[crickets chirping]

Steffy: I said goodbye to Douglas, Paris, and Thomas. Looks like maybe you have, too.

Hope: Thomas was here earlier. And I gave him my blessing.

Finn: Mom. Hey.

Li: Oh.

Finn: Are you just gonna walk by and not say hi?

Li: I guess I just didn’t realize which floor I was on.

Finn: Are you okay?

Jack: Finn. You got a sec to talk?

[Li scoffs] Li.

Li: Not again. I swear, Jack, I’m beginning to think you’re stalking me.

Bill: I can’t tell you how much you have both changed the energy around here. I’ve been alone in this big, empty house for a very long time. And now there is laughter again. And I have a reason to come home. And that’s thanks to you two Nozawa women. Well, Nozawa-slash-Spencer. I wanna make that happen, Luna. I wanna give you my name.

Hollis: This is crazy.

Deacon: Hollis! Dude, where are you?

Jack: I’m here for our son, Li. I stop by every now and then whenever I get the chance. You may have cut off all ties with me. Thankfully, Finn has not.

Li: You’re here for Finn? Or are you actually here scouring the halls looking for pretty nurses?

Finn: Okay, can we keep this cordial, please?

Li: Yes, yes. Not a problem. I was just reminiscing.

Finn: And what’s this about? “Not again.” Have you two been seeing each other?

Li: Absolutely not. We ran into each other at Il Giardino the other day. I was just picking up take-out, that’s all.

Jack: And I was having a drink with the bartender Hollis. I was planning on staying for the live music, but the guy was terrible.

Li: You know what happened after you left, don’t you?

Jack: Songs got worse?

Li: He died.

Finn: Wait, you were at Il Giardino the night Tom died? You both were?

Poppy: Blows my mind that you wanna do this and give Luna your name.

Bill: Well, yeah. We gotta get a few years in as a– as a Spencer before R.J. asks her to become a Forrester.

Luna: Okay, slow down there.

Bill: Just saying. Just saying. Look, seriously, it is important to me that you have my name and everything that goes along with it. It’s your birthright, Luna. And I want you to have everything that you’re entitled to.

Deacon: Oh, you’re back.

Hollis: Um, well, yeah, actually, I think I have something very interesting that you want to know.

Deacon: What’s going–Great.

Hollis: Yeah, the last time this happened, the power was out for like six hours.

Deacon: Yeah, I know. Believe me, I’m paying the bills. You know what? Thank God it’s closing time. So, what do you say we, uh– What do you say we just don’t take any more customers? You know, we finish these guys off, you and I grab a beer after?

Hollis: Sounds great.

Deacon: Yeah?

Hollis: Okay. Let’s do it.

Sheila: Poor Tom.

Steffy: You gave Thomas your blessing to marry Paris?

Hope: I did.

Steffy: I’m impressed. I know you were against the idea. You thought Thomas was coming back to be with you.

Hope: Something that I wanted very much. But I have been doing some soul-searching, and I have come to realize that I needed to take a step back and figure out why I want what I want.

Poppy: Well, as much as I enjoy the three of us hanging out like this, there are some errands that I need to run.

Bill: Yeah. Unfortunately, I have to get going as well. I would ask you to come to the office with me, but we’re prepping tonight for tomorrow’s painfully boring tax code meeting, and I don’t wanna scare you away from the company.

Luna: You know, that actually sounds really exciting, but I think I’m good just staying home here. As long as you both swear that we’re gonna have many more days like this ahead.

Bill: Oh, I can easily swear that. Many more days. That’s a promise.

[piano playing soft tune]

Sheila: Hey, Hollis. Is there a problem with the power again?

Hollis: Uh, what?

Sheila: The lights. They were flickering earlier.

Hollis: Oh, right. Yeah. No. Deacon, he’s looking into that.

Sheila: Is something going on with you?

Hollis: I found something out today.

Sheila: Okay.

Hollis: And I don’t know what to think about it, but I think it’s important. And I mean really important.

Sheila: All right, Hollis. So, what do you think you found out?

Hollis: It’s about Tom and how he died.

Finn: Wait. Why am I just now hearing you were there that night?

Li: Didn’t cross my mind to mention it.

Jack: Now I feel badly I called him a terrible singer.

Li: Oh, that you feel bad about? You’ve done far worse.

[phone ringing] Oh, I have to take this. Hi, Peggy. Uh-huh. No, just adjust the meds.

Jack: Hey. Sorry for the pop in. Obviously, I didn’t realize your mom was here. She still wants nothing to do with me.

Finn: Yeah, Dad, just…

Jack: No, no. I get it. I’ll text in the future.

[Finn chuckles] Speaking of texting, before I go, I just wanna say I’m glad you’re communicating with Poppy and Luna. Family is everything. Poppy is wonderful. There’s really nothing I wouldn’t do for her. She’s a gentle soul despite what your mom says. Poppy deserves the very best in life. And I’m glad that she found out that Luna is… Spencer’s daughter.

Steffy: So, there was something driving you to back away from Thomas?

Hope: I guess. Yes. I’ve– I’ve had a lot going on, and I’ve just been doing a lot of thinking.

Steffy: Yeah. Interesting. I mean, that’s why you gave him your blessing. I think it’s good, Hope. I think it’s good for everyone. I am proud of you. I am. And I’m proud of Thomas. You managed to untangle yourselves from a relationship that was never gonna work out.

Hope: Well, I mean, that’s your opinion. And the jury is still out on Thomas and Paris. That is still a very new relationship.

Steffy: It is, but I have a good feeling about it. Yes, they rushed into an engagement, but they’re not gonna rush into a wedding. They’re taking their time solidifying their bond as a family.

Hope: Well, let’s hope so, especially for Douglas’s sake. And I meant it when I wished Thomas my best.

Steffy: So, what triggered this? I mean, something did. Or was it someone?

Li: I don’t want to talk about your father. Have you seen much of Luna lately or your Aunt Penelope?

Finn: In person, no. But I did talk to Luna, and I heard all about Bill Spencer being her father, if that’s what you’re asking. You don’t approve, do you?

Li: You know, I have my issues with my sister. The way she’s lived her life, I– She’s definitely getting what she’s always wanted. She’s incredibly lucky to be embraced by Bill and everything the Spencer name has to offer. Oh, look at the time. I have somewhere to be. Thank you for reminding me what floor I’m on.

Steffy: So, what’s this realization?

Hope: Oh, I–I don’t want to make it something bigger than it is. It’s–It’s fine. It’s just a conversation I had with my mother where she is helping me to see things a little more clearly and make sense of what’s been going on inside of me.

Steffy: Some inner turmoil?

Hope: Sure. You could say that. But I’m– I’m moving past it now, so…

Steffy: Moving past what? What are you talking about?

Hope: It’s really– It’s not important. Don’t give it another thought. It is nothing that concerns you.

Sheila: We’re all really sad about what happened to Tom, but there is nothing to figure out about his death. Hollis, we all know what happened. He fell off the wagon. He overdosed.

Hollis: Yeah. Sure. Okay, maybe. But– But I found something out, all right? And I want to show it to you, okay? So just–

Sheila: Hollis, I don’t have time for this right now.

Hollis: Seriously, just give me one second. I just wanna show you something.

[electricity buzzing]


Sheila: What? What is that?

Hollis: It’s Tom’s backpack.

Sheila: Why on earth would you have Tom’s backpack?

Hollis: I’ve been trying to wrap my head around how and why Tom died. I think I discovered something.

Sheila: What? What are you doing? Are you rifling through his stuff to find his drug stash?

Hollis: No, no, not at all.

Sheila: Because that’s how he died, Hollis. There’s nothing for you to wrap your head around.

Hollis: Yeah, okay, maybe, but look–

Sheila: Stop.

Hollis: I just found–

Sheila: Stop. No. It is wrong to go through his personal belongings. Besides, God, look at it. It’s–It’s filthy. This is a classy place. That is probably a health code violation. So you know what I want you to do with that? You take that dirty thing and you throw it in the dumpster.

Hollis: Throw it in the dumpster?

Sheila: Yes. Take it…

Hollis: Why would I–

Sheila: …and throw it in the trash. Do you hear me? Just do it.

[electricity buzzing]


[electricity buzzing]

Hollis: What are you doing here? Okay, look, I’m glad you’re here, because I really have to talk to someone about this.


Finn: Oh. Hey. Hope. Is Steffy not in yet?

Hope: Hey. Uh–Um, I don’t think so. No.

Finn: Darn. I, um– I was gonna surprise her on my way home. I worked the graveyard shift last night.

Hope: You must be tired.

Finn: Yeah. A, um, power nap is definitely in my future. How are you doing? I heard about Thomas leaving with Douglas and Paris. Hey, I know it’s tough, but it’s for the best. You’ll see. You’ll find the man that you’re meant to be with, Hope.

Steffy: I appreciate you calling me back. And, yes, this is about Sheila. I heard about that singer’s death. Tom Starr. They’re reporting that it’s an overdose, but have you investigated this, Chief Baker? I mean, they’re saying it’s accidental, but I have a very hard time believing that it’s just coincidence that a man dies where Sheila Carter works.

Deacon: All right, the day is off to a good start. Power’s gonna be restored to the restaurant. We can open up on time as scheduled.

Sheila: That’s great.

Deacon: Come here. I didn’t get a chance to do that last night because I was already in bed when you came back. What took you so long to get up here?

Sheila: Yeah, well, I just wanted to make sure everything was stocked, ready to go for this week. You know, it’s therapeutic for me. Checking everything, making sure the numbers are there.

Deacon: Hmm. I like that. What do you say I go downstairs and make a couple of my soon-to-be world-famous espressos, start the day off for you?

Sheila: Why don’t you stay here and let me do that.

Deacon: Okay. Um, everything all right?

Sheila: Yeah. I’m fine. I’m just thinking about how much I love you and our life here together, and… I’m not gonna let anything or anyone take that away from me.

[gasps, screams]

[screaming continues]

Sheila: No!


Deacon: Sheila, what’s going on? Hollis. Sheila, come help me. Call 911. Oh, my God. Come on. No, don’t say it.

Sheila: He’s gone, Deacon. Hollis is dead.

Here’s a look at what’s ahead.

Luna: I know exactly who did it.

Finn: He died of the same drug that killed Tom.

Deacon: I lost my friends. I want answers. I wanna know what the hell happened.

Hope: I find you attractive.

Finn: You can’t talk this way.

Brooke: You were wanting to go back to Thomas to run away from your feelings for Finn. And you’re terrified of becoming just like your mother. You didn’t want to make the same mistakes. Come on, Hope. Tell me that you see that.

Eric: Thomas. Hey.

Thomas: Hey.

Ridge: There you are. I’ve been looking for you.

Eric: What are you doing?

Ridge: I was looking for you.

Eric: I’m here. I live here. Yeah? And how about you? I mean, are you excited? I mean, the big day’ll be here any minute now.

Thomas: Big day? What big day?

Eric: The day you exchange vows with your beautiful fiancée in front of a throng of well-wishers.

Ridge: A what? A throng?

Eric: A throng.

Ridge: How many people in a throng?

Eric: I’m not exactly sure.

Ridge: Okay.

Eric: All right. A small group of friends and well-wishers watching you marry the beautiful Paris Buckingham.

Thomas: Hmm.

Eric: You excited?

Thomas: Don’t I look excited?


Eric: It actually does show. I’ve never seen you happier.

Thomas: Well, that’s thanks to Paris.

Eric: I can’t wait to welcome Paris into this family. I can’t wait.

Ridge: Hear, hear.

Eric: And whatever the two of you decide, whenever you decide to do it, I’m just happy you’re gonna do it here in this room. In this house.

Luna: God, this is so great, hanging like this, my mom and my dad.

Bill: You wouldn’t rather be hanging with R.J.?

Poppy: Well, next time, we can invite him to join us.

Luna: Yes. I’d like that. And R.J. would, too, I’m sure.

Bill: Really? I’m not R.J.’s favorite person.

Luna: No. He knows how much this means to me, finally finding my father after all these years. He’s been totally supportive.

Bill: Good. I’m glad.

Luna: And he loves that I’m happy, and what makes me happy is this. My dad and my mom. My family. Nothing’s ever gonna come between us ever again.

[Bill chuckles]

[electricity buzzing]

[light switch clicking]

Deacon: Hollis, I need another case of cabernet out here, pronto!

Thomas: You know, Paris and I were thinking when we finally do the ceremony, we might wanna do it out by the pool. We could have everybody in their swimwear, including the bride and groom. What do you think?

Eric: I think that’s an interesting idea.

Thomas: Yeah. It’s very interesting. It’s different, and I think that Douglas would really love it.

Eric: You know, I have– I have some shorts I like that I wouldn’t mind wearing. And I even have some little black ones like your father used to wear in the ’80s.

Ridge: Oh.

Eric: And Donna has dozens of suits to pick from. I could probably wear one of hers, though it might pull focus.

Thomas: Granddad, you’re right. That would definitely pull focus. I’m sorry. I don’t know why I tried to put one over on him.

Ridge: You should know by now that he’s always gonna be one step ahead of you.

Thomas: Yeah.

Eric: Whatever the two of you decide and whenever you decide, it’s gonna be a very special day.

Ridge: I agree. It’s gonna be amazing. Everyone’s behind you.

Thomas: Well, everyone except for Hope. She’s still really upset about this whole engagement thing.

Brooke: I know you never wanted to be like me.

Hope: You’re my mother. I look up to you, and I have always admired your strength and your accomplishments. It’s just…

Brooke: It’s just I haven’t been a very good role model in my personal life. And I know that. I do. Especially when I was younger, I was… very selfish. I would do whatever I wanted, and I didn’t care. I hurt a lot of people– my friends, my family, my children. You were right there, honey. You were right there in the middle of it. And I know you experienced a lot of that fallout. And I’m… so, so sorry. I mean, that’s why you’re the person you are today, why you’re so cautious with everything, and… you are, um– you’re careful, you know? You don’t wanna make the same mistakes that I made, and I understand that. But the reason why I’m saying these things is because I need you to see what’s driving your desire to be with Thomas. You need to see that, honey. Just… let him go. Please, just support his engagement to Paris.

Poppy: Okay.

[Luna laughs] Well, this, um– this is definitely a first for me.

Luna:, Oh, come on, Mom, we used to have caviar every single day when I was growing up.

Bill: Yeah, doesn’t everyone?

[Poppy laughs]

Poppy: Okay. You two are making fun of me.

Bill: No, we’re not making fun of you. We’re enjoying watching you experience something new.

Poppy: Mm-hmm.

Luna: And did you know that Italian caviar is considered one of the best, if not the best in the world?

Poppy: Oh, is that so? And, um–And who told you that?

Luna: Dad, of course. He’s been giving me a crash course on the finer things in life.

Bill: Well, what can I say? I wanna expose both of you to everything that the world has to offer.

[Hollis sighs]

Deacon: Hey, what are you doing? You’re crushing the grapes yourself back here? What’s taking so long with the vino?

Hollis: I’m sorry, boss. I’m coming right now.

Deacon: Come on, come on.

Thomas: Yeah, so, my relationship with Paris really threw Hope big time. I mean, when I came back to town, she thought that I was coming to restart our relationship.

Eric: But you had already moved on with Paris, so…

Thomas: Yeah. And I know that that hurt Hope. And I’m sorry it did.

Ridge: I am, too, but you need to find a woman that was devoted to you.

Thomas: I’m glad you understand.

Eric: Hope will, too, I’m sure, one day.

Thomas: Yeah, I just… I hope that my happiness doesn’t come at her expense.

Ridge: You make that sound that this is–it’s your fault. It’s not.

Thomas: I know it’s not my fault. But, look, I’ve moved on with my life. I’ve found happiness, and it seems like Hope is kind of lost, and that makes me sad.

Ridge: She’s a strong woman. She will find her way. She will move forward.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, speaking of moving forward, I hope you understand I’m heading back overseas with Paris and Douglas.

Ridge: No, we understand. We just don’t like it. But you gotta do what’s best for your son and what’s best for you. That’s what I want.

Thomas: Thanks, Dad.

Eric: Me, too. Me, too, Thomas. Good for you.

Hope: What you’re saying makes sense. I can’t believe I didn’t realize it until now.

Brooke: Sweetheart. Don’t beat yourself up. You’re going through a complicated, emotional time, and you need to be patient with yourself.

Hope: I do care about Thomas, though.

Brooke: I know this is hard, sweetheart. But you don’t need a man. And I know that you would like to meet the love of your life.

Hope: Like you and Ridge?

Brooke: Well, like an idealized version of Ridge and me. I mean, we have had our challenges.

Hope: Yeah, still you did always find your way back to each other.

Brooke: Yeah. We realized that we didn’t wanna live without each other. And I don’t see that for you and Thomas. Honey. You are a catch.

[Hope scoffs] You are. And your perfect man is out there somewhere. But it’s not gonna be Finn. It can’t be Finn. For obvious reasons. Hmm. You do know that, don’t you?

Hope: Oh, I would never, Mom. I’m not a homewrecker.

[Brooke sighs]

Brooke: I know that, sweetie.

Poppy: Okay, wait. You actually went with your dad to Spencer Publications the other day?

Luna: Yeah. And it was crazy. I mean, talk about impressive and exciting.

Bill: Yeah, Forrester Creations pales in comparison, doesn’t it?

Poppy: Ooh.

Luna: Well, um, they are very different companies, that’s for sure. And…you know what? All my life I’ve dreamt of being in fashion. But after visiting Spencer, I can see that there are other possibilities.

Bill: Aha. An open mind. I like it. That means I can lure you over to my team, to the good guys. You have Spencer blood, and that means the family business is your birthright now.

Deacon: Oh, you know that table for six tonight? It’s a table for 10 now. Apparently, they got some last-minute out-of-town guests. Mr. Harper himself called, asked if we could accommodate. The guy runs a studio. Are you even listening to me?

Hollis: Huh? Yeah. What?

Deacon: No. Like hell you are. Come on. You’re zoning out here. What’s going on with you?

Hollis: You wanna know the truth?

Deacon: Yeah.

Hollis: Man, I can’t stop wondering why Tom overdosed that night.

Brooke: Mmm. My goodness.

[laughs] You’re in a good mood.

Ridge: Oh, yeah. Just had a great talk with my son.

Brooke: Oh. I had a… good talk with my daughter.

Ridge: You did? You don’t… seem sure.

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Is she on board finally with Thomas and Paris being engaged?

Brooke: Mm, yeah. I think so.

Ridge: Good. That’s what I want. I want everyone to be happy.

Brooke: I want that, too.


Thomas: Sorry to interrupt.

Hope: Thomas, hi.

Thomas: You look busy. I won’t take too long.

Hope: Uh, no, it’s– it’s fine. What’s–What’s up?

Thomas: I wanted to let you know my plans.

Hope: Actually–Okay, uh, before you do that, I– I believe I owe you an apology.

Thomas: An apology for what?

Hope: Well, you came back here to Los Angeles, excited to start this next chapter of your life with your engagement to Paris, and I, uh, didn’t exactly handle it well. And for that, I am truly sorry, Thomas. You deserve better from me.

Bill: I mean it. You’re a Spencer, the daughter I never knew I had. But now that I do, I want you to have everything that comes with being a Spencer.

Luna: Thank you.

Bill: No. Thank you. Thank you for coming into my life, for being the amazing young woman that you are. I know I’ve said it before, but I could not be prouder as a father to call you my daughter.

Luna: I feel the same way. I am so proud and thrilled to be your daughter.

Bill: Does that mean you still want me to adopt you? ‘Cause if so, I am ready when you are.

Luna: I was ready the moment the paternity test said that you were my father.

[Luna sniffles]


Hollis: Tom, man, I’m sorry…

[electricity buzzes] …about going through your personal stuff.

Thomas: You do not need to apologize, Hope. I left town and we were completely in love with each other. And I come back and Douglas runs into your arms. Of course you thought I was back to pick up where we left off.

Hope: Oh, it’s, uh– it is no secret that this has been a struggle for me, learning about you and Paris and what it means for you, for us, for our family. So, yes, my feelings have been a bit all over the place. But, um, you know how I feel. You know that I feel like it’s a bit of an overnight engagement, that you were just rushing into a future with another woman and trying to leave our past behind as quickly as possible.

Thomas: That’s not what this is.

Hope: No, I know. You’ve explained it to me what evolved between the two of you over in Europe. I know. Ultimately, what I am trying to say with this apology is that if that is what you want, a future with Paris, then I wish you the best.

Thomas: You mean that?

Hope: Yeah. I mean, maybe this is all meant to be, right? And if it is, I–I– I hope it is everlasting and wonderful.

Thomas: That does mean a lot to me. Look, I, uh– I meant to tell you about my plans. I’m heading back to France with Paris and Douglas. And I know that you wish you had spent more time with our son.

Hope: Yes. But I am sure we will be able to work it out. I understand that he now has a home in France and he is happy there, so…

Thomas: You know, I am never gonna take our son away from you. I promise. Douglas loves you so much.

Hope: And I love him… so much. Look…

[Thomas sighs]

[Hope sighs] This is really hard. Um, I’m sorry for everything. And, uh, I hope you understand me having to move on with my life. And I know that’s exactly what you’re gonna do. But… I want you to make me a promise. A lot a guys are gonna come calling. Pick the right one. And promise me you’ll make it work no matter what. Come here. Bye, Hope.

Hope: Bye.

Steffy: What was that for?

Finn: I just don’t want you to forget.

Steffy: Forget what? That my husband is an amazing kisser?

Finn: No. I just– I don’t want you to forget how much I love you. Never question that, okay? [sighs]

Brooke: Is everything okay over there?

Hope: No, it’s fine. It’s just I– I’m having a hard time concentrating, and I’m making all of these little mistakes.

Brooke: Would you like an extra set of eyes on it?

Hope: Well, you know what I have to inventory today? Jewelry. And you know what kind of jewelry? Rings. So…

Brooke: Honey, I know you’re upset to find out about Thomas and Paris’s engagement. But he made a decision because you made a decision. More than once.

Hope: We both understand the situation. It’s just… I’m having difficulty understanding how he was able to move on so quickly.

Brooke: I think there’s more going on here. I think you wanted to reunite with Thomas so badly for another reason.

Deacon: I keep looking to where the stage was set up, expecting him to play. Just can’t wrap my head around the fact that Tom’s gone.

Hollis: The place just really isn’t the same without him.

Deacon: He was only with us for a short time, and he really became a part of the team, didn’t he?

Hollis: Yeah, he did.

Deacon: Hey, welcome back.

Luna: Hi.

Deacon: Sit down.

Luna: Thank you.

Poppy: Thank you.

Bill: Uh, I read about what happened with your employee. My condolences.

Poppy: I’m sorry, Deacon. It was a real tragedy.

Deacon: I appreciate that. Tom’s deeply missed.

Bill: One of Deacon’s employees died here. It was during the live music night.

Luna: Oh, my God. Deacon, I’m so sorry for your loss.

Deacon: Thank you. Just like your mom said, it was a real tragedy. We’re all still in shock.

Luna: Yeah, I can only imagine.

Bill: Did Tom have any family? Siblings? Kids?

Deacon: I– Not that I know of.

Steffy: I have never questioned your love for me or our family. Okay?

Finn: Mmm. Look, I know. But wait. I just– [sighs] Look, I wanna tell you this. I’ve been thinking a lot lately, and I want you to fully understand that… I know I have given you reason to wonder if I’ve truly been putting you first. I mean, especially recently. And I don’t want that to be a worry. Okay? Not anymore. I’m really sorry.

Hope: Well, of course it is about more than just Thomas being able to move on from me.

Brooke: Well, good. I’m glad that you can see that.

Hope: Douglas is involved, so obviously it becomes so much more complex. But I know that this was my choice. I had ample opportunity to say yes to a marriage with Thomas, and I just– I wasn’t ready to say yes.

Brooke: Mm-hmm. And we know Thomas can be impulsive.

Hope: Oh, is that what this feeling is, all these knots in my stomach? Because I am worried that he is going back to that impulsive nature.

Brooke: Well, that could be it, but I think there’s something else going on here that I’m not even sure you’re aware of.

Hope: Like what?

Brooke: Honey. Your feelings for Finn.

Hope: Mom–

Brooke: Just hear me out. You told me you were having these feelings. And then Thomas comes back in town, and suddenly you’re trying to pick up where you left off with him. Maybe this is just a way for you to run away from your attraction to Steffy’s husband.

Bill: Thank you.

Deacon: I didn’t know Tom for a long time, but he never mentioned a family. Definitely not any sons or daughters.

Luna: It’s awful. I mean, I remember suggesting that we come here for live music that night. Did you know him well?

Deacon: I was learning about Tom, about his music. He was so excited that he was gonna play again on stage. I guess back in the day, he was actually pretty successful. And the thing I know about Tom or remember about him, was he always had a smile on his face. I mean, he had his challenges, you know, but he was working through ’em. At least I thought so. Apparently, Tom died of a drug overdose.

Finn: I let myself lose sight of what’s important. Sometimes I get carried away with helping people and believing in the good.

Steffy: I mean, you were like that with me when we first met, and I never want you to change that about yourself.

Finn: Yeah, okay, but that’s no excuse. I asked that you embrace Sheila and include her. This woman who has been nothing but destructive in her life and our happiness. You forgive me? [sighs]

Hope: The connection between Thomas and me was very real. It was passionate. It was exciting. He made me feel like I was the only woman that he ever saw, that I was the only woman that he would ever want to be with.

Brooke: And I’m glad that he made you feel secure, honey. It was probably a breath of fresh air after everything that Liam put you through. But I just feel like maybe… it’s a false sense of security.

Hope: What does that mean?

Brooke: Well–[sighs] I have had experience in this area. I’ve been involved in passionate relationships, and… sometimes you ignore very important key ingredients that should be involved. I feel like maybe you’re covering up. You’re just running after Thomas in order to forget about the feelings that you have about Finn.

Hope: Are you suggesting that I am using Thomas?

Brooke: No. Not intentionally.

Hope: I love that man, Mom, and I have been grieving the loss of our relationship. And now that I know that there is no chance for us, that we don’t have a future, I–

Brooke: I know the feelings that you two have. Those were real. But I also know the history you had. I know what Thomas put you through and how hard you worked to get past all of that. [sighs] You know what I want for you? I want you to find the man of your dreams, somebody that makes you happy, makes you feel secure, respected, and loved. And you will find that, you know? You will. It just won’t be Finn. It can’t be Finn.

Luna: Hey, Hollis, I’m sorry about your co-worker.

Hollis: I really appreciate that. Yeah, he, um– he was a really good guy.

Luna: Hey, if it makes you feel better, maybe you should come out with us next time I go out.

Hollis: Yeah, for sure. That’d be awesome.

Bill: Yeah. With R.J. Her boyfriend.

Hollis: I’m well aware… [clears throat]…sir.

Luna: Okay, we’re all friends, Dad. I’ll just text you.

Hollis: Sounds good.

Bill: What? Oh, come on. Can you blame me? All right, until you graced my life, I’ve only had boys, and… I know how guys’ minds work.

Luna: Oh! [scoffs]

Poppy: And you thought you missed out on all the years of your father embarrassing you in front of cute guys.

Luna: Stop.

Bill: Oh, no. Listen. I can do embarrassing really well. But, more importantly, I will always look out for you and for your mother.

Poppy: Aw, Bill. You really have changed our lives in so many wonderful ways. All these new experiences and the fact that Luna doesn’t have to wonder anymore. She has the doting father that she’s always wanted and deserved. And I can’t wait to witness it all, to live it. Truly, Bill, I’m so grateful for this future that we now have… with you. And I don’t wanna look back ever again.

Finn: I handled this whole thing wrong. I said things and I did things that I wish I could take back. And you deserve none of it. What you really deserve is to be loved and respected and heard. And I’m gonna do all of it. I promise that from this day forward, I will always put you first.

Brooke: I truly believe that you wanna reconcile with Thomas because you’re afraid of the feelings you have for Finn.

Hope: Okay, hold on. I am not afraid of my feelings. I am just trying to understand those feelings and what they mean. But obviously Thomas’s return was unexpected and it has caused a bit of confusion, given the fact that my feelings for him haven’t just disappeared.

Brooke: I know.

Hope: It’s still very fresh for me.

Brooke: Okay. I understand that. I won’t expect for you to be over it. But, honey, if you really wanted to be with Thomas, you would have accepted one of his proposals. [Hope sighs] And you didn’t. I know you said that you’re not ready. But I don’t think I’m far off saying that you’re trying to reconcile with Thomas ’cause you wanna push those feelings away. Those feelings that you have, you know, at least make them easier to ignore.

Hope: Mom, none of this has been easy.

Brooke: Honey, you are a good person, and you deserve so much more. But I just don’t want you to fall for Steffy’s husband. I know you don’t wanna get involved in that.

Hope: No. Of course I don’t. [sighs]

Deacon: I’m sorry. Uh, Hollis, what were you making?

Hollis: Marg. Rocks. No salt.

Deacon: Okay. No problem. Uh, this one’s on us. If you just give us a second, take care of that for you, all right?

Man: Okay. Thanks.

Deacon: Okay. Hey. You all right?

Hollis: Yeah. You know, I’m just–I’m still kind of struggling with everything, you know?

Deacon: Yeah, I know. I know. It’s tough to march on. As far as feeling off, I mean, Spencer really took me off guard.

Hollis: Yeah. I know the feeling. He’s a very protective guy.

Deacon: Well, I mean, he’s got a daughter now. That’s to be expected. But that’s not what talking about. I mean, he gave me his condolences for Tom, and he was–I don’t know– understanding. Kind. Definitely not the guy I know.

Hollis: I just–I–I still can’t get it, man. I mean, he was such a nice guy. Overdose. It doesn’t make sense. He was in such a good place, man.

Deacon: I know. Look, you know, we may never know what challenges Tom was dealing with, you know, what demons he was wrestling with. I can’t stop thinking that we must have missed something. How did we not pick up on something? [sighs] Look, Hollis, you, uh– you wanna get off the floor for a few minutes? Maybe go in the back and do something for me?

Hollis: Yeah. Sure. Whatever you want, boss.

Deacon: Just go back and, uh–I don’t know– straighten up the supply closet, you know, take a little inventory, take a few breaths. Okay?

Hollis: Okay.

Deacon: Okay.


Hollis: Tom’s bag.

Luna: Okay, renting out an entire venue for a father/daughter dance is where I draw the line.

Bill: Just tell me who you’re listening to, and I’ll hire them.

Luna: No, it’s not gonna happen.

Poppy: I have to admit that our girl has never been a big fan of parties in her honor.

Bill: How about a dance party right in our living room? How about that?

Luna: Okay, fine. If we have to.

Poppy: By the way, have I mentioned it how thrilled I am that your Luna’s father?

Bill: She’s mentioned that.

Brooke: I can see it clearly because I’m on the outside looking in. And you getting involved with Thomas would be a distraction from Finn, a way to push down those feelings. I also know that you’re afraid of turning into somebody else.

Hope: Who?

Brooke: Me. It’s okay. I know how you feel, sweetie. You’re terrified of that. And you’re on the precipice of becoming exactly like your mother if you allow yourself to have those feelings for Finn.

Steffy: I appreciate everything that you’re saying. I really do. Look, I have to admit it was– it was really hard at the beginning. I mean, the way you were just talking about Sheila, it was– it was really upsetting. And I thought I was losing you all over again.

Finn: No. Honey, never, okay? I was just– I was just momentarily led astray by my emotions.

Steffy: Sheila knew how to fan those emotions.

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: Look, I don’t wanna talk about her anymore. I can’t. I’m done. [sighs]

Finn: Okay. And, like, I– I understand if you can’t forgive me right now. But just know that I will spend the rest of our lives trying to get forgiveness for this, okay?

Steffy: Finn, I– I believe you. I believe what you’re saying. That’s why I forgive you. [sighs, laughs]

Finn: Okay. I will never let you down again. Okay? I love you.

Steffy: Oh!

Finn: I love you so much.

Steffy: I love you. I– It’s you and me, Finn. [Finn chuckles] We can’t lose sight of that. And we can never let anything or anyone come between us again. Okay?

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: Oh, I love you. [Steffy sighs]

Brooke: With Thomas engaged to Paris, it’s more important than ever that you don’t let these feelings take over. I’m serious, Hope. You can’t allow yourself to feel that way for Steffy’s husband.

Hope: You always know how to make me feel better, Finn.

Finn: Look, you don’t have to pretend with me, Hope. I can see you’re reeling,

Hope: But should I be?

Finn: So you have to forfeit your right to be upset because he’s marrying someone else? No. Look, your feelings are justified.

Hope: Thomas and Paris’s engagement really caught me off guard.

Finn: [sighs] Well, maybe you were hoping that he would come home and pick up with you.

Hope: You really do know me well.

Finn: We’ve been sharing a lot lately. Look, and I hope you know that I’m saying this to you as a friend, but I do think that Thomas is truly committed to Paris. And look, that’s a good thing, okay? Not only for him, but especially for you.

Thomas: Hey, buddy, show your aunt those pictures you took in the Luxembourg Gardens.

Douglas: They’re just practice.

Thomas: No, they’re not just practice, they’re amazing.

Douglas: Dad’s just saying that because most of them are of Paris.

Steffy: Oh, I like this new hobby.

Douglas: Paris said it’s a great way to get to know a place. We go out exploring. She even lets me use her cool camera.

Paris: And you take some awesome photos. His natural composition is so, so impressive. You can tell he’s an artist, the way he sees the world. And I know Steffy’s gonna love them.

Steffy: I’m sure. But you know what else I love? I love this. This beautiful little family. And the smile on my brother’s face. I can see how excited you are about the future. And I’m really thrilled how close you all become.

Eric: Well, I have to say, it makes me very, very happy that my grandkids are– are willing to carry on our family traditions. There you are.

Brooke: Weddings in this house are always beautiful.

Eric: I was very touched that he wants to do it here. I can’t wait to get started.

Ridge: All right, we don’t know when that’s gonna be.

Brooke: Thomas and Paris may have a long engagement.

Eric: Maybe. But whenever it is, I’m thrilled that it’ll be here in this room.

Ridge: Same.

Donna: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we all want Thomas and Paris to be happy and satisfied, but, I mean, come on. Are you guys all buying this whole wedding thing? Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against Paris or their relationship, I– I just have to wonder if Thomas is over Hope.

[theme song playing]

Donna: Look, I’m not trying to stir anything up.

Brooke: No, you’re just concerned.

Ridge: But why? What are you concerned about? I talked to Thomas. I discussed it with him. And you saw him with Paris today, right?

Donna: Yeah. Yeah, sure. They were cute, and everyone is happy for them, so of course he’s gonna deny his feelings for Hope.

Ridge: He’s not denying his feelings for Hope.

Eric: No, he’s not, is he?

Ridge: No, he’s not. He will always have feelings for Hope. There’s gonna be a part of him that will always love her, and the same with Thomas. They’re always gonna be a little family together. But he’s with– with Paris now. This is what he wants. And I think they’re good for each other.

Thomas: Is my sister giving us the stamp of approval?

Steffy: You don’t need my approval but I will say that I am elated.

Paris: Ah, so are we.

Thomas: Yes, we are, and we’re even more excited to share the good news.

Steffy: You have more news?

Douglas: What is it?

Paris: It’s about the wedding.

Steffy: Oh, the wedding. I mean, are you thinking about eloping? Because if you want to, you could probably, you know, do it here. Douglas and I, we could be your witnesses.

Thomas: As fun as that might be, we wouldn’t want to disappoint great granddad.

Steffy: Granddad? Why?

Thomas: Well, we’d love to do the wedding at his house, make it a traditional Forrester family wedding.

Hope: Finn, I appreciate your support more than I can say.

Finn: Oh, I feel a “but” coming.

Hope: But I still think it is way too soon for an engagement, let alone planning a wedding.

Finn: Hope, no one is pushing them.

Hope: Steffy is.

Finn: Does she even know about the ceremony?

Hope: I don’t know if she knows about the ceremony, but she knew about them being together and said nothing, so Steffy would do anything to keep me and Thomas apart. And she certainly, I guarantee you, is probably pushing Thomas and Paris together.

Finn: Yeah, I don’t think she is. Yes, she believes in them. But you know what? I believe in you. And no offense to my brother in law, but I really mean it. I think you can do a whole lot better than Thomas.

Donna: Look, I’m not questioning Thomas’ love for Paris. I’m just curious about the timing of this wedding.

Ridge: Don’t be too curious about that. We don’t even know when they’re gonna do this.

Donna: But then why did he have to stand here and announce–

Ridge: Because he’s in love with somebody, wants to move on with his life. What is so hard to–?

Eric: I understand this here. Thomas’ feelings for Hope do complicate things.

Ridge: [sighs]

Donna: You think? Really? Because Hope had to leave the room. I mean, is she even okay?

Brooke: She was rocked by this.

Ridge: And I get that. I’m not insensitive to it, I’m– I’m sorry for what she’s going through.

Brooke: What she shared with Thomas was very special to her, and when it ended that way, it knocked her completely off her feet. Look, I am not lobbying for them to be together. I’m not. She’s my daughter, and I’m concerned. She’s lost, and she’s– confused by this. Do you think that maybe Steffy might be playing a part here? Maybe she is pushing Thomas and Paris together to keep him away from Hope.

Steffy: Wow, Douglas, these photos are incredible.

Douglas: We had a lot of fun taking them.

Thomas: Yeah, and Paris is a great subject.

Paris: Hey, I give all the credit to the photographer, though I must say, the selfie is my favorite.

Steffy: [laughing] I’m impressed you could do that with this camera. You’re really good. I’m really surprised, actually. You almost look as happy as you do right now.

Douglas: I’m excited about the wedding.

Thomas: Yeah, but it’s gonna take a little while to plan, right? We want everything to be perfect.

Douglas: As long as we’re all together, it will be.

Thomas: [chuckles]

Douglas: I miss my mom and my little sister, but I like my life the way it is now. Paris makes dad really happy. That means a lot to me.

Paris: Oh, and you and your dad mean so much to me. You make me feel very special.

Steffy: Having the three of you here makes me feel really special, too.

Paris: It’s good to be back.

Steffy: I’m so glad that you’re back, my goodness. It’s been way too long. Oh, hey, um, Kelly and Hayes, they’re playing in the guest house if you want to go join them.

Douglas: Yeah.

Steffy: See you in a minute.

Douglas: Bye.

Thomas: [sighs] Thanks for having us over, sis.

Steffy: Are you kidding? All the times we’ve texted and spoke on the phone, I finally get to see you face to face. It’s so nice. Here, let me get you a refill. Um, Douglas? I mean, how sweet and– and just a kind, smart boy in the way he talked about the two of you. It’s really beautiful.

Thomas: I know, I know. And we’re so proud of him. He’s so mature. He’s always just right there.

Paris: Yeah, he really knows how to express himself.

Thomas: Yeah.

Paris: I just hope that he can talk to Hope and actually get through to her.

Steffy: Talk to Hope about what?

Paris: I think she still wants to be with Thomas.

Finn: Thomas and I, we get along, and my kids love their uncle. I just– I don’t think he’s the right guy for you.

Hope: Well, I think that’s a bit of a moot point now.

Finn: You’re having a hard time with his engagement. I understand.

Hope: Oh, you do? You understand? Because I don’t understand any of this. It wasn’t long ago, he left town, and then he comes back engaged. It just–

Finn: Look, I can only tell you what I’ve heard from Steffy, but Thomas and Paris are in love, and they want a life together.

Hope: Why?

Finn: Wait, why do they want a life together?

Hope: No, I just, I keep asking myself that. Why did I turn him down?

Finn: Well, I can’t answer that question, but I do think it’s the right one to ask.

Hope: I can’t say yes. I don’t know what is wrong with me. I mean, Thomas proposes. I say no, but I don’t want to lose him. But the idea forever absolutely terrifies me. It’s just like– I don’t know what is happening to me.

[birds chirping]

Ridge: Steffy didn’t push Thomas and Paris together.

Brooke: She did tell Thomas that he can’t trust Hope.

Eric: Paris is not someone that Thomas just met. They used to live together.

Donna: Yeah, look, we all know that. But they weren’t lovers.

Brooke: They were roommates.

Eric: They were friends.

Ridge: Yes, they were friends. And then they fell in love with each other. Isn’t that amazing? No one forced them together.

Brooke: Okay, look, I’m not saying that’s the only reason. It’s just Thomas does value his sister’s opinion very much.

Ridge: Okay. [chuckles] Thomas is excited about his future with Paris, and so is Douglas. He loves Paris. And I’m– I didn’t even know what to say to this. I’m sorry about Hope. I’m sorry she’s going through this. But Thomas has moved on, not because of Steffy, but because of what he wanted. He’s moved on. And maybe your daughter can do the same. Maybe… she will find someone else, somewhere else.

Paris: I wasn’t gonna bring this up around Douglas.

Steffy: You have an issue with Hope?

Paris: No. No, I just– I’m aware of her feelings for Thomas.

Steffy: Well, she hasn’t exactly been hiding them. She may say that she’s worried that this is going way too fast, but I know that’s not the truth.

Thomas: That’s right. When it’s right, you know. You know, we just, we popped in over there. We dropped the news on everyone, and so it’s a very new thing.

Paris: Yeah, and it’s gonna take a little bit of time to adjust, but I’m not feeling insecure about it at all. I’m completely confident in our love for each other.

Steffy: You should be. I haven’t seen Thomas this happy and content in a very long time. And if Hope truly cared about him, she would see it, too.

Thomas: Steffy–

Steffy: I’m not wrong. The way Hope has been acting lately… makes me wonder what’s really going on with Hope.

Hope: I don’t know what this is.

Finn: It’s a shock.

Hope: No, shock… I would understand. Envy, even regret. But this, what I am feeling, it– It doesn’t make any sense. If I wanted Thomas, if I really wanted Thomas, all I had to do was say yes.

Finn: Yeah, but you didn’t.

Hope: No, I turned him down. And I am starting to wonder, is it just because I can’t have him?

Finn: Oh, like, I– I don’t know about that. But one thing that I do know is that you will find love again. Okay? People are drawn to you, Hope. All right? People want to be around you. And someday, someone is gonna show up and make you feel the same way. I assure you, Hope, There is life after Thomas.

Ridge: You don’t want to go down the pool with dad and Donna?

Brooke: No.

Ridge: Might clear your head on.

Brooke: [chuckles] Could take a lot more than fresh air to make me feel better about this.

Ridge: I’m sorry. I think Hope is gonna bounce back.

Brooke: You do? She’s all over the place right now.

Ridge: And I am sorry about that. I am. But it doesn’t change the situation. Thomas has moved on, he’s– He’s found some joy in his life. Hope’s gonna find somebody. Someone special to share her life with. Okay?

Brooke: Okay.

[distant birds squawking]

Thomas: Paris and Douglas are taking a little walk on the beach.

Steffy: She really is incredible with him.

Thomas: She is.

Steffy: And he absolutely adores her.

Thomas: We both do.

Steffy: So, uh, a wedding at Granddad’s.

Thomas: Yeah, well, you know, feels like, at some point, you gotta keep the tradition alive.

Steffy: What better way than to become a Forrester?

Thomas: That’s what I was thinking. Though I hope I didn’t make it weird asking granddad in front of everyone.

Steffy: Oh, you mean in front of Hope.

Thomas: [sighs] She’s struggling, Steff.

Steffy: She turned you down, Thomas. She didn’t want a life with you. You know who wants a life with you?

Thomas: [clears throat]

Steffy: Paris. She wants to be your wife. I mean, more than that. She’s just fantastic. She’s wonderful.

Thomas: Yeah, she really is.

Steffy: And I can really see how much you and Paris love each other and I know Douglas sees that, too.

Thomas: Yeah, well, he’s definitely her biggest fan.

Steffy: Well, I don’t blame him. Like I said, she’s wonderful. She’s kind. She’s sweet. She’s beautiful. Like I could go on and on.

Thomas: Yeah, she’s all of those things and more.

Steffy: I can really see how much she lights you up. I haven’t seen you this free and at ease in a very long time, probably since you started wanting Hope. Look, I don’t want to put all of it on her, but you were never enough. And as hard as you tried, you could just never measure up. And that’s not right, Thomas. And it’s not fair, because I know you, and I know that you’re an extraordinary man. All right, let’s, let’s put all of this behind us, okay? Put Hope behind you. Take Paris, take Douglas, and go to Europe and live a spectacular life. ‘Cause I’m telling you, when you come back, Hope will have moved on. She’ll be on to another man.

Finn: You and Thomas were more about timing than anything.

Hope: Timing?

Finn: Yeah. I mean, he offered you something that you needed in that moment, a one woman man. And I understand that kind of appeal and that kind of security and why it would have a huge impact on you.

Hope: Well, then why did I reject his proposals? People do have long engagements, and we were committed. So did I let the right guy go? We had incredible chemistry. I mean, did I make a mistake?

Finn: No, Hope, listen, the– the right guy for you is still out there.

Hope: Except I shouldn’t have to hear that. I have a wonderful life. I have a happy family. I have a great career.

Finn: You want love, too, right? And if anyone deserves it, it’s you. People look up to you. Hope you have a message that affects people all over the world, but you gotta be your best self. Don’t let these guys get you down. Right? You thought it was… Liam, and it never really was Thomas. But when you least expect it, the guy that you are meant to be with is gonna be standing right in front of you.

Thomas: I’m asking you again… Will you marry me? Yes or no, Hope? Will you be my wife?

Paris: I can’t believe Thomas said that.

Ridge: He put you on the spot a little bit, didn’t he?

Paris: No, it’s amazing. Being asked be married at the Forrester Estate? Shows how excited Thomas is to be marrying me.

Ridge: Yes, he as beaming. And so are you, my future daughter-in-law.

Brooke: So you didn’t discuss venues before?

Paris: No. It’s been such a whirlwind, but this, this is perfect.

Brooke: Any idea when?

Paris: No, um– But hopefully soon. I cannot wait to be Thomas’ wife. [sighs] ♪♪

Li: Finn?

Finn: Oh, hey, Mom.

Li: What are you doing here? I thought you were with Steffy and the kids today.

Finn: Oh, I’m on call, Had to scrub in for an emergency. I’m just wrapping up.

Li: Good. You should be home with your family. ♪♪ [theme music playing] ♪♪

Finn: If anyone can understand this insane schedule, it’s you, Mom.

Li: It’s not that I don’t admire your work ethic. I do. It’s important, however, to spend every moment you can with your family. Particularly after these last few months.

Finn: Steffy and I are good, Mom.

Li: Are you really though? Everything that’s happened with Sheila has caused so much conflict and drama in your marriage. You can’t let that happen. ♪♪

Brooke: Today was quite a surprise for all of us.

Paris: Yeah, I know this was a family party. Thomas and I didn’t mean to make it all about us.

Ridge: Why not? There’s a lot to celebrate.

Paris: Well, not everyone’s celebrating.

Ridge: Hope, you mean.

Paris: Yeah, she has her own opinions about Thomas’ and I’s engagement, we thought she would just move on, I mean, she had her chance with him and she let him go.

Brooke: She wasn’t ready to accept his proposal.

Paris: But I was. That’s why I said yes. That’s why I’m wearing his ring. I can’t wait to fully commit my life to Thomas. ♪♪

Ridge: And we’re ready to welcome you into the family.

Paris: Thanks, Ridge. Now if you don’t mind, I am off to find my adorable fiancé.

Thomas: What do you say, Hope? Will you marry me?

HOPE: Thomas… You know how I feel about you. And you know I want to be with you…

Thomas: “But…” You’re not ready to marry me.

HOPE: Thomas…

Thomas: It’s okay. I was expecting that. That’s why I asked this third time. I knew what you were gonna say. ♪♪ You can’t marry me. You’ll never be able to marry me. And that’s why I’ve moved on with Paris. ♪♪

Li: Sheila is obsessed with you, Finn. I don’t care if she gave birth to you. Her fixation goes beyond that.

Finn: No, I get it, Mom.

Li: I hope so. She nearly orphaned your son, left me for dead. You can never put your family in jeopardy ever again, Finn.

Finn: I know.

Li: Sheila doesn’t deserve your love and sympathy, Finn, okay? Save it for your patients, for your family.

Finn: I already told you, Mom, Steffy and I, we’re– we’re in a better place.

Li: Hope to God it stays that way. You need to prioritize your wife and kids. They must always come first.

Finn: Yeah, they do. They do. Of course they do. I mean– I love Steffy and the kids more than I can say.

Li: Don’t prove it to me. Prove it to them. Steer clear of Sheila. Don’t let her back in. Cut her out permanently.

Finn: I have. I told her I can’t see her anymore. No, I mean it. Sheila knows that I’m done, okay? And I’m serious this time.

Li: Good. But you know, you should never have ever been in the same room as her. Do you hear me, son? [chuckles] Don’t ever make that mistake again. If you’re not careful, Sheila will be the death of your marriage. ♪♪

Ridge: Should we grab our bathing suits and meet dad and everybody else in the pool?

Brooke: And leave our quiet little cozy spot?

Ridge: I was hoping you say that. I was also hoping to see you in the bikini.

Brooke: Well, I have an idea. When we go home later, why don’t we go skinny dipping?

Ridge: Get your purse, I’ll get the car. Let’s get out of here.

Brooke: [laughing] Oh, my gosh, you make me laugh.

Ridge: I didn’t think Hope would take it this hard.

Brooke: She still has feelings for Thomas.

Ridge: But she did reject him more than once.

Brooke: She didn’t want the relationship to end.

Ridge: Well, it has ended. Thomas moved on.

Brooke: And you don’t think this lifetime commitment is happening too quickly?

Ridge: I don’t know, they’re young, but they’re ready. You think they’re ready?

Brooke: Ridge, that’s a classic rebound. And that’s what Hope’s worried about.

Ridge: All right, I talked to Thomas about that, and this is what he wants. This is the life he wants. This engagement is real, and I believe it and… maybe Hope should believe it, too. ♪♪

Hope: You… didn’t mean it. Your proposal to me just now.

Thomas: Just trying to prove a point. And I think I did. It wouldn’t matter. I could grab our entire family, mine and yours, bring them together in here. I could get Carter to marry us right now. Your answer would still be no. That broke my heart before. But I’m okay now because I have found love with Paris. So my heart is whole. Like you and I, we will always be there for each other. I mean, Douglas connects us forever. But I’ve moved on. I found my person with Paris. And you’ll find your person, too.

Hope: [sniffles]

Thomas: I’m happy, Hope. And I know you’ll find happiness, too. ♪♪

Ridge: Hope couldn’t expect Thomas to just sit at the sidelines, right? It’s not fair. It’s not love, and it’s a little selfish.

Brooke: It hasn’t really been that long. I mean, Thomas jumped from Hope’s arms into Paris’.

All right, and I know she’s struggling with this, but if she wants what’s best for Thomas, she needs to get on board.

Brooke: She’s been struggling in a few areas. She hasn’t been herself lately.

Ridge: I know what that means.

Brooke: Well, I just think she was hoping that when Thomas came back in town with her son that maybe they’d get back together. But that’s not what happened. He didn’t come back to have a life with Hope. He came back engaged to another woman.

Ridge: What are you getting at?

Brooke: Hope’s been all over the place, and… I’m just worried she might do something that she will regret. [distant siren wailing]

Li: What about Hope?

Finn: What about her?

Li: Is she so close with that father of hers?

Finn: Yeah.

Li: Oh, dear.

Finn: At one point, you know, she cut him off as a result of his involvement with Sheila, but I think they’re trying to mend their relationship.

Li: Deacon must have a screw loose to be married to Sheila.

Finn: No, it’s not like Hope’s a big fan of Sheila.

Li: You and Hope have that in common, your ties with Sheila.

Finn: Well, mom, look, I already told you, Sheila’s not allowed around me or the kids, and Hope doesn’t allow her around Beth either.

Li: Well, finally I’m hearing some common sense. I don’t like how Hope is influencing you, though.

Finn: She’s not influencing me.

Li: What about your decision to stay for Sheila and Deacon’s wedding?

Finn: Yeah, I don’t, like– Yeah, I shouldn’t have done that, I just– I was there to get food, okay? It’s not like I was there by choice.

Li: But Hope was there by choice, and you could have left at any time. You chose to stay. That wasn’t only foolish and dangerous, and that was very disrespectful to your wife. You know how Steffy feels about Hope. Not only do you need to stay away from Sheila, you need to stay away from Hope. I only say this with love, son.

Finn: [chuckles] I know.

Li: Now get out of here. Go be with your wife. ♪♪

Paris: I know that Hope was a little shocked today when you announced that the wedding was gonna take place here.

Thomas: Yeah, I probably should’ve checked with you first, I didn’t– I kinda blurted that out, didn’t I?

Paris: No, no, no. I couldn’t be happier or more touched by everything that you said. It’s such an honor to be married here at your family’s estate.

Thomas: I’m glad you’re looking forward to it. I think everyone’s excited about the idea.

Paris: Yeah, everyone but Hope. I mean, I hate to say it, but it just seems like she’s playing the victim here, and I really don’t get why.

Thomas: Yeah, I understand what you mean, but I think for her, this is just hard. I mean, who would have expected me going off to Europe would have ended up with me finding love with you and– Yeah, I mean, Douglas is gonna have this new, amazing stepmom, and we’re getting married here– I think it’s just a lot for her to process.

Paris: I feel that. And just like I was saying to Ridge and Brooke, she had her moment, and she turned you down.

Thomas: Well, don’t worry about her. I’m focused on us and our life together. I found this wonderful, beautiful woman to spend the rest of my life with, and I am sure that she will find a man to spend the rest of her life with. ♪♪

Finn: Oh, uh– Oh, hi.

Hope: Finn, hi.

Finn: Um, have you seen, uh– Oh, hey, here it is. Steffy, she forgot this, so I thought I’d just swing by on my way home. You okay?

Hope: Yeah, I– I’m fine. I’m good. How are you?

Finn: Hope, what’s up? What’s going on? Something’s up. You can talk to me.

Hope: It’s nothing, really.

Finn: Hope, it’s not nothing.

Hope: Okay, well, I just, I don’t want to dump all of my problems on you.

Finn: That’s what friends are for.

Hope: Okay, fine. Uh– Did you know that Thomas was engaged to another woman? ♪♪

Brooke: Does it seem like I’m not happy for your son?

Ridge: A little bit.

Brooke: [sighs] Well, I’m just saying maybe Paris is just a distraction for him. What about that? I hope she’s aware of what she might be getting herself into.

Ridge: I think Thomas has been nothing but transparent with Paris.

Brooke: Maybe he’s in denial. He can’t just get over an intense breakup overnight. And Hope is trying to come to grips with him, too.

Ridge: Listen, I’m sorry it didn’t work out with Hope. I’m sorry it didn’t work out with the two of them. But at least Thomas didn’t come here with some floozy from Pacoima. He found a really nice girl. Paris is remarkable.

Brooke: Paris is a wonderful lady. She is. It’s just, how can he commit to her if he’s not fully over Hope?

Ridge: He is over Hope. Did you see these guys? They’re smitten with each other. They’re happy, and… I gotta believe that they know what they’re doing.

Brooke: Maybe he’s not being honest with himself.

Ridge: I know you’re in pain. I know you’re hurting for your daughter. I get it. But keep in mind that this is just temporary. Hope’s gonna be fine. And there is a man out there for her, I know that. ♪♪

Finn: Steffy filled me in on Thomas and Paris’ engagement. Definitely appears to have happened rather quickly.

Hope: Mm, yes. It wasn’t that long ago that he was proposing to me.

Finn: And you didn’t want to marry him.

Hope: I didn’t think I was rejecting Thomas. I just was rejecting the idea of another marriage at that time because I was still processing my divorce and trying to focus on the kids.

Finn: I feel for you, but I don’t think those are the only reasons.

Hope: What do you mean?

Finn: Okay, well, I’m talking about my brother in law, so I wanna– keep it nice. But I don’t blame you for not trusting Thomas and just letting go of everything that he did to you in the past.

Hope: Ah, okay, well, I moved on from that. I don’t get why everyone else can’t. And I also came to a place of trust with him. Or so I thought. Look, I know him, Finn, and I just– I think he has not given this enough time.

Finn: You think it’s impulsive?

Hope: Yes! That’s why I’m concerned.

Finn: I mean, Thomas has been known to battle impulsivity, but, I mean, it’s–

Hope: It is a weakness of his. Yes, he– Can make rash decisions without really thinking about the potential consequences.

Finn: Do you think this whole thing is gonna blow up?

Hope: I don’t want anyone in this situation to get hurt or to be disappointed, and I don’t want that for Thomas. I don’t want that for Paris, and I certainly don’t want that for Douglas.

Finn: No, no, you wanna protect your son from as much instability as possible.

Hope: Yeah, he is weathered enough as it is. First a divorce and then me breaking up with his father. And that’s not even what is the most upsetting part.

Finn: You still care about Thomas.

Hope: I just don’t understand the rush. I mean, first it’s a quickie engagement, and now they’re suddenly planning the wedding at Eric’s already? It’s just– It is too much.

Finn: Hey, look, you got this. Just try not to get so worked up.

Hope: I just feel like he’s running from something.

Finn: His feelings for you?

Hope: Does that sound conceited or…?

Finn: Conceited? No, come on. You– [chuckles] Hope– You could never sound conceited. You’re one of the most humble people I know. Seriously, Hope, you have no idea how incredible you are on all the wonderful qualities that you have to offer as a friend, as a mother, as a businesswoman. I so admire and respect everything that you stand for.

Hope: Well, thank you for saying that, Finn.

Finn: I mean, you know how I feel. Thomas, he was never good enough for you. That is the truth, Hope.

Hope: [sighs]

Finn: Hey. There is a man. Somewhere out there, some unbelievably lucky man, someone who’s going to come along and steal your heart.

Eric: We have so much to celebrate here today.

Thomas: You didn’t think this was gonna be some run-of-the-mill Fourth of July party, did you?

Ridge: We didn’t think you were gonna bring your own fireworks, so thank you.

Eric: Yeah. Well, once again, another toast. To Thomas and Paris. We’re very happy for you.

Ridge: Thomas and Paris. Cheers.

Carter: There ya go.

Paris: Cheers.

Eric: It’s nothing. [phone chime]

Thomas: Oh… Looks like– that Douglas is having such a great time with Steffy.

Paris: Oh, that’s so good. Oh, he was talking about how much he missed them. I’m so happy that Steffy allowed him to be a part of their little family day.

Thomas: Yeah, me too.

Donna: You know what? I was actually gonna go and join Luna and RJ. Does anyone wanna join me for swimming?

Paris: I could be talked into that.

Eric: Let’s give them a few more moments together. All right? Just alone, in a big, beautiful private pool? Young love. We all remember that.

Ridge: Oh, we do remember that.

Eric: See?

Brooke: You know what I remember? I remember those really skimpy little bathing suits you used to wear.

Ridge: Oh, you’re welcome.

Eric: Yeah, I think there’s another uniform a little more appropriate for the… the future here. And that’s a suit and tie, appropriate for the father of the groom. To Thomas and Paris. Another wedding in the Forrester family home. Cheers.

Ridge: Cheers.

[soft chatter]

Eric: Okay, where are they? In the kitchen?

Brooke: I don’t know. ♪♪ ♪

Paris: Thank you.

Carter: Congratulations, again.

Thomas: Thanks.

Carter: Especially you, Paris, it’s, um… it’s everything I wanted for you. After… everything. It’s good to see you so happy.

Paris: Very happy. Thank you, Carter.

Thomas: [chuckling]

Paris: [sighing] ♪♪


Brooke: You okay, sweetheart?

Donna: Because we all know the truth.

Eric: What truth is that?

Eric: Okay, so here’s what we gotta do, all right? Usually we have people standing here and… oh!

Ridge: Okay?

Eric: So what do you think? I mean, we’ve done this so many times here. Usually it’s the bride is there, and the groom is here, and Carter is in the middle. Is Carter doing this with you?

Paris: …a good question.

Eric: Did you ask him yet?

Paris: Thomas? You wanna–

Thomas: Uh, yeah. What’s up?

Paris: Your grandfather wants to talk logistics with us.

Eric: Yeah, I think we need to start planning this thing.

Eric: Yeah.

Thomas: Okay, well, then let’s get planning.

Eric: Okay. Now, I was just saying, instead of just standing here like we always do, maybe… ♪♪

Brooke: Hope?

Hope: Oh.

Brooke: You don’t have to be here, honey. Everybody would understand.

Hope: No, I can handle it. I can. It’s just… oh, I don’t understand why Thomas had to blindside me with it.

Brooke: I know, I’m sorry. I can see this is difficult for you.

Hope: I mean, it’s just that none of this is making sense to me. Why he had to rush in to another relationship so soon, and that they’re engaged. I mean, how is that a good idea? How is that good for our son?

Brooke: Okay… seeing how you’re reacting and your emotion… I have to ask… are you second guessing things? Do you wish you said yes to Thomas’s proposal? ♪♪ ♪♪

Carter: I don’t know if you guys discussed who might officiate your wedding, but I know you both pretty well, and I know what you’ve overcome to be here. So it’d be my honor to marry you.

Thomas: Uh, well, thank you. I appreciate that. Yeah, we just– we just got started, so… we have no idea where we’re going with this, but we’ll keep that in mind.

Paris: Yeah, just getting started is an understatement. I didn’t even realize we were getting married here until you asked Eric about it earlier.

Thomas: You don’t think I overstepped, do you?

Paris: No, no-no-no, not at all, this was a great idea.

Thomas: Okay, good. Good. I mean, I don’t care where we get married. I just want you to have the wedding you always dreamed about, that you fantasize about.

Paris: Well, that’s easy. And already accomplished. Because my wedding daydreams, I never thought about the flowers or the dress or the location or even the officiants. [laughing] What I thought about, when it comes to having a wedding, what I really want is just to feel safe and secure and really extremely connected to my groom, and Thomas, you’ve already given me that. So, where we get married doesn’t matter much to me. But if it’s gonna be at one of the most beautiful estates in Los Angeles, I absolutely cannot say no to that. Or to you. ♪♪

Eric: Well, it may be a fast engagement, but one thing’s obvious. I mean, Paris is glowing. I mean, she’s… absolutely in love with him.

Ridge: And he loves her.

Donna: So you, um… asked him about that?

Ridge: Yeah, but I mean, you heard what Dad said, that this whole engagement was too fast, I couldn’t just take it at face value.

Donna: Uh-huh, of course. Of course, because we all know how Thomas feels about Hope.

Ridge: How Thomas felt about Hope. They’re always gonna have a relationship. They share a son together.

Donna: Ridge. We all know that their feelings go deeper than just being parents to Douglas.

Ridge: I guess, I mean I realize some of that, sure.

Donna: Sorry. Okay. I just, I just, I really feel for Hope, especially when he announced that he wants to get married right away.

Eric: That was a shock. It’s gonna be a big blow for Hope.

Donna: Yeah, especially since Thomas and Hope… they’re still in love. ♪♪

Hope: Do I wish I had accepted?

Brooke: Despite my objections, I know you developed real feelings for Thomas.

Hope: Yeah, those feelings are still there. And they’re on Thomas’s side, too.

Brooke: I’m sorry, honey. You shouldn’t have to be here witnessing this. I know it was a shock to even find out about their engagement, and everybody seems happy for them. And Thomas is announcing getting married to Paris here in the family home.

Hope: That was a surprise.

Brooke: So, is that a yes? You do regret saying no to Thomas’s proposal? I mean, he did ask you twice, and you turned him down twice.

Hope: I wasn’t ready.

Brooke: I know, and I respect you for that. You were listening to your heart and to your feelings, and that’s good. But I have to wonder, if Thomas were to hand you a ring now and propose to you, what would you do? Knowing what you know now, would you say yes?

Hope: I don’t think it matters what I would say, because the woman that Thomas proposed to, the woman that he wants to marry here in this house, it isn’t me. It’s Paris. ♪♪

Hope: Thank you for being here for me.

Brooke: Of course.

Hope: Just, I had to get out of there. You don’t think I made too much of a scene, do you?

Brooke: No, no.

Hope: People just focused on the happy couple, right? The way it should be.

Brooke: Oh, honey.

Hope: I just, I don’t understand it, Mom. I mean, Thomas didn’t even allow himself to grieve our relationship, and now he’s engaged. No, sorry, not only engaged, they’re– they’re full-on in wedding planning mode, and it just, um… it is too much. Oh, gosh, I… I have to say something.

Brooke: Uh, wait. I think you should just give yourself a chance to calm down before you go talk to him.

Hope: Look, I can’t leave this party, I need– I need to talk to Thomas alone. He– He needs to hear what I have to say.

Brooke: Hope! [sighing] ♪♪

Ridge: All right, hi.

Thomas: Hi.

Ridge: How’s it going? Are you guys gonna come down to the pool? Because I think my dad and Donna are already splashing away.

Thomas: Yes, we are.

Paris: Yes, I’m trying to, but Thomas keeps distracting me.

Ridge: Okay.

Thomas: She’s a little distracting.

Ridge: Yeah. No, no, no. It’s… I will leave you. Just make– make it down there eventually. Would you, please?

Paris: Yes.

Thomas: Promise.

Ridge: Okay. All right. I’m sorry. One more thing. I, um… I couldn’t be happier for the two of you. That’s it.

Thomas: Thanks, Dad.

Paris: Thanks, Ridge. [laughing] Aw, he’s sweet.

Thomas: Yeah, he needs to drink more water.

Paris: Yeah, that, too. [laughing] He seems really happy for us.

Thomas: Yeah, he does.

Paris: That is something that I can’t get enough of saying.

Thomas: That there’s an us?

Paris: Yes, exactly.

Thomas: Yeah. It’s a good thing.

Paris: And even better, we get to be an “us” for the rest of our lives.

Thomas: Mmm. Yeah.

Paris: Oh, my goodness. I can’t wait to make this official, Thomas. I cannot wait to be your wife.

Thomas: Mmm. Hmm.

Paris: But first…

Thomas: Yeah?

Paris: Pool time.

Thomas: Okay, yes. I will be down there in just a minute.

Paris: Right.

Thomas: All right.

Paris: Bye.

Thomas: Bye. [chuckling] ♪♪ [sighing]

Ridge: Hey, you.

Brooke: [exhaling]

Ridge: Mm. How’d it go with Hope?

Brooke: Oh, not great. She’s hurting. I mean, I don’t blame Thomas for wanting to move on with his life and be happy… but it’s painful for her to hear him talking about his wedding.

Ridge: Yeah, I get that. I’m sorry. Didn’t have to be this way. She turned him down. ♪♪

Thomas: You said you needed more time, but I think we’re ready. I think we’re very, very ready. It’s time… for you to take this ring, put it on your finger. I don’t want to wait anymore. So, Hope… say you’ll make me the happiest man in the world. Say you’ll be my wife.

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

Hope: Thomas? I was… hoping to catch you alone. Where’s Paris?

Thomas: She’s out by the pool. Um… I could tell you were hurt earlier, and I think with all the wedding talk, it’s just… I hate seeing you upset.

Hope: Okay, so then don’t go through with this. Please, Thomas, don’t marry Paris. ♪♪ So she was right to say no. Absolutely. But that’s the choice she made. It’s a choice she has to live with, and she has to accept that Thomas is moving on with his life.

Brooke: In time, I’m sure she will. But the way Thomas is moving so quickly–

Ridge: He’s not doing any of this to hurt Hope. Honestly. [sighing]

Brooke: I asked her if she had any regrets.

Ridge: What’d she say?

Brooke: She said it doesn’t matter now. Thomas is engaged to Paris.

Ridge: Okay, but that’s not– what if he wasn’t? If he asked her right now, did this whole thing jar her into thinking that she should be married? What would she say if he asked her right now? ♪♪

Paris: Hey, sorry.

Ridge: Hey.

Paris: I thought Thomas should already be at the pool by now.

Ridge: Is he not?

Paris: No. Have you seen him?

Thomas: I don’t know why you’re bringing this up again.

Hope: [scoffs] I mean, after all– all of that, of course I am, Thomas. I am begging you to please just slow down for a minute. Stop and think, I mean… to go from proposing to me, and now you’re suddenly planning a wedding?

Thomas: Yeah, I proposed to you a bunch of times, and you said no, so I had to look after myself, and I left. I needed to have some space and take time.

Hope: Except you didn’t really take the time, though, did you? You just immediately jumped into another relationship.

Thomas: Paris is good for me. And she’s good for Douglas, too.

Hope: Don’t you think we… should be discussing what is best for our son? You can’t just erase me from your lives like that just to make it easier on you. Thomas, I am begging you to please try to remember what we shared, the love… that we had for each other.

Thomas: You had your chance, Hope.

Hope: [sighing]

Thomas: And you hurt me over and over again. You turned me down so many times.

Hope: I turned down the idea of a marriage, yes, because I wasn’t ready at the time, but that didn’t mean that I was turning down the idea of being with you. Please, Thomas. ♪♪ It doesn’t feel right. I am asking you to not just jump into a marriage with someone, for your sake and for Douglas’s sake. It was never over between us.

Thomas: How many times… am I supposed to be rejected and come back? How many times do you want me to try?

Hope: [sighing]

Thomas: Okay. It wasn’t time then. But how about I give it a third try? ♪♪ Will you marry me, Hope? Will you be my wife? ♪♪

ANNOUNCER: Here’s a look ahead.

Ridge: Tom’s moved on.

Brooke: Maybe he’s not being honest with himself.

Ridge: Hope’s gonna be fine.

Hope: You always know how to make me feel better, Finn.

Finn: You know what? I believe in you.

Deacon: There’s someone out here. What’s going on with you?

Hollis: Man, I can’t stop wondering why Tom overdosed.

Hope: Paris, you know that this engagement to Thomas is rushed. I mean, a few months ago, he wanted a life with me,

Paris: And now he’s over you. I can understand how my engagement to Thomas could be confusing and shocking for you. And I’d hoped that we could talk this through as friends. But then, instead, you made a play for my fiancé. [scoffs] We used to be close.

Hope: And I want that. But the life that I had with Thomas before he left LA.

Paris: He proposed to you. You said no.

Hope: Oh… It is not that simple. Thomas loved me. He wanted me to be his wife. I am a mother to his son. And, yes, he proposed to me. But you really think he just moved on from it that fast? So, uh, yes, I do believe that ring and your engagement is happening way too soon. So, yeah, I am concerned, for you and for Thomas. ♪

Carter: Thomas, man, you are full of surprises. Congratulations on your engagement.

Thomas: Thanks, man.

Eric: Now, finding someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with is a pretty rare thing. I’m proud of you. I wish you and Paris the best.

Thomas: Thanks, granddad.

Ridge: Hey. Hey.

Eric: Hello.

Carter: Happy Independence Day. There you are.

Eric: Hello, beautiful. Hi.

Ridge: Thank you so much for doing this.

Donna: Of course.

Eric: Of course. I mean, what better way to celebrate Independence Day than here in this wonderful, big old house?

Ridge: Yes.

Donna: Come. I need to talk to you.

Ridge: Hey, guys… come on.

Eric: Oh, let me see this.

Katie: [sighing] I’m not trying to come off as insecure or jealous or anything like that. I just… I’m still trying to wrap my head around you having a daughter.

Bill: And Poppy being in my life?

Katie: Yeah. I… I don’t know what it is about her. I just… I get a bad vibe. ♪♪

Poppy: Hey. Looks like you two are getting ready to celebrate.

R.J.: Are you sure you don’t want to come? Granddad would love to have you.

Poppy: I really appreciate that, but… I’m gonna wait for Bill to get home.

Luna: Where is he?

Poppy: Oh, he’s with Katie.

Luna: Uh, you’re not worried that Bill’s spending time with Katie, are you?

Poppy: I’m sure that they have a lot to discuss regarding Will.

Luna: Okay, Mom, I know you, and I can tell when something’s bothering you, but don’t make it more than what it is, okay? I’ve seen the way he looks at you, and trust me, you have nothing to worry about.

Bill: You’re getting a strange vibe from Poppy? What are you saying, Katie?

Katie: I’m not sure. I’m just wondering if you let your guard down too quickly. I care about you, Bill… and I don’t want to see you taken advantage of or hurt by Poppy. ♪♪ [light rock playing]

Thomas: It’s too bad that Steffy, Finn, and the kids couldn’t make it.

Ridge: Well, they both are so busy, they want to spend some time with their family. They’ll be here later.

Brooke: R.J. and Luna are on their way.

Eric: I’m glad to hear that. More the merrier. That’s what I love, this house full of love and laughter. The only thing better would be a couple of really dry martinis.

Donna: Sparkling water maybe.

Eric: That’s what I said, isn’t it?

Ridge: Where’s your bride-to-be?

Thomas: That’s actually a good question, I’m gonna find out. [music playing]

Hope: Paris, for years, I was the only woman in his life.

Paris: That’s not the case anymore.

Hope: No one falls out of love that quickly.

Paris: So what are you– what are you trying to say? That it’s only a matter of time before Thomas comes running back to you?

Hope: I am saying… be careful. Thomas is still very much a one-woman man. ♪♪ ♪♪

R.J.: Do you have everything?

Luna: Um, yeah, I think so.

R.J.: Yeah?

Luna: Mom?

Poppy: Have a great time, you two.

R.J.: Hey, if you change your mind and you want to come, you’re welcome.

Poppy: Aw, thanks, but I’m good. Okay.

R.J.: All right, bye.

Luna: Okay, bye. [door shuts]

Poppy: Why aren’t you home, Bill?

Bill: After everything we’ve been through, it’s nice to know that you still care about me so much.

Katie: Of course I do.

Bill: Right, because I’m the father of our son.

Katie: No, not just because of Will. Because I’ll always want what’s best for you.

Bill: For so long, I was certain that that was the two of us. Reuniting our family. ♪♪

R.J.: It’s good to see you, bro.

Thomas: You too. Yeah. How are you doing, Luna?

Luna: Good, how are you?

Thomas: Good. I’m good. Yeah. So, I mean, I’ve been trying to catch up with you.

R.J.: Oh, dude, it’s been crazy, you’ve left some big shoes to fill with Hope for the Future. Thanks.

Thomas: You’re doing just fine.

R.J.: Trying.

Thomas: Yeah.

R.J.: Enough about work. Come on. Look at you. Congratulations. You’re getting married.

Luna: I know. We’re so happy for you.

Thomas: Thank you. We’re really happy.

R.J.: Where’s the– Where’s the beautiful bride- to-be, anyways?

Thomas: That is a good question.

Paris: I don’t appreciate you warning me about Thomas’s loyalty when you’re the one making moves on him.

Hope: I’m being honest.

Paris: Huh. Honesty has been something me and Thomas’s relationship has been built on. We’ve shared so much. We’ve bonded on a very deep level. You know nothing about my relationship with Thomas or Douglas. Yeah, that’s a part of it, too, isn’t it? How Douglas has embraced me? I can see how much that stings.

Hope: Well, as Douglas’s mother, it would.

Paris: And I’m sensitive to that. You… you think this is some kind of rebound, like Thomas can never get over you. Thomas loves me with his eyes, his touch. We lay in bed and daydream about our home, our… our future together, raising our children. That’s something you and Thomas never had. He’s left you in the past, and it’s time for you to do the same. It’s time to respect our engagement and leave my fiancé alone. ♪♪

Paris: I don’t want any drama. I understand how hard this is for you. I get it.

Hope: Do you, Paris? I mean, do you really get how much Thomas and I loved each other?

Paris: You didn’t want to get married again, and that’s okay. But that’s not what Thomas wanted, so he moved on. Look, I… I know what you’re thinking. Thomas is a one-woman man. You were that woman. Not anymore. I am that woman now. ♪♪

Katie: I know you have a lot of guilt when it comes to what happened between you and me. But that’s not the man I see when I look at you.

Bill: Who do you see?

Katie: I see the man that I always knew was there. Someone strong and caring. You have a way of… making someone feel like they’re the only person in the world.

Bill: Wow. All this time, I thought I was bullheaded and arrogant and aggressive.

Katie: Yeah, and a sore loser and boastful and… did you mention bullheaded?

Bill: I think I did, yeah. I think I checked that box,

Katie: Okay, good, just wanted to make sure.

Bill: Mm-hmm. [laughing] I would also like to think that maybe I’ve grown up a little bit.

Katie: You most definitely have.

Bill: Well, I owe the vast majority of that to you. Best thing that ever happened to me. You know how I feel… how I’ve always felt. You’re the love of my life, Katie. ♪♪ Life goes on.

Thomas: Can I get you a drink?

Paris: Please.

Thomas: You got it.

Carter: Paris. Beautiful as always.

Paris: Thank you. Not too bad yourself.

Carter: That’s some piece of hardware you got there.

Paris: I know, Thomas did good, didn’t he?

Carter: He definitely did. I’m glad you found happiness. Congratulations. Thomas is a very lucky guy.

Paris: Yeah.

Carter: Well, I’ll let you two lovebirds catch up.

Paris: Ooh, ooh–

Thomas: There you go.

Paris: My hero.

Thomas: So, I was gonna send Charlie to come looking for you. What happened?

Paris: Did you miss me?

Thomas: Always. So? What happened? Where were you?

Paris: I was at the office. I had a few loose ends I needed to tie up.

Thomas: Hmm. I hope they’re all tied up. ‘Cause I’m not letting you out of my side for the rest of the night. ♪♪

Bill: Um, I’m sorry, Katie. I, uh… I feel like I’m sending you mixed signals. I will always love and care about you.

Katie: But you’re moving on with Luna and Poppy.

Bill: I am. And… And I’m happy. But I will always hold what we shared… Right here. We have so many wonderful memories. ♪♪ We had an incredible life. Family. I often wonder what it could have been if I hadn’t screwed things up.

Katie: So do I.

Bill: So, uh… what’s going on with you and, uh, what’s the name?

Katie: [laughing] Carter.

Bill: Carter– yeah, Carter.

Katie: Yeah… touché. Oh, gosh. I think… I think we’re better off as friends. Honestly… I can’t really see myself moving… moving on with any man at this point. I really wish that you… would think about what you say before you say it.

Bill: What do you mean?

Katie: It’s hurtful for you to say that I’m the love of your life when you don’t mean it.

Bill: I do mean it. Don’t ever doubt my love for you, Katie. ♪♪

[soft chatter] [music playing]

[soft chatter continues] [music continues]

Brooke: Are you okay? Being here with Thomas and Paris?

Hope: I mean, it’s… pretty surreal.

Eric: Listen, everybody, if I might say something for a second, just a second. I’m… very glad that you’re all here. I really am. That you decided to spend the Fourth with us. Thank you.

Ridge: And thank you for having us in your home. Right? Speaking of home… [sighing] …my son is home. And he brought a very special, very beautiful surprise. Paris, his fiancé. So let’s hear it for Thomas and Paris. Can we?

Eric: To Thomas and Paris.

All: Cheers.


Thomas: Um… I’m sure it’s kind of a surprise for everyone here that I came back and we are engaged. When I left LA, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I got over there to International, and I never would have expected to… fall in love. But that is exactly what happened. Paris and I reconnected, and… really helped each other. You mean the world to me. And I love you.

Paris: I love you, too. And I can’t wait to be married.

Thomas: Me either. And that being said, Grandpa, you and Grandma made this house exactly what it is, which is a wonderful home. A home of love and family. And that’s what this place represents. Well, Paris and I, we’ve been through problems and issues in the past, but I think we helped each other get through those things and move past that point. Considering how well you have welcomed her into this family, I think it would be wonderful, with your blessing, to potentially get married here, if you are okay with that.

Paris: Yeah, that would be wonderful.

Thomas: So, Granddad, could we get married in your home?

Thomas: Well, um… I guess we’re about to have another wedding. To Thomas and Paris.

Ridge: Thomas and Paris. You guys, that’s gonna be great.

Eric: All right… isn’t that just beautiful?

Ridge: Dad.

Eric: The two of them. It’s gonna be nice. Well done. Well done. Well done.

Eric: Well, let’s– we should celebrate, shouldn’t we? [loud pop]

Transcript provided by Jim

Hope: You were a really good friend to him, Dad. So just try to focus on that and not all the rest, okay? I love you, too. Okay, bye.

Thomas: Is everything okay?

Hope: Uh, not exactly. Um, the man who officiated my father’s wedding to Sheila died yesterday at Il Giardino, so my dad is pretty shook up about it.

Thomas: Uh, what happened?

Hope: Apparently a drug overdose.

Bill: This guy looks vaguely familiar.

Poppy: Who?

Bill: Says his name is, uh, Tom Starr.

Poppy: Tom? Uh, what happened to him?

Bill: Uh, he died at the restaurant last night. You were incredible earlier.

Poppy: Well, you are always incredible. [ Bill chuckles ] You really have changed my life and my– our daughter’s life.

Bill: I’m still trying to wrap my head around it myself.

Poppy: So, do I have you to myself a little bit longer?

Bill: Hmm. Actually, I’m heading over to Forrester Creations.

Poppy: Hmm. Meeting?

Bill: I want to talk to Katie. ♪♪

Katie: Well, I hear congratulations are in order.

Paris: Ah, good news travels fast.

Katie: Wow. Oh, my gosh.

Paris: Yeah, that’s exactly what I said when Thomas slipped it on my finger, asked me to be his wife.

Katie: Yeah, I gotta admit, it’s, um, a bit of a shock, you being engaged to Thomas.

Thomas: This may not be the best time, given what happened, but, um, do you mind if we talk?

Hope: Okay.

Thomas: First, I wanna say, um, I– I didn’t appreciate how Steffy spoke to you the other day, if that wasn’t clear. And she owes you an apology. I don’t expect you’re gonna get one. But… [ both chuckle ]

Hope: Um, well, thank you for your concern. Um, I’m not too worried about Steffy. I’ve been dealing with her for a while now. I am more concerned about you, though. Thomas, please just… promise me that you will think long and hard before you rush into this marriage. ♪♪

Poppy: You’re meeting Katie?

Bill: Yeah. We’re Will’s parents. We still have a lot to discuss now that he has a new sister.

Poppy: Of course. But, uh, just don’t be gone too long because I miss you when you’re gone.

Bill: Hmm. I have to grab something from the den before I go.

Poppy: Katie.

Paris: You’re wondering if I’m bothered by how fast Thomas proposed.

Katie: Well, clearly, you’re not or else you wouldn’t have said yes, right?

Paris: Absolutely. You know, I learned the hard way what it’s like committing to someone who isn’t fully committed to you. I know I’m not gonna go down that road again. And I was completely upfront with Thomas about that.

Katie: Was he as upfront with you about Hope, how she was everything to him until she wasn’t and then you were? I’m sure there’s no one that’s more shocked about this than Hope.

Hope: Despite everything Steffy said, I still do love you.

Thomas: I love you, too. But…

Hope: But…

Thomas: I…

Hope: Paris has stolen your heart. You can’t imagine a life without her. And that’s why you’re rushing into this marriage.

Thomas: Hope…

Hope: Is anything I said true? Because if it isn’t, then it doesn’t make sense to me why you were just running toward the altar. I mean, what is the real reason, Thomas? Are you running toward Paris or are you running away from me? ♪♪

Paris: I heard through Thomas that what you assumed is true. Hope was very thrown to learn about the engagement.

Katie: He told you that?

Paris: Honesty has been the cornerstone of my relationship with Thomas since day one. He’s been very open and honest with me about Hope, everything she was to him.

Katie: You really think that he doesn’t still have feelings for her?

Paris: Yes. Though it doesn’t sound like Hope’s too convinced.

Hope: In no way am I saying that I think I am the only woman that you can ever love. If we aren’t meant to be, then– then I understand that that is inevitable. And Paris, she is a– a wonderful, kind, beautiful woman.

Thomas: But?

Hope: I mean, let’s be real here, Thomas. It just– it feels like you’re trying to copy paste Paris into your life instead of me when we both know you were planning a future for the two of us. You envisioned what it would be like for– for you and me and Douglas, our son. And I know that you wanted that. I know that’s what…

Thomas: Yes, I did. But you didn’t. And that’s why you turned me down over and over again.

Hope: Because I wasn’t ready. That didn’t mean that I wanted our relationship to end, Thomas, because I still love… God– God, I still love you. Thomas, and deep down, I believe that you– you still love me, too. ♪♪

Tom: Lady, there’s a sad little lady. [ cheers and applause ]

Poppy: Yay!

Tom: Last night was amazing.

Poppy: You were amazing, Tom Starr, on stage… and off stage, too.

Tom: Poppy, you’re my inspiration. When I see your face in the crowd, under the moonlight, wow, I never forget a face, especially one as beautiful as yours.

Poppy: What we’ve been sharing, I’ll never forget. I’ll carry a piece of you inside me forever. I’m so sorry, Tom. I’m so sorry. [ sobbing ] ♪♪ [ keys clacking ]

Bill: Do you ever slow down?

Katie: [ scoffs ] That’s rich coming from you, who’s always juggling a million things.

Bill: No, no, no, no. You see, that was the old Dollar Bill. The new Dollar Bill has it on chill. I am– I am stopping to smell the roses.

Katie: No. No, I’m not buying it.

Bill: Okay, fine. I’m not on chill. I’m on full blast. But– but I am stopping to smell the roses now that I suddenly have this new daughter.

Katie: Yeah. Life is just full of surprises. How’s it going, by the way? You know, Luna, your new family with, um, um…

Bill: Poppy?

Katie: Poppy. That’s the one.

Bill: Mmm. Mm-hmm.

Katie: Is it everything you thought it would be? Is Poppy everything that you remember her to be?

Bill: What exactly are you asking me, Katie?

Katie: I’m just curious as to how it feels, spend your days and your nights with someone who kept this huge, inconsequential secret from you for all these years. ♪♪

Bill: Well, as if I didn’t already know, you don’t mince words, do you?

Katie: You don’t have to answer if you feel like I’m overstepping.

Bill: You could never overstep, Katie. You mean way too much to me to ever do that. We have so much history. And truthfully, you are one of the only people in my life that I completely trust.

Katie: Well, that’s because I’m always honest with you, and I don’t let you get away with anything.

Bill: No, ain’t that the truth. [ both chuckle ]

Katie: You were my first true love, the man of my dreams. I grew up with you. And we had a wonderful life. And we have a wonderful son. And I thank God for him every day.

Bill: So do I. He is the best of both of us.

Katie: Mm-hmm. He is. Just like Luna is the best of you and Poppy?

Bill: How well do you even know Luna? I mean, she works here, so obviously you interact with her to some degree.

Katie: Yeah, quite a bit, actually. I think she’s wonderful. She’s smart, she’s creative. She’s driven and ambitious. I– I– I don’t know where she gets that from.

Bill: Ah, must be her mother.

Katie: It must be. I actually see a lot of you in her, as a matter of fact. Just like I see a lot of you in Will.

Bill: You know, I– I really want the two of them to meet. I’d like to do it sooner rather than later.

Bill: If you’re okay with that.

Katie: Yeah, absolutely. Of course. Yes.

Bill: I’ll talk to Luna. I– I know she’ll be up for it.

Katie: What about Poppy?

Bill: What about Poppy?

Katie: Well, it’s just that this has happened so fast. You’ve moved her into your house. I mean, I– I know that that she’s Luna’s mother, and you want your daughter to be close to you.

Bill: What are you saying, Katie? You think I should have excluded Poppy?

Katie: This is just– it’s all happening so fast.

Bill: I suppose. And I am painfully aware of how fleeting life is, how precious it is, and– and how much time I missed out on with Luna and Poppy. And truthfully, uh, I’ve been alone for quite a while now. It’s not what I wanted. What I wanted is you… is my Katie. [ Katie sighs ] ♪♪

Thomas: I’m not sure why you’re bringing up all our feelings from back then.

Hope: Back then? Thomas, it wasn’t that long ago.

Thomas: A lot has happened since.

Hope: Yeah, exactly. That’s why I’m worried about you. Your life is changing so rapidly. It’s like you practically ran from me to Paris.

Thomas: That’s not what happened. You know it.

Hope: Oh, really? I think you were running from your feelings. I think you wanted to put me and what we shared behind you in the past so fast because you just didn’t want to deal with it.

Thomas: You didn’t want to marry me, so I had to move on, Hope. And I found Paris, and we were there for each other.

Hope: Well, I am so happy that you found that kind of support. But is that really a reason to rush into a marriage? Thomas, I haven’t forgotten what it was like between us. Have you? I mean, the passion, the connection.

Thomas: Hope… you have to stop this. You made it clear. We aren’t going anywhere. It’s over. [ Hope sobbing ] [ door closes ]

Paris: Do I have to remind you that Thomas is my fiance? You’re out of line, Hope. ♪♪

Katie: Why are you– you– you talking like that, Bill? I mean, Poppy is living in your house. You– you moved her in. You clearly have feelings for her.

Bill: Sure, I do. She’s given me a daughter.

Katie: And she’s also in love with you. Which is– which is really hard for me.

Bill: What– what are you saying, Katie?

Katie: I– I just– I feel like an interloper in– in my own home. I– I feel like I– I go over there, and I’m– I’m not allowed to be there in this place, this home where we– we built a family. That was our house, you and me and Will, and… I have so many amazing memories of that place with us.

Bill: So do I. I always will.

Katie: Yeah.

Bill: Katie, what– what is this? What is really going on?

Katie: It’s just, I guess, I– I haven’t wanted to admit to myself how… how difficult this is for me, this situation with Luna and Poppy. I’m sorry. And I also, I just– I just– I don’t– I don’t trust Poppy.

Bill: What do you mean? In what way?

Katie: I don’t know. There’s just– there’s just something about her that I can’t put my finger on. But whatever it is, please be careful. ♪♪

Poppy: For the last time, she is not your daughter. The paternity test proved it.

Tom: I’ve kept my distance. But it’s time for Luna to know the truth.

Hope: Let me explain.

Paris: Explain what? How you could do something like that to someone who you used to consider a friend? We used to be close, Hope. I was a valuable part of Hope for the Future.

Hope: I haven’t forgotten.

Paris: Then how can you stab me in the back like you just did? Thomas put this ring on my finger. We’re engaged.

Hope: I know.

Paris: And yet you refuse to accept it.

Hope: Thomas and I, we were in love. And you should know that I still love him. And I believe that he still loves me, too.

Paris: Oh, sure. He’ll always care about you, but he’s moved on. And he’s not going back. Look, Hope, you had your chance, and you rejected him time after time, repeatedly. Thomas has too much self-respect to let you do that to him again. He’s with me now. And I love him. And we’re going to be married. So don’t you ever make a play for Thomas again.

Tom: I want to see Luna.

Poppy: No, impossible.

Tom: Poppy, she deserves to know who her real dad is.

Poppy: She’s not your daughter, Tom. You need to stop this and stop being delusional. Stay out of my daughter’s life.

Tom: Our daughter, Poppy. She’s our daughter. ♪

Hollis: Boss.

Deacon: Thanks. No, Tom was fine before he went on last night. I mean, there was no indication that he was gonna collapse like that.

Hollis: Yeah, and right on stage.

Deacon: He started getting wobbly. Poor guy.

Finn: Hey, Deacon.

Deacon: Hey, uh, yeah, I got some bad news–

Finn: I uh, I heard at the hospital.

Deacon: Yes.

Finn: Can’t believe Tom died here last night.

Deacon: It’s crazy, right? I haven’t heard anything since I left the hospital. He was such a sweet guy. You know, he helped us find Sheila, he married us. Anyway, thank you for coming. I just– I need to know why he went down like that. I mean, what happened? ♪

Bill: Poppy?

Poppy: Bill. Ah… I thought you were at work.

Bill: Not yet. What’s going on? Something wrong? [theme music playing]

Luna: Hi.

Zende: Luna, uh– Sorry, I didn’t see you. I can come back later.

Luna: No, no, it’s fine. You can stay.

Zende: I don’t wanna bother you.

Luna: No, I’m fine.

Zende: I, uh– I can see that. You seem… pretty chill, at ease.

Luna: Yeah, a lot’s changed recently.

Zende: I’ve heard, you, um, found out who your dad is.

Luna: [chuckles]

Deacon: He was such a good guy. You know, he– he had a– a really kind heart.

Hollis: Yeah, and he was picking up his music again.

Deacon: Yeah. I mean, this was gonna be a new start for him. And now the guy’s dead. I mean, he seemed fine before he went on. I mean, even when he started playing.

Hollis: Yeah, and then he got all shaky and unsteady.

Deacon: You think it was like a, I don’t know, a stroke or an aneurysm or something?

Finn: No, it, um– It wasn’t either one of those.

Deacon: You know something.

Finn: Yeah, um– Look, I’m really sorry, and I know you were working with him to try and help him turn his life around, but… Tom died of a drug overdose. ♪

Bill: You’ve been crying?

Poppy: What do I have to cry about?

Bill: Nothing that I know of, but… looks like you’ve been upset to me.

Poppy: Well, I’m just– It’s nothing for you to worry about. Oh, just a little emotional.

Bill: About what? You can talk to me. Poppy… If there’s something upsetting you, I want to hear about it. There’s nothing you can’t tell me.

Poppy: [sniffles] ♪ ♪

Zende: It must feel like a movie or something.

Luna: Yeah, it’s pretty surreal.

Zende: It’s like finding out you’re really a princess.

Luna: Well, no, I have never thought about it that way, but, yeah, I guess you’re right. I mean, I’m not a princess, but I am a Spencer. And all of this is very new to me. Not just the money and the opportunities, which is very impressive and honestly, a little bit overwhelming. But the most-mind blowing part of it all is that I’m part of this big family. Like, I have brothers and nieces.

Zende: Yeah, big families are awesome.

Luna: Yeah. And, you know, it’s always just been my mom and me and this question that’s been looming over me my entire life.

Zende: Poppy finally told you what you always wanted to know.

Luna: Yeah. Well, she told Bill first, but he was overjoyed. And we were all together when Aunt Li did the paternity test.

Zende: Wow. Talk about a big moment.

Luna: Yeah, I’m never gonna forget it.

Zende: So it’s official. You are Bill Spencer’s daughter.

Luna: It’s like my life’s biggest mystery has finally been solved.

Zende: Worth the wait?

Luna: Definitely. And, you know, this is just the beginning, because now Bill, my dad and I can finally get to know each other and form this relationship. Something that I never thought that I’d have. You know, my mom never wanted to discuss it, and she’d put it off anytime I brought it up for years. Yeah, it’s crazy. My whole life, it felt like my dad was dead. But turns out he’s very much alive. [chuckles] ♪

Deacon: Drug overdose? It just doesn’t make sense.

Hollis: Could there be some kind of mistake?

Finn: I, well, the– full toxicology report is still in progress, but his, um, his presentation was textbook. I’m– I’m– really sorry to you guys.

Hollis: Yeah, me too. I mean, we were really becoming friends. You know, if I had just known, I would have tried to help him.

Deacon: We all would’ve.

Finn: He, um– He was a great guy.

Deacon: I mean, he was always positive, upbeat, soulful.

Hollis: And talented. I mean, he used to play music festivals back in the day.

Deacon: Yeah, and nobody was ever a stranger to Tom. He never forgot a face.

Finn: Yeah. Oh, it’s awful. I mean, he was a guy with, you know, friends and people who care about him. And he has so much to live for. And then, you know, drugs took that all away.

Deacon: He wasn’t using. I mean, not anymore.

Finn: Hey, was there something in his past? Like, did you know, did he have a history of drug abuse?

Deacon: Tom was in recovery. I mean, he was trying to put his life back together. I just– I don’t understand why he would go back to that.

Bill: All right. Thank you. [hangs up phone] Now, let me know what it is, and I’ll fix it.

Poppy: No, it’s not like that.

Bill: You’d be surprised what I could fix. There are those who might describe me as being somewhat tenacious.

Poppy: And understanding, caring, generous. It’s a lot.

Bill: What? Me?

Poppy: Well, all of it. The paternity tests, this new life… Waking up next to you every morning, being here with you and knowing you are Luna’s father

Bill: That’s what’s got you upset?

Poppy: I’m just overwhelmed. It’s so far from anything I could’ve imagined. And every fear I had about the future, what learning about her father could do to Luna, our relationship. I don’t know. I guess it sounds crazy, but it’s like– The life I’ve known has died.

Bill: For the better.

Poppy: Yeah. Much better. I’m so grateful to you, Bill. I can’t ever thank you enough. So, um, do you have to rush to the office right away?

Bill: [chuckles] I might be able to spare a few minutes.

Poppy: Good. I was hoping you’d say that, Because I’d like to show you what life with you… …really means to me.

Bill: Mm. ♪

Luna: I almost gave up because no matter how many times I asked my mom, she would never tell me anything about my dad.

Zende: Even after she hooked up with Bill again, she still kept it to herself.

Luna: I’m sure she had her reasons, but you know what? It doesn’t matter because I know now. I know who my father is, and he wants to get to know me.

Zende: Of course he does. You’re an amazing person, Luna.

Luna: Well, it didn’t have to go that way. He could have been angry or suspicious to have another kid just show up out of the blue. He didn’t have to accept me, but he did. Like, immediately. There was this connection between us right off the bat. Like, this was way before my mom even knew. And back when Bill was just my mom’s boyfriend, he, like, offered to be a father figure to me if I ever needed one. And after we did the DNA test, it feels like everything just made sense. You know, like– This– bond of love formed right at that moment, like we were instantly father and daughter.

Zende: Family is very important to him.

Luna: And he wants me to be a part of it, officially. He wants to give me his last name. He wants to adopt me.

Zende: Wow. You weren’t kidding. He’s all in.

Luna: Yeah, it’s pretty wild.

Zende: That’s great. I’m glad that you’re getting everything you deserve. I mean, you’ve waited a long time for this, and you’re finally gonna have your dad in your life. ♪

Finn: Relapses happen.

Deacon: Yeah, believe me, I know, but that can’t be what it was. I mean, look, Tom was very upfront about his history of drug abuse, but he swore that he kicked out of it.

Finn: It’s terrible. And look, I get not wanting to believe what happened.

Deacon: Finn, you knew him. I mean, this isn’t the guy that married me and Sheila. The guy that you saw working around here.

Finn: No. No, it doesn’t seem like him. But that’s what makes addiction so awful and hard. I mean, Deacon, it’s a lifelong battle.

Hollis: Yeah, but, I mean, he never even seemed high. Not even a hint. The guy was sharp.

Deacon: I expect that of all my employees.

Finn: Unfortunately, addicts can function for a long time. Until they can’t. Until drugs become more important than anything else.

Deacon: Yeah, okay, I get that, but, I mean, Tom was focused on his work and on his music and– performing again, it was like a chance for him to start his life again where it went off track. But do it right this time. I mean, this is a guy that was looking forward, was making plans. He– he wanted to do something different. He said that he was reclaiming his life. It just doesn’t make sense that he would start using again. ♪

Bill: Mmm. That’s the kind of thank you I like.

Poppy: Mm, now I feel like I owe you another.

Bill: Really?

Poppy: Mm-hm.

Bill: On that case, I’m gonna have to call the office, cancel my meetings, and let them know I have something more important to attend to. [alarm beeping]

Poppy: Looks like I’m not the only one who wants you right now.

Bill: Yeah, well, we can just ignore that.

Poppy: Well–

Bill: Mm… What?

Poppy: It could be one of your kids or– Some big mergers that I can’t let you close.

Bill: Seriously?

Poppy: It’s your kids.

Bill: Oh, fine.

Poppy: What is it?

Bill: Hmm. Uh, news alert. This guy looks vaguely familiar.

Poppy: Who?

Bill: Says his name is, uh, Tom Starr.

Poppy: Tom?

Bill: Oh, wait a minute. That’s– it’s the– the bus boy who– who spilled the water all over us.

Poppy: Uh, what happened to him?

Bill: Uh, he… died at the restaurant last night.

Poppy: Died?

Bill: Yeah, it says something about a live– Oh, I guess he was a busboy slash musician, and he was performing during this new live music night, and he collapsed on stage.

Poppy: Does it say why? What happened to him?

Bill: Drug overdose. Wow, that’s a shame. He died right on stage last night.

Poppy: Oh, my God, that’s so horrible. ♪

Deacon: Yeah, I’m not gonna make any assumptions about Tom till the final tox screening comes out.

Finn: Look, I– I get that, Deacon, but the– but the prelim says it all, okay? And, look, the news outlets have already picked it up. I mean, you’re gonna have a full day of fielding calls and dealing with news vans.

Deacon: I don’t care about any of that. Tom deserved better than this. He was making a comeback. Yeah– People don’t just throw away second chances. Look, at your mom?

Finn: Let’s not go there.

Deacon: Seriously? We can’t even talk about her now?

Finn: I just came by to talk to you about Tom. I didn’t make this a habit. I don’t want to risk running into Sheila. I have to honor my wife’s wishes, keep my distance. Steffy and the kids will always come first with me.

Deacon: Well, then I guess I’m thankful that you came by, even if I don’t like the news.

Finn: But drug addiction, it affects all kinds of people, all right? At every stage of life. It’s heartbreaking, and it’s just the way that it robs people of their potential and ruins careers and families. Did he– did he have one?

Hollis: A family?

Finn: Did he ever mention that he was close with someone? Did he have kids?

Deacon: Not that I’m aware of.

Luna: This is not where I thought I’d be a few months ago. It’s been a roller coaster, but I’m thrilled to finally know my father.

Bill: Seems like you hear about this kind of thing every day. I feel so blessed that my family hasn’t been touched by it. There’s so many families out there that aren’t that lucky, I mean– Look at this poor guy. He’s gone.

Poppy: It’s so tragic.

Bill: Life can be so fleeting. I’m so grateful to have you and Luna in my life now. You’ve given me this incredible daughter. A strong, resilient young woman, just like her mom.

Poppy: We struggled for so many years holding our life together. A single mother, barely making ends meet. But I did my best to raise Luna in an environment where it was safe and encouraged her to dream. And it’s all come true now, thanks to you.

Bill: You don’t have to worry about any of that stuff anymore. You have my word. I will always take care of you and Luna.

Poppy: I can’t tell you what that means to me, Bill. Your love and support have changed my life. But more than anything, I’m thrilled that Luna finally knows your father. You’ve done a fantastic job with her, and now she can depend on me, too.

Poppy: Thank you, Bill. That just makes it all worthwhile.

Steffy: You have made the best decision for you and for Douglas.

Hope: By breaking up with me? That was best for our son?

Thomas didn’t turn you down. You rejected him.

Hope: Because marriage is a big step. One that people shouldn’t take lightly.

Steffy: Thomas knows exactly what he is doing. He is engaged to a wonderful woman. A woman who Douglas adores. I am so thrilled for you. You deserve this. You found a woman who truly loves you. So go with Paris. Step into the future and leave Hope in the past where she belongs. ♪♪


RJ: Can we do more of that?

Can we, please? It feels like I haven’t seen you in forever.

RJ: It’s for good reason. You’d be getting acquainted with your dad.

Yeah, one of your least favorite people.

You’re so sweet, RJ. You wanna know what else is sweet? Like, off-the-charts sweet? My dad wants to adopt me. [chuckles] [rock music playing]

Deacon: Right?

Hollis: Boss, we’re all set. Just waiting on Tom.

Deacon: Uh, he wanted to get in the zone, so I sent him up to my apartment. Our apartment. He’ll be down in a few minutes.

Sheila: This is exciting. Come on, you gotta admit, this is exciting.

Deacon: This crowd has no idea what they’re in for.

Hollis: It’s gonna be great.

Deacon: Big night.

Poppy: I didn’t appreciate your little stunt earlier, showing up at Bill’s uninvited.

Tom: Well, I just wanted you o come to the show. I thought maybe you’d bring our daughter along.

Poppy: She’s not your daughter, Tom.

Tom: Oh, come on, Poppy.

Poppy: No! You need to stop harassing me and leave Luna and me alone.

Tom: I just want her to get to know me. She doesn’t even know who a real dad is.

Poppy: Oh, yes, she does. And he is a kind and wonderful man.

Tom: You only wish it was Bill Spencer, but it’s not. It’s me. I’m Luna’s dad. ♪♪ [upbeat music playing] ♪♪

RJ: Wow, that’s awesome. That’s exciting. I’m excited for you.

Luna: I know, thank you.

RJ: It’s adoption. That’s a big step.

Luna: Right? I went from wondering my entire life who my father is to finding out that it’s Bill Spencer. And now he wants to legally make me his daughter. I mean, this– It’s everything to me.

RJ: Yeah, it’s a full circle moment.

And I can tell it means a lot to my mom, too.

Tom: I want to see Luna.

Poppy: No, impossible.

Tom: Poppy, she deserves to know who her real dad is.

Poppy: [groans] She’s not your daughter, Tom. You need to stop this and stop being delusional. Stay out of my daughter’s life.

Tom: Our daughter, Poppy. She’s our daughter,

Poppy: [sighs]

Hope: You have some nerve interfering yet again.

Steffy: I’m only speaking the truth, Hope.

Hope: Oh, by telling him to leave me in the past?

Thomas: Can we not?

Hope: I am the mother of his child, Steffy, and I will not be dismissed or belittled by you.

Steffy: Hope, if you truly loved him, if you wanted a future with Thomas, then you would be the woman wearing his engagement ring. ♪♪ You said your piece, and I appreciate your concern, but I don’t want you to be so rough on Hope.

Steffy: I’m looking out for you, Thomas.

Thomas: I appreciate that, but I can handle my own life, all right? This engagement to Paris has got to have caught everyone by surprise, and that includes Hope. So maybe give her some time to process it, and I think that– that she’ll realize that in the end, it was a good thing for everyone. Now I need to go pick up Douglas, so… could you stop arguing? I hate it when you fight. [door closes]

Hope: I wish I could agree with Thomas. I wish we could get along… but I am tired of your disrespect, Steffy, and I will not let you mess with my life any longer. ♪♪

Luna: This is just so surreal.

RJ: Mm?

Luna: Like, my mom and I, we– we struggled. Well, we were happy. And, yes, we did have a great life, but… you know, there was always, like, this… this void.

RJ: Not anymore.

Luna: [chuckles] And, you know, now that my mom and dad are back together and we’re living at the Spencer estate, I don’t think I’ve ever seen my mom smile this much in my entire life.

RJ: So I wanted to ask you about that. See, that’s what I don’t understand, is… If Poppy’s had such strong feelings for Bill, then why didn’t she reveal to you sooner that Bill might be your dad?

Luna: I mean, if you knew my mom like I do, it’s not that surprising. You know, my mom can be a little bit mysterious sometimes. [cellphone chiming] Oh, shoot, I forgot I have an appointment. I have to go.

RJ: Okay, bye.

Luna: Okay, bye. ♪♪ [upbeat music playing]

Hollis: Or cash.

Jack: Thank you.

Hollis: Thank you. [crowd chattering]

Jack: Don’t remember you being one for live music, Li.

Li: You think you know me so well, Jack.

Jack: Am I wrong? You ducked out of the hospital early to, uh, get your game on, did you?

Li: [groans] Fine. I’m here to pick up. Didn’t know all this was going on.

Jack: Join me for a drink while you wait. Hollis?

Hollis: Yeah?

Jack: Another one for the lady, please.

Hollis: You got it. [crowd chattering]

Poppy: I never want to see you again.

Tom: This is my life, Poppy. My daughter. You’ve been trying to keep me away for so long, trying to land a rich man. It’s just not fair. Luna needs to know who her real dad is.

Poppy: She does know her real dad. Bill Spencer.

Tom: Now, that’s a lie. You trapped that poor sucker. And worse, you’re lying to our daughter.

Poppy: For the last time, she is not your daughter. The paternity test proved it.

Tom: Bull, Poppy. Listen, I’ve kept my distance, but it’s time for Luna to know the truth. ♪♪

Jack: A toast to our son Finn.

Li: [chuckles] I’ll drink to that. [clink] [rock music playing]

Jack: Are you… looking to pick up food, or are you looking to pick up someone?

Li: What?

Jack: You’re looking for someone.

Li: [groans] [rock music playing]

Sheila: This is a rare sighting at Il Giardino these days. What are you doing, Li?

Li: [scoffs]

Justin: Sheila.

Sheila: Justin Barber, uh– Thanks for filling up, huh?

Justin: Yeah, best food in town. Now live music I wouldn’t listen for the world. [chuckles]

Poppy: You have to stop stalking and tormenting my daughter and me.

Tom: I just want to talk to our daughter.

Poppy: Tom, for the last time–

Tom: She’s mine, Poppy. I can tell. We spent a lot of nights together. Remember San Francisco?

Poppy: We didn’t spend that particular evening together, Tom, because you were passed out on the tour bus. I spent the evening with Bill Spencer.

Tom: Of course you say it’s Bill Spencer. He’s got more money than you can shake a stick at.

Poppy: That is not why. We ran a paternity test. And my sister, the doctor, administered the test herself, and it was proven without a shadow of a doubt that Bill is the one. Bill and I are Luna’s parents.

Tom: Well, why didn’t you figure it out sooner? Listen, I tried reaching out to you, but you shut me down. Why?

Poppy: You were in a band, and you were caught up in that lifestyle. The booze, the drugs, the women, the partying. And I wanted to protect Luna from all of that. But you kept on harassing me, calling me, and sending me those letters.

Tom: Letters that always got returned.

Poppy: Because they didn’t mean anything. You’re just a fling from my past, Tom. Now leave us alone.

Tom: You know you can’t keep me from Luna. I got a show to do. But after, I’m gonna track Luna down and tell her that her dad ain’t Bill Spencer. You can do the right thing. Come clean with Luna, or I’ll do it. Either way, she’s gonna know that I’m dad. Now it’s showtime. I gotta hit the can, and you gotta go. ♪♪ [door closes]

Hope: Oh, God, I am so tired of defending myself to you, Steffy. I owe you no explanation.

Steffy: No, but you owe it to Thomas to step back and let him enjoy this magical moment.

Hope: So you really have no worries about this engagement at all?

Steffy: I trust my brother knows what he wants.

Hope: You don’t trust Thomas at all. If you did trust Thomas, you would let him make up his own mind. You wouldn’t interfere and get in his head and take my son to Europe.

Steffy: The best thing he could’ve done was to get as far away from you. ♪♪

Hollis: Say, boss, any ETA? I mean, maybe it’s time to go check on Tom.

Deacon: Hey, there he is. There he is. Hey, uh, do you need anything?

Tom: Oh, no, no. I’m all set up. I got my, uh– Oh, boy. My sports drink. I need my hydration.

Hope: How much do you really believe in Thomas’s new relationship?

Steffy: What do you mean? I don’t think it’s fake.

Hope: So do you really support Paris and him, or do you just support him being with anyone but me?

Steffy: Paris wants to marry Thomas. You don’t.

Hope: Okay. So you don’t actually care about their relationship at all. You just care about pushing your brother toward any woman who isn’t me.

Ridge: Thomas, if this is a rebound, if you still have feelings for hope…

Thomas: Yes. I still have feelings for Hope. I’m always gonna love her. But…[sighs] will she commit to me for the rest of her life? No. Right? I mean, two failed proposal attempts speak to that.

Ridge: So, you’re moving on with a woman who will commit.

Thomas: Not just will commit. Who was thrilled to say “yes” when I pulled out that ring.

Luna: Look, I understand you not wanting to tell me if my dad was like some criminal or, I don’t know, somebody you’d wanna protect me from. But Bill–I mean, Bill’s a successful businessman. You know, he’s somebody that you’d want me to emulate. He could’ve been my role model, but…you decided to keep quiet instead. And, look, I know that you said that you were trying to protect me in your heart, but… I can’t help but wonder if something else is going on. Is there more to this? Is there something else going on that made you not wanna tell me that Bill could be my father? [guitar plucking]

Sheila: Hey. So, you excited for tonight?

Tom: Oh, very. Pretty cool Deacon hatched this idea.

Sheila: Well, that’s my husband for you, though. He’s the ultimate promoter. I’m hoping we get a good crowd here tonight. And I’m thinking maybe some of your old fans show up. What do you think?

Tom: How cool would that be. I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing a face or two popping in from the past.

Deacon: I just realized that maybe I should hire extra security. I mean, if the rumors are right about you being such a ladies man during your rock star years, I don’t know. We could have women rushing the stage.

Tom: Oh, no, no. It was a long time ago that I could cause any sort of stampede. You know, I was sort of a Casanova. Oh, yeah. Back in the day.

Deacon: Well, look, you got yourself a venue, so don’t go hanging up your Romeo hat yet, all right? You just do your thing, strum that guitar. You’re gonna have women begging for your attention. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get lucky tonight.

Sheila: Might.

Deacon: Maybe I’ll get lucky. [Sheila chuckles]

Poppy: I thought I was doing the right thing raising you on my own, but… I was depriving you.

Luna: Hey, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have put you on the spot like that, because… You know, it’s true. It doesn’t matter anymore. It’s in the past. And all that matters is that I know Bill’s my dad, and Aunt Li’s test proved that.

Bill: Mm. And I’m thankful that it did.

Poppy: It really does mean the world to me to see my gorgeous daughter so happy and reunited with her father.

Thomas: Look, Hope’s rejection, it–it hurt. And I didn’t know how or when I would be able to move past it. It turns out going to International was exactly what I needed. It gave me some space and some time to reflect, but it also gave me the stability to cross paths with Paris who was a unexpected and very welcome surprise.

Ridge: Speaking of surprises, how’s Hope? Was she surprised?

Thomas: She was pretty thrown. Upset. Which, I guess, is to be expected, considering that I am engaged to another woman.

Steffy: Give me a break. You’re not looking out for Thomas. You’re doing what you always do best–playing the Logan card.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. Steffy–

Steffy: And playing it well, I might add. But, of course, it’s just like your mother. But it’s not gonna work this time. I won’t let it. I won’t let you get into my brother’s head.

Thomas: Yeah, maybe I should have told Hope earlier. But I didn’t want this to be something that I told her over the phone. I wanted to say it in person.

Ridge: No, you’re right. That makes sense.

Thomas: Yeah. Except, um… When Douglas and I got here and saw Hope and Douglas ran into her arms, um, Hope thought that I was back to give our relationship another try.

Ridge: But you’re not here for that. Right? You’re not gonna give it one more try with Hope, are you?

Hope: I don’t know why you think I’m messing with Thomas.

Steffy: Seriously?

Hope: Anyone who cares about Thomas should be concerned right now. We all know how deeply your brother felt about me, how he proposed to me. And now all of a sudden, he shows up engaged to someone else? I am sorry, Steffy, but this relationship with Paris, it is– it is happening way too fast.

Tom: Deacon.

Deacon: Yeah.

Tom: I think I gotta start getting ready for the show.

Deacon: Okay.

Tom: You know, get quiet, get in the zone.

Deacon: Yeah. Okay. We’ll leave you be.

Tom: Hey, Deacon. Thanks. I hope I don’t disappoint.

Deacon: Impossible.

Tom: Seriously, though, you have no idea what this means to me.

Poppy: It’s hard to believe now how afraid I was of your rejection, that you would shun me, turn your back on our daughter. Most men would have. But not you. You welcomed us into your life, your home. You’ve literally changed our lives.

Bill: Well, you know what? Uh, I would like to change them even more. Talk’s cheap. I’m a man of action. I wanna do more than welcome you into my home. I wanna welcome you into my family. Now, I know the two of you have this, uh, intense bond. You talk about your “Nozawa power,” and I respect that. I don’t wanna interfere in it. But I think you could maintain your connection even if you took on another name. Even if you became a Spencer. Now, I know that I’m not on Luna’s birth certificate. But I’d like to fix that. I would like to adopt Luna and make it official.

Luna: What? You–You wanna adopt me?

Poppy: You would really do that?

Bill: Mm-hmm.

Poppy: You would make Luna your daughter, not just biologically but legally, too?

Bill: Well, yes. She already is my daughter. But in the eyes of the law. If you’re both okay with that.

Poppy: Yes. Are you kidding? I couldn’t have imagined a better life or future for my daughter. Or for me. I know it’s been over 20 years since we first connected, but it feels like it happened just 20 minutes ago. And I have never felt more connected or in a love with a man. [Poppy, Bill laughing] Oh, Luna Spencer. I like the sound a lot.

Luna: Yeah, I do, too.

Bill: Who would have thought that a chance encounter at Il Giardino would be so incredibly impactful.

Poppy: You know what? I think that you two should have some time alone. You know, all this talk of adoption and Luna becoming a Spencer, that just feels like a father/daughter bonding moment that I should let you two share. My beautiful girl. This is the life and the happiness that you deserve. And now that you have it, nothing and no one can ever take it from you. [Bill chuckles]

Bill: Let’s go look at your, uh…

Luna: These are my brothers.

Bill: …brothers-to-be here. So great. You…

Luna: I can’t believe you’re talking about making this legal. Making me an actual Spencer?

Bill: And not to pressure you, but the Spencers do fairly well in the world of mass media. So if you ever get tired of making dresses, there’s a place for you here. You are always welcome.

Hollis: Hey, Tom. Can I get you something before the big show? Anything at all?

Tom: Oh, no. No, I’m fine.

Hollis: Yeah?

Tom: Hey, Hollis. I really appreciate you, man. I mean, thank you for taking me under your wing.

Hollis: Oh, come on. Look, it’s just– Tom, I really wanna see you succeed.

Deacon: Hey, we all do. Listen. If you wanna decompress before the show, you’re welcome to go up to my apartment.

Tom: Really?

Deacon: Yeah. You know, it’s got privacy. You can tune your guitar up. Sure.

Tom: Then that’ll be great. Thanks.

Deacon: Absolutely. You know, I’m just– I’m just really proud of you, the way you’ve turned your life around.

Tom: You know, it’s been a journey. I mean, listen. I’ve had my demons. I was living on the streets. But you know what? I’m clean now. I got a job. And I’m proud to be working here at El Giardino.

Deacon: Well, you know what? We’re proud to have you.

Hollis: We sure are.

Tom: And listen. I just want you to know how much I value what’s going on here and the direction my life’s going. And I wanna give it my all up on that stage. I have a new beginning. There’s no more gloom and doom. I’ve got a future. Speaking of the immediate future, I’ll take you up on that apartment offer.

Deacon: Okay.

Tom: I promise I won’t trash it.

Deacon: I believe you.

Hollis: Yeah.

Ridge: Son, I don’t wanna make it sound like I’m against this engagement because I’m not. I like Paris. And if she’s the one for you, then I’m very happy. But you keep saying that you have feelings for Hope, that part of you will always love her. And as a parent, that’s a little concerning.

Thomas: Yeah, I understand that that’s concerning, but… there’s also just truth to it. I’m always going to love Hope, but that doesn’t change the reality of the situation, which is that she is a woman who does not want to commit to me. And I want a commitment. I wanna have a family, you know? I wanna give Douglas a brother or a sister.

Ridge: Wait. Hang on. You’re already talking about that?

Thomas: Yeah, we’re talking about that. And we’re on the same page about that. I’m glad I finally found someone who wants the same things as me. [sighs] I wanna create a life and a family for me and Douglas. And– Speaking of Douglas, I actually need to go find him. So let’s catch up later.

Ridge: Okay.

Steffy: Is the engagement quick? Yeah. Maybe. But it doesn’t mean it isn’t genuine. Just let Thomas be happy. He finally found what he was looking for– a commitment, an engagement. You couldn’t give that to him, so don’t begrudge him finding it with someone else.

Hope: Will you please stop pretending like you care? I–I–I really don’t believe that you genuinely care about Thomas’s happiness, about if he finds love or not or if he gets married or not. As long as it doesn’t involve me, that is what matters to you. That is your priority– making sure that I have no part in your brother’s life. Let’s be real.

Thomas: Is everything okay?

Steffy: Yeah. Everything’s fine. But I think you should come in. You need to hear this.

Thomas: Need to hear what?

Luna: When I used to dream about who my father might be, sometimes I’d picture like a baseball player or a famous actor or a chef. Never did I imagine this. Someone as loving and accepting as you. [laughs]


Tom: Ah, come on in, boss. Huh. What are you doing?

Poppy: I’m putting you on notice, Tom.

Tom: Huh?

Poppy: I wasn’t amused by your little “pizza delivery” earlier. You’re never to come to the Spencer estate again. Do you understand me?

Tom: Why? Suddenly you don’t like free pizza?

Poppy: I have told you before. I want nothing to do with you. Stay away from me. Stay away from my daughter.

Tom: Our daughter. We both know the truth. Luna’s mine. I’m Luna’s father.

Thomas: All right, Steffy, what’s going on?

Steffy: I just want you to know that I am not gonna be putting up with Brooke 2.0.

Hope: Excuse me?

Steffy: You are more and more like your mother every single day, and it’s really painful to see because you were the one Logan I thought who knew the difference between right and wrong.

Hope: I still think I do.

Steffy: That makes your behavior even worse, because even Brooke didn’t know that she was supposedly wreaking havoc.

Thomas: Steffy, come on.

Steffy: No, you need to hear this. Brooke ran through our family and tore it apart, and now Hope is picking up right where she left off. You will not do to Thomas what Brooke did to our father all those years. So, yeah, am I being a little overprotective? Maybe I am, considering his obsession with you in the past. Thomas, you know how much we’ve talked since you moved.

Thomas: Yes, we have.

Steffy: Okay. And in the course of those conversations, the beginning was tough for you. I mean, you were sad. But look at you now. You’re happy. You’re engaged. And, Hope, if you truly cared about Thomas, you would leave him alone. Like I said, he is happy. Do not interfere. Do not ruin things for him, please.

Hope: All I have done is question whether or not this engagement is the right move for you. I don’t understand Steffy’s strong reaction.

Steffy: Okay, just stop. Don’t listen to Hope. You’re engaged to a fantastic woman, a woman who is devoted to you and accepted your proposal. You deserve this. You deserve a stable future with Paris and with Douglas. Like, look at you. You are in such a better place ever since you left for Europe, ever since you’ve been away from Hope. So marry Paris. Just do it. And don’t even think about Hope again.

Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Poppy: Leave Luna and me alone.

Tom: I’m Luna’s dad.

Hope: Oh, God, I still love you, and deep down I believe you still love me, too.

Eric: I guess we’re about to have another wedding.

Steffy: Thomas is engaged to Paris.

Hope: I’m fully aware.

Steffy: It didn’t look that way when I saw you two kissing.

Hope: Oh, you mean on the cheek just now?

Steffy: Right… right. Okay, well, Thomas is moving on with Paris, someone who is fully committed to him, who wants a future with him. So you need to leave Thomas alone and respect his wishes.

Paris: Look, I know this seems out of nowhere, but Thomas and I are really happy.

Ridge: You know what, and I love that, but I’m still trying to process you’re engaged.

Paris: Yeah.

Thomas: Hey, Dad.

Ridge: Hi. Oh, I missed you.

Thomas: Aw, I missed you too.

Ridge: Ahh… so all that… when you said that Paris was good to you, you didn’t mean the city.

Thomas: [laughing] Yeah, sorry, I would have told you sooner, but, uh, I don’t know, it just didn’t feel like the right time.

Ridge: The right time? The right time to tell your dad what’s going on in your life? I don’t– why would you keep this from me?

[birds tweeting]

Luna: You’re not hungry?

Poppy: I’m sorry, what, sweetheart?

Luna: Are you okay, Mom? You’ve been kind of off since the pizza guy showed up. Who was he?

Poppy: Luna.

Luna: No, I know, you told me not to worry about him.

Bill: Hey. What did I miss?

Poppy: Not much.

Bill: Well, I couldn’t help overhearing. Worried about who, Poppy? [bluesy guitar strumming]

Deacon: Hey, Tom, I hope the setup’s okay, I know it’s small, but once we get the place filled, it’ll be good.

Tom: Hey, Deacon, it’s better than an alley.

Deacon: [laughing] Yeah.

Hollis: Hey, I can’t wait to hear you play later.

Tom: It’s the one thing that’s always been natural to me. You know, music? It’s been a big part of my life, all of my life.

Bill: So what’s going on?

Poppy: Nothing. A pizza delivery guy came to the house, and I wasn’t expecting him, but like I told Luna, there’s nothing to worry about.

Bill: Well, what do you mean you weren’t expecting him? Did you order a pizza?

Poppy: No.

Bill: So some guy was able just to walk past security?

Luna: They must have thought that we put in an order.

Bill: That’s not good enough. They have a list of family and friends who can come and go. Some random guy shouldn’t be able just to walk up to our front door. I’m gonna deal with security.

Poppy: I don’t want to make this more than it is.

Bill: You’re not. I’m very protective of my family, and make no mistake, you’re my family.

[guitar strumming] [guitar strumming continues]

Deacon: Man, Tom, I’m blown away, the patrons, they are gonna be in for such a treat.

Tom: The pleasure’s all mine. Listen, I appreciate the opportunity. It’s been a while since I’ve been up on a stage.

Hollis: Oh, cool, so you have performed before.

Tom: Oh yeah, yeah, in bars, in county fairs, and festivals. Music’s in my blood.

Ridge: Listen, I’m not putting you on the spot. You’re an adult, now you can do whatever you want, but I just didn’t know… why you wouldn’t tell me. Things are okay between us, right? I thought you could come to me with anything.

Thomas: And I know that I can, Dad.

Ridge: Well, but you didn’t. You told Steffy, you didn’t tell me, why?

Thomas: Okay, look, I, um… I’ve messed up with relationships in the past. And you’ve been a witness to that, and I– I guess I– I just wanted to be 100% sure about this before I told you. And I am, Dad.

Hope: There are bigger issues here than just Thomas and me. I get that you are looking out for your brother, Steffy, but so am I.

Steffy: Really?

Hope: It doesn’t… it doesn’t worry you that he proposed to me not that long ago and now he shows up out of nowhere engaged to Paris? I mean, come on, Steffy, be honest, I mean, that doesn’t concern you?

We polished it off.

Luna: Wow, I usually don’t really like pizza, but that was really good. Sorry you didn’t have any, Mom.

Bill: Hey, I gotta say, you know, I didn’t think there’s anything that Sharp could get right, but he makes a hell of a pizza. [phone chime] Um, sorry, guys, I just need a couple of minutes, it’s Liam, and it’s about a big acquisition we’re working on. I’ll be right back.

Luna: “Live Music With Tom Starr.” Hey, this is tonight at Il Giardino. We should go, you know, listen to some music, eat more pizza. That would be fun, right?

Hollis: Man, that must have been such a rush, Tom, performing onstage?

Tom: Oh, yeah, most definitely. You know, in the dark ages, before the internet, I had quite the following.

Deacon: Really?

Tom: Oh, yeah. You know what, I went up and down the coast a couple of times, and then I did a little recording, I got some radio play.

Deacon: No kidding.

Hollis: No way. Do we know the song?

Tom: Well, maybe. Maybe not. You’ll have to listen and find out for yourself.

Paris: Well, I can tell you guys have a lot to catch up on, so I’m gonna go catch up with Douglas and get him some food.

Thomas: All right, I’ll call you when I’m heading home.

Paris: Okay.

Thomas: All right. Surprise.

Ridge: Yeah. Surprise. Well… Douglas likes her. They’re sweet together.

Thomas: Oh, yeah, he really does, and she’s great with him. It goes both ways.

Ridge: Yeah. And you, my boy.

Thomas: Hmm?

Ridge: Wow, you guys seem good together, it’s, um… some nice things to say about you.

Thomas: Oh, yeah? Really?

Ridge: Yeah. I like her, I’ve… everyone in the building likes her.

Thomas: Yeah, she’s a great person.

Ridge: She is. And that’s– that’s perfect. You found love, it’s, um…

Thomas: Why do I feel like there’s a “but” coming?

Ridge: But you’re engaged now. I don’t… [sighing] …if you’re happy, I’m happy. But why– why do you need to get married after everything you’ve been through, after everything you went through with Hope?

Thomas: [sighing]

Hope: I am concerned about you trying to get into my brother’s head.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh, can you put your issues with me aside for just one moment and try to be realistic? Your brother proposed to me not that long ago.

Hope: Okay, how many times did you turn him down?

Steffy: And that was because I wasn’t ready to be married again, Steffy, not because I didn’t want to be with him. All I am saying is this feels rushed. Him trying to create this life with Paris so soon after everything, it just– it feels reactionary. Can you honestly say that you don’t agree?

Luna: Come on, Mom, nothing beats live music, let’s go see this Tom Star guy.

Poppy: [sighing]

Bill: Sorry about that.

Luna: Hey, Dad, do you sing?

Bill: Do I sing? Oh, yeah. Like a lark, I have an incredible vocal gift. In fact, every dog in LA howls right along with me when I sing.

Luna: [laughing]

Poppy: This is so nice here, just the three of us at home. I think we should stay here and listen to your father’s very bad singing.

Bill: Eh…

Luna: It’s crazy how effortless us being a family feels.

Bill: The feeling is mutual.

Luna: Hey, Mom? Don’t take this the wrong way, okay, I’m not upset with you at all, I’m just curious. Um… I know you said that you were protecting me in your heart, and that’s why you didn’t tell me that Bill was my father all these years, but… is that really the only reason?

Hollis: So Tom, my guy, you gotta tell me, what was it like being a rock star?

Tom: Oh, no-no-no-no, not a rock star, but it was pretty cool. You know? Stepping onstage, and seeing that audience start to sway back and forth. That’s when you realize you got ’em in the palm of your hand.

Hollis: Mm, man, that must have been great both on and off the stage, if you catch my drift. I got one word for ya, groupies.

Tom: Well, I’d be lying to say the girls weren’t crazy about me. I mean, I know I might not look like it, but it’s true. You know, but that was a long time ago. Another lifetime.

Deacon: Well, maybe you can rekindle a little of that magic when you play later, who knows, get a taste of the past.

Thomas: Okay, I never would have proposed to Paris if I wasn’t ready to commit to her.

Ridge: Why so fast?

Thomas: Feels right.

Ridge: Feels right, but why so fast? Explain that to me, what’s the rush?

Thomas: Okay, look, she’s beautiful, she’s talented, she is an incredible person. She has always gotten along well with Douglas, and… I don’t know, it’s always been that way, I– you may not remember this, but there was a time when we lived together, and even then, there was this spark.

Ridge: Spark?

Thomas: Yes.

Ridge: Spark and “Let’s get married,” those are two different things.

Thomas: I understand that, but… all right, look… when I got to France, I was destroyed. And, yeah, having Douglas, that helped, but it really was Paris that helped me and pulled me out of that, and… I love her, Dad.

Ridge: Do you? She gave you strength. She gave you solace.

Thomas: Yes.

Ridge: But do you love her, or is this just something you need to… shut down your feelings for Hope?

Hope: Be real with me, Steffy, I mean, what do you think of Thomas’s engagement?

Steffy: I think he’s a grown man who can make his own decisions.

Hope: Okay, well, that really wasn’t answering the question. You care about Thomas’s happiness, right? So… so then how can his… falling in love and proposing to Paris so quickly not worry you?

Steffy: I don’t know, I think sometimes you take years to find someone you love, and sometimes it just happens automatically.

Hope: Oh, my gosh, why do I even bother?

Steffy: I have no idea, because I can see right through you. You’re pretending to care about Thomas when you really just care about yourself.

Hope: That is not true.

Steffy: Really? Thomas came here, and he told you he’s engaged, and instead of respecting that, you want Thomas to still be in love with you, and that’s really sad.

[birds tweeting]

Bill: I understand what you’re feeling, Luna, but your mother had her reasons, and, you know, you said it yourself, she was protecting you.

Luna: Yeah, but that’s what doesn’t make sense to me, I mean, why would I need to be protected from you? You’re Bill Spencer. Your whole life is documented online, right, so it’s not like we’re going in blind.

Poppy: Luna, you’re right. I should have opened up sooner, and I– I just feel incredibly guilty.

Luna: No, Mom, I’m not bringing this up to make you feel bad, I’m just trying to understand why you didn’t tell me that this… wonderful man is my father. Is there another reason why you didn’t tell me the truth?

Tom: [sighing]

Thomas: Do you really think that I would use Paris to get over hope?

Ridge: No, I don’t. Not intentionally. But you told me you were hurt. You’re vulnerable, and maybe… having Paris by your side made that thing that happened with Hope hurt a little less. It’s a terrible reason to marry somebody.

Thomas: Yes, and I agree with you, if that was the reason, but that’s not the reason, Dad. I… I finally let go of Hope, and that’s when I saw this beautiful, incredible, wonderful person standing right in front of me. Paris. And I don’t know, maybe it was… being with Hope is what kept my blinders on, letting go of her, and I finally saw Paris.

Ridge: You can see my concern, right?

Thomas: Yes, I do understand your concern, and I appreciate it. Look, I always told Hope I was a one-woman man. But in actuality she couldn’t commit to me the way that I could with her, so I had to respect that and let her go. And… maybe this was just all meant to be. Exactly how it unfolded. Getting hurt is what led me to fly off to Paris, and… maybe I was supposed to be at Forrester International at that right time so that, when I let go, I saw Paris. Right in front of me. This beautiful, wonderful woman. Has this amazing relationship with my son, and… [sighing] …look, Dad… …Paris is the woman that I want to be with. And I’m gonna marry her.

Steffy: You are wild.

Hope: Regardless of how I feel about Thomas… I told him that if it was his decision, I would respect it.

Steffy: But then you kissed Thomas.

Hope: You’re making a big deal out of a kiss on the cheek between two people who loved each other, who share a son, who, by the way, I still care for, Steffy, my feelings for him haven’t changed, although I don’t feel the need to explain that to you.

Steffy: Yeah, typical.

Hope: You know, I’m not the one you should be worried about right now. Dating is one thing, fine. But marriage? A family? I mean, have– have you even thought about how this might impact Douglas? Have you thought about your nephew at all?

Steffy: Of course I thought about that, Hope.

Hope: Oh, so… so you knew about Thomas and Paris this entire time? And you didn’t say anything.

Steffy: It wasn’t my business to tell.

Hope: [gasping] Oh, my gosh, I bet you have just been… been encouraging this, haven’t you? You were just trying to put them together.

Steffy: She makes him happy. Of course I’m gonna defend my brother, he is my brother. So, yeah, I knew Thomas and Paris were together. I did not know that they were engaged. That is news to me.

Hope: Well, I am sure that you are thrilled.

Steffy: I am. He’s finally with someone who truly loves him and appreciates him.

Hope: And you’re sure that woman is Paris.

Steffy: At least she’s not wearing his engagement ring around her neck as a necklace, my God.

Hope: You think I’m delusional? Steffy, you’re the one tricking yourself into believing that sham of a relationship. You only care because you want your brother with anyone but me. And that… is what this is all about. Isn’t it, Steffy?

[ relaxing music ]

Hope: I know you remember how good we were together. How we made each other feel things that we had never felt before or since, and that is what makes it so difficult to understand.

Thomas: What?

Hope: You and Paris. Not that you’re dating, but that you asked her to marry you. I mean, it wasn’t that long ago you were proposing to me.

Thomas: You said no, twice. You have to know what that did to me.

Hope: Yes. And I am sorry that I hurt you, Thomas. I wish I could do things differently. Maybe if I had, you wouldn’t have left me.

Thomas: No. Look, look, I– Hope, I couldn’t stay. For all the reasons you already know. I had to move on.

Hope: Oh, so fast? So soon? To Paris Buckingham? Don’t do it, Thomas. Don’t marry her.

Paris: I realize this is the last thing you guys were expecting to hear.

Ridge: Yeah, probably because I didn’t know that you were dating. Something that his sister kept from me.

Steffy: I wasn’t keeping it from you. I wanted Thomas to tell you himself. And now, everything’s out in the open.

Ridge: It’s out in the open. You’re engaged.

Paris: I’m– I’m sorry. I’m sorry. This is not the way we wanted to break the news. We wanted to do it together, but then Douglas–

Steffy: Douglas had another idea.

Paris: Yeah, he’s excited, and I just hope the two of you can be too.

Ridge: That’s not– Yeah, of course, yes, we’re– Yes. That’s not the issue. The issue is, my son went to France because he… He had his heart broken.

Steffy: Yeah, by Hope.

Ridge: And he wanted to recover and refocus his life.

Paris: Well, he has, Ridge. Your son’s time away has changed him. Hope’s his past. I’m his future. And I’m confident in Thomas’ love and commitment to me.

Steffy: I hope you’re right.

Deacon: She’s got a daughter named Luna who works over at Forrester, and apparently, Bill just found out that he’s her father.

Poppy: Oh!

Tom: Oh. Oh, I’m sorry.

Poppy: Oh, those happen.

Tom: Oh. [ Tom sighing ]

Tom: Bill Spencer, Bill Spencer. Okay, okay, there.

Deacon: Hey, Tom, check it out. Your name in print. What do you think? I gotta tell you, I am so excited to hear you strum the guitar. How do you feel? You, you pumped? You– A little stage fright?

Tom: Listen, Deacon, I can’t thank you enough. I mean, just to get up on stage.

Deacon: Hey, come on. Are you kidding me? Tom Starr’s comeback tour? I mean, in my place? I– I’m honored. Besides, it’s good publicity.

Tom: Well, listen, I don’t know how many of the old fans are going to be coming out of the woodwork, but, uh, listen, back in the day, it was a blast.

Deacon: And it will be again, all right? Listen, I gotta find Hollis, get him to circulate these, get the stage all set up. You just let me know when you want to cut out and get prepped, okay?

Tom: Oh, I will.

Deacon: All right.

Luna: Okay. Okay, bye.

Poppy: Well, someone’s happy.

Luna: Oh, it’s Dad. Checking in for the third time this past hour.

Poppy: Well, he’s never had a daughter before. This is a whole new world for him.

Luna: Yeah, well, this is a whole new world for me, too. Having a dad like Bill Spencer.

Sheila: Hey. So, hydrating for the big night?

Tom: Well, I’m not really into rituals. I always liked to drink before.

Sheila: Yeah, loosens you up.

Tom: Oh, no. No, no, no. No booze. No. I mean, I used to party hard back in the day, but, no, no, it’s just simply a sports drink. Ice blue.

Sheila: Yeah, second chances, right? I– But we all deserve those, don’t we?

Thomas: You know, I gotta admit, I wish you had been this passionate about us before I left for France.

Hope: I was passionate about our future together, Thomas. It was never about that. Or how much I loved you.

Thomas: And I loved you, too. And I kept telling myself that if I kept proposing, one day you would say yes, and you would make me the happiest man in the world, but I was wrong. You didn’t, so I had to go.

Hope: I wish you hadn’t. Everything could be different right now. But I guess I understand. What I don’t understand, though, is this complete 180 that you have taken. I mean, what your life looks like now, with Paris at the center of it. Douglas calling her “mom” in such a short amount of time. How does that happen, Thomas? Tell me. It is too fast. And you know it.

Sheila: Yeah, I– I’ve made mistakes in my past, which you apparently have already looked into. But who hasn’t, right? I mean, who’s perfect? But one thing I do know, I do know that we are all capable of change.

Tom: Well, that’s for sure. I’ve– I’ve led many lives over the years.

Sheila: Yeah, but, well, one– one most recently was helping to save my life. I mean, it was because of you. You led Deacon and Finn to that warehouse, and I will be forever thankful to you, Tom. But I– I choose to see you as the person you are right now, not the– the other one that you keep hinting at, and I– I really hope that you can do the same for me. I just don’t want you trudging up my past to my husband.

Deacon: All right, I got the PA system out of storage, and you, my man, are looking good for your show tonight.

Tom: You know, I was just living on the streets. I wasn’t sure where my next meal was coming from. And now, I’m here. You know, I’m gearing up for my first show in years. I– I can’t thank you enough, Deacon, both of you.

Deacon: Hey, Tom, I can never thank you for helping me save Sheila’s life.

Tom: You’re helping me save mine. And more than you could possibly know. Well, hey, listen, enough of this sappiness. I– I gotta go to the kitchen. I– I think I got a couple more deliveries before the show.

Paris: Um, well, it feels like I need to say this, but it’s probably on your minds, but you’re just too polite to bring it up. It’s no secret the horrible things my father’s done to you, Steffy, to Liam, to Hope, to your families.

Ridge: No one is blaming you for what your dad did.

Steffy: Yeah, or– or Zoe, or how Thomas got caught up in it.

Paris: Which, you have to know, is something that he’ll always regret.

Ridge: Yeah, we know he worked very hard to put his life back on track.

Steffy: Yeah, we see it now. Or you wouldn’t be wearing Thomas’ ring.

Paris: True. Though I have to admit, I was a little cautious at first. Thomas was in an emotional tailspin, reeling over what had just happened with Hope, but I’d been at a similar point in my life, you know, loving someone who ultimately couldn’t commit. I swore I’d never let that happen again. I promised myself I’d protect my heart at all costs, but I didn’t need to worry. Because Thomas was there, protecting it for me.

Thomas: I– Look, I hear what you’re saying, Hope. You’re concerned.

Hope: Oh, so you get why I’m wondering if you’ve really thought this through.

Thomas: You think I proposed to Paris on the rebound?

Hope: I don’t know. You tell me, given that you proposed to me not too long ago.

Thomas: Okay, look, I– I went off to Paris to get past what had happened between us. And Paris was already there, living her life. And we reconnected and–

Hope: And fell in love. So deeply within that short amount of time.

Thomas: You’re obviously having a problem with this, and I understand why. But I am not getting any younger. I want another child. I want a family.

Hope: With Paris. So, she is your future now?

Poppy: This is such an exciting time for you, my beautiful baby girl.

Luna: For you too, Mom. You know, you’re finally back with the man that you loved and lost all those years ago.

Poppy: It truly is a miracle the way things worked out. [ phone rings ]

Luna: Oh, it’s RJ. I’m gonna go take it.

Poppy: Tell him I said hi. [ doorbell rings ]

Tom: Pizza delivery, Poppy.

Poppy: Tom? What are you doing here?

Deacon: Tom still isn’t back.

Sheila: No, why?

Deacon: I just thought maybe he’d want to do a sound check.

Sheila: Oh, look at you.

Deacon: What?

Sheila: Not only one of the top restaurateurs in all of Los Angeles, but here comes your nightclub experience, hard at work.

Deacon: You know, when I found out Tom was in a band and used to play the circuit, I just, you know, thought it’d be some good buzz for the place. Do owe him a lot. Babe, if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have found you. You know, he’s down on his luck.

Sheila: Uh-huh. Which is why you gave him a job here.

Deacon: I think it was the least I could do. I’m just glad it worked out.

Sheila: Yeah, so far. I mean, there really is so much that we still don’t know about him. Tom, well, I mean, is still somewhat of a mystery, don’t you think?

Poppy: How did you know where I live?

Tom: Saw you at Il Giardino’s. I thought I should stop by. I got your name in the delivery system. Nice digs. Free pizza.

Poppy: I don’t know what you’re doing here, but you need to leave.

Tom: Oh, don’t play games with me, Poppy.

Poppy: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Tom: Oh, I think you do. I think you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Ridge: It wasn’t that long ago that my son wanted to spend his life with Hope. Marry her, and raise Douglas together.

Paris: You think I’m deluding myself. Living in a fool’s paradise. I assure you, I’m not. Thomas and I have had long, deep, intense conversations. We’ve opened ourselves up to each other. We’ve connected like never before. He’s been honest with me. Will Hope and Thomas always care for each other? Yes. Will there always be history there? Yes. But now, Thomas can see a future where he’s happy with someone other than Hope.

Steffy: With you.

Paris: Yeah. Your brother has been very transparent with me, Steffy. And I trust him. Even around Hope.

Thomas: Look, I watched my sister finally break out of those unhealthy patterns. The toxic patterns she had with Liam. And she moved on. Into a better relationship. Now, she’s with Finn, and she’s happy, right? Don’t you want that for me?

Hope: Thomas, I want you to be happy and this is–

Thomas: Okay, and Paris? Paris makes me happy. Do we both have baggage? Absolutely. We have things we have to work on, but I would not have proposed to her if I didn’t think we could make a go of it. Paris is who I’m gonna spend the rest of my le with. She’s gonna be my wife.

Deacon: Do you think Tom has secrets?

Sheila: I mean, doesn’t everyone?

Poppy: This is my home. I didn’t invite you here. If you don’t leave right now, I’m gonna call security.

Tom: Come on, relax. I don’t want to cause any trouble. I’m just delivering a pizza.

Poppy: A pizza that I didn’t order.

Tom: It’s a freebie. And it’s your favorite.

Poppy: Okay, fine. I ask you to leave, and you leave me no choice.

Tom: Hey, wait, wa– hold on. Hold on. You’re overreacting. I come in peace. I haven’t forgotten about you. And I know you haven’t forgotten about me.

Poppy: For the last time, you need to leave now.

Luna: Mom? What’s going on? Who are you?

Poppy: No one. He’s just, uh, delivering a pizza. The gates will open on your way out.

Paris: Look, Thomas and I are on the same page. We want a family. A wonderful, full life, and we’re excited to make that happen. For us and for Douglas.

Ridge: And I’m happy to hear that, but we– some–

Steffy: We’re going to be somewhat cautious.

Paris: Of course. Marriage is a big step. Especially when there’s a little boy to consider. But I will make the Forrester family proud, Ridge. You won’t be disappointed in me. As a daughter-in-law, or as a sister-in-law.

Steffy: Hope put Thomas through hell. I’m really grateful you’re in his life now.

Thomas: Look, I am not trying to hurt you, Hope. You will always be important to me, but our time has passed. And yes, we will continue to co-parent our little boy together. As much as Douglas loves you, he also loves Paris, too. And the three of us, we’re creating our own little family. And soon, Paris and I will be married, and it will be official.

Hope: Okay. If that is your decision, I guess I will have to accept it. Please know, Thomas, I… I will always want what’s best for you. And in spite of everything that has happened between us, I… I’ll always love you.

Steffy: Hoo-wee! That kiss just now. Did you really think that’s all it would take and Thomas would come running back to you?

Hope: Steffy, could you please leave me alone? I am in no mood.

Steffy: Oh, I know that. Thomas ended it with you. He wants nothing to do with you, so you need to respect that. Respect Thomas’ decision. Don’t even think about getting into his head. Because remember, he proposed to you twice. And you turned him down. So, don’t even think about hurting or disappointing my brother again.

[ relaxed music ]

Hope: So, you and Paris are… what?

Thomas: I was trying to tell you, Hope.

Douglas: Did I say something wrong, Dad?

Thomas: No, bud, you didn’t say anything wrong.

Hope: So, you came back because you’re engaged. To Paris Buckingham.

Thomas: I proposed and she accepted. We’re getting married.

Steffy: Hope’s optimism is commendable, but it isn’t realistic.

Ridge: Hope For the Future’s in transition. I’m sure they’re gonna bounce back.

Steffy: I’m not going to fight you on it this time.

Ridge: I’m so glad to hear it. Thank you.

Steffy: I admit, at its peak, Hope for the Future, it was a very innovative and creative line.

Ridge: Mm-hmm. Can be again.

Steffy: You say give it more time. Fine. And I’m sure our newest executive member feels the same way, so we will.

Ridge: Hope and her line deserve that.

Steffy: Okay, we’re giving her another quarter to prove herself, but let’s be honest. RJ and Zende, they are great designers. They are. They’re doing their best. But Hope for the Future? It hasn’t been the same since Thomas left.

Ridge: You’re right.

Steffy: I’m right?

Ridge: Yes. Hope for the Future’s not the same now that Thomas is gone.

Steffy: Thank you.

Ridge: But that doesn’t mean it can’t be great again because Zende, RJ, they’re very talented. And Zende’s experience, that’s the key here.

Steffy: Okay, but he’s not in charge. Hope is. And her judgment lately has been a little bit iffy.

Ridge: Okay, you’re right about that too. Inviting Sheila back into her life, it– it’s just disappointing.

Steffy: Completely irrational? Let’s face it, Hope for the Future isn’t the only thing that hasn’t been the same lately. Hope is losing it. She’s been completely off the rails and I keep thinking she’s going to try to pull herself together, but she hasn’t. Ever since Thomas made the wise decision to take Douglas and leave for Paris.

Thomas: You’re shocked.

Paris: Well, we did keep things kind of private.

Thomas: Yeah, to give it time.

Hope: When? How?

Paris: Well, as you know, I’ve been working at International. I was already there when Thomas moved.

Thomas: Yeah. We started hanging out, grabbed a few meals together. Douglas, too.

Douglas: Paris took me to see some really cool art.

Paris: And you took me to your favorite pastry shop.

Hope: And where were you?

Thomas: Well, somebody had to carry the prints and all the bakery boxes, so.

Douglas: It’s okay, Mom. You don’t have to worry. I know Dad. He really loves Paris. This is for real.

Paris: Hey, Douglas. How about we give your dad and Hope some time alone?

Douglas: Yeah. I haven’t seen Grandpa and Aunt Steffy yet. I’ll see you later. I’ve missed you a lot.

Hope: Me too. Wow.

Thomas: I was going to tell you on my own.

Hope: Just no warning. You just come back to announce your engagement?

Thomas: Didn’t seem like news to reveal over the phone. [ Hope scoffing ]

Hope: Oh. Oh, wow. How could I have been so wrong? How could I have misread that? You– you came into the office, Douglas ran into my arms. I was so happy for a minute. I thought, “They’re home. It’s– Everything is going to be okay. I don’t have to worry anymore.” I really thought you came back to… To restart our life together, Thomas.

Steffy: Hope never understood how badly she could hurt Thomas.

Ridge: I’m sure that wasn’t her intention.

Steffy: Her intention was to never marry Thomas. And– and she knew that from the start.

Ridge: I think the two of them saw that differently.

Steffy: Well, who was right? And now, Hope resents me for it.

Ridge: You– you guys are at each other for all kinds of stuff lately.

Steffy: I think I’ve moved on.

Ridge: I think we all want to.

Steffy: I know Thomas has.

Ridge: Yeah, it does seem that way.

Steffy: But Hope hasn’t. She thinks I’m the reason Douglas and Thomas left for Paris, but that is not true. It’s her fault. And Thomas understands that. Like, I talk to him and he says that I’m right.

Ridge: You talk to him?

Steffy: Yeah, I do. I talk to him a lot. We chat on video calls and Douglas chats with his cousins. It’s really cute.

Ridge: I miss those guys so much.

Steffy: I know. I really miss them.

Ridge: But, you gotta remember that they’re where they need to be. Paris has been really good to them.

Steffy: Yeah, you can say that again.

Douglas: Grandpa! [ Steffy gasping ]

Ridge: What? Wait, what are you–

Steffy: Honey! Oh, my God.

Ridge: What are you doing here?

Steffy: Get over here! What– Wait, what are you doing here?

Douglas: Visiting you.

Steffy: Are– We– This is crazy. We were just talking about– We were talking about you and how much we miss you.

Douglas: I miss you too.

Ridge: I talked to your dad the other day. He didn’t tell me anything about you coming over here.

Douglas: We wanted to surprise you.

Ridge: Well, this is a–

Steffy and Ridge: Surprise!

Ridge: Biggest surprise ever.

Steffy: Wait, so wait, it’s– it’s– it’s you and your father? You’re here?

Douglas: Not just us. His fiancée’s here, too.

Ridge: His what? His– his fiancée?

Steffy: What? They’re engaged?

Ridge: Wait, so he’s been seeing somebody? Who?

Paris: Me.

Steffy: Paris! Oh, my God.

Paris: Hi, Steffy! It’s been a while.

Steffy: Yeah, I guess I don’t have to ask you how things are going with Thomas.

Paris: Pretty well, I’d say.

Ridge: You knew about this?

Steffy: Well, I knew Paris and Thomas were dating, but I didn’t realize that they’re engaged. Oh, my God!

Thomas: This is why I wanted to tell you in person. So I could explain.

Hope: Well, I — I didn’t even know that you were dating and now you’re engaged to Paris?

Thomas: Look, Douglas didn’t mean to spring that on you. He just got excited.

Hope: He called Paris “mom.”

Thomas: Well, we’re gonna be married, so…

Hope: Why are you doing this?

Thomas: I’m doing this because Paris is an incredible woman. She’s ambitious and creative and loving.

Hope: And does she care at all that you were engaged to her sister once upon a time? And that, oh yeah, you proposed to me not too long ago.

Thomas: She knows all that. And she also knows why I had to leave L.A.

Hope: Yeah, because of your feelings for me.

Thomas: And my need to move past them.

Hope: So, this is how you do it? Marrying someone else so quickly? Thomas, that is not how it works.

Thomas: You know what doesn’t work? Being in love with someone and asking them to marry you over and over again, and them saying no. That doesn’t work. I had to take that dream and give it away.

Hope: There are other ways to be committed, Thomas.

Thomas: Yes, there are, but Paris wants to be my wife.

Hope: Gosh, of course, she does. Look at all you have to offer, Thomas. Any woman would be lucky enough to… And I… just wasn’t ready.

Thomas: I know. And a part of me is always gonna love you, Hope. But I had to move on. You gave me no choice.

Douglas: I gave it away again.

Paris: No, Douglas, it’s okay. You’re excited. We are too.

Douglas: But Dad wanted to tell everyone together.

Ridge: Well, I’m just glad somebody’s telling me something. So, you’re engaged?

Paris: You’re surprised.

Ridge: Yeah, I’m surprised. I didn’t know you were dating.

Douglas: Dad’s happy. For real. And I am too. Paris is great. Dad loves her a lot.

Paris: And I love you both more than I can say. Hey, remember you said you were gonna say hello to Charlie after you said hello to your family?

Steffy: Oh, he’s probably in his office.

Paris: Yeah, that’ll give me a chance to talk to your aunt and grandpa.

Douglas: I’m so glad to be home.

Ridge: Me too. Keep an eye on Charlie, okay?

Douglas: Okay.

Ridge: Bye. Wow.

Paris: Well, I’m sure you guys have a lot of questions.

Steffy: Yes.

Ridge: That’s an understatement.

Steffy: Dad, it wasn’t my place to say anything.

Ridge: So, you knew about this engagement?

Steffy: No, no. I knew that Thomas and Paris were a couple. I didn’t know about the engagement.

Paris: Like Douglas said, Thomas wanted to tell you all in person.

Ridge: How long have you guys been dating?

Paris: We reconnected shortly after Douglas and Thomas moved to Paris and we’ve been together ever since.

Ridge: I– I saw him over there. He didn’t mention anything about any of this.

Paris: Yeah, well, he wanted to enjoy his time with you. He wasn’t sure how you’d react after, you know, knowing how fast things have been going. Especially after leaving Hope. But Thomas and I, we bonded over our commitment to improving ourselves, and the world as much as we can. I dedicated my life to non-profit work, expanding the Forrester Foundation globally, and Thomas, he’s focusing on being the best designer and father to Douglas. Thomas’ first few weeks in Paris were a little sad and lonely. He didn’t have that spark I remembered. Except for when he was with Douglas. At first, I was just trying to cheer them up.

Ridge: Well, I appreciate that.

Paris: Yeah, I couldn’t let your son go through another dark chapter in his life. He’s gone through a lot worse than a little rejection. And I saw how strong he was. And how– how beautiful he is and I knew he could depend on me. And over time, we just formed this bond. This profound connection. I love Thomas. And I know he really loves me.

Hope: I know I hurt you and I know I let you down. And I am sorry, Thomas. But that didn’t mean that I stopped loving you. That didn’t mean that I wanted you to leave.

Thomas: I had to leave.

Hope: No, you didn’t. You didn’t. You ran. You could have stayed. You could have worked it out.

Thomas: You said no. You didn’t want to marry me.

Hope: You know that I needed time. And now, you– You’re already engaged?

Thomas: And it’s not just some random person. This is someone I’ve known for a long time.

Hope: So what, have you… Have you just forgotten everything that we shared?

Thomas: No, Hope. I haven’t forgotten anything. You’ve been there for me, you inspired me, you encouraged me and I’m so grateful for that. I am never going to forget what we had.

Hope: Then, how can you move on so quickly with someone else like we were nothing?

Thomas: Paris and I have something special, too.

Hope: Oh, gosh, I– I want– I want to be happy for you. Really, I do, but this is just, this is–

Thomas: Yeah, well, Hope, I’m not asking for that. I just needed you to know. Hope, it’s gonna be okay.

Hope: You were my constant. You were like my– my north star. When my life was upside down and unstable, I knew that I could look to you for reassurance. I mean, you were– you were steadfast. Your commitment, your love, your devotion. I mean… a one-woman man. And you still are, aren’t you? Only that woman isn’t me anymore, is it? Paris? Are you sure you love her?

Paris: Oh, you’re not sure what to say.

Ridge: It’s a lot to digest.

Steffy: Totally caught off guard, but Thomas raves about you. He’s never once mentioned marriage, like–

Paris: He wanted to tell you himself. Announce it together.

Steffy: Where is he now?

Paris: With Hope.

Steffy: Hope. Hope. Okay.

Paris: Yeah, Douglas was super excited to see her, so he rushed into the office and we were right there behind him.

Steffy: You were with Thomas?

Paris: Yeah.

Ridge: Oh. So, she saw you. She knows?

Paris: Well, it’s kind of hard to ignore this generous engagement ring.

Steffy: I mean, this is absolutely beautiful.

Paris: Thank you.

Ridge: It’s quite a statement.

Steffy: So, how did, uh, Hope take it? It must have been a shock for her.

Paris: Yeah, that’s why I brought Douglas in here. Just to give Thomas and Hope a chance to talk.

Steffy: Oh, oh– okay. Do you think that’s wise, given their history? No, look, I– I know Thomas moved on, but Hope? I don’t know. I don’t know if she’s ready to let go of him.

Paris: Well, in the past, I might have been concerned about that. Maybe even a little insecure. But not anymore. I believe in Thomas’ love for me. That’s why I agreed to marry him. Because I’m certain he’s finally over Hope.

Hope: Tell me, Thomas. Say the words. Do you really love Paris?

Thomas: I asked her to marry me.

Hope: Still didn’t answer my question–

Thomas: Yes, I did, Hope. I hate seeing you this upset. [ Hope scoffing ]

Hope: What did you expect?

Thomas: I asked you to marry me twice and you turned me down.

Hope: And then you went and proposed to someone else.

Thomas: Yeah, well sometimes you gotta ask the question a few times before you get the answer you want.

Hope: From Paris. Thomas, I know you said that you share something special. You know it will never even be close to what we share. What we had was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before and I know that you feel the same. Those first moments together in Rome. The– the high of the fashion show. Our kiss in front of the Coliseum. The– the sparks. The connection. It wasn’t just a temporary thing, Thomas. It wasn’t just passion or desire. It was real. We created something beautiful. Something deep. Something true. A man has never moved me the way that you do. And I know you feel that way too. There’s still– there’s still so much potential for us, Thomas. This– this doesn’t have to be the way at all. It all happens to be. I– You remember, everyone was trying to break us apart. Steffy, your mother, they couldn’t break our connection. They can’t break what we share. There’s still so much future ahead for us if we just want it. You can choose a different path. We can still have it all. You don’t have to marry Paris, Thomas. Please, don’t go through with this.

[ majestic music ]

Hope: Oh, Douglas, this is– this is the best surprise ever. Look at you. Look at you, my sweet boy. Oh! Oh, I’m so happy to see you.

Douglas: Me too.

Hope: You came home.

Sheila: Now, don’t believe everything you hear on the internet.

Tom: I will not make that mistake again.

Sheila: Deacon was kind enough to give you a job here and this is how you show your gratitude? Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get a job in a restaurant like this?

Tom: God, are you telling me? This place is killer. Oh, wait. I– No, no, I’m– I’m very grateful.

Sheila: Yep. Then, start showing it. No more spills.

Poppy: This place will always have a piece of my heart.

Bill: Where we ran into each other some 20-plus years later?

Poppy: It’s crazy how fate works. [ Bill chuckling ]

Bill: There she is.

Poppy: Hi, perfect timing.

Luna: Hi, sorry I’m late.

Poppy: We’re so happy that you could join us.

Bill: We certainly are.

Luna: Hi, Dad.

Bill: How’s my beautiful daughter?

Bill: Will you look at that, my brand-new daughter and she doesn’t even need a high chair.

Luna: Oh, yeah, you missed out on that stage. My mom said I was a really bossy toddler.

Bill: Oh, definitely my kid.

Poppy: Yes, she was always quite a determined little girl.

Bill: Still is.

Poppy: Luna is the best of both of us, Bill.

Bill: Yes, she is. You raised a phenomenal young woman, Poppy.

Poppy: We’ve all waited a long time for a moment like this. Just out together, enjoying a meal as a family. Now there, that is what it’s all about. I mean, the way you two look at each other, already so connected and thrilled to be in each other’s lives. It’s a dream come true for me. It really is.

Luna: For all of us.

Poppy: We finally get to be a family.

Hope: So, you just got in from Paris?

Douglas: Yep, we came straight from the airport.

Thomas: Yeah, Douglas couldn’t wait to see you.

Hope: Well, I– This is amazing. I had no idea that you were coming back to Los Angeles.

Douglas: I wanted to surprise you.

Thomas: His idea.

Hope: Well, you certainly accomplished that. I mean, you made my whole day, my whole month, my whole year. Oh, Douglas, I hope you know how much I love you and just how much I’ve missed you.

Douglas: I missed you.

Hope: And, uh, you’ve been missed too, Thomas.

Tom: Listen, I– I don’t want any trouble. I know better than to go toe to toe with a strong woman like you.

Sheila: I don’t want any drama.

Tom: No, let– let me make this up to ya. We– we can forget about all this. Listen, I am just here to do a job. I’m a hard worker, and– and I will do it well.

Sheila: I hope so.

Tom: I tend to– to win people over. It’s what I do.

Sheila: Okay, I– I do hope so, Tom and… I really appreciate you saving my life.

Tom: Oh, I’m– I’m really glad I did. Listen, we’re all part of the Il Giardino family.

Sheila: Yeah.

Tom: I want, you know, me and you to get along.

Sheila: Yeah, well, we’re co-workers. There’s gotta be a certain level of professionalism.

Tom: Yeah, right, right. Yeah. Let me prove myself, okay? I mean, Deacon and I were just talking about this. I’m a firm believer in second chances. And I assume you are too. Since you’ve had a second chance, and– and a third chance, and a fourth chance, and a fifth chance.

Sheila: Okay, Tom, Tom.

Tom: Listen. My point is, you have to believe that it’s never too late to change. Look at me. I was a dumpster diver. And– and now, I’m working at one of the hottest restaurants in Southern California. And it’s about to get hotter.

Luna: I mean, this has been crazy. I think this is the first time since the paternity test that we’ve been able to just sit down and breathe.

Poppy: Hmm, our first family outing.

Bill: Certainly fitting, right here at Il Giardino.

Luna: Yeah, where you two found each other again.

Bill: And now, we’re here with our daughter.

Poppy: You knew in your heart she was yours.

Bill: I did.

Deacon: How’s everything so far?

Poppy: It’s great, thank you.

Deacon: Luna, right? RJ’s girlfriend?

Luna: Yes, hi.

Deacon: Hi.

Bill: More than RJ’s girlfriend. This remarkable young woman is my daughter.

Deacon: [ chuckles ] Really? Come on, you’re pulling my leg.

Luna: No, no. I recently found out that Bill is my biological dad.

Deacon: Wow, I — I had no idea. Uh, good for you, that’s great. It’s a nice addition to the Spencer empire. Uh, Bill, all kidding aside, really, congratulations. Besides, the Spencer family just got a lot better-looking. I’m gonna go check out the kitchen. If you guys need anything, please let me know, okay?

Luna: Okay.

Bill: Better get used to me bragging on you. I’m gonna walk up to every stranger in the street and let them know you’re my daughter.

Luna: God, I’m so happy that you’re my dad. And I– I don’t know, I just, I finally feel whole. Like this question mark that’s been hanging over my head my entire life has finally been lifted. Like, I know who I am now, where I come from. I have three brothers and two nieces, a whole extended family and I just feel the most grounded and connected that I’ve ever been. You okay, Mom?

Poppy: Yeah. I’m just so happy.

Hope: I missed you. A lot.

Thomas: I missed you too.

Douglas: Hey, can I go get a snack from the kitchen?

Thomas: Yeah, sure, but just don’t be gone too long, okay?

Douglas: Okay.

Thomas: Okay.

Douglas: Bye.

Hope: So…

Thomas: You– you look beautiful. You always do.

Hope: Thank you. You look as handsome as ever.

Thomas: Look, Hope.

Hope: It’s nice to–

Thomas: You go first.

Hope: I guess, um… Uh, it’s… It’s really nice seeing you. It’s been a little… difficult, ever since you left.

Thomas: You understand why I had to go.

Hope: Yes. But also, no. Really threw me. More than anybody realizes.

Thomas: How are you? I mean, I know that we’ve talked about Douglas here and there, but… are you okay?

Hope: Am I okay? Uh… Not really sure how to answer that. Um, I’m hanging in there. The line is hanging in there, barely. Uh… it’s just been very… Very confusing. And my mind has– has been a bit all over the place.

Thomas: Confusing? In what way?

Hope: I guess I just feel like I haven’t been myself lately. I don’t exactly trust my feelings. So, I guess what I am trying to say is that I am just very, very glad that you and Douglas are back.

Poppy: I wish I had the courage to find you and tell you that you might have a daughter.

Bill: Okay, enough. Enough. You’ve got to stop doing that. There’s– there will be no more looking back.

Poppy: Yes, but… I was afraid that you wouldn’t want to be involved. That you would reject having a daughter.

Bill: How could that possibly happen? The opportunity to– to parent this remarkable young woman. Be her dad. You have given me the greatest gift, Poppy.

Luna: Yeah, me too, Mom.

Bill: We’re going to have decades together. So many years. So, we are not going to look back, okay? We are just going to focus on the future. End of story.

Poppy: Thank you both for being so forgiving.

Bill: You haven’t taken anything away from my life, Poppy. To the contrary. You’ve added immeasurably to it. And now that we’re all together, no one is going to take you away from me.

Tom: Hey, Deacon?

Deacon: Yeah?

Tom: Who is this guy?

Deacon: Oh, Mr. Congeniality. It’s Dollar Bill Spencer, and the new lady in his life. She’s not bad looking, is she? She’s got a daughter named Luna who works over at Forrester, and apparently, Bill just found out that he’s her father.

Tom: What?

Deacon: Yeah. I’m not a Dollar Bill fan, but he’s really welcomed them into the family.

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: It’s been busy around here.

Thomas: I’ll bet.

Hope: Oh, it’s Zende’s.

Thomas: Yeah. It’s nice.

Hope: Yeah, he’s — he’s really doing great. He’s made some really wonderful contributions to Hope for the Future.

Thomas: That’s good. You know, I– I know I left you in kind of a bind, so I’m glad he could step up.

Hope: Yes, but it’s not the same. I mean, Thomas, you– you knew exactly what I wanted, what I needed. It was like you could read my mind, and when I think about the woman I aspire to be, and– and what I want that life to look like, I, um… I’ve just been feeling very lost.

Thomas: Come on, Hope. I mean, you’re– you always have it together. You can handle anything.

Hope: Well, I’m not sure about that anymore. I’m really beginning to doubt myself. Thomas, when I was with you, I just… Oh, I found stability. I– I had something and someone that I could rely on, and I know that you were truly committed to me, and I just want you to know that meant the world to me.

Thomas: I… I don’t know what to say.

Hope: You don’t have to say anything. Just know that, um… I’ve really been trying hard to… To bury it, and to distract myself from it, but just know that you’ve been so, so missed, Thomas.

Luna: We’ll have birthdays and holidays.

Bill: Vacations on the Stella Maris.

Poppy: Ooh, that is Bill’s yacht. Can you imagine us sailing into Monte Carlo? It’s like, ooh, la dee da.

Luna: Okay, so my mom clearly has already gone bathing suit shopping.

Bill: Hey, listen, we are doing it. I’m gonna see if the boys can join us as well.

Luna: Okay, I’d be down for that. It sounds like so much fun.

Bill: No, we’re gonna have so many vacations together and adventures, and you know what? Celebrate milestone after milestone as a family.

Luna: What do we say? Should we take our first official family selfie?

Bill: Oh, heck yeah, let’s do it. Absolutely. Say, uh, Spencer selfie.

Luna and Poppy: Spencer selfie!

Bill: …be a good one in there.

Hope: It feels so good to be in your arms again. [ Hope sighing ] I needed this. Thomas, I know I disappointed you when I turned down your proposal, but please know I never, ever meant to hurt you. That’s the last thing I wanted.

Thomas: Right. But you did hurt me, ’cause you turned me down twice.

Hope: I wasn’t expecting it, though. I thought you understood.

Thomas: It shouldn’t have come as a surprise, though, Hope, considering how deeply I felt for you.

Hope: I mean, I… I haven’t forgotten. Thomas, I wanted to be ready for you. I didn’t want there to be anything false between us. I was still under so much pressure. I mean, I was recovering from my divorce. I was trying to consider the children and how my decisions really affect them. I just wasn’t ready to be married again so soon. I needed more time to recenter myself and to build up my confidence again, Thomas, but that didn’t mean that I wanted to lose you. It didn’t mean that I wanted to end things between us. Because I know how rare a man like you is. Your devotion. Your love for the only woman in your life, so… I have to wonder, why… Why did you come back? Why now? I mean… Can we be together again? Did you come back to give us another shot? Hi!

Thomas: Hey, bud.

Douglas: Hi.

Hope: Were you, uh, were you able to find some snacks? Paris!

Paris: Hi, Hope.

Hope: Hi. Oh, my– I haven’t seen you in so long. What are– what are you doing here?

Douglas: Mom?

Paris and Hope: Yes?

Hope: Douglas, why did you just call Paris mom? What is going on here?

Thomas: Hope, there’s something you should know. Paris and I are engaged. We’re going to be married.

Brooke: Oh, wow. You already beat me in, and you’ve done like a hundred things. It’s not a very good look for the newest executive.

Hope: Oh please, Mom, stop. I just, I happen to have early drop off with Beth today and I just wanted to take advantage of the time since I’ve been out. You know, while she had the flu.

Brooke: Okay, well, family always comes first. We know that. Uh, I didn’t get to finish talking to you about Finn yesterday. And I know what you said, but I am wondering if you’re really going to be able to fight those feelings.

Hope: Well, I have to.

Brooke: Yes, you do, because I can’t imagine the damage that could be done because of this misguided attraction.

Hope: Well, it is deeper than that, Mom. I mean, these feelings, Finn and I, we– we have a genuine friendship, and it’s a friendship that I would like to not risk destroying, so I will, um, I’ll just have to handle it.

Brooke: Come here. You’re doing the right thing.

Hope: Thank you.

Brooke: You are.

Hope: Mmm.

Ridge: What’s going on here?

Brooke: Oh! ♪♪

Tom: Hey, Deacon.

Deacon: Yeah.

Tom: Um, I want to make amends to you about yesterday. I mean, you’ve been really nice to me and I came at you with all that stuff about Sheila. Look, I don’t want to overstep. See, I genuinely care about you. See, you– you turned my life around. You gave me a job when I couldn’t get the world to make eye contact with me. And you see, that’s why I want to be the best possible employee I could be. I mean, I want to kick butt here. And, you know, that’s why I– I started looking on the internet.

Deacon: And you stumbled on some information about my new bride.

Tom: She’s got a colorful past, to say the least. I mean, the stuff I was reading about her, whew.

Deacon: Listen, Tom. It’s okay, all right? But it’s a conversation for another time. Right now, what I need you to do is go into the supply closet and here’s what– here’s what I’m going to need, and then I want you to make a list of the cleaning supplies that we need in there because I’m going to put an order in later today, okay? All right?

Tom: You got it, boss.

Deacon: All right, thanks.

Sheila: So? How are you liking your new employee?

Deacon: Well, I think– He’s a lot more pleasant than some of the customers.

Sheila: Oh. No, no, no, no. Not in my section today. I’m– I am not in the mood.

Deacon: You owe me. ♪♪ Well, hello, hello. I didn’t see you on the reservation list, Bill.

Poppy: Nozawa. Party of two? Um, your staff was kind enough to change our reservation from yesterday. Because something came up for Bill. You know what it’s like running a multi-billion dollar corporation. See?

Deacon: There it is. Uh, inside or outside?

Bill: Oh, Deacon, you know me. I’m easy. Well, that’s not entirely true. Anywhere but the homicidal maniac section. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪

Deacon: So, how do you take it?

Bill: Black. And, uh, oat milk and agave for the lady.

Poppy: Very good.

Deacon: Okay, I’ll go get that, and your server will be over in a second to take your order.

Bill: What’s the smile for?

Poppy: You. This.

Bill: You made the reservation.

Poppy: No. I mean this existence I suddenly have. You’ve transformed my life, Bill. And my daughter’s. Our daughter’s. ♪♪

Ridge: There you go.

Brooke: Thank you.

Ridge: So, is this what you’re doing now? You’re going to come down on your daughter because you have a leadership position?

Brooke: No. I would never. Unless it was necessary. Which in this case, it’s not. Wouldn’t you agree?

Ridge: Oh, wow. That’s, um… can I– can I say one thing?

Hope: Well, I did already ask them to adjust the length.

Ridge: Good. Yeah, now that’s perfect. Still seems like I walked in on something. Is this, uh, Hope for the Future business, is that?

Hope: No, I– I am confident that our line will bounce back, and I am very grateful that we have the extra quarter to achieve that.

Ridge: Right, which is something my daughter didn’t agree with. So, is this it? Is this about Steffy?

Brooke: Uh… ♪♪

Poppy: I hope you know how happy I am.

Bill: You made that pretty clear this morning.

Poppy: I still have a ways to go to show you just how happy in that department.

Bill: Check, please.

Poppy: No, seriously. We have so much to be grateful for. To celebrate the family we’ve suddenly become. I meant what I said, Bill. You’ve transformed my life. And Luna’s.

Bill: You’ve transformed mine as well. You’ve given me a daughter, Poppy. I don’t have the words. I really don’t. A daughter. ♪♪

Ridge: So, what’s going on here? If this is about Steffy, then maybe I can help, and I should know about it.

Hope: Um, honestly, I don’t really think there is anything you can do to help. It’s, uh… I don’t know. I– I, yes, have been struggling with something, but I’m sure it’s nothing– nothing to do with whatever you’re thinking it is.

Ridge: Well, I’m thinking it’s Steffy, so it has nothing to do with that, is that– yeah?

Hope: Um, okay, fine. Um, honestly, I think I have been a little lost ever since Thomas and Douglas left, and it’s just, uh, left me questioning a lot of things.

Ridge: What things?

Hope: My feelings. I guess they– they’ve kind of been all over the place.

Ridge: Your feelings for Thomas, you mean?

Hope: Uh, I– I don’t– Um, I don’t really know. I don’t really want to get into it. Just know that it– it is not going to affect my work.

Ridge: Good, like to hear that. Listen, you’re lucky you have your mom to lean on, but if you ever want a man’s opinion, I’m– I’m here too. You can talk to me.

Hope: Well, thank you for that.

Ridge: You’re welcome. It is none of my business, but I don’t know how it ended with you and Thomas. I don’t, I don’t know what happened, really, but… I know that boy loved you. Loved you very much. ♪♪

Tom: We got Caesar salad.

Deacon: All right.

Tom: We got garlic bread.

Deacon: Okay.

Tom: And three orders of toe hors d’oeuvres. I mean, I can’t believe that that became such a big hit.

Deacon: You know, after the wedding, I put ’em on the menu. People cannot get enough of them.

Tom: Toes. You know, it just kind of freaks me out to think that Sheila cut off one of her own toes to fake a bear attack.

Deacon: Well, I guess she did what she had to do, right?

Tom: I guess. I– maybe. You know, it– it just doesn’t seem like something a mentally stable person would– would do. Hang on a second. Oh, crap. It’s the wine distributor. This guy. I — mmm, he is such a pain in the butt. I– I gotta take this. Uh, can you get a pitcher of water and just fill everyone’s glass, please? I gotta deal with this.

Sheila: We really do appreciate everything that you’re doing for us.

Tom: Duty calls.

Deacon: Zinfandel? Gewurztraminer? ♪♪

Bill: Adorable. What’d you say? She was around ten?

Poppy: Mm-hmm. I took Luna and two of her friends to the community pool. She had so much fun. That girl could not stop begging me to take her swimming.

Bill: Well, I have some good news for you. You’re living with me now, and Luna has a couple of pools on the estate.

Poppy: Thank goodness. You know, I think I’ll start planning her next birthday now. Maybe even allow three of her friends.

Bill: Three? Wow.

Poppy: Mm-hmm.

Tom: Uh, more water?

Poppy: Yes, please.

Bill: Wow, seriously.

Tom: Oh! Oh, I’m sorry.

Poppy: Oh, no, don’t worry about it. Look, spills happen.

Tom: Oh–

Poppy: Uh, thank you. That’s, uh, that’s fine. Um… A little privacy, please.

Tom: Um, yeah. Yeah, of course. I’m sorry.

Bill: Deacon can’t even hire a decent busboy. Poppy? Poppy?

Poppy: Hmm? Yes?

Bill: You with me?

Poppy: Yes, I’m– I’m right here. ♪♪

Ridge: I’m not trying to hurt your feelings. It’s just, um, I know my son. I know that how he felt for you was genuine. He thought you guys had a future together. That’s all.

Brooke: Hope wasn’t ready to commit to marriage. Not so soon after ending things with Liam.

Ridge: I get that. And I’m not– Yes, I get it. I’m just trying to find a connection. She’s not feeling well, and it kind of started when Thomas left, so I thought maybe deep down, you thought maybe you made the wrong choice.

Hope: Uh, I’m– I’m not sure how deep down everything has been. I feel like it’s been pretty out in the open. Thomas was fully aware that I was not all right with them leaving. And he knows how I feel about him. And I wanted our relationship to continue, but he needed something more. A marriage. And it didn’t feel right to accept a proposal that I wasn’t ready for.

Ridge: Okay, no, I– I agree with that. I’m sorry. I do. I agree with that. I’m just trying to help you find some peace.

Hope: Well, I’ve been trying to. For some time now, I’m sorry, Mom. I’ve been keeping it in. Um, no, I’ve been trying and I guess it’s been a little harder than I let on. With Thomas and Douglas gone, it’s just been, um, yeah, I’ve been struggling, Ridge, lately. Probably more than people realize.

Ridge: So, what are you doing? Are you reconsidering? Are you…

Hope: I’m still not ready for marriage. I’m just not. To anyone. Anyone. But if and when I am, at least I will have known Thomas’ love, and what it was like to be with someone who only had eyes for me, and… I’m the better for it. Because I will never settle for less than that ever again. ♪♪

Sheila: No more spills?

Tom: I don’t want to talk right now.

Sheila: Yeah, well you know what? I do. I want to know exactly what it is that you think is so terrible about me. I heard you, Tom. I heard you talking to Deacon. And– and regardless of what you read on the internet, there are two sides to every story.

Tom: Yeah, I get that.

Sheila: Well, you want to survive around here? Then, it’s my side you need to be on. ♪♪

Tom: I don’t want to get off on the wrong foot with you.

Sheila: But you have.

Tom: But– but you just got to admit, it– it’s rather surprising.

Sheila: No, you know what is surprising? Me overhearing somebody badmouth me to my husband. Don’t ever do that again. Okay, I– I may have had a colorful past, but it was my past, and it stays there. It’s none of your business. You got me, Tom?

Tom: Yeah, Sheila. Of course. ♪♪

Ridge: Did I cross a line? I– I didn’t mean to.

Brooke: With Hope?

Ridge: Yeah, just bringing up Thomas, and I don’t want her thinking that I’m blaming her. I’m not. Just… she said she felt lost. She looked lost.

Brooke: Yeah. She’s just dealing with a lot right now.

Ridge: More than missing Thomas? I’m doing it again, right? I’m — I’m prying. I don’t, I’m sorry. I don’t…

Brooke: I– I have my concerns about my daughter, but we talked about things and worked through some things. I– I think I got through to her.

Ridge: Of course you did. ‘Cause that’s what you do. You get through to people. It’s one of your talents. And that’s why I hired you.

Brooke: Actually, I think you hired me because you wanted to see me here more often.

Ridge: What? Silly. I do what’s best for the company and, ah, you’re right.

Brooke: Aw.

Ridge: Yes. ♪♪

Thomas: I’ve told you this before, and I will tell you again: I am a one-woman man.

Thomas: Hello, Hope. ♪♪

Steffy: Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Tom: Pizza delivery, Poppy.

Poppy: What are you doing here?

Thomas: I’m glad I finally found someone who wants the same things as me.

Hope: What is going on here?

Thomas: Paris and I are engaged. We’re gonna be married.

[ relaxing music ]

Brooke: I am truly honored to take on this role and help lead Forrester into the future. And I’m excited about working harmoniously with you, Steffy. Forresters and Logans united.

Steffy: Dad, why wouldn’t you come to me first? Let me know what you were thinking. I am your co-CEO. We’ve accomplished so much together.

Ridge: And we’re gonna continue doing that. I’m not stepping away.

Steffy: How? You just wedged Brooke between us in an executive position.

Hope: Which is something my mother more than deserves.

Steffy: Do you– do you not respect me? You don’t wanna give me that one simple courtesy that you were thinking this?

Ridge: How dare you say that? That I don’t– Of course I respect you. I’m stepping away from responsibility. I didn’t want it to land on you.

Steffy: Oh, okay. So you’re doing this for me?

Ridge: I am doing it for you. And I’m doing it for the company. And I guess you don’t see that now, but maybe one day you will.

Poppy: I wasn’t expecting to find you here.

Katie: Surprise.

Poppy: Yes, it is. Did the guard at the gate let you in?

Katie: Oh, his name is Alfred. He’s been with us since I was Bill’s wife.

Poppy: How long ago was that exactly?

Katie: It doesn’t really matter. You’re mistress of the manor now.

Poppy: Yes, but this is all still very new to me, as it was for you once upon a time.

Katie: Well, if you’re asking if I was born into this type of opulence, no, I wasn’t.

Poppy: Neither was I.

Katie: But you seem to be enjoying it, though.

Poppy: Well, I’m enjoying the home that I share with Bill and my daughter. Wouldn’t you if you were in my shoes?

Brooke: You can’t say a word to anybody. Our daughter is having feelings for an inappropriate man.

Deacon: Who?

Brooke: Steffy’s husband.

Deacon: Steffy’s husband?

Brooke: Don’t say it so loud.

Deacon: Hope’s got the hots for Finn? You know, don’t you? [ Sheila coughs ]

Sheila: Excuse me?

Deacon: You were eavesdropping. You heard everything. Sheila, what the hell am I gonna do with you?

Sheila: I– I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Deacon: The travel agent I was speaking to. Come on, you heard my side of the conversation. Now you know I was gonna whisk you away on a belated honeymoon. [ Sheila stammers ]

Sheila: Really?

Deacon: Yeah, really.

Sheila: Oh! Oh, well, where are you going to whisk me away, Mr. Sharpe? Is it someplace tropical where maybe clothing might be optional?

Deacon: Oh, Mrs. Sharpe, you are a very naughty lady.

Sheila: Yeah. I’m also a very lucky lady to be married to such a… oof, incredibly sexy, loving man.

Katie: I have been in your shoes before. [ Poppy chuckles ]

Poppy: Of course. This used to be your home.

Katie: Bill and I moved here when we started our lives together.

Poppy: Um, just as Bill and I are doing now with our daughter.

Katie: Well, obviously you’re settling right in. Quickly.

Poppy: We have a lot of time to make up for. We lost years as a family. I finally want Luna to know her father. And the rest of her siblings, which includes Will. Well, I’m guessing that’s why you’re here, to talk to Bill about that and…

Bill: Talk to me about what? Did I walk in on something?

Steffy: So it’s done. Brooke’s part of the executive team now.

Hope: And I think it’s about time. She has been sidelined for far too long.

Steffy: That was her choice.

Brooke: Well, now I am choosing to roll up my sleeves and play a more important role here at Forrester Creations so your father can–

Steffy: Focus on couture. He doesn’t wanna be inundated with the daily minutia. I understand that. I’m not opposed to it. I welcome it.

Hope: Just not welcoming of a Logan having any sort of say-so in this company.

Carter: If I may interject, everyone here is on the same page about wanting what’s best for Forrester.

Ridge: Absolutely. That’s what it’s all about.

Brooke: I have to agree. But what it shouldn’t be about is division. Forresters versus Logans. Can we all agree on that?

Poppy: Katie and I were just chatting.

Bill: Everything okay?

Poppy: Oh, yeah. I was just surprised to arrive and find her in our home.

Bill: Well, I asked Katie over so we could talk about everything that’s transpired, given that it affects our son. I also wanted to know how Katie was doing with it. It’s been a shock to everyone.

Katie: I mean, to find out after 20 years, that you have a daughter? Poppy never shared that with you.

Poppy: For reasons I explained to Bill. Reasons he understands.

Bill: Poppy has given me an incredible gift. A beautiful, sweet, talented daughter that I am proud to call my own. And I will always be grateful to you for that.

Sheila: I just– I don’t know when I’ve ever been this happy, if ever.

Deacon: Well, I guess I must be doing something right.

Sheila: No. You’re doing everything right. And just being your wife, knowing that you’re standing by me, I’ve never felt that kind of love, that kind of support before.

Deacon: For better, for worse. It’s the pledge that I made to you, and I don’t plan on going back on it. Even when you say things that worry me a little. When you talk about how you’d like to have a bigger role in Hayes’ life, even though you know the chances are slim to none as long as Steffy’s involved and she is involved. She’s his wife, Sheila. I mean, he worships her. Whatever Steffy says goes.

Sheila: You make it sound like my son has no, you know, mind of his own. And he does.

Deacon: No, I get it. He does, okay? But I mean, when you’re talking about the family that the two of them share, you… I know. You wish things were different. But they’re not. Too much has happened. You’ve done too much to Steffy for her to forget or forgive.

Sheila: I’ve changed. I’ve changed.

Deacon: I know, baby. I know you have, and that’s why I married you. I know that you wanna live a life that’s good and positive, and I realize that.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, if only Steffy could realize that too, huh?

Carter: Okay, Ridge, this is completely doable. I’ll connect with Brooke and work out the specifics.

Ridge: It’ll take her a minute to settle in, I think.

Carter: I’ll do everything I can to help.

Ridge: Thank you.

Carter: We all will.

Ridge: Hey, listen, this is an adjustment for everybody, but it’s gonna be good for us. It’s gonna be what’s best for the company. And that’s the most important thing, right?

Steffy: Yeah. I’ll always be committed to Forrester. That’ll never change.

Ridge: So you’ll give it a chance? [ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: Yes. Yes, I– I will. It’s gonna be tough. You and I have this incredible shorthand. It’s not gonna be the same way with Brooke, but we’ll figure out a way to get through it.

Finn: Hey. Sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. I can wait outside.

Steffy: No, no, it’s fine. We were just having a discussion about Brooke, her new position here at Forrester.

Carter: An executive leadership position.

Steffy: Dad wants to focus more on design.

Finn: Oh. Okay. Wait, so what does that mean for you and your dad as co-CEOs?

Steffy: I have been asking myself and my father the same thing.

Hope: I am so proud of you! Agreeing to be part of the executive team.

Brooke: I am so excited.

Hope: Well, it means we get to work together more now. As two Logan women.

Brooke: Yes. But we do need to cooperate with Steffy.

Hope: And we will. As long as she agrees to cooperate with us.

Brooke: Honey, we can’t get off on the wrong foot. Let’s just give her some time to get used to the idea of working together, okay?

Hope: Fine. I won’t do a victory dance in front of her. As tempting as that might be.

Brooke: Aww. I do appreciate your enthusiasm and support. I really do. But I have to ask… what is going on with your feelings for Steffy’s husband?

Deacon: Okay, you sure you’re good with this, right? Working the dining room?

Tom: Whatever you need, boss. Pour water, refilling the olive oils.

Deacon: Rule number one: you gotta make sure the customers have lots of breadsticks and butter.

Tom: You gotta have something to dip in the olive oil.

Deacon: Right? Good man. Uh, hey, Tom. You’re gonna need to stow the guitar in the backpack, though. You can– Put it behind the bar. It’ll be safe. I promise.

Tom: Okay.

Deacon: Okay.

Tom: Hey, Deacon. You know, I really appreciate all the new responsibilities. I promise I won’t let you down.

Deacon: I know you won’t. I just wish all my employees were as dedicated to their job as you are.

Tom: Well, you took a chance on yours truly, as is. I’ll forever be in your debt.

Deacon: It goes both ways. Sheila and I are in your debt for getting us hitched.

Tom: You know, uh, speaking of Sheila, there’s– there’s something I’d like to talk with you about.

Carter: I put together materials for Brooke so she can hit the ground running.

Ridge: Thank you, Carter.

Carter: No problem.

Finn: You okay?

Steffy: Well, it isn’t the best day.

Finn: Anything I can do?

Steffy: You can try to change my father’s mind.

Finn: Like, where did Brooke get this idea? Is this her idea?

Steffy: Dad, you wanna– you wanna say something?

Ridge: It was my idea. With Dad and Thomas gone right now, I kind of have to focus on design more. So, I gave Brooke some of my responsibilities so I could, um–

Finn: Focus on sketching.

Ridge: Yeah. The only problem is I’ve upset my daughter. For you to think that I don’t respect you, I don’t value your opinion, that– It just… It couldn’t be further from the truth. You gotta know that. I think you, me, Brooke, we can lead this company into the future. Give it a chance. [ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: Every time I turn around, there’s another Logan. There’s no getting away from them. Like Hope wasn’t bad enough, now I have to deal with Brooke? Are you kidding?

Hope: Well, that came out of nowhere.

Brooke: Out of concern, honey. And don’t deflect. You already told me you have feelings for him.

Hope: Look, I– I– I know how it sounds, Mom, but I don’t wanna lie to you. I certainly don’t wanna lie to myself. Yes, Finn is an amazing man, and we are a lot alike.

Brooke: Come on, you can’t be attracted to Steffy’s husband. It’s only going to lead to disaster. You have to understand that. You do understand that, don’t you?

Tom: Listen, I’m not trying to get up in your business. I know how much you love her.

Deacon: But?

Tom: But, here’s the thing. See, I was thinking, to do the best possible job here, I thought I should do some research.

Deacon: What?

Tom: Online. Yeah, you see, I wanted to find out as much as possible about you and your new bride without asking you a lot of questions. So, I went to the library. You know, they’ve got computers at the library. The things I started reading about Sheila kind of freaked me out. Your lady love’s got quite a past.

Deacon: Yeah, I’m aware.

Tom: And you still married her?

Deacon: Listen, let me set your mind at ease, all right? Sheila’s done a lot of things in her past that, if she could, she’d undo them, but you know what she has done? She’s turned her life around. Sheila’s a new woman. Tell you what, let’s get back to work. Um… Yeah, let’s get back to work. I need you to get some stuff out of the, uh, supply closet. Go and do that.

Finn: I hate seeing you this upset.

Steffy: I hate being put in this situation. I’m completely blindsided by my father.

Finn: Hey, babe, but you know that’s not Ridge’s intention. He loves you.

Steffy: Yeah, and I love my dad too, but Brooke always has this, like, hold on him.

Finn: What, you think that she pressured him into–

Steffy: No, honestly, I really don’t know. I don’t know what happened. I think it was my father’s idea. But who cares? Who cares? Because at the end of the day, I’m gonna be the one who has to deal with Brooke.

Finn: True, true. But maybe if you give it a try, Brooke has the executive experience. She could be a good fit.

Steffy: Finn, are you really gonna say that to me right now?

Finn: No, that’s not– Okay– That’s not what I meant.

Steffy: No, I know what you meant. But I really don’t need my husband defending Brooke. Or Hope.

Hope: I am trying not to think about Finn, but it is not easy. He’s a good man. He’s easy on the eyes.

Brooke: Hope!

Hope: What? Mom, okay, yes, I know he’s married. And to even think about being with him would be like… It would be like–

Brooke: Be like what? You’re becoming your mother?

Hope: I did not mean it that way. I love you, Mom. And I am so, so proud of you and the woman that you are. Gosh, I don’t know, Mom. I don’t know why I am feeling this way. Why my emotions are so out of control. I mean, first with Thomas, and now with Finn. And I’m trying to understand where this is all coming from, and I don’t–

Brooke: I don’t know either, honey. Look, just– just promise me that you’re gonna stop thinking about Finn this way.

Hope: No, I know. I know you’re right, and I– I don’t want to feel this way. It’s like… something is clouding my judgment and I don’t even recognize myself anymore. So, I know that Finn would never leave Steffy. He’s committed to her and their family. And that’s the way it should be. It’s the reason why I admire him so much, is his loyalty. Finn’s deep capacity for love. Even for people who… don’t always deserve it. So, uh… their marriage, that’s between them, and I– I will… I will try not to… come between that. I won’t, Mom. I promise. I will not be that woman.

[ dramatic music ]

Steffy: I am not running Forrester Creations with Brooke. Absolutely not.

Ridge: Steffy, please. Just take a moment. Just trust me with this. You’re a born leader. I’m proud of everything that we’ve done together, but you can’t do this alone. And everything you bring to the table, everything Brooke brings to the table, is exactly what Forrester Creations needs right now.

Steffy: Making me work with Brooke would be a disaster for this company. I refuse to let that happen.

Bill: Here’s your coffee. Black with a touch of cream.

Katie: Oh, you remembered.

Bill: How could I forget? Thanks for coming back over, Katie. I’m sure you know what I want to talk to you about.

Katie: Yes, I think I do. You and Poppy and your long-lost daughter, Luna.

Poppy: Do you have a minute?

Li: I’m very busy, Penelope.

Poppy: Please.

Li: What can I do for you?

Poppy: I wanna talk to you about the paternity test.

Poppy: We left things in a very bad way after you inserted yourself in a very personal moment for Luna, Bill, and me.

Li: I thought everyone would have peace of mind with a licensed professional administering your paternity test. No mistakes.

Poppy: I’m not here to fight, or even ask for an apology. I was just hoping that now it’s been proven that Bill is Luna’s father, that we can finally move past this tension and conflict.

Bill: So, Katie, we really didn’t get a chance to talk when you were here earlier.

Katie: No, no. Poppy was pretty much glued to you. [ Bill chuckles ]

Bill: Yeah. [ Bill sighs ] So, this has been a big adjustment. Finding out that Luna was my daughter was shocking to say the least, but a very good shock. Life-changing. I’m sure it’s very shocking for you as well. I just wanna know how you feel, finding out that I have another child with another woman.

Steffy: This is ridiculous.

Ridge: It’s what’s best for the company, Steffy. I need to get back to the lifeblood of Forrester, and that is design.

Steffy: Dad, we’re a team. Father, daughter, taking this company to new heights.

Ridge: We’re still gonna do that. I’m still gonna be here. We’re gonna be together. I’m not leaving. I’m here.

Steffy: So, Brooke is the answer? Brooke’s the answer? How could you possibly think that’s a good idea?

Li: So what? You want us to make amends?

Poppy: I do. I… I hate what’s become of us. I miss you, Li. We used to be so close, and I want that again. Do you remember when I was little and, um, Mom put together that huge dinner for the entire family at the house? I grabbed a roll off the table before Grandma was served.

Li: Mom slapped your hand and scolded you in front of everyone.

Poppy: That’s right. She embarrassed and she punished me for breaking tradition and for being disrespectful. And I was only five.

Li: Yeah, I remember.

Poppy: Do you remember what happened next? I was in my room, alone, crying and hungry. And then you came in. And you kissed me on the forehead. And you held me. And you said that everything was gonna be okay. And you even snuck me a few dinner rolls. [ Li sighs ] I want my big sister back.

Li: Penelope… that was a long time ago.

Poppy: Not to me. It feels like it happened yesterday. I know that I let you down in the past, but you let me down too. You questioned my motives regarding Bill, implying I was trying to trap him, and that really hurt me. But I am willing to forgive you because I want a fresh start. This is such a wonderful time for Luna and me, and I want it to be that way for all of us.

Li: Why? Is it because you finally got what you wanted? What you’ve always wanted? A powerful, rich man?

Bill: Whatever you feel about me having a daughter with Poppy, I just want to know.

Katie: Wow. That’s a big question. I mean, I have a lot of thoughts.

Bill: What are they?

Katie: Well, I– I love Luna. She’s great.

Bill: But?

Katie: But I really don’t know Poppy at all. And I’m having a hard time understanding how she could keep the fact that you’re Luna’s father from you. You don’t find that odd?

Bill: I did at first, but Poppy explained that she was scared.

Katie: Right, because of her great love for you. I mean, I suppose that one night you shared 20 years ago must have been really something. [ Bill chuckling ]

Bill: Be honest, Katie. Are you feeling threatened?

Katie: Threatened?

Bill: That Poppy and I share a daughter.

Steffy: Brooke, so, uh, how long have you known about this?

Brooke: Not very long.

Steffy: So, you spoke to her before you spoke to me?

Ridge: I spoke to Brooke because I didn’t know if she would even be interested in it. And it turns out that she didn’t want to do it because she was concerned about how you would feel. And you know what? I kept pushing because Brooke is the best thing for the company right now.

Steffy: No, she is not. You are what’s best for this company. Think about everything we’ve accomplished together.

Ridge: And we’re gonna keep doing that. With Brooke’s help. I need to be with the design team.

Steffy: Okay, fine, fine. So, you needed to shed some responsibilities, but why wouldn’t you come to me first? You said that this is gonna be a business decision. But including Brooke? That is personal, Dad, and you know it.

Ridge: No, it’s not.

Steffy: Okay.

Carter: Steffy, Brooke’s the ideal person to fill the role. She has decades of experience, she’s run the company in the past, not to mention her invaluable contributions by way of the BeLieF formula and the bedroom line.

Hope: I wholeheartedly agree. I believe no one is more qualified to lead this company into the future than you, Mom. All you have to do is say yes.

Poppy: You refuse to be happy for me.

Li: I don’t know what you want me to say, Penelope. My opinion of you hasn’t changed. [ Poppy scoffs ] The only person I feel for is Luna. Finally, that poor girl knows who her father is.

Poppy: That poor girl?

Li: You knew Bill could be the father, yet you kept it from her. Why? I don’t know. But I bet it has more to do with you than Luna.

Poppy: Money or not, Bill is everything I’ve ever wanted in a man. He’s incredibly strong, yet sweet and tender. And the way he talks about his sons and now Luna, I’m in so much awe of the kind of father he is. I really wish that you could move on from your issues with me, but that is your call. So thank you, Li, for running the paternity test and for making this dream come true.

Katie: I don’t feel threatened by what you and Poppy have. I’m happy that you and Luna have found each other.

Bill: Well, there’s something there. I know you, and I can hear it in your voice.

Katie: This is just all very confusing for me. I have a lot of mixed feelings, and most of them I don’t feel are justifiable.

Bill: I just wanna know how you feel, Katie. You don’t have to justify anything.

Katie: It’s just that you never had a relationship with Liam and Wyatt’s mothers. You know, you never lived together as a family. That was ours. We lived together. In this house. You, me, and Will and I– I just feel like that– that part of your heart belonged to us.

Bill: It always will.

Katie: And yet, you’re here, with a brand new family, living in the house where we raised our son. See, that’s what I’m talking about. These– these feelings aren’t justifiable. I sound stupid.

Bill: You can never sound stupid. And believe me when I tell you that you and Will can never be replaced.

Katie: We had a lot of good memories in this house. In this room, we raised our child here.

Bill: Yeah, we did. He took his first steps right over there.

Katie: Oh, I know. I can’t even think about it. He was so cute, toddling around.

Bill: I haven’t forgotten. How could I? Those were very special memories.

Katie: I know.

Bill: And I will always hold them very close to my heart.

Hope: Mother, you’ve said it yourself, how you’re ready to take on a more active role here at Forrester.

Steffy: Yes, active, like relaunching Brooke’s bedroom line, not running Forrester Creations.

Hope: You deserve this position. That is why Ridge offered it to you. And please do not let Steffy’s unfair opinion sway you.

Steffy: Oh, you’re only pushing this because I threatened to cut your line.

Hope: Oh, my God, Steffy, you are so out of touch. Ridge, are you sure that you’re the co-CEO who needs less on his plate?

Steffy: Excuse me?

Ridge: All right, I didn’t call this meeting to have a fight with everybody, all right?

Hope: No, no, you called this meeting because clearly you and Carter believe and trust in my mother to help lead this company into the future. I mean, it is a clear no-brainer who should step up, but someone clearly cannot see past their disdain for anything Logan. You heard your COO. All of the huge contributions my mother has made to this company over the years.

Ridge: There’s really no reason for any of this if we don’t know your answer. What do you say? Do you accept my offer?

Bill: I know, right? I mean, it feels like yesterday that Will was running around here in his diaper.

Katie: Do you remember when he was so afraid of the dark?

Bill: How could I forget? We pitched a tent in his room and I slept in that thing for the better part of a week.

Katie: I just thought it was amazing that big bad Bill Spencer was sleeping on the floor in a tent with a five-year-old’s foot in his face.

Bill: I wouldn’t have traded it for anything.

Katie: Neither would I.

Bill: What we had was about as perfect as it could get. Until I ruined it. I will never forgive myself for what I did to you, Katie.

Katie: Bill, what happened with Brooke is so far in the past. I believe you when you tell me that you’re completely over her.

Bill: Still, it’s the biggest regret of my life hurting you like that. And I’ve done some… terrible things. Like, really bad things.

Katie: Yeah. Listen, I know you didn’t invite me over here to talk about us. You wanted to talk about Poppy and Luna and I just want you to know that I– I really just want the best for you. I mean that.

Bill: I appreciate that.

Katie: We have got to talk to Will sooner rather than later, and until we do, please, you’ve got to keep this out of the press.

Bill: Oh, yeah, no. It’ll be kept under wraps until we talk to him.

Katie: Okay, good. Gosh, I have no idea how he’s gonna react to this. I mean, it’s always just been him and his brothers, and now he has a sister.

Bill: Maybe it’s best if we just rip the bandage off. “Hey, Will, you know how you said you always wondered what it would be like to have a sister? Well, here you go.”

Katie: Oh, my gosh. I think it might need a softer touch.

Bill: I’m sure you’re right. [ cell phone pinging ] Oh, Katie, I’m sorry. We have something big brewing at Spencer. I’ve gotta–

Katie: Yeah, yeah, of course. Of course. I should be going anyway.

Bill: No, no, no. Just stay and finish your coffee. There’s no rush.

Katie: Okay.

Bill: This was really nice. Just sitting on the couch talking with you. It reminded me of old times. You know how I feel. How I will always feel. You’re my Katie. [ Katie sighing ]

Katie: Oh, Katie.

Poppy: Katie? What are you doing here?

Katie: Um…

Carter: So, what will it be, Brooke? Are you going to accept Ridge’s offer?

Ridge: You can do so much for Forrester.

Hope: You already have. Our blood runs through this company too, and we need more representation here. We can’t just let Steffy steamroll everything related to the Logans.

Steffy: Do I need to remind you that the name outside of this building is Forrester? Founded by my grandfather and my grandmother, my namesake.

Brooke: And nothing will ever change that. Nobody here wants to dishonor what Stephanie and Eric built, their legacy. In fact, what you’ve done here, Steffy, working with your father as co-CEO, it’s been quite remarkable. And your grandmother would be very proud. I wanna thank the three of you for recognizing my value here at the company. It really means a lot to me. I’m sorry that Steffy doesn’t wanna work with me. You know, I was really looking forward to combining our talents to see what we could do here at Forrester for years to come. But, obviously, she doesn’t wanna do that.

Ridge: So, you’re turning me down again?

Brooke: I think I’m just going to have to have faith that Steffy and I will work together one day quite well. We have to, right? If we don’t want to dishonor Eric and Stephanie. I’m not gonna turn you down, Ridge. In fact, I am honored to say yes. I will join you in leading this company forward.

Hope: This is wonderful news, Mom.

Carter: Congratulations, Brooke.

Brooke: Thanks, Carter. Steffy, I know you’re not thrilled about this, but it’s not what you’re thinking. Honestly. This is not Forresters versus Logans. This is Logans and Forresters united. Trust me.

Deacon: Okay, I don’t– I just don’t believe it. Come on. Hope? Really? She’s got the hots for Finn?

Brooke: The hots?

Deacon: You know what I mean. Come on, this is Hope we’re talking about, right? And Finn… is a happily married guy.

Brooke: Why do you think I’m so worried? [ Deacon sighs ]

Deacon: Oh, my God. Okay, maybe– maybe Hope just admires him, you know? I mean, who wouldn’t? Look, you know, I mean, the guy’s kind of like a superhero, you know? He’s got the body and the jaw.

Brooke: Deacon. My God, she admitted it to me. It’s eating her up inside. This isn’t something she’s proud of.

Deacon: You’re serious. Hope’s got the hots for Steffy’s husband.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Steffy: And now Hope’s involving herself. I mean, that girl’s just getting on my nerves. She is telling me that I can’t say anything to my husband about staying away from Sheila. It’s ridiculous and it’s extremely frustrating.

Finn: Hey, come here. Listen. Honey, don’t worry about Hope, okay? She’s not going to be a problem for us. [ Steffy sighs ]

Hope: Oh, I thought Ridge had called a meeting.

Steffy: Yeah, he did.

Hope: Well, do you know why?

Steffy: No, but the way things are going, I’m prepared for anything.

Hope: Okay, well, if it’s going to be a while, I can just come back.

Steffy: Uh, no, Hope, actually, I want to talk to you. Alone. It’s about my husband.

Hope: Uh, Steffy, I really don’t think that Finn is a good topic for us.

Steffy: I agree. This is why it should be the last time it comes up. Finn and I had a conversation about you, and you need to know what was said.

Hope: And why is that?

Steffy: So you understand what the boundaries are. Look, I can’t tell you how to feel about your father or Sheila. If you want to put your family in harm’s way, that’s up to you. What I do not accept is you trying to encourage my husband to feel the exact same way. He assured me that’s not going to happen, but given your attitude, you need to keep your distance from Finn. [ Hope exhales ]

Ridge: All right, what’s going on here?

Deacon: Just trying to wrap my head around the fact that Hope has feelings for Steffy’s husband.

Brooke: You have to keep this to yourself.

Deacon: I’m not going to go blabbing my kid’s business all over town.

Brooke: Okay, and I told you, there’s nothing going on with them yet. She’s just starting to have feelings for…

Both: Finn.

Deacon: Yeah.

Brooke: Right. I’m telling you this because you’re her father, and I know that she comes here and hangs out with you and with Finn.

Deacon: You want me to keep an eye on them? Mm-hmm?

Brooke: Yes, and trust me, if it were up to Steffy, she would never allow Finn in here ever again. I just need you to be aware. And yes, keep your eye out. Just be discreet.

Deacon: All right.

Brooke: Don’t tell anybody that she has an attraction for him. Nobody at all.

Hope: Steffy, don’t you think you’re overreacting just a little bit?

Steffy: Because I’m questioning your judgment?

Hope: My father’s relationship with Sheila isn’t a reason for Finn to have to stay away from me.

Steffy: Your acceptance of it is.

Hope: Well, I don’t exactly think that is fair to me or to Finn.

Steffy: Okay, Dad, do you see this? Do you see what’s going on here? This is what I’m concerned about, and why are you telling me about my husband?

Hope: I’m not doing that.

Steffy: Yes, you are, and you’ve been doing it a lot lately.

Ridge: All right, Hope, I know you mean well, but my daughter has explained why Finn can’t be around his birth mother.

Steffy: Yeah, and if you disagree with that, then you should not be around my husband. He understands that. He understands the gravity of this, and he always knows to put his family first.

Carter: Sorry, sorry, I was on a call. Maybe you need another minute.

Ridge: No, no. Everything that had to be said has been said. Let’s get back to the business at hand.

Steffy” Okay, what’s on the agenda? I didn’t even know we had this.

Hope: Is this about Hope for the Future? Because you did give my team–

Ridge: No, it’s not.

Steffy: Why didn’t we do this this morning? I mean, I have so many things to do.

Carter: I’m sure your father will move things along, right?

Ridge: We’re waiting for one more person.

Steffy: Who?

Ridge: Brooke.

Brooke: Hope is really struggling with this. We have to handle it carefully.

Deacon: Give me a little credit, will you? I know I haven’t been at this parent game as long as you have, but I care about Hope just as much.

Brooke: Of course you do. It’s just really complicated. It involves Ridge and Steffy and the company. It could affect so much.

Deacon: Hope is my main concern.

Brooke: Okay, well then, you should know everything that’s going on with her. She feels that Steffy doesn’t appreciate her husband enough and that she’s been really controlling of Finn, especially where Sheila’s concerned.

Deacon: She’s demanding that, you know, Finn stays away from Sheila.

Brooke: Yes.

Deacon: Okay, I mean, I’m just going to come out and say it. I see where Hope’s coming from.

Brooke: Okay, Deacon, that’s not really helpful.

Deacon: Okay, but I mean, Sheila is Finn’s birth mother. I mean, no amount of whining and griping is going to change that.

Brooke: Steffy is worried about her safety and her family’s safety.

Deacon: I told her a million times, she’s got nothing to worry about. All right, whatever. Okay, all right. Yeah, all I want to say is I’m just glad that Hope is keeping an open mind.

Brooke: Well, Hope has concerns about Sheila, too.

Deacon: Okay, but at least she’s giving her a chance, unlike Steffy.

Brooke: Okay, look, I– I don’t want to debate this with you and I got to get back to the office. I don’t want to regret telling you this.

Deacon: Hey, um, thank you for telling me.

Brooke: Sure. Yeah. I don’t want you to say anything to anybody, though.

Deacon: I know. Okay.

Brooke: I think I got through to her. I mean, I pray that… Hope listened to me and that she stops this and she puts an end to her feelings for Steffy’s husband.

Deacon: Hey, thank you guys so much for coming. It’s great to see you again. [ phone rings ] Hey, Hollis. [ stammers ] No, no, no, it’s okay. It’s okay. All right, don’t worry. Yeah, I’ll check the temperatures on the fridge. Yes, dear. Okay. All right. Thanks. I wonder where Sheila is. Huh. I promise, from this day forward, you shall not walk alone.

Sheila: I promise, from this day forward, you shall not walk alone.

Sheila: Hey, there’s my handsome husband.

Deacon: Hey, you know, I was just thinking about you. Yeah, I was thinking about our wedding day.


Deacon: Mine, too. Where you been?

Sheila: I just– I just completely lost track of time. So, nowhere really. What, did I miss out on something?

Deacon: No, I– you know, just about to go check the temperatures in the fridge. Unless you need me for something first?

Sheila: Daddy, I’ve got a list about a mile long.

Deacon: Well, then, I’ll make sure I’m available for later.

Sheila: Oh. [ Sheila chuckling ] You are not going to take me upstairs this very moment? Well, clearly the honeymoon’s already over.

Deacon: Come on.

Sheila: Seriously, I mean, what’s– what’s going on?

Deacon: What do you mean?

Sheila: It seems like you’ve got something on your mind.

Deacon: Just, you know, I mean, work. You know, Hollis called out. I’m gonna go check the refrigerator’s temperatures.

Sheila: Work. I guess it’s just me, then.

Deacon: You?

Sheila: I– I can’t stop thinking about what Finn said earlier.

Deacon: I mean, it was nice of him to stop by.

Sheila: Oh, to tell me that he was never going to do that again.

Deacon: Ah, don’t believe him. No one could stay away from my pizza.

Sheila: Deacon, it’s frustrating. Because I know my son cares about me. I– I know the connection that we have. He wants to know me. I– I think I could be a big part of his life and my grandson’s, if it weren’t for Steffy.

Ridge: Brooke’ll be here in a moment.

Steffy: Well, hopefully soon. I got a lot going on, Dad.

Hope: Well, since we are all here, we could discuss my proposal for a showing.

Steffy: Hope, my father already insisted on your line getting another quarter, all right? I don’t think it’s financially responsible to be throwing money at a fashion show. Am I right?

Carter: Everyone’s pulling back on production. We’re putting the spotlight back on designs.

Hope: Okay, but Hope for the Future is still one of the most prominent lines here. There should be some flexibility with the budget.

Ridge: Okay. Carter’s gonna look at it.

Steffy: Okay, what is taking so long?

Ridge: Can you just be patient for a second? She’ll be here.

Steffy: I– I’m just really confused right now. We already had a meeting this morning regarding Brooke and Brooke’s bedroom line. Like, I’m not going to be any more enthusiastic about it. Is she going to come in and make another pitch? You already know how I feel.

Ridge: Why would you say that? She doesn’t have to pitch.

Carter: Brooke’s brought a lot of success to this company, Steffy.

Brooke: Oh, sorry.

Ridge: Hey.

Brooke: I had to run out. Lost track of time.

Hope: Is everything all right?

Brooke: Hi. Yeah, just somebody I had to see. Go ahead. I’ll catch up.

Ridge: No, no, no, it’s all right. I think it’s, uh, it’s time to change gears. You’re probably wondering why I called two meetings in one day. Well, this is important. It has to do with the future of Forrester Creations.

Sheila: You know, it’s just, it’s so painful, knowing that my son could one day accept me and Steffy just keeps pulling him away from me.

Deacon: She’s his wife, babe. I mean, he has to take her feelings into account.

Sheila: No. No, he doesn’t think the same way Steffy does. He never has. He just can’t say anything to her or she’s gonna go ballistic. Look, there’s no reasoning with Steffy, Deacon. No, she is so closed off and unforgiving.

Deacon: Come on, you can’t get caught up in this again.

Sheila: It’s just so infuriating. She refuses to even acknowledge that I may have changed. And I have. You’ve seen it.

Deacon: Yes, I have. A hundred percent.

Sheila: And Finn has seen it too. Even– even Hope. Hope was willing to show me some understanding as your wife, as Finn’s mother.

Deacon: I think my kid’s a little ways off from joining the Sheila Carter fan club.

Sheila: Wait, wait, wait. Finn and Hope showed up at our wedding. They were there to support us. Why can’t Steffy do that?

Deacon: It’s not gonna happen if you try and muscle your way into their family.

Sheila: I know, I know, I know, I know. I… I was dreaming. I was dreaming, to think that I could… ever win Steffy over. I gotta tell you, I– I can’t help but wonder what my relationship would be like with my son if he were with a woman that… was just willing, you know, willing to give me a chance.

Hope: You would like to discuss the future of this company?

Ridge: Yes. And I’m realizing now that that sounded a little ominous.

Steffy: Is this a new issue or something we already discussed?

Ridge: It’s something that I think needs to be re-evaluated.

Brooke: Not Hope’s line.

Ridge: No, not– not Hope’s line at all. No, me. I need to re-evaluate me and who I am in this company. I’m sorry, I can’t take all these meetings anymore. I can’t sit around this table all day and answer phone calls. I– I need to focus on design. Especially now with Thomas and my dad out of the picture. For now.

Steffy: So, what are you saying, Dad?

Ridge: I don’t know. I love working with you and I’m so proud of what we did together and I can’t wait to see how you lead this company forward.

Hope: Ridge, are you saying that you’re stepping down as CEO?

Ridge: No. If anything, I’m stepping up. Um, but I will be here if you need me for anything. I’m– I’m here.

Steffy: Yeah, good, because we still need your leadership.

Ridge: Look around this table. Everyone is committed to making this company the best it can possibly be and that includes me. But now my commitment has to be on the creative side of things. If I don’t design anything, if we don’t have anything to sell, we don’t have a company. I know you. I know what you’re thinking right now. You think that anything I’m shedding, you can pick up and you can run with it. And you probably could. But let’s– let’s be honest with each other. You know what you have to do. You know… what’s on you professionally, personally, and I don’t want to put you in a position where you might drown. I don’t need to do that. Not if we have someone here that can help us. Someone that has worked with us at Forrester for years. All right, I took the liberty of calling our biggest investors, our biggest buyers. I talked to International. And I spoke to them about what we want to do with the bedroom line. And they were, all of them, were very, very excited. But not just about the line, but about… about the person behind the line. The icon behind the line.

Brooke: Ah, Ridge, you didn’t have to do that.

Ridge: This is not– No, I know I didn’t have to do it. But I’m glad I did because it reminded me how important you are to this company. And how missed you are. And how happy everybody would be if you just said yes.

Steffy: Say yes to what?

Ridge: I can’t let this go. I want Brooke to be on the executive team.

Steffy: What?

Ridge: Anything I’m leaving on the table, she can handle.

Steffy: Wait, Dad, you can’t– you can’t be serious. You want Brooke to be our co-CEO?

Ridge: This is not about titles. I don’t care about it. Brooke doesn’t care about it.

Hope: Well, I, for one, think it is a wonderful idea.

Carter: The clientele would love it.

Steffy: Okay, okay. Hold on. Hold on. Let’s– let’s give it a minute, okay? Did you think I would be okay with this? Why wouldn’t you come to me in private? Dad, we’re a team. Brooke and I are… Definitely aren’t. She’s not gonna listen to me. I’m not gonna listen to her. I am not running our family business, Forrester Creations, with Brooke Logan.

[ relaxing music ]

Brooke: Hi, honey.

Hope: Hi.

Brooke: Oh, I got some soup for Beth.

Hope: Oh, thank you.

Brooke: Is she sleeping?

Hope: Yes, she’s still napping, but her fever is better.

Brooke: Good.

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: And how about you?

Hope: I’m fine, yeah.

Brooke: Yeah? You seem a little flustered.

[ Hope chuckles ]

Brooke: You’re not thinking about Steffy’s husband again, are you?

Steffy: Thank you.

Ridge: I’m right about this. It’s a great PR push. Brooke back at the bedroom line.

Steffy: I just don’t think we should be putting Brooke front and center. We need to talk about this before we commit to anything.

Ridge: I’m trying to talk to you about it, but it looks like you’re on a different planet today.

Steffy: I just have a lot of things on my mind, Dad.

Ridge: Can I help?

Steffy: It’s about Hope.

[ Deacon chuckles ]

Deacon: Who wouldn’t wanna marry you? You’re the most beautiful bride to ever walk down the aisle.

Sheila: Oh, well, look at that. Not too shabby yourself. Check you out in that suit.

Deacon: I guess I clean up okay.

Sheila: Yeah, but you’re dirty in other departments, my love.

[ Deacon clears throat ]

Deacon: Hey.

Sheila: Whoa, Finn! I– I didn’t see you. We were– It is so good to see you. Look, we’re– we’re looking at wedding pictures.

Finn: Mm.

Sheila: Come on. Come take a look. You know, this is my favorite. I put a heart on it. See the hearts? It’s the one standing next to my husband and you.

Finn: Yeah, no, uh, that’s the one that was posted on the Il Giardino account. I had to explain a lot that day.

Sheila: I really didn’t even think about that, sweetheart. We were– we were just so excited and newlyweds just wanting to blast out the news. And I gotta say, it really did mean the world to us that you were there to share our special day.

Sheila: You made our wedding day all the more memorable, Finn.

Finn: Yeah, well, it’s kind of why I’m here.

Deacon: You know what, let’s, uh– let’s not overwhelm Finn with our sappy stroll down memory lane, what do you say?

Sheila: But I’m never gonna forget that. I am never gonna forget seeing you walk through that door.

Finn: Yeah, well, I wasn’t planning on being here. I was coming here to pick up food.

Sheila: Yeah, there are no coincidences in life, okay? Everything happens for a reason.

Finn: Yeah, well, either way, my presence at your wedding caused some serious trouble between Steffy and me.

Steffy: Hope is stirring things up again.

Ridge: In what way?

Steffy: I’m just so tired.

Ridge: Listen, the two of you have been knocking horns since you were kids. This is nothing new.

Steffy: I– I’m used to Hope messing with me. I learned not to let her get under my skin. But now she’s involving my husband. She’s encouraging Finn to have a relationship with Sheila. It’s like Hope and Sheila are best friends now, and that is exactly why I don’t want Hope anywhere near my husband.

Brooke: I’m right, aren’t I? Oh, God, honey, Finn’s been on your mind way too much.

Hope: I don’t know what it is.

Brooke: Just snap out of it! You can’t be thinking about Steffy’s husband like this. You do realize that, don’t you?

Hope: Mom, of course I do, and I’m trying my best to put him out of my head, but yes, I– I can’t lie to you. I– I did have a daydream about him.

Sheila: I’m sorry that Steffy reacted so negatively to you coming to our wedding.

Finn: Well, this is the one thing she asked me not to do.

Deacon: Yeah, but it wasn’t your fault. You thought we were getting hitched at the beach.

Sheila: Why can’t she just look at something through your perspective once? I mean, she’s got to know how tough all of this is on you. I mean, can’t Steffy just crack the door a little? The possibility that you might be right about me, that– that I have changed?

Finn: I think that’s asking a lot considering your past with Steffy.

Deacon: You know, Sheila’s apologized. She practically begged Steffy for forgiveness.

Sheila: I would do anything, anything to take back the pain that I’ve caused.

Deacon: You know, look, Finn, it’s one thing if Steffy doesn’t have any room in her heart for Sheila, but what’s the harm in letting you see her once in a while?

Sheila: I am not a threat to you. I– I love you and Hayes. I– I would love Steffy if she would let me.

Finn: Well, she won’t.

Deacon: You know, she just wants to be a part of your life in some way.

Finn: I just came here to tell you that I am, I’m happy that you guys are married, and I do wish you all the best. But as far as a relationship with you goes, I have to respect my wife’s wishes.

Ridge: How often do Hope and Finn get together?

Steffy: Well, I don’t think they plan it, but it is a lot. They were here in this office the other day.

Ridge: She doesn’t get to do that. She doesn’t get to try to influence Finn. He needs to learn to stay away from Sheila.

Steffy: Well, Hope has a very different opinion. She thinks that I’m wrong telling Finn to stay away from Sheila.

Ridge: She doesn’t get to do that. She doesn’t get to make that call.

Steffy: That we can agree on. That’s why I want Finn to have nothing to do with Hope.

Brooke: Oh, honey. You are dreaming about Finn?

Hope: It was a daydream that snuck up on me.

Brooke: It is reckless. It’s a recipe for disaster.

Hope: Well, I’m not going to do anything about it.

Brooke: Well, I hope not. So, what brought this on? What fueled this?

Hope: Well, I– Finn just happened to be here a little earlier.

Brooke: He was here earlier?

Hope: Yes. Beth’s fever spiked. I was really worried because we couldn’t get into the pediatrician until tomorrow, so I called Finn for advice, and then he volunteered to come over and check on her. And Mom… you should’ve seen him with her. I mean, he was just so caring and compassionate.

Brooke: Yes, of course he is, sweetheart. He’s a doctor. That’s what he does. It’s his job. It’s his nature. The way you’re talking, it’s like you’re– you’re falling for Finn. Is that what’s happening here? You really are falling for Steffy’s husband.

Deacon: Well, you gotta admit, it was kind of nice of Finn to come down and congratulate us.

Sheila: That was your takeaway from all that?

Deacon: Come on. Look, he could’ve texted. He could’ve called. But instead, he came down in person. You gotta know that you matter to your son. [ Sheila sighs ]

Sheila: I– I know that Finn loves me. He wanted to stay. He wanted to chat, have a glass of– of wine, have a moment with me, his– his mother, with us.

Deacon: Yeah, but you know Steffy would’ve freaked out. She would’ve had him packing his bags.

Sheila: Steffy, Steffy, Steffy. [ Sheila exhales ] I am so sick and tired of hearing about her and– and how she has always gotta be the one calling the shots.

Deacon: Okay, all right. But on some level, you gotta understand, right? You know, who cares, right? So she’s not gonna invite us over for brunch anytime soon. She doesn’t look like she can cook anyway.

Sheila: I hate it. Because I know if it weren’t for Steffy, I would have a future with my son and my grandson. I would have a beautiful future.

Steffy: Sheila is a vindictive sociopath. That’s all she is. She’s incapable of being anything else.

Ridge: We’re all on the same page.

Steffy: And there is no room for her in our lives.

Ridge: Of course there’s not.

Steffy: If– if Hope wants to give up any integrity she has left, then fine, she can do it. But do not bring my husband into this.

Ridge: This has nothing to do with them, really. It’s you. Your safety. The kid’s safety.

Steffy: I talked to Brooke. I told her to just please say something to her daughter. Try to find a way to get through to her.

Ridge: Well, I had that same conversation with her.

Steffy: That’s good.

Ridge: I told her I was concerned that Hope was tolerating or maybe even accepting Sheila. [ Steffy sighs ]

Finn: You’re talking about Sheila?

Ridge: Yeah, we’re talking about Sheila and you. You gotta stay away from her.

Hope: Finn has been an incredible friend to me. Especially when I’ve needed it most. I mean, we’ve had a lot of great conversations these past few weeks.

Brooke: Okay. Well, you can still talk to him over the phone about medical advice, but that is it. You can’t see him, Hope. I mean, this is crazy. You’re already teetering on the edge.

Hope: You don’t think I feel guilty about how I feel? I don’t want to feel this way, Mom. I– I know right from wrong, and the last thing I wanna do is get anywhere close to Steffy’s husband.

Brooke: I hope you mean that.

Hope: I do.

Brooke: Okay. I just don’t want you to make the same mistakes that I made.

Hope: I won’t. I just… I can’t help but feel that Steffy doesn’t appreciate him. She’s always bossing him around, telling him what to do, forbidding him from seeing his birth mother.

Brooke: Well, she has a valid point. I mean, just because your father married Sheila, it doesn’t make Sheila any less vicious.

Hope: All I am trying to say is that I can see Finn’s point of view. I understand it. Whereas Steffy, I don’t think she’s even trying to make an effort.

Brooke: Okay. Well, it’s a different circumstance. Steffy was shot, right? So you have to think about it from her side. I mean, I usually don’t agree with Steffy, but in this case, I do. I don’t think Finn should be anywhere near his mother.

Hope: Okay, but if Sheila really has changed and the kids are safe and they are protected, then why can’t we let him decide for himself? Why can’t we let him make up his own mind instead of everyone else weighing in? I mean, God, it’s just– You can’t deny that Steffy, she’s controlling him.

Brooke: Oh, honey. That’s their relationship. You need to let them deal with that. You have to stay out of it. Please tell me you understand that.

Hope: My gosh, of course I do, all right? I don’t– I don’t want to be feeling this way. I– I can’t even begin to believe that I’m even attracted to him.

Brooke: Okay, don’t say that out loud.

Hope: I can’t help it, okay? I’ve been trying to fight that feeling. It’s just, can you really blame me? He’s kind. He’s compassionate.

Brooke: Come on.

Hope: No, Mom, okay. I have a crush, right? But it’s a harmless crush. That’s all it is. It’s not going to hurt anyone, and I’m not going to let it go any further than that.

Brooke: Okay, well, you– you can’t.

Hope: I won’t. I will put a stop to these feelings before they get any more out of control.

Finn: Ridge really doesn’t mince his words, does he?

Steffy: I didn’t mean to be talking about you behind your back.

Finn: He’s your dad, right? It comes with the territory. Of course you’re gonna confide in him.

Steffy: Yeah, we’re just really concerned about Sheila. We always will be.

Finn: Honey, I know how you feel, okay? And I don’t like keeping things from you. I stopped by Il Giardino earlier. No, it’s not what you think. Sweetheart, I told Sheila that being at her wedding really upset you, and I made it clear to her that you, you are my priority. I mean, my wife and children.

Steffy: I– I appreciate that. I just wish you would avoid Sheila altogether.

Finn: I felt like I needed to talk to her face-to-face so she’d take me seriously and understand that there’s no changing my mind.

Steffy: I get that. But you have to realize when you go to see Sheila and you tell her that you need distance from her, you are sending her mixed signals.

Finn: Well, that’s never my intention.

Steffy: Babe, I– I get it. But Sheila is a psychopath. She’s a stalker. She perceives things differently.

Finn: You’re right. I guess I didn’t consider that, but I do think that I got through to her. She has to know now. She has to know how– how important you are to me. How much I love you.

Steffy: I love you too. I love you so much. And we’re so blessed. We have so many amazing things in our lives. Except Sheila. I mean, she is the source of any of our conflicts. I just wish she wasn’t in our life.

Finn: Well, she doesn’t have to be, right? Not anymore.

Steffy: Yeah, I pray that you’re right. But… I don’t think Sheila’s ever gonna wanna stay away from you. I don’t. And now Hope’s involving herself. I mean, that girl is just getting on my nerves. She is telling me that I can’t say anything to my husband about staying away from Sheila. It’s ridiculous and it’s extremely frustrating.

Finn: Hey. Come here. Listen. Honey… don’t worry about Hope, okay? She’s not gonna be a problem for us. [ Steffy sighs ]

Deacon: Well, hey there, Brooke. Fancy meeting you here. Did you come to congratulate me?

Brooke: Uh, yeah, no, I wouldn’t go that far. But I am worried about you, Deacon.

Deacon: Worried about me? Well, don’t be. I’m great. Hell, I’m better than great. I gotta tell you, it really meant the world to me that Hope came to the wedding.

Brooke: Hmm. I wasn’t thrilled about her appearance there. Actually, I haven’t been really thrilled about a lot of her decisions lately.

Deacon: What do you mean?

Brooke: Nothing.

Deacon: No, no, no. What– what were you alluding to there? Is Hope in some kind of trouble?

Brooke: No. No, it’s just… uh… Never mind.

Deacon: Brooke, if something is going on with Hope, I need to know. Please tell me. Come on. I mean, Hope’s everything to me.

Brooke: Okay, um… You can’t say a word to anybody.

Deacon: Okay, now I’m really getting concerned.

Brooke: I know. Don’t worry. It’s just maybe things have been handled and there won’t be an issue.

Deacon: What won’t be an issue?

Brooke: Our daughter is having feelings for an inappropriate man.

Deacon: Who?

Brooke: Steffy’s husband.

Deacon: Steffy’s husband?

Brooke: Don’t say it so loud. Calm down.

Deacon: Hope’s got the hots for Finn?

Brooke: Yeah, they’ve been spending a lot of time together and bonding over their mutual support of you and Sheila.

Deacon: Wait a second. They haven’t…

Brooke: No, God, no.

Deacon: Okay.

Brooke: Nothing like that.

Deacon: I mean, does Finn know how Hope feels about him?

Brooke: He thinks they’re just friends. They do spend a lot of time together. They talk to each other a lot. They confide in each other. And Hope feels that Steffy shouldn’t kick Sheila out of Finn’s life.

Deacon: Gotta agree with our daughter there.

Brooke: Okay, regardless, Hope can’t get involved in this. I mean, she knows she can’t have anything to do with Finn.

Deacon: I mean, obviously, but you’re worried thinking that Hope’s got feelings for Finn.

Brooke: Yeah.

Hope: You can’t be feeling this way. That’s Steffy’s husband.

Steffy: I’m concerned, brooke. Legitimately concerned.

Brooke: About hope? What’s there to be concerned about?

Steffy: You don’t find it a little strange? That hope is spending so much time with finn.

Hope: You really have no idea just how grateful I am that you were able to swing by and check in on beth.

Finn: No, it’s– it can be scary when your child spikes a fever like that.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. She had chills. She was achy. I was lethargic. I couldn’t believe that we couldn’t get in to see a doctor until tomorrow, so… it’s a huge relief that you were able to stop by and help out, and now my daughter is sleeping peacefully in the next room, thanks to you.

Finn: Well, maybe. I mean, it’S…

Hope: You know you can take a compliment.

Finn: Yeah, okay, fine. Yes, you’re very welcome. And look, you– never hesitate to call me about that kind of thing, you know.

Hope: Well, I appreciate it. And I appreciate you.

Poppy: I can’t believe how everything changed for me recently. Like, am I really living here?

Bill: The last time I checked.

Poppy: But how crazy, right? Everything changed for me overnight. You are luna’s father. I have a co-parent now, who insisted we move into his house. His unbelievably ginormous house.

Bill: Well, don’t get used to it. I wanna whisk you away, remember? My yacht?

Poppy: Oh, yes, that’s right. What was her name again? It was the, uh, the stella…

Bill: The stella maris. Can’t wait for you to see her.

Poppy: Me neither. It’s like I walked into a dream. I mean, to think how differently life would’ve been if you and I had met up again years earlier. We could’ve raised luna together. Here, just– the thought of it. Well, you know what? Never mind what could’ve been. The thought of what’s to come. Hm?

Katie: Oh! Sorry. Um… alfred at the guard shack let me in. I guess I should’ve called first.

Bill: Katie, hi.

Katie: So, um, I hear congratulations are in order.

Bill: Yes, katie, congratulations are definitely in order. I’m luna’s father.

Poppy: Bill and I have a daughter.

Brooke: Oh, what’s wrong with hope and finn spending time together? I mean, they’re friends. That’s what friends do.

Steffy: It’s more than that and you know it.

Brooke: I don’t know what you’re implying, steffy.

Steffy: The connection that they have? Her father is married to his birth mother, and now they’re going to weddings together, funerals together.

Brooke: Oh. Yeah, you’re right. They have a connection that way.

Steffy: Hope has zero common sense. If she did, then she wouldn’t be letting deacon sway her opinion about sheila. I– I don’t need this type of energy.

Hope: I just think that maybe steffy doesn’t appreciate what she has in finn.

Brooke: Be honest with me. More importantly, be honest with yourself. Are you having feelings for steffy’s husband?

Steffy: Hello? Are you even hearing me right now? I need your daughter to keep her feelings to herself.

Finn: I’d say her fever’s definitely broken.

Hope: That is such a relief. Thank you again, finn, for coming over like this on such short notice. I know you didn’t have to.

Finn: No, I didn’t have to. I wanted to. I could hear how concerned you were.

Hope: For the record, I am not usually such a panicky parent, but with how bad her fever was and then her being all lethargic, I just…

Finn: I would’ve panicked, too, okay? And I’m a doctor. It’s all good.

Hope: And a very good one at that, by the way. I mean, look at you, curing headaches, taking down fevers. I mean, what can’t you fix?

Finn: Well, it’s one of the benefits of working the er. I mean, eventually you will see everything. And I mean, everything.

Hope: Oh, I bet you have some stories.

Finn: Yeah, but I’m always glad when they have happy endings, like today, with beth on the mend.

Hope: No, that’s all thanks to you, dr. Finnegan.


Katie: I’m just trying to figure out why you’re just learning that luna is your daughter now. I mean, I guess I can kind of understand why you wouldn’t wanna track him down, but you’ve been reacquainted for a while.

Poppy: Yes, but I didn’t know.

Katie: Oh, right, right. But you suspected?

Bill: I asked poppy about it. Poppy started to put the timing together, but she denied it.

Katie: Yeah, I don’t get that. Why would you do that?

Bill: She was afraid.

Katie: Afraid of what?

Bill: Her love for me.

Katie: Oh.

Steffy: Did you hear me, brooke? I’m not comfortable with your daughter spending so much time with my husband.

Brooke: I think you’re taking it too far. Banning us from being friendly with finn.

Steffy: Okay, if anyone thinks sheila should be out of prison, should be banned. Period. The end. Logan or not.

Brooke: I don’t think hope was saying that. She was just saying it’s possible that sheila’s changed. Keeping an open mind isn’t like being her advocate.

Steffy: Okay. Would you keep an open mind?

Brooke: No.

Steffy: Of course not, because you know sheila is a psychopath. Look, if you wanna be friends with finn, fine. I don’t care, but not hope. Not when she’s being manipulated by deacon and sheila. I don’t want her anywhere near finn. I don’t want her influence on him. The last thing I need is hope to get into my husband’s head.

Finn: Remember to keep her hydrated. Something with electrolytes. If– if you don’t have that, just plenty of water is fine. And don’t let her overdo it the rest of the day, even if she claims that she’s now feeling back to normal.

Hope: Okay, and if the fever returns?

Finn: It shouldn’T. I mean, as long as you keep alternating those two meds like you have been. But look, if she starts getting some chills or some aches and pains again, just don’t hesitate. Give me a call. It’s fine.

Hope: No, I– I couldn’T. You’ve already done more than enough.

Finn: No, seriously. I don’t mind in the least. I’m a dad, okay? I understand how stressful it can be when your kids aren’t feeling well.

Hope: Tell me about it. I mean, when it comes to me, I barely acknowledge it, but if it’s beth or douglas, I mean, stop everything. I– I– I will happily get a migraine every day if it means that beth does not have to have that kind of fever again.

Finn: Okay, well, if either of those happen, I’m here to help.

Hope: Luckily for us. You really are a miracle worker, finn.

Finn: I– I wouldn’t say that.

Hope: I would. People call it the biggest smalltown festival in minnesota.

Katie: Wow, we’re already using the l-word, I see.

Poppy: Maybe you think it’s too soon, but–

Katie: No, no, no, I didn’t say that. I mean, I’m not judging. It’s just, um, interesting.

Poppy: Well, how could I not love bill? He’s a remarkable man. And the father of my child.

Katie: And your new roomie. I hear that you asked luna and poppy to move in.

Bill: I did.

Katie: You’re ready for that.

Bill: Wouldn’t have asked otherwise.

Katie: Well, look at you. A whole new family.

Steffy: Finn already has complicated feelings towards his birth mother. And now hope wants to get in his ear and say, you ought to give your birth mother a chance. Like, that is absolutely ridiculous.

Brooke: If she were doing that, I would agree with you. But I haven’t heard her say anything of the kind.

Steffy: She’s implying it. All this talk of how sheila’s changed.

Brooke: Maybe she’s changed. That is what she said.

Steffy: Oh, it’s a slippery slope, brooke.

Brooke: Sheila is on her best behavior right now. That is why finn and hope are reacting to her this way. But the second sheila slips up and does something stupid, of course, they’re not gonna trust her.

Steffy: So, what are we supposed to do? Just sit around and wait for something terrible to happen? So someone could get hurt? Someone could die. I mean, god forbid something happens to hope. Or beth. That is why you need to talk to your daughter. I mean, you’re her mother. She will listen to you. You just gotta get through to her. Convince hope that she is not thinking clearly.

Hope: Well, hopefully, this doesn’t get you into any kind of trouble.

Finn: Trouble?

Hope: Well, with steffy. I’m sure she probably wouldn’t be thrilled about you even being here.

Finn: Don’t worry. I mean, we all care about beth. We want beth to be okay.

Hope: And she is now. Thanks to you.

Finn: Okay. Uh, well, if you don’t have any other questions, I should, uh, probably get going.

Hope: Well, I do have one question, which is how on earth do I repay you?

Finn: No, hope, don’t be silly, come on.

Hope: No, really, finn. I mean, you’ve been so amazing and I am so grateful. And I just– I wanna know how I can make it up to you. So, seriously, anything, if you ever need anything, just please let me know, okay? You’ve shown such care and support and it just– it has meant a lot. Especially as of late with everything going on. So, thank you. And, uh, I don’t know, just continue to prove that you’re such an incredible man. So, thanks.

Finn: Okay. (Male vo) kate made progress with her mental health,

Bill: Look, katie, I was planning on telling you about poppy moving in. It wasn’t my intention to keep it a secret.

Katie: Well, you don’t owe me an explanation. I mean, it’s not really any of my business. I just– I was a bit taken aback when I walked in here the other day and found poppy and luna making themselves right at home.

Bill: Well, it– it is definitely your business. It affects will. And I realize we have to have a conversation with him explaining all of this.

Poppy: Luna’s really looking forward to meeting her brother.

Katie: Well, I’m sure he’ll be looking forward to meeting luna after he gets over the shock.

Bill: I’m– I’m still getting over the shock myself. I mean, I have a daughter. And it’s all thanks to poppy.

Brooke: I don’t know what you think I can say to hope.

Steffy: Tell her that this is insane! That she is being manipulated by sheila and deacon. And this situation could be really dangerous. She needs to think about her family. I mean, that’s what I’m doing. That’s why I don’t want hope anywhere near finn. Can you just try to talk some sense into hope? That’s all I’m asking.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Listen, this is steffy’s husband you’re talking about.

Hope: I know, and I’m not going after him, mom. I’m not. He just happens to be one of the best men I’ve ever met.

Brooke: You can’t knowingly go after steffy’s husband. And it just feels like this could get out of hand without you even intending to. Just be careful. Don’t let your heart rule your head, okay?

Hope: Okay.

Brooke: I am trying, steffy. Believe me. It’s just a little more complicated than you think.

Hope: Thank you. And, uh, I don’t know, just continue to prove that you’re such an incredible man. So, thanks.

Finn: Okay.

[ Knock on door ]

Finn: Hey.

Hope: Finn, hi.

Finn: I, um, I forgot my phone. You– you mind?

Hope: No, of course. Come in. I, um, I’m actually glad you stopped by. It gives me a chance to, well, to tell you something that I have… um… been feeling for a while now.

Finn: Okay.

Hope: I just– I need you to– to really understand just how big of an impact you have had on my life, and I don’t just mean coming here today and helping out with beth or my migraines or any of that. It’s, um… it’s much more than that. Much more.

Finn: How so?

Hope: Well, I just– I think I understand you. And I feel like you understand me too. But I also have to thank you for just showing me how a man should be.

Finn: Hm.

Hope: You know, loyal, forthright, committed, caring, compassionate, loving. And I just… I know I shouldn’T. But I can’t– I can’t help it. I… I can’t stop thinking about you. Dreaming about you and… wanting you. Please tell me you feel that way too.

Hope: What am I doing? This is wrong again. He’s steffy’s husband.

Steffy: Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Poppy: I was just hoping that we can finally move past conflict.

Hope: I have a crush.

Brooke: Well, you– you can’T.

Hope: I will put a stop to these feelings.

Ridge: I want brooke to be on the executive team.

Steffy: I’m not running our family company with brooke logan.

[ Mellow music ]

Brooke: Beth stayed home from day camp?

Hope: Yes. A few of the kids, uh, got the flu and I think she might have it too.

Brooke: Oh, no. Poor thing. Does she have a fever?

Hope: And she’s achy, so I’m keeping a very close eye on her.

Brooke: Can I go see her?

Hope: Could it wait until a little later? She just drifted off right before you got here and she didn’t sleep well last night so I just…

Brooke: You didn’t sleep well either, did you?

Hope: No. You know how it is when your child is sick. You just wanna be right there for them.

Brooke: Yes, I remember it well.

Hope: So, mom, what is the reason you came to see me?

Brooke: Uh, we didn’t really get to finish our conversation yesterday. You had to run out. And I couldn’t believe some of the things that you were confiding in me. You have feelings for finn?

Hope: I… I just think he is one of the most amazing men that I have ever met, that’s all.

Brooke: Honey, he is also steffy’s husband.

Hope: I know that, mom. I am well aware. I just– I don’t think she appreciates him in the way that he deserves to be appreciated. And honestly, I don’t think he is that happy with steffy.

Steffy: What did I just walk in on? Answer me, hope.

Finn: Hey, you. I have a free morning. I’d love to spend it with my beautiful sexy wife.

Steffy: Well, I’d love that too, but duty calls, I’m afraid.

Finn: Hm. You have to go to the office?

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, I have, um, back to back meetings.

Finn: Hm.

Steffy: Tonight.

Finn: Tonight.

Steffy: Look, there is something I do wanna talk about quickly.

Finn: Okay, what’s that?

Steffy: I wanna clarify our discussion yesterday. About hope.

Carter: Okay, I’ll get the revised budget figures for you and steffy right away.

Ridge: What about hope for the future? Any news on that?

Carter: No, there’s still time for a turnaround.

Ridge: All right, is hope in? I’d love to talk to her about it.

Carter: I haven’t seen her, but if and when I do, I’ll let her know you’re looking for her.

Ridge: Thank you.

Carter: You know, you’re pretty fired up today, ridge. Juggling different things. I gotta say, you’re not acting like a guy who wants to concentrate more on designing. Having second thoughts?

Ridge: No, no, my plan is still my plan. With a very particular caveat.

Carter: This caveat you mentioned?

Ridge: I still wanna step away from the administrative stuff and do more of design, but I don’t want all that to land on steffy.

Carter: Okay, in the meantime, if you need me to step up.

Ridge: You’ve got enough to do already. Somebody different.

Carter: Okay, so are you gonna bring in someone new to work with you and steffy?

Ridge: Not new. Someone who’s been with this company almost as long as I have.

Carter: Brooke?

Ridge: Is there anyone better?

Carter: Brooke’s a great choice. Have you run it by her?

Ridge: Yeah. And she turned me down.

Carter: Hm.

Steffy: I really don’t wanna keep having this conversation. You know where I stand when it comes to hope.

Finn: Yeah, I do. And I respect your feelings.

Steffy: I know that. And you’re a giving, generous, trusting guy.

Finn: You think she’s manipulating me?

Steffy: I mean, she’s used men in the past. Thomas. Liam.

Finn: And now me.

Steffy: All I’m saying is hope is really confused right now.

Finn: Hm.

Steffy: So, the less time you spend with hope, the better.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: Love you.

Finn: I love you too.

Brooke: Finn is steffy’s husband. You can’t be talking or feeling this way.

Hope: How can I help it? I mean, he’s brought so much into my life. We relate on this whole other level. He’s easy to talk to and…

Brooke: Well, that’s good. That’s wonderful. That you have somebody you can confide in. A friend that you can open up to. But that’s all it is, honey. You can’t knowingly go after steffy’s husband.

Hope: And I would never do that, nor would I want to, because I’m not a homewrecker.

Brooke: Good. I hope you wouldn’t because there are children involved. And it just feels like this could get out of hand without you even intending to. And I don’t want that to happen to you, sweetheart. Okay? Now, I gotta run, because ridge wants to talk to me for some reason. So, I’m gonna go. But just be careful. Don’t let your heart rule your head, okay?

Hope: Okay. I’m gonna come back and check on beth later.

Beth: Mama. I feel worse.

Hope: Oh, my sweetie.

Beth: I’m more achy and super hot.

Hope: Oh, honey. I think it’s time we go to the doctor.

Beth: I don’t feel good enough to go.

Hope: Come here.

The power of a skin filler

Hope: Here you go, honey. Just relax. Oh, sweetie, you’re shivering.

Beth: I’m achy, too.

Hope: I know, honey. I’m sorry.

Beth: What’s wrong with me?

Hope: Well, I think you might have the flu. You– hi. Yes. Yes. Okay. So, no availability until tomorrow. Okay. All right. Yes. Thank you. So, the doctor can’t see you until tomorrow. But don’t worry. Mommy has an idea. Hi, finn. Yes, it’s– it’s me. I was actually hoping to get some of your advice.

Finn: What’s, uh, what’s up?

Hope: Well, it’s beth. Uh, she has a fever, chills, she’s achy, and the doctor can’t see her until tomorrow and I’m a little worried.

Finn: Um, are you– are you alone?

Hope: Yes, my mom was here a little earlier, but I don’t know, do you think it can wait? Or should I go to urgent care?

Finn: No, no, no, look, don’t– don’t worry about it. I’ll, um, I can come over.

Hope: Finn, you don’t have to do that.

Finn: No, it’s– it’s fine. I insist. I’ll leave right now. Won’t be long.

Hope: Thank you.

Finn: Okay.

Hope: All right, sweetie, you don’t have to worry. Finn is on his way.

Carter: Perfect.

Ridge: I mean this is good. We can do better on this one. Thank you. All right. I guess I put the cart before the horse a little that time.

Carter: That’s exactly what you did. Instead of going to steffy first and floating the idea of brooke coming on board, you just–

Ridge: All right.

Carter: Yeah. Well?

Ridge: Well, what? Well, the truth is, I knew steffy was gonna have a problem with brooke doing this, so I thought I’d ask her first. If she agreed, I figured they would just, you know, they’d work through it and do what’s best for the company. Hey, how are you? We were just talking about you.

Brooke: All good things, I hope.

Ridge: Of course.

Carter: Yeah, ridge was telling me how you nixed his offer to take on more slack so he can do his thing with couture.

Brooke: Oh, yes, I’m afraid so. Although, I hope he doesn’t feel like I deserted him in his time of need.

Ridge: No, he doesn’t feel that at all. And he also thinks that, um, he has not given up completely on you.

Brooke: Oh, ridge.

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: Hello, everyone. Brooke, what are you doing here?

Finn: Hey, beth. How you doing? How you feeling?

Beth: Not so good.

Finn: Not so good? You have, um, you have some chills, some body aches. Yeah? Can I– can I touch your forehead? Let’s see here. Oh, yeah, you are– you are burning up. Definitely sounds like the flu.

Beth: That’s what mommy says.

Finn: Did she? Well, your mom is a smart lady. But, look, I brought over some medicine that’ll get you feeling better in no time. Does that sound good? Okay, good.

I thought I was sleeping ok…

Finn: There, see, warrior. You’re very brave, beth.

Beth: Didn’t hurt even a little.

Finn: Hey.

Hope: Yeah, I told you dr. Finn knows what he’s doing. So, uh, do you think it will help?

Finn: Yeah, I mean, it’s not always the remedy, but in her case, I think the vitamins and the mild steroid will lessen the symptoms pretty quickly. But for you, the big question is… which one of these?

Beth: Hm… that one.

Finn: This one right here? Good call. That’s my favorite, too. But you need to do me a favor, okay, beth? I need you to drink plenty of water and the juice that your mom has been giving you. Let’s put this right here. And take your medicine and get plenty of rest, okay? I need you to rest your body.

Beth: I will.

Finn: Okay, good. You do your part and I’ll do my part, and we’ll have you back to your old self in no time.

Hope: There you go, sweetie.

Ridge: I asked brooke to join me here.

Brooke: Only he still hasn’t told me why.

Carter: Does this have to do with what we were just talking about?

Sheila: Which was what, exactly?

Ridge: This is about the impact that brooke has had on forrester creations. We need to try to capitalize on that again.

Brooke: What do you mean?

Steffy: Capitalize how?

Ridge: Well, the bedroom line. We need to highlight brooke the way that we used to when we first started it, right? You– you need to create a buzz that no one else can.

Steffy: Okay, highlight how? What are you suggesting?

Ridge: Photo shoots. Do– do a campaign with you front and center.

Brooke: Uh, uh, ridge, I don’t know about this.

Ridge: Well, I know about it. More than that, I know what we need to get to. We need to get back to this.

Brooke: So that’s what you’ve been thinking about at work.

Ridge: Yeah, sometimes. A lot. But it’s about you. You like being in front of the camera, right?

Brooke: Yes, but that was a long time ago. I’m a grandmother now.

Carter: You’re not like any grandmother I know.

Ridge: Easy, carter. Geez. But he’s right. You’re not like any grandmother anybody knows. Because you’re timeless, you’re ageless, you’re sexy and alluring and as provocative as you were the first day I met you. Maybe more so. So what do you think? It’s time. Step out of the shadows, onto the runway, in front of the cameras, and give the people what they want. Make the bedroom line yours again.

Hope: Looks like your fever’s starting to go down.

Finn: You feeling better, kiddo?

Beth: Uh-huh. I’m not as shaky and achy.

Finn: Okay, well that’s awesome. That means you are on the road to recovery.

Hope: Why don’t you drink a little more juice, okay?

Finn: Yeah. You’re a star patient. Just keep it up, okay?

Beth: I will.

Finn: You promise? Pinky promise? Okay, good.

Hope: You know what? I think it might be time for bed again so you can get some rest.

Finn: Hm, good idea, mom. Want me to airlift you there?

Beth: Yes, please.

Finn: Yes? All right. Come on. Let’s get you back into bed.

Beth: Thank you, dr. Finn. You’re the best.

Finn: Oh. No problem. Anytime. ()

Ridge: Hey. You said you wanted to be more involved in the company. This is a perfect way to do it.

Brooke: I do. But I’m too old.

Ridge: You got to– stop saying that. It’s ridiculous. You’re very lucky there’s people in this room or I would show you how sexy I think you are. We need to shine some light on the bedroom line and you’re the one to do it.

Carter: Sounds like you’ve given this a lot of thought, ridge.

Ridge: I have. And not just this. I– I– I put together a whole retrospective of you and your best moments here at forrester. You wanna see it?

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Can you get the lights, please?

[ Crowd cheering ]

Ridge: Magic. That’s what you bring to the bedroom line. Carter, can you get the lights, please? See, people can’t take their eyes off of you. I can’t take my eyes off of you. You’re just hitting your stride. You have so much more to give to forrester, to the fashion world. So, what do you say?

Brooke: I still have a lot of questions about how this will work. But, yes. I will do it.

Ridge: Yes?

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: I’m so happy. Thank you.

Brooke: Yes. Thank you.

Hope: Oh, I’m gonna just check on beth again real fast, but, um, thank you again for coming.

Finn: Oh, yes. Um, my pleasure.

Hope: Tea, on the house.

Steffy: Brooke, isn’t there somewhere you need to be?

Brooke: Are you trying to get rid of me?

Steffy: No. No, it’s just my father and carter, they had another meeting, so I assumed that you’D…

Brooke: So I guess I should be on my way as well. Look, steffy, I know you’re not thrilled about your father’s idea of rebooting the bedroom line.

Steffy: Honestly, no, but I am a professional and I will make the best decisions for this company.

Brooke: And threatening to kill hope for the future wasn’t one of them.

Steffy: Look, I am more concerned about hope than her line. Specifically, her spending so much time with my husband.

Finn: How’s the patient?

Hope: Sleeping peacefully, thank goodness. And I took her temperature and her fever is definitely starting to go down.

Finn: Good. When she wakes up, she’ll be back to her old self.

Hope: Yeah, I have to admit, I was starting to get worried. Just how bad she was feeling.

Finn: That’s why the doctor came over.

Hope: Thank you. I know I keep thanking you a lot, but just seeing you with beth and how much better you made her feel and how much better you made her mother feel, it just– it’s just a reminder of what an incredible man you are.

Brooke: Hope, you didn’t answer my question. Are you having feelings for finn?

Hope: Where is this coming from? All I said is that finn is a great guy.

Brooke: It’s the way you said it. I can hear it in your voice. Honey, just be honest with me. Are you falling for steffy’s husband?

Steffy: Hope is incredibly toxic. The fact that she’s trying to support you having a relationship with sheila just shows you how delusional hope is. And sheila’s only playing nice because she married her father.

Finn: Look, I– honey, I understand your frustration, but I don’t– I don’t think that’s the way hope feels. And I have to say, she has been very kind to me.

Steffy: You have to trust me, finn. I’m more experienced with hope than you are. You need to keep your distance from hope.

Liam: Well, tracey, this is– this is so appreciated. You– you probably just saved us from a pr nightmare, so.

Tracey: Just doing what you hired me for. Mitigating any unwanted surprises.

Bill: Yeah, we don’t want any of those at spencer. Although sometimes they can be the best part of life. Unexpected surprises.

Poppy: Bill was so happy to learn that luna’s his daughter and he’s fully embraced her into his life and the two of us into his home.

Luna: I know it’s a lot to take in.

Poppy: Katie, I really value and respect your opinion. Look, you may not be married to bill anymore, but you’re still an important person in his life. It would really mean a lot if you could give my daughter and me your blessing.

Liam: Thank you so much again, tracey. We’ll be in touch. And as always, validation’s on him. Take care.

Bill: What?

Liam: What? What was that? You– you– you– talk to me, okay? We’re in a meeting and you’re talking all this about unexpected surprises. You wait until it’s just you and me. Talk to me.

Bill: About what?

Liam: Oh, that’s cute. That’s so cute. Uh, luna.

Bill: All right, look. What do you want me to say? You know how I feel about her.

Liam: Well, I know how you felt about her the last time we did this, but I don’t know. Maybe– maybe the euphoria has subsided a little bit. You’ve gotten some perspective. How do you feel now about poppy giving you a daughter?

Katie: I don’t really know you all that well, poppy, but I think very highly of luna. She’s been a great addition to forrester and you’ve become very important to my nephew.

Poppy: Well, you’ve all made a very profound impact on my daughter.

Katie: Not as big an impact as you’ve made on bill, apparently. Bill and I haven’t had a chance to discuss this, so I was hoping he would be here. And this is big, surprising news. And it doesn’t just affect your lives, but… it affects my son will’s life as well.

Finn: I love you for being so protective. And look, I hear your concerns with hope. All right, you’re right, I– I don’t know the logans as well as you do.

Steffy: Thank you.

Finn: And seriously, there is nothing you need to worry about when it comes to hope and me.

Brooke: I am not judging you or accusing you of anything.

Hope: Well it certainly feels like it.

Brooke: Please, honey, just tell me. Are you developing feelings for finn?

[ Hope sighs ]

Hope: Okay, you want the truth, mom? Yes, I am starting to… care more about finn.

Brooke: Huh.

Did you know…

Bill: When I first looked at the paternity test results, it was like time stood still. I mean, I was speechless.

Liam: Well, I mean, you speechless, that’s– that’s saying something.

Bill: I know, right?

Luna: What? What is it? That’s– that’s two stripes. That means that– that means you’re my dad. I can’t believe it.

Poppy: It’s true. You are luna’s father. Oh, baby. You finally got your answer. Bill is your father.

Bill: Well, uh, I guess it’s time we have our first official family hug.

Liam: What a– what a life-changing moment.

Bill: Truly. And I feel so blessed. You know, my greatest joy in life, well, other than hostile takeovers, crushing the competition, making mounds of money…

Liam: Sure.

Bill: …Are my kids. You, wyatt and will.

Liam: And now, you’ve got a daughter.

Bill: And you have a sister.

Liam: Ah.

[ Both chuckling ]

Luna: You know, I’m still trying to process all of this, too. It’s always just been my mom and me, and now I finally have a dad and a whole extended family, and I can’t believe I have brothers. And I can’t wait to meet will, and, um, I’m sure it’ll be a little bit awkward in the beginning, but I think with time it’ll– it’ll be okay.

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Luna: Oh, it’s rj. Um, I really should get going. He’s still trying to wrap his head around the fact that bill’s my dad, too, so bye.

Katie: Bye.

Katie: You have a lovely daughter.

Poppy: Thank you. I mean, like we said, this is a lot to take in, and I’m sure that you and bill have a lot to discuss, but… as I said, he isn’t home right now. I can let him know you stopped by.

Katie: I’m sorry, are you telling me to leave?

Steffy: Hope doesn’t worry me. She bothers me. She’s passing judgment on my feelings about your relationship with sheila, the woman who terrorized us.

Finn: Well, I think hope, she’s just trying to help.

Steffy: She can’t even help herself. I mean, her marriage ended, thomas and douglas left, hope for the future is sinking, her father married a psychopath, and you think that she has enough on her plate for you? You don’t really think this is coming from a place of jealousy or insecurity, right?

Finn: No, I don’T. I don’T.

Steffy: I do feel very uncomfortable with you hanging around hope, especially with her behavior lately. I mean, you see the way she used thomas to cope with her divorce from liam, and now she sees the good in sheila, and she supports you having a relationship with her? Hope’s lost, and when she’s lost, she’s reckless.

Brooke: You’re starting to care about finn.

Hope: Well, how can I not? He’s become a very, very good friend to me, and look at how he is with people. He’s compassionate, he’s caring, he wants the best for people, even when it’s difficult.

Brooke: Like with sheila?

Hope: Exactly, like with sheila. I mean, what kind of man has that capacity for understanding, for forgiveness? I mean, it makes sense why he’s such an amazing doctor. I mean, he’s– he’s even helped me recently.

Brooke: Helped you? How? Are you a patient of finn’s? Hope?

Upset stomach

Liam: Well, I am really happy for you, because I can see how captivated you are, not just with luna, but with her mother, poppy.

Bill: She is something else.

Liam: Yeah, she better be something else. If you had one night together 20 years ago, and there’s still this– this spark.

Bill: No, it’s more than a spark, liam. It’s like we are frozen in time. I mean, I– I look at poppy and I still see that same young woman that just took my breath away at that music festival. What?

Liam: Can I tell you how much it delights me to picture you at a music festival? Did you use lights?

Bill: Don’t do it. Don’t do it, I will choke you with your own tie.

Liam: Fair enough.

Bill: Now, can we just be serious for a minute? You understand that poppy didn’t just give me memories. She gave me a daughter that night. It’s incredible.

Liam: I know. Speaking of, there is another woman in la who gave you a child. Have you, um, have you spoken to katie at all about luna and poppy?

Poppy: Katie, I would never ask you to leave. You’re a part of this family too.

Katie: Glad to hear it.

Poppy: I don’t want there to be tension between us. I mean, our kids are siblings. We’re family now. And I know it’s gonna take some getting used to. This used to be your home, but… now it’s mine. I know there’s gonna be an adjustment, but I truly hope to become good friends. Now as you can imagine, I do have a million things to do around here. I mean, this place could definitely use a woman’s touch. And honestly, I just assumed that you’d wanna be on your way since bill isn’t here. But as I said, I will let him know that you stopped by. Although, I’m certain that he’ll just wanna be alone with luna and me.

Steffy: Hope has zero self-awareness. You saw it with my brother when she lost liam. And now she lost thomas and douglas. And she doesn’t wanna lose her dad. So what does she do?

Finn: She becomes accepting of sheila.

Steffy: Hope’s standards and beliefs, they sway like the wind. I mean, one minute she hates sheila, and the next she’s trying to convince you to go to her wedding.

Finn: Okay, look, you may have a point, but would that not be a great reason to feel for hope instead of criticizing her? Look, maybe she needs our help.

Brooke: You’ve been seeing finn as a patient?

Hope: Well, no, not officially.

Brooke: Are you sick?

Hope: No, I just– I’ve been getting these headaches. I think they’re migraines.

Brooke: Oh, I had no idea.

Hope: Yeah, I was with finn when one of them came on and he thinks it is due to stress.

Brooke: So, did he prescribe you something?

Hope: No, but, uh… let’s just say finn has healing hands.


Bill: Thank you.

Liam: I’m only asking if you’ve talked to katie about– about luna and poppy because it affects will.

Bill: Yes, I realize that. And no, I haven’t talked to katie yet.

Liam: Dad.

Bill: Will you relax? I’ve been very wrapped up in luna and poppy and I just– I haven’t had a chance to talk to katie. I’ll talk to her.

Katie: I’m sure that you, bill and luna, have a lot to make up for.

Poppy: We do.

Katie: But you have to understand that for the sake of my son, it’s important that bill and I discuss this. It’s a priority.

Poppy: Yes, and– and I agree. It’s important for bill and you to discuss how to approach this with will. I just didn’t want you to get your hopes up that it would happen today.

Katie: Because bill will be busy with you.

Poppy: I am certain that bill can’t wait to be alone with luna and me. And just like you said, we have a lot of time to make up for. And I’m really eager to do that.

Katie: I imagine you are.

Steffy: You wanna help hope?

Finn: Look, she’s been stressed out lately.

Steffy: And how do you know that?

Finn: She’s opened up to me a little bit.

Steffy: What did she say?

Finn: Well, basically everything you just said. You’re right, she’s– she’s been having a hard time. And look, I’m– I’m not gonna pretend to even remotely understand the dynamics, but… the problems you have with each other, it didn’t start with you two. All right, it was brooke and stephanie and then brooke and your mom, and like… honey, the rivalry between your two families started before you guys were even born. I mean, who’s next? Kelly and beth?

Steffy: What, no.

Finn: Well, it could be. If we’re not careful, I mean, that’s the cycle, right? That’s why I’m lobbying for some peace and harmony between you two. I mean… honey, we are one big, extended family. And we have a lot to be grateful for. That’s what we need to focus on. And look, you don’t need to worry about hope, okay? She is not influencing me. Okay?

Steffy: Okay.

Brooke: Finn has healing hands?

Hope: Well–

Brooke: How did you know that, hope?

Hope: He gave me a massage.

Brooke: He what?

Hope: Well, it was, you know, like temples, sinuses, like this little squishy thing right here. It was, uh, pressure point therapy for my migraines. And it was like the minute his hands touched me, I felt such relief. I mean, it was amazing.

Brooke: Oh, my god.

Hope: No, no, it’s not like that, mom. It’s not like that, okay? We are just very good friends. And I– I don’t want to see him being controlled or bossed around by steffy. I… I feel bad for him, mom.

Brooke: Their relationship is their business, okay?

Hope: Okay, but should I just stand by as a friend is getting taken advantage of? I mean, he’s being undervalued by the one person who is supposed to love him the most. And I… I’m not even sure steffy really understands him.

Brooke: And you do.

Hope: You know, I– I think I do. Finn trusts me. He confides in me.

Brooke: He confides in you?

Hope: Well, yeah. I mean, we have a lot in common. We’re like… two kindred spirits. Especially now that my dad has married his mom.

Brooke: Okay, listen. This is steffy’s husband you’re talking about.

Hope: I know. I know and I’m not going after him, mom. I’m not. He just… happens to be one of the best men I’ve ever met.

Steffy: What did I just walk in on? Tell me, hope.

Eric: Now, brooke, I agree with ridge. I think it’s high time that you should take a more active role in leading the company forward.

Brooke: Well, thank you, eric. I was very touched by the suggestion.

Eric: Good.

Katie: Well, ridge wouldn’t have said anything if he wasn’t serious.

Brooke: Oh, he was.

Eric: The logans and the forresters make a formidable team.

Brooke: Yes. And I wanna contribute. I do. I just don’t wanna create any more tension with steffy.

Eric: Oh, yeah.

Donna: Well, what do you think, katie? You know, from a pr standpoint, what should brooke do first?

Katie: Oh, I’m sorry, what?

[ Donna chuckling ]

Donna: Are you okay? You seem a little distracted.

Katie: I just… found out something that is… shocking.

Eric: What? Is it will? Is he okay?

Katie: Oh, yeah, no, he’s fine. Although I don’t know how he’s gonna take the news. Apparently he has a new half-sister.

Donna: Half-sister?

Eric: What, bill has a daughter?

[ Liam chuckling ]

Liam: So, my dad…

[ Bill chuckling ] Is…

Luna: My dad.

Liam: I have a sister. You gave me a– I have a sister. I have a sister.

Bill: Liam and I discussed the possibility before.

Liam: It’s not a possibility anymore. It’s– it’S… a reality.

Bill: Yes, it is. We have the test results to prove it.

[ Liam chuckling ]

Liam: Wow.

Luna: That’s a good wow, I hope?

Poppy: Okay, we understand it is a lot to process and you might need some time.

Bill: But we’re hoping you’re going to be as happy about this as we are.

Liam: There’s only one thing to say. Hey, luna. Welcome to the family.

[ All chuckling ]

Bill: That’s my boy.

Brooke: Bill. Your bill has a daughter?

Donna: Since when?

Katie: For more than 20 years. Only he just found out today.

Eric: Well, that’s not exactly uncharted territory for bill spencer, is it?

Brooke: Well, that’s true. He met liam and wyatt when they were adults.

Donna: Okay, so bill met her today?

Katie: Well, no, not exactly. He’s known her for quite a while. Her mother, too.

Brooke: Who?

Katie: Luna. Luna is bill’s daughter.

Liam: Can I say, you know, I had a feeling when he texted me. Just– I just knew. I knew.

[ Bill chuckling ]

Poppy: Well, I know it’s a lot to process, but the test was conclusive and luna is, in fact, bill’s daughter and your little sister.

Liam: Can I tell you something funny about this? I have been telling this guy for god knows how long now how great it is to be a girl dad. And now he gets to find out for himself, if he can recover. Uh, and lucky me, I get a little sister to spoil.

Luna: No, no, I’m the lucky one. I mean, bill’s told me all about his family and how much you all mean to him. And it’s crazy that I’m gonna be a part of it.

Bill: You already are.

Finn: Hope and i were just talking.

Steffy: I know what you’re doing. You’re becoming a bad influence on finn.

Hope: A bad influence? I mean, what exactly do you mean by that?

Steffy: You need to back off. You stay away from my husband.

Bother the bugs,

not your family.

Brooke: Bill is luna’s father?

Katie: I mean, I haven’t talked to bill. I’m just getting my information from rj.

Eric: And he was texting with luna and that’s how you found out?

Katie: Yes, during the paternity test and then after they got the results.

Brooke: Well, this is going to be quite an adjustment for bill. And for you too.

Katie: I guess it doesn’t really involve me.

Donna: What did you say earlier when you spoke about bill, that… he doesn’t answer to you?

Eric: But you and bill are gonna have to explain this to will.

Donna: How do you feel about that? I mean, how do you feel about all of this?

Brooke: You did deny wanting to have another chance with bill. But now that you know this, does it change things? Poppy isn’t just somebody that bill is dating. They have a daughter together. And I could imagine that would change a lot.

Liam: So, luna, this has got to be insane for you, right?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, it’s a bit overwhelming, but it’s wonderful. This is more than I could have ever wished for, you know? Finally finding my father and gaining a whole new family out of it.

Poppy: And it has to be a little wild for you too, liam.

Liam: Yeah, but with him, I mean, I’ve just learned to expect the unexpected.

Bill: Yeah, I do tend to be full of surprises, but this is one of the best surprises I’ve ever gotten.

Liam: Can I tell you what’s surprising to me?

Bill: What?

Liam: You this happy. Look at that big dumb smile on your face. Look at it.

Bill: Well, I’ve got a lot to be happy about.

Liam: You see, one thing you may not know about this gentleman right here is that usually he’s pretty tight-lipped about his love life, which means the task of dragging it out of him falls on me. “Dad, how’s it going?” “Dad, how are you feeling?” Not so lately. The guy will not shut up about you, which I think means that he’s crazy for you.

Poppy: Well, the feeling is very mutual, and I love your father even more now that we share a child together.

Finn: There’s no reason to be concerned about our friendship.

Steffy: I’m concerned about the ideas that she’s putting in your head, encouraging you to have a relationship with sheila.

Hope: Okay, finn is his own person. He can make up his own mind about his birth mother. He doesn’t need us telling him how to feel.

Steffy: I can’t believe you’re buying into the whole sheila’s changed bit. Are you kidding me?

Hope: Okay, well, I just happen to see the good in people and believe that they can change if they want to, and I think finn feels the same.

Steffy: My point exactly. Look, you can handle sheila any way you want. You just stay away from my husband. Leave him out of it.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. I mean, steffy, there’s nothing to worry about. But, look, uh… I don’t wanna get finn in any more trouble, so I am going to go and let you two work this out. But, uh, before I do, a little word of advice. Maybe focus on finn. You’re lucky to have such a compassionate husband.

Finn: Hey, hey. What was that all about? New mr. Clean ultra foamy magic eraser?

Katie: I don’t really know poppy, but luna is a lovely young woman.

Eric: Yeah, she is. We all agree on that.

Katie: So, you haven’t talked to rj at all, have you?

Brooke: No. I didn’t know any of this was happening.

Donna: I’m sure he’s gonna wanna talk to you all about it.

Brooke: Well, he has come to me about luna’s family situation before.

Katie: I wish bill had been as open with me. I have a few questions I need to ask.

> Brooke: You’re gonna go see him?

Katie: Yeah. I need to talk to him about the newest addition to his life, and to will’S.

Poppy: So, should I tell him, or do you want to?

Bill: Tell him what– oh. Uh… I asked poppy and luna to move in with me.

Liam: Are you serious?

Bill: Yeah.

Poppy: Yes, he is the most wonderful and generous man.

Liam: You know why? Because he’s happy. He’s generous when he’s happy.

Bill: How could I not be? With these two incredible women in my life.

Finn: Well, I think that we should get to the bottom of what’s really bothering you.

Hope: Oh, I don’t think– we don’t have to do that.

Finn: You know, I’m here to help you, hope. So, if you can… just tell me exactly how you’re feeling.

Brooke: Oh, good. I was hoping you’d be here.

Hope: What’s up?

Brooke: I have news. About luna.

Hope: Okay.

Brooke: I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but… poppy never told luna who her father was until today.

Hope: And?

[ Brooke sighs ]

Brooke: It’s bill.

Hope: Spencer.

Brooke: Yeah. They took a paternity test, and it turns out luna is his daughter. Now, I don’t think they’re going public with it right away, so just keep it quiet. But I wanted to tell you, because you’re close and you work with her. Honey? Are you even listening? What’s going on? Oh, no. I’m– I’M… good. I’m, uh, happy for luna.

Brooke: Okay. Well, you seem a bit distracted. What is it?

[ Hope sighs ] I just– I can’T… help it, I’m– I’M… I’m thinking about finn.

Brooke: Finn?

Hope: Yeah. I don’t know. I worry about him. I just… feel like he doesn’t have much of a voice in his marriage.

Finn: Tell me. What’s going on?

Steffy: We agreed not to let anything come between us, finn. No more arguing about sheila.

Finn: Okay, but… what’s that got to do with hope?

Steffy: Hope keeps bringing it up. She won’t let it go.

Finn: Okay, I mean, I can see why it might look that way. Look, maybe we all could have discussed it if you’d been a little more chill.

Steffy: Chill?

Finn: Yeah. I mean, there’s no reason to be hard on hope.

Steffy: I didn’t know I was being hard on her. Look, hope always acts like she’s, like, this sweet, innocent girl. That she’s some kind of, like, victim and everything that’s gone wrong in her life is because of me. And that’s not true. So you need to stop and think, okay? Before ever defending hope again.

[ Steffy sighs ] A mystery!

Poppy: Sorry that bill and liam had to leave.

Luna: You know, I should probably head back to work, too.

Poppy: No! I mean, you can stay, can’t you? I mean, this is such an extraordinary day, and I wanna be able to share it with you. I’m so happy for you, sweetheart.

Luna: I’m so happy for you too, mom. For both of us.

Poppy: Well, call me biased, but I think that bill has the most to celebrate because he just found out that he has the most incredible daughter in the world.

Luna: Thank you, mom. For everything.

Poppy: I hope this new life is all that you want it to be.

Luna: Well, I honestly just wanted to know who my dad was, and this, all of this, is just… icing on the cake.

Poppy: No, honey. This is what you deserve. I mean, this is what you’ve waited your whole life for. It’s a dream come true. I mean, look at us. Bill spencer is your father. We’re living in the spencer estate. Life couldn’t be better.

[ Door slams ]

Katie: So I guess the news went over well.

Luna: Katie, you heard?

Katie: Yeah, yeah. You’re bill’s daughter.

Poppy: Did he call you?

Katie: No, no. I was with rj when luna texted. I was hoping he would be here.

Luna: He and liam just had a business meeting, so.

Katie: Well… I guess congratulations are in order. Rj told me how much this means to you.

Luna: Yeah. It’s honestly a little bit overwhelming. I’ve had this, like, question mark hanging over my head my entire life, and… now all of my questions have been answered, so.

Katie: Yeah, you’re… bill’s daughter and my son’s half-sister.

Luna: Yes, yes. I cannot wait to meet will and get to know him.

Katie: Did I hear correctly? You two are living here now?

Poppy: Oh, yes. Well, bill insisted. I mean, we’ve lost so much time already, and here we can be a family right away.

Katie: Family is very important to bill.

Poppy: It’s beautiful. Look, liam was just here.

Luna: Yeah, liam was so welcoming.

Poppy: Yeah, he’s such a great guy. He gave us his blessing. And, katie… I’m really hoping that you’ll be able to give us your blessing, too.

Steffy: Babe, you know I love you. And you’re kind. And you care about people. But I…

Finn: Aww. Yes, I do. But I care about you and the kids more than anyone.

Steffy: I know that. It’s just sometimes I feel as though you’re a little… too caring. This instinct to help everyone do whatever is asked of you.

Finn: Okay. But you have an issue with that?

Steffy: No, I don’t have an issue with you. But I do have an issue with hope and sheila trying to manipulate you.

Finn: You’re making it sound like there’s a connection between the two.

Steffy: I kind of think there is. I mean… you went to sheila’s memorial with hope. You went to sheila’s wedding with hope. I just think hope is trying to get in your head and you already have complicated feelings towards sheila.

Finn: Okay, so what do you need? What’s your point here?

Steffy: I think the less you see of hope… the better.

Hope: Finn is such an amazing man. I mean, he’s an accomplished doctor. He saves lives. He’s kind. He’s caring. He’s generous.

Brooke: He is extraordinary. And I don’t think he should have to feel bad about having a big, open heart. Yes, his feelings about sheila are rather complicated, but no one is questioning his devotion to steffy. He’s totally committed, and I don’t get why she doesn’t get that. I’m tired of seeing such a strong, capable man having to justify himself constantly.

Brooke: Okay, wait, wait, wait. Hold on, hope. Where are you going with all of this?

Hope: I just think that maybe steffy doesn’t appreciate what she has in finn.

Brooke: Okay. I know that you and steffy have not been getting along. There’s a lot of conflict there. But steffy and finn are married. Finn is steffy’s husband. And steffy is ridge’s daughter. You need to respect that.

Hope: I am well aware of that, mom.

Brooke: Are you aware of that, honey? Look at me. Be honest with me. More importantly, be honest with yourself. Are you having feelings for steffy’s husband?

[ Suspenseful music ]

Liam: I don’t think hope is trying to create problems for you and finn.

Steffy: I’m not so sure about that.

Liam: You know what? You– you two have had a long and tangled history and I don’t know what I’m talking about necessarily. I don’t know how that feels.

Steffy: No, no, no. I should just– I should just stop venting about hope.

Liam: No, you’re fine. You’re totally fine to vent. I mean, and by the way, you’re not at all wrong about sheila. She absolutely, inarguably is dangerous.

Steffy: So you really believe that I have nothing to worry about with hope?

Carter: So the billboard next to the chateau, is that included in the budget?

Katie: Um, no. Uh, yes. I mean, yes.

Carter: What about the one on michigan avenue? Katie.

Katie: Oh.

Carter: Earth calling katie.

Katie: I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. Um, what are– what are we talking about, I…

Carter: Wow, I lost you there, didn’t I?

Katie: Yes, I– that’s obvious, I guess.

Carter: Yeah, well, I– I know you too well. If something’s on your mind, you can tell me.

Katie: There’s just something I’m really having a hard time wrapping my head around, and– and it has to do with bill.

Bill: I still can’t believe I have a daughter. You are this remarkable young woman, and you are my child.

Luna: I’ve always wondered if I’d ever meet my dad, or even know his name. And now that I have you in my life, I mean, I couldn’t have picked a better dad.

Poppy: I’m so happy for both of you, and I am overjoyed that we’re all together. Finally, we get to be a real family.

Carter: Did bill do something?

Katie: Uh, well, not quite the way you’re thinking, but yeah, yeah, he did something with someone.

Carter: What does that mean?

Katie: Bill has a daughter.

Bill: My house is your house. This is your home now.

Luna: I mean, this is insane, right? Last night, my mom and I slept in my apartment.

Poppy: And now we’re moving in.

Luna: I’m sorry. Can you tell we’re like a teeny bit excited?

Bill: Well, I don’t know who’s more excited.

Poppy: Well, I just can’t believe this is our new life.

Steffy: Hope needs to stop making excuses for sheila.

Liam: Is– is that what she’s doing?

Steffy: Yeah, she’s giving her grace. And she deserves zero forgiveness.

Liam: Well, we completely agree on that. I just– the problem is finn would say it’s more complicated.

Steffy: Finn’s emotions around his biological mother are already mixed up as it is. And now hope is promoting a relationship between them? The last thing I need is hope to be spending time with my husband.

Finn: Hope? Hope? Hey. You– you okay? What– what’s going– I lost you there for a second.

Hope: Um, what– what were you saying again, I…

Finn: Um, oh, I was just saying how much I admire you and respect you. You embody the name of your line. Hope for the future. Auntie, you can’t put that right in the dishwasher.

Katie: So, will has a brand new half-sister, if you can believe it.

Carter: And you said she’s in her early 20s and that bill just found out?

Kate: Yeah, the mother kept it to herself. She didn’t even tell her daughter.

Carter: So nobody knew?

Katie: No.

Carter: Why not reach out to bill? Give him a chance to be in his kid’s life.

Katie: Well, apparently she wasn’t 100% sure that bill was the father. And I guess she didn’t wanna look like a gold digger.

Carter: So she just comes out of the woodwork and gives him a paternity test?

Katie: Pretty much.

Carter: This is a trip, katie. Wow, a trip for all of you.

Katie: Yeah, well, that’s not all. Bill’s daughter is someone you know. Someone you see every day.

Carter: Who?

Katie: Luna.

Carter: Wait, luna, rj’s girlfriend?

Katie: Uh-huh, yeah. The woman that bill was grooving with in golden gate park was luna’s mother, poppy.

Poppy: It’s just been the two of us for so long, and we’re used to living in these tiny rentals.

Luna: But you always made them look so cute, though. It never felt small to me.

Bill: Well, that’s because they were filled with a tremendous amount of love.

Poppy: That’s right. And that’s exactly what we’re gonna do here. Fill this place with all the love and joy that we’ve missed out on sharing over the years.

Bill: I’m just glad you both agreed to move in. And I– I know it’s happening quickly.

Luna: No, no, I don’t wanna wait any longer. I wanna do all of the fun father-daughter things, and I wanna get to know you better. Dad.

Bill: Wow, dad. Hearing you call me that, I can get used to this.

Poppy: And don’t worry, we’ll contribute. We’re not freeloaders.

Bill: Poppy, come on. I mean, your– your presence here is more than enough. Worth its weight in gold.

Poppy: Thank you, bill. You know, in a million years, I never would’ve imagined living with a man like you in a place like this. I truly am so grateful.

Steffy: Okay, first, hope and finn are at sheila’s memorial. Then they’re at sheila’s wedding. Do you think that hope bonding with my husband, she’s trying to get under my skin?

Liam: What I think is that finn is sheila’s son, hope is deacon’s daughter, and that’s the whole connection. That’s it.

Steffy: Okay, I know that she wants a connection with her father. I mean, yeah, fine. I– I get it. He never shot her. That’s the difference. He’s not a cold-blooded murderer, right? Look, I just want– I really want hope to back off. And stop putting my husband in these risky situations.

Finn: You okay?

Hope: Uh, yeah, I– I didn’t expect to feel this way.

Finn: Well, they’re unpredictable. Migraines can come up at the worst possible moments.

Hope: I didn’t see it coming. But thank you for being so wonderful about it all.

Finn: Is– is the throbbing getting worse? I mean, you look– you look a little flushed.

Hope: I do?

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: Um, I’m– I am sure it will pass. I’m sure it’s nothing.

Finn: It doesn’t look like nothing, hope. Be honest with me. What’s going on in that head of yours? (Vo) for over 50 years

Carter: So your egomaniacal ex-husband is luna’s dad.

Katie: Yeah, small world, right?

Carter: Wow.

Katie: Yeah, I mean, what’s funny is that wyatt and liam came into bill’s life kind of around the same age. I mean, will is the only child that bill has that he’s actually known since birth.

Carter: Yeah, do you think he’ll be into having a surprise sister?

Katie: Ah, he’ll probably be fine with it. I mean, he might even be excited about it. I– I don’t know.

Carter: What’s not to like about luna, right?

Katie: No, no, you’re right, you’re right. She’s smart, she’s talented. I guess we’ll all just get over the shock and welcome her into the family.

Carter: Mm-hmm. What about poppy?

Katie: What about her?

Carter: What’s your vibe on her?

Katie: Well, I’ve only met her once. But she raised a great daughter, so I guess I have to admire her for that.

Carter: Mm-hmm, yeah, you respect her as a woman mother to mother, but she’s still bill spencer’s former fling.

Katie: Well, bill’s allowed to do whatever he wants. We haven’t been a couple for a long time. You were my last relationship.

Carter: Yeah, but still, how do you feel about bill having a child with poppy?

Bill: Now that you’ve had the official grand tour, what do you think?

Poppy: Isn’t it remarkable, luna?

Luna: I mean, it’s like the most gorgeous mansion I’ve ever seen.

Poppy: And that’s saying a lot. She watches all those fancy real estate shows on tv.

Bill: Well, I’m glad you both approve.

Luna: I mean, it’s just incredible, everywhere I look.

Bill: What’s incredible is that I have you two beautiful women in my life.

Poppy: Thank you, bill, for your understanding and for welcoming luna into your life with open arms.

Luna: I mean, look, this is all a dream come true, and the house is beyond awesome, but… I’d move anywhere with you guys, if it meant that we could be a family.

Bill: Speaking of family, it’s time.

Luna: Time for what?

Bill: Time for you to meet one of your brothers.

Liam: I respect where you’re coming from. I really do. I just– uh, I would hate to see your old rivalry just get kicked up a notch.

Steffy: No, it’s– it’s not about that for me.

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Steffy: Hope keeps messing with my marriage.

Liam: Um, it’s my dad, and he’s summoning me to the house, and he says it’s important.

Steffy: No, it’s fine, go. I– I really gotta stop venting to you. I’m really sorry.

Liam: No, you’re fine, and just do me a favor. Just for now, try not to get too upset about hope. I really don’t think that she’s doing this intentionally.

Steffy: I really just want hope to stop encouraging my husband to hang out with sheila. She knows that is the one thing I told him not to do. And here I go venting again. I’m sorry. It’s just, hope spending so much time with my husband, it’s– it’s really getting on my nerves.

Finn: Your– your cheeks are a bit pink. Are you– are you hot?

Hope: Um, a little.

Finn: Okay, well here, let me– can I? Okay, well you don’t have a fever.

Hope: Well, that’s good. I’m sure whatever it is, it’s not a big deal.

Finn: Okay, well, I think that we should get to the bottom of what’s really bothering you.

Hope: Oh, I don’t think– we don’t have to do that.

Finn: No, look, it’s okay. All right, really, I’m a doctor. It’s– it’s a safe space. Whatever, you know, is ailing you, you can confide in me. Look, I know we already talked about decreasing your stress level, but are you feeling anxious?

Hope: Uh, that’s one way to describe it.

Finn: Okay, well, I’m here to help you, hope. So if you can, tell me exactly how you’re feeling.


Carter: So, katie, answer my question. How do you feel about bill having a daughter with poppy?

Katie: I’m not really sure yet.

Carter: Still processing the idea, huh?

Katie I’m just trying to figure out how I should feel.

Carter: It’s definitely a significant turn of events. There’s no manual for this kind of thing.

Katie: On the one hand, it doesn’t really affect my life all that much. I guess I just don’t know how to feel about will having another sibling.

Carter: And bill having another baby mama.

Katie: Yeah.

Bill: All right, well liam should be here any minute. I am very excited for him to meet his new sister.

Poppy: Well, how do you think he’ll feel about adding a new member to the family?

Luna: Yeah, I mean, I’m sure this might be a little weird for your sons. Do you think liam will be okay with it?

Bill: Well, make him be okay with it. Wyatt and will too.

Luna: I can’t wait to meet all of them.

Poppy: Your brothers, sweetheart.

Luna: I know, I’ve always wanted siblings.

Poppy: Hey, you’re not an only child anymore.

Luna: I know.

Bill: Listen, liam is gonna love you. They’re all gonna love you. I promise. Everything’s going to be great.

[ Knock on door ]

Liam: Well, hi, dad. You, uh, you summoned me.

Bill: I did summon you. Come here, son. Liam, this is poppy.

Liam: Poppy, it is a pleasure to finally meet you.

Poppy: It’s really nice to meet you too, liam. Your dad has told me so much about you.

Liam: Uh-oh.

Bill: And this beautiful young woman is luna.

Luna: Hi.

Liam: Hi, luna. I have heard so much about you, but I promise, it’s– it’s just the good things.

Bill: Well, things just got a whole lot better. We have confirmed that luna is in fact your half-sister.

Hope: I am feeling something.

Finn: Okay.

Hope: Well, it’s– it’s– it’s hard to put into words. I– I was in love with liam for most of my life, and then we got married, and we started a family, and yet I always felt like he had one eye on steffy. And then I became involved in thomas, in spite of the things that he had done to me in the past.

Finn: Well, because you wanted someone to love you, and only you.

Hope: Exactly. And then, I don’t know, I– I got to know you. And you’re devoted, and committed, and it just made me realize some things that, while yes, liam is a good man, he wasn’t always true. And thomas was true, he just wasn’t always a good man. And then, I don’t know, just meeting you just made me realize that, like, oh wow, like the whole package can exist.

Finn: Okay, well, I– I appreciate all the compliments, but I’m certainly not perfect.

Hope: Well, I mean, at least you’re perfect where it counts. I mean, you’re good to steffy. You are dedicated to your family.

Finn: You want that.

Hope: I mean, yes, I would like that for myself.

Finn: Hope, hope, there are plenty of other guys out there like me. I mean, I promise. And you– you might have to sift through a few jerks, but you will find a great guy. A man who puts his wife and his family first. You deserve that. You deserve someone who excites you and makes you feel beautiful and appreciated.

Hope: I mean, that– that would be nice.

Finn: Yeah, well, hey, maybe I’ll set you up with one of my colleagues or something. I’ll definitely keep an ear open for anyone who fits the bill.

Hope: Thank you.

Finn: Hey.

Hope: I mean, finn, I just– like, I appreciate you and your understanding and just– I don’t know, for listening.

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: So, thanks.

Steffy: What did I just walk in on? Answer me, hope! Answer me.
