The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Bill (Don Diamont) wasn’t being totally honest when he returned to his family’s company. Yes, all that he said about his own father, not wanting to hurt Liam (Scott Clifton) and being grateful for Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was true. At the same time, Dollar Bill still calls his own ballgame.
Bill told Justin (Aaron Spears) to have the building Spectra Fashions was operating in torched. That arson plan was later foolishly admitted to Liam, who recorded the conversation. Liam used that leverage to temporarily force his father out of Spencer Publications.
The brutal battle that ensued between father and son included Bill punching Liam in the face and vowing to crush him. Bill kept working and in a relatively short period of time had Liam’s original recording captured (by Justin) and all other copies erased (by Ken, Danny Woodburn).
The projected explosion at the building Sally (Courtney Hope) now owns reveals what Bill is actually doing. He wanted that specific property and his second attempt at destroying it will open the location for Sky to be built after all.
Bill didn’t cover his tracks the first time, but he learned from that experience. Of course he’d anticipate that people would suspect his involvement in this secondary action.
The amount of time, energy and most importantly (to Bill) money that was invested in planning for Sky’s rise in the Los Angeles skyline was too great. Bill was never going to allow anything to prevent his legacy building from existing.
When faced with an unexpected setback, Bill simply recalculated. What better way to do so then to try something new, honesty. And again, he was honest, to a certain degree in forgiving Liam. He’s since elevated him and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) to higher and equal positions.
It appears as though Bill has reformed and that he’s learned from his mistakes. The head of the Spencer clan has agreed to review Liam’s corporate changes and will likely leave them in place. Why not? Doing so, while also working off-book to ensure that Sky was built would make Bill seem less suspicious, or actually innocent.
At this point Bill has succeeded in regaining Liam’s trust. Bill has made Steffy believe that she was the reason he gained a new perspective. Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) hand might be won again through this seemingly demonstrated character change as well. Yet underneath it all there remains the one and only Dollar Bill.
