January 7 to 11, 2013
While Bill tried to fast-talk his way out of the intervention at his house, Dayzee revealed to Hope that Bill had done something to sabotage the Italy wedding. Bill ignored Hope's attempts to confront him about it, so Hope bashed in his terrace door with a golf club and confronted him in the middle of the intervention. Hope went straight to Liam with the news, and when Liam confronted Bill about the manipulations, Bill stabbed himself in the chest with Liam's discarded sword necklace. Bill implored Liam not to ruin their relationship, and Liam took his sword necklace back. Later, Bill bought Katie a necklace with cash he kept strapped to his chest in the exact spot in which he'd supposedly stabbed himself. As Rick and Thomas prepared to begin the fashion showdown at Forrester, Steffy headed to the airport for a flight to Paris to see Ridge. Hope seized the chance to warn Liam that she was taking him back. On the way to the airport, Steffy took a side trip to her office, where she scored positive on a home pregnancy test.
January 14 to 18, 2013
Steffy rushed home to tell Liam that she'd gotten a positive reading on a pregnancy test, but she left the house in tears after she looked through a window and observed Liam and Hope making out. Liam told Hope that if they were to have a future, she needed to give him time. Taylor found the pregnancy test, but Steffy swore her mother to secrecy. Taylor called Liam to tell him but reluctantly clicked off the line without saying a word. During a chat from Paris, Steffy permitted Liam to sort things out with Hope -- as long as he didn't cross any lines -- but Steffy insisted that she and Liam shared something more significant. Rick and Thomas competed in the fashion showdown. Eric chose Rick to be the next president and Thomas to be the design protégé. Rick threw Hope a press conference, where she announced her new ideas for her clothing line, and a confident Hope told Liam that it was their time to explore what could have been. Eric figured out that he and Pam were using each other to bypass grieving for Stephanie, and together, they began the grieving process in earnest. Bill complained to Brooke about Katie taking his booze away, and Brooke suggested that Katie lighten up. Brooke was shocked to learn that Katie and Bill hadn't been having sex, and Brooke immediately scheduled them an adult play date at her cabin.
January 21 to 25, 2013
Maya, a wrongfully convicted ex-con showed up at the café, desperate for Dayzee's help in getting Maya's daughter back. Dayzee was in a quandary because she wanted to forget the past and embrace her new life as a Forrester. Unhappy with the outcome of the Forrester fashion contest, Thomas decided that he'd go to Paris instead of being unappreciated at home. Taylor blasted Eric and a portrait of Stephanie over how Eric and Stephanie's choices had affected Taylor's children. Taylor accused Stephanie of being more like Brooke than they knew, and Stephanie's painting popped off the wall as if it were possessed. Taylor also ordered Brooke to do something about Hope, and Taylor refused to lose to the Logans anymore. Brooke said that was a cop-out, and everyone needed to get along, as Stephanie had wanted. Taylor revealed her bitterness over Stephanie's choice to die with Brooke at her side. Brooke's romantic evening for Katie and Bill went bust when Bill tried to sneak a shot of scotch. Katie walked out on Bill. The couple made up at home, but Bill seemed preoccupied as Katie made love to him.
January 28 to February 1, 2013
Taylor turned to Eric for support, and the two commiserated about Stephanie's death. Taylor swore Eric to secrecy about Steffy's pregnancy. Eric decided to name Thomas the vice president of Forrester in hopes of stopping him from going to Paris. The grateful Taylor kissed Eric. Hope and Liam spent more time together, and Hope advised Liam to ask Steffy to move out because the women deserved to be on equal footing. On the plane ride home, Steffy confided her woes in a passenger named Monica. Steffy returned to town and told her mother that she didn't want Liam to choose her just because of the baby. Brooke advised Liam to stop stringing Steffy along. Outside the cliff house, Brooke surprised Liam with a kite show reminiscent of the one they'd seen during the Italy wedding.

Steffy arrived home, but Liam asked her to move out of the cliff house to give him time to think. Steffy retreated to her loft, where her mother implored her to tell Liam about the baby. Steffy, however, insisted that she wouldn't use the baby to trap Liam. Bill and Taylor tried to convince Liam that he was making a big mistake with Steffy. While in a heated discussion with Hope, Steffy went on a tirade about the Logans. Hope warned Steffy to stop, but when Steffy continued to yell in Hope's face, Hope shoved Steffy into a desk. Marcus questioned Dayzee about some adoption papers that he and his brother had found, and Dayzee admitted that she might be in trouble.
February 11 to 15, 2013
Eric comforted Taylor, who felt vulnerable without Ridge or Stephanie to hold Brooke at bay, and on Valentine's Day, Eric surprised Taylor with flowers. Marcus, Carter, and Dayzee learned that Maya's daughter and the adoptive parents had died in a car accident. Maya took the news with great difficulty, but after visiting the extended family of the adoptive parents, Maya made peace with her daughter's death and realized that Dayzee had given the child to a loving family. On Valentine's Day, Will's cold symptoms caused Katie to sleep in the nursery, and Bill wound up sexually frustrated and fantasizing about Brooke. Hope asked Rick to apologize to Liam, and the two men reconciled their differences. Liam told Steffy that he'd make his choice in one more day. Unbeknownst to Liam and Hope, Brooke and Father Fontana were recreating the Italy wedding at the cliff house for what Brooke hoped would be Hope and Liam's elopement.
February 18 to 22, 2013
Brooke called Hope over to Liam's house, where Brooke had planned a surprise elopement for her daughter and Liam. Taylor accompanied Steffy to a sonogram appointment, and afterward, Steffy learned about the elopement from Madison. Steffy and her mother raced to the cliff house and interrupted the ceremony to reveal Steffy's pregnancy. Steffy claimed that they'd find a way to raise the baby if Liam chose to marry Hope, and Hope implored him to consider that he didn't have to be married to Steffy to raise the baby. Eric unwittingly ruined an afternoon date for Rick and Caroline by signing Rick up for community service at Dayzee's. Caroline left Rick to do the community service alone, and while busing tables at the café, Rick became enamored by Maya's singing.
February 25 to March 1, 2013
Hope asked Liam to make a decision based upon what he wanted, no matter what others thought. Liam wanted to be the man he saw in Hope's eyes, and that meant standing by his child. Liam and Hope kissed each other goodbye, and Liam returned to the pregnant Steffy. To cheer up Hope, Oliver showed her the hope symbol tattoo he'd gotten on his ankle. Bill consoled Brooke about Liam and Hope and advised Brooke to get herself back into the game at Forrester. Taylor joined Eric for a romantic dinner, and he gave her a nightgown he'd designed. Brooke found Taylor and Eric in Stephanie's bedroom and accused Taylor of seducing and using Eric. Eric declared that he loved Taylor, ordered Brooke out of the house, then pronounced Taylor the new Forrester matriarch.

His keys got locked in his car, and Maya took him in for the night. Rick took Maya to a Forrester boutique to try on clothes, but when a sales person recognized Rick, Maya became disenchanted with Rick's farce. Rick tried to explain, but Maya sadly showed him the door. Sales figures were down at Forrester, and Taylor urged Eric to take another look at Thomas' ideas. Brooke and Bill decided that it was time to make their move, and in the middle of Thomas' presentation, they staged an impromptu glimpse at the new Brooke's Bedroom. Impressed, Eric immediately decided to implement Brooke's plan over Thomas'.
March 18 to 22, 2013
Brooke and Bill celebrated their victory, but Taylor blasted Brooke for thinking she could revamp Brooke's Bedroom and work so closely with Katie's husband.

Katie lashed out at Brooke for the inappropriate relationship, and Brooke advised Katie to pay more attention to her husband. Rick was unenthused when Caroline stripped down to her lingerie in his office, and Caroline left upset. Maya opened up to Dayzee about the relationship that had developed between Maya and Rick. To Maya's surprise, Dayzee advised Maya to respect Caroline and Rick's relationship. Hope talked to Liam about how hard it was to see Steffy at the office.
March 25 to 29, 2013
Dayzee relayed to Caroline that Rick had been seeing another woman. Donning lingerie, Caroline set out to prove to Rick why he was with her. Rick confessed that he had feelings for Maya, and as Caroline attempted to seduce him, Maya peeped into his guesthouse window. When none of Caroline's seduction tactics worked, she went straight to Maya and demanded that Maya stay away from Rick. Maya, however, went straight to Rick and kissed him. Katie and Bill continued to butt heads, with Brooke stuck in the middle. Katie was livid when Brooke text-messaged Bill about attending a press conference, and she ordered Brooke to cease all contact with Bill. Determined to prove that he only told himself what to do, Bill played a drinking game in which he took a shot each time Katie told him "no." He got so drunk that he wound up plowing his car into Brooke's.

Maya was excited about a new acting opportunity but had no idea what type of movies the producer needed her for. After the car accident, Brooke worried that the police and Katie would find out that Bill had been driving drunk. Brooke called Katie to say that Bill was spending the night at Brooke's house. Katie flipped out, and the next morning, she stormed over to Brooke's house and demanded a divorce from Bill.

Hope was ready to go in a new direction with her clothing line, so Rick asked Maya to be a spokesmodel. Hope and Liam babysat Will, and Liam supported Hope when she learned of Katie's heart failure. Eric and Taylor decided to throw Liam and Steffy a wedding, and as Liam and Steffy gleefully planned the ceremony, Taylor advised Hope to move on with her life.

Katie awakened at the hospital and asked for her wedding rings. Katie had realized that she'd been wrong about Bill and Brooke, and Katie wanted to continue with her marriage.
