[ Relaxing music ]

Liam: So, I think, um– I think maybe there’s been a– a misunderstanding. I didn’t come here because I need you to reassure me about my marriage.

Thomas: I get it. You don’t like hope spending time with me.

Liam: That’s true, but… I trust hope. I just don’t trust you.

Thomas: Sure, and I– I haven’t really given you a reason to trust me.

Liam: And you’ve never given me a reason to change my mind.

Thomas: But maybe I can in time. Everyone knows that hope is committed to you and your marriage.

Liam: And nothing is gonna change that, including you. You understand that, right?

Steffy: Sometimes things work out the way they’re meant to. Sheila’s in jail, our families are safe. I’m happy with finn and our kids and douglas is back with you and liam and beth and you’re happy and in love with liam.

Hollis: I mean, it’s been a lot of time since our dinner and I still can’t stop thinking about you. I just know that there’s so much more that we can have together. Much more.

Brooke: Hollis, you’re very sweet and sexy, a good kisser, but you’re looking to date and I’m not ready yet.

Hollis: Yet.

Brooke: [ Laughing ] Okay. You are relentless.

Brooke: I am flattered, I truly am, but I think our days of special deliveries are over.

Hollis: Look, maybe dinner at your house wasn’t as romantic as it should have been.

Brooke: Oh, no. No, it was. It was lovely. And that kiss. Oh, my gosh, that kiss. But as much as I enjoyed it, I’m not sure I’m ready to jump into something.

[ Taylor clears her throat ]

Taylor: Oh, hello there. You’re looking a little flustered.

Brooke: Whoo.

Taylor: So is–

Brooke: I am.

Taylor: So is there gonna be another dinner with hollis or did you chase him away?

Liam: Hope brought you back for one reason, to help save her line.

Thomas: And we’re gonna make that happen. I’m not gonna let her down.

Liam: That’s awesome because you are a valuable co-worker to her, but nothing more. So, please understand, all the long hours, all the talk about teamwork and partnership, there’s no hidden message there. It’s all about hope for the future. It’s not about you.

Steffy: If thomas does become a problem for you, I– I wanna know.

Hope: He won’t be.

Steffy: I’m glad to hear that, but I do have high hopes for this partnership. But if thomas does step outta line or if you need some distance, you can come to me. I– I do want hope for the future to succeed, but I also want you to feel supported. Our moms are doing it and I hope we can do that too.

Hope: Thank you. Steffy, I– I appreciate that. I really do, but your brother has just been a complete professional.

Steffy: I’m really glad to hear that.

Hope: Yeah, I just– I wish liam would believe it too. You know, I’ve tried to reassure him, but I don’t know, nothing seems to help. Maybe if he heard it though, coming from someone who– who works here at the office and knows firsthand how thomas and I interact. I mean, I know you already kind of broached the subject with him, but maybe it’s worth trying again. You know, help liam see that there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to thomas and me. Keep it quilted means you keep it the best…

Steffy: You want me to help you out with liam?

Hope: Well, I just– maybe you might be able to get through to him. I mean, talk to him, reassure him, it might make more of a difference coming from you.

Steffy: I– I tried, I tried to make it clear to him that I think my brother has changed. And his obsession with you is in the past.

Hope: And liam just wouldn’t listen.

Steffy: Hope. Okay– okay, I will, uh– I will give it another shot. I will talk to him again.

Hope: Thank you.

Steffy: Yeah, of course. It’s the least I can do. You let thomas come back to hope for the future and yes, it was right for the line, but it was also so good for him. I’ve never seen him so motivated and energized.

Hope: Yeah, I can see it too.

Steffy: But if– if thomas, like, freaks you out, being around him in any way, like, come to me. Know that I’m here for you.

Taylor: Hello? You’re quiet all of a sudden.

Brooke: Yeah, sorry.

Taylor: That’s okay. What’s going on? Are you thinking about hollis asking you out to dinner again?

Brooke: I wish, no. Probably something I can’t do right now.

Taylor: Right, because you want to focus on your family?

Brooke: Yes. And this isn’t about ridge?

Brooke: No, nothing like that, no.

Taylor: Okay. Well, you’re thinking about something. Something’s wrong. What is it?

Brooke: Look, I don’t wanna get into it. We’re here, having a nice meal, nice dessert. I don’t wanna get too heavy. Probably reading too much into it anyway.

Taylor: Okay. And maybe– maybe your feelings are completely valid and we can work it out together. It’s kind of my specialty.

Brooke: It’s hope. Our relationship as mother and daughter. She would like to be the complete opposite of me.

Thomas: Hope and I have agreed to keep things professional.

Liam: Right, but hope doesn’t have a problem with boundaries. You do.

Thomas: I did, you’re right. But not anymore.

Liam: [Indistinct] Was so much easier if I could just, like, take your word for it.

Thomas: I’m not– I’m not expecting you to just take my word for it, all right? I– I know that my promises don’t mean that much to you, but I’m asking you to trust me.

Liam: I know, yeah, I know. You just want a chance to prove yourself. I know.

Thomas: Yeah. I do.

Liam: Listen, hope did what she had to do to save her line and I will always be supportive of her career, but thomas, she is not attracted to you. Hope is impregnably faithful and she loves me with all of her heart.

Thomas: Hope.

Liam: Hey.

Hope: You two playing nice?

Liam: Yup.

Thomas: Well, liam’s concerned about me, in relationship to your marriage. It’s not like I can blame him, all right. But I promised both of you that I am fully respectful of your marriage and your commitment to each other.

Liam: That’s all I wanted to hear. You wanna– do you wanna get out of here? Do you wanna, uh, grab some lunch or something?

Hope: Actually, uh, thomas and I still have some work to do, but I won’t be late.

Liam: Okay. I’ll see you later.

Hope: I’ll see you soon.

Thomas: Um, I meant what I said and I don’t think liam’s gonna believe me, but, I promise, hope, I don’t want to cause any issues for you or your marriage or turn your world upside down, ever again. Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-C…

Brooke: My daughter doesn’t want to be anything like me.

Taylor: Do you think she really meant it like that?

Brooke: Those were her exact words.

Taylor: Okay. What– what sparked it? Have you been arguing?

Brooke: No, I mean my past hasn’t been an issue between us for a long time.

Taylor: Wait a minute. She– she brought up your past?

Brooke: My relationships with inappropriate men. I do regret the pain that my decisions have caused my family. I do, but you know what, those were my decisions to make and I made them. And whether they were right or wrong, it doesn’t really matter. I’m not gonna beat myself up for following my heart.

Taylor: Are hope and liam having problems?

Brooke: Every time I ask her, she just gets more and more upset. So, I am concerned, yeah.

Taylor: That makes sense. I understand that. But hope and liam will work it out. I– I do believe that. Hope is so in love and committed to liam.

Brooke: Yeah.

[ Knock on door ]

Steffy: Hey, hey, are you looking for hope?

Liam: No, no, actually I just saw hope. But if you’re busy, I can, I–

Steffy: No, no, actually, um– I– I need to speak with you.

Liam: Okay. Is it about kelly? Did she clock another boy?

Steffy: No. No, no, it’s– it’s about hope. I’m not trying to bring up a bad subject, but we’ve already had this discussion and um–

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: Yeah, and hope she– she came here and she, um…

Liam: Steffy, she what? She came here.

Steffy: She’s worried about your concerns with thomas.

Liam: Is she maybe starting to share those concerns?

Steffy: No. No and neither. No, and neither am I. But clearly, you still have a problem with it, so she asked if I could talk to you.

Liam: Oh, great. So now you’re both pleading his case.

Steffy: No, no, look, hope and thomas, they are doing really great work and they’re doing everything they can to rebuild their professional connection. She understands that you’re upset and she knows that she hasn’t been able to convince you, so she asked if I could help.

Thomas: Like I said, hope, I’m– I’m so sorry for the heartache and pain that I’ve caused you in the past. Especially when you came in and transformed our lives. When caroline died, douglas and I, we were lost, but you came in and you– you– you gave him a mother and you showed us both love and compassion that we needed. And I cannot thank you enough for that. I am so grateful for you, hope. And I promise, like I said before, I– I don’t want to come in between your marriage and disrupt your life, okay? But my feelings for you, well, they were valid. It makes complete sense that anyone could fall in love with you because hope, you’re amazing.

For your most brilliant smile,

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: Hope and I have our differences, but I really admire who she is, who she’s become. And her morals and her principles, her priorities. But ever since her outburst, I’ve been really concerned.

Taylor: In what way?

Brooke: Are you having

feelings for another man?

Is it thomas?

Hope: This isn’t about me.

This is about you.

Brooke: All marriages have problems. That’s what I told her. You just have to face them together.

Taylor: And you really think that hope and liam are having issues?

Brooke: Their marriage has been under a lot of pressure.

Taylor: Oh, it’s because of hope working with thomas. Oh, I wish there was a way to convince liam that thomas had truly changed.

Liam: Hope wants you to speak to me?

Steffy: I told her I already had. Look, I’m– I am just trying to be completely transparent with both of you, but I am in a weird position because part of me feels like hope wants me to defend my brother and…

Liam: Which you… you have an issue with?

Steffy: No, no, not at all. And that is the strangest part of all because after everything my brother did, all the infuriating and destructive things he has done, I truly believe when he says it won’t happen again. My brother is working on himself. He is on the straight and narrow. He’s going to therapy. He is focused on work.

Liam: Well, yeah, he’s focused on hope’s collection, where he gets to spend as much time with her as he wants.

Steffy: Okay. The feelings thomas had for hope, they are in the past. They will not interfere in your marriage, okay?

Hope: I’m not perfect.

Thomas: Well, maybe you don’t see yourself that way but douglas does.

Hope: Well, he’s a little boy, of course, he looks up to both of his parents.

Thomas: Right, but only one of his parents deserve it. You gave douglas a future. He loves you so much.

Hope: And I love him.

Thomas: Yeah. Even when– even when he wasn’t living with you, when he was living with me, or when he was living with steffy, he still knew you were there for him. He could always count on you. You’ve always been that for him. You– you’re just incredible and– and in his life and I honestly, I– I can– I thank you for all of that. And I– and I wanna show you all the gratitude in the world, but honestly, I– I– I– I– I don’t want to freak you out or… yeah.

Hope: You’re not.

Thomas: No?

Hope: No. You and caroline created a beautiful, amazing boy and I am just– I’m lucky that I get to be a part of his life.

Thomas: Okay. Even if, um– even if his father is a part of the package?

Hope: Yeah, sure. Even if his father is a bad boy every now and then.

Thomas: Oh, well, good thing you’re the good girl.

Hope: Hm. It’s not as easy as it looks. To be honest, thomas, most of my life has felt like me trying to be someone different than my mom. You know, she had a tendency to jump from one man to the next, chasing passion and desire. She thrived on the attention and I judged her for it. I thought it was inappropriate, but maybe really, she was just following her heart. Maybe I was wrong.

Thomas: Um, what are you saying?

Hope: I don’t know. I don’t know. I’m just trying to still figure my life out.

Thomas: Aren’t we all doing that? There is one thing I know for sure.

Hope: What is that?

Thomas: Your place in douglas’s life? Like when– when things are going crazy. I don’t know which way is up. I’ve got two things, right? I’ve got my work and I’ve got our son and you’re always there for him. And I know it’s really, really cheesy and I’ve said it before, but you honestly are the hope for our future.

Hope: Well, thank you, thomas. I– I needed to hear that.

Thomas: Maybe I am the bad boy, but you’ll always be the good girl. You’re like an angel.
