‘The Bold and the Beautiful’: Fans Want Steffy to Move On With an Old Flame and It’s Not Liam

Viewers are eager to know what will happen to Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline Wood) after her husband, John “Finn” Finnegan’s death. It seems The Bold and the Beautiful star might rekindle an old flame with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). Fans want Steffy to start a romance, but not with Liam. So, who could replace Finn in Steffy’s life?

Steffy and Liam: ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ reunion that would likely hit the rocks

Fans were shocked when Sheila Carter shot Finn and Steffy, killing Finn. Steffy, on the other hand, survived. But she’ll likely go through a period of mourning before giving her heart to another. Many viewers believe Liam will be Steffy’s next heartthrob with Finn out of the way.  

Liam has been there for Steffy since the incident. He took her to the hospital to save her life and has been close to her bed ever since, hoping she survives. It shows that Liam still loves Steffy despite being married to Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) — a love triangle that some viewers were happy to see end on prior seasons.

Liam may try at all costs to win Steffy’s heart again. If he succeeds, the relationship may fail, paving the way for a new twist.

There will always be fans who want to see Steffy and Liam become lovers again. However, more viewers wish to see a short-lived affair. Some fans still want to see how Steffy deals with an old ex again.

Liam, Hope, and Steffy always seem to exist in a love triangle. Instead of returning to an old lover, Steffy might wow her fans with another love stunt.

She and Liam have a long history together, even as viewers talk about their never-dying chemistry. Bill seems to be alone for now. Brooke Logan (Katherine Lang) is looking forward to ending the rift with Ridge Forrester. Bill once wanted Katie Logan to return, but Katie seems to have a better life without Bill.

Despite Katie’s love for Bill, she wants to spend her life with someone who can offer 100% commitment to her. Bill can’t be an option here because of his history of failing to keep promises

A cold foot for Liam but a shocking reunion with Deacon

Fans are against another heated romance between Steffy and Liam. Many viewers want an end to their decade-long but wacky relationship. Liam is undoubtedly helpful to Steffy, but she may not be quick to love him again.

Steffy can still recall how things went between her and Hope, possibly seeking a more peaceful relationship. Now fans beg to know who the next guy in line is. Though there are not many options among guys in the show, Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) could become her soulmate.  

Deacon and Steffy have crossed paths in the past. His kiss with Logan was why she ended her marriage to Ridge Forrester. Despite that, she might change her mind upon learning how Deacon rescued her.  Steffy will appreciate Deacon’s effort, and friendship starts. A romance might ensue as Deacon helps her overcome Finn’s death shock.

Jacqueline Wood drops a hint about Steffy’s future

Though Steffy is not yet out of mourning, she can’t just say goodbye to romance. Steffy will fall for someone. In response to Soap Opera Digest, Wood teased,

“Steffy is still the best for him. She can make touch his heart in ways other people can’t. As built a wall around himself, others become fearful. She can’t change. So, when they meet, you can always see a thing between them. It’s not hard to say they are a perfect match when looking from that perspective.”
