She’s been away in Paris for a few months dealing with work, but has now returned home to L.A. However, when Steffy gets back to town, she will be stunned to learn just how much things have changed on the Thursday, May 23 episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) latest manipulation against Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton) worked on the CBS soap, as she believed that the letter he found was really from Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) and was about her stepping in to be a mother to Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri). As a result, Hope decided to end her marriage to Liam, so she could do what she feels is right for Douglas, while he has a chance to reunite with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and be a full-time father to Kelly and Phoebe. However, Steffy will be stunned when she comes home from Paris and hears what Liam tells her.

“Steffy and the girls are back in Los Angeles and Liam gives Steffy stunning news,” spoilers reveal.

The news may be especially jarring for Steffy because while a part of her has always loved Liam and never stopped, she is the one who encouraged Hope and Liam to be together, and refused to let Hope end her marriage before, as she grieved Beth’s death. Even more so, she may be stunned to learn just how much of a role her own brother played in the couple’s separation.

Meanwhile, Thomas may wind up learning that his attempts worked, but could also get some warning words from his father, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), about his decision to interfere in someone else’s relationship. Meanwhile, despite being the one who decided to end her marriage, Hope will seek comfort over her marriage ending from her mother, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang).

“Ridge gives Thomas advice and Hope received comfort from Brooke,” spoilers reveal.

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