[ Steffy laughing ]
Liam: Wait, did I– is that– go back, go back.
Liam: Did she– she pushed that kid. Kelly pushed that kid over.
Steffy: What can I say? Our daughter loves a scavenger hunt. But she did share her prize with all the other kids.
Steffy: She is such a determined little girl.
Liam: Yeah, she is. Now, who– who does that remind me of?
Steffy: I don’t know. It’s so weird. Yeah, she’s my mini-me for sure.
Liam: Thank you for that. I needed, uh, to laugh a little.
Steffy: Are you still stressing over thomas?
Liam: No. No, I’m not– it’s not that I’m– I– okay, maybe a little bit. I just– I want to support hope, right. I want to support her decision-making. I just– yeah, I don’t know if– if I can trust thomas around her here.
Thomas: 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. What did you decide on the fringe, hope?
Hope: Uh, huh? What?
Thomas: The, uh, the camel coat we talked about?
Hope: Oh, right. Um, right.
Thomas: Is everything okay?
[ Hope chuckling ]
Taylor: I am loving the menu here. Everything is just amazing, right? It’s, um, it’s decadent in all the best ways.
Brooke: And the company’s not so bad either.
Taylor: Very true. And the company’s about to get even better.
Hollis: Well, hello, ladies.
Brooke: Hi, hollis.
Hollis: It’s good to see you, both of you.
Taylor: Oh– oh, I exist today.
Hollis: How’s everything?
Brooke: Uh, the food is fabulous.
Hollis: Well, I’m glad you’re enjoying yourselves.
Taylor: I’m glad that brooke suggested that we come here. This has actually become one of our favorite restaurants. I can’t imagine why.
Hollis: I’ll send over some dessert later, on the house.
Taylor: Oh, that’s very sweet. So, do you, uh, send dessert over to all your return customers?
Hollis: Just the extra special ones.
Customer: Hey, hollis. I had a question about the wine list. I’m looking for something kind of smooth and velvety. Maybe stop by my table when you get a chance.
Hollis: Sure. Yeah.
Taylor: Mm, smooth and velvety.
Brooke: I guess some people come here for more than just the food and the wine.
Taylor: Yeah, I bet most of the customers come here to flirt with hollis, just like that one was doing.
Hollis: I didn’t notice. There’s only one woman who’s got my attention.
Steffy: Everyone is in a really good place, including my brother.
Liam: That’s what I keep hearing.
Steffy: Your skepticism makes sense. Thomas has given you a million reasons not to trust him. I get it.
Liam: But– but to your point, that’s the thing. I trust hope.
Liam: That should be the most important thing. So, what’s wrong with me? Why can’t I just focus on the fact that my wife knows what’s good for herself?
Steffy: Because you’re trying to protect someone you care deeply about. We all do that. I wouldn’t be saying this if I didn’t believe it. And I wouldn’t have pushed hope to work with thomas if I had seen any red flags.
Thomas: Are you okay?
Hope: Me? Yeah. Yeah, everything’s fine.
Thomas: You sure?
Hope: Yeah. It’s just, remember that conversation earlier?
Thomas: About crazy thoughts?
Hope: Yeah, I just– I might be having one of those moments. Man: I’m not slowing down anytime soon.
Taylor: Okay. All right. I know that you weren’t ready then, but I can see that you’re excited. I– let’s– let’s just review the highlights of your– of your dinner with hollis, okay? Okay, you had a gorgeous guy over. You laughed a lot and you made out.
Brooke: I wouldn’t say made out.
Taylor: Yes, you’re the one that said it was hot.
Brooke: It was.
Taylor: See, that’s what I’m talking about. I mean, I guess first kisses are always great, right?
Brooke: Especially with hollis.
Taylor: See, that’s the look I’m talking about. I–
[ Taylor clearing her throat ]
Hollis: Can I get you ladies anything?
Taylor: Um, I am good. Brooke, are you sure there’s not anything you want?
Brooke: No. No, I’m fine, thank you.
Hollis: Oh, brooke, you are so much more than fine. You are absolutely beautiful.
Taylor: Oh, would you look at that? I have a client that I need to call.
Brooke: Taylor. I’m– I’m sorry, she’s being so obvious.
Hollis: No, it’s okay, I actually kind of liked it. Do you mind if I sit for a minute?
Brooke: Sure. Go ahead.
Hollis: It’s really nice to see you, brooke.
Brooke: It’s nice to see you, hollis.
Hollis: Look, I know I should probably be playing this a little more cool, but um, god, I can’t stop thinking about you.
Brooke: Really? Really?
Steffy: You are in a tough position. You’re trying to honor hope’s wishes, respect her career while trying to keep her safe and your marriage healthy.
Liam: Yeah, I mean, I just don’t want thomas taking advantage of her kindness and generosity.
Steffy: And that’s a valid concern because he has in the past.
Liam: Yeah, well, I mean, he’s manipulated all of us at one point or another. But that’s– that’s– that’s why I have a hard time believing he’s just like, cured now. Like all of a sudden, he’s a well-adjusted stand-up guy.
Steffy: If it’s any consolation, he is laser-focused on work. He’s trying to put out the best line possible. And honestly, I don’t sense any weirdness from thomas towards hope.
Liam: Really? I– okay, I’m glad to hear you say that because the guy is getting to spend a lot of time alone with my wife. Oh, my god, listen to me right now. Like I sound so jealous.
Steffy: But you’re– but you’re not. You’re just a nurturing, concerned husband. There’s a big difference and hope understands that. She appreciates it. She appreciates you. We all do.
Thomas: You know I’ve had, uh, I’ve had my fair share of wild thoughts in the past. When your– your mind starts racing, your heart starts beating and I don’t know, it feels like you have this overwhelming anxiety. But I– I’m sure that my version of wild thought and our version of wild thought are very different. But, uh, now, I’m not thinking those kind of thoughts anymore, right. My wild thoughts are having to do with pushing the envelope when it comes to design, right? Like, uh, what do I do with the neckline? And if I do this, is it too much, right? If I add a sequin here, is that too much? If I– if I put ruffles here, is everyone gonna go mad?
Hope: Well, of course, they are because everybody hates ruffles. Don’t you know that?
[ Hope chuckling ]
Thomas: No, that was great. That was great. I’m so glad that we can laugh like this and you’re comfortable enough around me, you know? Um, there was a while where I wanted it all with you and um, now I’m just– I realize that what we have, it’s more than enough. I am so grateful you’re in my life.
Hope: I’m grateful for you too, thomas.
…I’m over 45.
Hollis: Look, brooke, I’m sorry if I’m being too forward, I am, but I had a really great time with you. And I know we only hung out once. And for all I know, it was some silly dare that taylor put you up to. And everyone says that ridge is your– your true love, but I don’t know. At the end of that night, that kiss that we shared, I’ve never experienced a kiss like that before.
Brooke: Oh, come on, hollis. You have girls falling at your feet everywhere flirting with you, like that– smooth and velvety back there.
Hollis: Yeah, well, what about you, brooke? I mean, come on, you’re this world-famous fashion industry icon. You got men falling at your feet left and right.
Brooke: Please, that’s nonsense.
Hollis: No, no, it’s not.
Steffy: I’ll need a report from international by tomorrow. Okay. Yes, absolutely. Yes, pilar will get back to me with a report. Mm-hmm. And a proposal. Yes. Yes, she will. Yeah, come on in. All department heads need to report to me. Thank you. Okay, bye bye.
Hope: You didn’t need to get off the phone.
Steffy: No, no, it’s fine, I was just finishing up.
Hope: Okay. Um, well, I actually was wondering if we could schedule a meeting to go over hope for the future’s latest designs because your brother is on quite the roll.
Steffy: That’s awesome. Yeah, he is really coming through for us.
Hope: He is. I mean, honestly steffy, I haven’t seen him this inspired in– well, ever, really.
Steffy: So, how are things outside of work?
Hope: Oh, uh, well, douglas being home has been wonderful, so thank you again for taking such great care of him.
Steffy: Absolutely, of course. And um, you and liam? I know that liam has some issues with you and thomas collaborating.
Hope: Yes and I wish that weren’t the case.
Steffy: I know, but he loves you and he’s just looking out for you and the kids.
Hope: No, I know. I know he means well. I just– I don’t think he’s ever going to be convinced that thomas isn’t the man that he used to be.
Steffy: Yeah, actually I– I was just– I was talking to liam and that is something he is struggling with.
Hope: Well, I mean, everyone has seen the leaps and bounds that thomas has made. I mean, not just me, but I know you’ve seen it. I mean, everyone here at work.
Steffy: Yeah, thomas is coping very nicely. Like he’s working well under pressure and honestly, I don’t see any of his old patterns re-emerging. And trust me, I am looking very closely.
Hope: Mm. And you made that clear to my husband?
Steffy: I told liam he has nothing to be concerned about when it comes to you and thomas. I’m right, aren’t I?
[ Knock on door ]
Thomas: Uh, if you’re looking for hope, I think she’s in with my sister.
Liam: Uh, no, actually I’m uh, here for you.
Thomas: Oh, all right. Uh, what’s up? Uh, here, my new design. You wanna check it– check it out?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah. That’s really good.
Thomas: Thanks. Um, I– I appreciate that. It’s– we’re trying some new things, you know. This is like a much more comfortable vibe and not just obviously with the– with the designs, but with the artistic process, everything. It’s like a whole new everything.
Liam: Including you?
Thomas: Yeah, I mean, I– I feel like I’m a completely different person. But you’re not buying it?
Liam: No, it’s– it’s not that, it’s just– it’s a little convenient, you know, given the last time and the time before.
Thomas: Well, hopefully at some point we can only focus on the future and not constantly be looking in the past.
Liam: Yeah, that’s actually, I was– I was just talking to steffy about this.
Thomas: Speaking of someone that, um, I’ve been growing with. I mean, I think, uh– hopefully, I’ve repaired our relationship a little bit. Um, she seems happy about my progress and– and also with my family, there’s progress there too.
Liam: Yeah, she’s, uh– she’s really proud of you, thomas. She’s been a big advocate for you and she– she has reassured me that I don’t have anything to worry about when it comes to you and hope working together. I guess that’s why I’m here. I just, um… wanted to hear it from you. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.
Hollis: Look, brooke. All I’m trying to say is that you’ve been on my mind a lot since our dinner. And I know you said you didn’t want anything serious right now.
Brooke: I just got out of my marriage.
Hollis: Which I totally respect, but at least let me take you on a proper dinner date.
Brooke: You don’t have to do that, hollis.
Hollis: Yeah, but I– I want to. There’s this place in topanga I’ve been wanting to try. We’ll keep it totally casual. No pressure. I just feel like there’s a lot more here that we can explore. I know there is. What do you say? One kiss from brooke logan just isn’t enough.
Thomas: You got nothing to worry about.
Liam: Yeah, it’s just– it’s one thing to say that, but–
Thomas: No, I understand you’re– you’re apprehensive, especially after what you walked in on the other day.
Liam: Oh, you mean you and hope on the couch with your hands all over my wife.
Thomas: That is not what happened, okay? We were working together, I was making adjustments, she was on the riser and she fell into–
Liam: Thomas, I know. I– I understand that now. I just hope you can understand why I would have assumed the worst in the moment.
Thomas: Yeah, I get it. After everything that we’ve been through. Um, but I’m committed to who I am now, all right. I’m not gonna be backsliding into the old thomas and– and I am focused 100% on– on never jeopardizing what I have with hope now.
Liam: I’m trying so hard to believe that.
Thomas: I know that my word may not mean that much to you, but I am being 100% honest. My focus now is on the line, my relationship with hope as friends, as co-parents. I think we’re creating a great family for douglas in the way that we haven’t and we’re working well together here, okay? But I am not gonna be going after hope in any way. Making any moves on her, all right? And even if she came on to me, I would say no.
Liam: Okay, see that right there. Do you– do you hear what you’re saying? Do you see why that would worry me? That you’re entertaining that? Hope coming on to you as a plausible scenario. Thomas, hope is not going to be coming on to you because that is ridiculous.
Thomas: Of course not because she is fully committed to you and your marriage.
Steffy: So there’s no reason to worry about you and thomas, right?
Hope: No, of course not.
Steffy: Okay. I can’t tell you how relieved I am to hear you say that because I do feel as though my brother has changed.
Hope: I agree.
Steffy: I just think it’s important that we stay professional and avoid conflict.
Hope: I would love that because I– I don’t want any problems either.
Steffy: I would love that too and I mean, look at our moms. They’re kind of paving the way for us.
Hope: I know. I think they’re actually having lunch together.
Steffy: I think they are. It’s really nice that they’ve been able to move past their differences and come to a place of understanding. I really hope that we can do that too.
Hope: I would love that. I think it would be also really nice for the kids.
Steffy: Yeah, it would. And I’m– you know, I’m happy. I’m– I’m in love with finn and you’re in love with liam and I really do feel as though this is how things are supposed to be. Not to say things weren’t difficult at first.
Hope: Yeah, things were tough at times.
Steffy: Yeah, many times, especially when liam married you and we had our daughter, but it was tough, but I found finn. And I am absolutely in love with him and I just know he is my forever and I know liam is your forever.
