this can’t happen. You and– and thomas? Have you forgotten everything that he’s done to your family? What were you thinking?

Hope: I’m not thinking. I’m feeling and I have never felt a connection like this before.

Brooke: Honey, I’m not gonna allow it. I am not gonna allow you to throw away your life, your marriage, your family for this. This affair with thomas ends tonight.

Wyatt: Liam, you have every right to feel hurt and angry. You’re allowed to feel all of those feelings. But the question is, is if you’re gonna allow that hurt and anger to just completely destroy years of history and a family.

Liam: I– I wish that question had an answer, wyatt.

[ Wyatt scoffing ]

Wyatt: Fine. Here’s a different question then. Do you still love hope? Because if the answer to that is yes, then you have to try and forgive her. Talk to her, listen to her. You gotta do whatever you can to save that marriage before it’s too late.

Steffy: I’m sorry, finn had to rush out. He had to see one of his patients. Moving him out of the icu.

Ridge: Well, I’m glad he’s got his priorities straight, but we did have a date tonight. We were gonna talk about the game.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, you were gonna talk about soccer all night long.

Ridge: Not all night long, just most of the night and it’s called football.

Steffy: Oh, okay.

Ridge: Okay. Anyway…

[ Steffy laughing ] You got a good man, even if he supports peterborough.

Steffy: No, I actually am really grateful. We’ve been talking about that, just how grateful we are for this life. Our beautiful family. Kelly and hayes. Everything’s just so easy with him. It really works and I just feel so lucky. Especially considering everything that’s going on between liam and hope. Because she kissed thomas.

Ridge: I feel for hope and liam. That’s tough.

Steffy: Yeah, it really rocked liam. I mean, he’s not himself.

Ridge: I get that. Look, I know I can say this to you. I’m a little concerned about thomas backsliding with all the fallout. He’s worked so hard.

Steffy: Yeah, I know. I wish it never happened.

Ridge: Hope and liam, they’re gonna be fine. He’s gonna forgive her and they’re gonna– gonna move on. It was a kiss. That’s all.

Brooke: Hope, please. You are making a terrible mistake, but it’s not too late. You can go to liam and you can tell him how much you love him and he will forgive you. You know how much he loves you.

Hope: He doesn’t want me anymore, mom. He can’t forgive me. Liam wants a divorce.

Wyatt: You’re right. What hope did, it doesn’t make any sense, but that– that’s why you have to talk to her.

Liam: How could she have feelings for thomas?

Wyatt: You don’t even know that she does!

Liam: Yes, I do, wyatt. Yes, I do. I know what I saw. That kiss was real and passionate and lustful and very freaking deliberate and it made me sick to my stomach, and steffy tried to warn me about this. She told me that there was something going on between the two of them well before–

Wyatt: You’re gonna believe steffy?

Liam: I don’t know what I believe. Here’s what I know, is that hope looked me in the eye and told me that I’m crazy for thinking that anything could happen between the two of them. I’m crazy for doubting that she loves me and our family more than anything in the world.

Wyatt: Well, she does!

Liam: You are asking me to deny reality! What I saw was not a figment of my imagination.

Wyatt: Okay, fine. It wasn’t and I can’t explain it, but you know what? You are the most forgiving person that I know. You, of all people, can find a way.

Liam: See, that– it’s exactly what steffy said. It’s unreal.

Wyatt: She did? You, uh– [ Clears throat ] You talk to steffy a lot lately?

Liam: I mean, yeah, a little.

Wyatt: Is there something you wanna tell me, bro? Some other reason, maybe, you’re not exactly fighting so hard for your marriage right now? How about you tell me how steffy factors into this whole situation, huh?

Ridge: Well, I have to keep an eye on thomas. Tell him to keep his head down and avoid any more drama. I just don’t want him to fall into that black hole. Your mom was worried about that too.

Steffy: Yeah, I told liam it’s gonna take time, but he’s gotta forgive hope.

Ridge: Liam’s very lucky to have you. It’s nice that you guys are still close.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, we, uh– we all make mistakes and I know forgiveness is tough right now, but it’s possible when you love someone. And liam loves hope.

Kelly: Mommy?

Steffy: What’s the matter, baby?

Kelly: I dreamed something happened to daddy. I was crying for him, but he couldn’t hear me.

Taylor: Oh, no. It sounds like you had a bad dream. Oh, baby. Nothing happened to daddy, okay? Remember what he said to you before you fell asleep? What did he say?

Kelly: That he loves me to the moon and back.

Steffy: And he always will.

Brooke: Hope, please. Put yourself in liam’s shoes. He just found out about the kiss. He was reacting to that.

Hope: He means it, mom. Liam wants a divorce. I saw it in his eyes.

Brooke: But that doesn’t mean you should turn to thomas. He’s obviously taking advantage of this situation. Of you.

Hope: Oh, no. Thomas is not taking advantage of me.

Thomas: I don’t want to take advantage of anything, brooke. And I never wanted to break up her marriage.

Brooke: Well, I find that hard to believe since I came in here and found the two of you in bed together.

Thomas: You came over here telling us that you know what I’m saying is true. And I just want hope to be happy.

Brooke: You want her to be happy? Then, send her home to liam where she belongs. She can fix her marriage.

Hope: Wow, mom.

Brooke: Honey, liam may have said that he wanted a divorce, but he didn’t mean it. You know he loves you.

Hope: Liam may love me, but he also loves someone else. He loves steffy. (Rose h) smoking caused my lung cancer.

Wyatt: I know you and steffy are close and everything, but– hm.

Liam: Yeah, we have a daughter and she’s still my friend.

Wyatt: Right. And you said you saw her in rome too? Before and after you– you saw hope.

Liam: Yeah, well, she was at the event, so she knows what happened.

Wyatt: And you’ve talked to her since you’ve been back?

Liam: I have been over to the house, yes.

Wyatt: Yeah. To see kelly?

Liam: Yes, I– I try to see my daughter as much as I possibly can. Is that okay with you?

Wyatt: Hm, is that it though?

Liam: Yeah, I talk to steffy about stuff like–

Wyatt: About hope? About how disillusioned you are? About how– how much you’re feeling betrayed by her right now?

Liam: I mean, yes, steffy knows– she knows how I feel.

Wyatt: Anything else come up? Any old feelings you might have for steffy?

Liam: Y– like I said, you know, sh– steffy knows how I feel.

Wyatt: Okay, liam, you– you need to be straight with me here. Is there something going on with steffy? Something that might be impacting this whole situation with hope?

Liam: I did something really stupid. Um… I kissed her.

Ridge: Everything all right?

Steffy: Out like a light.

Ridge: When you were a kid, you had bad dreams too.

Steffy: Oh, yes. You’d sit on my bed and hold my hand ’til I fell asleep.

Ridge: My favorite thing.

Steffy: Actually, I have a confession to make. I sometimes would fake a bad dream just so you could be with me.

Ridge: I love that. I had no idea.

Steffy: Nothing made me feel safer than my dad.

Ridge: And I’m sure kelly feels the same way.

Steffy: Oh, kelly adores liam. Um, liam hates not being here, but he’s a great dad. He just has two families, one with me, one with hope.

Ridge: Can I ask you something? Do you think hope turned to thomas because you still have a connection with liam?

Brooke: You refuse to let me repeat your mistakes? Okay. Yeah. Oh, fine. Fine, mom. I don’t want to. I don’t want to be with a man who’s in love with another woman and we all know how liam feels about steffy.

Brooke: Honey, that was in the past. Steffy and liam’s relationship was over a long time ago.

Hope: Oh, no. It is not over. It’s never going to be over, mom. It hangs over our marriage constantly. And I know liam feels that way because he– he has much said so to me. So, I would think that maybe you might understand how I feel in this scenario.

Brooke: My relationship with ridge is very different from yours and liam’S. Just save your marriage. You and liam have worked too hard. Fought too hard to be together. Don’t throw it all away. Save yourself from the pain and heartache.

Hope: Don’t you see that is exactly what I am doing? I am saving myself. And mom, did you ever stop to maybe ask yourself why it was so easy for liam to walk out on our marriage? How he was able to just give it up like that? After all those years that I’ve forgiven him for so much worse? He couldn’t allow me that same forgiveness, mom. Did you think that maybe it’s because he has a backup plan? Because there’s a woman who’s always been waiting there for him to give him exactly what I give him? Family, love, hell, even a daughter.

Brooke: He loves you. He is committed to you.

Hope: Oh, in the same way that ridge is committed to you? I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I know that sounded harsh and I don’t mean to hurt you, mom, but I don’t want to live my life like that. I mean, sure. Yes, you and ridge have– have managed to smooth things out as of late, but how many decades has it been of you chasing after him begging for his love, worrying that he’s thinking about someone else? I don’t want that. So yes, I will always love liam. I will and I hate the way that this has all transpired. But I want to be with a man who wants me… and only me. (Vo) if you have graves’ disease,

Wyatt: You kissed steffy? Twice?

Liam: Yeah. Um, once in rome and once after when we got back.

Wyatt: Oh, my god. Like, I don’t even know what you’re thinking. Like, this is a complete–

Liam: I– I– I don’t know what I was thinking, okay? I was– I– I had just seen my wife in thomas’s arms. I was– I was shell shocked.

Wyatt: Oh, so you thought the best thing that you could do is to go kiss steffy? Someone who you have tons of history with?

Liam: And who is happily married to finn and has her family.

Wyatt: Yes!

Liam: I know, I know it was– it was wrong and stupid and dumb and dumb and stupid and wrong and I know that.

Wyatt: Wait, you cannot– you cannot go down this road, liam. Like, you can’T. That’s not fair to anybody.

Liam: I know. I– I– I never should have crossed the line like that. I have too much respect for steffy and finn and their– and their marriage and kissing her was– it was wrong. It was totally wrong and– and I promise, I promised her, I– I– I’m never gonna do something like that. I’m– I’m never gonna interfere in her life or her marriage ever again.

Ridge: If hope thinks that liam still has feelings for you, that could seriously undermine the relationship.

Liam: I think

my marriage is over.

I think it’s over.

I think I…

[ Liam sniffling ]

I think I made a mistake.

Steffy: Oh, my god. Liam. No, liam loves hope. They’re gonna find their way through this. They’re gonna put their family back together. Liam’s future is with her.

Brooke: Honey, I– I just don’t want you to regret this and I know you will. I do, trust me. I know you’re gonna wake up one day and you’re gonna wish none of this happened. You’ll be devastated and you’ll want to take it all back, but it will be too late. But it’s not too late right now, honey. You can still fight. You can fight for liam. You can fight for your family. You could fight for your marriage.

Hope: I am fighting for myself, mom.

Brooke: Thomas is not gonna make you happy.

Hope: Were you happy all those years that I had to scrape you up off the floor, heartbroken? Were you happy?

Brooke: Of course not, sweetheart.

Hope: Okay, so I think I deserve a little more than that. And please don’t tell me again that liam loves me and I should fight for my marriage when he is the one that refuses to do so.

Brooke: Liam does love you and he will come home.

Hope: Oh, please. Mom, he’s probably over at steffy’s right now declaring his love and begging to be taken back.

Brooke: Steffy is married to finn!

Hope: Like that’s ever stopped anyone before. I mean… I hate what is happening. I hate that liam saw me kiss thomas. I hate that I hurt him. But, mom, after everything that has happened over how many years, I am not sure that I see a future with liam.

[ Brooke sighing ] You don’t mean that.

Hope: I do.

Brooke: Okay. I know what it’s like to be enticed by the bad boy.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. Can we just stop with that already? Mom, yes, thomas has flaws but last time I checked, we all do, right? But thomas also has strengths. You want to know one of them? He wants me and only me. He doesn’t have some other woman rattling around in the back of his head. No, it is just me. You know how good that feels?

Brooke: Oh, okay, so what are you trying to tell me, hope? You really are gonna give up on your marriage? You’re giving up?

[ Hope laughing ]

Hope: I don’t have an answer for you, mom. I– I don’T. I can only ask that you keep what you have seen here tonight between us while I try to figure out my next steps because this is my life and these are my choices and I will live with the consequences. I just know… that I deserve more than half of liam’s heart. And I want to be with a man who is not in love with another woman.
