Brother vs brother

Liam and Wy­att re­peat Bold & Beau­ti­ful his­tory as they fight a tug of war over St­effy’s heart.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - BOLD -

Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) is free from his weird am­ne­sia dream­world of play­ing Adam to cuckoo kid­nap­per Quinn’s (Rena Sofer) Eve. And he’s out to re­claim the (cur­rent) love of his life St­effy (Jac­que­line MacInnes Wood). But he’s in for a shock on Fri­day 12 May when St­effy ad­mits that she’s mar­ried. Liam im­me­di­ately or­ders St­effy to “fix it” with an an­nul­ment. And he’s be­side him­self on Mon­day 15 May when St­effy ad­mits that she promised her life to Liam’s brother Wy­att (Darin Brooks). “None of this should have hap­pened!” he yells. “You can’t want to be with my brother, not now that you know the truth. Do you un­der­stand that my whole life was wiped out – every sin­gle mem­ory erased, ex­cept for you?” And when St­effy doesn’t go “Oh, al­right then” and dump Wy­att af­ter Liam grabs and kisses her, it looks like Bold fans are in for a long and bit­ter bat­tle.


Bill (Don Di­a­mont) can see what’s com­ing be­tween his sons and he warns Liam on Tues­day 16 May, “It may not seem fair but you have to re­spect their mar­riage”. Wy­att is as sym­pa­thetic to his brother’s pain as he can be but warns Liam, “It’s done. She loves me and I love her. And we’re all go­ing to have to find a way to just move for­ward.” Liam might not en­joy fight­ing but he in­sists to Wy­att that as far as he’s con­cerned, those vows are worth­less. “The only rea­son you got any­where close to St­effy is be­cause of your lu­natic mother (Quinn), be­cause she held me cap­tive so you could get to­gether. St­effy mar­ried you be­cause she thought that I would never come home. Well, I’m home. And I’m here to take back what’s mine!”


As Liam and Wy­att’s fight con­tin­ues on Wed­nes­day 17 May with more yelling and dirt­ier ac­cu­sa­tions, St­effy feels trapped by her sin­cere vows to Wy­att and her real feel­ings for Liam, both of which are be­ing trashed by the men she loves. Wy­att drags St­effy off to get their wed­ding ring tat­toos on Fri­day 19 May and when Wy­att tells his wife, “I know your com­mit­ment to me. We need to lock this puppy down and seal it in ink,” it turns a per­fectly in- char­ac­ter way for St­effy to cel­e­brate get­ting hitched into some­thing more like Wy­att stak­ing his claim on her body. Liam can’t miss it and when he leans in to kiss St­effy’s hand on Mon­day 22 May, he sneer­ingly calls the tat­too “Quinn’s great­est tri­umph”.


We’ve been here be­fore – and not just when Liam and Wy­att fought over who would marry their pre­vi­ous “true love” Hope (Kim Mat­ula) in mid-2015. The boys should take a long, hard look at the For­rester broth­ers whose ri­valry ru­ined ev­ery­thing. Thorne (Win­sor Har­mon) mar­ried his big brother Ridge’s (then Ronn Moss) fi­ancée Caro­line Spencer (Joanna John­son) in 1988, then shot Ridge in the head for rap­ing a passed-out drunk Caro­line. In 1997, Thorne got en­gaged to Ridge’s on-again, offa­gain love Taylor (Hunter Tylo) while Ridge was in jail and he got her to pre­tend that she was car­ry­ing his baby, not Ridge’s. Thorne then had an af­fair with Ridge’s ex-wife Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) in 1999, but Ridge wrecked the pair’s 2001 mar­riage by trick­ing Brooke into ad­mit­ting that Ridge was the real love of her life. If Liam and Wy­att don’t watch out, they’ll also end up work­ing oceans apart just to keep the peace.

Liam (left) is back and he wants what’s his: his brother Wy­att’s new wife St­effy.

The boys’ dad Bill is the last per­son to give mar­i­tal ad­vice.
