Liam decided that he could never forgive Steffy, but Ridge urged Liam to be the father and husband Ridge knew Liam could be.

Sanchez questioned Quinn, who'd piqued his interest because of Liam's abduction. Liam accepted Steffy's dinner invitation, and outside the cliff house, he hit his head on a thick branch.

APRIL 2018
April 2 to 6, 2018
Liam convinced Bill to tell the police that he'd been wrong about Ridge. Bill told Sanchez that Bill hadn't recognized the shooter, which left the other suspects to wonder where the investigation would lead next. Hope advised Liam to stay away from his wife and father. Hope kissed Liam, and Liam thought Hope might be right about him needing her. Steffy kissed Liam and tried to coax him to return home, but Liam told her to be with Bill.

April 16 to 20, 2018
Steffy received an app alert that her mother was in town. Surprised, she followed the signal to Bill's house and found her mother there in the middle of a confrontation with Bill. Bill revealed that Taylor, not Liam, was the real shooter. Bill and Steffy convinced Liam that he'd imagined shooting Bill, and some unknown assailant had really done it. For Steffy's sake, Bill didn't turn Taylor in, but in return for his silence, Bill asked Steffy to sign her annulment papers. Steffy complied, and upon giving the papers to Liam, she hoped that he'd change his mind and reunite with her instead.
April 23 to 27, 2018
Steffy signed the annulment papers but told Liam that she wished he'd rip them up and return home. Undecided about filing the papers, Liam took Hope and Brooke up on the offer for him to move into the cabin on Brooke's estate until he made a final decision about his marriage. At an ultrasound appointment, Liam and Steffy bonded in fear over a possible problem with the baby. Bill led Wyatt to believe that there was more going on with Bill and Steffy than anyone knew, and Bill wanted Wyatt to prove his loyalty to his family by telling Liam the truth about Steffy and Bill, so that Liam could move on with Hope.
April 30 to May 4, 2018

Wyatt overheard Justin and Bill arguing about Bill using Wyatt to plant false information in Liam's mind about Steffy and Bill. To buy Wyatt's silence, Bill gave his son a vintage Ferrari.

Will told Wyatt that Wyatt was his brother, not his father, and Katie broke up with Wyatt, citing that they were delusional to think Wyatt could be a father figure to Will.

September 10 to 14, 2018
Emma cut a date with Xander short when things got too intimate, but Zoe showed up, offering to fulfill his needs. Xander resisted, and Zoe decided to wait for him to lose patience with "little Miss Emma." After fuming over Ridge's decision to give the extra funds to Steffy's line and not Hope's, Brooke appealed to Katie on Bill's behalf, to no avail. Brooke promised to keep trying, and the grateful Bill kissed her. Thorne decided that getting married would make him and Katie look good at the custody hearing, and he proposed to Katie.
September 17 to 21, 2018
Katie accepted Thorne's marriage proposal, and Thorne and Katie decided to get married before the hearing to improve their chances in court. Unbeknownst to them, Ridge also decided to improve their chances in court by leveraging a loan he'd made to the judge to get a verdict favorable to Katie. Liam and Wyatt disagreed about what was best for Will. A half-naked Xander gave Steffy an idea. She hired him as an Intimates model, and Zoe became titillated by the idea of working with him.

September 24 to 28, 2018

October 8 to 12, 2018
Brooke confronted the judge and Ridge about their underhanded actions in the custody hearing. Ridge insisted that she keep quiet about it, but instead, Brooke appealed to Katie to resolve the damage Ridge had done to Bill and Will's relationship while not turning Ridge in for judge tampering. Katie, however, believed she would have gotten sole custody, anyway, and she felt put upon to right Ridge's wrongs. Steffy caught Bill kissing Brooke but didn't stick around to see Brooke reject him. Steffy told Ridge, who confronted Brooke about what she'd done to them. Much to Sally and Quinn's delight, Steffy rehired Wyatt at Forrester.
October 15 to 19, 2018
Charlie slipped an engagement ring into a lemon bar to make a special marriage proposal to Pam. Pam accepted, and to Quinn's irritation, Pam asked Eric if she could get married at the mansion beneath Stephanie's portrait.

Pam and Quinn got into a heated argument about their places in the Forrester family. During a scuffle over Stephanie's portrait, Quinn's foot ripped through the canvas.

October 29 to November 2, 2018
Quinn said Pam could have her "damn" wedding at the house; however, after another heated argument with Quinn over Stephanie and Quinn's portraits, Pam told Charlie that she no longer wanted to get married at all. When Bill awakened, he renounced the man he'd been and removed his sword necklace. To prove he was a new man, Bill didn't press charges against Thorne and Ridge. Ridge believed it was a ploy of Bill's to get Brooke back. Brooke defended Bill, and Eric became worried that she'd get caught between Bill and Ridge.

November 26 to 30, 2018
Bill remained cool and evasive when Detective Sanchez showed up with more questions about the shooting.

Zoe warned Reese not to mess things up for her by getting involved with yet another rich woman, especially the mother of Zoe's boss. Taylor informed Steffy that Taylor should leave town, but Steffy wouldn't hear of it. Instead, Steffy invited Taylor to move into the cliff house. Brooke asked Taylor to leave on her own, but Taylor announced that she was there to stay.
December 17 to 21, 2018
Hope asked Liam if he wanted to be with her or Steffy. Liam claimed that disagreeing with Hope didn't mean he wanted to be with his other family.

Desperate for Kelly to have a counterpart like Steffy had had in Phoebe, Steffy contemplated adoption. Brooke tried to enlist Bill to help her deal with Taylor.

Taylor decided to refrain from going to Eric's house for Christmas, and the Forresters celebrated the holiday with their friends and loved ones. An enforcer tracked down Reese Buckingham to pressure him to repay the money he owed the enforcer's boss. Reese promised to pay, and the enforcer hoped Reese was serious -- for Zoe's sake. Hope and Liam decided to take a babymoon to Catalina Island, but Liam had to take a separate flight in order to make a doctor's appointment for Kelly. Santa Ana winds grounded Liam's flight, leaving Hope alone and in labor on the island.
December 31, 2018 to January 4, 2019
Liam turned to Bill for help in getting to Catalina in time for Beth's birth, and Bill's pilot braved the Santa Ana winds to fly Liam to the island. Hope admitted herself into the island clinic. Reese released his only other patient, telling her that "it" hadn't been her fault. Reese's debt collector sent Reese a picture of Zoe and threatened to take her if Reese didn't repay the debt. Hope passed out during labor, and when she awakened, Liam was there. He gave her the sad news that Beth hadn't made it.
