Bill: Still? How much longer are they gonna keep everything grounded? Yeah, of course I understand, but that -- fine. Call me when you find out otherwise. You have any seasickness medicine around here?
Ridge: Not that I know of, no.
Bill: Well, find some. Maybe I can get us a boat after all.
Ridge: I thought you tried boats already.
Bill: Well, I'm gonna try again. I'll try 8,000 times if I have to.
Ridge: At least liam is on his way, and hope won't be alone.
Brooke: If he makes it there on time. Hope could have already had her baby.
Hope: Doctor? Doctor! You made it.
Liam: Wasn't about to let a little wind stop me.
Hope: [ Chuckles ] I'm just glad you're here. And beth? I had the baby?
Liam: You did.
Hope: I didn't even see her. I passed out, I guess. Did you -- were you --
Liam: I was, uh -- I was in the air. I got here a few minutes after, and, uh... dr. Buckingham's been filling me in. You were so brave.
Hope: It was the scariest thing I've ever had to do. It was so windy. That storm, and then... and then the power went out. I was in so much pain and missing you. None of that matters now. Beth's here. [ Giggles ] We have our daughter. We have our daughter, liam.
Bill: No! Not tomorrow. Tonight. Yeah, you do that. Call me!
Ridge: Boats are still being docked.
Bill: [ Sighs ] I don't suppose anybody wants to kayak.
Brooke: Well, at this point, yes. To get to my daughter, I would do anything.
Hope: I was so weak, but the doctor kept telling me to push, and, as exhausted as I was, i knew I had to give it my all. And that's the last thing i remember, was pushing so hard, and then... and then darkness. But I got her here. It was enough.
Liam: You did great.
Hope: She's beautiful, right? You've seen her?
Liam: Um, briefly. I, um -- I came to see you after talking to the doctor.
Hope: Can you believe it? We're parents. All the planning and anticipation for this day, and it's finally here. Okay, so, tell me, does she look like you or me or a combination of both?
Liam: Um, she looks like, um, like an angel. Like a little angel.
Hope: [ Giggles ] Well, where is she?
Liam: She -- uh, in the other room. She's in the other room with the doctor.
Hope: Is he doing tests, or...?
Liam: I don't -- uh, I don't know.
Hope: But I want to see her. I want to see our little girl. I switched to miralax for my constipation.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Nothing! Why won't she write back?
Ridge: Well, she's in labor, so you maybe can cut her some slack.
Bill: She's probably just not responding to text messages right now.
Brooke: Thank you both for being reassuring in your own ways.
[ Sighs ] I just feel so helpless, you know?
Ridge: Come on.
Brooke: I'm stuck here while my daughter is stuck there, bringing her baby into the world. And I just feel so helpless. I just want to put my arms around her and around beth.
Hope: I want to see beth.
Liam: I know, um... but I asked the doctor for just a few minutes with you first, just the two of us.
Hope: Oh! Are you giving us our babymoon?
Hope: You know, the reason we came to catalina, our babymoon. One last adventure before beth.
[ Giggles ] Although, she did have other plans, didn't she? So that's what this is, isn't it? Some alone time with your wife before our lives change forever. I'm so lucky to have you. I'm so lucky, especially after everything we've been through, when you think about it -- falling in love at such a young age, coming close so many times, things getting in the way, almost losing each other. I mean, I -- I moved halfway around the world. But we overcame all of it. And we always found our way back to each other. Always. Can you believe in a million years that we would be on catalina about to meet our daughter?
Liam: No. No, I don't suppose I did.
Hope: [ Gasps ] Oh! I had an idea, and I hope you like it. So, we agreed on a first name, but we never came up with a middle one. How's avalon? For the city she was born in? A little reminder about this crazy, wonderful night in catalina. What do you think?
Liam: I think that's -- I think that's lovely.
Hope: It is, isn't it? Elizabeth avalon spencer. We did it. She's here. [ Giggles ] A living, breathing version of us. So... I want to see her. I want to hold her. Can you, um -- can you tell dr. Buckingham that I'm ready? It's been too long, liam, and i want to hold those little fingers and hear her voice and...
[ Giggles ] I just -- I want to hold her forever and never let her go. I'm ready to meet our daughter.
Bill: Liam isn't responding to texts, either.
Ridge: Well, that's probably good news. He's probably sitting there with hope, and they're admiring their new baby.
Brooke: All right. One more message. "Update me when you're able. I'm worried about you. Can't wait to meet beth." Okay. Well, now I just wait, right?
Ridge: It's gonna be fine.
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Yeah. I know. I know. I just want to be there. My little girl's about to have her baby.
Ridge: She's gonna be a mother, huh? And what a mother she'll be. She learned from the best.
Hope: Please, liam. I'm ready to meet my baby.
Liam: Well, wait, no -- wait, wait, wait.
Hope: Aren't you?
Liam: No, it's okay. Hey. Lay back down, lay back down. Just --
Liam: I just, um... I just wanted to drink you in, the glow around you, and just...
Hope: Well, you can also drink it in with our baby in my arms.
Liam: I need to say this, and I need -- I need you to hear how proud I am of you. You're so brave. You're so strong. You're stronger than I'll ever be, hope.
Hope: Are you just saying this because I went through it alone? Giving birth? Please, I don't -- I don't want you to feel guilty.
Liam: Yeah, well, part of me always will.
Hope: No, don'T. Don't, seriously. I appreciate you calling me strong, but...
Liam: Can you do me a favor? Don't minimize what you just did, what you just went through because it was amazing. And you should celebrate it, and you should remember it, and you should know that we're in this together, I'm by your side, and there's nothing that we can't handle together. You know that, right?
Hope: Yeah, I do. I do. As a couple and as parents. We got this. And I'm not naive, you know, i know it's not gonna be all fun and games. There's gonna be tough times, but that's okay. That's okay because whenever one of us is feeling weak or down or overwhelmed, the other one will step up.
Liam: And sometimes... rarely... we'll be both be weak. And, you know, we might wonder, like, how do we move on? Those are the times when we step up for each other, right?
Hope: I'm certain of that, too. Look, sweetie, if you -- if you're just doing this to stall the doctor because you feel like you need to make things right with me, there's nothing to make right. Okay? Hey. Hey. You don't control the weather, okay? You did everything you could to get here. And I know that. I know that. I don't blame you at all.
Liam: I believe that. Goodness just radiates from you. Have I ever told you that?
Hope: Yeah. From you, too. And I guess that means that beth is just destined to be a troublemaker then, right? To test us.
Liam: I doubt it.
Hope: Tell me about her.
Liam: Um... she's beautiful. Tiny little fingers, tiny little toes...
Hope: You know, I'm surprised I don't hear her out there. You said she's just in the other room, right, with the doctor?
Hope: Well, I mean, whatever tests needed to be done should be done by now. It shouldn't be taking this long. So could you tell dr. Buckingham that I'm ready to see beth? I just -- I... I want to see her. What's wrong? Liam, please, you're scaring me. What's wrong? No, I need -- I need to see beth right now. I need to see her right now, so where is she?
Hope: Where is she? Where is she?! Where is she?! I want to see beth! I need to see our daughter! You always pay your insurance on time.
Bill: Okay, great, we'll leave now and meet you there. Thanks. Flights are back on.
Bill: Official grounding's been lifted. I have a helicopter on the way over right now. We'll be catalina within the hour. Let's go.
Ridge: Bill. Thanks for doing this for us.
Bill: Yeah, well, it's not every day your child brings a baby into the world, right? We have to be there, especially you, brooke.
Brooke: I've raised an incredible woman. She's been an inspiration to so many. She's gonna be a great mother and a great role model.
Ridge: Come on.
Brooke: Little beth is gonna be so lucky.
Hope: Answer me! Where is she? Why can't I see her?!
Liam: Shh. Listen. Listen. I know, I know. Listen!
Hope: What's wrong? No!
Liam: Stop! Stop! What are you doing? Hope, stop it! You have to rest!
Hope: Because you didn't tell me, I will find her myself!
Liam: Listen, you have to rest. You have to recover right now. Stop.
Hope: Recover from what? What am I recovering from?
Liam: She didn't make it.
Hope: No... no, don't say that.
Liam: I'm so sorry.
Hope: Why would you -- you saw her. You saw her. You just -- no. No. She's fine. She's fine. I need to see her. Can you go get her, liam? I need to see her. She's fine.
Liam: Okay, listen, listen, listen. I will bring her to you.
Hope: She's fine.
Liam: I will bring her to you, you will see her, but I -- you -- you have to be prepared because I was not prepared.
Hope: She's alive. She is alive. I didn't carry her all this time, I didn't love her all this time for her to not make it.
Liam: I know. I know.
Hope: No... no! No!
Liam: I'm so sorry.
Hope: No! Dr. Buckingham! Dr. Buckingham! I need to see my baby!
[ Sobbing ] Is that beth? Beth! Is that --
Liam: That's her.
Hope: [ Sobbing continues ] She needs her mommy. She needs her mommy!
[ Sobbing ]
Reese: It was a -- a placental abruption. I did everything I could.
Hope: [ Sobbing ] No... no! [ Cries ] No!
[ Sobbing continues ]
