The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers tease that Bill’s (Don Diamont) shooting creates an opportunity for the Spencer patriarch to reestablish a relationship with Liam (Scott Clifton). The effort will take months, involve an off-screen trip to Italy, and require both men’s full commitment to permanent change.
B&B has established a deeply intriguing attempted murder mystery. A stream of potential suspects were written toward the golden gun that shot Bill, which allows many characters and the audience to be unable to know for certain ‘Who Done It’?
As the climax to the above referenced storyline was playing out, Liam was nowhere to be found. He, like so many others, hadn’t shown up at his home to have dinner with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).
Liam’s subsequent arrival was joyfully welcomed by his wife and quickly followed by a phone call. News of what happened spurned Leffy’s joint trip to the hospital, where a shaken Katie (Heather Tom) was waiting.
A doctor advised the gathering crowd of Bill’s status and eventually allowed an initial visitor to enter his room. Liam accepted his role and then offered a double reveal when speaking to his unconscious father. By points of logic, Liam’s reaction to Bill’s state and surprising pledge removed him from the suspect list.
Liam promised his dad that he would find the person who shot him. That flow of emotion was not fully unexpected, as Liam is a sensitive soul. His words also underscored that life’s quixotic state, especially within the world of soaps, can often inject fully unanticipated opportunities for progress.
While dialogue during those moments didn’t reference the Spectra Fashions building explosion, Liam is sure to consider and incorporate said situation into his renewed outlook and actions. As B&B fans recall, Bill and Steffy risked their lives in order to locate and then save Liam and Sally (Courtney Hope) last year.
That unexpected crisis paved the way for a temporary truce between father and son. Their later falling out resulted through the Dollar Still outrage. Steffy’s pregnancy, along with Liam’s confirmed paternity status, also served to muddy matters.
The hope (no, not Annika Noelle’s character, wink) is that Liam and Bill, when he’s conscious, will use this situation to forge a more healthy relationship. As savvy readers of this site know, Diamont has flown to Italy to participate in that country’s version of Dancing with the Stars but won’t miss any screen time on B&B. So how this arc plays out and within what time frame, will surely be deeply engaging.
