Hope: So, uh… you heard?

Liam: About thomas leaving town? Yeah.

Hope: So what, did you come to celebrate? Say I told you so?

Finn: Gotta be a rough time for hope. Not only did your brother leave town, but he took douglas with him.

Steffy: It’s what douglas wanted, to be with his dad. It was his choice.

Finn: But even so, we know how much hope loves douglas. It must’ve been a real blow for her.

Steffy: Okay, babe, I know we may not see eye to eye on this, but hope is not a victim here. She’s another logan, who’s caused countless heartache in my family.

Luna: Oh, my god! What happened? What– what am I doing here?

Zende: That’s what I asked myself when you surprised me here last night.

Rj: Hey, told you she’d be in here hard at work, of course. Hi.

Luna: Hi.

Zende: Hey, luna. So, uh, have you heard the latest?

Luna: About?

Zende: Thomas.

Rj: He, uh, left on a plane to paris last night.

Luna: Oh, like a last minute business trip?

Rj: So, apparently, thomas proposed to hope. Again. And, um, she still couldn’t accept, and that was the final straw for thomas, so he just told her he was going away. And then he decided to take douglas with him.

Zende: And off they went.

Luna: Is hope okay with all of this?

Rj: Uh, no. No, she’s not okay with any of it. But, I mean, you can’t blame her. I mean, she just wasn’t ready to marry the guy, and… anyway, how this affects you is that it does change things around here. Um, especially where my sister’s line’s concerned.

Zende: Thomas has bowed out completely. He will no longer be working on hope for the future.

Luna: This is crazy. What does this mean for the line, then?

Rj: It means that we all have to step up, in thomas’s absence, for hope.

Hope: All right, go ahead. Do your little victory dance.

Liam: I didn’t come here to gloat.

Hope: Oh. Well, then, a lecture? I mean, it’s only fair that you have your shot, too. I mean, I have been read the riot act by steffy.

Finn: Do you really need to make this about the forresters versus the logans?

Steffy: You haven’t lived it the way my family and I have. I mean, the logans, they would relentlessly try to tear my family apart, and now hope is following in brooke’s footsteps.

Finn: You don’t think you’re exaggerating just a little bit?

Steffy: No, I do not. Not after everything hope has done to thomas. I mean, she’s been laser focused on him. She had him designing for her line. And she knew that he was crazy about her, that he was in love with her, but she didn’t care. She led him on. She played with his emotions. I mean, hope is not the innocent girl she once was. Themselves to yo hate this


Luna: God, I really hate this for hope.

Rj: Yeah, we all do.

Luna: I mean, there’s no way that they could just somehow work it out.

Rj: Well, hope wanted to. I mean, she still loves him. She just wasn’t ready to get married to him, but apparently it was all or nothing for thomas.

Zende: If hope couldn’t commit, thomas wasn’t gonna hang around hoping that she might change her mind one day.

Luna: Yeah, I mean, I guess I can see his point.

Zende: Yeah, me too. It’s hard when you care about someone, but they can’t give themselves to you in the way that you’d like them to.

Rj: Well, I’m sure hope had her reasons. I mean, I’m sure they were very good ones.

Zende: They just weren’t good enough for thomas.

Luna: Well, hey, I’m sorry for the way things ended, but I don’t know, maybe with a little time and distance?

Zende: Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Luna: I’m being a hopeless romantic, aren’t I?

Rj: No, there’s nothing wrong with that. But I do think, though, for thomas and hope, they’re– they’re done.

Luna: Okay, well, what about douglas? I mean, is he gonna stay with thomas indefinitely or is he gonna come back and stay with hope?

Zende: I think he wants to be with his dad.

Rj: Anyway, it’s all the more reason that we need to get behind hope and support her right now.

Liam: You really think, uh, that’s why I’m here, that’s why I came? Just to rub it in?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Well, steffy’s had her turn, so it’s only fair. Go ahead. Let’s hear it.

Liam: We may not be married anymore, but I don’t particularly get off on watching you hurt, either.

Hope: Well, it’s a little late for that.

Liam: Yeah, well, that’s on thomas and his, uh, expectations. Unrealistic ones, as it turns out.

Hope: Yeah, I just, um, wasn’t ready to accept a proposal just yet.

Liam: And he should’ve understood that. You’ve literally done nothing to feel guilty about here.

Hope: I did hurt him, liam. And now he wants nothing to do with me, and he has taken douglas with him.

Liam: Yeah, that, um, that part had to hurt.

Hope: You know how much I love douglas. I’ve been his mother since he was little, and even though i am not his birth mother, he is my son in all of the ways that count. And it certainly wasn’t the goodbye that I wanted.

Liam: Yeah, because his father whisked him away, basically in the middle of the night.

Hope: I don’t think thomas would’ve done that if it weren’t for steffy. I mean, she is behind all of this.

Liam: Why– how– why do you think that?

Hope: Liam, she told me to my face. She claims she’s just looking out for her brother, but really, we know the truth. Just like you. She has, um, never really wanted thomas and me together. And now she has made certain that that will never happen ever again.

Liam: You– you think this is all steffy’s doing?

Hope: No, not all of it. I did break thomas’ heart. I did. But steffy has certainly made the situation worse.

Steffy: Thomas used to be obsessed with hope, but he turned his life around. I mean, he completely redefined himself, his life. Like, he’s a– he’s a good person. He’s a wonderful father, an exceptional designer. I mean, the only thing he really wanted was hope. He wanted hope to love him. And what does she do? She leaves him heartbroken.

Finn: It sounds like hope’s heartbroken, too.

Steffy: She brought this on herself. She ruined things with liam. She destroyed things with– with thomas. You shouldn’t feel sorry for her. No one should. You know, whatever hope wants or whatever I think it’ll bring us c people ready to step up. I’ve never seen two people

Zende: Thomas totally got hope’s vision. I’ve never seen two people more in sync, professionally speaking. The good news is, hope has a supportive team in place. People ready to step up.

Rj: Yeah, like zende and me. And you know, I know we’ve had our issues, but, uh, I think this is gonna be good for us. I think it’ll bring us closer together.

Zende: That’s a nice thought, cuz.

Luna: And look, I’ll pitch in, too. You know, whatever hope wants or whatever she needs.

Rj: Yeah, that’d be great. I’m sure she’d love that and zende would appreciate it, too.

Zende: Come again.

Rj: Well, I mean, you haven’t really gotten a chance to work with luna and see how professional and talented she is.

Liam: I was, uh, hoping it wouldn’t get to this point between you and steffy again.

Hope: Well, it wouldn’t have if steffy didn’t go on the offensive for her brother.

Liam: Yeah, why– why is that surprising? Steffy’s always been hyper protective of thomas.

Hope: I’m so tired of hearing that get thrown around as if it’s some sort of excuse, like it justifies her behavior. And, liam, you should’ve heard the things that she was saying to me. It was like it didn’t even cross her mind that she was destroying a family. It didn’t matter to her. As long as I was out of thomas’ life, if douglas is collateral damage, well then so be it.

Liam: Oh, well, come on. I mean, I– I– I know that you’re upset.

Hope: Oh no, I– I am upset, liam. I am. The breakup with thomas was hard enough, but for steffy to play chess with my family? To involve douglas? That… that is a step too far. Liam, he was heartbroken. He was saying things like, “why aren’t daddy and I enough?” Like, do you not love us enough?

Liam: Oh.

Hope: Yeah.

Liam: I’m sorry.

Hope: I am, I’m sorry too. I just– I would’ve given anything to have spared douglas that.

Liam: Just give him time. He loves you.

Hope: I love him too. Oh, I just wish thomas had taken some time to have, you know, thought about everything a little more before he left. But, you know, steffy just had to stir things up and destroy what we had. Look, liam, I know that you don’t want to believe it and you don’t think it’s true, probably, but… steffy is responsible for a lot of this. Thomas and douglas, they would still be here if steffy hadn’t gotten involved.

Finn: Look, I know that you’ve been going through a lot lately, but don’t you think you’re being a little harsh?

Steffy: Why? Because hope’s some sweet, innocent chick? She hasn’t done anything bad in her life? No, things turned for her the moment she put my brother through hell.

Finn: Babe, just listen, okay? I know that you’re hurting for thomas, but let’s not–

Steffy: What are we talking about? She manipulated him. That’s extremely cruel. She played with his emotions. Like, I don’t know if she was doing it to get back at me or my family, like… I– I wouldn’t put it past her. But, you know, kids were involved, like douglas. Douglas had his hopes up and so did thomas. He thought they were gonna be a family, but she wasn’t gonna commit. No, she was just leading him on.

Finn: Look, I understand that your relationship with hope has been long and complicated and often unpleasant. I’m just saying that I don’t think you can put all of the blame on hope. If you’re one of the millions of people with diabetes Here in quite a short

Zende: I already know how amazing luna is. Everyone at forrester does. She’s made a name for herself here in quite a short period of time. So, it would be my pleasure working more closely with luna.

Hope: I realize that if I had just accepted thomas’ proposal, that things would be very different right now. Thomas knew where my head was at. We were on the same page. Until steffy got in her brother’s head and just told him I was using him. Told him that I was just another trashy logan and refused to see what was actually there between me and her brother. How much I loved him. Which, I– I know you don’t want to hear that.

Liam: Sure don’T.

Hope: It’s true, liam. I do love thomas. I mean, would we have gotten married? I don’t know. I don’t have a crystal ball, but we never really had a fair chance to find out. No, steffy just did everything in her power to undermine me, to her brother, to pollute his opinion of me, to make it forrester versus logan all over again, so it’s been real fun in this workplace recently. I’m sorry. This was, uh, quite a bit of an overshare.

Liam: It’s all right. You’re going through a lot. If you, uh, if need a little more help with beth going forward, I’ll be around. I’m not gonna lie, uh… and I’m not going to pretend I’m not relieved that thomas is out of your and our daughter’s life. And I– you know what? I’m gonna go out on a limb and I’m going to say that, uh, I think you’ll find this is a good thing in the end. I really do. I think, you know, and who knows, maybe, um, there’s someone else out there, another man comes into your life who’s, uh, well, worth saying yes to.

Finn: You getting all wound up over this, it’s just– it’s not good for you. Okay, babe? And putting all this on hope, I mean, maybe just– maybe try feeling for her a little bit.

Steffy: Feel for her? Finn, come on.

Finn: I mean, hope, she’s had her own challenges too. I mean, liam dumps her and she’s just trying to find her way and figure her life out.

Steffy: She wasn’t dumped by liam. She chased after thomas in rome. She kissed thomas.

Finn: Okay, yes, but all I’m saying is just maybe try to have a little compassion, okay? So this doesn’t escalate and spiral out of control.

Steffy: Well, hope did say because I was interfering in their relationship that, uh, I’m gonna regret it.

Finn: Did hope threaten you?

Steffy: Yeah, I’m not– I’m not worried about that. But I don’t like you defending her.

Finn: I’m not defending her. Okay, you are my wife, okay? You come first, you always will. I’m just saying she is obviously lost, okay? And part of me feels for her now in that way.

Steffy: Okay, I mean, like, that I get. Like, you’re always trying to find the best in someone and that’s– that’s really sweet and I love that about you. So, let’s not let hope or thomas or sheila’s death get in between us, okay?

Finn: No.

Steffy: What’s important is our love for each other and our family. That’s what matters, okay? Always.
