Liam: Steffy, the night that we spent together, the timing of it, I know you wanna believe that the baby's finn's, but we both know there's a chance it could be mine.

Thomas: Well--

[ Clears throat ] You know, I'm, uh-- I'm not sure I deserve all this. My dad and brooke letting me come back and stay here.

[ Laughs ] I'm a lucky guy.

Hope: You also just got out of a hospital, and it's not exactly safe for you to be living alone right now.

Thomas: Brain surgery. I just--I still can't believe it.

Hope: Yeah. So you rest up as long as you need to. Okay?

Thomas: Actually, the doctors say I should be, uh, moving.

[ Grunts ] So... no more being a little... couch potato.

Hope: Wow. Look at you, feeling better already.

Thomas: [ Laughs ] Yeah. Well, my friends and my family have given me strength, and I couldn't have done it without everyone's love and support. Especially yours, hope.

Zende: You're leaving?

Paris: It's-- it's for the best.

Zende: For the best? Where you gonna go? You don't really wanna leave, do you? I can't let you just walk out of here and say goodbye.

Paris: Zende.

Zende: Wait a second. Are you being super vague because it's me? Am I the one who's driving you away?

Paris: Right. As if.

Zende: Well, then, why do you think that you have to go?

Zoe: I don't want my sister here.

Carter: Yeah. I'm getting that.

Zoe: Okay. Great then. Then we don't have anything else to talk about.

Carter: Did I screw up, zoe?

Zoe: No. No, no. I know you were just trying to help out paris, and I'm not mad at you.

Carter: I thought it'd be the perfect scenario. Paris gets a job here at forrester. You have your sister around. But it's not what you want. You need to tell me why.

Thomas: I can't believe we're even having this conversation after everything that's happened.

Hope: Well, let's just keep moving forward.

Thomas: And we can actually do that because of you. I did a lot of things to hurt our relationship, but even after that, you-- you allowed me to come back to the company. You let me be a father to douglas because there is no judgment from you, and... that means more than anything.

Liam: How could I ever think hope was kissing your brother?

Steffy: Liam, it was a misunderstanding. No one would have ever expected thomas was kissing a mannequin. I mean, come on. You thought he was kissing hope, okay? And the way thomas was acting, I mean-- I don't know. It made sense. And now look. We're--

Liam: Now you're pregnant.

Steffy: Yeah.

Kids can change minds.

Carter: Look, zoe, um... I don't wanna pressure you into talking about something you'd rather not be talking about.

Zoe: Thank you.

Carter: But I also don't want there to be bad blood between you and paris.

Zoe: There's no bad blood. We get along. Look, I--I just-- I don't understand. You were thrilled when she first came to town. There's a reason you don't want her working here.

Zoe: It doesn't matter.

Carter: Zoe, what is this? I-I-I-I don't get it. Why are you so adamant she not accept ridge's offer?

Zende: I will convince you to stay somehow, some way.

Paris: Well, if there's anyone who could, it'd probably be you.

Zende: Probably? I can be pretty persuasive.

Paris: Yeah, you did convince that charlie guy to wash your car.

Zende: I paid him 60 bucks. I'm not really sure who came out ahead on that one.

Paris: How do you like that car, by the way? I'm actually in the market for one.

Zende: No. No, no, no, no. I see what you're doing. You're changing the subject. Are you seriously going to make me keep guessing? 'Cause I've got all day. I will be grilling you with millions of questions.

Paris: It's just kind of out of my hands. You're being really mysterious.

Paris: I don't mean to be. I actually wish we could've been celebrating right now.

Zende: Celebrating?

Paris: [ Sighs ] I got a job offer.

Zende: A job offer? That's amazing. Where?

Paris: Here.

Zende: Here in L.A.?

Paris: No. Here.

Zende: At forrester. Why, that's--that's incredible. You can't leave now. You have to stay.

Thomas: So, still no word from liam?

Hope: Not yet. I just--I'm wondering what steffy wanted to see him about.

Steffy: I can't believe this. You're married, and I'm with finn.

Liam: And we both know that what we did was wrong. We know that. Right? Especially me. Because I betrayed vows.

Steffy: You misinterpreted something, and then you reacted. We both reacted.

Liam: No, no. But this is my fault. Right? It's not your fault. It's my fault.

Steffy: Does it even matter now?

Liam: Yes, steffy. Yes, it matters because I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions.

Steffy: Well, we can't go back now. Especially now.

Liam: Yeah, because you're pregnant, so... damn it. I'm sor--I'm sorry. You're pregnant, and I realize that you're hoping the baby is finn'S.

Steffy: Yes. He and I have been together for a while now. So either he's gonna be a father for the first time, or your whole world is about to be turned upside down. Well, one way or another, we have to find out. And they have to know what we did, steffy. We can't just-- we can't do this anymore. We can't just keep this secret. Listen. You're a good person. This has to be tearing you up inside just as much as it is me. And I know what you keep saying. That we should wait for the paternity test. But that doesn't change what we did, steffy. It doesn't change what we owe to them. Hope and finn, they deserve to know the truth now. Thousands of women with metastatic breast cancer,

Zende: You got a job offer here?

Paris: Can you believe it?

Zende: No. I had no idea. Not that you wouldn't be a fantastic addition. Which department?

Paris: The forrester foundation.

Zende: That's huge. The foundation is extremely important to the family.

Paris: It is a very prestigious offer.

Zende: Ridge had to have been impressed by your résumé.

Paris: Well, it--it seemed that way. And carter put in a good word.

Zende: So why aren't we popping bottles? This is the best news I've heard all day.

Paris: [ Sighs ] Yeah, that's the thing.

Zende: Hmm. And what's the hesitation? I know you're not intimidated, and ridge would not have offered the job if he didn't think you weren't qualified.

Paris: No, no. I-- I can definitely handle it. I mean, I've been preparing for a job like this for years.

Zende: This is the ideal situation. I mean, forrester gets the best social advocate in town, and you get paid for doing what you love. I'm super psyched for you, paris. I can't think of anyone better suited for this than you. You're going to be awesome. You're taking the position. You're not going anywhere.

Thomas: Are you still wondering why liam hasn't checked in?

Hope: We don't have that kind of relationship, thomas. All right? Liam and I, we trust each other, and he just probably hasn't had a chance to text me back yet.

Thomas: Well, you were pretty anxious about it earlier. And understandably so. I mean, it would be nice to know that everything is okay over at steffy'S.

Hope: Yeah. Well, if something did happen, I know that liam will tell me.

Thomas: You have a lot of faith in him.

Hope: Well, I should hope so. He is my husband.

Thomas: Yeah. You don't think it-- I don't know--that it's weird he got so riled up when he thought he saw us kissing?

Hope: Well, wouldn't anyone if they thought they saw their wife kissing someone else?

Thomas: Yes. They would react, wouldn't they? And then they'd probably confront the people.& But he didn't do that. He just, like, walked away. I don't know. It's weird to me. But liam's a weird dude. He spends an awful lot of time over at steffy'S. And, yeah, I get it. They--they share a child, so they'd be bonder forever.

Hope: Yes. Steffy will always be a part of our life because of the life they created. And I adore kelly, and our family wouldn't be the same without her. And, honestly, I'm-- I'm really proud of how far steffy and I have come. You know, we've built a mutual respect for each other.

Thomas: Well, it must be comforting to have such faith in your relationship. You know, uh, you deserve someone who is committed to you and your well-being.

Hope: And, thankfully, liam is that man.

Thomas: I certainly hope so because... I don't want to ever see you get hurt.

Liam: I gotta come clean to hope. And I'm sorry, steffy. I know it's not what you want, but I can't--I can't just keep lying.

Steffy: I don't want this to destroy your relationship.

Liam: You didn't do this. I did this.

Steffy: I don't think finn or hope will see it that way.

Liam: Yeah, I know-- well, I know, but... we have to explain it to them.

Steffy: I don't wanna hurt anybody. And when I think about what this could do to beth and douglas, it kills me.

Liam: I don't wanna hurt anybody. It kills me to think how devastated hope is gonna be, but I can't keep swallowing this. And, honestly, I don't think you can either.

Liam: I know-- I know your reasoning. I know how important it is to you to keep quiet, but... this has gotta be weighing on you, too.

Steffy: Yeah, it is. I mean, especially since I found out I was pregnant. You know, I love finn. And if this baby is his, which I pray to god it is, he deserves to be part of it, and...

Liam: What are you saying?

Steffy: Well, if it's not, I mean...

Liam: What are you saying?

Steffy: You're right. You're right. They deserve to know.

[ Sighs ] Did you know that some aluminum free

Steffy: I wanted to be able to move on with our lives. There's no reason to tell hope or finn. No good could come of it. But now this child changes everything. I don't want the secret.

[ Sighs ]

Liam: I mean, I can't speak to your relationship with finn, but I'm just praying that after the... shock and pain...

Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Liam: ...And betrayal that hope will, um, wanna find a way to preserve our marriage and our family. I just-- I gotta hope for that.

Steffy: I want that for you. That's why everything has to be out in the open. No more secrets.

Liam: This happened for a reason, you know. You being pregnant. Everything does. But I don't-- I don't want the stress affecting you, especially not now. So we're gonna get the paternity test. Okay? We're gonna find out who the father is, and we'll get the answers we need, but... in the meantime, hope and finn need to know what we've done.

Zende: I am excited for you. This is an incredible opportunity.

Paris: I know. And it's really hard to pass it up.

Zende: Then don'T. This is everything you've been waiting for. The forrester foundation does crucial work at a global scale.

Paris: And it's an incredibly well respected organization.

Paris: I'd love to join the team. And I have so many ideas on how to expand outreach to especially vulnerable and underrepresented parts of the world.

Zende: And why would you even consider turning this down?

Paris: If it were up to me, I would take it in a heartbeat.

Zende: I don't understand. Up to you? Of course it's up to you. I mean, you're not tied down. You don't answer to anyone. Your sister works here. If anyone understands complicated family dynamics-- does zoe have something to do with this? I'll talk to her. You're not passing this up. You're not going anywhere. I won't allow it.

Zoe: [ Sighs ] I know you just want what's best for me.

Carter: Always.

Zoe: And I appreciate that you're so concerned about my relationship with my sister. But, carter, our issues, it's just typical sister stuff. Really, it's no big deal. And I--I hate this because I don't wanna seem like I'm being selfish. It's just--I really want paris to make her own life somewhere else. You know? Not here at forrester.

[ Teakettle whistling ]

Steffy: Oh.

[ Whistling stops ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

Liam: Hope?

Steffy: That night might change our lives forever. I'm pregnant. I'm pregnant.

Hope: Hey. Um, I was just up at the main house. Thomas seems to be doing much better. Um, how is everything with steffy? That phone call seemed really urgent. Is--is kelly okay?

Liam: Um, yeah. Kelly's fine.

Hope: Then why--why did steffy need to see you? Unless it's personal. I understand if she would rather you not tell me. I don't wanna put you in an awkward position.

Liam: I love you.

Hope: I love you, too.

Liam: You're so compassionate. You always think of other people before yourself. I don't know how I ever could have thought you would betray me with thomas of all people.

Hope: Liam. Liam, I told you. It's okay.

Liam: It's not okay. It's not okay.

Hope: What are you talking about?

Liam: Something happened. Um, something that... I need to tell you about, and, uh, I'm-- I'm really hoping that you can find a way to understand.
