At Brooke’s house, Hope looks for a favorite doll of Beth’s that’s missing. Brooke comes in, so she tells her about it. Brooke tries to console Hope, who’s putting on a brave face for the sake of her family. Predictably, Brooke blames Steffy for not turning Liam away. Brooke has faith that Hope and Liam will stay together, no matter what. Hope goes to help Liam look for the doll. Meanwhile, Thomas tells Liam that he saw the missing doll in the kitchen because Beth and Donna were playing in a tea party earlier. Liam wonders why he’s still there, since he’s done recuperating. That argue about Hope and Steffy. Thomas points out all the things that Liam did wrong that night. Hope walks in while Thomas is asking how he thinks Hope feels. Hope tells them that she doesn’t know how she feels. She’s not sure how she’ll be able to forgive him if Steffy’s baby is his. Liam confesses that he’s not the same man he used to be. He needs to earn her trust back with his actions, and it’ll take time. He won’t ask for her forgiveness any more. He asks her for a chance to prove that he’s worth forgiveness. She sobs at his words.
At Forrester, Steffy chats with Ridge in their office about some work things, but she loses her train of thought. Ridge knows how that feels and asks if she needs a break. She has some bad news for him. She tells him about sleeping with Liam and her pregnancy. He’s surprised and also shocked that Brooke knows. Also at Forrester, Paris talks to someone on the phone about her foundation work. Zoe walks in and demands that she hang up. Paris reluctantly asks to call the person back. Zoe insists on talking about Carter, who is close to dumping her forever. Zoe tells her about Ridge seeing her with Zende, and how he spilled the tea to Carter. Now Carter wants to end their relationship. Zoe can’t believe how she screwed all this up. She blames Paris for telling Ridge that she was after Zende. Paris denies that and says that Ridge just got a hunch about them. They argue.
