What happened during the week of December 31, 2012
Bill accused Caroline of being disloyal to him and the family by getting herself involved in Rick and Hope's issues. Caroline, however, tried to plead with him to see that Liam and Hope deserved to know the truth. Bill jerked himself away from Caroline, who then tripped and fell off the balcony where they'd been talking. While recovering in the hospital, Caroline claimed that it had been an accident; however, Rick suspected there was more to it. Alison capped Bill's coffee off with liquor. Katie caught a whiff of it and chastised Bill for the inappropriateness. Karen was fed up with Bill's cruelty and out-of-hand drinking, and she asked for Katie's help in dealing with it. In his own living room, Bill found himself surrounded by Brooke, Katie, Taylor, Dani, and Karen. As Rick vowed to care for Caroline and remain by her side during her recovery, Hope went to tell Liam about the fall and to plead her lovelorn case again. Liam said too much had happened, and he and Steffy were closer. Steffy confronted Hope and again warned her to stay away from Liam. Hope, however, said that a reunion was just a matter of time. Liam charged into Caroline's hospital and socked Rick in the face.
