Sally: How long was I gone?
Wyatt: What, away from all this? I mean, it must have felt like an eternity.
Sally: It did.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] Cappuccino?
Sally: Thank you so much.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Sally: You know what else made it feel like an eternity?
Sally: Everything that happened while I was gone. Gram said that your texts were more interesting than her reality shows.
Wyatt: You have no idea. It was really crazy around here.
Sally: Yeah. Seriously. You helped flo find her dad, who happened to be hope's uncle? I mean, are you kidding me?
Sally: But, then again, I did think back to our dinner party and the way they bonded.
Sally: You said they were both happy when they found out?
Wyatt: Yeah, once they wrapped their heads around it, but...
Sally: Then why the frownie face, handsome?
Wyatt: [ Sighs ]
Sally: What's wrong?
Wyatt: I'm j-- mm. I'm just -- I'm worried about hope and liam. He called and he asked to come over. He wants to talk about something. I'm just -- I don't know. I'm starting to think their marriage is in trouble.
Thomas: [ Sighs ] It's your turn, bud. You don't feel like playing anymore?
Douglas: Not really.
Thomas: Well, what do you want to do? Oh. Maybe I can think of something. Is there somewhere you want to go? Is there someone you want to see?
[ Chuckles ] You miss hope, don't you? Maybe we should go see her.
Thomas: All right. Yeah. I miss hope, too. I think that's a great idea.
Liam: All right. Well, give them both a big hug for me. Oh, I can? Yeah. No, I'd love to. Hey, sweetheart! It's your daddy. I love you so much. You be a good girl for mommy and grandma, okay?
[ Chuckling ] All right. Yeah. No, that was great. Thanks. Okay. Tell them I miss them. Bye.
[ Sighs ] Everyone's great.
Hope: Nobody's getting homesick?
Liam: Well, no. They're fine. They're fine as long as they're with steffy.
Hope: I don't know. You should really be with them, too, liam. I mean, really, you should get on a plane and go see your family.
Liam: Listen, steffy and the girls are not gonna be in europe forever.
Hope: No, but you don't have to wait for them to come back. I see how much you miss them.
Liam: I do. I do miss them.
Hope: Okay. So go be with them.
Liam: That would be great if this were a good time for us to get away.
Hope: [ Chuckles ] As much as I would love to go to europe and I really do miss the girls, they need you.
Liam: Hey, hey. Right now my place is with you. Uh, actually... right now --
[ Chuckles ] Yeah, right now I-I have someplace to be, but, um, I do have a-a little surprise for you when I get back that does not involve jet lag, and I think you're not gonna be disappointed.
Hope: Well, you could never disappoint me.
Liam: You know that goes both ways, right? Like, I'm not just here because I think you need me. I'm here because I belong here. I'm your husband. I love you. I want to be with you. The life I want is the life i have with you.
Sally: [ Sighs ] I mean, everybody knows that hope and liam have been going through a really difficult time.
Wyatt: Well, losing beth was devastating for them.
Sally: Yeah, but, I mean, they're dealing with it.
Wyatt: Yeah, and, of course, they love each other and liam's committed to hope and everything, but...
Sally: Yeah, and hope feels the same way about liam.
Sally: Doesn't she?
Wyatt: Yeah, of course she does. Look, I'm not questioning their commitment. I'm just -- I don't know. I'm worried. You know, I don't mean to be negative about this situation, 'cause that's the last thing they need right now. But it just -- I-it feels like hope is... stuck. And I don't know. I mean, I'm -- I wonder if it's beginning to take a toll on their relationship.
[ Knock on door ]
Hope: It's open! Hi! Oh, my goodness! Is that for me?
[ Gasps ] Oh, my. It is so pretty. Thank you, douglas.
Thomas: I hope that's not one of mommy's favorites.
Hope: Oh, I'm sure she won't mind. My mom knows how much fresh flowers cheer me up.
[ Chuckles ]
Thomas: Well, seeing you cheers us up. Isn't that right, buddy? Everything's better when we're with hope?
Hope: That's so sweet. Come here. Hi.
Brows for days.
Wyatt: What are the odds, huh?
Liam: I know, I know -- that flo's dad is hope's uncle storm. That's insane.
Sally: [ Sighs ] I mean, yeah, but when you think about it, it actually does make sense that they're related -- the way that hope and flo hit it off and, you know, the way hope feels this connection to phoebe.
Wyatt: [ Clears throat ]
Sally: Phoebe's birth mother is hope's cousin.
Wyatt: H-how are you and hope handling all of this?
Liam: Um... same as anything else, I guess.
Sally: You know, if you guys need some time to talk, I can take off for a little bit.
Liam: No. Actually, it would be great if you stayed. I wouldn't mind a woman's perspective on this.
Sally: I mean, yeah, if I can help out at all.
Liam: I don't know what wyatt's told you, but, um... I'm a little worried about hope and our marriage. I mean, she's -- she's going through a lot right now, and I'm totally sympathetic to that. Losing a child -- it's not something you just get over, but... you know, there are supposed to be ways to cope, you know, and to move forward, and I've been trying to help hope with that, and -- and... no matter what I do, it's just not -- it's not getting any better, and, in fact, some days... it, um... kind of feels like it's getting worse.
Liam: Well, you know, I mean, I know hope and I love each other very much, but -- but there's this wall between us, obviously, and -- and it'S... just getting higher and higher.
Sally: So, you're not getting through to her?
Liam: [ Chuckles ] Hope and I are -- are not... really together on any level -- like, emotionally or... physically.
Wyatt: Mm-hmm. So...
Sally: Oh. So, you guys aren'T...
Liam: No. No. Not since beth, no.
Wyatt: But that's like -- grief will do that. Grief -- it's g-- you know...
Liam: Yes, yes, and -- and, you know, I'm -- I'm being understanding and supportive, and I wouldn't push her into anything, but I-I just -- I don't know what to do, and... we've already been through so much, and I just don't want this to be, like, another thing that comes between us, you know?
Thomas: Ahh. Yeah.
Hope: I think this flower belongs in a special place, just like you, douglas, have a very special place in my heart. Hey, and you know what? You bring me the coolest, most wonderful little presents when you come to visit me.
Douglas: Daddy knew you'd like the flower.
Thomas: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. You know what she would also like? One of those cool rocks you found out by the tree.
Hope: [ Gasps ] Ooh, I really like the sparkly ones.
Douglas: Okay. I'll find one.
Hope: [ Chuckles ]
Thomas: Okay, but stay close to the house, where we can see you.
[ Sighs ] The flowers really were his idea.
Hope: No, I know. He told me that his mommy liked to bring gifts when she visited people.
Thomas: Yeah. Sometimes, uh, when he wakes up after he's dreamed about her, he, uh, looks around the room to see if she left him something.
Hope: That's really sweet.
Thomas: Yeah. Those dreams used to upset him, but they don't anymore... thanks to you. You -- you told him about how you -- you dream about beth... and it makes you happy to see her laughing and smiling.
Hope: Well, it's true.
Thomas: [ Chuckles softly ] You're so good with him. I can't thank you enough. I mean, kids are smart. They know when people genuinely care about them, and you do. You're exactly what he needs right now.
Hope: Well, douglas is a very special little boy, and, on some level, he's [Chuckles] Exactly what I need. I'm sorry. I don't -- I don't want to lay all this on you.
Thomas: You can talk to me about anything. You know that.
Hope: I just -- I keep expecting this hole in my heart to get smaller, but it doesn'T. You know, I miss beth so much, and, um... you know, when steffy was here with the girls, it helped a little, especially phoebe. I-I felt peace when I was able to hold her, but I also felt a tremendous amount of guilt.
Hope: For keeping liam away from his daughters, and, yes, i know that phoebe isn't biologically his own, but she's still kelly's little sister, and they both should have a father, and I'm keeping him apart from them, and I just -- I don't know. That's why I told --
Hope: I told liam that he should be with steffy and the girls -- you know, be a family. I even tried to give liam his wedding ring back, but he assured me that his place is here with me. But I still can't help feeling selfish.& I don't know. Is that crazy?
Thomas: No. I think you're right.
Liam: I mean, I don't want hope to feel pressured, but i don't want to, like, pull back too much, either.
Wyatt: Hey, dude, it's okay.
Liam: I can't believe I'm talking to you guys about this.
Sally: Hey, look, you're giving hope the respect and space that she deserves.
Wyatt: Hope probably just needs a little more time.
Liam: Ugh. I'm trying. I'm trying to give her that and I'm trying to be open and honest about my feelings.
Wyatt: You guys are obviously talking about stuff.
Liam: We talk about beth, obviously, and our loss and our grief, but we also talk about phoebe and kelly. We -- we -- we even talk about flo, but at this point, it just feels like we're -- I don't know -- filling in the space between us or something.
Wyatt: Maybe what you need is a break.
Liam: Well, hope needs a break. I mean, that's one of the reasons that steffy took phoebe and kelly away. I mean... hope was kind of getting a little attached, and -- and i think steffy thought that maybe hope would be able to move forward easier if -- if she and the girls were out of the picture.
Sally: Yeah. Look, I mean, that's a really nice thought, doing what's best for hope, but what about you?
Sally: I mean, your daughter is an ocean away. Don't you miss her?
Liam: Yeah, I do.
Sally: Well, have you ever thought about going to see her?
Liam: I need to -- I need to be with hope.
Sally: Hope doesn't want you to go?
Liam: [ Chuckling ] Believe me, hope wants me to go.
Sally: Okay. Then what's stopping you?
Sally: I mean, look, I don't -- I don't mean to be insensitive, but there was a time when... you loved steffy. You know? I mean, you guys had kelly, and then she adopted phoebe. They're your family, too.
Liam: Yeah, they are.
Sally: So maybe hope has a point. Maybe you should go see them.
Thomas: Let me clarify. I-I don't think you're being selfish, but I understand why you feel that way.
Hope: But you agree, though, that liam should be with steffy?
Thomas: I don't want to seem like I'm just defending my sister.
Hope: [ Chuckles ] Well, i wouldn't blame you for it.
Thomas: Look... steffy is a force. If anyone can be a single mom and raise two kids on their own, she can. And she's got amelia and mom to help. But... I remember when she was expecting kelly... and the plans that they made and... how excited they were. I don't know if I should be telling you this.
Hope: No. No. No. I want you to be honest with me.
Thomas: Kelly and phoebe will have a great life with steffy, uh... but growing up without a dad -- it's not the same. I mean, our families were fractured at times. I didn't want that for douglas. That's why I went to new york, to be with caroline, and we weren't a couple. We were a team. And it sounds like that's what you want with kelly and phoebe.
Hope: Yes. Yes, I do. I mean, that is -- that's exactly what I want.
Thomas: Hope, that's not selfish at all. You're -- you're the opposite of that. You're -- you're generous -- with your time and with your heart. I've seen that firsthand... not just how you've been there for douglas but how you've been there for me. Ok everyone!
Liam: I mean, I can't -- I can't just, like, jump on a plane and go. Hope needs me.
Sally: Is that what she said?
Liam: Well, no. She said -- she said I should go, but that's -- that's not what she really needs.
Sally: I feel like hope knows herself pretty well.
Liam: But... I love hope. I'm -- I'm committed to her.
Sally: Yes, but you also have a commitment to steffy. She's the mother of your child.
Liam: And I love her, too, obviously, you know? Like, I always will. But I'm trying to do the right thing here, and -- and, more and more, I don't know what that looks like. I want hope to get better. I also want to see my girls. I know... phoebe is not really my girl, but... you know, I do miss her, and... god, I mean, even when steffy just put her in my arms for the first time, it was like --
[ Imitates explosion ] It was like this instant connection. I mean, I was looking down at her, and I just -- I wanted to say, "hey, you, I love you. You're my daughter." Like, that -- like, that's what I wanted to say. So -- so, yeah, I guess I do kind of feel like I'm father to both kelly and phoebe, and i miss them a lot. But -- but the problem is, no matter what I do, I'm letting someone down, you know? Steffy, hope, kelly, phoebe -- someone.
Wyatt: [ Sighs ] I'm sorry, man. I-I had no idea that you were struggling like this.
Sally: But none of this is a secret to hope, is it? She sees all these feelings churning inside of you, and that's why she told you to go.
Liam: I know... our love is strong... and yet you hear stories about what a tragedy like this can do to a couple. But I'm gonna fight it, and I'm not gonna give up.
Thomas: You've been dealing with so much, hope.
Hope: Please don't tell me that I need to focus on myself more.
[ Chuckles ] No, that's not you. Your focus is always on other people, bringing good to the world, which you've done for me, for douglas, for hope for the future. Actually, I've -- I've been meaning to talk to you about that. Since thorne left, your -- your line hasn't really had a designer. I've been working on some sketches, and I thought maybe --
Hope: I'd love to see them.
Thomas: Well, I know you're just easing back into work.
Hope: Well, it was crazy of me to think that I could just pick right back up where I left off, so...
Thomas: But you're trying, and that's inspiring. Hope, I want to see you happy and fulfilled in your life. I want that for myself. Maybe we can help each other.
Hope: Well, I do have some ideas and things I'd like to do, and I've -- I've been trying to go to the office more, although, obviously, I'm not back full-time yet, but I-I really do appreciate you thinking of me.
Thomas: I'm always thinking of you, hope. After all you've done for douglas [Chuckles] How could i not? Hey, bud. You find something cool out there?
Hope: Did something happen?
Douglas: I remembered, um, that time I-I thought I saw mom.
Hope: Yeah. You were outside playing, and you felt like you saw her?
Thomas: Did remembering it make you sad? I'm sorry, bud.
Douglas: Mommy's in heaven.
Thomas: Yes, she is. And she's looking down and watching over you. Mommy will always love you, okay? And I know it's not the same. I know that you wish that she was here, that -- that she could hold your hand and read you stories, tuck you in at night. Maybe someday there will be another woman in our lives, someone who can look after you like you remember.
Douglas: Like hope?
Thomas: Uh, yeah. Like hope.
