[ Intense music playing ]

Hope: We overcame so much to be together. Everyone’s objections, everything that has happened in the past, and thomas, it’s been worth it, right?

Thomas: I thought so.

Hope: Don’t do that. Not past tense. Thomas, we share something special. You make me feel a way that I’ve never felt with anyone else before.

Thomas: But you won’t marry me.

Hope: Ugh! Because I need more time! Do I really have to explain this, thomas? You know my history with liam. You know I just got divorced, and, god, I just wanted a moment to breathe, to discover who I am. And I– I thought we were on that same journey together. I– I really thought you understood. Thomas, please. Do not let steffy get in your head. Don’t let her destroy what we share. I– I can’t lose you.

Steffy: Hope had her way with thomas for way too long. That’s about to end. She’s in for a rude awakening.

Brooke: That’s my daughter you’re talking about.

Steffy: Oh, I know. Hope’s more and more like you every day.

Ridge: All right, why don’t–

Brooke: Obviously you think that’s a bad thing.

Steffy: Look, this wouldn’t bother me if thomas’s heart wasn’t at risk. It’s not like back in the day when you were running around, targeting my family, and you said that you were doing it– that you were acting out of love. Like, hope doesn’t even wanna pretend that she loves thomas.

Brooke: She does love him.

Ridge: All right, let’s just all take a breath, take a step back.

Steffy: No, I’m not gonna do that. Hope’s continuing the logan tradition. It’s obvious, and I’m not gonna stand by and let her hurt him.

Brooke: I am trying very hard not to be offended. But I can’t take all the hope bashing.

Steffy: It’s not bashing if it’s the truth. Hope is just turning into you, brooke. I mean, the way she is seducing my brother, targeting him? Thomas is completely devastated, because she is using him.

Brooke: That’s not true. She has real feelings for thomas.

Steffy: How many times is he gonna propose to her? How many times is she gonna turn him down while she’s wearing his engagement ring on a chain around her neck? That is totally unacceptable, and it needs to end. I think it’s happening right now.

Hope: Steffy is working against us. She’s in your ear. She’s trying to break us up. She’s making assumptions. She’s saying things about me that are just not true, thomas. Just because I can’t accept your proposal doesn’t mean that I don’t wanna be with you. I love what we have together.

Thomas: What do we have together, exactly? Is– is there commitment? Is this a relationship? Are we just, like, going steady? Are we building a foundation for the future, or is this… you taking out some revenge against your mom, or your ex, or my sister, or my family, whatever?

Hope: What?

Thomas: Maybe it’s not that emotional. Maybe it’s just you taking a walk on the wild side with the bad boy.

[ Hope scoffs ]

Hope: Thomas, you know that is not true.

Thomas: I don’t know anything, hope. That’s why I’m asking the question. How long do I have to wait? Huh? Will you ever love me the way that I love you?


Brooke: Why are you so invested in hope and thomas getting married? Why can’t they just be together?

Steffy: I’m not the one who’s invested. That would be thomas, who’s getting jerked around by hope. He deserves better. Like, dad, I thought you would agree with me on this.

Ridge: I do agree. Honestly, I just want thomas to do whatever makes him happy.

Brooke: Exactly. Well, I want the same thing for hope, and you need to stay out of this. You need to let them figure out their own relationship.

Steffy: Look, I’m not gonna apologize for defending my brother.

Ridge: And you shouldn’T. And that’s all she’s doing. She’s not going after hope at all.

Steffy: Oh, yes, I am. I want hope out of thomas’s life for good. I’m done with her leading him on, toying with his emotions. She’s not gonna break his heart anymore. The only person that’s gonna have a broken heart will be hope, not thomas.

Thomas: See, I’ve been asking myself that question since you turned me down. Will you ever be able to love me the way that I love you? No reservations, no conditions.

Hope: Please don’t doubt my feelings for you, thomas. Please don’t start that now. I love the man that you’ve become. This man. Kind, compassionate, talented, funny, an amazing father. Thomas, I don’t even have the words to describe how I feel, how you make me feel. It’s something I’ve– I’ve never experienced with anyone else before, and… it’s exhilarating being with you, and I– I don’t want that to change.

Thomas: See, but that’s the thing. Everything changes. Things progress.

Hope: Thomas, there is not just one set timeline in order for us to be a couple that we have to follow.

Thomas: Okay, so you– what, do you want this to always just be some breezy thing? Just never worrying about the future, always living right now in this moment?

Hope: Gosh, you are making this sound so much more casual than it is, and you know that. There is no one else for me, thomas. I adore you. And I’m sorry, I am sorry that I disappointed you. I am sorry that I couldn’t say yes. I am just not ready to be married again.

Thomas: When will you be ready?

Hope: You know I can’t answer that.

Thomas: Months? Years? Will you ever really be ready?

[ Hope scoffs ] See, the thing is, is… I don’t know if you really can answer that question. I don’t know if you believe that you ever could be ready, and that’s why I’m leaving.

Hope: You’re leaving?

Thomas: Yeah. This is too painful for me, hope. And maybe steffy’s right.

Hope: Steffy? No!

Thomas: Look, I know that this– this is not your fault. You’re not doing this on purpose, but when you wore that ring in front of me on the necklace, it just– it was too hard. It hurts too much. I can’t do it anymore. And I love you too much to put myself through that. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Brooke: Did you seriously just say that? You don’t care if you see hope hurt?

Steffy: I warned hope, do not play with thomas’s emotions. And we all know why. Everything that thomas went through. He’s vulnerable to her, so either she’s all in or she’s all out. But she doesn’t really care, ’cause she’s a logan, and all you guys care about is your needs and your wants and you, you, you.

Brooke: Seriously? Are you gonna let her talk to me like that?

Steffy: My dad doesn’t have to tell me to do anything.

Ridge: All right, I would ask you to maybe step back a little, because I know you’re worried about your brother, I know you’re concerned about him, but attacking brooke and hope is not helping us.

Steffy: I’m not attacking brooke, I’m just telling the truth. All brooke’s history.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Here we go, dredging that up.

Ridge: What are you trying to accomplish with this now?

Steffy: I am just saying that all the chaos and the pain that brooke brought into your life, hope is doing the exact same thing to thomas. Hope is following in her mother’s footsteps, and I’m not going to allow it! It is unacceptable. It needs to end.

Hope: You cannot possibly believe that I wore your ring to be cruel. Thomas, cruelty would’ve been me accepting the proposal, knowing that I wasn’t ready for marriage.

Thomas: Why did you take the ring and wear it on your necklace?

Hope: Because I thought it was a nice gesture to have it close to my heart as I was deciding!

Thomas: Yeah, but you never really had any intention of marrying me from the start. See, when you put it on, I saw hope for our future.

Hope: Thomas, you asked me to wear your ring on my necklace. You were the one who put it there.

Thomas: Yes, because I expected you at some point to take it off and actually wear it on your finger. But, if you really wanted that from the start, you would’ve accepted it when I gave it to you.

Hope: Yeah, you’re really starting to sound like steffy.

Thomas: Maybe she’s right.

Hope: Oh, god. Can we just stop already, please? I love you.

Thomas: Yeah. You love me. Just not enough to marry me. And I can’t keep doing it, hope. It hurts too much to– to be built up and encouraged to having it all fall apart, okay? At some point, I have to take care of myself.

Hope: You don’t have to protect your heart from me, thomas. I didn’t get into this to hurt you. Or– or to feed my ego, or whatever other lies that steffy has been telling you. Thomas, I am just trying to think about us. About the kids. About our future. And I–

[ Sobs ] I haven’t always done that in the past, and that has caused a lot of pain, and I am just trying not to make that same mistake again. That is all.

Thomas: I have loved you. Wanted you. I would’ve loved you for the rest of my life and given you everything. But it’s too painful, hope. The back and forth is too painful. I still love you. I love you so much. But I can’t do it anymore. And that’s why I’m leaving today. Life, diabetes, there’s no slowing down.

Brooke: Your whole take on hope and thomas? It’s wrong, in this scenario that you’ve created in your head about how hope is a tramp and how she chews up men and spits ’em out, just like her mother.

Steffy: Where’s the lie?

[ Brooke sighs ]

Brooke: Hope’s reluctance to marry thomas doesn’t mean she doesn’t love him. But you know what? That’s not even the issue.

Steffy: Then what is it?

Brooke: How about all the things that thomas did to hope in the past? How about that?

Ridge: Wait, don’t do that. He’s not that man anymore.

Steffy: Even hope claims to believe that.

Brooke: Yes, she does believe it. She doesn’t lie. And she’s a kind person, and she doesn’t toy with people’s emotions.

Steffy: Okay. Yeah, I get it. You just think she’s perfect. But the irony in all this? You think that hope is too good for thomas? It’s actually the other way around. Thomas is too good for hope. I really hope I got through to him, and he’ll end it with her today.

Hope: Leaving? Today? But thomas, you can’T. What about douglas? We’re a family.

Thomas: Yeah. Douglas, we’ve– we’ve led him down a path, and he– [ Sighs ] He’s happy. He wants his parents to be married, but that’s not gonna happen. And so I have to find some way to break his fall.

Hope: Thomas, we can work through this together. What about hope for the future?

Thomas: I can’t work with you any longer, hope.

Hope: What?

Thomas: Like I said, I’m leaving. I think– I think I’m going to paris.

[ Hope scoffs ]

Hope: Paris? Uh… okay, um… well, if you– if you need to take some time and take a break, uh, you can go to paris. You can work at international. You can email me your sketches, thomas. You can’t just walk away. I know how much you love hope for the future.

Thomas: That’s not how this works, hope. I can’t be around you any longer. I can’t work for you. I can’t be near you. It hurts too much. I have to leave. You know, hopefully, maybe, there’s someone out there who can love me and actually love me as much as I love them.

[ Hope chuckles ]

Hope: Do you hear yourself talking right now? ‘Cause this is not you talking, thomas. I mean, someone else? You just proposed to me.

Thomas: And you turned me down, hope! Twice.

Hope: Because I still need time.

[ Thomas sighs ]

Thomas: You’re out of time, hope.

Hope: I thought we were a team.

Thomas: Not anymore. Steffy was right.

Hope: My god! I don’t wanna hear her name anymore! Thomas, how do you not get that she is the one behind all this?

Thomas: Steffy is not some puppet master controlling me. She pointed out something that is true. I need to be a man, have dignity and self-respect. The type of man that his son can follow and not be humiliated all the time.

Hope: I would never try to do that to you.

Thomas: I know. I know it’s not in your nature. I don’t– I don’t think you’re doing it on purpose. I think it’s– it’s just how it happens. I don’t know the reason for it. Maybe– maybe we just have too much to overcome. It’s just a losing battle. I don’t know what the reason is, but… I have to go, hope. And I want douglas with me.

Hope: Douglas? No. Thomas, you can’T. You can’t do that. I love you. You can’t just leave like this.

Thomas: You know… the most painful part of this whole thing has been… I love you. And I knew that you loved me the whole time. But you wouldn’t say it. And the first time that you actually told me you loved me is when you were rejecting me. Goodbye.

Hope: No. No, thomas, you can’t leave like this. Please. Please. Please. Look at me. Look at me, look at me. Hey, don’t do this to us. Please don’t to this to us.

Thomas: I love you, hope. I will always love you.

Hope: No. Thomas!
