Steffy gave her everything she wanted when she revealed she was no longer going to fight for Liam. However, after realizing that Liam isn’t as ecstatic about their potential engagement as she is, Hope will demand answers about what their future holds on the Tuesday, August 7 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

After deciding not to go through with marrying Bill (Don Diamont), Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) told Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) that she was no longer going to fight to be with him, and instead change her focus to be on herself and her daughter, Kelly. To make her point clear, Steffy took the ring Liam previously gave her on the CBS soap off of her own finger and placed it on Hope’s, telling her to be a good bride, wife, and mother of his child, and vowing that they would all work together to be good examples as parents to their children—something neither she nor Hope had growing up as their mother consistently battled over Ridge (Thorsten Kaye).

However, though Hope was excited about the possibility of being Liam’s wife being handed back to her again, she has since realized that Liam isn’t on the same page, and after he reveals that Steffy giving Hope a ring in his place was going too far, Hope will question if he even wants to have a future with her, or if Steffy officially closing the book on their history has made him realize who he really wants to be with.

“You know, it wouldn’t be fair to me to let me go on wearing this ring on my finger if a married future with me is not what you want,” she says in a preview clip for the episode.

Meanwhile, as she continues moving past the heartache she experienced with Liam, Steffy will move forward with her other plans, which include what will happen with Forrester. Though she has temporarily decided not to do anything to Hope For The Future in retaliation towards Hope, she has opted to bring back the hotly contested Forrester lingerie line. Now, as she meets with Thorne (Ingo Rademacher), who just recruited Zoe (Kiara Barnes) as a model for the line, she will reveal how her personal choices will influence the decisions she makes as both company co-CEO, and lead model for the new line.

“I choose the life I want for my daughter and me,” she says in the clip.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” airs weekdays at 1:30 p.m. EDT on CBS.
