His bid to turn over a new leaf has everyone scratching their heads at bill’s softer side… but that’s before a quite stunning revenge plot falls into his lap!
Hope. Before she can go from verbal to physical, Liam shows up, calming the situation – and sending the deranged doctor packing! Hope prays this incident won’t be repeated – but then Liam stuns her with the news that Taylor shot Bill. clutching her unborn baby tightly, Hope peppers her husband with questions, desperate to know if Taylor could hurt her...
Meanwhile, Steffy’s also desperate for answers as Bill visits her with a warning. Taylor saw him earlier and her off-kilter demeanour left him in doubt that her therapy was working! If not, people may be in grave danger!
One person not feeling at all threatened about seeing Dr Hayes Forrester is her ex-husband Ridge (Thorsten Kaye). He’s surprised to see her but happily indulges her hatred of Bill! She stews over Bill and Hope and how they’ve broken their daughter; Ridge concurs that the man’s despicable and horrible and be stopped as he’s still wreaking carnage!
First, Taylor must deal with Hope. She feels her anger towards her pulsate when she arrives to see Steffy and then overhears her engaged in an argument with Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) over Hope’s role in Liam’s life. Incensed that Brooke thinks that troublemaking Steffy’s a younger version of her deranged mother, Taylor catches Brooke alone, quickly provoking her longtime nemesis into another catfight! The fact that Hope arrives to diffuse the skirmish further antagonises Taylor, but she decides to bide her time before striking out against the pair once again...
Lashing out is something Liam is confident Taylor will get around to – and he passes on to Steffy that Hope knows her mother gunned down his father! Aghast that Liam’s broken her confidence, Steffy castigates him but Liam is stern in his reaction. She mustn’t tell Taylor that Hope knows the truth because that tidbit could be just the shove she needs to assault Hope and the baby!
In her wild, unpredictable state, Taylor is capable of anything and the last thing he wants is for Hope to be in the firing line!
