[ Indistinct conversations ]
Sally: You okay?
Sally: You lost your niece.
Wyatt: Yeah, but that doesn't even compare to what liam and hope are going through.
Sally: Wyatt, it's not a contest. You get to feel your own pain.
Katie: I just wish there was something, anything we could do to make this better.
Brooke: You both being here today really did help.
Donna: Please let hope know that she can count on us.
[ Sighs ] And we're here for you, too, sis. Nobody's forgetting that you lost your granddaughter.
Brooke: I still can't believe it.
Donna: [ Sighs ]
Liam: You know, we can go soon, if you want. I mean, people have been leaving, so we're in the clear.
Hope: Well, it was nice of everyone to come by.
Steffy: Hey. Can I get you anything?
Hope: Uh... [ Sighs ] No, thanks.
Steffy: If there's anything you need, hope, if you need to just get out of the house, take a walk on the beach, I'm here.
Hope: I might actually take you up on that.
Steffy: I'm sorry. I'm so terribly sorry.
Hope: I know.
Xander: How do you even come back from a loss like this?
Maya: [ Sighs ] I guess you just... love each other through it, let friends and family help you. Accept their help.
Zoe: Yeah. Let some time go by, till they can breathe again. Uh, excuse me.
Maya: Yeah, of course.
Xander: I mean, it's just awful.
Maya: Oh, I know.
Zoe: Hey, brooke.
Brooke: Oh [Sighs] Zoe. I-I want to thank you for being here for hope.
Zoe: Of course. I just wanted to let you know that my father did everything he could for hope and the baby. He feels terrible that he couldn't have saved beth. And, um, he wanted me to pass along his condolences.
Brooke: I appreciate that. But, just like hope, I don't fully understand what happened that night. So I would like to have a conversation with reese at some point.
Taylor: [ Sighs ] Can't remember the last time I was held, or someone looked at me with that kind of desire.
Maya: Just know we're here for you no matter what. Whatever you need.
Steffy: [ Sighs ] I feel so awful for hope. When she said she held beth after -- oh!
Taylor: Losing a child is unbearable no matter what age. No parent should have to go through that. I'm just so grateful for you and thomas. And now kelly and douglas. Every day, I'm thankful.
Steffy: I know.
Liam: Hey. [ Sighs ]
Taylor: Excuse me.
Steffy: I know I keep asking, but... do you need anything? Anything at all?
Liam: Um... maybe just... just take care of...kelly. Just make nothing happens to our -- to our baby.
Steffy: Hey. She's fine.
Steffy: Nothing's gonna hurt kelly.
Liam: Yeah, I know. I may want to see her a little more.
Steffy: Yeah, of course. Whenever you want. For as long as you want.
Liam: I just don't know what I'm gonna do without beth.
Steffy: It's o-- it's okay. It's okay. It's okay.
[ Sighs ] It's okay.
Liam: [ Sighs ] I don't know. I was -- I was just... blindsided.
Steffy: Anyone would have been.
Liam: And you know me. You know, I-I -- I do that thing where I, like, calculate the odds of everything. It's just -- it's just how my brain works. But... with beth, it was like, I only saw one outcome. You know? [ Scoffs ] Hope goes into labor, I call dr. Phillips, I grab the bag, we drive to the hospital. Maybe she has some contractions on the way, but we get there with plenty of time. And dr. Phillips is in and out of the room, I'm feeding hope ice chips, and then... the big moment. And beth is born. And she's strong and healthy and beautiful. And...this... I just... never calculated for this. So, what is -- is that stupidity? Is it arrogance?
Steffy: No. No, no, no.
Liam: What is that? Why would I --
Steffy: No, no, no, no. It's not. It's not. One day, when you've healed some, you'll be grateful for the memories you had with beth. However short.
Xander: Hanging in there?
Xander: Look, these are never easy. E-especially considering the --
Zoe: I just feel like I have to keep defending my dad. I know that no one's even outright blaming him...
Xander: I'm sure that they know reese is a good man. And I'm sure that they know it was very difficult for him to lose hope's baby.
Reese: Taylor. I'm glad you called. You still over at the forresters'?
Taylor: Uh, yeah. I'm about to leave. You still want to see me?
Reese: Very much. Uh, you mind coming by my apartment?
Taylor: Well, yeah. I-I can. Sure.
Reese: I'll text you the address.
Taylor: Okay. See you soon.
Hope: I feel so empty. You know, for months, I had this life inside of me. I could feel beth changing and growing and... not this. Not this nothing. How can nothing hurt so much?
Brooke: You'll always love beth, honey. She'll just be a part of your life in a different way. You have a guardian angel now.
Katie: And you have us.
Donna: It's gonna be a challenging time. But we're gonna help you get through this. I promise.
Taylor: I-I don't mean to interrupt, I just -- I wanted to say goodbye. Please know, again, how sorry I am. No one should ever have to go through this.
Hope: Thank you for coming, taylor.
Taylor: Please [Stammers] Call me if you need anything. You have my number.
Brooke: I'll walk you out. Thank you [Sighs] For being here. Hope really appreciated it. We all did.
Taylor: I was touched to be included.
[ Sighs ] This loss for your family is unspeakable. I'm so sorry. (Vo) for a nasty cold,
Liam: It's just crazy, you know? Everything changes in an instant.
Wyatt: I know.
Liam: And my little girl is just... just gone.
Wyatt: I-I -- I don't even know what to say. Except that I love you, and I'm here for you, all right?
Wyatt: You got friends and family. They should be everything right now. So, seriously, if you and hope need anything...
Sally: We'll have you guys over whenever you guys are ready, just the four of us. We can sit, we can talk. Or not. You know, whatever you guys need.
Liam: Thank you.
Hope: Our daughters were supposed to share a name. Elizabeth.
Maya: And they still do. Lizzy and beth.
Hope: [ Sob ] I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Maya: No, hope. You don't have to apologize for anything. You get to cry. You get to scream. Whatever you feel. Just know how many people love you. Including me.
[ Hope sobs ] And rick. Okay? He's just sick over this.
[ Sniffles ]
Liam: Thank you for being here, maya.
Maya: There's nowhere else I'd be.
Xander: There you are. I was wondering where you ran off to.
Zoe: Oh, yeah. I just didn't want to start texting in the middle of the room.
Xander: Well, what couldn't wait?
Zoe: My dad.
Xander: You're really worried about him, aren't you?
Zoe: He's been an ob/gyn since before I was born. Unfortunately, this isn't his first stillbirth that he's had to deal with. But it's different this time. He's taking hope's especially hard. I've never even seen him like this.
Xander: You'll help your dad get through this. And you two will be closer in the end.
Zoe: He's my dad, and I love him. And I can't stand seeing him hurt like this.
Xander: You're a really good daughter. And he's lucky to have you. So am I.
[ Game chimes ]
Reese: [ Sighs ] Okay. Okay.
[ Knock on door ] Taylor! [ Chuckles ] It's good to see you. Thanks for coming.
Taylor: Yeah. I-I wanted to see you.
Reese: Come on in. Come on in.
Taylor: So, uh... so this is home?
Reese: Yeah. It's a bit modest, but the best that I could do short-notice. Would you like some water?
Taylor: Uh, no. I'm fine.
Reese: Oh, please. Make yourself at home. Sit.
Taylor: Okay. Thank you.
Reese: Uh, the gathering at the forresters'... I'd imagine it was rather sad.
Taylor: Oh, it was. It was. But also very lovely and touching.
Taylor: Well, she's devastated. But strong. [ Sighs ] She's surrounded by family and friends.
Taylor: The same.
Reese: And steffy was there?
Taylor: Yes. There was nothing that would keep her away. She's heartbroken, too. How are you coping?
Reese: I'm not the one anybody should be worried about.
Taylor: Well, I'm sorry, but you're gonna have to let me worry about you a little bit.
Reese: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Then, I am humbled.
Taylor: Hope's stillbirth did affect you, too. I know you're still struggling with what happened that night on catalina.
Liam: Hey, brooke, thank you for, uh -- for pulling all this together. I think... I think it helped. For me, at least.
Brooke: I'm glad.
Hope: I mean, no one really knows what to do when something like this happens, or what to say. I mean, what can you say? So you just -- you gather together, and you try to find strength in family.
Brooke: And did it help?
Brooke: I don't know. I didn't think it would. To be honest, mom, I was kind of dreading today, having to face everyone and re-live this heartbreak over and over again.
Brooke: Honey, I'm sorry. You should have said something.
Hope: No. I'm glad that I didn't say anything. Because everyone being here, surrounded by all their support and love, I think it did help. I think I...did find some strength. I just hope it sticks, because I'm gonna need it for... a really long time.
Brooke: We all have more strength to give. All of us. Especially me. So if both of you need anything, please don't hesitate to ask, okay?
Hope: I miss beth.
[ Sobbing ]
Brooke: Oh, honey...
Liam: Me too.
Hope: I just -- I never want to forget her.
Liam: You never will.
Hope: [ Sniffles ] I wanted to know her so badly.
[ Sobs ]
Liam: It's, um... it's unthinkable, losing a child fast, you know, like that. But... she's still here, you know. Not physically, but... we're gonna move on. We're gonna grieve. We're gonna heal. And we're gonna start a family, the one that we always planned, and beth can't not be a part of that. She is our future child's big sister.
Hope: But she's supposed to be here. We're supposed to watch her go through the stages of life. And she only made it to one, and she was already gone.
[ Sobbing ] And why? Why, liam? Why did we have to lose our baby girl?
[ Wails ]
Taylor: It's okay. Just looking at you, I can see you've been through a lot. What happened that night on catalina, of course it affected you.
Reese: Nothing I'm feeling compares to the loss hope and her husband suffered. I wish I could have done more.
Taylor: You were up against a lot. No staff. No power. Early labor. Unexpected medical conditions that led to a crisis. Don't beat yourself up. You did the best you could.
Reese: Thank you for saying that.
Taylor: I'm sorry if I sound like I'm talking to a patient.
Reese: No, you sound fine.
Taylor: I just -- I-I care.
Reese: Well, obviously the feeling's mutual. That's why I asked you to come. Because you were right. What happened... had a profound effect on me.
Taylor: That night changed you, I'm sure.
Reese: In ways I don't even quite yet understand.
Taylor: Because you're a doctor, a healer, and it hurts to lose a patient. Especially a newborn.
Reese: [ Sighs ] That little girl was so wanted. And I think about all the children in the world who are abused, neglected, abandoned. That baby, beth, she was gonna be welcomed by two parents who were already crazy in love with her.
[ Snorts ] It's just so sad.
Taylor: And you experienced that loss with them. That's why you called me -- because you need a friend. And you've got one. Okay? I'm here. I'm here for you.
