Baker eyeballs Bill B&B

Howard Wise/JPI

At Spencer Publications, Baker grills Liam about how angry he must have been about the paternity switch and asks, “Did you do it, Liam? Did you kill Vincent Walker?” Bill exclaims that his son is innocent as Liam remains silent. Baker demands of Liam, “Is that true?” He wants him to confirm he had nothing to do with Vinny’s death. Bill takes over the questioning and asks if Liam got in his car and hunted Vinny down. Liam says, “No.” Bill asks if he wanted Vinny dead. Liam again answers, “No.” Baker takes in the scene and tells them to contact him if they think of anything that might help the investigation.

After Baker’s gone, a freaked out Liam mutters to Bill, “He’ll be back. You know he will.” Bill warns Liam not to let Baker get in his head. Liam stammers that Hope wants him home but he can’t go back to being who he was. Bill intones that being with Steffy was a mistake but the other was an accident. He urges him to pick up the pieces and go on. “You can do it, Liam.” He warns his son that he can’t crack. Liam knows he’s right; he can’t bring that darkness into the home where his children live or let Hope get suspicious. “I just hope nothing takes them away from me permanently.”
