Liam: Hope, you -- [ Sighs ] You got to listen to me.
Hope: No, you have to do what's right.
Liam: What's right is us! We're married. We have a life together.
Hope: Not anymore. Not when steffy and those babies need you. They're your family, liam. Be present in their lives! It's the right thing to do.
[ Computer chiming ]
[ Sighs ] Okay. A few more minutes, and I'll have an actual task completed. Just stay qui--
[ Phoebe crying ]
[ Sighs ] It's okay, phoebe! Mommy will be right there.
Sally: Do you hear from thomas and caroline?
Eric: I do. They're good. They're, uh -- they're very happy.
Sally: I'm glad.
Eric: What about them? You have any residual regrets?
Sally: Not one. No, it -- it really wasn't fun getting dumped by thomas twice. And I'm okay with, you know, all the things that led me here. Even the rough stuff.
Eric: Wyatt must really enjoy you.
Sally: Well, the feeling's mutual.
Eric: I'm glad for you both, that you found each other.
Sally: I wouldn't be this version of me if I hadn't met him. No one knows how much he's really done for me.
Bill: Thank you, wyatt. Thank you for giving yet another chance. I'm not gonna let you down. This estrangement has taught me that I am nothing without my sons. So I am honored to have you back by my side again. And if sally's part of the deal, I'm happy to have her, too.
Wyatt: That means a lot to me, dad.
Bill: Welcome home, son.
Wyatt: It's good to be back.
Bill: It's great having you around again, wyatt. I miss the energy that you boys bring to the room.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, I mean, i might be an easier sell than my brother.
Bill: I suspect that's true, but, uh, you know what, all things in time. Right now, I'm just glad to have this first hurdle out of the way.
Wyatt: Well, I'm looking forward to being back, dad.
Bill: Especially because sally's gonna be around.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I mean, she's -- she's important to me.
Bill: I got that impression. You really have fallen for her, haven't you?
Eric: You're terrific, sally, and you're so talented, too. You're absolutely right to go for the chance to be head designer, to replace thorne at hope for the future. It'd be a very good thing for the line, and for you.
Sally: Well, that means a lot to me.
Eric: I can't guarantee anything, though, of course. Final word is up to hope, but I'll, uh -- I'll put in a good word for you.
Sally: Well, that is incredibly generous. Thank you.
Eric: You deserve the shot.
Sally: I appreciate you and this incredible opportunity here at forrester. I am a better designer now that I was when I walked through that door. And I -- I really truly feel like it's time for me to take my career and my skills to the next level. It would be really nice to be able to do that here.
Liam: Hope, hey, listen to me, listen to me. You're a good person. You're kind and generous and loving, and I know that your heart is in the right place. You're thinking of everybody but yourself. You're totally focused on those kids because your maternal instincts for beth have kicked in, and they've got no place to go. But the kids are fine. They're fine. Nothing -- nothing about this situation has to change. I don't need to be steffy. Nobody here wants that. I'm with you. You're my wife. I'm married to you, I'm committed to you. And I am not gonna let you push me away.
Bill: I hope I haven't been a point of contention between you and sally. She can't be too fond of me after the way I treated her.
Wyatt: Look, she's not your biggest fan, but giving her a spencer-affiliated design house will be great for you guys to, uh, work toward a friendship together, and I'd like that. Because she's not going anywhere, and neither are you, so I think it'd be nice for you guys to get along.
Bill: I promise to be on my best behavior whenever sally's around.
Wyatt: Yeah, we'll see how long that lasts.
Bill: [ Chuckles ] Oh, that's very funny, smart-ass. But we actually have some serious business to talk about if we're gonna make this move, right?
Wyatt: Yeah. Right.
Bill: We have to sit down -- you, me, sally, justin, her attorney -- hammer some things out. What are we gonna call this thing? Spectra fashions 2.0?
Bill: Or is sally going to head up a new division? Spencer fashions.
Wyatt: Mm, yeah.
Bill: And, you know what, she might not be interested in any of it. Sally is stubborn, proud. She might just tell me to go pound sand.
Wyatt: I doubt that, dad. She's gonna be very appreciative and excited about this whole thing.
Bill: Well, I guess, uh, time will tell. And if sally needs time, no problem. If she wants to gauge my sincerity, I totally respect that.
Wyatt: You're really making an effort here.
Bill: You know what, wyatt, I want you to have everything you need to live your best life. So if having sally here helps us achieve that goal...
Bill: ...And we make a little money in the process...
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Bill: ...I'm all for it.
Wyatt: See, that's the dad i know and missed. The bill spencer who puts family first. And I want that, too. Spencers reunited, together. And I think we just might pull it off.
Bill: [ Chuckles ]
Steffy: I'm really glad you stopped by, and not just because you're a miracle worker with the girls.
Eric: Lullabies always work.
Steffy: Yeah, it's easy for you to say with a voice like yours. Yeah, mine? Not so much.
[ Both laugh ] How you doing?
Eric: I'm fine. Still adjusting to thorne's abrupt departure, but, uh... adjusting.
Steffy: Yeah, seriously. How's katie?
Eric: Katie's fine. She's resilient, as always, focusing on will. Luckily, bill spencer is taking his role as a father more seriously than I think he ever has before, kind of making thorne's departure not such a bad thing. How are you? How is it with these two girls?
Steffy: You know, it's, uh -- it's just... heavenly. Yeah. What is this? [ Sighs ] It's tough! It's -- it's tough, granddad. It really is. Even though I have mom and amelia, it gets overwhelming, but I would trade it for the world. They just bring me so much joy.
Eric: I'm proud of you. You're gonna be this great role model for these two beautiful girls. They're very lucky.
Steffy: I just wish grandma were alive to see them, that they could grow up knowing her.
Eric: They will, through you. I mean, that's one of the ways that you're most like stephanie, is the look you get in your eyes when you're watching your children. Fierce and protective, a force to be reckoned with. Don't be afraid to ask for help, though. You got a big family willing to help you, and you're doing this great job, but... you're raising kelly and phoebe all by yourself.
Steffy: Yeah, speaking of which... hope thinks I shouldn't be. She thinks liam should be here, raising the girls with me.
Hope: I've been selfish. I've been so wrapped up my own brain, and I can't be like that anymore.
Liam: Hope, you are the most unselfish person I've ever met. Okay, let me -- let me tell you what's happening here. You are profoundly mourning the daughter that we lost, and you're not thinking straight. But that's okay, you don't have to because I will. I will for both of us. Are you hearing me? You are my family. And that is forever. And so, no, I'm sorry, you don't get to just, like, send me away because I'm not going.
Hope: But --
Liam: Let me finish! Let me finish. If steffy and the girls need help, of course I will be there for them. Of course I will. And, guess what, you will, too. You'll be right there by my side. Yes, we're mourning. Yes, it's really, really hard, but we're gonna get through it together, and I am not gonna let you turn away from me. I'm not.
Wyatt: I'm not gonna hide my
feelings for you, and I'm gonna
try my hardest to show you how
I feel about you in every way
that I can.
Sally: Ahh -- oh!
Wyatt: Okay, ready?
Sally: Oh, no.
Wyatt: Did I get you?
I'm not looking.
Hold on, hold on.
Oh! Wyatt, I got it!
Wyatt: Did you get it?
Sally: Wyatt, I'm really not&
the type of girl that needs to
Wyatt: I love you.
Sally: Maybe I am the type of
girl that need to hear...
Wyatt: I hope that smile on your face had something to do with me.
Sally: Well, absolutely
Wyatt: How did I get so lucky? Oh, wait, I remember. I went out and had a drink one fateful night...
Sally: Mm-hmm, the crazy night that changed everything.
Wyatt: Mm. I was just -- I was just talking to dad about that.
Sally: How did that go?
Wyatt: Oh, you know, it was a productive visit.
Wyatt: Oh, he said he wanted to put the family back together and all that, you know.
Wyatt: Oh, I said I'd help him. Yeah, I'd go back to spencer publications under one condition.
Sally: Wyatt! Why are you making me pry this out of you?
Wyatt: Because you're so cute when you're impatient.
Sally: Okay, well, stop!
Wyatt: Okay. Fine. The one condition, as you know, is I'm not going back unless you come with me and you design your own line.
Sally: And bill said...?
Wyatt: Do you have a lawyer?
Sally: Do I need one?
Wyatt: I don't know, I mean, it couldn't hurt because, uh... you're back in business, baby.
Sally: No! Oh, my god! Thank you!
Wyatt: [ Laughs ]
Sally: [ Laughs ]
Eric: Hope is encouraging liam to be with you?
Steffy: That's what liam said.
Eric: Why? Why would she do that?
Steffy: I don't know, maybe it's her maternal instincts, they've gone awry. Hope can't look out for her baby, so she's looking out for my kids.
Eric: I suppose maybe that's it.
Steffy: And she seems to find some happiness here with the girls, especially with phoebe.
Eric: Why especially phoebe?
Steffy: I don't know. It's like... it's like they had this instant connection. Hope wants phoebe to have every advantage.
Eric: Including liam for a father.
Bill: Liam. Wow, uh, this is a surprise. And that's not a complaint, by the way.
Liam: Uh, yeah, actually, I was looking for wyatt. Sally said he dropped by, and I texted him.
Bill: Uh, yeah, he was here. He just -- he left a few minutes ago, and, in fact, I think he's on his way to see sally. Uh, liam. Since you're here, uh... what do you think about that?
Liam: Sally and -- I think they're great. I think sally makes wyatt really happy. Wait a second, you're not planning on doing something, are you?
Bill: No, no, no, no. No. No, those -- those days are long behind me, um, which I want to talk to you about, but... can I help you? You seem like you have something on your mind.
Liam: Um... yeah, unfortunately, it's not that simple. In fact, I should -- I should go.
Bill: No, no. Liam, please -- please don'T. Don't -- don't go.
Liam: [ Sighs ]
Bill: Even with what's happened between us, I -- I'm still your dad. And if I can help you, in any way, I want to do that.
Liam: I -- I can't be talking to you about it.
Bill: "It?" Does "it" mean steffy? If you have questions, liam, I'll tell you anything you want to know.
Liam: No, it's -- no, it's about you and steffy. It's -- it's about me and steffy. And hope.
Hope: Sorry, I should have called.
Steffy: No, it's -- it's okay. Are you all right?
Hope: Um... I need to talk to you. About your family and liam. People everywhere
Sally: Wait, is this real? You're not messing with me?
Wyatt: Would I do that?
Wyatt: Oh, yeah, well, maybe.
Sally: Bill did not laugh you out of his office?
Wyatt: No, I mean, he was surprised, and it took him a little time to process my request, but then I had to remind him how horribly he treated you. How systematically and ruthlessly he destroyed your company for a skyscraper he doesn't even want anymore.
Sally: So basically you coerced him.
Wyatt: Yeah, but in, like, the most loving way possible.
Sally: Great, cool. So he's going into this whole thing being resentful because that will never work.
Wyatt: No. No. He's going into this realizing how much I love you. And how important you are to me.
Wyatt: What? You are. You are. You're the woman I've been -- I've been waiting for.
Sally: I feel the same way about you.
Wyatt: I'm the woman you've been waiting for?
Sally: [ Chuckles ] No.
Wyatt: Oh. Sorry.
Sally: Yes, I can't believe what you've done for me.
Wyatt: Look, I know that I'm not -- I'm not bringing you, like, a firm deal yet, you know, because there's a lot of details we got to work out. I mean, this is the first time spencer is going into, like, a fashion venture, and it's gonna take a little time to work everything out. But... are you in? Like, are you ready to relaunch spectra fashions at my family company? You and me, working side by side together?
Sally: There is nothing that I want more.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Bill: Is there trouble between steffy and hope?
Liam: Uh, no. No, in fact, it's -- it's the opposite. Hope thinks I should be with kelly and phoebe.
Bill: "Be with" -- what does that mean, spend more time?
Liam: A lot more time, um... hope wants me to go back with steffy.
Steffy: Yeah, liam told me the things you've been saying lately.
Hope: Well, we have to do what's best for the children.
Steffy: I agree with him. But I think you're transferring the maternal instincts that would have gone onto beth onto phoebe and kelly, and I know you're looking out for me, but what you're suggesting...
Hope: No, don't you see, steffy? You have kelly. I had beth. And she's gone. But phoebe is here now. That precious little angel --& everything has changed.
Steffy: Okay, your whole world has turned upside-down, but in time, that will --
Hope: No, no, time won't fix this. I'm struggling, steffy, and i will continue to struggle as long as I know that I'm keeping a father from his children. And I respect you so much for choosing to raise these girls on your own, but... you look exhausted. I mean, how could you not be?
Steffy: I'm -- I'm fine, hope. Don't worry about me.
Hope: I can't help it. I do. I worry about you, and I worry about the girls. I mean, phoebe and kelly, that's a lot of work, and liam should be here.
Steffy: Hope, your emotions are out of control. Understandably so. You suffered a terrible loss.
Hope: I'll never get over it. Never.
Steffy: You will.
Hope: Doesn't matter. I don't matter. Our stupid rivalry -- none of it matters, only the children, and we have to put their needs first. And I love liam. Of course I do. I will always, always love him. That will never change, but... I can't hold onto him anymore because then I'd be taking him away from this children, and i couldn't live with myself. I have to let him go so that he can be the loving, devoted father that he was destined to be, and he -- he loves you, steffy. And you still love him, and we both know that. You're his future now, not me. His place is here with you and the girls. . .
