Hope: So your suitcase, your luggage tag…you… you were in italy?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, I was there.
Finn: Something happened between hope and thomas in rome?
Finn: And…and… but liam saw–like… what did he see?
Liam: It was hope. It was hope. She… uh, she kissed him. She… kissed him. The one thing, the– the only thing that could tear my marriage apart was your brother, and she knew that, but she kissed him anyway.
Rj: Mom, do you know how happy I am for you and dad?
Brooke: [Chuckles] Yeah. I know you came back into town not wanting to push us together or getting involved in the family drama.
Rj: That’s true. It’s true. I did say that. But hey, what kid doesn’t want to see his parents together? Especially when he knows the two of them ob y love each other?
Brooke: Sweetheart. So cute.
Rj: Love seeing that smile on you, mom. Especially when it’s because of dad for once.
Taylor: You’re absolutely sure about this? You’re getting back with brooke?
Ridge: It’s already happened.
Taylor: Are you absolutely 1000% sure that this is what you want?
Ridge: What I want is to not hurt you.
Taylor: Well… I mean, a part of me is hurting for myself. But a part of me is hurting for you, too.
Rj: Well, I guess I gotta hand it to the eternal city. It definitely seemed to work its magic on you and dad, that’s for sure.
Brooke: It was truly a remarkable moment.
Rj: Yeah? Larger than life? Kind of like your whole love story has been?
Brooke: [Laughs] Yeah. Finally a happy ending for us after all.
Rj: For you and for dad. Although I’m sure it’s going to be more complicated for dad because of taylor. I mean, I’m sure he doesn’t want to hurt her and he has to, telling her what he’s telling her right now. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for the two of you. It’s a new beginning. It’s awesome. It’s great. But for taylor, it marks the end of any hope she had of getting back together again with dad. Right?
Ridge: You know how much I care about you, right? How much I love you and our family and all the memories?
Taylor: We will always want what’s best for each other. I know that. But that is what makes this so hard because… because I know what always happens to you, always. More heartache and disappointment because of brooke.
Hope: So you didn’t want to tell me that you were there until now?
Liam: Yeah, I wanted to surprise you. I was going to try to make it, you know, for the… hope for the future preview just to show you how much I love you and support you. How sorry I was for doubting you. Didn’t make it in time, though. Missed the whole… missed the whole thing, the press conference, whole event, and… I kind of… wonder how differently things would’ve turned out if I had made it.
Hope: I still don’t really understand. Um… you said you were there, but you didn’t want to see me?
Liam: I didn’t say I didn’t see you.
Rj: So… just so I can be clear, that is what got you and dad back together again. Keyhole?
Brooke: Not just any keyhole. The aventino keyhole.
Rj: You’re really just loving telling this story, aren’t you?
Brooke: [Giggles] Your father told me he looked through the keyhole and he saw everything that they told him he would see.
Ridge: It’s unbelievable. Brooke!
Brooke: [Gasps] Ridge.
Ridge: I found you. I don’t want to spend another day without you. My logan.
Brooke: You said “logan.”
Ridge: My beautiful, wonderful logan.
Brooke: Say it again. Just, say it again.
Ridge: Will you be my logan forever?
Brooke: [Laughs] Yes. Oh, my god, yes. Yes, of course.
Rj: Wow. Kind of sounds like a marriage proposal. I mean, are you guys going to tie the knot sometime soon or am I getting ahead of myself?
Brooke: How would you feel if your father and I did remarry?
Rj: You kidding me? I’d be excited for you! Everyone that thinks you two should be together would be excited for you. But, you know, for… steffy, for thomas, and especially for taylor, it’s going to be a whole different story.
Taylor: I can only speak from what I’ve seen time and time again. You get pulled back into a relationship with brooke and then it’s chaos for you. But–but you know what you’re getting into, ridge. You know the risks.
Ridge: Anything I can say to make this easier? Is there anything I can do?
Taylor: Yes. Be happy. Just be happy and… and keep your eyes open. I told you how I felt before you went to rome. I shared with you all of my concerns about brooke and her manipulations, and I was right. So much for our pact.
Finn: Hope and thomas kissed?
Finn: Liam was right all this time. Obviously, thomas’s obsession with hope got the better of…
Steffy: No, no, thomas wasn’t the one who initiated it.
Finn: Are you saying that–
Steffy: It was hope. Hope initiated the kiss. She wanted my brother.
Hope: You saw me? But you said you missed the event.
Liam: Yeah, I did.
Hope: Okay, so, how… when did you…
Liam: It’s funny ’cause I had all these, um… plans, you know. I wanted to– I wanted to maybe take you to the stella maris afterwards, just the two of us.
Hope: I would have loved that. I wish we had gone.
Liam: Do you?
Hope: Of course.
Liam: Okay. Well, then that’s why… the tag on the luggage. Anyway, maybe you can tell me a little bit about…
Hope: Wait, but liam, you still haven’t explained why you didn’t say a word–
Hope: Hope, I think–I think I’m done for the moment. Maybe it’s time for you to do some explaining. Having triplets is…
Taylor: Knowing brooke as–as well as I do, and despite our bestie pact, I’m–I’m not surprised that she wasn’t honest with me about what had been building between the two of you. Because, I mean, really, when has brooke ever volunteered honesty?
Ridge: Come on, taylor.
Taylor: Oh, please, don’t start defending.
Ridge: I’m not defending anybody! Trying to help you understand.
Taylor: Okay, but it is not your job to help me understand. I understand who she is and how this is going to play out, and it is not my job to help you understand that. Come on, ridge. She has children with your father. She slept with your brother. Okay, I did, too. But what I didn’t do is get pregnant with my daughter’s husband and have a child with him. But you don’t have to worry about that now, because brooke’s older, so that’s not going to happen. But what you should worry about is who she is at her core. And that will never change.
Finn: Hope kissed thomas, not the other way around. You were right about her feelings for your brother.
Steffy: Yeah, of course I was right. I mean, I wanted to be wrong. I never thought… I never thought hope would do something like this.
Finn: It’S…it’S… I mean, it’s so unlike her.
Steffy: I just feel terrible for liam. I mean, his whole life has been turned upside down. I really hope, as hard as it might be, that he’s able to find forgiveness. And I’m really hoping that their marriage is able to survive after what hope did.
Hope: What do you want me to explain?
Liam: Told you, everything. I just… want to hear about your trip. Want to know what you did. What’d you do? What’d you do?
Hope: Okay, well, uh, like–like I said, the preview and the press event were a hit.
Liam: You and thomas were a hit. Okay. Got it.
Hope: Yes, I would say our hard work paid off.
Liam: Clearly. And then what, after?
Hope: After what? After the event, hope. What’d you do? Where’d you go? Did you go back to the hotel?
Liam: Stick around the piazza? Sign some autographs? Take some pictures with fans? No, I know, you were so busy you never got a chance to go sightseeing. Did you go sightseeing?
Hope: Actually, yes.
Liam: Alone? Or were you with someone? (Vo) at dog chow
Brooke: Taylor made it very clear to ridge just how much she loves him when she broke our pact and was trying to get him back. I don’t think she’ll ever get over your father.
Rj: Mom, if that’s true, then what dad’s telling her right now? I mean, taylor’s a strong person, but she’s going to be heartbroken at the prospect of losing dad forever.
Taylor: Okay. I’m going to say– I’m going to say one more thing, and then I’m not going to bring this up ever again. Brooke is going to betray you. And then she’ll admit it after she gets caught, and then she’ll say she never meant to hurt you, and she’ll somehow make herself the victim, and then you’ll forgive her. Okay, I’m done. Oh, god, rich. I just don’t understand how you can just continue to get yourself in this pain and disappointment over and over again! That is what is so heartbreaking about this. Because I love you. Okay, now I’m done.
Finn: Also, it’s true– hope has feelings for your brother.
Steffy: She wouldn’t have kissed him that way if she didn’T.
Finn: I guess the question now is, after… everything that’s happened, what’s liam going to do?
Steffy: I am so sorry. You do not deserve this. You do not, okay?
Liam: So… after the press conference, you walked around rome. By yourself?
Liam: No? So someone was with you?
Liam: Your mom? Was it your mom? Was it–who was it? Was it carter?
Hope: No. Um, I don’T… so you came to rome, and then you turned back around and I just don’t understand.
Liam: Yeah, I don’t– I don’t understand why you’re not just answering my question. After the preview, you did some sightseeing. Who did you do the sightseeing with?
Hope: I don’t want to talk about rome anymore because I’m home now, and this is where my focus is with you and our family.
Liam: Man, you know, I really wish I could focus on this. I really do. But it’s hard when you’re not answering me. After the event, you walked around, you saw some places. There’s so many great places to see, hope. Trevi fountain? Did you go to trevi fountain? How about the pantheon? Did you go–no. I know where you went. I know where you went. You went where everybody goes. The coliseum. Did you go to the coliseum, hope? Did you go there?
Hope: Yes, I went to the coliseum.
Liam: You went to the coliseum. Okay, progress. Who’d you go there with? You can’t say it. You can’t say it. But we both know who you went there with. I know because… I saw you two together. You didn’t even try to hide it. You’re just out in the open for everyone to see. For me to see. I mean, you didn’t know I was there. You thought I was thousands of miles away watching our children. The family that you claim matters more to you than anything, so you thought you were safe. You thought I would never find out, but I found out, and here’s the thing. I don’t want to have to say it. Don’t make me. You say it. Just tell me what you did. It’s okay. I’ll help you. We can do this together. We’ll do it. Just repeat after me. “I…” come on. “I…” repeat after me. “I…” hope, you can do this. “I…” come on, hope. “I… kissed….” come on, hope. Say it! “I! Kissed!” Come on. Come on. I want to hear you say it, please. “I kissed…” one more time. Come on. Do it with me. Do it with me, please. What? What? What?!
Hope: I kissed thomas.
