Liam: I just -- I -- [Chuckles] I want to make sure that I heard you right. It's over? You and Wyatt?
Steffy: I'm gonna start the separation process. I know it's gonna take time, but... I'm getting a divorce. Maybe get everything annulled. I-I don't --
Liam: You certainly have grounds.
Steffy: Yeah. Either way, it's happening. I got to think about myself. I got to -- I got to think about my family. So yeah. That means Wyatt and I are over.
Thomas: What's this about?
Brooke: You have news?
Ridge: Yeah. And it's not very good.
Rick: What did you do now?
Ridge: I do what was right -- protecting the company and the family.
Thomas: Using your power of attorney, you mean, for granddad?
Brooke: Quinn's not trying to challenge that, is she?
Rick: She shouldn't. She wouldn't have a legal leg to stand on. Right?
Carter: I'd say she does.
Ridge: Considering she is the one that holds the power of attorney.
Thomas: Since when?
Ridge: Since dad signed the paperwork.
Brooke: Replacing you?
Ridge: [Sighs] No, not replacing me. I never had it. I lied. Quinn has the power. Dad is in trouble. We're all in trouble.
Zende: Would you go through that again? Give up another nine months of your life to rick and Maya? They already have their biological child. Half Forrester, half Avant. Asking you to be their surrogate again, that's too much, Nicole. Come on. You see that, right? You can't actually be considering saying yes.
Nicole: I don't know how to answer that. Be a surrogate, give another nine months of my life to rick and Maya? Yes, it's too much. But am I considering it? Yes. Don't I have to?
Nicole: She's my sister.
Zende: That doesn't mean you have to give over your body to her! They want to give Lizzy a little brother or sister. Great. They should. But there are other ways that they can go about getting her a sibling.
Nicole: I'm sure they'll consider adoption if I turn them down, or another surrogate.
Zende: Are you really saying "if"? Nicole, you already gave them the ultimate gift. They can't ask for it again.
Rick: Quinn has power of attorney?!
Thomas: How -- how is that even possible?
Brooke: Why would you lie about that?
Ridge: I didn't mean to lie about it. I didn't think I was. I thought I had it. Carter had the paperwork. We gave it to dad to sign.
Carter: He signed, all right, after writing in Quinn's name instead.
Rick: You know what this is? This is a disaster.
Ridge: I assumed I had it. That's why I started acting on it.
Carter: When I found out, I had to break the news.
Brooke: To ridge and Quinn both?
Ridge: Well, I didn't exactly want Quinn to know about it, so...
Thomas: Oh, dad.
Ridge: But then Wyatt found out, and he ran to his mommy and brought her the news.
Liam: Okay, so you see it now, right? Where Wyatt's loyalty really lies?
Steffy: He's with Quinn. As much as he promised, as much as he tried to side with me, it just -- it wasn't gonna happen. And it hurts, but I can't blame him. She's his mom. I just wish he went along with it. If he just made Quinn believe that my dad had power of attorney, but he had to tell her, so now it's like it cements Quinn into the business, with my grandfather, everything. So, yeah. Yeah, Liam. You were right. You were right all along.
Nicole: If you never ask for things in life, the answer is always no. That's probably what rick and Maya are thinking.
Zende: Some things shouldn't be asked.
Nicole: Well, they weren't pressuring me at all. I mean, you were there. They were so understanding, almost apologetic.
Zende: Because they know it's ridiculous to come to you with this. And I'm sure your parents would say the same thing.
Nicole: They love Lizzy and being grandparents.
Zende: They are grateful to you for bringing her into the world, but that doesn't mean they want you to put yourself through it again. Enough is enough, all right? You have to turn them down. Tell me you agree.
Nicole: [Sighs] I do. You're right. I... I will tell them that I can't do it.
Brooke: Were you thinking about keeping this lie going forever?
Ridge: As long as I possibly could.
Rick: I don't understand. What were you thinking?
Ridge: You don't understand what? What -- what don't you understand? That I tried to protect dad and the company?
Rick: No, I understand that you wanted power of attorney! But to lie about it? I mean, how did you think you weren't gonna get caught?! How did you think you weren't gonna make things a thousand times worse when dad woke up and found out that you had power of attorney and not Quinn?!
Ridge: I don't know! I don't know, Ricky. And it doesn't matter. I would have found a way to smooth it over, and Quinn would have been gone by then.
Thomas: This is just gonna make granddad trust Quinn even more.
Ridge: I know that! But I'd already thrown her out of the house. I'd thrown her out of the company, and I thought it was just easier to keep the lie going. Do you know what I think? You, you, and you would have done exactly the same, because Quinn making decisions for this company, for this family, is unacceptable! And I wasn't gonna have her take advantage of dad one day longer.
Thomas: I get it.
Rick: Yeah, I do, too. Stupid lie would have never worked. But I get it.
Brooke: Okay. So now what? Quinn is in charge.
Brooke: She's making decisions for Eric.
Carter: It appears it's what he wanted, yes.
Ridge: And just because Wyatt overheard me talking to Steffy.
Thomas: Hold on. Steffy knew about this?
Brooke: And Steffy kept it from Wyatt?
Ridge: She tried to keep it from him. As she should have, because we wouldn't be here. Got to tell you, Wyatt's gonna regret this decision for the rest of his life.
Steffy: You were right. The way Wyatt and I got together. Quinn's manipulations. It's, like, how could we last? It's like I wanted my marriage to work, and I know you know how much commitment means to me.
Liam: I-I know. And I also know how stubborn you are.
Steffy: But there's --
Liam: Steffy, if that marriage had any chance of survival, you would have found it.
Steffy: But there's no coming back from this. I need Quinn out of my life, and that means I need Wyatt out of my life. Look, if he just went along with it, she would have been out of the company, my grandfather would have been safe, we would have been fine. But he had to tell her. So I'm moving on.
Zende: It's good to hear you say that. I wasn't exactly worried, but the way you were sounding was kind of...
Nicole: Well, it's a little exciting, isn't it? The idea of giving Lizzy a sibling. I mean, I know I'm not her mother, but I did give birth to her. And if this is really happening, there's just part of me that can't help wanting to be the one to do it. And it's not out of obligation or because rick and Maya are asking me. It's out of... I don't know. Something maternal. It does something to me inside, thinking of giving Lizzy a sibling, thinking about being the one to make it happen. It's hard to explain.
Zende: I get that. I-I do. I'm sure that's why Maya and rick asked you.
Nicole: Well, their hearts are in the right place. They want to do what's best for their daughter.
Zende: Totally understandable. Also understandable -- you have to do what's best for you.
Thomas: Oh, poor Steffy.
Ridge: I hate to say it, but I, um...
Brooke: Is it over?
Ridge: This was the last straw.
Thomas: She warned him countless times. Quinn was not allowed to be a part of their lives.
Rick: And we had a chance to get rid of her. Quinn thought you had power of attorney. Hell, we all did.
Brooke: [Sighs] She was almost out!
Ridge: It was close. She was out of the office. I got her out of the house, filed a restraining order against her.
Thomas: And Wyatt ruined this?
Ridge: Wyatt? You know, I think he tried to keep his mom out of it, but... mothers and sons, you know -- that's a tough bond. But Steffy can't live her life like that. She shouldn't.
Thomas: So that means... Steffy can finally go back to Liam.
Liam: Steffy, look. When you say that you're ready to move on, I want you to know I am, too. And whatever that looks like to you, whatever pace you need.
Steffy: You always knew. You never gave up. Even when you came back, you tried telling me.
Liam: Okay, don't do that. We don't need the guilt. You weren't wrong to fight for your marriage.
Steffy: Yeah, but my marriage was just based off of Quinn's manipulations. She used you, and she made all of us her victims.
Liam: Yeah, until we stood up to her, which is exactly what you're doing right now. All of -- all of her lies, all of her manipulating, we could put that behind us. That could be a memory.
Steffy: No. Not for my grandfather.
Liam: No, not yet, but your grandfather's a different situation. I mean, he -- he made that choice with his eyes wide open. Quinn didn't kidnap him. She didn't trick him like she did you and me. Steffy, Quinn made you think that I didn't care about you.
Steffy: I know. And I never should have believed it. I should have known. But the one thing I do know now and I will always know is that your feelings for me will never waver.
Liam: I mean, even when I had no memory to speak of, I still knew you.
Steffy: You knew someone needed you. You knew I was out here. I mean, even when you came back, you saw the -- you saw this tattoo, and you still cared about me. You still defended me. So now it's my turn. And you're gonna see. I believe in us, too.
Nicole: You don't think it's selfish?
Zende: It's extremely selfish. I don't know what they were thinking asking you to do this again.
Nicole: Not rick and Maya. Me. Turning them down.
Zende: No. It's not selfish at all. You already gave them Lizzy, an incredible thing to do. How could they possibly want anything more?
Nicole: Well, the idea of it is very intriguing. I mean, would the baby look like Lizzy? Maybe they would have a son this time and even out the family.
Zende: Well, you know how they can guarantee a son. Adoption.
Zende: Besides, you can't put all your attention on growing another baby.
Nicole: I can't?
Zende: No. Listen, all your attention needs to be on your boyfriend.
Nicole: Oh, yeah, he is kinda needy.
Nicole: He takes up all my time.
Zende: Yeah, see? How would you even find the time to fit a pregnancy in?
Ridge: If there was ever a chance for Steffy and Liam, I'd say this is it.
Brooke: He never lost faith, even after she married Wyatt.
Rick: Well, there were circumstances -- Quinn keeping him away.
Ridge: That woman should be in prison after what she did to Liam. Keeping him hostage? What is that? She's dangerous, and now she's taking care of my dad in his house.
Thomas: She controls our finances, the company. Us.
Rick: Stephanie's rolling over in her grave.
Thomas: There's one good thing that comes from this, and it sucks that Wyatt has to get hurt. But Steffy and Liam, it's hard to deny that they belong together.
Brooke: The way her marriage to Wyatt started, it never would have worked out.
Thomas: It's just another obstacle. A big one, but... Steffy and Liam always seem to find their way back to each other.
Ridge: And they will this time, too. And maybe my daughter will finally be happy. She tried with Wyatt. She tried, but the happiness that she wanted... the happiness that a father wants for his kid, she's only gonna find that with Liam.
Liam: Hey. Hey, Steffy, listen to me. Listen. You have nothing to prove. I know exactly how you feel.
Steffy: How? After all I put you through.
Liam: Because your eyes show me.
Steffy: [Voice breaking] I want you back. Our life. It's... it's clear to me now. I need you.
Liam: You have no idea how good it feels to hear that.
Steffy: About time, huh?
Liam: No, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how long it took. I would have waited. I don't give up on you. Not after everything we've been through, after all the obstacles we've had to overcome, after years -- literally years -- of waiting for this moment. And yeah, you had your doubts. And even when you were trying to make it work with my brother, I knew. I knew that we would end up here. And now guess what? I get to say I was right. We made it, Steffy. We made it.
