The Bold and the Beautiful: Did Liam Sleep with Steffy on his Wedding Day to Hope?
Liam and Hope Married - Eventually
Though Liam and Hope’s wedding day didn’t go exactly to plan they did eventually marry. And Hope hasn’t stopped gushing about how happy she is or how she wouldn’t change a thing about their messed up wedding day to realize that Liam appears to be sporting a case of guilt as big as his father’s (Dollar Bill Spencer) ego.
What is the source of Liam’s guilt though? Did he really sleep with Steffy when he thought Hope left him – again? On his wedding day? In the bed that was to be his marital bed?
It seems The Bold and the Beautiful writers sure want us to think so. And it would continue the drama of the Hope, Liam and Steffy triangle nicely…
Hope Left Liam – Again?
When Hope was late getting to the church, Liam eventually went looking for her back at the hotel where Ridge had left Hope getting ready. Liam was, of course, unaware that Hope was doing her damndest to get to Liam and the church after receiving a surprise visit from Deacon Sharpe, her biological father. A visit orchestrated by Bill Spencer to delay the bride and sabotage his son’s wedding.
Bill had made it clear he didn’t approve of Hope as Liam’s wife and was hoping Liam would see the error in his ways and return to Steffy, who Bill favored as Liam’s wife over Hope.
Liam found a note in his hotel room saying “I love you but I can’t do this, I’m sorry.” An emotional Liam couldn’t believe Hope had done this to him again. Leaving him without explanation. Perhaps Bill had been right all along an emotional Liam supposed. And like he did when he found Hope’s engagement ring on the mantle at the Malibu beach house he turned to Steffy for comfort.
And Liam turns immediately to Steffy
When Hope broke her engagement to Liam, Liam used Hope’s ring to propose to Steffy that very night. They were married mere days later. Liam has already been portrayed as fickle - but would he really sleep with his ex-wife on his wedding day?
Steffy arrived at Liam’s Italy hotel room in time (after a phone call from Bill telling her that Hope was a no show at the church) to comfort her ex-husband. Comfort turned to kissing and protestations of love on Liam’s part.
Did Liam Sleep wth Steffy on his and Hope's Wedding Day?
Hope shows up at the hotel!
A slightly disheveled Hope made her way to the church then back to the hotel when she learned that Liam had gone looking for her.
Why was Hope still in her wedding dress Liam asked, the jacket and tie from his wedding suit now gone and his shirt untucked. Hope learned about the note and quickly explained to Liam that her father – Deacon has written the note – not her! She also apologized that her focus on her reunion with her long lost biological father had made her late for her wedding.
“You have nothing to be sorry about” uttered a shocked looking Liam.
All a disbelieving Liam could do was repeat over and over that he thought Hope had left him as Hope gushed about her reunion and continuing with their wedding anyway.
“A lot has happened today…I thought you left me. I thought we were done.” Liam stated stunned.
What Hope didn’t seem to notice Liam’s distress/guilt, or the rumpled bed in the hotel room. The pillows and blankets on the bed were as unkempt as Liam’s wedding attire…all that was missing was Steffy.
Hope and Liam reschedule the wedding ceremony
Hope decided they would go ahead with the ceremony at their original location, misunderstanding Liam when he said he couldn’t go back to the church.
“I don’t think I can do this.Go back up to that church again.Not now.I don’t think I can do it.” Was all Liam could say to Hope’s plan to have their wedding ceremony anyway.
Hope appeared to misunderstand Liam’s hesitation at going back to the church and decided they would marry at their original location instead – on the bluff overlooking the Adriatic.
“Everything is not the same as it was before.Everything has changed.”Liam tried to tell Hope.
But before Liam could gather his thoughts Hope left to go straighten herself up and told Liam to get back in his suit.
Steffy emerges from the bathroom
Once Hope is gone, all a flabbergasted and seemingly guilt ridden Liam can do is stare as a tearful Steffy emerges from the bathroom, having overheard the entire exchange between Hope and Liam.
So did Liam sleep with Steffy?
Listening to Liam’s dialogue to Hope we are clearly supposed to believe that something big happened in the time that Liam thought Hope had left him. And that clearly involved Steffy.
But was it Liam just realizing that he wasn’t over Steffy and still in love with her? Or did he actually seek and receive comfort of a sexual nature in his ex-wife’s arms?
Liam’s expression of guilt and the words he spoke seem a little dramatic for a man who has simply realized his feeling for his ex-wife run deeper than he thought. Add to that the unmade bed in the background while Hope and Liam had their discussion and just maybe the secret Liam is keeping from Hope is that he slept with Steffy on his and Hope’s wedding day…
And did anyone notice that Liam and Hope moved into Brooke and Ridge’s suite once they left Italy? Could the guilt of bedding his wife in a soiled marital bed have been too much for sensitive Liam?
The Bold and the Beautiful is fond of placing red herrings in their storylines and this could simply be one of them. But infidelity on his wedding day would certainly add new conflict into to the Steffy, Liam and Hope love triangle, especially if Steffy conceives!
