Liam: Thanks for coming over, man.
Wyatt: What, are you kidding me? Any chance to spend some time with my favorite niece or her adorable little sis, I'll take.
Liam: Uh, kelly is not -- is not here. Steffy took her for a routine check-up.
Liam: And amelia got held up picking her car up from the shop, so I'm just watching phoebe right now.
Wyatt: She napping?
Liam: Yeah, but she'll be up really soon.
Wyatt: Right. So, uh... about what we were talking about the other day...
Wyatt: You were...
Wyatt: ...Planning a special goodbye dinner with hope. Is that still happening? You're ending your marriage and all that? Or has something changed?
Liam: [ Sighs ] I wish something had changed. No, no, hope still says this is what she needs.
Wyatt: Even if giving her what she needs is killing you?
Carter: These are the copies you asked me to draw up for the annulment. There's still some things we should go over in more detail.
Hope: Of course. Thank you for doing this so quickly, carter.
Carter: Yeah. "Quickly" is right. Not even a divorce, an annulment, like it never happened.
Hope: It's just easier this way. I'm not asking for anything. I just want it to be done.
Carter: It seems you want the marriage over as soon as possible.
Hope: I don't, though. I don't want this marriage to end. I still love liam, and he still loves me.
Carter: So why do this, hope? I get you two have been through a lot, but this should be a last resort. Are you absolutely certain that there's no other way for you and liam, short of getting an annulment?
Flo: Xander knows? Your boyfriend knows?
Flo: God, zoe, why? Why would you tell him?
Zoe: I didn't! He overheard us talking.
Flo: What do you mean, he overheard?
Zoe: It doesn't matter how it happened. The point is, xander knows everything now.
Flo: [ Sighs ] What did he say? How did he react?
Zoe: How do you think? He was horrified, just sickened by it.
Flo: [ Sighs ] Oh, god, of course he would be. Well, what is he gonna do?
Zoe: I don't know. I don't know.
Wyatt: Okay, you -- [ Sighs ] Look, you say this is what hope needs, but what about what you need? You -- you don't -- you don't have to be the hero all the time, bro. You don'T. Like, you have every right to --
Liam: To what, keep fighting for my marriage, even after hope's told me over and over and over --
Wyatt: Yes! Yes! Fight! I know you don't want to end your marriage. And hope doesn't want that, either. She's just, like -- she's -- she's, I don't know, convincing herself that this is what's --
Liam: I know what you're doing right now, all right? And, bro, I love you for it. But...
Wyatt: [ Scoffs ]
Liam: [ Sighs ] What it comes down to for me is this -- I can't watch my wife suffer anymore. I can'T. I can't do it. All right? And as much as it kills me... we're done.
Hope: Carter, I know you mean well.
Carter: But I should keep my well-intentioned, though unsolicited advice to myself.
Hope: No. I appreciate that you care so much.
Carter: You and liam are two of my favorite people. When I officiated your wedding, I just knew that if there was ever a couple who can last forever... it was you two.
Hope: So did I. I had so many dreams for us, for our marriage, for beth. You know, I was carrying her when we got married. But the life I had envisioned for all of us died with her that horrible night on catalina, and, try as we might, we haven't been able to recover.
Carter: Maybe you could just try a little longer. Postpone the filing of the annulment until you've had time --
Thomas: Why should hope postpone? Sorry, I couldn't help overhearing.
Carter: The point I was making is that --
Thomas: Hope's made her decision, carter, and it's been a difficult one. Let's not make it harder by second-guessing her.
Flo: What do you mean, you don't know what xander's gonna do?
Zoe: Okay, I've been calling and texting. He hasn't responded. For all I know, he...
Flo: He could have gone to hope and liam already and told them everything.
Zoe: Okay, if that would have happened, we would have had found out something by now.
Flo: No, you -- you don't know that. You don't know that until you speak to xander.
Xander: Speak to me about what?
Zoe: Xander. Oh, my god. I've been so worried about you. Why haven't you been responding to my messages?
Xander: [ Sighs ]
Zoe: Are you all right?
Xander: You can seriously ask me that, knowing what I know now? Okay, let me make sure that I've got this right. A mother believes that her little girl died in childbirth, a little girl that she couldn't wait to bring into this world, to love and nurture and raise. Then a man, because of his own failings, decides to change the entire course of that little girl's life, and her mother's, forever, by lying, right? By making her believe that her baby was a stillborn! When she wasn'T. Then he just gives the baby away, but for a price, leaving that little girl's mother and father with the deepest despair imaginable, a loss so devastating that it's impacted every aspect of their lives, including a marriage. A marriage that's ending but wouldn't be if they knew the truth, a truth you want me to keep from them! Am I missing anything? So you ask if I'm all right. Well, zoe, no, I'm not all right. And I won't be until this secret isn't a secret anymore.
Wyatt: Look, I hear every word that you're saying, bro, but there's -- there's got to be a part of you that -- that is hurt by this, that's disappointed that hope has given up on the two of you.
Liam: [ Sighs ] I'll tell you what hurts -- living with hope day in, day out, seeing the pain she's in and knowing that there's nothing I can do to take that pain away.
Wyatt: It's not like you haven't tried! You've done everything humanly possible to do --
Liam: Except what I'm doing now. Letting her go. Maybe that's the only thing i can do that'll make a difference.
Wyatt: I don't know, I hope you're right. I mean, I hope you know what you're doing because what it's costing you and what it's costing hope is --
Liam: Is where we're at. It's not what hope and i envisioned when we found out that we were having a baby or when we learned it was gonna be a girl, but this -- this is the reality we live in now. Could hope possibly have another child? Yes. Yes, of course, but -- but the thought of getting pregnant again is too painful for hope, and I can't -- I can't push it, man. I just -- I can'T. It's too hard for her. I want hope's heart to heal. And if sacrificing our marriage is the only way to do that... wyatt, I'm gonna do whatever it takes to give hope the peace she deserves.
Carter: Look, I'm not trying to prolong anything. I just hate to see a marriage end, especially one like liam and hope'S. Thomas, if there's any possible way --
Thomas: Look, hope is saying that there isn'T. She's agonized over this decision, and, ultimately, for everyone's sake, this is how it has to be. Not that I speak for you.
Hope: I know. Carter is being a good friend, as well as a good attorney.
Thomas: Uh, when will liam get those?
Carter: It's up to hope. It's on her timetable, not mine.
Hope: [ Sighs ] I knew this would be hard, but... looking at these words in black and white...
[ Sighs ] When you marry, you never imagine this moment happening. You always think you're gonna have that person by your side, that you pledged your life to. Especially when you love someone as much as I love liam. But I can't give him a family. That chance has come and gone, and the family we planned with beth... can never happen.
Zoe: Xander, I hate putting you in this position, but if you tell hope and liam that their daughter is alive...
Xander: It shouldn't be my job to do that! I mean, you and flo have known, what, how long? And you've just stood by and watched liam and hope in agony. I mean, is it any wonder why I --
Zoe: Why you what? Are you saying they do know? That you --
Xander: No. No, I had every intention of telling them. Because they deserve the truth. But I'm concerned about you. Okay? I love you, zoe.
Zoe: I love you, too, okay? I don't want you to be disillusioned with me, but... my father could go to jail. And so could flo and I, okay? We all hate what has happened, but... phoebe's in a loving home, and steffy is a wonderful mom to her.
Xander: But hope is her mom! I mean, beth is just waiting to be reunited with her parents!
Flo: Xander, the way you say that, it sounds like...
Zoe: You're not gonna keep this secret, are you? You've decided, no matter what the consequence, liam and hope should know. You're probably trying to track them down right now. Aren't you?
Thomas: It'll be okay, hope. It's not like you're springing this on liam out of the blue.
Hope: No, I know, but I still think maybe I should have called and told him that carter was on his way, or... I don't know, waited a few more days.
Thomas: Waiting won't make things easier. For liam or for you. You're doing the right thing. You're putting kelly and phoebe first.
Hope: I realize that, but... it still breaks my heart, thinking of liam receiving annulment papers from me.
Liam: Uh, well, carter, you're out of luck. Steffy's not here, so whatever forrester business you have might have to wait.
Carter: I'm not here to see steffy.
Wyatt: What's going on, carter?
Carter: You know I felt terrible for you and hope during all of this, right? That's what makes this so damn hard. I'm sorry, liam. I really am.
Zoe: Please, don't do this, xander, okay? I -- I get if you might feel that --
Pam: Sorry to interrupt, but, zoe, benj is waiting for you.
Pam: Hello? Benj, the new photographer we've been trying out. He wants to reshoot some of your setups, so come on.
[ Scoffs ] Zoe, what are waiting for? Shake a leg, girl. Come on!
Xander: Uh, go. Yeah, I want to speak to flo alone anyway, so...
[ Door closes ]
Flo: Okay, look, xander, I -- I know what you must be thinking, but, I swear, I did not know what I was getting myself into when zoe's dad called me asking for help. If I had known that reese wanted me to help him steal a baby --
Xander: Just stop! Okay? Please. I'm -- I'm not here to judge. I can tell this secret's eating you alive. But I can also tell that you know what has to be done. Hope and liam can't be denied the truth any longer. I mean, it's just cruel. It's inhumane. And it needs to end now. Before any more damage is done.
Liam: I can't believe it's come to this. First beth, and now our marriage. How much more do hope and I have to lose before someone breaks our way?
Carter: I delivered the copies of the annulment papers to liam. Here's your copy.
Hope: How did he handle it?
Carter: Well, I know how much it hurt him, how much liam still loves you and wants your marriage.
Hope: Thanks, carter.
Carter: Well, we'll still need to meet up with liam to sign the paperwork. Let me know if you need anything. Or if you change your mind.
Hope: What am I doing, pushing away the love of my life?
Thomas: Hope, listen to me. Look, I know it's not easy to let go, but putting the kids' needs, putting my son's needs ahead of your own, that's the most selfless thing a person could do, and that's who you are. You're this amazing, selfless woman.
Hope: Well, I don't really feel selfless right now. I feel heartbroken. Because I know that the love i share with him, I will never experience with any other man. And none of this would be happening if beth were still here.
Xander: I understand that zoe's trying to protect her father, so she isn't thinking straight. But what reese did, it's insane.
Flo: I hate what he did. I hate what he roped me into. Hope and I are cousins, and i have grown to really, really, really care about her. It is absolutely tearing me apart inside, seeing her suffer the way she is.
Xander: Then do something!
Flo: I have! I've tried! I've tried so many times! Don't you think I haven't tried? I have tried to tell hope so many times.
Xander: Then why didn't you? What? Zoe? She stopped you?
Flo: Zoe, reese. Yeah. I mean, you heard her. There's so much at stake. All three of us could go to prison. And it's not just that, it's this... I could lose my new family, this -- this incredible family that has just welcomed me so easily into their lives. They would never understand why --
Xander: You don't know how the logans will react! You don't know how hope and liam will react. They may be able to forgive the unforgivable. But I promise, I will speak to them on your behalf. And zoe'S. Look, I believe that she's a good person, and I think you are, too, but hope and liam have gone through hell. Don't you see, flo? You can change that. You can stop their suffering, but hope, she has to hear it from you. Those three words. Three words that can change her life forever. "Beth...is...alive." Flo, you can give her the greatest miracle in the world. You can give hope her daughter back!
