[ Relaxing music ]

Carter: Katie’s handling the italian media.

Ridge: Look at you putting together an advanced team. Good for you, carter.

Carter: Thank you. All from international. Steffy wants them handling all the logistics in rome.

Ridge: All right, I gotta ask a question. Can anyone think of a more perfect place than rome in spring?

Eric: No. It’s a beautiful place. You’re right. But look, hope and thomas have been working really well together, but this is gonna be an intense experience for them. Is there any reason for us to worry about them working together?

Brooke: Steffy should have kept her concerns to herself.

Taylor: Steffy was just defending her brother.

Brooke: No. Steffy was accusing hope of having feelings for thomas, and she was getting liam to not trust his wife’s commitment. Come on, taylor, please. As my friend, just step up and help me. Go to your daughter, talk to her, and don’t allow her to do anything that’s gonna come between hope and liam.

Deacon: We’ve got some fantastic new chardonnays in the wine list. I’m gonna send victoria over now. Okay, great. Victoria, do me a favor, bring the new wine and serve it at table three, okay?

Victoria: Yes, deacon.

Hope: Ahem!

Deacon: Oh, look at this. It’s my favorite customer.

Hope: It is… busy today. Do you, um, have a table for me?

Deacon: You have a res? Uh, of course, I do. Best seat in the house. Bar side, up front with your old man.

Hope: Sounds great.

Deacon: So, what are you in the mood for?

Hope: Mm. Not really sure. I just, uh, needed to see a friendly face.

Deacon: Uh-oh. What’s going on, hope? Oh, god. Let me guess. This has to do with thomas, doesn’t it?

Hope: Ugh! Is it okay if we don’t talk about thomas?

Deacon: Honey, if he’s causing problems or– or if he’s done something, you can talk to me.

Hope: Dad, it’s not what you think, okay? It’s not what anyone thinks. I mean, everyone is so worried about thomas and me when there’s no reason to be, all right? And I’m– I’m tired of people not believing me, okay? I have the situation under control.

Deacon: What situation? Hope, please talk to me.

Eric: Thomas and hope have been working really well together, but an event like this can be very challenging.

Carter: They’re ready for it.

Eric: Any concerns, ridge?

Ridge: No, I think their work speaks for itself.

Eric: Well, it’s all about collaboration and teamwork, so.

Carter: It really is. And I’m– I’m so impressed with hope. Allowing thomas to rejoin the line. She knew what they could accomplish if she gave him a chance.

Ridge: So obviously, thomas’s past didn’t turn out to be the problem everybody thought it was gonna be.

Taylor: You know, steffy made it clear to liam and hope that she wasn’t trying to cause any trouble at all. She was just defending her brother.

Brooke: But you could imagine how liam reacted.

Taylor: Yes. Yes. Yes, I can. And what I would hope is that it would prompt a conversation between liam and hope because if your daughter is having feelings for my son–

Brooke: Well, hope doesn’t have feelings for thomas, so you don’t have to worry about that.

Taylor: Okay. Well, normally I– I probably wouldn’t worry about that, but I don’t know. You, um, you didn’t listen to me when I was saying the same things about thomas.

Brooke: Well, I couldn’t just forget about his past.

Taylor: Okay. Well, I guess I can’t forget that hope has logan blood in her.

[ Brooke scoffing ] When you have chronic kidney disease.

Ridge: All right. Carter, what else?

Carter: Uh, actually I wanna run this by you. I reached out to our associates in milano. Thomas and hope, they’re very excited about doing press, so they wanna set up some social engagements.

Eric: The more exposure, the better.

Ridge: Yeah. Okay. Uh, but they need to focus on what they’re doing, right? Let’s not have them run around having their picture taken.

Eric: Eh, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? I mean, every time you and brooke went over there, you were front page news. Is– is brooke going with you?

Ridge: Is brooke go– why?

Eric: Well, hope for the future is her daughter’s line. Shouldn’t she go?

Ridge: You know what, dad? You’re not as subtle as you think you are. Thomas is lead designer, so should taylor go as well? Or what do you think?

Carter: I love this. I like this a lot. I like when we veer from the meeting and we explore your love life.

Ridge: My love life?

Carter: Yeah.

Ridge: There’s no love life. Those two women, they’ve sworn off of me for whatever reason.

[ Carter laughing ]

Hope: I’m telling you, dad, there’s nothing wrong. I mean, that is the problem. But I’m tired of everybody worrying about me constantly.

Deacon: Should I be worried? I– I mean, am I falling down at the job here?

Hope: No.

Deacon: Hope, listen, you can come to me anytime you want. You know that, right? If you wanna talk. Is that what this is about?

Hope: No, I don’t wanna talk about this, okay? Liam has already been concerned about thomas and me working together for a while now.

Deacon: Can’t say I blame the guy.

Hope: Except there’s no reason to be anymore, dad. I mean, it’s like I keep trying to reassure him and everybody else that thomas is fine now and no matter how hard I try, no one believes me.

Deacon: Define fine.

Hope: He’s better.

Deacon: Better– better than how crazy he was five minutes ago, better? I mean, it’s a pretty low bar, hope.

Hope: He is a professional. He has been a gentleman. He’s a better father to douglas now and let’s not forget, he is a very, very valuable part of my team.

Deacon: Okay. All right.

Hope: Okay.

Deacon: Great. I– I’m honestly happy to hear that, you know? I mean, look, I trust you not to put yourself in a tough situation, all right? You– you get your best qualities from your mother, but you get your street smarts from me, all right? You know your own feelings. I mean, look, if thomas isn’t setting off alarm bells, you know, you’re not getting that weird twisty feeling in your gut, I’m gonna say that you probably don’t have to stress about it. I mean, you know, you’re closer than anyone. Seeing him with new eyes, I guess. I’ll be right back.

Brooke: Hope has logan blood in her? What is that supposed to mean?

Taylor: Let’s see if I can clarify it. Honestly, it just means that hope has logan blood in her.

Brooke: Oh, my god.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Seriously?

Taylor: Seriously.

Brooke: Seriously, you’re gonna go there?

Taylor: Come on, brooke. I’m not– I’m not trying to fight or anything. No. But I will always defend my family and thomas has changed. He’s doing so well. You have nothing to worry about when it comes to him working with hope, unless…

Brooke: Unless what?

Taylor: Well, unless hope is the one having inappropriate feelings for my son.

Brooke: Oh, my god. I– I thought we were friends.

Taylor: Well, friends can disagree.

Brooke: Respectfully.

Taylor: Right.

Brooke: Right.

Taylor: See, I have been very respectful about the way that you feel about my son. I don’t understand why– why is it wrong for me to share my feelings with you?

Brooke: It’s not the same thing, taylor.

Taylor: Oh, okay. Okay.

Brooke: You know what? You know what? Our pact meant a lot to me and I don’t want anything to happen to our friendship here, so I’m gonna do the right thing and I’m gonna take myself out before I say something that I’m gonna regret.

Taylor: Well, it’s too late for that.

[ Door closes ] (Wheezing)

Deacon: Don’t wanna take you away

Hope: I knew I came to the right place.

Deacon: Any time, kiddo.

Hope: Well, I, uh, don’t wanna take you away from your customers.

Deacon: Are you kidding me? Look, if my daughter wants to come in and talk to me, there’s nothing more important.

Hope: Well, I actually didn’t, uh, just come for pep talk or delicious food. I– I do have some news.

Deacon: Give.

Hope: My big press event.

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Hope: It’s happening in rome.

Deacon: Oh, you’ve gotta be kidding me. That is so fantastic.

Hope: I know.

Deacon: It’s fantastic. You know how much I love italy.

Hope: Absolutely. And– and it is just so exciting to me. The planning and the preparation. I mean, the whole office is buzzing.

Deacon: I would say that you’re buzzing.

Hope: Yeah. Well, you know, I’ve done business overseas in the past, but something about this time, it just feels different.

Deacon: Yeah. You’re launching a new collection. I mean, you gotta do it up big. I know you’re gonna kill it.

Hope: Thanks, dad.

Deacon: I just want you to know, I’m so proud of everything that you’re doing, all your accomplishments. More than anything, I’m just proud of who you are. Can’t believe you came from me.

Hope: Um, what was that you were saying a little bit ago about, uh, street smarts?

Deacon: Just wish that I’d been around to watch you grow up, you know, watch you grow into this incredible person.

Hope: Yeah. Hey, you’re here now.

Deacon: Damn straight. I’m not going anywhere. I know I messed up a lot in the past, but that part of my life is finished. The best thing that I have ever done with a little help from brooke is make a remarkable woman like you.

Ridge: That’s good. Just a couple of things you need to check on.

Charlie: Yeah. I’ll make sure we photograph all the locked items. And, you know, uh, by the by, I just want you to know I have this phrase book almost totally memorized. Just, you know, in case you need me at the last, uh, at the last, uh… momento.

Ridge: No, that’s– that’s great. If we have any frogs that need lipstick, we’ll give you a call.

Charlie: Oh, sure. Well, yeah. Yeah. Well, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, fosse, uh, uh, possibilimente, huh?

Ridge: Sure.

Charlie: Yeah.

Ridge: Okay.

Charlie: Are you okay? Well, uh, ciao, ciao.

Ridge: Ciao.

Charlie: Ciao [Indistinct].

Ridge: Okay. No, it’s good. I’ll look at the thing. All right. Almost there.

Eric: All right. Good. It’s good we have a moment alone together.

Ridge: What’s up?

Eric: Look… you know how much I love having family around. I love that you’re staying at the house.

Ridge: You’re throwing me out right now, aren’t you?

Eric: I am not throwing you out right now.

Ridge: You are politely asking me to get out.

Eric: No, there’s not a polite way to ask somebody to get out and that’s not what I’m doing. You can stay as long as you want. I’m just surprised that you feel you still need to and that the situation hasn’t resolved itself by now.

Ridge: Dad…

Eric: Look, you and brooke are capable of making your own decision by yourselves.

Ridge: She’s made her decision.

Eric: Yeah. And you know where I stand on that. You and brooke belong together. You always have and you always will.

Brooke: Oh, glad you’re both here. I need to confirm some details for the preview.

Eric: Uh-huh.

Brooke: If I’m not interrupting.

Eric: No, you’re not. In fact, it’s perfect timing. I have some things I have to do and I’m sure the two of you can sort things out on your own. You’re perfectly capable.

[ Ridge laughing ]

Brooke: Uh, okay. What is that supposed to mean?

Ridge: Oh, I don’t know. I’m not sure. It’s dad. He, um, you know how he feels about us.

Deacon: Hey, forget something?

Taylor: Um, yeah. Ironically, I– I did. Um, I forgot that brooke logan is brooke logan. I brought in ensure max protein with 30g of protein.

Brooke: Eric’s always been very supportive, very encouraging.

Ridge: Mm-hmm. Yeah. But he did give me a bit of a kick in the pants today, which I wasn’t expecting. He, um, he doesn’t wanna be my landlord anymore.

Brooke: Well, that’s not true. He misses you when you’re not around.

Ridge: Maybe. But, uh, I think he’d rather have me live somewhere else.

Brooke: Oh, so he thinks that we should work things out.

Ridge: Mm-hmm. He’s not subtle about it.

Brooke: No.

Ridge: You know him. He’s got an opinion, it’ll just– it– it’ll come out. He’ll tell everybody. His kids, grandkids. He’s always been your champion.

Brooke: Yeah, he’s always had my back.

Ridge: And why wouldn’t he? Look at you. You’re so beautiful, talented, great mom.

Brooke: Okay. Keep going. I could use all the compliments I could get today.

Ridge: You’re kind, you’re caring. You– you’re great.

Brooke: I’m kidding.

Ridge: Okay. You’re fun at a party. Even more fun after the party.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Okay.

Ridge: I miss you.

Brooke: I miss you.

Deacon: Do I need to remind you that you and brooke are supposed to be friends now?

Taylor: Yes, I know. Do you think maybe you could remind brooke that we are?

Deacon: Okay. Maybe I was getting mixed signals here, but it seemed to me like you were trying to get me and brooke together so that you’d have a clear path to ridge.

Taylor: No. That– that is not what I was doing. No, that– that’s not what I was doing. I– I was just– I was trying to do what was best for everyone at that point. I– you know, deacon, you’ve loved brooke for a long time. You– you have a child together. Your feelings for her have never changed.

Deacon: Pretty sure she doesn’t have the same ones.

Taylor: Well, but I– I was just saying, hey, give it a chance. You never know. You gotta go for it. And how great would it be if hope had her family together?

Deacon: Taylor, come on. Knock it off. You didn’t come all the way down here to tell me that hope wants to see her parents reunited. What’s going on with you? Just talk to me.

Taylor: Something’s going on. I– I– I’m not trusting brooke. I’m not trusting our pact. I’m not trusting anything right now. We had some words.

Deacon: Okay. Look, if the– the gloves are coming off, maybe I wanna take cover.

Taylor: But deacon, I– I wasn’t, and I’m not trying to manipulate brooke or stab her in the back. I just really believe that– well, you are a catch, you know. You’re– you’re handsome and you’re successful and charming and–

Deacon: All right. I– I– I– stop, dr. Freud. You’re gonna overinflate my ego. It doesn’t need any help.

Taylor: No, I’m serious, deacon. I just wish you could see what I see.

Deacon: Well, you really are good at what you do, aren’t you? ‘Cause you have got a knack for making people feel good about themselves.

Taylor: Yes. Well, that is why I get paid the big bucks.

Deacon: And because you’re a world renowned psychiatrist.

Taylor: That’s right. And don’t you forget it.

Deacon: How could I?

Taylor: Deacon, after today, I… oh, I don’t know. I, um… I think you might be able to help.

Deacon: Okay.

Taylor: You might just be the key, deacon.

Deacon: Me?

Taylor: To ending this toxic, destructive cycle that’s been going on for so long. You need to call brooke. You need to do it, deacon. Do it now.

[ Dramatic music ]

Hope: I can’t believe that you would tell liam that I have feelings for thomas. I mean, your perception of my working relationship with your brother is–

Steffy: That’s the thing. Thomas has his head on straight. He isn’t the problem.

Hope: OH. And I am?

Steffy: Well, it isn’t thomas, so that’s why I felt it was a need to protect him. All the progress he’s made.

Hope: Thomas doesn’t need protection, especially not from me. Can you just do me a favor and stay out of my business?

Ridge: So this is for me?

Taylor: Yes, it is. Burrata and pesto. Your favorite.

Ridge: That is my favorite. Why don’t you stay, eat it with me?

Taylor: Uh, well, I already ate.

Ridge: Oh, okay. So, I gotta do everything on my own. Fantastic.

Taylor: Yes. You have to do everything on your own. I just came from ii giardino with brooke.

Ridge: I see. So, you can eat with her, but you can’t eat with me.

Taylor: Well, I mean, I could, as long as it’s not a date.

Ridge: A date?

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: What is a date? Really, I’ve forgotten. I’ve been in exile for so long.

Taylor: Okay. Well, a date is finishing dinner, and then getting lost in eye contact, minds racing, hearts pounding and then you… pay for dinner. That’s a date.

Ridge: Okay.

Steffy: I was never trying to sabotage your relationship.

Hope: Oh, well, it sure feels that way.

Steffy: Someone had to stick up for my brother.

Hope: Oh, okay. By throwing me under the bus in the process.

Steffy: That was never my intention, hope.

Hope: Of course, it was, steffy. That’s exactly what you were doing by going to liam. You knew that he would be upset, but you’re wrong, okay. You’re dead wrong. I am fully committed to my husband.

Steffy: Okay. Fine. Then, there shouldn’t be a problem then, right? Okay.

Ridge: So that almost kiss was the closest I’ve got to getting any action since you guys put me in the timeout.

Taylor: Oh, stop. Stop. There are– there are tons of women out there for you.

Ridge: Why are you trying to hand me off to another woman?

Taylor: I don’t think I would ever do that.

Ridge: Because it sounds like you’re done with me.

Taylor: I am. That doesn’t mean that I– I don’t think about you and all the wonderful times we shared.

Brooke: Hi, honey. I got your text.

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: What happened? You seem upset.

Hope: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Upset doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface, so.

Brooke: What’s going on?

Hope: It was just steffy. It’s steffy. She’s up to her old tricks again.

Brooke: What did she do?

Hope: Oh, you know, just interfering in my marriage.

Your heart

is the beat of life.

Ridge: You know, I’ve got a real spring in my steps and I think it’s because of you. Thank you.

Taylor: Really? Because of the pizza I brought you?

Ridge: Yeah. Yeah. Pizza. And, uh, what you said earlier.

Taylor: What did I say earlier?

Ridge: That you think about me sometimes.

Taylor: I think about you all the time. I mean, you know, I– I see you and our kids every day. I’m so proud of steffy and thomas. I’m– I’m proud of us too. You know, as– as their parents.

Ridge: Yeah, me too. I’m– I’m proud of us.

Taylor: We’re doing good. Like, we’re all doing so good. I just wish–

Ridge: You wish what?

Taylor: No, I– I don’t think I wanna–

Ridge: No, you started, so you’ll finish. What is it?

Taylor: No, no. It– just all this talk about me and brooke and our– and our friendship.

Ridge: Did something happen or?

Taylor: We had a disagreement and, uh, it just kinda opened my eyes a little. I’m not sure if brooke has been honest and transparent with me when it comes to you. You know, we have this pact. Has she broken that? Has she done anything to go against it? ‘Cause, you know, you– you’ve had dinners, you’ve– you’ve hung out. Is there anything that I should know about?

Ridge: Doc, I–

Taylor: Okay. You don’t need to say anything. I– I get it. I was right.

Ridge: No, no.

Taylor: It’s okay. No, it’s– I just wish–

Charlie: Hiya, boss.

Ridge: Oh.

Charlie: I, uh… oh, dr. Hayes. I’m sorry. I– I didn’t know you two were having this session.

Taylor: We’re not having a session.

Ridge: What do you need, charlie?

Charlie: Well, I heard we were going to rome, and so I got my italian phrase book and– and I got my passport renewed. And– and– and I, uh, look, I– I– I know it’s mostly for the– the hope for the future crew, but… you know, you’ve seen

the godfather. I mean, you might need me.

Ridge: I think we’ll be okay. I– I appreciate you offering, but we could really use you here. Inventory.

Charlie: Right. Okay. I’m– yeah, I’m on it.

Ridge: Okay.

Charlie: Oh, oh, oh. Uh, dr. Hayes, listen, I’ve been having these dreams.

Taylor: What are they about, charlie?

Ridge: Oh, no. Absolutely not. It’s all we have time for today. Thank you. I’ll see you soon.

Charlie: Good.

[ Speaking italian poorly ]

Steffy: Your frog wears lipstick?

Charlie: What? Is that what I said? But wait, I gotta– I gotta fix it. I just–

Steffy: Okay.

Taylor: Hi, baby.

Ridge: Why would you–

Taylor: I was just– I– how is our– how is our favorite co-ceo?

Steffy: I am not great.

Ridge: Come on.

Steffy: I– I don’t– I really don’t wanna get into it. I really don’T.

Taylor: You always feel better when you talk to us.

Steffy: Hope’s upset.

Ridge: She’s upset. Why?

Steffy: You know how thomas always gets accused of being infatuated with hope? What if I told you it was the other way round? I think hope has feelings for thomas.

Brooke: I really can’t believe this. I mean, what would drive steffy to go to liam?

Hope: Mm. I don’t know. She has some nerve, though, insinuating herself into my marriage like this. I mean– actually no, no. Wait. This isn’t the first time, right? So, I shouldn’t be surprised. It’s just what she does.

Brooke: Just to be clear, steffy is mistaken.

Hope: Oh, yes. Obviously. Yes.

Brooke: Okay. Okay. I’m just trying to get things straight here. I mean, this really is very surprising.

Hope: Well, yeah. I mean, it would be– it would be one thing if she just came to me, right? And asked me these questions and brought up these concerns, but it’s another thing to go behind my back and gossip to my husband and plant seeds of doubt.

Brooke: I’m sure liam was upset.

Hope: I mean, he was blindsided. I mean, how could he not be hearing that his wife has feelings for another man, let alone thomas, after all the things that he’s done? I mean, it’s– it is ridiculous, but, um, you know, liam, I think he– he realizes that now, and– and he– he understands, but it took some persuading.

Brooke: So what do you think could have prompted steffy?

Hope: Oh, to attack me like this? Yeah. I, uh, asked her point blank, and she said that it was one particular incident in this office. Yeah. Except that’s not at all how it happened. Thomas and I were excited. The numbers were good. We got caught up in a celebratory moment, taking pride in our work. But, you know steffy. Suddenly, it becomes intimate. And thomas and I are caressing each other’s hands, and I’m gazing into his eyes and it’s just…

[ Laughing ] Just– just gimme a break.

Brooke: Uh, okay. Look, please don’t take this the wrong way, but I really have to ask again. Is there any validity to this?

Hope: Mom!

Brooke: I need you to be honest with yourself and with me. Is steffy right? Have you developed feelings for thomas? Martial arts is my passion.

Taylor: I’m glad you stood up for your brother.

Steffy: Yeah, I had to. Liam kept going on and on about not being able to trust thomas when hope is the one that should be called into question.

Taylor: Yeah. Well, I mean, I understand where you’re coming from. I’m– I’m sick and tired of hearing the same messages about thomas too. That– that he’s reckless and unhinged.

Steffy: Liam has some serious reservations about hope and thomas working together and we all kind of dismissed him because we thought thomas changed.

Ridge: He has changed.

Steffy: No, you’re right. Absolutely. But maybe liam was right about some vibe between them.

Taylor: Yeah. But he didn’t realize that the vibe was actually coming from hope.

Steffy: But hope likes to say, this is all in my head.

Taylor: Of course. Yeah.

Ridge: Well, whatever it is, it’s getting a little messy.

Steffy: Look, I know hope loves liam and she doesn’t wanna lose him. I’m sure she wasn’t trying to find someone else to be attracted to, let alone liam’s worst nightmare. I was just looking out for him. I’m not trying to make trouble in their marriage.

Taylor: Of course, you’re not. You– you did the right thing. You know, you weren’t trying to be hurtful. We all know that. Whatever happens now is up to hope.

Hope: We’ve already gone over this.

Brooke: You never gave me a clear answer.

Hope: There’s nothing to worry about, okay?

Brooke: Okay, so you can say unequivocally, that you don’t have feelings for thomas.

Hope: I don’T. I– I don’t want anything from thomas more than– than to be co-parents, to be coworkers and– and to be friends. So wrong to admit that I– that I am human?

Brooke: What does that mean?

Hope: It’s– I– I have eyes. Okay, mom. So yes, I can appreciate that thomas happens to be good looking and he’s funny. And yes, we just happen to spend 10 to 14 hours working together in a day. That’s all.

Brooke: And what does that mean? Hope, come on. You’ve gotta be honest here.

Hope: I am. That’s what I’m doing here. I am being honest, okay? I– I– I might have felt a little something.

Brooke: For thomas?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah. But it’s fine, mom. It’s fine. I can handle it, okay? It’s nothing

Brooke: Oh, my god. No. No. It’s not nothing. You have to be upfront.

Hope: I am, okay? And– and– and– that’s normal, right? Isn’t that normal for people to just sometimes have thoughts and desires? And– and this is okay as long as you don’t act on them, right?

Brooke: If you’re having thoughts and desires, that could lead to something else and that would be dangerous.

Hope: But this not– that’s not for me, okay? ‘Cause I– I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t cross the line. I am in control of myself, okay? So, you don’t have to worry about that when it comes to me. What I just had wished was that steffy would’ve kept her big mouth shut because liam has had issues with thomas and me collaborating already and now, I have her gossiping. And it’s just… my relationship means everything to me and I’m not going to let anything or anyone, including myself, destroy that. I love liam. I love him. He’s my husband. He’s my daughter’s father. Liam is the love of my life. When you have chronic kidney disease.

Ridge: Too bad your mom had to go back to the office.

Steffy: I hope I didn’t bring the mood down when I walked in.

Ridge: What? You? Stop it. You are a ray of sunshine. Everyone’s been so happy around here. I just hope that this is not a disruption.

Steffy: Yeah, let’s hope not.

Ridge: Couldn’t come at a worst time.

Steffy: Tell me about it.

Ridge: We got previews. We got all kinds of stuff–

Steffy: Traveling to rome.

Ridge: Of course.

Steffy: Most romantic place in the world. Hope and thomas working even longer hours.

Ridge: And you think everything between them is strictly professional?

Steffy: I– I’m certain that’s the case for thomas.

Ridge: What about her?

Steffy: I wanna believe hope. That she’s not interested in thomas. I’m just not convinced.

Steffy: I’m just trying

to make sense of all of this.

Steffy: So, are you lying?

Are you attracted to thomas?

Liam: Hey, this is liam.

I can’t come to the phone

right now. I’ll call you back

as soon as I can.

Hope: Liam, hey, it’s, um, it’s me. Um, I know that things have been a bit challenging lately, but I just, uh, wanted you to know how much I love you, how much I love our life together. Um, okay. Yeah. I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you. Okay. I will see you at the house later tonight. Bye.

Brooke: Oh, it’s okay. I’m sure dr. Hayes won’t mind.

Taylor: Hello, brooke. Gosh, I didn’t see you on my schedule.

Brooke: Have you spoken to your daughter today?

Taylor: Yes. Yes, I have.

Brooke: Well, it was kinda strange the things that she said to liam, to hope’s husband.

Taylor: Okay. Well, she was just defending her brother. He’s worked very hard to get to where he is right now.

Brooke: Okay. So, that’s all that it was. There’s no other motivation.

Taylor: What other motivation could there be?

Brooke: I don’t know. Steffy knows that it’s a very volatile situation. Thomas and hope working together. She knows that liam doesn’t like it, that he’s very uncomfortable with it.

Taylor: I– I think that steffy was just being a protective little sister. That’s all.

Brooke: Really? Okay. She was pointing fingers and she was getting liam to not trust his wife. It seemed like she was actually trying to tear apart their marriage.

Taylor: Okay. That’s enough. Steffy wouldn’t do that. I don’t know– that– that is just unfair what you’re saying.

Brooke: Doesn’t matter anyway because hope would never cheat on liam.

Taylor: Oh, okay. Oh, no one was saying that she would.

Brooke: We’re friends, right, taylor?

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Are we? Because I know we worked really hard on this friendship. We worked really hard to get where we are and right now, I am asking you to step up as a friend and help me. Go to your daughter, insist that she take back every word that she said to liam because that wasn’t fair. My daughter has a family. A family that she loves very much and I sure as hell, I’m not gonna let your daughter step in between hope and liam.

[ Relaxing music ]

Deacon: Oh, hey, victoria. Uh, don’t forget to tell him about the cherry scones. Look at this. I can’t believe it. Two beautiful, exquisite women in my humble establishment again. To be so lucky.

Brooke: Always the charmer.

Taylor: Yes, he is.

Deacon: Look, I’ve said it before, I just cannot get over the two of you calling a truce after all these years. It’S…

Brooke: Well, it’s more than a truce. It’s like A… it’s a friendship. One that we value and will continue to put first.

Deacon: Much to good old ridge’s dismay, I’m sure.

Brooke: Hm.

Taylor: Brooke and I have

sworn off of ridge.

She might be into trying

an old favorite again.

Could be really great

for both of you.

Eric: So, it’s rome, huh?

Ridge: Uh-huh. Got a few things to figure out, but looks like it’s a go.

Steffy: Hope for the future is already doing so well, but with rome as a backdrop, it’s gonna be chef’s kiss. It’ll be great. Hope for the future, it’s great. You know, with the designs–

Eric: It’s going to be wonderful, you’re right.

Rj: Hey. So, what’s this I hear? Is, uh, hope’s line is actually going to go to rome?

Steffy: Going to the most beautiful place on earth. Yes.

Rj: Well, I mean, I love rome obviously, but…

Ridge: But what?

Rj: If hope and thomas are going together, how’s liam gonna feel about that?

Steffy: Thomas isn’t the

problem. I’m sorry, liam.

I don’t want to hurt you,

but I think your wife has

feelings for thomas.

Liam: Hi.

Hope: Hey, you’re still home.

Liam: Yeah, I’m, um, just answering a few emails before I head in. How was drop off?

Hope: Well, uh, first in line three days in a row.

Liam: That’s a new record. Good.

Hope: Are we… good? Liam, you know I love you more than anything else.

Hope: Okay, I just, um… I want to be sure that we’re on the same page before we go to work.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Thomas and I, we strictly have a professional relationship and I understand that we’ve been working a lot of long hours, but–

Liam: Hope, I know.

Hope: Our focus is on saving the line. Liam… our life, our marriage, our family, it means everything to me and I– I would never want to risk that. So, steffy can say what she wants to say and she saw what she saw, but she’s wrong.

Ridge: That’s a valid point, son, but I do feel that everything is going to be worked out between thomas and hope before we leave for italy.

Rj: You really think that liam’s just gonna be chill with it by then?

Eric: He’s always been supportive of hope before. I don’t see why this would be any different.

Rj: Come on, steffy. You agree with this?

Steffy: Yeah, I do agree. I think it’s an amazing opportunity. Hope for the future was on its way out and then thomas came in and started–

Rj: Yeah, I know, thomas. Thomas to the rescue.

Ridge: Hey, don’t do that. He did come to the rescue. He turned this thing around. He’s talented, just like you, just like you, and I’m glad you’re here. We’re all together again. And I know I said there wasn’t gonna be any family drama, and I– I do think that. I think we’re at the end of it.

Rj: That go for you, too? How’s the whole situation with, you know, you and mom and taylor going?

Deacon: So, that’s how I see initially scaling it. I mean, what do you– what do you guys think? Is it too ambitious?

Brooke: No! No, that’s exciting!

Taylor: Yeah, it really is. It is. It– it’s, um, it’s a roadmap to the future, a very successful future. One that you and– and everyone you know can be proud of.

Deacon: I mean, you know, as a businessman, you have to have goals, right? I don’t wanna get ahead of myself, but I wanna, you know, increase the visibility of the brand and maybe, I don’t know, strategically open up a couple of new restaurants. And I’m going full in on the frozen pizza.

Brooke: Oh.

Deacon: It’s very exciting.

Brooke: That is, that’s very impressive.

Taylor: Yeah, it really is. Especially when you think about how– how you got here. You know, you– you saw something you wanted and you put your heart into it, and then look at this place! It’s a huge success. You’ve really come a long way, deacon, don’t you think, brooke?

Brooke: Yes, of course. Absolutely. And now please welcome ana montoya.

Hope: Steffy misinterpreted what she saw and as your wife, I would hope that you would listen to me and take my word for it instead of your ex-wife’S.

Liam: The last thing I want to believe is that you have feelings for thomas.

Hope: Well, then don’t believe it. Don’t, liam, because it’s not… it’s not true. I swear.

Liam: Yeah. Um, all right. I’m, uh, I’m gonna head to the office because I’m kind of late as it is.

Hope: Um, yeah. I mean, I– I need to get going to forrester as well, so.

Liam: Okay. All right.

Hope: I love you.

Liam: Yeah, me too.

Ridge: Why does it feel like I’m on the hot seat once again?

Rj: Oh, we’re sorry. You know, we really don’t mean to make you feel that way.

Steffy: No, not at all. We just want to know what your intentions are where our mothers are concerned.

Ridge: What my– what my intentions are?

Rj: Yeah. I just wanna know where, you know, things stand between you and my mom.

Steffy: And mine.

Eric: Well, I think the two of them have made their intentions very, very clear.

Ridge: Yes, they have.

Eric: Yes, they have, but it’s also very clear to me that those two are the loves of your life. You share children and grandchildren with them.

Ridge: I know that. I know that, but part of history is the choice that they made. They put their friendship first.

Rj: Their friendship, but that doesn’t mean that mom doesn’t still love you.

Ridge: And that’s nice and I realize that.

Steffy: Well, that must mean you also realize that mom still loves you, too.

Ridge: I am aware of that also. Yes.

Eric: Look, we all admire and respect what the two of them are doing, but I have to say–

Rj: But how much longer before one of them is sharing their life with you?

Taylor: You know what’s really, really cool about this whole thing is that you have become one of L.A.’S most eligible bachelors.

Brooke: Ooh.

Taylor: Yes!

Deacon: Uh, according to who?

Taylor: According to everyone.

Deacon: Ah.

Taylor: Yeah. Just don’t be modest.

Deacon: Deacon sharpe, modest? That’d be a first.

Taylor: You know what I mean.

Deacon: Oh, I do.

Taylor: Glad you do. I’m– I’m sure brooke would agree.

Brooke: Hm? Oh, yes, of course. I mean, deacon knows that I want nothing but the best for him. I gotta go back to work. Sorry, but this was wonderful. Thank you for suggesting it and we’re gonna do it again soon, right? Oh, here, let me give you some–

Taylor: Stop. I got it.

Brooke: Okay. Thanks. Bye.

Taylor: We’ll talk later.

Brooke: Bye.

Deacon: Uh, laying it on kind of thick there, weren’t you?

Taylor: Was I?

Deacon: L.A.’S most eligible bachelor?

Taylor: Well, you are. You really are and it doesn’t hurt to remind brooke.

Steffy: We’re excited too. Rome’s the perfect location for what we have in mind. All right, I’ll keep you posted. Ciao.

[ Door slamming ]

Hope: You just had to do it, didn’t you? You just had to interfere in my marriage. Scout is protected by simparica trio,

Rj: Hey, dad, look at this. Check it out.

Ridge: What am I looking at?

Rj: It’s– it’s a video I posted yesterday and it blew up overnight.

Ridge: It blew up and that’s a good thing?

Rj: Well, yeah! I mean, I– I got a ton of followers from it. Come on, it’s pretty awesome, right?

Ridge: I’m sure it’s awesome.

Rj: Yeah, it’s not as awesome as if I were designing here at forrester, right?

Ridge: Hey, don’t do that. I told you I’d love for you to work here with me. I think it’d be great, but the most important thing is for you to be happy, and if that means blowing things up on the world wide web, then do that. Come here.

Rj: Thanks.

Brooke: Aw. I love walking in and seeing two of my most favorite men in the world.

Ridge: I thought you were gonna be here earlier.

Brooke: Yeah, I, uh, lost track of time. I was catching up with taylor.

Deacon: Laying it on a little thick there, weren’t you?

Taylor: Hm? What do you mean?

Deacon: What do you mean, what do I mean? Come on. It wasn’t that long ago that you were urging me to take a shot with brooke and obviously, you haven’t gotten over that idea.

Taylor: Right. Right. I just– I just happened to think that it was a good opportunity. You know, now that brooke’s sworn off ridge, right? This could be your opportunity, deacon.

Deacon: What if I told you that I didn’t want another chance with brooke?

Taylor: Oh, well, I would say you are a big fat liar ’cause brooke has always been the one for you.

Deacon: Just like ridge has always been the one for you. What– what’s going on with you?

Taylor: No, no, no, no, no, no, we are not– we are not talking about ridge and me. We’re talking about you and brooke.

Deacon: Which has me wondering.

Taylor: What does it have you wondering?

Deacon: It has me wondering if you’re using me so that you can reunite with forrester.

Steffy: So, if you have

any concerns about hope

and thomas, if you have

any suspicions, it’s not

because of thomas.

I think it’s hope.

Steffy: Obviously, liam spoke to you about what I said.

Hope: About your ridiculous suspicions. Yes, he did. I mean, how dare you, steffy? How dare you go out of your way to tell my husband that I have feelings for thomas. I mean, it’s pathetic.

Steffy: Is it, though?

Hope: Yes. What you thought you saw in this office couldn’t have been further from the truth. I wasn’t coming on to thomas. I told you we got caught up in that moment and– and yet, you insist on believing otherwise. It’s almost like you’re trying to undermine my marriage.

Steffy: Of course not. Though I have to wonder… are you?

Hope: How could you even ask me that? You of all people should know how much liam means to me.

Steffy: And you should know how much thomas means to me. So, are you lying? Are you attracted to thomas? If you think you, a child in your care,

Brooke: Oh, I– I realize I keep saying this, but I am so excited to have our wonderful talented son back here in los angeles.

Rj: Oh, mom.

Brooke: Well, it’s true. And when did you grow up and become an adult and carve this amazing career out for yourself? Oh, I love you so much.

Rj: I love you too, mom.

Ridge: See, that’s what it’s all about, right? Us being back together. Everything’s fine now that you’re home. Come here.

Brooke: It’s true.

Taylor: Do I want ridge back?

Deacon: That’s the question.

Taylor: I mean, I will always love ridge. You know, our love story was hijacked all those years ago and I–

Deacon: And that’s something that you still blame brooke for. Look, I get it. You guys have your little gal pal pact and everything’s supposed to be forgotten from the past, but my question to you, taylor, is, can it be? Really? I mean, if ridge is still in both your lives?

Taylor: Look, ridge is always gonna be in both our lives. We– we both have families with him and you are right, ridge has been in brooke’s orbit longer than mine.

Deacon: And now with rj back, I mean, that just reaffirms that brooke and ridge, they’re family.

[ Phone ringing ] Sorry. [Indistinct] Hello.

Guard: Deacon sharpe, please

Deacon: Yeah, you got him. Who’s this?

Guard: I’m with the lundberg

correctional facility.

We have a collect call

for you from inmate

sheila carter. Will you

accept the charges?

Deacon: Yeah, I’m sorry, I’m not going to be able to talk right now. What?

Taylor: I don’t know, that call.

Deacon: What about it?

Taylor: I don’t know. You seem a little flustered. It sounded mysterious.

Deacon: You know–

Taylor: Is that someone that you’re dating?

Deacon: You–

Taylor: Is that someone that you’re dating? Is that–

Deacon: You need to stop and be careful because your– your matchmaking is becoming very obvious. Let’s get back to you now. So, um, what happened to this, this gal pal pact the two of you had? Oh, no, there’s trouble in paradise, isn’t there?

Taylor: You’ve kept how

you feel about thomas from me

because, brooke, I–

I thought that we had a–

a– a real friendship.

Brooke: We do.

Taylor: Is there anything

else I deserve to know?

Anything happen with ridge? I am– I am– I’m not trusting our pact so much right now. Um, long story short, um, she doesn’t– she doesn’t trust thomas. She’s not being honest. So, our pact was about honesty and transparency across the board, especially when it comes to ridge and I… I think I’m just, I’m– I’m trying to do what’s right for everyone. Especially you, deacon.

Deacon: And yourself.

Hope: The answer is no,

liam. I love you.

My commitment is to you.

Our relationship is nothing

but professional.

My heart

is here with you, always.

Hope: This is my life you’re messing with. My marriage, my family. Yes, I care about your brother. I care about thomas. I am so grateful that he’s become a good father to douglas. I am grateful that he’s working on the line, but there is nothing more than that.

Steffy: But if you’re totally honest with yourself–

Hope: Can you just stop for a second, please, and listen to me? Liam knows how much I love him. I told him that he is the only man for me. He’s the only man that I want to spend the rest of my life with. And thomas? I’m not interested in him. I never have been interested in him. I never will be interested in him. Liam and I have been through too much. We have faced our fair share of challenges, and some of those were because of you, by the way.

[ Steffy scoffing ] So, we deserve to be happy. So, could you maybe try to not ruin that for once? Keep your comments to yourself. Stay out of my marriage.

Liam: Just tell me it’s not true.

Hope: Liam. I can’t believe that you heard this from steffy.

Liam: I was visiting kelly. That’s why I was over there and I got off the phone with you and I was frustrated learning that it was going to be yet another late nigs with you know who and I started venting and I shouldn’t have done that. I’m sorry. But, I was so focused on thomas, it never occurred to me that steffy might tell me it’s you who has feelings for him, so I need to know, hope, is that true?

[ Door knocking ]

Rj: Thomas?

Thomas: What’s up?

Rj: You know, from my experience, if someone’s that zoned out, they’re probably thinking about a girl.

Steffy: Babe, what are you doing home? Not that I’m complaining.

Finn: My shift was shortened.

Steffy: Lucky me. I just put the kids down.

Finn: Yeah? Okay, well, um, I’m gonna go give them a kiss and, uh, stay right here. I’ll be right back.

Steffy: Okay.

I’m sorry, liam. I don’t

wanna hurt you, but I think

your wife has feelings

for thomas.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Finn: Hey, sorry I’ve been missing nights lately. It’s just, it’s part of the rotation. It’ll cycle through.

Steffy: Oh, no. I’m not upset about that. I totally get it. You’re dedication to your patients, your work, I understand.

Finn: Something’s bothering you though. What is it?

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: It’s about thomas.

Thomas: So, you got girls on the mind, huh? Who are you thinking about?

Rj: Well, wouldn’t you like to know?

Thomas: I wouldn’t actually. Not at all, uh, but, you know, it’s still weird seeing you walk through that door. Should I get used to it? You gonna stick around a little while?

Rj: Well, that’s the plan.

Thomas: That’s awesome. I know dad and brooke will be really ecstatic about that.

Rj: Well, I mean, it’ll give him a chance to make a designer of me yet.

Thomas: Speaking of, if you’re looking for him, I actually– I don’t know where he is.

Rj: I’m not looking for him. I’m looking for hope. I know you two spend a lot of time together, so you know, assumed she’d be with you.

[ Thomas clearing his throat ]

Hope: Steffy thinks I have feeling for thomas?

Liam: Yeah. I mean, against every instinct I have, I’ve been– I’ve been putting up with the two of you working together, being told at every turn that there’s nothing to worry about, that I’m the one overreacting and now I learn that there might be something going on between you two, so I’m– I need– I need answers from you, like now, hope. Right now. With moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, a great rela douglas’ sake as

Rj: You know, I think it’s actually really good that you and hope are getting along. Not only for the business’ sake, obviously, but for douglas’ sake as well.

Thomas: Yeah, well, if you wanna have a happy kid, it’s pretty simple. You just gotta make sure that his parents have a great relationship.

Rj: And they do, it seems. I mean, come on, you two are at the top of your game, right? In business, as parents, I mean, what, come on. Am i leaving anything out? Come on.

Thomas: No, no, no. I– I– we’ve made a lot of changes, uh, but I had to make changes first and those changes were long overdue.

Rj: Well, you know what? Props to you for taking the energy to look at yourself and see what’s wrong and then it’s even harder to try and correct those things, so.

Thomas: That’s what I want, you know. I wanna move forward and exceed everyone’s expectations. I wanna be a designer that people look up to. A co-worker that hope can look to and be proud of and a brother my sister can be proud of. Hey, a brother my half-brother could finally be proud of.

Finn: What’s going on with thomas?

Steffy: Oh, no. Nothing. Thomas isn’t the problem.

Finn: So, then– oh. Hope.

Steffy: Uh-huh.

Finn: And the feelings you think she has for your brother.

Steffy: What I thought I saw? Thomas is doing all the right things. He’s focused on work, his son. He’s going to therapy. I am confident thomas will continue to prove himself, as long as hope remembers that she’s married.

Finn: You really think that–

Steffy: I know it. I know what I saw. Look, thomas is doing so well, he is, but he is human and his feelings ran deep for hope and if hope is sending out these signals that she could be a possibility for him, like– look, I’m not going to let her or anyone undermine my brother or how far he’s come.

Hope: So, you’re accusing me of having feelings for thomas because steffy told you so.

Liam: I’m not accusing you, I’m asking you. Is there anything you have to tell me about you and thomas?

Hope: I mean, what I have to tell you is that I am feeling very ambushed right now, so can you please share with the room. What else did steffy say to you?

Liam: Something I didn’t want to hear. Something I didn’t believe. I told her it was ridiculous. I– I told her that whatever it is she thinks, she misinterpreted because I know you and you’re kind and you’re compassionate and you’re forgiving and that there’s never been anything but friendship between you and him.

Hope: Then you would be right. You would be right, liam.

Liam: But I also know steffy. She’s not a gossip and she has no reason to target you or our marriage at this point.

Hope: Are you kidding me? After everything she’s put us through in the past, of course that is what she is doing.

Liam: That was when it was about me. This is about her brother. She is protecting him. That’s the mode she’s in right now. She doesn’t want anyone to stall his progress.

Hope: Oh, oh. So, she’s– so she’s worried about me derailing thomas? Me corrupt him?

Liam: I don’t– I don’t know, hope. I don’t know. All I know is what steffy told me she saw, which is the two of you– the two of you in the design office. You didn’t know she was there. You were caressing his hands. You were gazing into his eyes. She said she knows what it looks like when a woman has feelings for a man and that is what she saw. Your feelings for thomas. It’s amazi a pen and start sketching,

Rj: Dude, you don’t have to

Rj: Dude, you don’t have to go any extra miles for me. Okay? I’m proud of you. Seriously. Just as long as you don’t try to convince me to pick up a pen and start sketching, we’re chilling.

Thomas: All right, is, uh, dad still hounding you?


Rj: The guy is… relentless, constantly. It’s amazing.

Thomas: You know, ridge forrester is, uh, used to getting what he wants.

Rj: Maybe I’m the rude awakening dad needs.

Thomas: What about brooke? She trying to get you to join the family business?

Rj: She doesn’t care what I’m doing as long as I’m happy. I mean, I think dealing with the family drama at work and then dealing with it at home is just… it’s just not my kind of thing.

Thomas: Yeah, I– I– I admire how you’re able to stay above the fray.

Rj: Well, you know, you just don’t engage. I mean, come on, we’re all so blessed. There’s no reason why we shouldn’t all get along.

Thomas: Yeah, that’s true. I mean, look at our moms, choosing themselves over our dad.

Rj: I did not see that one coming.

Thomas: No one did. Least of all dad.

[ Rj snickering ]

Rj: You know, I’m actually, I’m genuinely really happy that you’re getting along with hope. I just wanted to tell you that. I– it’s no fun watching my brother and sister go at it against each other all the time.

Thomas: Yeah, I’m, uh, I’m glad those days are finally behind us.

Rj: I believe you. Just… treat hope with the kindness and respect she deserves.

Thomas: Trust me. You don’t have to worry about hope.

Steffy: The look in hope’s eyes when she was caressing thomas’ hands, she was lost in him.

Finn: Yeah, but you’re not sure if you’re reading more into the situation than what there was.

Steffy: I know desire when I see it. I’m not gonna let it happen. I’m not gonna let hope pull thomas into that darkness. He has come so far. So, that’s why I had to say something.

Finn: To thomas?

Steffy: To liam. He was here earlier. He wanted to spend some time with– with kelly and then when she went down, he just started going off about thomas and his obsession with hope and that it’s never gonna end and that hope is the victim and that she’s this innocent and she’s so trusting and I just couldn’t hear it anymore. I couldn’t let liam continue to drag thomas, so I… I said it.

Finn: You said it. You actually told liam your suspicions that hope might have feelings for thomas?

Steffy: Yeah. I had to defend my brother.

Hope: I honestly don’t know what to think right now. I thought we were past this chapter of steffy trying to interfere in our relationship.

Liam: That’s not what she’s doing. It’s not about us. It’s about her brother, she’s defending him.

Hope: By throwing me under the bus. There is nothing going on with thomas.

Liam: What about what she saw, hope? I really want to believe you.

Hope: Then do it.

Liam: What if you’re in denial? Because you’ve been there before. You have. When it comes to him, you have.

Hope: So, you’re saying that steffy knows how I feel better than I do myself? Do you understand how insulting that is?

Liam: I know, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that it’s insulting. This is not a subject I can afford to walk on eggshells for anymore. I’m sorry. It’s too dangerous.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. It’s not– it’s not– it’s not dangerous. Thomas isn’t dangerous. I certainly am not dangerous. Liam, I love you. Please tell me that you believe that.

Liam: I love you too, hope. It’s– it’s not– it’s just– it’s just too much. Do you understand? This is– this is all, it’s too much. At this point, we’ve gone too far and there is nothing that is going to convince me he’s not a threat to our marriage except the one thing that you should have done that you said you were going to do a long time ago. Stop working with him. Stop. Have feelings for thomas.

Finn: No, I’m just– I’m just a little shocked that you actually told liam that you think hope might have feelings for thomas.

Steffy: Liam was going on and on accusing thomas. I couldn’t stay silent. Look, I am the first one to come down on thomas, but I’m not gonna blame him for something he’s not guilty of. He’s a different person. We can’t derail all the progress he’s made. You know, I– I get being protective of your brother, but you telling liam that hope might have feelings for thomas, that’s like dropping a bomb right in the middle of their marriage.

Steffy: That was never my intention, babe. I didn’t want to upset liam. I don’t want to make trouble in their marriage and I don’t want to upset hope, but liam deserves to know what’s going on. Liam should be concerned about hope, not thomas.

Hope: You’re ordering me to stop working with thomas?

Liam: I don’t– I don’t– I don’t know what to say. I– he– he has to be cut off.

Hope: Okay, well, he’s my lead designer and we’re turning hope for the future around together, and this line needs–

Liam: I know. I know the line needs you. I know the line needs you, hope, I know how much the line means to you. I just don’t know what else to do. I mean, I’ve heard it. I’ve heard all the reasons why thomas has to stay in your life when he has such access to you from working with you, when he sees you moment after moment and day after day, the guy– the guy gets you more than I do.

Hope: Okay, um… liam, I’m– I am sorry that this has been so difficult for you, I really am, but we’re on a deadline and I’m a professional, just like you, and I have been running my line for years and I’m not going to have you dictate to me how to do it.

Liam: How do you– how– how do you think this is about me and your career? It’s not about your career. It’s about our marriage. And none of this would be happening right now if you had done the one– the one thing that you told me you would do a long time ago, which is just– just keep him away.

Hope: Away? Away? Away? Away, really? That’s douglas’ father. We’re his parents.

Liam: Yeah, there it is. Okay. Ad nauseam. I– I’ve heard this over and over how intertwined you two are, how cosmically connected you are to the man who kept beth away from us! I am so tired of fighting this battle! I’m exhausted! I’m sorry, I can’t have him living rent free in my head anymore. I can’T. I just can’t– I can’T.

Hope: Then stop! Stop obsessing. Stop trying to protect us from this man that does not exist anymore. He has changed, and either you can accept that… or just… let it go. But here’s the thing that really, really gets me out of all of this is, um, the fact that you always believe everyone else but me. You never trust me.

Liam: I’ve always trusted you. This is just the first time I’ve been given a reason not to.

Hope: Oh… so what now? What do you think is going on, liam?

Liam: I need a straight answer from you. Is steffy right? Do you have feelings for thomas? Yes or no?

Hope: The answer is no, liam. No.

[ Sobbing ] I love you. My commitment is to you. Our relationship is nothing but professional.

[ Whispering ] My heart… is here with you, always. With our marriage and– and our family and our life, and this beautiful… this beautiful life that we built together. I love you. I love you. Look at me. I love you. I love you, I love you. I’m sorry. Don’t ever doubt that I love you. I’m sorry.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: Look, I am not saying this to spread rumors or talk badly about hope.

Liam: I don’t think you are, it’s just not true.

Steffy: You say things feel weird when hope and thomas are together.

Liam: Yeah, but not like that.

Steffy: I’m just telling you what I saw.

Liam: No, what you’re doing is trying to protect your brother.

Steffy: Yes, I am. He has dedicated himself to writing his life, regaining our trust, and I’m not gonna let anyone interfere with that. So, if you have any concerns about hope and thomas, if you have any suspicions, it’s not because of thomas. I think it’s hope. It’s hope.

Thomas: Okay. So, if we incorporate the belt design, then that would draw the attention down. What do you think? Hope?

Hope: Hm. What? Oh.

Thomas: This is just– isn’t working at all, is it?

Hope: There are individual elements that, uh, I like, but it’s just not gelling together for some reason and I’m just too tired to figure it out right now.

Thomas: Are you, um, are you still thinking about your phone call with liam?

Hope: Yes. I mean, he knows we’re working on this collection and yes, there are going to be some late nights, but I just don’t– like, there’s no reason for him to get so upset and practically hang up on me.

Taylor: You know, I– I’m not sure who’s more hurt about this, my son or me.

Brooke: Taylor.

Taylor: Hm.

Brooke: Hope didn’t mean to hurt either one of you and neither did I. And if we knew that thomas was gonna overhear that conversation–

Taylor: She still would’ve said all those awful things about thomas.

Brooke: No, you don’t understand. She was trying to make a point. She was trying to get through to me by going overboard.

Taylor: Why was she going overboard? I– are you– are you saying– are you saying that she didn’t mean it?

Brooke: No, not the way it sounded. Really, she feels terrible.

Taylor: It’s still doesn’t make any sense. Why would hope feel the need to reassure you that nothing’s going on? You must think that there is.

Taylor: Okay.

Brooke: Uh, look, let’s sit for a second. I really don’t want this to cause tension between us. I don’T. I mean, hope already talked to thomas and she apologized.

Taylor: Yes and thomas graciously accepted her apology and they– they put it behind them.

Brooke: Okay. Well, maybe you and I can do the same thing.

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, we can. We can. But first, I just– I just need to understand, um, why hope would say those things for your benefit? Because it– it– it– it doesn’t make sense to me. Why would she say that unless you thought something was going on, which means there’s something that you’re not sharing with me. What is it?

Hope: I’m trying to be understanding. I’m sensitive to liam’s feelings.

Thomas: You’ve always taken his concerns seriously.

Hope: Thank you. I mean, it’s like no matter how many times I reassure him about us, he still opposes us working together. And it’s just– it’s exhausting. I have plans. I– I have things that I want to accomplish and it would be nice if my husband supported me in that and instead it’s like he’s just looking for something to go wrong. And it’s just– it’s wearing me down.

Liam: So what does that even mean? Hope’s the problem. What does that mean?

Steffy: It could explain why you’re feeling so anxious and uncomfortable that you don’t believe me.

Liam: It’s not even that. It’s just what you’re saying doesn’t make sense.

Steffy: It doesn’t make sense if you continue to blame thomas. Liam, I’m sorry, I don’t wanna hurt you, but I can’t allow you to continue blaming thomas for your wife’s feelings.

Liam: For thomas. You’re– you’re– you’re saying hope has feelings for thomas.

Steffy: Yeah, she does.

What are folks 60 and older

up to these days?

Brooke: Taylor, come on. You’ve gotta believe me. Hope feels awful about this. And so do I. And she is genuinely sorry for everything that she said.

Taylor: For your benefit. Are you really that worried about hope’s marriage that– that she had to absolutely trash my son in order to reassure you?

Brooke: Well, actually, I am worried about their marriage. This has been a struggle for liam.

Taylor: Sounds like a liam problem to me. This has nothing to do with thomas. Nothing at all. There’s no reason that– that hope should have gone after him the way that she did. I am so tired of having to constantly defend my son to everyone. I really am, but I will continue to do it until you and liam and everyone else realize that my son is not a threat. Especially not to hope and liam’s marriage.

Hope: I just want liam to respect my decision.

Thomas: To work with me?

Hope: Well, and to save the line and that’s what we’re doing here. All these late nights and long hours. I mean, we’re giving this line our all.

Thomas: I don’t think he wants to stand in the way of that.

Hope: Well, he clearly doesn’t trust me.

Thomas: I don’t think that’s true.

Hope: That’s how it feels.

Thomas: It’s me that he doesn’t trust.

Hope: Mm-mm. He clearly doesn’t trust my judgment and that is what is frustrating. He doesn’t think I know what’s best for me.

Thomas: He’s just being a little protective, okay? He’s not doubtful of you. He’s devoted to you and everyone knows that you’re committed to him.

Liam: The– the– so the– here’s the thing. There– there is nobody more generous and– and– and forgiving than hope. So– so maybe you’re just picking up on the fact that she cares genuinely about everyone, including thomas.

Steffy: Hope’s feelings might go beyond that. Liam, you need to understand things have changed.

Liam: I don’t know what that means, steffy. Changed how? Like what? Did something happen?

Steffy: I saw it. They were working in the office. Hope thought they were alone and it was the way she was looking at him, touching him. The feeling she has for him are obvious. I’m not making this up. I saw with my own eyes.

The thought of getting screened

Taylor: You know, I– I think I’m– I’m– I’m just– I’m– I’m feeling angry right now. Disappointed maybe that you’ve kept how– how you feel about thomas from me because brooke I– I thought that we had a– a– a real friendship.

Brooke: We do.

Taylor: Hm. I– I can’t help it because this whole thing is making my mind race. I’m– I’m wondering, you know, if you– if you’re keeping all of this from me, what else are you keeping from me? So, is there anything else I deserve to know? Anything happen with ridge?

Brooke: What? No.

[ Brooke scoffing ]

Taylor: All right. I just had to ask.

Brooke: I don’t wanna be at odds with you. Can’t we just drop this?

Taylor: Yeah. Yep. Yep. We can drop it. I think it would just– it would help a lot if, uh, if you could just believe in thomas.

Brooke: Uh, yeah. Well, I guess I have some thinking to do.

Taylor: Yeah.

Brooke: But the last thing I would want is for this situation to cause permanent damage.

Thomas: So, this isn’t working either?

Hope: Oh, it’s just– it’s me. I– I can’t focus right now.

Thomas: No, it sucks. Look, I’ll– I’ll keep working at it and I’ll– I’ll get back to you with any changes.

Hope: No, I thought we could fix this together, but clearly I can’t fix anything right now.

Thomas: Okay. Wait, hold on. We’ll just– we’ll take another crack at it in the morning.

Hope: Oh, we need to get this done now.

Thomas: You can’t– you can’t force it, hope.

Hope: Okay. All right. You know what? Fine, fine. I’m still upset. I’m upset. I’m upset because liam is treating you unfairly. You– you’ve done nothing, but– but try to prove yourself and– and you’ve been understanding and respectful and it’s just–

Thomas: Yeah, look, after everything that I’ve done in the past, I sort of understand him being on guard.

Hope: I get that, but how long do you have to keep proving yourself for? I mean, what? That has to go on forever? You shouldn’t have to defend yourself.

Thomas: I don’t know. Look, it doesn’t bother me that much talking about my past. It’s what’s made me into the person I am and I’m kinda proud of the– the changes I’ve made.

Hope: Then you are a bigger, better person than me because I am tired of justifying myself or my choices or what I choose to do in my career and quite frankly, I’m tired of it. And you know what, thomas? I’ve had enough. So, I’m going to go home and I’m going to clear this up with liam once and for all.

Liam: You’re wrong, steffy. You’re wrong. I’m sorry.

Steffy: It’s what I saw.

Liam: Yeah. Well, then what you saw doesn’t mean what you think it does. I made the exact same mistake when– when hope fell off that pedestal, when thomas caught her. I thought I was walking in on something, like something was going on, but– but it wasn’T. And it isn’T.

Steffy: Hope was gazing into thomas’s eyes, caressing his hands. I know what it looks like when a woman has feelings for someone.

Liam: Can you stop, please. Just stop.

Steffy: Look, I can’t ignore what I saw and I don’t think you should either.

Liam: I– hope is completely committed to me, steffy. She’s my wife. I mean, I’ve just– I’ve just been telling my– my dad and my brother and everyone who will listen, how– how connected we are. I have to talk to her, don’t I?

Steffy: Yeah, you do. I think that is long overdue. You have to have a conversation and you need to be real honest. I’m sorry, I know this is painful, but I had to let you know because this could be bad for everyone, including you, hope, and especially my brother. He has been extremely professional and he hasn’t crossed any lines. I’m certain of it. Just can’t say the same about hope.

Thomas: You are the most

principled and moral person

I’ve ever met. You’re nothing

like your mother.

Here. Come here.

Steffy: My brother is doing everything he possibly can to redeem himself.

Hope: No, I know. I– I know.

Steffy: Do you know that? Because what I just saw was you flirting with thomas. And I know that sounds so crazy because thomas is the one we’re supposed to be worried about, not you. Not sweet hope. Hope who never misbehaves. But you are now because I saw you flirting with my brother.

Hope: Hey.

Liam: Hi. Um, donna took the kids for the night, so. You’re home a lot earlier than I thought.

Hope: Well, yeah. I think we have some things we need to talk about. I didn’t really appreciate the way you got off the phone with me. I get that you’re worried about thomas, especially given everything he’s done in the past, but I keep telling you over and over again that– that he’s changed and you don’t believe me and you don’t listen to me and quite frankly, I’m starting to get a little frustrated with this judgment and lack of trust.

Liam: Yeah, trust.

Hope: Well, I could see how you might not view it that way, but I’m telling you that’s how it’s starting to feeL. That you don’t trust me to make the decisions that are– that are best for me, and liam, I’m not that teenager that you met anymore. I’m– I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I– I’ve developed a successful fashion line, one that I am very proud of and I’m not just going to throw that away because you’re insecure about thomas. Look, I get that you don’t trust him and you probably never will, but can you at least try to have faith in me, your wife?

Liam: I’ve always had faith in you. It was about what thomas is capable of whenever he decides he wants to get close to you. But now, I– I– I don’t– I don’t know. Maybe– maybe I had it wrong. I saw steffy today.

Hope: Okay. Okay. See now that– that is a perfect example. So, you get to spend time with your ex-wife, with your track record and I take no issue with it and yet, I can’t work with my lead designer?

Liam: Steffy has a husband and a family of her own that she adores. Hope, it’s not the same.

Hope: Okay, well, maybe it would be the same if you could just accept thomas.

Liam: The way you have?

[ Liam sighing ] I wasn’t gonna get into this today, but, um, well, I heard something this evening that I wasn’t, uh, expecting to hear. I guess you weren’t the only one who wanted to talk to me about thomas today, but steffy made a really… interesting case for why thomas isn’t the problem.

Hope: Yes. It’s what we’ve been trying to tell you. So, if you don’t believe me, can you at least try to believe her? I mean, thomas, his perspective has changed. He– he’s not making excuses anymore. He’s not blaming other people for his problems. He’s not doing this all for show, liam. He really has worked on himself to become a– a dependable, caring man. And everyone else can see it except for you.

Liam: Well, it was hard to believe what steffy was telling me. You’re right. She did defend thomas. Um, she said that he has changed and he does respect my marriage and he’s not the one I should be worried about. You are. Steffy said you have feelings for him.

Brooke: I’m really worried about you, honey.

Hope: Don’t be, mom.

Brooke: You said that you want nothing to do with thomas and that you remember the things that he’s done in the past.

Hope: Of course, I do. I could never forget that.

Brooke: Okay. Well, something keeps echoing in my head. You also said that thomas isn’t the issue. You are. So what does that mean? Please tell me. Are you or are you not attracted to thomas?

Taylor: I just can’t believe that hope would say those derogatory things about you.

Thomas: Okay. Well, she didn’t mean it, right? And she already explained why.

Taylor: Mm-hmm. Okay. Well, um, just to clarify, everything has been good with you and hope, right?

Thomas: Yeah, they were. I mean, they are.

Hope: Okay. So, explain to me one more time, what was the point of hope attacking your character?

Thomas: I think it honestly was just to placate her mother.

[ Liam laughing ]

Liam: Your throne, my lady.

Kelly: I’m so happy you’re here, daddy.

Liam: Yeah, me too. Thank you for, uh, letting me crash your girl’s night.

Steffy: Hayes went down already and finn’s working another late night shift. So kelly thought, “why not have daddy come over for a nice late night cookie?”

Liam: A cookie? I get one? That’s what I’m worth to you? Do you hear this? Unreal, this woman.

Kelly: We need to save some for the man in the moon.

Liam: That’s exactly what I was thinking. We save some for the man in the moon. What do you say you, me, and mommy, go outside in a second a6e yell at him. We’ll just yell at him. We’ll just ask him if he wants to– “hey, you want a cookie?” Like that.

Kelly: Like howl?

Liam: We could howl.

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: Do you know that I’m a championship howler? Do you wanna– you wanna practice right now? Let’s go right now. Three, two, one.

[ Liam and kelly howling ] You want a cookie?

Kelly: You’re so funny, daddy.

[ All laughing ]

[ Liam howling and coughing ]

Kelly: You sound funny, daddy.

Liam: Funny, yes, but do you like my howling?

Kelly: Now you do it, mommy.

[ Steffy howling ]

Liam: She’s really good. I think man in the moon’s gonna hear us tonight.

Kelly: Maybe we can read him a story too.

Liam: Ah, yes.

Steffy: It’s a great idea.

Liam: Is this like maybe the best night ever?

Kelly: Yeah. It’s so fun when we’re together as a family.

Liam: Yeah, it is.

Thomas: Okay. There’s no reason to get upset.

Taylor: Well, thomas, I was– I was talking to brooke earlier, she didn’t mention this at all. So there’s some–

Thomas: Well, hold on a second though. It– it makes sense that brooke would still have reservations about me.

Taylor: Fine. Okay. That’s fine. But what is she so suspicious about?

Thomas: I’m guessing she just thinks I’m gonna get involved somehow and come in between hope and liam’s marriage, but that’s not gonna happen. I– I would never do that and nothing is coming in between hope and liam.

Brooke: You said that you were having feelings.

Hope: Well… yeah, I meant that in that sometimes I find myself having doubts and uncertainty and I feel really, really bad about that.

Brooke: Regarding thomas?

Hope: Yes. Mom, it’s– he has been a professional. He’s been nothing but a gentleman and I just– I hate that and I don’t want anything to undermine all that progress that he’s made.

Brooke: Well, I don’t want that either.

Hope: Okay. Good. So then believe me when I tell you that he has changed, okay? He actually is quite a remarkable man in many ways. Diabetes can serve up a lot of questions,

Liam: Hey, you know, we’re always gonna be a family, right, kel?

Steffy: Yeah. Whether your dad and I are together or not.

Kelly: I know, but I like when we do things at the same time.

Steffy: We like that too.

Liam: Yeah. ‘Cause we have a blast, don’t we?

Steffy: Yeah.

Liam: We’re so proud of you. We really are. We’re proud of how kind you are, how loving you are.

Steffy: How dedicated you are and patient. You are the best role model to your siblings.

Liam: Do you know what beth’s first word was when she was a little baby? ‘Cause it wasn’t dada. It wasn’t even mama. It was keh-wee.

Steffy: Oh, yes, our little keh-wee.

Kelly: I’m not little anymore, mom.

Steffy: Oh, yes. I– I forgot. You are a big girl. But you’ll still always be my baby.

Liam: And you’re always gonna be my baby too. Speaking of, let’s do jammies

Kelly: And then we can go howl at the man in the moon? Tell him sleep tight?

Liam: This is a perfect plan, I think. Let’s do it.

Steffy: All right.

Liam: Come with me. Good night, mom.

Taylor: I’m gonna give brooke the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe she is picking up on a vibe that I’m not seeing.

Thomas: I don’t know. But I can tell you that any feelings I have for hope are purely platonic.

Taylor: No, honey. I– I believe you. I’ve seen it. I’ve– I’ve seen how you’ve created healthy boundaries and a– and a very professional work environment.

Thomas: I– I– I feel like I have and I think that she’s expressed that to me, you know? And– and– and I haven’t done anything to make her feel uncomfortable.

Taylor: So what would brooke have to be concerned about?

Hope: You’ve gotta drop this. Please, mom. Okay? You have nothing to worry about. I have everything under control.

Brooke: What does that even mean?

Hope: It means that I love liam. I love my family. I love our marriage and I wouldn’t allow anything or anyone to get in between that.

Brooke: Okay. Of course, you wouldn’t want that. And I wouldn’t want that either. I just wanna know you’re okay. That’s why I keep going on about this.

Hope: I am fine. I’m– I’m fine. Okay. I’m fine.

Brooke: There is still something I need to clarify.

Hope: Do I have feelings for thomas? Have my feelings for him changed? Yes, mom. Because he has changed. And that is why I felt so horrible about the things that he overheard. I mean, that really bothered him.

Brooke: Well, it seems like you smoothed that over.

Hope: Yeah. But he still didn’t deserve to hear any of that. I mean, he’s made so much progress. All the hard work he’s put into becoming a better person, a better father, a better partner for hope for the future. I just… I don’t want anything to ruin his success, okay? So can you please just not look for problems where there are none, mom? I get that you love me. I get that you’re worried about me, but you don’t need to be.

Brooke: Because you have everything under control.

Hope: Yes. Hi. I keep my home fresh with febreze fade defy plug.

Taylor: Hi.

Brooke: Hi.

Taylor: Do you have a minute?

Brooke: Uh, yeah. What’s up?

Taylor: Great question. I was, uh, wondering the same thing.

Brooke: About?

Taylor: Well, I was, uh, I was just in the design office talking to thomas and he told me about the conversation that he overheard between you and hope.

Brooke: Yes. Uh, I regret that he had to hear that. So does hope.

Taylor: Mm. Yeah. Can you imagine what that must have been like for thomas to hear those kinds of things from people that he thought were in his corner, just to find out that they’re not. Can you imagine how that made him feel?

Brooke: I’m sorry that thomas was hurt. Really, I am.

Taylor: Are you? Because thomas also told me that he talked to hope and she said that she only said those terrible things about him for your benefit. Why, brooke? We were just having a talk about thomas. We were talking about how he’s changed, how he’s really turned his life around and everything was so positive. So what am I missing? What are you not telling me?

Thomas: I don’t know. This– this whole thing is just not speaking to me.

Hope: What about it isn’t resonating?

Thomas: I don’t know. It’s just weird. It’s stale. It’s boring.

Hope: I get what you’re saying.

Thomas: Okay. So, I’m not crazy. Maybe you should take a stab at it ’cause I’m probably just overthinking it.

Hope: No. No. I– I don’t wanna– I just– I’m totally distracted anyway.

Thomas: What’s wrong?

Hope: I keep thinking about what happened earlier. What I said to my mother. I didn’t mean it.

Thomas: Right. It’s fine. Just forget it. I already have.

Hope: How are you like this?

Thomas: A lot of coffee. Not enough sleep.

Hope: No, I just mean, I don’t know, optimistic, forgiving.

Thomas: After everything I’ve done and– and how much forgiveness and grace you’ve shown me, how could I not be forgiving?

Hope: See, this is what I’m talking about. This is the evolution. Your heart has softened and you’ve… you’ve let the light in. It’s a beautiful thing to see.

Liam: Well, that was fun.

Steffy: Yeah. We actually howled at the moon.

[ Both laughing ]

Liam: At the request of our wolf cub daughter.

Steffy: It’s kinda cathartic.

Liam: Yeah. It really was. Glad we didn’t wake up hayes. Kelly’s got some pipes on her.

Steffy: I know.

Liam: Geez.

Steffy: She is adorable. You see that big smile on her little face. She’s so cute.

Liam: And then tucking her in when she was like– like we had to have equal kisses.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. Five for me, five for daddy.

Liam: I don’t wanna upset you, but I got six.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Steffy: Well.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: Well, you deserve it. She loves having you here. She didn’t want the night to end.

Liam: I know. I know. She– she kept asking for the light to stay on.

Steffy: More water.

Liam: And then she needed another pillow. And then, she needed the noise machine. And then– [ Laughing ]

Steffy: High maintenance sleeper.

Liam: Yeah, I know. Where does she get that from?

Steffy: Very funny.

Liam: I’m hilarious. I’m the most hilarious.

Steffy: Mm-hmm.

Liam: I’ll tell you what, that kid just fills me up.

Steffy: She changed our lives forever.

Liam: I’ll never forget us just like seeing her for the first time.

Steffy: Say hi.

Say hi to you daddy.

Liam: She’s so incredible.

Steffy: I know.

Liam: We made that.

Steffy: Yes, we did.

We did together. We made her.

Liam: I’ll tell you what I can’t wait for. When she’s old enough to understand like all of this, like how lucky she is to have this like, smart, successful mother, you know, that’s gonna love her forever.

Taylor: Just tell me what’s going on, please. I– I wanna get all of this out in the open.

Brooke: Yeah. I’m– I’m happy you came to me. I mean, we need to communicate. And we’ve grown too close to let our children tear us apart.

Taylor: I thought so.

Brooke: Uh, it’s– it’s never my intention to lie to you, taylor.

Taylor: It’s never your intent– how about just don’t lie? Just don’t lie to me. Ugh. I need to know how you feel about my son and I just– I just want you to be straight with me.

Brooke: Okay. Uh, all right. Yes, I will be honest, okay?

Taylor: Okay. That will be great.

Brooke: I’m not sure I’m quite there yet. I– I’m not a hundred percent comfortable with thomas and hope working together. I mean, I thought I was, but now…

Taylor: Now what? What?

Brooke: I don’t know. I– I wanna give thomas the benefit of the doubt. I really do, but I’m also worried about my daughter’s life with liam.

Taylor: Oh, my god, brooke. Thomas is not going to do anything to interfere with hope and liam’s marriage.

Thomas: Okay. Maybe– maybe we can get rid of the ruffles and– and add in some extra color. Maybe a little teal swooping through the design.

Hope: Maybe.

Thomas: You’re just not into it.

Hope: No, I just don’t–

Thomas: Ugh. I know. Ugh. But it’s not– it’s not all lost. Like, there’s potential here, so I can’t just scrap it. I just… maybe I just need to take it back to the drawing board.

Hope: Shoot.

Thomas: What’s up?

Hope: I didn’t realize how late it has gotten. I need to give liam a call.

Thomas: Oh.

Liam: I know. When does the tea party phase end?

[ Phone ringing ] Hey.

Hope: Hi.

Liam: So, I was just about to pick up the food on the way home. Donna said that she can watch the kids for the night, so that’s good. Gives us some extra time.

Hope: Um, well, actually a bit of a change of plans. I am not going to be able to make dinner.

Liam: Oh, no. Why?

Hope: Well, it’s just, um, thomas and I, we are still at the office and I need to work a little later.

Liam: You and thomas. Um, okay. That can’t wait until morning?

Hope: No, we are on a deadline.

Liam: Well, that– oh, that’s convenient for him ’cause you were on a deadline the other night and a couple of times last week and we–

Hope: Well, we are having some setbacks.

Liam: Yeah, I don’t– it’s not– it’s not the fact that you’re working late. It’s the– it’s okay. Um, I’ll just– whatever, do your thing and I’ll, uh, I’ll just– I’ll– I’ll talk to you when you get home. Bye. Well, that’s just awesome. Another late night with thomas. Another canceled dinner. Is it– am I– am I just being unreasonable or does it feel like hope doesn’t give a damn?

Steffy: Of course hope gives a damn.

Liam: Like I know– I know– I know that he’s your brother and you love him and I’m sorry if this offends you, but the fact that I can’t ever trust thomas is a problem. And I hear– I hear what everybody’s saying. That he’s, like, rehabilitated and he is this like, shiny new person, but I’m just, I’m sorry. Like, I’m not– I’m not convinced that he’ll never be up to his old tricks. It’s like– it’s like a curse. Like, I’m doomed to forever worry about thomas having feelings for my wife and I don’t know how hope doesn’t see that that’s like affecting everything?

Steffy: Why– why do you assume it’s thomas?

Liam: I know that you wanna see the good in him.

Steffy: Maybe he’s not the problem this time.

Liam: So, maybe I’m the problem? I mean, I get it, but I’m not–

Steffy: No. You got this all wrong.

Liam: I– okay.

Steffy: You keep acting like hope is some innocent victim, but the truth is, my brother has changed. He’s a different person.

Liam: Okay, but see, steffy, I don’t buy that because I’ve seen them together and I’m sorry, I can’t, like, put my finger on it, but it’s weird. Like, something is going on there. There’s a vibe. I– I can just sense it.

Steffy: Maybe thomas isn’t the problem. Maybe it’s hope. I’m sorry, liam. I don’t wanna hurt you, but I think your wife has feelings for thomas.

Thomas: I mean it, hope. You gave me my life back. Another chance at my career. I’m so thankful for you, and you letting me come back here.

Hope: [ Laughs softly ] Well, I– I’m glad I put my faith in you, because look at what you’ve– you’ve done for me. My line is thriving, and giving you another chance at hope for the future is easily one of the best decisions I think I’ve– I’ve ever made.

Thomas: It’s not just hope for the future. You gave me another chance at my family. Another chance with happiness.

Taylor: Hey, brooke. I did something sneaky.

Brooke: Uh-oh. What?

Taylor: Well, um… I convinced thomas to give me early access to his latest designs.

Brooke: Oh! Okay. You’re taking advantage of your connection, I see.

Taylor: Yeah. You can get in on it, too, if you’d like. I mean, have you– have you– have you seen anything that they’ve– they’ve done?

Brooke: Oh, yeah. Yeah, some beautiful pieces.

Taylor: Feels really good, you know? That everything’s working out for them. Don’t you think?

Brooke: Uh, yeah. Yeah. I– I think so, yeah.

Liam: Now, go over to the second column. Yeah, do you see how some of those numbers don’t line up? Right, well, that’s what I want to get– uh, just take a look at this for me, and– and get back to me in the morning. Of course. Okay.

Bill: You don’t have to hang up. I could have waited or come back, whatever.

Liam: No, no, it’s fine. Also, that guy’s obnoxious. Um, what’s– what’s up?

Bill: Well, I’ve been reviewing some of the deals you oversaw while I was… preoccupied with sheila.

Liam: Okay.

Bill: We need to talk.

Liam: Uh, yeah. No, we can definitely talk. I just want you to know, I can explain–

Bill: You did a phenomenal job in my absence. Wyatt as well. You were both saddled with a lot while I was having to deal–

Liam: Being a hero? Saving all of us from sheila?

Bill: I just wanted my– my family to be safe. Speaking of family, how’s yours? How’s it going with hope?

Taylor: You know, for the first time in a long time, I finally feel like I have nothing to worry about. And I just jinxed myself, didn’t it?

Brooke: Yeah, well, there’s a lot to feel positive about these days, that’s for sure.

Taylor: Yeah! Ol’ nine-toe is behind bars. Rj’s home. Hope and thomas’s line is– is doing great. And, uh, best of all, you and I buried the hatchet. And not in each other’s backs. Things are finally looking up for the logans and the forresters.

Hope: Well, that’s very sweet of you to say, but, uh… another chance at happiness, that’s– that’s not on me. That’s on you. It’s all the hard work you’ve been– you’ve put into turning your life around, into becoming the man that you knew that you could be, and– and, I mean, you’ve done it. I mean, you’ve proved that you can be a, um, dedicated artist, a father, friend. And it is… it’s impressive. I mean, it’s– it’s made me see you in a whole new way. Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Brooke: I agree, things are looking up for our families. There’s a lot to be grateful for. I just hope it stays that way.

Taylor: Me, too.

[ Phone ringing ]

Taylor: Oh! Better get that. Hold on. Oh, yes. Um, hi, yes. This is dr. Hayes. Thank you. Thank you so much for calling me back. I, um…

Hope: But i have not made your mistakes. No. I have a good husband, and I have a great marriage. I’m nothing like you, mom.

Brooke: I’m gonna get him out of here, and away from you–

Hope: Mom, mom. It’s not thomas, it’s me. Okay? It’s my feelings for him, it’s not… him.

Brooke: What?

Hope: I don’t want anything to do with him.

Brooke: But you just said–

Hope: No, mom. You asked for the truth, and that’s it. Nothing can ever between me and thomas. Nothing ever will happen, and that’s the end of the story!

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: Hope, what are you up to?

Bill: Well, it sounds like you’re surviving the whole thomas situation.

Liam: Yeah, tryin’. Heh.

Bill: Too bad you can’t have cameras on him like I did with sheila.

Liam: Oh, my god, tell me about it. I w– I wish, I wish I could just chaperone every moment that the two of them are alone together, but it’s f– it’s fine. I just– I– I just have to trust that hope will, you know, keep him in line. And I do. If he tried anything, she would tell me about it.

Bill: You sure about that? I mean, I’m just saying that it’s possible that hope is shielding you from some of thomas’s illicit behavior. Not because she’s being deceitful, but because she loves and cares about you, and wouldn’t want you to get upset.

Liam: Well, I wasn’t worried about that, but now I am, thanks.

Bill: Well…

Liam: No, I mean– truth is, hope and I have actually done a really good job of connecting lately. She’s b– she’s been really cool about, like, carving out time where it’s just the two of us. We’ve had some really good, really intimate conversations. And I feel like if there were something to open up about, she’d open up about it.

Bill: Okay. Well, I hope you were doing more than just talking when you dropped the kids off to me the other day.

Liam: I did say “intimate,” didn’t I? [ Clicks tongue ] Um, by the way, uh, thank you for having douglas and beth over.

Bill: You kidding me? You don’t have to thank me. Love spending time with my grandkids. Especially because I have time to make up for from the–

Liam: Right.

Bill: Anyway.

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: Um, I love hangin’ out with them.

Liam: Well, I love hangin’ out with my wife. Uh, which I don’t get to do very often because of circumstances lately, so I– I appreciate it. And, you know, any chance I’m gonna have where it’s just the two of us, I’m gonna jump right on it.

Bill: Good. You have to work on your relationship, and… not take it for granted. Especially now that thomas is back in the picture.

Thomas: You do see me in a new way, don’t you?

Hope: Without a doubt.

Thomas: Yeah. I can sense it. And feel it. It’s nice.

[ Chuckles ] It’s nice, gives us, uh, somethin’ to look forward to. Healthy future, right? One where we’re not chained by the mistakes of the past. Bad decisions and desires and stuff. It’s like we can look forward. I think that’s pretty beautiful. I do respect you. I need you to know that. You and the life that you built, the marriage you have, the family. Okay, I’m gonna get back to work, ’cause those designs aren’t gonna draw themselves.

Hope: Mm.

Thomas: Well, actually, with all the, uh, chatbots we have now, maybe there’ll be an ai that comes out and takes my job from me.

Hope: Ah.

[ Laughs ] Well, uh, even if the robots do take over, I guarantee you that none of them will bring the artistry to the designs like you do.

Thomas: Ah, I guess we’ll see.

Hope: Yeah.

Thomas: [ Chuckles ] Oh. Hey, brooke. Um… all right. I’m gonna get back to the salt mines.

Brooke: Your father used to say the same thing.

Thomas: Oh, yeah. Both got that from granddad. The og salt miner.

Brooke: Mm.

Hope: Mm.

Brooke: Interesting.

Hope: Well, he heard all those terrible things that I said about him, and I feel horrible.

Brooke: Does that mean he heard what you said before that? That you have feelings for him? Did he hear that, hope? What is it? What is going on with you? Sweet pillows of softness!

Liam: So, I appreciate your concern. I even agree with it, but I’m thinkin’ maybe, are we projecting, like, a little bit, ’cause you’re talkin’ about how important it is to connect with my wife, and how I should never take that relationship for granted? And I know you’re speaking from experience, so I– I gotta ask. How’s it goin’ with katie?

Bill: Well, uh, she is probably hanging out with carter as we speak, if that’s any indication.

Liam: Huh.

Bill: But I’m not giving up. I think katie feels… safe with carter. You know, he’s a– he’s a good guy. Sensible. But I know my katie, and deep down, she doesn’t want sensible.

Liam: Are you saying that, uh, you’re the not-sensible choice?

Bill: Uh… I am saying that I am katie’s person. The father of her child. And there is nothing more important to katie than family, as it is to me. So, carter can give it his best shot, but there’s no history there. And I have to believe that eventually, that will bring my katie back to me.

Liam: Right on. I mean, unfortunately, in my case, there is history between hope and thomas, and family, because they– they share a son.

Bill: And thomas will use that to get into hope’s head. So, you be aware of that. Don’t let him get to her. Liam. Promise me. You will keep your guard up where thomas is concerned.

Taylor: Sorry that took so long– hi!

Thomas: Oh, hey, mom you–

Taylor: Hey!

Thomas: Expecting someone else?

Taylor: Well, yes! I was just in here talking to brooke, and she was–

Thomas: Oh, okay, all right. Before we get into anything, I want you to know, honestly, it just– it wasn’t that big of a deal.

Taylor: Okay. I– I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Thomas: Wai– I’m sorry, I– I assumed that brooke would have told you.

Taylor: Told me… what?

Thomas: I, um– I overheard, uh, brooke and hope talking, and the things hope was saying about me. Wait, seriously, your– your new bff didn’t tell you anything?

Taylor: No. But you better.

[ Thomas chuckling ]

Brooke: Okay, well, did he overhear you say you have feelings for him?

Hope: No. No, I was– I was trying to convince him that I didn’t mean what I said, and that’s it, okay? There was nothing else that happened.

Brooke: Why would there be anything else that happened?

Hope: Oh, my gosh.

Brooke: Uh, okay. This is what concerns me. If you want something to happen…

Hope: Mom. There is nothing to be concerned about, okay?

Brooke: Hope! I can’t help it. Earlier, you told me that you had feelings for thomas.

Hope: I–

Brooke: And then you turned it around, you denied it, you said he’s manipulative and that you would never want anything to do with him. Were you just overcompensating when you said those harsh things about thomas? You didn’t live this strong, this long to get put

[ Liam laughing ]

Liam: Let– let my guard down around thomas? Never.

Bill: Good. Very impressed with you, son. The husband and father you’ve become. The businessman.

Liam: Oh, man. Well, you know, had a great role model.

Bill: Ah. That’s a bit of a stretch, but I’ll take the compliment.

Liam: Dad. You’re the man I’m trying to be.

Bill: Come here, give me a kiss.

[ Liam laughing ]

Bill: All right, a hug. Come here, come here.

Liam: All right.

Bill: There, I snuck it in.

Liam: Gah, you did. I love you.

Bill: It’s a mutual admiration society, liam. I love you, too. And if I’m ever lucky enough to call katie my– my wife again, I am going to try to emulate you. As a husband, and how protective you are. Stay vigilant, liam. You keep your eyes on thomas and any feelings he might have for your wife.

Taylor: Okay, so how did all of this come about? Were– were you eavesdropping?

Thomas: No. No, no, no. It’s nothing like that. I– I was walking into the office, and… I overheard what hope was saying.

Taylor: Honey, what was hope saying?

Thomas: She was saying how unstable and manipulative I am.

Taylor: What?

Thomas: And she wants nothing to do with me.

Taylor: Okay, this doesn’t make any sense. Why… why would hope say that?

Thomas: I– I don’t know. Look, I– I was– I was gonna pretend like I didn’t hear it, um, but then… when she saw me and I walked in the office, um, she could tell that I overheard, and, uh, so she kind of freaked out, and started apologizing.

Taylor: Okay. That’s good, I guess. I–

Thomas: Yeah. Look, I– I’m– I– I– heh. She actually– she actually took it all back. And– and she said she didn’t mean it, and that she actually said some really sweet things. She believes I have changed now.

Taylor: Okay, I– I– um, but why would she– why would she say all the negative things that–

Thomas: I– I don’t know, maybe– maybe it’s ’cause she was talking to her mom. Right? And… brooke– brooke is still concerned about hope and me working together, and maybe that was just her way of reassuring her.

Taylor: So, hope threw you under the bus for brooke’s sake? Wow. My– my friend. You know, earlier, she had every opportunity to tell me what was going on and she didn’T.

Brooke: Oh, my god. That’s what you were doing. Overcompensating. Trying to hide your real feelings.

Hope: Mom. Stop. Please. I wasn’t overcompensating, I was just, I don’t know, I– I just– I shouldn’t have said those things. But after all the hard work that thomas has done to turn his life around, for him to overhear that? That hurt him.

Brooke: Did it? Or did he just want you to think it did?

Hope: What?

Brooke: Honey. He didn’t seem hurt at all when I came in here. You guys were laughing, and joking, and you had a connection going.

Hope: That’s because I did a little bit of damage control, mom. I tried to reassure him that I didn’t mean it.

Brooke: Mm. Okay. All of this sounds like a manipulation to me. It’s like the same old thomas. Liam was right. He’s just using this to get close to you.

Hope: Oh, my god, that is not who he is anymore.

Brooke: How can you be so sure?

Hope: Because I am, mom! You should have seen him when he walked in here. He was– he was genuinely hurt, okay? His reaction… look, anyone would be hurt in this scenario.

Brooke: Okay. Well, you said those things for a reason. I just wish I knew what they were.

Hope: Gosh, mom. Stop.

Brooke: Honey. You’ve been acting so differently lately. Coming to me and bringing up my past, and saying you don’t want to be like me.

Hope: And I– I apologized.

Brooke: I don’t need your apology. I just need to get to the bottom of this. You know right from wrong. You never wanted to be like me, ’cause you didn’t want to make the same mistakes that I made, and I understand that. But here you are, saying that you have feelings for thomas, and then you turn around and you deny it. Saying you don’t want to have anything to do with him. So, what is it, hope? And please, please don’t tell me you’re having feelings for thomas.

[ Relaxing music ]

Hope: Can you ever forgive me? Those things that you overheard, I mean, I don’t– I don’t believe that anymore, that you’re unstable or that you’re manipulative, and I– I should have never said those things, and…

Thomas: It’s okay.

Hope: It’s not, though. It’s not. It’s not okay for me to be talking that way about you, especially to my mom. I mean, the things I was saying, like I never– I didn’t want anything to do with you, or that– that nothing could ever happen between the two of us, ever. It’s like I was only saying those things, because my mom– like… I just… thomas, I do– I do think that you are a good man now, and I believe that, I do. And you are an incredible talent, you are a devoted father, brother, son, and– and I admire your dedication to changing your life and to turning it all around and making those positive changes, I mean… you’ve totally transformed yourself! I mean, you’ve transformed me, how– how I feel about…

Brooke: No fashion line is worth it, is worth risking your marriage, your family for. If he is doing something to cross the line, I need to know, because I’m gonna get him out of here, and away from you forever.

Hope: Mom. Mom, it’s not thomas, it’s me! Okay, it’s my feelings for him, it’s not him.

Brooke: What?

Hope: I don’t want anything to do with him.

Brooke: But you just said–

Hope: No, mom, you asked for the truth and that’s it. Nothing can ever happen between me and thomas, nothing never will happen, and that’s the end of the story.

Taylor: Hey, brooke.

Brooke: Oh, taylor. What are you doing here?

Taylor: Well, I had lunch with steffy, but she’s tied up in a meeting, so. What’s going on? You okay?

Wyatt: Are we looking at the same chart here? Their q2 didn’t meet expectations, their q1 fell flat and their eps is spiraling down a toilet. Wha– I’m throwing you a life raft here, jer. Well, tell ’em we’re holding firm. They’re lucky we’re not taking the offer completely off the table. All right, let me know what they say.

[ Chuckles ] I’ll let liam deal with the fallout. Thank you.

Liam: Nice.

Wyatt: Well, what are brothers for? So… how’s our little tommy-boy doing?

Wyatt: Well, did you at least lay the guy out? No? Wha–

Liam: Wyatt, I didn’t go over there to do violence.

Wyatt: Why not? He deserves it!

Liam: I– what I wanted was just to hear him say something, say… anything that I haven’t heard a dozen times before. “No, I’m a changed man, I’m really working on myself, I respect your marriage. You don’t have to worry about me.”

Wyatt: Really? What did you expect he was gonna say, “I’m still pining after your wife?” He’s not gonna admit to that!

Liam: I don’t kn– I don’t know! I don’t know the answer, I just– I was just hoping that he would– that he would tell me something that would put my concerns to rest, or at least start to.

Wyatt: And it didn’t, right?

Liam: No.

Wyatt: Leaving you constantly on guard when it comes to thomas, so nothing has changed. This– all this worrying is coming at a price, man. How are you really holding up, liam?

Brooke: I don’t know, really, how to answer that.

Taylor: Hmm. Okay, well, there’s– there’s two ways you could, actually. You could say, “yes, taylor, I’m going through something and I’m worried,” or “no, taylor, I’m fine!”

Brooke: Okay, well, I’m just, uh, a little distracted. That’s all.

Taylor: Okay. Well, there’s a start. Is there anything that I can help with?

Brooke: My new bestie to the rescue?

Taylor: Do you need rescuing?

Brooke: Honestly, for the first time in my life, I can say no. But it’s nice to know that you’re there for me.

Taylor: Yes, I am, so… are you gonna tell me what’s going on? Is everything okay?

Brooke: Mm, uh… I hope so. It’s about my daughter.

Hope: Just please know I would never want to hurt you like that, and I– I regret what I said.

Thomas: Hope, stop. Look, you don’t have to do this, I told you.

Hope: No, I know, I know what you told me. But you’re just saying that to be nice, to make me feel better about what I said, what I did.

Thomas: You didn’t do anything.

Hope: Yes, I did. Yes, I did. I said some cruel things that undermined the relationship that we have fought so hard to build, and I’m sorry. I regret every single word.

Thomas: It’s okay, like, I get it.

Hope: No, you don’T. You don’t get it, and you wouldn’t understand, because you don’t get– I mean, like, what led up to it and the things that I was saying to my mom, and just– just, you wouldn’t get it. Hi.

Wyatt: Good. It means thomas now knows you’re still keeping an eye on him.

Liam: Yeah. I mean, but how could he not, given all the things he’s done in the past?

Wyatt: You think he’s just biding his time, when it comes to hope? Like, it’s just gonna wait it out?

Liam: You know the honest truth? I have no earthly idea what’s going through thomas’s head. I mean, he says all the right things, but then all these new scenarios keep being manufactured where he and hope get to spend time alone together, so that concerns me all over again.

Wyatt: Well, and you have every reason to be concerned.

Liam: Well, thank you, I’m glad somebody sees that.

Wyatt: Of course I do!

Liam: Here’s what I don’t want. I don’t want to turn into an overprotective husband who’s just worrying about things he has no control over whatsoever.

Wyatt: No. No. No, no, no. You know what it sounds like to me? It sounds like a man who is looking out for his wife, who he loves and cherishes, in case thomas falls back into his old ways.

Liam: I mean, I’ll tell you what, the… the one thing that’s been keeping me sane lately, beside my favorite sounding board.

Wyatt: Oh, of course. Thanks.

Liam: Is, uh, is hope. How she– she stays connected with me, she– she finds ways to carve out time, to show me how much she appreciates me, and it’s in those moments, you know, where it’s just me and her, and I feel like, “oh, yeah, this is– this is what peace feels like.” Like everything is gonna be all right with the world. And it’s that– it’s that love, it’s hope’s love for me, that makes me think… I don’t know, maybe thomas won’t ever be an issue again.

Taylor: Brooke, what is going on?

Brooke: Well, I– I was thinking about hope’s line, and, um… and all the changes that have happened since she allowed thomas back in.

Taylor: Positive changes, though. Right? I mean, I know that you had your reservations at first, but…

Brooke: More than reservations. I didn’t think it was a good idea.

Taylor: Right. You didn’T. But it’s been a huge success. Because thomas jumped right in and gave everything he has to hope for the future. And you know what? So has hope. And she’s become a really positive influence in thomas’s life. She has her priorities in order, she has a healthy work/life balance. And that girl knows what she wants.

Hope: All our working together hasn’t been easy for everyone, and my mom has tried to be open, but obviously she still has her hesitations, so she brought up the san francisco trip, and the fact that we almost had to stay overnight, and she swore that you would scheme some way to get us to stay in the same room together, that you would be up to your old ways, and–

Thomas: Yeah, that’s actually weird. I– I told liam that, that’s probably what I would have done in the past, but I’m not that person anymore.

Hope: Well, yeah, I know. I told her that. I told her that you’ve been nothing but a wonderful… I mean, designer, father, friend. I mean, my mother has nothing to worry about when it comes to you. I mean, it’s me. I’m the one who–

Thomas: Wait. Hold on. You’re the one who what?

[ Heartbeat pounding ] We’re traveling all across america,

Wyatt: You know what I think?

Liam: Hm?

Wyatt: Go with that.

Liam: Uh, go way– with what?

Wyatt: With what you just said about hope’s love for you, how powerful it is, right? It’s– it’s– it’s powerful enough to get thomas out of the equation for good. Liam, you are the man that hope wants. And thinks about. The only man. You… At least from what you’ve been telling me, that she’s been making all this effort for you and showing you how much she loves yoU. I guess my only question is… are you reciprocating that?

Taylor: Okay, I– I don’t know what is going on. I don’t, but… from where I stand, hope is doing great. She– she– she is doing everything right. She is kind, she is fair, she is trustworthy, and she and liam seem to manage their– their work, their family and their marriage with ease. And they’re very much in love. I mean, of course there’s gonna be challenges, but…

Brooke: Yeah, it’s true. I mean, hope and liam have had to overcome a lot.

Taylor: Right. They have and I know that– that thomas has been a part of that. My son has made choices in the past that he would never make today. Ever. He really is evolving, and I think that hope can see that. I know that she appreciates his efforts. And you know, I– I appreciate her. And her mother. Neither one of you had to give thomas a chance again, but you did. You did, and it allowed him to really close the chapter on his obsessive feelings for hope. And both of their careers are thriving. And nothing’s gonna derail that and cause thomas to backslide.

Thomas: Hey, hey, hey. Hold on. I– I’m the one who should be apologizing to you. I’m the one who put you in this position in the first place. I hurt our entire family. I hurt you over and over again. And so it makes sense, people would think that I would go back to my dark side. And I would hurt you again, and– and they’re– honestly, they’re just looking out for you. And it makes sense, but… them coming to you with their worries and anxieties, I mean, that’s– that’s gotta be hard. It’s gotta be a lot, and stressful, and… I promise you, hope, even though they think that, even though it could have been possible, it’s not going to happen. I’m not that person anymore. I’ve moved beyond it, I can feel it.

Hope: I can, too.

Thomas: That’s what means the most. Your faith in me. Hope, I promise you, I care for you, but I’m never gonna hurt you again. I respect you. And I respect your marriage. And I’m never gonna mess with that again. You didn’t live this strong, this long to get put

Wyatt: It sounds like hope has been trying to show you how much she loves you, and she’s only thinking about you. Uh, but can you say the same?

Liam: Uh, I don’t really– I mean, I– yeah, I’m very appreciative of–

Wyatt: That’s not what I’m talking about.

Liam: ‘Kay, well, okay. But I’m also, like, super protective of her–

Wyatt: No, no, no. Protective is a whole other subject here. I’m talkin’ about… you know I’m talkin’ about, hm? You have to show her. You gotta turn on that spencer charm. I mean I can teach it to you, if you want.

Liam: I don’t need you to teach me anything. I can charm. I have charm, I know how to charm.

Wyatt: Really? Because it sounds to me, after everything that you’ve said, that hope is the one who’s been doing everything. She’s the one who’s been initiating your togetherness. Right?

Liam: I mean, no. I do stuff. Like the other night, I set up a whole romantic evening with the wine, and the candles, and–

Wyatt: Okay.

Liam: But– but yeah, you’re right. She’s the one who’s gone more out of her way.

Wyatt: Mm.

Liam: And I don’t know if– I don’t know if that’s because she feels guilty, or– or she just really needs me to know that I don’t have anything to worry about, but… yeah, you’re right. I’m not doing enough. I need to– I need to show her how I feel, too. I– I need to– I need to show hope that i don’t just trust her. I trust her around thomas.

Brooke: I agree. Thomas does seem to have his act together.

Taylor: Yes. And liam will come around, too. He just needs time to see what everyone else sees. Thomas is– is committed to becoming the best version of himself. A devoted father, a creative powerhouse. And he is winning back everyone’s trust. Especially hope’S. Because she knows she has nothing to worry about anymore when it comes to thomas.

Hope: I do believe in you, thomas. I mean, it shows. Shows in– in your work, in your parenting, in… your positivity. I mean, this thomas, I mean… this thomas is a good man. And one that I would like to have around for a very long time. Um, but still, I– what i said to my mom, and– that was just–

Thomas: Hope, just… let it go. Look, it was– like you said, it was a conversation between you and your mom. I wasn’t even supposed to hear it, so it’s– I understand.

Hope: No, except– except you don’T. You don’t, really. I mean, how could you? The way I was talking to my mom, I was trying to get her to just not worry about us working together. I was– I was trying to get her to see that, you know, there– there– weren’t any feelings there beyond just co-parenting and being co-workers.

Thomas: No, but there– there are feelings between us.

[ Heartbeat pounding ]

Thomas: Is everything okay?

[ Heartbeat pounding ]

Hope: Thomas.

Thomas: Feelings of gratitude and appreciation. You gave me another chance. Yeah. I mean, I hope that I’ve been able to show some of my gratitude by reviving hope for the future, but, I mean, you– you gave me my life back. My job, my– my family. My son. That’s all because of you, hope. I owe all of that to you.

Wyatt: Well, since hope and thomas’s presentation went so well with the buyers up in san francisco, I mean, it’d be, it’d be safe to assume that they’re gonna put in a pretty substantial order, no?

Liam: No, they already did.

Wyatt: Okay, great. Uh, here’s what I’m thinking. Let’s approach hope about doing a small photo shoot, right? Just– just the pieces that she brought to the buyers and then we take that and we tease it internationally.

Liam: Oh, yeah, that makes sense.

Wyatt: Yeah? Well, what do you think hope would say? Or is this new collection a– a secret?

Liam: Uh, i mean, only one way to find out.

Wyatt: Uh, listen. Um, I’d be happy to take point man on this if– if you wanted to keep a little distance. Uh, I– I know thomas is probably gonna be making a lot of decisions regarding the new line and you know, I know how much it pains you knowing how closely hope and thomas have been working together.

Thomas: It’s better, yeah?

Hope: Yeah.

Thomas: How’s it feel?

Model: Wonderful.

Thomas: You love

your family.

You always want to be with

liam and nothing is going

to come between you two.


[ Heart thumping ] Hope?

Hope: Oh, sorry. I was just in my head.

Thomas: That’s all right. I was just wondering if you had any other changes.

Hope: Uh, no, I say let’s– let’s see what we got and then we’ll take it from there.

Thomas: All right, that’ll do it then.

Model: Can I just say how great it is seeing you two working so well together? The continuity you bring to the line makes it fun, easier for all of us.

Hope: Well, thank you. That– that means a lot. I mean, more than you know. I mean, hope for the future is my heart and it feels like it’s beating again, stronger than ever. hope and thomas working relationship has been hard on you. That’s all.

Liam: It’s more than a working relationship.

Wyatt: Shut the front door. What happened? What did he do?

Liam: What?

Wyatt: What did he do?

Liam: Uh, douglas, you know, they– they co-parent a kid together?

Wyatt: Oh, right. No, I– I–

Liam: Dude, what the hell did you think I meant?

Wyatt: I don’t know. You’ve been so vague lately.

Liam: Oh, my god.

Wyatt: Yeah, okay. I went down a rabbit hole. Fine. All right. I just know that– that– that this has been weighing on you a lot. And that you trust hope and everything, but can you trust the situation?

Thomas: It’s been a whirlwind these last few months, huh?

Hope: Tell me about it.

Thomas: You holding up okay?

Hope: Yeah, loving every minute.

Thomas: Me too.

Hope: Well, you know, who else is thrilled about us working together again?

Thomas: Hm. Little guy, about yay high? He’s got tons of opinions. He’s always right.

Hope: That would be the one. I mean, douglas is really loving seeing us happy.

Thomas: That’s what he’s always wanted.

Hope: Who could blame him? We were finally able to come together as a team for him.

Thomas: We’ve been in a good place lately.

Hope: Yeah, it’s a– a wonderful thing. We know patients are more than their disease.

Liam: Man, I can’t tell you how happy I was when hope walked through the front door after her trip. I mean, she– you know, she was tired. She– I think clearly felt a little bad, but she was home. You know, she was safe.

Wyatt: But why? Why did she feel bad? She didn’t– she didn’t do anything wrong?

Liam: No. Okay, sorry. No, maybe that’s not– that’s not the right word. She just– she seemed concerned because she knew how much the situation was, like, upsetting me.

Wyatt: And she understands why though, right?

Liam: Oh, absolutely. And she did everything she could to like, mitigate my– my worrying.

Wyatt: Good. That’s– that’s good. I’m glad you guys are still making that connection.

Liam: Well, yeah. Well not just making a connection. Honestly, as long as I’ve known hope, I don’t think she’s ever been so, um, passionate.

Wyatt: Great, great. Then you should just– you should continue reaping those benefits. All right. Like I– I’m not– I’m saying to still be vigilant where thomas is concerned, but don’t let him dominate your life or your thoughts. Because if you do that, then he’s gonna continue to be an issue between you and hope if you’re thinking about him all the time.

Liam: Well, he’s there all the time. How can I not think about him all the time? And plus, I don’t trust him, so I trust hope, I trust hope.

Wyatt: Thank you.

Liam: I just– I don’t know, keep thinking maybe she’S… like overcompensating.

Wyatt: For what?

Liam: I don’t know for what. For– for– for spending all this time with thomas knowing, you know, how I feel about it. I’ll be back.

Wyatt: What? Where you going?

Liam: You know what I just realized? I haven’t actually looked into thomas’s eyes since the whole incident in san francisco. Not just, you know, I– I’m gonna feel better if I get a vibe, okay? I just want a vibe.

Wyatt: Punch him in the face. For me.

Thomas: Okay. This just came to me. See what you think.

Brooke: Do you two ever stop working?

Thomas: Not me, I have way too many ideas in my head. I gotta get ’em out on paper.

Hope: How long have you been standing there?

Brooke: Long enough.

Hope: Long enough for what?

Brooke: Long enough to see how well the two of you are getting along.

Thomas: Um, hope for the future is doing great. It’s really an exciting time.

Brooke: Yeah, I’ve seen the latest projections.

Hope: Yeah. And well, if that’s not enough for you, I mean, douglas has really appreciated his parents getting along.

Brooke: And that’s very important.

Thomas: It’s the least he deserves.

Brooke: I heard that the two of you almost got stranded in san francisco together.

Hope: Yeah, we came close.

Thomas: Yeah. Luckily, the crew was able to fix everything quickly and uh, hope got back to liam and the kids. She was really anxious about that. Uh, I am gonna take this stuff– I’m gonna go finish these designs in the other office, okay?

Hope: Thank you.

Thomas: Nice seeing you, brooke.

Hope: Okay. What is it? I mean, mom, you’ve been practically burning a hole through me since you walked iN. What is on your mind?

Brooke: That’s my question to you. What is on your mind, sweetheart? Head & shoulders is launching something huge.

[ Knock on door ]

Thomas: Come in.

Liam: Hi.

Thomas: Hey, if you’re looking for hope, she’s across the hall with her mom.

Liam: No– no, actually I’m, uh, here to see you, if you have a minute?

Thomas: Uh, sure. I mean, I can make one. But I’m– I’m guessing you’re not here to congratulate me on the success for hope for the future?

Liam: Why not?

Thomas: Really?

Liam: Thomas, hope for the future was on the chopping block. Hope was devastated. And in a twist that none of us saw coming, least of all me, she decided to forgive you and she rehired you and here we are months later. Her line is having its greatest resurgence and you are the lead designer. So, the credit goes to you.

Thomas: Uh, thanks. But honestly, it– it doesn’T. I’m just a facilitator. I mean, look, hope is the visionary and we’re also a team. I mean, zende makes amazing contributions to the line.

Liam: Mm-hmm. So, I take it modesty as a feature of the new and improved thomas?

Thomas: The new and improved thomas. A guy I’m guessing you don’t actually believe exists? Liam, I– I promise that I have changed, whether you believe it or not.

Liam: Would you try to put yourself in my shoes for a minute? I mean, what if it was you and hope that were married this whole time? And I was the one who pulled all the stunts that you did? Would you ever trust me again?

Hope: I have to admit, the closer we get to the relaunch, the more head space it takes up. But liam has been very understanding.

Brooke: Well, that doesn’t surprise me. He’s a sensitive, loving man.

Hope: No, I know. And I thank god for liam every day.

Brooke: And you should. You have an incredible life, hope. You have an amazing marriage with liam, wonderful kids, beth and douglas. And what you’ve created here, with hope for the future and how it’s impacted so many women around the world. You should be proud. You should be proud of what you’ve done and the person that you’ve become… in spite of me.

Hope: Mom.

Brooke: I know, I know you said that you don’t wanna be like me. And yes, that hurt me at first, but the more and more I thought about it, the more and more it made sense. Why would you wanna be like me? Why would you want to jeopardize your life and your family and your career and your kids? Why? Just for a– a man? Why would you wanna do that? I totally understand. You shouldn’t be like me.

Hope: I– I just, I– I just don’t understand where this is all coming from.

Brooke: I recognize some signs that concern me.

Hope: And what do you mean signs?

Brooke: It’s this closeness and connection that you have with thomas. It’s almost like you can speak without saying any words. It’s the way you look at him. I have to ask again. Is there something going on between you and thomas? The new raspberry watermelon dunkin’ refresher.

Thomas: I think I know what this is about. The possibility of hope and me being stranded together brings up the memories of, well, terrible things I’ve done you don’t want to be reminded of.

Liam: I don’t really need reminding, but, um, yeah.

Thomas: Okay. Well, I– I hope that that can change in the future because I have moved on, liam. And I promise to you that like san francisco, how that whole thing went down? There was no ulterior motive on my side. Like we found out last minute from carter. And when we find out that the buyers want to see hope and me together, we have to go.

Liam: I get no– I get all of that. Here’s– here’s the thing for me. If it had been anybody else that hope was traveling with, carter, zende, whatever, I know I wouldn’t have given it a second thought. But of course, because it’s you and because of our history, my brain goes into overdrive and I become hyper-protective of hope. No matter what everyone has been trying to tell me about you. You understand?

Thomas: Yeah.

Liam: I can’t buy the changed man’s story. I can’t do it, thomas. I’m sorry, I don’t think I’m ever gonna be able to let my guard down.

Thomas: Okay, fine. But liam, I– I– I can just promise you that you got nothing to worry about. Not me, not your marriage, and not hope.

Hope: I– I can’t believe that you would ask me that. Nothing is going on between thomas and me except co-parenting douglas and our working partnership. Which by the way, I’m very grateful for because thomas has made a huge difference with hope for the future.

Brooke: I am not disputing thomas’s talents as a designer. I– I think he’s great. It’s just his motives, honey. He used to be obsessed with you.

Hope: Okay, but that’s not who he is anymore, mom. He’s grown, he’s changed. I mean, he’s a friend of mine now.

Brooke: I– I would love to believe that thomas has changed, but what if he’s just gotten better at his manipulations? I am sorry. I’m just worried.

Hope: You– you have nothing to worry about, mom. There’s no reason to be.

Brooke: No reason? The two of you just almost got stranded in san francisco, hundreds of miles away and knowing the way that he operates, I’m sure he would have come up with some kind of scheme to share a room with you.

Hope: You’re wrong. You’re wrong, mom. That is not who he is anymore. The amount of time I spend with him at work, with our son, douglas. I mean, I know him better than anyone and that is not who he is anymore. I mean, mom, he has become a kind, understanding man who has been so generous with his energy and his time, and his talent. He’s been so supportive of the entire hope for the future team. And as for me, he has been nothing but a professional. And he’s been a loving father to douglas. So yes, mom, I trust thomas.

Brooke: You have a lot of nice things to say about thomas. Are you sure you’re not just trying to protect hope for the future by shielding him? If he is doing things that are inappropriate, I need to know. You need to talk to me, hope. I’m your mother. You can confide in me, please. Yes, I think thomas is a great designer and yes, I think he helped save hope for the future, but if you two are working so closely together, day in and day out, and he’s coming on to you, no fashion line is worth it, is worth risking your marriage, your family for. Hope, you’ve got to listen to me. If he is doing something to cross the line, I need to know because I’m gonna get him out of here and away from here forever–

Hope: Mom! Mom, it’s not thomas, it’s me! Okay, it’s my feelings for him. It’s not him.

Brooke: What? You know the kind of person thomas is.

Hope: Yes, yes, yes. He is, um, mentally unstable and manipulative and I don’t want anything to do with him.

Brooke: Okay. Okay. But you just said–

Hope: No, mom, you asked for the truth and that’s it. Nothing can ever happen between me and thomas. Nothing ever will happen and that’s the end of the story. Okay, that’s as far as it goes. So now, can you please just leave me alone?

Brooke: I– I’m a little scared to leave you.

Hope: Mom, I’m fine, okay? I’m going to go home to my husband. It’s okay. It’s fine. I just– I just need a moment to myself, please. All right, you have– you have nothing to be concerned about, all right? My head is on straight. I promise. Just let me work.

Brooke: Okay.

Hope: Oh, thomas.

Thomas: Uh, I just– I just wanted you to know I’m heading out.

Hope: Did you, um, did you hear that? Um, okay. Well, I’m sorry, I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean that. No, really, I didn’t mean that and– and you’ve changed and that’s not who you are anymore. I– I believe that.

Thomas: It’s okay.

Hope: No, it’s not. It’s not, it’s really, it’s not. Um, we’ve got to such a good place and I just, I need you to believe that. Um, I– I know that now and– and I– I depend on you for so many things and I don’t think that about you. I actually, I think the opposite, so… you believe me, right? Please, can you– do you believe me? I’m sorry.

[ Taylor clearing her throat ]

Taylor: Hey, stop. Come on, deacon. You’re– you’re all about creating new opportunities.

Deacon: Not the kind that you’re talking about.

Taylor: Look around you. Come on. You did all of this. Isn’t it amazing? Changes, just a few little things can make?

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Taylor: Yeah. Come on. You know, you– you– you saw an opportunity, you followed your heart. And now ii giardino is new and exciting.

Deacon: Why do I get the feeling that you’re not talking about my new menu?

Taylor: Okay, well, I kind of am. I’m– I’m– but I’m talking about your– your personal menu. See now that– now that brooke and I have sworn off of ridge, she might be into trying an old favorite again. Could be really great for both of you.

Steffy: Yeah. Dad cast a pretty long shadow in all of our lives.

Rj: It’s definitely pretty hard to ignore, that’s for sure.

Steffy: Yeah. He can be relentless.

Rj: Is that how you became co-ceo?

Steffy: Hey, I’ve had my eye on that chair for a long time, all right?

Rj: And it suits you. My sister, the reigning queen of fashion.

Steffy: Wow. Okay. Don’t let your mom hear you calling me that.

Rj: Oh, come on. She’s not territorial or competitive about stuff like that anymore.

Steffy: Um, you say that, but it kinda sounds like you still want your mom backbo with dad. Is that what you meant, rj?

Sheila: You saved my life. My heart stopped beating. I– I was fading away, but you pulled me back, my son. I can’t thank you enough for that. You couldn’t let me slip away, finn because I know that somewhere deep inside of you, you still love me.

Finn: I told you. I saved your life because that’s what I do. I treated you like any other patient in my emergency room.

Sheila: I know you did, but I really have to believe that somewhere in that big beautiful heart of yours, you haven’t forgotten that I’m your birth mother. That I am the woman that brought you into this world.

Rj: I’m not matchmaking.

Steffy: Good. ‘Cause it never turns out the way you think it will.

Rj: I know. I’m– I’m– you know. I’m not trying to get involved in any of the family drama either. It’s one of the reasons why I was away for so long. I really– I just wanna make sure that my mom’s actually happy.

Steffy: I get that.

Brooke: Rj!

Rj: Hey, mom. How’re you?

Brooke: I didn’t know you were here in the office. Oh, what a wonderful surprise.

Rj: We were, um, we were actually just talking about you a little bit.

Deacon: So you’re telling me that you really think brooke would take me back?

Taylor: You say that like it’s impossible.

Deacon: You know, you and i both know that even if ridge isn’t hanging around, he’s always in the picture.

Taylor: Oh, okay. But things have changed.

Deacon: Yeah. I’ll tell you what’s changed. She’s hanging out with my boy, hollis.

Taylor: They shared a few kisses.

Deacon: Okay. Didn’t know that.

Taylor: Okay. Brooke doesn’t want hollis. She’s made that very clear. She wants to be with someone who knows her. Someone she shares a history with. Can you think of anyone that fits the description? We live our lives on our home’s fabrics.

Finn: I don’t need to be reminded you’re my birth mother. Oh, by the way, spoke to my dad. Told me you wanted him to get you outta here?

Sheila: I just want another opportunity to show you that I– I can be a good, healthy influence in your life and hayes’.

Finn: After all the horrific things that you have done?

Sheila: I’m still family.

Finn: You shot me, sheila.

Sheila: It was an accident.

Finn: And you tried to kill steffy. You confessed to murder! That’s why you’re in here! And it’s why you’re never getting out. There is no future with us. There’s no role for you to play in my life. This– this is your life now. You are gonna spend the rest of it in a prison cell.

Brooke: Rj, I am touched that my happiness means so much to you.

Rj: I’m sorry. I’m not trying to put you on the spot or anything. I’m just curious. I’m sure steffy is too.

Steffy: No, no, no, no. I– I asked you if you were playing matchmaker. He’s not. Thankfully.

Rj: That is truE. I am not. I just wanna know if, you know, the door is completely closed on the future with dad or not.

Steffy: Okay. There’s my cue to leave.

Brooke: Oh, no. You don’t have to leave. This is your office. I don’t have anything to say about ridge that I wouldn’t share with you.

Steffy: I just feel as though this might be a private conversation between you and rj. Plus, I have to go see finn.

Brooke: Is everything okay?

Steffy: Yeah. I just– he had to take care of something and I just wanna make sure he’s okay. Yeah. All right. Bye.

Rj: Bye. Okay. We’re completely alone. You can be totally honest with me, okay? This whole pact that you made with taylor, do you ever wish that you hadn’t made it?

Taylor: Oh, my god. I– I think that you think that I am trying to take advantage of this situation.

Deacon: Are you? I mean, I thought you and brooke have this agreement.

Taylor: This agreement is why I’m having this conversation with you.

Deacon: Trying to convince me that brooke would give me another shot.

Taylor: Trying to remind you that you miss all the shots you don’t take.

Deacon: I’m just curious why you’re encouraging me.

Taylor: Because brooke’s my friend, and I care about her a lot. And– and she’s never without a guy, you know. I– I–

Deacon: Will you pinky swear that you’re not just using me to distract brooke so you can get to ridge? Come on.

Taylor: I care about ridge.

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Taylor: He is the father of my children, but this is not about ridge.

Deacon: Who is it about?

Taylor: Oh, my god. You. Deacon, you. About you living your best life. Getting everything you deserve.

Deacon: With brooke. Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-

Finn: No more letters. No more email.

Sheila: You don’t even have to respond. I– I’m– I’m hoping that over time you’re gonna understand, you’re gonna realize that I am not your enemy. There’s so much that I have to say. Finn, there’s so much that I want you to know. What– what I felt like when I– I found out that I was pregnant with you. The– the hopes that I had for your future. How I wanted to raise you.

Finn: I came– I came to tell you to leave me and my family alone. I won’t visit you again. This is the last time we’ll ever see each other.

Sheila: No. No, no, finn. Don’t do this to me.

Finn: You did this. You put yourself in this position by your own actions. So use this time, better yourself. Not for me. Prove to yourself that you can be a positive influence on the world, even from a prison cell. Goodbye.

Sheila: No.

Finn: Guard.

Sheila: No, no, no, no, no. Finn, I– I love you. I love you more than anything. This is not over.

Sheila: You’ll see me again. You will see me again.

Brooke: My agreement with taylor isn’t something that I regret.

Rj: And you wouldn’t change it if you could?

Brooke: You weren’t here when my marriage fell apart. Ridge left me to go back to taylor, and then he left her at the altar.

Rj: I know. I know that was– that was painful for you and for taylor. Look, I’m not trying to get you guys back together, mom. I love your independence. I wanna see you happy and satisfied with being on your own. I support that 100%. And if you and dad, you– you choose to move on and to live separate lives, I’ll support that too, but if and only if it’s what you want and you are choosing it for you because it’s gonna make you happy.

Brooke: I told you that I’m happy.

Rj: I know, but come on, mom. I’m your son. You can just talk to me. It’s between us. Don’t you still see dad as your soulmate? You know, your destiny?

Brooke: You know the answer to that, but I made a pact with taylor and I intend to keep it.

Deacon: Is this a therapy session or a pep talk?

Taylor: It is a thera-pep talk.

Deacon: A hybrid thing, okay.

Taylor: That’s exactly what it is. Do you want the psych 101 analysis?

Deacon: Well, you’re gonna give it to me anyway, so let’s hear it.

Taylor: You suffer from low self-esteem.

Deacon: Well, don’t hold back. Thanks.

Taylor: I’m not going to. No, but you know, you beat yourself up for the questionable choices that you’ve made in life or the women that you’ve been with.

Deacon: You don’t even wanna know.

Taylor: No, no, I don’T. But look how you’ve turned your life around. Ii giardino is– is booming. You’re the talk of the town.

Deacon: I mean, it is pretty incredible, isn’t it?

Taylor: It is incredible. And it’s probably unbelievable to you because–

Deacon: The– the low self-esteem.

Taylor: See? You’re a quick study. Wow. You know what? You deserve all of this. You’re– you’re a good guy now. You’re– you’re smart, funny. You’re business savvy. You’re not terrible to look at and you’re somebody that brooke has– has loved. You’re the father of one of her kids. Don’t doubt yourself. Stop wondering what you can bring to the table. You are the damn table.

Deacon: Well, I mean, nothing screams sexy like a table, so got that going for me. The table?

Taylor: Yes. [ Laughs ] This isn’t charmin! No wonder I don’t feel as clean.

Steffy: So how was it seeing sheila?

Finn: Like I expected. She thanked me for saving her life. Got all emotional about it. Told her I was just doing my job. But you know, she made it about herself and our relationship.

Steffy: I’m not surprised.

Finn: You don’t need to worry, okay? I made it absolutely clear that sheila will have no part of our life ever again. I just wanna… forget her. You know, like completely.

Sheila: I will be free again. With my son and his family.

Rj: Do you ever think about dad?

Brooke: Oh, yes. Yes. And I’m sure taylor does too. But we’re just not going to fight over him anymore. That is over.

Rj: And you’re– you’re happy about that?

Brooke: Oh, yes.

Rj: And if you and dad never get back together again, you’d be happy with that too? I’m– I’m– I’m not lobbying for a reunion. All I care about is how you feel, okay?

Brooke: My sweet boy. Always looking out for me.

Rj: So you are happy with this pact that you made with taylor?

Brooke: Mm-hmm. Yeah. It was a decision that we made together and it was time to move on. I wasn’t coerced or pressured into it. Taylor and I wanna put our friendship first. We wanna put faith in ourselves and in each other. I don’t have any reservations about that. I trust taylor completely.

Deacon: All right. I gotta admit it. You are pretty good at this.

Taylor: I am literally world-renowned, so. You know, I saw the way that your face lit up when you were talking about hope. How much you love her and how proud you are of her.

Deacon: I am so proud of her. I– I– she’s accomplished so much and I just– I can’t believe the woman that she’s become.

Taylor: And you don’t think she’s as proud of you?

Deacon: Yeah, no, I do. I– I– yeah. Yeah. And that means everything to me.

Taylor: Wouldn’t it be cool if you could– if you could put her family back together, you know? I mean, come on. Brooke was the– the great love of your life. You must still love her.

Deacon: I think I’m always gonna love her. I mean, we had some incredible times together. Some of the best of my life. You really think that I got a shot with brooke again?

Taylor: You know, I– I think I do. You’ve set yourself up here, you know, to– to hit the target, but you won’t actually know unless you take the shot. I mean, she– she was in love with you once. She obviously still cares about you. I don’t know, maybe you could just go over to– to visit hope and– and spend time as a family and– and see if there’s anything there.

Deacon: And that opens things up with ridge for you.

Taylor: Oh, god. Look, it’s like you said about brooke. I love ridge. I always will, but… you know, brooke and ridge, they– they’ve been trying to make this destiny thing work for a really long time and it’s never stuck. God, do I wish that things could have been different for ridge and me? Yeah, I do. But they’re not. That doesn’t mean that I’m trying to manipulate the situation for my benefit. What I saw earlier was a– was a sweet spark with you and brooke. I don’t know, maybe there’s an old flame burning in there. An opportunity to turn that into a– a wildfire. And, I don’t know, maybe– maybe have the life you’ve always dreamed about.

Deacon: With brooke?

Taylor: No, the lady at table eight. Yes. With brooke.

[ Relaxing music ]

Finn: Hey, how was drop off?

Steffy: I got kelly to school on time. Actually, two minutes early, so yay for me.

Finn: Nice. Um, amelia just left with hayes.

Steffy: Oh, a nice day at the, uh, aquarium. Big day for our little guy.

Finn: Yeah. It would’ve been fun to take him myself, but it’s looking like I’m having an extra jam-packed day.

Steffy: Why? What’s happening?

Finn: I’m going to prison.

Mike: So, where’s that beautiful smile? Not happy to see your old flame, mike?

Sheila: No offense, but when they told me I had a visitor, I– I just didn’t expect to see you again.

Mike: Surprise. I still got a few connections in here.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, I wish it had been my son or his father.

Mike: Finn, or the guy who knocked you up.

Sheila: His name is jack.

Mike: Hm. So he was the mysterious visitor you had a while back. So, what are you up to with jack?

Sheila: Nothing.

Eric: No, no, no, no, no, no. Give me that.

Rj: What?

Eric: You really are like your father in so many ways, you know?

Rj: Well, they don’t call me ridge jr. For nothing.

Eric: You really are a chip off the old block, aren’t you?

Rj: Thank you, granddad.

Eric: So what is it? What did you wanna see me about?

Rj: I wanna talk to you about my mom. I just wanna make sure that she’s really doing okay.

Taylor: Don’t worry. Hollis isn’t working today.

Brooke: Oh, I– no, I’m not worried.

Taylor: No?

Brooke: No.

Taylor: I didn’t want you to think that I was gonna, you know, try to set you guys up again.

Brooke: No, I didn’t– I didn’t think that. Look, hollis is a great guy. He’s sweet and he’s handsome and he’s very young, so I didn’t think it was gonna work out.

Taylor: I wasn’t expecting you guys to get married. I just wanted you to have some fun, you know.

Brooke: Okay.

Taylor: At least you, you know, you shared a nice kiss.

Brooke: Mm. Well, it’s a good kiss.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: I just think if I’m gonna be with somebody, it needs to be somebody that I know, somebody that I trust and somebody that I’ve had a history with.

Deacon: Okay. When I heard the bus boys talking about the two beautiful women at table five, of course, I had to come see it for myself, right? But i was not prepared for the absolute bellezza that’s before me.

[ Laughter ]

Brooke: Bellezza?

Taylor: Bellezza.

Deacon: You like that? Yeah. It’s italian.

Rj: I mean, you and mom have always been close. You’re one of her biggest supporters, right?

Eric: I adore your mother. I’m always, uh, I always have been one of her biggest fans.

Rj: Granddad, tell me this, you know, my parents have been broken up for a few months now and I know, you know, my mom’s out there trying to embrace the single life, but do you think that she’s really happy with that?

Deacon: You know, you two are become regulars. I like it.

Taylor: Well, the food is a ten outta ten. You’re killing it.

Deacon: Aw, thank you. And listen, all kidding aside, it really is wonderful having two beautiful, accomplished women like you in my humble establishment. And I still gotta tell you, it is kinda weird seeing the two of you getting along.

Brooke: Well, it was, uh, it was a surprise. Becoming friends with taylor, a wonderful surprise. You know, I can’t ever imagine us being rivals again.

Steffy: Don’t tell me.

Finn: Sheila’s been reaching out to me. She’s been sending me letters and emails from prison.

Steffy: She wants to see you?

Finn: Not just because I’m her son, because I’m her doctor.

Steffy: Oh my–

Mike: So what, sheila? You– you’re hoping finn’s daddy was gonna help spring you from the slammer?

Sheila: He’s an attorney, mike. A very influential criminal defense lawyer.

Mike: He must have some dough.

Sheila: Better. He’s got clout. Power.

Mike: Oh. So that’s why you’re putting on the lipstick, the perfume. You’re hoping to work your magic on the poor sap. Did it work?

Sheila: No.

Mike: Well, I guess you’re stuck in here with me, angel

Sheila: Not for long. Hmmm! Twix with cookie and cookie dough?

Rj: I can’t tell if my mom is living a life of her own choosing or not.

Eric: What do you mean?

Rj: Like, her and dad were going pretty steady until a lie tore them apart. And it was a lie that my mom had nothing to do with. And I know that that’s all been cleared up now, but they’re still apart.

Eric: Well, your mom took a very strong stand with ridge.

Rj: It’s– it’s nice that she and taylor are friends now and I’ve heard all about the pact that they’ve made and that’s great, but I’m left to wonder if my mom will ever truly be at peace with her life until she’s reunited with my dad.

Taylor: You think it’s strange seeing brooke and me as friends? What about you two? I’ve never known you two to get along so well.

Deacon: Brooke’s my queen. And she always will be.

Brooke: You could have any woman in here.

Deacon: They just want me for my pasta sauce and you know it. Besides, you and I, we have a very special connection. The– the best kind of bond any two people could share.

Brooke: Our sweet hope.

Deacon: She is pretty terrific.

Taylor: Yeah. You know, she is the best of both of you. You have a lot to be proud of.

Brooke: Yes, we do.

Deacon: We did one pretty incredible thing, didn’t we? We made an awesome human being.

Brooke: We certainly did.

Mike: Cheer up. Life can be worse. At least you still got me.

Sheila: I’m sorry. That’s really no consolation for being chained up like an animal.

Mike: Do the crime, you do the time. Think any of us convicts wanna be in here?

Sheila: Yeah. But I don’t deserve to be in prison, mike.

Mike: That’s what we all tell ourselves. Sheila, you gotta accept your fate. Sooner you do, the easier life will be, you know?

Sheila: No. You know, no. I don’T. And I won’t accept that this is my future. I never will. Now I– I need to be free. I need to connect with my son and my grandson again.

Steffy: So sheila wants you to visit her because you were her attending doctor for one night.

Finn: When she went into cardiac arrest.

Steffy: So then why doesn’t she want the entire hospital team or the prison doctor?

Finn: Oh, she’s requesting me personally.

Steffy: So it’s a blatant manipulation.

Finn: Without a doubt. Listen, sheila is nothing if not transparent.

Steffy: And you’re gonna go?

Finn: Well, I didn’t want to. I thought I was done with her. We’re never gonna have to see her again. But obviously, she’s under the illusion that it’s okay to contact me, have some type of relationship. Look, it’s time I pay sheila a visit and make it absolutely clear to her that she has no place in our life. I used to pre-rinse dishes cause my old detergent

Eric: Yes. I’ll have katie send that press packet out to you as, uh, soon as we hang up. Thanks for everything, klaus. Bye. Uh, sorry. Sorry about that.

Rj: Oh, no problem. You’re a busy man.

Eric: Never too busy for my grandson. And as far as you asking about brooke, I’m not sure I’m the person to ask about that. As she seems to be happy. Uh, but, uh, I think if you wanna talk to anybody about brooke, I think brooke is the person to ask.

Rj: You’re right. I just– I thought it couldn’t hurt to talk to you first.

Eric: I’m glad you did. Very impressed with how, uh, sensitive you are to your mother’s feelings. You’re a good soul, my boy. You always have been. Oh, look at this. My two favorite grandkids in the room at the same time.

Steffy: Aw! With our favorite granddad.

Eric: That’s me.

Steffy: Of course.

Eric: Well, your favorite granddad has to get to a meeting downtown. Sorry.

Steffy: Oh, okay. So, I get my, uh, little brother all to myself?

Eric: Yeah. Lucky you.

Steffy: Yeah.

Rj: Thank you for talking.

Eric: Yeah.

Rj: Appreciate it.

Eric: I’ll see you, buddy.

Rj: I’ll see you.

Steffy: Bye. So, did I see a someone going to the clubs last night?

Rj: Was my big sis spying on me?

Steffy: I saw it on your stories. Looked like fun.

Rj: It was.

Steffy: So, uh, how was your meeting with granddad? Seemed like I just walked in on something.

Rj: I don’t know. I was just actually talking to him about my mom. I’m– I’m a little worried about her.

Brooke: Oh, wait. Did hope tell you about her trip to san francisco?

Deacon: Yes. It sounds like they killed it, right?

Brooke: They scored a number of pre-orders.

Deacon: I mean, way to turn it around at the end, right? And– and– look, I know I’m very protective of hope, but props to your son too.

Taylor: Thank you. Yes. He’s just– he is so happy to be back designing with the team.

Brooke: I give them both a lot of credit. They worked really hard to overcome their past. And now, they have this really healthy working partnership.

Deacon: Well, you know, when– when hope puts her mind to something, there’s really nothing she can’t do.

Brooke: That’s true. She’s very determined. She’s been like that ever since she was a little girl.

Deacon: She gets that from her mother.

Brooke: Come on. Don’t sell yourself short. I mean, look around. Look at what you did. You had a vision and you’d brought it to life. That’s amazing. Ii giardino is a hit because of you.

Taylor: And there are no lies detected there. This place is packed for a reason.

Brooke: And I’ll bet that deacon sharpe is going to be the next hot los angeles restaurateur.

Deacon: Did I– I heard hot. Was that– it’s loud in here, but heard hot, yeah?

Brooke: Oh, yeah. I did say that.

Deacon: I like it.

Sheila: Guard! I– I have been sitting here forever. Is there a reason why you’re not taking me back to my cushy cell?

Guard: You have another visitor.

Sheila: I do. Well, who?

Sheila: My son, you came. Kayaking is my thing.

Sheila: You got my letters. I– I wrote you over and over since– since they’ve put me in here and… I started to lose faith that you would come and here you are.

Finn: Well, I wasn’t– I wasn’t sure I even wanted to or if I even should.

Sheila: There’s so much that I have to say to you. I’d be dead if you hadn’t shown me the compassion that you did.

Finn: I’m a doctor. Sheila, I was just doing my job.

Sheila: No. No, it was so much more than that. I– I flatlined. My heart stopped beating and you could have just left me there. Left me on that table to die.

Finn: I wouldn’t do that to my worst enemy.

Sheila: You fought for me. No one has ever fought for me before. But you did. I– I don’t know what– what you did or how, but you– you brought me back. And that has got to say something to the two of us, right? Mother and son. That the spiritual connection that we share. I mean, I gave you life and you gave me life. Thank you, son. I thank you for saving my life.

Steffy: You’re concerned about brooke?

Rj: It’s not con– I’m just– you know my mom. She’s– she’s always acting like everything’s fine and that she’s carefree, but… come on. She’s been through a lot recently, right?

Steffy: You’re not wrong about that.

Rj: I mean, you know the full story. You know everything.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. I lived it.

Rj: I know I was gone for all of the drama, but, you know, I don’t wanna bash thomas. He’s our brother.

Steffy: Hey, rj, you have a right to your feelings. Thomas did hurt brooke, and you’re protective of her. I love that about you.

Rj: I told thomas that I’m gonna give him the opportunity to prove that he’s actually changed.

Steffy: Well, that’s good. No, that’s really good. If it helps, I– I believe him.

Rj: I know you do, steffy. I hope you’re right.

Steffy: He’s– he’s just in therapy now and he’s working on himself and I really feel like he’s a change man.

Rj: Yeah. But that– that’s the key. How he’s acting now, that doesn’t erase everything that he put my mom through. How he completely upended her entire life.

Steffy: Because she’s not with dad.

Deacon: Hey, I hope you guys saved some room for dessert because chef just pulled out a batch of our world-famous wedding cookies. I mean, wedding cookies.

[ Phone chiming ] So good.

Brooke: I can’T. I’m stuffed.

Deacon: It’s good.

Taylor: God, it sounds–

Brooke: Oh.

Taylor: What is it?

Brooke: Uh, work wants me to come back and help pick out some fabrics, so.

Taylor: Oh.

Brooke: I’m sorry. I hate to cut this lunch short.

Taylor: No, it’s okay. Work is work. I got this. Yes. I’ll catch up with you later.

Brooke: Okay. Deacon, great to see you. And thanks again for such a wonderful meal. I gotta go.

Deacon: Well, I hate to see you go, but I’d love to watch you leave. I know. Cheesy, right? I’ve been waiting to try that one out. Seriously, come back soon. Okay? Please?

Brooke: Oh, I most certainly will.

Deacon: Okay.

Taylor: Okay. Okay. Deacon, you need to sit.

Deacon: I’m– I’m sorry that– I– I know that was boring for you to listen to us talking about our daughter and our history.

Taylor: No. No, it wasn’t– it wasn’t boring. It was sweet and fascinating. You know, that– that brooke and I have– have become very close, right?

Deacon: I’ve seen that.

Taylor: Yeah. And I– I feel like– I– I feel like I know her finally, you know. For the first time ever, she respects you, admires you. She knows you.

Deacon: I mean, brooke’s approval means a great deal to me. It really does. She doesn’t judge me for being a screw-up back in the day.

Taylor: Well, of course not. There’s a– there’s a reason that the two of you got together all those years ago. Created hope together.

Deacon: Okay. I see the little hamster wheel going on. What are you getting at here?

Taylor: You know, that brooke and I made a– a pact.

Deacon: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Yeah. Put forrester in time out.

Taylor: Well, you know, it’s more about, you know, looking out for each other and– and putting our friendship first.

Deacon: I think that’s a great idea. I’m just not getting what it has to do with me.

Taylor: Well, you’ve made some– some huge strides in your life recently.

Deacon: I’d like to think so.

Taylor: And brooke sees that. I know she does. She respects that. What if– what if the timing is– is– is just right. You know, especially now that– now that ridge is out of the picture?

Deacon: And?

Taylor: I don’t know. I’m just thinking that this could be– this could be a opportunity, if you will, mr. Sharpe. You know, to have a shot at a life…

Deacon: With brooke.

Taylor: With brooke.

Finn: Liam should be concerned about hope. What do you mean?

Steffy: I know you think I’m overreacting, but… I’ve seen some things, and then this trip comes up.

Finn: The meeting in san francisco is for hope for the future. It’s work-related.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. They almost got stuck there, overnight.

Finn: But that’s not thomas’s fault or hope’S.

Steffy: Finn, if they had to spend the night… I was concerned about what could happen.

Finn: But not because of your brother? So, you’re not worried about thomas? You’re worried about hope?

Steffy: Yeah.

Hope: Well, thank you. I didn’t realize how much I needed that.

Thomas: Yeah, just let me know if it starts bugging you again.

Hope: [ Clears throat ] Well, we’ll probably be landing soon, so we should get ready. Oh, sorry.

Thomas: There’s nothing to be sorry about.

Hope: I didn’t mean to do that. [ Clears throat ]

Thomas: Hey,

Hope: Mm.

Thomas: Everything’s gonna be all right.

Finn: Liam shouldn’t be concerned about thomas, it’s hope he needs to worry about? I– what could possibly even make you think that?

Steffy: Okay, this has to be just between us.

Finn: Yeah, of course.

Steffy: Nobody can know.

Finn: Babe, who am I even gonna tell? I’m not exactly gossiping about the fashion industry in between patients.

Steffy: I– I get that. I just don’t want the wrong person finding out.

Finn: Honey, I– okay. I promise I’m not gonna tell a soul.

Steffy: Uh, I walked in on something. Hope and thomas. It was a– it was an intimate moment. Eye contact, touching.

Finn: Oh, my god. So, what– thomas was touching hope? He was coming on to her?

Steffy: No, it was the other way around.

Finn: Wait, what?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Hope was coming on to thomas?

Thomas: Look, hope, I know just how devoted you are to liam and your whole family.

Hope: Well, the thing is, I grew up watching my mom–

Thomas: Hey, no, no, no, stop. Stop doing that. You’re not your mother, okay? You’re gonna be with liam for the rest of your life.

Trying vapes

to quit smoking

Finn: So, you said touching?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Okay, so, what does that mean exactly? Like, what did you witness between hope and thomas? Was– I mean, it was at the office. It couldn’t have been that bad. We’re not talking about something, like, completely inappropriate? Are we?

Steffy: They were fully clothed. But, yeah, it was inappropriate.

Finn: And they didn’t know you were there?

Steffy: Not at the time. I wasn’t eavesdropping or anything. I– I was walking back into the office when I overheard hope talking to thomas about how in sync they are. And how there was no limit to how far they could take hope for the future.

Finn: It seems pretty tame. I mean, maybe he was feeling down, he just needed a pep talk.

Steffy: No, no, there was– there was more to it, more to her. It was the way she looked at him, touching his hands. There was nothing tame about that. Gosh, hope was caressing my brother’s hands, gazing into his eyes and not in the way a coworker or a co-parent should. No, she was gazing with desire.

Finn: Desire? Steffy. Come on.

Steffy: It’s– it’s true. She wasn’t looking at him like a friend, that she, like, appreciated him. I know when a woman wants a man, finn.

Finn: Well, you think that hope wants– I just– I’m– I’m sorry, I can’t believe this. This is–

Steffy: I couldn’t believe it either. That’s why I had to confront her.

Finn: You confronted her?

Steffy: Yes, of course I did. My brother is doing so well. There is no way I’m letting hope screw this up for him.

Thomas: Hey, carter.

Carter: Hey.

Thomas: I didn’t realize anybody would still be here.

Carter: Yeah, just finishing up a few things. So, san francisco.

Thomas: Uh-huh.

Carter: Huge success, huh?

Thomas: Yeah, you know, hope crushed it per usual.

Carter: I can tell from all the orders pouring in.

Thomas: Really? That quick, huh?

Carter: Initial orders and the buyers indicated there’s more to come.

Thomas: You know, I love it when a plan comes together.

Carter: Yeah. Well, almost together. I heard about the little drama that happened after the meeting between you and hope.

Hope: Um, what’s all this?

Liam: Hey, one sec. Hi. Yeah, we’re, uh– we’re celebrating. Yeah.

Hope: Yeah. My, um– my successful meeting?

Liam: Yeah. Also selfishly, I’m glad you weren’t forced to spend the night in san francisco. You know?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Me too.

[ Liam laughing ]

Liam: Um, li– uh, listen, I– I get that you– you trust thomas. And– and I understand that at this point. It’s– it’s one thing for you guys to have to work long hours at the office. But, you know, being alone together in another city is just a bit much for me.

Hope: I know. No, no, no, I totally– I totally get that. But, you know, even if we did have to stay, he would have been in his hotel room. I would have been in mine, and– and we probably would’ve barely even seen each other.

Liam: Yeah. No, yeah. I mean, unless– I mean, I wouldn’t put it past him to, like, ask if you wanted to take a stroll or, like, see the city. Night out on the town. Something– it doesn’t matter because it didn’t happen and for that, I’m grateful. So, moving on.

Hope: Yeah, I am grateful for that, too.

Liam: Cool. Um, I guess maybe as a formality, I should ask, like, did he try anything?

Hope: No.

Liam: No. You promise? Great. Nothing. So, nothing. Nothing at all happened. Eggland’s best.

Thomas: Drama?

Carter: The plane. You and hope almost didn’t make it home.

Thomas: Oh, yeah, that was– that, yeah, was dramatic.

Carter: Yeah, hope must have been freaking out. I mean, you, you probably wouldn’t have minded an extended vacation but hope was probably desperate to get back to liam.

Thomas: Definitely.

Carter: That’s what we hope for, right? Liam’s crazy about her and hope, completely devoted to him.

Thomas: Yeah. She– she certainly is.

Finn: Please tell me you didn’t let things get out of hand?

Steffy: I was a protective sister. I didn’t go into attack mode… ish. She did a pretty good job convincing me that she doesn’t have feelings for– for thomas.

Finn: Okay, then, well, like, what’s the concern there?

Steffy: I said pretty good job. She may believe what she’s saying, but I’m not sure I do.

Finn: Oh, so are you suggesting that she doesn’t even realize that she’s flirting with thomas? Like, not consciously?

Steffy: I don’t know. I don’t know. Okay, let’s– let’s think about it. All these years, thomas has been fawning over hope. He just adored her for so long and just like that, it– it goes away. Maybe hope’s not used to it. Maybe– maybe it bruised her ego a bit. Thomas is in a good, healthy place. So, if she’s flirting with thomas, consciously or not, it’s awful. You just don’t flirt with someone who used to be obsessed with you.

Finn: I don’t disagree. It’s just– so, what did hope say for herself?

Steffy: She said that my imagination was running wild.

Finn: Well, it could be, right?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, it could. So, I asked her point blank if she had feelings for thomas.

Finn: And?

Steffy: She said it’s ridiculous.

Finn: Okay, so was there any part of you that believes her? Like, could there be a world where hope is telling the truth?

Liam: So, that’s cool. Nothing happened, thomas didn’t try anything, huh?

Hope: Oh, well, I’ll tell you what did happen. We had a meeting with the buyers and they were super, super impressed.

Liam: Well, of course, they were. That’s fantastic news. I am so happy for you.

Hope: I mean, it really is. I don’t think it could have gone any better.

Liam: Well–

Hope: Actually, that is not true. I think it would have been much better if you were there. I–

Liam: Aw.

Hope: I really missed you.

Liam: Hmm. Wow.

Hope: Mm.

Liam: Where’s that coming from?

Hope: Oh, I just, you know, don’t want you to forget how much I love and appreciate you.

Liam: I love and appreciate you, too. Things are good. I mean, your line is coming back. No surprise there. The buyers loved your pitch. No surprise there. Shoot, the most stressful part of the trip was probably after.

Hope: After?

Liam: What happened after. The mechanical issues on the plane. ‘Cause, you know, nobody likes being stuck waiting for a flight, you know?

Hope: No, not at all.

Liam: Well, I’m sure it will come as a great shock to you that I’m really happy you didn’t have to spend the night in san francisco with thomas.

Hope: Mm. Yeah, me, too. When you have chronic kidney disease.

Thomas: You getting out of here finally?

Carter: Yeah, late dinner plans with katie. I can’t wait to tell her all the works we’ll have on our plate tomorrow thanks to your successful trip.

Thomas: Better than the alternative, though, right?

Carter: Yeah, that is for sure. Nice work today, thomas. You and hope, you proved it again.

Thomas: Proved what?

Carter: What an amazing team you are.

Steffy: I want to believe hope. I do. So, the last person that you’d think that she’d be attracted to is, like, a bad boy.

Finn: Well, not that thomas is. I mean, not anymore.

Steffy: No, I mean, he’s– he’s made changes. We all see that. Hope sees that. But I think– I think hope will always see thomas as the ultimate bad boy.

Finn: Like some hidden fantasy of hers? I mean, yeah, it’s not that unbelievable. And growing up with brooke logan as your mother… I mean, at least from the stories that you’ve told me, I mean, I can only imagine the example that was being set.

Steffy: That’s true. And I… I did tell hope that I thought she was turning into brooke.

Finn: [ Chuckles ] Really?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. But honestly, I– I really don’t think hope is anything like brooke. She’s the complete opposite.

Finn: So, does that mean you’re gonna take her at her word? You’re gonna choose to believe that she doesn’t have feelings for thomas?

Steffy: Okay. I will try to lean toward believing hope, but I’m gonna be watching her. And if she crosses any lines with thomas, first off, that would be just awful if she did that to liaM. Secondly, that would undermine all the progress thomas has made. Everything is going so well in our family and I don’t want– I do not want hope to ruin that for us.

Hope: My principles

and my morals,

they matter to me.


Thomas: No, wait, hey, hey,

hey, hold on, hold on.


You are the most principled

and– and moral person

I’ve ever met.

You’re nothing like

your mother. [ Scoffs ]

And I’ve watched you

my entire life.

You– you’re– you’re like one

of the most incredible people

ever, and you love your family.

You always want to be with liam

and– and nothing is gonna

come between you two.

Liam: I mean, the whole thomas situation, you guys working late nights together and going on trips together now, it– it drives me nuts. That’s not a secret. I can admit that. What I don’t want is for it to affect our relationship. I don’t want it to– to drive a wedge in our marriage. And even if that did happen, that wouldn’t be on you. I– I trust you completely. It– it’s thomas that historically I have trust issues with.

Hope: Well, I don’t think you need to worry about thomas. He’s been professional and he knows how I feel about you and our family and this life that we’ve built together.

Liam: Yeah. I mean, even steffy said a lot of the same stuff.

Hope: Wait, um, so, you talked to steffy about this?

Liam: Yeah. I mean, she’s his sister. I figured if anyone would have some insight into his, uh, consciousness, it’d be her.

Hope: And what did she say?

Liam: Kinda just what you did. Like, that he’s– he’s not a threat to my marriage.

Hope: That’s it?

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Okay.

Liam: Okay.

Hope: Okay.

[ Clears throat ]

Steffy: I saw you, hope.

Hope: Saw?

Steffy: What I didn’t know,

which I– I never would have

thought is that it would–

it would be you.

Hope: Me?

Steffy: You were looking

right in thomas’s eyes,

laying it on pretty thick.

Hope: All right,

it is not what you think–

Steffy: I know what I saw.

I will not

let you derail thomas.

I will not allow you

or anyone else to set him back.

Do you hear me?

So, I’m gonna ask you

and ask you once.

Do you have feelings

for thomas?

[ Laughs ]

Thomas: Here. Come here.

[ Hope laughing ]

Hope: Liam?

Liam: Mm-hmm?

Hope: I mean, you– you know how much I love you, right?

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Okay, ’cause I don’t– I don’t ever want you to doubt that.

Liam: I won’T.

Hope: Okay. You promise?

Liam: Yeah, I promise.

Liam: Do you think maybe, uh,ut t with the forrester pilot again just to see, like, if you know, like there’s like an update or something.

Steffy: It hasn’t been that long since I spoke to him. He said he would get back to me once the repairs are done. And he said it’s– it doesn’t look like it’s gonna be fixed tonight, so.

Liam: Dude, it was supposed to be just like a quick trip. There and back, they go, they have the meeting and then they’re on a flight back to L.A.

Steffy: Okay, but who knew that the forrester jet would have mechanical problems?

Liam: I know. She was supposed to be home by now and now it looks like she’s gonna spend the night there with him?

Steffy: Okay, liam, I know it’s not ideal, but it’s not the end of the world.

Liam: If thomas behaves himself.

Steffy: There’s no reason to think he won’T.

Liam: I don’t know, could be a bit of a temptation. Your brother, my wife. Together, hundreds of miles away alone for the night. I don’t even like the fact that my mind is going there, but it’s going there and I have to admit it and I just, you know, like there’s a lot– there’s so many things I can forgive but not that, you know, never, never that.

Thomas: You are the most principled and– and moral person I’ve ever met. You’re nothing like your mother. You love your family. You always wanna be with liam and– and nothing is gonna come between you two.

Hope: Thank you. Thank you. Yeah.

Thomas: [ Laughs ] Here.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Heartbeat thumping ]

Liam: I should have seen this coming.

Steffy: No one could have predicted that the jet would break down.

Liam: Not the– not the jet breaking down, but I– I could have predicted that things like this would start to happen if hope brought thomas back to work on her line.

Steffy: What are you talking about?

Liam: There’s always gonna be business trips. There’s always gonna be these special, personal appearances that hope has to make to promote her line. I mean, it’s naive to think that thomas wouldn’t want to tag along every chance he gets.

Steffy: Whoa, liam. That’s not what happened. The buyers wanted to see thomas. He didn’t just horn in to be around hope.

Liam: That– I’m not saying that’s what happened this time. I’m saying– let’s say his obsession with hope kicks in again. Okay, this is– this is exactly the kind of opportunity that he could seize upon. They’re in san francisco.

Steffy: Okay, liam, I am telling you, thomas is not gonna be an issue when it comes to hope.

Liam: You really believe that?

Steffy: I really believe that.

Liam: So, I have– I have nothing to worry about? Nothing at all.

Steffy: Hope, tell me the truth. You have feelings for him.

[ Heart beating ]

[ Phone chiming ]

Hope: It’s trevor.

Thomas: Okay.

Hope: Hi. Hi. Any news?

Trevor: Yes. Good news. We were finally able to get all the mechanical issues fixed.

Hope: Okay. So, the jet’s all set to go?

Trevor: I’m sorry about the delay, but we are a go. And hope? Did you hear me? As soon as you get to the airport, we’ll be ready to go.

Hope: Yes. Okay. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thomas and I will be there soon. Special k is oven-toasted to crisp perfection

Steffy: Okay. Okay. I have tried to reassure you every way I know how about my brother, but I really don’t know what else I can say.

Liam: I know. I know. Hey, I do have a certain psychiatrist you would totally get along with because taylor had plenty to say about how thomas has changed and he’s not the same person. He’s been doing work on himself and that change is real and lasting and important.

Steffy: Yeah? Did my mom– did she sway you?

[ Blows raspberry ]

Liam: No, she didn’t sway me. But I do understand why she thinks I’m the one being unreasonable.

Steffy: Look, my mom respects you. And you’re right to feel the way that you do.

Liam: Listen, I get it. It’s like you, your mom, your dad, your whole family, even hope. I mean, like literally everybody thinks I just need to get over myself and accept that thomas has changed.

Steffy: Thomas is just trying to be his best self. New and improved thomas forrester. There’s no hint of him backsliding.

Liam: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: I don’t believe he’s gonna initiate anything.

Liam: Well, he better not because he’s already created a lot of friction in my marriage and I’m not gonna let anything come between us. Especially not him.

Hope: So, the jet’s ready to go. So, we should get ready to head to the airport.

Thomas: Sure. Um, do you wanna call liam? I’m sure he’ll be relieved knowing you’ll be home tonight.

Hope: Right, yeah. Of course.

[ Clears throat ]

[ Phone ringing ]

[ Phone beeps ]

Liam: Hey, you okay?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah. The pilot just called and they fixed the jet.

Liam: Are you flying home tonight?

Hope: Yep.

Liam: Good.

Hope: Good. I’m anxious to get home.

Liam: Yeah. No kidding. It’s– it’s been, what? Less than a day and it just feels like so much longer than that.

Hope: Well, I love you and I can’t wait to be in your arms again.

Liam: I like the sound of that. Um… I love you too. Uh… be safe and I’ll see you soon.

Steffy: They’re on their way back?

Liam: Yeah. So that’s– hey! Don’t have to have that in my head for the rest of the night. Hopefully, right?

Steffy: It’s great. I’m telling you, thomas is doing the work as a designer, as a co-parent, for douglas. Thomas isn’t the one you should be concerned about.

Steffy: He has his hat on straight.

Liam: I really wanna believe that.

Thomas: All right, I texted the front desk and cancelled that other room. Got everything?

Hope: I think so. You?

Thomas: Think so.

Hope: Good, I’m glad we were able to go home tonight.

Thomas: Home to your husband and family. Diabetes can serve up a lot of questions,

Finn: You– you relax. I already put the kids down. I whipped up a light dinner, the two of us and we can eat after you–

Steffy: Thank you.

Finn: Unwind.

Steffy: What did I do to deserve being married to such an incredible husband? Really?

Finn: I’m sure you’ll show your appreciation later.

Steffy: Oh, you best believe it.

Finn: So your text said you were at spencer publications?

Steffy: Yeah, I– I needed to talk to liam.

Finn: About eye on fashion?

Steffy: No, about um, hope and thomas. I was just… checking in on him about their business trip to san francisco.

Finn: Oh, yeah. Is liam doing any better with that? He didn’t seem too thrilled when it came up. Yeah, he was even less than thrilled when hope called and said that she wasn’t gonna make it back tonight.

Finn: What do you mean? There was something wrong with the jet. Some kind of like malfunction and they weren’t sure if they’re gonna be able to fix it and– anyways, it looked like hope and thomas were gonna spend the night in san francisco.

Finn: Wow. Wait. Oh, so, your brother and hope alone together overnight.

[ Chuckles ] I can only imagine how liam reacted to that.

[ Steffy sighs ] We all know he doesn’t trust your brother.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s putting it mildly. Liam can’t get past everything that thomas has done. He keeps thinking that thomas is going to revert to his old ways.

Finn: So, did they make it back to L.A. At least?

Steffy: Uh, yeah, they’re– the plane’s fixed and they’re on their way now.

Finn: Okay, good. So no harm, no foul, liam can relax.

Steffy: Yeah. Um, actually, there’s more.

Finn: Concerning liam and thomas?

Steffy? No. Concerning hope.

Wyatt: I mean, should we tell dad about the final numbers? What do you think he’s gonna say? You know, I know he said he liked the company and that he wanted us to pull the trigger and– and you know, lock it in and everything. It’s just, I don’t know. Are we moving too fast? I mean, are we not seeing something here? Are we overlooking anything that could be like a problem for the company later on? I’m just not– I don’t know. I’m freaking out here. Liam?

Liam: Yo.

Wyatt: Hey!

Liam: Hey.

Wyatt: I could use your feedback here. Is there something we’re overlooking that could come back and bite us in the butt later?

Liam: Um, yeah. I just, um– I don’t see anything. Really. Like– what are you doing?

Wyatt: This isn’t even the document I’m talking about right now! This is the page that we’re on. Can you please keep up? I’m gonna have to hold you down and force feed you red meat.

Liam: It’s kind of a funny joke.

Wyatt: Okay.

Liam: What– what do you, why are you getting all heavy?

Wyatt: What is it?

Liam: There’s not– what?

Wyatt: What is it? What’s got you distracted right now?

Liam: Well–

Wyatt: You can tell me because I’ll just give you some sage brotherly advice like I always do and then we can get back to our little $80 million acquisition, huh? What do you think about that? What? Is it hope and thomas again? Are they spending late nights at the office or something? This is getting really old–

Liam: They’re not at the office. They’re not even in town.

Wyatt: Wait, what?

Liam: Yeah, thomas and my wife are in san francisco together right now.

Trevor: Apologies again for the delay.

Hope: Oh, no, it’s totally okay, trevor. We understand.

Thomas: Yeah, these things happen sometimes. It’s nobody’s fault.

Hope: We’re just grateful that the issue’s been fixed and we can head home.

Trevor: Okay. Well, we’ll be in the air momentarily and I promise I will get you both home safely, asap. I can imagine you can’t wait to see your families, right?

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: Thank you.

Thomas: Thanks. So…

Hope: So.

Thomas: Boss. Congratulations on a very, very successful trip. I mean, the buyers could not have been more impressed.

Hope: Well, I think there’s no denying what they said. Which is that we make a pretty impressive team. Partial response:

Wyatt: Well, look, all’s well, that ends well, right? The jet’s fixed. Hope will be back tonight, probably in time to put the kids to bed and you for that matter.

Liam: Yeah, well, here’s hoping.

Wyatt: Look, man, I know this is your worst nightmare here. Your wife being stranded in another city with the guy who’s literally been obsessing over her for several years.

Liam: Yeah. No, I know. But, well, thankfully, uh, he behaved himself and didn’t take advantage, so. Yay.

Wyatt: That’s good. You know, that for sure? I never know anything for sure, but… hope would have told me if he’d tried anything.

Wyatt: Well, I bet he was tempted though, right?

Liam: Yeah, his sister would beg to differ.

Wyatt: Steffy. What does she have to do with it?

Liam: Sorry, she was– she was here earlier and you know, obviously she’s team thomas all the way, you know.

Wyatt: Why? Because they’re family?

Liam: [ Laughs ] No. I mean, yeah, they’re family and that makes a difference. But no, she’s always been pretty, uh, I don’t know, she’s got a good read on thomas. She’s always objective. She– she doesn’t make excuses for his behavior. She calls him out. And so, it’s kind of different. Like when steffy says that he’s a changed man–

Wyatt: You’ve gotta believe her?

Liam: I was gonna say I feel even more alone. But…

Finn: You know, we don’t have to talk about hope or thomas or liam when we’re alone like this together. We get such little time to ourselves as it is. But I can see you’re still distracted. So, lay it on me. What is it? Something about hope you said?

Steffy: Actually, liam. Something he said.

Finn: What, when you two were together earlier?

Steffy: Yeah. He said if– if hope ever crossed the line with thomas, he wouldn’t be able to forgive her.

Finn: Okay. Yeah, well, I get where liam is coming from, but that’s not gonna be an issue, right? ‘Cause you trust your brother, he’s not gonna get fixated on hope again. So, this is all– wait, what is it? Babe? What aren’t you telling me? What is it?

Steffy: What I didn’t say to liam is that… it’s not thomas he should be concerned about. It’s hope.

Thomas: You okay?

Hope: Yeah, it’s just my neck. It’s seizing up. I think it’s from the stress of everything.

Thomas: Oh, yeah, I get that all the time. You’re feeling it up here, but it’s actually right here. Yeah. You feel that knot?

Hope: Yeah.

[ Heart beating ]

[ Speaker beeping ]

Trevor: We’ll be starting our descent soon. Please prepare for landing.

Thomas: Hey, you heard him. Soon, hope. You’ll be home soon.

Liam: Yeah, that’s great. ‘Cause th– right, ’cause those were all my concerns. So, um… tell you what. Why– why don’t I have legal just draw up the contract tonight, and then tomorrow, I’ll have a– a messenger bring you a hard copy. Yeah. Thanks a lot. Bye-bye. Well, hello, there. So much prettier than wyatt.

Steffy: Are you busy?

Liam: Uh, no, that was– that was my last call for the day. What are you doin’ here?

Steffy: I forgot to give you kelly’s wristband, she wears it for all her soccer games and bailey has the same one, and they’re at the stage where they like to match.

Liam: Yep. Yep. Aww, that’s cute. I could have picked this up on my way home, you didn’t have to come all the way here, though.

Steffy: I– I just– I just wanted to check in with you, see if you heard anything from hope and thomas about their business trip to san francisco.

Hope: So as you can see, we are very excited about this collection.

Thomas: Well, I, for one, believe in staying a step ahead of the clientele, and giving them what they didn’t know they needed.

Hope: And we hope that we have made believers out of you.

Buyer #1: Indeed. It was a convincing presentation of a beautiful collection.

Buyer #2: Some of the best work hope for the future has ever produced.

Hope: Well, we– we like to think so.

Thomas: Yeah.

Buyer #1: You two make an incredible team.

Buyer #2: We’re very happy you’re back, spearheading the line.

Hope: I couldn’t agree more.

Liam: You’re asking me if I have any information on a forrester meeting? Aren’t you the ceo?

Steffy: That is true, but I just thought you may have heard from hope before me.

Liam: Uh, no.

[ Phone chiming ]

Liam: Oh? Speaking of.

Steffy: It’s hope?

Liam: Mm-hmm. “The meeting just wrapped, went great!” Exclamation point. “Thomas and I are heading to the jet soon. We will be on our way home. Love you.” Cool. Well, that’s best-case-scenario, right? Success and she’s outta there.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I’m glad to hear it.

Liam: Hmm.

Steffy: Not just because the pitch went well, but also, uh, hope and thomas flying out together was a little concerning for you.

Liam: Whatever. She’s on her way home now, it’s all I care about.

Thomas: Have a good one.

Buyer #1: Thank you.

Hope: Did that go as well as I think it did?

Thomas: It couldn’t have gone better.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. We– were amazing. You were amazing. All that forrester charm?

Thomas: You were, uh, awesome! You were compelling, you were passionate. You’re irresistible. I mean, look, I– I– I think we just expanded our reach dramatically.

Hope: I know. I know, I’m feeling pretty good about it. Oh, thomas, thank you. Thank you again. I mean, I– I’ve seen all the hard work that you’ve put into the designs and now this presentation, it just– it doesn’t go unnoticed.

Thomas: Thank you for giving me a chance to actually prove myself.

[ Phone chiming ]

Hope: Uh… oh, it’s the pilot.

Thomas: Oh, I thought he was– we were supposed to call him, right?

Hope: Um, hey, trevor. You– you actually have both of us here, and good timing, and we just finished up with the meeting.

Thomas: Hey.

Trevor: Apologies, but I’m afraid we’re having some mechanical issues.

Crew’s doing everything

they can, but… there’s a chance that we might not get out tonight. I’ll keep you posted.

[ Phone beeps ]

[ Thomas sighing ]

Hope: Come on.

Thomas: I know. Look, I– I know you want to get home to liam, I just… feel terrible. No two bodies are the same.

Hope: I can’t believe this. I mean, of course! Of course the jet is having mechanical issues when I happen to be here with you. I mean, liam is going to love this.

Thomas: Okay, but it’s a non-issue if I can get you on a commercial flight, right?

Hope: Yeah, except I don’t see any that are available and you’ve been on hold forever, and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Thomas: We’ll know soon enough.

Hope: [ Sighs ] Thank you, for trying to help me get home.

Thomas: You’re welcome. But– but don’t worry about this, I know that you want to get home to liam and the family, but… think about what we just did today. I mean, we were supposed to impress those buyers, and we did, and that’s great for the line.

Hope: Oh, yeah. Hell yeah, we did.

[ Both laughing ]

Thomas: It’s amazing teamwork.

Hope: Yeah, it was almost like we were finishing each other’s sentences.

Thomas: Yeah, like one mind and two voices. It’s weird.

Hope: Oh, I don’t know. I was– I was having so much fun, I forgot to be nervous.

Thomas: Oh. You don’t have to be. Not when I’m around. Yeah, I’m here. What does that mean? All right, yeah. Thank you very much. Okay. Okay, so, um, bad news. Uh, by the time you got to the airport, there’s only one more flight out tonight, and it’s fully booked.

Hope: Dammit!

Thomas: I know, I’m sorry.

Hope: No, no, it is fine, it is no one’s fault, it’s just, I had already texted liam after the meeting that I would be home soon, and that’s what he will be expecting. Me, walking through the door, not spending the night here with you. Oh, this isn’t good.

Steffy: Look, I– I get why you’re wary of thomas. His past, and I understand why you don’t like the idea of hope and thomas jetting off together.

Liam: I mean, yeah. From where I’m sittin’, it’s just a recipe for disaster, but who am I kidding? I don’t like them together in any context, so–

Steffy: Look, I don’t know how many times I need to reassure you. But thomas has changed. He’s focused on work. Saving hope for the future with designs only he can create. And they make a fantastic team. I think you need to think about that. Be a little thankful.

Liam: Ah– well, meeting’s over and hope’s on her way home, and I’m definitely thankful for that, so–

[ Phone ringing ] Aha. Hey, you.

Congratulations on the meeting.

Can’t say I’m surprised.

Uh, any time you set your mind to something, you’re irresistible, so buyers never stood a chance. Proud of you.

Hope: Thanks.

Liam: So… yeah, I can’t wait for you to get home so we can celebrate properly.

Hope: Um, well, me– me too, but unfortunately, there is a bit of a problem.

Liam: I, uh– I thought that the buyers loved it.

Hope: The jet is having mechanical issues.

Liam: Oh. Uh, all right. Well, hey. It’s a good thing you figured that out when you’re still on the ground. Right? ‘Cause, ‘um… uh, so what, you just gonna fly commercial, or…

Hope: Well, see, that’s the thing. By the time I get to the airport, there’s only one flight out, and it’s already fully booked.

Liam: Oh. Um… so what are you saying exactly? Just, are you– you’re stuck, you’re gonna be spending the night in san francisco with thomas?


Hope: Well, hopefully they will be able to fix the problem, and then we can make it home tonight.

The pilot is going

to keep us updated.

But, um, yes, it is possible that thomas and I will have to stay in san francisco overnight.

Liam: Seriously?

Hope: I know. I know. I know. But fingers crossed, hopefully I will be able to make it home tonight, still, somehow. I just– I really, really want to see you and the kids. Um, but I– I do have to get going. Um, but I will– I will keep you posted. Okay? I love you, liam.

Liam: Yeah, I love you, too.

Steffy: Hope and thomas are spending the night in san francisco?

Thomas: Okay. Uh, while you were talking to liam, I decided to go ahead and order us some room service.

Hope: Oh, good call. I am starving.

Thomas: Yeah, that, uh, pitch meeting kind of worked up an appetite. Niçoise salad, right?

Hope: [ Laughs ] Yep. You know me so well.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: Thank you.

Thomas: I’m sorry you have to be here. Was liam upset?

Hope: If I just hadn’t texted him I would be home soon, then I wouldn’t have set that expectation. Then it wouldn’t look so bad, and then– you know what? No. We had a great day here, and I don’t want to ruin that, so I am going to think positively and not stress, and the jet is going to be fixed. And in the meantime, all I can do is wait, so that is what I am going to try to do.

Thomas: Waiting. Not really my strong suit.

Hope: [ Laughs ] Oh, tell me about it.

[ Both laughing ] Well, hey, at least it’s good company.

Thomas: Yeah. You’re being a really good sport about all of this.

Hope: Well, so are you.

Thomas: Yeah, this isn’t that terrible for me. I get a night in san francisco. I can go grab some sushi, and then head back to the hotel and keep working. You need to get home to your fam–

Hope: Hey. Hey hey. No, no, no. No more work for you. You did enough today. All right? So, if– if we are actually stuck here, then I say we should just enjoy that dinner that you ordered for us, and just… bask in the glory of our success.

Thomas: Okay. Yeah. That’s actually a really good idea. I’m gonna go ahead and order myself a room, then. Just in case.

Liam: Isn’t it so funny how I never really liked the idea of hope and thomas going on a trip together?

Steffy: Hey, there’s still a chance they could– they could get home tonight.

Liam: I know, but the later it gets, the less I like the odds, and just… the thought of hope and thomas alone together overnight, it– I said, I see it

Steffy: Yeah, okay. Keep me posted. Thanks. Still workin’ on the mechanical issue, and pilot says it might not be fixed tonight, so yeah, hope and thomas might be spending the night in san francisco.

Liam: Well, I, for one, think that’s great. I think it’s so great, and with my luck, the hotel will be almost completely booked up, and thomas will be chivalrous enough to offer to share his room.

Steffy: Oh, liam, stop. You know that’s not gonna happen. And I know that you– you have reason to doubt him because of what happened in the past. I understand.

Liam: Yeah, but you– you– you think I should leave it in the past and give him the same chance everybody else is.

Steffy: I just think you need to be open to it. Give thomas the benefit of the doubt. Save you some grief.

Liam: [ Laughs ] That’s– actually, that’s probably true. It would save me some grief. It’s just that I’ve seen this too many times before. It’s like thomas does change… for a second. And then he’s back to scheming.

Steffy: Okay, but you have to admit, hope and thomas working together right now, it’s not the horror show you’ve been worried about.

Liam: No, it’s not. Yet. I mean, when the possibility first arose, I was just like… I was begging hope, I was begging her not to work with him, and she– she considered it, and she agreed with me, and I thought the issue was settled, and then the very next day, she changed her mind and she hired him.

Steffy: Yeah, that must hurt.

Liam: Uh, yeah. I mean, I was pretty convinced that was like the end of all peace and harmony in our household. It was like– it was like we just took opposite corners of the ring, you know? And– and then there’s thomas, right there in the middle, driving a wedge between us. And the truth is, hope has been pretty amazing, though. She’s been… yeah, she’s been kind and supportive, and she’s assured me over and over that if he tries anything, he’s– he’s out of there.

Steffy: Hope,

I know what I saw.

You caressing thomas’s hands,

staring into his eyes,

saying all the things

that you were saying.

You have feelings for him. Liam, thomas’s feelings are in check. You don’t have to worry about him.

Thomas: Well, I think this day deserves a toast.

Hope: I completely agree.

Thomas: To the wonderful meeting we just had, and the big fat order that’s gonna come from it.

Hope: Mm, hear hear!

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: All right, uh, my turn. Uh, to us, to turning over a new leaf, and to continuing to make magic together.

Thomas: I’ll drink to that!

Hope: Hey, huzzah!

Thomas: Huzzah!

Thomas: Aw, man.

Hope: Mm. You know, I really do have to commend you, thomas. I mean, this whole… new and improved version of you. Thomas 2.0.

Thomas: Ha!

Hope: It’s been, um… it’s been really great to see. Not just at hope for the future, but… it’s been really beneficial for douglas as well.

Thomas: Well, I– I hope it’s not too boastful of me to say, but I am actually really proud of the progress I’ve made, ’cause it’s gotten us to a place where we can have a friendship like this.

Hope: Well, good! I think you should be proud. You’ve– you’ve put in a lot of hard work, and… honestly, I… am proud to call you my business partner now, and not only that, but I consider you a friend.

Thomas: Your high praises mean the world.

Thomas: You’re giving me that look again. What does it mean?

[ Laughs ]

Hope: I don’t know. I don’T…

[ Thomas laughing ] I mean– you know that I love liam. And my family, they mean everything to me.

Thomas: Of course.

Hope: Good. Because I’ve been really trying to… just have us in a good place, you know? And I’ve been constantly reassuring liam about our partnership, and that there’s nothing to worry about there, which is really ironic, that I’m the one having to assuage his fears, when he’s done everything that he’s done, and I have never given him anything to really worry about.

Thomas: Wait. Worry about what?

Hope: It has not always been easy to grow up in my mother’s shadow. I mean, you know. You’ve done it yourself. I mean, there’s been a lot of judgment cast upon my mom, and some of that judgment just… get passed down to me, and I have tried so hard to fight against that. I’m my own person, I’m not my mom, and her with her stupid excuse of just following her heart… really, she just… leaves a trail of devastation behind her. I never wanted to be like that. My principles, and my morals, they matter to me. It’S…

Thomas: No. Wait. Hey, hey, hold on. Hold on. Hope. You are the most principled and– and moral person I’ve ever met. You’re nothing like your mother. And I’ve watched you my entire life, you’re– you-re– you’re like one of the most incredible people ever. And you love your family. You always want to be with liam and– and nothing is gonna come between you two.

Hope: Thank you. Thank you.

Thomas: Here. Come here.

Carter: I just got the call. I know it’s not ideal with everything else going on.

Hope: Or it could be perfect timing. International buzz ghw wouldn’t hurt.

Thomas: What’s happening?

Hope: Well, some of our most influential buyers just arrived in san francisco.

Carter: Now that you and hope are a team again, they want you to fly up for a meeting.

Thomas: When?

Hope: Today.

Finn: I had a cancellation. So, well, naturally, I had to come see you.

Steffy: Mm. I love it when my sexy, handsome doctor makes an office call.

[ Door opens ]

Liam: Hey. So– oh. Oh. That’s–

Finn: We forgot to lock the door.

Steffy: Yeah, yeah.

Liam: Uh, hope sent a text saying that, uh, she and carter were here. I assumed it was in this room. Obviously, that’s not the case. So, uh, how are you?

Liam: You just, uh– you just point me in the direction of my wife and I will disappear, so…

Steffy: No, liam, actually, wait, I– I have kelly’s–

Liam: No, no, no. I’ll– I’ll come back. Steffy, I can come back for it.

Steffy: It’s right here–

Finn: Did you remember the new shoelaces?

Steffy: Here, catch.

Liam: The purple ones with the matching– the– the glittery–

Steffy: Of course! As if kelly would let me forget. Are you kidding?

Liam: Well, according to several of the fashion magazines I publish, they’re all the rage, so…

Finn: Well, she’s gonna be a trendsetter just like her mom.

Liam: Yeah, she sure is.

Finn: Hey, so, liam, I, um– I know we’re gonna see you at the soccer game this weekend, but I was wondering, uh, how are you holding up? Well, steffy mentioned some things. And I don’t think it’s a big secret that you still have issues with hope and thomas working together.

Liam: [ Laughs ] Uh…

Thomas: So, the buyers wanna meet with us today?

Carter: Soon as you can get there.

Thomas: In san francisco?

Carter: I already talked to the pilot. He can file a flight plan as soon as I give the word.

Thomas: Sudden.

Carter: Yeah, I just got the request. I ran it by hope on my way to find you. And like I explained to her, they’re very excited and wanna see you both.

Hope: This could be huge for our collection.

Thomas: So, we need to leave, like, right now.

Hope: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Are you willing to go?

Thomas: Yeah, of course. But, uh, are you?

Hope: Yes. I think it would be a great way to show them our confidence in our comeback and– and show them how well we’ve been working together.

Carter: So, what do you say, thomas?

Thomas: You know how committed I am to this line. Let’s roll. One prilosec otc each morning blocks

Liam: So, you really, truly think thomas has changed?

Finn: I do. A lot. Look, he’s– he’s taking therapy seriously. He’s focused on his work, being a better father. And there’s no question thomas is sincere, I– does it mean you need to stop being vigilant where hope is concerned? I– I can’t answer that.

Liam: I don’t know. Maybe you can. You spend time with him.

Finn: Well, at the house with family and not at work with hope.

Liam: Hmm. Yeah.

Steffy: You know where I stand on this.

Liam: You think that I’m too hard on thomas and I need to give him a break. Right?

Steffy: I think he is doing the work. And it’s not just talk.

Finn: Look, it’s– it’s his wife. He’s in love with her and he wants to protect her.

Liam: Absolutely. That’s it. That’s it.

Finn: That’s something I understand.

Liam: Thank you. And I just– I– here’s my thing. I just don’t wanna take thomas’s word for it when he says, “oh, it’s fine. You have nothing to worry about.” Because I’ve made that exact mistake before.

Finn: Uh, and it’s– it’s stressful. I mean, you’re– you’re on alert all the time.

Liam: Right. And I’m not– you know, I don’t wanna be, like, looking for problems where there aren’t any. But if I let my guard down and something does happen, he does snap or whatever, like, I’m never gonna forgive myself.

Steffy: Okay. Hold on. Hope doesn’t need protection from thomas.

Hope: This is about thomas


Steffy: Hope,

you were clutching his hands.

You were gazing into his eyes.

Hope: Stop, you’re making

a bigger deal out of that

moment than it has to be.

I mean, we were excited

about the numbers.

What more do you want

me to say?

Steffy: I just need to know.

I need to be a hundred

percent certain that you have

no inappropriate feelings

towards my brother. Liam, thomas won’t do anything to interfere in your marriage.

Carter: Won’t be an overnight trip.

Thomas: Yeah, well, we’re too busy for that.

Carter: Right. We’re in the swing of production. You’re churning out designs. But actual face time with the buyers, it’s too important to pass up. You’ll fly up, have the meeting, be back in la in time to say goodnight to your kids.

Hope: Perfect.

Thomas: Yeah.

Carter: And donna, she’s gonna book a room at the hotel. She’s setting up catering. All you two have to do is show up and kill your presentation.

Thomas: Yeah. Once we figure out which looks to bring for the collection.

Carter: Katie’s sending over an updated media package.

Hope: I already have sales preparing a deck about our pre-order numbers.

Thomas: Sounds like we’re all set.

Carter: Guys, hope for the future is making an excellent turnaround. But this meeting with the buyers could be crucial for your success.

Thomas: Securing a strong presence with the international market is important.

[ Phone chimes ]

Hope: Especially for an innovative brand like ours appealing to a younger, more socially conscious clientele.

Carter: It’s the pilot. The flight plan is filed. Jet’s being fueled.

Hope: Okay. So, we just need to grab a few things here and then we’ll be on our way.

Carter: Good luck. We’ll debrief in the morning.

Thomas: Thanks for setting this up, carter.

Carter: It’s in your hands now. Bring it home.

Hope: Okay, so, what do we need to bring? I need my tablet. Uh, we need our designs. I think we should bring design number six and some fabric samples.

Thomas: Maybe we should bring an exclusive, something no one else has seen.

Hope: That’s smart. That’s smart. Let them have the first look. I think that could go a long way. Oh! This is exciting. I– I can’t wait.

Thomas: Neither can I. But what about liam? Can’t imagine he’s gonna be too thrilled about this.

Hope: Thrilled about what? What’s going on? No two bodies are the same.

Liam: Okay. So, obviously there’s something I should know about. What? What is it?

Hope: Um, well, carter was just here and I have to fly to san francisco for a meeting. Some of our most influential buyers are in town and they want to discuss our upcoming collection.

Liam: That’s great.

Hope: Yeah. Yeah. So, it’s– it’s gonna be a quick trip, just there and back.

Liam: Okay. When?

Hope: Today. Actually, like, right now.

Liam: Oh, okay. Uh, I don’t– wait. I don’t– why? Like, there’s nothing going on with the kids and you and I don’t have any plans. Why would– why would I not be– ’cause thomas is going. Okay. Yeah.

Thomas: Liam, uh, hope and I are both the leaders of hope for the future and the buyer wants to see both of us.

Liam: So, it’s the buyer’s idea? Okay.

Thomas: Yes. Uh, you know what, I’m gonna leave you guys to talk about this. I have some sketches I need to grab. Okay. Right. [ Clears throat ] But I– liam, just so you know, I– you got nothing to worry about.

Finn: Go lock the door.

Steffy: But I don’t wanna let you go. And my employees should know not to barge in on the boss, so…

Finn: Mm-hmm?

Steffy: Yeah.

[ Door opens ]

Thomas: Steff, I just need to grab a few things.

[ Finn chuckles ]

Steffy: Except that one.

Finn: Yeah.

Thomas: You’re busy.

Steffy: Uh, try– trying to be.

Thomas: Yeah. Okay. I won’t be here for very long. I just need to grab a couple sketches. The jet’s waiting.

Steffy: You’re doing that now?

Thomas: Yeah. Carter has all the details. And if you’re gonna be in here for a little bit longer, then maybe you should lock the door.

Steffy: We really should’ve learned our lesson when liam walked in on us earlier.

Thomas: Actually, liam is across the hall right now with hope, and he is not happy.

Steffy: Why? What happened?

Thomas: Carter didn’t tell you about the meeting?

Steffy: He texted me, but I was kind of busy.

Thomas: Okay. Um, well, um, hope and I have an impromptu meeting in san francisco today.

Steffy: You and hope are going together?

Thomas: Yes. And liam found out about it and he was as surprised as you are.

Finn: Hmm. I’ll bet.

Thomas: Yeah. I’m guessing by the look on his face when I left, he’s probably not wishing her a bon voyage.

Hope: We only just learned about this meeting a few minutes ago from carter.

Liam: All right. So, hope and thomas take on san francisco.

Hope: Just for the day. We just fly up, have the meeting, fly back. It’s not an overnight. Liam, I know how you feel about thomas. It’s just, this could really make or break our collection and it could generate a lot of buzz.

Liam: Yeah, no, no. I to– I get it. I totally get it. It’s just, it’S… you and thomas taking a trip together, just the two of you, after the time you already spend together. It’s– it’s a lot. But–

Hope: I know that we would normally have a longer conversation about this and I– I get your concerns.

Liam: Yeah. And you’ve heard those concerns ad nauseam. It is what it is.

Hope: Okay. But you understand why I have to go, right? Like, what it takes to sell a collection. I just– I don’t want you to be upset or to worry.

Liam: Hey, I’ll be waiting for you to get home tonight.

Hope: Thank you. Liam, I just– I want you to know that the way you support me and the way you look out for me, I– I don’t take that for granted. Okay? ‘Cause my commitment is to you and only you. I love you.

Liam: I love you, too. Feeling sluggish or weighed down?

Steffy: This meeting could be a big game-changer. The couture line has a strong share with them. But hope for the future is just getting its foothold. If they wanna see more of hope and thomas, they need to go.

Finn: Mm, they did, right?

Steffy: Yeah. They’re on a plane right now.

Finn: Well, good. ‘Cause that means we might not get interrupted again.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] No. Oh, great. You’re back.

Liam: You know this door has a lock on it, right?

Finn: Yeah. We just keep getting sidetracked.

Liam: Gross. Forgot kelly’s soccer stuff.

Steffy: I’m assuming you heard about, uh, hope’s trip?

Liam: Last minute san francisco trip? Yeah.

Steffy: I just heard about it, too. You know thomas is going, right?

Liam: Oh, I know. I was with them right before they left.

Finn: You okay with that?

Liam: With my wife’s formerly obsessed lead designer and her taking a little trippy trip together?

Steffy: Liam.

Liam: Obviously, I’m not pleased with it. No.

Steffy: Well, it’s really good for the collection and for hope.

Liam: Yeah. No, yes, of course. And I’m– I’m so proud and supportive of everything hope has accomplished.

Steffy: And my brother’s a big part of that, too.

Liam: Why does everybody think that it’s thomas’s talent I’m doubting? His talent is not the problem. His personality is. And if any of his… issues happen to crop up again, given the right opportunity, like, say, cozy little business trip, we’re gonna have an issue.

Steffy: It’s a necessary trip.

Liam: It’s a necessary trip. I know. I’m just– yeah. Okay. Listen, do I wish hope was going with carter or, well, literally anybody else on the planet? Yes, I do. But like I told hope, I have absolute faith in her. And even though I don’t love how much time she’s spending with thomas, I just have to keep reminding myself that– that there is no– there’s no concern I have for thomas that trumps the faith I have in hope. And I’m incredibly lucky to have her as a wife because she’s honest and she’s genuine and she’s forthright and she loves me. So, there you have it.

Thomas: There you go.

Hope: Thank you.

Thomas: You’re welcome.

Hope: Katie put together a great package about the preview.

Thomas: Yeah? We should start with that and then get into the sales numbers.

Hope: Yeah. The sales team included some projections. I think we go over that and then you’re up.

Thomas: I’m up? No, I think, uh, the best person to talk about hope for the future is hope.

Hope: Yeah. Except the buyers want to see the man behind the design, so…

Pilot: Apologies for the interrupting, but we are gonna be taking off shortly.

Hope: Thank you. Oh, and there aren’t going to be any delays tonight? No fog? We’ll be able to get into los angeles in time this evening?

Pilot: Yes.

Hope: Thank you.

Pilot: You should buckle up. Prepare for takeoff.

Thomas: Thanks.

Hope: [ Clears throat ] So, I know this is a short flight, but I do think we should keep working. I know we don’t have a lot of time to prepare, but I want this presentation to go as smoothly as possible.

Thomas: Yeah. Um… I do wanna talk about this before we get going–

Hope: What?

Thomas: Since we weren’t able to on the way to–

Hope: What? What?

Thomas: Your conversation with liam, how did that go? Look, I– I don’t want our working together or– or– or– yeah, I don’t know, being together at all to cause any issue in your marriage.

Hope: I really do appreciate that, thomas. I do. And I– I believe you. I mean, it wasn’t too long ago that taking this trip with you, it– it might give me pause. But now, I mean, thomas, you have changed. And because of that, I mean, we– we wouldn’t be going to this meeting today. I mean, you helped revitalize hope for the future.

Thomas: I’m just trying to live up to your faith in me.

Hope: Oh, well, you’re kinda doing it every day right now, so…

Thomas: But what about liam?

Hope: Liam knows that I love him and I love our marriage. I love our family. I love our life together. And nothing and no one will ever come between that.

Thomas: I believe you. I know that. I mean, you’ve never been that kind of person. I– I– I saw your mother growing up and she– she made a lot of mistakes, right? She would be with one man, then go to another, and sometimes it wasn’t at the right time. Sometimes not with the right man. But you’re not like that. And you would never do that. Not you. Never you.

[ Heart beating ]

[ Clears throat ]

Steffy: Hey.

Hope: Oh, steffy. What’s up?

Steffy: We have to talk. About what I saw between you and my brother.

Taylor: Look at my boy hard at work.

Thomas: [ Laughs ] Sorry. I was in the zone.

Taylor: I know, I can see that and here I am breaking your concentration.

Thomas: No, not at all. I’m never too busy for you.

Taylor: You are just being sweet. I know. But I do love seeing you here at forrester creations. Following in your dad and granddad’s footsteps.

Thomas: You know, I hear it runs in the blood.

Taylor: Yeah, it does. But you know what? You have your very own way of doing things. You know? Not just– not just here at work but in life as well. You’re gonna make it happen. And shock ’em all.

Liam: I mean, it’s a good– it’s a good idea. I just don’t know how you implement something like that.

Wyatt: Well, that’s the thing. I have a top coder worker on it right now. We’re building up the platform and we’ll take a look at it.

Liam: So basically, it’s like a– it’s like a daily roundup of just what– like, whatever the top influencers are posting about.

Wyatt: Right. Correct. Yes. But we’re just arranging it in a way to make it appealing, you know, one-stop shop.

Liam: That’s interesting.

Wyatt: Yeah?

Liam: I mean, it’s– it’s more convenient for the user because it kind of like streamlines the whole retail experience.

Wyatt: Exactly. And you know what else I was thinking, we should maybe reach out to hope and see if the fashion houses might be able to utilize something like this. You know what I mean? Oh! Or better yet. I can’t believe I didn’t even think of this. Like, you should maybe reach out to her top designer, because I know you can’t wait to talk to him.

Liam: Wow!

[ Wyatt laughs ] Wow!

Wyatt: You don’t– no?

[ Laughs sarcastically ]

Liam: Yeah, too soon. Too soon.

Wyatt: I’m sorry, I just– I couldn’t help myself.

Liam: Oh, you couldn’t? Thomas forrester spends 12 hours a day with my wife and he lives rent-free in my head. But– but wyatt couldn’t help himself, so– so– so there’s that.

Wyatt: I’m sorry! Okay? But it’s a damn good idea, isn’t it?

Liam: I hope to god you’re talking about the app.

Wyatt: Of course, I’m talking about the app! But it’s not just an app, it’s the app of all apps. I’m telling you. If we build this right, and we market it correctly, this could be eight figures, easy.

Liam: It does have potential.

Wyatt: See? And then think about the monthly subscriptions.

Liam: Ooh.

Wyatt: Mm. Maybe I should talk to thomas’s people about this. And just ask.

Liam: Oh, my god! You’re the worst person. Ever. Do you understand I’m trying to get thomas out of my head and you just keep shoving him back in again? Stop it, stop, stop it.

Taylor: I just– I am– I am just so impressed with everything that you’re doing.

Thomas: I never get tired of hearing you say that. Well, good because I– I say it every day.

Thomas: Yeah, you do. That’s true.

Taylor: You know, it’s just, I– I see so much of your dad in you, when it comes to finding the inspiration in your designs. You just get so laser-focused.

Thomas: Yeah. So long as I’m laser-focused on hope for the future and not hope, right, mom?

Hope: This is about thomas again?

Steffy: Hope, you were clutching his hands. You were gazing into his eyes–

Hope: Steffy, you’re making a bigger deal out of that moment than it has to be. I mean, we were excited about the numbers. What more do you want me to say?

Steffy: I just need to know. I need to be 100% certain that you have no inappropriate feelings towards my brother. (Tap, tap)

Wyatt: Look, I’m trying to make light of the situation.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. No, no, I clocked that.

Wyatt: I’m your brother. I’m trying a different tact here. I’m supposed to give you a hard time, aren’t I?

Liam: Okay. Actually, you know what– you know what the hardest thing about the whole thomas situation is? It’s just– it’s just me trying to predict when he’s gonna cross the line again. Like, precisely when is that gonna happen?

Wyatt: Because you know he will.

Liam: No, of course he will. I mean, this– nobody goes through a sweeping life change like that in a matter of months. And especially not thomas.

Wyatt: Yeah. I mean, it’s– it’s definitely not real, that’s for sure.

Liam: No, it’s definitely not real. Or at least it’s not– it’s not as real as everybody seems to think it is. Which is why I– I’m still keeping my eye on him.

Wyatt: Well, and hope’s doing the same thing though, right?

Liam: Yeah. Well, she– I mean, she says she’s, you know, always on the lookout for red flags. And, uh, you know, my job is to believe that, so–

Wyatt: Okay, good. ‘Cause hope’s not one to lie. So, you’ve got no reason to doubt her.

Liam: No, I– that’s right. I– I completely trust hope. She’s– it’s– it’s just frustrating that she works so much with thomas and that’s why I’m keeping my guard up because I just– it– work is one thing. I don’t want him to interfere in my marriage.

Taylor: So, do you remember– do you remember the, uh– your dad’s office at the old house? You used to sit on top of his big desk, eating a– a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And then– and then you’d tuck your little hands underneath you and you’d watch him draw for hours.

Thomas: Yeah, I remember now. That’s what started my love affair with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

[ Giggling ] Ah, those– those times from my childhood, they had such a huge impact on me.

Taylor: I know they did. And now look at you.

Thomas: No place I’d rather be.

Taylor: Yeah, I know. I know. And I– I just– I wish that you had a– a healthier balance between work and…

[Whispering] …Life.

Thomas: I go on dates, mom.

Taylor: Right. But nothing significant.

Thomas: [ Laughs ] Oh, man. Look at you. I could just– oh, you’re transparent.

Taylor: What are you–

Thomas: I see right through you. Come on, I can tell, obviously, you still are concerned about me and my feelings or potential feelings for hope.

Taylor: Oh, do you know what? Just because I come by and check on you every now and again, doesn’t–

Thomas: You mean every hour or two?

Taylor: That is my “smotherly” love. Deal with it.

Thomas: Okay. You’re right. I’m sorry. I– smother away. Because you love your kids. And I couldn’t be more grateful that I have someone who cares about me so much. Bring it in.

[ Taylor laughing ]

Hope: I thought we had already put this issue to rest.

Steffy: I need to be absolutely sure. There is so much riding on your partnership being successful. And not just for your line, but for thomas’s well-being.

Hope: Look, I get it. You’re being a protective sister, which I would do the same thing if I were in your shoes. But can I ask you an honest question, steffy? I mean, you and your family, you– you truly do believe that thomas has changed, right?

Steffy: Yes, absolutely.

Hope: Okay. So, then, am I not allowed to trust that? To appreciate the man that he’s become? Someone who is kind. Who doesn’t just think about himself. Who actually worked hard on the road to self-improvement.

Steffy: That’s why I don’t want you unraveling all the progress thomas has made.

Hope: Steffy, I would never do that. I am rooting for him just as much as you are. And what you walked in on–

Steffy: Holding his hands?

Hope: We were caught up in the moment.

Steffy: What kind of moment?

Hope: One of excitement. I mean, steffy, you know, better than anyone, that my line was on the brink of collapse and your brother helped save it. And not only that, we work together, we’re co-parents and yes, thomas is– is now a good friend of mine.

Steffy: That’s why I need reassurance that you don’t have any feelings for him.

Hope: Am I happy for thomas? Yes. Am I proud of him? Absolutely. But are there any romantic feelings, steffy? No, none at all. “Look at this skin, baby.

Taylor: Okay. So, you know I don’t just come here to– to check on you, right?

Thomas: I do. Yeah, I do.

Taylor: No, I– I– I come here because I– I also want to catch up and see your handsome face. Not just the serious stuff.

Thomas: No, you don’t want to just talk about the serious stuff. Like therapy and all my past trauma. What you want to know is, you know, if I’m getting enough vitamins or sleep.

Taylor: Are you?

Thomas: Yes.

Taylor: [ Giggles ] Okay, good. Now, honey, I am– I am, uh– I am here really for– for something very important and I– I just– I need you to be honest with me.

Thomas: Okay.

Taylor: Have you seen the season finale of–

Thomas: No, no. Why would I do that? That would– you– you watched it without me? Why would you–

Taylor: I might’ve–

Thomas: That’s– why? That’s– that’s really painful. Talk about trauma. You’re bringing more into my life. Why would you do that? Wow! Mom!

Taylor: You’ve been so busy! And it’s so good.

[ Groaning ]

Thomas: Oh, yeah. I’m so glad to hear that. So good. Can’t wait to watch it on my own. You’re– yeah. Okay. Look, you– you’re very sweet. And, um, honestly, I’m– I’m glad that you do check on me. Because… therapy and– and working through all this stuff, this is the reason that I’m actually making significant changes this time.

Taylor: I know. You’re doing so good. You are– you are truly committed to making a real shift happen.

Wyatt: These look good. And I’ll just take these back once they’re executed. All right. Thanks, margie. So… things with hope are good, then?

Liam: Things with hope are good. Yeah. They’d be great, if it weren’t for thomas, but they’re good.

Wyatt: Right. Look. I know that it’s hard, but you just, you gotta stay positive.

Liam: No, positive– look. You know me. I’m– I’m an optimist. It’s just been a challenge lately. We’ve had, you know, some disagreements and–

Wyatt: About thomas? Let’s see, we talked about this, once before? Twice?

Liam: Oh god. Yeah, I know. I know. I know. I know. I vent to you. I use you as a– as a vent. That’s– that’s our thing. You know what? It would be easier if I just didn’t have to, like, conform to the whole thomas-is-a-changed-man narrative thing. Right?

Wyatt: Right.

Liam: I mean, that– that’s been a challenge. That’s what’s created conflict between hope and me. In certain areas. In other areas, we’re actually, uh, pretty good.

Wyatt: Right. Other areas.

Liam: Yeah, other areas that I won’t go into too much detail about. Suffice it to say, there is this boutique shop on melrose that we’ve gone to a couple of times.

Wyatt: I’m gonna call thomas, how about that?

Liam: Okay, foul ball.

Wyatt: Okay, time out.

Liam: All right.

Wyatt: Time out.

Liam: It’s– everything’s fine. I have nothing to complain about. I have everything to be grateful for. As a matter of fact, hope has, really, I don’t think ever been as loving or affectionate, so…

Wyatt: Well, that’s good. Yeah, I’m glad. I’m happy for you both.

Liam: Thank you.

Wyatt: Look, it’s hard enough trying to keep up the romance when you got kids and jobs and family and all that. Not to mention when you have A…

[ Shuddering ] …Stupid face like thomas lurking around.

[ Chuckling ]

Liam: I’m– I’m, uh– I’m trying not to obsess too much over that stupid face lurking around. And in the meantime, one thing is clear, I’m just incredibly lucky to have hope in my life. Because there is no one more loyal or committed than her.

Hope: I don’t have any feelings for thomas. Nothing beyond friendship, collaboration and sharing a son together.

Steffy: Okay. I just want to make sure you’re not following some of brooke’s patterns.

Hope: Okay, steffy. I– we’re not talking about my mom right now. We’re talking about me, right? And I am my own person. I know myself. I know my boundaries, and while I may be brooke logan’s daughter, I am nothing like her when it comes to men. I would never do anything to undermine the life that I have built for myself and for my family. And I would certainly never do anything inappropriate with any man, let alone thomas. Scout is protected by simparica trio,

Thomas: I wish I had time, I could take you to lunch.

Taylor: Oh, gosh, I would love that. I really would. But I– I know that you’re creating masterpieces and I have an entire day filled with patients.

Thomas: Well, I appreciate you coming by, seeing how I’m doing.

Taylor: Yeah. Always. Always. I’m– I’m– I’m not too smothering. Am I?

Thomas: No. Honestly, it’s been– it’s been pretty amazing having you and your support. I don’t know what I would have done without your faith in me. It’s really helped motivate me.

Taylor: You know, I am– I am just here to remind you that– that you’re not alone. And I see you. You know, what you’re doing today is just getting you that much closer to where you’ll be tomorrow. And I am just so proud that I get to ride shotgun on this journey with you.

Thomas: Well, I– I “lerve” you, mom.

Taylor: I “lerve” you back.

[ Both chuckling ]

Wyatt: Well, I’d say life is treating you pretty well. And you know what, I’m glad. Because I think you deserve all the happiness in the world.

Liam: Thanks, man. And that’s true. You know what, hope is… an immeasurable part of that. Just knowing that she’s– she’s there for me. She’s got my back. I can always count on her. The kids can always count on her. There’s nothing better than that.

Wyatt: Yeah. I mean, look, you– you lucked out when you married that one.

Liam: That’s true. There is no one more kind or compassionate, or with more integrity than hope logan.

Wyatt: Yep. Apple kind of fell far from the tree on that one, huh?

Liam: Hmm?

Wyatt: With brooke? I mean, I don’t mean any disrespect to brooke. Or anything–

Liam: No, no, no.

Wyatt: She’s a phenomenal woman, you know what I mean? But, I mean, come on, we heard the stories about her when she was younger, when she was hope’s age, you know? And–

Liam: Yeah.

Wyatt: And that whole thing.

Liam: Yeah, they’re– they’re different, you know. Different personalities, different, uh, value systems.

Wyatt: Yeah. It was just– sometimes, I– I– you know, it’s hard to believe that she’s hope’s mom.

[ Laughing ]

Liam: No, me too. Hope is definitely her own person. I mean, she’s so– she’s got, like, such a specific… moral code.

Wyatt: Right.

Liam: You know, and she sticks with it. She, like, never strays from it. But that’s– that’s great for me. That’s why I love her so much, right? Like, I never have to worry about that. I never have to question her fidelity. Or her commitment.

Hope: I mean, you know how much I love liam, how– how hard I fought for him and for our relationship. I mean, hell, steffy, I even fought you–

Steffy: I– I’m not– I’m not disputing your feelings for your husband. I know you love him. It’s just thomas has come a long way. He’s moved on from his dysfunctional ways. He’s not pining for you anymore. And I’d hate to see him get caught up in all of this again.

Hope: Thomas understands that there was never anything between us, there never will be. He’s finally accepted that. And that is why the line is in such a good place. It’s because he and I are finally on the same page. And thomas knows how much I love liam. And between you and me, I mean, liam and I, we’ve never been more connected. So, yes, while I may spend my days at work here with your brother, our relationship is purely platonic and professional. And I–

[ Clatter ] Oh, sorry. Just– yeah.

Steffy: Look, um, I’m happy that you and liam are in a good place. And hey, okay, maybe, maybe my imagination was running wild when I walked in on you and thomas.

Hope: I mean, I get it. I just– I think you were reading a little too far into things. I have a healthy working relationship with thomas. And I am happily married to liam.

Steffy: Okay. Just, things are going so well for our families and I– I don’t want anything to mess it up is all.

Hope: Well, you don’t have to worry about thomas and me. Okay? I promise.

Steffy: Okay.

[ Crickets chirping ]

Liam: Okay, how much time until the kids get home?

Hope: Two words for you: Sleep. Over.

[ Exaggerated gasp ]

Liam: Both of them?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Yup, so…

Liam: [ Whispering ] Yes.

Hope: We have the entire night to ourselves. And I plan on devoting that to my very handsome husband.

Liam: Oh, no complaints here.

Finn: Hey. Thanks again for taking on bedtime duties solo.

Steffy: Hey, my husband wants an after-dinner dip in the ocean and I make that happen. No ulterior motives here, I swear.

Finn: No?

Steffy: None whatsoever. No.

Finn: Oh, okay, okay.

Steffy: Mm. You’re just so sexy. And I’m so lucky to be your wife. Not because of… all of this. I mean– I mean, yes, but… but this. I’m so blessed to have you in my life.

Finn: I think I’m the lucky one. I’m married to a woman that’s such a beautiful force of nature. Come here.

[ Pencil scratching ]

R.J.: You’re always sketching, aren’t you, thomas?

Thomas: What’s that?

R.J.: Oh, you know. Just you and a sketchpad, never far apart. Is dad that much of a tyrant, you know? He’s got you designing 24/7?

Thomas: No.

R.J.: Okay. Never mind. Seems like you’re in some sort of artistic trance. Well, I’ll let you be.

Thomas: Hang on, R.J. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Hold on.

[ Laughs ] I just… yeah, you know what? I should– I should take a– a minute away from this. I’ve been working on it for a while.

R.J.: Wow. Looks great.

Thomas: Thanks.

R.J.: Can totally see hope wearing it. That’s the whole point, right? Why you two are so successful? You know, her visions coming to life through your hands?

Thomas: My hands.

R.J.: Yeah, I’m assuming that’s how you, uh, normally hold a pencil, unless you’ve been designing by foot, all of these years. ‘Cause if so, dude, you gotta let me record that. We could go viral.

[ Thomas chuckles ] Yeah.

R.J.: So, you seriously seem to be working a lot. You ever get bored of being in the office?

Thomas: No, not really. I– I– I like it. I love being here and being productive. But what about you? Why– why are you here at this hour?

R.J.: Oh, I was just having dinner with mom across the street. Thought I’d pop in, see if hope was still here. Do you know where she is?

Thomas: No. Should I?

R.J.: Uh, yeah.

[ Chuckles ] From what I’ve heard, it sounds like hope spends all of her time with you.

Liam: Well…

Hope: Hmm.

Liam: This night certainly took a turn. Here, I thought I was gonna be home alone with the kids, while you were working late.

Hope: Yeah. I think there have been too many late work nights lately. And I– I need some much-needed hubby time. And, uh, I think we need to make more nights like this a priority. I really wanna spend more time with each other, focusing on us, our relationship, and I’m, um… I’m sorry that I haven’t been there for you as much as I would like to be right now.

Finn: Hayes get his 10 kisses?

Steffy: Oh! More like 12.

Finn: 12?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Oh, the boy’s upping his game?

Steffy: He certainly knows how to work me.

Finn: Yeah, well, like father, like son.

Steffy: [ Laughs ] Yeah, that is true.

[ Groaning ]

Finn: You okay?

Steffy: Yeah, no, it’s just, um… ah…

Finn: What?

Steffy: Something happened at the office today.

Finn: Something that worries you? Feeling sluggish or weighed down?

[ R.J. Chuckles ]

R.J.: You know, I think it’s pretty cool, that my half-brother, through my father, is designing for my half-sister through my mom. Makes me feel like I’m a part of it all. You know, like I’m this thing connecting everyone together.

Thomas: But?

R.J.: But, you know one of the reasons I was out of the country for so long, thomas? I don’t necessarily like being the one connecting everybody. It’s a lot of pressure. I– you know? It’s– and it’s just asking for trouble. Especially when someone is bringing on a lot of drama.

[ Thomas chortles ]

Thomas: Yeah. Someone. I know that someone is me.

R.J.: Thomas, you’re my brother. Okay? I’m always going to care about you. But… you crossed lines that should have never been crossed. And you didn’t just do it one time, thomas. You did it multiple times.

Thomas: You’re right. I did. Look, I– I’ve been working on myself and I think I’m finally the kind of brother you can actually be proud of.

R.J.: We’re good now, thomas. I’m– I’m taking you at your word. Okay? But you understand why I’ve been away for so long, right? Like, you get it?

Thomas: Yeah, I get it. And I promise I don’t want to meddle in our dad’s love life ever again.

R.J.: I mean, that’s– that’s good. I’m glad to hear it. If our dad decides to get back together with my mom or your mom, or… I don’t know, someone else entirely, it’s– it’s their business. It’s not ours, right?

Thomas: 100%.

R.J.: Yeah.

Thomas: Yeah. I’ve interfered for the last time. All right? Their– their relationships, their problems. It’s their business.

R.J.: Facts. And, you know, I’m assuming it’s the same deal with hope. Right? No more interfering there. Thomas, where do things stand between you and my sister?

Liam: Ooh, what do we got? What do we got? What do we got? What is this? Is this the, um… is this that cab we got from the winery last summer?

Hope: Yup.

Liam: Wow. You know something? I kind of thought you were saving it for our anniversary.

Hope: Saving it for a special occasion. Which this is. A toast. To what really matters. I– I know I have been pretty focused on work lately, but at the end of the day, nothing matters more to me than this family. My handsome husband. Our beautiful children. This house that we’ve made a home. So, here’s to us.

Liam: To us.

[ Clinking ]

Finn: Honey, what’s going on? Hmm? A situation at work? Is it something I can help with?

Steffy: No. But it’s really sweet of you to offer. And I’m not entirely sure if it’s even a situation or… maybe I’m reading too much into it. God, I hope so, because there’s so much riding on the line.

Finn: A while ago you were worried about hope for the future. And whether or not thomas should work on the line again. Does this have anything to do with that? With hope and your brother?

Steffy: Yeah.

If you have this…

Thomas: Hope and I are doing really well now. As co-parents, as coworkers. I mean, look, we’ve got a strong and solid and platonic relationship.

R.J.: And you’ve accepted that’s just all it’s ever gonna be?

Thomas: Yeah. Look, I– I get it. She’s your sister. You’re protective. I know exactly how that feels. You love her.

R.J.: Yeah, of course. I mean, she’s amazing. She deserves the best.

Thomas: She does.

R.J.: You thought that was you for a long time, didn’t you, thomas?

Thomas: Look, I came back from new york and I was a single dad. I– I didn’t know how to fill my son’s life and– and– and he needed a mother and he connected with hope. And it was a beautiful thing and she really, really filled that role in his life. And for that I will always love her.

R.J.: I get it. Hope is a very caring, kind person. But she’s married to someone else now, thomas.

Thomas: I get that. And I didn’t respect that marriage in the past. I did a lot of things that hurt a lot of people. Especially in our family and… I don’t know how, but at some point, I was able to earn back some of their forgiveness. I don’t think I deserve it. But I think I finally got to the point where I realize in myself, I– I’m not that person anymore. So, I can promise you, hope and her marriage to liam, they have nothing to worry about.

Liam: I hope you know… how much this means to me. How you’ve invested in us, I-in our marriage. Um, ’cause I admit, I– you know, I was worried when you said that you would work with thomas again. I just kind of assumed it would put a strain on the relationship, especially with you spending the majority of your time at– at the office. But, you know–

Hope: Liam, can we–

Liam: Yeah?

Hope: — Maybe not talk about thomas? Tonight is supposed to be about us.

Liam: Yes. Yes. That’s way better, way better topic. Us. Uh, um, much more interesting.

Hope: Yeah. And, uh, sexier, too.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah.

Finn: So, this problem weighing on you, it’s– it’s about hope for the future, isn’t it?

Steffy: Not only is my husband incredibly sexy, he is very perceptive. I– no, seriously, you are, like, the smartest man I know.

Finn: So, that means I’m right.

Steffy: The line is doing well. The preorders are doing better than expected.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Okay, well, that’s– that’s great.

Steffy: It is great. It is. Uh, but–

Finn: Well, so, if you aren’t concerned about the line itself, that must mean that… you’re concerned about the people behind it. Was it a mistake letting hope and thomas work together?

[ Steffy laughs softly ] Life… doesn’t stop for diabetes.

R.J.: I’m impressed. You made some serious improvements, man. And I’m– I’m genuinely proud of the person you’re becoming.

Thomas: Hey, right back at you.

R.J.: Oh, come on, you don’t mean that. You’re just happy that I’m wasting my life away on the internet.

Thomas: Um, I don’t know if I would define lining up sponsorships and traveling all over the world on those sponsorships as “wasting time.”

[ Soft chuckle ]

R.J.: I just got a great idea.

Thomas: What?

R.J.: You should explain that to dad.

Thomas: Nope.

R.J.: Why not?

Thomas: Come on.

R.J.: Please?

Thomas: No. I just told you that I am not getting involved in anybody’s business or meddling around. Okay? And I don’t think anybody could tell dad that, uh, ridge forrester, jr. Is not supposed to be a fashion designer. It’s not happening. But, you know what? If you ever feel like you wanna come in here, you wanna work on some designs with me, or just see the process, you’re always welcome. I’m– I’m right here.

R.J.: Thank you, thomas. I appreciate it.

Thomas: Glad you’re back, R.J.

R.J.: Well, hey, that makes two of us.

[ Contented sighing ]

Liam: Wow. Okay. Wow. That was, uh… that was, uh… that– that ju– that was, um… I don’t know what’s gotten into you lately, but you have– you have never been more passionate or– or in the moment. Oh, my god, I– I love it. It’s amazing.

Hope: Yeah, I just, um… just want you to know how I feel. It’s important for me to… to show you how much I love you.

Finn: You’re concerned with your brother collaborating with hope?

Steffy: Yeah, you’re right.

Finn: Well, have you not been reassuring liam about all this? Just tell him that there’s no reason to worry?

Steffy: Yes, I have.

Finn: Look, I– I know he’s not crazy about the idea of thomas and hope spending so much time together.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. Mm, that’s– that’s putting it mildly.

Finn: And despite all the work and therapy thomas has put in, he still thinks that– thomas is obsessed with hope and that he’s gonna make a move and– and try and do something. And I thought at least, well, until tonight, that you felt the opposite. I th-thought you believed in thomas.

Steffy: I– I do. That hasn’t changed.

Finn: Okay. Well, so much for being the smartest man. You know, ’cause I– I thought that’s where you were–

Steffy: No, no, no, I– look. Thomas is better. And I– I trust him completely. And I won’t let anyone or anything derail the progress he’s made.

Finn: Uh, okay. So, you’re– you’re concerned with liam and his negativity? Try not to worry. Okay? Liam will figure it out for himself. H-he will see that there is no problem and that there’s no reason to be worried.

Steffy: Let’s not waste any more time talking about hope or liam.

Finn: Got something else in mind?

Steffy: Yeah, I have something in mind. Doesn’t involve talking.

Steffy: Do you have

feelings for thomas?

Are you actually turning

into your mother?

Hope: You know, moments like this are so important. And I– I know I’ve been really distracted with work lately and I just– I hope you know how much you and our family– I mean, you come first, always. I– I love you and you’ll never doubt that, right?

Liam: I don’t doubt you. I have never doubted you. I have never questioned your feelings or your loyalty, and I never will.

Steffy: Hope, I know what I saw. You, caressing thomas’ hands, staring into his eyes, saying all the things that you were saying. You have feelings for him. Hope, tell me the truth. Now.

Thomas: There’s no way.

Ridge: No way what, thomas?

Waitress: Your brother said to give this to you.

[ Scoffs ]

Liam: Of course he did. Thank you.

Taylor: I called your office, and they said you would be here. May I join you?

Liam: I… hi. Yes. Yes. Uh, please, please sit. Hi. What’s up, taylor?

Taylor: I just wanted to speak to you. About… your wife and my son.

[ Liam chuckles ]

Liam: Uh, I feel like you might want to talk to me about hope and thomas working together.

Taylor: Oh, you are correct.

Liam: Ah.

Taylor: You’ve had a lot of strong objections.

Liam: I… I have. Yeah. But you already know what they are. I mean, I’m just– I’m concerned that thomas is gonna do what he’s already done–

Taylor: He won’T.

Liam: Okay. Listen–

Taylor: Thomas is not gonna cross any lines. And… I’m not just saying that because he’s my son. I’m saying that because I know he won’T. He’s not gonna throw away all the work he’s done and risk his career and family… for something that can never be.

Ridge: Something wrong?

Thomas: No, it’s just, um…

Ridge: Just talking to yourself.

Thomas: I was thinking out loud.

Ridge: Thinking out loud about what?

Thomas: This, uh, the sketch is just, like… there’s something off about it.

Ridge: Mm. That’s what it’s about?

Thomas: Yeah, I appreciate your concern. But, um…

Ridge: But what?

Thomas: You know what? Um… maybe it would be good to talk about it. And I don’t want to fall back into old patterns.

[ Clearing throat ] It’s– it’s about hope.

Steffy: My brother is doing everything he possibly can to redeem himself. Not only here at work, but with douglas. And the rest of the family.

Hope: No, I know. I– I know.

Steffy: Do you know that? Because what I just saw, was you flirting with thomas. And I know that sounds so crazy because thomas is the one we’re supposed to be worried about. Not you. Not sweet hope. Hope who never misbehaves. But you are now. Because I saw you flirting with my brother. When it comes to your hair, ingredients matter.

Liam: You’ve always had a lot of faith in thomas, haven’t you?

Taylor: Are you– are you saying I shouldn’t have?

Liam: No, I’m not saying that. I’M… what am I saying? I guess I just– I think he’s lucky to have a parent who believes in him as much as you do.

Taylor: I’m lucky to have thomas as a son. And yes, I do believe in him. But if he was playing as I–

Liam: Which, he’s done before.

Taylor: Yeah, he has. Boy, he was good at it, wasn’t he? And as good as he was at it, I am now better at spotting his tells. And he is– he is still making progress with them.

Liam: I mean, yeah, that’s good. That– that is good. That’s a good thing. But can we– elephant in the room? Taylor, you’re a psychiatrist. But in this context you’re not just a psychiatrist. You’re also thomas’ mother. So, how–

Taylor: How could i be unbiased?

Liam: Yes.

Taylor: That is– that is a fair question. You know, um, I wouldn’t be fighting so hard for thomas if I wasn’t absolutely certain he’d changed. You know, I– I have a lot more invested in thomas getting better than you do. He’s my son.

[ Stammering ] I just want the best for him. So– so being biased in this situation, it would be the worst possible thing for him. And for hope.

Ridge: So this is about hope. What about her?

Thomas: It’s about hope. It’s about, uh, hope for the future. And… have you seen the preorder numbers?

Ridge: I have not.

Thomas: Okay. Well. They came in.

Ridge: Okay.

Thomas: And… let me see. Here you go. They exceeded our expectations.

Ridge: Well, this is amazing. You should be really happy.

Thomas: Well, hope is ecstatic.

Ridge: And she should be happy too, because her line’s been struggling a little bit.

Thomas: Uh, well, you know, a lot has changed since then.

Ridge: Really? The only thing that’s changed is she has a new lead designer.

Thomas: Yeah. And I– I’m really lucky to be here.

Ridge: Luck has nothing to do with it. You did the work. You worked on yourself. You worked on your craft, and… here we are. Son, I am so proud of you.

Thomas: You should be proud of hope too.

Ridge: Okay. I’m so proud of her too. She did what she did to save her line. She did everything she had to.

Thomas: It’s– it’s not just that, though. It’s not just her doing what she had to. Like, she, she… after everything I did, she… was able to forgive me and that’S…

Ridge: That’s what she does. She gives second chances. It’s nice.

Thomas: It’s not just what someone does. This is… after everything I did, that’s a new level of forgiveness. And I, I don’t know. Look, I… me being back, it can affect her marriage with liam.

Ridge: I think they’re fine.

Thomas: Maybe they are, but liam doesn’t trust me. He doesn’t have any reason–

Ridge: What are you doing right now? What is this? You should be over the moon. You just showed me these numbers. You should be doing backflips. Instead, you’re standing here doing… this. What’s going on?

[ Thomas grunts ]

Hope: Misbehaving? Steffy, this– this is an overreaction. You are reading too much into what you saw.

Steffy: Am I? I want to believe that’s the case.

Hope: It is.

Steffy: I hope to god it is. I hope you’re being honest with me and yourself. Thomas has been acting like a gentleman. He has been behaving himself. He has not crossed any lines with you. He is making strides in his life.

Hope: I know that. I have seen the work that he has done. I believe that he is a changed man.

Steffy: Yeah, he’s been fighting those demons and he’s winning. Why can’t you be sensitive to that?

Hope: I am. I am proud of him, steffy.

Steffy: Really? Because what I just walked in on, what I just saw, was you laying it on thick. You flirting with my brother. Saying all the things that you were saying, looking into his eyes, and caressing his hands. You were flirting with him. Wow, I can’t even believe I am saying this. Are you actually turning into your mother? My a1c was up here; now, it’s down with rybelsus.

Thomas: Has anyone ever told you you worry too much?

Ridge: All the time. I’m not worried about you. Not anymore.

Thomas: Really? You mean that?

Ridge: Oh, I mean that. It’s who you are. You, you did it. You fixed whatever the problem was. And you’re back. You’re a great father to your son. Your skills are improving all the time. And I don’t know that I’ve said it, and I’m gonna say it again. I’m gonna keep repeating it. I am so proud of you.

Thomas: You know I’m actually kind of proud of me too.

Ridge: Good! You should be! Because you earned this.

[ Sighs ] All right. If you ever need anybody, I hope you know this. If you ever need to talk to someone about anything, I’m here. I’ll listen. And I will give advice. If you ask for it.

Thomas: I, I appreciate that. I, um, I’ll keep that in mind.

Ridge: So where is hope? I want to congratulate her too.

Thomas: She’s over in the design office.

Ridge: She has to be so impressed with you.

Thomas: Yeah. You know, dad, um… I– I’m glad that hope has brought herself to forgiving me and, and the rest of the family is moving in that direction, but… it means the world to me that you are willing to give me another chance, and– and forgive me. And… I promise, I know that I’ve– I’ve done some dark things in the past, but, um… I am never gonna become that person again. You have my word.

Liam: I do actually appreciate your concern for hope. I do.

Taylor: Well, I appreciate hope’s capacity for forgiveness. She didn’t have to allow thomas to come back to be her lead designer, but she did.

Liam: Yeah. But she also didn’t forget about all the things that he’s done in the past, like none of us have.

Taylor: No, but… she was willing to trust that thomas wouldn’t revert to his old ways. And he hasn’T.

Liam: Yet. That we know of. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t or couldn’T. And if that does happen–

Taylor: If that happens, hope is gonna put a stop to it, and thomas will be gone. And thomas knows that. He could lose everything, and– and everyone that he loves. His career, everything. He’s not gonna allow that.

Liam: What if it’s not up to him, taylor? What if– what if the impulse is just too strong? What if he literally cannot help himself?

Taylor: What if he can? Therapy is giving him incredible coping skills. He is– he is healing through the very things that cause the triggers. And now he’s able to spot them as soon as they come up. Come on, liam. That is huge. Can you not see that?

Liam: Here’s what I see. I see, and I mean this, that the people who love him, are invested in his growth. And that’s a good thing. It means you and ridge and steffy all have confidence in him. And that’s your job. But my job is to stay on guard.

Taylor: Okay. But remember, hope is smart. Give her some credit. And try to– just try to believe that I– I would never want hope and thomas working so closely together if I wasn’t absolutely certain that thomas… wasn’t that old thomas.

[ Liam chuckles ]

Liam: You sound like steffy, actually. She said the same thing to me. She’s been trying to drill into my head that… that I have nothing to worry about when it comes to her brother and hope.

[ Sardonic chuckle ]

Steffy: You’re really turning into your mom.

Hope: What? No. No, steffy. And I think you’re making way too much of this.

Steffy: I know what I saw.

Hope: We were excited about the numbers. We were celebrating. And we did get caught up in the moment, steffy. But I love liam. My family and my marriage mean everything to me. Please do not interfere with that.

Steffy: I’m not. But if you’re developing feelings for my brother, I’m gonna have an issue with this.

Hope: Steffy, can you please just try to listen to me and see it from my point of view? Thomas and i have been working really hard on this line together. We have been spending a lot of hours together. We also share a son together. But that is it. That is where it stops. Liam is my husband. And I love him and I am committed to him. (Buzz) morning!

Liam: Well, steffy is right. But then again, steffy is always right. And don’t you forget it.

[ Liam chuckles ] Come on, if you could just..

Liam: Have the kind of faith in your son that you do?

Taylor: Well, I– I would never expect you to do that. No.

[ Chuckles ] I’m just asking for… just a modicum of faith. You know? Thomas can’t– can’t change what he did. But he can change the way that he does things from now on, and that’s exactly what he’s doing. The efforts he’s making are real. And hope sees that every day, we all do. Present company excluded. So what do you say? Think you can give him just a little benefit of the doubt?

[ Liam groaning ]

Liam: I want to believe you, taylor, for all our sakes. Especially hope’S. She’S… she’s a good person, you know? She’s– she’s kind, and compassionate and sincere.

Taylor: And smart.

Liam: And smart. Yes.

Taylor: Yes. And she forgave thomas. But she also put very firm boundaries in place. You have nothing to worry about, liam.

Hope: Working with you this time around, it’s been amazing. I mean, it’s like we are in sync on everything. It’s been magical. And now, I mean, there’s no limit to where we can take hope for the future.

Steffy: I want to believe you, hope. I never questioned your love for liam.

Hope: Then don’t start now.

Steffy: I have spoken to him. You asked me to do that, remember? He loves you so much.

Hope: Steffy, I know that.

Steffy: He’s been concerned about you and thomas. He trusts you. He just doesn’t trust thomas. But I think you’re the one he needs to be concerned about.

Hope: No, steffy. I am completely devoted to liam.

Steffy: And he is completely devoted to you. Do you realize how lucky you are? Liam is completely supportive and understanding. But if he were to walk in on what I just did, he would have freaked out.

Hope: Steffy, please… please don’t say a word to liam.

[ Steffy scoffs ] He’s already sensitive enough about thomas and me working together, and I swear to you, there is nothing going on between the two of us.

Steffy: Do you miss it?

Hope: Miss what?

Steffy: His affection for you.

Hope: How could you even ask such a thing? No. No, steffy. I love my husband. I love my family. They mean everything to me. So, please… don’t overreact to a situation that you are misunderstanding. Please do not tell anyone about this. I swear to you. There is– there’s nothing going on.

Steffy: Okay. So you’re telling me the truth. You have no feelings for thomas. None at all.

Hope: No.

Steffy: Good. Because you can’t be leading him on. Reigniting his obsession with you. I’m serious, hope. Do not lead thomas on. Or undermine the progrs my brother has made. I’ll be watching you.

Brooke: [ Sighs ] I– i haven’t been able to wipe this smile off my face since R.J. Came home.

Ridge: I know the feeling.

Brooke: I don’t think I let myself really feel how much I missed him.

Ridge: I get that, ’cause it, uh, it hurts too much, doesn’t it? But you gotta let ’em go. Let them be who they are.

Brooke: As opposed to who you want them to be, right? I can’t believe you’re actually saying that.

Ridge: I can’t believe you’re saying that. All I did was nudge him in what I think is the right direction. I got him to put pencil to paper, and he’s, uh– he’s talented.

Brooke: Show me. Oh! Uh-huh. That’s, uh– wow!

[ Chuckles ]

Ridge: What, you don’t think it looks like me?

Brooke: Uh, let’s see. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, it does, it looks just like you. That’s, uh– that’s what’s so funny.

[ Chuckles]

[ Sighs ] Mm.

Liam: So, I don’t know. I mean, assuming dad signs off on it, I think we could– we could finalize the deal in a matter of days.

Wyatt: Really? Yes! See? This is what I’m talking about. See how productive we can be when you actually show up to meetings?

Liam: Oh, my god. You’re just– you’re– you’re gonna hold that over my head forever. You’re just– okay, fine.

Wyatt: Pretty much, yeah.

Liam: I’m ready for it. No, it’s great. It’s great.

Wyatt: Hey, I do have a question for you, though.

Liam: Yeah.

Wyatt: What is happening with the thomas and hope situation? Any updates?

Thomas: Okay, so what do you think? Should we take the hemline up a little bit or do you wanna leave it where it is?

Hope: You know what? I think in order to show off the shoes, we should bring up the hemline in the front just a little.

Thomas: Of course, that was, um… that was my instinct as well.

[ Chuckling ]

Hope: Of course it was.

[ Chuckles ]

Petra: There’s no doubt, you two make magic together.

Steffy: I agree. Hope and thomas are great business partners.

Wyatt: Look, obviously, I know you’ve been struggling with the idea of hope working so closely with thomas.

Liam: Oh, I’m struggling? Have I been struggling? Like I’ve been struggling in school or like I struggle for the driver’s test–

Wyatt: I know.

Liam: That’s very diplomatic of you. I appreciate that.

Wyatt: I’m just wondering, is anything concerning happened?

Liam: Uh, concerning? Did–

Wyatt: Yes.

Liam: Not technically, but that doesn’t mean there’s not gonna be something. I mean, this is how thomas works, right? It’s like nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing. And then, oh my god, he was obsessed with hope the whole time, right? I just don’t– I don’t want her and douglas dealing with that again.

Wyatt: I feel for you, man. I’m– I’m sorry.

Liam: Well, don’t, because that’s who hope is and she’s very trusting and that’s one of the things I admire about her, and paradoxically, it also creates a huge blind spot, which is why I’m keeping my eyes peeled in her stead. Uh, make sure nobody takes advantage of it, including and especially “tom*S.”

Brooke: I– I must say, R.J. Really has talent. I mean, this is incredible. Look at how he’s captured your– your mannerisms. Your essence. Look at the hair! Oh, my gosh– no, no.

[ Laughing ] The hands. The hands!

[ Overlapping chatter ]

Taylor: Okay, okay, what is so funny?

Brooke: Oh, my gosh. Okay. I guess you better be careful what you wish for. Because ridge took a pencil and put it in R.J.’S hand, was hoping that he would deliver a brilliant design, and voila.

[ Laughing]

Taylor: Oh, it is– it is the spitting image.

Ridge: What are you laughing at? Why are you piling on? What– what’s happening?

Taylor: Because it’s so easy.

Brooke: Yes, it is.

Ridge: Okay well, I don’t even know why you’re here. Looking for thomas? He’s in a meeting with hope and steffy.

Taylor: I am actually looking for thomas, but okay, fine. I– I– I love that everyone is getting along. I– I love it. The three of us, our daughters. You know what? We’re finally acting like the extended family we should have been all along.

Brooke: Mm.

Taylor: Right?

Brooke: Yeah.

Hope: I don’t know. I still think maybe we should raise the waistline a little bit, you know, and make it more marketable to a broader audience?

Thomas: Yeah. Create a better silhouette. Okay. Yeah, great. Petra, thank you so much. You have been wonderful as usual.

Petra: You should see me after work. Really, though. Any time.

Thomas: I’ll remember that.

[ Hope clearing throat ]

Steffy: Well, congratulations, both of you. Looks like hope for the future is back on track. Hopefully that will be reflected when the preorders are released today.

Hope: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I’m kinda nervous about that.

Thomas: Not me. We’re gonna kill it.

Hope: Well, of course you aren’t, you weren’t here when hope for the future was in a downward spiral. And believe me when I tell you, it was not fun. But luckily you’re back now. You’ve given new life to the line and I couldn’t be more grateful. (Buzz) morning!

Wyatt: I mean, I gotta hand it to him. Deacon has done a great job with this place. I mean, this pizza is phenomenal.

Liam: Totally. And vegetarian.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Liam: It’s still good. Right?

Wyatt: All right, it’s okay.

Liam: Mm-hmm.

Wyatt: I think deacon’s surprising a lot of people lately.

Liam: Yeah. But not hope. Because she always believed in her dad and she’s all too happy to rub in our faces that she was right about him.

Wyatt: Yeah. Well, let’s just hope that she’s right about thomas and that he’s got a handle on things. You know what I mean? But I do think it’s a good idea to keep a watchful eye on him.

Liam: I went and talked to him.

Wyatt: What?

Liam: Yeah.

Wyatt: What did he say?

Liam: Uh, what did he say? What do you think he said? He– he admitted that he’s made mistakes in the past but he’s not that guy anymore. He’s been working on himself. He’s a changed man. He’s definitely, definitely, definitely not obsessed with hope. And I don’t have to worry. You know, it’s all that.

Wyatt: So, you believe him.

[ Liam snorts, giggles ]

Taylor: You know, this is kind of like a– a dawn of a new era. Both our families standing together, supporting each other.

Brooke: Well, what makes me happy is that our daughters followed in our footsteps and ended their rivalry. Maybe they’ll become best friends, like we are.

Taylor: Wouldn’t that be something?

Brooke: It would.

[ Chuckling]

Ridge: I guess that makes you guys trailblazers, right? Because our families are finally together and not fighting anymore.

Taylor: And you know what? I– I know that you don’t fully believe in thomas yet, but I think in time you will. He really is in a good place.

Brooke: I hope he is. For your sakes, as his parents, and for– for hope, too. She has invested a lot in thomas.

Thomas: Hope, I– I can’t tell you how much your faith and your belief in me has meant. It’s incredible. After everything that I did. I hurt you and your mom and I even brought our son into it, and it– it pains me that I did that, but I did and… you somehow were able to see past that and see a future that didn’t involve thomas becoming that person, but being a much better person, and you granted me this opportunity to come back and help design for this line, which I love so much and I know means so much to you. And I just– thank you for that.

Hope: Thomas, you have to stop thanking me. I mean, you’re doing it basically every time you put a pen to a piece of paper and create a new design. But that, that’s you. That’s all you. I mean, thomas, this collection wouldn’t be the same without you, and we know that’s the truth. Uh, look, I think those preorder numbers are in right now, so I’m gonna go check on them.

Thomas: Okay, hold on. Hold on.

[ Chuckles ] You don’t need to cross your fingers. It’s all gonna work out, I promise.

Hope: Okay.

Thomas: What?

Steffy: You are just doing an amazing job, you really are. And I can see that you are turning your life around. Um…

Thomas: It seems like there’s a “but” coming.

Steffy: I just watch you and hope working together. I see how devoted you are to the success of hope for the future, and I know you’ve been focused on it for months, working with hope to save the line.

Thomas: That’s the goal.

Steffy: Yeah, but what about the personal side? I love you, thomas. So, I have to ask. Are you still fixated on hope?

[Bones cracking]

Liam: Listen, the fact of the matter is thomas has shown us all, more than once, how unstable he is. And I just– I don’t– I don’t know, I don’t want hope getting caught up in all the crazy.

Wyatt: But she’s still, like, on the lookout, right? Even though she’s given him the benefit of the doubt.

Liam: Yes. And I– I’m just– I’m just trying to practice letting that be enough. You know, let– letting her exercise her own judgment. It’s just difficult because I– I know how manipulative thomas can be, you know?

Wyatt: Not to mention the blind spot that you were talking about earlier.

Liam: There you go.

Wyatt: Look, man. I get it, all right? Hope’s your wife and your first instinct is to just protect her. Right? But I just want you to be careful. I don’t want you to talk too much about thomas when you’re spending time with hope.

Liam: I will say this. Hope has been working pretty hard to make sure that doesn’t happen. Like, as– as many hours as she’s been putting in–

Wyatt: Yeah?

Liam: She’s consciously carved out time for just the two of us. Her and me, husband and wife.

Wyatt: That’s– that’s great. Love it.

Liam: It’s– it’s been really nice. I– truth is, I don’t know what I did to deserve a woman like hope.

Taylor: Well, it means a lot that you’re willing to see thomas differently. You know, he just– he just wants to make everything right.

Ridge: And I think he is, right? He’s making some really good choices. Personally and professionally. I mean, his– his designs are great. Just full of positivity, right?

Taylor: Yes. Yes. It makes me feel so proud. It makes us proud as parents. And I think in time, thomas is gonna earn your trust, too, just like he did hope’S.

Brooke: That would make me very happy. And so far so good. He seems to be making changes. Let’s just hope it sticks.

Taylor: Oh. I think it will, I really do. He’s doing the work. He healed his relationship with you. He healed his relationship with steffy. That’s a lot. And now steffy and thomas are– are back to annoying each other on a daily basis as it should be.

[ Both chuckling ]

Steffy: Look, I’m not accusing you of anything.

Thomas: I get it. I appreciate your concern.

Steffy: Really?

Thomas: Really. Look, I– I’ve been going to therapy. I’ve been working on myself and digging through the– the darkness in my past, which led to my behavior. And I’m keeping my priorities straight this time. ‘Kay?

Steffy: Yeah. It certainly seems that way.

Thomas: It is. I mean, every morning I wake up, I have all these designs that just are flooding my brain and I have to get them out onto paper. You know, that’s my focus. And then also, you know, being a great dad to douglas is the most important thing in the world and being a good son to mom and dad, and being a great brother to you. Look, I’m– I’m not thinking about hope, and honestly, if she even threw herself at me, I would say no. Not that she would ever do that.

Steffy: No, that wouldn’t happen.

Thomas: No. [ Chuckles ] That’s what I said. It’s just– just a joke.

Steffy: Too soon, bro. Too soon.

Thomas: Okay, fine, fine. It was too soon. I’m sorry. But look, I promise I have all of my priorities straight and I’m in control of my life. You got no reason to worry.

Steffy: Okay.

Thomas: [ Chuckles ] Okay, come on.

Steffy: Okay.

[ Sighs ] Thank god. (Lucky) uh-oh the magic’s disappearing!

Thomas: Get the preorder numbers yet?

Hope: Yep.

Thomas: No, hope, no, no, it can’t be. Are– okay. All right. You know what? Um, I take full responsibility for everything. All right? We’ll– we’ll start over from the ground up, brand new designs.

Hope: Thomas, the numbers weren’t good.

Thomas: I’m getting that.

Hope: They were great.

Thomas: Are you– you joking?

Hope: Off the charts!

Thomas: Why would you– why would–

Hope: Exceeded our expectations! I don’t know, I couldn’t resist. I couldn’t resist.

Thomas: I’m so happy for you.

Hope: No, you should be happy for yourself. I mean, thomas, this comeback wouldn’t have happened without you.

Thomas: No, no, no, it was a team effort.

Hope: Well, yes, but you led that team, thomas. I mean, eric, zende, ridge, those– those are amazing designers, but it never was successful because no one has understood me the way that you do. I mean, working with you this time around, it’s been– it’s been amazing. I mean, it’s like we are in sync on everything. It’s been magical. And now, I mean, there’s no limit to where we can take hope for the future.

Thomas: You’re my inspiration. You know, it’s like it’s– it’s going from your head through these hands, out into the world.

Hope: Well, thank goodness for these hands, then.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Heartbeat thudding ] And thank goodness for you. Thank you for seeing me.

[ Thudding continues ]

[ Thudding fades ]

Thomas: Yeah, I’m so excited. This– this is just the beginning for hope for the future. Yeah, I’m excited for the journey ahead.

Hope: Me, too.

Thomas: Okay, I gotta head across the hall and grab something. Congratulations.

Hope: Back at you.

[ Chuckling ]

Hope: It’s been amazing.

I mean, it’s like we are

in sync on everything.

It’s been magical and now,

I mean,

there’s no limit to where we

can take hope for the future.

[ Door closes ]

Hope: Steffy. Hey, I didn’t realize you were still here.

Steffy: It looks like you were, uh, lost in thought.

Hope: Well, the preorder numbers are in.

Steffy: Yeah, I heard. I saw.

Hope: Saw?

Steffy: Look, my parents and I, we’ve been, uh, very proud of thomas. Obviously, his obsession with you led him to very dark places. But he rose above it. And we thought we could trust you and thomas to be able to work together without it having a bad effect on him.

Hope: And you’ve been right.

Steffy: Absolutely right about thomas. He’s changed. I see that. He realizes what he’s done with you was inappropriate and I know he won’t do that again. What I didn’t know, which I– I never would’ve thought, is that it would… it would be you.

Hope: Me?

Steffy: Yeah. Flirting with thomas.

Hope: What?

Steffy: I saw you, hope. You were looking right in thomas’s eyes, laying it on pretty thick.

Hope: All right, it’s not what you think–

Steffy: I know what I saw. I will not let you derail thomas.

Hope: Steffy, I would never try to–

Steffy: I can’t even believe we’re actually having this conversation. Things were going so well for all of us. Our moms are actually getting along. Thomas finally sees his full potential as a designer and a father. I will not allow you or anyone else to set him back. Do you hear me? So, I’m gonna ask you and ask you once. Do you have feelings for thomas? Hope, I want the truth. Do you have feelings for my brother?

Ridge: Let’s see what you can do. Son, to everybody else, this right here… is nothing, just blank page, right? To us, this is the idea of possibilities, endless possibilities. This is a door we can open, a door to life, right?

Rj: Dad. No, dad, I–

Ridge: No, listen, you were given something. You’re given this incredible gift and grandad has it, he gave it to me, you guys have it. But it doesn’t land in the same place for everybody else. I need to know where it landed with you. Let me see it.

Thomas: What?

Hope: Nothing, it’s just, uh, your creative energy.

Thomas: Well, I just had an idea, had to get it out on the paper, you know? Is– is it too much?

Hope: [ Laughs ] No, never too much. It’s, um, good. I mean, your– your passion is lighting up this entire office. It’s nice to see you in your element again. I’m just happy it’s with me– with hope for the future.

[ Laughs softly ]

Count boucie: You got a nice little establishment here, mr. Sharpe. But obviously, it’s missing something.

Deacon: Let me guess, that something would be you?

Count boucie: Well, you know, right now it’s a nice restaurant, but as a level two sommelier from napa valley and a sommelier to the stars, I can turn il giardino into the “it” restaurant it’s longing to be.

Deacon: “It” restaurant?

Count boucie: The most talked-about, trendsetting, highest reviewed, the best, if you will. Just say the word and count boucie will snap into action.

Orville: Yes!

Deacon: Well, count, your name does convey quite a bit of gravitas. Uh, what’s your background?

Count boucie: Well, I was named after the great count basie, the king of swing.

Deacon: So that makes you the king of sommeliers.

Count boucie: King, perhaps. Count? Most definitely.

[ Laughs ]

Thomas: Thank you for that. You made me feel like I’m alive, you know? It’s almost like my– I’ve been reborn.

Hope: Like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Thomas: That’s actually not a bad idea for a design. See? You always never stop inspiring me, it’s– it’s– it’s impressive and you just– you want me to be the best I possibly can be, and you encourage me to do that and– and it means so much, so I’m just– I’m in your debt, hope.

Ridge: You say you’re not interested in design, you don’t want to be part of this company. I get it, I hear you. But it’s in your blood, you can’t deny it. So maybe, just take this pencil, and just maybe, you could surprise yourself. Maybe this is it, maybe this is your true calling, to be here with us. I said, I see it

Deacon: I– I– I gotta tell you, count, you got me thinking, you got me intrigued. All right, tell me about your experience.

Count boucie: My experience?

Deacon: Yeah, you know, uh, who you worked for or where you worked?

Count boucie: Well, the list is long and plentiful. I’ve been requested by some of the most influential people in the world. Movie stars, athletes, politicians, royalty?

Deacon: Wow, so maybe tell me about the last person you worked for.

Count boucie: I’m not apt to kiss and tell, mr. Sharpe. One of the hallmarks of an a-list sommelier is discretion, but my reputation led me here, did it not?

Deacon: You know, actually, I– I thought it was my listing.

Orville: Grandpa?

Count boucie: Uh, I’m working right now, just relax.

Orville: But grandpa, I’m hungry.

Deacon: Well, hey, if you’re hungry, guess what? You’re in the right place.

Orville: What do you mean?

Deacon: What do I mean? I– I tell you what. You tell me what you want to eat and I’m gonna have somebody bring you a plate of whatever it is. How’s that sound?

Orville: Do you have corn?

Deacon: Corn? What, are you kidding me, man? I got fields of corn!

Ridge: Give it a shot, there’s no pressure.

Rj: Yeah, you know just ’cause you say “no pressure” doesn’t mean there is no pressure, right?

Ridge: That’s exactly what it means, there’s no pressure. I don’t care if you do this for a living or not, I just want to see what you’re capable of.

Charlie: Sorry for the intrusion.

Ridge: What is it, charlie?

Charlie: I just wanted you to know that I just finished scaling back all that extra security we had when sheila was the big problem.

Ridge: Okay, do you remember having a conversation where I told you that things like that can be sent in an email? Maybe a note left on pam’s desk? You don’t have to run in here like the building’s on fire.

Charlie: Gee, who– who curdled the big cheese?

[ Laughs ] See what I did there? It’s like a metaphorical image, joke, “curdled cheese”? Get– get it? See?

Rj: Yeah, yep, I got it, thanks. I, uh– I think dad was just, uh, interrupted in the middle of a heartwarming plea to get me to follow in his footsteps.

Charlie: Oh.

Ridge: That’s– that’s not what I’m doing at all, I’m sorry and I’m– what I wanted was for you to take the pencil and let nature do the rest. Because my first design, the first time I ever did this, I remember it like it was yesterday. It’s a big wave that came over me, and it was incredible, and I– I will never forget it. I just thought, if this is something that you may wanna do, that you should have that same euphoric, life-changing moment, that’s all.

Charlie: I know– I know exactly what you mean. I get the exact same feeling every time I go skinny dipping. I mean, a couple of laps in the buff every morning has given me two things. It made me, one, a better protector, and two, it made my neighbor build a higher fence.

Ridge: Make a statement. You can do it.

Hope: I’m proud of you, thomas. All the growth you’ve been showing? It’s been reflecting in your work as well.

Thomas: Really?

Hope: Yeah. Come on, you don’t have to do the pretend humility thing with me, I know you know you’re good.

Thomas: I may be aware. But I– I will say something that I didn’t know. Honestly, I– I had no idea if, uh, the new-and-improved thomas would actually be any good.

Hope: What do you mean?

Thomas: Look, I… I realize this now after putting myself through therapy and digging into this stuff, but in the past, I– I took all of my frustration, my anger, and– and that’s what fuelled me and made me put pen to paper. Very “rage against the machine,” right? And, now, uh, I– I don’t do that anymore and there was a time where I thought I would have no idea if what would come out would actually be of any substance, or good.

Hope: Well, I don’t think you have to worry, thomas, because your designs are on a whole other level now.

Thomas: That’s ’cause of you. You have inspired me from the beginning, but you used to inspire me in a different way, and now, you inspire me with… love. And that is what fuels me and I wake up every morning now with– with all of these designs flowing through my mind and it’s like– it’s a freedom that I have never experienced.

Hope: Peace.

Thomas: Exactly.

Hope: I think it’s evident that you have finally found peace within yourself. And it’s made you not only a better designer, but a better father and a better man as well. Need relief for tired, achy feet?

Deacon: Uh– uh, mr.–

Count boucie: Shh, I’m still reading.

Deacon: Yeah, I– I was just gonna say, if there are any changes you think that I need to make–

Count boucie: Oh, there’ll be changes made if we make this deal.

Deacon: Okay. Uh, oh, great, thank you. All right, here you go. Look at this– you got pizza, you got french fries, and good old california corn.

Orville: I love corn.

[ Deacon laughs ]

Deacon: You know, your grandfather’s a count, so who knows? Maybe some day, you’ll become a colonel. Get it? Kernel? Ah, I guess it was kinda corny, wasn’t it? Count, what can I say, I’m impressed. But there’s only one way to find out you’re as good as you think you are. So, I’m gonna put you to the test.

Count boucie: A test?

Deacon: Yep, blind taste-test. I’m gonna ask you to please leave the room, I’m gonna pour three glasses of wine and I want you to tell me what region they’re from. Sound good?

Count boucie: Brilliant.

Deacon: Mm.

Orville: Corn rules, man.

Ridge: Let it out, son. Trust your instincts.

Charlie: Oh, the suspense is killing me.

Ridge: Anything else I can do for you, charlie?

Charlie: No, thanks.

Ridge: ‘Cause my son and i were having a very important moment.

Charlie: Oh, I know, and I– and I– it is an honor for me to be here, to protect you from any interruptions.

[ Laughs ]

Charlie: I guess I’m the interruption, huh? I– well, you know, I was just– you know what? [ Stuttering ] I’m gonna get out of here and– and leave it. Good luck over there!

Ridge: Charlie!

Charlie: Yeah, all right… good luck, rj!

Ridge: Finished? May I?

Rj: Sure.

Ridge: Really?

Rj: Well, what? You said to draw what inspires you.

Ridge: This– this is what you learned? This? Really? You–

[ Grunts ] All right, very cute. Very cute.

Rj: Thank you, I try.

[ Door opens ]

Thomas: Hot out of the sewing room.

Hope: Oh, this is my favorite part– getting to see our designs come to life.

Thomas: Drumroll, please.

[ Drumming on legs ]

[ Hope gasps ]

Hope: Oh, my gosh, thomas! It’s extraordinary, it’s exactly how we envisioned!

Thomas: I know, it’s beautiful. I– I really wanna see it up and moving, but sadly, we don’t have any models coming in ’til later.

Hope: I can try it on.

Thomas: You sure?

Hope: Yes, it’s fine, I mean, I’m just as anxious as you are to see this design in all its glory!

Thomas: Awesome, thank you!

Hope: All right.

Brooke: Thomas,

he is a bad boy, and you,

my sweet, precious daughter,

you don’t like the bad boys.

Unlike your mother.


Deacon: All right. One of these is french, one is italian, one is californian. Oh, count boucie! We’re ready for you! Please. Okay, so here’s the deal. You’re gonna take a taste from each glass, you’re gonna tell me what region it’s from. One is french, one is italian, one is californian. Should be easy for a guy of your talent.

Count boucie: Delightful! Hmm.

Deacon: All right, count, game time. Italian? French? Or californian?

Count boucie: French!

Deacon: Well done. Next?

Count boucie: Italian.

Count boucie: California like the beach boys.

Deacon: Well, look, you obviously know your stuff, I can’t dispute that.

Count boucie: Well, not only do I know my wine, but I can also charm your customers into buying more product and make you a ton of money! Sound like a plan?

Deacon: All right, all right, yeah, I’m digging it, okay? I am. Let me– let me think about it, but I promise you, I’m gonna get back to you. I really am impressed. Thanks a lot, count. Orville, it was a pleasure meeting you.

Ridge: I don’t really look like this, do I? Come on.

Rj: No, what? No. Not at all.

Ridge: Uh-huh. You’re funny. It shows me how talented you are.

Rj: Thank you, dad, it means a lot coming from someone as accomplished as you.

Ridge: Everyone dreams, you know. There’s only a few of us, a few fortunate people that can take that dream and make it into something that the whole world can experience.

Rj: Dad, that’s exactly what I want to do. I– I know that I can draw, that I can create. I mean, come on, you had me doing this when I was younger, too. I don’t want to design dresses. And please don’t take that as a jab, I love everything about forrester creations. I’m– I’m proud of the work everyone here does. But especially you. I mean, I– I just– I– I want to do my own thing, you know? And build my brand.

Ridge: As an influencer?

Rj: Yes, dad, as an influencer. You know I can hear the disapproval in your voice?

Ridge: That’s not– that’s not– no, it’s just not a career, you know?

Rj: You sound old.

Ridge: I am old! You drew an old man!

[ Laughs ]

Rj: I know, I’M… you know, I didn’t draw that just to be funny. You said to draw what inspires you, and that’s you, dad. You inspire me. I just– I really don’t want to disappoint you, okay? I have to build my own future.

Ridge: I know, come here, I’m not disappointed in you, come here. I love you.

Rj: I love you, too.

Brooke: And you,

my sweet, precious daughter,

you don’t like the bad boys.

Hope: I’m ready!

Thomas: ‘Kay. Wow! Come here. Careful, don’t want to have you fall like last time.

Hope: [ Laughs ] Yeah.

Thomas: Wow. This is great. Uh, do you mind?

Hope: Oh, yeah, sure, sure.

Thomas: ‘Kay. Okay.

[ Hope clears throat ] Is everything okay?

Hope: Yeah, yeah, I’m just… excited about the design.

Thomas: ‘Kay, yeah, I mean, me too, this is– the only thing is, I think I wanna change the hem a little bit, but other than that, it’s– it’s great. This is remarkable.

Hope: What is?

Thomas: Well, the dress, but also, um, the fact that we’re able to work together like this and you can finally trust me.

Brooke: There’s no denying that I’ve always desired the wrong man. Glad you’re not like me that way.

[ Relaxing music ]

Eric: Look who’s here. Well, it appears that, uh, ridge was able to talk you into coming into the office.

Rj: Well, of course, he promised me lunch with you, granddad.

Ridge: You know, I thought we could bring our favorite influencer to our favorite take-out restaurant, see what he thinks. If he likes it, he can tell his friends and his followers can blow it up.

Rj: Hey, if we do that, you’ll probably never be able to get another order in.

Ridge: That’s a good point. Let’s not do that.

Eric: You know, ridge junior seems to be just about as popular as you were at his age.

Ridge: Easy, almost.

Rj: Hey, hey, hey, hey, neither of us are as big a deal as you are, granddad.

Eric: I’m glad you realize that. It’s good to see you, welcome back.

Rj: Good to see you too.

Ridge: Couldn’t agree more.

Rj: Thanks, dad.

Thomas: You know, zende suggested that we do thicker braiding.

Hope: To give it more structure.

Thomas: Yeah, but I’m thinking maybe just on the sides.

Hope: Yeah, so it doesn’t–

Both: Break up the flow.

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: I swear, thomas, sometimes you can read my mind.

Daniele: Well, I have to congratulate you, deacon. You’re doing an amazing business over here.

Deacon: Oh, thank you, chef daniele. I gotta tell you, it means a lot coming from a world-renowned chef like yourself.

Daniele: Well, you know, I have to be honest. When I sold the restaurant to you, I was a little bit nervous, but il giardino is a hit. Well done, deacon.

Deacon: I gotta say, our clientele, they expect a lot.

Daniele: But the pizza must be perfect.

Deacon: Mm-hmm. Oh.

Daniele: Look at that.

Deacon: Yes. This is amazing. So much flavor in the crust and the– the texture. How do you do this?

Daniele: When you have a lot of business, you turn up the heat.

Deacon: So cook it faster.

Danielle: No, no, no longer. Slower and longer.

Deacon: Longer.

Danielle: Yes. A drop in 15 degrees temperature, it will make the crust go puffier, airier, crispier. Look at that.

Deacon: Well, if it tastes as good as this one, I’m gonna have to hire a bouncer to handle the lines outside.

Daniele: Cheers this.

Deacon: Yeah. Mm. So good.

Deacon: All right, enough pasta.. I’m gonna eat this whole damn pie. Chef, I just want to thank you so much for– for putting your faith in me, for your wisdom and your guidance. You’re the best.

Daniele: Well, my mom in naples was the best. She taught me. I’m teaching you and look at you, deacon, you’re a success. Good job.

Deacon: Well, I hope so. I mean, I got a long way to go, but uh, I’ll tell you I wouldn’t mind making a little more money.

Hope: Where is that sketch that you were showing me earlier? The one you were working on?

Thomas: Uh, this one?

Hope: Oh, yes. Oh, it turned out so great. I love that you brought the pattern all the way down. I mean, it really helps the way that it–

Thomas: The way that it drapes.

Hope: Exactly.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: You know, thomas, no one does casual sophistication the way that you do.

Thomas: Hey, that’s the heart and soul of california fashion, right? And that’s what forrester creations is known for. But we always do it with a little bit of an unexpected twist.

Hope: Um, segue, uh, speaking of unexpected twists, have you seen much of rj since he’s been back?

Charlie: Oh, well, you look at this. What do we have here? We’ve got double trouble. Right here at our stage. We got ridge senior and ridge junior. Welcome.

Rj: Hey, charlie. Do you have that, uh, new badge for me?

Charlie: Yeah, I– yeah, I, but you know, we need to redo the picture because your I would– it’s on pammy’s desk.

Ridge: It’s a good thing to have. You’re gonna come in every day. You should have one.

Charlie: What? What? That’s great. Welcome aboard rj.

Rj: No, no, not quite, charlie.

Eric: Maybe, uh, maybe someday.

Rj: I mean, if I was working here, it would give me more time to hang out with the coolest guy I know.

Charlie: Oh, stop.

Eric: It’s me.

Ridge: Well, here we are. Finally got you back here from halfway across the world. Now, just gotta figure out how to keep you. People call it the biggest smalltown festival in minnesota.

Daniele: You want to make more money, deacon?

Deacon: Doesn’t everybody? Which is why I’m gonna be hiring a new wine sommelier. And as a matter of fact, I should have one coming any minute.

Daniele: That’s a great idea.

Deacon: You know, il giardino is a classy place. We gotta– we gotta lean into that, you know. Really step it up, find somebody who knows what they’re doing, with some flair, with some sprezzatura. You know, that’s– that’s where you really make the money.

Daniele: Of course, I agree on that. But remember, people come in for the food. Freshest ingredients from the farmers’ market. The local produce is everything. That’s what people come in–

Deacon: No, I get it. I get it. I mean, if I don’t do those things right, all the flash in the world isn’t gonna make a difference.

Daniele: Well, you are my friend.

Deacon: Oh, come on, you gotta go so soon?

Daniele: Yes, I’m off, my friend.

Deacon: Oh, chef daniele, thank you so much for everything. For your advice, your friendship. Don’t be a stranger, okay?

Daniele: I won’T. Remember, keep up the quality and the money will come, my friend. Ciao.

Deacon: Ciao. Money, money, money, money, money. Show me the money!

Boucie: Did somebody just say my favorite word? Money!

Rj: So, tell me about the hot new takeout place.

Ridge: Dad, let me ask you something. Why is it every time I bring up work, this one changes the subject?

Charlie: Well, uh, lunch will unfortunately have to wait. Uh, the big boss has a meeting.

Ridge: No, my schedule’s clear.

Charlie: Nah, nah, nah, nah, no, the O.G. Big boss. The original uh, big, in this case, the original granddaddy big boss, this guy, him.

Ridge: Excuse me.

Eric: Yeah, thanks for the reminder. I appreciate it, charlie. It’s a video conference. It shouldn’t take too long.

Ridge: Why don’t you take it here?

Rj: Yeah, I– I can help you with the lighting, the background.

Eric: You know, actually I have the ring light and the tripods set up just down the hall, so I’ll do that.

Rj: Wow, I’m impressed.

Eric: Well, I have an influencer friend who gave me some tips, you know. I know how to do this.

Rj: Well, it’s nice to know I have at least one big time celebrity follower.

Eric: I’m proud of you. I’ll be right back.

Rj: All right.

Ridge: Well, there you go. The forrester men, now they know how to put on a show. Your granddad taught me, but it turns out no one had to teach you. You know all this stuff already. You know what? That kind of knowledge could come in very handy around here.

Thomas: You know, when you asked me back to hope for the future, I vowed to do it right this time. Because that’s what you and the company needed from me, and douglas too. Total commitment. And that’s how this company started, you know. Granddad was totally committed to what he was doing and I’m gonna be that and more. I’m gonna take hope for the future beyond anything forrester creations has ever done.

Hope: Yeah. Well, we hit a slump when we could least afford to have one and things looked pretty bleak, but thanks to your help, we were able to turn things around.

Thomas: Thrilled to do it.

Hope: Yeah, I just wanna make sure though that you don’t get so caught up in this, that you don’t have any time for yourself, or to spend with douglas.

Thomas: Oh, I promise that’s not gonna happen. And we had so much fun at the game last weekend.

Hope: Remind me again, how many hot dogs did you let that boy eat? Was it?

Thomas: Uh, not as many as me. Look, I promise it wasn’t as many as me. And uh, and I also– gosh, we had– we always have fun when we’re together, but um, I– I did let him know that obviously you and I are just really busy right now.

Hope: That is true. And I guess that answers my question from earlier, about rj. I mean, I know you saw him when he first got home, but I’m guessing you haven’t had any time to spend with him since?

Thomas: Not really. Honestly, we just haven’t crossed paths or had a chance to connect.

Hope: So, you haven’t been avoiding rj at all? And I’m just curious about how you really feel about rj being back. That’s all. She’s feeling the power of listerine.

Boucie: Might you be deacon sharpe, the proprietor of this fine dining establishment?

Deacon: Ah, yeah. And you are?

Boucie: Count boucie, master sommelier to the stars and the answer to all your dreams. It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance fine, sir.

Deacon: Uh, yeah. Pleasure’s mine. Who’s this?

Boucie: Uh, that’s my grandson.

Orville: Hi.

Deacon: Hi.

Boucie: I hope it’s all right that I brought him along.

Deacon: Yeah, no problem.

Orville: Gramps, I’m hungry.

Boucie: Ah, we’ll get something to eat in a little while. Just go sit down and–

Orville: But gramps, I’m hungry.

Boucie: Just sit down. We’ll be right with you.

Deacon: I’m guessing you saw my ad for a wine expert?

Boucie: And count boucie is the man you are looking for.

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Thomas: How do I feel about rj being back? I think it’s great.

Hope: Okay. I wasn’t sure.

Thomas: Well, I mean, I know that dad and brooke really missed him.

Hope: Well, so have I.

Thomas: You understand why he stayed away though, right? He just wanted to avoid the family drama.

Hope: Yeah, but he knows we’re past that now.

Thomas: Yeah, he does.

Hope: Yeah, I mean, I’ve been updating him on everything. I mean, mom and taylor are being besties now. Bill helping ridge put sheila back in jail. I mean, douglas is home. He knows we’re on better terms now.

Thomas: Yeah. Everything seems kind of copacetic, doesn’t it?

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: Let’s hope it stays that way.

Thomas: I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’T.

Hope: Wow, that is good to hear. I just know that I’m thrilled that rj is back home, in los angeles, but I understand if your feelings are a little more complicated, nuanced, complex.

Rj: You know, I’m not kidding. Grandpa is 100% a-list.

Ridge: Ha. He would love to hear you say that. And it’s great to see him so happy with donna too.

Ridge: Yeah. Well, you know, those logan women bring it out in the forrester men.

Rj: Oh, yeah. And vice versa.

Ridge: Well, it’s working for them.

Rj: But not you and mom?

Ridge: Listen, your mom and I, we– we have some great memories and we created you. This incredible kid.

Rj: Well, it’s great that she’s in a happier place now.

Ridge: It is great.

Rj: You look happy too.

Ridge: Of course, I’m happy, you’re back. I mean, your mom and I, we couldn’t be happier.

Rj: Well, I mean, I’m– I think the whole truce with taylor plays a part in it too, right?

Ridge: Yeah. No, I’m sure it does. And– and if I had known that that was a possibility, I would have encouraged it years ago.

Rj: Well, you know, from what I’ve heard, it definitely sounds like you, uh, played a part in making it happen, so.

Ridge: Really? You’re gonna do that?

Rj: Yeah.

Ridge: So you came back just to rub it in. Is that it?

Rj: No, dad. I– I’m just, I’m– I’m just curious, you know what’s going on between you and mom?

Deacon: Uh, so you’re a count?

Boucie: Uh, at your service.

Deacon: And a wine sommelier?

Boucie: Not any wine sommelier.

Deacon: All right, you– you service the stars.

Boucie: Uh, you inquired about said services. You won’t find anybody better than count boucie. I have an exceptional wine mind and a distinguished palate. Give me a chance and uh, I’ll prove it to you.

Deacon: Um. Oh.

Hope: I just get it, okay? It’s your baby half-brother rj. I understand if there are some competitive feelings there.

Thomas: He, look, he hasn’t been around in a long time and it may take us a minute to– to reconnect, but I don’t see him as competition. And also– oh yeah, I– I– I look, I promise. I– I meant what I said. I’m glad that he’s back and if he wants to come and work here, I will make him feel welcome.

Hope: Of course, you would.

Thomas: Look, I am glad that he’s back, but more than me, I think that your mom and my dad are really glad that he’s back.

Ridge: What did you ask me? You asked me how things are between me and your mom? Was that it?

Rj: No, if you don’t want to talk about it–

Ridge: No, it’s not that I don’t wanna talk about it. I just– I’d appreciate it if you’re not gonna play matchmaker.

Rj: No, dad. Come on, I’m not gonna do that.

Ridge: Well, we’ve already had it, right? Steffy and thomas, they wanted me back with their mom and that didn’t work out well.

Rj: Yeah, well, thomas did a little more than he should have. But like I said, I don’t wanna get involved in any family drama.

Ridge: Well, I think that’s wise.

Rj: Thanks.

Ridge: And as far as your mom and me, we’re um, I don’t know. We’re just chilling.

Rj: Chilling.

Ridge: Yeah, chilling. We’re just gonna leave it alone for now.

Rj: Right. ‘Cause you’re so good at that. Come on, dad. I know what you’re like when you set your mind on something, talk to me, talk to me.

Ridge: Now, that’s another forrester trait that you were given.

Rj: Yeah, it’s an invaluable one, as long as we’re not butting heads.

Ridge: We’re not, right? We’re not butting heads.

Rj: No, no, no, not us.

Ridge: You know why? ‘Cause I’m glad that you’re here. I’m– I’m so happy to see you and so impressed with the man that you’ve become. The man that– that you’re becoming. I need to talk about the future a little bit and it’s not, there’s no pressure here. It’s just– it’s what I told granddad, you know. You’re– you’re talented and you– you– you have, um, you have this passion and understanding for something.

Rj: And– and I’m– I’m using it.

Ridge: Yeah, I know you’re using it. Yes, you are. You’re traveling, you’re seeing the world, you’re– you’re– you’re living your best life and I love that. But you were given something. You were given a gift. I don’t know if it started with your granddad, I think it did, but he gave it to me. He gave it to thomas, you have it. It’s a gift to create beauty. And I see it in you. I see it in your work, I see it in your videos, your art. You look at– at the world in a– in a– in a very unique way and whatever you see, you find a way to– to make it tangible for everybody. I need you to do something for me. I need you to show me. No, I don’t, I– no, you don’t need to show me because I already know. You need to show yourself because I’m convinced you could be the greatest designer that forrester has ever seen.

[ Relaxing music ]

Finn: Hey, I came home from the hospital as soon as I could. Glad you survived your visit with sheila.

Steffy: She’s in prison, finn, we don’t have to be afraid anymore.

Finn: Still. I was just… I was worried about you.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: How’d it go?

Steffy: It was incredible. It was everything I needed and more, just being able to see her squirm behind bars where she belongs.

Sheila: Well, there must have been a part of you that was happy to hear from me, or else you wouldn’t be here. I’m right. Aren’t I, jack? You’re as lonely as I am. Okay, wait, stop. Just stop. I needed to see you because you criminal defense attorneys in all of california. I need you to help me, jack.

Bill: I want our life back.

Wyatt: Hey, we didn’t see katie’s car in the driveway. I– I thought she was staying over for lunch.

Liam: Yeah.

Bill: She just left.

Wyatt: Already?

Bill: Yeah.

Wyatt: Oh, no, I’m sorry.

Liam: Didn’t go the way you hoped, huh? Shoot.

Carter: Look who’s back.

[ Katie sighing contentedly ]

Katie: Yeah. Sorry about the late lunch. Wouldn’t wanna upset my handsome C.O.O.

Carter: C.O.O. Understands that unpredictable circumstances come up from time to time.

Katie: Yeah, unpredictable.

Carter: So, how’d it go with bill?

Bill: Who says I struck out?

Liam: Uh, no, well, j– just figured since, you know, katie already left.

Bill: Okay, danny downer and his brother dirk.

[ Liam snorting ]

Wyatt: Why dirk?

Bill: Anyway, I didn’t expect katie to move in here and just resume our life right away. But I don’t think that day is too far off.

Carter: Well, first, I wanna tell you that I appreciate you for being open with me about your date with bill.

Katie: Can we please stop calling it a date? It was not a date. And I will never keep secrets from you. Honestly, I’m not surprised that bill wants me back.

Carter: Well, look at you, katie. I’m not surprised either.

Katie: He always wants me when he thinks he can’t have me. He says that he misses me and misses our life together.

Carter: And what about you? Do you feel the same way?

Finn: I know how you feel.

Steffy: But you’re not thrilled that I paid sheila a visit?

Finn: Especially by yourself? I could’ve gone with you, steffy.

Steffy: And make sheila’s dreams come true? Her precious son goes to see his psychopath birth mom. No way, we– we cannot give her that satisfaction. I love you for being concerned, but sheila has no power over us anymore.

Sheila: It means a lot that you came to see me.

Jack: Don’t flatter yourself, sheila. You wanna know why I’m here?

Sheila: Oh, you were intrigued by my suggestive emails?

Jack: No. I need to tell you in person to leave me alone, sheila. I want nothing to do with you. So, stop writing, stop sending me emails. Do you understand me? Do I make myself clear?

These are the people, who help you stay well.

Liam: Well, I gotta say, dad, I’m hearing a lot of confidence.

Wyatt: Yeah, I mean, you do sound pretty convinced that you and katie are gonna get back together.

Bill: Gotta have a little faith in life, wyatt.

Liam: This is true. This is true. They did get to have lunch together, I mean–

Bill: Well, she didn’t actually stay for the meal, but I’m telling you, katie was moved. I could feel it.

Wyatt: Oh, you guys got a nice stroll down memory lane.

Bill: Yeah. Memories that, uh, katie will never forget. I mean, that’s what she said.

Liam: Well, of course, yeah, your relationship had challenges, but look at all the good stuff. You got will out of it, you know.

Bill: A son that will bond us forever.

Wyatt: Exactly.

Liam: What about carter? ‘Cause it kind of seems like those two are serious.

Bill: Katie definitely cares about him, which doesn’t discourage me, but I know that I have a battle on my hands.

Carter: Do you feel the same way as bill?

Katie: Hmm. My feelings for bill aren’t simple. No, they’re complicated. I won’t lie about that. He’s the father of my son. We have a long history. Some of that history is good. Some of that history is not so good. I mean, I’d gotten to the point where I had lost all faith in bill.

Carter: Then he surprises all of us by putting sheila carter in prison.

Katie: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, he– he frustrates me to no end, and then he does something brave and he sacrifices himself, puts himself in danger so that sheila can be locked up for the rest of her life.

Steffy: Then sheila’s exactly where she’s supposed to be.

Finn: Well, finally.

Steffy: I mean, you should have seen her. She looked so small, in every sense of the word, like her smug bravado, gone. She just looked sad and helpless, and she should. She’s gonna die in that place.

Finn: I wonder if reality has sunk in yet.

Steffy: Well, she’s gonna have to find a way to accept her fate because there is nothing and no one that can get sheila out of there.

Sheila: You’re my only hope.

Jack: I’m not anything to you, sheila.

Sheila: That’s not true. I can’t accept that you don’t want to see me anymore. It’s like I said, I see the loneliness in your eyes, jack. It’s okay. I mean, you– you can talk to me. I know things haven’t been easy for you lately.

Jack: [ Chuckles ] That’s an understatement. Li won’t even return my calls since she found out about our affair, that you’re finn’s birth mother. My marriage is basically dead. And my relationship with finn is not the same as it was.

Sheila: I’m sorry.

Jack: You save that. I don’t want to hear that from you. Not with all the unspeakable things that you’ve done. You shot our son, you shot finn.

Sheila: That was an accident. You’ve got to believe that, because I love finn more than my own life. He is a remarkable, amazing man and he’s the best thing that you and I have ever done. Our son, jack. Our son. (Music throughout)

Liam: You know, I– I’ve gotten to know carter pretty well over the years. So has wyatt.

Wyatt: Yeah, I mean, he’s a pretty good guy.

Bill: I don’t disagree. I have no personal beef with carter.

Liam: Except that you’re both into the same woman.

Bill: Uh-huh. Now, for all the criticism I get, carter’s not perfect either.

Liam: I’m not saying– that’s not what I– did I say that? I’m not– no, nobody’s– nobody’s flawless. I’m just– I’m just saying–

Bill: Well, well, listen, kid, she’s pretty damn close. She is a living angel. And right now she has her walls up with me and I– I can’t blame her. I hurt her and I regret that more than I can say, but I will prove to her that she is the only woman for me, and she’ll be my katie again.

Carter: Did he call you his katie?

[ Katie laughs ]

Katie: Oh, he said a lot of things. And I’m– I’m gonna be totally honest with you. He tried to kiss me. I wouldn’t let him because I didn’t want to, because of you. Because of us.

Carter: Us. I love that word.

Katie: Me too. We actually talked about you quite a bit.

Carter: I’m sure he was really excited about that.

Katie: He loved– he loved it. Yeah, I told him that you were um, you were kind and you were caring and funny and– and best of all– best of all, you’ve never fallen for my sister.

Carter: That is true. That’s a– a score one for me.

Katie: Yeah, that’s a gold star. I wanted him to know how important you are to me and how good you make me feel. I want you to know how much you mean to me.

Carter: I have a pretty good idea.

Katie: Good guy.

Steffy: How was your visit with your mom?

Finn: It was good to touch base with her.

Steffy: You tell her where I went?

Finn: I did, and to say that she was shocked, would be an understatement.

Steffy: Maybe li and i should pay sheila a visit. Could you imagine sheila having to face that? She’d probably go crying back to her cell.

Finn: My mom’s another one of sheila’s victims.

Steffy: Finn, your mom could have died.

Finn: What now? No, it’s– it’s more than that. I mean, what sheila and my dad did before I was born. Like that affair and that– that secret finally coming out. My mom is a strong woman, but I know how much that shattered her faith in my father.

Sheila: Jack, you’re alone, a broken man. Your son doesn’t respect you. Li has shut you out. You have nothing.

Jack: Why would i listen to you?

Sheila: Because I understand. You know, the next time you are feeling down and alone, I just want you to think back to that night where finn was conceived and how much we loved one another and the life that we could have had. We… we still can.

Jack: This is it, sheila. This is your life. You confessed to murder. They’re never gonna let you out of here.

Sheila: I just want you to remember. Just remember us and how good we were together. And it wasn’t just about passion and sex, a filthy fling. No, it was a lot more than that. You know it was. You said so. You told me you loved me and I loved you too. I’m barbara and I’m fromst. Joseph, michigan.

Finn: I worry about my mom.

Steffy: Why?

Finn: She’s just– she’s still so angry at my dad. I– she hasn’t been able to find any forgiveness at all and not– not for his sake, but just, you know, for herself so she could move forward.

Steffy: Yeah, but what about you? How do you feel? I mean, you don’t really talk about jack that much.

Finn: Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about him. There’s a lot of confusing emotions. I mean, on one hand, I mean, I’m– I’m hurt that he would keep such a huge secret from me and my mom all these years. He owed it to us to tell the truth.

Steffy: Yeah, you’re right. He did.

Finn: But then, on the other hand, my dad was an incredible father. You know, I was always loved and appreciated and supported in every single way. It’s just my parents and I, we were so close, and when I think about my mom learning that my dad cheated on her. And the child that they adopted, me, was his son from an affair and it’s something that he knew about all these years and kept secret. I mean, what kind of man does that? I mean, it’s no surprise my mom is so upset and hurt. It makes us both question everything, you know? And it makes me wonder how close were sheila and my dad all those years ago.

Steffy: But finn, if that affair hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have you. And I wouldn’t have hayes. I’m sorry about what you’re going through but just know, I am with you every step of the way.

Sheila: What we shared was more than just one night. We loved one another. You were hungry for me. You couldn’t get enough of me. But you were married and we had to hide our affair while I carried your child inside of me. Our child. Do you remember the very first time you came to see me after I had finn? How much I wanted you? I wanted you to be my husband. I wanted you to marry me. I was so excited about what could be. The joy and it where– where things could go, but you didn’t want to leave your wife. You didn’t want to hurt her. So I– I gave you our son. You and li adopted our son. And now all these years later, your marriage to li is over and your relationship with finn is irrevocably damaged.

Jack: That’s true. But look at you, sheila. Look around, look where you are.

Sheila: Yeah, you’re right. I want you to take a look around, locked up in this filthy place. You know life has turned into a very lonely, shallow existence for both of us. And yet here we– we are yet again, face to face. We can make something good out of this and we had that magic before, jack. We can do it again.

Jack: Not on your life. Don’t email me, don’t try to contact me. I’ll never see you again, sheila. Hear me? Never. Guard, let me out.

Guard: I’ll be back for you.

Sheila: Yeah, I’ve been emailing you, writing letters, and no response. I… I almost thought that maybe I should give up. But look, it worked. You came. Thank you. It really means a lot to me that you’re here.

Eric: This is really good, carter. I like how you resolved all these issues. You did a great job. Although I shouldn’t be surprised, you do a great job for this company. That’s why you’re so important to us, all of us, and to the family, too.

Carter: I’m honored you feel that way. And speaking of family, you must be excited to have your grandson back in town.

Eric: Oh, yeah, yeah, I’m more than happy, I’m– I’m thrilled.

Carter: Yeah, it’s good to see R.J. And ridge can’t stop talking about how happy he is to have his son back.

Eric: That kid’s really going places, you know. He makes all these videos. They’re– they’re all over the internet. It’s great.

Carter: Yeah, I follow him.

Eric: Yeah, me, too. Carter? What’s going on? You okay?

Carter: Yeah.

Eric: It just seems like you’re a little off balance.

Carter: I think my mind might be over at the spencer estate, if I’m being honest. Katie went to see bill. She’s with him as we speak.

Eric: Yeah.

Bill: Feels good hearing you appreciate me.

Katie: Well, what you did was very brave. Going up against sheila carter like that, it was risky. It could’ve turned out a lot differently for you. And I’m glad that it didn’t, especially for will’s sake.

Bill: And for yours, too? Maybe a little? I’m glad you agreed to come over, katie. I miss you. The house misses you.

Katie: The house?

Bill: Yeah, the house. I mean, look around. You feel it, too, don’t you? The energy. This is where you belong, katie. This is your home.

Eric: Carter, you shouldn’t let that bother you. Katie at bill’S. I mean, they share a son. They’re always gonna have things to talk about from time to time.

Carter: I understand, but there’s more to it. It’s not just two parents getting together to talk about their child. No. No, no, no, bill’s got ideas.

Eric: Ideas? Uh-huh. And these ideas concern you because you have feelings for katie–

Carter: I don’t wanna see katie hurt again.

Bill: I’m not trying to pressure you, katie. I respect that you wanted some time away from me, that you… needed a temporary split.

Katie: Temporary, huh?

Bill: As far as I’m concerned. You’ve got to miss it a little bit? Me, this home, the place where we shared some of the greatest moments of our lives. I remember. And I know that you remember, too.

Sheila: Thank you for– for coming. I– I’m sure it wasn’t an easy decision for you.

Jack: Every instinct tells me I shouldn’t be here. What do you want, sheila?

Sheila: It is so good to see you, jack.

[ Chuckles ] (Music throughout)

Carter: Bill’s hurt katie too many times already. He’s hurt her in ways that–

Eric: Katie’s smart, all right? She’s not gonna let bill deceive her again. Especially when there’s a– a better option at hand. You two have not, uh, exactly been able to hide how you feel about each other.

Carter: Yes,

katie, this is real.

We just made love.

That’s so much better.

Katie: You’re right.

It was love.

Carter: It’s true. Katie’s become very special to me. I wanna give her all the good things.

Eric: Good. Yeah, especially in opposition to how things have been with him all these years. Look, I’m with you. I don’t wanna see katie’s fragile heart in– in– in bill spencer’s hands.

Bill: Chef said about 10 more minutes. Can I get you something to drink while we’re waiting?

Katie: Uh, no– no, I’m– I’m good. I actually– I– I– I’m kind of rethinking whether I should stay for a meal.

Bill: Well, it’s kind of an important part of having lunch together, don’t you think?

Katie: Yeah, it’s just that I– I should’ve been clearer about my intentions. I– I wanted to come by to reiterate how grateful I am for what you did with sheila, but anything else…

Bill: Because of carter?

Katie: I told you how much I’m enjoying getting to know him.

Bill: Well, how well do you know him, katie? What exactly is going on between you two?

Katie: I’m sure you don’t want me to get into details.

Bill: What about me? You did kiss me, after all, when you found out the truth of what was really going on with sheila.

Katie: Yes, and as I recall, I slapped you as well. Bill, you and carter are just two very different people.

Bill: Well, I’ll give him credit for one thing. Smart man, falling for you.

Jack: This was a mistake.

Sheila: No, no, come on, please. At least– at least hear me out.

Jack: What can you possibly have to say that I’d want to hear, sheila?

Sheila: Well, I’ve had a lot of time, um… to think here, jack.

Jack: To think about your crimes? Good. Sort of the point.

Sheila: About my past and better days. And I realized that a lot of those were with you. I… those early years with you and I treasure those memories. I treasure those moments and– and none of them more than the night that we conceived finn.

[ Laughs ] He saved my life, you know.

Jack: Yeah, I know.

Sheila: Finn didn’t have to do that. He could have let me die. But he didn’T. I mean, that’s the man that you raised. Our boy, jack. Our boy. Tv: Try tide power pods with 85% more tide in every pod.

Sheila: You know, I– I couldn’t be more proud of our son and the man that he turned out to be. And I owe you thanks for that, jack, the way you raised him.

Jack: What are you trying to do here, sheila?

Sheila: Maybe… we can help one another?

Jack: If you think you could drag me into your madness or that I would ever help you in any way… you’re even crazier than I thought.

Carter: Look, eric, you and I can understand that bill’s no good for katie, but our opinion doesn’t exactly count. She has to know it, too.

Eric: I’m pretty sure she does.

Carter: Intellectually, yes. But emotionally, when you throw that in the mix, there’s a history there, eric. A marriage full of memories. A child they both adore.

Eric: And you’re scared that he’s gonna remind her of that? That he’s gonna convince her that, uh, he deserves another chance?

Carter: He’s already proven that he’s the hero, right? He took down sheila carter.

Eric: That was a team effort.

Carter: Okay, but it all hinged on bill, his performance, and there’s no denying that it’s changed the way everyone looks at him, including katie.

Eric: Look, carter, two opposing things can be true at the same time. On the one hand, you know, bill’s a big hero. He saved his whole family from a psychotic killer. On the other hand, he’s the worst possible partner that katie could have in this world. So, I’m not gonna worry about it. Look, it doesn’t matter how much he rattles on about having a third and fourth, and fifth chance. You have to have faith that katie’s not gonna fall for it.

Carter: I hope not. I mean, how could she ever believe bill’s feelings for her? Knowing deep down, they’ll never compare to what he feels for her sister.

Katie: You say carter is a smart man. Well, I agree. He’s very smart, he’s very accomplished.

Bill: Odd. Where’s the part where we’re supposedly very different?

Katie: Well, he’s never fallen for my sister, so that’s a huge plus.

Bill: Can we leave brooke out of it?

Katie: I wish– I wish we could. I wish you would have. Things would have been really different. I suppose you’ve heard about the pact that brooke and taylor have made. They’re gonna put their friendship first and they’re swearing off ridge.

Bill: Yeah, that pact will never last.

Katie: Well, I think it will. I can’t speak for taylor, but brooke, she’s pretty committed to staying true to it. So, she’s available.

Bill: And I’m sure the right guy is out there for her. But if you’re suggesting that’s me, katie–

Katie: You want her. You know you do. So, now’s your chance. You– she’s all alone. She’s all alone in that big house, so you should make your move. You know you want to. Go to her.

Bill: There was a time when I would have raced right over. I will admit that she had a hold on me. But it had an expiration date and that time has passed. You are the only woman I want, katie. You are the only woman I need. I used to pre-rinse dishes cause my old detergent

Eric: Carter, bill’s feelings for brooke will always be in the back of katie’s mind. You have to– you have to feel confident that– that alone is gonna keep her away from him.

Carter: I hear you and I definitely wanna believe that. Katie deserves better than what bill has to offer.

Eric: No, there’s no question about that. She deserves the kind of life that you will give her.

Carter: I’d like the chance. And the way I feel for katie, the happiness I want to give her, the joy, the–

Eric: Yeah, yeah.

Carter: The laughter.

Eric: Yeah, yeah.

Carter: Just put me in coach, I’m ready.

Eric: Oh, you’re in the game, you’re in the game. I mean, I’ve seen the way she looks at you. I’m on your side.

Carter: Thank you, eric.

Eric: Yeah.

Carter: Belated

merry christmas, katie.

Katie: Beautiful.

Katie: I should go. This was– this isn’t productive.

Bill: Okay, okay, okay. Just humor me first.

Katie: I’m kind of all out of jokes.

Bill: Yeah. Humor me by sitting here with me on this couch for a couple of minutes, in this room where we spent so many evenings together, unwinding. You with a– with a book in your hand, me with a whiskey. We would talk about our day and sometimes we would just sit together enjoying the mutual silence. And I would watch you, admiring my beautiful katie. Will you please do that with me? Just– just sit here. Just for a couple of minutes. I want to remember what that felt like. And I want to remind you that the majority of time that we spent together, was really great. So many incredible memories, katie, beautiful moments, positive, happy times.

I said something

when I proposed

and I’m going to say it again,

in front of all these people.

I want you, katie.

I want our family.

I want our life together.

Nothing means more to me.

Katie: You’re not wrong. We– we shared a lot of beautiful moments.

Bill: And we will again. I mean it, katie. I swear I mean it. You are the only woman for me. I want our life back. I want the future that we should have been sharing together.

Sheila: You know, there’s really no reason to be cruel. I just thought that you loved our son as much as I did.

Jack: I do.

Sheila: I gave him to you. I gave you the most important gift that you will ever receive.

Jack: I’m supposed to give you something in return? Is that what you’re thinking, sheila?

Sheila: You’re a criminal defense attorney, jack, one of the finest in all of los angeles. I just– I just have a few questions. I mean, what– what went down to put me here? Why am I locked up?

Jack: Because you killed people, sheila. Because you are…

[ Sighs ] I’m not doing this.

Sheila: Oh, come on.

Jack: I’m not answering your questions–

Sheila: And yet you’re here. And you came of your own free will, your choice. Why? I think we both know.

Jack: Why are you looking at me like that, sheila?

Sheila: Because I recognize it.

Jack: Recognize what?

Sheila: Don’t you remember how drawn we were to one another? And yes, the years have gone by, but that connection between us, it– it hasn’t changed. Yes, we have led very different lives. But I see us as our younger selves and I know so many things really have remained the same.

Jack: What are you trying to get at?

Sheila: You were lonely. Lee was devoted to her career. She didn’t pay attention to your needs and your wants. And I was lonely, too. I mean, that’s what sparked everything between us. What led to finn. And I– I look at you now and I see that hollow look in your eyes and that sadness in your face, as it was before. You’re lonely again. Just like me.

[ Relaxing music ]

Katie: This is why I left you, bill. But it’s also why I love you.

[ Bill sighing ]

Carter: You’re thinking about it too, huh?

Katie: You mean what happened earlier at your place?

Carter: Big step.

Katie: It’s a major step. And both of us kind of said “it,” without saying it, you know? We don’t need those three little words, even though that’s what we were feeling.

Carter: Are feeling.

Katie: Yeah. Mm-hmm. I know that neither one of us really wanted to rush things. Wanted to take our time getting to know each other.

Carter: Mm-hmm.

Katie: And I’m glad we did.

Carter: Me too. In fact, you know, you can stay here and we can keep getting to know each other.

Katie: Oh? Really?

Carter: You don’t need to go see bill, do you?

Sheila: You know– what– what is this room? I’ve never been in here before.

Guard: Your visitor, it’s another inmate.

Sheila: Another inmate.

Mike: Hey, doll face.

Carter: Bill’s made it more than clear that he wants you back.

Katie: Well, contrary to what bill spencer might think, he doesn’t always get what he wants.

Brooke: Oh! Oh, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to interrupt.

Katie: Uh, that’s okay. I was just leaving. I have a date with bill.

Brooke: Oh!

Katie: I’ll see you later.

Carter: Have fun.

Katie: Bye.

Sheila: I can’t believe it.

Mike: Yeah.

Sheila: Oh, it’s really you.

Mike: Your old pal, mike guthrie, in the flesh. Surprise, surprise.

Sheila: It certainly is.

Mike: Believe it or not. I’m still in this place. We’re staying in the same five star high class joint. But I wanted to check on you and make sure you were okay myself. I heard about the heart episode. I was worried about you. How’s the ticker?

Sheila: Still ticking.

Mike: But you’re doing better now, right? I mean, look at you. You look like a mill.

Sheila: Oh, I guess it’s the, uh, the five star cuisine that they’ve been feeding me.

Mike: Glad to see you haven’t lost your sense of humor. Kind of hard not to. This place.

Sheila: Yeah. You know, I– I never thought… that I’d be locked up again.

Mike: Oh, yeah. Didn’t expect your savior, bill spencer, to double cross you either. But holy moly, babe, did he ever.

Katie: Don’t tell me you picked those yourself?

Bill: What if I said I did?

Katie: I would ask you what you’ve done with the real bill spencer.

Bill: So, I thought we would, uh, eat by the pool. The chef is setting it up now.

Katie: That sounds nice.

Bill: You know, since you wouldn’t have dinner with me the other night.

Katie: It’s not that I wouldn’t have dinner with you. I just had other plans.

Bill: Other plans. Hm. Like a yoga class.

Katie: Sort of.

Bill: Well. Since the other night didn’t pan out, I’m glad today did. I am seeing you here. In this house. The house where we raised our son. It just feels right, katie. Like you’re finally home. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Mike: Must be rough, being back in the slammer again.

Sheila: I– I hate this. Being locked up like a caged animal, just wondering if this is the way that– that I’m gonna be spending the rest of my life.

Mike: Don’t go there. One day at a time.

Sheila: Yeah, well, that might work for you, but not me. I spend every waking moment trying to figure a way out of this place.

Mike: Well, I hate to break it to you, but I don’t think that’s gonna happen.

Sheila: Whose side are you on?

Mike: Yours. Always. I pulled a lot of strings to come over here, to visit you. I thought a friendly face might help. Look. You know how I feel about you. On the outside, I can’t compete with the forresters, those handsome chiselled jaws. But in here? Yours truly, not so bad. I mean, look around. Suddenly, mike guthrie’s a real catch. There. There’s that smile.

Sheila: I appreciate it. I really appreciate you, mike.

Mike: I bet I know what else is bothering you. I know how much you love your son. I bet you’re missing finn something fierce.

Sheila: You have no idea. But not to worry. I have a plan to see my son again very soon.

Carter: So basically, bill wants another shot to convince katie to take him back. You know, bill being himself, the man never gives up.

Brooke: Even though he probably should.

Carter: If that’s your way of asking me if I think if katie is totally over him.

Brooke: Well, I see the way katie looks at you, and it’s obvious your relationship is… progressing. I mean, bill must see that too.

Carter: Of course he does. That’s why he invited her over to the house. That’s why she’s there now. This is how it’s gonna go. Bill’s gonna remind her of their relationship, all the good things. You know, their marriage. And then he’s gonna go into the family they created with will, and then, he is going to apologize. He is gonna say sorry for hurting her over and over again. And then, he’ll promise never to do it again. And don’t get me started on all the jewelry.

Brooke: The jewelry.

Carter: I’m sorry, I’m saying more than I should.

Brooke: No, you don’t have to apologize to me. I know you care about katie.

[ Brooke giggling ]

Carter: Confession?

Brooke: [ Whispering ] Yes!

Carter: Earlier today, katie and I basically said “I love you” to each other.

[ Brooke gasping ]

Brooke: What? Really?

Carter: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Oh, my god, I’m so happy for you two. I’m so happy.

Carter: Thank you. Thank you. And that’s why I think I’m so worked up. I’m just– I’m not crazy about her being with bill right now. I don’t trust him.

Brooke: Yeah.

Carter: Especially when it comes to your sister.

Bill: I still don’t know how he pulled it off. What was he, like five or six? And he– and he tapes $5 bills all over the wall spelling out “happy birthday daddy?” Right– right there. Right on that wall. So, I would come down the stairs and see them first thing in the morning. You remember that?

Katie: I– of course I remember it. I was the one who gave him the money.

Bill: Of course you were.

Katie: But the idea was all his.

Bill: Well, he always knew how to get on his old man’s good side, didn’t he?

Katie: He always worshipped the ground you walked on. He still does.

Bill: You miss him as much as I do?

Katie: Every moment of every day.

Bill: I miss his mom, too.

Katie: Bill, I know what you’re doing and… I haven’t forgotten our family and the wonderful moments that we’ve shared.

Bill: I’m glad to hear that. And there are more good times to be had, and there are more memories to make. As a family. As a couple.

Katie: Bill, I can’T.

Bill: Because of carter? People call it the biggest smalltown festival in minnesota.

Carter: Katie’s her own woman. She’ll make the right decision for her life. For herself.

Brooke: Carter, you don’t have to like that bill’s trying to win katie back.

Carter: Let’s face it, brooke. We all know bill loves you.

Brooke: Bill is a part of my past. A past that I don’t plan on revisiting.

Carter: I get that. And I understand, but still, katie doesn’t deserve to be anyone’s second choice. She’s too special for that.

Bill: You and carter, it’s that serious?

Katie: We never expected it to go anywhere. You know, we’ve been colleagues for a long time. We just started spending time together and we realized that… we like spending time together. I admire him and I respect him.

Bill: Okay. I understand that he comes with a lot of baggage of his own.

Katie: If you’re talking about–

Bill: I’m talking about, well, to put it mildly, that whole mess with quinn. A lot of people got hurt, katie.

Katie: Yeah. And nobody knows that more than carter, and he regrets that it went as far as it did.

Bill: Well, I have plenty of regrets of my own. Most importantly, not cherishing what you and I had when we had it. Losing your faith and your trust. Now, if carter can learn from his mistakes, can’t I do the same? Can you give me that much?

Katie: Of course. Yes, of course. I– I’m not angry. I– I’m not resentful. I am not trying to hold you to a higher standard. I care about you, bill. I always will.

Bill: But you care about carter more? All right. Look, um, I’m gonna ask you a question. I want you to be straight with me. What exactly is going on between you and carter?

[ Katie scoffing ]

Mike: Why would you expect finn, the son you shot–

Sheila: Accidentally.

Mike: Why would you expect him to come and see you?

Sheila: Okay. Well, you already know about my heart attack.

Mike: Yeah. So?

Sheila: Well, I put in a request to be seen by my attending physician.

Mike: Your son.

Sheila: Precisely. Mike, look, finn could have let me die, but he didn’T. I think that speaks volumes, don’t you?

Mike: Well, obviously you’re hoping it does.

Sheila: I’m still his birth mother. I’m the one that gave him life. And somewhere, deep down, I just, I– I know he still loves me. He’s gonna forgive me. He’s gonna accept me and I can’t just sit back waiting for that to happen. I’ve got to make that happen.

Mike: Never ceases to amaze me. Your willingness to keep fighting. But come on, sheila. You gotta be realistic. The fbi nailed you. You confessed to murder one. Those are some big obstacles.

Sheila: Yeah. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. And make no mistake, mike, I have the will. No two bodies are the same.

Sheila: Mike. I don’t intend on spending the rest of my life in this hellhole.

Mike: Like I haven’t heard that before.

Sheila: You’re doubting me.

Mike: Oh, no. No. I learned a long time ago not to do that. But I’ll say it again. The situation is different. You confessed to killing two people.

Sheila: No. No, not two. Just one, okay? The other one was an accident. Besides, I won’t be doing this on my own. I’m gonna have help from the outside.

Mike: Who? Sheila, I don’t mean any offense, but you’re poison. Nobody’s gonna touch you. Look, it’s time to face facts. Sheila, you’re gonna be in this place a long, long time.

Guard: You got a visitor.

Sheila: I do?

Guard: You emailed him.

Mike: Seriously, sheila?

Sheila: He got my email. He’s coming. Okay.

Mike: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing? Who are you seeing? Damn it, sheila. Answer me!

Sheila: I’m ready.

Mike: Ready for what? Sheila, come on, talk to me. Sheila, wait. Sheila! I love you!

Katie: I don’t wanna talk about carter and me. I– I wanna talk about you and me.

Bill: Well, I always like the sound of that.

Katie: I appreciate you too, bill. I do. And not just because you’re will’s father, but because of everything we’ve shared and everything that we’ve meant to each other. I can see that you are the man that I always knew you were, that you’re at your best. You’re the man who put sheila carter away for good.

Sheila: What room is this?

Guard: All right. Here you go.

Sheila: Oh, god, that feels good.

Guard: Make yourself comfortable.

Sheila: Thanks. Thank you for coming. You won’t be disappointed, I promise you.

Steffy: Amelia has the kids. Oh, we could go back to bed. Pick up where we left off.

Finn: Mm… I would love that more than you know. But my mom’s coming over.

Steffy: Yeah. Unless I call and reschedule.

Steffy: It is tempting.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: But I have plans, too. I have some unfinished business with someone.

[ Alarm buzzing ]

Sheila: [ Sighs ] You’ve got to find a way out of here.

Bill: So, let me get this straight. The two of you, on your own, without consulting me, acquired a streaming channel that no one is watching.

Wyatt: Well, I mean, I wouldn’t say no one’s watch– that’s why we got it so cheap. Do you see? Liam?

Liam: Uh, right. Yeah. So– so we just figured instead of, you know, building a new one from the ground up, we would acquire and– and rebrand an existing channel devoted to all things fashion.

Wyatt: Yeah, I mean, just change direction. Update it a little bit. You know, movies, new and old. Documentaries that feature some of the famous designers and– and models throughout the years.

Liam: Uh, and, you know, interviews with up-and-coming influencers. Live coverage of– of shows.

Wyatt: All the award shows. It’S…

Liam: You hate it.

Liam and wyatt: He hates it.

Liam: That’s it.

Wyatt: Yeah, we gotta go back.

Bill: No. I love it.

Wyatt: What?

Bill: And besides, you guys deserve a new toy. You held down the fort at spencer publications while I appeared to be awol with sheila.

Wyatt: [Laughs] Yeah.

Bill: I’m proud of you guys.

Liam: Thanks, dad.

Wyatt: Aw, look at this guy. We’re glad to have you back.

Liam: Personally and professionally.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Bill: Well, no one’s happier than I am. I lost precious time, those… disgusting months with sheila. And I want to get it back. Starting with the time I lost with my katie.

[ Katie moans sleepily ]

Carter: Morning, sunshine.

Katie: Morning. Are you watching me sleep?

Carter: Mm. What can I say? I love looking at you.

Katie: I like looking at you.

Liam: So, uh, katie, huh?

Wyatt: So, she’s back on your agenda?

Bill: Never left it. I just got sidetracked. But I’m back now. What?

Liam: No– nothing. No, it’s just, uh… I don’t think– we don’t want to be negative.

Wyatt: No. Never.

Liam: But–

Wyatt: No. Yeah, just, you– you have a history with, um–

Liam: With katie. And– and with brooke. And…

Wyatt: Yeah. You– you really– you really believe you have another shot with katie?

Bill: Absolutely.

Carter: [ Chuckles] Ah, waking up, you… sleeping beside me…

[ Katie chuckles ] I done something right.

Katie: Mm.

Carter: Starting my day gazing at such beauty.

Katie: [ Giggles ] Well, you make me feel beautiful. That’s not all you make me feel.

Finn: You’re going to see sheila?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Why?

Steffy: I have a few things I need to say to that murdering psycho. I just want to see her. I wanna see her behind bars. Finally caged like the animal she is.

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, O.C. Keller. Any chance that I can get back on the, uh– the prison computer system? You know, I sent an email earlier. I want to see if I got a response.

Guard: Can’T. Visitor scheduled.

Sheila: Who?

Guard: You just gotta wait and see. Still living with odors?

Finn: Look, I just– I don’t like the idea of you being alone in a room with sheila.

Steffy: It’s prison. There’ll be guards. You have nothing to worry about. Though I love that you do.

Finn: Just what– why don’t you let me come with you?

Steffy: I want you to have a nice time with your mom. I’ll be fine.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: ‘Kay. I love you. I’ll be fine.

Finn: I love you. All right.

Katie: [ Moans ] Why can’t we just stay like this? Just stay in bed all day long?

Carter: That would be awesome.

Kate: Mm.

Carter: But duty calls for me, and you have a date with bill. [ Chuckles ]

Katie: Oh, my god, it’s not a date. He just– he just wants to talk.

Carter: Yeah. Keep telling yourself that.

Katie: Maybe we’ll just talk about will.

Carter: Mm. You know that’s not true.

Katie: I’m sorry if it bothers you.

Carter: It doesn’T. I just don’t trust bill.

Katie: Well, I have a question.

Carter: Shoot.

Katie: Why are we talking about bill?

Carter: Bill who?

Katie: Hmm.

[ Giggles ]

Bill: You guys want a water?

Liam: Ah, no, we’re good.

Wyatt: Thank you. You– you and katie ha– have been through a lot together and– and not all good. Well, that could be said of any couple, wyatt.

Wyatt: True.

Liam: Uh, well, you know, I– I’m not sure just any husband falls for the wife’S… sister.

Wyatt: Yeah, dad. I mean, katie hasn’t been the same ever since you were with brooke.

Bill: Yeah, I know. I know, wyatt. I broke katie’s trust. But I can win it back.

Liam: Oh, he sounds really sure about it.

Bill: All I need is time and access.

Wyatt: And I take it that katie hasn’t been giving you either?

Bill: Not yet. But that’ll change. Not overnight. But I will get another chance with katie, and I won’t blow it next time.

Liam: And what about carter?

Bill: He’ll move on.

Wyatt: Well–

Liam: Okay.

Wyatt: I– it’s hard to argue with you when you’re this determined. You know, I mean, you have been known to pull off the impossible–

Liam: Technically, he just did.

Wyatt: Mm.

Liam: Right? With, you know, securing a confession from sheila, sending her back to prison for life.

Guard: Prison secure.

[ Door buzzing ]

Man on radio: Jail 5 and 7,


[ Door buzzing ]

Steffy: Had to see you in your natural habitat. I gotta say.. suits you. (Music throughout)

Bill: First thing I’m gonna do when katie comes back to me is whisk her off to the stella maris. A month, maybe two. However long it takes for us to really rediscover each other.

Liam: Yeah, cool. That’s– yeah. That’s– yeah. I– I mean, uh, I don’t know. Katie might have some trouble getting away. It just depends on the timing, ’cause, like, as if– if, say, it conflicted with the hope for the future launch–

[Cross chatter]

Bill: All right, all right. Can you just slow your practicality roll and allow me to do my visualization.

Wyatt: You got a vision board for that?

[ Liam snorts with laughter ] Put it up in the–

Bill: Keep it up, clown.

Wyatt: ‘Kay.

Bill: Keep it up. But watch, the two of us on the stella maris, and either before or after, we’re gonna do some house hunting.

Wyatt: Wow. You– you are really planning ahead here.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. Maybe too far, too fast.

Bill: Oh, here it comes.

Liam: I don’t know. Listen–

Bill: Here it comes.

Liam: I’m just– you– I love you. I’m just saying– I’m just saying it’s possible that you’re underestimating katie’s connection with carter.

[ Katie sighs ]

Katie: Wow.

Carter: Mm-hmm. You can say that again.

Katie: Ha. Okay. Wow. Mm, I think I have it solved.

Carter: What solved?

Katie: The problem with world peace.

Carter: [ Laughs ] Okay.

Katie. No, no. No more war. No more traffic-induced road rage. Even congress might get along. All they have to do is wake up with carter.

Carter: Mm.

Sheila: Problem solved.

Carter: I aim to please.

Katie: Seriously, no one could be in a bad mood after what we just did now.

Carter: Mm. You have a point.

[ Both moaning ] What’s that look?

Katie: I’m gonna ask a, um, slightly inappropriate question.

> Carter: Mm.

Katie: It’s just that I’m curious. What was it like with quinn?

[ Katie laughs ]

Li: So good to see you.

Finn: [ Chuckles] It’s only been, what, two days?

Li: Too long.

Finn: Hmm.

Li: Is this a rare day off for you?

Finn: Uh, I pulled a late night shift.

Li: Oh. So, you and steffy will pass each other at the door.

Finn: Hmm. Well, if we’re lucky.

Li: I know it’s challenging. You have the kids, two demanding careers. I assume that’s where steffy is right now, at forrester?

Finn: Actually, she’s at the prison. To see sheila.

Li: What? Why on the earth–

Finn: She wants to tell sheila how we really feel about her and the hell that she put us through. And not just steffy and me, mom. You, too.

Steffy: Surprised?

Sheila: So, why– why are you here, steffy? Are you here to berate me, humiliate me? Kick me while I’m down?

Steffy: Do I really have to choose?

Sheila: You could show just a little human compassion. You know, put yourself in my position, being set up by bill spencer. What if you found out finn never really loved you, that your whole life was just a scam?

Steffy: First of all, that would never happen. There’s no reason to scam me because I’m not a sociopathic killer. And second, hell will freeze over before I ever feel an ounce of sympathy for you. You’re getting everything you deserve. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.

Liam: Listen, regardless of how it turns out with katie, it’s really nice to have dad back.

Wyatt: Yeah. Vision boards and all.

[ Liam laughs ]

Bill: Thank you, guys. And– and look, I– I have nothing against carter. He’s fine. He’s a good guy. He’s not good enough for katie, and I told them both, I will fight for the woman I love. For my family. And I will win. Katie will come back to me.

Carter: No. No. No, thank you. No. Pillow talk with you about quinn is a lose-lose situation. I’m gonna pass on that question.

Katie: Oh, come on. Come on.

Carter: No.

Katie: I’m a modern woman. I can talk to you about anything. And I’m just– I’m curious. It just– it was so out of character for you. So, I’m asking because I really want to know the answer. I mean, what was it with quinn? Was it just sex?

[ Carter grumbles ]

Carter: Looking back, it was a bad time for the both of us. Quinn and eric, they were having issues, and my love life kept blowing up in my face. And… we felt very unseen. Except when we were together. Just ignited. And it was the guiltiest I’ve ever felt in my life. But to answer your question, there was a powerful attraction and it made for incredible sex. But in the end, that’s all it was, because she left. This. This, katie. This is real. We just made love. That’s so much better. In fact, it’s the best thing ever.

Katie: You’re right. It was love. And it is the best.

Finn: Sheila has messed with your life a lot longer than you and I even knew. And I know how we don’t talk about it anymore, but I imagine it’s still painful. Knowing that dad had an affair with her. That sheila gave birth to me.

Li: Honestly… I wish I never found out. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

Finn: Yeah, this whole sheila thing really tore our whole family apart.

Li: You’re right. My marriage didn’t survive sheila. But you did. Steffy did. I did. I won’t let my mind dwell on the past. The only thing that matters now is that you, steffy, and my precious grandchildren are finally safe from sheila carter.

Sheila: How can you be so cold? Heartless? You know, your husband, son, and I, we all share the same blood. Instead of you respecting that and encouraging a relationship between finn and his mother, hayes and his grandmother, no, you shut me out at every turn.

Steffy: And I always will. Count on that. Oh, sheila, sheila, sheila. You have no one to blame but yourself. Your crimes finally caught up with you and landed you in prison. And now you’ll stay here for the rest of your miserable life. And as far as my family is concerned… you don’t exist. Hayes will never know you.

Sheila: No, that’s not true, because… I’m his grandmother. Finn isn’t gonna let you.

Steffy: If you actually think that, you’re delusional.

Sheila: He’s my son. Finn may be mad, but deep down, he loves me. He could’ve let me die when I had the heart attack. But he didn’t, he saved my life. What more proof do you need?

Steffy: Fins saved you because that’s what he does. He’s a kind, loving man who tries to see the best in people. Even worthless people like you. But I’ll remind him of what a monster you are. And then I’m gonna wipe you from his mind. We will never think about you or talk about you again. My children, they are not gonna know your name. You will be completely erased. Guard?

Sheila: I am going to be back. I am not going to be locked up in this place forever.

Steffy: Guard?

Sheila: You haven’t seen the last of me, steffy.
