Zoe: Tell me what's going on now.
Flo: Okay. Well, a possibly unstable woman keeps breaking into my apartment, and this time, she asked me to strip down to my underwear, which is absolu--
Zoe: This is my father's place, so I have every right to be here. And why won't you answer me? What's going on, and how is steffy's baby involved?
Flo: I already told you. I had a baby, and I gave her up for adoption.
Zoe: You don't even know the name of your doctor or the birth date of your baby, and you look like that. So what's really going on, and what does it have to do with my father?
Liam: Do you want me to turn these back on?
Steffy: No, no. It's fine.
Liam: Okay. 'Cause I kind of felt like we were intruding.
Steffy: You think you should be in there with her?
Liam: I-I don't think so. This could be good for her. You know, time alone with a newborn. Time that -- that she didn't get to have with beth. Nothing is gonna replace the child we lost. And spending time with phoebe may not erase the pain, but it could soothe it. Maybe... maybe that's what hope needs right now.
Hope: That's all right.
[ Shushing ] You should try to go to sleep now, though, okay? Although I don't really want to put you back in your crib. Are you comfortable here in my arms? Huh? You know, your mommy is so lucky. So lucky.
Sally: Feels good.
Sally: Wrapped in your arms like this.
Wyatt: Uh, it feels good, but you -- you kind of sound depressed.
Sally: Do I?
Sally: [ Sighs ] I guess I just feel guilty.
Sally: Being happy knowing what hope and liam are going through.
Steffy: Is it healthy, though? When you talk about hope bonding with phoebe?
Liam: I get how that came off. I didn't mean anything weird. Like, obviously hope knows she's your baby.
Steffy: It's just... hope's mind knows that beth is gone, but her body doesn'T.
Liam: Yeah. These hormones are raging through her... as she's holding my daughter.
[ Door opens ]
Steffy: Hey. How is she?
Hope: Heh... she fell right back asleep in my arms. She was so peaceful. It's just like how I imagined it would be with -- with beth.
[ Sighs ] Heh. Honestly, I-I -- I was kind of shocked when I heard you adopted. I didn't know how you could handle having another baby in the home with kelly still so young, but, oh, my gosh, I get it now. I mean, holding her, spending time with her, breathing her in, I would have done the exact same thing. I would have done almost anything to make that baby girl my own.
Flo: Do I need to do a little twirl for you or can I go back into the bedroom and get changed into some real clothes?
Zoe: I suppose I was a bit rude.
Flo: A little bit.
Zoe: I apologize, okay? I didn't mean to embarrass you. But I just need to figure out what's going on.
Flo: Okay, well, let me give you a little bit of help here. I exercise a lot. Couple that with great genetics, and, voilą, my body just really bounced right back. It's really not that hard to understand.
Zoe: So, you just gave birth, and then beelined right for my father? Yeah, that makes me wonder...
Flo: Wonder what?
Zoe: You're still living in his apartment.
Zoe: Even though he's gone back to london.
Flo: What are you getting at?
Zoe: Well, I don't know, because I haven't seen steffy's baby yet, so I don't know what she looks like --
Flo: No, no. Zoe --
[ Sighs ] Your dad is -- is not the father of the baby, if that's what you're asking.
Zoe: Then why is he involved? What has he done? Now, eyeliner goes nyc-proof.
Wyatt: Yeah. To get your mind off of hope and beth and just all the sadness.
Sally: Okay. Well, what am I sketching?
Wyatt: Athletic wear. Huh? Right? This. You know what I'm saying?
Sally: Ooh, okay. Well, yes. Muscles.
Wyatt: Get some of those in there.
Sally: Oh, yes. Pump it.
Wyatt: I think I pulled something. I'm okay, though. Every great designer needs a muse.
Sally: Well, you definitely are mine.
Sally: Mm-hmm. And thank you. Thank you for saying that.
Sally: That I am a great designer.
Wyatt: Well, you are.
Sally: And thank you for this. For keeping me focused. On my dreams and my passion.
Wyatt: Well, it is kind of selfish in a way. 'Cause when you're focused on your passion, I mean, I typically benefit.
[ Monitor crackles ]
Liam: We, um, started to feel like we were eavesdropping, so...
Hope: Please tell me you turned it off before i started singing.
Liam: [ Laughs ]
Steffy: You have a beautiful voice.
Hope: Well, phoebe didn't seem to mind. It was almost magical, you know? Sitting there, holding her, rocking her to sleep.
Liam: I was, um... I was pretty worried that it would be...too much for you.
Hope: You know, I was, too. I was terrified, actually, that the grief might get in the way, and I might not be able to comfort her, but I was wrong. It was almost instinctual. I knew exactly how to hold her, and -- and how to soothe her. You know, I didn't know if i could connect with a baby, but it feels like that with her. I -- it's something about her, you know? I just -- I want to open up. I want to talk. I --
Liam: We heard you telling her about -- about beth.
Hope: Phoebe's a good listener.
Liam: You're okay, though, right? I mean, you're really okay? You don't have to pretend that that was easy.
Hope: But it was. That's what I'm saying. All that pain that I thought would be there, it wasn'T. It was... I felt happy. So, you know, being able to just pretend for a second, I just -- I needed that. So thank you for allowing me the time to hold her and -- and to, just for a minute, be able to close my eyes and pretend like I was holding beth and rocking her to sleep.
Flo: Reese is a good friend. He was heading back to london. He knew I needed a place to stay, so he offered it.
Zoe: There's more to it. There's got to be.
Flo: He helped me out a little bit.
Zoe: How? Please, flo. I'm concerned. Okay? I don't know what you've dragged my father into, but --
Flo: Just the opposite, actually.
Zoe: Excuse me?
Flo: Don't worry about your dad, okay? It's -- it's all -- it's all done.
Zoe: What's done? The adoption, you mean?
[ Stammers ] What does he have to do with that?
Flo: He arranged it.
Flo: He introduced me to steffy and her mother and arranged it.
Zoe: You're serious.
Flo: Yeah. He's responsible for this? And steffy's able to adopt a baby because of my father?
To most, he's
Wyatt: So... have I been...
[Exhales] Immensely inspiring?
Sally: Yes. Mm-hmm. Yeah. If there actually were an athletic line.
Wyatt: Come on. It'll happen.
Wyatt: You can do anything. I-I'm pretty sure of that.
Sally: You believe in this that much?
Wyatt: I believe in you.
Hope: I-I don't know if you overheard this or not, but I called myself auntie hope, and I remember you saying that when you introduced me, and is that okay?
Steffy: Of course that's okay.
Hope: 'Cause, I mean, that's what I want to be to her, especially now that I lost the chance at being a mother.
Steffy: Hey, we said we'd come together for the sake of our children. That doesn't have to change. I want phoebe to have smart, strong women to look up to, to call family. Auntie hope is definitely one of those women.
Steffy: You say you -- you lost your chance to be a mother, but... hope, that's not true.
Hope: No, I-I -- I couldn't even imagine -- I-I can't go through that again.
Liam: Hey. Well -- listen. Hey. Thankfully, we don't have to decide that any time soon.
Hope: I couldn't put myself in that position, to -- to go through that kind of loss again. I, um... but none of that matters, because we have these girls, and they can fill up our hearts, and that's enough. I mean, they're enough. And they have to be. And... you know, this adoption changes things. You brought this beautiful, amazing girl into our lives, and... yeah, you know, I have some emptiness inside that I'm not sure I will ever... really be able to get over. But there's her. And there's kelly. Getting to watch them grow up, and to help in any way I can, I mean, that -- that brings me so much comfort, knowing that i can be a part of their lives. You know, as a stepmother or auntie hope or whatever they want to call me. You know, I may not have been meant to have children of my own in this life, but I do know that I was meant to have them in my life to nurture and support and care for, and thanks to you, steffy, I can have that.
Zoe: I'm just trying to understand how this is even possible. My dad, arranging an adoption? Because he's a doctor, not a --
Flo: Why does this bother you so much?
Zoe: My dad isn't typically the type to do things out of the goodness of his heart. So what's in it for him?
Zoe: Right. So he just matched a baby to a home out of pure kindness?
Flo: Zoe, I don't know what his motivations were, but I'm glad that he did it. 'Cause that baby has an amazing family now, and she's gonna have a better life than I could have ever have given her.
Zoe: And you guys didn't need an agency to do this?
Flo: No, not with a private adoption.
Zoe: So it's really just that easy to sign over your baby?
Flo: No, of -- of cour-- there was paperwork, of course, and lawyers and everything. Are we done now with all the questions?
Zoe: No. I-I have a lot more. But I'll be taking them directly to steffy. Thank you.
Flo: No, you -- you can'T.
Zoe: Can't what?
Flo: Talk to steffy.
Zoe: And why not?
Flo: Be-because I-I told you everything that you need to know already. Just leave it alone.
Zoe: All that i "need" to know? So there's more? What aren't you telling me?
Zoe: Why can't I go to steffy?
Flo: [ Sighs ] Okay. There is something I didn't tell you.
Flo: The whole thing was done kind of on the down-low.
Zoe: The adoption?
Flo: Well, your -- your dad's involvement in it. We, uh -- we're -- we're keeping it quiet.
Zoe: Who's "we"?
Flo: Your dad, me, and steffy's mom. We're the only ones who know.
Zoe: Steffy doesn't?
Zoe: Why keep that a secret?
Flo: Well, I don't know. Your -- your dad didn't want his name involved in the whole adoption process, and we agreed to keep it a secret. And he said that the main reason was you, actually.
Flo: Yeah. I mean, from what I've heard, steffy forrester is your boss, right?
Flo: I guess he didn't want to put you in an uncomfortable position, and dr. Hayes agreed.
Zoe: So that's why he's been being so secretive lately?
Flo: I guess. Look, zoe, what -- what your dad did, it was -- it was good. I'm -- I'm happy. Steffy's happy. And that little baby will never know the difference.
Zoe: No regrets?
Flo: Everybody benefits. What could I possibly regret?
Liam: Hey, hope. I think it's -- it's a really positive thing that you're able to bond with phoebe like you are. I-I do. Uh... I don't think you should assume that you were never meant to have children of your own. And I-I -- I get what you're doing. You're protecting yourself from more pain. I totally understand that. But... but, hey, you don't know what the future holds.
Hope: Well, I know I won't be missing beth any less. And I know the thought of having a child feels like a betrayal to her memory. But for some reason, when I spend time with phoebe, I don't feel that. And, you know, maybe it's because it isn't mine. You know, I can hold her and comfort her and sing to her and rock her to sleep, and then give her back to you. Knowing that it's your job and your responsibility to look after her life, because I don't want that responsibility ever again. I've already failed twice.
Liam: Failed? You haven't failed anything. You got to stop thinking about it that way.
Hope: I lost two babies. Two children that didn't even take a breath. Yes, liam. I failed. And setting myself up to be put in that position where I have to constantly fear that failure again, I can'T. I can't do it. It would push me over the edge. I mean, there's already this darkness that's all around me all the time -- inside of me, when I close my eyes.
Liam: Whoa, whoa. Hey. Whoa. What? What -- what are you saying right now?
Hope: I get why you'd be worried. But I'm telling you not to be. Because there's something pushing that darkness away, and that's phoebe. You know, getting to spend time with her and hold her, it's almost like I get a glimpse of what life with beth would have been like. And maybe she can help bring me that closure, if -- if that's even possible.
Steffy: Hope, it -- it takes time. It takes lots of time. I wasn't as far along when I lost my first child, so of course I can't know, but... I do know what it's like to lose part of yourself. Phoebe and I, we, uh... we grew at the same time, you know, in the same womb. We lived parallel lives. So I know exactly what you mean when you say closure isn't possible. That darkness... yeah, it -- it doesn't go away. But, uh... time somehow lets you see through it.
Hope: Did you still... feel your sister, even after her death? Because I do. You know, I feel beth. I hear her. And I don't mean like her voice or her crying, I just mean this feeling that keeps pulling at me, this...emptiness, like something's missing or incomplete, and I... I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I don't mean to lay this on either of you. I'm sorry.
Liam: You get to say anything you want to me.
Steffy: To me, too. We're both here for you. I'm just worried that this might not be as helpful as you think. Spending time with phoebe, it might make it harder for you to heal.
Hope: No, no, no, no. 'Cause, see, that's the thing. I wasn't healing. I wasn't healing at all. But then, getting to hold your little daughter, and to look in her eyes and feel her fingers on mine, I -- it makes me feel like -- like I'm gonna be okay. Like things are gonna be okay. And that -- so, you know, I really, um... I really appreciate you allowing me to spend time with her, and to come over here, and... I promise you, loving her won't hold me back. You know, if anything, it just might help me get through this. It might help me get through... the impossible. So, just -- I just want you to know how lucky you are. To have her. That you get to be mother to this -- this amazing little girl.
