Luna: Why aren’t you answering my question, mom?

Poppy: Sweetheart, where is this all coming from?

Luna: I told you, rj and i were talking about the timeline. Your past with bill spencer. The night that you guys spent together at the music festival a little over 20 years ago. And then I was born less than a year later. Is it him, mom? Is bill spencer my father?

Bill: Initial here. Here. Sign. Date. Congratulations. Welcome home.

Rj: Thank you, sir. Well, it’s official. Bill spencer’s my landlord.

[ Bill laughs ]

Bill: No wild parties. And don’t touch the décor.

Rj: Well, is that it? That’s the only two clauses?

Bill: Did you read anything you just signed?

Rj: I’m making a– I’m joking.

Bill: I know you are. Listen, I have faith in you. And I know that luna’s gonna be spending a lot of time here, so she’ll keep you on the straight and narrow.

Rj: I hope so.

Bill: Keep the place nice.

Rj: Yeah.

Bill: Yes.

Rj: I will. That’s sound advice. I will.

Bill: Yes, yes. From what I can tell, you are dating a remarkable young lady.

Thomas: You know, I’m gonna head over to the house later and see granddad.

Ridge: Good. He’ll appreciate the company.

Thomas: It’s good to see him getting stronger, you know.

Ridge: He is getting stronger. Still has a ways to go. He has a follow-up tomorrow, and we’ll see if he gets some news. I still haven’t heard yours yet.

Thomas: My news?

Ridge: You said there was something going on with you and hope.

Thomas: Oh, um… look, I love her, you know, and I– I don’t want anything to come between us.

Hope: Mom, I have to show you what beth made in art class today. Look what the teacher sent me.

Brooke: Oh! Oh, that’s beautiful. I love the colors.

Hope: They had to paint their emotions, and beth said that she feels warm, happy and sunny.

Brooke: That must make you feel good. Given everything that you’re going through since your divorce with liam.

Hope: If you are about to take a dig at thomas, please don’T.

Brooke: Did I mention thomas?

Hope: No, but I know how you are still worried about our involvement with each other.

Ridge: Is somebody causing problems for you and hope?

Thomas: No, I’m not gonna let that happen. And look, the challenges of the past, they won’t be an issue if I’m honest about them.

Ridge: That’s the right attitude.

Thomas: Yeah, and I do believe that hope still has faith in me.

Ridge: Is there a question about that?

Thomas: No, I mean, not necessarily. Not about my feelings for her. I’ve made those very clear. And I don’t think it’s necessarily her feelings for me. I… I may have done something.

Ridge: You may have done what?

Thomas: I…

[ Sighs ] Not may have. I– I did. I– I, um, I proposed to hope.

Hope: Mom, I really don’t want to have to keep defending my relationship with thomas to you every time we speak.

Brooke: Well, I would like to know how you feel about it. I mean, last time we spoke, you said that there could be a future between you and thomas. I mean, you have to be honest with yourself, hope. You really think you could do that? After everything that’s happened? After everything that he’s done? What you know about him? You really think that you could have a serious relationship with thomas?

Luna: Look, I know that this probably seems like it’s coming out of nowhere, but I– I need to know the truth. So please just answer me, mom. Is bill spencer my father?

Poppy: No, honey. Bill isn’t your father. I mean, it’s funny you would even think that.

Luna: It’s not funny to me. Every single time I would bring up a man from your past, that’s always your answer. You always say, “of course not. He can’t be your father. Okay, then who is my father, mom? I don’t know a single thing about him. Why? What are you keeping from me?


Ridge: So you proposed to hope, and she said maybe.

Thomas: She was a little too thrown to give me an answer.

Ridge: Oh, yeah, you said you caught her off guard.

Thomas: Right, I did, and… look, but we were talking about the future, right? And how I feel about her.

Ridge: But she didn’t think you were gonna propose to her.

Thomas: I wanted it to be a surprise.

Ridge: Okay. Thomas, you–

Thomas: Dad, look, hope needs a little more time, and that’s fine. I’m willing to wait. I love her so much. And one day, she’s going to take that ring off her necklace and put it on her finger, and it’s gonna make me the happiest man in the world.

Brooke: Honey, you’ve been so quiet recently. What is going on? Just talk to me.

Hope: If I do, can you promise not to turn it into a lecture?

[ Brooke huffs ]

Brooke: Just tell me the truth.

Hope: About if I see myself with thomas?

Brooke: Yeah. Can you see yourself with thomas in a serious relationship? Not this situation that you have going on now.

Hope: Mom, he loves me. He is committed to me.

Brooke: Okay, but how do you feel about him? If you don’t feel the same way, you’re just leading him on, and that’s not fair to thomas. And it could be dangerous.

Hope: Oh, mom, stop. He is not that man anymore. He loves me. It is real. It is beautiful. It’s not some delusion. And the only reason I thought that maybe I’m not ready to get married yet is–

Brooke: Married? Did he propose?

Hope: He did.

Brooke: Oh, my god, hope. What did you say? Well, you’re not wearing his ring.

[ Sighs ] I’m just glad you said no.

Bill: I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that there is something special about the nozawa women.

Rj: No, no, I agree with you 100%.

Bill: I mean, they make you sit up and take notice. I mean, there– there could be a– a crowd of people and all you see is her.

Rj: That’s– that’s exactly how I feel about luna. You really only talked to poppy and met her that one time?

Bill: Sometimes that’s all it takes.

Rj: Very true. I mean, but you two must have made like a really powerful connection. I mean, it must be crazy seeing her now. Is it?

Bill: I could hardly believe it.

Rj: But you– you recognized poppy right away. After– after one– one night, just like a few hours together?

Bill: That evening we spent together is one that I will never forget.

Poppy: Luna, sweetheart. I thought you were happy. Things were going so well. This hasn’t come up in so long.

Luna: Yeah, well, rj and I were discussing your history with bill and how you met and that– that one magical night that you two shared together. Did you hook up with him, mom? Were– were you two intimate?

Poppy: Luna, I’ve always been open with you and I never wanted you to be embarrassed about these things, but I don’t like being interrogated. I would never do that to you.

Luna: Okay. I’ll take that as a yes. The timeline matches up. And bill could be my father. Are you lying to me, mom? With the freestyle libre 3 system…

Rj: I just– I just think it’s interesting. You know there’s– it’s like there’s something pulling you and poppy back together again.

Bill: Yeah, well, it’s about time my luck finally turned around.

Rj: Yeah, it might be good luck for all three of you. Well, you know, because, um… luna and her mom are really close, and they’ve been on their own for a really long time. You know, luna seeing her mom happy, it– it means a lot to her.

Bill: Well, my boys feel the same way. And I want poppy to get to know them.

Rj: Yeah, luna too. I think she’d fit right in.

Bill: I’m sure they could learn a lot from each other. But before we start introducing families, poppy and I have some more catching up to do.

Rj: Yeah, no, you two should definitely do that. And, uh, who knows? Poppy being back might give your life an unexpected gift.

Luna: See, this is why I never ask about my father. It makes you so uncomfortable.

Poppy: I’m not lying to you, baby.

Luna: Well, you’re not being completely honest with me either.

Poppy: Well, I’m telling you the truth. The same thing I say every time you bring this up. I am your mother. I’m an independent woman, and I am your only parent. I try to be everything that you need. And, yeah, there were times that we struggled.

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: But you were always safe and secure and loved beyond measure. You’re the reason for every decision that I’ve made ever since I learned… that I was pregnant with you. And I love you with all of my being. Please… please tell me that’s enough.

Ridge: So hope hasn’t told anyone that you proposed?

Thomas: No, we kind of decided to keep it to ourselves for now. Well, we did. Obviously, I told you, and I’m kind of hoping you might not tell brooke.

Ridge: Yeah, listen, son… I’m proud of you. You’ve made good, healthy choices and I see you standing right here. I see who you are. You put yourself out there, but now this is up to hope. Don’t pressure her.

Thomas: No, of course not. I won’T. Look, she’s got me. Always. And I gotta say, I– I really love the fact that you, time after time, you show me this– you have like faith in me, and you give me this unwavering support and it…

[ Sighs ] …It means the world.

Ridge: You’re my boy. You have one of your own, so you know what that feels like.

Thomas: Yeah.

Ridge: Fathers and sons.

Thomas: Same is true for mothers and daughters.

Brooke: Oh, honey, you are such a good person. And I know you care about thomas, but he should have realized you’re not ready to make a decision like that. I mean, a marriage proposal out of nowhere?

Hope: Okay, I– I will admit I was a little surprised.

Brooke: You are still trying to process the end of your marriage with liam.

Hope: Okay, yes, I am.

Brooke: Your whole world was turned upside down.

Hope: And thomas helped me back.

Brooke: Helped? I thought your involvement with him was just sort of a reaction to…

Hope: A reaction?

Brooke: Okay, look, it’s been a very confusing time. But, honey, you did the right thing. And if thomas loves you as much as he says he does, he’ll understand. But you can’t go through with this. You can’t accept his proposal. Not after everything that he’s done.

Hope: Well, if it makes you feel better, I– I didn’t say yes. But I didn’t exactly say no either. At dot’s an ordinary pretzel just isn’t enough.

Poppy: I know I couldn’t give you the kind of life that rj had growing up. Okay? It wasn’t easy. We didn’t have luxuries, but we had each other.

Luna: I love the life that we share together.

Poppy: I tried to provide for you.

Luna: I know that, I know. I mean, you devoted your entire life to me.

Poppy being your mom is the best and most rewarding thing I’ve ever done in my life. All of my pride, all of my joy, it’s right here.

Luna: I got all of my values and my ambition and confidence from you. Look, this is not the reason why I’m asking about my father okay? I’m not trying to look for something better. I love the life that we have, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s just sometimes, when I look in the mirror, there’s so many, like, question marks above my head. Like there’s so many parts of me that I don’t know about myself.

Poppy: But I don’t want you to feel that way.

Luna: Okay, but you have to understand.

Poppy: Yes, I do, but… you know what? You don’t have to. Look at me. We’re nozawa women. What have we got, huh? We’ve got nozawa. Just me and you. The sisterhood, right? Come on, huh? Do it.

Luna: Nozawa power.

Poppy: You’re my entire world.

Luna: Love you, mom.

Ridge: Let’s not worry about brooke right now. You and hope, you’ve been there for each other like no one else has.

Thomas: Thanks, dad.

Ridge: You made your intentions clear. You proposed to her, and if hope had any concerns, she would have said no.

Thomas: Right, but she didn’t say no.

Ridge: She didn’T. So all you can do now is be honest and tell her the truth.

Thomas: And just wait for hope’s response.

Ridge: Yeah. Here’s the good news. She’s got the ring. If this is supposed to happen, love will find a way. Come here.

Thomas: Hey.

Brooke: Why are you wearing thomas’s ring on your necklace?

Hope: Well, he gave it to me.

Brooke: But when you propose, you give a person a ring if they accept, and you didn’t accept.

Hope: No, I– I couldn’T.

Brooke: No, of course you couldn’T. You may have forgiven thomas, but how could you possibly forget everything that he has done?

Hope: That is not the reason why, mom. I needed more time. And while I am doing that, I am going to keep this ring close to my heart.

Brooke: And whose idea was that? Look, I– I’m sorry, but I don’t find this funny or cute or romantic or any of that. To me, this reminds me of thomas’s old behavior.

Hope: Oh my gosh, mom. Are you kidding? It’s like no matter what he does, you find fault with it. It’s like you cannot let it go. Mom, the reason I asked for more time is because I need to figure some things out for myself. Yes, I am still dealing with the end of my marriage, but I also need to make sure that the kids are okay. That they are happy, that they are healthy, that they are stable before I go making any more giant, life-changing decisions. And, oh, by the way, don’t you want me to be happy?

Brooke: Oh, my god, hope! Yes, of course I want you to be happy. The way you were when you were with liam.

Hope: Oh, my gosh, mom! Liam left me! Thomas never has. He has been consistent. He has been supportive. And it’s like you just– you refuse to accept that– that he has changed. Mom, he has become a positive force in my life, both professionally and personally. What?

Brooke: So you’re saying that there’s a possibility of a future between you and thomas? Honey… please, I am begging you. Don’t accept his proposal. Please. You cannot become thomas’ wife.
