Steffy: This house...is just like me. Now that our baby's gone, it just seems empty.
[Knock on door]
Taylor: Um, do you have a minute?
Hope: Uh, yeah, sure.
Taylor: Of course, um, you know Liam and Steffy have suffered a tremendous loss.
Hope: I'm so sorry for what they're going through.
Taylor: Well, I just, um, wanted to come and get some assurance from you. I want your word that you'll give Liam and Steffy all the space they need. And [Sighs] That you won't take advantage of Liam's grief.
Donna: Brooke, you called me in here, told me it was urgent, and now you're not saying anything. Are -- are you okay? The baby?
Brooke: Oh, no. We're -- we're fine. W-we're both fine.
Donna: So, what's going on?
Brooke: You're not gonna like this.
Donna: Okay. Consider me warned.
Brooke: I know he's your Honey Bear...
Donna: This is about Eric?
Brooke: ...And you loved him very much.
Donna: Still do.
Brooke: Well, we have that in common. We have a bond that's been lasting and it's very strong.
Donna: Wh-where are you going with all of this, Brooke?
Brooke: I want a future with Eric.
Donna: What does that even mean, Brooke? A future with Eric?
Brooke: It's the only solution.
Donna: To what?
Brooke: To my situation.
Donna: Okay. Obviously, your hormones are really out of whack.
Brooke: Look, I know this sounds impulsive.
Donna: It sounds crazy.
Brooke: But I've thought about this. If I don't put a name to the father of that child, Katie's gonna get suspicious. She's gonna figure it out. She can count, Donna. And Eric is believable. I've been married to him before, and we have children together.
Donna: And when was this one conceived, Brooke? When Taylor was out puttering in the garden?
Brooke: Never mind about Taylor. She has nothing to do with this.
Donna: She has been suspicious of you for months now. It -- it'll take her two minutes to put this together.
Brooke: I've thought this through, really. I can make this work.
Donna: Honey, I-I don't this is gonna fly.
Brooke: Yeah, well, it has to. Katie has to believe this child was fathered by somebody other than Bill. It would destroy her, and I'm not gonna take a wrecking ball to my sister's life.
Hope: I could choose to be offended by that, but I'm not, because I see where you're coming from.
Taylor: I'm glad you understand. But I am also telling you this because, Hope, you could get hurt again if you set yourself up to think that it's okay to pursue Liam again.
Hope: And what makes you so sure?
Taylor: Well, because they're moving on with their future. They are planning to get pregnant again. Dr. Caspary told them today that it was okay if they started right away. So, it would be in your best interest if you kept your distance.
Liam: Hey. You need anything?
Steffy: Just be here with me. [Voice breaking] How could a tiny, unborn baby fill up so much space? [Crying] I feel so hollow. Like this tiny little child was there. It was inside of me, and now there's -- now there's nothing.
Liam: Yeah, um... I don't really know what to say.
Steffy: You have to get it out. You have to get it out, Liam. I deserve all the anger that you're feeling, because this is my fault.
Liam: Steffy, I-I'm not going there.
Steffy: No. You told me. You told me not to get -- told me not to get on the bike, and I did. And now our baby is gone because of me, and you should be furious with me, because I'm furious with me.
Liam: I -- I'm not gonna beat up on you. Okay? Yeah, you got on the bike when I asked you not to, but that happened already. That's over. And me getting mad and going off on you -- that's not gonna help either of us.
Steffy: Just -- I just wish I could take back that awful day. I wish I'd never gone to the beach house. I wish I'd died instead of my baby. [Sobbing]
Liam: Don't say that. We just need time.
Hope: Steffy plans to get pregnant right away?
Hope: I don't know why that surprises me, but it does.
Hope: You don't think it's interesting that all of a sudden, Steffy is laser focused on having another child?
Taylor: No. No. She's married. She's with the man she loves. She was already of that mind-set. She wants to have a child. She wants to start a family.
Hope: Liam married her because she was pregnant, and I know that's not how you see things, but it's true. And now it sounds like she's trying to get him to stay by doing the same thing. [Sighs]
Taylor: That is not the way it is, although I can understand why that might be your perception.
Hope: Oh, I see things very clearly.
Taylor: Well, I hope so. Because if you do, you'll leave Liam to move on with his future with his wife. That is where he belongs, and that is where he's going to stay.
Steffy: [Breathing shakily]
[Cell phone beeps]
Liam: Hey. Are you sure that tea is all you want? I mean, I could get you some food.
Steffy: No, no.
Liam: Okay. I mean, for now, but eventually, you know?
Steffy: I know.
Steffy: I want to make this up to you. I know we can't get back the child we lost, but we can have another one. I want to get pregnant as soon as possible.
Liam: It might take a while. Dr. Caspary said your body needs time to heal.
Steffy: Another child will heal us both.
Liam: I kind of think we should focus on you first and then deal with everything else as it comes, okay? How do you feel? Any pain?
Steffy: Not bad.
Liam: Okay. I'll tell you what. Why don't I get you settled in for a nap? I got to run out for a little bit anyway. Okay?
Liam: Oh. Sorry. You okay?
Liam: Good? [Sighs]
Steffy: Hold me?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, as long as you want.
Donna: Let's think this through. If -- and that's a big if -- Eric agrees to claim paternity of this child, how are you gonna deal with Taylor?
Brooke: I can't worry about how Taylor's gonna react. I need to find an acceptable father for this child. That's all that matters.
Donna: What if she demands a paternity test?
Brooke: We'll say we had one proving that Eric's the father.
Donna: What if she wants to see it?
Brooke: I don't know. I'll get one somehow.
Donna: Okay, don't -- don't you think that Bill's gonna figure this out the second that he hears you're pregnant?
Brooke: I will handle it.
Donna: And you're gonna be able to look this man that you clearly love in the eyes and lie to him about his child, knowing how much family means to him?
Brooke: I'll tell Bill what I tell everybody else -- the child is Eric's.
Donna: Brooke, he's gonna take one look at you and know.
Brooke: When he sees Eric and me building a life together, planning for our child, he will let it go.
Donna: You're kidding yourself, you know?
Brooke: It's the only plan there is, Donna. I don't want to Katie to have another heart attack. She may not survive the next one.
Donna: You having Bill's baby would be a major blow.
Donna: You're trying to protect our sister.
Brooke: Who knows how much longer she has. I want her to be happy. I want her to spend the rest of her life with her child and with her husband. And I'm gonna do everything possible to make sure that happens.
Taylor: Hey. I brought you a little soup.
Steffy: Uh, just leave it there. I'm not hungry.
Taylor: I know, but it's just soup. It's not a commitment. Where's Liam?
Steffy: He had to go somewhere.
Taylor: Did he say where?
Steffy: No, he didn't.
Taylor: I, um -- I just had a word with Hope. I told her to keep her distance.
Steffy: I don't suppose she agreed.
Taylor: [Chuckles] Oh, she played it off.
Steffy: I can't think about Hope right now. She seems so small in the context of things. [Groans]
Taylor: Honey, how are you doing?
Taylor: I'm sorry.
Steffy: I'm not okay. I am responsible for my child's death.
Hope: I'm so sorry.
Liam: Thanks. Yeah. Me, too.
Hope: [Sighs] You look exhausted.
Liam: [Chuckles] Yeah. I'm drained, maybe in shock. I just finally wrapped my head around the idea of having a baby, and now...no baby. It's weird. It's like we just did all this shopping -- you know, baby toys and decorating the nursery -- and now...
Hope: How's -- how's Steffy?
Liam: She's beating herself up for getting on that bike.
Hope: Yeah, wh-when I heard that she rode her motorcycle down the aisle at your wedding, I thought... nev-- I'm sorry. Never mind.
Liam: No, what?
Hope: You know, that's just Steffy being Steffy, I guess. She's a risk taker.
Liam: Well...she knows now she shouldn't have done it. [Sighs]
Hope: You haven't...expressed any anger or frustration at all?
Liam: Why? I mean, she feels guilty enough as it is without me piling on.
Hope: And where do you put what you're feeling?
Liam: I'm still figuring that one out.
Brooke: Must be hard for you -- being caught in the middle between Katie and me and now Eric.
Donna: I'll always support you, even if I don't agree with your decisions.
Brooke: Thank you.
Donna: I'll always be here for you.
[Cell phone ringing]
Bridget: Hey, Mom. Guess what.
Bridget: I'm in town.
Brooke: You are?
Bridget: Oh, just a quick trip. I was wondering if you were free for dinner tonight.
Brooke: Well, yes. Yes, I'd love to get together with you. You know what? Let's -- let's make it a family affair -- Eric, me, you, Rick.
Bridget: I'd love that.
Brooke: Let's meet at the house. I'll let everybody know, and I'm looking forward to seeing you.
Donna: I know that look. You're up to something.
Brooke: Eric and me and our two children. I have a very good idea. Tonight.
Taylor: It's normal to have a certain amount of guilt.
Steffy: Why didn't it occur to me that I could wipe out? Why didn't I -- why didn't I think about that? Why didn't I think about... protecting my child?
Taylor: Honey, it was an accident.
Taylor: Look, we all have times in our lives we could have made better judgments. You didn't kill your baby. You have to find a way to come to terms with this. Honey, you've got to forgive yourself.
Liam: I really wanted that kid. Didn't plan for it. When it became real, I was so on board. That baby was -- it was real to me.
Hope: [Sighing] Oh, Liam.
Liam: I'm sorry.
Hope: Oh, no. You're grieving. It's okay. I know that Steffy wants to get pregnant again right away.
Liam: Who told you that?
Hope: Taylor. She, uh -- she came over, telling me to stay away from you. [Chuckles]
Liam: Uh-huh. [Chuckles] Hey, um, listen, I know that you think Steffy trapped me.
Hope: I know that Steffy said that's not what she wanted. And -- and that that's why she didn't tell you about the baby at first. But you were about to put a ring on my finger, and then she made her big announcement. I know that you have to be with Steffy right now. You have to help her through this loss. But she's gonna be okay. She will. Liam, I am here for you. If you need anything, just tell me. I will always, always be here for you.
