Steffy: What are you... come in. Come in.
Hope: I'm sorry I didn't call first.
Steffy: Uh, no, it's, um... it's fine. Um... how are you?
Hope: I'm good. Europe was life-changing, but I'm glad I'm home. You know, I missed everyone. Including you. I saw liam, and he told me he moved out. I'm concerned, steffy, for both of you.
Wyatt: Thanks for responding to my text. I know you're probably not doing much of that.
Liam: Yeah, I haven't felt very sociable lately.
Wyatt: Yeah. Have you seen your wife lately?
Liam: Not today.
Wyatt: Don't you think she's probably worried about you?
Liam: You know, if you're hungry, I think I have a -- maybe there's a room service menu. Or I can order takeout, too.
Wyatt: Okay. That's your subtle way of telling me you don't want to talk about the state of your marriage.
Liam: That's what I like about you, wyatt. You're quick.
Wyatt: I'm worry about you, bro. What happened to you was just -- it was insane. And don't tell me there isn't a reason to worry because look at you. Like, you're a wreck. And understandably so. I -- I still can't believe dad did that to you.
Liam: He is not a good person. I just hope you don't have to find out the way I did.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, that's a conversation for another day. I came here to talk to you about you and steffy. That's the pressing issue here, isn't it? Like, you -- you have a child on the way. Like, that's supposed to be a blessing. You don't want to miss that, right? So for the sake of that baby, like, can't you -- can't you just, like, try and work things out with steffy?
Liam: Wyatt, my marriage is over. I already gave her annulment papers.
Sally: I'm so glad you stopped by. I miss seeing you guys every day.
Darlita: Me, too. So, what's the plan?
Sally: Well, I'm still working on it. I'm not holding my breath for bill to hold true to his promise, but spectra will rise again. I just am not really quite sure how at the moment.
Darlita: Well, if there's a way, I'll know you'll find it. What about the other plan?
Sally: What do you mean?
Darlita: Trying to convince yourself that you're not in love with liam?
Sally: Who said I was in love?
Darlita: You did. When you were trapped under that rubble with liam, before you kissed... look, sally, those feelings don't just go away. And it must be hard, liam being married to steffy, and all.
Sally: Actually, uh, now that you bring that up... I'm not sure how long that marriage is gonna last.
Darlita: Whoa. Back up. Liam and steffy are having problems?
Sally: All I know is that liam was upset enough to move out.
Darlita: Liam left steffy??
Sally: Look, I don't know if it's permanent. I don't know, but if liam and steffy are over...
Darlita: I can finish that sentence. You'd want a chance with him.
Wyatt: Annulment papers? That's quite the statement.
Liam: Yeah, well, it wasn't for effect. How do you stay married to someone you don't trust? That you can't even touch?
Wyatt: You just -- you got to give it a little time. I mean, let your feeling settle. Like, you're walking around all wounded. I just -- I don't think it's the best idea to act out of impulse.
Liam: I know my own mind, wyatt.
Wyatt: But there's a kid involved now. Like, if you could -- if you could just look past what --
Liam: Could you? Honestly? I mean, if every time you looked at your wife, you saw...dad's hands all over her, could you get past it?
Wyatt: No, I -- I couldn'T.
Liam: Well, see, I wish i could forgive steffy. And, you know what, if it were any other man, like, anyone else on the planet, then maybe i could get past it over time. But this is dad. Please tell me you know where I'm coming from.
Wyatt: I do!
Liam: Okay, then you understand why I don't want to keep talking about it.
Wyatt: Okay. Okay. So, what do you want to talk about, then?
Liam: I don't know. Oh. Hope.
Wyatt: Hope what?
Liam: No. Hope. Logan. She's back.
Steffy: You've seen liam?
Hope: He's pretty upset right now. No offense, he kind of looks a lot like you.
Steffy: Uh, so, you just, like, bumped into him, or...?
Hope: I texted him.
Steffy: And he responded?
Hope: Yeah, you know, I was just letting him know I'm back in town, and seeing how he's been.
Steffy: So you and liam met up?
Hope: Yeah. And after we talked, you know what my takeaway was? That no matter what happened or how upset he is, he still loves you.
Steffy: I never meant to hurt him.
Hope: I'd like to help, if i can.
Steffy: I don't see how.
Hope: Well, why don't you tell me what happened, and we can go from there?
Darlita: You don't have to be all guilty about your feelings with me. If liam breaks up with steffy, you want a chance with him, and you deserve it after all the stuff you guys have been through together.
Sally: All right. Look, I'll admit it, okay? Yes, I've thought about a future with liam, but... I don't know, I mean, I feel like just -- things keep getting in the way.
Darlita: What? We're off bill spencer's radar now that he has what he wanted, and, you know, if there's a divorce, steffy's out of the picture.
Sally: Yeah, but a possible new obstacle just showed up. Hope logan.
Darlita: Hope for the future hope logan?
Sally: Yeah, and let's not forget liam's ex-wife. I don't know, she's back in L.A.
Sally: That's the question, isn't it?
Wyatt: Wow, uh... how long is hope staying in town?
Liam: Uh, a while, it sounds like. I mean, she said italy was great, but she missed home.
Wyatt: Hmm. What's she up to these days?
Liam: Work, volunteering. Humanitarian stuff.
Wyatt: Not surprised.
Liam: She still has that light, you know?
Wyatt: I remember it well.
Liam: Wyatt, I was -- I was listening to her, and -- and all I was thinking was that hope wouldn't do what steffy did.
Wyatt: Wait, so you didn't -- you didn't tell her about steffy and dad?
Liam: No. No. God no. I -- I can'T. It's physically painful to say the words.
Hope: I don't want to be in your business, but I could see liam hurting like you are, and if there's anything I can do to help you and him during this separation...
Steffy: I don't want to look at it like it's a separation. It feels too permanent. This isn't the end for us. Like I said, liam needs space.
Hope: Okay, then, I guess you should give it to him.
Steffy: I'm sorry, I didn't mean to be all snippy. I know you're being sincere.
Hope: No, it's okay. I got a thick skin.
Steffy: Since when?
Hope: Uh, being away changed me.
Hope: I'm more grounded, i think, a little wiser, less naive, but, you know, I didn't come here to talk about all that. I just wanted you to know that I'm around if you need anything.
Steffy: I appreciate it. I'm sure liam does, too.
Hope: Yeah, it sounds like he needs a friend.
Steffy: Look, there's something you should know. I'm pregnant.
Sally: All right, let's see what we've got.
Darlita: Lot of accomplishments.
Sally: [ Sighs ] Yeah, i heard she's a real do-gooder, you know, big on charities and environmental issues.
Darlita: Like liam. I mean, she created hope for the future.
Darlita: Brooke's daughter, of course.
Sally: She's dynamic, successful.
Darlita: It says they got married in italy.
Darlita: I remember that. Yeah, that was all over the internet, in a quaint little village with all of these people. Straight out of a fairy tale. God, they had a really romantic relationship.
Sally: Okay, hello, whose side are you on?
Darlita: [ Chuckles ] Sorry.
Sally: [ Scoffs ]
Liam: It was like rain clouds in here, man, and for one brief moment, the sun came out. That's hope. I mean, she -- she actually succeeded in getting my mind off of dad and steffy for a second. She even made me laugh.
Wyatt: Yeah, she, uh, has that effect on people.
Liam: Well, I needed it.
Wyatt: Well, she's a very special woman, but, uh, she's not your wife, remember? You see what I'm getting at here.
Liam: I do. Let's not.
Wyatt: Okay, look. I'm not trying to minimize what you're going through with dad and steffy here, okay? It was a heinous betrayal on both sides. And if the circumstances were different, I'd be the one telling you, "dude, just walk away." But this isn't just about you and steffy. There is a child on the way that deserves to grow up the way that we didn'T. With two loving parents, there for it every single day through the scraped knees and the new discoveries. This -- this kid was conceived in love. Right? Can't you find your way back to that at all?
Liam: I do love steffy, and I -- I wish this just went away overnight. It does not work that way.
Wyatt: And people make mistakes, as ugly as they are sometimes, but, dude, she's gonna be the mother of your child. Like, can't you just find a way to open up your heart and try to forgive her?
Hope: You're pregnant? Steffy, that's wonderful! You and liam have wanted a family for so long!
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. After everything, who would have thought?
Hope: Okay, but wait. This really doesn't make sense. I mean, why would liam not be here if you're pregnant? I mean, don't you guys want to work through this?
Steffy: I want to, but, uh... it's, um...
Hope: Look, I know how strong you and liam are as a couple, how much you've overcome. And now you have this wonderful reason to stay together, but instead of fixing things -- I mean, you're here all alone, and he's living in some hotel... it has to be something serious if he's not here. Steffy. What did you do?
Steffy: Hope, I appreciate your concern. You've been really sweet, but, uh... you don't have to worry. Liam and I, we've gotten through the hard times, and this won't be any different.
Hope: But it is different. I mean, there's a child involved.
Steffy: We'll have our family. Look, you -- you said you wanted to help.
Steffy: You said that liam's staying at a hotel. What hotel? If you could just tell me --
Hope: Steffy, he is staying in the dekota. It's not exactly a place you'd expect liam to be.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] Thank you. It's, uh, really good to see you, hope.
Hope: Yeah. And I'm sure it won't be the last. I'm sticking around for a while.
Steffy: For how long?
Hope: The foreseeable future.
Steffy: That's great.
Wyatt: How many times have you told me that you wanted a family? Well, now you have that. Prayers are answered. Like, what steffy did was completely wrong, I know that, but I'm just saying, like, maybe you can find a way to rise above it, like turn off that white noise, that ego, the damaged pride, or whatever because that -- that is nothing compared to what you're about to face next. Like, you -- you and steffy, you even said yourself, you love steffy, right? Build on that. Make that the foundation of your new family. Forgive your wife. Don't do it for steffy, or for you. But do it for that innocent kid.
Sally: What are we doing?
Darlita: Cyber-stalking hope logan.
Sally: Okay, well, it's pathetic.
Darlita: It was your idea.
Sally: But it's your job to stop me. Look, okay, I'm not gonna obsess over hope. She's out of the running, too, if liam and steffy get through this.
Darlita: But... what if they don't?
Sally: Then liam will need time to process whatever happened, and, yeah, if he does move on, in due time, I would like to be the one that he moves on with.
[ Knocking on door ]
Liam: Forgetting something...
Steffy: Liam, please, don't close the door. Please. Please don'T.
Liam: How did you find me?
Steffy: It doesn't matter. I, uh... I have something I want to say.
Liam: You don't think it's all been said?
Steffy: You don't have to say anything. You don't -- you don't have to respond. Look, I... I know you're devastated right now, and I know you probably hate me. I mean, I -- I hate myself, too. I hate that I jeopardized our future and our family. This should be the happiest time of our lives. I have your baby inside of me. We should be living this miracle. I know I robbed you of that joy, and I'm gonna regret that for the rest of my life. Liam, it kills me. It kills me that our innocent child is gonna suffer because i made a horrible mistake. I'm sorry. Liam, I'm so, so sorry, and if you come home, I will make it up to you every day if you just give me the chance, and you give our child a chance to grow up with two loving parents. You gave me those annulment papers. I can't sign them. I can'T. Because it means I'm giving up on us, and I'm not gonna do that because what we have is so strong, and I'm gonna hold onto that until you come home.
Liam: I don't know what you want me to say, steffy.
Steffy: Liam, I am consumed with guilt, I -- I can't -- I can't sleep. I have to force myself to eat because of the baby. All I do is hope and pray that you'll say those three words -- "I forgive you." "I forgive you."
