Provided By Suzanne

Xander: Zoe. You're gonna have to explain to me what I just heard.

Zoe: I can'T.

Xander: Beth is alive? Hope and liam's little girl is alive? Why would you say that? I-I mean, is that why you've been so upset? Look, you know you can tell me anything, so just tell me what's going on.

Liam: Thank you for letting me do this for you.

Hope: Liam, it's beautiful. And I want this time with you, too.

Liam: Wish we had more. But, um... hey, if this really is the end of our marriage, then I want to celebrate it. And I want to honor who we are and what we mean to each other.

Hope: I agree. Heh. It's important. I mean, we've -- we've been through so much.

Liam: And I think we would have gotten through this, too. But if this is the end... let's make the most of it.

Steffy: This is a nice surprise. I've been wondering what you two have been up to.

Thomas: Oh, well, we dropped by the toy store and got a little something for his cousins.

Steffy: Oh, that is so sweet! Thanks, buddy. Ohh!

Douglas: Can I give them to phoebe and kelly?

Steffy: Uh, yeah, once they're up from their nap. How does that sound?

Douglas: Phoebe and kelly are so lucky.

Steffy: Yeah, they're lucky to have a thoughtful cousin like you.

Douglas: They have their mommy.

Steffy: You miss your mommy a lot? She was a special person. And she'd be really proud of how brave you've been.

Douglas: Hope says that, too.

Steffy: And you like spending time with hope, huh?

Douglas: I love her.

Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Thomas: And she loves you, too, buddy.

[ Baby babbles on monitor ]

Steffy: Oh!

[ Singsong voice ] The girls are awake! Do you want to give them their presents?

Douglas: Yes!

Steffy: Okay. Let's go. Come on. It's perfect.

Liam: I-I -- I actually thought about, you know, making reservations somewhere and really doing it up, but... the truth is, this made the most sense, you know? We -- we have so many memories here, we made so many plans here. It's our sanctuary, this little cabin in the woods.

Hope: It was more than that. This was our home. And if things had worked out, it would have been beth's home, too.

Xander: Hope and liam lost their little girl in childbirth. She was a stillborn. You know that. You know what happened. I mean, they were devastated. Hope still hasn't recovered. So why would you say something so outrageous?

Zoe: I just need you to leave this alone. Please, xander, just forget you heard anything.

Xander: No. No. I have been asking you what's wrong for weeks, and you keep putting me off. So not this time. I need to know, why did you say that beth is alive?

Zoe: [ Sobs quietly ] Because it's true. Beth is alive.

Thomas: I think phoebe fell back to sleep.

Steffy: Oh, I'm probably gonna regret that later, but I'll just let them be.

[ Both chuckle ] Here.

Thomas: Uh, kelly actually made a pile of books to read with douglas.

Steffy: Aww, really?

Thomas: I know. I'm so glad they're gonna grow up together.

Steffy: Yeah, me too. They're gonna be surrounded by so much love.

Thomas: Yeah.

Steffy: Hope and douglas, they, uh, have quite the bond.

Thomas: Yeah. Hope's been amazing with him. I-I don't know what I would have done without her. Did she tell you about the other night? The night that douglas had a nightmare?

Steffy: Uh, no. But she did tell me she's ending her marriage to liam.

Thomas: And when she does, I'm hoping she'll play an even bigger role in our lives.

Hope: Wow. Wine, music, dinner.

Liam: All the ingredients of an evening we'll never forget. Except for the actual ingredients, because dinner's not done cooking. Sorry.

Hope: I'm in no rush.

Liam: [ Chuckles ]

Liam: I actually got kind of hung up. I was trying to plan the perfect meal, and I wanted it to be something significant to us and -- and our relationship.

Hope: So what did you choose?

Liam: Well, I know what a big fan you are of vegan barbecue...

Hope: Hmmm.

Liam: ...But...

[ Both laugh ] Italian. Italian. Like our beautiful wedding in polignano a mare. Standing at the edge of the ocean with you, that was, um... yeah, that was the happiest I had ever been.

Hope: Me too.

Liam: It's funny, i kind of thought that feeling would just last forever. It was as if nothing bad would ever happen to us.

Xander: Beth died. Everybody knows that.

Zoe: [ Crying ] I'm so sorry.

Xander: No. This isn't right.

Zoe: You asked. I could never lie to you, xander.

Xander: I don't know why you're doing this.

Zoe: I didn't want to. I didn't want to have anything to do with it. And I never wanted you to find out, for your own good. Okay? So I tried to hide it all this time, and now look what I've done.

Xander: Zoe -- zoe, you have to calm down, okay? What you're saying doesn't make any sense. You're talking crazy.

Zoe: It's my dad. Okay? You remember? He was with hope that night in catalina, at the clinic.

Xander: Yeah, the night beth died.

Zende: [ Exhales ] You know how my father is.

[ Stammers, sighs ] I told you, it was the gambling and the bad decisions, and... he was in serious trouble, xander. People were threatening him and threatening me. He was desperate. So he did something. The worst thing he's ever done in his life.

Xander: What?

Zende: He told hope and liam that their baby didn't make it.

[ Sobs ] But beth was fine, xander. She was fine.

Xander: Beth...is alive?

Zoe: It was all a lie. A terrible lie.

Xander: Your dad's a doctor. Why would he lie about hope's baby? Was she sick or something?

Zoe: No. I told you, he just got mixed up with some horrible people. They were threatening to hurt me if they didn't get their money.

Xander: Money?

Zoe: $250,000. He didn't have it, and they were following me, sending him photos.

Xander: So where's beth?

Zoe: He did this to protect me, xander.

Xander: What happened to the baby, zoe? If she didn't die, where is she?

Zoe: I tried to get him to confess, to admit what he did, but my dad --

Xander: Wait, did he sell her?! Is that how he got the money?

Zoe: I didn't know. Okay? I found out when he --

Xander: Oh, my god...

Zoe: I should have said something the moment I found out. I know --

Xander: He sold hope's baby to criminals?!

Zoe: No. They just wanted their money, okay? She is fine. Beth is safe.

Xander: Wh-what -- what do you mean? You -- you know where she is?

Zoe: You don't have to worry. Okay? She's being taken care of.

Xander: By who?

Zoe: She's in a new home, okay, with good people. She isn't suffering, xander. Okay? She's in a new family. With a loving mother. Right here in los angeles.

Steffy: Douglas has quite the audience now. Kelly and phoebe.

Thomas: [ Groans ]

Steffy: He just keeps singing to them. He's so sweet.

Thomas: Yeah, he is.

Steffy: [ Sighs ] I'm glad he hasn't lost that.

Thomas: Yeah, I was concerned about that, too. You know, how -- how the grief would affect him. Um... you know, I was afraid that he... he would feel isolated. You know, like people wouldn't understand. But then he started spending time with hope.

Steffy: Well, he's grieving for his mom, and hope is grieving for beth.

Thomas: Yeah. She got him to open up, you know, talk about his feelings. She even told him it was okay to feel happy.

Steffy: That's good advice. I can see why you want her to play a role in your son's life. But I get the feeling there's more to it for you. Given everything you've been through, I -- I wouldn't be surprised if you were developing feelings for hope.

Thomas: I love her, steffy. She's one woman I've always loved.

[ Dishes clattering ]

Liam: Dinner will be ready soon.

Hope: Thank you for doing all this.

Liam: Well, this is -- this is my way of thanking you. I don't want to get too sentimental. It's early. We've got time for that. But, um... the reason I asked for tonight is because I-I wanted to [Sighs] Show you how grateful I am for all the joy you've brought to my life. And...unfortunately, a lot of that got buried under our grief, but... that's natural. We've been through a lot. We've also had some really, really great memories. I mean, when -- when we first met, you were my best friend in L.A.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. That seems like another lifetime.

Liam: Also seems like yesterday.

Hope: [ Chuckles ]

Liam: When I was planning for today, I kept thinking about italy and all those little towns we walked through.

Hope: [ Gasps ] And everyone wanting to feed us.

Liam: Everyone wanting to feed us. One more gelato, and ridge was gonna have to sew an elastic band on my suit.

Hope: No. You never looked more handsome.

Liam: And you never looked more beautiful than you do right now.

[ Sighs ] I miss your smile. All I ever wanted, really, was to make you smile. And, um... you know, if ending our marriage is the only way to get you out from under all that pain, I'll do it.

[ Voice breaking ] I would do anything to make you happy again.

Steffy: Wow. I thought I was gonna have to drag that out of you.

Thomas: I'm not hiding my feelings about hope. Not from anyone.

Steffy: Even her?

Thomas: I told her myself. And I don't need a lecture about it.

Steffy: Yeah, well, you -- you really have been transparent.

Thomas: Oh, there's too much at stake not to be. Douglas and me, you and your daughters. We have to be honest about everything, steffy. Like, what we want, what we need. Our children's futures depend on it. I mean, why is this here?

Steffy: It... it's for kelly, so she can see how -- how much her parents care about each other.

Thomas: [ Scoffs ] This isn't about your past. You put this here because it reminds you what you want in the future. Okay, I get it. You're tough. You're independent. You can do this on your own. But when you look at this, you think about having liam back, having your family back together. Look, hope is ending her marriage. She's free to do whatever she wants. So is he. If you want him here, you have to tell him. If you want liam back, it can happen.

Hope: This is delicious, liam.

Liam: You know, if I had more time, I would have ordered some of those cheeses that we tried in that -- in that little shop at the top of the hill. Do you remember that?

Hope: [ Gasps ] The hills.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Oh, my gosh. There were so many hills.

Liam: Yeah. When you got to the top and you looked out over the sea, that view was -- was magnificent.

Hope: Nothing compares to our wedding in puglia. You remember the whole town followed us down to the water?

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: And -- and there were all those, um, kites and flags. It was magical. It's one of the most beautiful moments of my life.

Liam: Mine, too. Remember the lock we put on the bridge? Bet you it's still there.

Hope: I hope so. Because it's still true. Liam, you're the love of my life, and that -- that will never change. This last time we got married, I-I really did believe it would be the last time, because we overcame so many mistakes and misunderstandings, and our love, it survived it all. And I wasn't naive. I-I knew there would be challenges. But... what we've been through, losing beth... sorry. I promised myself I wouldn't make this a sad occasion.

[ Sniffles ] Because that's not how I feel when I think of you.

Hope: I am blessed to have shared all the time that we've shared together. I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have been loved by you, and to have loved you. I just -- I wanted more. I wanted our life together. I wanted our family. I wanted beth.

Xander: Beth... is alive? H-here in los angeles?

Zoe: Look, she was adopted into a loving, wonderful home --

Xander: Wait, wait, wait. Do you know who adopted her? Look, I need to know, zoe. I need to know she's okay.

Zoe: Yes. I know who's raising beth. And you know them, too.

Xander: What?

Zoe: If I tell you [Sighs] You'll understand why I haven't been able to say anything. Why I couldn'T. It was too late when I found out. My dad had already left town, and the adoption was final. If we said anything, so many lives would be ruined. Innocent people. Okay? They didn't know.

Xander: Who didn't know?

Zoe: She. She didn't know. Okay? My dad made it look legitimate. And everyone thought that beth was dead.

[ Exhales ] And no one could suspect us.

Xander: Okay, someone has hope's baby. Who is it?

Zoe: Steffy. Beth is with steffy.

Xander: Steffy? Wh-- ste... s-st-- steffy forrester?

[ Sighs ] So y-you're saying that phoebe --

Zoe: Yeah. Steffy is raising hope's little girl.

Xander: Phoebe is actually beth? Hope needs to know. How could you keep this a secret?! We have to tell hope her baby's alive!
