Liam: You say you haven’t forgotten all the pain thomas has caused us.

Hope: I haven’T.

Liam: You still kissed him. And I guess I just… I think if there were ever a day for you to step out of that fog and see thomas for who he really is… it’s beth’s birthday.

Thomas: Sorry I missed the party. I thought it was better I steered clear though.

Steffy: I don’t think so.

Thomas: Come on.

Steffy: It’s too cute, I don’t need this.

Thomas: It’s very cute.

Steffy: Yeah, donna and, uh, katie and the bodyguard took kelly out after, get some ice cream.

Thomas: Ice cream.

Steffy: Yeah.

Thomas: Sure it’s going to be very easy to put them to sleep.

Steffy: Well, I think they’ll crash pretty quick.

Thomas: How about you? You’re gonna crash quick? Look, I know it’s– I feel terrible, you– it might be hard for you right now and– but I am glad that you took the kids and you moved in here ’cause I’m sure you feel a lot safer.

Steffy: Yeah. I mean, yeah, it is– it is hard, also for liam and hope. What exactly is going on between you and hope?

[ Thomas laughs ]

[ Brooke moaning ]

[ Brooke laughing ]

Ridge: I am so grateful to have my logan back in my arms.

Brooke: Yeah, to do more of this.

[ Brooke moaning ] I’m grateful too, I am.

[ Brooke chuckles ]

Ridge: Okay. [ Groans ] Tell me about the birthday party. I really wanted to be there and then the day just got away from me, I don’t know what happened.

Brooke: Well, it’s okay. Everybody had a lot of fun. You’ve got to see this. Two sassy sisters.

Ridge: Ah, double trouble. Look at these guys.

Brooke: Oh, isn’t it cute? Beth is precious. She is a true miracle. Something I know isn’t lost on hope and liam. Maybe beth can help make another miracle happen.

[ Brooke sighs ]

Brooke: What? [ Laughs ]

Ridge: I don’t know, you just seem lighter.

Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, I guess I am. I mean, spending time with family does that to me. Spending time with you does that to me too.

Ridge: Hmm.

Brooke: Call me an optimist but seeing liam and hope together at their daughter’s party was really promising. And I know that they signed divorce papers and that they’re separated but you could still see the love between them.

Ridge: Speaking from experience, a love like that doesn’t just go away.

Brooke: It’s true. But circumstances changed in the worst way possible.

Ridge: You’re talking about my son.

Thomas: Hope and me? Uh, well, we have some press tomorrow.

Steffy: Nice try. Obviously, I know hope kissed you in rome.

Thomas: Yeah.

Steffy: Yeah. And I do know how you felt about her over the years.

[ Thomas scoffs ] Thomas, hope and liam’s marriage seems to be ending. They signed the divorce papers. So what does that mean for you and hope?

Hope: I will never forget how blessed we are to have beth in our lives after all of the heartbreak and all of the pain that we went through.

Liam: Do you really mean that?

Hope: Liam, of course, I do.

Liam: Then how can you have any involvement with thomas whatsoever? Listen, it’s a fact, he’s a brilliant designer. But… I have to ask you, respectfully, have you lost your damn mind?

[ Hope laughs ] Because hope, if thomas had his way, we wouldn’t have celebrated beth’s birthday today. I’m worried about you. I’m worried about your judgment and I’m just– I’m asking you, I’m begging you not to be defensive for one moment and just take a step back. And think about everything that thomas has done to us… and recognize him for the person that he is.

When it comes to getting

your flu shot,

Brooke: If hope and liam only saw what I saw today, what we all saw. How much they still love each other. This is a terrible situation to navigate, but they have been through so much together. They’ve come through so much, ridge, and they still love each other and they’re stronger than ever.

Ridge: And you really want them to reconcile?

Brooke: Yes, of course, I do. And beth, that sweet little innocent girl, she has no idea that her parents are on the verge of a divorce.

Ridge: But staying together for the sake of the kids is not always the best solution.

Brooke: No. But if they really do love each other that much, maybe their love can see them through, right? They just need to keep on fighting. I mean, none of this would have happened if–

Ridge: If it weren’t for thomas. Is that what you were gonna say?

Steffy: Thomas, come on. I know you’ve done a lot of work on yourself. You’re not the same person you used to be. This is hope, remember? She kissed you. You didn’t do anything wrong.

Thomas: Right. Of course.

Steffy: So I have no idea what’s going on with you and hope.

Thomas: Honestly, neither do I. [ Chuckles ]

Steffy: Right.

Thomas: All I want is hope’s happiness.

Steffy: You really feel that way?

Thomas: Yes.

Steffy: If hope wanted to reconcile with liam, repair their marriage, you’d be okay with that?

Liam: She was so excited. Were you there when– when she said that she wishes every day was her birthday?

[ Hope chuckles ]

Hope: Well just wait until she’s older, I’m pretty sure that wish will go away.

Liam: Oh, god, she’s so cute. Just the little– her smile and her laugh and her little giggles. Just, it’s infectious and she gets that from you, obviously.

Hope: Oh, really? Well, what about her power of persuasion? Because I’m pretty sure she gets that from you. I think I might have let her have about four of those seahorse cookies.

Liam: You didn’T.

Hope: I did.

[ Both chuckling ]

Liam: I wish I could persuade you like that. Would’ve saved us a lot of grief. I’ve tried to make sense of what happened, s– seeing you kissing thomas in rome. It was… it was– it was a shock, you know, after all those months of me voicing my concerns and begging you not to let him get close. I mean, I went out there to– to surprise you, to support you, and to stumble upon you kissing him in front of the colosseum…

Hope: Liam… I’m sorry. I– I’m sorry, I– I’ll say it time and time again, I never meant to hurt you.

Liam: Hey, I believe you. I know that it kills you to see me hurt. I know that. That’s why it’s worth trying to get through to you because I don’t– I don’t think this is you. I really think you’ve lost yourself. Just let me help you find your way back. I’m not just accomplished.

Ridge: You think that hope and liam’s marriage is ending because of my son.

Brooke: No, I– I didn’t say that.

Ridge: You’re kind of saying that. Let’s– but let’s– let’s try to remember that hope went after thomas in rome. And you found them in his bed. That means she made the journey.

Brooke: I know. I know, that’s what I’m saying. She’s the one who instigated this. But I just wish that thomas respected her marriage–

Ridge: She doesn’t respect it.

Brooke: Regardless of all that. It doesn’t matter. I just pray that hope and liam find a way through this and manage to reunite their family.

Steffy: I’m serious, thomas. If hope and liam work things out, if they salvage their marriage, you’d be okay with that?

Thomas: Yes. Like I said, I want hope to be happy and fulfilled, okay? And if that’s with liam, then so be it.

Steffy: But you don’t think that’s gonna happen?

Thomas: Well, you said it yourself. All right, they already signed divorce papers. So I think it’s only a matter of time before the marriage is officially over.

Steffy: And you’ll be waiting for her.

Thomas: [ Sighs ]

Liam: Please– please understand. This is not me bashing you, it’s not me criticizing you. I– I’m just– I’m trying to get you to see how far away from hope logan you are.

[ Liam scoffs ] And you know something, it’s– it’s probably just because you’re too good.

Hope: [ Laughs ] Too good?

Liam: Yeah, you’re too good. You are. You always try to see the best in people. You always believe that people can change.

Hope: I hate to break it to you, liam, but that’s why I fell in love with you. You try to live your life that way.

Liam: Yeah, but not when it comes to people like thomas, I shouldn’t do that and you shouldn’t either. You gotta get out– out– outside of this. You gotta end whatever this is that– that’s going on with thomas and– and step over to my side and see what I see so clearly. Because hope, you’re not alone and there is a path back. Arthritis pain?

Thomas: [ Laughs ] That is a forrester original if I’ve ever seen one.

Ridge: Well, I’m just trying to keep up with my trending son. I’m glad you’re here.

Thomas: Thanks.

Ridge: Haven’t really seen enough of each other lately.

Thomas: Well, things have just been crazy ever since the hope for the future rome event.

Ridge: Um, that was a crazy trip, too, wasn’t it? It was fun.

Thomas: Yeah.

Ridge: You worked hard. You worked on your skills. Years and years have finally paid off and now you get to reap your rewards.

Thomas: Yeah, thanks. It means a lot to hear you say that.

Ridge: Speaking of rewards, how is your relationship with hope? And let’s just assume for a moment that it wasn’t just a kiss in rome. What’s going on with the two of you?

Steffy: Well, it seemed like a great party. Kelly recounted every single moment for me. I think she may have had more fun than beth.

Liam: I– I don’t doubt it. And those two, you really couldn’t find a more perfect pair, could you?

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: I mean, beth just looks up to kelly, like– like she’s the coolest thing ever, you know? And– and kelly, well, she is the coolest, she’s like the most patient older sister you could ask for. It’s just– we– we got really lucky.

Steffy: Yeah, we did. Our big, mixed-up family.

Liam: [ Laughs ] Yeah.

Steffy: So, how did, uh– how things go here with hope?

Liam: Uh, I– I don’t think either one of us wanted to, you know, contaminate beth’s birthday party with our issues, especially since she doesn’t know what’s going on between her parents right now.

Steffy: Yeah, well that’s good.

Liam: It still freaks me out that hope ever turned to thomas in the first place. And I know, but I always felt like, you know, I– I could never get through to her. Like, I– like, no matter how many times I pleaded with her, she just didn’t listen. And today, she kind of did. Like, okay, so– so we’re dropping the presents off at the cabin and it gave us a moment alone to just kind of talk. And… I don’t know, it felt like for the first time, maybe I got through to her.

Brooke: Oh, beth had such a good time at her birthday party, right? She’s so cute, so precious.

Hope: I know, she’s our little miracle girl.

Brooke: Yeah, that’s true. You and liam can never forget what you went through to make sure that she was a part of your lives.

Hope: Did you two plan this? Because liam was over here after the party and he felt the need to remind me of everything we had been through with thomas as well. Not like I would ever forget that horrible night.

Brooke: I know we’re talking about ridge’s son here. And yes, I do see some changes with him, for the better, but we can never forget what he did. How he almost deprived you of raising your daughter, being with her.

Hope: No, I– I hear what you’re saying, I do. And I heard liam too.

Brooke: You did?

Hope: Yes, mom, I did. Uh, liam thinks that i have lost my way and he’s obviously still hurt by what he saw, um, when I kissed thomas in rome.

Brooke: Thankfully, that’s all he knows about.

Hope: Yes, that is all he knows about. But seeing him with beth at the party, how happy she was seeing us together and what an amazing father he is. It just, um… I don’t know, it put things into perspective a little bit for me. So, uh, maybe liam is right and I have lost my way. Uh, ’cause everything I’ve done, I mean, cheating on my husband, sleeping with another man. I mean, that’s not me, right? How could I possibly do that? I– I just think the problem is maybe I… don’t know who I am anymore.

Brooke: [ Chuckles ] Wow. I mean, this is actually– this is– this is great, honey. Really, I– I’m glad to hear this because it means you’re coming back to yourself. I mean, I can see it in your face and in your eyes. You’re being honest. And yes, you got swept up with thomas, but you’re gonna have to put an end to that. And you’re gonna have to focus on your family because I know how much you still love them. You do. So, fight for your family. Please, hope, it’s not too late. It’s never too late.
