When Oliver inadvertently videotaped Brooke's daughter, Bridget cheating on her husband, Steffy wanted to use the footage to hurt Brooke's family, but Oliver talked her out of it. Instead, Steffy went for the jugular after Brooke "accidentally" had sex with Oliver at Hope's graduation party, where everyone wore masks. Steffy told Brooke she wouldn't go public about the tryst if Brooke left Forrester and sent Hope away to college. Oliver also had to date Steffy. Brooke diffused Steffy's bomb by telling Ridge about Oliver herself. A forgiving Ridge forced Steffy to craft a video tribute to Brooke. Computer tech Liam Spencer mistakenly recorded Steffy talking to Ridge about Brooke's betrayal. Justin Barber, Liam's boss at Spencer Publications, coerced Liam into augmenting Steffy's video with the recording, betting that Brooke's latest scandal would help sell magazines. Ridge fired Steffy when the video went public, but Steffy got Liam to help clear her name. Taylor demonstrated her faith in her daughter by gifting her with her 25% share in Forrester.

Later, she desperately asked Bill for help when Thomas went missing at sea. Bill declared his love for Steffy after the rescue brought them closer, but he refused to leave Katie. Steffy was overjoyed when Ridge divorced Brooke and planned to remarry Taylor upon learning that Thomas and Brooke had sex on a deserted island while hopped up on psychedelic berries.

Hope and Liam's Wedding in Italy
Having forged a tentative truce with Hope, Steffy hesitated accepting an invitation to Hope's wedding in Puglia, Italy Bill realized that Liam still had unresolved feelings, and hinted the tide could turn in Steffy's favor, so Steffy attended. Steffy was at Liam's side when he found a note that implied Hope had jilted him, so Liam kissed Steffy and prepared to go away with her on the Spencer jet. Hope later returned and explained that the appearance of her estranged father, Deacon Sharpe, had delayed her and that the goodbye note was from her father to her. Steffy heard everything from the bathroom and was heartbroken when Liam went to marry Hope. Steffy watched the ceremony from afar, but slipped and fell into the Adriatic Sea. She was furious when she discovered that Bill had sprung Deacon Sharpe from jail in an attempt to push Liam back toward Steffy. An iPad had accidentally recorded video of Liam and Steffy making out in Italy. Steffy deleted it but first e-mailed a copy to herself. One day Hope saw the video and declared she hated Steffy before insisting on a fresh wedding to Liam. The night before the ceremony Hope and Liam were supposed to be together, but Steffy's grandmother started feeling bad and Hope stayed with her instead., Liam hung out with Steffy, having followed her to a club, and had a great time dancing together. They woke on the roof of the club, and Liam was sporting dyed hair and a tattoo. Steffy dropped off the very late and hung-over Liam at the wedding venue. Hope heard the motorcycle and realized Steffy had delivered Liam, and then after seeing him, she called off the wedding and dumped him. Bill angrily advised Liam to forget her after Liam humiliated himself by begging Hope on his knees. Taylor spoke to a devastated, crying Liam, reminding him that Steffy still loved him. Later he sought out Steffy. Steffy took him to a bungalow on Brooke's property where she had spent time with Ridge as a child to talk. After talking, Steffy and Liam made love which Donna Logan saw and reported back to Bill and Brooke.
After Hope left Liam believing that Liam has cheated Steffy and Liam bonded and went back to each other and travelled together. Steffy and Liam's flight to Hawaii was diverted to Aspen when Bill and Brooke needed the Spencer jet to look for Katie, who had disappeared during a bout with postpartum depression. Steffy helped Liam look after his new baby brother, Will. When it was evident Katie wasn't in Aspen, Steffy and Liam found time to go parasailing together. Returning to Los Angeles, Liam asked Steffy to move in with him. Steffy agreed, but kept her penthouse loft in an effort to maintain some independence. Steffy was very hopeful and secure in her relationship, but meanwhile Hope found out that Liam didn't cheat on her with Steffy and that it was a lie fabricated by her brother Rick. The truth came out thanks toCaroline Spencer II, Liam's cousin and Rick's girlfriend at the time who pushed Hope's brother to confess. Hope ran straight to Liam and apologized to him. She kissed the shocked Spencer man and he went home and confessed what happened to Steffy. Steffy asked if that changed things, but Liam assured Steffy that he likes who they are together and that it's simple and fun, natural and that she is the one that makes him smile. Steffy then leaves Liam home and goes straight to Hope to asks her what she is planning and Hope says that she wants to win Liam back. Steffy tells Hope to not try because she had her chance and that she won't accept Hope interfering in her relationship with Liam. Hope tells Steffy that truth has changed everything, but Steffy thinks that the clock can't be turned around because she and Liam are connected. Hope asked Steffy if she wouldn't interfere if would be the other way around and Steffy admitted that she didn't play fair, but said that now it's different. Hope said that she won't use any games, but she won't back off. Steffy mentioned how Hope's mother flaunted her sexuality to get Steffy father Ridge, but Hope replies that she is not her mother. When Steffy left Hope's home Liam came by to see her and they embraced. He told Hope that he revealed the truth to Steffy, but Hope informed him that Steffy already came and informed her about it and said that she and Liam were in bed when he told her. Hope said that Steffy also told her to not interfere because nothing had changed. Hope asked Liam if that's true. Liam replied by saying that she believed Rick and Othello, Rick's friend instead of him. He said that he and Steffy grew closer since the time he and Hope broke things off. Hope says she knows that she will have to earn his trust back and asks Liam to not count her out. Liam smiles to Hope in response. Back at home Liam has a conversation with Steffy. Steffy tells Liam that she knows that Hope is on his mind, but it's her job to take her out of it and they kiss. Steffy flirtingly shows Liam a piece of sexy see through lingerie from the Intimates collection asking for Liam's "professional opinion". They joke around and kiss again. Steffy stars walking around in lingerie from her line and tells Liam that she cares only about him and making him happy. She reminds Liam that he is in a good place, relaxed and free and asks him to not go into all the Hope drama again. They toast and kiss again. Steffy tried to encourage Liam to stay with her instead of going to work, but Liam says he has to go. Liam arrived at work where he meets Hope that informs her that his father Bill accidentally pushed Caroline from the balcony during an argument. Bill wants Steffy and Liam to be together and he was upset that his niece worked to reveal the truth to Hope which might create problems for his son's relationship with the woman he wants for him. Hope again apologizes to Liam for being too proud and too selfish. Liam asks why is she doing this now and reminded her how he begged her in the past. He reminds Hope that he lives with Steffy now. He tells Hope to stop and comes to a conclusion that too much has already happened. Liam expresses his hate for Rick and tells Hope that maybe there is a guy out there that will live up to her expectations, but Hope says her expectations have changed and she doesn't want prince charming anymore. She says she will prove to him that they do still have a chance. Liam said that they would go through it if not for Bill and Rick. Hope wants Liam to remind himself all their great moments like the kiss in Cabo. While Hope and Liam talk at Spencer Publications Steffy informs her mother about Hope's new plan of winning Liam back. Steffy calls Liam's work and finds out that Liam talks with his ex fiance. Steffy tells her mom that apparently Hope didn't listen when she told her to respect her relationship with Liam. Liam goes to see his cousin Caroline and the hospital where he meets Rick in. He blames him for his role in an unfixable situation he has put him in and punches him. Meanwhile Steffy goes to talk with Hope at Forrester creations. She reminds Hope that she was the one that told him to move on because she believes the lie. Hope admits that this time Steffy is a victim too, but she wasn't always innocent. Steffy laughs it off. Hope reminds Steffy that her relationship was attacked by Bill and her from the start. Steffy says that she wants her to stay away from Liam. At home Steffy asks Liam why is Liam to upset with Hope's brother. He replies that he made their lives complicated, but Steffy says he didn't make their relationship more complicated. The same time Hope finds out that also Bill manipulated her life in Italy and that almost everyone, but her knew, but they didn't say it to her because Liam and Steffy already re-connected and the situation was complicated. That made Hope only more determinate to fight for Liam. She runs straight to Liam and tells him everything. Liam is devastated that his father lies to him again after manipulating his life so many times in the past. During that time Steffy tells her brother that she thinks that she and Liam are in a place that Hope just can't touch and she's not intimidated by her rival. Liam goes to confront his father and Hope says in the Malibu home.When Steffy gets home she see's that Hope is inside the house that she and Liam share. She is surprised that she see's her there and asks Hope why she is here. Hope told Steffy that now Liam know everything, including his dad's latest scheme. Steffy says she had no involvement in it even if she had her suspicions that Bill did something in Italy. Hope says that she and Liam would be married if not for outside forces and that she believes that one day they will be. Steffy tells Hope again that Liam moved on and this is their home and Hope can't just walk in and tear everything up. When Liam came back home he questioned her why she didn't tell her about her suspicions that Bill is scheming again and she replies by saying she didn't want to ruin their father/son relationship. Steffy informs Liam that her father invited her to Paris and she's going. The two make love. Liam says he will miss her and assures her that he is committed to her. Steffy goes to Forrester Creations before leaving to Paris and takes a pregnancy test. She cries tears of joy when she realized that she's expecting a child with Liam. At that time Hope tells Liam that she's taking him back because they were robbed. Hope says she knows that he cares for Steffy and that she changed for the better, but that doesn't erase what she did in the past and that she is glad that Steffy is on her way to Paris. Steffy starts packing up Steffy's clothers and wants to move her out of Liam's home and says that she is through with being nice. She wants to come back home. Liam tries to stop her, but when Hope screams that she loves him he says that he loves her too and they kiss passionately. They fall on the bed and start kissing on Steffy's clothes that Hope threw all around the bed. They didn't now that before leaving for France Steffy wanted to stop by and inform her boyfriend that she's pregnat. Steffy peeks thought the window and see's Hope and Liam making out on the bed. Steffy is heartbroken and caught off guard, but she decides not to confront them and leaves. At one point Liam stops the kiss and says it's not fair to Steffy. Liam makes it clear that if there is any future for them he needs time. Steffy arrives at FC where Taylor confronts her after finding her pregnancy test. She notices that Steffy is stressed and tries to find out more, but Steffy asks her mother to keep it between them and leaves. Steffy goes on the plane for Paris and cries on her way there. Steffy video calls Liam from Paris and pretends that she didn't see anything just as Liam doesn't tell her what he and Hope did behind her back. Steffy reminded Liam about the complications Hope brought to their relationship and said that manipulations waren't the only reason he and Hope were kept apart. Steffy says that she and him share something that he doesn't share with Hope, but she will give him some time with Hope because he needs to sort it out and get it out of his system. Steffy video chats also with Taylor and explains to her that she doesn't tell Liam about her pregnancy because she wants him to choose her over Hope and not because she's pregnant. With Steffy away Liam and Hope spend a lot of romantic time together. Taylor visits Liam and see's that Hope is with him. Taylor isn't pleased with Hope being there while Steffy is thousands of miles away and Hope asks her if she thinks that Steffy wouldn't do the same thing if the roles were reversed. Taylor is temped to reveal the news about Steffy's pregnancy, but she stays loyal to Steffy and doesn't. She gives Hope hints that there is a reason why Liam will end up with her daughter and she's going to get hurt and encourages her to bow out gracefully. Liam begins being very torn. Steffy comes back from Paris and she tells Liam what she saw before leaving. Liam tells Steffy that she has to move out so he can figure out with whom he should be. Steffy is heartbroken and leaves without telling Liam about their baby that's growing inside of her.
2nd Marriage to Liam
Steffy and Hope have a heated argument. When Steffy started yelling and insulting Hope's mother the Logan girl not knowing that Steffy is pregnant pushes her and she falls on the desk. Steffy and Taylor went to the sonogram and heard that fortunately Steffy's baby is unharmed. Brooke organizes a surprise wedding for Hope and Liam in Malibu to rush Liam's decision. She brings the priest from Puglia to re-create the Italian wedding Hope and Liam had in Polignano a mare. Liam is caught off guard, but decides to put a ring on Hope's finger and commit to her. Steffy and Taylor found out about Brooke's plans to marry Hope and Liam. Steffy changed plans and doesn't want to wait for Liam to make a decision without knowing about their child. She and Taylor go to Malibu and stop the wedding second before Hope and Liam would become husband and wife. Steffy whispered in Liam's ear that she's pregnant. Once Liam heard that Steffy is pregnant he told Hope that he won't take a possibility of a full family from his child. Soon after he and married Steffy in Eric's mansion. Steffy shocked the wedding guests by riding up the aisle on a motorcycle, wearing a black dress/suit ensemble that she had gotten Eric to design. Liam surprised her by having her "all-time favorite" singer, Julia Michaels, perform at the reception. Steffy then correctly guessed that Liam had arranged for their honeymoon to be in Aspen, and she and Liam even considered naming their child Aspen in honor of their favorite place. Steffy and Liam were very happy thinking about the future that they will have with their baby.
Liam and Steffy gleefully bought baby clothes and picked out colors for the nursery. She then paid a visit to Thomas, who had moved into Taylor's old beach house with Oliver. Steffy told Thomas how happy she and Liam were, unaware that a tearful Hope was within earshot. She empathized with Hope and was so moved when Hope broke down and admitted she was happy for Steffy that she hugged her rival. Not wanting to keep Liam waiting, Steffy decided to dodge a traffic jam by riding her motorcycle home though she had promised Liam she wouldn't ride while pregnant. A car darted in front of her which caused her to wipe out. Having suffered another concussion (on top of the concussions she'd had before), Steffy didn't remember being pregnant. But with Liam's coaching, she put the pieces together and was horrified to learn she had lost their baby. As Steffy slid into a deep depression, Taylor begged her not to blame herself for riding the motorcycle. She took a baseball bat to the bike and latched on immediately when Taylor suggested that Steffy and Liam have another baby. What Steffy and Taylor don't know is that Liam is secretly furious with Steffy because before the accident that caused the death of baby Aspen he specifically told Steffy to not ride the motorcycle. Bill encourages Liam to scream at him and pretend that he is Steffy because he can take it and she won't be able. Liam also reveals to his father that he has thought about leaving steffy because of Hope and if not for the pregnancy he would marry her that day in Malibu when Brooke organized the surprise wedding. Liam didn't openly say "no" to the suggestion that he and Steffy should have another baby, but he complained to Hope that he is not ready for it. Hope expressed that she thinks that maybe the miscarriage was meant to be and encouraged Liam to go back to her. Despite everything Liam continued to support his grieving wife.
Infertility and moving to Paris
One day Katie Logan, Hope's aunt told Steffy that Liam was about to marry Hope and got married to her only because of the pregnancy. Steffy gets upset and passes out. Katie takes her to the hospital where Steffy hears that she's infertile. Steffy was told a botched D&C procedure had rendered her unable to have more children. She refused to tell Liam about her infertility and swore Katie to secrecy. After spending the night alone in her loft to think, Steffy announced she was moving to Paris and told Liam she wanted a divorce, cryptically insisting that Hope could give him something she couldn't. . Liam is confused. Hope is there and even though Liam considers a future with her he still wants to go to Steffy to get anwsers. In Paris, Steffy ignored Liam's voice mails and texts and was surprised weeks later when Liam showed up on her doorstep wanting answers. Steffy eventually broke down and admitted she couldn't conceive again, but rejected Liam's suggestions of adoption or surrogacy. Steffy stood her ground about him returning to Hope. As Liam left, Steffy thought better of it and tried to catch him in the hallway, but she was too late.
Later, she notified Liam by e-mail that she would only accept a divorce and not an annulment, meaning Liam (who had moved on with Hope) would have to wait six months before marrying her. Steffy continued to communicate with Liam, ultimately changing her mind and agreeing to his request for an annulment so he could wed Hope. Liam was over the moon when he received the annulment papers from Steffy because he was in a rush to marry Hope and the reason was because his new-found biological brother Wyatt Spencer became a rival for Hope's heart.
Liam, wanting to impress Hope created a romantic video using their photos. He was horrified when he realized that by mistake he sent it to Steffy. Steffy asked if he could make a romantic video for them too. Liam decided to accept his ex wife's request and made a video for Steffy as well. Hope accidentally saw it which opened a can of worms and brought an opportunity for Wyatt to steal Hope away.
Steffy's Procedures and Quinn's support
Steffy returned to L.A. for a doctors appointment and came to see her grandfather Eric again where she met Quinn. Quinn gets a smile to see Steffy. While Steffy was getting on her plane to fly back to Paris, Quinn told Eric she'd meet at Forrester International in Paris and catch the flight with Steffy. Quinn arrives on the jet and convinces Steffy to break up Hope and Liam. Quinn continues to persuade Steffy to go back to Los Angeles and reunite with Liam so Hope can be with Wyatt, but Steffy shows no interest of going back and Quinn is told of how Steffy tragically miscarried Liam's child after a motorcycle accident. Once settled in at Forrester International, Quinn overhears Steffy on the phone with Dr. Caspary in which she informs Steffy that after several medical procedures is finally able to conceive a child to full term. Quinn again tries to convince Steffy that she should go back and reunite with Liam as well as deliver the news that she is able to conceive again. Steffy once again shows no interest of going back to Los Angeles, but can't hide her feelings she still has for Liam. Liam also gave Hope an ultimatum and she chose to be with Liam and Liam made her cut ties with Wyatt and Quinn from Forrester. Eric disagreed with this after Quinn put her spin on the whole situation.
Quinn convinces Steffy to go back to L.A. and to meet with Liam in the cabin. Quinn leaves a note in Hope's bedroom before her wedding with Liam that Liam wanted her to meet him in the cabin despite tradition. Steffy backed away when Liam saw her through the window and he brought her in to talk. Steffy told Liam the great news in which he was happy for her. Hope trailed down and saw them talking and called off the wedding running off. Hope flew to Hawaii with Wyatt and rehired Quinn Artisans Jewelry. Hope remained loyal to Wyatt and Steffy flew back to Paris. Ridge and R.J. then moved back to L.A. shortly after. Hope later marries Wyatt in Milan, when Hope was supposed to marry Liam in Paris, but Quinn pushed Ivy Forrester into the Seine, forcing Liam to save her, and be too late in meeting Hope. Hope miscarried Wyatt's baby and said goodbye to Liam & telling him she would always love him & explaining she was not being able to stay in LA because of all the pain she had incurred there especially the miscarriage so she left for Milan to be with Brooke, and Wyatt later did the same but Hope told him to go back to LA which he did. Liam shortly thereafter started a relationship with Ivy.
Return to L.A. and Feud over control of Forrester Creations
Forrester Creations was at war with Rick as CEO after Caroline and Ridge's affair. Liam told Bill he wants to take over Forrester Creations. Bill asked Liam how is he going to do that and Liam stated he was married to her. Bill was thrilled Liam wanted to use Steffy and Liam stated she's in L.A. because he followed her online post. Liam called Steffy and explained he wanted to meet with her and Steffy stated at his house. Steffy appeared at Liam's remembering all the great memories they've shared. Steffy asked if he missed her and he stated how could he. Liam asked Steffy if her and Ridge are still talking and she didn't reply but stated she talked to Hope. Liam asked how she was and Steffy stated some topics don't come up. Steffy then stated she never replaced that motorcycle. Liam and Steffy continued to talk and laugh. Liam explained he wants to take over Forrester Creations with her. Bill owns part of the company and Steffy and Thomas own a part that combined equals 30%. Liam told Steffy together they can take over Forrester Creations. Steffy was hesitant. Steffy and Liam reminisced about all their memories and hugged on the couch when Ivy came home from shopping. Ivy was a bit jealous and Steffy excitedly greeted Ivy who was equally happy to see her. Before Steffy left, Liam told her to keep it in mind which she agreed to. Liam and Bill got Wyatt in on the plan but were shocked he quit after Rick gave him attitude. Liam and Bill explained the plan and made Wyatt ask Rick for his job back. Steffy told Liam she couldn't do it. Liam convinced her she's strong, and independent, and a fighter! Steffy admit she can't come to work seeing him every day with Ivy, and he's doing this for Ivy not her! Steffy admit she's still in love with him!

Steffy then congratulated Rick on his CEO position. Bill convinced Liam to dump the plant and go back to Steffy, the woman he was always meant to be with. Steffy then warned him she likes that chair.
After Ivy left Liam's beach house, he called Steffy to meet him there. Steffy arrived at Liam's in a skimpy bikini and a towel around her waist which she took off. Liam was very attracted and Steffy stated she misses LA'S water so much. Paris only has one river, which nobody swims in, well except for Ivy. Steffy kept trying to convince Liam to go swimming in the ocean even when Liam stated how cold the temperature was but they decided to go have fun. They came back from their swim, Liam stated how much he misses her, and Steffy kissed Liam. Steffy explained if he wants to run Forrester with her, they have to be lovers. Liam tried explaining to Steffy he's in love with her cousin. Steffy explained she can't do this without their relationship and Liam stated any man would want to be with her.

Ridge stated Steffy still loves Liam and she admit she does. Ridge's main concern was the plan would be putting Eric out of business. Steffy stated it's the only thing to do with Rick. ridge stated Eric loved him and treated him just like a son. Steffy stated Eric is favoring his brother now. Steffy was explaining to Ridge in his apartment that she is leaving for Paris, at least for now, when Caroline arrived home. Before Steffy left back for Paris, she civilly said goodbye to Ridge and Caroline.
After Eric wouldn't appoint Ridge as CEO, Ridge called Steffy on the phone to meet him at Forrester. Steffy arrived informed that Maya is transgender and Eric won't remove Rick as CEO. Ridge insisted he needed Steffy and him to be a team to take over Forrester and she agreed. Ridge insisted this is bigger than her getting Liam back and him getting CEO. Rick arrived in his office giving them a hard time. Ridge called Liam to meet him at Forrester. Liam was happy to see Steffy and she was also pleased. Ridge convinced Liam to use Steffy's, Thomas's, Bill's controlled by Liam, and Thomas's to overpower Eric. Steffy stated there are no conditions this time. Liam agreed and Ridge insisted to Eric that they're taking over while Eric insisted he's in charge which Ridge stated he's in charge now. Ridge was the new CEO, with Steffy president, and Liam vice president, which he is also at Spencer's. Steffy and Liam agreed they would make a great team. Liam stated Steffy's change like a cool mountain stream. They remembered their time in Aspen by a stream. Steffy stated she is not afraid to state that she loves him and will always love him with Ivy overhearing.
Rick and Eric were getting nervous that Steffy, Ridge, and Liam were going to use Ridge's, Steffy's, Thomas's, and Bill's shares to take over Forrester Creations. Rick came to Bill to make a business proposition. Rick tried convincing Bill to use his shares to his and Eric's advantage and he'll have more control around the company. In the middle of the meeting in Rick's office, Bill barged in explaining their deal and his predicament. Bill explained he doesn't like the way Ridge treats him. Bill asked Ridge and Rick to convince him why he should take their side. Bill commended Liam for protecting Caroline and Ivy. Ultimately, Bill chose to side with Rick under one condition, Maya, the face of Forrester Creations, has to go. Rick punched Bill and withdrew from the deal. Ridge became the new CEO with Steffy president and Liam vice president. Steffy and Liam were congratulating with champagne when Aly Forrester saw Steffy kiss Liam. Aly came by to confront Steffy about throwing herself at Liam. Steffy claimed it was a congratulatory kiss. Aly warned Steffy to leave Ivy and Liam's relationship alone. Aly claimed Ivy is a good model for Forrester Creations with morals. Meanwhile, Ivy told Liam she was encouraging Wyatt to ask Steffy out. Wyatt stated any man would fall in love with Steffy because she's incredibly intelligent and beautiful.
Wyatt was friendly with Steffy that they're both trying to get over similar situations. Wyatt started flirting with Steffy stating she's beautiful and intelligent and she should give him a chance. Wyatt kissed Steffy. Wyatt insisted he doesn't play second to his brother.
Quinn questions his love life and mentions Hope and Maya's little sister went south. Wyatt explained Nicole was fun but there might be a new woman in his life. Quinn was asking questions. Wyatt turned Steffy's picture around on Ridge's desk. Quinn was shocked but then stated "She's so hot!" Wyatt explained he told her to give them a chance, right after he kissed her.
Steffy stopped over at Liam's and explained that there might be another man in her life. Liam was bothered by this and asked who and Steffy stated he works at Forrester and has his last name. Liam was upset that out of all people it was Wyatt. Steffy stated that Wyatt kissed her and she just enjoyed it. Steffy stated there's only one person she wants to kiss, if he still wants her. Liam admit he has been feeling those feelings about Steffy again. Ivy walked in eavesdropping hearing Liam tell Steffy he'll help Ivy understand over dinner tonight. Ivy was heartbroken and ran out crying. Quinn convinced Ivy to ask Liam to marry her so she won't be deported. Liam told Ivy he wants to help her understand something but Ivy stated she already knows. Liam wants Steffy back and Ivy mentioned she's being deported. Liam was shocked and angered. Ivy informed him that her father filled out the paperwork incorrectly. She has a week to pack her bags for Australia. And she'd have to register for another passport which could take months or years if that. Liam stated he wished there was another way and Ivy stated maybe there is. Ivy asked him to marry her, to which he agreed. They were married on June 16, 2015. However, when Steffy found out about the marriage, she was furious because she felt that Liam had created a situation where they could never be together. Steffy said she's done with Liam because she won't share him with another woman again, especially not his wife! Steffy was enraged and rushed to the Forrester rooftop lounge where Wyatt comforted her and kissed her.
Agent McCaffrey returned to Liam and Ivy's to inform Ivy that they made a mistake. Ivy does indeed have dual citizenship, married to Liam or not. Ivy was worried about telling Liam he doesn't have to be married to her because of his feelings for Steffy. Quinn convinced Ivy not to tell him since he married her because he loves her. Ivy stated he doesn't love her the same way he loves Steffy. Ivy explained to Liam that he didn't have to marry her, she always had dual citizenship, and they made a huge mistake. Liam hugged Ivy. Liam rushed to Steffy with the information. Steffy didn't want him to explain anything at first but after he did she had mixed feelings. She was still mad that he married her in the first place. Ivy confronted Liam when Steffy questioned his intentions. Liam admits to Ivy he wants an annulment. Ivy explained she understands that they have history and she can't compete with memories. Steffy explained to Liam if he still feels anything for Ivy, she won't do this again.
Ivy confided in Aly who was uninformed about the surprise wedding. Aly went to confront Steffy who was having Liam feel her lingerie for the line. Aly snapped at Steffy claiming they replaced a tyrant with a slut. Liam stated Aly's out of line but Aly kept trying to convince Liam that he can't do this to Ivy and he married her because he loves her. Liam stated Aly's out of line. Liam left and Steffy changed back into her dress. Aly wouldn't drop it and Steffy mentioned Aly's "issues". Aly stated he issue is that Steffy's mother killed her mother. Steffy was shocked and stated Aly forgave her mother because she was there. Aly stated she was persuaded to say the words but she could never forgive Taylor for killing her mother. Steffy took the situation delicately and explained it was an accident. Aly blasted both of them by saying Taylor and Steffy are both sluts and use their sexuality to get whatever they want. As Steffy was trying to help Aly, Aly envisioned Aly saying the words "drunken mother" and "get rid of her". Steffy tried snapping Aly out of it. Steffy just figured they should stay away from each other. As Steffy was trying to work things out with Aly, Ridge stopped in to mention the meeting is in ten minutes. Aly asked if she could come and Ridge allowed her to. Ridge announced that Hope For The Future is over which offended Aly. Ridge announced to everybody the new line "California Freedom" which uses a lot of the morals and dignity of Hope For The Future but encourages women to be free with lines including lingerie and swimwear. Aly stated she'd expect this from Steffy but not Ridge. Aly asked if Steffy was going to model for the lingerie and Aly snapped at ridge for letting his daughter being viewed in underwear. Aly went off about the morals that her grandmother and grandfather instilled in this company and how they're being forgotten. Everybody else agreed it was a good idea and tried to placate Aly. Aly ended the meeting with irrelevantly bashing Steffy for killing Darla. Steffy tried to get through to Aly once again.
At the Forrester's Fourth of July party, Aly became hateful of Steffy and Maya for wearing bathing suits. Aly snapped at Oliver for allegedly checking out Steffy's body. Aly saw Darla tell Aly to get rid of Steffy again and her glow darkened into a sadistic looking dark glow. Aly snapped at Steffy for exploiting her sexuality in a public place. Steffy stated people wear bathing suits and their dad's grew up here, it's not even public. Steffy took Liam for a surprise. They left the mansion to run outside where Steffy held a message session. When Liam's head was down, Steffy got up and pretended to be the masseuse and felt lower and lower down his back and grabbed his butt cheeks much to his surprise and admitted liking. Steffy flirted, saying she hoped he was ok with a little pressure and kissed him. As they walked around, Liam stated he's still trying to sort out his feelings but his feelings for Steffy are coming back. Steffy licked her lips, saying they belonged together and pressed her large lips against him in a hungry kiss. Ivy asked Liam to schedule a date for them some time, just do nothing and be very boring, nothing special. Liam stated he would like that.
Caroline, Ridge, Steffy, Rick and Maya held another meeting for Forrester's new line, California Freedom which Aly attended. Aly was being very hostile towards Steffy and Maya for embracing their sexuality the way Maya and Rick treated her and upset that Ridge allowed a new line involving lingerie and swimsuits. Maya genuinely apologized for the past. Aly stated "No wonder. Maya doesn't want to talk about the past." Steffy stated if she's just going to criticize everything, maybe she should just go back to Thorne in Paris. Steffy told Aly "You're my cousin, and I love you, but why would we want you to stay?" Aly stated "Uncle Ridge said I could stay." Ridge explained he said she can stay if she behaved. Aly got teary eyed and stated if she feels something's wrong, she has to speak out and she wants to help with the shoe line. Ridge stated "Then you know what you have to do."

After the members left, Ivy confronts Steffy about what really happened that night. Ivy believes Aly didn't just slip and fall and die. Steffy was upset for getting accused of something and explains she doesn't need to explain herself to anyone. Liam had a minute with Ivy and broke up with her at Aly's funeral which greatly upset her while Wyatt had a second with Steffy to guess that Liam's dropping the bomb on Ivy right now.

But Thomas demands Ivy to delete the video. Ivy blackmails Thomas into making her the new face of Forrester Creations to keep her silence or Steffy will go to prison. At the conference, Ridge was leaning on choosing Steffy when Ivy stated she'd like to give it a shot. Steffy and Ridge were initially concerned but Wyatt backed her up and Thomas spoke up and agreed that Ivy would be better because people are still talking about the incident with Aly. Steffy is angry with Thomas and he informed her about the blackmail and the video.

Sheila pulled her up and a grateful Taylor embraced Sheila and told Ridge about Sheila saving her life. Taylor even called Sheila one of them not knowing that Sheila almost killed her daughter and did kill her own son and Steffy's husband, Finn. When Steffy woke up everyone was overjoyed, but Sheila wasn't. Ridge asked Steffy who did this to her, but Steffy didn't remember. Sheila advised Ridge to not push Steffy for answers, all the while pretending that she's worried for Steffy's health. When Steffy saw Liam, she got emotional and started calling him her husband. When Liam informed everyone about Steffy's amnesia, Taylor and Bridget didn't recommend Liam telling Steffy the truth right away, much to Hope and Brooke's displeasure. During a conversation with Liam, Steffy remembered Kelly and said she wanted to go home to her. Liam was worried when he realized that Steffy does not remember her son Hayes. Steffy asked to see Kelly so after a conversation with Hope, Liam went to get her. When Hope went inside her room, Steffy was susprised because they didn't always get along. Hope asked Steffy if she remembers anything about the night she was shot or anything before it happened. Steffy said she remembers her home and her family with Liam and Kelly. Hope replied that her family is so much bigger and they will all support her. When Liam arrived with Kelly, Steffy was surprised by how big Kelly was. Steffy told Hope, she wanted some time alone with her daughter and husband. When Hope left Steffy's hospital room, Steffy told them that she loved them as Hope watched them from behind the door. Sheila, being scared that Steffy will remember, she tried to mess with her medical equipment when Taylor walked into the room and made Sheila's attempt to murder Steffy, impossible. Steffy was again questioned, this time by detective Bradley Baker, but she wasn't able to remember anything.
Steffy mourning Finn's Supposed Death
Bridget told Liam, Hope, Brooke, Thomas and Ridge that Steffy's test results are good enough for her to hear the truth. Liam, Ridge, Thomas, Taylor and Sheila gathered around Steffy. Liam revealed that he is not her husband and that she has a child with Finn, her husband. Steffy got emotional when she remembered Finn and Hayes. She wanted to see them and asked where Finn is. When she heard that her husband was dead, she was shocked and cried. When Steffy was sleeping, Sheila again came to her room and thought about killing her or messing with her medication because either way, her problem would be solved. Liam felt that something was off and he entered Steffy's room. When he saw Sheila he confronted her about being there. Sheila was angry because she was again stopped from killing/harming Steffy.
Steffy went home after Bridget said that there was no need for her to stay at the hospital. She was happy to be reunited with her children, but still sad about Finn being gone. She looked at Finn's photos and cried. Kelly called Liam and asked him to come over. When Liam came to the cliff house, after Kelly went to bed, Steffy begged him to not leave her alone for the night because it's her first night without Finn and she doesn't want to be alone. Liam agreed to stay with his ex wife which made Hope, his current wife very uncomfortable.
Remembering Sheila shot her and Finn
Sheila arrived at the cliff house and convinced Taylor to let her in using her grief over her son and wanting to see her grandson Hayes as an excuse. When Steffy saw Sheila, she became very irritated and nervous. While arguing with Sheila, Steffy's memory about the shooting started to come back to her. While she was still grappling with her memory, her father, Ridge came in to see Steffy, and he grew concerned about what was going on with her and especially after being told that Sheila had just left the cliff house. Finally Steffy started remembering more vividly. She then realized that Sheila was the one who shot her and killed her own son and her husband when he jumped in front of her to protect her from Sheila. After telling her parents about what she remembered, she asked them to get Sheila to come over. Taylor called Sheila and she came over thinking that she got a new chance to be in her grandson's life, but instead she was confronted by Steffy, Taylor and Ridge about what she has done. At first Sheila tried to pretend that she's innocent, but soon she confessed and tried to blame Steffy for Finn's death. She also confessed that she was the one that caused Brooke Logan's relapse and that Thomas Forrester knew about it. Taylor didn't want to believe that her son kept a secret from them, but Steffy confirmed that she remembers that too. What Sheila didn't know is that the police was listening to her confession the whole time. She has been captured and taken to jail. Steffy was satisfied to see Sheila being dragged away by the police, but she had a very hard time coping with her husband's death and she wanted to celebrate Finn's life by organizing a memorial service for him. Steffy invited Finn's adoptive mother Li Finnegan over but she didn't want to hear about organizing a memorial service for Finn and didn't tell Steffy where Finn's ashes are. Steffy was even more heartbroken when Li brushed her off. Steffy's mother told her that she should take her children and travel as it might help her to grieve far away from all the painful memories. Steffy was torn because to her it felt like leaving Finn, but eventually she decided to take Kelly and Hayes to France.
