The Bold and the Beautiful: Hope Pushes a Pregnant Steffy!
Last week, on cliffhanger Friday, the action in the Hope, Liam and Steffy triangle escalated another notch.
Much to everyone’s surprise learning how she was deceived by Bill, Rick, Deacon and Othello has give Hope a new level of confidence and maturity. She’s not a little girl anymore and she’s not going to be pushed around - in fact, quite the opposite.
Liam asked Steffy to move out
Steffy returned from Paris ready to tell Liam about their baby that she is carrying, only to discover that encouraging Liam to spend time with Hope (to get her out of his system) while she was gone, had backfired.
Hope requested that Liam ask Steffy to move out of the Malibu cliff house to level the playing field which Liam, yet again, decided which of the lovely ladies he wanted to be his partner in life. And, possibly partly due to a kite display that Brooke organized, to remind Liam of his and Hope’s Italian wedding, Liam did just that devastating Steffy.
Will Steffy lose her baby after having a serious motorcycle accident?
Hope gloats, Steffy rants
This turn of events did little to improve relations between Hope and Steffy. Hope turned up in Steffy’s office with no clear objective except to gloat about Steffy’s altered living arrangements. Steffy became angry and resorted to Logan bashing, as Taylor, Steffy and Thomas have taken to of late. Resentments from a childhood where Steffy’s father, Ridge, left her mother, Taylor, for Brooke, umpteen times fueled the tirade.
Hope became angrier and angrier telling Steffy her mother had nothing to do with their current situation and to leave her family out of it. But Steffy continued. Hope’s fists balled as her temper soared and finally she snapped.
Hope pushed Steffy. Steffy stumbled backwards twisting around and landing on her desk. Her stomach took the full impact and Steffy, with a horrified look on her face fell to the floor clutching her stomach in a gesture to protect her baby.

Do you think Steffy will ultimately lose her and Liam's baby?
Does Hope cause Steffy to miscarry? (Warning! Spoilers and Speculation)
Cliffhanger Friday planted the seed that Hope’s flash of temper could cause Steffy to miscarry. Steffy may miscarry this child sometime in the future, but our speculation is not yet.
We haven’t had the big reveal to Liam. Before Steffy and Liam have to deal with the emotions of potentially losing a baby there are too many other twists to play along the way.
Steffy has once again chosen to keep the truth from Liam. Steffy knew about Bill’s involvement in sabotaging Hope and Liam’s Italian wedding but chose not to tell him. Taking so long to tell Liam he was about to be a father reeks of the same behavior. No matter how many altruistic motivations she places on it (I don’t want Liam to be with me just because we have a child), Steffy has chosen once again to conceal the truth from Liam. There’s a good week of storytelling in that alone.
Spoilers also indicate that in future weeks Steffy hears her baby’s heartbeat for the first time and will rushes to stop Liam marrying Hope before he knows about their baby. So we think baby STEAM is safe – for now.
