Thomas: Thank you.
Hope: I think he'll be okay now.
Thomas: Yeah. He's out.
Hope: I didn't know he was still having nightmares.
Thomas: No, he hasn't had one in a while. But you calmed him down, just like his mother. I'm glad you were here.
Hope: It's like caroline wrote in the letter -- a mother in need for douglas. I have to admit, being here with him, it makes me think about what it might have been like with beth.
Flo: [ Sighs ] I don't know, mom. I am just having a really hard time with all of this. I-I can't stop thinking about hope and everything that I was involved in.
Shauna: Honey, hope is so happy that you're part of the family. And she gave you an incredible opportunity at forrester. Plus, we're living in this incredible mansion. You're allowed to enjoy all of this.
Flo: How can I, mom? How?
Shauna: How can you not? Baby, you have so much to be excited about. You heard quinn. She really thinks that there's a real chance for you and wyatt.
Wyatt: Working kind of late, aren't you?
Wyatt: [ Clears throat ] The place is pretty much a ghost town at this hour.
Sally: Yeah, well, I'm just trying to distract myself. I have no one to run home to, so... sorry. I -- I didn't mean to make you feel bad when I'm the one that screwed up.
Wyatt: I didn't ask you to move out, sally.
Sally: Yeah, but it just felt like space wouldn't have been a bad idea when...
[ Sighs ] You know, since I let you down. Look, I should have -- I should have been honest with you about thomas and how he felt about hope. I know how much honesty and transparency mean to you. I really blew it, didn't I?
Flo: I am deceiving everyone I care about. I mean, you say I have a chance with wyatt, and I -- and I want that so bad. But if he ever found out our -- our secret, then --
Shauna: Keep your voice down. Honey, this is our first night in this gorgeous home. I don't want to argue with you. We've worked so hard, and we deserve this.
Flo: And what about hope and liam? What do they deserve? They deserve to know that their child is alive.
Liam: Hey. I, um... texted you when I got home.
Hope: Oh, sorry. I-I left it down here. I was up at the main house.
Liam: Was, uh, thomas there?
Hope: He was.
Liam: Do you think it's a-a good idea to be in his orbit when he's walking around telling everyone how in love with you he is, and that he wants you to be his kid's new mom?
Hope: I understand why you don't trust him, liam, but more and more, I'm beginning to believe that there are greater forces at work here.
Liam: Greater forces? What do-- what does that mean?
Hope: That thomas is right. That douglas does need me.
Liam: What are you saying?
Wyatt: Look, from day one, we promised that we were gonna be open and truthful with each other. You remember? No secrets.
Sally: No second-guessing. No trying to read between the lines. I could always just relax and be...completely myself.
Sally: [ Sighs ] Look, I never wanted to hide anything from you, wyatt. But I made a mistake. And now I'm wondering, how bad did I blow it? I see flo in the office.
Wyatt: Yeah? Um... I mean, that's one of the reasons why I'm here. Look, I-I'm not -- I'm not gonna hide anything from you, sally. But flo and I have agreed to see each other.
Liam: Um, did... something happen at the house? Did thomas say something?
Hope: No, it wasn't thomas. It was me. I'm the one. Douglas needs me. And I know that.
Liam: Okay. Okay. But douglas is just a little kid, and he doesn't understand how complicated this whole thing --
Hope: And douglas had a nightmare tonight, and he was crying out, calling for his mommy, and even thomas couldn't comfort him. And I didn't think I could, either, but I did. I made him feel better. And then he asked me to stay with him until he fell asleep. And I'm not gonna lie, liam -- it felt really good to soothe him, and to rub his back and let him know that he was gonna be okay, because I know I would have done that with beth. Nothing is ever gonna replace her in my heart. But douglas is a child in need.
Liam: Okay. Um... listen, I think -- all right. Hope, I think it's great that you're helping douglas. I feel so bad for him. Trust me, I know what it's like to lose a mother. Doesn't matter how old you are, it sucks. And, yeah, thomas is obviously struggling, too, and could probably use our help. But that doesn't mean you have to let him convince you --
Hope: This isn't about thomas! Liam, you're the only man I have ever wanted. I love you more than anything. But this is bigger than us now. I mean, who are we if we're putting our needs be-before those of the children?
Liam: The girls are fine, hope! Douglas is gonna be fine. Just because the situation isn't ideal doesn't make it wrong.
Hope: But don't the children deserve the absolute best lives that we can give them?
Liam: This is -- all right. All right. This is not an either/or situation. It's not our marriage or the kids' happiness. I -- I'm your husband. We made vows. A-and when we said, "I do," it wasn't, "I do until somebody needs us more." I-I promised the rest of my life to you, and I'm not comfortable walking away from that, and I -- I really don't want to believe that you are, either. Whether you're this kind of active or this kind of active,
Wyatt: Look, I-I'm n-- I'm not saying this to be cruel or anything.
Sally: Yeah, I know. You wouldn't do that. You're just...trying to be open and transparent.
Wyatt: Sally, I don't want you to think that I have forgotten what we have between each other, okay? I-I still care about you a lot.
Sally: [ Inhales sharply ] I still care about you, too, wyatt. As much as ever. But you want to see if there's anything going on between you and flo. You guys were in love once. And your mom thinks that flo is the only woman that was ever right for you. And maybe that's true. But there's only one way to find out.
Wyatt: I'm -- I'm not jumping into anything here, all right? One date and -- and --
Sally: Look, I really don't want to know the details. I understand.
Flo: My bad judgment could ruin hope's entire life.
Shauna: You're not responsible for her marriage. Couples have problems.
Flo: Yeah, and they were trying to work through them until thomas started moving in on hope.
Flo: Thomas. He's steffy's brother.
[ Sighs ] The mother his child passed away, so he moved back here with his son, douglas, and hope has been trying to help them out a little bit, and had been spending a lot of time with them while liam was in paris.
Shauna: Did something happen between them? Because it sounds like it's hope's bad judgment, not yours.
Flo: No. [ Stammers ] Hope loves liam, but she's just vulnerable right now. Don't you see? If -- if they break up now, they'll never have another child. They'll never fully heal. And then thomas has this whole other agenda. He -- he wants liam to go back with steffy so that phoebe and kelly will have a mother and a father, and he wants hope to be with him. He wants hope to be the mother of his son, douglas.
Thomas: "No mother ever wants to think they might not be around for their child. But if something happens to me and I can't be there for douglas..."
Hope: This woman that she talks about, this woman out there that needs a child... I feel like caroline means me. I think I could be that woman.
Liam: This is thomas. It's -- it's thomas. He's p-- he's putting this stuff in your head and --
Liam: I know you want to do right by the kids. I know that. But you don't have to throw away our marriage to do it, hope.
Hope: I tried, liam. I really did. And you've been so understanding.
Liam: Because I love you.
Hope: And I love you, too. But it's time. We have to put the children first. And I know that a part of you loves steffy. And you could be happy with her, like that photo hanging in her living room. And you don't have to worry about me. I'll be okay. Because I know what I have to do, and I-I see that so clearly now, and... I do believe that we were put here to take care of each other. But sometimes that involves looking at the bigger picture and making a sacrifice. And I have known what I have needed to do, but it was --
[ Crying ] It was -- it was your love that stopped me. But I have to. I have to give the children the future that they deserve, and I -- I need to end our marriage, and I have to let you go.
Sally: Actions have consequences. And I made decisions that hurt you.
Wyatt: Sally, this is not payback by any means. I want you to know that.
Sally: I know. I'm the one that gave us space. But I want you to know, my feelings haven't changed for you at all, wyatt.
[ Tearfully ] Not one bit.
[ Sighs ]
Flo: This secret could cost hope everything.
Shauna: So now you're responsible for every unlucky thing that happens to hope for the rest of her life?
Flo: Mom, it's -- it's not bad luck, it's a lie. And it's poisoning hope's life and mine. And it's all my fault, because none of this would be happening if hope and liam knew the truth about their daughter.
Thomas: Hey, you. How you doing?
Douglas: Sorry I got scared.
Thomas: It's nothing to worry about. It's just a nightmare. It's okay. I'm here.
Douglas: Is hope?
Thomas: Well, it's late, so she had to go to bed, too.
Douglas: Did she mean it? Will hope always be here with us?
Thomas: Is that what you want? You love her that much? Then I'll make sure she's always here for you.
Liam: I can't let you do this. I can'T.
Hope: Liam, nobody has made me happier in my life. But a part of me died that night that we lost beth, and I haven't been able to get it back. But the one thing that takes the pain away is knowing that I can give kelly and phoebe and douglas everything that I wanted for her. And I will not deny you the chance of being a fully present father. Those girls adore you.
[ Sobs quietly ] And I can't give you that. Our dream, the family that we imagined... it's gone. But there is another way that I -- I-I can...be a mother. I feel so connected to those children, and phoebe especially, I guess because she's a logan, and... I know you love me, and I know this isn't what you want. But we have to do what is best for our families. And I love you too much to let this go on.
Liam: But you don't -- you don't know the future. You don't know how -- how you're gonna feel in six months or -- or -- or five years. You don't know.
Hope: I know I felt a change, and I've fallen in love.
Liam: Not with --
Hope: No, no. With -- with douglas. With the idea of being a-a maternal figure in his life. I finally see a way past my grief where I can have meaning and a purpose in my life. So please don't fight me on this. Please don't make it harder than it needs to be, because my mind -- my mind is already made up.
Liam: I don'T... I, um... I don't -- I don't want to cause you any pain. I don'T... I don't want to see you suffer.
Hope: So then do this for me, please. Please just go to the girls. And please let me go to douglas.
Liam: This doesn't feel right. Ending our marriage, it doesn't feel right.
[ Hope sniffles ] But I... I see that it's killing you. And I'm not gonna put you through it anymore.
[ Hope sobbing ] But it can't end like this. I'll give you what you want, but it can't -- it can't end like this. Can we -- can -- not like this.
Hope: [ Exclaims ]
Liam: So just, um... um... oh, man. One night.
Hope: [ Sobs ]
Liam: All right? After everything that we've been through, all of our promises, all of our plans, just give me one night where we shut the world out and we make like it was. We watch a movie and we have some dinner.
Hope: [ Laughs, sobs ]
Liam: And, um... and we reminisce, and we... find closure. I think we owe that to ourselves to honor what we mean to each other. Will you do that?
Hope: Yeah. I have loved you more than I have loved anyone in my life. And our marriage was my greatest joy. I mean, I dreamed of it for so long. You know, our lives together, and... our family. Everything would be different. Everything would be so different if we hadn't lost beth, and i just -- [ Sobbing ] If we just still had our little girl. I'm sorry. I just can'T. I'm sorry.
