Thomas: Marry me, hope. I have loved you for as long as I can remember. I promise to you that I will be a wonderful husband and a father, a great father. Say you’ll marry me, hope. Say you’ll be my wife.

Steffy: Yep. Yeah, that’s great. Okay, well send me a list of your preferred photographers and we’ll get back to you. All right. Thank you so much, marianne. All right, bye. Liam, what brings you here?

Liam: Uh, I was gonna come up with an excuse, like I’m dropping something off for kelly, but truth is, I just, uh, I know you’ve got a lot going on and um, I’m a bit concerned. I mean, what happened to sheila is one thing, but especially finn’s reaction to her death.

Finn: Hey, I’m sorry luna’s upset with you. I mean, I know you guys are so close. To be honest, you’re more like sisters than mother and daughter.

Poppy: I know, but with this, she doesn’t want to talk to me. She wants to talk to her dad.

Finn: And that has something to do with me?

Luna: I’m sorry.

Bill: Why? You have nothing to apologize for.

Luna: I don’t know, because I’m all emotional in front of you and you barely even know me.

Bill: Well, I’d like to get to know you better. I’m not your father. But, I could be a shoulder for you to cry on. Or maybe cry over, because I do kinda like this shirt. I don’t want you to ruin it. You can talk to me, luna.

Finn: I mean, you and luna are family. If you guys are having any kind of trouble, I want to help fix it any way I can. I’m just– I’m just not seeing what I can do, exactly.

Poppy: You can give luna what she’s looking for. What she wants more than anything. Talk to her, finn.

Luna: You’re being really nice.

Bill: Do me a favor, keep that to yourself. I have a reputation to uphold.

Luna: Don’t worry, I’m not gonna tell anyone how nice you are about listening to my problems.

Bill: It doesn’t cost me a thing. And who knows, I mean, maybe i can offer you some actual help. Or at least a little guidance.

Luna: It’s just been really frustrating. You know, because all my life, my mom has been like my best friend. Someone that I can confide in, someone that I can talk to about literally anything. Um, but now…

Bill: You wish you had your father to turn to.

Luna: Yeah, but my mom won’t tell me who he is.

Steffy: I appreciate your concern.

Liam: But you’re about to tell me there’s no reason to be.

Steffy: There isn’T. Not in the long run. Sheila’s death has presented a bit of a problem, but we’re gonna get through it. My relationship is fine with finn. I’m not worried about us. I’m worried about thomas.

Liam: What’s wrong with thomas?

Steffy: What do you think? Hope. Hope is wearing thomas’ engagement ring on a chain around her neck. I mean, that is ridiculous. You know she doesn’t really love him. She’s just leading him on. She’s never gonna truly commit herself to him.

Thomas: I designed that dress for what I hope will be one of the most important occasions of our lives. And you look more beautiful than I ever could’ve imagined. By the way, I love you so much. And I know I’ve said that a thousand times, but I… it couldn’t hurt to say it one more, right? I do. I love you. Now, this ring has been around your neck for, I think, long enough. It deserves to be on your hand. I want the world to see us walking into the future together, hand in hand, side by side. All you have to do is say you’ll marry me.

Finn: You want me to talk to luna?

Poppy: Yes.

Finn: Sure, I’m more than happy to spend time with her. But if the person she wants to talk to is her dad… and look, I don’t mean to pry, but do you– do you know– do you know who luna’s father is?

Luna: What do you think, bill? I mean, don’t you think I have the right to know who my father is?

Bill: What I think doesn’t matter. This is between you and your mom. But I was curious enough to ask poppy if it was me. The timing works. The night we spent together at the festival. And when you were born.

Luna: She said it wasn’T.

Bill: Right.

Luna: God. This is just so unfair. You know, whoever he is, I’m his daughter. You know, I feel like we deserve to know each other. My mom was just wrong for keeping us apart.

Bill: Did you ever think that maybe poppy knows something that you don’t?

Luna: What, like you mean like he’s a bad person?

Bill: Not necessarily that. Look, this is what I know. Your mom loves you more than anything. I’m sure she has your best interests at heart.

Steffy: I want thomas to be happy. I want him to find peace, love, family, but hope is stringing him along.

Liam: Well, I want hope to not be with thomas at all, so there’s that. Eh, maybe if I handled things differently.

Steffy: What are you talking about? Please, hope always acts like she’s the victim here, lamenting the end of your marriage when she was the one who kissed thomas in rome. She’s not so innocent.

Liam: Thank you for acknowledging that. Not many people do.

Steffy: No, I’m just losing patience here. She already messed with your emotions, now she’s doing the exact same thing to thomas. She’s leading him on. Making him believe there’s a chance that she’s gonna marry him.

Thomas: We have wasted enough time, hope. I wanna be a family. You, me, douglas and beth, so say you’ll marry me. This is a make it, break it moment. You and me, together. I want to spend the rest of our lives with each other. Say you’ll be my wife.

Hope: I love you. Thomas, I– I really do. But I… I can’t accept your proposal. I’m– I’m not ready. Why do dermatologists worldwide recommend

Poppy: If I told you that luna was conceived in love, would that answer your question?

Finn: I mean, I just– I don’t get it. You had to have known the day would eventually come when luna would want to know who her father is, so why not just let it happen?

Poppy: Because it’s always just been luna and me. The two of us were always enough.

Finn: Maybe for you, but I could see a world where luna wouldn’t wanna upset you by admitting that she– that she did need him.

Poppy: What she needs is a strong male presence in her life. She loves you, finn, and she looks up to you, and you could easily fill those shoes. Please, will you do it? Will you be that male presence in my daughter’s life?

Luna: I’m sorry. You– you came here to see my mom and instead you got me crying over a father that I’ve never known.

Bill: I don’t mind. I kind of like being someone you can trust with your feelings.

Luna: You know, you have really kind eyes. It’s probably the first thing my mom saw when she first met you all those years ago. My mom always says that the, uh, the eyes are the window to the soul.

Bill: I don’t know that my eyes have always revealed the best part of me. But they did that night that I first looked at your mom. And maybe that’s why she returned the favor. You know, she hasn’t changed. I mean, she’s still that same take me or leave me breath of fresh air. And– and I’m– I’m pretty guarded with women at this point in my life.

Luna: Why’s that?

Bill: Money. I have it and a lot of women want it.

Luna: Well, my mom doesn’t really care about money.

Bill: Yeah, that’s one of the reasons I’m so drawn to her. Your mom is an incredible woman and she has raised an equally remarkable daughter.

Steffy: Hope has been out of control since she broke up with you. Now, she’s laser focused on thomas and thomas believes that they actually have a future together. I don’t believe that. I think he is in for a world of hurt.

Liam: Or she is, or they both are, I– whatever. I think we can both agree that hope and thomas is a toxic combination.

Hope: Thomas, I’m sorry. The last thing I would ever want to do is hurt you and I can tell that I have.

Thomas: You’re turning me down again.

Hope: Again, please understand. It has nothing to do with you. You, you’re amazing. And you’re wonderful and the time that we share together, it brings me so much joy and happiness. And I know– I know that you love me unconditionally and it means the world. But I just got out of a marriage. And I’m trying to focus on myself and the kids and my career and– and my relationship to you. Thomas, I love you. I love you. I just– I’m not– I’m not ready for a forever commitment. I’m sorry, but I can’t be. I’m sorry.

Thomas: No.

Hope: I’m sorry, thomas, wait!

Finn: You don’t even have to ask. Of course, I’ll be there for luna, anytime she needs me. And even when she thinks she doesn’T.

Poppy: Thank you. No, really, that means a lot. Thank you.

Finn: No, and hey, I mean, you looked after me when I was her age. All the time we spent together, how close we became.

Poppy: Yeah, and look at us now, all these years later. You’re a brilliant doctor with a beautiful family and I have a grown up daughter with a mind of her own. And I miss the days when luna would take her lead from me.

Finn: You said that she’s always been curious about her father.

Poppy: Yeah, but I’ve always been able to steer her off that path. But, I don’t know, this time– this time feels different.

Finn: You know what, I think, just go with it. Respectfully, as luna’s cousin, I think it’s time that she finds out who her father really is.

Bill: When you find your dad, and I believe that one day you will, he’s going to be so happy and proud to call you his daughter. What? What– what– what did I say? I don’t want to upset you. You see, I’m– I’m just so clumsy.

Luna: No, no, no, you didn’t upset me. I mean, you did, but in a good way. Because you’re so kind and caring, and obviously I’m an emotional wreck right now, so…

Bill: Tell me what I can do. How can I help you without stepping on poppy’s toes?

Luna: I don’t know.

Bill: Well, if you think of something, don’t hesitate.

Luna: I really like you, bill. I mean, what if you were my father?

Bill: Well, among other things, you would be filthy rich.

Luna: Well, I’m kind of like my mom in that way. I don’t really care about money, so…

Bill: Ah, well, there you have it. You’re not my daughter.

Steffy: Thomas, what is it? What’s wrong?

Thomas: I– I don’t know. I was just– I was so excited. I was– I was so ready, I… knew what I wanted, and it didn’t happen.

Steffy: What didn’t?

Thomas: I’m such an idiot. I, uh, I asked hope to marry me again.

Steffy: And she turned you down again. Oh, god. I knew this was gonna happen, thomas. You don’t deserve any of this. I mean, she is bad news.

Thomas: I don’t get it. I don’t understand what I did wrong. Like, I– I gave her the ring. She’s– she’s been wearing it.

Steffy: She’s been wearing it as a necklace, thomas.

Thomas: I offered it to her and she didn’t refuse it. There was a potential for a future. She didn’t just reject it or something.

Steffy: Okay, thomas, thomas, this really has to stop, okay? You’re setting yourself up for heartbreak over and over again. Hope is never gonna give you what you want.

Thomas: Don’t say that.

Steffy: It’s true. And what she did just proves it. She claims to love you, but she’s never going to commit herself to you. So you need to let her go, okay? You need to move forward. Focus on the future without hope.
