Bad-dad Bill Spencer (Don Di­a­mont) loves play­ing favourites. Since Wy­att is (Darin Brooks) rid­ing high with a happy mar­riage, his tofu-munch­ing brother Liam (Scott Clifton) is given the brushoff by the red-blooded Spencer bulls in the board­room on Fri­day 21 July. Bill has also di­rectly or­dered Liam not to chase after Wy­att’s wife St­effy (Jacque­line MacInnes Wood) for the sake of fam­ily har­mony, so Liam is ap­palled at Bill kiss­ing wife Katie’s (Heather Tom) sis­ter Brooke (Kather­ine Kelly Lang) in his “nap room” on Wed­nes­day 26 July.

Bill is com­pletely un­re­pen­tant when Liam con­fronts him on Thurs­day 27 July. “You’re not the leader you pre­tend to be. You’re not the man we all think you are, you hyp­ocrite,” Liam sneers. “I lis­tened to your big, long speech about fam­ily comes first and mar­riage vows are sa­cred. It was the same day that I found your ‘nap­ping room’.” And he isn’t done: “You’ve been ly­ing to Katie this whole time. Mak­ing her think she’s the prob­lem, mak­ing her think that her fears are ir­ra­tional.” Dis­gusted by Bill’s dou­ble stan­dards, Liam holds up his Spencer sword pen­dant to Bill and tells him, “You don’t live up to this!”

Since Bill clearly has no func­tion­ing con­science, Liam marches off to con­front the weaker link – Brooke – on Fri­day 28 July. He begs her to tell Katie the truth and stop tor­tur­ing her be­cause Katie now be­lieves that she is ei­ther crazy and para­noid, or Bill and Brooke are ly­ing to her face. Liam’s mis­sion be­comes more ur­gent on Mon­day 31 July when a tear­ful Katie rocks up on his doorstep beg­ging for a drink be­cause no­body is telling her the truth. And if Bill and Brooke don’t con­fess on Tues­day 1 Au­gust, Liam will blow them out of the wa­ter. NB! See more on p28.
