At the cliff house, Steffy and Taylor were dressed for Hope and Liam's wedding. Steffy gave the nanny instructions, and Taylor griped that it was wrong for Steffy to watch Hope steal the man that Steffy loved. Taylor believed that it was cruel and that Hope just wanted to rub Steffy's face in it. Steffy stated that it was about the children, and she didn't want any drama. "You understand?" Steffy asked. Taylor scowled.
At the cabin, Wyatt helped Liam get ready for the wedding. Liam didn't sense a lot of enthusiasm from his brother. Wyatt was happy for Liam and the family he was creating. "But?" Liam asked. Wyatt asked about the other family Liam had made with Steffy and Kelly.
Later, Wyatt expressed shock that Steffy would attend the wedding. Liam thought it was a testament to her character and commitment to a functional family for the kids. Liam said the gesture meant a lot to Hope.
Wyatt helped Liam put on his jacket and said he would have been mad if Liam hadn't asked him to be the best man. Liam replied that there hadn't really been a choice, and Wyatt was Liam's brother and best friend. The men hugged, and Wyatt said it went both ways. Wyatt asked if Liam wanted to have one last walk as a single guy, but Liam said he needed a minute.
Wyatt told Liam that Liam had been caught in an impossible position, but he'd gotten through it. Wyatt admired that Liam had been sensitive to two families. Wyatt respected it and Liam.
At Brooke's house, Brooke, the matron of honor, reported for duty in her bedroom, where Hope was getting ready for her wedding. Brooke said there would be no more surprises -- except one. Brooke opened the bedroom door, and Hope got emotional upon seeing Bridget enter the room.
Donna and Katie arrived, and Bridget helped Hope with her makeup as Katie and Donna scrolled through photos of Logan on Bridget's phone. Brooke was excited to have her daughters in the same room. Donna didn't think anything would stop the wedding. Hoping not, Brooke revealed that they'd have two unpredictable guests.
Katie asked if it had been a good idea to invite Steffy and Taylor. Bridget was shocked the women had accepted. Hope said she and Steffy wanted what was best for their family, and Steffy wouldn't make a scene. Brooke stated that it wasn't Steffy she was worried about.
The Logan women shared a family hug and cooed about it being time to get things started. Brooke said she wanted to have a few words with Liam first, and she took off.
In the kitchen, Pam and Charlie arrived with the cake, and Xander reached to swipe some icing off it. Emma's brow furrowed as she watched Pam cut Xander off and warn him that he'd lose a hand if he tried it again.
Sally was impressed with the floral detail and piping on the cake. She'd never learned to do it well at "the bakery." Pam offered to give Sally a lesson someday, and Charlie murmured that he'd hide the recipes.
In the living room, guests gathered for the wedding. Quinn, Thorne, and Eric were there with Ridge, who was bristling about the wedding being a slap in his daughter's face. Thorne said that Steffy was rising above the feelings Ridge claimed were involved, and Ridge replied that they'd see about it. Eric asked what that meant.
The subject changed to Maya and Rick, who couldn't be there. Thorne said it was too much to fly Lizzy back and forth. Steffy and Taylor arrived, and Ridge greeted them, followed by Eric. Quinn introduced herself to Taylor, and Thorne welcomed Taylor home. The group started talking about Kelly, and Taylor quietly slipped out of the house through the terrace doors.
A short while later, Wyatt entered the main house through the terrace. Sally, Quinn, and Eric greeted him. Nearby, Carter tried to soothe Ridge's anxiety and reminded him that Steffy had ended things with Liam, and Ridge needed to take her at her word for what she wanted. Ridge said Steffy should have just attended the reception. Carter replied that Steffy had Taylor for support. Ridge cynically asked where Taylor was.
Back at the cabin, Taylor entered, and Liam said he was surprised to see her there. Taylor claimed to be surprised to be there. She said Liam and Hope should have been over, especially after he'd had a child with Steffy. Taylor had never worried about Steffy when she'd been with Liam because the two loved and cared for each other. A love like that didn't just disappear, and Taylor was there to make a last plea on behalf of Steffy.
Liam said he understood it wasn't a good day for Taylor. Taylor thought it was a travesty that Steffy was paying for what Bill had done, and Taylor asked how it was fair. Liam said Bill had done a lot of damage. Taylor called it an understatement and said Steffy and Liam would be together if it hadn't been for Bill.
Taylor didn't care if Steffy had called it consensual. Taylor believed Bill had taken advantage, knowing that Steffy had been hurting and vulnerable. As Taylor went on, talking about Bill trying to make it look like the affair had still been going on, Brooke reached the outside of the cabin. Hearing voices, she listened outside the door as Taylor insisted that the wedding wouldn't be happening if Hope wasn't pregnant. Taylor begged Liam not to marry Hope.
Liam replied that he loved Steffy, and it had been a blessing to be her husband. He stated that it was over, and he was marrying Hope that day. When he said he had to go, Brooke rushed away from the door, and as soon as he left, Brooke entered the cabin and said Taylor had nerve.
Taylor wasn't scared to admit that she'd urged Liam to call off the sham wedding, and she said Brooke had to see on some level that it wouldn't be happening if it hadn't been for Bill. Taylor believed Steffy was vulnerable for Bill to ride to the rescue. Brooke wasn't concerned about it that day. Brooke's only concern was that Hope got back the life Steffy and Bill had stolen.
Taylor yelled that it was in the past, and everyone had moved on except for Brooke and Hope. Refusing to argue with Taylor on Hope's wedding day, Brooke ordered Taylor to leave. Taylor replied that she was Steffy's guest. Brooke didn't care and refused to have Taylor's negativity around on Hope and Liam's special day. Brooke yelled that she wanted Taylor gone.
Back at the house, Steffy and Liam encountered each other. Ridge looked on as Liam expressed surprise that she'd actually shown up. Steffy said they had to make an effort if they were serious about the extended family. Steffy stated that Hope was a lucky woman, and Steffy predicted a bright future for the couple. Liam wanted the same for Steffy.
A short time later, Steffy spotted Taylor strolling through the living room and asked where she'd been. Steffy guessed Taylor had talked to Liam, and Taylor admitted it. Steffy said she'd asked Taylor not to interfere, and Liam marrying Hope was the right thing. Taylor responded that it was not the right thing for Steffy. Steffy asked that they not do "this" in public.
Ridge approached and asked if everything was okay. Steffy replied that it was just a mother and daughter disagreement. He told Steffy that it wasn't too late, and he'd cover for her if she wanted to get out of there. Steffy insisted upon staying.
Upstairs, Brooke returned to her room just in time to help Hope, who was alone, with the dress. Hope asked if Brooke had spoken to Liam, and Brooke replied that she'd missed him. To Hope, Brooke seemed distracted. Snapping out of it, Brooke said she just didn't believe Hope wanted to wear that dress after the last time.
Hope replied that Brooke had given it to her, and Hope wanted the connection of getting married in the same dress as her mother. Hope couldn't believe it was happening. Brooke stated that it was, and nothing and nobody would take the life Hope deserved.
Brooke went downstairs to ask everyone to take their seats. As the guests strode about, Brooke snagged Taylor's arm and whispered that Taylor clearly hadn't been listening when Brooke had told her to leave. Taylor said she was there to support her daughter. Not wanting to make a scene in the quiet room, Brooke suggested that Taylor take a seat and keep her mouth shut.
Brooke took her place at the end of the aisle with Carter, Liam, and Wyatt. A bridal instrumental played, and Hope descended the staircase. As Hope and Liam grinned at each other, Brooke and Taylor glared at each other.
• Bill thinks he'll be with his sons someday.
