Steffy: Zoe, what are you trying to say?
Zoe: Just that it's understandable, you know, hope's connection to phoebe.
Xander: Because of when she was born, so close to her own daughter. Right?
Zoe: Can't get much closer. You know, when, um, she looks at phoebe, how can she not see beth?
Brooke: Seems like being around phoebe would be a constant reminder.
Hope: Of my own daughter? Yeah, exactly. That's why it's helping. I only got to hold my own baby once. Just once. But phoebe is here now, this beautiful girl that steffy has brought into our lives, and i can hold her. I can sing to her, I -- and for brief moments at at time, I can feel what it would have been like for me... with beth.
Would zoe do it? Would she tell?
Reese: I don't know! I would just hope that she would take time to think it over.
Call her, then.
Reese: I did. I tried. I texted her.
Try again! She can't tell anyone what we did, reese.
Wyatt: You need my help.
Bill: It's been a long time since we've felt like a family.
Wyatt: Yeah, for several reasons.
Bill: Legitimate ones. I'm the first to admit that.
Wyatt: Okay. What -- what do you want from me? Why am I here?
Bill: You're here because I'm gonna prove my loyalty to you.
Reese: Straight to voicemail.
Well, what are we supposed to do, then? Are we supposed to just wait here for the cops to show up? God, that's probably what we deserve, isn't it?
Reese: Hey, don't say that.
[ Sighs ] That poor woman, the actual mother. I -- I can't even imagine what she's going through.
Reese: Hope will get better, and my daughter is safe because I was able to arrange this.
You're the one who put her in the situation to begin with.
Reese: It does no one any good for the truth to come out now. I pray that zoe realizes that. I pray that she doesn't tell anyone what I did to hope.
Steffy: I think part of hope does see her own daughter when she looks at phoebe.
Zoe: More than you realize.
Steffy: What do you mean? Did hope say something to you?
Zoe: No. Not hope. But there is something you should know.
[ Phoebe crying ]
Steffy: Oh, that's phoebe. Hold that thought, I'll be right back.
[ Door opens ]
Xander: Okay, what is going on? What were you about to tell steffy?
Zoe: That's just it. I don't know if I should.
Xander: But that's why we're here, right? There's something you wanted to know.
Steffy: Look how popular you are! You have so many visitors! This is xander and zoe. This is mommy's little girl. This is my beautiful daughter.
[ Gasps ]
[ Giggles ]
Zoe: She's beautiful. The noble tortilla was created
Bill: You liked working here.
Wyatt: I did, yeah. But, I mean, I'm just -- I'm doing really well over at forrester right now.
Bill: Oh, come on, wyatt. Really? What, posting things on social media all day? Like, you know, tap tap.
Wyatt: I do a lot more than that, thank you very much.
Bill: At that dress farm, you're just wasting your talent. Come home, wyatt. This is where you belong.
Wyatt: Do I?
Bill: Of course you do. You're my son.
Wyatt: Because I remember a whole other conversation we had that would speak otherwise.
Bill: You know me, all right? I lose my temper, I say things i don't mean, and I'm not proud of it. I'm working on it.
Wyatt: You said I had no guts. You sure you want somebody working here like that?
Bill: Yes! I mean, no! I mean, you have guts, wyatt. You had enough guts to stand up to me, to do what was right when I wouldn'T. You're damn right I want you working here.
Wyatt: You kicked me out.
Bill: Look, I don't know what was happening to me back then. I thought I didn't need you. I was wrong, and I'll do whatever I can to fix it. What do you want me to say? I mean, I'd fall on my sword if I was still wearing it.
Wyatt: You said you didn't realize what was happening at the time. Should I refresh your memory? The way you pursued steffy, the way you bribed me into getting liam to believe that you two were still together, is that it?
Bill: I don't want to think about any of that, wyatt.
Wyatt: It was your son's own pregnant wife, dad! Who -- who does that?
Bill: I do. I did. I screwed up, big-time, and i will do whatever I have to to repair it, to make this family right. I used to preach "family first." I lived that, until I turned my back on everyone. But we can get it back, wyatt. We can have this family again. I mean, look at my relationship with will, all right? I've already proved it. I've stepped up for him. I'm gonna step up for you. That's what I want. I want to be the kind of man that you need me to be, the kind of father that you need me to be. Come back to spencer. This is where you belong.
Reese: Okay, okay. I brought you into this. I will testify to that if the time comes, all right? You were -- you were driving into los angeles to help a friend. You didn't know what you were being dragged into. You don't know the birth mother.
Hope. You said her name was hope. I know I don't know her, but I feel like I do I can picture her -- her guilt, her confusion about all of this, and we did that. We caused her that pain. She's a total stranger. I don't know anything about her. I should just be able to forget her, but I can'T. I feel this -- this guilt, this tremendous guilt. About what we did to her.
Brooke: I think I understand. I'm trying to, at least.
Hope: It's okay if you don'T. I mean, honestly, I can't fully comprehend it, either. All I know is that when I hold phoebe, something inside of me, it just... feels right, you know? I feel complete.
Brooke: She really does bring you peace, doesn't she?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah, and I know it might sound a bit... but I really believe that phoebe was here for a reason. And not just for steffy. And I know she is steffy's daughter and I respect that, but when I hold her and I look down at her... every part of me feels it, that phoebe is here for me, too.
Steffy: I know, I know. You're hungry, sweet pea. There you go. Let's fill you up before kelly wakes up, okay?
Xander: Is it difficult juggling?
Steffy: Yeah, yeah, it can be, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Zoe: So phoebe fits right in as if she was always yours.
Steffy: Yeah, always. It's like I have to remind myself I didn't carry phoebe. I know it sounds ridiculous, but... that's how quickly we connected. Huh? I don't care if I didn't physically give birth to her, and phoebe doesn't care. She's my daughter. Just as much as kelly. Right? Oh, I'm sorry, there was something you had to tell me, right?
Steffy: It was important?
Zoe: Yeah, um...
Steffy: Something you said i needed to know?
Zoe: I -- I just wanted to say how happy I am for you.
Steffy: Thank you, that's very kind. But what does this have to do with hope?
Zoe: Well, um, you know, we've been talking about it at work...
Zoe: And we just want to be here for the both of you. You know, hope for her loss, and you for this exciting new chapter. Happy birthday!
Brooke: Sugar? Hope?
Brooke: [ Sighs ] Lost in thought?
Hope: [ Sighs ] I suppose.
Hope: I need to tell you something, and I -- I don't know how.
Brooke: I'm your mother. You can tell me anything.
Hope: Um... I don't -- I haven't even admitted it to myself.
Brooke: Something about phoebe?
Hope: I know I was telling you how comforting it is being around her.
Hope: But there's another layer.
Hope: I'm trying to figure out what it is. It's this feeling and... I guess it's almost like guilt because I hold phoebe and I look at her, and I think about the home that she and kelly could have if liam and steffy were together. You know, she has two children in her house. These two beautiful girls would benefit from liam living with them.
Reese: I would have never planned this. I would have never taken someone's child, but my child was in danger. I saw an opportunity. And I know this doesn't make it any better, but the baby has a good home.
You're right, it doesn't make it any better, not even a little bit.
[ Door opens ]
Oh, my god. Did you do it? Did you tell?
Zoe: Yeah, I should have, but I couldn'T.
Reese: [ Sighs ] Thank you.
Zoe: Can I talk to my father, please? Alone.
Zoe: Have I just made a horrible mistake?
Bill: This company is your legacy, wyatt. Come on, what's holding you back?
Wyatt: Okay, the thing is, I'm working for some really good people over at forrester right now.
Bill: Unlike me.
Wyatt: One good person in particular. The woman I am living with, the woman who you were extremely cruel to. Do you remember that? Now, what's it say to sally if i come back here working for you, the man who literally just destroyed --
Bill: Bring her!
Bill: You heard me.
Wyatt: [ Scoffs ] Sally spectra, here at spencer.
Bill: Sure, why not?
Wyatt: Because she likes fashion. That's what her life is all about, not -- I mean...
Bill: Wyatt, we publish fashion magazines! Hello?
Eye on fashion. We'll find a place for her. I mean, if that's what it takes to get you back here, that's what we're gonna do. I'll do anything, wyatt. I will do anything to get our family back on track.
Wyatt: You've given me a lot to think about, that's for sure.
Bill: [ Chuckles ] Well, you know, that's all I've been doing the last few months -- thinking. Thinking about what I've done, what I've lost, what I don't want to be -- alone. I want to be the kind of father I didn't have, a father that my boys can actually stand to be around. Help me, wyatt. Help me get there. Help me be the kind of father I know I can be.
Brooke: Hope, what are you saying? There is nothing to feel guilty about, nothing at all.
Hope: The family I was dreaming of, raising my daughter with liam... it isn't happening. But liam still has a family with steffy -- his daughter, and now this new little girl. Beth is gone, and, you know, maybe liam needs to -- those girls deserve to have --
Brooke: Look, you always think about other people first, and this is a good example of how you do that. But you have to focus on yourself. Your relationship with liam takes nothing away from those girls.
Hope: They could have a full-time father. It would be different if we still had our own child to raise, but...
Brooke: Your marriage wasn't based on beth. You and liam, you fell in love, you got married, and, yes, maybe beth would have come along, but the core of the family, hope, is you and liam. And you need to focus on that. You need to be there for each other. And stop pushing him away.
Hope: I understand, but...
Brooke: No. No "buts."
Brooke: Because he's your husband, and you need to make this relationship work. You have to be there for him.
Hope: Why is beth gone? Why did I have to lose my child? It changed everything.
Brooke: Oh, honey...
Reese: I -- I thought you were headed straight to hope.
Zoe: Yeah, I almost did. But I -- I decided to go to steffy instead.
Zoe: I didn't know what I'd even say to her, how the words would come out, if they even should. But I just had this feeling to go see her, that baby. Hope's baby. I still can't even believe that you would do something so horrible, telling hope that her child had died.
Reese: I would do anything to keep you safe.
Zoe: Except for stop gambling.
Reese: I know you probably can't forgive what I've done. It was awful.
Zoe: Most criminal acts are.
Reese: I know you don't believe it, but it's true. How much I love you. What I would do to protect you.
Zoe: I believe that, which makes it so hard for me because the right thing is so obvious. The right thing for me to do is to go running to steffy, to hope, to liam, to the police, just shouting and screaming to all what you did! That's the right thing. But you're my father, and that baby is in good hands. I mean, steffy just -- she adores her. She is phoebe's mother in every sense of the word. It just -- to take her away now, it seems cruel.
Reese: So what are you saying?
Zoe: I'm saying I hate what you did. Every bit of it. You put me in a terrible position. And, you know, you said you don't expect me to forgive you. Yeah, I don't know yet if i will. I guess time will tell. But, uh, I do know that I love you. That will never change. And I don't want you to go to prison. So... I won't say anything. And I can just keep your... ugly secret.
Reese: Thank you, baby. Thank you. Thanks to you, steffy will keep her daughter. And hope will never know that that baby's actually hers.
