Wyatt and Liam Confront Their Father — and Steffy Vows to Make Sheila and Bill Pay
Thursday, January 19, 2023: Today on The Bold and the Beautiful, Wyatt returns to chaos, Sheila interrupts Bill's interaction with his sons, and Steffy tells Hope she'll make Bill and Sheila pay.
At the cliff house, Finn and Steffy remark that the kids will have a fun and safe day planned with Amelia. Finn has to go to work but Steffy teases about going back to bed. They kiss. Inevitably, talk turns to how they can’t believe Sheila is out there… all thanks to Bill. They go over Katie not being able to get through to him. Steffy worries, “We have to snap him out of his involvement with Sheila. But how?”
At Bill’s place, he awakens to Sheila kissing his chest and moans happily. She tells him it was one of the best night’s sleep she’s had in a long time, thanks to him. They kiss. He tells her last night was incredible and he’s never been with someone like her before. Sheila muses, “Someone who truly and unconditionally loves you.” They kiss again.
At the cabin, Liam tells Hope that Bill called in sick to the office again. Hope remarks on him staying home all day with Sheila. Liam can’t understand any of this. Wyatt knocks and enters. “Thank God you’re here.” He came back from his business trip because Liam texted him that Sheila is out, free, and mixed up with their father. Liam explains that’s why he’s been so distant. Hope muses that she’s done something to him. Wyatt gawps, “This can’t be true.” Liam huffs, “Well, unfortunately, it is. All of it.”
Wyatt wonders what Bill has on Steffy and Finn that would make them keep quiet about Sheila. Liam says that’s not important — what’s important is their father’s involvement with Sheila. “He’s lost his way.” Wyatt gawps, “He’s lost his freakin’ mind! We need to do something.” They run down the people who know about this and Hope tells Wyatt that Bill won’t listen to anyone. Liam thinks he and Wyatt need to go over there and put an end to this. Hope asks Liam to be careful since his dad’s not in his right mind and Sheila’s dangerous.
At the cliff house, Steffy and Finn worry that Sheila will feel untouchable. “It’s only a matter of time before she starts this delusional campaign to be part of your family.” Finn vows it will never happen and tells his wife they’ll figure out how to make Sheila pay for her crimes.
At Bill’s place, he’s now dressed, sipping coffee and thinking about Sheila stroking his sword when Wyatt and Liam burst in. Liam informs his father he’s making decisions that are putting his family in danger. Bill shakes his head, “There’s no danger, Liam. That’s the beauty of this. We all move on, and nobody gets hurt.” His sons’ jaws drop. Wyatt exclaims that they are concerned about him. Liam declares that whatever is going on with him and Sheila Carter he has to stop it. “Right here, right now.”
At work, Steffy sits at her desk and flashes back to Sheila showing up at the cliff house in the storm and to Bill’s threats. Hope walks in and apologizes — she wasn’t expecting her to be there today. Steffy tells her to come on in and they discuss the threat of Sheila. They’re shocked that Katie couldn’t get through to Bill. Hope reveals Wyatt and Liam went to see him and will try their best to break the hold Sheila has on him. Steffy learns Wyatt knows that Bill is blackmailing them but not the details. They rant about Bill being manipulated by Sheila, who always manages to land on her feet. Steffy fears this will never be over. Hope can understand why she feels that way. Steffy intones that Sheila may think she’s won, but she hasn’t forgotten who she is, what she’s done, or what Bill threatened to do to her mother. She won’t forget and vows to make them pay.
At Bill’s place, Wyatt tells his father that Liam told him what he did to Steffy and Finn. “What is going on with you?!” Liam says Sheila is a literal threat to them. Bill retorts, “He’s not.” Liam insists she is — she hurts people and will hurt him too. They complain about Bill isolating himself and shutting them out. He’s not even going into the office anymore. “That’s your happy place!” Liam and Wyatt assure their father they want to help him. “We love you.” They’re here for him but not Sheila, that awful horrible person. Wyatt tells Bill, “You don’t have to play her game.” Bill intones, “There’s no game.” Wyatt hollers that of course there is — what other explanation could there be? Sheila appears and says, “Love. I love your father and he loves me.”
Wyatt exclaims, “You’re crazier than I thought!” They tell her to go away. She doesn’t budge. Liam tells his father that he doesn’t love Sheila — he loves them, Will, Katie and Brooke, and money. Sheila complains that Katie and Brooke didn’t love Bill for who he is, unlike her. “He loves me.” Wyatt screams, “Shut up!” Bill tells Wyatt to be quiet. When he walks into their home he will show some respect. With that, he walks over and puts his arm around Sheila. Liam gawps, “Dad, she tried to kill Steffy and Finn. She poisoned Brooke with alcohol. She should be in prison.” Bill says Sheila isn’t going anywhere. She’s staying right there with him in their home. “Sheila is my future.” Sheila cozies up to Bill’s chest and smiles to herself.
