Bill has been resting comfortably on the back burner in recent months on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL but now he’s gone from the frying pan into the fire as his attempts to reconnect with Brooke and Katie have failed miserably. (Probably wasn’t the best decision to go telling Katie she’s the only woman he’ll ever love immediately after using the same lines on Brooke!)
“For months, Bill has been trying to be a better man and all of his efforts have gone nowhere,” Don Diamont said in a recent issue of Soap Opera Digest. “Bill is in a really bad place, personally.”
And Liam wasn’t the only one who noticed Bill’s new look — viewers instantly recognized the distinctive sword necklace around his neck which everyone knows carries with it a terrible connotation. “Historically, the necklace was an object and a manifestation of who Bill is and how Bill saw himself,” the actor explained. “He was a pirate. He took no prisoners. When he took it off, it was a big deal, and now he puts it back on because he feels things are crumbling around him.”
Still, while donning the sword necklace indicates a new, darker side of Dollar Bill coming back out, the man’s goals remain the same… even if now he may now go about achieving them in a very different way!
“There are many factors that have gone into this decision,” Diamont revealed, “but in the back of Bill’s mind, he still does believe that if he can get his family back, then that will save him and he can avoid falling into a deep, dark chasm, where he has never been before.”
Stay tuned to B&B to see if Bill lives by the sword… or dies by the sword! (Figuratively, of course!)
