Episode #7776 ~ Steffy is taken aback by Hope's direct approach in discussing their past and present relationships with Liam; Thorne accidentally grabs Katie's phone.
Provided By SuzanneHope: It is hurting to look at you.
Brooke: [ Giggles ] I have had this smile on my face since I became mrs. Ridge forrester.
Hope: It was such a beautiful wedding. I'm so happy for you.
Brooke: Thanks, honey. So, how was steffy?
Hope: Uh, disappointed that liam didn't show.
Brooke: Yeah, ridge and me, too.
Hope: About that... I don't know what to do, mom. I don't know what to think. I felt like I had to be there for her at the wedding. I mean, she was hurting. But, I mean, she slept with her father-in-law. I mean, bill, your ex-husband.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] I know. But she does regret what she did.
Hope: Well, she should. She might have ruined everything. She broke liam's heart.
Brooke: You still care about him, don't you?
Hope: Yes, I do, but... there is a baby on the way. And everyone has to do what's right for that child. Including liam.
Liam: So, congratulations, right? Heard the wedding went well.
Ridge: It was great. We missed you.
Liam: Yeah. I know I disappointed you. I wanted to be there. I wanted to support you and brooke. I still do. I just -- I couldn't bring myself to go. I'm sorry.
Ridge: Yeah, I know, I get it. Got a lot of things to work out, don't you?
Liam: I appreciate you understanding.
Ridge: Steffy's hurting. Your wife and your kid need you. It's time, liam. It's time to step up.
[ Knocking on door ]
Thorne: Hi, katie. Wow, you -- you wake up like that?
Katie: Um, what -- what are you doing here?
Thorne: I'm your neighbor. I thought I'd offer you a ride to forrester.
Katie: Oh, uh, I'm gonna take a personal day. I don't think I'm gonna go into the office today.
Thorne: Are you not feeling well?
Katie: Actually, my boyfriend broke up with me last night.
Thorne: So, you and your mystery guy broke up, huh?
Katie: [ Sighs ] Yeah. I guess so. It was fun while it lasted.
Thorne: You'll have fun again. You might not even have to look very far.
Katie: You know, it's -- it's for the best. It doesn't make it any less difficult or disappointing, but...
Thorne: You want my advice? Let go, move on. Just, uh, you never know what might be waiting for you.
Ridge: Hey. This is your first kid. You and steffy, you're never gonna experience that again. You should be there and feel the heartbeat and feel it kick and go on whatever midnight runs you have to go on and get food for pregnant women.
Liam: You -- you honestly think it doesn't kill me I'm missing that?
Ridge: Then do something!
Liam: What? Forgive and forget that my wife chose -- yes, chose -- to sleep with my father?
Ridge: That's -- [ Groans ]
Liam: I can't do that, ridge. Come on.
Ridge: Bill spencer caused a lot of damage. Steffy's over there, she's grieving over what she did to you, and you're in this... crappy little hotel room with your heart closed.
Liam: I can't help how i feel. What do you want me to do?
Ridge: What I want you to do is keep your heart open to forgiveness. You're justified to feel the way you feel, but the way you're reacting, it's killing steffy. That woman never stopped loving you. Don't discount that.
Brooke: [ Giggles ]
[ Cellphone rings ]
Hope: Steffy? I didn't expect to hear from you. Is everything all right?
Steffy: I was hoping we could talk in person. Where are you?
Hope: At my mom'S.
Steffy: Is it okay if I stop by?
Hope: Sure. Bye.
[ Sighs ]
Brooke: What's going on?
Hope: Steffy wants to see me.
Brooke: But you don't know if the feeling is mutual.
Hope: It's hard, mom. You know, I'm trying to take myself out of it, you know, just focus on the needs of the baby, but...
Brooke: You can't get past what steffy did.
Hope: I just hate seeing liam in so much pain.
Brooke: You still care about him, don't you?
Hope: I've always loved him. I always will.
Brooke: Oh, honey.
Katie: One hot cup of coffee coming right up.
Thorne: Thank you. So, you let him go, huh?
Katie: We let each other go.
Thorne: Look, I'm not gonna lie, I can't say that I'm sorry that you and your no-strings guy broke up.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Thorne: I've been, uh, thinking about our kiss.
Katie: You have? Oh? What about it?
Thorne: I was thinking we should do it again.
Katie: Oh, well, why would you want to do that?
Thorne: Isn't that obvious?
Katie: I mean, why would you want to do that with me? You have all of these, you know, 6-foot-tall supermodels throwing themselves at you, and I see all the women's heads get whiplash as you walk by. So why would you want to kiss little old me?
Thorne: Because you're beautiful, that's why. And sexy as all hell. And now that you're completely free...
Katie: It's been 5 minutes.
Thorne: Well, like I said, completely free.
Katie: [ Chuckles ]
Liam: Why don't you tell me about the wedding? How was that? I'm sure it was nice, right?
Ridge: Yeah, it was. I got to marry the woman of my dreams. A day doesn't get better than that.
Liam: I know -- I know that there were times you and brooke didn't think you'd get there.
Ridge: Of course there were. That's what I'm talking about. We all make mistakes. But when you're younger, you just find it hard to forgive. In a few more years, you can see the bigger picture.
Liam: Ridge, I -- I know where you're coming from. You...
Ridge: Okay, look, I'm -- listen to what I'm trying to say, thank you. True love is a cool thing when it finds you, and when it does, you don't just throw it away. You fight for it. That's what brooke and I did. But, man, we wasted so many years. So what I'm doing now, I'm -- I'm giving you my experience so you can get to where you need to be without wasting all that time. So put all the pain and the hurt that you're feeling, just put that aside and fight for your family. There's a little innocent kid that needs your help right now. We fought against all odds, and brooke and I made it, and I know you will, too.
Brooke: Well, I'll leave you two alone.
Steffy: [ Sighs ]
Hope: Are you okay? I mean, I know you're disappointed about liam.
Steffy: I get why he couldn't be there.
Hope: Yeah, I mean, this whole situation is awful.
Steffy: Oh, god, it's like so crazy. I mean, in the middle of all this, you're back. You're back. And you were involved with liam. You were married to him.
[ Sighs ]
Hope: Yeah, I mean... every time I see him, I'm reminded. But seeing you has brought back memories, too. Some good, some...not so much. But, I mean, we can't pretend it didn't happen. I mean, it's there, permanently between us. Like how you and bill are for liam. I mean, I -- I understand how hard it is to forgive someone you love. I mean, and I do love you, steffy. We're family. But I haven't forgotten. I mean, you manipulated me, you manipulated liam, and you got what you wanted. But now you've broken liam's heart.
Katie: I suppose it was gonna happen sooner rather than later. I mean, I always had this feeling in the back of my head that everything was going to implode. It's just... we laughed a lot, and we had a lot of fun.
Thorne: Obviously I'm not him, but I do have my own skill set.
Katie: [ Chuckles ] Okay, just so I'm clear, what exactly are you offering me? Another no-strings relationship?
Thorne: Well, maybe that's just what you need. It certainly looks good on you.
Katie: [ Sighs ]
Thorne: You never know where it could lead. The forresters and logans have some legendary romances.
Katie: Thorne forrester, are you -- are you coming onto me?
Thorne: Yes, if it's working.
Katie: [ Laughs ]
Thorne: And no if it's not working.
Thorne: I feel like my timing might be a little off.
Katie: Actually, you're doing wonders for my ego. Maybe you are just what I need right now.
Thorne: Well, I'm right here.
Katie: Okay, who are you, and what did you do with the shy, quiet thorne forrester?
Thorne: [ Chuckles ] That guy's long gone. After everything I've been through, I realized I have to be more proactive in life. When I see something I like, I go for it.
Katie: Well, maybe you should, um, go to the office.
Thorne: [ Chuckles ] And leave you all stressed out? What kind of friend would I be?
Katie: You don't have to babysit me.
Thorne: You know what, I was thinking more of a, uh, short-term fix.
Katie: Oh, you were, were you?
Thorne: Yeah. Uh-huh. Turn around.
Thorne: Close your eyes.
Katie: [ Chuckles ] Mm.
Thorne: You don't have to close your eyes.
Katie: Oh... oh, wow. [ Chuckles ]
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Hey.
Brooke: There you are! Where did you go?
Ridge: I went to see liam.
Brooke: Any progress?
Ridge: Not really. I'm gonna check on steffy.
Brooke: She's downstairs talking with hope. You didn't see her?
Ridge: Uh, I came in through the back door. What do you mean, she's talking to hope? About what?
Brooke: Well, I would assume they're talking about liam.
Hope: You slept with liam's father. I don't get it, steffy. I don't understand. I mean, please, help me understand how something like this could ever happen. I just -- your words, your side of the story, I mean... you didn't wind up in bed with bill by accident.
Steffy: Okay. Yeah, um, it all started with the spectras. They were in bill's way, so he had to remove them. His methods went against everything liam stands for. So liam challenged bill, and bill was furious. Their relationship was being torn apart, so I decided to save it.
Hope: And that's when you started spending time with bill?
Steffy: I mean, it was innocent at first. I was just trying to put a father and son back together.
Hope: And you got nothing out of it?
Steffy: Bill was willing to listen to my concerns about liam's attachment to sally. Liam wouldn't listen to me.
Hope: You felt she was a threat?
Steffy: Not at first. At first, she was just annoying, but... then liam staged the sit-in. And he got trapped in that blown-up building with her, and... hope, they kissed. And I was upset, like any wife would be, so I left. I went to the guest house, and bill showed up.
Hope: Why didn't you tell him to leave?
Steffy: Oh, god, I -- I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I just -- I didn't think. I wasn't thinking, and every time I do think about it -- I'm just -- I'm horrified.
Hope: I mean, you don't see some future with bill, do you?
Steffy: What? No. No. Of course not.
Hope: Well, obviously, he appeals to you on some level, otherwise, none of this would have happened.
Steffy: I just want my husband back. And I need your help.
Steffy: Yeah. I need you to help me hold onto my marriage.
Katie: Oh, my god.
Thorne: That better?
Katie: Yes. Amazing.
Thorne: [ Chuckles ] Healing hands, what can I say?
Katie: Yeah, well, no arguments here. I could so easily fall into your arms right now. But you don't want that.
Thorne: No, I -- I want that.
Thorne: You better believe it.
Katie: It would be a total rebound.
Thorne: I can totally work with that.
Katie: Speaking of work...
Thorne: I'd rather stay here.
Katie: Okay, well, thanks.
Thorne: Okay, all right, I'll go, uh, under one condition. That you will have lunch or dinner with me. You choose.
Katie: And face the wrath of the models?
Thorne: What models?
Katie: Okay. Yeah, I'd like that. At some point. In the future. Now you have to go to work.
Thorne: Okay. I'm going.
Thorne: I'm going.
Brooke: I am really tempted to go down there and eavesdrop.
Ridge: I have the most beautiful wife in the world.
Brooke: Aren't you at all curious what hope and steffy are talking about?
Ridge: Nope. That's not what's on my mind right now.
Brooke: Okay, what is?
Brooke: [ Chuckles ]
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Steffy: You've got a text. Liam wants to see you. Look, I -- I got to be honest with you, and I'm not being naive, but I know there's a part of liam that still loves you. And if there was ever a moment to be vulnerable with another woman, it'd be now, and it'd be with you.
Hope: I didn't come home thinking that there'd be a chance for me and liam.
Steffy: I'm just fighting an uphill battle. I'm fighting for my marriage, and you could make it impossible. You're kind. And you're true. And when liam looks at you, it's pure. There's no deception, there's no betrayal. I mean, this is the perfect time to move right in. Is what you're planning to do?
Hope: Is that what you think I'm doing?
Steffy: I don't know. Do you want a life with liam again? Tell me the truth.
