Ridge: I wanted to go over the earnings report. Did you get those projections we talked about? Hi.

Steffy: Earnings? No. I--i haven't looked at them yet.

Ridge: But you think they're gonna be good, right? Hey. What's going on with you? Where did you go right now?

Thomas: Steffy's pregnant. It could be liam's child. I'm sorry. I know this is painful. I'm just--I'm trying to get my head around it.

Hope: Me too.

Thomas: I know this has got to be a challenge, hope, for even someone as forgiving as you. You and liam have already been through so much.

Hope: Yeah, we have.

Thomas: You've already survived so much. I think you could survive this too. And you have every right to be angry and to be devastated. Just don't react from that place. Don't throw it all away. Don't make the same mistake that liam did.

Liam: I mean, it's my fault. I know it's my fault. And I take full responsibility.

Wyatt: Yeah. A--a mea culpa is not cut it this time. Steffy's pregnant. And--and if you're the father, there are not enough sorrys in this world to make her feel better. So then what were you thinking? You were devoted to hope. What the hell happened?

Steffy: I got distracted. That's all.

Ridge: That's been happening a lot lately. You just haven't been yourself. And I know you don't expect me to solve your problems but it'd be nice if you open up to me a little bit.

Steffy: Dad, it's really sweet that you're concerned about me but I'm fine.

Zende: Donna just told me to walk in.

Steffy: Zende, what--what is it?

Zende: The sewers just finished making changes to number seven. I wanted to show them to zoe. I tried to text her, but my phone's been acting really weird. I think I'm gonna do a full reset, but I thought one of you might know where she is.

Zoe: Right behind you. I'm always here for you, zende.

Zende: Am I interrupting something? Because, uh, we can--

Steffy: No. No. I'm--I'm fine. All good. But if there's something you need to know, I would tell you. But right now, there isn'T.

Wyatt: I'm just-- I'm trying to understand how you could do something so--

Liam: I know. I know.

Wyatt: It just doesn't make any sense, liam. You're a--you're a decent guy. You have two amazing women in your life. And, yes, that's caused problems in the past, but I thought that the three of you had finally worked that out. And then you go and--and you sleep with steffy? How could you do--how could you do that to hope?

Hope: Don't make the same mistake as liam?

Thomas: Don't let the emotions of the moment override your judgment. I know it's happened to me before, and I made mistakes because of it. And you might find yourself in the future wishing that someone had stopped you and told you to think about your family and your future.

Hope: Is that what you're telling me, thomas? That you think I should forgive liam? Get this, I have my stouffer's bowl-fulls

Ridge: I really like the energy that's coming from the hope for the future team.

Zoe: Yeah. We're all really in sync and connected.

Zende: What did you think of the last batch of designs?

Ridge: Hmm? Oh. Uh... it's good, cohesive.

Zende: Hope has made her vision very clear to us.

Ridge: It's amazing when that happens. Right, steffy? You agree, don't you? Are you with us?

Steffy: Uh, yeah. Yes. Uh, you were talking about the line. Uh-hmm.

Ridge: We're talking about hope's vision.

Steffy: Uh-hmm. Yeah. And she wants her collection to be one of the best this year.

Zoe: Yeah, well, exciting things can happen when you work as closely as we do.

Ridge: Exciting things can happen, and they will. We're gonna look at your numbers right now.

Zende: We should let you get back to it.

Steffy: Oh, no. You can--you can stick here. I actually have to go.

Ridge: Where you going?

Steffy: Uh, I--I have an appointment. But we'll go over the numbers later.

Liam: I'm not trying to justify what I did. I mean, not any part of it. Not sleeping with steffy and certainly not keeping it from hope.

Wyatt: Uh, well, secrets and the spencer men. You'd think we'd have learned our lesson by now.

Liam: I have.

Wyatt: So... did you tell hope about--

Liam: Uh, yeah. I had to. I mean, honestly, I would have anyway 'cause it was just eating away at me, but, you know, then steffy found out she was pregnant, and that was it.

Wyatt: That's--that is just-- that is a pretty big bomb to drop on someone you love.

Liam: It was awful. It was just awful. I mean, you know what, it would have been bad enough just admitting to hope that I lost faith in her for an evening, but instead I had to pile on bad news after bad news after bad news.

Wyatt: Right. So in other words...

Liam: Yeah. Hope knows everything.

Hope: You're telling me to forgive liam for what he's done.

Thomas: Yes.

Hope: He gave--he gave up on us. He thought the worst of me. He betrayed our wedding vows.

Thomas: Because he thought he saw you with me.

Hope: Liam jumped to a conclusion that he should have known was wrong. Even steffy told him she didn't think it was true. And still that didn't stop them from--

Thomas: I get that, hope. I do. But you two are married. You made vows, for better or for worse. And right now things are tough. They're probably gonna be like that for a long time. And you don't deserve that. Liam messed up. He broke his vows. You didn'T. You wouldn'T. Those aren't just words to you. You made a promise to the man that you love. And that same part of you is the reason that you're not just gonna walk away without giving it a final shot. That's not who you are. Hope, you don't give in to negative emotions. You're not gonna let his mistakes derail your entire family. I believe that you can forgive liam. What's that? New snuggle supercare.

Zoe: Wow. Have you shown this to hope yet?

Zende: I haven't shown this to anybody yet. You're the first.

Zoe: I love it.

Zende: That's the reaction I was going for.

Zoe: [ Chuckles ] Were you, uh, thinking about me when you drew it?

Zende: Well, I kind of reveal all of my creative secrets, but you are hope for the future's lead model.

Zoe: Well, you know, you can be honest with me, zende, you know, about anything. Your creative process, your designs, your feelings for me.

Zende: You know how much I admire and respect you, zoe.

Zoe: I thought you said you're gonna be honest.

Zende: It's the truth.

Zoe: Yeah, but it's not the whole truth, is it? Like, we can't avoid the subject forever, zende.

Zende: I don't know what else there is to say. You are engaged to carter.

Zende: Yeah. And he wants to set a wedding date. But before I do, I feel like we should figure out if the sparks between us are real.

Zende: Sparks can be dangerous.

Zoe: Or they can be good. Look, zende, you can't deny our chemistry. I mean, we work well together in the office, but I'm pretty certain that we could be even more amazing in private.

Zende: Hey, ridge.

Ridge: Hey. You're still here. What's going on?

Wyatt: I mean, I'm not even gonna ask how hope took it 'cause I'm guessing devastated was an understatement?

Liam: Oh, man. She had no idea what was coming. And--and, you know, what's funny is before I told her about steffy, she was trying to console me. Like--like, you know, like I shouldn't beat myself up over what I thought I saw. She would never cheat on me. I don't have to worry about that. Yada yada.

Wyatt: That--that must have left a mark.

Liam: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Dude, it--it was brutal, because the whole time that she's trying to make me feel better, I was trying to confess.

Wyatt: Wow. I'm so sorry that this is happening to you. This is crazy. Do you, uh, do you need a place to stay?

Liam: Oh, that's--that's really nice of you to offer.

Wyatt: It's a legit offer, liam. I'm not trying to just be nice here. That's not what we do.

Liam: Yeah, no. I know. Here's the thing. Um... hope didn't throw me out, you know? And she could have. She--she could have and I would have totally understood. In fact, I wasn't even sure I was even gonna get her to listen. But she did listen, and she was really strong, you know? She--she even got to a point in the conversation where she said, you know, she might be able to forgive me and we might be able to move forward. And that's just--that's a testament to her, right? That's how amazing hope is.

Wyatt: Yeah. And how lucky you are too, right?

Liam: But... I still had to tell her that steffy's pregnant and I might be the father.

Wyatt: Oh, this was before? Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Liam: Yeah. Exactly. So now I don't even-- I don't know. I don't know where hope and i are at. I--I don't know if we're gonna make it through this.

Thomas: I understand why you're surprised.

Hope: You've never really been that forgiving of liam yourself.

Thomas: No. And I don't think that's changed. I don't think he appreciates you. I don't think he appreciates steffy. He's pinned you two against each other over and over again, and I never thought that was gonna change.

Hope: But now you do?

Thomas: I wish I could say yes but that would be a lie and I--I promised that I would never lie to you again.

Hope: Okay. So... you don't think liam is good for me but you want me to forgive him.

Thomas: Doesn't matter what I think about him. I mean, the guy hates me. He probably always will. What matters is how you feel about him. Look, I-- I am not advocating for liam. I am angry as hell with that guy. But... you love him, and you've made a family with him, and it's an amazing family. And you're looking after beth and douglas. Hope, I-- I cannot inject my own feelings when your family is at stake.

Hope: I don't want that family to fall apart, but every time I look at liam all-- all I can see is steffy.

Dr. Campbell: I am sorry I had to step out.

Steffy: Hi. Uh, do you have the test results, dr. Campbell?

Dr. Campbell: Uh, not yet, but we should have them very soon. A lotta folks ask me how to

Zoe: I was just telling zende how much I admire him, his talents as a designer.

Zende: I'm working on a new sketch.

Zoe: Yeah. Zende is really good at knowing what women want.

Zende: I've learned from some of the best designers in the world.

Ridge: Well, right now, the woman wants your amazing talent to the cutting room downstairs.

Zende: On it.

Ridge: I have another meeting. Everything okay with you?

Zoe: Yeah.

[ Phone chimes ]

Wyatt: Look, on the bright side, I mean, come on. Nobody's more forgiving than hope, right? After everything that thomas has done, she's-- she's forgiven him.

Liam: Yeah. True. Just... I don't know if she's gonna be able to accept what I've done to our family, especially now that I might be the father of steffy's child.

Dr. Campbell: My apologies. I had a patient who's in early labor.

Steffy: Yeah. I can see that you're busy, but I'm just relieved that you were able to squeeze me in.

Dr. Campbell: Oh, I think you'll feel even better when I give you your lab results. The home test you took was accurate. You're pregnant.

Steffy: Yeah. The way I was feeling, I was pretty sure I was.

Dr. Campbell: Yet I'm still sensing some apprehension from you? You had a successful pregnancy with kelly. I don't think you have any reason to worry.

Steffy: Look, I--I loved being pregnant with kelly. You know, I adore being a mother. And I always wanted to give kelly a brother or a sister. Being a mother is like the greatest gift I could ask for. But this pregnancy is just, um, I wasn't expecting it. The timing is off. It-- I need you to do another test as soon as possible. Today, if you can. I need to do a paternity test.

Hope: I thought there was a chance I--I could get over liam and steffy, but a pregnancy? Knowing that liam might be the father. That they miht have another child together.

Thomas: It's not ideal.

Hope: Steffy is a great mom. Liam is an amazing dad. I'm sure finn will be a wonderful father too. But if this baby is liam'S...

Thomas: Then you feel like you'll be caught in the middle again.

Hope: Does that make me selfish?

Thomas: It's not possible.

Hope: Because it feels like it. Just hoping that liam isn't the father so that I don't have to deal with the reality of...

Thomas: It's not selfish to want some quality time with your family, to be there with beth and douglas and liam. I know how much you want that. I also know that you were able to forgive me... after everything I did, after everything I put you through. And if you can forgive me, I know you can forgive him. And as much as I criticize him, I know he loves you. I mean, he's an idiot. He makes mistakes. He made some terrible decisions, and he could probably get his vision checked. But, uh, he's your husband. And I know you love him. And you built an incredible family with him. One that I'm very grateful for. Do it. Do it for the family. Do it for beth. Do it for douglas. But also, hope, do it for yourself. Because I know it's what you really want. And maybe--maybe you think it's not possible for you to forgive him, and I know it's gonna be tough, but... if anyone can get through this with goodness and grace, it's you. Forgive liam.
