[ Brooke sighing ]
[ Brooke gasping ] My god. What are you doing? Oh, this is unbelievable.
Hope: Mom! What?
Brooke: You and thomas?
Carter: Okay, so– so you really think it’s a good idea?
Ridge: What? Brooke talking to thomas? I think it’s a great idea. It would mean a lot to him.
Carter: Well, I’m surprised that she’s willing to after everything that’s happened.
Ridge: Why are you surprised by that? Maybe she could see him for who he is instead of who he was.
Taylor: Oh, hey fellas.
Taylor: Am I interrupting?
Carter: No, no, not at all. It’s good to see you, taylor.
Taylor: It’s good to see you too, carter. I’m looking for thomas. We’re supposed to have dinner and I can not reach him. Do you– do you know where he is?
Ridge: Yeah, he’s with brooke.
Liam: No, no. Once the third quarter projections for australia are finalized, then you send them to me. No, I did– I did tell you that yesterday, bryce. Yeah, all right. Thank you. I thought you went home.
Wyatt: Well, I saw that you didn’t, so I brought chinese.
Liam: Oh. Thank you. I was just, um, finishing up with the sydney team.
Wyatt: Yeah, I know. Nice. I think the way you’ve been handling the situation down under’s been pretty impressive. You know, speaking of situation, I just wonder if you’ve been burying yourself in your work a lot lately because you’re trying to distract yourself from the situation at home. Your marriage. When are you gonna go talk to hope?
Liam: Dude, I really– I really don’t want to talk about hope and thomas.
Wyatt: Right. I get that, but it’s not like the situation’s just gonna go away.
Liam: Yes, I know. I know, wyatt. I’m painfully aware of that. Every time I stop even for a second, what races through my brain is hope kissing thomas. Do you wanna– do you wanna know what the best part of my day has been? Yelling at the sydney team. What does that say?
Wyatt: Okay, you know what? This whole thing has been rough on you, I get that. You don’t want to talk about hope and thomas. That’s fine. So, let’s just take the jackass out of the conversation and we’ll just talk about hope. You remember her. About yay high, blonde hair, great eyes. Your wife. The woman you love.
Taylor: Okay, well why– why is thomas with brooke?
Ridge: She’s worried about hope and liam’s relationship.
Carter: That’s understandable after what just happened in rome.
Taylor: Yeah, but she’s been worried about their relationship for a while. Thomas told me what happened in rome. At least, this time, no one can blame thomas.
Ridge: And brooke agrees. She knows hope started this one.
Hope: Mom, what are you doing here?
Brooke: What are you doing here? In thomas’ bed? You are a married woman or have you forgotten? How could you do this, hope? How? This isn’t charmin!
Wyatt: Spoke to dad today.
Liam: Oh, yeah? Is he checking up on us?
Wyatt: Pretty much. I mean, I told him everything was fine, that he had nothing to worry about, but you know how he is. If he can’t see it, he can’t believe it.
Liam: Wait, you didn’t– you didn’t, um… you didn’t say anything about hope and thomas?
Wyatt: That’s not my business to tell, liam. Neither is you staying at his place while he’s gone.
Liam: Thank you. I appreciate it.
Wyatt: Look, I know that this whole thing has been rough on you, but it’s not like it’s the end of the world, right? J– j– just hear me out, hear me out here. You– you have a lot right going on in your life.
Liam: Do I?
Wyatt: Yes, you do and you know you do. Hope loves you, you love hope. You have beth. You have douglas. You have a beautiful family that everyone can see that.
Liam: Oh, can everybody see that, wyatt?
Liam: Can everybody see that? Do you think hope couldn’t see that when she had her tongue down thomas’ throat?
Wyatt: Fine, I will give you that one.
Liam: Thank you.
Wyatt: But, I don’t want to harp on this. Maybe, just– just maybe, you can find a little bit of compassion and forgiveness for your wife.
Liam: I think I should get back to work.
Wyatt: No, liam, I’m serious here!
Liam: I’m being serious too! What do you think I can do? You think I just have this superpower where I can forget everything that happened in rome? Like, deleted.
Wyatt: You know what? If you really love hope, then you need to dig deep and find a way to talk to her and forgive her.
Taylor: Look, I am– I am– I am glad that brooke knows that– that hope is the one that kissed thomas, but– but see, I just– I just have this feeling that– that thomas is gonna end up getting blamed for this because that is always what happens. And he has risen above so much, the last thing I wanna see is– is hope or any of the logans drag him down.
Ridge: Here we go, okay.
Carter: I should be going.
Ridge: Smart move. Can I come with you?
Carter: Nope. Goodnight.
Taylor: The allure of the city, carter?
Carter: Goodnight, taylor.
[ Taylor sighing ]
Ridge: So, that’s how you feel, huh?
Taylor: I do. I really do. You know how hard thomas has worked to get to where he is and he is a better man. He is a better father and I am so proud of him.
Ridge: So am I. I haven’t seen him so happy or so well-adjusted in a long time.
Taylor: And he’s happy and well-adjusted because he’s been sticking to his program and he is– he is dedicated to being the best version of himself that he can possibly be.
Ridge: I agree.
Ridge: So, shouldn’t we celebrate that?
Taylor: Ridge, I celebrate that everyday. But now, I’M… I’m worried. I am. I’m– I’m worried that– that hope’s little stunt in rome is gonna be a trigger for our son.
Ridge: Hasn’t been so far.
Taylor: So far. Well, I’ll tell you this, I do not want to see the logans sabotage thomas.
Hope: Mom, please let me explain.
Brooke: How? How are you going to explain? I came here today to tell thomas I knew that kiss wasn’t his fault. I came here in good faith. I was gonna extend an olive branch. And then I find the two of you in bed together. I’m beginning to wonder if you didn’t manipulate my daughter after all.
Hope: Mom, this is not thomas’ fault. He did not manipulate me. I made a choice. I know what I did and I don’t regret it.
Brooke: Honey, you turn to the one man that your husband hates more than anything–
Hope: My husband left me!
Brooke: I refuse to believe that, I do. You have to keep fighting, hope. And this thing that happened here today with you and thomas, this was a mistake. You are not going to be with thomas. When it comes to your hair, ingredients matter.
Ridge: No one is trying to sabotage thomas.
Ridge: Why do you do that? Why?
Ridge: It’s a simple kiss. Nothing’s gonna come of it.
Taylor: Oh, okay, ridge. How can you be so sure of that?
Ridge: I can be sure because if they had wanted to get together, they would’ve done it right here in L.A. Plenty of opportunity.
Taylor: But there were no feelings involved and now there are. Are– are you forgetting that thomas had an obsession?
Ridge: Had an obsession. History, past. It’s changed now.
Taylor: Mm-hmm. Right. But– but now, there is an active trigger and hope is pulling him back into the barrel.
Ridge: It was a simple kiss and it was heat of the moment, that’s all.
Taylor: Okay, well, that simple kiss in the heat of a moment can be very dangerous for our son.
Ridge: No, it’s– it’s not gonna come to that.
Taylor: Well, see, we don’t– we don’t know what thomas is thinking. We don’t know what’s coming up for him. We don’t know how he’s feeling.
Ridge: Here’s what I know. I trust him. Do you?
Taylor: This is not just about trust.
Ridge: Simple question. Do you trust him?
Taylor: I do. I do not trust hope or her mother.
Liam: All right, I really do have to get back to work now.
Wyatt: Oh, come on. Don’t blow me off, man.
Liam: I’m not blowing you off, wyatt. All right, okay. I know what you’re doing. You’re looking out for me and my family and I appreciate it and I hear you.
Wyatt: Okay, so what’s the problem?
Liam: What’s the– do you get that I want to forgive hope?
Wyatt: So then, why don’t you tell her that?
Liam: Because she’s the one who caused all of this in the first place by making out with thomas! Do you– do you understand that every time I close my eyes… yeah, see, there it is. See, there it is again. This is gonna haunt me forever, do you understand that?
Wyatt: Okay, I get that. Seriously, I do. But dude, it was– it was one kiss. One kiss. That’s it! Like, are you willing to just destroy your whole marriage and your family over that?
Thomas: Look, neither of us expected this, brooke. I mean, hope came over here in pain and upset because liam said he wanted a divorce.
Brooke: You should’ve sent her home.
Hope: Could you stop blaming him, mom? I don’t need rescuing right now.
Brooke: Just the other day, you were saying wanted to fix your marriage, you wanted to save it, and now this? It doesn’t make sense.
Hope: I hate what has happened, but liam made it very clear to me that it is over between us.
Brooke: You can’t give up.
Hope: I’m not the one that gave up on my marriage, mom! That was liam! And sure, maybe this is moving too fast with thomas, maybe it’s– maybe it is wrong, maybe it is scandalous, but it was also beautiful and passionate and romantic and if anyone should be able to understand it, it should be you.
[ Brooke sighing ]
Target circle week!
Ridge: I know you’re concerned about thomas and I know you don’t have a lot of patience with brooke right now.
Taylor: You think?
Ridge: But this isn’t about brooke. This is about hope and our son and the two of them had a moment in rome and I feel… given enough time, everyone’s gonna forget about it. That’s what I think. What do you think?
Taylor: I don’t, um…
Ridge: Okay, then, let me help you. Let’s just say that everything’s gonna work out just fine.
Taylor: Who are you right now?
Ridge: I know.
Taylor: What is going on? Mr. Positive?
Ridge: Point is this: It’s a simple kiss. It’s not gonna change anything.
Wyatt: Liam, don’t let one mistake destroy your entire marriage.
[ Liam sighing ]
Liam: I– I hear what you’re saying, but you’re not hearing what I’m–
Wyatt: Okay, because I’m saying it’s just one kiss. That’s what I’m saying.
Liam: That I know of. That I actually saw. And– and it was a kiss with thomas!
Wyatt: Oh, okay. So if hope kissed some random italian guy in rome, you’d be able to forgive that?
Liam: Have I not been saying that? Yes, that is the kind of thing I could eventually come to forgive.
Wyatt: Okay, I love you, but you need to let this go.
Liam: Oh, my god.
Wyatt: No one hates thomas more than I do, okay? Yet I’m asking you to let it go! Forget about him! Concentrate on hope. Think about what you do have. Think about your daughter. You have so much worth fighting for here.
Liam: Wyatt, why thomas? After– after everything that he’s done to us, what– what does that say about hope?
Wyatt: I don’t know why. I don’t know why she did what she did. She probably doesn’t even know why she did what she did.
Liam: Oh, that’s encouraging. That bodes well.
Wyatt: The thing that I do know, liam, is that you are the man that hope wants and loves. That’s it. Not thomas.
Hope: I didn’t plan any of this. I never thought for a minute that I could be with a man like this while I’m still married to another. I mean, how could I possibly, right? That’s not who I am.
Brooke: You’re right. That’s not who you are.
Hope: Yeah. Little miss hope logan. Too good to do something so thoughtless. I mean, how could I possibly? But I hate to break it to you, mom, what thomas and i shared was beautiful. And I have never felt this way before. And I am following my heart just like you did all those years ago and I am not saying that to blame you, mom. I don’t blame you for any of this. If anything, it just makes me feel even worse about the way that I attacked you for your past. Saying that I never wanted to be like you. Well maybe, I was wrong.
Brooke: Honey, you are nothing like me. I made a lot of mistakes in my life. Turning to the wrong man, the inappropriate man, and it cost me a lot. I don’t want you following in my footsteps. I don’t want that kind of life for you. You are so much better than that, hope. And when you say what you and thomas shared was beautiful? Well, I am not gonna believe that because nothing good will come of this. In fact, nothing will come of this. The two of you are going to forget everything that happened here today. You’re gonna wipe it from your minds, from your memories. No more lingering desires. Nothing. And you are going to go back to your husband, to your family, to beth and douglas. That’s where you belong, hope. You’re going to make it work. And this, whatever happened here between you and thomas, it is over. This affair ends today.
