Episode #8117 ~ Zoe questions Xander's devotion. Disbelief turns to anger when Thomas realizes that Steffy unwittingly has Hope's baby.
Provided By SuzanneFlo: I'm sorry. Okay? I'm so sorry. I never imagined that, when reese called and asked for my help, that it would -- it would turn into all of this.
Thomas: The man stole a baby, flo. He passed her off as yours.
Flo: He was being threatened. He was -- they -- they were threatening to hurt his daughter.
Thomas: 'Cause he owed them money. Gambling debts.
Flo: I never should have let him manipulate me. But he was -- he was a friend, and I didn't think that he would --
Thomas: "Friend"? You call someone who'd do that a friend? He put a stillborn infant in her arms. He had her believe it was hers. When, all along, beth was alive, and soon to be adopted by my sister. Steffy is raising hope and liam's daughter.
Steffy: Was that a yawn? Am I seeing a yawn, or is that just wishful thinking?
Liam: [ Chuckles ] I don't know. But kelly was yawning a minute ago.
Liam: You know what that means, right?
Liam: Lullaby doesn't have to be in tune to work.
Steffy: Oh, so, what, we were off-key?
Liam: I-I'm saying I was off-key.
Steffy: Yeah, you were.
Steffy: [ Chuckles ] Thanks for the help. These little divas can be a handful sometimes.
Liam: Are you kidding? This is the stuff I live for.
Steffy: [ Chuckles softly ]
Liam: Holding our little girls, watching them play and smile. Mommy knows daddy's always gonna be around to help out, huh?
Steffy: Heh. Yeah, mommy appreciates that. And so does phoebe.
Steffy: Isn't that right? My sweet little angel. Mm. [ Smooching ] Oh! What, you want more?
Steffy: [ Giggles ]
Xander: I-I realize there's no guarantee of what hope and liam will do when they're told the truth. But -- but I'm hoping --
Zoe: You're hoping for what flo and I are hoping for -- that we don't end up behind bars. But what about my dad? I mean, is it okay for him to be in prison for years?
[ Sobs ] Do you not care about him at all?
Xander: No. Not really. I mean, I know you care about him. That's the only reason that you could keep this -- this awful secret. But, zoe, the man played with people's lives when he had no right to.
Zoe: Look, I understand the damage that he's done, but --
Xander: No! No, please. No more buts. The truth should have come out when you first found out. Not that I'm blaming you. I understand the position that your father put you in. Flo, too. But... you've seen hope and liam's grief. And think of steffy. I mean, she's bonding with hope's little girl. Every day, she falls more and more in love with that baby. The sooner steffy knows the truth, the better.
Steffy: If I could take a wild guess, I think your first words are gonna be... "cha, cha, cha."
Liam: [ Snickers ] "Cha, cha, cha"? Going with that? Not, like, "mama"?
Steffy: Ohh. I'd love "mama." 'Cause this mama is so proud. I couldn't love you more if I had given birth to you. Some days I-I feel like I did.
Liam: How so?
Steffy: I don't think of phoebe having a -- another birth mom. I just... I think that, when I signed the adoption papers, she was mine. Yeah, that's right.
Liam: [ Chuckles ]
Steffy: [ Giggles ]
Steffy: As much part of this family as anyone, including kelly.
[ Kelly fussing ]
Liam: Oh, boy. Ohh! I know.
Steffy: They're ready for sleep.
[ Phoebe babbles ]
Liam: Sometimes when I look at phoebe, I -- I just feel like I'm her dad, you know?
Steffy: Well, that's because you are. You love her as if she were your own. I know phoebe feels that way.
[ Phoebe babbles ] Yeah.
Liam: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.
Steffy: You're lucky to have him, right? You're lucky to have liam as your daddy.
[ Groans happily ]
Steffy: [ Gasps ]
Liam: She said "dada"! She said "dada."
Flo: I know it's a complete shock. It still is for me, too.
Thomas: You kept quiet for months, flo. How could you do that to hope? I mean, she's your cousin.
Flo: I tried to tell her so many times. Look, I -- I'm not trying to make excuses for myself, but... I know I should have found a way to tell her.
Thomas: Ya think?!
[ Scoffs ] You could've saved hope a lot of grief.
Flo: I know! I know. I -- if I had just gone to them from the very beginning and told them the truth, then hope and liam would still have their daughter, and they'd still have their marriage. And beth --
Thomas: Beth. Beth would be with her family. While my sister, the only mother that she's ever known, would find herself deep in grief. Losing a baby she's come to love so much.
Flo: Thomas --
Thomas: No, don'T. Don't apologize to me again. Look, I-I know you're not a bad person. You were just put in what felt like an impossible position. But there's so many people involved. And now...
Flo: Now what? Thomas, what are you gonna do? (Christine) my son really had to
Zoe: Xander, please, if you love me --
Xander: Look, you know I do. That's why I promise I will try and make hope and liam understand that -- that you were just a victim in all of this. Flo, too. Look, things are spiraling more and more out of control. I mean, when I got to brooke's house, hope and liam were signing annulment papers. Papers that they wouldn't even be signing if they knew the truth about their little girl. Look, hope is grieving, and -- and liam is really struggling. But we can make it right. We can change all of that. I mean, we owe it to them. We owe it to beth. Y-you have to get that.
Zoe: Of course I do! But it's been months. That little girl isn't beth. She is phoebe now. And she is in a wonderful home, and has a loving mother in steffy. And to disrupt that now... we have to keep quiet.
Steffy: Do you believe phoebe? She has to be the happiest baby ever.
Liam: I thought kelly was the happiest baby ever.
Steffy: Well, kelly is the happiest baby ever. She's happiest big sister, and phoebe's the happiest little sister.
Liam: [ Snorts ] Okay.
Steffy: They're both the happiest.
[ Laughs ]
Liam: Glad -- glad we cleared that up, thanks.
Steffy: So, you want to tell me the other reason you, uh, came by? Other than just seeing the girls?
Liam: How'd you know there's another reason?
Steffy: How long have we known each other? I'm pretty good at reading you, liam.
Liam: Hope and I signed the annulment papers.
Steffy: [ Gasps ] Oh, my god.
Steffy: Liam, I...
Thomas: I'm not sure you have the right to ask me that.
Flo: I probably don'T. But I'm asking anyway.
Thomas: 'Cause you're worried about yourself. What the truth coming out could mean.
Flo: I'm worried about everyone involved. Steffy, too. Reese and zoe insisted that I keep this a secret, but I -- I have wanted to tell hope for so long. She's my family. I love her.
Thomas: And I love her. And my son loves her. And -- and he needs a mother. And hope needs a child. And I thought that douglas could be that child. But now, finding out that beth is alive... I mean, my god, flo. It's been hell for me watching hope go through this, suffer through this pain. But... but I could give her something. I could give her the most incredible news. I could give her her child back. I could do that for her.
Flo: Thomas... you're -- you're gonna tell hope the truth, aren't you? You're gonna tell her that beth is alive. Thomas, that's -- that's what you're gonna do, isn't it?
Xander: As much as I care about you, zoe, I can't do what you're asking.
Zoe: Yes. Yes, you can. Okay? You can forget you know anything about this. You can pretend you never learned the truth about beth.
Xander: That's not possible. I can't just not know.
Steffy: I'm so sorry, liam. This has to be tough for both of you.
Liam: Yeah, I mean, you know, it's -- it's not what I want. It's not what hope wants. I mean, we still love each other as much as we ever did. But I just realized I-I have to give hope what she needs if she has any chance of... you know.
Steffy: Hey, is there anything I can do?
Liam: No. Just knowing I have your support, it's nice.
Steffy: You'll always have that. And you know what else you have? Two little girls who love you very much.
Liam: [ Chuckles ]
Steffy: Who think they have the best dad in the world. So, uh, where you staying?
Liam: Uh... [ Sighs ] I-I don't know. I don't -- I don't really have a plan yet.
Steffy: Well, you know I -- I have a guest room. You're more than welcome to stay here with the girls.
Thomas: You had to know this day would come. Secrets have a way of coming out.
Flo: I know. And I guess I-I kind of want this one to come out. But if -- if -- if I'm being honest with you here, if it wasn't for this awful secret I've been carrying around...
Thomas: [ Scoffs ] Your life would be a dream?
Flo: Yeah. I have -- I have everything that anyone could ever want. I have this whole new extended family, the logans, who've just welcomed me with open arms. I have this job at forrester creations, and I'm living here. And I -- I found love again. With wyatt. And I really do think that we could have a future together. But if they know what I've known all along, then...
Thomas: You'll lose it all.
Flo: They would hate me. They would have every single right to. I hate myself for keeping quiet.
Thomas: [ Sighs ] And for asking me to?
Flo: No. I'M... I'm not asking that of you. I-I just...
Flo: I know how you feel about hope. If you tell them the truth, then hope and liam are gonna get back together, and they're gonna start a life with beth. Which means that --
Thomas: I realize. I've thought about this, okay? If I tell everyone, then -- then
[Sighs] It ruins any future of douglas, hope, and myself. I also realize that steffy loves that little girl, and it would kill her to find out. It also ruins any chance of steffy and liam reuniting. But this secret, it has to come out. Hope's agony has to end. And I know this is gonna hurt steffy. And I hate to put her in pain. But phoebe isn't who she thinks she is.
[ Exclaims ] Her little girl is -- is hope's little girl. I have to tell my sister. I have to tell hope.
Zoe: Okay, so, what's with the urgent text? Why did you want us to come see you right away?
Xander: Wait, did something happen? I mean, did you go to hope and lia--
Zoe: Okay, shhh! Someone could overhear.
Flo: No one's here. It's okay.
Xander: Well? Does hope know the truth?
Flo: Not yet. But she's probably gonna find out soon from thomas.
Flo: He was just here. I thought he came over to see his grandfather, but he came for me.
Xander: She needs to know that flo wasn't --
Thomas: Flo wasn't what?
Xander: Oh, no. Um... when -- when I went to brooke's, he stopped me from telling hope and liam not to sign the annulment papers.
Flo: [ Sighs ]
Xander: I mentioned your name. I-I mean, it was fast. It was just for a second. And I-I -- I pulled back as soon as I knew --
Zoe: Okay, what did thomas ask you?
Flo: Well -- well, he knew that -- he knew that xander knew something. And he came here and he hounded me about it, and he said he wouldn't leave until he found out.
Zoe: What did you do, flo? Oh, god. Please tell me you did not tell thomas about beth.
Flo: I did. I told thomas. He knows everything.
Zoe: How could you?
Flo: How could I not?! This involves his family, too. They deserve to know.
Zoe: Okay, so where is he? Where is he now?
Flo: He just left. I don't know. He's probably on his way to steffy'S. He said he needs to tell his sister, and he needs to tell hope the truth.
Steffy: No pressure. But I-I just want you to know that you have a place here if you want to be close to the girls.
Liam: If I say yes, does that mean I get to read kelly and phoebe a bedtime story every night forever?
Steffy: Oh, they would love that.
Liam: [ Laughs ] Well, how can I say no to that?
Steffy: So, does that mean you're gonna stay with us?
Liam: Yeah, I-I'd like that. Very much.
Steffy: The girls will be thrilled.
Liam: Actually, I think it'll be good for me. I mean, it's no secret that I'm still struggling to process the end of my marriage, but spending time with kelly and phoebe is also what hope wants. It's -- it's the reason that we went our separate ways.
Steffy: Well, you know we'll always be family. This will always be your home, liam.
[ Phoebe cooing on monitor ]
Liam: Ooh. Looks like miss phoebe was just ticking us into thinking she's asleep.
Steffy: Here, I'll -- I'll go.
Liam: No, no. No. I got this. I got it.
[ Knock on door ]
Steffy: What, you're, like, not gonna say hi?
Thomas: There's something i need to tell you.
Thomas: It's a-- it's about that night on catalina, when hope lost her baby.
Steffy: What about it?
Thomas: There's no easy way to do this. There's -- [ Scoffs ] There's no easy way to say what I have to say. Okay, look, I-I love you, steffy. You're my sister, and I would do anything to protect you. But this time I can'T. What I'm gonna tell you, it's gonna change your life -- your life and kelly and phoebe's lives -- forever.
