Hope: I can see her when I close my eyes. Can you?
Liam: Yeah. That sweet little face, nose... ten fingers...
Hope: When does the memory fade? Because someday, it will.& Someday we'll think... "did she have blonde hair? Was that birthmark on her left or her right leg?"
Hope: Yes, it was. And we know that today because we held her today, but we'll never get to ever again.
Brooke: Hope's in this room, right, doctor?
Reese: Yes. She's in there with her husband.
Brooke: Oh! There you are. Sweetie!
Brooke: Oh, we got here as soon as we possibly could. Oh, baby! Oh, you look exhausted. How long were you in labor?
Hope: I, um -- I don't know.
Brooke: Well, where is my beautiful little granddaughter, huh? Where are you hiding her?
Bill: Yeah, we want to see the newest spencer.
Brooke: I mean, she can't be in the nursery. This place looks too small for a nursery.
Ridge: Maybe these guys need a little time alone, come on.
Brooke: What do they need time for? Honey? Is everything all right?
Hope: Can I talk to my mom alone?
Liam: Of course. Um, come with me. I'll fill you in.
Reese: If you need anything...
Brooke: What happened? Is it beth?
Hope: She's gone.
[ Gasps ]
[ Exhales sharply ] No! No! No! [ Sobbing ] Oh, god!
Liam: [ Sighs ]
Bill: Liam, what happened?
Ridge: Where's your daughter? Is she being examined? Is she in another room?
Liam: Um... hope did everything she could.
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Bill: Oh, god...
Liam: [ Sobbing ]
Hope: [ Sobbing ]
Brooke: [ Crying ] Oh, honey, I'm sorry! I'm so sorry!
Hope: My baby... my baby!
Brooke: Just let it out. Just let it out.
Hope: [ Sobbing continues ] Mommy!
Brooke: Oh, honey. It's okay.
Liam: You know, I'll never understand why something like this would happen to hope. I mean, she radiates nothing but goodness. Have you ever met someone more meant to be a mother?
Ridge: And she will be one day. Any child would be blessed to be raised by her.
Liam: But why not beth?
Bill: There's no answer to that, liam.
Liam: Well, there should be! There should be reason, there should be meaning in all of this!
Bill: No. No. If you can find any meaning in this at all, let it be that it brought you and your wife closer. Stay by her side. Allow her to be by yours. Cry with her. Be silent with her. Just be what each other needs.
Reese: Not to interrupt, but I have the paperwork.
Liam: Yeah, okay.
Reese: I marked the spots for you to sign.
Liam: Why?& What -- what happened, huh? What is this? What happened in there? Everything was fine! She was happy, the baby was kicking, and now she's just -- you're just telling me she's gone? How -- you tell me, doctor. How does that happen? What happened to my little girl in there?
Hope: I forget what the doctor called it. Placenta...rupture, maybe? I don't -- abruption? I don't know. I don't know. I couldn't process it. All I could hear was silence.
Hope: Newborns are supposed to cry, gurgle, the sound of breath... even that was missing. It was just quiet.
Brooke: Oh, honey. I should have been here for you. I'm sorry.
Hope: No. No, no. I don't wish that on you. I don't wish that on anyone.
Brooke: For you to go through this alone...
Hope: Liam was here. He's the one that told me.
Hope: I wasn't awake when she -- I passed out.
Brooke: Oh, my god, hope. Are you okay?
Hope: No. No, I'm not.
Brooke: No, physically, i mean.
Hope: I don't know, I guess i will be, I just... I tried so hard. And the labor came so fast, and I was pushing, and... and beth was ready to come into this world, and...
[ Sobbing ] I had one job to do! I had one job, and I failed!
Brooke: Oh, stop. Please. Don't say that.
Hope: I did! If I had been awake, I -- I could have done something!
Brooke: You would have witnessed a stillbirth.
Hope: No, I could have done something! I could have done anything! I would have been able to prevent it!
Brooke: Listen to me. You couldn't prevent that. Placental abruption -- is that what you called it? Look, I'm not a doctor, but i have heard of that, and it's rare, but there's not much you can do about it, whether you're awake or not, so, please, honey, don't blame yourself.
Hope: I waited months. I've waited months to see her and to love her... and you think I won't blame myself?
Brooke: I know you will, but I am telling not to.
Hope: Why... why beth? Why? Why my baby?
Brooke: Come here. Come here.
Hope: [ Sobbing ] I landed.
Reese: Why don't we do this later? I didn't mean to rush you.
Bill: I think my son deserves an answer to his question. His daughter died tonight. Can you tell us why?
Reese: Are you asking if it was human error?
Bill: I'm just trying to understand exactly what happened.
Reese: The placenta detached from the womb. It means the baby didn't get the nutrients and the oxygen that she needed. It's very unusual. It only happens --
Liam: Why, though? Why does it happen? I mean, I -- is there something that caused it? I want to know this in case we try again.
Reese: It's not preventable, but the chances of you going through this are very slim. Plus, there are things that you can do to decrease the risk. Hope's ob-gyn will review those with you when and if the time comes.
[ Telephone rings ] I should go check that. Look, I'm a father myself. I can't begin to imagine the pain that you're in. I'm sorry. I'm terribly, terribly sorry.
[ Ringing continues ]
Hope: You remember early in the pregnancy when I was cramping?
Hope: Part of me almost wishes...
Brooke: Oh, honey, you don't mean that.
Hope: I mean, it would have been painful and horrible, but not like this. You know, maybe the mistake was naming her because I got -- I got too confident.
Brooke: Honey, what are you talking about? A lot of people name their babies before they're born. In fact, they name them before they even get pregnant. So, no, it was no mistake. You did nothing wrong.
Hope: Yes, I did! Yes, I did! I obviously did because just hours ago she was alive inside of me, and she was kicking, i could feel her. And I just -- I needed to do the one thing that she needed me to do, which was deliver her into this world safely... what's wrong with me?
Brooke: Honey, nothing! Nothing is wrong.
Hope: I failed my daughter, I failed my husband!
Brooke: No, liam would not feel that way.
Hope: No. No, I should have just stayed in los angeles and put my daughter first instead of this stupid babymoon idea.
Brooke: Will you stop it? Listen to me. You did nothing wrong.
Hope: But my body did.
Hope: Millions of children are born every day, and my body fails me. It lets me carry a baby almost the full term... she was really beautiful. I got to hold her, and I tried to give her all of my love... but she'll never know. She'll never know.
Brooke: She will. She'll know. Trust me. She'll know.
Brooke: I know it feels like you'll never get past this, but you will. You have so many people in your life, sweetheart. We all care about you so much.
Liam: Hey. We're all in this together, okay? You're surrounded by family.
Ridge: No doubt about that.
Bill: We're here for you.
Hope: I just want to go home.
Liam: We're gonna go home, and you're gonna be in bed, you're gonna be in your own bed, and you're gonna get the rest you need.
Hope: [ Scoffs ] Rest? Is that even possible?
Liam: It is with you. Everything's possible. Even recovering from this. I know moving forward is not gonna be easy for either of us, but... we're gonna do it together. We're gonna grieve together, we're gonna lean on each other, we're gonna lean on them. The people in our life who care about us. That's how we're gonna get through it. You know, we've been imagining this life with beth for months now. We built up a whole world in our minds, and... well, it turns out beth isn't coming home. But we are. We are coming home because... because life moves on.
Hope: One life isn'T.
Liam: [ Sniffles ] Yeah. Do you think we could, um, do, like, A... I don't know how to -- I just -- I want to talk to her, you know? I want to, like... I want to say something. Can we do that?&
Hope: I don't think I can do that.
Liam: You don't have to. I'll do it. I'll do it for you. I'll do it for both of us. Can we join hands? Can we -- can we do that, maybe? Beth, I'm your dad. This is your mom. You're not, um -- you're not with us. You're not with us anymore physically, but you're still here, in a way. And, um... even though we wanted so much more... we wanted so much more of you, we can learn to be okay with -- with what you were able to give us. You are so loved. You are so loved by everyone in this room, and you're gonna be in our hearts forever, and please know that. Please know that, my sweet... sweet little angel.
Hope: I know you're there, and I know you're there watching... and I just want to say I am... so, so sorry that you couldn't stay here with us, and know that not a day will go by without me thinking of you. And I feel your spirit, and it is so strong, and I still feel you. I feel you here with me as if you were in my arms. And I feel that and I know that because you were a part of me, and you will always be a part of me. I know you're with us, and even though I can't touch you anymore, I can still tell you every day... that I love you. I love you. I love you.
[ Sobbing ] Mommy loves you. . .
