Hope: The kids are gone. It's more private down here. Thomas, no one else can know about this.

Thomas: I wasn't trying to eavesdrop on you and liam. But, hope, I--I don't even know what to say.

Hope: Well, it's true, what you heard, liam and steffy.

Thomas: They really did, and she's pregnant?

Hope: Uh-hmm. And liam might be the child's father.

Finn: It's just so hard not knowing who the father is.

Steffy: Well, I told you i have that doctor's appointment. So, we'll find out as soon as possible. You shouldn't be in this position. I hate that I was unfaithful to you.

Finn: Well, we're already here and I'm not looking to go anywhere. I just need to know where I stand with you.

Steffy: Finn, I love you. I wanna be with you. That hasn't changed.

Finn: You need to be completely honest with me.

Steffy: Of course.

Finn: So, if it were up to you, would you want me to be the father or liam?

Liam: No, no. I already explained that to you. Yes, I did. I gave you our terms. This--okay. Listen, this is not--this is not how spencer publications does business and you know it. Okay. All right. You know what? You're not even trying to meet me halfway, bjorn. No, you're not. You're not even trying--well, maybe I'm done negotiating. How about that? Why don't you call me back when you're ready to accept my offer?

Wyatt: Wow. That wasn't the norwegian deal, was it?

Liam: What if it was?

Wyatt: Okay. Wow. What is wrong with you? With--I mean, it can't be that bad.

Steffy: All my life, I've been an independent woman. I've trusted my instincts. I've succeeded at work. But when it comes to hope and liam, I--I felt like a failure, just constantly repeating my mother's cycle. It's like no matter how much she loved him, she--she couldn't have my father. And I don't want that for myself. I don'T. Don't want that for kelly and I certainly don't want that for this baby. I wanna break that cycle.

Finn: Does that mean you're finally ready to break away from liam?

Steffy: [ Sighs ]

Wyatt: Are you all right?

Flo: If we caught you at a bad time, we can--

Liam: No. It's--

Flo: We can come back later.

Liam: Hey, it's--it's not you guys. I promise.

Wyatt: Okay. Then what's up? Because you just sounded like dad there on the phone.

Liam: I didn't mean to. I'm just--I'm having a day, you know?

Wyatt: It's thomas, isn't it?

Liam: Ooh, well, it's--

Wyatt: He's living over at brooke's and you're not happy about it.

Flo: I mean I bet you it's not the best reminder, having to see him there everyday.

Thomas: Liam not only betrayed you, but he did it with steffy.

Hope: I guess he had no choice but to tell me.

Thomas: Right. Yeah, because--because steffy's pregnant. Um, but when there's still a chance, the baby could be finn's, right?

Hope: It's possible. We're not sure yet.

Thomas: I hate that you're going through this. I-- I just wish I could take away your pain. Pain hits fast.

Wyatt: Look, I totally get how upsetting this is for you. But if I had seen my wife making out with somebody else--

Flo: Well, it wasn't just anybody else. It's thomas.

Wyatt: Exactly! If I had seen that--

Liam: I wish I hadn'T. Trust me, I--I would give anything not to have seen that.

Wyatt: I would've flipped out. I would've completely lost it on--

Flo: Okay. Well, you know, it--it's--it's a really good thing it wasn't actually hope.

Wyatt: Yeah, but you heard him. Liam didn't know at the time.

Liam: Should've. Should've known. Should've absolutely known that hope would never betray me like that.

Wyatt: Well, yeah. Look, we all know she wouldn't do something like that. But you had only thought it happened for like a couple of hours. Like, not enough damage was done to, like--

Liam: Hey, can we--can we, like--can we stop talking about thomas? I'm not loving how much space he's occupying in my brain right now.

Wyatt: All right. Uh, are you sure you're okay? I--I mean, you've been acting really weird since we got here and...

Liam: I know. I'm--I'm--I'm fine.

Flo: I'm gonna go and leave you guys to have some time alone. Um, I need to run some errands anyway. So...

Wyatt: All right. I'll, uh, I'll see you home then. Okay. It's just us. Out with it. Whatever's bugging you, it has to do with thomas obviously. So...

Liam: It's partly thomas. The other part is steffy.

Steffy: I want us to be transparent with each other from this point forward.

Finn: It has to be if it's ever gonna work.

Steffy: Finn, my life's been messy, really messy ever since I was a kid. That's all I know. But you get me, you get my baggage.

Finn: I fell hard for you, steffy. And it had been a long time since I let myself trust someone.

Steffy: And I hurt you. I let you down. I didn't appreciate you the way I should. You've given me so much, finn. So much freedom from all this craziness and dysfunction with hope and liam.

Finn: But I need to be more than a distraction from all that, from all your feelings that you might have for liam.

Steffy: You are. You're more than a distraction. You are everything to me. You've been a blessing to me and to kelly. And I wanna continue that, finn. I wanna stay on this adventure with you. With you, finn.

Thomas: Steffy was upset earlier at the office. And things with her and finn seemed intense. They--they must've been talking about this.

Hope: Uh, I feel horrible for finn. And steffy betrayed him, too.

Thomas: He couldn't have been expecting anything like this. And he loves her so much. Yeah. I--I tried to warn him about liam, but nobody could have seen this coming.

Hope: [ Sighs ] I don't know. Maybe I should've been paying more attention.

Thomas: This is not your fault.

Hope: Well, I saw liam spending more time at steffy's that I figured it was just because of kelly or because he wanted to keep an eye on finn. But, uh, now this just has me questioning everything, you know. He turned to steffy that night, what makes me think that he won't do it again whenever he's feeling insecure? And, yeah, sure he was drinking, but that's not an excuse. You know, he knew what he was doing. He knew he was married, but he stayed over anyway. He knew that it could destroy our family and he did it anyway. And... and that's what hurts the most.

If you have postmenopausal


Wyatt: I have never seen you in such a foul mood.

Liam: I'm not in a foul mood.

Wyatt: You're in a foul--

Liam: I'm not in a foul mood.

Wyatt: This is crazy.

Liam: I'm--I'm--I'm in a foul mood because I'm freaked out about my future.

Wyatt: What? What are you talking about? Uh, what does this have to do with steffy? Oh, are we eating our feelings now?

Liam: Shut up.

Wyatt: Wait. Is that-- is that roast beef?

Liam: Don't--don't judge me right now. I have been--

Wyatt: You haven't had real meat since the '90s. And cheese?

Liam: Wyatt--wyatt, I was driving and there was a deli.

Wyatt: Oh, my god.

Liam: It was right there, okay?

Wyatt: I need to have an intervention right now. What--

Liam: You don't need an intervention.

Wyatt: What the hell is going on? And you better save me some of those fries. Okay. I'm--I'm not gonna judge you. I'm your brother, all right? There is nothing that you could say that is worse than--than this picture that I'm looking at right now.

Liam: I hurt hope in the worst possible way.

Wyatt: What? Like, you left the toilet seat up or something?

Liam: Wyatt, the worst possible way.

Wyatt: Wait. Wait, you said this has to do with steffy? No. You're not saying. You and steffy? You--you and steffy? What?

Thomas: So, he thinks he sees me kissing you. And instead of confronting us, he just runs off to steffy's?

Hope: Which we already knew. Liam was upset by something that he thought he saw but he failed to mention the fact that he slept with steffy.

Thomas: Wow. And the--the fact that he could do something like this and, you know, him--him drinking, that's--no. That's not an excuse. Now, steffy is pregnant with possibly his child. It's just--this is a lot to unpack.

Hope: Yeah.

Thomas: This must feel like deja vu for you, him circling back to steffy again. It's--I feel awful that you're going through this. You--you are one of the most loyal and loving people that I know. You don't deserve this.

Hope: You know what? Thomas, please, stop. Okay? I--I don't want your pity.

Thomas: I'm not--I'm not pitying you. I'm just upset for you.

Hope: Okay. But I don't need that either. That's the last thing I wanna hear right now, that you were right, that you told me so, that liam, he'd let me down and he would always go back to steffy.

Steffy: I'll always care about liam. But it's a different feeling than how I feel about you.

Finn: But why do you wanna be with me, steffy?

Steffy: I can think of a million reasons why.

Finn: It can't be because liam's not available.

Steffy: It's--it's not. I like who I am when I'm with you. Like when you hold me as I fall asleep, how gentle and kind you are with your patients knowing that you will drop anything to take care of someone. I feel safe with you. I love the way you listen to my daughter and you make her feel like the most important person in the world. You make me feel that way, too. I want that for this child, for our child.

Finn: If I'm even the father.

Steffy: I hope you are. I really do. I don't know why I did what I did. What I do know is that I want you. I want you to be the father of this child.

Kids can change minds.

Wyatt: You're telling me that you and steffy?

Liam: Yeah. And that's not all.

Wyatt: Oh, come on. What?

Liam: She's pregnant.

Wyatt: Uh, yeah. Of course she is. That's--that's how these--yeah. That's--and it's yours?

Liam: It's--wyatt, it's either mine or finn'S. And steffy's gonna take a paternity test. So, I--I--I don't--I don't know.

Wyatt: My god, liam.

Liam: I know. I know. Okay? I know. I have an amazing wife, an incredible family. And what do I do? I--I throw it away because that's-- that's what I do best, right? That is what liam spencer does best.

Hope: You know the irony is that liam never wanted me to trust you. Like, he was always worried about you when really he was the one I should have been wary of all along. And I know you warned me not to put my faith in him and I didn't listen. I just--I--I don't really wanna hear that right now.

Thomas: That's not what I'm saying. I just--I feel awful about all this.

Hope: How do you think I feel?

Thomas: I just--I wish that liam had come in and confronted us. He would have seen that it wasn't you. It was a mannequin. And--and none of this would be happening.

Hope: Well, we can't go back to that night. We can't change what happened. So, what's the point of worrying, right? It's not productive. Going over it and over it in my head, it isn't helpful. It just makes it worse.

Thomas: I just feel like it's my fault.

Hope: Thomas, no one is blaming you.

Thomas: This all started because of me. And I'm not trying to point fingers at anyone. And I'm not trying to say I told you so. I don't care about being right. I care about you. And, yeah, I--I know it would make sense right now if I was just bashing liam. But--but I've had my fair share of bad behavior. I've acted terribly in the past. I've done awful things and you forgave me. And liam, liam made a terrible mistake. He was an idiot and he just broke your heart. But you have a family together. You're looking after douglas and beth and--and all of that is at stake.

Hope: What are you getting at?

Thomas: Liam loves you, hope. I can hear it in his voice when I overheard him saying, begging, you to forgive him. He doesn't wanna lose you. And he doesn't wanna lose the family that he has with you and the future you have together. And... look, I know that this pregnancy... steffy possibly carrying his child that-- that can make things really, really complicated. But... you just have to take this one step at a time. You cross that bridge when you come to it. But you cross it... with liam. Regardless of what happens from here on out... he's sorry for what he did and he loves you. So... maybe you should give him another chance.

Steffy: I know I hurt you. I betrayed your trust. And I can't say I'm sorry enough. But I promise to be truthful moving forward.

Finn: You need to be brutally honest, steffy. Don't just tell me what you think I wanna hear.

Steffy: Look, liam's always gonna be an important part of my life, okay? He's kelly's father. But I need to move on. I wanna move on, especially with you... especially if this child is ours. I know this pregnancy wasn't planned. But I really appreciate you saying regardless who the father is that you'll be there for me. I know there's a lot of emotions and a lot of things going on right now and I don't think the reality has really sunk in just yet. But I'm telling you this because I want a future with you. I wanna commit my life to you. And I'm hoping you want that, too. I really wanna know deep down, is that something that you want?

Steffy: If you wanna go, the door is right there. You can leave. I'm hoping that you don'T... but I'll understand if you do.

Finn: I've immersed myself in my career so much these past few years that... you know, I haven't allowed myself to open up to anyone... till you. And they say you can know in an instant. Well... I know. I know you regret what happened with liam. And sure, there will always be a level of betrayal, but... I believe it won't happen again.

Steffy: What exactly are you saying?

Finn: Well, this has been one hell of a rollercoaster. But... I love you, steffy. I want a family with you and want that child that you're carrying to be mine. I'm gonna believe that it is... so we can keep building a life and a future together, together with our child.

Steffy: [ Chuckles ]

Finn: [ Sighs ]
