Bb Bill Liam
Already not a big fan of his father because he went to extremes (arson and demolition) to put Spectra out of business, nearly killing him and Sally in the process, Liam hates Bill even more after learning that he slept with Steffy. Sure, her baby is Liam’s, but that’s small comfort as he simply can’t get the image of his wife and his father together out of his head!
Bb Bill Wyatt
After Bill dumped Liam for being a goody two-shoes, Wyatt became the favorite Spencer son. But that all changed when he announced his engagement to Katie. Bill immediately disowned Wyatt and threatened Katie, leaving the young man determined to protect his new relationship at all costs. But how far would he go for Katie?
Bb Bill Justin
Once Bill had disowned his sons, he decided to name Justin as the one to take over the company in case something should happen to him. That would give Justin quite the motivation to get Bill out of the picture!
Bb Katie Bill
She may have married the guy, but the way Bill has treated her over the years has made sure she’s not one of the guy’s biggest fans. And when he threatened to take custody of their son, Will, away from her, she flew into a panic at the very thought of losing her boy. Could that fear make her do something desperate?
Bb Jarret Bill
This reporter had been doing Bill’s dirty work for years, but recently had been pushing back when asked to write something he didn’t agree with. So Bill fired him, leaving the guy unemployed… and angry. Angry enough to try to kill him?
Bb Sally Bill Gun
When biased reporting couldn’t put Spectra Fashions out of business, Bill resorted to arson. And when that didn’t quite work, he decided to evict the company and demolish the building so he could build his precious skyscraper, Skye! Sally was caught in the rubble with Liam and barely escaped with her life, and has been gunning for Bill ever since. Sometimes literally!
Bb Ridge Bill
Constantly at odds with Bill, Ridge earned a victory when he managed to steal Brooke back from him. But the news that Dollar Bill had slept with Steffy both disgusted and enraged Ridge to the point where they had some very physical fights! How far would Ridge go to protect his daughter’s honor?
Bb Eric Crying Quinn
News of Bill and Steffy’s affair hit Eric very hard, and he’s sort of come undone at how Bill has damaged his family. But would the patriarch really resort to murder to make things right?
Bb Quinn Bill
As one of Bill’s exes, Quinn knows first-hand just how low the guy can sink. And while disgusted as many of his recent actions, she was especially incensed when Bill decided to cut Wyatt out of his inheritance. This mama bear has teeth, and she’s used them before — has she done so again?
While Pam has been on the straight and narrow for a while now, there was a time when she would do anything to protect her sister, Stephanie. And now she feels the same way about her namesake, Steffy, but would she get violent again? When Pam is off her meds, anything is possible!
Bb Steffy Ridge Sheila Bill Justin
No stranger to murder, Sheila has been looking for a way to get back in Eric’s good books. Could she possibly have thought that taking Bill out would ingratiate her to the Forresters? It’s a crazy idea, but come on — look who we’re talking about here!
Bb Thomas Bill
Bill's attempts to put Sally out of business didn't endear him to Thomas, who was dating the redhead at the time. But since the Forrester heir was also bankrolling Spectra, Bill decided to get Thomas out of the way by convincing Caroline to lie to him that she was dying, forcing him to leave Sally as he went to New York to spend her "final" days with their son. However, now that Thomas knows all about the cruel deception, did he return to take his revenge?
Bb Caroline Bill
Honestly, Caroline should have known better than to go along with Bill's lie that she was dying just to steal Thomas away from Sally. But she did, and when she couldn't maintain the charade any longer, he dumped her to return to the redhead. Now, with Caroline's life in shambles, she's focusing her blame on Bill!
