hope talks to liam about vinny's death bb

Howard Wise/JPI

At Spencer, Bill rants to Wyatt about Thomas pissing him off earlier. Wyatt agrees Thomas deserves to be in jail for what he did to their family but wonders why he was trying to get Bill’s sympathy over Vinny’s death. Bill flips when Wyatt admits Vinny deserved to pay a price for his crimes but he didn’t deserve to be left on the side of the road. “You don’t know what happened,” Bill says. “Neither do you,” Wyatt replies. Bill texts Liam to make sure everything is okay, which leaves Wyatt wondering if the text is about a business deal. Speaking of which, Wyatt asks if Liam plans to show up to work. Bill talks around Wyatt, who questions why Bill’s blood boils every time Vinny’s name is mentioned — and why is Bill telling everyone to put Vinny out of their minds. Wyatt thinks that’s why Bill and Liam have been arguing, but Bill shuts him down and orders no more talk about Vinny! Wyatt tries to make small talk about plumbers and business deals, but Bill looks at a photo of him and Liam and thinks back to warning Liam to stay quiet. Bill says he has something to take care of and leaves. Wyatt screams after him and wonders where he’s going.
