Liam: Okay, first, get–

Thomas: Okay.

Liam: Okay, first, get– get your hands off my wife. What the hell?

Steffy: I am so proud of you. Truly.

Taylor: You know, we all are.

Ridge: Yeah?

Taylor: Yeah.

Ridge: So, you’re not upset that I stayed away so long?

Steffy: So you and bill could send sheila to prison for the rest of her life? No, I– I forgive your absence.

Taylo okay, well, I have to say that I am– I’m not a huge fan of the entire strategy.

Ridge: Okay, and– and I hated that we couldn’t tell you what was going on, but it was too big a risk. I hope you get that. And I’m so sorry for all the heartache that we put you through.

Taylor: Thank you for the apology, but this is definitely an “end justifies the means” situation.

Steffy: Assuming they do. I mean, sheila isn’t exactly behind bars just yet.

Ridge: If she makes it to a hospital, that’s exactly where she’s gonna be. She confessed. It’s all recorded.

Taylor: Ah! Job well done. All of you. But I don’t want to talk about sheila anymore, okay?

Steffy: Oh, my gosh. Or ever again.

Ridge: Yeah, no, I think you’re right. Let’s– let’s talk about something else. I had a conversation with thomas and I was impressed.

Taylor: Did you clear the air?

Ridge: I think that’s gonna take a minute, but he seemed honest and sincere and um… I’m glad he’s working at forrester again. Although, I have to say, I’m a little surprised that he’s working at hope for the future, knowing how liam feels about the two of them working together.

Liam: Are you okay?

Hope: Yes. Liam, this isn’t–

Liam: This is exactly what I was afraid of. I swear to god.

Thomas: Hey, you got it all wrong.

Liam: No, you’ve got it all wrong if you think you could touch my wife!

Hope: Liam, what are you doing?

Liam: If you ever, ever do that again, you sick son of a bitch, I swear to god.

Thomas: You have to calm down, all right? This is not what you think.

Liam: What I think is what I saw. Leave, now.

Thomas: My name is on the building.

Liam: I don’t care! Get the hell out!

[ Liam panting ] I can’t– I can’t– I can’t do this anymore. I– I’ve been so supportive, I’ve been taking care of you and the kids, I don’t deserve to come in here and see you on the couch with your hands on each other. How much more am I expected to take, hope? (Wheezing)

Ridge: Things are going well so far with thomas and hope.

Steffy: So far. They do make quite the good team.

Taylor: Yeah, and she knows it. Otherwise, she never would’ve let him back on her line.

Steffy: Because hope sees what we do, that thomas is making improvements. He’s taking steps. Positive steps to better himself.

Taylor: Oh, howdy.

Thomas: Mom, hi. Didn’t know you’d be here.

Taylor: Yeah, well, some of my favorite people hang out here. What is it?

Ridge: Something wrong?

Thomas: Um, I’m not sure.

Steffy: What does that mean?

Thomas: Uh, hope was modelling one of my latest designs. She was up on the riser and um, I was making adjustments.

Steffy: Thomas, what did you do?

Thomas: Nothing. I– I– I– I caught her. She fell off the riser and I broke her fall.

Taylor: Okay, that– that doesn’t sound like such a bad thing.

Thomas: Right, it doesn’T. It’s not a bad thing other than she– when she fell, she fell into me and uh, we fell into the couch, and then liam walked in to the door.

Steffy: Oh.

Thomas: He was angry. He was blinded by his hatred for me and started yelling and then told me I need to leave and uh, so instead of escalating the situation, I left. The old me would not have done that.

Ridge: And he didn’t let you explain at all?

Thomas: No, but I can’t exactly fault him for that. I mean, look, what I’ve done in the past with his wife, him looking out for her, of course he reacted that way.

Steffy: So, you– you promise that this is completely innocent, right?

Thomas: I promise.

Taylor: And liam probably thinks you orchestrated the whole thing, right?

Thomas: Yeah, yeah, probably. Hope is over there. She’s talking to him right now. Hopefully, she can help him see the truth in the situation. I just hope this doesn’t cause issues in their marriage.

Hope: Liam, please let me explain.

Liam: What did– what– what is there to explain? I called this. I totally called this.

Hope: What you walked in on is not at all what you think it is.

Liam: Really? ‘Cause what I think I walked in on was you two on the couch with his hands all over you.

Hope: Because I fell. We were in a fitting and I was up on that riser and I lost my balance and I started to fall, thomas tried to catch me and we both fell. So that– that is what you walked in on. But really, honestly, the most hurtful part about that reaction was the fact that you think I would willingly put myself in that position.

Liam: Do you really not understand how that looked?

Hope: You wanna know what it looks like? It looks like I have a husband who does not trust me. I mean me, after all of these years, and– and one that is so ready to jump to the– to the craziest, most incorrect conclusion because you’ve decided that thomas is not capable of change. I mean, you were just so chomping at the bit for him to mess up. But really, what takes the cake is that you think that I, little me, don’t know how to handle myself around him. I mean, liam, you talk about being supportive and what you’ve had to endure? Well, what about me? What about everything that I have had to endure? The trust that I have had to put into you? After everything you’ve done in the past? Let’s talk about that?

Liam: I don’t know what to say here. How many times have I told you that it’s not you I don’t trust. It’s never been you. Okay, let’s say this time is innocent. What about the next time? Or the time after that? Or the time after that because hope, it’s a-coming. It’s coming, unless you hold up a hand and you say enough is enough. The man is toxic and he has to go.

Hope: Okay, all right. So, I’m just supposed to, you know, lose my line because my husband–

Liam: Because I don’t trust him and neither should you! Why on earth would you trust him at this point? He knew beth was alive! He watched us grieve and he said nothing! Because that is how far he is willing to go to have you and he’s proven it. The man is and always has been demented!

Hope: He’s not that man. And you are acting as if my word carries no weight. I have told thomas that if I see him start to backslide into that version of himself, he is gone. And I mean it. But liam, guess what? I don’t think it’s gonna happen. I don’t because I believe he has changed and the time that we spend together is strictly professional, that is it. The real thing… is why… why don’t you believe me?

Liam: Because you keep finding new reasons to invite him into your life. Why do you do that? Why do you do that? Hi, I’m katie, I’ve lost 110 pounds

Steffy: If liam’s freaking out, it could change hope’s mind about working with you.

Thomas: Yeah, and I’m sure he’s trying to convince her to take me off the line right now. And hopefully, she can– she can speak that truth into him and he can see the situation for what it is.

Taylor: You know what? At this point, it sounds like more of a hope and liam situation and you can’t control that. You just need to remember that– that we believe in you and we know the changes that you’ve made and we have your back, always.

Ridge: We’ve got your back because I think you’re on the right path for the first time in a long time. So don’t let liam or hope or anyone throw you off it. You can do this.

Thomas: That means the world to me. I mean, I– I made a lot of mistakes, but… without your faith in me, all of you, I never would have moved past that. You know, I– I made a lot of horrible mistakes and I turned into a wretched person, but I had to be able to put that out on the table. I had to put my obsession with hope, my lies, my manipulations, everything that I used to participate in, that– that ate at me from the inside and I let it all out and it was really hard to do that, but I finally put that down and I realized that that doesn’t define me. It’s not who I am and that’s thanks to your love. You’ve shown me that I don’t always be that. I can be something so much better and I love you all for it, and none more than you, mom, because you… you’re the glue that holds this family together, you know? You make us a team.

Ridge: Team taylor? Is it too soon or?

Thomas: No. Team taylor. And I’ll say it again because you won’t say it about yourself. Team taylor.

Taylor: I love you.

Thomas: I love you too.

Hope: Do you even need to ask that? Why I was put in this position where I need the one designer who’s proven that he can make hope for the future a huge success?

Liam: I know what hope for the future means to you. I know the blood and sweat and tears that you’ve put into it. It’s your baby. It’s your legacy, but that’s the thing. It’s your legacy, not thomas’. Yours.

Hope: I had no other choice. I mean, you know what I was facing, steffy pulling my line.

Liam: What you were facing was an obstacle. Steffy is smart enough to know this. She’s smart enough to know that there are other designers out there, but thomas happens to be her brother and she’s loyal to him. You don’t need him. You don’T.

Hope: Yes, I do. Because we are hope for the future now.

Liam: Oh, my god. Don’t– don’t say that. Don’t say we. Do you hear– do you know what that implies?

Hope: A working relationship, liam. That is it. It’s not personal. It’s just business.

Liam: Can we just go home?

Hope: Home? Liam, it’s the middle of the day and I– I still have work to do.

Liam: With him?

Hope: With thomas, yes.

Liam: Okay.

Hope: Liam. Liam.

Liam: It’s okay.

Hope: Liam.

[ Elevator dinging ]

Taylor: So team taylor, huh?

Thomas: That’s right. Better and stronger than ever.

Ridge: Well.

Steffy: Couldn’t agree more, especially now that sheila is out of our lives for good.

Ridge: Ding, dong, the witch is dead. And you know what? I’m thrilled about that, but I’m thrilled about something else. I look into your eyes and I see something that I haven’t seen before, and I’m not sure what it is, but it seems to me that the little boy is gone and there’s maturity. Do you see it? Look.

Thomas: I– I– you know what? I think you’re right. Because I– I feel a change. I am a different person and uh, I appreciate you all seeing it too.

Steffy: Happens to the best of us.

Thomas: And I’m gonna make you all proud. I promise that. And hope too.

Taylor: Okay, well, I don’t know about hope, but you’ve already made me proud.

Ridge: Here, here.

Taylor: Yes.

Thomas: Should we– yes, let’s do it.

Taylor: Bring it in.

Thomas: All right. Okay. Awkward family hug done. I am gonna–

Ridge: Where are you going?

Thomas: Well, I’m still a designer for this company, last time I checked, and so until hope tells me otherwise, I got some designing to do.

Brooke: Most of my life,

I felt like I’ve needed a man,

and usually, it’s been the

wrong man.

Liam: Get your hands

off my wife.

I don’t trust him and neither

should you! Why on earth

would you trust him

at this point?

He knew beth was alive!

He watched us grieve

and he said nothing

because that is how far

he is willing to go to have you

and he’s proven it.

The man is and always has

been demented!

Don’t say we. Do you hear–

do you know what that implies?

Hope: A working

relationship, liam

and that is it.

It’s not personal,

it’s just business.

Brooke: I’m just happy

you haven’t been drawn

to the bad boy like I have.

You, my sweet, precious

daughter, you don’t like

the bad boys.

Thomas: Hope.

[ Hope sighing ] You okay?

Hope: Um, yeah, yeah. I’m fine. What’s up?

Thomas: Okay, well, um, I– I’ve got some news. The reviews are in.

Hope: For hope for the future?

Thomas: They’re good. They’re really good.

Hope: Seriously?

Thomas: Yeah. All right. “The forrester dream team has done it again. Thomas forrester and hope logan fit and compliment each other perfectly.” That’s just one of many. I mean, every last review is positive.

Hope: Thomas, you have no idea how much I needed to hear that.

Thomas: It’s all because of you.

Hope: Aw, you too. Thank you for all of your hard work, everything you’ve done for the line.

Thomas: Well, couldn’t have done it without you. I mean, you gave me another chance. You allowed me to– to come back and work here again. Now, I have this overwhelming sense of gratitude and enthusiasm and I owe that all to you.

Hope: Thank you. I mean, it’s all right there in the review. We do make a really great team, and in spite of what liam or anyone else says, we can do this. We got this. I know we do.
