The Bold and the Beautiful: Steffy Wedding Crashes Hope and Liam’s Elopement
As far as Brooke Logan could see, reminding Liam about his and Hope’s Italian wedding achieved fabulous results. As Steffy arrived home from Paris, Liam was watching a display of flying kites over his home, much like those that flew over Puglia on his wedding day to Hope, orchestrated by Brooke.
Liam went on to ask Steffy to move out of the Malibu home they had shared so that he could have some space to decide who his future would be with, Hope or Steffy.
Brooke plans a room service elopement for Hope and Liam
If a little reminder about Italy could make Liam ask Steffy to move out, imagine what a full blown re-enactment of Hope and Liam’s Italian wedding could achieve. Brooke, with nothing other than work and romance novels to keep her occupied in life, set about planning Hope and Liam’s surprise elopement.
Brooke flew Father Fontana in from Italy to officiate and used some underutilized (?) Forrester Creations staff to set up the re-enactment at Liam’s Malibu cliff house. How lucky is it that Liam’s home is on a cliff overlooking the ocean?
Brooke made just one mistake. She cheaped out on the labor.
Steffy has a change of heart
It one of three things that caused Steffy to change her mind about telling Liam she was pregnant before he made his decision about who to spend the rest of his life with.
1. Taylor had been less than subtle about her opinion that Steffy should use her pregnancy to hold onto Liam, much like she had done with Ridge. Steffy however wasn’t sure, as she didn’t want to live the life her mother lived or have her child live the life she had – watching her father walk out to be with another woman.
2. At her obstetrician’s appointment, Steffy heard her baby’s heart beat for the first time. Clutching an ultrasound photo of her baby, her doc agreed with Taylor – Liam had a right to know he was going to be a father. And the stress wasn’t any good for Steffy or the baby.
3. Pregnancy hormones. Anyone who has ever been pregnant knows hormones will make you flakey.
The other option is that a little of all three contributed. Or that it was actually a phone call she received from Madison – a Forrester Creations employee that was actually the catalyst.
Madison’s loyalty is obviously with Steffy over Brooke or Hope, because Madison filled Steffy in on Brooke’s surprise elopement.
Back at the Malibu Cliff House
Father Fontana and Brooke both gave impassioned speeches about Hope and Liam belonging together. In Father Fontana’s eyes they were still married. It’s not like they were mending something that was broken or fighting their way back to each other. They belonged together.
Hope took her wedding ring from Brooke and told Liam that he had placed it on her finger as a symbol of their love and she had taken it off to prove a point. She was done planning and mapping out their lives she just wanted to live it, Hope told Liam. She gave him the ring to place on her finger…
Taylor and Steffy rush to Liam’s house
Steffy and Taylor wasted no time in getting into Taylor’s snazzy silver sports car and zooming down the freeway to Malibu.
They arrived to find Liam placing a ring on Hope’s finger!
The small wedding party turned in surprise to see Steffy and Taylor standing near the house. You are not getting married today, Steffy told Liam.
Steffy asked to see Liam alone. Hope told Steffy nothing she could say would change what was happening here today.
Realizing she wasn’t going to get her time along with Liam, Steffy leaned in close to Liam’s ear and whispered, “I’m pregnant.”
A stunned Liam turned to look at an expectant Hope.
Has Steffy crashed Hope and Liam’s latest wedding attempt and trumped Brooke’s efforts to re-unite Liam and Hope?
It sure looks like it.
