It would actually be pretty interesting to do that. It would be something new and realistic and would add a very different dynamic to that typical gay storyline that we've all seen on soaps.
Bill Bell loved to do two siblings in love with the same person. That could be done here as well.
I know right.
To have been a murder mystery would have required Liam be murdered with Steffy, Finn, Hope, and Thomas as suspects all fed up with his wishy washness and interference in their lives only to have a deranged Ivy return and be the real killer lol.
