Hope: I read everything I could find about Emma’s accident and the police said that there were no witnesses. And you’re telling me that you were there? You saw Emma’s car go off the road and you said nothing.

Thomas: She was driving so fast.

Hope: You were following her!

Thomas: And we were both trying to get to you. To this day, I am still horrified about that night

Hope: All this time.

Thomas: I have been trying to get it out of my mind.

Hope: So what so many people suspected of you… you’re actually admitting is true? That you were on Mulholland the night that Emma died.

Steffy: I love how protective you are, but my brother isn’t the threat you think he is.

Finn: Look, I can’t just ignore what Xander told me. He seems sure.

Steffy: That doesn’t make it true, Finn.

Finn: So you’re just really not concerned that Thomas could be responsible for Emma’s death?

Steffy: No, because the police already looked into it. It was an accident, a terrible accident. Finn, listen to me. Dredging this all up, it isn’t helping. I know my brother has changed. He’s learned from his mistakes. Finn, I promise you, Thomas isn’t a danger to anyone. You need to believe me.

Finn: I hear you, all right? Thomas is your big brother. You’ve spent years looking up to him.

Steffy: In a way, his mistakes hurt me more than anyone.

Finn: Well, maybe he hurt someone else a lot more. Look– look, Steffy, I’m sorry, okay? I’m sorry. I can see the stress that this is causing you.

Steffy: No, I understand that you have questions. I get that you’re concerned. Xander just shows up here. He’s a new patient and he starts spewing all these accusations against my brother. I get it.

Finn: But that’s just the thing. It wasn’t really like that. I mean, I had to pull the story out of him.

Steffy: It doesn’t make it true. There’s no proof of what Xander’s been saying.

Finn: I understand that, but it’s the way Xander reacted, okay? Just saying your brother’s name. It wasn’t like he was putting me on. He truly believes Thomas is– is dangerous.

Steffy: Well, he’s not. Xander is wrong. Don’t listen to him. Listen to me, your wife.

Thomas: I’m so ashamed. I wish I’d come forward sooner. I hated keeping this from you. I wanted to say something so many times and you were so proud of me. Encouraging and supportive. It terrified me this would set us back, make you question everything. And it doesn’t change anything, you know. It– Emma still died because of an accident. But holding it in and holding it back from you, not sharing everything with each other… Yes, I was on Mulholland that night. I was there. I saw Emma’s car go right off the road. All of that is true. But Xander is wrong, Hope. I’m not a murderer. You know me. You have to believe me.

Finn: Look, I want to believe you. I don’t want to believe that Thomas might be capable of murder.

Steffy: He is not. Xander and Emma were close. He was deeply affected by her death. So he wanted to point the finger at someone.

Finn: He told me Thomas threatened him.

Steffy: Thomas has done some very dark things in the past. You know that. And Thomas would be the first person to admit that, But hiding something as disgusting, as gruesome, like a crime? He wouldn’t do that. He’s worked so hard on himself. All this healing. He’s become a better father and Xander doesn’t know any of that because he hasn’t seen it. He’s basing this all on the man he used to be. And even at Thomas’s worst, he wouldn’t be homicidal.

Finn: He was desperate though. All he cared about was getting close to Hope. And if he thought Emma was gonna expose him, come between them? I’m just saying, I know how he is, Steffy. Even recently, when I told him that Hope and him should never be together.

Steffy: Was Thomas ever violent with you?

Finn: No.

Steffy: Did you ever feel as though, I don’t know, you were in danger?

Finn: No.

Steffy: Then what does that tell you? I don’t understand why you’re not trusting your instincts or trusting your wife. And I don’t know why you’re trying to open this wound. Yes, I am very protective and I will do anything to protect my family, but I’m not giving Thomas the benefit of the doubt because he is my brother. I’ve seen that he’s changed and I’m putting my faith in him just like you should put your faith in me.

Finn: Okay. Come here. Look, honey… Honey, I love you, okay? You and the kids are my entire world. And if… Look, if you need me to let this go, I– I– I will.

Steffy: So, you’ll drop it?

Finn: Well, if this is causing you this much stress? Yeah. Okay. I can let it go.

Steffy: Oh, my God.

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: Why are you telling me this now? Hm? Is it because Xander’s back? Thomas He started up. He got Finn involved, but I’m here because I want a life with you. And there can’t be any secrets between us.

Hope: Tell me again. How it happened. I need to hear you say it again.

Thomas: Emma and I argued at the office. What are you talking about? She demanded that I tell you about Beth. Take a breath.

Emma: I can’t calm down. I just overheard–

Thomas: I tried to reason with her. I tried to make her see what that would do to Steffy.

Emma: Shouldn’t Steffy know the truth?

Thomas: My sister loved that baby girl so much. I just needed more time, but she wouldn’t listen.

Emma: There’s nothing you cn do to stop me, out of my way.

Thomas: No.

Emma: Move, now!

Thomas: You’re not going anywhere. She was gonna find you. She was gonna tell you everything and I tried to stop her. But she jumped in her car and she tore off. I thought I could get her to pull over. She was just driving so fast. She must have been, I don’t know, trying to call you or– or– or text you or something. I– I honked, I tried to get her to slow down, but she just went faster. And then I saw her head go down. She must have been reaching for something. And that’s when she lost control. She missed the turn, crashed through the guardrail. Where she went over, no one would have survived. I still have nightmares about it. I– I hear swerving and the brakes. And then not being able to do anything. I’m haunted by it. But I did not run her off the road. Hope, I swear to you. I was there, but I didn’t kill Emma.

Steffy: Look, I know you’re just trying to do the right thing.

Finn: Well, the right thing is for us to stay unified.

Steffy: Yeah. But it is okay if we disagree and we have different opinions.

Finn: Well, you’re my wife and Thomas is your brother. I respect that.

Steffy: I just wish you two could get along.

Finn: Look, I want to get back to that.

Steffy: Yeah, but if you have doubts about Thomas Or you’re troubled by what Xander said, then I don’t know where to go from there.

Finn: Look, what I need to remember and what I can’t forget is how much I love you and how much I missed you and the kids when you were gone. All those nights, I would lay awake just wishing that you would come home. I promised myself that I would never let anything come between us again. So, if you don’t want me to pursue this, I won’t.

Steffy: Well I’m really happy to hear that. We just have so many things going on. Everything we’ve been through. Sheila, our time apart, my grandfather, and now Hope and Thomas are in a relationship.

Finn: Look, there’s been enough turmoil. You’re right. The last thing we need is to go looking for more.

Steffy: Especially when everything’s finally starting to turn around.

Finn: I agree. All I want is a loving, supporting, peaceful family. Your brother included.

Steffy: Okay.

Thomas: When I think back, it’s like I’m remembering someone else. A stranger who did all those misguided things. He did it because he loved you in a messed up way and he wanted to spend his life with you. But I’ve done a since then, thanks to you. Your understanding, your support. I’ve changed my ways completely. When I look back, it’s like I see that man clearly, his selfishness and obsession, but that doesn’t exist anymore and he’s never coming back. Now, did I lie? Did I withhold the truth? I handled that night and pretty much everything at that time all wrong? Yes. I should have told you what happened with Beth. But I was so caught up in my own fear. And I don’t want any more secrets between us. Never again. I don’t want us to ever have to think about that night again. Emma is gone and that is the real tragedy. But can’t we just focus on our own life and our future together?

Hope: I, uh… I have to think about this.

Thomas: Nothing has to change.

Hope: You chased Emma, Thomas. You were on Mulholland that night. You saw her go off the road. She was my friend. She died trying to get to me. Trying to tell me the truth about my daughter, about Beth. Do I believe you’re telling the truth, Thomas? Yes. I do believe you.

Thomas: Thank you.

Steffy: You really would do anything for me.

Finn: No question.

Steffy: How did I get so lucky?

Finn: It’s never been luck for us. It’s loyalty, commitment, trust.

Steffy: Passion?

Finn: We got plenty of that.

Steffy: I think we could use a little more.

Finn: Oh, is that a complaint?

Steffy: No, it’s a proposition.

Finn: I know. What do you have in mind?

Steffy: We can get someone to watch the kids and I’m gonna keep you in bed until the sun comes up.

Finn: Well, my schedule just completely freed up.

Steffy: I am so grateful for you. I really am.

Thomas: I’m sorry, Hope. I hate bringing up these terrible memories. They’re painful for me too. I didn’t want Emma to die. I tried to stop her. You’re disappointed in me. I am too. I did love you then, but it was a messed up flawed kind of love. I was confused. But what I feel for you today is way different. It’s pure and it’s healthy.

Hope: Thomas… We can talk about that another time.

Thomas: Look, I’m not asking you to accept the person I was, but please believe in who I am now. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you, Hope I just want to put that horrible night behind us. I promise I am committed to being the upstanding man that you deserve. Someone you can truly love. You’ve changed me from the man who did all of those terrible things years ago to someone that maybe you’re capable of loving, who’s capable of honoring you and loving you. I wanna be a good father. I wanna be a good husband someday. The best designer for your line and the right man for you. No more secrets, Hope. I told you everything. I swear it’s the truth. And if you can’t forgive me, just tell me you believe that I’m a different man now. A better man, better than I was before. Tell me you know I’ve changed. It may have taken me a really long time to mature and find confidence, but I have. To find true love. It’s all because of you. It’s not obsession, not like it was. I swear. I just love you. I love you so much. I want the world to recognize who we are today and what we can be, moving forward. I want to prove how good I can be. Now, and every single day in the future. You’re wearing that engagement ring around your necklace. That ring represents who I am today and the life that I want to share with you, forever. Please don’t give up on me. Don’t give up on us.
