Katie & Wy­att Broke Up!

Hav­ing kept their ro­mance largely un­der wraps, Katie and Wy­att both felt it would be a dis­as­ter were Bill to find out about their canoodling. Thorne re­turned to town and made a play for Brooke… de­spite her en­gage­ment to Ridge. Dur­ing Brooke and Ridge’s wed­ding, Thorne sur­prised Katie by plant­ing a kiss on her! Spy­ing the smooch from across the canyon, Wy­att dumped his girl­friend when she got back from the wed­ding, but it was only a hot minute be­fore they re­unit- ed, and he pro­posed! Bill flipped his lid when he learned of their en­gage­ment, and rather than in­cur his wrath (which would in­clude dis­in­her­it­ing Wy­att and su­ing for cus­tody of Will), the love­birds elected to pre­tend their re­la­tion­ship was over. Soon enough, their se­cret af­fair re­ally did hit the skids. Re­al­iz­ing Will would never ac­cept his half brother as his new step­daddy, Wy­att and Katie elected to go their sep­a­rate ways, leav­ing the door wide open for Thorne to of­fer him­self to Katie as a suitable al­ter­na­tive.

Hope Re­claimed Liam!

Hope re­turned for her mom’s lat­est wed­ding and de­cided to stick around town to re­launch the Hope For The Fu­ture line. Though she was wist­ful about see­ing for­mer beau Liam, she did her best to re­spect the fact that he was now mar­ried to St­effy. When St­effy turned up preg­nant, Liam was elated… un­til he re­al­ized she’d had a pa­ter­nity test run! Full of an­guish, she con­fessed that she’d slept with Bill on the one night that she’d mis­tak­enly be­lieved her mar­riage to be ka­put. Though Liam was in­deed the daddy, he holed him­self up in a bland ho­tel and re­con­nected with Hope. Al­though Liam waf­fled be­tween the women for a while, he even­tu­ally opted to re­main in his mar­riage. But after Bill made it look as if he and Stef fy had shared an­other en­counter, Liam jumped first to the wrong con­clu­sion and then into bed — and an in­stant

en­gage­ment — with Hope! Liam and Hope’s wed­ding cer­e­mony came to a screech­ing halt when best man Wy­att came clean and re­ported that St­effy’s “be­trayal” was an­other one of Bill’s tricks. The bir th of Stef fy’s child brought about yet an­other change of heart for Liam, but his plan to re­marry St­effy hit the skids when Hope an­nounced that she, too, was preg­nant! Sick of fight­ing for Liam’s heart, St­effy ba­si­cally handed Liam over to Hope. Liam and Hope wed (for real this time) in a cer­e­mony that cul­mi­nated in a cake fight be­tween Brooke and Tay­lor, who felt her daugh­ter had got­ten shor t shrift! No longer bat­tling over a man, Hope and St­effy in­stead fought over their fash­ion lines when Ridge threw money at his daugh­ter’s In­ti­mates line while scal­ing back Hope For The Fu­ture’s bud­get.

Bill Was Shot By Tay­lor!

Though Bill was cer­tain he and St­effy were des­tined to be to­gether, he also had an en­e­mies list a mile long of peo­ple who might want him dead. That list in­cluded Ridge ( who be­lieved Bill had taken ad­van­tage of St­effy), Sally ( who felt he’d de­stroyed her ca­reer), Thomas (who was fu­ri­ous that Bill had in­structed Caro­line to fake a fa­tal ill­ness) and even his good pal, Justin (who seemed to have am­bi­tions to sup­plant his boss). One dark and stormy night, Bill was shot in the back in his own home by an un­known as­sailant. No one knew who the cul­prit was, though De­tec­tive Sanchez had plenty of sus­pects… in­clud­ing Liam, who had ev­ery rea­son to want his fa­ther dead. In­deed, Liam wor­ried that he might have done the deed while suf­fer­ing from a tem­po­rary bout of am­ne­sia, but it was Ridge who took the fall and landed in prison after Bill swore his neme­sis had pulled the trig­ger. Bill and St­effy even­tu­ally dis­cov­ered that an un­hinged Tay­lor was re­spon­si­ble for shoot­ing him. Bill agreed to keep mum

— but only if St­effy agreed to have a life with him! After Bill con­vinced St­effy that Liam would al­ways love Hope (a fact St­effy ended up wit­ness­ing with her own eyes fol­low­ing the Hope For The Fu­ture fash­ion show), she grudg­ingly ac­cepted Bill’s pro­posal, with the caveat that he hand over all his shares of For­rester Cre­ations. Later, she re­neged on this prom­ise, but Bill al­lowed her to keep the shares. All this time swoon­ing over St­effy had cost Bill some­thing very im­por­tant: his re­la­tion­ship with his youngest son, Will. Sick of Bill blow­ing off their lit­tle boy, Katie — with the en­cour­age­ment of new hubby Thorne — sued for full cus­tody and won. Brooke sup­ported Bill dur­ing this lit­i­ga­tion, and when she dis­cov­ered that Ridge had se­cretly in­flu­enced the judge, it only drew her closer to her ex. A tus­sle be­tween Bill, Ridge and Thorne landed Will’s fa­ther back in the hos­pi­tal after he went fly­ing over the bal­cony at his man­sion!

Sally Got A Fresh Start!

Sally was fu­ri­ous when Bill backed out of a busi­ness prom­ise that Liam had made to her. After a ro­man­tic re­union with Thomas, she was fur­ther miffed with Bill when she dis­cov­ered that he was the one re­spon­si­ble for her break-up with the hunk in the first place. She left L. A. to start a new life with Thomas on the East Coast but, within months, re­turned to L.A. — sin­gle again and feel­ing more down and out than ever. While drunk at Bikini Bar she en­coun­tered Wy­att, who en­cour­aged her to crash at his place for the night. After pulling out a gun and shoot­ing at a photo of Bill on his man­tel, Sally re­cov­ered her senses and lost her heart to Wy­att! Good things fol­lowed for the red­head when

she landed a job at For­rester Cre­ations and was ul­ti­mately given a de­sign­ing po­si­tion on St­effy’s In­ti­mates line.

Ro­mances Bloomed

Maya’s cousin, Xan­der, ar­rived in town and im­me­di­ately landed an in­tern­ship at For­rester Cre­ations, where he cap­tured the at­ten­tion of an­other in­tern, Emma, who was Justin’s niece. Xan­der kept his Bri­tish ac­cent un­der wraps and, when a mys­te­ri­ous cy­ber-stalker started threat­en­ing Hope, di­vulged that it was likely his crazy ex- girl­friend from Lon­don, Zoe. Sure enough, Zoe was in town spy­ing on Xan­der and Emma when not paint­ing a mu­ral on Wy­att’s wall. Zoe stole Emma’s thun­der at the Hope For The Fu­ture fash­ion show by sneak­ing in and mod­el­ing the show­stop­per, a move that landed her an of­fer to model for the de­sign house! Xan­der, too, got pro­moted to model for the In­ti­mates line. This only suc­ceeded in mak­ing Xan­der and Zoe quite chummy, much to Emma’s dis­may! Mean­while, Char­lie fi­nally pro­posed to Pam. The bride-to-be was taken aback when Quinn re­fused her re­quest to be mar­ried in the liv­ing room of the For­rester man­sion. As ten­sions grew be­tween Eric and Quinn, Donna just hap­pened to re­turn… her ob­vi­ous feel­ings for her for­mer hus­band threat­en­ing to bring out his wife’s dark side!

“Mov­ing in? No, Wy­att, I said I’m mov­ing on. Way to make this awk­ward!”

“How rude,” thought St­effy. “At least take your dang nuz­zle­fest out­side my of­fice!”

No, these weren’t all the sus­pects. This is sim­ply white­board one of three.

“I must say, you make a rather con­vinc­ing case as to why we should date,” ad­mit­ted Wy­att.

“Who rules the world? No, not girls, silly! In­terns!”
