Liam: Tell me! You have to! Tell me right now!
Steffy: It was bill! It was your father.

[ Sighs ]
[ Car approaching ]
Steffy: Liam? Liam?
[ Car door opens, closes ] Liam, is that you?
Bill: He hasn't come home. You haven't heard from him at all?

trying to determine the baby's
And it's liam'S.
Katie: But clearly there were
Katie: Oh! [ Laughs ]
Wyatt: [ Laughs ] I'm sorry!
Katie: Oh, my gosh.
Wyatt: I thought you heard me come in.
Katie: No, I didn't, but it's good to see you.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] You, uh... you looked kind of lost there for a second.
Katie: I just, um, was thinking.
Wyatt: Yeah? About this? Hmm? Hmm? Or not. Uh, everything all right?
Katie: Yeah, I just -- I saw steffy earlier.
Wyatt: Yeah, about the work thing.
Katie: Pam said that she was working from home, so I thought it would be okay if I just went by.
Wyatt: But it wasn't?
Katie: I don't think she was expecting me. I think she's dealing with a lot right now.
Brooke: [ Laughs ] Another surprise?
Ridge: You're gonna love this one.
Brooke: Ridge, it's not christmas anymore.
Ridge: But I told you at christmas that I would give your heart's desire, and your heart desires this, trust me.
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
Ridge: Close your eyes. Keep 'em closed.
Brooke: [ Laughing ] Okay.
The role of hope is now
being played by annika noelle.
Ridge: Open them.
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
Brooke: [ Gasps ] Hope?
Hope: Hi, mom.
Brooke: Oh, my god! I can't believe this! My baby! You're home!
[ Laughs ] Oh!
[ Gasps ]
Brooke: [ Gasps ] So, what are you doing here, hope?
Hope: Oh, gosh, blame this guy. I mean, he's been hounding me for weeks.
Ridge: I think the word you're looking for is... persistent.
Hope: Mm. Relentless.
Ridge: Whatever. I tried having her for christmas, but she said she was too busy.
Hope: Well, just packing up my flat took a week, not to mention dealing with H.R., Everything I had to finish at the office.
Hope: I loved milan, but, you know, I miss my family, L.A., And not to mention when ridge gave me a call, I started thinking about being here with you again, you know, at the office, maybe having the chance to revitalize hope for the future. You know, I learned so much when I was in europe, but now I think I'm ready for a new challenge.
Brooke: So this isn't just a visit?
Hope: No, mom. I'm home.
Brooke: [ Gasps ] Really? Oh, my god! I'm so excited! Oh, my gosh! I'm so happy. Oh, honey! [ Laughs ]
Wyatt: You didn't let on that you knew steffy was pregnant, did you?
Katie: It kind of came up organically.
Wyatt: Okay, so she knows that you know.
Katie: Yeah, but she doesn't know that you told me.
Wyatt: Right. Good. Because liam swore me to secrecy.
Katie: Trust me, I wouldn't get you into trouble.
Wyatt: Okay. She didn't ask how you found out? She's not upset that you know?
Katie: There's a lot going on over there right now.
Steffy: Bill, you can't be here. If liam comes home and he sees you --
Bill: Just tell me you got a text or something. He's going to contact you. He has to. You're pregnant. What happened between us, it doesn't matter. You're having a baby, he's the father, and he has to act like one. And that's what you're gonna tell him. That's what you're gonna tell him when you see him. He has a family.
Steffy: Bill, we could have had a family. That's all we wanted more than anything. And then what you and I did... bill, we ruined everything.
Wyatt: Steffy's probably been dying to say something to somebody. I mean, how long do couples wait to announce that kind of thing?
Katie: Well, steffy and liam's timeline might be a little different.
Wyatt: Right. I know liam's excited. Probably out buying baby furniture right now. After everything they've been through, this is just like a -- it's like a dream come true. I mean, I understand why they didn't want to say anything yet. I mean, it's gonna get out.
We can keep a secret. Dad on the other hand? I mean... that's another story.
Katie: Well, bill should just stay out of it. He should just let steffy and liam deal with it on their own.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] You know me so well, how much I've been missing hope.
Ridge: I would do anything to put a smile on your face.
Hope: Mm, well, I was missing you, too.
Ridge: It's time to put the family back together.
Hope: Yeah, you and mom are getting remarried.
Brooke: That won't be for a while.
Hope: Well, that just gives us plenty of time to plan it.
Brooke: If you have time. I thought you were talking about revitalizing your line.
Hope: It's something I've been considering. I knew I couldn't do it abroad, but now that I'm home, who knows? But, really, I'm just excited to be here, back in the middle of things.
Brooke: Honey, you know you could have come home any time.
Hope: Yeah, but europe just felt like the right place. I was working in paris and milan and volunteering and traveling the world. I mean, it really gave me the chance to find myself, gain a new perspective, and, you know, I think it was good for me to be on my own for a while. Sort through everything. But I met new people, I got to spread my wings, and now it is time for me to bring that new attitude home.
Brooke: Well. [ Laughs ] When you left, I didn't think you'd be gone so long.
Hope: Neither did I.
Brooke: Was the reason you stayed away because of liam? His marriage to steffy?
Steffy: Bill, please just go.
Bill: I'm not leaving you alone like this.
Steffy: Well, I'm gonna be like this for a very long time. My husband is gone. I'm done talking about this. I told katie, and now I'm telling you.
Bill: You -- you told katie?
Steffy: She knows, bill.
Bill: She knows what?
Steffy: She came by to drop off some work, and she saw the same paternity test liam saw.
Steffy: It was an accident. She's not gonna say anything.
Bill: She's not gonna say anything? Because you told her to mind her own business? Steffy, you got to reach out to her. You got to make it crystal-clear to keep her mouth shut.
Steffy: No, no. The only person I want to talk to right now is liam.
Bill: I told him to go home.
Steffy: Well, he's devastated. He's heartbroken, and he has every right to be.
Bill: If he wants to hate someone, he can hate me. All right? Cut me out of his life. Cut me out of my grandchild's life. But he has got to be here for both of you.
Steffy: This isn't helping.
Bill: Call him.
Steffy: He won't answer.
Bill: You got to keep trying.
Steffy: What if it doesn't work? What if I lost liam for good?
Wyatt: Are you worried that dad's gonna be, like...
Katie: I don't know what to think about bill.
Wyatt: [ Scoffs ] I know he can be pushy sometimes. He doesn't just dip his toes in the family business, he jumps in with both feet.
Katie: Well, that's the last thing that steffy and liam need right now. You know, this should be an amazing time for them. They're having a baby. It's -- it's beautiful. There are all of these new experiences that they'll never want to forget, like picking a name or decorating the nursery or buying baby clothes. It's just -- there's so much... so much expectation and excitement.
Wyatt: My dad's not gonna get in the way of that.
Katie: Well, I hope not.
Wyatt: Katie, what's going on here? Did something happen when you went to go see steffy?
Steffy: Katie, promise me
you're not gonna say anything.
Katie: It's his shame,
steffy, not yours.
Steffy: Promise me.
Katie: I just -- I know that steffy and liam have been through so much. And this should be their time, you know, the two of them and their little family. She's wanted this for so long. Liam has wanted this for so long. And it was totally unexpected. It wasn't planned, but... ready or not, steffy and liam are having a baby.
Hope: Maya told me that liam and steffy renewed their vows?
Ridge: Yep. Before thanksgiving.
Hope: After liam almost died in that explosion.
Brooke: He's so lucky to be alive.
Hope: Steffy must have been terrified.
Ridge: It shook them both pretty good.
Hope: But they're okay? Happy? I mean, I know it hasn't been perfect, but...
Brooke: Liam's been having some issues with his father.
Ridge: Who doesn't have issues with him?
Brooke: And steffy was instrumental in bringing them back together. She really kept their family from falling apart.
Hope: She's been good for liam.
Brooke: Well, like you said, no relationship is perfect, hope. Even the best ones. But they are committed, and they do complement each other.
Ridge: And, you know, I think almost losing the person you love most in the world puts a perspective on things. It just makes you realize how precious some things are. And after what they've been through, I don't think there's anything that can tear liam and steffy apart.
Bill: I wish I could tell you liam was coming back. But I can'T. He's in a very dark place right now.
Steffy: We all are. This is just a horrible situation.
Bill: I tried to stop him. I told him to go home.
Steffy: You saw him?
Bill: He came by my office.
Steffy: Please tell me you guys didn't get in a fight.
Bill: No. No, that would have been normal. Better, even. I -- I told him to hit me, to get his anger out.
Steffy: He's not gonna throw a tantrum, bill.
[ Sighs ] His wife and his father betrayed him.
Bill: He's out of his mind.
Steffy: Does that surprise you?
Bill: I've never seen him like that before. He ripped off his sword necklace, he was squeezing it in his hand. There was blood. He wiped it on my face.
Bill: He said we were done. He cut all ties with me.
Steffy: He's -- he's angry right now.
Bill: Yeah. But he can't be that way with you.
Steffy: I did this to him.
Bill: No, I -- I did this to him. So if he wants to blame somebody, let him blame me for the rest of his life. But turning his back on you, his child, not an option. He's got to come home.
Steffy: I don't even know how he's gonna look at me. I can barely look at myself.
Bill: No, he's not going to abandon your child.
Steffy: Bill, he doesn't want to raise a child with me.
Bill: Listen to me. I'm telling you, he's gonna --
Steffy: No. No, bill! You don't get it! You don't get it! This isn't just some challenge, some obstacle that liam and i can overcome. This was our dream. Having a family, having a baby. We didn't even think it was possible, and then it finally happened, and it -- it seemed like this was a sign. That everything was gonna be okay, only it wasn'T. And now I feel like nothing ever will be again.
Wyatt: Sounds like steffy shared a lot with you.
Katie: Yeah, another time, she might not have.
Wyatt: Yeah. Well, it's good that you were there for her, then, when you showed up.
Katie: Yeah, I'm glad she had someone to talk to.
Wyatt: Mm. So, liam wasn't there?
Wyatt: That's what I'm talking about. See? Baby furniture.
Katie: Yeah. Yeah. That sounds like him.
Wyatt: Oh, yeah. He's gonna spoil that kid. And steffy's gonna be the most pampered mother-to-be.
Katie: Well, they love each other so much.
Katie: You know, they've always been able to find their way back to each other and overcome anything that gets in their way.
Wyatt: Yeah, so far. This baby's gonna be a whole new challenge for them.
Katie: It may be the hardest challenge ever.
Wyatt: Their life is definitely not gonna be the same, that's for sure.
Katie: Yeah, it's already changed. I just want them to be able to enjoy it.
Katie: Be the happy parents that they always wanted to be.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Hope: Well, it doesn't seem like liam's life has gotten any less dramatic while I was away.
Brooke: You were hoping it would?
Hope: I mean, we spent so many years together, falling in and out of love, that when i left, I thought things might settle down.
Ridge: Well, I think they finally have.
Hope: Well, that's good. I mean, I cherish my history with liam. Part of me will always love him, but, you know, living so far away, being out on my own, it really helped me discover who i am, apart from any man, any relationship. Besides, liam's happily married. I mean, it took a while, but he and steffy were able to make it work.
Bill: You can't give up.
Steffy: Bill, I want to fix this, but I don't even know how. I don't even know where liam is. He walked out on me.
[ Sighs ] What the hell did we do?
Bill: That's the wrong question. You said you want to fix this. That needs to be your focus.
Steffy: I'm focused on my child. What kind of future my baby is gonna have.
[ Sighs ] I can't believe this happened. I was so relieved about the paternity results. I thought, finally, we could put everything behind us. Liam was just so happy when he heard that I was pregnant. I just saw him, and he looked so excited. Now all I see is just pain and disgust. We were so close. We were so close. It was right there. We were finally gonna have the family we've always wanted. But now I've lost everything.
Bill: No. No, you haven'T. I'm gonna fight for you and your family. And liam's gonna come back. And you will raise this child together.
Steffy: But what if he doesn't? He said he's never gonna get past this, that he's never gonna look at me the same. What if I lose liam forever?
