Liam: Get off me. Get off!
Bill: Just promise me you'll hear me out.
Liam: I've heard it! Okay? You're so terribly sorry! Everybody makes mistakes! Family means forgiveness! Don't you deserve a 3rd, 4th, 5th, 40th freakin' chance? I've heard it!
Bill: Yes. Yes.
[ Crying ] I said it. I said all those things. I did. I thought I meant them when i said them, son. Obviously, I've learned nothing. And if you walk out of my life, I never will.
Liam: I am not responsible for you. Not anymore. Not after you slept with my wife.
Steffy: Please just go.
Katie: No, no, I'm not leaving you like this. Is there somebody I can call?
Steffy: No. No.
Katie: Your dad, maybe?
Steffy: I just don't want to be around anyone right now.
Katie: What time does liam get home?
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Katie: I'm gonna call him.
Steffy: No! No, no. Please. Please don'T.
Katie: Okay, then I'll -- I'll just wait until he gets back.
Steffy: He won't be back. He won't be back.
Katie: Have a little faith. Of course liam will be back.
Steffy: What were we meeting about?
Katie: Oh, the storyboards for the new fall promo videos.
Steffy: Show me.
Katie: It's not important.
Steffy: Either it was never important or it still is. And clearly nothing else will make you leave.
Katie: Listen, I know about dna testing. It's usually looking for chromosomal disorders, and I can see why -- why with your history they would recommend it. My point is, that just because i saw a paternity test doesn't mean that I'm jumping to conclusions.
Steffy: How do you think i know liam's not coming back?
Bill: I regret what happened so much. Please believe me.
Bill: But terrible things happen in life, right? Awful things happen. You have to forgive steffy. She's carrying your child. You can't let this destroy your family. You can'T.
Katie: [ Sighs ] Are you sure there's nothing more I can do for you?
Steffy: I'll be fine.
Katie: You're not fine. Okay. I'm gonna go. But before I do, I -- I just want to say one thing. You had that paternity test done because you were trying to determine the baby's father.
Steffy: Yes. And it's liam'S.
Katie: Good. But clearly there were other possibilities.
Katie: One, but it was an ongoing affair?
Steffy: No. No. It was just once.
Katie: Just once?
Katie: [ Sighs ]
Steffy: You don't understand.
Katie: No, I understand better than you think. You made a mistake. You broke your marriage vows, and that's -- that's bad. And I'm sure you hurt liam, but everyone makes mistakes. I mean, come on, how many years did we watch liam wander from you to hope and back again, breaking both of your hearts in the process?
Steffy: Katie, please, I don't want to --
Katie: No, no, no. I'm just saying that you -- you have forgiven him for a lot. So maybe it's his turn to forgive you. And it will take time, but... you have a baby now, and he owes it to you to at least try. It seems impossible, but, steffy, it's not. He loves you so much. I can't imagine that there's anything you could have done that will change that. It won't be easy because liam sees things in black and white. He's all or nothing. He's so stubborn. Just like bill. I mean, neither one of them would ever admit it, but they're so alike. That's probably why they fight all the time. I mean, you've pretty much kept that relationship together. You've gone to bill countless times to defend liam, and you've argued bill's point to... to liam. You have... you have such a long history with both of them. You've known both of them for such a long time, especially bill. I know just how long. Oh, my god. Is -- is the other man bill?
Bill: Not that long ago, you were asking me to remind you of something. You asked me to remind you that you had everything you could want in life. Everything to make you happy. You still do, liam. You still do. Great job, great future, a wonderful wife who loves you...
Bill: Only two things have changed. Just two. Betrayal by me. And a child on the way. A little girl or boy, an innocent little baby. And for the sake of that kid, you have to got to forgive steffy. You've got to. I'm pleading with you, son. I'm pleading with you. Don't walk out on your family. I am pleading with you not to walk out on steffy.
Liam: Stop saying her name! Stop it!
[ Groans ]
Bill: Yeah. That's -- that's what you need to do. You need to get your anger out. Let it out. Hit me. Hit me, liam. Hit me as many times as you want to. Let it out. Let it out, liam!
Steffy: It only happened once.
Steffy: No. No.
Katie: I can't believe that bill would do something like this.
Steffy: No, no, he didn't -- we both... katie, you can't tell anybody about this.
Katie: Were you drinking? Did he give you something?
Steffy: No, no, it was nothing like that. Liam and I, we just -- we got in a fight.
Katie: That's no excuse! You are his daughter-in-law.
Steffy: Bill thought our marriage was over, and, yeah, something did happen between liam and sally.
Steffy: During the demolition. They -- they kissed. But he did the right thing. He told me.
Steffy: Katie, I was in shock. I didn't know what to do. I've always been able to trust him. And if he could turn to sally, what did that mean for me? What -- what did that mean for us?
Katie: It means that he's human!
Steffy: I know! I don't know. I don't know, katie. I don't know why! I don't know!
[ Sighs ] I don't know why I let myself wake up next to him.
Liam: I don't want to hit you. I don't even want to look at you.
Bill: Then don'T. Don't look at me. Just tell me you're going home to your wife. Just tell me...
Liam: How am I supposed to do that? You took the most precious... the most precious thing in my life and corrupted it.
Bill: Real men don't walk out on their families.
Liam: And yet you've done it repeatedly.
Bill: Then I guess you see my point. My father turned his back on me. I didn't know my older boys till they were grown. I was counting on you to turn the curse of the spencer men around. You -- you would be the one to make a home and defend it, the one to hold this family together.
Liam: I can't be your savior.
Bill: No. No one can. But you can save yourself. And your kid. And your wife. What about the promises you made, liam?
Liam: You mean the vows she renewed after she left the bed where you took her from me?
Bill: She couldn't run from me fast enough.
Liam: Exactly! I can't either. I can't run away from you fast enough.
Bill: And I don't blame you. I don't blame you. But don't make steffy suffer any more than she already has. She needs your forgiveness. And there is no one more capable of forgiveness than you. You know, I'm not -- I'm not a guy who believes that there's some grand plan in life, but maybe there is. Maybe there is because this child is yours. And that's a decision that was out of your hands and my hands and steffy's hands. Liam, she was -- she was broken. She was an absolute wreck when there was the possibility that the child could be mine, and when she found out that it was yours, she was absolutely overjoyed. That showed me just how much she loves you. So don't you see, son? It's meant to be. This baby, your family, your obligation to make the spencers function for once! You can make us better. My father had no desire to do that. I certainly couldn't do it. So it's up to you.
Liam: You have the gall to talk to me about obligations to family? I will share custody of this child, and I will make sure he or she is as far away from your influence as possible. Don't you tell me how to be a parent.
Katie: I really don't think you should be alone tonight.
Steffy: I'm gonna be alone a lot.
Katie: You have to take care of yourself for this baby. You know that.
Steffy: This is strange, you and me.
[ Sighs ]
Katie: Yeah, I guess so.
Steffy: Thank you for not judging me as harshly as I do.
Katie: Yeah, well, who am i to judge? This spencer family is messed up, and it starts at the top.
Steffy: Oh, bill just wanted to --
Katie: Yeah, he wants. He wants and he wants and he wants.
Steffy: I should have told him to leave. Or I should have just left.
Katie: You're talking about a man whose entire life is ruled by his fear of abandonment. I mean, it defines everything. And it's self-fulfilling because he tries to control everyone so much that -- that we all end up leaving. You realize that you should expect him. Maybe you should go someplace else.
Steffy: No. I can'T. I can't do that.
Katie: Because you -- you think liam might come back?
Steffy: I'm just so ashamed.
Katie: No. Don't do that. Don't do that. You were taken advantage of.
Steffy: No. No. I wasn'T. I can't say that.
Katie: Well, I can say it. I will say it for you.
Steffy: I can'T. Katie, promise me you're not gonna say anything.
Katie: It's his shame, steffy, not yours.
Steffy: Promise me.
Katie: Okay. I promise. I promise.
Liam: I'll never see steffy the same way again, you know. Never hold her in my arms. Never look her in the eye. Never take her to dinner, never wake up next to her. It's gone now. And you took it. You did. That's -- you took the most beautiful part of my life and destroyed it. Now there's a kid. So you're right, you are passing the spencer family legacy down onto me. Spencer men not there. Not there to raise their children. Congratulations. You know, life is short. We all do what we can. We all try to leave the world a better place, but you don't do that. Because what you care about, what you're obsessed with is leaving your mark. Nothing's big enough or shiny enough or destroyed enough if it gets in your way. You even left your mark on me and wyatt.
[ Laughing ] With these -- with these ridiculous swords hanging on our neck. And you made your mark on my wife and child, too.
[ Grunts ]
Bill: I thought I had the worst father in the world. He was an abusive son of a bitch. And I swore I'd never be anything like him. I'm worse. I could never forgive him. But I can't go on without your forgiveness. Please, liam. You have more goodness in you than anyone I know. I need you. This baby needs you. The family -- we all need you. You can take the darkness that has been a curse over the spencers for generations and bring it to life. You can do that by staying with your wife and your family. Hate me. All right? Listen. Look at me. Hate me. Hate me if you have to. But I am pleading with you -- I am begging you to love your wife and your baby. Because it was my fault. The whole thing, it was my fault. Just mine. Liam. Liam. Liam! What have I done? What have I done?!
