The CW's official character description: "Liam’s fiancé. Bret is genuinely in love with Liam – but he thinks Manhattan is the place to be, and that he and Liam should lead a swellegant life where the only horses are in Central Park."
In Back in The Saddle, Liam waits for Walker at the restaurant but Bret shows up instead, as he knew Walker wouldn’t show. Bret can’t believe Liam is still surprised that Walker didn’t show. He loves Liam but just wants him to shun his family and be with him instead - in New York. He assures Liam that his family is allowed to visit them. Liam, however, isn’t keen on leaving Austin.
