Hope: I missed you so much. I– um, I hope it’s okay I– I stopped by beth’s school on the way back and just said hi really quickly. I just– I felt like I couldn’t get home fast enough to you and the kids.
Liam: Yeah. So, how was the trip? I mean, how– how was it? They don’t call rome the city of eternal love for nothing.
Hope: Liam, is… is everything okay? I just… you just seem like, um… is there something wrong?
[ Steffy sighs ]
[ Sighs ]
Liam: It was hope. She…
uh, she kissed him.
[ Sighs ]
Steffy: Baby, I’m home.
[ Chuckles ]
Finn: Oh, my god. Hey.
[ Both chuckle ]
Steffy: Oh, god. I missed you.
Finn: Mm-mm. Not as much as I have missed you. Ah, please don’t leave me like that again.
Steffy: I’ll try not to.
[ Finn laughs ]
[ Birds chirping ]
Eric: The reviews for the preview were fantastic.
Brooke: The whole event was inspired.
R.J.: Yeah. We saw the footage of you and hope together. You looked great.
Donna: And you– you looked hot. I mean, hotter than normal– usual, you know.
Brooke: Wow. Thank you. I mean, it was fun to model again, especially because I was wearing one of my daughter’s designs. That made it even more special.
R.J.: Yeah. Hope and thomas must be stoked.
Eric: I’m sure. It’s really wonderful when all that hard work and dedication pays off.
Brooke: And perseverance and commitment and faith.
Donna: Uh-huh. Why do I get the feeling we’re not talking about hope for the future anymore?
Taylor: Wow. Well– well, this is a– a nice surprise. How was your trip?
Ridge: It was amazing. Not what I expected.
Taylor: Yeah? I– I bet it was hard to pull yourself away.
Ridge: It’s good to be back.
Taylor: I heard our son was a huge hit.
Ridge: Yes, he was. Uh, lots of orders. He was great.
Taylor: Yeah. That’s good stuff. Thomas deserves a win.
Ridge: And he got one.
Taylor: Yeah. Yeah. Good. Good. Uh, well, this is a– this is a really good time for our family.
Ridge: And I cherish our family. Always will. You know that.
Taylor: Yes. What is it, ridge?
Ridge: Something else happened in rome. Something you need to know about.
Eric: I think maybe you’re right, donna. The twinkle in your sister’s eye may be a dead giveaway.
Donna: Yeah. I– I– I think there’s more to this story than you’re telling us.
R.J.: You know, I– I think there’s only one person that can put a smile as big on my mom’s face, and I’m pretty sure it’s my dad.
Eric: So, what about that? Is R.J. Onto something here?
Donna: Rome worked its magic on you and ridge, didn’t it?
[ Brooke giggles ] Did it?
R.J.: It did?
Brooke: Ridge and i are back together.
R.J.: No way!
R.J.: What! Hey!
Donna: Oh, my god!
Brooke: My god.
Taylor: So, what are you saying, ridge?
Ridge: I’m saying the hope for the future preview is not the only thing that happened in italy.
Taylor: Right, no, I know– I know what you’re gonna say. You lost your passport. Or you’re back with brooke.
Steffy: It was incredible. We got everything we wanted for hope for the future, but nothing compares to this. Being home with you, wrapped up in your arms.
Finn: Yeah. All I could think about last night was you coming home today.
[ Steffy chuckling ] It made me so happy, I started– started hearing things.
Steffy: What things?
Finn: You don’t– you don’t hear that? Kinda sounds like, um… monaco.
[ Steffy gasps ]
[ Bells ringing ]
[ Both laughing ]
Steffy: You’re the sweetest. I love you so much.
Finn: I love you, too. So, come on, tell me everything.
Steffy: Oh, gosh. I don’t think you’re ready for this.
Finn: Something’s– something’s bothering you. What’s– what is it?
Steffy: Uh, yeah. Um… it has to do with hope and liam.
Hope: Is everything okay? You seem… I don’t know. Uh, did something happen when I was away, or– or the kids?
Liam: It’s not the kids. The kids are fine. Nothing out of the ordinary happened here. You’re the one who went on a big adventure. So, I’m just… I’m just saying, tell me about it. That’s all. Tell me everything you did in rome.
It’s the most wonderful
time of the year
Eric: Wow. Talk about a sign. Ridge must have been floored.
Brooke: Yeah. I– and I had no idea what was going on. I heard him yelling for me, and I turn around and there he is running at me. And he seemed very excited. He– he was just beaming. He had this big goofy smile on his face and– and he told me that he believes again.
Ridge: Will you be…
my logan forever?
Brooke: [ Laughs ] Yes.
Oh, my god. Yes!
Yes, of course.
I’m having a hard time believing that this is really happening, but it is. Ridge and I reunited at last.
[ Laughs ]
Ridge: I– I had no idea we were gonna reconnect. That was… it was all about the preview. But I saw my future in rome.
Taylor: With brooke.
Ridge: I have to give this one more chance. I have to.
Steffy: You know what? Hope and liam can wait. I just wanna be with my sexy husband.
Finn: I’m not gonna fight you on that. Mm, man, I missed you. I’m glad you’re home.
Steffy: Yeah. So, the event went well? There’s no issues? There’s that look again. You mentioned hope and liam. Look, I know liam went to rome.
Steffy: You do?
Finn: Yeah, R.J. And i convinced him. Liam wanted to surprise hope.
Steffy: Yeah, liam’s the one who ended up being surprised.
Liam: I wanna hear about it. I wanna hear about rome. So, tell me. Tell me… everything.
Hope: Okay. Uh, well…
[ Clears throat ] …The, uh, press event and the preview were– were amazing. They– everyone loved, and I mean loved, the designs, so…
Liam: Cool. S– sounds like… thomas came through for you in a big way. You still riding that high? The virus that causes shingles is sleeping…
Donna: I am so happy for you and ridge.
Eric: If two people were ever meant to be together, aside from donna and me, of course–
Donna: Of course.
Eric: — It’s you and ridge.
R.J.: Uh, you know me, I don’t like inserting myself into my parents’ love lives, but I– I am very happy for you, mom.
Brooke: Aw, thanks, honey. Oh.
R.J.: I am, uh–
Brooke: So sweet.
R.J.: I am a little worried about how the news is gonna affect steffy and thomas. I don’t think they’re gonna take it well at all. Kinda leaves their mom on the outside looking in. Right?
Taylor: Okay. So– so, one more last chance with brooke.
Ridge: It– it may seem like we’ve been here before, but this is different.
Taylor: Yeah? Uh… how?
Ridge: I don’t know. I– I’m– I’m older and– and we’re wiser and…
[ Taylor chuckles softly ] Nothing’s ever gonna come between us ever again.
Taylor: Okay. Don’t jinx yourself with “ever again,” because that’s the perfect way to make sure that it happens again. And it’s coming. Getting back with brooke means setting yourself up for more heartache.
Finn: I don’t understand. So, did liam not get to the preview on time?
Steffy: No, he just missed it.
Finn: Oh, that’s a bummer. He must have been disappointed to miss her big moment.
Steffy: Oh, he was more than disappointed. I– I told him that hope went out to go sightseeing after the preview, and he took off. He went towards the colosseum. And, uh–
Finn: Well, that makes sense. I mean, that’s like the number one sight to see when you’re in rome. So, hope must have been blown away when she saw liam.
Steffy: She didn’t see liam.
Finn: How come?
Steffy: He came home. He came back to la.
Finn: Wait, well, th– that doesn’t make any sense. Why would liam do that?
Liam: Well, it sounds like you got… everything you wanted from this trip.
Hope: I know. Hubris. Right?
[ Chuckles ] But, um… it really was a success. I mean, like I said, the press, they were enthusiastic and supportive and they really did welcome us like family. And those dresses, I mean, they were– they were breathtaking and…
Liam: Breathtaking, huh?
Hope: They were. And to be able to wear those with rome as the backdrop, I just… I just wish that you could have been there to see it. Um, the piazza where we held the event–
Liam: Yeah. No. It sounds like a really incredible moment for you and thomas.
Hope: Yeah. It– it was.
Liam: Almost… I don’t know, uh… romantic. For copd, ask your doctor about breztri.
Brooke: Actually, I was pleasantly surprised. Thomas and steffy took the news quite well.
Brooke: Mm-hmm. They just want their dad to be happy. And if that’s with me, then they’ll respect it.
R.J.: Well, I mean, that’s a nice thing to say, but they must be disappointed for their mom on some level, right?
Eric: I do have to wonder how taylor’s gonna take this news.
Brooke: Yeah. I wonder, too. Ridge is telling her right now.
Ridge: You have every right to be cynical about brooke. I mean, you– you’ve been on this ride for a very long time.
Taylor: Ah, the old marriage go-round. Yeah. Not the happiest ride. But my happiness isn’t dependent on any man. Not even you, ridge forrester.
Ridge: I know that.
Taylor: I know you know. And I do love you. Always and forever and… and I miss you. But I’ll be okay. You don’t think that you’re setting yourself up to get hurt again?
Ridge: No, I– no. Not this time. I– I saw my future very clearly.
Taylor: Yeah, well, you see things clearly until you don’T. That’s– that’s what you do. Sorry. Okay. Fine. I– I’m sure that you and brooke are going to be very happy together until she betrays all the trust that you’ve put in her. And she will. Brooke logan will always be brooke logan.
Finn: Okay. Let me get this straight. Liam flew all the way to rome to surprise hope, saw her, didn’t speak to her, but then just turned around and flew home?
Finn: And this mood that you’re in, this weight that I’m feeling from you has something to do with liam and hope. And I know lately you have been suspicious of something developing between hope and thomas. Are you telling me that… were you right? Something happened between your brother and liam’s wife over there?
Steffy: Yeah. And liam saw it with his own eyes.
[ Finn sighs ]
Liam: All those long nights… working with thomas… they finally… paid off. And that must feel… really good.
Hope: It does.
Liam: And to have that success play out in rome, it’s– like I said, it’S… romantic.
Hope: Well, it would’ve been romantic if you had been there, but you weren’t–
Liam: Yeah, well, you didn’t invite me until the last minute, which I completely understand, because it was a business trip. Strictly business. Right?
Hope: Yeah, but I’m home now… with you, with the kids, which is where I want to be, my most favorite place in the world. And I– I missed you. I missed all of you.
Liam: You did?
Hope: Of course. Liam, what’s really going on? Because I… is that– is that your luggage?
Hope: Oh. So, you’re– you’re going on a business trip now. Okay. Um… the tag says rome to lax. So, I, um– I’m not really– I’m not understanding. Were you in italy?
Hope: [ Chuckles ] So, you… why were you in italy?
