Brooke: What do you think you're doing, taylor?
Taylor: What are you talking about?
Brooke: I saw you! I saw you plant a kiss on ridge!
Taylor: Oh, my gosh. What were you doing, spying on me?
Brooke: This is my home. How dare you come in here and make moves on my husband?
Taylor: Oh, I did no such thing.
Brooke: You did it, and you know it. You're just embarrassed that you got caught. And you should be.
Wyatt: It's crazy that she's just gone.
Liam: Caroline especially. You know, she's -- uh... she was the kind of person you assume is gonna live forever. She was larger-than-life.
Wyatt: Yeah. The fact that it happened so suddenly...
Liam: Apparently that's -- that's how blood clots are.
Liam: It doesn't sound like there was anything anybody could have done about it.
Wyatt: Yeah. And, uh... you know about that more than anyone. Look, I'm sorry if this is bringing up a lot of stuff for you.
Liam: Oh, I'm just worried about thomas and douglas.
Wyatt: Me too. It's another loss in the family. But just... [ Sighs ] As if you and hope haven't gone through enough already.
Liam: We'll be all right. We'll be all right. Hope will... find a way through it.
Thomas: I can see him running around out there. It's good for him to be outside, get some fresh air.
Hope: It's cute that he wants to find you some pinecones.
Thomas: Heh. Yeah. He used to do that with his mom in central park.
Hope: Caroline was such a good mother to him.
Thomas: I don't know what douglas is gonna do without her.
Hope: Well, he's got you, thomas. He's got all of us.
Thomas: Thank you, hope. Thanks for being there for my son.
Wyatt: But, still, man, this -- it's got to be a tough reminder of your own loss.
Liam: Hits a little close to home. Feels like those first days after we lost beth, you know.
Wyatt: Yeah, that was a rough day. I could just see how much pain you were in. If I could have traded places with you, dude, I would have.
Liam: I know you would have. That's the kind of brother you are. A pain the ass.
Wyatt: Well, obviously.
Liam: [ Chuckles ] But you got a good heart, bro.
Wyatt: Man. I mean, going through stuff like this is hard enough, but when it comes one after the other...
Liam: Yeah, it keeps re-opening the wound. It'S... it brings up a lot of emotions. But... what can you do about that?
Thomas: I want to hear how you're doing. I feel terrible about you and liam's loss.
Hope: Thanks. I got your messages, and -- and caroline reached out a few times, too. I just -- I wish I had been better about getting back to her.
Thomas: She understood. We just wanted you to know we were thinking about you.
Hope: Well, liam and i appreciated your support.
Thomas: Yeah, even though I'm dealing with my own stuff, uh... just know that I-I'm here for you and liam.
Hope: [ Sighs ] I mean, it's nice having you back in town, but I just -- I wish it were under better circumstances.
Thomas: Me too. You okay?
Hope: Um... honestly? Not really. It'S... it's been hard.
Thomas: [ Exhales softly ] Hope, I'm sorry.
Hope: Takes time to heal. And, unfortunately, that's something you and douglas are gonna have to go through now, too. I lost my child, and you lost the mother of your child.
Brooke: I really can't believe you, taylor. Disrespecting me and my marriage in my own home!
Taylor: Oh, stop being so dramatic. Ridge and I have children together. We were married.
Brooke: Please don't remind me. And that was a very long time ago.
Taylor: Look, our family just suffered a terrible loss, all right? I was just sharing my sadness with ridge.
Brooke: Really? Is that all it was? Because I remember you saying something like you miss him, and you're still very much in love with him.
Liam: Well, I'm glad you and sally are doing this. I think she deserves a shot at making it as a real designer.
Wyatt: We're happy. I mean, we're hoping to get the ball rolling sooner rather than later, but...
[ Clears throat ] Um, we got a bunch of free weekends coming up if you and hope want to come down to the beach.
Liam: Um... yeah, that -- that sounds really fun. Um...maybe... in, like, a few months, though?
Wyatt: Hope feeling any better?
Liam: I-in some ways, yes. The -- the cloud is lifting a little.
Wyatt: That's good.
Wyatt: I'm sure the road is long.
Liam: Oh, man, you have no idea. And I've been reading about what mothers go through when they -- when they lose a child the way that hope did, and, um... I think that I-it would be incomprehensible for you or me. Uh... a part of hope left with beth that night. And now it's just about adjusting to the new normal.
Wyatt: Liam, listen. This is one of those situations where you just -- you just have to go through it. You know, there is no right or wrong in how to deal with it. Everybody's got a different process.
Liam: Yeah. Well, for hope, that's phoebe. Just, like, spending time with her, holding her. It's -- it's -- it'S... it's comforting.
Wyatt: Yeah. That makes sense.
Liam: See, that's the thing. I mean, hope has such strong maternal instincts, even if she says she's too heartbroken to have another child.
Thomas: Caroline's memorial was kind of a blur to me.
Hope: Well, I mean, you're still in shock. You've only just begun to grieve.
Thomas: It was sweet sally was there. Part of me wants to reach out to her, but I know she's moved on with wyatt. Um, that probably seems like too soon, I'm sure. Um... there's something that not a lot of you living in L.A. Know about our time there. Um... we weren'T...together.
Hope: But I thought that's why you broke it off with sally -- to be with caroline.
Thomas: It was. But it -- it -- it never happened. It was too tough trying to get back what we had. But, heh, it actually worked out really well, 'cause we realized we were amazing co-parents. We just hadn't been romantically involved in a long time.
Hope: Wow. I had -- I had no idea.
Thomas: She was one of my closest friends. She was the mother of my child. We just realized that we were better as friends. And I was so focused on douglas, and so was she. Um... but...now she's gone. Douglas...has no mom, and I'm a single father.
Taylor: Of course I will always love ridge. We were together for years. I'm sorry if that makes you feel threatened.
Brooke: I don't feel threatened. I'm very secure in my marriage.
Taylor: Good grief. This battle was over decades ago. At least be gracious in your victory.
Brooke: Is that what you think this is all along? Just a game?
Taylor: You think that i think this has all been a game? Letting you wreck my life, take my husband from me? No, you -- you are the game player who came traipsing in in your lingerie, seducing my husband at work every day.
Brooke: Oh, my god.
Taylor: I mean, really, who puts a bed in their office?
Brooke: All right. All right! That's it! I want you to leave.
Taylor: Fine! But I will be back. I'm coming back whenever I want, because I'm going to be visiting thomas and my grandson. Ridge invited them to stay here.
Brooke: They are more than welcome to stay, taylor.
Taylor: But I'm not? What is wrong with you? My grandson just lost his mother!
Brooke: And I told you, I'm very sorry about that.
Taylor: Let's just call a truce, all right, and stop all of this. Hope is trying to bring peace. I-I know all about her taking off her wedding band, brooke.
Brooke: Hope was vulnerable. She wasn't thinking clearly.
Taylor: No, that's -- that's where you're wrong. Hope is the only one thinking clearly.
Brooke: Oh, my god. What -- what is this all about? Wait. I know. It goes back to steffy and liam. Our grandparents checked their smartphones
Wyatt: Look, hope needs patience right now. So you got to -- you got to give her some room.
Liam: Yeah, I-I'm trying not to put any pressure on her. You know, to -- to let her guide the process.
Wyatt: That's all you can do.
Liam: I just... wish hope could see the woman that I see. But it's like she's lost confidence in herself -- in her ability to be a mother, in her ability to protect her child.
Wyatt: Right. She's gonna be an awesome mom someday.
Wyatt: And I -- I hope it happens for you. I really do.
Liam: But hope's not ready yet. I mean, she -- she's still afraid she's gonna lose another child.
Wyatt: And that's understandable. Think about how hard it is to, like, have faith in anything when you go through such a deep loss. But hope's a fighter. She'll get stronger. She'll -- she'll get through this. She'll -- she'll believe in herself more. Someday, she'll want to have a family again. She will, liam. Just give it time.
Thomas: I wasn't prepared to lose her. I mean, nothing can prepare you. I can't believe I'm in this position. How could douglas lose his mother at such a young age?
Hope: Well, that has to be the hardest part as a parent. Knowing that your child doesn't have his mom anymore.
Thomas: He loves her. You know, she was his hero. He's gonna miss her so much.
Hope: Yeah, but you'll keep her memory alive. You know, you'll -- you'll talk about her and show him photos and videos.
Thomas: It's not the same.
Hope: I know. I wish I could tell you that it gets easier. But I'm kind of still waiting for that to happen for myself. But, you know, you just -- you have to rely on your family, thomas. You have to rely on people who care about you.
Douglas: Mom! Mommy! I saw mommy!
Brooke: You are obsessed. Steffy and liam have been broken up for a very long time now, and they've moved past this. The only person who hasn't is you.
Taylor: No, no, no, no. No. Steffy and liam would still be married if bill hadn't interfered.
Brooke: Well, then, talk to bill. I had nothing to do with that. But somehow you're always trying to blame me for everything that doesn't go right in your life.
Taylor: No. This isn't about me. It's about my daughter.
Brooke: Oh, taylor, it's --
Taylor: And my granddaughters.
Brooke: ...Always about you! I don't want to have this discussion again.
Taylor: Steffy is practically raising those little girls all by herself.
Brooke: That's great, isn't it? That's just wonderful. I mean, that's a choice that she made. That was her decision. And you know what? She is lucky. She is so lucky to have two healthy, beautiful babies. While my daughter is suffering the loss of her own. She is struggling with liam. They're both grieving for their child. So leave them be, taylor. Let them alone, please.
Taylor: Even hope says that she wants liam to go back to steffy.
Brooke: Hope was in a vulnerable place! She's in a very dark space. And you of all people -- I thought that you would have empathy for her, but you don'T. You're just trying to take away every little bit of happiness that she may have left. Don't you dare do it. If you try to manipulate liam to go back to steffy, it's not gonna happen. Even if hope and liam don't have a child, he is not going to leave her, taylor. So get that through your thick skull! Do you hear me? It is not going to happen. I switched to miralax for my constipation.
Douglas: I saw her.
Thomas: You saw your mom?
Douglas: Yes! Outside by the birdhouse.
Thomas: Okay. I-I wish that she was still here with us --
Douglas: She is! I saw her!
Hope: Um... hey, douglas, you know, when we lose someone who loved us so, so much, we always keep them in our hearts. And sometimes when we miss them and we want to see them again, our memories bring them back to help us see them.
Douglas: So my mommy wasn't really there, then?
Hope: No, sweetie.
Douglas: Where's mommy? Where is she?
Thomas: She -- she's -- she's not here, buddy. She's up in heaven, remember?
Douglas: I can't hug her again?
Hope: I'm afraid not, sweetheart. You know, but you will always feel her love for you. And she will always feel yours.
Douglas: Can you be my mommy?
Brooke: Hope and liam are married. They're building a life together. Now, steffy made some questionable choices, so she is dealing with the consequences.
Taylor: [ Scoffs ] Oh! Spare me the sanctimony.
Brooke: God, you are so transparent, taylor. It's obvious you want liam in that home.
Taylor: Of course I do. He needs more time with his daughters.
Brooke: He has one daughter. He's not phoebe's father.
Taylor: Phoebe needs a father, too. Even hope can see that that is the right decision. She is the only one thinking straight!
Brooke: Oh, my god. So, what do you want her to do? You want her to walk away from her marriage? You want her to just throw away her husband?
Taylor: She can find someone else.
Brooke: God! How dare you?! You are being ridiculous!
Taylor: No. I am trying to stand up for my grandchildren. For once, can't you just respect my family?
Brooke: Respect your family? Yeah, taylor. I can do that. Can you respect my family? Can you respect me? My marriage? The man that you were kissing in my living room? Where's the respect in that? You say you want to have a truce, but how can we do that when you are making out with my husband, and you are trying to break up my daughter's marriage? We are parents. We are mothers. We want what's best for our children. But facts are facts. Steffy and liam aren't together anymore. And that's not hope's fault. That is because of steffy. Because she turned to bill. Her father-in-law. The worst possible betrayal. Sure, you can blame bill all you want. But steffy said that she was a willing participant.
Taylor: [ Scoffs ]
Brooke: And she hurt liam. She destroyed that trust. And what did my daughter do? Did she swoop in? No, she didn'T. She was there to help them, help support that marriage, for months. But it didn't work out. So hope and liam ended up together. And now they -- they are dealing with the loss of their child. Beth. And they need a lot of love and support, taylor. They certainly don't need you insinuating that liam should leave hope and reunite with steffy. Don't you see what you're doing? You are pitting us and our daughters against each other. The blondes versus the brunettes. As if, by virtue of our hair color, we get to stand on moral high ground. This has been going on for years -- for decades. And somewhere along the line, you rewrote the story to where you and your daughter, you -- you guys are the virtuous ones. Well, no more. You can judge me all you want. I am used to your high-and-mighty attitude. But you sure as hell are not gonna do anything to harm my daughter. Hope is so loving, and she is kind, and she is moral. She's everything you wish that you were. And she is suffering, taylor, the biggest grief of her life. And I'm gonna be there to protect her. So if you try to come between hope and liam, I swear to god, you're gonna have to go through me first!
