Taylor: She's so beautiful.
Steffy: [ Exhales softly ] Yeah. Hi, baby girl.
Flo: It looks like she's really taken to you.
Steffy: [ Exclaims ] Yeah? And the father really doesn't want anything to do with her?
Flo: He's completely out of the picture.
Steffy: I can't imagine someone wanting to walk away from you. I-I'm -- I'm sorry. That wasn't judgment. I understand you're doing what's best for your daughter.
Flo: It's okay. I was just trying to clarify, you're not gonna have to worry about the father coming in and staking claims or anything.
Steffy: Well, that's his loss. Isn't that right, sweetheart?
[ Baby cooing ] Yeah...
[ Knock on door ]
Wyatt: Oh. Hey.
Wyatt: Uh, I forgot my phone.
[ Scoffs ]
Liam: Oh, yeah. No worries.
Wyatt: Uh... is hope back yet?
Liam: Uh, she was, but -- but then she went up to the main house to see brooke.
Wyatt: Right. Um... look, man, I-I got to admit, I can't stop thinking about steffy wanting to adopt a-a sister for kelly --
Liam: Okay, okay, okay. But, listen, remember I told you that in confidence, okay? She -- she can't know that right now.
Wyatt: Dude -- [ Stammers ] I know. I'm not gonna -- I'm not gonna say anything.
Liam: A-all right, all right, all right. That being said [Sighs] It looks like steffy's plan is getting closer to being a reality.
Wyatt: Right. She's -- she's got a line on a baby already. Like... you know, I-I wonder.... where she got a baby so fast.
Zoe: To be honest, I wasn't all that thrilled when you first came to L.A.
Reese: [ Sighs ]
Zoe: I was worried, when you showed up out of the blue, that you'd do something to ruin my new life. But it's been nice having you around. And stuff like this, spontaneously having lunch together -- it's been good.
Reese: Well, I'd hoped that proximity would bring us closer together. I missed you. Hey. My sweet tooth just kicked in for real.
[ Zoe chuckles ] Uh, why don't you track down our, uh, waiter so we can order some dessert.
Reese: Yeah, some apple pie. Come on.
Zoe: [ Scoffs ] All right. I will.
Reese: Thank you. Look, you can't --
You are in position to set the rules. My boss has been extremely patient, but he's getting tired of waiting on you to do the right thing. $200k, buckingham, or that pretty daughter of yours pays the price.
Reese: Stop it. Stop it. Stop talking about my daughter, okay? I get your point loud and clear. I'm working on a way to raise the rest of the cash. I just need a little more time.
Yeah, you said this before. Meanwhile, it's ticktock, ticktock.
Reese: I promise I'll be able to pay off part of the debt real soon.
Yeah, well, you better. Unless you want your daughter to inherit the mess you made.
Zoe: Dad? What's going on?
Liam: Taylor has a colleague, I guess, that's helping her facilitate.
Wyatt: Talk about timing.
Liam: Yeah. I don't know, man. Maybe it'S... maybe it's just meant to be.
Wyatt: How do you feel about steffy adopting a baby so soon after, you know... losing beth?
Steffy: Look at you. How beautiful are you?
Taylor: She looks perfect in your arms, like she was born to be there.
[ Baby fussing ]
Steffy: That sweet baby smell.
[ Gasps ] Oh, you're incredible. Oh, I'm honored to meet you. Yeah.
Flo: I hate to do this, but she's getting a little fussy. I should probably put her down.
Steffy: Okay. Okay.
Flo: It's okay. It's time for a nap, anyway.
[ Baby crying ]
Steffy: Oh... sweet dreams, baby girl.
Flo: Oh, it's okay.
Steffy: I didn't want to let her go.
Taylor: It's so obvious.
Taylor: You fell in love with her the minute florence put her in your arms.
Steffy: Oh, my...
[ Chuckles ] As the one who is always trapped beneath the duvet
Liam: I mean, this adoption thing is happening so fast, i really haven't had a moment to process it. But... if I'm being honest, yeah, I-it's a little weird. Maybe everything that happened with beth is -- is coloring that. But the bottom line is, if it's good for kelly, how could I not be supportive?
Wyatt: Well, you can still be supportive and acknowledge ambivalence if that's what you're feeling toward the potential adoption.
Liam: [ Sighs ] I don't know, man. I don't know. I don't know what I'm feeling. I don't -- I don't know what I'm feeling about anything, really. I ju-- I keep going over it, you know -- over it and over it, and I keep asking myself, I-is there something that could have gone differently? Is there some step I missed that would have gotten me to hope sooner?
Wyatt: Dude, seriously? Like, it wouldn't have mattered. That's the thing. I don't know. Call it... fate, I guess. But this just happened. I-it's something that happened. No one can explain why. And I know this doesn't really help you. I know -- I know that none of this helps you when it's your daughter that didn't make it.
Zoe: Dad, is something wrong?
Reese: No. Just ran into an old acquaintance, that's all.
I'm glad we touched base. Be looking forward to hearing from you real soon. Nice to see you, zoe.
Zoe: Uh, what was that?
Reese: What I said.
Zoe: Okay, I'm not naive, and I know you, dad. Something feels off, right, so be straight with me -- are you in some kind of trouble?
Reese: Absolutely not. I'm touched that you're worried, but there's no reason.
Reese: I -- I just want you to take care of yourself, okay? Baby, I don't know what I would do if anything happened to you. When you moved away and we lost touch, I was afraid that I'd lost you. That's why I came here. I wanted to remind you of me. That you have a father that loves you. You never forget that, zoe.
Zoe: I never have. I never will.
Reese: You don't know how much you mean to me. And what I would do to make sure that you are safe and happy.
Taylor: My goodness. She's beautiful.
Steffy: So beautiful!
Taylor: I know.
Steffy: I just felt this kind of connection.
Taylor: I know. I just hope she's ready.
Flo: She went right down.
Taylor: Oh, yeah. I'm sure. The excitement of meeting new people.
Steffy: This must be tearing you up, giving her up.
Flo: I need to do what's right for her, not for me.
Steffy: I respect that about you.
Flo: I don't deserve it.
Steffy: Oh, I-I disagree. Hey, is it possible you could bring the baby out to malibu? To my home?
Flo: You -- you live in malibu?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, it's a wonderful community. And you could see for yourself. I'd like your baby to meet kelly, my daughter. And I'd really like for your baby to meet my daughter's father.
Flo: I don't -- I don't suppose that would be a problem.
Steffy: Okay, great. Yeah, then we'll, uh, coordinate a time. Are you really okay with this?
Flo: Yeah. Especially after seeing you and her together. Are you?
Steffy: Y-yeah. Yes. Absolutely. If this works out, I-I promise to give your baby the best home, full of love, a-a mom who adores her, a family to spoil her, and a sister to love and protect her always.

Liam: I mean, you want to talk about fate, that's -- that's what I don't understand. Did beth have to die? Did she have to die? If so, why? I -- that -- that just doesn't make any sense to me. And now, with... steffy going through with this adoption thing... I -- I j-- I don't -- I don't know.
Wyatt: Keep going.
Liam: I just --
Wyatt: Dude, just keep talking. Let it out. I'm telling you.
Liam: Well -- yeah, I know. Like I said, I don't -- I don't know how I feel about the idea that -- it's not just an idea. It's the reality. ...The reality of another baby in our lives that isn't beth. You know? Like, the sister to kelly that beth was supposed to be. That -- that is -- phew! That's hard to wrap my head around. On the other hand, I don't want to deprive steffy and kelly of anything that would enrich their lives. To give kelly the sister that she would have had if it were beth... that's wonderful.
Reese: Hey. How'd it go with steffy and taylor?
Flo: It went really well.
Reese: You didn't give anything away, did you?
Flo: Don't worry. I played my role. The loving, doting, heartbroken mother who's forced by circumstance to give her precious baby girl up for adoption.
Reese: I know that I've asked you to do a lot.
Reese: I'll make it up to you once we get on the other side of this danger.
Flo: I kind of like the sound of that.
Flo: Mm-hmm. [ Giggles ]
Reese: I thought you would. Okay. Don't keep me in suspense.
Flo: Well, like I said, it -- it went really well. The baby was wonderful, and steffy fell for her like a ton of bricks.
Reese: [ Sighs ] That's good. That is good. [ Chuckles ]
Flo: Mm-hmm. One look at steffy, you can tell that she's rich, so I don't think money is gonna be a problem now or later. She bonded with the baby right away. I -- I'm pretty sure steffy's gonna want to adopt her.
Steffy: Thanks, amelia! Drive safe. Text me when you get home. Is kelly down?
Taylor: Oh, sleeping like a little angel.
Steffy: I can't stop thinking about it. Where we just were. That baby... that baby was heaven-sent.
Taylor: And the immediate connection between you, that was amazing to witness.
Steffy: I can't imagine being florence. Giving up a sweet little baby like that.
Taylor: So, was I right or was I right?
Steffy: Yeah, she was everything you said and then some.
Taylor: [ Chuckles ] I know, and I got to see it with my own eyes, right in front of me, the moment you fell in love with her. Unless I misread it.
Steffy: No. No. It felt like... it felt like I just met my daughter. I want to adopt florence's baby. A migraine hope
Reese: What makes you so sure that steffy wants to adopt the baby? Did she say so?
Flo: Well, she didn't ask for papers to sign on sight, but she does want me and the baby to go to the house in malibu and meet the sister.
Flo: Mm-hmm. Yeah. And steffy said that she would have a wonderful home, and be surrounded by love and family, and... it was really beautiful, actually. Steffy was practically swooning all over her, and fell in love the instant I put the child in her arms.
Flo: You know she didn't put her down the entire time she was here? It was like she was afraid to let her go or something. And steffy's mom was watching all teary-eyed, like they were already a big family. You couldn't have asked for a better first meeting.
Reese: And steffy wants her daughter to meet the baby?
Flo: Yeah, it's -- it's weird. It's kind of like it was meant to be or something.
Reese: It was meant to be.
Steffy: She's still out.
Taylor: Oh. I thought she was up. You were in there with her for quite a while.
Steffy: Yeah, I was -- I was telling her about her little sister. I can see it now. The two of them growing up together, the special bond only sisters have. Look, I don't -- I don't want to get ahead of myself. But that unexplainable connection I had when I held her... it's like, I-I -- I didn'T... I didn't expect it.
Taylor: I'm thrilled for you, steffy. And for that precious little girl, too. She has no idea [Chuckles] How lucky she's about to be.
Steffy: But before it goes any further, I want her to meet kelly, I -- I want her to meet liam. In fact, um... I should give him a call.
[ Dialing ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Liam: Hey, steffy.
Steffy: Can you talk?
Liam: Um... yeah. Yeah, hope is, uh -- hope's at the main house.
Steffy: How is she doing?
Liam: Not great.
Steffy: I'm sorry, liam.
Liam: Thanks. So, uh, what's up? Is -- is kelly okay?
Steffy: Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah, she's, uh -- she's fine. Um... actually, I-I was calling you because... remember I was telling you about the baby that's up for adoption?
Liam: [ Scoffs ]
[ Sniffles ] You think I would forget something like that?
Steffy: I just came from seeing her, and meeting the mom, too.
Liam: Wow, that -- that was fast.
Steffy: I understand if this is a difficult subject for you. I just wanted you to know because you are kelly's father, and I-I want to keep you in the loop.
Liam: Uh, yeah, no, I-I -- I want to be. Um... how did it go?
Steffy: It...was amazing. When I saw her, it --
[Chuckles] It's like... my heart melted. And then when I held her... the strangest thing happened. It felt like... like I-I -- I knew her. I -- [ Sighs ] I-I can't really explain it. Are y-- are you sure you're okay to hear all of this?
Liam: Uh, l-listen [Sighs] Kelly's happiness means everything to me, you know, and I've been -- I've been thinking about this a lot, and... yeah, at first, I was a little wary, just because of everything that happened with beth, but the dad side of me is -- is kind of excited for kelly. I mean, giving her a little sister, that's -- that'S... such a gift. It's a -- it'S... it's a miracle, even.
Steffy: Yes. Yeah, that's -- that's ex-- that's exactly how I feel. It's -- it's like it's a miracle, like she and kelly are -- are meant to be sisters.
Liam: Well, I -- I, um, can't wait to meet her.
Steffy: Well, if it -- if it works for you, um, she's actually gonna come over to the house, check out the surroundings, meet kelly.
Liam: That'd be great. Uh, you just -- you just let me know when and -- and I'll be there. Um... thank you for including me in this. Bye.
[ Cellphone beeps ]
Taylor: What did liam say?
Steffy: He only wants what's best for his baby. Which...doesn't surprise me. Liam's a wonderful father.
[ Sighs ] It's such a shame.
Taylor: Well, he has kelly. That's something to be grateful for.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, and soon...
[ Sighs ]
Taylor: It's okay. It's okay to say it.
Steffy: Oh! I can't stop thinking about her. What a wonderful addition this baby would be to our family. And when I looked into her eyes, that's -- that's what I saw. I saw family. Connection. Belonging. I truly believe that this baby was meant to be kelly's little sister.
