She says if her new family knew her secret, they’d hate her. Flo argues they might forgive her for Storm’s sake. Zoe disagrees and asks what she’s going to do. She barks, “Tell me!”
Shauna runs into Bill at Il Giardino. He tells her she looks good and they reflect on ‘almost being parents’. Bill muses he would have bought her daughter a house – it’s what he does. Shauna doesn’t think he’s so bad.
Donna and Brooke urge Katie to give Bill another chance.
