Steffy: So, you think hope actually heard you? Took your concerns seriously?

Liam: I’m– I’m just saying I think maybe I got through to hope about who thomas really is.

Brooke: Sounds like you and liam had a very good conversation. You don’t know how hopeful this makes me. Yes, I agree with liam, you lost your way. But not anymore. You have to tell thomas it’s over and you have to save your marriage.

Thomas: Okay, so you wanna know what’s going on with hope and me?

Ridge: Seems like a reasonable question. You guys went through a lot, so yeah, I would like to know what’s goin’ on.

Thomas: Well, uh, we are co-parenting douglas, and we’re killin’ it on hope for the future.

Ridge: Please don’t do that. I know what brooke walked in on. She’s not happy about it, I’m not happy about it and I’m concerned. So, I need you to be honest with me.

Thomas: I wasn’t ever trying to hide anything from you, dad. I just– whole situation’s complicated and I–

Rj: Dad! You missed it. Oh! Thomas, hey. Hey. Am I, uh, am I interrupting or–

Ridge: I was just talking to thomas about his relationship with hope.

Liam: Thomas is your brother. You’re gonna defend him. I totally get that.

Steffy: Hope kissed him in rome, not the other way around.

Liam: Yeah, exactly. Right? So, as much as I don’t trust thomas, this really isn’t about him. This is about hope and her choices.

Steffy: And putting your marriage and your future in jeopardy?

Hope: I know it seems like to everyone that I went astray or that thomas led me there and that’s not the case, mom. I had my reasons. Thomas loves me and only me. And that is an assurance that liam cannot provide me because of our history with steffy and I kept hoping that maybe one day, he would change, and I just– I just don’t wanna live my life like you had to with ridge and his divided loyalties.

Brooke: Honey, I understand that. And I respect it because you are respecting yourself, but I have to wonder if there’s something else going on here. I mean, you’ve only been talking like this since you got involved with thomas. All these criticisms towards liam. I have to wonder if it’s some way of justifying your behavior? Being unfaithful to your husband with thomas? These hands used to hold me as a little girl.

Ridge: Well, I’m not gonna get into this. Not now, not with rj here.

Rj: Yeah. I don’t wanna get into it either, but I will say, I’m really worried about my sister. I mean, hope and liam, they have a great family. I mean, after seeing them today with beth, hope is really happy.

Thomas: She should be. Especially today, I mean, it’s an important moment. Seeing your child happy, fulfilled, succeeding, it’s– it’s amazing. I’m glad it went so well.

Rj: Yeah, it did. I know that you and hope kissed in rome and I don’t know if anything else has been going on, but after seeing them today, together, with beth… I just, I really think that hope should go back to liam.

Steffy: So, you told hope all of this? That she lost her way, thomas can never be trusted and you think she heard you?

Liam: I– I hope she heard me. I– I desperately hope she heard me, yeah. What?

Steffy: No, nothing.

Liam: What?

Steffy: I’m– I’m just– I’m confused. I’m just trying to figure out what this– this– this means.

Liam: What th– I don’t– I don’t follow.

Steffy: Okay, you and hope signed divorce papers. Your marriage was on the verge of being over. Are you telling me that’s not the case anymore? You want hope back?

Brooke: I admire the fact that you would like to be with a man that is committed to you and only to you. And you deserve that. But I have to wonder if that’s just an excuse to justify your behavior. I know you, hope, and I know that you feel bad about what you’ve done with thomas. You know, at the party, I could see the love between you and liam and beth. What a sweet little family you are. And that’s still there. And you could have that. But now you signed the divorce papers, so–

Hope: Well, apparently, they haven’t been filed just yet.

Brooke: No? Well, that’s great! Honey, why don’t you just talk to me? Tell me what you’re feeling.

Hope: You know, obviously today, seeing beth at her birthday party with her dad… had an impact on me. Yeah, uh, I– I was wrong for what I did with thomas, mom, but at the same time, I… I do have feelings for him and thomas does love me, fully, with his whole heart, but I think you can also be right too, which is that… I don’t know. Maybe I am looking for excuses for my behavior. Liam came over. He, um, reminded me of everything we had been through, with beth and thomas’s involvement in that and uh… maybe I… didn’t want to think about that because of how painful it was.

Brooke: Yeah. Thomas is wrong.

Hope: I do believe that thomas has changed. But mom, maybe I have changed too because when I look in the mirror… I don’t know if I recognize myself anymore. I think I just… I wanted a distraction. There was hope for the future, and then there was the show and then there was italy and then there was thomas and… I got caught up in him.

Brooke: Well, like you mentioned, nobody knows the full extent of your involvement with thomas, except for ridge and me.

Hope: Well, no one should know because it is none of their business.

Brooke: I’m relieved to hear you say that, sweetie, because this is hard for me, too, you know. As a parent, I hate to see you suffer. But… I am relieved. I am because I can see. I can see that you’re becoming yourself again.

Hope: Yeah, I guess we’ll have to see if it’s too late.


Thomas: Rj, have I told you lately how grateful I am to have you back in town?

Rj: Come on, thomas, I’m being serious.

Thomas: I know. I know you are. So am I. ‘Kay, look at– I really respect where you’re coming from, both of you and it’s kind of nice, having family around, lookin’ out for me.

Ridge: I couldn’t agree more. We’re stronger together.

Thomas: I promise, like the both of you, I– I just want hope’s happiness. Actually had a similar conversation with steffy. Look, um… I promise both of you that I’m not gonna be the one who hurts hope. Not ever again, ‘kay? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I actually do have a few things to take care of, so I’ll see you.

Brooke: It’s never too late, honey. And the logans never give up. Come on, you know that. You and liam, you have such a beautiful, special family. And yeah, there are issues, but you love each other. And unfortunately, you got swept up with thomas, and… things happened, but that’s over. You can focus on your family. And you said so yourself, you didn’t file those divorce papers. So? That means it’s not too late, right? It’s never too late.

Hope: You’re right. You’re right, mom. You’re right.

Liam: I feel like you’re not hearing me. I might have actually gotten through to hope. That’s big, if true.

Steffy: Yeah, that– it is, it’s big. It’s– it’s great. I’m just wondering if you’re not hearing yourself. You think you got hope to wake up, come to her senses. And if she is willing to put an end to whatever is going on with thomas, are you willing to forgive her? Repair your marriage? Keep your family intact?

[ Knocking on door ]

Thomas: All right. Hey! Hey, come on in.

Hope: Hi.

Thomas: I, uh– I wasn’t sure I was actually gonna see you, you know? I hadn’t really communicated and beth’s party and all, and I– I– we already talked about this, but I wish I could have been there. You know, but with liam and the possibility of drama.

Hope: Yeah. I’m– it was, uh, it was great. It was, um… big day.

Thomas: Well, good. Well, I’m just glad to be a part of that big day now. Missed you.

Thomas: Hey. What’s– what’s wrong? To 50 years with my best friend.

[ Phone chiming ]

Ridge: So, you came by just to say hello?

Rj: Yes and I might have brought you something, but you cannot tell mom. You cannot tell mom!

Ridge: Don’t put me in that position. I don’t want to do that, I don’t want to have secrets with your mom. This is not what we do, unless cupcakes are involved. Ah, you’re a good man. Thank you. Someone raised you right.

Rj: Course, but hey! I expect to see you by the pool tomorrow, okay? I got some core routines we should try out.

Ridge: I’ll be there, for sure.

Rj: Come on! I’m just lookin’ out for you.

Ridge: Mm-hmm. Lookin’ out for a lot of people these days, aren’t you?

Rj: I– I hope it comes across that way, ’cause I’m not, like, I’m not like indicting him or anything. I mean, I still don’t fully comprehend why hope kissed thomas in rome, but, I mean, she has a family. It’s worth fighting for, right?

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: That marriage is definitely worth fighting for and so is your health, mister. I see that!

Ridge: How did this–

Brooke: Why don’t you enjoy it now because tomorrow, you’re gonna be working on your core.

Ridge: This is the most unkindest cut of all. You knew she was comin’.

Rj: No, I didn’T. I didn’t know. So mom, how did– how did everything go with hope?

Brooke: Good. Turns out, she might think that her marriage is worth fighting for. It may not be the end for hope and liam.

Steffy: It’s a logical question. After everything you two have been through, what you mean to each other, hope suddenly has this epiphany. Are you willing to fight for your marriage? Look, what– what’s going on with finn and me, it’s awful and I don’t want the same for you and hope–

Liam: I– I get what you are saying. How ’bout this, all right? I love hope, of course, but it’s not that simple. This is not about getting back together with her, for me. Sh– she’s the mother of my child, right? We built a whole life together. I still care about her and her well-being and her safety and that’s why I’m not giving up trying to get through to her because this is about… it’s about hope becoming hope again. Finding her way back to herself, and… away from thomas.

Thomas: I can see something’s going on. What is it?

Hope: Sweetheart,

what was your favorite part?

Beth: Being with mommy

and daddy. I love you.

Liam: Aw. Aw.

Thomas: Hope, something’s obviously different about you. What’s wrong?

Liam: How do you turn

to the man who tried to keep

you? I mean, what he did,

it was evil.

How do you let him

come between us?

Hope: I don’t– I don’t– well, I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m doing. I mean, what are– what have we done? I don’t–

Thomas: Okay. Uh, obviously, something’s wrong. Um, something’s really bothering you. I can tell, okay? So, what happened at beth’s birthday?

Hope: Just reminded me of, um… all of those… hurtful things we had been through.

Thomas: Ah. With, uh, with me. Things that were my fault. Right. Um… you know, I’M… way past that. You know that because, well, when you kissed me at the colosseum, that was beautiful. And these nights that we’ve had recently have been wonderful. And I promise, I– I– I love you in a true way, and I do, I do want a life with you.

Hope: It was just hard. Being with beth and liam and our little family unit together and… liam and I, we went to, um, drop off her gifts back at the cabin and we got to talking and he reminded me of all of the pain and suffering that we had to go through during those years when we thought we had almost lost her and also, of course, reminded me about… you keeping that truth from me.

Thomas: I– I see what you’re saying. But that’s– that was a different me. You know I’m not that person anymore. I’m so sorry that that’s a part of my past. I wish I could go back and rewrite it, but I can’t, right? But you know that I’m a different person, I mean you’ve– you’ve– you’ve– you’ve told me that, over and over again. So, I’m just, um… I guess I’m– I’m a little lost. Um… did liam get in your head or something?

Hope: But everything liam said was true.

Thomas: Yeah. Okay. Um… all right, well then… I guess there’s only one thing I can do.
