Steffy: Did I forward you that invitation?

Liam: To what? Oh, to josephine’s birthday party? Yeah, I just keep meaning to ask kelly what she wants to get her.

Steffy: No, sky’s birthday. Also on your weekend.

Liam: Oh, my god. Why is our daughter so damn popular? She was invited to everything.

Steffy: I know, right? And the answer is a hockey stick for josephine and something sloth like for sky.

Liam: Sloth like?

Steffy: Yeah, she’s obsessed with them.

Liam: Oh, wow. Okay. Uh, yeah, I should– I should be able to make it there, like barely right after the– um, soccer match.

Steffy: Okay. Well, uh, let me know if you need help. I don’t want to step on your time, but I should be available.

Liam: No, no. Actually, uh, I might take you up on that just because, you know, hope’s been working overtime on the line, and I’ll probably be juggling three kids.

Steffy: Yeah. But it is nice to see hope motivated. Thomas too. I mean, there’s so much that has to be done before the next showing. They’re actually in a meeting right now.

Liam: Hm, imagine that?

Steffy: Am I hearing a tone?

Liam: No. Yeah, a little bit. Look, I don’t wanna– I don’t wanna be that husband.

Steffy: But…

Liam: But thomas is your brother, I know you love him, but you would be straight with me, right?

Steffy: Yeah, always.

Liam: Is he okay?

Hope: These numbers are higher than expected.

Charlotte: Yeah. I mean, it’s still a bit too soon to call it a complete turnaround from where we were a few months ago, but the early numbers are definitely promising.

Paris: Are we surprised though with thomas back on the line?

Thomas: Ha, ha, ha. No, no, no, this isn’t because of me. Hope for the future is a team effort. Zende, especially, your contribution hasn’t gone unnoticed. I mean, you’re as pivotal now as you were before I came back.

Zende: I appreciate that. But let’s give credit where credit’s due. No one, and I mean no one, shares hope’s vision the way you do and communicates it to us. You get her and her line better than anyone.

Paris: And the new promotional material?

Charlotte: Three days at the most, but I can push for two.

Paris: Okay, great. I’ve got several people asking.

Hope: Oh, that actually reminds me. I did get your email and thank you for putting that list together on such short notice because I would like to partner with all of them. I mean, they all seem worthwhile.

Paris: Yeah? Great. When you said you wanted new and dynamic charities attached to this line, I was a little bit worried about finding the right fits.

Hope: Oh, you found them, and then some. I mean, they all have such amazing positive messaging and that’s exactly what hope for the future is about. So, needless to say, I’m thrilled.

Charlotte: Okay, that puts more pressure on me to get that material ready, but I’ll have it tomorrow.

Paris: Even better.

Zende: More pressure on you? How do you think thomas and I feel?

Hope: Hey, hey, you two have been doing a phenomenal job. I mean, I know I’ve been putting the pressure on you guys to get this next collection out, but it’s been remarkable watching you give it your all. Really inspired by the new direction we’re going in. And you have all been so dedicated and focused, and it means a lot knowing that you have my back.

Thomas: Well, I think I can speak for all of us and say that we’re the ones that are thrilled. We’re just all so thankful to be working on the line.

Steffy: Is thomas okay?

Liam: Yeah, I– I’m just, um, I’m not trying to put you in an awkward position. I know he’s your brother and you want him to succeed obviously.

Steffy: Yeah, definitely.

Liam: And I respect that and more than that, I respect you as a businesswoman, but you’re the one who urged hope to bring thomas back on her line and I just, I got– I gotta think you wouldn’t have done that if you thought there was even a possibility that he’s not–

Steffy: No, no, they’re a successful team. A profitable one. And thomas is a really talented designer.

Liam: I know that. I’m not questioning that. I’m just– can he be professional? That’s the thing. Like, can– can thomas be content with– with a totally platonic, healthy working relationship with hope or is he already going down the same path he always goes down where he starts getting obsessed with my wife?

Liam: So, like, wait, I didn’t, just so you know, I wasn’t asking that out of nowhere. Like I– I walked in on something the other day–

Steffy: Ah yes, the infamous fall off the riser.

Liam: Oh, no. You heard about that?

Steffy: About your overreaction?

Liam: I– dude, no! I wasn’t– ugh. You should have seen it.

Steffy: Them tangled up on the couch. Yeah, I get it.

Liam: Okay, but no, but steffy, like what it looked like was bad.

Steffy: I’m sure it was completely innocent. He was helping break her fall.

Liam: Yeah, that has been made clear to me now.

Steffy: Okay, look, given thomas’s history, I do understand why you would be concerned, but–

Liam: But– but what? Are you saying I have a reason to be concerned?

Steffy: No, no, no–

Liam: Really? Are you sure, ’cause?

Steffy: No, not any more. I’m sure. I’m sure. I do believe thomas has made some real significant changes. I wouldn’t have asked hope to work with thomas otherwise.

Liam: Even if it was good business?

Steffy: Liam! I wouldn’t ask hope to work with thomas if I thought thomas was a danger to her. No, look at me. I would not put hope or your marriage at risk.

Liam: Okay.

Charlotte: Thomas had a one track mind, all about you, but I can really see a change in him. He’s different. He’s– he’s a really good guy.

Hope: Yeah, I couldn’t agree more.

Thomas: Hey, uh, tell me you heard from that guy from paris. You’re waiting on a really big order?

Hope: Fingers crossed, we will hear from him today.

Thomas: Great.

Zende: Hey, guys, I’m gonna head down to the sewing room. I want to make sure that they got that fabric change we were discussing.

Hope: All right, thank you, zende, appreciate it.

Zende: You got it.

Hope: Bye.

Paris: We are getting responses. Two charities confirmed already.

Hope: Seriously? That’s amazing.

Paris: And they have questions. Lots of them. Looks like I got phone calls to make. You’ll check on that promotional material?

Charlotte: I’m on it.

Paris: Bye.

Charlotte: And thomas, I just wanted to say that it’s so great having you back. Your talent and your energy. Let me know if you ever want to look over projections together.

Thomas: Sounds good.

Charlotte: Okay, we’ll set something up.

Thomas: I’m, uh, I’m glad we’re alone.

Hope: You are?

Thomas: Yeah, there’s something I wanted to say to you. I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate what you said. It means a lot coming from you. Telling me that I’m doing a great job because I respect you. I respect you so much. I respect your work, the line. I also respect your message, and I promise I respect your marriage. Hi, I’m eileen.

Liam: I mean, don’t get me wrong, like I wanna believe you. I wanna be as confident as you are that thomas is just fine around hope.

Steffy: It’s just that history suggests otherwise? I understand your hesitation.

Liam: Well, yeah, I mean, like, it wasn’t even that long ago that you had to take a hard line with the guy, like you kicked him out of the company.

Steffy: I did, yeah, I promised thomas that he wouldn’t be working on hope’s line. He wasn’t even allowed here in this building. If I thought thomas was the same man he used to be, lying and manipulating, I would not expose hope to that kind of trauma. And I– and I wouldn’t put her or your marriage in harm’s way.

Liam: I know. You really think he’s changed?

Steffy: Yeah, I do.

Liam: It’s just, like, he’s made this claim before, you know that he’s all better now and we know what happened then or what always happens. I’m not, I– I sound like I’m not trying to trash your brother. In fact, I’m really happy that you’re confident about him. I just… okay, let’s say this is legit, right? And he really is working on himself. He’s trying to be a better man. Things can go wrong. Like what if it doesn’t last? What– what– what does that mean for hope then? And I wanna– I want to trust my wife’s instincts and I definitely don’t wanna be like a controlling husband.

Steffy: That is not who you are. I know you. The husband that you are is kind, nurturing and supportive. And hope knows that too, liam. How could she not?

Thomas: You know, I feel like we have finally made it to higher ground. You know, at a place of mutual respect and understanding.

Hope: It does feel that way, doesn’t it? It’s about time.

Thomas: Oh, it’s about time, all right. It is. Finally moving on from the past and– and the way that I was, my issues, and now we’re working together and parenting douglas, and I actually feel normal, you know. And so I’m– I’m proud of that progress.

Hope: I’m proud of it too. It’s been a long road.

Thomas: It has. But how I feel about you now? Well… it’s– my feelings for you are so much stronger and better and– and more mature than they ever were before. I mean, look, I– I– I thought that I was the answer to your problems. I thought that I was the person for you and that I could make you happy. But now I realize, I know, that it’s not me. Obviously, it’s liam. You guys are so happy together and you being happy, it brings me so much joy. And for a while, I was so sure about you and that led me to doing some pretty terrible things, um, things I regret. But at the same time that– that humbles me, you know, and that makes me turn into a better person. And this is just a really long winded way of me trying to tell you that I am so thankful for you and you being willing to give me another chance in your life, and it’s just– it’s a testament to the kind of person that you really are.

Hope: Wow. Well, um, you’re welcome, but I believe there is the right woman out there for you somewhere, especially now that you’ve done all this introspection and made all these changes to your life. I think even, hey, you might be ready for a relationship.

Thomas: Ooh.

Hope: You gotta lot of love to give, thomas.

Thomas: You think she’s out there, huh? The woman for me?

Hope: Oh, I know she is. It’s just maybe you haven’t met her yet? Or maybe you have? Perhaps even, she’s here at forrester?

Thomas: Do you have someone in mind?

Hope: I don’t know. I pick up on a vibe sometimes with you and paris.

Thomas: With paris? No, if there’s a vibe, it’s just a friendly one.

Hope: Uh, okay. Well, uh, what about sloan?

Thomas: The model?

Hope: She asked you out for drinks the other day?

Thomas: Yeah. No, she’s– she’s really cute. It’s just, you know, I, um, I think it would be fun, but the woman for me? Eh.

Hope: Okay, all right, fine. So, you don’t want an office romance, clearly. Uh, but I’m sure you must go out from time to time.

Thomas: You know what? It’s just– it’s not good timing right now.

Hope: Oh, so you’re too busy to date?

Thomas: You said it yourself. I mean, we have so much to do.

Hope: Okay, yes. But a date or two isn’t going to derail hope for the future or your inner progress, right?

Thomas: You’re starting to sound more like my mom.

Hope: Huh. Well, you know what? Taylor’s a doctor, so i will take that as a compliment.

Thomas: Okay, okay. Look, I am– I am excited to find the woman for me, right? And I– I do want that.

[Indistinct] In the potential, who knows, near future, but right now, that’s not what I’m focused on. I’m focused on work and– and creating the best line humanly possible. And honestly, I’m glad I’m doing it with you because I– I don’t think I could be doing the caliber of work that I’m doing with anyone else.

Hope: Thomas, I’m sure you could collaborate with anyone. I mean, especially now.

Thomas: Now that I’ve gotten past my, let’s call them rough patches? There were a few. Yeah. But I– I am glad that my, uh, crazy thought days are over.

Liam: You sure you’re okay?

Hope: Well, thomas, just because you have crazy thoughts, doesn’t mean you need to act on them.

Thomas: Had, not have. I– my, my crazy thought days are over.

Liam: Well, listen, I, um, I appreciate you lending an ear and I appreciate your support. I know you’ve got much better things to do than listen to me drone on and on about your brother, so.

Steffy: Hey, what could be more important?

Liam: Um, I don’t know, maybe the whole like running a company thing.

Steffy: Yeah. That’s true.

[ Liam laughing ]

Liam: It was a good talk. Thank you.

Steffy: Of course. I know you’re worried about this and I just don’t want you to bottle it up. So know that you can– you can talk to me, any time. Your happiness is important to me.

Liam: I’d be a lot happier if I had your confidence. There’s nothing to be concerned about.

Steffy: Life is full of concerns, but mostly small ones, like getting to birthdays and soccer games. Try not to stress about things that aren’t even there. I– I get it. But honestly, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to thomas and hope.

Thomas: What is it?

Liam: What’s wrong?

Hope: Just because you

have a crazy thought, doesn’t

mean you have to act on it.

Liam: You sure you’re okay?

Hope: That can never happen. [ Echoing ] Never. That can never happen. [ Echoing] Never. That can never happen. [ Echoing ] Never.
