Zoe: I can't believe this. You know, I'm trying to wrap my head around it, but...
Reese: It's hard for me to accept what I did, too.
Zoe: And yet you still did it.
Reese: To protect you, zoe.
Zoe: No. I refuse to be your excuse for something so heinous. You convinced hope that her baby had died so you could sell that child to steffy and taylor. Steffy forrester is raising hope's child. Hope deserves to know the truth.
Hope: She is such perfection. Do you know that? Hmm? Bet your mommy tells you that all the time.
[ Chuckles ] Gosh! She's so precious.
Steffy: She's so comfortable in your arms.
Hope: [ Giggles ] She fits. It's just like... well, you know, when they're this tiny, they're easy to hold. Your auntie hope loves you so much. Yeah. [ Chuckles ] I see.
[ Knock on door ]
Bill: Yeah? Ah! That's my boy. Glad you could drop by.
Wyatt: You summoned me.
Bill: Did it come off like that?
Wyatt: "Son, get your butt over here A.S.A.P."
Bill: Well, you know, your dad's a results-oriented guy, and look at the results.
Wyatt: I would have stopped by without prompting.
Bill: Since when?
Wyatt: Since I just saw katie.
Bill: What do you mean? What -- what's going on?
Wyatt: It's about will. Kind of been a major change in his life. Thorne went back to paris. For good. He and katie annulled their marriage.
Brooke: This came out of nowhere.
Katie: Yeah, tell me about it.
Donna: Thorne didn't give you any warning?
Katie: I have gone over every moment in my head for the last few months, and I just -- I-I had no idea that he was thinking of leaving me.
Brooke: I thought you were happy.
Katie: [ Scoffs ] I thought so, too. Clearly thorne wasn't happy.
Brooke: Well, I am shocked.
[ Sighs ]
Donna: And sad.
Katie: Then I guess it's unanimous.
Donna: Oh, honey.
Donna: Oh, baby.
Brooke: Come here.
Wyatt: Katie was totally caught off guard. Now she's in analytical mode, trying to figure out what she missed.
Bill: Well, what, thorne just woke up one morning and said, "I'm out of here"?
Wyatt: I don't -- I don't know. I guess.
Bill: Well, that's not good for my son. I mean, no accounting for taste, but will was attached to that loser.
Wyatt: Well, according to katie, will's okay with it.
Bill: Well, that's good.
Wyatt: Yeah. You know how they say kids are a little more perceptive than we give them credit for? Evidently will could tell that thorne was uncomfortable in the marriage, even though katie didn'T. I mean, it sounds like he's gonna be okay.
Bill: What about katie?
Brooke: How are you doing, really? Are you all right?
Katie: I guess I'm just shocked. But we'll be fine.
Donna: Will knows?
Katie: Thorne and I talked to him together.
Brooke: Will bonded with thorne. How's he taking this?
Katie: I think he was confused at first, and -- and sad, but... it's strange. I almost feel like will understands why thorne is leaving.
Donna: I just -- I don't get this, katie. Why did thorne leave?
Steffy: If it's okay with you, I'm gonna check in on you every once in a while, make sure hanging out with the girls isn't doing more harm than good. I just worry a little.
Hope: I get it. And I appreciate it. But, you know, phoebe just fills this empty space in me. And kelly, too. I mean... heh. Unless it makes you uncomfortable, and then...
Steffy: No, not if you're sure it's helping.
Hope: I can't explain it, but it is. It helps so much.
Zoe: Hope deserves to know that her baby didn't die. That beth is alive and well, under steffy's care. How could you?!
Reese: To save you.
Zoe: From a mess you made!
Reese: You don't think I know how I've screwed up? I've screwed up in so many ways that I can't even count. I can't sleep. I can barely eat. I hate what hope is going through, what I put her through. But I swear, baby, I only did it to save you. I love you more than anything. If you go to hope and tell her what I've done... flo and I are gonna go to jail.
Brooke: I understand why thorne would need to deal with his grief about darla and aly, but I don't understand why he has to go to paris to do that. Why doesn't he find a good therapist here, or a support group, or lean on the people that love him so much and -- and can help him get through this?
Katie: That's not how thorne wants to handle things. Don't think bad of him. He really is just trying to protect will and me from more disruption down the line.
Donna: But still, something just doesn't add up, katie. It's either something that you're not aware of or... something you're not telling us?
Brooke: We're not gonna judge you.
Katie: Well, I haven't done anything to warrant judgment, so...
Brooke: Okay. So where is all that coming from?
Katie: I'm sorry. It's just -- it's -- this is a little hard to absorb. Yes, thorne has some issues regarding darla and aly that he needs to deal with. But... the other reason why he's leaving me is because he thinks I'm still in love with bill.
Bill: So, how's katie doing with the breakup?
Wyatt: Shell-shocked. She didn't even see it coming.
Bill: That really surprises me. I mean, katie's usually so perceptive about... you know, emotional stuff.
Wyatt: I know. I guess, uh, thorne didn't set off any alarms.
Bill: You see, that's what's great about me. You always know where I stand. When you're dealing with a bland personality like thorne, you never know what's going on inside.
Bill: I have to admit, I-I thought he'd be in for the long haul. I mean, at least make it a few years.
Wyatt: I mean, I guess thorne bailed on what he sees as inevitable.
Bill: What does that mean?
Wyatt: I mean, he's leaving katie for a couple of reasons, but one of them is... you.
Steffy: Sorry. When both girls are up, everything takes twice as long.
Hope: No, I completely understand. I'm just...happy to be here. Glad to help out when I can. Not that you need it.
[ Chuckles ] I mean, at this point, you're, like, C.E.O. Supermom, with taylor and amelia as sidekicks.
Steffy: Ah, I get overwhelmed sometimes. Feel like I'm drowning. But, you know, I figure it out because I have to. I'm the parent here.
Hope: Well, thank you for letting me share in all this. Getting to be a part of it. I mean, phoebe, she -- she just brings me so much peace. You're really, really blessed to be her mom.
Reese: If you tell hope the truth about her daughter, flo and I will be arrested. I will lose my medical license. Life as I have known it will cease to exist.
Zoe: What about hope's life? The plans she and liam made for their family?
Reese: I'm sorry. I-I truly, truly am.
Zoe: Just not sorry enough to right the wrong.
Reese: I have to protect you. That is my job.
Zoe: I thought I was out of danger. I mean, wasn't that the whole point?
Reese: If the police get involved, they'll go sniffing around the thugs that I owe money to. And they will not respond positively to the attention, and then we'll just be right back where we started, with them using you as leverage against me.
[ Stammers ] Please. Please, sweetheart, just -- just let it be. Steffy will be a wonderful mother, and hope will still be in the baby's life.
Zoe: Wow. You've somehow managed to justify this horrible thing you've done.
Reese: I hate this as much as you do. I am so ashamed that I've just brought this down on everybody. But as guilty as I am, and as selfish as this is going to sound... I do not want to go to prison.
Zoe: I don't know if I can stay quiet about this.
Reese: Zoe. Zoe, wait!
Xander: This actually loo-- why are you so upset? Huh? Hey. Hey, what's wrong?
Zoe: I got into a fight with my dad.
Xander: About what?
Zoe: Him. You know, how stupid and reckless he can be. How sick to death I am of it. Why can't he just do the right thing?
Xander: Okay. Okay. Is this about steffy's mom?
Zoe: Her, too. Look, are you -- are you doing something?
Xander: No. No, I'm -- I'm not busy if you -- if you need me.
Zoe: I need you to come with me.
Xander: Okay. Where are we going?
Zoe: I need to see steffy.
Bill: What the hell could i possibly have to do with thorne's decision to leave katie? I haven't messed with them at all.
Wyatt: No, not deliberately. Or consciously. You -- you've been good lately. Steady. You know, the kind of father that will can actually look up to.
Bill: I always have been.
Bill: [ Stammers ] Fine. Except for a few distracted moments.
Wyatt: Well, a lot of damage happened in those "few distracted moments," dad. Enough to have a custody battle. And that was when thorne and katie got married.
Bill: Ah! You see? That's why I said they got married.
Wyatt: No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm not saying --
Bill: That's exactly what you're saying.
Wyatt: The marriage, the love, was real. Okay? But presenting a stable family for will was important at the time. It was to contrast your -- your benign neglect. And, yes, you've done a whole lot better lately. Like, you're the kind of parent that will needs and deserves. But that doesn't go unnoticed by thorne.
Bill: I don't give a damn what thorne notices or doesn't notice. I don't need his approval.
Wyatt: You're missing my point here. If will can forgive you, katie can, too. She's accepting of your presence. You guys are co-parenting again, and that's great. And thorne sees you two and how great you are together, and then suddenly he's convinced that she's still in love with you.
Brooke: Thorne actually said that? He think you're in love with bill?
Donna: Have you given him reason?
Katie: No! Of course not.
Donna: You were married to bill. You share a child.
Katie: Yes, and because of that, I will always love him. But not in the way that you think. Not in the way that thorne thinks. Why are you looking at me like that? You think I'm still in love with bill, too?
Flo: So, how'd it go with zoe? Were you able to calm her down?
Reese: [ Chuckles ] That's not happening.
Flo: You have to! She knows too much!
Reese: And whose fault is that?
Flo: Oh. [ Scoffs ] Seriously? You're -- you're gonna blame me?
Reese: I'm sorry. I didn't mean that.
Flo: So what's she gonna do, reese?
Reese: [ Sighs ]
Flo: This is my life, too. I risked everything to help you out of a jam. So if I'm about to be named accomplice in a kidnapping, you need to tell me so I can get the hell out of here.
Reese: The truth is, I don't know what zoe's gonna do.
Zoe: Thanks for letting us come by on such short notice.
Xander: Uh, no notice, really.
Steffy: Well, I'm happy for the company, but something tells me you're here for a reason.
Zoe: Yeah. Um... I just wanted to talk to you about hope's baby.
Steffy: Beth? What about her? - [Narrator] This is the moisturizer
Bill: If thorne actually said that katie's in love with me, then he is scraping the bottom of the barrel for excuses to leave her. I mean, that's absurd.
Wyatt: I don't know. Maybe.
Bill: Look, katie and I will always care about each other. As will's parents. Because that's what our son needs. I've always preached the importance of family, wyatt. And, yes, I -- I lost my way as leader in that regard, briefly.
Bill: But I am determined to get our family back on track. And that's why I asked you here today. I need your help.
Flo: Zoe loves you, right? I mean, y-you're -- you're her father. I mean, she's -- she's upset with you right now, but she's not gonna, like, turn you in. Right?
Reese: I don't think zoe would go to the police. But... she may go to phoebe's mother.
Brooke: Honey! You're here.
Hope: Yeah. [ Sighs ] Seemed like a good idea.
Brooke: Well, only if you're up for it.
Hope: Well, I'm trying to get back in the business of living. So, going through the motions, and faking it till I make it.
Brooke: Just don't overdo it.
Hope: I actually feel pretty good today.
Brooke: Oh! That's good to hear.
Hope: Yeah. Heh. Phoebe has that effect on me.
Hope: Yeah. I was, um -- I was just at steffy'S. She's been really great about letting me spend time with her girls.
Brooke: Do you think that's a good idea?
Hope: That's the only thing that makes me feel hopeful. You know, that, like, I actually might get on the other side of this with some of my sanity still in tact. Holding phoebe, it just... makes all the pain go away.
Steffy: I don't understand. You wanted to see me about hope's baby?
Zoe: Um... losing beth has been so hard for hope.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, and for liam. My heart breaks for both of them. Especially for hope. I lost a child once. It was devastating. And I didn't -- I didn't carry to term.
Xander: I'm so sorry you had to go through that.
Steffy: I didn't know if I'd be able to recover. So I can only imagine what hope's going through.
Zoe: It shouldn't have happened. There was no reason for hope to lose her baby.
Steffy: It's hard to understand why these things happen.
[ Sighs ] You just missed her, by the way.
Zoe: Hope was here?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, she comes over to hang out with the girls.
Xander: I'd just imagine that would be a painful reminder, being with them.
Steffy: Yeah. No, I-I get it. I was concerned about that, too. But... hope seems to find comfort and peace here. Especially with phoebe. Maybe it's because phoebe is about the same age as -- as beth.
[ Sighs ] There's just been so much sadness in hope since beth died. And when she holds phoebe, it just -- it all seems to slip away. No matter how fussy phoebe is, she makes hope come alive. I don't know. On one level, it's -- it's heartbreaking, yeah, but it's also really beautiful seeing their connection.
Zoe: You feel they have a connection between them?
Steffy: Oh, yeah. I -- I thought that from the moment they met. It's like I have to remind myself that hope is holding phoebe, not beth.
Zoe: Because hope's instincts for that child are so intense?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I guess that's it.
Zoe: Well, uh... maybe there's a reason for that. Why hope finds so much peace when she hold phoebe. As if she was... her own daughter. Come here, babe. . . . Child. This is not my first rodeo, guys. So don't try to throw one by me. You can'T.
